8:00 pm
we don't make the decision about how they're going to spend their money. they do. and it empowers these families to launch their children and give them more opportunity as they grow up. >> empowering and transformative, as it has been described by some democrats in washington. senator, ohio is a good representation of the u.s. as a whole. it is diverse. there's urban areas, rural areas and a fairly even distribution of democrats and republicans. why haven't they been able to connect here? >> i'll answer it this way. i think that for the first time in a long time, in either party, a president of the united states is putting workers at the center of trade policy, tax policy, wages, all that we need to do. in the past, presidents of both parties have put corporate
8:01 pm
interests front and center. i won in ohio because i talk about the child tax credit, because raising the minimum wage. because a trade policy that focuses on workers. and joe biden is the most proworker president. he talks about unions, talks about giving unions the right to organize and bargain collectively. we're seeing wages go up for the first time in years. for years, corporate profits have gone up, executive compensation has exploded upwards. and it's beginning to change now. that's the really good news about this biden economic recovery. >> i want to talk about what's going in washington because republicans are expected, senator, to block a procedural vote on the bipartisan infrastructure bill tomorrow. they say that they want more time to hash out the details, especially over how to fund it. you have been involved in some of the consultations with lawmakers. do you think that president biden's bipartisanship effort will pay off, or will the gop
8:02 pm
refuse to play ball? >> well, i hope it pays off. it's up to the republicans to continue negotiations and move on this. it's the oldest trick in the book to just sort of say, well, i need more time, i need more time, i need more time. i want to get this done. i hope it's bipartisan. if it's not, we need to go big. where the president is going in cincinnati, one of the biggest public works projects in the country, the bridge which crosses the ohio river to kentucky, it's 3% of gdp crosses that bridge every day. that's essential that we fix that bridge. it's essential that we invest in infrastructure. but infrastructure is not so narrowly defined. it's broadband, it's the child tax credit, it's education, it's health care, it's home care, it's all those things that help families -- building a foundation under families so
8:03 pm
kids have more opportunity and can launch into a better life. it's not just highways and bridges. it's all of those things that matter in people's lives. i want to see us go big on all of that. i hope republicans want to go along. we will do it if they don't. but i'm hopeful that it can be bipartisan. >> you were talking about ohio and -- listen, i think that -- these beautiful midwestern cities, these beautiful, i should say, american cities like cincinnati, like columbus, like detroit, it's always amazing to see them and to see an old-school downtown. i was so happy to be here and to see that. but also people are getting out now but coronavirus cases are rising in ohio. the state has fully vaccinated nearly 46% of its population just below the rate of the whole country, senator. but the vaccine demand now is scarce. my question is, are you worried about what happens if vaccinations don't pick up? >> i'm very concerned.
8:04 pm
i think ohio, unfortunately, we've had pretty bad leadership -- really bad leadership out of the legislature. we don't invest in public health or public education. there's this sort of move from the far, from the radical right against vaccinations. i'm hopeful -- the most important thing in the president's visit is to encourage people to get vaccinated. we know we can't return to the kind of lifestyle as one writer wrote the other day, a collective extuberance that when people get together and celebrate, and go through their normal course of affairs, the normal mess of life, if you will, we also can't get our economy going the way we need too if people -- if people get sick, if people have to continue to isolate because so many still haven't gotten vaccinated. i'm hopeful the message is loud and clear. i know it has been on your show, don. i know it's been throughout cnn.
8:05 pm
but it's so important that people get vaccinated so we can get back to a normal life and we can -- this economy is poised to really take off. everything is in place. but this illness continues to drag us down as a country. >> senator sherrod brown, thank you so much, i appreciate you joining me this evening. >> sherrod brown, the democratic senator from ohio. at six months into his presidency, the stakes could not be higher for joe biden who will take questions from americans tomorrow night at cnn's presidential town hall right here in cincinnati. i will be the moderator. the town hall taking place as the senate takes a key vote on advancing biden's massive infrastructure plan. but tonight republicans are vowing to block the vote. the president likely to take questions on the surge in new covid-19 cases. the head of the cdc saying that the aggressive delta variant making up 83% of all new cases as vaccination rates are
8:06 pm
stalling. and jeff bezos making a successful trip to the education of space and back. bezos saying he wants to make space travel commercially viable someday. stay tuned. i want to bring in cnn's chief national affairs correspondent mr. jeff zeleny. six months into joe biden's presidency. he's going to be taking questions from americans at the town hall tomorrow but you have the covid cases going up, the delta variant is out there and the republicans are poised to block this vote on infrastructure. he's up against a lot. >> he is. he's only at the sixth month mark of his presidency which sounds early but it's actually not that early. talking to white house officials throughout the day and this evening, one says the clock is running, we know it and the president certainly knows it. so the reality is, on a variety of fronts, there is a sense of urgency on covid-19 first and foremost large by because of the economic impact of this.
8:07 pm
it effects people on both sides of these divide and the infrastructure bill you mentioned. if republicans block it tomorrow, look for the white house and the president to hold democrats together potentially as a plan "b," putting it all in the reconciliation bill to keep that alive. so a variety of fronts. here at home, never mind the foreign challenges with hacking and other things. certainly many summer challenges like any president. it's a long, hot summer for joe biden and the challenges are really mounting. >> i mean, speaking of infrastructure, there's no greater example of how infrastructure needs to be fixed when you look at the bridge here. there's a bridge here that people are worried that they go over every day, they're worried is going to fall down. our country is so fortunate, we have these life-saving vaccines, jeff, free and accessible. we're heading into this crisis now because we can't get past this political divide. you had the opportunity to talk to folks here in ohio. what do they have to say? what's on their minds? >> there's no question that the
8:08 pm
vaccine hesitancy is a challenge. i spent time yesterday with the first ladies for health in cincinnati, a group of spouses, wives of pastors as well as the wife of the mayor, first ladies for health, they're on the front line of vaccine hesitancy and my conversation with barbara lynch, she is working so hard to try and talk people into getting vaccines, but listen to what she said here about someone in her own family. >> come up against a brick wall and trying to figure out what we can do now to induce people to get the vaccine. i have a grandson who is not taking the vaccine. and we've preached to him and preached to him about it but he's not taking the vaccine. he believes the stuff that he's seeing on the internet. >> so definitely there is a sense of misinformation out there. there's disinformation. don, what i found was a little surprising to me, it's not just on political lines. yes, there are many trump supporters, others who are not taking the vaccine, but it's
8:09 pm
more than that. a lot of young people are not taking the vaccine for a variety of reasons. one common theme, that disinformation. the white house is fighting back, but they're not necessarily listening to the white house. so that is one big challenge. >> i experienced this with my own family. there is -- here i am on television talking about it every night. there's a lack of urgency for getting the vaccine. perhaps this new delta variant and where we see what's happening with it will change some of that and this campaign to get rid of the disinformation from the white house, hopefully that will help as well. also tonight, i understand, that you're getting information about what republicans may do next when it comes to this january 6th select committee. what are you hearing? >> we're hearing that republicans really after a -- one day after being name today the committee, kevin mccarthy named an interesting group of characters, all deniers of the insurrection and they are poised to muddy the waters, if you will, to turn the tables on democrats to try and say, look,
8:10 pm
this was a security issue that speaker pelosi should have solved. it was something her purview to keep the capitol safe. democrats are saying they're trying to muddy the waters. this is not going to be a committee that's going to independently look at this that's going to be another washington sort of drag out fight. people are not interested in another food fight in washington, regardless of what side you're on. but that is what sounds like is coming down the way. >> it is a desperate attempt because it's hard to change the narrative when we have so many images coming out -- >> and arrests and cases day by day. >> and none of them mention nancy pelosi except that they don't like her. thank you very much. i want to turn to "washington post" investigate reporter. she's the co-author of the book i alone can fix it donald j. trump's catastrophic final year.
8:11 pm
so good to see you again. there's so many details from your book that we need to discuss. trump's ally tom barrack arrested and charged with illegal foreign lobbying on behalf of the uae. you've interviewed barrack multiple times. are you surprised by these charges? >> i think in a way i am because it's so unusual for the government to bring these kinds of cases. they're serious cases, don, make no mistake, when federal prosecutors subpoena your records as they did with tom barrack more than a year and a half ago, it's a big deal. but the government is usually shy of bringing this kind of case, charging someone with essentially illegally lobbying. but you know what's interesting about tom barrack's charges and the arrest and that he's accused of basically trying to use his in with donald trump, a good
8:12 pm
friend, an -- you know, he was basically part of the kitchen cabinet for donald trump and he's accused of using that in -- to create foreign policy for his allies in the uae and also in saudi arabia. and, you know, that's not very far from what donald trump was doing himself. he set the model. he was a believer in basically making a personal profit, a personal gain from his connections and ultimately from his role as president. >> carol, if you will, i want to get to a line in your book that stands out to me, most of trump's failings can be explained by a simple truth, he cared more about himself than the country. is this selfishness still putting the country at risk? >> you know one of the biggest takeaways from phil rucker and my reporting for our book, i
8:13 pm
alone can fix it, was this idea that so many insiders were really in panic, near panic, don, about how quickly the president would put his personal gain in front of american health, american lives, in front of the sort of sanctity of the constitution, in front of the democracy's stability. and recent -- a lot of people could say, oh, you looked back for a year at the final year of donald trump's presidency. that's interesting history. but it's not just interesting history. it's current events today. donald trump just recently gave a statement explaining why people don't trust the vaccine. his supporters often don't trust the vaccine. and he said they also don't trust the election. as if to equate the two, as if to say, you know, i'm pushing
8:14 pm
you on this conspiracy that i won the election and it was rigged against me. and at the same time he's pushing and enabling people to distrust something that could save their lives. >> you and your colleague phillip rucker interviewed trump for this book. this is what he said about the republicans visiting mar-a-lago to kiss the ring, he said we've had so many, so many are coming in, trump said, it's been pretty amazing. you see the numbers. they need the endorsement. i don't say this in a braggadocios way, but if they don't get the endorsement, they don't win. i don't have to tell you that a lot of people want to put trump in the rear-view mirror, but that can't happen because he's still leading the republican party. he has a huge hold on them. >> you're absolutely right. there is a genius in donald trump which is his mastery of
8:15 pm
the megaphone. he really tapped into a dissatisfaction and a disaffection in a very large part of american voters. people who felt dismissed, felt the economic winds were blowing against them, felt the elitists in government were ignoring them. some of them were white supremacists and nationalists as well. but donald trump figured out what was making them mad and he kept smo kept stoking their anger and fear. today, the things that he says, whether they're true or not, a large segment of the population believes as if it's the bible. and it's a huge problem because you know you can't unhook these people from the person they trust and really adore. donald trump continues to stoke fear about the government being something that will do harm to you.
8:16 pm
he continues to sow distrust about the vaccine. let's be clear, he is the prominent standard-bearer for the republican party. if a primary were held today, he would be the republican nominee for president. >> i have to read something else that you said during that interview. i'm sure you won't mind if i continue to quote from your book. it would be hard if abraham lincoln was chosen as a vice president. it would have been heart for them to beat me. obviously, that is ridiculous. >> it's strange and it's strained to put it lightly. many historians rank donald trump in the very bottom of effectiveness and good character as a president. however, donald trump views himself as essentially -- basically number one, a person who could beat george washington
8:17 pm
and abe lincoln if they were teamed up against him. he has a kind of alternate reality and in our interview with him, it was really important for him to get those facts, his alternative facts out to the public. i think that's why he sat down with us. he said a lot of other things, don, in our interview that strained credulity, he said that most of the people who were charging up capitol hill on january 6th were very loving people. that they were ushered into the building by friendly capitol police officers. he said that he believed that crowd that came out for him on january 6th may have stretched into as many as a million people, the largest crowd he had ever seen all cheering for him. none of those things are true. and yet it's important to donald trump that he repeat them and the question becomes really, you
8:18 pm
know, how many other people are going to continue to believe this information for which there is no evidence. >> it is really interesting how he lives in a delusion and he gets other people to buy into that. it's amazing. your reporting about the chairman of the joint chiefs, general mark milley, preparing to stop the then-president from attempting a coup, it's stunning. you said, they may try, but they're not going to f-ing he told them. we're the guys with the guns. you've been reporting on trump for years and this is your second book on him. i spoke to you not long ago about a book. it was chilling to learn that he would stop at nothing to stay in power. >> don, you said it better than i could have. but i will add one thing which
8:19 pm
is, phil and i when we sat down with people and interviewed more than 140 senior trump advisers, friends, government officials, people with a front-row seat, and each time we sat down, we were gobsmacked by a new fact. and it was chilling to the bone to hear that generals, four-star generals, people who had led thousands of men and women into combat, were in near panic about how they were going to block donald trump from illegally or improperly or dangerously misusing the military simply to sow chaos and fear and maintain his grasp on power to retain his position -- >> carol, i know we have a delay. why didn't they speak up? why didn't they say anything at the time? >> you know, we were on guard
8:20 pm
for this question about why -- we asked the same question, let me put it that way. what in the world -- why did you stand by his side quietly? why didn't you object? and what we learned in our reporting was that so many individuals were either afraid of president trump and what he could do to them or they were afraid that if they spoke up, somebody more yes, man, somebody weaker, somebody worse would replace them in their positions. and there are moments in this book that are very striking where some of the president's most ardent supporters become fearful and disgusted with him. there is a moment very close to the heels of january 6th. it's that evening. and the white house counsel, again, pat cipollone, one of the president's most loyal and trusted advisers, threatens to
8:21 pm
resigns because he cannot believe that he's being told they are being urged to write up pardons for the president, two of his sons, for rudy giuliani, to protect them from the possibility that they'll be charged with inciting a riot. he cannot believe anybody would try to do this. at all levels, from government officials, to the most, again, most loyal deputies, people were throwing up their hands at what donald trump was doing. >> carol, we're so happy that you're here. it's been a pleasure. thank you so much. >> thank you, don. great questions. >> thank you. the book, again, is "i alone can fix it." so the richest man on earth, flying to the edge of space, what does it say about america?

8:26 pm
so we have been broadcasting from outside the union terminal in cincinnati where tomorrow i'm going to be moderating cnn's town hall with president joe biden. but i want to take you inside. you have to see this. i walked in tonight and i was just blown away by the art deco masterpiece. it's 88-year history, including, look at this, these are live pictures, right, these 10,000 feet of mosaic tiles and a rotunda dome. look at the murals. there were 16 in all that were commissioned for this beautiful historic building in 1931 when they started building it.
8:27 pm
it opened in 1933. it is design perfection. beautiful. if you have the chance, come here and check out the cincinnati union terminal. nothing else like it. i haven't seen it in my life. just gorgeous. now i want to talk about more innovation in this country. jeff bezos, the richest person on the planet, making a childhood dream coming true, blasting up to the edge of outer space and returning to earth successfully today. bezos saying he wants to do it again and make space travel commercially viable someday. so let's bring in now presidential historian jon meacham who is the host of the podcast "hope through history." a lot to discuss. we're going to get to the space launch. there's so much style in this building. we don't do style like this anymore, sadly. i digress. let's talk about the launch. how are you looking at jeff
8:28 pm
bezos, the richest man on earth, launching to the edge of somespace, versus the collective exploration that this country used to do. >> america works best when private and public work together, whether it's highways, railroads, the conversation that began about the years that your -- the cincinnati place was finished up, when franklin roosevelt came to power and began to shift the emphasis in america from being entirely about private enterprise and being about this intermeshing of public and private. it's a conversation that has worked out pretty well for us. sometimes it veers to the right. sometimes it veers to the left. but it's a coherent one. one of the aspects of the last four years from 2017 to 2021 is that it was not a sequential chapter in that ongoing conversation.
8:29 pm
so, you know, i think that if i were jeff bezos, i would be more careful about the messaging here. i think there are a lot of legitimate questions about what's happening on earth related to amazon and so that's something that needs to unfold. on the other hand, it is american ingenuity and possibility. what i would hope is that it is a sign that we can do things in this country. if we can focus -- and i think you're right, there's nothing wrong with individual effort, obviously. that's the fuel of capitalism. it's the fuel of what's made democracy work. but we need to make sure that everybody believes that someday they can be part of that journey, not literally to space, but the american journey, and try to rebuild the engine of mobility in this country. >> it's also a pivotal week for
8:30 pm
president biden's domestic agenda. he's been trying to be mr. bipartisan. but we've learned that republicans are expected to block the vote on the infrastructure bill. if that happens, will he have to change his approach? >> well, bipartisan is the goal and i think the president understands he's been hired to governor, he's been hired to unify the country, not necessarily on specific issue after specific issue. but try to achieve a certain unity. it goes to the conversation you were having with carol, at least about the rules of the road. let's acknowledge that the constitution, however flawed, gives us a guide to living together and we can amend it and try to change it as we go along. but you can't have one of the two functional parties slipping into a permanent state of the
8:31 pm
denial of reality and the denial of the constitution when they don't like the result. and that's where as currently constituted the republican party is right now. and so i think the president knows that he won this election fairly and squarely and with a number very much in line with history and above people like truman and kennedy, nixon the first time, more than george w. bush the first time, more than donald trump in 2016. having won that election, he's been charged with, again, making us believe again that the engines of mobility, the engines of reform can work. and so i think that at the end of the day he will put a premium on results because he wants to prove -- and this is the work of
8:32 pm
the last chapter of his life -- he wants to prove that democracy can deliver. and it's really, really hard when almost half the country is not interested in democracy delivering for we the people, but only for their party and their vision of this cult of personality that has subsumed that party. my money is on president biden. >> jon, i'm having so much fun talking to you. i want you to stand by. i want to take this over the break. i'm going to take a break and come back with jon meacham. we'll be right back. ...what?! pizza on a bagel-we can all agree with that. do you want a hug?

>> i got you. so i should say -- >> now i can hear you. now i can hear you. >> okay. i say -- i think -- great president -- and they have to repeat it again and again and i think the story for president biden is can democracy deliver? can, in fact, this journey toward a more perfect union continue to unfold amid these elemental forces that are trying to undermine the experiment in liberty that depends on our individual habits of heart and mind. and i think that as long as he stays true to that, then that narrative will be coherent and he has a remarkably difficult task here, as difficult as anybody since lincoln, to try to

8:40 pm
beaten to death in the streets of america by state-sponsored -- a state-sponsored totalitarian police force and there was, in fact, problem. and the fact that progress is being repealed means we have to redouble our efforts. history is not a straight line. it's barely a zigzag line. there are steps forward and there are a lot of steps back. and so the hope here is founded on an awareness, the energy for -- on the part of those who believe that the vote, that making genuine the promise of the declaration of independence available not just to some but to all, that those principles, again, those habits of heart and mind, will become reality. and it is not a blind optimism,
8:41 pm
believe me. this is a bloody, difficult and tragic and painful history that we've lived through and are living through. but we can't give up. democracies are the exception, not the rule. there's nothing fore ordained about the ongoing success of the american experiment. and there are a lot of folks who wouldn't even argue it's been a successful experiment. i disagree with that. but i understand those who see the country's history as fundamentally flawed. of course it's flawed. history is all of us, right? what is a democracy but the fullest manifestation of all of us? and so we have to do everything we can to press on. >> well, jon, we love having you, especially when we can hear

the head of the cdc saying the more contagious delta variant of the coronavirus now makes up 83% of new cases as vaccination rates are stalling around the country. here in ohio where president joe biden participates in cnn's town hall tomorrow night, the department of health reporting that the state seeing the highest number of new cases since may. joining me now is the medical director at tri health infectious diseases here in cincinnati. this is very important. so not even half of ohioans are vaccinated. are you concerned? >> i'm very concerned. this delta variant is so incredibly infectious, i'm worried that those unvaccinated people are going to get it. >> what are you hearing about patients, about why they aren't getting vaccinated? are they telling you? >> some are worried that it hasn't been fully fda approved
8:48 pm
yet. others just don't believe in vaccines and that's a tough road to hoe. >> we're seeing lower vaccination rates than expected, even among health care workers and hospital workers. >> it's tough. we have a huge campaign going onto educate our health care workers to tell them how safe and effective the vaccine is. some of them are concerned. once we get full fda approval, most of them will agree to take it. >> the american academy of pediatrics issued a mandate for children, especially children in school. they are reporting that 23,000 kids caught coronavirus last week. are you seeing an uptick in younger patients? >> our pediatricians tell us that they're starting to see coronavirus in the children and they're really worried about when school starts that it's going to spread quickly. they're also worried that small children will have difficulty wearing masks in school and
8:49 pm
that's going to be, you know, difficult to get them to comply. >> what symptoms are you seeing and how sick are these children or teenagers? >> they have high fevers. they feel very rundown, extreme fatigue. we don't see a lot of admissions to the hospital because kids weather it pretty well. but we need a vaccine for children. >> most of the quarantine, parents felt some ease because kids weren't really getting sick, right? but now you see children getting sick. what can parents do to protect -- what can we do to protect the children in our society? >> i think the main thing you can do is get yourself and the rest of your family vaccinated that are old enough to get a vaccine. that way you'll protect your kids. if the children are around other unvaccinated people, they can wear masks if they want. >> there's still plenty of people who think that, well, even if you get vaccinated, you can still get covid. what's the need for me to get
8:50 pm
vaccinated? >> well, there are a few breakthrough cases of people who are fully vaccinated that get covid, but they get very mild disease and we don't think they're able to transmit it easily at all. it keeps you from getting sick enough from going to the hospital. >> is it true that this has become a disease of the unvaccinated or a pandemic of the unvaccinated? >> it they're all unvaccinated that end up getting admitted. >> and your message is get vaccinated? >> get a vaccine, it's safe, it's effective, it works. >> i'm so happy you're here to help give us some information on this. thank you, sir. i appreciate it. dr. steven blatt. we'll be right back.
