5:13 am
about a possible economic downturn in the months ahead, and that's because of the president's re-election just 14 months from now in november of 2020. his calling card to win a second term is the economy and if there's any dip in the economy that spells political trouble. >> phil, let me ask you about the president defending this tweet here. you heard me talking about it with mike. obviously his claim that alabama would likely be hit. why not say i was wrong, frankly? >> as you both well know, this is not a president who will admit defeat and apologize simply. he doesn't want to back down. he sees that as a sign of weakness. he is digging in. this is now almost a full week of talking about the alabama threat and defending what he did and of course we saw that sharpie line on the map and this is characteristic of president trump. he's somebody who will not
5:14 am
apologize. >> meanwhile, the memes about the sharpie gate continue to ricochet. let me talk 2020 politics. this weekend you have 19 democrats in new hampshire. this coming week you're going to see the stage a lot smaller, ten of them on one stage including joe biden and elizabeth warren center stage. she's had a great summer, he remains the leader. what do you see? >> i'll be looking back at how they contrast. we have not seen them face to face on the stage. this debate in new hampshire and next wk marks a new phase in the democratic primary if that field has narrowed and the intensity grows on the front-runner, joe biden. >> phil rucker helping us out, nice to see you. >> thank you, you too. now for an important topic this morning, federal health officials have a important message for millions of people. stop vaping. on friday they reported that vaping has been linked to five deaths and 450 cases of serious

5:42 am
eye on or their loved ones look for? >> what the cdc said on the teleconference says don't buy any that are third party, off the street and consider not vaping at all. that's their big message behind everything. the symptoms are basically i just got something bad into my lungs. coughing, shortness of breath, chest pain. the strange symptoms that are unique are the nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain. they're sending out the message. it's important. get to your doctor quickly if you notice this. if you can stop vaping, please stop vaping because that's one of the things causing these problems. they simply don't know. they can't pinpoint the one thing that's causing this. the fda is wrestling with regulatory issues. cigarett cigarettes, it took us decades. >> it seemed like it happened so quickly, such a short amount of time. >> the popularity blew up in the last couple of years. >> it did, it blew up since i think 2007 is when they first came out. 2000 fine is when the fda started wrestling with how can

5:47 am
he committed drug related non-violent crimes and in 1999 was sentenced to life without parole under the three strikes law. terry's been incarcerated for more than two decades. >> have you seen folks walk out of there who have committed violent crimes? >> many a time. there is no justification for that reality. i'm just hoping that politicians will understand that. >> reporter: some politicians say these policies are problematic. even former president clinton admits his crime bill led to prison sentences that are too harsh. >> i signed a bill that made the problem worse. >> reporter: congress recently changed the law that put perry behind bars for life. president trump signed the first step act. >> we are a nation that believes in redemption. >> reporter: but it doesn't help people like perry because it only applies going forward, not
5:48 am
retroactively. >> we roughly estimate 40% of the life without parole population for drugs are three strikes. >> reporter: brittney barnet is fighting for that inmate. >> did you get calls from your clients after the first step act was passed. >> yes. so many calls. my team is taking calls to break the news to people that this law that would have freed them is not retroactive. >> reporter: kiara mason is perry's daughter. she drove seven hours to visit her dad in georgia. >> how are you feeling? >> i'm excited. i'm ready for this. >> that's kiara's car. she hasn't seen her dad in about seven years. >> we met up later to talk about her visit. >> reporter: what's been the effect of his absence on you and your family? >> him being absent from all of the milestones that i've actually reached in my life,
5:49 am
it's been really tough. >> what did your dad say about the law. >> he's been saying there will be a law passing soon and be it's going to help me come home immediately. >> did he think it was going to affect him? >> he definitely did. he definitely had his hopes up. i think we all had his hopes up. >> some are getting out. more than 3,000 people have been released since the first step act was signed but thousands more remain in prison unless the law changes again. senator dick durbin helped pass the first step act. >> to make this bill bipartisan we had to draw it in narrow terms. if it were too expansive we would have lost people on the right f. it were too restrictive we would have lost people on the left. the fact that anything was passed and signed i think is nothing short of a political miracle. >> does it not strike you as kind of wrong that there are people serving life in prison under laws that we have said are wrong? >> that's why we call it the first step act. it invites the next step. >> reporter: so when i give perry malone a call, what can i
5:50 am
tell him? >> i'd like to write to him. i want to see if there's a loophole or gap to be closed. >> perry did write. he is hopeful. >> i am hoping still that soon our leaders will make the right decision and do what is right, give us another chance. we deserve a second chance. >> for "today," dasha burns, jesup, georgia. >> you can see more in depth reporting in our justice for all series across all nbc platforms including a special town hall inside singsing. >> so many powerful pieces they've done over the course of the week. this will be the first ever televised town hall from inside a maximum security prison. you can watch that sunday night at 10, 9 central on msnbc. coming up, serena williams chasing an all-time record in the u.s. open finals. >> we'll be watching. we'll be right back.
