that was the bone of contention, people say he gave away too much. sen. tom cotton is on the committee of armed services and had this to say last night. >> we just had the biggest single exercise each year, won't happen for another time -- 9 or 10 months. we have a pretty good read on whether kim jong un will keep his commitment. secretary mattis supports the decision. regular every day trainin exercises. rob: he is a veteran on the armed services committee, he is not worried about this. >> there are two exercises we conduct each year on the korean peninsula. in march, key resolve and foul legal, a lot of troops on the ground but at the end of north
korea's summer training cycle, freedom guardian, a combined us south korea headquarters exercise which is critical. we need to have our generals, their generals, our platoon leaders understag each other and knowing what to do in war. the next big exercises are not until march,t e end of the summer. jillian: still to be determined if kim jong un follows through with his end of the bargain. can we stop these exercises and just to play devil's advocate say he doesn't follow through where does that leave us? >> we would resume them agn. kim jong un does it hurt us to have appear go without them? >> it does because it erodes readiness and if these negotiations take a long time, they are moving in the right direction to take a long time that means our readiness gets to the point we become a hollow otr thing that is important is nor korea if it didn't have nukes would still
have chemical and biological agents and an estimated 14,300 artillery north of the demilitarized zone which separates the two correias and that put south korea at risk and the north koreans didn't s they would stop the winter training cycle and summer training cycle, they are not taking forces deployed on the dmz so until the north koreans that we should continue our exercises. >> from a pragmatic point of view about north korea invading south korea if we pull away from these exercises? it has been a long time since we had conflict on the korean peninsula. will they move in and invade? >> they practice all the time and keep their forces on the dmz. if you look at the pyongyang line, 70% of the korean people's army is forward deployed south of that linethe dmz close to
south korea. i don't know what their intention is. i suspect they wouldn't invade but they have the capability to invade. every march is the perfect time for north korea to do so, when the land in south korea is frozen, great for north korean tanks and mean south korean farmers haven't pled their fields yet which makes it difficult for north korea. i don't think they would but this is not up to gordon chang. i don't decide when they invade. jillian: a statement on the areas today when it came out the two leaders signed. it talks about commitment to complete denuclearization but doesn't specify verifiable. how do we go about verifying? >> this will be put a formal agreement that will be negotiated between the two sides. what we need is not only
commitments to give up nukes and the rest of it. what we need is the strictest inspections regime on earth. donald trump did the right thing, pulled out of the joint conference of plan of action, the iran nuclear deal and part of it was the inspections regime in that deal wasn't very good. the uranium's were saying you can't look at our military bases. what we need to do is anytime -- we not only can go to where they declare a nuclear facility but can go anywhere in north korea. rob: critics say he is jumping in without verification, he wouldn't have signed into some stupid deal here. >> this is a broad framework that will be filled in. rob: a fox news alert, cold-blooded killers on the reet where hundreds of jihadists were set free after fighting side-by-side with isis. jillian: he wants flirted with the senate run himself and kid rock is on the senate stage, he is helping rock the boat.

jillian: we have a fox news alert, donald trump expected in washington any minute. this is a look at joint base andrews where air force one will touchdown after the historic summit in singapore. the commander-in-chief has been away since late last week when he travel to canada from the g7 summit, the possibility of bad weather in the area, he is expected to travel by motorcade instead of marine one when he departs for the white house. we will keep you posted. democrats going nuclear over the singapore summit accusing the president of conceding too much
to kim jong un but mulling hemingreminding the critics that months ago they were blaming the president for bringing us to the brink of nuclear war. >> a year ago we were told we were on the brink of nuclear war because of the approach donald trump had taken, he would never walk away from a summit, that we couldn't hit a june 12th meeting. time and time again the foreign policy experts have been wrong about what would hn with donald trump's very different approach from the bipartisan consensus we have seen leading up to this. we have not like previous meetings we had had to give cash money to get them to the table. we didn't have to do that this time. it is a very promising step. we have a long way to go to see is that this accomplishes the piece we hope for. rob: breaking news, air force one, with the president on board, landing at joint base andrews outside washington dc. the president should be in a fairly good mood coming back from a historic sit down with
one of the most feared leaders in the world, kim jong un. what a couple days it has been. jillian: a long journey packed into a couple days for donald trump. he has been away from the white house since late last week when he travel to canada, landed in singapore sunday ahead of tuesday's meeting. donald trump expected to get off the plane and head to the white house, he is expected to travel by motorcade because of the weather conditions in the area. we will keep you updated. a busy couple days. he should be a happy man this morning. rob: the beginning of something special is what he seems to believe and everyone is hoping for. secretary of state mike otto warmbier jumped on a plane and headed to south korea where he will meet with the leaders of china and south korea. does this give thean update on
what exactly this does for kim jong un, so relevant to r lives and speaking with the leader of japan in south korea and they have a lot on this. it all hinges on everybody getting along. china has their sanctions implemented right now in north korea and there has been word they might be relieving those sanctions which could spell trouble for any kind of a deal. jillian: interesting to see how this plays out. this will not happen over night. over the course of the next few months, years, depending how long it will take north korea to completely denuclearize, has been agreed to on tuesday between the two leaders. rob: kim jong un saying he's willing to leave the past behind and the world will see a major change. there have been empty promises
from north korea in the past. the administration got some criticism for not putting anything in this very brief deal that was signed yesterday regarding verification of denucleazation. critics quick to pounce all over that. the president fired back saying that has not been discussed yet but it will be coming. one of our favorite analysts said the president pulled out of the iran nuclear deal, no verification that he could trust in the deal and the conclusion was no way the president would be going into a deal, the didn't have the strictest and most verifiable -- >> reading from this joint statement the two leaders signed, donald trump committed
to provide security guarantees and kim jong un reaffirmed his denuclearization. it does not mean verifiable. that in itself will not make war talks to figure out the details of everything. >> sity to the leader of north korea, this is a country ruled by fear and this is a regime that has been going on for generations and wants to stay in power and egregious human rights violations coming out of the country, the un report from four years ago highlighted how vicious the leaders of north korea rule their people. i read about a man falling asleep in a meeting and he was killed for that. this is not somebody that deserves the respect of the
united states and there was another of the criticisms, the president legitimized this leader by meeting with him but at the end of the day when you are trying to make a deal, get somebody to fork over nuclear weapons you can sit by and watch them obtain weapons to kill millions of people or go in and put your best smile on and make a deal and the president is trying to make a deal, a stronger deal than the iran deal, trying to get a better deal. jillian: and mentioned human rights aspects, the way they run their country, treat their own people and look at the fact the president has mentioned it, it has been mentioned multiple times over the course of the last few months, otto warmbier who died a week after being released to the united states and he was in custody over north korea and he was tortured and the president yestersaid without otto warmbier this would not have happened because i
think a lot of people started to focus on how north korea was treating people, their own and outsiders once the situation rob: the family were quick to send they hope the death of their son, a story we all remember because it was so terrible to see, will lead to some kind of change in this regime and something positive will come from it as we look at air force one and we will wait to see the president come out at any moment. jillian: three hostages in north korea were released and brought to the united states and this within the last few weeks, this was a sign of goodwill from kim jong un leading up to this meeting and we will see what promises he keeps, how long this will take and use the everybody just getting set. rob: the first time a sitting us
president ever met with the leader of north korea. a nation that has been technically at war with south korea sincerely 1950s, this could mean a final end to that and remains from soldiers killed in that fight supporting south korea will be returned to the united states, chuck schumer saying we got nothing for this. three americans back home with the family released a couple months ago and is part of the deal as well as hopefully denuclearization. and as far as politics go, that was not necessarily fair. >> just looking, one minute ago
donald trump landing on twitter so i will read this to you. it is, quote, my political representative didn't want me involved in the mark sanford primary thinking sanford could easily win but with a few hours left i felt katie was a good candidate and stanford was so bad i had to give it a shot, congratulations to katie ton. hat story earlier. he is already at work and in his speech just after the show yesterday, he said i have been away 25 hours, i am awake and still busy. >> in south carolina, a critic in mark sanford who had done a lot of trump bashing and the woman who won the race came from behind and a lot of credit goes to the president, her over the . >> the summit is overcome a lot of meetings will be had.
mike pompeo had a huge role in making this happen and the negotiations leading up to this were smooth and landing in south korea to keep us going. rob: and china as well. a lot of credit to nikki haley, a critical part of getting china to go along with the sanctions. 90% of the trade comes from china so it is difficult to squeeze north korea. nikki haley has been doing a fantastic job at the united nations with the administration and was able to make that happen and a lot of people say the squeeze on north korea, without them being thirsty and needing money, not being able to take care of their people is the reason kim jong un decided to come to the table and tweets going out, nervous people wondering if we were on the
brink of nuclear war with north korea or some kind of conflict at the very least and an analyst on yesterday, north koreans finally had gotten word the white house and the penta and mattis where considering a conflict with north korea and that is the first time the united states after the era of strategic patience under the obama administration was ready to go in and do something about their behavior and that fear led them to this. >> some people argue we gave up too much, that the wargames should not be stopped,ome people argue just having a meeting in itself, seeing that white two flags next to each as propaganda, they have ing it
sanctions on them. we may have given a little bit but in totality, if we confirm and verify denuclearization of north korea that is going to be huge not just for the united states but rld. >> a lot of criticism came from legitimizing kim jong un, smiling at pictures and things like that but how else do you make a deal? you can walk in insulting and scowling with somebody. this is ason that has run a reg same thing, hundreds of thousands of their own people died in prisons for saying things against the regime, killed his own brother, members of the family aren't even off-limits so these are brutal people the president is dealing with and much better to have photos smiling than a nuclear war is the opinion agenda of the white house at this point.
>> someone who criticized the president is robert they niro and in front of a crowd the other day. can't say it on the air but trump, reacted on twitter and he said, quote, robert ey niro, very low iq individual received committee shots to the head by real boxes in movies was i watched him last night and truly believe he may be punchdrunk. he doesn't realize the economy is the best it has ever been with employment, pouring back wake-up punchy.y. another nickname. >> getting verpolitical,taxidri movie. a shame people have to be so disrespectful to the office. doesn't matter what your opinion of the president is, it anges with time and a lot of people
don't like certain pres.s and a lot of pres.s are controversial but you have to respect the office and the fact he is the leader of your country and representing your country and went to canada yesterday and apologized srassed by the president, there he is, about to walk out and here he comes. walking down the steps. you talk a couple minutes ago about the fact you can't -- you have to go into a meeting the right way with a dictator like kim jong un and this is one of donald trump's things he is good at, he is a negotiator, businessman, this is where his background is coming to life. rob: maybe the media will get a rd in, he likes to talk when things are going his way. he might be tired and jump in the motorcade but this was the difference in foreign-policy between the obama administration
and the trump administration. we are not going to get anything out of that. the difference between patience and apologist attitude and being more forceful with the evils of the world and try the same maneuver with iran, squeezing through sanctions, european companies do business with iran after we pull out of the deal, the administration hopes will more value america's business interest that iran's business interest with them and have to appease the sanctionsnd if that works iran will be the same way north korea has been and see if he can get a similar outco out of that and potentially hopefully quit these malicious ways. >> it has been a long couple days, it started with donald
trump leg for the g7 and spent time there, he flew over to singapore and had a busy coup you see the motorcade leaving to take him back to the white house. >> back at the white house, we assume waiting very early in the morning in washington dc, a nice quick drive to get to the white house and storms in the area are keeping him from using marine one, taking a quick 3-minute shopper over the white house. >> let's get you caught up on the fourth bullet point on this joint statement the two leaders signed on tuesday. the united states and the prk commit to new relations in accordance with the desire for peace and prosperity. the united states and the d prk will look for lasting and stable piece regime on the korean
peninsula, and work toward complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula and the united states committing to recovering pow mia remains. >> thousands of soldiers nev ba. the president is back in washington dc, singapore summit officially over. mike pompeo is updating our allies on what has transpired with north korea and we will be right back.
washington post. >> 10,013 gang members including 3000 in the dc metro area alone? >> what the local law enforcement do? private investigator vincent hill, thank you for joining us. how much of a threat is this and why maryland? >> it is a huge threat not only to maryland but across the country and when i was in middle school, we were worried about being recruited by the military. now they are worried about being recruited by the most dangerous gang in this country, drug dealers, robbers, murderers, rapists, this is what ms 13 is in no wonder we are in a situation because the mass media has projected this false narrative that if you are black or brown police don't care about you and give you are an
immigrant this administration doesn't care about you so join forces with us. we have a huge problem on our hands. de wasngton dc, some rough neighborhoods in dc, an influx of kids from central america, this is the other side of the argument, the country seems to be pretty understanding of the situation, they want a deal on daca, they don't have good families or a father but very vulnerable to this recruitment because everybody wants to the long to something. >> you have hillary clinton telling people it is okay to join a game, being a part of a family but that is not a family unit i would want my son or daughter to be part of. we have to have more constructive ways to take out their aggression and feel they are part of something, the boys and girls club, the military,
these institutions in the community for that reason but when you hear ti and again that it is okato join a gang, if you are an immigrant you are not wanted here, that is the issue here. >> what are police doing it was can folks in the community who are scared what can they do? >> leave that to law enforcement, go to battle with gang members, have faith in your law enforcement and law enforcement needs the support of the community and the government. we have an administration that wants to combat ms 13 and we have the backing we need not only for manpower but the equipment to combat ms 13 because a lot of times law enforcement is "outnumbered" outgunned when dealing with
these organizations. rob: immigration is at the forefront in congress and we are looking at a vote any day. what should happen with daca? >> i don't want to talk politics but under the obama administration when talking about illegal gang members you see this influx of immigrants in this country. outside of immigration we need to focus on getting illegal gang members under arrests to see a reduction in crime, schools ming safer like they should be. jillian: conservatives in california, fed up with liberals running their state one step closer to breaking away and forming a new one, a split into 3 separate states, got enough
votes for the midterm ballot. gop strategist and former obama campaign advisor david morey. does this happen? should it happen? >> this has been date since 1859 and rightfully so. when you look at california it does not have adequate representation in the senate, to have 4 to 20,000 votes, if you look at the way the map is drawn, it will break down into 3 large liberal ups, horrible conservative voices. i'm not sure the way it is drawn is fair but it is fair to give it a look. >> do you agree? >> it is fair to give anything a look almost, california is california, a unique way of governing themselves, they have to jump over and has to win a
popular vote in california and has to pass the california legislaturd go through the usourts an pass the u.s. congress which will allow a tripling of senators from california so i don't think this is going to happen. jillian: you heard this would not be good for conservatives. what is your take on that? >> it would help democrats because california is virtually a country and we honor the political leanings of california. just think of the idea of congress which can't agree on anything agreeing on splitting california into three states, good luck on that. jillian: former pres. barack obama still trying to get involved i guess you could say in the 2020 election meeting with 9 potential president ondii them including bernie nders,
joe biden. is this a good sign for democrats leading into 2020? even right now imi >> he was a winner but look at the names, sanders, warren, patrick and biden and those are the candidates they put forward i'm very optimistic about 2020. they can't hold a match to trump in a debate. i have to say pres. obama working on his memoir, people should let him be in peace. imagine being in office for eight years and not accomplishing close to what trump is accomplished in two years, he has got to feel pretty bad and they should leav alone. jillian: he is the one having these meetings. >> i don't agree with kimberly on that. obama did an awful lot coming from the worst recession in the history of recessions. he has to help and they need helpthats lose the transition for him will be
moving to the front leadership position as a candidate, to the back room strategist position and bill clinton did that will. hillary clinton would be wise to listen to his counsel in 2016. a great political strategist. he could have been that for a living and obama has unique talents, incredible political instincts and as kimberly said inedce. pties i lost. one only reacts to trump, that is the democrats, the other only agrees with trump, that is the republicans. there is something in the middle, a vacu t demoats to fill and obama be helpful helping guide them to fill the vacuum. i don't know if those are the candidates going against trump, trump is a favorite for reelection, no question. >> we don't disagree with trump, we have a great economy, got back from north korea, we are
winning and all lies, not just agreeing at this point. >> i don't see many republicans disagreeing. jillian: running out of time, thanks for joining us this morning. rob: going to wrap things up, the president back in washington landing moments ago, air force one returning to joint base andrews after the summit in singapore when the president sat down with kim jong un. jilln:hesint tweeting just landed, long trip, everyone safer than the day i took office, no longer a nuclear threat with north korea, meeting with kim jong un was interesting and positive experience. north korea has great potential for ture.b:ot oements to be worked out in this deal. mike pompeo is in seoul, south korea, briefing allies in south
korea and japan and head to beijing, china, the possibility for bad weather, donald trump traveling by motorcade instead of marine one. jillian: mike pompeo on monday, >> president landing on board now at joint base anews comi back from what has been an historic sitdown with one of the most feared leaders in the world. >> what struck me the most is how much the president appreciated how deficit sphaght a war would be. >> i think the media all caught completely flat-footed with the success of this meeting. >> duty attorney general rod rosenstein threatened to subpoena lawmakers over records in the russia probe. >> i'm here to tell you we are fed up with it. >> the dnc and some members of congress reportedly quietly consulting with actors on messaging. >> democrats and liberal elites are not connected to the american people.
