>> president trump, russian president vladimir putin spending the speaked -- weekend ready for helsinki. >> vice-president pence spending time in the midwest helping to ease fears from farmers and business owners over an expanding list of terrorists. >> we'll get the latest on the children and families separated at the border. leland: afternoon now in scotland where the president is
9:01 am
golfing. welcome to america's news headquarters from washington, i'm leland vittert. elizabeth: a busy weekend after a busy week. i'm elizabeth prann. on the latest leg of his tumultuous international tour, president trump facing demonstrations on his own golf course. kevin joins us with the latest. hi, kevin. >> great to be with you. continuing his beautiful u.k. trip here in picturesque scotland not far from where we are here. the president is at his private course over at turnberry. yes, in between phone calls and meetings he'll get in a few rounds on the link. and the president has been hearing from protesters as he makes his way around the course at his private course at turnberry. this, as literally hundreds of protesters gathered, not just along the course, but also in nearby edinboro to voice opposition to the president's arrival here in beautiful
9:02 am
scotland. although, i think to be fair, folks, the crowds were clearly much, much smaller than those we saw in london yesterday, although i think it's also fair to say no less passionate. the president nonplussed and not bothered out on the course by it. in fact he's been up and on twitter already today talking about a number of issues, including the economy. let me just share this. i think you'll find this interesting because this sort of speaks to the president's mood and mindset that even though he's here and he's talking about different things happening here in europe and obviously trade and n.a.t.o. and getting ready for that meeting with president putin of russia, he's keeping an eye on the u.s. economiment he said this, the stock market hit 25,000 yesterday. jobs at an all-time record and that's before we fix some of the worst trade deals and conditions ever seen by any government it's all happening. this, of course, as he continues the preparation for the big meeting monday in helsinki. we'll have coverage in scotland and take you there.
9:03 am
back to you. elizabeth: kevin corke ahead of a very busy weekend. thank you so much. leland: the president tweeting ahead of his golf game today, blaming the obama administration for not taking action against 12 russian intelligence agencies who were indicted yesterday for allegedly hacking e-mails during the 2016 election. gillian turner joining us now with the accusations against these 12 intelligence agents and against the obama administration. hi, gillian. >> hey, leland. in a new 29-page indictment the doj released yesterday, the russia special counsel draws a direct link between vladimir putin and election meddling. it charges 12 military officers with conspiring to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. specifically, they're accused of hacking e-mails in the clinton campaign and the doc. and the deputy general and white house pointing out one particular fact of indictment,
9:04 am
the fact it doesn't say any americans committed any crimes. and it's highly unlikely that they'll extradite for the accusations. >> and there's another opportunity, using interpol, the 12 on others indicted from russia, red notice them so anytime they travel anywhere, takely with one of our allies, these intel officials could be apprehended and then transferred to the united states for full prosecution. >> the deputy attorney general offering a message of bipartisanship. >> we confront foreign interference in american elections, it's important for us to avoid thinking politically as republicans or democrats, instead to think patriotically as americans. >> in the wake of the indictments released, condemnation of the administration's handling of election meddling has been swift
9:05 am
and, indeed, bipartisan. >> these indictments are clear proof that the russian investigation is not a witch hunt. >> my hope would be that the president and his allies would cease and desist from calling the mueller investigation a witch hunt. >> in a statement from senior republican senator john mccain says, quote, despite repeated warnings from our nation's top intelligence and military leaders the kremlin's efforts to weaken our institutions have run unabated without specific action taken by the administration. now, this special bombshell, this special counsel bombshell comes two and a half days before president trump is slated to meet with putin one-on-one in helsinki. it's a high stakes summit with top national security issues on the agenda, but now many democrats are calling for president trump to cancel it in response to this very indictment. leland. leland: so far no news from the white house on that. seems unlikely democrats will get their wish. gillian turner here in d.c.
9:06 am
gillian, thanks. liz has a lot more. elizabeth: that's right, the indictments of those russian intelligence officials are making waves ahead of president trump's meeting with russian president vladimir putin. for more let's bring in florida congressman. thank you for joining us. we heard gillian say there is a slew of democrats wanting him to cancel the meeting and a tweet from senator john mccain. if president trump is not willing to hold putin accountabl accountable-- >> i think it would be a disruptive and bold move if the president scratched as soon as he heard about the indictments and even made the announcement himself. he would have put putin back on his hind legs. >> so cancel the summit and announcement the indictment. >> now that it's over, and we're where we are now, he needs to go through with the meeting and make if firm with putin we're against the nordstrom pipeline, and reinforce our commitment to
9:07 am
n.a.t.o. and not put up with this stuff. elizabeth: hindsight is 20/20 because that sounds a lot like what we're hearing from the majority of democrats is cancel it. you say don't scratch it, we're here, we're on the road and he sort of missed an opportunity in your opinion. moving forward, how has that changed the dynamic of the meeting that will happen? >> well, you can look at it the other way, this gives him an opportunity to face-to-face get in-- get right at putin's face and make sh clear how upset we are what russia has been doing and disappointed we are that obama couldn't deal with it and how ready he is to deal with it. elizabeth: a lot of republicans like you say it needs to move forward and to happen. do you trust him to ask the tough questions? >> one thing that we can say about president trump he's willing to ask hard questions and do difficult things. elizabeth: the relationship though, they haven't been able to really get to know each other. i mean, obviously, this is really a meeting of two people who are into branding, right?
9:08 am
they're very conscious of their image. so, going forward, how does he sort of maneuver that relationship? >> it's going to be very interesting. it's kind of like the immoveable object. and it's important to president trump be a-- >> they're not equals. the united states is a super power and a lot of people are critical of the meeting in the sense that they don't want to treat russia as if it's on equal footing. what is your opinion of that? >> i think that the russia economy is about as big as indiana's. elizabeth: they are a nuclear power. >> they're a nuclear power, but we're a demographically and socially debilitated nation. elizabeth: i'm curious what the president wants out of it. the specifically the ukraine and syria. >> i've wrote an op-ed a while back.
9:09 am
we need to make sure that putin understands that the price is going up for aggression. he's not going to get away with hedging aggression without paying a higher price than the last eight years and there's a new sheriff in town and that's president trump. elizabeth: okay. so, that and then, syria as well. because everyone's saying, listen, you need to get iran out of syria. that's not going to happen. >> if anybody's going to do it is russia. elizabeth: are they? >> can russia and would russia? i don't know. if we could cut a deal that we stay in syria like ambassador boulton suggested, at least on the border, but russia went away from iran and abandoned the hezbollah iranian access, it would be an interesting maneuver. elizabeth: is there a ripple effect when we talk about iran? because then you see the relationship impacted between israel and iran. >> it's very complicated right now. there's just an article in the paper. i forget the wall street journal or the post this morning about the iranians knocking the palestinians because they
9:10 am
related to the israelis. and the people in iran are, i think, losing patience with the corrupt, expensive and distracted regime of the mullahs. elizabeth: my last question to you is, your overall expectations, do you have a positive feeling of the meeting this weekend? >> if president trump will do the kind of things that he's done with north korea to putin, i think we could have a positive outcome and maybe change the perception curve. because the perception cur of the last eight years, putin can do what he wants, poison who he wants, take crimea, beat up on them and the whole bit and we've got to make sure he pays a price for that. elizabeth: thank you for joining us, congressman. we'll see what happens this weekend. busy. and be sure to tune in tomorrow. and chris wallace, check your local channel or time.
9:11 am
and ahead of the bilateral talks, that all starts tomorrow at 11th -- 11 a.m. eastern. leland: a trip comes as the president's loyal supporters feel the pain of the promised trade war. no mar is that more true than in farm states like iowa and nebraska. >> our administration will never stop fighting for american agriculture. we will stand with american farmers 100%. leland: joining us now with a little bit of perspective from farm country, kansas city radio host pete mundo. nice to see you, appreciate it. how much leeway does farmers throughout missouri, kansas, nebraska, give the president as they keep getting pinched in the wallet? >> leland, great to be with you. and the answer is, is a lot.
9:12 am
we don't know what that line exactly is between when the farmer's going to sit there and say i've had enough of the tariffs because my costs are going up. the reality is the margin for the farmers is not much. they can't just put the tariff on the consumer right now. they're in a very difficult spot, but because of the overwhelming support for this president, he does have at least a little bit more leeway with these tariffs to see whether or not, you know, he can actually get free and fair trade with china. leland: i keep hearing from staunch republican senators and congress m congressmen in some of these states, they're worried come november, if things don't get better, support for the president by these members of congress, is going to become a liability, rather than a strength. >> well, leland, take it from mike pence's perspective. waste in kansas city this week and it was half rally, half fundraiser, that's what he was
9:13 am
here for. he was here for congressman kevin yoder on the kansas side and you think of kansas an a deep red state. no doubt it is, but at the same time the third district of kansas where yoder is running for reelection is a district that was very, very much slightly in favor of hillary clinton by about a point. so he's got to be careful there in terms of what's going on and in terms of whether or not that is something that he can win and he can get reelection for. so, it's going to be interesting to see what happens. there's a missouri senate race against claire mccaskill is a total, total firestorm right now. josh hawley is at the top and there's a lot of grass roots guys, austin peterson, tony min netty and on down. and there's a strong grass roots movement in missouri that wants to see one of those candidates challenge josh hawley in the primary next month. whether or not that happens remains to be seen, but the missouri senate race to go up against claire mccaskill who used raised $4 million is going object out of control. leland: as you look at each one of the races that you talked to,
9:14 am
whether in kansas city, whether in missouri, how much of them are becoming a referendum on president trump as a pick to people to represent them. >> it's not a referendum on president trump. they want the best candidate to go up against claire mccaskill. leland: i'm not talking about the primary. i'm talking in the general as it shapes up for november. >> it's still going to be mostly about if the republicans can get the extra seat in the senate. it's not really about whether or not it's a referendum on president trump. i don't see that being the case at all. his support remains incredibly overwhelming in both of these states from his staunch basin his staunch supporters. the people that don't like him, still don't like him. it's know the different from a few months ago. that hasn't changed it's just making sure that grass roots and the bases rally around the primaries and turn people out to beat a claire mccaskill in
9:15 am
missouri. leland: we've seen the president turn out folks in the primaries. whether or not he can in generals remain to be seen. you have the issue of the tariffs and the economy and next what the president is dealing with overseas, russia. the latest fox news poll, president trump on russia, 5% say he's too tough. 53% say he's not tough enough. and just enough-- i grew up in missouri, it's become a dark red state and a hawkish state in terms of u.s. foreign policy. is this something on mind of trump supporters. or as you point out, they're willing to give the president a little more leash? >> i think when it comes to putin, they're willing to give more leash on this, leland. trump won by 20 points. leland: when you talk to people and they call in, what are their red lines? >> i think the hope here and what i hear from people on the
9:16 am
ground and on the show, ultimately, if he is going to be-- if the president is going to be a bull in the china shop with some of our allies, germany, theresa may. then he better be a bull in the china shop with russia as well and i think that america wants to see as well. and they're happy-- >> is there any reason to think he's going to be a bull in a china shop with our allies, with n.a.t.o., canada, justin trudeau and others. the time that he sat down with vladimir putin before, not a bull in a china shop. and a meeting with kim jong-un was a love fest. when was he a bull in a china shop with president xi with china or anything else? >> based on the 12 indictments we now have proof and a lot of of us knew already that we had this case, all right, russia did meddle in the elections, even though it involved the dnc they
9:17 am
were involved in our elections. you've got to have him go in there and he has to be that tough guy. we didn't see that with kim jong-un, but after the past week you've got to hope and believe that we'll get some of that with putin on monday. leland: we shall all be watching on monday and you will be there to talk about t i bet they'll be talking about it over barbecue at arthur bryants, too, huh? >> anytime. joe's barbecue, kck, whatever you want, leland. leland: thanks, my friend. liz. elizabeth: children five and older are now the focus of efforts to reunite families separated at the border. we'll find out if the trump administration is on track to meet a july 26th court mandated deadline. plus, hawaii's big island volcano is still erupting and it's so hot it's creating its own weather system. including this whirlwind funnel cloud. and we all remember frank sinatra's first love, and the mother of his children, nancy

9:22 am
near hawaii's kilauea volcano. it's formed a cone of cinder and spatter that's now 180 feet tall. scientists at university of hawaii says that's cones are common when lava goes up and back down, but scary, nonetheless. leland: the trump administration says they are working around the clock to reunite families separated after coming to the united states illegally. that's not fast enough for democrat dan springer, following this from the west coast. hi, dan. >> hey, leland and that's the politics of it all. the trump administration, however, is making significant progress in reuniting immigration children with their parent and apparently that was acknowledged by a federal judge in san diego late saturday afternoon. district court judge said that the government demonstrated good faith and has largely complied with the deadline this week to
9:23 am
reunite children under five with their parents who had crossed the border illegally, many of them seeking asylum. the judge says there has been substantial compliance and now all of those very young kids eligible to be back with their parents are out of federal custody and back with their families. the trump administration meantime, also rolled out a plan to comply with the next deadline, which is to have the remainder of the children who are between the ages of five and 17 reunited with their families by july 26th. the goal is to reconnect 200 kids per day with a parents or guardian. the federal judge says he will be monitoring the efforts to make sure it happens. >> now that the court has made clear it's going to stay on top of the government and stressed yesterday -- tuesday repeatedly that the goals are not aspirational, i am going to remain hopeful for now that this will get done. >> meanwhile, secretary of state, mike pompeo and others in the trump administration got
9:24 am
sort of a tongue lashing from mexico's president while they met in mexico city yesterday to talk about trade issues. president pena-nieto told that mexicans have great worry for the more than 2,000 children separated from their parents at the border. to highlight the other side, police arrested a 32-year-old man in california who had attacked his wife with a chain saw in front of their three children. the department of homeland security says that alejandro viegas was deported many times. >> we keep hearing from the administration that they'll highlight the stories like the one you just did. dan springer in seattle. thanks. liz. elizabeth: frank sinatra's first wife and mother to his three children has died. nancy and frank sinatra were teenagers when they married

9:30 am
liz. when secretary mattis met with his counterparts, he did not mention russia by name. on board his plane he called russia out my name days before the president is set to meet vladimir putin. >> russia factors in as a destabilizing element. they have chosen to come in and to undermine the democratic fabric of nations that are young in their democratic processes. >> a new fox news poll this week shows that they think that president trump has been too soft on russia, but approve of the july meeting with russia. and a majority thinks that the president is not tough enough on russia. dan coates spoke after the justice department announced the indictment of 12 military
9:31 am
officials hacking into the dnc. and escalating cyber attacks on u.s. infrastructure ahead of the midterm elections. >> the warning lights are blinking red again. today the digital infrastructure that serves this country is literally under attack. every day foreign actors, the worst offenders being russia, china, iran, and north korea, every day they are penetrating our digital infrastructure and conducting a range of cyber intrusions and attacks against targets in the united states. >> the u.s. intelligence director warned russia has been the most aggressive foreign actor in terms of cyber attacks against the u.s. he accused russia of continuing to undermine u.s. democracy adding, quote, we're just one click away on the keyboard from a similar situation repeating itself, a reference to the 2016 election hack. the justice department
9:32 am
indictment says half a million u.s. voters had their data stolen by the russia military intelligence hacker who managed to get into various state election boards. elizabeth: jennifer with the greatest. thank you so much. leland. leland: the issue of russia is certainly on everyone's mind. thursday, this is as republicans and democrats still arguing who won last week's battle royale during fbi's peter strzok's testimony. and here is andrew, and payton. nice to see you both. rob, i guess in a sense you go back and you look at the tape and then move forward to what we have today and both republicans and democrats have clips that they can play all the way through the election. >> yeah, there's a lot of content there. i mean, we had nine to ten hours of testimony. i think this is a win for democrats in an i with a that we were able to get out the full dialog. a lot of networks are cherry picking bits and pieces.
9:33 am
i'm glad the americans got to listen to the full tape and both both sides. i think that was a win for us in that case. leland: certainly the one piece of tape, brie, that everybody is talking about is louie gohmert's time at the microphone. >> i've talked to fbi agents around the country and you've embarrassed them and embarrassed yourself and i can't help, but wonder when i see you there with a little smirk, how many times did you look so innocent into your wife's eyes and lie to her about-- >> mr. chairman, it's outrageous. leland: brie, that plays pretty well with the republican base. does it play well with suburban women independents? >> well, at the end of the day, peter strzok did have an affair with another colleague and he was doing this in his capacity as the top investigator in both hillary clinton and investigations into donald trump, you know, and he
9:34 am
repeatedly denied the fact that this would put him in a compromising position, that this would open his work to other-- >> let's step back from that in terms of what happened at the hearing. let's now move forward. we've got video of lisa page there walking through. that was strzok's liaison, shall we say, at the fbi. where does this go in terms of that clip continuing to play for gohmert coming up to the general? >> yeah, i mean, personally i don't think that that makes louie gohmert look any better. i think this entire hearing was a loss for everyone. for one, there's no new information, and shows how the doj has been stonewall alling whether they botched or handled both investigations. lose for the fbi, lose for the doj and a loss for republicans. in a number of instances i think the republicans took the line of questioning too far and i think that they were unable to hold
9:35 am
order throughout that committee hearing and also, looks bad for democrats because they-- at one point a democratic congressman literally told peter strzok that he should be awarded a purple heart. i think that everyone loses and looks bad. leland: rob, quickly, the purple heart comment, that may play well with the base. does it play well with the midterm? >> i'm a veteran. that certainly didn't go well for me. it was sensational and made the gripping of the good tv. by and large i'm glad we got the message out we should not be attacking the very people that are protecting our laws and our democracy. leland: yeah, that was certainly the-- >> more concerned-- >> moving on though to what jennifer griffin was just talking about. dan coates the director of national intelligence appointed by president trump saying we are missing the warning lights that are blinking red and then the president tweeting, in ternms o
9:36 am
what the russians did during the dnc, the story you heard about the 12 russians took place during the obama administration, why didn't they do something about it, especially when president obama was enveloped by the fbi in november before the election? as much as democrats are pounding the table, trump-russia, trump russia-trump-russia, the democrats didn't do anything about it. >> yes, they did, it was a terrible mistake. i think if hillary were to win, i think they didn't want the issue of russia and collusion to come out. i think that everyone thought she was going to win and here we are. we know we have it, we've got russians were involved and meddling in our way of democracy and now we're trying to play catchup and we missed an opportunity when we needed to the most. leland: brie, this does seem to be a part of president trump's
9:37 am
continued defense, if you want to say, attack, if you want to say, as it relates to the mueller investigation, which was wait a second, democrats didn't do anything about it and now they're screaming bloody murder about it. how do republicans continue to exploit that? >> i think that they don't really have to work hard to do that, right? i think that democrats are doing their jobs for them when they're saying things like, you know, peter strzok should be awarded a purple heart and other comments like that. i think that republicans don't really have to get dirty, don't have to get down in the weeds and behave like louie gohmert. they can step back and say, look, democrats are defending them even though the russians were indicted for hacking the democratic committee in the 2016 election. they don't seem to be bo nerd by that or screaming at the fbi for not investigating that. they don't have to work that hard in this case. leland: robin, where is the outrage from democrats on the points that you just brought up. you don't hear that in the hearing. you don't hear the pounding of the tables, saying, these things
9:38 am
and certainly, if ut tables were turned, one can imagine that if peter strzok had sent messages calling hillary clinton terrible, that they would have been pounding the table saying, wait a second, this is why all of a sudden, comey came out so late, talking about the e-mails, the fbi is to blame. >> you're right. a great point. and this goes both ways. where is the republican outrage right now that a foreign adversary was trying to affects our way of democracy. that's my question, as patriots, we all love americans and we're patriots. this is not a partisan issue, it's an american one. leland: that's an interesting point. brie, do americans have an exposed flanks in their attempts and goals to defend president trump on this, they get in the way of going after russia for what was undeniably bad acts against the american interests and american democracy? >> no, i think that the
9:39 am
indictment, rod rosen stein was very clear in the indictment when he said everyone being indicted are all russian agents. that there was no cloeollusion-- shoo we don't hear a lot of outrage over republicans. the party line seems to be focused on it doesn't say anything about collusion, oh, it's just 12 russians, versus saying we need to be tough on russia because of that. >> i think because we knew that's what happened, in 2016. leland: because we knew it does it make it right? >> no, no one is saying it makes it right. i'm saying it's know the surprising, this is something we've known all along. we're finally indicting these people two years later and good we should be doing that and we should be outraged. leland: the indictments don't mean much. i don't think that vladimir putin is going to hand them over and the president will bring them home on air force one in handcuffs. and there's a difference with them standing up and pounding the table, we're not going to let russia do this.
9:40 am
we don't have that. >> we don't have evidence that they interfered and messed with the election. and that's what rod rosenstein said yesterday, there's no evidence that this affected the outcome of the election. we do know 12 people hacked the dnc and other russian agents tried to hack other things and spread misinformation. things we've known all along. the fact that he reaffirmed that this didn't affect the integrity of the election i think says a lot. leland: we'll see if it's enough for the voters. at least a majority of americans say they want president trump to be tougher on russia. appreciate it, thanks so much. >> thank you. >> thank you, leland. elizabeth: n.a.t.o. nations have a vested interest in what develops from president trump's meeting with vladimir putin. how the meeting could have a big impact on the military alliance. and, well, she's back, folks. hillary clinton's blasting president trump's supreme court pick. what she says about brett kavanaugh. >> let me say a word about the nomination of judge kavanaugh to

election. what putin has said in the past is he very carefully uses phrases like, my government has not been involved in your election meddling. meaning that possibly some russian hackers were, but i've got no control over that. the gru answers to who? to putin. put the proof on the table in front of him. let him tell his lie first and then say, well, mr. president, i'd like to show you some evidence of what we have. and based on this evidence right now, we're either going to reset the relationship between you and me and our country, and you're going to stop this maligned behavior undermining democracy and stop military intervention and curb your behavior dramatically or we are going to not have a relationship that's positive. it's going to get worse and it's bad now as it was in the reagan-gorbachev era during their summit. elizabeth: so hopefully no
9:47 am
misspelling on the reset button. is there an ang advantage there, a, going into the meeting and how does he use that on the heels of a positive n.a.t.o. meeting. when he left the g-7 summit meeting, we had the negative-- sort of the back and forth with trudeau and there's a much more positive vibe going into this meeting. am i right? >> yeah. look it, the n.a.t.o. summit largely successful. the principal reason that they've all agreed, not only to meet the objective of the 2%, which they had done once before in 2014, but if many of the countries, to accelerate it and there already has been acceleration as the president noted multiple times from 33, $34 billion in the last year. now, listen, if that doesn't translate into what truly needs to be done it's not going to mean a lot. what we need is enhanced military capabilities, and we need to build deterrents in
9:48 am
eastern europe against intimidation of the eastern europeans. they want to break the alliance, and they're going to stress test us. we have to impose costs on the potential russian intervention by putting more troops out there. n.a.t.o. forces and u.s. forces and that means more capability and hopefully the increase in the budget will be able to do that, but here is the issue for putin. he doesn't know if the n.a.t.o. countries have the political and moral will to truly stand up against him. that's a fact. i have my reservations about it, quite frankly, with the feckless leaders we have in europe, but if we put that capability out there, that demonstrates political and moral will and he'll get that message and that will really be the payoff of this summit in terms of increased money for increased military capability and a better deterrent. elizabeth: and that means on the heels of this positive summit, an increase of those n.a.t.o.
9:49 am
exercises in the balkan region as well? >> oh, yeah. elizabeth: that would be more of a physical force for him to see. and obviously, there's already sanctions on russia. >> we have to deploy forces there and keep them there in those countries and the cost that would be imposed on him if he tries to move into the countries as he is in crimea, ukraine and georgia, there would be a cost too great to do that and also demonstrate to him that n.a.t.o. now has the resolve to respond militarily or else we wouldn't be putting those forces there. elizabeth: i'm getting the wrap, but my interpretation is that you do feel as if the united states has an upper hand going into this meeting? >> oh, yeah, putin really wants this meeting. elizabeth: for a myriad of reasons. >> yeah, and plus he's had success at manipulating american presidents. he's got the confidence he can manipulate this one. elizabeth: we're not so sure about that. general jack keane, thank you. >> good talking to you. elizabeth: you as well, leland. leland: hillary clinton sounding
9:50 am
off about president trump's supreme court pick. how republicans are responding. plus, a warning for some florida beach goers. yeah. there's those guys. they're attacking. we'll tell you where when we come back. jean woke up with knee pain. but she's got work to do. so she took aleve this morning. if she'd taken another pain reliever, she'd be stopping for more pills by now. only aleve has the strength to stop tough pain for up to 12 hours with just one pill. tylenol can't do that. get all day minor arthritis pain relief with an easy open cap. man: it takes a lot of work to run this business, but i really love it. i'm on the move all day long, and sometimes i don't eat the way i should.

>> welcome back. hillary clinton yesterday slamming president trump's supreme court pick. republicans fighting back. lauren green in new york as more democrats are on deck this weekend to speak at the same conference mrs. clinton was at. hi, lauren. >> absolutely, leland. thank you so much. you know, hillary clinton is the latest to add her voice to the chorus of democrats vehemently opposing president trump's supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh. the former secretary of state gave a fiery 25-minute speech to the federation of teacher's union. she credited him with other change in the last century and a half. >> this nomination holds out the
9:55 am
threats of devastating consequences for workers' rights, civil rights, lbgt rights, women's rights, including those to make our own health decisions. i used to worry that they wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950's. now i worry they want to turn it back to the 1850's. >> in the meantime, democrats are working hard to sink trump's supreme court nominee and started with an ad campaign to convince all in the party to vote no, but despite the democratic vitriol, republicans, who control the senate, may only need a party line vote to make them the next supreme court justice. mitch mcconnell looks to get the job done before the midterm elections. >> the timetable for supreme court justices, if we stuck to that timetable, and i intend to, would give us an opportunity to get this new justice on the
9:56 am
court by the 1st of october. >> you know, although no date has been set for the supreme court confirmation hearings to begin, mcconnell expects they will start in late august or early september and then kavanaugh could be confirmed in time for the high court's new term, which is october 1st. leland. leland: all right, lauren green in new york. we'll monitor that conference and see what bernie sanders and elizabeth warren have to say. liz. elizabeth: in the next hour of america's news headquarters, hundreds of demonstrators gather in scotland to protest president trump's visit. our own kevin corke is there. he'll have a story for us coming up after the break.
9:57 am
9:58 am
9:59 am
10:00 am
leland: hour two of america's news headquarters. i'm leland vittert. elizabeth: vladimir putin and president trump prepare for their historic meeting in hell helsinki monday. president trump is preparing for the big day in scotland. leland: fallout from hearings on capitol hill. republican congressmen who grilled peter strzok is here as well as a democratic congressman to defend his people. elizabeth: and we'll take a closer look at the escalating trade fight with china over tariffs and how that's affecting
10:01 am
american businesses. leland: 1:00 now eastern, that's 6:00 p.m. over in scotland where president trump is at his hotel on the coast. we're told he's playing a little golf and preparing for his meeting with vladimir putin. the president's visit to the united kingdom sparked what you might call massive protests, some folks each made it out onto the golf course to protest the president while he was on the links. kevin cork live in glasgow where it is very late and light at 6:00 p.m. in the evening, hi, kevin. >> reporter: good to be with you. free speech of course the cornerstone of any democracy. we heard plenty of competing voices in scotland since the president made his way up here from the other part of the u.k. in england. and those voice as you pointed out were actually being heard right there out on the golf course where the president was taking in a few of his favorite past times, he loves to get out
10:02 am
there on links. it's not illegal for the folks to make their way near the golf course. there's security to keep them off the links. you can go right up in there and see the president golfing and he can hear them. he did some waving at some of the protesters. that despite the tranquility of the beauty, you saw the signs and the chanting from the assembled locals. this is after a couple of lengthy days of meetings after the past couple days in england and away from larger protests in scotscotland and the massive testimony strappingses that we saw over da -- demonstration that's we saw over in london. the focus hasn't been just on nato, the u.k., and finland, the meeting with putin, he's got his attention on the homeland. let me take you to twitter and share something the president tweeted this morning. fans of the president will say this does not surprise us. the president has been talking about this at length.
10:03 am
on twitter he talked about the stock market. it hit 25,000 yesterday he said, jobs at an all-time record. it is all happening. of course that with record low unemployment for african americans, for hispanics, decades low unemployment numbers for women, soon to be historic as the president pointed out on a number of occasions. there still those be preparation for the -- still those be preparation for the meeting in helhelsinki. we'll watch it out from here in scotland where it's incredibly beautiful. back to you, leland. leland: amy kellogg in moscow, she'll give us an update on what president putin is up to in his prepresentations. haven't heard he's a golfer many maybe he likes something else in the outdoors. kevin, thanks. elizabeth: the white house is rejecting calls from leading members of congress to cancel president trump's meeting with vladimir putin on monday.
10:04 am
following the 12 new indictments that charge russian government officials with interfering in the presidential election. jillian turner is here with the latest. hi, jillian. >> the latest on that, a new 29 page indictment, the doj released it yesterday. the russia special council draws a direct link between vladimir putin's government and election meddling. 12 military intel officers are charged with conspiring to interfere with the presidential election. they're accused of hacking and releases e-mails from the clinton campaign and the dnc. the white house taking care to point out one feature of the indictment, the fact it doesn't include accusations that any american citizen committed any crime. experts say the reality is the russians are highly unlikely to extradite any of their officials to the u.s. for prosecution. >> there is another alternative and that is to red notice using interpol the 12 and the others
10:05 am
too that have been indicted from russia, red notice them so any time they travel anywhere, particularly with one of our allies, these intel officials could be apprehended and then transferred to the united states for full prosecution. >> the deputy attorney general offering a message of bipartisanship. >> we confront foreign interference in american elections, it's important for us to avoid thinking politically as republicans or democrats and instead to think patriotically as americans. >> in the wake of the indictments released condemnation of the administration's an handling ofe election has been swift and bipartisan. >> these indictments are clear proof that the russian investigation is not a witch hunt. >> my hope would be that the president and his allies would cease and desist from calling the mueller investigation a witch hunt. >> reporter: and from senior republican senator john mccain, a statement that says
10:06 am
in part, quote, despite repeated warnings from our national nation's top intelligence and military leaders, the kremlin's efforts to weaken our institutions have continued unabated with insufficient action taken by the administration. this special council bombshell comes two and-a-half days before president trump's slated to meet with putin one on one in hell kinsey. it's -- helsinki. it's a high stake summit. now, many democrats are calling for president trump to cancel in response to this indictment, liz. elizabeth: jillian turner with the late e. they wanted to cancel it but it's not getting canceled. thank you so much. appreciate it. leland: the indictments showing more evidence of what happened during the obama administration and the 2016 elections. also, new questions about what if anything the obama administration did to stop it. president trump tweeting about that fact just this morning and now democrats are facing some tough questions.
10:07 am
take a listen to cnn's jake tapper. >> you read the indictment and you think the obama administration, they really missed the ball on this. yes, they issued that report but president obama said, what did he say, he told putin to cut it out or knock it off. it wasn't particularly strong. in retrospect doesn't it seem perhaps the obama administration was to a degree asleep at the switch. leland: bring is congressman dan killdee. fair critique there? >> i think obviously in trough expect we all -- retrospect we wish there was firmer action against the russians. it felt as if the administration was attempting to look as if they were not introducing this subject in the middle of the campaign. to be fair, in december of 2016 the obama administration did put forward some pretty robust
10:08 am
sanctions which congress eventually took up and passed in 2017. leland: does it seem a little bit more like sour grapes when a democratic administration knew about this and made a political decision not to talk about russian meddling back in september of 2016 when they knew about it and now all democrats want to talk about is russian meddling with the election. it seems like shall we say convenient logic. >> the problem is this. everybody seems to see all of this through a electoral politics. i think we've got to get rid of that. what we're focused on -- leland: the obama administration did see it through electoral politics. >> i agree. the point is we are here today looking at russians who continue to try to meddle in our elections. i think there's plenty of criticism for democrats and republicans looking in the rear view mirror. but right now as president trump is about to go into a one on one
10:09 am
face-to-face conversation with vladimir putin, i think we need to be very focused and i would hope that the president will put this bill of indictment in front of president putin and say look, i'm not going to take all of this nonsense about well, we didn't do this. we know you did and now we have to have a serious conversation about how we stop this. i hope -- i'm not one who is calling for the president to cancel his conversation. what i'm calling for him to do is to make good use of it. leland: okay. so you and a lot of other people. we had a pretty conservative radio host on a couple hours ago, about an hour ago who said exactly the same thing, that he expects, his listeners demand the president be tougher with rush sha, about 50 -- 50% of the american public agrees with you. it brings up an important point in terms of what democrats are talking about in terms of how unified their voice is. you have a certain position here. other members of your caw sus ct so much. take you back to thursday's
10:10 am
hearing with peter strzok. here's congressman cohen talking about the hearing. >> if i could give you a purple heart, i would. you deserve one. this has been an attack on you and a way to attack mr. mueller and the investigation. leland: does comments like that from democrats make it harder to have the moral authority if you will for congressmen like you who say we need the president to be tougher? >> yeah, i mean, i disagree with that at the samat the samestate. i don't think the fbi performed well during 2016. i don't think anybody should just defend them. i do believe we shouldn't paint with such a broad brush and impugn the integrity of all of the law enforcement folks, impugn the integ i did a inly af rod rosenstein. leland: do the democrats think
10:11 am
if there's somebody that's attacking trump, that's good for me, nobody can call balls and strikes anymore? >> we're trying to paint this in black and white terms. yeah, mr. strzok clearly made some mistakes and was taken off the team as a result of that. but that does not mean that you can draw the conclusion that that -- that republicans can say there's some deep state conspiracy ongoing. leland: fair to say that if this had been reversed and it was peter strzok's texts calling hillary clinton a criminal and talking about he how she was in the pockets of the russians because of uranium, on and on, very similar messages about a different person, democrats would be saying there was real bias at the fbi and that's why for example james comey put out that letter in october and that's what caused hillary clinton the election -- cost hillary clinton the election. >> anybody who doesn't believe
10:12 am
that the comey letter had an effect on the election was not paying attention to the 2016 election. having said that, mr. strzok did say some things about bernie sanders that weren't complimentary, some things about hillary clinton that weren't complimentary. it doesn't get the attention. we have to exercise democracy, think about the challenge that lies ahead and know that we should not try to turn every situation into a political game of got you. leland: that would be refreshing as it is rare in washington, d.c. you know that better than anybody. good to see you, congressman, as always and enjoy michigan's sunset while you're out there for us. >> thank you, will do. leland: and a zingerman's deli sandwich. >> absolutely. elizabeth: now for insight on how president trump is a approaching his meeting with vladimir putin. former reagan campaign director,
10:13 am
ed rollins is here. i want to get your response, congressman kildee mentioned that he's not calling for the meeting to be called off. he said he wanted the president to put the bill of indictment in front of vladimir putin and use it to his advantage to say, listen, this needs to stop. is he going to be doing that? will we be seeing that tough stance from him? >> i would certainly think so. and i have to say, i'm probably going to do the congressman no good. i thought everything he said today was pretty smart and pretty objective. i saw a sign earlier by the golf course in which someone put a sign up saying donald trump is not nice. i promise you, putin is not nice either. and this is going to be a test of wills. this is going to be two men, both tough men who have a lot to do with peace in the world sitting across from each other and getting to know each other. i think it's a very positive. they're going to measure each other. they're going to be on the stage for a long period of time, putin
10:14 am
and definitely donald trump could be for another six or seven years. the end game here is just let you know that we know what you were doing and we don't want you to ever do it again and if you do, we're going to hold you accountable. i think that's the language of the meeting. elizabeth: you talked about the protester holding a sign that president trump isn't nice. can the president really avoid chris civil right now -- criticism right now? regardless of how the meeting goes. we'll hear it play out from members of the media and members of the media in russia are obviously quite different but we'll be able to see the different story lines. how is it going to be received? how is the meeting going to be received, the aftermath? >> the truth of the matter is, the white house will try to tell their side of the story. the media will tell their side of the story. i've served in a couple white houses. the end of the game here is you do what you think is best for the country. this president has an agenda.
10:15 am
his agenda is important for this country. a lot of the progress he made on the economic front will be basically continue to have good relationships abroad. but i think the key thing i go back to is these are the two most powerful men in the world in the sense of controlling the largest militaries and they have to get to know each other and they have to respect each other and certainly it's a very, very critical meeting for them. it's not like you sign a piece of paper and walk out. it's a test of what kind of guy is putin, what kind of guy is trump from putin's perspective. elizabeth: yes, large military but economically it's safe to say that russia doesn't come close to that of the united states. and the president has said he's a competitor, not an adversary. he said people support that comment. he said people who are critical of that comment. where do you fall? >> i think the one thing we can never forget, clearly russia is not in the economic game we are. they still are a military power,
10:16 am
the most significant military power next to us in the world today. and we have to make sure he stays in his box, make sure he controls the nuclear and make surees not exporting the terrorism and response to terrorism he's done in the past. i think those are the kind of things that will cloud this meeting. the president needs to say what you tried to do in our elections is unacceptable. i'm a different president than obama. if i find one single iota of this, you're going to pay a heavy consequence. elizabeth: my last question, we had recent polling that was published last night. this particular meeting getting less support among democrats than that when the president met with the hermit kingdom. i'm curious why he's not getting support for this and do you think he should be? >> i think he will get -- polls are a measurement of the exact moment. there was a big hype with the north korean because we had never done that, no president in the history of this country had
10:17 am
ever met with a korean leader, north korean leader. so it was a lot of hype and a lot of hope. there's been several meetings in the past with presidents and the leaders of the soviet union. this is the big test for these two men. elizabeth: ed rollins, thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure, thank you. elizabeth: i think a lot of people are very curious, not as much hype but for members of the media we're prep at this hyped up. >> -- pretty hyped up. >> should be. it's a big story. elizabeth: thank you. appreciate it. leland: the air war over southern israel continues as ah ha mass rocket hits a synagogue. more on that as it comes in. plus, flooding in the grand canyon sends vacationers running, we'll tell you how they all got out. live from moscow with how the russians are responding to the new indictments and how president putin is getting ready for monday's meeting in helsinki. he's thinking about a lot of things right there. hon.

10:22 am
the back and forth continued today. local reports of some of the rockets making it through the iron dome, exploding in residential areas including one near a synagogue. elizabeth: russia's foreign ministry is denouncing the latest indictment of 12 military intelligence agents accused of hacking into democratic accounts in the 2016 election. the ministry says, quote, obviously the purpose of this is to spoil the atmosphere before monday's summit between vladimir putin and president trump in finland. with more reaction, let's go to amy kellogg who is live in russia. amy. >> reporter: hi, liz. i'm right on red square. as you may be able to see, nothing is spoiling the atmosphere here for russians on this saturday night, just one day ahead of the world cup finals. there really has been a carnival atmosphere across this country,
10:23 am
sort of suspended reality for the last month or so. but in fact, of course the indictments yesterday stirred a lot of concern in the government and among analysts who say that it was really just meant to spoil the atmosphere ahead of the summit by those, it was attempt by those who want to block any chance of normalization of relations between the u.s. and russia. analysts here are saying people who follow this closely are saying that the indictments were released at the last minute to really apply maximum pressure to president trump to be tough on president vladimir putin. now, the indictments yesterday were very different from those that were unveiled in february. those individuals really had debateable links to president putin but the list yesterday is allegedly of members of what was formerly called the gru, the main intelligence directory of
10:24 am
the russian armed forces. >> if the information is correct, if it is proven, it's the first time we see that the state employees, state officials are involved in such kind of activities. >> reporter: that analyst said that the military intelligence directory is an opaque organization, multilayer, he described it as a black box, in other words. not everyone, including president putin, know or directs what these people do but he said that putin certainly would know what they were doing in matters of national security and defense and that of course would include any sort of attacking or campaign to affect the u.s. elections. now, as americans, liz, are increasingly convinced that russians are meddling in our internal affairs, polls shows that russians believe that americans are constantly trying
10:25 am
to interfere in their own affairs. in terms of this upcoming summit, of course set on a backdrop of negative -- negativity about bilateral relations, there is some hope here that things will down the road, after this meeting, get better. but the important thing is, people say, that whatever message is sent from helsinki will have to please each side's constituents. >> trump has to show he's not the russian man, putin has to show he is the man. >> reporter: now, you know, liz, it's going to be difficult for president putin who has built a lot of his popularity on kind ofvillofvillifying the west ands some of the problems russians deal with has to do with bad american policies. if he comes back and says the
10:26 am
united states and president trump are great friends, he'll have to add additional spin to that. people here are interested to know what is going to happen on monday in helsinki. elizabeth: it's all about branding. thank you, so much, amy. appreciate it. leland: still ahead, president trump visits the united kingdom, making waves. how the president's take on brexit is resonating with people there as protesters greeted him. and tense moments during the testimony of fbi agent peter strzok. we'll hear from one of the republican law mak lawmakers whd him in that hearing.

10:31 am
you're the head guy. now we have accumulation of biased information that indicates some kind of mental state of bias and at the other end of this we found out that you're the head guy on this. that's what the inspector general said under oath, in testimony, not too many weeks ago. >> sir, mr. chairman, if i may respond. >> there's no question before you. >> i want to correct inaccurate things you said. >> i didn't say anything inaccurate. >> you did. >> the witness needs to be able to answer the question. >> you're out of order. >> the witness needs to be able to answer the question. >> mr. chairman, when a as -- asbursions are cast -- >> everyone will suspend. elizabeth: that wasn't the only exchange. this was followed by a closed door testimony from former fbi lawyer, lisa page on friday.
10:32 am
joining me now the lawmaker you just saw in that clip with peter strzok, arizona congressman andy biggs. thank you for joining us. looking back, would you have had it any differently than thursday? the way you handled yourself and what happened in that hearing. >> well, i think my question is no, i don't think i would change my line of questioning and i think what i would have done differently is at the start of the day i would have set the parameters a little tighter. because mr. strzok was not choosing to answer questions. he wanted to be able to control the whole hearing which ultimately in many respects we let him do that. that's a problem for me. but i was trying to lay out and he knows this that the inspector general gave us the act of indirect impact on the part of strzok and i was also trying to get at the middle state and i think we did that. that's why he was so agitated. elizabeth: well, that being said, agitated is one way to put it. he also was very prepared, at
10:33 am
times he seemed undeterred and steadfast, almost as if he was sort of mentally trained for what went down. the fact of the matter was is that he probably was, he had plenty of time to prepare, he knew what was going to happen. do you think he came out feeling like he had a win? i mean or did anybody win? >> well, liz, i agree with you. he was very well prepared. i also think that he knows what -- he's in control in some respects. you've got the fbi kind of saying he's not going to answer those questions. his attorney says he's not going to answer those questions. we're not holding him in contempt. he cannot withhold answers to those questions. that's one aspect. the other part of your question is we did get some information that i'm not sure that we had before, everything from a confirmation that bruce orr is the guy that provided the fusion gps dossier to the fbi, right along to the questions where i was asking him where he had no -- when i was asking direct
10:34 am
questions, he could not respond to those questions other than to admit that accumulation of bias was reflected in his text messages and his actions. elizabeth: at one point, you had said in the past that his actions portray a fatal flaw. obviously he didn't think so. i'm curious as to define fatal flaw, within the agency or with him as just an agent? >> when i made that statement i was talking about him as an agent, as a person. because he's blinded to the -- here's a guy with literally hundreds, maybe thousands of text messages showing bias and he's saying i don't have any bayas at all. to me, that is a fatal flaw, a personal flaw. but i think there's also some systemic problems with the fbi as well in that they let this guy have control over basically two investigations and an integral part in the third, all very serious investigations where he was controlling the flow of information right up to the people who were ultimately making decisions. that's flawed. elizabeth: is that what you want people to get out of this
10:35 am
is where exactly he was in the fbi, his role? because some people look at this and say maybe they're not familiar, maybe they don't follow the news and they're looking at this fbi agent, maybe not familiar with the fact that he's in charge of certain investigations, on why it is so important that these text messages having that people should know about? >> well, i want people to understand that peter strzok controlled the information on the hillary clinton investigation and in so doing we ended up with no criminal charges on something that i think most americans when you look at it, you say yeah, she should have been indicted at least. he's a guy who had tremendous animous toward the investigation and he basically led the investigation, trying to russian collusion to the trump campaign. you can't get fairness there. nobody would say that was fair. these are two of the most historic investigations and this guy's at the center of them both and he had a bias that was
10:36 am
unfair and it impacted those investigations. elizabeth: it also impacted the agency as a whole. i don't have much time. i think there's so many wonderful people within the fbi and that's really the sad part in all this. >> oh, yeah. he's brought discredit to the whole group when he shouldn't. there's so many great agents that are out there, absolutely. elizabeth: thanks for joining us on a saturday. we appreciate it, sir. leland: you would not want to be swimming off of a florida beach near jacksonville right now. because that is what is in the water, a pair of shark attacks have the beach closed. those attacks just five minutes apart. officials in vernadina beach say the victims were bitten on the feet and neither injury was life-threatening. these are the first reported shark bites in many years. no less scary, though. elizabeth: very much so. well, heavy rain in one of the most popular tourist spots

elizabeth: hundreds of tourists forced to reschedule their summer vacation, thanks to heavy flooding in the grand canyon. vacationers were evacuated by helicopter on thursday with some hikers abandoning their camping gear as they escaped several feet of rising waters. no serious injuries have been reported but the area will remain closed to visitors for at least a week. leland: coming up on 7:00 p.m. in scotland where the president wrapped up a day of golf and protesters are now leaving the streets where thousands chanted
10:42 am
trump's a chump. here to provide a little more insight, james carafano. nice to see you. you read some of the news reports, you would believe that the special relationship is over. overblown? >> what the special relationship is this bond between these two countries that is a security, economic, political relationship which is really unprecedented anywhere in the world. in the 1950s eisenhower threw the british under the bus in the susuez canal crisis, we were stl allies. leland: hundreds of thousands protested against the iraq war. >> we've had way -- not just britain but with europe in general we've had greater stressors in the transatlantic relationship. it's never been a problem.
10:43 am
talk about over-the-top histrionics, that's got to get some kind of award. leland: perhaps pulitzer prize for headline writing, here's some of the headlines from the papers over there. the sun, trump praises may but doesn't backtrack. from the daily mirror, how dare you, you insult our country, embarrass our queen, undermine our special relationship, humiliate and smugly pose in winston chir churchill's armcha. you didn't have a u.s. president saying i like one prime minister but this other guy who is your challenger would do pretty well too. >> this is the trump phenomenon is mirror imaged around the world. in america we have a hate/love relationship with trump and the rest of the world echos that. we see it in britain. we see it in europe. for the people yelling and screaming and making headlines, the british tabloids are famous
10:44 am
for spanning the political spectrum. a lot of people are saying this man is saying exact had what i'm saying. you have to get to the core of what happened here and actually something really important did happen here. which is the president reaffirmed that the united states is leaning way forward and that we want to do a bilateral trade deal with britain. as a matter of fact, there's a group of conservative british americans that have put together a draft trade deal. it has buy part taken support in the -- bipartisan support in the congress. if there's not a hard brexit, we can't do a deal. leland: the brits are making a decision between a hard and soft brexit. the person who is watching all of this very carefully is vladimir putin from his chair wherever he is right now, getting ready tore the meeting in -- for the meeting in helsinki. is it incumbent on the president to be as tough on president
10:45 am
putin as he has been on theresa may, angela merkel and nato. >> the president values the interaction with these leaders. he's learns a lot from that. if he comes out and says nice things, it doesn't mean he's your friend. if he says mean things it doesn't mean he's your enemy. he's learning how to deal with this person. leland: trump supporters explain his statements and behavior with the explanation you used. do the rest of the world's leaders understand that? does putin understand the dynamic you just said? >> i think generally the answer is yes. i think even the critics really understand that. they just choose to ignore it. and just replay the trump they want in their head. leland: we will see which trump we get on monday in helsinki. appreciate the insight as always. good to see you. elizabeth: still ahead, more fallout from president trump's latest rounds of tariffs, which industries are feeling the squeeze, we'll tell you.

elizabeth: president trump's increased tariffs and mounting trade war threats with di chinas already affecting american industry.
10:50 am
joining us now is georgetown professor mark bush. you talked a lot about this. i'm curious, when we look at some of the folks who are getting impacted, is this the new normal? >> it's not the new normal but it's definitely a short run blip that is of great concern for a lot of americans, both as consumers and as producers and things can get worse. this is not an all-out unrestrained trade war. there are constraints on both sides. we're going to have to hope that minds prevail such that we get a negotiated solution. elizabeth: the usa today had a piece and i can put a full screen up so our viewers can see, they listed 15 counties in the us, a lot of them were predominantly areas that voted for donald trump and they're the ones getting hit the hardest, upwards of 1,000, if not more jobs getting impacted in just one of these counties alone. i'm curious when you say it's not the new normal, there are still lives getting impacted and
10:51 am
they're probably worried right now their summer will be different than they planned. >> this won't be an easy summer. the chinese are going to target our politically vulnerable sectors that may mobilize and ask trump to stop on the 301 tariffs in particular. but we also have other things happening in congress right now to potentially roll back some of the authority that president trump has on the tariff and we also have china pursuing legal action at the world trade oranization which could also put a time line on this one. elizabeth: europe is doing the same thing, correct? >> that's right, europe on the 232 tariffs and they're being joined now by a whole bunch of countries including turkey, norway and switzerland. elizabeth: so that's what i -- when you say it's not a trade war now, when -- if it does become one, when will we know? does a that include maybe regulatory punishment that we see. >> i'm concerned about the possibility that china does up
10:52 am
this one shortly and use regulatory measures. they've been hinting at that. there's concern that this could go from bad to much worse. when i say it's not an all-out trade war i take that notion to mean something about the 1930s where all sides were unrestrained. we have real rule of law. we have a real sense for the steps that must be taken. and for that matter, the trump administration has filed against china at the world trade oranization. the steps are predictable. the short run pain is real. no one's saying that especially in u.s. agriculture anyone's going to have a pleasant summer. but it's not the new normal. elizabeth: is it necessary and i think that you -- you have pod casts online. people should check them out, by the way. he see his end game and you see what he wants. >> president trump wants a negotiating edge. we would like to have a better sense of his trade policy for what content he wants in u.s. trade deals, what content he wants in what he's trying to get
10:53 am
out of a lot of countries with which we have arrangements in trade. and so his comment that he wants a u.s., u.k. free trade deal, i like to call that tea tip for two, because it's a mini version of the transatlantic trade investment partnership. that is the right step and moreover, much like president obama, there's a lot of low hanging fruit that president trump could pick. u.s., u.k. free trade deal would be a good start. the longer these trade wars continue, the less goodwill we'll have on the part of the european allies to negotiate deals that look like that. elizabeth: is this how you do go about negotiating on the global scale, on a global scale, especially because right now the u.s. economy has an advantage, it's stronger and you could argue that china needs us more than we need china. >> we need a lot of countries to do a lot of good things in the coming years. we have a lot of populism around
10:54 am
the world. economic openness is not in vogue. this is a problem for everyone. the reality ills we need to negotiate and it would be useful if president trump would tell the chinese and the europeans what he's looking for in terms of the content of a deal, not just trying to get a negotiating upper hand on many of our allies, we should be looking for a multi-lateral effort right now, not trying to distinguish ourselves by offending all of our allies. elizabeth: what the headline at the end of the summer? what does it look like? >> we need to recalibrate. when we go into the midterm elections it's hard to recalibrate. but the markers have to be put down for getting some good things done after the midterm elections and my hope is that grown-ups in both parties step up -- elizabeth: grown-ups? >> you never know, right? elizabeth: mark, thank you so much for joining us. appreciate. we'll see what the headlines look like. leland. leland: big game coming up
