support as of yet. sean spicer said he's hopeful the house will vote this week. gop leaders say they will vote when it has enough support to pass. the president blasted obamacare again. the president tweeted last night, you can't compare anything to obamacare because obamacare is dead. dems want billions to go to insurance companies to bail out donors. new healthcare plan is on its way. we'll have much lower premiums and deductibles. and republicans and critics say the new bill could cause the people that are seriously ill to lose coverage. they say states could opt out of obamacare protections and let insurers charge higher rates to sick people. president trump told cbs news that he ordered republicans to put a clause that guarantees
12:03 pm
people with existing conditions are covered. >> pre-existing conditions are in the bills. i just watched another network of yours and they said pre-existing is not covered. i said it has to be. >> the white house clarified that the republican bill will not affect people with pre-existing conditions as long as their maintain their coverage. states would need high risk pools to cover the sickest patients before insurers can set premiums based on the health of their customers. john roberts is live at the white house. >> the white house is optimistic to get the vote by the end of the week. there's another recess next week. the white house has set a target
12:04 pm
date of wednesday to get the vote. if it does pass, it will pass by a razor thin margin. gary cohn, the president's chief economic advise or says they do have the votes, but i'm told by several sources that talk like that is premature. the president very optimistic that he's going to get it done by hook or crook. he was talking with eric bowlings from the new show "the specialist" which airs at 5:00. here's what the president told eric. >> healthcare, we're going to get that passed? >> doing the best i can. the one mistake i made with the healthcare. we have one plan and it's getting better and better. people will get the greatest. they're the greatest people. we're going to have a great plan or i'm not signing it. i said from day one, the best thing i can do is let obamacare die and come in with a plan.
12:05 pm
>> saturday night, he had a big rally in pennsylvania. the president said he will be very angry with republican members of congress if they don't pass this healthcare bill. the congressional leadership is frustrated that the white house has climbed the wheel of the bus on held care and driving it forward. but after what happened earlier this spring, the president not taking any chances. he wants to make sure how members of congress know how he feels if they don't deliver. >> he's driving the bus and honking the horn. congressional leaders have a deal cut to keep the government running. >> they do but it's short of what the president initially wanted. there's no funding for the border wall. he got $1.5 billion for security at the wall and funding for planned parenthood will continue. there's some conservatives that are grumbling about this saying
12:06 pm
they didn't get a lot. the white house is saying this is all fiscal year 17 that was supposed to be under president obama. we were lucky just to get anything. want this exchange between myself and sean spicer. >> what the do you say to conservatives that feel like they didn't get a whole lot out of this spending bill. no cuts to sanctuary cities, funding for planned parenthood was maintained what do you sayh? >> the president got a lot out of the bill. especially $21 billion to help rebuild the military. it's a down payment on the border wheel and repealing and replacing obamacare. >> the president didn't get everything he wanted. he wanted $30 billion. when it comes to the wall, here it is, the white house is kicking the can down the road to the fiscal year 18 budget negotiations. that will happen in august and
12:07 pm
then we'll get up to full course in september because don't forget, the end of the fiscal year is september 31. >> president trump says he's open to meeting with the two leaders of countries that are accused of civil rights violations. north korean and philippines. >> yeah, in an interview with bloomberg, the president said he would be honored to meet with kim jong-un if the conditions were right. the president is trying diplomacy to solve this crisis and he also said he would meet with duarte from philippines. there's some that say meeting with duarte would turn a blind eye to the human rights abuses. the former governor of new hampshire said this is one of the unpalatable thing you have to do when you're president. sean spicer saying this afternoon that the president
12:08 pm
wants to enlist duarte's help in isolating north korea. >> we've got to see their provocative behavior ratcheted down quickly. clearly the conditions are not there right now. the president made it clear that if the conditions -- if the circumstances present themselves, we would be prepared to but they're not at this time. >> so there's not a meeting planned with kim, but there's an olive branch out there. and september has 30 days, not 31. i correct myself there. >> shepard: john roberts at the white house. a lot to keep straight. let's bring in our political panel.
12:09 pm
evan, christy are here. to you first, evan. are they going to get the repeal and replacement of obamacare done? >> i think they ultimately will. i don't think the votes are there for this week. there's many things that are missing from this bill to make it a truly great bill that will help low er the cost of care. it's moving the removal of state lines and allows people to buy better insurance plans because of that and missing allowing small businesses and individuals to pool together and bye cheaper insurance. we need to include tort reform. cms overall. medicare and medicaid inadvertently drives up the cost of coverage and lowers the quality because of policies on things like telemedicine, which can help to decrease wait times at hospitals and costs for every party. >> let's say that evan is right
12:10 pm
and this drives down costs and provides better care. would democrats get on board? >> i think it would be difficult for them to do so because they're hearing so much from their base right now that we don't want to go along with anything that president trump is doing. but also because it seems difficult to envision the scenario in which republicans would come up with a bill that could be palatable to democrats. when president trump said that preconditions would be covered in the bill, it seemed to indicate that he didn't know what was in the bill rather than that we should listen to him and hear that as gospel truth. i think that, again, it will be incredibly difficult for democrats to find some common ground on this. again, the bill has been so, you know, centered on taking rights away from people. for example, giving states the ability to essentially tell
12:11 pm
insurance companies, no, you don't have to give those people health insurance. so yeah. >> president trump has gotten wind of democratic opposition to all of this. listen to his take on it and also that of senate minority leader chuck schumer. >> the democrats are been obstructionists. the democrats, all they do is destruct and delay. chuck schumer is such a bad leader. >> the president -- name calling doesn't work. let's look at values and issues. i'd say the president's first 100 days have hardly been a success. he's broken promises to the working people of america, unfulfilled others. >> evan, what about it? >> shepard: the democrats mostly want to obstruct whatever he does. >> democrats, if they even hint
12:12 pm
to showing up at the table, the base talks about challenging them in a primary. like what they said and joe manchin, highly -- heidi highcamp. everybody just wants results. that's what they said in the 2016 elections. washington was dysfunctional. no side would work with the other to keep problems solved. >> is accommodation and compromise a bad thing? >> in this case, a couple things are going on. first, the left base is incredibly energized. the second thing, it's not as though donald trump has tried very hard to get democrats on
12:13 pm
board. he didn't lead with something like infrastructure where it would be very tempting for democrats to get on board. he led with the muslim ban. things on how democrats view our country as one of incluiveness. the other thing that i find laughable, the idea that democrats are obstructionists when republicans control all branches of government. we can't obstruct anything that he's doing. the only reason why things have not gotten passed is because of the dysfunction on the republican side. >> there is that matter of a 60-vote majority needed there. that does give the democrats a fair amount of power. christy, evan, thank you. >> thank you. >> shepard: at least 15 people confirmed dead after a strong of storms tore through the midwest and south. some children are still missing at this hour and there's more
12:14 pm
bad weather on the way. your forecast and a live look at the damage in one of the areas hardest hit next. we asked a group of young people when they thought they should start saving for retirement. then we asked some older people when they actually did start saving. this gap between when we should start saving and when we actually do is one of the reasons why too many of us aren't prepared for retirement. just start as early as you can. it's going to pay off in the future. if we all start saving a little more today, we'll all be better prepared tomorrow. prudential. bring your challenges.

12:26 pm
was there for the party on the tables. you can still see blood stains around the pool. it was obviously a terrifying scene. demetrius griffin attending that party said the stranger thing is just how calm the shooter appear. listen here. >> just very calm. he didn't stand up. he sat the whole time. even when he reloaded his magazine, he sat in his chair. it was very eerie. he didn't stand up, he didn't say anything. he opened fire. >> at the end of that rampage, 49-year-old peter sellers had killed one and wounded six. two remain in critical condition in the hospital. >> what are police saying about the motive? >> they're saying basically that

12:28 pm

12:30 pm
but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i asked my doctor. and he recommended eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.

>> jon: breaking news out of austin, texas. emergency responders have confirmed one has died at a string of stabbing at the university of texas campus. three others transported with serious injuries. the school has confirmed a suspect is in custody and that there's no longer a threat. no word yet on a possible motive. north korea warning its boosting force to the maximum so they can carry out a nuke last test any time, anyplace. president trump said he's not ruling out taking military action against north korea. he said we'll see. he said the air force is preparing for a new long range missile test later on this week. first, to rich edson live at the state department. rich, u.s. officials say
12:35 pm
military action is not the first choice of the trump administration? >> the secretary of state and the state department says they prefer all options but they pefer to where the u.s. would not have regime change. for now, the strategy is sanctions, implementing existing sanctions and getting other countries to do that and new sanctions against north korea. that effort begins tomorrow in the house of representatives when the house will consider a new set. these sanctions will go beyond economically what other system financial sanctions have done and confront and target slave labor. north korean slave labor that benefits the regime and north korean shipping. secretary of state rex tillerson chaired a special meeting friday. the point of that was to get
12:36 pm
u.s. allies and other partner nations to get them to come along to try to isolate north korea further. >> and the administration says china has the power to confront north korea. >> it is. when you look at the relationship there, china is their most powerful ally. what the administration is saying they need to implement sanctions north to convince north korea to move along. that's what analysts are saying and the most effective way to curb their aggression. >> i think the north koreans have seen so many sanctions imposed on them by the u.n. they're blase by now. but if china enforces them, they sit up and take notice. that would be new. >> china has responded that they don't hold the key to this issue on the north korean peninsula. with that, as for how long the administration is willing to wait this out and just use
12:37 pm
sanctions, the state department says in the coming months, they want to see a change in north korea's behavior. the secretary of state told bret baier that he would continue implementing this and the united states would wait so long as the north korean situation was manageable. this as north korea continues to develop and test nuclear weapons and missiles, jon. >> jon: rich edson. thanks. more on the long range missile test that u.s. officials say is set for wednesday of this week. jennifer griffin has more. >> it's been planned for at least six months. the u.s. air force will conduct another long range ballistic missile test wednesday. the new test of an intercontinental ballistic missile will be wednesday. the last test went 142 miles
12:38 pm
before splashing down near the marshall islands. the minuteman 3 launched wednesday by the air force will be unarmed. the new missile comes days after the last test on friday by the north koreans. in another show of force, fox news has just learned that the u.s. air force flew a pair of long range b-1 bombers from guam south of the dmz that separates north from south korea. they were escorted by south korean fighter jets, john. >> and where is the aircraft carrier, the u.s.s. carl vinson right now. >> it's interesting to note that it finally arrived off the coast of north korea this weekend as the u.s. air force gears up for another long range test
12:39 pm
wednesday, the carl vinson strike group will be in the waters off the korean peninsula in the sea of japan. vinson will continue doing training operations were the south korean navy. the new test comes days after another failed north korean missile test saturday. thank you, jennifer. >> anthony is here. he spent more than 17 years in the u.s. government as an expert on sanctions. we're talking about imposing new sanctions against north korea. congress will probably vote on that as early as this evening. north korea has been existing under sanctions for years, hasn't it? can we impose something that will get their attention? >> they have had sanctions imposed on them for years. they're clearly not working. they're not well enforced. the chinese does not enforce them to the level they need to. north korean has access to the international financial
12:40 pm
community. it would surprise people to learn that there was a network exposed, a network inside china that was exposed doing u.s. dollar transactions for north korea for six years. north korea is not the most sanctioned country in the world. so those are the common myths that we hear about north korea sanctions. nowhere near we were on iran sanctions before 2013. >> so if you were advising the president or congress as to what kind of sanctions would be effective, what would you institute? >> well, we have to go after china. it's clear the chinese companies and banks are complicit in north korean sanctions. there's networks that are working with north korea. north korea is still sending coal to china, still buying coal. some of the reports suggest. so it all goes through china. it's important to go to southeast asia and talk about sanction
12:41 pm
sanctions. the chinese won't put the pressure until their own interests are at risk. >> jon: you get the impression that kim jong-un listens to only his own council. he wants nuclear weapons. he has nuclear weapons because it will ensure the survival of his regime. can sanctions do anything to dissuade him? >> they can. i think if you're going after the revenue that kim uses for his nuclear program, his missile program and for the elite, you start to get at the stability issues that the chinese don't like and that's why they won't put the amount of pressure. but that's what this is going to take. kim jong-un needs to know their nuclear press makes them less secure, not more secure. the way to do that is to go after revenue, whether it's coal, slave labor or selling items to iran and syria.
12:42 pm
>> jon: we have the carl vinson off the coast: the air force launcheded an. cbm. is that likely to get his attention? it. >> should. it's clear that north korea knows they cannot use their nuclear weapons. otherwise his country will be annihilated. it's important these military moves show to north korea there will be retaliation for any kind of military attack, which north korean has done before. it's not the united states that has attacked north korean. it's the north korea that has attacked south korea including sinking a freighter in 2010. it's important that there's no possible military action that they can take. >> jon fbi director james comey getting ready to testify on capitol hill. one senator demanding answers
