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

2:00 am
endorsement and a record month in fund raising. the zika virus now spreading in a different florida neighborhood. good morning, welcome to "early start." i'm john berman. >> and i'm christine romans. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. donald trump's campaign staff said to be increasingly frustrated as their club gets frustrated over it. campaign staffers, quote, feel like they're wasting their time. feel like they're wasting their time. among them campaign manager paul manafort. his fight includes the fight with american soldier family. and he praised ryan's underdog opponent, is this on top of new criticism by trump of senator john mccain. and that on top of other high profile republicans coming out overnight saying flat out, they
2:01 am
will vote for hillary clinton. cnn's jason carroll has the latest. >> reporter: this is really a stunning development. we'll have to see how this plays out across the gop landscape. donald trump saying in an interview with "the washington post" that he's not ready to endorse house speaker paul ryan in his upcoming primary election. house speaker saying i like paul but these are horrible times for our country we need very strong leadership. we need very, very strong leadership. and i'm just not quite there yet. i'm not quite there yet. that's pretty much the same language that ryan used when he went to endorse trump. trump also saying he's not supporting senator john mccain in his primary bid in arizona. saying he's not done a good job for the vets. and i always felt he should have done a better job with the vets. so i've always had a difficult time with john because our vets are not being treated properly.
2:02 am
trump also took aim at kelly ayotte calling her a weak and disloyal leader in new hampshire. and trump involved in another controversy, this after he talked about a purple heart recipient at his rally yesterday in virginia. >> there's something very nice just happened to me. a man came up to me, and he handed me his purple heart. now, i said to him, i said to him, is that, like, the real one? or is that a copy? and he said, that's my real purple heart. i have such confidence in you. i said, man, that's like -- that's like big stuff. i always wanted to get the purple heart. this was much easier. >> trump already under fire for comments he made about the family of the slain muslim u.s. soldier humayun khan. trump telling a local reporter
2:03 am
yesterday he has no regrets about anything he said about the family. both ryan and mccain did make statements defending the khan family. it should also be noted that chris christie spoke out in defense of the khan family. clearly, this is something that so far has not set well with trump. clinton just scoring a fortune 500 size endorsement and it's coming from a republican. meg whitman is the chairman and ceo of hewlett-packard saying, donald trump's demagoguery has undermined the fabric of our national character. america needs the kind of stable and aspire aceal leadership secretary clinton can provide. and whitman ran for governor as a republican. a longtime aide of new jersey governor chris christie is
2:04 am
backing clinton and an aide to jeb bush. >> prominent ceo, prominent republican, prominent woman. let's talk about what is not like a wild 24 hours, but 25 hours. brian seltzer host of cnn's reliable sources. and tom labianca, bring us up to speed on just what trump insiders are telling cnn about concerns inside the campaign? >> at this point it sounds like there's concerns this is the old donald trump. this is the trump who is getting in trouble all the time. this is not, i don't know if you want to say the reformed donald trump but the trump who showed up at the republican national convention just a few weeks ago. he was on point, on message. the teleprompter seemed to be
2:05 am
normal for him. now, we're back to the donald trump that maybe he doesn't even win the nomination of a few months ago. this is concerning because the window here is rapidly closing. we're within, what, 97 days. 97, 96 days. i mean, you can't keep having these stumbles. these massive trips and falls like this. that doesn't work in the general. >> so, let's talk about the leaks here, and brian seltzer, what the leaks mean when so many people talk about what's going on behind the scenes. and the front pages of the "wall street journal," trump missteps, gop uneasy. what do the leaks mean? >> staffers, aides, veterans of campaigns trying to get trump to improve with the media. they know he watches television, the papers. he gets printouts of the web, they're trying to stream him
2:06 am
through this. i remember john king talking about days ago, aides were advising trump to back away from the khan family and apologize and try to move. that was on sunday. in the interviews he hasn't backed down at all. so far, he hasn't taken the advice, listened to it. i think the leaks are more greater and greater signs that the aides are trying to communicate to him but also maybe looking out for themselves. oftentimes, when we see these leaks, it's because people are trying to set the stage because they leave. >> jason miller is now a guru inside the trump world put out a statement saying this is all bull. everything is perfectly happy and wonderful. >> he said, we're hiring more staffers. he was trying to truly put a happy face on this. some of the aides that are leaking, they're thinking about their next job. >> exactly. whatever happens, campaigns say
2:07 am
these are unnamed sources. yes, but unnamed sources don't talk to reporters and they're telling us all of this for a reason. >> could the campaign just back up and let this happen? talk about leaks, i tried for hours yesterday to get a clinton staffer just on background on a source. it's difficult to get this kind of information. trump campaign now, though, seems like it's leaking like a sieve. >> i don't know the machinations behind politics and how it works in d.c., as well as you do. but it seems that the clinton campaign set up this perfect softball for donald trump to take a hit at last week in the dnc. and he took it. he hit it out of the park. and now all we've been talking about is the khans for these four days. not talking about hillary clinton statements about james comey. and the dnc upheaval, resignations. almost like they set the trap, he took the bait. am i being cynical?
2:08 am
>> well, it's hard to be too cynical in politics, but it sure looks that way. the democrats are stepping out of the way, they're letting him keep on digging a hole with this. he has yet to put down the shovel. you know, it's compounded. i think what's different about this khan controversy versus some of the previous ones, it's such a broad swath of people. this -- i mean, this might be finally, a taboo that he's broken. i mean, we've been asking this question for months and months and months, did he finally cross the line. and this might be it. we saw eric trump yesterday say that he had actually apologized for this. he hasn't apologized for this. that added fuel to the fire. each misstep, every time he talked about this, it only gets worse. everything short of an apology is only adding to the problems here. you know, like i said, earlier,
2:09 am
the window is closing. >> i'll play devil's advocate, talked about a shovel, he's digging a hole and the hole is getting deeper. what if he's picking up a shovel and building a mountain. we're talk about meg whitman, a fortune 500 billionaire, we're talking about that's not what his supporters feel. perhaps in his mind, at least in his supporters' mind he's building a mountain. >> it's not just the khans. donald trump did an interview with "the washington post" which by choice he repeatedly went out of had its way to say he's not endorsing paul ryan in his primary battle in wisconsin. that he's not endorsing john mccain in his primary battle in
2:10 am
arizona. that he's not endorsing kelly ayotte. this is donald trump, intentionally, willfully, in some cases gleefully, sticking his finger in the eyes of the republican party establishment. the establishment, especially paul ryan who has done these contortions to at least be able to stand on the same stage as donald trump. i wonder how they're going to behaven and act and take this for the rest of the week. >> you start to wonder about that lindsey graham comment from a little while ago talking about the gonzalez serial comments being an exit ramp for anyone who had endorsed trump. it's kind of interesting. what the interesting is watch trump play a classical political game, right which is an endorsement game. there's a little risk there. if ryan walks out and crushes
2:11 am
his primary opponent, this looks bad for trump. everything north of about 30 points for paul mahlon, he doesn't have to win this for trump to look good in this scenario. he only has to get north of 30 percentage points or so. and that might not be popular in a scenario like that. ryan is incredibly popular in that area, in that border near southern wisconsin. he works at it very well. we all know he talks routinely, breaks a lot of news on radio stations out there so he's well-known. so i'm not so sure that the bar is too high for trump to have the eye-poking effect in this case. >> what about about obama yesterday saying republicans should give up on trump. unendorse him.
2:12 am
doesn't that make it more difficult for republicans to do that? >> he said that from the white house, in front of a head of state which i found was remarkable. mosquitos spreading the zika virus around new areas of miami. growing concern there. see me. see me. don't stare at me. see me. see me. see me to know that psoriasis is just something that i have. i'm not contagious. see me to know that... ...i won't stop until i find what works. discover cosentyx, a different kind of medicine for moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. proven to help the majority of people find clear or almost clear skin. 8 out of 10 people saw 75% skin clearance at 3 months.
