tv   Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans  CNN  December 22, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PST

2:00 am
aggravating and frightening is you say this man's papers finally came through yesterday. >> reporter: yes, absolutely. here is a picture of him here in one of the tabloids in berlin. they knew him. they did nothing. that is not exactly right. he was being tracked. he was released because there was an extradition order to tunisia. he did not have the right papers. the authorities were waiting for that. they got a passport yesterday. of course, that was too late. you see what happened over my shoulder here at the market which is reopening. concrete blocks surrounding it trying to come back to normal. the manhunt continues. we heard a search of a refugee house in western generrmany whe he spent time. we don't know the results of
2:01 am
that. this is one of the searches going on in western germany. it is a manhunt involving hundreds of german police. it is going beyond the authorities on alert across europe. christine. >> chris burns for us. this man is a hardened criminal. they knew who he was and now he is on loose wanted for that attack. thank you, chris. donald trump speaking out for the first time on the berlin cam pa rampage. pif ovoting away from the earli news release of slaughter of christians. from the latest on that, let's bring in jeff zeleny at trump's mar-a-lago estate in palm beach. >> reporter: christine and miguel, donald trump making the first comments of the rampage at the christmas market in berlin. he met with the senior advisor michael flynn and array of generals trying to show a sign
2:02 am
of strength significaaling he i top of the heightened security. >> it is an attack of humanity. it has to be stopped. >> reporter: attack on humanity. donald trump making the case his team is going to go aggressively after the fight against terrorism. giving no specifics after meeting with advisors here in mar-a-lago. trump met on wednesday with two key ceos. from the boeing company. of course, you remember this month that donald trump going after the boeing company saying they are charging the american taxpayer too much to refurbish air force one. he invite td the ceo here for a meeting. he faced the cameras and said he would try to bring the costs down. trump says this is something he wants to do when he takes office to bring business leaders in. part public relations and part negotiation.
2:03 am
clearly wanting to make the case he is trying to fight for the american taxpayer. part of that populous appeal. now advisors to trump say he will take most of the next several days off. he still have two key cabinet positions to fill. veterans and department of agriculture. he takes office 29 days from today. miguel and christine. jeff zeleny. we are learning more. this is filling out the people who will have the ear of donald trump. he is naming billionaire investor carl icahn to the investigati cabinet. he will find and get rid of rules and laws that he thinks hamper businesses. icahn told cnn, i'm not anti-regulation, but anti-the stupidity of the regulations and it has just run amuck. he wants to let entrepreneurs to secure jobs.
2:04 am
the committee saying this is a quid pro quo 25 years in the making. in the early 1990s, icahn came to trump's rescue. icahn has a long history of financing trump casinos. the transition team is said to be talking about quickly imposing tariffs on foreign imports using executive action soon after he takes office. some fear it would ignite a trade war. sources differ on whether talk of tariffs is serious or a trial balloon to gauge. trump named economist peter navarro to head the national trade council.
2:05 am
navarro is regarded as a hawk with long, sharp talons on china. >> even the ministry of china was asked about it. >> a subtle indication. another job the administration is working to fill. it is turning out to be a bit of a struggle. the former ambassador to the u.n. john bolton. is unclear if he can get enough votes in the senate foreign relations committee. even bolton's boss rex tillerson has reservations about him. the candidates search is moving to other less known names. donald trump's adult sons removed in the board of a charity poised to give access to the president in exchange for
2:06 am
donations. they were listed on the board of the opening day foundation. tmz found a draft of the invite on january 21st. it offered a private reception with the president and then a hunting trip with the sons for $500,000 or $1 million donations. since, the new invite has been put out with no reference to the hunting trip or meeting with the president. let's break down all of the latest on the trump transition. we are joined by political reporter tal kopan live in washington. you have to feel trump is at mar-a-lago feeling vindicated. he has markets up. strongly on the trump bump as they are calling it. when you look at what happened in berlin in particular, this horrible case of a hardened criminal in prison and illegally
2:07 am
in germany. they let him go on a paper work snafu. this is the thing that donald trump has been saying i'm right. i'm right. to be strongly, strongly cautious about muslim immigration. in a way, donald trump, the news flow seems to be validating him at this point. >> yeah. i think donald trump is very good at spinning any news cycle as validation. keep in mind, every time there was an attack of this sort, we often heard an "i'm right" statement come from the trump cap camp. he will have to be careful as we move forward through his presidency. he is ascribed blame. some will tell you there is a possibility that we cannot stop
2:08 am
everything. he has had things to point to as clear victories especially on the economic issues. he is very good to say look what i have done. this is a clear example of my work. >> tal, does the transition seem to be calming down and get into a bit of a rhythm? you have donald trump to come out and say he would continue with his efforts to have the muslim registry and sort of the extreme vetting of muslims. the statement of slaughter of christians with regard to the attacks in europe. they walked all of that back. you are seeing more moderated statements coming out of his camp. what is your sense of how the transition is changing as we he move closer? 29 days until he is president of the united states. >> there are a few levels on which to unpack that question.
2:09 am
the most public version of this, of course, is the -- as many mentioned, almost reality show like search for cabinet. that is different from the past presidents and what we have seen. behind the scenes his staff is meeting with agencies and trying to get their arms around a massive bureaucracy and trying to figure out what is going on. they have to report back to the teams who leads the agencies. we have little insight into that process. you are right. they put out statements and i don't know if we can say they moderated them. they are barely day or two old. when asked about them, trump was confused by the question. it is not unreasonable for a president-elect to not approve every press release personally.
2:10 am
there does seem to be a bit of a messaging disconnect. >> we know more about who is advising him. peter navarro who is well known china hawk. somebody who spent much of his career saying china is getting the best of the united states. carl icahn, an activist investor. a billionaire. known donald trump for years. you look at the cabinet. a billionaire cabinet. my question is at what point -- this is really incredible. the entire george w. bush cabinet at the time, the entire cabinet is worth 1/10 of this cabinet. which they be friendly to business? does that mean friendly to business is good to workers? that is the question. >> that is the big question. forgive me, the billion dollar
2:11 am
question. one of the things for the way trump is assembling his cabinet is they have differing views on key issues. he has run as a strong immigration hawk, but some picks involved in discussions about immigration have said things about it that are slightly different than the hawkish members of the cabinet. the justice department is in line with that. the labor nominee has said things in line with immigration. it is interesting to see once he has assembled this team what the disagreements are within them. remember, different agencies have to work together on certain topics like labor and treasury and commerce. you have to put together as the obama administration calls it a whole government approach to some things. we have to watch these and what the actual administration policy is once implemented versus the rhetoric. it is still very tbd.
2:12 am
>> tal kopan. thank you. plan to repeal the north carolina bathroom bill derails. we will tell you what is behind that collapse next. irec at& am live tv ae data-free. join directv today starting at $35/month. no extra monthly fees. ♪ i really did save hundreds on my car insurance with geico. i should take a closer look at geico... geico has a long history of great savings and great service. over seventy-five years. wait. seventy-five years? that is great. speaking of great, check out these hot riffs. you like smash mouth? uh, yeah i have an early day tomorrow so... wait. almost there. goodnight, bruce. gotta tune the "a."

2:14 am
2:15 am
north carolina lawmakers meet, but cannot agree to repeal the so-called bathroom bill. people in the gallery chanted shame. lawmakers went home after the session was adjourned. we get more now from cnn's nick valencia. >> reporter: miguel and christine, after nine hours of caucuses and lawmakers going in and out of recess, the north carolina legislature was unable to reach consensus on whether or not to repeal house bill 2. the legislature adjourned without conclusion. house bill 2 stands as law in north carolina.
2:16 am
the republican leadership pointed at state democrats for playing politics. democrats pointed back at the republicans. it was reported earlier this week that both party leadership agreed to broker a deal. in charlotte f tif the council able to rescind the deal, that would clear the way for house bill 2. that is anything but what happened here in raleigh today. there has been no shortage of drama with the republicans and democrats here in the state. that promises to continue. there still is no clear date set on when they will take up this special session to discuss house bill 2 next. miguel. christine. nick, thank you. the deal togethth toll rising t the explosioni of mexico city. the families are in shock as the search continues for victims which may be trapped under the rubble. this as investigators continue to find the cause of the blast.
2:17 am
we have leyla santiago with more. >> reporter: christine and miguel, it is the unknown that is feeding the anxiety and desperation for families still searching for loved ones. it is also the unknown that is really fueling the investigation for a lot of people here that are sorting through the debris trying to figure out the cause. the officials are not commenting on that right now. they told me they are focusing on the dozens of victims that they are now trying to support as a result. we should mention this is massive market. ten football fields and 400 vendors all had permits at the time of the explosion. this is where families and children came for christmas and new year's eve to get ready for the holiday season.
2:18 am
this is now an area where there's a search for answers. miguel, christine. >> leyla, thank you. south korea's constitutional court opening hearings this morning on the impeachment of president park. impeached for her role in the scandal. prosecutors allege she shared classified information with a close friend who used their relationship to embezzle millions of dollars intended for charity. united nations security council secretary-general ban ki-moon will run to replace park. and queen elizabeth and husband philip postponing travel plans. buckingham palace says they both have cold and are not traveling to norfolk. we have max foster in london with more. she is 90 and he is 95. this is a concern. >> reporter: this is a concern. they have to be caucukacautious.
2:19 am
tigly for him because he is 95 years old. the train station was set for them to get on the train. and the royal protection officers were ready to go. literally minutes before arriving at the train station, it was all cancelled. a vacuum of information. the palace announced a couple hours later they both have heavy colds and not traveling. the question is will they go today or tomorrow morning? the tradition of going to sandringham has continued for decades. this is something the family looks forward to. i'm told she is determined to go. at the moment, the flag, her personal flag is playing above buckingham palace. we know she is in. and as to whether or not they are feeling better, if the flag comes down and they head to
2:20 am
norfolk or stay here. that is a signal of there is more than of a concern of their health. the palace is playing it down slightly. they are just colds. whether or not there are complications that come with them. >> we hope they get better soon and wish them a happy christmas. >> i love the phrase happy christmas. heavy cold. i have a terrible cold. duke star grayson allen in a controversial play. will that bench him? we have coy wire with the bleacher report next. and i'm going to draw mustaches on you all. using the pen instead of fingers, it just feels more comfortable for me. be like, boop! it's gone. i like that only i can get into it and that it recognizes my fingerprint. our old tablet couldn't do that. it kind of makes you feel like you're your own person,

2:24 am
oklahoma's football coach speaking out for the first time after video released of a star player punching a player two years ago. >> coy wire with the bleacher report. >> good morning. coach bob stoops and others facing a lot of criticism for the punishment they gave joe mixon. the video of the incident released by mixon's attorney. the woman shoving and punching her in the head and he broke several bones in her face. he did not serve jail time nor lose scholarship. he received communicaty service and received punishment for the team. >> two and a half years later, it is fair to say it is not
2:25 am
enough. and that's positive in that is the way the things have gone in the last two and a half years that really the only thing that is acceptable anymore is dismissal. >> the woman has a civil lawsuit pending against mixon. oklahoma plays in the sugar bowl on january 2nd. mixon will play. duke's grayson allen at the center of controversiy again. he sticks his leg out and trips an opponent. that is the third time he has intentionally tripped someone. he got a technical foul and on the sideline, he threw a temper tantrum. on the bench, coach k said it is unacceptable. he did not say if he would punish allen. and steve smith, one of might have favorites, getting into the christmas spirit. he dressed like an elf for the news conference. the team playing the pittsburgh
2:26 am
steelers on christmas day. don't expect a lot of holiday spirit in that one. >> it will be a joy. not a lot of peace. >> that will be a huge game. the winner likely clinching a spot in the playoffs. loser is eliminated. >> that's quite an elf on the shelf. >> that is becoming a thing. i saw someone in a pikachu costume earlier. >> maybe part of your "early start" show. >> tomorrow? >> i'll dress as me. you can be something. >> i will be a unicorn. >> i'll do it. don't mess with me. >> nice to see you. 26 minutes past the hour. the suspect in the berlin truck attack, no stranger to terror investigators. we have more on the troubling past and the manhunt ahead.
2:27 am
2:28 am
2:29 am
2:30 am
this might just be the most wanted man in europe right now. the suspect in the deadly berlin truck attack. donald trump's three-prong plan to save jobs. taxes, regulation or delegislation and energy. and look at this. a collapse of a deal in north carolina. both parties blame the other as the deal to repeal the bathroom bill just falls apart. welcome back to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm miguel marquez. nice to be in your shadow. it is 30 minutes past the hour. an intense manhunt universider r this man. the suspect in the berlin truck attack which left 12 people dead and 48 injured. anis amri. a 24-year-old from tunisia who emigrated illegally to europe
2:31 am
and denied asyluasylum. he was released because authorities could not establish his identity beyond doubt. german authorities are offering a 100,000 euro award. he may be armed and dangerous. joining us live from berlin with the latest on the details of the investigation is chris burns. good morning, chris. >> reporter: good morning, miguel. in fact, what are you talking about there. we are seeing tabloid headlines. "why was he not kept in prison longer." anis amri was held for some time. was supposed to be sent back to tunisia. his native. they did not have the right papers for him until yesterday. so they had to let him go. that is what some of the outrage is today as we see the headlines today. anis amri had been a criminal in tunisia as well as italy. he spent four years in an
2:32 am
italian prison. charged with assault here in germany. on the run at the moment where there is a manhunt across germany and europe. we have seen searches. one in western germany at a refugee house where anis amri was residing for a while. that's where it stands right now. the german authorities are keeping their cards close to the vest at the moment. >> far right politicians across europe already blaming angela merkel for this. saying she has blood on her hands because of what happened. what is the sense of the poli c politics here? does this -- she was being blamed because he was one she allowed in. it doesn't seem to be the case. will she bear the brunt of the blame here? >> reporter: that's the thing. one aspect of this to keep in mind, yes, this man was not a refugee, per se.
2:33 am
he was to be sent back. he had been here in europe for years. he did not come with that wave of refugees last year. so that is one argument that you can have on merkel's side. on the other side, she is facing criticism from the far right which demonstrated outside her chancellory last night. also within her coalition and governing coalition, some are asking for tougher policy against refugees. that is what we see play out with elections coming up in spring. local elections in the spring and in the fall, national elections. i might mention life is trying to come back to normal here. we are seeing at the market which is reopening today. more media than anything else. they are opening. there are concrete blocks laid around it. a lot of armed police inside the market. they are trying to bring it back.
2:34 am
i'm seeing a bit of festivities. three guys with santa hats walk by, miguel. maybe more festivity between now and christmas eve. >> the christmas markets a way of life. chris burns, thank you. donald trump speaking out for the first time on the berlin rampage calling attack on humanity. the president-elect pivoting from the earlier description whichcharacterized it as a slaughter of christians. we have jeff zeleny with more from mar-a-lago. >> reporter: christine, donald trump making the first statements. as he met with mar-a-lago with the senior advisor michael flynn and generals trying to show a sign of strength. signaling that he is on top of the alert during the holiday season. this is what he said about that attack. >> it is an attack on humanity. attack on humanity. and it has to be stopped.
2:35 am
>> reporter: an attack on humanity. donald trump making the case his team is going to go aggressively after the fight of terrorism. giving no specifics after meeting with top advisors here in mar-a-lago. trump also met with two key ceos. from the boeing company. you will remember donald trump going after the boeing company saying they are charging the american taxpayer too much to refurbish air force one. he invited the boeing ceo to mar-a-lago for a face-to-face meeting and he faced the cameras and said he would try to bring the costs down. trump advisors say this is something the president-elect wants to do once he takes office. to bring business leaders in and part public relations and part negotiation. clearly wanting to make the case he is fighting for the american taxpayer. part of the populous appeal there. advisers to trump say he will take the next several days off. he still have two key positions
2:36 am
left to fill. veterans administrations and department of agriculture. then his cabinet will be full. he takes office 29 days from today. miguel and christine. thank you, jeff zeleny. the transition team is said to be talking about imposing tariffs on foreign imports using executive action after mr. trump takes office. that is according to multiple sources. it is a prospect which is lance armstrong which is alarming business groups. sources differ on when talk on tariffs is just talk or a trial balloon to gauge reaction. >> his plan to save american jobs starts with the new white house national trade council. one goal, stop the exodus of u.s. jobs to china and mexico. mexico has $3 an hour for labor which is $20 an hour in the
2:37 am
midwest. trump has picked peter navarro to head the group. he is a critic of china. his book is called "death by china." he along with wilbur ross is a campaign for trade policies. navarro believes the chinese don't play fair on trade. along with tax reform, the group focuses on cut government regulation by 10%. eliminate america's $500 billion trade deficit. and finally expand energy production by allowing more drilling and more coal burning. one interesting development which clashes with the message that jobs are leaving. look at this chart. these are manufacturing jobs open and waiting. nine-year high of open manufacturing jobs. government data shows openings of sustained levels we have not seen since 2007. earlier this year, it rose to
2:38 am
the highest market since keeping track. it tripled after the low of the recession in 2009. translation here. there are a lot of manufacturing jobs available today. the main problem is skills. many jobs require specific training and high-tech equipment. miguel, one issue for the administration and peter navarro and wilbur ross and all those bringing jobs back is how do we make sure the workers here can do the jobs. is that business or government or both? >> one of the issues coming from the recession. the economy is is n a good plac but could they do damage by tinkering too much or doing wholesale damage? >> frankly, we need to talk about bringing traditional jobs back, but more importantly, we
2:39 am
need to talk about new collar jobs and making sure we have an education system and companies and government that all work together that ensure americans can do the jobs. >> and with robotics and artificial intelligence. >> the world is changing quickly. to help us break down the donald trump transition, we are joined by tal kopan in washington. good morning. >> good morning. >> he seems to be filling out -- he is almost done filling out his entire team to take command on the 20th of january. where are we in the transition and how does it seem to be going at this point? >> certainly he's a bit ahead of the game in terms of actually naming all of his cabinet positions. a quick rollout of the secretaries and agency heads. we are waiting for the flushing
2:40 am
out of the white house staff which some say actually is helpful to go first. he has been able to fill his cabinet without fully flushing out -- we know his top advisers, but not the rest of the down the level staff of the white house. then there is a lot happening behind the scenes that we don't have a camera on every day watching who comes in and who comes out. there are staff with the transition rolling out going into each agency and trying to get their arms around the bureaucracy there. the teams are trying to figure out what government looks like so they can report back to the agency heads and actually see policy plans put into place. >> meanwhile, you have the president-elect using his bully pulpit there to tell companies what he expects from them in terms of cost on government contracts in terms of jobs.
2:41 am
we have seen this in several cases. we know that the ceo yesterday of boeing was summoned to mar-a-lago to meet with the president-elect. listen to what he said after the meeting. >> we did talk about air force one. again, the focus here to make sure we get the best capability and make sure the president is secure and we he prop protect n security andafforaffordably. >> and boeing has the air force one contract. >> trump said. >> tweeting how i will cancel the order. tr trump trying to show i got your back with the big companies. >> and keep in mind, we are really not sure where the $4 billion number came from. there were no published reports that put the estimate of that. boeing said a lot of the cost is yet to be determined because you have to specify exactly what
2:42 am
type of abilities you want this aircraft to have. do you want it to be able to withstand nuclear radiation. if so, that will up the cost. you know, in some ways, the companies are playing it smart. it is in every business leaders' interest to play along a bit with donald trump saying i'm not going to let it cost this much even if it was never going to cost that much. why would a ceo say of course we will not let it cost that much. we are watching necessity gosh y negotiations which are playing out where donald trump wants the wins and he wants to look like a good negotiator. as president obama did with mari marine i contracts. if he can declare a victory, it is good for him. we are seeing the negotiations play out. it is interesting how public donald trump is making them.
