she got to ring the bell. i don't blame her. wish her the very best. thank for joining us. i'll be on "the five" later on. it's a thursday. i'm dana perino. here's shep. >> shepard: it looks like those hollywood stars accused of bribing their kids way into top schools could have saved a lot of money. new studies shows students with similar grades have the same level of success no matter how elite the university. also, the times when college in general could be a waste of money. we'll look into the study that lists the top ten jobs not worth the tuition it takes to get the degree. reporting begins now. we've been tweeted. our reporting begins with president trump announcing by twitter a change to decades of united states middle east policy. tweet away. the president tweeting this
12:01 pm
afternoon that america should fully recognize israel's sovereignty over the golan heights, one of the most disputed regions in the world. the year was 1967. israeli forces captured the territory from syrian troops during the six-days war. annexed it in 1981. the united nations condemned that move. president trump's announcement follows repeated pressure from benjamin netanyahu. netanyahu facing a tough re-election race next month after being indicted on several criminal charges. some analysts say the president's dramatic policy shift by twitter could give the prime minister a boost in the polls back home. secretary of state mike pompeo is in jerusalem right now and just a short time ago the secretary said the president made an important decision for the people of israel. then he tweeted it. we have team fox coverage.
12:02 pm
trey yingst reporting live. first, to john roberts live on the north lawn. john? >> good afternoon to you. this has been swirling a number of weeks now. the president's tweet caught everybody by surprise. of course, you'll remember in 1981 israel annexed the golan heights, was never officially recognized as a part of israel. it's been alternately described as being occupied territory by israel or territory under the control of israel. it was the most recent american characterization of it. now we find out from president trump that he's going to officially recognize the golan heights as part of israel. here's the tweet to which you referred saying -- >> maria bartiromo just walked behind me. she sat down to interview the president.
12:03 pm
it will air in its full tomorrow morning on "mornings with maria." she was kind enough to give us the president's reaction. here's what she asked him and here's what the president said. >> mr. president, let me end on the golan heights. you tweeted about this today. you said it's time for the u.s. to recognize israel's sovereignty in the golan heights. why now? >> i've been thinking about doing it a hard time. no president has done it. >> is it about the re-election? >> i wouldn't know about that. i wouldn't even know about that i have no idea. i hear he's doing okay. i don't know if he's doing great right now. i hear he's doing okay. i would imagine the other side, whoever is against him is in favor of what i just did. every president said do that. i get it done. >> you heard maria say is this about netanyahu's election. the president said i wouldn't know about that.
12:04 pm
the president spoke with netanyahu before sending out his tweet. netanyahu will be here next week. we don't know what will happen, whether or not there will be a formal declaration, something that the president might sign while netanyahu is here or it will just be a verbal affirmation. we don't know right now. netanyahu is appreciative of what the president did tweeting out at a time when iran uses syria as a platform to destroy israel, thank you, mr. trump. it was also supported by rubio, cruz and lindsey graham that tweeted out -- >> don't know how that would go, but there's been a lot of support for israel in the congress. we'll see. >> shepard: john, thank you. team fox coverage continues.
12:05 pm
trey yingst reporting live in jerusalem. trey? >> we spoke with mike pompeo just minutes before the president tweeted out the announcement. i asked the secretary of state if he had any update on the situation and whether or not a decision had been made. he didn't comment at that time. the trump administration as a whole making this decision. it's hard to underscore how much that changes the next month in this region. with upcoming israeli elections, you can't ignore the benefits that prime minister netanyahu receives. he's facing three indictments related to corruption charges. you can hear the excitement in his voice and he reacted to the decision by the trump administration to formally recognize the golan heights as part of israel. i want to say two words. thank you, mike pompeo. thank you, president trump. thank you, america.
12:06 pm
>> while prime minister netanyahu is focused on the april elections, it's important to note the regional implications of recognizing the golan heights as israel and not syria. the iranian group hezbollah is working hard to entrench itself in the country. barb barb bashar al-assad said he will attack if they don't leave. israel is facing continuing conflict in the south due to iranian proxies. with this announcement, they could face more conflict and fighting in the north and looking at a two-front conflict in the region. >> shepard: trey yingst reporting live. so when you order tickets for a plane, you can get another seat for more room or early boarding. you have options.
12:07 pm
turns out, the airlines have options as well when they buy their jet. for instance, some may opt for extra safety features. or some may opt for safety features. some may not. take the case of the two brand new boeing max jets that nose dived and killed everybody on board. the one on the left that you'll see in just a moment is the aftermath from this month's ethiopian airlines crash. on the right indonesia's lion aircraft in october. in each of these, "the new york times" reports in today's editions that the pilots didn't have a warning light and indicator because those were optional safety features that boeing charges extra for. some airlines don't buy them. the times reports those safety upgrades could have alerted pilots about exactly what was wrong with the jets, including pilots that were said to be
12:08 pm
thumbing through the manuel what do do before everybody died. an aviation analyst said boeing charges for them because it can. but they're vital for safety. other analysts have questioned the features importance with one telling our producers, pilots should know how to recover if they lose control. in indonesias a faulty sensor forced the plane in a nose dive. here in the united states, there's a chance that you have flown on a boeing max plane without those optional safety upgrades. united airlines told us that they do not have the extra warning indicator because their pilots used other data to fly the jet. southwest and american airlines that fly versions told the newspaper that their boeing max fleet is equipped with the features. the faa does not require them. but the times notes in its
12:09 pm
reporting that boeing may start making some changes anyway. trace gallagher reporting live. trace? >> shep, the deal is 736 max plains have two vane like devices that me shush balance and air flow to determine if the nose of the plane is up, down or level. when the nose is too high, that can lead to a stall. worth the angle of attack sensors are optional, the 737 anti-stall system was built to respond to one of the sensors. and if it's wrong, that is an issue as investigators in the two recent crashes are learning. the optional safety equipment that boeing has installed in some max 8 planes is a disagree light. it tells pilots that the angle of attack sensors are getting different readings allowing pilots to react. here's an aviation expert. watch. >> the light should be there. it's a warning light. and the angle of attack light
12:10 pm
should be there as well. it's time for all aircraft manufacturers to have it displayed to the pilot, including airline manufacturers. >> so boeing will make two fixes. make sure the anti-stall system takes readings from both angles of attack sensors and make sure there's a light in the cockpit showing whether both sensors are getting the exact same readings. shep? >> shepard: there's other questions about this anti-stall system. >> the biggest question being why it wasn't included in the 737 max operational manual and why pilots were not trained on it. victims are suing boeing saying the airline blinded pilots and tied their hands. the justice department is investigating whether boeing engineers were allowed to oversee their own safety protocols. boeing said all 737 pilots are trained on how to recognize and correct a run-away stabilizer. the small wing on the table

suction that pushes the nose up or down. the primary focus of the lion air crash and ethiopian air crash is how pilots that are supposed to control a plane from a computer system that they knew nothing about. >> shepard: thanks, trace. 25 years after a blow to the knee stunned the world and made two women household names, another attack on an ice skater by a competitor. first, there's word that joe biden may announce that he's running and in doing so, may announce that as he enters the race, he's picking up a vice presidential candidate. right away. more than a year before any candidate would even formally accept a nomination. we'll speak to the reporter that got the scoop. and of the woman in question who might be his number 2. that's still to come as reporting continues on this

12:16 pm
about cosentyx. >> shepard: the former vice president, joe biden, may enter the 2020 presidential race as we heard but he may enter it with a running mate from the get-go. the news web side axios says that biden is considering whether he should make an announcement with a promise to cheese stacey abrams as his v.p. and make the announcement at once. abrams is no doubt a rising star in the democratic party. you may remember months ago she narrowly lost the governor's race in georgia. a contest so close they were still counting ballots ten days later. then she delivered the democrat's response to the president's state of the union address. the analysts thought she did well. axios reports biden and abrams
12:17 pm
met last week to talk about her next moves. fox news has reached out. no response. our researchers have not found another example of a nonincumbent candidate like biden entering the race with a running mate. just yesterday stacey abrams told a crowd in nashville that she will meet with any democratic hopeful but she has two requirements. one, he or she must have a plan to combat voter suppression and two the person must believe that georgia is a swing state. let's bring in elaina train. she didn't write the story but she's up to date on it. nobody has even really talked about doing something like this in the past largely because most want to wait until the end, find one of the other candidates that is around and might provide some energy to this campaign and things like that. >> exactly. >> shepard: this would be really unusual. >> it would be. there is no precedent for this in modern history.
12:18 pm
like you mentioned. i think that from, you know, the biden campaign's point of view, something like this would be making a big splash to a democratic field that is crowded with a lot of young people, diverse candidates. someone like biden this could undermine the criticism that he's an old white guy if he announces he's running with someone like stacey abrams that shot to fame after that failed gubernatorial race. she's 45. she's 31 years younger than biden. so she provides this racially and generationally diverse perspective to a campaign line this. >> shepard: you wonder if they have considered whether the optics could backfire, whether it could be seen as -- i don't know. not perfect. >> totally. i think there's a lot of risks with something like this, especially because like we said, it could come off as phony, especially for someone like biden who has after all of his years of service been able to
12:19 pm
maintain this air of authenticity and -- >> shepard: uncle joe. >> yeah. exactly. something like this could tarnish that reputation. also, i think that months from now he could be on the stage during a debate and people will question why isn't another candidate on stage, somebody like kamala harris or beto o'rourke not make a worthy running mate? why did you choose stacey abrams? there's a risk here because she's at what a lot of people are saying the apex of her career and she has a lot of options in choosing someone like biden immediately could limit her. there's no guarantee that he would be the nominee if he runs. >> what's has come out of the biden camp? he does tend to say thing when -- i don't know. >> what do you mean? >> shepard: you know, he sort of kind of said i'm going to run the other day without meaning to say it parentally, unless that was a gimmick. i wondered if they had responded
12:20 pm
anyway about this notion. >> when we -- for the reporting, my colleague, mike allen, he spoke with advisers to the former vice president, not with joe biden himself. but everyone that is close to biden said that he's 95% there. this announcement is eminent. i think that on top of it now, it's just trying to figure out what are the best ways to enter this in a way that shows he has great chances. that's the big take-away here. someone like joe biden who has 40-plus years of experience under his belt, far more experienced than the other democratic challengers in the running nor the presidential bid, eight years in a white house and yet he still is concerned about his chances here. i think it's really interesting to see that these are some of the techniques that they're debating. >> shepard: we'll know soon enough. thanks, alaina. drama in the world of figure skater. one accusing the other of trying
