"send her back."
1:01 pm
>> the president has gichen a couple of different reactions from that chant from claiming to have barely heard the crowd to saying he disagreed with them. earlier today he tweeted a re-play of the chants and his words, as you can see, i did nothing to lead people on nor was i particularly happy with their chant. just a very big and patriotic crowd. they love the usa. a patriotic crowd? chanting "send her back" about an elected member of the u.s. congress? there was also this remark from the president about omar and three other progressive freshmen democrats. >> i don't know if it's good or bad politically. i don't care, but when people are speaking so badly and they call our country garbage, think of that. that's worse than deplorable. well, they call our country "garbage qwe "garbage" i don't care about politics. i don't care it's good or bad
1:02 pm
politics. >> none of the women have called this country or the american people garbage. what he was likely referring to this quote fromm alexandra ocaso cortez. >> i think all these things sound radical compared to where we are, but where we are is not a good thing. this idea of 10% better from garbage shouldn't be what we settle for. today ocasio-cortez spoke out about the president's rhetoric at a town hall. >> once you start telling american sicitizens to, quote, back to your countries this tells you that the president is about race ump. he's been keeping it in here and this week it went out here. when he started telling american citizens, where are we going to go? we're going to stay right here. that's where we're going to go. we're not going anywhere.
1:03 pm
>> white house correspondent, boris sanchez is not far from where the president is spending the weekend. president trump's new position as of today is that the people chanting "send her back" were part of a patriotic crowd. have there been changes since this morning? >> not yet, ana. the president wants this both ways. just a couple of days ago the president indicated that he tried to cut off these supporters and respond quickly when they started chanting "send her back" at this rally they were holding at north carolina and the video proves otherwise. now the president after having heard from sources inside the white house telling us that they've spoken to the president saying that this political battle could end poorly, the president now re-engaging saying that these supporters are actually great patriots and in that re-tweet, we should point out, he's re-tweeting somebody who is actually praising these
1:04 pm
chants saying that "send her back" is the new lock her up, taking us back to 2016 and the chant against hillary clinton. the president here clearly wants to make these democrats appear extreme and to make them the face of the democratic party going into 2020, ana. >> boris sanchez, thank you. reporter for "the washington post," and the chicago sun-times. the president doesn't know if he's attacks are good for him politically and he says he's not focused on the politics of it. do you buy that? >> well, it's just not true. he did do this for political reasons. my colleagues at post have a great piece out today kind of breaking down the tick-tock of these last few days in the white house and the president told his advisers the reason he jumped in to this inner-party fight, we have to remember, before the president's racist tweets this was a fight between nancy pelosi and some of her moderates and some of these new young freshmen congresswomen. he jumped in because he thought
1:05 pm
it would be a good thing politically to further elevate these young women as the face of the democratic party. he clearly did it for political reasons. it's not surprising that he's been on every side of these issues. he is someone that's very reactive to the cable news coverage and so when there was coverage and outrage, he was reactive to that and all of a sudden when there was coverage of walking back those statements the president doesn't like those either. clearly, this was a political move. whether or not this was a shrewd move or something that would undermine him, i think we all have to wait and see and it is unclear. there have been times when these clearly racist and racially incendiary political plays from the president have helped stoke his entire support and there are other times in the midterm elections where it didn't help and the caravan had closing arguments and the democrats swept into power and the house after that. >> lynn's let's not forget the president himself has been critical of the country.
1:06 pm
here are just a few of the examples. >> how stupid is our country? >> we are so far behind the time, and by the way, the world is laughing at us because they can't believe these policies. >> how stupid are the people of iowa? how stupid are the people of the country? >> putin's a killer. >> a lot of killers. we have a lot of killers. what? you think our country is so innocent? >> he keeps saying these women hate the country and that's why he's on the attack against them. we just showed you he's been very critical of what's happening in the country. he can do it, but others can't? >> don't look for consistency. yes, he's a hypocrite on this issue, and the real damage that he's doing here is that he is not really walking it back, and i don't think we should be kidding ourselves just because he says some words and his lips were moving. he still was sending a signal, a dog whistle. if you put it together between what he said and unsaid again and the tweets there is really no real reason to believe that
1:07 pm
he's not letting his supporters who want to chant a send her back chant that they wouldn't do it again. nothing he has done since then shows you that he firmly wants to tell his followers this is wrong. this is not so. no one gets sent back, and the criticism that you just showed in those clips that he is allowed to be critical and no one is to send him back to scotland where his mother is from is just something they hope that the next person who interviews him asks, you were critical of the united states, mr. president. should you have gone to scotland? >> well, he was asked about his double standard. our abby philip asked him essentially the same question i asked. let's listen. >> why is it okay for you to criticize america, but not democrats? >> i believe all people are great people. i believe everyone is great, but i love our country. >> all people are great people,
1:08 pm
but he doesn't seem to feel that way about these four democratic women of color. wes? >> sure. i think when you understand the president's comments and the context of american history and the way that these types of -- not just chant, but this precise argument that if people of color aren't grateful for being here and if they're not glad that you got to come to america, that we're letting you in now and you have these rights then you should go somewhere else. it speaks to this historical grapple over who gets to be an american, who has full citizenship and you have to remember we're a nation where it's been 50 or 60 votes would even get to vote in our election or people like you get to vote in our elections. this isn't a country that has fully enfranchised all its people and that for generations there has been an ideology that says people who are different, and people who aren't white should just be grateful to be here and they shouldn't complain. they shouldn't complain about the police shooting them. they shouldn't complain about the lynchings and the lack of
1:09 pm
education and if they do do that they don't love america and they should go. and so, do i think the president who certainly is no scholar of american history is sitting here thinking about all of this, no, but his reaction to these women. these outspoken women who have been critical of the country, but who serve their country as elected officials is the same response that outspoken people of color have always gotten in this country when they have the audacity that things here are unfair or things here should be better. >> conservative radio host rush limbaugh offered his take on all of this. let's listen. >> yet some people at a trump rally make some innocent chant borne of fun and washington comes to a halt, oh, my god! oh, my god! it's nothing. that's why i hope omar keeps talking. i hope alexandra ocasio-cortez, i hope they keep talking and i hope that trump continues to succeed in making all of these people the face of the democrat party.
1:10 pm
that would be great. >> lynn, does limbaugh's opinion represent the majority of trump's supporters and how they feel about it, do you think? >> i'm not sure if he represents the majority of trump supporters, but certainly he speaks for his following and his following is part of the trump base because they want to hear the kinds of things that they're saying. but again, everybody see through it. tick it f take it for what it is. the wicked face of the democrat party was nancy pelosi and it was days gone by when you would say nancy pelosi, san francisco liberal. they are finding people to dem going. in the analysis, rush limbaugh thought he was minimizing it, but it's don't be fooled. he was doing the opposite. he was calling attention to it and condoning it. it wasn't just a little fun. it was -- it's political. he knows it, and he is letting his listeners know that all this
1:11 pm
is okay. >> lynn sweet, wes lowery, good to have you both with us. thank you. >> and thank you 37. 50 years since one giant leap. coming up, the nation remembers the moment we all came together to watch man land on the moon. here's how the mission is captured in the award-winning new kcnn film "apollo 11" airin tonight. >> turn back right. >> okay.

1:16 pm
how amazing that it has been 50 years since the whole world held its breath as neil armstrong, buzz aldrin and michael collins made history with apollo 11, and today the johnson space center in houston is commemorating that one small step that was actually millions of intricate steps orchestrated by thousands of people to pull off a successful moon landing and a successful return to planet earth. there are exhibit, music and notable speakers, but the marquee event is a live, interactive countdown to 9:56 p.m. central time, the exact moment that neil armstrong's boots first touched the lunar surface. cnn's rachel crane is our business innovation and space correspondent and you're at that space center and it is so interesting to me that a lot of the people there today probably
1:17 pm
weren't even born when we landed on the moon? why do you think this moment is so significant no matter your age? >> reporter: ana, i want to point out it is 17 minutes past the hour and this is the exact moment that 50 years ago neil armstrong and buzz aldrin were making that harrowing landing on the moon in the eagle, nearly running out of fuel. their computers were having all kind of alarms and so it was that moment 50 years ago that that landing occurred and here at the johnson space center in the viewing room of the saturn 5, it's filled with young people, people who like myself were not alive when we made that landing, when neil and buzz took those first steps. i think it speaks to the fact that this journey, it stands the test of time and it still remains to be the most ambitious and inspiring journey that mankind had ever made. we had a chance to speak to some of the people in the room and take a listen to what they had to say. >> because i feel this is an important day to celebrate.
1:18 pm
not every day you come to celebrate the man landing on the moon, and i think this is very exciting and i am so happy that they are doing this and that they are doing this for people so they know what nasa has been doing since 1969. >> this is just amazing. it's just -- we have to -- we have more technology in our cell phones than what that huge rocket had and look at the size of it and we have more technology now and to have something like that into space and landing a man on the moon is a beg deal. >> reporter: if all goes to plan, nasa hopes to put boots again on the moon in 2024. so hopefully, people like myself who were not part of the apollo generation, weal be the artemis generation and nasa hopes not just to put a man on the moon, and they also hope to put a woman on the moon and hopefully that will inspire young women
1:19 pm
all around the globe to reach for the stars. >> not only to put them on the moon, but to make it so man or a woman can stay on the moon. that is part of this next goal. rachel crane. thank you for that report. you can relive all of the moment of that incredible mission by tuning in tonight for the cnn film apollo 11 at 9:00 eastern on cnn. coming up, 150 million americans across 30 states sweating it out amid what's become a deadly heat wave. a look at the impact of the triple digit temperatures next. let's see, aleve is proven better on pain than tylenol extra strength. and last longer with fewer pills. so why am i still thinking about this? i'll take aleve. aleve. proven better on pain. and i don't add trup the years.s. but what i do count on... is boost® delicious boost® high protein nutritional drink has 20 grams of protein, along with 26 essential vitamins and minerals. boost® high protein. be up for life.

today's excessive heat warming there. let's get to louisville, kentucky, also under an excessive heat advisory today. i want to bring in louisville's mayor, greg fisher. we just checked. it's 95. feels like 105 degrees. i know you just had a press conference. what's your message to residents? >> ana, i can confirm it is very hot here in louisville and we've been communicating that. so much of it is just these basic messages that we want to tell people about stay hydrated, remember your loved ones or your elderly folks and check in with them and if they don't have air-conditioning, be hospitable, southern hospitality and tell them to come over and stay at your place. the challenge is this is the second day of three days when we were looking at heat index of 105 or so. it's pretty tough outside, but so far we're in good shape. >> i'm glad to hear that. i know you have spearheaded the louisville island project, and what is louisville helping

residents in this bruths heat wave. >> community centers are open where people can keep cool and passing out water and the spray grounds are open having open swims so people can just get out and stay cool if they want to get out. we encourage people to stayen side. it will cool off this evening and we'll have another hot day tomorrow and then get into the 80s on monday. we've had about a 30% increase in our 911 heat-related calls, so things are happening here and people are being affected, but i feel good about how we're communicating about it and the main thing is take care of each other and that's what we're supposed to be doing every day. >> unfortunately, places are having power outages, places like michigan and they've set their thermostats to 78 degrees as a precaution. animal care takers at zoos around the country are using extra ice to keep the animals safe and healthy. what's your biggest concern? >> well, just that people forget
1:26 pm
and do silly things. they leave a car and have a kid in the back or an animal in the back that they forget about. why do you keep saying the same things over and over. that's how accidents happen, right? when people do things that they didn't mean to do, and that's going on and we take this as an opportunity to talk about climate change and the need to forest your communities more and the need to decarbonize your cities more and you're capturing the lunar, on we want to keep as much of an merge as we did the carbon soss ietsy and that would put our man on the moon with the heat waves that we're having for the future. >> you've lived there and you can't remember weather this hot, is that right? >> heat and humidity is not unusual, but to have a three-day stretch of it is tough and when
1:27 pm
you take a look at the last couple of decades compared to the decades before that we are having a dozen additional heat days like this. so clearly, things are happening in our city so we've got to be prepared to be hotter and not just right now, but in the future, as well. >> mayor greg fischer, thank you and stay safe. an international murder mystery. a woman sets off and the investigation into what happened. this is his family, the world he's built, for 72 years. ♪ this is hal's heart. it's been torn. broken. and put back together.

1:32 pm
extreme north of the province, but so far there are few clues into what happened and why. i want to bring in cnn national correspondent natasha chen. natasha, what are you learning about this couple and the investigation into how they were killed? >> reporter: ana lucas fowler was the australian living in british columbia at this time working on a ranch when his girlfriend, chynna deese from north carolina came to visit him and the two of them were found on the morning of july 15th on the side of alaska highway toward the north part of british columbia in a blue 1986 chevrolet van with alberta plates was on the scene. our affiliate spoke with deese's mother and the station reported that the couple was found shot to death, but i checked with the royal canadian mounted police this afternoon and rcmp says they're not releasing the specifics of how these two were killed and they're also not
1:33 pm
specifying exactly on scene where they were found, whether they were inside or outside the van. now they do say that the double homicide happened some time between sunday evening and monday morning. deese's mother told wsoc that her daughters was going to travel with fowler throughout that part of canada. they were going to visit national parks and had mapped out their route. she says that the two of them, it was a love story. they had the same personality and that's what she's holding on to. she believes that the van might have broken down when this tragedy happened. >> this is what makes me really happy. their story is just something you would read in a novel. they had plans for the future. i mean, they were meant to be. she loved him so much. >> and fowler's family in australia released a statement as well. they say we have lost our dear lucas fowler, son, brother,
1:34 pm
grandson and friend in the most terrible of circumstances. to lose someone so young and vibrant who was traveling the world and just enjoying life to the full is devastating. to know his beautiful girlfriend chynna deese of charlotte, north carolina, also lost her life in this violent end is too cruel. all our love and best wishes go to chynna's family and friends and we are all traveling to canada to be with our boy and to bring him home. fowler's father is the chief inspector of the new south wales police force and they'll have members of that police force as well and they are there to support fowler's family and not to participate in this investigation, however rcmp is working with the fbi here in the united states. they have to figure out whether these two people were driving that van at the time. they are still also investigating whether they were targeted or whether this was a crime of opportunity, ana. >> what a mystery, natasha chen, thank you. up next, what do voters who

there are 472 days until the next presidential election and the nation is in a very different place than in 2016. cnn's randi kaye traveled to the swing state of wisconsin which went with trump last time by just a slim margin. she talked to a pair of 2016 trump voters who are now very much at odds. wisconsin voter dave svarobic voted for fructrump and now he regrets it. >> are you planning to support trump again? >> absolutely not. i don't want to have another four years of embarrassment going on. >> what we've seen this past week is another example of that. >> that tweet that everyone is

talking about. i would not define that as a racist tweet, but it is a hatred tweet for sure. >> his co-worker at this au claire, she sees it differently. if you don't like this country, get out. leave. that's all he said. he didn't use any names. they stood up and so that's all they did. they made themselves look like idiots. >> unlike her co-worker dave, kerry has no regrets about voting for trump. >> he takes no crap from anybody and that's why i love him. he's followed through on promises that he made to the american people. >> like what? give me one. >> taxes, he's working on the border. we're back in charge again. we're not taking gov. i mean, he is working with north korea like no other president ever has in the world before. >> unlike kerry, really regrets his vote. >> i didn't know he was going to
1:41 pm
act this way. so i am embarrassed by him. >> what don't you like about the president? >> he doesn't act like a president should, in my eyes. he, in a way, i think spreads hatred. he's like a little kid having a temper tantrum the way he talks about -- blah, blah, blah, whatever he says it comes across to me it's childish. >> he says trump should start taking credit for things like the economy. >> you don't think he's been good for business? >> i can't say. he alone is the reason why everything is booming at this time. it didn't happen as soon as he took office. it was already starting to improve. >> kerry sees it differently. >> i have thought this country needs to be run like a business. it was ran into the ground for eight years and it's time to bring it back and he's done it. >> kerry also thinks trump is right to build a wall and limit immigration. dave argues this country needs immigrants. >> dairy products would be so much more expensive, vegetables
1:42 pm
that are grown around here, anywhere in the united states, everything would be much more expensive if it wasn't for the immigrants. >> but he ran on that pretty much when you voted for him in 2016, right? >> once again, i thought he was a better option than hillary. >> so it wasn't necessarily a vote for trump in 2016. it was a vote against hillary clinton. >> exactly. >> is there anything that trump can do that would change your mind or you are dug in? >> i am dug in. i am behind him 100%. >> you are on the trump train. >> i am on the front car with him pulling the whistle. >> that was randi kaye reporting. >> coming up, is russia up to some old tricks? the new wrinkle about a viral app that makes you look old and a warning about how it may give moscow information you don't want it to have.
