it's a major test for republicans this week. gop leaders are pushing for a vote on health care, but some senators within their own ranks are reluctant to rush ahead. plus, president trump appears to acknowledge russia meddling in the 2016 election, but cast the blame for doing nothing on president barack obama. and at least six people are dead after a tourist boat capsizes in columbia. this morning the search continues for dozens of passengers considered missing. good morning. it's monday, june 26. well, the future of health care
for millions hangs in the balance this morning with a july 4th deadline looming. a vote on senate health care overhaul is in question. at the same time the congressional budget office is expected early this week, which will detail how it impacts health care enrollment and the nation's finances. the white house was in sell mode over the weekend. the vice president tweeting "before summer is out, we'll repeal and replace obama care with a system based on personal responsibility, free market competition, and state-based reform." while in an interview with fox, the president reflected on the challenge of passing an overhaul republicans have promised for years. >> health care is a very complicated subject from the standpoint that you move it this way and this group doesn't like it, you move it a little bit over here, and a very narrow path. honestly, you know, nobody can be totally happy. even without the votes. forget about votes. this has nothing to do with votes. this has to do with picking a plan that everybody is going to
like. i would like to say love, but like. we have a very good plan. we have a few people that are i think you could say modestly. they're not standing on the roof. >> are republican senators doing enough to get that health care bill through? >> i think so. you know, i have great relationships with most of the people in the senate with, as you know, most of the people in the house. i think i really work very hard. i made a lot of great friendships with the people in the house. a lot of them. same thing in the senate. there are four very good people. they're friends of mine. i don't think they're that far off. you know, famous last words, right? >> the president reflected on the tension between him and his predecessor as he tries to strip out parts of president obama's namesake health care law. >> how frustrating is it to have former president obama out there leading the resistance? >> i think -- i don't think he is leading it. he put out a small statement. i don't see that leading it. other people are leading. >> some people might say the lever of anger is unprecedented,
but also unprecedented for a former president to come out on facebook. recently he said your bill, mr. president, not a health care bill. it's a massive transfer of wealth. it's going to harm americans. it's mean. what do you say to the former president? >> he actually used my term, mean. that was my term. i want to see -- i want to see -- i speak from the heart. that's what i want to see. i want to see a bill with heart. >> the bill's future is uncertain in the senate with five republican defections already so far. senator bernie sanders, he spent the weekend denouncing the bill during a series of rallies. the "don't take our health care tour" made stops in ohio, pennsylvania, and west virginia.
>> i'm sorry to say he wasn't telling the truth. at a time when so many people are hurting, this legislation will cause devastating pain to millions of american families. the truth is that this so-called health care bill is nothing more than a massive transfer of wealth from working families to the very, very rich. >> we also have on twitter former presidential candidate hillary clinton that said, "if republicans pass this bill, they are the death party." senator sanders posted thousands of people will die if the republican health care bill becomes law. republican senator orrin hatch retweeted sanders, adding "the brief time when we were not accusing those we disagree with of murder was nice while it
lasted." joining us from washington is politico's daniel lipman, co-author of the political playbook. thanks for joining us. you have five republican senators in opposition, and a group actually tied to the president is hitting back at one of them. dean heller of nevada. talk to us about that. how effective is the strategy going to be. what do they have planned? >> they're going to spend $1 million in both digital ads and tv ads starting this week. they're saying he is violating the promise to revote the obama care law. a lot of people think in the republican party believe that this will backfire on that pro-trump group because mcconnell advisors say if you really are shooting at people in your base, you're trying to undermine fellow republican senators. that doesn't do the party any good for 2018. >> the opposition is not just kind of from centrist or
moderate republicans. it's also come from some within the right of the republican party. in fact, senator ron johnson of wisconsin had an op ed in the "new york times" in which he writes the bill's defenders will say it repeels obama cares, taxes, reduces -- it leaves in place the preexisting condition rules that drive up the cost of insurance for everyone. >> it seems like every day the opposition to bill from republicans has grown. there seems to be very few paths for this bill to get passed by that july 4th recess. when you see your own conservative republican senators write op eds in the "new york times", that is not a good sign for this -- the bill's chances. because it's very hard to thread the needle in terms of winning
over people like ron johnson who wants the bill to be more conservative, to medicaid more and moderate republicans who if the bill gets more draconian, then they will never get on board, and you will lose more moderate republicans. >> and the republicans have kind of put themselves in a box because they want this voted on hopefully by july 4th weekend. we'll see how that plays out. thank you. president trump has acknowledged russian meddling in the 2016 u.s. election. it comes in responding to a washington post report on the obama administration's five-month debate over how they should respond to the meddling. in fact, the post reported that president obama deliberated options, and that's everything from cyber attacks on russian infrastructure, the release of intelligence that might embarrass vladimir putin, and sanctions that officials said could crater the russian economy. in the end the president settled with a package of modest punishments on december 29th. on friday president trump tweeted "just out. the obama administration knew
far in advance of november 8th about election meddling by russia. did nothing about it." then writing in all capital letters, "why?" then he wrote, "since the obama administration was told well before the 2016 election that the russians were meddling, why no action? focus on them, not t." >> i just heard today for the first time that obama knew about russia a long time before the election, and he did nothing about it. nobody wants to talk about that. the cia gave him information on russia a long time before they even, you know -- before the election, and i hardly see it. it's an amazing thing to me. in other words, the question is if he had the information, why didn't he do something about it? he should have done something about it. but you don't read that. it's quite sad.
>> but president trump has repeatedly denied russia's role in the 2016 election, disparaging the efforts to punish russia. last year nbc news reported that president trump received his first intelligence briefing on august 17th about russia's efforts to interfere in the election, but continued to doubt their findings even after the intelligence community went public on october 7th. take a listen. >> i don't think anybody knows it was russia that broke into the dnc. she's saying russia, russia, russia, but i don't -- maybe it was. it could be russia, but it could also be china. it could also be lots of other people. it also could be somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds. okay? any time anything wrong happens, they like to say the russians. she doesn't know if it's the russians doing the hacking. maybe there is no hacking. >> hacking is very interesting. once they hack, if you don't catch them in the act, you're not going to catch them. they have no idea if it's russia or china or somebody. it could be somebody sitting in a bed someplace.
personally, it could be russia. i don't really think it is, but who knows? i don't know either. theyent do know, and i don't know. >> i think we have to get on with our lives. i think computers have complicated lives very greatly. i think the age of computer has made is where nobody knows exactly what's going on. >> trump, again, called for the country to "move on" after the obama administration announced its res profit measures against the russian government on december 29th, and when russian president sclad mere putin announced he would not react until after obama left office, trump tweeted "great move on delay by v-putin. i always knew he was very smart." later, the washington post reported that incoming national security advisor michael flynn had discussed sanctions with russia's ambassador, and yahoo news record trump's early efforts to ease sanctions imposed by the obama administration. and just on thursday the "new york times" reported that the trump administration was working to water down new sanctions on russia that passed the senate earlier this month on a 97-2
vote. it's a question that is often asked brsh are the president's tweets official records. the white house used tweets as an official statement in a response to i request from congress. bipartisan leaders of the house russia investigation had asked the white house to provide any materials relating to recordings of conversations with fired fbi director james comey. a prospect raised by trump's tweet last month that comey had "better hope there were no tapes of conversations." well, one day before the deadline to respond, the president posted on twitter that he did not make any recordings, but republican congressman mike conway said tweets were not a sufficient response. the white house put the tweets in a letter calling it the president's statement regarding the matter. the president has left open the possibility that another party might have recorded the conversation, but the white house would not say whether they are looking into that matter. >> has the president asked the intelligence agencies if he -- if they have any tapes of his conversations? does he know if they have that?
does he have any evidence to back up that suggestion that he put out in the tweet? >> i'm not going to comment on his conversations of his intelligence community. >> moving overseas to pakistan, officials there are trying to identify the scores of people killed sunday morning when an overturned oil tanker exploded as crowds rushed to the scene to collect the leaking fuel. local villagers in the eastern region of punjab were using buckets and shopping bags to scoop up the available oil after the tanker truck blew a tire and flipped over. 45 minutes later the vehicle burst into flames engulfing the growing crowd nearby. witnesses there account -- witness accounts put the crowd numbers in the hundreds before the explosion. officials say many of the victims, including at least 20 children, they were burned beyond recognition. the exact cause leading to the fuel tanker explosion is still being investigated. over to columbia, authorities there saying at least six people have died, and 31 are still missing after a tourist boat capsized there on sunday. dramatic video captured the tourist boat sinking in minutes as a large group of people
gathered on the roof of other boats rushing in and surrounding a larger vessel. rescuing 133 people on board. officials say there was no reported registry of how many people were on the boat, but they believe it was carrying about 160 passengers when it b reportedly overcrowded. mike pompeio weighs in on the rise of intelligence leaks and what the president trump administration is doing to stop it. a wildfire forces 1,000 people out of their homes, but the weather today could help them contain the blaze. keep it here, everybody.

that say trump is disinterested in intelligence briefings. >> i'm with the president nearly every day. we have 35 or 40 minutes on his schedule and it almost always runs long. great questions. he is a serious consumer of the product that the intelligence community delivers, and i appreciate that. president obama consumed his intelligence in a different way. president trump is incredibly demanding of the intelligence community and asks us incredibly difficult questions and then counts on myself and other leaders in the ic to deliver those answers for him. >> the worship of edward snowden and those who steal american secrets for the purpose of self-agrandizment or money or for whatever the motivation may be. it does seem to be -- i would say all of president trump's
government is incredibly focused on both stopping leaks of any kind from any agency and when they happen, pursuing them with incredible vigor. i think we'll have some successes both on the turn side that is stopping them from happening as well as on punishing those who we catch who have done it. >> the white house released a statement from the president, which sent "warm greetings to muslims as they celebrate eid al fitr. now to that fire we were talking about. thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes in utah as firefighters. they are attempting to contain numerous wildfires in the state near salt lake city. firefighters contained a wildfire that burned about 300 acres near american fort kenyon on sunday. in southwest utah firefighters there continue to battle the fire that has carried almost 43
charred -- charred almost 43,000 acres. authorities say that fire is about 8% contained. it has destroyed 13 homes so far. the utah blaze reportedly started more than a week ago by someone burning weeds. they estimate that fighting it has cost $7 million so far. let's get a check on your weather now with bill karins. are things cooling down out in the southwest now? >> after today. today is the last day of the extreme heat in the southwest. it's aiz maing we actually have more reports of more fires. this has been an epic historically long heat wave in the west, and it's a good thing we didn't get a lot of big blazes. you wouldn't want the firefighters out there in those conditions. this morning, wet weather goes. there's a complex of thunderstorms that's going through west texas. the only really big weather headline is the dangerous heat. excessive heat warning continues. by the way, we started this conversation with excessive heat going into last weekend. this is the longest duration excessive heat warnings they've ever had in las vegas.
this is kind of unprecedented stuff here. it will end as we throughout the day today. we're down to 11 million. phoenix to vegas, you're about 105 to 110 in vegas. phoenix 110 to 115. that's cool compared to how it's been lately. the other stories out there is the gorgeous air mass. this morning it's actually a little chilly. there are temperatures in the 40s in the northern plains. you'll warm it up this afternoon. gorgeous day. you don't get -- now they're heading to the peak of the summer. the humidity is low all the way down through the southeast. it's not until you get to florida that we get the thunderstorms and the high humidity. enjoy this beautiful monday morning from the mid-atlantic up through the ohio valley. great lakes through the northeast. it continues into tomorrow. 80 in d.c. low humidity and sunny. should be perfect. even into wednesday, we're not bad, guys. it's -- this is about as good as you get. if you chose this week to be on vacation on the east coast, you chose wisely. >> that is like the best -- >> clearly neither one of us have made that decision. >> although maybe we can e-mail quickly.

welcome back. it is the bottom of the hour. let's start with the morning's top stories. pakistani officials, they are working to identify the large number of people killed yesterday after an overturned oil tanker exploded as a crowd rushed together fuel leaking from the vehicle. eyewitnesss there estimate that several hundred people had gathered near the truck before
the explosion. officials say many of the victims, including at least 20 children, they were burned beyond recognition. the exact cause of the explosion is still being investigated. meanwhile, in columbia authorities say at least six people have died and dozens are still missing after a tourist boat capsized yesterday. dramatic video captured the boat sinking in minutes as a large group of people gathered on the roof of other boats where they were able to rescue 133 people on board. it's still unclear why the boat sank, but the ship was reportedly overcrowded. back at home trump has acknowledged russia meddling in the presidential election. in a series of tweets, the president criticized president obama saying he did nothing about moscow's interference. mr. trump's comments, they came on the heels of a washington post report on the obama administration's five-month debate over a response to russia's meddling. >> all right. back to our top story. majority leader mitch mcconnell hopes to push through a vote on health care overhaul this week, but the question if the senate
is the math when it comes to votes there and whether they would risk losing conservatives to gain moderates and vice versa? for the moment at least five republicans have said they can't back the bill. some conservatives are concerned it's not a full enough repeal of obama care, but there are others. others like dean heller of nevada. they're under pressure, heavy pressure, in fact, at home with re-election coming soon. >> the america first priorities will launch a seven figure ad blitz against heller, a member of the president's own party. as the washington post reports, other groups, they have already been up on the air there with ads like these. >> all right. let's get started. you're both over 50? >> yes. >> okay. that will cost you. >> why? >> the new health care bill in congress, if you are over 50, insurance companies can charge you five times more. it's an age tax. >> senator heller, when this happens, she isn't thinking about the health care bill in
congress. she isn't thinking that it will force her to choose between filling his prescriptions or paying their mortgage. she isn't thinking that when her premiums go up, they'll lose their health insurance, and she shouldn't have to. but you should, senator heller. >> now, other senators remain mum or are publicly undecided with concerns over everything from medicaid policy to planned parenthood funding. the unique issues in their states, in places like alaska, louisiana, in the gray area lisa murkowski, and senator susan collins remain just to name a few. >> i'm very concerned about the cost of insurance for older people with serious chronic illnesses and the impact of the medicaid cuts on our state government. the most vulnerable people in our society and health care providers such as our rural hospitals and nursing home most of whom are very dependent on
the medicaid program. >> it's hard to see how it gets passed this week. senator cornyn says the deadline is august 1 it's, and that time will not make things any easier. he may be right. the most recent keiser poll shows for the first time ipts support for the affordable care act has passed 50% while just 30% of americans report replacement plans. let's talk about this more in depth. joining us from washington again is politico's daniel lipman, co-author of the political playbook. good to talk to you once again. president trump acknowledging using the term "mean" to describe the house health care bi bill. >> republican leaders and rank-and-file members think that trump comment doubling down on
the mean reference to the house health care bill totally undermine their case for passing this bill because the senate health care bill makes more draconian medicaid cuts in some places. you know, why is president trump trashing his own party's health care bill and basically, you know, doing a whole lay-up for democratic groups and senators to say, well, the president who is the leader of the party and wants this bill passed said the house health care bill, which is closely tied to the senate one is mean, so why are we passing a mean bill in the first place? >> daniel, the democrats believe that the health care bill is somewhat of a coin toss at this particular point. they're not sure which way it will go. here's chuck schumer yesterday. take a listen. >> i think they have at best a 50-50 chance of passing this bill to get three senators to vote no, you can probably -- you can say yes. you can say no. it's probably 50-50. but the bill is just
devastating, and that's what's -- that's what's making it so hard for them to pass it. >> that's the minority leader there. talk to us about the majority leader, mitch mcconnell, in ermz it of how confident he is and other republican leaders are heading into this week. >> basically they have to lay out a positive argument. so far it's just about keeping their promise to voters saying that they wanted to pass this repeal bill, and there is no argument that this would help lots of people or even reduce premiums. they've always talked about how the skyrocketing premiums in obama care in many cases this would make that worse in terms of raising premiums. that's a hard argument to make. >> general, not a lot of time left, but i know your colleagues at politico, they have reporting
about one of the most powerful groups in in republican politics and the health care bill. tell us about that. >> sure. so the coke network held their summit in colorado springs this past weekend. one of the leaders of the group associated with the coke brothers said that the health care process has been humbling because they expected a full repeal and replace and we're almost at july, and we haven't seen that. they've said -- they've also said that tax reform is their biggest priority, and they are not not supporting right now the senate health care bill, and this is a group that's going to spend $300 million, $400 million in 2018. so far they're luke warm on that issue. >> all right, daniel lipman live in washington d.c. for us. thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you, guys. senate minority leader chuck schumer is responding to recent criticism of democrats leadership saying they are coming up with an economic platform for the party to run on in the future. in fact, the new york democrats said the agenda ez emerging out of talks with i wanted pent senator bernie sanders of
vermont, democrat joe manchin of west virginia and many others. >> this economic message platform is going to resonate. it's what we were missing, and it's not going to be baby steps. it's going to be bold. we're coming out with it this summer within a month you will see it, and democrats will try to pass it legislatively for a year and campaign on it in 2018. it's what we were missing in 2016, and in the past we're going to -- we know that. when you lose an election, you don't blame other people. you blame yourself. >> and workers at a carrier manufacturing plant in indianapolis, they are bracing for layoffs there next month. that's despite being told in december by then president-elect donald trump that he had worked out a deal to save 1,100 of their jobs. >> over 1,100 jobs. by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area of this plant, so the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number. >> but seven months later it turns out 600 of those jobs,
they are headed south of the border to monterey, mexico. this argdco to the president of the local union who says, "the jobs, they are still leaving. nothing has stopped." carrier did receive a $7 million incentive package from the state to keep the plant open, and employ roughly 1,000 people. the white house said friday that the job cuts in question, they were long planned and nothing new. this news comes a day after the ford motor company announced it will move production of its focus model to china months after pressure from the trump administration resulted in its cancelling its original plans to move the plant to mexico. let's turn now to business where japanese airbag maker takata has filed for bankruptcy stemming from lawsuit and recall costs. cnbc's villa marks joins us live. that airbag recall has been linked to the deaths of at least 14 people, but also having a massive toll on the corporation itself. >> yeah. i mean, it's been linked to deaths, and the real scandal is that over the years we've had success to really mask the truth
behind this recall, and the cause of this recall. it's going to be astronomically expensive. they're recalling 100 million air bags, potentially, and it seems like takata is unlikely to escape unsullied by this financially at least. they're looking to sell about $1.5 billion worth of assets to key safety systems. that's a u.s.-based chinese owned company. that will not be nearly enough to cover the losses of potential carmakers. if we talk about prime minister modi, he is going to be meeting with president trump later today. he was meeting with about 1 00 u.s. ceos over the course of the weekend, including tim cook from apple, jeff basos, jamie diamond. they all seem very positive about what he had to say. it's no great secret, of course, that the business climate, not particularly positive at the moment. another story we're watching when we're talking about tech ceos. the founder and the current ceo
of pandora, tim westergren, he has announced that he is going to be stepping down to the job. he start the company seven years ago. they've been struggling to attract advertisers, and as yet, no successor has been anointed. >> thank you for that. all right. still ahead, the top democrat in the senate takes a break from politics still. it was all caught on camera. >> awesome. plus, the southwestern u.s. looks for relief from the gripping heat. bill karins will say if cooler weather is on the way and the rest of your forecast. after the break.
