a ppen with this business. we're really gonna take over the world with potatoes. i really believe it. ec the head of the fbi compares the attack to 9/11 facebook suspends the former president for two more years could he return just in time for
12:01 am
another run at the white house aliens or something else the new report from the government on those mysterious unexplained or flying object citings. new concerns from the cdc over unvaccinated teenagers. new data on high earners fleeing high tax states. plus a new weapon in the fight against a wisdom by cell phone apocalypse >> announcer: live from cnbc, the facts, the truth, the news with shepard smith good evening the american economy is healing slowly employers across the country added 559,000 jobs in may. about twice the number added last month but still below what the economists had been expecting. and the economy is still about 7.6 million jobs short of where it was before the pandemic in february of last year a steep hole that's proving difficult to climb out of. >> this is progress, historic progress, progress that's pulling our economy out of the worst crisis it's been in 100
12:02 am
years. as we continue this recovery we're going to hit some bumps along the way. of course that will happen we can't reboot the world's largest economy like flipping on a light switch. >> as the president also noted, this report captured data up until only may 12th. since then the cdc and many states dropped indoor mask rules for people fully vaccinated pan. and 21 million more adults are fully vaccinated drawing many back to offices, restaurants and travel that was reflected in the report too. the biggest economic employment gains in the leisure and hospitality industry it added 292,000 jobs mostly at restaurants and bars cnbc senior economic correspondent steve liesman on our story tonight. leisure and hospitality workers and some bumps in play what does it mean for the labor shortage >> you know, employers are finding, shep, sticker shock
12:03 am
when they see what it costs to bring people back to work. they've been accustomed to the supply of labor. wages up $1.29 over the past year high unemployment benefits keeping some on the sidelines. others people have difficulty finding child care support jobs may not be in the right place. workers may not have the right skills and there is another factor here many millions during the pandemic they just dropped out of the labor force and took the opportunity to retire, maybe became stay at home moms or dads or just out looking for work -- stopped looking for work some may never come back or only at a higher wage. >> states are cutting jobless benefits this month. do you have an idea how big a factor that could be for the june report? >> yeah, well it's going to be a massive experiment in the impact of the extended unemployment benefits 25 states ending them this
12:04 am
month. economists expect this to help bring millions become. they think most of the labor shortage problem will work out over time. most of that is when the extended benefits end, schools reopen and when the right workers get in the right place with the right skills. but shep, i got to say some of this hangs around a while if you are millions not coming back to the workforce. >> steve liesman, good weekend thank you. another industry hiring in big numbers, cryptocurrency. hundreds of jobs are open and some with no crypto experience necessary. that story coming up just a little later in this news hour the former president trump could be coming back to one of the biggest social media platforms in the world just in time for 2024. facebook announcing the former president will remain suspended from their platform for two years. but the company did open the door for his potential return after that if certain conditions are met. for months now the former
12:05 am
president trump has been exiled from twitter, facebook and other social media platform after his supporters stormed the capitol and launched a deadly insurrection today the former president responded to the suspension repeating the same dangerous lie that got him suspended in the first place, that the election was stolen he also lied about the number of votes he received. in the written statement, the former president writes facebook shouldn't be allowed to get away with this sort of censoring, silencing and ultimately we will win and our country can't take this abuse any more. former president trump has not ruled out another run for the white house. not publicly in fact, he is speaking at a north carolina gop convention tomorrow under the stipulations of his suspension from facebook, the former president could potentially return to that platform in january of 2023. cnbc's valerie castro is here. there are some major caveats for the former president here. >> shep, everything will be closely scrutinized by facebook once that suspension lifts and permanent removal is not out
12:06 am
of the question. right off the bat facebook says it will look to experts, though not specifying who they would be, to assess whether the risk to public safety has receded the company says it will look at violence, restrictions on peaceful assembly and any other markers of civil unrest if these things are determined to affecting public safety, the suspension could be extended facebook released this table showing the penalties for public figures who break the rules during times of civil unrest and ongoing violence, suspensions range from one month to two years. and in some cases permanent removal. even though the former president has expressed his unhappiness with the continued ban calling it censorship, first amendment experts say that's a stretch. >> the idea that donald trump or any other political figure is silenced because they aren't facebook is a little specious. what you really have at best is
12:07 am
a contract dispute they have the terms of service which appear to allow them to make a judgment. but even -- not even offering a reason. >> facebook announced changes to the way it treats politicians. until now even if they violated the rules the posts would remain because facebook considered them news worth by default but that's no longer the case they'll be subject to harmful speech guidelines like every other user facebook says there may be cases where posting are exempt and will make it publicly known. >> valerie castro thank you enjoy the weekend. >> to casey newton editor of platformer and cnbc contributor. casey, facebook's original decision on former president trump was criticized by some as arbitrary. give us an idea, is this one clearer what -- what do you make of this one? >> it is a little bit clearer because it's at least written down when facebook first gave trump an indefinite suspension there was actually no such thing as an indefinite suspension anywhere in fischer's rule book
12:08 am
that's why its oversight board came in and said if you want to inference the rule you have to write it down. there is a lot to say about the ruling but it's now somewhere in fischer's community guidelines. >> does the suspension address the issue? or did facebook really kick the can down the road? >> i have to agree with you there. this is a bit of a punt, right i think there were certainly a lot of folks who wanted facebook to remove trump from the platform indefinitely. in fact nick klegg leading policy and communications said as much when they referred the case to the oversight board. but now they said already, give it two years see how things change then. and then a decision. so, yes it feels like they are punting again on the issue. >> casey read some research on this today this is a number 90% of republicans say they believe social media siting censer political viewpoints from pew research what does this decision do to that perception? >> i'm sure it is only going to
12:09 am
heighten it. you know, at the same time, platforms are allowed under the first amendment to have rules. they're allowed to enforce behavior, you know, just in the same way a shopping mall can kick you out if you're in there causing trouble with the megaphone. facebook can kick you out if you're inciting violence that isn't how republican see it and this only angers them more. >> casey thank you. a development tonight in the criminal investigation into the trump organization a new york grand jury is expected to hear testimony now from one of the company's senior executives that's according to the reporting of "the new york times. the paper reports the manhattan district attorney has subpoenaed jeffrey mcconney to testify. he is the trump organizations controller prosecutors have been conducting a wide ranging investigation into the organization's business dealings, looking into the potential of tax fraud no charges filed against the former president at all, and he has not been accused of any
12:10 am

cox media group knocked at least two of the local tv stations, one in pittsburgh and the other in orlando off the air or not knocked off the air but hit them and hard. employees tell nbc news managers instructed the stations to shut down company computers and phones fbi director christopher wray says the challenge our nation is facing right now from ransomware attacks is so immense it's comparable to the terror attacks of 9/11. he followed "the wall street journal" the fbi's investigating about a hundred different types of ransomware, and that most of them trace back to hackers in russia as we reported last night u.s. officials tell nbc news the biden administration is planning to have intelligence agencies spy on cybercriminal gangs and potentially launch counterattacks against hackers inside russia. cnbc senior washington correspondent eamon javers now eamon you spoke to a top justice department official about the relentless attacks what did you learn >> that's right, shep, lisa monaco has been leading the charge at the department of
12:13 am
justice. she launched a 120 cyberreview created a new ransomware task force and issued new guidance to the doj, and the fbi mandating immediate reporting to headquarters of any ransomware cases that pop up. one of the key issues in this is whether or not the companies hit by ransomware are paying off the criminal gangs to get access back to their own computers. so i asked monaco whether jbs the giant meat processing company hacked this week paid off the gangsters or not here is what she said. >> i don't know the answer to that. >> do you think that the government should know whether the companies are paying ransoms or not. >> yes, i think we need to know. >> i also asked her what happens when the attacks on the nation's food and fuel supplies are not ransomware only. what if the acre wants to lock up the systems and not sell back the key. is the united states prepared for that >> the threat to critical infrastructure, the threat to
12:14 am
companies across all sectors is very real. the most important thing we can be doing is not allowing ourselves to be victimized in the first place. >> you know, i was struck by the fact that she didn't say just, yes, the united states is prepared now we also heard directly from russian leader vladimir putin today. he denied russia is behind the recent spate of attacks despite the u.s. government recording that it it is. putin called the allegations absurd and said he explained his view is the united states is trying to prevent russia's development. he said everything the u.s. does starts from that position. now white house officials say one of the things that they're trying to do is build an international coalition against ransomware the biden administration hopes to put pressure on russians through the global process and we'll see how well or not well that's playing out soon at the upcoming biden/putin summit in geneva. >> eamon back to the ransomware issue, why wouldn't a company tell the government whether they paid or not?
12:15 am
>> well, that's the big question you saw lisa monaco say she don't know whether or not jbs paid the ransom to the criminals. we did see them get up and running quickly this week. the question is whether they paid or didn't pay you can imagine this is enormously sensitive for a company. because they are sending cash, dollars, changed in cryptocurrency, collect directly to criminal gang there are all sorts of branding pr and legal headaches associated with that any company may simply not want the government to know what their interactions have been with criminal gangs, particularly if they are sending cash. >> eamon, thanks speaking of crypto, the biggest crypto conference in all the world is happening right now in miami. it's called bitcoin 2021 and it's expected to draw up to 50,000 people. some big names headlining the event. the twitter ceo jack dorsey, the pro skater tony hawk
12:16 am
the boxer floyd may weather and texas congressman ron paul at the conference in miami here is nbc's shaquille brewster. >> you see the crowd behind me, shep this is one of the largest crowds the building has seen since the pandemic this is a soldout event. more than 12,000 tickets sold this time around, up from 2,000 back in 2019 and this just shows the excitement around cryptocurrency as more people invest into the virtual monetary device. when i talk to people they are saying they are coming to learn about cryptocurrency and get in on some of the success in growth you've seen. you're hearing that from the mayor of miami who is one who convinced organizers to move the event from los angeles to here in miami listen to what he told me. >> whether we like it or not we're going in into a scary technological world that's becoming more technological. and cities will survive and thrive based on the editions they make to prepare residents for that world. >> he later told me that he is

trying to make miami the crypto capital of the world he says he is taking solid action to make that happen paying certain employees in bitcoin if they want, and also taking taxes, accepting tax payments in bitcoin. shep. >> shaquille, thank you. >> one of crypto's biggest promoters appears to have fallen out of love with bitcoin elon musk tweeted a breakup meme with hashtag bitcoin and a broken heart emoji on that, bitcoin fell by more than 4%. other digitals coins followed. ethereum down 2 per. musk's favorite, dogecoin fell about a percent. but despite the volatility, the crypto industry is growing and that means job opportunities. according to indeed.com, the share of crypto currency's job severance increased by nearly 200% the last year and the share of available crypto jobs increased by nearly 30%. cnbc's kate rogers following this what kind of jobs are we talking about here
12:18 am
>> hey, shep when you hear crypto jobs you may think they're tech and finance positions. but in talking to companies hiring in this tight labor market, it really appears there is room for everyone 2021 most in demand crypto jobs are software architects, developers and engineers and security engineers as well google search terms showed those looking for crypto jobs are at all-time high and growing. the top locations for jobs for with indeed.com are the corridor with listing in san francisco, los angeles, austin, phoenix and atlanta. crypto companies like krackin, the bitcoin in exchange platform say there are opportunities companywide looking to bring on about 1,000 workers from engineering to client services, the work is remote and the pay is the same whether you live in california or iowa >> this we do find is actually highly attractive for people that are in lower cost areas of

12:34 am
the ledger suggests it could have come out of a lab continuing to expand we have the circumstantial evidence of illnesses reported of people working in the wuhan laboratory, the lab that has been suggested could be involved in doing research with this particular virus that occurred in november at the very time we now believe the virus first made its arrival into the setting in wuhan. we have the fact the chinese into the setting in wuhan. we have the fact the chinese government withheld key information that could be exculpatory that could point in the direction of a zoonotic source and the people working in the lab and the early strains, as well as information about some of the infections they have not made patient samples available from early infections which could help discern where it originated from the fact they withheld the key details that could be exculpatory is a piece of information. also we have done an exhaustive
12:35 am
search for the animal source and haven't found it there's been more evidence, circumstantial evidence albeit, that suggests this could have come out of a lab. i think we need to have open minds about the potential. the one thing we have looked at early on, the reason why a lot of virologists early on didn't feel it could have been a lab source and more likely a zoonotic source is looking at the strain itself all of the again etic strain could be found in nature. it's plausible it came from nature that's probably the more likely scenario but over time, the fact that we have discounted some of the theories around the zoonotic source, for example the wet market, the food market in wuhan being the original source of this and the fact that chinese government withheld key evidence and the fact we now know there have been illnesses around the institute at the time the virus first made the arrival in wuhan, i think all of that is suggestive and requires further investigation. >> and they won't tell us what the illnesses were
12:36 am
you would think if somebody had flu or some kind of cold, they'd release the details so we'd all shut up about it they haven't done it and that stinks. dr. gottlieb, enjoy the weekend. thank you. and nationwide surge in crime is happening and it's hitting hard in new york city. as that city starts to reopen. the nypd reports a 22% spike in overall crime in the month of may cared to may of last year. of course last may we were in lockdown but the biggest drivers of this, shootings, up 73%. robberies almost 50% grand larcenies and felony assaults also climbing and the surge of hate crimes is also leaving communities on edge we've been reporting on the surge in anti-asian hate crimes, jumping more than 300% in the big city in may compared to the same time last year. crimes involving sexual orientation up 188%. anti-black crimes up 80% and anti-semitic hate crimes up 37%. the reward for information about the freeway shooting that killed
