>> i'm alison kosik, it's tuesday, august 20th, 5:00 a.m. in the east. president trump and his economic officials are doing everything they can to downplay any fears of a recession, including knocking down reports the administration is considering cutting payroll taxes as a way to juice the economy. for millions of working americans 6.2% of their salary goes towards payroll taxes. they're usually used to finance programs like social security and medicare. a white house official said this, more tax cuts for the american people are certainly on the table, but cutting payroll taxes is not something under consideration at this time. however, trump has undercut his staffers before when they've said he was not considering something. the president continued to attack the federal reserve saying the central bank should cut interest rates by at least 100 basis points to boost the economy. basis points are a unit of measure for interest rates and cutting the rate as much as

trump is suggesting, it amounts to a full percentage point here and would actually give the fed less wiggle room to maneuver if a recession did begin. trump's attempt to politicize the fed is nothing new, but he has never called for a rate cut as drastic and as specific as this one. even commerce secretary wilbur ross stepped on the fed's supposed independence. >> we're very upset about the portion of the strength of the dollar that's due to monetary policy by the fed. we think that -- it's ridiculous -- our interest rates are high relative to -- >> interest rates is actually a tech tick the fed normally uses to stimulate the economy in a recession. larry kudlow is expected to speak with business and state leaders to discuss the economy this week. kudlow, by the way, was wrong about predicting a recession during the george w. bush

"the new york times" reported the islamic state is conducting guerrilla attacks and u.s. defense officials acknowledge the terror group stands to be a
2:37 am
lasting presence. nick paton walsh covered isis extensively on the battlefield and joins us from london. what are we learning? >> it is interesting to see these warnings come up as tightened tension occurs in northern syria. certainly the fate of some pockets held to the west of where isis were, but bit by bit insurgent style attacks against the syrian kurdish allies that were the bedrock of the u.s.-led campaign to move isis from its so-called caliphate territory. the fact that now we see these warnings is no surprise at all because even as isis began to lose its territory it was clear as sort of residual fighters were pushed out into the desert that they were beginning to plot attacks, again, those seem to have picked up in rhythm and there is still an enormous problem of isis supporters and isis fighters, tens of thousands of supporters held in one enormous refugee camp and thousands of fighters held in various pop up or permanent prisons there. the foreigners not necessarily
2:38 am
being taken home by their home lands and those in iraq and syria some say in iraq meeting a pretty stark end at the end of iraqi courts. the more enduring issue here is that when donald trump took over the pretty well thought out obama white house's campaign to defeat isis he didn't seem that interested in what many people who sort of fight insurgencies for a living say is the most important part and that was the economic and diplomatic back end of it. militaries know they can kill their way out of a problem but you still have to deal with the root causes of why there is an insurgency in the first place. that's what isis was in iraq, sunni grievances against the shia majority government and almost the same in syria, that sunni fight went on as part of a civil war and then it metastasized into what we saw isis becoming, the ugly and brutal face of sunni extremism, but many sunnis felt they had nothing in syria and iraq, to the military voice that might
2:39 am
stand up for their interests. none of that was tackled in terms of the aftermath of the isis campaign. there wasn't much reconstruction, hasn't been much of a bid to find the mainstream part of the sunni population that could become part of governments near the site. when you force thousands of people into camps and provide little future alternative to them, they are going to go back to the structures they knew beforehand and that was isis. the question is does this change u.s. policy? well, the money needs to come in, they were hoping the gulf states might provide some of that, it's been slow in coming, too. there's pressure from the russians and the syrian regime to perhaps erode a lot of the mandate that the syrian kurds in the northern part of syria have with the population there amongst, too, and there is a broader problem as well militarily of the cap that u.s. forces have on their presence there now. a lot of problems here, but as we've seen with insurgencies across the world, the less you deal with the root cause behind them simply using violence doesn't get rid of the problem,
