tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN August 17, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PDT
two new key players elevated to the top. who are they? how will they impact donald trump's attempt to focus in on policy? we'll look. the details of the fbi investigation into hillary clinton e-mails now in the hands of congress. and the clinton camp pushing back, asking the entirety of the probe should go public. will they get their wish? and simone biles leaving rio the way she started on top. good morning, welcome to "early start" i'm george howell. >> nice to see you, george. i'm christine romans, it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. let's begin with a political story, breaking overnight, another huge shake-up in the trump campaign. trump naming steve bannon as poll sister. and kellyanne conway is now campaign manager. bannon is a critic of paul join and mitch mcconnell.
paul manafort remains chairman but his power, many are say, is likely diminished with the new moves. much more on that. all of that taking the spotlight off of trump attempting to focus on policy. last night trump making a pitch to african-american voters in a place near milwaukee. he called for more police, more police in poor communities. he targeted hillary clinton agency anti-cop. cnn's jason carroll is there. he has more from wisconsin for us. >> reporter: christine, george, make no mistake, this was a law and order speech in west bend but it was also an attempt to reach out to the african-american community. donald trump when he took the stage talked about the violence plaguing the innercities. he talked about most of the victims like what we see things like what we saw in milwaukee or ferguson or baltimore. he talked about most the victims being african-americans.
and he said that hillary clinton shares responsibility for the unrest that we've seen in american cities for what he called fostering an anti-police narrative. and he says also for taking african-american votes for granted. >> we reject the bigotry of hillary clinton, which panders to and talks down to communities of color and sees them only as votes. that's all they care about. not as individual human beings worthy of a better future. they have taken advantage. she and her party officials, there has been tremendous suffering because of what they have brought. the african-american community has been taken for granted for decades by the democratic party. and look how they're doing. it's time to break with the failures of the past. i want to offer americans a new and much better future. >> reporter: donald trump
referenced the african-american community several times during his speech which was delivered here in washington county, which is a county that is overwhelmingly white, but having said that, the crowd really seemed to respond to donald trump's words. they even responded even more when he criticized hillary clinton saying that she does not have the, quote, physical or mental stamina for the job. and he also pointed reference to her slogan, i'm with her. he went on to tell the crowd, i'm with you, the american people. christine, george. >> jason, thank you. starting today, donald trump gets his first classified national security briefing. the briefing prepared by the director of national intelligence will mark the first time the republican nominee gets access to classified intelligence. we also have new information this morning about donald trump's tv ads, the trump campaign saying it will roll out its first general election ads this weekend, targeting five
battleground states where trump is falling farther behind in polls. congressional staffers now have access to secret documents and notes turned over by the fbi from its investigation into hillary clinton's private e-mail server. the bureau making the extremely rare decision to turn over investigative material from a closed case, all in the name of transparency. staff from the house oversight committee will have to review the material in a special secure room. material that cannot be publicly disclosed without the permission of the fbi. but the clinton campaign says it would rather see that material released to the public rather than have it selectively leaked by republicans. the resurgence of the e-mail issue is not slowing clinton down on the campaign trail. the poll numbers show that she is pulling away from donald trump in these key swing states like virginia, ohio and pennsylvania. let's bring in cnn politics reporter todd koppen and kristen holmes producer covering the
campaign for us. nice to see you bright and early this morning. kristen, you're covering trump for us this morning. give us your sense of what's happening here in team trump in terms of the shuffling at the very, very top here. is it paul manafort frustrated with the candidate or the candidate frustrated with manafort? >> well it's a little bit of both in states where they typically lean republican, you're seeing closer and closer numbers between donald trump and hillary clinton. now, because of this, there was tension between paul manafort and donald trump. so much so that sources tell cnn that they felt that there might be a shake-up. that a shake-up was imminent. and that they heard that paul manafort and donald trump were both telling friends about the friction within their relationship. all leading to this shake-up. and this is the second big shake-up that the campaign has
had in two months. it was just barely two months ago, we were sitting here talking about how trump had ousted his campaign manager corey lewandowski. so now her we are again, we were told at that point that paul manafort would assume that role as well as chairman. but now he's brought in kelley anne conway as the campaign manager a long time associate of trump and mike pence. and steve bannon, also a longtime associate of donald trump. people close to him who can help him in the next couple months. >> i want to talk about the snapshot of the trump campaign. let's start with african-american voters. you see right there on the screen, donald trump with 1% with african-american voters. look at the state of florida. very key swing state, in florida, hillary clinton ahead 48% to trump's 39%. state of virginia, very important for trump, 38% for trump and hillary clinton on top
with 52%. so with the shake-up at the top, trump being trump once again, as we saw trump during the primaries, will that work in the general election to bring in these key, very important voters that would be needed to put him over the top? >> well, that certainly seems to be what he's hoping. s, you know, definitely dvd and there's a healthy amount of skepticism that he's going to turn the numbers around. they've been holding instead since the clinton bounce. about a week. and poll numbers come out since the convention, the numbers are holding steady. she's got a good gap on him. you pulled out the numbers with african-americans we've seen him hit zero percent with state polling. it's zero to 5%, to be generous. those are abominable numbers for
a group that typically doesn't do well with african-americans but does better than that. consistent among polling, his core group seems to be white male voters often without a college degree that tends to be the only demographic he does better in. you see him trying new things in his message. but it's not clear that any of those things goring to turn around what seems to be fairly decided minds in the wrong direction. >> let's talk about the new message that he is trying out here. you look at that 1% of african-american voters. i mean, that's just a shockingly low, low number. and yesterday, you had him in wisconsin trying to rebrand again, you know, america's ills, as hillary clinton's fault. you heard him say that about isis, calling her the founder of isis, she and barack obama. and now he's saying that essentially clinton's policies, the policies that hillary clinton has backed has actually
caused problems in innercities. listen. >> hillary clinton-backed policies are responsible for the problems in the inner cities today, and a vote for her is a vote for another generation of poverty, high crime and lost opportunity. i care too much about my country to let this happen. >> kristen, he's making a pitch, specifically, he's saying the democratic party has failed african-american voters. will that resonate? >> well, it is a tough sale. you know, i've got to say, recent polling shows that barack obama is still highly favorable among african-americans. and that they -- all tend to vote, majority of african-americans do tend to vote democratic. so this is a tough sale for him to say the democratic party has abandoned african-americans in general. but, you know, he is working on
this outreach for minorities. it's not just african-americans that have a huge problem with minorities in general, himsespa as well as women. and i have spoken to a number of african-americans at these trump rallies who are supportive of trump, who do believe that he's a great equalizer. and that he will bring voices to the african-american community. but obviously, with those poll numbers, as tal mentioned, hitting zero in some states, he's not resonating with everyone. >> it's interesting, trump's law and order message, it focuses on putting more police officers in these neighborhoods. i just remember from my time covering events in ferguson, missouri, you and noted that that police department was under investigation. and determined that the department has actually saturated that community with officers with aggressive ticketing campaigns to bring revenue into the city.
many of the people that i spoke with in that community is saying, hey, that's not what we want more of. how would the trump message of law and order relate to those voters? >> well, i mean i was in gerg gusson as well, and i think it was quite an unique experience. and i think part of the problem, as you know, george from being there was the idea that the neighborhood itself was mostly african-american and they were bringing in mostly white police officers. so that caused friction in the community. in general, the direction of law and order, these are things that african-american communities in general do not believe. as you said in ferguson, they do not need more policing. it's not quite clear how that will resonate and it will actually relate to voters. kristen and tal, nice to see you. let's talk about the hillary clinton campaign for a moment here. hillary clinton traveling to ohio today. her mission to convince middle class voters that her tax plan
would help them. donald trump wants to do the same. let's compare. clinton would essentially keep current tax rates the same. she would raise taxes on the wealthy. she would propose a minimum 30% tax on people making $1 million a year. and a 4% surcharge on people making $5 million. and a sliding scale on the capital gains tax. and carry interest as regular income. trump is going to simplify the seven brackets to just three. he did not give specifics on what levels the brackets cover. we don't know who exactly would get the biggest tax cuts. he would lower the business rate to 15%. and he would carry interest deduction. and he wants to make child care expenses fully tax deductible. he has revised his tax plan.

with his law and order message. important to point out he gave a speech near but not in milwaukee. he called for more police in poor communities and targeted harrisbu hillary clinton as anti-cop, listen. >> the war on our police must end. and it must end now. those peddling the narrative of cops as a racist force in our society, a narrative supported with a nod by my opponent. shared directly in the responsibility for the unrest in milwaukee and many other places within our country. every time we rush to judgment with false facts and narratives, whether in ferguson or in baltimore and foment further uninterest, we do a direct disservice to poor
african-american residents who are hurt by the high crime in their community. >> starting today, donald trump gets his first classified national security briefing. that briefing prepared by the director of national intelligence will mark the first time the republican nominee gets access to classified intelligence. we also have new information this morning about trump's tv ads. the trump campaign says it will roll out its very first general re-election ads this weekend, targeting five battleground states where trump is falling farther behind in the latest polls. congressional staffers today now reviewing secret documents and notes turned over by the fbi for its investigation into hillary clinton's private e-mail server. the bureau making this extremely rare decision to turn over investigative materials from the closed case all in the name of transparency. staff from the house oversight committee will have to review that material in a special secure room that will not be publicly disclosed without the
commission's permission. but the clinton campaign saying it would have have it released to the public rather than secretly leaked by the republicans. poll numbers show her pulling away from donald trump in key swing states like virginia, ohio and pennsylvania. i lot to talk about today let's start out with tal koppen and kristen holmes, a cnn white house producer covering the trump campaign for us. good morning to both of you, tal, let's talk about the shake-up overnight in the donald trump campaign. two key advisers being elevated to top spots. paul nana for the, still the chairman. what does this tell us about the relationship i think between donald trump and paul manafort, maybe frustrations each may having having with the other and what kind of donald trump we may see on the stump this week? >> well, 2 certainly doesn't send the message of all being calm, when you bring in two completely new leaders in the campaign at this stage.
you talk about a labor day kickoff to the general election, but we are well into the general election at this point. and to bring in a new campaign manager, a new chief executive, seemingly layering on top of or next to paul manafort does not send a strong message about the state of the campaign. in fact, sources have told cnn that there has been tension, and there has been frustration on both sides between manafort and trump. in terms of what trump we're going to see going forward, in the past few days we've seen it directly coming out of his mouth. trump saying i am who i am, i'm not going to change. we've seen him doubling down on that message. you may remember several months ago, trump promising to be so presidential when we got to this stage. so we're seeing trump go back to this idea he knows what made him successful during the primaries an that's what he's going to stick with during the general election. and it's off-the-cuff, sometimes traditional trump that we know.
>> let's take a look at the snapshot of the general election as it stands right now. let's start with african-american voters. their support for donald trump, 1%. also, let's take a look at the state of florida, very important swing state, as we remember many other election cycles, donald trump behind hillary clinton, 39% to her 48%. also, let's go to the state of virginia. look at that. 52% for hillary clinton. 38%, donald trump. these are important states for trump to find a path to winning. so, the question, if we see trump now doubling down, maybe even tripling down, to show trump will be trump, will that work, in this general election? and bring in more voters that he needs to win? >> well, there's no indication that that would change what we've been seeing, and keep in mind, you know, at this point you expect convention bouncers to subside and the race to start to stabilize. so, the poll numbers we see starting now and going forward are likely to continue.
and the next sort of game-change moment we are going to get to in this campaign is that first president of the united statesial debate between donald trump and hillary clinton. and there are many people who believe by that point late september some of these numbers are going to be baked in. you know, it's not really a change. trump has been trump much to the vexation of those advising him and the rnc who wanted him to moderate. so him being more trump is not necessarily going to reverse the trend we've seen. and that's why you've seen him sort of testing these new messages on the trail to try to do anything to reverse this. >> kristen, let's talk more about the shake-up. you're covering the trump campaign. what are the latest breaking developments on this shake-up? what are insiders telling you about why they've made this move? >> well, you know, it's no secret that things are not going well on the trump campaign, as you mention, those poll numbers coming off of weeks of negative
headlines there. and it's not just the poll numbers in those swing states, we're looking at states like georgia that typically lean right, and now we're seeing a close race between hillary clinton and donald trump which is, you know, very, very, very rare. but looking at that, you know, those kinds of issues within a campaign causing tension, sources telling cnn that those tensions existed so much so that people near the campaign were expecting some sort of shake-up in coming days. it had a sense of it. one source telling cnn that both trump and manafort were talking to their friends about the situation, about their souring relationship. so, within that shake-up, you know, there is quite a bit of threads to follow there. but we are going to see how this affects trump. and one of the reasons we have this big shake-up just two months ago in corey lewandowski
was ousted as campaign manager. one of the big things people said that acorry lewandowski was telling trump to be trump. others advisers saying no, butten up, you have to act presidential. now, he's picked two people who are longtime associates who knows how he would how and as trump said, i'm not going to pivot. we'll see how this goes, going forward. >> we are seeing trump be trump the way he's reached in the outreach to african-american voters. let's listen to what he had to say the other day in wisconsin. we'll talk about it on the other side. >> it's time for our society to address some honest and very, very difficult truths. the democratic party has failed and betrayed the african-american community. democratic crime policies, education policies, and economic policies have introduced only more time, more broken homes and more poverty.
>> that was donald trump in wisconsin last night. so, tal, the question to you, donald trump saying, hey, more law enforcement in these communities. is that something that will resonate and bring in more african-american voters whose polling number is as we saw at 1%? >> it's really hard to make that case that this is going to sort of suddenly dramatically turn around those numbers. we saw the 1% number. other polls have shown him at zero percent in some states which to put in context republicans have traditionally not done well with african-americans but they've done much better than that. his numbers are abominable among them. it sort of misses a lot of the argument of the a lot of the activists we've seen speaking out against what they call, you know, ramp pants police brutality in this country. their point isn't that they need more police and more secure community, but that the nature of policing has harmed these communities.
so to try to discuss that issue. as we mentioned earlier, he was speaking in front of a predominantly white auld yens away from milwaukee which there has been much written about in the past few days, it's a very democratic city and a lot of system unrest that we've seen in the last few days to short of glossed over that and tailor more of his message more cops on the street. it sort of doesn't listen to what the complaints have been. it's hard to see that suddenly resonating with a community that has not been heard and honestly with politicians more broadly. >> tal and kristen, nice see you. thanks for getting up so early for us. big day ahead for both of you. donald trump immigration proposals is running into a gloomy forecast from his own alma mater. the wharton school in pennsylvania is estimating trump's plan to deport undocumented workers would result in 4 million job loss in
2030. 10% of undocumented population each year. researchers saying that undocumented population taking jobs that no one else wants, deporting them would shrink the labor force. and hillary clinton's proposal would be 400,000 job losses. but that would entitle them to safety net programs like unemployment benefits. the access to unemployment benefits would make some less likely to work, if they lost a job, might be less likely to quickly find another one once they are legal. however, researchers say documented workers tend to be more productive. so while the labor force would be a bit smaller, more workers would earn higher wages and that would boost the economy. 42 minutes after the hour. let's get a check on the stock market. record numbers in sight. the question for wall street, can the bull market keep going? at least a little pause for the
