4:00 pm
what does that do. >> it's awful. it's awful. now, the next day they go to work and do the best they can. that, you know that's really hard. >> don's full interview with general hayden later tonight, 10:00 p.m. eastern. erin burnett outfront starts right now. outfront next turmoil joe biden trying to recover from the damning exchange with kamala harris. what does the former vice president the seep yerp campaign adviser is outfront. plus a presidential candidate says he wants to give you a thousand dollars a month no strings attached. how does that plan add up? andrew yang is outfront. and president trump about to sit down with the crown prince of saudi arabia. after joking with vladimir putin about not meddling in u.s. elections. let's go outfront. and good evening, i'm erin burnett, outfront tonight biden on his he is heels, the former vice president struggling to stlan why he opposed federally
4:01 pm
mandated busing as a way to integrate public schools. senator kamala harris exposing biden's record on this charged issue in an unforgettable exchange last night today biden claims he heard harris but -- >> i heard and i listened toen arespect senator harris. but you know we all know that 30 seconds to 60 seconds on a campaign debate exchange can't do justice to a lifetime committed to civil rights. i want to be absolutely clear about my record and position on racial justice, including busing. i never, never, never, ever opposed voluntary bussing. >> never opposed. nasa sfrong and definitive response from the former vice president. but biden was not as clear and concise last night instead trying to parse words. >> do you agree today that you were wrong to oppose busing in
4:02 pm
america then. >> no. >> do you agree. >> i did not oppose put busing in america. what i opposed is busing ordered by the department of education. that's what i opposed. i did not oppose. >> it's a failure of states to integrate public schools in america. i was part of the second class to integrate berkeley, california, public schools almost two decades after brown v. board of education. >> because your city council made the edition. >> the federal must step. >> the framing must step in with the civil rights act. >> biden says he didn't oppose busing just busing ordered by the department of education. but listen to what joe biden said on this very day 42 years ago, this very day 42 years ago, the year 1977. >> i happen to think that the one way to ensure that you set the civil rights movement in america further back is to continue to push busing. because it's a bankrupt policy. >> a bankrupt policy. and he went further during an
4:03 pm
interview in 1975 saying i oppose busing. it's an asinine concept. the utility of which has never been proven to me. the new substitution plans are just quota systems to ensure a certain number of blacks chicanos in each school that's the most racist concept. a as nine concept biden opposed busing it's hard to spin any other way. but harris believes she is on the stage in part because she was busted to school. >> there was a little girl in california who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools. and she was busted to school every day. and that little girl was me. >> now today harris was asked if she thinks this is a disqualifying thing for joe biden. her answer, quote, that's for the people to decide. jeff and zeleny outfront live in "wealthtrack" tonight. jeff, did biden hurt his front
4:04 pm
runner status last night. >> there is no question he didn't advance it. he didn't show he has command of this race. his whole argument since he jumped in you know about two months ago is that the best democrat equipped to defeat president trump. well many democrats even some of his own advisers did not see that joe biden on stage last evening. so even he i'm told is aware that he did not perform as strong as he needs to. he told an adviser i need to do better. the reality is though erin, it's a different democratic party than at any other moment he has been on a debate stage. and just watching him being in miami as i was watching him at the debate it did not seem that he was ready for that moment. and the question is, is he the nominee for this moment in the democratic party? i think sort of stepping back after all of these hours of debating, the question here is, is he the -- you know, sort of man of the times? and he did not advance the argument that he was. but senator harris for all of her spotlight on this matter,
4:05 pm
she had some issues as well particularly on medicare for all. she said that she would like to abolish private health insurance and then she walked that wak. i think at the end of the day you can't make a judgment on one debate. with the advisers i talked to in the biden campaign say he must do a better job in the second debate. i'm told he is spend gd much more time out campaigning on the road. he has been fund raising most of the time here. but all of the month of july he will be campaigning more. we'll soo he if he performs better at the next debate on cnn at the end of the month. >> jeff, thank you. outfront now biden campaign senior adviser symone sanders. both kamala harris. was surprised by biden's answer. >> i was surprised to hear how he described in defense of his position his perspective on the role ofs federal government. >> african-americans in this
4:06 pm
country in many other groups had to turn to the federal government to intervene because there were states that violated the rights. there were states and state policies that were driving these deep divisions in our country. so that struck me -- i literally leaned back in my couch and couldn't believe that one moment. >> you heard what senator booker said he literally leaned back in the couch. symone were you surprised by how biden handle that moment on stanl. >> that's why the vice president spoke about this at length at the rainbow push coal iks labor lurjen today. frankly 30 seconds is not enough time with ten people on the debate stanl to articulate one ace history and commitment to the civil rights community and all of you know the work that vice president biden has done. so what i will say is this if there is a question about whether vice president bide believes that the federal government has a role in protecting civil rights for all americans, constitutional rights, let me clear that up for
4:07 pm
folks. he does believe that. he has fought vigorously for that throughout his career. whether the voting rights act. he vigorously fought for integration. fought against mandated segregation. and so i really believe that the conservation voters want to have is the types of things folks plan to do if elected president. >> you raise about fair point and 60 seconds and so many on stage. that's fair. but i want to understand, symone because on this very day total coincide. it was on this day th years he said joe biden said this about busing. >> i happen to think the one way to ensure you set the civil rights movement in america further back is to continue to push busing it's a bankrupt policy. >> how does it make you feel to watch that? >> erin, this is what i'll say. i think at the time that the conversation around busing was really at its peak in america
4:08 pm
there were a number of folks have varied views. . but there was -- there were a camp of people that believed that busing was not a catch y'all to cure the ills and issues that came along with integration. and frankly segregation. and so you have to -- there were a number of people again that believe. >> why did he say last night i never opposed busing a and i -- i was fine with volunteer busing but not federally mandated busing why not come out and say like you were saying i didn't think dws a good idea and here is why own it. >> i want to reiterate what the vice president said today at the rain woe push coalition was that. he defended his record. he said that he was never against volunteer busing which is absolutely true. let me be frank that's true. he was never against volunteer busing that is frankly the policy by which senator harris was busted in her community. it was volunteer busing. but, again, this idea that the conversation was so for lack of a better time black and white around bussing.
4:09 pm
>> i guess the word volunteer is catching people up. what -- putting aside the federal government issue as cory booker raises a significant one, federal government overalls states right to stop segregation. >> and the vice president believes -- he agrees with cory booker. if there is a question out there about whether the vice president biden believes that the federal government has a role in protecting the civil rights for all americans, that the federal government has a role in stepping him in he does believe that they do. the federal government coast. and he has fought for that again look at his work for the voting rights. on the voting rights issues. look at his work that he has done throughout the entirety of his career. i think it's very easy to have a nuanced very specific nitty-gritty conversation about busing in the 1960s and 70s. but frankly i do not believe that is what the election is about for so many american. >> announcer: as you know, there was that moment from swalwell last night trying to say joe
4:10 pm
biden has been around take a look time to move on. i want to play how biden finished up this moment with kamala harris because it's gotten a lot of attention. let me just play it. >> i agree that everybody once they -- my time is up i'm sorry -- >> so emwho have been seizing on the last part as you know my time is up senior democrat who worked for biden for years told cnn today the more damaging thing for biden was the age thing took take a look to reply and too many answers around bills he sbrused decades ago. that was the quote. is this an issue that you all can squash in the campaign or not? >> look, i think vice president did great on the debate sfanl. he communicatelanded his vision directly to the american people. folks took shots and we took a little heat but i think he did well. there are 11 more debates. okay and he will be prepared to again communicate and articulate his vision to the american people. and -- and tell them time and time again and have a conversation on that debate stage about what he would do as
4:11 pm
president and why he is the best person to take on that donald trump. again, and the last thing i want to note erin, there is somebody else up that stage last night older than vice president boyden. >> that's true. >> the idea -- the idea that this is -- that someone is quote unquote too old to play the game i don't think that's true or fair. and that flies direct will i in contrast of everything that democrats say we believe. i think we need a debate of ideas. and that folks shouldn't take personal shots. and that's the kind of campaign we're going to run. wei can't comment on what other foengs's strategy is going to be but that's our strategy and we're looking forward to engaging on the ideas in the election. >> thank you very much symone, i appreciate it. >> thank you. >>en a outfront patrick healy political editor at the "new york times." so she -- her job is to spin the situation for joe biden. what is his situation right now coming off of last night. >> he did not -- he did not have a good night. he was on the defensive the entire time, not just kamala harris but piled on and a lot of
4:12 pm
moderate democrats were looking for joe biden to be the voice of the center of the party. instead saw in kind of wobbly rusty performance, and particularly be able to articulate issues of race, civil rights, busing, for a party that is now -- is now turning so young and so diverse. and frankly not being able to either explain or really defend or frankly being willing at all to apologize to suggest that you know maybe he was wrong at the time. >> now it's this whole -- the whole voluntary thing. >> the hair splitting, you know is a little over the top. joe biden was making moral and philosophical arguments in the 1970s against busing. process. it was delaware in the 1970s. he believed voluntary- disneyland -- i understand their point. federal busing but he was against busing. he saw it ripping communities apart, that fundamentally i
4:13 pm
think even in a voluntary sense fundamentally were things that made people uncomfortable and that he believed communities should have schools. >> can he continue to have moments like this. >> yeah, he had movements like this with the hyde amendment issue. with anita hull, hugging of people. >> is there any sins more sense of mulligans for him or. >> i think the biden campaign looks at the trump campaign and sees the way that things that, you know, four, eight years ago we would have thought would be so damaging against a presidential candidate. but that don't seem to stick to them. in this case the reality is that joe biden has a democratic party that is a lot more diverse and you know awake to some of the issues. and the question is how can he -- at the point where he is can he really sustain the support he has? if he keeps making comments like this. >> thank you very much, patrick. next the exactic party veering further left. president trump already eyeing
4:14 pm
the moment, this specific moment accurate fantastic in fact for a campaign ad. >> raise your hand if the government plan providing coverage for undocumented immigrants. okay. >> plus a democratic candidate who wants to give you $1,000 a month. outfront to tell you how and why. and pete buttigieg, not shying away from talking about religion. >> the republican party likes to cloak itself in the language of religion. balanced nutrition for strength and energy! whoo-hoo! great-tasting ensure. with nine grams of protein and twenty-six vitamins and minerals. ensure, for strength and energy. and twenty-six vitamins and minerals. wireless network claims are america's most reliable network. the nation's largest and most reliable network. the best network is even better? best, fastest, best. enough. sprint's doing things differently. they're offering a new 100% total satisfaction guarantee.

4:17 pm
you know those butterflies aren't actually in the room? hey, that baker lady's on tv again. she's not a baker. she wears that apron to sell insurance. nobody knows why. she's the progressive insurance lady. they cover pets if your owner gets into a car accident. covers us with what? you got me. [ scoffs ] she's an insurance lady. and i suppose this baker sells insurance, too? progressive protects your pets like you do. you can see "the secret life of pets 2" only in theaters. "the secret life of pets 2" ohone day you'll tell yourse grandkids about it. and they'll say, "grandpa just tell us about humpty dumpty". and you'll say, "he broke his pelvis or whatever, now back to my creamy heinz mayonnaise". heinz mayonnaise,
4:18 pm
unforgettably creamy. tonight a lerch to the left. all ten democrats on the debate stage making this promise. >> raise your hand if your government plan would provide coverage for undocumented immigrants. [ applause ] >> okay. >> president trump already seizing the moment tweeting from the g-20 in japan, how about taking care of american citizens first. that's the end of race. outfront now howard dean former exactic governor of vermont. and scott jennings, special assist to george w. bush. governor dean, trump says it's the end of the race. senior white house official adds it may become a trump campaign ad. i think they're being uncharacteristically soft about this. it's definitely a campaign ad. are democrats giving trump a win on this one?
4:19 pm
>> no, we've been doing this for 30 years. undocumented people have always been able to go to emergency rooms if they are sick. you may not turn someone away from an emergency room no matter the circumstances. and they don't get turned away. and furthermore the idea that the democratic party is lunching left is non-is sen. we just won 40 in seats in the house. 35y in pleases like oklahoma and texas, central pennsylvania and kansas. this is the fact is that we are going to be fine on this. i'm not the least bit worried about tp i'm more concerned about it where we are on health care. >> sohn oh that issue, it's interesting you make the point, look it's being provided and provided in the most expensive way it could which is emergency room care. >> right. >> scott, pete buttigieg gave another explanation about why providing health care to immigrants -- people who are here illegal would be okay. here he is. >> now, remember we are talking about something people given a
4:20 pm
chance to buy into process. . in the same way there are undocumented immigrants in my community who pay -- they pay sales taxes, property taxes directly or indirectly. this is not about a handout. >> doesn't he have a point, scott? >> no, he does not have a point. look this is how it's going to play out in the campaign. donald trump is going to say the democratic nominee -- and by the way doesn't matter who it is because they have all pledged to do this. they are raising taxes to pay for a massive expanded federal health care program that pays for a better health care plan for illegal immigrants than you get on your private plan. there are millions of american in the suburbs where maybe frankly donald trump has some political problems that have seen preemie yums go. seen deductible go upn a the from quality of plans go down. and donald trump gives them a simple line do you want taxes togts up to give illegal immigrants a free health care when yours is worse and
4:21 pm
democratss are on a bubble on in. >> it would be cheaper to do this which than through the molden room as government dean points out i understand how. >> cheaper for the -- i mean right now people believe themaker plans are getting worse, did he ductables are going up premiums are going pup up fan democrats plan to raise taxes on top of that. i don't think -- if you are talking about a voter to voter basis, the trump campaign has a clear winner here. this is poll terribly for whoever the exactic nominee is. >> thn on this issue governor kamala harris struggled to give a straight answer on private insurance. as part of this conversation of single payer or medicare for all it's become a key thing. are people allowed to keep insurance if they like it or not? more than 100 million americans have insurance plans through employers. spo would she get rid of it or not here is what she said last night at the debate. >> who here would abolish their private health insurance in favor of a government run plan?
4:22 pm
>> all right. [ cheers and applause ] she raised her hand raised it firmly she was certain but this morning she says she misheard the question here she is, governor. >> once and for all do you believe that private insurance should be eliminated in this country? >> no. >> you don't zmo. >> no i do not. >> you raised your hand. >> the question was would you give up your private insurance for that option? and i said yes. >> you heard it differently than others then. >> probably. >> governor what do you make of this, 74% of american would allow people to keep the coverage they have if they want. that's the latest poll. how big of a problem is harris ace inconsistenty on this. >> first of all let me briefly address what scott said. scott gave the republican talking points. process the problem is the republicans have no credibility on health care what so far. that's why we picked up 40 seats for the most part. on this one harris -- i heard the question the same way harris did. and i do believe that whoever the democratic nominee is going to be -- and most people will do
4:23 pm
it bernie won't if he is the nominee has to walk it back. you cannot -- you must give people choices. you cannot have government decree saying you are taking away insurance. that was the mistake with the individual mandate. when we did universal health insurance for everybody under 18 we did not do a mandate. and it cost us 1% instead of 99% of kids we had 97 or 8% of kids under 18. it's not worth doing the mandate. americans hate to be told what to do. so harris's position as articulated today is the position i think the democratic nominee is going to have to take whether they like it or not. in fact you have to give american voters christs. you can't tell them what to do. >> look and that's i guess something we all know, right. one o i want to ask you about something else that happened today. the former president jimmy carter scott had something interesting to say about president trump on the 2016 election. pretty stunning and specific here he is. >> there is no doubt that the russians did interfere in the
4:24 pm
elections. and i think they the interference is not yet quantified if fully investigated would though show that donald trump win the election in 2016. he lost the election. and he was put in office because the russians interfered. on his behalf. >> so do you believe president trump is an illegitimate president? >> based on what i just said which i can't retract. >> a former president of the united states just said donald trump is illegitimate. your reaction, scott? >> yeah be i think it's pretty poor form for a former president to go that far with a current occupant of the white house what is it with democrats in georgia right now people win elections and democrats go around saying they didn't win, illegitimate. i think jimmy carter is welcome to his opinion but that doesn't make it true. i grow with him there was russian interference in the election. we have known that a long time. but there has never been one shred of evidence that it changed the outcome of the election. donald trump won the electoral
4:25 pm
college fair and square. democrats get another shot next year. >> certainly we have not seen any evidence or anything out there by the intelligence community that swakted the vote count was affected, governor. did president carter go too far? >> well, i didn't say anything about the vote count. what i think courter was saying was the propaganda put out and aimed by the russians at a large number of various it interest rates groups to either express or increase the vote for those who were particularly angry may have had an effect. i think carter is entitled to his opinion. and as far as the georgia election goes, i think that's a lot clearer. brayen kemp was the secretary of state. des enfranchised 750,000 people. a lot of the people were african-american. i think sfacy abrahams did win that election for sure. >> we'll leave it there thank you both very much. and next, it's the corner stone of his campaign to boost the economy. >> i would pass a $1,000 freedom dividend for every american adult starting at age 18. >> 2020 contender andrew yang is

4:30 pm
tonight, free money for every american adult for every month, no strings attached. it's the corner stone of exact andrew yang's campaign for 2020. and at last night's debate yang vowed it would be the first priority of his presidency. >> i would pass a $1,000 freedom dividend for every american adult starting at age 18. >> and andrew yang is now outfront. mr. yang, i appreciate your time tonight. so you're talking about giving $12,000 a year to every american adult. why do you think this is a good idea? >> well, first you have to reflect on the fact that we're in the midst of the greatest economic transformation in the history of our country. the fourth industrial revolution. we've eliminated 4 million manufacturing jobs and now doing the same to millions of retail call center, fast food and truck driving jobs. when you have a transition this large it requires solutions like a freedom dividend of $1,000 a
4:31 pm
month which would help millions of americans transition more effectively. >> so you're proposing as part of in, though, making people choose. right so you're saying you can't get as the 12,000 a year and get something like food stamps or welfare. so my question, know is what happens when somebody chooses the cash, spends it poorly, and then needs government assistance for basic needs. >> well, the great things is then if if they make poor decisions in a particular month they get the thousand dollars the following month and this is a thousand dollars per adult. so if you had a family that might have two adults in it, for example, you know you'd have a couple of dividends to choose from. it could be the pun one person opts into the dividend and one person keeps benefits. >> there was a recent study which i know you are familiar with but let me share with the view are there was a guaranteed income program in finland found getting cash made people happier but people were less likely to
4:32 pm
find work and the control group mo didn't receive the payments. you're a entrepreneur, former tech executive why counsel giving people cash with no strings attached won't make people less motivated to work and us that hurt your productive tax base and the growth you need there? >> well, if you look at the finland trial data, you saw better health, better mental health, better relationships, more trust in government and society. and you wouldn't expect to see elevated work levels because you are only giving money to a handful of people. if you give a thousand-dollar a month into the everyone's hands and trickle up economy. it creates more than 2 million jobs in the economies. that's when you expect to see work levels rise. you wouldn't expect it if you gave an handful of unemployed people cash benefits. >> and do you income test that actually in you pay for it in various way that is would affect the weltier you eliminate the cap on social security among other things, right, so -- you would make this progressive.
4:33 pm
but is this a cap on -- on income somehow on the people who receive it? >> no, there is no means testing. jeff bezos can have it if he wants. this is based on the experience in alaska where everyone in alaska regardless of income gets between $1,000 and $2,000 from a petroleum dividend. and if everyone receives it, then it's universal it's a right of citizenship. there is no stigma. there is no trying to keep track of who makes what or if there is a change in circumstances. and it makes it politically universally appealing. >> so you have a vocal organized following mr. yang. more donors than cory book era sitting senator but obviously we didn't hear much from you at the debate your total time i know you're aware of this number, 2 minutes, 56 seconds after the debate here is what you told supporters. >> and there were a few times fyi where i started talking being like hey i'd like to add something in the mic no, no like my moderator just like ignore and doesn't matter. >> today nbc news said at no
4:34 pm
point during the debate was any candidate's microphone turned off or muted. what do you say to nbc? >> well, i shared my experience directly with my supporters and that was immediately after the event. you know there were numerous times when i had an idea or thought or statement napted to make that was directly related to what was being discussed. and my -- my mic did not function. and so i would talk. and then because other people whose mics were working would begin talking off and then the moderator i had no chance to makemy points. as you saw i was only asked two full questions in two hours. you know which was lower than any other candidate and that's why i end up with such low air time. it wasn't for lack of effort on my part because there were many times when i thought i had a lot to add to the debate. and i'm thrilled i have another opportunity in july to make my case to the american people. >> yes, obviously at the cnn debate. now i'm looking at you now. and you know, you look the which you usually look.
4:35 pm
dress the way you usually dress. not something we usually bring up except for the fact mr. yang that last night you did something that no man on a presidential debate stage has done before. i'm showing you to people seeing if they can figure out what it is. you didn't wear a tie. why? >> well, you know it's funny erin i've beencampaigning without a tie during this entire past year. and so when i was talking to my team it's like should i wear a tai to the debates then the thought was like you should just do what you are kpvl with. and this would immediately make you stand out because i'm not a career politician i'm a procure and problem solver. frpgly most frurs walking around aren't wearing a suit and two. we thought it was a more natural uniform and i'd be more comfortable. >> so before you go, i have to say i was in a mall the other day and took a picture of one of your supporters their hat you see that hat, peach pink hat says yang 2020. it made me realize realize you have a strong and devoted group
4:36 pm
of supporter yang gang. fueling your campaign with strong grass roots support. what do you think is behind the enthusiasm? >> well, i think erin i'm talking about the real problems facing the american people, the fact that amazon is closing 30% of storeses and malls and paying zero in taxes and real shugss that get people excited like a thousand-dollar dividend in the hanlds of everyone american every single month which we can completely make happen. we can afraid it. it would helps make us stronger and healthier. when people realize that this is a possibility then it makes politics actually exciting for them and relevant. and that's why i think you see so much enthusiasm among a lot of americans who sfrangly have not cared about politics historically >> thank you so much i appreciate your time. >> appreciate you erin, thank you. >> and next people buttigieg going where few of his opponents will go. challenging the religious right. plus breaking news, president trump inviting kim jong un by tweet to meet him this weekend

katlyn, the the president reiterating this message moments ago where you are. >> reporter: yes, erin, the president at breakfast with the saudi crown prince and taking questions from reporters about the tweet he sent out minutes before the breakfast for the started. he said this is an idea he had this morning to invite kim jong un to visit him at the space between north korea and south korea. and he said essentially what he is doing right now is putting out a feeler. you can see the president there taking questions from reporters. and essentially he is saying he is not even sure if kim jong un is in north korea. he is putting pout a feeler. of course, erin, based on the reporting about kim jong un's lifetime he doesn't leave north korea. he has done it very few times in the last several years. but the question is whether or not this meeting is going to happen. whether kim jong un is going to meet the president at the dmz. we know the president's aides have been working on a visit to the dmz for several weeks. but right now not going further than the president's tweets.

three, just what the president said in terms of commenting on whether or not kim is even there or where we're going to meet and the question mark in the tweet really is interesting from the standpoint of risk analysis and a lack of use of staffers to find out information before making a proclamation like this. >> in a sense he says we get along well except for kim and this deal they weren't going to do anything and nothing happened and they continued to do tests and ballistic missile test and it's as if we're sitting here laughing at this. it makes me think, you got to remember he's making something light of a guy who is a mass murderer, who starves his own people, throws people in horrific camps and yet, to the president it seems like a joke. >> well, we've seen a couple of instances of that kind of dialogue over the last two days or so. not only with kim but with saudi
