6:03 am
by his homeland security team. the president's first stop on the status of 20 to 30 minute drive in bethlehem where he met with mahmoud abbas. after the meeting, the president gave her for marks on the manchester attack in which he had this new name for the terrorists. >> so many young, beautiful, innocent people enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers. i won't call them monsters because they would like that term. do you think that's a great name. i will call them from now on losers. throughout the day in israel, the president was alongside the israeli prime minister, his hope
6:04 am
for middle east peace. >> i also firmly believe that if israel and the palestinians could make peace, it will begin a process of peace all throughout the middle east and not with the in amazing accomplishment. reporter: the president expects that the largest holocaust memorial in israel momentarily adhere to the israel museum. back to you. dagen: blake pointing out that president trump has spoken with british prime minister theresa nagy speaking outside 10 downing street yet let's listen. >> this is one of the worst terrorist experiences we've experienced in the united kingdom. although it is not the first time manchester has suffered in this way, it is the worst attack the city has six. in the worst ever to hit the north of england.
6:05 am
the police and security services or work unit speed to establish the complete picture, but i wanted to tell you what i can at this stage. at 10:33 last night, police were called to report an explosion at manchester arena near victoria train station. we now know that a single terrorist detonated his device near one of the outfits of the venue, deliberately choosing a time and place to cause maximum carnage and to kill and injure indiscriminately. the explosion coincided with the conclusion of a pop concert which was attended by many young families and groups of children. all acts of terrorism are cowardly attacks on innocent people.
6:06 am
but this attack stands out for its appalling, sick and cowardice deliberately targeting innocent, defenseless children and young people who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable night of their lives. as things stand, i can tell you in addition to the attacker, 22 people have died and 59 people have been injured. those who are injured are being treated any different hospitals across greater manchester. many are treated for life-threatening conditions. we know that among those killed and injured were many children and young people. we struggle to comprehend the warped and twisted mind this is a ro packed th young children not hesitate to cherish, but an opportunity for carnage. we can continue to resolve to follow such attacks in the future, to take on and defeat
6:07 am
the ideology that often feels this violence and to turn out the others responsible for the attack to seek them out and bring them to justice. police and security services believe the attack was carried out by one man, but they now need to know whether he was a teen allowed for his part a wider group. go take some time to establish these facts and the investigation will continue. police and security services will be given all the resources they need to complete that task. the police and security services believe they know the identity of the perpetrator, but at this stage of their investigation, we cannot confirm his name. the police and emergency services have as always acted with great courage and on behalf of the country or want to express our gratitude to them. that is in accordance with the plans they have in place in the exercises they conduct to test
6:08 am
those plans and they performed with the utmost professionalism. 400 police officers were involved in the operation through the night and many paramedics, doctors and nurses have worked out well they admit traumatic and terrible thing to say of guys that care for the wounded. significant resources have been deployed to the police investigation and there continue to be visible patrols of my manchester which include the deployment of armed officers. people who live and work in manchester remained the large place between manchester arena and victoria station which will be in place for some time. the station is closed and will remain closed all the detailed forensic searches underway. we know that many friends and relatives of many people caught up in the attacker's though trying to find out what is happening to children, brothers,
6:09 am
sisters, parents and loved ones. please think of those people who are experiencing the unimaginable word and if you have any information at all relating to the attack, please contact greater manchester police. the threat level remains severe. that means a terrorist attack remains highly likely that the independent joint terrorism analysis center which said the basis of the intelligence available to them will assess this throughout the day and the days ahead. later today i will travel to name country manchester to meet police in hot goods. the mayor of greater manchester and a permanent members of the emergency services have come to manchester's agent moment of need nsa announced last night, the general election campaign has been suspended. i will share another meeting of cobra later today.
6:10 am
a terrible moments like these, it is customary for leaders, politicians and others to condemn the perpetrators and declare the terrorists will not win. the fact that we've been here before and the fact that we need to say this again does not make it any less true. were i so often while they experienced the worst of humanity in manchester last night, we also saw the best. the cowardice of the attacker and that the bravery of the emergency services and the people of manchester. the dividers met countless acts of kindness that brought people closer together and did the days ahead, those must be the things we remember. the images we hold in our mind should not be does this senseless slaughter, that the ordinary men and women who put concerns about their own safety to one side and rushed to help.
6:11 am
the men and women of the emergency services who worked tirelessly to bring comfort to help and to save lives or the messages to solidarity and hope of all those who opened their homes to the victims, for they are the images that embody the spirit of manchester and disparage it written, a spirit that two years of conflict and terrorism have never been broken and will never be broken. there will be difficult days ahead. we offer our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of those affected. we offer our full support to the authorities, the emergency and security services as they go about their work and we all, every single one of us stand at the people of manchester at this terrible time. and today, let us remember those who died at all a break those who help.
6:12 am
based in the knowledge that the terrorists will never win and our values, our country and our way of life will always prevail. trade to dallas british prime minister theresa may in front of number 10 downing street. her first remarks on the terror attack in manchester last night. to reset my pointing out 22 dead plus the attacker, 59 injured. many critically. teresa may fade the timing and location of the attack by one lone attacker so far we know gary towards maximum carnage, unquote. 400 police officers on the scene overnight looking into this summer researching this, trying to track down the individual, trying to figure out that she pointed out police need to know
6:13 am
whether this person was acting alone or part of a wider group. it may not yet release. we also followed president trance movements in israel. he is at the holocaust memorial in jerusalem for a brief flame ceremony at. they could expect brief remarks from him. he won the next hour move on to the israelis and where we are expecting some more extensive remarks from president trump, betty sardi weighed in on the terror attack in manchester, referring to these terrorists as evil losers, unquote. i won't call them monsters because they would like that term. joining us now from a senior fellow at the london center for policy research, tony schaeffer and director of the institute for politics and strategy at carnegie mellon university. thank you both of you for joining us today. if you are looking into this terror attack, again, this is
6:14 am
the second attack in britain this year after the one involving a vehicle one then. this is a very different attack given the improvised explosive device geared towards kuester resubmits term, maximum carnage. >> i'm sorry i disagree with the prime minister. it's important to look at the images for what happened. world war ii we did not turn away and go on with our lives. we have to accept the fact we're at war. soft measures is what got us here. it's clear that. secondly, to your point, this is a military grade explosives that was used, with nails and bolts and things like that in an enclosed place which is why you have 22 is the number dead and injured. and frankly as part of the network. everything i've heard and seen
6:15 am
indicates this was a well thought symbolic target, a u.s. symbol of who we are, entertainment arianna cronkite during the time of her president's trip overseas and defeating aces. this is hugely symbolic, hugely evil and the president needs to push aside some of those like h.r. mcmaster trying to soft pedal the idea of not calling radicalism and political islam what it is. we need to do that in the need to do it rapidly. train to point out the second terror attack in britain this year. they attacked london transit system in 205,452 people were killed. but it also took place four years to the day after your soldierly rick b. was hacked to death outside an army barracks by two islamist extremists. to that point, is there any
6:16 am
symbolism of the timing of this attack you think? >> there may be symbolism of the time and the way you described it, but there's symbolism of the timing of the late tony schaeffer described it at the american president in the middle east pushing a very aggressive agenda of counterterrorism. i think we want to look at it not just from the symbolisms to employ, but the geopolitical reality donald trump unlike many others among western leaders and those in the united state have attempted to address. america first theory is being tested on his trip abroad, his first trip as president. he has said america's interest of the security interest will guide our foreign policy. common interests not just with
6:17 am
the g-7 western industrial countries, but those in the middle east are also under threat. when you think about it in the last couple of days, he has spoken to about it or does the united nations heads of government, those countries part of the global community. he's met with them, talked about counterterrorism is a common problem, a way to build a broader coalition. the key symbolism here is the world is going to get united around this common threat. dagen: i want to bring up the issue of where this attack took place. again, this was an attacker who went after and killed children. ariana grande was a nickelodeon star. her fan base are not just teenagers but preteens of little children. this happened as we moved into the summer concert season in the united states. clearly not enough is being done
6:18 am
to protect people attending the concert. do you expect more security measures to be put in place here and abroad under freeness and even sporting events? >> to begin with, colonel schaeffer is absolutely right. we are at work. this is a military combatant with the military grade on and we are seeing here at target that no doubt in my mind there were some reconnaissance done, planning them. i believe other people involved and they executed the operation. what do we do moving forward? there has to be changes in our rules of engagement when it comes to investigate and collect data and analyzing intelligence with regard to potential terrorists not only in this country but the u.k. we really have to step up our game and it's going to take a lot of surveillance, human intelligence and we have to begin aggressively intercepted communications here and
6:19 am
overseas. >> i want to throw something out to tony and steve. no dispute here that we are at war. islamic terrorism is a global problem. we should point out as a matter of good journalism we don't know the identity of the attacker in this case. in moments like this, we have to wait for the facts to come to us. we're still waiting to find out who the attacker is in what were the attacker might be a part of. it's important not to get too far ahead of the story. >> we do know that the scale it would take to develop an explosive device like this. >> is intelligence officer, i'm telling you based on my analysis of the tactical situation, the way the list of its use, this is either a isis or al qaeda. i bet you a months salary this is isis. i understand the journalistic standards, which i'd appreciate the facts. still maintain them. this would be a radical islamists, not the ira.
6:20 am
teresa and i made this point that manchester itself was bombed by the ira. take a serious and as you recall the peace process resulted in the ira in northern ireland in positions of peace. we will not get positions at peace because the out of sunlight the northern irish are not rational. we have to accept the fact this is an irrational act done in a way to maximize symbolic affects of terror and until we decide we are going to deal with the terror, go into the heart of dirt is, which we are doing from the defeating aces in iraq and syria. we have go and get ahead of them. i know you have to be technically fair and balanced on this. i'm telling you right now this is an islamic terrorist fact. >> are we more exposed are less exposed to in the u.s. and the u.k.? a lot of incidents like this in europe over the last couple of years. how would you size up, tony,
6:21 am
america's exposure compared to europe's in this kind of attack? >> excellent question. we have a lot more free material available for some and plan to do this. in this case, this was a military grade explosives. the sound sounded like an ied effort go off in afghanistan. i believe was military grade. targeted military was sincere. not saying it couldn't get in. clearly i believe we will find this bomber was related to the network which exists in europe, which has been not defeated clearly. there's a network here but it's not sophisticated or able to function. we are ahead of the game. the need is for us to stay ahead of the game. being complacent will not not prevent the facts here. dagen: i'm going to give you find the word. >> i actually think president trump is on the right path in its counterterrorism strategy, which is to proclaim as many
6:22 am
heads of government across the globe that we have a shared interest in a shared humanity in combating terrorism and making it the existential threat, understanding that is in fact what it is. bipartisan elites have said it's only those countries with nuclear weapons or adversaries are strategic competitors like russia, china, north korea. trump has said no, that is not afraid. terrorism as much an existential threat. i think that is what this trip is about any supporting economic and political reform in those countries which would pitch at the root cause of even the lone wolf who are out there doing the enormous damage that what we've just seen in manchester. the american president is on the right path. dagen: well said that some of our greatest enemies have no borders.
6:23 am
chiron skynyrd, thank you so much. lieutenant colonel tony schaeffer to you this morning. we continue breaking news coverage of the deadliest attack on british soil in more than a decade. a suicide bomber kill at least 22 people, killing 22 others after detonated an improvised explosive device outside the ariana grande concert in manchester, england late last night britain time. fox news senior foreign correspondent greg talcott is covering the story from manchester. he has the very latest. i understand you are at victoria station adjacent to the scene of the attack. >> exactly right. just behind me is that it already station connect it to the manchester arena. in between the two of them, what we now know is a terror attack or comment 21,000 come in many young, many children, many teenagers coming out of the concert.
6:24 am
we now know 22 people were killed. 59 and shared and many of them children and teenagers. let's listen to a little bit of what prime minister teresa and i has to say. a message with a lot of interesting and shocking detail. take a listen. >> this was among the worst terror incidents we've ever experienced in the united kingdom. although it is not the first time manchester have suffered in this way, it is the worst attack the city has experienced and the worst ever to hit the north of england. >> police believe it was a lone wolf attacker. that is an individual with an ied, that was detonated at publication meant to do maximum carnage. we've heard reporters every nut
6:25 am
and bolt and things we've seen in the mideast attached to the explosive just again to amplify the carnage. they said that the authorities know who did it come to know who this person is that they are not revealing the identity of the person. she also said however they are now looking at whether what kind of a network might have been supporting him. we are also learning through the prime minister and other reports at area hospitals treating the wounded and prime minister may now says that many of those are in her words, by threatening conditions. i don't need to say this too often. children and teenagers among the bulk of those injured in those killed. this is a serious attack with a maximum cowardice and she also said the u.k. would stand up to the terror network.
6:26 am
this major city, and second biggest metropolis in the u.k. on shut down. the train station close. the authorities come to the surround effect that good one more point to note. there were still missing children, children who did not come home to their families or whose parents could not find when they were there outside the concert to meet them. and horrendous, horrendous attack. they've seen a lot of attacks in the last couple years here. back to you. train to thank you for that reporting. a horrifying scene that resonates with people that just in britain, but around the globe to children killed by the terrorists. continued coverage of the deadly terror attack during the ariana grande concert in manchester, england. the security implications ask him or follow president trump to the israel museum where he will
6:27 am
make remarks that he's at the holocaust memorial right now. you can see this seems fair from jerusalem. more straightahead. stay with us.
6:28 am
of that evil or the scope of the anguish and destruction. it was history's darkest hour. millions of innocent wonderful and beautiful lives, men, women and children were extinguished as part of a systematic attempt to eliminate the jewish people. it was the most savage crime against god and children and it's our solid duty to mourn, to grieve and to honor every single life that was so cruelly and viciously taken. as elie izelle said, for the dead and the living we must bare
6:29 am
and only when remember the families that were torn apart who suffered the terrible darkness and evil who endured the unbear i believe horror of the holocaust, only then can we prevent this agony from ever repeating. this place and this entire nation are a testament to the unbreakable spirit of the jewish people. through persecution, oppression, death and destruction the jewish people have persevered. they have thrived. they have become so successful in so many places and they have enlightened the world. the state of israel is a strong
6:30 am
and soaring monument to the solemn pledge repeat and affirm never again. the star of david waves proudly above this cherished land. as long as we refuse to be silent in the face of evil, as long as we refuse to dim the light of truth in the midst of tackerness, as long as we refuse to become bystander to. barbarity will ultimately prevail. with saddens for the lives and dreams that were stole from this earth with the determination to always keep the memories of the victims alive and we ask god to
6:31 am
give us the strength, wisdom and counselor to chart the righteous path. thank you, god liz the memory -- god bless the memory of the me god bless the state of israel. thank you for having me. thank you. dagen: that was president speaking at holocaust memorial. president trump will move on to the israel museum where he will give additional remarks, probably more extensive remarks and later this morning roughly 8:45, 9:00 o'clock he will leave to rome italy.
6:32 am
we would like to listen to benjamin netanyahu and his remarks. let's listen to net. >> thank you, mr. president. you are the first american president who chose to include israel on first foreign trip, you're the first president in office to visit the western wall we were so deeply move today seeing you touch wall and melania trump touching the wall and equally moved when we saw your daughter ivanka and your son-in-law jared do the same. now you touch other stones. you honor today the memory of
6:33 am
6 million jews who were murdered in the holocaust. a few weeks ago you gave a powerful speech in the holocaust memorial day in washington, d.c. and today in this solemn place great monuments of remembrance we remember the holocaust, we remember the hatred towards jews that consume the defenseless people, we pledge never to be defenseless against that hatred again and to fulfill that pledge, israel must always be able to defend itself, by itself against any threat. i appreciate america's long-standing commitment to this principle and mr. president, i appreciate your commitment to that principle, your commitment
6:34 am
to the security to the one and only jewish state centers entrusted in securing the jewish future. you said, mr. president, just now that we must confront evil in the world, we must confront the barbarians. they are sadly still with us. i want to say something about the bloody horror in manchester last night. the slaughter of innocent must be condemned no matter where it occurs, manchester, san bernardino or jerusalem. we all must unit to defeat it. today you call the terrorists losers, i know you agree with me that it's our job to make sure that they can't to lose. we will defeat them.
6:35 am
thank you, thank you to first lady melania trump, thank you for taking such a strong stance for jewish and the israel people. it comes from the heart of all of us, thank you, mr. president. dagen: we heard some very strong words condemning the terror attack in manchester from leaders around the world today and you just heard from prime minister of israel benjamin netanyahu, terror is terror is terror and we must all unit to defeat. that comes in the heels of president trump's remarks the holocaust memorial in jerusalem and we also earlier this hour heard from prime minister theresa may talking about the maximum carnage that that terror attack was designed to leash on children. 22 children including children in the manchester terror attack. president trump will move on to
6:36 am
the israel museum. we will hear from him again in the next hour as his fist overseas trip continues, he departs for rome at roughly 8:45 eastern time this morning. joining me you fox news military general jack keane to weigh in on what he is hearing during trump's trip so far and certainly his reaction to the terror attack in manchester, england. people have been very worried for sometime about individuals in europe, in britain who have left that country to go join jihadist groups in syria and iraq and then come back and wreak havoc. what do you say? >> i can't think of the symbolism of prime minister netanyahu's speech in the shrine
6:37 am
in holocaust. they were all tired of world war i. they all had experienced it and we still have complacency dealing with terrorism. i think that's what president trump has done so wonderfully well in the middle east because he has gone to the breeding grown in the middle east and confronted the nations there, and told them i will stand with you, let's form an alliance for the first time, we are actually putting together a comprehensive strategy to deal with it, we have argued on this network for years that we need an alliance of countries to stand up against this and he's called out these countries and told them, i can't undermine the ideology, your national and clerics have got to do this and you have to stop financing it and if they're in land, drive them out.
6:38 am
i will help you do that. here in europe, think about this. there have been over seven nato nations attacked by isis repeatedly including the united states. the only nato has ever gone to war after 9/11 when we were attacked here. why isn't nato at war with isis? we should be. there's complacency with europe. they don't want to be at war. i hope when president trump goes to nato gets them more committed. we should have driven isis out of syria a year and a half ago and we are still there as opposed to crushing it with capability that we truly have. dagen: general, he moves onto nato, given what you were talking about, his word towards the muslim word and arab nations over the week, do you think that
6:39 am
strong language and the call of those countries coming together to unit to fight terrorism. do you think that it would result in action by those countries? >> yes, do i. first of all, leadership truly makes a difference. that was american leadership returning to the world stage acting responsibly to promote peace in the world. we have to lead. the middle east wants america to lead and what has happened here is the complacency and appeasement that's been going on the last eight year, radical islamist had grown into global jihad. isis had spread to 30 countries and al-qaeda is thriving and revitalized organization since we killed osama bin laden. why is that happening? because i believe, america stepped away from leadership role from the world and others are far too complacent out there. we have an american leader that will stand up against iranian
6:40 am
threat in the middle east which is more of a strategic. dagen: we had that bomb going off in afghanistan. what do you think are concrete next steps that we take in those countries to combat the islamic state? >> first of all, we have to finish what we are doing in iraq and militarily that will eventually end but politically there's huge challenges there. if there's not political unity among the sunni, shiites and the kurds after isis is defeated there, there's a chance that civil war will break out in iraq and that would be failure. i'm hoping now that this administration is going to do what the previous did not do and that is help the iraqi achieve political unity.
6:41 am
we should have crushed crisis and syria a while ago, the strategy that we are using now with the syrian kurds, i think it's not the best strategy because syrian kurds are not going to be able to occupy syrian-arab lands, i think we should have brought in the regional arabs take down the threat as i said sometime ago and that will eventually stop but now what -- what i think the president has done and -- and for the first president ever to do it is to bring these countries together to fight this common enemy and to undermine its ideology. you have to hold the horrific behavior accountable, you kill them where they are in safe havens but you also have to get the young people to reject this draw towards that ideology. dagen: president trump's, general, will be delivered to the -- on capitol hill at 8:00 this morning and among proposals the plan seeks to
6:42 am
boost defense spending and highlighting why the u.s. military needs to combat, general, your thoughts? >> serious jeopardy in terms of its military prepared andness and readiness particularly to fight a conventional war and the technology gap has closed on us and in some cases our adversaries are outpacing in terms of technology. that has never happened before post world war ii. the money in this budget actually is inadequate. we need to go a lot further than what this budget is promoting us to go or we are not going to be able to close the technology gap and have the capability advantage that we've had for a number of years. we have a long way to go, dagen. dagen: general, great to see you, thank you so much for joining us on this horrific day. general jack keane. we are following president trump's movements in israel, he will be speaking at the israel
6:43 am
museum next hour and he is expected to talk about the manchester bombing in that speech. his comments could be similar to what we heard when he was in bethlehem with mahmoud abbas. i won't call them monsters because that's what they would like to be called. 22 dead, many children, 59 injured, we will be covering all of the developments out of england and the middle east and in israel. we will be right back. the ultrasound that can see inside patients, can also detect early signs of corrosion at our refineries. high-tech military cameras that see through walls, can inspect our pipelines to prevent leaks. remote-controlled aircraft, can help us identify potential problems and stop them in their tracks. at bp, safety is never being satisfied.
6:44 am
and always working to be better. on mattress firmness? fortunately there's a bed where you both get what you want every night. enter sleep number and the semi-annual sale going on now. sleepiq technology tells you how well you slept and what adjustments you can make. she likes the bed soft. he's more hardcore. so your sleep goes from good to great to wow! only at a sleep number store. oh, and right now it's our lowest price ever on our temperature balancing i8 bed. save $700. go to for a store near you. bburning of diabetic nerve pain these feet... kicked off a lot of high school games... ...built a life for my family... ...and liked to help others in need.
6:45 am
but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica. nerve damage from diabetes causes diabetic nerve pain. lyrica is fda approved to treat this pain. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs, and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. now i have less diabetic nerve pain. and it's great to help others get back on their feet. ask your doctor about lyrica. if you're eligible, you could pay as little as $25 dollars a month.
6:46 am
dagen: president trump maybe overseas but the first capital budget lands request for fiscal 2018 calling for sweeping cuts to social safety net programs and medicaid. increasing spending for border security and infrastructure. all told the plan titled the new
6:47 am
foundation for american greatness includes a total of $3.6 trillion in cut in hopes of reaching a balanced budget within a decade. although the plan faces rough road ahead and some republicans are declaring it dead on arrival. joining us now the president of a committee for are you responsible federal budget, mya, what do you make of this budget? >> well, it's a very aggressive budget in a number of yeahs. first it lays out the fiscal goal of reaching balance within a decade. given huge our fiscal challenges are that's aggressive goal and i commend the president and the white house for laying out something they want to achieve. however, the way that they get there doesn't seem credible for a couple of reasons. the budget leaves out the biggest areas of what's it's going to take to get that budget to balance, first off, it doesn't do anything on our major entitlement programs, social security and medicare which must be reformed in order to preserve them and help people who depend
6:48 am
on the program and the second big missing area of the whole budget is their entire tax reform just isn't really acknowledged in the budget and there's some hand waving, we will get onto that but not part of the budget story. they do have a significant cut in welfare, a lot of the saving proposals would be controversial but the kind of things we need to be talking about to bring savings downment finally, the piece of the budget that i worry about the most, their assumptions about how fast they can grow the economy don't square with what economists are paying and we are going to pay for over a lot of the imbalance that is are underlying the budget overall. jon: i want to talk to the tax plan that you mentioned, the president has layed out tax plans corporate rates 15% and individual rates much lower.
6:49 am
this budget, the numbers that are in there have tax revenues growing above the baseline even though tax rates are coming down, how does that add up to you -- can you tax cut rates the way the president he wants to do and grow revenue as much as the budget says lit grow? >> yeah, a great point with the assumption that they show in the budget are that revenues would be higher because the economy would be larger and so that -- you would bring in more revenue as a result: but so far the way the house has offered no details to back up the portion or the tax reform plan that would actually help generate the revenues, what they have done, you call it a tax plan, more than a one-pager, bullets that still need to be filled in, it's talking about the things that are on the desirable tax reform, they want to do -- there are a lot of things that they want to preserve on the tax code, a lot
6:50 am
of tax break that is they want to protect. , but what they didn't identify, how much of the base will they actually broaden, how much existing $1.6 trillion in tax breaks per year will they be willing to get rid of so that the big tax reform plan doesn't add to the debt. when you only talk about the easy parts, when you talk about the goodies, ones start to wonder are you going to fill that in so it doesn't explode the debt. we have no more information after seeing this budget than we have when we got that one-pager on tax reform. still a lot of details unexplained. dagen: maya, great analysis, so much breaking news. >> world leaders speak out against deadly explosion in manchester, england. their responses, next.

7:01 am
gains on the markets yet. in europe markets edging higher just a bit, perhaps investors have become accustomed to these attacks over and over again. this was the second attack in england so far this year after that attack in london with a terrorist using a vehicle there. in asia overnight, we had mixed markets with the markets in japan and shanghai moving lower. here at home president trump's budget heads to capitol hill, proposed plans to cut to disability programs, medicaid and food stamps, we will take a closer look at that. joining me this morning political analyst kristin haglund, jon hilsenrath and fbi task force member rogers. police now confirming that they have arrested 23-year-old man in
7:02 am
south manchester in connection with last night's bombing, there were 22 people killed including children. the suspected suicide bomber also killed tat manchester arena in the uk. the blast happened at 10:35 p.m. local time, 5:35 east coast time in a public space that was near the box office following an ariana grande concert. president trump commenting this morning on an incident during first trip overseas. blake berman is in jerusalem with the very latest, good morning, blake. blake: dagen, good afternoon, to you here from jerusalem, it is 2:00 o'clock in the afternoon at this point. president trump has been up for several hours now. the white house tells us that he has been continually been briefed on the attack by his homeland security team, the attack in manchester and they also tell us that he has spoken with the british prime minister theresa may. the president's first stop a few hours ago earlier this morningtous bethlehem where he met with palestinian leader
7:03 am
mahmoud abbas and he had this new name for the terrorists. >> so many young beautiful innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life. i won't call them monsters because they would like that term. they would think that's a great name. i will call them from now on losers. blake: dagen, the president's second stop on this day israel's largest holocaust memorial. he and the first lady were joined there by prime minister netanyahu and his wife. now the president is headed over here to the israel museum in jerusalem and expect today give final speech before heading off
7:04 am
to rome later today. we are told by the white house that he will talk about the manchester attack during this speech. dagen, in that first speech of note today that the president delivered, the words evil losers and losers were not the president going off script. those were a part of the prepared remarks put forth by the white house on this day. we expect similar language to that in just a moment's time when the president speaks here at the israel museum. dagen, back to you. dagen: blake, the optics of the words out of president trump as he's sitting on the stage with mahmoud abbas, paid the relative of terrorists who were killed committing acts of terror and for him to stand on that stage and speak as strongly as he did was very moving. blake: and this back to the president's first trip, really, he didn't go to canada or méxico to talk about trade or immigration, instead he came to the middle east, saudi arabia
7:05 am
first, israel second, then going to meet with the palestinian leader mahmoud abbas focus on terrorism this weekend that leaders need to drive them out he kept on saying and those were the same words that the terrorists driven out that he spoke of with mahmoud abbas sitting feet away in bethlehem. dagen: we are expecting remarks from president trump in jerusalem moments from now. extended remarks before he and the first lady and his team leave for rome where he will meet with pope francis. joining me now as former boston police commissioner, ed davis, so good to see you, you were in charge during 2013 boston marathon bombing, the device in this incident used nuts, bolts and nails just like the one in boston, i want to get your reaction to this manchester england attack.
7:06 am
>> well, the scenes, the photos that were coming from the incident were early familiar. clearly someone has used explosive device to kill people. they targeted children in this particular case. this is a particularly troubling attack. i know that the authorities in the uk as we speak, they are running down the coconspirators here. dagen: steve rogers is here and he has a question for you. >> steve. >> what do you suppose we in law enforcement are going to be -- what are we going to have to do in the future? we certainly have to tighten security but what's your view on what we really need to do with regard to surveillance, human intelligence and the collection and gathering of intelligence as we move forward? >> well, that's a great point.
7:07 am
we are going to have to increase our systems and drill down into the people that we know are involved in this and -- and do more intense surveillance of them. when they are attacking children like this, we really have to push that end of it. you know, one of the problems here that we've identified is no matter where you put the security perimeter, there's going to be a line that forms and when that line forms it's subject to attack. what kind of tactics can we put in place, i was in policing right now, i'd have a special team that would go to wherever that line is including undercover officers and uniform offered so there would be a heavy presence, wherever that line is along the line and people specially trained to identify someone who may be coming in because when our intelligence fails, and some of the plots are sophisticated and only involve one or two people,
7:08 am
when that fails, we need to have the last line of defense right at the potential soft target. it's a big, big problem but it's something that i think we can do better at. dagen: do we have enough police power just in the united states to be able to do that and increase policing like that? >> well, you can't cover every mall and -- and, you know, social function that occurs in the united states day after day, but you can identify the soft targets that are particularly attractive to these individuals, concerts, i think, we clear i will have to increase security at concerts now. it's going to be an expense. the numbers here have tripled and quadrupled since boston bombing. dagen: they do not allow backpacks into the arena.
7:09 am
they don't allow you to bring, say, water bottles in this arena but this attack happened out near the box office as the concert was ending and as prime minister theresa may described it the timing and location of it were geared toward maximum carnage. kristin haglund has a question for you. >> it's interesting because you talk about the expense. 4 to $5,000 to start for screeners and cost prohibited for some of the venues, i would love to get your perspective as law enforcement here, the last three major terrorist attacks on american soil were conducted by people that were radicalized in this country, so can you talk a little bit about what law enforcement across the country because i know that they are out there and fighting and looking for it, what they are doing for people who might be already in this country and watching videos online or being radicalized here? >> well, our sources have been
7:10 am
increased in communities involved. you know, we are pushing really hard to get people to cooperate with this and to identify any and quite frankly to fight drugs you have to have people from source countries to fight terrorism. that same thing applies. so understanding who our most likely threats are is a critical component of this. but i go back again to the -- to the perimeter issue and the fact that they learn from us and we learn from them. quite frankly security start to break down at the end of an event like this. it's very heavy at abeginning of an event and at the end everybody tries to get out and we don't think about a particularly dangers time. that has to change. dagen: we are moving to the concert season so might be focused on security at concerts
7:11 am
and music events and large gathering during the summer season but it always seems to be something else. in britain it was a single attacker driving a car in the middle of london earlier this year. here in the united states with omar mateen it was a nightclub in orlando, florida, so again it always seems to be even our own individual security concerns we are looking in a rear-view mirror. >> we are, as we see each and every event take place, terrorist attack take place we learn more on how we can defend ourselves, i with see now many concert that is we are going to have moving forward where there's large crowds that you're probably going see the fences like the long, long fences so people are continuously moving and they are not gathering and concentrated in a particular spot and in addition as the commissioner said you can probably see a lot of k-9 units in parking lots where people are
7:12 am
gathering, we are going to break this up so that that doesn't become a soft target that terrorists are looking for. >> it is just the next thing, we are always responding and that's why prevention is to importance and human intelligence and local law enforcement, specially we talk about fbi and cia, are local law enforcement, they are often the front line of where these communities and where potentially these and prevent these from happening. jon: you talked about k9 units, why don't we use dogs more and they could sniff out explosives and be our first line of defense? >> you're right. kristin brought up very important point. human intelligence. we need more undercover officers on the streets doing a lot of surveillance bringing the information back. dagen: more k9 units just from
7:13 am
everyday folks. >> both of those things are very important. >> the problem with the k9 unit is it can only work a limited time and then rested for a period of time o. people get the impression if they see the dog it's working all of the time. that's not the case. and so there are drawbacks to everything that we try, but the bottom line is they learn from us and we learn from them. we've learned a lot in the last 24 hours that's going to effect things as we go into the summer right now. dagen: ed, i want you to listen to this both president trump and the prime minister theresa may condemning this attack in manchester. watch this. >> so many young beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life. >> we are now know that a single terrorist detonated explosive device near one of the exits of the venue deliberately choosing
7:14 am
the time and place to cause maximum carnage and to kill and injury indiscriminantly. dagen: ed, what do you suggest americans do, is there anything individuals can do other than live in fear quite frankly? >> well, we shouldn't live in fear when you start to see terrorists targeting children it changes the equation for making the decision as to whether you're going to go to an event. so i think that we have to redouble our efforts on the law enforcement side, we have to work with the community in getting information from those communities who are affected by this but primarily everybody can be on the alert and can pay attention to suspicious activity that's occurring at an event or next door to you. they built this bomb some place, they had to assemble equipment, they had to build the explosive. this is not something that
7:15 am
happens easily. there are -- there are monitoring -- monitoring system that is we have out there that the fbi has put in place with suppliers of precursor chemicals. there's a lot that has to be done. people have to understand that this threat is real and it will be with us for a long time. dagen: to that point, people see this kind of deadly terror attack and because it involves an explosive device, an ied, designed for maximum carnage, they ask the question how could you not track this person down and particularly if other people were involved, a 23-year-old was involved, how can you not have any path toward leading authorities to this individual? they might be able to understand a lone terrorist who gets behind the wheel of a car and goes after people whether it's in the -- even in the middle of new
7:16 am
york city but in the middle of london but when -- when a bomber who is building a device like to would leave a trail, people ask the question, how come you couldn't track this individual down before 22 children are dead? >> well, i'm sure that they're going to know this individual but the fact of the matter is this, in the city of boston which is a city both the side of manchester, the fbi investigated a thousand cases, they published that number. if there are a thousand people that they've identified that are potential suspects, our laws are not set up to remove those people from society, they just -- we have a system that requires probable cause before you can arrest someone and so it's a hard jump to get from an allegation that someone is thinking about this to actually putting handcuffs on somebody and it's that area that's so difficult to do and with a
7:17 am
thousand people you just can't follow that many people around. dagen: ed, steve rogers again. >> one thing that i'm hearing from law enforcement that are not in the larger cities is the lack of training. a lot of the officers are involved in the war on terror but when you ask someone, what do you look for, what are you looking for out in the street, what do you think about that commissioner, do you think we do need more training in law enforcement, outside the larger cities to help in the intelligence gathering network? >> there's no question. the smaller towns really need more help in this area. i was just with two fbi agents from the dallas office who were involved in garland case, that's a perfect example and having one officer who got the jump on these guys because he saw an out of state plate and suspicious of the vehicle and focused on it and before they could get their
7:18 am
rise up to shoot he had already shot one of them, so ended up shooting and killing both suspects here. that intelligence process worked there. it was a tinny tidbit of information but made all the difference in a small town in the united states. that's the kind of connection that we have to have and training is vital for that. we need to increase training for officers across the country as the threat increases. dagen: ed, stay right there. i want to bring in the harvard law professor, author of dysfunction. we heard president trump in israel, we heard him using very strong words toward terrorists standing next to mahmoud abbas, he's going to be speaking at the -- at the museum in a short while. we are expecting a more extended
7:19 am
remarks from him there. what do you make of the very strong showing we have seen so far as he's standing with benjamin netanyahu and the people of israel? >> not strong enough. president trump should have looked abbas in the face and said, mr. abbas if this has been a palestinian terrorists and he had blown jewish children you would be paying a large amount of money as bonus, how dare you incentivize, reward and incite terrorism because if you pay rewards, the terrorists who are palestinians, that message is sent to terrorists in england and they expect reward, some of them expect them in heaven, some of them expect them on earth, how dare you promotor rich and claim that you're a man of peace. dagen: would any president do that, though? >> i would hope so. i would hope so. that's -- it may not be said in public but it has to be said in private. the idea that a man wants to be
7:20 am
the president of its country would pay reward to the families of terrorist, if you want to help your family, there's a way to help your family, blow up children and we will reward you and imams who say that if you blow up children you are rewarded in heaven, that cannot continue whether it's been iran or palestinian authority. jon: are you saying -- dagen: i want to point out really quickly that we are looking at the pictures from the israel museum. the first family has been seated. there you see first lady melania trump entering the room. we are waiting for president trump to step up to the podium to deliver extended remarks. jon, really quickly. jon: should the president have met with abbas in the first place? >> he should have met with him, you try to make peace, you try to make abbas to change policy. i suspect the president has had
7:21 am
conversations about that because i know that president trump is very upset about the palestinian authority's policy of paying terrorists. dagen: and we want to listen, there's prime minister benjamin netanyahu walking into the museum with president trump. you can read their body language but we would like to listen to. he's going to introduce president trump, let's listen in to prime minister netanyahu. >> ladies and gentlemen, this museum tells a story of israel, mr. president, you've just gone through a fast-pace visit to our past, our present and we worked together to fashion the future. here you can see hebrew texts from a bible that are 2,000
7:22 am
years old and you can see the coins that bear witness of more than 4,000 years of our presence in this land, you can see the synagogues we pray in during our long exile, but the story of israel is not simply the story of the past, it's the story of a nation reborn, land brought back to life, ancient language revive and exiled people that returned of jewish sovereignty restored. we have a saying, mr. president, the people of israel lives, the state of israel lives on and live as ever, a thriving democracy, powerful army and innovative free economy and a proud resilient people. mr. president, over the years, israel has had many friends but israel has never had and will never have a better friend than
7:23 am
the united states of america. [applause] >> that friendship is reflected in the overwhelming support of the american people, strong bipartisan support of the american congress and the supports of american presidents from harry truman to donald trump. [applause] >> thank you, president trump for your steadfest friendship, it's deeply appreciated. mr. president, i believe that the alliance between america and israel is more important than ever. together we must defeat those who glorify death and protect those who celebrate life. together we can defeat the
7:24 am
forces of militant islam who seek to destroy the civilized world and together we can and we must defeat the forces of terror. terrorism that delivered slaughter of innocence must be equally condemned and equally fought whether it strikes in europe, in america or in israel or for that matter anywhere else. and as you said this morning, mr. president, funding and rewarding terrorism must end. standing next to you president abbas condemned the horrific attack in manchester, well, i hope this is a change because if the attacker had been palestinian and the victims had been israeli children, the suicide bomber's family would have received a stipend, that's palestinian law. that law must be changed.
7:25 am
[applause] >> i hope that president abbas hear it is principles, the clear, strong, moral and practical principles that you enunciated today president trump, stop rewarding terrorists, stop glorifying murderers. i believe that this is the first and the crucial step towards the road to a genuine peace that israel seeks and that i believe together with you we achieve. president trump working with you, i believe we can advance durable peace between israel and arab neighbors as well as palestinians because of the common danger that the ara and israel face from iran and because of the leadership that you bring to this process. ultimately, around the world i have no doubt that freedom will defeat fear, that light will
7:26 am
vanquish darkness because that's a story of america, the nation that defeated forces of tyranny and beacon and hope of all humanity and that's a story of israel. a nation that's overcome unimagine horrors and it's the hope of the jewish people. mr. president, thank you for your historic visit, for your unbelievably moving gestures in a concentrated 36-hour period in israel. you've touched the core and the stones of our being. in the western world yesterday now in our wonderful museum, you, first wife, first lady melania trump, your family and your delegation, you've shown a
7:27 am
great commitment to israel and security, i want to thank you, mr. president for standing up for israel at the united nations and everywhere else. [applause] >> and i thank you for your unrelenting support and friendship that comes from the heart to the jewish people and the jewish state. thank you, mr. president. god bless you, god bless israel and god bless the united states ofmeria. [applause] >> thank you very much. thank you.
7:28 am
[applause] >> thank you. thank you very much. it's very nice. and thank you to prime minister netanyahu and i also want to thank sarah for hosting us last night in really a very unforgettable dinner. we had a great time and talked about a lot of very, very important things. and thank you to embassador david freedman and mrs. freedman for joining us along with a number of good friends have come from our country to yours as we reaffirm the unshakable bond between the united states of america and israel. thank you.
7:29 am
[applause] >> i would like to begin my remarks today by sending the thoughts and prayers of the entire american people to the victims of the terrorist attack in manchester. you know, you've all been watching, you've seen, just a horrible thi going on. i want to send our condolences to the many families who lost their loved ones, horrific, horrific injuries, terrible. dozens of innocent people, beautiful young children, savagely murdered in this heinous attack upon humanity. i repeat again that we must describe out the terrorists and
7:30 am
extremists from our mist and protect and defend our citizens and people of the world. [applause] >> all civilized nations must be united in this effort. this trip is focused on that goal, bringing nations together around a goal of defeating the terrorism that threatens the world and crushing the hateful ideology that drives it so hard and seems to be driving it so fast. it is a privilege to stand here in this national museum in the ancient city of jerusalem to address the israeli people and all people in the middle east who yearn for security, prosperity and peace. jerusalem is a sacred city.
7:31 am
its beauty, splendor and heritage are like in other place on earth. the ties -- [applause >> what a heritage, what a heritage. the ties of the jewish people to this holy land are ancient and eternal. [applause] >> they date back thousands of years including the reign of king david whose stars is on flag. yesterday i visited the marvel and monument to god's presence and man's perseverance.
7:32 am
i was humbled to place my hand on the wall and pray in the holy space for wisdom from god and i also visited and prayed at the church of the holey -- holy sepulchre, a site revered by christians throughout the world and honoring, remembering and mourning the 6 million jews that were murdered in the holocaust. i pledged right then and there what i pledge again today, the words never again. [applause] >> israel is a testament to the unbreakable spirit of the jewish people. from all parts of the great country, one message resounds
7:33 am
and that's the message of hope. down through the anales, the jewish people have suffered persecution, oppression and even those who have sought their destruction, but through it all they have endured and, in fact, they have thrived. i stand in awe of the accomplishments of the jewish people and i make this promise to you, my administration will always stand with israel. [applause]
7:34 am
>> thank you very much. through your hardships you have created one of the most abundant lands anywhere around the world not only rich in culture and opportunity but specially in spirit. this museum where we are gathered today tells the story of that spirit from the two holy temples to the glorious sites and we see incredible story of faith and perseverance. that faith is what inspired jews to believe in their destiny, to overcome their despair and to build here, right here a future that others dared not even to
7:35 am
dream. in israel, not only are jews to teach their children and pray to god, in the ancient land of their fathers and they love this land and they love god, but muslims, christians and people of all faiths are free to live and worship according to their conscious and so follow their dreams right here. today gathered with friends i call upon all people, jews, christians, muslims and every faith, every tribe, every creed to draw inspiration from this ancient city, to set aside our differences and overcome oppression and hatred and to give all children the freedom and hope and dignity written ou.
7:36 am
earlier this week, i spoke at a very historic summit in saudi arabia. i was hosted by king salman, very wise mannd i urged our friends in the muslim world to join us in creating stability safety and security and deeply encourage bid -- by desire and vital goals, conflict cannot continue forever. the only question is when nations will decide that they have had enough, enough bloodshed, enough killing. that historic summit represents a new opportunity for people throughout the middle east to overcome sectarian and religion divisions to extinguish the
7:37 am
fires of extremism and find common ground and shared responsibility in making the future of this region so much better than it is right now, change must come from within. it can only come from within. no mother or father wants their children to grow up in a world where terrorists roam free, school children are murdered and their loved ones are taken. no child is born with prejudice in their heart, no one should teach young boys and girls to hate and to kill, noivilized nation can tolerate the massacre of iocence with chemical weapons. my message to that summit was the same message i have for you. we must build a coalition of
7:38 am
partners who share the aim of stamping out extremists and violence and provide in our children a peaceful and hopeful future but a hopeful future for children in the middle east requires the vital role of the state of israel. [applause] >> and on behalf of the united states, we pledge to standby you and defend our shared values so that together we can defeat terrorism and create safety for all of god's children. [applause] >> israelis have experienced firsthand the hatred and terror of radical violence, israelies are murdered by terrorists
7:39 am
wielding knives and bombs. hamas and hezbollah, school children have to hear sirens and run to the bomb shelters with fear and with speed, isis targets jewish neighborhoods, synagogues and iran's leaders routinely call for israel's destruction, not with donald j. trump. believe me. [cheers and applause]
7:40 am
>> thank you. i like you too. [laughter] >> despite these challenges thriving as a southern nation and no international body should question the contributions israel makes to the region and, indeed, the world. today let us pray for that peace and for a more hopeful future across the middle east. there are those who present a false choice. they say that we must choose between supporting israel and supporting arab and muslim
7:41 am
nations in the region, that is completely wrong. all decent people want to live in peace and all humanity is threatened by the evils of terrorism. diverse nations can unit around the goal of protecting innocent life, upholding human dignity and promoting peace in the region. my administration has made substantial progress during this trip. we know for instance that both israelis and palestinians seek lives of hope for their children and we know that peace is possible if we put aside the pain and disagreements of the past and commit together to finally resolving this crisis which has dragged on for nearly half a century or more. as i have repeatedly said, i'm personally committed to helping
7:42 am
israelis and palestinians achieve a peace agreement and i had a meeting this morning with president abbas and can tell you that the palestinians are ready to reach for peace. i know you've heard it before, i am telling you, that's what i do. they are ready to reach for peace. and my meeting with my very good friend benjamin, i can tell you also that he is reaching for peace, he wants peace. he loves people, he specially love the israeli people. benjamin netanyahu wants peace. making peace, however, will not be easy, we all know that. both sides will face tough decisions but with
7:43 am
determination, compromise and the belief that peace is possible israelis and palestinians can make a deal but even as we work toward peace, we will build strength to defend our nation. the united states is firmly committed to keep iran from developing a nuclear weapon and halting their support of terrorists and militias. so we are telling you right now that iran will not have nuclear weapons. [applause]
7:44 am
>> america's security partnership with israel is stronger than ever. under my administration you see the difference, big, big, beautiful difference. [laughter] [applause] >> including the iron dome israeli defense program keeping from short-range rockets launched by hezbollah and hamas. it is my hope that some day very soon israeli children will never need to rush towards shelters again as sirens ring out loud and clear. finally the united states is
7:45 am
proud that israeli air force pilots are flying the incredible new american f-35 planes. [applause] >> there's nothing in the world like them to defend the nation and it's wonderful to see the mighty aircraft in the skies over israel recently as you celebrated the 69th anniversary of israel's independence. but even as we strengthen our partnership and practice, let us always remember our highest ideals. let us never forget that the bond between our two nations is woven together in the lives of our people and hope and dignity for every man and every woman. let us dream of a future where

jewish, muslim and christian children can grow together and live together in trust, harmony, tolerance and respect. the values that practice in israel have inspired millions and millions of people all across the world, the conviction of theodore rings through today. whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will rebound mightily and beneficially to do good of all mankind. as we stand in jerusalem, we see pilgrims of all faiths to walk in that hallowed ground, jews praised the prayers from their hearts in the stone blocks of the beautiful western wall.
7:47 am
christians pray in the pews of an ancient church. muslims answer the call to prayer at their holy sites. this city like no other place in the world reveals the longing of human hearts to know and to worship god. jerusalem stands as a reminder that life can flourish against any odds. when we look around the city so beautiful and we see people of all faiths engaged in worship and school children learning side by side and men and women lifting up the needy and forgotten, we see that god's promise of healing has brought goodness to so many lives. we see that the people of this land had the counselor to overcome the oppression and injustice of the past and to live in the freedom on this

[applause] dagen: that was president trump speaking at the israel museum. you always heard from prime minister benjamin netanyahu as
7:49 am
the president and first lady wrap up this trip. in about an hour from now the president and first lady will be departing and moving onto italy tomorrow. president trump will meet with pope francis but, again, some very strong wards. i want to bring alan with us and i i want to bring in fox news contributor, american enterprise institute senior fellow and former u.s. embassador to the united nations john bolton, embassador, good to see you, listening to the president's remarks there, particularly in the wake of the terror attack in manchester, what do you make of them? >> well, it was a very strong speech, no doubt about it. his comments about terrorism specifically with respect to israel and -- and around the world, we are also very strong. really it's -- it's so tragic to see what's happened in england
7:50 am
and to think that we are more than 15 years in attacks in the united states, these attacks are still continuing. as with almost everything in foreign policy, the words are great, the question now is what actions follow. dagen: alan, your reaction to the president's words and how he spoke directly to the people of israel. >> it's very important for the president to speak to the people of israel. israel is a democracy. you can't tell the prime minister to do anything. the prime minister has to have the support of his people, his coalition and cabinet. i thought it was extremely effective speech. particularly when president went off script and iran will not be permitted to develop nuclear, not when donald j. trump was here. it was emotional and from the heart and convincing. i think most important it will
7:51 am
make it harder for the extreme israeli to reject piece and much more support for prime minister netanyahu who is a centerrist and wants peace, peace with security to be sure but peace. and so i am now a little more optimistic that this very difficult peace process can perhaps go toward. dagen: embassador, are you optimistic because again there are strong words from the president since sunday in terms of encouraging arab nations to come together to unit against terrorism, words against the terrorists directed and calling them losers and a role show of support there for israel. what does this -- what do these words turn into in your opinion? >> well, i don't know which is why i'm not optimistic. i'm glad alan is and maybe i should be. but i have to say i've heard all of this before.
7:52 am
i heard george w. bush iran would never get nuclear weapons and yet sadly the policies in second term and continued through eight years of obama put iran on the track they are on now as north korea also progresses toward nuclear weapon. so i'm fine with the words. he could have gone another 15 minutes with the same words. it would have made me real happy. now the issue is what he's going to do to change from obama approach. his own secretary of state has certified that obama is in compliance with the nuclear deal. that's not true. the administration itself continued obama's waiver of certain economic sanctions. that was a mistake. when the actions change, then perhaps i will join alan in being more optist mystic. dagen: alan, i want to bring people up to date. there's breaking news coming from the associated press ap, islamic state group one of the members did carry out that terrorist attack in manchester
7:53 am
that killed 22 people including children and injured at least 59 others. ap reporting that islamic state group said that one of the members did carry out manchester, england attack. embassador, your reaction to that, not surprising, i suppose, given it was clearly a coordinated attack because of the device that it was. >> yeah, i think this is a good example that when they find one bomber it's a lone-wolf attack. we obviously still don't know a lot about why this attack on the day that it took place and the venue that it took place but the pattern is depressingly real. the question for american policy is what are we doing now to accelerate the destruction of the islamic state caliphate in
7:54 am
iraq and syria because that won't end the problem sadly, if you can break its headquarters area you can disrupt recruitment andloyment of terror. the sooner we do that, the better. >> one of the things we can do is unify and the united nations has been a facilitator of terrorism, palestinian has been a facilitator of terrorism and iranian has been a facilitator of terrorism. qatar has been a facilitator of terrorism. an ally of the united states. i think the one thing that the trump administration could do to change words to action would be to bring john bolton to the administration because he's a man that can turnords into action and i have known john for a long time and no one better equipped to turn these words and policy into something that's meaningful because he understands both security and
7:55 am
the need for peace. dagen: embassador, i will let you respond really quickly. embassador. >> the important, the most important point alan made is delegitimizing all forms of terrorism. >> really we need extraordinary conversations with their sake and our own sake to cut off funding and other assistance that they or their citizens are providing the terrorism. jon: i want to bring this conversation back to iran, you sounded skeptical of whether the trump administration is serious about confronting them, this trip to me looks like a real turn from the obama administration's policies towards iran. he went to saudi arabia which is an enemy of iran and then to israel which has threatened enemy of iran.
7:56 am
do you not think that this trip in and of itself signals a real shift in american policy towards iranians? >> i think rhetorically it does. obama went to saudi arabia, obama went to israel. the issue is what the bureaucracy is going to do once the white house finishes this trip and gets ba and the point i make and the point i make in the op-ed in the wall street journal this morning is that the bureaucracy is still moving in a different direction. >> i have one session and that is congress should pass a law saying it's american policy that iran will never ever conduct nuclear weapons and the united states to take any steps to prevent that. weeing weeing well said, always a pleasure, i think you have a directive from alan in terms of getting a job in the administration and our thanks to ed davis, former commission of the boston police department as well. we will have more from the

children were clearly targeted ariana grande headliner last night fan base children preteens, so this was an attack on children. pure and simple people look at that, the attacks keep happening, i mean you think of the death, in november of 2015, paris, and they think about what happened here at home, and what -- what can parents do what is law enforcement doing in the united states to perpetuator something like this from happening? >> there are a couple elements significant first off it was not done at beginning of the concert. or in the middle it was done when folks were leavingon. >> maximum carnage teresa may said. >> what they are doing changing the tempo means thinked deoperational surveillance saw what happened in types of arena 20,000 people there, and then they used the device that had basically, shra pnel affect
