Trump doubles down on divisive messaging in speech to honor Independence Day

"President Trump had a message on our own Independence Day here in the US more from CBS's Tom Foti, a big part of President Trump's Fourth of July message was an echo of a theme. He previewed the night before at Mount Rushmore. Those that are lying about our history. Those who want us to be ashamed of who we are, are not interested in justice or in healing. Their goal is demolition off, which there was evidence not far away. Not too much later but pull down of a Christopher Columbus statue. In Baltimore and at least part of it dumped in the city's famed inner harbor.

Zandi predicts job numbers will be "meaningfully worse" in July amid COVID spikes

"The US added 4.8 million jobs in June, but that data was compiled before the Corona virus spikes that started mid month. Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's Analytics, joins us now from Philadelphia this morning. Good morning to you, Mark. Good morning, Margaret. You had already predicted this would be the shortest but arguably most severe recession in history. What did we learn from the data We got this week. Well, it was good about as good as you could expect. Almost five million jobs were created during a month. That's on top of 2.7 million in the month of May. So we've gotten about 1/3 of the jobs back that we lost in. In March and April. Unemployment declined properly measured. It's about 12% hard to imagine that's a good number, but it is a good number of compared to 20% which we got in April. That was the peak Here's the thing, Margaret the unfortunate thing, you know, Thie. Unexpected, better. Economic news is the result of the very rapid increase in business. Reopening is too fast, because now The virus is re intensifying and the pandemic is raging in a lot of key states across the country. They're pulling back, and that's not in the data yet. That's coming down the road, so I fear That the best economic news was in June. And as we looked at July and going forward, the job statistics were goingto look meaningfully meaningful. E worse. The pandemic is a real issue now. And these are thes states that air seeing these spikes are important to the U. S. Economy. Very large economies. Taxes California, Florida. How much do you expect to see consumers pull back They aren't there big. I mean, if you had a California, Texas, Florida, let's throw in Arizona. You're You know, you're not talking about over fist of the economy, probably closer to 1/3 of the economy right there. Andi. I do expect we're going to see pull backs by businesses in those states. And here's here's a saying it's not just businesses there directly impact is not just restaurants and retailers. In all businesses are going to be nervous about the uncertainty that this all creates. And so they're going to come even more cautious and hiring back workers. And then of course, you've got consumers When I you know we were. We already had one hand on the bunker. I can't imagine that many of us are going to go right back into the bunker is a result of all this and wait this out so This is very disconcerting. And if Dr Fauci is right and we're headed towards 100,000 per day, I think the prospects of going back into recession are pretty high. What we know, certainly at the White House and on Capitol Hill, they're going to have to take a look at what kind of emergency aid will need to be provided. In light of some of this changing information that we're receiving, in your view. Do you think Congress needs to provide some kind of help to American families? 80 million Americans have Children under the age of 18. They can't necessarily send them back to school in the summer. Maybe not in the fall. Childcare is also in question. How important is it to address that specific challenge? Critical. It's absolutely critical. You know if Congress and administration don't get it together in the next few weeks before Congress goes away on its August recess, I fear we're going back into recession because Thie economy needs a lot of help. And you, you point out there's a lot of even though unemployment back down if you add up folks that are unemployed people who have gotten ours cut there so working, but they got their hours. Cut. Then consider those folks that are still working. Haven't gotten your hours cut got their pay cut. You're talking about 1/3 of all American workers. They're still struggling here. And if they don't get some additional help on atyou know the the unemployment insurance expansion that was part of the original help to the economy is going away in 2 to 3 weeks. So if Congress administration don't figure out how to provide more help to these folks, they're going absolutely no choice but to stop paying bills, cut spending and the economy is really gonna struggle. Here's the other thing. State. Local governments are hemorrhaging red ink, right, So every every state government across the country doesn't matter whether you're a Republican state of a democratic state. You're hemorrhaging reading and they're slashing payrolls and these are Middle income jobs, their teachers their fire. They're policed their emergency responders. These were the kinds of folks we need working at any time, but particularly in a pandemic, So it's just absolutely critical, critical that Congress doesn't take the wrong message from the June jobs number. And says, Okay, Mission accomplished. We're OK here for far from it. They need to provide a lot more help in very soon. But what about the specific child care issue? How does how does Congress Well, they're your right. They have to provide support through Tio support for child care on the other side of that during the pandemic once schools during the summer and once when school if schools don't reopen. So there has to be additional support their you know, there's different ways of providing this for direct aid to people who are unemployed, or, you know, through the through unemployment. Suren CE were through the tax code. There's a child tax credit that could be used to make it refundable two different household so that they can get cash back if you know if they have child care needs. But you know all those things need to be part of any additional support that Congress comes forward with. And hopefully again. They comport with that quickly

Epstein's alleged accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell set to be arraigned next week

"Maxwell. epsteins closest associates. And helped him exploit girls. who were as young as fourteen years old? Mental played a critical role in helping Epstein to identify the friend and groom minor victims for abuse. In some cases, Maxwell participated in the abuse herself. Okay if you thought the Jeffrey Epstein case was over after his apparent suicide in his jail cell last year. Thank again you'll remember that Epstein was the disgraced financier and convicted sex offender who socializes powerful men like Prince Andrew Bill Clinton and Donald Trump on Thursday, his longtime associate d'alene Maxwell, was arrested and charged for allegedly helping Epstein recruit groom, and sexually abused girls as young as fourteen years old. She has denied any wrongdoing. Here's more of what the US attorney from the southern. District of New York had to say about it. Max will and Epstein had a method. Typically. They would befriend these young girls by asking them questions. About their lives, pretending to be taking an interest in them. They would take them to the movies. And treat them to shopping trips. Maxwell would encourage these young girls to accept offers from Epstein to pay for their travel and their education. Making these young victims feel indebted to Jeffrey Epstein. Developing a rapport with Victims Maxwell then try to normalize sexual abuse with a minor victim. Joining me now. Our our sisters in Law Maya Wiley Professor at the new school and NBC legal analysts Barbara Maclead, former US attorney and MSNBC contributor and Joyce vans, also a former US attorney, and also MSNBC contributor so ladies first I love the all female panel, but I will say starting out I used to be a field producer for America's most wanted, and my beat was covering missing and exploited children. On, this and ask you if you could. How important is the role of the person WHO's The enabler? The person who is recruiting these young girls and my experience, that person was integral to abuse cases when I was a journalist covering these types of cases so. What what say you on that? Yeah. You're absolutely right, tiffany. This is this person and the person who plays the role that. Just Lane Maxwell accused of playing is a Predator is just as culpable as. Jeffrey Epstein or anyone else who sexually assaults anybody? The reason it's so critical to have a person play the role maxwell is accused of is because it's manipulation gain. We have three hundred thousand young people in this country estimated to be sex trafficked domestically, and what that means is finding young kids met male and female. We shouldn't pretend that it's just girls here. In this country who are vulnerable, who need help who need the support of a system hasn't provided it. These are young women who were disadvantaged in many different ways, and what the role that Maxwell played was to play on their need. Get them to trust and being a woman who does that is particularly important, because if you're a vulnerable young woman, you're more likely to let your guard down and believe that the person who is offering you help means it so her role. Is Pivotal in enabling essentially the victimization of a lot of young women and girls, and it happens all over the country. One of the things that so important about this arrest is that predators who are powerful too often go unpunished. So something I found interesting reporting coming out of the Tampa. Bay Times highlighted that this case is actually being handled by the Office of Public Corruption Unit so I. WanNa ask you, Barbara. What does that say about the scope of this? Nation is that. Link to anyone in the current administration. Is it possible that Labor Secretary Alexander Costa's entangled in this break it down for those of us who don't necessarily know how the inner workings of the Southern District. It's a really interesting detail. Tiffany of the press release that was put out by this other district of New, York. This is also true when the case was originally just against Jeffrey Epstein that the public corruption unit is involved, that's a unit that has specialized training and expertise to deal with public officials who get charged there a lot of nuanced issues that arise when public officials are involved and so it says to me that this case. Case at least touches in some way public officials. Now as you said we know that Alex Kosta had some involvement with this. We don't know that he is a subject or a target of the investigation, but his involvement in negotiating sweetheart plea deal a number of years ago. With Jeffrey Epstein could be a reason. We also know that Prince. Andrew has been implicated as recently as last month Jeffrey Berman. The former US attorney recently ousted. Ousted was demanding an opportunity to talk with him and Prince Andrew was a dodging that request to be interviewed. It may be that he is only a witness and not a subject or a target, but this no doubt touches some people who have positions of power, and that could explain why the involvement of public corruption unit or could be others as yet unknown I think four names I be looking at immediately or not public. Public officials, but enablers as Maya, was talking about. If you look at the plea non-prosecution agreement that was negotiated with the Southern District of Florida back in two thousand eight. You'll see the names of four individuals that Jeffrey Epstein specifically wanted to protect. Those are very likely to be people who were enablers recruiters I'd want to get to the bottom of their role. and I think that this case is not done being charged yet. I want to turn the Joyce. Barbara brought up Berman and his abrupt firing. Do you see any connection here with what the dismissal of Berman and the FCC case? So, Tiffany I think it's very hard to know. We know that. The Attorney General Poll Day late Friday night effort to usher Berman out the door, unceremoniously in the southern district of New York and that didn't work became public when Berman refused to go along and instead of having the Attorney General's political appointee in place. We ended up with a woman who was. was already in the office, a career employee, a career prosecutor who will hopefully be playing things straight up so it's difficult to make any sort of direct political line there what we do know is that this is the classic type of an indictment that looks like prosecutors aren't done. It looks like they're headed in further direction, and that's something that there could perhaps. Perhaps be powerful. People who are interested in shutting off when I say it's a classic indictment. What I mean is this indictment comes in six counts, and there's a I can't. That's a conspiracy count and the maximum penalty. There is five years, but there are also substantive counts and conspiracy counts of enticement and transportation of minors, and those counts actually range from ten. Ten years to lifetime sentences, and so as MS Maxwell, is forced to confront the potential charges. She's looking out. Does she want to go to prison for the rest of her life, or is she willing to cooperate and become a witness and look at lesser charges? Perhaps five year sentence that I think will give some powerful people some reason to sleep poorly. All right. Am I GONNA? Go back to you. What do you think that gain maxwell will do you anticipate that she? Said they say. It's hard to know. We're looking at a case as both Barbara Jo of a choice have said where there are powerful people connected to Maxwell and Epstein. There's the mysterious death of Jeff Jeffrey Epstein that has still raised questions in people's mind. And I think the question becomes. Where do you feel more vulnerable? Do you feel more vulnerable from law enforcement, or do you feel more vulnerable other ways we don't really know. We're not going to know, but the one thing we do know and I think is important to remember is this is an over for the victims? This is only the beginning of what will be a very deeply difficult. Possibly re traumatizing process that they have really bravely stood up and faced down despite the fact that I don't think there's any illusion for them. They will have to protect themselves from further victimization in the way, in which the defense will be mounted for Maxwell. So if there's any decency at all left in this woman, she will certainly spare them.
