elizabeth: what would you do? leland: stay in my car. maybe you have to be a cowboy, too. how good are you with a lasso? see you next week. >> fox news alert. president trump standing by his decision to scrap obamacare subsidies after signing an executive order, rolling back parts of the healthcare law. hello. welcome to a brand-new hour. i'm kelly wright. julie: and i'm julia banderas. some lawmakers fighting back, but the president is saying the opposite. kristen fisher joins us live. what is the president saying today about his decision to scrap the subsidies? >> he's proud of it, julie.
he's been doing what he said he would do, systematically dismantling some of his predecessor's signature achievements, from decertifying the iran nuclear deal from ending obamacare subsidies. he said, "very proud of my executive order that will allow greatly expanded access and lower costs for healthcare. millions of people benefit." in taking that action, president trump did something he often criticized his predecessor of doing -- using executive orders to bypass am congress that seems incapable of getting anything done, but his actions were applauded yesterday. listen to what he told the crowd of conservative voters just hours after that action was announced. >> congress, they forgot with the their pledges were. so we're going a little different route, but you know what, in the end, it will be just as effective as maybe it will even be better.
>> president trump is helping that in taking this drastic action it, will force republicans and democrats back to the table to cut a deal on healthcare. critics are calling it a dangerous game of chicken, one that puts low-income americans in the crosshairs by causing premiums to skyrocket and already, julie, 20 states have filed lawsuits. jul julie: it's mounting. how is congress responding to the president's decision to decertify the iran nuclear deal? >> speaker ryan said that he supports it 100 percent percent. other top republicans like senators corker and rubio, they're working on bills that they say will fix some of the fundamental flaws of the iran nuclear deal without violating it. democrats, no surprise here, adamantly oppose it. >> president trump's refusal to recertify is a grave mistake
that threatens america's security and our credibility at a very critical time. the president is ignoring the overwhelming consensus of nuclear scientists, national security experts, generals and his own cabinet, including reportedly, the secretary of defense and secretary of state. >> so president trump going against the advice of some of his top advisors, but today is standing by his decision. one other thing, congress had a massive to-do list over the next few months. at the top of that list, of course, tax reform, but now on top of that list, they've got the iran deal and healthcare that they need to deal with, really before christmas. julie? julie: a lot on the plate. i will be talking to ambassador james woolsey. what does it mean for the united
states and for president trump's plans? i will be discussing that in an interview coming up. kelly? kelly: president trump's refusal it recertify the nuclear deal sparking a new war of words with iran. the country's president condemning president trump's speech as he also vowed to ramp up iran's military. interpreter: our weapons and missiles are for our defense. we're more determined to defend. we've been making weapons we need and will multiply our efforts. kelly: for more, we turn to john huddy. israel is america's closest ally in the middle east. what is their reaction? >> well, positive on the president's side. prime minister benjamin netanyahu in a recorded statement released after the president's speech is standing by his friend and ally donald trump and said in a statement
that president trump "boldly confronted iran's terrorist regime in his speech last night." and the prime minister added that if the iran deal is left unchanged, according to the prime minister, in a few years, iran will have an arsenal of nuclear weapons. the prime minister's statement wasn't exactly a surprise. he's been a staunch opponent and ally. they have met several times since the president took office, including at the u.n. general assembly, where the president gave his speech, you may recall, and is critical of the iran agreement, calling it an embarrassment. prime minister netanyahu agreed with that and used the words to describe the president's speech before the u.n. g.a. as well. and both leaders agreed that iran's ongoing missile program remains a significant threat. president trump said that by continuing to develop its icbms,
enter continental ballistic missiles, iran is violating the "spirit" of the nuclear agreement. he said that time and time again. and that's something that israeli leaders absolutely agree with. kelly? kelly: what are other countries saying about the president's speech? >> they're more critical. we've heard more critical viewpoints after the speech and also today with other world leaders and countries speaking up. officials with the u.k., france, germany, said that the iran agreement is, "in our shared national security interest." and that dove tails with what iranian president said in his own statement last night. obviously, it was in the headlines, on tv, in the press, as well. he said that the u.s. is more isolated than ever because of the president's speech and it's not up to the u.s. alone to terminate the agreement, adding
that, "the iranian nation is not a nation that will yield to forceful talking and hateful speeches from a dictator," of course this coming from a country and country's regime that last night as you probably heard, kelly, president trump said has two favorite chants, "death to america" and "death to israel." kelly? kelly: john huddy, thank you for that report. julie: for more on this, ambassador james woolsey, former director of the cia and foundation of the defense for democracy. thank you for talking to us >> good to be with you. julie: this iran deal is and sore spot and it's never quite been a successful one, but so far, many believe it's working, but it could be better. the united states is taking a very strong stance on this, despite u.s. allies backing it. what happens if the u.s. doesn't get the support of our allies? >> i don't think the support of the allies is the main thing.
the main thing is that they went off the beam, i think, when they did this agreement. julie: be specific by "they." who went off the beam? >> the obama white house and some members of the foreign relations committee. they knew they could not get it approved as a treaty, even though the seriousness is designed to be a treaty. they knew they couldn't get it approved, so they fiddled around with the filibuster rule and came out with a way in which they could get by the senate with only 1/3 of the senate instead of 2/3. well, you know, 1/3 is close enough for government work, right? no. there's a very fundamental problem with this agreement. and i think that another problem with it is that as you move
forward, let's suppose you and i are u.n. inspectors. we hear about radioactive soil, so we go to the iranians and say, we want to inspect this and they say, fine. after an hour, we're under way and they stop our car and they say, i'm sorry. you can't go there. that's a military facility. and we say, what do you mean? well, you know, we made it a military facility 5 minutes ago, so you cannot inspect it. that's the nature of this so-called agreement. it really is a fraud. julie: you cannot trust it and you cannot trust the iranian leaders, much like north korea. we talk about icbms, intercontinental ballistic missiles. regardless of this deal, if they have their hands on one, they can't be trusted with one. and not only is israel in a direct shot, israel has been rep
the -- repeatedly threatened. why don't the u.k. and germany and france, why can't they see the dire threat and need to shut this down? do they want to see israel blown off the map? i'm sure iran, if it came down to it, would not feel sorry for them if they had to use the missile. >> they don't want to see anybody blown off the map, but they're seized by the spirit of appeasement that has seized those countries since the 1930s. they want to kick the can down the road and hope that a future generation will deal with it. julie: to a later generation, doesn't necessarily work, especially when you consider that this deadly weapon of mass proportions could be in the hands of evil. you won't have a next generation
if they use it. >> we're in this mess today because previous generations of leaders kicked the can down the road and did not solve the problem. we've got to do something about this more than just wring our hands. julie: ambassador james woolsey, thank you very much. >> great to be with you. kelly: american woman and her family freed by terrorists arriving in canada after being held captive for five years. the husband revealing terrifying details about their ordeal. joshua boyle saying that the haqqani network, one of the most deadly of the taliban factions, raped his wife and killed one of his five children. >> that family right now being reunited with their own family members, and also undergoing medical checks, this after flying back into toronto airport earlier today.
at the airport, joshua boyle talked a little bit more about their time in captivitcaptivity. it appears that they were not well treated and made serious allegations about their kidnappers. >> the stupidity and evil of the haqqani network, kidnapping of a pilgrim and his heavily pregnant wife, engaged in helping ordinary villagers in taliban-controlled regions of afghanistan was eclipsed only by the stupidity and evil by authorizing the murder of my infant daughter. >> caithe couple had their firs baby and three more children while being held hostage. one baby died. another is said to have health problems, and that trade the family's return. in that video, the couple was seen pleading for their lives. the family was finally rescued
by the pakistan military last wednesday after u.s. intelligence tippoffs that they had been moved from afghanistan to pakistan and they were about to be moved again when that raid to rescue them happened. the haqqani network, who held the company, is an extremist group, notorious for kidnapping for cash, linked to the taliban and they've held western hostages before. the u.s. has designated this network a terrorist organization and often targets them in the war in afghanistan. good news, the family is safe at last, but there are many questions about why they were traveling in that area of afghanistan, which supervisor particularly well known for insurgent activity. kelly? kelly: those questions will remain until the answers can be found. thank you. julie: a desperate scene in mogadishu, as police say people are trapped under the rubble of what was once a hotel. that building right now in
pieces after a massive truck bomb went off earlier today. at least 20 people were killed. residents are calling it the most powerful blast they've heard in years. so far, no claim of responsibility, but suspicions are pointing to the radical islamic terror group al shabab. >> i spoke to the president last week and told him he needs to coin a new term, "fake republicans." kelly: who does he have in mind? do you think you could run a marathon every day for a month? one wounded warrior is doing just that. his incredible story that you have to see here, next. >> remember who you are. you're a warrior. you went to war and you fought valiantly. it may not feel like it, but you

former vice president joe biden is stum bing -- stumping for ed northam, who is running against ed gillespie. vice president mike pence will be in virginia to rally for the republican candidate. this is pence's first campaign event. >> i spoke to the president last week and i told him he needs to coin a new term, "fake republicans." that's what those people you just named are. they're not really republicans we don't really have a majority in the senate. that would be a good term for him to start using kelly: that's jerry falwell jr. weighing in on the escalating republican feud. senator bob corker slamming the president again, this time over his treatment of rex tillerson.
"you cannot publicly castrate your own secretary of state without giving yourself the binary choice. you can raise tensions in a region." contributing editor of the washington free beacon joins us to weigh in. this feud is escalating. one could say that republicans are eating republicans. what is up with the republican party? >> it's hard to overstate the hatred that a lot of people in washington, and by people, i mean republicans in washington, have for this president. we've seen this for now a couple of years throughout the campaign since he's been elected. they dislike donald trump. they don't like his ideologically and bob corker feels liberated to go on and
trash the president. problem is, meanwhile the rest of americans sit here and nothing gets done. and i think, you know, you can escalate the war of words or you can rachet it back and try to get things done. kelly: along with jerry falwell on that program with sean hannity was robert jeffress, the president out of dallas, texas, that called the republican party the do-nothing establishment so, again, if republicans are fighting each other at this stage of the game, and the president's huge agenda with regard to healthcare reform, which we've seen him take an executive order on obamacare and the tax reform and other things he wants to get done in this country including his border wall, can republicans ever hope to get there if they're fighting each other? >> yeah, i think it makes it
more difficult. administratively, president trump can do what he wants. he made this iran announcement yesterday. he is able to do these things. however, if he wants to have lasting impact, because he's rolling back what president obama did, if he doesn't want his things rolled back, he needs to pass things in congress. he will need bob corker's vote to get that done. and the problem with escalating, taking jerry falwell jr.'s advice, that looks forward to the 2018 election. and maybe there's a time for that. and maybe he's correct, if you want something done this year, next year, you have to do it now.
kel kelly: i get why the republicans are upset, but if the president, perhaps, dialed it back and reached out to republicans more, though he will argue he's reached out to them numerous times, failed him, let him down, does this even spark more of -- more tensions as we go forward >> >> he is reaching out to republicans a fair amount. he is golfing with a republican senator today. he is much more so than barack obama was. i don't think the problem is the reaching out. there is actually dislike. the question is, can they put away their hatred to get things done? kelly: so this is becoming a question of personality as opposed to a question of implementing a policy. >> i think so. i think it's very much personality-driven. and it's petty. it's small. kelly: you got that right.
many people would say, yeah, you have a good point there, daniel. we have to find out what will go on within this republican party. thanks for joining us, sir. and have a good saturday afternoon. >> thank you very much. julie: president trump reaching out to democrats in a bid to overhaul healthcare. >> what would be nice is if the democratic leaders could come over to the white house, we'll negotiate some deal that's good for everybody. that's what i'd like. but they're always a block vote against everything. they're like obstructionists. julie: will democrats come on board? a democratic congressman from california will join us. gusty winds fanning the flames in northern california, sparking more evacuations. >> emotional toll around here is that a lot of people working on the fire live in the area including myself and have friends and family in the area. so it's definitely added to the
stress of the job. managing blood sugar is a series of smart choices. and when you replace one meal... ...or snack a day with glucerna... ...made with carbsteady... ...to help minimize blood sugar spikes... ...you can really feel it. now with 30% less carbs and sugars. glucerna. looking from a fresh perspective can make all the difference. it can provide what we call an unlock: a realization that often reveals a better path forward. at wells fargo, it's our expertise in finding this kind of insight that has lead us to become one of the largest investment and wealth management firms in the country. discover how we can help find your unlock.

julie: now officials ordering a new round of mandatory evacuations after gusty winds return to northern california fanning the deadly flames. at least 35 people are confirmed dead and at least 5,700 homes and businesses destroyed. meanwhile, search and rescue teams still combing through the rubble. >> we still have 300 missing people. we will not give ourselves a time limit, but we'll find every missing person that gets reported. >> will carr live in napa, california, what is the latest with the fires right now? >> julie, there's a thick plume of smoke building across the area after several fires picked up steam overnight. that led to more evacuations in parts of sonoma and east santa rosa, of course, after flames
swept across this area, destroying everything in their path, decimating this community. and we have video of a sheriff's deputy racing through the streets trying to save lives. take a look. >> where are you at? >> we're here. come on. she's disabled. >> all right. let me get her feet. >> do not pass. do not pass. sonoma county sheriff's office. mandatory evacuation order. leave your homes. sonoma county sheriff's office. mandatory evacuation order. leave your homes. >> go, go, go, go, go! drive! go! >> as we talk, cadaver dogs are working their way property to property. there are more than 300 people missing across this area. jul
julie: oh, my gosh. are the homes covered by insurance? >> that's a little bit of good news. 90% of the homeowners were covered by insurance, but so many had such little time to get out, they didn't take any possessions and lost most of what they had. take a listen to one mom whose home burned down. >> not only did i lose my house, but i lost my kids' baby books, their medical bracelets, all of their first stuff, newborn clothes, all the stuff that moms collect. >> the rest of the day is completely dependent on how strong the winds are up at the fires. julie? julie: it's tragic. will carr, thank you. kelly? kelly: president trump rolling back obamacare subsidies and democratic leaders are slamming the move, saying it will hurt middle class americans, this as the president points to a dip in healthcare stocks as a
sign of immediate success. "health insurance stocks, which have gone through the roof
during the obamacare years, plunged yesterday after i ended
their dems' windfall." joining me now, democratic congressman, joining us now. >> first, i'm trying to get the previous story out of my mind. i was in the fire areas yesterday. it's horrible. the president is hurting americans rates will go up 20% to 30%, as a direct result of what the president is doing. and many people will not be able to afford that. they will lose their insurance. and they will be personally harmed, physically harmed, in many cases. why would you do that?
we've attempted to solve this problem having to do with the subsidi subsidies, but the republicans have refused to allow that one-sentence fix to be put into any law. you go, why? why would anybody, congress or the president, want to personally, physically, harm people. i don't get it. i really don't. kelly: what can be done? the president is reaching out to you and other democrats to come on board and do something to solve this issue once and for all. republicans have tried to come forward and nothing has happened as well. how will you get both parties to the table? >> well, what is the goal here? is the goal to do away with the affordable care act with obamacare? is that the goal? or is the goal to tri to set up an insurance mechanism that works for americans? there are problems with obamacare. the prescription drugs need to
be addressed. we know there are too many opioids out there. the costs need to be negotiated. we also know that this crs needs to be in the law. we've aim today -- we've attempted to do that. what we get from our republican friends is a repeal and in most cases making things worse for americans. that's what all the repeal efforts have been, repeal and replacement, 10, 20, 30, 35 million americans losing their insurance. is the goal to make it better for americans or simply to notch off, okay, we did it, did away with obamacare? that's not a goal for americans. it may be a political goal, but it's extraordinarily harmful. kelly: lets get beyond the politics. you mentioned it's harmful to go the way it's going now. your bottom line.
what has to be done to meet the needs of the american people? >> first of all, we need to be able to bring down the costs of medical care. it's the cost of medical care that is driving the insurance premiums upward. can we do that? absolutely. we can do many things along the way. i mentioned a moment ago the prescription drugs. we ought to be able to negotiate those prices once again, democratic efforts to negotiate prices have been blocked by republicans and big pharma. there are better ways to deliver medicine and part of it is in the affordable medical care act. there are other things that can be done. kelly: we'll continue to watch the developments. before i let you go, i want you to talk about california once more. that story we saw was just
heartbreaking. julie and i have been talking about it as well. we know some people have been lost in that fire. this is your home state. >> it is. i've been the insurance commissioner in california eight years beginning in 1991 with the oakland hills fire, where some 25, 26 people were killed. this fire was extraordinarily dangerous because it exploded in the middle of the night. there will be -- we will find people that literally died in their bed that never even knew what had happened. we had such a case in yuba county, which is part of my district, an elderly couple unable to get out in the middle of the night. this is really unusual. in fact, it's never happened before where this kind of a fire happened in the middle of the night. kelly: for those that lost their lives in that fire and can't be found, it's my understanding that their loved ones can't declare their deceased but as missing persons right now.
is that correct? >> well, they certainly -- if you don't know where your loved one is, if you don't know where your neighbor is, file that missing person report with the sheriff. the there's a lot of procedures that will be going through. kelly: it makes it even more devastating of an impact for those families >> absolutely the headline in the "sacramento bee" is "ashes and bones." it's heartbreaking. kelly: my prayers to the people of california and you, sir. representative john gir -- gairamandi. thank you. julie: changing the timeline in las vegas. authorities are not offering new
information about what they believe motivated paddock to open fire on a country music festival nearly two weeks ago killing 58 people. mgm disputes the timeline saying that the hotel employee was shot about 40 seconds before paddock turned his guns on the festival crowd. kelly: incredible story of a wounded warrior. how a double-amputee is going the distance. hillary clinton sparking a backlash for comments she made about president trump in the wake of the harvey weinstein scandal. >> hillary is a very angry person, obviously. she ran the worst campaign in the history of presidential campaigns she could not connect with females, couldn't connect with african-americans. now she's on a book tour to say it's everybody else's fault. the best simple salad ever?

husband and you dismissed them. was that the right thing to do? >> yes, because that had been litigated. it was the subject of a huge investigation, as you might recall in the late '90s and there were conclusions drawn and that was clearly in the past. julie: she's bringing it into the current, though. thank you, both. watching that interview, i cringed a bit. i think it's great for the clintons that she was able to forgive him, but she's talking about an investigation that's in the past. her husband was impeached for lie are under oath about having sex with an intern and she's coming out and speaking about how it's not right -- i don't get it. tammy, is this a double standard and why is she dragging this out? she said it's in the past. then leave it there. >> look, this matters because
this is partly why she lost. women did not trust her judgment. the nature of what she says to women. the hypocrisy, double standard. the fact is, she placed the women's lives -- this involves real, living women, as a litigated dynamic. he was impeached for lying to a federal judge. it was about the paula jones case, because there were multiple women that came forward, gennifer flowers, monica lewinsky. and the problem with hillary and what george stephanopoulos wrote about in his book, "all too human," it was hillary's strategy in approach in an attempt to destroy bill clinton's accusers. for monica lewinsky, it wasn't necessarily the consensual relationship that she had with hillary's husband but the attacks after the fact
as a feminist, as everyone is pointing to other people or hillary wants to ignore what happened before, the question is, when you are not admitting, someone like this doing it for three decades, how many more women were thrown into the harvey weinstein volcano while everybody was marching in washington against donald trump? julie: most people would feel sorry for someone whose husband did what bill clinton did, but hillary clinton was responsible for trying to get these women to lip it, because her husband was president and she wanted to stay in the white house. so whether she was a woman scorned or not, she didn't have these women's back. now she has the back of the women coming forward and accusing harvey weinstein of a lot of the similar acts that her own husband did. robin, do you see a double standard here? >> you know what the double standard is that i see?
we're attacking hillary clinton, who herself, was never an adulterer, never committed any sexual assault. julie: but women say she helped to silence them after she knew her husband was doing what he was doing. >> did melania trump not do the same thing when she dismissed president trump -- candidate trump at the same time the "access hollywood" case. julie: she didn't reach out to billy bush and tried to suppress it >> she said it was locker room talk. julie: she dismissed it, but didn't try to cover it up. hillary clinton was accused of putting pressure on these women to keep their mouths shut and by trying to do that tried to discredit them in making bill the victim in a lot of the cases. i hate to bring up the past because, believe me, i don't ever want to have to talk about this again, but by hillary
coming forward saying that bill's troubling behavior is in the past, she's reminding of us bill's past. and so many women have accused him of sexual list conduct, one accused him of rape, one of groping her without consent, exposing himself and sexually harassing her. and in addition, several other women accused clinton of consensual adultery. so, sorry, the timing of all of this is super bizarre. i get that she's trying to sell books, but going after a current president or harvey weinstein, maybe not appropriate. >> donald trump has been accused by 15 different accusers. that was also in the past. but now he does hold elected office and he very clearly in the "access hollywood" tapes was talking about sexual assault. >> i'm not saying it's forgivable. it's disgusting. >> it's wrong no matter who does it. julie: i agree and i'm on the
record. in fact, i talked about that story that day when it happened and the news broke and i, as a woman, and as a human, you can be a man or a woman, that kind of talk is disgusting. and i don't want to hear it whether you are a president or my janitor. nancy, final word. >> it's tammy, but, yeah. julie: sorry. i was thinking about the women. >> i hear you. all of us were appalled at what was on that tape. to try to conflate rape and sexual assault with a guy who is being a jerk and saying the wrong things on a tape in locker room talk, it's inherently different. to conflate all of that is an insult to survivors of sexual assault across the board. what hillary said to that british interviewer, kudos to him for asking her, that's a lie. he's not admitted to being a sexual assaulter. it's a lie. it was a conversation that was
-- label it locker room talk or whatever it is, but that's what hillary does, is lie, apparently quite often. julie: thank you very much. >> thank you. >> thank you. kelly: we have an amazing story that you will want to see. it's of a wounded warrior that lost both of his legs. so why is he running, running one marathon every day for a month? >> i'm fighting the battles of veterans that come home and struggle. and so that's my battle. that's how i'm staying in the fight. that's how i'm continuing to fight america's battles. morning on the beach was so peaceful.
