twitter. the president asked does this guy have anything better to do with his life? ben tracy is in beijing with the test that could be a major change in the standoff with north korea. ben, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. if this truly was an icbm the threat from north korea just got a lot more serious. kim jong-un said his goal is a nuclear-tipped ick ick intercontinental ballistic missile that could hit the united states and he may be one step closer to making that happen. north korean station television gleefully announced what it called an historic p event. it claims kim jong-un oversaw a successful test of this ballistic missile. it is calling the 14. with a projected range of about 4,000 miles it would be capable of hitting all of alaska, but not the continental united states or hawaii. during 11 missile tests this year north korea has demonstrated its growing capabilities.

billion worth of weapons to taiwan further angering beijing. the chinese government is now calling for restraint and wants the u.s. to start talking to north korea. china seems unwilling to impose further sanctions. their fear is that if kim jong-un's regime fails it would have nothing to lose and that could lead to a nuclear war on the korean peninsula. >> ben tracy in beijing, thank you. this missile launch happened just before the g-20 summit in germany where president trump meets with other world leaders. they include the presidents of china, south korea and russia. mr. trump returned to washington last night after a weekend trip to his new jersey golf club. kris van cleave is at the white house. good morning, kris. >> reporter: good morning. president trump was briefed late last night on north korea's latest ballistic missile launch. just a day earlier he spoke with china's president about continue taping north korea's nuclear weapons program. according to the new york tips, president trump told the chinese
7:07 am
president the united states is prepared to act on is own in dealing with north korea but the white house's official statement on the call said the two leaders reaffirmed their commitment to a denuclearized korean peninsula. the once warm relationship between the two presidents has chilled as north korea continues its push for nuclear weapons. yesterday russian president vladimir putin hosted president xi in moscow. putin is set to meet with trump for the first time on friday. it is still unclear if he will bring up russian meddling in the u.s. election or russian sanctions. the crekremlin says the patienc with the u.s. is running out. also in washington, cbs news senior national security contributor, a former acting and deputy director of the cia. michael, good to see you. this -- this test happened on july 4th, america's independence day. it happened just before the g-20 summit. how long will it be before we know exactly what kind of missile this was? >> jeff, it will take several days for the intelligence
7:08 am
community to make an assessment of whether this was an intermediate range missile or whether this was an intercontinental. that matters here. an intermediate range would not be able to reach alaska or hawaii, an icbm of the type we just saw tested would, so it really matters here but it will be a few days before we know for sure. >> jeff just mentioned that fourth of july and g-20 summit coming up. what's the message that kim jong-un is sending to the world community right now? >> so, it's interesting. he has had a history of doing provocative acts on july 4th. his first nuclear test back in 2006 was on july 4th. he seems to think that it has a particular psychological impact on us doing something on july 4th. it obviously does not. it probably gets less news than he would like on july 4th.
7:09 am
we used to joke at cia that the only thing doing this on july 4th does is ruin the holidays of a lot of intelligence analysts. but he does have a history of doing this. the message he's trying to send is, i can deter the united states of america from attacking me. i can deter them from trying to change the regime. that's the message he's trying to send. >> the national security advisor said there are a range of options they are looking at. you told us back in april you thought the best thing to do right now would be to ignore the north korean president. do you believe that's still the case? >> so there is no good option here. there is no military option here to destroy his nuclear program, his missile program. there is no option to do that. that wouldn't start a second korean war and wouldn't raise the possibility of him using nuclear weapons against his neighbors. he's got short range missiles, he has had a lot more time to
quote
7:10 am
work to make a nuclear weapon to those missiles so the risks are extraordinarily high in a military standoff. there's also no diplomatic action here. i agree with the sentiment that there is no way that he will ever negotiate away his nuclear weapon program. so there's very little you can do except sanction him every time he does something and build our missile defenses as we're doing in south korea, in hawaii, in california, alaska, to defend ourselves. that is about all we can do in the situation we face here. there are no good options. >> mike morrell, thank you for joining us. >> welcome. new jersey state beaches and parks are open for fourth of july after governor chris christie and democratic lawmakers reached a late night budget deal. the agreement came one day after christie was photographed with his family on a state beach that he had ordered closed. demarco morgan is at numg's
7:11 am
island beach state park. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. for the first time this holiday weekend the public will be allowed inside this state park. governor christie has an official summer residence here, but over the weekend those images of him sunbathing while this beach was closed caused a lot of backlash up and down the jersey shore. >> this is a long overdue significant reform that will have lasting impact on new jersey residents. >> reporter: democrats and republicans struck a last-minute pudge et deal monday night. it calls for an overall of new jersey's largest health insurer in exchange for nearly $300 million in democratic spending priorities. >> this is the best budget that we've had in ten years. >> reporter: but even as the budget stalemate came to an end governor christie continued to face questions over his decision to spend time on island beach state park. >> shame on those people who wanted to make this as if we were taking advantage of something. >> reporter: christie and his family had almost ten miles of
7:12 am
beach all to themselves as a result of the partial government shutdown. >> let's be really clear. that's our residence and we have a right to be there whenever we want to be there. >> i thought it was insensitive and tone deaf. >> republican lieutenant governor running to replace christie said it was out of touch. >> people can't use a public beach, then quite frankly neither should the elected public officials. >> he was on the beach for 45 minutes and back in trenton that day. >> reporter: it carried a blunt message for the governor -- get the hell off the beach, an apparent jab at its warning of 2011 ahead of hurricane irene. >> i think christie should be ashamed of himself. especially since he gets to enjoy his own beach. >> reporter: christie whose job approval rating has sunk to 15% was ridiculed on line. his image was photo shopped into iconic movie scenes and used as
7:13 am
a reminder of the bridgegate scandal. >> this is another example of our politicians caring more about themselves than about us. >> reporter: late monday governor christie said he was saddened that the budget deal came three days late. the government will reopen tomorrow and state workers will get a paid holiday at the governor's request. dana? >> demarco, thank you. massachusetts state police are investigating a taxi crash that hurt ten leading cab drives near boston's logan i remember airport. the tack i jumped the curb of an outdoor rest area for drivers. state police believe the crash was unintentional. the injured drivers were taken to boston-area hospitals with minor to serious injuries. u.s.-backed forces in syria are marving an important milestone in the fight against is isis. u.s. central command says the fighters broke through a key defensive wall and entered the old city of raqqah. american led coalition struck holes in the wall, letting fighters through. holly williams is in northern syria. holly, good morning.
7:14 am
>> reporter: good morning. the u.s. september troops here to syria specifically to help in the fight against isis. but that's just one part of this country's bloody civil war. amongst the olive groves of northern syria, beside a deserted village that's been pum emed by artillery lies one of the strapgest front lines in the world. this area is under the control of these u.s. backed fighters but if you look over here about 500 yards away that is syrian regime territory and they are backed by russia and iran. and then if you look down here, about a mile in that direction, those are positions that belong to syrian rebels and they're backed by turkey. and if you're confused, don't worry because so are many of the people who live and fight here. some of the globe's most powerful militaries are vying for influence in syria. the local commander of the u.s. backed forces told us foreign
7:15 am
influence has wreaked chaos on his country. things could get more complicated. we might be here for another ten years. for the u.s., this conflict is already complicated. it said it's not here to fight the syrian regime, but last month it shot down a regime fighter jet. in a nearby city, they're battle scarred and weary. in six years of civil war it's changed hands three times. ahmed is a falafel maker who supports hi entire family on just $3 a day. "we're so tired of war," he told us. "we feel like we're already dead." how far the u.s. will go to support its syrian allies once isis has been driven out is an open question. as to how long american service members will stay in syria to deal with whatever it is that comes next. for "cbs this morning," holly

williams, northern syria. a tweet from president trump intensified a global debate about a british infant and the limits of medical care. 11-month-old charlie gard suffers from a rare and incurable genetic disease. a london hospital wants to remove child support. charlie d'agata is outside the hospital with the family's fight to bring him to the u.s. charlie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. a baby lies in a cot in one of those hospital rooms barely aware of his surroundings, certainly unaware that his fate will be decided in the next few days. as of last week the family was making the final preparations but that's before a pope and a president intervened. charlie guard looked like a happy healthy baby boy when he was born 11 months ago today before it became known he was suffering from a rare terminal disease, before he found himself at the center of an ethical and legal battle that now involves pope francis and president trump
7:17 am
who yesterday tweeted, if we can help little charlie as per our friends in the uk and the pope we'd be delighted to do so. but british doctors insist and british courts agree, there is no help and no hope for charlie. he's blind and deaf, can't move his limbs or breathe on his own. a condition so rare he's thought to be only one of 16 children in the world to suffer from it. but his parents have refused to give up, raising $1.7 million to pay for experimental medical treatment in the u.s. >> so we don't get this opportunity he's going to die. >> what's the alternative. >> yeah. he hasn't got anything to lose. we know that we've done -- even if it doesn't work, which i think it will, we know that we've done everything that we can for him. >> reporter: that hope, however slim is what makes this case so heart wrenching says the doctor.
7:18 am
>> every parent in the back of their mind with a child with a disorder says maybe if i hold out long enough the cure will come or there will be a magic that happens, and so the big question is, is there too much brain damage for this to be reversible or not? >> reporter: as it stands, europe's highest court has decided charlie's life support will be switched off. >> we know our son is going to die and we don't even get a say in what happens. >> reporter: if president trump holds any sway in this case, ultimately the decision rests with the hospital staff here. whether they've had a change of heart and charlie is allowed to travel to the united states or whether his life support will be switched off as planned. >> charlie d'agata in london. thank you. flames and thick smoke from a large wildfire shut down 26 miles of a major highway in nevada. this fire burning east of reno quickly spread to interstate 80. it's already scorched at least 10,000 acres.

but the options i'm told stop short of actually using military force against north korea. nk thank you. north korea tested that hessile just days before world leaders gathered for the g 20 summit in germany. president trump will discuss the nuclear threat with the leaders of japan and south korea. the president warned china the u.s. will act on its own to deal .ith north korea. the white house said on sunday that the two leaders agreed the korean peninsula should be nuclear free. ben tracy is in beijing with the issues at stake this week. >> reporter: so president trump is once again calling on china to help curb north korea's weapons program but china feels like it's done quite a bit in terms of backing sanctions on ril,h korea. if you go back to april, they eemed form a relationship and president trump went out of his way to compliment the chinese f his but that relationship seems to have taken a negative turn. beijing is upset and issued

the traditional summer job is quickly fading as a rite of passage for american teenagers. in the summer of 1978, 60% of teens either worked or looked for work. by last summer that fell to only 35%. derrick thompson of the atlantic recently wrote about the reasons why and joins us now this morning. happy fourth. >> happy fourth.
8:15 am
>> we've lendearned your first summer job was as a tennis instructor. you write about several reasons and one of them is education. why is education hurting teen work? >> i think there's a sense when you look at the statistics, it seems like kids are just being lazy. teenagers used to work during the summer and now they're not. in fact if you look at the numbers, 25% more of these teens are entering college and that 25% is exactly the drop in the number of teens who are working summer jobs. so it appears to be a relatively one for one switch. they're less likely to work summer jobs but they're more likely to study, to take summer classes, to take unpaid internships which the government doesn't count as a job because it is in fact unpaid. so they are keeping busy, they're just investing in their future, investing in college education rather than working for that near minimum wage. >> so is that a good thing, the fact that they're in the classroom? >> i think it's a good thing. there's all sorts of studies that seem to suggest there are
8:16 am
soft skills that you learn in a summer job to help you build a sense of responsibility, but investing in your education is also responsible. and there's all sorts of evidence that suggests that people who go to and finish college are much more likely to make more money and be happy in their careers, so i see this as not an altogether bad thing. i think it's a positive development. >> it's a good problem if you can afford it. you're not making a ton of money but some kids have to work to make that money. businesses still want to hire them, though, the kids want to pursue the education instead? >> there's two interesting things happening at the macroeconomic level. you have an increase in low skilled immigration and an increase in older workers working and they tend to take a lot of these jobs like in retail and leisure and hospitality that used to be the province of teens during the summer. the second thing that's happening is the minimum wage has increased a little bit recently. some people think there might be a job that you'd give a 17-year-old for $5 an hour but when the minimum wage is $10,
8:17 am
$15 an hour, you say, okay, i'm not going to hire a teenager to work this job. >> you mentioned retail. we've seen a decline in actual brick and mortar stores. has that had an impact? >> it's had an impact on the number of retail workers. the u.s. economy has lost 80,000 retail jobs since october of last year. that's more than the total number of steel workers in america. so you have enormous disruption happening in retail. i wouldn't rule that out. >> that was my first summer job. >> stick around, because jeff's first job was making sandwiches. >> hoagies. >> hoeing eagies, sorry. derek thompson, thanks for joining us. >> thank you. taking aride on a bull takes a lot of courage but mike strausman finds out. >> you have no fear of riding a bull but you're scared of a roller coaster. how does that work? >> i don't know. my heart goes up into my throat and my stomach goes into my throat and i can't do it.

8:34 am
american birthday. >> i'm always surprised at what little i know about history. the basic things that you learn that you're surprised took a different turn. george washington for instance, where was he at the signing of the declaration? >> he did not sign. he was actually here in new york city. washington had taken over the continental army the year before, gone up to came bridge first and then the british left boston and came down to new york. washington had the troops here. the declaration was sent to him. he had it read aloud to the troops on july 9th. they went out then and store down a statue of king george the iii and melted it into bullets, so the legend goes. and the lead up to the battle of new york which was not a happy moment for hamilton or washington. it was a tremendous defeat for the continental army. >> there are things about history you're surprised you don't know.
8:35 am
what about george washington? what don't we know about him? >> well, he didn't chop down a cherry tree, so let's get rid of that. he is a fascinating character in so many ways. i think the thing that i always must come back to because we don't discuss it is what you mentioned in terms of the declaration. washington also was a slave holder. was one of the largest slave holders at the time, in fact, in 1776 and he was already beginning to wrestle with that problem. this contradiction. how do we fight for liberty, yet keep people in chains. so that's a problem. you mentioned jefferson condemning slavery and the southerners objecting to it but jefferson also noticed that a great many men of the north objected because they were making a great deal of money transporting slaves. there were slaves in every one of the colonies. >> jefferson wrote condemnation of slavery in one of the versions. >> that's right. his draft, which the library has -- the new york public library has, a fair copy, he
8:36 am
made it a few days after wards. it includes this long denunciation of slavery. again, how could he denounce slavery that was taken out. i can tell you jefferson was not happy at being edited by the congress, but that in particular was taken out and it is this great contradiction, our nation concedes in liberty is also born in shackles and we still have to balance that out when we look at these great men and what they accomplished. they did risk life, liberty and their fortunes, their sacred honor. they would have been strung up if they had been caught but they were fighting to preserve and protect this crime against humanity. >> i wish i had learned more about women in american history. sally hemmings, we're learning so much more about her in recent years. they just recently discovered her living quarters. >> they discovered the room in
