Trump pushes forward with executive action on economy despite legal questions

"CNN White House correspondent Boris Sanchez Boris President Trump is defending the executive orders issued on pandemic relief even as the White House is struggling to explain them they're having trouble landing out for the American people. Yeah that's right. Jim The president also spinning these executive actions claiming that they do more to help struggling Americans than they actually do the president dodging criticism even from within his own party that these actions are unconstitutional and also ignoring previous statements that he's made about executive actions. Tonight president trump sparring with his own party taking aim at critics of his new executive actions tweeting that Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse is a Republican in name only saying he has quote gone rogue. Again, this foolishness plays right into the hands of the radical left Dem's SAS tearing into trump's decision to circumvent stimulus negotiations in Congress calling the move unconstitutional slap comparing the actions to President Obama's signing of executive orders after lawmakers could not reach consensus orders that trump himself frequently criticized. The country was in based on executive orders right now Obama goes around signing executive orders. It's a basic disaster you can't do it in theory is opposed to you know the old fashioned way get everybody into a room and get something that people agree on trump was not in the room getting lawmakers together instead spending the weekend at his Golf Club in New Jersey as questions linger over whether the actions will survive legal challenges, members of the administration struggled to even explain them. Twelve, hundred dollars. Are you talking about in addition to unemployment that they're already getting nervous having. that. I. Beg. Your pardon the twelve hundred dollars will come from the payroll tax. It should be eight, Hundred Bucks I beg your pardon it should be eight hundred bucks for the unemployment eight, hundred or four hundred. No should before it should be eight hundred dollars. But White House Chief of Staff Morton Meadows appears more concerned with public comments from the administration's health experts. The Washington Post. Reporting Meadows has admonished Dr. Anthony Fauci for sounding out of sync with trump according to the post. Meadows has also excluded health experts for morning meetings with staff privately sharing skepticism about Dr and Dr Deborah burks questioning their expertise and regularly raising issues on which she thinks they've been

7-year-old boy is now the youngest COVID-19 victim in Georgia

"About the death of the youngest the youngest corona virus victim in Georgia only seven years old, and we'll also go to the scene of a huge motorcycle rally this weekend it's now getting underway without any rules for wearing masks or social distancing. Tonight new details on Georgia's youngest corona virus victim a seven year old boy without any underlying health conditions authorities say he died after attending a church where two elderly members tested positive died as well. Our National Correspondent Diane Gallagher of Atlanta for us this is certainly driving home concerns about the reopening schools where you are in Georgia? What's the latest on the? That's right wolf, and again, this is the youngest death unknown at this time for Cope, nineteen in the state of Georgia that seven year old boy according to the coroner was in the shower and he had a seizure they took him to the hospital where he later died. Now, the corner points out that seizures are not uncommon in children when they have very high fevers, his cause of death is listed as Covid nineteen. Again, we know that children can get covid and we see that children can die from covert, and that is a concern among parents and teachers and kids themselves here in Georgia because they. Did go back to class and for some of them, it was in person instruction this week several school districts across the state have already reported positive cases and had to send home dozens of children to quarantine because they came in close contact, and then there was this photo that went viral from North Holding. High School of a clash change a hallway with kids shoulder to shoulder many of them not wearing masks the young girl who took that photo Hannah waters was originally suspended for posting it. The school today were Sunday that suspension saying it wouldn't be on her disciplinary record but Hannah says, she doesn't regret it. I was concerned for the safety of everyone in that building and everyone in the county because. Precautions that the CDC incite guidelines at the CDC has been telling us for months now weren't being followed. And of course, the superintendent of that school district has said that while the photo looks bad, there is additional context wolf he says that look the kids aren't next to each other too long when they're in the hallway and that they are going to continue to take what they've learned from this week and try to implement it with additional standards and try and change things. One thing they're not going to be doing that school is issuing a mask mandate would the superintendent says, it's just too hard to enforce but again. that. They were trying to enforce a cell phone policy on the girl who posted on social media that picture earlier, but they say just not possible to do with masks in high school.

Trump Vows to Issue Executive Orders if Coronavirus Relief Talks Collapse

"Breaking news on the economic front the White House and Democrats say talks of the economic stimulus package they have hit a wall president trump is threatening to take executive action on his own. Let's get details on that from our chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta. Americans they are in desperate economic pain right now but stimulus talks seem to be going nowhere right now what's the latest? Well, that's right. Wolf with negotiations falling apart over Corona Virus Relief Bill White House officials say president trump is now expected to take some kind of executive action to provide financial support to Americans who are struggling to find work during this pandemic the executive orders are likely to include some kind of effort to provide enhanced unemployment benefits as well as some kind of. Action on suspending evictions from rental homes. There may be some other proposals in the mix, and in the meantime, we should point out the president just hinted at the path ahead in the last hour tweeting, we're going a different way that tweet coming from the president in just the last hour, and in the meantime administration officials are throwing cold water on the president's gold having corona virus vaccine ready by election day one senior administration official told me earlier today that timeline is highly unlikely. President trump's claim that a corona virus vaccine could be ready by election day is receiving an injection of reality as top administration health officials are saying, don't bet on it. Then November third. Oh I. Think I think in some cases. Yes. Possible before. But right around that time, a senior administration official told CNN that timeline is just not realistic saying it's quote metaphysically possible but highly unlikely and Corona Virus Taskforce Dr Anthony Fauci said. May Have to wait until November or December just to find out of a vaccine really works adding maybe we'll get an answer as early as October but I doubt it trying to put a finer prediction on the timetable right now I don't think any of us have enough information yet to know how that's going to shake out. The pandemic Bennett economy recovered somewhat in July with the unemployment rate falling to just above ten percent with one point eight million jobs added even with so many Americans still out of work congressional Democrats and White House officials have been at odds all week over Corona Virus Relief Bill with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, pointing the finger at top aides to the president. Now, that's been in the White House when the president's land that table and walked out that's really what Mr. Meadows. Did I on the table can't shoot staff Mark Meadows Jabbing right back I think for those that are suffering they. They should be asking the Democrats in the House and the Senate why why have you failed to meet the needs that we have so rightly expressed without a deal the White House is signaling Mr Trump will take executive action that legal drafting is complete. We've had this intense discussions about this. In the last several days, I don't WanNa make predictions. Democrats are also keeping an eye on election day accusing the administration of making changes to the nation's postal system that could slow down mayland balloting in a letter, the Postal Service Inspector General, a group of Democratic senators wrote the changes appear to pose a potential threat to mail in ballots and the twenty twenty general election President Likes Mail in voting in Florida but not another states like Nevada Florida's got a great Republican governor and it had a great Republican. Got Run to scientists Rick Scott, the president is seizing on comments made by Joe Biden, you seem to say African Americans are less diverse and their political views Latino voters unlike the African American community notable exceptions. The Latino community is incredibly diverse community. With, incredibly different attitudes about different things Biden try to clean that up tweeting in no way. Did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith not by identity not on issues not at all Mr Trump, tweeted biden is no longer worthy of the black vote I don't know what's going on with them, but it was very insulting. The president's attack on Biden are tricky for Mr Trump, who has a long track record of racially offensive behavior including sharing this video, featuring a supporter shouting white power. Now the US intelligence community issued a startling statement on election security today as the US closing in on the fall campaign. In that statement intelligence officials warn Russia is trying to damage from where Vice President Joe Biden. His chances to win the white. House the statement also from the intelligence community says, she prefers that president trump fail in his bid for a second term. These warnings from intelligence officials come at a critical time for American voters who were largely unaware that. The Russians were interfering with the election for years ago this time the voters know all too. Well, what could

Miami-Dade County among Florida locations closing COVID-19 test sites because of tropical weather

"Bad news out of Florida for a third straight day. Florida has broken its own record for the number of corona virus deaths in a single day. Let's go to CNN's randy case joining us from West Palm Beach Randy. You're one of the testing sites that are not actually being closed down due due to an incoming storm that may hit Florida right now and the next day or so what's the latest? Right there watching this tropical storm Wolf that is brewing out there. So Florida has decided to close all state run testing sites throughout the state. I'm at one of them here in Palm Beach County in the county they are actually closing all eight state run testing sites. The one where we are at has served about thirty thousand people It's open five days a week they also do antibodies testing here, but earlier in the day. We were here and they were dismantling it. They were taking apart the tents and the polls and some of the cones that's because those would not be able to withstand those tropical storm force winds. But this is one of the hardest hit counties in the state. So certainly, some concern about closing these sites even further south of here in Miami Dade, they're closing thirteen sites in Miami Dade. County, that's the hardest county they still. Have A positivity rate there of about eighteen percent. So some concern still there and in Broward county another hard hit county here they are closing twelve site. So in all in these three hardest hit southern counties in southern Florida, they are closing thirty three state run testing

He did when Nancy Pelosi says she wants to see the president United States in prison is that at all realistic You know, I think it could be realistic. No one is above the law, and that includes President Trump. If it determines that we lead to impeachment, or if he ends up in jail, So be it. I almost said that he should be in jail.

CDC sets out new guidelines for reopening US schools

"The school calendar is not the end encounter. A new front in the back to school debate, every school district has to make these decisions. These are complex decisions. The CD's out with long-awaited guidelines making the case, schools should reopen in some cases arguing children suffer in a remote learning environment there really are have been substantial public health, negative consequences for children, not being at school and stressing, they appear to be at lower risk for serious complications. Complications from covid nineteen and are less likely to spread the virus than adults with the science on. That still isn't settled. What I can't tell you for sure. Despite the South Korea study is whether children under ten in the United. States don't spread the virus is the same as children over ten I, think that is still an open question that needs to be studied in the United States. One reason there's so much concern particularly in hot spots like Florida Miami Dade County. You're talking about three hundred fifty thousand students plus another forty thousand teachers, so you're putting tremendous amount of people back into the economy in a way that could could end up being super spreader event. Exactly. What doctors and overwhelmed hospitals? There are worried about. Is Way too dangerous here right now to have face to face schools and we're drowning. We're absolutely drowning here. This E also advising local authorities to take into account, the level of virus transmission in the community before resuming in person classes. When you look at the hot spots, I think most of us all right now. Looking where the percents positivity rate within the community is greater than five percent, many of the nation school districts pressure to make a decision before the CDC guidance came down some deciding to hold online only classes in the fall others postponing the start of the school year. Despite, positivity rate above twelve percent. Arizona's Governor Doug Ducey asking schools to open on time this fall while leaving the decision to local leaders

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan Discusses Handling The Coronavirus Pandemic

"Joining us now the governor of Maryland Larry Hogan. He has a new book coming out later. This it's called there. You see the cover still standing surviving cancer riots, global pandemic and the toxic politics that divide America governor. Thanks so much for joining. Joining us. We're definitely going to have you back later this month. Assuming you'll want to come back when your book comes out, I WanNa, talk about that. You've got some really compelling stories, but let's start with this very grim milestone right now. More than three million Americans three million Americans all across the United States have now been infected with this virus, and the death toll could reach actually to under thousand, plus by November I according to the latest projections. Has. The United States failed in its pandemic response. We'll look. There's no question that we've turned a corner in the past couple of weeks. In the wrong direction we're seeing these states all across the country spiking and it's of great concern. I can tell you to to most of the folks across the country. Our state luckily so far has been doing pretty well and trending in a better direction, but by no means are we ready to do any victory lapse I can tell you that we're watching a very. We're being very cautious where reminding people to continue to remain vigilant because This virus is not going away anytime soon and we can't take it lightly. Life and death issues at stake. The vice president said the country's hotspots have enough personal protective equipment at hospital capacity right now. You're the head of the National Governor's Association. Is that what you're hearing from? These governors do they need more support, or are they happy and satisfied? Look I didn't hear what the vice president said. I can tell you that The federal government is doing a much better job than we were at the beginning of this crisis as far as working together with the state's ramping up some of these things like personal protective equipment, but I don't know we don't know how bad the surge is going to get, and whether or not, we are going to have enough of PPA where we're going to have enough ventilators. Where whether we're going to be able to have the ICU beds so look I i. think it's to underestimate this virus as a big mistake, but I think we've made great strides to improve. Improve a lot better shape on those things than we were back in March or April, but with a big comeback. We could still be in trouble again when it comes to getting kids back in school, and all of us want to see the kids back in school. We Wanna see them. Studying and learning. The president is now actually threatening to cut off funding. If schools don't reopen, do governor see this as an empty threat? Is there a real fear? Let's say some of the counties in Maryland Montgomery County outside of Washington DC. If they decided simply too dangerous I should. The folks here feel that the federal support for schools is going to dry up. We'll look I i. really can't say what was in the president's mind when he made that statement, but I don't believe it was a serious statement and I don't think the governors are taking it seriously. Look had a great call with the governor's the vice-president just the other day two days ago with Dr Robert Redfield where he talked about the CDC guideline guidance for States we're. We're talking about. How do we safely reopen schools while being making sure that we're protecting kids and teachers and so I, the the threats today and the and the talk about not following the CDC guidelines. It just came out of nowhere. It makes no sense. It wasn't part of our discussion. Dr Redfield gave a nice update and vice-president did and all the governors were. Appreciative of the guidance from the CDC and we're all looking at these issues in our states to make sure we all want to get kids back to school, but we wanna make sure we do it in a safe way. And I thought it was good at the CDC. Put out some some some safety guidelines. And apparently the president of like those guidelines, and he's complaining about it now. The CDC is going to have to revisit those guidelines us all very very disturbing

Brazil's biggest cities start reopening as COVID-19 surges

"Brazil ranked second to the United States for the most coronavirus cases and deaths of any country in the world yet it's pushing ahead with reopening businesses and its largest cities series Bill Weir's and some hollow for us. right now, so set the scene for US Bill. What are you seeing? Well a lot of the businesses were only allowed to be open for about six hours today, usually in the middle of the day source, seeing folks sort of trickle in and out of the shops here as they get closer to closing time, there's a mall across the street that was open today for the first time as people get to sit down restaurants at forty percent capacity, or so, but in the shopping district in the center of town today I saw people elbow to elbow, and not all the masks were at full mast, so to speak at a lot of that has to do with the way Brazil as the United States, the pandemic has become really political. Down here, thanks to the man in charge President Bolsonaro of from the beginning. Has dismissed covid nineteen as little flu that Brazilians are strong enough to handle He pooh-poohed calls from the Health Ministry to social distance and to quarantine fact. He fired his health minister. A lot of people were worried that president trump would fire Dr Chee well most scenario did that replacement quit after a month? And now the man in charge of the pandemic response is a loyal army general who has no health policy experience at all, but what's interesting at the same time is Brazil is now the site of two major vaccine sort of phase three. Three trials, thousands of Brazilians will volunteer to get very promising medicines, but wolf those probably even in the best-case won't be ready for public sumptious until this time next year.

Miami Reverses Course on Reopening

"With coronavirus cases surging in Florida right now. The Mayor of Miami Dade County is expected to issue an emergency order that will roll back at least some business reopenings, and perhaps including in person dining restaurants mayor Carlos Jimenez is joining us right now. Mayor, thank you so much for joining us Can you give us a preview of what you're expected to do in the in the coming hours? We're we're going to be closing some of the businesses that opened sometime around the beginning of June because we saw a huge spike, and in young cases in the young people becoming positive are on June fourteenth, so we went back a couple of weeks. And around May thirty-first, we issued orders to allow of the gyms, etc, those kind of facilities to open up also took away some restrictions on the operating hours of restaurants at the same time, and around the same time. Obviously, we had some protests here, and so all of those things put together kind of lead us to believe that the young people especially when he took curtail the social activities, the people because that's. That's where our problem started with people, and then transmitting it to their parents and grandparents to where now we've had a doubling of people in in the hospital with Covid Nineteen, we have doubling people in ICU. See You and a doubling of people in ventilators, and my concern is that we're going to reach the capacity or medical capacity here in Miami Dade, and that's something I do not want to get to. It's so so worrisome. In fact, we did some checking mayor in the past two weeks. As you know better than anyone hospitalizations in your county of increased by eight percent, the number of ICU beds, being used increased by one hundred and fourteen percent, so I I'm wondering why you waited until after the busy holiday weekend to roll back some of these reopenings. Well. One of the first thing I did I mean before the holiday weekend winced a curfew again. That's that's in order to curtail some of this social activity that we've been seeing. Around town, a young people getting together either using restaurants as quasi bars after hours or actually getting together and homes. And maybe banquet halls, and all that so banquet halls all those things that are going to be closed before the holiday season also I holly how you know the the last holiday weekend closed all the beaches because we felt that it was going to be a surge there, and we also close a lot of casinos and casinos movie theaters bowling alleys. All things ever closed before the weekend. Weekend this is the next step going into into trying to tamp down the rate of infection here minded and people don't necessarily realize or appreciate that over the weekend Florida we reported more cases in the single day than New York did at its peak back in April. I guess I'm wondering why. The governor disentis continues to say this is simply the result of doing more testing is wrong. No look, the more testing you do, the more people you're going to see is gonna come up positive because we did a medical study here in Miami Dade two months ago that we knew over two hundred thousand people had already tested positive if we took the positive rate. That that we put that out. Two hundred thousand people had tested positive for the antibody, so the official number that you see especially Miami Dade. We have about forty thousand way undercounted his body by factor of ten. I expect the same thing in the state of Florida. So the more testing you do, the more people you're gonNA. Find the habit our problem isn't. Isn't so much the number as it is the percentage, and so we were testing at about an eight percent positive rate of the numbers of the tests that were being conducted. Now we're over twenty percent. That's the real issue, and then when you correlate that with the increase in the hospitalizations, then you know you have an uptick and and the infection rate. Rate here in Miami Dade, county. We need to bring that down below ten percent, so we have to rollback some of the things that we did our problem, too, is that a lot of people didn't take personal responsibility? They didn't wear their masks. They didn't wear their mass outdoors when there were within six feet, and so those rules have been in place since. Since mid April and unfortunately a lot of our young people are not complying with those rules or getting together there partying and they're not wearing the masks, and and this in this contagion really took off with that young, that young demographic, eighteen, thirty, four, thirty, five to forty five age group. They just shot up and now Zina's also that and I. It's so hard to thousands of lives will be saved if people just wear the mass wash their hands engage in social, distancing lives will be saved. These are simple things to do, but so many people are simply not doing in an awful to see them out of the street behaving the way they are a mayor. A good luck to everyone in Miami. Dade appreciate it very much joining us.

"White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins joining us that Galen President and his team seemed to have an alternative reality when it comes to the pandemic, hundreds of Americans are continuing to die every single day. Well won't that certainly the president has had to be really interested in the response to the pandemic as as nick noted, we are seeing these outbreaks new cases, and what's happening across the United States? Some states are scaling back their reopenings, but wolf on several fronts today the white. House is having to defend comments. The president made in recent days starting with claim about corona virus cases in the United States here at the White House on Saturday night to a tweet this morning where he seemed to criticize NASCAR for banning the confederate flag from its events. with, infections surging across the country White House officials spent the day insisting president trump isn't downplaying the severity of the coronavirus pandemic I. don't even know that this is a generalization when you start to look at the stats and look at all the numbers that we have the amount of testing that we have the vast majority of people are safe from this ready downplaying the severity of the virus, the chief of staff and press secretary argued instead that president trump was referencing the fatality rate when he wrongly made this claim. Saturday night that ninety nine percent of corona virus cases are totally harmless. Now we have tested almost forty million people. By so doing, we showcases. Ninety nine percent of which. Are totally harmless. Results. That no other country can show because no other country is testing that we have the FDA. Commissioner refused to back up or correct what the president said. Despite being pressed multiple times is the president wrong? So I'm not going to get into WHO's right and WHO's wrong. What I'm going to say Dan is what I've said before which is that it's a serious problem that we have.

"Coronavirus Task Force members. They just tell their first briefing in two months. tell us more. That's right wolf while president trump was laying low at the White House. The coronavirus task force return to the spotlight, holding a news conference, not at the White House, but over the Department of Health and Human Services Mr. Trump was not there, so we didn't take questions instead. Vice President Mike Pence seemed to tiptoe around the issues of wearing masks and holding rallies Dr Anthony Fauci was much more direct telling Americans they aren't doing enough to control the virus. With coded nine hundred and sweeping across the south and out West. The administration's Corona Virus Task Force finally reemerged with Vice President Mike Pence appear to be looking at the soaring number of cases through rose colored glasses. All fifty states and territories across this country are are opening up safely and responsibly. We slowed the spread. We flat in the curve. We saved lives. But that's not quite true. As a surprising spike in Corona virus cases is spreading from Florida Southern California, forcing some states to pause there reopenings Taskforce Dr Anthony found. She tried to add a dose of reality gently putting his finger on some of the nation's missteps, everything from maybe opening a little bit too early on some to opening at the right time, but not actually following the steps in an orderly fashion to actually trying to follow the steps in an orderly fashion, but the citizen tree did not feel that they wanted to do that. For a number of reasons bounce, you try to make an appeal to individual Americans do more. You have an individual responsibility to yourself. But you have a societal responsibility. It was the first task force news conference in nearly two months with a change of scenery as officials address the pandemic at the Department of Health and Human Services instead of at the white. House and then I see the disinfectant. We're not out in a minute we're. The briefings came to a screeching halt back in April when the president suggested that Americans, inject themselves with disinfectants to kill the virus. As for the wisdom of holding proud campaign events like the president's rally in Tulsa last weekend, pens tried to dance around the question. We still want to give people the freedom to participate in the political process. Campaign is not part of the problem even in a health crisis. The American people don't forfeit our constitutional rights. Pence also declined to give a full throated endorsement for masks despite wearing one public the day before the first principle is that people ought to listen to their state and local authorities, former vice president Joe. Biden said he would try to mandate masks. I would insist that everybody on public. Be Wearing that mask and he wanted. Wanted to reopen and would have to make sure that they walked into a business that had mass. The administration is considering a new approach to halting communities spread with something called pool testing that would have health officials testing batches of samples from people in groups. The batches positive individuals in that group need to be tested. If a pool is negative, that means the whole group is likely safe. If we didn't do, testing would have. have no cases even as the president continues to downplay testing, he is struggling to lay out what he would do if he won reelection. Never really answering the question on Fox, what your top priority items for a second term well one of the things that will be really great, you know the word experiences still good I always say talent is more important than experience I've always said that the Wall Street Journal argued Mr Trump's. Trump's still has no second term message beyond his own grievances may soon need a new nickname for sleepy Joe. Biden, how does president sound while Mr Trump attacked Biden's occasional gifts, he had one of his own appearing to say the former vice president would win the race, but I mean the man can't speak and he's going to be your president because some people don't love me and you know all I'm doing doing my job. Now, even the middle of a pandemic Andrew Recession. The trump administration is asking the Supreme Court to Overturn Obamacare that's despite the fact that nearly a half million Americans who lost their health insurance during the pandemic were able to obtain coverage through obamacare and the president has not yet explained what he would do. If obamacare is overturned

In Washington DC, White House adds fencing around perimeter

"The trump administration is building. What increasingly looks like a fortress? The White House are early this morning. Crews began extending metal fencing a steel wall. If you will from Pennsylvania, avenue virtually all the way down to Constitution Avenue across the street from the National Mall that is on, and there's some of that fencing right right there that is on top of the fencing. That's already surrounding the White House in addition to that. There remains a militarized police presence in Lafayette. Park around the White House giving this area. The Look of something out of an authoritarian country not the people's House as you describe it in on top of all of that White House officials say quote. All options are on the table for dealing with these protesters in the meantime Attorney General William. Bar is defending the use of force to clear out Lafayette's. Where before the President Church photo op on Monday authorities had hoped to establish a secure perimeter earlier in the day, supporting the Attorney General, but ran out of time. Here's more of what he had to say. It was our hope to be able to do that. relatively quickly before Many demonstrators appeared that day. Unfortunately because of the difficulty in getting appropriate forces units, hinder place. by the time they were able to. Move or perimeter up to ice returned a number. A large number of protesters had assembled I did not know that. That he was going to do that until later in the day after our plans were well underway to to move the perimeter, so there was no correlation between our our tactical plan of moving the perimeter out by one block and the president's going over to the church. The president asked members of his cabinet to go over there with them. And that claim from the attorney general now as for that stinging statement from former Defense Secretary James Mattis accusing the president of dividing instead of uniting the US former White House chief of staff. John Kelly is defending the retired general, telling The Washington, post earlier today that Mattis is quote, honorable man. He also disputed the president's claim that Mr Trump fired mattis Kelly says mattis resigned the president. Quote has clearly forgotten how it actually happened or is confused quote in response to that statement for US Alaska Republican Senator Lisa. Murkowski told reporters earlier today. She agrees with former defense secretary and added. She is struggling with whether she will support the president. Come this

"wolf blitzer" Discussed on Coronavirus: Fact vs Fiction

"Our medical correspondent Dr Sanjay Gupta's at a hospital east of Baghdad. Sanjay tell us what's going on where you are. We're invite an operating room that's unusual in. That's from two thousand three when I was embedded with a group of medics during the Iraq war and still relatively new to CNN the anchor introducing me is probably a familiar voice. Many of my friend and colleague Wolf Blitzer. How are you holding up Sanjay? It's been difficult yet. These convoy rides will be you know much about Bacon. Be a very challenging bank wolf and I have both been at CNN for decades which is kind of surreal to say. We've been at the front lines of some of history's most life changing moments nine eleven. Hurricane Katrina the Bala crisis but this pandemic has had no precedent in our lifetime as host of CNN's. The Situation Room Wolf says this has been one of the most intense experiences of his career. He joins me today to talk about the challenges of covering tragedies the political is ation of facts and how he keeps going during this never ending new cycle. I'm Dr Sanjay Gupta. Cnn's chief medical correspondent and this is corona virus fact versus fiction. Doing Hi Sandra. My got my clorox disinfecting wipes cleaned off his microphone. This little table here. and you would be very proud wolf. Thank you I've really been looking forward to this. Let me start off by asking. How long have we have? We known each other well. I've been with CNN for thirty years. And and I think you've been with CNN West for about twenty years. Is that right? Such young two thousand and one I started so nineteen years coming up on twenty years. That's amazing I I remember. Of course the first major story you and I covered Was in February march of two thousand three just before the war with Iraq and we were both in Kuwait You and me we're recovering. Anchoring my show from Kuwait City from a hotel balcony and all of a sudden the war started and the first Scuds came in and a few of them landed about a mile or so behind where I was reporting from And we see this huge plume of smoke. Go Up And the wind was blowing towards us and I said well let. Let's wait and see where the smoke goes And the next thing I knew is Dr Sanjay Gupta our chief. Medical correspondent was in a vehicle. You were heading to that high end mall where the Scuds landed and you were wearing your gas mask and you were getting ready to report the news right. Yeah that's exactly right. I I wanted to go over there and And see at the time it made total sense. Yes I will go exactly where that big plume of. Smoke is where that missile landed in the middle of a war where there's concerns about bio weapons. It made perfect sense. In retrospect I was thinking what am I doing? Let let me let me ask you wolf about this this particular time now covering this pandemic You've covered so many stories again These wars Oklahoma City nine eleven hurricane Katrina other outbreaks. How how is this? Been different than those well. This has been At least from my personal perspective. The most deadly You know as we speak more than ninety thousand Americans have been have died and hundreds of thousands have been you know had to suffer through corona virus and and so many more around the world and these are people. These are wonderful people. These are mothers and fathers sons and daughters brothers and sisters They're younger. They're middle aged. They're older they're wonderful people. Many of them were looking For the prime of their lives spending time with their families enjoying life The economy was good and all of a sudden. It's a disaster. We've got millions and millions of people who are unemployed applying for unemployment benefits Many of them can't even apply. What's so heartbreaking to see these long food lines people waiting to just get food to put on the table to feed their kids And themselves and who would have thought this was going to happen and even something as simple as wearing a face mask you go out and you see all. These people wearing face bests You see people all over the place. Who would have thought that was going to be happening here. So this has been so so intense so riveting so scary so crazy in many respects. It's just an awful awful situation and I and I would say it's it's certainly you know the the most intense period two months that we've been doing this in all the years of my journalism that this is the most intense while. I mean that's saying something given your career and yet you do a story like this and it's it's difficult nowadays seemingly wolf to disentangle anything from from politics and the more subjective nature of the story. The opinion part of story people weighing in From a Political Lens. Do you sense that as well is is? Is it truly impossible to disentangle just about any new story from politics nowadays? Well look. There's the political story. There's a political angle to what's going on and the country is deeply divided as you know I I will say this. Sanjay the article you wrote for CNN DOT COM On Your personal thoughts and I have it right here in front of me You know that it for the for the for a moment. Think of the United States as a human body at that and people haven't read that article they should go back and look it up And the last words you wrote and I have it right here in front of me. It's they were so powerful because I truly agree and I truly believe what you said is true. You said the country and the world are facing a serious illness but it is treatable. It is fixable. Let's do this together. You're absolutely right. We're we're going through HAL right now. This is an awful awful situation and it's going to get worse as these numbers get worse and and hopefully there won't be a second wave that comes in the fall or anything like that but I totally agree it is treatable. It is fixable. Let's do this together when you think about your your your tone. I mean do you think about your your tone? When you're delivering news stories Wolf. A lot of it nowadays has been you know frightening news to give. How do you balance being hopeful for an audience and being honest I do think about my tone And I try to. You know to be as objective as I possibly can be but sometimes you know the the story is so painful you you're gonna see that you know on my face you'll hear it in my tone you'll hear my words And you know I've been trying over these days To end the situation room with some images and pictures of a real people who unfortunately passed away from the corona virus and we tell those stories who these people are because it's one thing to say ninety thousand people have died. It's another thing to say. Look at this individual. Look at this woman. Look at this man. Look at this teacher this nurse look at this This a first responder And you put the face on these people. And it's sad. It's it's heartbreaking because you think of their families and so often their families they can't even say goodbye in a hospital or they see they can't even sometimes go to a funeral To say goodbye to their father mother or whatever and You know you gotTa have some emotion when you just feel that it's it's so powerful so so awful Science reporting in some ways I feel wolf is a luxury in that we can always rely on data and science and evidence facts to bolster up our reporting There's not a lot of opinion science reporting although sometimes you do have to offer up some thoughts on things but for you. In an era where alternative facts have become a term that people become familiar with. How do you think that that is affected the reporting on this pandemic the idea that the truth and the science? That's just another avenue of information. Here's here's another avenue. You could pay attention to the most important thing we can do. And you're part of our fact checking team Sanjay's went when we hear government. People including the president makes statements do a news conference and say all sorts of things I want to come out and say well. Let's let's check what we just heard? And we'll have you We'll have John King have Daniel. Dale our chief fact. Checker will have Gloria Borger Dana Bash But we'll have doctors And in addition to you who come on and say well what he said just not true. What he said is true And I think that's a real service that CNN does provide that. We're not just listening and reporting but Ross fact checking and making sure that the viewers get an honest understanding of what's going on not just propaganda from time to time. I think it's so important. Everything gets sort of polarized and and sometimes it gets minimized inappropriately. So I really do appreciate the sort of work that you do wolf. How about you? I mean even your site in the pandemic Wolf. I think you are known to the iron man at At CNN and in the media business. In general I mean you work hard weekend. Shows Weekday shows What what was the work life balance like for you well right now. I I love working and I've been working during this during this current pandemic seven days a week. I woke up this morning. You know I got a little routine. I got on a treadmill for an hour and I watched the news on television as I'm getting a good little sweat Excited because I know that you know in the situation room gets on the air. Five o'clock I'm going to be ready to report the news as fairly and as responsibly as accurately I as I possibly can and the viewers will be grateful. And I'll be grateful that it's not as if if I took a day or offer You know or a weekend off. I could go to. A restaurant can't do that. It's not as if I could go watch my Washington nationals. Play baseball game. I can't do that. It's not as if I can you know. Go see my family down in Miami. 'cause I'm not going to get on a plane right now and I'm not going to be able to do that and whenever I used to complain to my dad about how hard I was working he would always say listens on. There are harder ways to make a living what you do so. Just go ahead and enjoy your job. That's my attitude you know. It's my attitude to despite the long days and frantic research. I've always tried to follow wolves lead. I WanNa think wolf again. Not only for his hard work but also for being a constant source of inspiration for me and everyone else at the network. If you have questions please record voice memo and email them to ask. Sanjay at CNN dot com might include them in our next podcast. We'll be back tomorrow. Thanks for listening..
