well good evening once again de 1267 of this Trump administration that leaves 117 days to go until the presidential election over 800 of our fellow citizens died of the corona virus just today the u.

s.

continues to lead the world by a large margin at least on the coronavirus front Donald Trump today called his hometown New York City a hellhole this may have something to do with that the words black lives matter in yellow paint on Fifth Avenue in front of Trump Tower on the political front the president's push to get children back into school is sinking in among families who are debating the safety of it depending on where they live teachers as well on the judicial front the president's closely guarded finances were at the center of two Supreme Court rulings today decisions that laid down firm markers on the scope and limits of executive power and they do force Trump to extend his battle to keep that information private the rulings came on the last day of the courts term in one case that justice has cleared the way for the Manhattan da Cyrus Vance to see Trump's financial documents himself which had been subpoenaed by a grand jury as part of that investigation into the hush money payments to two women who claimed they had affairs with Trump the president has denied those allegations still in the other case House Democrats were blocked from getting their hands on many of the same records including Trump's tax returns the Supreme Court sent that case back to lower courts for further review the New York case will also return the lower federal jurisdictions which means it's unlikely that voters are going to see these records before the election the court voted 7 to 2 in both cases with Trump appointees Gorsuch and Kavanagh joining the 7 vote majority the opinions for both cases were written by the Chief John Roberts who said quote no citizen not even the president is categorically above the common duty to produce evidence when called upon in a criminal proceeding the White House tried to portray the decisions as a victory for the president but he felt otherwise he made that clear posting several responses on social media with the usual messages including the words prosecutorial misconduct and he later added this well the rulings were basically starting all over again sending everything back down to the lower courts and you start all over again and this is a political witch-hunt Alexa which nobody's ever seen before it's a pure witch-hunt it's a hoax just like the Muller investigation was a hoax that I want and this is another hoax this is purely political late tonight within the past few hours the president continued to rail against the IRS and against the nation's High Court decision in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity I'm under tax audit I have been for a long period of time we made a deal a long time ago and once I ran for politics that deal was like we didn't make it it's a disgrace what's happened we had a deal done in fact it was I guess it was signed even and once I ran or once I won or somewhere back a long time ago everything was like well let's start all over again certainly has been a lengthy tax audit Trump's attorney general also weighed in with a response that revealed just how much he's been keeping an eye on these cases as they've moved through the courts we were disappointed in the decision to the extent that did not accept our our argument the government's argument about the extent of the president's immunity there are protections and defenses that can be raised so the case has now been remanded to the lower court where some of the issues will be addressed meanwhile House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the ruling was by no means a defeat for her side we have a path that the Supreme Court has laid out that we certainly will not ignore and we will never stop our oversight the victory is for the Constitution of the United States in the meantime we remain in the midst of a pandemic and as we mention the number of coronavirus cases in our country continues to climb over fifty six thousand four hundred new cases diagnosed today were now at over 3.

1 million confirmed infections well north of a hundred thirty-three thousand American lives lost New York Times reports that the surge in cases likely being fueled by states that move to reopen too early particularly Florida Arizona South Carolina Texas dr.

Anthony Fauci spoke out again today about this situation refuting what he's been hearing from the White House I don't think you could say we're doing great I mean we're just not and tonight just to keep things even during his Fox News interview the president took a swipe at foul Chi doctor foul she's a nice man but he's made a lot of mistakes like you don't have to ban him coming in from very infected China I did it anyway we saved hundreds of thousands of lives they've been wrong about a lot of things including face masks maybe they're wrong maybe not but a lot of them said don't wear a mask don't wear a mask and now they're saying wear a mask so a lot of a lot of mistakes were made there is also still this question surrounding the question of when and how to reopen schools yesterday the vice president indicated the CDC would be revising school guidelines after the president complained about them here's the vice president from his remarks yesterday and will follow it with the CDC director Robert Redfield from today the president said today we just don't want the guidance to be too tough and that's the reason why next week CDC is going to be issuing a new set of tools five different documents that are be giving even more clarity on the guidance going forward I want to clarify really what we're providing is different reference documents so our guidelines that are our guidelines think it's really important it's not a revision of the guidelines hey there I'm Chris Hayes from MSNBC thanks for watching MSNBC on YouTube if you want to keep up to date with the videos we're putting out you can click subscribe just below me or click over on this list to see lots of other great videos.
