7:14 am
some places had 11 inches of rain. strong wind knocked trees and power lines on to trees and cars. thousands of people lost electricity. >> a dangerous heat wave is threatening nearly 70 million americans this morning. in the midwest, temperatures will feel close to 100 degrees. in st. louis, chicago and detroit. the heat is also warming up the northeast from washington to boston. northeastern temperatures are expected to stay in the 90s through thursday. a cold front will bring relief to the midwest but not all good news. there could also be severe thunderstorms. a leading voice in the me too movement is claiming italian being an there's asia argento is not being honest about sexual assault allegations against her. actress rose mcgowan claims her partner turned over text messages to police in which argento admits that she had sex with actor jimmy bennett when he was 17. in a statement, mcgowan urges or are argento to, quote, do the right thing, be honest, be fair. be the person you wish harvey
7:15 am
could have been. argento has denied the assault al allegations, though she admitted paying bennett, claiming she was being extorted. we reached out for comment. we have not heard back at this time. efforts to overhaul nafta are entering a critical phase with the arrival of the canadian minister in washington today. president trump and his outgoing mexican counterpart announced a preliminary deal yesterday to replace nafta. stocks hit record highs even though trump threatened to place tariffs on canadian-made cars if canada does not reach a deal. wall street gained more ground this morning. the editorial board writes on first inspection this is half a nafta, contains some improvements but notably is worse in many ways. whether it can pass congress is far from certain. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here. a tentative agreement, still not a deal. but the ill pact front page of "usa today" likely will mean higher car prices for all
7:16 am
americans. >> right, because a part of this plan is really to strengthen some of the labor components of nafta. so there are two big parts of the automobile sector that would be influenced by this potential elimde. the first is that 75% of a car's value would have to be made in mexico and the u.s. that's basically a way to say any goods coming from china pass through mexico can't back door their way into the u.s. the other part is 40% to 45% of car components would have to be made by manufactures paying at least $16 an hour. so imagine that that would raise the cost for cars which could potentially be passed along to consumers. it also may actually create many jobs so that could be good. but prices could go up. >> but it also means wages go up for those workers. >> indeed. i mean, wages go up either in mexico for those workers or here in the u.s., those workers are already getting those wages. it's a way to prevent u.s.
7:17 am
companies from sending those jobs to cheaper facilities in mexico. >> what does it mean for trade relations between the u.s. and canada? >> well, this is a really interesting phase. as we said in the intro, the canadian foreign minister is in d.c. today. this is going to get heated. canada had two big beefs wey ba with mexico but there are two issues we really care about. we don't want this whole deal to sunset after five years. the u.s. had said we want that to happen. the government already gave on that. so in the deal with mexico, it's a 16-year deal to be reviewed every six years. canada's going to be happy about that. but there's another part where the u.s. has said we don't want the dispute resolution to take place as currently written. they kind of want to water it down. canada has said that's a no deal for them. so it could get contentious here. we really want to see canada participate. we'll call it nafta 2.0 which i think would be an improvement for the u.s. >> or "the wall street journal" calls it half and half. >> well, i think --
7:18 am
>> i just like saying half and half. >> i know. i think the problem is until you have canada signing on this could get very thorny. and having a bilateral deal is not as good as a trilateral deal. remember, u.s. manufacturers and industries, they have adjusted to this. this has been in place since 1994. they don't want to see huge changes because they're already running a business that actually can reflect nafta. these improvements could help. some losers will start squawking. again, the faster we get this done, the better it will be. >> to be continued for sure. thank you, always good to see you. a new study says impression and anxiety can i a lot of you are waking up to gray skies this morning, but we have sun back there. there's a look at the satellite and radar, definitely showing clouds and drizzle.

that while everyone's lking a daknow, you're hol the bld. and you don't want that. >> i, jimmy carter, do solemnly swear -- >> reporter: jimmy carter only served one four-year term in the white house, so he never met the five-year requirement for a federal pension, but he isn't planning on retiring. already a former president for longer than anyone in history. >> you said you thought that telling the truth was important when you were president, but you seem to suggest it might not be so important to the presidency. >> well, that seems to be the case now. you know, i think it's well known that the incumbent president is very careless with the truth. telling the truth has been pretty deep ingrained in me, and i think that makes it even more deplorable to me to see that it's been abandoned by some people. >> some people would say, well, that's politics, you know? you maybe have to tell a lie now and again and maybe even more than that, but you can succeed for your side and get things done.
8:38 am
>> i disagree with that. i think i went through my campaign and my presidency without ever lying to the people or making a deliberately false statement. and i think that would be a very worthwhile thing to reinsert into politics these days. >> the current president's changed the office around a lot in different ways. do you ever look at the presidency and say, boy, i wish i could have done that, it would have been a lot easier? >> not really. emulated in recent months. but you know, i'm not here to criticize the incumbent president. i just wish him well and i prayed for him. >> where do you see hope, then, in today for the rebirth of america or for the rebounding that people are looking for? >> well, there's bound to come in our country through the electoral process, and i think that america will learn from its mistakes. we don't always elect the best person. that's obvious, i think, including the time when i ran for house.

but i think america eventually prevails. >> wow. >> he said, including the time when i ran, perhaps. >> yes, i heard that. >> perhaps second thoughts. >> number one, john it was so good to see him again. it's just a reminder of what this country is really about. and i like how he ended with, ultimately, america will prevail. i like that. >> i'm also struck in having seen him recently, too. he spent his life in service to his country. he's a former navy man, and even after office with his wife, has dedicated his life to this cause, habitat. always thinking about the other rather than himself. >> that's right. >> and we're reminded of that, too, with mccain's passing. while he was selfish in many ways he will admit, he was so dedicated to the service of his country. >> the transit of property of the selflessness is what hooked letterman. that's the thing that's amazing is letterman was calling carter a beacon. so, that selflessness you describe is not just one person doing something. it literally draws others, and that's what was so powerful, not

8:46 am
someone for their help, we're asking them to put in effort and take time, but for the most part, we're really overestimating that. we're focusing only on that and not thinking about how rewarding it is, actually, to be helpful. there's tons of research that shows there's basically nothing human beings do that's more rewarding and gives them a bigger boost of self-esteem than being helpful. so people actually like helping. they get a warm glow. they get a kick out of it. >> but i feel you're putting people on the spot. >> i mean to some extent, you are. >> yeah. >> there is a discomfort when people have to say no, and that is actually part of the reason why asking over e-mail or a text is a bad idea, because they're not as on the spot. it's easier for you to ask by e-mail because you feel more comfortable. it's easier for them to say no because they feel more comfortable. >> so important, pick up the phone. >> pick up the phone. >> in fact, you've got data that shows a person is 34 times more effective when they ask in person. >> yeah, by person or in phone. it's that live interaction, 34 times more likely to get a yes. and we do this all the time. people ask by e-mail.
8:47 am
they'll do the even worse thing, which is send a group e-mail. so, send an e-mail to 20 people asking if one of them can help, and everyone just ignores that because they think somebody else -- >> somebody else will help. >> the trouble of the commons. heidi, somebody once said you can separate the world into two people, the people who ask and don't mind if you tell them no and the people who say, no, i am not going to help, i'm not going to ask, and you shrink off. what distinguishes one camp from the other? are there certain traits? >> i don't think so. i think it's a little bit life experience. and people who ask have just sort of caught on to the fact that it's very difficult to be successful in life without asking for a lot of help. and so, they've kind of just built that muscle of getting past the discomfort. we talk a lot about how important it is to have a network, right, of allies and people spend a lot of time building that network to be successful, but then they don't know how to tap into the network by asking those people to actually help them. >> and you said don't assume people are mind-readers. >> right. >> you have to let people know that you need help. >> yeah, including your spouse and everyone else.
8:48 am
the truth is, our need for help is far less obvious than we believe it is. it's obvious to us. it's not obvious to anyone else. you have to explicitly ask. >> and you say be specific about what your ask is. i can sometimes get an e-mail and i'm like, well, what is it that they want? >> what do you want? >> it's the worst when someone sends you an e-mail and says i'd love to just get together and chat. >> catch up. >> and it's like, no, you want something. tell me what it is. >> exactly. >> i'd like to banish the phrase pick your brain, too. >> oh, right? >> unpleasant. >> i actually say that. >> oh, no, you are doing everything wrong, gayle. >> i know! >> but how about the other end of the telescope? so, when you're a person, should you make yourself available to help other people? in other words, help lower the barrier for other people so that they might -- just being a friend? >> i think that's a really useful thing to do, because we do have to recognize people will find it uncomfortable to ask, s to be easier. there is research that shows that you want to be careful, though, because being a giver is
8:49 am
a great thing to a point, but some givers can experience a lot of burnout when they give too much and they don't focus enough on themselves. so you want to always strike that balance between giving as much as you can but making sure you're still taking care of you. >> so, your best way to ask for help without being a burden to people is what? >> well, to be as specific as possible to say this is exactly what i need and exactly how i need it. then they can feel confident that they can make a decision about whether or not they can help you. everyone wants to be an effective helper. no one wants to be a bad helper. so, the more clear you are, the better. >> i need heidi to be an effective helper and let's get out here to the commercial. so, thank you. gayle, thank you. >> you're welcome. >> heidi grant.
