tv Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett CNN July 24, 2020 2:00am-2:59am PDT
the president's biggest rivals right now, the virus and the clock. 1,000 americans have died for a third day in a row. now the president in full retreat sacrificing what matters most to him, crowd size. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. this is "early start" on friday. i'm christine romans. >> i'm laura jarrett. friday, july 24th. happy friday. 5 a.m. here in new york. we begin this morning with the president in rare retreat. in a surprise move he scrapped the republican national convention celebrations set to take place in jacksonville,
florida, next month. the whole point of having his acceptance speech in florida instead of north carolina as originally planned was in the hopes of guaranteeing the packed convention he craves. the coronavirus has made that impossible. florida has just been devastated by covid this week. this week the sheriff in jacksonville went public that the event could not be held safely. this is the first major course correction we're seeing. they met with the president in the last 24 hours. the announcement came as more than 150 prominent medical experts, scientists signed a letter urging political leaders to shut the country down and start over to contain the pandemic. >> remember for months the president pushed for a return to normal. he wanted people back in church for easter. he mocked mask wearing as politically correct. even after endorsing masks, finally he will wear one when little league is at the white
house. he gave a speech where his own staff got the virus, but now he is in full retreat. in the past few days he acknowledged it will get worse than better. he admitted some schools will have to delay reopening. he promoted mask wearing canceling jacksonville was a move borne of necessity as he fights for his political life. kaitlyn collins is at the white house. >> reporter: this is a statement that caught a lot of people off guard. the president coming out of the briefing room yesterday announcing they are canceling the republican convention in jacksonville, florida, scheduled for a few weeks from now. the president said he doesn't think this is the right time to hold the convention. he was worried about the number of cases in florida. health officials were worried about this. >> there's nothing more important in our country than keeping our people safe. >> i felt it was wrong, steve, to have people going to what turned out to be a hot spot. >> reporter: it's really
remarkable, the president making this decision. we were told campaign aides went to him. canceling is an option but you could move forward with this in a more limited fashion if you wanted to. he ended up choosing which is just so notable given that in the last eight weeks the president went from having this convention in north carolina to pulling it. the governor had too strict health precautions. he believes the risks in florida are too high given the number of cases. as for what that convention is going to look like for the president, some delegates will go to north carolina to do the official duties of nominating him as a nominee. he will give the speech virtually, and the question is, where is he going to do that? he does not know that but they will figure it out soon. >> caitlyn, thank you. the president is shifting positions suddenly now not because he wants to but because the numbers tell him he has to. voters are turning on him as this pandemic ravages the
country. a new poll shows joe biden leading president trump by 13 points in florida. florida, as we mention. numbers from battleground states of michigan too. the u.s. just passed 4 million. covid is one of the top ten causes for death. the national map does show signs of progress. more than half of the country holding steady, but even as new infections began to slow, the deaths are coming faster. for three straight days the count has been over 1,000. texas set a record for deaths this week. polls show biden even with trump even in the heavily republican state. cases remain over 10,000 although there are signs that
may be leveling off. >> in arizona, hospitalizations have slowed. the decision on reopening schools will be left to education leaders. there's trouble in the gulf states this morning. four of them, georgia, louisiana, alabama and mississippi are struggling with hospital capacities. in wisconsin, people in their 20s make up 1/3 of the cases. wisconsin is one of nine states without a mask mandate and the only one with a democratic governor. new cdc guidelines strongly favor reopening in person classes this fall claiming children do not suffer much but the guidelines do recommend local officials delay schools opening. a way to delay it is testing. president trump calls this overrated. less testing means fewer people
will isolate because they don't know they have the virus. even if they have no symptoms, they could be spreading the disease unknowingly. >> i think it's sad we're seven months into the pandemic and we're still talking about the same things we were talking about in january and february. we don't know who's infected and not infected. we're not able to answer it to adequate satisfaction to get a handle on this. >> even as the president announced he was canceling the florida convention, he still pushed for kids to go back to school. a much needed stimulus plan is called in washington. a payroll tax cut is officially out. that's one of three areas where the white house caved to senate republica republicans. it's an extension of a critical life line.
cnn's phil mattingly has the latest. >> reporter: this was supposed to be the week negotiations kicked into gear. republicans and democrats trying to hammer everything out. urgent deadline on the 31st. that extra $600 has been crucial for millions of americans. instead senate republicans and the white house still haven't agreed amongst themselves for their own proposal. the expectation was that on thursday that proposal would be rolled out. we knew the basic tenants of that proposal. $105 billion for schools. another round of stimulus checks. another round of funds in the paycheck protection program. forgivable loans for small business. $25 billion for testing, money for the cdc, nih. all sorts of items laid out. republicans want to reduce the benefit. instead of the $600 flat rate they want to hit 75% of wages.
how to put that in place and into systems to allow states to make that happen has been an area of dispute. republicans expect to release the proposal. then and only then when it starts, very tight time line, obviously a lot of work to do. democrats have their own proposal. more than $3 trillion they laid out. they're sitting and waiting. they need somebody to negotiate with. at least for now and the entire week they have only been between the republican white house and senate. >> phil, thank you so much. another consequence of the coronavirus, isis attacks. they are exploiting security gaps. they estimate there are currently 10,000 isis fighters
in iraq and syria. they have seen a huge coronavirus surge with the number of cases topping 100,000. voting by mail is the only way to protect people from coronavirus during the election. polling places are often crowded and the pandemic may only get worse by the fall. they argue every american must have the option of voting by mail or absentee ballot. 1/3 of states only allow voting by mail. president trump is spreading bogus claims about fraud even though he has voted by mail himself and the trump appointed postmaster says they can slow it up. they're strong, they're tough, and we can solve these problems so fast, but as you know, we have to be invited in.
>> mr. president, i want to -- >> at some pint very to do something that's much stronger than being invited in. >> 75,000, that's about 3/4 of the total number of federal law enforcement officers. now the president has tried to make policing a campaign issue claiming cities with democratic mayors are violent and an appeal to the voters. right now cbs is headed in despite push back from the mayor there. meanwhile, the justice department's internal watchdog will probe the use of force by federal agents in washington and oregon where there have been violent protests. this friday morning breaking overnight, china retaliates after the u.s. orders the closure of a consulate in houston.

closure of the consulate in texas. david, secretary of state speaking out about the relationship between the u.s. and china. he said no more blind engagement really promoting a more assertive stance for the u.s. with its disagreements with china. >> reporter: no question, christine. the theme of that speech was the china threat. we knew there was going to be response. they said they were going to retaliate. it's the shutting down of the consulate in chengdu. we're hearing from state media that the staff has until monday morning local time to move out. the same time frame the u.s. gave to the chinese diplomatic staff in houston. about chengdu, this is part of szechuan province. more importantly, this borders
tibbet. this is a consulate where personnel were engaging in issues that were harmful to the chinese security. i want you to hear a little bit more from mike pompeo. if you think this is where it ends, hearing from him yesterday would suggest otherwise. >> president ragan said he distrusted russia. when it comes to the ccp, we must distrust. beijing's actions threaten our people and our prosperity. >> reporter: the reality is, christine, shutting down the chengd uconn sul late is not the worst case scenario for the u.s. diplomatically. you have shanghai and hong kong,
they still remain in play if the chinese need to use those going forward. as you heard from pompeo, the reality is this is likely to escalate. >> the backdrop is notable. it's the nixon library. nixon is the leader that opened up the relationships. the u.s. military is confirming an american fighter jet flew within 1,000 feet of an iranian fighter jet to, quote, inspect it. they showed injured and upset passengers. a central command spokesman said an f-15 inspected the flight to ensure the safety of polish personnel at a nearby base. >> dr. fauci takes to the field.

play ball. major league baseball finally returns to the field with all eyes on the defending champions, nationals. and their biggest fan. coy wire has more in this morning's bleacher report. hey, coy. >> all 5'7" of him. good morning, christine. there have been so many concerns about whether a season would, could, should even be played in this global pandemic. it was only fitting to have dr. anthony fauci leading the way throwing the first pitch and
giving america a much needed dose of normalcy. baseball is back. the super fan's nerves might have gotten to him. he practiced all week. throwing at his local elementary school with his wife. one person tweeting, this was the perfect pitch because dr. fauci didn't want anyone to catch anything. at least there was no one in the stadium to heckle him. the team had to raise the banner for the first ever title in an empty stadium. despite the pandemic, small crowd of nats fans gathering outside the stadium. giancarlo stanton helping to lead the yankees with a monster home run en route to a 4-1 win. it was called in the 6th for rain. listening to a prerecorded speech about social justice narrated by morgan freeman. then they took a knee.

finally, washington's nfl team has a new name. sort of. it will go by washington football team until a new nickname is chosen. earlier this month the team and owner daniel snider said they changed the nickname that had been considered an offensive slur following pressure from fans and sponsors. cleveland indians moving forward with a name change. they will consult with native american leaders to better understand the perspectives. cleveland starts off the baseball season later tonight against the royals in one of 13 games that will be played. it will be an action packed day, i'm happy to say, of baseball. >> i know you're happy, coy. quick programming note for you this weekend. kam kamall bell is in america.

i'm laura jarrett. >> nice to see you this morning on a friday. i'm christine romans. exactly 30 minutes past the hour. we begin this morning with the president in a rare retreat. in a surprise move, he scrapped the republican national convention events set to take place in jacksonville, florida, next month. the whole reason to have it in florida instead of the carolinas was to have a packed convention center. florida has been devastated by covid. this week the sheriff in jacksonville went public with concern that the event couldn't be held safely. >> there's nothing more important in our country than keeping our people safe. i just felt it was wrong, steve, to have people going to what turned out to be a hot spot. >> the president is the one who
pushed for a return to normal when will country was still in the thick of this virus. he wanted people back in church for easter sunday. he mocked wearing a mask as politically correct. he gave a speech and held a rally where his own staff and secret service agents got the virus but he's now in full retreat. in just the last few days the president acknowledged covid will get worse before it gets better, admitted some schools will have to remain closed. >> canceling jacksonville was a necessity. a new poll shows joe biden leading president trump. another single day of deaths. >> national map does show signs of progress for the time being. more than half of the country holding steady. even as new infections begin to slow, the deaths are coming
faster. three straight days the count has been over 1,000. the united states just surpassed 4 million. there are signs the numbers may be finally leveling off. in arizona, hospitalizations are slowing. the governor wants to keep it that way extending closures of gyms, bars, nightclubs. the decision to reopen schools will be left to educators. in wisconsin, people in their 20s are making up the mandate. new cdc guidelines on schools announced by the president on thursday strongly favor reopening in-person classes claiming children do not suffer much from coronavirus.
they do recommend they delay schools. the best way to monitor that is testing. president trump has called it overrated. less testing means fewer people will isolate because they don't knee they have the virus. more people spreading it means more people becoming seriously ill. >> we can't have a test result that takes seven days to come back and more people are spreading it. we don't know who's infected and don't know who's not infected. that's the most basic question we need to answer. >> even as the president announced he was canceling the florida convention, he still pushed for kids to go back to school. voting by mail is the only way to protect people from coronavirus on election day. that's the warning in a new letter from a group of health experts to congressional leaders
noting that polling places are often crowded and the pandemic may only worsen by this fall. they argue every american must have the option of voting by mail or absentee voting. right now only 1/3 of cases have been done. the trump appointed postmaster general has been recommending cost cutting moves that could result in ballot delays. the surge in virus has stalled the beginning of the jobs recovery. another 1.4 million americans filed for unemployment benefits. that brings the total to 52.6 million since mid march. that number just incomprehensible. this is the first weekly increase in the past 16 weeks. unwelcome but hardly expected. at the same time, initial loans
from the paycheck protection program are starting to run out. businesses supposed to rehire by june 30th for those to be forgiven. continued job rehiring. that was among millions of claims where americans will be losing $600 a week extra. with the month winding down, more evictions are looming. city and states that have provided the relief say it's dried up. 23 million renters are under a threat. about to run out. unemployed americans are facing another big problem. many are about to lose their health insurance. phil mattingly has more.
>> i'm always sounding optimistic, smiling. it will all be okay. >> reporter: despite a furlough, ashley managed to stay positive in the first few months of the pandemic. >> unemployment and everything, that's what made it a little bit easier to be like, okay, i can stay at home and be okay. >> reporter: but the pittsburgh restaurant group where she worked just days ago decided they had to make cuts. >> little bit of uncertainty. downwards spiral. >> reporter: now she has had job losses laying help. i i'm losing health care coverage at the tame time. >> nearly 160 million americans or about half the u.s.
population received health insurance through their employer in 2018. now as many as 26.8 million people could become uninsured according to the job losses according to the kaz ser family foundation. while the group estimates nearly 20 million would qualify for obamacare health care or subsidies, 5 million people faced with paying their own way all as a crucial $600 federal unemployment benefit is about to expire on july 31st. >> that was my saving grace. it really was. >> as pamplin faces purchasing it on her own, it was a start morali morality. lawmakers are discussing an
extension. it could have jarring repercussions. >> i don't know that i could afford it. that's something something. i was in a position where i felt a little bit comfortable. >> she had a job, health insurance. she closed on her new home. . everything i worked so hard to get and realized how hard it would be to get it back again. >> phil mattingly. i feel for so many restaurant workers. yelp did a study of closed restaurants. 60% of closed restaurants will never reopen again. $600 a week. it took government assistance for a lot of different workers and fields to have a livable wage. that money will disappear. >> the checks are going to stop today and yet there's no plan in place about what's supposed to
happen. they plan to punt it to next week. that's the big question, christine. >> we'll be right back. aging dis you can't always stop for a fingerstick. with the freestyle libre 14 day system, a continuous glucose monitor, you don't have to. with a painless, one-second scan you can check your glucose with a smart phone or reader so you can stay in the moment. no matter where you are or what you're doing. ask your doctor for a prescription for the freestyle libre 14 day system. you can do it without fingersticks. learn more at freestylelibre.us. with spray mopping to lock away debris and absorb wet messes, all in one disposable pad. just vacuum, spray mop, and toss.

new measures in the u.k. to contain the spread of coronavirus and claims by health officials in brazil appear to be out of touch with reality. cnn reporters are covering the pandemic around the world. >> reporter: i'm anna stewart from london. today it has become mandatory to wear face coverings in shops, airports, train stations. failure to do so will be a fine of 100 pounds. police will not be policing this and london's police said they will not be on facemask patrol. they will only intervene as a
matter of last resort. 9 out of 10 britts do support the rule but only 3 out of 10 currently wear facemasks. i'm shasta darlington in sao palo. brazil reported another big spike in covid-19 cases on thursday. almost 60,000 new infections and more than 1300 additional deaths. this a day after the interim health minister declared the virus seemed under control with what he called a collapse of the health system. while it seems to have been contained, there is a total number of cases nearing 2.3 million. i'm warren lieberman in jerusalem. prime minister benjamin netanyahu had protests outside of his residence. we've seen the demonstrations
growing in frequency and size following a pattern. hundreds if not thousands will gather outside the prime minister's residence. for the first few hours they will be peaceful and calm. at the end of the protests it will fall apart. more protests for the weekend. >> reporter: i'm david mckenzie in johannesburg. south africa has surged. that's the highest globally. they have more than half of the cases in south africa. they're taking the decision to close public schools for the next month at least for most students. they don't want classrooms to become a site of transmission. he announced they're going to crack down on corruption. there are several acts of
corruption in public and private sector. the department of homeland security used, quote, inaccurate statements when trying to ban new yorkers from global entry and other programs allowing others to speed through airport administration. the trump administration said they should be ban from using trusting travel ler guidelines. new york was not an outlier with the law. several other states had also limited access to that dmv information. so the rare admission from federal officials came in a court filing after thinining agencies. michael cohen will be released from jail today. the president's personal lawyer was sent to jail to block the
release of its book. an historic rescue of two children from a raging apartment fire in france. this video captures the moment when two brothers, ages 3 and 10, are caught by a crowd of people below. look at this. the little brother is dropped from the building first. then the older brother jumps and is also caught by the crowd. remarkably neither boy suffered injuries. >> wow. we're at that stage of the pandemic. first it was toilet paper, now it's pennies. if you can spare change the u.s. minute wants everything paid for in change. the mint is stepping up production. it's on track to produce 1.6 billion coins per month for the remainder of the year. welcome news for new moms. the american academy of

disney's schedule for the next cycle. they ever' ready to go. they are dialing with the pandemic. amc theaters is pushing back its locations mid to late august as states reimpose lockdowns. hershey is preparing for a less sweet halloween. expecting fewer trick or treaters, it's going to make less halloween themed candies. halloween usually contributes 10%. they will have home candy bowls. last week we told you about a michigan officer who went
beyond the call of duty. now they have reunited. here's cnn's ryan young. >> reporter: the officer from the sterling heights police department of michigan got a heart stopping call of a baby in distress. >> he's blinking. >> i was about a mile away from the house. i was right around the corner when the call came out and the only information i got from our dispatch was there's an infant not breathing and everyone is screaming in the background. >> calm down. calm down. calm down. let me see the baby. >> dash cam video picks up the next seconds filled with fear. >> hold on. >> i was checking the baby's mouth to see if i could see anything. didn't see anything. next thing after that is try and do some back blows to dislodge whatever might be deeper down in the baby's airway. three back blows and the third one i heard a faint cry. even before the ambulance
could arrive the baby was breathing on her own. >> he's crying. he's crying. >> it was a sigh of relief. i think i actually -- before i spoke into my radio i took a deep breath and put out over the air that the baby is crying, which it brings joy to everyone but that was a giant sigh of relief. >> what was going on and anyone who has a child, any mother on the planet that watches that video, any family, you can just feel the pain, the confusion, the worry. it's all there in the moment, those two or three minutes. it's very powerful. >> he couldn't be more proud of his young officer. >> i've been a police officer for 25 years. the last couple of months have been brutal, not just me but every cop in the united states. what a lot of people don't see is what we do every single day.
they do great police lives. police officers from around the world have reached out to say good job. he got the seal of approval from his hero and the man who made him want to be a police officer, his dad who also served as a police officer for 20 years. >> he said, usually it's the dad that is the hero to the son. you're my hero today. it hits home. it really does. it pulls on the heart strings. i'm a human just like everyone else in this world. >> brian young, cnn, chicago. >> does amazing work there. we're told the baby's family has given him an early invite to her first birthday. >> as a parent, you can't imagine how terrified you are. so calm. >> quick. >> calm and by the book.
