8:00 am
strike the same place twice. it had a home in texas yesterday twice about 120 miles worth of fort worth. more storms are expected in the region today. get away from the trees, get off the course. >> have a great weekend everybody. we'll see you monday. bye-bye. >> jon: we begin with a fox news alert from paris where police are searching the home of a gunman who opened fire last night. killing a police officer and seriously wounding two others. the two investigators now say the 39-year-old french citizen had been detained earlier this year for threatening police and convicted of attempted murder back in 2003. ice is claiming responsibility for the latest terror attack in paris which had tourists running for their lives and ended with police shooting and killing the
8:01 am
gunman. joining us now, former new york homeland security advisor amongst other things. a lot of experience in this particular area. the timing is no coincidence, why is that? >> this is about disruption. the world is watching the selection wondering which way the french are going to go and therefore, it's a great stage to try to put up the message of terror and that's what isis is trying to do with these random attacks. >> jenna: how concerned are you? >> the challenge, of course, is france has a very large population of individuals who have gone overseas and gotten trained or become radicalized. it comes to a community-based enclave. the same thing we saw and brussels and sometimes in britain. you have a breeding ground for recruitment and radicalization. you have a lot of people who have some military training that can come and actually perpetrate these attacks and a very random way. nearly impossible to stop.
8:02 am
by the way, we take for granted the police response. the police officers that put their lives on the line to protect the innocent from slaughter must be recognized. >> jenna: absolutely. it can be stopped, but not undefeatable. >> there are challenges. france has been under a state of emergency for well over a year. the repetitive attack that has happened in their major cities. you had the attacks in paris around the beginning of the year last year. you have these types of constant efforts to try to destabilize through terror the french in particular. it's happening throughout europe and what we have to understand is that isis has a virtual -- because they're losing so much ground in the middle east, their
8:03 am
physical caliphate is devolving. we saw that in the bridge attack in london and they are looking for attacks of opportunity. >> jenna: this guy was known. he was recently known and confronted police just over the last several months. that pattern has continued. why is that? >> there's a couple of different factors. everybody who has been involved in an intelligence operation or security operations understands that there is only so many resources, people you can be following, undercover agents you
8:04 am
can insert. unfortunately for the reasons i just said, the creation of these enclaves, you have so many people who have been traveling back and forth may or may not have the training, but you don't know that there are actually going to take that next step and randomly come and shoot at police. there is no perfect system that's been developed. again, france has been under a state of emergency. >> jenna: right. i want to point out that police did thwart an attack and another french city where they found men with explosives and they were able to arrest those guys before they did anything bad. in america, what is the key to make sure that these random attacks, albeit, they can happen, that they don't cause a great amount of destruction? >> it's really the same formula of trying to take the intelligence that we have from outside the country to see who is communicating inside the
8:05 am
nation, but also, to watch people who have gone and said we believe in this radicalization. to try to permit the law enforcement to have the right resources to continue that community involvement so you can pick up signs if people are moving forward on their plans. again, difficult, as we've seen in the polls nightclub shooting. >> jenna: difficult, but not undefeatable. if we see something, say something. it looks like the beat cops are the ones who are confronting a lot of these terrorists face-to-face. thank you very much, always great to have you. >> jon: president trump expecting confidence about a new plan on capitol hill to repeal and replace obamacare before his 100th day in office set to next week. his optimism largely driven by a deal broken by the conservative freedom caucus in the moderate
8:06 am
tuesday group and giving states more flexibility to pull out of certain provisions of the law. as mr. trump talking about it during a joint news conference yesterday with the italian prime minister. >> we are doing very well on health care, we'll see what happens. this is a great bill, it's a great plan, and this will be great health care. it's evolving. >> jon: glenn hall, u.s. news editor for "the wall street journal" ." we heard the president say it's evolving. evolving in what way? >> that's what we don't really know. there have been a couple of compromises put on the table trying to allow for some waivers for certain states to reduce the amount of requirements on insurance, provided they can show their lowering premiums and so forth, but we don't have a clear line of sight about whether enough votes have been won over versus those that have been lost. >> jon: there don't seem to be a lot of signs from paul ryan and the g.o.p. leadership in the
8:07 am
house that this thing has enough most to ensure passage. >> all they got from paul ryan was some positive comments. nobody has provided clear details about all the trade-offs that are behind that compromise and we don't have a count to see who's on which side of the ledger. >> jon: what's in it for democrats? we've talked about republicans being responsible to try to overhauled health care, what do democrats get out of this proposed bill? >> what we're hearing about this compromise is it's a lot less repeal and a lot more amend and that may upset other people who want to see an outright repeal and replace. i don't know if you're getting far enough, but there is that sort of compromise in place for the possibility of the medicaid expansion being allowed to stand in a few other things that they would want. we don't know yet whether all of that is in there.
8:08 am
>> jon: the white house is saying that it's 50/50, there could be a vote on this by the end of next week. that seems awfully sudden. >> yeah, that's pretty ambitious considering we don't have a bill on the floor yet. also considering that we are facing this pending moment in time where we might have another government shutdown. they have to get an appropriations bill done by the end of next week, i think that's going to consume all their energy. >> jon: also there is a new pullout that says only 36% of the american people that think repealing and replacing obamacare ought to be a high priority right now. given that, why the urgency from the white house to get this done? >> i think there's two things going on there. one of the things is this desire to get it done was a campaign promise of president trump's, something he's been very adamant about wanting to get done and i think he wants to be able to say he got it done, doesn't want to have a defeat, and the other question is he pivoted the tax reform, trying to get that done in the first 100 days is also a huge task.
8:09 am
maybe the calculation was that the best chance to have legislative victory, which has eluded him so far was to get health care done. >> jon: the white house has sort of pooh-poohed this idea that the 100 days is more nothing more than a symbolic milestone. >> i think symbolic or not, the president fails, as you've seen in his tweets, that he's going to be judged. he may be preemptively getting out in front of that, trying to redirect, but i still think there is a sense of judgment and they want to see results. donald trump has been results focused. >> jon: glenn hall, "the wall street journal." thanks very much. have a good weekend. the speech at uc berkeley is reversing its decision to cancel and and coulter's speech. why she isn't having any of it. john kelly and jeff sessions getting a first look at border security. they will join us live from

8:13 am
>> you cannot impose arbitrary and harassing restrictions on the exercise of a constitutional right. i don't happen to be available on may 2nd to pay the hundreds of thousands of dollars in rescheduled, rebuffed, hotel rooms, flights, for me, my security, my guests. none of this has to do with security. >> jenna: that was and coulter last night sounding off after uc berkeley asked her to speak on a different date due to security concerns. jonathan hunt is standing by with the very latest. >> ann coulter is determined to speak and to speak on the date college republicans had invited her, april 27th. she says her schedule is too
8:14 am
busy to agree to uc berkeley's proposed date change and she once again accused university officials of caving to threats of violence by liberals who she says simply wants to silence opposing views. >> this is a form -- it is anarchy when you are only enforcing the law in order to allow liberals to speak, but no, we'll let these people show up with weapons. >> missed coulter was referencing my campus violence that shut down a plan speech by controversial conservative, my, miley annapolis in february. somewhere wearing the semi official uniform of the left movement. police at berkeley says they have intelligence that there are similar threats to the proposed coulter event.
8:15 am
with this a fresh in everyone's minds, they say there is simply trying to balance to soften the competing issues. >> as the home of the free speech movement, we fully support the right and ability of our students to host speakers of their choice. we also have an unwavering commitment to provide the safety and well-being for speakers who come to campus. >> college republicans are now threatening to sue uc berkeley, not the kind of publicity the university wants or needs. on the other hand, it's exactly the kind of publicity that tends to drive book sales. >> jenna: it's quite an education, so there you are. jonathan, thank you. >> jon: isis is of claiming responsibility for the latest terror attack in paris. but please now say about the gunman who was shot and killed by police. and two of president trump's top advisors taken up close look at
8:16 am

8:19 am
>> jon: president trump taking aim at the media this morning tweeting "no matter how much i accomplished during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, and it has been a lot, including supreme court, media will kill." let's ask our media panel. ellen ratner and tammy bruce. his assessment that he has accomplished a lot during these almost 100 days, what do you think? >> he has, looking not just at
8:20 am
the stock market, certainly the mood of the country in general, the opinion of people, but also the bills he has signed, reversing the negative effects of what barack obama did. the supreme court, as he is mentioned, the international scene, not just in dealing with syria, north korea, but better relationships with egypt which allowed our american to be released from egypt. her husband and aid workers who held by them for 3 years. those were extraordinary accomplishments. he moved on obamacare, that was held back by the bureaucracy that he has a change agent. the entity that is stopping things from happening is all the entity that he is trying to change over time. he's navigating these aspects, obviously we've got obamacare and that repeal coming back, and
8:21 am
this is a four and eight year trajectory. the first 100 days, i'll echo up this one second, as i in triden trident. there is a honeymoon and the bear accuracy did not give him. within that mode, he's correct, he's had tremendous success and there will be more to come. >> jon: ellen, the first 100 days, almost there. tremendous success says tammy. >> i'm not sure, first of all, that it's tremendous success. he has done some things, like tammy said, and terms of getting the egyptians out of jail. the wife was an american. i also think -- and has cap some of the union's very happy. on the other hand, i think this first 100 days is contrived by the media and i think we ought not to look at that. we need to look at the long
8:22 am
haul. also what tammy says in terms of the bureaucracy, it's actually individuals in washington might be at the republicans or the democrats, that's what he has not understood when he was running for president is how difficult getting things done in washington can be. >> jon: it's difficult when you are a change agent, if that's in fact with the president is. it's difficult to get good press from most of the media. >> that's part of this point. you already see it. they list the things he's accomplished and then they save that doesn't really matter. there's going to be a point where just the reality of what he's accomplished is going to be undeniable. president reagan went to the same thing. he had a longer honeymoon because of the attempted assassination, but the reality is the judgment of people that's going to matter. with reagan, it was another situation. we can't judge on the usual standard of the bureaucracy of
8:23 am
the swamp, if you will, and that's what the media is missing. the real story here, if you're just going to cover it from separate parts, is how different trumpet is and how this is changing politics in general for the country and changing the bureaucracy already right now. somebody's a smart, we do it all the time here at fox, but other newspapers and magazines are really going to look at the real story and i should real journalists. >> jon: is it possible the president is marketing credit that he should get for some of what he's accomplished? >> i think he is not getting some credit that he should be getting, on the other hand, i think he has underestimated how difficult getting things done in washington is, because again, you're dealing with many personalities. tammy bruce because of the bureaucracy, i call it personalities that are in congress that you have to get through, and the voters are many different personalities. we are a very difficult country
8:24 am
in many respects and i think the press is not covering it in the way that they should be. >> jon: ellen ratner and tammy bruce, thank you both. right now, homeland security secretary john kelly and attorney general jeff sessions, getting an up close look at border security. touring the border in el paso, texas, before heading to san diego today. as a trump administration vows a massive crackdown on illegal immigration. joining us now, secretary kelly and attorney general sessions. secretary kelly, tio first. what has struck you about your time at the border thus far? >> this is my second trip to the border since i've been secretary. first time with the attorney general. the thing that struck me right away as the department of homeland security people who are on the border are motivated to do the job but they were hired to do, that they want to do. very, very positive in the way that they approach their jobs.
8:25 am
what really surprised me as their relationship with their counterparts on the mexican side. very positive. the other thing was the local law enforcement that i meet all the time when i come down to the border here. how positive they are and what we're trying to accomplish on the border, and that is trying to keep out illegal movement of contraband or people. local mayors are just as supportive. and the mayor's case, and the community's case, they don't want any type of impeding of legal movement north and south and of course, we are focused entirely on illegal movement. in fact, if anything, we want to defend the border down here for legal movement and things. >> jon: general sessions, i know you two are very busy there and not keeping up with everything that's being written about this trip, but betsy woodruff is a frequent guest on our program, she writes for the daily beat and she has a piece out today that reads this. the good cop in the bad cop are
8:26 am
heading to the border. sessions, she writes, who is one of the senate's most committed immigration hawks during his time there describes illegal immigration is a threat to national sovereignty that must be blocked at all costs. kelly, frequently express is concerned for migrants well-being. are you two on the same page when it comes to handling our southern border? >> we absolutely are. both of those statements are correct. we do want to treat people who come here illegally fairly and decently, but we do admit 1.1 million each year, the lawful permanent residents, no nation in the world comes close to that. the message people rightly have asked us, we are going to end this lawlessness and create a system we can be proud of. i've got to tell you, i knew a good strong president and a good
8:27 am
strong homeland security secretary, i knew we would make progress, but i didn't know to be as great as it has been. we still have much more to go. we want a permanent solution that's lawful and we can be proud of. we can get there. we need a wall, we need some more agents for our border control. we're going to get that done and will continue to see progress, i truly believe. >> jon: the wall is not even up yet and yet the number of arrests along the border is way down. in january, in the waning days of the obama administration, a little more than 31,500 arrests at the border for attempted illegal crossings. that number dropped to about 19,000 in february and in march, 12,193. the wall is not up. why is this happening?
8:28 am
>> i think it, without doubt, it's the fact that after eight years of essentially a different view of our southwest border security and a different view of our illegal immigration, the new view has obviously caught hold or caught the attention of people to our south, primarily in the central american countries. the people there are awaiting. it's been a great deterrent effect in terms of what we say we are going to do and of course, we already have done a big thing in the last 100 days and that is that we are enforcing a much wider range of immigration laws and we've enforced in the last eight year years. the people are taking a wait and see attitude. we are working with the governments and religious leaders in the local human rights leaders done in central america.
8:29 am
we are sponsoring dhs, sponsoring economic development meeting in miami in june to take away even more reasons why people move from the central america. the vast majority of them are economically confused. >> jon: general sessions, i want to ask you about something else, the notion that your justice department might undertake a criminal prosecution of wikileaks or its founder or maybe both, juliana sanchez, for releasing information regarding cia spy techniques and so forth. what's your position on that? >> the department of justice does not comment on investigations, but i've said it publicly and believe strongly, we fed far too many leaks. we've had some very damaging leaks. it's our responsibility, i have part of the responsibility to try and identify anybody who
8:30 am
violates our laws and you can be sure we'll do that. it's going to be a top priority and will fulfill our responsibility. >> jon: someone suggested wikileaks is just a journalistic outlet. would you go after them? >> i wouldn't comment on that. i have to move forward. and proceed in a way that's lawful and based on the facts that we have. >> jon: we know you two are very busy there at the southern border. a lot more to do today. attorney general jeff sessions, homeland security secretary john kelly. thank you. >> jenna: a lot of important topics there. a terror attack in the heart of paris yet again. what police know about the suspect before he opened fire on a spring night in central paris. the possible impact on the presidential election coming up this sunday. t of beauty and mare claire's most wanted.
8:31 am
eyes show emotion, not your age. olay eyes. ageless.
8:32 am
8:33 am
>> jon: a fox news alert. this is president trump meeting with an edict american aid worker. let's listen in. >> president trump: no, no questions. i think we are in shape. we are very happy to have her back home. it's a great honor to have her in the oval office with her
8:34 am
brother and thank you very much. >> jon: call this one of the early successes. she and her husband were aid workers in egypt. they were arrested on child abuse charges. charges that were thought to be widely suspect. now she is free and she has saw their meeting in the oval office with the president of the united states. >> jenna: a fox news alert as we take you back overseas to our top story. we learn more about the gunman behind last night's terror attack in paris. police say the gunman who killed the police officer and wounded two others was on a terror watch list. isis is claiming responsibility for the latest violence of the french capital just days before
8:35 am
the presidential election. greg palkot is live in paris. >> you see behind me, very much back to normal. last night, it was anything but. exactly where i am standing, a guy got out of a car with an automatic rifle and fired a waypoint play got a police van. he killed one police officer, he seriously injured to others, and he heard a tourist and then he ran. according to eyewitnesses that we've been speaking to, there are rounds and rounds of fire coming from the police. the men was brought down and then he was killed. he is 39 years old, he's a french native, but he had quite a record. he served ten years in jail for a 2001 attempted attack on a policeman. he was just an custody a couple months ago for a threatened attack on a policeman. it was believed that he was on a terror watch list. it is fear that he had been
8:36 am
radicalized according to authorities and in fact, found on his body, a handwritten note praising isis and as we've been reporting, ice is claiming responsibility for the attack. as you've been reporting, all this is happening on the eve of the first round of the french presidential elections here. the attack happened during a televised event last night. one candidate called for a crackdown on this. just a short while ago, we spoke to some people who had a ringside seat for all of this. it was an american couple here in paris with their three children on their 30th anniversary and they were again, right in the middle of it. take a listen to what they said. >> we saw the shooter with the gun. he started shooting in the air.
8:37 am
it was a very terrifying moment. >> reporter: had he shot the policeman already? >> we saw a man go down. >> he did this and know when death's direction. when he did that, i could see very clearly the machine gun. i knew it was an attack. >> amazing stuff. they said when the bullets started to fly, all five of them started running. they went into a storefront and huddled there for about two and a half hours. they said somebody was looking down on them that night, but not so lucky for others. back to you. >> jenna: unbelievable. thank you very much. >> jon: more political crisis unveiling now in venezuela as protesters for the streets. why people are revolting against their socialist government. plus, it's a national treasure that offers a beautiful view of our nation's capital from a very high vantage point and you, the
8:38 am
taxpayer, actually own it. an exclusive tour from the old post office clocktower and washington, d.c., and jenna lee is your tour guide. next let's take a look at some numbers:

i ever spent in my life. life line screening. the power of prevention. call now tow to learn more.
8:41 am
>> jenna: welcome back everybody. washington, d.c., is a city where there are many points of view, but there is one vantage point that belongs to all of us. it's also the highest point in washington, d.c. we all have a very special connection to this building, so it's only fair that we get access. here's the story. ♪ set on pennsylvania avenue is a building that you the taxpayer actually own. wait until you see it, follow m me. we are in the lobby of the international hotel.
8:42 am
this is the building that was once a post office here in washington, d.c. the real national treasure is actually upstairs. ♪ a private entrance reserved for the public is where you start your journey. it was placed here in the year 1899. jane leavy of the historical society of washington, d.c. >> pennsylvania avenue is designed with a specific purpos purpose. it was designed to hold up with the white house. in 1899, the post office was the glue that held the nation together. in that era, before we had electronic communication, before we had transportation, we had the post office. it was the most important government function for pretty much the first 100 years.
8:43 am
>> jenna: the neighborhood where the post office resides has a sketchy past. i didn't realize that there was a neighborhood in washington, d.c., called murder bay. that was the real name of the neighborhood? >> well, i don't know if you saw it on the official map, but yes, murder bay, and fact was right where we are now. >> jenna: why was it called murder bay? >> it was called murder bay because this part of town developed originally as an extension of markets and commercial activity between the capital and the white house and one of those commercial activities was prostitution. prostitution was not outlawed in washington until 1914. >> jenna: that seems recent. >> it is recent. a lot of the brothels were in this neighborhood and when you have brothels, you have drinking and you end up having crime. and sometimes murder. >> jenna: is so the name fits.
8:44 am
>> unfortunately it did. >> jenna: it's also an important place in american history. we have some things here that give us an idea of what life was like then. >> i think one of the most telling photographs is the one here of people who walked away from slavery during the civil war. they found wood and building materials and built themselves saloons right around this area. things were pretty grim right after the civil war down here. the old post office was one of the first projects to bring this area up to a higher level. >> jenna: and more ways than one. some believe that the old post office is actually the site for the very first flag day. >> the flag day idea was an outgrowth of the patriotism i was developing in the beginning of the 20th century. because of this new patriotism,
8:45 am
there's a lot more attention paid to the american flag. that wasn't part of what gave rise to a flag day that we celebrate today on june 14th. >> jenna: one of the things that strikes me most about the old post office is it is a survivor. >> in 1929, the stock market crashed, but it was not prudent to take out a building like that, so they left it. then in the '70s, very recently, this came up again. this building, at that point, was not in good shape and at that point, washingtonians got together and said no, don't tear it down. we need to preserve this building, it's part of our history. >> jenna: i can imagine it. that would have been it. the federal government also known as the american taxpayer,
8:46 am
owns the building and manages the leaves. the national park service provides the guide services to the old post office tower and a ride to the top of the tower leads to a truly unique view. if you have seen in recent years. right now, this is a very unique view for anyone. >> absolutely. >> jenna: you really have a 360 view of all the major sites that you would want to see. >> just coming to town to explore and see what there is, this is a great place to start. >> jenna: can we just check in on the president to make sure anything is going on? >> the columned building uc first is the treasury department. that's just above the treasury department. the white building. the white house. >> jenna: amazing. when you were able to come here for the very first time, what were you most excited about seeing when you came to this
8:47 am
view? >> i've got a long history with the old post office. my first job in 1985 was one of the rangers here in the old post office. coming back after the renovation, i stop by over that time how much of that city has changed. >> jenna: it seems like a very special place to you. >> absolutely. >> jenna: the old post office often described as having a front row seat to history, links are passed with our present and serves as a powerful symbolic reminder to where the true power of american government lies. and the hands of the people. they buried one of the most important parts of it, not only deal on the building is a taxpayer, but you also have free access. you don't have to pay anything to go up to the tower which is nice to know if you are visiting washington, d.c. you don't have to shell out any money to go see it. interestingly enough, there is one part of the post office tower that is not open to the public. they're debating about whether
8:48 am
or not they're going to do it and we got an exclusive sneak peek on that. if you go to or our facebook page, you'll see the exclusive part and you actually get to see the bells that are now inside the tower that weren't originally there, but they were gifted to us and the replicas of the bells inside the westminster abbey and they play periodically in washington, d.c. you'll be able to see that as a fox news viewer and hopefully someday in person as well. >> jon: it's a beautiful building. it's hard to think about the ever thought about tearing it down. >> jenna: it's one of the oldest buildings still standing in washington, d.c. >> jon: cool stuff. good piece, thanks. tens of thousands of demonstrators taking to the streets in venezuela right now. what are the they demanding of their government as a ninth person is shot and killed during these massive protests. a long manhunt finally comes to an end. when there a track down a missing 15-year-old girl and her former teacher.
