who have been involved in a murder of one of their own and something we continue to follow. as we get more information, of course, we will bring it to you. >> at least seven school districts in the area have cancelled classes today because of this manhunt. new escalation this morning between the feud between donald trump and jeb bush. a new bush web video sales trump as a late conservatism and trump responds in kind slamming jeb bush as a dynasty candidate, not unlike hillary clinton. cnn political reporter sara murray hat latest for us from washington. >> reporter: good morning, christine and john. the attacks are really heat up now between donald trump and jeb bush. jeb bush really kicking it off yesterday when he released a video using donald trump's own words to paint the front-runner as a liberal. >> do you like representing the united states in a deal with iran, with this regime?

1:05 am
for reagan, a very big group of people and a very big block. i think i will have a lot of democrats voting for me, far more than any republican for the last long period of time. i will say this and i will say this, you know, very strongly. the -- the republican conservatives were not energized in the last election. had they opinion energized and had they voted, you would have seen victory for mitt romney. >> reporter: the big question now where do these attacks go next? right now, we are seeing sort of a exchange on twitter and youtube and instagram. not a lot of money behind these ads. the big question is whether we will see jeb bush's super pac which has a hundred million dollars weigh in on this fight and actually running ads against donald trump. for now, the answer to that looks like it's no, but stay tuned. back to you, john and christine. a change in debate rules that will most likely benefit
1:06 am
carly fiorina. that debate comes up september 16th here on cnn. cnn announced any candidate who polls in the top ten between the first debates on august 10th and september 6th, the cutoff, they will be included in on the 16th, in addition to any candidate qualified by the previous criteria, top ten place between july 16th and september 10th. what all this basically means is if you did well in the first debate and your poll numbers increase, you could very likely be included in the second debate and this, of course, means that carly fiorina, who did very well, people thought, in the happy hour debate, she will almost definitely be on the main stage. she praised this decision when she heard about it on megyn meghan mccain's radio show. >> that is the truth. you know, there were so many polls prior to august 6th and
1:07 am
there have been very few since august 6th. if you just average polls, you come up with an answer that doesn't reflect current reality. you know what? good for cnn and i am so appreciative for all of the support and the pressure that our grassroots supporters put on cnn because i'm quite sure is made a difference. president obama preparing for his final day in alaska and he visits with fisherman this afternoon and takes in a cultural performance at a local middle school before coming back to washington. a boat trip yesterday he took that had him sounding the alarm about global warming and a boat trip that brought him face-to-face with a rapidly melting glacier. we get more from jim acosta in anchorage. >> reporter: john and christine, we witnessed what will likely go down as one of the lasting images of the obama presidency. they were on a boat tour taking a look at the glaciers that are melting rapidly in this state. we also saw some of the stunning wildlife that inhabit this
1:08 am
majestic corner of the world. mr. obama spoke again on the issue of global warming, urging countries across the globe to change course before it's too late. here is more of what the president had to say. >> this is one of the most studied glaciers because it's so easley accessible. what it is longer winter and longer and hotter summers is how rapidly the glacier is receding. you know, it sends a message about the urgency that we are going to need to have when it comes to dealing with this because, obviously, when the glaciers erode, that is also a sign of the amount of water that is being introduced into the oceans, rising sea levels, and the warming generally is having an impact on the foreign fada of this national park. >> reporter: president obama also hiked up to a melting
1:09 am
glacier. it's called exit glacier for a reason as it's melted a thousand feet the last ten years. he also taped that special with survival bear grills and no word whether they got up and close and personal with any wildlife. later today, the president heads to the arctic and he will hear from fishermen who are seeing their livelihoods threatened and talk to nearby communities who are relocating because of the rapid melting in the arctic. >> thanks, jim. secretary of state john kerry will deliver a major speech in philadelphia today in support of the iran nuclear deal, this is part of the obama administration's full-court press to push the agreement through congress and, right now, the prospects look pretty good. democratic senators, two came out in support of the deal. the president needs just one more vote. the u.s. launched a secret

the city of baltimore on edge this morning. police bracing for potential unrest as the freddie gray case enters the pretrial stage. six baltimore officers are charged in connection with the death of freddie gray who suffered fatal injuries while in police custody. several ckey issues expected to be raised today. >> reporter: john and christine, today's pretrial hearing is extremely important for these six police officer defendants. they are asking first of all, for the judge to dismiss all of
1:16 am
the charges. they are also asking that the state attorney's office be recused. and a special proper be brought in, and they are also asking for defendants to be severed or be tried together, another big issue today. now because of that, the baltimore police department wants to be sure that they have their staffing so they have told the officers they cannot take leave today. so all officers have to be in place within the department, they cannot be off at all. and we have spoken to some businesses in the area that have alerted their employees to be on the lookout for traffic disruptions because community activists are actually asking for demonstrations because of all of this because of the importance of this hearing, so we really don't know what is going to happen as the day goes on today. we believe, though, there will be some protests and there will be some demonstrations. one of the big issues here, the defense is asking that the judge dismiss all of the charges, based on timing. they say that when the police
1:17 am
department finished their investigation on may 1st, that they took it to the commissioner of courts with their statement asking for conceivably charges. 15 minutes later was the first arrest. so they say that the prosecutors office just was too quick on all of this and, therefore, the charges should be dismissed. they say that the state attorney has so many conflicts of interest in this case that the entire state attorney's office should be recused. special prosecutor brought in and, lastly, the question of whether six defendants should be tried together or separately. those arguments may take the longest of all today and we don't know if the judge is going to rule from the bench or if the judge will take this under advisement and those rulings will come at a later date. but all critical issues and, john and christine, next week, change of venue on the table. another pretrial hearing, another critical issue. back to you.

police presence throughout all of this. it's really hard, christine, for the parents who try to save their children from the war zones that are in syria and iraq and also afghanistan. have you these different groups of migrants and refuges who all kind of collect together. now it seems like the afghans also wanting to bring attention to their plight because they also are living in a war zone. but as i was saying, in all of this, christine, it's been so hard for the parents, because they try to save their children from almost certain death back that nhair ho in their home lands and drag them on this treacherous journey across the sea and the ocean and now they are left to live in the streets here. people demonstrating. similar to the one now ongoing behind us. happening throughout the entire day because all these people
1:26 am
just want someone in power to hear them and to empathize with them for a little bit. the eu laws and regulations that govern asylum applications, they are old and outdated and they most certainly cannot be applied to a crisis of this proportion. at this stage, all these people want is to be able to get out of hungary, a country that is fairly hostile toward the migrants and refuges and get somewhere where they can begin to build a life with just a little bit of dignity. >> arwa damon, thank you for that. trying in many cases to get to germany why the german chancellor has said get here and we will help you. frederik pleitgen was reporting yesterday from munich, pretty organized once they get to munich and off the trains and buses in germany, the german government is saying we want to help you from syria and iraq in particular but until you get there, very difficult going. happening right now, a huge manhunt to find three suspected
