8:00 am
unexpected rendezvous with death. over the last five years, my country and europe also experienced several terrorist attacks. and we shall never forget. the resilience of our people in the aftermath. it is a horrific price to pay for freedom, for democracy. that's why we stand together in syria today to fight together against these terrorist groups that seek to destroy everything for which we stand. we have encountered countless rendezvouses with death because we have this constant attachment to freedom and democracy. [applause]
8:01 am
as emblazoned in the flags of the french revolutionaries -- [speaking french] live free or die. thankfully, freedom is all that is worth living for. freedom is a call to think and to love. it is a call to our will. that is why in times of peace, france and the united states were able to forge unbreakable bonds from the grips of painful memories. the most indestructible, the most defensive knot between us. it's the ones that ties the purpose of our peoples to advance. the unfinished business of democracy. indeed, our two societies have stood up to advance the human rights for all.
8:02 am
they have engaged in a continual dialogue to impact this unfinished business. in this capitol rotunda, the birth of martin luther king, assassinated 50 years ago, reminds us of the inspiration of african american leaders, artists, writers who have become part of our common heritage. many of them who france hosted on our soil. we have shared the history of civil rights. many became involved in gender equality in american in the 70s. woman's rights have long been a driver for societies on both sides of the atlantic. this explains why the this has
8:03 am
had a deep resonance in france. democracy is made of day-to-day conversation and mutual understanding between citizens. it is easier and deeper when we have the ability to speak a chosen language. the heartbeats here in the united states, from new orleans to seattle, i want this heart to beat even harder in american schools all across the country. democracy relies also on the faculty of freely describing the presence and the capacity to look at the future. this is what culture brings. thousands of examples come to mind. when we think of the exchanges between our cultures across the centuries, from thomas
8:04 am
jefferson, who was ambassador to france and built his house in nonticello, to different french writers bringing to the french people to dream of american spaces, forests and mountains, to novels crafted in the deep south, first read in france where they gained literary praise. from jazz coming from louisiana and the blues from mississippi finding in france an enthusiastic public to the american fascination and the french modern and contemporary art. these exchanges are vibrant in so many fields from cinema to fashion, from design to high cuisine, from sports to visual
8:05 am
arts. medicine and scientific research as well as business and innovation are a significant part of our shared journey. the united states is france's first scientific partner. our economic ties create hundreds of thousands of jobs on both sides of the atlantic. the story of france and the united states is a story of an endless dialogue, made of common dreams, of common struggles for dignity and progress. it is the best achievement of our democratic principles and values. this is a very special relationship. this is us. [applause] but we must remember the warning
8:06 am
of president theodore roosevelt. freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. we didn't pass it to our children in the blood stream. it must be fought for, protected, handed on for them to do the same. [applause] this is an urgent reminder indeed. because now going beyond our bilateral ties, beyond our special relationship, europe and the united states must face together the global challenges of the century. and we cannot take for granted our history and bonds.
8:07 am
our values are at risk. we have to succeed facing these challenges and we cannot succeed in forgetting our principles and our history. in fact, the 21st century has brought a series of new threats and new challenges that our ancestors might not ever have imagined. our strongest beliefs are challenged by the rise of unknown new world order. our societies are concerned about the future of the children. all of us gathered here in this chamber. we, elected officials, all share the responsibility to demonstrate that democracy remains the best answer to the
8:08 am
questions and doubts that are raised today. even if the foundations of our progress are disrespected, we must stand firmly and fight to make our principles prevail. [applause] but we bear another responsibility inherited from our collective history. today the international community needs to step up our game and built the 21st century world order paced on the principles that we established together after world war ii. the rule of law. the values in which we secure peace for 70 years are now questioned by urgent issues that
8:09 am
require our joint action. together with our international allies and partners, we are facing inequalities created by the attacks on democracy and the destabilization of our international community but new powers and criminal states. all of these risks aggrieve our citizens. both in the united states and europe, we're living in a time of anger and fear. because of this current global threat. but these feelings do not build anything. you can play with fear and angers for a time. but they do not construct anything. anger only freezes and weakens
8:10 am
us. as franklin roosevelt said in his first inaugural speech, the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. [applause] therefore let me say we have two possible ways ahead. we can choose isolationism, withdrawal and nationalism. this is an option. it can be tempting to us as a temporary remedy to our fears. but closing the door to the world will not stop the
8:11 am
evolution of the world. it will not doubt the fears of our citizens. we have to keep our eyes wide open to the new risks rising in front of us. i'm convinced that if we decide to open our eyes wider, we will be stronger. we will overcome the dangers, we will not let the rampaging work of extreme nationalism shake a world full of hope for greater prosperity. it is a critical moment. if we do not act with urgency as a global community, i am convinced that the international institutions, including the united nations and nato, will not longer be able to exist by their mandate and stabilizing
8:12 am
influence. we will then inevitably and severely undermine the liberal order we built after world war ii. all the powers with the strongest strategy and ambition will then fill the void we leave empty. all the powers will not hesitate once again to advocate their own model to shape the 21st century world order. personally, if you ask me, i do not share the assassination for new strong powers, the abandonment of freedom and the illusion of nationalism. [applause]
8:13 am
therefore distinguished members of the congress, let us push them aside, write our own history and bring the future we want. [applause] we have to shape our common answers to the global threats that we are facing. the only option then is to strengthen our cooperation. we can build the 21st century world order based on a new breed of military, based or a more effective accountable and results oriented military a legion. this requires more than ever the
8:14 am
united states involvement as your role was decisive for creating and guarding today's free world. the united states who invented this theory. you are the one now who has to help to preserve and reinvent it. [applause] this strong military a legion will not outshine our national cultures and national identities. it is exactly the other way around. a strong military a legion will
8:15 am
allow our cultures and identities to be respected, to be protected and to flourish freely together. why? because precisely our own cultures is based on both sides of the atlantic of this unique pace for freedom, on this unique attachment or the liberty and peace. this strong legion is the unique option compatible with our nations, our cultures, our identities. with the u.s. president, with the support of every member of this joint station, representing the american nation, we can actively contribute together to building the 21st century world
8:16 am
order for our people. the united states -- [applause] the united states and europe have a historical role in this respect. because it is the only way to defends what we believe in, to promote our universal venues, to express strongly that human rights, the rights of minorities and shared liberty are the true answer to the orders of the word. [applause] i believe in these rights and
8:17 am
values. i believe that against ignorance we have dedication against inequalities development, against cynicism, trust and good faith. against fanaticism, culture, against disease and medicine. against the threats on the planet, science. [applause] i believe in protection. i believe the solutions are in our hands. i believe in the liberation of the individual and the freedom and responsibility of everyone
8:18 am
to build their own lives and pursue happiness. [applause] i believe in the power of intelligently regulated market economies. we are experiencing the positive impact of our current economical globalization with innovations, job creations. but however, the abuses of globalized capitolism and digital disruptions that could hurt our economies and democracies, i believe facing these challenges require us. commercial war is not the proper end. [applause]
8:19 am
we need a free and first rate for sure. [applause] a commercial war opposing a lie is not consistent with our mission, with our history, with our current commitment for the global security. at the end of the day, it will destroy jobs, increase prices and the middle class will have to pay for it. i believe we can build the right answers to legitimate concerns regarding trade and balances, excesses and overcapacities by negotiating through the world trade organization and building cooperative solutions.
8:20 am
we wrote these rules. we should follow them. [applause] i believe we can address our citizens concerns regarding privacy and personal data. the recent facebook hearings show a necessity to preserve our citizens rights and protect the confidence in today's digital truth of life. the european union passed a new regulation for data protection. i believe the united states and the european union should cooperate to find the right balance between innovation and ethics and harness the best of today's revolutions in digital data and artificial
8:21 am
intelligence. [applause] i believe facing inequalities to push policy coordination to review financial speculations and create mechanisms to protect the middle class. because our middle classes are the backbone of our democracies. [applause] i believe in building a better future for our children, which requires offering them a planet
8:22 am
that is habitable in 25 years. [applause] some people think that securing current industries and their jobs is more urgent than reforming our economies to meet the global challenge of climate change. i hear these concerns. but we must find a smooth transition to a new economy. because what is the meaning of
8:23 am
our life? if we work only destroying the planet once sacrificing the future of our children? what is the meaning of our life if our decision, our confused decision is to reduce the opportunities for our children or grandchildren? [applause] by polluting the oceans, not mitigating c 02 emissions and destroying our bio diversity, we are killing our planet. let us face it. there's no planet b. [applause]
8:24 am
on this issue, it may happen that we have disagreements between the united states and france. it may happen. like an old family. but that's only a short disagreement. we will have to face the same realities and we're just citizens of the same planet. we have to face it. some beyond, some short term disagreements. we have to work together with business leaders and local communities. let us work together in order to make our planet great again. and create new jobs and new opportunities. [applause]
8:25 am
and i'm sure one day the united states will come back and join the paris agreement. and i'm sure -- [applause] and i'm sure we can work together to fulfill with you the ambitions of the global compact on the environment. [applause] ladies and gentlemen, i believe in democracy. many of our forbearers will slain for the cause of freedom
8:26 am
and human rights. with the great inheritance they give us comes the responsibility to continue their mission in this new century and to preserve the values handed to us and assure that today's unprecedented innovations in science and technology remains the service of liberty and the preservation of our planet for the next generations. to protect our democracies, we have to fight against the ever-growing virus of fake news, which exposes our people to irrational fear and imaginary risk. [applause] and let me copyright the
8:27 am
expression for fake news, especially here. without reason, without truce, there's no real democracy. because democracy is about true choices and rationale decisions. the corruption of information is an attempt to corrode the very spirit of our democracies. [applause] we also have to fight against the terrorist propaganda that spreads fanaticism on the entire planet. [applause] it has a gripping inference on some of our citizens and children. i want this fight to be part of our bilateral commitments and your presence with this agenda,
8:28 am
i want to be part of this agenda because here again, it deeply harms our rights and shared values. the terrorist threats is even more dangerous when it's combined with a nuclear proliferation threat. we must be stricter than ever with countries seeking to acquire the nuclear bomb. that is why france supports fully the united states in its efforts to bring pyongyang to sanctions and make decisions towards denuclearization of the korean peninsula. [applause] as for iran, our objective is
8:29 am
clear. iran shall never possess any nuclear weapons. [applause] not now, not in five years, not in ten years, never. [applause] but this policy should never lead us to war in the middle east. [applause] we must ensure stability and respect sovereignty of the nation, including that one of iran, which represents
8:30 am
aggressive civilization. let us not replicate past mistakes in the region. let us not deny on what side. let us know create new wars on the other side. [applause] there is an existing frame work called the jcpoa to control the nuclear activity of iran. we signed it at the initiative of the united states. we signed it, both the united states and france. that is why we cannot say we should get rid of it like that. [applause]
8:31 am
but it is true to say that this agreement may not address all concerns and very important concerns. this is true. but we should not abandon it without having something substantial and more substantial instead. that is my position. [applause] that's why france will not leave the jcpoa. because we signed it. your president and your country will have to take in the current days and week its own responsibilities regarding this
8:32 am
issue. but what i want to do and what we decided together with your president is that we can work on a more comprehensive deal addressing all of his concerns. that is why we have to work on this more comprehensive deal based on four pillars. the substance of the existing agreement, especially if you decide to leave it. the past 20, 25 period, in order to be sure that we will never have any nuclear activity for iran. to containment of the military influence of the iranian regime in the region and the monitoring of ballistic activity. i think these four pillars the
8:33 am
one i address in front of the general assembly of the united nation last september are the one which cover the legitimate fears of the united states and our allies in the region. i think we have to started working now on this four pillars to build this new comprehensive deal and to be sure that whatever decision of the united states will be, we will not leave the floor to the absence of rule. we will not leave the floor to this conflict of powers in the middle east. we will not fuel ourselves an increasing tensions and potential war. that is my position. i think we can work together to build this comprehensive deal
8:34 am
for the whole region for our people because i think it fairly addresses our concerns. that's my position. [applause] and this containment, i mention in one of the pillars, the necessary in yemen, in lebanon, in iraq and also in syria building a sustainable peace that includes syria requires indeed that all powers in the region respect the sovereignty of its people and the diversity of its communities. in syria, we work very closely together. after prohibited weapons were
8:35 am
used against the population by the regime of bashar al-assad two weeks ago, the united states and france together with the united kingdom acted to destroy chemical facilities and to restore the credibility of the international community. this action was one of the best evidence of this strong military alliance. [applause] and i want to pay a special tribute for our soldiers because they did a very great job in this region and in this occasion. [applause] beyond this action, we will
8:36 am
together work for humanitarian solution on the short term, on the ground and contribute actively to a lasting political solution to put an end to this tragic conflict. i think one of the very important decisions we took together with president trump was precisely to include syria in this large frame work for the overall region and decide to work together on this political deal for syria, for syrian people even after our war against isis. terrorist networks span a footprint as large as europe. french and american con soldiers are confronting the same enemy and risking their lives together. here i would like to pay special tribute to the american soldiers
8:37 am
who are in the region and to their french comrades that lost their lives earlier this year. better than anyone i think our troops know what the alliance and friendship between our country means. [applause] i believe facing all of these challenges, all of these fears, all of this anger, our duty, our destiny is to work together and to build this new region. [applause] distinguished members of congress, ladies and gentlemen,
8:38 am
on april 25, 1960, it was affirmed in this chamber that nothing was as important to france as the reason, the resolution, the friendship of the great people of the united states. 58 years later, to this very day, i come here to convey the warmest feelings of the french nation and to tell you that our people cherish the friendship of the american people with as much intensity as ever. [applause] the united states and the american people are an essential
8:39 am
part of our confidence in the future, in democracy, in what women and men can accomplish in this world when we are driven by high ideals and an unbreakable trust in humanity and progress. today the call we hear is the call of history. this is a time of determination and courage. what we cherish is at stake. what we love is in danger. we have no choice but to prevail. and together we shall prevail. [applause]
8:40 am
[speaking french] long live the friendship between france and united states. [speaking french] [cheers & applause] thank you. thank you. [applause] thank you. thank you. [applause] thank you very much. [applause]

8:45 am
infection in houston. he tweeted out "my family and i think mayor sylvester turner, his terrific staff, houston police, metro houston sbc houston, st. martins and all houstonians for making us all feel so welcome for barbara." this is after he buried the former first lady in houston this week. >> julie: a legal challenge to the president's travel ban going before the supreme court today. the justices hearing arguments on the third version of the order and whether it violates the constitution by discrimination based on religion. shannon bream is reporting live. what did we hear in arguments today?
8:46 am
>> julie, they just wrapped up. i came out. as you would expect, there was discussion about whether the president's remarks when he was a candidate, whether that should factor in the ban. there were two bans. the third ban. they were all changed a little bit. the administration believed what they have now, the one being challenged here today, travel ban 3.0 has been tailored. they have added countries, taken them off. there's two, north korea and venezuela that have been added that are not muslim. that's been a question all along. the president has talked about muslim terrorists, the muslim ban idea. there was the question about whether the text of this ban now takes away those issues and whether you have to consider it on its face. most of the justices seem like they're interested in a holistic approach. where you're looking at everything the president has said. the other side arguing you can only go by the words. there's no religious animus there. justice alito asked if this is a
8:47 am
so-called muslim back, how come it impacts 8% of the muslim population? there were effective arguments and a lot of questions for both sides. >> julie: i understand there were light-hearted moments amid the tense arguments. what were they about? >> yeah, if you can believe that in something this controversial, there was a hypothetical example. the justices do this. justy kagan had one about this. that a president would take actions with something like this. they said -- there were arguments if that was realistic or not. say i'm talking about an out of the box president and the courtroom erupted into laughter. because the president is not traditional, he does things his way. later on there was a discussion about whether the powers properly belong to congress and whether they should get it done. the chief justice raising the
8:48 am
question saying what if let's just say congress couldn't get things done. again, that eliciting laugher in the courtroom. they're deadlocks on capitol hill. so lighter moments for a serious situation here, this is likely to be one of the last cases this term. it's the last argued, probably one of the last decisions in june. >> julie: shannon bream, thanks very much. yeah. what the congress doesn't get anything done. can you imagine that? >> jon: what a state the country would be in. more on the macron speech to the joint session of congress in a bit. first, macron said france plans to stay in the nuclear deal. what about the u.s.? arizona congressman mcsally joins us live next with her comments. you know what's awesome? gig-speed internet.
8:49 am
8:50 am
you know what's not awesome? when only certain people can get it. let's fix that. let's give this guy gig- really? and these kids, and these guys, him, ah. oh hello. that lady, these houses! yes, yes and yes. and don't forget about them. uh huh, sure. still yes! xfinity delivers gig speed to more homes than anyone. now you can get it, too. welcome to the party.
8:51 am
8:52 am
>> france will not leave the jcpoa because we signed it. your. and your country will have to take in the current days and weeks its own responsibilities regarding this issue. what i want to do and what we decided together with your president is that we can work on a more comprehensive deal. >> jon: so that's french president emmanuel macron addressing a joint meeting of congress as he wraps up his three-day stay visit. he talked about the iran nuclear deal as it looms over congress and the white house on how to
8:53 am
proceed. let's bring in martha mcsally. so the french president says france will stay in the deal. were you surprised to here that today? >> no. he's been on a strong campaign. i disagree. this is a crappy deal from the very beginning and president obama and all of his allies in congress that voted for it really set us up for this situation where if you even listen to the french president, he's talking about how its missing the other pillars. the ballistic missile activity, the activity in the region and the fact that there's a sunset clause. so sounds like it's got 25% of what he's looking for. that's a failing grade. so president trump has some difficult decisions in fronts of him. i don't want to get in front of his role as a commander this chief and he's working with our allies here. this is a crappy deal to start with. obama and his allies in congress set us up for this. >> jon: the iranians have said
8:54 am
that if president trump would walk away from the deal, they would feel freed to walk away from the deal as well. is this a good idea? >> we shouldn't be bullied by dictatorships and people that are threatening. that's not the way we do business. as president trump as the leader of the free world and having peace and strength needs to make sure he fights for our vital national interests around the world and the region. we're not going to be bullied around. this is ensuring that iran stops their maligned activity in the region, syria, iraq and other places and other places around the world. their ballistic missile development, the cash that was infused to them by the obama administration by this crappy deal and how they have been using it to kill people and terroristic activities around the world. there's no access in the deal to the military installations and sunsetting in 2025. so this, again, was a horrible decision by the obama
8:55 am
administration. didn't even bring it to congress like a treaty. president trump is working through his options moving forward. >> in some ways, the horse is already out of the barn before the doors are closed. the iranians have the cash. the money that was freed up in their frozen assets is now in their hands. so at this point, are the president's hands somewhat tied? >> i don't think they are. we've tried so hard. i spoke out and leading on this issue. i voted to stop this deal from happening. because you're right. we were strengthening and tightening up the vice grip on iran. it was just starting to hurt and they let the pressure off and gave them the cash and everything they needed with this deal that sucks. so president trump is now inherited it. he's working with his allies. he does have some decisions by may 12. we're working closely with him in congress to move forward and our objectives neat to be met. iran can never have a nuclear weapon. they have to stop funding
8:56 am
terrorism. they need to stop threatening israel and tom ballistic missiles. we need to use our national power with our allies in order to make sure that happens. >> meantime, oil is $75 a bail over concerns about the iran deal. what do you say to constituents that are going to be paying higher gas prices? >> oh, look, we're on a pass to energy independence in north america for this very reason. i deployed to the middle east six times. i know first hand the challenges and the dangers in that region. we need in parallel to not be held hostage by the dynamics in that region with our energy independence and we need to give the president the space to makes sure he protects our interest and our country and its citizens which is the role of the federal government. >> jon: congresswoman martha mcsally, thank you. >> thank you. >> julie: justices consider the first time whether president trump's ban on travelers from several muslim countries
8:57 am
violates immigration law or the constitution. the latest on the argues ahead on "outnumbered." but do you take something for your brain. with an ingredient originally found in jellyfish, prevagen is the number one selling brain-health supplement in drug stores nationwide. prevagen. the name to remember. when it comes to travel, i sweat the details. late checkout... ...down-alternative pillows... ...and of course, price. tripadvisor helps you book a... ...hotel without breaking a sweat. because we now instantly... over 200 booking sites find you the lowest price... ...on the hotel you want. don't sweat your booking. tripadvisor.

>> jon: thanks for joining us. >> julie: "outnumbered" starts now. >> the u.s. supreme court hearing arguments on president trump's travel ban. the administration is offering the courts have no role to play with this because the president has broad powers over immigration and national security. critics say it discriminates against muslims. now it's up to the justices to decide. this is "outnumbered." we have melissa francis with us here today. fox news analyst, marie hart. joining us in the center seat, judge andrew napolitano. he's outnumbered. i've heard, why is h
