7:00 am
>> her tenure has brought us only war and destruction and death. >> the equivalent of at least 10,000 tons of tnt. that's the explosive power of kim jong-un's latest nuclear bomb test. if they launch against us or our allies we'll launch against them. >> i believe the plan, if followed, has the ability to provide a turning point. good morning to you, 10:00 here in the east. >> good to be with you. the presidential elections are less than two months away. and all the candidates are out campaigning this morning. in less than an hour, mike pence will speak. >> hillary clinton and donald trump trading jabs. including an ad by hillary clinton. >> i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. >> he's a race baiting
7:01 am
xenophobic religious bigot. >> he's not a serious adult. >> i can't vote for donald trump given the things he said. >> trump should not be supported. >> i believe he's disqualified himself to be president. >> i just cannot support donald trump. >> all right. i want to bring in scott mclain. what is hillary clinton and her camp saying about this? >> reporter: yeah, so this is getting plenty of reaction, obviously. what she said about the comments from a fundraiser last night. perhaps it was aimed at galvanizing her base but it's firing up donald trump supporters, here's what she said. >> to just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of trump supporters into what i call the basket of deplorables.
7:02 am
right? the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophob xenophobic, islam phobic, you name it. there are people like that and he has lifted them up. >> reporter: basket of deplorable is a trending topic on twitter. you don't have to look far to see outrage. breitbart that steve bannon is calling this hillary clinton's 47% moment, referring to mitt romney's infamous comments during the 2012 campaign. >> let's talk about the reaction from the trump campaign first of all. i understand that -- and i see that donald trump is tweeting about it. >> reporter: yeah, and first off
7:03 am
i should mention the people here that we have spoken to as well, a lot of them, obviously, are donald trump supporters. some of them are offended. some of them aren't offended they think that hillary clinton is playing to her base. all of them say this is simply untrue. now, donald trump, as you mentioned has also tweeted this saying wow, hillary clinton was so insulting to my supporters, millions of amazing hardworking people. i think it will cost her at the polls. he also tweeted, you know what's deplorable attacking hard working americans upset because their jobs have been sent abroad by politicians like hillary clinton. >> yeah, that one coming from donald trump jr. there on twitter. have we heard this morning yet from hillary clinton? >> reporter: yes, so hillary clinton doesn't actually have any campaign events scheduled for today. so it's unclear what her reaction will be or whether she'll try to clarify. so far her campaign is not backing away from these comments. in fact, her traveling press
7:04 am
secretary had this to say, saying obviously, not everyone supporting trump is part of the alt right leaders but alt right leaders are with trump and appear to make up half his crowd when you observe the tone of his events. to be clear the alt right is an anti-immigrant movement. the trump campaign says they do not support the alt right. mike pence will be here later. a lot of people will be wondering if he mentioned clinton's comments. >> thank you for bringing us the late latest. this morning, two major international stories happening. playing out both with huge implications in the race for the white house. first this potentially ground breaking deal on u.s. russia cooperation in syria. and then new outrage after north korea claims it successfully tested its more powerful nuclear device. let's go to geneva with john
7:05 am
kerry and sergei lavrov said for the first time are working for an agreement in syria. the agreements comes after months of talks. and at the time when the u.s. russia relationship is a bit frosty. >> today, the united states and russia are announcing a plan which we hope will reduce violence, ease suffering, and resume movement towards a negotiated peace and a political transition in syria. >> cnn has live team coverage of all these developing stories. i want to start with cnn international diplomatic editor nic robertson. he's live in geneva for us. let's talk about the details of the cease fire and the timeline here. is it safe to say we won't know how well it's going for at least seven days? >> reporter: you know, when
7:06 am
sergei lavrov talked about it yesterday he said it would be built in 48 hour chunks. we'll get an idea maybe after 48 hours, absolutely seven days. there's a lot of other things are supposed to kick in after seven days. the united states and russia working together jointly in these joint centers. military centers to combine forces for target alt nuse ru, former al qaeda affiliate and isis. that is a key transition period. we should be able to see quickly. do the guns fall silent as the sun goes down on monday evening. what we're seeing today, what's being reported from syria today, is still not. the syrian government is bombing in places we understand it will not be allowed to bomb as of monday night. so you know, the questions that are being asked right now are, what are the punitive measures? what are going to be the controls? if the assad government doesn't
7:07 am
play by what's been agreed here, who is going to tell it and make it an essentially push it into compliance. that's a concern for the opposition. but after seven days, if it is working, then you can begin to look forward to a political transition. there's no doubt the way this is being viewed across the board, everyone involved opposition, u.n., the russians, obviously, secretary of state john kerry, this is the best opportunity they've had in a while to end some of the suffering that's going on in syria right now. >> nic, what are some of the things people are saying about their confidence in this process and the u.s. working with russia on this? because that is rare, let's say, to see those two countries come together. >> reporter: yeah, it would certainly be a new dimension for the united states to work together militarily air strikes
7:08 am
against isis. of course, that's key both countries are absolutely committed to fighting terrorism. the problem is they define it differently. for russia, a big issue has been, well, they've been saying to the united states over the past many months, okay, tell us who the terrorists are. and that's what the russians are expecting on day seven. they're expecting the separation on the battlefield between the moderate rebel groups, the united states and others have been supporting. the problem there is, that these moderate groups have been relying on alt nuse rufor the extra fire power. separating them, that's going to be a big challenge. but, yeah, a huge step forward for the united states and russia to combine efforts here. >> nic robertson thank you so much for the update. we appreciate it. >> now to the rise in global furry after north korea's funning claim it detonated its most powerful nuclear device
7:09 am
yet. will ripley is live in tokyo for us. the question here about north korean leader kim jong-un's intentions is his intention to launch a nuclear strike, to sell these weapons on the black market? to use them as leverage? what is the goal as he gets closer to potentially development, full development of these weapons? >> reporter: well, the first point you made about launching nuclear strike, most analysts agree that's highly unlikely. if you're looking at things from the perspective of his regime, this nuclear arsenal is about self-preservation and keeping the regime strongly in control. how would nuclear weapons that lead to diplomatic isolations, how would they accomplish this? he wants to project power abroad, yes, but also and perhaps most importantly to his audience at home. including the country's ruling elite who might question whether a 30 something young leader should be guiding the country of
7:10 am
34 mill whereion people. north korea sells weapons to terrorist organizations, it could happen with the nuclear war heads. the hope is for international leverage to force the united states and united nations to acknowledge north korea as a nuclear state. even though president obama says that won't happen. we've seen the weapons increasing very rapidly, not only in size, but in range and accuracy. these weapons can now hit anywhere in the korean peninsula, anywhere here in japan, they can go down to guam where the u.s. has assets. some ballistics could hypothetically reach the mainland united states. the accuracy is still very much in question. south korea's foreign minister calling for more sanctions. all this advancement has happened despite heightened international sanctions, even sanctions naming king jong unhimself. >> will ripley who has reported

7:14 am
donald trump is now dialing back his praise for russian president vladmir putin. meanwhile, clinton is slamming him for calling the russian president a stronger leader than
7:15 am
president obama. also, earlier this week senator tim kaine attacked trump for what he calls his bizarre fascination with a strong man like putin and basher al assad and kim jong-un. let's bring in atlanta mayor kasim reed. josh rogen and a washington post columnist and jack kingston. good morning to all of you. let me start with you, congressman. after what we've heard from senator kaine, from secretary clinton, how do you explain this affinity that donald trump has expressed for those leaders we just mentioned? >> well, it's not an affinity admiring what they're doing. he said they're strong leaders, barack obama started out his presidency apologizing on an international tour apologizing for the united states. he has made meaningless threats. such as if you cross the red
7:16 am
line in syria this is what wee going to do. we're going to tough on our allies, end terrorism, that isis is a jayvee team and we'll be tough on them. he's saying you got a strong leader, if you're going to deal with a strong leader you've got to be strong. >> they're also dictators. >> and they're strong. they may be dictators but they're -- >> is that what you want the republican nominee to say? they're dictators but at least they're strong? is that the argument? >> he's saying you need a strong leader to stand up. when hillary clinton -- >> that's not what he's saying at all. >> hold on, mr. mayor. >> i'm on the team now, so we get a lot of advice from dedemocradgood democrats. he said you need a tough guy to stand up to tough people. hillary clinton said she was going to end the test in north korea. she said that in 2009. well, that's really done a really good job. she's worked that out.
7:17 am
>> we'll go into details on north korea. mr. mayor, i want you to respond to that. >> the bottom line is that don trump has constantly praised vladmir putin. when my friend, congressman jack kingston was running for the united states senate and lost, he never would have appeared on a russian propaganda station downgrading and denigrating u.s. generals while he was running for office. his behavior is reprehensible and has been the entire time. and i believe that if don trump would actually show his tax returns we would have much greater insight into why he praises vladmir putin and is such a fan of russia. but because he won't disclose his tax returns in an open and transparent fashion, don trump won't even meet dick nixon's standards. dick nixon shows his tax returns to the american people. but because don trump won't, we will not have the kind of insight that the american people
7:18 am
deserve into his intimate relationship with russia. it didn't just occur. let's be real clear for a moment since my friend took his time to talk. the only direct action during the republican national convention that don trump and their leadership got involved in was relaxing the republican platform as it relates to the united states relationship between russia. >> let me -- >> this is a vital issue and don trump needs to open his tax returns so that we can see what is the genuine relationship between don trump, vladmir putin, and russia. >> all right. >> and the american people, i think will have -- >> josh, let me bring you in here. is this something the clinton campaign calls unprecedented they've never seen anything before like this. is this, indeed unprecedented from your reporting? is this more than just donald trump giving compliments back to a leader who gave some to him? >> yes, yes, it's much deeper
7:19 am
than just his compliments for vladmir putin. donald trump has been doing business in russia and attempting to do business in russia in 1987 since he went to moscow in what was then the soviet union. he had a campaign chairman who was a pro putin lobbyist. defining leadership in terms of strength is the simplest, most sort of unserious way you can define leadership. setting that aside for one second, the point here is that when donald trump talks about russia, he talks in terms that are exactly the same as russian state propaganda positions when he talks about crimea, ukraine, nato. when he talks about united states democracy being rigged these are things that fit the russian propaganda line. we have the republican presidential candidate, parroting russian propaganda talking points. it's weird, it's sort of unprecedented. it's very, sort of destruct to
7:20 am
the actual serious debate over u.s. russia policy and it's clear that donald trump -- >> maybe we -- >> hold on. i want to introduce north korea. i want to bring up north korea. and donald trump, this year, has discussed in defense against north korea's growing nuclear resources that potentially japan and south korea should also be nuclear powers. let's get a reminder. let's watch. >> so north korea has nukes. japan has a problem with that. i mean, they have a big problem with that. maybe they wouldn't in fact be better off if they defend themselves from north korea. >> with nukes? >> including with nukes, yes, including with nuke. >> and south korea with nuke? >> south korea is right next door. just so you understand. >> a nuclear arms race in -- >> you already have it. >> there was a major global response to that suggestion. japan said they didn't want them. congressman, is a nuclear south
7:21 am
korea still on the table considering what we just saw this week from north korea? >> first of all. that wasn't a statement of policy, that was a statement of we need to have our allies well-armed to defend themselves and let north korea know we'll stand up to them. i want to emphasize -- >> hold on -- >> are you kidding me? >> you can't skip by this, congressman. >> it was not a statement of policy. >> let me ask you -- hold on hold on. congressman, is donald trump still open to a nuclear south korea? >> i think what he's open to is making sure that our allies are defended and that they are strengthened -- >> respectfully that's not the question -- >> it doesn't matter it's not a statement of policy. what he was saying is i'm not going to cut and run on you the way this obama and the hillary clinton administration has. remember, the hillary clinton when she was being -- doing her hearing for secretary of state in 2009, she said we're going to
7:22 am
stop the nuclear testing in north korea. we're going to have a coalition, we're going to get an international group together and put pressure on them. have the six party talks, six country talks all around it, it's more talk and no action. >> joshua -- was that received as a statement of policy? >> yeah, i talk today japanese and south korean leaders they're appalled and saddened by the fact that the trump plan for non-proliferation is proliferation of nuclear weapons. it doesn't make sense at all. it contradicts decades of u.s. and allied policy -- >> remember -- >> hold on -- >> we're going -- >> it's not a statement of policy. >> i want to give the -- >> this is exactly the reason that 115 republican defense specialists are supporting secretary clinton and not having anything to do with donald trump. they're unhinged statements the kind of unhinged statements he
7:23 am
makes weakens our international policy and shows a blatant lack of support for our allies in south korea and in japan. it's exactly what he should not be president of the united states. >> we got to wrap it there -- >> remember -- >> congressman, thank you very much, we're going to -- >> you can't name them though. >> absolutely. >> congressman -- >> looking for -- >> thank you very much. and we want to make sure you watch on sunday. exclusive interview with hillary clinton for her thoughts on 9/11, terror, national security, on state of the union, 9:00 a.m. eastern on cnn. be sure to watch the cnn special, 9/11, 15 years later. it's this sunday. 8:00 p.m. eastern. also, again on cnn. ♪ mapping the oceans. where we explore. protecting biodiversity. everywhere we work. defeating malaria. improving energy efficiency. developing more clean burning natural gas. my job? my job at exxonmobil? turning algae into biofuels. reducing energy poverty

i've been saying now for quite some time that the key to syria is bringing russia to the table. believing that kerry was actually involved in those negotiations. and then seeing, you know, just last night that, in fact, we do have what hopefully will be a lasting cease fire. >> you don't want us there is my point. you don't want us over there wherever over there might be. is it fair to say that gary johnson believes every time we open a base overseas we put more american lives in jeopardy and not make us more safe? >> well, you know, we are there right there. we're going to honor all treaties and obligations. you can't wave a magic wand and not recognize that we are there. we're there in the first place because we do support regime change. which i think has resulted in what is happening right now in syria. that started with iraq and

a lot of outrage this morning against one of the largest banks in the countries. federal regulators say employees at wells fargo created millions of fake bank accounts. in some cases the bank allegedly charged customers fees on those accounts. now the company has fired more than 5,000 employees. and it's facing millions of dollars in fines. let's bring in cristina alesci. i know people are watching it.
7:43 am
what do customers need to do at this point? >> this is outrageous. customers are being told by the -- one of the agencies that settled this matter to -- not to really worry. because as part of the settlement, wells fargo has to reach out to you to let you know if there's something wrong with your account or if there was one of these fake ghost accounts created without you even knowing about it. the reality is, now that trust is totally eroded -- i wouldn't discourage this. call wells fargo to find out what is going on with your bank account. they should have scaled up the number of people available to help you sort it out. to be clear, this is not the fault of consumers. consumers could have done nothing to prevent what happened here. you had some employees go as far as creating fake e-mail addresses for people to open up these accounts. it just defies what you would
7:44 am
think a reputable bank would do. this is the biggest bank by market value. this has a main street image, most people see wells fargo and they don't think of big bad wall street. they think of main street, that's my local bank, where i go to get my loan, my mortgage. this is a complete erosion of trust. the settlement that was negotiated makes it hard for people to go ahead and sue the bank. it's a really tough spot for consumers. >> all right. thank you so much for walking us through it. we appreciate it. all right, according to my next guest, millions of black voters will not support hillary clinton because she's a woman. he says their religious beliefs prohibit it. he himself is a black pastor and a trump supporter. he'll explain, next. if you're searching other travel sites to find a better price...

a pastor who is supporting donald trump is under fire for a comment that some are calling sexist. pastor darryl scott took to twitter to say this. millions of black apostolic don't agree with women pastors much less women presidents they will never vote for hillary. joining me is the pastor and bishop. pastor scott, i'm sorry, let's start with you, yeah.
7:49 am
i know that 140 characters doesn't give us the time and space we want to make an argument. take 20 or 30 seconds and tell us what you mean by because she's a woman black apostolics will not vote for her. >> well, there is a huge segment of christianity, one that's pentecostles or apostolics who hold to a literal view, interpretation of the scriptures, as a result their policy is that women cannot hold offices in the church. they use the scripture from the apostle paul that says thou shalt not suffer a woman to teach nor to usurp authority over a man. some asupply thpply that only t church. can't be a bishop or pastor or hold a position of authority. i know some i've discussed with on a number of occasions that hold to that interpretation in
7:50 am
all parameters of leife. they told me we would never vote for a woman. this was during the republican primaries. they weren't supporting trump. >> let me take this to bishop trout. you're not a supporter of hillary clinton. what do you make of what you're hearing from pastor scott there will be many, he says millions, but many who will not vote for because she's a woman? >> i'm a fifth generation apostolic. and i'll say this about the apostolic church. it's evolved over the years to the point that we have now pastors and even women bishops in the apostolic movement. the other thing to consider is that the apostolic church is made of 75% to 80% women. but gender is really a distraction the real issue to me about hillary is this, last year, april 2015, at a women's
7:51 am
national or worldwide summit, she declared that the church needs to change its views on abortion. that, to me, is more dangerous than her gender. >> you would say that is the primary reason you're not supporting her, bishop? >> exactly. she's challenged the church to change itself. and that takes a lot of hubris to do so. >> let me come to you, pastor scott. you tweeted this out four or five times on the day you sent it out. on one of the tweets you said more blacks will vote for trump than people think. are you looking for those votes from black apostolics who are not going to support hillary clinton because she's a woman? >> once again, i didn't want to make a blanket indictment against all apostolics. i know for a fact there are a number of apostolics that -- they don't hold to those ultraconservative or ultratraditional views.

it's that i've had conversations with those from major denominations that have stated because she's a woman they cannot -- >> do you welcome those votes for people who won't vote for hillary clinton because she's a woman? >> i welcome any vote for donald trump because he's my candidate of choice. i do know there is a huge undercurrent of black americans that fear the backlash and ostracism that would come from their public support of donald trump. they've told me in private. that's from pretty big names. they said i don't want to risk losing any of my supporters but i'll vote for trump. i have a term i coined for them. they're the incog negroes. >> let me come to you bishop trout. we talked earlier about the birther claim from 2011. donald trump apparently now believes that barack obama was born in the united states.
7:53 am
let's listen to two of his supporters. >> does he believe he would succeed a legitimate president? >> donald trump believes now that he was born in the united states. >> do you think it's time for donald trump to acknowledge that all that birther nonsense was a mistake and to apologize so that african-american voters to whom he's reaching out might be more willing to listen to his message? >> i think that would be a good idea, absolutely. >> so bishop trout, do you believe that your congregants would appreciate hearing from donald trump on this issue? that he now believes that barack obama was born in the u.s. from his own mouth? >> well, i think our congregants would like to hear from hillary who was the one who brought it up in the first place. >> let me bring you back to facts here. it was mark penn who was one of her advisors and strategists not from hillary clinton herself. i hear your point. the point of my question was, donald trump is now running for president. donald trump sent investigators
7:54 am
to hawaii. donald trump put up $5 million bounty for information about a birth certificate should donald trump now apologize and speak from his own mouth, not through surrogates or supporters he believes the president was born in hawaii? >> that's up to him to make that decision. i don't think it will necessarily sway a lot of votes. the people that are invested in his campaign are not necessarily going to be moved by the fact of the birther -- in fact he's running against hillary and not obama. >> okay, let me come to you, pastor really quickly there pastor scott. why haven't we heard from donald trump on this? although his supporters and surrogates are saying he now believes that the president was born in the u.s.? >> i'm not going to say believes i'm going to say he accepts the fact the president -- >> he doesn't believe it, is that what you're telling me. >> i said he grundgingly accept it. there was a poll that 43% people
7:55 am
believe he was born outside the united states. >> if what you're saying is true, then 130 million people would be wrong because the president was born in hawaii. we got to wrap it hear, pastor, bishop we've got to wrap it. it's scary when the lights go out. people get anxious and my office gets flooded with calls. so many things can go wrong. it's my worst nightmare. every second that power is out, my city's at risk.
