the way and made history. not only a win for the country, but a win for the world. >> brian, thank you for staying with us. we'll be keeping on this shot here. dana perino. now shep. >> shepard: dana, thanks very much. the first lady with a smile that a second ago was ear-to-ear and she and the president of the united states are set to host this dinner coming up now for charles and camilla and honored guests. wore waiting for the next moments to come. here's what's about to happen. the next thing that will happen, they'll allow a pool camera inside to give us a shot of the state dinner. we'll let you see that as well. we're expecting charles and camilla will come in just a moment. they'll let the cameras in to win fieldhouse here so we can hear from president trump and others soon. earlier today, the president had a news conference with theresa may and he talked about a big
12:01 pm
issue here at home. tariffs. the president said it was be foolish for gop lawmakers to try to block his plan to put taxes on all products from mexico. the tariffs set to kick in next week unless mexico does more. unspecified more to stop migrants heading to the u.s. border. critics say the taxes would hurt american consumers and businesses when the cost of goods goes up. if republicans vote to override president trump on this, it would be one of the party's strongest acts of opposition. mike emanuel reporting live from capitol hill. first john roberts who is traveling with the president and live in london. we wait for this event to begin. john, good evening. >> shep, good evening to you. we'll keep one eye going on what's going on at windfield house as we tell you about what happened earlier today. i had the opportunity to ask president trump a question about the mexico issue for the first time since mexican officials
12:02 pm
started saying publicly, really appealing to president trump that they have been doing more to apprehend central american migrants in southern mexico illegally and deport them from the country. the president though seemed unimpressed with this when i put the question to him saying that mexico has not done enough to avoid the tariffs which would be imposed monday at 5%. back to you. apparently there's an arrival. >> shepard: it appears prince charles and duchess camilla are here. we'll listen in to hear the greetings and the rest.
12:03 pm
>> shepard: now waiting to see if they'll speak. it's not scheduled. you never know. and a look inside before the dinner that the president and first lady are hosting. the president saying thank you very much. in they go. john roberts, the reviews largely have been glowing for all of this. the president hitting the right notes according to observer there's in great britain and of course here across the states. >> yeah, other than the critics of the president, like the opposition leader jeremy corbyn and the mayor sadiq khan, many people here in britain, this
12:04 pm
state visit has gone very well. i mean, the dinner the queen had yesterday and all of the pomp and ceremony involved with the president and the first lady being at buckingham palace was quite extraordinairextraordinar. only the third time that something like that has happened. it happened with president bush and president bush in 2003. it's a very high honor reserved for a small group of presidents. the general consensus is that things have gone very well in terms of this state visit. the meetings today with prime minister theresa may went very well. in addition to all of that, the two sides sat down, they talked about trade. we will get into brexit in just a couple minutes. there's real hope here that the united states and britain will have a trade deal in place for when the u.k. pulls out of brexit. let's talk about what we talked about at the top here. this is the president looking at what's going on in mexico and
12:05 pm
what mexican officials are saying in terms of trying to apprehend more central american migrants and the president deporting them. the president says it's not enough and tariffs will go into place on monday. listen to what the president said. >> i don't think they'll do that. if they do that, it's foolish. nothing more important than borders. i've had tremendous republican support. mexico called. they're going to meet wednesday. secretary pompeo will be at the meeting along with a few others that are very good at this. we'll see if we can do something. it's more likely that the tariffs go on and we'll probably be talking during the time the tariffs are on and they'll be paid. >> the president also took aim at republicans that might try to block him from imposing the tariffs. the president said he thinks it would be foolish if they did that. the democratic side, senator
12:06 pm
chuck schumer said he believes the president is bluffing. listen here. >> i have a feeling that this one just popped into his head. it's clear that lots of people in the administration didn't agree. i believe that he will back off when faced with the opposition among business, among his own republicans. when he sees when a dumb move he's made. >> the president believes that mexico can change this quickly if they made a decision to do that, shep. >> shepard: john, you mentioned the british planned exit from the european union and the work to get a plan together on that matter. >> yeah, this is what eventually led to the down fall of theresa may, that is stepping down as prime minister friday, the day after the president leaves europe after commemorating the 75th anniversary of d-day in normandy. she tried three times. didn't get it through parliament even though she did get a deal
12:07 pm
with the e.u. leaves a lot of political uncertainty as to what the way forward will be. the president has urged whomever replaces theresa may to go with a no deal hard brexit by the end of october. one of the deal that could replace theresa may, conservative politicians have suggested we have to have a deal with the e.u. and let's delay the brexit through 2020. both the president and theresa may believe that brexit eventually will happen. it's interesting the president pointed out a couple months ago, theresa may did not take his advice, which was to sue the european union. this is a great, great country. they want their own identity. they want their own borders. >> i believe it's in the best interest of the u.k. to leave the european union with a deal.
12:08 pm
the president suggested that i sue the european union. we didn't do. we went through negotiations and came out with a good deal. >> a lot of political turmoil going on in britain right now. with theresa may stepping down friday, the conservative party has to choose a new leader. a lot of jockeying over who that person will be. will that government be able to -- might there be elections called later in 2019 and how could those go. if there's a hard brexit, might that create more economic and political turmoil? right now a lot of things are up in the air right now, shep. nobody is sure at the moment where they're doing to land. >> shepard: all right. john roberts live in london. we're expecting video inside the state dinner and potentially at least some words from inside there. when that happens, we'll take you there. first, dave lawler from axios. good to see you. >> good to be with you. >> shepard: do we have a sense
12:09 pm
for how this is playing in britain and beyond? >> trump gave them a headline. he said this is the greatest partnership ever. there was a lot of nervousness that this would be an i'm -- embarrassment for theresa may. and there was the protests. there was worry that it would overshadow everything. if you're in downing street, you're happy with the way it's going. trump has been complimentary of theresa may. he's interacted well with the royal family. this is certainly perhaps a good outcome for theresa may and downing street. >> shepard: watching the video of the protesters there. it was yesterday that we reported that organizers of the protests suggested there might be as many as 250,000 people on the streets. that has not happened.
12:10 pm
not even close. there was a little rain this morning. that being said, the protests did not happen the way they thought they would. as far as how everybody seems to be getting along publicly, out so i of sadiq khan, the major of london, i mean, i don't know what more you can ask for. given the past especially with theresa may and the president. >> right. exactly. as you mentioned, the protests, we've been expecting the protests ever since this visit was announced. there was weeks of build-up to the protests. they haven't been quite as massive as the organizers had hoped and the people in the media expected. president trump has said he didn't see any big protests at all. it's all fake news. obviously they are happening, but the scale is smaller. like you said, his interactions with theresa may have been cordial. trump has said she deserves credit for the way she's handled things the last few months.
12:11 pm
obviously she's going out on a low note again having made brexit. while arriving during a political crisis, you can see the meetings devolving into just a spectacle and it hasn't quite worked out that way. i'm sure theresa may will be breathing a sigh of relief. >> shepard: she and her country and her party have a lot of work ahead even after she's no longer in charge come friday. dave, good to see you. thanks a lot. >> thank you. >> shepard: taking a break early today because we know what's coming up. we're going to have a look inside this dinner coming up in just a minute. we'll have more on the president's back and forth with his own party on capitol hill about taxes on mexican goods coming into the united states, whether or not members in hits own party get out in front of that. the president's warning. there's a slew of news and our reporting continues on this tuesday afternoon. why go with anybody else? we know their rates are good, we know that they're always going to take care of us.

12:17 pm
more specific than that, to stop migrants from getting in the united states, he's going to begin with tariffs right away. the republicans are pushing back on this and senator rand paul quoted as saying a short time ago that the senate may have a veto proof majority to stop the tariffs. so there's a back and forth that is happening now. mike emanuel with details on that. he's live. hi, mike. >> good afternoon. it's an awkward time for a lot of republicans on capitol hill. mitch mcconnell a short time ago was pretty blunt saying there's not much support among senate republicans for tariffs. >> what i'm telling you. we're hoping that doesn't happen. we appreciate the opportunity. we spent our entire lunch talking to representatives from the white house about this issue. uno the mexican delegation is here. apparently the talks a going well. >> this comes on the context of
12:18 pm
senate democrats are watching to see how republicans handle this issue. chuck schumer predicted the president will cave. when one senate republican said 5% might not be the end of the world, dick durbin fired back. >> it's negligible unless it's your company that will have to shut down. there will be an impact on the price of goods coming forth between the united states and mexico that will raise prices on consumers, cost american jobs and frankly it's going to hurt my farmers to be blunt with you. >> ahead of a huge meeting with top trump officials, mexico's foreign minister is due here to meet later this hour with nancy pelosi. mike? >> thank you. the white house sending out more orders for former government employees to ignore subpoenas from the house judiciary committee investigating president trump. this time the chief of staff,

hold this lawless administration accountable. house democrats are united around the principle that no one is above the law. >> i think it's very difficult of how you can obstruct something that never happened. if you have no collusion, how can you have obstruction? because you can't obstruct something that didn't take place. >> a contempt vote is scheduled for a week today. a lot can happen in seven days, shep. >> shepard: thanks, catherine herridge. live on the hill. thanks so much. we're waiting the president and the first lady along with their guests in london this evening. we're expecting to have a look around inside their dinner in just a moment. first, a young couple from texas went to fiji on a dream vacation when they started feeling sick. first, they complained their hands were numb and eventually they died. health officials say they still don't know what killed the couple. details of that investigation coming up. ♪
