WE GO TO KASEY HUNT.>>Reporter: EVEN BEFORE HIS STUNNING PRESS CONFERENCE ENDED, THE FIERY REACTION BEGINNING. SWIFT CONDEMNATION FROM SO MANY CORNERS OF AMERICAN LIFE, INCLUDING MEMBERS OF THE PRESIDENT’S OWN PARTY. REPUBLICANS UPSET HE DOUBLED DOWN, BLAMING BOTH SIDES AGAIN FOR THE VIOLENCE. REPUBLICAN CONGRESSWOMAN ROSS TWEETING BLAMING BOTH SIDES FOR CHARLOTTESVILLE? NO. BACK TO RELATIVISM WHEN DEALING WITH KKK, NAZI SYMPATHIZERS, WHITE SUPREMACISTS? JUST NO. MARCO RUBIO SAYING, QUOTE, A TERROR ATTACK BY WHITE SUPREMACISTS. MARK WARNER TWEETING, NO WORDS. AND BEYOND THE BELTWAY, CELEBRITIES AND SPORTS STARS WEIGHING IN. LeBRON JAMES WRITING ON TWITTER, HATE HAS ALWAYS EXISTED IN AMERICA. YES, WE KNOW THAT. BUT DONALD TRUMP JUST MADE IT FASHIONABLE AGAIN, BUT THE PRESIDENT DID EARN PRAISE FROM ONE CORNER, WHITE SUPREMACISTS WHO TOOK IT AS A SIGN OF ACCEPTANCE. DAVID DUKE, THE FORMER KKK GRAND WIZARD WRITING, THANK YOU, PRESIDENT TRUMP, FOR YOUR HONESTY AND COURAGE FOR TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT CHARLOTTESVILLE. AND SPENCER SAYING THE REMARKS WERE FAIR. MORE SHARP CRITICISM FROM RICHARD TRUMPKA SAYING HE’LL RESIGN FROM THE PRESIDENT’S MANUFACTURING COUNCIL. HE CAN’T TOLERATE BIGOTRY AND DOMESTIC TERRORISM.>>THAT COULD BE PARTICULARLY MEANINGFUL, BECAUSE HE REPRESENTS SO MANY OF THE BLUE COLLAR WORKERS WHO HELPED TRUMP TO VICTORY IN STATES LIKE MICHIGAN AND WISCONSIN.

THERE ARE OTHERS WHO SAY THAT THEY’LL STAY ON, BUT ALSO TONIGHT, LESTER, THE HOUSE SPEAKER, PAUL RY

Jeffrey Epstein hanged himself with bedsheet: report


I’M BILL HEMMER IN NEW YORK.>>Sandra: I’M SANDRA SMITH. WE’RE LEARNING NEW DETAILS ON THE TIME LINE OF THE DAY. WE’RE LEARNING ONE GUARD OF WAS A SUBSTITUTE. THE OTHER WAS REPORTEDLY NOT EVEN A CORRECTIONS OFFICER. THE NEW YORK POST NOW REPORTING EPSTEIN USED BED SHEETS TO HANG HIMSELF AND LEFT UNATTENDED FOR HOURS.>>Bill: AGENT NOW SEARCHING HIS U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS HOME AS ATTORNEY GENERAL BILL BARR VOWS TO FIND ANSWERS ON EPSTEIN’S DEATH.>>I WAS APPALLED AND INDEED THE WHOLE DEPARTMENT WAS AND FRANKLY ANGRY TO LEARN OF THE MCCs FAILURE TO ADEQUATELY SECURE HIS PRISONER. WE ARE NOW LEARNING OF SERIOUS IRREGULARITIES OF THIS FACILITY THAT ARE DEEPLY CONCERNING AND DEMAND A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION. THE FBI AND THE OFFICE INSPECTOR GENERAL ARE DOING JUST THAT. WE WILL GET TO THE BOTTOM OF WHAT HAPPENED AND THERE WILL BE ACCOUNTABILITY.>>Sandra: IN MOMENTS WE’LL SPEAK WITH RUDY GIULIANI IN STUDIO. WE BEGIN FIRST WITH BRYAN WITH DETAILS.>>Reporter: JEFFERY EPSTEIN KILLED HIMSELF WITH A BED SHEET WRAPPED AROUND HIS NECK TIDE — TIED TO THE BUNK GED AND HE KNEELED TO THE FLOOR AND STRANGLED HIMSELF WITH THE SHEET AND FOUND UNRESPONSIVE AT THE METROPOLITAN CORRECTIONAL CENTER SATURDAY. THE QUESTION IS HOW IS A HIGH-PROFILE INMATE LIKE EPSTEIN AT A FACILITY KNOWN FOR TIGHT SECURITY. EPSTEIN DID NOT HAVE A CELL MIGHT THAT NIGHT WHICH IS UNUSUAL TAKEN OFF SUICIDE WATCH. IT’S VERY RARE FON AN INMATE TO BE ON SUICIDE WATCH AND HIS PROFILE KEPT HIM IN THE SPECIAL HOUSING UNIT WHICH MAY HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THE CIRCUMSTANCES AROUND HIS DEATH.>>THE AVERAGE PERSON IS PLACED IN THE GENERAL POPULATION AFTER A SUICIDE WATCH. THE CHIEF PSYCHOLOGIST IN CONSULTATION WITH THE WARDEN DETERMINES HE’S NO LONGER A RISK AND THEY SAY OKAY BACK TO POPULATION. THERE’S ACTIVITIES PROGRAM, MORE ACCESS TO MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS AND CASE COUNSELLORS. THAT’S THE OPTIMAL SITUATION.>>WE KNOW EPSTEIN WAS NOT CHECKED ON SEVERAL HOURS PRIOR TO DEATH WHICH IS A VIOLATION OF NORMAL OPERATIONS CALLING FOR CHECK EVERY 30 MINUTES. THE UNION REPRESENTING TWO OF THE GUARDS RESPONSIBLE FOR WATCHING HE UNIT SAID THE GUARD OVERWORKED. ONE WORKED OVER 80 HOURS AND ONE VOLUNTEERED BECAUSE THE MCC HAS BEEN SHORT STAFFED FOR YEARS. TH “THE NEW YORK TIMES” REPORTS ONE WAS NOT EVEN AN OFFICER. AGE ERNTS — AGENTS ARRIVED TO SEARCH HIS PRIVATE ISLAND SHOWING THEY’RE STILL INVESTIGATING HIS SEX TRAFFICKING NETWORK WHICH MAY INCLUDE HIS FORMER DESCRIBED AS EPSTEIN’S ACCUSERS KNOWN AS HIS MADAME AND ARRANGING SEX WITH UNDERAGE GIRLS. LAWYERS FOR HIS ACCUSERS ARE NOW ASKING A FEDERAL JUDGE TO

Conway lectures Dems for politicizing El Paso, Dayton shootings


OFFICERS? JILLIAN: UM-HUH. STEVE: WONDERFUL. AINSLEY: THANK YOU, JILLIAN. BRIAN: LET’S BRING IN KELLYANNE CONWAY COUNSELOR TO THE PRESIDENT THE UNITED STATES. WITH SO MUCH GOING ON THE PRESIDENT IS ABOUT TO AMEND THE SCHEDULE BECAUSE OF THE SHOOTINGS OVER THE WEEKEND. WHERE IS HE — IS HE LOCKED IN TO EL PASO AND DAYTON ON WEDNESDAY?>>WELL, GOOD MORNING. THIS IS SOMETHING THE PRESIDENT HAS DONE WHEN AMERICANS WHO FACE TRAGEDY IN THE PAST HE HAS GONE TO MEET THE HURRICANE DEVASTATED AREAS. HE CERTAINLY WENT TO PARKLAND, FLORIDA, LAS VEGAS, NEVADA AFTER MASS SHOOTINGS THERE. AND IT HAS BEEN HIS DESIRE AND HIS INTENTION SINCE HE LEARNED OF THESE TRAGEDIES OVER THE WEEKEND TO GET ON THE GROUND AND VISIT THE PEOPLE THERE, TO THANK THE FIRST RESPONDERS AND THE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS, TO MEET THOSE WHO ARE HEALING FROM THEIR WOUNDS TO TALK TO LAW ENFORCEMENT AND FEDERAL FBI AGENTS AND OTHERS WHO ARE STILL ON THE GROUND OFFERING RESOURCES AND SUPPORT. SO THIS IS WHAT HE HAS DONE. AND I THINK YOU SAW A PREVIEW OF THAT YESTERDAY HERE IN THE WHITE HOUSE WHEN DESPITE THE POLITICIZATION OF HIS HIS POLITICAL OPPONENTS THE PRESIDENT IS TRYING TO BRING THE COUNTRY TOGETHER, HEAL A NATION BUT ALSO OFFER CONCRETE PROPOSALS ON HOW TO MOVE FORWARD AS A NATION. LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING I’M HOPPING MAD THIS MORNING BECAUSE I SEE VERY LITTLE SCANT COVERAGE OF THE FACT THAT THE DAYTON SHOOTER HAS BEEN CONFIRMED AS HAVING A TWITTER FEED THAT WAS SUPPORTIVE OF ANTIFA, THAT WAS SUPPORTIVE OF ELIZABETH WARREN, BERNIE SANDERS, OBVIOUSLY 9, 10 YEARS AGO IN HIGH SCHOOL HE HAD A KILL LIST FOR BOYS, A RAPE LIST FOR GIRLS AND THERE IS SCANT ATTENTION BEING PAID TO THIS. PEOPLE ARE ALLOWING NONSTOP PUNDITRY BY AT LEAST TWO OF THE PRESIDENTIAL DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL HOPEFUL WAS WHO ARE MIRED 0% OR LOW SINGLE DIGITS. BRIAN: TALKING ABOUT TIM RYAN AND BETO O’ROURKE.>>YOU MENTIONED THEM BETO O’ROURKE FROM THE VAN IF I FAIR VANITY FAIR PROJECT CANDIDACY. OUT THERE SCREAMING ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP. THAT DOESN’T HEAL A SINGLE SOUL OR PREVENT ANOTHER MASS SHOOTING. ELIZABETH WARREN WAS RAISING MONEY FOR SENATE CANDIDATE DOUG JONES AND TINA SMITH. SHE IS RAISING MONEY IN EMAIL APPEAL TALKING ABOUT THE MASS SHOOTING. THIS IS A DISGRACE AND IF NOBODY ELSE IS GOING TO TALK ABOUT IT I’M GOING TO TALK ABOUT IT. THE RESPOND DID NOT RESPOND IN KIND. THEY POLITICIZED THIS OVER THE WEEKEND. THEY ALL BLAMED HIM. AND I WANT TO NAME AND SHAME THEM NOW. BECAUSE HE DID NOT RESPOND IN KIND. THEY WANT TO BE PRESIDENT. HE IS THE PRESIDENT. AND IS HE TRYING TO BRING THE PRESIDENT TOGETHER AND HAVE CONCRETE BIPARTISAN, BUY CAMERAL STEPS. THE RED FLAG LAWS HE IS THE GUY WHO SIGNED THE FIX NICS ACTED INTO LAW. DID HE AWAY WITH BUMP STOCKS AFTER THE LAS VEGAS SHOOTING WHERE LAW ENFORCEMENT SAID THEY NEVER FOUND A MOTIVE FOR THAT MONSTER. AND HE IS DENOUNCING WHITED SUPREMACY AND THEY ARE OUT THERE DENOUNCING HIM. AMERICA, TAKE A LOOK AT IT AND DON’T FORGET IT. AINSLEY: IT’S NOT GOING TO BRING THESE INDIVIDUALS BACK BY PLACING BLAME. WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. EVEN THE DAD OF ONE OF THE PARKLAND VICTIMS SAID THESE VICTIMS AREN’T EVEN IN THE GROUND YET. THEY AREN’T EVEN BURIED AND HE WAS CREDIT SIDING THE POLITICIANS PLAYING THE BLAME GAME.>>NO. IT’S REALLY TERRIBLE. I WANTED PEOPLE TO KNOW THAT WHEN BERNIE SANDERS SUPPORTER, SOMEBODY ADMITTED THAT HE WATCHED A DIFFERENT CABLE NETWORK FOR HIS POLITICAL NEWS SHOT UP STEVE SCALISE WHO WAS WITHIN INCHES OF HIS LIFE AND OTHERS ON THAT BASEBALL FIELD TWO YEARS AGO. WE DIDN’T RUN OUT AND SAY OH, HE WAS HUNTING DOWN REPUBLICANS AND BERNIE SANDERS SUPPORTER. WE WERE WORRIED ABOUT STEVE SCALISE’S LIFE BEING SAVED. THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY THE DARKEST DAY IN THIS WHITE HOUSE IN THE FIRST YEAR IN MY OPINION. THE PRESIDENT AND THE FIRST LADY, THE VICE PRESIDENT, SECOND LADY AND OTHERS WENT TO VISIT MR. SCALISE IN THE HOSPITAL. WE DIDN’T RUN AROUND SAYING THAT FOR MONTHS ON END. WHEN MORE RECENTLY, WHEN SOME EVIL, TWIST YOU HAD DEPRAVED LUNATIC WAS TRYING TO SHOOT UP AN ICE DETENTION CENTER IN WASHINGTON STATE QUOTING THE EXACT LANGUAGE THAT OCASIO-CORTEZ HAD JUST USED WE DIDN’T BLAME HER. SO THIS HAS TO STOP. LET’S STOP PRETENDING. BRIAN: WERE YOU SURPRISED PRESIDENT OBAMA WEIGHED IN.>>NO I WASN’T SURPRISED AT ALL. AGAIN, DIMENSION IN HIS PRESIDENCY THERE WERE ABOUT 24 MASS SHOOTINGS THREE TIMES THE NUMBER OR MUCH HIGHER THAN THE NUMBER OF THE THREE ADMINISTRATIONS PREVIOUS TO HIM COMBINED? AGAIN, NOBODY BLAMES HIM FOR NEW TOWN, CONNECTICUT. AND HE HAD HIS OPPORTUNITY TO GO AND TRY TO HEAL THE NATION. STEVE: RIGHT. AND THEY SHOULD NOT.>>AND NOBODY SHOULD. STEVE: NO. OF COURSE. BECAUSE IT IS SO POLITICAL AND WASHINGTON REALLY AT THE OTHER END OF PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE NOT MUCH GETS DONE. AND SO –>>– THEY ARE NOT EVEN HERE. THEY ARE ON RECESS. THE PRESIDENT IS HERE RIGHT BEHIND ME WORKING TODAY. STEVE: HE.>>THEY ARE WELCOME TO COUPLE BACK. STEVE: BECAUSE THERE IS SUCH A TOXIC ENVIRONMENT RIGHT NOW AND CONGRESS CAN’T GET ANYTHING DONE. THERE IS A STORY IS THAT TRUE PRESIDENT HAS SPOKEN TO THE ATTORNEY GENERAL BILL BARR ABOUT USING REGULATORY POWER OR EXECUTIVE ACTION TO TRY TO DO SOMETHING JUST LIKE HE DID WITH BUMP STOCKS REGARDING THIS. IS THAT ON THE TABLE?>>IT IS ON THE TABLE. AND HE WAS IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH THE ATTORNEY GENERAL AND THE FBI DIRECTOR OVER THE WEEKEND. AND LET ME SAY SOMETHING ABOUT FBI DIRECTOR CHRIS WRAY. ON JULY 23RD, HE TESTIFIED TO CONGRESS ABOUT DOMESTIC TERRORISM, ABOUT THE INCREASE IN ARRESTS AS GOES TO TERRORISM. HE TESTIFIED THERE WERE ABOUT 100 ARRESTS FOR DOMESTIC TERRORISM THE LAST THREE QUARTERS AND 100 ARRESTS FOR INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM. WHY IS THIS RELEVANT? AFTER 9/11 THE FOCUS IS ON INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM. SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING WAS ABOUT PACKAGES. DIRECTOR WRAY AND THE FBI ARE SAYING SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING IS NOT JUST ABOUT PACKAGES IT’S ABOUT PEOPLE. THIS GUY IN DAYTON, OHIO, HAD A KILL LIST AND RAPE LIST, THE AUTHORITIES COULD NOT HAVE THAT INFORMATION ABOUT HIS HIGH SCHOOL RECORD FOR HIS — WHEN HE WENT TO PROCURE FIREARMS LEGALLY AND GOT THEM LEGALLY. THEY HAD SOME TRAFFIC STOP IN HIS. STEVE: THAT’S GOT TO BE CHANGED. THE POLICE CAME IN. THEY FILED A REPORT APPARENTLY. BUT BECAUSE HE WAS A MINOR HE WAS ONLY 17, EVEN THOUGH THE NEXT DAY AFTER THIS BECAME PUBLIC, YOU KNOW, IN THIS PARTICULAR TOWN, ONE THIRD OF THE SCHOOL DIDN’T SHOW UP BECAUSE THEY –>>– THEY DIDN’T SHOW UP THEY WERE AFRAID.>>THIS WASN’T YESTERDAY OR LAST WEEK IT WAS A DECADE. THIS HAS TO STOP. EVERYBODY NEEDS TO STOP PREENING IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA AND STOP RAISING MONEY ELIZABETH WARREN I’M TALKING TO YOU. START WORKING WITH US TO STOP THAT I WANT TO TALK ABOUT DIRECTOR WRAY. HE TESTIFIED ABOUT THE — THAT. BRIAN: DOMESTIC TERROR.>>DOMESTIC TERROR. HE TESTIFIED ON JULY 23RD.>>DO YOU KNOW WHY IT GOT VERY LITTLE ATTENTION BECAUSE THE NEXT DAY BOB MUELLER WAS GOING TO TESTIFY. ALL THESE MADE-FOR-TV LAWYERS. TELLING WHAT YOU BOB MUELLER WOULD SAY NEXT DAY AND IGNORING THE TESTIMONY OF THE FBI DIRECTOR ON THE VERY ISSUES THAT THE PRESIDENT WAS TALKING ABOUT YESTERDAY. HE DENOUNCED WHITE SUPREMACY, RACISM, BIGOTRY, EVIL UNEQUIVOCALLY AND SPECIFICALLY. NOBODY PAID ATTENTION TO WHAT DIRECTOR WRAY SAID. THE OTHER THING I JUST WANTED TO MENTION IS THERE WAS ONE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT HIS NAME IS ERIC SWALWELL. WHAT WAYS HIS MAJOR PLOT FORM? GUNS. HE DROPPED OUT OF THE RACE BEFORE EVERYBODY ELSE. THE DEMOCRATS HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO TALK ABOUT THIS. THEY DIDN’T. THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT DONALD TRUMP. HE IS NOT TALKING TO THEM HE IS TALKING TO THE NATION. HUGE DIFFERENCE ON DISPLAY BETWEEN RUNNING YOUR MOUTH AND BEING THE PRESIDENT AND TRYING TO BRING TOGETHER A NATION. AINSLEY: WHAT WAS THE PRESIDENT AGE. MOST KIDS GET IN TROUBLE FROM HIGH SCHOOL FOR MAYBE DRINKING UNDER AGE OR I DON’T KNOW TAKING THEIR PARENTS’ CAR OUT AFTER. HE HAD A KILL LIST OR RAPE LIST BUT TOO YOUNG TO PUT THAT ON HIS RECORD. WOULD THE PRESIDENT LOWER THE AGE? IF YOU DO SOMETHING THAT EXTREME THAT NEEDS TO BE ON YOUR RECORD EVEN IF YOU ARE 17.>>AINSLEY, AS WE KNOW THERE ARE KIDS, 16, 17, MAYBE EVEN YOUNGER PROSECUTE YOU HAD AS ADULTS FOR MURDER AS IT DID BY THIS MONSTROUS MURDERRIER. HE KILLED HIS OWN SISTER. THAT MAY HAVE HAPPENED FOR SURE. THERE IS ALSO A HIPPA LAW CONSIDERATION HERE. THE PRIVACY LAWS, OF COURSE, PROTECT US. AND THERE ARE MANY EXCEPTIONS TO HIPPA THAT HAVE, I THINK THAT HAVE BEEN CARVED OUT OVER TIME. I KNOW WE HAVE HAD ONE FOR THE OPIOID CRISIS. WE GOT ONE FROM HHS OFFICE OF CIVIL RICE ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO NOW. WE HAVE MET WAY TOO MANY GRIEVING FAMILIES WHOSE 18 OR 19-YEAR-OLD SON OR DAUGHTER WAS CHEMICALLY DEPENDENT, WAS ADDICT YOU HAD, WHICH IS A DISEASE AND NOT A MORAL FAILING, AND THEY HAD NO IDEA UNTIL THE CHILD WAS GONE BECAUSE — DEAD BECAUSE OF THE HIP PART OF THERE ARE EXCEPTIONS THAT CAN BE CARVED OUT. THAT IS ABSOLUTELY SOMETHING THAT’S ON THE TABLE FOR US TO LOOK AT. THERE IS A WAY TO PROTECT OUR PRIVACY AND OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS BUT STILL PROTECT THE CITIZENRY AS WELL. BRIAN: CAN I ASK YOU THIS? IS PRESIDENTING SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM AND SENATOR BLUMENTHAL’S PUSH TO ADOPT RED FLAG PROTECTION ORDERS? DOES HE FULLY BACK THAT LINDSEY GRAHAM CALL AHEAD OF TIME AND SAY THIS IS WHAT I AM PROPOSING.>>CHAIRMAN GRAM IN CLOSE CONTACT ABOUT THAT. WE WERE VERY HEARTENED TO SEE THAT IMMEDIATE BIPARTISAN REACTION BY BLUMENTHAL. CHAIRMAN GRAHAM OF SOUTH CAROLINA YESTERDAY. THE CHAIRMAN MENTIONED RED FLAG IN HIS SPECIFIC REMARKS YESTERDAY TO THE NATION. THANK YOU FOR MENTIONING THAT BASICALLY IT’S AN EMERGENCY ORDER WHERE WE’RE TRYING TO KEEP GUNS OUT OF VIOLENT CRIMINALS OUT OF PEOPLE WHO SHOULDN’T HAVE THE FIREARMS. AT THE SAME TIME, RESPECTING THE RIGHTS OF LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AND THEIR RIGHT TO CARRY FIREARMS. AGAIN, THIS PERSON IN DAYTON, OHIO, GOT THESE FIREARMS LEGALLY. THE MONSTER IN NEW TOWN, CONNECTICUT, WHOSE OWN MOTHER WAS AFRAID OF HIM USED THE MOTHER’S LEGALLY PROCURED FIREARMS TO KILL HER AND DOZENS OF OTHER INNOCENT PEOPLE IN THAT SCHOOL. SO, FOLKS, INSTEAD OF JUST SCREAMING AND RAISING MONEY ON THIS, LET’S THINK THROUGH SPECIFIC EXAMPLES THAT CAN BE AMELIORATED FOR THE NEXT TIME. THE PRESIDENT SPECIFICALLY WANTED TO INCLUDE IN HIS REMARKS YESTERDAY RED FLAG. HE ALSO TALKED YESTERDAY TO SENATORS SEPARATELY SENATORS MANCHIN, DEMOCRAT OF WEST VIRGINIA, TOOMEY REPUBLICAN OF PENNSYLVANIA. LOOKING AT THEIR LEGISLATION ABOUT BACKGROUND CHECKS. EVERYTHING IS ON THE TABLE. BUT WE NEED PEOPLE TO GET OFF TV, GET BACK TO WASHINGTON OR AT LEAST COME

Who Is Pete Buttigieg? | 2020 Presidential Candidate | NYT News


A millennial mayor with
a difficult last name. [Mispronunciations
of “Buttigieg.”] And, a knack for languages. [“Good morning, America”
in several languages.] Pete Buttigieg is in the
race for the White House. “I am running for president
of the United States.” So, who is he? Buttigieg, also known as — “Mayor Pete” — is the mayor
of South Bend, Ind. He got the job
when he was just 29 and quickly moved to reverse
the city’s economic decline. “Our hometown is not dead.” While serving as mayor,
Buttigieg took a leave of absence for a tour of duty
in Afghanistan. He came out as gay while
seeking re-election, and he won. So, what are his priorities? Ideologically he’s
a progressive, but he hasn’t unveiled
specific policies just yet. Instead, Buttigieg is
focusing on big ideas. “You know, our party
has this tendency to lead with the policies. First, we’ve got to
explain our values.” He wants to abolish the
electoral college, establish single-payer
health care and expand
the Supreme Court. “Yeah, but it’s not just
about throwing more justices on the court. What I think we need
to do is some kind of structural reform
that makes the court less political.” He’s also pushing for
the religious left to make a comeback. “No one party has a
monopoly on faith.” And, he thinks it’s time for
a younger voice in politics. “I mean, my face
is my message. A lot of this is
simply the idea that we need
generational change.” So, what’s his dynamic
with President Trump? Buttigieg is no fan of
the Trump administration, especially Vice President
Mike Pence, an opponent of
same-sex marriage and anti-discrimination laws. “And that’s the
thing I wish the Mike Pences of the
world would understand, that if you got
a problem with who I am, your problem is not
with me. Your quarrel, sir,
is with my creator.” And Trump has yet
to say or tweet anything about “Mayor Pete.” So, what are his chances? Buttigieg made a
name for himself when this appearance
on CNN went viral. “Do you think
Vice President Pence would be a better or worse
president than President Trump?” “Ugh.” And, it’s paying off. Buttigieg raised $7 million for his 2020 bid in
the first quarter, enough to qualify for the
first Democratic debates in June. But the question is whether
this relative newcomer to the national stage
can keep up his momentum throughout
the long primary season.

Democrats ask detention center management companies to turn over documents



a house panel is now demanding companies that manage detention centers along the southern border handover all communication related to their businesses the move comes after allegations surfaced that migrant kids were being retaliated against and even sexually abused by border agents and for more on this let's bring in nbc's leanne caldwell so Leanne what can you tell us about what lawmakers are trying to do what they're trying to accomplish with this move Jeff this is definitely an advancement of this investigation that House Democrats have opened months ago regarding what's happening at the border House Democrats right now are interested in the profits of these for-profit companies that are contracted with the government to detain these migrants they note that their profits have increased dramatically as a number of migrants being detained has also decreased or increased dramatically in the letter Democrats note that the CEOs of two of these companies have said have told their shareholders that they've had the best first quarter in their history and so Democrats are wanting they're giving these companies two weeks to comply with a document request they are wanting a vast array of documents ranging from the contracts that they have with a government their profit loss records and all communications that they've had with the government officials and they have to comply by July 24th Jeff can I ask you LeeAnn about these allegations of sexual assaults and the like is that something they're expected to address in these two weeks and talk about that as well so yes they do point out that these companies have had poor records that not only media reports have said this but also the DHS Inspector General has issued multiple reports talking about poor treatment of these migrants squalid conditions and so this is definitely included in these document requests I do want to note though that this these companies do not own these Border Patrol facilities these influx facilities that are that are in the news lately but it's the homes facility in Florida and a bunch of Democratic camp presidential candidates recently visited and former Trump chief of staff John Kelly is on the board there's a couple other companies that own many many of these facilities in the southwest and around the country that are holding these migrants amid all of these reports of poor treatment hey there I'm Chris Hayes from MSNBC thanks for watching MSNBC on YouTube if you want to keep up to date with the videos we're putting out you can click Subscribe just below me or click over on this list to see lots of other great videos

President Donald Trump Announces Acosta's Resignation As Secretary Of Labor | MSNBC



I got a call this morning early from Alex and I think he did a very good job yesterday under a lot of pressure he did a fantastic job and he explained it he made a deal that people were happy with and then 12 years later they're not happy with it you'll have to figure all of that out but the fact is he has been a fantastic Secretary of Labor and Alex called me this morning and he wanted to see me and I actually said well we have to press right out here so perhaps you just want to say it to the press but I just want to let you know this was him not me because I'm with them he was a he's a tremendous talent he's a Hispanic man he went to Harvard a great student and in so many ways I just hate what he's saying now because we're gonna miss him but please Ellen Thank You mr. president over the last week I've seen a lot of coverage of the Department of Labor and what I have not seen is incredible job creation that we've seen in this economy more than five million jobs I haven't seen that workplace injuries are down bucking it through your trend workplace fatalities are down a three-year trend that we had the safest year ever in mining the lowest number of fatalities ever in mining I have seen coverage of this case that is over 12 years old that has input and bedding at multiple levels of Department of Justice and as I look forward I do not think it is right and fair for this administration's labor department to have Epstein as the focus rather than the incredible economy that we have today and so I called the president this morning I told him that I thought the right thing was to step aside you know cabinet positions are temporary crust it would be selfish for me to stay in this position and continue talking about a case of 12 years old rather than about the amazing economy we have right now and so I submitted my resignation to the president affected seven days from today effective one week from today earlier this morning hey there I'm Chris Hayes from MSNBC thanks for watching MSNBC on YouTube if you want to keep up to date with the videos we're putting out you can click subscribe just below me or click over on this list to see lots of other great videos

'It's The People's Day; It's Not The President's Day' | Morning Joe | MSNBC



meanwhile this week President Trump is preparing for an all-out show of power to celebrate the fourth of July President Trump has requested an array of military vehicles including tanks and fighter jets to be showcased to the salute to America event in Washington on Thursday evening the president has taken it upon himself to arrange the festivities including his own speech from the Lincoln Memorial with military flyovers but many details have not yet been determined now with just days to go and we're gonna have some tanks stationed outside it's gonna be pretty careful with the tanks because the motors have a tendency not to like to carry everything so we have to put in certain areas but we have the brand-new German tank so we have the brand-new engineers have canvassed the Lincoln Memorial to determine whether the weight of the military vehicles might ruin the historic site that's according to Washington Post The Post reports the price tag for this event could be in the millions of dollars just for the air power alone Gene Robinson so at the end of the day when you get out there on the fourth of July what's this thing gonna look like oh really don't get me started on this okay if you raised kid now if you raise kids in the Washington area you know about the fourth of July in Washington and it is a glorious day it's a it's a wonder this there's like a fairly cheesy but wonderful patriotic music show on the steps of the Capitol there's people filling the mall America in its in its glorious diversity all kinds of people and and it's not a political day it's a day for for patriotism and then you have the fireworks and usually it's like cloudy and you bit off of you just see sort of diffuse flashes of colored light above a head and it's a terrible traffic jam it's just its glorious it's wonderful it's it's one of the best days of the year and watching despite the fact that it's usually 95 degrees and to take this and to make it into what seems to be kind of a combination Trump rally and Kim jong-un style military parade of hardware and equipment with Sherman tanks with just ridiculous of the last Sherman tank I think was was taken in the service in 1957 yeah but but it's just obscene it really is and I just I just hope it doesn't spoil the whole day I mean of course they're gonna try to have the biggest fireworks ever well that's okay but but presidents don't speak at the 4th of July and they it's the people's day it's not the Presidents Day and and he's trying to turn it into something else and and I just think it's it's I think it's awful ie the White House is trying to assure Americans that the President's speech at the Lincoln Memorial will not be a political one I just think we've learned over time he's incapable of that save I will say for his speech the D Day of Remembrance last month or a few weeks ago that's right and we all know this is his favorite part of the job Willie let's I think this is the part where we remind everybody that right before he came to the White House he was a show host and this is his favorite part of the job is choreographing these types of shows he wanted ever since he saw the Bastille Day celebration in France his own self tribute and that is what this is going to turn into but at what cost and if you read down in that story you'll see that this is really problematic to the DC City Council for several reasons they're studying what the impact would be at the weight of said tanks on for instance the foundations of the Lincoln Memorial the pyrotechnic display unlike any we've seen on the mall before it's going to come at a great cost he wants a military flyover again some of these jets cost $30,000 an hour to operate and then there's the question of freezing air traffic we've never had that before where now we're talking about the entire air traffic operation at Reagan National having to shut down for two hours and so the question is really what cost is this going to come of course the maggot crowd will be there and we'll be reveling in it but for everybody else and for people you know who gene mentioned who've done this years and years with kids this is gonna this is just gonna be a very different experience we'll see in a couple of days Heidi thank you very much still thanks for checking out MSNBC on YouTube and make sure you subscribe to stay up-to-date on the day's biggest stories and you can click on any of the videos around us to watch more four Morning Joe and MSNBC thanks so much for watching
