>> I KNEW IF I DIDN'T SAY SOMETHING, I COULDN'T TRUST THAT ANYBODY ELSE WOULD.

>> CHRISTIAN WRITING HER FATHER LIKE SO MANY OTHERS SHOULD NOT HAVE DIED FROM COVID-19.

HIS DEATH IS DUE TO THE CARELESSNESS OF POLITICIANS WHO CONTINUE TO JEOPARDIZE THE HEALTH OF BROWN BODIES THROUGH A CLEAR LACK OF LEADERSHIP AND REFUSAL TO ACRE KNOWLEDGE THE SEVERITY OF THE CRISIS.

THE PRESIDENT TRAVELING TO FLORIDA TODAY A STATE WITH 11, 000 NEW INFECTIONS AND 92 DEATHS IN JUST THE PAST 24 HOURS.

BUT THE EVENT DIDN'T FOCUS ON THE VIRUS.

BUT ON ILLEGAL DRUGS AND THE PRESIDENT DID NOT WEAR A MASK AND NEITHER DID HIS SENIOR ADVISERS AND THE VISIT COMES AS AN ABC NEWS POLL OUT TODAY SHOWS AMERICANS ARE NOT HAPPY WITH HIS LEADERSHIP ON THE VIRUS, 67% DISAPPROVING OF THE PRESIDENT'S HANDLING OF THE PANDEMIC.

THE DEATH RATE MORE THAN DOUBLED.

HE'S IN IT AND I SAID HOW DO YOU THINK THE POLITICAL ECHELON IS HANDLING THIS? HE SAID I WOULD GIVE PRESIDENT TRUMP AN F MINUS.

SLOW TO IMPLEMENT THE MASK WEARING.

THE PRESIDENT DIDN'T WEAR ONE TODAY.

AND HE WANT THAT MESSAGE OUT.

>> TELL US ABOUT THIS PLACE YOU'RE IN NOW.

IS THIS FOR OVERFLOW FROM THE ICU? >> RIGHT, THERE SO MANY ICU PATIENTS THEY EX PPANDED MORE SECTIONS IN THE HOSPITAL.

THERE IS NO MORE ROOM.

THEY CREATED THIS.

IT NOT AN ICU BUT ADDITIONAL BEDS BUT COULD BE IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE.

THEY HAVEN'T ONLY REPAIRED FOR THIS BUT WILL BUILT ANOTHER EXTENSION HERE.

THAT IS HOW BAD THIS IS.

THE DEATHS HAVE BASICALLY TRIPLED OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF MONTHS.

THIS IS ONE OF THE HARDEST HIT COUNTIES IN ALL OF CALIFORNIA AND IN FACT, THE COUNTRY.

LINDSAY? >> MATT GUTMAN, THANKS FOR YOUR REPORTING, AS ALWAYS.

>> AND AS THIS COUNTRY EXPERIENCES TESTING DELAYS, PPE SHORTAGES AND A RISE IN DEATHS MANY ARE GRAPPLING WITH SCHOOS.

>> OUR THANKS TO MARCUS FOR THAT.

AS PARENTS AND EDUCATORS TRY TO DETERMINE WHAT THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR MIGHT LOOK LIKE, LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL FLORIDA.

IT'S A DIVERSE INSTITUTION WITH AN ENROLLMENT OF MORE THAN 69, 000 STUDENTS.

IT ONE OF THE LARGEST IN THE COUNTRY.

NOW IT'S PREPARING TO WELCOME BACK LESS THAN HALF OF THE STUDENT BODY IN PHYSICAL CLASSROOMS WHILE TRIPLING THE AMOUNT OF STUDENTS THAT IT CATERS TO ONLINE.

OUR WILL REEVE HAS THIS STORY.

>> AS COVID-19 CASES SURGE, THE LARGEST PUBLIC INVUUNIVERSITY I FLORIDA IS PREPARING TO WELCOME STUDENTS BACK IN WEEKS.

THE UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL FLORIDA IN ORLANDO IS MAKING DRASTIC CHANGES TO THE ON CAMPUS EXPERIENCE.

OVER A QUARTER MILE WORTH OF PLEXIGLASS IN STALLED, THE SCHOOL ERECTING THESE DISINFECTION STATIONINGS AND ISOLATION ROOMS FOR STUDENTS WHO TEST POSITIVE AND FEWER STUDENTS ON SITE.

THE SCHOOL IS LIMITING THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS THAT CAN LIVE ON CAMPUS WHEN THEY RETURN TO RESIDENCE HALLS, EVERYONE WILL HAVE THEIR OWN SINGLE ROOM.

BUT EVEN WITH ADDITIONAL PRECAUTIONS, THE STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT UNDERSTANDS HER PEERS STILL HAVE CONCERNS.

>> TO ME, STUDENT SAFETY IS THE PRIORITY AND WE HAVE TO FOCUS ON THAT.

>> WE'VE DONE A MAJOR EFFORT TO GO INTO THE CLOSE ROOM AND REDUCE THEM SO THERE IS SPACING AND CLOSEASSROOMS WITH A COUPLE HUNDRED STUDENTS WILL HAVE LIKE 40.

>> ONE SHIFTED HER APPROACH.

>> I WOULD TYPICALLY HAVE STUDENTS COME TO THE FIELD AND LEARN HOW UNIT.

NOW THEY WILL DRAW THE DIRTY DISHES IN THEIR SINK.

>> WHAT IMPACT DOES VIRTUAL LEARNING HAVE? >> IT'S NOT THAT MUCH OF A TRANSITION.

THEY ARE LOSING THAT EXPERIENCE.

SO I THINK IT'S PART OF OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT WE'RE GIVING STUDENTS THAT SOCIAL CONNECT WITH EACH OTHER BECAUSE IT'S VERY IMPORTANT TO HAVE THAT BRAND-NEW TO COLLEGE.

>> WHEN UCF RETURNS NEXT MONTH, 68% OF ITS CLASSES WILL BE VIRTUAL.

BUT AS THE LARGEST PUBLIC UNIVERSITY IN THE STATE, THERE WILL BE THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS ON CAMPUS AS THE SCHOOL RECKONS WITH A SURGE OF CASES IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA.

AND A NEW SEASON FOR UCF'S NOTABLE FOOTBALL TEAM IS A BIG QUESTION MARK BUT AS STUDENTS PREPARE TO WEAKEN THE PANDEMIC, THE SCHOOL IS STAYING THE COURSE.

>> THAT'S THE FUTURE.

THAT'S WHAT STUDENTS ARE INVESTING IN.

>> WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO IN COMING STUDENTS WHO ARE NERVOUS ABOUT WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS HERE? >> I THINK THAT I WOULD SAY REMEMBER WHY YOU CHOSE UCF OR WHATEVER SCHOOL YOU CHOSE AND REALLY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE REMOTE LEARNING.

>>> EARLIER TONIGHT, PRESIDENT TRUMP COMMUTED THE SENTENCE OF ROGER STONE.

HE WAS GOING TO EVERYTHING IS NEXT WEEK FOR OBSTRUCTION, WITNESS TAMPERING AND LYING TO CONGRESS.

HERE IS POIERRE THOMAS.

>> I THINK ROGER STONE WAS VERY UNFAIRLY MISTREATED.

THAT SMILE DISAPPEARING AFTER STONE WAS CONVICTED ON LYING TO CONGRESS AND WITNESS TAMPERING.

PROSECUTORS PROVE HE OBSTRUCTED A CONGRESSIONAL PROBE INTO POSSIBLE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN RUSSIA, WIKILEAKS AND THE 2016 TRUMP CAMPAIGN.

PRESIDENT HAS BEEN FUMING FOR MONTHS.

>> THIS HAS NOT BEEN A FAIR PROCESS.

>> PROSECUTORS RECOMMENDED THAT STONE BE SENTENCED TO SEVEN TO NINE YEARS IN PRISON BUT AFTER THE PRESIDENT CRIED FOUL, ATTORNEY GENERAL WILLIAM BARR SAYING THE SENTENCING RECOMMENDATION WAS TOO HASH.

>> DID YOU TALK TO THE PRESIDENT AT ALL ABOUT YOUR DECISION REGARDING THE RECOMMENDATIONS? >> NEVER.

>> STONE WAS SENTENCED TO THREE YEARS AND FOUR MONTHS BEHIND BARS.

>> I FELT IT WAS AN APPROPRIATE PROSECUTION AND THE SENTENCE WAS FAIR.

>> I THOUGHT YOU WEREN'T A FAN.

>> DID I SAY THAT? >> YOU DID.

>> THAT'S ACCURATE.

>> LONGER STONE HAS A FAN IN PRESIDENT TRUMP.

THIS WEEK THE PRESIDENT WAS TOLD HIS FRIEND WAS PRAYING FOR A PARDON.

TRUMP'S RESPONSE, HIS PRAYER MAY BE ANSWERED.

>> HE COMMUTED THE SENTENCE.

TELL US HOW THE WHITE HOUSE RELEASED THE NEWS? >> THEY JUST PUT OUT A STATEMENT TALKING ACT THE FACT THE PRESIDENT COME MMUTED ROGER SONS SENTENCE.

THE INVESTIGATION BY THE TEAM WAS A HOAX.

THEY SAY ROGER STONE SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN UNDER INVESTIGATION IN THE FIRST PLACE AND HE HAS HEALTH ISSUES AND THAT THE PRESIDENT STOOD IN THE GAP TO DO THE RIGHT THING FOR ROGER STONE.

>> THEY SAID THIS CASE HAS NO MERIT.

THE ATTORNEY GENERAL TOLD YOU SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

>> REMARKABLE.

THE ATTORNEY GENERAL REITERATED THIS WEEK IN AN INTERVIEW WITH US THAT HE BELIEVES THAT ROGER STONE'S PROSECUTION WAS RIGHTEOUS AND BELIEVES THAT RODGER STONE DESERVED PRISON TIME BUT ACKNOWLEDGED IT WOULD BE THE PRESIDENT'S CALL.

>> PIERRE THOMAS, THANKS HAVING YOUR — FOR YOUR REPORTING ARCHLT TROPICAL STORM IS BARRELLING INTO THE NORTHEAST AFTER MAKING LANDFALL NEAR ATLANTIC CITY NEW JERSEY BRINGING STRONG WINDS AND FLOODED STREETS FROM DELAWARE TO MASSACHUSETTS.

FOR ABC NEWS LIVE, I'M DEVIN IN WASHINGTON.

>> WE'RE JOINED BY A SENIOR ADVISOR TO FORMER VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN'S 2020 CAMPAIGN.

THANKS FOR JOINING US.

>> THANKS FOR HAVING ME.

>> JOE BIDEN SAID THE PLAN WOULD BRING BACK THE JOBS LOST THIS YEAR TO THE PANDEMIC AND CREATE AT LEAST 5 MILLION NEW JOBS IN MANUFACTURING AND INVASION.

NEW DATA SHOWS 33 MILLION PEOPLE COLLECTED UNEMPLOYMENT CHECKS IN THE THIRD WEEK OF JUNE.

HOW CAN YOUR CAMPAIGN PROMISE YOU'LL BE ABLE TO BRING THOSE JOBS BACK IN ADDITION TO CREATING 5 MILLION MORE JOBS? >> WELL, LOOK, FIRST, THANK YOU FOR HIGHLIGHTING THE PLAN.

THE REALITY IS VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN'S BUILD BACK BETTER PLAN, WHAT HE UNVEILED YESTERDAY WAS OVER ARCHING SCOPE AND 5 MILLION JOBS IS ONE FLANK OF THE PLAN.

IN THE COMING WEEKS, WE'LL BE TALKING CLEAN ENERGY.

THERE WILL BE PIECES ON THE CARE ECONOMY AND RACIAL EQUITY THAT'S THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE FLANK OVEROUR JOBS BUT WE HAVE A SPECIAL PILLAR MOBILIZATION FOR RACIAL EQUITY.

THIS PLAN MEETS THE MOMENT OF WHERE WE ARE BUT ALSO DOES NOT IGNORE THE FACT THAT LONG BEFORE COVID, LANLINDSEY, OUR ECONOMY STRUGGLING.

FAMILIES WERE STRUGGLING.

THEY WERE CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR CHILDREN'S ECONOMIC FUTURE.

THE UNEMPLOYMENT.

HOW DO WE BEAT THIS VIRUS? BY TESTING.

NOT WISHING THEM AWAY AND THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IN OUR OPINION AND DONALD TRUMP AMONG THE FOLKS IN THE ADMINISTRATION HAVE TRULY FAILED THE AMANIER C — AMERICAN PEOPLE.

>> WE REPORTED MILLIONS OF SMALL BUSINESSES ARE AT RISK NOW AS YOU KNOW AND MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SURVIVE THE PANDEMIC.

SO HOW DOES THE VICE PRESIDENT PLAN TO RECOVER ALL THOSE JOBS LOST WHICH MANY ECONOMISTS SAY COULD BE LOST PERMANENTLY? >> WELL, LOOK, WHILE THE PLAN UNVEILED IS BUY AMERICAN PLAN AND A PLAN THAT MAKES SURE THE FUTURE IS NOT JUST MADE IN AMERICA AS MANY PEOPLE IN SOME CAMPAIGNS INCLUDED WOULD SAY IT'S MADE IN ALL OF AMERICA, EVERY COMMUNITY AND EVERY WORKER.

VICE PRESIDENT BIDEBIDEN'S PLAN CREATES JOBS BY MANUFACTURING.

WE ALL REMEMBER AT THE BEGINNING AT THE ONSET OF THIS CRISIS THIS PANDEMIC THE LACK OF PPE THAT WAS AVAILABLE, PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AVAILABLE ACROSS THIS COUNTRY.

NURSES AND DOCTORS WEARING TRASH BAGS BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T HAVE — THEY WERE OUT OF GOWNS.

THE REALITY IS WE DON'T EVER WANT TO BE IN THAT POSITION AGAIN SO VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN'S PLAN WOULD CREATE JOBS BUT THAT'S NOT THE ONLY PIECE.

THERE IS A CLEAN ECONOMY AND INFRASTRUCTURE.

THERE IS A CARING ECONOMY.

WE TALK ABOUT CARING, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT CHILD CARE AND ALSO ELDERLY CARE, THE AGEING CITIZENS AND SO THERE ARE LOTS OF PIECES HERE AND WHAT I'LL NOTE IS VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN'S PLAN IS SPECIFIC TO REAL PEOPLE IN AMERICA WORKING FOLKS, WORKING FAMILIES WHEREAS WHEN DONALD TRUMP TALKS ABOUT AMERICA FIRST, HE'S TALKING ABOUT CORPORATIONS.

>> THERE ARE STILL SOME PROTESTS TAKING PLACE.

YOUNG AMERICANS ENGAGED IN POLITICS LIKE WE HAVEN'T SEEN IN GENERATIONS.

HOW DO YOU CONVENTION YOUNG PEOPLE CALLING FOR REAL CHANGE IN AN OVERALL POLITICS AS USUAL THAT JOE BIDEN REPRESENTS THE FUTURE WHEN HE WENT TO WASHINGTON ALMOST HALF A CENTURY AGO AND WOULD BE IF ELECTED THE OLDEST FIRST TERM PRESIDENT IN AMERICAN HISTORY.

>> WE HAVE TO SPEAK TO YOUNG FOLKS AND MEET THEM WHERE WE ARE.

THAT IS WHAT OUR CAMPAIGN IS DOING ACROSS THIS COUNTRY.

VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN HIMSELF WHEN HE GAVE HIS ADDRESS ABOUT A MONTH AGO, HE TALKED ABOUT THE FACT THAT THIS UNREST IS NOT JUST ON THE HEELS AND JUST ABOUT GEORGE FLOYD AND AHMAUD ARBERY AND BREAONNA TAYLOR BUT THE ECONOMIC DEVASTATION.

MANY OF THE FOLKS JOBLESS, MANY OF THOSE DEAD ARE BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE AND THOSE YOUNG FOLKS KNOW IT.

WE HAVE TO SPEAK DIRECTLY TO THEM BUT ALSO PUT FORTH A BOLD VISION.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE BELIEVE FOLKS WANT RESULTS AND THAT IS WHAT VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN IS PROVIDING.

ALSO LEADERSHIP.

THERE IS A VACUUM.

THE LAST POINT IS THIS, I LIVE IN WASHINGTON D.

C.

AND THE FIRST NIGHTS PROTESTS BROKE OUT ACROSS THIS COUNTRY, IN WASHINGTON D.

C.

THE PROTESTERS DID NOT GO TO THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE HERE IN THE CITY.

THEY DID NOT GO TO THE WILSON BILLING WHERE THE MAYOR WORKS.

THEY WENT TO THE WHITE HOUSE AND THEY HAVE STAYED OUTSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE CONSISTENT LY DEMANDING CHANGE.

>> YOUNG BLACK VOTERS AREN'T ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT JOE BIDEN.

THE BIDEN CAMPAIGN RESPONDED BY PROMISING TO ADD $300 MILLION FOR COMMUNITY POLICING PROGRAMS.

THAT WAS CRITICIZED AS IRRESPONSIBLE AND TONE DEAF AND THE NOTION BIDEN IS TOO WEDDED TO THE PAST TO GRASP THE MOMENTS POTENTIAL.

WHAT IS YOUR RESPONSE TO THAT? >> MY RESPONSE TO THAT IS LOOK, YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT THE TOTALITY.

A LOT OF WHAT IS INTRODUCED IN THE HOUSE BILL ABOUT A MONTH AGO WERE THINGS VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN WAS TALKING ABOUT WELL OVER A MONTH AND A HALF BEFORE THAT.

SO YES, THAT “USA TODAY” OP ED HE TALKED ABOUT SUPPORT AND UNDERSTAND IFFING FOR THE COPS PROGRAM WHICH IS COMMUNITY POLICING BUT WHAT HE ALSO SPOKE ABOUT AND WAS VERY CLEAR ON LOOK, POLICE DEPARTMENTS IN A BIDEN ADMINISTRATION WHO DO NOT INSTITUTE REFORMS, ROGUE POLICE DEPARTMENTS SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE AND SHOULD NOT BE PRIORITIZED FOR FUNDING.

THEY SHOULD LOSE FUNDING.

HE REITERATED THAT IN THE CONVERSATION WITH A NOTED HEALTH CARE ACTIVIST THIS WEEK.

VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN BELIEVES WE HAVE TO CREATE A WHOLPOLICY THA BANNING CHOKE HOLDS AND BENCHMARKS FOR POLICE DEPARTMENTS BUT ALSO MEANS LOOKING TO SOME OTHER ISSUES IN OUR SOCIETY.

SO WE TALK ABOUT THE LACK OF FUNDING FOR EDUCATION AND HEALTH CARE AND LACK OF FUNDING FOR PRANKLY AFTE FRANKLY AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS AND LARGE AND SMALL.

THESE T THOSE ARE THINGS VICE PRESIDENT HAVE SPOKEN TO AND WILL CHAMPION AS PRESIDENT.

>> WHEN IT COMES TO HIS PICK FOR V.

P.

, AMY KLOBUCHAR SAID THIS IS HISTORIC.

I BELIEVE I THINK THIS IS A MOMENT TO PUT A WOMAN OF COLOR ON THAT TICKET.

AND ALSO JUST LAST WEEK “THE WASHINGTON POST” SAID YOU HELPED ORCHESTRATE A CONVERSATION BETWEEN BIDEN AND PROMINENT BLACK WOMEN PUSHING HIPM TO CHOOSE AN AFRICAN AMERICAN NNING MATE.

DO YOU AGREE? >> WE GREATLY APPRECIATE EVERYTHING SENATOR KLOBUCHAR HAS DONE FOR OUR CAMPAIGN AND A BLOCKBUSTER IN TEXAS AND VIRTUAL EVENT.

THIS IS A DECISION FOR VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN TO MAKE AND ABSOLUTELY HE HAS HEARD.

THEY COULD REPORT HE WAS ON A CALL WITH WOMEN, PROMINENT AFRICAN AMERICAN THAT WOULD LIKE TO SEE AN AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN AS VICE PRESIDENT IS EVIDENCE OF THAT.

HE'S ALSO HEARD CONCERNS OF THE LATINO COMMUNITY AND LGBTQ PLUS COMMUNITY WHO SAY THEY WOULD LIKE TO SEE A RUNNING MATE PICK THAT REPRESENTS THEIR COMMUNITY.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN IS GOING TO PICK SOMEONE WHO CAN MIRROR THE RELATIONSHIP WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA AND COULD BE A GOOD GOVERNING PARTNER BECAUSE THE WORK BEFORE A BIDEN ADMINISTRATION WILL BE A MISS.

HE HAS TO HAVE SOMEONE HE CAN GIVE PRESIDENTIAL AUTHORITY TO LIKE PRESIDENT OBAMA GAVE TO HIM AND I'M CONFIDENT HE'LL FIND THE RUNNING MATE.

NO NEWS TO BREAK YET.

WE DON'T KNOW YET.

STAY TUNED.

>> WE WERE HOPING YOU WOULD BREAK THAT FOR US HERE.

SIMONE SANDERS.

>> NOT TODAY.

>> SIMONE SANDERS WITH THE BIDEN CAMPAIGN.
