tv Your World With Neil Cavuto FOX News April 24, 2018 1:00pm-2:00pm PDT
cultural institution after a president took the first step to supply its books 218 years ago today. the news continues now on "your world." ♪ ♪ >> you are not going to be restarting anything. they restart it, they will have big problems. bigger than they have ever had before. and you can mark it down. they restart their nuclear program, they will have bigger problems than they have ever had before. >> the war of words in washington and new worries on wall street. president trump threatening that iran will pay the price if it restarts its nuclear program. meanwhile, investors are certainly paying the price here today as interest rates begin moving higher. hello, everyone i'm trish regan in for neil cavuto and this is "your world." we have more on stock sell off just a moment down 423. first we are going to iran. iran mouthing off and the president hitting back pretty hard. blake burman is at the white house with the very latest
for us. hi there, blake. >> hi there, trish. warnings to the iranians as it relates to the iran nuclear deal. iran essentially saying if president trump decides to pull back from the deal then iran would do the same on its own end. for example, here is what the foreclosure minister had to say earlier today. if the united states were to withdraw from the nuclear deal the immediate consequence in all like lie hood would be that iran would reciprocate and withdraw. the iranian president rouhani took it further than that threatening, quote: if someone wants to betray our nation and the deal, grave consequences will affect them. now, president trump has a little bit more than two weeks, up until may 12th to decide if the u.s. will stay in the deal or essentially leave it at a joint news conference here at the white house earlier today alongside the french president emmanuel macron, the president saying iran better not threaten the u.s. it should have never been made. and we're going to see what
happens on the 12th. but i will say if iran threatens us in any way, they will pay a price like few countries have ever paid. >> at that news conference the president said, quote, nobody knows what i'm going to do on the 129. but, trish, the president today as he has for months on end continued to trash the iran nuclear deal at one point saying it is based on, quote: decayed foundations. trish? >> trish: well, he definitely doesn't like it, blake burman thank you very much. so if we can't get some kind of new deal together by that deadline of may 12th, then is it time to say goodbye to the deal entirely? we are asking louisiana republican senator bill cassidy. senator, welcome. good to have you here. >> trish, thank you for having me. >> trish: do we need to let this thing go if no kind of a deal, so to speak, is actually reached by the 12th? >> it's going to be the president's call. he has access to classified information that i don't have. but, clearly, there is a sense that iran has used the
money that was given to them to try and foment activities in syria, lebanon, certainly in iraq that are against the national interest of the united states as well as other countries. that and other things i think are why the president is pushing this. but, again, ultimately it's his call. >> trish: senator, this is a country that is not exactly a friend of ours. this is a country that is saying we will severely regret pulling out of the deal and that they could act on this within a week. what kind of threat is that from iran? what are they trying to say? >> clearly we have military capability that is far greater than iran's. if they wanted to restart their nuclear program, they would not do it in a week. but, on the other hand, they are capable of a symmetric warfare and capable of unleashing terrorist attacks. and some of them may get through. so there might be consequences to it but, clearly, as well, we, the
united states could hurt them far more than they could hurt us. i would rather not be in this situation though. >> trish: yeah. i hear you. let me ask you about some of the other items in the news today. one of which of course is dr. ronny jackson and the president saying in the press conference earlier when asked by our very own john roberts whether or not this was going to move forward. basically, you know, he is a really nice guy and he told him you don't need this what does that signal to you whether dr. jackson is going to become head of the v.a. >> i can't get into conversations between the president and dr. jackson. i'm on the v.a. committee. i'm all about the veterans. what can we do to make sure they have better care. so if there is something that has arisen, i will do my best to learn what that is. if it turns out that there something in his personal life, maybe he doesn't want to go through it ultimately, we need a good leader for the v.a. one who serves the veterans as patients. >> trish: do you worry at all in this kind of
environment that his political enemies or perhaps the enemies of the president might be sort of making stuff up, seeing what sticks out there and clearly this one of the reasons people don't want to go into politics. that's tough to go through no matter where you are. we haven't seen accusations come with any kind of substantive sourcing. >> isn't it kind of curious that the navy would assign as a doctor to the president somebody who has such significant issues? to me that doesn't make sense. the navy is going to put their best person there. the best person there is not that good? that doesn't make sense. i agree with you, i want to give dr. jackson the benefit of the doubt and to see kind of what these allegations are about. and go from there. we have all done things that maybe we wish we hadn't. the question is does it disqualify us for job and that's what i'm trying to learn. >> trish: so i hear have you got a big shindig there tonight.
>> yeah. >> trish: you are going to the state dinner. >> yeah. obviously louisiana feels a special tie to france. and france has done a tremendous amount of investment in louisiana. if you will, macron and trump both have taken as a mission how do we improve better working conditions for better french and better work american conditions. france has a good story to tell you about it's been aided by investment from elsewhere. i'm interested to see if that comes up. >> trish: let me ask you, he had an opportunity to be pretty inclusive on this one and he wasn't, the president, that is should have invited democrats? should very invited more members of the media? should this have been a more inclusive overall dinner instead of just sticking to his wing? >> trish, clearly that's the way it's always been done. both of these presidents got elected by doing things differently. i won't try and second guess
the fellow who has been quite successful pursuing things his way. the more important thing is that he and macron can figure out how to make global economies work for americans and french who have been left behind by the global economy, who cares who he invites? better jobs and better businesses? >> trish: that said, when you they're as president on the global stage, inviting a global leader this is the united states of america and even though we may have our political differences and there are folks on the opposite side as you and the president, don't we still want to put forward a united front in front of the president of the france and any other president for that matter. >> i hear what you saying, every time i second guess the president something good apparently happens. i wasn't sure he should be tweeting at kim jong un and here we have north korea for the first time appearing to do something positive. at least the first time in a long time.
it's easy to second-guess. on the other hand track record has been pretty good so far. i will hold on my second-guessing. >> trish: senator, have fun tonight. >> thank you. >> trish: thanks for being here. now to tensions over on iran to the tension on wall street there is a lot of it right now. stocks rocked today with the dow falling 424 points. could have been worse though. at one point we were down more than 600. it's the fifth straight losing session. what can you blame? two things. 10 year treasury hitting highest level in four years. one point crossing that 3% level. means companies, businesses, you and me are all going to have to pay more to borrow money. the united states is going to have to pay more to borrow money if these rates keep moving higher. i want to go to fox business network for a closer look at all that happened today. >> it was a big sell-off, trish, as you just alluded to. all indices down more than 1.5%. we are right in the middle
of erpg season. so this week alone about a third of the s&p 500 companies are going to be publishing sales and earnings reports. so caterpillar and 3 m hurt the dow. the construction equipment maker beats earnings and sales forecasts but all about the future. the cfo implied the rest of the year would not match. that stock as you can see on your screens down more than 6%. 3 m hurt in the industrial averages. earnings met expectations but again that's in the past. looking forward the company lowered the its four year profit forecast. as you can see there the stock down more than 6.5%. tech. alphabet google reported earnings last evening exceeded estimates on the top and bottom lines. investigators, again, focused on the future with regulatory challenges ahead, a little bit less confident in the stock today. i want to point out some of here to other tech companies that fell facebook, amazon
noting they report earnings later on this week as well. apple and netflix closed lower today. investors want to see earning perfection. they are an tis paghtd higher interest rates trish you just talked about from the fed that makes all borrowing more expensive. they, some investors are also imposing or suggesting that if these tariffs tensions continue, every company will be paying more for input costs, raising input costs. so the other stumbling points today came from a little competition in the bond investors. 10-year government bond yield up 3% for the first time in four years. significant for a few reasons. on a basic level if an vert shelter by making safe buying u.s. government bonds sometimes that appears to be a long-term alternative to the stock market. so, a few factors at play here, trish, as you alluded to closing off the lows but not great consolation
closing levels of the day. >> still going to say 3% is awfully darn low. all right, everyone, first the comey memos and now look who just convinced the justice department to give those documents related to the fbi probe of hillary clinton. what are they hoping to find? judge napolitano is here. he's next. and, we're getting new details on the van attacker in toronto now charged with 10 counts of first degree murder. who is he and why did he do it? no matter when you retire, your income doesn't have to. see how lincoln can help ensure you still have income every month of your retirement, guaranteed, at lincolnfinancial.com.
>> trish: this news breaking right now, mitch mcconnell has filed a motion a petition to end the debate on mike pompeo becoming secretary of state. that means we could sees a early as thursday a procedural vote on our next secretary of state. you can possibly get confirmation that day as well. so, again, mitch mcconnell filing this cloture petition to end debate. the debate that's been going on about mike pompeo and we may very soon possibly
thursday have a new secretary of state there are new questions at this hour after a couple top republicans reached agreement justice department for documents related to the fbi's investigation into hillary clinton's emails. what legally could come of this? fox news senior judicial annual list judge andrew napolitano joins me on set with more. good to see you as always. >> trish, always a pleasure. >> trish: what could come of it. >> well, it depends on who is choosing the documents and then it depends on what the recipients of the documents, members of congress want to do with what they have. what i would like to see come of it, if i could tinker with the question a little bit, is a decision to present evidence to a grand jury. evidence against mrs. clinton. i believe the evidence of her guilt is overwhelming and the decision not to indict her was probably unreasonable. that bass jim comey's famous no reasonable prosecutor, i'm giving air quotes, would take the case. there is a danger, in my opinion, to selecting
documents. there is a million 250,000 pages of documents, believe it or not, in the investigation of mrs. clinton. doj officials have selected what they want congress to see. members of congress will select from that what they want us to hear. they can't show us the documents, members of congress, but they can summarize them. will they summarize them for law enforcement purpose or summarize them for a political purpose? that's the danger. >> unfortunately, i think you know the answer to that one. >> right. that's why i have been saying this for months. the president wants this done. senator sessions, when he was a senator, now the attorney general, said this should be done. and that is present the evidence to a grand jury. which was never done by mrs. lynch, attorney general lynch and james comey and let the grand jury decide whether or not to indict her. i'm convinced they will indict her. >> trish: you get the indictment. >> she is prosecuted like anybody else. the president may decide i don't want to prosecute my campaign opponent, i'm going to give her a pardon.
>> trish: you know why i bring it up and i only bring it up because, look, this is what you see in places like brazil. this is what you see in government systems that do not have transitions of power that move peacefully. that said, if this -- if she deserves it, we also can't stand by, i think, judge, and allow that to happen. >> judge: you put your finger right on it, trish. the president has done the same. because he said during the campaign she should be charged, she should be indicted. she should be prosecuted like anybody else. after he got elected he said you know what? we're not a ba than marie public. ultimately it would be his decision. which public policy better that a person as to whom the evidence of guilt is overwhelming is not prosecuted because we don't want to look like a ba than marie public or a person who ran against the president or lost suffered grievously because we all thought she was going to win is prosecuted because the evidence of her guilt is
overwhelming. guess who gets to make that call. a recommendation by rod rosenstein and attorney general sessions to the president and then he makes the call. >> trish: you know, my fear with not moving forward with something like that is that you run an even bigger danger which is that administrations think oh i can do it. i can get away with it my predecessor got away it. so and so got away with it. then you are in a real pickle. >> judge: let me tell you inside the beltway danger justice departments don't like to criticize their predecessors. they are not bound by a decision of the predecessor unless the statute of limitations has run, had which it has not here. it's 10 years here. they don't want to second guess, the sessions doj doesn't want to second guess the loretta lynch doj because they don't want to be second-guessed by fill in the blank whoever succeeds jeff sessions. >> trish: they are trying to protect themselves. >> is that what he wont in law enforcement? of course not. if you are afraid of that you shouldn't be in the government. >> trish: what do you think happens, judge? >> nothing.
>> trish: ugh. >> i do think congressman god i can't understand congressman goodlatte for whom i have a lot of respect look at these documents and draw from it what further their political narrative and we'll hear about it. the democrats on those committees will look at those same documents and draw an entirely different political narrative. it's the same thing the house intelligence committee is doing. members of congress looking at raw secret material and coming to opposite conclusions. nothing happens. >> trish: it all comes back to politics, unfortunately. >> yes, it does. >> trish: facebook opening the books so, to speak, on how it censors posts and now it's going to go allow users to actually appeal its decisions. well this is not enough to impress investors today. but what about diamond and silk? yeah. >> today is us. tomorrow it could be you. no one person should have this entity that's the whole world uses and think they can control their free speech, tell you what you are going to see and what you are not going to see. >> that's right.

>> do you think mark zuckerberg does have a bias against conservative sites, conservative, you know, participants? >> i believe him and his platform does. >> yes, we do. >> yes. >> a lot of conservatives, listen, we have been getting complaints. we have been getting several complaints, other platforms where they are being censored. >> yes. >> don't censor our page and don't censor anybody's pages and get these algorithms off of conservative's pages. >> trish: okay with that in mind, will diamond and silk like this? facebook revealing its rule book on what content it takes down and why. the company also introducing an appeals process for users
to dispute removed posts so will this new move by facebook remove any of the bias on the site at all? let's go to political commentator daniel mcglaughlin and fox news contributor kat timpf. kat starting with you. is this enough for facebook going after them specifically for their views? >> i don't think so. because first of all it doesn't change what's targeted in the first place. it just has an appeals process. second of all, we don't know how long this appeals process can take. there is a chance that by the time everything gets through all the channels, that the content that was posted won't even be relevant anyway. and that seems especially likely considering how fast the news cycle moves. let's say your appeal is accepted and your content goes back up. nobody might care anymore. tissue tissue daniel, people are upset. conservatives have felt the brunt of this. they feel they are being censored. there is a human aspect to all of this though that we
can't forget about that is engrained within the facebook platform. >> right. it's run by humans and these algorithms who are designed by humans who have their own implicit biases. study found in 2016 finding that the trending views was suppressing conservative news stories. facebook decided it would do whatever it could to make sure it didn't could that anymore. that conservative voices were heard. but, there will always be biases on platform. facebook needs to reckon with it that it is not -- it's a news site. we are going to see different kinds of news from different kinds of sources but there is implicit bias within humans so implicit bias here. >> trish: how could they reckon with it? >> they are not a platform. they go around and say we are a platform and not a publisher. in fact, they are a publisher. we have 45% of americans getting news from facebook. like you said, there is going to be a bias, but there has to be checks and balances. i actually think this is going to help. i think the increased transparency, maybe not in the long temple but in the
short-term is going to help them have news that little bit more fair and balanced. at least that's my hope. >> trish: interesting you are saying they are a publisher of news getting all this content, kat from us and other news source ofs do. they need to take more accountability for that then? i know they are trying to. in other words, they are taking your material, they are postings it, they are not paying you for it it's not being vetted properly enough, does this entire model really need to be looked at very carefully because from a business point of view and just a human point of view it matters to folks? >> yeah, i think it does. it does matter. i think this is a good first step. i agree that allowing for things to be appealed is a good first step. we have seen things be removed that don't make sense at all for it to be removed. things that need to be removed that won't. fake profile i kept reporting. they finally took it down after i reported it multiple times. there is someone really looking at that they can see it's a fake profile.
clearly the reporting section of this business, that deals with that, there needs to be some changes. >> trish: i had a similar problem. why is it so difficult for them to take this down? i'm sitting there telling them it took quite some time and could have actually done some damage because i think the fake profile was offering investment advice. >> eroded your trust and that is what you have to have to participate on the platform. 2.8 millennial millennials left the platform. if you don't trust you won't be a user. >> trish: interesting you say that we see zuckerberg in those hearings, i myself have not been as active on personal page obviously for the show but my personal page. i have kind of let that go a little bit. and i don't think i'm the only one daniel. >> i don't think you are. it's not just what is happening with the censoring but in the wake of cambridge analytica and privacy protection. so facebook in 201 2011 entered into a consent decree with the federal trade commission because it's concerned with
privacy and third party acts. did they violate this with cambridge analytica? ftc is looking into this. i agree with you that if there is no trust, we're not going to use the platform. all of these things combined are not great for the company. >> trish: what's the libertarian view on it though? >> i certainly wouldn't want the government to regulate it facebook better job of regulating itself. this they don't they will feel push back from the consumer. i know they are a little bit. i know i use it less before all this stuff came out. >> you are talking about regulation. that's what it is. >> i'm going to take it a step further. is there a chance that this company has gotten so big with over 2 billion users worldwide that it has become a monopoly at all i agree. i don't like regulation either. there aren't enough competitors out there. if you are going to see all your friends, you will not necessarily find them or all your old high school buddies on other platforms. >> i worry if there were certain regulations and government got involved it
would be harder for competitor startups that couldn't comply with those things. >> i'm wondering if people are on facebook not actually posting but watching. i haven't posted since october of 2017. >> watching other people. >> i'm still watching other people. i'm sorry continue to put the facebook post up. your profile did i that one. still watching thought participating. >> trish: daniel, could they being increasingly becoming a monopoly how big they are and google and amazon. m word come to mind here. >> absolutely what we are seeing in europe and other parts of the world. you are seeing much more regulation because privacy constraints and statutory protections are much, much stronger in europe than they are here. i wonder whether that might be a part of what happens here. understanding of course that libertarians wouldn't be on board with it. >> i'm a little concerned after watching that hearing. those congress men and congresswoman. >> they have never been on the platform before. i'm not sure if they know what platform means in that context to be honest with you.
>> trish: good to see you. >> thank you so much. >> trish: we know the suspect in that deadly van attack in toronto was charged with 10 counts of first degree murder today. what was his motive? find out what authorities are saying at this hour, coming up. how is that mid-air explosion leading to new problems for southwest passengers today. we are on it for you. see you right back here after this. scene- awwwww...did mcgruffy wuffy get a tippy wippy? i'm serious! we gotta move fast before- who's a good boy? is him a good boy? erg...i'm just gonna go. oh, you wanna go outside? you gotta go tinky poo-poo? i already went, ok? in the bathroom! as long as people talk baby-talk to dogs, you can count on geico saving folks money. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, little things can be a big deal. that's why there's otezla. otezla is not an injection or a cream.

♪ >> trish: toronto van attack suspect minute nas minassian chd with 13 counts murder and attempted murder. why did he do it? rick leventhal is in toronto with the latest on that. hi, rick. >> hey, trish. authorities wouldn't go into a lot of detail in news conference this afternoon but did confirm something we reported this morning that there was a facebook post from the suspect before he carried out the carnage here on young street and law enforcement source tells fox news that the post on facebook and on twitter were homage to a -- >> trish: we are having a little bit of a technical difficulty there with rick leventhal's reporting. but we are -- continuing to get new details there on that toronto van attacker.
authorities are saying he sent a cryptic facebook message just minutes before his attack and police are still not saying why he did it they don't know exactly what the motive was regardless of motive we have seen this type of deadly attack before, haven't we? how do we protect ourselves? how do we spot it before it happens? we're going right now to former cia analyst tara mueller with more on that. and tara, it's as though all the symptoms are there whether someone is posting certain things on social media, whether they -- they thee neighbors are growing concerned. how do we make sure as a society we recognize this, we treat this? if there are people who are truly horrible people that want to cause harm, why aren't we doing more to find them before it happens and make sure that they don't? >> you're 100 percent correct. and hindsight is 2020.
oftentimes in these cases whether it's a terrorism related case or whether it's an individual that's driven by another motivation like in this case, there are signs. and there is usually signs online. we heard again in this case that social media posts were made. we see this also analogous to terrorist cases where there is always a wide range of posts and activity that indicate these attacks are motivations or ideology of individuals. and also another thing is close family and friends really need to, you know, be vigilant about their loved ones or people close to them. and if they observe things that are suspicious, that's one check point. but, also, this individual rented a van, same thing we see that in terrorism cases. and you have seen ramping up security measures on van religions and also in terms of purchasing certain types of equipment. there are supposed to be a lot of checks in place. unfortunately, many of these people do slip through the cracks. i don't believe he was on law enforcement's radar for any reason. so it doesn't seem like they
sort of missed something here in connecting the dots. nobody seems to have reported him. but, again, it's early. perhaps he does have some sort of record. >> trish: let me ask you about this. you think about mental illness in the world. i don't care, you are parts of a terrorist organization, you may be willingly part of that to me, you are mentally ill. there is something clearly wrong with you. i wonder if as a society we have been a little too willing to say well, mental illness is not something that we can lock someone up for unless they are willing to be locked up. but, if all the signs are pointing in one direction, you know, you think about what we actually did as a country decades ago, can we go back to some form of that? maybe not in its most extreme form but gosh, if somebody is exhibiting all the symptoms of being a problem how is it that they are out of there to be walking freely on the streets of america? >> it seems in all of these cases are they are multicausal. there seems to be some type
of mental illness or issue obviously at its heart problem with the individual's psychology. then there is other factors contributing to this. because, obviously, somebody has to turn violent for law enforcement or individual to really do something about it. and you know, one of the things that we have seen and this is terrorism potentially here as well online creating a community where online reaction is radican occurring. tech companies need to be more vigilant track cacing down on that. part of communities my a subject chauvinistic in nature. that's reported by multiple sources. also referencing past mass murderers in his posts. signs out there. also in terms of the acquisition in a vehicle attack very difficult. he didn't use a weapon but he used a vehicle. but the troubling trend here is he took sort of a page out of a terrorist's playbook because vehicle attacks are what we have seen in berlin. what we have seen in the
niche attack in france. what we have seen in the u.k. this is something that terrorist groups have been calling for. it's interesting that he, despite having no ties to terrorism, is now in some ways to a copycat of that tactic for an unrelated non-terrorist inspired ideological attack. >> trish: tar remarks have you seen the video of the take down and if so what do you make of it? >> i think it was interesting that they were able to 10 individuals who lost their life. fortunately it didn't go beyond that though a number were injured. they didn't kill the suspect in terms of intelligence perspective and understanding the motivations lined this and perhaps we can learn something from this. i think in all of these cases, you know, law enforcement, i should note we don't see the success stories of plots that are thwarted or attacks that are prevented. we see, unfortunately, these cases where tragedy strikes. but, you know, i think in this case law enforcement responded quickly from what can i tell. it doesn't seem to have been
mishandled from the information that's been available. >> trish: thank you so much for joining us today. i want to get back to rick leventhal who is there in toronto with more on this entire story. rick, we lost you there momentarily but, please, continue on with your reporting. >> well, trish, there is an investigation ongoing obviously. but their focus apparently according to law enforcement source facebook and twitter post that the suspect minassian made before yesterday's attack this which he paid homage to a killer in california named elliott roger who stabbed, shot, ran over 20 people at the university of california santa barbara back in 2014 killing 6 before taking his own life. roger left behind man nest toe expressing anger for women rejecting him and men sexual. he called involuntary celibacy. he mirrored the comment made by roger in california.
there was no reference to isis or al qaeda. just this issue he had with women and with men. and that may be what prompted yesterday's horrible carnage on young street when he drove about a mile down a busy thoroughfare, up on the sidewalk, hitting about two dozen people. he was in court earlier today. he faces 10 counts of first degree, 13 counts of attempted murder. we had a news conference with the mayor and the police commissioner this afternoon. they called this a complex investigation. very challenging. they said they still haven't identified all the victims. that may not release names for several days, trish, they also said that the most of the victims were, in fact, women. so he may have been targeting women in this attack. >> trish: tough to hear. all right. thank you very much, rick. we appreciate your reporting. southwest passengers meanwhile facing some new problems this week in the wake of that engine explosion. we are on it for you. what lies ahead for migrants heading to our southern
border. the new warning from the white house. i will see you right back here after this. ♪ ke. can one medicine help treat both blood sugar and cardiovascular risk? i asked my doctor. she told me about non-insulin victoza®. victoza® is not only proven to lower a1c and blood sugar, but for people with type 2 diabetes treating their cardiovascular disease, victoza® is also approved to lower the risk of major cv events such as heart attack, stroke, or death. while not for weight loss, victoza® may help you lose some weight.

♪ ♪ trirk trish southwest >> trish: southwest passengers still feeling the effects. additional flights delaying others today. emergency engine inspections. trace gallagher joins us with more. hi, trace. >> hi, trish. the latest information so far today is that 79 southwest flights have now been cancelled and 466 flights have been delayed. that follows a few hundred cancellations yesterday and a few dozen the day before that remember, you had that domino effect where every flight that gets cancelled tends to kind of ripple across the entire airline from coast to coast. the emergency inspection came after an engine broke apart on a southwest flight last week shooting debris and piercing one of the plane's windows. killing passenger jennifer reardon. she was 43 years old.
of the problem appears to be metal fatigue that caused the fan blade to snap, which is very similar, if not identical to an engine failure southwest experienced two years ago. the f.a.a. has issued an emergency air worthiness directorrive concerning the engines which are made jointly by general electric in this country and a french manufacturer. but the f.a.a. directorrive only involves about 1,000 engines total. southwest says it's doing on top of that a voluntary inspection of all the its engine. southwests has 720 planes in fleets all of them are 737 models. completing the inspection could take several days. some passengers as you might imagine clearly frustrated by the delays. most seem to be adopting the better safe than sorry motto. watch. >> they are safe but, like anything, you need to take care of them. especially when they get old. but the maintenance program it needs to get fixed.
>> trace: right. last week marked the first that tattle on a u.s. airline in nine years. and it was the first accidental fatality ever on board a southwest airline's plane. trish? >> trish: trace, it's important to remember that you know. it's so emotional when you see something like this happen. and we all get a little nervous about flying. those numbers, those is a statistic is are on our side. a group of my grants heading towards california will be crossing a serious line. we got more coming up. right into the harbor. i'm gonna regret that. with new car replacement, if your brand new car gets totaled, liberty mutual will pay the entire value plus depreciation. liberty stands with you. liberty mutual insurance.
this coming after president trump called on the agency to block that caravan of migrants heading to the u.s. southern border as we speak. joining me right now is republican senate foreign relations committee member john barrasso. good to have you here, senator. >> thank you, trish. thanks for having me. >> trish: is he being tough enough? >> well, i think border security is national security. we want to make sure we have integrity at the border. and people trying to get in illegally need to be stopped for people that are coming from other countries and saying they are looking for asylum, then we ought to do the adjudication right there at the border. if that means more ice agents. if it means more judges right there, i think that's the place to do it. >> trish: that's a creative idea. right? because we are a country that offers asylum and if you are coming here legitimately for asylum, we want to be able to protect that history of what we do. but, it makes it much more challenging, senator, if you are actually in the country
then if it turns out you weren't really seeking asylum, we have got to get you out. >> that's right, trish. that was going on for a long time prior to president trump's election. where someone would come, in claim asylum. they would be saying okay, we will give you a date to come and then plead your case. well, those people for many times would not ever show up for that court appointment but they would be in the country and then be here essentially illegally. what the president is recommending is the right course of action because if we can't protect our borders, we cannot protect our country. >> trish: yet, of course, you are getting all kinds of push back. you will continue to get push back on this issue from members of the left who feel that this is not in keeping with our values as a country. not in keeping with who we are and the welcomeness that we have always extended to people. what do you say in reaction to that? >> well, i think these caravans aren't helpful or safe for anyone, for the people who are part of the caravan, this is a very
dangerous and can be a deadly trip through hostile, hostile territory. that is not good. it's not fair to the people of mexico. and, you know, many people ought to be applying for asylum in the country. they get to first, which is mexico. and certainly it's not fair for the people of the united states who sometimes then bear the burden of the additional expenses related to the people who are here illegally. so, i support what the president is doing. i support what the secretary of homeland security has promoted, but it also gets to the cases we need a secretary of state to be dealing with other countries around the world where some of those people are coming from. because when you look at what is guatemala, honduras, el salvador. there are things to be dealt won the ground there and that's why it's critical we confirm mike pompeo. >> trish: senator, i don't have a ton of time. you are a doctor by background. let me ask you about dr. ronny jackson. do you think he is out of the running all together? you heard the president earlier today say hey, you
don't really need. this does that signal to you that he is not going to continue pursuing this position as head of v.a.? >> we need a secretary of the v.a. who is able to make sure that our veterans are getting the care that they need. i want to make sure the most qualified person is there. and that's up to the president to decide who he wants to nominate. >> trish: do you think that some of the things we have heard surrounding dr. jackson and how he may have acted in the past make him not as qualified? >> well it, raises a number of questions. and that's why we have hearings in the united states senate. to ask the questions of nominees and then for the senators to decide yes or no on confirming the nominee of the president. but the democrats have been blocking nominations for all throughout the time delaying the process, dragging it out, purely political. i wants to make sure we get the right people in place. the best people. president trump needs to get his team on the ground. >> trish: thank you very much. it's always good to see you. >> thank you. >> trish: president h.w.
bush falling ill after the funeral for his beloved wife. and while he emain remains in intensive care right now he is said to be recovering. we have a live report from the hospital in houston next. supplement in drug stores nationwide. prevagen. the name to remember. with expedia, you can book a flight, hotel, car, and activity... ...all in one place. everything you need to go. expedia
>> trish: well wishes pouring in for 41, former president george h.w. bush. he remains in a houston hospital fighting an infection that has entered his bloodstream. word today that he is responding to treatment and improving. our own jonathan hunt is at the hospital with an update for us. hi, jonathan. >> hi, trish. the former president's spokesman jim mcgrath sang on twitter today that he has no new details on the president's condition but he would "happily reaffirm" what he previously said, that president george h.w. bush is
responding and recovering. it's now more than 48 hours since he was brought here to methodist hospital just hours after attending his wife barbara's funeral. also attending that funeral of course were former presidents clinton, obama, and george w. bush. president bush's condition is said to be serious, an infection that's spread to his blood. that's obviously difficult for a man who is 93 and has had health problems. but his spokesman jim mcgrath said "the 41st president wants to go to maine this summer. he is the most goal oriented person on the planet. and i would not bet against him." today as barbara bush's gravesite officially opened to the public, i think it's safe to say that we all hope former president bush makes that trip to maine this summer. trish. >> trish: absolutely. i hope he enjoys his summer in kennebunkport. our prayers are with him. thank you so much, jonathan. that will do it for me here today.
