7:00 am
regarding the mass shootings in a few moments. >> you want to stay tuned for cbs special report, have a great day. this is a cbs news special report. president trump is about to address the nation in the wake of two deadly mass shootings just 13 hours apart including one here in el paso and another in dayton, ohio. 29 people were killed in the attacks and more than 50 people were hurt. this morning on twitter the president called for change. he tweeted quote, we cannot let those killed in el paso, texas and dayton, ohio die in vain. republicans and democrats must come together and get strong
7:01 am
background checks. this legislation with desperately needed immigration reform. still not clear what all of that means. that's why we're waiting to hear more from the president. what's your sense? what are you hearing from white house officials about what does the president mean when he says strong background checks are needed? >> reporter: they are not going to answer that right now because the president will have to answer that for himself. aids aren aides aren't clear what he means by that. he has mentioned this in the past. democrats have treed to strengthen the checks before. lengthening the time of review from tree to ten days and requiring the checks for every firearm that is sold. the president seems to present a new idea of marrying legislation on gun reform with immigration
7:02 am
refo reform. two extremely difficult issues. we should mention this isn't the first time he's made a call for stronger controls like this. after the shooting at marjory stoneman douglas high school, he said the same thing. he said that to the parents of the victims inside the white house that he would be strong and consider raising, for example, the legal age limit to purchase semiautomatic weapons from 18 to 21. he specifically mentioned having to do more reviews of people who buy guns and then that went away. that faded after strong push back from his party and the nra. he really has to answer what he means. you mentioned the tweet and that's all that has to happen. there are other things we'll be
7:03 am
looking for as the president makes remarks here. number one, how will he respond to those claims that he is to blame for what happened in el paso. given what he know about the shooters motive, given almost identical language that the gunman used in talking about the crisis at the border with regard to illegal immigration. number two, how will he characterize the shooting because words matter here. like racism, white supremacy, heroism so describe this attack. we know federal authorities are investigating this as an act of domestic terrorism. we know that lawmakers on both sides have used the words white racism to describe what happened here. we know his own daughter, ivanka trump, even said that white s supremacy must be stopped.
7:04 am
it mattered how the president classifies this shooting. he said this is the result of mental illness. he's not used those very words in describing what happened in el paso. he will also have to talk about the other shooting in columbus and again, back to our original point, is what happens now. he will have to tell the country what he plans to do to prevent more attacks in the future. norah. >> all right. noting the president has reneged on previous responses to get tougher on background checks. it's not yet clear whether any type of stronger background checks would have stopped either of the shooters in dayton, ohio or here in el paso. one important thing to note as well, the fbi has issued an extraordinary statement from its director late last night in which fbi director said he's concerned about a continued
7:05 am
threat posed by domestic violence extremists and perpetrators of hate crime saying people may be spired by some of these high profile attacks that have happened. this has drawn a concern of those on capitol hill. republicans and democrats. nancy is there on capitol hill. i know democrats in the house have tried to pass tougher gun laws just this year but nothing came of it, right? >> reporter: that's right. those bills have stalled here in the senate back in february. democrats now control the house passed a universal background check bill. it picks up from eight house republicans. while the president says he supports more background check, the white house is still officially opposed to that legislation. the president has threatened to veto that legislation. the nra opposes that legislation arguing that background checks don't work. arguing that the legislation would be too onerous for gun
7:06 am
owners. while you have democrats in the senate calli ining on the senat republican leaders to bring every one back in the midst of this five-week recess to hold an emergency session to deal with unviolence, it's highly unlikely that will happen because the reality is that many republicans here on capitol hill even though they know that a vast majority of the american public support beefing up background checks, they worry this could be a slippery slope that if you pass a bill addressing background checks then democrats will want more and more legislation addressing the gun violence problem. addressing gun control. something that many republicans oppose. >> nancy, we're just looking at live pictures from inside the diplomatic room where we're expecting the president to speak shortly. the president mentioning he would try and marry background checks with immigration reform legislation. two things they can't get down
7:07 am
on their own. how will they get done together. >> that was a really interesting approach because typically what you try to do kwlowhen you need pass something controversial is marry it with something uncontroversial. that's how you get something very difficult over the finish line. the idea you would take something controversial and marry it to something that is just as controversial, if not more so, that's typically a strategy we don't see here on capitol hill. i suppose the thinking is if you take something that democrats really want, gun control legislation and you marry it with something that republicans really want, immigration controls and perhaps you've got a winning approach here, but if you talk to democratic and republican leaders, they really think that getting something like that off over the finish line would be almost impossible. you don't see much on the effort of the part of the republicans
7:08 am
to try to push comprehensive immigration reform because the politics is so entransit. >> let's listen to the president joined by the vice president. >> my fellow americans, this morning our nation is overcome with shock, horror and sorrow. this weekend more than 80 people were killed wounded in two evil attacks. on saturday morning in el paso, a wicked man went to a walmart store where families were shopping with their loved ones. he shot and murdered 20 people and injured 26 others, include g i ing precious little children. then in the early hours of sunday morning, dayton, ohio, another twisted monster opened fire on a crowded downtown street. he murdered nine people,
7:09 am
including his own sister and injured 27 others. the first lady and i join all americans in praying and grieving for the victims, their families and the survivors. we will stand by their side for ever. we will never forget. these barbaric slaughters are an insult upon our communities and attack upon our nation and a crime against all of humanity. we are outraged and sickened by this monstrous evil. the cruelty, the hatred, the malice, the bloodshed and the terror. our hearts are shattered for every family whose parents, children, husbands and wives were ripped from their arms and their lives. america weeps for the fallen.
7:10 am
we're a loving nation and our children are entitled to grow up in a just, peaceful and loving society. together we lock arms to shoulder the grief. we ask god in heaven to ease the anguish of those who suffer and we vow to act with urgent resolve. i want to thank the many law enforcement personnelho responded to these atrocities with the extraordinary grace and courage of american heroes. i have spoken with texas governor greg abbott and ohio governor mike dewine as well as the mayor of el paso and mayor of dayton, ohio to basexpress o profound sadness and unfailing support. today we send the condolences of our nation to the president of
7:11 am
mexico and all the people of k mexico for the loss of their citizens in the el paso shooting. terrible, terrible thing. i've also been in close contact with attorney general barr and fbi director wrey. federal authorities are on the ground and i have directed them to provide any and all assistance required, whatever is needed. shooter in el paso in posted a manifesto online consumed by racist hate. in one voice our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy. these sinister ideologies must be defeated. hate has no place in america. hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart and devours the soul. we have asked the fbi to
7:12 am
identify all further resources they need to investigate and disrupt hate crimes and domestic terrorists, whatever they need. we must recognize that the internet has provided a dangerous avenue to radicalized disturbed minds and perform demented acts. we must shine light on the dark recesses of the internet and stop mass murders before they start. the internet, like wise, is used for human trafficking, illegal drug distribution and so many other heinous crimes. the perils of the internet and social media cannot be ignored and they will not be ignored. in the two decades since columbine our nation has watched with rising horror as one mass
7:13 am
shooting has followed another, over and over again, decade after decade. we cannot allow ourselves to feel powerless. we can and will stop this evil c contagion. we must honor the sacred memory of those we have lost by acting as one people. open wounds cannot heal if we are divided. we must seek real bipartisan solutions. we have to do that in a bipartisan manner. that will truly make america safer and better for all. first we must do a better job if identifying and acting on early warning signs. i am directing the department of justice to work in partnership with local, state and federal agencies as well as social media companies to develop tools that can detect mass shooters before they strike. as an example, the monster in the parkland high school in
7:14 am
florida had many red flags against him and yet nobody took decisive action. nobody did anything. why not? second, we must stop the glorification of violence in our society. this includes the gruesome and grisly video games that are now common place. it's too easy today for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence. we must stop or substantially reduce this and it has to begin immediately. cultural change is hard. each of us can choose to build a culture that celebrates the inherent worth and dignity of every human life. that's what we have to do. third, we must reform our mental health laws to better identify mental mental mentally disturbed individuals
7:15 am
who may commit acts of violence and make sure those people not only get treatment but when necessary, involuntary confi confineme confinement. mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun. fourth, we must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms and that if they do, those firearms can be taken through rapid due process. that is why i have called for red flag laws also known as extreme risk protection orders. today i'm also directing the department of justice to propose legislation ensuring that those who commit hate crimes and mass murders face the death penalty and that this capital punishment be delivered quickly, decisively and without years of needless delay. these are just a few of the areas of cooperation that we can
7:16 am
pursue. i'm open and ready to listen and discuss all ideas that will actually work and make a very big difference. republicans and democrats have proven that we can join together in a bipartisan fashion to address this play. last year, we enacted the stop school violence and fix nix act into law providing grants to improve school safety and strengthening critical background checks for firearm purchases. at my direction, the department of justice banned bump stops. last year we prosecuted a record number of firearms offenses. there is so much more that we have to do. now is the time to set destructive partisanship aside.
7:17 am
so destructive and find the courage to answer hatred with devotion and love. our future is in our control. america will rise to the challenge. we will always have and we always will win. the choice is ours and ours alone. it is not up to mentally ill men st -- monsters. it's up to us. if we're able to pass great legislation after all of these years, we will ensure that those who are attacked will not have died in vain. may god bless the memory of those who perished in toledo. may got protect them. may god protect all of those from texas to ohio. may got bless the victims and their families. may god bless america. thank you very much. thank you.
7:18 am
>> inside the white house reporters trying to get in a couple of questions to the president. a strong statement condemning what he called crimes against all humanity. the cruelty, the hatred, the malice and saying that america weeps for the fallen. let's bring in nancy from capitol hill. nancy, the president had in a tweet earlier said he would call for stronger background checks, what did you hear in terms of substance? >> reporter: he really didn't get into what kind of background check legislation he would actually support. that's something the democrats were listening for after he kind of opened the door in his tweets this morning. would he actually reverse his position and support the universal background check bill that passed the house back in february. he didn't appear to do that. i'm sure that if reporters have chance to follow up with him and his aides later today they'll try to get some answers about
7:19 am
that. he did express support for so called red flag laws. these are laws that certain states like indiana have already enacted which allow authorities to detain, sometimes up to two weeks individuals who appear to pose an imminent threat to themselves or to others and to detain their firearms. he appeared to be pushing for law like that on a national level. that's something that some republicans have expressed support for this weekend. one thing that a lot of lawmakers were looking for in this speech is whether he would do something that he has declined to do in the past. that's denounce white supremacy. he did. at the very top of his speech he denounced racism and white supreissu supremacy. something many lawmakers feel is important but they feel it's too late. they believe the president oos own rhetoric over the past couple of years has normalized
7:20 am
the notion of white supremacy in this motion. they think he needs to do a lot more. not only speak out genagainst i but also to curtail his own rhetoric. >> all right. important points about legislation. that phrase in particular when the president said in one voice our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy. that was a step further than the president has taken in the past. >> reporter: it really is. in fact, we had to wait for some time in the past after similar instances. remember in charlottesville after a white supremacist rally and the president initially said there are very fine people on both sides of the conflict. after adviser, lawmakers, americans were in his ear urging him, he did that ultimately. this is different. he immediately came out and said this country would not stand for
7:21 am
it. he said they are outrage and sickened by this monstrous evil. he directly mentioned the shooter in el paso who denounced hispanic invasion at the border. some of that language mirrors how president trump talked about the immigration crisis at the border. that's why critics were so quick to draw the link between what happened in el paso and how the president has been talking about these migrants before. in this case he brought up that shooter. he said these sinister ideologies must be defeated and he really did set a different tone than he did in the past when it comes to condemning this hate. >> all right. i want to bring in david. today what is happening here in terms of the suspect? >> we're waiting to see if he appears in court.
7:22 am
we're waiting to see if they file federal hiate crimes. we're waiting to see how it will be handle. here at the scene more people continue to show up. it's quiet here. they stand to look. they stand to pray and they stand to reflect. >> a community still in mourning. thank you so much. our coverage will continue on our 24 hour streaming service. you can watch it at or our news app. there will be more on your local news on this cbs station and tonight on the cbs evening news be. some of you will return now to cbs this morning. this has been a cbs news special report. cbs news, el paso. this summer at panera, we're going all in on strawberries. at their reddest, ripest, they make everything better. like our strawberry poppyseed salad

the mass shootings in texas and ohio add to the grim record on gun violence. there have been at least 255 mass shootings this year. they've killed 273 people and injured more than a thousand others. new york police deputy commissioner john miller testified before congress in 2016 about law enforcement's

good morning to our viewers in the west. monday, august 5, 2019. welcome back to "cbs this morning." president trump promised an urgent response in his first extensive comments about the back-to-back mass shooting. we will abogo to the white houso look at what he is proposing and get a reality check from capitol hill. how a father who lost his son in the parkland shooting is in el paso making a connection by painting murals. first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. two deadly mass shootings 13 hours apart, including one in el paso and another in dayton,
8:01 am
ohio. >> these barbaric slaughters are an assault upon our communities, an attack upon our nation, and a crime against all of humanity. we are outraged and sickened. >> we didn't get into what kind of background check legislation he would actually support, and that's something that democrats were listening for after he kind of opened the door in his tweet. >> he really did set a different tone than he did in the past when it comes to condemning this hate. >> we are waiting to see whether or not the suspect appears in court. people continue to show up. it's quiet here. they stand to look. they stand to pray. they stand to reflect. >> we are telling the rest of the world that if you come into our communities and try to scare us, we will not cower. if you try to come in to our communities and spread hate, we will respond with love.
8:02 am
>> i'm anthony mason. gayle king and tony dokoupil are off. gain a jacobson and jericka duncanen are with us. this morning president trump don semd white supremacy and called for urgent action to protect americans from gun violence in the wake of two deadly mass shootings. he said people who pose an imminent threat to the public should not have access to guns. he just spoke from the white house where he condemned racism in all forms. >> in one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry, and white supremacy. these sinister ideologies must be defeated. hate has no place in america. hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart, and devours the soul. >> the president's words come after back-to-back mass shootings over the weekend that killed at least 29 people.
8:03 am
the victims ranged in age from 15 to 86. in both attacks the shooters used assault-style rifles. chip reid joins us from the white house. chip, what did the president say about his plan to deal with gun violence? >> reporter: well, one interesting thing it is that in his tweets earlier this morning he said, quote, republicans and democrats must come together and get strong background checks. but in his on-camera statement a shrt time ago, he did not mention that. the question now is he already backing off that proposal, which would be highly unpopular among republicans and especially the nra. the president did make some other proposal suggestions. let's listen to some of those. >> we must reform our mental health laws to better identify mentally disturbed individuals who may commit acts of violence and make sure those people not only get treatment, but when necessary involuntary
8:04 am
confinement. mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger. not the gun. >> reporter: nad in addition, t president is directing the department of justice to propose legislation for the death penalty in cases in which there is a mass murder that is motivated by hate. he made very clear that he wants that death penalty in those cases to be delivered quickly and decisively. he also said that law enforcement needs to do a better job identifying people who might do something like this. identifying red flags. he specifically mentioned the parkland shooting and said that people knew that this person might do something like this, but nobody did anything. he also said we need to stop the glorification of violence. he particularly pointed at video games. he said children are surrounded by violence, video game violence in particular, all the time. back to you. >> chip, thank you very much. president trump did not blame
8:05 am
guns for the attacks in el paso and dayton. democrats are calling on senate majority leader mitch mcconnell to reconvene t. it's been nearly 15 years since a ban on assault weapons expired. it became law in 1994 and prohibited certain models of weapons. one study estimates there are 400 million civilian-owned firearms in this country. more than any other country in the world. nancy cordes joins us now from capitol hill. nancy, what are lawmakers proposing at this point? >> well, the house passed a universal background check bill back in february. the house controlled by democrats. eight republicans did join them in passing that bill, and it's been stalled in the republican-controlled senate ever since. the president did express some support earlier this morning for background check legislation,
8:06 am
but the white house is officially on record as threatening to veto that bill. it says that it would be too restrictive for gun owners, would make it too onerous to pass guns on to family members. the question is where would the senate go from here if democrats were to get their way? and get the republican leader to bring all of the senate back for an emergency session. that's something that would be highly unlikely in the best of times. the republican leader, mitch mcconnell, is firmly on recordazzo posing new gun control legislation. but beyond that he fractured his shoulder in a fall at his home over the weekend. so he is probably not that interested in rushing back here to capitol hill. and the question now is, where is the middle ground? earlier this morning the president appeared to be straying into democratic territory when he talked about expanding background checks. in his speech he was back to
8:07 am
saying that mental illness, not guns, is the real culprit here, to which democrats have already responded. mental illness is a problem around the world. video games are used throughout the world. tlt only one wealthy country that has this rate of gun violence, and it's the united states. they say it's about because there are so many more guns here. >> thank you. in his address, president trump made reference to what he called the dark recesses of the internet as a breeding ground for violent behavior. >> we must recognize that the internet has provided a dangerous avenue to radicalize disturbed minds and perform demented acts. we must shine light on the dark recesses of the internet and stop mass murders before they start. >> cbs news chief justice and homeland security correspondent jeff pegues joins us. are investigators monitoring the internet for any additional possible attacks? >> well, they pay attention to what's going on on the internet,
8:08 am
especially if they get tips. you know, they are not going to be monitoring 24 hours a day. that's not what they do. then you have first amendment concerns. but if they see someone making statements online and then taking steps to purchase a weapon or body armor or something like that, then they can open a case. >> we know that the suspected shooter posted this manifesto on 8chan. we heard the president mention that in his remarks. the site has been linked to two other mass shootings. for people at home, what is 8chan? >> to be frank, some people call it a cesspool of hate. it is a lawless message board. that's something else people say. people feel free to just say whatever, and there is really no limit to what they can say and post. and that's why you see in many of these recent incidents, you see that link there. you have the social media and you have something posted on 8chan or 4chan, for that matter.
8:09 am
other sites try to monitor that information that's coming out more closely, but clearly there are people being inspired online. >> jeff, we were talking about this earlier. is there something we can learn from the way we have approached international terrorism when it comes to domestic terrorism like this? >> i think so. you see how the fbi is evolving. they stood up this new cell which combines domestic terrorism and hate crimes. it's a way to share information with the most skilled investors that they have on these on these domestic terrorism cases and hate crime cases. in a lot of ways, yeah, that harkens back to fighting al qaeda and isis. other similarities include isis inspiring people online. you do see the similarities. >> thank you. and we turn now to the investigation into the el paso shooter. overnight the fbi issued a new warning that people inspired by the attacks in texas and ohio could launch new violence.
8:10 am
ctm national correspondent david begnaud is in el paso. david, what do we know right now? >> reporter: i just got a copy of a court document from the district attorney here in el paso saying that charges have been formally filed. i am actually reading them. capital murder is the charge. multiple counts. the accused is requesting a court-appointed attorney and the bond is set at zero. there is a no bond. the 21-year-old gunman who has been cooperating with officials is sitting in the county jail right now. the feds say they may end up filing their own charges and some of those charges could be firearms charges as well as hate crimes charges. right now we are trying to figure out whether the suspected gunman is expected to go in front of a judge today. we have a law enforcement source telling cbs news the gunman has been speaking to authorities in detail. not just with yes or no answers. he apparently, according to our law enforcement source, has told police he was motivated to do what he did because of his objection to hispanic immigrants in this country.
8:11 am
>> david, thank you. we are watching another big story on wall street this morning. trade tensions with china led to a sharp drop in stocks this morning. the dow jones industrial average has plummeted more than 600 points at one ypoint as new concerns over the u.s./china trade conflict rattled investors. other major indices fell sharply. investors are concerned the worsening trade war could lead to a global economic slowdown. the catalyst for today's plunge was beijing's willingness to let the currency drop below a key level against the dollar for the first time in a decade making its exports cheaper. this follows president trump's threat last week to impose good monday morning we have onshore flow kicking in and that's why it is a cloudy, foggy and drizzly start to the

8:34 am
this is our continuing series with ted, ideas that matter. as students prepare to go back to school. educator, daniel maas says average and students deserve more attention and recognitions . >> the kids we think we can ignore because their needs for support don't seem particularly urgent, there is a coworker who actually keep the engines of our organizations running but who are not seen as the innovators that drive excellence. in many ways, we overlook the folks in the middle because they don't keep us up awake at night wondering what crazy thing they are going to come up with next. >> danielle maas is the ceo of oliver scholars which helps black students in underserved immunities prepare for college. you call this the forgotten middle. explain what that means . >> i think, in my career as an educator, i saw lots of focus
8:35 am
on the highest performing students and a level of high accountability on how well the lowest performance students did or did not do and most students are kind of in the middle, right? so there aren't a lot of resources or attention paid to the vast majority of our kids. >> and we are missing out on something? >> we are evidently missing out on something. >> your tech talk, you said there are unclaimed lottery tickets in the middle? >> absolutely, there's a lot of potential. sometimes kids just need to be exposed and ignited. you can't aspire to do something you've never heard of and so we have to kind of figure out, how can we expose kids and give them opportunities and get them excited about learning again. excited about learning again. >> and how bus was it in terms of having someone in your life
8:36 am
who say, you're. but your mom steps in and said i skpenl more of you. how did you perceive that? >> it was pretty transformational. in my middle school years, i was pretty average, 65%, 75ch grades. my mother knew i was capable of a lot more. one summer much to my dismay she had me go to summer school. i said, i'm not failing. she said, you're also not reaching your potential. and it was in that space that i really reconnected with my aspirations amount had the opportunity to connect with teachers that in a way we don't get to do during the skoors yool. >> some of those peanuter people don't necessarily excel in
8:37 am
school among other things. >> it doesn't mean college only. so we have an obligation to give all of our kids the respect of saying, i think something more is possible for you. and we don't always get to write the end of their story. >> no. >>. we're not looking at whether we're setting expectations. sometimes we resign ourselves to the circumstances kids find themselves in. >> you ha a basic question shift that could help childre achieve or at least reach higher goals when it comes to college. >> right. i took the question do you want to go to college to what college would you like to attend. nobody in my family ever asked me if i wanted to go to college. it was kind of an assumed expectation, so i always had that at the back of my mind that
8:38 am
was something that was expected of me in my household. >> that certainly shoots the expectation. what about those in the middle? is there anything wrong with being average. >> i don't think there's anything wrong with being average. most have average moments in their lives. >> mostly average that not you anthony. >> no one at this table. i think there are times when my role as a mother or commitment to my family took first place, and so maybe your career takes a back seat. we have to get comfortable with that. we're really tuned in to sound bites and glitz and glamour and excellence, but it's hard to kind of maintain yourself at that level, 24/7. >> in everything you do. >> this is a significant point. if keds are perceived to be
8:39 am
average and you push for more -- i guess you can push a kid too hard is what i'm saying. >> i don't think you can push a kid too hard. i think we owe the kids the opportunity and rae expect of saying i think something more is possible, even if they don't react in the moment. you know, e've had the opportunity of staying in touch with students that i taught in the early '90s. they don't get it always when you want them to get it. it's so rewarding to have them come back 15, 20 years later and say, you know what, you were on to something and i eventually got a degree. i just wasn't. >> i'm going to use a casey kay sum line, keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars. thank you very much. we meet a skateboarder who's just 11 years old with big hopes of competing in the 2020
