7:12 am
willing to go to get change. it's easy for the clinton campaign to say, oh, it's still trump. he'll never win. in a change election you're playing with fire that is your attitude so a close race is better to be widened. >> dan senor, thank you for being here. samsung galaxy 7 phone users are told to turn off their phone immediately. dozens of phones have caught reportedly fire since its release last month. the government says samsung has not done enough. kris van cleave is inside the consumer product safety commission in bethesda, m. >> reporter: there are 93 22 reports of the battery inside this phone overheating and property damage and people burned and that includes fires. the message this morning is turn this phone off!

7:14 am
>> reporter: dan ackerman of cnet says. >> the process took a lot longer than anybody thought because samsung tried to do it by themselves at first. >> reporter: kay from the cpsc agrees. he says samsung should have brought in the government right away to handle the recall. >> it's not a recipe for a successful recall for a company to go out its own. and that, in my mind, anybody who thinks that a company going on its own is going to provide the best recall for that company and, more importantly, for the consumer, need to have more than their phone checked. >> reporter: strong words there. 97% of these phones that were sold in the united states and a million or so have been sold in the united states have the defective battery. only about 130,000 have been brought in for a refund or exchange for a fixed phone and there are reports the cpsc is looking into other samsung devices that have had fire issues. >> oh, boy. . thank you, kris. an ohio police officer is on

8:05 am
not doing enough or the syrians aren't listening. it could be an important deal because it could prevent the regime from flying over poopgs areas and prevent barrel bombing and the kind of things we have seen the regime do so long and turn the russians turn to what they were supposed to do is fight terrorists instead of vilve civilians. but we need cease-fire for seven days and humanitarian access which we don't have right now. >> secretary kerry said this is the last chance. do you believe this is the last chance of this plan? >> we are certainly investing in it as if it is. the suffering, as you said, charlie, of the people has been so great. this is a real opportunity. the united states and russia have been negotiating for months to get into this level of specifity but russia has to deliver a regime -- >> is there a difference between state and defense in terms of how much you can trust the

author. the book you said, why does the united states stand so idly by? back then, you had it was american officials chose not to intervene. don't you believe that is happening today in syria? >> syria is a very complex picture. there are thousands of armed groups. the question, again, of what military intervention would achieve, where you would do it and how you would do it in a way the terrorists wouldn't be the one to take advantage of it has been extremely challenging. but the idea that we have not been, quote, doing anything on syria i think is absurd. we have done everything short of waging war against the asawed regi -- assad regime and having success against isil on the ground which is of great importance to the american people. >> president obama is going to make a big announcement about the refuges in the coming days, correct? >> next week when the heads of state gather, the united states and president are doing what he does very well at these heads of

8:09 am
we need to ensure enforcement of the resolution passed and put in place new sanctions in the wake of what they have just done, but we need china, which is the -- has the most leverage over north korea and not infinite leverage but north korea is difficult and not to crack but use its influence to get north korea back to the table. it impedes the technology you need to do bad things but if you would it's political talks that get them to give up your nuclear program and we need china to turn the heat up and that includes by closing all loopholes in the sanctions regime that exists. >> ambassador, always good to have you at the table. good to see you. >> thank you. sitting and looking at your computer screen can be bad for you. they spend hours staring at these monitors in a dark room with all of that blue light. how as to deal with
