7:03 am
presented by toyota. let's go places. >> welcome to cbs this morning on this fourth of july. i'm jeff glor, happy fourth. >> happy independence today. charlie rose and gayle king are off and overnight north korea claimed it successfully missile that could reach the u.s. kim jong-un celebrating the test. it is still assessing the launch but calls it an intermediate range missile. >> it flew nearly 600 miles after the launch. it reached an altitude of more than 1,500 miles before landing in the sea of japan. the u.s. pacific command said it tracked the missile for 37 minutes. independent scientists say it could have reached alaska.
7:04 am
after the launch president trump apparently took aim at kim on twitter. the president asked does this guy have anything better to do with his life? we're in beijing with the test that could be a major change in the standoff with north korea. ben, good morning. >> reporter: 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 missile that could hit the united states and he may now be one step closer to making that happen. >> translator: north korea gleefully announced what it called an historic p event. a successful test of this intercontinental ballistic missile. 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
7:05 am
demonstrated its growing capabilities. at a military parade this spring it showed off missile canisters believed to contain icbms but it is still not known if they've been able to miniaturize a war head to fit on top of those weapons. an expert on nuclear weapons policy. >> this is really more about containment? >> there's no way north korea is going to abandon its nuclear we tons. in the near term it is impossible. >> reporter: president trump said in his tweets perhaps china will put a heavy move on north korea and end this nonsense once and for all. china may not be so willing to help it is furious at the united states after a u.s. navy warship passed in the
7:06 am
>> 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. >> thank you very much from beijing. this missile launch had just before 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. chris is in washington. good morning. >> reporter: the president was briefed late last night on the missile launch. just a day earlier he spoke with china's president about containing the program.
7:07 am
president trump told the chinese president the united states is prepared to act on its 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. 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 address russian meddling in the u.s. elections. also in washington, cbs news senior national security contributor, a former acting and deputy director of the cia. 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?
7:08 am
>> jeff, it will take several days for the intelligence 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 the 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 fourth. his first nuclear test back in 2006 was on july fourth. he seems to think that it has a particular psychological impact on us doing something on july fourth. it obviously does not. it probably gets less news than
7:09 am
he would like on july fourth. we used to joke at cia that the only thing doing this on july fourth is ruin the holidays of intelligence analysts. 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 you thought the best thing to do would be to ignore the north korean president. the 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
7:10 am
neighbors. he's got short range missiles, he has had a lot more time to 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. >> thank you for joining us, mike. >> 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
7:11 am
was closed. >> reporter: good morning. for the first time this holiday weekend the public will be allowed inside this state park. govern nor christie has an official summer residence but over the weekend those images of him sun byte bathing 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 residents. >> reporter: a last minute budget deal monday night. it calls for an overall of new jersey's largest health insurer and 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. >> christie and his family had
7:12 am
almost ten miles of 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 dlieutenant govern governor. >> he was on the beach for 45 minutes and back in trenton that day. >> reporter: a blunt message for the governor, get the hell off the beach. an apparent jab. >> i think christie should be ashamed of himself. >> reporter: christie whose job approval rating has sunk to 15% was ridiculed on line. his photo was used as a reminder
7:13 am
of the bridge gate 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. >> thank you. massachusetts state police are investigating a taxi crash that hurt ten leading cab drivers at boston's airport. it jumped the curb of an outdoor rest area for drivers. state police believe the crash was unintentional. the injured drivers were taken to hospitals with minor to serious injuries. forces in syria are marking an important milestone. the fighters broke through a key defensive wall and entered the old city of raqqa. american led coalition struck
7:14 am
holes in the wall, letting fighters through. >> reporter: just one part of this country's bloody civil war. amongst the groves of northern syria, beside a deserted village that's been pummelled by artillery lies one of the front lines in the world. this area is under the control of those 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.
7:15 am
backed forces told us foreign influence has wreaked chaos on his country. things could get more complicated. we might be here for another ten years. this con friflict is already complicat complicated. last month it shout shot down a regime fighter jet. in the nearby city, they're battle scarred. in six years of civil war it's changed hands three times. a man who supports his 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 grichb odriven out is question. as to how long they'll stay here in syria to deal with whatever
7:16 am
comes next. a tweet from president trump intensified a global debate about a british infant and the limits of medical care. 11 month old suffers from a rare and incurable genetic disease. a london hospital wants to remove child support. charlie is outside the hospital with the family's fight to bring him to the u.s. good morning. >> 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
7:17 am
pope francis and president trump 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. >> 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? >> 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. >> thank you, charlie. flames and thick smoke from a large wildfire shut down 26 miles of a major highway in nevada. this fire quickly spread to interstate 80. it's already scorched at least

it is tuesday, july 4th, 2017. welcome back to "cbs this morning." ahead the missile test that could make north korea's missile program a threat to the united states and tesla promising to make cheaper electric cars. how that could change the auto industry. but first here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> this this truly was a true icbm the threat has really gotten more serious. he has had a history of doing provocative acts on july fourth. he seems to think that it has a particular psychological impact on us. it obviously does not. >> for the first time this
8:01 am
holiday weekend the public will be allowed inside this state park but over the weekend those images of him sunbathing while this beach was closed caused a lot of backlash. >> state police are investigating a taxi crash that hurt ten leading cab drivers near the boston airport. and flames and thick smoke from a wildfire shut down 26 miles of a major highway in nevada. >> watch independence day. never get tired of that. >> there's a day when the world declared in one voice, we will not go quietly into the night. we will not finish without a fight. we're going to live on. we're going to survive. today we celebrate our independence day.
8:02 am
welcome back. i'm jeff glor. charlie, gayle and norah are off and north korea claims it has successfully tested an intercontinental ballistic missile. it reached an altitude of about 1,500 miles. kim jong celebrated what would be the first icbm test. the u.s. military calls it an intermediate missile. president trump responded on twitter saying does this guy have anything better to do with his life? the missile was launched from a north koreaian base and it landed in the sea of japan. >> reporter: for now the u.s. military is sticking with its assessment that this was an intermediate range missile, not an intercontinental ballistic missile but intelligence analysts are still studying the details.
8:03 am
if this turns out to be an ibcm this could likely become a fourth of july crisis. kim jong-un has been saying his country was capability to test a missile capable of striking the united states, however it's still not known if they have a miniaturized nuclear war head that would fit on an icbm. this missile flew for about 40 minutes and reached an altitude of 1,500 miles. it splashed into the sea of japan about 1,600 mile from the launch site. experts say it could reach alaska, but not the continental u.s. or hawaii. if this was an icbm, the next question becomes what will the u.s. do about it? the pentagon has already prepared options for shows of force in south korea including the test firing of u.s. missiles based there. but the options i'm told stop short of actually using military
8:04 am
force against north korea. >> thank you. north korea tested that missile 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 with north korea. the white house said on sunday that the two leaders agreed the korean peninsula should be nuclear free. ben has more this morning. >> 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 north korea. if you go back to april, they seemed form a relationship and president trump went out of his way to compliment the chinese leader but that relationship seems to have taken a negative
8:05 am
turn. beijing is upset and issued sanctions on a chinese bank that it accuses of aiding north korea. xi met with putin and we're told they did discuss the threat. they're urging all country to show restraint and it wants the u.s. to start talking to north korea to try to ease tensions. >> thank you, ben. tesla's long awaited and more affordable electric car could roll off the assembly line as early as friday. the new model three passed the requirements two weeks ahead of schedule. the first 30 cars will be delivered to customers on july 28th. the company expects to produce 20,000 cars each month.
8:06 am
tim joins us this morning. okay. tesla doesn't really mass produce cars. what does this mean for consumers and do you think they can pull it off? >> this is the make or break moment. the roadster and the first truly mass produced affordable car, priced in the mid $30,000. it's a great looking ev and it should be a lot of fun to drive and those are things that we don't see in the market right now. >> this is a lot of pressure on this, is there not? based on where they've been and where they want to go -- >> yeah, tesla's been making very high priced vehicles with good range and good performance b but again, not something everybody can afford. they needed a mass model pruktd and this is what this is meant to be. >> how realistic are those numbers? >> ultimately they've done a lot
8:07 am
of things to make that possible. the model 3 they've really simplified things, streamlined the production process and enabled them to build a lot more of these cars. >> the battery has been the issue with the other production recently, hasn't it? >> right. so they've built this massive factory producing hundreds of thousands of batteries for them but there's still material shortages they need to work around and other things that could stunt that growth a little bit it's optimistic but i think we eelt 'll be seeing tesla bui this car. >> i just got to say i do like that third row. but you know, the fact that it's electric, do you think there's enough of a consumer base of the people who really want to invest in this? >> i think there will be going forward. most evs have been priced $40,000 and up and those are two
8:08 am
compromises that you need to get over. with a car that's priced under $40,000 and can do over 200 miles of range, ultimately it's priced to other cars. the average price of a car in the u.s. is $32,000. >> what do you think of the evs you've driven so far? >> they're fun to drive. the reliability is generally pretty good, but one of the big things that a lot of people don't think about is service. there's really no oil changes. no transmission problems, so they're nice to live with too. >> as long as you've got that charging station. thank you. we appreciate it. the number of teens working traditional summer jobs has plummeted. ahead, why he says it's not a sign of generational lazine

8:15 am
summer job was a tennis instructor, but that's not the focus you're focused on. one of them is education. why is education hurting teen work? >> i think there's a sense that when you look at statistics it seems like teenagers are being lazy. teenagers used to work during the summer and now they're not. 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 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 investing in their future rather than working for that near minimum wage. >> is that a good thing the fact that they're in the classroom? >> i think it's a good thing. there are all sorts of studies
8:16 am
that there are skills that you can get with a summer job, but investing in your education is also responsible. and there's all sorts of evidence that suggest 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 not a bad thing. >> it's good as long as 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, they're not necessarily -- the kids want to pursue the education instead. >> two interesting things happen. first 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 or in leisure and hospitalities that used to be the province of the teens during the summer. the minimum wage has increased a little bit recently and some people think that there might be a job that you give a 17-year-old for say $5 an hour but when the minimum wage is 10,
8:17 am
$15 an hour you say okay, i'm mott going to hire a teenager to work this job. >> retail, we've seen a decline on brick and mortar stores. has that had an impact? >> the u.s. economy has lost 80,000 retail jobs since october of last year. that's more than the total number of steelworkers in america. so you have enormous disruption happening in retail and i wouldn't rule that out. >> that was my first summer job. >> stick around because jeff's first job was making sandwiches. >> hoagies. yes. >> there's a difference. thank you for joining us. well, taking a ride on a bull takes a lot of courage but it might not be the most terrifying experience for one top rider. >> no fear of riding a bull but terrified of riding a roller coaster. how does that work? >> i don't know. my heart goes up in my throat and my stomach goes in my throat

8:34 am
the declaration that becomes the 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
8:35 am
don't know. 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.
8:37 am
>> they discovered the room in which sally hemmings may have lived. there's still a lot of work to be done to ascertain what exactly went on there, but background, sally hemmings is 30 years younger than thomas jefferson and he meets her when she's 14 essentially. she's taking care of his own daughter. she's sent as a 14-year-old with a 9-year-old girl on a ship across the sea. very different times, of course and that's when he first meets her. sally hemmings is jefferson's late wife's half sister. we have to remember that this is how close these connections were. this is a human face. that's why i wrote this book, "in the shadow of liberty," to put a human face on slavery. >> what about betsy ross? we talk about the american flag. she was the one who sewed the original stars and stripes. is that true?
8:38 am
>> washington got his cuffs sewed on by betsy ross. she did sew flags for philadelphia -- or pennsylvania, state flags for their navy. more interesting as a man you've never heard of, francis, he took credit for the design of the flag as we know it. he submitted a bill to congress asking for payment for his services. he wanted a quarter of the public wine. he didn't even know there was the public wine, but they turned him down because he was already on the payroll. they didn't want double dipping. >> no pun intended. >> but these are the dates behind the battles and the speeches and these were real people doing real things. >> thank you so much for joining us. well, a teenager takes on a one ton beast in a battle of
