tv   Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans  CNN  August 19, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PDT

2:00 am
after it was over, one woman told me donald trump was not just running his mouth. he sounded more presidential. he had more substance. another man telling me he seemed to speak from his heart. one thing that struck a number of people in the room, donald trump with not an apology, but he had regrets about some of the things he said in the past. >> sometimes in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don't choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. i have done that. and believe it or not, i regret it. and i do regret it.
2:01 am
particularly where it may have caused personal pain. too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues. >> reporter: at the top of the his speech, donald trump also talked about the heartbreak and devastation affecting the people of baton rouge, louisiana. we are now hearing that donald trump and running mate mike pence will be visiting the region later today. trump saying of what's going on in baton rouge. we are one nation. when one state hurts, we all hurt. we must all work together. christine, george. >> thank you, jason. let's talk politics with reporter eugene scott to help us figure out the new donald trump. here you have a scripted moment from donald trump where he says things he regrets. six months ago, we never would have seen. at the same time, he is hitting
2:02 am
the other note. hillary is dishonest. listen. >> while sometimes i can be too honest. hillary clinton is the exact opposite. she never tells the truth. one lie after another and getting worse with each passing day. >> the headline this morning, the new trump. the admission that there are things he regrets, but he also is on the attack here. >> this is not insignificant. i remember last summer writing the story about donald trump admitting he doesn't seek forgiveness from god. using language i have said the wrong things is significant. kellyanne conway, the new campaign manager, gave us a hint yesterday that we would see shifts. >> you see her fingerprints all over this? >> yeah. i don't think we would have seen this monday. where it goes from here is interesting to pay attention to
2:03 am
and whether or not the people who have backed trump to help him get to this place and like the fact he says these things from the heart that his critics do not like. whether they stay on board with him as much will be interesting. >> the word regret. opening the door and pivot, you could say, toward the general, toward women and other groups that may see this as a softer donald trump. the question does this open the door now for a long line of people who will want to know what do you regret? do you regret retweeting the tweets of extremists or the controversy with ted cruz and his wife or the back and forth with the gold star family. where do you start? >> very much so. he said i realize some of my words have caused people pain. as you mentioned, people want to know what you will change on because there are issues you would like to see him speak to with more depth. will he be able to win women voters, black voters,
2:04 am
millennials. all these groups he is losing. if he doesn't change and get specifics and people see how that manifests and see how he campaigns from this point forward, i don't know the impact. >> then his core supporters will say you are just like all the other ones. >> he needs to not just win independent votes, but republican establishment votes if he will win this whole thing. right now he has his base. he has to figure out how can i win my base and more republicans and independents. >> eugene scott, thank you. new this morning, republican vice presidential candidate mike pence submitting his financial disclosure form to the election. ten pages. a stark contrast from the 92 pages and hundreds of companies on donald trump's disclosure. here is what we know. he made $173,000 as governor of indiana. from the start of 2015 to the summer. he has pension accounts with the
2:05 am
state government. between $1,000 and $15,000 right now in his bank account. he took out several parent plus student loans between $95,000 and $280,000. 6% plus interest. rules allow candidates to give a range on the accounts. it is the only financial document candidates must legally submit and he will release his tax returns. the u.s. olympic committee is apologizing to the city of rio for the swimmers who said they were robbed at gunpoint. the swimmers face potential consequences. the behavior of the athletes is not acceptable nor does it represent the values of team usa or the conduct of the members. we apologize to the hosts in rio and the people of brazil for the
2:06 am
distracts ordeal in what is rightly a celebration of excellence. two swimmers, jack conger and gunnar bentz are home now. they were pulled off their flight 24 hours earlier and there is new video of the incident. you see the police accusing the americans of vandalizing a gas station. the two sides offering different accounts of what happened next. we have more from cnn's international correspondent nick paton walsh. >> reporter: christine, george, here is the scene of the crime or maybe the not crime. unclear at this stage. you recognize from the cctv video this alleyway down which you see the men walk. this is where they are alleged to have torn the poster off the wall and alleged to have urinated after a long night of celebrating. now, the question is what happened after that? they seem to emerge from here on the cctv that we see.
2:07 am
out into the court of the gas station after the night of celebrating. they get the wrong taxi then move on to the right taxi over here on this side of the gas station. then a man is seen bending down into the car. he's dressed in black. this is where the story diverges. then all sides worked out how to compensate the damages to the gas station. the swimmers say this marks a point in which there is a drop in the footage of three minutes during which the man leaning in, according to the swimmers, made out like he was a police officer pointing a badge and firearm and said give me money. making this particular gesture. we don't know how to reconcile the accounts. we know brazilian suspicions were raised by the items
2:08 am
returning home with the men to the village. maybe they can urinate behind the building and tear down the poster. these two very different accounts are very hard to reconcile now. christine. george. >> the swimmers claim there are three minutes of missing footage. there was a gap and initial video released. the video released later by the civil police and screened by cnn, there wasn't a gap in that footage. we will have more on the olympic games, including another gold medal for usain bolt later. many call it ransom. the state department calling it leverage. admitting hundreds of millions of dollars held from iran until americans are released. we will hear how the state department justifies that next.

the republican nominee in north carolina last night making his first appearance since the campaign reboot. his speech revealed a new trump, but not the way many expected. after hiring executives famous for being combative, trump came as close as he ever has to an apology. also making news with the last-minute scheduling change, adding a stop in louisiana to tour areas devastated by flooding. this as republicans try to paint president obama as out of touch for sticking to his golf vacation on martha's vineyard. more from jason carroll. >> reporter: christine and george, this was a very different donald trump we heard from charlotte. after it was over, i spoke to a number of people who were here. one woman told me donald trump in her words was not just running his mouth. he sounded more presidential. he had more substance.
2:30 am
another man telling me he seemed to speak from the heart. one point that struck a number of people in the room was when donald trump, it wasn't an apology, but he said he had regrets about some of the things he said in the past. >> sometimes in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues you don't choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. i have done that. and believe it or not i regret it. and i do regret it particularly where it may have caused

2:33 am
the teleprompter, that is remarkable. >> i think it is. we have kellyanne conway on "new day" yesterday. she gave us a hint this would happen. i think many people were surprised it happened less than 12 hours later. whether it continues remains to be seen. he is going to louisiana, especially during a time where president obama has received criticism for not showing a continuation of a new donald trump. >> there will be the optics of the national destruction and crisis in louisiana. donald trump and mike pence will be able to look presidental surveying the damage. there is an international story on the newspaper today. the little boy in aleppo. 5 years old in the back of the ambulance. he is almost embarrassed. just a new face of this old t j
2:34 am
tragedy. that is the boy's reality since he has been alive. a year ago, many are saying what are we doing to help these people. then what are we doing to keep people out of here who have been made refugees by the crisis. does this play politically here? >> i can't imagine we won't hear about it. this has taken viewers captive over the last not even 24 hours. what we are seeing is the narrative that the only people trying to come to this country for safety are the big, strong terrorists. we have 5-year-old boys who are victims of air strikes looking to america in some ways to rescue them. it will be interesting to see what the u.s. government and people running to lead it will say that gives people the belief and the awareness that we have the answers to these problems. >> i know myself, christine, we
2:35 am
are parents. when i see that image. if we can put it back on screen of little omran. this has been going on for year after year after year. >> the voters are talking about it. i saw on social media this morning and last night so many people had so many comments. people are concerned. they want to know how we got here. >> what do we do for other little kids and people and families in the same situation as little omran. >> we need grown up politicians with grown up policies to fix this. it has to stop. the question is will there be a serious attempt to have rational policy to help fix this. people can't live like this. it is ridiculous. >> eugene, thank you so much. moving on now to another

2:38 am
compensated the damages here at the gas station. this actually marks a point in a drop in the cctv footage of three minutes where the man leaned in, according to the swimmers, he pointed a firearm at them and said give me money. we don't know how to reconcile the two accounts. we know that brazilian suspicions were raised by the men returning home with substantial amounts of high value on them. the sources close to the swi swimmers say they did urinate behind the building and they knocked the poster down. but these two very different accounts are very hard to reconcile now. christine. >> the swimmers assertion of three minutes of missing footage is based on the initial release
