exception of will hurd. and the vast majority of republican lawmakers still backing the president. >> the president is not a racist. >> were the president's tweets that said "go back," racist, yes or no? >> no. >> the president taking note of the vote and the republicans unified behind him. the debate itself, full of dramatic moments like this one from civil rights icon john lewis. >> i know racism when i see it. i know racism when i feel it. and at the highest level of government, there's no room for racis racism. >> house speaker nancy pelosi raising the stakes when she described the president's remarks on the house floor. >> every single member of this institution, democratic and republican, should join us in condemning the president's

>> up to them. go wherever they want, or they can stay. but they should love our country. >> the president's four progressive targets speaking out against him together to cbs. >> do you feel enough republicans have spoken up against the president? >> absolutely not. >> what message does that send? >> that the normalization of it, the fact that it's against our core american values, that they're choosing him over country. >> some of the president's allies like anthony scaramucci were still strongly critical of his attack. >> the president calls himself a stable genius. start sending out some more stable genius-ified tweets. you know, that tweet is unstable, however you want to reference it. it's racist, it's obnoxious, it's obnoxious to the italian americans, obnoxious to a very large group of people. you should apologize. >> in kentucky a group of trump
critics called resist 45 revised a billboard for horse racing coverage to say "trump 2020, america's day as the racist." democratic presidential candidate kamala harris trying to clarify her health care plan during an exclusive interview with cnn's kyung lah in iowa. critics say she shifted her stance on private health insurance. under her medicare for all plan, she says there would be very little role for private insurance because almost everything will be covered. >> what happens to those 150 million americans under president harris? >> well, it's the same as the millions of americans every day that transition into medicare as seniors. it's seamless. without any difference to their coverage in terms of access to health care. it has to happen over a period of time, there's no question, we would have to go from the current system into a medicare-for-all system. >> reporter: so people who will have private insurance would have to give that up under your
plan? >> they would eventually be covered under medicare for all, and they would still see their doctor, and that's what they want. >> reporter: joe biden says what you are suggesting is an elimination of obamacare. is that accurate? >> it's absolute not. >> biden reacted to her comments during a stop in sioux city, iowa. >> you are either medicare for all, which means obamacare's gone, gone, period, or you build on obamacare like i'm doing, and you provide a medicare option. i don't know what her position, maybe she's changed her position, i don't know. >> meantime, senator bernie sanders takes on his rivals today on medicare for all. he's scheduled to speak at george washington university. cnn's first new hampshire poll of 2020 hopefuls shows no clear leader among biden, sanders, and senator elizabeth warren. the poll also shows a lot of uncertainty with 64% saying they are undecided. retired supreme court justice john paul stevens has
died at the age of 99. the soft-spoken americaner suffered a -- midwesterner suffered a stroke and passed away tuesday at a ft. lauderdale hospital with his daughters by his side. stevens served as a naval intelligence officer in world war ii and was nominated to the high court by republican president gerald ford in 1975. stevens went on to become a leader of the court's liberal wing, serving until 2010. just two months ago, our john berman asked him about president trump's relationship with the judiciary. >> he's getting advice from people who are knowledgeable about judges, and i hope he won't do too much damage. >> reporter: do you think he understands the role of the judiciary in the country -- >> no. >> reporter: why not? >> i think he often speaks about them as obama judges and other kind of judges, but i think you have john roberts who was dead right when he said there were only one kind of judges, and they're all working for the
federal government. >> the white house released a statement saying justice stevens was known for his humility, legal action and affection for the be loved chicago cubs. his work over the course of 35 years on the supreme court will continue to shake the legal framework of our nation for years to come. chief justice john roberts says, "stevens' unrelenting commitment to justices left us a better nation." president trump says the u.s. will block sales of f-35 stealth fighter jets to turkey after turkey received a new air defense system from russia. >> because they have a system of missiles that's made in russia, they're now prohibited from buying over 100 planes. >> the president turning to a familiar tactic, blaming the obama administration for the situation which could affect turkey's membership in nato. let's bring in our report from
istanbul this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, jessica. and days after that first delivery from russia to turkey, that s-400 system, and as everyone was waiting to see how the trump administration was going to react after the threat for months of severe consequences if they went ahead with the deal, for the first time we heard from the president yesterday. as you mentioned, they are reluctantly announcing that the u.s. is going to stop the sales of about 100 f-35 stealth fighter jets to turkey. but he really wasn't very happy about that saying that the manufacturer of the plane, lockheed martin, is not going to be happy, that this is going to cost billions of dollars. and also blaming the obama administration for what he's described in the past as this mess, saying that turkey wanted to buy the american alternative.
that is the patriot missile defense system. but the obama administration wouldn't sell it to turkey. and this has been turkey's line. this is what we've heard from officials here over and over again. but some u.s. officials would really disagree with that. they say that they were ready to sell the patriots to turkey, but the negotiations fell through because turkey wanted to also buy the technology that goes with that which was a non-starter for the u.s. what is worrying about all this and the latest announcement from the president's worrying a lot of lawmakers in the u.s. and nato allies is no mention of sanctions. legally the president is obliged to sanction turkey under the countering america's adversaries through sanctions act which basically punishes countries that buy weapons from russia. and there's been no mention of that. and that seems to be what turkey is banking on. we've heard president erdogan saying president trump has the
authority to waive sanctions or delay them. and certainly this latest announcement from the president hasn't deterred turkey. just a short time ago the 14th cargo plane from russia landed in ankara, delivering more parts of the s-400. >> thank you so much. it's a race against the clock to raise the debt ceiling ahead of a looming financial crisis. house speaker nancy pelosi and treasury secretary steven mnuchin plan to speak again today to negotiate both the budget and a debt deal. the u.s. reached its $22 trillion limit on borrowing back in march. since then the government has been shifting money around to pay the bills. congress and the president need to reach a deal before the government runs out of money in september. talks have been productive, but pelosi told reporters she is not doing a short-term deal. mnuchin says he wants a comprehensive deal, but if one is not reached requested a clean
bill to raise the debt ceiling for as long as possible. that would allow the government to keep running while a budget agreement is hashed out. pelosi doesn't want any part of a clean debt ceiling vote, so the talks continue with only seven days left before the house leaves for its august recess. the urgency on both sides is very real. if no long-term budget deal is made, the short-term increase in the debt ceiling isn't passed, there could be another government shutdown. the justice department will not bring federal charges against the new york city police officer accused of fatally choking eric garner. >> black lives, they matter here! >> black lives, they matter here! >> garner's final words, "i can't breathe," became a rallying cry in the black lives matter movement. the medical examiner's office ruled the death a homicide. but attorney general william barr made the decision not to bring charges citing with the justice department team from new
york over the civil rights division in washington. >> barr said prosecutors could not successfully prove the officer acted willfully. garner's family disagrees. >> fire him! i watched him kill my father -- for five years they continuously played the video, in the courtroom, playing the video. this showed this man choked my brother on the street, choked him with no remorse. >> five years ago my son said, "i can't breathe" 11 times, and today we can't breathe. >> the nypd has brought developmental charges against officer daniel pantaleo. commissioner james o'neil will make a final decision after he receives a report and recommendation on the city of new york's settlement for $5.9 million in 2015. leaked private messages show homophobia and sexism. now protests have broken out, but puerto rico's governor

police believe the killer of a beloved community activist in baton rouge was likely a tenant in one of her rental homes who was behind on his rent. investigators say 38-year-old ron germane bell killed sadie roberts-joseph but say they have yet to establish a firm motive. bell, who is a convicted sex offender, is now charged with first-degree murder.
the police chief says phone calls poured in from the community, and family also helped with leads. >> all my mother ever wanted was for this community to come together. it's ironic that that happened in -- in death. what she wanted to happen in life came to fruition in death. however, we will see to it that her legacy continues. came together tuesday for a - vigil at the african-american museum that roberts-joseph curated and founded in 2001. they also prayed for the suspect saying he and his family were also struggling. puerto rico's governor is refusing to step down as police clash with protesters demanding he resign. there have been days of demonstrations following the leak of his private group chats. the 900-page leak reveals a
vengeful approach to governing and conversations that include homophobic and sexist remarks. it comes as two former officials were arrested in a federal corruption investigation. the protests prompting royal caribbean to cancel a cruise ship stop in san juan. 70 million people facing some very dangerous heat for the rest of the week. an update for you when we come back.

[ cheers ] hundreds of protesters gathering at the base on the big island of hawaii. they are trying to block construction of an 18-story, $1 billion telescope. native hawaiians consider it a sacred mountain. for astronomers, it is one of the best places on earth to observe space. protesters sat in chairs to block the road leading to the site and each chained themselves to a -- even chained themselves to a metal grate. all sides are working on existing telescopes in the area have suspended operations citing

temperatures of 95 or higher over the next week with some 70 million people under some sort of heat advisory. we go to ivan cabrera. >> hottest temperatures of the summer, good morning, guys. this is going to continue through the upcoming weekend. this is a relentless heat wave with a big dome of high pressure. the heat dome we call it setting up, sinking, compressing very hot air. take a look at this. heat warnings already with heat indices this afternoon i think about 105 to 110. that includes st. louis. we have tens and tens of millions of us included, not just in the midsection of the country, along 95 here. also 105 to 110. this is not just today or tomorrow or the next day, it's continuing through sunday. by the way, the overnight temperatures aren't going to cool off at all with overnight lows in the 70s and 80s. but this is a way the humidity will make it feel this afternoon. anywhere from 95 to 105. a few scattered showers and thunderstorms for tomorrow, that will bring us from low 90s to mid 80s, then we're back into
it. temperatures are going to be soaring by the latter part of the week and into the weekend. look at the triple digits, this is not factoring in the humidity. this is actual air temperature that will be 100 in d.c. on saturday. and in new york, as well, by the time we get into saturday afternoon. so once again the hottest temperatures, and i think the longest stretch of heat we've seen so far this summer. guys? well, she beat cancer and could not contain her excitement. [ bell ] [ cheers ] >> darla jay rang the cancer bell so hard she broke it. she just completed her radiation treatment for breast cancer at the harris health system in houston. she was first diagnosed back in february. monday was the last of her 30 radiation treatments. congratulations to darla. >> keep ringing that bell once we fix that thing, all right. very great story. ahead, house republicans follow a familiar pattern, that
eliquis is proven to treat and help prevent another dvt or pe blood clot... almost 98% of patients on eliquis didn't experience another. ...and eliquis has significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis is fda-approved and has both. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. what's around the corner could be surprising. ask your doctor about eliquis.

been warning saying there's going to be severe consequences if turkey went ahead with the deal and acquired the s-400 missile defense system from russia, and they did go ahead with this. we saw the first deliveries coming in on friday, and for days, there was no real reaction from the trump administration until we heard from the president yesterday reluctantly announcing that they will not allow the sale of the f-35 fighter jets go ahead. but he really was very unhappy with that saying that it's going to cost billions of dollars, that lockheed martin, the manufacturer of the f-35, is not going to be happy about it. as you mentioned, again blaming the obama administration for what he described last month as this current mess. basically saying that turkey wanted to buy the american alternative to the s-400. the patriot missile defense system. it was the obama administration that did not sell them the patriots. and this is really what we've
heard from turkish officials over and over again saying that they've tried to buy this, the patriot, but it was blocked by previous u.s. administrations. some u.s. officials would disagree saying that there were negotiation, but turkey wanted to also buy the technology that goes with the missiles. something the u.s. was not willing to do. but a very critical point right now is that the president did not mention sanctions. he's obliged under the american law to basically hit turkey with sanctions, impose sanctions under the countering america's adversaries through sanctions act. but so far no mention of that, and that seems to be what has given turkish officials including president erdogan the confidence to go ahead with the deal. >> certainly have not heard the last of this. reporting live from istanbul, thanks. america's largest drug makers sold 76 billion ox co-don

about its digital currency proposal libra. and it was clear members do not trust facebook. >> facebook is dangerous. now facebook might not intend to be dangerous, but surely they don't respect the power of the technologies they're playing with like a toddler who's gotten his hands on a book of matches. facebook has burned down the house over and over and called every arson a learning experience. >> republican senator martha mcsally struck a similar tone saying, quote, instead of cleaning up your house, now you're launching into another business model. facebook wasn't alone with executives from google, amazon, and apple also taking the heat on capitol hill. the companies were repeatedly pressed to answer for their market dominance and reports of anti-competitive tactics. the shift in d.c.'s sentiment toward big tech has been a long time coming. facebook and google have faced
