2:00 pm
stocks. for a third of the dow 30 stocks. down 20% or more. that bear is knocking on your door. if you don't watch us tomorrow at 10:00 a.m., heaven forbid. ♪ >> hello, everyone, i wall juan williams, along with dana perino, greg gutfeld, jesse watters. he's here. 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." a fox news alert. the senate scrambling as the clock ticks to avoid a partial government shutdown at midnight tonight. a live look at the senate floor where republicans are attempting to move forward on a procedural vote. it's unclear where they have the numbers going forward. over at the white house, the president trying to place the potential blame at democrats'
2:01 pm
feet. >> it's really up to the democrats. totally up to the democrats whether or not we have a shutdown. i hope we not, but we are totally prepared for a very long shutdown. this is our only chance that we'll have or have in our opinion because of the world and the way it breaks down. to get great border security. >> senate minority leader chuck schumer saying that trump would be at fault and democrats will not be budging on any extra funding for the border wall. >> president trump? you will not get your wall. abandon your shutdown strategy. you are not getting the wall today. next week. or on january 3rd when democrats take control of the house. >> jesse, everyone is figuring out, what's the end game here? how does the president play out the strategy? what do you think? >> i don't see the end game
2:02 pm
here, juan. if he has a bill that gets to his desk and it doesn't have wall funding, he vetoes it. he signs it and says i tried. if he vetoes it, goes back, everything gets shut down. maybe it's a shutdown for a week at most and the democrats come in and take over and they never send him anything with any wall funding and you are back with square one. i do not see the end game. i think he's trying to signal to the people that he's going to fight, but he has to find creative ways in the budget to build this wall. the wall has to be built. that's his signature promise. he wasted the first time with it. mcconnell didn't deliver the first opportunity. it's a shame. if they get rid of the filibuster, which they want, you could get a wall. the other side with get stuff, this side would get stuff. but the way the system is designed in the senate? 60 votes for these spending bills? you're never going to get what you want. you are going to use their shutdown as leverage time and time again. we have to talk about how boring
2:03 pm
it is. >> dana, let's not talk about how it's boring. it's a hot issue in public opinion. quinnipiac has a poll outcome up if the 4%, no need to a wall 64% avoid a shutdown. 54% say yes to the wall among republicans. >> i would imagine that 60% of democrats say -- >> it's more than that. >> it's the same. it's quite partisan. i thought the language that ted cruz used earlier today was interesting but i think you'll hear more of it coming from republicans that the democrats are extreme and they are partisan, the president is the one who who is middle-of-the-rn this and commonsensical. some of them pointing back to february when the president had the cameras in and that was in the cabinet room and it was the most amazing meeting anybody sees? that deal with the given $25 billion plus the d aca fix. you go back, gosh, maybe that's the deal they should've had back
2:04 pm
then. but the democrats are so dug in saying no that brian schatz, the senate or from hawaii, went bac. he flew back, said no. that's commitment. >> that is my decision! that's the name of my new show on fox nation, things happen. >> it's making a lot of conservative radio, the" ors, rush limbaughs, what are you doing! you can allow the democrats to win. what would you advise president trump to do? >> that's a good question. >> he's watching. >> when i listen to this, i reminded to be very foolish. it reminds me of about the yanni
2:05 pm
or laurel thing. trump has managed to get democrats to agree having a strong board is important. whenever they get in the -- everybody is saying, here goes, okay, and wall. they go, no, not a wall. they actually -- the both sides agree, but the democrats are hung up on language. they are hung up on language. it's the word. it's the word wall. might i quote somebody? >> scott? >> yes, scott adams. why not adjust the language. if it's a wall, fence, who cares? call it a wence. >> president trump wants people to call it steel slats? >> steel slat sounds fantastic to me. that sounds pretty cool. you can move it around. democrats will say that this is the wrong way to cut immigration. most of the illegal immigration is overstayed visas bear that's like saying, i don't like a fort
2:06 pm
because it won't cut my meet you can have a wall, strong border. you can aggress that other stuff. the arguments are either emotional, flawed, pigheaded. everybody wants the same thing, but they won't give in. >> jedediah, if we do have a shutdown at night, they'll see 800,000 federal workers, 47% of that will not come to work. the rest come to work, they won't be paid until the government reopens. >> they don't have the backpay. >> federal contractors out of work too. the state department says they'll keep doing visas, restrooms, some of the federal parks will be closed. what do you think will be the reaction? >> from the right, people got very nervous that he wasn't going to waive his heels. i think he's already done what he needs to do, regardless of how he works out, he's now going to be the guy who was willing to
2:07 pm
go through with the government shutdown to dig his heels ends and say, i'm willing to do the partial government shutdown. also proving that he's taking on language and say, this is a democrat shutdown. he is taking on the language when it comes to what a shutdown actually looks like. it's not there's armageddon that the left paints it to be. so many essential government function still working. i watched chuck schumer and he says, you're not going to get your wall, as if to to the wals for president trump. the wall is for the united states of america. it's for our national security. it's to address the humanitarian crisis at the border. we are talking about resources for border patrol agents. you just had a little girl die crossing in horrific conditions. this idea that he's not giving him the money to spike trump? you're not spiting trump. you're spiting american citizens and spiting all the poor people who are being incentivized to come across this border under these horrific conditions. democrats should take a minute
2:08 pm
to reflect on that and i know it sounds good to oppose the wall, think about what you're actually opposing, which is addressing national security and the humanitarian crisis that's happening at the border. i think he's done all that he's had to do. >> jedediah, you're so lucky because santa delivered for you because you got a democrat at the table. i say, hey, jedediah, i think president trump said mexico will pay for the wall. >> he should've never been on record saying that because it's unlikely to happen. the bottom line is you have people opening go fund me accounts to say, if the government is not going to do it, we should do it. that's not the case for the primary responsibility of the government is to protect its citizens so that includes border security. >> one final question of is for everybody. jesse laid out a potential end game, the way a president can get out of it, i did my best, i've tried with these democrats. i went to the point, i think jedediah picked up on this, we are going to shut down the
2:09 pm
government. rush limbaugh, "the drudge" report, breitbart, you did your best with those doggone democrats. >> he goes out and does as much as he can, you look at mitch mcconnell or look at the house republicans and say, you know what, they didn't deliver with the two here is have majorities, even then you still need 60 votes. you need to nuke it. you need nuke option or nothing. >> when he starts hammering the table -- >> it does with me up, though. watching politicians debate over is like watching me and dana get something from a high shelf. there is no expertise. the mistake at the beginning of this is not introducing expertise in this problem. instead, it started with a price. if you are going to renovate your house, you're not going to say, i'm going to spend this. you figure out what you need to
2:10 pm
renovate. do i need a table here. then you come up with a budget. this is -- i was going to say ass backwards. can i say that? i think what we needed is engineering expertise, some of that says, okay -- maybe you have a wall here, don't have a wall here, you come up with it. you started from the reverse. that might be a compromise. >> how about our public relations expert mrs. perino? >> i do think there is something the president and his administration was able to do. it was actually quite imperativ imperative. secretary of department homeland security kirstjen nielsen announced they have reached this deal with mexico -- basically said that mexico is going to house or hold the asylum-seeker asylum-seekers. if you are a migrant, you come across, you get processed, but then you wait in mexico. that's a really big deal.
2:11 pm
the administration has done lots of different things that are a part of the whole cutlery set. >> yes. >> there is a spoon, knife, for fork. >> that smaller knife. >> there's a lot of things they are doing outside of the wall that can give them cover with their base but to let the american people know, they aren't waiting $5 billion for steel slots for a wall, that's actually impressive. she deserves some credit for that. it got buried because of all the other breaking news. speak of the supreme court had a ruling, jedediah, that said the administration cannot put a cap on the number of people seeking asylum. the chief justice john roberts voted with the liberals against the administration. >> that is true as well. i also say the dollar value, there's been a lot of debate about the $5 billion. he is not just pulling that number out of thin air, he is talking to border control agents, talking to people at the border, they are telling him this is what we need. this is what is sufficient. chuck to
2:12 pm
sumer , chuck schumer doesn't decide what the appropriate amount of money, so it is donald trump your he's working with people on the border. he's trying to process people, get them in buses in these remote areas to other locations, make sure the proper medical supplies are there, contain what's going on. that number -- there's a reason the $5 billion, in terms of a monetary value, even exist. >> greg, does he go to mar-a-lago if the government shuts down? >> well, i'll talk to him later. i'm going to hitch a ride back with him. >> is that right? on his slate? >> i served drinks on the plane ride. >> the president's critics lining up to take shots after -- you've got to stay with us to hear it.

2:16 pm
speak of the resignation of the commands secretary james mattis after the president's decision to withdraw troops from syria causing panic among trump's critics. >> if you are worried tonight, you should be. >> you have america in retreat
2:17 pm
across the globe and the most extraordinary resignation in modern american history. >> i am shaken by the resignation of general mattis. >> this is the first time i've been frightened for the country. frightened, really. in these almost two years. >> it raises the question whether or not the president -- whether the will wheels are on here over the white house. >> president trump pushing back against those saying the troop pullout in syria saying -- not even close, which is true because isis started under president obama. president trump got them in this place. here's the thing, greg, a lot of critics are president trump demanding someone in the administration resigned on principle. he resigned on principle, they are in a panic. >> i'm amazed that michael moore is so distraught that james mattis is leaving. who knew he was such a fan of mad dog?
2:18 pm
they are all in the most boring sequel of "scream." these networks have become 24-hour hysteria channels. the pauses, dramatic pauses. you are so phony when you do that! can it be that mattis fulfilled the job he was supposed to do and now trump wants somebody else to do a different job? if you read the letter, mattis said, we went in there, we did this, we helped bolster the military. these are all the things he was supposed to do. and thou trump, i want somebody else. beside the fact that c and then claims the world has been shaken, but obama went through ? secretary defense secretary's? in less time. i don't remember cnn having a mental meltdown on tv. >> then there was just a transition. >> it was a transition! >> at that time as i mentioned yesterday, president obama's
2:19 pm
national security and that they wrote afterwards that they were against what president obama decided because they advise something differently on the cereal, but they didn't resign. >> i don't think it's so strange to have someone different from you achieving things and achieve stuff together and you start to see things differently. it's hard when you have someone in a position like that when you talk about national security. you can't really work together. it seems really adult what happened. which, they both sat down and said, look, i don't see the future you do. i don't want to proceed that way. >> apparently their meeting was -- this is just the reporting, but for 45 minutes, jesse, that was -- they elise had a discussion. it was not a knockdown drag out. >> i'm just sad we are going to lose such a great nickname. "mad dog" mattis, one of the best that trump are. obama pulled out too soon, created isis. we had to go in.
2:20 pm
trump bombed the hill out of them. we get in, get out, go by. the president deserves to have someone who believes in his philosophy. with that said, i can see both things but listen, you do not want to give a rainy and's and the russians free reign over that area, and you don't want to abandon your allies. on the other hand, do we really need to be there in syria spending more blood and treasure, fighting the kurds with the kurds, what's the point? we can come out come back in for it happens all the time. are we going to be surprised if there is more chaos in the middle east? are we going to have to go back and clean it up? are we going to stay there forever? i think that's what the president is thinking? >> juan? >> what i'm reading is
2:21 pm
conservatives, republicans upset with this. they love mattis. you hear people like mitch mcconnell saying he's greatly distressed. ben sasse, if a senator from nebraska, said this is a sad day for america when you have a real military hero being placed on principle. the principal, i think that's the distant pushing feature but yeah, you have people who live on administrations, but he sent a line that american alliances are important in the world war ii area and continue to be important and we should be battling isis on the ground and attacking us at home. jesse, asking what's the purpos purpose, -- >> you are making the exact argument that republicans made to stay and when wrecked the peace in iraq, but obama pulled out all the troops and let isis take over? speak republicans very hawkish are worried that he's going to
2:22 pm
be retreating. >> i think the criticism comes out of a place of concern and support for the president. not the panic you saw in the montage. >> i think it's an achievement of one priority and now it's moving on to another one that may be we are not sure about. you should have a concern about the resurgence of isis or the emergence of something worse. we should always be thinking about that. i said this yesterday. donald trump's head is always in that space. this is not dumb like a guy who not only wants to kill terrorists but wants to kill their families. i want to sacrifice the safety of the country on a whim. this is not a huge deal. he's performed an amazing job, but trump wants a different guy with a different job. >> the first time i read that letter, i thought it was a respectful tribute.
2:23 pm
mattis laying out his views. people started digging through it, he's biting and digging. i looked at it from that perspective. while back, people are going out of their way to look for something that this is a guy who couldn't stand trump. it may be its two guys who see a different way of moving forward. >> do you know what's interesting here? the russians congratulated -- because that's the other argument. this isn't about the russians. >> what about the kurds who are our allies? >> the next step. >> the american allies in the middle east? >> well, go to the next step. the next step is what about them. if something will happen, we'll be there. >> okay. that's a big "if" ." >> we'll be back. the border battle raging on capitol hill up next. ♪ [upbeat music]

>> this is a fox news alert. negotiations underway on the potential deal to avoid a partial government shutdown. let's go to john roberts with the latest. >> jedediah, good afternoon to you. this is going to be announced on the senate floor by senator mitch mcconnell, what we understand that happened earlier today, this is where the price president, mick mulvaney, jared kushner involved. agreement made between senator mcconnell and senator schumer, senators corker and flake that they would not vote to table the bill, which means they would a vote to allow it to come to the floor. flake said he'd vote against it. that should give them enough votes to get on the bill, as they say in the senate, then once you get on the bill and start debating it, you can begin to offer amendments. here is where the potential deal could come in. as long as the senate starts to
2:29 pm
consider this bill, you can start to change the dollar amount and the allocation of those dollar amounts in the bill. the bill that came out of the house last night was $5.7 billion for border security, including wall construction. if the senate starts to consider it, you can pair that money back to maybe where it was earlier in the week, at $1.6 billion. there was a billion-dollar slush fund and therefore the president to use as he sees fit. that was giving chuck schumer fits. that's when they got rid of that bill and went to the short-term cr that would go february 8th. there's a chance they can reopen that negotiation and consideration, you give the president a smaller dollar figure, get it back to where it was earlier in the week, $1.6 billion, the senate passes that. get it over in the house. the house reconciles and syncs up with the senate bill. get the president a bill that says $1.6 billion, will you sign it? if they can get that done, it'll
2:30 pm
be a feat. nor do about it. here's what you might run into some problems. if you offer the a the president tweeted out a short time ago a picture of a steel slat barrier which looks an awful lot like the palisades in old pioneer forts. you take a look at some pictures online of fort vancouver? it looks exactly the same, the forts were made out of wood. certain back to the future i deal with of this. let's see if we can put this together. they've only got six and a half hours to do it. it'll be a real question. >> we'll keep our eyes on this for sure. appreciate the update. guys, what do you think about this? they are saying $1.6 billion, jesse? that seems something that's kind of low considering what trump is looking for. even if they can't adjust the
2:31 pm
numbers, there's not a lot of time here. >> we are running out of time. what was that? [laughter] was that a development? that was probably the -- what was that? honestly! the only thing that was interesting about that, i like the new wall. if you have these things like that, do you know how much cheaper that is that a $25 billion thing they did with the prototype? the border patrol loves this because you can see through the other side. it doesn't have to be as thick. it doesn't have to go as low on the ground. doesn't have to go at an angle. it's actually a cheaper way to do the wall. if we can do that with 1.6, i think the president signs it and says done. >> you think so? >> juan williams delma, whenever they say mcconnell, schumer, a lot of conservatives don't have a lot of faith in mitch mcconnell. it's true, though! >> if you look at
2:32 pm
president trump's successes, especially on judges. i think this is a way to get back at fighting the establishment because he is not good enough. they were actually able to win back seats. president trump and mcconnell are a very good team. this thing about the money should have been a long time ag ago. they had a $25 billion thing last february and the president decided not to sign it. >> i believe you. >> i feel like mitch mcconnell, he is like the punching bag for everybody. he's actually working his tail off her president trump and giving up a lot of wins. president trump -- look what i was able to do. >> somebody has to be the punching bag. >> juan knows. >> this is rock and sock them robots. you are stalking me. to me, when you think about conservative talk radio which is what made the president switch
2:33 pm
over and he's got to have this president shutdown, i'm not sure they are going to buy make it. i was watching jesse when he was listening to john roberts, is there going to be a wall or is there not going to be a walk like but i don't think there's going to be a wall and it's not going to be the picture, either. this is a save base maneuver by republicans trying to find a way for the president -- >> they'll say wbit more fundinr security and may be there's a way in that funding to find something you can create a barrier, not the prototype, but more a barrier. >> this is weak. >> that looks like the strategy. >> what do you think the republicans have to do, greg, to make the president happy and vice versa? these two rooms of issues see this issue fundamentally differently. is it a dollar value you have to make, isn't it a promise of future reform? what's the sticking point here? >> it's actually about trump, right click

select building a wall takes off a lot of people. pulling out of syria, he bam's bum, which piss pluralists all of these things, they do not fit into an ideological set. they are all over the place. he has a vision that is untethered to ideology. it's not about him. one more point. because juan brings of talk radio. or let's say fox news. donald trump here's something on fox news or something on talk radio and that influences his opinion. you can argue in a way, what he does, i believe this as somebody who sits here and tries to think about the audience, that what he's getting a signal from is what do americans want. and he gets that from talk radio. he gets it from fox news. we represent millions of people

" i don't know if you are good for us are gallant. >> i don't know what you are talking about. i watch "sportscenter." >> there are many, thomas poe comes to mind. >> how about you, juan? >> barack obama. >> do you think he's smarter than you? >> he's way smarter. >> don't sell you smart.
2:50 pm

2:51 pm
had enough politics. go for it. >> it's been clear from the beginning that two things are necessary. support from enough senate democrats to pass the proposal at 60 and a presidential signature. as a result, the senate has voted to proceed to legislation before us in order to preserve maximum flexibility for productive conversation to continue between the white house and our democratic colleagues. i hope senate democrats will work with the white house my honor and agreement that can pas both houses of congress. and receive the president's signature. so, colleagues, when in the agreement is reached, it will receive a vote here on the senate floor. i moved to concur in the house amendment to the senate
2:52 pm
amendment to the house amendment to the senate amendment -- [laughter] to hr 65. >> the motion is pending. mr. president, the democratic leader, as we said to president trump a week ago, his wall does not have 60 votes here in the senate, let alone 50 votes. that much is now clear. democrats have offered three proposals to keep the government open, including a proposal offered by leader mcconnell that passed the senate unanimously only three days ago. we are willing to continue discussions on those proposals with the leader, the president, the speaker of the house, and the leader of the house. all five are necessary to get something done. we yield the floor. >> mr. president . >> the senator from tennessee is
2:53 pm
recognized. >> i want to think that two leaders for what they have done today and what they have done to me even though simple made tuning in may not understand what happened, the understanding that senator flake, senator johnson made is that we are not voting on anything else in this chamber relative to this issue until a global agreement has been reached between the president and these two leaders, and the leader of the house. there won't be test votes. not going to be a tabling vote. and the vice president has been over here with his members negotiating already. what this does, i think, is push this ahead to a negotiation that yields a result and does the best we can to keep from shutting down governments, or if it does shut down, shutting down very briefly. i want to thank the two leaders for agreeing to go forward in
2:54 pm
this manner. it allows us to move forward in a positive way. and yet it keeps negotiations alive. only a bill can pass this chamber that has all of the agreements and i thank them for going forward in this manner. >> the senator from arizona. >> i think that two leaders of this agreement. the senator from tennessee, senator from alabama, senator jones and others, who have worked to ensure that the next vote we have in this chamber will be on an agreement. as senator corker said, not a test about, not a -- what i wanted to do with not proceeding is to demonstrate that not all republicans would be for the house bill either. there is no path forward for the house bill. the only path forward is to a bill that has an agreement between the president, and both
2:55 pm
houses of congress. the next time we vote will be on the agreement, and not another test vote. so with that, i yield back. >> mr. president? >> the senator from tennessee. >> mr. president, the senator from delaware, senator be recognized. >> is there an objection? >> i want to thank senator corker, senator flake, senator mcconnell and schumer for their discussions. the vice president, i thank him for his presence here today. in my own view, govern and shut downs are be a part of budget negotiations anymore than chemical weapons should be a part of warfare. we were elected to make the government run for taxpayers, not to shut it down. my hope is this will put us toward a path for a result and recognize the president's desire for increased border security, which we support. which many democrats support as
2:56 pm
well. >> get out of it. >> that senator allison or lamar of tennessee and they have a deal where they say they are going to only negotiate to a final agreement. not a bunch of back and forth. they just want to make a deal. some progress made, although no certainty that they can avoid and shut down midnight tonight. >> you know what that makes me want to talk about? one more thing. can we do one more thing now? >> it's time for one more thing. jesse? >> i was out at turning point usa's student action conference. they are i there. really just dazzling the crowd. >> [laughs] >> witticism. very break they'll make big crowd, actually. figure than the sum of trump's. afterwards, i met down the do you know what he actually
2:57 pm
said? he pulled me aside and said goodbye you're the best person on fox news. and you are funnier than got felled greg gutfeld. >> he's right and 99.9% of the time. >> with half his brain tied behind his back. >> "watters world." diamond and silk, a witch, it's a classic. >> greg? >> "greg gutfeld show." i've got dana perino! adam answer, cat temp it's time for this. >> i hate these people! >> do you know what i hate about new york? you can't have nice things. you can't have a good umbrella. you put it down and someone steals it. i had the most fantastic umbrella ever called "the weather man." i put it down at a restaurant for five minutes. i come back.
2:58 pm
it's gone. nobody sees the think that you know it? there's a sensor in the umbrell umbrella. i just have to figure out how >> i can't stand the complaining of greg. >> welcome to the club. >> emailed him in the morning. i told him it was storing stolen. takes care of a christmas gift for my wife. you can hook this thing up and nobody can steal it. thanks, rick! my favorite weatherman. >> all right. so i'm going to go. it's the weekend before christmas and all through the house, children. here's an answer back to when my kids were little and they sat with chantelle. that's ray ray and tony. here's their official santa photo and their family christmas card with my grandfather.
2:59 pm
naughty, naughty, naughty. here they are with wooden shoulders, wreaths, , and one me christmas crumb to all you fox fans. here is notorious -- no, we are not going to do that. >> you are going to do something about bret baier. save it. >> jedediah? >> i have a dog that hates the vets. many of you may have one too but i have a video of a dog to get super excited to go to the vet. colorado state university vets, his name is endo and good contrast to my dog who bites the vet. all of 7 pounds -- there she is! the vet holding her mouth so she doesn't get bitten. >> i bet and dell has brother named inny
3:00 pm
>> that's it for us. we are going to see you back here on monday for our christmas eve special. you do not want to miss that one. now "special report" with bret baier is up next. stay with fox news channel. >> bret: this is a fox news alert. i'm bret baier in washington. we just had a major development. at least incremental progress towards avoiding a partial government shutdown. just six hours away, if no budget agreement is reached before midnight. just moments ago, the senate overcame a major procedural hurdle and voted to take up a spending bill. it does include some money for the border wall, not everything the white house wants. the key part in crossing the first hurdle was in agreement to keep talking and negotiating over specifics between democrats and the white house. we have fox team coverage.
