tv   State of the Union With Jake Tapper  CNN  September 6, 2015 6:00am-7:01am PDT

6:00 am
who in the past used dericive labels like club for dopes. don't expect lasting peace here. but the old proverb the enemy of my enemy is my friend. >> "state of the union" with jake tapper, starts right now. >> trump on top. >> the billion nair widens his lead. even after he spars with jeb bush and stumbled on foreign policy question. will anything slow him down? plus, sarah palin. what she said president obama missed on his historic trip to alaska. >> how about while he was up here he carried a big stick instead of a selfie stick.
6:01 am
>> and the position she'd like to hold in the trump administration and breaking news with democrats bitterly split over obama's iran plan, his party's chair woman is here live to reveal her vote plus the best political team on television will be here with insights from the campaign trail. >> hello i'm jake tapper in washington, d.c. where the state of the union is gunning for a fight. this week, the so-called 11th commandment continued to go by the wayside as the republican pact let loose with attacks on their front-runner, donald j. trump. first up, jeb bush who hit back after trump criticized him for speaking spanish on the trail. >> mr. trump doesn't believe in those values. he doesn't believe in tolerance or the things that create greatness in this country.
6:02 am
>> then came senator marco rubio, called a bunch of detailed foreign policy questions, gotchas. >> i think, if you don't remember the answer of those questions you can't serve as commander in chief. and senator rand paul warning republicans of dire consequences if they vote to make trump their nominee. >> i do think donald trump will be a disaster for the country and for our paerp party. i think we'd sever the worst defeat since 1964. >> but, so far none of this seems to be able to stop trump whoupped to his highest poll numbers yet this week. he's at 30 personally in a monmouth university poll with ben carson in second place. we decided we'd ask someone who knows a little about outsider campaigns to join us for insights as to what is happening inside the republican race and sarah palin is here, former alaska governor, republican vice presidential nominee in 2008 and
6:03 am
author of the upcoming boat "sweet freedom: a devotional." thanks for joining us. >> thank you so much. i wish you were here to conduct the interview. we would be speaking in this beautiful vista together. thanks for letting me be on. >> let's talk about alaska. one of the reasons we wanted to talk you to. president obama visited your home state of alaska for a rather significant presidential visit. he talked about a lot of things but started with officially changing the name of the tallest peak in north america, changing it back from mt. mckinley to denali. the move was praised by alaska's governor. criticized by donald trump. who promise to change the name back. you referred to the mountain as denali an your secret service code name aus pointed out. where do you come on the change? >> i have one niece named mckinley, another named denali. i think that's indicative of the
6:04 am
split of alaskans, whether it should be referred to as mckinley or denali. the name of the park was changed to denali some years ago. i thought that's good enough. i thought we could keep mckinley as the highest peak on the north american continent, we could keep that name mckinley. i think the criticism is the fact obama would spend the time, the effort, the political capital, even, on such a thing when, you know, the middle east is a tinderbox, our economy still sucks. so many things are going wrong right thousand that are under his purview, and yet he would make it a big darn deal to come up here and rename the mountain. that's a lot of the criticism. >> as you wrote about. the emphasis of this trip is highlight climate change affecting alaska and alaskans more directly than most other states. as you know better than i, winter temperatures in alaska
6:05 am
have warm ed. the village may vanish as the river rises. listen what the president had to say. >> any so-called leader who does not take this issue seriously or treats it like a joke is not fit to lead. do you take climate changes seriously? >> i take changes in the weather, cyclical changes the globe has undergone since the beginning of of time, i take it seriously, but not going blame these changes on the weather on man's footprint. obama was up here looking at the glaciers and pointing out a glacier receding. there are other glaciers growing up here. he didn't highlight that but used glaciers as an example. one of the marker, though, that they use to measure the glacier that he was talking about, they started measuring, per this
6:06 am
marker, back in the early 1800s. and then they started showing from there how it schrung man's footprint was not near that glacier in the early 1800s when it started melting. it was before the industrial revolution. these blames on man's activity. some of that i know is bogus. >> i want to point out that the vast majority of climate change scientists disagree with your assessment. i do want to move on to these other guys. you wrote about them on your post. the is intercepted russian bombers off the coast of alaska. you note there are five chinese warships off the coast of alaska, in the bering sea. you say this is because china and russia are no longer respectful or intimidated by the united states. what do you think president obama should have done differently than what we are seeing done by russia and china? >> let's take his recent trip
6:07 am
which was pretty much a tourism jaunt, really. how about while he was up here, he, as a president, carried a big stick, instead of a selfie stick. he could start publicly berating these countries that are sticking it to us with the messages that they are sending. putin right now, he's flagging undersea, our resources, claiming them as his own. what is america doing about it? we don't even have a seat at the table under the law of the sea treaty. we are not even participating in fighting back. putting america first and say no, these are rich resources along our coast. no, russia, hey, you lost out, man, you sold the territory of alaska for 2 cents an acre, way back when. you don't get itting ba. but instead, putin is exerting power and china is exerting power and it all has to do with natural resources, too, with energy. they need those, of course, to prosper and to grow their
6:08 am
empires. america is sitting back. >> let's turn to politics. donal trump made a lot of head lights when he mistake d mistakn them for the kurds. he said if you don't know the answer to these questions, you are not fit to be commander in chief. trump said it amounted to a game of "cat cha." what do you think? >> i think i would rather have a president who is tough and puts america first than win a game of trivial pursuit. i don't know if other candidates were posed the same question, i don't know if they have the answers. i don't think the public gives a flying flip if somebody knows who, today, is a specific leader of a specific region. because that will change, of course, when the next president
6:09 am
comes into power, based on the volatility of politics in these other areas. i don't think the public is concerned about that. it's kind of subjective, too. whether a candidate is worthy to be given attention, and respect and be taken seriously if they don't know the leader of some -- religion, even a country. how about other candidates who may not know the price of a barrel of oil today, or how much oil it is that we are importing from foreign nations. unfriendly foreign nations and we have a ban on exporting our own oil and prohibitions and bans on drilling for our own oil. details maybe involved in that that a candidate doesn't know. hey, i'd be subjective and say, if you don't know that, you're not worthy of being taken seriously mr. candidate. >> donald trump said jeb bush should speak english and not spanish when campaigning in the
6:10 am
u.s. jeb bush's response was trump doesn't value tolerance. what do you make of that debate? i don't know if choosing to speak english or spanish, what that would have to do with somebody opposing it is tolerance or not. it's a benefit of jeb bush to be able to be so fluent in spanish, because we have a large and wonderful hispanic population that is helping to build america. that's kind of -- that's a great relationship and connection that he has with them, through his wife and through his family connections. on the other hand, you know, i think we can send a message and say, you want to be in america? you better be here legally, or you're out of here. "b," when you're here, let's speak american. let's speak english. that's a unifying aspect of a
6:11 am
nation of a language understood by all. i took spanish in high school. i took french in high school. shouldn't have taken them both because i got them all mixed up by the time i was graduating. a benefit of mr. bush, i think is one of the issues, it goes right over the public ace head, legitimately so, they are on to the next issues very important for the candidates to be debating. >> as you noted in your response it's important for the republican party to expand and reach out to hispanics, to latinos in a speech that some fewed as almost an audition of the vice president south carolina governor who you were an early supporter said the republican party often appears cold and unwelcoming to minorities. she said it's shameful and has to change. do you agree? >> no. because i can't think of any republican that i know who would
6:12 am
have that in their heart. i think republicans and independents, that's the party of tolerance. it certainly doesn't matter the color of your spin and some of the other things that are bantered around of being the barometer of whether someone is welcome in the party or not. >> let's talk about an issue close to your heart. ohio lawmakers are going to bring up solution that would ban women to terminate a presidency based on down's syndrome. governor kosich has not made a decision yet. do you want him to? >> yes, i do want hip to. is it okay for a mom to snuff out a baby based on one extra
6:13 am
chromosome? trig, has he so often does, taps me on the shoulder, whispers something and share, i wish more people could meet kids like trig and so many others who have that extra chromosome. they are amazing, wonderful kids that teach us more than we are able to teach them. they keep us ground pd and keeps things in perspective. i don't think because a child has one extra chromosome they should enough that life out. when i was pregnant, very early on in 12 weeks, got the diagnosis that trig would be born with down's syndrome. i know what moms go through when they are givinging at the time, to be honest with you, kind of devastating news. it makes your world stop spinning there a bit. there was fear of the unknown, certainly fear in my heart about how in the world are we going to be able to handle the challenges up ahead. not necessarily thinking of the
6:14 am
beauty that could come from a child being different. being unique. and as the months went by, though, and as i prayed about it, god, please change my heart. and my eyes. so i can see the beauty in all of this. so that i'll be ready to be a good mom to this child. and he answered my prayers. awesome. trig is so wonderful. but i do know what moms go through. and, jake, i think the reason that 85%, in some area, 90% of babies who have down's syndrome are aborted, is that fear of the unknown and because culture has told these women, and, again, i was there, has told these women, you're not capable of being able to handle and nurture and love and raise a child with special needs and it's just so much easier and convenient for you to just end it, pretend like it never happened, get rid of the child. get rid of the baby and get on
6:15 am
with the convenient life of your own. so, with cultures kind of overall mind set of life being able to be just thrown away, i know why that stat is what it is, it's so high. it's tragic. and, heck, whatever i can do to help parents, though, who are facing such a challenge at the beginning, especially to let them know you can do it and it's beautiful, i wouldn't change anything about trig. i wouldn't change anything about how this has so solidified our family support for the sanctity of life. for tolerance. for accepting people who are a little bit different. >> hillary clinton might soon find herself in a debate with joe biden. you've been there. you've gone toe-to-toe with him. i know you're not rooting for hillary clinton, but what advice would you offer anyone going toe-to-toe with joe biden in the debate? >> joe biden, he's such a character. nobody has to go in there being
6:16 am
nervous, just kind of gauge his personality that, you know, i don't know. it's not that he doesn't take things seriously. but just kind of comes across as being pretty, you know, pretty down to earth. pretty relaxed, so that opponent can do the same. and at the same time, stick it to them, if you want to win that debate. start talking about what your accomplishments are. start talking about what urine tensions are for this country. in that respect, hillary clinton wouldn't do very well against joe biden. >> donald trump says he would love to have someone of your strength in his administration. when you take a look at the cabinet. is there a particular area that would line unbetter with your strengths, position you want to serve in? >> that's a great question. i think about the department of energy. energy is my baby. minerals, oil, gas, those things god dumbed on this part of the earth for us to use instead of
6:17 am
relying on unfriendly nations to import their resources? i think a lot about department of energy, and if i were head of that. i'd get rid of it. and i'd let the states start having more control over the lands that are within their boundary, and the people who are affected by the developments within their space. so, you know, if i were in charge of that, it would be a short-term job. it would be really great to have someone who knows energy, and is pro responsible development to be in charge. >> all right. secretary sarah palin, if donald trump is watching or any others. thank you for joining us. appreciate it. coming up, top democrat, debbie becauserman schultz is here live. how will she vote on the iran deal? she'll reveal it after the break.

[ tapping, cash register dings ] there you go. [ buzzing ] bundle bee coming! it was worth it! saving you a bundle when you bundle -- now, that's progressive. what do a nasca comedian... and a professional golfer have in common? we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® has also been proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game. not this time. not with xarelto®. i'll have another arnold palmer.
6:20 am
make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®.

6:22 am
welcome back, congress comes back this week to debate president obama's hotly contested deal attempted to tamp down iran's nuclear many abigs. the white house appears to have enough votes to avoid it getting completely derailed by congress. but must sting to have so many inside the president's party vowing to vote against the deal among the many, many conflicted democrats. democratic national committee chair debbie wasserman schultz. she joins me now to announce her vote. i know you spoke to the president, the skies president. did you give them good news, bad in yous? how will you vote? >> i've gone through a gut-wrenching, thought provoking process where i wrapped up that process by spending the last few weeks talking with my constituents and my number one goal in making this decision was to reach the conclusion, based on what i thought would be most likely to prevent iran from achieving their nuclear weapons
6:23 am
goals and in weighing everything, all of the information i've had in front of me, i concluded that the best thing to do is to vote in support of the iran deal and make sure that we can put iran years away from being a threshold nuclear state and ensure that we can more closely concentrate on their terrorist activity. so i'll be casting my vote to support the deal and if necessary sustain the presidency, too. >> what were some of the specifics about the deal that made this such a difficult decision for you. what parts of the deal do you wish were stronger? >> there are a number of things that had really given me angst and pause and that still do. i worry about the vigilance over the life of the deal. not the united states vigilance, but, you know, with the iaea's enforcement with the world that has been a party to this, that complacency can set in. i worry that additional
6:24 am
resources, no matter how little, that iran would get access to, that they could divert the terrorist activity would cause harm to jews and others around the world. i worry we have to make sure that the monitoring is really as gap free as possible. but, with all of that, in looking at those concerns, and even still having them, it was imperative to me to make a decision, afrmths, based on, is there a better alternative. in thoroughly using our banking system to wrestle our allies and iran back to the negotiating table for a so-called better deal. no one presented me with any evidence that-to-show me that was possible and in talking to our allies, ambassadors, in talking to nuclear experts and
6:25 am
intelligence officials in top secret briefing, in talking to secretary lue, it was very clear that global economic chaos would be caused if you would even attempt that, that if we walked away from the deal, no matter what, iran gets access to additional resources and if we walk away from the deal, what results, they have additional resources. they have the ability to ramp up and move towards nuclear. and we have none of the monitoring or inspections and the deal would provide that? >> it would say the most intrusive inspections that we've imposed would be agreed to. >> the associated press revealed they had seen a document that suggest that iran would get to self-inspect. >> right. >> and i had -- that story came out the day before i had an
6:26 am
entire morning's top-secret briefings in the situation room. >> you went to the situation room? >> i did. i was in the situation room 20 times over the last few years from the beginning of the discussions of the preliminary agreement all of the way to two fridays ago when that story came out. i brought that story into the situation room with some intelligence officials that i can't reveal who they are. about w that story in front of them. if this is true, i want you to clearly understand that. you need to address this concern. i was given probably the most thorough review almost any member had access to as to what the actual process is for iran to reveal dimensions. i can say in no uncertain terms without revealing the details that they cannot self-inspect. >> they can't? >> cannot. absolutely cannot. and, in fact, the head of the iaea came out immediately and they hardly ever comment, the
6:27 am
head of the iaea said that's not the case. it's excruciating process that they have to go through. that was incredibly important. >> we only have a minute left. i want to address something that's very clear to you, i know. in that there are a lot of constituents of yours. there are a lot of jews who say you sole out israel. what are you going say to them? >> i'm the first jewish woman to represent florida in congress. i'm a jewish mother. i wrote in one of my home town papers that talks about my jewish heart and how important this was to me that as a jewish mother, that we have a concept of the door of the door. from generation to generation. there's nothing more important as a jew to ensure israel's existence is there throughout our generations. i'm confident the process i've
6:28 am
gone through to reach this decision is one to ensure israel will be there there forever. it's the homeland of my people. i believe in protecting america's national security interests and theres no way we would be able to ensure that better, than approving this deal and ensure iran is never able to get access to nuclear represewed shift our efforts with the rest of the world going after their terrorist ambitions. most importantly i had the privilege of talking with president obama last night who assured me as we move forward and discuss can w israel the enhanced certain security package that will be essential for us to provide to israel as well as ensure we tighten our ability to enforce this deal that i'd be part of a group of members in congress. that's critical for me. >> obviously a very, very difficult decision four. congressman wasserman schultz. there's a lot of politics i want to talk to you as well. the debates, hillary clinton,
6:29 am
planned parenthood. you agreed to talk to me on tuesday so we can address that. thank you for talking to me about this tough decision. the police hunt for the cop killer in illinois. one points the finger at the uptick in violence to president obama. that, when we come back. e. this changes everything.
6:30 am
what did iran's supreme leader get in the nuclear deal? to start with, $100 billion. they keep their nuclear facilities and ballistic missiles. there won't be surprise anytime-anywhere inspections. and after ten years, restrictions are lifted and iran could build a nuclear weapon in two months. congress should reject a bad deal. we need a better deal. it wouland it turned onif you turned oeverywhere room but that's exactly how traditional

6:32 am
6:33 am
is a "gotcha" question in the eye of the beholder? that's one of the question for this week's panel. cnn's chief political analyst. gloria borger. patti solis. and manu who just joined cnn, great to have you here. let's start with the great new numbers we have out of iowa and new hampshire when it come s s
6:34 am
political race there. in iowa. let's start with the republicans. in iowa. we have trump 29, carson 22, bush 6, fiorina, 5, paul, 5. this is where the numbers are more surprising in new hampshire. trump 28. kasich, 12. carson 11. busch 8%. let me start with you. what is happening with jeb bush? >> he's in a bit of a small collapse. it's only september. with kasich leaping ahead of him like that. that's a major problem for bush in new hampshire. >> kasich has been smart. he knows if he got a shot it's in the state of new hampshire. >> why? >> because in the primary, independents can cross over.
6:35 am
kasich's brand of government, he gets things down. they don't want to play dynamic politics and you're unhappy with jeb bush. you might want to give him a view. >> and they run in the same lane, politically. >> established, moderate. this poll just confirms that kasich is a huge threat to jeb who continues to catch fire. >> i also think jeb is losing to trump every day on this back and forth, attacking each other. he can't compete with trump on the art of the attack. he loses every day. >> speaking of which let's play sound with interview that donald trump did. he will be joining me at the reagan library. here's a quick excerpt that their that interview. >> are you familiar with p general solomani.
6:36 am
>> yes. go ahead. tell me. >> you runs the qods forces. >> i think the kurds are treated badly. >> not the kurds, the qods forces, the bad guys. >> that wasn't the most "gotcha" like part of that interview. it's when he rattled through a list of names. >> he rattled through a list of names but said, do you know who these people are. he didn't say -- >> you think this was a "gotcha" interview? >> it was very legitimate subject party. i think the way it was done is problem theic. you asked a question, something along the lines of who will this matter to. well, i got news to u-it won't matter the average voter in the primary. that's what matters to trump, and the other 16 candidates. a question like that, i'll take you back four years will get a newt gingrich-like response during the debate. and the candidate will win that
6:37 am
exchange with the voters. panels like this will sit around and say that's a terrible issue. >>. >> no one who supports donald trump will say, oh, never mind. they are going say this is a man to learn on the job. he's smart, successful, that's why you hire somebody. >> another back and forth on the campaign trail this week. came when donald trump criticized jeb bush for speaking spani spanish. that's a graphic. never mind. he said, donald trump said, i like jeb, he's a nice man. but he should really set the example by speaking english while in the united states. >> he's trying to insult his way to the presidency, is not going to, would. the fact he would say he can speak english is kind of ridiculous. this is a diverse country.
6:38 am
we should celebrate that diversity. he doesn't believe in those values. he doesn't believe in tolerance or the things that created the greatness of this country. >> that's some strong, strong language. clearly over the last couple of weeks they made the calculation that jeb -- that trump is here to engage with him and try to turn this into a two-man race, compare and contrast their record. jeb is taking this, almost rebuttirebut butting that attack that he's a low-energy candidate to show that. he's actually got fire in the belly. whether this works remains to be seen. even if he wants to make it a one-on-one race. there are 15 other candidates in the race. that's a big question for jeb going forward. >> i think this is good for jeb bush. he's married to a mexican-american woman. the fact he can speak spanish is a good thing especially if you're running for president. you want to address spanish
6:39 am
voters nationwide. i think this is good for him. but again i think he loses that engagement with donald trump, because he's not as good as it as trump is. >> we're going to take a quick break and have a whole democratic race to discuss. when we come back, new details about the clintons' staffer that they paid. this, as hillary clinton apologizes, kind of? of the year. really? i was just surprised. i'm interested to learn more about chevy. let's check out these 2015 chevy's. it's like a luxury car. i was shocked. i mean, this is chevy?

6:43 am
so, obviously, i think the secretary's people are getting very nervous about the kind of energy and enthusiasm our campaign is bringing forth. >> senator bernie sanders yesterday in altoona, iowa. talking about the fact that he seems to be getting attacked a lot by surrogates for the campaign of former secretary of state hillary clinton, and he says it's because they are nervous. let talk about it with our
6:44 am
panel, patti, former campaign manager or hillary clinton in 2008. sanders is up 41% to clinton's 32% in new hampshire. clinton is still ahead in iowa by 11 points but she is falling quite a bit. sanders 37 to clinton's 48. is she nervous? should she be nervous? >> i don't know if nervous is the right word for it but this has clearly become a very competitive race for her. i think competitive is good. she's always better when she's fighting for it. she's better when she's fighting for the middle class, for women and children and more importantly when she's fighting for her own candidacy. i think she proved that in '08 when she was losing to barack obama. she became a much better candidate. it was too late then at that point when she turned it around. but it's not too late now and i think with a competitive race you'll see a much better candidate from hillary clinton and it's a good thing for her. >> she's also fighting against herself. right? she's not only fighting against bernie sanders but she's got her
6:45 am
