8:00 am
caffeine-free. >> sometimes you need it. >> we're going to google that woman. >> wow. >> poor thing. >> have a great tuesday. see you later. bye-bye. >> the secretary of state offering rush she a stark choice on syria. join the u.s. and our allies or take the side of iran and hezbollah and the regime. >> welcome back. good to have you here. >> thank you. rex tillerson arriving in moscow days after a deadly chemical attack by syrian forces that killed dozens of civilians and horrified the world. sparking a u.s. missile strike on a syrian air base. it's mr. tillerson's first trip to russia as secretary of state. he said that bashar al-assad will not be in power much longer and there's no future for russia
8:01 am
siding with a dictator that murders his own people. >> russia has aligned itself with the assad regime, the iranians and hezbollah. is that a long-term alliance? russia can be a part of the future and play an important role or russia can maintain its alliance with this group, which we believe is not going to serve russia's interests longer term. >> we have live fox team coverage with amy kellogg at the g-7 meeting in italy. we begin with kevin work. >> it's been argued that the president's policies and ideas about syria have evolved from candidate trump to now commander-in-chief trump. one thing is certain. that is the white house is consistent assertion that the only way forward in syria is without the leadership of bashar al-assad. that means that russia would have to join the rest of the
8:02 am
international community in seeing the end to his reign. that's the message rex tillerson is taking to moscow. >> it's our policy for a unified syria governed by the people of syria. i think it's clear to all of us that the reign of the assad family is coming to an end. but the question of how that ends and the transition itself could be very important in our view to the durability, the stability inside of a unified syria. >> stability is something that the folks in syria have not seen very much of since the beginning of the bloody civil war there. yesterday we heard sean spicer talking about russia's role in syria. he called them a principle stakeholder. he made it clear that the only way forward is for russia to get on board with the rest of the international community. >> i think that we need to make sure that russia fully
8:03 am
understands the actions that assad took, the commitments that syria has made and russia has equally agreed to those same understandings. so getting them back on the same page would be the logical step. >> back on the same page. not just with the u.s. but broadly speaking the rest of the world and trying to figure out a safe way forward for the people of syria that have been besieged by war. and there's michael ratney, the special envoy. he will be at the white house briefing the president and trying to get more clearance and more understanding about what the u.s. would see as the best way forward. that is, what can they do with respect to russia. can they make a deal with the kremlin to get them on board. meantime, back to you. >> interesting times there at the white house where you're covering.
8:04 am
kevin corke, thank you. >> secretary of state rex tillerson meeting with g7 leaders discussing just what kevin was describing. the group debating whether moscow should face more sanctions for supporting the syrian regime. amy kellogg has more. >> hi, jenna. the britts were pushing the idea of further sanctions, targeted sanctions, against military officials in syrian and the russian ministries of defense. frankly, the consensus here among the europeans broadly was that this isn't really the time to be boxing very influential russia into a corner, this is maybe a moment with pressure, but to bring them on board. there's a bit of an allergy to further sanction russia. europeans want to get back to business with russia. as this summit was going on hosted by the italians in italy, italy's president was in moscow
8:05 am
meeting with president putin. they were talking about, among other things, bolstering economic ties. so at this point, know accord on sanctions. that could change after an independent investigation of what happened in syria, possibly bears out facts and if russia remains in denial of what that investigation finds. things could change. but for now, i think there was employment here in italy that this is a rare moment of opportunity to ratchet up the pressure on syria, to get the political process going again and a cease fire. the strategy after that remains less clear. >> so that's why we're not presupposing how that occurs. i think it's clear that we see no further role for the assad regime longer term given that they have effectively given up their legitimacy with these type of attacks. >> was the chemical attack
8:06 am
tuesday and the u.s.'s follow up missile strikes that led to this moment of opportunity, this window of opportunity, this agreement that really there needs to be a stronger push to pressure syria into changing its behavior. all that said, there's this idea coming out of italy that it's important to make russia understand that it's not in their own national interesting to be siding anymore with bashar al-assad and iran and hezbollah as we've told you about but rather to disassociate itself and to get in lock step with the other countries. in order to support further, secretary of state rex tillerson here in italy, his italian counter part at the last minute invited an arab delegation to italy and the turkish foreign minister. there was a very unified backing
8:07 am
of secretary tillerson before he september off on the important meeting to moscow. he's in moscow now. it's been announced that friday russia will be hosting iran and syria in moscow. so what happens next is unclear. will president putin be bringing a message from tillerson to those other parties or will somehow it turn out to be a show of defiance once again against the rest of the international community, jenna. we'll have to wait and see. >> thanks, amy. john? >> president trump was known on the campaign trail for his brash rhetoric. criticizing china, nato, the iran nuclear deal. but so far his approach to foreign policy and national security has been pretty conventional. that's according to the "wall street journal" in a column entitled "five players steer trump's diplomacy to center." he writes some trump fans are
8:08 am
unhappy, but the establishment is breathing a bit easier. jerry joins us now. he's the executive washington editor for the "wall street journal." there were so many concerns in the u.s. senate when rex tillerson was chosen to be his nominee of secretary of state. they said you won this award from vladimir putin, you're going to cozy up to him. now he's headed to russia and putin isn't even going to meet with him. is that an exhibit of what you're talking about? >> ironically, rex tillerson has been tougher on russia than anybody else in the last few days. it's one of the ways in which the governing trump style is different than the campaigning trump style suggested. there was not only chumminess of russia, a fear on some people's part of kind of a neoisolationist trend. retreating from the world. we're going to focus on our own problems. what you have instead and you saw this in the syria strike last week, a willingness to get
8:09 am
engaged in the world's hot spots and to be aggressive about it. so it's different from the campaign trump in some respects. i think it is much more conventional as i suggested. more of a mainstream foreign policy than some people expected so far. >> the burdens of the office weigh on each president differently. but when he came out after the gas attack and talked about the babies, he sounded like a grandfather who dotes on his grandchildren. i wonder, could it be? that simple or are there true re-alignments in policy thinking? >> i think it's both. you talk to presidents over time, you feel this hurt and these things personally. you have as the united states president the power, the opportunity to do something, to change tragic events and the temptation is always to do it. sometimes, you know, you have to
8:10 am
leave them alone. no doubt there's a personal element to it. there's an align meant of forces in the administration that is more ascendent. it's rex tillerson and general mcmasters and wilbur ros, the commerce secretary and jared kushner, the presidential son-in-law. they have all steered policy toward a little bit more internationalist approach and a little more conventional approach. >> he was excoriated for saying the nato alliance outlived its usefulness. now he's leaning on nato more and more, don't you? >> yeah. and in asia, you see him backing up the alliance with our asian allies and in particular japan. so this is one of the things that rex tillerson and jim mattis have done to an administration foreign policy. they have pushed it in the direction of reinforcing and
8:11 am
renewing support for traditional alliances. nato, in europe and in the asian alliances particularly with the north korean threat. that is an important early sign that this was going to be slightly different in governing style than campaign rhetoric might have suggested. a senior administration said thank goodness there's no law that you have to govern the way you campaigned. these true for every president. >> fascinating. his base might be screaming, but the establishment breathes easier so far in this administration. jerry seib from the journal." >> thanks. >> and tensions rise after a warning from north korea. president trump said that the north is looking for trouble. we'll have the latest from seoul ahead.

8:15 am
affiliate in tampa. in sarasota, the school bus involved in a pretty severe collision, as you can see. 13 students on board the bus at the time. seven of them were hospitalized. all of them expected to survive. to make it even more tragic, these are students headed to a special needs school. oak park school in sarasota. firefighters do say though that none of the injuries appear to be severe. the investigation is still ongoing. some of the roads in particular there are close as they investigate the cause of this school bus crash. sarasota, florida, seven hospitalized. none of the injuries serious. >> jenna: tensions rising with north korea. the rogue regime warns the united states against military action. this comes as a strike group heads to the peninsula. greg palkot has more. >> hi, jenna. year hearing more tough tong
8:16 am
from pyongyang and more of a show of force here in the south. 4,000 u.s. and south korean troops massed in the southern part of the peninsula. they were staging a mock landing of a lot of cargo involving ships and trucks. it's this logistical backup that folks say are -- would be required if there was any kind of a military offensive, aggression by north korea. very important to show the u.s. and south korea working together as well. this drives pyongyang crazy. they call it a rehearsal for war. today the regime was spoking out about the u.s.s. carl vinson carrier strike group coming in the next ten days. they called it "reckless, catastrophic and outrageous" and yes, they say north korea is ready for war. today in pyongyang, there was a -- the annual assembly.
8:17 am
it's the rubber stamp for parliament. we got a glimpse of kim jong-un there. nothing was decided at that. we're expecting him to be at a large military parade this saturday. that marks the anniversary of the birthday of the founder of north kia, kim il-song. this is a huge date on the north korean calendar. and according to our experience on the ground, north korea uses it to do something nefarious, missile launches in the past. experts say there might be readying at a site in the past that has been used to detonate a nuclear device.l see about that. in fact, today here in seoul, the acting president of south korea warned about just such an event, either missile launch or nuclear device and put his country on heightened security alert. one more note, jenna, officials
8:18 am
in seoul in the last couple days have been trying to tap down nervousness about a preemptive military strike perhaps led by the united states against north korea. all-out war in the korean peninsula, some people remember that and realize that would be too devastating. all efforts to try to resolve this in another way. back to you. >> jenna: greg, thank you. >> jon: the man accused of plow ing a truck in stockholm, sweden, confesses to the crime. his lawyer says he's admitting to "terrorism." allegedly he stole a beer truck and ran it into a high end department store. four people were killed. more than a dozen others injured. >> secretary of state rex tillerson pushing for a syrian leadership change. our next guest discusses whether the trump administration can accomplish that goal. touches sticks with them.

we do business where you do business. ♪ ♪ >> jon: a fox news alert. we'll show you what's going on at the white house in this taped playback in some remarks that president trump is making. the american people voted to put a business man in the white house, so it's no surprise that he has convened a ceo council around him. ceos to talk strategy and policy. we understand in the president's remarks, he's talking about business and trying to improve the business climate in america. he did not answer any questions about north korea or syria. so as the president -- you can see elaine chow, his secretary of commerce to his right, screen left. as the president continues to make these remarks, the ceo policy organization, we'll keep
8:23 am
you updated. >> the reign of the assad family is coming to an end. we see no further role for the assad regime longer term. >> jenna: president trump not talking about syria, but secretary of state rex tillerson is. he says time is running out for the assad regime. a similar stand, different words, was taken by the obama administration and was calling for assad's removal many times. >> the transition to democracy in syria has begun. it's time for assad to get out of the way. >> we condemn this indiscriminate killing of innocent civilians and we condemn it in the strongest terms. it's just further evidence that assad has to go. >> i think assad is going to have to leave in order for the country to stop the blood shedding and for all the parties involved to be able to move
8:24 am
forward in a nonsectarian way. >> jenna: former u.s. ambassa r ambassador, ceo of meridian is here. >> thank you. >> jenna: will the efforts of the trump administration elicit a different result than the past administration? >> i think the difference is, secretary tillerson is going to moscow after the united states has demonstrated the seriousness in which it takes these indiscriminate chemical attacks on civilians. i think that's really a foretelling of what the administration is willing to do going forward. i also think the difference is -- the trump administration is open to a deal and is looking for a way to basically draw a line and say to the russians, either you're going to be backing a regime on its way out
8:25 am
or you can be part of a political settlement. the russians for their part will looking at syria has been a client state for 40 years. they're going to look for their streak interests, whether the port or a continued economic benefit. >> jenna: the strikes in syria actually gave rex tillerson some political leverage. sounds like you agree with that. >> i do agree with that. it demonstrates there's a willingness to back up the intention. it was a very focused statement on where that line is, which is not that necessarily there's regime change as a means to an end, but that we're clear that assad can't continue to have the legitimate governing role for his people but we're willing to work on a settlement. if he continues to use chemical weapons against his people, that choice won't be his. >> jenna: can we say the assad
8:26 am
reign must end without say ing who we want to see reign in syria? >> that's where the hard work is right now. in order for the russians not to point to libya or elsewhere and saying we're going to leave a vacuum and leave more civilian casualties, we have to come together to figure out what kind of government by the people, by the syrian people can be put together. that is really where a lot of the very, very tough diplomatic and political work needs to take place. >> jenna: does that get us involved in nation building? that's one of the criticisms for past wars in recent memory. >> there's nation building that involves taking over the ownership of the economic development process. and then there's in effect a consensus outside of the nation, a diplomatic consensus. whether you look at iraq, libya, there was not consensus on that. that's why tillerson's mission
8:27 am
is so important. we're going to need to have, again, for the right settlement, we need the russians at least have a seat at the table given their interests there. >> jenna: i'm so curious why you think the russians are willing to deal, based on the state just put out. a joint statement of supporters by syria. russia is part of the statement and iran is part of it. here's what the statement says. >> jenna: you know, that sounds scary. it's a two-part question. why do you think they're ready to deal despite those words? what is the threat to us if they're not? >> i think this is posturing by the russians. they're going to invite the iranians and syrians to moscow. the question is, you know, the
8:28 am
russians have a complicated relationship with iran. they're not close allies. they have a shared interest in syria. the question is, can we convince the russians in effect to have a -- in effect a proclamation of solidarity about standing up to the united states, but in effect, peel him off and let him know that his interests, long-term -- he has problems all over the world. challenges. whether it's ukraine, the caucuses. they're testing us. we have to stand, we have to stand firm. we also have to get a bilateral and very clear channel with putin so that we can exert the kind of leverage that we need. >> jenna: we'll see what this meeting produces and what comes the rest of the week from secretary of state rex tillerson. thanks, ambassador. >> thank you. >> jon: at these complicating events unfold, we have new information about the attacks that killed dozens of civilians
8:29 am
in a northern syrian town. and the white house trying to keep up with almost constant leaks to the press. our panel on why the trump administration has struggled to keep information from getting out. what makes this simple salad the best simple salad ever?

heart healthy california walnuts. the best simple veggie dish ever? heart healthy california walnuts. the best simple dinner ever? heart healthy california walnuts. great tasting, heart healthy california walnuts. so simple. get the recipes at walnuts.org. >> jenna: turkey's health minister confirms that sarin gas, the nerve agent, was used in syria's deadly attack after autopsies were done on several
8:33 am
victims brought to turkey. right now the u.s. and other nations are pressuring russia to break ties with that country over that attack. we have live in turkey not far from the border with more. benjamin? >> hi, jenna. if you want to find out what is going on to syria, you come to border towns like this. they're packed with people and fighters from the front line. that's what the turkey is trying to prevent. >> the border between turkey and syria was once a porous life line for the groups inside. but since isis has gone stronger, turkey has done everything they can to shut the border down. now they're running a wall that runs the length of the border. it's impossible to cross into syria at the moment. there's too many armed groups,
8:34 am
too many kidnaps and tomorrow bombs. stories drip out that paint a picture of a country in chaos. we spoke to a commander from a u.s.-backed group. he said at the moment they're fighting on all sides. >> isis was created by assad after excessive force. iran, which is a terrorist country, hezbollah which is a terrorist group and isis too. he went on to say under the obama administration, there was a lack of policy here. but with trump, they're optimistic. they're worried if things are not backed up, it might slip and assad might up the game and continue to attack his people. on that note, we're learning that assad just today has been dropping barrel bombs again on his people in the hamma
8:35 am
province. they're barrels filled with nails aimed at helicopters. the u.s. says the continued use of the barrel bombs could result in more u.s. strikes. so we see the assad regime playing dangerously, trying to antagonize the u.s. daily. jenna? >> jenna: thank you. >> jon: the trump administration is fast approaching the 100-day mark. the white house is scrambling to present mr. trump's first few months in the best light possible. so how important is this 100-day milestone? howard kurtz writing today. any new administration is a work in progress. as the year wears on, we'll see if trump can break through on tax cuts and infrastructure projects. the president is judged on his ability to respond to unforeseen crises. we hlan here from talk
8:36 am
media news and a fox news contributor. 100 days, kevin, is it important? >> it's not. it's an artificial time line that people have put in place. i'm of the opinion that donald trump could cure cancer, develop nuclear fusion energy and the press would say he's a failure. he needs to keep straight ahead with the agenda that he's started in this shotgun blast to his administration. >> fair or not, ellen, the white house convened a meeting of the communications people to try to come up with ways to sort of sell their accomplishments in the first 100 days. a meeting that was almost immediately leaked, i might add. >> yes, there are a lot of leaks for sure. that is because washington is a very ego driven town. the 100 days is not important,
8:37 am
although the white house may be trying to meet some of the press' expectation about that. the 100 days is not as important as the long haul. >> in an online column, kevin, cnn referred to it as a largely winless first 100 days in office. how do you see it? >> that's laughable. he's already delivered on his biggest promise to the evangelical containment of his party with the nomination and successful swearing in of judge gorsuch. he's seen massive numbers of companies saying they're going to keep production in the united states. that's going to turn into jobs. you have the keystone pipe line talking about infrastructure. things un der the radar like inner city development like carson is working on. the number one thing that trump did, he did not come out trying
8:38 am
to take one issue on at a time. he said we're going to do everything at once and he's been successful. he's had growing pains. it's by far been a successful 82 days in office. >> jon: he comes into office action an experienced businessman, alan. a lot of people have said, if he tried a project and one approach didn't work, he would try another approach. do you see that in his signs to govern something. >> i do see signs of his business approach to governing. in business, you have somebody that pretends or at least gives service to the boss. but in our government, we have three branches of government, plus the public, plus the fourth estate, which is the press. it's a different situation. >> jon: you're saying it's like having three ceos of a corporation. you have to mulify them all.
8:39 am
>> yes. and it's very different. >> jon: kevin, how is he doing? >> i think the one weakness that deserves criticism is that it's he communications team has struggled. i'm not talking about spicer and the daily briefings. those are fine. the overall ability to sell the story -- to tell the story and sell the story of what they have done has not been impressive. if someone in the trump white house is talking, contact us on talk road on either side of the aisle. we know how to present the narrative and could be successful. look at his record. he has a story to tell. the problem is it's being told badly. >> jon: if your phone rings, let us know. we would love to tap into that conversation. >> i'll transfer it to ellen.
8:40 am
>> jon: thanks, kevin and ellen. thank you both. >> thank you. >> jenna: we're talking a little bit about the economy. show you the markets today. the dow trading lower by more than 100 points. it's coming back off the lows. but one of the reasons apparently for this, there's some concern about the international environment. you have different assets like gold, for example, taking $20 higher today. that happens when investors are worried about the stock market or worried about the economy and growing to gold. this is one snapshot. we'll see where the market closes. a video of a passenger being driven off a united airlines fight sparking social media. was this legal? what are your rights as a passenger if you're bumped from your next flight? we weigh-in ahead.
8:41 am
8:42 am
8:43 am
♪ to err is human. to anticipate is lexus. experience the lexus rx with advanced safety standard. experience amazing. >> jenna: a passenger on a united airline flight was drove off the plane after it was
8:44 am
overbooked. united offered $800. no one stepped up, this man refused to get off and was forcibly removed. that's what you're seeing on the screen. the united airlines ceo offering this statement saying "this is an upsetting event to all of us here at united. i apologize to have to reaccommodate these customers. our team is moving with a sense of urgency to work with the authorities and conduct our own detailed review of what happened. we're reaching out to this passenger to talk to him and further address and resolve this situation." joining me now, bob, a former criminal defense attorney and phil holloway, from the governor department sheriff's department. bob, i'm curious about that statement. i apologize for reaccommodating customers. if that's what reaccommodating looks like, i never want to be re-accommodated ever. >> i'm in a business consulting
8:45 am
firm and we deal with something like, this when you use fuzzy words like "re-accommodate", when a guy is being treated worse like overhead baggage being dragged out of there, you can't use those words. it was inappropriate for them to do. there's a million other ways to handle this situation. i don't think that that statement helped them at all. >> i'm curious how that statement would come into a case. but let's back up for a second. he's getting dragged off the plane. crazy. does he have a case against the airline or against the security? does he have a case at all? >> certainly the security officers and the police officers, it's like them responding to a major league ball game where security says look, you know, you've got to go because management wants you out. it's not really security's job to second guess whether somebody or shouldn't be kicked out of
8:46 am
the ballpark. they're simply responding to managemented or united airlines to have somebody removed from the plane. i put the blame on the airlines. what they're trying to do and reflected in the statement by the ceo, they're trying to spin this as something called that denial of boarding, which is something that has to occur at the gase. this is a refusal to let the guy fly. he was already seated. under the contract of carriage, his rights are much stronger -- he basically has to be presenting a safety issue at the point they remove him or committing misconduct. >> jenna: a lot of us don't read the fine print when we buy a ticket. here's what it states. if you look further down on this statement that we agree to when we buy a ticket, it's
8:47 am
"passengers fail to comply with or enter few with the duties of the flight crew." does this fall under that? the crew is trying to do its beauty, the passenger said no but he was in violation of this rule? >> i agree with phil. it's clear. he had already boarded the plane. the policy is also clear under the cfrs and the law it's that he has to be given written notification and an explanation as to why he's being removed and what the policy is from united. you have two areas of liability here. one is against united for no following the law. it's a no-brainer. they're in trouble for that. >> bob, let many read the rule. "united airlines has a right to refuse transport or right to remove from the aircraft at any point." >> those are listed for people with very specific reasons why the flight crew believes they're a danger. remember what happened here. they booked four flights for
8:48 am
employees and took a paying customer off. the manner in which they took the customer off was inappropriate. plain and simple. i don't see them getting around that. and these the use of force by the enforcement authorities was excessive. if i was a passenger and i had to come to fox news, they did no triaging. did you have to go to a funeral? this whole thing about a lottery system without asking if you have connecting flights or anything like that is a poor pollty. >> jenna: when you get on an airplane, it's easy to feel that you don't have rights. when you get on it, you feel vulnerable. so brings up the broader question, which is what are your legal rights as a passenger? can an airline remove you for any reason when they screw up and overbook? >> what they can do if they're overbooking, they should have handled it at the gate. if you're at the gate, they have
8:49 am
more discretion. basically you don't have security having to come into a close quarters situation like in the coach section of an airline, which is really, really close. if you have any kind of physical altercation, it's likely somebody will get hurt. when i was in law enforcement, i've been involved in situations not on airliners but we had to respond to private property to remove somebody that didn't go. if they physically resisted, we had to use some degree of force. i didn't see the police pounding on this person or getting beaten. i believe he was accidentally injured on the handrail or the arm rest. i didn't see the police doing anything excessive. i do disagree a little bit on that point. this should have been handled at the gate. they could have let the air crew get into the car and drive the four or five hours to louisville, could have offered more money, done lots of things other than call the police on somebody that was minding his own business trying to get home. >> the bottom line, they did not
8:50 am
follow the code of federal regulation, that requires that before you remove the passenger, you have to speak to them what their rights are. the reason they have that, maybe the person would understand when they saw the policy, they saw the rights and understood what they were legally entitled to do and not do. if i had to come to fox news the next day and they told bob that you can't go, they would have been dragging me down that aisle. >> jenna: i wouldn't want to see that. if it happens, we want an exclusive. >> you got it. >> jenna: we'll see. $800 is what united offered him. might cost more. we'll see. thanks. >> thanks. >> jon: the governor of alabama forced to resign. robert bentley steps down rather than be impeached. the sex scandal that forced him out and the charges he faces.
