Despite CNN’s reporting that Dr. Redfield, the CDC director, is on the hot seat, Trump says he’s doing a “very good job.” Kathleen Sebelius, former Secretary of Health and Human Services, tells Anderson Cooper it’s a terrible time for tension with the CDC, who are “gold standard epidemiologists.” Plus, as many fans are desperate for sports to return, Charles Barkley, former NBA player and Turner Sports analyst, is hosting “The Match” to raise money for COVID-19 relief. It’s a golf tournament featuring some of the most well-known athletes in the world: Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning vs. Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady. He joins AC360 to preview the event.

As coronavirus cases are surging in some areas of the country, President Trump and his administration are pushing schools to reopen by fall. Trump threatened he “may cut off funding” to schools that don’t reopen and says he disagrees with the CDC guidelines for safely reopening schools because they are “very tough” and “expensive.”  Vice President Pence now says the CDC will issue new guidelines. Richard Carranza, Chancellor for the New York City Department of Education, tells Anderson Cooper they are depending on the CDC guidance to keep the students and teachers stay safe as they try to return to in-person learning. Plus, a new Yale study says half of coronavirus cases could be caused by “silent spreaders,” people who are asymptomatic or presymptomatic. Alison Galvani, the director at the Yale Center for Infectious Disease Modeling and Analysis, joins AC360 to discuss what the study found and says one of the challenges of Covid-19 is people are most infectious before they have any symptoms.

Plus, President Trump’s niece accuses him of being a “sociopath” in her forthcoming tell-all book. She also claims he hired and paid someone to take his SATs but the White House says that is false.

Obama Susan Rice reacts to reporting from CNN’s Jim Sciutto. Multiple former Trump administration officials who briefed the President told Sciutto that Trump's resistance to intelligence warnings about Russia led his national security team - including those who delivered the President's Daily Brief to him orally - to do so less often. “You don't intimidate the messengers .. this President is derelict in his duty as commander in chief to brush off information that is critical to the life and death of our service members and do so just because he doesn't want to hear bad news,” says Rice.

During the first White House Coronavirus Task Force briefing in nearly two months, Vice President Michael Pence claims Americans are seeing “encouraging news” despite 32 states across the country seeing an increase over the past week. Pence also defended the President’s recent rallies in Oklahoma and Arizona, two states seeing a spike in cases, saying Americans have freedoms of speech and assembly. Marc Lotter is the Director of Strategic Communications for Trump 2020. He joins AC360 and says even in the states with a jump in cases, masks shouldn’t be mandatory statewide and it should be up to the governors, mayor and local executives to put those rules in place. Plus, Texas was one of the first states to reopen but because of the volume of new cases, the Governor has “paused” the state’s phased economic reopening. Dr. Peter Hotez, Dean of the School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor University, tells AC360 Texas is in a better position with more people wearing masks and bars closed but he isn’t sure that will be enough to stop the virus.

An influential COVID-19 model projects nearly 180,000 deaths in the U.S. by October 1. That number drops to 146,000 if 95% of Americans wear face masks. Dr. Chris Murray is the director of the group at the University of Washington that’s been working on the models. He joins AC360 to explain how wearing masks could not only save lives but also help the economy. Plus, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler says the House “may very well” try to impeach Attorney General William Barr. This comes after a deputy to formal special counsel Robert Mueller who prosecuted the Roger Stone case testified in front of lawmakers that Stone was “treated differently from any every other defendant” because of his relationship to the President. Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff tells Anderson Cooper that what Barr has done with the DOJ is dangerous and there are two standards of justice: one for friends of the President and another for everyone else.

Podcast cover

President Trump is getting ready to hit the campaign trail for his first rally since the coronavirus shut down most of the country. That rally will be held in Tulsa, Oklahoma where social distancing is unlikely and face masks are optional. With Oklahoma’s cases rising, many fear how the rally could potentially spread the virus. A key model often used by the White House is now projecting the United States will have more than 200,000 coronavirus-related deaths by October. Dr. Chris Murray is the director of the group at the University of Washington that’s been working on these models. He joins AC360 to explain why the new modeling suggests so many more deaths. Plus, the President signed an executive order on police reform that includes a national database of police officers with a history of excessive force. A day earlier, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced police reforms for her city following the killing of Rayshard Brooks by Atlanta police. She tells Anderson Cooper the national database is an important step but there’s much more to be done.
