or once a safe-haven syria's ed lib province becomes the country's most dangerous place for children live from CNN world headquarters in Atlanta we want to welcome our viewers here in the United States and around the world I'm George Howell the CNN NEWSROOM starts right now five a.m. on the US East Coast two big wins for the US president Donald Trump on immigration first at the US Supreme Court it cleared the way for the Trump administration to use two and a half billion dollars of the Pentagon's money at least for now to build the border wall also the u.s. signed an agreement with Guatemala that agreement limits migrants from claiming asylum in the United States asylum seekers traveling through Guatemala will have to apply for asylum there first the first country that they arrived in if they decide to move on and claim asylum at the US border they will be returned mr. Trump calls the deal a win for both countries listen we've been dealing for many years I would say with Guatemala and with other countries and we are now at a point where we are we just get along and they're doing what we've asked them to do and I think it's going to be a great thing for Guatemala they don't want these problems either so we were able to get this done and we got it done fairly quickly but this is after many many years Mexico also is working along with us very nicely I mean tremendously actually you'll see a chart where the numbers are really through the through the floor I should say because they're going down the deal seems to be based on the safe third country agreement but critics say Guatemala is one of the most dangerous countries in the world that is not a safe place for asylum seekers this as the US Supreme Court cleared the way for the Trump administration at least temporarily to use two and a half billion dollars of the Pentagon's money to build parts of the border wall that the president wants he says that he could use the funds as the court battles it out our senior White House correspondent Pamela brown has more on that story the president immediately hailed the decision by the Supreme Court that paves the way for Defense Department funds to be used for the wall the president tweeting shortly after the ruling Wow big victory on the wall the united states supreme court overturns lower court injunction allow southern border wall to proceed big win for border security and the rule of law so this is certainly a significant Supreme Court ruling along ideological lines and the president's favor it is not a permanent ruling this can still play out in the lower courts but certainly at hands a president a big win on the campaign trail because now he could tell to his supporters that he's following through on his 2016 campaign promise that his wall is being built we should note that these funds that are being used will go also toward replacement fencing along with building new wall all of this happened after the president directed funds from the the Pentagon to be used for the wall after he didn't get what he wanted from Congress will recall that long a government shutdown thirty-five days and after that the president ended it by directing these funds that he didn't get from Congress shortly after that there were certain groups that challenged it in the courts and that is what led to this big support Supreme Court ruling a lower court actually agreed with those groups saying that the president didn't have a right to divert funds that Congress has the power of the purse but the Supreme Court said that it disagreed that these groups that brought the suit didn't have standing and that the government have made a good case for that so again this is a big win for president Trump and gives him a major talking point at least for now on the campaign trail Pamela brown CNN the White House Pamela thank you so as the president chalks up wins on immigration the calls for impeachment are getting louder the House Judiciary Committee has filed the suit to get secret grand jury information from the Russia investigation armato raju has this report from capitol hill a major step forward for house democrats as they decide whether to impeach president donald trump in a new lawsuit the House Judiciary Committee told a federal judge it needs secret grand jury information gathered by robert muller because articles of impeachment are under consideration as part of its investigation although no final determination has been made after weeks of intense democratic debate about next steps to fight the president Sharon Jerry Nadler and members of his committee said their probe is essentially the same as a formal impeachment inquiry just saying there's no difference between what you're doing now in an impeachment inquiry correct in fact this is an impeachment investigation we're now crossing a threshold with the filing Nadler told reporters the only difference is that his committees investigation is broader than an impeachment inquiry but acknowledged the end result could be the same we are going to see what remedies we could recommend including the possibility of artists cook impeach we're not limited to that but that's very much the possibility as a result of what we're doing the development comes amid growing Democratic divide over how to move forward in the aftermath of molars appearance before the house in which he testified about alleged crimes committed by the president but failed to deliver the commanding performance that many Democrats were hoping for after the hearing Speaker Nancy Pelosi renewed her push to fight the White House in court but in what allies see is a shift she's sounding open to the possibility of impeachment some of your Democratic colleagues believe you're simply trying to run out the clock on impeachment oh no I'm not let's get sophisticated about this okay okay but how long do fights we'll take we won't proceed when we have what we need to proceed not one day similar there advocacy for impeachment only gives me leverage so I'm willing to take whatever heat there is there to say when we when we the decision will be made in a timely fashion this isn't endless Democrats have increasingly voiced concerns that the window is closing on launching an impeachment proceeding I would certainly like to see us move more expeditiously the House Judiciary Committee said it also may file a lawsuit as soon as next week to try in for former White House Counsel Don Magan to cooperate with is probe into potential obstruction of justice after President Trump instructed McGann not to comply with its subpoena four weeks sources say now privately argued to blouson their hand in court would be strengthened if they launched a formal impeachment probe but publicly he stood by her side could there be a point though mr. chairman where you break from the speaker and you announce publicly your support for impeachment we may decide to recommend the articles of impeachment at some point we may not it remains to be seen and there's no point speculating on whether the speak or anybody else will agree with our decision at that point now one thing the speaker has not been saying in recent days as that is essentially fruitless for the democratic-led house to move forward and Pietschmann proceedings because if they were to approve of it it would die in the republican-led Senate she had actually been saying that for weeks but essentially has dropped that message in the last several days also I am told that new language in the lawsuit saying the House Judiciary Committee is considering moving forward with articles of impeachment I'm told the speaker signed off on that language Manu Raju CNN Capitol Hill here to put it all into focus right now we have Kate Andrews Caitlin associate director at the Institute of Economic Affairs and political columnist with Citi am joining this hour from our London bureau good to have you with us get to see you George so it's being called an impeachment investigation instead of an actual impeachment inquiry so whether that splitting hairs or a nuance here the bottom line there is an effort underway to get secret information from the Muller report to help Democrats to the side of whether to impeach the president but the question raised in MA news piece is the window closing for Democrats to do this well naturally it's closing as you know the the election is upon us now 2020s and focus and you know the president could theoretically be removed her impeachment processes but he could also be removed by a Democrat who manages to beat him of course he could win as well and we're back to where we started but when we watched special counsel Muller address Congress you know you watched him walk this tightrope of not wanting to endorse any politics on the left or the right and I think both sides were probably very disappointed Trump was not to be exonerated disappointing the Republicans but of course he did not say he was guilty of a crime and he could not find enough evidence to say that Trump was guilty of a crime disappointing the Democrats and now seems like they're trying to take impeachment into their own hands and it can be a bit of a dangerous game especially going into election where the messaging of simply being anti Trump and not necessarily offering the country more may not resonate well with voters mccr ATS want to pursue the path of impeachment there some who worried that this could energize the president's base ahead of the 2020 election there are also others who are concerned that it could force Democratic candidates running for president to talk mainly about impeachment not talking about those table top issues that will be so important to come this election so do you see this as a losing hand for Democrats or could this somehow help them come the election I suspect it's a losing hand because if Muller had found a smoking gun and if there were a really good reason to believe that Trump were guilty of obstruction of justice or a crime it would have been laid out in that in that you know absolutely massive report and the fact that they don't have that evidence and they're really trying to scrape the bottom of the barrel at this point to find some more would suggest that they're just not going to have the talking plants they need to be able to run a primary or a general election on the idea that Trump has committed a crime on the other side even though Trump hasn't been exonerated per se the Republicans can say you know where is the evidence Muller didn't have the evidence there's no reason to believe that politically motivated Democrats are going to have the evidence so if they're not focused on those serious domestic domestic issues like tax and health care and immigration and the rest and they simply focus on Trump without having that evidence at their disposal I think they're gonna have a very difficult time all right let's also talk about immigration the president claiming victory on two different fronts first regarding the wall that he wants to build on the us-mexico border the the wall that he said Mexico would pay for instead defense department dollars we'll be paying for that as the Supreme Court has given the nod for that money to be used toward construction how does that play for the President as he heads to the campaign trail it plays well and look the Kreme Court actually rolls on a very technical point they haven't actually said that Trump is right in law to divert at these funds but they've said that they're going to grant him the use of those funds temporarily well lower courts debate whether or not he has the right to use those funds so it's quite technical the Supreme Court hasn't and in in in principle rules in trumps favor but in practice this is a very good talking point for the president as you mentioned because one of his major campaign pledges was to build a border role while he actually hasn't been very successful in doing so yet but now he can go back out onto the campaign trail and say well at least it's coming and I do actually have the funds to make it happen and Cait another thing the president can talk about on the campaign trail the agreement he signed with Guatemala requiring migrants to pass through that country to seek asylum first essentially meaning migrants who reached the u.s. will be returned to Guatemala a country that critics say is not safe for asylum seekers what are your thoughts about that agreement that's been reached I really have mixed feelings on this one because it's certainly the case that the u.s. is a much safer destination for asylum seekers and those who have experienced torture banned and threaded torture than a place like Guatemala but if we you know look across the world to the Syrian crisis and the migrants that have come into Europe there has been a real issue in so many migrants over a million going specifically to Germany and other countries not doing their bit to take in an appropriate amount of asylum seekers and migrants in order to balance out what different countries are having to bear and so I'm not totally opposed in principle to the u.s. working with countries south of the border or Canada to say look we need to have a rational way that we divvy up asylum seekers and migrants we can all bear this burden as where resources can be pulled to it to help them but of course if you are an asylum seeker being put in Guatemala is very different than being put in the USA so you know it's a very difficult sensitive public policy topic fine I think in principle for the u.s. be working with other countries but you can't simply put all the burden on other countries besides yourself okay we appreciate your time today thank you thank you in Hong Kong protesters are on the streets for an eighth straight week this time they're standing up against the violent armed mobs that attacked the week we have a live report from Hong Kong ahead food plus extreme temperatures are melting much of Europe it's so hot the heat wave could possibly bake the Arctic our meteorologist Derrick the live look at Hong Kong this hour 5:16 here on the US East Coast and 5:16 p.m. there in Hong Kong thousands of protesters on the streets there in a small town on the border with mainland China making their voices heard after violence last Sunday that's when mobs attacked protesters there with iron bars and bamboo sticks at least 45 people were hurt and about a dozen people were arrested let's take a look here we also see police moving in as we're watching again this live image in Hong Kong the camera trained on these police officers as they move toward the protesters are Kristie Lu stout is along with us Kristie I'll bring you in as we continue to watch this but again what we're seeing right now these police standing certainly on one side of that intersection protesters with their umbrellas on the other what more can you tell us George it is a very fluid situation here and you had long in the far north of Hong Kong all afternoon we've been watching what we estimate to be tens of protesters in this unlawful assembly coming through Castle Peak Road last 30 minutes or so we've seen what was previously a constant flow a protestor to stop retreats moved back and as you could see them wearing the black t-shirts in the other archives stopping checking their phones they appear under the cover of their Road discussing some sort of strategy this all taking place as we know that the riot parades are in the vicinity I do not see the riot police in Spanish position where um the flyover a castle Pedro protest and when you talk to the protesters there here now what began the beginning of the summer is a single-issue peaceful march about an extradition bill has Morphin involved into something so much more they're angry about the triad violence against protesters passers-by and journalists last week they're angry against what they see is a reluctant police response to the youngling assaults of last week they're angry at the government they're angry at Carol and the fact that the extradition bill has not been fully withdrawn and many of them when he talked to them also want universal suffrage which was a full demand of the 2014 umbrella movement as well so this protest as it drives on this is the eighth consecutive weekend a protest this summer here in Hong Kong has evolved into a much greater crusade against the political institutions and the police we will consider tomorrow the situation but right now you get a sense that's very fluid the protesters at least in this stretch of road they have stopped their march from the playground to the MTR station which was the original plan of this unlawful protest they are talking to each other they're figuring out what is happening in the outskirts of the unknown of what is going to happen next back to you Kristie Lu stout stand by for us just want to reset and show our viewers again what we're seeing here police officers certainly in riot gear that officer holding a weapon pointed toward the protesters just a moment ago when we were looking down that Avenue at the protesters we saw an American flag a couple of American flags there protesters with umbrellas there many of them prepared for what whatever goes down there as again police are just a few moments ago used tear gas pushing the protesters back our Kristie Lu stout is monitoring all this Christi we'll stay in touch with you as you continue to give us updates about what is surely a developing situation on the streets of Hong Kong at 5:21 p.m. there in Hong Kong switching now to the record-breaking heat across Europe many records were shattered and now the heat shifts to the north our meteorologist erik van damme is here to tell us more about what is happening because derek clearly this is a matter of climate change people who deny it are just sweating it out with the rest of us yeah with that well put actually because we are seeing temperatures that have never been experienced before across Europe and we've been covering this all week we're going to recap what happened because the World Meteorological Organization reviewed a couple different temperatures and now we have actually included parts of the UK or at least England in the hottest temperature ever recorded for July 25th 2019 by the way this is piggybacking off of the warmest June ever recorded on the planet looks like July is going to end that way as well so we had the United Kingdom Netherlands Belgium Luxembourg and Germany record their hottest day on record on Thursday this is incredible 38.7 in Cambridge that's just shy of 102 degrees Fahrenheit this eclipses the previous record set back in 2003 August of 2003 were unfortunately there were several fatalities because of the heatwave that lasted for several weeks across Europe now the temperatures include Norway into Sweden as well as the Netherlands and even into Denmark where we're talking 10 to 15 degrees Celsius higher than where they would be normally this time of year we have seen relief this is good news we've got a cold front that's moved in across the Atlantic Ocean but it's also squeezing the heat further north into Scandinavia and this is allowing for temperatures to store in places like Stockholm as well as Oslo temperatures the departure from average or running ten degrees above where we should be this time of year the heat has broken in many of the major cities we talked about Paris setting their all-time record high temperature never seen the mercury in the thermometer climb as high as it did 108 degrees Fahrenheit for them on Thursday incredible amounts of heat but that has since subsided the real heat really expected across the Mediterranean where we would expect at this time of year but the problem is we have seen these temperatures so for too many weeks consecutively and unfortunately this has set off a series of wildfires across the Arctic Circle and we're starting to notice these fires and the air pollutants and the smoke that continues to get wrapped up in some of the storm systems across Russia Alaska northern Canada and it is unfortunately made the air very stagnant across this region pollution ongoing you can see it from satellite imagery as well and this is an incredible statistic 15 megatons of co2 released from these wildfires that's equivalent of Sweden's annual co2 emissions that's in one month alone of forest fires in the Arctic CNN meteorologist Derek van damm thank you for graduation all right still ahead Democrats hoping to become the next US president have a crucial week ahead we take a look at how they're doing in the days leading up to this week's debates seen only here on CNN stay tuned for that of course plus two close allies both born in New York mind you look ahead to a post brexit relationship the latest from London is ahead as CNN NEWSROOM welcome back to our viewers here in the United States and around the world you're watching CNN NEWSROOM live from Atlanta I'm George Howell with the headlines were following for you this hour in Hong Kong protesters are rallying in the streets in a border town where violence broke out last Sunday and this image at 5:28 p.m. in Hong Kong you see police there on the streets of police pushing the protesters back protesters were throwing objects including plastic stools and traffic cones as riot plaid police responded with tear gas police say the protesters are being disorderly they say that this is an unlawful protest we will continue to monitor at weapons some buildings were reduced to rubble in the popular tourist region in one area residents were forced into the street after a church was damaged House Democrats are wrapping up their call for impeachment the House Judiciary Committee filed a suit to get secret grand jury information from the Russia investigation it's also moving to enforce a subpoena from the floor the former House Counsel Don Magan to testify impeachment will likely come up this during this week's Democratic debates the candidates are to hit the stage on Tuesday and Wednesday until then they're on the campaign trail rolling out new proposals and of course hoping to replace Donald Trump young-hwa reports tells them to go back to where they came from what do we say we're not going back we're not going back and in fact I'll tell y'all where we're going we're going to the White House Kamala Harris on the attack against President Trump just days before the second democratic debate she did not swipe at Joe Biden or mention their much anticipated rematch on the stage asked if she'll be polite at that face-off Harris told one reporter today I was raised to be polite after Biden said this about his approach at the first debate I was probably overly polite ahead of next week's debate fighting has previewed a more aggressive posture against Harris and Cory Booker which a senior campaign official says is being driven by the former vice president I think beating Donald Trump is a floor it is not the ceiling Biden is still holding on to his frontrunner status and a new national Fox News poll with Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren and Harris all in double digits in the run-up to the debate the top candidates are jockeying with competing policy rollouts Harris before a primarily black audience of the National Urban League I will make a sixty billion dollar investment in STEM education at HBCUs and other minority serving institutions that's aimed at closing the racial wealth gap investing in historically black colleges and universities and an additional 12 billion to support black entrepreneurship before the same audience peep buta shesh also attacked Trump my generation saw this country elect its first black president and then turn around and elect a racist to the White House and we ought to call that what it is and rolled out a new economic policy to help gig economy workers unionized booze Esch is targeting big tent sourcing their employees and their benefits Elizabeth Warren announced she crossed a threshold receiving more than 1 million donations so far this election Bernie Sanders previously crossed 1 million donations both have rejected high-dollar fundraisers Elizabeth Warren is campaigning in New Hampshire this weekend Bernie Sanders is holding a fundraiser in Detroit Pete bhootish – Cory Booker still out on the trail this weekend but Kamala Harris Joe Biden dialing back those public appearances as they get closer to the debate John Lowe CNN Indianapolis young thanks and as for those debates don't forget they will be live on CNN Tuesday and Wednesday of next week coverage starts at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time here in the United States and you can see the encore presentation at 7:00 a.m. in London a day after only here on CNN the new British prime minister spoke by phone with the US president Friday Downing Street says the two leaders discussed working out a free trade deal after Britain leaves the European Union this is believed to be the first time the two have spoken since mr. Johnson moved into number 10 he's a good guy he's a friend of mine I think we're gonna have a great relationship and Boris is gonna be a great Prime Minister I predict you will be a great Prime Minister he has what it takes they needed him for a long time UK needed him for a long time let's go live across the pond sama bel Aziz live in London this hour and Salma tell us more about the conversation these two men had who already have a relationship and are seemingly aligned on many issues that's right George and after that call President Trump said that he had spoken about a very substantial trade agreement with the UK he talked about increasing trade between the two countries three four even five times unclear where he got those figures from and he said that the UK's membership in the EU had actually impeded trade between the two nations so this is exactly what Prime Minister Boris Johnson wants to hear as he sort of turns away from Europe and faces the possibility of relationships with other countries but here's the catch the UK cannot negotiate trade agreements with other countries until it actually leaves the EU so his first hurdle his first deadline is that October 31st date that's when the UK is supposed to officially leave the EU and it's very difficult to imagine how he's going to overcome this deadlock he has talked about reopening negotiations with the EU but he's also talked about the removal of the backstop that is the agreement that deals with the Irish border as a precondition to those talks something that ye leadership has already simply said no to he's talked about crossing out a so called No Deal brexit but Parliament also the numbers there seemed to indicate that that would be turned down by Parliament so what we're seeing here is a Boris Johnson who very much is looking across the pond trying to tout that relationship but it's simply not going to save him from the crisis here at home George some of béla Z's live for us in London some Oh we'll continue to follow it with you thank you in Syria the civilian death toll is rising and the UN is telling the world to pay attention pay attention to what's happening right there welcome back to CNN NEWSROOM the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights is urging the world not to turn a blind eye to what's happening in Syria the Syrian civil war it's still happening it comes as the civilian death toll there is on the rise the UN says it's a direct result of a government offensive in northwestern Syria listen despite repeated calls by the United Nations to respect the principle of precaution and distinction in their conduct of hostilities this latest relentless campaign of airstrikes by the government and its allies has continued to hit medical facilities schools and other civilian infrastructure such as markets and bakeries these are civilian objects and it seems highly unlikely given the persistent pattern of such attacks that they're all being hit by accident intentional attacks against civilians are war crimes and those who have ordered them or carried them out are criminally responsible for their actions the number of children killed an ad lib province in the past four weeks alone has to pass the total the total from 2018 the charity saved the children says at least 33 children have been killed in the last month and two young sisters died after an airstrike hit their building you see this image here the aftermath of that attack it was captured very powerful image showing one of the girls a five-year-old girl trying to save her baby sister trying to save her baby sister from falling the baby survived the five-year-old did not the Civil War has also claimed those who are documenting it among them a 22 year 23 year old photographer known for capturing the tragedy of this war CNN's jamanakai Raja has the story and we do warn you going into it the images are graphic even when the world almost stopped paying attention and SDF did not stop taking pictures he wanted the world to see the living hell that his country had become d abs photographs brought us the worst of Syria today like this heartbreaking image earlier this year of six year old hasna Koran the lifeless hand under her knee was that of a three year old sister her one-year-old brother was also killed in that airstrike but in the midst of tragedy he never failed to also capture moments of innocence the humanity that at times outlived the horrors of war he was witness to some of the darkest atrocities of our time the April 2017 chemical attack on his town of hanahuna diab a media activist in a member of the rescue group the white helmets was injured three times in recent years but that didn't stop the 23 year old he spent the past week documenting the brutal bombardment of cash leak owned by the Syrian regime and its ally Russia and it cost him his life he was killed in an airstrike on Sunday colleagues and friends gathered to pay their final respects and the white helmets mourned him in a statement saying quote anis will always be remembered as the one who chose to stay behind the scenes and fight with his camera less than 24 hours after his death there were more bodies to bury more victims to mourn lives lost in one of the bloodiest attacks in months on what's left of rebel-held Syria death here has become the normal the everyday that is what NST AB wanted the world to see even as it turned the other way jimana Karachi CNN is dumping it Joell basu joins now from Beirut Joelle a spokeswoman for Save the Children Middle East thank you for being with us Thank You Joel let's again show the image just want people to see this again show it full to understand exactly what's happening again you see these children these young girls both died as a result of injuries tell us more about the situation what's happening exactly they're in and around it Lib province the situation is simply horrific since the end of April there's been an increase in violence and air strikes and shelling and children I'll be paying the price for this violence this photo that has gone around the world now it's not just a photo of two small girls they have identities they have names reham was five years old no one has her sister who was three they are both dead now and their younger sister took her seven months also hide their father who lost children lost his wife and it's just senseless brutality day-in day-out and it lived since the end of April again let's take a look at that image because again it is so important to see this we understand that the baby died in that image the the baby survived but again that that's that that's the problem you're seeing that these attacks continue to happen and this is one stark example of the problem here I want you to take a look at the numbers here reported by your organization so the violence by the numbers since the end of April of this year has now resulted in the deaths of at least 400 people that includes 90 children compared to 31 children killed during all of 2018 and 440,000 people displace Save the Children and hores Network confirmed that it 33 children have been killed since June 24 those numbers clearly give an indication and that image certainly does as well of how bad things are yes these are conservative numbers also because since we released the more children have died including the two sisters whose photo you've shown earlier our numbers are conservative because her gas network our partner on the ground documents every single death so early it doesn't mean that it will not increase and they're just a comparison tool I mean more children have been killed in four weeks than in a whole year and numbers are just hiding stories of families torn apart we heard from our partners on the ground that fortunately enjoy playing together in one neighborhood where killed and the families could not with leave the body part because they were intermingled so it's how stories every single day from Celia and civilians are being the price there is nowhere safe in Syria anymore in Italy for civilians the US president Trump has once said that he should be given credit for asking Russia to protect it live but clearly Russian and Syrian forces are renewing attacks on this last holdout for rebels millions of whom are displaced refugees with nowhere to go at this point yes there's a total disregard by warring parties to international humanitarian laws and international human rights laws and the protection of civilians is the last thing on their minds people are dying but people are also being displaced as you have mentioned some families have been displaced up to 10 times they're living in open fields on their three years it's very hot currently in Italy there is a lack of proper food water sanitation so also there's a risk of increase and health issues and diseases so children are victims across the board they're not just dying they're also living in very precarious conditions and if this is supposed to be Syria's future generation that will hopefully build Syria when there is peace you can imagine the mental impact of this war on those children the State Department condemned the attacks calling for an immediate ceasefire but look the position of the United States pulling the greater majority of its troops out of Syria does the u.s. really have any leverage to say anything demand anything in Syria I mean I cannot comment on the position of the US government what is clear in Syria now is that there is a total disregard for civilian lives and there is a total indifference from the international community the UN Security Council is one place where a political solution can be reached and a decision to at least reach a ceasefire currently in a blip can happen but there is no action whatsoever at this level so warring parties are continuing with the fighting on the ground and in the air with a total indifference from the international community and civilians again are paying the price julik epidemic it says that while many governments have adopted policies to help reduce tobacco use many countries are still not doing enough to help people quit the organization's Director General says governments should offer more services like national toll-free quit lines and nicotine replacement therapy to support people who want to stop using tobacco in the meantime the United States is finding out more about how far Issa Guerette companies will go to reach new customers a congressional investigation into the vaping manufacturer Jule is revealing some shocking facts about what it did to get teenagers attention our dr. Sanjay Gupta has this story we face an entire generation of kids addicted to nicotine who are human guinea pigs for the Joule experiment overall many of Jule's tactics seem to be right out of the big tobacco playbook we never wanted any non nicotine user and certainly nobody underaged to ever use jewelle products jool hasn't provided satis we've seen passionate exchanges between tobacco opponents jewelle executives and members of Congress at a two-day congressional hearing on Jools role in the youth vaping epidemic but perhaps the most surprising exchange came from high schoolers who revealed that Jul had sent a representative to their classroom last year and that teachers were asked to leave the room did the presenter called jeweled quote-unquote totally safe more than once yes what impacted those quote-unquote totally safe comments have on your classmates some of whom may have already started vaping um for my classmates who are already vaping it was a sigh of relief because now they were able to vape without any concern we asked joule about this and they said presentations the students were made as part of a short-lived educational and youth prevention program which was ended in September 2018 the company says its purpose which was to educate youth on the dangers of nicotine addiction was clearly misconstrued the company also said it has taken actions to prevent youth vaping like scaling back its social media accounts platforms that critics say had particular appeal among teenagers but according to one expert who testified that was too little too late you would have thought that hashtag posting would decline but in fact it surged surged in part because the hashtag itself gained a kind of social currency even after the brand had largely exited social media jackler and others say this video should scare anyone normalizing the use of these devices even in a young toddler we've seen lots of outrageous postings on hashtag Jewell it's

  • Lies? The news media is starting to describe Trump's 'falsehoods' that way. … It's (almost) official: The president of the United States is a liar. This will not come as a revelation to people who have closely followed President Trump's public … us that a person had such a motive in making a false statement
