favoring potential challenges as well mentioned Senator Collins and no asked about the claim by the vice president Mike Pence with the health care bill strengthens and secures Medicaid Collins said this I would respectfully disagree with the vice president’s analysis miss bill would impose fundamental sweeping changes in the Medicaid program and those include very deep cuts that would infect some of the most vulnerable people in our society including disabled children poor seniors reaction from state governors not much warmer an attempt closed-door sessions Saturday governor’s confronted the Vice President and top administration health officials over the cost of the health bill that they’d imposed on their state now the administration team made a frantic bid at the National Governors Association meeting this weekend to win over or at least to win the silence of skeptical Republican governors Republican and Democratic governors said that effort left major questions unanswered yeah they’re being encouraged to innovate to get black grams to have federal you know the federal expansion of Medicaid benefits of limited and that would somehow spur innovation that is not an argument that any of those lawmakers took to heart meantime the Congressional Budget Office will not release its latest analysis of the GOP health bill today as was expected it’s not clear when it will do so it’s also unclear whether a new analysis will improve the bills popularity with the public take a look at this new poll from the Washington Post and ABC News showing Americans refer Obama care to the Republican proposal by a two-to-one margin that same poll berry news that might rattle another president but that’s drawing a shrug from the current White House document president Trump reaching a new low in approval ratings just 36 percent in the latest Washington post/abc News poll that down five points in the same poll at his 100-day mark in April president Trump responding with the tweet that apparently wants to have it both ways accepting and casting doubt on the same poll at the same time he says the ABC Washington Post poll even though almost 40% is not bad at this time was just about the most inaccurate poll around election time okay but first it’s actually the lowest approval rating at six-month mark of any president 70 years so not exactly not bad it is a record at this point a record low and second the final estimate from the Washington Post poll was 43% for Trump 47% for Clinton who posted forty eight point five percent on election night that’s well within the polls margin of error Secret Service rejecting a claim by president Trump’s lawyer that the agency would have prevented anything questionable from happening at that famous meeting now last June between Donald Trump jr. and a Russian lawyer here’s attorney Jay Sekulow on ABC’s this week claiming nothing happened at the meeting that included several Russians and top members of the Trump campaign well I wondered why the secret service that this was nefarious why’d the Secret Service allow these people in the president had Secret Service protection at that point that raised a question with me Donald Trump jr. himself said things should have been done differently having said that again none of that is violation of the law that’s more process problem being X well true the President had Secret Service protection the president did but after that interview the Secret Service said it had no responsibility to check out participants in the meeting because Don jr. was not under its protection at the time the president’s personal attorneys lawyer or comment rather also drew fire from some lawmakers including California Democratic congressman ted Lieu who tweeted this here Gemma the rock Jay Sekulow Secret Service’s job is not to deter violations of federal election campaign Act that’s the job of pot prosecutors Sekulow was also on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday where he reiterated that the president was not aware of the meeting and not engaged in it that assertion got a skeptical response from the top Democrat on the Senate Intel committee mark Warner I think if I had a meeting that involved Russian government efforts to try to help candidate Trump and hurt Clinton that I would remember that and frankly it’s a little bit unbelievable than neither the son or the son-in-law ever shared that information with their dad the candidate all this came after we learned it another person attended that meeting Russian American lobbyist Rinat akhmetov’s parked a Sunday tweet storm from the president who said the media is distorting democracy and he called he added rhetorically Hillary Clinton can he legally get two questions to the debate and delete 33,000 emails but my son is being

caliphate crumbling Islamic caliphate so far among those rounded up as sympathizers women who married into the terror group now they have not been charged with anything in what’s essentially a lawless area and authorities are not sure exactly what to do with them for now they’ve been jailed and segregated inside a refugee camp in Syria telling our Nick Paton Walsh the ISIS life isn’t what they thought it would be thank you yourself they saw the videos girls mothers some who married into Isis who knew what they were about but still came now jails in a refugee camp stuck in limbo with Isis

all this you might have wanted to double-check that seculars comment also drew fire from some lawmakers including California Democratic congressman ted Lieu who tweeted this now the dumb as a rock part I think that in mentioning that Mika Brzezinski tweeted the president out a while back here dumb as a rock Jay Sekulow Secret Service’s job is not to deter violations of federal election campaign Act that’s the job of prosecutors Sekulow was also on scene in State of the Union Sunday where he reiterated that the president was not aware of the meeting and not engaged in it that assertion got a

developments on who within that room we learned yet another person attended that meeting Russian American lobbyists or not I’ve mentioned now we’ve now learned there eight people were at that meeting that is a significant jump from what we’ve been told originally the ensuing furor sparks a Sunday tweet storm from the president who said the media is distorting democracy see and he added rhetorically Hillary Clinton can illegally get the questions to the debate and delete 33,000 emails that my son is being scorned by the fake news media the White House looking to get back on message and stay there by announcing a series of additional themed weeks spotlighting domestic issues the White House starting with made in America this week with a focus on manufacturing a White House spokesperson says products created in the 50 states will be showcased today with other events planned during the week American heroes week in American Dreams we come later details yet to be announced the White House has tried to highlight themes like infrastructure and workforce development in the past but those messages were largely overtaken by other news often generated by the President himself it’s worth noting though even though that this week’s theme is made in America many items in the president’s own clothing line and Natomas daughter Ivanka are made overseas in countries like Bangladesh China and Indonesia in fact human rights activists Arisa to the change in China while they were trying to audit factories where a she sub contracts to have her things made alright once again the stock market is at record highs but Wall Street’s optimism is not translated into economic growth the S&P 500 the Dow look at this record high closes on Friday even as turmoil in Washington stalls the Trump economic agenda here’s what’s driving stocks corporate profits corporate profits are keeping the Bulls running a number of big-name companies report this week including Netflix Wolman Zak American Express Microsoft and we’ll tell you expectations are high last season’s profit growth was the best in years investors are also banking on a Fed that’s more cautious about future rate hikes cautious because of low inflation and slow consumer spending consumer spending makes up the majority of economic growth in Americans seem to be you seem to be cutting back retail spending dropped in June for the second month in a row consumer confidence fell to the lowest since the election which may be a sign Americans are losing faith potentially in the president’s economic agenda or they haven’t seen anything quite yet a tan you know tangibly that has been a something he’s done that has led to economic growth the administration promises though that its policies like tax reform and spending cuts will spur a three percent growth a lot of experts in that’s optimistic they expect a slower growth rate of more like 1.8 percent days but the president tweeted over the weekend that you know when he was in Bedminster at the US Women’s Open in his club there that everyone there was very happy that the stock market was up 17 percent this is elections so that appears to be what people are telling him let’s says people running or the investor class maybe not necessarily the working class but we’ve pointed out many many times that for wages haven’t really risen very much there is really good job creation a continuation of what we’ve met what we have seen but for investors investors are making money because companies are making money that would make sense in Bedminster New Jersey all right an American researcher convicted of spying and now sentenced to ten years in prison in Iran Princeton University identifying the man as history grad student she knew a Wong the University saying he was arrested in Iran last summer while doing scholarly research in connection with his PhD dissertation semi-official Fars news agency saying wang was accused of gathering

specifics alright South Korea making a rare proposal from military talks with North Korea the move coming after weeks of heightened tensions amid a series of North Korean missile tests the most recent tests are successful intercontinental ballistic missile launch South Korea’s Defense Ministry proposing talks Friday on a North Korean side of a demilitarized zone the North has yet to respond on ahead once considered the other woman public support has grown for Camilla Duchess of Cornwall since her marriage to Prince Charles now speaking exclusively to CNN and will is taking on some critical topics on her birthday residents of Cornwall being exclusively to CNN to mark her 70th birthday Camilla parker-bowles now married to Prince Charles for a dozen years but rarely heard on camera opens up tests on some she’s important to her very cool Simmons royal correspondent max foster live in London with more on this exclusive interviews maanikya max good morning yeah it’s interesting she was the other woman in many people’s minds Camilla was the woman who stole Princess Diana’s husband away from her so a very contentious figure but over the last 12 years since Charles and Camilla were married I think there has been this program to really rehabilitate her brand really around the world and to bring her out and bring her in touch with the public more and more putting her in a position to one day become queen she will technically become queen whether or not she uses the title is another thing but I was given access to her for a day and this is hard this process really getting to know the future Queen and she spoke to me on camera she’s never done that before and she was speaking to me in a in a Center for victims of domestic violence a very serious subject but here’s a bit of what she said to me in person could it be powerful stories today what are you able to bring these sorts of conversations but I’m not sure what I’m able to claim and it’s what all these very brave ladies tell me it’s seeing this believing or hearing is believing I think like many other people in this country I didn’t know much about domestic abuse that I knew nothing at all read a bit about it and I think that I went to visit another charity to save lives where again I sat around listening to very very latest tell their stories and I think everybody there was moved to tears and and I thought as I came I ate I thought you know I just wished there was something I could do to help we can talk it was a taboo subject and I think we can talk about it is I and I can talk about it and bang the drum of its so can a lot of other people so but that’s what I trying to do to help got just a few charities few really focuses on on one of them is domestic violence and she’s really built some credibility there so it was something she cares about I have not heard her voice I mean it Romario me you see the pictures of her but really she’s not sort of the face of of the family by any stretch how did it come about this interview she’s rarely on camera well one of the things I’ve wanted to do with the royal family for a long time it’s just to give an insight really into Camilla’s character simply because when you meet her and it doesn’t come across on camera she’s very charismatic very charming very funny she’s by far the most popular royal with the royal press back because she comes up to us she speaks to us and she has a laugh and she does care about the media whereas some of the other members of the family are quite quickly around the media let’s put it like that so I wanted to give a sense of her and I think through the interview you get a sense of her and that’s really what it achieves if anything and as you say many people haven’t heard her and she’s not really confident about speaking in those situations either didn’t eat very often yeah she talked about two serious issues an act also it’s a great video where she’s eating chocolate on camera didn’t realize that was an uncomfortable moment but it was able to laugh it off so it’s nice to see that side of her as well max thanks too much she mention anything look I can’t imagine anyone would be be prickly around that not all warm and fuzzy guy all right Tesla founder Elon Musk says he knows the biggest threat to humanity and yeah as a plan that’s not seeing the money stream there you
