edward snowden will be staying in the transit area of the airport for nouz. a few hours ago it got complicated. it was reported he would be able to leave the airport and enter russia. >> he hasn't received the paper work for this temporary visa. phil black is joining us from inside that airport. phil, what do we know about snowden's status right now? >> reporter: well, his asylum application is in. we expect an answer on that at some stage can within the next three months or so. he could receive permission to leave the airport to enter russia officially while that application is still being processed. we know that looks unlikely to happen today.
9:01 am
his lawyer visited him in a secure area of this airport a short time ago and emerged saying that's not true. he's not yet received his documentation. his lawyer thought he would have received that documentation by now. he says it hasn't happened and he believe it's because it's an extraordinary case because of the very unusual circumstances surrounding edward snowden and his reasons for seeking asylum. probably not under estimating the impact of russian-u.s. relations. we know for certain today he's not leaving the airport. >> he never wanted to stay in russia. he wanted to get onto latin america. is there any word on his next step then? >> reporter: well, according to his lawyer who emerged from a meeting with him today he says
9:02 am
his intention is to stay in russia in the long term. he no longer wants to move on. his initial intention was not to stay here but to get to one of those latin american country who is offered him protection earlier. he thought the united states an its allies would go out of their way to stop him and probably be successful. he initially sought asylum here as a fallback position. he's only applying for temporary asylum. his lawyer says he's talking about staying in this country for the long term. >> that's a bit of a change. good to see you. phil black at that airport. >> i'm sure this was not his original plan. he wanted to move quickly to a country of safety. the russian president said no more talking about anything. we don't want to damage the relationship with the united

9:06 am
he's really trying to rally the faithful here, isn't he? >> reporter: exactly. that's why this visit was so important. when this first papel trip was planned it was when pope benedict was coming. when pope francis realized he was coming this is where he really wanted to come. this is what people call black pl mary. if you want to reach brazil's youth this is the way to do it. this virgin is revere ed across the country. she's this small black statue. this was an important visit and one he recognized would really resonate here. >> tell us about the security issues. i know the pope's visit has had
9:07 am
some problems. you had this small explosive device found and the driver that took the wrong turn and something on the metro last night. are they still concerned about his safety? >> reporter: absolutely. there's a lot of issues here. what has people least worried is that little explosive device. they don't think it had much to do with the pope's visit. the wrong turn that exposed the pope to so many well wishers adorining mobs but it still exposed the vulnerabilities. and last night the metro collapsed for a full two hours as hundreds of thousands of people were making their way to the beach for the opening mass here. the pope wasn't even at that mass. you can imagine what's coming in the next few days and in the next year or two where rio will

itself in this conflict by calling for mass demonstrations and making statements many will perceive to be as warnings to the muslim brotherhood. it's not clear what the outcome of these statements are going to be but you can feel that they're already fueling the drama in this conflict. the statements being made by the general at a military graduation ceremony. we didn't hear him give my life and career advice. he called for mass protest on friday and called for egyptians to give him a mandate to fight violence and terrorism. >> i ask the egyptians that all honest and trustworthy egyptians have to come out.

9:17 am
when you have the top general in uniform come out and call for mass demonstrations it's certainly going to create the impression among some that he's injecting the armed forces in this conflict and what remains unanswered is how this conflict is going to end. does this signal an effort by the armed forces to get aggressive with the muslim brotherhood and supporters of mr. morsi and if that's the case, is it going to be effective or call things down or make things worse? >> appreciate that. reza in cairo. spoke to an analyst who fears there's a spiral downward into chaos. what are expecting going to happen? >> that's why the obama administration says hold off. we're not sending weapons quite yet. it's been a busy day for the royal baby.

9:50 am
since he's taken office. he'll refer to obama care. he'll say that's a success. he'll talk about the jobs created, the economic growth recovering from the recession. he'll point out there's a long way to go. the middle class needs a lot of help. the poor americans, those who aren't middle class need a lot more help. i don't know if the president will get into this. as far as food stamps are concerned people who will survive only if the food provides these food stamps for them including a lot of children. back in 2009 when he took office 32 million dollar americans were dependent on food stamps. it's up to 47 million americans. the price tag is pretty significant for taxpayers. it was about $35 billion back in fiscal year 2008. the last fiscal year it's over $80 billion. poor people are needing more and

more help right now in the united states. it's hard to believe so many people would be hungry if it weren't for these food stamps. >> there's nothing that will get pass the republican controlled house. short of resisting any additional spending cuts, what can the president do? >> this is going to be a speech about vision. he's going to stay look at where we were five years ago and look at the progress we have made. in reality you're right. he's talking to a kcountry righ now only 29% of the people in this country believe we're headed on the right track. that's a real problem for him. he's got to convince the country we're headed on the right track and we have to gird ourselves for the battle that will be
9:52 am
coming up this fall. in particular, raising that nasty debt ceiling which republicans say they won't do unless they get more spending cuts. this has been his big victory after the election of getting rid of tax cuts for the rich. when he talks about the middle class many this country it resonates. i think he's trying to get back to that. >> you've learned that it's more of a vision speech and not a policy speech. some people thought a reset or pivot, no to policy initiatives. tell us why the change now. >> there are two goals. the first is to win a fight with republicans. the second is to win control of his second term. on the first the president is looking ahead to the spending fights that comes at the end of the september, beginning of october when congress looks to lay out the spending for next year and fight over the debt
9:53 am
ceiling. the president learned from the last night and he wants to define his terms now rather than wait till then. what he's going to fry to do is take it to the american people and say what are the priorities? do you care about spending for infrastructure? laying out projects that could lead to high paying jobs or do you want this battle to be about debt and spending. he's going to make obama care a big piece of that because the republicans will try to repeal open care as part of this. the other is redefining his second term because his approval numbers have been falling. he's not gotten anything significant done with congress in the six months he's been in office. when that happens they think get him out of town. take him to the people and remind them he's a likable guy. >> let's talk about the economy.
9:54 am
we're in a recovery. wall street is back in record numbers every day. housing prices are rebounding. despite all of that there's a lot of americans not feeling this recovery at all. low paying jobs still looking for work. how does the president reach out to them and make them feel good about themselves? >> don't own stocks. when you're talking about that venue, knox college. hundreds of jobs left for china. the people who lost the jobs are earning $10,000 less. it was a globalization story right there where the president is speaking today. eight years ago pfs a globalization story. today it's a hangover of the crisis story. you can see him in 2005. he looks an awful lot younger. those kids there were worried
9:55 am
about globalization and a financial crisis. i want to show you then and now. when the president was speaking then the jobless rate was 5% and gdp is 3.1%. today the jobless rate is higher. democrats are sharing this cartoon saying you can't blame the president for not creating jobs. that's like lucy blaming charlie brown for not kicking the football. this venue and this speech is political. >> thank you so much. we're keeping a close eye on those pictures. it goes back to the argument that the obama administration makes, eight years ago they inherited the crisis. they have moved the ball forward and saying time to take responsibility for the economy yourself. >> we're going to take a short break. be right back.
