>> laura: that's all the time we have tonight. follow me on twitter. shannon bream takes things from here with a great show. >> shannon: great to see her tonight. thank you so much. we began with a fox news alert. the president focusing on north korea and his barn burner national campaign rally. his top diplomat is getting ready to take on kim jong un's right-hand man in new york. infamous in north korea is the ex-spy chief who has had a bloodied hand and some of the rogue nation's most notorious attacks on south korea. in the president, the reason he was there in nashville, tennessee, tonight, supporting congressman marsha blackburn senate run. she will join us live. plus it was missing from the records and presidents rally. trace is tracking the latest of follow-up for us today.
8:01 pm
hello and welcome to "fox news @ night." i'm shannon bream in washington. kim jong un's right-hand man is on a rare diplomatic mission to new york right now. he will meet with secretary of state mike pompeo. it appears june 12th is back on track. we've got team coverage for your tonight. chief national correspondent ed henry on the president's latest immigration comments. by the way, the rapid fire reply from mexico, he's got that breaking news. we begin with kristin fisher. the longtime spy chief from north korea heading to meet with secretary pompeo. >> president trump spoke for about an hour tonight. he never really addressed the negotiations taking place all over the world to make this summit in singapore happened but he did say something about his national security advisor john bolton with the white house that has been speaking with his south korean and japanese counterparts every day and is known for taking a very tough line with the north koreans. >> they think he is so nasty and so tough that i have to hold him
8:02 pm
back. that's pretty great. and he's doing a great job. you better get some rest, because we have some pretty good negotiations coming. >> would first secretary of state mike pompeo was poised to meet with kim jong un's right-hand man in new york city. the 21st met when pompeo was in north korea. now he's on his way to the united states. he has a huge figure in north korea. currently the vice chairman of the north korean worldly ruliny central committee. he was central intelligence steve potomac chief was believed to be behind the 2014 cyber attack on sony and an attack in 2010 that killed 50 south koreans. for that he was sanctioned by the united states. more recently he was among the small group of north korean officials who accompanied kim jong un all four of his summits with foreign leaders in recent months to china and south korea. he also attended the closing ceremony of the winter olympics in south korea where this picture was taken of him. you can see him in the upper
8:03 pm
right-hand corner staring at ivanka trump and the south korean president's wife during the closing ceremony. now he is about to become the highest level north korean official to travel to the united states in 18 years. the last time was in 2000 and that had u.s. officials hoping that it too would lead to a summit between the leaders of north korea and the united states, but in the end nothing ever came of it. the state department is hoping that this time around it will be different. >> i think it's pretty impressive thinking about where we were one year ago. where we were even six months ago for that matter and now we have three simultaneous meetings taking place on this matter to talk about the denuclearization of the korean peninsula. >> apps for when the new york city meeting won't be taking place and who will be there details are still pretty light but secretary pompeo is expected to head up to new york city tomorrow. >> shannon: kristin fisher with the latest on the north koreans, thank you so much. presidents and the republican national committee on the same page with the failure to crack
8:04 pm
down on the violent ms-13 gang. something the president highlighted in his spirit rally tonight. ed henry joins us now. he was fired up. >> he really was. the president in rare form tonight. he was bowing again that he would be building the wall and even joked about how he did not want to cause an international incident but renewed his campaign promise that in the end he will force mexico to pay for the wall and "they are going to enjoy it." rapid response from the mexican president tweeting no, mexico will never pay for a wall. it now, not ever, sincerely, mexico, all of us. unveiled an ad focusing on the threat from ms-13. the president said to make it an issue in the midterms because he plans to hammer the message that they are for open borders. the president marking nancy pelosi for seeming to defend ms-13 when he called their members animals. listen to what he said at the rally. >> the ms-13 lover nancy pelosi.
8:05 pm
she loves ms-13, can you imagin imagine. remember? i said they are animals and she said how dare you say that. how dare you say that. have you seen what they've done? have you seen what they are doing to us? and we are taking them out of our country by the thousands. out, out. >> there is skepticism among some of the presidents base, and coulter has suggested there's been too much talk. if only he faced a midterm election every month, we would have a wall already. trump administration officials also facing attacks from the left. push back on those bogus allegations that you reported on last night about democrats claiming the president's policies had led to over 1400 migrant children getting lost. that's not true. meanwhile kellyanne conway today teeing off on the fact that his cnn reporter retweeted a photo of two latino kids in a cage, tried to claim it was
8:06 pm
president trump's fault when it was in fact a photo of when barack obama was president. >> why did his cnn reporter retweet that falls fake tweet about the migrant children being in cages? excuse me, you your cnn collects retweeted of two migrant children i suppose laying in the case to make the point against the president. it happened under president obama's this week and then deleted the tweet because it didn't fit the narrative. >> the white house has now shut down an obama era loophole that allowed illegal immigrants to claim they are allowed to be illegally if they call to be entrepreneurs. >> shannon: the conversation is far from over. >> a lot happening on immigration. >> shannon: thank you. no direct mention of special counsel robert mueller intimates nashville rally but the president did talk about the alleged fbi informant or spy he says try to work his way inside the president's 2016 campaign.
8:07 pm
>> is there anybody in this big, beautiful arena right now that is infiltrating our campaign? will you please raise your hand? that would take courage. look, you're take a look at what's going on. never in the history of our country has something taken place like took place during this election. >> shannon: let's talk about it with former republican congressman from utah, fox news contributor jason chaffetz. great to see you tonight. >> thanks, shannon. good to be with you. >> shannon: after the president's claims and talk about spygate, the words he's using about somebody infiltrating or trying to get close to the campaign and feed information back to the fbi, politico says there is no evidence. the health has no evidence has emerged to support that assertion. "cbs news" of the president has tried to sow suspicion about the legitimacy of the fbi investigation, no evidence. how do you respond?
8:08 pm
>> the media is changing its story with "the new york times." it helped reveal this. even james clapper is referring to this person as a spy. this happened on more than one instance involving more than one person. it's why you need vigorous oversight. and if the democrats think this is bogus than they should join with the republicans in wanting to get all the documents. what's mystifying about the democrats as republicans keep wanting to open this transparency and be able to see all the documents and if the democrats that don't seem to want to get to the truth. where is their curiosity? >> shannon: it's interesting in that polling seems to show that the public at least is changing its perception of this investigation by samples. let's look at one from "cbs news." it asked this question saying you know about the investigation, do you think it's just a bite or is the investigation political motivated? this is from "cbs news." they say 53% say politically motivated and 44% say justified. a cnn poll around the same time
8:09 pm
said do you approve or disapprove of the way robert mueller is handling the investigation? a 4% drop from march to may. fewer people say they believe he's actually doing a good job with this. do you think public opinion is turning on this? >> i do. i think america is getting tired of it. they've been here in russia, russia, russia from adam schiff and nancy pelosi and chuck schumer for more than a year, but there is no evidence of that. the only evidence that we have is the democrats spending money overseas to engage russians to help them build this bogus dossier. that is where the direct evidence is. so when they criticize night after night after night the president of the united states and say all these things but there's actually no evidence. but we do have evidence that there were people implanted into the trump campaign who essentially spied on the president's campaign. it's just wrong. >> shannon: we are not naming because we're working to confirm
8:10 pm
through all reliable sources that we can exactly who we are talking about. there are all kinds of names out there and all kinds of theories out there but if we are talking about somebody who was outside the campaign but questioning people connected to the campaign, to the semantics matter here? are we playing with semantics if we are saying somebody infiltrated the campaign, outside the campaign, those are important distinctions, or are they not? >> they are. and let's remember according to all the officials this is a counterintelligence operation, not a criminal investigation. our government will afford each of the political candidates for the presidency -- when it was time to two, hillary clinton or donald trump. they get secret service protection. they get briefings from the cia. if there were truly trying to protect the trump campaign from the russians they should have told donald trump and his senior people in the campaign about those efforts. but you only see that in the trump campaign. didn't see it in the clinton campaign, so semantics do matter and counterintelligence, it's treated totally different than a criminal investigation, which the president was assured was not happening.
8:11 pm
>> shannon: i would ask you to respond to something quickly. this comes from morris, who used to run the bill clinton campaign and has worked with the clintons. he says the idea of having an enemy when you are the subject of a special prosecutor is an important one. he said that clinton survived because he was able to make ken starr the enemy. this president's critics say he's doing the same thing to mueller. >> if you look at bringing on rudy giuliani. his proximity to comey and mueller i think was a very savvy move by the president. he understands, he's worked with these gentlemen in the past and he's been out there very publicly making the case that it's going to be played out in many ways in the public opinion polls so giuliani and the trump campaign is very savvy and very much understanding that you have to win the public debate as wel well. >> shannon: the polls show that that opinion seems to be moving in their direction. now we will await the official reports in whatever form we eventually get them. great to have you with us. >> thanks, shannon. >> shannon: the other cable
8:12 pm
networks tonight did not air the president's nashville rally, instead focusing on a tweet by roseanne barr that led abc to almost immediately cancel her show. no mention of president trump at his speech but trace gallagher is tracking it all. >> good evening. this was a destructive pattern. it roseanne barr would tweet, apologize, then tweet again taking herself a deeper hole. it began by her responding to a tweet accusing former valerie jarrett of hiding obama misdeeds. but roseanne racially attacked jarrett, who was born in iran by saying "muslim brotherhood and "planet of the apes" had a baby equals vijay." social media went crazy. roseanne then apologized to jarrett and all of americans for making a bad joke but the damage was done. abc canceled the reboot of roseanne. wanda sykes, who consulted on the show, quit and valerie jarrett responded on msnbc.
8:13 pm
watch. >> i think we have to turn it into a teaching moment. i'm fine. i'm worried about all of the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense. the person was walking down the street minding their own business and they see somebody cling to their purse or run across the street. >> roseanne barr's twitter battle also included liberal billionaire george soros and chelsea clinton with her tweeting "chelsea soros clinton" implying she had married into the family. good morning, might give a middle name is victoria. i imagine george soros nephews are lovely people, i'm just not married to one. roseanne later offered an apology to clinton but not without taking a dig at george soros and another mild jab at chelsea clinton writing "sorry to have tweeted incorrect info about you. please forgive me. by the way, george soros is a nazi who turned in his fellow jews to be murdered in german
8:14 pm
concentration camps and stole their wealth -- were you aware of that? but we all make mistakes, right chelsea? "rumors that soros collaborated with nazis have been debunked. an insult to holocaust victims, jewish people and anyone who honors the truth. it should be noted roseanne barr has a history of being controversial both on her show and in real life back in the '90s, the show "roseanne" much to abc's displeasure routinely met with deals like gay marriage, abortion. she has found herself deep in social and political issues to running for president in 2012. we should note, breaking just seconds ago, roseanne said that she would quit twitter and just 2 minutes ago she tweeted this and i'm quoting. "don't feel sorry for me, guys. i just want to apologize to the hundreds of people and wonderful writers, all liberal and talented actors who lost their
8:15 pm
jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet." there goes the valve to quit twitter for roseanne barr. >> shannon: maybe it was just sort of like a temporary quit. a little bit of a reprieve. thank you for tracking all the very latest developments. great to see you. >> you too. >> shannon: embattled government governor announced he has a resigning from office amid a sexual misconduct scandal and allegations of misuse of a charity donor list. the drama is looming large over the state's senate race were vulnerable democratic incumbent claire mccaskill has been highlighting the firestorm and hopes that could tarnish her republican opponent. attorney general josh ali. >> the governor has done the right thing by the state of missouri today and resigning his office. now the state of missouri can move forward to what is going to be a better day. >> shannon: senator mccaskill says the governor's resignation -- i also wish my very best to governor person who will be taking over in a difficult situation.
8:16 pm
another tough senate race in tennessee where the president touchdown to support congresswoman marsha blackburn. after taking the stage with the commander-in-chief she will join us live just minutes on now. the president had plenty of praise, no mention of roseanne barr. let's bring in fox news politics editor, editor of the halftime report, chris stirewalt. you wrote about this today. welcome. she talked about the fact that all of us need to be careful wherever you are in the political spectrum. people who have embraced famous people who speak what they feel -- their voices being left out but everybody is human and everybody's going to make mistakes. so do people embrace everything roseanne has said, do they walk away from some of it? what's the smart thing for people to do? based on one of their convictions are? >> the president and his followers were so excited that roseanne barr or at least her character on television was embracing him and that the show was popular. >> shannon: gave them a voice. >> it was evidence that their movement was succeeding and that
8:17 pm
these blue-collar working-class white voters who felt overlooked and neglected by the system, that they had a voice and that there was cultural change happening and they ate it by the bushel barrel. they were into it. and of course they were reminded of something. roseanne barr has been a train wreck since she was -- that is horrible public persona. the whole point of roseanne barr is being awful and shocking people and trace referenced some of the highlights from her career, which he traffics in these gross conspiracy theories. she has these shocking opinions. whether it's a put on or whether she's unwell, or whatever, who knows. don't embrace somebody just because they join your team. i watched a bunch of republicans who probably had never even heard the first three tracks on college dropout suddenly say kanye west is great, we love kanye west. slow down. you can make up your own mind about who you like and who you don't like as an artist, as an entertainer, as a creative force. don't let politics make you too
8:18 pm
stupid. >> shannon: if you like my mom used to always say don't be so enamored with the preacher that if he stumbles that you completely lose your faith. we are all human, we are all going to make mistakes and people will disappoint you regardless of where you are in the political spectrum. we will talk with congressman blackbird sarpy. let's talk about some of the other big senate races where the g.o.p. is defending seats and they may have a tough time. >> the republicans, and you just heard finally got rid of his government. throw a necktie on. if you are resigning the office of governor there, governor greitens, maybe throw a little one on. >> shannon: didn't have time. quick resignation. >> that's off ali's back. missouri, west virginia, north dakota and indian are the four seats whether republicans feel their best about their chances and they know they will get a couple of those unless something -- a freak storm happens. they figure they can get a couple. but then, but then, the republicans, even though this is the best map that any party has
8:19 pm
had since the '20s relief where the democrats are defending three times more seats than the republicans, arizona, nevada, tennessee represent states where they will have to work to defend. maybe texas. we will see how all rourke and cruz how that all pans out. there's three where they know their playing defense. blackford should be able to pull this out because donald trump is the tip of a spear of probably ten, $15 million in negative advertising that they will dump out on the very popular governor and that be blackburn's job now, her negatives are high. she is not a super popular politician in her state. she's got to ruin radisson's reputation and have them hate him just as much. >> shannon: he is a popular guy. he's been getting praise from senator corker, the guy hoping to replace. >> he is the model what they do in tennessee. is a centrist, he's a down the middle guy kind of business men so they like and so she's just going to have to rough them up.
8:20 pm
the republicans will need to have enough money down his britches. >> shannon: will ask about that. secretary of state mike pompeo a detailed report about what religious minorities are facing. including singling out north korea for stifling religious area. what impact is that public accusation have the upcoming summit? president trump in nashville tonight stumping for congresswoman marsha blackburn. >> crime is down in the country. but we need republicans and we need to get out and vote for marsha. >> shannon: running for senate with the president's endorsement. she joins us live next. ♪ er 200 allergens. like those from buddy. because stuffed animals are clearly no substitute for real ones. feel the clarity. and live claritin clear.

8:27 pm
leave women with only one abortion provider in the entire state. granted an emergency injunction against the law. the case continues in a lower court. the president fresh off a rally in tennessee drumming up support for senate hopeful republican marsha blackburn. she is hoping to replace outgoing senator bob corker in a race that is considered for now a toss-up. >> she loves your state. she loves her country. she's going to win. marsha blackburn. >> shannon: fresh off the stage with the president congresswoman marsha blackburn. thank you for joining us today. >> good to be with you. thank you. >> shannon: you're facing a man who was a democrat, a very popular former governor. scott and praises from one of your republican colleagues on the senate side, the man you hope to replace, senator bob corker. a lot of folks have nice things to say. where do you go from here? >> where we go is right to work. that is what we have been doing every day, shannon.
8:28 pm
just working hard to get out our message and to earn every single vote. and today was a great day for us. we had a fund-raiser. we had a rally that was a packed house at nashville's municipal auditorium and we are looking forward to continuing to build that energy and build that network that is necessary to win this race. >> shannon: i know you've been confronted by women on the campaign trail who don't understand your support of president trump. they don't support him. the governor, he actually pulls better with women in this race than you do. what a do you attribute that yu and how we try to close that gap? >> the way to close that gap is pointing to the fact that women every day, donald trump's numbers every day improved with women because women know he is working hard to make their lives better. look at what has happened with the economy, with wage increases, with job opportunities. these are all things that are important. the economy, jobs.
8:29 pm
that economic security issue is the number one issue with women. women also are incredibly supportive of what he is doing when it comes to the issue of immigration, securing the border, ending illegal entry of gangs, of drugs, of trafficking. those are places of focus. it is a way for us to build bridges with many women who are independent and democrats, and i will tell you i have republicans, independents and democrats all who are active in our campaign and who are supporting me. >> shannon: let's talk about another big issue. i just talked to their about the supreme court deciding it would not get in the way of this arkansas law that requires any clinics who are using this to codrug protocol to perform abortions to have some connection with the doctor that with and have hospital admitting privileges in the case that there was some kind of complication. two planned parenthood clinics basically say they won't be able to perform abortions in arkansas. i know you headed up the house
8:30 pm
select panel that was looking into allegations against planned parenthood. what do you make of their allegation that women are going to be left with basically almost no option there in arkansas based on what happened at the supreme court? >> i feel like part of what you were hearing from planned parenthood is a little bit of a reach. what arkansas has done and what the court has agreed with is that there should be additional protections for women and for unborn children and this is something that arkansas decided they wanted to put in place in their state laws and it will go into effect. >> shannon: this is what planned parenthood tweeted today. the fight is far from over. this law cannot and must not stand. we will not stop fighting for every person's right to have access to safe and legal abortions. it's clear they plan to continue the legal fight. a number of similar laws around the country are being challenge
8:31 pm
challenged. there are split decisions with the court. where do you think we are going as far as this issue ending up at the supreme court again on a larger scale? >> that's exactly the right way to look at it. where does it take us from here? and what we hear is if these groups are for safe, legal, rare, then they should want some protections and restrictions that are going to be there to help inform women, to help educate women, to protect women and to make certain that they are going to be safe, to make certain that there is that relationship with a physician, with a health care provider. to me that just makes sense that you would want that for it to be the safest possible condition for these women. >> shannon: not long ago the supreme court struck down some similar regulations in the state of texas. we will continue to track this case as well as many others that are out there. congresswoman, thanks for making
8:32 pm
time. good to see you. >> good to be with you, thanks shannon. >> shannon: a surge in violence over the weekend in chicago sparking a provocative conversation about how the media covers crime and race issues. on the defensive facing criticism. how netflix is responding today. that story and our real news roundup when we return. wow. he n recognize you. seriously. i don't even recognize myself. and thanks to my cashrewards credit card from navy federal with never-expiring rewards it's gonna be a killer honeymoon. woo! maui!! boom open to the armed forces, the dod, veterans and their families. navy federal credit union. it can detect a threat using ai, and respond 60 times faster. it lets you know where your data lives, down to the very server. it keeps your insights from prying eyes,

8:36 pm
>> shannon: yet another violent weekend in chicago, 36 shot and at least seven dad. an extra 1300 police officers patrolling the streets in an effort to crack down on crime. the violence comes just days after president trump tweeted the chicago police are unable to do their jobs because of the city's bureaucracy. the president also mentioned in chicago tonight calling out mayor rahm emanuel and questions about the way the media is or isn't covering the violence in chicago. one provocative article in particular getting a lot of attention. let's talk about it with tonight's panel. fox news contributor and radio talk show host richard fowler.
8:37 pm
and kayleigh mcenany. great to have both of you with us tonight. i want to read this piece in part. in "newsweek," in chicago it's parkland every weekend, but the media hasn't turned this frenzy of shooting into around-the-clock marathon like they did with parkland. there's a reason. a young black males life is not worth reporting when it's taken by another blackmail. that's the real racism that prevails in america's newsroom. the marginalization of black urban life. your response? >> i think there's some truth to what he's saying. when we ask the questions to black lives really matter, they are talking about what happens between police and african-americans but they are also talking about the fact that in our communities, chicago is not alone. baltimore, detroit. new york. you have the cities that are littered with violence and the reason why we have violence in the city is for a couple of reasons. one you have underfunded schools. two you have a lack of opportunity. basically people are trapped in
8:38 pm
a pressure cooker and we are not doing anything to try to get them out of it. this is the failure of our government at all levels starting with the mayor and all the way up to congress. >> shannon: there was something else mayor hit on and it was also in this piece in his "newsweek" piece, in his piece he said that this is also about fatherlessness. something that rahm emanuel has mentioned this way. he said you've heard me before talking about this epidemic. there are four ps to pump, policing, penalty, parenting. you need to speak to all of it, not some of it. there are some people who are upset about what they are reading. it's a touchy subject. he fights back to a peach by juan williams with the fact that in the african-american community, now 72% of births are out of wedlock. we have to start on what the problem. >> he also mentioned white communities and you see fatherlessness increase there.
8:39 pm
it's a societal problem. it happens in all races. it's a cultural problem and it certainly contributes to a lot of the violence we see but in terms of what government can do there's not much they can do to solve fatherlessness but to richard's point, you can solve economic opportunity and provide opportunity to get out of these communities, to get into a society or a situation where you are prospering. that's why i'm pleased to see president trump historically low african-american unemployment, hispanic unemployment. these are the types of things the government can do. they can't solve fatherlessness. >> the government can solve fatherless homes. we have a problem, i think republicans and democrats have both identified, we have a prison industrial complex that is ridiculous and outrageous that cost us billions of dollars. if we really cared about ending fatherless homes, if we really cared about fixing this problem then there would be a march on capitol hill every day to make sure that our criminal justice system works for everybody. when african-american man goes to jail for two times the sentence that a white person does for the same crime we have a larger problem on our hands

sure that we provide mothers and single fathers and single grandmothers and single grandfathers the support and resources they need so they can meet the needs of their children and that's what's not happening in chicago. that's what's not happening in detroit and that's what's not happening in baltimore, activists that are over and over a saying fund our schools. please fix our broken communities. please bring opportunity back and that's not happening. >> at the end of the day it is about love and i was very touched to see a community who all these fathers showed up at the school and were therefore kids who did come from fatherless homes because it does come down for love. you're right about that. >> shannon: your mom is a perfect example of that. my mom for much of my life was a single mom. netflix pushing back on claims it's making a sharp left turn after making a deal with former president and first lady barack and michelle obama. the company's chief content operator telling an industry event tuesday the company is not the obama network. and that the two would not be producing any news programming. the lawyers for morgan freeman demanding that cnn retract a
