from her wheelchair to perform cpr. a remarkable woman. the good news, the boy will be okay. thanks for joining us. i'll be on "the five" in a few hours and we'll have bret baier as well. i'm dana. here's shep. >> shepard: it's noon on the west coast. 3:00 p.m. on the east coast. 3:00 a.m. tuesday in singapore where just hours from now, president trump and the north korean dictator are set to meet one-on-one. now we're learning what the white house says president trump is willing to offer in exchange for peace. the summit in singapore coming after president trump hit u.s. allies on trade calling one leader dishonest and weak. what comes up next? and a decades old mys solved. an air force officer who is banished with top secret clearance 35 years ago found. what we're learning about where he's been hiding and why. let's get to it.
and first from the fox news deck this monday afternoon. we're just hours away from the historic face-to-face meeting between president trump and the north korean dictator kim jong-un. secretary of state mike pompeo says the u.s. willing to take steps to show north korea that giving up its nuclear weapons is not something that ends badly for them. secretary pompeo didn't say whether that includes withdrawing troops in south korea but he said the main goal has not changed. >> the ultimate objective that we seek from the diplomacyas not changed. the complete and verifiable denuclearization of the north korean peninsula is the only outcome the united states will accept. >> shepard: so what does denuclearization of the korean peninsula mean? some analysts say the north
koreans may want the u.s. to pull its troops out of south korea and end the so-called nuclear umbrella to defend south korea and japan. the two leaders set to host this get together at the capella hotel in singapore. president trump would be the first u.s. president to meet with the north korean leadfer it happens. kim was out and and walking around singapore a little while ago. he's kept north korea mos isolated from t rest of the world letting some of these people starve and having his own relatives killed for crossing him. according to the united nations, north korea is one of the most brutal regimes in modern history, this meeting comes after a tense g-7 summit at best where president trump clashed with world leaders over tariffs on steel and aluminum impor from canada, the european union and other united states allies while propping up our enemies.
more on that. first to john roberts who is traveling with the president and live in the city state of singapore tonight. hello, john. >> shep, good morning. the white house and the president playing the expectations game ahead of the first ever summit between a u.s. president and a north korean leader underpromise and overdeliver with president trump hinting there may be a surprise in store after the two leaders meet. the president spent the day preparing for the summit meeting first with the prime minister of ngapore and later on huddling with his nional security team for the afternoon to make sure that he's got all of the talking points ready, all of the negotiating points ready. the president is prepared to offer a lot to kim jong-un, economic security guarantees, security guarantees as well as potentially an end to the korean war after all of these years and
a normalization of north and south korea only if they denuclearization. the pdent changing the paradigm here. leader-to-leader. we've pointed out that has never happened before. the first of the summit meetings will be between the president and kim jong-un with only their interpreters present. the others will come in for an expanded bilateral meeting. that will include the secretary of state, the national security adviser and the chief of staff on the american side. the other difference here is up until now with north korea, the us has been pursuing incrementalism. economic incentives for small moves by north korea. the president is throwing that out the window. he wants all or nothing. the secretary of state saying all or nothing will come with some big perks from the united states. listen here. >> president trump recognizes
chairman kim's secure. he is prepared to say that a denuclearization is also a secure north korea. the president has expressed his openness to expanding access to foreign investment and other economic opportunities for north korea if they take the right steps. >> now, kim jong-un went to school in switzerland. he's not roamed this far from home since becoming the lead of north korea. yesterday he spent part of the evening walking around, seeing some sights here including what is the landmark of singapore, the marine bay sands hotel. it's three high rise towers with what looks like a cargo ship perched upon the top of it. it's the hotspot here in singapore and the north korean leader getting a look at that as potentially what might be possible if he plays ball with the united states. we should point out that president trump will be leaving
singapore earlier than anticipated. he was going to leave midday wednesday and leaving the morning open for more talks with kim jong-un. but according to the white house officials, talks are moving more quickly so the president will be leaving tomorrow evening, or this evening, i guess, about 6:00. that will be after he holds a press conference at the capella resort. we'll hear directly from the president what was accomplished. >> shepard: they're telling us there's high level phone calls from the president as well. >> yeah, the president has been consulting with the president of south korea, moon jae-in and the president of japan,nzo abe. abe was at the white house last thursday for final talks before the summit. the president consulted them over the telephone yesterday. moon jae-in hely invested in achieving a peace and economic relations between south korea and north korea. he would eventually like to see the reunification of the north
korean peninsula. the sticking point of capitollism or the north korean ideas. and shinzo abe wants to make sure the missiles are gone and the issue of japanese citizens abducted by north korea. history is about to unfold this morning singapore, shep. >> shepard: thank you, john. michael o'hanlon from the brookings institute. hi, michael. >> hi, shepard, nice to be with you. >> my understanding is the north koreans want the war to be ended, safety guarantees and a peace treaty. so the secretary of state said we're good.
>> there's two phrases that mike pompeo said that i thought were note worthy. on fox business channel, i heard him say the ultimate objective is the complete denuclearization of north korea. that implies there could be steps along the way. he talked more recently on your clip about north korea giving up all of its weapons of mass destruction, which would include not only nukes but biological and chemical weapons. north korea has a lot of them, too. i'm as clueless as i've been about what kind of realistic problems have. the best thing is the whole break down that happened a couple weeks ago, that was a resetting of expectations and i think the united states now understands the north koreans are not going to give up their nuclear program immediately.
>> shepard: a lot of people are worried about the one-on-one meeting. barry mccalferty says it's unacceptable. and secretary mattis and pompeo should have posed it in written. paul hanley from the bush administration says it's unacceptable danger to national security. what is your thought on this? a sit down to record what each side is saying. >> every time barry mccaffrey is talking. i think for the broad context when we talk about what kind of a deal could be possible, president trump makes those decisions for his administration, not the country. congress has power to oppose and to do things like insist that a certain number of u.s. troops stay in korea, even if president trump prepared to negotiate them
away. i'm not sure that we can insist that trump can bring about his own advisers. that's part of the executive branch. i think it's ultimately president trump's choice. >> shepard: it was quite something this morning our time, night their time, to watch conditional from this hermit kingdom and be wandering out like this and out-trumping trump in a pr way. i feel like we're doing to have a new apprentice. it's quart a transformation. >> i like the setup to that. he can't to this. he's not welcome around much of the world and basically a criminal for the kinds of human rights violation that's your segment noted.
he grew up in switzerland. he dant to be couped up in north korea the next 50 years. that gives us some reason to hope that he will want to come out of his shell. i'm not concerned about north korea's nukes. i think the guy does want to have his cake and eat it, too. he's trying to find a way to pull that off. and the nuclear weapons are probably going to be an ongoing basis for negotiation, not a one-time deal. >> shepard: i haven't heard anybody mention the goulags or all the dead people. >> yeah. this guy is not a good guy. he may have an aspiration for how to do that sometime, but he knows that when dictators start
to open up, sometimes the populations rise up and take matters into their ownhands. we remember romania in 1989. the remaining people decide if this guy has to go and they executed him. that's my best guess about that plus he's not a nice guy. these are the reasons he hasn't done it yet. i hope over time he will find a way to reform the way that china and vietnam have gradually reformed over time from within a communist system. right now, he's presiding over the worst police stay on earth. >> shepard: thanks, michael. the white house says president trump will head home after this summit. it's only the beginning of the diplomacy overseas. we'll look at what is next. why one leader says any plan for real peace could take many years.
later as the president deals with north korea, a top aide warns there's a special lays in hell nor one of our closest allies. waving now. there they are. the buddy buddy is over. since my stroke, he hasn't left my side. with the right steps, 80% of recurrent ischemic strokes could be prevented. a bayer aspirin regimen is one step to help prevent another stroke. so, i'm doing all i can to stay in his life. be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen.
i had a very minor fender bender tonight! in an unreasonably narrow fast food drive thru lane. but what a powerful life lesson. and don't worry i have everything handled. i already spoke to our allstate agent, and i know that we have accident forgiveness. which is so smart on your guy's part. like fact that they'll just... forgive you... four weeks without the car. okay, yup. good night. with accident forgiveness your rates won't go up just because of an accident. switching to allstate is worth it. >> shepard: by this time tomorrow, the summit will be over. the president has said it could take one meeting to get the
north korean dictator to give up his nukes. south korea's president says the whole process could take years. a harvard study sug the process could take like 15 years. where does this go after the summit? rich edson with the news in singapore. rich, meetings already scheduled after the summit. >> that's right. secretary of state mike pompeo after he joins this mng in the summit will travel on to seoul, south korea and beijing. they will brief the leaders on what the president and kim jong-un could accomplish or fail to do. the president of south korea, moon jae-in, says the opt hostility is so large it's going to take more than one meeting between the president and kim jong-un to solve this. he says "even after the two leaders have initiated dialogue in a big way, we may need a long process thad tae year, two years or longer to
completely resolve the issues concerned." the secretary of state acknowledged that a successful summit could be the first conversation these leaders have. >> we're hopeful this will have set the conditions for future productitalks. no potential agreement will fail the adequately address the north korean threat. >> the secretary says they hope to create aramework. how far they get? he says we'll see how far we can go. >> shepard: or allies angry at the moment watching this clearly obviously. >> they are. the adversaries are, the allies are, especially those in japan and south korea. the united states has a substantial presence in both countries. the u.s. and south korea hold joint military exercises. the type of exercises that north korea sees as a threat. the secretary of state is saying that the united states willing to provide security
assurances to north korea, although he refuses to say what that means. whether that would involve a reduction in troop presence from the united states, whether it would change or alter the type of military exercises the u.s. has with south korea. as for u.s. troop levels, the secretary of defense james mattis, said the u.s. level there in south korea the not part of the discussions, not on the table for this summit here in singapore, shep. >> shepard: what is the noise? sounds like you're next to a waterfall or something. >> that's it. a waterfall in a plaza in this hotel where every journalist on the planet is here today. >> shepard: thanks. we hear it. good to see you. the u.s. and canada are in a fight obviously. the president accusing the country's prime minister of making false statements and the president's trade advisers saying there's a special place in hell for the leader of can a
one of our best friends. maybe we need a northern . we'll look at what prime minister trudeau to trigger the response. we'll see what is happening with the united states and can the to trigger trade. people would stare. psoriasis does that. it was tough getting out there on stage. i wanted to be clear. i wanted it to last. so i kept on fighting. i found something that worked. and keeps on working. now? they see me. see me. see if cosentyx could make a difference for you- cosentyx is proven to help people with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis... ...find clear skin that can last. don't use if you're allergic to cosentyx. before starting cosentyx, you should be checked for tuberculosis. an increased risk of infections and d ability to fight them may occur. tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms.
or if you have received a vaccine or plan to. if you have inflammatory bowel disease, tell your doctor if symptoms develop or worsen. serious allergic reactions may occur. never give up. see me. see me. clear skin can last. don't hold back... ...ask your dermatologist if cosentyx can help you find clear skin that lasts.
which the president was signing, he thought. but he admitted there were still disagreements between president trump and the other leaders were obvious. prime minister trudeau slammed the tariffs and promised to retaliate. >> i told the president that the canadians didn't take it likely. the u.s. has moved forward with tariffs on our steel and aluminum industry. they didn't take it lightly it's based on a national security reason for canadians who's parents or community members, from the first world war onward, that it's kind of insulting. and i highlighted that it was not helping with the
renegotiation of nafta. applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that the americans have unjustly applied. it's not something that we relish doing but something that we will do because canadians polite, we're reasonable but we won't be pushed around. >> shepard: that's what the president was so upset about. that part. after that, president trump took to twitter saying he would not support the g-7 agreement which he agreed to support. he also slammed the canadian prime minister as meek and mild and the white house trade adviser launched into another attack. >> there's a special place in
hell for people that engage with donald trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door. that's what bad faith justin trudeau did with that stunt prs conference. >> shepard: a stunt press conference. the european union president later tweeted, there's a special place in heaven for justin trudeau. president trudeau accused president trump of making false statements. he mentioned canada's 270% tariffs on dairy products. dairy accounts for 2% of the total value of product we expected to canada last year; whatever that was. no idea. and the u.s. does not have a trade deficit with canada at all. we have a trade surplus with canada as other top trading partners. we have an 8.4 billion surplus. when you includes goods and
services which is how you measure trade. we have a trade surplus with canada. david hawkings is here, senior editor for roll call. the things the president said after this discussion, he had said before. it's not as if therime minister has not come forward and say it's insulting. nothing new here. do we have any clarity from the president on what it was that turned him up? >> we don't have any clarity from the president. the one other person that went out on the so-called sunday shows to stick up for the president was the top economic advisinger, larry kudlow, that was clear in saying the angry, infuriated response from the president was kind of what we used to call in texas a set-up
deal. it's all about the president wanting to make a point as he was headed to singapore that he was a man of emphasis and clarity and wouldn't be pushed arout and he wanted to show up in singapore showing kim jong-un that he was willing to kick one of our longest and best allies in the teeth if that's what the it would take to get the world's attention. >> shepard: he's kicking allies in the teeth the whole time to use your parlance. go back to the call with the australian leader. do back to what happened with theresa may and angela merkel. it's not a new things. but to suggest that justin trudeau said something to the president that he might have taken offense too. look at what he said on "meet the press" a few weeks ago. >> that we're a national security threat is unacceptable.
>> shepard: he said they've fought alongside our troops in iraq and afghanistan. he said we're one of the biggest trade partners we have. we're picking a fight with you, seriously? >> and they didn't bur down the white house. >> that made that up. the canadians can not be corralled. >> so it does seem as though, you know, the analogy of the school yard boes kif come to mind, this a school yard bully makes some sense before he faces off against an adversary. he wants to show his metal in the playground by beating up on somebody he does know and generally he gets along with and will be an easy march. and the more the president is surprised that mr. trudeau is not an easy mark, that seems to have riled the president up even more. this is -- we've been watching
this a long time with the president. this seems to be the latest example of who would have thunk it. it's not normal. we never see these things before but here we go again. high stress time. i think it's unclear whether his objective is to get leverage on kim jong-un. i'm not sure it's going to work. now i have the leverage who can hold it over trump if he doesn't want two failed summits in a row. >> shepard: foreign policy greats, people who have been watching -- think the western alliance is important and this is dangerous to it. that's true. the domestic alliance that the president has also is in danger. we should know that trade, the republican party is incredibly loyal to the matters of policy and personality and politics.
trade, like nothing else, is what galvanizes the republican party. it's going toe interesting to see after the north korean summit is over, how loud and frustrated the republicans in congress are with the president on this matter. >> shepard: crickets so far. crickets are noisy compared to them. david hawkings from roll call. great to see you. thank you. >> thank you. >> shepard: president trump is calling for russia to rejoin the g-7. his administration is punishing russians for trying to hacking commuters and our energy grid. steve mnuchin rolling out new sanctions against five firms and three executives accused of helping the russian military carry out cyber attacks. these sanctions freeze any
jurisdiction theres the united states and bar americans from doing with them. mnuchin said the companies were helping moscow track underwater cables that carry most of the world's communications data. president trump has been studying kim jong-un's personality traits ahead of their historic summit. we'll get into what they know about the dictator and speak to somebody that knows about the horrors of living under his brutal regime. that's coming up. your body was made for better things than rheumatoid arthritis. before you and your rheumatologist move to another treatment, ask if xeljanz xr is right for you. xeljanz xr is a once-daily pill for adults with moderate to severe ra for whom methotrexate did not work well enough. it can reduce pain, swelling and further joint damage, even without methotrexate. xeljanz xr can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections, lymphoma and other cancers have happened.

intelligence officials have interviewed former teachers and students at the swiss boarding school where they believe kim went a few years posing as a diplomat's son. they said he was a swaggering kid, prone to fits of anger. "the new york times" said that kim wasn't the dimmest student but wasn't the clevererest. trace gallagher has more. >> much of what we know about kim jong-un has to be taken with a grain of salt. back in the 90s, he was sent to school in switzerland. the maternal aunt that cared for kim later defected to the u.s. and told "the washington post" that kim went to a disney park in paris, skied in the swiss alps and lived a childhood of luxury and leisure, especially during summers at the family's
private resort. the aunt confirmed the afternoon, that kim jong-un is a huge american basketball fan, espeally the chicago bulls. dennis rodman's former team, but michael jordan's kim's favorite player. as the chef was not strict against school and he was never forced to study and he spent hours on his play station. the sony play station, which if you look back is now rich with irony. shep? >> shepard: sure is. how did the rise to power take place? >> you know, kim jong-un was always third in line to take power behind his older broth and his older half brother. the brothers embraced the western lifestyle and were therefore deemed not to be suitable leaders. kim jong-un had his older half brother assassinated. unlike his father, kim jung il that was groomed 20 years to take payer, kim jong-un had one year. in 2011, he became the world's
youngest tenure of state. he purged dozens of senior officials including his uncle that was politically isolated and executed. experts say kim jong-un tried to pattern his leadership after his grandfather, kim il-song. kim jong-un reportedly cuts his hair in the same style as his grandfather. historians point out the two men both starved and depressed their people with the goal of building military might in lieu of public welfare. shep? >> shepard: thanks, trace. our next guest knows quite well the horrors in north korea. greg is executive director of the committee for human rights in north korea. in that role, he's worked with people that defect from north korea and arrange meetings between some defectors and president trump. good to see you. thank you. >> the pleasure is mine. >> for people that are hearing the remolding of the history and
persona of this dictator, tell us what you know about what he's done to people. >> we have to remember that according to a un commit of inquiry, this is a regime that is committing crimes against humanity. this is a regime that continues to run a goulog system where 120,000 n, women and children are imprisoned pursuant to a system of guilt by association where up to three generations of the same family are punished for the perceived offenses of one offender. prisoners at these north korea goulogs are subjected to relentless malnutrition, torture, forced labor, public executions, secret executions: for this, the death rates at these camps are high. >> for those reasons and many others, it's not to say you're
against these talks. it would be great. sunshine brings light on a situation. sunshine is the best disinfectant. your report has been made that you have to talk about human rights in any context. >> no doubt. we do not trust the dprk regime for very good reasons. they have breached each and every national agreement they have had. they don't trust us for that reason. it will be extraordinarily difficult to add new issues to the agenda later on. president trump is talking about process, possibly multiple summit meetings. again, as you said, i am in favor of diplomacy. i think diplomacy should never stop. moreover, it's a tool that has never been tested before. let's see how it goes. it must be informed diplomacy based on a full understanding of the true nature of this regime. kim jong-un wants security
guarantees. how can the united states, a liberaldemocracy, guarantee the security of a rege that is committing crimes against humanity. >> shepard: it's a good questichs why you wonder if they can't bring up human rights in some way, similar arguments were made back in the days when china was shut down and the same with the arguments that our friends down south make about cuba. human rights are a real issue. >> indeed, human rights are a real issue. the president is, i believe, fully aware of the human rights situation. he hosted three days later group of eight. north security escapees. vice president pence meet on the sidelines of the winter olympics and the president this past friday say that he would raise
human rights at the summit meeting. moreover, he promised the japanese prime minister, prime minister abe, to raise the issue of japanese persons abducted by north korea. >> shepard: we'll watch and reporthat we can. greg, thank you. >> pleasure is mine. >> shepard: the summit is dominating the news coverage here in the united states. meantime, an air force officer whathed in the c war has turned up with a new name after 35 years. now the military is revealing how it tracked this man down and what he's telling investigators after all of this time. where did you go? what will the militar do about it? we're live at the pentagon next. . always have been. when i found out i had age-related macular degeneration, amd, i wanted to fight back.

that's the word from air force officials. the pilot ejected near the island of okinawa. an f-15 crashed during a routine training mission and a rescue team recovered the pilot. the air force has had six noncombat crashes this year compared to seven last year. an air force captain went missing more than three decades ago turned up last week. military officials say william howard hughes had been living in california under a different name. they call him a fugitive and say he desserted the air fort. hughes' family says they don't think he disappeared on his own. jennifer griffin live at the pentagon. >> shep, captain howard had a top secret clearance and was supposed to travel to the u.s.
hughes was showed withdrawing 19 separate banks in albuquerque, new mexico before he disappeared. investigators found to-do lists. his parents and sister have been lift wondering what happened to him for 35 years. last week the air force office of special investigations found hughes living under an alias. he fell under suspect when he went to renews his passport. he was depressed about being in the air force so he left. he has been living in california ever since. last week 303 air force special agents were dispatched to his home to make the arrest. hughes has been on the air force most wanted since 1983. >> air force officials say he
may have been working as a spy. is that right? >> that's what the air force suspected for many years because he had security clearances and they gave him access to some of the most top secret missile programs. hughes had been an expert on rocket self-destruct procedures. air force and officials say there was no evidence he was spying for the soviets. they never found any information that could be linked the him. hughes faces charges of desertion at travis air force base and in the coming days he faces up to five years of confinement and a dishonorable discharge. >> shepard: have you had a funeral yet? net neutrality is dead. the way you serve the web could be changing. rules that were meant to give everybody equal access on the internet are over. but not everyone says that is a bad idea.
>> shepard: after years of delays, a new sky scrapper has opened at the site of ground zero in manhattan. there was a ribbon cutting for the world trade center. it's the fifth tallest building in new york city. the developer had battled the government over the building's plan height and families of 9-11 victims fought to preserve the sight as a permanent memorial. it's about 70 stories. 80 stories. i'm corrected. rises downtown above the memorial there for the victims of 9-11. a beautiful site there.
