10:01 pm
them second hour of "cnn newsroom" begins right now. we will begin with that fiery clash between republican presidential candidate donald trump and another high-profile tv journalist. a few hours ago, mr. trump was holding a news conference in iowa when a univision anchor tried to ask a question about his immigration policies. >> excuse me, sit down. you weren't called. sit down. sit down. go ahead. no, you don't. you haven't been called. go back to univision. go ahead. go ahead. go ahead. [ inaudible ] sit down, please. you weren't called.
10:02 pm
go. yes, go ahead. >> security escorted ramos from the room. he was allowed to return and asked about trump's immigration policy. >> yes. good. good to have you back. >> thank you. -- [ inaudible ] in a humane fashion, believe me. i have a bigger heart than you do. i want them to come back and get documentation so they become legal. you know what it is called management. you are not used to good management because you are always talking about government. let me just tell you, government is incompetent. >> in recent weeks ramos has been critical of donald trump's
10:03 pm
comments on immigration on cnn monday night he accused trump of spreading hate. the same campaign stop in iowa trump was asked about reigniting his feud with fox news host megyn kelly. this started a few weeks ago during the first republican debate and again this week when he retweeted a post that called kelly a bill bow. fox is demanding an apology. >> she actually should be apologizing to me but i would not do that. >> why should she apologize to you? >> because i thought her questioning and attitude was totally inappropriate. it is a small amount element in my life, megyn kelly. i don't care about megyn kelly. but i won't apologize. she should probably apologize to me but i just don't care. >> it seems donald trump can say pretty much anything that causes controversy and it generates attention. we have never seen anything lake this from a presidential can
10:04 pm
day. >> donald trump is not just criticizing fellow republican candidates for president, he is going after media members. sometimes in highly personal ways. not entirely new of course. politicians in the press have been fighting since there have been politicians and there's been a press. donald trump is taking it to a new level. partly through his use of twitter. it is like he is responding and reacting in realtime and he knows it. thinking back to last night when donald trump went after megyn kelly the fox news star in a series of nasty tweets, retweeting fans who called her a bill bow and said she was a waste. trump suggested she should not a have a primetime show on fox. we saw her boss roger ailes come out firing with a statement that said in part, donald trump's surprise unprovoked attack is unacceptable as it is disturbing. donald trump rarely apologizes though in this case he should. trump almost instantly said no, he will not apologize.
10:05 pm
he called kelly not a quality journalist and said he hopes she improves in the future. for now the two are in a standoff. the number one channel for conservatives versus the number one candidate for republican president at the moment locked in this contest and it means for now trump will not appear on fox news. let's talk about univision, the press conference was broadcast on the cable news channels, including fox. we saw ramos kicked out and then allowed back in. thenned a had an interesting debate with trump. ramos had been trying to get an interview with trump for many months. he found his requests ignored so he sided to go to iowa. i am told he wasn't sure he would be allowed in the press conference. turned out he was before he was removed and let back in. it seemed like a publicity stunt but a legitimate journalistic moment because you saw ramos challenging trump, trying to get information out of him. i'm told by the head of univision and fusion that employs ramos they'd like a sit
10:06 pm
down interview for the two to talk. we'll see if that happens. of course trump battling the media and benefitting the media. a friend of the media, perhaps because he is generating story lines and sound bytes and ratings all summer long. back to you. >> thanks to brian for that. donald trump isn't the only republican candidate with the blunt brash talk. one of his rifles, lindsey graham from south carolina didn't hold back during an interview with cnn. he warned if trump wins the nomination the party will lose the presidential election and he went on to say they would deserve to lose. >> the policies that mr. trump is proposing are demagoguery. his approach to describe ing illegal immigrants is hurting us with hispanics. come to south carolina, i'll beat his brains out. i know my state. this is a silly season of politics. >> assuming senator graham meant
10:07 pm
beat his brains out in a political sense not a liberal one. that won't be easy. donald trump is way ahead in the polling in south carolina, leading with 30% and graham down at 4% of likely primary voters in his own home state. asian markets, investors are taking a breath today. stocks have been bouncing between gains and losses after china cut rates and lowered the amount of cash banks have to keep on reserve. all to stimulate the economy. the result so far, stimulate the economy. tokyo is way up, 3%. hong kong up 1%. the kospi up 2% and turn around in australia. the big number everyone has been watching the shanghai 0 composite, up 1%. it had been up and down, up and down and now up again. live to hong kong and our asia
10:08 pm
pacific editor andrew stevens. if you look at these numbers, especially out of shanghai it has been up and down. does anyone know what to make by the moves by the central bank? >> before i get in to that analysis, i could look at shanghai now and tell you it was up 3%, just come back from the lunch break and the market is up 3% and now up 2 1/2%. so, we were talking earlier about they didn't seem to be a lot of volatility in the morning session but it seems to be returning in the positive sense in the afternoon. in that the markets are headed higher. there's relief in shanghai, investors in shanghai that the government has finally moved. remember, there were two days when investors, like most markets, were left to fend for themselves and we saw the result of that. the market down 15 odd percent in two days there had been calls for bay swring to do something. after the market close yesterday
10:09 pm
they did something. they cut interest rates and cut the amount of money the banks need to have in reserve for the central bank. that's a positive sign for investors and they are going back in. what's important here, john, this is by no means a true market. what we are seeing at the moment, the market going up, it could be relief from real investors buying in or companies buying on because they have been told to buy by the state. so it is very difficult to gauge exactly how real this rebound is. we still have a couple of hours to go. anything could happen. >> saw that on wall street. had this great day, in positive territory, 215 and it fell off a cliff. the problem by not knowing what is going on in china is like a the over arching problem here. they are cutting interest rates an the reduction in the serve rate requirement. they may work in the short term but in the long term could they
10:10 pm
do more harm than good? >> at the moment, the jury is out on that. to answer that question you have to go to 2009, the heat of the global financial crisis when the world was falling apart, the financial world was falling apart. china stepped in very decisively in to its own economy and unveiled a massive stimulus plan to stop the rub. which did work. it stabilize the chinese economy. the one bright spot in the global economy. there was a cost to that. the cost was money found its way in to property and livestock. we started to get bubbles apeering. china does not want to go back to bubble territory by artificially stimulating the economy. by the same token it won't let the economy if go in to a free fall either. they a fine line to walk to get it right. will the measures help, yes, will they overstimit will the economy, unlikely at this stage
10:11 pm
given the fact we have had five cuts since november of last year and not much happened. we need to know, a lot of the economists here in hong kong, that look, spend their lives to look at china say it is not as bad as many other people in other parts of the world think it s. it is weaker but not critically weak. >> thank you. wall street had what many hoped would be turn around tuesday but it ended with a late-day plunge in negativer to toir. the dow closed down six days in a row. the first time in three years. by late afternoon the ral rally faded and the dow closed off 200.sdashing any hopes for an end to the recent turmoil. you can get a closer look at what's behind the market maddin' on wall street and around the

world at cnnmoney.com. the u.french prosecutor say there is clear evidence he wanted to kill everyone on board. we get more if brian todd. >> reporter: he came out of the train bathroom with no shirt on, armed with an assault rifle. automatic pistol and more than 200 rounds of ammunition. it could have been a bloodbath. paris' chief prosecutor for the first time reveals what he says is ayoub el khazzani's intent to commit a terrorist act. >> translator: while on the train ayoub el khazzani was looking at jihadi you tube sites which called for people to carry out terrorist acts. >> reporter: a far cry he was on the train to rob passengers. what the suspect didn't have, according to one of the americans who took him down is

skill in firing his weapon. >> he clearly had no firearm s training whatsoever. and yes, if he knew what he was do ing, or even just got lucky and did the right thing, he would have been able to operate through all eight of those magazines and we would have all been in trouble and probably wouldn't be here today. >> reporter: the prosecutor's charging ayoub el khazzani with attempting murder, attempted mass murder and membership in a terrorist organization. and cnn has learned from european security officials about ayoub el khazzani's travels before he boarded the amsterdam to paris train in brussels. they say he immigrated from france spain where he was radicalized at a mosque. he claims to have bounced around in cities in france, germany and belgium and claims to have been homeless in for a period living in a park in brussels. french prosecutor said ayoub el khazzani was flagged for surveillance in france but never actually followed. a german security source says when he flew through berlin in
10:14 pm
may, he was flagged for a search and allowed to proceed. how could he have fallen through the cracks with two of europe's top security agencies. >> for an individual, if you are going to surveil him, you need ten, 20, 30 or more police to surveil someone, follow them to make sure they don't pick up on the tail. when you have up to a couple thousand frenchmen who are gone over to the battle, that means tens of thousands of people to surveil those individuals alone. >> reporter: the french prosecutor says security services are investigating who may have financed ayoub el khazzani because despite his claims of being homeless living in a park he seemed to have means. his train ticket was first class, costing 149 euros, $170 according to the prosecutor. despite having a return plane ticket for the trip to turkey he apparently never used it. according to french and german sources somehow obtaining a separate ticket to travel from southern turkey to istanbul to

10:16 pm
>> there's a wall there. we were at the end of the car. so there's nothing. there's the wall behind me. i didn't see anything coming. but i saw the tip of a gun, of, what do you call that, ak-47. >> yes. >> i saw that. and i knew it was serious. >> how close? >> i'm not sure. i would say. you see this bar right there? that's it. >> very close. >> yeah, not even two feet from me. from my head. then i got up. i mean i basically said what he told me to do. i got up and i went a few seats down and i sort of crouched down behind a seat. just went to the guy with the gun. i didn't see it because i was hidden but i heard him saying, i got the gun. >> this is your husband?
10:17 pm
>> yes, it was his voice. he said, i got the gun. then it was very fast. a few seconds i heard a shot. maybe one or two, i'm not sure. it was very loud. and then i saw my husband just, two seats that way, very close to me. >> fall to the ground. >> he fell to the ground. i was still behind the seat so i didn't see the shooter. my husband told me that after that he took his gun back but i didn't see it. i didn't see that part. >> so the gunnenman grabbed the gun away from your husband. >> yes. my husband thought he was going to shoot him again. a short break here on cnn. when we come back, hundreds of migrants camping out at a park in serbia. you'll hear how one family is hoping to reach western europe.

10:36 pm
one description or another. the various measures. first of all, they have reduced the reserve requirement of the banks that makes it easier for the banks to actually lend. they have given money to brokerages and instructed firms to buy their own shares and of course they ordered executives not to sell shares in the market. all of these were designed to slow down the market selling. unfortunately, as you can see by the numbers, it simply hasn't worked. on the broader economic front, china devalued its currency, the yuan. they said they were doing this to better reflect market forces. but if you look and see how the yuan has traded, this is where the -- existed against the dollar. it was the first devaluation and the second extending of the range. it's all led to a feeling that chinese authorities are making it up as they go along.

11:02 pm
shanghai at the moment? there it is. it is positive up around 2.6% not as much volatility as we saw yesterday. >> that is very positive considering it closed yesterday at 7.6%. so u.s. markets are looking to recover from their six-day losing streak. the dow jones industrial average spent most of tuesday in positive territory up more than 440 points at its peak but the rally fizzled late in the day with the dow closing down nearly 205 points. >> the european markets are hoping to extend their gains when they open next hour. you see on tuesday, the ftsu was up 3%. the xetra dax was up nearly 5% higher. and the zurich smi was up 3.5%.
11:03 pm
andrew stevens joins us live from hong kong. it will be interesting to see what happens on european markets once they open. but overall how have asian markets responded to china cutting its key interest rate after two days of turmoil. is all the positive movement due to that intervention from china? >> i think it is. it is helping things and helping sentiment getting away from those massive volatile swings we have seen. shanghai seems to be holding those gains, which is important. they are not big gains but they are gains. and that is what the central authorities want to see. they want to see positivity coming back into the markets. it is positive throughout asia. at this stage, though, can't say that this is over, that this is a sign that things are sort of getting restored back to normal.
11:04 pm
far to early to say that. but at the moment, certainly positive move, rosemary. >> and andrew, wall street bucked the upward trend tuesday. how is it likely to respond when markets open wednesday given china's intervention here? >> extraordinary what happened on wall street. before the open it was pointing to a 600 point gain helped partly by the fact that china came out with these announcements and it closed down 1.3%. gives you an idea of the state of mind of investors. fear is ruling the minds at the moment. but very, very difficult to tell, to be honest. it will help that china has stabilized at least today and asia is look better. europe may come back a bit given
11:05 pm
it had big gains yesterday. but it's not just china they are worried about. is it going to raise the interest rates? there is a lot of uncertainty still and that is causing the volatility. difficult to say what wall street will do by the end today. >> we'll wait for wall street to open and what happens on the european markets. an true stevens reporting live from hong kong. thanks to you. we turn to u.s. politics. we begin a press conference at a campaign stop in iowa that turned into a heat dead bait between presidential candidate trudonald trump and a tv journalist. >> it started when jorge ramos tried to ask a question about immigration policies. >> sit down. sit down. go ahead.

11:07 pm
absolutely. good to have you back. okay. >> so here's the -- empty promises. >> okay. >> cannot deport 11 million. you cannot deny citizenship to the children of this country. >> why do you say that? >> you cannot do that. >> a lot of people think -- excuse me -- a lot of people -- >> here's the -- full of empty promises. >> okay. >> you cannot deport 11 million. you cannot deny citizenship to the children of this country. you cannot build -- >> why do you say that? >> you cannot do that. >> a lot of people think -- no, no. excuse me. a lot of -- no, no. i build buildings that are -- can i tell you what is more complicated is building a building that is 95 stories tall.
11:08 pm

11:09 pm
candidate. one would think if he is doing this to me, a u.s. citizen and a journalist what can happen to others in this country who have not had the luck that i have had. >> one thing to keep in mind is trump's brash attitude with the media, it hasn't hurt his standing in the polls at all. that's is why he has the nickname of the teflon don. cnn political reporter sarah murray has more on that. >> reporter: the g.o.p. front runner battling with jeb bush calling him a mess over his defense of the term "anchor babies." trump saying asians are offended that jeb said that anchor babies applies to them. but on the trail today bush striking back. needling trump as a candidate full of fury but lacking in

substance. >> there is a lot of good talkers running for president and one in particular i'm thinking of. look, talking is good. it's important to be able to communicate. i got that. but i think it's more important to solve problems. >> reporter: the latest exchange a signal of how the battle is coming down the a war of words between the two top candidates. but bush wasn't trump's only target. last night he bashed president obama's plans to host a state dinner for the president of china say for he was in the white house -- >> i would not be throwing him a dinner i would give him a mcdonald's hamburger, we'll give him a state dinner and he has sucked all of our jobs -- >> he hasn't done it -- >> reporter: even refusing to rule out a trade war with the world's second largest economy. >> you have to do that and bring it back to normal. >> reporter: trump rounding out the takedowns by reuniting his

11:12 pm
side of donald trump. americans and republicans think their country is falling apart and in decline. they want someone who is equal to our fears. someone big and that's donald trump. so i think, you know, that's what you saw tonight. he's not taking any guff from any news media type like ramos. he is telling you what he's going to do. he's a political strongman. when countries are desperate, they turn to the political strongman. i don't think that's a good thing. >> i do think it's interesting many republican commentators try to differentiate between the supporters and the regular republican voters. do you think trump supporters are a silent majority? who is this wing of the republican party? >> i think it's a very
11:13 pm
pessimistic, anxious group, it's older, whiter, more male. and it's frustrated. it's not only frustrated at the governing elite. they think they are losing their country and the governing elite is not doing anything about it. if they don't act now, as trump said we may lose the country we love. it's not a majority in the republican party. this may be the summer of trump but we vote in the winter. >> alex castellanos. next hour you will hear more of my conversation with him. two nato service members have been killed in afghanistte after -- afghanistan. >> coalition service members returned fire, killing the attackers. afghan and nato officials say they are reviewing this incident.

welcome back, everyone. the world famous white sands of one of hawaii's most popular beaches are off limits right now. >> unusually heavy rainfall overwhelmed waikiki's sewer
11:45 pm
system. it caused raw sewage to flow from the city's manholes into the hawaiian capital and into the ocean. >> not nice at all. and life guards warned beach goers to stay out of the water. many braved the water but many said they were not taking chances. >> i was coming down to have a swim but it doesn't seem like paradise when you think there could be nasties floating in it. >> it's a bad day for our company. and of course we know what those nasties are, right? so beautifully put by an australian tourist. pedram javaheri joins us now. talk to us, people swimming in those sorts of waters are exposing themselves to all sorts of dangers. >> there's a saying for it, sewage happens. but -- rosemary likes it.
11:46 pm
>> i do. >> in 2006 this occurred and about 50 million gallons was spilled near the ocean shores. this has happened before but the rainfall that came down was astonishing. the single wettest august day for honolulu occurred sunday into monday. the amount of water equivalent to 4 billion gallons of water in six hours. it will cause problems left and right. we'll show you here. another way to think about this, 3 1/2 inches, 4 billion gallons of water is equivalent to the niagara falls that flows over the falls in a two hour period all of that spilling into areas on honolulu. and infections become a major issue. there was one fatality associated with this as well. it could be a serious scenario if people do not heed the proper
11:47 pm
precautions. the hawaiian islands are right there. we have several tropical features in recent days. they are going to hit you on the jet stream, the moisture from them. it will pick up the intensity of the weather pattern on the western side of the u.s. which brings in rainfall and as we get this pattern finally shifting for the first time in five month first the northwestern corner of the u.s. potential for 2 to 4 inches. get up to vancouver island 6 inches of rainfall in seven days. the fires are in eastern washington. 64 active large fires. but the rainfall definitely going to be beneficial. and we know the air quality issue is on the dangerous side. and the pattern shifts quickly. from the 80s down to the 70s. notice this happens. happens three times in the next seven dayance the rainfall comes
11:48 pm
with it as well. and the last time it rained four straight days in seattle was the first day of spring. it could happen from friday to monday. and we go back to the atlantic ocean we have storm erica in the works. the storm system as it moves over the island of turks and caicos and bahamas looks like a category 1 hurricane for southeastern florida. something worth noting as we are beginning to see activity in the tropical world. it was ten years ago today that hurricane katrina was named and in four days' time it made landfall in louisiana. >> a lot can change. >> a lot can change. now in higher education could be a literally description of college life in one journalism class in colorado. we'll explain that after this short break.

-- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com stocks in asia appear to have stabilized following days of heavy losses. >> german chancellor angela merkel heads to the scene of violent protests. sit down, you weren't called. sit down. >> donald trump gets a reporter tossed out of a campaign event. >> hello and welcome to viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm rosemary church. >> and i'm errol barnett. thanks for being with us. this is "cnn newsroom."
12:01 am
and we begin with the global financial markets after two days of heavy losses, stocks are closing higher for most part in asia. >> this is welcome news, a bit of a turn around after the chinese government cut interest rates and eased cash requirements for banks. you see the positive effect that is happening. most of the indices are closed. the hang seng still open at this hour and it is relatively flat. the s&p asx 200 and the tokyo nikkei all positive. the shanghai composite has been relatively flat as well. it's up .19% but just now losing that. but it's been a flat day. on tuesday in the u.s., the dow jones surged more than 400
12:02 am
points only to pull back, ending with a loss of about 200 points. >> now major financial markets in europe just opened moments ago. isa soares will join us live with a look at that momentarily. >> but let's start with anna coren who is watching asian markets in hong kong. what a difference a day makes when you look at the numbers it appears that china's intervention has made the difference. >> it depends who you speak to, rosemary and how this is interpreted considering the moves that the bank made to cut the reserve requirement ratio which is the money that the bank has to set aside these are not the significant gains that, perhaps, chinese authorities were hoping for. over the past two days, the shanghai composite dropped 15%. so, really, perhaps they would have been hoping for much more
12:03 am
than what we are seeing and right now as the shanghai composite closes it is down more than .5%. so really this is not particularly good news considering the moves they had taken. this has been interpreted as a rather lukewarm response by the markets. and perhaps, you know, not enough. to restore the confidence and stimulate the growth and stabilize the volatility which we have seen over the past few days. so really, it depends on who you speak to but there are a lot of people who would say the chinese government has not done enough. this is merely a temporary measure and it will need to do a lot more in the coming weeks and months to see real change. >> all right. we'll see whether china's intervention does help to stimulate the economy down the
12:04 am
track. let's go to isa soares in london. the german, italian and french stocks rebounded after a shaky start as did the ftse in london. why was that and can we expect the same today? >> there is a question here, errol of racing chasing tail spin, who is chasing who? pretty much went in their own direction. i think we had a very strong data yesterday out of europe that really helped to lift sentiment. we had data out of germany all very strong. that helped to boost european markets. let's see how the markets are faring. they are expecting to be a soggy start to be honest with you. it is soggy. numbers down quite substantially even though we saw those muted numbers out of asia.
12:05 am
the nikkei was okay and shanghai was flat but it's you would have expected more of a turnaround given the moves from china but it's going to the same point that anna was making there. you don't know how how much of what the chinese government has done, how much is just window dressing, to completely honest. the feeling is they've done something but that is not enough to persuade investors to go all in. we had numbers up to as much as 4% yesterday. so the celebration, that's gone out of the window for european investors, clearly concerned about growth in china and wanting china to do more. china's cut rates five times already but can it do more? it has the means to do more but it is willing to do enough to convince investors this is really important. and what is important as well to point out here is that this is very light trading. this is summer, many people on holiday. there is an aspect of that. and another aspect is herd
12:06 am
mentality, as you know. a lot of the trades are done by computers. so it really is hard to figure out who exactly they're being led by. just being led by asia, being led by the u.s. there is an element of herd mentality in this. and it's hard to find out how traders are feeling. when we come to september we have a better sense of the mood for traders. but asia is number one concern for many traders i have been speaking to, errol. >> it's a mixed picture when we look at financial markets. we appreciate you walking us through it. anna coren and isa soares in london. thanks to you both. republican presidential candidate donald trump is involved in a war of words with a tv journalist. >> this time he had a fiery clash with univision journalist jorge ramos. ramos tried to ask a question
12:07 am
about the candidate's immigration policies. >> you weren't called. sit down. sit down. sit down. go ahead. no you don't. you haven't been called. go back to univision. go ahead. >> and you see there, trump had security escort ramos out of the event. he was later allowed to return, though. ramos has been a vocal critic of trump's comments on immigration. he explained why he pressed the front runner on this issue. >> translator: what happened is that trump trdonald trump had nd to give us a interview. there are so many topics we want know of, why he wants to deport 11 million immigrants and why he wants to build a wall on the
12:08 am
border between mexico and the u.s. >> alex castellanos joins us to talk about this. and like him or not, donald trump is proving himself to be a completely different kind of campaigning politician. he may be great tv but is he really good for the republican party? he is speaking off the cuff and insulting a female conservative news anchor. is that good for what conservatives want to accomplish? >> no. it's good for what donald trump may want to accomplish. but he is not really a republican. he is probably not a democrat. he is all about more power for trudonald trump. he is a little bit like fire. he can cook your food or burn your house down with everyone in it. just give him the power to fix everything and it's going to be just great. >> that makes the stakes pretty high then, right? >> that's right.
12:09 am
>> there was one incident where he temporarily removed jorge ramos before letting him back in and getting into a testy exchange with him. the republicans will need latino and hispanic support. how do you think this incident and his plans are going to play in the long term with that demo? >> if trump is the republican nominee it won't play well with that demo. generally people you want to deport don't want to vote for you. but if trump is not the nominee it won't have that much of an impact on the republican party. donald trump is a unique think. he is so different than your standard politician, republican or democrat if he does not get the nomination he will take trumpism with him. trumpism is not transferrable to any other human being on this
12:10 am
planet. whoever gets the nomination will be an anti-trump and it will be a better day for the republican party. >> but today he is number one and has been for weeks in the polls when it comes to republican voters and his anti-immigrant rhetoric has only served to propel him. what does that say about the state of the republican party? >> i'm not sure it's anti-immigrant rhetoric. but the republican that republicans are turning to donald trump is his strength which is also the scary side of trump is his craving for power. americans and republicans think their country is falling apart and we are in decline. they want someone who is equal to our fears, someone big and that's donald trump. so i think you know, that's what you saw tonight. he's not taking any guff from any news media type like ramos. he is telling you what he's going to do. he's a political strongman.
12:11 am
and when countries are desperate, they turn to the political strongman. i don't think that's a good thing. >> we will see how this all shapes up. and we shall note alex has an opinion piece. it's an interesting read. thank you for joining us from d.c. >> good to be with you. trump is fanning the embers of his feud with megyn kelly. their first encounter was earlier this month. >> and this week trump retweeted comments to his followers who called kelly a bimbo and fox news is calling for an apology. donald trump's surprise and unprovoked attack last night is unacceptable and disturbing. this is what fox news chairman said on tuesday. he added that donald trump rarely apologizes but to this
12:12 am
case he should. but trump, as you might expect, is not backing down. >> it's a very small element in my life, megyn kelly. i would not apologize. she should probably apologize to me. but i just don't care. >> donald trump says he's not afraid of u.s. vice president joe biden. he says it would be fun to run against him. >> this comes as more signs point to a possible 2016 run for biden. michelle kosinski has more. >> reporter: back at work after a few weeks of secret meetings and discussions about whether to jump into the presidential race, joe biden flew to cleveland for the funeral of louis stokes, the fourth funeral in three months including that of his son, beau, who urged his father to run for president and that question is all the buzz in politics.
12:13 am
>> do you think that vice president biden is getting to the race? >> reporter: his opponents welcome him mostly. clinton's campaign says they are not worried about it. it's her e-mail controversy that is contributing to the stirring of a support for a biden run. and those close to him are telling cnn that is looking more likely than not. the president is giving him a green light. he is planning more with donors, fundraisers, strategists. >> there is probably no one in american politics today who has a better understanding of exactly what is required to mount a successful national presidential campaign. >> reporter: no question, he has plenty of supporters, fundraising ability and decades of experience. but could he beat clinton is the question that worries democrats. iowa polling shows her with 54%
12:14 am
of democratic support. sanders 20% and biden, 11%. >> not just blurting [ bleep ] out. >> with a different type of straight talk to rival trump's sometimes really seems to make headlines for impromptu shoulder massages, semi received kisses. and -- >> you cannot go to a 7-eleven or dunkin' donuts without an indian accent. >> i'm the vice president of the student body here. >> [ bleep ] the vice president then? >> just too many to choose from to include here. but the democrats are treating this possible run, possible challenge to hillary as, yes -- >> [ bleep ]. >> michelle kosinski, cnn, the
12:15 am
white house. we'll take a short break here. but still to come, europe's migrant crisis is causing tensions in germany. see how the country's leader is addressing a demonstration that turned violent. we are learning more about a desperate struggle last week in which passengers overwhelmed a heavily armed gunman on a high-speed train. stay with us. bill's got a very tough 13lie here...... looks like we have some sort of sea monster in the water hazard here. i believe that's a "kraken", bruce. it looks like he's going to go with a nine iron. that may not be enough club... well he's definitely going to lose a stroke on this hole. if you're a golf commentator, you whisper. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. this golf course is electric...
12:16 am
12:17 am
12:18 am
12:19 am
we want to address europe's migrant crisis now. angela merkel will visit a town where anti-refugee protests turned violent over the weekend. clashes between protesters and police left 31 officers injured. >> cnn's ian lee is following developments from london and joins us live. how is angela merkel likely to deal with the violent reaction to these asylum seekers in her country. >> we have seen angela merkel
12:20 am
come out strong against this violence, this wave. she is going to where the violence took place in eastern germany. we are also seeing the german government say that they're going to respond to this xenophobic violence and it could lead to prison time. the german government says they have no room for this in germany. that this is a country that is going to take four times the number of asylum seekers by the end of this year as they did last year. that is 800,000 people and germany says they have the room for this but there is growing discontent with people in eastern germany and other parts where you have these shelters that are overflowing army piano
12:21 am
attack the shelters. there have been a number of arson attacks and angela merkel addressed these attacks and perpetrators directly. take a listen. >> translator: there was an aggressive xenophobic mood that is in no way acceptable. it's repulsive to see how they are voicing they've hatred but just as disgraceful to see how german citizens and children are supporting this by marching along with them. >> and angela merkel has been criticized for being relatively silent previously but now we are hearing a very firm chancellor there. >> you are talking about 800,000 asylum seekers to be assimilated into german society. there is a resistance now. what is likely going the happen to these asylum seekers? >> we are seeing resistance in
12:22 am
the eastern part of germany where there is a lot of unemployment and fewer opportunities. and ironically there have been people in western germany that have said the people in the east were asylum seekers and refugees when the berlin wall fell down and they should accept these people but this is a large number. 800,000. that's the largest in europe. that's the largest that europe has received. so that is going to be the question, what to do with this many but there are shelters for these people to go to. germany says they will devote the resources to make sure they are assimilated and they do have a house and a place to stay. but it is -- it is a growing concern for a number of people in germany. >> indeed. many thanks to our ian lee reporting from london on the situation in eastern germany. appreciate it. many of those fleeing violence in their own countries are passing through the serbian
12:23 am
capital, belgrade. >> it's a city that knows war all too well. arwa damon has been to a park there to hear some of their stories. >> reporter: he strums an old kurdish song. his wife sits with their 3-month-old in a park in belgrade. it was his voice that she first fell in love with. we wanted to settle in turkey. i was working weddings there. but tensions have started to rise and if they kick anyone out, it will be us. the sorrowful lyrics about feeling like a foreigner, it's a sentiment that echoes with all here. we met with a group of friends from iraq who did not want to appear on camera. one is a 30-year-old teacher. his students cried when he told them he decided to leave.
12:24 am
two years ago militias bombed his wedding and killed his 14-year-old brother. another of his friends is a computer engineer and another is a journalist from the isis stronghold of mosul. all say the most precious thing they have is iraq and because of everything they have been through they feel like they are strangers in their own land. for the refugees, the trek is a pendulum of emotions. from elation at the small moments of respite -- to sheer despair. macedonia after shutting its border for four days finally started facilitating transit of refugees. this is a population who remembers war and knows too well that in an instant, all can be lost. at the belgrade park there are medical stations, most of what
12:25 am
they are treating are foot injuries for the adults, cough and colds among the children due to the fluctuating weather and rain with no shelter. from here they hope to country to western europe. it's not a journey any wanted to take. two years ago, while still in his homeland, he wrote this song. ♪ don't cry, my mother, he sings, syria is for my children. foreshadowing the impossible choice his family had to make. arwa damon, cnn, belgrade. a show of russian might in the skies. what mols co has for sale and who is buying coming up. hear the chilling first-hand account from a woman whose
12:26 am
husband was slashed on a train in an alleged terror attack.
12:27 am
12:28 am
12:29 am
is it your last half hour of the day with us as you watch "cnn newsroom." i'm errol barnett. >> i'm rosemary church. after two days after losses, stocks in asia, well, look at that that's a mixed picture. if we look at shanghai, it finished down 1 1/4%. and the nikkei up 3.2%. the hang seng down about a percentage point there. the markets in europe opened a half hour ago all in negative territory heading towards and
12:30 am
beyond the 2% mark. so we'll keep an eye on that and see the moves there. angela merkel will visit a town today where anti-refugee protests turned violent over the weekend. demonstrators were angry about the arrival of 250 asylum seekers. a news conference for u.s. republican presidential front runner donald trump turned into a debate with jorge ramos. he has been critical of trump's comments own immigration. security escorted ramos out but he was allowed to return and ask his question. one of the americans aboard the paris-bound train last week is back home in the united states. anthony sadler, you'll see him in the gray sweatshirt, landed in sacramento california a short while ago.
12:31 am
>> he just returned from europe where he and two other americans and a british citizen received france's highest honor. >> francois hollande will award the legion of honor to mark moogalian for his bravery. he is hospitalized in france recovering for injuries he received while trying to sub due the suspect. >> his wife was on the train with him during that incident and she gave cnn an exclusive account of how the event unfolded. >> translator: get out and it's serious. i looked at his face and he was not kidding. he looked very intense. and i was sitting there. he was facing the door. >> your back. >> my back. >> to the gunman? >> well there, is a wall. there we are at the end of the
12:32 am
car. so there is nothing. i mean there, is the wall behind me. i didn't see anything coming. but i saw the tip of a gun, of a -- how do you call that, a kalashnikov? i think you called it ak-47. >> yes. >> i saw that and knew it was serious. >> how close? >> i'm not sure. i would say -- you see this bar right there? that's it. >> a few feet. very close? >> yeah, not even two feet from me, from my head. then i got up. i basically said what he told me to do. i got up and went just a few seats down and sort of crouched down behind a seat and he just went to the guy with the gun. i didn't see it because i was hidden but i heard him say "i got the gun." >> this was your husband?
12:33 am
>> yes, it was his voice. he said "i got the gun." and it was very fast. a few seconds later i hear a shot, one, maybe two, it was loud. and then i saw my husband like two seats that way. i mean, very close to me. >> fell to the ground? >> he fell to the ground. i was still behind the seat. so i didn't see the shooter. my husband told me after that, that he actually took his gun back. >> the gunman grabs the gun away from your husband at this point? >> yes. and my husband thought he was going to shoot him again. >> such a frightening recollection of events there. meantime we are learning more about the suspect on the train, ayoub el khazzani faces multicharges. a prosecutor says there is clear evidence of terrorist attempt.
12:34 am
jim bitterman joins us to discuss what we know. the suspect expects officials to believe he was only looking to steal money, nothing terror related as he carried 270 rounds of am mission. th -- ammunition. that is hard to believe. >> reporter: absolutely. i don't think the prosecutors are believing it. the fact is that apparently, from what we hear from terrorism experts, people involved in these kind of attacks over the last few years always claimed it is not terrorism related. because in france, anyway, the terrorism laws are much stricter. but the prosecutor yesterday made it clear they have plenty of evidence to link this to terrorism including something they found on his cell phone. here's more from the prosecutor. >> translator: the internet through his phone.
12:35 am
show us that among others, ayoub el khazzani was looking at an audio file on youtube in which he was calling his followers to combat. >> the prosecutor believes that plus the fact he was connected with a radical islamic group down in spain where he had lived for some time plus the weapons plus the money, all these things, which they're still investigating to some extent, all of these things link him to a terrorist act. his indictment is under charges linked to terrorism. >> and considering that it appears that the suspect ayoub el khazzani spent time in a number of european countries before this attack will the french officials be the only ones to bring charges? it would seem that information from other nations would bolster their case. >> because the act did occur on
12:36 am
french territory that's where the charges will be brought. there could be other related charges that fall out of this. in belgium they have looked into his sister's apartment where he stayed. there has been an investigation in spain. there may be some things there. but as far as the act on the train is concerned that is only going to be france involved. but what it does do is put the fear of god into people about what can happen within the territories, the 25 countries of europe that virtually have no borders any more. you can freely transit between countries without being detected. we will see a meeting about the interior ministers about what they can do to patrol the suspects who are coming on to the radar all over europe and stop them from acting. >> improvements need to be made.
12:37 am
jim bitterman reporting live for us from paris this morning. russia's largest air show is underway outside of moscow and serving a dual purpose. there have been diplomatic talks between vladimir putin and the king of jordan and the crown prince of abu dhabi on the conflict in syria and it's a marketplace for russian weaponry. matthew chance joins us from moscow with that. and the big message is clear, isn't it? russia is no longer isolated with significant deals in the making. who has already signed on the dotted line? >> those deals are still being brokered now. this air show and arms fair outside of moscow takes place until the end of the week. and throughout that period there will be major deals being done but it's as you referred to in
12:38 am
that introduction it's not just about weapons but about diplomacy as well. russia is playing a more active role in diplomacy, the crown prince of abu dhabi and king of jordan standing side by side with vladimir putin as he opened the air show. as he opened the show with a potential to sell weapons. it's about spdiplomacy but also about selling weapons as well. >> reporter: the awesome spectacle of russian air power tearing through skies. this is the kremlin's cutting-edge weaponry on display and on sale. it's most high-profile arms fair. war planes like these are among russia's most lucrative exports and interest seems high. delegates from more than 20
12:39 am
