9:00 am
you want to email us. see you next sunday with the latest buzz. hope you will be watching. arthel: the president is back at the white house after a day of fundraising to boost his 02 reelection bid. he attended the annual gridiron dinner and shared a rare moment with the media. eric: the president putting aside his feud with the media if only for one night. he joked with journalists. he'll be folking fun at him sell and his administration. this follows a rocky week in the white house with the resting you nation of long-time you aide
9:01 am
hope hicks and the controversy or his son-in-law jared kushner. he remind his administration today to remain focused on the long term. >> people understand you can't look at the distractions. what the staff has to do is focus in on the results. if you look at the president's decisions which i always try to have people focus on. look at the economy, isis, the courts. the decisions and the things president trump have done have put him on a great course. if you are a republican you couldn't be happier. reporter: last night president trump attended the gridiron dinner, it's a dinner that happenedder year. the president is always invited, but this is the first year the president attended. he sent vice president mike
9:02 am
pence in his place last year. it's similar to the white house correspondents dinner but smaller. the white house gets to throw jokes at the media as well. it's mostly off the record except for the president's remarks. that's where the president made news saying of north korea, i won't rule out direct talks with kim jong-un. as far as the risk of dealing with a madman is concerned, that's his problem, not mine. they by the way called up a couple days ago saying we would like to talk, and i said so would we, but you have to denuke first. president trump made a joke about those security clearance issues you referenced in regards to his son-in-law. he said they were late because
9:03 am
jared had trouble getting through security. eric: the president had an event with republican donors, but something he said is raising eyebrows. reporter: friday night he had dinner with rnc donors. when he spoke to them on saturday, both of these event were closed to the press. but his remarks saturday were record and cnn said they obtained a copy of that recording and president trump reportedly referenced xi jinping's getting rid of term limit. he said that's great and mawb we'll have to give that a shot one day. the president was reportedly laughing and joke. he said more investigations should have happened after the
9:04 am
016 elect after -- after th 2016 and hillary clinton. arthel: jared kushner is under scrutiny for his business deals. this comes as the president gets ready to impose new tariffs and steel and aluminum. but he's facing backlash from both sides of the aisle. >> i think it should be done much more carefully. there is a difference between steel and aluminum. we do have a significant problem with aluminum and steel. china supplies 4% of the steel in the u.s. >> no trade war has ever worked. we don't want to make america
9:05 am
1930 again. arthel: in addition to everything else, there is reportedly lots of staff uncertainty. what's it going to take to turn the page, get things back on track? >> i think it will take a focus on the president's agenda. what reince priebus said in what you played earlier. when i talk to people at the white house they talk about infrastructure, immigration, they see there is action possible on the issue of guns in america. while feeling their achievement in other areas of the country. the problem is all of these distractions do cause problems, they do demoralize the staff, whatever people want to say about that. arthel: what's the president's role in calming the chaos. >> the president is an
9:06 am
unorthodoxed figure. he got elected in part because he was able to thumb his nose at convention all the way along. it seems from people who remembered his business career that he likes a degree of chaos. he likes conflicting opinions and rivalries and things of that nature. the staff infighting and the president tweeting things that distract completely from what he and republicans on capitol hill are trying to accomplish. arthel: can the president govern the country in this unorthodoxed approach? >> the deregulation and successes of isis and things of that nature. but clearly a contributor to the dropoff in his approval ratings has discomforted republicans on
9:07 am
capitol hill and made them less sure of themselves. arthel: you just ticked off a lot of successes the president has had thus far. other things have distracted those successes. at what point does the white house turn over and the internal turmoil beyond 1600 pennsylvania avenue. how far could the repercussions reach and ways the potential damage. >> you can say voters don't care about what they call white house gossip. but the other argument is this idea people feel the white house isn't working properly. this degree of of chaos under mines their capacity to govern. if that is the case, i think there can be a further erosion of the president's approval numbers, there can be great
9:08 am
concern about all of this drama. >> let's do this hypothetical. if ivanka and jared were to step out of the white house and no longer have an all-access pass to the president, their father and father-in-law. would chief of staff john kelly be able to bring order to the white house? >> probably not. because the problem isn't really ivanka or jared. the problem is you have a lot of people in the orbit of the president who are divide into different factions. this is the response we get from the white house is to say the stories are people with an agenda, people with grievances. but they are in the broad orbit of the presidency. i think it's difficult to impose order. i think john kelly has more success in that regard than reince priebus did. arthel: what will it take?
9:09 am
>> you would think there needs to be order and john kelly has tried to impose that. does the president have a role? perhaps. but that isn't his temperamental inclination to approach things in a very disciplined ordered and regular fashion. arthel: no answer to what's it going to take to get some order in the white house. >> i don't think there is any answer. arthel: thank you very much. eric: meanwhile, israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is in washington today. he faces a growing corruption scandal back home. police recommending indictments over jewelry, cigars and other issues. he said he did nothing wrong. tuesday he'll speak at the
9:10 am
american israeli public affairs policy conference. john bolton joins us. some troubles for both of the world leaders, but what do you expect will be the prime minister's main message when he addresses the group tuesday? >> i think he comes at a particularly important moment for israel and the president of the united states. coming off the success of the pro israel ask community in the united states. the president somehow found jerusalem to be israel's capital. but also at a time of real potential danger in the region, i think he wants to talk to the president about the threats the united states and israel and others in the region and what to
9:11 am
do about it. what is the president going to do about the obama administration iran nuclear deal. pull out of it in may? i hope that he does. how are we going to handle that? how will we handle the extension of iran yang conventional power. an iranian drone crossing into israeli air space. and how are we going to deal with the menace of north korea reported a few weeks ago based on a u.n. weapons inspector's report that chemical weapons being sold to syria perhaps financed by iran. there is a lot on the agenda, that's for sure. eric: we talked about the
9:12 am
iranian nuclear deal. that's tehran's effort to build a land bridge through syria to lebanon to supply hezbollah. what is the danger in that? how do we face the growing iranian threat on israel's borders? >> i think iran carefully calculated wait wanted come the defeat of the isis territorial caliphate. and unfortunately under president trump didn't do. iran has helped by arming and commanding iraq's military forces and the shiia militia and they linked up across iraq with the assad regime and created a new front line basically in the middle east. the fact is that we have got a
9:13 am
de facto russian-iranian alliance manifest especially in syria. iran is building a new military base in damascus a few years ago. russians built a substantial new air base. they are working together. by all he persons, preparing for the next struggle against the sunni arabs in israel. eric: what can the trump administration do to push iran back? >> the oil-producing monarchies on the arabian peninsula are in disarray because of the continuing dispute "qatar and the gcc members. what comes down to with iran is their continued pursuit $of nuclear weapons. forget the iran nuclear deal for a minute.
9:14 am
whatever technology north korea has iran can buy tomorrow for the right price. plus iran's continuing financial support. iran is the principle threat to international peace and security. that's what we should be focusing on in terms of middle east strategy. eric: what do you predict? >> i think the policy of the united states should be to help dissident iranians. i think we should provide material support, not military, but material, communications support for the iranian opposition to overthrow the ayatollahs before the 40th anniversary of their revolution in 1979. eric: arthel? arthel: he raced into the record
9:15 am
books as the world watched. now we say good-bye to the runner known for pulling off the impossible in the miracle mile. why some say your taxpayer dollars are going to support terrorists and their families. one west point cadet's family is taking their fight to washington. >> how do you explain to any tax paying american that their taxpayer dollars are going to fund terrorists. it needs to stop. beyond is a natural pet food that goes beyond assuming ingredients are safe...

9:23 am
this should be penalized. eric: the white house has been ratcheting up the pressure on the palestinians by moving the israeli embassy to jerusalem and cutting off some aid. president mahmoud abbas vowed they will continue. >> the americans are telling us to stop paying salaries to families of terrorists. we categorically reject this demand. eric: sphors from both sides of the aisle said they support the bill but were not ready to go on the record. others had no such reluctance. >> thank you for stepping out and i know you all are hurting. but thank you for using the tragedy of that murder as a catalyst for good.
9:24 am
>> how do you explain to any american that you're taxpayer dollars are going to fund the murder of americans. >> that's why we led the effort to support the taylor force act and i think it will become law. eric: it has been well worth it? >> yes, very much. >> every bit of energy we dedicated to this. totally worth it. eric where senate minority leader chuck schumer is the co-sponsor of the bill and said he'll dosing he can to pass it. the white house says if the legislation does reach president trump's decks he'll sign the taylor force act into law. later in this hour we are going to talk to israeli minister bennett about taylor and this

possible attacks by the united arab emirates to gain political influence during and after the 2016 presidential election all apparently through son-in-law, jared kushner. lauren blanchard is live with more details. hi, lauren. >> hi, eric. a special counsel robert mueller is now looking into ties between a lebanese american businessman, united arab emirates and the 2016 trump campaign. according to the time sources to investigators want to know if there were any attempts by members of the uae to buy a political favor or influence with the trump campaign to campaign money. the businessmen george nader the times report was a frequent visitor to the trump white house in 2017. advise top trump aids on middle east policy ahead of the president's visit to saudi arabia last year and nader had been invited to one of the leaders of the uae. the special counsel is interviewing witnesses about hammurabi influences in the
9:31 am
president and monica mitchard kushner's family business ties to the middle east and why the white house has broken secretary of state position on policies related to persian gulf nations. >> we could not understand why the trump administration was so firmly taking the saudi side in this dispute between the saudi and the righties and qataris because the united states has very important interest in qatar. at the top of the list are thousands of u.s. troops stationed in the base fare. reporter: the revelation that also suggest the russia probe is nothing beyond just election meddling. investigation is now just a couple shy of the one-year mark. >> my own view is suited to to serve his own interest to the point where it was the prior special counsel was there for about three years plus. everybody could see that was a mistake. >> all of us after the mueller investigation last month
9:32 am

9:33 am
management and fox news contributor. jerry carmen are trade was good? >> i will just add one word. trade wars are not good. everybody uses the word terrorist, but it's a tax. when all is said and done, the tax and the consumer ends up paying for it. you are seeing retaliation out there right now. when you put uncertainty into the system much all the system much all of these could then expect to increase going forward you put uncertainty in the economy and we have an economy hearing around the globe doing pretty darn well right now. eric: so how a 25% import tariff on steel and 10% tariff on aluminum impact the united states as a country in certain industries in particular? >> very simple, the price goes up on everything. i listen to wilbur ross today saying the tariff is insignificant and i guess the
9:34 am
question if it is insignificant and why do it in the first place? again, the economy's in pretty good shape for the markets have been doing while the last couple years. why add cost to the economy? simple as that. already seen your talking about bourbon and motorcycles and things like that and others will come out of it. the other thing i don't understand if they keep targeting china. china is 2% of steel imports. you're going after canada and mexico and countries that you don't have a beef with. i don't know where they're going with this. by the way, they will back off a little bit this week. hopefully clearer heads prevailed. eric: let's play some right now and talk about it after this. >> any tariff would be imposed on our industry would be unacceptable. any such decision would have both sides of the borders.
9:35 am
any suggestion that canadian steel would cause a threat to national security is completely obviously misled. arthel: that was the canadian trade minister. his president trump retracts and does not implement these terrorists, has the consideration alone done more good for damage for the u.s.? >> let's be clear. a lot of countries around the globe that do not play fair. donald trump the great negotiator going behind closed doors in sick down with your trade negotiators and get something done for both sides are happy. don't put it out there and again, the big thing about the market was not just the tariff. when you say that trade wars are good and those are the worst for words you can say that the president when it comes to an economy. we have seen this story before and it never ends well. go back to george bush for evidence. he put a big tariff and how to
9:36 am
get rid of it was supposed to be three years. i read it it after 10 months because of retaliation and jobs lost. sometimes the evidence is at hand and i don't think they're listening to the evidence just yet. eric: how closely is the stock market paying towards the pendulum policy pronouncements via twitter? >> in the last 50 years everything he says matters not only hearing around the globe. again, he is the president of the united states, leader of the free world and everything he says counts. when you are bouncing back and forth, i go back to the word uncertainty. if you want to market going down, it's exactly what you saw this week. arthel: overall, would you say
9:37 am
president trumps economic outlook and approach is good for the american economy? >> i let the tax cuts. as a long-time coming. i love the economic corporate tax cuts. i do not agree on the trade. there are people that will disagree with me, but we have 100 years of history on trade that free trade is good and when you have issues of countries don't negotiate out loud, don't use harsh rhetoric because that when you see the retaliation started already. i believe they will back off to a certain extent and throw some waiver that some countries that they don't have beef with. go see it this week. arthel: this wiki say. we'll be watching. thank you. trade to arthel come in a winter summary topic leaving nearly 2 million people without power. we will have an update next. plus israeli prime minister benjamin that yahoo! is in
9:38 am
washington right now despite a firestorm of investigations back home. could the business impact president trumps hopes for peace? what about potential charges against him? the israeli minister joins us without straightahead. gosh with that in clinical trials, prevagen has been shown to improve short-term memory. prevagen. the name to remember. oh! there's one.a "the sea cow""
9:39 am
manatees in novelty ts? surprising. what's "come at me bro?" it's something you say to a friend. what's not surprising? how much money matt saved by switching to geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more.
9:40 am
9:41 am
a trip back to the dthe doctor's office, mean just for a shot. but why go back there, when you can stay home, with neulasta onpro? strong chemo can put you at risk of serious infection, which could lead to hospitalizations. in a key study, neulasta reduced the risk of infection from 17% to 1%, a 94% decrease. applied the day of chemo, neulasta onpro is designed to deliver neulasta the next day, so you can stay home. neulasta is for certain cancer patients receiving strong chemotherapy. do not take neulasta if you're allergic to neulasta or neupogen (filgrastim). ruptured spleen, sometimes fatal as well as serious lung problems, allergic reactions, kidney injuries, and capillary leak syndrome have occurred. report abdominal or shoulder tip pain,

9:43 am
trade to israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is in washington today despite the growing corruption scandal back home. he is expected to meet with president trump tomorrow will speak at the aipac conference in washington on tuesday. how can this impact the administration's plan for peace in the mideast? israel's minister of education and member of the israeli security cabinet. minister, welcome. >> great to be here, eric. eric: good to be here. the israeli police have recommended indictments revolving around the gifts of cigars, jewelry for the prime minister has ways prime minister and his wife sarah paid for some positive news coverage. he says he's done nothing wrong. would you make of the case? >> and outcome of prime minister benjamin net and yahoo! and myself our opponents and with utter disagreements but i've known prime minister netanyahu for over 12 years. i know this, he would not sell israel's security or national interests for personal gain.
9:44 am
you know, he lost his older brother, yanni in battle. i named my own first boring side in memory. netanyahu fought in war and was injured. he would not sell israel's interest for personal gain and i hope and believe the investigation will show that. eric: you've mentioned the commander who led the raid on its heavy so many years ago. meanwhile, israel's security. we talked about listed missiles and every nuclear deal, but something more pressing right now, the iranian expansionist area to build and support hezbollah has got to have you really worried. we are worried that we are reacting. we will not in syria we are stopping them.
9:45 am
iran wants to become regional and afterwards a global empire than we are stopping them using force if necessary and we certainly know the united states is behind us and we appreciate that and will continue doing so. eric: what should they do to prevent this? >> we've never asked american soldiers to fight for israel. we can defend ourselves and we've always defended ourselves. but we do need is a general umbrella coverage knowing america has her back and we feel very secure and confident that the united states of america but in the meantime we will continue we will continue by ourselves. eric: hezbollah has maybe 100,000 missiles at northern israel and russia backing the iranians pouring more money and
9:46 am
resources and apparently even russian contract areas into syria. >> russia's iran is a different story. russia is supporting. that is not necessarily a big friend of iran. we have taken action. in fact, dozens of actions already in the field to slow down and eventually stop iran. we know what we need to do. we have to understand that iran is sort of an octopus. the head is in tehran, but extending its tentacles into lebanon and syria, into gaza even in their eric: envelope israel can make our lives miserable. we will not allow them to do that. what we need to know if america has her back and will continue to support us as we fight not against these enemies. israel being where it is is a very strong asset for the free world because we in fact are
9:47 am
fighting back all of radical islamic terrorism including iran. eric: mentioned terrorism in earlier we had a story about taylor for his and we've reported on this extensively. taylor was a west point graduate walking two years ago in tel aviv with friends from vanderbilt business school where he was attending. he had served in afghanistan and iraq. he had gone to west point and he was sent today by palestinian terrorists. 10 of his friends were severely wounded in now. it turns out his killer spam is getting paid by the palestinian authority. they shell out 300 million a year for convicted terrorists or israeli jails. what you think about that practice? >> this is ridiculous. palestinians say $1200 a month to anyone who murders one individual. if you murder two or three get multiples about. this is how palestinians operate and they actually have a menu of
9:48 am
how much overseas if you kill the right amount of jews. what is really ridiculous unwillingly american taxpayers are funding this, that is why they taylor force bill is so vital. i'm sure not one of our viewers would accept the fact they are paying money that goes to pay and reward killers, but then go out and incentivize more people to kill jews. eric: abbas says he's not going to stop it. let's listen to what he said. [speaking in native tongue] >> translator: americans are telling us we must stop paying salaries. we categorically reject this demand. eric: what would you say to mr. abbas and the palestinian authority who refuse to stop these payments? >> what i will tell them the shame on you.
9:49 am
the fact that the leader of the palestinian people is out there saying we will continue to provide rewards for anyone who kills jews or individuals in terror attacks is just a huge embarrassment in disgrace and that is not how you achieve peace. we want peace, but she cannot have peace if your outstanding people to kill innocent civilians. we will fight back and urged the united states of america to pass the taylor force bill asap. >> it is in front of the senate. waiting for the pending action will report on not if it does reach the president's desk he will sign this bill into law and keep on it. i thank you, prime minister naftali bennett in washington today for the aipac meeting. thank you for your time today. >> thank you, eric. arthel: eric, we're going to italy where voters are flocking to the polls in a closely

arthel: voting underway in italy after campaign dominated by immigration, high unemployment in a sluggish economy. one of the nations most uncertain general election in years with our right and populist parties expected to make big gains. i'm a college's life from along with more. amy. >> hi, ourselves. steve bannon has been in italy taking it all in and he says that it epitomizes everything. it is pure populism reportedly. it has ourselves in a very dramatic campaign. we've had fascist rallies and town centers. we've had unabashed anti-immigrant rhetoric in the return of 81-year-old berlusconi who cannot really hold off because of the tax fraud conviction, but is likely, so they say, to be the kingmaker of the next government because there is going to be a lot of backroom wheeling and dealing. no one party expected to get enough votes to form a government alone.
9:55 am
the party has forged an alliance with right-wing groups and together they could garner enough votes. a four-time prime minister forced out during the last financial crisis and has been dogged by sex scandals. he was greeted by a protester when he cast his vote this morning. she had scrawled you have expired across her chest. berlusconi has anointed someone to take his seat if his party wins. the youngest prime minister is also back after stepping down in the wake of the disaster referendum here in 2016 on constitutional reform. his democrats are not expected to fare that well according to polls and then there is the five-star movement expected to be the party with the most votes but still not enough to win and they say they want to a coalition because it's against their antiestablishment principles. it is making some pretty big promises to the people. the votes will be yet not
9:56 am
