tv Happening Now FOX News April 6, 2018 8:00am-9:00am PDT
not a trade war. there's uncertainty. >> they're taking like it could be a trade war. we saw the markets overnight, the futures crash with donald trump's proclamation of $100 billion in tariffs. >> thanks. "happening now" starts right now. >> jon: and this is a fox news alert. president trump threatening more tariffs on chinese imports. the move escalating a high stakes war of words with the two biggest economies. i'm rick leventhal. >> and i arthel neville. there's new concerns about an all-out trade war. president trump's top trade advisers saying the administration is on sound footing. >> have a great relationship with the president of china. this is business. this is the kind of business where we have to stand firm against china's unfair trade
practices. >> john roberts joins us live now with the latest. hi, jon. >> arthel, good morning to you. at the moment, this is all saber rattling to see who will blink first. is it's going to be xi jinping or president trump? the president reacting to the threat of china putting tariffs on some $50 billion worth of u.s. goods saying last night, well, how about we hit china with tariffs on another $100 billion in goods? the president said he has to be tough with china to protect american companies and jobs. listen here. >> we don't have a trade war. we've lost the trade war. for many years, whether it's clinton or the bushes or obama, all of our presidents before have for some reason, they just -- it just got worse and worse. now it's $500 billion in deficits. and a theft of $300 billion in
intellectual property. the easiest thing for me to do is close any eyes and forget it. >> clearly that's not something the president is about to do. the markets swooning again today over fears of a trade war between the u.s. and china that could have a detrimental effect on the economy and businesses. the market down 350 points right now. the chief economic adviser, larry kudlow in the driveway three days in a row now urging people to stay calm. listen here. >> there's ongoing talks. they'll be back and forth. u.s. and beijing and so forth. so i'll just leave it there. there's constant communication. this is not about trade wars, this is ongoing discussion. we'll see. frankly, the u.s. government was really quite disappointed at china's response to our initial islands and complaints. >> there may be a lot of
uncertainty in the stock markets until a new relationship with china on trade is worked out. listen here. >> i'm not saying there won't be pain. but the markets have gone up 40%. we might lose a little bit of it. we'll have a much stronger country when we're finished. that's what i'm about. we have to do things that other people wouldn't do. so we may take a hit and you know what? ultimately we'll be stronger for it. >> so far the market doesn't seem to be down that much for the year. it goes up one day and down the next depending on the flow of news. the president insisting he has a relationship with xi jinping and the president of china and we'll work it out. a lot of people have their fingers crossed. >> thanks, john roberts. >> you may have seen president trump ditching his script in west virginia where he was scheduled to talk about the recently passed tax law.
>> i think i'll start, this was going to be my remarks. it would have taken about two minutes. that would have been a little boring. a little boring. i'm reading off the first paragraph. saying this is boring. we have to tell it like it is. we have to get republicans in office. >> let's bring in john mccormack from the weekly standard. thanks for being with us. >> good to be here. >> when is the last time we saw a president do that? >> this president has done it quite frequently. he likes to talk about what is on his mind and what is on his mind is not what is on the mind of congressional republicans. they want to focus on tax cuts, tax cuts. >> he wants to take about illegal immigration and voter fraud. >> you can argue this is how he got elected. being raw and unfiltered. >> it was part of his appeal. you can argue other candidates
would have had different paths to the presidency. this is what he cares about most. whether there's a grand strategy behind it, i don't know. might make sense in a state like virginia to talk about illegal immigration than tax cuts. the tax cuts bill is gaining popularity. the congress is saying the script is a little boring. >> do you see a down side to him going off script like that? >> oh, sure. you saw the comments saying there were millions and millions of illegal votes. it's false. obviously there's the issue of crime that is a real issue. the real issue is that there are people in this country legally and they shouldn't be in the first place. they're committing crimes. that's a huge failure of the government, to keep them out of here in the first place. the issue with him, he's tended to exaggerated the overall level and suggesting, implying that there's a greater percentage of heinous crimes being committed by immigrants, illegal or
otherwise, and it's not clear. so that's a problem. >> he also talked about women in the caravan of migrants traveling north being raped and critics say there's no evidence of that. >> i have not determined if that's true or false. i don't know where he got that fact. >> he was there to promote the tax bill and to talk about senator joe manchin that voted against it. he criticized him repeatedly. i want your reaction to that. >> the democrats have a problem. you look at your senator. he voted against, joe, he voted against. it was bad. i thought he would be helpful. he talks. he voted against the tax cuts and he also voted against medical help and health care. that's bad. we can't have it.
>> john, can this make a difference in november? >> i think so. in west virginia, this is a strongly pro trump state. he's going to try to say that joe manchin, while he's there to support me, he wants to compromise, at the end of the day he's helping obstruct what is left on his agenda. the popular part, like build the wall would be a popular agenda item. joe manchin is trying to stake out a middle ground on immigration. ultimately voters will have to decide whether they want to send more republicans or democrats in the fall. >> john mccormack, thanks for your time. have a great weekend. >> thank you. >> just in, the trump administration levelling tough new sanctions against russia targeting oligarchs and 17 government officials close to vladimir putin. the u.s. says rather than punishing russia for one specific action, the new
sanctions are in response to what officials are calling the russian government ongoing and brazen pattern of bad behavior. >> what we all want in the end is a good relationship with russia. we have to do what is right for america. what is right in this case is as congress did pass this law that the president signed is taking these additional actions against those individuals that have tremendous political influence in russia. >> the fresh sanctions are the latest step following the poisoning of a former russian spy and his daughter in england as well as the interference in the 2016 u.s. election. >> a fox news alert. the jobs report is out for the month of march showing the u.s. economy added 103,000 jobs after several months of bigger gains. the unemployment rate remaining steady at 4.1% for the sixth straight month. that's a 17-year low.
let's see how the stock market is reacting. down 305 points. it's not clear because of the jobs numbers or the tariffs in china. >> president trump touting his plan to send national guard troops to the southern border to bolster security. there's questions about the exact details. we're getting some insight from house judiciary committee, mike johnson, coming up next. the co-owner of a kansas water park charged in the tragic death of a 10-year-old boy pleading not guilty to second degree murder. what his attorneys are saying about the case.
at cancer treatment centers of america. start with teams of cancer treatment experts under one roof. start where specialists use advanced genomic testing to guide precision cancer treatment... ...that may lead to targeted therapies and more treatment options. start where there's a commitment to analyzing the latest research and conducting clinical trials-to help each patient get the personalized cancer care they deserve. start at one of the cancer treatment centers of america hospitals near you. the evolution of cancer care is here. learn more at cancercenter.com/experts appointments available now. ai had a lot on my mind. could this happen again? was my warfarin treatment right for me? my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots... eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment.
eliquis had both and that turned 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. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. >> the co-owner of a kansas city water park pleads not guilty to murder and other charges in the death of a 10-year-old boy. jeff henry appearing in court where a judge ordered him to surrender his passport.
all of this stemming from a tragedy two years ago. the boy went airborne and hit a loop on a massive water slide. henry's attorney says he is intent on finding out what caused the malfunction. a trial date is set for september 10. >> we're looking from 2,000 to 4,000. we'll probably keep them, a large portion of them, until such time as we get the wall. >> arthel: president trump's plan for deploying national guard is in motion. there's few details about carrying out the orders and whether the troops will be armed. now with more on the plan, mike johnson from louisiana. he's a member of the house judiciary committee and the subcommittee on immigration and border security. good to have you here,
congressman. >> thanks, arthel. >> arthel: have you spoken with the president about his strategy and logistics for the troops at the border and also congressman as part of the subcommittee on immigration and border security, how would you advise the president to proceed? >> great questions. we've been urging the president since he took the oath of office to be serious about border security and he has been. it's been a major priority of his. he's said it all along, even on the campaign trail and following through with that. we applaud it. the devil will be in the details. we think this is the right step. congress has failed to act because -- go ahead. >> arthel: i was going to ask you, can you give us insight on the details? >> he's discussing with governors and the border states and elsewhere around the country right now, the department of defense is working with the u.s. customs and border protection to work out the details. they've set up a new cell
through the pentagon that will work with logistics on deciding exactly how many troops and what exactly their operations will be. we know they will help with surveillance and help with operational support, fleet mechanics and maybe some air surveillance, which would be a big help as well. we know that customs and border protection is welcoming this assistance. we need it because arthel, you know, we all know, we have a porous border and it's a serious concern. >> arthel: i want to take a look at numbers, congressman. in 2004, border patrol agents arrested approximately 1.1 million illegal aliens at the border and 2014 ten years later, they arrested close to 480,000. last year, border agents arrested almost 304,000 people trying to cross illegally. so you can see the numbers are growing down. so without the hyperbole, not that you would be hyperbolic,
what is the -- we don't want to alarm u.s. citizens. so the drug dealers and killers are illegally coming in at alarming rates. what is the real problem, congressman, at the southern border with mexico? how threatening is it and how do we fix the problem? >> well, we do know that it's a porous border. that's a serious problem. while the numbers went down a little bit after. trump took office and the new congress took our seats. that's because there was a new sheriff in town. the message is we would be tougher on border security. now we've seen an uptick in the month of march. we've seen an increase in the numbers. now we've seen the caravan, the infamous caravan moving towards the border -- >> arthel: but we don't want to mix messages, congressman. that's the whole thing. this is serious. you're right. the border is porous and some improvement. i don't think anyone wants illegal -- people crossing
illegally, especially not the bad actors. so i want to be clear on the facts here in the caravan. they weren't like coming in droves to our country. it was a protest to show the journey from central america and mexico and those that could get into america. that's not exactly what happened here. go ahead. >> right. the protest is a symbol of the problem that people around the world from central america and along the southern border, the greatest and most recent example, they're not certain that we'll be serious about that border. that's why the president talks about the wall. that's why we have to devote the resources to this very important job. the most important job of the commander and chief and the president is to secure the nation. the reason that it's alarming to many is because we know that ms-13 gang members, the hard narcotics and others are coming through the porous border. we have to do this. it's a matter of rule of law.
>> arthel: will the wall stop the bad actors and will we see a wall built down there? >> we'll see parts of it. $1.6 billion has been allocated by congress. they're moving the money to shore up the existing wall and the rest. that's why the national guard is being dispatched by the president. they need the operational support and the backup to get the critical mission done. until the wall and the large portions of the wall and the border is secured, we have to do this important job. it necessary for everybody in this country for safety and again, just as a basic matter of national security. >> arthel: the president says the national guard troops will stay down there until the wall is built. is this a good idea? >> well, i suppose so. until the border is secure. we're all defining exact will what that means, how the mission will be defined and what the determination date will be. everybody is cooperative. the border security, the national guard, the pentagon, everybody is working together.
>> arthel: except for the governor of california. >> we'll deal with him later. yeah. we'll see how that goes. >> arthel: congressman mike johnson, you should head down to the strawberry festival. >> come join me. >> arthel: thank you so much, sir. >> rick: president trump speaking out about the opioid crisis that continues to devastate the nation. >> i have a friend that goes to the hospital. he had a bad arm. he's like a drug addict. you get hooked fast. >> the nation's top doctor urging americans to be ready by carrying an anti dote drug that can save lives. a texas chemical plant lighting up the night sky. what witnesses were saying from pretty far away. >> i felt the heat. we're about a half mile away. 1/4 away. we felt the heat over here. it lit up the whole sky.
>> arthel: a large fire around several explosions ungulfing a check call recycling plant in rural texas. many awoke from the blast and saying they could feel the heat. firefighters doing all they could before deciding to let the fire burn out. thankfully, there are no nearby homes threatened by the blaze. nobody is believed to have been inside when the plant caught fire. the fire marshal saying crews are not worried about any chemical hazard. the cause of the fire is under investigation. >> we are one of the top states in terms of the opioid problem. we just had $6 billion approved
to fight opioids, to take care of people, to wean them off of the problem. >> president trump talking about the opioid crisis yesterday in west virginia. highlights the efforts made in washington to try to help combat the ongoing problem that is plaguing the nation. this as the surgeon general is now urging more americans to carry the drug which can help save lives if someone overdosing on opioids. joining me now, addiction specialist from yale, dr. sally satel and dr. marc siegel from nyu and a fox news medical correspondent. welcome. >> how, rick. >> rick: dr. sally, your reaction to this rare advisory. >> i think it's a good idea. many people are overdosing. 42,000 last year. many can be revived and go on to
therapy and recover and be productive and functional and happy people. they need to have that opportunity. >> dr. seagle, we've heard encouragement of citizens. is this the same principle? most people are not doctors and you're asking them to administer a drug here. >> rick a great point here. the first thing is to get people to understand what an emergency looks like. if you come on someone on the ground and they're not breathing or mental status has changed or in this case they have pinpoint pupils, how do you recognize a opioid overdose? do you know cpr? we need to teach more people. you have two million people out there that have opioid addiction problems. our hospital is discharging people now who have opioid overdoses with these devices. you're looking at something where if i push on the bottom, i spray the drug out the top. you put it in their nose. you don't need training for this. you don't have to be a first
responder or physician to use this. >> rick: we've heard and seen there could be an increase in the risk of overdoses if people know they can use the drugs and be saved if things go bad. so dr. satel, your thoughts on that. >> there's a question of moral hazard. it's outweighed by the imperative to save lives. there's no question about it. the issue is, we save their lives, they come to the emergency room and from there what happens? that's a risky period. often a gap where people will use again or sometimes they're revived on the street and go out and use because they're withdraw, a very uncomfortable state. so the idea is to get them to standstill at that moment and try to get them to come to treatment, sometimes recovery coaches, people that have been through this are summoned to the emergency room to convince people to stick with it and say look, i did it, i was here and you can get better. >> one quick point on that. first of all, we're seeing
overdoses that are much for fentanyl. it's more powerful than heroin. that's why their overdose. a drug called seboxone. it decreases the addiction feeling. it's a huge thing that is being underused. >> rick: one of many ways of battling this. but what we've seen, the grip of the opioids are so strong. even after being near death and being resuscitated, many of the addicts keep using. the treatment is so important here. >> as dr. seagle said, being on methadone, seboxone, they
suppress cravings and they have to go on and rebuild their lives. there's more psychological and social work people can do. it can take up to a couple years, it's a long process. >> she's an expert in this. people have to have something to live for. >> rick: real quick. final point. 250,000 deaths and now the surgeon general saying people should carry narcan. can this makes a difference? have we seen a crest in this crisis? >> i think it will make a difference if it's joined with the idea of physicians not overprescribing this stuff. we were taught to treat the pain with narcotics. pain can be treated with a lot of things. if we cut down on prescriptions, it will work. >> rick: thank you. talk to you soon. >> thanks, rick. >> arthel: the dow taking a dip and china responding to a threat by the president to add even
>> arthel: that is larry kudlow trying to tamp down talks of a trade war as rhetoric between the u.s. and china ramps up. beijing overnight vowing to fight back at any cost if president trump proceeds with the plan to raise tariffs on an additional $100 billion worth of imports from beijing. let's bring in the panel. isaac wright is here with us. and david avelo is the chairman of gopac. so david, china may not want a trade war but they're not backing down and could inflict damage on the u.s. president xi is saving face, if you will. so is it a smart strategy to use this public battling a a negotiating tool? >> china wants the status quo. right now we have a $500 billion
deficit with china. they want things to stay as they are. but after now 17 months of the trump administration, not quite 17 months, after a year of the trump administration, here's where is u.s. economy is. we have the lowest unemployment that we've had in almost decades. we have wages that are up 3%, which is a record over the last nine years. americas are feeling good about the economy. so what we ultimately will hear from the democrats is throwing mud at an economy doing well. >> arthel: the economy is doing well. that's a great thing, david. this is the president's negotiating style and worked in other cases. he's putting china on blast, basically. is this a good move? >> most americans would say the economy is doing well, what the president is doing and he should continue to do. if you're against what he's doing, ultimately what you're saying is we want china to continue to have a $500 billion
advantage over american workers. >> arthel: isaac, i'm going to get you in a moment. i want to show a full-screen comment from nebraska ben sasse. republican senators saying hopefully the president is blowing off steam again. if he's half serious, this is nuts. china is guilty of many things but the president has no actual plan to win right now. he's threatening to light american agriculture on fire. let's take on chinese bad behavior but with a plan that punishes them instead of us. he is the dumbest way to do this. isaac, are senator sasse's concerned valid? >> absolutely. that's the problem. we recognize that something needs to be addressed in the trade policy. donald trump is playing chicken with the world's two largest economies. he's playing a game of checkers with our tech sector, our ag sector when we should be playing
chess. >> arthel: so what should be the plan then? nothing else has worked. china cooks the bucks with their currency and it's a lop-sided trade exchange here. so what is the plan? what is the best way to do this? >> i think you just made a great suggestion. maybe one of the things the president should try to tie to this is unpegging the chinese luan from our currency so that it's not currency manipulation. that's not on the table. the president is not bringing up -- >> arthel: you can't tell china what to do with their currency. be real. nothing has worked in the past. >> you brought up, what are we going to do to address it? that could be part of the equation. where are the international allies on trade? right now the u.s. agriculture economy was projected last year that 33% of the annual gross farmer's receipts would come from overseas.
china is the largest market of that. u.s. farmers right now are there biggest victims. the tech sector, potentially the second largest victim. we have to have a strategic approach. this can't be grandstanding and posturing and a twitter war with our president sparking a trade war with the two largest economies in the globe. >> arthel: it's more than a twitter wall. david, you know well that there are some back-door negotiations being had right now and everybody saying that beijing is a bad actor. these tariffs won't go effect until the end of may. you think they will get resolved before then? >> let's hope. let's hope the members of congress will do things that will help. not only with the trade deficit, the things that make workers more competitive. let's continue to get rid of regulations that are hurting the economy, particularly in the
energy industry and it cannot be said enough that china and russian are both concerned about the moves being made to make u.s. economy more competitive in the energy sector. that's what this is about. let's look at regulations and frivolous lawsuits. >> arthel: we're short in time. i have to give isaac 10 seconds. quick response from you. >> this is about the american farmer that is a victim of donald trump's reckless trade policies. there's ways to go about this to do strategic initiatives. donald trump has foregone that and is threatening -- >> arthel: the president says he's out for the farmers and all the people of america. we'll see how this plays out. isaac and david, thanks to you. >> thank you. >> rick: president trump's decision to deploy national guard troops getting mixed reactions. the pentagon says they're putting plans in motion. what the department of defense is doing to help meet the president's border security
goals. plus, the mysterious hanging of a california woman back in the headlines after her boyfriend's brother is found civilly liable for her death. what the victim's family is calling for. >> no matter what happens, rebecca, i can't get her back. our family can't get her back. hopefully people will know she didn't commit suicide and she was murdered. and she doesn't deserve to be treated the way the sheriff's department treated her. do you need the most trusted battery
i've been making blades here at gillette for 20 years. i bet i'm the first blade maker you've ever met. there's a lot of innovation that goes into making our thinnest longest lasting blades on the market. precision machinery and high-quality materials from around the world. nobody else even comes close. it's about delivering a more comfortable shave every time. invented in boston, made and sold around the world. now starting at $7.99. gillette. the best a man can get.
>> arthel: president trump denying he knew about a $130,000 payment to his personal lawyer made to stormy daniels. mrs. daniels said she was paid shortly before the 2016 election to buy her silence against an alleged affair. the president making his first public remark about her claim saying he never knew about the payment. >> did you know about the $130,000 payment to stormy daniels? why did michael cohen make it? >> you have to ask michael cohen. he's my attorney. you'll have to ask michael. >> do you know where he got the money for the payment? >> no. >> arthel: daniels has sued the president to void the nondisclosure agreement arranged by his personal attorney. she claims it's invalid because
mr. trump never signed it. >> rick: you might remember the case of rebecca zahow. she was found hanging off a balcony with her hands and feet bound at her boyfriend's california mansion. her death coming days after her boyfriend's 6-year-old son fell down the stairs while under her care. the boy later died. his death was ruled accident tall. hers was ruled a suicide even though her hands and feet were tied. now a civil jury has found her boyfriend's brother liable for her death and now they hope police will take another look at the case. >> when people see the evidence in this case, they're going to say, how could this be? how could a sheriff say this was suicide? so do we trust then a sheriff who has had this evidence all this time and didn't do anything about it, in fact snuffed the whole investigation by saying it was a suicide, to we trust that
person even if he reopened it to prosecute it? >> let's bring in our legal panel, mercedes and jonna. so we heard the attorney there. how could the sheriff say it was a suicide? >> we're thinking the same thing. forensically, it seems impossible. people kill themselves by hanging all the i'm -- time but they don't have their hands and feet bound and thrown off a balcony. no way this could be suicide. but the sheriff at the time six years ago or more, and the coroner ruled it a suicide. the problem is now. even if they reopen the case, the forensic evidence doesn't get better with time. >> rick: but the family won the civil suit for $5 million? >> arthel: they do feel
vindicated. at long last, someone is responsible for her death. she didn't kill herself. she was not only bound, naked, but threw herself over the balcony? implausible. let's look at talk to some of these adults >> rick: we saw this in the o.j. trial. he was cleared in a criminal case and then convicted in a civil case. why is it easier to get a conviction in civil court? >> simple, because the burden of proof is left. in criminal court, it's beyond a reasonable doubt and civil court is a preponderance of evidence of it is how in the o.j. case, he was completely acquitted but had a $30 million judgment awarded against him in civil court. same thing here, same principle. >> in civil proceedings, they're forced to face the consequences, faced allegations and they have to speak in their own worlds ws under oath. >> rick: flies in from
tennessee, the brother of the boyfriend to stay in the house, offered support to his brother after his kid falls down the stairs. that brother was in the mansion with a woman the night she was found hanging. he was the only one that was there. so we heard from the brother's after the civil suit and we want to get his reaction hear your reaction. >> absolutely astounded that verdict could be rendered when there was not a single speck of evidence that in any way showed that adam had absolutely anything to do with the death of rebecca zahau. >> that's hard to believe. he was the only adult there. he was the one who found the body, he allegedly caught her off the rope, tried to give her cpr. >> rick: it had a motive potentially because he was angry about the angry not taking care of the 6-year-old and allowing him to fall down the
stairs. because that would be a motive, but the other thing that i think is problematic with this case is that because he claimed that he is the one who cut her down, his dna is going to be all over her anyway. so we don't know whether his dna got there because he was killing their and then made it look like. >> another lawyer said she may have been sexually assaulted. and to the point earlier, where is that dna at this point? the body is decomposed, was a rape kit ever taken, we just don't know. >> rick: because of that apparent lack of forensic evidence, that would make the possibility of criminal charges less likely. >> i think at this point, it would make it almost impossible. >> unless somebody could come forward and prove it was a cover-up because my theory is, that had to be the case. he must've been connected. the brother had to be connected otherwise how do you deem this suicide? >> before we started this, we were all scratching our heads then how could this have been deemed a suicide given all of
the circumstances? it sounds so crazy and implausible. >> rick: thank you so much. >> arthel: two brothers convicted of killing their parents and an infamous case decades ago now reunited. the latest on eric and lyle menendez still ahead. plus, new details on president trump's plan to secure our southern border. we will go live to the pentagon. d time with my grandson. now depend fit-flex has their fastest absorbing material inside, so it keeps me dry and protected. go to depend.com - get a coupon and try them for yourself.
>> arthel: happy friday, everybody. coming up on "outnumbered," the trump administration slapping new sanctions on russia. at this time, hitting the vladimir inner circle. why this will quiet critics that he has a bromance with him and whether it will make russia think twice about messing with our election.
>> it's possible that things are getting worse for facebook. sheryl sandberg says if they want to fully opt out of having their data shared, they're going to have to pay for it. dana perino will interview cheryl today. >> really looking forward to that. plus our hashtag one lucky guy. "outnumbered" friday edition. >> rick: the beverly hills brother convicted of killing their parents have been reunited in a southern california prison. this week, eric menendez moved into the same housing unit as his brother while. the brothers are serving life sentences. they asked two decades ago to be sent to the same lockups that prison officials said the brothers might conspire to escape if they were together. now corrections officials say there's no reason to keep them apart and relatives say the brothers enjoyed a heartfelt reunion behind bars. >> arthel: following the president's a big plan to dispatch thousands of national guard troops to the
border. the pentagon is announcing its plan to establish a new security self that will add support to both homeland security and the border. jennifer griffin live from the pentagon with more in the story. >> as of late yesterday, the pentagon could not tell us how many national guard the white house hopes to send the mexico border but on air force one, president trump told reporters he envisioned two to 4,000 national troops at a press briefing here at the pentagon, officials could give no timeline for when the troops would be in place but they did and as they would be standing up a new planning sell here. it will demand 24/7. >> effective immediately, we are establishing a new border security support cell. this is not business as usual. it will last for the foreseeable future to make sure we search our capacity to meet the president's enhance border security goals.
