tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN August 31, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PDT
the border, in a surprise meeting with mexico's president, only hours before his highly anticipated speech on immigration. the public face of isis killed in syria. how this high profile terrorist was struck down and the significant blow his death is dealing to isis. good morning, everyone. i'm christine romans. it's "early start." >> it indeed. i'm george howell, it's wednesday august 31st. 5:00 a.m. on the east. and breaking overnight -- donald trump announcing that he will meet today with the president of mexico. that meeting set to happen just hours before trump delivers a hotly anticipated speech, laying out the details of his immigration policy. a sitdown between trump and the mexican president is surprising to say the least, given trump's repeated vows to build a wall along the mexican border and make mexico pay for that wall. last month, mexico's president enrique pena nieto told cnn there's no way mexico will pay
for it. >> there's a way to have mexico pay for the ball but the decision is a decision of its government. >> but under no circumstances would mexico pay for that wall? >> there is no way that mexico can pay for a wall like that. >> trump has also drawn fierce attacks in mexico in the hispanic community for his sometimes heated rhetoric. cnn's phil mattingly has the latest in the campaign. >> reporter: good morning, george and christine, we knew there was going to be an important speech. an important moment in donald trump's campaign on wednesday. we just didn't know it would involve a visit to mexico. donald trump immigration speech scheduled for wednesday in arizona is still on, but what was unexpected was his visit to mexico to meet with mexican president enrique pena nieto. the president's office saying the expectations with hillary clinton and donald trump and the meeting will be private.
the donald trump also has the speech as well where we've been waiting for the explicit details of that, in everett, washington, tuesday night, he mentioned that speech. >> there's no better evidence of the fact that hillary clinton's immigration policy which brings in illegal immigrants and -- well, is that a true statement. it brings illegal immigrants and refugees to take jobs from our hard working african-american and hispanic citizens. and they want those jobs. instead of providing free health care and jobs to millions of refugees from around the world that we have no idea even are where they come from, we should rebuild our inner cities and provide jobs to struggling americans that have been struggling for years and years. >> reporter: now, there are still a lot of the logistical issues to figure out for donald trump's trip. no question about it, the secret
service being pushed hard to figure this out in such a short period of time. i'm told inside trump's team there's concern about this idea. a lot of unknown variables when you're meeting with the world leader. that said, those supporting this idea, including donald trump making very clear, this is the type of moment, a big bold moment. a big bold statement that they've reached should help him show that he is ready to operate at the highest points of the world stage. certainly an unexpected twist, guys. >> puccini behind him. very well done. let's break down trump's very big day, cnn politics managing editor zach wolf live in washington this morning. zach, here's what i really can't get my behind around about this meeting. donald trump has insulted mexico and mexicans for the past year, right?
he has clearly said there will be a wall. we're getting rid of everyone. there will be a deportation force. they're stealing our jobs. i'm going to tax exports from the mexico if there are jobs that should have been here in the u.s. in the first place. he's said all of these things, now, he's going to sit down this morning, talk to the mexican president, give a big speech tonight. it just feels like there's a big risk for him here. is he going to change his position from what we heard from the mexican president or basically inflame the rhetoric between the would? >> i don't know if he'll change his position based on what happens with the mexican president. it would be a stunning turnaround, i think. >> right. >> a stunning meeting, nonetheless. this extraordinary kind of turn of events where suddenly he's flying down there. and, you know, i think you're right, there is a risk for him. but at the same time it will make him seem, you know, more statesman-like. regardless of perhaps. he's meeting with this world
leader who he has a very real difference with. who has said say he will pay for trump's wall. i guess if you're mexico, you're going to have to be talking with mexico's president about who will pay for the wall. it's something that will elevate him and make him seem more presidential, i suppose. i'm not sure exactly what. optics are going to be. that will be very interesting. are they going to appear together? are there going to be pictures of them waving to people? that will be really interesting. >> the meeting is set to be private. it will certainly put donald trump's immigration policy front and center. and zach, it is a policy that seems to shift and change day to day. i mean, what will that mean? when we hear donald trump's speech on immigration, will it put more pressure on the details what he has to say? >> well, this speech is supposed to give us some of those details. in recent weeks he's been sort
of back and forth on this idea of a deportation force. whether or not he's going to soften essentially what do do with the more than 11 million undocumented immigrants in the country. perhaps his meeting today could inform that. but we're supposed to get some clarity. we don't necessarily think -- i think his son donald trump jr. said yesterday, we may not get clarity on all aspects at least some of them. the only constant has been the wall. that's the one thing he's stuck with start to finish. >> even though there are plenty of people who tell him there are already parts of the border that have walls. parts of the border that physically can't have a wall. people tunnel under walls. they go over the walls. donald trump said he would have anti-tunnel technology. let's listen to what donald trump jr. said last night on whether or not his dad is softening these points on immigration. >> he wasn't softening on anything. he didn't change stance on anything.
what he did was all along, he's speaking with the people. he's not lecturing like most of the politicians. he basically surveyed the room and asked what are core thoughts because i want to take into account what the people say. >> he talked about how we have to deport criminals and felons. how the united states needs to use e-verify better to guarantee that someone working in a job san american citizen or is legal to work in that job. and we need to step up deportations. that actually is all of things about both the president and mainstream republicans have all already endorsed. >> you know, trump had that interview with anderson cooper last week. if you really drill down and listen to some of the things he says, he says everybody has to leave. but it's going to take a while. we're geeg have to secure the border first. if you really start to drill down. if it takes a while, that means some of the 11 million people are staying here for a while.
is it years? it's not clear. if you really drill down and discover the facts i guess of what could be possible and what he's said recently, it starts to feel a little bit more about like a lot of other republicans have said. >> topic is immigration, all eyes will be on donald trump in mexico but zach, briefly, hillary clinton making news about some of the e-mails being released. some of them have to do with benghazi. how significant will that, or could that be to her with this race? >> you know, benghazi has been so trod over, i don't know if there's going to be some sort of smoking gun in these e-mails. that seems unlikely. it sounds like some of them could be duplicates of e-mails we've seen before. it's is not sure what exactly is inside of this. it's just drip, drip, drip, every day it's some new hillary clinton e-mail. it might not be a big
development but it's hillary clinton e-mail development. and i don't think that's good for her. >> zach wolf, thank you from washington. new jersey governor chris christie vetoes the state's $15 minimum wage bill. here's him explaining why at a supermarket in new jersey. >> this bill would make new jersey only the third state in the nation to adopt the minimum wage of $15. and it would trigger an escalation of wages to make doing business in new jersey affordable. >> doing business in new jersey is already tough. it ranks dead last in the tax climate index. new jersey residents pay nearly $7 billion in taxes. the highest property tax in the country. christie is right only two states have minimum wage laws on the books. new york by 2018. california by 2022. and washington, d.c. also passed a bill to hike pay in 2020.

leader, the he it was he who announced the sala fate before baghdadi in june 2014. he's been the driving force behind isis' international attack plotting. the driving force behind the paris attacks, the brussels attacks also those attacks during the summer at istanbul airport. he's going to be somebody very difficult to replace for them. he's also been the public voice over the last couple of years. he's issued a series of audiotapes, calling for attacks in the west from isis followers. and there's been a real big response to those audiotapes over the past couple of years, with multiple isis-inspired plots linked back to him because of those audiotape including the orlando shooting over the summer. so some modicum of justice for
those bereaved families in paris, brussels and london and many places around the world, george. >> with isis under so much pressure there with so many forces closing in, this was the person who told people around the world to carry out attacks wherever they are. and that brings me to the other question. these new reports about isis stepping up its efforts to attack the uk, paul. what more do we know about that? >> george, a senior counterterrorism official tells me that intelligence came in over the summer, indicating that isis is stepping up efforts to infiltrate operatives into the united lincoln kom to launch taxi. it's been more difficult for isis to do this than infiltrate in continental europe. because the uk is separated from the english channel. not part of the schengen zone. this intelligence really concerning authorities here. especially now in the wake of isis' calls for retaliation for the death of adnani.
after all, these operatives have been dispatched back to europe, ultimately to abu mohammad al adnani. in the short term, his death may see a greater threat. >> authorities there in uk certainly on watch for this. paul cruickshank live for us in london. the 911 calls from the pulse shooting in orlando have just been released from the orange county sheriff's office. 49 people were killed when a gunman opened fire inside the dance club. the frantic calls coming from inside the club and from people whose loved ones were trapped there. >> yes. my son was shot in the club in pulse in orlando. and he's still in the bathroom where he's bleeding and he's shot. and nobody's going in for him. >> do you know which bathroom he's in? >> he's in the pulse, he's in
the club. he's in the bathroom. >> i understand. there's several bathrooms, do you know which one he's in? >> i don't know what bathroom, no. nobody's going in for him. >> no, we have lots of help out there, they're trying to get in -- >> i know. i know. >> it's heartbreaking. orlando police have yet to announce their batch of 911 calls which include recordings of the gunman omar mateen during that massacre, pledging his a leaguence to isis. >> it's heartbreaking to appear those 911 calls. the embattled 49ers quarterback colin kaepernick getting support for his national anthem protest. in a place he probably didn't expect to find it. andy scholes with details in this morning's "bleacher report" next. reaches farther than ever. now you can stream video and music free in more places without using any of your data. from skylines to coastlines, out in the country, deep in the city.

a number of veterans showing their support for colin kaepernick as he continues to sit during the national anthem at games. the hash tag veterans for kaepernick continuing to trend. >> no matter how you feel about the colin kaepernick situation, most of us have a strong opinion about his stance including members of the military. overnight, the number one trend on social media was #veterans for kaepernick, as many veterans voicing their support for the 49ers quarterback. the theme coming for many of them they didn't fight for kaepernick to stand for the national anthem. they fought for his right to freedom of speech. meantime, kaepernick is expected to start for the 49ers in the final preseason game tomorrow
night. head coach chip kelly has said the whole kaepernick situation has not been a distraction. >> we recognize his right to express his opinions but that doesn't affect what we do here when we get here at 8:15 in the morning to when we leave at 8:00 at night. >> the 49ers will play in san diego tomorrow night. chargers will honor military members on the field. and before the third quarter, a veteran will perform "god bless america." devastating news for vikings fans. quarterback teddy bridgewater suffering a dislocated knee and torn acl during a noncontact drill yesterday at practice. the injury was so bad, they called off practice after he went down. bridgewater is now going to be out for the season. 36-year-old veteran backup sean hill is in line to start for minnesota. and the vikings now in the market for a quarterback, less than two weeks before the season. hey, tim tebow is available, however, football, not really on
his mind right now. tebow holding a workout for 28 major league teams yesterday as he tries to start a career in baseball after 12 years away from the game. tebow showed some power at the plate. but did struggle in the off-speed pitches. after the workout, he was asked at 29 years old why try baseball now. >> the second hardest decision that i ever made was giving up baseball to go to the university of florida and play football. and, you know, it wasn't a season that went by that it wasn't something that i thought about. and for me, when i -- you know, i felt like i had this opportunity, i want to take it and pursue it with everything i had. >> guys, tebow did not get great reviews from the scouts there on hand for his workout. i guarantee you someone is going to sign tebow to a minor league deal because they know one thing, he'll get fans to go to the game. >> yeah, that's a good pr move for maybe both of them.

wolf. zach, good morning. so, before donald trump makes his very important speech with immigration. he will meet with the president of mexico. they will talk about the topic, gob, wouldn't you just love to be a fly on the wall. when this topic comes up on the wall that trump says mexico will pay for. let's listen to the conversation with donald trump about that wall. >> we're going to build a great wall. the wall is going to be paid for by mexico. people are not going to be able to tunnel. we're going to have tunnel technology. it's we're going to have sorts of things. we're going to have a strong border. a wall that mexico pays for which is very easy because they're making a fortune with us. wall is peanuts compared to the money that they make. >> so, that is trump's political line. does that line change at all when he's face-to-face with the president of mexico. and if it were to change, how will that affect his base?
>> you think he won't put it quite that way when he's sitting across from the pressed mexico. >> who know. >> yeah, who knows what he'll say. it's hard to imagine these two men emerging from this meeting. the hard to have the mexican president emerging and saying, oh, yeah, i will pay for the wall after all. there's a lot of rick faut ot od trump. he can go down there and meet with the president of mexico. and seem presidential. fly to a foreign country and meet with somebody who he has sort of days agreements and give this air of i'm ready for this. afterwards, i think, they don't control what the mexican government is going to say or do. so, we'll see what happens. it's not unlike his immigration plan which seem to be changing. and evolving. the campaign strategy here, by going down to mexico so quickly
is just so interesting. >> yeah. >> and incredible, really. >> for those of you who haven't devoured your "wall street journal" there's an interesting opinion piece in the op-ed section saying trump's immigration is a winner here's why older whites cheering for walls and deportation don't represent most of the country ambiguity that donald trump has been sowing about his actual policies is really to show the other people, the majority, hey, i'm not willing to do some of those things i was going to do. donald trump jr., the candidate's son telling anderson last night his father is not softening on immigration. listen. >> he wasn't softening on anything. he didn't change the stance on anything. what he did and what he's done all along, he's speaking with the people. he's not lecturing like most of the politicians that you see. he's actually having a conversation. he basically surveyed the room and asked, hey, what are your thoughts on this because i want to take into account what the people say. >> he went on to say, zach, he
wanted to do e-verify. and all different stup that is actually being done now. some are there calling obama deporter in chief because he had 60 million removed criminal aliens. >> yeah, this is one thing where trump has built his entire campaign around his pledge for a wall. and immigration reform, it's bigger than just the border. there are all of these people living here. undocumented immigrants. 11 million of them. it's not like you can just send hem over the border overnight. trump acknowledged that in that same interview with anderson cooper. so, while he's saying everybody has to go home. the time line on that gets a little squishy. the details of this are very important and key. and when you build your campaign around such a simple pledge, the details kind of -- you know, they have a tendency to be harder to figure out. >> donald trump's message to
african-americans and the quote has been what the hell do you have to lose in the vote for trump, maybe turning that, what does he have to gain, to not only that outreach, but also what does he have to gain by going to mexico? could he in fact turn the tide with people who they have questioned -- they have a hard time considering voting for trump? >> that's true. he's giving another speech later in the week in detroit where he's supposed to court the african-american vote. it was interesting in the clip you played earlier, he said specifically the undocumented immigrants coming here and taking jobs he said from african-americans. so it's all part of this change in torngsne, i guess. if not to woo in minority voters which i find it hard to believe he will be able to do that. maybe to make more moderate white voters feel okay voting for him. >> when you look at everett,
washington, he's speaking to a crowd, there are no african-americans in the audience from what you can see behind him. i worked in seattle. it's not a high population of african-americans. but donald trump is set to meet later with some african-american leaders. >> that's a good point, when you look at that crowd and where he was in the venue, those are people building airplanes tour asian companies. tpp, they're selling planes that would benefit from the trade deals. thanks, zach. 39 minutes past the hour. donald trump says the u.s. is losing to mexico two countries very close trade partners. mexico is the third largest trading partner for the u.s. exports to mexico, $267 billion last year. imports, $316 billion. that mean a trade deficit. but it doesn't mean that the u.s.s. the loser. it means the country, the u.s. is buying more from mexico than
selling to mexico but it does factor in the gdp when you have a huge trade deficit it can take a little bit off of gdp but it also creates jobs. the tops are machinery, oil, gas, agg products. mexico is the second largest agg suppliers. fresh vegetables. wine, beer, these are opened up by nafta, something that trump has spoken out against. hundreds of billions of dollars trading hands this year. trump likely to be speaking about his trade plans with the mexican president. and the pr offensive from the u.s./mexico trade associations is 6 million american jobs. 6 million depend on trade with mexico. >> wow. following a story about a top terrorist who was killed in an air strike. the significant blow against isis. and that group'svi vow to have revenge, next.

couple of years. it was he who declared the so-called caliphate before baghdadi did in 2014. through the audiotapes, the last couple of years, he's called on followers of isis around the world to launch attacks in isis' name. they've really responded to this. only both sides of the atlantic we've seen attacks inspired by adnani's call. most recently in june in orlando. and calling for attacks during ramadan. recently, that attack in nice, following a call from him to launch attacks with vehicles. so, this is going to be a very difficult operative, christine, for them to replace. >> well, it's reported about isis stepping up its efforts to attack the uk. what are your sources telling you about that?
>> a senior intelligence official told me recent intelligence that's come in over the summer indicate that isis is stepping up their efforts to infiltrate operatives into the uk to launch attacks. it's been more difficult to get operatives back. the uk is separated by sea from the rest of europe. it's not in this schengen zone with 26 countries that don't have broader borders with europe. but officials telling me that they are discovering more and more isis operatives on continental european soil. there have been attempts to track these operatives because they're communicating securely using encryption. and this official also telling me, that cooperation between intelligence sources in the european union, is just nowhere near where it need to be given the scale of this threats. >> paul cruickshank, thank you
for that. let's go to chris cuomo coming up on "new day." >> donald trump meeting with the mexico president. that comes meeting after trump tries to clarify immigration proposals in a big speech in arizona. so what will that meeting look like? how's he going in there? what's his disposition? we're going to hear from his campaign what the goals there are. the stakes are obvious. all the inflammatory rhetoric has been outwardly criticized by mexico's president. so what's going to happen there? we're going to get great perspective from his running mate, here in indiana governor mike pence and vicente fox. >> chris cuomo. apple's stock price under pressure after the eu slapped apple with a $14 billion tax bill. this stock is probably a part of your 401(k), folks.
