10:00 pm
remember to friend me on facebook and follow me on twitter an instagram at judge jeanine. thanks for watching. but it was probably a candy apple. >> that's a good answer. i like candied apple and cotton candy. >> president trump making a pitch to the muslim world in his first overseas speech. it calls for unity in the fight against terrorism. i am kelly right in for harris faulkner and this is the fox report. the president delivering the strong message to leaders gathered in saudi arabia and a push to cut off funding for terrorist groups. as a front to people of all faiths saying it's not a battle between faiths but a fight between good and evil. >> will we be in different in the presence of evil?
10:01 pm
will we protect our citizens from its violent ideology? will we let its venom spread through our societies? will we let it destroy the most holy sites on earth? if we do not confront this deadly terror, we know what the future will bring. more suffering, more death and more despair. if we act, if we leave this magnificent room unified and determined to do what it takes to destroy the terror that threatens the world, then there is no limit to the great future our citizens will half. kelly: after the address, the president and first lady attended the event. john roberts is traveling with
10:02 pm
the president in saudi arabia. how did the arab world react to the speech. >> good morning. they seem to react very well. there is a lot of applause for the president and they appreciated that he was being frank but not blaming anyone the white house was very happy they got the commitment from the arab nations and other muslim nations to try to go after the financing for terrorism. jared kushner who is one of the chief advisers issued a statement saying the president asked us to plan a trip that would help unite the world against intolerance and terrorism and we have made great progress toward that goal in saudi arabia. he was portraying this idea that the united states to the arab and muslim worlds should be united in common purpose against the common enemy but at the same time saying the arab world and muslim nations in general have to step up to the plate if this fight is to be one.
10:03 pm
>> america is repaired to stand with you in pursuit of shared interests and common security. the nations of the middle east cannot wait for american power to crush this enemy for them. the nations of the middle east will have to decide what kind of future they want for themselves for their country, and frankly for their families and for their children. >> the senior administration official briefing us this evening said they are very happy with the roof spots they got from saudi arabia saying many of the nations in this part of the world are ready for a new relationship with the united states. >> the president also took aim at iran. what did he have to say about that nation. >> this was a point on which the nations in the arab world were very happy. the senior administration official told us and emboldened
10:04 pm
iran has really united the arab world in ways they haven't seen before. the fact that the president singled out iran, which many countries in the world believe is an existential threat to their nations are really appreciating the fact that they now have a president who recognizes that threat. listen to what the president said about iran in his speech this afternoon. >> until the iranian regime is willing to be a partner for peace, all nations must work together to isolate, deny it. funding for terrorism cannot do it. pray for the day when the iranian people have the just and righteous government they so richly deserve. >> iran is looking at the summit saying wow, the arab world seems to be ganging up on us. it brought that response from the foreign minister of iran
10:05 pm
saying that trump in the united states should be more worried about saudi arabia than iran trying to remind people that nine of the 15 hijackers came from saudi arabia in the 911 attacks. trump is not listening to that. he has a very strong relationship with king solomon. >> many were struck by what he had to say but many say they brought this upon themselves. tell us more about the global anti- terror centered the president helped open up. >> it's a brand-new center in an old hotel. it's officially termed the global center for combating extremist ideology. very high-tech looking place with big screens and computer screens and lots of places for people to sit at those screens. what this will do is monitor social media and other digital platforms to try to identify
10:06 pm
hotbeds of extremism and then through counter action and law-enforcement, try to stop it before it gets out. try to change the way people are thinking in saudi arabia and the broader arab world about extremist ideology and supporting what they believe really are the roots of terrorism. >> it's an ambitious plan. john roberts reporting. thank you. >> the next stop on the president's schedule, israel, the president is set to fly in monday for a two-day visit. the second leg of the presidents to her comes amid growing questions about how president trump plans to achieve his stated goal of negotiating peace between israelis and palestinians. no easy task but they are here to report from jerusalem and
10:07 pm
bring us up-to-date. >> it is a quick but packed trip to the holy land for president trump who will visit several important religious sites including the church of the holy secular and the wall. >> this trip is about laying the foundation for the ultimate deal. he will press benjamin netanyahu to renew peace negotiations. there are mounting questions about what specific steps president trump is hoping to see from both sides. does he want immediate, direct talks or smaller confidence building steps first? sunday evening israel's cabinet met and approved a series of economic incentives for the palestinians, a move seen as a positive step, but also prime minister netanyahu said jerusalem is and always will be the capital of israel.
10:08 pm
when president trump was elected, israelis, particularly the governing right wing were excited, but some are raising questions about president trump. many in benjamin netanyahu's party are opposed. they believe president trump would immediately move the u.s. in busy from tel aviv to jerusalem as promised during the campaign, but the white house has said it will not move the embassy now. >> these moves have angered some politicians in the israeli government making an already difficult process even more difficult. kelly: as the president forges ahead with his first major diplomatic test, rex tillerson is acknowledging the learning curve that comes with it. >> the president himself has said he has learned a lot on this trip and he has learned a lot about the people and their culture.
10:09 pm
i think this is a really important process in terms of how we move forward with this relationship between the muslim world and the non-muslim world. >> let's bring in stuart holiday. former u.s. ambassador for special political affairs and ceo of the meridian international center. thank you for joining us. the heart and the birthplace of islam. what's your reaction. >> i think he's off to a good start. of course in saudi arabia you will have a very well orchestrated, very controlled environment which i think works well for him. he was able to announce major military and economic package and he got a warm reception which of course he wants, but obviously, moving from saudi arabia to israel will be complicated, and the very fact that he's going from saudi arabia to israel as his next stop is interesting and sort of unprecedented. i think it will get a little more complicated underscoring
10:10 pm
his commitment to the rocksolid alliance with israel and the potential pitfalls that could be awaiting. >> before we go deeper into israel, go back to something that king solomon said prior to president trump addressing the crowd or the leaders of the arab world. he wanted to say this, we see today that some presumed muslim seek to present a distorted religion and he went on to say, we say the most important goal of islam is preserving life, not causing the murder of life which is paramount to peace. he went on to say that, but how should the western worldview that since the view of the muslim world from president trump, when he was candidate trump was that muslims hate
10:11 pm
americans. >> i think when you look at where tears come from and what the threat has been, it has been from muslim majority countries for the most part, and you have a very clear fact pattern that you can't deny. that said, it would be impossible to fight islamic extremism or crisis without the support and help of countries in the arab world, and i think if you heard king solomon's words, those were quite extraordinary coming from a saudi leader. the question is in saudi arabia and other countries, can they do enough to prevent young people in their countries who may be disaffected for some reason, may not see a path forward from being attracted to that kind of activity and that will be challenging before you raise a very important component of that because the president realizes that saudi arabia, while it is the birthplace of islam, it's also the birthplace of extreme
10:12 pm
islam and those that teach an inflamed view of the western world and a lot of young people are affected by that. the president is addressing that when he said young muslim boys and girls should be able to grow up free from fear, safe from violence and innocent. that means some change has to change within the religious elite. >> absolutely. unlike catholicism or other religions, nobody has the voice, the single voice for islam. indonesia is the largest muslim country in the world. it's not an arab country. what you're dealing with is how do you get enough voices coming forward, particularly as it relates to the schools and the mosques. i think the financing piece will be key. what the issue has been is that it may not be the saudi government, but it may be people within those countries who are allowing funds to go to these radical centers. >> i want to know about moving forward to israel, meeting with
10:13 pm
benjamin netanyahu and the other leaders, some of those conservative israelis are upset with the president because of what happened with his dialogue with serge, the foreign minister of russia. >> i don't think that will be a particularly major issue. there has been a history of intelligence cooperation and some competition between the united states and israel, but i think what you'll really be looking for is anything to do with the potential settlement with the palestinians, the hard-line has been drawn by the prime minister on jerusalem. i think you'll hear very strong words on iran which actually unifies the arab states and israel, but it will be very interesting to see how this plays out, particularly president trump's visit in bethlehem. kelly: such a delicate dance i head for the president of the united states.
10:14 pm
>> thank you. kelly: the white house confirmed a new provocation from north korea. the details on the latest weapons test and whether the timing has anything to do with the presidents trip overseas. plus, students at one commencement ceremony turning their backs on the vice president of the united states. the details on the graduatio i wanted to know who i am and where i came from. i did my ancestrydna and i couldn't wait to get my pie chart. the most shocking result was that i'm 26% native american. i had no idea. just to know this is what i'm made of, this is where my ancestors came from. and i absolutely want to know more about my native american heritage. it's opened up a whole new world for me. discover the story only your dna can tell. order your kit now at on mattress firmness? fortunately there's a bed where you both get what you want every night.

10:18 pm
is still in the early stages of applying economic and diplomatic pressure against the reclusive regime, but today's test is disturbing. >> the ongoing testing is disappointing, it's disturbing and we asked that they cease that because until they seize that testing, clearly they have not changed their view. i think we are early into the game of putting pressure on them and one could also interpret that perhaps they are just acting out in response to the pressure that i believe they are beginning to feel. >> they reportedly launched a medium-range ballistic missile around 9:59 p.m. hawaii time. the u.s. pacific command said the missile launch was tracked until it's splashdown into the sea of japan. this comes a week after one of north korea's most successful test to date. last sunday the communist regime launched a missile, officials said traveled 1245 miles above
10:19 pm
the surface of the earth. nasa's international space station is about 240 miles above the earth. that means north korea's missile traveled so high it theoretically passed the space station by 1000 miles. they say the missile launch today had us shorter range than the one tested last week. military officials say a traveled about 300 miles. it did not pose a direct threat to north america. this is the 11th test carried out by north korea this year. last year they tested seven in the same timeframe. kelly: thank you. mike pence is back in his home state of indiana delivering an address at notre dame's commencement ceremony. why his return might not be as welcoming as hoped. >> today is a day of celebration

10:24 pm
my charge to all of you is simply this, be exceptional from this day forward. >> mike joins us live from south bend indiana. some social media is portraying this as a massive walk out. is that accurate? >> most of the graduates were interested in their big day. to give you an idea there were about 2100 graduates on the field. reporters are ballpark in the number of graduates who walked off around 100. all the vice president did to it dress it or recognize it was to complement notre dame to be the kind of university that welcomes diverse viewpoints. >> the increasing tolerance and suppression of the time honored free expression on our campus jeopardizes the liberty of every american. this should not, and must not be met with silence. >> and organizer of the

demonstration is a student former member of the student government and in lgbt activis activists. they said they were protesting his policy on gay rights and immigration and healthcare. it was never meant to disrupt or shut down his speech. kelly: what to the other students think. >> one graduate said there was never really a lot of buzz on campus about this demonstration. you heard most of it from people off campus and alumni, people trying to inject their politics into this graduation. most of the graduates were just concerned about their big day. >> this is our graduation. it's supposed to be about us. it's not supposed to be a super political thing. we just want to enjoy our graduation and not get all wrapped up in this.
10:26 pm
>> following commencement, some of the graduate said the walkout wasn't too disruptive, it didn't prevent people from hearing the vice president who wanted to hear him so they respected the right to protest. >> the vice president handled it with grace and dignity, befitting his office. thank you. . kelly: joe biden also giving a commencement speech at colby college. he called for americans to stand up and be united despite turbulent times. >> it's time for america to get up. it's time to regain our sense of unity and purpose. it's time for us to start realizing who in god's name we are. kelly: he told grads to get out and take risks and treat others with dignity and build bonds of empathy with others. >> it's the first major diplomatic test for president trump. is he striking the right tone on terrorism? we will get reaction from the left and the right.

10:31 pm
this is the fox report. topping the news, president trump addressed muslim leaders in saudi arabia, calling for greater cooperation in the fight against terror. the president also announced a six nation council to prosecute those who finance terrorism. first lady melania trumpet joining the president for the opening of the global center for combating extremist ideology. the project will function as a giant nerve hub for tracking activity online. meanwhile, capitol hill reacted to the announcement that james comey will testify publicly before the senate intelligence committee. this as the white house pushes back on a flurry of reports on whether the president tried to interfere with comay's investigation on russia. for more on all of this we go to garrett in washington. >> we understand at least one lawmaker will have a chance to speak to james comey before his hearing. >> earlier this week jason jacobs said he had been having a
10:32 pm
hard time tracking james comey down because he had apparently changed his phone number after he was fired. today he said they have now been able to touch base and are expected to have a conversation sometime tomorrow. it will be the first time they've spoken since he was dismissed and one of the first conversations between comay and lawmakers. on abc this week, he said one of the things he plans to ask about is the personal memos he wrote following his meetings with the president, including one in which he was allegedly asked to drop the fbi investigation into former national security adviser michael flynn. >> it's important to remember nobody has seen these documents. even the reporter at the new york times has not seen these documents. there has been an awful lot written and said, but i don't even know the department of justice has them. i don't know where they reside or if there are documents, but we are certainly pursuing them.
10:33 pm
those memos are a key point of interest for a number of committees investigating russia. we could learn more about their status and whereabouts tomorrow. kelly: a lot of curiosity. the white house is pushing back on reports that the president fired comay over the rush investigation. >> that's right. a report by the new york times suggested trump told russian officials he fired comay to relieve political pressure facing the rest of investigation. they have said the president comments were unfairly misinterpreted in an effort to undermine his agenda. on "face the nation", diane feinstein said that report combined with accusations that the president asked james comey to drop the michael flynn investigation raises concern. >> did he ask him to drop it
10:34 pm
because he was worried what the investigation might conclude? if so that borders on a serious charge. we need to flesh that out and see what the responses. it's got to come from director comey himself. >> as we've reported, there are questions about whether or not robert muller will allow comay to testify given that his conversations with the president could be a part of the fbi's investigation as well. at this point, that hasn't happened. until it does, james comey is expected to have his hearing after memorial day. kelly: garrett, thank you. let's bring in evan, republican strategists and author of gop gps. also the director of research at and a fox news contributor. thank you both for joining us. we have a lot to unpack, not
10:35 pm
just about james comey but also about the president's trip. let's begin with james comey. what do you think he will be talking about when he goes before the senate intelligence committee. >> i think you will be talking about the memos, the notes he took in what he did with those notes and what his conversations with the president were. there has been a leak, a steady flow of lease about how uncomfortable james comey was. he even tried to hide in the curtains when the president was coming to visit the fbi and you saw that awkward, please don't hug me moment so he would continue to appear impartial. also, imagine he will share with the investigation is without being inappropriate. he knows the investigation is now in safe hands. kelly: evan, what are they saying about the james comey situation and the russian investigation?
10:36 pm
are the republicans saying it's a bunch of baloney. >> they are. no one has seen the memo from james comey. when you look at what has happened with the media and how they reported on it, whoever it was that gave them memo, they read it orally over the phone to reporters and other networks. kelly: those infamous, anonymous sources, leaks, leaks, leaks, should the americans be concernd about them coming from the white house. >> they should be concerned and grateful. it was leaks that showed up that the obama administration was spying on fox and targeting conservative groups and paying ransom. americans should be concerned about how they are playing right into director comay's hand.
10:37 pm
they use the memo to get congress to call him in public to testify and verify their existence. >> and we also add that republicans, specifically congressional republicans love to leaks when it was wiki leaks. they thought it was the latest thing out there. now it's things they don't want to talk about the possible collusion between trump campaign and russia, suddenly leaks and unmasking is the problem. you need to talk about both issue. >> before i wrap up this issue, the special counsel, robert muller, what do you anticipate coming from him? he's widely known throughout washington in america, some that people really applaud from both sides of the aisle. what you think he has to do to bring this to a close. it might take years. >> it could take years. i think we will just get silence. there will be footage of him going to work everyday. when we hear something from him it will be very simple, i recommend john smith to be prosecuted or we have found no finding and no wrongdoing.
10:38 pm
the special counsel can't released to the public the detailed findings, even if everyone is innocent and nothing bad happened. the only person who could do that as the attorney general but in this case will be deputy general assistant rosenstein. kelly: let's move on. it's president trump's first diplomatic trip overseas and a lot of people are applauding what happened in the saudi kingdom. fifty arab leaders showed up as well as leaders from africa. they talked about terrorism. he didn't talk about human rights and he's receiving some criticism at home for not addressing human rights but he said we have to deal with the issue of terrorism. rex tillerson said he believes the first must deal with the security issue and then they can start talking about human rights. what say you.
10:39 pm
>> i think he showed up in a way he had to. he read from the paper, i think he did well, there are a lot of people who are strong critics of him who said you would've heard this from any democrat or republican. the interesting points were that he didn't use radical islamic extremism. the white house is saying he was tired. this was someone who railed on the campaign trail that hillary clinton and president obama invited terrorism into our lives because they wouldn't say the word them and he didn't. this is about an arms deal and also a $100 million that went to the ivanka women endowment fund. >> there's also a center to analyze what's going on with regard too. >> which i think is a great thing. >> it's great that the saudi government funded and is producing it themselves. what do the trump supporters say because the president actually did a complete turnaround.
10:40 pm
here they are saying president trump instead of candidate trump. he's no longer saying muslim or islam hates america, he sang we must reach out to end this vicious practice of terrorism. >> so far this trip has been very successful for president trump. he's gotten the cooperation center where we can track terrorism and the financing of terrorism. that's a very important part. at the same time he did get the arms deal and we are also seeing that the saudi's are coming to the u.s. because they want us to invest in saudi arabia and that is good for saudi arabia and the united states. >> they are working with the saudi's in terms of implementing defense contracts. kelly: now he goes to israel. >> it's going to be really tou tough. kelly: it will be a dance. what do you suspect netanyahu will do to help the president solidify moving forward with israel and what about peace in palestine.
10:41 pm
>> i think benjamin netanyahu will be gracious in public and there will be a lot of shaking hands and hugging but behind the scenes there will be conversation about this arms deal which is worrying for israel and also whether president trump turned over information to the russians when they were hanging in the oval. >> i think she is 100% right but i think netanyahu will do his best to work with president trump and show that strength and unity. >> the important part is finding common ground just like he did in saudi arabia. >> we need israel more than we need saudi arabia. they are our people. kelly: thank you very much. it's good to have your insight. it is probably the president's favorite form of communication.
10:42 pm
it's no surprise he would host a twitter form in saudi arabia but there was a slight change in plan. bret bear open to the forum, making the announcement that president trump would not be able to attend. first daughter and senior white house advisor ivanka trump spoke to the crowd instead. she shared her appreciation for the region's efforts in combating extremism and promoting peace. a video goes viral on social media of an encounter before between a transit officer and passenger. by the man behind the video said he hopes it will bike more than likes and shares. plus this. can you believe it, it's the end of an era, ringling brothers and barnum & bailey calling it quits after a century. a look at their final performance before folding the brian, i just need to know if the customer app will be live monday.

10:46 pm
kelly: we like to check in with our fox affiliates around the country. we go to minnesota where of viral video captured on a metro train is barking an internal investigation and a conversation on immigration. a passenger recording of another man is asked if he is in the country legally by a transit officer. here is samuel king. >> do you have a state id? are you here legally. >> that's the point when he moved from chronicling a moment to be part of it. >> are you authorized has
10:47 pm
immigration police? >> no. >> then i would stay out of it. >> when he approached the young man, leavens morale as began recording on his cell phone. >> it didn't really think about it. we live in a time where i think it's important for people to stand up for each other. >> since he posted the video on friday, it has been viewed more than a half-million times. >> he has received calls from media outlets from across the country. >> i don't want the story to be about me. this is about a much larger issue. it's not even about the one transit officer. that's what i would like people to think about. >> the larger issue is how involved local law enforcement should be in immigration. they say the video is an example of what not to do. >> i was tremendously disappointed to see this. this is something that we have worked to encourage every department around the state to
10:48 pm
have policies to specifically ban this kind of thing because it destroys the relationship between police and the immigrant communities they serve. >> if you look around his art studio, you quick see that he encourages action in the face of justice. he is glad his quick thinking is leading metro transit to investigate it. >> they wouldn't be responsible to do anything else than looking into it. what should, that, i don't know except that i would hope for a wider conversation. >> that was samuel king. metro transit releasing a statement saying officers have not been trained or empowered to act as federal immigration authorities. the big top is coming down as ringling brother and barnum & bailey says goodbye. the final performance coming
