tv Happening Now FOX News June 2, 2017 8:00am-9:01am PDT
>> shannon: i feel like it's going to happen. >> bill: have an awesome weekend. have a great weekend at home, everybody. "happening now" starts right no now. >> with that, president trump taking his case to the highest court in the land, now asking the supreme court to reverse ruling by two lower courts that blocked his temporary ban on travel from six muslim majority countries. this breaking on friday. we made it, it is a week and that's upon us. two more hours of news coming up. welcome to "happening now." i'm a linden for jon scott. >> heather: i'm heather childers and for jenna lee. the news of the administration, it comes on the heels of president trump's decision to back out of the paris kleiman accord and what many saw as a
controversial decision. demonstration stands behind it saying the president is fulfilling his campaign promise to put america first. >> this is an agreement that puts an enormous burden on american consumers and the american economy while allowing countries like india and china to virtually get off scot-free for a decade or more. the president today after listening to all sides, after listening to european leaders last week, made a decision to fulfill his word to the american people, to get out of the paris accord, but to also leave the door open to the possibility of negotiating a completely new deal or going back into the agreement on terms that put the american economy and american people first. >> heather: kevin joins us live from the white house with more. >> always nice to talk with you and lucky as well. this is another bite of the apple, at least this time it's the most important bite, that
being the u.s. supreme court and the administration once again following through on another promise that is to take its plan for a travel ban all the way to the u.s. supreme court. i want to share with the folks at home a look at the countries we are talking about, libya, sudan, syria, iran, yemen, and somalia. the order blocked refugees from those six nations for 90 days and suspended the refugee program for 120. a pair of lower courts ruled against the administration, a decision that vice president mike pence thanks is incredibly frustrating for millions of americans. >> the american people are heartened by that, but equally frustrated by decisions that courts call into question whether the president of the united states has the ability to control who comes into this
country. the ability to come into the united states of america is a privilege, not a right. >> that last sentence is what a lot of people are hanging on, to the ability to come into this country is a privilege and not right. let me share the doj statement. we have asked of the supreme court to hear this important case and are confident that president trump's executive order is well within his lawful authority to give the nation safe and protect our communities from terrorism. all this of course is the administration also continues to defiantly stand against the paris kleiman accord. as you saw yesterday and the rose garden, the president laying out his reasoning behind pulling the u.s. out of that agreement. the president's reason is simple. the deal is unfair to the u.s. and its workers. all the while propping up other economies and our expense. don't forget, be sure to join fox news for live coverage on the white house briefing which comes yours weigh around 1:30 today.
we will hear from scott pruitt. i'm sure he will get plenty of questions. >> heather: it you think? thank you, kevin. >> leland: as kevin pointed out, it's been a busy week for the white house and not all of it had to do with the climate deal or russia. "the wall street journal" printing a piece today on news you didn't hear. including the article about the decision by ryan zinke. in a move that could revive the economy. on a related note, the dakota access pipeline is now operational and transporting oil. the fish and wildlife service is taking action to stop the obama administration. a decision that was done over the protest of state officials. wilbur ross said he would open to completing the transatlantic trade and investment partnership
being negotiated with the e.u. and top senate republicans said they are confident they can produce a new health care bill by the end of july. let's bring in the u.s. news editor of that paper, glenn hall of "the wall street journal" ." nice to see you, sir. happy friday to you. pick up the front page of "the wall street journal" as i do every day. in a way, she's calling her own paper out. >> the point she was trying to make in her opinion piece was largely that a lot of the news that happens gets overtaken by other events, sometimes the president's own tweets that redirect. today's front page, there's no question, pulling out of the paris kleiman accord is top news of the day and you'll see that out there. >> leland: is there simply more news than there used to be or do we just know about more news? it seems like your job has gotten harder. >> this president keeps is very
busy in the social media, the speed at which information is being shared around the globe also has enhanced what we know about what's happening in other parts of the world. also the communication of information is faster. we are moving at a fast pace, but i think the core job that we do is try to filter that to some degree and present the most important news of the day for our readers. >> leland: back to that article, the result is a surreal situation and may keep going up. the hysterical press coverage of trumped the man is utterly divorced from the actions he administers and takes or the progress and makes. it sort of begs the question, which comes first? the chicken or the egg for this president who loves the press? >> that is a challenge. we hear from a lot of people in the g.o.p. that they wish the
president would use this power, especially his twitter power to keep the message on his agenda and not allow it to be shifted over to things like covfefe or things like who is investigating home. >> leland: so often -- fair to say, they are not equal in their ability to stay on message. >> i think president obama was a very disciplined approach to how he communicated. this president has been fairly accessible, also fairly visible to the people. he likes to speak directly to the american people, not only standing in front of the rose garden. it's a different approach. >> leland: we've seen as of late, more of a rollout of messaging. you have scott pruitt, the epa had there at the briefing today.
we see wilbur ross at the briefing, we've now seen more of the surrogates going out, not necessarily just on the political issues, but also on policy issues. to that point, opening up drilling in alaska. ryan zinke on american's this morning. >> i look at it as america is much better for energy dominant. we have the resources, let's get to it. nobody is better at oil and gas and energy, all of the above than the united states. we do it better than anybody and our environment is standard in the world. >> leland: there is an irony here that the left would be going crazy about that and not
have fertile ground to talk about it. instead, the administration pulls out of the paris accord, that's front page news. it changed decades of policy. >> the whole thing about the paris accord was handled pretty well if you look at it the way the president and his team were outcome of the surrogates were out and even today, the president on his twitter handle was really weak treating a lot of people who are praising his decision to pull out. and one day, we've seen some pretty strong disciplined to get their message out and stay on topic. it'll be interesting to see if that's a new trend. >> leland: glenn, you have a vacation coming up. hope you can take a break from the front page. safe travels. >> heather: no brakes on the news, it's nonstop with this administration. we have new information for you on the state of the economy.
job growth seems to be stalling, including just 138,000 jobs in the month of may. on the bright side, the unemployment rate is still at 4.3% from 4.4%. that's the lowest level in 16 years. some analysts say jobs are down because people stop looking for work. >> leland: one may come back, and the wake of the pentagon's pentagon's -- secretary jim mattis on the road making an announcement today about how the u.s. will proceed with its agents of specific strategy. we'll talk to dick cheney about this and the message it sends to north korea. plus, new developments in the casino attack after a gunman opens fire, killing dozens, but get this. none of them were shot. will explain only come back.
>> heather: defense secretary jim mattis announcing today that the u.s. will stay committed to its policy toward asia. he will discuss north korea and china. one u.s. officials traveling with mattis is speaking. >> there's a lot of concern in the region over the rising nort. there is concern china's rise in the assertive behavior. >> heather: let's bring in bob wells, former national security advisor to vice president dick cheney. thanks for joining us. when you listen to a wide array
of experts, they say north korea will likely be able to strike the american homeland with a nuclear weapon before the end of president trump's first term. that's scary stuff. how do we stop them? >> it's very serious and i think the way you stop it is exactly what we're doing with the regard to the end of the strategic pause. the visit now with secretary mattis helps to reassure all the allies. we have five key alliances there which will be at the actual conference. their intent and what we are trying to do with the sanctions piece of it. we need to continue a steady string with regard to the reaction to north korea. >> heather: let's speak more about those sanctions. today the u.s. security council is voting on the u.s. and chinese proposal to blacklist more north korean individuals and entities and also some more
sanctions, but it appears that china is not complying with the sanctions that are already in place. here's what u.s. ambassador to the united nations, nikki haley had to say. >> at this point, i do believe, and i think administers and believes that china is doing back channel networking with north korea and a way that's getting them to try and stop the nuclear testing. >> heather: we know in the first order of 2017, the china north korea trade was up 37.4% from the same period in 2016. how can we depend on them? >> you have to depend on depend on a diplomatic effort. ambassador hailey's point with regard to back channel communications with the dpr k, it's the only real viable way to influence north korea with regard to the chinese diplomacy. i think the sanctions can be
enforced, they have been enforced with multiple violations. i think it's a long game, i think china is also with the united states as well as the bilateral diplomacy that was established in mar-a-lago. it's going to take a long time. >> heather: is something that we demonstrated two days after pyongyang fired a short range ballistic missile that went 248 miles, we launched a ground-based interceptor from vandenberg air force base in california. do you think that will do anything to show them, if you try this, we can defend ourselves? or will it make them try harder? >> i think it will make them try harder, but also make us try harder with regard to deterrence.
we have a duty to defend the homeland. it's part of the comprehensive effort. we have units of fleets that have the capability to intercept the ballistic missiles and the boost phase. we also have that midpoint which is demonstrated. the bottom line is, we need a defense strategy that we continue to develop our technology is really good. we also need that diplomatic pressure and be able to compel the north koreans to really listen. we don't want a threat to the american homeland by nuclear tipped icbm. we will defend ourselves. >> heather: what about the role of south korea and all of this? >> critically important. we have an obligation to defend south korea. as you also know, that's part of the united nations peacekeeping or the united nations on the korean peninsula. we need to be very, very keen to
the voice of south korea. as you know, a lot of the artillery that the north koreans have have decimated seoul. we have to develop a deterrent capability as well as going forward and influence the north koreans. >> heather: thank you so much for joining us. we appreciate your insight. >> thank you, heather. >> leland: coming in right now, new reaction to the president's decision to hold off on his pledge to move the u.s. embassy to tel aviv -- from tel aviv to jerusalem. what supporters and opponents are saying about his impact on the pursuit of peace in the middle east. former fbi director james comey said to testify before a senate committee for the first time since his firing. our panel weighs in on what we can expect from thursday's hearing.
karl rove on just that. >> he is going to show up and my suspicion is that he's going to say the president brought this up and i was offended by this. the fact of the matter is, if he was offended, he should have said i think that's an appropriate or he should have said to the attorney general, i think that's inappropriate. it wasn't an appropriate and say it safety isn't a list of boxes to check. it's taking the best technologies out there and adapting them to work for you. 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. and always working to be better.
the future isn't silver suits anit's right now.s, think about it. we can push buttons and make cars appear out of thin air. find love anywhere. he's cute. and buy things from, well, everywhere. how? because our phones have evolved. so isn't it time our networks did too? introducing america's largest, most reliable 4g lte combined with the most wifi hotspots. it's a new kind of network. xfinity mobile. >> leland: right now, former fbi director james comey is set to appear before the senate intelligence committee next week. he is expected to face questions in the russia investigation. heard a lot of leaks on this, nothing confirmed. kellyanne conway says comey's appearance could help set the record straight.
the >> i think that will be a very clarifying moment. i want to repeat that. his most recent testimony had to be corrected almost immediately. he was off by hundreds of thousands and has projected calculations. it's more important to have somebody testify then to have as friend and former colleagues out there. >> leland: let's bring in leslie marshall and lawrence jones. great to have you as always. leslie, ladies first on a friday. every day, but on friday as wel well. how much are liberals licking their chops at the prospect of james comey under oath? >> it not as much as you would think. i come as a liberal like to lick my chops when it comes to russia, i don't think we'll get the answers left or right because the american people want
the answers, want the truth. i think the question everyone wants the answer to is whether or not there was any collusion by the president himself. if that is asked, i don't think it will be asked in that manner, james comey is going to say, i cannot comment because there's an ongoing investigation. >> you already answer that question. james comey already answered that question. he said there is no collusion between donald trump, there is no evidence to suggest that. he's investigating the campaign when he was there, but there was nothing to hold him. that's already been discussed. >> leland: lawrence, isn't there a fear among republicans that if all of a sudden, director comey testifies as that original article said, that the president essentially asked him to back off mike flynn, at might not be a crime, we'll get to that in a minute, but it certainly doesn't look good. >> he perjured himself if he
goes on the record and says that. he testified before congress on may 3rd and said the president has never tried to use that for political purposes. i'm interested to see the former fbi director, is he going to walk that path because then he has other problems. >> leland: to your point, it's the same when the kellyanne conway made, if all of a sudden you have a discrepancy in the testimony, there is a something there. now to the heart of the matter and terms of whether or not the president said please back off mike flynn adheres karl rove. >> the president of the united states is head of the executive branch. the fbi is not independent of that authority and the president was asking, i just fired this guy, he's been humiliating me in front of the american people, can you go easy on him question like the president could have directed him to drop the investigation and unless there was underlying corruption, that is to say that the president benefited, there is no crime. >> leland: karl rove is not an attorney as far as i know, neither of you are either,
correct? we'll stick to the politics of this. it may not be illegal, but it may not look that all right. >> it really depends in what was said. we talk about what was said, the president denying what james comey is already discussed and written in a memo and james comey, the way he presents it -- >> leland: we don't know what he wrote in the memo. >> what i'm saying -- we've had a lot of speculation. the bottom line is, the president says this is a general who served his nation well, go easy on him. back off of it. it could be the difference between a crime and not crime. it does come down to, unless
there is a recording of this conversation, he said against he said. >> leland: it real quick, leslie got the first word, lawrence good the last word on this. how does the white house tried to put this behind them? >> i think they stick with the facts. even if there was obstruction of justice, why didn't comey until the attorney general or the deputy attorney general? somebody that claims to be the superhero of the fbi and brings integrity, he is going to have to answer that. if he really felt like there was obstruction of justice, why didn't he report it? he didn't until he got fired. >> leland: to that point, he has the duty if he feels that justice is being obstructed, certainly a question that he will get in many different forms. he is a lawyer, so he will have an interesting way to answer them. we are sure. leslie, lawrence, appreciate you both being here. have a great weekend.
>> heather: as you were talking, the white house did confirm that they are setting up a dedicated group to handle the russia probe. >> leland: that war room we keep hearing about. >> heather: still coming up, a deadly rampage at a casino in the philippines. terrorism is being rolled out here. what police are saying at this hour about this incident. plus president trump taking his controversial travel ban to the supreme court and what are the chances that the high court will side with the administration and reinstate the restrictions? our legal panel takes of the case. >> the ability to come into the united states of america is a privilege, not a right

the speed to welcome back. president trump taking his travel ban to the supreme court, as promised. the administration following emergency applications last night asking the high court to overturn the rulings of two lower courts. >> the american people can tell that president donald trump has no higher priority than the safety and security of people of this country. he has taken full and decisive action in asserting an executive order to pause immigration from countries that have been compromised by terrorism or don't have the systems in place that we can be confident when people apply to come here that
they don't represent a threat to our families and our communities. >> heather: linda patrick and tom, thank you for joining us. wendy, i'll start with you. this is the first time the president has tested it before the highest court. what is at the heart of the case and what do you think will happen? >> the heart of the case is context or content. in other words, they look at the four corners of the document and decide on its face, as a constitutional or should i consider then candidate trumps statements on the campaign trail to decide whether or not this national security concern as a pretext? they say it's not. these were identified as hotbeds of terror. in other words, it's on about muslims. most of the world's muslim populations remain unaffected. 880 pages were filed last night.
they have to decide do we let it roll out now and bro later? that's at the heart of what they filed last night. >> heather: tom, will candidate trumps words or should they be used against president trump's words? >> as wendy just alluded to, that's one of the criticisms that a lot of people have had of the circuit's decision. first of all, it's a long decision, but a lot of those pages were devoted to really picking apart what candidate trumps that on the campaign trail. at referenced things he said on cnn, and even quotes from several of the presidents twitter messages. a lot of people have said that's hitting below the belt. candidates running for president or any office will say outlandish things that really
have nothing to do with what the content in the four corners of this law are and what the argument is for. it should be the arguments against it. clearly, the virginia fourth circuit went there. i'm not certain the supreme court will take that same approach. >> heather: with the full court now, you have five conservatives and for liberals. do you think they will go along ideological lines? >> that's a good question. that's an essential question people are asking. it is a slam dunk. president trump, what it means is justices have to look and determine whether or not this is a constitutional order despite what candidate trumps that on the trail. an order to do that, they will be guided by the law on those lower court decisions.
>> heather: we had a statement from the justice department's thing that the president is not required to admit people from countries that sponsor or shelter terrorism until he determines that they can be properly vetted and do not pose a security risk to the united states. that makes sense. legally, are they correct? >> this is the argument that they are and that's one of the things the administration -- we are dealing with the second incarnation of this order. one of the things they did from the first order that was struck down in the second order, first of all they eliminated a rack. second of all, they spent a lot more time delineating in that order. there's a lot more than six muslim majority countries out there that aren't included in this order. it's not just merely a muslim majority or that there is been terrorism. it's been state-sponsored
terrorism. that's what the administration is trying to wrap their arguments around and get this band reinstated by the supreme court on a temporary basis so that it doesn't happen next year. i think there are certainly some strong arguments that say historically, this sort of thing is within the strict view of the president of the united states. >> heather: thank you so much for joining us. we appreciate it. hope you have a great weekend. >> leland: noteworthy that the supreme court has not always been friendly to the executive branch. president obama's administration lost about a dozen times, 9-0 at the supreme court. >> heather: with the appointment of judge neil gorsuch, we'll see if that
changes. >> leland: now this. new information coming in on a deadly attack on a casino in the philippines. ice is claiming credit, but authorities there believe it may have been a robbery gone horribly wrong. police say at least 36 people died, not from the gunshots, but from suffocation and smoke inhalation when the gunmen poured gasoline on the gambling tables and then set them on fire. this story began breaking just about 22 hours ago. where live in los angeles with more. my time now and the philippines again. hi will. >> we just learned that that doesn't appear in u.s. citizens were killed. while investigators continue to figure out what exactly led to the death of dozens of tourists and resort employees, we now know there was only one suspect, a man dressed in dark clothes carrying a gun who walked into
the resort world casino, and nary packed with tourists and started shooting and letting things on fire. >> oh, my god, you guys, i can hear gunshots. we are right behind resorts world. you can see the smoke and there is gunshots and people are shooting each other. oh god. >> nobody was shot, more than 35 people died from smoke inhalation. the windows in the casino were locked and bodies were found around the casino floor. the 70 others were injured, many surviving by breaking windows and jumping from the second floor. security guards were able to shoot the gunman before ultimately took his own life. >> our police ran upstairs and entered room 510, but it was too late because when they enter the room, the smoke was so thick,
and he burned himself which led to his death. >> authorities say he tried to steal more than $2 million in gaming chips and that's part of the reason why they don't believe it was a terror attack. the philippines has been battling isis in the southern part of the country. police believe this is a tragic robbery gone wrong. >> leland: a lot of terror problems for a long time in the philippines. will carr in los angeles. thank you. >> heather: the u.s. embassy in tel aviv will stay put for now. a step towards peace or a slap in the face with a key ally. were on the ground with the president's decision not to move the embassy to jerusalem. casper makes one perfect mattress. supportive and comfortable. premium foam layers. breathable for airflow.
john huddy in our mideast bureau just said shabbat begins in jerusalem. >> delaying, not abandoning. that's the white house's messages. president trump yesterday signed a waiver delaying the move of the u.s. embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem for 6 months saying if you have a negative impact on efforts to promote peace between israelis and palestinians. sean spicer said that president trump stands by his promise to move the embassy saying that if that move happens, but when. nonetheless, many israeli leaders are disappointed hearing the news that at least for now, the president isn't following through on his campaign promise. benjamin netanyahu's office released a statement reading in
part maintaining embassies outside the capital drives peace further away. the jewish people and the jewish state have no connection to jerusalem. palestinian authority president said it was an important step that illustrates the united states seriousness about promoting peace. when the president was here, he talked about restarting peace talks, but he did not talk about moving the u.s. embassy. >> leland: six months to go until another decision needs to be made by the president on this issue. john huddy and jerusalem, thank you. >> heather: this sunday, more than a thousand people are expected to skip the elevators and climb. new york's one world -- the
annual event raises money for our injured service members. he is the founder of tunnel towers. you're also stephen siller's brother. he started this foundation to keep his memory alive. tell us about him and take us back to that day. he turned his truck around, went back to the firehouse >> we have an event that
reenacts, -- >> we do a climb every year the freedom tower. that climb represents the heroism, the acts of courage, the loss of life inside the stairwells. >> heather: he was on the 27th floor and he was telling other firefighters to get out when he already knew one of the towers had fallen. >> he gave up his life to try to save somebody else. people just went to work. the acts of heroism. the climb is 2,226 steps. you can tell it was acts of heroism where people give up their lives and people save lives that day.
we are very proud that we are able to do this. >> heather: your brother was a hero. he left behind a wife and five children. >> they are all doing well. we are very proud of the things we are doing. the money that we raised -- >> heather: tell us about the program. >> we are building houses from all across america and those who paid the biggest price for our freedom because we know we went to war because of what happened on september 11th, 2001. the money we raised for the tower climb will help build these houses. we are giving one away next tuesday. we have hundreds that we committed to build.
make sure that we honor the sacrifice for those who died at 9/11. >> heather: thank you for joining us. thank you for sharing stephen's story with us. >> leland: will tweet those links out. in the meantime, new effort underway to make wisconsin the first in the nation to require drug testing for medicaid recipients. scott walker's proposal is not going over well with some critics. the potential impact it could have on the badger state and the entire country.
it's too bad you guys don't have anything to talk about. >> harris: is it funny yet? just kidding. president trump taking fire for backing out of the paris climate deal. he said till about saving american jobs. >> meghan: hillary clinton's new remarks are raising and more eyebrows and why some of her democratic pals are telling her it's time to let it go. >> harris: that plus our #oneluckyguy. our special guest today. mike lee. now back to a very special leland and heather. >> leland: looking forward to that. >> heather: wisconsin governor scott walker is pushing to require drug testing and work requirements for medicaid recipients. if approved, the badger state would set a new precedent for the entire country. mike is live in madison,
wisconsin, with more. >> this is a proposal that could -- scott walker says the name of the game here is to get medicaid recipients here, it's called badger care, get those recipients into the workforce where there will be required to pass a drug test. >> most of us believe that public assistance should be more like a trampoline than a hammock. for those who are able to work, we should enable them to get back to the workforce. >> opponents argue that people are being singled out. andrew get arguments that it will discourage drug use. it will discourage people from getting help for the medical problems. >> we think this would be a big step backwards. >> however, a key element to walker's proposal is not someone who tests positive for drugs automatically gets rolled into a drug addiction treatment program
at taxpayer expense. the only people refused public health benefits are those who refuse to be drug tested. the measure we need to be approved by the trump administration. it also needs to pass a state legislator as part of the overall state budget. that will happen later this summer. >> heather: thank you. >> leland: the opioid battle is raging and advocates are now looking to president trump to address the crisis. our guest worked for the u.s. department of health and human services. he is discussing a workable solution to this heartbreaking problem. plus, live pictures from the white house. we are waiting the daily briefing with scott pruitt. so when i need to book a hotel room,
