good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm john berman. nice to be with you again. it is monday, august 3rd. the political world buzzing over a possible shake-up in the 2016 race. the new york times reporting vice president joe biden has begun actively ex-ploreing a white house run. the democrats close to biden said he has not made up his mind. a biden spokeswoman says the family is still grieving and the rumor is premature and inappropriate. he would face a daunting prospect taking on hillary clinton who has ramped up in a number of states. the clinton campaign is not
worried. >> we will let him make a decision. however hard it is to secure a democratic nomination it is hard. there are views in the democratic party. we will be prepared to handle whatever comes our way. >> the clinton campaign rolled out the first set of television ads in iowa and new hampshire. there is just as much drama on the republican side where frontrunner donald trump ensnared in a scandal over facebook posts. sunlen serfaty has the latest. >> reporter: john and christine, the donald trump campaign saying they have fired one of the political advisors sam nunberg over facebook postings of his racially charged dating back to 2007. now he has denied any wrongdoing. said the posts weren't his. on friday the campaign said
they would investigate these claims and by sunday he was gone. now all of this controversy comes as the spotlight is on trump as he enters the debate stage as the frontrunner with the understanding he has a tar target on his back. he said he predicts his opponents will come after him. he says he will not throw any punches. at least not the first one. >> i always counter-punched. i'm not looking to start anything. a lot of people say they are getting ready and they have their lines given to them by the pollsters. everything is perfectly put down by a pollster what to say and how to attack me. if that comes, it comes. i'll have to handle it at the time. >> and chris christie downplayed the trump rise in the polls saying anyone can do well for a month. it is up to trump if he wants to be a serious candidate. here's what he told jake tapper
on "state of the union." >> i think donald will be as serious a candidate as donald wants to be. he will determine through the depth of his answers whether he is a serious candidate. anyone can do well for a month in this business. especially if you have talent and personality. donald has both of those things. let's see how it goes. >> reporter: on the democratic side sources telling cnn that vice president joe biden is considering a run. he is being encouraged by friends and advisors. it seems at the heart of this is what his son beau biden thought before he passed away in may. he encouraged his father to run. he is expected to potentially decide in the next month or so after discussing it with family. thank you for that.
the senate votes on a bill to halt funding for planned parenthood. democrats are confident it will not get the votes needed. rand paul is not one of them but he wants funding pulled after a series of undercover individual wroevideos appearing to show staffers talking about selling fetal issue. >> they manipulating the baby to get to body parts and selling the liver and the doctors cavalierly saying livers are popular for sale. i don't think most don't want their tax dollars going to this. i think what is some more morally re repungnant why fund it.

exchange information that they have and to decide how they will move forward. how they will analyze the piece. are they agreeing on what they want from the analysis comes wednesday when they arrive here. now joining them will be malaysian authorities. malaysia airline people. a specific team that looks at mh-370. french authorities and air transport police and a french prosecutor leading the investigation here in france, john. that is an interesting angle. four french nationals on board mh-370. their families have brought a civil case. they brought forward manslaughter with regards to hijacking or terrorist activities on board mh-370. that is why the french prosecutor's office will be involved. they are leading the investigation and members of the
malaysian malaysian judiciary will be there. you have mentioned the flaperon part of the 777 aircraft. it is yet to be confirmed as part of mh-370. that is the definitive analysis that will happen over the next few days. of course there is a lot of debris now. the people are out looking for on reunion island. local people have been out. cnn crews have seen them combing the area trying to help the investigation and see if they can find anything else. so far, nothing else found has been identified as part of a plane or indeed any mh-370 debris. this morning, the malaysian transport minister in a tweet said the debris is consistent with drift analysis determined by experts. how this is the time that any kind of debris from a potential crash in the indian ocean where we believe mh-370 went down may
have washed up close to reunion island island. he says we have to wait for complete analysis. >> that comes wednesday. the renewed focus on the islands. thank you so much. time for an early start on your money. asian shares are lower. european shares and u.s. stock futures are optimistic. in greece stocks plunging 30%. the stock market reopened today after being closed for five weeks. there are restrictions on local investors to keep money from flooding out of the greek banks. they are only allowed to buy with existing cash. the stock market and the banks shutdown at the end of june to prevent collapse. withdraws are still limited to 420 euro a week. that is what happens when you shutdown for five weeks. when it opens, it plunges. >> 20% drop. happening now, dozens of
all of california or at least 21 wildfires are burning right now. the fires threaten thousands more. hundreds of families have been evacuated. the rocky fire 100 miles north of san francisco is barely 5% contained right now. let's get more from stephanie elam. >> reporter: we are inside the evacuation area for the rocky fire. above us is active fire. it has plenty of fuel that it can burn at this point. this is why we are seeing so many firefighters out here monitoring this line. we are standing along highway
16. california 16. what they want to do is contain the fire so it doesn't jump across the road. a lot of back fires built on the back side. as you look at the active fire here you can see the wind is pushing it. that is a big part of the problem. when there is this much wind and low humidity this is the perfect fire. this is the perfect environment for the fire that has ballooned as quickly as that. >> let's go to meteorologist derek van dam. >> good morning, john and christine. we have over 20 fires raging across california as we speak. we focus in on the rocky fire. look at the terrain across the area. almost 3,000 firefighters having difficult time navigating the steep cliffs and getting at the individual spot fires.
only 5% contained at the moment. 54,000 acres have been burned so far. look at that. 6,000 plus structured threatened. the weather will not play along too much. sunny and dry for the week. it appears the humidity levels will stay low and the wind remain light to moderate. this is what the ground looks like in the arid parts of california. 46% of the state is in exceptional drought. this nasa video shows the rainfall conditions over the past six months. notice the colors over the eastern half of the united states compared to the west. we certainly wish we had that rainfall in california but that's not the case. conditions across the new england area is damaging winds and possible dangerous conditions for pittsburgh. back to you. derek, thanks.

all together. it was with the bow that walter palmer wounded cecil and killed him. christine. >> a lot of attention on lions, but hunting and poaching in africa effects a lot of different animals actually. >> reporter: that's right. we have been talking about lions a lot in the last few days. that is a serious issue. lion numbers have dropped 90% in the several decades. lions itself are not endangered in southern africa. what we have seen is them being hunted and poached. also huge poaching in zimbabwe and other parts of africa of rh rhino and elephant. it is often weak environmental management that is causing the poachers to come in and sending goods to china. this is effecting the
populations badly. in a few generations, you might not see the animals in the wild at all. many say this issue of cecil the lion is the way to open the door on the bigger issue to tackle poaching and hunting. in fact u.s. congress has a bill in place that they will work on to try to do this and the u.n. has also announced tough new rules on transporting animal products. >> david mckenzie, thank you. the race for president intenseify intensifies. donald trump fires an advisor and hillary clinton getting ready for a possible biden run. the new clinton ads, the first, released overnight.

a possible shakeup in the 2016 race. the new york times reporting that vice president joe biden has started actively exploring a run. his late son beau lobbied his father to run before his death. people close to biden said he has not made up his mind. a biden spokesperson says the bidens are still grieving and speculation about a white house run is premature and inappropriate inappropriate. the vice president would face a daunting task catching up to hillary clinton. the clinton campaign is not worrying a decision of joe biden. >> we will let him make his decision. however hard it is to secure the democratic nomination is however hard it is. we have no illusions. we never thought this was going
to be to be easy. we will be prepared to handle. >> the clinton campaign rolled out the first set of tv ads with $1 million ad buys in iowa and new hampshire. in one ad, she tells the story of her mother dorothy. >> when she needed a champion someone was there. i think about all the dorothys all over america who fight for their families who never give up. that's why i'm doing this. that's why i've always done this. for all the dorothys. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. >> just as much drama on the republican side. the staffer for donald trump was ensnared in a scandal in a facebook post. we have sunlen serfaty with more from the white house. >> reporter: john and christine, the donald trump campaign announced they fired one of their political advisers sam
nunberg after it was uncovered of facebook posts that were racially charged dating back to 2007. he said the posts weren't his. on friday the campaign said they would investigate these claims. by sunday he was gone. now all this controversy comes as there is a spotlight on trump as he enters the debate stage. there is an understanding on his part he has somewhat of a target on his back being the frontrunner. he said over the weekend he predicts a lot of his opponents will come after him. he said he will not throw any punches. at least not the first one. >> i always counter-punched. i'm not looking to start anything. a lot of people say they are ready and they have the lines by the pollsters. everything is perfectly put down by a pollster. what to say and how to attack me. if that comes, it comes.
>> reporter: chris christie this weekend downplayed the recent trump rise from the polls. saying anyone can do well for a month. he said it is up to trump to be a serious candidate on thursday night. here is what he told jake tapper. >> i think donald will be as serious a candidate as donald wants to be. he will determine through the depth of his answers whether he is a serious candidate or isn't. that's what i mean. anybody can do well for a month in this business. especially if you have talent and personality. donald has both those things. let's see how it goes. >> reporter: meanwhile, on the democratic side, a potential shake up here. sources telling cnn that vice president joe biden is considering a run. he is encouraged by friend and advisers. it does seem at the heart of this is what his son beau biden thought before he passed away in
may. he encouraged his father to run. we know biden has not made up his mind at this point. he is expected to potentially decide in the next month or so. john and christine. thanks so much. the senate votes on a bill to halt federal funding for planned parenthood. democrats are confident it will in the get the votes it needs. some republicans are calling for a government shutdown. rand paul of kentucky not one of them but he does want funding pulled after the undercover videos showing the staffers discussing money and issue of fetal tissue. >> they manipulating the baby and turning the baby around to get to body parts and selling the liver. the doctors saying livers are popular for sale. i think most americans don't want their tax dollars going to this. when something is some more morally
wrong, why put tax dollars to this. the obama administration will announce a climate change plan designed to dramatically reduce greenhouse an gas emissions from goal burning plants. the plan calls for a 32% reduction in power sector carbon pollution by 2030 and more aggressive transition to renewable energy and wind and solar. republicans are vowing to this this to court. and mitch mcconnell sent letters to all 50 governors. the president authorized the use of air power to defend a new american backed fighting force in syria. this raises the risk of america getting drawn into the assad regime. the forces are committing to
fighting isis, not government troops, but if they are attack by either u.s. air power will be used. preparations under way in france to examine part of the flaperon that washed up in the indian ocean on reunion island. that flaperon is from a boeing 777. confirmation it is from mh-370 will wait until wednesday. for the latest let's bring in saima mosa in toulouse. >> reporter: those will take place in the south of france where forensic experts and scientific teams will take a closer look. officials flying here from around the world, the french authorities, malaysian officials
and malaysian judicials. they will be joined by air transport police from france as well. chinese officials will join the team because, of course, the majority of people were from china. the flight from kuala lumpur to beijing. the flaperon is part of a 777 aircraft but not yet confirmed of mh-370. that will be determined inside the lab. hopefully there will be definitive answers on that. to that end, the malaysian transport minister tweeted that look this piece is in line with drift analysis by experts saying they were determined given the analysis of where we believe mh-370 could have gone down this piece would have drifted across the indian ocean toward reunion island where this piece
was found. he is reminded he must not speculate until we determine this is from mh-370. to that end, over the weekend, a lot of other pieces have been turning up on reunion island. one object that was considered an object of interest but so far, i want to make it clear to everyone nothing has been determined to be from mh-370 or indeed since this flaperon arriving here from any aircraft at all. reunion island we have teams keeping a close eye on developments there. the search has been expanded to the outer islands. >> thank you for that from toulouse. time for an early start on your money. european and asian shares are lower. u.s. stock futures are down. puerto rico defaulting on its debts. the u.s. territory missed a $58 million debt payment to its public finance corporation over the weekend. that's just a small piece of

opposite side. as you look at the active fire here, you see the wind is really pushing it. that is a big part of the problem with fires like this. when there is this much wind and low humidity it is the perfect environment for a wildfire for one ballooning as quickly as this one has. >> those pictures are just so dramatic. >> they have the work cut out for them with the drought. what does the weather hold for california? let's go to meteorologist derrekek van dam. >> wildfires raging across california. we focus on the rocky fire. it has spread exponentially over the weekend. upwards of 54,000 acres burned. 5% containment. 6,000 structures threatened from the spot fires. look at how rugged the terrain is. difficult for the 3,000 or so
firefighters to battle. the weather doesn't look to play along. it will stay sunny and dry and low humidity for the week. winds are light to moderate from the southwest. this is what some of the arid landscape looks like. the state has 43% coverage of exceptional drought conditions. here comes the cold front. that will bring a chance of severe weather later this afternoon. that means pittsburgh to columbus. look out for large hail and damaging winds. in new york it spells a cool spell for you. the middle of the workweek is comfortable. back to you. thanks derek. this amazing video just in. the white tornado silhouette against black clouds tearing across a field southwest of des moines. this is part of the thunderstorm system in iowa. no damage reported from this
particular twister. boy, that's something to see. >> look at that picture. a manhunt under way in memphis, tennessee for a suspect who murdered a police officer. a suspect gunned down sean bolton. bolton interrupted a drug deal and got into a struggle with this man. the suspect shot him several times. the suspect and the car's driver sped away but the driver turned himself in. the suspect remains at large this morning. although they are shaken up bolton's officers are determined to get this suspect off the streets. >> when you look at the individual you are looking at a coward coward. you literally destroyed a family. look at the impact it has on this department and this community and this city for less than two grams of marijuana.
>> the mayor of memphis says the white house has contacted city officials to show support. u.s. marshals have joined the manhunt for the suspect. federal agents join the baltimore police department homicide unit following the deadliest month in decades. 191 people have been killed in baltimore since january 1st. 191. 45 of those homicides happened last month alone. here we are three days in august and ten people have already been shot. ten agents from the fbi and secret service and d.e.a. will join 20 other agents working murder cases on the streets of baltimore. the fbi and secret services are joining an investigation in new mexico after two issues at churches. the first happened in a mailbox and the second outside a trash

this morning we are learning of a second lion hunted illegally in africa and an american is wanted for the killing. wildlife officials say it happened in april and the guide was hunting without a permit. this on the heels of a death of a lion at the hands of another american. we have david mckenzie live with more from johannesburg. >> reporter: john it does appear based on the evidence suggested by the zimbabwe parks authority there was a long trend of illegally hunting animals or at least hunting without the proper permits on the margins of the park. they named another american they
say was involved in the illegal hunt earlier this year in april. they have arrested the safari operator who organized that hunt john. they do say they will clamp down on trophy hunting. banning hunting on the margins on the park where cecil the lion was lured out and killed and ban bow hunting, specifically the hunting that walter palmer killed cecil the lion last month which caused such an outcry global globally. >> david, there was the outcry for the dentist who shot cecil the lion with a bow and arrow to be extradited. any sign that will happen? >> reporter: experts say it will be a tall order to extradite him to zimbabwe from the u.s. since the treaty was put in place. there have not been cases of
americans sent over. it is a legal issue of did this dentist do something in zimbabwe which would be considered a crime in the u.s. and a political one. whether the u.s. will be seen to send someone to zimbabwe a country with huge problems in the judicial system and history of bad treatment of prisoners in prison. it is probably a tall order as this point. certainly zimbabwe officials are trying to point the finger to the u.s. hunters. there may be politics in there. >> a lot of politics. david, thanks so much. that grilled cheese sandwich could be a choking hazard. pay attention to the kraft singles recall. we have that next.
