12:07 pm
economic advisor. he is looking to the fed to make some big moves to stave off the, possibility of a recession. it should be reduced by at least 100 basis points. that would be a full percentage rate cuts, with perhaps some quantitative easing as well. if that happened, our economy would be even better, and the world economy would be greatly and quickly enhanced, good for everyone. keeping the u.s. economy. from sliding into a recession is a big issue for the president. if that were to go away, it could pose new challenges for his reelection. but the president's plane down the effects and insists, if the economy were too slow, it would
12:08 pm
only be because he is trying to ensure america's long-term economic prosperity through new trade deals. >> president trump: i'd be prepared for it. sure, we can do a lot of things, but if it's slowed down, it would be because i have to take on china and some other countries. >> david: and the president, still optimistic that that he t another trade deal. see >> shepard: the message has changed. the mass murder that followed in dayton, the president said at the time, we need a strong background checks. now, something new. first, listen to him yesterday. >> president trump: able don't realize, we have very strong background checks right now. you go into buy a gun, you have to sign up. there are a lot of background checks that have been approved over the years. so, i'll have to see what it is, but congress is meeting

bipartisan. a lot of people want to see what happens. but remember this, big mental problem, and we do have a lot of background checks right now. >> shepard: that's true. we already have strong background checks. so, he was right. we need them. but now, we already have them. that is a new wrinkle in the history of no change. listen to what he said days after the shooting in el paso and dayton. >> president trump: we have tremendous support for really common sense, sensible sensible, important background checks. there has been no president that feels more strongly about the second amendment than i do. however, we need meaningful background checks so that sick people don't get guns. >> shepard: so after first saying we need strong background checks, not the president says we already have them. remember, after the slaughter of innocent children, it was, mass shooting happens. president trump says we need change. phone call from the nra, then
12:10 pm
nothing happens. a new step along the lane. nothing happens. this time, there's a new reason. we already have strong background checks. >> david: we should point out as well that the president's call for stronger background checks in the wake of the shooting, was a change from earlier this year, when the white house indicated that if it passed through the sunset, senate, he would veto it. the other one would have implemented a ten day waiting period for a background to be completed. the president, now saying that he wants congress to work together on all of this. he did hear from the nra about this. the nra voiced its opposition. a little more than a week ago, the nra may have to give in on this one.

but senator, chuck schumer, voicing his disappointment and what the president said yesterday, and a statement saying "we've seen this movie before. president trump feeling public pressure in the immediate aftermath. he talks about doing something meaningful against nonviolence, but inevitably, he backtracks. these are not only disappointing, but also heartbreaking, particularly to the families of the victims of gun violence." >> david: >> we'll see what hap. >> shepard: we will indeed. absolutely no discussion anymore of banning assault weapons. i had, three days, three states, and three potential mass killers, all stopped by police. how they caught them and the video that's come to life that

this so-called nuclear powered cruise missile, designed to invade the u.s. >> it's extremely difficult to know how large the actual amount of radiation release was. we don't know very much about the reactor itself, so we don't know how big it was. and the readings are kind of all over the place. >> news of the russian monitoring station, falling silent, was confirmed by the comprehensive test ban treaty organization. the suspicion by armed control experts is that russia wants to hide the data that could give the u.s. and others information about just how badly that cruise missile test failed. >> shepard: the u.s. has been doing some muscle testing of its own. >> that's right. these are the first ground launched missiles of the u.s. has tested since pulling out all of the nuclear forces treaty. they have long been barred.

target for a lot of these cyber criminals. >> shepard: of course, if you pay, it gives incentive to those who give the attacking, but if you don't pay, it can cost you it a boatload. >> morgan: the week that this attack happens, you are talking about, you pay $70,000, or do you spend another $18 million to fix what could have been fixed for maybe 1-$2 million to begin with. you are going to pay. it's either you're going to pay more upfront to get your cybersecurity where it should be, or you are going to pay a magnitude more on the back end and still have to pay to fix your system. >> shepard: but you know that 4 out of 5 of these attacks, in 4 out of 5 cases, there was a patch that would have prevented it. >> morgan: i was doing some research, right before we came on air with a company called single one.
