4:15 pm
he called biden's speech in iowa today, "boring" adding, "our country will do poorly with him." this after president trump took a dig at hopefuls sanders and warren suggesting the gunmen who killed in dayton this week and supported them in the election . >> he supported bernie sanders, i understood, antifa, elizabeth warren, i understood. has nothing to do with president trump. >> reporter: senator sanders responded in a tree, calling the president a racist and a zeno phone, calling on him to changes tone when it comes to immigration, a reference to the apparent automation behind the steep weekends deadly shooting in el paso. mckee put together some kind of target list. >> reporter: he also went after walking joaquin castro. >> the list screams like the dayton ohio shooters list. right?
4:16 pm
when a radical left-wing politician was polling at about 0% and does this for either a tension or a call to action, it is pretty scary. >> reporter: castro doubled down on his sweet this morning, urging donors to think twice about where the money is going a lot of the shootings over the weekend. steve rappaport, fox news. want to talk more about what is happening in washington and with president trump right now. in light of these mass shootings. for more on this, let's bring in lauren wright, lecturer at princeton new york university joining us by phone. thanks for coming on today. let's first start with the president's tone. we heard the president yesterday in his speech. he was very measured, condemning racism, condemning white supremacy. today, as he visits these two grieving communities, he's back at it on twitter, feuding with democrats. you know, do you think he is ever going to really tone down the rhetoric that we hear from him?
4:17 pm
>> that is right. now, i don't think he is going to. i think this is his style and the thing is, even when the president gives a speech like yesterday which many people saw as a fairly presidential speech, as far as he goes back to double as he condemns racism, white nationalism and white supremacy. but when you accompany that with personal attacks and racially charged attacks him as he has in the past few weeks, it is just not credible no matter how sincere and how understanding the speech you are giving is. what he is experiencing is not only his tendency to sort of shoot himself in his own feet but it is a public lack of trust with the credibility of his words. >> and those words, at times, as you say, sort of ring hollow for some people in this country. a lot of people were calling for president trump to stay away from dayton and from el
4:18 pm
paso following these mass shootings. we know he was greeted today by protesters. do you think, roaring that was lauren, it was the right thing for the president to show up today? >> yes i do believe it is important for president's to show up after a tragedy nowhere no matter how the political climate is. for those people in the hospital who are so wounded and their families so traumatized, it does call attention to the event, it does emphasize that the president cares and the white house cares and the country's eyes around this town and this tragedy and these families. so i do think it is important that the president went, even though he was met with protests and much of that is, again, his fault because of the heated rhetoric but it is good that he went. >> let's talk now about the debate over gun control that is want to get wrapped up as it always does following mass shootings like this one like we
4:19 pm
continue to see in this country and of course, there are growing calls for tougher gun laws in this country. we know that there is a bill that the house passed earlier this year that would require universal background checks for gun purchases. the president seemed to indicate that he believes there may be an appetite for that kind of legislation. do you think we are going to see a vote on the kind of bill? >> well, mitch mcconnell put it on the calendar but people aren't coming back from recess to vote on this which is not really a good sign. the problem with comprehensive gun-control reform and this is what we have seen for decades, is that the new cycle moves so quickly that people who don't own guns and are not constantly engaged in this debate tend to forget about these events and it is so sad but we start talking about other things and guns become less salient of an issue for people who don't own them and are not part of a
4:20 pm
conversation every day and have not been personally affected by these tragedies. but for gun owners, alex, it is exactly the opposite. they feel that legislation of any kind, no matter whether it seems like common sense or republican-supported or not, threatens their rights and they are extremely active in this debate so those voices drown out the voices of people who say they want reform but just don't care about the issue as much as people who are gunowners . >> as you point out, the focus tends to shift over time. we have to leave the conversation there. that is lauren wright, lecturer at princeton university. thank you for coming on . >> thanks, alex. meteorologist, mark tamayo with the first check of the weather. >> a bit of a drop of her numbers today across a good portion of the bay area. cooling trend will continue thursday. outside right now, live camera with more camera over portions of san francisco with lingering fog patches. here's the overall weather story. you can see temperatures

4:25 pm

4:26 pm
u.s. agricultural products. china set the rate higher on tuesday and denied up accusations of manipulating its currency. president trump brushed off the hit to u.s. markets . >> ultimately, destroying douglas they are going to go much higher than it would have gone because china will double as was like killing us on unfair trade deals. >> reporter: the lower valley will make chinese imports less expensive, making american companies less profitable. the move is widely seen as china's contra to the new terror from the trump administration. to type despite his standoff, the president says he is open to a deal with the chinese . >> i will tell you this. china would like to make a deal very badly. >> reporter: it is possible the u.s. could respond in kind. the president has previously said he would like to see a weaker dollar to give the u.s. a greater vantage in global

4:33 pm
shootings in aurora, dayton and el paso, the issue of gun control is front and center in this country and there are a lot of ideas and a lot of potential solutions to try to end this gun violence epidemic. it is all top of mind right now for more on this issue, we are joined by elliott feynman with the group, national gun victims action council. elliott, i appreciate you coming on today. obviously, this is on the front burner right now, given what we have seen unfold in this country and you said your group has a plan that can end gun violence here in the u.s. within a year? it is kind of hard to believe. what are you suggesting? >> well, the key for any strategy of a solution is to understand the problem. everyone assumes that the problem is the nra and the money it spends but that is not what is causing the gun violence epidemic. there are 23 states where both senators vote against any gun violence, any gun safety law. these are states like montana and north dakota and alabama and texas, etc. and to get anything past at the federal level, you need 60 senators. but you've got 46, 23
4:34 pm
states means 46 senators so that leaves you only 54 so the math doesn't work for you can't get 60. >> so your group -- your group is calling on average americans to harness their buying power to sort of forced the hand of lawmakers and an act tougher gun laws. what exactly does that look like? >> well, the idea is the reality is that tourism is critical to every state. for example, in texas, tourism is 19% of the states revenue. it employs 600,000 people. we have got 170 million americans that polls show want to have gun safety laws. so 170 million people not going to these states, also not going or doing business with
4:35 pm
corporations that are headquartered in these states for example, in kentucky, which is one of the 23 states, toyota assembles most of its models so we have the power. we have the economic power of 170 million people and what we are doing is going to invite them to be part of what we do. and there is no question that applying this economic power is going to force them to change . >> what would you suggest for the average person who is watching this, thinking themselves, i'm fed up, i want to see something done, i want stricter gun laws in this country. what can the average person do? what are the sort of small steps they can take? >> what we would like them to they want us to notify them when this action begins. >> okay. >> we were going to start this
4:36 pm
in september or early october but these 3 horrific mass shooting's, none of which would have happened, by the way and i discussed this in my book, which will be coming out, none of these should have happened. and they all could have been prevented. well, two of the three. maybe the go where one, no but certainly the date and one could have been prevented and deal el paso one and the parkland one if we have the right kind of background check which we don't have. so that is another kind of aspect to this but there are 40 laws, if you can believe it, that need to be passed to end the gun violence epidemic . >> are you optimistic? that any new laws are going to be passed here? we have to wrap up but briefly, are you optimistic at all? >> yes because i have bundled all of these laws into the gun violence reduction act and we are going to get that introduced and until the laws
4:37 pm
are passed, we will economically damage these states, hit them where it hurts . >> we have to leave it there. best of luck to you in your effort. that is elliott feynman with the national gun victims action council. we appreciate you coming on . >> thank you. >> tomorrow night, ktvu will take an in-depth look at mass shootings in america. we will look at current gun laws on the books, the issue of mental health, and what lawmakers are doing to try to prevent more mass killings. we hope you can join us for ktvu's special report, guns in america. it airs tomorrow night at 10:30 p.m. right here on ktvu. hundreds of immigrants in the south pulled from their places of employment and taken out by ice agents. what we are learning about these massive raids. and betty the was we will take a look at forecast highs and maybe the possibility of a few sprinkles toward the weekend.

and mississippi, hundreds of i.c.e. agents carried out the largest immigration raid in a decade. they arrested almost 700 people. the agents targeted several food processing plants in and around the city of jackson, taking 680 immigrants into custody. they were put onto buses and taken to a military hangar to be processed for alleged immigration violations. >> while we do welcome folks from other countries, they have to follow our laws. they have to abide by our rules. they have to come here legally. or they should not come here at all. >> immigration officials say the rates today were planned well in advance and just so happened to coincide with president trump's visits to el paso and dayton today. those plants targeted were coke foods and pico foods. there is no word yet if any
4:42 pm
penalties the corporations will face for employing undocumented workers. here to talk more about this is a professor from santa clara university. thank you for coming on today. first of all, these raids in mississippi are happening today on the same day the president trump is visiting el paso, texas where we had a gunman over this past week and who apparently was targeting hispanics during a mass shooting there and obviously, president trump has been heavily criticized for some of his rhetoric, directed at hispanics in this country and at immigrants. what do you make of the timing of this major immigration enforcement operation? >> it is hard to say. major rates like this, especially doing them at workplaces, they require months of planning so it is highly likely that this date and this raid was planned well in advance. that said, it is very clear for the president that this
4:43 pm
creates, on his rhetoric about immigrants and the way it has been, that they are criminals that are stoking new sorts of fears and there is a significant disconnect right now between what he is doing in el paso and this activity in mississippi . >> what do you believe is the intended impact that the administration that immigration authorities want to have when they move into workplaces like they did today with such a large show of force? >> i think it is the show of force. it is the drama, the coverage
4:44 pm
on media, really it looks like the administration is "doing something about the problem. the reality, however is significantly different and these rates might, at one point, gather up hundreds of people but past experience with this type of activity during, for example, the george w. bush presidency tells you they have rated little overall impact. part of the reason is that while it is a one-time event that captures the public eye, when we think about the number of unlawfully present people in the country, it does not address that large program problem. secondly, the type of people you are likely to catch and these raids are not this so- called criminal gangsters that the president has been talking about. in terms of actual effect, there is little of that and third, this is going to and i think you will start to hear these stories in the coming days, it has the effect of separating families, children from parents, etc., although she you will see as parents get taken into custody and children are out at school, etc . >> something occurs to me. we talk all about so many people trying to come across the border right now, a number of, a large number of migrants
