tv   Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans  CNN  August 16, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PDT

2:00 am
remember he took the stage at the rnc. he wrote in a new york times that the press is too important to let its role undermined by searching for clicks at the cost of a profession's reputation. details of thiel's personal life posted in 2007. forbes said who bidders have emerged. watch this space. "early start" continues right now. donald trump laying out his plans to combat terrorism worldwide. and trump coming under fire from the three best democrats in the nation. hillary clinton, president obama and joe biden. we will show you what they have to say. and a finish for the ages.
2:01 am
did allyson felix take gold in the women's 400-meter final? you cannot believe how close this was. >> what a race. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm george howell. it is tuesday, august 16th. 5:01 on the east coast. donald trump hoping to improve his campaign after giving a speech explaining his plan to take on and defeat isis. trump went on promising a global clash against islamic terror. he compared it to the cold war. he called for the testing of the values of would-be immigrants. trump vowed to keep guantanamo bay open. he also slammed hillary clinton and president obama. this time without calling them the quote founders of isis. trump blamed the terror group's rise on the policy decisions. >> we cannot let this evil
2:02 am
continue. nor can we let the hateful ideology of radical islam. oppression of gays and women and children. be allowed to spread within our countries. any country which shares this goal will be our ally. we cannot always choose our friends, but we can never fail to recognize our enemies. if i become president, the era of nation building will be brought to a very swift and decisive end. hillary clinton lacks the judgment as said by bernie sanders, stability and temperament and the moral character to lead our nation. she also lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on isis and all of the many adversaries
2:03 am
we face. >> as you would expect, the democrats jumped on trump's speech. clinton and vice president biden did so together campaigning in pennsylvania and the president taking time from his vacation. also slamming donald trump. cnn's sara murray is on the road with the trump campaign in ohio. >> reporter: good morning, christine and george. campaigning yesterday right here in ohio, donald trump said it is time to rewrite america's approach to foreign policy. it is time to end the practice of nation building and focus our efforts on fighting isis on all fronts. trump said to do that, we need to partner with any ally who is willing to fight isis alongside of us. in the more controversy side of the speech, he unveiled a new set of immigration pressures. saying there should be an ideology test for immigrants. whether the views are anti-semitic or anti-gay or
2:04 am
anti-women. >> in the cold war, we had an ideological screening test. the time is overdue to develop a new screening test. i call it extreme vetting. i call it extreme, extreme vetting. our country has enough problems. we don't need more. and these are problems like we've never had before. >> reporter: now donald trump delivered this speech from teleprompters. it was a rare moment where this unscripted candidate was on message. the question was republicans in and out of his campaign is whether he can stick with that for the rest of the week. he will campaign today in wisconsin and we should have a better sense then. back to you. >> sara, thank you. let's scope out the political battle field.
2:05 am
we have reporter eugene scott here in new york. so nice to see you. let's start on the strategy to defeat isis. we talked about the pillars donald trump wouldnput up there. he wants to suspend immigration from volatile regions. he wants to keep guantanamo bay open and a commission on radical islam. he laid this out. the clinton campaign jumped. the so-called policy cannot be taken seriously. it is a cynical ploy of the outrageous proposal to ban an entire religion from our country and no one should fall for it. is the trump policy yesterday, is it being received as a real legitimate immigration policy? >> everything i saw yesterday on social media looked at the
2:06 am
proposals and said what does that mean? which countries? i think we can guess libya and syria. there were not specifics and which ideology. he said something about anti-gay, but there were people saying you don't support marriage for gay americans. what's the message? how do you determine what is acceptable? there is the concern. does that change if they become americans? some of this is a violation of the first amendment. some have questions if this is realistic. >> i remember, he repeated that statement. extreme vetting. the question is what is the policy behind that? it sounds like a reality show. what does that mean? also i want to get into what we heard simply from rudy giuliani on the campaign trail. talking about terrorism and attacks on the united states. let's play exactly what mr. giuliani had to say and we can
2:07 am
talk about it here in a moment. >> remember, we didn't start this war. they did. we don't want this war. they do. under those eight years, before obama came along, we didn't have any successful radical islamic terrorist attack in the united states. they all started when clinton and obama got into office. >> now trump spokesperson clarifying what giuliani meant to say. you know, a lot of people stumped here. just a few miles from here, we know there was a major attack on u.s. soil. 9/11. >> right. one can argue the only reason we're talking about him. america's mayor 15 years later is because of that attack. and gaffes happen. there's grace. people understand what happens. this seems like an example to trump's critics of criticism and
2:08 am
partisanship going too far. not a lot of patience. >> that is the cover of "the daily news." i think you could also argue you see among trump supporters to rebrand radical islam born under this administration. not as something that comes out of 9/11 and decades, actually, but something that is more tied to failures from the administration. a clinton and obama era. listen to what trump said about that yesterday. >> at the very beginning of 2009, before the obama/clinton administration took over. libya was stable. syria was under control. fast forward to today. what we have and think of this
2:09 am
and the decisions made by the obama/clinton group have been absolutely disastrous. libya's in ruins. our ambassadors and others are dead and isis gained a new base of operation. >> eugene, you talk to foreign correspondents who covered the arab springs. the remark is it is an absence of u.s. or western pushes that really caused the arab springs in the first place. it doesn't reflect what donald trump is saying. >> i was reading this morning preparing for the show. that statement is probably one of surprise to a lot of libyans. before the obama administration, libya was just rife with human rights violations. women's rights violations. not a robust non-profit community. the whole idea that everything
2:10 am
was okay until the obamas came along is a low view of history if not incorrect. >> it does seem to be a rebranding of facts. >> very much so. i remember last week when s.e. cupp said trump has one of the weakest foreign policy knowledge reference points of any candidate. i retweeted what she said for the sake of conversation. the number of people who pushed back and said that's not true. actually his knowledge and experience is greater than obama's. he puts ideas out and people actually believes them. >> he exudes confidence. every opinion and every double down. he projects confidence. that resonate with his supporters. eugene, stick around. we will talk to you. thank you. let's talk about stocks. the stock market surging to record highs.
2:11 am
billionaires are fighting about the economic policies. on one side, mark cuban, owner of the dallas mavericks. supporter of hillary clinton. $3.2 billion net worth. on the other side, carl icahn. he is worth $17.4 billion. how do you unleash the power of corporations if you do nothing about the strangulating regulations which she said zero about. cuban responds to that. you know you would not hire donald trump unless you were short the company. betting the stock will drop. the two then went back and forth about regulations and global competitiveness. in the end, cuban likes icahn, but thinks he is dead wrong. >> a back and forth over the blue collar billionaire. and in the state of california, firefighters are working hard to get a handle on

2:32 am
the major speech laying out his plan to smash isis and safeguard the u.s. from islamic terrorism. trump promising a global clash. he called for testing the values of all would-be immigrants. trump vowed to keep guantanamo bay open and launch a commission on radical islam. he slammed hillary clinton and president obama without calling them the founders of isis. >> we cannot let this evil continue. nor can we let the hateful ideology of radical islam. oppression of women and gays and children. be allowed to reside or spread in our country. any country which shares this goal will be our ally. we cannot always choose our friends, but we can never fail to recognize our enemies.
2:33 am
if i become president, the era of nation building will be brought to an very swift and decisive end. hillary clinton lacks the judgment, as said by bernie sanders, stability and temperament and the moral character to lead our nation. she also lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on isis and all of the many add advesaries we face. >> and hillary clinton and joe biden stumping in pennsylvania and president obama talking about him as well. we have sara murray with the latest in ohio. >> reporter: trump said it is
2:34 am
time to rewrite the approach to foreign policy. time to end the practice of nation building and focus on fighting isis on all fronts. trump said to do that, we need to partner with any ally who is willing to fight isis alongside us. he also unveiled a new set of immigration measures saying there should be an ideology test for anyone coming to the u.s. whether they hold anti-semitic or anti-gay or anti-women views. >> we should allow those who respect our people and share our values. in the cold war, we had an ideological screening test. the time is overdue to develop a new screening test. i call it extreme vetting. i call it extreme, extreme vetting. our country has enough problems.
2:35 am
we don't need more and these are problems like we've never had before. >> reporter: now trump delivered this speech from teleprompters. it was a rare moment where this unscripted candidate was on message. the question for republicans in and out side of his campaign is whether he can stick with that for the rest of the week. he'll campaign in wisconsin today and we should have a better sense then. back to you. >> sara, thank you. the president's swipe at trump came at a fund-raiser for hillary clinton at martha's vineyard. he mocked the republican candidate without ever mentioning him by name. saying, quote, you notice i have not said much about her oppon t her opponent. frankly, i'm tired talking about her opponent. every time he talks, he makes the case for his candidacy. that came after hillary clinton and joe biden tag teamed the republican nominee in
2:36 am
pennsylvania. >> what's trump's plan? he laid it out last week. i'll admit before he did, i didn't think it was going to be good for working americans. but it turned out to be worse than i ever imagined. i know some of you may have friends up here in northeast pennsylvania who are thinking about voting for trump. i know. i know. friends should not let friends vote for trump. >> a lot to talk about here with hillary clinton and with donald trump. a political battle field this morning. let's bring in reporter eugene scott to talk about it all. our political reporter. good morning. >> good morning. >> i want to start with the extreme vetting statement. donald trump repeated during his speech. it sounds like a reality show. what are the policies behind it. what does it mean? >> we don't know exactly. we know a lot of donald trump
2:37 am
supporters are under the impression there is a weak vetting process or no vetting process. trump said we are letting in people by the thousands and not vetting them. that is not true. we talked about this this morning and i went to whitehouse.gov. all look into the backgrounds of people coming in before they are let in. what trump wants to add to that is not clear. i don't know what the definition of extreme is when it comes to this. >> there are people who would support that stronger vetting. >> what does stronger mean? you want to ask those people a lot of times are they aware of what is done right now? i see a lot of times people are asking on social media. we need to ask them this. it appears these are things we are already asking. >> people point to the boston marathon bombers. giving asylum to those two.
2:38 am
the potential problems in our midst. those are domestic home grown. they grew up in the country after coming here with their families. did he address domestic issues of home grown? >> it did not seem so. along those lines, what leaves people wanting to know more, how do you vet someone who comes here and passes the process, but gets radicalized in the process? you can't really vet that. you can't prevent until what someone will believe and do years in advance after coming to the states. >> i want to ask about something he said. mental and physical stamina. he talked about the mental and physical stamina. a lot of people are wondering is he talking about her gender or health? what is he talking about? >> i think it buys into the idea that donald trump is the
2:39 am
strongest candidate who is able to tackle isis way better than hillary clinton. last week, i tweeted out a story about hillary clinton releasing her tax returns with the hopes he would release his. most of the push back was not asking for release of speeches, but medical records. the thought was trump released his. that is not what he did. he had a statement from a doctor saying that he -- >> he is the strongest person ever to run for president. >> even if you have the physical strength to run for president, it is not clear how that helps you defeat isis. >> it was a statement and not record. >> it wasn't. we don't know who is the strongest of the two candidates. i'm not sure voters care. voters want to know who is the best in tackling what we are seeing with the terrorism. >> the clinton campaign also pushing forward on the notion that trump does not have the mental stability to be president. let's listen to what vice president joe biden had to say
2:40 am
about the nuclear codes. >> there's a guy that follows me right back here. has the nuclear codes. god forbid anything happen to the president and i had to make a decision, the codes are with me. he is not qualified to know the codes. he can't be trusted. this guy doesn't care about the middle class. and i don't blame him in a sense because he doesn't understand it. he doesn't have a clue. he really -- he really doesn't have a clue. >> the guy with the codes is like shhh. >> leave me out of this. >> you know, looking at the actual argument, is it resonating with voters? >> i think so. one could easily dismiss this as a partisan attack. quite a few republicans who are experts on foreign policy issues have come out and said we are not sure if donald trump or we are not that trump is not the
2:41 am
left person to be left with this contr control. it takes wisdom and insight and temperament and caution in terms of moving forward with how best to respond to a difficult situation. >> you see the military experts and high level republicans that are moving away from trump. moving forward hillary. >> i think it is also -- yesterday, we saw a lot of attacks at trump from clinton and biden and president obama. which we hadn't seen in a while. one of the reasons we hadn't seen that in a while is because they were letting republicans attack for the last couple weeks. >> eugene scott, thank you. a great segue. you look at the markets. record highs in the markets in part because markets are expecting the hillary clinton edge here. the major stock market averages have never been higher. dow up 7% this year. big rallies all around. you have not had all major
2:42 am
averages shitting highs since 1999. you have warren buffett with 15.2 million shares of apple. regulatory filings show the company bought 9.8 million shares in the first quarter. that was a bad time after two straight declining phone sales. the stock has bounced back. buffett says his deputies made the call. and walmart one of the best in the top 30 this year. that is remarkable. look at how the stocks have done. merck, united health care and caterpillar. that helps the record high yesterday. the nasdaq, s&p hit records. futures down slightly this morning. you have records for a number of reasons. strong jobs growth. u.s. is better than others for
2:43 am
investing. there is the theory in the market that they could live with a hillary clinton presidency more than a donald trump uncertainty. >> it is interesting to see the markets weighing in on this. following a situation in louisiana. the death toll there rising after devastating floods. the latest on what's ahead for that region as "early start" continues. you're not you. tylenol® pm relieves pain and helps you fall fast asleep and stay asleep. we give you a better night. you're a better you all day. tylenol®. i'm going to make this as simple as possible for you. you can go ahead and stick with that complicated credit card that limits where you earn bonus cash back. or... you can get the quicksilver card from capital one. quicksilver earns you unlimited 1.5% cash back on ev-e-ry purchase, ev-e-ry-where.
