tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN August 25, 2016 1:00am-2:01am PDT
donald trump with a huge shift on immigration. reversing one of the hallmarks of his campaign and this comes as he unveils a new line of attack against hillary clinton. hillary clinton taking to cnn to defend herself from trump's attacks. what she said about the republican nominee and how she is defending herself on the e-mails and clinton foundation. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm john berman. it is thursday, august 25th. donald trump seems to have a new position on immigration to go
with a new line of attacks. last night, donald trump suggested to fox news he would allow some undocumented immigrants to stay in the united states. why does this matter? for more than a year, trump made clear that all 11 million undocumented immigrants, he thinks, he thought, they had to go. even if it took a deportation force. apparently not anymore. >> they will pay back taxes. they have to pay taxes. there's no amnesty. there's no amnesty. but we work with them. i had very strong people come up to me. really great people come up to me and they said, mr. trump, i love you, but to take a person who has been here 15 or 20 years and throw them and the family out is so tough. i have it all the time.
it's a very, very hard thing. >> this is new. this is a new policy for trump. an old one for other republicans, including ones that trump beat in the primaries. jeb bush and john kasich. to be clear and fair, trump's positions are hard to pin down. he was not really pressed on them last night. he does have a big immigration speech next week. one planned for today. in addition to all of that, donald trump held a rally in the red state of mississippi. he hurled a surprising charge at hillary clinton. cnn's jim acosta has the latest. >> reporter: john and christine, donald trump has come up with a super charged line of attack for hillary clinton in jackson, mississippi. he called clinton quote bigot. that goes further than what he said when clinton did not care about the african-american
voters and hispanic voters. >> hillary clinton is a bigot who sees people of color only as votes. not as human beings. worthy of a better future. she's going to do nothing for african-americans. she's going to do nothing for the hispanics. she's only going to take care of herself, her husband, her consultants, her donors. these are the people she cares about. she doesn't care what her policies have done to communities. >> reporter: he talked about immigration reform. talking to the crowd that the policy will not adversely effect jobs. he would allow undocumented people to stay in the country if they have not broken the law.
>> a huge shift. hillary clinton has a highly anticipated speech in nevada today. she will try to tie trump to the ultra right movement. this comes after a series of questions emerged of overlap with the clinton foundation donors and the state department. overnight, hillary clinton gave her first interview on that subject with anderson cooper and she talked about her speech today. >> donald trump called you a bigot. he had been calling your policies a bigot. now he is calling you a bigot. >> donald trump is showing us who he is. we should believe him. he is taking a hate movement mainstre mainstream. he is bringing it to our community and country. he is someone who is very much pedaling bigotry and paranoia.
>> donald trump is now indicating he would allow some immigrants to remain in the country. what do you think of the shift if this is his policy moving forward? >> he is trying to do a shuffle here. i think we need to look at the entire context. we need to believe him when he bullies and threatens to throw out every immigrant in the country. certainly when he changes his position three times in one day, it sends a message it is just a desperate effort to try to land somewhere that is not as devastating to his campaign as his comments and his positions have been up until now. >> according to "the new york times" you said colin powell advised you to use a private
server. he said for a year you were using this before i told her what i did. did you say that to fbi investigators and is secretary powell right? were you using that prior to your conversation with him? >> i have been asked many questions in the past year about e-mails. what i learned is that when i try to explain what happened it can sound like i'm trying to excuse what i did. there are no excuses. i want people to know the decision to have a single e-mail account was mine. i take responsibility for it. i apologized for it. i would do differently if i could. i'm grateful the justice department concluded no basis to pursue this matter further. >> he said quote you sold favors in exchange for cash for time through the foundation.
you agreed to make changes if elected. why not make the changes now? have your husband step away from the foundation now? >> first, what trump has said is ridiculous. my work as secretary of state was not influenced by outside forces. i know there is no smoke and fire. the ap report put it in context. it excludes nearly 2,000 meetings i had with world leaders and other meetings with u.s. officials when i was secretary of state. it looked at a small portion of my time. it drove a conclusion and made the suggestion that my meetings with people like the late, great elie mozel were due to connection was the foundation instead of status as global leaders. >> that is what we heard from
surrogates for the past 24 hours. trying to tamp down that story. >> a lot going on. previewing the speech on the so-called alt right movement. previewing that. responding to the trump charges she is a bigot. it is interesting because we don't hear the pre-conferences. >> she said stay tuned. hillary clinton blasting the price hike in epi-pens. it can be the difference between life and death. there is no justification. in the facebook post, she calls them outrageous and mylan, maker of the epi-pen reduce the cost. it is wrong when drug companies put profits ahead of patients and raising the prices. if elected, she would require the drug companies to explain big price hikes. that is scaring price hikes.
mylan is to be is down 5% yesterday. pfizer is down as well. health care stocks are feeling it. the drug sector hit on the idea maybe congress and washington will be more active in coming months on the price increases. >> unsteady time on wall street. >> i feel like it is eerily quiet. janet yellen speaks in jackson hole this week. the death toll from the earthquake in italy has nearly doubled overnight. we have new developments in the rescue efforts ahead. boosr gel. na with hyaluronic acid it plumps skin cells with intense hydration and locks it in. for supple, hydrated skin. hydro boost. from neutrogena
struck. collapsing buildings and leaving small mountain towns in ruin. rescuers are looking for signs of life. there are remarkable stories of survival. i want to bring in our reporter live in italy. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the stories are few and far between. a young girl has been pulled from the rubble. in the small enclave, they pulled out the last body of the last known victim. an older woman. her son had been waiting all night for word if she was alive or found a way to survive. they pulled out her body and took it away. this area has seen remarkable devastation. almost every building in the
enclave is completely destroyed. we had aftershock after aftershock in which bits and pieces of the building remain standing continue to fall down. we talk about the increase in the death count. right now, over 247 people. the reason that number jumps so high because yesterday afternoon, they were able to get in heavy lifting equipment to move the rubble. prior to that, the first seven hours, the roads were not clear enough to bring in the lifting equipment you need to move rubble from stone houses. that is why that number jumped so quickly. they were able to finally move the rubble. >> a tragedy. i'm glad they are able to find some people and try to get them out to safety. that death toll rising is heartbreaking. barbie, thank you. >> tough. breaking overnight. historic peace deal in south america after five decades, 50
years of warfare, the colombia rebel and farc rebels are reaching a peace deal. declared the war is over. the colombian public will have its say on the peace deal. it can be a national referendum on october 22nd. it is not a sure thing. the u.s. navy saying four vessels violating law when they conducted a high speed intercept of the missile destroyer. a navy official said two vessels slowed and turned away after coming within 300 yards of the "ussnieche." this is two close encounters since december. rockets and drones and the capture of u.s. sailors in january. series of tornadoes in
all right. at least 20 people are injured after a cluster of storms tear across indiana. tornado sirens warning of danger. houses flattened in the city of kokomo. this house is a total loss. in the meantime, east of kokomo, this funnel cloud touched down. to the west of indianapolis, this tornado smashed homes. no deaths reported in the storms
and those injured are expected to make full recoveries. unbelieve able. more than thunderstorms in the forecast for indiana today. meteorologist derriek van dam h the latest. >> all of the dynamics were across the skies yesterday. strong upper level winds by the jet stream and the cold interaction allows for the spin in the atmosphere and allowing to drop a twister. look at the damage in kokomo. the strong upper level winds that aided in the development of tornadoes across the region. in total, we had roughly 35 tornadoes and 28 wind damage reports and several hail reports. this will move east. now our main focus on south central florida. an area of disturbed weather with a high probability of
tropical development. here is the look at the temperatures. 88 for detroit. new york, 86 and continue warm through the weekend. back to you. thank you, derek. hospitals won't bill pulse shooting survivosurvivors. the facility said the total unreimbursed costs to be $5 million. they will seek insurance and victims funds. black boxes from the el faro cargo ships outlining the final hours. ntsb looking through 26 hours of recordings. it includes audio from the bridge and weather and navagational data. it sank and all 33 on board
killed. and hope solo has been suspended from the u.s. soccer for six months for unacceptable comments at the rio olympics after sweden beat the olympics. a couple of things about the suspension. it only applies to the national team. she can still play on the club team. they just finished the olympics. they don't have big tournaments in the next six months. number three, most people don't think this is just what happened with the olympics. >> she called them cowards because of the way they won. >> they didn't take any chances. >> they won. astronomers discovered a habitable planet according to the u.s. space observatory. it has a temperature suitable for water to exist on the surface. they dubbed the planet proxima
b. it is four light years away from us. >> four light years. if you start walking now, right? >> proxima b. it sounds like a cream for an itchy scalp. donald trump with a shift on immigration. suggesting some undocumented immigrants can stay in the united states. this is a huge -- >> what happened to deportation? >> what did hillary clinton say about this? she had an exclusive interview with cnn last night. she talked for the first time about the clinton foundation revelations. we will have the latest next. and use aveeno® absolutely ageless® night cream with active naturals® blackberry complex. younger looking skin can start today. absolutely ageless® from aveeno®.
that and his latest attack line on hillary clinton. hillary clinton in the meantime gave an exclusive interview to cnn overnight. the first time she has spoken about the new e-mails released and the revelations about clinton foundation. welcome back to "early start." i'm john berman. >> i'm christine romans. let's start with this morning and donald trump with the position on immigration to go with the new line of attack against hillary clinton. he meets with minority leaders this morning. he suggested to fox news last night he would allow some undocumented immigrants to stay in the u.s. why does this matter? for more than a year since the announcement he would be candidate, trump has made clear all 11 million undocumented immigrants, every one of them, had to go. even if it took a deportation
force. not anymore. >> they will pay back taxes. they have to pay taxes. there is no amnesty. but we work with them. i had very strong people come up to me. really great, great people come up to me and they said, mr. trump, i love you. to take a person that has been here for 15 or 20 years and throw them and the family out. it is tough. i have it all the time. it's a very, very hard thing. >> so this new policy seems very like the policies laid out by jeb bush and john kasich in the primaries. he ridiculed them on the immigration policies. let's be clear. he was not pressed last night about what this would look like. he does give an immigration speech next week. initially the speech was planned for today. next week, he will have to flush all of this out. in addition to that, donald
trump held a rally in mississippi last night. he hurled a surprising charge at hillary clinton. cnn's jim acosta has latest. >> reporter: john and christine, trump has a super charged line of attack for hillary clinton in jackson, mississippi. he called her quote bigot. he said over the last couple days hillary clinton did not care about the concerns of the african-american and hispanic voters. >> hillary clinton is a bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings. worthy of a better future. she's going to do nothing for african-americans. she's going to do nothing for the hispanics. she's only going to take care of herself, her husband, her consultants, her donors. these are the people she cares
about. she doesn't care what her policies have done to your communities. >> reporter: trump previewed his shift that the up coming immigration rally will not adversely effect american jobs. he will allow the undocumented to stay in the country if they have not broken the law. >> now hillary clinton has a highly anticipated speech in nevada today. the secretary will try to tie donald to the ultra right side. this comes after a series of questions have emerged about overlap with the clinton foundation donors and the state department. overnight, hillary clinton gave her first interview on that subject to anderson cooper. she talked about her speech
today. >> donald trump called you a bigot. he called your policies a bigot. tonight he called you a big patri ot. how do you respond in. >> he is bringing the campaign mainstream. he is someone very much pedals bigotry and paranoia. >> donald trump is now indicating he would allow some immigrants to remain in the country. what do you make of the shift on this if this is his policy moving forward? >> he is trying to do a shuffle here. i think we need to look at the entire context. we need to believe him when he bullies and threatens to throw out every immigrant in the country. certainly when he changes his position three times in one day,
it sends a message that it is just a desperate effort to try to land somewhere that isn't as devastating to his campaign as his comments and his positions have been up until now. >> according to "the new york times" you told investigators that former secretary of state colin powell advised you to use a personal e-mail. he said her people are trying to pin it on me. and she was using it a year before i sent her a memo tell g tellingtelling her what i did. were you using the private e-mail server prior to the c conversati conversation? >> i have been asked many questions about e-mails. what it is when i try to explain what happened, it can sound like i'm trying to excuse what i did. there are no excuses. i want people to know that the
decision to have a single e-mail account was mine. i take responsibility for it. i apologized for it. i would do differently if i could. obviously i'm grateful the justice department said there was no basis to pursue this matter further. >> he said quote you sold favors in access for cash for people who donated to the foundation. you agreed to make changes if elected. why not make the changes now? have your husband step away from the foundation now? >> well, first, what trump has said is ridiculous. my work as secretary of state was not influenced by any outside forces. i know there's a lot of smoke and there's no fire. this ap report put it in context. it excludes nearly 2,000 meetings i had with world leaders and countless other meetings with government officials when i was secretary
of state. it looked at a small portion of my time. it drove the conclusion and made the suggestion that my meetings with melinda gates or the nobel prize winner were due to connections to the foundation instead of their status as highly respected global leaders. that is absurd. >> that has been the line the past couple days. ticking through the people she met with on the list. they are calling pay to play. the other thing here is the fact she hasn't had a press conference. anderson pressed her on that. both candidates, brian stelter, our media guy. both are allergic to questioning in a press conference. >> donald trump hasn't done an interview with anyone but fox. he sits down with sean hannity.
hillary clinton doesn't do a full press conference for more than a year. obviously, we are the press. we want it all. these candidates should answer. >> now. now. time for an early start on your money. data out shows parents are doing a better job saving for college. yeah. they are still falling short of banking the cost. fidelity college study reveals 72% of families saving for college. that is a huge jump from the 52% back in 2007. the first year of the study. the percentage of parents using 529 plans rising. >> big fan of those. >> we love those. now 42%. how much are families saving? the amount has doubled since 2007. now $3,000 a year. parents are terrified. they know they have to give their kid a leg up. >> $3,000 will pay for a week and a half of college. >> just 29% of the college funding goal by the time their
child heads off to campus. think about that. fidelity says families should save earlier and treat the savings account like a bill. contributing a steady amount. that is what i do. >> the important thing is to think about it and start early. ignoring it doesn't make it better. tremors still felt overnight in italy. we have new developments following the earthquake there. the rescue crews still out in force. we'll give you an update next. d " "y want to live om and dad forever, do you?" "well...i'm not changing." "how do i check my credit score?" "credit karma. don't worry, it's free." "credit karma. give yourself some credit."
most of what they found so far is grim, but there are also some remarkable stories of survival. i want to bring in cnn barbie nadeau in italy. >> reporter: we have a difference from yesterday which was a panic to everyone trying to dig out of the rubble using hands and whatever they could find. today, we see order. a lot of authorities, over 5,000 now in the area from all over italy from all sorts of arms of the civil protection of the army and fire brigade. they all come here to help. that has made a huge difference for survivors and those who lost loved ones. this is especially important. in this enclave, 22 people here
died. we saw them take out what we believe to be the last known body, a woman whose son was holding vigil at the wreckage of his mother's house. all you could hear was his agony and pain. they took that body out. this area, they believe there are no more known victims. 22 is a lot for the small area behind me. we see this repeated in the enclaves under the epicenter. we are a mile from the epicenter where we are standing right now. everywhere you go, it is just destruction and rubble. you see a lot of civil protection people and people in uniform and more order to the chaos. there is food and water. we did not see that yesterday. people feel things are under control and whatever chaos. >> barbie nadeau. we see the picture of the building behind you and so many
others like that throughout the region. barbie, thank you. developments in the battle with isis. the last isis held town along the border with syria and turkey. the city of jarabulus. the rebels dislodged isis fighters with a major assist from turkey which provided artillery fire and tanks and air support. this on the same day that joe biden met with the president. ben wedeman has the latest for us. >> reporter: john and christine, syrian rebel forces are in control of the town alongside the border. the operation did not take more than 24 hours. apparently isis fighters, for the most part, left the city without a fight. one rebel fighter was killed.
one wounded. this was supported by turkey. f-16s were hitting targets. and the first time since the uprising, entered the city. the operation was supported by u.s. aircraft. the americans stressed their role in the operation and of course at the moment, the u.s. is eager to repair relations with ankara after the rift that develops following the july 15th attempted coup against the government here. the turks still want the united states to hand over to them fatulah goulan who has been in the u.s. since 1999. accused by the turkish government of masterminding the coup. the vice president did not make any commitments to hand him over, but promised the united states would cooperate in the effort to bring those involved
in the coup to justice. john, christine. >> ben wedeman, thank you. 15 people and including 7 students dead in kabul. a gunman stormed the campus. it sent students and staff into hiding for hours. kabul police said it ended when two were killed in the operation. the third attacker killed when he detonated his explosive-laden car. two professors, american and australian, were abducted this month. their whereabouts are still unknown. investigators took a step back as they wait for one of the most powerful people in the word. janet yellen. what will she say this week about interest rates? we get an early start on your money next.
at least 20 people injured in a cluster of storms tearing across indiana. you see the twister off in the distance there. those are the sirens, tornado sirens warning of danger. houses were flattened in kokomo. to the east of kokomo, a funnel cloud touched down. you see pictures there. west of indianapolis, another tornado. a lot of activity on the ground. smashed buildings and homes in montgomery county. fortunately, no deaths reported in the storms. those injured are expected to make full recoveries. there are more thunderstorms in the forecast for indiana today. let's get to meteorologist derek van dam. >> in total, john and hristine,
35 tornadoes reported across the united states yesterday. majority of them, of course, across the state of indiana. 28 reports of wind and several hail reports. this is what meteorologists look for in terms of the radar signatures. we zoom in the line of storms across the kokomo, indiana region. the hook indication. that is a sign that a good likelihood a tornado would drop from the sky. that is what we look for as well as other parameters. strong upper level winds and approaching cold front created the turbulent dynamics allowing for tornadoes and supercells. we are focusing across florida. high probability of the tropical development across the leeward islands. and across new york city, looking comfortable. back to you.
thanks. the orlando hospitals treating people in the pulse nightclub shooting in june will not bill the survivors. the total costs could exceed $5 million. they plan to seek payment from other sources. insurance and a victims fund set up by the city. black box recordings from the el faro ship is now being analyzed from the recorder which was pulled from the floor in april. this includes audio from the bridge and weather information. goalkeeper hope solo has been suspended from the u.s. women's soccer team for six months for what officials say were unacceptable comments at the rio olympics after sweden eliminated the u.s. solo called the swedish team a
bunch of cowards. she can still play professionally in the national women's soccer league. >> she was mad when they lost. they did lose. >> many people say a sore loser. >> you can say that. astronomers have discovered an earth-sized potentially habitable planet closest to the sun. this has a temperature suitable for water on the surface. it named the planet proxima b. it is more than four light years away from the united states. it is close in cosmic terms, but longer than a shuttle flight. 36 minutes past the hour. let's get an early start on your money. record highs on hold until janet yellen speaks. dow futures slightly lower. a drop yesterday. lowest in the past few weeks. stocks in europe are down.
shares in asia are down. oil is up. why is the market so obsessed with janet yellen? why are they so obsessed with this woman and what she will say at the meeting in wyoming? it is because many fed officials have said the u.s. when is almost ready for an interest rate hike. inve investors want to see what she says. the u.s. treasury department issuing strong words to the eu over tax probes of u.s. companies. including apple and starbucks and amazon. the eu levels hefty fines and taxpayer cost pay for it. these investigations have implications for the united states. particularly recovery imposed by the commission would have an out size impact on u.s. companies. apple accused of avoiding eu taxes with the irish government.
if apple loses, it could have to pay billions in back taxes. amazon and starbucks under investigation for similar strategies. it could allow u.s. companies to claim foreign tax credits. that could leave taxpayers to make up for the shortfall. congress has failed to enact it. >> i don't think it will happen between now and the end of the year. "early start" continues right now. >> donald trump suggesting another big shift in his immigration policy. reversing one of the big trademarks of his campaign. it comes as he unveils a new line of attacks against hillary clinton. hillary clinton in an exclusive interview with cnn. she went on to defend herself
from a new line of donald trump attacks and to respond to new revelations from her e-mails and issues with the clinton foundation. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm john berman. >> i'm christine romans. in a few hours, donald trump meets with minority leaders. last night, donald trump suggested to fox news he would allow some undocumented immigrants to stay in the u.s. why does this matter? for more than a year since he announced his candidacy, trump has made it clear that all 11 million undocumented immigrants in the united states, all of them, had to go. to huge applause on the stump. even if it took a deportation force. to huge applause from supporters. not anymore. >> they'll pay back taxes.
there's no amnesty as such. but we work with them. >> i had very strong people come up to me. really great, great people come up to me and they said, mr. trump, i love you. to take a person that's been here for 15 or 20 years and throw them and the family out. it is so tough, mr. trump. i have it all the time. it's very, very hard thing. >> this policy seems like the ones laid out by jeb bush and john kasich in the primaries who trump beat and ridiculed. trump positions are hard to pin down. he was not pressed about this last night. he does give an immigration speech next week. that speech was initially planned for today. in addition to that, donald trump held a rally in mississippi last night and hurled a surprising new charge at hillary clinton. cnn's jim acosta has the latest. >> reporter: john and christine, donald trump has come up with a super charged line of attack
