out on the campaign trail. a new cnn wmur poll shows trump holding a 20-point lead in new hampshire. jeb bush and marco rubio are tied for third, 10% each. jay tapper looks at whether palin's back willing build on jump's lead. >> i love that donald trump does go rogue. >> reporter: she's always been supportive. but now sarah palin has made it official. >> welcome to our next president of the united states, donald j. trump! >> last fall, i asked the former alaska governor about a potential cabinet position with trump who had praised her. >> is there a particular area you think would line up best with your strengths in a position you would want to serve in? >> that's a great question.
i think a lot about the department of energy because energy is my baby. oil and gas and minerals. those things that god has dumped on this part of the earth for man kind's use. i think a lot about department of energy. if i were head of that, i would get rid of it. >> we're going to give them hell. >> the biggest question now is whether palin's endorsement will make a difference. >> he got the endorsement of sarah palin. when he heard, john mccain said well, then you're all set. >> conan o'brien aside, for those candidates running against trump, palin's support during their congressional campaigns was no joke. >> sarah palin jumped in early and supported rand paul. she supported marco rubio. let me tell you something, i would not be in the u.s. senate today if it were not for governor sarah palin. >> congress is full of palin beneficiaries, including arizona's jeff flake and iowa's
joanie ernst. the congressional candidates who received the most money from sarah apin lynn's pacs, about 2/3 won their seats. >> she's kind of the anti-establishment candidate. >> but can this famous friend of the underdog really boost the top dog? >> it's not going to mean a lot of momentum. >> reporter: in a conversation that we had with sarah palin last month, it seemed clear that she identifies with trump in the way that the republican establishment sneers at him. >> if we want to restore what's great about america, we have to when this thing. so shame on the gop establishment if they essentially boot a top tier candidate out. >> well, palin's jobs at the republican underscores.
the rest of the candidates battled it out for mainstream supporters. >> i respect her. but for her to say that donald trump is a conservative when he was pro abortion in the most recent past. he believed in higher taxes. he thought hillary clinton would be a great negotiator in iran. he's been all over the map on foreign policy. certainly not a conservative. rush limbaugh are now questioning his conservative credentials and i think they're right. >> i don't think he's going to do well. he spent $79 million. he's a low energy person. the last thing our country needs is another bush. i almost feel sorry for him, frankly. the only running back is he spends millions and millions of dollars on negative ads about me. other wise i wouldn't even talk about him. he's not doing well.
new hampshire he's doing a little better, but nationwide he's doing almost nothing. >> mr. trump said he's honored to be leading in that cnn poll. and also shows he would fare better against hillary clinton than bernie sanders. his rival, hillary clinton, would face tighter race against the same republicans. senator sanders is also outperforming clinton by 17 points in the democrat ic candidates in that survey. >> this is turning out to be a route really strange election season. >> trump called him a whack job
twice won the campaign trail. >> donald trump is attacking you. you know you've arrived. >> this is an indication that sanders is now being taken seriously prk not just on the democratic side, but also the republican opinions. >> i don't think we want to make too much out of it. donald trump is becoming more of a candidate day by day. one thing presidential candidates do is talk about the other party. so i think we can just see this as part of his e lugs of looking more like a regular candidate. >> part of bernie sanders' ef lougs, he's throwing a few elbows and out of the campaign trail, he's even sounding a little trumpish. he's bragging about his poll numbers. >> there's definitely a sense of anger and anxiety i think out among the electorate. we have survey data coming in and showing this and both of these gentlemen are tap into that. they're sounding the same
because they're both tap into that dimension. >> we're talking about donald trump thinking about the general lek. but right now, he doesn't have to really worry about the majority of what americans think about him. it's all about the republican primary. with that in mind, i guess the sarah palin endorsement, it's political gold at this point? >> well, i think it's actually a sign that he's worried about ted cruz. because why do you bring sarah palin out? you bring her out to shore up the tea party vote. and that tea party vote is not tronger for ted cruz than it is for donald trump, but those are the people who support ted cruz. . if he can peel off that support for ted cruz, then he doesn't have to worry about cruz at all. >> when we look at the tea party vote in iowa, are we talkin about a small group of voters within the republican caucuses who will actually go and vote? >> we're talking about a small group of people within the republican party, but not in the iowa republican party and not among caucusgoers.
i guess that's why the support is such a big move. once again, donald trump and sarah palin, even when republican candidates. >> it's a lot to put together. >> thank you for staying around. we'll talk to you soon. we'll go to the turmoil now in the financial markets. falling oil prices continue to drag down stocks. in the u.s., the dow fell more than 500 points on wednesday before regaining some ground to close down 1.5%. trading is under way in the asian pacific region and let's look at the numbers right now. tokyo's nikkei. we got the numbers? there we go. the nikkei, it's down by 1%. hong kong, the hang seng. shanghai in positive territory by half a percent.
and the asx 200, up almost by half a percent. the price of brent crude fell below $28 a barrel in u.s. trading. right now it's up about 1.5%. let's bring in cnn's paula hancocks. she's looking at all the activity in north korea. are we looking at the markets stabilizing at least a little bit here? >> well, it's certainly not as bad as it was yesterday. i think we can say that, john. and we're not seeing these markets rebounding in any meaningful way today. as you said, a couple of them were up, a couple were down. we're not necessarily seeing any regaining of what the markets have lost over the past few days. and, of course, many e perts and many analysts are saying you're not likely to see a rebound. you're not likely to see stability entering these markets until oil has hit bottom. so that's one of the crucial
factors that investors are looking at at this point. and it does look like there could be some instability in the oil price and pressure on the oil price for some time to come. bear in mind, there's an oversupply in the market. the world drowning in oil. then over the next weeks, potentially months, you have iran who is going to be adding to that supply. now western sanctions have been lift lifted and saudi arabia not wanting to pull back on their production. so that oil price is going to be under pressure for some time to come, which, of course, puts energy stocks under pressure, commodity stocks under pressure and makes commodities very nervous. >> it looks like it was close to $17 billion according to reports at this point.
it's not unusual for china to do.. it's a very important time in china. what we're seeing is the central bank really pumping this money into the banking system as they have in the past. john? >> paula hancocks looking at the markets. a short break here. when we come back, many in the u.s. are stocking up on food and supply. also a look at contaminated water in flint, michigan. how much the city's mayor says it will cost to undo the damage.

issue a political football. u.s. president barack obama addressed the problem during a visit to detroit on wednesday. >> i know if i was a parent up there, i would be beside myself that my kids' health could be at risk. >> rick gor nor rick snyder called on the state to fix this crisis. but critics say that's just a fraction of what's needed to undo the damage. the major says the final cost toub $1.5 billion. a democrat who represents the fifth district, he joins us there now. in your assessment, what more needs to be done by the state and the federal government right now? >> well, the federal government may be able to help. it did not cause this problem. that's why i think the lion's share of the responsibility falls to the state. they need to make sure that we
have immediate help to the people that are here and need drinkable water. that's under way. i'm glad the governor activated the national guard. but when we think about the real fix, the long-term fix to this, $28 million, it sounds like a lot of money, but it'sless than half than what the people in flint spent a year for the water they couldn't drink. it's not equal to the size of the problem. i know the governor says he plans on more resources. i hope it is robust enough response so that it's equal to the gravity of this crisis. we need help with our infrastructure, but especially what we need is support for those young children who will face developmental challenges as a result of having high levels of led exposure. they're going to need nutritional support, ongoing care for quite a number of years to come. that's the kind of help the state must come up with. >> congressman, what about accountability here? who's being held accountable for this disaster?
>> the justice department is look into this. they announced an investigation. our state's attorney general has done the same. i'm confident that the process of determining who is ultimately responsible will be led by the facts. and so for me that's an important question. but accountable for a purpose, not just to say somebody was at fault, but so we know who we need to turn to to make it right. so far, all roads lead to lansing when it comes to accountable. there may be others, but this was made by an emergency manager to protect environmental quality. i think that's really where the lion's share of the responsibility falls. >> there was this cartoon and it
shows two drinking fountains, one that's labelled white enit's clear drinking water and the other is labelled colored with dirty drinking water. that's sort of what a lot of people have been saying in flint, isn't it? this is a poor black community and their voices have not been heard. what's your take on that? >> flint is my hometown. i've seen it go through a lot. while it might not be implicit, there's an implicit bias against older cities. it's hard to imagine the differences that have been exhibited if this had happened in a much more affluent community. now some people might say that's an unfair charge, but i'm just going by the facts. it is very difficult for me to imagine six, seven, eight months passing without any real action if this were a more affluent community. i suspect there would have been
immediate urgent action to help the community. >> thank you very being with us. >> getting ready for what could be the biggest snowstorms in history. it's already snowing in washington, d.c. the mayor is asking residents there to stay off the roads. the storm system could affect tens of millions of people in virginia. officials have reported 153 accidents due to slippery roadways. let's go to our meteorologist standing by. we also got word at nashville, all public schools will be closed on thursday again because of icy roads. so this is shaping up to be a big one. >> it is. and that's not even the main event, john. in fact, that storm will actually just be gathering its punch by thursday afternoon into friday. that's when we expect it to be the big blos buster that we talk about. this has the potential to see records shattered into the nation's capital. the storm total from the storm,
the potential could double and well exceed the entire season from last year. here's a look at the latest watches. currently, winter storm watches from kentucky to virginia as well into maryland. that's where we actually have blizzard watches. the exact track of the low, we say it time and time again. that is crucial, because if it hugs the coast, we see the snowfall travel further north. we see the northern periphery stop at new york and boston. in fact, take a look at the difference between snowfall totals between three separate cities. we're talking about washington, d.c. potentially receiving up to 30 inches of snow. new york, only seven inches, this is actually down from ten, and boston, that's right, 0 inches of snow. only a few snowflakes
anticipated because they will be on the outer periphery of the heavy bands. do we have all the ingredients for a nornor'easter? you betcha. severe weather possible from louisiana into alabama, as well as parts of georgia. then we see the icing take place across kentucky and into the carolinas. and then finally the snow overspreads the nation's capital just south of new york city. take a look at this, john. we could experience three fourth to an inch of ice accumulation. so that is not the only concern, snow, ice and strong winds and coastal erosion. back to you. >> need to get a jacket on there in a studio. looks like it's pretty cold. thanks. >> 2015 was the warmest year on earth since recordkeeping began more than a century ago. according to the national oceanic and atmospheric administration and nasa, the average temperature laps year was 1.62 degrees fahrenheit.
el nino in the pacific was mostly to blame for the higher temperatures. but the change was also largely driven by an increase in carbon die oxide and other manmade emissions. democrats blocked a republican bill that would have limited syrian and iraqi refugees. the bill would have said that officials had to certify each refugee is not a threat. paul ryan, the speaker of the house said in a statement, senate democrats are making it that much harder for us to keep americans safe. their vote is irresponsible in a time of grave threats. immedia
many asylum seekers worry that their homes are too easy to spot and made them target for abuse. >> to an outsider, these red doors may look like a cheery decoration, brightening the streets of this largely industrial town in northeast england, but to those who live behind them, it can feel like a target, as the majority belong to asylum seekers, like 32-year-old abdal also ashir. >> you're telling everyone, i'm asylum seeker. i'm less person and that i should be targeted. and that's what's happening. >> the allegations were brought to light by the "times" of london which found that many asylum seekers in the area have felt stigmatized by the red doors. >> i have seen paint but i don't know exactly what it means. i know after a couple of days it is target.
>> after reports of arson, vandalism and intimidation, a local politician is bringing the issue to parliament's front door and pointing a finger at the contractor in charge of housing asylum seekers in the area. >> it has 168 properties in two wards. 155 of them have their front door to the street painted red. and this simply marks out those properties and their inhabitants for those with racial intent. >> something the property owner denies. >> i don't think really the average guy walking down the street would be able to distinguish -- to make any distinguishment between asylum and other properties. >> the company that overseas joe mast and awarded the asylum housing contract for the area says there's no policy to house asylum seekers behind red doors but promises to repaint the doors different colors. but are the door colors just the
tip of the iceberg? communities where the proportion of asylum seekers is the highest in britain. that's what one local campaigner for refugees believes. >> the housing issues like the schedules that people have to have no common language or faith or culture. there's the issue of them not having that forum to be able to take things forward. >> reporter: a problem that may go deeper than paint on the front doors of a few hundred asylum seekers. >> cnn, london. >> a short break here. when we come back, bernie sanders is opening the excitement of his campaign will appeal to voters in iowa. also, how a deadly attack in a university in pakistan exposed divisions within the taliban. i take pictures of sunrises, but with my back pain

>> welcome back. bernie sanders would fare better than hillary clinton in matchups with republican presidential candidates. that's according to the latest cnn/wmur poll in new hampshire. the poll finds secretary clinton down by 27 points to senator sanders. people in the mid-atlantic area of the u.s. are preparing for what could be a winter storm of enormous proportions.
blizzards are expected there late friday. d.c. could receive up to 60 centimeters of snow. we're keeping a close eye where investors are looking to recover some of this year's major losses. hong kong, sang sang, down by more thanksgiving 1.5%. an attack on. >> university of pakistan has exposed divisions in pakistan. four militants were killed. a pakistani taliban spokesperson claimed responsibility, but another spokesperson denied any role. >> more now on the latest poll from new hampshire which has bernie sanders beating rival hillary clinton in a democratic
primary race. the cnn/wmur survey also shows sanders leading five republicans in those hypothetical matchups. clinton would face tighter races against the republicans. this comes as both candidates to try to appeal to voters in another crucial state. that would be iowa. >> in 2008, barack obama ran one of the greatest campaigns in history. he rewrote the rule book right here in iowa. in a state that launched the president's path to the white house -- >> they said this day would never come. >> i think any objective in our campaign and excitement it is generating with young people and
working people, compare that to secretary clinton's campaign. >> sanders has a stunning 27 point lead over clinton in new hampshire. today bill clinton urged voters there to take another look. >> we're on a home field disadvantage here. but the real issue is who can win the election, who's prepared to do the job, who can make real change. >> and secretary clinton fought back in a new tv ad. >> the person who lives here has to solve problems as big as world and is as small as your kitchen table. >> i can't do it by myself. that's why we're here today. that's why we're canvassing. because in our history, change has always happened from the bomb up. >> it's an open question whether
sanders, a 74-year-old democratic socialist, can replicate obama's massive organization. >> i think we've got a real shot to win here and i'm feeling really, really good. >> a record setting 239,000 people took part in the 2008 iowa caucuses. party officials believe turnout will be far lower this time because sanders hasn't spent a year building a robust team. >> sanders is going hard after the value of clinton's experience. >> he was secretary of state. that gives you a lot of experience. >> dick cheney had a hell of a lot of experience. god help us all. >> bernie sanders finishing that report there. now there's a support that clinton's private e-mail server contained classified intelligence from top secret programs. clinton prushed off the report as a leak without evidence designed to hurt her campaign.
she denied sending or receiving classified materials on her server. donald trump spoke about that with our don lemon. >> how would you be so stupid to have done such a thing. this shows such bad judgment. how can a person running for president and wanting to be president show this kind of judgment. and historically she's had this judgment, whether it's whitewater. it's always something. it's always something dramatic. and it's bad judgment. >> a former fbi agent last seen in iran in 2007 calls mixed messages from the u.s. government outrageous. white house officials say they believe robert levenson is not in iran but somewhere else in southwest asia. >> we have reason to believe he no longer is in i pran -- iran. the. >> the fbi has been heading up the investigation into his disappearance.
evan perez has been speaking with officials there. >> fbi investigators believe if he's still live, he's being held in iran, but that's in contrast to the comments we heard from the white house and state department officials saying that levenson is no longer believed to be in iran. he's a former fbi agent. and at the time he disappeared in 2007, he was working at a cia contractor. his family has been highly critical of the deal announced this weekend in which iran released five u.s. citizens it held in prison while the u.s. released seven iranians it held and dropped charges against others. >> iran is promising to help with the levenson investigation. and the iranian foreign minister is speaking to the media for the first time since sanctions against his country were lifted. and now christiane amanpour asked zarif about the recent tensions between iran and saudi arabia.
>> iran and saudi arabia can be two important players who can complement each other in the region. we don't expect or we're not interested even in pushing saudi arabia out of this region because saudi arabia is an important player in this region. >> zarif also criticized the u.s. for new sanctions it imposed on iran because of a dmisic missile test. he called those measures a nuisance. we go to kabul now. seven of its employees were killed in a suicide attack that targeted a bus carrying journalist. the taliban has claimed responsibility. a spokesman from the militant group is accusing the tv for spying for the west. officials say the militants who raided a university in pakistan
timed their attack during a ceremony to try and kill as many people as possible. at least 19 people died in wednesday's siege. four militants were also killed. the pakistani taliban spokesman claimed responsibility, but another spokesman denied any role. let's go to alexandra field right now. she joins us live from new delhi. is there any reason why this particular university was targeted? >> quite likely, john. this university is in the northwestern part of pakistan. it's an area that's long been a strong hold for militant groups which means it's also the area where the pakistani military ferrets out groups like the pakistani taliban. this is obviously considered something of a soft target. it's a word used a lot. militants with some amount of ease can generate a lot of tensions for their terrorist activities. this was a university where they were holding a celebration. there was a maximum number of people on campus.
some 3,000 students. some 600 guests. it brought a lot of people together. it was an opportunity in the eyes of the terrorists to do something that would draw the most attention possible. it would also have the possibility for the maximum number of casualties which is what terrorists seem to do in these types of attack, john. again, this is a school that is not too far from the zmool pashawar, which was the site of another terrorist attack carried out by pakistani taliban back in 2014. no one forgets that attack because more than 140 people were killed then. many of them young children. >> obviously going after many casualties as possible in some way. so this attack could have been a lot worse. but they had recently increased security on campus. what more do you know about that? >> officials are saying they were able to mitigate some of the casualties to some extent. we know the military operation was successful and were able to
take out four attackers. we now know there were only four attackers. there have been recent intelligence assess. s that predicted attacks in the region. that gave the university some time of prepare. they say they brought extra security guards onboard. there were extra security measures implemented, given the fact that this celebration going on. and because of that, they say they were able to contain these attackers to just one portion of the campus. john. a short break here on newsroom l.a. a final report is said to be released into the investigation of a vocal russian critic. more on that when we come back. also you'll hear what american artist had to say when he was detained for trying to leave south africa with a very unusual document. ♪

>> we're following some dangerous winter weather which is hitting schools. in washington, drivers are being told to stay off the roads. derek van dam live at the cnn weather center with the very latest. this is just getting started. >> you're right, john. national public schools being closed tomorrow. virginia state police indicating over 150 accidents have already occurred. and it looks as if president obama has also had a bit of a difficult time adjusting to the change in weather in the nation's capital. you can see him almost slipping as he exited air force one there. that is thanks to a snowstorm that is still brewing. those snow fakes you saw there are not the main event. in fact, the blockbuster snowstorm we continued to talk about is still gathering steam across the gulf coast states.
we've got the possibility of severe weather. up to an inch of ice possible throughout the carolinas. and then the main event, that being the snowstorm that could create blizzard historic conditions across the nation's capital will highlight it all for you coming up op the show. back to you. >> thank you for the update. we'll check in a little later this hour. >> sarah palin is back on the campaign trail, stumping for donald trump a day after she gave him her endorsement. the former vice presidential candidate missed a stop in iowa on wednesday morning, but she caught up with the republican front-runner in oklahoma. her campaign speech is much like her endorsement speech. it's aimed at firing up conservative voters. >> are you ready to stump for trump? i'm here to support the next president of the united states. >> we're going to make our country great again. we're going to win, we're going to win and we're going to win!
>> trump has reason to be confident. a new poll shows he's holding his 20-point lead in new hampshire. his nearest rival senator cruz is on the rise. jeb bush and marco rubio tie for third with 10% each. and trump is taking aim at democrat hillary clinton over e-mails on her personal server. a report says capitol hill ton's server contained classified intelligence from top secret programs. truch says the issue goes to clinton's character. >> why would you be so stupid to have done such a thing. how can a person wanting to be president show this kind of judgment? it's always something. >> hillary clinton brushed off the report, calling it a leak
designed to hurt her campaign. >> as jeb bush moves to third place in that new hampshire poll, h he's stressing he's more electable than donald trump. >> he's the big personality on the stage, but that's not how you win elections. we need a committed son r conservative that has a proven record to take on hillary clinton. the clinton hit machine will be fierce. and you need to have someone who actually has a proven record that's been thoroughly vetted that can take her on and take her own directly. >> more about trump's lead in the 2016 republican presidential race for the nomination. you're a political professor of political science at ucla. let's talk about this hook-up. she's kind of toxic in a general election. right now it's all about iowa and delivering that group of conservative tea party voters. is she going to do it? is she the right ticket for trump? >> donald trump is still beating ted cruz with the tea party
voters. but i think bringing her on at this moment in time is a sign that he's a little worried about ted cruz. so he wants to hold that lead that he has among the tea party voters. >> this seems to be about sealing the deal. donald trump does not leave much to chance. >> he's a great tactician. >> not a great strategist? >> i think that's exactly what i mean. >> donald trump if nothing else, has managed to again control the news cycle for the last 24 hours. most of the coverage has been trump and palin. and if any candidate has had a look in here, it's been what do you think about trump and palin? ted cruz, has he lost momentum because of this? >> i know there are a lot of people saying that, but i'm not willing to go there. i think the facts that everybody is attacking ted cruz is because he is surging. he is the guy right now who people are trying to stop. anticipate so although it's uncomfortable for him, it's probably a good sign. >> okay, sarah palin, donald trump, you look at them on the stage together.
they always seem like, the presidential nominee and the vice presidential nominee. i know we saw this in 2008. is that possible? or is sle just too toxic come the general leks? >> i doubt that's where it's heading for two reason ps .the first is it doesn't work out too well for john mccain. the second is that she probably doesn't want to give up her new status to go be a government employee. so she's really become a celebrity herself. and why give that up? >> she did say she liked the department of energy, secretary of energy. but i guess she chooses reality tv. >> only to take it apart, though. it's a one-day job. >> one ning i found interesting, how much has she changed? the sarah palin of 2016 seems very, very different to the sarah palin of 2008. in your opinion, how has she changed? >> i think she's become much more comfortable as a celebrity. and she is.
she as much of a tv personality as donald trump. the way she talks to the crowds, the way she knows the room, she was good at it in 2008, she's prosecutety masterful at it now. >> many analysts question how much trump will gain from having palin's endorsement. but there's no denying her ability to draw a crowd. day two of a political marriage made in sound bite heaven. >> kick isis' ass! >> it's not so much what she says but what she brings says the deputy campaign manager for mccain/palin. >> they went from having ral loifs 8,000 people to 15, 20, 30, even 40,000 person rallies after sarah palin joined the ticket.
now for trump -- >> what are we not talking? about? we're not talking about ted cruz, marco rubio, ted cruz. that's the big deal out of all of this for donald trump is that he again has found a way to dominate the news cycle for multiple days. >> the reality tv star turned politician finding traction in and a politician turned reality tv star. in 2009, palin resigned as governor of alaska and entered the land of entertainment. her show canceled after one season. a second show followed. >> where are you heading? >> somewhere amazing. >> "amazing america" on the sportsman channel. she helped pen three books,
earning millions in the process. she pulled in 100,000 an event. she joined fox news as a commentator and was a featured parody on "saturday night live." >> i can see russia from my house. >> reporter: her daughter bristol got her own reality tv show about being a single mom. >> i was thinking about calling levi. >> even levi johnston, the father of bristol's first baby made a few bucks on some nuts. she manages to shake up the establishment in family troubles. and today, the conservative proud once again, embracing palin as she addresses her son's arrest, calling it the effects of p st sd after serving in iraq. >> when my own son is going through what he goes through coming back. >> so where does palin go from here? the 2008 mccain/deputy mccain manager says his advice -- get her on the road as much as
possible. >> we're joined now to the turmoil in the world's financial markets where falling oil prices continue to drag stocks down. trading has just ended for the day in tokyo. the nikkei finished down almost 2.5%. shanghai composite down 1.25%. in hong kong, negative territory as well. down by 1.33%. the asx up by almost 0.5. 3 the dow reclosed down 1.5. the nasdaq was down 0.1%. let's bring in paula hancocks. look at the markets around asia right now. the numbers in negative territory is significant, but
it's not the huge force we've seen. is there possibly some stabilization here? >> well, john, we are still seeing these markets heading down, as you say. >> they're not small drops. we're seeing a downward trend. of course, the main thing that they will be looking at is those oil prices. the oil prices dip even lower. we're seeing these markets dip even lower. the fact is we want see, according to some analysts when we're gong to see stability in these markets. if the oil prices have not found a bottom at this point.
it will connell expect to become worse. the world is drowning in oil, it used the word drowning. of course, that is a concern and that's going to keep these markets jittery. john? >> if we look at the situation in china, the central bank just put a lot of money into the banking system. how and why? >> they pumped in almost $17 billion. they said publicly over the next couple of weeks it will be about $91 billion in all. this is what they quite often do before the lunar new year, a very important holiday in china. a week h of long holiday when many people are feasting. they're exchanging gifts with each other and so they are looking for cash. and certainly, the central bank is saying that it's trying to do this at this point so that it eases any liquidity squeezes that you might see over the next couple of weeks. but they've certainly been injecting a lot of money in the
banking system, not just because of the lunar new year, but recently to try to ease stability in that banking system. just last year, remember the market turmoil you saw last summer. goldman sachs said they injected $236 billion at that point. so this isn't something new we're seeing, but i think the timing at this point, according to the central bank, is pegged to that upcoming holiday. john? >> paula, thank you. paula hancocks live at this hour in seoul. the dow down 1,600 points so far this year, the market is officially in a correction. a look at how we got here. >> the trading day started badly and when new york opened it got worse. the new york market was down at one point and had fallen 560 points at one point. towards the afternoon, though, calmer minds came into the market.
and the dow jones industrials clawed back many of the losses. it was still down nearly 250 at the closing bell rang. behind all of this, the falling price of oil, which just keeps dropping. brent crude was off nearly 2%, while west texas was down nearly 7%. both now under $27 a barrel. putting this all together, the markets are seriously concerned about the future direction, the strength of the global economy, and where indeed to go next. the next few days will be marked by volatility. richard quest, cnn, davos. >> michigan lawmakers approved millions to fix the water in the city of flint. we speak with erin brockovich about what else needs to be done as well as similar problems all

>> the east coast of the united states getting ready for multithe biggest storm in a long time. the major is asking everyone to stay home if they can. the system could affect tens of millions of people in virginia. state police reported 163 car accidents because of slippery conditions. nashville, public schools are closed on thursday. meteorologist derek van dam joins us now with more on this. and, you know, the big day is going to be friday, isn't it? >> that's right. you've been paying attention, haven't you, john? >> i've been taking notes. >> good for you. as should everybody along the east coast of the united states. there are three important criteria that need to be fete for this full-on business sard to take shop. -- shape. this all needs to occur for three hours or more. so will we reach that criteria? the answer is, yes, most definitely. we've got blizzard watches across the greater washington or baltimore area.
nashville, tennessee, through western virginia. we have 12 to 24 inches. the bull's eye still centered on maryland and the nation's capital for the potential of two feet of snow. that's according to american gfs model, the global forecast model. and on top of that, we've got the winds to help meet that blizzard criteria as well. look at the wind gusts well in excess for three hours in the nation's capital. the northern periphery of the storm is so incredibly crucial. take a look at this. washington, d.c., the forecast calls for 30 inches. that's double their average snowfall. and way more snow than they experienced just in one season last year. but let's compare that to other major cities along the east coast, including new york city. now there's washington, 30 inches. new york, seven inches. that's actually down from ten inches. an earlier computer model run. that's not a typo there.
boston, we're not actually anticipating any snowfall. just a few flakes. they'll certainly feel the winds from this particular storm. this storm is still gathering some steam across the gulf of mexico. by the way, we have a potential of severe weather across louisiana and alabama, as well as florida. that's for thursday. then into friday we have the potential of ice from tennessee into south carolina. and then we start to shift that focus along the east coast. the snow overspreads the nation's capital. look at this, john. we have the potential of a quarter to half an inch of ice accumulation with upwards of two feet of snow. that means interstate 95 is going to be extremely treacherous for travel. >> i notice you didn't mention it's going to be 70 degrees in l.a. tomorrow. >> rub it in. >> talk to you tomorrow. parts of the u.s. are embracing for freezing temperatures. europe had a record warm year in 2015 according to new data
released by nasa. i'm joined by a former astronaut with nasa. we're looking at this new record. does this indicate we're now on track for the planet to continue to get warmer and warmer and warmer. >> it's not just a snapshot in time. we've been tracking the trends of global warming for the past several years. what's more remarkable is that in 2014, we had a record high average temperature. and you could argue whether or not it was a real number but clearly this year in 2015, there was enough of an increase that -- >> big increase. >> big increase, exactly. >> okay, so what about the scientists who attribute some of this to el nino. as port of the warming trend. i think it's clear that el nino does have a contribution. but in studies of prooef us el ninos, we have a warmer contribution that didn't lead to a similar type of global
warming. there is some factor in there. but the trend is headed in the upper direction. >> the good news is when we found a new planet and it's really, really big. it's a ninth planet? what more do we know about this ninth planet? and when can we go? >> it's gong to be very, very cold. it's out beyond the orbit of pluto. there's strong indications there's a large mass that's orbiting outside the perimeter of pluto's orbit. and influencing other celestial bodies that are out there. >> of. >> so it's all about gravitational pulls and what's happening around it. so very cold. we can warm that up when we get there. we're also looking at a pretty big special moment, as we looked at the skies. what's this alignment of the planets? when is this all happening? >> over the course of the next monday month our near neighborhoods in the solar
system, mercury, venus, mars, jupit jupiter, saturn are all going to be visible in the eastern sky in the early morning hours. so it will be a great celestial phenomenon for us to see them from the naked eye. >> how often does this happen? >> well, for them to happen at all different points in time, i don't know when the next time this is going to happen. so i'm going to be sure i'll go watch that. >> this is one of the things where people do weird things when they see stuff in the sky. thank you for joining your expertise. >> one last question, just quickly before you go. what do you say to people who say the planet is not getting warmer. the warming stopped a couple of years ago? >> you have to look at the data. and it's hard to argue with the
data. clearly you see an increasing trend. and, you know, 2016 will show us what the numbers are. and i think all indications are that we're headed in that same direction. >> and we've got that 2 degree celsius point we've got to be careful of. >> exactly. and we're about halfway there. >> okay. when we take a short break, sarah palin stumps for trump. we'll take a look at her latest palinisms with our very own palintologist. and the network was born. then, we connected more and more people until it became clear that the network was not a fad or aluxury but a basic human necessity. and so, at&t built a network, just for you. one that connects your family and friends... your businesses, devices...

>> it's been many years since we've seen sarah pay pin lyn. her endorsement of donald truch put her at scepter stage, just like it's 2008 again. she's developed an interesting turn of phrase the last couple years. we're joined right now to talk a little bit more about the message and the appeal of palin speak. okay, i think it's fair to say, no one in u.s. politics delivers
a speech like sarah palin. >> that is very true. >> we'll start with a golden oldie. >> they tell us to chill. they're stomping on our neck and they're telling us to chill. no, we're not going to chill. it's time to drill, baby, drill on what's going on and hold them accountab accountable. >> drill, baby, drill. what else is she mixing in here. what's she talk about? >> i don't know. somewhere in her head, i think it made sense before it came out. it's like the wedding toast gone wrong. someone starts talking and you have no idea what they're talk about. >> another phrase, another memorable moment. >> she's talking about opium. >> power when he's in d.c., it's
not going to come off of opium, other people's money. that opm, the other dopes in washington are high on. they take it from you and distribu distribute. that's not donald trump. >> barack obama and the democrats, they say they're the big spenders. first of all, trump doesn't need your money. >> the opium -- of everything she said, that sort of threw me because, she looks like she was sort of on something anyway. and then to start making a drug reference in a conservative world just seemed sort of out of step.
>> maybe she didn't know what opium was. >> she had a new line in oklahoma about not being red enough>> it's funny to be here in oklahoma, here, the land of red dirt with your red bud trees and here we got a redhead from the big red apple running for president. and yet the gop machine all of a sudden, they're say we're not red enough. we're not conservative enough. >> who's the redhead? it's trump that she's referring to? >> i couldn't really tell. again, i assume that's what she was referring to him as. we don't quite know the hair color. >> it's more orange than red. >> it's orange skin. that was an interesting thing for her to draw attention to rather than politics.
>> one of the favorite themes of sarah palin going back all the way to 2008 about barack obama is that he is weak. that he is a weak leard and she managed to mix in a little bit of current news with this zinger to the crowd. >> what the enemy was doing was sending a message to the rest of the world and that message they tried to send was, oh, they will capture and america will kowtow and america will apologize. and then in the deal, we will bend over and then say thank you. >> and this is the kind of stuff that the tea party and the ultraconservatives, they eat this up. it's like obama is weak, people are taking advantage of the united states. and she's sort of, you know, there's a lot of mixed short of imagery going on here. >> she's somebody who's given up politics for entertainment. i don't think se she sees hes as a politician. she sees herself as an
entertainer. and watching her do that was watching that comedian you've watched too many times. they have like five bits. they fall back into the old bits and try to force it into bl it's telling jokes about the cue bin missile crisis. it doesn't apply anymore and she doesn't quite know that. >> just in general watching the endorsement on tuesday, i thought, this is the first time that donald trump lost control of the message. for 37 minutes, he was not controlling the message coming from his campaign. >> that was actually my favorite part of the whole thing was trying to picture the thought bubble going on in his head. was he planning what he was going to have for dinner? was he deciding how quickly he dumps her after iowa? also her looking at her notes. did it sound in her head like the rest of us watching it? is i did not see the connection. >> the fiery speech, brought up a lot of people.
maybe not the reception that donald trump received, but certainly -- >> it's like watching "celebrity apprentice." >> thanks for being with us. and thank you for watching cnn news room. i'm john vasuse. please stay with us. those new glasses? they are. do i look smarter? yeah, a little. you're making money now, are you investing? well, i've been doing some research. let me introduce you to our broker. how much does he charge? i don't know. okay. uh, do you get your fees back if you're not happy?

interview with iran's foreign minister, zarif, since the nuclear deal has been in place. what about the feud with saudi arabia? >> we do in the have a fight to pick with saudi arabia. unfortunately the fact is that the instability in our region is caused by a panic in saudi arabia. >> plus, ahead of planned syria attacks, how have iran and russia bolstered asaad's bargaining power? the u.n. special envoy joins me here live.
>> good evening. welcome to the program. we are live at the world economic forum. as makers and shakers gather here in the swiss alps, one country has changed from dramatically since last year's meeting. that's iran. with sanctions now lifted, the country is a brand new emerging market. but the oil glut and plummeting prices plus its feud with saudi arabia are all causing real worry. so how does all this look to iran? i asked the foreign minister in his first tv interview since p implementation day. the first time to talk about the imp plemtation and the new day. is iran happy about this new
chapter? >> of course. we worked very hard for several years. we withstood pressured sanctions, probably the most expensive sanctions as in any country, but our people did not give up their rights because of they were under economic pressure. we started with the presenincipf nonzero sum, as some economists say, positive sum so everybody would look at what they needed to achieve, explain what they needed to achieve and achieve it. from our perspective, we wanted two things. we wanted to have our nuclear program which was peaceful, and we wanted removal from sanctions. from the other side, they wanted to make sure we wouldn't build nuclear weapons. from my perspective, from day one, it was a win/win situation. we could provide them with what
they needed because we didn't expect or didn't intend to develop nuclear weapons, and at the same time, we had to work out the details. and because of the extent of mistrust that existed, we needed to work out every minute detail of what we needed to do. >> and that was obviously difficult and took several years. >> two years. >> at the end of it, it was john and zarif. secretary kerry said you formed a good working relationship. do you agree? >> we did work together. i mean, there is a lot of mistrust between the two countries but we managed to be able to talk to each other, to send e-mails, and that started almost two and a half years ago when we met for the first time behind the security council for half an hour, i guess. >> where does that lead now. just as the american prisoners were leaving iranian air space,
president obama slapped more sanctions because of the ballistic missile the test that you conducted. is that all out the window now, the good working relationship? >> well, of course, that hurts. because we believe that we are entielts entitled to our defense. >> they said it was against international sanctions. >> it is not. it is not against the nuclear deal. it's not even against the security council resolution. >> why are there sanctions on them? >> because the united states has this fixation on missiles. now, they do not pay attention to the fact that they sell billions of dollars worth of military hardware to our neighbors. and iran is deprived, should not be deprived of the means of its defense. we develop our means of defense ourselv ourselves, and we have every right to defend ourselves. >> under the u.n. sanctions us
mi missiles were okay? >> no. there is terminology, and it was the subject of month and month of negotiations. iran has been called upon to -- not to develop or test ballistic missiles which are designed to be capable of carrying nuclear weapons. we're not going to have nuclear warheads, so we don't design anything to be capable of carrying nuclear warheads. as i hear secretary carter said, the entire focus was on preventing iran from having a nuclear warhead. we believe we never wanted to have a nuclear warhead. now the national community can make sure iran will never have nuclear warheads. that should basically relieve this anxiety that iran is developing missiles that are designed to be capable of carrying nuclear warheads. we believe there was no base in law. there was no base in reality. and it wasn't necessary. it was a nuisance that the
united states decided to do this. i call it an addiction. an addiction something the united states has to sanctions and pressure. i think just like people who smoke, they know they don't work, but the addiction prevents them from just calling it quits. so i think it's best if the united states would once and for all determine for itself that sanctions don't work. that with iran, negotiations, talking, respect, always works. >> let me then talk about the negotiations that led to the release of the americans in iranian jails. >> and iranians in u.s. jails. >> exactly. i want to talk about the holdup at the last second when jason rezaian, "the washington post" journalist was forbidden from bringing his family, or at least his wife and mother couldn't travel. it took calls between you and the secretary of state to unblock that we hear. give me an idea of that. >> you see, there has always
been miscommunication. people in the united states believe that that was part of a deal. people in tehran didn't know that was part of a deal. and as soon as secretary kerry showed me that it was part of deal, it just took a call. >> you mean, to have wife and mom come with? >> yes. >> he said it was part of the deal and you said okay? >> yeah. if it was part of a deal and we have committed ourselves to it, we just have to carry out what we have committed ourselves to. that's what we do. iran, you see, everybody was saying that iran would never implement the nuclear agreement. we implemented ahead of time. that is why everybody was expecting the implementation day in april or may. we had it in january. that's the type of people we are. we implement. we fulfill our promises. people had been promised in the long negotiations that took place between us and the united states, because unfortunately, people don't know about the fact that many iranians, iranian
americans, actually, lingered in jail in the united states for simply allegations of violations of these economic sanctions. i'm happy for all the families. i'm happy for all of them who now have the loved ones with them. we believe they had committed acts that were illegal, but the families are -- i'm happy for their families. all of them are iranian american families. i'm happy for the families of other iranian american families who live in the united states but are back to thundershowo th ones. >> if that's a good happy family situation that we have now, everybody is seriously worried about the most alarming feud in the region. that is between you and saudi arabia. there have been dueling op eds between you and the foreign minister of saudi arabia and where is this going to end? the saudi foreign minister has
said iran is trying to obscure its dangerous policies as well as its support for terrorism by leveling unsub substantiated charges against saudi arabia. >> it was unsubstantiated charges. people who murdered others in san bernardino had just visited saudi arabia. but i'm tired of this. >> should saudi arabia be panicking that iran is back in the united nations? >> we were always in the community of nations. now their allies have recognized that iran is a serious partner. up until then it was a saudi allies, particularly the united states, who was at heads with iran. now it hasn't changed but the saudis are panicking that there may be a slight opportunity that tensions between iran and the west would reduce. and that smoke screen that had allowed them to export this
ideology of extremism to -- if that smoke screen disappears, then people see we'll call a spade a spade. unfortunately, and we don't have a fight to pick with saudi arabia. unfortunately the fact is that the instability in our region is caused by a panic in saudi arabia that believes there is a disequ disequilibri disequilibrium. we believe that iran and saudi arabia can be two important players who can accommodate each other and implemecomplement eac in the important. we're not interested even in pushing saudi arabia out of this region, because saudi arabia is an important player in this region. unfortunately, the saudis have had the illusion that backed by the western allies, they could push iran out of the equation, and they were successful for some time. iran was excluded from the talks
on syria. >> do you think there will be talks? they have been moved to january 25 january 25th, tentatively, and what do you see about concerns about russian air strikes have supported president asaad and have in many people's view, perhaps made any notion of meaningful negotiations invalid now? that asaad is back and thinks he's going to win. >> there is no military solution to syria. we believe it. i hope that others believe it too. there is no military solution. we've insisted there should be a political solution, but the political solution means you cannot determine the outcome of the dpoernegotiations before yo start the negotiations. for the past few years some people in the region and most in the west, wanted to determine the outcome of the negotiations saying that president asaad should not be a part of the future of syria before they even started the negotiations. now many people are coming back to their senses saying that negotiations between syrians
need to determine the outcome inside the negotiating room. not before they even start the negotiations. so i believe if everybody has the right perception, and sets aside illusions about the future of these negotiations, there's every reason they should take place. iran has committed itself to support the negotiations. since iran joined the talks on syria, we've had good progress. we were able to adopt a security council resolution. according to secretary kerry was based on a plan i presented a couple years ago but was resisted. we're happy to be moving in the right direction of talks among syrians for a political solution with the syrians determining their future, not with us determining their future for them. >> foreign minister, thank you indeed. >> good to be with you. >> up next, i interview the united nations special envoy to syria live. will he be able to send out the
invitations to the syria peace talks scheduled for next week? in new york state, we believe tomorrow starts today. all across the state the economy is growing, with creative new business incentives, the lowest taxes in decades, and university partnerships, attracting the talent and companies of tomorrow. like in utica, where a new kind of workforce is being trained. and in albany, the nanotechnology capital of the world. let us help grow your company's tomorrow, today at business.ny.gov joining her daughter's yoga class.ng about she was thinking about her joints. but now that she's taking osteo bi-flex, she's noticing a real difference in her joint comfort. with continued use, it supports increased flexibility over time. karen: "she's single." it also supports wonderfully high levels of humiliation in her daughter. karen: "she's a little bit shy." in just 7 days, your joint comfort can be your kid's discomfort.

after some initial optimism about the political track and a date for peace talks tentatively set for monday next week, john kerry and his russian counterpart met today in switzerland to iron out who can attend peace talks and whether the peace talks will start on monday as planned. the u.n. special envoy is the man who knows, and he joins me now. so do you know, are you actually going to be able to send out the invites for these talks to start in geneva on monday? >> on monday, i can't tell you today. i'll tell you one day before. >> it's that fraught? >> that's correct. there are a lot of work still to be done. what we want to ensure is that this time it will not be like geneva. a serious talk about peace and not talk about talk. >> what can you achieve in these next few days before monday
given that the russians and president asaad have basically said no, we're not going to have these people at this conference, and they say we want these people at the conference, and then some of the opposition say we don't even want to go unless the bombardment of civilians stop. can you resolve that in two days or three? >> first of all, i'm not alone. we had a group with russia and america that are talking? >> russia is not playing a neutral role. >> correct, but they're also interested in making these talks start. there is something different than before. they really have a genuine interest in seeing the talks starting. now, these are about syrians. at a certain point, vetoes is part of posturing and negotiations. in diplomacy, we know it. you're seeing how between iran and the u.s., diplomacy can work, but there's a lot of preparation. i believe we can start the talks, perhaps not on the 259,
but we need to maintain the pressure. >> what about iran? they have obviously been the ground forces, the shock troops along with their hezbollah allies. iran is on the ground. >> every negotiation, unfortunately, is history, and you and i have seen that many, when there's a serious potential for the real negotiations, you'll see everybody trying. first verbally, secondly militarily. we should look at it with concern but not be impressed. we should push for it because we know the syrian people and basically everyone now realize that this cannot go on. >> what about saudi arabia and its feud with iran? i mean, obviously they back different sides in syria. how complicating is that for a political process? >> it is complicating, but one good news, at least, i went both to saudi arabia and tehran just when this discussion, the tensions took up. and i got from both of them, a guarantee, publicly that at
least in syria, they won't be affected. it will play tension elsewhere. they, too, probably realize that the time has come for at least trying to find a political solution. it will be a compromise. >> if russia and iran are giving military support to one side, the u.s. is not helping enough to the side that they say they're supporting and russia is now busy blowing them out of the water now anyway, the russia approved opposition. so what can be done in that regard? >> first of all, i must say the americans, and particularly through john kerry have shown that perhaps they're not as involved militarily. that's a decision they should take in their own country, but they're heavily involved politically. can you imagine iran and saudi arabia, russia and america sitting around the table and being talking about how to end
this war? i think they're putting a lot of political capital in it, and probably the russians are serious because they don't want to end up in a long endless conflict in syria. they, too, want a solution. >> stephen, u.n. special envoy on this situation. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. >> and when we come back, we'll have more from here where power is at the most picture-esque. my interview with china's john gin. imagine a world with the most self-made female billionaires. that's next. tuesday. one second it's there. then, woosh, it's gone. i swear i saw it swallow seven people. seven. i just wish one of those people could have been mrs. johnson.

why, and how are yo trying to fix that? >> we grew up in socialist china where everything was provided by the state. so the idea of a philanthropy private do nation is unheard of. then i look at myself, with being a major, major recipient and benefitted so much from education, at somebody's generosity, and i thought something close to my heart is to do with education. >> what do you make of the chinese economy, the slow down affecting the world. i'm sure everyone here is talking about that? >> we're definitely in a much slower growth period. companies are adjusting. ourself, for the 20 years as the developer, all you needed to do is to buy a piece of land and build, and most people successful that way. but that has very much coming to the tail end. >> and that is it for our program tonight. remember, you can now always listen to our pod casts, see us
