miles an hour and it managed to stay in the lane and at the end of the clip the driver appears to wake back up and put his hands on the wheel and not clear if the vehicle was on auto-pilot, but tesla warns it is no substitute for an attentive person behind the wheel. you think? ♪ ♪ it's 5:00 eastern, 2:00 in the afternoon out west. great to have you with us. i'm ana cabrera in new york, and you are live in the cnn "newsroom" and it's getting late in the south of france where even of the world's most powerful people are meeting. night one of the g7 summit and the third such meeting for president trump since he took office. we have this video of him arriving for a welcome dinner earlier this evening, but we're not expecting to have video of him leaving. instead, the white house has called a lid, meaning they will not allow any more filming tonight. this follows an impromptu lunch between the summit host french
2:01 pm
president macron which they were allowed to briefly record. lunch was the first time they met since president trump threatened to hit france with tariffs just hours earlier. >> i don't want them doing anything, having to deal with taxing unfairly our companies. those are great american companies and, frankly, i don't want france going out and taxing our companies. it's very unfair, and if they do that, we'll be taxing their wine or doing something else. we'll be taxing their wine like they've never seen before. >> a threat. kind of an interesting way to start a meeting with allies considering they could help put up a united front against china as trump burrows deep intoer a trade war with that country. president trump doesn't appear to be interested in a united front, though. in fact, sources say he didn't even want to attend the g7 summit in the first place. he thought the last two were unproductive. cnn chief white house correspondent jim acosta is traveling with the president and jim, tell us more about the president's mindset heading into the summit.
2:02 pm
>> reporter: well, an aa, i thi what the president is trying to demonstrate is he sees it as a tool and leverage to hold over the foreign leaders and we saw him do it with china earlier this week and it had rather severe consequences on the stock market in the tail end of the week and he's starting to do it with france and other members of the g7 as we saw as he was heading off to france just last night. he was essentially saying, listen, if france was going to do anything to our kinds of products we'll do the same thing to them. we'll put a tariff on french wine. that obviously unnerved people over here. donald tusk who is the president of the european council told reporters earlier today that he's worried that this trade war policy that the president has in various places around the world could lead to a global recession and some of these frayed nerves are already on display and some of these bitter disagreements on policy are on display and we will see, i think, a continuation of that as the
2:03 pm
summit goes on. the president does have an opportunity to have a sit down with the british prime minister, the new british prime minister boris johnson and that is going to take place tomorrow morning and he has the opportunity there to be meeting with who is a bit more like minded when it comes to some of these issues on the world stage, but earlier in the day, as he was meeting with the french president emanuel macron, some of that frostiness that we heard in some of these comments going back and forth that was not on display. the two looked rather chummy as they were getting along with one another and talking to reporters. the president said everybody is getting along at the g7 and that's not necessarily the case, but ana, one thing that we should make note to our viewers this evening and you were just touching on this a few moments ago. the president is at this working dinner at the g7 summit with these other world leaders and the white house pool, the small group of reporters and photographers who travel with the president everywhere he goes, they were sent home and so essentially the president is going to be going back to his
2:04 pm
hotel this evening without any kind of protective coverage as is the way it really can be described. if something were to happen to the president or happen to his motorcade on his way back to the hotel there wouldn't be any coverage of that because the pool has been sent home. it sounds like white house washington press corps jargon, but it is an important part of the coverage and when the president and white house team sends that pool home there is the potential that something could happen and it will not get covered and we'll have to rely on what they tell us at the white house to find out exactly what went on, ana? >> do we know if this dinner is still ongoing even and why this lid was called? >> reporter: we haven't got an answer as to why it was called. it may have something to do with the french government limiting a number of vehicles in each of these motorcades for the various leaders and that could be one possibility, but we haven't gotten a definitive answer on that and so, yes, this is all still ongoing and we're trying to find out exactly what happened here, but it is an
2:05 pm
unusual thing to see happen at one of these summits. typically the president is with the president everywhere he goes in some way, shape or form and the white house pool was designed so you wouldn't have a whole mob of reporters and photographers all around him. there's a select number of folks who do this to make sure that these sorts of things are covered, and typically, ana, something like a motorcade dinner trip back to the hotel we wouldn't see video of that sort of thing because it doesn't warrant coverage and it's the run of the mill type of thing that happens, but when the pool is sent home ahead of the president's departure from a major dinner it does raise eyebrows and raises a lot of questions. >> jim acosta, keep asking those questions for us, thank you. former state department negotiator aaron david miller. also, former assistant homeland security secretary and cnn national security analyst juliette kayyem. you say this summit is headed for a train wreck. why?
2:06 pm
>> that's exactly where it's headed. look at sicily in 2017, canada in 2018. three reasons. first, the president's persona. he's a guy who has a very hard time turning the "m" in me upside down so it becomes a we. there is a cooperation and flexibility. second is politics, he actually believes he may be right that his base is frankly pleased by his tendency and he gets a lot of pleasure out of this in annoying and defying his european allies and finally politics, i'm not sure there's an issue that i could identify right now. i mean, maybe gender equality which is very important to macron and it is very important to ivanka trump and presumably to the president, too, maybe there's con gruenruence there, china defending democracies and
2:07 pm
climate, just doesn't seem a whole lot of room and space for consensus. >> juliette, it's true, the president has had some awkward moments with world leaders in the past. he famously pushed president montenegro out of the way while heading to a photo-op, and then his visit to the u.n. last year and this happened, watch? >> in less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country. america's so true. [ laughter ] i didn't expect that reaction, but that's okay. >> juliette, this is a longtime business tie in. it's his third year as commander in chief. why does he struggle when dealing with other world leaders. >> first of all, thank you for the promotion, i was assistant secretary at dhs, i should make
2:08 pm
that clear. part of it is who trump is in his role and i think what you're starting to see in year through is the reaction at the g7 that they don't have to cater to him in the way they have to in year one, and they see the twitter meltdown and they see what happened to the united states stock market with the tariff issue, with china. i sort of describe it as, you know, your first year in college and you're dating the poet and he seems dark and interesting and rule breaking and then you sort of wake up a couple of months later and you realize he's just a jerk, and i think that's sort of the g7's reaction with trump at this stage and they'll try to get what they can out of trump, but at this stage toward the end of his first term they're just trying to keep things together knowing they're not going to get much movement out of the united states on the key issues out of the eu and this is a do no harm g7 rather than we'll change the word. >> i didn't realize i skipped a word when i introduced you,
2:09 pm
juliette, i'm glad you caught it. nonetheless, you have so much experience and that's why we are so grateful you are part of this conversation. aaron, cnn's sources have told us that he doesn't seem this meeting is particularly productive and he said i don't think i should go so aides managed to add the session tomorrow on the global economy so he could brag about how the u.s. is doing at these meetings. i'm just wondering, which of the meetings he's going to have, do you think, is most important? >> two, i think, two bilaterals -- well, one would certainly be productive and the je japanese have been working on trade agreements for months and there was talk in washington on friday that they were close to some sort of consensus so the meeting with shinzo abe that if a deal is announced, i think that would be significant. second is his meeting with boris
2:10 pm
johnson who obviously is looking for his support in negotiating a bilateral uk-u.s. trade agreement if, in fact, there is a hard brexit. so i think those two meetings, i think, are very important. juliette, i think raises a good point. this is really the diplomatic equivalent of the hippocratic oath which is basically do no harm. macron has so lowered expectations that for the first time in 44 years since the g7 convened in 1975 there probably will be no agreed statement or no statement at all. >> right. i mean, unfortunately, though there is harm happening to the planet right now as they are meeting. the amazon rain forest is on fire, and it's a high priority for some on these world leaders and president trump has complained in the past that the g7 spends so much time talking about the environment.
2:11 pm
juliette, do you think the way to get through to him would be to connect these fires to, say, the migration crisis? >> it might be, but the idea that donald trump used global warming or environmental issues as niche issues sort of shows his mind frame and in particular when we talk about the eu they definitely see this as potentially an exist earn threat regarding what's happening in the amazon right now, but trump has sort of undermined to the extent he can do more harm, undermined any idea that we'll get something good vis-a-vis brazil out of this and the reason why is because he's been tweeting about trade agreements with brazil. that seems to be a compliment and carrot to brazil rather than being harsh saying if you don't get your act together and start to not only stop these fire, but also stop the policies that have engendered these kinds of fires, then we won't -- then we will sort of end a lot of the sort of
2:12 pm
major south american trade deals that are going between the eu and u.s. the trump has made it clear that he does not want to do this thereby undermining the eu's ability to use a stick against brazil. the notion that you view environmental issues as niche issues at this stage in terms of where the globe is just means to hold on another year. i think the eu is thinking and see what happens in 2020 here in the united states. >> aaron, both presidents trump and macron have talked about russia perhaps being allowed back in restoring the g7. do you see a scenario where that happens? >> not here, and it shouldn't happen. not only that. the whole bet, clinton's bet on getting russia in to the g7 and make it the g8 was really a bet on a different kind of russia. the russian economy, there's nowhere near as productive as these other seven, and i don't think getting to the g8 means
2:13 pm
much frankly to putin as a symbolic sort of reward of international validation. i don't think macron and trump may have talked about this, but i think the chances of re-admission without significant concessions from putin most likely on ukraine, chances of that, ana, are slim to none. >> aaron david miller and juliette kayyem, thank you both are if being here. fighting the fires as the crisis in the amazon rain forest intensifies, leaders are blafth the president of brazil. how a high school being built in michigan will have new places for staff and students to hide. justice ruth bader ginsburg undergoing treatment for cancer again. what we just learned about her health setback. you are live in the cnn newsroom.

2:18 pm
agricultural and logging companies could exploit its natural resources. much of the world disagrees and there are protests at home and abroad. this demonstration took place in london. world leaders at the g7 summit are talking about it and u.s. presidential candidate kamala harris tweeted this. as the amazon burns, brazil's trump-like president isn't acting. trump must not seek a trade deal with brazil until bolsonaro reverses his catastrophic policies and addresses the fires. we need american leadership to save our planet. >> cnn senior international correspondent nick paton walsh is joining us now in porto velho, brazil. you told us some of these fires were deliberately set by fires who want land to graze herds. is that still happening? >> yeah, i mean, we spoke to police further down the road from where i'm standing here deeper inside what was once the
2:19 pm
thick amazon jungle before, and they said, yes, the fires they've seen on the side of the road they think were started deliberately and at night is when they see the most surge of flames and that's when people go out, it seems and start these fires. essentially, the argument about that is denied by some, but essential essentially jair bolsonaro has created an environment where people feel it's okay to do that, the deforestation and the promotion of agriculture and using the land for grazing and growing crops is better than letting it remain the lungs of the earth. the roads we've driven down here have seen destruction on the side. we saw a flash fire ourselves by one highway and you can see how quickly the dry land caught and gone in a meter of five minutes and that's the challenge that the brazilian government faces here along with, frankly, condemnation for their attitude toward it. we saw it from bals far olsonar
2:20 pm
seemed to accept the scale of the problem and suggested the outside world should kind of mind their own business and they deployed their army. you ought to be see clearly right down there during the day, an abu the smoke from the fires has made the view pretty tough all day long. we saw earlier what looked like a military airplane coming in. 43,000 troop, the government says, are on their way. where are they going to go? what precisely they can do is the enormous challenge because putting out fires, while most of the fires are in the middle of nowhere, far away from the main highways and susceptible to the high winds blowing around me here. to put them out you have to move tons of fires and logistical operation that can take weeks and many people are hoping that maybe the rain will come in and try and slow these down. we may see some of that next week, but still, this instant has focused global attention on the bolsonaro government's policies.
2:21 pm
they've been quite clear, they believe, the amazon is a resource that should be exploited and the outside world has accused them of lying and france needs to do more and serm germany is suggesting they put these fires at bay and the clock ticking on the amazon canopy here. we all need it, and since i've been talking about four football fields of that have disappeared. >> that puts it into perspective. nick paton walsh, thank you for the reporting. >> a chilling sign of the times. a high school in michigan building places to hide. details on the district spending millions to prepare for the worst. you are live in the cnn newsroom. and for a limited time. buy any samsung galaxy note 10 and get one samsung galaxy note 10 for free.

>> waelcome to the reality of going to school in america including active shooter drill, bulletproof backpacks and $48 million renovations to make it harder for a gunman to carry out a mass shooting. here's new what the new fruitport high school in michigan will look like. it will have curved hallways to break out open areas and doors that lock on demand and hidden corners for students to hide. the architect behind this usually designs prison and he said with the school he focused on strike a balance between security and a welcoming presence. i want to bring in former fbi
2:26 pm
official katherine schwide and co-authored an fbi study on mass shootings over a span of 13 years including when sandy hook happened. kathy, thank you for joining us. you studied hundreds of mass shootings. >> yes. >> including how they were carried out and how they ended, and are the design features that i just described make it one of the safest in america? >> probably so. school isn't scheduled to be finished for quite a while and it's been under construction for more than a year and it's about two hours from where i grew up in michigan. i think the changes are certainly logical and i understand what the architect was trying to design. it's sad to say that we have to do this. we need to think about this in terms of any place that we want to go to, but the architectural changes are going to -- are going to make it safer. we know from research that high school shootings generally occur -- it's the high school student who is in that school who is doing the shooting. so -- better prevention.
2:27 pm
>> and on that note -- that actually led me to this question which is, if it is a student who would be at the school already, they would have knowledge, that person would have knowledge of these different design features. so would they be as effective otherwise? >> well, you know, i know that shooters are generally from the schools themselves based on our research, but the design is too prevent a constant shooting -- shooting down a hallway, so it's curved hallways and spots where people can tuck below and get out of the way of a shooting, and even though schools in the united states are safer than they've ever been before, this is kind of a scary reality that we're just dealing with right now. people want to also feel safe where they are, and this type of construction is going to allow the students to feel safe. i will say this about the timing of the shooting. when we researched the time and the amount of time it took to do
2:28 pm
one of these types of shootings, in the shootings where we can identify the time commitments that less than five minutes occurred, 70% of them were over in five minutes or less, but 35 to 40% of them are over in two minutes or less. so having a place to duck away, a door that's locked, some place that's harder -- a harder target is a good solution in any situation whether it's a school or a business. >> is the complete overhaul of how we design public spacis realistic, though, are we missing the equivalent of adding seat belts and air bags to cars? >> i think that prevention obviously is our best hope and in reconstructing every single thing isn't possible, there are 5 million kids in the american schools today. we're not going to reconstruct their buildings and this particular building in michigan was built in the 1950s and scheduled for reconstruction anyway, and the people who lived there wanted to have a building built in the same location to keep the school on their campus. so that's the purpose behind
2:29 pm
this. you can't have the purpose behind all construction and reconstruction based on school shootings. it's more important that we go to prevention. we look for prevention methods. >> let's talk more about prevention. it is seeing an increase in tips since el paso and dayton. we know of at least 29 people that have been arrested since the shootings. the suspects range between 13 to 38 years old. most are white males and most made the threats on social media, so what signs should people be looking for? >> well, i think as long as they don't profile, as long as they don't say it must be this type of person or that type of person that's the most important thing because you want to make sure that you look for everybody around you, male, female, young, old, rural, urban, in whatever category whether a student or not. what are you looking for? you're looking for behaviors and you need to look at somebody who is withdrawing from society and
2:30 pm
their conduct is atypical, friend, family, peer, teachers, coworkers, bosses, that's who know -- those are the people who can see when somebody's behavior becomes atypical and so whatever that person's typical behavior is, and then they suddenly start acting differently, they withdraw from society and they start talking about -- they have suicidal comments and they start talking about somebody should do something about this or somebody should do something about those people who -- those kind of atypical language and then on top of that the actions, where may begin to do things like acquire ammunition, they acquire more guns. they go to the range more often than they usually go to the range if they do carry a weapon or if they do own weapons. it's not owning a weapon. it's the atypical behavior behind owning a weapon. it's not being on social media. it's the atypical behavior of suddenly starting to search for
2:31 pm
and idolize and talk about how people who have committed these acts are really the real heroes or particular behaviors that have to do with hate groups. those are all things that you need to look for and you also need to report them. >> okay. that's important information. katherine schwide, thank you very much for taking the time. this week we heard the president refer to himself as the chosen one. what did evangelical voters think about it their frank conversation about it. they're live in the cnn newsroom. are we supposed to dance? ♪ boy boy bands without dancing are just ok. get a better than just ok unlimited plan with spotify premium included on america's best network.

>> i don't think any of us are looking for a pastor in chief. >> right. >> you know? >> i think we're looking for a commander in chief. >> even evangelical christians weighing in on campaign 2020 and president donald trump. >> how many of you at this point do plan to vote for donald trump? >> one, two, three, four. >> four support trump. four are still undecided and one will absolutely not vote for trump. >> this man is not morally sound as a leader. as a christian. >> trump's recent comments calling jewish people disloyal if they vote democratic is a turn off to some in our group. >> as a trump supporter, i think he was out of line. >> does it offend any of you that the president seems to be treating this vast religious group the jewish people as a monolithic voting bloc. >> what bothers me is any time a religious group can lumped together so that they can be lobbied as if they are all going
2:37 pm
to vote one way. >> we are not monolithic and that's what part of trump's problem is even when he refers to immigration or whatever he'll go hispanics. they're not monolithic. >> is this rhetoric dangerous? >> this is not new rhetoric. it's just that we have a president now who speaks plainly. it does not make him a racist. >> when critics of donald trump call him a white supremacist and call him a racist, you disagree. >> i disagree. >> this evangelical voter isn't sold on trump, but she's happy he's calling attention to issues democrats are ignoring like undocumented workers taking housing from african-americans who need it. >> he talks about that. nobody wants to talk about the elephant in the room. illegal immigration, immigration, nobody wants to talk about it. there is not a city in america that is black folks are not on these streets. go see charlotte. people who look like me are on the literal streets. >> why are you okay with supporting donald trump? >> we are imperfect.
2:38 pm
we are going to offend one another. he is not the pastor at friendship missionary baptist church. he is my president. >> trump has been married three times and has never asked for forgiveness from god and has never been pro-choice. >> why are you able to look past donald trump's flaws and support him? >> because it's not my place to judge his heart. >> and this week when the president referred to himself as the chosen one, echoing what some evangelical leaders have said about him, that certainly caught this group's attention. >> when we ask the question is he the chosen one? for what? to help our trade agreements with china? maybe. is he the guy that's going to help us solve racism in america? heck no! >> part of your faith includes forgiveness. can you forgive the president for some of the things -- >> absolutely. i forgive him absolutely, but i still have to stand the gap for

>> just yesterday we learned of justice ruth bader ginsburg's new battle with bapancreatic cancer, surveying how her seat carries the high court, which currently leans conservative
2:44 pm
5-4, it would hand the president the third supreme court appointment of his term. president trump sent his prayers ahead of his departure for the g7 summit in france. >> i hope she does very well. our thoughts and prayers are with her and it's a very serious situation. i'm -- i'm hoping she's going to be fine. she's pulled through a lot. she's strong, very tough, but we wish her well, very well. >> let's bring in cnn supreme court analyst joan bizcoupic. what does her seat signify for both sides of the aisle? >> she is the liberal on this tightly-divided court. conservatives do control in many of the closely divided cases, but she has worked hard with those on the left to stop the conservative majority from rolling back liberal precedents from the 1960s and 70s.
2:45 pm
so far, most notably, the 1973 decision roe v. wade that made abortion legal nationwide, and you mentioned that president trump has already had two appointees, but as you know, those two appointees neil gorsuch and brett kavanaugh succeeded conservative jurists. if ruth bader ginsburg felt the need to step down and donald trump got a third appointment it would be far more significant because this individual would be succeeding someone very much entrenched on the left, and in fact, she is -- she is sort of the left word poll with justice sonia sotomayor on this bench and it would tip dramatically to the right and change the law in america. >> we know justice ginsburg took in a broadway show on thursday evening. she has a speaking engagement on monday and it doesn't sound like she plans on slowing down, does it? >> it doesn't, and each time she
