obama getting a reception. certainly the bush family was close with the saudis, and president george w. bush and h.w. bush both received this kind of welcome. i think the saudis wanted this visit to go well. they wanted to make sure that president trump was treated like a very important leader, someone that they wanted to restore the relationship with after the acrimony, and i think largely they did that. i think the smile on the president's face was genuine, that he felt that he was being treated, you know, like the leader he feels he deserving to be treat ed some of the backlas has been partly because president trump when he was a citizen criticized that first lady michelle obama didn't wear a head scarf. this is what he tweeted -- many are people say -- but they were insulted. we have enough enemies. give us a reality check on this, elise. >> president trump didn't declare his candidacy at that point, but certainly he was considering it. i think it's another thing, it's the rhetoric of being a citizens or a candidate versus governing. it's up to every woman who is in an official del

just through their strength of personality. obama did the same thing. george bush did the same thing. so this is not an uncommon thing to say, okay, we'll fix it with russia. and then really it becomes difficult when you say how, what are we going to do given the fact that we know that the russians did indeed conduct an influence operation during our elections? i think what we need to do is we need to take a very close look at our cyber capabilities and both offensive and defensive. it's hard to create it when you're connected to the internet designed for the free flow of information. you have to see this as a nuclear situation. you have to make it so unattractive for your enemy in this case russia to conduct such an attack in future. the only way you can do that is to be able to threaten significant cyber damage yourself. it's very tricky. it's a very slippery slope. just like nuclear weapons are. that's what we have to take a look at. that's where our military might and planning and r&d needs to be focused in the coming months and years. >> thank you both. >>> still to come, did pr

not cuts to medicaid, george. this slows the rate for the future and allows states more flexibility with medicaid dollars because they're closest to the people in need. its founding was meant the help the poor, the sick, the needy, the disabled, children, some elderly, particularly pregnant women. we are trying to get it back to its original -- >> so there you heard the white house's argument that these changes shouldn't be seen as cuts because what they're doing is ending expansion of the medicaid program, the expansion under obamacare. and they're also putting a cap on the future. others would view it differently because fewer people would be able to qualify in the future for this program. and the congressional budget office, they did score an earlier version of this bill in the house that also had similar changes to the medicaid program and found that it would amount to more than $800 billion in cuts. so that is what the cbo found. we'll see how they score this new bill. but there's real discrepancy what the white house is putting on this and the senator. >>> accused hillary clin

repeating it. it shows this is a white house shake by fox news in a nun week way, george w. bush's white house was not shaped to this degree. what's different now with president trump is that he and his advisors are shaped by fox. there's a lot of different connections, a web of connections between trump and fox, and of course he's cheered on by fox opinion hosts like sean hannity and bill o'reilly so there's this web of connections that are unique. if you talk to historians, they say this is a degree that is unusual for a president. >> what's interesting to me is remember back during the campaign, it seemed liable they were at each other. he actually didn't even go to one of the debates that was hosted by fox news because of his confrontation with megyn kelly and the back and forth there. >> that was january 2016, that was a little more than a year ago, he skipped that debate because of megyn kelly,nd now megin kelley is not there, it's not that they don't have liberals on, they do have liberals on the network. but the overall theme of the channel is to try to support the presiden
