8:00 am
they did or did not discuss or accomplish or did not accomplis accomplish. stay here on fox news and when it happens, we'll you know. >> leland: a good couple of days. >> shannon: "happening now" starts now. >> jon: we start with a fox news alert of president trump and the middle of a very busy and potentially historic day for his administration in the nation. we are waiting for his first-ever face-to-face with president leonard boudin. >> molly: the parent shaking hands with the first time at the g20 summit followed by a longer exchange which included secretary of state rex tillerson. it is a critical moment in america-russia relations. we are waiting to see how resident trump addresses many burning issues. let's go live to john roberts
8:01 am
and hamburg. >> history made today when president trump sat down for the first time with the leader of russia. clearly any time the russian president meets with the american president, it is a landmark event, but more so, given the international and domestic issues that are swirling around russian president vladimir putin, what's going on in ukraine and syria in the russian meddling in the u.s. election. the two have talked several times over the telephone, but face-to-face is always different in terms of setting the tone for the relationship going forward and president trump has come out of several bilateral meetings saying we had very good talks and looking at what happened with president xi and mar-a-lago, they established a friendship. we don't know if that will happen this time around or if it's appropriate for president trump to have a
8:02 am
friendship with vladimir putin, but the president did sound optimistic as they were sitting down. listen here. >> president putin and i have been discussing various things and i think it's going very well. we've had some very, very good talks. we are having talks now and we will continue. a lot of positive things are coming out for everybody concerned. it's an honor to be with you. thank you. >> for his part of n putin appeared to be a little more subdued then we have seen him in previous meetings with u.s. presidents. he had both elbows on the arms of the chair, slumping just a little bit, not particularly an aggressive posture. what goes on behind closed doors can be completely different than what goes on in the public setting and there is no question that plan report will be absolutely ready to meet with president trump and secretary taylor sin.
8:03 am
putin is sounding somewhat optimistic saying through a translator, your excellency mr. president, we spoke with the phone with you several times before on very important bilateral and international issues. a phone conversation is never enough, we want to have positive developments and be able to resolve most acute international problems, definitely we need personal meetings and i'm delighted to meet you personally, mr. president. i hope come as you have said, our meeting will yield positive results. it is possible, molly, for something to come of this. they could reach an agreement on syria and terms of deconflict in channels of the united states, there could be an agreement on north korea. it's interesting that while this is the president's first to sit down with vladimir putin, the secretary state also in the room knows him very well. rex tillerson is used to dealing with vladimir putin, so he's a valuable asset to have of the president's side.
8:04 am
putin can be somewhat different than he initially repairs. i was at that summit in 2001 in slovenia between president george w. bush and putin where bush famously said, i looked into his eyes and i saw his sou soul. i think of president bush had a do over, he would probably take it. president trump going into this, knowing what a slippery character putin can be and we can only hope for the sake of the nation that he went in with his wise wide open. >> molly: we're looking forward to readouts from this meeting. thank you, john roberts following all of the geopolitical universe today. we appreciate it. >> jon: who has the most to gain from today's first to sit down between the two leaders? or the most to lose for that matter? the handshake, apparently quite cordial seen around the world as presidents trump and putin meet for the first time. there's plenty on the agenda for these two leaders to discuss with mr. trump calling russia out on several issues during his
8:05 am
appearance in poland yesterday. >> we urge russia to cease its destabilizing activities in ukraine and elsewhere and its support for hostile regimes, including syria and iran. and to instead join the community of responsible nations in our fight against common enemies and a defense of civilization itself. >> jon: let's bring in glenn hall, u.s. news editor for "the wall street journal" ." the russians annexed crimea, they are making mischief in the ukraine to this day. they are believed to have shot on that malaysian airliner, all kinds of things that president trump could press his russian counterpart on, but if they don't come away with some big agreement on some score, whether might the russians look like
8:06 am
they won here? >> if you think about back in time when reagan had his first meeting with gorbachev, that was a two day summit and they still didn't accomplish very much. it was a ground setting meeting and i think that's more of what we are getting here. they may touch on these issues and start to feel each other out and terms of how they're going to negotiate them, but it's hard to say that we are going to have a big decree today. >> jon: kind of interesting because it supposed to be a sideline meeting to the g20 summit, but it's overshadowing the summit, really in terms of the news coverage. >> and a lot of ways, yes. you're talking about the two biggest superpowers, so does make sense that how they are navigating the relationship is going to be a global topic. >> jon: it's been said that if they don't come to some big agreement on syria or something, whatever, that president putin can go back home to the russians, where he is a master at manipulating the press and planting stories -- story lines
8:07 am
that he likes, and he can say president trump is weak, he is hamstrung by investigations at home and internal politics and therefore, we couldn't do much. >> the flip side for president trump is also that there may be criticism of him if they come back with some agreement on some of those topics, but he doesn't raise the issue of russian involvement in the u.s. election because that's what so many congressmen in the media are focused on right now. >> jon: people in this country want to see him be tough with putin on the very issue. >> yes come on that issue and all of the others. these are a lot of big important issues to tackle. all of these other things where we are talking about major global conflict, there's a lot to address, but so much emphasis on that one topic, it's hard to see what will come out. >> jon: the president said we have a lot of issues to discuss and that initial on camera sit down, but again, we don't know what's going to come out of it and we don't know whether they will be essentially any progress in some very thorny areas.
8:08 am
>> going into this, we were unable to get a good read from anyone in the white house and what was on trump's agenda. >> jon: the russians didn't like that. they wanted an agenda for this meeting. >> two very different types of leaders. mr. put likes to prepare and be ready for an agenda, mr. trump is more freewheeling and that may also play to his advantage in this relationship. >> jon: when all is said and done, each guest to size up the other and perhaps this may be the prelude to bigger meetings, bigger psalmist on the road? speak out that is typically when you should expect. that's what worked with reagan, obama, and others. there is a scene setting and a relationship setting and then you can get back to you is serious business on the road. >> jon: glenn hall, wall street journal, it's going to be a fascinating day. will be reading your stuff. >> molly: this just then, republican leadership admitting for the first time that they may not be able to fulfill their campaign promise to repeal and replace obamacare.
8:09 am
they may have to settle for -- >> it's been messy, it's been bumpy. i am not certain he will get it done, i hope we will, i believe we will. >> molly: very interesting development. garrett tenney joins us with more. >> senate leadership has him working over the holiday weekend to see what change they can make to the current health care bill and to see if those changes will be enough to get at least 50 republicans to support it, but with a growing list of g.o.p. lawmakers who say they can't support the bill in its current form, senate majority leader mitch mcconnell now admits they may not be able to repeal and replace obamacare and could be forced to simply fix parts of the law. in southern kentucky yesterday, the associated press reported that if mcconnell met bipartisan cooperation to fix obamacare.
quote
8:10 am
he answered of my site is unable to agree on an adequate replacement, then some type of action with regard to the private health insurance market must occur. no action is not an alternative. the republicans would be limited in the fixes they could make to obamacare because that could not be done using sequestration, meaning any vote would need 60 votes to pass and it would force republicans to work with democrats and that's the result democrats have been hoping for a long period any statement, senate minority leader chuck schumer said it's encouraging that senator mcconnell today acknowledged that the issues with the exchanges are fixable and open the door to bipartisan solutions to improve our health care system. as we've said time and time again, democrats are eager to work with republicans to stabilize the market and improve the law. right now, senate leadership still plans to introduce a revised version of the g.o.p. health care bill sometime next week and their hope is at the possibility of republicans not actually repealing and replacing obamacare will help to bring some senators to the table.
8:11 am
>> molly: it will be fascinating to see the political fallout from this one and to hear the constituents as to what they think. garrett tenney from washington, thank you. >> jon: the trial of 1 of 3 men accused of rating and killing 19-year-old holly bobo back in 2011, the trial is postponed now. details of the newly discovered evidence next. plus, with hurricane season in full swing, we take a look back at the deadliest natural disaster in u.s. history. and a high-stakes meeting today between president trump and vladimir putin, why are guest says it is the most important 3s entire trip. help people find their way. fastsigns designed new directional signage. and got them back on track. get started at fastsigns.com.
8:12 am
8:13 am
8:14 am
>> jon: new information on some crime stories we are watching. a georgia woman accused of killing four of her young children and their father smiled and gave a thumbs up to reporters at her first court hearing today, posing for the
8:15 am
cameras. she told the judge she doesn't want a lawyer saying her attorney is that people in her faith. police say she called 911 after fatally stabbing her family. authorities say convicted kidnapper has been captured in texas two days after escaping a south carolina prison. in his his second escape. he's a serving life in prison on kidnapping charges. in tennessee, the trial of one of the men accused of killing holly bobo in 2011 has been postponed now due to newly discovered evidence. investigators reportedly found a gun under water near the home of zach adams, one of the accused and the defense team wants extra time to have it analyzed. adam's trial is set to begin now in september. >> molly: we are waiting for president trump and russian president vladimir putin to wrap up their historic meeting. the first time a sitting american president has set him
8:16 am
with a russian leader and two years. the two have a lot to discuss and a short amount of time. my guest says as it while may be historic, it is also dangerous. he is an expert on russia and ukraine. peter, thanks for joining us. here we are, this intimate meeting is underway right now, these two presidents, president putin, president trump, two strong personalities and their diplomatic counterparts as well as to translators, just 35 minutes long. some of that time will be lost to translation back and forth. seems like a short amount of time to get a lot of information and, how higher the stakes? >> is a short time, but all the most important time of the president's trip in europe. first meetings between any u.s. and russian president are always historic, but they are also where the mistakes can happen. bush and obama both terribly miss read putin at their first meeting, khrushchev misread
8:17 am
kennedy. they're also incredibly risky. what's happening right now is that both world leaders are taking the measure of each other. we'll see what comes from that meeting. >> molly: we don't have a lot of insight into exec and what will be discussed. the president speaking before going behind closed doors assaying various was the way he phrased it. they had a lot of ground to cover, potentially syria being among the most important topics. what do you think we'll see in the readouts following, various interpretations of how things went? >> context is key here. let's not forget that the president inherited an upside down relationship with russia because he inherited what occurred in the previous administration. ed was president obama who sent to the secret letter to the kremlin who started the failed reset and it created the conditions that have turned u.s.-russian relationships upside down. the big goal here for the president is to turn them right side up. at begins with this first
8:18 am
meeting. certainly, 35 minutes is not a lot of time, but let's not forget the president has thrown down the gauntlet on north korea, on isis, and on finding a solution to the ongoing conflict and ukraine. 35 minutes is not a long time, but this is the first of what should be several interactions to help turn that relationship right side up. >> molly: there are some serious topics to discuss. one of the things that's overshadowing this meeting is that russian interference in the u.s. elections and the political pressure that the president may be feeling too at very least bring it up and mention it. what could that mean for these talks? >> i think the president was pretty clear on how he assesses the geostrategic situation. he let us know during his public statements yesterday and warsaw, speeches that were very well received. 35 minutes is a very short time in which to have a meeting. i don't have a lot of expectations for major breakthroughs. right now, we've seen the handshake seen around the world and that is a first start and
8:19 am
both sides can hope that we find a positive outcome. as i said, turning this upside down relationship with russia right side up. it will be really up to putin as to how he wants to make their next move. >> molly: the handshake did seem fairly warm to kick things off, where is the common ground? both sides of like to come out of this saying there was some sort of victory, i would think. >> that's true, but it's also important to remember that victory does not necessarily mean normalization. at the end of the day, there is a long, hard path that the russians and united states have ahead of them. the conditions are bad right now. we have an ongoing conflict in ukraine, we have questions over isis and assad's future and syria. there is a lot of work that needs to be done and at the end of the day, a handshake does not mean normalization. normalization and relations come
8:20 am
at the end of a long process, not at the beginning. >> molly: it will be fascinating to see these readouts later today. peter durrant, thank you. >> jon: eyed instruments aboard a delta flight forces a quick return to the seattle airport last night. what witnesses say happened and first class and why the fbi is getting involved. plus, president trump slamming the mainstream media even while he is overseas for the g20 summit, we'll take it up with our media panel straight ahead. >> they have been thanking us for a long time, they've been covering me in a very dishonest way.
8:21 am
8:22 am
8:23 am
>> molly: a delta air lines flight for us to return to seattle's airport after a
8:24 am
disturbance on board. plane was bound for beijing last night when a 23-year-old first class passenger assaulted a flight attendant. other passengers helping to restrain that man. flight attendants and other passengers were hurt and taken to the hospital. the fbi says the men will be at federal court today, but does not appear to be a threat to national security. the flight to beijing took off once again late last night. >> jon: president trump not letting up on his criticism of the mainstream media while he's overseas for the g20 summit. the president, just this morning tweeting i will represent our country well and fight for its interests. fake news media will never cover me accurately, but who cares? will make america great again. mr. trump also taking a dig at what he calls fake news at a news conference with poland's president. speak out what we want to see in the united states is honest, beautiful, free, but honest press. we want to see free press. i think it's a very important thing.
8:25 am
we don't want fake news. by the way, not everybody is fake news. but we don't want fake news. it's a bad thing, very bad for our country. >> jon: let's bring in judith miller, joe concha joins us as well. obviously, there's a lot of attention focused on this trip overseas and when the president took on so-called fake media, he got a lot of heat from his critics and this country, was appropriate? >> of course it was because he was asked a question by a reporter. what you think would happen with cnn the day before which was obviously cnn's threat to unmask an anonymous reddit user? he dove into that and that's what happens. he's a transparent person, but here's the thing. just hours after that, the editor at large over at cnn tweeted out a video that showed two seconds of a handshake that appeared to show the polish first lady blowing off donald trump and going right to
8:26 am
melania trump. if you want for seconds later, the handshake actually happens. a fake meaning is sent out by a political reporter at cnn and sure enough, he called cnn a couple hours before that and cnn took the bait and sent out that sort of video that is a very bad thing for the metrics. the editors resigning. right now, that was a very bad thing for cnn and i was a well-timed criticism by donald trump. >> jon: he kept saying, oh, my a tweet like a 12-year-old at a beaver concert. that's a thing. you are a guy in your 40s, act like it. >> jon: let's talk what the president attacking fake news. >> the president of the united states is our commander in chief. he did not have to stand there
8:27 am
and attack not only the media, which of course he always does, but i think we all are used to it by this point. also, he raised questions about the veracity and the credibility of the american intelligence agencies. i was much more concerned about that than i was the repetition. the fact that before a meeting with vladimir putin, the president of the united states raises questions about their competence, about their finding that the russians definitely tried to interfere in our election process, that does not serve the country well, it doesn't serve the intelligence community well, it's not fair to them, and it's on presidential. >> jon: interesting too, the russians have been trying to metal with our elections and other countries elections for years. it's not news that they're trying to meddle, the question is whether there was collusion or some kind of agreement. that's what the president ought
8:28 am
to be denying. >> exactly. we are not there yet. i think robert mueller, the special counsel is going to answer that question for us eventually, but right now, we have to go on digging and try to answer the question. >> jon: >> you cut it meddling e election. too many outlets say that russia hacked the elections. it's a clear indication saying that they got the voting machines and changed votes. meddling is the right word, hacking is wrong. >> jon: let's turn our attention to another media related incident, this having to do with rachel maddow on something she sat on her program last night. listen. >> a few weeks ago, we got a new document through that channel and at first glance, it was just unbelievably red-hot. if, by any chance this document is real, it is so sensitive, so classified, that i cannot show it to you. we believe now that the real story we have stumbled upon here
8:29 am
is that somebody out there is shopping carefully forged documents to try to discredit news agencies reporting on the russia attack on our election and specifically on the possibility that strong campaign coordinated with the russians in that attack. >> jon: she sang she received a document that looks official, looks like -- essentially, it looks like it says the russians colluded with the trump campaign to alter the election. she says it's fake and she is warning journalists out there. >> she should warn us because there seems to be a concerted campaign to put out information, to discredit the american media. we do a fair amount of that ourselves unintentionally. the fact of the matter is, i think it's in the interest of people who want to discredit us to put out this stuff and what rachel maddow did last night, i watched her for a segment.
8:30 am
the fact that it the first segment showed how important she thought it was. i was convinced that she was referring to a real phony document that her network got that was put out there by somebody who wanted to discredit msnbc. >> it's in great contrast to what happened in march when she said she had president trumps tax reforms. this was much more careful and we bash the media all the time and they should be bashed. this was an opportunity for a media organization and a show to receive something where the narrative was juicy, it was perfect for that audience, and producers and staff did their homework and made sure it didn't get to air and warned other news organizations, so good job. >> they also didn't show the document, good job. >> jon: remember what happened to dan rather over the george w. bush thing. thank you both.
8:31 am
>> molly: a historic meeting today in germany with the long-awaited sitdown between president trump and russian president vladimir putin and while the stakes are high, so are the risks. plus. >> what began as a beautiful day like this one ended as the worst natural disaster in u.s. history with 10-12,000 americans dead. i will take you there coming up. for the lowest price on our rooms guaranteed. plus earn free nights and instant rewards at check-in. yeah. like i said. book now at choicehotels.com

>> jon: we've just closed up the first month of the 2017 hurricane season, thankfully with no major storms hitting the u.s. as we look at these beautiful images of texas, we are reminded that the next katrina or andrew could be brewing any day now. as bad as those two storms were, it's nothing compared to what hit the texas coast back in 1900. at that time, the weather service did not name hurricanes, but even without a name, the great storm will never be forgotten. ♪ the idyllic beaches of galveston, texas, tourists come each year and frolicking on the shores. it's hard to believe seeing it today that this peaceful place was the epicenter of the greatest natural disaster in the history of the united states. ♪ it was 1900 and galveston was

history. a horrible event commemorated by this poignant statue on the galveston seawall. ♪ when the storm passed, survivors emerged to a galveston they did not recognize. city streets filled with mountains of rubble. >> the debris from the houses and properties accumulated during the course of the storm. it became a wall of debris that protected the northern part of the island from the rest of the storm and water. we know that that debris line extended for maybe 2 miles and in some places, it was his two stories heights. >> jon: people dug through the rubble -- really searching for survivors, but locating virtually none. they found only bodies. among them, ten catholic nuns and 90 orphans. still tied together, only three of the st. mary's orphans survived the storm. >> i often think about what they would have experienced walking out their door on the next day and looking at what had happened
8:39 am

storms. they also pump sand on top of the obliterated sections of their city, raising the island as much as 18 feet near the seawall. surviving buildings that could be jacked up off their foundations were lifted to the new grade, some were simply too large. this ceiling that were standing under was very low, but it was a that way. >> it would have been 13 feet, the floor is 8 feet higher than it would have been in the original structure. they filled in the island as much as 18 feet and parts. it feels like the ceilings come down on the floor has gone up, but it was a phenomenal project. >> jon: talk about that. in those days, they didn't have caterpillar tractors and excavators and things like that. >> it's amazing what they did. they used courses and manpower and pulleys and wagons. somehow they raised so many buildings in in the city and protected them from future storms.
8:41 am
>> jon: the great storm took the lives of 1 out of every six gala stony and's. some who did survive simply moved away. galveston would never again be the biggest city in texas. the months and years after, the determination and ingenuity of those who stayed breathe life back into a community that mother nature left for dead. >> the spirit of the people of galveston is really what's important to remember and it's that spirit of we are not going to give up, we are going to make this our home, we are going to handle a star if it happens, but we are going to come back and still be a great city. >> jon: hard to believe, 10-12,000 people died in that storm and even here in new york, they had fundraisers, there was a big fundraiser at the waldorf and the keynote speaker, a guy name samuel clemens, mark twain. they raise $50,000 to help with the rebuilding of galveston, which in those days was a huge
8:42 am
amount of money. >> molly: that was a beautifully done story. the historic photos were incredible and i think the most fascinating part was not just the ingenuity that was shown there and rebuilding the community, the engineering feats involved, but i can't help but think, this is more than 100 years ago. it had such a tremendous impact on generations of families. >> jon: we are so fortunate and so blessed today to have the satellite imagery, we know these days when hurricanes are coming and we can prepare for them. back then, they had absolutely no warning. >> molly: it was a beautiful story. the part about the orphans is heartbreaking and it really speaks to how important it is to be able to see what's coming next. >> jon: absolutely. we're going to be doing more on that in future stories here on "happening now." >> molly: we are in the mist of the season, so hopefully will have a peaceful hurricane season. regions out west, fast-moving wildfires, we are live on those fire lines as crews battle to
