12:00 pm
have created space for isis to expand and grow like nobody has ever seen before. these actions, along with our disastrous iran deal, have also reduced or able to work in partnership with our muslim allies in the region. that is why our new goal must be to defeat islamic terrorism, not nation-building. no more nation-building. it's never going to work. and by the way, we have spent almost $5 trillion over the years on trying to nation-build in the middle east. and it has been a complete and total disaster. we're further away now than we were 15 years ago. for instance, the last major nato mission was hillary clinton's war in libya. that mission helped unleash isis on a new continent. i've said nato needs to change
12:01 pm
its focus and stop terrorism. we have to focus on terrorism and have to stop terrorism. since i've raised that criticism -- and it's okay, got noncredit for it but these are minor details -- nato since announced a new initiative -- front page of "the wall street journal" four days ago -- focused on just that. america must unite the whole civilized world in the fight against islamic terrorism. [applause] pretty much like we did with communism during the cold war. we've tried it. president obama's way. doesn't work. he gave the world his apology tour. we got isis. and many other problems in return. that's what we got. remember the famous apology to -- we're sorry for everything. i'd like to conclude my remarks
12:02 pm
today by again expressing our solidarity with the people of orlando, who have come under this horrific attack. when i'm president, i pledge to protect and defend all americans who live inside our borders. wherever they come from, wherever they were born, i don't care, all americans, living here, and following our laws, not other laws, will be protected. [applause] >> thank you. thank you. we're going to be tough and we're going to be smart and we're going to do it right. america will be a tolerant and open society. america will also be a safe society. we will protect our borders at home. we will defeat isis overseas. we have no choice.
12:03 pm
we will ensure every parent can raise their children in peace and safety. we will make america rich again. we will make america safe again. we will make america great again. thank you. thank you very much. [applause] >> thank you very much. thank you. >> donald trump live, in manchester, new hampshire, with a strong message about the new events of the past 36 hours, saying a politically correct response will destroy the united states, saying with we don't get tough and smart, it's on us, and reiterated his call for what he considers a pause, a temporary pause, in the admission of refugees from the war-torn country of syria, and suggesting he would expand that beyond to other countries that have direct links to terrorism. i'm bill hemmer, tick past 3:00,
12:04 pm
working today for shepard smith here on site. carl cameron is with donald trump. want to check in on the message and the speech and more from the trump team. carl, good afternoon. >> hi, bill. well, obviously this was a so manier and sometimes very angry speech. donald trump had plans to deliver a speech castigating hillary clinton and saying she was unfit for service, and going after a bill of particulars if he thinks that are the offenses shoot dissquall her from the presidency and this was supposed to be a peach some n which he would outline how he would defeat isis. what mr. trump said was that the intelligence services are being hall strug by president obama and president obama is in part by association to blame for all of these things for not having done enough to stop isis already. he also criticized hillary clinton time and time again, saying she was weak, out of step, dunce understand the problem because she has refused for years to say, radical islamic terrorism. today actually, when asked about
12:05 pm
her unwillingness to say that, she talk about radical jihadoff. but has not used the phrase. radical islamic terrorism and trump. became quite critical of hillary clinton and the president, and for donald trump who more than a year ago said he had, a quote, beautiful plan to fight isis but didn't want to talk about, lest everybody stall the idea in the presidential race or prepare for is, as the terrorists defending themselves front an onslaught of americans trying to stop it. he renewed his call for a temporary ban, saying it two be temporary. it would take a while to figure out which countries he -- he was rather specific about this, saying there would be countries from which radical terrorism has been shown to be emmating and coming to the u.s. that would have a temporary ban on immigrants. he made absolutely no compromise in that. he said that is something he thinks absolutely has to happen, and when he is president he'll implement it. bill?
12:06 pm
>> carl, did you hear the comment about he accused the terrorists of being an afghan -- i believe was the word that trump used there -- born to afghan parents. all the information we have today is that he was born in new york. now, have you seen a transcript of the speech? did i hear him say that? or was it different -- >> reporter: he did say that, actually. there is a transcript and we'll check it again, but the words he used, perhaps if he misread it from the transcript but he suggested that the shooter was in fact born in afghanistan and noted the shooter's father at one point was a candidate for president of that country. so perhaps his facts were a little bit wrong or misread from the prompter. something he has not had a lot of practice with. he's been doing it's lot lately but it's mostly been off the cuff. >> thank you, carl. carl cameron live in manchester. so the news is slowly sinking in here in central florida. 49 innocent people dead.

12:09 pm
propaganda, but so far there is no evidence that he had direct ties to islamic state or other terror groups, that according to the fbi. >> no direct evidence he was part of a larger plot, and in that sense it appears to be similar to what we saw in san bernardino but we don't yet know. and this is part of what is going to be important in terms of the investigation. >> fbi director james comey today saying the killer called 9-1-1 three times during the attack. he says twice he called 9-1-1, one time the operator called him back. he says the suspect pledged loyalty to the leader of the islamic state but also mentioned other terrorists, too, including the boston marathon bombers. director comey says the fbi had interviewed mateen three times for having loose ties to a suicide bomber in syria, and for comments he made to a coworker at the security company in 2013. one of those coworkers told "the

12:18 pm
learning about in the fbi's contact in the past with the shooter? >> reporter: the fbi ran a full ten-month investigation of omar mateen beginning in may 2013 after he told co workers he has family ties to al qaeda, was a member of a she you organization and hoped the feds would raid his home and assault his family so he could retaliate and become a marti. the fbi used informants, did surveillance and two in-person enter influenza which he told them he admitted make together claim to flip out his coworkers. during that investigation mateen was added to a watch list and if he had tried to buy a gun the fbi would have been told. three months after that investigation closed, mateen's name came up in a second investigation before a florida man who was the fir american suicide bomber for al qaeda in syria. they went to the same florida mosque. >> in the course of that investigation, one witness told us, when asked, do you know
12:19 pm
anybody else who might be radicalizing, he had once been concern about the killer because the killer mentioned videos. >> mateen was watching the videos of the american cleric, al-awlaki, the first american tacted for death and killed in 2011. reading the sermons or watch his videos are among the most common red flags for radicalization and they were also seen in the san bernardino case as well as fort hood bill. >> there was also several 9-1-1 calls that were made between the terrorist killer and the 9-1-1 operator. what more did we find out about that today, katherine? >> reporter: the fbi director confirmed there were in fact three 9-1-1 calls that began about a half hour into the attack. mateen called and hung up. he then called a second time and spoke briefly. and then the dispatcher made the third call, calling him back. >> during the call, he said he was doing this for the leader of
12:20 pm
isil, who he named, and pledged loyalty to, but he also appeared to claim solidarity with the perpetrators of the boston marathon bombing, and solidarity with a florida man who died as a suicide bomber in syria for al nusra, a group in conflict with the so-called islamic state. >> the fbi director told us at the session that there are strong indications that the attack was inspired by a foreign terrorist group, though he said the calls seem to confuse the issue because mateen pledged allegiance to isis and linked himself to al qaeda. director comey said mateen traveled twice to saudi arabia but found no derogatory information about the trips and he had nothing further to say on the people magazine report that mateen did surveillance of disney world or his contact with other clubs, citing that east orlando post article. >> catherine, he also noticed don't see anything we would do differently.

12:25 pm
got there about 1:30. when i ordered my drink if asked if it was last call. it was. they made me mixed drink. sat at the end of the v.i.p. area, close to the unisex bathroom, and the neck thing you hear is pow, pow, pow, thinking it's part of the music bus it went with it. >> just a little bit -- we have helicopters above so just speak up a little built. did it continue in that rhythmic pattern? >> no. it was continuous. just kept going and going. after a few shots and you hear screaming turned around and kind of looked in the v.i.p. sex -- people were dropping and people were screaming and blood everyone. the personality next to me was shot and went down i didn't know what to think. i dropped immediately. a weapon of this mat destruction was insame. at firth i thought it was
12:26 pm
multiple shooters because to hear that many gunshots at one time, and kept going. >> at that point you're on the ground. did you crawl out? >> when i dropped to the ground, went -- noticed everyone was falling, the liquor glasses were breaking and bullets were straight ahead0. so if you standing and running you were getting shot. so i dropped and crawled out. when i reached the back patio i knew i had reached the outside and that's when i tried to stand up, and zig-zag out. >> how long would you say from the first shot that you recognized as a bullet, from a gun, to the time you got outside? >> probably 45 seconds, a minute. it was -- everything was just so quick. it happened so quick. it was like a herd of elephants. everyone kept going and there was no stopping. when i was on the ground trying to call out i got stepped on a couple times and by the time i got out, i thought i have to get
12:27 pm
out of here. it was either life or death, and there was no way. i was going to -- >> surely dark in there did you see casualties? >> i saw that there were people that may not get out possibly. there were people that were limping. people shot in the hand, arms. they were just running, and when we were trying to make it across the street, noticed some that had already been shot and they had stopped and rested and were believing scout trying to wrap people. put a bandana on a bull resident hold to keep them from bleeding out, and the paramedics took him. and i helped somebody else and we helped carry her. she was shot in the arm. she had heart issues and was trying to pass out. was trying to keep her awake by telling her her marriage what she was there, what brought her to orlando. she just moved here from ohio as
12:28 pm
well. so both of us just moving here -- >> you had a remarkable story, and i have seen you of and on throughout the day out here. a lot of media, a lot of law enforcement. does it help you to talk about it? >> it does, actually, because it makes me not think about what is going on. it also helps to reach out to those that aren't able to have the courage to do this, and it's interesting to say that, as a community, we're being brought together better, and everyone is trying to stay -- i've been watching this thing with bush and with him trying to say it's an isis thing or group of muslims. no. it was a hatred thing. one person. one individual that felt that he didn't like a certain thing and he came in and he wanted to destroy the lgbt but it was the whole community. >> everyone. >> everyone. so when you say a target, you feel it as a target because it is an lgbt club.
12:29 pm
but pulse is where -- a mixed club. three different rooms, these different types of music. it was latin night. >> thank you for sharing your story with it. it's great to see you, moved here from sandusky, ohio. thank you for sharing. >> thank you. alive says his sonother man who was shot twice inside the nightclub. >> he got shod. threw himself on the floor. then he got shot again when the gunman came over and he kind of lifted up his eyes a little and just lay back down. that's when he noticed that the girl he was holding hands with, let his hand go. so he notice shed got shot and didn't make it. >> sorry. >> doctors say 29 people still in the hospital. five in grave condition, and we pray for. the now. emergency workers rushing most of the victims to orlando regional medical center, the only level one trauma center in
12:30 pm
the area, and also happens to be just about half a mile north of the club. a doctor described the scene on facebook: quote chaos was thrown at us fastester than anyone was train to happen. win patient terriblized and three more rolling back. peter doocy has more with the survivors. live outside the hospital in orlando. what are they telling you today? that's the mod like -- mood like there? >> reporter: the mood outside the hospital is obviously -- the air is filled with a lot of grief but people are also very scared that are showing up. not only scared for the loved ones inside, suffering from extreme gunshot wounds. that's the way one of the doctors described them. extreme gunshot wounds, and also fearful whether or not they are going to be safe going to a place like pulse, which was build as the premiere gay nightclub in orlandoful here's what we maune told us a few
12:31 pm
minutes ago. >> i don't feel at all. we went to walmart, don't know what's going to happen. go to the gas station, don't know that's going to happen. we're not safe. we're gay. don't know who is going to kill us. we're not safe at all. >> so people are very upset for a lot of different reasons here at the hospital. that man was ely velasquez, visiting his friend in the hospital who was working as a bar back at pulse, and eli told us that since he was 18, he has been going to places like pulse. he has never been peated down. they've never done any kind of a security check but he thinks that moving forward that would probably be the best way to keep people safe. >> you've think about the changes, too, not just here but other places. the word on the victim's conditions. what have you heard from the hospital? are they going to make it? >> reporter: you mentioned that of the 29 victims still being treated there are five in grave condition, but the hospital is telling us that the prognosis
12:32 pm
they think is good. that they are no longer giving any of the patients large amounts of blood. there were six operations scheduled for today on those victims. they started first thing this morning. we're waiting to hear how the operations went. hospital officials are telling us that the one thing they wish they could have done differently was just had more time. just if they could have gotten some of the victims here a little bit earlier, they may have been able to save more people but that would be hard to do because we are less than a mile away from where you are at pulse. >> thank you, peter. back to you at the hospital. when we get more news. peter doesy. in a moment, more on the investigation, where we stand right now, what we think we should learn soon. we'll peek with a former head of counterterrorism. he says this case is time sensitive and the key element is the possibility that other
