tv MSNBC Live With Ali Velshi MSNBC June 21, 2017 12:00pm-1:01pm PDT
pinpoint russia's role in the hacking of the 2016 general election and how we can be spared from having the same what happened conversations in future elections. secretary of state rex tillerson, secretary of defense james mattis holding a press conference alongside chinese leaders at the capitol. perhaps the most important topic of the discussion today, the big one, north korea. and we're following breaking news in flint, michigan. possible terror attack at the airport there. th this, after a police officer was stabbed in the neck and the suspect allegedly yelled ala akbar. ken, what do we know about anything to do with the suspect, motivation, what do we know? >> ali, details have been slow to come in on this one. i can tell you that the fbi has issued a statement saying it's too soon to know whether this is terrorism. they're investigating whether it is. we are reporting that the
suspect shouted allu akbar. the officer, jeff neville, is in stable condition, the father of two. that's good news. the suspect is being questioned right now, ali. >> and they are expecting a press conference at some point. there was some release from the police to say they don't believe this is connected to other incidents. in other words, they're not on the lookout for other things happening in flint? >> that's right. the airport was evacuated. the fbi is saying a statement they believe this was an isolated incident. >> following this for us very closely. when the police update us on what they know, we'll get back to you. for more on what happened in flint, clint walsh, doing double duty for us. we have you here for another conversation, clint. let's talk about this one. we know very little.
but there was an attack. fits in the profile of a lot of attacks that have been going on. individuals, sometimes they proclaim something or they don't. in this case, having yelled "allahu akbar" seems to give some people clues. >> when you see a wave of attacks, you get these inspired attacks that follow. it's a contagion. you see around the world half a dozen people at any given moment are considering this and see it as motivation. we had manchester, london, failed brussels attack. this is the ramadan period this year, similar to the ramadan wave that we saw last year. what we can decipher from this, it's much less sophisticated and much less organized. as at least as of now we haven't seen a claim of responsibility by the islamic state or al qaeda. and we're seeing this is a very low-tech attack. >> we've seen low-tech attacks,
whether it's knives, cars. things like that. obviously a car plowing into a crowd feels much more serious but in terms of accessible technology, it is very low. what does that tell you as somebody who has investigated these things and thought about things? does it tell you that this -- is it a good thing or bad thing that people are resorting to low-tech attacks? >> all terror attacks are bad. this lower tech spree is a good sign. think back a year ago, we saw coordinated plots in paris, brussels, bangladesh, saudi arabia that involved bombings, sophisticated bombing devices from trained foreign fighters, often, that fought in syria. what we're seeing now are what i called the bottled up phenomenon. people who have stayed at home, could not travel to syria, made no former foreign fighter, fought in syria or been inspired by them and taken up attacks on their own. both in terms of the targeting pattern and how they're doing it, they're probably not getting much direction from the central
headquarters. if anything, it might be a message back and forth saying i want to do an attack. should i do it and they say do it. >> it could be less than that. reading online postings and seeing things, i can have an impact. >> could be no connection at all. omar marteen scenario from orlando. he screamed "allahu akbar" during his attack at all and at one point claimed to be part of three different terror groups. >> someone wanting to do something, gain the notoriety or lash out. that makes them feel like they're part of a bigger cause. >> absolutely. workplace violence, emotional disturbed person and terrorist attack, the line is very thin. the first thing is are there any other potential attacks going on? >> that's what police want to know, is this a distraction, is
there something else? >> seems they've run that down already. next thing they'll look at, this totally lone wolf inspired, entirely on his own or have a support network around him? based on the low-tech capability and the way this attack was conducted you would have to assume it was almost self initiated. >> all right. clint, thanks very much for joining us for this. stand by. we'll need to come back to you. i want to go back to the nation's capital. james mattis is speaking now. let's listen in. >> the maggie chan from voice of america. maggie? >> thank you very much, mr. secretary. after your last visit to china in march, was released. after today, should we expect
good news to come soon on the release of three more americans detained in north korea? separately, on qatar, in a statement on qatar issued by the state department yesterday the administration seems to have acknowledged that it's being played by the saudis over the qatar crisis. isn't that embarrassing? thank you. >> with respect to the three additional american citizens that have been illegally detained, unlawfully detained by the regime in north korea, our efforts continue towards their release. i have nothing to report further on that at this time. with respect to the situation in the middle east, between qatar and the four countries who have issues with qatar, our role has been to encourage the parties to get their issues on the table, clearly articulated so that those issues can be addressed and some resolution process can
get under way to bring this to a conclusion. our desire is for unity within the gulf and unity within the gcc and that we redirect all of our efforts on the war against terror, the war to defeat isis and dash in the region. >> barbara platt from the bbc. >> thank you, secretary mattis, the president seemed to signal yesterday that he was extremely angry and frustrated with north korea and that china had failed in its attempt to help on that. despite these continued efforts at cooperation is the administration begin ining to think that china will not be able to reign north korea in? and is there any consideration of new, direct action? in particular has the military posture changed in any way? and, if i may, a question on the south china sea. control of the south china sea is a fundamental part of china
policy. freedom of navigation efforts notwithstanding, how far is the u.s. willing to go to prevent militarization? thank you. >> in regards to the president's view of north korea, i believe he represents the american people's view of north korea right now. we see a young man go over there healthy and with a minor act of mischief come home dead, basically, die shortly, immediately after he gets here. there's no way that we can look at a situation like this with any kind of understanding. this goes beyond any kind of understanding of law and order, of humanity, of responsibility towards any human being. so, what you're seeing, i think, is the american people's frustration with the regime that provokes and provokes and provokes and basically plays
outside the rules, plays fast and loose with the truth and that sort of thing. as far as china's role, the point of having the dialogue today, china's end state on the korean peninsula in terms of nuclear weapons is the same as ours and we continue to work toward that end state. on the south china sea, this is a dialogue where we identify areas where we can work together and understand those areas where we have, i would call them, disconnect. our understanding of the problem is very different from theirs. we had that discussion here today and we'll continue to work to close gaps in our understanding and to work some kind of manner in the future
that removes these irritants. i would say for right now that's the whole purpose for the dialogue that we held here today. and we will be holding more in the future. >> thank you, everyone. >> there you see the conclusion of a press conference by secretary of state rex tillerson, secretary of defense james mattis, taking a couple of questions on north korea and the situation on qatar and china. listening to that with us. rex tillerson said very little on the effort to get the three remaining americans out of north korea. he said the efforts continue for their release. james mattis saying on north korea that the american and chinese goals, as it relates to north korea's nuclear capabilities, the end state, the end game is the same. i'm not sure that's entirely true. is that consistent messaging throughout the pentagon? >> that's the way they would like to see it. whether or not they both assess
the urgency of the problem, of the challenge, that's where the divergence lies. that's why you have for both secretary of state, rex tillerson and secretary of defense, james mattis, the same language. both of them used the word "frank," in their discussions with the chinese. when you hear diplomats use the word "open and frank" that usually means they had something short of a full-on shouting match. frank and robust typically does mean a shouting match. it was very clear to me from both of those two men there that they put a great deal of pressure on the chinese to do more in terms of north korea. you heard secretary tillerson start off his comments saying that we reiterated china's responsibility, using strong language there, too, responsibility to get north korea to abide by international disagreement agreements and a frank discussion on the south china sea. from these conversations, the takeaway is that they could have been a little difficult and the other is that the conversation,
though, and the strategy of having china be the lead in solving the north korea challenge seems to be still in place. right? you heard secretary mattis use the word continue. that seems to contradict what trump tweeted. >> he said thanks, i'm glad they tried. at least we know china tried, which seemed to imply that that was finished. hans nichols at the pentagon, thank you. director and president of the woodrow wilson center, former congressman from california. jane, thank you very much for being with us. >> thank you. >> i want you to help us interpret what we just heard. somebody asked general mattis very specifically about donald trump's tweet to say at least we know china tried on north korea, that seemed to imply that china is done with this and america is going to do something on its own. yesterday he said while i greatly appreciate the efforts of president xi and china to
help with north korea, it has not worked out. at least i know china tried. jane, how do you interpret that? and how do you interpret what james mattis just said, which seems to imply they're still trying? >> doing foreign policy by tweet is problematic. less tweets and more james mattis would be really good. i thought his comments at the press conference were comforting. we're going to have a long-range relationship with china and we need to work with china on an ongoing basis to figure out this very tough problem of north korea, something people don't understand, but the scholars at the wilson center do, is that china does not have a great relationship with north korea. they share a border and china doesn't want nuclear weapons lobbying in to china from north korea, but there's a history of mistrust dating back 50 to 70 years. china doesn't have as much influence as some in this country may wish that it did. therefore, working with china,
both to improve our trade relationship, something that president trump wants to do and i certainly applaud that, and working with china on north korea is ongoing. that the tweet was in the past tense, i think possibly, was a typo or should have been, and mattis had the best frame. >> you and i talked about the iran deal some years ago. america had remarkable leverage in that deal. they were clamoring to be part of the global economic community and cutting them off from banking and lines of credit was very, very effective. in the case of north korea, china has the most leverage of anyone because i think 90% of north korea's trade is with china. >> that's correct. >> so, what is the best course of events for the united states to take? is it continued pressure on china to use that leverage through, you know, improving our trade relations with china, or is it military threat? >> well, i think military threat is not working. and certainly there's a danger that north korea will not behave
rationally. we've seen a lot of what i would call nonrational acts. killing an american citizen was unbelievably reckless and nonrational and should have repercussions. by the way, we should bar americans from traveling to north korea. that would be in their interest and our interest, frankly. but moving beyond that, it is in our mutual interest to ratchet back china's -- north korea's threats to the region and to us. a and, therefore, working with china is right. there are steps in between working with china and waging war against north korea. bilateral talks between our leaders would really be helpful. those are things we should be continuing to work on. while we protest the reckless, nonrational thing that north korea just did. >> jane, always good to talk to
you. thank you for taking the time to be on the show with me. jane harman from the woodrow wilson center. former homeland security jeh johnson, what he had to say about vladimir putin. a millie dresselhaus doll! happy birthday, sweetie! oh, millies. trick or treat! we're so glad to have you here. ♪ what if we treated great female scientists like they were stars? ♪ yasss queen! what if millie dresselhaus, the first woman to win the national medal of science in engineering, were as famous as any celebrity?

2016 election. >> in 2016, the russians at the direction of vladimir putin himself orchestrated cyber attacks on our nation for the purpose of influencing our election. that is a fact, plain and simple. >> russia, for years, has conducted influence operations, targeting our elections, all the way through the cold war up to our most recent election. >> i think we have to assume, for all the reasons discussed here, that the russians will be back and possibly other state actors and possibly other bad cyber actors. >> if we fail to act it's only a matter of time before a major election is disrupted or stolen in a cyber attack. >> joining me now is kristen welker from the white house f it ain't new, it ain't news. i don't like talking about things that happened in the past.
once again, another security establishment professional in the united states, jeh johnson, now not homeland security secretary, saying that the russians interfered to some degree. yet another person saying something that sean spicer couldn't confirm to you yesterday in the white house brief. >> reporter: it was a stunning moment, ali, yesterday, in the white house press briefing room. sean spicer was asked if the president, in fact, does believe that russia was responsible for meddling in the 2016 race. spicer said he hadn't spoken to the president about that. striking moment because, obviously, this is something we've been discussing for months now. the president himself has been a little bit all over the map on this. at times he said he does believe it was russia. in other instances he has allowed it might be some other country, like china, as well. this is something that gets under the president's skin, the notion that somehow there is a cloud hanging over his election
results but it is something that is disconcerting for a number of people on capitol hill, republicans and democrats, who want to know why the president hasn't expressed more concern about the bottom line fact that russia meddled in the election, something confirmed by a number of officials. the president's current concern, ali, is that this discussion overshadows his agenda. he wants to be talking about things like health care reform, particularly with the senate working on trying to hammer out a bill. he wants to be talking about tax reform. something he wants to tackle, of course, after health care is done. every time russia is brought up and this issue, it distracts from that broader message. today, he will be hitting the road, heading to iowa. he will undoubtedly try to get back on track with his entire agenda. a press person is going to hold what's called a gaggle, to answer questions from reporters aboard air force one. i would anticipate that sean spicer, sara huckabee sanders, whoever conducts that gaggle, will answer questions about what
sean couldn't answer yesterday, ali. >> kristen welker at the white house, thank you. clint watts was with us earlier in the show. he is the msnbc national security analyst, former fbi special agent, senior fellow at george washington university center for cyber and homeland security. clint, interesting comment from jeh johnson, addressing a question from jay gowdy. if so many people knew so much about the russians trying to meddle in the election last year, was it not our right, as americans, without giving us the whole story, to tell us something about it? listen to jeh johnson. >> so what more could we have done, should we have done before the election? >> in retrospect, it would have been easy for me to say i should have bought a sleeping bag and camped in and out front of the dnc in late summer, with the benefit of hindsight. i can tell you for certain that
in the late summer/fall i was very concerned about what i was seeing. this was on my front burner all throughout the pre-election period in august, september, october and early november to encourage the states to come in and seek our assistance. >> so, clint, as a former fbi agent, as a security analyst, i know you can hold two thoughts in your mind at the same time. >> right. >> whether or not this caused donald trump to win is a separate issue from the fact that someone everybody thinks -- everybody who would know the russians are meddling. at what point do americans have the right to know this type of information without compromising intelligence work? >> i think the obama administration during that period knew that something was going on but didn't quite understand how all the pieces worked together.
the fbi released new details about the deceased shooter, 66-year-old man enter rented a storage unit, visiting it more than 43 times between april and june where authorities found more than 200 rounds of ammunition. we're also learning hodgkinson had visited bernie sanders' office, had communication via e-mail between tammy duckworth and dick durbin between january and the time of the shooting. >> it appears from some of his communication close to the event that he was running out of
money. he was not employed at the time of the event and was looking for some local employment. clearly, he was married for 30 years. it appears that that marriage was not going so well. he suffered, obviously, from taking some prescription medication which i'm not going to get into. and it was just a pattern of life where you could tell things were not going well. >> at this point, the investigation, the fbi does not believe that there is a connection to terrorism. coming up next, president trump's senior adviser and son-in-law, jared kushner in israel, meeting with palestinian officials, attempting to restart the peace talks in the middle east. and a surprising development in saudi arabia that may actually help the mideast peace process.

jared kushner is trying right now to create peace in the middle east, meeting with president mahmoud abbas. he met with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu, with whom he has history. thanks to the prime minister's office, u.s. cameras were not there to catch the meeting. columnist for the intercept who
follows middle eastern issues very closely. what is the likelihood of a guy doing the job of secretary of state but no diplomatic experience with the likely to succeed? none of the experts had middle east peace succeed. maybe he's on to something. >> you can be a little snarky. who appoints his 36-year-old son-in-law who has zero experience at foreign affairs and diplomacy. property developer with a dubious business record whose father paid for a place in harvard for him and will solve this conflict. what we should really be talking about is how his presence actually undermines america's role as a peace broker in the region. for a long time now, palestinians, more broadly, have accused america of being more
biased and not an honest broker and now jared kushner has been sent, when he and his family have been involved in the investigations that have been such a conflict to the peace deal for so long. >> secretary of state rex tillerson is apparently not involved in this process. is there any outside way in which you can see this meeting that's going on right now with mahmoud abbas resulting in the palestinians saying, all right, maybe you're on to something. let's talk. >> no, i don't, to be honest. rex tillerson is not involved in many processes that he should be involved in. but in terms of jared kushner, kushner and jason greenblat who is he traveling with, the other envoy, who also says he doesn't have a problem with settlements, doesn't see it as an obstacle to peace. he's a former property lawyer. and then there's jared kushner,
his son-in-law. these three people are supposed to revive the peace process? palestinians say they will not come to the table until there is some clear understanding about what they're coming to the table for. is settlement building going to stop? netanyahu government has announced more and more settlement units despite the president saying take a pause on those settlements. >> there was a change in the succession plan for saudi arabia, typically something not too many americans would care about. but something you've written that may help the mideast peace process. >> whether it helps the middle east peace process or not, i think it is a big deal. mbs, the 31-year-old deputy crown prince in saudi arabia, now the crown prince of saudi arabia, running saudi arabia already, the defense minister, launching this mad war in yemen that's been such a disaster. he started this row with -- i do a show for al jazeera.
this blockade with qatar that hasn't worked. he is now in the driving seat in the richest country in the region, most powerful country in the region and people are looking to see what he does next. will he do a deal with israel? will he be one of the first arab countries that recognize israel? one thing i will say, ali, is that jared kushner and he are supposed to be quite good friends. they're princes from their house and there isn't much there in terms of substance. that's a worry in such a controversial part of the world. >> thank you very much for joining me, an expert on these areas for the various jobs he does in which he covers global affairs. as senate republicans continue to work out their health care bill in secret, many americans are wondering what the future of health care means for them. i'll talk to the vice president of the american diabetes association after that group requested a meeting with senator mitch mcconnell to discuss the bill. what do they want out of the

or girl tomorrow about 9:30. >> lindsey graham hasn't seen the bill either. as negotiations continue on the american health care act behind closed doors, i'll remind you, in the senate, let's take a closer look at one of the most serious medical conditions affecting americans today, diabetes. let me show you a little bit about diabetes. more than 29 million americans currently have diabetes, approximately 25% of those cases are undiagnosed. why would you have undiagnosed diabetes? probably because you don't go to a doctor. why do you not go to a doctor? maybe because you can't afford it. diabetes is very, very serious business. it kills approximately 69,000 americans every year. that is much more than breast cancer and aids combined. treatment for diabetes is very expensive. average medical expenditures for people with diabetes, $13,700, of which $7,900 is attributed directly to diabetes but diabetes has a lot of things
associated with it. this means many lower income americans cannot treat diabetes. a lot of those people don't have to die. this matters because counties in america that have a poverty rate greater than 35% have obesity rates that are 145% greater than wealthier counterparts. obesity and diabetes go hand in hand, a particular type of boo diabetes prevalent in america. lower income americans are drastically more likely to be diabetic for a number of systemic reasons. many of these individuals are stuck in limbo as the gop debate this is new bill, unsure if they will be able to afford treatment going forward. >> advocacy for the american diabetes association, dr. shaun
mcgeaver. your association is one of more than a dozen which represent serious illnesses in america who have asked for a meeting with mitch mcconnell and the senate to discuss this bill. what has the response been to your request for a meeting? >> so, unfortunately, the request was denied and it was very disappointing for us because we've been involved in the process throughout, the entire process, looking at the proposals coming forth. 1 in 11 americans have diabetes. this is a significant disease and, as you said, many people are disproportionately impacted by diabetes that are from low-income communities. we have great concerns. >> tell us -- again, i tried to illustrate this for our viewers. to what degree does action toes medical treatment change the prognosis for certain sufferers of diabetes? >> well, if a person doesn't have access to the care they
need, unfortunately, they'll withgo going to their physicians. they won't benefit have a medical team care for them, have limited resources in terms of access the medications and device that they need to manage their disease. it's a condition where the patient is really the primary person responsible for ensuring that the management of their disease is done. we're concerned that people will not get the care that they need. and that can lead to complications such as blindness, amputations. >> which then costs the system more. if you're not insured in the first place to get diabetes treatment, then your amputation and your blindness and other complications are still going to cost the system and the taxpayer more. >> yes. unfortunately, diabetes accounts for $322 billion in costs a year for indirect and direct costs related to the disease. this is a critical issue.
we want to see what is being proposed so we can weigh in. so many americans are depending on this. >> one of the things when i argue with people about health care, one of the things people say issing su just mentioned. when it comes to diabetes, the individual tends to be the person most responsible for dealing with t i'm going to flip that on its head. if people are responsible for living longer and healthier lives with diabetes, then why should it be the public and the government's responsibility? >> what i meant by that is that a person with diabetes is responsible for the day-to-day management of their disease. what i would want to focus on is the access issue here. you know, as you said, if people don't go, the complications and all of those things that will impact a person negatively, it ultimately will impact all of us. it's incredibly important that people have access to care. we're concerned that will be in
jeopardy. >> dr. lashawn mciver, for the american diabetes association. >> thank you. up next, in-depth look at mern america's opioid epidemic. in one ohio county jails are now becoming makeshift detox centers. hey katy, i'm going to go ahead and invade your personal space to run some things by you. it's going to look like i'm listening but i'm actually just paying attention to nugget. cool. i'll pretend you're answering the questions i have. i'll scroll through my feed and avoid making eye contact. i'm just going to keep hovering. wouldn't it be great if everyone said what they meant? hovering away. boo boo boo [making noise at nugget] the citi® double cash card does. only citi lets you earn 1% cash back when you buy, and 1% as you pay. the citi® double cash card.
