12:00 pm
to brad thor, author of "use of force." thanks for joining us. we'll have more tomorrow. i'm dana perino. now shepard smith. >> shepard: it's noon on the west coast. 3:00 at the white house. president trump held a joint news conference today. it came after strong criticism from the republican senator john mccain calling out those that focus on finding scape goats, not solutions. saying abandoning america's principles of leadership on the international front is unpatriotic. today the president threatening to fight back. while he insists that obamacare is dead, it's not. and there's breaking news this afternoon of a bipartisan deal to give obamacare new life. north korea now warning nuclear war may break out at any moment. just talk or a preview? plus -- after months of fighting, u.s.-backed troops say
12:01 pm
they have taken control of raqqa. we're seeing celebrations in the streets i according to the u.s. military, they may want to put the party on pause for just a moment. in northern california, the story of the hero dog injured in a wild fire while keeping his herd of goats safe from the flames. and milestone in the markets. will the dow close above 23,000 for the first time ever? who knows. the bulls are running in brooklyn. let's get to it. and first from the fox news deck, president trump defending his brand of america first politics. the president says a number of countries were a little bit nervous when he became commander-in-chief. the president make an announcement when talking to the
12:02 pm
leader of greece. the greek leader said that candidate trump represented evil ideas. >> a number of countries were nervous at the beginning. i have very good relationships with the leaders of every country i've dealt with. but the reason they were concerned is because i will not allow our country, the united states of america, to be taken advantage of by so many other countries all over the world. >> shepard: earlier the president warned he could fight back after john mccain delivered this. blasting nationalism is unpatriotic. >> and lead for three quarters of a century, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain the haas best hope of earth for the sake of some half-baked nationalism cooked up by people that would rather find
12:03 pm
scape goats than solve problems. >> senator mccain was accepting an award for a lifetime of sacrifice and service to the u.s. here's president responded. >> people have to be careful. at some point i fight back. i'm being very nice. very, "nice. at some point i'll fight back and it won't be pretty. >> today senator mccain said he told fox news he wants to work with the president, not against him. the president held a news conference with mitch mcconnell. president trump has blamed mcconnell for failing to deliver on healthcare. senator mcconnell said the president has excessive expectations about how congress works. the president and mcconnell said they're friends with the same agenda. still that news conference said why his former chief of staff is campaigning against established
12:04 pm
republicans, including senator mcconnell. senator mcconnell said he might talk bannon out of challenging some gop leaders. leader mcconnell said he is to support all of incumbent senators. john roberts, it was your question that teed that off today, john. >> it was. unfortunately the internet can be a sticky thing for some people. one of the questions i was interested in is back in march of 2016, alexis ciprus said of president trump, it looked like he might be heading for the republican nomination, of course with this nomination marks the islands it represents, the appeal it reaches and the threat to become even president, i hope we will not face this evil. so i put the question to the greek prime minister after meeting president trump. does he still think he's facing evil or has he changed his mind. listen here. >> you said the potential for a donald trump presidency "i hope
12:05 pm
we will not face this evil." i'm wondering if after spending time with the president you have changed your mind or if you're of the same mind. >> the u.s. is a very strong power. their ability to interview for good is very important. i want to confirm that the meeting that we had was very productive. not a moment did i feel that i was threatened at any time. >> so it appears the greek prime minister has changed his mind. when i initially asked the question, the president weighed in and said i wish i had known that before our meeting. i think the president did know about what tsipris said before the meeting. the president expounded as to why tsipris and other world leaders are unsure about what a donald trump presidency would bring. listen here. >> look at our jobs moving out
12:06 pm
to certain countries. the companies are living and firing the people and the product is made elsewhere and then sold back into the united states. i'm not going to be allowing that. i can understand how certain countries and the leaders of certain countries may feel. but we're not going to allow the united states to be taken advantage of by other countries anymore. there's nothing we can do about that. >> the bottom line, looks like the u.s.-greek relationship is healthy at this point. one of the big issues is bolsters greece in terms of its position in nato. as tensions rise between the united states and turkey, which is on the eastern boarder of greece, there's a need to make sure we have a strong and stable ally in that region, shep. >> shepard: did you think the prime minister answered your question? >> i think he answered it in the best way he could given the fact that he said it about was four feet away from him. >> shepard: that is a problem. his house is behind him. there's that. and senators have announced
12:07 pm
there's a deal to continue payments to health insurance that president trump has blocked. patty murray and lamar alexander worked out the agreement. the president said he was involved in the negotiations. >> we have been involved. this is a short-term deal because we think block grants going to the states will be the answer. that's a very good solution. we think it's not only going to save money but give people better health care. and they're working together and i know very much what they're doing. >> shepard: for now a fix for obamacare. senators murray and alexander began talks months ago when the president was threatening to stop the subsidies. back to john roberts. >> the omb director was behind me. i asked him what the president thought of the deal. he said he likes it but he's learning the details of it. so he doesn't know if he likes the deal or if he likes the fact that they reached a bipartisan
12:08 pm
agreement. because one of the president's goals, shep, in initiating the executive order that he has that made some changes in obamacare including removing the obamacare subsidies, which the president believes were illegal for the executive branch to do, to try to bring republicans and democrats together to forge some sort of bipartisan agreement over a way forward on obamacare. i put the question to the president this afternoon that he's plans to support the graham cassidy bill in the senate went nowhere. the house voted on it. went nowhere in the senate twice. looks like it's going nowhere on the senate until the new year. he issued the executive order getting rid of the subsidies. what is his healthcare plan? listen to the exchange here. >> at this point, what is your healthcare plan, sir? >> well, if you look at insurance companies and you'll take a good strong look at the numbers, you'll see since the
12:09 pm
formation of obamacare, they're up 400%, 450%, 250%. 300%. they've made a fortune. obamacare is a disaster. it's virtually dead as far as i'm concerned. i predicted that a long time ago. it's a concept that doesn't work. >> so the president says that obamacare is virtually dead but for the next little while, it will live to see the light of day. this new deal between senator alexander and senator murray would restore the csrs to insurance companies for two years around allow states flexibility in how the money is used. it would allow flexibility by the states to offer catastrophic plans to people over the age of 30. senator tim kaine of virginia spoke before he knew this deal had been cut, said he's looking forward to some sort of bipartisan agreement on the way
12:10 pm
forward for health care reform. listen here. >> we're going to come up with bipartisan solutions to make healthcare better rather than destroy it. there's a good discussion going on about what we can do to stabilize the individual market in the short term. the most urgent thing we can do is stabilize the individual market. i think lamar alexander and patty murray are close. i look forward to their efforts going ahead. >> the details of the plan will be released around 5:00. we know a couple of the pieces. back to the bigger issue. what is the president's plan to repeal and replace obamacare. i asked him a follow up question. he said it's basically the graham cassidy bill that failed twice in the senator and won't get the support of senator rand paul unless there's changes. so i don't know where it's going. >> shepard: president trump is expected to make his case for a tax plan tonight.
12:11 pm
the president is pitching his ideas to the american people and also trying to convince members of congress. cutting taxes, the president has said, is a top priority of the white house right now, which is looking for its first legislative victory since the president took office. peter doocy with more. an important week for the tax plan no doubt. >> the tax plan may be in trouble this week if republicans cannot scrape together enough of their own votes to pass a budget. no budget means no tax reform and the republicans have even less of a margin for error than they normally do because republican senator thad cochran is at home recovering from an illness. rand paul threatening to withhold his support. he tweeted this. senators mccain and graham are torpedoing the budget by insisting on budgeting the budget cap for more spending. senator graham told me, that's not true. >> i think senator paul is
12:12 pm
trying to find a way to vote no and he always does. the president wants to spend more on defense. i want to spend more on defense. every military leader says we need to build up the defense department in light of the threats we face. >> just a few minutes ago, chuck schumer told reporters over in the senate that if there ever is actually tax legislation, democrats will be willing to work with republicans as long as they just showed with the healthcare deal. >> we will work with them just as we are on healthcare. we hope that's a message that our republican colleagues understand and see. we're not here to obstruct. >> but nobody has seen a piece of tax legislation, so that means that it's really hard to tell how anybody is going to vote, shep. >> shepard: peter doocy on capitol hill. thanks. more from the president's news conference and what his short term healthcare deal could mean for millions of americans.
12:13 pm
plus, keeping an eye on the markets. the last hour of trading, the dow earlier hit 23,000. something we have never seen before. we'll be watching that throughout the hour to see if it makes history again. in addition to that, remember the travel ban? no. that just got blocked. that's breaking news. and the bulls are running on wall street and in brooklyn. today on the hour-long noon news of one of our local stations in new york, news chopper 7 lived over this bull as it ran and brooklyn. they called it a cow for a long time. city folk. we'll be right back. patrick woke up with a sore back. but he's got work to do. so he took aleve this morning. if he'd taken tylenol, he'd be stopping for more pills right now.

12:15 pm
12:16 pm
>> shepard: there's breaking news now. a federal judge in hawaii has just temporary blocked the latest version of president trump's travel ban. the new restrictions were to affect citizens of chad, iran, libya, north korea, somalia and some venezuelan government officials. hawaii argues that the updated ban simply continues president trump's "promise to exclude muslims" from the united states. other courts are also hearing challenges to the policy. more now on the president's news
12:17 pm
conference with greece. let's go to jill kevin from the a.p. >> thanks for having me. >> shepard: he did say something about being evil back in the day. that was interesting. >> yeah, the prime minister of greece made some tough comments when the president was running and suggesting that electing president trump's ideology would be a face of evil on the world. >> shepard: he didn't take it back either. not one little -- not that far. >> he did not but he did say -- it's words were interesting that he said at no point in his interaction did he feel threatened. i'm not sure if it's one of those turns of phrase -- >> shepard: the translation thing. >> exactly. >> shepard: or if he was re-assuring us. i never felt like anything bad was going to happen to me for that. >> the two of them did seem to have a friendly rapport.
12:18 pm
so it seemed like the two of them, the message is that the two countries are unified, really positive message, optimism about greece leaving the eight years of economic recession, entering the new more positive phase and they're talking about how they can work together, potential sales of airplanes and things like that. no and then there's john mccain. i wonder if john mccain feels is same way. >> we talked about the president's healthcare comment. what is notable is what didn't get brought up in the press conference. the president was not asked about his comments to john mccain saying that well, he's being nice for now. just watch out. we didn't get any questions about the president's comments ant previous presidents not calling or writing letters to the families of soldiers that died. >> shepard: completely false. >> that didn't come up at all. we weren't able to ask about whether or not his chief of staff, john kelly, had spoken to
12:19 pm
the president about the former president not calling him, where the idea came from. there's foreign policy issues that were not addressed. >> shepard: it's interesting. yesterday free-flowing ones, there were a lot of words, lots of words. but you never really learned much. you know what i mean? >> this is my second day now. >> shepard: welcome. >> yesterday's very different. it was like a mosh pit of reporters that just ran to get spots around him. by my count, it was something like 30 odd questions he was asked. today was more stayed, chairs set up, microphones passed along. we were just screaming. but the president sometimes answered a lot of questions or takes a lot of questions and doesn't necessarily provide complete answers, that answer the full extent of what we're looking to know.
12:20 pm
you know, on the plus side he does take questions frequently. reporters can't complain over the last 48 hours that we're not asking him. >> shepard: not a complaint one can make. he's there answering questions. jill, great to see you. >> thank you. >> shepard: a great look, all the screaming. don't abandoned it. the justice department reports they filed the first criminal charges against chinese drug traffics accused of selling fentanyl and other opioids to the american people online. rod rosenstein announced the indictment this morning. he said he told prosecutors to go after more of these types of cases. >> when they have an overdose death in their community, don't stop with the local distributor. find out where they're coming from and getting in the community. if we can shut down these labs in china, we can save thousands of lives. >> rosenstein says the cdc estimates more than 20,000

>> shepard: u.s.-backed forces in syria have taken back the city of raqqa from the islamic state terrorists, a big win against the militants that for years called that city their capitol. celebrating in the streets where they previously lived in fear, we're told. among extremists that terrorized the public with crucifixions and be headings for acts like smoking a cigarette. a u.s. military spokesman said about 100 militants are still in raqqa and booby traps are a big threat right now. some images to show you. a soldier waving the kurdish party flag from a destroyed building in raqqa. the u.s. democratic backed forces had a four-month fight that left most of the city in ruins. here two women hug each other after they escaped from the fighting.

12:27 pm
350 isis fighters have surrendered in the past week. the pending fall of the isis de facto capitol doesn't mean the end of isis yet. the fighting will continue in eastern syria. isis only controls 3% of iraq in the border along syria. questions remain about the hundreds of u.s. troops in syria. senior u.s. and russian military officials we learned met face to face last week for the second time in a month as both countries seek to stay out of each other's way there. >> shepard: they're careful to point out there's still a threat from the islamic state. >> the president is worried where done isis go next. there's no question when a terrorist group loses its capitol however that it's a big win. today marks exactly three years since the u.s.-led coalition
12:28 pm
formed to fight isis. you might recall when isis took over raqqa, these enduring images of isis parading in the streets and this armored vehicle doing doughnuts in the traffic circle. today u.s. backed fighters recreated that scene by doing doughnuts of their own to celebrate. officials have warned that while isis being crushed in iraq and syria, the group will likely go underground to yemen where the pentagon says for the first time u.s. aircraft bombed two isis training camps yesterday killing dozens of fighters. >> shepard: thanks, jennifer. an f-18 fighter jet crashed outside madrid. killed the pilot. an official with spain's defense ministry said the plane didn't have enough power to take off. still no word on what went wrong. it's the second military plane to go down in spain in less than a week. north korea issuing a new warning that nuclear war could happen at any time. it's also responding to
