temper tantrum that spiralled downwards. that's how chuck schumer and nancy pelosi are describing a meeting at the white house with president trump. the white house is calling it a constructive dialogue. but admits there's major disagreement about how to avoid a partial government shut down around christmas. much of that meeting behind closed doors. it started with a 15-minute back and forth that was open to the news media and full of fireworks. congress has less than two weeks to avoid a partial government shut down. the president has tried to tie the funding for the wall at the southern border to legislation that would keep the government running. our capitol hill team tells us how republicans do not have the votes to pass legislation to avoid the shut down with or without the border wall money. leaders pelosi and schumer explain that to the president. >> it doesn't help for me to take a vote in the house where i will win easily with the
republicans. it doesn't help to take that vote because i'm not going to get the votes from the senate. i need ten senators. that's the problem. >> you've had the white house, the senate -- >> the white house is done. the house would give me the vote if i wanted it. i can't -- nancy, i need ten votes from chuck. >> let me say one thing. the fact is you do not have the votes in the house. >> nancy, i do. we need border security. nancy, we need border security. >> border security. that was a big part of today's talks. president trump listed some stats about how he says parts of the border wall was effective. it's not been built. some of it has been reinforced with wires put up, replacement. no new wall. hasn't happened. the house minority leader, nancy pelosi calls the president's information not factual.
democratic leaders also challenged his claim that a wall is necessary for border security. >> we need border security. the wall is a part of it. you can't have good border security without the wall. no. >> that's a political comment. border security is a way to effectively honor a responsibility -- >> the experts say you can do it without a wall, which is wasteful and solves the problem. >> it totally solves the problem. >> shepard: the democrats and the need didn't agree on the border wall and did not agree for the need for a shut down or who would be to blame. >> the one thing i think we can agree on, we shouldn't shut down the government over a dispute. you want to shut it down. you keep talking about it. >> the last time you shut it down and you -- >> no, no. >> i don't want to do what you did -- >> 20 times you said i will shut town the government if i don't get my wall. >> you want to know something? >> you said it. >> i'll take it. you know what i'll say?
yes, if we don't get what we want, one way or the other, whether it's through you, through a military, through anything you want to call, i will shut down the government. and i'm proud and i'll tell you what -- >> we disagree. >> i'm proud to shut down the government for border security. the people of this country don't want criminals and people that have lots of problems and drugs pouring into our country. so i will take the mantel. i will be the one to shut it down. i'm not going to blame you for it. the last time you shut it down, it didn't work. i'll take the mantel and i'll shut it down for border security. >> you shunt shut it down. >> thank you everybody, everybody. >> shepard: that's how the talks on that topic ended. the president will be proud to shut down the government for border security if he doesn't get what he wants. far from washington, wall street felt the effects of that meeting. stocks dipped into the red when the group just started talking. we're barely in the red now. peter doocy is reporting live on
capitol hill. hi, peter. >> you heard a little bit of it there. the president spent some time reminding the democratic leaders what happened during the last big funding fight. that's when republicans quickly branded it the schumer shut down and it was politically damaging for the democrats. so the democrats already out there, they're calling this the trump shut down even though nothing is finalized yet. >> the bottom line is simple. the president made clear that he wants a shut down. his position, if he sticks to his position for $5 billion wall, he will get no wall and he will get a shut down. >> schumer and pelosi both seem surprised that the cameras kept rolling and the press just stood there once their meeting began. they kept asking the president for the conversation to continue privately. that didn't happen for a while. pelosi says that she's never been part of a meeting like that because normally things stick to
more of a structure. >> the presentation to the press today. so when i said let's have this conversation, they said you want to keep it from the public? no, we don't want to contradict the president again and again in front of the public. but if that's what he wants, that's what we have to do. what he was saying is just not factual. >> i'm told that after the cameras left that meeting and the chatting continues, things were just as candidate as the parts that we saw. shep? >> shepard: we heard from the leaders after this get together and we heard from the white house. >> yes. they think that meeting was very constructive. the white house press secretary sarah sanders just sent this along that says, so far the democrat party has made clear they would rather keep the border open than the government open. the president was grateful to let the press in the meeting so the american people can see while the republicans are fighting to protect our border, democrats are fighting to
protect the illegal immigrants. the president took a minute to remind chuck schumer that his rank thinned in the mid-term elections. >> we have the lowest unemployment we've had in 50 years. >> 50 people of the republican party are losing their offices now because of the transition. people are not -- >> nancy, did we win the senate? we won the senate. >> when the president brags that he won north dakota and indiana, he's in real trouble. >> i did. we did win north dakota and indiana. >> the democratic leader came back here after that meeting to continue drilling down on their talking points about government funding. it seems like the president has already moved open for the afternoon tweeting about james comey and the fbi. shep? >> shepard: order is restored. peter doocy live on capitol hill. let's get more from the hill.
mike emanuel reporting live. hi, mike. >> good afternoon, shep. senate republican leaders sound hopeful there may be cooperation later. perhaps a christmas miracle. missouri senator roy blunt telling reporters, giving president trump something he wants and giving democrats something they want isn't that complicated. >> if you can solve a couple of them together, solve a couple problems together, if you can be for $25 billion in building walls and fences, why can't you give for building walls and fences for $5 billion. it's not that hard a problem to solve. >> daca is a reference to young people brought here by their parents. senator blount throwing out a possibility of including that with border wall money. another senate republican says the president really wants this fight. >> i think he's going to do it. i believed that for some time. prepared to be here for christmas. the president feels very
strongly about the need for a wall. i think he's prepared to do it. >> right now homeland security funding runs out a week from friday late night the 21st. shep? >> shepard: what are you hearing from other democrats after watching the leaders with the president? it felt like one of though showses where the president worked for his base and the leaders worked for their base, you know? >> you're right. connecticut senator richard blumenthal said this would be a ridiculous reason to force a partial shut down. >> i don't think a president of the united states should be proud of shutting down the government over an unnecessary expensive wasteful wall when there's other means of border security that are far more effective. >> delaware democrat senator chris coons says the timing would be lousy. >> shutting down the government in a fit of whether he gets $1
billion more or $5 billion more where they haven't spent the appropriations yet is the grinch stealing christmas move that won't go over well the americans. >> others has suggested nobody wins in a partial shut down. >> shepard: mike emanuel reporting live. two men that were once in president trump's inner circle are expected to ask judges to go easy on them. lawyers for paul manafort responding to accusations that he lied to prosecutors. while lawyers for the one-time national security adviser michael flynn could today explain his side of the story. as our reporting continues on this tuesday afternoon. as a fitness junkie, i customize everything - bike, wheels, saddle. that's why i switched to liberty mutual. they customized my insurance, so i only pay for what i need. i insured my car, and my bike. my calves are custom too, but i can't insure those...

adviser michael flynn. flynn's lawyers have to respond to mueller's sentencing memo from last week. the prosecutor said flynn was so cooperative in their investigation, that he deserved little or no prison time. that document was also mostly blacked out. depending on flynn's attorney's response, we could learn more about what flynn has been telling mueller's team. then there's tomorrow. tomorrow a judge here in new york is scheduled to sentence the president's former long-time attorney and fixer michael cohen. he pleaded guilty to violating campaign finance laws and lying to congress about negotiations to build a trump tower in moscow. the project never happened. in another court filing released friday, federal prosecutors said president trump ordered cohen to buy the silence of the two women before the 2016 election. the president denied he had
affairs with them and blames cohens for problems with the payments. robert mueller is looking for moscow's meddling in the presidential election, possible collusion with members of the president's campaign, whether the president obstructed justice and any evidence of crimes uncovered during the investigation. president trump says there was no collusion and to no obstruction. the chief intelligence officer, catherine herridge reporting live from washington. >> at this hour, we have a status hearing with both sides in d.c. federal court. they're arguing over whether paul manafort violated his plea agreement with the special counsel. you recall in the filing late friday, part of which was public, manafort had inappropriate contact with the white house. the evidence demonstrates that manafort had contact with
administration officials. but manafort's team said he told the trouble but the special counsel doesn't like his answers. the special counsel has pressed manafort on the president's son-in-law, jared kushner. prosecutors have also left the door open to filing additional charges against manafort who as you know already faces years in prison for a conviction on bank and tax fraud in virginia, shep. >> shepard: the flynn filing, that could come at any time? >> that's right. we're expecting his lawyers, former national security adviser mike flynn's lawyers to file what they call the sentencing memo later today. i'm a little confused on the timing. a lot of things going on. if i recall correctly, they have until midnight. this would come well into the evening hours. you remember last week, mueller's team told the court that flynn provided substantial assistance, over 19 interviews and they recommended a light sentence, possibly no jail time at all. what makes this step different is that for the first time we'll hear from flynn and his
attorneys who may explain in his own words his acceptance for responsibilities about lying to investigators about phone call with the russian ambassador and a hardship of the investigation, the toll its taken on his family. you'll recall a year ago when he plead guilty. he said he pled guilty because he thought it was in the best interest of his family. for son context, some of the witnesses worked for the campaign but had never been a target of the special counsel and said their legal bills were crippling, upwards of $250,000 in some cases. >> shepard: breaking news. a live look now at strasburg in france there's on the german border after a shooting there. these are live pictures 19 minutes pasted 9:00 p.m. the mayor has spoken on television and confirmed one person has died, six others are hurt on the scene. the shooter is on the run. video shows it as it unfolded.

government is planning to roll back tariffs on american cars. that's according to a source familiar with the conversation with the top chinese official and u.s. trade reps. right now there's a 40% tax on vehicles in the united states. the source says the chinese officials are bring the tax back down to 15%. that source spoke to blake burman that is live from the white house. what else are they telling you? >> there was a phone call last night with three of the major players, robert lightheiser and steve mnuchin. according to a source familiar with that call, i'm told that china talked about purchases of agricultural products, a road map for future negotiations and how the talks might go on out. the big one is reducing auto tariffs. it was 15%. then the trade war, the trade
spat, however you want to characterize it, china ramped it up to 45. be 25% surcharge will come off to bring it back down to 15 president. president trump seems pleased with this as he tweeted out the following saying very productive conversations with china. watch for some important announcements. shepard, this comes after china last week addressed the theft of intellectual property. that's at the very top of the list for the u.s. teams. so potentially here some movement over the last week or so, shepard. >> shepard: that would be great news. on another subject, we heard the president with the democratic leaders and he spoke briefly about a new chief of staff. >> he went to twitter saying or trying to dispute few if any want this position. over ten people potentially want this job.
and then we saw him as well in the oval office there with nancy pelosi and chuck schumer and he briefly reiterated the point again that this is a job that is desired. watch here. >> we're in no rush over a period of a week or two or maybe less we'll announce who it will be. we have a lot of people that want the position. >> we spoke with kellyanne conway. she would not answer repeatedly if she is a candidate for the position or if she wants the job. conway was on the campaign at the same time as david bossey who on fox and friends did not speculate if he's on the list but said in the interview, the president is going to pick the right person. shepard, one name to keep in mind is the u.s. ambassador to the germany, rick granell. remains to be seen if he wants to remove with all that is going
on in europe. >> shepard: so maybe progress on china tariffs. the government may be retaliating after canada arrested a tech executive. reports that china detained a former diplomat that works with that group. china warned canada, you'll pay a heavy price if you do not release the chief financial officer of the huawei. u.s. intelligence officials have been saying that huawei has been using their devices to spy. u.s. officials are trying to bring her to the u.s. for trial. today she's in court in canada for a bail hearing. the fox business network susan li reporting. developing news on this. hi, susan. >> yes, huawei's cfo back in court in canada. the judge wanted another day to
hear more from the defense's side if she was a flight risk as the u.s. contends. the huawei executive pledging $10 million and guarantees and assets that she will not flee if freed on bail. releasing a number of pictures of her and her family and trying to pick a picture of a domicile life in canada where she has lived the past few years and where she owns a number of multimillion dollar properties. china says there's no explicit connection of the huawei executive and the arrest of a canadian diplomat in china. the ico releasing this statement. >> since china of warning of
grave consequences, a number of canadian delegations have altered their plans to china. the china leg of an asian forest trade commission scrapped plans to visit china as a part of a larger tour. the trump administration is considering a travel advisory for u.s. businesses and executives in light of the huawei arrest. just this hour, we just got word a judge will apparently make the ruling in this huawei bail hearing after 5:00 p.m. today. >> shepard: 5:00 eastern, 2:00 pacific. we'll have it here. stocks all over the place today. we're in the green right now. it started really in the green and thing that whole potus versus the leaders things happened and it went down into the red. now we're back in the green again. it's all over the place. dropped with the president's meeting with the dems after gaining 300 points earlier in the session. gerri willis is over there with
her head on a spinner today. hi, gerri. >> you got that right. yeah, 96 points. that's what that potus leader's meeting meant to the dow. 96 points down at 12:05. that's when the press conference happened with trump, nancy pelosi and chuck schumer. big argument ensued. the president telling the leaders that he's willing to shut the government down if congress doesn't approve funding for the wall. no border security, no government. that's what he's saying. down here on the exchange, some traders saying this is an embarrassment. it's a show now. this is what the the president has to put up with all the time. but the two sides agreeing on one thing, nothing is getting done in 2019. they won't see a lot of legislative initiatives getting through. it has been a hectic day. we're up 134 on the dow right now. we'll see if that holds, shep. >> shepard: gerri willis at the exchange.

hundreds of miles away in idaho. alicia acuna is reporting live. investigators say they have other information from her cell phone now. is that right? >> they do, shep. yes. woodland park police have released a timeline surrounding kelsey's disappearance. the last time she was seen in public was in the noon hour on thanksgiving day from her safe way grocery store when she was shopping with her 1-year-old daughter. later that day, police say kelsey's fiance said he saw her when they exchanged custody of her daughter. three days later on sunday, november 25, police say kelsey's cell phone sent a text to her player saying she wouldn't be in that week. also, on the same day, law enforcement says kelsey's phone pinged a tower near gooding, idaho. her mother that lived in idaho
said this about her daughter. >> she's not the kind that runs off. this is completely out of character. kelsey loves family and friends and her job. >> shep, police say they don't believe there's a threat or any sort of danger to the public at this time, shep. >> shepard: anything else on kelsey's on the yeah say? >> her mother, cheryl, says that patrick is the father of her granddaughter but he and kelsey have never lived together. police say he's cooperating with the investigation and the little girl is now with him. he was invited to yesterday's news conference, but did not attend. >> is patrick a suspect in this case? >> at this point, he's the father of kelsey's daughter. leave it at that. >> so far police say this remains a missing person's case.
>> shepard: thank you. google's top executive facing questions on capitol hill. the ceo testified before the house judiciary committee nearly four hours. lawmakers pressed him on a wide range of issues, including businesses in china, which sensors the internet. >> are any employees having product meeting on this chinese project? >> we have undertaken an internal effort. there's no plans to launch a search service in china. >> are there any current discussions with any member of the chinese government on launching this app? >> we're not in discussions around launching a search protect in china. this is an internal effort. >> shepard: he stopped short of promising that he would pursue a chinese product while ceo. lawmakers are saying they are considering legislation to regulate that industry. and european union says there's
no room for negotiations on the exit of the e.u. the prime minister said the vote was certain to fail and it certainly would have. now she's making a push to try to save her own deal. travelling to meet with european union leaders. her meeting with the german chancellor angela merkel didn't get off to a great start. prime minister may got stuck in the car when her staff went to open the door. she made it out a few minutes later. the fox business network's ashley webster reporting live from london. >> hi, shep. that video of mrs. may stuck in a car as angela merkel was waiting to got a lot of play. she's trapped in the brexit deal she doesn't want and also trapped in her own car. she spent the day meeting with
different leaders. they smiled and hugged and kissed and waved for the cameras. the bottom line, european officials said sorry, we're not changing the deal. she's winging her way back to london as we speak. tomorrow she meets with the irish prime minister. is it too little too late? as she's doing this, trying to keep a brave face, the sharks are circling on her political career, her leadership of the conservative party. speculation very strong that enough letters have been submitted to trigger a vote of confidence. whether that happens or not and who would take over, plenty of speculation. who in the heck would want her job right now. it's a poison chalice, a very difficult job to find a deal with the e.u. that everyone can get behind.
107 days from right now, the united kingdom will say good-bye to the european union, march 29 of next year and looking increasing like they'll be crashing out, which means they'll have no deal at all and that could be chaotic indeed, shep. back to you. >> shepard: ashley webster live in london. russia is responding to secretary of state mike pompeo as america's top diplomat accused russian leaders of stifling liberty and freedom while their people suffer. reports on both sides next. oh!

plan for a hearing on this issue for next month. catherine herridge live in washington. what are we to make of this? >> more information that we're getting on the hearing, shepard. so you remember friday the memos were filed by the special counsel. some of them were public, other parts of the memos were redacted. the judge today, amy jackson, has the benefit of reading all the filings in their entirety from the special counsel. she's made a determination that based on the memos that is insufficient for her to reach a determination over whether paul manafort has been in violation of his plea agreement. in laymen's terms, she says i need more detail from you about the alleged violations of the plea agreement before i can reach some kind of decision over whether i agree with you or whether i agree with the defense that he was trying to tell the truth to the best of his ability. what we're looking at now is several procedural hearings.
a tentative date has been set for the end of january. there will be more horse trading before we get to that point. >> shepard: thanks. mike pompeo ripping to russia for sending bombers around the world. he tweeted his criticism as the kremlin sent two nuclear capable bombers to venezuela calling both governments corrupt. now a spokesman for the russian government says the secretary's comments were inappropriate and undiplomatic. again, this is from the russians. jennifer griffin reporting live. hi, jen. >> hi, shep. the kremlin added a swipe that the pentagon said such criticism is odd coming from a country whose half military budget would be enough to feed the whole of africa. it's been five years since russian sent nuclear capable bobblers to venezuela. before that, they did that in 2008 when tensions were high with the u.s.
