tv   Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans  CNN  May 25, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PDT

2:00 am
facebook is doing this, twitter. "early start" continues right now. breaking news now. violent protests rage outside a huge donald trump rally. officers injured. at least one arrest. the race for president turning very tense this morning. good morning and welcome to "early start." i'm alison kosik. >> and i'm george howell. it is wednesday, may 25th. we begin with breaking news from overnight. hundreds of anti-trump protesters in new mexico lighting fires, throws rocks and bottles at police, injuring officer there officers there. police using smoke grenades and pepper spray to get control of that angry crowd. cnn's dan simon was in the middle of it all. >> reporter: well, it was quite a dramatic scene in downtown albuquerque tuesday night as a group of anti-donald trump protesters clashed with police. this is one of the remnants you find on the street.
2:01 am
this is an empty canister of pepper spray that police used on the crowd. this all began when you had a group breakthrough a barricade that police had set up to keep people from going into the convention center where donald trump was speaking. from there, things quickly descended into chaos. you had a number of people who were throwing bottles and throwing rocks at police officers. police showed remarkable restraint, not really arresting anyone. what they tried to do was to get the crowd to thin out. they were pushing them back in full riot gear. you had police officers on horseback. then finally, you had police use tear gas to try to get this crowd to disperse, and ultimately, that's what seemed to work. it's quite surprising what we saw, given throughout much of the afternoon this was a peaceful protest. you had well more than a thousand people assemble here in front of the convention hall, people who were criticizing donald trump's rhetoric when it
2:02 am
comes to immigration, some of his comments against women. then you had nightfall come. that's when things spun out of control. police officers trying to get those protesters to calm down, but you had a lot of people who were just intent on causing trouble. fortunately, things have calmed down here in downtown albuquerque. dan simon, cnn, albuquerque, new mexico. >> all right, dan simon. thanks for that. so trump, clinton, and sanders all campaigning in california today. let's dig into this more and discuss this unusual sight of -- maybe these days not so unusual, all of the protesters. but the day's political warfare. good morning. thanks for coming on so early. you know, it's hard to turn your head away from these protests that really seem to dog donald trump. >> sure. well, on one level, we really have to lament and worry about what we see as a rising trend of political violence in this campaign.
2:03 am
political violence on one level is always a failure of the political process to address people's real concerns in a nonviolent way. as we look towards the last primaries and conventions, the fear of somebody really getting hurt is a concern for everybody involved. i think there's a widespread feeling that both sides need to do more to make sure that doesn't happen. on a political level, what we're looking at is, you know, the fact that donald trump has really failed to really tamp down serious concerns about his comments on immigration and mexicans and women despite that tweet on cinco de mayo of him eating a taco bowl. doesn't seem to have done the trick. this is where that issue will come to a fore. when we look at the election map, that has to be in the mind of the trump, clinton, and sanders campaigns.
2:04 am
>> we just want to show you the reaction from donald trump. he tweeted, ignoring the protests, saying great rally in new mexico. now in l.a., a big rally in anaheim. not acknowledging what happened there. but his senior adviser blasted the protests, saying this on twitter. watching thugs and punks in albuquerque en route to california. they don't even know what they're protesting. at some point, you know, trump really does have to acknowledge that this is happening. maybe as you said, by moderating on some of these issues he would see that in the response to where he shows up for his rallies. >> yeah, alison. i think you're exactly right. i would add that the trump campaign has not come around to thinking about what their actual outreach to hispanic voters, especially in this crucial region of the southwest, will be. they've tried ignoring them. they've tried dismissing them. they've tried mocking them. none of those things seem to be working. they might make the calculation
2:05 am
that it just isn't worth it for them to try to adjust their red r -- rhetoric, much less their policies, to capture this growing and influential part of the electorate. politically, that seems shortsighted. you have to wonder, as the trump campaign, what will they do. they don't seem to have figured out their policy for addressing this problem in their overall strategy. >> so you talk about focusing on hispanics as the pivot happens toward the general election. the focus on moving toward women, getting women -- support from women. i want you to listen, though, to what happened last night at the rally. i want you to hear from donald trump himself on the topic of surrogate, albuquerque attorney david chavez, and the way he set up this rally. let's listen to this. >> i keep hearing about this woman thing. i think i'm doing really well with women, but what do i know? what do i know?
2:06 am
i can tell you this. much less exciting to me, fellas, they say i'm setting records with men. that's so unexciting to me. i want to set records with women, not with men. the hell with the men, right? the hell with the men. i want to set records with women. >> i've heard people say, i don't know who to choose, trump or hillary. even bill clinton chose other women. so you should too. >> uh, josh, will that work with women? >> what we can do here is look at the numbers. according to the recently released cbs/"new york times" poll, trump's unfavorability with women. hillary clinton is also under water were women, but it's a much narrower gap.
2:07 am
apparently donald trump and his campaign aren't reading those polls or don't think they're accurate. the numbers are looking bad in terms of donald trump's support amongst women. despite that, the campaign just seems to be doubling down on its strategy to sort of oddly call out hillary clinton for allegedly playing the woman card, something that the clinton campaign is happy to just lean into. they've been sending out little cards that say the woman card to everyone. my mother just got one. so the trump strategy isn't changing. it sort of defies logic and defies the polling numbers, but that's what he's going with. the real only test will be that poll, that final poll in november. >> i want to point this out. we've got probably 30 seconds left, josh. when it comes to bernie sanders, not to be left out, that focus on california with hillary clinton, how is it going to work with bernie? he's telling people that he is the candidate to beat donald trump. is that working among democratic
2:08 am
voters? >> yeah, i mean, i wouldn't say as hillary clinton said that it's over. i would say that it's close to over. after the california primary, it'll be even closer to over. as we've discussed all cycle, the question is whether hillary clinton can tap into that bernie movement, bring him along, bring his people along, especially when we look at the numbers with women. bernie sanders has great numbers with women. hillary clinton has okay numbers with women. if they can combine forces, that would be a formidable effort against donald trump. we're going to have to wait longer to see if that unity can come about. >> after california, we'll see if that happens. >> josh, we'll come back to you in a little bit. more to talk about. thanks so much. time for your early start on your money. dow futures pushing higher at the moment. european stock markets are up. we saw asia finish with big gains overnight and oil prices up near $50 a barrel. what a nice rally for stocks yesterday. the dow jumping 213 points, or more than 1%. nasdaq with the strongest gain there, up 2%.
2:09 am
the s&p 500 rising as well. why the big rally? well, new home sales surged more than 16% in april. that marks the highest level since january of 2008, this was just before the housing collapse. new home sales are both a gauge of the housing market and construction. also, home values are rising because of low inventory. so what we're seeing here, more new homes being built. >> that's always good news. a story we're following, bill cosby will face a trial in a decades old sex assault case. that's next as "early start" continues.
2:10 am
>>psst. hey... where you going? we've got that thing! you know...diarrhea? abdominal pain? but we said we'd be there... woap, who makes the decisions around here? it's me. don't think i'll make it. stomach again...send! if you're living with frequent, unpredictable diarrhea and abdominal pain, you may have irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea or ibs-d - a condition that can be really frustrating. talk to your doctor about viberzi. a different way to treat ibs-d. viberzi is a prescription medication you take every day that helps proactively manage both diarrhea and abdominal pain at the same time. so you stay ahead of your symptoms. viberzi can cause new or worsening abdominal pain. do not take viberzi if you have or may have had pancreas or severe liver problems, problems with alcohol abuse, long-lasting or severe constipation, or a blockage of your bowel or gallbladder. if you are taking viberzi, you should not take medicines that cause constipation.

2:30 am
"early start." i'm george howell. >> good morning. i'm alison kosik. 30 minutes past the hour. we begin this morning with breaking news. hundreds of anti-trump protesters in new mexico lighting fires, throwing rocks and bottles at police, injuring officers, even smashing a door the a the albuquerque convention center, where trump was holding a huge rally. police using smoke grenades and pepper spray to get control of the angry crowd. cnn's dan simon was in the middle of it all. >> reporter: well, it was quite a dramatic scene in downtown albuquerque tuesday night as a group of anti-donald trump protesters clashed with police. this is one of the remnants you find on the street. this is an empty canister of pepper spray that police used on the crowd. this all began when you had a group breakthrough a barricade that police had set up to keep people from going into the convention center where donald trump was speaking. from there, things quickly
2:31 am
descended into chaos. you had a number of people who were throwing bottles and throwing rocks at police officers. police showed remarkable restraint, not really arresting anyone. what they tried to do was to get the crowd to thin out. they were pushing them back in full riot gear. you had police officers on horseback. then finally, you had police use tear gas to try to get this crowd to disperse, and ultimately, that's what seemed to work. it's quite surprising what we saw, given throughout much of the afternoon this was a peaceful protest. you had well more than a thousand people assemble here in front of the convention hall, people who were criticizing donald trump's rhetoric when it comes to immigration, some of his comments against women. then you had nightfall come. that's when things spun out of control. police officers trying to get those protesters to calm down,
2:32 am
but you had a lot of people who were just intent on causing trouble. fortunately, things have calmed down here in downtown albuquerque. dan simon, cnn, albuquerque, new mexico. >> what a night. to talk about this, let's bring in cnn political analyst josh rogan. i want to talk about the protests we saw overnight there in albuquerque. again, a state that's very important considering it has a very high hispanic population. again, you get a sense of how polarized things are in this election cycle. you look at these images of so many protesters, and josh, we've seen this before. we saw it in chicago. we saw it in southern california. now we're seeing it here. here's how donald trump responds. from a donald trump tweet, he says, great rally in new mexico. amazing crowd. now in l.a., big rally in anaheim. here's another tweet from trump's senior adviser, who says, watching thugs and punks in albuquerque en route to california. they don't even know what they're protesting. again, we're talking about a very polarized election cycle.
2:33 am
so is the trump campaign responding in the proper fashion, do you think? >> right, george. i think you've put your finger on the two big issues here. one is this is not the first, nor will it likely be the last of these protests, which although they haven't resulted in major injuries and major violence, they have the potential to do so. it's just a matter of time if this pattern is allowed to continue. there's a real risk of somebody getting really hurt or worse. the question is, does the trump campaign have a responsibility to do whatever it can to make sure that doesn't happen. if you believe they do, then the trump campaign is falling woefully short of that responsibility by either ignoring or dismissing or mocking these protesters. it's simply not a strategy that's going to lead toward some sort of resolution or path towards preventing political violence, which is really a loss not just for the campaign and for the electorate but for the country. on the other issue you mentioned, which is the broad dissatisfaction amongst hispanic-american voters with
2:34 am
the trump campaign's rhetoric and with donald trump himself, that's a problem for the trump campaign going forward, especially in those southwestern states which have high hispanic populations. again, the response from the trump campaign has been dismissive. that is a very odd and puzzling choice. they can continue to discount this large group of voters in all of these key states that are really calling for donald trump to say something a little bit different, a little bit more respectful, a little more responsible about their issues, but they show no signs of doing that. that, for some unexplainable reason, seems to be their policy going forward. >> it's interesting. >> and in new mexico yesterday, we saw, you know, hillary clinton of course on the campaign trail in general. we saw donald trump as well. we also saw donald trump speak out against hillary clinton's sort of new strategy about attacking donald trump and his business practices. let's first hear what he had to say, then we'll talk to you on the backside. >> sure. >> and i will never say this,
2:35 am
but she screams. it drives me crazy. i didn't say it. i can't listen. she goes, and donald trump is a terrible person! and he wanted to buy housing when it was a the a low point! who the hell doesn't? who doesn't? >> okay. whether or not that's effective, that's the question there. but something to think about. when the housing market collapsed, donald trump wasn't the only investor who made money off the backs of those who were suffering. it's the reason why you see people in the stock market buy low and sell high. it's just the nature of business. then you had hillary clinton the day before saying, look, questioning donald trump's business acumen. so which is it? >> well, alison, i think you make a good point here, which is that donald trump was acting as a businessman and not as a public servant. but that feeds into the clinton narrative and the clinton
2:36 am
strategy, which is to point out that donald trump has not been working in the best interest of voters and americans and has really taken positions and actions over the years that have enriched himself and not looked out for the benefit of the majority. now, the clinton campaign, as part of this effort, is rolling out surrogates. they've got people on the house floor making speeches. this is a very coordinated operation by the clinton campaign to point out that not only did donald trump sort of root for the fall of the economy, but also at the same time, his employees at trump university were dismissing the idea that the housing collapse was a real thing. so he seems to have been profiting off of both scenarios, which seems disingenuous at best, if not fraudulent. so i think there's a lot there. i think the trump campaign is being forced to react to it. they're still sorting out that reaction. whether or not the trump
2:37 am
supporters care is doubtful. whether or not the non-trump supporters that are now going to be sought after in this general election care, is really the important issue. >> josh, i want to talk about trump and support of women. specifically, let's talk about donald trump last night in the rally, his comments at that rally. i also want you to listen to a sound clip from a surrogate, from david chavez, who set up the rally. listen to this. >> i keep hearing about this woman thing. i think i'm doing really well with women, but what do i know? what do i know? i can tell you this, much less exciting to me, fellas, they say i'm setting records with men. ugh, that's so unexciting to me. i want to set records with women, not with men. the hell with the men, right? the hell with the men. i want to the set records with women. >> i've heard people say i don't
2:38 am
know who to choose, trump or hillary. even bill clinton chose other women. so you should too. >> so josh, when it comes to getting support of women, is this the right play? >> well, george, i think you have to look at the numbers here. if you look at straight polls of female support, they show donald trump's disapproval among women is about 60% versus 21% approval. hillary clinton's support is about 48 negative versus 35% approval. so his claim that he's doing very well with women isn't supported by the facts. now, if you drill down a little bit further, you find that women who prioritize security issues actually like donald trump the best. women who prioritize what we define as women's issues actually like hillary clinton the best. now, doesn't seem that donald trump is really reading or caring much about those polls. it does seem that, as he said, his support is very high amongst men, especially white men.
2:39 am
that's simply not going to be enough for him to win the presidency. this is donald trump's response when these things come up. when he has a problem with hispanics, he says, i love hispanics. when he has a problem with women, he says, i'll be the best for women. that's generally what he thinks and believes. it's just not supported by facts. when the poll happens in november, donald trump will either be proven right or wrong, and that will make a huge difference in who becomes the next president. >> so one of the struggles for hillary clinton has been in trying to show her human side. i think she's trying to do this today. she's going to be on "ellen." the episode was taped yesterday. i'll show you a snippet here. >> mark cuban or joe biden? >> oh, joe. >> all right. you're picking joe. >> got to go with tony. >> tony. jeff probst. >> go the to go with tony. >> bernie sanders. >> got to go with tony. >> kanye? >> got to go with tony. what can i say?

>> george clooney. >> oh! >> okay. so clearly they were playing a game of who would you rather. this is helping so she can have a little fun here. bernie sanders she didn't go with though. >> right. i think first of all, tony plays a president on "scandal," who's charming, cheats on his wife, and the wife becomes a senator and runs for president. i can see why that might appeal to hillary clinton. and let's face it, that guy can act. so i can't quibble with her choice there. i think hillary clinton has an uphill battle in humanizing herself to the voters. it's just not her strong suit. and it's not something she's been very practiced in, having been in the public eye for so long and out of daily life that most americans can relate to for so long. but she's trying. we'll see how that goes. >> all right, josh. thanks so much for coming in. we loved your analysis. >> any time. president obama landing in

president obama's scheduled it touch down in tokyo for a g7 summit in about an hour, after wrapping up a historic visit to vietnam that included normalizing ties and dropping a decades' old arms embargo. overnight, the president hosted a town hall in ho chi minh city, raising the thorny issue of human rights violations. let's go live to ho chi minh city and bring in cnn's alexandra field. so we are awaiting president obama to touch down, as i said, in tokyo, but it's really his stop in hiroshima that's considered significant. >> reporter: right. he's got the meeting with the g7 summit leaders. he's also got a meeting with japan's prime minister, shinzo abe, but yes, as you point out,
2:46 am
the real significance in this visit to japan will be that visited to hiroshima. it's the first time that a u.s. president has been to the site of the place where the first atomic bomb attack happened. we know this is something that president obama has expressed a desire to do. certainly it's a decision that will be regarded as controversial by some. the president has no intention of making any apology for u.s. actions in hiroshima, but his advisers say that this is about acknowledging the past. it's a recognition of the past. it's very much really in line with what the president actually did here in vietnam, where he spent a lot of time reflecting on the history between these two countries, vietnam and the u.s. he actually also spent a lot of time remarking on how quickly these two countries were able to heal those war wounds in this post-war era, crediting veterans for really doing a lot of the work in uniting these two nations and putting them in a position where they could work to boost greater economic
2:47 am
cooperation and greater security cooperation, which were the key elements of his time in both hanoi and ho chi minh city. he also had an opportunity before leaving ho chi minh city after making a big case on his trip for the tpp, the transpacific trade deal, and after announcing the drop of the decades' long arms embargo, he had some time before leaving vietnam to spend with young people in this city. he held a town hall, where people were able to ask him some questions. he fielded a number of questions. it was sort of a lighter, more humorous side of president obama that people got to see here, including one moment where he decided to beat box with a young rapper. so left this trip on a high note. now more serious business as he heads to japan, alison. >> beat box, huh? that must have been fun to see. cnn's alexandra field, thanks so much. now to the head of the tsa. in the hot seat on capitol hill this morning, peter neffenger is set to be grilled by the house homeland security committee about three-hour wait times at airport security check points.
2:48 am
thousands of passengers are complaining about missing flights and connections. the tsa is expected to offer up a couple of near-term solutions, like an automated baggage bin system and real-time data to keep travel efers informed abou wait times. but those ideas are not expected to have any impact any time soon. the house committee is considering legislation to correct the problem. french police raid google's offices in paris, looking for evidence of money laundering and tax evasion. anti-corruption officers and tech experts took part in this search. this is according to the state prosecutor. french officials began investigating google last june. the prosecutor's office says the preliminary inquiry is looking into what it calls aggravated financial fraud and organized money laundering. the french government reportedly believes that google owes 1.6 billion euros in unpaid taxes. that works out to about $1.8

welcome back. the mystery deepens in the disappearance of egyptair flight 804. this morning there are conflicting reports about that doomed plane's final moments. this as time ticks down to find the plane's black boxes before the locator signal they give off goes silent for good. following it all, cnn's ian lee live in cairo, egypt, this morning. ian, what's the latest you've learned on this investigation? >> reporter: well, george, what we're hearing this morning is reconfirming what we heard early
2:54 am
on in this investigation about the final moments of this plane, that there was a problem with the heating sensor. that was detected as well as smoke in the lavatory and the avionics. we're also hearing that the engines at the beginning of the flight were operating normally. the pilot signing off before the flight that as far as he was concerned and what he saw, the plane was fit to fly. but today the investigation still very much in the mediterranean as they do try to locate those data recorders. they have about a month window here where the battery inside the data recorders will be sending out a signal, something that they can detect. once that battery dies, it'll be far more difficult to locate the data recorder. so a ticking clock there. they're also trying to look for the fuselage, any sort of evidence that can help them piece together exactly what has happened. as of now, really, all options, all causes are open. here in cairo, though, at the
2:55 am
morgue, officials are saying they finished the dna testing of everyone, all the family members who have come. they're also working on dna of the french family members. this is to ensure that once they're done with the remains, that they are able to return them to the appropriate family members, but also with those remains, there's 15 bags' worth. we're told by morgue officials that no piece weighs more than two pounds. quite gruesome work there as they try to determine if there's any evidence on these remains that point to what actually happened in the sky. so this investigation still very much open and under way. >> cnn international correspondent ian lee live in cairo for us. ian, we appreciate your reporting. all right. let's get an early start on your money. we are watching dow futures pointing higher at the moment. stock markets in europe and asia posting nice gains overnight. oil prices climbing close to $50 a barrel. one stock we are going to be
2:56 am
watching today, hewlett-packard enterprises. shares are are up 11% in premarket trading. the company is spinning off its enterprise services unit and actually merging it with computer sciences corporation. that stock currently up 21% in premarket trading. one interesting note here, both companies were formed by spin-offs last year. shares of gopro are getting a big boost from red bull. gopro shares jumped almost 5% yesterday after it announced the deal with the energy drink company. but the stock is down 45% this year and 90% below its all-time high. now, the two are going to be partnering on content distribution and international events. red bull is going to be scoring some gopro stock as part of the deal as well. but you know, gopro really needs a comeback here. sales have spiralled. the company lost more money than expected last quarter. still, this deal really seems to make sense because red bull has an online video network focused on action sports. many of them are shot with gopro
2:57 am
cameras. that's an adrenaline deal. if you use twitter, the change you've been waiting for is here. the social media site changing the 140-character limit on tweets. it's still going to apply to text, but now when you add pictures and video and polls and handles, all that stuff is not going to count against the 140-character limit. twitter says it will make conversations easier. it's also going to be looking at making additional changes in the coming months. twitter has 300 million users, but its growth really has stagnated lately. its stock getting crushed this year. look at that, down almost 40%. the company has been looking for lots of ways to make its service easier to use while also matching some of the richer features offered by many of its competitors. so you're seeing twitter really becoming creative in trying to get more users on to its website. >> but will it work? we'll have to see. following the breaking news this morning, violent protests outside a donald trump rally.
2:58 am
cnn's "new day" starts right now. anti-trump protestors have taken to the streets. >> he actually said he was hoping to crash. >> i'm a businessman. that's what i'm supposed to do. >> we're not going to let him bankrupt america. >> if we get the nomination, donald trump is toast. the court found there was sufficient evidence to require mr. cosby to stand trial. >> there was no crime committed here. this case should end immediately. >> we want to seek the truth. we're here to serve justice. it has been confirmed that he is dead. >> a major change in taliban leadership. >> mansour's replacement could be even more dead buy. >> announcer: this is "new day" with chris cuomo and alisyn camerota. good morning, everyone. welcome to your "new day" it is
2:59 am
wednesday may 25th, 6:00 in the east and ana cabrera is with us today. >> it's like a square here. >> it maying confusing but you'd handle it. overnight, anti-trump protestors turning violent, clashing with police, even breaking through police barriers to disrupt trump's speech. several officers hurt in this melee. nevertheless, the presumptive gop nominee won another state. trump is only eight delegates away from officially clinching the nomination. remember that magic number? and now the question remains what will bring bernie sanders and hillary clinton together? we have the race covered the way only cnn can.
3:00 am
jason carroll joining us with more on the protests. >> reporter: good morning. before much of the unrest trump said during his speech last night he was doing great with hispanics, going on to say he was going to win them over. the reality is, he's not doing well with hispanics, many upset about the comments he made calling them rapists and drug dealers, and they took their anger to the streets. overnight, police in riot gear blasting pepper spray. >> [ bleep ] push her [ bleep ] to the ground! >> reporter: and using smoke grenades to disburse ain't donald trump protestors outside his rally in albuquerque, new mexico. >> start moving! >> reporter: hours after the presumptive gop's nominee speech. >> get back! >> reporter: dozens of protestors stomping on police cars. and throwing rocks and bottles at police, injury several officers.
