america mite is second to none. when it comes it battle, we don't want a fair fight. we demand victory and we will have total victory. >> we can tighten up that message and we can expand the through put of that message. i think we continue to win. >> obamacare is dead. democrats are obstructionists and it's solely up to the republican senators to rescue the american people. >> we have to have republicans and democrat come together to solve the problems in this nation. we cannot continue this way. >> do you have any doubt russia
3:01 am
meddled through an overt presidential campaign in our election last year? >> no doubt. and i stand behind the intelligence. this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. this is cnn breaking news! >> good morning to you. we will get to politics in a moment. first, breaking news out of texas. >> horrible news. eight people have been found dead in the back of a semitruck in san antonio and dozens were pulled alive from the truck but in poor condition and fighting for their lives in hospitals right now. we with know children are among them. we want to go straight to cnn polo sandoval. what are you snaerg. >> reporter: a massage triage operation taking place in a parking lot of a walmart southwest of downtown san antonio overnight.
3:02 am
let me bring you up-to-speed on what we know at this point. 38 people were discovered in a tractor-trailer. eight of them now confirmed dead. all of them males according to authorities. what we also know is that overnight, a walmart employee contacted a police officer after being approached by an individual who was believed to have been in the back of that tractor-trailer rig. police and medics arrived finding dozens of people suffering from heat exhaustion and dehydration and 17 are being treated for life-threatening injures in south texas last night in the triple digits so you can may imagine inside that tractor-trailer it was extremely hot and we were told the refrigerator unit was not operating at the time. authorities saying that all signs seem to point to a human smuggling operation at this point. while this is tragic, this is, sadly, not new. we have seen these kinds of situations before, these kinds of smuggling attempts where
3:03 am
human smugglers putting people back in trailer rigs has happened in the past. 2003, 19 illegal immigrants suffocated to death near victoria, texas. 2014, 40 people were rescued from inside a tractor-trailer rig and also, most recently, in july, about 12 people rescued from from one of those tractor-trailer rigs. this is something we have seen before. this is a known smuggling route, especially since that is the segment of interstate runs from the u.s./mexico border and would spread out through a network throughout the country. this is something that we have seen before. however, in this case, now eight people confirmed dead with dozens of others currently being treated in local hospitals in san antonio. back to you. >> thank you, pablo. >> with us on the phone is henry valdes who was at the scene. thank you for speaking with you,
3:04 am
henry. first, tell us what you saw. starting with where was this truck? >> this truck was behind the walmart where they usually do the deliveries, where they unload the 18 wheelers. like you said, a man went up to an employee and asked him for a drink of water. so when he went back to the trailer and they opened the back door, that's when they found the 38 people. >> we heard from polo a few moments ago and i spoke to you a few moments ago off air and i asked this is a route that typically we see human trafficking and human smuggling. explain more about that. >> well, this is the first time that we have had in san antonio this big of people being smuggled into san antonio. it's usually on the outskirts of san antonio like victoria. another place. but this is the main route
3:05 am
between zone and laredo, texas. >> i know we can see the tape there cordoning off a crime scene but did you get to see any of the people pulled out of this truck or the driver? >> the driver was in custody and that is what our police chief said. i got to see one that had been air-lived to one of the local trauma hospitals. >> henry valdes who was there at the scene. again, eight people dead pulled out of the back of this trailer. dozens more injured. henry valdes, thanks so much for being with us and we continue to follow this story as we learn more about this tragedy in san antonio. new white house communications director says he is ready to deliver what you he calls president trump's quote, very compelling message to the american people. >> we will hear it later on
3:06 am
"state of the union." he says he can push the president's vision through tough headlines. >> we were talking about this yesterday in the president's study offer of the oval office where i said, okay, yeah, we are having a tough time mainstream media and last time i checked we were having that and people see through it. >> scaramucci starts out. jared kushner will face a committee. >> the white house says it is time to step up as senate republicans vow to hold a vote this week to overhaul the affordable care act. leaders aren't saying what they are going to vote on, if will be a repeal or replace chance or just a repeal. will this be make or break week for republicans? the house will vote on fresh sanctions against russia for
3:07 am
election meddling and could reach president trump's desk for the end of the month. >> the congress could block any easing of the sanctions. kaitlyn collins has the latest for us. >> reporter: house and senate negotiators announced saturday they had come to an agreement on a new bill that would play sanctions on russia, north korea, and iran. the sanctions against russia is for the meddling in the 2016 presidential election. according to kevin mccarthy's this would come to the senate and so-to-a vote and hit trump's desk before august. a key part of this bill is a congressional mandate that would require a view if donald trump decided to end or ease these sanctions against russia. this is a key part of the bill that the white house has pushed back on as it has been crafted. but if donald trump decided to veto this legislation, he would almost undoubtedly face backlash
3:08 am
from republicans and democrats alike who think the president should take a tougher stance against russia. donald trump has been very active on twitter blasting hillary clinton, james comey and the special counsel and his most notable tweet on saturday was about pardons. let's take a look. now this tweet comes after a "the washington post" report that claimed the president and his legal team were exploring his pardoning abilities and seeing just how far his authority does go. now a source familiar with the discussion told cnn that a curious donald trump was asking questions in an informational way. donald trump's lawyer john doubt pushed back on this "the washington post" report calling it nonsense and saying that his team is cooperating fully with the special counsel's investigation. back to you. >> kaitlyn, thanks so much.
3:09 am
with us is political anchor for spectrum news errol louis and kelly jane is also with us of the weekly standard. >> good morning. >> this bill on sanctions goes specifically to the president's ability to ease them or to paws them. no executive likes limitations on their powers but is the president considering the vote in congress expected to veto this one? >> this is a tough one for president trump, isn't it? and, you know, he is not a typical republican. we have known that from the start but i've actually thought since the beginning that russia is likely to be the issue in which he is going to have the most trouble with his own party because republicans have been very cautious ian some of them very hawkish on russia for years now it's amazing to me that republicans in the house and the senate have gotten backbone and pushed back against the president. it took an issue as important as this one that they have all cared about for years. i think he is considering vetoing it but think about how
3:10 am
bad that would look. it might not even mat if he vetoes it because it looks to me like the house and senate have veto proof majority so they can just go back and get rid of that veto and that would certainly be a dramatic development. >> errol, let's talk about that. if the president, you know, signs this because he knows there is overwhelming support for this on capitol hill, we know that there have been times we consider the relationship with china, we talk about the second travel ban that he actually signed and then said he didn't want or didn't like. this president can offer a running commentary through the statements on twitter that could be a wink and a nod to russia. >> well, he could give all of the winks and nods that he wants, but reality he has been boxed in politically and he may have outsmarted himself. the very policy that he promised to pursue during the campaign and has said he wanted to pursue as president seems to be a little bit further out of reach as a result of the leaks and the collusion and the double
3:11 am
statements and the multiple investigation. he is no longer politically in a position to simply veto this bill. it's also worth keeping in mind, it's not simply about the collusion that is leading to these sanctions. there is a long list of human rights abuses that are part of this as well. there is the annexization of crimea part of this as well and military aggression in the ukraine is part of this. the entire russia policy has to be looked at and not collusion and where donald trump puts his efforts and not in healing an alliance he hoped to create. >> let's talk about another portion of the u.s. relationship with russia and that is the news that the director of the national security agency, admiral mike rogers is making this weekend talking about the cyber security unit discussed during putin's meeting with the president at the g-20. the president tweeted this on the route back from the g-20 meeting.
3:12 am
there was on slaught of criticism from democrats and republicans and experts the same day the president then released this statement. this weekend director rogers said this about that unit. >> i'm not a policy guy. you have to talk to somebody else. it's not what we do. in term of, hey, what is my thought? i would argue now is probably not the best time to be doing this, that on the other hand, perhaps this is something that you could hold out that we might want to build to over time were we to see changes in behavior. >> it got a laugh in a room and from the director of the nsa there not the best time. kelly, is this still even on the table? >> yeah. the fact that you could hear laugher throughout the whole room when he said it shows what
3:13 am
an understatement that is from admiral rogers. no. i mean, it's quite amazing, you know? trump made that tweet and then he sent out people to defend it. you know, you had steve mnuchin and others tweeting about it. he thought this was not a good idea and he sent out surge at-bats to talk about it ments he did it take very seriously. when you have the head of the nsa and not a man part of a hack by any stretch when he says something like that you know there is something seriously wrong with that idea. >> thank you both. we have a lot more to talk about in a few minutes. rand paul and al franken and anthony scaramucci will join
3:14 am
jake tapper coming up at 9:00 a.m. on "state of the union." step up to the plate they are saying. the vice president calling out members of his own party. here is the question -- does congress -- do congressmen and women know what they are voting on? plus, so many challenges in the white house and really low approval ratings for this president have democrats optimistic about their challenges moving forward. but amid dreams of retaking congress next fall, we have new poll numbers that really are keeping democrats awake. when i look in the mirror everyday. when i look in the mirror everyday. everyday, i think how fortunate i am. i think is today going to be the day, that we find a cure? i think how much i can do to help change people's lives. i may not benefit from those breakthroughs, but

3:19 am
morning, republican senators must step up to the plate after seven years in vote to repeal and replace obamacare. >> message from the president and vice president there as the senate represents to vote on a plan to overhaul obamacare this week. no one has announced what is in this plan. the deadlock on health care and failure to pass any major legislation is hurting president trump's poolf approvapproval rae polls are grim for the democrats hero here. only 37% of americans think the democratic party stands for something. 52% say it just stands against trump. so, kelly jane, how do they fix that? how do they prove they are purposeful and not just seemingly spiteful of the president? >> they have a lot of work to do and disappointing to think they have not learned anything from
3:20 am
the election. they had a candidate they were running against who insulted minorities and insulted women and had no experience in political office, and beat them. and they still think that the way to win is just to do the same thing they did in the election and point out what an awful person donald trump is. that's not enough. clearly the polls show that people don't really like any of the politicians out there. they want something new, they want something fresh. and the democrats really need to step up and give it to them and start talking about policies, thing that they would like to do if they got power, rather than just saying donald trump is a mass and republicans are a mess and we are going to stand and obstruct everything they want to do. >> the president's approval ratings are not strong by any means either but you know what? the economy is and that matters too. 43% approve how he is handling the economy when 225,000 jobs in june and unemployment at 4.4%.
3:21 am
that is in his favor. he's on the upside in that regard. with that said, look at these numbers. 48% of americans have a negative view of democrat according to bloomberg news poll released on thursday. it amplifies the problem the numbers are steady. errol, what does that say to you where the democrats go now because they have not made any gains in the nine months since president trump was tlekelected >> the democratic congressional campaign committee recently had a public contest and wanted a new slogan and came up with these incredibly partisan slogans like, you know, she persisted, we resisted or turn congress blue again and things like that. the numbers you just show indicate that the public does not care about that. there is something like 22 counties in wisconsin out of 72 counties that went from obama to trump the last time around.
3:22 am
voters are willing to give anybody a chance if it looks like they know how to handle the economy and it looks like they are speaking to their value and their preferences. this sort of obsessive focus on the unfitness of the president, that case was made and it was a reasonable attempt by hillary clinton but it did not work. the democratic party to stand for something. thr huge issues out there not just health care reform. something the price of housing has shot up 34% over the last five years. that's a serious problem. what are the democrats intend to do about it? you can go issue by issue and ask him what do they intend to do and that starts to raise the question that could maybe get them to lower those unfavorable number. >> errol louis and kelly jane torrance, always appreciate your input. kellyanne conway is going to be brian stelter's guest on "reliable sources" at 11:00 a.m. eastern today on cnn.

thank you for spending time with us. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. 27 minutes after the hour. more on the breaking news out of the texas. >> eight people found dead in the back of a semitruck in san antonio and people are fighting for their lives in the hospital and some of them are children. the temperature inside that truck was suffocating possibly as high as 115 degree. i spoke to him about the conditions that he found when he arrived on scene. >> our units arrived about 12:36
3:28 am
this morning would fora welfare check on a semitruck parked behind the pharmacy alongside a walmart. first units arrived and quickly found multiple patients in various levels of heat distress. some unconscious, some idewere dead. we called a mass transit to arrive out there and start transporting people. initially, we had eight dead on arrival and we ended up transporting a total of 30 patients, 17 of those were in critical condition and with heat strokes or heat injuries. a lot of hem them are going to have irreversible brain damage. that was a refrigerator truck with no refrigeration. the inside of the truck was

3:30 am
understatement of those two word because the kremlin has been vehemently critical of any sanctions imposed on them. it only worsens the situations and only hurt the economies and the countries which impose them. secondly, we have seen a level of anger coming out of russia about sanctions recently that perhaps is slightly above average. not only about this potential package of new sanctions but about existing sanctions. there is an ongoing going on about the diplomatic compounds that were seized in december in that package of obamacare era sanction over election meddling. russia foreign minister saying that is daylight robbery and if the compounds are not returned they reserve the right to retaliate and they have said the same thing about any new sanctions that come in. so quite negatively, you know, suddenly a bit of an understatement but the mood here is that they really are ready to

orrin lieberman is there. this is the worst violence we have seen in there for years. >> reporter: it is. probably until the end of 2015 and lasted into early 2016. it feels like that now. or at least it feels like it could be heading in that direction. we have three israelis killed on a settlement last night and palestinians killed in clashes and started only a week and a half ago. where does it go today? today is a critical day. as you had, this is very much on the international radar. the quartet the eu and u.n. and russia and u.s. are trying to deescalate the clashes. as i said, today is a critical day for that in term of decisions from the israeli government. they have met and will meet again the security cabinet to see what to do here and see how it proceeds. the palestinians have called for a day of rage here that is largely symbolic. you don't see that rage on the

day of my administration. if a fight does come, it will always end the same way. we will win, win, win. we will never lose. we will win. >> president trump stressing america's military mite. speaking during the commission of the "uss gerald r. ford." and to derive the drop spending and beef up his funding. in his budget he is pushing congress to include an additional $54 billion for defense next year. cnn military analyst mark hertling is with us now. when you hear that figure, $54 billion, it's impressive. what do you takeaway from that? how much good will that do? >> it is impressive. it will contribute, but, truthfully, not to disavow anyone, but it is normal of that
3:46 am
historic increase which had been planned for the military. mr. trump said he had $19 billion this year and that is in fact, a historic budget. he is standing in front of a aircraft carrier that is a technological marvel and it began under the 2005 bush administration and built from 2009 until it was commissioned yesterday under the obama administration. so this is nothing new. mr. trump will probably not see his campaign promises come to fruition even with the increase in the budget and most of that is going for operations and personnel costs and maintenance, not any new ships he promised, i think, 350 new ships and $540,000 soldier army, as well as increase in the air force and the marine corps. the budget he has promised will not give that. it will probably mainta476,000
3:47 am
and eight new navy ships that were already on the drawing board. >> you're saying the president shan't necessarily offering anything new? >> not much. it's a modest increase but factually it's only about a 3% increase and over the last several years under past administrations, those kinds of increases had been planned in the budget and many in congress, primary the republicans, say this is not enough to rebuild the military to the point where the new administration wants it. and even anywhere close. >> what would on it take to rebuild what we need? >> well, a lot more than mr. trump is promising. senator mccain and representative thornbury said it would take about 680 to 690 billion dollar budget and that is about 60 billion more than than what mr. trump is suggesting. we have also to considering we have been in 15, 16 years of war
3:48 am

3:56 am
these thunderstorms moved through the area yesterday and the severe weather included really strong damaging wind. let's bring in cnn meteorologist allison chinchar. the reports say that the winds are caused by downbursts. tell us about these. >> in term of the damage, is actually is very similar to a tornado but also at the same time, very distinguishable when you're looking at the specific damage. in your thunderstorm, you have a lot of that cold air that comes in. cold air descends. but as its comes down it comes down incredibly rapidly and when it gets to the ground it has to go somewhere so it spread out very quickly along the surface. sometime those wind can reach 100 or 150 miles per hour. again, that is very similar to what a tornado would end up doing. the thing with yesterday was we had not just one downburst but multiple around the kansas city area and reports of hail. also over 140 reports of damaging wind. this was why we have a lot of
3:57 am
reports of power outages. trees down. there was also damages to buildings, as well as homes and vehicles around that similar area. now, unfortunately, for today, this system is still continuing on. right now you can see some very heavy rain moving over towards the louisville, kentucky, area, south of cincinnati. that system is going to continue off toward the east, which means we still have the threat for severe weather today. mainly for cities like detroit, pittsburgh, washington, d.c., new york, even around indianapolis. the main threats are going to be damaging winds, very similar to what we had yesterday but also the potential for some large hail, as well as tornadoes. again, the timing of this is going to be late afternoon and as we go into the evening hour. overnight, be extra careful because when you're sleeping and you're not on your guard so make sure you have apps or your weather radio is ready to go. >> allison chinchar, thanks very much. arizona senator john mccain is recouperating from blood clo

3:59 am
for a made in america event. >> first, pretend to be a firefighter and then he dress up as employ. is trump trying to be all of the village people before the end of his term? >> reporter: but every time the president gets in a big rig, something happens. beware of the curse of the truckdriver in chief. when the president gets behind the wheel, legislation crashes. >> the vote on health care not happening today. >> reporter: almost four months ago, the president got in a truck and blew the horn. but what really got blown that day was the house health care bill. >> now we know they are postponing the vote. the scheduled vote that didn't actually happen. >> reporter: this week the president climbed into the fire truck that sean spicer is visible in a side view mirror taking the president's picture and guess what happened to health care in the senate that day? >> this bill is dead. >> reporter: we are not saying the president's fake driving made health care road kill. we are just driving home the
