wesome. so come ask, shop, discover at your xfinity store today. champions again. can the u.s. women's national team spark action on equal pay for equal work after a dominating world cup? iran escalating once again, breaking its commitment to the nuclear deal. how much uranium will tehran enrich and how will the west respond? i'm sorry for any of the pain or misconception it may have caused anybody. joe biden apologizes for comments about working with segregationists but he's mounting a vigorous defense on
his record of working with race. this is "early start," i'm jessica dean in for christine romans. >> good morning for all of you, i'm dave briggs. 4 a.m. in new york, 12:30 p.m. in tehran. the u.s. women's soccer team rewriting the record books sparking a movement with their stunning dominant performance in france. >> that's it, u.s. wins their fourth world cup! >> team u.s.a. never trailed in the tournament, never, capturing its second straight world cup title with a dominating 2-0 performance. plenty of fans were shouting u.s.a. but this chant is resonating across continents. >> u.s.a. u.s.a. u.s.a. >> many of the fans, female and
male, chanting equal pay, equal pay after the victory the president was asked if female athletes should get paid the same as male athletes. >> i would like to see that. i would also like to look at numbers because when you look at world cup soccer, that's one thing. you also have to look at soccer, professional soccer. you have to see who's taking in what. so i don't know what those numbers are. i would like to see that but, again, you have to look at the great stars of the men's soccer, the great stars of the women's soccer and you have to see year round how are they all drawing. >> worth noting here arks gigantic $370 million pay gap between the men's world cup prize money last year versus the women this year, but when it comes to revenue over the last three years, the women's team fairing slightly better than the men with the u.s. set to honor its returning heroes, what
effect will this team have off the sneeld we go now live to leone, france. we bring in amanda, davis. amanda, you have been busy for the last 24 hours. how are things settling in now that it's all over? >> reporter: oh, jessica, yeah, welcome here to leone the morning after the night before. if ever there was winning a match that means more than just winning the battle on the pitch, it was what we saw here on sunday. the u.s. women's team really creating history with that victory over the netherlands becoming champions for a record extending fourth time at a tournament that many players, current and former, are talking about as the best standard of women's soccer ever. the dutch did give them a test but who else was it going to be but meghan rapinoe, captain fantastic, the player who's made as many headlines off the pitch as on it.
the golden boot for the tournament's top scorer and what a moment as well for rose navalle. she scored the second. four years after sitting at home watching the victory in canada whilst eating pizza. the result was celebrated by fans across the u.s.a., but this tournament really has increased the visibility of the women's game as you were talking about. more identify dolls on it. a fact that hasn't been lost on the u.s. women as they fight for causes so much bigger than trophy. >> i think everyone is ready for this conversation to move to the next step. i think we're done with are we worth it? should we have equal pay? is it, you know -- is the markets the same? yeah. yeah. everyone's done with that. we put on as all players, every player at this world cup put on the most incredible show that
you could ever ask for. we can't do anything more. >> and it's no surprise that the body representing the u.s. women with their lawsuit used the moment minutes after the trophy celebration. they issue o shalssued a statem u.s. soccer. they said the sad equation remains all too clear, americans won't stand for it anymore. they generate more revenue, higher tv ratings but get paid less simply because they are women. we know the mediation process between the two sides is set to get underway. before that the world cup winners rightly enjoying their moment. returning home later on monday before a particular keticker ta. you will have the better view. >> we will. we cannot wait for that. on the prize money disparate. huge fan of this women's team.
clearly meghan rapinoe is bigger than anyone on the men's side. the men's world cup made $6 billion. this world cup is expected to make less than 200 million. 6 billion here, less than 200 million over here. how can you dole out equal money when the pie is so much greater? >> there's a lot of questions there. >> it's not as simple as tv ratings. it's not as simple as revenue in the four year cycle domestically. it's not that simple. >> you're making it very simple there. there's a lot to this argument. there's a lot of layers. they have a lot of arguments to make. >> they deserve a raise. >> they do. >> that we agree on. we will move on to iran now and how the u.s. will respond to iran exceeding the uranium enrichment it agreed to and the landmark nuclear deal. president trump gave a first indication last night.
>> iran better be careful because you enrich for one reason, and i won't tell you what that reason is but it's no good. they better be careful. >> iran's move comes more than a year after the president withdrew from the 2015 iran nuclear deal and reimposed tough economic sanctions. cnn's fred pleitgen just back from assignment in tehran. he joins us from moscow. good morning, fred. where are we headed? >> reporter: it is a significant move on the part of the irani s iranians. the iranians said they were going to produce more low enriched uranium. now they're increasing the quality and quantity. now the iranians haven't said how much but it's going to be 5% that they are enriching it to. it's a higher grade quality that they are using. if the iranians were going to
build a bomb, for instance, they would need uranium enriched to 90%. these are pretty far away from doing that. the big question is why are the iranians doing that. they say the fact is very simple they have the nuclear agreement that they say they have been abiding by in full. now they're breaching some of the provisions. they're doing that because they're not getting any of the benefits. obviously the sanctions on the part of the u.s. are getting stronger. the iranians are saying they want the europeans to come up with a mechanism to get around the sanctions. the europeans are saying that takes time. they're saying their patience is running out. they're also saying, dave, in the next 60 days they're going to the next stage where they are going to breach more provisions of the nuclear agreement. they say it's going to be an ongoing process. so it certainly seems as though the tensionness that region are only going to increase, dave. >> continuing to escalate there. fred pleitgen, thank you.
iran's uranium enrichment move comes at a pivotal movement. now tehran is demanding brittain release iranian oil tanker seized by royal marines off gibraltar. that's where cnn's nick robinson is standing by with the latest this morning. nick. >> reporter: jessica, i don't know if you can see it here. that's the super tanker, grace one full of oil. you see the british naval vessel, hms where it's sitting out here in the water. the hms echo is doing loops around the grace one super tanker. the iranians saying they're using political, economic and diplomatic -- political, legal, diplomatic means, everything at their disposal to get the vessel released. they say that it wasn't on its way to syria, which was the reason the british and the
gibraltar authorities impounded it in the first place. they said they believed it was on their way to syria and it was breaking e.u. sacks. right now they're essentially saying that brittain has acted as a proxy here for the united states, that the u.s. request, this is what the iranians are saying and the spanish foreign minister, acting foreign minister is saying as well, that the vessel was impounded by gibraltar and british authorities at the request of the united states. the iranians is saying there's no way this is going syria. they want their oil back. they're demanding it be released. they're saying a british vessel should be captured in the same way as the grace one here. so the tensions on this are quite high and it is a point of significant tension with brittain. the british ambassador has been pulled in twice in tehran. it is a point of tension where brittain, unlike the united states, still supports the nuclear deal along with the european partners.
brittain getting stronger and stronger supporting what the united states is saying backing it on the shooting down of the u.s. drone in the space of hormuz backing what the united states says iran was responsible for attacking those vessels in the strait of hormuz. >> nic robertson right in the middle of it all. something to keep an eye on for sure. thank you so much. remember this for a few weeks ago? >> are you going to apologize. >> apologize for what? >> that's former vice president joe biden after his statement about working with segregationists. he had a change of heart. we have more from the campaign trail. >> reporter: dave and jessica, joe biden spent the weekend in south carolina making his pitch for why he should be the democratic nominee but the former vice president also offered a rare apology.
he regrets his recent comments about working with segregationists years ago. take a listen to what he said on saturday. >> i chose to work within the system, to make it better, to get things done for the least among us. was i wrong to do that? i don't think so. now was i wrong a few weeks ago to somehow give the impression to people that i was praising those men who i successfully opposed time and again? yes, i was. i regret it. i'm supervisory for any of the pain it may have caused anybody. >> reporter: he made those comments three weeks ago and he came under fire from his democratic rivals, cory booker. kamala harris said she was hurt by the comments during the
debate. i asked biden why he waited nearly three weeks to listen to the apology. at that i can a listen to what he had to tell me. >> the first opportunity i had to do it in a fullsom way. that's why i chose it here in south carolina and chose an audience that would most likely have been offended by it. >> it's worth noting biden was in south carolina a few days after he made the comments. he spent the weekend defending his record. one area are he had scrutiny. they have said it led to an era of mass incarceration. biden told voters here that he takes responsibility for that bill, both for what went right with it and what went wrong. jessica and dave? >> thank you. services are getting back to normal in ridgecrest, california, after friday's earthquake.
it was the second most powerful quake in as many days. >> get under the table. >> oh, my god. >> oh, my god. >> that was a bad one. >> [ bleep ]. >> this is so -- >> oh, the front door came open. >> it's okay. it's okay. just hold on. hold on. oh, my god. this is bad, brian. >> ridgecrest authorities say all roads and con creed have been inspected following the 7.1 magnitude earthquake. the city's water facilities are operational and the transit system is resuming its normal schedule. new drone video shows the fault line and some damaged homes in nearby trono, california. the quake rattled area residents. one family even decided to sleep under a tree saying they felt it would be safer in case of another earthquake. >> we thought it was safer that way because another one is coming. if it was worse than that one, you didn't want to be in our house. >> it shook so bad that i had to escape by the window.
we decided we were going to stay here and spend the night because we were too wore tlad another one would come and actually damage us. >> there are still concerns with more earthquakes. geologists say a major earthquake along the san andreas fault is likely due. ahead, he's evaded serious charges. billionaire jeffrey epstein has evaded charges about minors. safe for skin with psoriasis, and eczema.
you can go first. audible reintroduced this whole world to me. so many great stories from amazing people. it makes me want to be better. to be able to connect with the people's stories that i'm listening to. that's inspiration. it's on during my commute, it's on all the time. doing the dishes. working out. while i'm in the car. at bed time. an audible listener is someone that wants to broaden their mind. people who are tired of listening to the radio, or music. to hear her speak those words. it was incredible. it was unbelievable. with audible originals, there's something for almost every taste in there. everything you ever wanted to hear. i signed up for getting a credit every month, and i started exploring books that i normally wouldn't read. our ability to empathize through these stories,

enrich? and how will the west respond? welcome back to "early start," everyone. on a monday, i'm dave briggs. >> i'm jessica dean. the u.s. soccer team rewriting the record books with a stunning performance in france. >> that's it. u.s. wins its fourth world cup! >> team u.s.a. never trailed in the tournament with a dominating 2-0 victory over the netherlands. there were plenty of fans shouting u.s.a. but this is the chant resonating across the continents. >> u.s.a. u. equal pay. equal pay. >> many of the fans there, male and female, were chanting equal
pay. president trump was asked if they should get paid the same. >> i would like to see that. you have to look at numbers. you look at world cup soccer, that's one thing. you also have to look at profess to see who's got what. i don't like to see what the numbers are. you have to look at the great stars of the men's soccer, great stars of the women's soccer. you have to see year round how are they all drawing. a gigantic $370 million pay gap from last year to this year. the woman's team fares slightly better with the u.s. honoring their returning players. let's get live to leone, france.
the men's mix exponentially more than the women's world cup. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. absolutely, dave. there are two very different issues here. ultimately though what they're trying to achieve is the same goal. the other is the difference between the prize money. the women's tournament has a much shorter history than the men's equivalent of a world cup. there's a difference of 30 million. here we are the morning after, the bap ners are coming down and you suspect the impact will leave a much longer lasting impression. if there ever was winning a match that means more than just meaning the battle on the pitch. it was what we saw last night.
the u.s. team creating history with that victory over the netherlands, becoming champions for a record extending fourth time at a tournament the players' current and former are talking about as the best standard of women's soccer ever. the dutch did give them a test. who was it going to be? meghan rapinoe. a goal that saw her claiming the golden boot for the tournament's top scorer. what a moment as well for rose labelle, a young player who scored the second four years after sitting at home watching the victory in canada whilst she was eating pizza. speaking of watching at home, this was the result. the world celebrated by fans across the u.s.a. this tournament has really increased the visibility of the
women's game to see more identify dolls on it than ever before. that is a fact that hasn't been lost on the u.s. women as they fight for the causes much bigger than trophies. >> i think everyone is ready for this conversation to move to the next step. i think we're done with are we worth it? should we have equal pay? is it, you know -- is the markets the same? yeah, yeah, everyone's done with that. we put on as all players, i'm saying, every player in this world cup put on the most incredible show. we can't do anymore. >> reporter: the battle for equal pay goes on. they're rightfully showing it. the successful u.s. well's team flying home.
in new york on wednesday. you guys i would think would have the best seats for it. >> looking forward to it. >> i will be done there. terrific job by a strong team. thank you. beings how will the u.s. agree to meeting them. >> iran better be careful. you enrich for one reason and i won't tell you what that reason is, but it's no good. they better be careful. >> iran's move comes more than a year after the president withdrew from the 20 1r5 nuclear deal and rye em posed tough sanction. can you see him with more on this, fred? >> yeah, actually a pretty significant move on the part of the iranians. they were going to keep the
enrichment levels and make more. now they're increasing the amount of the quantity. that's the low and enriched or it was 3.67%. at the same time to keep things into perspective a little bit, uranium of about 90. the iranians don't want a bomb in the first place. the big question is they say, look, we've been abiding by this and we have a civilian nuclear program. now the iranians are putting pressure on them to get around the european sanctions. they're working on a mechanism, it's already partially working. right now their patience is running out and they're saying in about 60 days down the line,
they are going to continue to reach more which is another escalatory step. they've already warned the europeans, in this case, not to take any actions that are going to increase their uranium enrichment levels. >> fred, thank you for that update. iran's enrichment comes at a dangerous inenvironment. now brittain wants seize the oil tankers released. >> reporter: what the iranian authorities believe is brittain and gibraltar are essentially asking for proxies. why do they believe that? well, the acting spanish foreign minister said the british and gibraltar authorities have interdicted this vessel and the
request of the united states. so that's one. the iranians are saying contrary to what they say, they believe it was on its way to a syrian oil refinery, that's why they impounded it. the iranians seem to believe that the ship was imponded because it's containing oil. they're calling it an act of piracy. even a british ship should be ceased in this same manner. at this point as you have the same tensions over the youth of the deal. we at least had a standoff about this vessel. just a couple of days ago the supreme court here gave the authorities here another 14
days. there's a small vessel going in front of the tanker. that's one of the patrol vessels. the trolling vessel making sure it doesn't beimean that. right now they think the united states is strong enough to do it. >> 10:41 a.m. in gibraltar. nic robertson, terrific reporting for us. a so-called gold mine for the fbi immigration authorities. the washington post reports million of them. nonpartisan government accountability that the fbi has searchable access to 641 million photos of people's faces. they claim federal investigators have used dmv databases for
unproven dna. the fbi says facial recognition technology is used to find leads and agents are supposed to be there. amash was the only congressional public to argue that the president has engaged in impe h impeachable coop duct before announcing he was leaving the party last week. >> from a plan -- if she believes there's impeachable conduct in there, she should say so. when she says oh, i think we need to have the strongest case when she goes forward. what she's telling america is she doesn't think there's a strong case. if she doesn't think that, she shouldn't open her mouth in the first plais.
>> amash tells cnn high level officials have thanked him privately for his stance on impeaching the president. >> people sending me text messages, people asking for another one. i had fellow colleagues and republicans picking it up. so there are lots of republicans out there who are saying these things privately but they're not saying it publicly. i think that's a problem for our country. it's a problem for the republican party. >> michigan congressman not ruling out a thirteenth third party presidential run. could present a problem for 20 in to to. >> it's the end of an era. deutsch bank is unveiling a radical upgrading job.
