tv   Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans  CNN  May 5, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PDT

2:00 am
she can't put it away. i thought i would be out there and she would be campaigning against me. i'll be campaigning against her. >> the general election campaign from your perspective starts today. >> essentially it started. yeah. it started today. >> trump also tells wolf blitzer he is now looking at potential running mates. jim acosta has more. >> reporter: with ted cruz and john kasich out of the race, trump sources say the presumptive nominee will build a 50-state general election campaign that will begin forces with the rnc. advisers of trump say names are surfacing as early favorites and the search for a running mate. trump wants a politician to help balance out the gop ticket. >> i would want somebody to help me from a legislative standpoint. getting things passed through senate and congress and to me that's why i think probably in terms of vice president, i will go the political route.
2:01 am
i don't need the business route. >> you think some of your former republican rivals could be on the list? >> could be. >> and even things who said nasty things about you? >> you know, i feel differently about that. when somebody says nasty, i never like them quite the same. >> reporter: a trump source tells cnn that rob port man in and susana martinez and nikki haley are all on his short list. his daughter ivanka is said to offer input in the process. all three of the potential running mates tell cnn they are not interested. portman through a spokesman said he would not be a vice president. haley offered a statement that says, i'm flattered to be mentioned. my plate is full. i'm not interested in serving as vice president. other names will come up and trump told cnn's wolf blitzer he would like to vet john kasich. john and christine.
2:02 am
>> thanks, jim. on the democratic side, hillary clinton and bernie sanders on the campaign trail today. clinton in california. she is trying to turn her attention to the general election and donald trump, but sanders is making that complicated. vowing to stay in the race until the convention. a move clinton has no quarrel with. >> i know there are still contests ahead. i respect bernie sanders if whatever choice he makes. i have empathy. i ran to the very end in 2008. >> you know what it feels like. >> i won 9 of the last 12 contests. people forget that. i won indiana. i won west virginia. i won a lot of states, but i couldn't close the gap in pledged delegates. the gap between me and senator sanders is far wider than it was between me and senator obama. >> we have jeff zeleny with more
2:03 am
on clinton's two-front battle. >> reporter: john and christine, hillary clinton is campaigning in california. the california primary on june 7th will be one of the last contests in the long democratic fight. the campaign is suddenly making a hard turn to the general election. she is sharpening her battle plan for trump and intentionally choosing two words to describe him. she said the two words again and again when she sat down yesterday with anderson cooper. >> i don't think we can take a risk on a loose cannon like donald trump running our country. donald trump said it is okay for other countries to get nuclear weapons. i think that is dangerous. he has said wages are too high. i think we need to have a raise for the american people. raise the minimum wage. get wages going up. when he says women should be punished for having abortions, that is just beyond anything
2:04 am
that i could imagine. i think most women can imagine. >> he did walk that back. >> he's a loose cannon. >> reporter: as she uses the words loose cannon, he is calling her crooked hillary. he starts with advantages. leading trump by 13 points in a new cnn/orc poll. with all of the republicans out of the race here, sanders is the third wheel. he says he is staying in through california and the convention. >> thank you, jeff. joining us to discuss more of what's going on this morning. wall street journal correspondent colleen mccain nelson. good morning. we have news from overnight. ben sasse, the republican senator, which votes next tuesday, put out this big long letter on facebook where he is calling for a third party candidate. sasse has been never trump for a long time. he says there needs to be someone extra to jump in the race. i believe most americans can be
2:05 am
for limited government again if they have a candidate to focus on a small number of important urgent things to try to bring people together instead of driving us apart. i think there is room and appetite for such a candidate. he went on with #wecandobetter. give us more choices. interesting to see. a sitting republican senator calling for a third party candidate. interesting. >> it is fascinating. i guess the big unanswered question is who is that third party candidate? who is he talking about? i mean, that's the problem with never trump from the beginning. they have always said never trump. anyone but trump. they have never been able to coalesce around one person. at this point of a third party candidate, that is a tough proposition to launch a campaign to get on ballots in every state to raise money. we'll see what happens.
2:06 am
that's a very steep hill to climb when we are already in may. >> meanwhile, two former presidents, bush, will not be participating in the general election. they will sit it out. what does that tell you about the apathy among many republicans for their candidate? >> right. this is what every republican is going to wrestle with. do you go along and support donald trump? do you do what the bush family is doing and not be involved. or do you say i will oppose my party's nominee? you are seeing a range of response from different folks. the former presidents are taking a hands off approach. you are seeing other republicans come out and actually say i'm with hillary clinton, which is
2:07 am
extraordinary. we'll see how many more republicans do that. it's pretty unusual on the day that the nominee emerges to have republicans defecting and saying i'm actually going to support a democrat. >> now, donald trump, he won the republican primaries. by a fair amount. he finished the race before hillary clinton did on the democratic side. he is now turning focus to the general election. he did a sit down interview with wolf blitzer. it was interesting to see. already, the first day after he clinches the nomination, he seems to be shifting on issues. listen to what he told wolf about the minimum wage. >> hillary clinton is ready to go to $12. >> she has done that -- >> what would you recommend? >> i'm looking at it. i'm open to doing something with it because i don't li't like it.
2:08 am
i'm open to bringing jobs back. >> he said wages were too high in america. >> i was fascinated to hear that. it did not take him long for him to shift. he previously said wages were too high. he said he didn't want to change the minimum wage. now one day into the general election, he is saying he is willing to look at it. this is a challenge for hillary clinton. you are not sure where he will come down on an issue any given day. he has shown a willingness to change his positions. if you are hillary clinton, it is a strange race to run. it is not conventional right versus left race. he is all over the map. he is difficult. it didn't seem to bother republican primary voters who supported him.
2:09 am
clearly it is a different group of folks in the general election. this is the first of what i think will be a number of shifts from donald trump. >> he says he will bring a lot of jobs back. the minimum wage argument is the secondary argument. he will bring good paying jobs back so we don't talk about the minimum wage for other jobs. let's talk about hillary clinton. she sat down with anderson last night. she said she is ready for attacks from donald trump. >> he's made references to your marriage, to your husband. are you prepared? >> he's not the first one, anderson. i cannot say this often enough. if he wants to go back to the playbook of the 1990s. if he wants to follow in the footsteps of those who have tried to knock me down and take me out of the political arenare i'm happy for him to do that. >> trump said he is just getting
2:10 am
started on attacks on hillary clinton. she has been attacked before. she is right on that. she is fighting a primary battle. donald trump has a luxury of focusing on her now. >> right. it was funny to see donald trump point that out. he said i expected my race to go longer and her race to be shorter. i think that's what most people expected. everyone braced for the long fight to the convention. now all of a sudden, donald trump has cleared the republican field. he is focus his fire on hillary clinton. hillary clinton is fighting the battle on two fronts. fighting off bernie sanders. bernie sanders not going to back down or go easy on her although he has a narrow path. she has to answer attacks from the right and left at this point which is a tricky thing to do. >> it really is. fascinating to see the next days and weeks. the exact opposite of what everyone including both campaigns thought would happen.
2:11 am
donald trump has one month in the clear. colleen mccain nelson, thank you. time for an early start on your money. stock futures higher. you know, stocks fell yesterday. the higher move this morning for oil which is up 3% right now. stocks in europe and asia are mixed. takata air bag recall is increasing. double the number of the u.s. recalls to 69 million. that means 20% of all cars on the nation's roads have an air bag that pose a risk to drivers. only 8 million have been repaired. takata will not have enough parts to fix all of them until 2019. the air bag inflaters can malfunction that sends debris flying at drivers. these faulty air bags have been tied to ten deaths in the u.s.
2:12 am
takata will offer its best efforts to fix that problem. new details emerging this morning about the final days of prince's life. we are learning new things and hearing from new people about an alleged battle with addiction. (avo) i've always been a dog person. my name is barbara and i make dog chow natural in davenport, iowa. now that i work there and see all of the care and the ingredients that go into it. i value the food even more. i feed yoshi dog chow natural because there's no artificial colors, preservatives and it's made with real chicken. he's got so much energy. his coat is so shiny. and he just seems over all happier. i'm so proud to make dog chow natural in davenport, iowa. i am a lot of things. i am her best friend.
2:13 am
i am her ally. so i asked about adding once-daily namenda xr to her current treatment for moderate to severe alzheimer's. it works differently. when added to another alzheimer's treatment, it may improve overall function and cognition. and may slow the worsening of symptoms for a while. vo: namenda xr doesn't change how the disease progresses. it shouldn't be taken by anyone allergic to memantine, or who's had a bad reaction to namenda xr or its ingredients. before starting treatment, tell their doctor if they have, or ever had, a seizure disorder, difficulty passing urine, liver, kidney or bladder problems, and about medications they're taking. certain medications, changes in diet, or medical conditions may affect the amount of namenda xr in the body and may increase side effects. the most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, and dizziness. all my life, she's been there for me. now i am giving back. ask their doctor about once-daily namenda xr and learn about a free trial offer at namendaxr.com. sir, can you hear me? two, three. just hold the bag. we need a portable x-ray, please!

donald trump officially the only republican left in the race for president. beginning his vp search now and speaking with cnn. and hillary clinton one-on-one with cnn about taking on donald trump and why the fact that bernie sanders is still in the race doesn't bother her. welcome back to "early start." i'm john berman. >> i'm christine romans. it is 30 minutes past the hour. donald trump cleared the field. presumptive republican nominee. he is on the campaign trail in west virginia which votes next tuesday. trump officially the last man standing after ohio governor john kasich dropped out 24 hours after ted cruz did the same. trump tells cnn he has his eyes firmly fixed on november.
2:31 am
>> do you think the general election campaign has already started? you versus hillary clinton? for all practical purposes sanders sinbernie sanders is ou? >> what has happened is a flip. i thought i would be going longer and she would be going shorter. she can't put it away. that's like a football team that can't put it over the line. she can't put it away. i thought i would be out there and she would be campaigning against me. i'll be campaigning against her while she's campaigning. >> it essentially started today. >> trump tells wolf he is now starting to look at potential running mates. jim acosta has more. >> reporter: john and christine, with ted cruz and john kasich out of the race, trump sources say the presumptive gop nominee will focus on a 50-state staff to begin forces with the rnc. advisers say names are surfacing as early favorites in the search

for running mate. trump wants a politician as vice president to help balance out the gop ticket. >> i want somebody to help me get things legislatively through congress and senate. i will go the political route. i don't need the business route. >> you think some of your former rivals will be on the vetting list? >> could be. >> even people who said nasty things about you. >> you know, i feel differently. when somebody says nasty, i never like them quite the same. >> reporter: a trump source says ohio senator rob portman and susana martinez and nikki haley are all on the short list. ivanka is said to be interested in dealing with the issue. a spokesperson said that portman
2:33 am
is not interested. and haley says i'm proud to be mentioned, but my plate is full and not interested in serving as vice president. other names will come up and trump told cnn's wolf blitzer he would like to vet john kasich. john and christine. >> jim, thanks so much. on the democratic side, hillary clinton and bernie sanders on the campaign trail today. hillary clinton in california. with the republcan fight settled, she is trying to turn her full attention to the general election and donald trump, but bernie sanders is making that comply he indica co. it is a move that hillary clinton has no quarrel with. >> i know there are contests ahead. i respect sanders in whatever choices he makes. i have empathy. i ran to the very end in 2008. i won 9 of the last 12 contests. people forget that.
2:34 am
i won indiana. i won west virginia. i won a lot of states. but i could not close the gap in pledged delegates. the gap between me and senator sanders is far wider than it was between me and senator obama. >> we have jeff zeleny with more on hillary clinton's two-front battle. >> reporter: john and christine, hillary clinton campaigning today in california. a reminder her primary fight with bernie sanders is still on. the california primary on june 7th will be one of the last contests in the long democratic fight. the campaign is suddenly making a hard turn to the general election. she is sharpening her battle plan for donald trump and intentionally choosing two words to describe him. she said those two words again when she sat down yesterday with anderson cooper. >> we can't take a risk on a
2:35 am
loose cannon like trump running our country. trump has said it is okay for other countries to get nuclear weapons. he said wages are too high. we need to have a raise for the american people. raise the minimum wage. get wages going up. when he says women should be punished for having abortions, that is beyond anything that i can imagine. i think most women can imagine. >> i did walk that back. >> well, he's a loose cannon. >> reporter: so as she uses the words loose cannon and risky, he is calling her crooked hillary. she starts with advantages leading trump by 13 points in the cnn/orc poll. with all of the republicans out of the race, sanders is truly the third wheel here. he says he is staying in through california and the convention. john and christine. >> jeff, thank you. let's put more perspective on this race for president. wall street journal white house
2:36 am
correspondent colleen mccain nelson. colle colleen, republicans have a fork in the road, really. they have to decide if they will sit it out and say i don't support my nominee or support him or find some third way. we heard from mitch mcconnell. he gave a statement where he talked about how he would rally behind -- let's read it. he is committed to supporting the nominee chosen by republican voters and donald trump on the verge of clinching that nomination. he has an obligation to unite the party around our goals. he supports him, but he is almost telling him, you have work to do. >> right. that's exactly right. you see a lot of republicans coming out and now saying they will support donald trump. obviously reince priebus, the head of the republican party, said it is time to unite around donald trump. he is the nominee. not everyone is falling in line.
2:37 am
as you know, republicans are facing a range of choices. you see some republicans saying i'm going to stay out of it. you see former president bush saying they will not be involved. you see other republicans going further and saying not only will they not support donald trump, but they will support hillary clinton. a pretty remarkable thing to hear from republicans on day one of donald trump's general election campaign. yesterday, hillary clinton's campaign was quick to put out a list of republicans who have already said they are going to support her. it was a pretty long list. obviously the hillary clinton team is working hard to launch republicans for hillary right out of the gate. >> interesting, overnight. republican senator ben sasse says he is not for trump and not for hillary.
2:38 am
he says i believe most americans can be for limited government again if they were given a candidate to focus on a small number of urgent things to drive us together instead of drive us apart. i think there is room and appetite for a candidate. we can do better. give us more choices. in the same letter, he indicates he is not going to be the candidate. it is interesting to see a republican senator actively aggressively pushing for a third party candidate. >> that's right. it is highly unusual. he has been on the leading edge of this if you look back to february. he came back then and said if the choice boils down to trump or clinton, i'll be for a third candidate. he is now following through with it. as you know, he laid out specific criteria for the third party he is looking for saying he wants someone not a career politician. he thinks it should be someone
2:39 am
willing to serve one term. the unanswered question is who is that candidate and willing to do it? how do you launch a campaign at this late date from a standing start? >> colleen, a moment yesterday when wolf was interviewing trump and pressing him on the minimum wage. >> hillary clinton says she is ready to go to $12. bernie sanders says 15. >> she is being -- i'm looking at it. >> you are open to raising the wage? >> i'm open to doing something with it because i don't like it. what i hope to do with it is bring our jobs back. >> in the republican debates, he said wages are too high. are we seeing a general election candidate who is now out testing his policieies to start changin things? >> it didn't take long. this was a reversal. he had been asked this question multiple times in the primary season.
2:40 am
he said wages were too high. he said he was unwilling to change the minimum wage. it needed to stay where it was. this was a different answer on day one of the general election campaign. i think you will see more of that from donald trump. he has diverged from the issues. this is a dilemma for hillary clinton. it is hard to know how to run against a candidate like this. it is not your standard left/right battle. hillary clinton is not sure where trump is going to be on any issue. the question for voters, do they care that he changed position the issues and how are republican voters going to respond to a candidate who is not lining up with republican positions? >> look, this is what trump supporters say. he may be losing some of the republicans who say they are never trump, but as many as he loses, he will pick up democrats who want back a republican
2:41 am
candidate like donald trump. it will be interesting to see how it plays out. colleen, thank you. >> nice to see you. >> thank you. we have new information about the final days of prince. what we're learning about his battle with addiction. new details next.
