19% say they were poor. i like this survey. it is a shoutout to the strict parents who say do your homework and get your education. 80% said they had firm discipline in their life. not a bad thing. "early start" continues right now. >> the race for president getting messing. bernie sanders with a new warning about what could happen at the democratic convention as donald trump and hillary clinton release stinging attacks. welcome to "early start." i'm alison kosik. >> i'm george howell. tuesday, may 24th. it is 5:00 a.m. on the east coast. bernie sanders vowing to stay in the race even if it means a messy democratic convention. sanders defiance comes as hillary clinton looks past the challenger and toward the general election and pulling out of the debate in california which was planned for may. sanders blasting clinton's
decision at a rally in santa monica. cnn's sunlen serfaty was there. >> reporter: george and alison, hillary clinton is increasing urgency a bit and calling for democrats to unite before the general election. bernie sanders is digging in more. renewing his promise to take his fight to the convention floor. in an interview with the ap, he was asked about the convention to get messy. he replied so what. democracy is messy. he will condemn any and all forms of violence. as he barnstorms the state of california, he seems to be taunting hillary clinton a bit. saying he believes she is getting nervous at his chances going forward. in the meantime, the clinton campaign announced they will not participate in the debate ahead of california in two weeks. this is something that he brought up here at his rally in santa monica. >> i was disturbed, but not
surprised to hear a few hours ago that secretary clinton has backed out of the debate. i think it is a little bit insulting to the people of california. our largest state. that she is not prepared to have a discussion with me about how she will help the californians address the major crises that we face. >> reporter: the clinton campaign clearly turning focus on the general election. again saying they believe their time right now is being better spent campaigning and talking to voters and prepare for the general fight ahead. george and alison. >> thank you, sunlen serfaty. the war between hillary clinton and donald trump intensifying as trump delivers a low blow releasing an instagram ad on monday with the voices of two women who once accused bill clinton of sexual assault. hillary clinton battling back with a new ad of her own that
uses donald trump's own words against him. >> i sort of hope that happens because then people like me would go in and buy. if there is a bubble burst as they call it, you know, you could make a lot of money. >> the attacks just keep coming. to break all this down, let's have time for perspective. >> let's bring in political reporter eugene scott in the washington bureau. thanks for waking up with us. >> thanks for having me. >> we are seeing hillary clinton and donald trump getting ready for the general election. already getting down and dirty with what you see with the attack ad with hillary clinton. we are hearing about trump's instagram post. you know it is pretty low and dirty.
donald trump saying by posting this, saying this is relevant because of the way hillary clinton handled bill clinton's affairs. sort of compounding them with what trump said attacking the women involved. you have hillary clinton going below the belt there where it hurts trump the most with money. >> this is what is expected. this is what was expected. we all had warnings that the race would go here if it was between these two candidates. no one is really surprised. what is interesting is to see how voters respond to it. these issues are not new. we have seen these candidates elude to the issues previously in this race. we are not going to see them back away from them. if anything, we will see more. it is just not surprising. especially considering the issues that trump is having with women. he wants to put a dent in clinton's credibility. whether or not it will work
given his past situations with women and misygny. >> that is a good point you make. donald trump has his own infidelities to worry about. >> those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. you have to see if hillary clinton will seize on that. at this point, not responding to the personal attacks. let's talk about how hillary clinton is focusing on donald trump. saying he is dangerous. listen to this statement. this is one of her latest attacks. >> trump economics is a recipe for lower wages, fewer jobs, more debt. he could bankrupt america like he's bankrupted his companies. i mean ask yourself how can anybody lose money running a
casino, really? >> how will that work? we talk about the economy. hillary clinton focusing on the economy. focusing on the fact he is a businessman. that is something trump trumpets. her question is was he that good of a businessman? >> it is certainly fair ground. donald trump runs on his business success. that is where he is most successful. he hasn't been without flaw. he has repeated bankruptcies. professionally at least. we know he makes some of his products and his own clothing line overseas despite promising to ship jobs back here. there are multiple concerns people would like him to address and see if he will be better for the economy as he professes to be. >> you know, we're seeing more and more polls come out. one about the economy. who do you trust more to handle the economy. 47% for clinton. 46% for trump. then the tax return issue coming back again and again as well.
you are seeing these issues come back. are they having an impact on the way americans feel about the candidates? i'm talking about the issues that keep on resonating. >> as you see, according to the polls, it depends on which americans you are speaking with. many will support donald trump whether or not he will release the tax returns. continuing to hound on them doesn't help hillary clinton with people that she is trying to get to support her. they don't help with the people that are trying to support donald trump. she has to decide where it is she wants to spend most of her time with this issue. >> we talked about one poll yesterday showing that trump and clinton are in a dead heat. how much can we really rely on these polls so early? we are still many points out. you look at 2008.
these polls are just that. they are polls. >> they change like the weather. >> do we have a read on what americans are thinking? is there a way to have your finger on the pulse of what americans will do come november? >> no, what these polls tell us is where americans are in the last week of may. we will see more ads released similar to what we have already seen. they can be more intense or worse. we could see significant changes in the direction of the election that benefit or hurt both candidates. >> eugene, i also want to talk about bernie sanders and hillary clinton. two things. first of all, hillary clinton backing out of the debate. bernie sanders really making hay about that. when it comes to the convention, it could be messy. what is your thought there? >> i think the one thing that is important to clarify while he said it could be messy.
he made it clear he is not condoning or supporting violence. how people define messy is really important. no one is surprised. this campaign hasn't been clean and orderly. so we expect bernie sanders and his supporters to push for the values and interests they articulated through the campaign and put those on the table and keep them at the forefront. >> i like that "snl" skit where sanders at the bar and hillary clinton is like hey. >> that was funny. >> eugene, thank you for coming on this morning. >> thank you. time for an early start on your money. corporate america is hoarding cash and most in accounts overseas. u.s. companies held $1.6 trillion last year. that is more than double the stockpile in 2007 before the rate recession. this is according to moody's. tech companies are leading the way. names we know. apple, microsoft, google, cisco
and oracle. they hold 30% or $504 billion. financial companies were not included in the survey. 72% of the cash pile is held over seas. multinational companies argue the american 40% tax rate makes bringing the money back too expensive. this is a campaign issue. the only way we will see a change in the tax code is through congress. that's been battled for years and years. no matter what the candidates say, the work will have to come from congress. >> donald trump keeps beating the drum. >> he is able to change it single handedly. good luck. breaking news. minutes ago, president obama arriving in ho chi minh city while trying to mend old wounds. we are live there next.

in ho chi minh city. the president just finished a speech in the capitol of vietnam, hanoi. the message is stronger trade ties in the far east. at the same time, he tried to heal old wounds that divided the u.s. and vietnam for decades. cnn's alexandra field is following it for us in ho chi minh city. he focused on economics and human rights. >> reporter: he did. that's been a focus of the trip. you have a lot of human rights groups scrutinizing every move here. they have been very vocal about vietnam's human rights record and jailing of dissidents and stalled political reforms. that is what the president addressed. he had a crowd of 2,000 people to come see him in hanoi. these were business officials and government officials and
students. he talked about universal values. he promoted human rights. he talked about freedom of expression and freedom of assembly as being shared values with vietnam and the u.s. he wanted to foster that and hit on that. he talked about the freedom of thought. that fuels innovation and leads to job creation and boosts the economy. the trip is about shoring up economics and cooperation in terms of security. it has a lot to do with the evolution of vietnam and the u.s.'s relationship as we look to the future. the president took the opportunity to reflect on the past and the progress that's been made between the two countries during the post-war era to heal the relationship. listen to what he said. >> at a time when many conflicts seem as if they will never end, we have shown that hearts can change and a different future is possible when we refuse to be
prisoners of the past. we've shown how peace can be better than war. >> reporter: president obama has now arrived in ho chi minh city after leaving hanoi. he will tour the pagoda this afternoon. he will be going on to visit an incubator and having another address. that ties into some of the themes we heard him talk about this morning with fostering job growth and continued economic development. >> thank you, alexandra field. the tsa's top intel chief is out. the white house oversight committee announced that kelly hogan has been replaced. he faced congressional committee hearing last month with three testifying he had no experience and he received a $90,000 bonus and the lines at airports were

challenger and straight to donald trump as she pulls out of a debate in california planned for may. sanders blasting clinton's decision at the rally in santa monica. cnn's sunlen serfaty was there. >> reporter: hillary clinton is increasing urgency a bit and calling for a united democratic party, but bernie sanders is promising to take his fight to the convention floor. in the interview with the ap, he was asked about the potential for the philadelphia convention to get messy. he replied so what. democracy is messy. he will quote condemn any and all forms of violence. as he barnstorms the state of california, he seems to be taunting hillary clinton a bit. saying he believes she is getting nervous at his chances going forward. the clinton campaign will not participate in the debate in
california before the primary. this is something he brought up at the rally in santa monica. >> i was disturbed, but not surprised to hear a few hours ago that secretary clinton has backed out of the debate. i think it is a little bit insulting to the people of california. our largest state. that she is not prepared to have a discussion with me about how she will help the californians address the major crises that we face. >> reporter: and the clinton campaign clearly turning focus to the general election. again, saying they believe their time right now is better spent campaigning and talking to voters and preparing for the general fight ahead. george. >> sunlen serfaty, thank you. the war between donald trump and hillary clinton intensifyinnten. donald trump released an ad on
monday with the voices of two women accused bill clinton of sexual assault. hillary clinton fought back with an ad of her own. listen. >> i sort of hope that happens because then people like me would go in and buy. if there is a bubble burst, as they call it, you know, you can make a lot of money. >> so much to talk about. let's break down the developments in the race for president. >> let's bring in political reporter eugene scott live in the washington bureau. you heard that ad. donald trump's words. will we see more of that from hillary clinton? also, this instagram ad. a low blow from donald trump. again, the voices of two women who accuse bill clinton of sexual assault.
this is from a candidate who has had his own infidelities and the expression those who live in glass houses, should they throw tones? will that work? >> i'm not sure. i imagine the heart of the mind set is the fact he is polling poorly with women. he wants to put a dent in hillary clinton's approval ratings with women. i'm not sure how this ad does that. i don't know what communicating or sharing what your opponent's husband allegedly did 20 years ago helps you get support from women today. we knew this was going to happen. we got hints of this coming before. we expect to see more. we do know that a top issue for voters is the economy. i think that he would be more concerned about the ad that hillary clinton put forward that shows that perhaps he was
wishing the worst luck on so many people. so many people that are actually behind him right now. >> does that work when we hear trump's words used against him? will we hear more of that? >> it depends on who we are talking about. there are people who will go with donald trump regardless. there will be people who will feel uncomfortable about the fact they lost their jobs and lost their homes and there is doubt about his business prowess despite he communicates it despite the businesses and casinos. >> as we see donald trump getting down and dirty with that instagram post, we are also hearing from hillary clinton at a rally in detroit on monday. she is getting strong with her words as well. attacking trump right where it hurts. attacking him how he does business. listen to this. >> trump economics is a recipe for lower wages, fewer jobs,
more debt. he could bankrupt america like he's bankrupted his companies. i mean ask yourself, how can anybody lose money running a casino, really? >> that's a punch to the gut. >> is this effective here? attacking him as a businessman? something he runs on as sort of the feather in his cap? it is a strike at his manhood, isn't it? >> that is how he communicates how he is the leader for the country as being a successful businessman. the way to attack him is to say you have not been as successful as you say you are. he doesn't have any government service to pull from. also hillary clinton is banking on people remembering the clinton years where the economy was better for many people.
even though she made it clear her husband will not be the president, that name affiliation doesn't hurt her in this situation. what hurts trump is the fact that his name hasn't been as successful as he says it has. >> let's talk about donald trump. he will be in the state of new mexico at the rally in albuquerque. the republican governor will not be attending that rally. the question to you, are we still seeing some republicans saying away from trump? >> we saw yesterday in the report on cnnpolitics.com that the trump campaign is getting some republican candidates up for re-election their blessing to distance themselves if they believe it will ultimately hurt them if it is time for voters to go to the polls. we know people are on board the trump train privately and not publicly. that is what matters most to the trump campaign. what people will do in november. not necessarily may. >> a private car on the trump
train and a public car on the trump train. >> we are seeing bernie sanders vowing to stay in the race. at some point, he will have to bow out. are we going to see consolidation with democrats getting behind hillary clinton? as we see the polls, this could give momentum to hillary clinton's numbers? >> we will see consolidation. how much is what is up in question and up in the air. as we said it before, in 2008, there were people who were supporting hillary clinton who said i will not support barack obama. they ended up doing so. that is expected to be the case here. how many is unclear. the never hillary hash tag and movement is real. there are people who will not vote for hillary clinton. there are certainly people on the sanders team who will vote for her if she's the nominee, including likely bernie sanders. >> such an interesting race.
two of the candidates who have the most negative ratings in a political cycle duking it out. eugene, thank you. let's get an early start on your money. we are watching dow futures in the green. stocks in europe are rising as well. we saw shares in asia close with losses overnight. oil prices holding steady below $48 a barrel. if you are looking to buy a house, you are finding high prices and fewer choices. zillow is saying home prices up 4.9% over the past year. the median home value at $187,000. low inventory and stronger wage growth and super low mortgage rates are moving the numbers higher. there are 3.4% fewer homes for sale in the u.s. than a year ago. 7.8% fewer entry level homes on the market than this time last year. denver, portland, dallas and san jose with the biggest year over year increase.

vietnam. known by its former name of saigon. the president finished a speech in hanoi. he tried to heal old wounds that have divided the u.s. and vietnam. we have cnn's alexandra field with more. he did not shy away from speaking about human rights. >> reporter: a lot of people wanted to hear him take on the issue of human rights, george, especially given the fact that human rights is in the back drop of the trip. you have the human rights groups very leery of the record here in vietnam. today, we did hear the president come out and promote human rights. one interesting point is he actually promoted human rights by saying people here in vietnam would see better working conditions and higher wages as a
result of the tpp. the trade deal which remains stalled in congress. he said that is a benefit to vietnam. this is something that is important to the president. he made no secret of that. he continues to say he is confident it will pass. he has support in congress. you have the candidates in the u.s. elections who have rejected the deal. unclear what the future of tpp would be even if it did pass. that said, the president is trying to drum up support for it. economic cooperation is a big part of the forecacus of the tr. he had a speech in front of 2,000 people who were gathered to listen to him today in hanoi. business leaders and students. not just in relation to the tpp, but he said there is common ground with vietnam and the u.s.
with the shared values of freedom of expression and freedom of speech. he said those are important when it comes to fuelling innovation which boosts the economy here. he has just landed in ho chi minh city. he well go to dreamplex. a help for entrepreneurs here in vietnam. he is praising the economic growth in vietnam in the post-war era. he also spoke candidly about what he considered the remarkable evolution of the u.s. and vietnam in years. he is not the first president in the u.s. to come to vietnam in the post-war era, but the first president to come of age in the post-war era. >> his historic trip for sure.
alexandra, there was a moment for the president which seemed cool. president obama met with our anthony bourdain. what was that about? >> reporter: they shared a meal. who better to share a meal with in vietnam than anthony bourdain. the meal cost $6. we will hear parts of the conversation on "parts unknown." an interesting experience for all parties involved and other people in the restaurant. i wonder who those people were. >> alexandra field, live for us, thank you for the reporting. a cool moment. >> it was cool. >> the top intelligence agent is out. kelly hogan faced criticism at the congressional hearing last month with three witnesses testifying he had no experience in the intelligence field, but somehow received a $90,000
