tv Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs CNN May 29, 2017 2:00am-3:01am PDT
a major shift on the world stage fresh off meetings with president trump, angela merkel suggesting europe can't trust the united states the way it used to. >> and the white house taking new steps to try to minimize the fallout over-russia after reports the president trump's son-in-law tried to set up a back channel to speak with the kremlin. good morning and welcome to "early start." i'm allisonison kosik. >> and i'm dave briggs. it's memial day. and irtst's 5 #:00 in the east. and implied no confidence sfroet angela merkel. she says europe can't completely defend on on the united states and other long time allies. merkel did not mention president trump by name, but it was clear who she was thinking of when she mentioned recent international
summits she attended with the president. >> translator: the times when we could completely count on others, they are over to a certain extent. i've experienced this in the last new days and that is why i can only say that we europeans must take our fate into our own hands. of course in friendship with the united states and friendship with great britain and as good neighbors wherever that is possible also with other countries, even with russia. but we have to know that we must fight for our future on our own. for our destiny as europeans. and that's what i want to do together with you. >> so his trip president trump labeled germany bad on trade and slammed nato allieses for spending too little on their own defense. nato leaders weren't happy that the president failed to acknowledge their recent increases in military spending. >> at the g7 summit, world leaders were unable to convince trump to stay any paris accord. >> so distractions don't stop
there. the white house also facing growing fall jou fallout over w jared kushner attempted to create a back channel with the ce kremlin are. a source confirming to cnn a report that first appeared in the "washington post." >> and sources tell cnn that president trump is considering a shakeup in the white house communications office as the west wing sets up a new war room to push back on all russia stories with help from the rnc. we get more now from ryan nobles. >> reporter: good morning. this is the start of a busy week for the president as he returns from his long trip overseas. and we'll have to see if the white house provides anymore clarity about this latest controversy involving the president's son-in-law jared kushner and the reports that he attempted to set up a back channel of communication between the trump transition and the kremlin. the white house is not confirming or denying the report, but they did find an
unlikely ally this weekend in south carolina republican lindsey graham who said that he's not sure he buys this report. listen to what he had to say on state of the yun. >> i don't know who leaked this supposed conversation, but you have the ambassador to russia reporting back to moscow on an open channel. hey, jared kushner's going to move into the embassy. i don't trust this story as far as i can throw it. i think it makes no sense that the russian ambassador would report back to moscow on a channel that he most likely knows we're monitoring. the whole story line is suspicio suspicious. >> grant oig's defen >> reporter: as we've said, the white house has not confirmed or denied the report, instead saying if it were true, it really wouldn't be that big of a deal. among them h.r. mcmaster the national security adviser and
john kelly homeland security sect. meanwhile the president has a busy sunday meeting with advisers about the path going forward public bemeanwhile the busy sunday meeting with advisers about the path going forward public be and we spotted marc kasowitzs attorney retained, and he was seen leaving the white house with ivanka trump. >> rye are an nobles, thanks. the president trump tweeted nothing controversial during his trip overseas, and didn't hold a single news conference. but he did somehow found his way back on o. -to-to wi twitter on marketing the xwlemedia. it's my opinion on that many of the leaks are fabricated lies made up by the #fake news media. >> so joining us here this morning in new york, eugene
scott. good to see you. front page, merkel doubts u.s. is a solid ally. these comments from merkel, who is very are careful with words, is she saying they are alone militarily, economically and, environmentally or all the above? how significant is what merkel said yesterday? >> i do think it's significant. i also think that it's a continuation of what we've seen between her and her relationship with president donald trump. we knee thow that she was very with barack obama. but when we look back at her first meeting with donald trump, if you remember, they didn't even shake hands. there has been some concern about whether or not she can have with this strairadministra what she had in the past. about your i think it's important to say that she said completely. >> what does it say about our standing on the world stage?
>> i think the message that donald trump campaigned on, america first, is a message that we're seeing people internationally finally receive and making the decisions that suggest, hey, we have to plan differently. we cannot expect america to be what it perhaps was to us -- that it was in the past. >> so trump obviously by taking this stance sort of anti-europe or anti-germany that the point, it is appeal to go his base. but about you look at what angela merkel is doing, she's facing an election in september. donald trump is not popular in germany, so she's going to show that she can stand up to somebody about like donald trump. but at the same time, what she is saying can really have ever lasting effects beyond whether or not president trump stays in office after, you know, four years talking about dave's point that this could really alter the u.s. stance on the global stage, not just talking about economically, not just talking about climate change or defense.
we're talking politically as well. >> absolutely. the reality is decisions that are made right now aren't going to be immediate in terms -- or temporary should i say in their impact. these are long term plans in terms of trade and national security, other issues that we involved in with germany. and i think we're seeing merkel say that we have to be perhaps germany first in terms of how we look at our policy moving forward. >> the trade comments were of particular note. we won't to get too deep into them, but the president trump might not have been informed that bmw is our biggest exporter of cars. but we'll move on to jared kushner and the son-in-law of the president, one of his chief advisers. reports that he set up a back channel or wanted to set up a back channel during the transition with the russians. two different sides to this story. let's play them both for you. the positie and the negative about these reports. >> whatever the communication is comes back in to the government
and shared across the government, so it's not a bad thing to have multiple communication lines to any government. i would just say that any line of communication to a country particularly a country like russia is a good thing. >> this is off the man i know no other experience like this in our history, certainly within my life experience. >> all right. it really depends on how you interpret that back channel because adam schiff said they should review jared kushner's security clearance, ted lu suggested perhaps prosecution. how major is this and is it wrong, is it a good thing that he would want a back channel with russia? >> to your point, it does depend on who you talk to. we will find out soon what was discussed. i think what is interesting -- >> we will never find out what was discussed. that's the whole point of a back channel. >> i think the reality is that
there are people who want to know what was discussed and that is part of the entire investigation that wooer seeing looking into what jared's role was between the trump campaign and russia. what is interesting is the numbercalling him naive saying he did not know what was happening. this is one of the main criticisms people have of jared kushner saying that someone involved in this type of action should not be in that role, period, not having a lot of experience in how these things operate. >> but you have three top law enforcement officials, brennan, comey, james clapper all saying that the contact that jared kushner has had with these russian dignitaries is concern aring, where there is smoke there is fire. i mean not just talking about kislyak, but also a meeting with a top banker as well who is putin's right are the hand man. >> it will be interesting to see what happens out of the alleged war room being formed in the white house.
soech h so much has happened while president trump was gone that requires some type of response. so interesting to see what they will pit togethut together. >> is there a battle brewing when steve bannon and jared kushner. a lot of things to pay attention to. all right. the whois might expand a ban on laptops and e reareds to all international flights. john kelly telling fox news that there are currently numerous threats against aviation with terrorists obsessed by the idea of knocking down an american plane. kelly is also considering a ban on large electronics on flights departing the u.s. right now devices bigger than a cellphone are only banned on some u.s.-bound flights originating from ten cities.
two big international stories this morning, north korea escalating its missile test firing another that lands not far from the coast of japan. and another arrest in the manchester attack as officials say some of the bomber's network could still be at large. live reports on both of these developing stories next. i feel it everyday. but at night, it's the last thing on my mind. for 10 years my tempur-pedic has adapted to my weight and shape, relieving pressure points from head to toe. so i sleep deeply and wake up ready to perform. ♪ now through june 11th, save $600 when you buy select tempur-pedic adjustable mattress sets. find your exclusive retailer at tempurpedic.com.

the latest provocation there north korea, pyongyang firing off its third ballistic missile test in as many weeks. a short range missile has fell into the water tws north korea as between north korea and japan. the test drawing strong and immediate condemnation from japan and south korea. cnn's paula hancocks live in seoul with the latest. each time we've seen some sort of differentiation from the previous missile launch. is there anything that makes this it one unique in and of itself? >> what we know at this point from the joint chiefs of staff here is they believe it was a
scud mission missile which is shorts range missile. they are trying to pinpoint whether it was modified, whether it is an extended range which we have seen before about. give something kind of indication as to why north korea decided to fire this missile now. as you say, the third in three weeks that we have seen in fr north korea and condemnation coming from both south korea and japan. japan saying it believed it landed in the exclusive economic zone, the waters off the coast of japan. and we also heard from the chief secretary saying that it is extremely problematic the fact that there are many aircraft and ships in that area and obviously north korea does not give any kind of warning when it does these missile launches. so they say that they are very concerned by that. and now we know there was a national security council meet here, moon jae-in the new
liberal president presiding over that. and since he took power just three weeks ago, there has been a missile launch by north korea every single week. the man who took power in south korea saying he wants engagement, he wants dialogue with north korea, obviously finding it very difficult to do that when there are these continual tests. >> paula hancocks, thank you. a new arrest in about connection with the manchester terror attack, the 23-year-old sussex man taken into custody just hours ago. 14 people remain in custody and police now are trying to determine if the bomber had a terror network behind him and if members of that network could still be at large. let's go live to manchester and bring in cnn's phil black. so phil, we are seeing how investigators are honing in on this terror network. what progress are they making and what work is left to be done? >> reporter: a bit of internal work, too. the british ghoechlts hovernmen
confirmed thatal review to detey salman abedi was not identified as a threat sooner, british media reporting that the authorities had been warned about abedi at least three times prior to the attack. the police investigation as you say, it is still leading police to raid properties and make arrests. that continued overnight. and so now 14 men are being held in custody in connection with this. the authorities say they are talking about making significant progress in getting to the bottom of the network responsible working out who did this and how, but they are not saying that they have everybody just yet. there was an encouraging development over the weekend when the national terror threat level was lowered from its highest point which is critical, it means that british intelligence no longer believes the same group could be capable of striking again imminentimmin. meanwhile here in manchester, a great deal of emotion still on
display almost a week since the attack, we've seen a lot of florida focused here on the memorial site behind me. this is where large numbers of people have been gathering over the weekend, lining up for long periods of time, waiting for theirflowers and tributes. and lots of other people going out of their way to prove that the attack won't change the community or the way people live here. that was the message from tens of thousands of people who took part in the great manchester run. it was an extraordinary sight, so many people running through the streets of the city just days after the attack in what they knew was a powerful message to those who carried out the attack, but also to the rest of the world as well. >> people certainly trying to get on with their lives. positive, yes, that the threat level has been lowered, but so many people still on edge. phil black, thanks so much. let's talk sports ahead. a thrilling finish to the 101st indy 500 and a surprise are

time for some sports before after eight tries, japan's takuma sato wins his first indy 500. >> and coy wire has more in the bleacher report. some great pictures coming out of there. >> yes, good morning. making history in front of 300,000 people here at the iconic bricking yard, largest single day sporting event in the board.
takuma sato the first japanese driver to ever win the indy 500. it was action packed. a record 15 different leaders. takuma sato is 40 years old, and he captured greatness on his eighth attempt. i asked the champ about his mind set oig. >> no attack, no chance is my motto. age is something, but i think you just believe it and never give up. i think then the dreams come true. >> describe how that milk tasted in vehicle ictory lane. >> i love the milk, but it was just awesome feeling and the taste fantastic. >> reporter: scott dixon walked away as indy 500 champion in 2008 and this race fortunate to walk away at all. a heart-stopping moment, his car went soaring 24r50u the air after contact with another driver, crashing in about to the barrier wall, bursting into flames and pieces. the safety cell inside his

>> yes, it was dead silence and broken only by gasps. a miracle that he was able to walk away from this relatively unharmed. >> and this guy rob bed in a taco bell drive-thru earlier in the week. he's had a rough week, but a great guy. coy wire, thanks. can the u.s. be trusted by allies in europe? german chancellor has doubts after meeting with president trump. the average family's new, but old, home: it stood up to 2 rookies, a one-coat wonder named "grams". and 3 staycations. behr. number one rated interior paint, exterior paint and stain.

(laughing)
with president trump. so what is in store for u.s. relations with key allies? and amid growing fallout over russia,ing steps to minimi fallout on jared kushner's back channel overtures with the kremlin affects the power structure. welcome back to "early start." >> thanks for joining us on this memorial day. and on the heels of its overseas trip, president trump gets an implied no confidence vote from one of europe's top leaders. german chancellor angela merkel says that europe on can't completely defend on the u.s. and other long time allies. merkel didn't mention president trump by name, but it was clear just who she was thinking of when she mentioned recent international summits she attended with the president. >> translator: the times when we could completely count on others are over to a certain extent. i've experienced this in the last few days and that is why i
can only say that we europeans must really take our fate into our own hands. of course in friendship with the united states of america and friendship with great britain and as good neighbors wherever that is possible also with other countries. even with russia. but we have to know that we must fight for a our future on our own, for our destiny as europeans. and that's what i want to do together with you. >> president trump labeled germany very bad on trade and he slammed nato allies for spending too little on their own defense. nato leaders weren't happy that the president failed to acknowledge their recent increases in military spending. >> and at the g7 summit, world leaders were are unable to convince president trump to stay in the paris climate accord. the president says a final decision is coming this week. >> distractions for the president, they don't stop there. the white house also facing growing fallout over word that attempted to set up a back channel to communicate with the kremlin during the transition undetected. a source confirming to cnn the
report that first appeared in the "washington post." >> president trump now preparing to fight back. sources tell cnn he is considering a shakeup in the white house communications office as the west wing sets up a new war room to push back on all russia stories with help from the rnc. we get now more from cnn's ryan nobles. >> good morning from the white house. and this is the start of a busy week for the president as he returns from his long trip overseas. and we'll have to see if the white house provides anymore clarity about this latest controversy involving the president's son-in-law jared kushner and the reports that he attempted to set up a back channel of communication between the trump transition and the kremlin. the white house has not confirmed or denied the report, but they did find an unlikely ally this weekend in south carolina republican lindsey graham who said that he's not sure he buys this report. listen to what he had to say on "state of the union." >> i don't know who leaked this
supposed conversation, but just think about this way. you got the ambassador to russia reporting back to moscow on an open channel, hey, jared kushner is going to move into the embassy. i don't trust this story as far as i can throw it. i think it makes no sense that the russian ambassador would report back to moscow on a channel that he mostly sunny like most likely knows we're monitoring. it's suspicion public issues. i' issues. i've never been more concerned or suspicious than i am right now. >> this is more than we've seen from the white house itself. they have into the cnot confirm denied the report, instead they speak about it more broadly. saying that if it were true, it really wouldn't be that big of a deal. among them, h.r. mcmaster the national security adviser and john kelgly the home on land security secretary. meanwhile the president had a busy sunday meeting with advisers about the path going forward, not just on russia, but on his domestic agenda, as well. and we spotted marc kasowitz the
attorney that the president has retained to represent him as an individual, not necessarily as the president. kasowitz seen leaving the white house with ivanka trump the wife of jared kushner of course at the center of all this controversy. >> okay, ryan, thanks very much. no doubt this will be a huge week. and to talk about what will be happening this week, we have uhe fwe eugene scott up early for us. so we have president trump back on u.s. soil after his overseas trip. he says it was a success. getting a different vibe from angela her kell who says that europe can't completely rely on the u.s. this is huge because europe is one of the u.s.'s biggest trading partners, this 4 this h implications for defense and beyond this presidency. so i ghaes sheet that she's up re-election in september.
and she's up against a voting population who are not too keen on donald trump at the moment. so with a beer in hand, she says that europe can't rely on the u.s. like it used to. this has huge implications. >> absolutely. germany is europe's largest economy. and so that will have a huge impact on us in the states when it comes to trade. but it's also going to have a significant impact related to national security issues and other international affairs. particularly how they respond to russia and what we can expect of them in terms of their relationship with russia. i think what is most interesting is how personal this may be as well. we know that merkel was a good friend of barack obama's at least internationally and we also know that when she came to the states with trump, there was quite a few -- there were quite a few memes about hand shakes and facial expressions. so interesting to see what it means going forward in terms of her relationship with donald trump. >> in a broader sense, does this suggest to you that programs the united states will pull out of the paris climate agreement, does it suggest that in his
speech he did not reaffirm article 5 oig v are on nato. >> with and i think that they have been on the fence for a while. we don't really know where the administration completely stands on this issue because they haven't always been consistent on it. i think that there are people at the white house like ivanka trump who say that maybe we will be more sense i have to nice environmental issues and then her father says something else that doesn't give us a strong sense of where the administration will stand on these issues. >> this has major international consequences, but if you're a trump supporter, do you say, look, this is what we voted for? >> absolutely. i think the reality is that we cannot completely rely on the united states, i think when it president donald trump campaigned and he said america first, this is what people in these towns and in these states that backed him were hoping, not that america would be left of will-would leave the rest of the world behind when they were in need, bruh that america would
look out for americans first. >> the othether big headline, jd kushner books and his dealings with the russian ambassador kislyak and others including a big banker, a big russia banker. we haven't seen the white house come out with a statement. we've seen a few tweets from donald trump. we haven't are seen seen an off statement about what is happening here. >> what i see happening is the white house putting this alleged war room into use in terms of how they will figure out how to respond to these crises, particularly this situation with jared kushner in terms of back channeling communications with russia. >> right, and that is the question here. did cukushner try to back chann with the russians, why did he do that. here are both sides of that it story on sunday. >> whatever the communication is comes back into on the government shared across the government, so it's not a bad thing to have multiple
communication lines to any government. i would just say that any line of communication to a country particularly a country like russia is a good thing. >> this is off the man, i know of no other experience like this in our on history, certainly within my life experience. >> here is out president trump defended his son-in-law to the "new york times." jared kushner is doing a great job for the country, i have total confidence in him. he is respected by verirtually everyone and is working on programs that will save our country billions of dollars. in addition about to that and perhaps more important only, he is a very good person. but at the heart ever this is the questi the question of the private back channel. is it a good thingever this is the question of the private back channel. is it a good thing or off the map? two different perspectives on setting up private communications with arguably our biggest global adversary. >> and of course that depends on what side of the i'll ig yaisle
on. there are people who don't think that he is a agree person and has the experience to be involved in this. but i think it's important to know thatperson and has the experience to be involved in this. but i think it's important to know that it's not uncommon for russia to exaggerate what happened. >> or completely lie. >> and that's what lindsey graham was alluding to, saying that this could be a setup. why would kigs lee being a tell his russian counterparts that this is happening when he in the back of his mind knows that he could be monitored. >> but the administration did not push back. they did not deny that this happened. so those hearings on capitol hill for kushner become very important. >> thanks so much. the two big international stories this morning, north korea escalating its missile test following firing another that landed not far from the coast of japan. and another arrest in the manchester attack as officials say some of the bomber's network could still be at large. live reports on both of these
developing stories next.

breaking overnight, latest provocation from north korea, pyongyang firing off its third ballistic missile test in as many weeks. a short range missile that fell into the waters between north korea and gentlemjapan just 200 from the japanese coastline. the test drawing strong and immediate condemnation from japan and south korea. paula hancocks is live for us in seoul with the very latest. paula, this missile landing very close to the japanese coastline where ships and planes operate getting very strong words from japan. >> reporter: that's right. we 4erd from gentlemheard from secretary that it was extremely problematic that this is a busy shipping lane, the fact that there are a number of aircrafts and ship in the area and clear areal clearly
north korea does not give warning. so once again shinzo abe had strong condemnation saying that he would take concrete action together with the united states to try to make sure that they can deter north korea. not giving any indication of exactly when that is, whether or not stronger sanctions, further sanctions and of course what part beijing would play in that. so up in the air at this point what exactly that means. we heard from south korea as well saying that they condemed what happened, that takes severe threat to the peaces and stability not only of the korean peninsula, but of the entire international community. there is fair areally new president, moon jae-in sworn in just are three weeks ago and since he became president, north korea has filed a missile every single week. this is a man who says he is pro dialogue with wipyongyang, but difficult to see how that this is possible when the launches
