ainsley: two world leaders forging their relationship. steve: you know who loves a parade john roberts who is live in paris [applause] steve: they are not applauding for him. ainsley: yes, they are. jon: applauding for your program this morning. good morning, steve, brian, and ainsley. bastille day parade is wrapping up with the perform means of a precision band, sort of a military version of the college bands that we see perform at halftime during the bowl games where they spell out letters across the field and very poignant appointment right after they began the marching band formed the letters nice. last year someone mowed down 86 people. president trump with a show of
3:05 am
solidarity. the president also got a chance to review some american troops at the beginning of this parade because this parade also marks the 100 year anniversary of the u.s. entering into world war i. some 200 u.s. service members were participating in the parade, including five that were dressed in the uniforms from world war i of course, in the united states had not gotten into this war in 1917, the history of europe may have been very different. the two presidents got together yesterday at the palace the official president of french president emanuel macron to have a bilateral meeting and then met the press. president trump speaking openly to the press for the first time about this new firestorm of controversy surrounding his son donald trump jr. at a meeting he took with a russian attorney back in july of 2016. who, supposedly, had some information about hillary clinton that she wanted to share. this attorney, natalia came away with no information about hillary clinton.
3:06 am
merely wanted to talk about the russian adoptions. so the president yesterday raising questions as to how and why she got into the country in the first place. listen here. >> the lawyer that went to the meeting. i see that she was in the halls of congress, also. somebody said that her visa or her passport to come into the country was approved by attorney general lynch. now, maybe that's wrong. i just heard that a little while ago. but, it's a little surprise here. >> so after the president said that i reached out to the department of justin as well as the department of homeland security and here is what i found out. she was allowed into the country called immigration parole so she could participate in a court case of a client of hers. she was paroled into the country several times until february of 2016 when that parole ended and she reentered the country in june of 2016 on
3:07 am
nonimmigrant visa. that entry into the country she has a meeting with donald trump jr. steve, ainsley, brian? he. ainsley: that was beautiful. french flag and american flag out there. steve: looks like the conclusion of the event. we do expect the president of the united states very shortly. he and the first lady and presidential team. there you see the president of the united states stand along with the president of france. brian: also the reason why the flag is so important this year it's been 100 years since we joined world war i and our troops came over. steve: let's go ahead and listen in. ♪ national anthem] [national anthem] ♪ [national anthem] ♪ [national anthem] ♪
3:08 am
[national anthem] ♪ [national anthem] ♪ [applause] steve: how great is that? donald trump and the first lady who are the guests of honor at bastille day. listening to our national anthem. and they are very shortly going to be departing for the airport and they are going to fly to europe and then they are going to chop tore somerset and then the president will weekend at his golf club in bedminster, new jersey. ainsley: wonderful to see that bond continue to grow. unbelievable that world war i was only 100 years ago. steve: that's right. brian: 100 years ago.
3:09 am
our troops were marching in to the teeth of a raging war down that very street 100 years ago. many of which would not return home. but that also forges the bond between the nations as they recast our history and their history together and how our freedom spurred their freedom with the storming of bastille. steve: you have got to wonder whether or not as he was sitting there for the last hour or so the president of the united states was thinking, okay, i have got to get back on the plane. i have work to do. he has already been tweeting this morning just about an hour ago while he is there in france. he has actually been thinking about what's going on here in the united states of america. yesterday, the senate republicans unveiled their latest plan to repeal obamacare. it's going to be rough sledding. the president trying to apply a little pressure, tweeted out a couple of tweets. ainsley: that's right. the first one was republican senators are working hard to get their failed healthcare replacement approved. i will be at my desk, pen in hand. referring to the fact that he is ready to sign. this he has his pen in hand.
3:10 am
and he is ready as soon as the senators and then the house members get on board. brian: the other tweet is, important representative senators under leadership of senator mitch mcconnell get healthcare plan approved after seven years of obamacare disaster. this must happen. which is true. i mean, even democrats would tell you. there has got to be changes. current system is not being overturned. it's being replaced because it's failed. that's what they want to get out. what republicans have to realize is your obligation is to make this better or if you prefer, and susan collins prefers it. you deal with democrats. but they will now have leverage and look even for many republicans even more of a disaster. ainsley: continues to remind the folks out there if this does not pass, it is not his fault. he is in the white house. he has his pen in hand. he is ready to sign. brian: can he sit there with mitch mcconnell or healthcare expert that know he is the nitty gritty of this and quality governors in the states in which these senators are just having a trouble
3:11 am
voting. if their governors green light them, portman and company will do it. do maine governor and governor kasich if they can find out what they need and see if they can put that in the plan, then the senators will do what the governors want. they are hamstrung by their constituents and their governors feel they have their constituents in mind. the president can do that. steve: here is the problem with the latest version. it's not a very good bill. what it would do is allow insurers cheaper plans homage to tid cruz. he is he is willing to go ahead and to go ahead with the procedural vote next week it does keep the taxes though on some of americans which they had promised to get rid of. and just like with the first obamacare, where nebraska got the cornhusker kick back, in this one there are millions of dollars built in simply to get the vote of lisa murkowski. she is the senator from the great state of alaska. there are millions of dollars in there that will only impact
3:12 am
alaska. so, kick back wise, they have baked kick backs into alaska. brian: the problem is, mitch mcconnell says i can't get moderates while keeping those taxes in place. and i can't get conservatives if i don't get rid of those taxes. so, he doesn't want those taxes in there. but he is saying that moderates will be destroyed if it's played the way democrats are playing it and that is you are giving a tax break for the rich. we all know the president hammered the people who are -- those horrible people that made over $200,000 last year with a 4% tax. i get that so the republicans said i'm going to take that away. the moderates said wait a second, then it looks like we are just kissing up to the rich giving them a break. steve: ultimately, the u.s. congress voted a number of times to repeal and replace it they don't repeal it you know, they chew on it around the edges. there just isn't enough change with it. but, ultimately, the president needs a win.
3:13 am
and the people in congress need a wins a well. because they are are going to go back home. ainsley: is it about. steve: no wins on the board. so there is a possibility, although. brian: saying take it. ainsley: is it about the individual states or what's best for america? g.p.s.ing to to collapse. steve: ultimately best for america. this is not a good bill because it's politics everybody wants a win. are they going to go ahead and sign off on this right now at this stage? it is too close to call. they don't even know if they have enough votes to proceed. brian: that's the problem. even with those moderates being played up, to they still don't know, portman and collins if they will vote to even debate it. ainsley: we will be talking about it all morning. you are looking at president macron, the president of paris there at the podium. our president is there, too. as soon as this ceremony wraps up, our president is coming home because this will be the end of the celebrations for bastille day there in paris. steve: of course, president macron would have the president of the united states sign onto the paris climate
3:14 am
agreement because he said maybe we will undo ourselves. somebody who is big on climate is al gore. he just compared the climate change battle to struggles like slavery. inconvenient truth about that coming up. for your heart...

3:18 am
as we look admah krohn make final remarks as we see the procession. we will continue to cover this as the president gets set to board air force one and come back to new jersey for the weekend. it's been a really positive trip for our president and for macron. both are in their rookie years and both realize the significance of the positions that they have. meanwhile, the debate here at home, believe it or not, according to some is acclimate change. heats up as president trump leaves the door open, kinda to the paris accords. former vice president al gore comparing climate change to the struggles of he former struggles like slavery. here is michael waltz. does it drive you crazy when you know what it's like to fight terror, you see what happened in nice one year ago today and people think climate change is something that has to be addressed like terroris terrorism? >> these aanalogies to slavery, women's suffrage
3:19 am
movement and all the other things that the vice president were talking about were a little ridiculous and little emotional. if we can look at this in practical terms in national security and jobs, there is no doubt that areas that are going through drought and famine and that are drying up are places that terrorists take advantage of. like boko haram in nigeria, al shabaab in somalia. they take advantage of these places and these people to spread their islamic extremist ideology. the world is warming up. let's talk about why. let's focus on how the renewables energy market can create jobs in the united states and around the world. there is just a reasonable way to have this conversation. brian: exactly. the president didn't want the paris accord. he thought it was a bad deal for america. doesn't mean that environmental causes don't matter. there has got to be a bunch list. the thing on top of the bunch
3:20 am
list has to be radical islamic terror. and the average american gets that, i would hope. here is what the former vice president said and by the way almost everything in his documentary has not come true as he thought the world would be basically over by now. he said this yesterday. and we will roll it forward. the climate movement is right now in the tradition of all the great moral causes that have improved the circumstances of humanity through our history. the abolition of slavery and antiapartheid movement in south africa. the movement to stop the toxic nuclear arms. they have all met with ferocious resistance. what a leap. look, let's just look at mac particular call as you said a bunch list and practical solutions here. i look at things scare me for both me, my family, and my country like constant cyber attacks on our electrical grid and on nuclear power plants. i can tell you i'm personally looking at solar panels in my home just to pull it off the grid.
3:21 am

steve: fox news alert. president trump has just left downtown paris on his trip to the commemoration of bastille day. there you can see the president of france, emanuel macron and his wife meeting some of the folks there. the president macron is expected to head to nice later on today where it was just a year ago today that an extremist in a truck killed dozens of people in nice. the president very shortly will be arriving at the airport, hop on air force one
3:25 am
and come on home. meanwhile, back here at home, the left remains so obsessed with the russia story that now at least one top democrat suggests that we should bomb russia for me meddling in our election. watch this. >> we were and are under attack by a hostile foreign power and they seem to be abetting that hostile foreign power. we should be debating how many sanctions we should place on russia or whether we should blow up the kgb or gru. i mean, we should be retaliating massively because, by the way, if i were a trump supporter. it ha has tainted their victory. steve: do rank and file democrats believe that? director of strategic. adrian elrod. good morning. >> good morning. steve: former speech writer for george w. bush mark thiessen. >> good morning. steve: says it is time to blow them up. what do you think.
3:26 am
>> the point is he trying to make there should be stronger sanctions in place. that is something that donald trump and his administration should be focused on. i mean, look, again, we are looking at an adversarial government that was actively trying to influence our election process. there should be stronger punishment. that was the point he was trying to make. steve: adrian, you know, if the president of the united states last year, barack obama, knew in the middle of the summer that apparently the russian wrs trying to mess around with our elections and, yet, he didn't do anything until after the election. >> yeah. look, you know, i think he should have done more. i agree with adam schiff, he is the ranking member on the house intelligence committee. the ranking democrat that i think the president -- president obama should have done more and should have been a little more out there on this. again, we are looking forward. we have got to absolutely get to the bottom of this. that's why we have bob muriel and congressional investigative committee looking into this matter. did you but, again, going back to what paul begala was saying
3:27 am
we have got to have stronger punishments on a country was that actively trying to influence our elections process toward one particular candidate. steve: okay, mark, what do you think? >> first of all, i'm the first to tell you that the donald trump jr. emails were very troubling. but, donald trump's best defense against the charges of russian collusion are his policy. he can honestly look the american people in the eye and say no one has been tougher on russia. we haven't had a president this tough on russia since ronald reagan. he bombed putin's ally in syria. few weeks ago they shot down syrian warplane. accused the russians of violating the imf nuclear treaty. accused the russians of taliban. he just reintroduced a energy deal with poland that is starting to make poland less dependent on russian energy so they're not influenced by russia pressure. he sent 1,000 troops to poland. these are not policies that vladimir putin want. steve: right. >> the idea that he is somehow -- if the russians
3:28 am
bought the trump administration to be -- for trump to be a russian puppet, it's kind of back fired on them because the policies are not quite what they wanted. steve: that's a great point. the other thing is if there has been any russian collusion, it's not from the trumps, from what we can see, it's the dnc operative who went over to the ukraine to try to dig up dirt on donald trump. and then circulated it that's the collusion right there. >> well, i think that donald trump jr. emails are very, very troubling. i think we can't skirt over those things. what we know from the donald trump jr. emails, up until now i have been coming on fox regularly saying there is no evidence of collusion. donald trump jr. received emails saying the russian government wants to help donald trump and want to meet with you. and he said sure. steve: they didn't collude ultimately is what donald jr.'s father says. >> i disagree with that. they wanted to. he thought he was meeting with a russian government official. so, this is very troubling and, look, we have got a special counsel that's looking into this. let's let him do his job. right now donald trump's best
3:29 am
defense against all these charges are look at my policies. i mean, how long did it take him to meet with vladimir putin? seven months. he met with the chinese leader in the first few weeks. stick with the tough policies on russia. steve: adrian, i will give you the final word. >> first of all when it comes to dnc, that is a conspiracy theory that is being pedaled by the trump administration to try to deflect from their own problems. this is the contractor that we were talking about. but, look, i agree with mark, the fact is donald trump jr. was intending to collude, you negotiation this is exactly why we have investigations looking into this, but he was intending to collude with a government that had adversarial relationships. steve: you know there -- you both know there is a big difference between intending to collude and colluding. >> correct. steve: as it turned out she turned out to be a lobbyist who wanted to talk about russian adoptions. >> that's why we have investigations. >> he didn't know that he didn't think that meeting was about. but it is not a conspiracy theory that bill clinton took
3:30 am
millions of dollars from russia and hillary clinton enacted policy he is on uranium that benefited the people who was doing. this. steve: that's a whole another conversation. [laughter] steve: adrian and s. nodding her head. i am thinking we will do that another time. >> another time. steve: adrian and mark, have a wonderful weekend. >> you too. steve: former presidents george bush and bill clinton open up about their families. >> you both have grandchildren. what do your grandchildren call you? what are you called? steve: wait until you hear the answer coming up next. president trump heading toward air force one and to new jersey later today after paris trip. we sent abby huntsman to a diner in nearby new jersey. she is having breakfast with friends and it looks like she is pouring some coffee. good morning to you, abby. first, happy birthday to actor matthew fox. he is 51 years old today. ♪

3:36 am
and i didn't have to have the government to sustain my daily expenses. abby: you say you like the fact that president trump is trying to get back to those days, getting bake to coming here of the legal way, law and order in this country? >> that's the only way. that's the only way. why should you be given a gift of being here without having to pay for it in some ways with your work. but it is also due to the fact that we have had companies in california and other places that just welcome those because they are cheaper. so, our companies have a price to pay for it as well. they claim that they no american there willing to do work that the illegals do. and to some extent it may be true because sometimes i observe some of the people now, if i need some help the
3:37 am
kids don't give you help. when i was young, we used to do help, and it was beneficial. so,. abby: we have been talking about how times have change sod much and how millennials are less patriotic and they are all agreeing we need to get back to patriotism in this country. george is very shy. he may not open up to the camera. but i came to him first because he has been eating carrot cake. tell us how you feel the media has been doing. have you been talking to me all morning how you are sick and tired about hearing about russia so much. >> you know something, what we got here is the patriots. you notice how many democrats went with the falcons? it would have been great if they went with the eagles that represents more of america than the falcons. i think that the democrats went with the patriots? it's not so much about a deflated football, it's more a part of the word. they can't stand the word patriots. that's what trump is. he is doing something for the veterans. he is doing something for the entire country. abby: how come you think the
3:38 am
media focused on russia? does that bother you? >> yeah. it's like an 85% of cnn, the collusion news network and msnbc, the misinformed speculative news broadcasting company, 85% of their program, for program material for like 9 or 10 months already has been nothing but cnn collusion news network. all you do is go to cnn and you don't hear the news. you hear opinions. abby: bruce, you are nodding your head. >> yeah. i'm agreeing. i see all the time how these other news stations put so much time into nothing. there is no news anymore. abby: you are a steel worker here in this area, and you said this is the first time have you really gotten interested in politics. what would you like to hear more from the media? >> let's get back to what we used to do. i understand president trump is our president and about half of the world doesn't like him, but, come on now, let's go on with our days.
3:39 am
let's do what we used to do. i understand nobody likes our -- all this, you know, traditions, but, come on now. abby: and you were saying that as well, john, we were talking about patriotism. you say that it starts with the parents. >> it starts with the parents and it starts also with the fact that you -- if you have a value -- have you an inside value as well. if you are a lady person, when you are young, and you get away with it, then you grow that way. and this is what we have today. a bunch of cry babies. that we have. they want everything for nothing. there is no such thing. you don't survive that way. so we have to go back and whether you like it or not. who doesn't like it, take a hike and go to libya. abby: all right. we will leave it there, john, bruce, george. everyone has a lot of opinions here at the sun set diner. if you are in the area, please come and join us. we want to spend the morning with you.

ainsley: a moment of prayer for the president. this photo going viral of a group of pastors laying their hands on president trump's shoulders with his head bent in prayer. pastor jack graham of the preston wood baptist church in texas was there for the special prayer session in the oval office. he joins us now. good morning pastor, thanks for being with us. >> good morning, ainsley. it's good to be with you. ainsley: thank you. tell me about that meeting and how you ended up in the oval office with all the other evangelical pastors. >> we were there for a working meeting, actually, with the office of public liaison. it's a faith leaders' group. we were working away throughout the day. and middle of the afternoon we got a visit from jared kushner and then later the vice president who said the president wanted us to come over to the oval office. we weren't expecting it. it wasn't planned.
3:48 am
so we end up in the oval office about 25 of us and our group. and it was conversation. it was social. the president was welcoming and inviting. he is a very powerful personality. so friendly. so inviting to all of us. and so after a time of just regular conversation among friends. and that's what it felt like, just some of us had known the president for a while. some for many, many years. and so after an extended conversation, someone suggested that we pray. and we ended up huddling up around the president, around the oval office desk and the president as he bowed in prayer. he welcomed that he invited us to pray. it was an incredible moment, really. ainsley: what's incredible about this is someone else took this picture. it wasn't the official white house photographer. and we found it on social media. it's a beautiful, precious image of the highest office in the land praying to the highest supreme being which is just such a beautiful image.
3:49 am
who was leading the prayer and what did you say? >> a number of us prayed, two people actually voiced the prayer. we were all praying. you know, the idea of actually putting our hands on him or around him. when people pray they often hold hands to pray or maybe a football team huddles up in a circle to pray. it was like that. it was that feeling. and the president bowed his head. he recognizes his need for god. this wasn't contrived. it wasn't forced. it wasn't weird. it wasn't tense. it was a prayer among friends for the president of the united states who realizes his need for god. and needs the prayers of god's people. it's imperative we pray for our leaders, our president. vice president pence was there as well. and it's imperative. we're commanded to pray for our leaders. this wasn't unusual that we would pray. it wasn't fixed. it wasn't formed. it wasn't a photo op.
3:50 am
this photo went out from a public citizen. it didn't go out from the white house. ainsley: yeah. i believe god probably had a hand in that. pastor graham real quickly. as a minister, you know, did you ever think you would end up in the oval office praying to god for our president? >> no. you never expect that. you realize that it is a privilege. you know, it's a privilege that all of us have. we can all pray for our president. and in one sense i hope our hands on the president praying for him is a reminder for all of us to pray. as we are commanded for our president, for our leaders. ainsley: thank you so much, pastor graham for being with us. god bless you for praying for our president all you are doing. very important. >> thank you. ainsley: god bless you. counselor to the president kellyanne conway is going to join us live in the next hour. the president pick for fbi director testifying where he stands on key privacy issues affecting all of us americans. what do you need to know?

we don't have a full report on that yet. he heads back to the united states after what, for all intents and purposes appears to be a very successful relationship building exercise with the newly installed president of france emmanuel macron. a relationship building exercise that to some degree though was overshadowed by the political firestorm surrounding the meeting that his son don jr. had with that russian attorney in june of 2016. the president spent two hours here at the reviewing stand at the concord. reviewing the troops for the bastille day parade, including contingent of some 200 u.s. troops. the reason why they were in the parade. this marks the 100th 100th anniversary of america's entry into world war i. a turning points in 1917 that really kind of rescued france. god knows what the world would have looked like here in western europe had the united states not gotten into that war. at one point, too because this was also in defiance of what happened in nice last year, when the terrorists took a truck and ran down more than
4:06 am
500 people, killing 86 of them. a precision military marching band spelled out the words nice in front of the viewing stand. a very poignant moment there then there was a shot on the concord where the french and u.s. flags were displayed side by side as that same military band played the u.s. and french national anthems. emmanuel macron took to the microphone at the end of this parade to talk about the enduring friendship between the united states and france saying that the presence of president donald trump at his side was a testament that relationship is going to last the test of time. there were some disagreements between the two presidents in their bilateral meeting. specifically on the u.s. decision to withdraw from the paris climate accord. however, the french president said he was not going to let that one disagreement get in the way of the overall relationship. brian, ainsley, steve? brian: you know, john, i get the sense that president macron also didn't want that he kind of glazed over that too. where that would have been his opportunity to score some
4:07 am
domestic points and say very disappointed. instead, he moved on and he talked about things they agreed on. so i think they honestly seemed to have forged somewhat of a bond. i guess we will see down the line. jon: you know, he was -- french president macron before he became the president during the election campaign was very critical of the president's decision to pull out of paris. yesterday, at that press conference he said he respected the decision of president trump. it really does look like he wants to forge a very close bond with the united states. the body language between the two of them really is quite cordial. at the end of the parade it was all hand shakes and pats on the shoulder. a couple times macron grabbed the president by the shoulder. he really wants to make this relationship work because it's too important to squander. steve: speaking of body language, john roberts you are in such good shape i might say. thank you so much for the live report from paris. >> for a massive my age. steve: no, no. famous quote from this particular trip. >> famous quote for the trip.

4:10 am
the republicans are trying to solve moderates' problems and conservatives' needs. these are 52 people all with things they simply have to have. that's why people say for success, if the president wants to help them, we know he does, he is -- comes to this. his skills are with peer. tell the governors what you need. especially the republicans that took the free money. steve: well, at this stage, there is not even assurance mitch mcconnell doesn't even know for sure that they are going to have the procedural vote to take the big vote. ultimately, if that were to happen, then, remember what the president tweeted about a week or two ago, and that was if they can't get what they're intending to do in the senate done, just do a repeal. do a clean repeal and then work it out that waziristan something that rand paul had suggested. and ultimately, when you look at this bill that was suggested yesterday and lindsey graham had one as well. they are great big casseroles of more taxes and more
4:11 am
regulations. it's not what they -- they, the republicans, had promised. i think a lot of people would be disappointed if it actually did pass. however, they would like to have some points on the board. ainsley: they definitely have to get it right. the problem with just repealing it like you were saying yesterday, it just delays the process. they are going to have to eventually replace it get it done but many are saying just get it done so they can focus on other things. other pressing issues as well. brian: like tax reform and infrastructure. if they fail to pass, this nothing shy of a disaster. the problem with repeal is for two years the markets, the average american doesn't have no idea what's going to be hitting them square in the face. there is no way if these guys can't even work two extra weeks, barely can work two extra weeks to get this done, what are they going to do after a year or two. there are going to be other things to distract them. they will never get to the replace part. ainsley: meanwhile get it over to jillian. jillian: good morning. get to a straight fox news alert right now. brand new gruesome details in

4:26 am
with this new ground breaking treatment, there is an 11 to 56% chance of meaningful, muscular recovery for little charlie gard. ainsley: is that the doctor from the united states that was saying that? >> yes. it was a doctor from the united states who is wanting to be able to treat charlie gard and as yet the high court has not allowed him to -- allowed charlie to be transferred to this doctor in the united states for treatment. ainsley: that sounds very positive. if a judge hears that 11 to 56% chance. so what are your thoughts. you are looking at the judge and looking at the reaction. do you think that the judge is going to side with the parents and allow charlie to come over here to the u.s. for that treatment? >> it's interesting. the judge asked for new evidence and he got it yesterday. there was just so much new evidence that this doctor provided and other doctors around the world who are looking to be able to give charlie that chance. the judge repeatedly said that
4:27 am
he intends to be very fair about this. he has an open mind. he is looking at all of the evidence. and he has an extremely positive reaction. ainsley: what about the parents? i understand they stormed out of the courtroom. i have heard once, i have heard twice. what's the truth there and why did they storm out? what made them so upset? >> well, the hospital, that they had hired to care for their son, and to treat him and to just love him in the same way that they did has instead, betrayed them. so it does make sense in a lot of ways. i know that i as a parent would be reacting in much the same way if i went in to court and had this same hospital fight me at every turn. so, they did leave the courtroom quite upset. i spoke with them during the break and then afterwards again. and. they retain so much hope. but they do -- they do feel disappointment and the process. and this hospital is fighting them. ainsley: what are they saying?
4:28 am
why wouldn't they just give this child a chance? why do they think that the parents need to pull the child off the life support? >> well, the hospital is saying that they are looking out for charlie's best interest. and they don't believe that it is in his best interest to give him this chance. what connie and chris, charlie's parents are looking for, is just that ability to get that second opinion. ainsley: right. >> they have a second opinion from doctors around the world who are interested in giving charlie that chance. and believe that he has a chance, a very significant recovery. steve. ainsley: real quickly, catherine, are we going to find something out today? will a judge make a ruling today? >> probably not a ruling today. it looks like this will probably extend into next week. and perhaps even on after that. but, there is a very important hearing today. and we'll just have to see where that goes. ainsley: okay. if you want to check out her website it's aul.org/i am charlie gard. thank you so much for being with us catherine glen foster. we appreciate it?

steve: 7:32 in new york city and washington, d.c. we have the counselor to the president donald j. trump kellyanne conway on the north lawn. good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: the president is on air force one right now heading back to the united states. what is the headline from his trip to paris? >> the headline is france and
4:33 am
the united states deepen oldest and very strong alliance. clearly the two presidents and their wives had a wonderful exchanges while they were there, bilateral meeting. the president was very honored to have the united states of america as the guest of the country of france for the 100th anniversary of the u.s. entering world war i. and of course to be there on bastille day. and i said this during his first foreign trip. i will keep saying it president trump really enjoys visiting countries around the world and heads of state and finds sitting down and finding out a way that we can work together. even countries where we don't necessarily agree on most issues. to sit down and figure out how to approach and tackle and perhaps solve the vexing issues of the day. and, of course, he did that with president macron. i'm just really struck that one year ago neither of these men held the position they hold now. steve that's right. >> when you look at them together it reminds you how quickly things can change when voters take matters into their
4:34 am
own hands. also, here at home. new healthcare bill happened in the senate yesterday. it's very exciting, frankly. i think if the senate does its work and gets something on president trump's desk, he will sign that into law. so he is going to return to a very busy domestic agenda here a as well. the president just completed his third foreign trip in seven weeks' time it's pretty remarkable. >> the president had a message for republican, for the congress members, the republican congress members. he was over there in paris and still tweeting at 4:00 in the morning our time eastern time and urging those republican senators to pass his agenda. he said he is in the oval office, going to be in the oval office ready with a pen ready to sign this thing. >> he is. we have had those discussions here. i think leader mcconnell and his members are working very hard. vice president pence has been our greatest asset on capitol hill all along but particularly this week. the result is an additional $70 billion in a stability fund and that is really a
4:35 am
supplement to us already there allowing people for the first time to use health savings accounts to pay their premiums. because we hear from americans all the time that those who even bother to have obamacare, they are having a difficult time meeting these premiums. so the fact that you can use health savings account money to do that, there is 45 billion in there for opioid funding. there are protections in there for those who are on medicaid, and, you know, so far the democrats, who everybody from bill clinton to sitting senators who have admitted that obamacare has not worked as well as it needed to or as the projection suggested it would be, they have only come to the table with two ideas. what ideas? a bailout for the insurance companies, which is temporary fix and number two an entire government takeover of our healthcare system. neither of those is plausible or supported by the public. they are very unserious in negotiations. leader mcconnell is working
4:36 am
with his conference. also, ted cruz's amendment made it into this latest version which means if you already qualify for an obamacare-type plan, that's right, you can get a lesser included plan as well. so, it's basically expanding the market for more individuals, but making sure that we're keeping those premium costs down and that medicaid is dedicated to those for whom it was originally intended. brian: you know, marco rubio just tweeted out. i don't want to get into the nitty gritty of it. he said i don't want states penalized that didn't take the free medicaid money which was on a credit card. >> that's right. brian: other states that did. if ohio says you better leave this in place. what does florida say? we never took the money that we shouldn't have had coming to us any way in production' view. i want to ask you this. we know the president loves to get his hands dirty in these things. interpersonal skills greatest asset. with the house he was calling lawmakers nonstop. with the senate i guess he was told thought it was best to let them work it out themselves. if he is asked to get involved
4:37 am
from jersey or the oval office, will he do it by calling governors to find out what they need to green light their senators? >> as you know, president trump is very hands on. he works the phones. he hosts meetings. we have had any number of members of congress and senators here, governors, frankly, over time. we have also had obamacare victims. we have had drug manufacturers. he has approached this from every different facet of the healthcare system because that was what -- that's one of the many things that was lacking in obamacare. this is a seven and a half year sinking battle ship and those turn slowly. the president is always involved. that said, it's up to the senate to put this legislation on his desk. he has made very clear he has pen in hand. while we are on the topic of healthcare if i may for me. because people just aren't going to hear about it unless we discuss it yesterday, attorney general sessions and secretary of health and human services secretary tom price announced the largest, let me get this right, the largest medicare fraud investigation. steve: sure.
4:38 am
>> and bust, really, in our nation's history. and, you know,. steve: a lot of the people in trouble. >> a lot of people in trouble over a billion dollars in fraud. and they went in protection of our consumers of americans. and they are busting up these people, these healthcare professionals who have violated their hippocratic oath and put greed in front of the patients. steve: sure, right. >> you see actions like this and you realize that we are trying to protect patients and americans through better healthcare reform but also by busting up the fraud and abuse in the system. steve: kellyanne conway, we will see whether or not they do get a vote in the senate on tuesday. that's first up. first, let's talk a little bit about the number one story on the other channels. and that's russia, russia, russia. you know, when it started, it looked like a don jr. got this email. he jumped at it he met with this woman. it looks like collusion. as it turns out, the russian story is starting to fall apart because it looks like she was just a lobbyist. and she met with a whole bunch of members of congress and state department officials and
4:39 am
members of the press and washington ohihoypaloy. >> moving the gool post. collusion that not only interfered with our election process but indeed dictate the electoral outcome. the only people that say that seriously these days is hillary clinton and nobody believes it we know why she lost. it's obvious. and, frankly, when i was campaign manager in those last several months. you know, when i needed negative information about hillary clinton, i didn't have to go very far. i looked at hillary clinton. she was a treasure trove. she was like a treasure box of negative hillary information with arms and legs. steve: kellyanne conway, people call you up all the time and say i have dirt on her and would you take a meeting with them? >> no. steve: the president said yesterday that that kind of occurrence happened all the time. >> it does. but in the case of hillary
4:40 am
clinton, it was all there to see. no, is he absolutely right in terms of people are always whispering i have got opposition here. or i have got information there. and sometimes people want to aggrandize their own positions. wish to be helpful. many meetings end up as a bust that aren't particularly meaningful, consequential or helpful to hear don jr. to speak of it. that's how he character rips this particular meeting. let's go back to your point. your essential point is that we're not telling the american people all the good that's happening in this administration. brian: right. >> for a couple of reasons. first is because of the russian obsession. as i call it the russian concussion. the russian percussion. secondly, and this doesn't get covered at all. it's a heck of a lot easier to sit around and scream russia, russia, russia, with no basis than to go learn the finer points of the new healthcare bill to. dig in and understand the simplicity and fairness and middle class tax relief in the fax plan being developed right behind me.
4:41 am
brian: i heard that in december the treasury sect secretary is going to release it kellyanne conway, to stop the critics, to stop the critics that want to trip up the trump administration all cost and some of which are on the right. do you believe that there should be everybody involved in the campaign and in the administration should once and for all go through all their communications, those little post-it notes, down to what they wrote on their hands to find out any type of interaction with any type of russian official just astray gowdy said to get it all out? >> every single colleague i know here at the white house and in the administration, in the campaign, even if they don't serve here, ladies and gentlemen have said they are willing to cooperate. they are willing to share whatever they know. whatever they have. so we have been forthcoming from the very beginning is that really going to shut down. ainsley: people would argue that's not true. that meeting happened a year and a month ago. people are wondering why don
4:42 am
jr. just didn't come forward and say that right after it happened. >> well, in terms of those who work here, who have been asked to cooperate, they have made very clear to their attorneys that they're willing to cooperate. and i know that some people's disclosure forms are recently amended. as i understand, that's how this has all been revealed. and i will tell you that this is an administration that talks about transparency, talks about sunlight and talks about, you know, full information. but, is this -- you know, the president calls it a witch-hunt. he calls it a hoax. others have said -- others who aren't particularly very fond of this administration have admitted that there is no there there. so, again, what kind of money are we going to spend by the taxpayers having these infinite investigations, and there are many of them. if we are going to do that fine, i suppose. but we really need to spend our time, also, telling people what's being done here for them. steve: sure. >> that's not being covered at all.
