9:00 am
>> president trump on his way to michigan later today. he'll be holding a rally with his supporters in the heartland. the optics looking much different from washington media's biggest black tie event of the year. leland: and the difference between the north and south korean leaders on the dmz. the president says he's getting ready for his high stakes talks with the hermit kingdom leader. elizabeth: there's outrage in england. a baby's life comes to a very sad end, this, after the government there says it wasn't worth keeping him alive. ♪ and happy saturday, thank you
9:01 am
for joining us, welcome to america's news headquarters from washington. i'm elizabeth prann. leland: great to be with you, and great to be with you at home on this saturday, i'm leland vittert. the president demanding the resignation of a democratic senator as the white house continues their defense of one times veterans affair nominee ronny jackson. the tweet comes hours before the president snubs the washington media elite and heads to michigan for a rally. alison barber, north lawn of the white house on this beautiful saturday. hi. >> hi, leland. that's right, president trump is calling on a sitting u.s. senator to resign over allegations he publicly discussed regarding president trump's now former nominee to head the department of veteran affairs. in a series of tweets, writes in part, allegations made by senator john tester against admiral ron jackson are false. they deny any of the phony
9:02 am
democrat charges. tester should resign. jackson faced accusations over prescribing medication or claims that he overprescribed medication and wrecking a car after drinking at a going away party. the white house says they've reviewed jackson's driving records and found no evidence of that incident. jackson denied it as well. president trump addressed the accusations during a press conference with german chancellor angela merkel. >> these were false accusations about a great man, about a man who has a son who is a top student at annapolis, about a man that's given his life to this country and to the military, with brave man. he would have been a great leader. >> trump hosted merkel at the white house days after hosting french president emmanuel macron. a key topic for both visits, an iran nuclear deal. he said he would leave without may 12th without any major changes and merkel and macron
9:03 am
want the u.s. to stick with the deal. >> we are of the opinion that the gcpoa is a first step that has contributed to slowing down their activities in this particular respect. >> we must ensure that this murderous regime does not even get close to a nuclear weapon and that iran ends its proliferation of dangerous missiles and its support for terrorism. >> absent a substantial fix, absent overcoming the shortcomings, the flaws of the deal, he is unlikely to stay in that deal past this may. >> later this evening, president trump is heading to michigan for a campaign rally. he declined an invitation to the annual white house correspondent's dinner which is set to take place tonight. the rally is set to take place at the same time in place of president trump going, this is of course the second year he's missed it. white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders will attend that dinner. right now, leland, president trump is at trump national golf course and expected to leave for
9:04 am
michigan about 4:00 this afternoon. leland: all right, thank you. speaking of michigan, let's bring in michigan-based radio host steve gruber. nice to see you. the president tweeting before he headed out to his golf course, looking forward to be in the great state of michigan. no argument about great, happen to love michigan as well. and major expansion of jobs in your state. and auto expanding in your state. fair assessment? >> it's a great time looking for a job no question. and what do you say about donald trump's first two years. help wanted. every place has help wanted. 10,000, roads, construction and bridges and infrastructure. that's how much michigan has come back and it's part of the
9:05 am
trump economy. leland: economists will tell you though that this is is a result of the economic expansion that occurred over the past couple of years, it wasn't just january 2017 that michigan suddenly had help wanted sides. that may be the economic reality. do people in michigan give president trump credit or are they looking back to president obama. >> i can tell you the people of michigan are giving credit for coming here today. instead of canned jokes to correspondents. michigan is one of the keys to winning in 2016 for the president, it will be again in 2018, 2020. the job market here, the credit goes to the president. let's be honest. there's an optimism, not only in michigan, but in ohio, pennsylvania, wisconsin, the states that were key for him to claim the white house in 2016, key again this year and key in 2020. i would say this leland, is that not too many people that i've talked to, in fact, nobody says
9:06 am
they wished donald trump hadn't won the presidency, they have a confidence in him, they have a support of him and you will see tonight in washington township, it will be packed. it will be standing room only. leland: all right, we've seen standing room only at a number of the president's rallies. no surprise he's coming to michigan. big senate race, one of the ten senate seats that is held by a democrat in the state that president trump won. here right now are the candidates, obviously, you have debby stabenow, the incumbent democratic senator, and then screen center, screen right, is mr. james and mr. pensler who are running for the republican nomination. how big are president trump's coat tails when it comes to michigan? >> well, we'll find out. debby stabenow has been a formidable candidate for years, 18 million i believe she has in the war chest. look at john james, worked in the military, successful business man and sandy pensler and put in money of of his own and ads for president trump, supporting him 100% across the
9:07 am
board. sandy pensler i would think that he has a bit of an edge because of the finances. leland: steve, square this for me. one hand you say that folks in michigan give president trump so much credit and they love the fact that there's low unemployment and there's 10,000 new construction jobs, and all of that credit goes to a republican donald trump. how come debby stabenow would have a chance against that? >> well, michigan's one of those split states. a purple state, if you will. we often send a democratic senators to washington, but if you look at our congressional delegation, nine of the 14 are republicans. so, it's a state that can go either way, as we learned in november of 2016 when michigan was carried by the president by just over 10,000 votes. it's a close call here in michigan, but what people see in donald trump a he is not worried about short-term popularity. he's worried about results. leland: really? >> he's not governing by polling, he's worried about putting like the tax cuts, not popular to begin with, but now getting more popular every day.
9:08 am
that's the key to winning michigan. leland: all right. and fair. as we wrap this up, you paint a very rosie picture for president trump in the way michiganders respond to him. the question is, then, how do republicans screw this up, whether it's pensler or james, how do they not screw up the support of trump's supporters and at the same time capitalize against stabenow? >> there are things to think about. first of all, leland, you'll appreciate this. i talk to people all the time on the radio program, out in public. i don't run across anybody, not even democrats who say boy, i sure wish hillary was president. you don't hear that. leland: hillary is not on the ballot in 2018. >> i think that donald trump is going to do well as far as supporting candidates in michigan and that's why he's here in washington township today. i think that it is a solid picture for the president. it's a record of results where there's the tax cuts, the economy and what's going on in north korea cannot be understated, it's a big deal, a huge deal, a nobel prize worthy deal on the world stage, so foreign policy, domestic policy,
9:09 am
this president really is hitting on all cylinders for a lot of folks here in michigan. leland: well, all cylinders has so many meanings in the state of michigan. steve, appreciate you being with us. interesting perspective as always. >> thank you. leland: thank you, as steve promised, standing room only he says during president trump's rally in michigan and if you don't want to stand up at the rally feel free to tune in here to fox tuesday channel. coverage begins 7 p.m. eastern right here, the remarks live as they happen. elizabeth: a joint declaration between north and south korea to work toward formally ending a decades long war is hailed as a new milestone today by north korean state media. president trump also tweeting this morning that things are going very well on the korean peninsula. our own greg palkot is in seoul with the latest. hi, greg. >> hi, elizabeth. it is the day after that historic interkorean summit that involved of course between kim
9:10 am
jong-un and south korean president moon jae-in. probably most significant was the reaction from the north. there was coverage today of the summit in state-controlled tv and in newspapers and they included mention of north korea's pledge to get rid of its nukes, they actually used the world to their public, denuclearization. here in seoul, cautious optimism, especially that commitment to sign a peace treaty to formally end the korean war, that's gone on for so many years now and other measures to ease the tensions across the border. the meeting on friday was also seen as an important warm-up for the planned summit between kim jong-un and president trump. the president tweeted this today, just had a long and very good talk about president moon in south korea, things are going very well, time and location of meetings is being set. and also spoke to prime minister abe of japan to inform him of ongoing negotiations. here is the take of one analyst
9:11 am
about that upcoming summit. take a listen. i see a good possibility of good chemistry between donald trump and kim jong-un, they're unconventional figures and prize interpersonal relations so i think there's a good chance when they get in that room, donald trump and kim jong-un can make a deal. >> we will see. just in the past couple of minutes, elizabeth, we've gotten word that defense secretary mattis has spoken with his counterpart in south korea in the wake of the summit talking about a range of issues. one more note, analyst does give a lot of credit to president trump for getting talks with north korea to this point, but he warns, like a lot of people, just beginning the process and that process, at least a few times in the past, has gone wrong. back to you, elizabeth. elizabeth: that's right, of course. thank you, appreciate it. here to weigh in, fox news national security and foreign policy analyst walid phares.
9:12 am
you've heard greg palkot say that this has gone wrong in the past. my first question, what exactly does he want, and i'm speaking of kim jong-un and also, as these conversations continue, if they continue, how can we sort of decipher progress? >> that's a very good question. that's the question of the day. the north korean leader, or dictator, wants basically to protect his regime, and he's measuring how much he's going to be paying for this. stopping the missile test, he could do that. maybe start to redirect the program, he could do that. the thing, his red line, would be do not touch my regime, it's a one-party regime and that's the challenge, there could be changes on the ground. north koreans could be given possibilities and that could be a risk for him. elizabeth: there was one statement put out this morning, nuclear-free zone, peninsula, if you will. my question to you would mean that would probably include probably the 28,000 troops in south korea to leave and that's probably never going to happen?
9:13 am
>> it could, but, yes, at this point in time the 20,000 troops are basically facing the military troops to the north. so, it's really the task forces that we have in the ocean, versus the missiles. so if you look at it from a balance of power, if he disarms his missiles then we could redeploy: if he would listen his military in the north, we could redeploy. the major question that i have here, how do we measure that he's going to that direction. we have the military monitoring, of course, and surveillance, very strict, but also the most important factor, will he allow his citizens to visit the south? that will be a mainly game changer. elizabeth: i can't even imagine that. i'm sort of curious on who has the upper hand going into the meetings and as we go into the meetings, would he sort of tread lightly and maybe not ask for sanctions to be released immediately? would he start sort of lowering the bar, if you will? >> normally he will ask for everything he wants to ask for
9:14 am
and then, of course-- >> he read art of the deal, maybe. >> yes, maybe translated to him, but remember, there's also china behind him. he has been prepped by the china during his visits so they will be basically doing the larger negotiation with us, with the united states, and he will be part of that negotiation, basically. >> before you go, i do want to shift to sort of a larger foreign policy outlook. obviously, it was a big week with the white house, we saw the french president, saw the german chancellor. what's your take away this week on where we stand in the world? >> well, basically the two european leaders were here for one specific issue, the iran deal. they feel that the president and his administration are heading towards withdrawing from the deal. they feel there's a majority in congress and the american public who do not trust the deal. what they're trying to do, convince the president, look, we have an alternative for you, we have another deal, but do not let go of the deal before having the alternative. and i think the president's
9:15 am
position is, first i'll withdraw from the deal, but i'm ready to renegotiate so it puts pressure on him at this point in time. elizabeth: he's making that decision on may 12th. >> he's making the decision on may 12th formally. i don't know if he's already made the decision. it's up to him. elizabeth: thank you for coming on. >> thank you. elizabeth: be sure to watch fox news sunday for the latest from the korean peninsula. chris wallace will talk to national security advisor john bolton. of course, check your listings for time and channel and the fox news channel tomorrow at 11 a.m. howie kirtz and his guest will talk about the coverage of the president's rally tonight in michigan. leland: all right, the terminally ill british lawyer t at-- british boy at the center of an intense battle, the life of alfi evans and his parents. >> it was a heart breaking battle, it ended 2:30 this morning british times.
9:16 am
five days after medical staff removed him from life support. his parents confirming his death through social media, his mother kate james writing, our boy, our baby boy, grew his wings tonight at 2:30 a.m. we are heartbroken. thank you, everyone, for all of your support. >> tom evans who became the fairs of anguish during the months of legal struggles. my gladiator laid down his shield and laid down his wings, heartbroken. and we heard from all over the world, including pope francis, who the father met with to pressure them to let him go for care. the pope talks about the importance of like-minded care for all of creation. >> in this situation, it is fundamental that we improve our awareness of the ethical responsibility in respect of mankind, and the environment in which we live. >> and earlier, the pope tweeted, i am deeply moved by
9:17 am
the death of little alfi and hopes that god the father takes him in his embrace. he suffered from an inunnamed neurological condition. and he spent a year and a half at the doctor in liverpool. and the doctors said his condition was hopeless and he should be allowed to die. the british court system ruled on behalf of the staff. and they said the british authorities had the authority to usurp the parents' wishes. and they made piece with the hospital staff so alfie's stay could be in peace. >> bill cosby will be on house arrest as he awaits sentencing. he must wear a gps tracking device and only allowed to leave

. elizabeth: well, welcome back. >> new information about the russian lawyer who met with the trump family before the election. she sometimes is an informant for the kremlin. they release a final report on the year long investigation into alleged russian election meddling. fox news correspondent, gillian turner went through the report and also has more on this russian lawyer. >> hi, leland. so the report from republicans on the intel committee largely exonerates the trump and clinton campaigns and confirms russia did interfere in the election and roundly condemns the u.s. intelligence community and also accuses president obama's intel chief of lying, what information they shared with journalists and when. and roads in part, former dni clapper denied the reporting the
9:33 am
dossier, with journalists, but subsequently acknowledged discussing the dossier with journalist jake tapper and admits he might have spoken with other journalists on the same topic. the president was quick to embrace reports favorable to him and steered clear of the finding that both campaigns exhibited, quote, poor judgment. >> i was very honored by the report. it was totally conclusive, strong, powerful, but what we really should do is get on with the our lives and get on with a lot of things. >> washington's report reads as a rorschach test. it seems to depend in large measure on their political disposition. several democrats zeroing in on what they deemed the serious nature of the investigation. >> it's basically a kindergarten report. it was a light once-over. >> while some republicans are using this has an opportunity to underscore their own particular
9:34 am
grievances with the process. mike conway released a statement in part, i'm extremely disappointed with the overzealous redactions made by the ic. many of the redactions include information that's publicly available, such as witness names and information previously declassified. my team and i will continue to challenge the ic's many unnecessary redactions with the release of the report in coming months. what's abundantly clear, leland, folks on both sides of the island are eager to complain about the report, but none seem to take responsibility for it happening. leland: shocking, it would never would happen in washington before. >> sorry to shock you so early on a saturday. leland: we've been up for a while. thanks, gillian. >> we're very proud of the job we've done for the veterans. the veterans, we've gotten accountability approved, which is something that for years, for years, they've been trying to get and i will tell you, we're getting choice, we're putting choice in very, very strongly
9:35 am
and we have tremendous support in the senate for that. >> well, the department now is the fourth secretary in four years. they're awaiting president trump painting a positive picture made of the veterans administration and those with firsthand knowledge are not so sold. they say many of the problems still exist and without a leader, the va will continue to flounder. the one who blew the whistles on the horrendous conditions that veterans were facing, we're awaiting the fourth secretary in four years, what's your take on this week? >> well, it's been very interesting. i'm not surprised that-- given the allegations of what happened, but i would hope that they would move forward and that the president would consider other nominations. i think the best that would be to go with jeff miller, the former, the former head of the
9:36 am
veterans house affairs committee because he's very, very familiar with the va. elizabeth: that's what i was going to ask you, there has been some vocal supporters. if i'm not mistaken, he was interested in the job in the beginning and was even interviewed for it, is that correct. >> i don't know if he was interviewed, but i know that his name was certainly mentioned there. he is intimately familiar with the va and he would not be going into this job with rose colored glasses he'd be going in with a binocular in one arm and a microscope in the other. elizabeth: that's sort of what i was going to ask you. here is a thankless gig with a huge responsibility and the va continues to be plagued with issue because there hasn't been anyone at the helm in a while who has been able to focus on the task at hand so i want to ask you, what do we know about this, this congressman from florida, and how would he take the va in another direction? >> well, if it wasn't for jeff miller, you wouldn't know about this story and you wouldn't know who i was. his committee, especially
9:37 am
garri garrick, they were investigating the va long before i got into the picture. and he has diligently worked against the va stonewalling him all the time and without his efforts, again, you wouldn't know my name. elizabeth: you know, you had brought up an interesting point, you said 15 years ago there were, what, 900 va administrators. today, how many are there, sir? >> close to 10,000 and very few of them contribute to actual clinical work. the overhead is just tremendous and i would not see that in the private sector. you need more worker bees and less supervisors. elizabeth: that's sort of what-- that's what i'm going for here. with would the florida congressman go in that direction? if so, what would he be up against? >> he would be up against the va bureaucracy who has been hard on the last three secretaries to say the least. but i really do think that he could drain the swamp there and
9:38 am
get the job done and get the focus back. and in terms of, you know, the va, they still have a nationwide mismatch between their ability to deliver care and the demand for it. probably 60 to 70% of veterans like going to the va, but if you live in flagstaff and you have heart trouble, you know, it would be much better to be able to go to the heart center there, which is ten minutes from your house, rather than have to be sent down to phoenix two hours away and then another two hours to tucson, the only heart center in arizona. elizabeth: i want to end up on a personal note and you had firsthand experience and you were the whistleblower who brought this to light. how does it feel that there is no one in charge right now for all the men and women looking for care? >> the ship is floundering at sea. we need a new captain to plot a course and take it somewhere where it can be most effective. elizabeth: all right, thank you for joining us, sir, we really
9:39 am
appreciate it. >> thank you very much for having me. leland: democrats say the economic boom has left many behind. the numbers, perhaps, paint a different picture. what it means for the mid terms. plus, teachers in arizona are the latest to join nationwide protests against low pay. how they plan to fight for more public funding, what it means for your wallet when we come back. >> we want to get back in the classrooms and that's just a really big point that we want to make because we don't want to be here. we love our kids. we miss our kids.
9:40 am
9:41 am
9:42 am
9:43 am
>> teachers across the united states are fed up. if you look green-- screen left. they're looking at inadequate funding in arizona. and in denver, governor john
9:44 am
hiken looper says they would look to repay what waste borrowed during the recession. teachers in west virginia, oklahoma are protesting low pay and lack of funding. leland: president trump tweeting this morning ahead of his trip to michigan that jobs are pouring back in and auto companies are expanding he says at a record pace. and democrats, they say that main street has been left behind. and new fox polling data shows 32% of the voters believe the economy will get better over the next year. 27% though say it will get worse. here to talk about it, chief editor of dow jones news wires, good friend glen hall, nice to see you, you guys study this at a granular level and it seems you've got to dig pretty deep these days to find bad economic
9:45 am
data. >> yeah, there's just hints of it, right? so the first quarter gdp numbers just came out a little slower than the growth we had at the end of last year and that's normal for the first quarter. it depends on whether you want to see it half full and half empty. and pullback in consumer sentiment and it's at historically high levels. and then you talk about the tax cut impact and people say on the democrats side. well, it wasn't enough, people aren't feeling it in their paychecks yet, but there is still an improvement in the paychecks for most people. so, you're fighting around the edges there. leland: you guys have reporters who are not only covering sort of the corporate side of this in the expansion and also the effect of everyday americans and how they're spending. are people acting like the economy is better or not? >> we've been seeing the consumer pretty robustly spending over the last many months. even though there might have been a slowdown in the first quarter, it's still solid. what was really interesting, we saw a big increase in business
9:46 am
spending and building up of inventory so they think there will be more consumer spending down the road. >> so, businesses are betting, essentially, that things are going to get better. >> that's right. after the first quarter, an a big spike in growth across the country, so, you know, i think it's going to be hard to counter the narrative that the economy is better now than it was a year ago. leland: that's certainly the narrative we're hearing from the president and the supporters. we had a michigan talk radio host on a little earlier giving him full credit and say that people in the state give him full credit. the reason to talk about this is essentially from a political standpoint. there are ten democratic seats in states that were won by president trump. and here are the tossups held by a democratic senator. west virginia 5.4%. national unemployment 4.1%. in all, but one of those states held by democrats the unemployment rate is below the national average. in north dakota, 2.6% they're

having trouble finding anybody to do anything. you've got to pay bonuses to get people to work at mcdonald's. you know, if president trump gets on the stump you're better off two years ago than now, if you're better off vote republican, i'll do more for you, how do you counter that? >> just on the historical battle front, the democrats have 25 seats in the senate to defend and the republicans only have eight so the odds are stacked against them. it's not likely. in the house we historically see as the new president comes in in the first term losses in the house. if not, guaranteed there have been times it goes the otther way. if the economy is feeling good, the consumer is feeling good, do you rock the boat? >> the other time it went the other way, post 9/11, 2002. and you had the republicans keep the majorities post 9/11 and that was sort of a negative shock that sort of brought people over to george w. bush's side. if the economy continues to be
9:48 am
on fire and there's a positive shock, any reporting or historical data that they give republicans credit for that? >> it will come down to the districts in a lot of ways. and there again, largely they're stacked in favor of the republicans in the house so the democrats are unlikely to pick off 24 seats they would need to claim the house, but the house may lose its majority. it's tricky for the republicans, it's tenuous how to get that in their party and to get the job done. leland: how cohesive has the republican messaging been on it's the economy, stupid. the economy is doing really well. reelect us? >> that's been tenuous as well. i think you'll see as the economy improves. it's likely to see faster growth in the coming quarters and that's been the pattern. when you see that you'll embrace that because that's a good talking point in an election cycle. >> we certainly think that president trump, when the stock market was running up, he was

military. he would've been a great leader. >> the reports we heard as he treated those above him well, he treated those below the very poorly thus creating a toxic work environment. it's not surprising the president and those who that's from the president with think he's doing a really good job. once again, we need to get to the bottom of it. >> koester has not responded to the tweet. mr. trump is at the trump national golf course. not clear what he's doing but he was seen in a golf outfit. later he's heading to michigan for a campaign rally that said to take place during the annual white house correspondents dinner. president trump declined to attend the dinner for the second year in a row. his press secretary will be there in his place.

it seemed like there was a acceptance that the iran deal -- >> elizabeth: my question with the president from what you learned maybe he doesn't make decisions like that immediately. says something that could change? >> it is something that could change. he prides himself on flexibility. he can zigzag in ways that experts are sometimes taken aback by. >> elizabeth: the optics of this evening, you better washington for quite some time the second year in a row where we don't see the president at the white house press. >> i think that's a smart decision for mr. trump. i think it is easily cast it's much better politically for him to be in michigan speaking to

>> it started out with about 1500 immigrants from central america, honduras, el salvador and guatemala. that's been paired down to about 340. we expect 200 to claim asylum tomorrow. there are three different groups of three different locations to get legal advice. they're in a seminar behind me. so what is credible if you're really mean and what evidence do you need to present. also do you want to go through with this? these families are likely to be separated. they could be in detention from weeks to months. they could be prosecuted if they lie or commit fraud or present false evidence. this is what we're told what they heard from the lawyers yesterday.
10:12 am
>> they are informing us on what we have to do before surrounding ourselves. i think it's fine. if we go without information it will be worse. they're telling us what we have to and what not to do. >> remember, they're not going through the border over the fence. they're presenting themselves legally at the port of entry. they will not have a lawyer with them at the time. they're trying to get their story state straight on what to say and what evidence might be accepted. it's been high-profile and symbolic of the amount of illegal immigration coming out because of violence. i have some statistics all share. this group of 200 or 300 is a drop in the bucket. these are numbers from october today. guatemala 9000 immigrants.
10:13 am
unaccompanied children and families. 5000 honduras, 2000 from el salvador. a continuing problem. one reason they want to make an example is to send a message south that this will not continue. where expecting a news conference in the morning. then they'll go to the port of entry and ask for silent. we don't know how they will do its, we are told they can handle about 100 asylum claims per day. >> elizabeth: thank you. >> leland: it's been hot but political issue here. working to bring in a policy analyst at the heritage foundation. the question is what william brought up. how does the government separate those from those who want a better life and come here from

jobs versus those who are in places like el salvador and honduras with real fear of gangs and violence, kidnapping and everything else. >> the main issue at hand is the precedence it was sent if we were allow. >> the presidents talk about 15000 people lead and in the past year was another 300. >> regardless of the number we cannot set it as precedent regardless even though it's a smaller amount it's still a number that should not allowed into the country. if they do meet the claims of credible fear or qualifying for silent than shirt. but if that's not the case they should be letting. >> are people lead and that don't meet those criteria?
10:15 am
>> custom importers protection and homeland security officials determine the. >> here saying if they have credible fear they should be let in. >> the group that organize this migrant caravan was originally 1500. they wanted to overwhelm our border officials. by their sheer volume. the numbers dissipated because president trump in the mexican government cooperated and started repatriating many of them back. now the remaining number of people don't meet the criteria of entering the country whether they have of user not they should not be allowed in. >> is anybody advocating those that don't meet the criteria should be met in. >> of course. there's very few conditions in which people should enter.
10:16 am
>> so your issue is the people that don't meet the credible fear criteria should not be let in. what happens when they show up today or tomorrow? >> it depends if they come in as a family are alone in their country fortune. is it mexico or other parts. >> as things stand right now to have an issue with how things will go tomorrow? >> my issues with this group that came in and tried to coerce officials. now they're trying to receive legal advice. >> it was interesting were being told what to say and what not to say. >> that's the problem. you're being coached to lie to border officials. rather from their home country they could go to u.s. embassy a petition for asylum. >> leland: reasonable people can agree that if your fear being
10:17 am
kidnapped by a gang and your kids are being beaten by gangs that going to the u.s. embassy in applying and spending another nine months and how you can make the argument that anyone would try to flee to the border. >> the bigger question is why is anger being directed toward the u.s. government. i think anger on what's happening right now. why are we just not opening our arms and letting people here. let's redirect the anger toward their own country and government for allowing drug cartels in the violence. that's what we should be asking. >> leland: there's a lot of questions about if the u.s. is doing enough to help these countries. i appreciate your insight. more tomorrow as it happens.

they can to stop the advancement because they hate him. this is what we've seen where we've had the senator and the allies attempt to stop the president's nominee. i feel the senator hurt himself as we see these continue to come out throughout the administration you have americans across the country who wonder when their elected officials speak are they telling the truth? the president one by more than 20 points. they had the third highest per capita population of veterans. i think you did that because this will hurt him. >> i think you don't know john tester very well. she's voted to confirm all 12 of his nominees to the veterans department.

10:47 am
>> if that particular allegation is false, then yes. >> to put about town and whether he'll apologize? >> doubtful. he's following the talking points of the dnc. this is what they been doing. resist the president at every move. it's why social conservatives respect the president so much and what he's trying to accomplish. he's willing to stick to his guns. he nominated an honorable man in the dnc resorts to character assassination. were talking about the senator from montana on the saturday afternoon. >> had donald trump nominated qualified person. >> i think when anyone can agree sad is if indeed someone whose
