4:15 pm
another ceo has left president trump's ceo manufacturing jobs initiative. he announced he was leaving minutes after president trump sent out this tweet that said "for every co that drops out of the manufacturing counsel, i have many to take their place. grand standers should not have gone on. "'s departure makes for executives, well now five, who of left. richard trumka, resin
4:16 pm
of the afl-cio also quit. for more the sea -- ceo departures, i have learned from princeton university. what is going on.>> this administration never ceases to amaze me. the first thing to understand is that there a lot of these different initiatives and every administration. whether they are effective or not is a tough thing to identify, but the number of people leaving is surprising. overall, the president has about 35 ceos left on these initiatives. we will have to see how many dropout, but the thing i always tell people is that ceos especially of public companies, the number one concern is their employees, their customers, and their shareholders.
4:17 pm
these ceos will make a decision on a case-by-case basis. if they have left, that means that they believe it is the best thing for the company. that is their concern. >> head of the afl-cio who just quit, said that they understand that the other decisions of the council which has yet to hold any real meeting and we are reassessing our role. >> what are they doing if they are having real meetings? >> that is the presidents job council. that is with the afl-cio was part of. they have other heavy hitters on their like pepsico, intel, and of course, we have to acknowledge that it is really hard to get these people in a room together when there are a lot of them. president obama's job council met a total of four times. but you know, it remains to be seen that sometimes they are very effective in giving their advice to the president.
4:18 pm
this administration and its president does not really take advice that closely. so what difference they will make depends on the mix of people. president obama's job council was heavily criticized for being a pr front. people thought it was very hard to get their input and that sort of for him. but they were instrumental in the dodd frank legislation. so we really have to see what comes of this.>> we have one more question. you mentioned that the intel had the when he resigned said he called on all leaders to call -- condemn white supremacist. i resign because i wanted to make progress. is this part of the problem with some of these ceos is that they don't want to have their companies and their brands to be possibly tainted by being with an administration who now seems to be lending some support to
4:19 pm
white supremacist?>> yes. they made this decision to leave the council because they were getting pressure from employees, shareholders, and customers. that is what ceos care about. they want to do what is best for the company. when you decide after weighing this that leaving the president's counsel, giving up that access, giving up your input in the policymaking process, is worth it. that is a powerful statement. it is also a powerful statement when people like the ceo of pepsi, who has been so critical of the president is still not willing to leave. that means that she thinks they can get something done that is good for her company. >> that does not even count the people who left because the president pulled out of the climate change accord in paris. thank you so much for your time. we really appreciate it. >> thank you. an overview of her plans and priorities for the university.
4:20 pm
she said it includes rebuilding a sense of community and belonging among students, faculty, and staff. they plan to reclaim berkeley's legacy is home of the free speech movement. >> i feel we're going to have a free speech year at berkeley in which we are creating multiple opportunities to engage the issue of free speech. as i'm sure everyone in this room knows, the protections that our constitution affords to free speech are extensive, more extensive than any other liberal industrialized democracy. >> she went on to say that she would like to see the berkeley free speech movement to be done through a planned series of events, forms, and debates. a little hello to rosemary orozco. our first hello for the afternoon. hopefully there's better clearing outside of your area today. a little bit more sunshine. temperatures came up.

>> during the wild news conference today, he says that his economic agenda will help to heal the racial divide here in the united states. tensions are heightened after what happened in charlottesville. for more on this. i'm talking with tom vaccaro. what you have to say about believing that it will help smooth over the racial divide? >> it couldn't be more historically relevant. for, we couldn't have been more divided coming out of the civil war and reconstruction. we and millions of immigrants coming. by 1900, our country had calm down, why? because our economy had grown over 400%. during the past 12 and 13 years, we have grown at 4%. would have long-term economic stagnation, dropout rates for la unified high school for minorities is around 60%.
4:34 pm
if you don't have opportunity, you anger and division. it is prolonged and combined with fanning the flames, so you get. >> how does it compare with what you saw in virginia? they had torches, they stand for hate and biggest tree -- bigotry and racism. what is a have to do with the economy? >> it is like a losing baseball team that wants to start blaming each other. you so the seeds of discontent and then you have people like this taking advantage of the situation. >> what you mean, people like this?'s people like white nationalists who don't even know what a nazi is. that is how ill-informed and troubling they are. that is how messed up they are. so they come into a bad situation and take advantage of
4:35 pm
it. they are opportunists. they want coverage. i wish there was a way not to cover them. i understand why they are a story, but they are feeding off of this. they feed off discontent. throughout history, it is not like -- opportunities come across all the time to do the wrong thing. there performing. we need to put them down. but i tell you this, and they wrote about in the book, if we keep up with the current 2% growth rate for the next 12 years, we will be reporting far worse than we are today. we have to get back to. when kennedy and reagan were elected, he had very divided nation's. but they've put forth economic measures to put people back to work. >> would you like to see two do? >> what should've happened on
4:36 pm
january 22 is that we should have had tax reform. the economy would be responding much better. as for what we should do today, i've said this too many times, the republicans in congress need to do their freaking job. with the president should do is say that we must be debtor -- do better as a nation. i will not tolerate top -- files we will follow up. but the congress needs to put forth an economic agenda. he should set a national goal, saying, help me create 10 million jobs the next 2 years. let's work on this together.>> the president also -- often touts his economic agenda. the employment rate is really low. the sock -- stock market is surging. bringing all these jobs. still there is discontent. >> there is. but you can't get rid of it overnight. this is been going for a long time. the brexit vote happen after 20
4:37 pm
years of almost no growth in britain. we had a 12 or 13%. once you so that much discontent and don't educate people over that period of time, they become vulnerable to opportunists. this white nationalists. i hate even saying the word, because it is just ridiculous what they are claiming to be and who they are. their horrible. they are just opportunists. we need leadership. when summer comes out and says we need to join the fight on one side, that is not a national leader. our president needs to say that we have much bigger goals than this. we're going to stand for something in this country. if he does this, he can begin to go forward. but congress has to show up. there has been internet outrage over what took place in charlottesville this past weekend with a grassroots effort to publicly shame those who participated in the march. earliest -- earlier today, jennifer lawrence astor 16 million facebook followers to
4:38 pm
help track down the people who participated. the term is called "doxxing". for more that, i am joined by alan brownstein, a professor at uc davis. let's get back to the root of all of this. what is allowed under the first amendment. you can be a racist, you can be a nazi, you can protest with a permit, there's nothing illegal about that, right? >> the problem is when you get into hate speech. that is not illegal, either. that is protected speech. >> the general operating principle under the first amendment is that all speech is protected speech.>> so where do we cross? >> hate speech is not one of the protected classes. >> defined that. where the distinctions here? >> unprotected speech would include incitement, very narrowly defined.
4:39 pm
threats. obscenity. but hate speech is not a legal category in the united states constitutional law. it is simply another kind of evil bad speech. under our system of constitutional law, we don't suppress bad speech. we respond to it and criticize it. the constitutionally appropriate remedy is more speech and good speech. not government sanctioned. >> i want to get your opinion on the concept of "doxxing". we have participants carrying torches, nazi flags, all of that. these are people who. -- jobs. summer college students going to school. and now their pictures are being circulated. some of them have been identified online and some of them have been fired from their jobs. is that legal for people to publicly shame somebody else 
4:40 pm
online to try to get this kind of action?>> this does not involve constitutional law at all. the free speech clause of the first amendment only protects you against government interference. private interference of speech is an entirely different matter. you would have to identify some statute or illegal regulation that protects people against having this information distributed and disclosed. but these people are marching in a public area. they have gone to a march where they know that they will have a lot of media attention. it is not as if they are doing anything that in any shape or form is anonymous. so it is pretty hard to argue that their images are being circulated violates privacy concerns. they are acting in a very public way.
4:41 pm
there are expressing their views in a public way. >> we have a all the time when we are expressing views in a public place. they say that want to be on tape, but the argument is that we are out in public and we can shoot anything that we can see at a public location. but going that step further when you say, this is joe blow works at this particular company who participated in this event. then that is a different situation where you're trying to get the company to fire that person or take some sort of punitive action. >> again, if the argument is that this kind of not really a boycott, but an attempt to convince accompany to fire people who are engaged in hateful conduct, if the argument is that that is somehow unlawful, you have to identify the statute or regulate -- regulation that is being violated. i don't see that there is such a statute. or regulation.
4:42 pm
there's nothing that protects you when you engage in this kind of public hateful behavior. there's no protection for people coming to your boss and say that they don't want to do business with someone who hires a person who hates people like me because of my race or because of my religion. or because of my sex. so again, you would have to identify some statute or regulation that provides protections to individuals against this kind of behavior. it is certainly not a constitutional law issue. the content -- auspicious completely silent on whether or not these activities are lawful or not. >> something for people to think about if they decide to take part in some of these activities knowing that our cameras there and if they want to keep their jobs, their taking a risk. professor. brownstein from uc davis. thank you so much for your
4:43 pm
time. we really appreciate it. >> thank you for having me. a new study making a sobering prediction for california. we talk live with one of the study's authors about the reason there is a looming shortage of doctors. a bit warmer over the bay area this afternoon. the trend is continuing as you get into the rest of the business week. we will tell you we can expect, including your bay area weekend, coming up. ktvu fox 2 complete bay area news coverage. >> he deserves better than this. a families impossible choice. >> either have to dig them up or i will not be with my family for eternity. we ask how this can happen. wednesday on the 10:00 news.
4:44 pm
4:45 pm
4:46 pm
a new report suggest that california will be in desperate need of primary care doctors. the report says that this will result in more people visiting the emergency room for minor health conditions. joann is the co-author of the study. how big of a shortage are we talking about? >> we're talking about a shortage of primary care providers of about 12 to 17% by 2030. it is a pretty significant range. >> it is. if your tongue by the number of people. what does your research show is behind the expected shortage? >> a lot of it is that we are not graduating enough primary- care providers, especially physicians. if we look at the data over the next 15 years, we are expected to have fewer doctors by 2030 than we have today. we can fill a lot of that gap with nurse practitioners and physician assistants, who also provide a very care at really high quality, but we probably
4:47 pm
also have to be graduating more of them were thinking about how to make it easier for them to provide primary care and do everything that they are trying to do. >> taking a step back again, what is behind a shortage in the number of people graduating? you know, i think it is that californians rely very heavy for mary -- many decades on having healthcare providers moved to california because it is an attractive state to live in. it is also an excel -- expensive state. we don't have enough residency programs to train doctors after they finish medical school. mostly they are in their late 20s and that is when they decide where to settle down. if they do the residency in california, they are more likely to stay here. >> we talk with a number of great medical schools in california has here. what can be done about all of this? >> i think we need to focus on our medical education and the
4:48 pm
residency programs. try to have more of those that focus on primary care and are taking care of people in the areas with the biggest shortages, such as the central valley. we also need to think about how to use nurse practitioners and physician assistants more efficiency. which could be part of the scope of practice regulations, which are behind those of other states. >> some startling statistics there. thank you.>> my pleasure. we're checking again with rosemary to see how things look outside. >> another mild day along the bay area, but temperatures came up for most. it is already returning inside the bay. was take a look at the golden gate bridge there. folks on the move this afternoon. gray skies overhead. another view different from san francisco as you look toward the east. you can see the low cloud cover in the fog already starting to move back and. the system that provided us with a cool yesterday has moved off to the east and in its
