tv   The Story With Martha Mac Callum  FOX News  June 1, 2017 4:00pm-5:01pm PDT

4:00 pm
>> bret: covfefe, fair and balanced and unafraid, the story starts right now. >> breaking tonight, president trump says we are out and the outrage comes pouring in, this is the story, i'm a sandra smith in for martha maccallum this evening. the president's words labeled as a defining address of his presidency, fulfilling a campaign promise and announcing his intention to pull the united states out of the international paris claimant accords. adil says it will stifle american industry, kill jobs, and put americans at a global disadvantage, watch. >> president trump: that paris claimant accord is simply the latest example of washington entering into an agreement that disadvantages the united states.
4:01 pm
to the exclusive benefit of other countries. the rest of the world applauded when we signed the paris agreement. they went wild, they were so happy. a cynic would say the obvious reasons for economic competitiveness and their wish to see us remain in the agreement as so we continue to suffer self-inflicted major economic wounds. i was elected to represent the citizens of pittsburgh, not paris. >> sandra: immediate reaction was swift, harsh and at times appears to be apocalyptic. >> this was full, nationalist, america first, the rest of the world. >> it was profoundly bad, he portrayed a very dark vision for the future of the country.
4:02 pm
>> this is the day that the united states resigned as the leader of the free world it's nothing short of that. >> sandra: there were many others like that, one wonders why the president's decision is prompting a shock and surprise when it does exactly what he said he do on the campaign trai trail. >> president trump: we are to cancel the paris claimant climae agreement, and stop all payments of united states tax dollars to u.n. global warming programs. >> sandra: joining me now, served as chief speechwriter to president george w. bush, and juan williams as cohost of "the five" and a fox news political analyst. it trump no to this agreement, you say what pretty >> i'm so interested in the way that you put it, he also said that he was going to repeal and
4:03 pm
replace obamacare, get rid of nafta as you recall, he said a lot of things. i think the reality hit home today and i think that's why you see the strong reaction that we're getting from the liberal front. i don't necessarily think it's all liberals but you had a statement for president obama, you had statements from the mayor of pittsburgh all saying that they feel the president has stepped back as a leader. >> sandra: we heard that from many on the left, we heard that from many in the media as we just showed up. can you explain this outrage and the shock that we're seeing it considering the president promised this on the campaign trail multiple times? >> i served in the bush administration when george w. bush withdrew from the kyoto treaty, this is kind of like groundhog day. all the same outraged and all the same productions of apocalypse in the world is coming to an end in all the rest of it. you know what happened when he pulled out the kyoto treaty?
4:04 pm
in the next 14 years, we reduced our omissions by 18%. we reduced our missions faster than the european countries that are now criticizing a donald trump. our admissions are at 1992 levels. it's not because of a treaty, it's not because of a piece of parchment signed in paris in kyoto, it's because of the free market economy, innovation, and technology. it's hydraulic fracturing, that is going to continue regardless of this paris agreement. we did it while keeping our energy prices half of those in europe. we reduced our missions faster than europe and our energy prices are half of the european union average, one-third of during germany whs increasing emissions under the amazing rate, were doing better than all the people who are criticizing donald trump today. >> sandra: wilbur ross was on fox news a little bit ago, he said the president is not against an agreement, this isn't
4:05 pm
about the science, this is about the economics of this deal, he called it a transfer of wealth as market just detailed, we are way ahead of what these other countries are doing as far as limiting those co2 emissions, were being asked to do a lot more than others. look at the 2030 deadline for china. >> i think the key points to be made here from the other side of the conversation is go ask g.e., go ask michelle, go ask exxonmobil. go ask rex teller's in the secretary of state, go ask ivanka trump. these people all say this is not good for american industry, not good for american jobs. it puts us as a disadvantage, it allows the chinese and europeans to take the initiative. >> sandra: they were absent from the rose garden and i'll give this to you, we were told that she was not president
4:06 pm
stomach present because of a jewish holiday. rex tiller's and who did save you should have a seat of the table because of this, he was in favor of staying in. what does this say about possible division within this white house on this decision? >> it means conservatives one which is great, that's a good thing for our country. this agreement would have cost the united states $3 trillion in lost gdp, 6.5 million industrial jobs. you know what it would've done to the global temperatures? it would have reduced global temperatures by 0.17 degrees. the it would've changed global temperatures in 85 years. not 1.7 degrees, 0.17 degrees. if i want to your house and reduced your thermostat by .17 degrees, you wouldn't even notice, is that worth $3 trillion and a 6.5 million jobs? i don't think so. >> let me reply very quickly, i think that's not the issue, the issue is that it would stop the
4:07 pm
increase in terms of global climate. >> it would have an effect of -- >> it would stop the increase. >> sandra: clearly the temperature here is very hard, this is what we are seeing in the media in general, i want to get your take. on some of the headlines that are out there, "the huffington post" right now, trump destroys planets. >> i think that what you are seeing is, he's withdrawing from concern about rising temperatures. when we look at the polls, most americans think that as a result of climate change increasing co2 gas, they're going to see erosion of our beaches, our coastlines.
4:08 pm
the >> sandra: you're making a point about the science, not about the deal. he's against the deal. >> if you think you're the art of the deal guy, were not recovered okay shooting with yo you. >> who cares, our co2 emissions are declining. >> why can't we be the leader? >> sandra: we are, by the way. president trump made clear toda today, a specific group was top of mind when he made this dish and come miners. >> president trump: it doesn't eliminate coal jobs, it's just transfers those jobs out of america and the united states. this agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries gaining a advantage over the united states. if >> sandra: the very point of anti-climate change efforts bringing on job loss became a sticking point for
4:09 pm
hillary clinton throughout 2016, like when this out of work coalminer asked why clinton wanted him unemployed? >> i just want to know how you can say were going to put a lot of coal miners out of jobs and then come in here and tell us how you're going to be our friend? because those people out there there... >> sandra: i'm sure you all remember about that, the menu just saw in that clip, former coalminer bo copley. nice to see you. >> thanks for having me it's a pleasure to be on the show again. a >> sandra: what goes through your mind about that moment that had so much, had such a big impact in in the 2016 election? >> obviously it meant a great deal to me and my family, regardless of what people may think of hillary clinton at the time, she was considered one of the most powerful people in the world. to have an opportunity as a common everyday person to sit down and voice your concerns with someone like that is a
4:10 pm
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that has obviously changed my life and my families lives. since then. >> sandra: fast-forward to today, president trump announcing in the rose garden just a few hours ago that we are pulling out of this paris climate agreements, something that you had been urging to roll back at those obama environmental regulations. is this the president following through on his campaign promises? >> to us, i believe that it is. i think it speaks volumes to the length that he's willing to go to try to hold up to his promises on the campaign trail. these kind of deals worldwide would be devastating to west virginia and its economy and coal miners in general. for him to say were going to back out and possibly renegotiate would benefit us
4:11 pm
better in the long run, i think it speaks volumes to the links that he's willing to go to stand up for people like me and people like west virginia who voted for him. >> sandra: will this improve things in your state and in your community and your economy? >> we certainly hope so, any kind of sanction that's been put on coal mining and the regulations that have been put in place under the previous administration to -- what we feel is to squash out coal, anything that can be lifted to help put our people back to work we view as a good thing. obviously this looks back something to us that's going to benefit the coal industry greatly. a spoon all of this has inspired you to run for office, you're going to be running for the senate in 2018. when you look at president trump, how would you rate his performance so far as someone who has supported him from the beginning? >> i would give him a b. i always want to leave room for improvement, i think some of the
4:12 pm
situations he's been in, i think he could handle with a little more tact than what he does, but i don't think he would be donald trump if he didn't handle them the way he's been handling them. i always want to leave room for improvement and to be able to say he can do a little bit better job. a >> sandra: our best to your family, a lot of people don't realize and that exchange, you have a picture of your entire family over to her. this is about my family, my hope is in god, that's my future. we wish you the best of luck, we understand it you are still out of work and hopefully the environment improves for you. bo copley, thanks for having us. >> sandra: the family farm is banned from a local farmers' markets because they won't host a same-sex marriage on their property. the owner and his lawyer are here exclusively on what might be the next big religious freedom fight in this country. the house intelligence committee is one step closer to getting their hands on information about key obama figures.

>> sandra: just 24 hours after blaming everything and everyone for her loss but herself, hillary clinton is at it again tonight, speaking just a few moments ago in new york and suggesting once again, there were forces outside her control responsible for her defeat. >> the more you dig and the more you understand what we were up against, and taking me out of the equation so it's not about what happened to you, it's what happened to us? how much more alert we need to be as a nation and obviously i'm particularly concerned about the role that russia played. whatever political party or philosophy you have, you can't be all right with the idea that a foreign adversary was trying
4:18 pm
to influence the outcome of our election. >> sandra: that speech coming on the heels of a talk she did yesterday where she seemingly blamed everyone but herself for the election loss. for more, we turn to ed henry in washington and more tonight. >> it's gotten so bad that former trump campaign spokesman jason miller joked raise your hand if hillary clinton has not yet blamed you for her loss. she had another one of these forms where she initially said i take responsibility for the loss but then did anything but. we've added it up, we've made this special graphic for you, about 40 different excuses she has come up with and what we call the clinton flame gamma starting with the fbi and james comey to the russians, even netflix somehow. the very democrats who were crying on election night after pouring their hearts and souls into the campaign are irate because she has inexplicably
4:19 pm
decided to shift some of that blame game to the democratic national committee. even though the dnc had actually worked to help her defeat bernie sanders much to his chagrin, watch. >> i inherit nothing from the democratic party. >> what you mean nothing? >> it was bankrupt, it was on the verge of insolvency, it's data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong. i had to inject money into it. >> dnc officials were heading back hard at saying they were out of money because former president barack obama starved them, focusing instead on his own political organization ahead of that dnc's data operation, this was bleeping b.s., clinton ignored their data show in michigan, pennsylvania and wisconsin were very close because the campaign thought they knew better. those tweets were later deleted,
4:20 pm
another top democrat told me we didn't tell her to hide her pneumonia, we can suggest she call trump space a basket of deplorable's, we didn't teach her how to be tone-deaf. even clinton's former spokesman said her comments were at least authentic said he would not pylon against the dnc. >> sandra: richard fowler nationally syndicated radio talk show host, that list of people and things and agencies that hillary clinton is blooming for her election loss, it's long. >> you've got to give her credits because she is pretty creative of coming up with these excuses. there's 40 now that she has come up with. it's arrogance which is why she was rejected by her own party in 2008 and a democratic primary,
4:21 pm
again with general election voters in 2016. if you have to remember it she had everything at her disposal. the dnc rigged the primary in her favor, she out spent donald trump by twice as much. if there were reports heading into election day a month before that she had five times the amount of the staff as trump di did, she had everything at her disposable and still managed to lose. >> sandra: brian fallon, the press secretary for her 2016 presidential campaign won't even pack her up on her slamming of the dnc and its data operation as nonexistent and bankrupt as you just heard. the he said i'm not going to join in that. >> i just wanted all to end, fast. >> sandra: is not helping your party, is it? >> no, i like hillary clinton, like the next democrat i voted for her and i regret the fact that donald trump is in the white house. with all that being said, she's
4:22 pm
got to remain quiet and i think she should take more walks in the woods in chappaqua and a stay away from interviews like this. it only continues to divide our party. whatever party needs to be focused on now is having a conversation with our voters, figuring out what they need and coming up with a solution oriented plan to make sure that we deal with that. we need our contract for america and were spending more time talking about hillary clinton and how she lost the election. if here's the facts, she lost. if >> sandra: for all the problems democrats say republicans have right now with a trump administration and the division they say is there for in the republican party, it doesn't appear that they have a united front particularly when we hear words like this come out of hillary clinton's mouth. >> if they are in disarray, and they are in search of a message. the democratic party has been rejected by historic margins over the past eight years under president obama, it doesn't matter if it was out of -- all of these candidates who were rejected under these eight
4:23 pm
years. i think the party needs to figure out what its direction is pretty as someone who has worked on campaigns, i find her remarks offensive. how rude is it is to blame the people who worked countless hours trying to get her elected? maybe she should have visited wisconsin once, maybe shoot should have spent more money in wisconsin and michigan in the final weeks heading into the campaigns then she did pursuing one electoral college vote in omaha, nebraska, . it's so arrogant. >> sandra: to be sure, she has said on the record, she takes personal responsibility for her election loss, but let me ask you as somebody who comes on here representing the democratic party -- why did she lose the election, what is your message on that? >> i think there's some truth to what she's saying here because i think we spent way too much money in arizona try to get those electoral votes when we should've been firming up our boats in pennsylvania and wisconsin and michigan. i've worked a number of campaigns, a couple of presidential, i've got to tell
4:24 pm
you, what you need more than ever as a message that connects people, a message that urges them to go to the polls. >> sandra: you're not telling me what it is. >> hillary clinton didn't have that, our message has got to be we are for everybody, we are an inclusive party that we need to maintain for the future generation, were a party about everybody coming together. raising the minimum wage for working families, were a party about making sure the public education system works for not just the chosen few but everybody, that's a message that should be talking about, sadly it's getting clouded by hillary clinton pointing her loss. she runs her campaign, she lost his election. >> sandra: president trump has weighed in on this last night in reaction to her blaming her own party, he tweeted she is a terrible candidate. >> for the benefit of the democrats, she should stop
4:25 pm
tweeting. >> sandra: police now investigating a sickening hate crime involving racial slurs painted across the homes of one of the world's greatest athletes, the emotional reaction of that legendary sports figure coming up. three government agencies under subpoena tonight to probe donald trump. are some of the media brushing it all off as a distraction. will show you next. >> it's not about look at what they did dispirited .

>> sandra: new fallout from the bombshell subpoenas issued by the house intelligence committee. served to the fbi, cia, and nsa seek information on three key obama era figures and their roles on unmasking classified information related to the trump campaign, it conceals officials brought before congress. yet the left and some in the media insist this is nothing more than a distraction. >> i think they're part of the white house desire to shift attention away from the probe and onto the issue of unmasking. >> the white house clearly wants to make hay out of this idea that the obama administration may have done something wrong here. >> this is the problem with the political inquiry, politics will
4:30 pm
be played. >> first of all, the flexion. it is not us, let's look at what they did, the obama administration. the leaks, the unmasking. >> sandra: fox news chief intelligence correspondent catherine harrison. >> more follow-up tonight, the former national security advisor susan rice was at the center of the benghazi scandal, former cia director john brennan as well as u.n. ambassador samantha power. they may have sought the identification of the trump campaign team encoded in intelligence reports for political rather than national security reasons pretty good congressional source says democrats were not blindsided but were told in advance that subpoenas for the cia, fbi, and national security agency were ruling out. significant buzz in washington here tonight about fbi chief james comey telling his side of the story to a congressional panel one week from today. at issue, he will say he try to
4:31 pm
get him to drop the investigation. the wild card is whether the trump white house takes the unusual step of invoking executive privilege to block testimony about their conversations. they may be in a weak position because he's been so public about the russia case from his tweets to his termination letter for comey where the president cited their private discussions. >> i think having a president weigh in on a blow-by-blow every time there's a decision, it is certainly an unusual way to handle it from an attorney's perspective. i suspect there's a little bit of indigestion on his legal team about this approach. >> sandra: tonight at the expectation is there will be more relevant congressional testimony about russia, it will focus on intelligence collection and whether lines were crossed by the obama administration last fall.
4:32 pm
>> sandra: katherine harris, thank you. joining us now, david baci and moet lacey, former dnc spokesman, he is also a fox news contributor. i'll start with you first, three subpoenas issued, is this a good step? >> it certainly is, i'm very happy that chairman nunez has taken this very good step for the american people to find out exactly what crimes were committed under the obama administration during the unmasking of these people. i think the american people deserve some answers and these are the only crimes that we know of even of the democrats only want to talk about russia, russia, russia. >> sandra: the democrats in the media they are calling this a distraction. why not here with these people have to say? >> sure, hear what they have to say. i think the way this is playing out is a little concerning to some democrats. if you look at the way the senate has been doing everythin everything, it has been incredibly bipartisan, democrats and republicans on the committee
4:33 pm
working together. he sent these subpoenas out without even talking to democrats on the committee, it's hard to make an argument that this isn't a political move if you're acting all by yourself. he's already had to recuse himself for his improprieties. >> sandra: i think that change, they did get a heads up on tuesday. do you think chairman nunez overstepped his bounds? >> absolutely not. he said he was going to recuse himself from the russia investigation, this is nothing to do with the russian investigation. he is the chairman of the committee, he is an active chairman, he told the democrats that was misinformation that was reported earlier today that the democrats didn't know. chairman nunez clearly told them of. this is an important step for the american people to get to the bottom of the unmasking. this is very troubling for the trump campaign obviously because these are people, their names
4:34 pm
were released. political actions by the cia director or these ambassadors, whatever they were doing, very untoward. >> sandra: it does appear that the story continues to be unmasking for democrats it's collusion, i want to get to what chairman nunez tweeted today. it sang a lot of fake news for media elites and others who have no interest in violations of americans have a spy unmasking. you heard an anchor a few minutes ago, the white house wants to make a over this? what about what's going on on the other side of the aisle? >> looked, there are two issues here that people are talking about. there is whether or not trump campaign officials or trump associates -- what the relationships were with the russians. that is a legitimate
4:35 pm
investigation in everyone's mind except for the president. the second is this unmasking issue which is a pretty standard intelligence tool that is used by democratic and republican administrations alike. you can talk about the leaking. not the unmasking of. >> one has facts around it which is the unmasking, there are facts that crimes were committe committed. the other is all hearsay. >> what crimes? >> the crimes of the unmasking these individuals, releasing their names >> those are different things. >> sandra: let me inject into the conversation with the president is saying, let me bring this in, president trump tweeted this this morning, the big story is the unmasking of surveillance of people that took place during the obama administration. this is the thing that the
4:36 pm
president is going to continue on, is that a good idea? >> it certainly is. it's certainly an issue the president can talk about and make the american people understand what the obama administration was up to and whether or not president obama new and whether or not hillary clinton knew. >> sandra: thanks to both of you, good to see you. straight ahead, the shocking video released from tiger woods dui arrest, whether this will do a lesson in damage to his career than his back injury. if religious freedom battle brewing in michigan where farmer is suing after being banned from a local farmers' market because of their christian beliefs. the farm's owner and his attorney join us, next. >> never before what i have ever thought that the faith that we have in our family and our home, at our farm would prohibit us from being allowed to participate in the community

>> sandra: a family farm in michigan finds itself at the center of a battle over religious freedom, country mill farms was band from a local farmers' market following its refusal to hold same-sex weddings, now the farmer is fighting back in court. trace gallagher is live with all the details. >> steve tennyson and his family own country mill farms they've been selling apples, blueberries and a sweetcorn at the east lansing farmers' market for seven years, they also host weddings on their property. last august, he got the facebook inquiry asking if he would consider hosting a same-sex marriage and he replied because of his strong religious beliefs, he would refer them to neighboring farms. one east lansing at city officials found out about the post, they recommended that he not attend that weekends farmers' market because there might be protests. he showed up anyway, sold produce and there were no protesters. when country mill farm applied
4:42 pm
for a 2017 permit to sell at the market, the city had amended its civil rights ordinance and based on that, country mills 2017 apartment was denied, so decided to fight back, listen. >> it's about our freedom, we have children, we want them to have the same freedom to be able to not only grow and sell their produce to people of all backgrounds and beliefs but to do it in accordance with their faith. >> the conservative group alliance defending freedom has filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of country mill farms alleging their rights were violated. the family pointed out they serve and employ members of the lgbt community and the farm where they host weddings is 22 miles outside of east lansing. if the city says the location is irrelevant. >> if the same thing were held where they were excluding people because of their race or religion from purchasing product
4:43 pm
at their facility in another city, and then wanted to sell at our farmers' market but were not discriminating here, that to us is unacceptable. >> the lawsuit against the city says the changes to the farmers' market policies were targeted specifically at steve tennis and his family. >> sandra: joining me now is steve tennis, owner and operator of country mill farms. if can you start out by telling us what happened first, why was your family band -- your farm i should say banned from selling at the farmers' market? >> as you said, it started in august 2016 when we responded to that inquiry about our beliefs and we stated honestly, the catholic teaching on marriage between a man and woman -- >> sandra: that inquiry, it was a basic inquiry by anyone? by somebody you didn't know on your facebook page? >> it was by somebody we didn't
4:44 pm
know, it was in response to an event that happened two years prior, almost three years ago where a couple had asked us if we would perform in our backyard at our home, participate in the same-sex ceremony. at that time, we refer to them to a neighboring orchard, and we left that conversation civilly -- again, the person who asked the question on facebook, we responded on facebook and that's when immediately the city of east lansing officials wanted us, pressured us to not come back to the farmers' market that very weekend. ultimately, they developed this new policy specifically to bar our farm. >> sandra: you're representing this family farm, what is the case that they have? >> it's a violation of their constitutional rights of the city government to force them to
4:45 pm
give up their ability to make a livelihood and give up their religious beliefs if they don't agree with what the city says. what's important here as they serve everyone, it's the city of east lansing that is engaging in discrimination and telling them that they can't serve everyone farmers' market. >> sandra: can you tell me what's at stake here, you're saying you're fighting for your family's religious freedoms. what is it it economically for you as well, you have since stopped performing weddings in general on your property. >> in december of last year when we realize the city of east lansing wasn't satisfied that we had temporarily stopped booking future weddings, we ended up, we are continuing to practice our faith, we are hosting a wedding ceremony in our backyard at our home orchard. that's based off our faith, it's our faith that inspired my wife and i to lovingly serve all the people at our farm, and the
4:46 pm

house, it is heinous. lebron james is a national treasure. he is playing tonight in his eighth nba finals which will start in just a couple of hours. it's inexplicable how something like this can happen and i agree with what he just said, we have a long way to go here. the money doesn't matter, the adulation, fame, none of that seems to matter because if you're in those shoes, i'm not african-american so i'm not in those she was. but he has earned the benefit of the doubt. if he says it and feels it, i truly believe it. i >> sandra: hate he says his family is safe and that's the most important thing. knowing him, how do you think he is handling this all internally, especially before he's off to play in this big game? >> it's all wrong on all levels that he has to address this on the eve of the nba finals that this is where any focus or any
