tv   Shepard Smith Reporting  FOX News  May 14, 2018 12:00pm-1:00pm PDT

12:00 pm
>> shepard: it's 3:00 on the east coast, noon on the west coast. 10:00 p.m. in the gaza strips. dozens of protesters have been killed in the bloodiest day in many years, this comes on the same day that washington opens the embassy in jerusalem. >> what a glorious day. remember this moment. >> the palestinians disagree. president trump looking to protect some jobs in china. he's blasting chinese trade practices. so why is he protecting chinese jobs again? why is he making this move now? plus, betting on the big game. did you hear this? the supreme court with a huge ruling today that changes the
12:01 pm
law of the land. so states say you can bet on sports there? well, you can. let's get to it. >> and first from the fox news deck this monday afternoon, deadly riots on the gaza border. the united states officially opens its embassy in jerusalem. president trump's controversial decision to move the embassy and recognize jerusalem as the capitol of israel breaking from decades of american foreign policy. >> president trump announced to the world that the united states would finally recognize the truth. that jerusalem is the capitol of israel. while presidents before him have backed down from their pledge to move the american embassy once in office, this president delivered. because when president trump makes a promise, he keeps it. >> of course, the area is long under dispute. the palestinians say jerusalem
12:02 pm
should be their capitol. previous presidents have kept the embassy in tel aviv in an attempt to stay neutral. defense officials tell fox news the pentagon is beefing up security at embassies in the middle east. officials in the gaza say that israeli soldiers killed more than 50 people and injured more than 1,000 others today alone. that would make this the deadliest day there since the fighting in 2014. the israeli military accusing protesters of throwing fire bombs and other explosive devices and accuses hamas of using the demonstrations to cover to launch attacks. the timing is symbolic. 70 years ago, israel became a state. palestinians call it catastrophe
12:03 pm
in arabic. the war that followed drove thousands of arab refugees out of israel. "the new york times" reports that most of the staff will stay in tel aviv for the time being and the american ambassador will split his time between the two locations. benjamin hall in jerusalem. first, the chief white house correspondent, john roberts. john, big picture. >> the big picture, it's symbolic more than anything. you mentioned a second ago, ambassador david friedman and a core group of staff will be occupying the annex building at the u.s. consulate in israel. it's been renamed though u.s. embassy. the main embassy will still be in tel aviv for some time. it will likely be years until a new building is built. the united states recognized jerusalem as the capitol of israel and gave ambassador david
12:04 pm
friedman a piece of turf there in jerusalem where he can do the business of the united states in israel. the president obviously very happy about this move tweeting out this morning, big day for israel. congratulations. he's had criticism heaped on him for doing this. many people saying it's an obstacle to peace. the president said this has always been held back. the reason why it never moved, the palestinians wanted it part of a final status negotiation. the president said i'm going to take that off the table. for context, this is the result of an act of congress in 1995 that jerusalem embassy act which passed in the senate, 93-5 and 374-37 in the house. i mean, even the senate minority leader was praising the president for making this prove. saying in a long overdo move, we moved our embassy to jerusalem. i sponsored legislation to do this two decades ago and i
12:05 pm
applaud president trump for doing it. clearly in the middle east, this has been a matter of contention. it's interesting to note that america's allies haven't said anything about it. of course, we saw the violence on the border. that was the subject that came up in the briefing today. i put a question to raj shah about it. listen here. >> same time there was the celebratory air in jerusalem as the u.s. was moving its embassy in the south of israel along the border with gaza, there was a lot of violence that resulted in more than 41 people losing their lives. >> we're aware of the continued reports of violence. these deaths rest squarely with hamas. hamas is provoking this response. as the secretary of state said, israel has a right to defend itself. >> and raj shah was asked the question many times and he says it's hamas' responsibility here.
12:06 pm
interesting to point out, in a statement the foreign minister of france urged israel to show restraint and any response would need to be proportionate. shep? >> shepard: john, more than 35,000 palestinians were protesting at the border as israel opened the embassy in jerusalem. hamas leader warned protesters that if they broke through the border today, there would be trouble. so far the israeli military reports that they have not broken through that border. israeli army jets dropped pamphlets warning the protesters that they would be risking their lives if they tried to cross the border. health officials say more than 50 palestinians have died. three of those kids were trying to plant bombs near the border fence. we cannot confirm. benjamin hall has more in jerusalem. benjamin? >> hi, shep. we just came back from the
12:07 pm
border what we saw today are scenes of chaos. if i can paint the scene for you. we were there about a kilometer away from the border. you can see the thick black smoke which the palestinians light tires to mask themselves from the snipers. then we can see this massing towards the border. chaotic scene there's and tear gas being dropped from above. we would hear long extended bursts of gun fire. after that, you would have reports of the death toll mounting. 2,300 wounded at least and that makes it the deadliest day since the war there in 2014. the reason they were so forceful, they said there were a number of coordinated attempts on the part of the palestinians to breach the fence coming into israel. if that happened, it's a five-minute run to certain villages and they cannot let that happen.
12:08 pm
that's a policy of theirs. they said we frankly had to do it to protect our own people. you know, what was fascinating, they said if there was any escalation, they would strike back at hamas. that's what we saw. they hit hamas camps. there was a real sense of the idea that they wouldn't let it happen but they were also surprised by the scale of it. we look forward to tomorrow to see if this escalates or calms down. >> shepard: i was going to ask you next, what we've been led to expect. >> shep, tomorrow is supposed to be the big day. you said earlier, tomorrow is the day that the palestinians mourned the creation of israel. and that was to be the big day. today we saw 30,000 palestinians come to the fence. we expect it to continue. the reason the palestinians are so angry at this, they see america's move by recognizing
12:09 pm
jerusalem as the capitol as an end to the u.s. being a peace negotiator. so without them, they say what do we do? an incredible deadly day today on the border. we wait for tomorrow. huge significant week in general with the iran deal being pulled out, the israeli strikes in syria. so put together, you get a feeling that this is a turbulent time in this region, shep. >> shepard: benjamin hall live in jerusalem. thank you. one of the men that gave a prayer before the ceremony in jerusalem today says he believes all jews are going to hell. robert jeffress is the first baptist church in dallas. his beliefs are well-documented. among those arailing to include him as governor is mitt romney. he tweeted robert jefress said you can't be saved by being a jew and mormonism is part of
12:10 pm
hell. he said a religious budget that shouldn't be given the opening prayer in jerusalem. and mitt romney says to reporters today the fact that i along with millions of evangelical christians around the world espouse that belief is no longer newsworthy. and jefress said mormonism has never been part of christianity. islam is a false religion and if you follow the tenants of it, you will end up in hell when you die. he's accused gays of being engaged in the most unclean acts you can imagine and said the supreme court decision on marriage of quality is the greatest most historic landmark blunder ever in the court's history. reporters at the white house briefing today asked why he was
12:11 pm
chosen to bless this event. the spokesman said the pastor has a longstanding relationship with people on both sides of the aisle on capitol hill and his remarks are one with which the president does not degree. richard jefress is a fox news contributor. president trump says he's committed to finding lasting peace in the middle east. we'll look at how today's embassy opening could affect that goal. our next guest said the united states just made a big concession to israel. what is the united states getting in return? we'll have that answer when we return. my day starts well before i'm even in the kitchen. i need my blood sugar to stay in control. so i asked about tresiba®. ♪ tresiba® ready ♪ tresiba® is a once-daily, long-acting insulin that lasts even longer than 24 hours. i need to shave my a1c. ♪ tresiba® ready ♪ tresiba® works like my body's insulin. releases slow and steady. providing powerful a1c reduction. my week? hectic. my weekends? my time. ♪ tresiba® ready ♪

12:13 pm
12:14 pm
>> shepard: continuing coverage on fox's top story. deadly protests in gaza as president trump following through on his campaign promise to move the u.s. embassy to jerusalem. let's go to john alterman from a bipartisan research organization. he served at the state department under president george w. bush as a member of the policy planning staff. good to see you. thank you. >> good to be back. thank you, shep. >> shepard: your thoughts on today's development. >> you know, i guess the biggest question is what is the trump administration really trying to do? a big political gift for prime minister for netanyahu. >> shepard: which it is. >> sets back the administration's plan to engage on peace making. europeans have become more alienated. you can argue it doesn't matter, maybe it does. i'm not sure where this fits into a broader scheme of things
12:15 pm
except to say this is a very unconventional administration. >> shepard: historically this has been seen as the kind of thing you do in exchange for something else. is that right? >> i think that's right. this is probably the biggest prize, the one where people could slice and dice it any number of ways. you want it to be a closer, not your opening bid. if it's your opening bid, it ends up not being very valuable unless you really change the environment. everything i've seen in the last several months suggests it hasn't changed the environment. you have a tremendous break down in politics. it doesn't seem to have galvanized a movement to change things. it seems to have given the prime minister a boost and frankly given president trump a little bit of a political boost in the united states. >> shepard: by way of example,
12:16 pm
600,000 or so israelis now live in settlements in the occupied territories in palestinian lands. this is the kind of thing that if for instance the it's rasrae abandon the settlements, this was like the kind of thing you'd give in return, right? >> everybody believes there will be land swaps. some will leave the west bank when you get to a deal. seems almost inconceivable that we go to hear from getting a deal without real change in the situation on the ground, which unfortunately may be some sort of violence perpetrated one way or the other. i'm not sure how we get there from here because of a sense that the united states has given up the idea of being between the parties and instead has adopted
12:17 pm
a theory that the problem that israel is too weak and be sieged and the palestinians are too strong. most people say that's not the conditions on the ground at all. >> shepard: i wish we had more time, john. breaking news has gotten in the way. breaking news on two fronts. first, the former senate democratic leader harry reid is recovering after doctors removed a tumor from his pancreas. that's according to his family. harry reid's doctors caught the problem early during a routine screening. let's go to mike emanuel for more. what has happened thus far? >> a source that i have spoken with and those close to senator harry reid say he's doing well. recovering from surgery after a procedure at the johns hopkins cancer center in baltimore, maryland. a world renown facility. they believe they caught the tumor early on through routine screening. we understand that senator reid is resting with family at this
12:18 pm
hour and some of his colleagues like chuck schumer that replaced reid are sending their prayers and well-wishes to him. senator reid retired from the united states senate after 30 years here on capitol hill. the last 12 year ago as the senate democratic leader. left congress january 2017 and still active. his doctors are saying the prognosis is good. that he will have deal therapy as part of his treatment and hope to have a good prognosis. when you hear a tumor related to the pancreas, there's concern from people on both sides of the aisle. those that knew and served with harry reid. >> shepard: great concern now. other breaking news. fox news has confirmed that the first lady, melania trump, has had a treatment for a kidney condition, surgery. a spokesman said it went fine and the first lady is doing well. let's get to john roberts on the north lawn.
12:19 pm
a first lady a surgery. what do we know? >> it's a minimally invasive surgery. it's done through a catheter. what she had is an ebolization surgery. they snake a wire through your artery and take it through the kidney and completely block off blood flow to one part of the kidney. i'm told by the white house this is a benign condition. the ebolization procedures are done if you have a cancerous tumor or a benign tumor. this being a benign condition according to stephanie grisham, the first lady's spokesperson. that would put it in the category of an noncancerous tumor. so she's at walter reed in bethesda.
12:20 pm
we're told she will remain there the rest of a week. after you have a procedure like this, you want to remain still to make sure everything sets in the way doctors want it to. minimally invasive surgery, what is called an ebolization procedure to block off blood flow. she came through with flying colors but resting at walter reed the rest of the week. >> shepard: all this brand new to us, john. why walter reed? who was with her during these? what other details you might have, if any? >> we don't know who was with her. why walter reed? the president and the first lady, the second lady of the united states, the vice president, everybody here at the white house who is on staff gets treatment at walter reed. this being part of the federal government and so many military aspects of this involved. walter reed is the place you go. we know that back in january the president went to walter reed for his medical that we heard so
12:21 pm
much about from dr. ronny jackson and the story after that. we don't believe the president went up there because we didn't have any presidential movement this morning. this just breaking, shep. we'll get you more information. >> shepard: it's my understanding that the president remained at the white house. the first lady there. you said she could be there as long as a week. that's standard, right? >> for this type of procedure. ebolization therapy is for a uterine fibroid. they thread a catheter up and block off flow to an artery creating a fibroid to grow in a woman's uterus. you have to remain still. it can cause pain. you don't want to dislodge the blockage. you want to remain fairly still, quiet a number of days to make sure everything sets in. you can talk with the medical a-team more. i'm not a doctor, shep. i play one on tv. >> shepard: the bottom line on
12:22 pm
this is, from reading this stuff, the first lady is absolutely fine, correct? >> she is. the problem is if you have a benign tumor growing in your kidney, at some point it will cause problems. you can go into kidney failure if it were to burst through blood vessels. you want to get ahead of this and shrink down whatever condition she has in her kidney. the most likely candidate is this myeypoma. you want to shrink it down. >> shepard: thanks, john. the headline is, a statement from the communications director about first lady melania trump, this is just coming in, this morning the first lady, melania trump underwent and ebolization procedure to treat a benign kidney condition. mrs. trump is at walter reed national military medical center
12:23 pm
and will likely remain there the duration of the week. the first lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere. that's the official statement from the first lady's office. dr. seagle is on the line with us, a member of the fox news medical a team. dr. seagle, this was kept under wraps, privacy as is somewhat standard. i'm sure this is a matter that a lot of people will be googling. a good moment for us to learn more about it. what can you tell us, dr. seagle? >> shep, listen, the first thing is that this type of a thing -- i don't have the inside medical information. commonly it's something called a fatty tumor, which is benign. there's two ways you can remove it. one is to remove it surgically. the other is to blood off the blood supply. it's a good time to understand that we have advanced with modern surgical techniques where we can isolate and cut off the
12:24 pm
blood supply to something that is benign and shrink it so you don't have to remove it surgically. >> shepard: what is she undergoing right now? >> a little pain in the area, some discovered. a lot less if you removed it surgically. that's the good news. you go in through an artery and a small incision. catheter, artery. not a lot of pain. rapid recovery. >> shepard: the next few days, will the pain diminish? are there things a doctor would tell her to do or not do? >> they'll of course be watching her urine. they'll watch the area where the catheter went in. they'll tell her not to do a lot hoff extensive activity. take it easy. she probably want have more than a day or so of bed rest. probably will see her back on
12:25 pm
her feet in the next day or two. a modern miracle of a nonsurgical approach. >> shepard: dr. seagle -- please finish. >> shep, we call it minimally innovative now. again, you use the opportunity to shrink the blood supply to something that is benign. you wouldn't use this technique if you thought there was a chance it was malignant. something like a fatty tumor, you can do this. it requires a lot of blood. you cut off the blood and it shrinks. >> shepard: the first lady looks forward to a full recovery. all the best to the first lady today. president trump is promising to save jobs at a major company. not in america, but in china. and this particular company is one that u.s. officials have called a threat to national security. last month the commerce department blocked the chinese telecom firm called zte from
12:26 pm
importing american parts for its products. u.s. officials say the company violated a settlement deal after getting around u.s. penalties on iran and north korea. they were trading with north korea when the sanctions said you didn't do that. in addition, cyber security officials warn the company's technology could be a major security threat. just two weeks ago, the pentagon banned zte phones from all stores on all u.s. military bases everywhere in the world. warning that china could use those phones to spy on american service members. but then yesterday seemingly out of nowhere, the president tweeted president xi of china and i are working to give zte a way to get back in business fast. too many jobs in china lost. commerce department has been instructed to get it done. let's go back to john roberts who is live at the white house. this one caught everybody off
12:27 pm
guard, john. >> it did. this is my little portable my-fi pocket. it's made by zte. i've done a lot of business on this. zte, which is a telecommunications company was accused by the commerce department of violating sanctions that were in place against north korea and iran by selling them equipment. the commerce department levied a penalty of $1.2 billion, which looked like it was going to have a real financial impact on the company such that the company might not be able to survive. suddenly the president tweets out over the weekend that he wants to try to work with president xi to make sure that zte can stay in business. what is most likely at the bottom line of this is a couple of things, shep. there's trade talks going on between the united states and china, the united states is looking for big concessions, $200 billion over two years from china and the chinese are coming
12:28 pm
back later on this week to continue those talks. and then there's north korea. don't forget, president trump really leaned on president xi to help on north korea. if suddenly the united states is enacting penalties against a chinese owned business, big telecom company that will torpedo it, president xi won't be likely to continue to be so cooperative on north korea. i had a chance to put the question to what was behind the president's thinking to raj shah. let's listen here. >> so what is the president's thinking with that tweet? >> obviously this is part of a very complex relationship and china that involves national security issues. it's an issue of high concern for china that has been raised with the u.s. government and with our administration at various levels. so the president has asked secretary ross to look into it, consistent with applicable laws and regulations. >> if you regular back to three
12:29 pm
topics ago, about a half an hour ago, we said that the minority leader in the senate, chuck schumer praised president trump for making the embassy move. he's not of the same mind when it comes to zte. one of the few areas that i agreed with the president is his approach to china. now he's backing off and his design is to make china great again. ouch! you mentioned, shep, that zte products can't be sold over military bases or overseas anymore. back february 13, senator tom cotton said if they would recommend using zte products with their agencies or anybody here in america using them. not a person raised their hand and said it would be a good idea. so i don't know what i'm going to do with this, shep. i have to talk to somebody.
12:30 pm
>> shepard: probably too late. john roberts, thank you. let's turn to a.b. stoddard. i have other questions. this thing -- this is a president that during the campaign season railed on china in every way possible who has since said we're going to do tariffs and now all of a sudden we need to save chinese jobs after they broke the north korea -- i don't get it. >> well, he is in this back and forth on trade trying to mitigate the effects of retallatory. tariffs from the chinese that are affecting soy beans -- >> shepard: he's the one that did that. put the sanctions -- >> as john mentioned, he's negotiating with north korea. the thing about trump that he talks about openly is that he is -- everything is negotiable. he's flexible and unpredictable. the trans pacific partnership was a rave of our country and
12:31 pm
maybe he considered getting back into it. nothing will surprise anyone at this point. it looks from the statements, shep, about applicable laws. the commerce department re-visiting this as a walk back and gave in too soon to a tweet to re-assuring the chinese about zte. looks like they had to do some scrambling. but we can't predict that president trump won't offer it up again as a give and take in this ongoing negotiation on two fronts. >> shepard: you can argue a bigger deal. the palestinians say the united states cannot be an arbiter of any kinds of middle east peace discussions, not like anything like that is going on right now. how do you see this in the main and where you see it in the future based on our knowledge of
12:32 pm
history? >> well, everyone knew when the trump administration began, the president talked himself about how it would be -- such a problem, the hardest deal of all deals to bring peace to the middle east between the israelis and palestinians. they seemed to be deep at work on this for mo months. it's the way they decided this embassy decision, spoke about it, the rhetoric and the celebration today doesn't seem to indicate they're doing to try to go back to the drawing board and the negotiating table. it seems to be a decision that very much benefits the israelis and no, they're not going to be opening another embassy for the palestinians in another half of jerusalem in the years to come, even though some people are trying to say that that is still possible. makes things difficult. you heard the official line. this is the violence perpetrated by hamas and has to be accepted
12:33 pm
as that and that is not a consequence of decisions made about the embassy. you know, this combined with israeli and iranian confrontation in syria, which results from the withdrawal from the iran deal will complicate things going forward. if the administration wants to get back to the peace deal, i think we'll hear about it soon. doesn't sound like it's today. >> shepard: sounds like a march in the other direction. a.b., thanks. >> thanks, shep. >> shepard: good news if you're feeling lucky. sports gambling no longer banned across the united states thanks to a recent supreme court decision. if a state says yeah, we'll set up sports gambling here like new jersey, you can have it. not just out in vegas, baby. but everywhere. unless congress acts. sports betting! that's coming up. dear great-great-grandfather, you turned a family recipe into a brewing empire

12:35 pm
12:36 pm
>> shepard: breaking news. first lady melania trump underwent and ebbolism treatment. doctors at walter reed medical center treated her and will -- she will likely be in the hospital the rest of the week. that's according to the first lady's communications director at the white house. the communications director sent out the following notice. this morning, first lady underwent a procedure with no complications. she looks forward to a full recovery to continue her work on behalf of children everywhere. the president remained at the white house. we expect further news this afternoon. the news continues after this.

>> shepard: repeating the breaking news from this hour. the first lady, melania trump, underwent an emboliization procedure. she's recovering at walter reed
12:46 pm
medical center. we just received word from her personal spokesperson that she's doing very well. no word when the president may have visited or the rest of the family or any details. we're expecting them later this afternoon. the united states will have to give security assurances to north korea to make a nuclear deal with that country. security assurances. that's what mike pompeo told chris wallace on "fox news sunday." he did not say whether those assurances would include a promise to keep the dictator kim jong-un in control of the country. >> are we in effect saying to kim, if you give us what we want, you can stay on in power? >> we will have to provide security assurances to be sure. this has been the trade-off that has been pending for 25 years. >> shepard: what kind of security assurances? remember, this is a man that murdered his own brother, that keeps people in prison for multiple generations like when your grandfather does something,
12:47 pm
you're in jail. but pompeo wouldn't elaborate. he said any talks about regime change would depend on how negotiations go. secretary of state met with kim jong-un last week in north korea we're told. the president is set to meet with the north korean dictator about a month from now in singapore. that's the schedule. rich edson has more. >> there's a great deal of detail to work out on this. last week on his travelling to north korea, the u.s. said they wouldn't do this in small increments. the u.s. is stressing that they want a comprehensive agreement. >> we've don trade for trade, moment for moment, you give me x and i've give you y and it's failed. claim kim understands that. he appreciates the fact that this will have to be different, big and special. something that has never been undertaken before. >> north korea is saying later this month they're going to
12:48 pm
