2:02 am
cnn's ryan nobles reports from tulsa. >> reporter: president trump's rally here in tulsa is set to take place on saturday, this despite a lot of concerns from public health officials here and of course the overtones of the racial strife going on across the country. we're here in greenwood, the place where the 1921 massacre took place. a lot of folks here celebrating the juneteenth holiday. the tone could be different on saturday. there are protests expected. people coming to protest the president's appearance here. of course, we expect thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of supporters to show up at the bok center. more than 1 million people have rsvp'd for the event. only 20,000 can fit inside itself. there's expected to be a big crowd outside. the president expected to speak
2:03 am
to that group. the concern is 90,000 people inside. yes, they're going to get hand sanitizer, a mask, all of their temperatures will be checked but there will be little to no social distancing at all. that's what has many officials here even in tulsa concerned. but the president is committed to moving ahead with his campaign rally. the president sees this as essentially the restart of this campaign in wake of the coronavirus pandemic. they want to demonstrate if they can pull this off safely, this is a sign that the country is ready to reopen and goes a long way for his election chances. ryan nobles, cnn, oklahoma. president trump's administration faces a series of crises, but mr. trump seems preoccupied with protesters. our jim acosta reports from the white house. >> reporter: with trump supporter lining up for his rally in tuls sashgs this weekend. the president is issuing a warning to demonstrators who
2:04 am
show up at the event as well tweeting any protesters, an arc consists, agitators looters or lowlives you are going to oklahoma please understand you will not be treated like you have been in new york, seattle or minneapolis. white house officials appeared to qualify. >> the meaning of an arc consists, looters, any l lawlessne lawlessness. >> reporter: white house officials trying to downplay the risk of catching the coronavirus at the rally at the time when cases are spiking in oklahoma. press secretary kayleigh mcenany said they won't be wearing masks. >> it's a personal choice, i won't be wearing a mask. i can't speak for my colleagues. i'm in compliance with cdc
2:05 am
guidelines which are recommended but not required. >> reporter: members of the same team aren't on the same page. >> if i were at the rally, i'd wear a mask. if i wondered about it, i'd ask my doctor about the event. >> reporter: brad parcells said he'll likely wear a mask. >> yes, i'll probably be wearing a mask. >> reporter: dr. anthony fauci told cbs radio people in large crowds should wear a mask if they cannot practice social distancing. >> the best is to protect yourself, to prevent acquisition of and spread of the infection is toal void crowds. avoid crowds. if in fact, for one reason or other you feel compelled to do that which we don't recommend, then wear a mask at all times. >> reporter: the president is also defending the president's tweet exploiting video. in a rare rebuke of mr. trump, the tweet which included news graphics was manipulated media by. twitter.
2:06 am
>> when you share fake videos like that, doesn't that make you fake news? >> i think the president was making a satirical point which is quite funny if you go and watch the video. >> reporter: trying to explain what the president 34e7meant whe told "the wall street journal" the meaning of juneteenth. >> he did not just learn about juneteenth this week. that's simply not true. >> reporter: asked about the video tweeted out by the president two toddlers on a sidewalk, trying to make a point about racism in the u.s., twitter has disabled the video in that tweet saying it violates copy right rules. jim acosta, cnn, the white house. this talk about president's trump's upcoming rally today, i'm joined by leslie vinjamuri, professor of politics of chatham house of london.
2:07 am
>> good to see you, natalie. >> bottom line, leslie, by all accounts, supporters are excited to see this rally, they've been camped out a few days. covid or know covid. it's a base, what does that say about his base standing behind their man? >> i think for starters, people all over the world are eager to see other people. it's a natural desire. but we are living through an extraordinary pandemic that's hit america hardest of all. and the signal that the president sends to people about the measures that we absolutely must take to protect and prevent the spread of the virus and the uptick in deaths of americans is the most important signal. the most important platform. and the president is not enforcing a decision to -- the requirement of wearing masks. it's absolutely essential. you're listening to dr. fauci say, wash your hands, keep your distance and wear your masks. and we're not going to see
2:08 am
distance-keeping or mask-wearing. remember, natalie, what we've been told that superspreaders are the most dangerous cause of the spread of the infection. and events -- large events that take place indoors, that's really as dangerous as it gets, for spreading his infection. so, i think it comes at a very risky time. it sends a very bad signal to have the president -- and people are taking their lead from this president. and remember this is also coming at a time where a national conversation about race has been taking place for several weeks that needs to be led with a great deal of care and respect. so people will be watching to see what the president says about race. >> yeah, i wanted to ask you about that. because he hasn't addressed directly what this country is the going through at an unprecedented time in our history.
2:09 am
the question is will he talk about racism? will he say black lives matter? will he mention juneteenth? how important is this moment for him as we approach november in a few months? >> well, it's extremely important. and one has to wonder, you know, what it is that president trump is trying to do. remember that he's very down in the polling nationally by approximately 9%, if you a aggregate the different polls. his base is staying with him. in order to bring more people in, i think it's incredibly important that the president address the question of race. that's the majority of americans -- americans see this as a problem that needs addressing. regardless of whether he actually talks about black lives matter directly, the fact that the president is in tulsa, the city of the 1921 -- one of the worst massacres of black citizens in america. and the fact that he's there, the day after juneteenth, it's
2:10 am
sending a very clear signal that ra race isn't on the agenda. and so the need for him to address it and that he respects it is aabsolutely essential. remember, that the vice president has not used the phrase black lives matter. i think it's a very dangerous reason for health reasons. for reasons having to do with social unrest in the united states. this is a president who thinks his ticket for re-election has everything to do with restoring the american health. we've just seen 1.5 million new jobless claims. he'll be very sensitive to that. opening up america and getting americans to get out and participate out and about, it's something that the president believes will drive economic productivity, but if it leads to infection, it will could exactly the opposite. unfortunately despite numerous
2:11 am
health advisers saying this to the president, the president is not sending a clear signal to w. i want to talk to you about another story, the trump administration releasing the resignation. i'll get your opinion in a moment, leslie. but first, here's cnn's evan perez with more details. >> manhattan district attorney matthew berman is refusing to resign. the attorney general william barr met with berman in new york and asked him to step down but berman said he's not going anywhere. hours after the justice department announced that berman was indeed leaving his office, berman released a statement saying in part, quote, i learned in a press release from the attorney general tonight that i was stepping down as united states attorney.
2:12 am
i have is not resigned and i have no intention of resigning, my position by which i was appointed by the judges of the united states court for the southern district of new york. i will step down when a presidentially appointed nominee is confirmed by the senate. the president intends to nominate jay clayton to take over the officer in manhattan u.s. attorney. berman's office has been overseeing a number of sensitive cases, including the investigation into the president's personal attorney rudy giuliani. evan perez, cnn, washington. >> all right. so, leslie, could be another show down at the justice department. there's been no love lost, of course, between the southern district and washington. do you think this move is indicative of that? >> well, it is the southern district of new york is, of course, very well-known for its very tight hold on its
2:13 am
independence. it's stood apart. it's pursued some of the most hi high-stakes investigations of michael cohen. now of giuliani. there's an investigation into a turkish company that might have violated sanctions against iran that's come out in john bolton's book. and so, it's perhaps not surprising that there is a call for the prosecutor to resign. but the fact that he's holding on firmly, waiting for a legitimate -- what he sees as a legitimate process to appoint somebody new is a disturbing, distressing and harkens back to the early days when people in the trump administration learned that they were being fired by text message and other mechanism. >> like the fbi director, mr. comey. >> that's right. so it's very disturbing, it's very untelgsettlinunsettling. but we're getting used to seeing these type of politics. i think it goes to the heart of
2:14 am
the matter which is does this president respect the independents of the different parts of the government. this is vital to the health of the democracy. it's deeply concerning, we're seeing this in the questions of the appointments, some of the dismantling of the leadership across the voices of america. time and time again, there's a question of respecting the independence of the judiciary, especially but, remember, natalie, it's also been an extraordinary week in america, as you know, supreme court rulings that didn't go perhaps as the president might have thought. so it's a mixed story but one to watch. >> we certainly will. we appreciate your insight. leslie vinjamuri for us. >> thank you. numerous u.s. states as we've been talking about are posting record high counts of covid-19, as the pandemic compaer appears to be escalating in some regions and americans are divided how to respond. we'll dig into that next.

oklahoma having a sudden spike in new coronavirus cases, but it is not the only u.s. state seeing record-breaking numbers this week. nick watt has the latest. >> reporter: florida, arizona, california, oklahoma, scene of tomorrow's trump rally, all setting records, seeing the most new cases in a day since all this began. >> we're in the midst of the greatest public health failure in american history. and if we're going to continue to open up and not open up safely, we're going to continue to see increased cases. >> reporter: these eight states home to roughly a third of all americans right now seeing their highest ever new case counts. apple now closing some stores in arizona, and florida. the and the phillies just shut down spring training in clearwater, after five players tested positive. this is not over. masks work. those are facts.
2:20 am
but they're now politicized. take the governor of nebraska reportedly holding coronavirus emergency money from any county mandating masks in government buildings. dallas county, texas, now mandating masks in the state, but the governor of the state won't. and florida, mandating masks for all, but the governor won't. >> it's simple no vaccines, no treatment, right? all you need is test and trace of good public health, combined with personal responsibility, masks, social distancing and handwashing. mu put it together and new zealand reporting zero cases. >> reporter: you got that right, new zealand routinely reports zero cases per day. and then a steep drop, 5,000 cases a day. and u.s., five times that and climbing. >> what europe did differently, they stayed locked down a bit longer. a bit more uniformly.
2:21 am
>> reporter: the day florida has phase one open there were only 4,000 cases in the state. today, 5,000. >> i don't think we slow down to move forward. >> reporter: the governor thinks it's down to testing. even his adviser disagrees. >> there are about 18 states where the positivity rates are going up. which means if the cases are going it's not because you're doing more testing. >> reporter: the northeast pushing ahead was the new york governor's last daily covid briefing. >> today, we are seeing the virus spread in many places. more people will die. and it doesn't have to be that way. forget the politics. be smart. >> reporter: and even more bad news for sports fan late friday. the toronto blue jays baseball
2:22 am
team has also closed down their spring training and facility after a player showed symptoms. the tampa bay lightning hockey team also closed down after three players tested positive. and a pga golfer has also now tested positive for covid-19. nick watt, cnn, los angeles. >> let's talk about what's going on in the united states with dr. peter drobac, an infectious disease doctor. good morning. >> good morning, natalie. >> let's start in tulsa, oklahoma. we're just hours away from president trump's rally, the crowd will be huge. cases are up 110% from last week. masks will be handed out, but they're not mandatory. is that enough to protect people in a crowded indoor venue? >> it's not. and this is just such a
2:23 am
high-risk undertaking. one thing we've learned during this pandemic is that superspreader events have been really important drivers of this, more that's a church or a pub in south korea or a mardi gras festival in the u.s. if you were to design a super spreader event based on what we know about covid-19 it would look like a lot like this rally today. so i'm extremely concerned as most are about the risk of getting 17,000 people in a closed indoor space. >> it's not just oklahoma as we just heard a huge rise in cases. 23 states have seen spikes in states compared to last week. what is going wrong in the u.s.? why are we seeing this? >> it really comes down to a total failure of leadership. at this stage of the pandemic, we know enough about how the virus spreads, how it kills and how to stop it. that we've got a playbook that does work. unfortunately, that hasn't been followed in many parts of the country. what happened was, in many
2:24 am
states things reopened too quickly. and we're now starting to see the results of that. of this is not down town creased testing. we're seeing increases positivity rates fill up. we're seeing hospitals start fill up. this is an extraordinarily dangerous moment in america. >> yeah, why is it happening in the u.s. and not europe? what did they do that we're not doing? >> well shg, a couple of things. of course many parts of europe, we saw a massive first wave that overwhelmed health system untin some part of those countries as we did in the u.s. we also saw fairly significant lockdowns. i think in the american areas we held on to them longer and waited until transmission was at a lower rate before reopening. in many parts of europe, we're seeing more widespread mask use and more areas of testing and some cases contact tracing
2:25 am
programs. unfortunately what happened in the u.s. after all those weeks of people making those great sacrifices of sheltering in place, we took our foot off the gas too quickly and now we're paying the consequences. >> right. some people thought that it was over and we're still in phase one. that previous report that we saw from our reporter there filed, showed the hesitation of people wearing masks. and some leaders have tended to mandate mask wearing plus social distancing. where do you think state leaders should be on this? >> so, if you look at a place like arizona and florida right now what will we have is the early phases of a raging uncontrolled epidemic. it's already in a place where even if there was contact tracing in place it's not going to keep up with transmission at this level. there's really only a couple options to slow this down. one would be to move towards a
2:26 am
lockdown to get people home, frankly that would be advisable. the second thing to be done is to make mask wearing ubiquitous when people are out in public. that could significantly reduce transmission. the more evidence we have is more important. it's a six-fold decrease in transmission if people are wearing masks. governors need to think about this, if they're reluctant to slow down their reopenings, the only other tool they've got is to make mask wearing the norm. >> i want to talk with you, though, before we go, about the world. what the world is seeing, peter. more than 150,000 new cases were reported friday. the most in a single day so far. months into this massive all kinds of responses to try to limit the spread, what does that tell you about this virus? >> well, as we've been saying for a long time, we're still very much in the early days of this pandemic. and anyone who thought we were out of the woods, unfortunately
2:27 am
was wrong. we're seeing the pandemic grow around the world as quickly as it ever has, with really concerning developments in latin america and some parts of sub-saharan africa. and elsewhere. the flip side is we have learned places like new zealand and china have taught us how to suppress the virus and get it under control. there is a playbook and it's not too late for us to go on offense on this virus and try to crush it. it won't be easy. it will require sustained investments, attention, solidarity. but it's really what we have to do until we get a vaccine. otherwise, we're just going to continue to see extraordinary levels of unacceptable deaths. >> it's just going to be a cycle. and we will have trouble getting ahead of it, peter drobac, always appreciate your insights. thanks for joining us. >> thanks, natalie. we're staying on this topic. thousands packed in an arena during a family. what could possibly go wrong?

welcome back to our viewers here in the u.s., and around the world, i'm natalie allen. this is "cnn newsroom." president trump is set to hold his first major rally in months just hours from now in tulsa, oklahoma. it was officially scheduled for juneteenth, a holiday commemorating the end of slavery, but after massive pushback, mr. trump changed the date by one day. it also comes in the middle of the pandemic where wearing face masks has become a political slash point. cnn's gary tuchman shows us why
2:32 am
on this issue tulsa is a city of contrasts. >> reporter: trump supporters started lining up for his tulsa rally days ago. >> plus, i want to be front row, front and center. >> reporter: the daily number of new cases has skyrocketed in tulsa county at the highest level yet. thousands of people will be inside this arena and outside of it for many hours. masks are being given out, but they're not required to be worn. and social distancing is not mandatory. >> i have absolutely no concern whatsoever. >> it just doesn't concern me at all. >> reporter: rallygoers must agree not to hold the trump campaign responsible if they contract covid which is not a red flag to anyone we talked to her. >> do i french-kiss anybody? no. but i can stand -- when i went to a dinner house in nebraska nobody had masks on and the lady said, you want more coffee?
2:33 am
i felt normal. normal. >> reporter: nothing about this concerns you? >> none. zero. >> reporter: but in this very same city -- why did you decide to close this plant? >> for safety of our own. >> reporter: he's the manager of the school bus plant in tulsa. last year we were the number one market share of school buses. >> reporter: shutdown is planned this week. confirmed covid cases are rapidly climbing over the last weeks. >> i purchased 1400 covid kits. >> reporter: earlier this week, all of the employees still being paid were told to come in to get tested. based on results, the decision will be made how long the plant has to stay closed. when it's operating, 300 buses are made each week. lots of money is being lost. but the plant manager said this is a responsible decision in an increasingly vulnerable city. >> i got to make sure people are safe. >> reporter: roberta is a
2:34 am
veteran of the plant, a father of three. >> i think it's right for the not only my safety but the safety of my family. i get to bring that home if i get it. >> thousands of people in the arena many without masks, how worried are you about a dramatic spike in cases in this county? >> in any event, without people wearing masks we're concerned. >> with thousands of people? >> we're concerned. people coming together without taking precautions is what causes the virus to transmit. it gives the virus the ability to transmit from person to person. of course, we're concern. >> because i'm not going to get it. i'm not going to give it to somebody else. >> how do you know? >> reporter: one city, two completely different visions. a factory people are relieved not to be inside because of the health threat. and an upcoming rally where people can't wait to get inside despite the health threat. >> the plant manager is prepared for the possibility of many more
2:35 am
of his employees testing positive. >> we take it very seriously. it will continue to drive our energy we we drive it out of this plant. >> reporter: gary tuchman, cnn, tulsa, oklahoma. >> here's our chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta on the potential risk of the trump campaign rally. >> if you look at the incidents of the virus in that area right now, you'd expect about 100 people, roughly, would show up at that event, already infected. maybe they don't know they have the virus, but they have it. if you look at certain principles of public health about 20 of those people are going to be significantly shedding the virus. 20 people out of 20,000. here's the problem, because the sort of environment there, those 20 people could inspect 40 to 50 people each. which means 800 to 1,000 people could become infected as a result of this. >> well, in the state of arizona, a heated debate there has erupted over requiring masks in public places.
2:36 am
friday, the state reported its biggest single number of new cases that's more than 3200. phoenix, the next city to host a trump rally is now mandating masks. but it seems arizonaens have gone back to prepandemic times. cnn's kyung lah shows us. >> reporter: pandemic? what pandemic? what do you see when you look at that bar? >> obviously, they're definitely not social distancing, and not wearing masks. those are my friends over there. >> if they have coronavirus, i have coronavirus. >> reporter: this is the next state to host a presidential rally. arizona, a growing covid-19 hot spot, and home to a fight over masks. look up and down the street, and the impact of the virus is everywhere. some businesses still shut down. bright signs warn to socially distance.
2:37 am
one bar worker in a mask, but many of these tempe arizona residents -- >> i think the masks are good. but i think they kind of act as a placebo to a certain extent. >> i'm trying to be calm for this interview. >> reporter: this doctor is an emergency room dock in phoenix, where he's seen a dramatic increase in covid-19 patients just like the rest of the state. this is what's happened in arizona since march. the number of new cases continues to break records nearly every day this week. arizona was among the first states to reopen. businesses back. the gatherings followed like the protests of police brutality. and masks in public, as we saw in tempe, not always used. >> to tell the whole world that basically i'm a social darwinist. if you die, i don't care, i just want my beer and burger. is really -- i mean even

2:39 am
should go on. >> we're going to protect people's rights to assemble in an election year. >> reporter: the city of phoenix passed an ordinance requiring masks in public places. so when the trump campaign is here on tuesday will it be subject to the ordinance? the city says yes and notified the white house about the ordinance. if the president isn't wearing a mask does that mean he'll get a ticket? technically, yes. in reality, no. the city said this ordinance is meant to be led by education. only the worst repeat offenders will be subject to tickets and fines. kyung lah, cnn, scottsdale, arizona. the anniversary of the end of slavery in america was commemorated on friday. next, we show you how juneteenth was marked this year as the u.s. struggles to live up to its ideals of freedoms and justice for all. also, after an atlanta police officer is charged with felony murder, there's backlash
