nationalist monument and sparked the deadly chaos that ensued. the city council has voted to cover up confederate statues of lee and stonewall jackson. i'm harris faulkner. here's shep. >> shepard: it's 3:00 on the east coast, noon in reno, nevada where president trump honored american veterans and signed a bill to make it easier for vets to get disability benefits. we'll explain how it could help hundreds of thousands that sacrificed so much for our nation. this comes after a wild night in phoenix. the president going after his critics, battering the news media who report on his words and actions. blasting some republicans that were speaking out against him. and defending himself on topics including his response to the violence in charlottesville. reaction and what you may have missed ahead. president trump also threatening to shut down the united states federal government if congress doesn't cough up cash for his
border wall. now the republican house speaker tells a different story. we'll see how that could play out. plus, hillary clinton in her own words. clinton says when she lost the election, she let down millions of americans and that she will live with that the rest of her life. we'll hear parts of her upcoming book read by the former candidate herself. let's get to it. good wednesday afternoon. a tale of two trumps. two different president trumps in 16 hours. we just watched teleprompter trump give a speak to the "american legion." sticking to script in which he called for national unity. he was nothing like the president trump that spoke last night in phoenix. the president started off that rally by telling thousands of his supporters that our movement is a movement built on love. but then mr. trump went on the defensive, going off script,
blasting the news media. >> and do you ever notice when i go on and i'll put like out a tweet or a couple tweets, he's in a twitter storm again. i don't do twitter storms. you'll put on a little tweet, i'm going to be with the veterans today. they'll say donald trump is in a twitter storm! these are sick people. >> shepard: sick people. the president defended his comments on the violence in charlottesville. he took swipe at fellow republicans and threatened a government shut down and threatened to pardon a controversial sheriff in arizona. this morning, president trump tweeted phoenix crowd last night was amazing. i love the great state of arizona. not a fan of jeff flake. weak on crime and border. he continued in phoenix. i read the things from my statements in charlottesville that the fake news media didn't cover fairly. people got it. if the republican senate doesn't get rid of the filibuster rule
and go to a simply majority, which the democrats would do, they're just wasting time. all of that from the president last night. lots to go through. let's get to the chief white house correspondent john roberts on the north lawn. hello, john. >> i was thinking the same thing you were. there's two president trumps. campaign trump, the one we saw last night in phoenix and policy trump, which is the one that we saw monday in fort meyer talking about afghanistan and a short time ago at the "american legion" convention in reno, nevada, paying tribute to the men and women of the military that have given so much in defense of their nation. it is really striking a new tone than he did last night. last night was -- some people have said it was divisive. i don't think the president would characterize it as divisive. today it was about peace, love and harmony. >> it's time to heal the wounds that divide us and seek a new
unity based on the common values that divide us. we're one people with one home and one great flag. >> the president said a short time ago in reno, we're not defined by the color of our skin or paychecks or politics. we're defined by shared humanity and this magnificent nation and the love that fills our heart. a lot of reaction coming in from the president's speech in phoenix last night. clearly the 15,000 people that were in attendance there at the convention center loved every word of it. here in washington, from the democrats we're getting some reaction to the fact that the president said he would be willing to shut down the government in order to get funding for a border wall. chuck schumer, nancy pelosi, the democratic leader in the house, neither one of them liked it. listen to greg stanton, the mayor of phoenix encouraging president trump not to do the rally last night said in response to his speech last night.
>> unfortunately last night the president gave a speech that did continue to divide this country. he did nothing to unite this country and did indicate he will be pardoning sheriff joe. he decided not to do it last night but made it clear he was planning on doing it. it's a tragedy for the people in phoenix. >> he was thinking last night's speech was divisive. i think the president would not use those words to describe it. i think, shep, he would probably push back on this idea that there seemed to be two president trumps. he would likely say i'm the same person. but being in a campaign style rally is a different environment. >> shepard: one scripted, one from the heart. the president defended his comments about the deadly violence in charlottesville. he said he was going to reread his original statements from that rally. but he didn't. he left out three key words. listen. >> so here's what i said really fast. here's what i said saturday. "we're closely following the terrible events unfolding in charlottesville, virginia." this is he speaking. "we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious
display of hatred, bigotry and violence." that's me speaking saturday. right after the event. >> shepard: he left part of it out. after this event, the president blamed hatred, bigotry and violence on both sides. that last part of the quote "on both sides" said twice drew criticism from americans of all stripes. back to john roberts at the white house now. leaving out "on both sides" was that -- that was the controversy. there's not many sides or both sides to nazis and racism. is he attempting to rewrite history? >> that was in fact the controversy. forgive us. we've been living in a construction zone here. more heavy equipment goes by behind me. when the president was recounting his statements last night and complaining that the press did not report or misreported or misrepresented everything he said, he did seem to engage in some selective editing. insisting his comments last night in the aftermath of charlottesville were perfect in
their tone and in their content. let's listen to what else he said. >> i said everything. i hit them with neo-nazi, i hit them with everything. i got the white supremacists, the neo-nazi, i got them all in there. let's see. kkk. we have kkk. i got them all. so they're having a hard time. so what did they say, right? it should have been sooner. he's a racist. it should have been sooner. okay. >> the president certainly said all of that in his initial response on twitter to what happened in charlottesville. some people complained that he came a little bit late. did seem to be on point. it was when he was at trump tower and he was not supposed to make any comments about charlottesville, he had been warned by people in his inner circle to not do that, he decided to take a lot of questions about it. that's when the president said the infamous words that there's blame on both sides and that there are fine people on both sides. that is in fact what got him in
trouble even with many members of his own party, shep. so yes, selective editing last night. >> shepard: and devolve it did as the fine people on one side are elusive. the president hinted that he plans to pardon the controversial former sheriff, joe arpaio. a judge convicted him of criminal contempt of court. he's awaiting sentences after he refused to stop traffic patrols aimed at detending illegal aliens. >> do the people like sheriff joe? i think he's going to be just fine. i'll make a prediction. >> shepard: he went on to say he wasn't going to do anything last night because he didn't want to cause any controversy. back to john roberts. is a pardon on the way? >> i would think a pardon is on the way. that's what the president seemed to indicate last night and i'm sure members of his inner circle were having kittens as he talked
about it. on the way to phoenix, sarah huckabee sanders said that the president would not discuss it, wouldn't take any action on it. as he was walking right up to that line, i'm sure there were a lot of nails being bitten down to the quick. listen to how the president put the rest of it last night. >> i won't do it tonight because i don't want to cause any controversy. is that okay? all right? but sheriff joe can feel good. the people of arizona know the deadly and heart breaking consequences of illegal immigration. the lost lives, the drugs, the gangs, the cartels, the crisis of smuggling and trafficking. >> so what does sheriff joe arpaio face? sentencing october 5. carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail, which means he may be 86 when he gets out. he's currently 85 right now. he was talking with neil cavuto on the fox business network
earlier today. here's what he said in response to what the president said. >> he wasn't ashamed. he went out there and talked about it. that's him. he's still in charge. he's the president. i have a great deal of respect for him. i always will have, pardon or no pardon. i'm with him till the end. >> should the president pardon him, shep and i expect he will, he may be doing it on principle more than anything. the likelihood is that arpaio may not go to jail. but the president feels that he was found in contempt of court for doing his job. that's why the president wants to protect him. >> shepard: while in arizona, the president did not go to visit the american hero john mccain, senator from arizona recovering from brain cancer. and then neither he nor jeff flake were there. he took shots at both of them. they were not there, as i mentioned. the president made a point of not mentioning them by name. he did talk about the senate failing to pass the healthcare
bill. of course, it was senator john mccain that casting the deciding no vote. >> we were one vote away. think of it. seven years, the republicans and again you have great senators. but we were one vote away from repeal. nobody wants me to talk about your other senator who is weak on borders, weak on crime. >> shepard: the other senator is jeff flake. he released a book that is openly critical of president trump and the president has tweeted praise for flake's primary opponent. today one of his opponents, john kasich tweeted that i urged the president to unite the country. it was disappointing in phoenix that he once again refused. what greatness has america ever accomplished by tearing down its own. we must all unite for a common goal. a stronger america. back to john at the white house. john? >> talking about tearing down
your own, it's clear that president trump is in a war with several members of his own party. john mccain, jeff flake who he's campaigning against, he's throwing jeff flake's opponent in next year's centaur yeah primary, kelli ward, he has the relationship with mitch mcconnell on the rocks. the president, even though he did without mentioning names mentioned john mccain and jeff flake. he said he was being true to the request from his staff not to bring it up. listen here. >> you know, they all said, mr. president, your speech was so good last night. please, please, mr. president, don't mentioned any names. so i won't. i won't. no, i won't. one vote away. i won't mention any names. very presidential, isn't it? >> on the topic of the icy
relationship between the president and mitch mcconnell who are said to have not spoken with each other for weeks, i was told that every marriage goes through an ebb and flow. there's no reason for them to go to counselling just yet. certainly they're not headed for divorce court. they have a lot to get done together. >> shepard: john roberts in the yard. thanks very much. the president as you know wants to build that wall. mexico will not pay for it. so congress has to make the money available. if it won't, president trump is now threatening to shut down the united states government. now new in the last hour, the house speaker, paul ryan, has a whole different message. we're live on capitol hill coming up from the fox news deck on this wednesday afternoon.
>> shepard: the house speaker, paul ryan, says he agrees with president trump this a physical barrier is needed along the mexican border. unlike the president, speaker ryan says he does not believe in shutting down the government to make it happen. here's speaker ryan earlier this afternoon. >> i don't think a government shut down is necessary and i don't think most people want to see a government shut down ourselves included. >> shepard: the president says he does. last night mr. trump threatened exactly that. to get the $1.6 billion he wants to just start building the wall, a small piece of it calling it a national security issue. >> if we have to close down our government, we're building that
wall. let me be very clear to democrats in congress who oppose a border wall and stand in the way of border security. you are putting all of america's safety at risk. >> shepard: his critics disagree. remember, during his campaign, mr. president said mexico would pay for the wall. of course, mexican officials say they will never pay for the wall. so the president says he wants congress to finance it. democrats and some republicans are saying no. so there's a spending bill that is due on september 30th. if that legislation does not include funding for the wall, which apparently it will not, president trump can refuse to sign it that would cause the government shut down. let's bring in chad pergram. how likely is this? >> well, it's a very real chasm that they have right now between the republican leadership, rank and file republicans and the president of the united states. i use the term chasm.
we've had these fissures for a while now. the republicans are distancing themselves from the president, certainly after charlottesville, but we have a san andreas fault opening up. shep, i should point out in late july, just before the house of representatives went away, they passed four of the 12 annual spending bills. lay lopped on top of that money for the border wall. why did that do that? a single bill, a single funding bill to fund the border wall wouldn't pass in the house of representatives. zero democrats would vote for this and many republicans are opposed. so they lop this on top of this bill so those for the wall could say hey, we voted for this and leadership might be able to say we did this a little bit, mr. president, let's do something more scaled down. democrats control the cards in this. there's not enough republican votes in the house and the senate even though they have majority to keep the government open and raise the debt ceiling.
what we're starting to hear on capitol hill, the republican leaders might put together a bill that essentially dares the president to shut down the government or veto this and then look at what he did on the signing statement on the russia and north korea and iran sanctions bill. he signed it, grudgingly, but he said you guys don't know what you're doing, we don't like it and i don't like many things here. this is a good setup for the president to use congress as a foil, shep. >> shepard: are members of congress, democrats and republicans, there was a time when everyone that represented a border district or in the case a border stated was against this. is that still the case? >> yeah, a lot of those that are like that, especially those in the texas delegation, the whip with john cornyn has had some reservations here. will heard from a swing district on the texas border. he's been completely against this. this is a republican congressman from texas. so there's a lot of trepidation on the republican side of the
aisle. the thing that will get many of these members of congress most exercised is that the president is actively calling for a government shut down. when we had the 16-day government shut down in 2016, republicans would always say to me, it's always the democrats, harry reid and president obama that are calling for a government shut down. they were always able to deflect that when they were trying to defund obamacare, which is why the government closed in 2013. they certainly can't say that now when the president is actively calling for a shut down. >> shepard: especially given that republicans are in control of all of washington. very unusual for a government shut down when one party is in control of everything. >> that's why the democrats have all the cards here. they can't move the debt ceiling build and the government funding bill with the votes. the math doesn't work. people want lower spending or don't want to raise the debt ceiling so they rely on the democrats, this is where nancy pelosi and chuck schumer, they don't want a government shut
down either but that's why they might be welling to extract some concessions here. the one thing i would like for is the censure resolution. >> censuring the president. still a possibility. >> three presidents have been censured before, james polk and andrew jackson was one. he was censured by the senate. he basically wouldn't provide documents to the senate over a veto getting rid of a national bank at the time and the senate censured him in 1834 and 1837 they expunged that censure. >> shepard: thanks, chad. great to see you. >> any time. >> shepard: president trump covered a lot of topics last night. we'll talk to a journalist that said the president was not trying to appeal to his base at all but had other goals in mind. what were those? that's next.

>> shepard: this time yesterday, president trump was being widely praised for his speech the night before on strategy in the afghanistan war. last night, he blew it all up. attacking fellow republicans, railing against the news media and so much more. many analysts suggested that this was the president's attempt with his approval rating tanking to shore up his base. his one remaining block of support. our next guest says that's not it. amber phillips is here. she's from "the washington post." what is your take? >> yeah, my take is the president went to phoenix with a chip on his shoulder that he had to unload. why do i say that? because he took the first few minutes to, you know, talk about his successes and where he's going with the country and then he pivoted almost immediately to a paper he pulled out of his pocket that he said were his
remarks that he made after the charlottesville violence on saturday and monday. he spent the next 30 minutes reading them, alternating between reading them and complaining the media didn't cover the remarks the way he wished. this was clearly premeditated that the president was going to phoenix and express his anger and frustration that he's not getting positive coverage after one of the worst weeks of his presidency thus far. >> shepard: he just started to get positive coverage. his white houses insistent that you stay on script. you're in a good moment. the best in a long time. instead this. his white house must be reeling. general kelly was supposed to fix this. >> right. he hasn't. clearly. trump is going to trump. we've said that before, i'll say it again. especially in this moment. last night felt different than the trump who like to ramble and
get applause from his base. it felt like he was frustrated and angry that he didn't get better coverage. that's very different than what the president has done in the past, which is used the media as some sort of boogie man to give him cover for his legislative agenda stalling or trouble with his republicans in congress. he's completely and truly frustrated with the press and it was so clear last night that he blames the media for his problems and his spoiling presidency. >> shepard: is anyone inside his white house try to remind him that his problem is of his own making? every time he reads what it is he's supposed to read and just acts presidential in some way things go great as they had the night before? when he goes off on these tangents that it all falls apart again? >> right. they're saying that and it's falling on deaf ears. you know what was remarkable about his speech in phoenix, he acknowledged that his advisers are telling him the stay away
from controversy. he said oh, i would like to pardon sheriff joe arpaio but i won't because i don't want to create controversy. when he moved on to criticizing john mccain and jeff flake, he made a big show of the fact that he wasn't going to use their names because his advisers told him not to name names. he is just out in the open with the fact that he's getting advice and he's totally not using it. >> shepard: amber phillips from "the washington post." nice to talk to you, amber. >> thank you. >> shepard: we're getting a look at the work that crews have done on the white house while it was closed for the renovations. according to white house officials, there's fresh paint in the west wing and the roosevelt room. it has a slight blue tint called federal blue. there's also a pair of new gold-painted eagles in the roosevelt room. then there's the oval office. there officials say the president picked a temporary
wallpaper. they say it's supposed to match with the new rug that he will the design. president trump wants to bring back the luster and glory of the white house. president trump left the white house for 17 days. they included updates to the heating and cooling system across the building, a navy commander out of a job after two deadly crashes. what the top brass is saying about him and new pictures of the search for missing american sailors. that's coming up as we approach the bottom of the hour and the top of the news.
>> shepard: a fox report now. headlines from the fox news deck. investigators say a group of thieves used a pickup to smash their way to a convenience store in louisiana. happened just outside new orleans. the driver there threw the truck into reverse a few times and one of the suspects had to run out of the way to avoid getting hit.
you can see the party was on after that. investigators say the suspect stole an atm machine. a fast-moving brush fire destroyed homes and forced people to evacuate in washington state. that's according to fire officials south of seattle. firefighters say they have the flames contained. no reports of anybody hurt. if you plan to fly around the moon with space x, check out the spacesuit you'll get to wear. the company's ceo elon musk giving us a first look today. he says he has an incredibly hard way to get it to look like good and function correctly. the first space tourism flight to take off next year.
when they thought they should westart saving for retirement.le then we asked some older people when they actually did start saving. this gap between when we should start saving and when we actually do is one of the reasons why too many of us aren't prepared for retirement. just start as early as you can. it's going to pay off in the future. if we all start saving a little more today, we'll all be better prepared tomorrow. prudential. bring your challenges. >> shepard: the house armed services committee announcing it will hold a hearing on navy readiness after two of its ships from the seventh fleet were involved in deadly collisions in two months. navy officials relieved that fleet's commander of his duties. they cited a loss of confidence in vice admiral joseph aucoin's
ability to command. the navy released these pictures showing divers searching for missing sailors after the u.s.s. john mccain collided with an oil tanker. the crash tore a hole in the side of the ship. the navy reports divers have found the remains of some of the ten missing sailors. navy officials tell fox news crews need heavy equipment so divers can free bodies from the flooded compartments. jennifer griffin live at the pentagon. an investigation coming. >> the navy has fired 13 senior leaders this year for cause. late last night, the commander of the u.s. pacific need relieved the head of the japan base's seventh fleet, vice addmer raleigh joseph aucoin. he's the highest ranking officer to face discipline. to give you an idea how big the seventh fleet is, at any given time, there's between 60 to 70
warships, 200 to 300 aircraft and 40,000 navy and marine corps personnel assigned to the seventh fleet in the pacific. the crash of the john mccain comes days after the navy announced they would punish a dozen sailors from another seventh fleet ship, the u.s.s. fitzgerald after seven sailors were killed in june. two captains and a top admiral have been relieved of duty after four mishaps this year. >> shepard: jennifer what are other navy officers saying about this? >> retired navy officers are sounding alarm bells. my grandfather, for instance, was a naval officer on a destroyer in korea. he tells me in all of his years in the navy, he heard of perhaps one instance of this magnitude. that was during wartime. others have raised the questions
about the readiness. tighter budgets have forced cut backs from 600 ships in the 80s to 271 now. >> i think what you're seeing is a culmination of years of the navy senior leadership in washington d.c. that have failed to properly man, train and equip the fleet to do their jobs. >> a damning government accountability study warned that shorter maintenance and training periods for forward deployed navy vessels was taking a toll as resources shrunk in the past decade. frankly, this is no surprise to those that have been decrying the military's readiness problem, shep. >> shepard: what are we learning about u.s. troops heading to afghanistan, if anything? >> the pentagon and defense secretary says no final decisions have been made. no orders signed. army officials are pushing back on the notion that thousands of
paratroopers are being send to afghanistan even though we know the 82nd airborne is next up to deploy there. the army says they're still awaiting deployment orders. what we know is the president has given secretary jim mattis the authority to send up to 4,000 troops to afghanistan. some could be arriving in the couple days and week. >> shepard: i know of a couple deploying myself. new photos show that north korea is advancing more ballistic missiles. state media released the images which appeared to show one or two new designs. you can see diagramming hanging on the wall behind dictator kim jong-un who is visiting a plant and looking at things. kim jong-un looks at things. solid fuel engines allow for quicker launching than liquid fuel ones. north korea claims to have conducted a dozen missile tests. a recent one in july was an intercontinental ballistic
missile that said could reach the u.s. mainland and at which kim jong-un looked. donald trump was looming behind me. that from hillary clinton talking about one of the 2016 debates in her new book what he said she wishes she could have done differently coming up. first, tropical depression moving through the gulf of mexico. what is the deal with that, rick reichmuth? >> this is a storm we've been watching that came across the pacific, the caribbean and across the yucatan. now conditions finally favorable for strengthening. this is the track that we have out of here potentially getting towards hurricane strength sometimes by friday here right along the coast of florida. the problem here, the hurricane moving on coast is one of the problems, but a storm that stalls out is a much bigger
problem. most of our model guidance bringing it somewhere here towards the texas coast. the bigger problem is what happens after that. these are steering patterns and go away and gets blocked actually right here across parts of texas. when you have something like that, you have a lot of tropical moisture potentially continuing to pull up these waters that are really warm here across the gulf, well into the upper 80s and that means if the storms get close to shore, we get a lot of rain. we'll likely see this get close to hurricane strength potentially more than that. saturday, the storm on shore. you can see areas that have seen six or eight inches of rain. then right after this, if this stalls out, we are going to watch a major deluge here across parts of texas, in through areas of louisiana. want to point that out. some of our model guidance putting out numbers in the 40 plus inch range. it's hard to see that happening in models. when you get this early on putting models with numbers like
that, you get scared that we'll have a major flooding situation across parts of texas. we're around 48 hours before we have landfall. that's coming on us very quickly in parts of the western caribbean. we'll track this here in the fox weather center the right now everybody in texas and louisiana needs to be on the watch.

it was the second debate. two days before, the world heard him about groping women. now we were on a small stage. no matter where i walked, he followed me closely, staring at me making faces. it was incredibly uncomfortable. he was literally breathing down my neck. my skin crawled. >> shepard: clinton said she thought about saying "back up, you creep." she was referring to the access hollywood report in which candidate trump talked about assaulting women without consequences because he was a star. grabbed them in their private parts. president trump apologized for the remarks and called the conversation locker room banter. trace gallagher with the rest. trace? >> there's a few other factors that played a part in the second presidential debate and they add more context to hillary clinton's contents about making
her skin crawl. donald trump was accused of sexual assault by multiple women. he denied all of the accusations around turned around and brought three women to the debate that had accused former president bill clinton of sexual assault. hillary clinton said she regrets that she handled the moment of the debate badly. watch. >> you wish you could hit pause and ask everyone watching, well, what would you do? do you stay calm, keep smiling and carry on as if he wasn't repeatedly invading your space? or do you turn, look him in the eye and say loudly and clearly, back up, you creep, get away from me. i know you love to intimidate women, but you can't intimidate me. >> yeah, she says she kept her cool, but she admits that option
b would have made for better television. shep? >> shepard: she talked about why she wrote the book. >> yeah, she talks about the disappointment she still feels in having lost the election. she says the book should not be an exhaustive accounts of her 2016 run. she says i have too little distance and too great a stake in it. she says she wants to tell her story. listen again. >> i want to pull back the curtain on an experience that was accelerating, joyful, humbling, infuriating and just plain baffling. writing this wasn't easy. every day i was a candidate for president, i knew millions of people were counting on me and i couldn't bear the idea of letting them down. but i did. >> shepard: she also talked about special family moments that she will never forget like her granddaughter coming to one of the debates and the fact that she was the first female nominee for president. shep? >> shepard: trace gallagher,
