2:02 am
[singing] >> that's beautiful. that is so beautiful. this is -- >> the president is the first american president to make saudi arabia or any mostly muslim country, this is his first stop overseas. tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m. eastern he is expected to deliver a major speech on terrorism and islam. all of this amid a blistering stretch back in washington with the investigation of the russians and the campaign gaining steam. a special counsel has been appointed as you know. senators pay the fired fbi director james comey has agreed to testify in public. it is a lot to cover tonight so stick with us. let's get started.
2:03 am
garrett tenney with the very latest on james comey. we begin with chief white house correspondent john roberts who has been traveling with the president today getting blown all over the place. those are the wind has finally died down. so john, what is the reaction to the president's visit there? >> just to give you a little context and perspective here we have an epic sandstorm. that they are so famous for in saudi arabia. it has cleared up and the wind is down. most of the sand is out of the air. it really was a day for circumstance but it was also a chance -- the president tonight dancing, this is a traditional saudi war dance. this is used for celebration. other known dances were president george w. bush and prince charles. the centerpiece of the day in
2:04 am
terms of deals, the arms deal between the united states and saudi arabia. the biggest single arms deal that has ever been put together by the united states. it will include money for border security and counterterrorism, coastal security, modernize the saudi air force, provide air and missile defense including a fad missile battery and cybersecurity and communications.the president today declared that this was a good day for us companies. listen to him. >> was a tremendous day and i want to thank everybody that tremendous investments into the united states military. the community is very happy and we want to thank you in saudi arabia. hundreds of billions of dollars of investments into the united states and jobs, jobs, jobs. >> jobs, jobs, jobs as well as weapons. what is the arms deal important? because it will help saudi
2:05 am
arabia fight terrorism and also serve the greater weight to a ron which saudi arabia sees as its greatest threat. it will also help pay dividends united states because saudi arabia will be more capable of meeting its own defense needs. here's the secretary of state. >> this huge arms sales package reduces the burden on the united states provides the same equivalent to our own military forces. and will strengthen the saudi security forces for the future so that the saudi arabian is more capable of carrying the burden of their own security. >> and saudi arabia has never had any problems buying weapons. the problem is that it just never gets the capability because it forces are not trained properly, they are not willing to fight. in fact, they spend number three on expenditures for defense but truly it was number
2:06 am
127 interim occasionally. and the deputy leaving this to reform the saudi military, that is going to take time. >> president trump has a very big speech tomorrow which is going to be taking place at 9:00 a.m. which will be karen karen fox. the much-anticipated tell me about it. >> this will be before 50 arab and muslim leaders at the arab islamic american conference. the president will talk about doing away with ideology and instead shared values seeing this as a point of cooperation. even cooperation with israel. basically saying that you have a chance to change the future and will encourage those nations. >> thank you very much john roberts. later in the trip the president will be going to the vatican to make pope francis. one potential topic, the vatican's new ambassador. the president nominating the wife of former house speaker newt gingrich to be the us ambassador to the vatican.
2:07 am
the speaker converted to catholicism for him. -- previously worked as a congressional it in the house of representatives and is president of the gingrich charity foundation.the position had to be confirmed by the senate. >> the senate intelligence committee announcing form fbi director james comey has in fact agreed to testify in public. the question is whether he will be allowed to or if he will actually get the chance to. the committee moving forward with the investigation into russia and the trump campaign. although at this point have been no evidence of collusion. while nearly a appointed rubber mailer takes over the of fbi investigation. some are expressing concern that the public testimony can make things harder for the bureau he once led.>> there's no upside for molar and special counsel to have james comey testify in a public hearing of this sort.
2:08 am
it was a closed-door hearing and it was just giving the senators an update of where he left off so they know where the transition is, that is fine. publicly, that may not help muller's case. and while there may ask his good friend james comey to please not do it. >> garrett tenney reporting live from washington. is it possible that comey does not testify before the senate intelligence committee? >> not only is it possible, several lawmakers are saying they would be surprised if he was even allowed to testify by newly appointed special counsel robert muller. last night senator lindsey graham tweeted out a statement saying in part, i very much appreciate james comey's willingness to publicly testify about his conversations with the president and other relevant matters. i am surprised he will do so given the fact we have a special counsel will likely be investigating matters related to the conversations. as special counsel robert muller is heading up the fbi's criminal investigation into russia's election meddling.
2:09 am
because it could lead to criminal charges, that investigation takes precedents. they could ask him not to testify so as to not jeopardize the case. for now though or at least until we are told that the intelligence committee will likely schedule the appearance for sometime after memorial day. >> if the hearing does indeed happen, hypothetically, there is no shortage of questions lawmakers have for james comey. what do they have up their sleeves? >> not at all! especially given the number reports have come out over the last few weeks involving james comey, the president and russia. they said back in february the president asked then directed james comey to enter the fbi investigation into former national security advisor michael flynn. that report comes from a personal memo that james comey wrote allegedly shortly after that move in.and if it's accurate some democrats say
2:10 am
that this is obstruction of justice. the white house has strongly denied the president ever asking anyone to end any investigation and several gop lawmakers reported that james comey never mentioned the memo or raise any concerns about the president when he testified last month on capitol hill. but others in the party are saying, these reports need to be looked into. >> we have to get to the bottom of this. find out what was actually said between the two. it could be a he said, he said situation. but we are talking about former director of the fbi who has enormous credibility and as a man to be taken very seriously. >> and fact we learned that this particular memo is just one of many. and no surprise that lawmakers say they're very interested in reviewing all of the documents. >> thank you so much. all of this makes for a can't miss fox news sunday. you have to watch chris wallace talk to secretary of state rex

eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.
