4:00 pm
>> many secretaries pointed out the reservations hinge on cyber security. worrying about the transmit ago and storage of information. >> thank you so much for watching. erin burnett with kate baldwin starts right now. donald trump stepping up his anti-media tweets. should he can focusing on his meeting with vladimir putin instead? plus, trump's controversial video tweet attacking cn sn and chris christie blistered over his day at the beach. why is everyone outraged except him? let's go out front. good evening, welcome to a special edition of outfront tonight. i'm kate baldwin. out front tonight we have breaking news. you'll be looking at air force one, president trump prepared right now to head back to
4:01 pm
washington. he spent most of the long holiday weekend at his golf club in new jersey. and maybe, just maybe, he's also with his return trading twitter attacks for something else. like preparing for what may be the most important meeting yet of his presidency. the first face to face with vladimir putin. trump's expected to meet with the russian leader at the g-20 summit this week. the president also on calls today with several world leaders, but it wasn't a complete about face. the weekend twitter attacks against the press continued today with this. i will read it. at some point the fake news will be forced to discuss our great jobs numbers and strong economy. success with isis, the border, and so much else. which is ironic considering a rough analysis of the president's tweets show he spends most time tweeting talking about the media than he does anything else. sara murray is live at the white house with more on this. sara, a week that was dominated by his attack against a female
4:02 pm
journalist is escalating further with a video the white house is facing new and more questions about. >> that's right. the president will be returning here to the white house shortly. he's capping off a few days of phone calls with foreign leaders ahead of this foreign trip, but also launching a fiery tweet at his favorite foil, that would, of course, be the press. >> reporter: days before a series of high stakes meetings with world leaders, president trump is turning his attention to bashing the media. trump taking to twitter over the weekend to pooes video showing him pummeling a cnn logo. and using a speech honoring veterans to lob attacks at the media. >> the fake media is trying to silence us. but we will not let them. because the people know the truth. the fake media tried to stop us from going to the white house, but i'm president, and they're
4:03 pm
not. >> reporter: trump continued to air his grievances on twitter saying at some point the fake news will be forced to discuss our great jobs numbers, strong economy, success with isis, the border, and so much else. while some say trump overstepped with the wrestling video, white house officials like homeland security advisor insist it didn't go too far. >> i think no one would perceive that as a threat. i think he's beaten up in a way on cable platforms that he has a right to respond to. >> reporter: more members of trump's party are sounding the alarm about his toxic tone toward the press. ben sass accused trump of trying to use distrust in the media as a weapon to undermine american freedom. >> there's an important distinction to draw between bad stories or crappy coverage and the right that citizens have to argue about that and complain about that. and trying to weaponize distrust. >> reporter: but urging trump to
4:04 pm
tone it down could be a futile pursuit. he defended his twitter habits this weekend saying my use of social media is not presidential. it's modern-day presidential. trump's attempts to tweet the media, just the latest distraction from weightier policy matters. he spent the weekend and monday prepping for his overseas trips which included stops in jeremy and poland by calling the leaders of the countries. the g-20 meeting in germany will mark the first time trump is meeting vladimir putin face to face. trump has lavished praise on putin in the past. >> if putin likes donald trump, i consider that an asset, not a liability. >> reporter: but the president is expected to use this meeting to focus on pressing matters for the white house. including disputes in syria and ukraine. what is still unclear, according to administration officials, is blr trump will raise mrussia's mettling in the election.
4:05 pm
>> trump's advisors have encouraged him to stay away from twitter in the past, but they're not concerned about his attacks against the press. they believe he's still getting the job done, making his calls and preparing for this potentially pivotal up coming trip, and for the attacks against the media, they believe it energizes their voter base. >> thank you very much. out front with me chris, reporter and editor after cnn politics, april ryan, doug brinkley, and also david druker. okay, friends, chris, first to you. tweets from the president today. he was on calls with italy, france, germany, saudi arabia, all the above, you keep going, but there are only a couple tweets criticizing the media. should we take this as the president has learned the lessons from the weekend of his weekend rant?
4:06 pm
>> okay. i pledge during the 2016 campaign to not make anymore predictions, but i will break that pledge to make this prediction, kate. this is in no way, shape, or form, any new leaf, any trump 2.0. there is no trump but trump. donald trump is a 71-year-old man who's had a lot of success in his life, both in his life as a businessman and now in his life as a presidential candidate, and now president. he is not going to change who he is. we are 96 hours removed from attacks on msnbc hosts. we are less than that removed on our network using a prowrestling video. this is who donald trump is. it can be a week -- it really can be a day, maybe it can be a week. he will return back to who he is. this is what animates him. if you want to look for a through line for a consistent message from day one, donald
4:07 pm
trump announces for president to today, it's that anti-media, these people are lying to you, they are fake, they are false, they are biassed. that's the line. it's not going to change whether he sends out a hand full of tweets. that's who he is. >> but the defense of why he does it, that seems to have changed a little bit, april. his defense on these tweets now, it's this is what modern day presidential looks like, but he's also spent, as you will recall, a good deal of time in the past hitting another president, president obama, for not being presidential enough. walk down memory lane for this. >> i definitely think he should have worn a tie. you know? he's the president of the united states. >> i never thought of that. >> what message is he sending by not? >> it's sloppy. it's not appropriate. it's not presidential. he's the president of the united states. let him put on a tie. >> did you see yesterday obama
4:08 pm
screaming and screaming and screaming? just like the way he runs the country. nobody listens to him. screaming. >> there's a sound bite for everything. as we've all learned. if tweeting your every thought bubble is modern day presidential, then who is the president to criticize that? >> well, let me say this, kate. many people are -- people from all sectors, be it obama supporters, be it republicans, be it whomever, people are thinking that this president has an obsession, and this administration has an obsession with president obama. well, get over it. you are now president. but here's the thing. here's the issue. former president barack obama, he put his feet on the resolute desk. people complained about that. people are complaining about kellyanne conway putting her feet in the sofa of the oval
4:09 pm
office when the hbcu presidents were there. we have to be careful of how we throw stones at glass houses. when you talk about modern presidential versus traditional presidential, it's presidential, period. there is a high standard for president. and, kate, i'm hearing words now from republicans' lips, things like oh, yes, donald trump is uncouth. he's a liar. since when did we think that's great to say our president was those things? i mean, i remember a time when people revered ronald reagan and how he stood in the oval office and george h.w. bush, i remember hearing about them. i remember other presidents, and now we've changed the bar. so these tweets are very damaging to his credibility. and to his look and to his presidential stature, whether it's modern or traditional. >> you raise an interesting point. and as i ask this point, we're
4:10 pm
looking at live pictures of, i believe, president trump himself heading toward air force one to head back from his long weekend away in new jersey to washington d.c. to take part in the fourth of july ceremonies. enough of the breaking news. back to the question. doug brinkley, what's the difference between presidential and modern day presidential? >> it's donald trump has sort of shattered the mold of what is presidential. he's now behaving in a kind of bafoon way. the national inquirer has become the newspaper of choice, and he goes on media bashing any time he gets in a jam. last week he was having a terrible week. congress was adjourning. there was no repealing and replacing of obama care. he kind of had egg on his face. instead he went after mika brzezinski, in i thought a sexist and vicious way, and it continued with the phony video of the take down on cnn over the
4:11 pm
weekend. it's red meat for his base, and it makes him feel like -- it feeds the narcissistic beast that people are talking about him, and it varies the story of obama care is popular. >> we can talk about both of these things. i can walk and chew game at the same time, but you get this one. ben sass has been speaking out. he also had this tweet. random quote as we're loading four-wheelers. hey, uncle ben, did you know the president used to be a professional wrestler? if that's the take away, david, is that trump winning or losing here? >> i think trump thinking he's winning. he looks at this different than a typical politician. one day when we look back and play a word game and said what one word defines trump's presidency, we can look back on
4:12 pm
this weekend and say i'm president and you're not. i think this is about driving his personal brand and the fact that he's never functioned as the fact that he's no longer leader of the trump organization, but he's representing the united states. i think for him, the only issue becomes if there's ever any electoral consequence, because he is something that understands politics and understands winning and losing. and one of the reasons he's able to do this right now, kate, is because there is no blowback from republican voters. a lot of focus has been on republican lawmakers and why isn't there more criticism and why don't they chris dis own him or chazti chastise him. the fact is republicans on the hill are most in touch with voters and have an election sooner, and they don't have many of their voters telling them to do anything about it. with my conversations with
4:13 pm
republican votevoters, they sai they don't like his behavior or twitter habit, and then a they told me, but i'm still supporting him, and i don't regret my vote. as long as this is the atmosphere in which the president is operating, he will assume like many presidents before him, that whatever he is doing is working. and things will continue as they are. now, i will say this. he tends to go from moments like this and days like this, to conventional few days or weeks where he seems like a normal president. actually gets some things accomplished. and then he will revert back to patterns. as chris said, nothing will change, but i do think we may see a few weeks or a few days inbetween these episodes from now until the day that he is no longer president, whether that's three years, three and a half years or eight years? >> you are a risk taking kind of guy. look at you making predictions in the trump era. that's a risky bet. thank you for being here. >> up front next, where did the president get that video and why
4:14 pm
is it such a mystery? plus, trump and putin face to face for the first time. will they discuss russian election hacking? should they. and chris christie taking heat for his day in the sun on a public beach he closed to everyone but himself. i doni refuse to lie down. why suffer? stand up to chronic migraine with botox® botox® is the only treatment for chronic migraine shown to

4:18 pm
origins of the doctored wrestling video president trump shared with his followers over the weekend. a senior white house official insisting it did not come from a controversial user on a message board. we can't evidence of it existing anywhere but that message board before the president picked it up. tom foreman is out front. >> reporter: the video shared by president trump to his 33 million personal twitter followers and then to 19 million more on his presidential account was apparently first posted by a red-it use who are laid claim to that. that user of the message board reacted enthusiastically. wow, i never expected my meme to be retweeted by the god emperor himself. i am honored. but others are worried, including the anti-defamation league which found a consistent
4:19 pm
record of racism anti-semitism and bigotry. there's an online hatred and at times violent rhetoric. it calls out the president saying when those on the fringes of society feel their messaging is getting mainstream attention, that should raise alarms. >> the fake media is trying to silence us. but we will not let them. because the people know the truth. the fake media tried to stop us from going to the white house, but i'm president, and they're not. >> reporter: it all comes as the president is raging away at the media with a fiery speech and a twitter attack on two msnbc hosts that was so coors bad tha members of his own party came back. >> for the president to use that kind of language is
4:20 pm
inappropriate. >> many critics, it harkens back to the campaign when he was at times accused of sharing material promulgated by racist and citing violence. the campaign always denied the accusations, especially those about violence. and his deputy press secretary sara huk booe sanders did it again last week. >> the president in no way, form, or fashion has ever promoted or encouraged violence. if anything, quite the contrary. >> reporter: and cnn's official response to the video, the network said clearly sarah huckabee sanders lied. we should note the wrestling video does not appear to be exactly the same as the one from that user even though that user is taking claim, saying there have been some changes to the pictures and some changes to the audio. that raises questions about who
4:21 pm
made those changes. and even though the white house says they didn't get it from red-it, how did the president get it. and was he aware it had ties to the other poster on white house. we've posed those questions to the white house and are waiting for answers. >> a mystery, a necessary one. amanda carpenter is with us, jack kingston is here, and kiersten powers. . thank you for being here. into the ring, as you say, jack kingston. let's get to it. amanda, a white house says they didn't pull the video from reddit, but they didn't say how it landed in the president's hands. take a guess. >> i think it's clear that people in the white house serve a lot of -- surf a lot of alt-right websites.
4:22 pm
they cite fake news sources as a reputable source of information. look at what kellyanne conway tweeted after 60 minutes did an interview with someone who pushed wild ideas i won't get into that. they pointed to it and said this is must-see tv. trump called alex jones a conspiracy theorist. donald trump and his sons said the national inquirer should have won an award for their coverage. without a doubt, people in the white house are using official channels and resources to promote information from very questionable sources, and whether you think it's funny or not, the sub text is alarming. >> on the most basic level, why is this a mystery? the fact that the white house hasn't said, doesn't it fuel more questions than tamp them down which you would assume they would want to do? >> i think there's a great chance being played out between the media and the white house
4:23 pm
and they're used in social media as the floor, you might say. maybe there's a little bit of enjoyment saying we don't have to tell you, but let that be out there. i want to say as somebody who works for cnn part time, i've enjoyed it. cnn has been great in letting conservatives like me pro trumpers like me have a voice. i say put me in, coach. this is a game that is changing the world, and the reason why it is is because as somebody who came up with politics, i was elected to the state legislature and i was 29d years old. >> so long ago you can't even remember. >> yes, but i was told nevering were with those who buy ink by the barrel. if the newspaper says something about you, don't try to fight back. but because of those 54 million followers that the president has on twitter and on other social media networks, he's in a unique position that he can fight back.
4:24 pm
part of his view is if you're going to undermine me, i going to undermine you, and i think it's a profound debate that's evolved in american political scene. you know, some of these answers we're just going to have to find out in time in terms of the ramifications. >> don't throw only time will tell at me. that's not acceptable enough, you know. kiersten, any day, any topic, you can make the case, can you -- is there anyone that can make the case that associating himself, the president, associating himself with someone linked to anti semitic and racist content is a good thing? >> no. and i think you could make a case that for your average person on twitter q if they saw a meme and wanted to tweet it out and tweeted it out, they wouldn't be -- it wouldn't necessarily be linking themselves to somebody else. this j however, is the white house. i would use an example of any major company, if it was pepsi or something. the head of pepsi or the pr
4:25 pm
person would not tweet something out without finding out where it came from. once you send something out under the name of the institution, the institution kind of owns it. when you have the white house, which is the most prestigious institution in the country, then they should have a process where you're running through -- you know, that runs this through that and says look, where this came from. we don't want to use it. that the separate from the fact that he shouldn't do it in the first place regardless of where it came from, but in minimum, they should know where it came from. >> i think it's a different view. i think they're deliberate about that. i think they surf chat forums to see what's popular, what they like. it's not even like a dog whistle to his base, it's saying i'm one of you. i'm reading your threats and getting your content. he is saying, he essentially has an online troll army at his disposal. we all know this. he cultivates it. he likes it. this is how he winks at them and says punch cnn in the face but not really, but really, punch
4:26 pm
them in the face. >> but just beyond the trolls, when you talk about the base, is it okay, if he is just playing solely, if he is playing solely to his pabase, that's a 35% gam. is that good enough, congressman? >> i think what he's doing is fighting battles on multiple levels. in june there were 160 tweets by the white house. 120 of them had nothing to do with the media or politics. they were on substance. i'll give you an example. kate's law that was just passed by the house after two or three years of debate, there were a couple of networks that gave minimal or severe coverage. so the president tweets it out, and he talks about these things. i think he's not going to give up twitter, because it allows him to drive substantive issues, but just like any social media outlet, he does put some of this crazy stuff out there that keeps people reading. sometimes you don't pick -- i mean, this was not an endormant
4:27 pm
of that web page of that guy, but you can't hold other's comments against someone else. you can't hold black lives matter when they said kill cops against obama when he invited them to the white house. i think -- you know, madonna is on the capitol mall saying i want to blow the white house up. >> that's going back to when you won in the state legislature. >> let's go to johnny depp. i didn't hear one democrat -- >> why are you celebrity name dropping? >> because --. >> kiersten, go. >> it's not the same thing. i think this is something that they sent out from the white house twitter candidaaccount. there is some accountability from when they find out. they're not saying he's responsible for what a supporter does. we're saying if you take a product and tweet it, you should know where it came from and know the kind of person that created
4:28 pm
it, and also, again, i will say i just think the content of it was inappropriate, wherever it came from. >> and there we have it. good to see you all. thank you so much. except for you, congressman. out of the ring. he's out of the ring. out front for us, donald trump and putin. set to meet face to face, but will trump confront the russian leader about hacking the u.s. election? and out of touch. that's what some are saying about trump and his party's health care bill. listen. >> my life is being threatened by a bunch of people who have no idea what it's like to be chronically ill. whoooo. finding the best hotel price is now a safe bet. because tripadvisor searches over 200 booking sites -

welcome back. tonight president trump preparing for likely the piggest meeting so far of his presidency. face to face with vladimir putin at this week's g-20 summit, they are expected to talk about syria and ukraine. one issue there's little expectation they'll discuss, you probably guessed it. russia's interference in the u.s. election. but trump himself has even seemed confused about whether or not they've crossed paths before. >> do you have a relationship with vladimir putin? >> i do have a relationship. i have no relationship with putin. i was in moscow recently, and i spoke indirectly and directly with president putin. i have nothing to do with spoken. i got to know him very well because we were both on 60 minutes. i don't know putin. >> michelle, what is the state department saying tonight about this meeting? >> reporter: even just to see
4:33 pm
the handshake will be interesting. the state department is saying little. late last week when we asked if they expected the president to raise this issue and does the secretary want him to, the state department could only say they didn't know. the white house is saying they're working on setting the agenda and deciding what kind of meeting this will be, how formal it will be. it's obvious they don't want to say much at this point. the pressure is on. the entire world is going to be watching to see how the president of the united states responds to the fact that not very long ago vladimir putin himself according to the unanimous opinion of u.s. intelligence agencies, launghch an attack on american democracy itself. and it's president trump himself who has at times cast doubt on the assessment or diminished it. it wasn't long ago, it was may we saw the pictures in the oval
4:34 pm
office of him with the russian foreign minister and ambassador laughing and looking like they were friends. those were the pictures the white house didn't want to get out there. it's very possible the white house does not want this to come up. many times we've heard trump and his administration accuse the press and opponents of trying to delegitimize his presidency by even talking about this. but you can't have it both ways. just a week ago we heard him and his administration attacking president obama and his administration for not doing enough to punish russia for this. but so far this administration has not answered the question what do they intend to do to punish russia for this, kate? >> great to see you, michelle. thank you so much. out front now, karen bass of california, she sits on the house of foreign affairs committee. thank you for coming in. >> thank you for having me on. >> what are you expecting in the meeting between the president and putin. >> it's tough to know what to
4:35 pm
expect. but i'm concerned mcmasters says that there basically isn't going to be an agenda. we all know the trump without an agenda, trump without talking points can be dangerous, because you never know exactly what he's going to bring up. but i don't see how he could have any credibility at all to talk about russians' intervention in syria or the ukraine without talking about russian intervention in the united states. >> if you're concerned that he goes in without an agenda, do you think president trump should be meeting with putin at all? >> well, i think absolutely he should be meeting with him. he should be meeting with him, and he should be raising the fact that they intervened in our election. we're just a little over a year away from another election. our midterm elections, and i think that we need to be very clear with the russians that they cannot intervene again, and he needs to make that point in a very strong manner. without an agenda, who knows what he'll talk about.
4:36 pm
>> president trump has been reluctant to speak out against the russian cyber attack. listen to this. >> could have been china. could have been a lot of groups. it could somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds. i think the democrats are putting it out because they suffered one of the greatest defeats in the history of politics in this country. >> with that in mind, if, if it does come up, do you trust the president to hold putin's feet to the fire on this? >> 17 intelligence agencies have said that the russians interfeened. as far as i'm concerned, he's still in denial about it. i wouldn't be surprised when he meets with putin if he doesn't do what he's done with so many other international leaders which is talk about how many votes he got, talk about how many people attended the inauguration. i mean, this is really embarrassing. i just hope that he goes to the g-20 in general and be prepared. it's actually an opportunity where he could make an
4:37 pm
incredibly positive impression on the world stage, but i don't know that he will actually have it together to do that. but i know we'll know. when the meeting is over, if he leaves the meeting, and he is essentially repeating putin's talking points, and if he concedes and gives back the compounds, then we will know. we will know whether or not putin once again played president trump. >> that gets a lot to the sanctions bill that is now waiting to be voted on in the house of representatives. one of your fellow democrats, jamie ras kin was on this show last week. he was calling for a commission to determine if the president is mentally or physically unfit for office. do you agree with your fellow democrat on this? >> i'm not aware of the commission, but i actually raised those questions more than a year ago in the middle of the campaign. because -- and i think it's very frightening to say, but if any of the viewers want to google narcissistic personalty
4:38 pm
disorder, i'm concerned about his fitness to be the president. >> if you think the president has gone too far in what he's done, is this not going too far on the part of democrats saying he has a mental ill snns. >> well, you know that there are thousands of psychiatrists and psychologists that are raising concerns. i do think that our focus needs to be on the investigations that are going on. we need to get at the truth of whether or not the russians were ivolved. but there's so many issues with this president. be it the conflict of interest, the emoluments, the fact that he essentially lies pathologically, and you know that. i mean, you just showed it by the clips that you did about whether or not he's met putin. you never know whether he is going to tell the truth. you don't know what the truth is, and you don't know if he knows what the truth this. >> let's see what comes out of this meeting with president putin of russia. thank you for coming in. >> thank you for having me. republicans trying to

edition of out front. new tonight republican leadership appears to be at odds with president trump on how to repeal and replace obama care. we're learning that repealing first and replacing later is not on the table for republican leadership. this after trump as well as some conservative senators signalled support for that very path forward. and this is sure to only increase pressure on republicans especially for one senator who could break the bill. >> reporter: what worries you most about what could happen to your situation? >> death, honestly. >> reporter: with the help of her mother, 29-year-old jenny stiles walks into a las vegas phone bank and starts dialing numbers, drumming up pressure on lawmakers to vote down the senate republican health care bill. >> i'm calling because we need your help to stop the american health care act. my life is being threatened by a bunch of people who have no idea what it's like to be chronically ill. they just don't. >> reporter: stiles was born
