sunday. wow. it is that season still. i am harris faulkner. glad you're watching this hour. a lot of news to be made. we're watching it on fox news print let's go straightaway to "shepard smith reporting," hosted today city and for him, jon scott. >> jon: president trump tweeting up a storm after a report that his own vice president is already looking ahead to a possible white house run in 2020. also firing back, vp mike pence. the details and the tweets. the president hitting the 200 day mark with some of his biggest agenda items in limbo. after the health care failure, will tax cuts be any easier? we will talk with analysts from both sides of the aisle. north korea is threatening to make the u.s. pay a price thousand times bigger than what is called the crime of new u.n. sanctions. scientists who study earthquakes are on the front lines of the nuclear showdown. that is all ahead this hour.
♪ i am jon scott and for shepard smith. president come kicking off his 200 day in office praising his record and supporters. this money, the president tweeted, at the trump base is far bigger and stronger than ever before despite phony fake news polling. look at rallies and pennsylvania, ohio, and west virginia. the rallies in russian conversion story record stock market, border security, military strength, jobs, supreme court pick, economic enthusiasm, deregulation, and so much more have driven the trump base even closer together. it will never change. the president's tweet come after "the new york times" reported vice president mike's gimmick mike pence may be running if president trump decides not to run. the vice president calls it laughable and absurd. in a statement released yesterday, he also said, today's article in "the new york times"
is disgraceful and offensive to me, my family, and our entire team. the american people know i could not be more honored to be working side-by-side with the president, who is making america great again. vice president mike pence is expected to visit president trump and jersey. laura ingle is live in bridgewater new jersey not far from the golf club where he stayed right now. lori, there is even more push from the vice president's team. >> hello, john. there was a fact. the priest that ran in "the new york times" over the weekend set off a flurry of activity, and denial from vice president mike pence's camp. we want to get to that now over that we. calling the suggestion that he is preparing a shadow campaign to run for the oval office in 2020 is laughable and absurd while declaring his loyalty to the president. they noted that the president had set up political fund-raising organization called "great american committee."
helping key figures at his mansion as of late. today's press secretary appeared on "fox & friends" to further push the idea that mike pence has plans to run. >> it is absurd and what you have here is speculation, conjecture, half-truths about masquerading as news on the front page of the never-trump, "new york times" ." nothing supportive. he is supportive of the president. >> "the new york times" pushing back as well same comment there confident in their reporting in the story will tell itself, jon? >> and going after the democratic senator from connecticut, richard blumenthal. >> it has been an interesting morning, and a good day. it is actually pouring in bridgewater, new jersey. earlier this morning, the connecticut senator cues the trump administration in a televised interview of a weapon the justice department for personal and appeared that sent him straight to twitter,
blasting him in several tweets same, he told stories about his vietnam battles that he lied, ad beg for forgiveness like a child adding, now he judges collusion. and he also treated this. interesting to watch senator richard blumenthal of connecticut talk about post-russian collusion when he was a phony vietnam con artist. blumenthal held a press conference today after all this and after the twitter, said, his obligation to speak truth to power it will not back down on his end. >> they are slurs and i am not going to be distracted or bullied by them. these tweets are part of the kind of intimidation and threats that he has made against the federal council, against anyone who seeks to uncover the truth. >> in another tree,
mr. president, your bullying have not worked before and want to now. nobody is above the law. jon? >> jon: and anyone as much as someone wants to stay inside on a deal like this. president trump had said he's headed to new york next week? >> it's a big deal. we have been monitoring his activity, and this will be a first for president trump, and that is one of the first tweets of the day. that's when the first ones we got this one. notes plans to travel to new york what he said would be more meetings. another reminder to the public that he considers this a working vacation. again, it is the first time that president trump returned, something stayed away from saying the high cost of security and disruption it will bring to the city. the white house press offense tells us that president trump has been busy and received an intelligence briefing today and a one hour phone call with secretary of state rex tillerson and chief of staff, general kelly. president trump by the way tweeted again in case you did
now, purple heart day. he said, all the brave men and women who have sacrificed in battle for this great nation. the fact, jon, he tweeted it, because he retreated his own tweet on that one. >> jon: laura ingle, thank you. republicans in congress have missed their own deadline to deliver on some of presidents direct president trump's own agenda. trying to finish before he marks 200 days in office. as i mentioned, that is today. so far, republic and lawmakers have not repealed and replaced obamacare. deb not come up with a plan to work on the tax code and the wall on the southern border. that's all they face may go to the hill after labor day. peter doocy live in our d.c. newsroom. peter, what are some republic and leaders saying about not accomplishing their agenda before the break? >> when ryan got to wisconsin for reese's coming he told
constituents he thinks the country is going on a bad path that they cannot capitalize on having a unified government. they control everything. back in january, he explained it 200 days was plenty for health care and tax reform. >> we have ambitious goals and timelines. our goal is to get these laws done in 2017. we aspire to get most of these big things done by the august recess, because that is when congress is most of its legislating. >> nancy pelosi says, despite having full control of the legislative process, the republican congress have not lifted a finger to wits back invest in our instructor or avoid our credit on unisys. instead, wasting much to tear away families health coverage. i just heard from someone who is passing things like health care and military. once i get to there, there backed up in the senate. >> jon: and what about
president trump is inner circle. what about his be installed that? >> there is frustration, jon. inside congress and outside. >> look at the obstacles we face. we have a media, mainstream media, who is detrimental to the president, and he has a false hoax story. democrats are abstractions, and republicans who are not ready for the president to take over on day one. >> i know the democratic congressional campaign group says in a matter 200 days, paul ryan has already put vulnerable republic is at further risk of losing their seats and damage to the entire republican brand ahead of the 2018 midterm. that could mean lawmakers will be worried about campaigning while legislating, which could make things work allocated. he went back it's messy. peter doocy, thank you. as a pressure builds on republican's and congress to get
something done, analysts are considering the unthinkable. working with the other side. will democrats and publicans be willing to sit down at the table together? will take it to our hear both sides, next. ...isn't it time to let the real you shine through? maybe it's time for otezla (apremilast). otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable after just 4 months,... ...with reduced redness,... ...thickness, and scaliness of plaques. and the otezla prescribing information has... ...no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't use if you're allergic to otezla. otezla may cause severe diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. tell your doctor if these occur. otezla is associated with an increased... ...risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have... ...a history of depression... ...or suicidal thoughts,... ...or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla...

district are suppressing them to root repeal and replace obamacare after failing to get it done thus far. meantime, when they return next month, lawmakers have 12 days to come up with a budget to avoid a government shutdown. let us bring in our political panel. formal democratic minority leader in ohio senate. executive in residence at macon university school of public affairs. in republic and, ned ryan, former writer for george w. bush and writer for a political training institute. thank you both for being here. ned, i will start with you. what you think are the prospects are democrats and republicans sitting down together and, i don't know, breaking bread and getting something done for a budget deal? >> i will say this. democrats have been good at being obstructionist. at the same time, republicans have two come-to-jesus moment. there in the driver's seat.
voters have put them in the driver's seat. if you look at the poll from last week, congress approval rating is 10%. the staggering part of that 14% of republicans approved a republican-led congress. when they come back in september, they have to do something. they have to sit down. i would advise him after the whole health care debacle, jon. they have trouble seemingly walking and chewing gum. keep it simple, stupid. come in with a short list that they can actually have discussions with democrats. there are ten democrats in red states and reelection in 2018. conversation how they take the corporate tax system and re-preach it direct to make and then you can fund the wall and fund some of the democrats pet projects. i do tax cuts for the middle class.
99% of employee firms are small business. a a lease small businesses. >> jon: as a chance to get off the, kate. what about that. democratic obstructions, there has been a push among democrats repealing and replacing obamacare. >> the informal care act hold a lot of possible for the democratic party. and rightfully so, they are taking credit for the fact that because of the grassroots outreach to members of congress, particularly in the united state senate, they were able to derail by very slim margins the potential for repeal and replace obamacare. we also have to remember, there are number of polls that suggest their american public want to actually fix the affordable care act, not just get rid of it entirely.
the way that the american public has approached the affordable care act has changed in some way or form over the last month for a potential of a going away has become a reality. i believe it is about 57% in the most recent poll that said, 50% of americans want democrats and republican to come together for health care to reform and not just fix. the failing aspects of the affordable care act. i do agree with ned. it will be tough to make a heavy lift right now. on the issue of health care if we are going to do tax reform, you have to have a small of things. there's a huge gap between democrats and republicans in many states on the issue of tax reform and what that looks like. i think they might be better if they want to buy person manner and infrastructure. >> jon: and keeping the government open at the end of the month. >> money! >> jon: i want to ask you about a saturday story from
"the new york times." vice president mike pence is quietly building his own campaign organization to jump in the case president trump were not to run in 2,020. they are denying that. what do you think? 's booth as well they should. it is up to donald trump in many ways to decide, and if he is not on the ballot, then mike pence, step up. the answer is, no. i am not do anything. i fully support president trump. i support his agenda, and i am his biggest advocate and cheerleader. he saw a very strong statement from his office and twitter handle. strongly denied "the new york times" article. i would encourage him to continue to strongly denied, support the president's agenda. it is a winning agenda. and mike pence is vice president, that is why. a cheerleader for it.
my hope is when they come back in september, the white house the leadership should sit down and say, we have to get something done by the end of the year. tax reform. i think health care reform is at some level able. i think mike pence and donald trump working with paul ryan, mitch mcconnell, here is that a short list of things we need to get done. be successful. i think they can get it done. if you may like the agenda, but the stock market sure does. >> i think a lot of the stock market is undeniable. 22,000 is a record just recentl recently. unless you have a defined pension, for example, or enough money to invest in a 401(k), mainstreet america with the people that i work for in ohio senate are not necessarily feeling the strength of wall street. i think at some point there is a
distance. i think democrats and republicans need to work together. i think it will be a challenge for republicans to advance their agenda, whether or not i agree with it or not. there's already been proven that you have two factions of the republican party. moderates and freedom caucus, who are having a difficult time coming together and building a consensus. it may be necessary, and frankly oftentimes legislation and laws are much better for the american people when both parties come together and actually are participating in the process. >> jon: we will have to leave it there. thank you so much for being with us. investigators are looking into potential ties between russia and the trump campaign. unable to investigate any crime they come across a been to a point? from that from a man that appointed the special counsel heading up the investigation. president trump calls it a witch hunt. now, did deputy attorney general about the limits and the grand

>> jon: the man who appointed the special counsel looking into the russian meddling in clues and says robert mueller can investigate anything that comes into scope. but they never said what mueller may look into. deputy attorney general spoke with chris wallace on "fox news sunday" ." >> regulation of the department of justice, do not engage in fishing expedition. >> any matters that arose or may arise directly with the investigation within the course of his investigation of the issues that he is looking at.
if he finds evidence of a crime, can he look at that? >> chris, if he is evidence of a crime within the scope of what mueller and i have agreed, then he can. if it's something outside that scope, then he has to come to the acting attorney general, at this time, me, for permission to expand. >> jon: that interview after days "the new york times" said he took his investigation to a grand jury. they deputy attorney general do not confirm or deny it. president trump last week called of illusion between his campaign in russia a total fabrication. let's begin ellie allie. there's been no evidence between collusion in the trunk campaign. >> we are in the same place when we started. a lot of smoke, circumstantial evidence. we are finally seeing what everyone has been waiting for.
digging out the ground and accelerating and moving quicker. there is been no indication from the congressional nor robert mueller with the news last week that any of these investigations are slowing down. this is true. there's no no concrete evidence yet, we do not know if will be anything concrete or anything like that. the investigation is certainly slowing down. >> jon: rod rosenstein said a grand jury is a so-so think. here's what he told chris wallace. >> many of our investigations, chris, is the use of the grand jury. an appropriate way to gather documents, witnesses, to make sure you get the full testimony. it is a tool that we use in the course of our investigation. >> jon: just a tool. i served on a special grand jury for three years, and every single person was brought to us for an indictment, we indicted. it is pretty easy for federal prosecutors to get a an
indictment. it is adjusted to a? >> it is important that they are tools and not a silver bullet. as i mentioned, it is not slowing down. mueller would not be pursuing this if the investigation if you find a small, circumstantial stuff is important two to go and this with a measure perspective. it is certainly not -- an indicator moving forward. >> jon: he is looking at other issues besides russian meddling and collusion. one of them is a number of leaks coming out of this administration. here's what he told chris. >> while we look at in every leak we get, the facts and circumstances. what was the potential harm caused by the leak, circumstances. that is more important than who is the leaker. we identify somebody, no matter the position.
if they violated the law, and that warrants prosecution, we'll prosecute. >> included white house officials and members of congress can make >> anyone who violates the law. bill and as important if he is seriously saying that members of congress leaked information? >> this is where the rubber will hit the road for the trump administration. his what the damages from the lease. are we talking about people lives in danger or embarrassment to the white house? a lot of the leaks of the trump administration has been unhappy have fallen in the category of more and embarrassment than a true national security issue. that will be moving forward whether the bar that the doj for prosecuting. they'll have to go from the actual legal and pump bar.
>> jon: about the fact that hillary clinton was not being investigated by his attorney general, jeff sessions. and then deputy attorney general, rod rosenstein, seemed to confirm that. the president has not asked for a hillary clinton investigation. >> yes, and he also said that it would be inappropriate for him to ask for any specific probes and people. it is not how the doj works. it doesn't appear that that is moving forward. >> jon: ali watkin at "political" " north korea promising deadly payback after they were heated with new punishments had. we will look at an energy future scientists were always watching for signs of a nuclear blast from that country. and show you how they keep their constant tabs on the kingdom. near disaster in texas. when rushing floodwaters wash out a road. the balancing act that saved a
