4:08 am
>> both the president and mitch mcconnell said they want to see this go to the floor of the senate for a vote before the midterm elections. so the question is like would this have an impact? do you see an impact on the election. >> well, absolutely just because when you talk about the supreme court, it's an issue that really mobilizes voters from both parties. both parties are trying to gin their voters up to get out to the polls before november. that's what it's about for both parties. so what you're going have is have this issue get a lot of attention. millions of dollars will be spent on advertising for both parties. conservatives especially. when you have both parties in congress, both houses of congreen hav the white house, you sort of face a disadvantage, and so the republicans want to use it to energize their voters, mobilize them, and get them out to the polls. california initiated a judgment
4:09 am
to prevent separating of families and reuniting kids within 30 days. how is that going to impact what the government is trying to do with the policy the president has said he likes many. >> it's unclear because it's not clear how the process is going to play out. and so it's unclear whether the administration would abide by this order. it's unclear whether they're going to fight in courts. also you don't necessarily have a solution from congress how to get all of this figured out. they left washington for their july 4th recess without passing any kind of immigration legislation. it's going to be interesting to see how this plays out over the next week because you're going to see a number of protests across the country. this weekend you're going to see a lot proef tests in a lot of different states. so could you see lawmakers from the republican signed the democratic side really come under pressure from constituents back at home to figure out some way to resolve this issue? >> is it your sense thatrethat t
4:10 am
epor what's ultimat feels like snuck up on everyone to the point where it became something that people were talking about over the last couple of weeks, but people weren't prepared for it. it's going to be interesting to see how this plays out and whether there's some kind of resolution to it. >> one of the big stories is trade war with the european union. gm has said they need to see what happens with regard to jobs. how significant is it? >> it's a huge move and also for symbolic reasons, right? it's a company from wisconsin, a pro-trump state. also a company that trump once lauded or highlighted and now what they're saying president has imposed mike be back firing a bit and creating come pli kags for us. they're not talking about potentially moving some jobs
4:11 am
overseas and you can bet there will other companies now that might have to deal with similar questions because this is what happens in trade wars. it has unintended consequences, all kinds of ripple effects that are hard to predicted. >> again, it makes you wonder if they're prepared. >> yeah. right before the summit with vladimir putin in finland. a lot to discuss. >> great to have you. tomorrow morning on face the asian, margaret brennan's guests will include senator richard blumenthal, democrat of connecticut. two-thirds of the areas will be dealing with temperatures ten to 20 degrees above average. in some places it will feel like it's over 100 degrees. in southeast montana friday, the severe heat and humidity triggered tornadoes which were captured on video in the small

4:15 am
office. >> reporter: on friday ramos said nothing as a judge ordered him to be held without bond. thursday's shooting appears to be the end of a long simmering grudge ramos held against the paper. a cording to court documents in 2012 ramos filed an unsuccessful defamation lawsuit against the paper and a columnist whoa wrote an article about allegations he harassed and threatened a former high school classmate. as the case moved through the maryland courts, ramos wrote on twitter that he was suing half the county and making corpses of kruptd careers and corporate entities nchl 2013 anne arundel police department investigated online threats ramos made against the "capital gazette." the investigating officer noted in the police report he did not believe ramos was a threat to the employees at the paper. ultimately the paper decided not to press charges because it would be like putting a stick in a beehive. attorney brennan mccarthy

4:55 am
video games. but last night it all ended when the last toys "r" us stores closed for the final time. toys "r" us was founded by charles lazarus in 1948. the company grew to become the biggest toy seller in america, with more than 800 store locations, but in march toys "r" us announced it would shutter its remaining stores, following years of financial struggles, increasing competition, and flagging sales. >> this is probably a story more about mismanagement over the course of a couple of decades, not just a digital story. it's not just amazon ate our business. it's that we did a deal with too much debt. we weren't smart enough to expand our online footprint fast enough. and we miss managed the process. ♪ i don't want to grow up i'm a toys "r" us kid ♪ >> reporter: as shelves began to

one-on-one chat with the president. you'll hear it and how he did it coming up next. for some of you your local news is next. the rest, stick around. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." researchers at the university of maryland found that uncivil behavior might be contagious and rudeness can breed more rudeness. helen fisher is a biological anthro poll cyst and research fell low at the kin city institute and is here to sort it all out. what is happening, helen, and why sit happening now? >> first of all, we're an animal evolved to be cooperateding. with don't have bighorns or fancy fangs or big claws. we survive by cooperating with each other. and when you get a provok tour who starts this process and snowballs into anger, once you get angry -- >> provok a tour, who are you speak of? >> probably trump. the other side has responded almost equally. when you get angry the basic

welcome to "cbs this morning: saturdy." i'm dana jacobson. >> i'm vlad duthiers. >> and i'm michelle miller. coming up this hour, we'll preview president trump's next big summit meeting with russian president vladimir putin. it's just over two weeks away in helsinki, finland. plus, they're the most endangered marine mammal in the world, with fewer than three dozen believed to be living in the wild. ahead, we'll join the effort to save this tiny creature before it's too late. and he graduated officer
5:01 am
training with his fell low soldiers at the height of world war ii. but he was denied the rank they earned, apparently due to racism. we'll meet the veteran and his family ahead. but first our top story this half hour, president trump gets ready to pick a nominee for the supreme court. cbs news has learned right now there will are two leading con tendsers, bret kavanaugh and amy coney barrett. >> the president aboard air force one told those he will announce his nominations on monday. he'll be interviewing candidates over the next coupling of days. >> he also plans to bring up russian interference in the 2016 election when me meets vladimir putin in finland. some say the meeting holds a promise for better relations between the two nations. others fear mr. trump may
5:02 am
embolden putin and could drive a wedge between the u.s. an its europeanal lies. here to discuss the summit is kimberly marten, professor of science at barnard college. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> thanks for coming back. >> in between the two, trump or putin, does one hold the advantage in diplomatic relations? >> no doubt putin does. he's a very clever man. i mean he's been in that position for so long and he's accomplished so much internationally. whereas, we know trump kind of got taken advantage of in his recent summit in north korea. he didn't seem to get much out of kim jong-un. >> even if he doesn't see it that way. >> he doesn't see it that way, but really the united states didn't get north korea to change much of its bank, but the u.s. has stopped its exercises with south korea right now. >> president trump said he's going to talk about russian
5:03 am
meddling. if russia denies it, is that just good enough? where do you go from there? >> it's not clear the summit itself can actually accomplish much on that, and we have to remember that obama had brought up the election meddling with putin back in september of 2016 and it did no good whatsoever because a month later what did the russians do? they released those podesta emails at a really crucial time when trump had accused -- or at mitted he had been engaged some behavior that didn't make him look too savory with women and the timing was that it was a russian employee, so what obama did earlier didn't stop russians from doing that. >> kimberly, they say no one has been tougher on russia than he has. but i think back to kennedy blocking the soev yachts, jimmy carter boycotting the olympics, ronald reagan, tear down this wall. fact-check the president on that. has he been tougher than any other president in history?
5:04 am
and i understand the soviet union was a different country. >> if you look at the actual policies that washington has put into place, we've got more troops now deployed in europe than we had earlier. we've increase ourd spending on nato-related military purchases. the sanctions have been very strong against russia. it's not clear they're really accomplishing anything and getting russia to change its behavior. and it hasn't really come so much from trump as an individual. it's come from the senate and his own advisers who have not been all that pro russian. >> obviously syria will be on the table. perhaps russia and the u.s. can work together in getting iranian troops out of syria, some of that presence. what can be done with regard to syria and the two countries? >> it's really complicated and there are some dangers about butting that forward as an idea. the question is what would putin get in return because iran is really a russian ally.
5:05 am
russia gets a lot of benefit because it means russia doesn't have to be doing even more, so if putin says, okay, we'll try to ease iranians out of seary, the question is what do the russians have to give up in response. and, of course, president trump talks about pulling u.s. forces out of syria. if that happens, our kurdish allies located in the east may not have the support. it would be a good reputational thing going forward. >> again, as we know, this is coming on the heels, this helsinki visit, on the heels of the nato summit. >> yes. trump in the last couple of days has been saying more anti-nato stuff again. talking about not getting enough money. saying nato may not be that good. so the optics could be kind of bad. but, again, i think the senate support, support of trump advisers, i don't think they're going dispute any time soon. >> kimberly marten, thank you.
5:06 am
>> thank you for having me here. president trump appears to have been the victim of a prank phone call. it happened the week while he was on board the "air force one." while the white house isn't commenting on the matter, the audio has been posted online in a podcast. >> hi, bob. >> hey, how are you. >> reporter: the phone call was apparently placed on wednesday while president trump was flying back from a campaign rally in fargo, north dakota. the prankster/podcast host and former howard stern show staffer john melendez better known as stuttering john. on the six-minute call, melendez claims to be new jersey democratic senator bob menendez and he appears to engage the president in a number of pressing issues, including immigration. >> we're doing them step by step. i think we could do the whole thing. i have a good relationship with the party. you have good relationship with the party. and i think we can do a real
5:07 am
immigration bill. >> reporter: and the president's pending decision on naming a supreme court justice nominee to replace the retiring anthony kennedy. >> i will help you get -- don't go too conservative, you know what i'm saying? >> yeah. well, we will talk to you about it. we're going to probably make a decision, bob, ore -- over the next two weeks. >> reporter: at one point in the alleged conversation, the president congratulates senator menendez on his recent acquittal on corruption charges. >> you went through a tough, tough situation and not a fair situation, but congratulations. >> reporter: at one point in the alleged -- when asked to confirm if the president was on the call, a white house official tells cbs news we are not engaging on this at all. in a statement, senator menendez tells cbs news, i welcome an
5:08 am
opportunity to have a real conversation with the president on how to uphold the american values that guided our family-based immigration policy for the past century. >> my first question, why did he take the call? it sounded like he likes bob menendez. very congenial. but what is it that bob menendez had to say? >> it's fascinating you can dial a number, and not just any number, but "air force one." the white house switchboard is available to any american, but the "air force one" number, how did he get that? >> or he went to the switchboard. how did that do that without doing any other questions. >> so fascinating. it wenl from the switchboard to -- >> and jared kushner took the call. i think somebody's going to be answering questions about that. >> interesting. >> it is. it's also eight minutes after the hour. here's look at the weather for your weekend.

they're an ocean creature so rare, few people have ever seen them in the wild. up next, the desperate race to save the tiniest species of porpoise, the vaquita, from potential extinction. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." jardiance asked- and now you know. jardiance is the only type 2 diabetes pill proven to both reduce the risk of cardiovascular death for adults who have type 2 diabetes and heart disease... ...and lower a1c, with diet and exercise. jardiance can cause serious side effects including dehydration. this may cause you to feel dizzy, faint, or lightheaded, or weak upon standing. ketoacidosis is a serious side effect that may be fatal. symptoms include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, tiredness, and trouble breathing. stop taking jardiance and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of ketoacidosis

i needed answers. my doctor and i chose xarelto® to help keep me protected from a stroke. once-daily xarelto®, a latest-generation blood thinner significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. warfarin interferes with at least 6 of your body's natural blood-clotting factors. xarelto® is selective, targeting just one critical factor. for afib patients well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® compares in reducing the risk of stroke. don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily, or take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. it may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. get help right away for unexpected bleeding or unusual bruising. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. before starting, tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures and any kidney or liver problems. learn all you can to help protect yourself from a stroke. talk to your doctor about xarelto®.

5:13 am
species or porpoise is down to the last few dozen of its type left in the world. don dahler went along on an expedition in the gulf of california to save the species from extinction. >> reporter: as the sun creeps above the horizon, we head out with a disparate group of volunteers, veterinarians, and marine biologists on a difficult, some would say impossible, mission. two years in making. to track the rarest of marine mammals, the vaquita porpoise. this is bigger than vaquita. for conservation in general, for marine mammals is huge. >> reporter: lorenzo rojas-bracho is directing the effort. it's been an uphit balle against the odds. >> it might seem calm. >> reporter: the challenge is amplified by the fact that there
5:14 am
are so few of the diminutive porpoises left. cent reports show the vaquita population has dropped from almost 600 in 1997 to just 30 today, found only here in the gulf of california. >> the threat is these surgen nets that are placed out, illegally, at night to catch tataba. >> reporter: vaquita's rapid decline is an unintended consequence of the increasing demand for tataba. these fish can fetch up to 10,000 each on the chinese black market, their swim bladder believed to boost fertility. >> they're small animals. they're about my size. they only are in singles and pairs. >> reporter: the operation requires delicate coordination. spotter boats search the water for fins. when one or more porpoise is sighted, trained u.s. navy dolphins act as herd dogs,

moving the pore pugss into position for the capture boats to net them. they're then carefully transferred onto a transport boat. first stop, a specifically constructed marine hospital for medical assessment. then a short trip to the vaquita's new home, a large le trow fitted sea pen once used as a tourist aquarium that was toed here noerl 20,000 miles from the pacific. the complicated plan worked, at first. on day two of the project, they captured one for the first time ever. >> you must have felt terrific that you actually had a chance to succeed. >> oh, yeah. it was all cheers. so excited that we might actually, you know, catch an individual and catch enough to save the species. >> reporter: but that 6-month-old female was just too stressed from the experience. they had to let her go and the team took to the sea to try again. >> a vaquita in this water reat off our bow.
5:16 am
we have to encircle them. >> again and again and again. >> of all of the endangered species, why is this one worth saving? >> it's one of the most endangered marine mammals right now. >> reporter: but all the effort and expense and frustration is also to bring the issue of illegal gill nets to the public's attention. >> so if we can absolutely even sure that these underwater gill nets are not in a place where the remaining animals are, they could survive. >> they would thrive on their own. they just need a chance. >> yeah, they just need a chance. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," don dahler, baja, mexico. >> the other thing they're looking at is possibly cloning the individuals. >> we were talking this morning, we weren't sure that why they were the panda of the sea, but it's the distinctive markings . every species deserves a chance,

a chance to be saved. hopefully they can do something. >> especially when their demise is due to mankind. well, he served during world war ii but was never awarded the rank he deserved. up next, we'll meet the african-american veteran who finally got his commission as a second lieutenant more than seven decades later. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." watch >> announcer: this portion sponsored by toy tachlt let's go places. easy... ♪ [engine accelerating] ♪ get outta the way! ♪ they've gone wild! ♪ saddle up! ♪

i thought i was managing my moderate to severe crohn's disease. then i realized something was missing... me. my symptoms were keeping me from being there. so, i talked to my doctor and learned humira is for people who still have symptoms of crohn's disease after trying other medications. and the majority of people on humira saw significant symptom relief and many achieved remission in as little as 4 weeks. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. oue had tb,rreaswhere n fungal s hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. be there for you, and them. ask your gastroenterologist about humira.

jericka duncan has this story. >> and this is me. >> reporter: 98-year-old john edward james jr. still remembers the day he was drafted by the united states military in 1941. he was just 21 years old. >> when the war started, i was home on vacation, and they told me to get back to camp. >> reporter: his love for his country is in his dna. james says he comes from a long line of men who worked with or served in the military dating back to the late 1700s. james' daughter marion lane has been documenting her family's history for years. >> his ancestry is why this means so much to him. >> reporter: growing up, lane says she knew never to ask her dad about his service. >> when we used to a vy painful for him. don't ask him about that. so we never did. >> reporter: but in 2001 while cleaning out her father's closet at his philadelphia home, she
5:22 am
came across this picture. dated 1942 in ft. benning, north carolina, it shows james with over 200 other men who graduated from officer candidate school. james later explained to his daughter shortly after that picture was taken, he was denied the commission and title as second lieutenant and stayed a private. his superior broke the news. >> he took me into the office and that is when he said, you're being transferred, i'm not going to let you have your bars. go get your material and come tobacco and they had a jeep and took me out where i was supposed to go. >> when he said you would not have your bars, that means you wouldn't become second lieutenant. >> i wouldn'tn't be second lieutenant. >> even though you finished the training. >> even though i fin inned the training. you're brokenhearted to do that, but what can you do. you just have to do.
5:23 am
>> why do you think they didn't want to recognize you as a seconds lieutenant back then? >> i don't know. maybe they didn't want too many blacks as officers, i don't know. maybe they had their quota. who knows. >> did you ever ask why? >> who would you ask? you have to follow the orders. if a guy said run or jump, you ran or jumped. >> reporter: his daughter latzer shared that story with friend in 2015, 14 years after finding the picture. that friend encouragehooder to file what's called a d-d 149 application, used to correct a military record. tt wasn'ea>> no, it wa't.in heas denied twice. >> reporter: the first , gornment officials said the records had been burned in a 1973 fire that destroyed an upwards of 18 million official military personnel files. and when marion submitted the picture she found, the government said it wasn't enough
5:24 am
proof but then an aide to pennsylvania senator bob casey sent an inquiry to the national archives. in april the national archives sent the senator's office a letter stating it found pay records and morning reports proving james was a student of an officer candle data school and therefore should have been commissioned as a second lieutenant. lane recalls calling her father after returning from a speaking engagement overseas. >> i was still on the plane. i called my father and said, i just landed. ool going to stop by your home before i go to my home. my father said to me, you can refer to me as second lieutenant john edwards james jr. he said, i heard from senator casey's office and the government is going to give me my commission. i started hollering on the plane. i couldn't believe it. i was so happy, i couldn't get her fast enough. >> when you think back to that time, 1942, are you surprised that he didn't get that title? >> well, i guess we're not
5:25 am
surprised in the light of history because we now know a lot more about how discrimination played a role in every aspect of american life, even in the militarmilitary, bu just grateful he lived long enough and his family advocated long enough for him to have this commission. >> reporter: fast forward to june. standing tall with his right hand up, the 98-year-old who waited over 75 years for this moment was officially sworn in at the museum of the american revolution in philadelphia as second lieutenant john edward james jr. >> things are perfect in our kun always, but to be able to sort of right thi wrong, what message does this send?it's the country in the world, no kidding. that's why everybody loves america. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning: saturday," jericka duncan, philadelphia. >> unbelievable.
