president trump talking about the art of deal making in washington. >> in many cases you're forced to make deals that are not the deal you'd make, you'd make a much different kind of a deal. >> reporter: so, what was the give and take to get a deal? the president had to give up, for now at least, border wall funding. that's a win for democrats but the white house is getting some political cover with $1.5 billion pegged for additional border security measures including detention beds and technology. the president also gets about $15 billion in military funding. there's more money for coalminer benefits but planned parenthood funding stays intact and the president had to abandon a host of other cuts that democrats said went too far. >> but he can't just dictate what he wants not talk to us and say you must support it. country doesn't work my way or the highway. >> reporter: so what's next? healthcare. with the president promising another push to repeal and replace obamacare, but also promising to continue a

this morning. >> we have new problems that you need to be aware of. outer loop this is a crash involving a tractor-trailer out by baltimore-washington parkway. the right lane right shoulder is blocked and this is causing a big outer loop delay from the ramp from 95 to the outer loop on through so give yourself some extra time t let's go ahead and switch things over from this big crash scene and delay to a look outside in northeast. you can see things waking up more traffic out there, minnesota avenue remains shut down at burroughs avenue with a downed pole and wires. low hanging wires there. you can detour at hunt place take that over to 44th street but be prepared even though burroughs of a traffic is moving minnesota avenue still blocked right now. let's switch over from our live look to our maps. metro delays. residual delays to largo town center on the blue line. earlier issue at king street. then in addition we have an eastbound seven crash on both shoulders at baron cameron avenue. inbound seven dealing with slowdowns because of that and then another outer loop crash blocking the shoulder at new hampshire avenue. again you can see because of that crash by bw parkway and the crash by new
avenue outer loop delays leading through lanham to bw parkway and then the north and southbound side dealing with heavier traffic. northbound 295 from a late clearing work zone by east capitol street things starting to get back to normal but still dealing with a delay of 12 to 15 minutes. southbound side a bit heavy as well so just be mindful of that of volume. 395 about a 15 minute ride delay from the beltway up. we're dealing with safe track impacting the green and yellow rush plus. allison and steve. >> 7:08. well, up until today, if you could score one of those coveted parking spaces along the national mall at least if you got it it was free. not any longer. >> contractors for the national mall will begin to install parking meters, thousands of once free spots will be gone and it will cost you. our bob barnard is live along the national mall with more on when this goes into that effect and bob i got to be honest i never got one of those no meter spots anyway. >> reporter: that's right, they're hard to find. this all goes
june 12th. they were supposed to today start installing these meters, these multi-space meters not individual meters starting today but with weather and other things, it's been delayed a little bit. but it will still takes effect june 12. a lot of these areas have been three hour parking areas and we're talking parking lots and along like constitution avenue and independence avenue, all along the mall here, so if you're going to visit the monuments, the memorials, the museums and come down here along the tidal basin to visit the cherry blossoms it has been free up until now. the issue is this, though. this is not just going to be an inconvenience for tourists who may not know that there was free parking or still is for another month and a half but think of all the people who work in this area, the federal workers who say they don't want to rely on metro and they come down here and they park in these three-hour spaces all day and rarely get tickets, that -- that free ride is about
>> i've only been parking here for a couple months at this point but i found in parking in this area is really beneficial for me ton my work situation given the distance that i have to commute to my job here. and knowing that parking meters are going to start occurring here, it's a bummer, i understand why, but it's going to make a lot of people who work in this area have to struggle a little bit more trying to find some other way to get in on a reliable basis. >> reporter: and what cindy lee was basically telling us is that, you know, maybe you get two tickets a month that these areas are not really patrolled so you see all these cars here, these are not people just taking a stroll around the tidal basin, these are people who work for the federal government many of them and kind of get away with it, maybe get a couple of tickets a month and it equals out because it's basically free parking and they don't have to rely on metro. the national park service says what they're going to do with these revenues is pay for its
which has about 15 stops around the mall. it's a dollar a ride and that that's what they want people to do is use public transportation, take the circulator and stop the free parking all along the mall here that is really intended for visitors but is used in great part, guys, by the people who work downtown. >> bob, i get that scenario but let me throw a federal wrench into the plan. if that's the case, why do we have to pay for park on saturday and sunday? >> reporte: well, you're right, and this goes -- it's weekends and holidays from 7:00 a.m. -- it's actually, yeah, 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., you know what, they just want everybody to pay for parking, guys, so it's -- it is for tourists late in the day, weekends, holidays but it's going to affect a lot of federal workers during the week. >> oh, boy. all righty, bob, thank you very much. all righty. we will be right back. we have much more coming up after the

now for virginians the white house what you're trying to send but you have to gov to everybody. >> jobs are very important. if you talk to the average virginian they want a job they can support themselves with and their families they want access to affordable and quality health care they want their children to have access to world class education system. those are some of the things we fought for. virginian look -- we're looking at virginia progressive democratic values things like standing up for women's rights to reproductive health care. responsible gun ownership all of these things we've been fighting for. i have been for the last ten years and those things are resonating with virginians. >> let's talk about a couple of things specifically one you mentioned health care. all right doctor. >> yes. >> what's your take on health care right now? >> no virginia family should be, one, medical illness away from financial did he mice. morally people need access to a provider and you know we've worked very hard to expand medicaid in virginia. 400,000
is don't have access to care. that's something we need to move forward with. bring in that money back to virginia. and finally, every day that we don't expand medicaid in virginia, we're not on leaving on the table but giving to other states about $5 million a day. so from a business perspective it makes no sense and if there are no more excuses we need to move forward with that. >> changes could be coming to the american care -- affordable care act between now and if you would win when you would take office. how do you handle that from the medical and governing perspective. >> it's a case there's no more important time than for a doctor such as myself to be at the table to make sure that virginians have access to affordable and quality health care. >> let me ask you about something else this came up recently we've talk so much here in northern virginia problems with gang violence. the immigration has been a huge issue. attorney general jeff sessions came out over the weekend and was talking about changes down the road. but one of the questions still comes up about if
be -- if people are not here legally. >> right. >> would they still feel safe in reporting crimes? >> yes. >> so much effort now is on the victims of crimes. >> right. >> at the hands of illegals. but what about those who would be reporting those crimes? what's your take on that as far as making sure that everything is handled the right way? >> well, you know, steve, first of all, the united states is a country of immigrants, and you know, that means that our doors have to be open. our lights are on. we have to be welcoming to the commonwealth of virginia. so the travel ban has just been an embarrassment i think for this country and it's put people living in fear and so the federal government obviously has their job to do through ice and we have our job to do at the state level, and that's the way we move forward. >> should that be mixed though. should local law enforcement, state law enforcement be involved in that process or would you leave everything to the feds? >> that process is up to the feds. but at the end of the day we need to make sure our immigrants in
feel welcomed they're not living in fear. >> what do you say to somebody who says right now, okay, this is worked show so far at the white house. obviously we talk about virginia big difference between northern virginia voters and southern virginia base which is much more republican. how do you appeal to them at this point to try to reach across that line and say, look, we're all in this together? >> absolutely. well i'm from rural virginia. i grew up i won the eastern shore of virginia. if anybody can speak to rural virginia it's me. as i said earlier, unemployment rate is at three-point 8%. we're very proud of that in virginia. but it's not three-point 8% in rural virginia. so things like access to universal broad band. we've got to work on. the opioid crisis that's going on in virginia right now. that's affecting rural virginia. mental health care, access to mental health care all of these things are important to rural virginia. those things we've been working and i will continue to work on as the next governor. >> because you are lieutenant governor right now it puts in you a
different position than other who's may be running against you right now. one thing sometimes people say to those who are essentially incumbent in richmond, would things change with you as governor since you're already there as lieutenant governor right now. >> obviously, i've been in virginia politics for ten years. things like the smoking ban in restaurants i know how to get things done in richmond. so we're going to continue. we've planted some seeds and very fertile soil those are going to grow to fruition and we'll continue a loft what we've been working on in the commonwealth of virginia. >> lieutenant governor and candidate for governor ralph north ham thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you steve. >> several candidates on already and we're continuing to talk all of the couldn't dates for virginia governor. 7:36. let's neck with tucker and get a check on our forecast. >> steve, got storms in the forecast late this afternoon, early this evening, seven, 8:00 o'clock tonight. we'll put an end to this i want to call it heat wave. 91 saturday. 88 yesterday. let's go to it. show you what's happening. warm start. humid start as well. 73 in washington. most of our area upper 60s and low

$15 billion boost for military spending. nih got $2 billion budget boost. there's also money to fight opioid abuse and continue health care for appalachian coalminers. lawmakers also included funding for summer school pell grants and arrive school vouchers for washington, d.c. students.& $68 million set aside to real em burst cities foreman power expenses to protect trump at his private properties before and aft the inauguration. the white house in this deal making also back offed its talk of taking funding away from sanctuary cities that don't comply with ice deportation orders as we said i think this is more of a live to fight another day deal going on. this is going to fund the government through september and then possibly we have to have another showdown for the following budget that comes for the following year sense house and senate has to vote on this we expect those votes to come this weekend. it hab toes

back to you steve and allison. thank you very much. first add many front and center in the nation's capitol this weekend. saturday night it was the annual white house correspondents association dinner. >> with no president trump and no overload of dress there. the focus did return to the freedom of the press and to that top white house officials responding to questions about the president wanting to sue the media. >> let's get the details from fox5 political reporter ronica cleary who was at the correspondents dinner and here with us this morning. how are you. >> it's great to be here. happy monday, guys. >> happy monday. >> the freedom of the press came back to the forefront. >> a few weeks donald trump was frustrated with the new york times. said they had been getting him wrong for some time. and that maybe we should change libel laws that was the tweet and it's funny with this news cycle and with the intensity of it, i had actually spoke with our own bernie logan about asking that in the press briefing that day. didn't get a question. the next day it's a new set of questions, a new hot topic. it just kind of
things are happening so quickly. so over the weekend in a sit down interview with reince priebus you have the opportunities to ask those questions that get lost in the news cycle. it came up on cbs listen to what reince priebus had to say about that tweet from a few weeks ago. >> i think it's something that we've looked at and how that gets executed or red whether that goes anywhere is a different story, but when you have articles out there that have no basis or fact and we're sitting here 24/7 cable companies writing stories about contact couldn't tax with russia -- >> do you think the president should be able to sue the new york times. >> here's what i think. i think newspapers and news agencies need to be more responsible with how they report the news. >> so there he is saying they've looked into it this very vague idea. now, when i first did cover the
tweet, we reminded ourselves it was a supreme court ruling from the '60s that was actually in a case against the new york times that ruled that basically ruled in favor of libel laws and libel laws are actually rooted in the state. so the idea that the president can change libel law social security really not one that -- >> you would have to change the constitution. >> exactly. it doesn't have much founding but eighths conversation that they've obviously brought up. >> here's the thing. why didn't the administration if the administration is not happy with the way that it is being portray in the media those laws as you mentioned libel laws are rooted in the states. they are there, though, now granted the public is a public -- president is a public figure. why doesn't the administration just use the laws that are available now first and then if that doesn't work, think about changing things? >> it doesn't seem like they're even using the laws there are there first. a lot of mess. >> that is an interesting point. big conversation this week especially in least correspondents dinner was that this administration is very media friendly. and that they do a ton of press and that they have a
availability and they have these press briefings every day and the press even though there was in rumor more in talk maybe the press would leave the white house we are still in the white house for the daily press briefings. so when you say why aren't they do doing more it's sometimes difficult to know what it is they really feel. maybe it was a tweet out of frustration feeling the reporting isn't totally acc accurate. >> when you say -- and to be fair, the tweet i believe the question mark after, you know, change libel laws? from the president. but talk about precedent s setting. if did it go after this huge established newspaper could trickle down and the press definitely i would imagine would definitely be, um, on notice. >> i think they are. to be fair, i think that some of the criticism is fair. and i do think there's isn't a over abundance and use of the a non us in sources. this 80 sim you regularly hear from the administration it certainly doesn't hurt, i always feel that it's important for us to evaluate our work want we do and make sure that we can stand it
so the press in the world that we live in is filled with everybody who picks up a cell phone, right? >> right. >> we all could use a little reflection but it's the conversation that is probably not going to go anywhere when we're talking about libel laws. >> the definition of the press definitely has changed even just the past few years. they're absolutely has to be accountable for everybody putting something out there in the public. >> we talk about the fun of the dinner. was there fun at the dinner. >> whoo! >> so different the tone if you're just getting caught up on this. just last dinner quite different from what this dinner was. >> right. this was my first white house correspondents dinner, so i don't have anything to compare it to. >> the president used to be there. >> i know. i did hear that. i did hear that. >> just letting you know. >> so, but, for my experience i actually thought the dinner was lovely. it really did feel like a great opportunity to celebrate those who are in the white house and those who cover the administration and for me, i had felt like what it should feel like. and it certainly didn't feel like there
celebrities because there were no celebrities there. >> media celebrities seeing. >> they did speak. we have a little sound if we want to listen to bernstein actually speak about it. and i will say before we go to it, i think that because the president wasn't there, however you feel about this, i do think the speakers took that opportunity to maybe be have some harsher more intense words than we might have heard had the president been sitting in the audience. or at the head table. so listen to this. >> almost inevitably unreasonable government secrecy is the end knee and usually the give away about what the real story might be. [ applause ] >> and when lying, lying is combined with secrecy, there is usually a pretty good road map in front of us. [ applause ] >> yes.
the lies. [ applause ] >> taking a more serious tone there. >> harsher. >> i mean from the dinners i've been to in the past there was the criticism but veiled in comedy. >> right. >> with the president there but a chance for the president to kind of strip down and have some fun as well. everybody just kind of that that light hearted, yes, there were jabs being thrown. but under the veil of comedy everybody kind of took it as good time. it went both ways. >> my mother used to say many a true word is said in jest. just because somebody is laughing doesn't mean they don't mean it. >> this time it comes across they mean it. >> exactly. there wasn't in veil of comedy. but of course minaj was the median there. >> he got good reviews. >> i got a lot of text messages. how is the room receiving it because i guess apparently the coverage didn't really let -- seem like people were laughing. buti think that people responded in a positive way. as a general rule. he is making fun of all of us at one point or another. >> sure. >> but you got to have a little thick skin in this

energy drink, and something very concerning was that they found there was a prolongation of something called the kt under val. that means it delayed the am of time that it takes for the heart to re-energize and get ready for the neck beat. so bottom line here, that is very dangerous. to me, that's very concerning. >> are these approved by the fda? who is watching this. fda over this. >> fda sanctions release of these because they're marked. >> they do. >> in the sense of they're just to level that is are supposedly safe or generally recognized as safe. however, if you look at people who are drinking the entire can the serving is actually half of the can. people generally drink the whole can or drink multiples in a day. that can be very dangerous particularly also for two sub sets of people. if you have an underlying cardiac issue you already have high blood pressure or prone to that these can certainly trigger abnormal rhythms. for people who, you know, generally are drinking two or three at a time,
