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.

Plus, the President says he will “surge” federal law enforcement officers to Chicago and other American cities even though local leaders are pushing back. Former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge said it would be a “cold day in hell” before he would agree to a “unilateral, uninvited intervention.” He joins AC360 and says he’s disappointed with the President’s response and it seems like a “reality TV approach” to a very serious problem.

In his first coronavirus briefing in months, President Trump admitted the Covid-19 crisis will probably get worse before it gets better.

He tells AC360 President Trump lacked empathy and compassion for the Southern states in dire situations and he showed no urgency in making a federal plan. Plus, protesters and federal agents continue to clash in downtown Portland, Oregon as local officials and lawmakers scrutinize the increased federal presence. Mayors of six large cities sent a letter to the administration slamming deployment of federal forces to stop protests. Democratic Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is one of those mayors and has been monitoring the protests in his city for weeks. He joins AC360 and says the presence of the federal officers and their actions is what’s making the people of Portland so angry especially when the protests were mostly peaceful.

As Covid-19 cases continue to rise throughout the South and Southwest of the U.S., White House Task Force Member Dr. Anthony Fauci suggested the country might need to “reset.” At least 27 states have paused or rolled back their re-openings as the U.S. recently saw the highest daily number of cases, 67,417. William Haseltine, Chair and President of ACCESS Health International, tells Anderson Cooper we are in a very dangerous situation and desperately need guidance.  Plus, the Moderna coronavirus vaccine is showing “promising” safety and immune response results. Dr. Tal Zaks, Moderna’s Chief Medical Officer, joins AC360 to give an update on the trial and thinks the chances of this vaccine working are “pretty good.”

President Trump gave a campaign-like speech in the Rose Garden and offered no plan to help stop the surge of coronavirus cases throughout the country. Meanwhile, White House Task Force Member Dr. Anthony Fauci warned Covid-19 could become as serious as the 1918 flu that killed more than 50 million people. Arizona had to pause its reopening because cases were spiking. Dr. Quinn Snyder is an Emergency Room Physician on the frontline in Arizona fighting the virus. He tells Anderson Cooper he wishes the President and other politicians would let medical professionals and scientists handle the pandemic because “the virus is going to do what it wants to do.” Plus, the President took aim at governors during his rant at the White House saying his administration “made a lot of governors look fantastic.” Michigan Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been outspoken about the White House’s handing of the pandemic. She joins AC360 to react to the President’s comments and says it’s “troubling and disturbing” to hear remarks like that when there’s so much work to do.

Pres. Trump: “I have a very good relationship with Dr. Fauci”

President Trump says he has a very good relationship with White House Task Force Member Dr. Anthony Fauci despite the White House attempting to discredit the nation’s top infectious disease expert. Dr. Fauci has been increasingly vocal about his concerns over reopening the country while there’s a surge of coronavirus cases in some states. Peter Staley, an AIDS activist and a member of the Covid-19 Working Group of New York, has worked with Dr. Fauci for decades and has been talking to him throughout the pandemic. He tells Anderson Cooper Dr. Fauci is “deeply frustrated” and just wants to fight the virus and save lives. Plus, the superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District, the second largest school district in the country, announced they will start the school year online only, despite the President and his administration pushing for schools to reopen. Arne Duncan, former Education Secretary in the Obama Administration, joins Anderson Cooper and says superintendents ultimately have the power to make the decisions that are best for their schools, not the governors or the President.

Trump threatens to cut funding if schools don’t reopen

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.
