11:02 pm
washington. president trump gearing up for high-stakes trip for a high intensity summit with nato a face-to-face meeting with vladimir putin. but first, he'll announces supreme court picked, a move that can reshape the high court for decades to come. kevin is live at the white house with the latest. >>reporter: white house sources insist this will not be a nomination by committee or congressional lawmaker input, this will form the president and the president alone. that hasn't stopped competing voices on both sides of the political spectrum from trying to influence his choice. judges are thought to be conservative but there's increasing pressure to pick someone that will draw the eye or of republican senators. - - [indiscernible].
11:03 pm
selecting a judge with a fairly limited paper trail, just to avoid a fight in the senate is risky. such was the case with david souter. former justice who despite being nominated by a conservative president, proved to be anything but. >> in choosing justice kennedy's replacement, my biggest responsibility is to select a justice who will faithfully interpret the constitution as written. >>reporter: monday spending selection precedes a summit and bilateral meetings with theresa may and vladimir putin. the latter of which can prove pivotal in shaping president trump's vision of russian and u.s. european relations. this as the president's top diplomat mike pompeo sailed into decidedly choppy waters in his bid to get young yang to get rid of its nuclear ambitions. with them describing the same at talks as regrettable and - -
11:04 pm
like. >> we had good faith. productive conversations which will continue in the days and weeks ahead. in the meantime, sanctions remain in place. >>reporter: meanwhile, the president top diplomat, mike pompeo not only sailed into choppy waters, he is away as they are new developments on this conversation between the president and bob mueller. have you heard about this? the special counsel getting new condition by 40 juliana who told the new york times he would have to see how the basis of that sitdown would go so that the trump team can assess the mother teams objectivity. very interesting indeed. >> reporting from the white house, we appreciate it. joining me from brussels, the u.s. ambassador to nato, kay bailey hutchinson. listen to what president trump said about nato on thursday. >> i'm going to tell nato, you've got to start paying your bills. united states is not going to take care - - we are the schmaltz paying for the whole thing. >> the "washington post"
11:05 pm
reported, trump for his part tells european leaders how much he dislikes the eu and how it is worse than china. ambassador hutchinson, what do you make of those comments and is it possible for the president to convey a sense of cooperation because there has been significant progress that nato has made. >> nato really is making progress and they are doing it really at president trump's insistence. i think it's very clear and he's been very direct about the europeans needing to do more for their own security. dana, i've worked for probably three presidents. all of whom have said the same thing. now i think for the first time, we are really seeing the europeans actually start going in the right direction. every ally is increasing
11:06 pm
defense spending. we've had the largest increase in defense spending since the cold war. and in the year -and-a-half president trump has been in office, it has doubled since 2014. i think he is making an impact i think the europeans, including chancellor merkel said recently, we are going to do more. we need to do more. it's the right thing to do. and she is encouraging her parliament to increase the defense budget. so we will be more fit for purpose in nato for the fights we want to deter. >> do you anticipate there might be additional conversations within the nato meeting about the tensions regarding trade and tariffs? >> one thing i will say is that
11:07 pm
in all of the disagreements we have seen at the g7 and with allies with whom we are now having trade talks and negotiations and tariffs. that has not come up in the nato context. our diplomats are professional. they are staying on our nato issues where we are 100 percent allied. >> you said recently that nato's main concern is russian. that the u.s. has beefed up its troop strength in nato countries. the president reportedly have said crimea should go to the russians and most people there speak russian. does that concern allies like the baltic states and is that the position of the united states that our allies have reason to be concerned about threats from russia? >> i think definitely we are hardening our defenses as a
11:08 pm
deterrence against the invasion of any outside influence. most certainly russia which had much-maligned influence that's been an attempt to destabilize our alliance and our allies. it's also counterterrorism. we have a major effort and it was president trump's request that we prioritize it more in the counterterrorism area which we are doing. and i think it's very important that we support the ukraine and the illegal invasion of crimea and also, tension area in eastern ukraine. ukraine is trying very hard a strong and sovereign nation and nato is committed to helping them do that with the reforms they are seeking. i do think we are allied in that and i know that all of us
11:09 pm
in the united states too, want to assure we have the mutual defense against any kind of maligned influence that russian might attempt and most certainly the export of terrorism from afghanistan and other countries that is in our interest to do. >> let me ask about another nato ally and that is turkey. tomorrow, president - - will be sworn in. he will continue his 15 year rule. he now has expanded powers because of the election. the russian prime minister will attend the inauguration. our u.s. ambassador post to turkey is still there. do you have any concern that russia is trying to flip turkey? >> oh yes. i do think russia is trying to flip turkey. they're trying to flip many of our allies. they want to destabilize the
11:10 pm
strongest defense alliance in the history of the world and that is nato. every effort we can make that strengthens our alliance as well as the partners we have is very helpful, very productive and very necessary. turkey is one of our alliance most strong members. they are a framework nation helping us in afghanistan. they've been an ally for a long time. we will continue to work with them. we know that russia is trying to move in but they are strong and they are a nato strong member. >> i know turkey is trying to explore the idea of purchasing and as 400 system, and antiaircraft system that russia builds in the united states is
11:11 pm
opposed to that. do you think president trump will address this at the meeting this week? >> dana, president trump has addressed it with president - - we have addressed it at every level. we are very much against that because it will affect the interoperability of our nato forces in turkey. we can't have a russian built defense system with f 35 going into turkey. so were working with turkey in every way not to put this russian system in the middle of their country when they are such a strong ally of nato as well as the united states. >> the me ask you about germany. he said there's no discussion regarding u.s. troop withdrawal. but i understand the pentagon is undertaking a cost analysis of the 35,000 u.s. troops. how do you describe with the
11:12 pm
nato or to the president, the rationale for keeping u.s. troops in germany? >> the u.s. troops in germany of which they are in the neighborhood of 30,000 are there for many purposes. part of which of course is our ally to germany but also, they are a forward basing presents. they are hospitable focus which helps when we have injured soldiers that need immediate care. they fly to germany. they are basing operation and they will be part of our military operability and nato. of course we want to make sure we are getting help with the cost of troops in germany when it is in our interest to have them. that is a negotiation we always have with countries. but i will say that germany has
11:13 pm
been a very solid partner and having our troops there. it has a long-standing support both for us in germany. >> let me ask you about poland. poland is lobbying for a more permanent presence. is the united states considering that?putting our troops in poland? >> we do have troops in poland. it is a rotating force. part of our enhanced forward presence. we have a great relationship with another great ally of ours in nato, poland. they have offered permanent basing. we look at all offers made like that but no decision is being made right now. looking at it, yes, in fact congress has asked that our defense department look at the cost involved in new basing of
11:14 pm
kind of where it might be. >> ambassador hutchinson. thank you for joining us. i hope you great meeting this. >> thank you. glad to be with you. glad that you have the sunday show while chris is gone. >> up next, secretary of state mike pompeo praises progress on

11:18 pm
u.s. of making gangster like demands and the most recent round of toxins the summit between president trump and kim jong-un. secretary of state) just wrapped up meetings maintained his visit produced results but said sanctions would remain for now. pointing me from clemson, south senator lindsey graham just back from a trip. if we can start with north korea. there's obvious improvement in relations because you have kim jong-un that used a president trump was at theard- - [indiscernible] >> i see china's hand over
11:19 pm
this. we by $500 billion worth of goods from the chinese. they buy $100 billion from us. they cheat and president trump wants to change the economic relationship with china.if i were president trump, i would not let china to use north korea to back me off of the trade dispute. we've got more bullets than they do when it comes to trade. we can hurt them more than they'll hurt us. all we're looking for is for them to stop cheating when it comes to trade. there's no doubt in my mind it'sthe chinese pulling the north koreans back . you asked mike pompeo did he sleep well. if you know what i knew about what we could do to the leadership of north korea, you wouldn't sleep very well. >>dana: i really enjoyed reading about that exchange women with in general asked mike pompeo twice, surely you couldn't have slept well last night. and he said i slept just fine. meanwhile, president trump will meet one-on-one with vladimir putin in helsinki. rumors report that the kremlin
11:20 pm
is working with the u.s. on a deal the president will accept. saying vladimir putin has agreed in principle to u.s. -israeli plans. - - that's according to two kremlin advisors. would you recommend the president agree to that deal? >> given russia's behavior, absolutely not. russia was supposed to make sure assad had no chemical weapons.the last thing you can depend on is the russians to take care of american-israeli interests. our troops in northeastern syria working with the syrian democratic forces, arabs and kurds have demolished ices and if we stay there. we have 2000 troops. isis won't come back. if we stay in northeastern syria, and ron can't march from tehran to beirut. i don't trust the russians to implement any agreement when it comes to the iranians but there's a way tobreak the - - russia away from iran.
11:21 pm
our presence is an insurance policy against assad taking over syria and ice is coming back in the iranians owning the whole region. >>dana: how do you balance the pressure on russia with the concerns on many other fronts? how would you recommend president trump approach that meeting monday in helsinki. his first one-on-one with vladimir putin? >> when vladimir putin denies he was involved in our election in 2016, rejected the denial. challenge him. don't let him deny the obvious. they're still trying to disrupt the 2018 election cycle. when it comes to syria, we need to be partnering with turkey to maintain a presence in northeastern syria. iran is a weak economy. what we need to do is partner with turkey and russia and break iran away.
11:22 pm
they have a different reason for being in syria the most everybody else. israel cannot tolerate hezbollah and iranian presence in syria. if you leave assad in power, the arabs will never accept them and neither will syrian people. this way to get russia pulled away from iran but we have to have a presence in iraq and syria to be successful. in 2007 he lost 900 soldiers fighting in iraq. the last three and half years we've lost 14. president trump has done a good job of destroying isis and countering is on. our soldiers are insurance policies against iran domination and the rise of isis. if we keep this configuration in place, we've got leverage regarding russia and is on. >>dana: you mentioned turkey. you want a trip where you spoke to president - - he will be inaugurated for i think a fourth time tomorrow. while turkey has been somewhat helpful in syria, are you concerned that turkey is an ally adrift and is there a
11:23 pm
strategy to get them back on track? >> there definitely an ally address but there's a new chapter in turkey's history. - - won big and he will have a long time to serve and we need to come to grips with that. we need to push when it comes to the way they treat the present human rights abuses. they have americans in captivity for no good reason. we need to assure turkey the kurdish forces we've partnered with and syria were not present a threat to turkey. that's a legitimate concern. turkey has no interest in iran dominating damascus. at the end of the day, their economy is better off hooked up with us versus russia and iran. they are a nato ally. i came away from my meeting somewhat encouraged we can start over with president - - in a win-win fashion securing the northeastern part of syria in a fashion acceptable to turkey and they can be a better ally when it comes to pushing against iran and ices.
11:24 pm
>>dana: did you talk to president - - about this idea that wants to buy an antiaircraft system and do you think he wants to go forward with it? and if he does, will the congress vote to put sanctions on turkey since that allowed under the russian sanctions act. >> were not going to sell turkey the f 35, our most advanced fighter and allow them to buy the most advanced soviet antiaircraft system. it will just be a matter of time before the f 400 would be used in a fashion to undermine the f 35. they have to pick. i would like them to buy the patriot missile better. they are a nato partner. they need to release - - was been held in my view, way too long. very much illegally. you've got to remember that president - - was under siege two yearsago. there was an armed coup . i left the meeting thinking we can do business with - - you can have the sf 400.
11:25 pm
there's a win-win situation in northeastern syria. i think turkey understands their future is better with the west economically and i would like to do a free trade agreement one day with turkey when they get thehouse into ord. thatwould neuter russia antiphons influence better than russia and iran's influence. >>dana: i want to bring a pastor - - did you get any indication he will be able to come home soon? >> i bet with him. here's what's interesting, president - - met with - - and myself. the next day he let us go see pastor ponce is doing well physically but has been in jail way too long. he's lived in turkey 24 years. he has nothing to do with the
11:26 pm
coup. he is not a threat to the people of turkey. that's the defining issue between us and turkey. i'm encouraged. i don't think they'd let us go see him if they were not looking for a way to end this. we need to get this issue behind us. i left turkey thinking, after - - election we've got a chance to do business with him better than in the past and i hope he'll take a bit we need turkey and they need us. >>dana: back on domestic policy.the timing of the supreme court nomination seems to not be better for republicans. you're on the judiciary committee. you've been around for supreme court nominations but how different might this would be into you feel confident the republicans will be able to confirm one of president trump's nominees before the midterms? >> i've got two words. i heard supreme court and confidence. republicans are holding for lottery tickets and all of them
11:27 pm
are winners. if you're a conservative republican, the four people named are all winners and every republican should embrace these pics. here's the truth. donald trump, john marshall - - they couldn't get through. maybe a handful of democrats will vote for trump pics because they have to politically. i've never seen it this dysfunctional. there's nobody that president trump could nominate from a conservative vent that will get many democratic votes but this is a nightmare for red state democrats to oppose a highly qualified nominee and all are highly qualified. been on the court. know what they're doing.
11:28 pm
mainstream judges. so red state democrats are going to have a hard decision and i hope every republican will rally behind these pics because they are all outstanding. >>dana: senator lindsey graham. thank you for reading my mind say she couldn't hear me. always good to talk to you. what could a conservative replacement for justice kennedy mean for road the way? ilise hogue, president of naral pro-choice america
11:29 pm
11:30 pm
11:31 pm
>>dana: the president is set to announce his nominee for the supreme court monday at 9:00 p.m. eastern. most of the focus couldhas been the justice can overturn the roe v wade decision. joining us is ilise hogue. take a listen to - -. he put together the supreme court list for president trump but i don't think it's about
11:32 pm
roe v wade. it's about having judges on the court will interpret the constitution the way it's written. >> part of interpreting the constitution is taking into account major precedents and that will happen. >>dana: he says the concern over roe v wade is more a scare tactic than reality but how do you see it? >> we take the president and his word and he's the first major party nominee to put a litmus test on supreme court justices. that was to actually overturn roe v wade. so we believe him. he's got a vice president whose on the - - of history. we think that's the mindset many americans are going into this with because is of such a vocal talking point for him. we also know the backpedaling happening now from people have long been critics of roe v wade is personally because they know what we know is most american
11:33 pm
people, regardless of how they feel personally about abortion, believe that legal access is core to our country. >>dana: i have some poles. public opinion has shifted since 1973. it's been 45 years. 67 percent of americans say they do not want to see roe v wade overturned the other is variations. another poll says 50percent sho saying it should be legal under certain circumstances. with 60 percent thing some restrictions. how do you plan to go forward and is it a situation where you let the states decide if there is this public opinion change? >> i'm from texas so i'm very familiar with what happens when the state decides. similar to other freedoms and protections. without a federal guideline, a firm - - that roe v wade should
11:34 pm
be legal. many states have decided it should be criminalized. it would make the abortion act - - that makes women and doctors criminals. we think the federal protection is necessary and we also know that number of people who say in some circumstances, of course. it's accommodated issue. when you probe that further, we find that people are very uncomfortable sitting in judgment. every individual has a story and most people are compassionate and recognize allowing people to make their own decisions about their families is the compassion and healthy choice. >>dana: that to the supreme court nominations. i take your point that what president trump said in the campaign what he says now is that he's not going to ask people about the abortion issue. >> can you tell me whether roe v wade was decided correctly?
11:35 pm
>> senator, i would tell you that roe v wade decided in 1973, was the president of the united state supreme court collects in your opinion, is it settled law? >> the court's decision and planned parenthood, reaffirmed the court holding bird that is the presidents of the court and settled in terms of the holding of the court. >>dana: those two seem very similar. different from the ideological perspective and it's the if the new nominee answered in that way, would that be satisfactory? >> the cost president trump change the rules by putting a litmus test on, we think we need an affirmative declaration.i think even susan collins said she needs to see a nominee demonstrate their commitment to upholding roe v
11:36 pm
wade and keeping abortion legal. >>dana: event - - said she would never answer that because it's a hypothetical that she wouldn't answer. >> she did answer that. she declared affirmatively that she believed roe v wade would be upheld. she was being into the ginsberg fool which was future cases which had not yet come before the court. we believe that ruth peterginsb said, women should be afforded this right to privacy. and it is absolutely what most americans want to. >>dana: this is an ad you created running in many of the cities all across maine because of pressure you want to put on senator susan collins. what other strategies and tactics will you use and at the end of the day, there will probably be a vote. how do you think it will go? >> we are really trying to
11:37 pm
channel our members and the flood of calls were getting into our office who aren't even our members into the senators either which is basically to take president trump at his word. don't put someone on the court that will overturn roe v wade and criminalize abortion. we think that's a compelling message. do we think susan collins is the only one that needs - -, absolutely not. this is a be careful what you wish for four republicans with spent decades even to campaign against abortion. but reading the same polls, which is most americans support this. >>dana: what about red state senate republicans up for reelection. when you run ads in their states as well? >> i think you will see a lot of constituents talking to their senators over the next couple months and that includes democrats and republicans. we don't see this as a partisan issue.
11:38 pm
we see it as an issue of human rights. when they hear from their constituents and look at the numbers and their state be it on criminalizing abortion or healthcare, which has become very popular. i think the senators will have to really do their job and listen to their constituents. >>dana: or maybe try to pass other laws. if they can't find it in the constitution, they will probably look to congress. thank you for being with us. all eyes will be on the president's announcement tomorrow night at 9:00 p.m. up next, we bring in our sunday group to previe
11:39 pm
11:40 pm
11:41 pm
11:42 pm
>> i spent the last few days interviewing and thinking about supreme court justices. we will give you a great one. we will announce it on monday. >>dana: president trump building suspense for the selection of his second supreme court pick in two years. joining us is brit hume. juan williams, gillian turner and jason chaffetz. pleasure to have you here. i wanted to ask you about senator mitchmcconnell. he's taking a bunch bum rap. if you go all the way back to harry reid going back to the filibuster in 2013. >> it's been hardball politics on supreme court nominations. that is a function of the fact the supreme court has been the source and other courts as well of so many of the victories that the left has claimed on policies for decades.
11:43 pm
the result has been a huge premium on the supreme court nominations. everyone in the political branches has pulled out all the stops to get their nominees confirmed or some blocked. that's where we are and that is what mitch mcconnell has dealt with and what harry reid was trying to do. >>dana: conservatives have been galvanized for a long time. democrats, not so much. look at what brian fallon which is with demand justice said in the "washington post" yesterday. he said if trump succeeds in this fight, progressives will learn the hard way of the importance of courts. it may take that to realize the courts are an institution worth fighting for. is - - about to change that?
11:44 pm
>> i think so. even now, the perception of the court which is largely at stake going from justice kennedy who was a swing vote. especially on social issues. certainly a conservative but when it came to social issues like abortion rights, gay rights, justice kennedy was open to this discussion.i think the public could see he could be persuaded one way or another. the potential is for a very conservative justice to be put in place by president trump that would say to the public, no, the court is a rubberstamp for a conservative social agenda. i think that would be not only harmful but i think it would suggest to your point, liberals or democrats would suddenly realize, they have to get as activated on this issue as conservatives have been in the past. remember, the list president trump is choosing from his a sickly set by the federalist
11:45 pm
society. - - is a key player on this. there is no person on the left. >>dana: as the midterms approach, i wonder what you thought about the energy around this. it could be that democrats turn up at republicans turnouts as well. to the senate house republicans reduce the risk of losing energy in that department? >> i think the enthusiasm gap goes the republicans direction. what president trump did is put on that list before he was elected. that gave a lot of enthusiasm to a very conservative base that knew the court made critical decisions and republicans have made mistakes on this in the past. they put up nominees that didn't turn out to be quite so conservative. even though it's a house seat, it's the same base that gets enthusiastic and shows up even in a midterm election.
11:46 pm
>>dana: we will continue to follow this. advice you would give to the senate democrats running for election? vote early with the present or wait and see if schumer pressures them not to vote? >> i think the key is what the two potential republican no votes do. that would give political cover to democrats who were in tight election riches to possibly do the same. if republicans hold, i think the heat is on those people. >>dana: then you'll see a 54 - - >> i would add the democratic base for the first time being activated on this issue is pretty intense. so you get someone like senator - - of hawaii says she will vote against any trump nominee for any court. >> she can do that because she's from hawaii which is a bright blue state.
11:47 pm
>> even for red state democrats, i think the previous vote on the supreme court from a trump nominee, we understand that the democratic base be on this one, i don't think that holds. >> there's going to be a fight from democrats no matter which of the three or four. >>dana: it will be an interesting summer. i want to turn into north korea. secretary of state mike pompeo gets back and says i slept very well. you see the north koreans coming forward and say it's regrettable. they treated us like youngsters. a bump in the road or a derailment of the process? >> it's interesting you're asking the question because what i was thinking to myself, is this a bump in the road or does this constitute a crisis.
11:48 pm
i don't think anybody knows the answer. i don't think secretary mike pompeo knows the answer yet and not because he's not knowledgeable but because it's going to take another few weeks for that to become apparent. one thing the administration is doing is circling the wagon. everybody from - - to ambassador john bolton. they've got a message and the message is to stay cool. comment collected in the face of this whether it's a bump on the road or a crisis and to emphasize it's a process and the process is ongoing and it's on track. the first thing that secretary of state mike pompeo said once they can say they want to the press but the process is ongoing. we've already got our next meeting set up so it's going
11:49 pm
forward. >> mike pompeo is talking to these north korean leaders and he gets the idea that something is really different this time. you may be right or wrong. so we move forward. we get to this point. north korea comes out with this bluster. mike pompeo seems serene. who do you believe? you believe the north korean spokesman or mike pompeo? in this case, i'm inclined to believe mike pompeo which by no means says this will end well. >>dana: i think they're clear eyed about what they're doing. let me ask you about another meeting this week. president trump will go to a nato meeting and then a one on one with vladimir putin. what do you think the president wants to accomplish? >> with vladimir putin i think syria is the number one issue and how the russians play a role in the middle east. are they in fact linked inevitably with iran.
11:50 pm
you're this clear from senator lindsey graham in your interview. have to be quite clear with president vladimir putin that the united states sees him as an antagonist and someone who's stirring the .and in directly supporting iran's support of terrorist organizations. so this is not in our interest. the question is how do you break that linkage. making it clear to them.the second part is, you've got to be quite direct about interference in our elections. we can't get president trump yet to say directly, hey, stop it. >>dana: what did you make about questions about turkey what the congress might do? >> on the one hand, we delivered i believe 2f 35's, on the way to 100. turkey is now signaling they want to purchasethose as for s.
11:51 pm
it's multidimensional chassis. going back tojuan's point. the president needs to have a good working relationship but people want to see him take a much tougher stance with vladimir putin single cat metal with our elections but can't be doing what you're doing in syria and we will stand our ground. right now, you've seen some president trump acquiescing to vladimir putin and saying you can take time you because they speak russian. that makes no sense to a lot of us. >>dana: presidents: foreign troops. usually it's high-stakes but my theory is always something happens at home that you have to deal with so you're working overtime. how important is this trip four president trump?
11:52 pm
>> all eyes will be on the vladimir putin visit because of the suspicion held to this day that he has a desire to snuggle up and he thinks vladimir putin can be a good ally. i've long felt that fanciful but i think he believes that. and his behavior toward vladimir putin and the body language and all of it will be very interesting to watch. and will he have a smooth and harmonious meeting with allies ahead of that? that's an open question. >>dana: what do you think on that point. i believe it will be smoother than we think. >> the same issues are on the table. the syrian civil war, election interference, cyber warfare and - -
11:53 pm
>>dana: up next, our power player of the week. the rising star in the republican party bringing new ideas and leadership to congress. with my bladder leakag, the products i've tried just didn't fit right. they were very saggy. it's getting in the way of our camping trips. but with new sizes, depend fit-flex is made for me. introducing more sizes for better comfort. new depend fit-flex underwear is guaranteed to be your best fit.
