12:00 pm
>> shepard: it noon on the west coast. 7:00 p.m. in moscow where the rushes retaliating. moscow is beating out 60 diplomats after the u.s. does the same. the kremlin closing an american consulate. now we're tracking the reaction. president trump holding his first public appearance in days. focusing on, well, improving america's infrastructure, or that was the plan. pushing to spend $200 billion to fix roads and brings. can he get congress on board? yeah, he congratulated roseanne as well. washington's culture has becomes toxic, chaotic and disrespectful. that from the former veterans
12:01 pm
affairs secretary, david shulkin after the president fired him on twitter. ahead, the latest shakeup. shulkin's response and what happens to the v.a. now. let's get to it. good afternoon. russian retaliation. moscow's foreign minister is announcing the kremlin is shutting down the consulate in st. petersburg and sending out 60 american. they say this is in response to other countries throwing out the russian diplomats. officials have called it the first chemical weapons attack on european soil since world war ii. monday, the white house gave 60 russian diplomats and their family as week to get out of the united states and said they plan
12:02 pm
to close the russian consulate in seattle. sergey lavrov accusing officials to follow an anti russian force. officials in moscows have denied any involvement in the attack. it's fox's top story. rich edson is live with more. >> the rush foreign minister, sergey lavrov summoned the u.s. ambassador to russia that 60 diplomats have april 5 to leave russia and the u.s. has to clear out their staff from the u.s. consulate in st. petersburg and do see by saturday. this is according of course to russia state media and we're still waiting on u.s. reaction to this. u.s. officials have been telling us the last few days that this was the anticipated and expected result. this is a rule in diplomacy.
12:03 pm
whatever a country does to your country, you do it to theirs. so earlier the united states kicked out 60 diplomats and closed the consulate that russian has in seattle. russia says they're expelling other diplomats. more than two dozen nations say they're kicking out russian diplomats in response to the nerve attack in the united kingdom. why russia says the consulate in st. petersburg? it because it's the most prestigious. the embassy in here in washington d.c. tweeted out a poll which u.s. consulate should they close in russia and st. peters won it handily, shep. >> shepard: we're hearing the victims in this are doing wetter. >> yeah. out of critical condition. the spies or the ex-spy's
12:04 pm
daughter is doing so. that's according to the hospital and that she's no longer in critical condition. the british government says they were poisoned with the nerve agent. now she's doing better, the russian government wants to talk with her, meet with her, perhaps to figure out -- the russian government has been denying this whole time it was a nerve agent and they're responsible for this and they demand evidence as to what the british have on this. this is simply just part of what the retaliation has gone now. it was that attack that prompted the u.k. to kick out russian diplomats. the russians now coming full circle. diplomacy at work, shep. >> shepard: thanks, rich. let's go to michael o'hanlan from the brookings institute. is that it? >> that's probably it for the moment. the fundamental issues are still there. anyplace from syria where
12:05 pm
hostilities continue and president assad bombards innocent civilians with russian support to the ukraine where the battle goes on for the help of the russian separatists and hundreds continue to die every few months to other parts of europe where russian planes and ships are buzzing or unsafely approaching nato capabilities. the new cold war lives on this. is one chapter in that broader story. >> shepard: pretend you're vladimir putin and you just used a nerve agent in an attempt to murder someone on european soil for the first time since world war ii and what you got was the expulsion of 150 of your spies. i mean, hhh. >> i hope he thinks twice. putin's world view is he thinks we took advantage of russian weakness in the decades after the cold war. we pushed our weight around in the middle ease with mediocre
12:06 pm
results in places like iraq and libya and we had to be taken down a peg. this is one part of the broader strategy. he doesn't strike me as a particularly contemplative guy that reassessed and reevaluated his previous decisions sometimes with a touch of guilt or regret. i don't think that's who he is. i'd be more likely to think that he might try to kill this guy in his hospital bed. god father style. so that would be my first instinct about where his head is today. >> shepard: i'm trying to think of why he would slow down. his people shot a jet out of the sky, he took over part of another country. the march seems to be on and seems to be almost -- well, with very little resistance. what would be something that the world community could do to maybe really slow him down? >> i think we are doing a lot of direct defense. in the baltic states, poland, nato has more forces. still not robust, but a
12:07 pm
substantial trip wire. we have other capabilities we're trying to build militarily to come in the need be. that kind of thing and hardening our electoral machinery against russian shenanigans like we saw in 2016 is crucial. worrying about cyber attacks. that's crucial. that has to continue. we need to walk and chew gum together. we need to think about whether there's any kind of broader dialogue to engage in over time. that might allow both sides to air their grievances and rethink the basic way in which eastern europe is being handled today. russia needs to get those forces off of those territories. we need to rethink our plans for nato expansion to the former so why it republics and a broader dialogue with the tougher measures that we undertake right now can begin to point us in the right direction. >> shepard: michael, thank you. >> thanks, shep. >> shepard: president trump's latest fired cabinet member is speaking out in a big way.
12:08 pm
not holding much of anything back. the former veterans affairs secretary david shulkin sounds off about his time in d.c. after the. showed him out the door with a tweet. as we do this time of day, we're watching the dow. she's on a tear! the dow is surging up 450 points on this session alone. approaching 1.9% on the session? what is doing it? tech is doing it, infrastructure stocks. we'll keep an eye on it as we race towards the closing well. this is fox news channel.

you can leave worry behind when liberty stands with you™ liberty mutual insurance. >> shepard: it's toxic and chaotic. that's what it is. that's how the ousted veterans affairs secretary david shulkin says the environment in d.c. hours after president trump fired him on twitter. the president picking the white house doctor, rear admiral ronny jackson to take his place. admiral jackson head the press conference about the president's health. david shulkin wrote, i'm very proud of my record and know that i acted with the it moves integrity. unfortunately, none of that mattered. as i prepare to leave government, i'm struck by a recurring thought. it should not be this hard to serve your country. the former v.a. secretary told npr that members of the trump
12:12 pm
administration want to privatize the v.a. and he was standing in the way. >> the appointees were trying to politicize the v.a. and trying to make sure that our progress stopped. it's been a very difficult environment. it's been one where we've been distracted from our mission. >> shepard: again that from npr. he was accused of accepting tickets to wimbledon. the former secretary did reimburse the v.a. and he says there's more to that story. he would have loved to tell it but they wouldn't let him. he said the whole thing was m mischaracteri mischaracterized. and today is the last day for hope hicks that has worked with the first family before the
12:13 pm
president ran for office. peter doocy is live in west palm beach, florida where he will spent the easter holiday. hello, peter. >> on air forbes one this afternoon, officials explain the president had been considering a few other candidates to become the v.a. secretary, but drdr. drdr. ron dr. ronny jackson kept rising to the top of the list. now the process is the normal senate confirmation process. many don't think that dr. jackson, the combat medic, is in any kind of disadvantage because of his lack of experience in bulky bureaucratic office buildings. >> we've had bureaucrats or individuals that understand -- kind of have the experience and the resume of hospital organizations or in the case of the obama administration general eric consecki to run the nda.
12:14 pm
>> and mr. shulkin said the trump administration wants to turn it into a privately run operation. he says -- >> president trump just a few minutes ago hinted at some big changes coming. >> we're going to have choice at the v.a. we're going to have choice for these great people. you're also going to have choice with jobs. you're going to have choice with jobs. our veterans will have choice. you're going to have choice with jobs.
12:15 pm
>> as the only obama administration man in the cabinet, shulkin is the odd man out and now he's out of a job. >> shepard: and the development in the case of the porn star with the president. >> right. a federal judge in los angeles ruled it would be premature or inappropriate at this stage for president trump or michael cohen to testify in the stormy daniels lawsuit, which the porn star filed because she's trying to void a nondisclosure agreement trying to conceal the details of a decades old affair that she had with businessman donald trump. but stormy daniels' lawyer says this is not over. he just tweeted a link to the judge's order and he wrote this. here's an order from the court denying our motion as premature on procedural grounds. they filed their motion to
12:16 pm
compel arbitration seeing to hide the fact from public i have. we expect this any day. so far no comment from the white house. shep? >> shepard: peter doocy live with us in south florida. thank you. let's go to jordan fabian, white house correspondent for the hill. these sorts of things, they keep the whole story alive. i'm guessing in that building behind you, they'd rather that not be the case. >> absolutely, shep. the president came out today to the south lawn. sometimes he wants to talk to us about the story of the day. he didn't do that. he's been hunkered down and not addressing the situation with stormy daniels as these questions continue to hover over here. we'll have to wait for another day. maybe a tweet. >> shepard: on the matter of the v.a. secretary, we keep saying, you know, he found out about it through a tweet. it's actually how we found out about it. we're told the main man at the white house told him. the man that is being appointed
12:17 pm
will have to go through the confirmation process is the doctor that came on that day with the -- the presidential health conference. >> all data indicates the president is very healthy and he will remain so for the duration of his presidency. some people have, you know, just great genes. i told the president if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years, he might live to be 200 years old. he has good genes. that's the way god made him. >> dr. jackson, he's taking cholesterol medication. he has evidence of heart disease and borderline obese. can you characterize that as excellent health? >> his heart is very healthy. >> it was what it was. it's well-established the president likes to hear good things about the president. he heard good things from this doctor and now the veterans administration and its 341,000 employees are in the president's estimation to be run by a man who has never really run
12:18 pm
anything like that. i wonder if there's concern. >> there is, shep. that's the number 1 question for dr. jackson. when he goes before the senate for the confirmation hearings, we're hearing from members like tammy duckworth that want to know what qualifications this doctor has to run the second largest federal cabinet agency. it's a huge undertaking. i note that dr. jackson is well-liked on both sides of the aisle. he took care of president obama and president trump. i don't think people dislike him. there's questions whether he's prepared for this kind of undertaking. he has to talk about that and talk about where he stands on this contentious issue about privatization at the v.a. he's been sharing some advice where he wants to see the agency go. the public doesn't know what he told the president. >> shepard: you can say all you want about trips to wimbledon. the problem with shulkin was, shulkin didn't want to v.a. to be privatized.
12:19 pm
that was a nonstarter. one would suspect if that's what the president wants, that would be what this doctor wants. i guess we'll find out in the hearings. are we expecting those to be contentious? >> shepard: i think so. the threshold for nominees has been lowered to 50. he's going to save some tough questions because he doesn't have the type of background the past v.a. nominees have had and this issue of privatization is so contentious with even some republicans not being a fan of it. so he's going to get some tough questions about that and he's going to have to have good answers for senators. >> shepard: jordan fabian, thanks. >> thanks. >> shepard: president trump out and about for the first time in days really. the president talking about infrastructure and -- man, one of those campaign rally kind of things. he talked about a little bit of everything. i guess the last hour, i don't
12:20 pm
know -- we don't have control over them but they left it. he got to roseanne's ratings and you name it. they covered it today. it was big, big, big. live report on that from ohio coming up. ♪ gas, bloating, constipation and diarrhea can start in the colon and may be signs of an imbalance of good bacteria. only phillips' colon health has this unique combination of probiotics. it helps replenish good bacteria. get four-in-one symptom defense. i'm a fighter. always have been. when i found out i had age-related macular degeneration, amd, i wanted to fight back. my doctor and i came up with a plan. it includes preservision. only preservision areds 2

12:24 pm
h he talked about investing $200 billion federal dollars which would obligate state and local governments to spend $1.5 trillion on crumbling infrastructure. he put some pressure on congress to move legislation so the jobs can get started in the first place. here's the president. >> congress now has the opportunity to build on this momentum and to act on a common sense plan that will make our economy stronger, our roads faster and our families safer. we want a safe country. we want safety. >> up to 400,000 jobs the white house says will be created. above average pay. according to the president, 32% above average for the skilled
12:25 pm
trades. the president touched on something that is a familiar refrain. 40% of the bridges you drive over were built before man walked on the moon. >> shepard: wow. that's a stat. >> sherrod brown from ohio said there's no guarantee that the 400,000 jobs would go to americans first. you heard the president talk about america first, but he didn't really say anything that would link prioritization of those jobs. you heard other members of congress criticize that if you put so much pressure on the state and local governments, they'll respond with new tolls, new taxes. they might sell off assets to meet this obligation of 1.5 trillion, shep. >> shepard: mike tobin. the white house lawyer on the russian investigation speaking out in a rare interview. he said attorneys have no choice but to cooperate with a special counsel. we'll tell you why and what else he had to say.
12:26 pm

12:31 pm
>> shepard: for the first time in more than a decade, leaders of north and south korea are set to meet face to face. kim jong-un and the south korean president scheduling a summit for next month. the last time anything like that happened was 2007 when kim jong-un's father, kim jung il was still in power. the white house says president trump plans to hold his own summit with kim jong-un in may. a sitting u.s. president has never met with a leader of north korea. president trump said he may delay a trade agreement that the united states just reached with south korea until he cuts a peace deal with north korea. >> north korea, we'll see what happens.
12:32 pm
certainly the rhetoric has calmed down a little bit. wouldn't you say? wouldn't you say? we'll see how it turns out. maybe it will be good and maybe it won't. if it's not good, we're walking. if it's good, we will embrace it. >> shepard: kim jong-un was in beijing earlier this week meeting with the president xi. it was his first trip outside of north korea. the top white house lawyer on the russia investigation opening up about his job in a rare interview. ty cobb is his name. he tells vox that lawyers for the white house and president trump have to cooperate with the special counsel. otherwise, robert mueller and his team will subpoena. that's how it works. he also explain that he has to make sure that the white house deals with the special counsel in a "honorable, ethical and responsible way." zachary bigs. he's with us. he interviewed ty cobb.
12:33 pm
good to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> shepard: how did he seem? he read it a couple times. did he seem angry, annoyed? how would you say it? >> i'd say he seemed relaxed a you'lly. >> shepard: good. >> if you looked through the transcript, he was casually describing his job and the situation the white house is in. >> shepard: the part with how you deal with a special counsel was interesting in its simplicity. >> yeah, he views his job as being particularly simple. keep in house that he's a white house lawyer. he's not trump's personal lawyer. as a result, that means he's on the taxpayer payroll. he has to fulfill the responsibilities of that building that means moving documents. means setting up interviews and straightforward cooperation with the mueller probe. >> shepard: he was talking about what would happen if you don't just fully cooperate in a sort of transparent way.
12:34 pm
>> yes. he was talking about ostensively that if you do cooperate, muleler get the documents anyway. there's legal authorities that he has to subpoena for documents. so you might as well negotiate and attempt to control some of that paper now, which is one of the big points he was making that they just haven't handed everything over, but they have done it in a conscientious manner and there's not been major friction. >> shepard: here's a quote on that on cooperating with the special counsel. "you don't have much choice, he said, otherwise they subpoena. as people have paid attention that notice, there's been no subpoenas, no grand jury subpoenas. this has all gone in a smooth way." he went on "you haven't heard any complaints from mueller and everything is negotiated heavily. it's not like we open up the file drawer and let them get what they want." he saying you have to go through
12:35 pm
a process and we've done it. >> he's saying they have cooperated and protected his job of the presidency by making sure the requests are reasonable. at the same time, we haven't heard much complaining from mueller. in terms of him lamenting things, mueller is keeping things close to the vest. >> shepard: and pretty close. and he said there's several things that slowed down the russia investigation. the reality is, i never actually said it would be over soon. i said it could be over soon. it got baked into the narrative that i was somehow trying to appease the president. that's just not true. that has been the narrative the last couple weeks. you go up and down the dial and look at the website, he's appeasing the president by saying it's almost over. i went back and he said i didn't say that. he said it could be. >> right. he's making a point elsewhere in
12:36 pm
the interview when he talks about the events that have occurred. whether it's the wolf book that caused a new round of interviews a potential i.g. investigation that we're expecting on comey and mccabe. when those things come out create a whole other round of interviews and documents. as we continue to have events, the probe continues on. >> shepard: zachary bigs is here from vox.com. check it out. thank you. >> thanks for having me. >> shepard: president trump criticizing amazon this morning again. a day after a report that he's obsessed with the company and looking for ways to go after it. today the president tweeted, i have stated my concerns with amazon long before the election. unlike others, they pay little or no taxes to state and local governments, use our postal system as a delivery boy causing loss to the united states and putting thousands of retailers out of business.
12:37 pm
the first two things there are just wrong. amazon opened the day down, but it's back up now. at one point some $50 billion of market value was out. amazon's founder and ceo jeff bezos owns the "washington post," which president trump offer criticizes on twitter. raj shah told fox news today that president's criticism of amazon is not related to its founder. he said it's about tax policy and creating a level playing field for mom and pops. let's go to deidra bolton. i want to go through them one by one. hang on. first of all, the thing about the post office and the thing about taxes are as wrong as wrong could ever be. the post office is open on the weekends sometimes just because of amazon and all of the 39 states that require taxes, they pay it. what is he talking about? >> just mic drop and walk away. >> shepard: what is he talking about? who is advising them?
12:38 pm
they're opposite to the truth. >> you mentioned the hours. even the shipping, the post office makes money on that part of its activity. what weighs down the post office are actually the high costs of labor, the pension and paying into the future health care of the workers. as far as the taxes go, there's no business that paying more tax than it is legally required to do so. amazon is no different. so it never broke any laws that i know of. so in the u.s., amazon did not collect sales in states where it didn't have a physical shop. so there are a few tweaks here. where amazon is building warehouses to be closer to consumers, that i have a physical presence, amazon says they must collect taxes and it is. as of last year, they're collecting state taxes on products in all 45 states, which are the ones that have a state sales tax. where there was a little wiggle
12:39 pm
room for allison was taxes for its third-party platform sellers goods and amazon was not collecting those. however, some states are starting to close the gap. they're starting to pass laws to address that. so as of april 1, amazon is instituting this marketplace tax collection for third party sellers. all questions answered. amazon has been clever. if you go back to the founding story, it's cool trivia. jeff bezos in 1995 didn't want seattle as the headquarters. he wanted an indian reservation outside of san francisco. because that would have been a lower tax. california didn't allow that to happen. >> shepard: reedy creek directment anybody? >> he's not the richest man in the world for nothing. he didn't trip into that. he's had a strategy for decades. >> shepard: great to see you. >> thank you. >> shepard: stocks are higher.
12:40 pm
huge. it wasn't that long ago, they were at 470. give it five minutes. it will go whichever way you want it to. the s&p and the nasdaq on track for the quarterly losses in years. today is the last trading day of the month and the quarter on wall street. the markets are closing tomorrow for good friday ahead of the easter holiday. we're up about 1.5%. if you have that every day that would be boring, wouldn't it? the dow is on track to end a streak of gains and the s&p could see its quarterly loss of 2016. gerri willis is here. >> things are good. this way anything could happen. i like boring. >> shepard: i do, too. >> what is going on. if you like those tech stocks that deidra was talking about, facebook, amazon, listen up. i have a whole other sector for you that is on fire. >> it is. >> and we're going to talk about
12:41 pm
the industrial industries. u.s. steel, steel makers, construction, engineering, have you heard of orion? maybe not. these are stocks doing well. terms. u.s. concrete. how pedestrian is that? construction equipment. you want a backhoe, who do you call? caterpillar. these stocks on fire. 4%, 5%. doing better than the dow. >> shepard: have you been in a tall building in this town and looked around at the cranes? there might be 150 cranes in this town. new york is exploding. >> it's not just new york. i was in charleston. that city, they're building everywhere. >> shepard: all of that said, we have to get reality. all three major indices are on track for the worst month of march in like 17 years. but that's not how you look at this thing. look at it over a stretch. still -- >> yeah. it's a data point. a lot of people concerned about this. mostly concerned about the voltity coming into this.
12:42 pm
my answer to that is here's what's happening, here's why everything is so dicey. the markets don't like it when you have to reconsider fundamentals like the assumptions of the market. you think you know what happens with tariffs? maybe not. the president is changing the rules. what has happened to facebook and technology. that's making everybody reconsider technology. at the end of the day, can we have the kind of year like last year where the stocks went up, up, up? one smart trader said gerri, stocks don't grow to the sky. >> and the bean stalks. >> shepard: we're playing arkansas tonight. the right direction would be get to the field. i'm stuck here. boo. it's all right. thank you. good to see you. did the widow of the man responsible for one of the deadliest mass shootings in the united states history help him prepare for the attack on the
12:43 pm
pulse nightclub? or was she clueless about all of thinks plans? that is the fundamental question which jurors are working to answer right now. but they've also had some questions of their own. the aftermath of pulse nightclub shooting in orlando and the trial of the widow underway. mitzi: psoriatic arthritis tries to get in my way? watch me. ( ♪ )
12:44 pm
mike: i've tried lots of things for my joint pain. now? watch me. ( ♪ ) joni: think i'd give up showing these guys how it's done? please. real people with active psoriatic arthritis are changing the way they fight it. they're moving forward with cosentyx. it's a different kind of targeted biologic. it's proven to help people find less joint pain and clearer skin. don't use if you are allergic to cosentyx. before starting cosentyx you should be checked for tuberculosis. an increased risk of infections and lowered ability to fight them may occur. tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms of an infection. or if you have received a vaccine, or plan to. if you have inflammatory bowel disease tell your doctor if symptoms develop or worsen. serious allergic reactions may occur. mitzi: with less joint pain, watch me. for less joint pain and clearer skin, ask your rheumatologist about cosentyx.
12:45 pm
12:46 pm
>> shepard: breaking news. we're getting our first statement in from the united
12:47 pm
states on the actions of russia. russia expelled like 150 diplomats, including 60 from the united states and closed down a consulate in st. petersburg. our ambassador just put out a statement saying there's no justification for russia's retallatory move to expel 60 diplomats and shutter the consulate in st. petersburg. heather nauert said russia shouldn't be acting like a vick till. she says the united states reserves the right to respond to russia's response. that's been the concern. where does it end? we don't know. russia kicked out the diplomats after the u.s. and other nations
12:48 pm
