to it. >> reporter: when you look at these kids and being a mother, we want to enjoy them, this men and women who keep us safe and those who made the ultimate sacrifice, thank you for joining us, we will be back with more news tomorrow at 1:00 pm. >> donald trump heading back to the white house after nine busy days overseas, the president departing from a us airbase in sicily earlier this afternoon touting his trip as a, quote, homerun. happy saturday, welcome to a brand-new hour inside america's news headquarters. >> donald trump wrapping up with a message to us troops telling service members stationed at the airbase in sicily that he will never back down from the fight against global terrorism. amy kellogg, how did the trip go
11:01 am
on the ground? >> reporter: according to donald trump it was a home run, not only that but one of his senior advisers saying this reaffirmed america's global leadership abroad. they talked about all the deals, have $1 trillion in deals signed in saudi arabia, then more firm and unified stance against terrorism, trump advises that the meetings went well, they were warm and cordial. some in europe talking about the g-7 being g6 plus one with the one being donald trump, many of his ideas diverge from the europeans but france's newly elected centrist president emmauel macron said he praised trump's capacity to listen and progress. trump speaking to and thinking troops at the naval air station
11:02 am
says his tough talk earlier in the week on nato members is paying off so none of us are privy to the particular details of that particular homerun. >> money is actually starting to pour into nato from countries that would not have been doing what they are doing now had i not been elected i can tell you that. money is starting to pour in. it is only fair to the united states. we want to be treated fairly and we are behind nato all the way but we want to be treated fairly. >> reporter: what he is talking about his other nato members contribute to% of their total budget to their military. that is the regulation and just to five nato members are doing that. laura: we have been hearing about the paris climate agreement. where to the g7 leaders stand on that?
11:03 am
>> reporter: when i talked about the g6 plus 1 in the final communiqué donald trump did not sign on with the rest of the g7 members about supporting the 2015 paris accord that president obama signed limits on emissions and sidelined for segueing into economies of clean energy. trump said he needs to go back home and give it more thought, the white house is split about what to do. trump's biggest concern is stringent limits on emissions will cost american jobs. he needs to figure out the right thing to do. there was a bit of division there. uncle merkel -- angela merkel said it was unsatisfactory but next week we will see what donald trump decides and finally i want to point out so much has been made about this background, backdrop we have been seeing the
11:04 am
last few days in sicily, this was chosen not so much for its beauty but by the italians to highlight the issue of migration because 1500 migrants and refugees have drowned this year alone in the sea trying to make it to europe, make it to italy and italy has borne the brunt of this taking 200,000 refugees this year. italy wanted to say help defeat refugees and feed refugees and that issue maybe got short shrift in these days because of so many other concerns including terrorism. laura: thank you for the explanation, amy kellogg live in italy, interesting time. very important trip, thank you for all of that. >> we haven't gone a long time. everywhere i go.
11:05 am
we have been gone close to nine days. this will be nine days. i think we hit a homerun no matter where we are. >> reporter: donald trump calling his first overseas trip since taking office a success. how did he do? joining the is kelly, stephanie for the weekly standard, great to you. the thing people are talking about is donald trump scolding nato members for not paying their fair share. do you think he was right to call them out? why should american taxpayers bear an excess of financial burden for a defense that in many ways benefits european countries more than the us? >> he does have a point but to realize the 2% guideline is a guideline. it is not a strict regulation. nato members should do this, that is the guideline but they
11:06 am
don't have do. iceland, they only spend 0.1% of their gdp on defense. they don't have their own army. it will take a while for them to get close to that 2% but it is important to know that is 2% of their budget, their gdp, to be spent on defense for themselves. that is because you need to have -- they need to have strong defense. article 5 is invoked which states if one nato members attacked, all will pitch in to help, they have a strong enough military to do that pitching in to help. a wider context is important in talking to that. gregg: the president scolded germany for its trade imbalance with the us. will his tough talk pay some dividends in the form of better trade deals and adjusting trade
11:07 am
tariffs? >> it is possible but seems like europe is doing a little bit of talking to trump and trying to get him to go their way. this is going to be a negotiation and that is how trump approaches but that is how nato members approached it and they actually for example in the g7 they got trump to sign something that agreed protectionism. gregg: there was a carrot and stick to his negotiating style. the wall street journal said saudi arabia, israel and the west bank mister trump took a conciliatory approach, studiously avoided raising issues like civil rights that might have upset his hosts but in belgium and italy for gatherings with european leaders he took a harsher tone, excoriating european leaders on defense policies, trade and
11:08 am
immigration and he withheld public comment from europe's security that he knew they wanted to hear. in other words the infamous article v, if any one country is attacked we will come to that defense. what do you make of that? >> they are right that he took two approaches which would be perfectly fine if that was the way to get good deals made. he is a negotiator, if it's of different styles to make different details from different people great but i don't think that worked here. it is striking when the president goes to saudi arabia, gets this huge red carpet welcome at the airport which president obama got and this is a country in which women cannot drive. there are human rights abuses and he goes to europe and acts quite differently, scolding them, the famous moment of him
11:09 am
nudging the montenegrin leader out of the way. gregg: it was a more conciliatory tone in saudi arabia but he urged them to drive out the terrorists. stop financing, banish their violent ideology of hatred. that was the right tough tone and message, wasn't it? >> yes, and he reminded nato of that when he gave his speech at nato. he said i just met with all these middle eastern leaders and they agreed to stop funding extremism and terrorism. i don't know if that will happen but he is right that that is important even if they are only paying lip service and do a little bit, that is better than nothing and he's careful to remind them about nato. in a speech at nato he mentioned article v, the only time article 5 has been invoked was after
11:10 am
9/11 and nato did a clever thing in opening a memorial to that, they had a piece of the north tower, trying to get trump to celebrate article v and he mentioned it in his speech. appreciated the support but never came out. >> endorsement on article v. kelly jane torrence of the weekly standard, thank you. laura: british police making two more arrest in connection to the manchester bombing that killed 22 people, that brings the total number of people in custody to 11. the rest come as the uk lowers its terror threat level but urged citizens to remain vigilant. rick leventhal live with more on this. this is an evolving situation. >> reporter: authorities are concerned the suspected bomber
11:11 am
may have built more devices and that is why even though they did reduce the terror threat level from severe to critical, critical to severe, they are asking the public to remain vigilant and be on high alert through the three day bank holiday we can. manchester police have been carrying out an aggressive investigation, another location using control explosives to gain entry to a home. two more arrests today, 14 location still being searched by police, the chief constable saying we have made significant progress in this fast-moving and complex investigation working with the national terrorism police network and securing the arrest of 11 people who remain in custody. the level of resources we have available remains the same as we take positive action so you will notice additional officers including armed officers especially at a number of events this weekend to assure the safety of everyone but it is important to remain alert and vigilant. the extra security will be posted at 1300 events over the
11:12 am
weekend including the football association rug to be final and other events. a lot of that on display at wembley stadium in london. we talked about young victims of this attack but parents were killed too including two mothers waiting for their children to leave that ariana grande concert was they released balloons in honor of those mothers. one of the daughters talked about her loss. >> for 18 hours, wondering where they were, looking at the hospital, showing pictures. friends of light offering to do it, in the building. >> reporter: the morning continues, so that the investigation. this country does remain on high alert. laura: thank you so much.
11:13 am
gregg: isis claiming responsibility for a deadly attack on coptic christians in egypt, gunmen targeting christians yesterday, killing 29 people. the victims were on their way to a monastery south of cairo. kitty logan is in london with the latest. >> reporter: there has been widespread condemnation of this attack, donald trump defined it as a merciless slaughter. these militants fired on a bar carrying coptic christians that traveled through the desert to a monastery south of cairo. witnesses described eight to ten attackers dressed in military uniforms wearing masks. we now know they were isis fighters. these gunmen fired at close range at the windows before getting on board. they shot men, some young children were also killed. some funerals have already been

gregg: the defense department identifying the army ranger
11:20 am
killed in syria yesterday. the pentagon city died of injuries sustained during a vehicle rollover. the 22-year-old soldier was from logan hill georgia, that incident happening in northeastern syria. it is under investigation, specialist murphy was assigned to the 75th ranger regiment. laura: republicans battling over preexisting conditions in the fight to overhaul obamacare. lawmakers reportedly want to include the waivers from the house bill that would allow states to opt out of the clause, higher premiums for people with preexisting conditions which according to the congressional budget office that could mean some people could see their premiums go through the roof. congressman jason lewis is a member of the house budget committee, education and workforce committee, thank you
11:21 am
for being here today. let's get to it. one of the biggest concerns is how to break down and handle preexisting conditions. many americans are very worried about how their premiums will go up especially now that the cbo released its report saying they have reason to worry. you put out an article on twincities.com outlining a list of the myths about the a hca. tell us about it. >> hhs put out a report saying under obamacare in 2013 to last year premiums more than doubled, they went up 105%. under the affordable care act we priced everyone as though they were sick. everyone had to buy on government exchanges, the most expensive plan possible. what happened is young healthy people couldn't afford it, they dropped out of the insurance pools and the insurance industry has a death spiral and humanand says we are out of obamacare exchanges next year, no one is there to subsidize anybody else.
11:22 am
by allowing the industry to price a policy that fits me best, a young and healthy person best you get more young healthy people back in the insurance pools to subsidize the sick. that is the only way to get this plan to work, the only way insurance can work. laura: you have been in this a while, what did you think of the cbo score overall? >> you have to understand this is the same outfit, they work hard but they said the affordable care act would cover 26 million people by this year. it is 10 million people. overestimated the aca underestimated us but they say premiums will be lower, 4% to 30% in states that apply for waivers no twice the product that suits the customer those premiums could drop 30% in this report, the report also says the deficit will go down $120
11:23 am
billion so contrary to the spin by the opponents one thing everybody out to remember the same people criticizing healthcare reform now are the same ones that told us obamacare would work. in minnesota premiums have gone up 55%, 60%, the state had to bail out the exchange, insurance companies dropping people off their plans. the current system is untenable. we have to have real healthcare reform and that is what we are doing. laura: with the fight over preexisting coverage a lot of americans now wonder how is all of this going to affect the real chances of getting healthcare done. how do you see it? >> the american health care act bans denials preexisting conditions. advanced denial of coverage for preexisting conditions. all it says is the industry can suit a plan best suited to the
11:24 am
customer. that means young healthy people will have lower premiums and get back to the market so without undoing these price controls and allowing the market to function you can't price everybody as though they are sick, we see what happens. if you want to cover the sickest americans, allow prices to fluctuate so young healthy people are back in the insurance pools to subsidize the old and sick. laura: how do you help people understand how the waivers work and how to affect their families? a lot of people try to wrap their head around this, to know how it will affect their children, their spouses, how do you explain? >> all the waivers do is allow the industry to pool risk and price risk. understand no one can be charged up anymore unless they stop paying their premiums. no one can be charged a dime unless they stop paying their premiums and that is the same
11:25 am
policy in 1996. laura: is this frustrating for you? how frustrating has it been? >> the misinformation is frustrating. this is real healthcare reform and what is frustrating is no one has a clue what we are going to do if we don't reform healthcare. all the critics have no plans. they are looking at the debacle in healthcare right now. it is our responsibility and the responsibility of people who are serious about governing to reform healthcare in a meaningful way and that is what we are doing. laura: we have to leave it there. great to have you on the program. gregg: the president heading home after his 9-day trip overseas, fresh concerns about his campaign's alleged ties to russia legal panel is here to weigh in on that. a train ride in oregon turns deadly come two passengers sacrificed their lives to stop that apparent hate crime. 80 percent of recurrent ischemic strokes
11:26 am
could be prevented with the right steps. and take it from me, every step counts.
11:27 am
a bayer aspirin regimen is one of those steps in helping prevent another stroke. be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen.

laura: police in oregon identifying the man accused of stabbing two people and injuring a third on a commuter train. portland police say jeremy joseph kristin attacked the passengers when they tried to
11:31 am
stop him from yelling racial slurs at two muslim women on the train. witnesses say christian was spewing hate speech and ranting against a number of religions and ethnicities before the attack. in the west coast newsroom, those details, what a terrible story. >> reporter: the victims didn't even know the suspect. two muslim women, to calm the man down. it broke out friday afternoon on a portland train. 35-year-old jeremy joseph christian was hurling hate field slurs at two muslim women one of whom was wearing a he job. and american samaritan tried to stop it but christian pulled out a knife and attacked. one victim was pronounced that on the scene. another died at the hospital. third was stabbed but is expected to survive which listens one witness described the chaos. >> i was scared, i was so scared. i knocked on the door of the
11:32 am
driver to let him know, calling for help from 911. we called 911. almost everybody called 911. >> reporter: christian fled on foot. they can't up with him a short time later and he was engaging in a verbal confrontation with the officers that was caught on camera. [bleep] >> he was taken into custody without further incident and is charged with a number of crimes including aggravated murder and double murder, intimidation in the 2nd °. felony and possession of a restricted weapon. he held without bail his investigators questioned him as to what led to the attack. to appear in court first thing on monday. laura: americans trying to do the right thing paying with it for their lives. thank you for the report. gregg: is donald trump makes his way back to washington new questions swirling about the
11:33 am
trump campaign and alleged ties to russia, senior rate and son-in-law to the president discussed a secret back channel of communication with the kremlin. that conversation reportedly took place with the russian ambassador at trump tower last year. defense attorneys and former prosecutors, can we all agree it is not a crime to talk to a russian, nor is it a crime to initiate secure communications with a foreign government including the russians? >> it is not a crime. the issue that i see is why would he propose that it be back channel data takes place -- >> it is all the time. >> they are already accused -- >> it happened in december before the administration took office. >> that goes to the point of suspicions people have. this needs to be investigative that we don't know enough to say it is a crime but it needs to be
11:34 am
investigated. >> better cooperation against the war and terrorists in syria and get aid and assistance of the russians. >> i am not buying that. >> channeled medications are not uncommon. many past presidents have done it notably john f. kennedy. it was a back channel secret communication that defused the soviet american cuban missile crisis. >> hr mcmaster said in a statement today this wasn't out of the ordinary and it is done but if i can on the timeline of this because it is important this happened in december, this was the transition period and jared kushner was designated point of contact for for an official but wanted to get in touch with the president-elect. the fact that he had any communication with the ambassador is not a problem whatsoever. gregg: let slip to something
11:35 am
else controversial. the law governing special counsel says he can only investigate crimes. crimes only. wrongdoing, sorry. crimes only. when you look at the order appointing special counsel that says investigating coordination between the russian government and the trump campaign is not a crime. there is no such crime as collusion in a political campaign. only an antitrust law for things like price-fixing. >> due to the fact there's already an investigation about the russians helping donald trump win his presidency they have to investigate. if it were not for that investigation -- >> extensive collaboration between the trump campaign and the russians, show me a statute. >> there may be a theological we don't know because why -- gregg: conveying military secret and national security, they
11:36 am
didn't have it. >> we don't know what to those conversations and taylor why he needed these conversations. it is - it doesn't sit well with me and a lot of people. gregg: is there anyone who hasn't had a conversation with the russian ambassador? that is his job, isn't it? >> apparently not. here's the point in my response to you. these investigations are secret investigations and they should be. these -- a lot of what we are hearing and the information we have to use in this analysis are from leaks is the fact is we do not know what the fbi found in their investigation. we do not know what the deputy attorney general has on his desk so the order may be a little vague. we don't know what is in the
11:37 am
investigation itself. gregg: disallows robert mueller to investigate, quote, any other matters, allows special counsel to run rampant in limitless directions which may mean this will morph into the trump comey conversations and all these allegations of obstruction of justice. the president says to the fbi director i hope you can clear michael flynn because he is a good guy doesn't amount to obstruction of justice. >> it doesn't but we have to have the separation of powers, there has to be checks and balances.wer but the fbi director needs to act independently because if a crime has taken place you can't just go by the direction of the president to say i will leave this alone. gregg: doesn't the president have the constitutional authority not only to hire and fire the fbi director but to tell him what to investigate and what not to investigate? >> he has that authority especially if the president himself is not a target and that may be the reason we saw in the
11:38 am
letter to director comey you told me three occasions i was not because it is relevant. if he is not a target communication with the director of the fbi, i guarantee other presidents have had communications. gregg: jfk and lbj forever told j edgar hoover to do this investigation and stop that investigation. goes all the way back to thomas jefferson and the trial of aaron burr. i'm getting into the weeds. i don't know where that popped out, great to see you guys. laura: president bush teaming up with an old friend to protect their common legacy. uniting a rock star and former president coming up next. hillary clinton takes aim at donald trump during a commencement speech more than

11:45 am
the department of justice. laura: those remarks happening at wellesley. joining me is fox news contributor rachel campos duffy. welcome to you. i'm very anxious to hear your reaction to all this. many described this speech as particularly aggressive for clinton, the washington post described it as remarkably aggressive anti-trump. what did you make of it? >> i hillary clinton gave a rousing speech to her base, came home to her alma mater. these are young women who are going to be the captains of industry, they will be running for office all over the country. we saw them descend on washington with their little pink hats on and decide to make it known we women who are graduating are going to make a
11:46 am
difference in this world and hillary clinton drew a parallel to this moment in time to the moment in time when she herself was a young graduate with the world before her. i think aggressive -- i would not use that word at all. powerful and certainly energetic is the word i would use to describe that speech. go grads. laura: i have had you on the program, i think i know what you thought but i want to ask what you thought. the soundbite we played, hillary clinton bring up the time in our nation's past that they were furious about a presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace. what did you make of the speech? >> she started what i would say she started the speech with a coughing fit that required them to bring her water and a lozenge. quite majestic position to how strong our president looked traveling to the middle east and
11:47 am
europe, when she hopped over to massachusetts, one state over after resting and drinking chardonnay, you presume she would be in better shape. that said she sounded resentful, sounds like she is ready for revenge which is a perfect analogy for where the democratic party is. they are not being introspective, not asking questions they need to be asking why they lost an election they should have won is why did they lose all the working-class voters in the rust belt? why did so many democrats change their ticket on a guy with no political experience and that is a problem not just for hillary but the party. that is very dramatic of where they are and why they might lose again. >> she asked people in power invent their own facts and attack those who question them saying it marks the beginning of the end of a free society.
11:48 am
that was in her speech. you think that was fair? >> absolutely. let's be real. we live in a time right now where we are seeing the playbook that everybody who has ever read orwell understands well. you repeat something over and over until it becomes a fact. you can love trump, you can hate trump but what you cannot do is invent your own alternate reality. how many people show up at an event is a measurable metric that can be seen, examined and proven. you cannot say one thing, have it disproven and go that is just our alternative fact, saying such a thing on campus was a brilliant move on her part. facts matter. facts are important. >> she said a free and open debate is the lifeblood of democracy.
11:49 am
how ironic she would say this on one of these politically correct campuses. she talked about people denying science, denying things we see with our own eyes, she was talking about trump's inauguration speech and a lot of us pro-lifers who fought against her election wonder if she would take her own advice and look at an ultrasound. this speech full of anger but it was full of disdain for the people who voted for donald trump. she's not interested in listening for a second figuring out why they didn't want her. what was missing in her campaign. laura: a speech to give at her alma mater, these women are fired up, they are not trump supporters, they are the ones who wanted clinton in office and they will take up the mantle and win an election themselves. laura: we are up against a break, thank you for being here. gregg: families of missing servicemembers may finally get
11:50 am
answers about their loved ones decades after their loss. dna technology is being used to give them closer. at panera, a salad is so much more than one thing. more than one flavor, or texture, or color. a good clean salad is so much more than green. and with panera catering, more for your event. panera. food as it should be. my dad called them up and asked for "the jennifer garner card" which is such a dad thing to do. after he gave his name the woman from capital one said "mr. garner, are you related to jennifer?" kind of joking with him. and my dad was so proud to tell her, "as a matter of fact, she is my middle daughter". so now dad has the venture card, he's earning his double miles, and he made a friend at the company. can i say it? go ahead!

11:55 am
he didn't say where he was going. he just said to him i think you know where i am going. >> reporter: the 19-year-old army corporal is one of 82,000 americans lost at war and never found. it is not officially. the us government has collected thousands of unidentified remains from battlefields all over the world. alfred's daughter wonders if her uncle is among them so she and heard that are committing dna to the defense department hoping for a match. >> my dad is 88. i would love to give him a final closure answer. >> dna testing done on dover airbase in delaware is identifying remains which scientists could not a decade ago.>> we tested everything fro tooth to a rib whether it happened yesterday or 60 years ago that pain is always there but from a science point of view, looking at and being dedicated is to never lose hope. >> so far the program has put a
11:56 am
name to the remains of 1200 servicemembers thanks to their family members's dna. a positive match with end decades of limbo. >> 67 years later, he may never have a final answer. maybe someday in heaven he will. gregg: dover air force base holds 7.7 million blood samples of every active duty and reservists member ensuring there will never be an unknown again. gregg: hope he continues to help those families. >> donald trump wrapping up his tour of the middle east and europe today, his message to us troops on the war on terror right ahead. by a heart valve problem. but no matter what path i take, i go for my best. so if there's something better than warfarin, i'll go for that too. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin,
11:57 am
plus had less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... ...and it may take longer than usual for any 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.
