tv   CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin  CNN  July 6, 2018 12:00pm-1:00pm PDT

12:00 pm
>> oh, and the little girl patting her mom's back. as we wait for more of these reunions, the trump administration now says it needs more time to reunite these families as the deadline looms. more on that in a second. fir first, we continue on top of the hour. you're watching cnn. i'm brooke baldwin. let's get right into this massive effort to save those 12 boys trapped inside a thailand cave. this effort just got more urgent and increasingly dire. the monsoon season is here. you know that. the threat of heavy rainfall this weekend, though, hangs over these rescue efforts, and the air inside the cave, this is quite a concern after a former
12:01 pm
thai navy seal who volunteered to help has died. his oxygen ran out while he was navigating those underwater tunnels. the governor there says the air in the cave where the boys are is still safe and that they can run around and play. rescue teams have also drilled more than 100 holes in the cave looking for an opening, but thus far, to no avail. asia correspondent jonl than miller is there on the scene, and jonathan, can you talk to us a little bit more about the holes and of the 118 potential. i mean, what -- are they just trying anything? >> i think they are, brook. yeah. look, the situation is so desperate that -- and the getting out of the caves through these dangerous semi-submerged and often completely submerged tunnels, so incredibly dangerous for these 12-year-old boys. the death of that navy seal is really focused minds here and had difficult and how dangerous that is. any alternative means of escape from that chamber is being looked at very seriously.
12:02 pm
so far they've only managed to get down -- not far enough. it's about halfway down towards the chamber in which the boys are trapped. the items will flood, but they'll still got that option of looking for sinkholes until the rain starts. >> which is quickly in terms of the rain starting. i mean, is that days? can you give a quick timeline on that, jonathan?
12:03 pm
they are scattered showers all the time. there's been a bit of rain here today. the really heavy rain, while we thought it was going to be later this weekend, may hit early next week. that would be ideal. >> that would be. jonathan miller, thank you so much for being there for us. let's talk more about this. butch behind rick is with us. seasoned rescue diver. butch, let's just start with -- thank you so much for coming on. i want to start with you on these 100 holes that rescuers have drilled trying to find a root to save these boys, but they say there's only 18 potential. your take on that? >> it's an incredible chance that they hit something that worked, it would be great. as you pointed out already, they're still looking at their main option as bringing them out through the water, possibly under water. >> and given the fact that a
12:04 pm
former thai navy seal died, his oxygen ran out. i understand is can lap, right, when you are navigating these sorts of caves and tunnels. how do you feel about these boys, some of whom can't swim, attempting this. >> oshlgly we said that the option you mentally had to accept the fact that none of them could swim. we would be looking at a total group of nonswimmers. one of the difficulties for the divers other than the actual trained cave divers, they're not wearing redundant breathing system. they're going in with a single scuba tank with compressed air, and they're not able to have a secondary alternate air source. when an emergency system occurs, they don't have a backup plan for the rescuers, including the navy seals. >> if they do attempt this with the boys under water to get out of the caves, and some places
12:05 pm
are quite dark, are the boys attached to these seals? how do they navigate the waters along side these rescuers? >> boys would actually be, as i have pointed out once before, kind of like in a pouch of a mother kangaroo. basically they would be encapsulateed in a full face mask or some sort of a mask that allows them to breathe. certainly some protective equipment, clothing, wet suits. we don't want them cutting get. our boys would basically be trained, talked to, taught, trained how to deal with the concept. they're going to be just still, and the rescuers are going to basically carry them out like the mother of a kangaroo. >> wow. bruce behind rick, thank you so much. we'll talk more as we get more
12:06 pm
information. i hear you, and it just sounds -- is sounds rescue ri risky. >> we still have no actual answers about how many children are still detained. how many are still alone in a country foreign to them.
12:07 pm
>> senator elizabeth warren. senator killibrand, and the mayor of new york city, bill de blasio, have already called for isis abolition. a leading candidate for governor of new york. actually even appallingly called this agency a terrorist organization. the american people have a right to their opinions, but these spurus attacks on ice by our political leaders must stop. he didn't answer that question. a tale of two economies now. u.s. jobs booming. businesses adding more than 213,000 jobs in june. a sign of a strong healthy
12:08 pm
economy. this positive jobs report comes as president trump officially launches a massive trade war with china after months of escalating tensions. china, i mean, calling it the biggest trade war, their quote, in history, striking back with retaliatory tariffs. cnn -- joins uz live from the floor of that new york stock exchange to talk to us about the impact. who is most impacted here. >> well, first of all, a trade war is bad for business. period. both sides are being impacted. for one, the u.s. could be impacted. a real impact from these retaliatory tariffs from china because they're on these high value american exports. if demand drops, that means that's going to affect the american company that's here in the u.s.
12:09 pm
for china tariffs placed on their goods, they're on these high-tech industries that china is trying to excel in, likes err aerospace, robotics, manufacturing, and cars. each side is getting dinged in this trade war. if you look at what's happening here on wall street, investors are really just shrugging it off because they saw this coming. it's a feeling of who is going to blink first. >> allison, thank you. meantime, president trump spends the week in bedminster, new jersey, back in washington d.c.
12:10 pm
more negative headlines coming out of the protection agency. lease go to sarah westwood, and, sarah, talk to me about this report. it's coming out of politico on this study that they're saying the e.p.a. buried its a cancer study. it's a study they say they have purposely blocked from the public. tell me more. >> that's right, brook. the e.p.a. may be free of its most controversial leader, but it's not free from controversy today. current and former echl p.a. officials tell politico that the agency is suppressing a report about the dangers of inhaling formal formaldahyde vapor. it's coming at the end of the obama administration, and it links formaldahyde to illnesses like leukemia, and the officials say this report is being kept from the public as part of an ongoing effort to undermine the scientific research that the e.p.a. performs. now, an e.p.a. spokesperson denied that the reports released as being delayed intentionally. telling cnn in a statement
12:11 pm
assessments of this type are often the result of needs for particular rulemaking and undergoing extensive intra-agency and inter-agency process. outgoing epa head scott pruitt testified before congress all it is way back in january that this study was nearing completion, and months later lawmakers were asking the e.p.a. when they were going to get to see a copy of this key study, and obviously, brook, this is coming at a very chaotic time for the e.p.a. already with pruett's resignation yesterday and uncertainty about his acting replacement, andrew wheeler. brook. flow testers are expected in london, and now the british deposit is saying that trump will largely try to avoid london altogether. the u.s. ambassador to the u.k. is actually saying that's not the case. can you tell me what the plan
12:12 pm
is. there have been mass protests against trump taking place in london. president trump will visit oxfordshire, the birthplace of winston churchill for a black high dinner. he will visit buckinghamshire to theresa may's country estate. for the highly anticipated photo op with queen elizabeth ii he will be at windsor castle. flun of those will take place in london, but they are downplaying the fact saying that president trump is not trying to avoid confronting that's protests. brook. >> sarah westwood, thank you. president trump meantime takes a not so vailed swipe against not just one, but two republican icons slamming george h.w. bush and senator john mccain, and in the same event praising vladimir putin. also hear from the mother who
12:13 pm
walked out to the e.p.a. -- he has resigned this week. let's get her reaction. , are you okay? even when i was there, i never knew when my symptoms would keep us apart. so i talked to my doctor about humira. i learned humira can help get, and keep uc under control when other medications haven't worked well enough. and it helps people achieve control that lasts. so you can experience few or no symptoms. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores.
12:14 pm
don't start humira if you have an infection. be there for you, and them. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, control is possible. you might or joints.hing for your heart... but do you take something for your brain. with an ingredient originally found in jellyfish, prevagen is the number one selling brain-health supplement in drug stores nationwide. prevagen. the name to remember.

12:17 pm
a bit of this. why not? your hotel should make it easy to do all the things you do. which is what we do. crowne plaza. we're all business, mostly. zbreer back to watching cnn. brook baldwin comes from his upcoming summit. russia attacked and is still attacking the u.s. elections. it seized crima from ukraine using military force. shot down a commercial airline in ukraine, killing almost 300 people. it has accused of poisoning an ex-spy and his daughter in the u.k., and it supports a murderous dictator in syria. just this week a group of republican lawmakers had a cozy meeting in moscow on america's independence day no less. just as bipartisans sent in investigators who concluded that, yes, russia did indeed medal e meddle in the 2016
12:18 pm
election. >> be prepared. president putin ichb is kgb and this and that. putin is fine. he is fine. we're all fine. with me now cnn global affairs analyst max boot. max, let's take -- let's take his argument at face value. he wants to make inroads with russia, right? fine. but if you are taking a page from his deal-making mantra, toughness being one of the top rules, where is the toughness and why isn't it there? >> it's hard to find, brook. in fact, you know, if you look at his negotiating strategy with north korea which has been a total failure so far. he has been praising kim jong un to the skies in terms that are
12:19 pm
kplooulgs completely unbecoming for an american president, much as he is now praising putin, and we have nothing but empty promises from north korea. we're not going to get anything substantial from russia. i don't think these are negotiating strategies per se. i think this is just evidence of trump's -- the fact that he likes these dictators. he feels an afint for people like putin and kim jong un who are tough and strong and as he puts it. >> well, on your empty promises note, i mean, going into this meeting with putin, there have to be concerns about what trump might promise putin. what do you think are the biggest talking points? what should maybe one be worried about? >> well, there's a lot to be worried about given that in the run-up to the summit with putin trump has been trashing our allies. even just that the montana rally on thursday he was saying where sh mucks were paying for nato. he is launching against our trade partners, and so the question is what, if anything, is he going to give away to vladimir putin. something he greatly add myers. my concern is in a there is talk
12:20 pm
of some kind of deal whereby the u.s. would russia the illegal russia an exation of crima, and in return putin made some kind of promises about how they will back off the israeli border in syria with promise that is i think are very unlikely to be kept. >> military exercises. >> joint military exercises, and so you don't really know what trump is going to come out with after having a private audience with putin. >> right. if one will ever know, right, if it's just the two of them. attacking john mccain and bush 41. in case people missed it, roll it. >> even though we got a little surprise vote that evening, you all remember that evening.
12:21 pm
somebody came in with a thumbs down after campaigning for years that he was going to repeal and replace. thousand points of light. i never quite got that one. what the hell is that? has anyone ever figured that one out? it was put out by a republican, wasn't it? >> bush 41 nearly 30 years ago. >> we can find mean and reward by serving higher purpose than ours. a shining purpose. the illumination of 1,000 points of light. >> so, max, the president is attacking not only two american icons, but two republican icons. >> this is disgusting, brook, and not just two republican icons, but two american war heroes, both of whom are in very poor health at the moment. this is just a sign of how deplorable donald trump truly is. the fact that he spent this
12:22 pm
rally praising vicious dictators like putin and his negotiations with kim jong un, mocking elizabeth warren in racist terms, mocking maxine waters, i would say, in racist terms, attacking the free press, attacking his own justice department, attacking these american war heroes. the only thing that's more disgusting in all of this is the fact that all these people in the audience were applauding and the fact that 90% of -- they were laughing. they thought it was a hoot. they thought it was wonderful. the fact that 90% of republicans approved of this presidency, of this kind of behavior, that's why i'm not a republican anymore after a lifetime in the gop. i just -- i can't take it. it's -- to me it's just rep rehencible. we've got you today. you, max boot, pronounce that you are leaving the republican party. you are rooting for democrats to take over. explain more of that to me.
12:23 pm
>> well, the point that i made in the article is that donald trump is not a conservative president. he is a white nationalist president, and he has transformed the republican party into his image. i mean, he is somebody who refers to latino immigrants as animals who are breeding and infesting. he says that african countries are -- he praises white supremacists as being very fine people. this is not the republican party i joined in the 1980s under ronald reagan. it stands for everything that i find terrible and deplorable, and so i can't support that party, and, therefore, i can't support republicans who back donald trump as almost all of them do, and that's why i'm rooting for a democratic victory in november. >> wow. you know, i was talking about your article yesterday. i had two republicans on, two anti-trump republicans on who talked about how emotional -- you know, one's political party is. it's emotional, it's permanent for them. >> of course. >> they couldn't quite go as far as you did as saying, all right, i'm rooting for the democrats as a life-long republican. i'm curious to you, how many of
12:24 pm
your fellow conservatives have agreed with you, and how many have said that you are nuts? it's a pretty clear equation. either you are voting for democrats or you are de facto supporting donald trump. that is the choice in november. you cannot tell me that there are republicans who will hold donald trump to account because we have seen in the last year and a half that that is just not the case. that republicans are too scared of him or too supportive of him. in any case, they are not going to act as a check and balance on drt donald trump, which is what this country desperately needs, and that's why, you know, you don't have to agree with democrats on every position they take. i certainly don't. i think it's imperative for the health of our democracy that the opposition party take control of congress to act as a check on donald trump's attempts to undermine our democracy and divide our country.
12:25 pm
>> still tolk, days before his resignation, a mother confronted and then e. approximate a. chief scott pruett demanded he quit his job, and now he has done that. we'll get her reaction to his resignation. she joins me live next.

12:30 pm
pruett's duties. he is a former coal lobbyist with close ties to the industry. unlike pruett is not a d.c. outsider. he worked on the senate environment and public works committee, and we know -- he knows the ins and outs of how washington works. he was also top aide to oklahoma senator jim inhoff, a vocal denier of climate change. when he was asked during his confirm's hearing back in november, this is what he said. "i believe man has an impact on the climate, but what is not completely understood is what that impact is. one mother made some news this week when she flat out confronted scott pruett at a restaurant. here is the moment have you to see. >> this is my son. he loves animals. he wants clear air. he wants clean water. we need somebody at the e.a.a.
12:31 pm
that does protect our environment. somebody that believes in climate change. >> with pe now the woman you saw on the video, mom and teacher, kristen. guess you got what you wanted. scott pruett is out. that was the first goal. but, unfortunately, his policies are still in place. scott pruett, according to donald trump was doing an outstanding job. of course, what scott pruett was doing was detrimental to america and to american citizens, to our children, to the next generation. now trump has appointed andy wheeler, who is going to do the exact same thing. take apart our regulations. you know, exciting moment to see that scott pruett has resigned. i think that certainly shows that there is power in the people. there are so many people who have been working to get scott pruett out of office from the very beginning, and i was only one very, very, very small part
12:32 pm
of putting the heat on there at the end. we have to keep it up. >> let me read for you. i don't know if you read his letter, but i read his whole resignation later earlier, and halfway through he says this. this is a letter to the president. i count it as a blessing to be serving you in any capacity. however, the unrelenting attacks on me personally, my family are unprecedented and have taken a sizable toll on all of us. your reaction to that? >> the unrelenting toll that his policies and his regulation roll-backs are taking on the american people is what we're all tired of. if you didn't want to be attacked, you shouldn't be attacking our environment. i mean, that resignation letter, i won't dwell on that for too long because scott pruett is gone, but that was the most snifelling disturbing letter, just to show that somebody that was in office had that mindset of being loyal to the president. only as opposed to serving the
12:33 pm
american people is very disturbing. that just goes to show that, you know, we have a congress who was willing to put scott pruett in that position. we had a congress who took somebody who had sued the e.p.a. i think it was 14 times for their efforts to protect the environment. then put him in the position of pretending to protect the environment. now the senate has already confirmed wheeler who is going to be the exact same thing. i think this goes to show that we do not have a congress in place who is willing to stand up to the president who is willing to stand up for the american people and the health of our children if anything this shows us we all need to get to the polls its. it's urge anti. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> it's warning north korea on denuclearization that may not be in the cards. why is the president not buying it? it's time for the 'lowest prices of the season'

>> interview state mike pompeo is in north korea trying to nail down tangible signs that kim jong un is committed to denuclearization. he is expected to meet with the north korean leader before leaving tomorrow. zo breelts bring in the former specialist for north korean policy. this is secretary pompeo's third trip to north korea in so many
12:39 pm
months. the fact that they haven't yet nailed down this meeting with kim jong un this would be a poor sign if pompeo doesn't get to meet with kim jong un. that would be the most negative sign i can think of quite honestly, brooke. there's been glashl speed with which things have been done since the singapore meeting almost a month ago. nothing that the north koreans promised that they would do immediately including returning the remains of american soldiers. it has not happened. if he doesn't get to any of them, it's very bad news.
12:40 pm
on this rip roaring glashl speed on die nuclearization, joe, we know that by having the singapore summit, the trump has always elevated kim on the world stage, and that kim has this win with the seizing of the unilateral military exercises on the peninsula, does kim have all the leverage now? >> he has met now, what, she jing ping three times. trump, south korean president, twice. he is no longer the kind of character tour that we used to see him as. now he is seen as a regional leader. meanwhile, everything that has been promised by president trump, well, it hasn't happened, and it just shows you how hard this is.
12:41 pm
we cannot approach it just because you have one meeting. things are resolved. no. we are in the states wrosh two years away from the next presidential lens e election. we know kim, he is in for life. he has to know that there will be a new u.s. president either in two years or six years, and i'm just wondering what do you think kim is thinking. should he just run out the clock? >> does kim yong you know trust trump? right now all signs are, well, show me. did will be more show me, show me, and then the clock will have run out. i mean, this really begs the question, are we okay with north korea having nuclear weapons? that really is the issue at the
