tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN April 11, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PDT
good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm michelle kosinski. >> i'm john berman. it is monday, april 11th. the period of calm appears to be over after days of no public events and tepid action on the twitter act. donald trump back with aims at the republican party and delegate system. trump trying to challenge the delegates haul that cruz won over the weekend. trump complained over the delegates picked at the convention instead of a primary or caucus. how is it that the people of the state of colorado never got to vote at the primary? trump's new delegate manager charges the cruz campaign won with gustapo tactics. >> threatening a fair game? >> not my style. not trump's style.
>> what can you? >> it is ted cruz's style. >> you think he is threatening delegates. >> you go to the conventions and you see the gustapo tactics. >> gustapo tactics? that's a strong word. >> we will file protests. reality is they are not playing by the rules. >> cruz campaign is lashing back saying cruz won colorado by putting in the hard work to build a superior organization. let's get the latest from chris frates in rochester. >> reporter: john and michelle, after a three-day break, donald trump back on the campaign trail in new york. new york is crucial to donald trump. a battle ground here april 19th with 95 delegates at stake. donald trump has a shot at winner take all. that's crucial particularly as ted cruz has been on a bit of a winning streak. donald trump starting to call into question those delegate
wins by ted cruz. >> we've got a corrupt system. it's not right. we're supposed to be a democracy. we're supposed to be -- we're supposed to be, you vote and the vote means something. >> i want to tell you, it's a corrupt deal going on in this country. it's not good. it's not good. it's not fair and it's not fair to you people. they're taking your vote away. they're disenfranchising people. politicians don't want to do it. their lo the lobbyists are saying they don't want to do it. we have to change the system. >> reporter: donald trump doing very well here in new york. still leading in the polls. on sunday, the fox poll came out at 54% support. ted cruz with 15% support. cruz lagging kasich in the state. donald trump using ted cruz's
words against him. cruz criticizing new york values. trump jumping on that saying cruz was insulting new yorkers. cruz said he was insulting the liberal new york class. not voters. if you look forward here, ted cruz is doing well in the delegates hunt. four consecutive wins. wisconsin and colorado. new york is the next big battle ground. could be a winner take all. we should continue to hear donald trump throughout the week here in new york. john and michelle. >> thanks, chris. joining us to break down the battle for delegates. managing editor steven sloan. i don't know where to begin. what do you think about the trump allegations that the voting system is unfair? the people out there didn't really get their voices heard. what do you make of that? >> i think what you are seeing is a transition in the trump campaign thinking they have been
relying on the big primary wins. big primary nights we stay up late for and watch results come in. that is how they racked up delegates. if see them if they want to get to the 1,237 number before the convention, the number they need to win the nomination, they have to go through the intricate processes in colorado with the convention. it is something that seems like they were not prepared for at the beginning of the process. >> it is clear they were not prepared. they are getting their clock cleaned. let's switch to the democrats, steven. the battle is eight days until the democratic primary and republican primary here in new york. hillary clinton and bernie sanders going toe-to-toe for votes here. now bernie sanders is shifting the focus. for a while, he was saying i don't know. he won't answer if hillary clinton was qualified. she was doing the same. now sanders raising new
questions. let's listen. >> she may have the experience to be president of the united states. no one can argue that. in terms of judgment, something is clearly lacking. >> steven, i have been surprised by both candidates. they let this go on day and day and we have been asking them all on the campaign staff. do you think hillary clinton is qualified. do you think bernie sanders is qualified. they keep fanning the flames. now sanders questioning secretary clinton's judgment. what's going on? >> i think he created the firestorm last week by saying they wasn't qualified. it didn't necessarily work out to sanders' favor. he is trying to keep this au argument alive. that may resonate with his base. people worried about her vote on the iraq war and use of private e-mail server when she was secretary of state. i think he is trying to get at
that without raising qualifications. >> you know, for months, two months now, we have been hearing from each of the democratic campaigns saying they are going to go harder against the opponent. obviously we are seeing that now. it has become evident. do you see this revving up more? will this rival some of the republicans in their rhetoric and attacks on each other? >> i don't know it will go to that level, but it will intensify for sure. we have another week before the new york primary as you both know politics in new york is rough and tumble with the tabloid culture and cnn debate on wednesday night. i don't think they will treat each other with kid gloves. >> you never know. they go after each other hard for days and get on the debate stage and they are friends. another question we see come up thursday night is the question about hillary clinton's e-mails
and server. what is interesting, president obama did an interview with fox news. his first interview with fox news in a long time. >> first of the administration, i believe. >> he was asked what he thought about the e-mails and the investigation. listen. >> i continue to believe that she has not jeopardized america's national security. what i also said is that, and she acknowledged that there's a carelessness in terms of managing e-mails that she has owned. she recognizes. i also think it is important to keep this in perspective. this is somebody who served her country for four years as secretary of state and did an outstanding job. >> scale of 1 to 10, how full throated was that defense? seemed about as far as a sitting president could go. >> it is as far as he could go
especially when there is not a democratic nominee. a race going on that is so intense on the democratic side and he can't quite take a side yet. he is threading the needle and acknowledging that maybe it wasn't the best decision on her part, but she didn't break laws. >> steven, thank you so much. >> big week for cnn. it all begins tonight at 9:00 p.m. with a twist this time. the republican presidential candidates and families answering voter questions. tonight we have john kasich and wife karen and twin daughters. i wonder which questions. tomorrow night, donald trump and his family. wednesday night is ted and heidi cruz. then on thursday night, the democratic presidential debate. live at 9:00 p.m. from brooklyn. hillary clinton and bernie sanders face-to-face for the
last time before the crucial new york primary. again, only on cnn. >> big week. let's look at your money with alison kosik. >> good morning. i'm watching markets with a turn around from earlier losses. asian markets are lower. european markets higher. u.s. futures are following their lead. on friday, oil prices soared more than 6%. that wasn't enough for wall street. the dow gained 35 points. s&p 500 and nasdaq closing slightly higher. all three ending the week down more than 1%. so what do you think? could a yahoo! daily mail merger be in the works? the company that owns the british tabloid is one of 30 parties interested in yahoo!. any one of the groups could acquire all of yahoo! or parts of the company. the daily mail tells cnn money that discussions are in the very early stages. actually verizon seems to be a

welcome back to "early start." i'm john berman. >> i'm michelle kosinski. donald trump's moment of zen is over after days of no public events, the bluster is back. aimed at the delegate system in the republican party. trump is challenging the delegate haul that ted cruz won in colorado. he complained about the picking of the delegates at convention instead of primary or caucus. trump said how is it possible the people of the great state of colorado never got to vote in the primary? great anger. trump's convention manager charges the cruz campaign won delegates with quote gustapo tactics. >> is threatening a fair game? >> not my style. not trump's style. it is ted cruz's style. and that's going to wear thin. >> you think he is threatening
delegates? >> you go to the county conventions and see the gustapo tactics. >> that's a strong word. >> we will file several protests because reality is they are not playing by the rules. >> when you think you heard every word during the campaign. cruz campaign is lashing back saying cruz won colorado by putting in what the campaign calls the hard work for a superior organization. let's bring in chris frates with the trump campaign in new york. >> reporter: john and michelle, after a three-day break, trump back on the trail here in new york. new york crucial to donald trump. a battle ground here april 19th with 95 delegates at stake. donald trump has a shot at winner take all. that's crucial particularly as ted cruz has been on a bit of a winning streak. in fact, donald trump starting to call into question those delegate wins by ted cruz.
>> we've got a corrupt system. it's not right. we're supposed to be a democracy. we're supposed to be -- we're supposed to be you vote and the vote means something. >> i want to tell you. it's a corrupt deal going on. it's not good. it's not fair. it's not fair to you people. they're taking your vote away. they are disenfranchising people. politicians don't want to do it. they can't do it because their lobbyists are saying we won't let you do it. we have to change the system. it has to change fast. >> reporter: donald trump doing very well here in new york. still leading in the polls. on sunday, the fox poll came out showed he had 54% support. ted cruz with 15% support. cruz lagging john kasich here in the state. donald trump using ted cruz's words against him. you may remember ted cruz criticizing new york values.
trump jumping on that. ted cruz firing back saying he was insulting the liberal political new york class. not new york voters. if you look forward. ted cruz doing very well in the delegate hunt. in fact, four consecutive wins. big wins in wisconsin and colorado. new york is the next battle ground. we should continue to hear donald trump throughout the week here in new york. john and michelle. >> chris frates with mick jagger in rochester, new york. joining us to break all this down is steven sloan. good to be with us this morning. it is interesting to hear donald trump on the stump. he wasn't just complaining on twitter about the delegate race. he seemed to be doing it during his speech as well. a comparison to bernie sanders. listen to what he said. >> so i watch bernie. he wins, he wins.
he keeps winning. then i see he has no chance. why doesn't he have a chance? because the system is corrupt. it's worse on the republican side. >> the system is corrupt. by that he means the rules. the rules of the delegate hunt there. do you think this is an effective strategy? why is the trump campaign doing this going forward? complaining about the rules of the game? >> they are complaining about the shift in the campaign. the big primary nights are not the only way to get to the nomination. we stayed up late watching results. there is a most intricate process at play with conventions in colorado. i think the trump campaign wasn't prepared for that. we are seeing that shift right now. he is paradoxically in a similar situation to bernie sanders. he compares himself with the
insurgent campaigns that have fueled them. they are confronting the rules of the party that make it hard to capture the nomination. >> good reason to slug it out over every delegate. let's look at the delegate counts. on the republican side, trump is ahead significantly. hundreds. on the democratic side, hillary clinton still ahead by hundreds. tell us what is the significance of the new york primary coming up? new york has made headlines in the race. everything from new york values to whether hillary clinton knows how to use the turnstiles properly. tell us what new york means to the races for now. >> it is crucial for both sides. this is all we will talk about for the next week. for republicans, donald trump wins with more than 50% as that poll that you just put up a while ago suggests.
that will be a big win for him. he will take all of the state's delegates. that will be a big boost for him. on the democratic side, clinton and sanders have been fighting it out for the past week or so in new york. clinton can come ahead with a win, that will put to rest some of the concerns about her campaign. she is obviously lost eight of the last nine contests. she would like to pick up a win. >> bernie sanders not taking it lying down. he is fighting hard. last week with questions of is hillary clinton qualified to be president. now talking about her judgment. >> she may have the experience to be president of the united states. no one can argue that. in terms of judgment, something is clearly lacking. >> why is the sanders campaign pushing this narrative? >> i think they think it will appeal to their base and keep the questions about some of her past, the vote for the iraq war
and use of a private e-mail server as secretary of state. keep those alive without going as far as he did last week without saying she's not qualified for the white house. >> we heard something else interesting over the weekend. president obama did the interview with fox's chris wallace. rarely do we hear the white house talk about failures. >> almost never. >> here we heard president obama talk about what he thought his biggest failure was. listen. >> probably failing to plan for the day after what i think was the right thing to do in libya. >> so that has figured in heavily into the race, too, who is running most on or against president obama's record. what to do next.
foreign policy is huge. what do you think of what president obama said and will the candidates jump on that? >> i think you see him grappling with his legacy a little bit. he talked about libya before, but those were frank comments about what he terms his biggest failure. you know, it will be interesting to see if that eases some of the pressure that is on hillary clinton on that issue. republicans have raised it quite a bit. maybe if obama owns that more, that could take the pressure off clinton. >> thanks, steven. president obama said his biggest regret during president was not being able to better unite people and get past the rankor in politicians. thank you. joining us now is alison kosik
for a look at your money. >> good morning. we are seeing markets turn around. asian markets closed lower. european markets are higher. u.s. stock futures are higher as well. on friday, oil prices soared more than 6%. that wasn't enough for wall street to rally. the dow gained 35 points. the s&p and nasdaq closed higher. all three of the indices closed 1% higher. president obama and janet yellen will meet today and talk about executive compensation for top executives and whether the big banks need to do more. what is interesting is presidents look like they are removed and not influencing policies of the independent central bank. the last meeting face-to-face with yellen and obama was two
years ago. >> so many questions. >> no press allowed. >> we will see what we're told about it. thanks. we have new information in the investigation of the brussels bombings. raids over the weekend leading to the arrest of two more suspect. what investigators have learned next. ♪ i love to take pictures that engage people. and to connect us with the wonderment of nature. the detail on this surface book is amazing. with the tiger image, the saliva coming off and you got this turning.
