>> president trump wrapping up his meeting with g-7 leaders in quebec, calling the talks, quote, very successful and says the days of robbing the u.s., quote, piggy bank with trade barriers needs to. leland: the past minutes of president trump flying out east for his first ever meeting with kim jong-un in singapore. we're on the ground in singapore with last minute preparations before the big sit-down. elizabeth: plus, brand new indictments friday on robert mueller's investigation, yet again targeting the president's former campaign chairman.
welcome to america's news headquarters from washington on a very busy saturday. i'm elizabeth prann. leland: busy saturday near and busy sunday in singapore where the preparations continue. nice to be with you at home, i'm leland vittert. president trump just leaving the g-7 summit in the past couple of minutes, where he spent the better part of two days meeting with u.s. allies and world leaders. the summit coming on the heels of president trump's tariffs and new trade restrictions hitting many of those g-7 nations. kevin is in quebec city. give us a sense, how frosty was the reception that the president received there? >> good to be with you, lucky, not terribly frosty on the surface. the president did make it clear during his statement, the closing statement before making his way east as you pointed out that there would be a serious set of consequences if nations, not just the g-7 nations leland,
but nations beyond the g-7, if they were to retaliate against the u.s. for, say the new steel and aluminum tariffs for example. >> if they retaliate, they'd be making a mistake. there's a trade imbalance. they do so much more business with us than we do with them, that we can't lose that. >> can't lose, the president says, he began his day later than expected. he was taking part in this gender equality breakfast and the president showed up about 15 to 20 minutes late. of course, he made the comments you just saw ahead of his departure to singapore. by the way, today, he also tipped had his about you shall for free and fair trade without barriers. >> that's the way it should be. no tariffs, no barriers, that would-- that's the way it should be, and no subsidies. it's going to change 100% and tariffs are going to come way
down because people cannot continue to do that. we're like the piggy bank that everybody's robbing and that ends. >> that ends, says the president. now, he did talk about nafta, leland. you and i have talked about this before, the president, quite honestly, has not been a big fan of nafta. he sort of reiterated here he's probably going to lean towards two separate bilateral agreements, one with mexico and canada, an although they didn't make official announcements on that end today. leland. leland: kevin corke in canada, thank you. now joining us to discuss more on this and the effect here at home, congressman roger marshall representing kansas' first congressional district. 1st congressional district and first in america for agriculture and agricultural exports. the reciprocal tariffs as a result of the president's tariffs and trade policies hit your district particularly hard. how worried are your constituents?
>> certainly trade and tariffs topping everybody's minds back home. agriculture is the tip of the spear when it comes to retaliation. we saw the price of sorgum and it's hitting us quickly. leland: what does that mean for a former -- farmer in your district. >> and already, the trade issues are creating more incertainty and driving the price of commodities down. we're walking into the harvest season for wheat. we still have wheat left from two years ago sitting on empty runways in the middle of nowhere in kansas so we can't ship anywhere, what are we going to do with this year's crop. leland: the president addressed that a little earlier at his press conference, essentially saying, look, i'm worried not only about farmers, but about manufacturing jobs as well. take a listen. >> they're either going to make the trades fair because our
farmers have been hurt. you look at our farmers, for 15 years, the graph is going just like this, down. our farmers have been hurt, our workers have been hurt, our companies have moved out and moved to mexico and other countries, including canada. now, we are going to fix that situation. leland: he says we're going to fix it, what it sound like though, the cure might be worse than the disease right now. >> leland, it's been a tough couple of months in agriculture, but there's lots of opportunities here. i appreciate the president's commitment. mexico was right. mexico was ready to finish up a nafta agreement. we met with the mexico ambassador this past week, a great conversation. canada doesn't want to get serious about negotiating right now so i understand where the president is coming from, until canada respects us and quits having high tariffs on milk and stealing our intellectual property we have to deal with them, but mexico is ready. leland: canada is stealing our intellectual property or china is stealing the intellectual
property. >> yes. leland: and canada stealing that is news to me. >> in you're in the movie industry, and music industry, and canada into our markets as well. leland: this brings up an important point, because at the same time that you're dealing with our allies in putting tariffs on, whether it be european goods or canadian goods or mexican goods, the president is trying to deal with china. would it be more important to focus on china first before dealing with our friends? >> i think we need to take care of mexico. i think once mexico agreement is made, canada will fall in line. the european union will fall in line and then we can work together on china. leland: bringing it back to the farmers in your district, can they afford the retaliatory tariffs that are going to come in the next months or years as the agreements you talk about are worked out? >> i think if we get nafta and the european union we can survive what's got to happen with china. leland: that's a big if.
>> the president has to do with better trade agreements, i believe in him. it's a year and a half now, and it's time to get mexico done and canada will fall in line. leland: you're talking a year and a half to get mexico maybe done and then canada, then europe and then china. that's a lot of pain for people in your district. would they be better served by the status quo? >> i think agriculture in the short-term probably would, but in the long-term, noment we have to go after china. china is stealing maybe $500 billion of our intellectual property every year and we send over sorgum to them and they stop shipments in mid ride over there so we have to address some problems with china. i understand that, and my ag producers are willing to stand beside the president on china, but we need nafta yesterday. leland: willing to stand beside him despite the pain to get nafta done. >> it's a group of people, they're patriotic and understand what's going on with china.
when i had the opportunity to explain what's going on with the intellectual property theft, they stand besides the president. leland: north worthy he can afford to lose points in your district. republican plus 40? >> and growing over day. leland: and good to see you, congressman. thank you. >> thanks for having me. elizabeth: the president is headed to the meeting with kim jong-un in singapore. our rich edson is there with a look ahead to the big tuesday meeting. hi, rich. >> hey, liz. president trump just outlined the potential for this summit. he says at the minimum he wants to develop a dialog with kim jong-un, perhaps even a relationship with the north korean. at a mass mum, he alluded to the fact that this could be a larger deal in the making. the president claims within the first minute, he will understand and know if kim jong-un is serious about all of this and then he stressed that the united states in all of this will only
give north korea one chance on this dialog. >> so, it's a one-time, it's a one-time shot and i think it's going to work out very well. that's why i feel positive because it makes so much sense. >> in between getting to know kim and broad agreement is a very long list of details to work through. how will north korea surrender its nuclear weapons programs, ballistic missiles or chemical weapons. what access would inspectors have to a mountainous, secretive countries and ensure kim's safety. and teams have been discussing this and more. the president says north korea has been working well with the u.s. and in his words, so far so good. reporters also asked the president will he would raise human rights and north korea's notorious gulag system when he meets with kim jong-un, the president says the u.s. will raise every issue.
president and secretary of state pompeo are set to arrive here in 24 hours. and it's a spur of the moment developments, and an unpredi unpredictability of the kim jong-un, 0 when he meets with him. the president is known as spontaneous and canceled the meeting for a week and then it's back on. as for how this will be, he says he's confident. elizabeth: itrich, thank you so much. let's bring in strategyist, general jack keane. >> thanks for having me. elizabeth: i want to get to some of what we might hear out of the summit. first and foremost, the format. the president says i'll know right away how it's going to go.
i'm a people person, i know how it's going to go. how is it going to go, down to for malty and the handshake. >> i had that kim jong-un has asked for a one-on-one obviously with interpreters, i suspect the reason for that, this is a big deal for kim jong-un, he's never met the leader of the free world like this. president trump is probably one of the largest physical men he's ever met in his entire life. president trump has a larger than life personality, kim jong-un is familiar with having seen him on television. i don't think he wants to appear intimidated as he meets this personality and the leader of america, so, that's i think the reason for the one-on-one, 15 minutes, let's break the ice together and get to know each other. elizabeth: does that surprise you to learn that information? do you think that makes him less vulnerable if he just meets sort of one-on-one in a very-- >> i think getting people comfortable is really important. president trump, anybody that's been around him and i've been
around him a little bit not much like other people, he puts people at ease. he's got significant social graces. he knows how to deal with people. so, he'll interact develop -- very well with kim jong-un and how comfortable he'll be. i've been told they'll go to one plus one, each one of them will have an advisor. we've already seen who kim jong-un's advisor is, he's been at the meetings and came to washington d.c. i suspect president trump's advisor will be mike pompeo, secretary of state. elizabeth: okay, so, blatantly right now, this administration is on a different path than administrations previous. why is this so different? >> well, first of all, the situation got worse, and that's number one. i mean, north korea's weaponizing icbm's. they started in the obama administration and accelerated it here recently. secondly, the real reason, certainly is that president trump pulled out all the stops.
he got three u.n. resolutions and took 80% of north korean revenue one form or another by the maximum pressure on sanctionings. it's enforcement of the sanctions, and you've got to give credit to the state department for that. and the credibility of a military option being put back on the table and first announced by secretary mattis, no accident he was the first one to say that, given the credibility of him personally and president trump never letting go of it. those two things clearly have changed, forcing a reset of the entire strategic frame work. elizabeth: involving china? yes or no? >> yes, china is a big part of that. china knows that trump is not obama and they have to make concessions. though they wanted to slow roll him, they're going to work with him more than they've had to work with another president.
elizabeth: before you go. i have to have your reaction just on one issue of the g-7 summit. obviously there's a couple of headlines out of the g-7 summit. one sound bite i heard should russia be included in this dialog and i think that you may have an opinion on this. >> i'm surprised by that. i absolutely think it's a mistake to do that, here is the reason. we've got russian troops in ukraine, they're sitting there and killed 10,000 ukrainians and their boots are there, their tanks are there, their rockets are there, their artillery is there, and until they're out of the ukraine and ready to do something about crimea, this he should not be welcomed back into the international order as a responsible nation, having violated those rights. elizabeth: right. >> so they stay out. elizabeth: general keane, thank you so much. it's a busy week and i suspect you may be in high demand. we'll keep an eye out for you, general. we appreciate it. and we'll have this leading up to the summit.
chris wallace will be live in singapore for fox news sunday tomorrow. check your lo he -- local listings for time and channel and special report, and media buzz, howie kirtz and his panel will look how the media is covering this, and so a very packed weekend and week ahead of this very big summit. leland: it's just starting. overseas islamic militants killed a u.s. soldiers and wounded four others. it happened outside of the capital of mogadishu. coalition forces were conducting against al-shabaab when they were hit with mortar fire. president trump shared condolences on twitter, my thoughts and prayers are with the families of servicemen killed, an and fellow servicemen wounded in somalia. they are all truly heroes. elizabeth: president trump's former campaign chair paul manafort hit with a new
indictment from special counsel robert mueller. manafort's legal team is starting to push back. garrett tenney. >> paul manafort is facing charges of obstruction of justice and conspiring to obstruct justice, and other charges he's facing for financial crimes. in court filings, the special counsel accused manafort trying to coach two witnesses whom investigators have contacted about his lobbying work in ukraine. mueller's team has also charged a russian business partner for manafort for taking part in that tampering effort. the special counsel unveiled these before a judge. manafort's attorney saying in a court filing, the new charge of witness tampering made by the special counsel should be seen for what it is to derail modified conditions of release at the 11th hour, the court should not condone heavyhanded
gamemanship by the special counsel when with charge of increased flight in this case. >> and these are alleged crimes that took place before the work on the president's campaign and that's a point that the white house continues to stress. >> i do know that from what i read, with respect to mr. manafort, most, if not all of that activity was before he was part of donald trump's campaign. >> and paul manafort's russian business partner who is also charged is not appearing in court and he's back in russia, and he's been accused of having ties to russian intelligence. leland: more destruction on hawaii's big island as lava from that volcano is on everything in
its path. and jeff sessions decision not to defend one of the popular parts of obamacare, the protection against health care insurance companies using preexisting conditions to deny coverage. what that means for you. and we're going to talk to a whiskey disstiller who is worried about his products being slapped with new tariffs overseas. what he wants to hear from president trump to ease his concerns. ♪ i'm never gonna be able to sleep with this cold.

>> crews in hawaii are surveying the erupting kilauea volcano on hawaii's big island. they made it to the coast with the mayor kim saying nearly 600 homes have been destroyed so far. experts say lava is spewing from the east side of the volcano with no guess as to when the flow will eventually stop. ♪ >> is the justice department now offering insurance companies a little bit of wiggle room? it could mean that they would be able to deny coverage or offer higher premiums to those with
preexisting conditions. democrats say if that happens it will be campaign gold as though protections are one of the most popular parts of obamacare. ellison barber here to break down what the justice department is doing and what it could mean politically. >> good to see you. so, it was a unique rare move for the department of justice to say they weren't going to defend this in court. on thursday, the trump administration did this and they said they would not defend the affordable care act. and in the filing, sided with republican-led states who say the mandate is unconstitutional and so are two provisions meant to protect people with preexisting conditions. president trump said that obamacare is a bad law and he wants to repeal and replace it, but repeatedly talked about how a replacement must protect people with preexisting conditions. said on twitter, i would not sign graham-cassidy if it did not cover pre-existing
conditions and told congress and 60 minutes something similar in the past couple of years. >> we should ensure that americans with pre-existing conditions have access to coverage, and that we have a stable transition for americans currently enrolled in the health careexchanges. i am going to take care of everybody. i don't care if it costs me votes or not. everybody's going to be taken care of, much better than they're taken care of now. >> in a letter addressed to house speaker paul ryan, jeff sessions why the department of justice will not defend the law in this case and says he made the decision with the approval of president trump. democrats in the house and senate released statements, and nancy pelosi called it sabotage and trying to detroy protections for preexisting conditions. health care is an issue that many democrats are running on, at least in part some say that the administration just gave the democrats running in these midterm elections an enormous
gift. representative jerry conley said you've handed us an issue we will ride into the sunset with. in the latest fox news polls, more voters say they view obamacare favorably than unfavorably, 3% there. this is one of the popular provisions in the affordable care act. leland: the department says they're not going to defend them. where in federal court or district? >> federal. in this particular situation, the justice department is saying they're taking an unprecedented step and not defend it in this situation. leland: we've seen the supreme court rule on this before. thank you. liz. elizabeth: coming up after the break, president trump touting tariffs to protect american industry. how the voters are responding to the president's handling of the economy. and chaotic moments outside of a popular coffee chain when a car

americans approve of president trump's handling of the economy. here to way in ross comiskey. always good to see you. this is my question, you've got the dow and stock markets near record highs, unemployment near record lows, huge innovation in places like denver where you live. 52% of americans approve how the president is handling of the economy and what are the other 48% complaining about? >> well, a lot of the issues where donald trump interacts with foreign countries in any way, trade, immigration, foreign policy generally, they're a little more negative about, but i also think some of it is just no matter what president trump does, some people are just bound and determined in their own minds, i'm just not going to like this guy and we saw it with other presidents as well, but more with trump than with others ap remains to be seen. are they going to vote based on whether they like him or like 3.8% unemployment. leland: it's fascinating you
bring that up. our friends over at axios brought up these data points that were profound. if you were to forecast the 2018 midterms historically by presidential approval, the g.o.p. would lose 68 seats. view of the economy, based off the polls we just showed you the g.o.p. would gain 55 seats. there has to be something in the middle there. >> yeah, i agree with you. absolutely. i think it sounds trite, but it's going to come down to who is more motivated. it has felt like democrats were more motivated to get out to the polls in this cycle than republicans, but the problem for democrats is they're not really giving people a reason to vote for them other than just saying, i i'm not this gu or don't support this guy and that's not usually enough. leland: a lot of the complaints you hear about president trump are almost more about style than substance. foreign policy, he gets high marks for going to kim jong-un
in singapore and sitting down for this meeting, but americans are still skeptical. take a look at this. will north korea ever give up its nukes. now 28% versus 60 no. march 2018, 16%-76 said no. so you've had about 12% more americans now say they might give up their nukes. in terms of midterm election politics, how important are you seeing this summit? >> i think it's enormous. i think donald trump has staked a lot of of his own credibility on it as a dealmaker and when this first started going on, a lot of people are saying, this is very high stakes and it's going to lead to war or not and i don't think that really is the area where it's high stakes. i think it's actually high stakes for domestic politics. i think that trump has a lot riding on this and to the extent that his numbers are kind of negative in areas that deal with international relations, this is a way where he could change that almost overnight.
leland: even hawkish members of the republican caucus up on capitol hill, even hawkish members who are fans of president trump worry that for just the reasons you point out, the president will have dealitis, essentially being willing to do anything kim jong-un wants to get a deal, even if in many view, it would be a bad deal, agree? >> i don't agree. i think that barack obama was that guy, and i think that donald trump actually said explicitly, maybe it was yesterday, i'm willing to walk away. i did it once before. i'm willing to walk away again. i think it's more important for donald trump's own psyche as well-- i think it's better to get a good deal than no deal. leland: to push back, the president said he was willing to talk away from a deal with zte, and the chinese and so many now even republicans are saying he rolled over on that one. >> and i think he did, i agree with that criticism. leland: why do you trust him now that he's willing to hold out for a good deal with north korea
when you're saying he rolled over with china? >> yeah, that's a fair question. i think the difference is that the north korea thing is so much more out in public. zte, those who pay attention to politics notice that, but this not so much. not just america is talking about it, the world is talking about it and i think trump will think about it differently and i think he did the zte think in order to get more help from china behind the scenes on the north korea thing. so, that's my take there. leland: well, we've seen the chinese use north korea as leverage in these trade deals. ross, thanks for being with us. we could talk to you a lot longer. you're headed to singapore, so if this summit keeps stretching out like the president said it might, you're going to be our man on the ground in singapore, all right? >> you've got it, leland. thanks for having me back. leland: we're counting on you, safe travels. liz. elizabeth: the eu, canada and mexico hitting back at the u.s.

>> as we heard from kevin corke and some reporting out of the g-7, canada and the eu looking to strike at the heart of american business with retaliatory tariffs that could take effect next month. mexico already has a massive tariff in place on u.s. bourbon. american distilleries, many who are small businesses will worry they'll literally get crushed as countries around the world strike back and president trump's trade policies. joining me founder and general manager of catoctin, these tariffs hit, what does it do to your business? >> the business in europe, we've just started and we're working five years to build the european business and starting to get traction there and takes time to get that going and now we have customers in the u.k. who are literally going to the shelves and they're going to see a 25%
price increase on what is already a relatively expensive product to stay what's available there. leland: you think about it and especially in the u.k. and most of europe, you've got the vat added and then the import tariff and then add 25% to that. so, suddenly, your bourbon rather than buying it from you, they're going to buy japanese whiskey or something else. >> there's home grown stuff in whiskey, just like in america and starting to sell it over there. leland: the wall of unintended consequences, many of the president's supporters say, too bad if it's going to hurt small businesses like your own, but we've got major trade imbalances with these countries. they're note treating us, quote, unquote, fairly, therefore we need to do this even if it hurts you. >> the simple reality is, the types of jobs this is going to hurt are the very ones the president wants to support the most. it's hurting agricultural jobs and manufacturing jobs.
so, big companies and small companies alike, we're all members of the distilled spirits counsel, talking the owner of jack daniels, us, relatively small company, but there are thousands of us in the u.s. in 50 states and those agricultural and manufacturing jobs are impacted by this. the largest export of agriculture, you know, to germany is our largest export is whiskeyme whiskeyment-- whiskey and that's grain. >> do you think that the president and supporters don't believe you? >> i don't think they thought it through. leland: we know that mnuchin and gary cohn before he left talked about this. >> jack daniels has given downward guidance in their recent quarterly earnings, they're saying 50% of their earnings are exports and that's a big number.
leland: 50% for them. 25% for you. how much business do you have to lose, we'll talk exports, before some of your 20 employees don't have jobs anymore? >> well, it's also sort of-- i'm not sure how long we can endure it. we have some reserves, we can make things and adjust things and focus more at home so that's definitely something we're going to have to start to look at, but what's lost is perhaps the chance to grow quickly into a new market which would, of course, allow us to add more jobs. leland: so, what is your message? you said you're conservative. what's your message to president trump? is it fair trade? is it, hey, we should back off tariffs to our allies. hey, i'm willing to endure this as a business owner for the good of the country? your message? >> i think my message would be, i'm a free trade republican, i've always been a free trade republican. in that sense i believe that open markets, let americans compete. we have the best whiskey in the world. leland: he would tell you that
there isn't free and open markets because our places are taxed all over the world and we don't tax reciproically those coming into the u.s. >> i guess we'll see. if the tariffs happen, if could be a year, i heard earlier on the show, even 18 months, that's a big impact on a lot of small businesses, a lot of people that aren't going to be able to start to compete head to head with other producers in europe. leland: you make a good point because other people have talked about, well, it could be 18 months until this gets negotiated, it could be longer, quote, unquote, in congress, they're working on it. that's cold comfort for you. 18 months is a long time in a small businesses. >> in a small businesses, absolutely. leland: that's the difference between what, hiring people, firing people. >> or just treading water for a water while we try to figure out what to do next. leland: and your competitors-- >> they're stroking ahead and getting ahead of us. leland: scott, we wish you luck, starting a business in 2009 wasn't an easy thing to do.

fiscal, and national security conservative and that's our message and seems to be resonating and that's what folks he believe in and what they got with trey gowdy. elizabeth: how are republicans setting themselves apart? i'm not mistaken you had a town hall forum on wednesday. some of the critics were saying everyone was trying to align themselves closer to trump. there wasn't a way to distinguish between the candidates and how are you doing that? >> every person is supporting the president and i think all republicans in this primary want this president to succeed, succeed on immigration and successful on reducing the deficit and bringing down the debt. all of us have a different skillset and each one of us are drawing contrast, what's our life experience and business experience? what have we done to this point. anybody can say anything during the campaign, you all know that, you see it all the time. what we're trying to communicate, look at our record, look at what we've done, what i've done and why i'm best qualified to sir of the fourth
district in congress and continuing the conservative legacy. all of us agree we're sportyive -- supportive of the president and how can we best be the ally in congress. elizabeth: i'm curious as to what issues you found really the most hot bed out of that discussion on wednesday. are we talking about immigration? are we talking about people saying the effect of tax reform? what are the south carolinaions concerned about on tuesday. if there are 12 folks, it's going to a runoff unless somebody gets 50% plus one and with 12 people, it's hard to get to 50%. >> a runoff, we're preparing for that. the two biggest issues people are worried about in south carolina, the trillion dollar deficit and open borders. that's what we've been talking about, whether i'm in a debate or a coffee shop.
how to end trillion dollar deficit. we cannot continue to go from 20 trillion in debt to 40 trillion in the next ten, 20 years, and we cannot afford that. people are deeply concerned about for decades we've had virtually an open border policy. there are millions of people in the country, unauthorized, not supposed to be here. we have gangs and violence coming across the southern border. people are worriedment what do we do to reduce the deficit, the debt and get control of our borders again. if we don't have control of our borders, we're not really a country. elizabeth: those are issues that not only south carolinians are concerned about, but voters across the nation. my last question, you did pick up a major enforcement. what group is now supporting you and has that propelled you? >> i'm thrilled to be endorsed by club for growth. the same that supported jim demint and tom cotton and ted cruz and mike lee and the great conservatives fighting on capitol hill every day. i can't be-- i'm so thankful to be in the company of those conservative
giants and thankful for the great work that club for growth has engaged in providing limited government and economic freedom and i'll be true to that endorsement in congress. elizabeth: good luck and keep us posted. leland. leland: a new rule adopted by the democratic national committee could prevent bernie sanders running as a democrat for president. the rule adopted friday is aimed at nondemocrats speaking the party's 2020 nomination. sanders is an independent. and the the change is it to get those on the ticket to run and serve as democrats. dnc it's part of a push to limit the power of so-called super delegates. elizabeth: and we have much more ahead in the next hour of america's news headquarters. a lot going on this saturday. president trump heads out from the g-7 summit saying it was good, despite tense comments from other world leaders.

we've got reporters in canada, in singapore on this saturday. i'm leland vittert. elizabeth: i'm elizabeth prann. here's what's making news right now. president trump is enroute to singapore for his historic meeting with kim jong un after holding what he calls very successful talks with g7 leaders. leland: u.s. officials accuse chinese hackers of stealing a massive amount of data on our underwater warfare technology. how they did it and what it can mean for the u.s. navy. elizabeth: and, of course, we're going to go live to the belmont stakes where justify will attempt to win horse racing's triple crown. well, president trump says he had a productive meeting with other world leaders during the g7 summit in canada. the president's claims contrast with strong rhetoric from u.s. allies following his announcement of broad trade restrictions and reform. kevin corke is in canada with the very latest.
kevin? >> reporter: hey this, liz. president trump's g7 experience was, quite frankly, pretty brief, but it could have a lasting impact on just how hard our global partners hit us. as you pointed out, the president is enroute to his next summit, over to singapore. more on that later. but he left here not before warning member nations that the days of unfair trade and excessive tariffs on u.s. goods are over. as for his relationship with the other leaders in attendance here, the president said this: >> the level of relationship is a ten. we have a great relationship. angela and emanuel and justin, i would say the relationship is a ten. and i don't blame them, i blame -- as i said -- i blame our past leaders for allowing this to happen. >> reporter: this as in unfair trade deals. now, the president also issued a stern washing to those who --
warning to those who plan to retaliate against the u.s. for grossly unfair trade deals. >> if they retaliate, they're making a mistake. because, you see, we have a tremendous trade imbalance. so when we try to bring our piece up a little bit so that it's not so bad and p hen they go up, right, the difference is they do so much more business with us than we do with them that we can't lose that. >> reporter: can't lose that, says the president. now, he did not, liz, take part in the traditional signing of the communique at the conclusion of the g7, but he did make notice of this idea that and a half a that as we know it -- nafta as we know it may not be there for much learning, sort of floating this idea of bilateral trade deals with canada and mexico. no official statement on that, just more talk. of course, we'll be following the details, but for now back to you. elizabeth: kevin, thank you so
much. leland? leland: from quebec city president trump now on his way to singapore for his much-anticipated summit with north korean dictator kim jong un. rich edson on the ground in singapore early sunday morning there as we look ahead to this meeting. things already underway there, rich? >> reporter: good afternoon or good evening or wherever you are, leland. there have been teams working here for weeks now. the president will be arriving within 24 hours, and he's saying that this is a one-time shot for north korea. we'll never have an opportunity like this again. the president says that within the first minute of meeting kim jong un tuesday, he'll know if he has a serious partner. but he says he thinks this will be a productive meeting. >> it's unknown territory in the truest sense, but i really feel confident. i feel that kim jong un wants to do something great for his people, and he has that opportunity. and he won't have that
opportunity again. >> reporter: the president says success in this could range from just establishing a good dialogue and relationship with kim to the beginning of a major agreement. the president acknowledges solving the most difficult issues will likely take multiple meetings. it is still unclear how much nuclear material kim jong un has or or where it's located in north korea. officials say they're also concerned about north korea's ballistic missile program and its chemical weapons. north korea says it wants security guarantees, whether that means the u.s. altering its military drills with south korea though defense secretary james mattis says u.s. military personnel levels in south korea are not part of these discussions. there's also the question of how and when the u.s. would phase out economic sanctions. for weeks the u.s. and north korea have been negotiating here, discussing these issues and more, though the president is leaving open the possibility of going off script. he says the results of this summit could always be a spur be
of the moment development with an unpredictable leader like kim jong un and one like president trump. when asked how he felt in his gut, the president says he feels confident. he was also asked by reporters whether he will bring up the human rights issues with north korea and its notorious gulag system. to that, the president says we will raise every issue. leland: real quick before you go, rich, so often in these foreign meetings everything is scripted from where the president's going to sit to how many times they're going to smile for the cameras, how many times they'll address the press. how much do we really know about what's going to happen here, and how much, as the president said, is going to be spur of the momentsome. >> reporter: we know very little about all of that. we know the location, a nice resort on an island here. but beyond that, we know very little. we know very little about specifics of what kim jong un will do and how he will arrive. there has been a team from the u.s. negotiating with the north koreans about all of that, there's been a separate team in the demilitarizedded zone who
have been negotiating the details of any agreement they would have. leland: the unknown unknowns here are significant even given how unusual in summit is. rich edison on to the ground covering for us for the next couple of days, thank you. liz? elizabeth elizabeth yes, unknowns and lots of moving parts. joining us now to discuss the possible outcome and the impacts on the diplomatic relations is democratic congressman rohan that. you wrote an op-ed in january, and it almost is just as relevant, but there was one part where you said any type of preemptive bloody nose strike would be a disaster, and that never happened. so actually you're in agreement with the president which respectfully may be something that could be a first. >> i am. i had met with a small group of legislators, with the president in the oval office, and i said to him if he pursues engagement, he's going to have the support of many progressive democrats. and i'm rooting for him to succeed. i think he's taken a very bold
step with meeting kim jong un, and i hope he's going to come back with some agreement. but i applaud him for doing this. elizabeth: there are other democrats who haven't been applauding him despite the progress. there was a letter from seven democrats that was sent to president trump, and this is just a piece of it up on our screen here. any deal that explicitly gives north korea sanctions relief for anything other than verifiable performance of its obligations to dismantle its nuclear and missile arsenal is a bad deal signs by chuck schumer and six other democrats. so what is your stance when you see democrats critical of the president and his administration so far? >> look, i have been vocally critical of the president on manyish issues, on immigration, on the saint. but when the -- on the environment. but when the president is doing what you're actually called for, then i think it looks just partisan to criticize him. and every american should be rooting for the president of the united states to succeed with
north korea in bringing peace. i believe the letter is unfairly restrictive. why would you tell the president that you are going to limit his negotiation ability with the north koreans unless there's complete denuclearization? that's a more how hawkish positn than john bolton. i mean, we need to give the president some latitude and understand this may be a step by step process. elizabeth: would you still be vocal in supporting the fact that any type of treaty should be ratified when it comes to congress? i mean, we saw president obama make the iran deal really something that could have been, and it was, really dismantled with the stroke of the next administration. >> right. and i probably disagree with many of your viewers. i supported the iran deal, but i do think it would have been better if there was a treaty process. we learned this when woodrow wilson didn't get the league of nations ratified and didn't pay enough attention to the senate. i think things should come through congress. hamilton said that the
difference between us and george iii was people in the senate should have some ability to make treaties. elizabeth: but would he get the same support? is so there are democrats such as yourself who are supporting the president. >> right. elizabeth: but would they put their money where their mouth is, and would they ratify that? >> i think the president has to come back and say we engaged in negotiation, and here's what i can tell the american people. now north korea's not going to strike our homeland, they're not going to have intercontinental ballistic missiles, they're not going to have tests. and i don't understand how anyone in congress where our obligation is to keep the united states safe wouldn't really be supportive of that kind of movement. so i wish the republicans had supported president obama on iran. we can relitigate that, but i don't think it's a principled position for someone who supported the iran deal now to criticize engagement with north korea. elizabeth: to go full circle before i let you go, i want to get a couple more details out of
that meeting you had with the president. was he listening to you, and what did you and other democrats -- and republicans, for that matter -- what advice did you have for him going forward, and was it received? >> well, the principal part of the meeting was term limits, and he agreed with that effort, and i was part of that group, and we both -- all of the group and him believe that there should be term limits for members of congress. but at the end, i had a couple minutes and i said, you know, mr. president, i wanted you to know that there are a lot of democrats who want you to succeed in north korea. and he said, what he says publicly, it's the greatest chance in a generation to get peace, and he's working on that. i believe personally the president on north korea has far better instincts than john bolton and some of the neo-key advisers -- neo-conservative advisers. i think we should encourage him to follow those instincts to get a deal. it's going to be a long process. i don't think we should expect denuclearization, but if there's a peace treaty after 1953, if
they stop nuclear testing, if they say they're not going to have intercontinental ballistic missiles, that'll be a step forward. one final point. as americans, we should care first and foremost to make sure korea. not attacked by north and that -- if the president can assure us that they're not going to have intercontinental ballistic missiles, that's a huge win. elizabeth: well, you've been open to dialogue so, congressman, thank you so much. it's inspiring. others should take your lead. >> thank you for having me on. leland: all right. aaron elmore joins us on the other side of the aisle from the congressman. nice to see you. it's not unusual to ask the 435 members of the house of representatives a question and get about 6 or 700 different answers to the same question. congressman kahanna is laughing at that. but this north korean issue is, oddly, not dividing along party lines. what do you make of that, what
should the president make of that? >> well, this is truly a nonpartisan issue here. and as anyone sees it that way, especially if they're an elected official, their constituents are certainly not going to be happy. we are talking about kim jong un here. it's a very volatile nation. their ability to acquire nuclear weapons as we know and our research has suggested has really escalated. so what the president is doing here by going to singapore benefits democrats and republicans alike. leland: well, it benefits them especially if you get a deal. the american public seems to agree with you. should president trump meet with north korean leader kim jong un, 66% say, yes. 24% say, no. this, perhaps, is the more pertinent question. will north korea ever give up its nukes? the american people right now 28% say yes back in march 2018, only 16% say yes. if the president comes back without a deal, was this a fool's errand?
>> absolutely not. first of all, the fact that both men -- president trump and kim jong un -- are willing to go to singapore and come to the table shows that both are very, very serious about getting a deal. leland: hold on, wait, hold on, hold on. the fact that kim jong un is willing to leave his hermit kingdom and come to a fancy hotel in singapore and sit down for a bunch of free meals which we know the north koreans don't often get and be on the same stage with the leader of the free world and being held up as a nuclear power and suddenly no longer ridiculed, but president trump saying that i think they're acting very well, that shows he's willing to be serious, or that shows that he's willing to play us? or both? >> well, that question was action-packed right there. first of all, he's not the average north korean, he's the leader of north korea, so his ability to stay in a fancy hotel and have a nice meal, i don't believe, are quite that limited. leland: they are, but go ahead. erin, they are limited, it's why
they ask the u.s. government to pay for their meals, it's why as you saw the reporting earlier that they barely could figure out how to pay for their visit to singapore. but go ahead. >> be that as it may, president trump -- and we all know that kim jong un was educated in switzerland. he has experienced capitalism. he wants to be a hero. perhaps this is his chance to change the world. and by the way, we already know that on, you know, it was april 27th kim jong un met with president moon, and they sat together. this is the first time ever -- leland: but, erin, erin, you're -- >> i'm being interrupted left and right here. [laughter] leland: erin, you're making the case here though that kim jong un is getting exactly what he wants and hasn't given up anything. i'm still looking for something from you that proves that he's serious about giving up his weapons. >> i don't even think that president trump knows. i am not miss clee woe. i don't have a crystal ball
here. this is going to take several steps. we have to realize they are getting here, they are going to singapore, they are going to meet whether it's one meeting or tree meetings. the president has indicated that his intent is to have total and complete denuclearization. and without that, there will be no resolution, and sanctions will continue. we have virtually cut off, you know, his ability to -- 70% of his income stream coming into north korea has been cut off. so we have already with these sanctions and this ability of cutting off their income stream, we are squeezing and squeezing and squeezing kim jong un. so changes have been made. things are happening. we are progressing. to say that nothing has happened thus far is, you know, really crazy because he and president moon virtually ended the korean war, as you know, that was happening since 1950. so that alone is a huge milestone. so to say that progress hasn't been made is a little negative sounding, if you will. leland: well, i guess it's our job to be, shall we say, contrarian and questioning. i don't know about negative. as for the korean war being
ended, i think you'd have to ask the american soldiers that are staying on the dmz whether they think it's over. but we appreciate youing being here, erin. thank you. >> always a pleasure. elizabeth: american authorities say chinese government hackers targeted a navy contractor and stole a massive amount of sensitive data on undersea warfare from his computer, including secret plans for a supersonic anti-ship missile for use on submarines, officials say. the breach took place in january and february. a spokesperson for the chinese embassy says they know nothing about the breaches. the navy is investigating with help from the fbi. leland: authorities now ordering new back evacuations in guatemala following the volcano eruption that killed 109 people. that death toll could rise. families of the victims now urging authorities to bring in heavy equipment to try and uncover the remains of their loved ones. in this after wet weather and

flicks. the two probes -- the hillary clinton e-mail probe on the one hand and the mueller probe on the other -- really highlight the stark contrast. when the establishment investigates itself, as in the case of the hillary clinton probe, there's no real effort to try to identify wrongdoing or hold anyone accountable. in contrast, in the trump mueller probe, we've seen a basically no-holds-barred, out of control effort on the part of the establishment to pin something on the disrupter. and the ig report that's due out next week hopefully will shed some light on this and allow us to see what's really been going on. elizabeth: all right. al, i want to get your larger reaction. we just heard this week there was an indictment of an aide up on capitol hill in regards to leaking and speaking with a reporter, so are there going to be consequences if we do find any wrongdoing? >> well, i certainly hope so. and i have to say i think dan's
talk is a little dangerous. the fbi is the fbi, the justice department is the justice department, and its targets are its targets without regard to whether they are democrats, republicans, institutional figures or disrupters. and if people commit crimes, they should be brought to justice. and we just need to go where the facts take it, whether it's paul manafort breaking a law, whether it's trump, did he collude or not. let's get where the facts take us and not talk about bias in these institutions. elizabeth: okay. that being said, intelligence officials will also be on capitol hill. obviously, this is a separate topic. they'll be facing questioning from congressional leaders. i'm curious about what this does in the larger picture, and i want to pose this to dan, instilling faith in the fbi, in the doj. it's really become more political than anything. >> well, i think the doj and the fbi are hiding the ball from the congressional investigators. there was obviously wrongdoing
on both their parts, and they've been hiding behind some fig leaf that they think some of the information is national security and so should be protected. but inevitably, when information does come out, we find out that it's just a case of political operatives abusing the power of these independent agencies for political purposes. look, we mow the obama administration meddled in 20 something elections around the world, and i think we're discovering the agencies under obama meddled in the 2016 election by giving hillary clinton a pass and by trying to damage donald trump: i think that's the serious issue that the american people want to get to the bottom of. they don't want these institutions corrupted like a banana republic. elizabeth: all right, al, i'll let you respond. >> that's just such a distraction from the truth. paul ryan, the intelligence agencies all believe that the russians meddled in our elections. no one believes, except for dan and a few other trump supporters, that the obama administration meddled by preferencing hillary clinton.
the fbi, for many years, has been a venerable institution in this country, and it's sad that republicans now want to bring them down. elizabeth: i'm going to give you the last word, dan, then we have to wrap it up. >> i have a lot of respect for the fbi and the doj. i think there's a few bad actors in both agencies, and i don't believe that's true, what al suggests, that, you know, we should throw the baby out with the bath water. these agencies are highly respected. there's been some bad actors, and their actions are now finally coming to light and, frankly, they need to be held accountable. and i hope jeff sessions, when the time comes, take the appropriate steps. elizabeth: we will learn much more on thursday, who it was, who it was involving and what the consequences will be. of gentlemen, thank you so much for joining us, i appreciate it. >> thank you. leland: the troubled son of two hollywood actors now facing criminal allegations. why police have called redmond o'neal with attempted murder. and just ahead of the big north korea summit as the president heads to singapore,

meeting with north korean leader kim jong un, you can see some of the peace protests in seoul, south korea. activists and members of several religious groups in south korea came together in seoul with candles to take part in a vigil and pray for peace and a successful meeting between the two leaders. president trump arrives in singapore a little less than 24 hours from now. live coverage here on the fox fuse channel as it happens -- fox news channel as it happens throughout the next couple of days. the president earlier today said this is a one-time shot for the north korean dictator. of joining us now, former deputy division chief for korea at the cia, 20 years at the cia, did you ever think we were going to be less than 24 hours away from the president of the united states, the president of north korea sitting down? did you guys contemplate this. >> well, we probably did, but it's still coming as a surprise. and even though the run-up to it has been a bumpy road, you know, i think expectations have been lowered. the president is, i think,
lowering -- leland: almost continually, the expectations are going down. >> exactly. he had talked about, you know, he always said he might walk away, but he also seemed to be setting the bar pretty high for expectations that there would be kind of a major breakthrough. but i think once the north koreans kind of basically publicly reiterated what was their longstanding policy on denuclearization, that surprised the white house, and they realized there was a bigger gap -- leland: there does seem to be a huge difference between our versions of denuclearization. at the cia you guys spent so much time trying to develop a psychological profile of the kims, understanding who these people were, what they wanted. the president has his own feelings about sizing up chairman kim. take a listen. >> you know the way they say you know if you're going to like somebody in the first five seconds, you ever hear that one? well, i think that very quickly i'll know whether or not something good is going to
happen. and if i think it won't happen, i'm not going to waste my time. i don't want to waste his time. leland: it would seem it's in chairman kim's great personal interest and his country's interest to make it seem like something's going to happen and to play this out for a long time. >> exactly. and what we saw kim jong un doing at the inter-korean summit was acting very gregarious, very respectful to the south korean president. they seemed to hit it off, and so the south korean president was very eager to reduce tensions on the peninsula not only between the two koreas, but also setting the stage for a u.s./north korea successful summit. leland: how does the u.s. avoid getting played here? because the north koreans have been geniuses at doing it in the past. >> right. i think really two basic things are we have to have, if we end up with an agreement, very detailed text very similar to what we had with the soviet union in the warsaw pact very clearly delineating everyone's responsibility. and the second aspect is robust
verification -- leland: we had both of those with the north koreans, and they still broke it. >> well, actually, all of the agreements with the north koreans in the past have been very short, very vague and very insufficient verification. but with the arms control treaties, we didn't trust the soviets, but we had good verification and very detailed treaties. leland: on a more granular level though, we know president trump likes to get deals done. he likes that photo op, those moments. there's been a lot of criticism over the deal with zte, the chinese telecom company, that he was too eager to make something happen and garner goodwill with the chinese. more specifically, what do you watch for in that meeting when we're going to get tape of those two leaders together? when they're actually in that room, what are you going to be watching for? >> well, we're going to be looking for what kind of agreement comes out, whether it's extensive or whether it's more of a short joint statement, a meeting of the minds, we were successful enough to allow for
subsequent -- leland: so the president says i'm going to be able to figure out a lot in five seconds, you not so much. >> as cia analysts, we take a lot longer than five seconds to make a conclusion. leland: we appreciate your incites and your service over those 20 years, and you're going to be busier over the next couple of days -- >> i think so. leland: good to see you. elizabeth: a shot at the elusive triple crown. bryan llenas is live at the belmont stakes where people are already placing their bets. >> reporter: hi, elizabeth. the crowd is growing, the hats are out, the excitement is building here at the 150 running of the belmont stakes. will justify win the triple crown? we'll have more next. ♪ ♪

♪ ♪ elizabeth: well, the stakes are high today in belmont, new york, where justify -- the racing horse, as you know, who has already won the kentucky derby and the preakness -- could take home the triple crown. bryan llenas has the full story. what an assignment, not bad. [laughter] >> reporter: it is a beautiful day as well, elizabeth. look, just 12 horses in the last 99 years have won the elusive triple crown, and justify is the
odds-on favorite to win here today at the 150th running of the belmont stakes. justify is a 3-year-old colt. he aced here in new york on on -- arrived here in new york on wednesday. the big race starts about 6:37, around that time. the belmont runs a mile and a half. it is known as the longest and most grueling of the three big races needed to win the crown. justify won the kentucky derby by two and a half lengths and won the preakness by just a half a length. both of those tracks were sloppy, it was wet. that's not expected here today. and justify is rare in that he is a strong horse, but he started his racing career just a few months ago s and he's a perfect 5-0, undefeated. his trainer is bob baffert, he talked about it yesterday. listen. >> this is what a trainer hopes for to see the day before his horse runs, coming off the track he was just full of himself.
i know he's going to show up and run his race. but, you know, he still has to get around there, he has to break well. >> reporter: and if baffert looks familiar, he's the same trainer for american pharaoh who was the last horse to win the triple crown here in 2015. hall of fame jockey mike will be riding justify. he won the belmont stakes back in 2010, and the winner of the triple crown will be awarded a brand new trophy. for the first time, they've redesigned the trophy, and all hope is that justify will be the first person -- the first horse to win that trophy. here again, i spoke to sonny taylor who's been working here for 50-plus years. he was the official timer when secretariat won the triple crown. he says justify's going to win, so i have placed my bet on him as well. elizabeth: i was just going to ask you if you placed a bet. leland: are i did notice there
was some enthusiasm every time he said justify's going to win. [laughter] you've got the mint jewish lip at the derby, blackize susans at the prescribing -- black eye susans at the preakness. i'm concerned with other matters. elizabeth: no, i'm also concerned with this. [laughter] >> reporter: you know, i actually do not know. i really do not know. you know why? it's early here -- leland: see -- >> reporter: i'll find out. leland: this was a trick question. i do know the answer. it was just to see if you've been on your game and not attending the bar. it's called the belmont breeze which is bourbon with orange and cranberry juice. so have one and report back to us. that's your new assign isment. [laughter] >> reporter: well, you see, i've got money on the line here on the horses, not the drinks. i was too busy studying that and not the drink. leland: good man. >> reporter: i appreciate that. i'll go try it out at 8:00
