2:00 am
pants. [laughter] >> i will not. greg: doctor, thank you terry, kat julie banderas is up next with the fox report. blake: have a good night. julie: president trump touting the republican tax bill in ohio as the g.o.p. looks to seize momentum heading into the state's critical primaries. i'm julie banderas, you are watching the fox report. president trump is back at the white house tonight after a quick trip to cleveland. the president meeting with donors there before hosting a roundtable with small business owners. the conversation heavily focusing on the economy. >> our country is doing great. it's i think maybe doing as good or better than it's ever done before, and it is only going to get better. we have tremendous things planned. i'm very honored to have been able to do the tax cut, tax cut plan because it has led to a lot of jobs.
2:01 am
it has let to better jobs. -- it has led to better jobs. it has led to increased salary. julie: ellison barber has the latest. >> the president is trying to emphasize tax cuts and the economy as we head into this election season. many republicans are doing that as well. the president sat next to republican senate candidate congressman, who is hoping to win the ohio republican nomination and beat democratic senator brown in november. tuesday is primary election day in ohio. the president endorsed the congressman last week and stumped for him today. >> jim's really doing great. he's really got a big shot at doing it. he's been a fantastic congressman. and i really suspect you're going to be an even more fantastic senator. we need your vote. we feed your help. -- we need your help. go out and help jim. >> the president hinted at
2:02 am
potential future actions in regards to immigration and healthcare. >> we're going to get the wall, even if we have to think about closing up the country for a while. over the next few weeks, we will have a very big announcement on healthcare. >> this week the president has had difficulty keeping the discussion on policy. a lot of that is because of his newest lawyer rudy giuliani. he threw a wrench in the media cycle this week when he told fox news's sean hannity that president trump repaid attorney michael cohen the $130,000 he gave to adult film star stormy daniels in order to get her to sign a nondisclosure agreement. giuliani released a statement, quote, clarifying some of his remarks. he said the repayment is not a campaign violation, and quote, my references to timing were not describing my understanding of the president's knowledge, but instead my understanding of these matters. giuliani's remarks seem to contradict previous statements made by cohen and the president. the president disagreed with that assessment. >> rudy made the statement.
2:03 am
rudy's great. but rudy had just started, and he wasn't totally familiar with every -- you know, with everything. >> mr. president -- >> we're not changing any story. >> here's what president trump said on air force one in april. >> do you know about the $130,000 payment to stormy daniels? >> president trump said that he paid cohen a retainer fee in the reimbursement came from that. julie? julie: ellison barber, thank you very much. investigators on special counsel robert mueller's team reportedly questioning this man on your screen, california real estate investor in their russian meddling probe. he is a close friend of president trump who played an integral role in the 2016 campaign. garrett tenney is in washington. garrett, what do we know about the interview? >> well, julie, to understand why this interview is significant, you have to know about the relationship with the
2:04 am
president. they have known each other for more than 30 years. have done business deals and or close friends and confidant. he played a crucial role in materially days of donald trump's campaign -- in the early days of donald trump's campaign as a top fund-raiser during a time when most republicans didn't take the candidacy seriously. following the election, he tapped him to lead his inauguration committee. he has first-hand knowledge of the president as a person, as a businessman and as the candidate which is why investigators had a broad range of questions for him. one individual familiar with the interview told the associated press that the questions included financial matters about the trump campaign, the transition, and the inauguration. another individual told the ap investigators focused almost exclusively on two trump campaign officials who have already been indicted by mueller, paul manafort and rick gates. julie? julie: and special counsel mueller's team is apparently now facing some pretty tense blowback in its case against paul manafort. it is coming from a federal
2:05 am
judge. what is that judge saying? >> well, the district judge had some harsh words for mueller's team yesterday not only questioning their motives behind the case but also going so far as to suggest that investigators are on a mission to take down the president. he told them, quote, you don't really care about mr. manafort's bank fraud. you really care about what information mr. manafort can give you to lead you to mr. trump and an impeachment or prosecution. manafort is facing an 18 count indictment on tax and bank fraud charges for crimes going back as far as 2005. yesterday it was revealed that some of the information investigators used to bring those charges came from a previous doj investigation. that is what led judge ellis to question the authority and motivation of mueller's team to prosecute manafort's alleged crimes given that the information came up outside of the special counsel's work. judge ellis gave prosecutors two weeks to provide evidence or an explanation as to how this case falls under their purview.
2:06 am
julie? julie: thank you very much. for more on robert mueller's russia probe, let's bring in steven nelson, a white house reporter for the washington examiner. thank you very much for talking to us. so pretty powerful words coming from a federal judge. i mean, does mueller have unfettered power the way that judge ellis describes it? >> well, it would appear to an outsider, yes, but this judge is a bit of a character. i've been in his courtroom before. and what he says isn't always -- when he uses exciting words to describe a case, it doesn't always result in an exciting ruling. i was in his courtroom for a hearing about the nsa over internet surveillance, he lectured the attorneys on both sides, he questioned the seriousness of the secret foreign intelligence surveillance court saying there was no one arguing the counterpoint but then his ultimate ruling was less
2:07 am
excited. we don't know yet how this will factor in how he decides various things in the case. julie: sounds like he should have a tv show. judge ellis goes as far as accusing mueller of using criminal cases to pressure trump's allies to turn against him. that sounds like entrapment i mean if you were to actually define what he's saying there. >> it certainly sounds critical of what's going on. but then again, we don't know -- we don't know how he's going to rule really. and he wants to see the source memo that outlines what mueller's team can do. we really have to see where it goes from here. julie: there's this hearing in a federal court in virginia on friday. u.s. district judge ellis sharply questions whether mueller exceeded his authority in filing tax and bank fraud charges against trump's former campaign manager paul manafort. he says the indictment appeared to be a way for mueller to leverage manafort into providing information about trump.
2:08 am
as you know, there has been talk of the president firing mueller. would it seem to you that this judge could potentially be in the president's ear because as we know, the president very much respects this judge. >> you know, i think that trump knows the political storm that would be created by firing mueller. perhaps the judge could lay down a case for doing so, but it seems that president trump for now is disinclined to do that. he realizes that could cause him more trouble than could prevent. julie: about getting rid of rosenstein. there's been a lot of people out there that believe rod rosenstein should go. if not get rid of mueller, would rosenstein be something that the president perhaps would still consider, or is that off the table as well? >> you know, it's a hot source of speculation, but trump, you know, has himself said people have been talking about this for a long time and these people are still around. so i think as of now, it doesn't seem likely that he would fire
2:09 am
him either, but, you know, president trump surprises us. julie: all right. steven nelson, thank you very much. of course you're going to come back to us because we will be talking to you later about north korea, south korea, a lot going on there. so stand by and we will back to you at the bottom of the hour. president trump facing a rapidly approaching may 12th deadline. that is one week from today, folks, may 12th to decide whether to stay in the iran nuclear deal, and now former secretary of state john kerry, he's coming under fire over reports he's been secretly meeting with world leaders in a bid to save the deal? harvard law professor emeritus weighing in. >> -- if it were in existence, my friend john kerry would be violating the logan act. he is negotiating, though he is not in the administration. and there are real problems with doing that. we can do much better than we do now, and if john can accomplish that, all power to him, but if what he's doing is just trying
2:10 am
to preserve a bad deal, he shouldn't be doing it. julie: david lee miller has more from jerusalem. >> if the u.s. does decide to pull out of the iran deal, experts say it will be difficult to predict what happens next because the u.s. is only one country that signed on to the agreement. france, russia, china, germany, the u.k., and iran could all still decide to remain in the agreement. but there will be global implications if the u.s. does decide to walk away. on may 12th the president will have to decide to renew waivers for sanctions that target iran's central bank and oil exports. if that happens, countries buying oil would have to reduce purchases or face penalties imposed by the u.s. some experts say iran's oil exports could be reduced to up to a million barrels a day. that could result in a spike in the cost of gasoline in the u.s. there's also another date to keep in mind. by july 11th, president trump will have to decide about other
2:11 am
sanctions, that target iranian companies and individuals. the president can decide to reimpose all sanctions at once or do it piecemeal. the gradual approach could provide the leverage and time to come up with a new or amended agreement. if iran considers the agreement dead, it might act unconstrained in the region, targeting israel and increasing its influence and presence in syria and lebanon. some analysts warn iran could abandon restrictions on its nuclear program that were previously agreed to and increase uranium enrichment. the head of iran's atomic energy organization says the country has the capability to enrich uranium to a higher level than before the deal was signed. in jerusalem, david lee miller, fox news. julie: david lee miller, thank you very much. right now president trump says plans for his historic meeting with north korean dictator kim jong-un are coming together as we learn south korea's president will soon visit the white house. we will have details straight ahead. plus, we are live on the
2:12 am
ground from the big island of hawaii where volcanic eruptions and earthquakes have forced hundreds of people to evacuate. >> activity continues. doesn't look like it is slowing down. everything is still escalated. so the county and the government just continues to respond and try to be aware. >> tech: don't wait for a chip like this to crack your whole windshield. with safelite's exclusive resin, you get a strong repair that you can trust. plus, with most insurance a safelite repair is no cost to you. >> customer: really?! >> singers: safelite repair, safelite replace. i had a very minor fender bender tonight! in an unreasonably narrow fast food drive thru lane.
2:13 am
but what a powerful life lesson. and don't worry i have everything handled. i already spoke to our allstate agent, and i know that we have accident forgiveness. which is so smart on your guy's part. like fact that they'll just... forgive you... four weeks without the car. okay, yup. good night. with accident forgiveness your rates won't go up just because of an accident. switching to allstate is worth it.

2:16 am
house is safe. >> if this opens up, i will leave, but other than that, unless they force me to leave, yeah, i ain't planning to leave. whatever happens happens, that's it. deal with it as it comes. julie: william la jeunesse is live on the big island. still aftershocks, wow. >> yeah, you know, the experts at the volcano center here in hawaii are predicting things to get worse before they get better. more eruptions and more earthquakes. now, i want to show you something real quickly. you know, most people think that a volcano only erupts through the crater or through the cone, well the cone of mount kilauea is about 24 miles in that direction. this particular eruption, if you will, is coming through vents, considerably down slope from the cone of mount kilauea. there are actually eight of them, and they are clustered near one community. and indeed, that is the area where they have basically evacuated 1400 individuals, 700
2:17 am

2:18 am
tourists you can still come to hawaii you are not going to get ash and debris and have your life threatened, if you will. it is still a hot spot but as of this point in time, the effects of this particular event is pretty loek localized. -- localized. even though it was a 6.9 earthquake, the effect was pretty localized to this island and virtually no tsunami to speak of. julie: that is a blessing in disguise. thank you very much. for more than a thousand people arrested for demonstrating in cities across russia, what they were protesting that caused this extreme police response. plus two law enforcement officers mowed down and killed on a highway last year. and today police finally have their suspect. what we are learning tonight about the man behind the wheel.

2:31 am
sources say they want the two leaders to focus on the nuclear issue during their face to face meeting. in a gesture of goodwill, the north moved its clocks ford 30 minute. a small step in the right direction. julie: for more on this let's bring back tim nelson. this is so fascinating. no president has ever done this. for those critics who believe the president is not making right decisions. he's done something very right in order for kim jong-un to be willing to sit down with the u.s. president. >> it's amazing we are weeks away from major diplomatic events in history. we of course still know very few details about when this will be or where it will happen. this announcement that trump is
2:32 am
meeting with the south korean leader later at the white house is the best clue we have so far that this meeting will be happening after may 2. we don't know when or where. and we don't know what security protocols will be in place. july * how critical about south korean president moon jae-in's visit be? >> we would imagine that they are going to be discussing the agenda for the meeting. what priority president trump will be pursuing when he sit down with kim, it is important of course that they are on the same page, and the south koreans played an important role in facilitating this meeting. they announced it to the press there would be this meeting to begin with. so they are playing a key role

here. >> you get a lot of hints coming from the white house. they talked about it potentially under rex tillerson. mike pompeo comes in and, boy, it happened. this third summit between the two leaders affirms the enduring strength of the united states and south korea. tape says the two leaders will discuss the upcoming meeting with the president's meeting with kim jong-un. they now have a date, they have a location they will-be announcing soon. they love to tease us. but what is the game plan when this meeting happens. >> president trump need to come away with some sort of deal or take steps towards starving --
2:34 am
it's something he'll be looking for when he sits down. it will be something he has to take away. he has been theatrical in teasing the summit. maybe it would be singapore or the dmz. they could have a celebration afterward. it will be quite the show when it actually happens. julie: they have to talk about their allies and other countries. they need china, japan and south korea are not object the same page. how will trade tariffs also play into the fold when these two meet. >> it's a complicated series of issues. president trump has stated that he'll be doing this meeting. japan of course was apparently blindsided. but the japanese prime minister
2:35 am
came over here and said he approved of what trump was doing. trump bashed china on tariffs. and they apparently played a role in forcing north korea to the table. but the * has been able to see to it that it's going to happen and he'll bring everyone along with him seeing this happen. julie: one of the things the president is good at is turning frenemies into friend. he called this guy rocket man. now they are sitting down and talking. the the same thing with china. and he has a great relationship with xi jinping and the same with japan. how does he use that? i suppose his business background in building up this expectation and commanding their respect. if they didn't respect him, they would be meeting with him. >> president trump has been
2:36 am
referring to cub * using -- julie: their name calling back and forth is hilarious but it worked. >> now he's using word like respected to describe kim jong-un. president trump can talk about relationships with a lot of world leaders. but kim jong-un is at a different level of notoriety. so president trump has to be careful how he terms the relationship going forward. he can't say this is a close friend of mine like he does with china's leader. president trump is good at making frenemies out of world leaders out of historic u.s. adversaries. julie: i don't think he'll be calling cub * his bff. thank you very much. great to see you. it's been three years since kim
