2:00 am
>> reporter: a report says russia has stepped up its spying on the u.s. more in a moment. for the latest, we turn to white house correspondent sara murray, live in hamburg. president trump meets putin face to face in a few hours. what can we actually expect out of this meeting? >> reporter: you can expect everything from their statements to their body language to be very closely scrutinized. this is slighted to be a relatively brief meeting but important one. along with rex tillerson, russian foreign minister lavrov will be there. in the run-up to the meeting, the world leaders have had sharp words for one another. putin has slammed u.s. sanctions against russia as well as president trump's trade policies. as for trump, when he was in poland, he had stern words for russia, too, chiding them for their role in conflicts in the ukraine, as well as in syria. the big question is whether president trump is going to bring up russia's meddling in
2:01 am
the 2016 election. when he was speaking in poland, he seemed to again question russia's role in this. it's clear today that trump's head is still on that election. instead of having sharp words for russia, he has sharp words for democrats including a stormer staffer to hillary clinton's campaign. trump tweeted, "everyone is talking about why john podesta refused to give the dnc server to the fbi and cia, disgraceful." that's where his head is at. the g20 is playing out in hamburg, germany, against the back drop of intense protests. yesterday there were about 12,000 protesters here. 1110 police officers injured and a few dozen arrests. protests have begun today including with some protesters lighting cars on fire. they will continue later this morning. >> thank you very much. there's so much on the agenda when presidents trump and putin meet at the g20. so much, in fact, that the russians say the limited time
2:02 am
available might be -- might make it hard to delve into russia's aggression in ukraine and crimea. that, of course, still leaves syria, isis, nato sanctions, a whole lot more to discuss here, plus the parsing of the body language and optics of the meeting. ivan watson joins us. what constitutes sanctions for russia and the u.s.? >> reporter: it's important. russia and the u.s. hasn't had a sit down since 2015, president obama and vladimir putin at that time. relations can he zero level now, a meeting now would be good to just help international stability. if you look at the world's flashpoints and places where the russian military's involved, where lives are being lost,
2:03 am
where the u.s. military is involved, as well, of course it would be good to get two leaders to talk about them. one area where they might be able to find common ground is syria and the awful civil war there. the u.s. secretary of state, rex tillerson, he floated the idea that perhaps both sides could talk about no-fly zones in the upcoming meeting. the russian top diplomat responded saying that would be a good first step forward. of course we're going to be looking at the body language. you've got two leaders with vastly different experience in government. president trump is brand new to the job essentially. putin is very experienced. this will be the fourth american president he will meet face to face with. there have been stark differences in world view between u.s. and russian leaders in the past. russia is chafing at what they describe as a unilaterally led world with a u.s. superpower. they want the world divided into
2:04 am
kind of individual more 19th century approach to the world where russia would get a sphere of influence. we don't know whether or not that fits with president trump's world view which involves america first. >> ivan watson in moscow. thanks. now for perspective, political analyst josh rogan, columnist for the "washington post." good morning, josh, mr. perspective. look, a lot of pressure on these two, a lot on the plate. could be a short meeting. what do you expect out of this thing? >> there's an effort and desire on both sides to have a happy, good meeting. a meeting where they show the world's largest nuclear powers can get along and actually talk about if not solve big issues of international concern. that's what both sides want. that's what we can expect. of course the context is that things are not happy, things are not hunky-dory. the relationship is not good. not only that, they're in
2:05 am
europe. and most european countries see vladimir putin and his government as attacking their interests, attacking their democracies, attacking their way of life. attacking their institutions. there's a tension between the desire of the trump white house to show that the united states and russia can get along, and the overall desire of the world community to have the united states stand up against russian interference, against russian aggression, against russian assaults on things like democracy, the rule of law, and human rights around the world. >> we were talking to ivan watson and nic robertson, too, last hour, about the personal brands of both of these men. they both come in with a brand of strength, of -- donald trump the dealmaker and vladimir putin, the strongman, bare chested on a horse with his big dogs and the like. you wonder how much scrutiny will be paid to the optics of
2:06 am
this. whether they go in and flatter each other, all smiles and a strong handshake, or something more or less. >> right. one way to look at it, here are two guys who have sort of an authoritarian view of governments, have a nationalistic approach to how they view their own populations. the other way to look at it is this -- the view that i hold. one guy's an intelligence officer, okay. and his job is to get the advantage. that's vladimir putin. you have another guy who's a businessman. his job is to get to a deal, that's donald trump. that's the essential tension. the russians want to gain position, and trump wants to gain a negotiation. that's essentially where the rub is going to be. what does that mean practically? it means the trump administration will put forth a bunch of things that they think they can work with with the russians on. syria, ukraine, you name it. and whether or not the russians give in to those things, not just based on the russian calculation of whether or not these things are good for those
2:07 am
countries and the world but based on whether those things are good for sharrussia, vis-a- it's es -- its position in the united states. that's where they're headed. >> they have that, plus all the concern about russia spying in the u.s. cnn reporting that the russians have upped their game in the u.s. in trying to get more and more. what is your sense, that this is the typical stuff that countries like the u.s. and russia do to each other, or is there something more at play? >> spying is typical. we could expect the russians would try to reinvigorate their influence and information and intelligence operations in the united states. what we really couldn't expect is that the united states would not be doing something on our side to increase not only our deterrence but also our resilience. and to sort of make sure that as this expected increase of russian intelligence aggression and -- and information operations in the united states arrives, that we would be in the
2:08 am
same position essentially as we were last year. now, that's not to say the intelligence agencies in the united states aren't working on that. >> right. >> what we failed to see is an overall whole of government approach to fixing this member and preparing for the next wave of russian attacks. that's a huge problem. one that president trump doesn't seem particularly to have seized on. >> and that started in the last administration, the last administration and continues into this administration. something that the kremlin is capitalizing on. we'll show you live pictures, by the way. 11:08 a.m. in hamburg, germany. you see some of the protesters. i don't want to make too much of protests. i don't. i've been covering these things for years, decades, frankly. >> sure. >> showing my age. and they always have protests. does not even matter who -- who runs the government. they always have these -- anarchists, anti--- >> anti-globalization. >> sure. >> all kind of different -- a different stuff there. i want to talk more about our
2:09 am
russia reporting on russia stepping up its -- its spying into the u.s. i want you to listen to something that the former d&i, james clapper, said yesterday on our air. >> this certainly fits the standard russian pattern which comports with their behavior going back decades. and they do want to, i'm sure, repair the loss by virtue of the 35 intelligence operatives that were expelled by the obama administration. and just their general push -- they are going to stretch the envelope as far as they can to collect information. and i think largely if i could use the military phrase to prep the battlefield for 2018 elections. >> prep the battlefield for 2018 elections. he mentioned the 35 operatives expelled by the obama administration. josh, do you think that
2:10 am
president trump is likely to restore people, restore the property that was sanctioned? that would be a win for putin, something that he would like. and do you think that trump is going to bring up the meddling in the election, or is that just off limits? >> reporter: i don't think he's going to bring it up. i don't think the white house sees an upside in bringing it up. of course, it's what everyone else wants him to do, which is also why they don't want to do it. they want to show that they're not yielding to the sort of what they see as the pressure to inject this in the u.s./russia relationship at that time. i believe that's the wrong decision. i believe we should speak to the russians clearly about what they did and what we don't want them to do again. but setting that aside, it's not going to happen. the president will probably receive some criticism for that. he does deserve criticism for that. more broadly, what you're getting at here is that the trump administration has a desire -- president trump himself -- and rex tillerson talks about this all the time -- to improve u.s./russia relations. they simply believe that this is too important of a relationship to be at this horrible, horrible
2:11 am
place. it's just too dangerous. there's an argument for that. i don't think that that in and of itself is crazy. you know, we want to try to find a way to step back from the brink of tension with the russians. that's okay. the question is under what terms. when you talk about giving the russians back these two diplomatic compounds, maybe giving sanctions relief, giving them things that they want, my question is what do we get? what's on the other side of that ledger? is he going to make a good deal or a bad deal? i try not to look at this as, oh, well, we can't give the russians the compounds back. we can give them back, but what are we going to get, and how are we going to be reassured that when they give them back they won't turn them into huge spy centers like they did a year ago? >> right. want to show live pictures from hamburg. the g20 official program beginning with the leaders getting together. one issue that they may be taking on and find? concerted -- taking on and
2:12 am
finding concerted effort is north korea. now that they've tested the icbm missile that's created concern across the world. josh, i take this is going to be a big topic of conversation there. >> reporter: of course. you know, there's -- every country in the world has reason to be concerned and worried and scared about the progress of north korea's nuclear missile development. and it's really much greater crisis than the world community is able to deal with right now. of course, our strategy is to drastically increase pressure on the north korean regime. and russia and china are directly undermining the strategy by increasing their own trade with the regime and by blocking strong internal action. that is a huge problem. i don't think they'll get to that in the trump/putin meeting to be honest because they don't have the time. what you saw last night was president trump meet with the leaders of south korea and japan.
2:13 am
mrs. pretty much unity amongst america's allies, no unity with -- there's pretty much unity amongst america's allies, no unity with the stopping of provocations. it's risky and not likely to work without chinese and russian buy-in. the question is if they're not going to do it voluntarily, do we pressure them to go along with it, and will that work, and does that represent a risk of escalation on its own. this problem will get worse before it gets better. that's not the trump administration's fault but their responsibility. and what we're all leaning toward is eventually we're going to have to sit down with the north koreans. we'll have to have diplomacy and some sort of negotiation. that's going to be an unpalatable thing to do. >> what they want. >> of course, it's what they want. the only other alternative is never-ending escalation which carries with it the risk of thermonuclear war.
2:14 am
>> or china fixes the problem. the north korean economy can't run without support from china. the president has called out china saying, you know, we hoped they'd be able to have sway, and they couldn't or didn't do it. >> sure. >> we'll see -- >> i would say, i think what we found -- this is somewhat predictable, but i think donald trump had to figure this out for himself -- the chinese don't view fixing the problem the same way we do. they don't view the problem the same way we do. they prefer the status quo to putting pressure on the regime. if we're going different directions, it doesn't matter if they're increasing activity or not. they just don't see the problem the way that we do. we've to wrap our minds around them and make decisions accordingly. >> thanks. >> thanks. >> talk to you in a few minutes. this other story we're following, an assault on a flight attendant forcing a delta flight to turn around shortly after takeoff. we'll tell you how other passengers jumped in to action, next. look at us. look at us.

two of america's biggest trading partners are striking a deal. that could be bad news for u.s. automakers and dairy farmers. europe and japan are signing a free trade agreement before the g20 summit. a clear reaction to the white house's protectionist stance. japanese prime minister abe saying they'll hoist the flag of free trade amid protectionism. this could hurt u.s. industries like cars. the agreement removes high tariffs on japanese cars and helps european automakers in japan. both actions will squeeze u.s. automakers. just as sales slow in the u.s., u.s. automakers will face an eu tariff and tougher competition in japan. the deal also eliminates japanese duties on european cheeses. right now, japan slaps a whopping 30% tariff on dairy and an increase in european gouda that will hurt american cheesemakers. currently japan is the third-largest market for u.s.
2:20 am
cheese. american dairy farmers were banking on the tpp, transpacific partnership, to help in japan. of course, president trump scrapped that deal his first full day in office. a scare for passengers on a delta flight headed from seattle to beijing. flight 129 turned back shortly after takeoff last night when a passenger assaulted a flight attendant in first class. the plane returned to sea-tac airport under a defense department escort. delta says the suspect was restrained by other passengers on board and taken into custody upon landing. the flight attendant and a passenger were injured and taken to the hospital. both are expected to be fine. flight 129 is back in the air this hour, expected to land in beijing this afternoon. around the same time the suspect is due in federal court in seattle. a federal judge denied the state of hawaii's attempt to limit the scope of president trump's travel ban in its request -- travel ban. in its request for

clarification, hawaiian officials say the government overreached by excluding grandparents and other relatives after the supreme court decision allowing the ban to take effect. a district court judge in honolulu rejected the challenge ruling any request for clarification should be made to the supreme court, ifa full hearing is set for the fall. maine governor paul lepage raising eyebrows suggesting he sometimes concocts stories to mislead the media. he makes stuff up. he's lashing out at the press for falsely reporting he planned to leave the state during a government shutdown. the governor said it stemmed from telling a local reporter his pen was on vacation and he had nothing to sign. it was taken out of context by the reporter. now listen to what lepage said in a radio interview -- >> i just love to sit in my office and make up ways so they can write stupid stories. they're so stupid. it's awful. i'm sorry. the sooner the print press goes away, the better society will
2:22 am
be. >> if that wasn't enough, he called the media vile, inaccurate, useless, and said the sooner the print press goes away the better. lepage's office has not responded to cnn's request for comment. >> he's said to other press outlets or republican senators there have said that he told them he was going away on a ten-day vacation. they're sticking to their guns, interesting. you can add author to tom brady's already impressive resume. coy wire with the details in the "bleacher report" coming up next.

"early start" continues right now.
2:30 am
president trump looking vladimir putin in the eye for the first time ahead of the bilateral meeting. what's in store for later at the g20? we've t covered in hamburg, washington, moscow, and -- we have it covered in hamburg, washington, moscow, and seoul. >> the two have met. the bilateral meeting is on. they have now met. >> shaken hands. >> this is underway. welcome back to "early start," i'm christine romans. >> i'm miguel marquez. 30 minutes past the hour, 11:30 in the morning in hamburg, germany. welcome to our viewers in the u.s. and around the world. it is one of the most eagerly anticipated meetings of leaders in decades. this morning, president trump sits down with russian president vladimir putin as the g20 summit gets underway in germany. we're told the pair have already greeted each other in the g20 according to russian media. the bilateral meeting comes later today after president trump said russia should stop
2:31 am
destabilizing activities, but minutes later refused to conclude that russia meddled in the u.s. election. >> new cnn reporting says russia has stepped up spying efforts in the u.s. more in a moment. for the latest, white house correspondent sara murray is live in hamburg. president trump meets face to face in a few hours. what do we expect? >> reporter: that's right. the leaders have met, shaken hands. the real substance is going to come later. it will be an intimate meeting. president trump, putin, will be there, in addition to some of their top diplomats, secretary of state rex tillerson and the lavrov. leading up to the meetings, the two leaders have not had the nicest things to say about each other. putin slammed u.s. sanctions against russia as well as president trump's trade policies. as for trump, when he was speaking in poland yesterday, he chided russia for its role in conflicts in the ukraine, as
2:32 am
well as in syria. of course, the big question, the pressing question -- will president trump bring up russia's interference in the 2016 election. when he was talking about this yesterday, trump questioned intelligence from our own u.s. intelligence agencies and suggested that maybe other countries were trying to hack the election in addition to russia. it seems clear that where president trump's head is is on the election. he's offering up harsher words for former democratic opponents than he is for putin. at this moment taking aim at john podesta, a clinton campaign staffer. and saying everyone here is talking about why john podesta refused to give the dnc server to the fbi and the cia. disgraceful. that's where the president's head is at this morning. of course, the g20 summit is playing out against the backdrop of intense protests. about 111 german police officers were injured.
2:33 am
skirmishes starting up this morning, protesters setting cars on fire, even attacking a police helicopter. back to you. >> brief brief meetinee -- g20 site of anti-globalization protesters mostly. thank you. there's plenty on the agenda as presidents trump and putin meet at the g20. so much in fact that the russians were saying the limited time available might make it hard to delve into russia's aggression in ukraine and crimea. that leaves syria, isis, nato sanctions and more. we have more from ivan watson in moscow. looking from both sides, what would constitute a successful meeting for the russians? what would constitute a successful meeting for the u.s.? >> reporter: the fact that they're meeting, that's a big deal. you haven't had a u.s. and russian president meet since september of 2015. i just got off the conference call with putin spokesman,
2:34 am
peskov. he confirmed that trump and putin did shake hands on the sidelines at the g20 and told each other they'll see each other soon for the much-anticipate much-anticipated bilateral face-to-face sit down conversation. the kremlin said that u.s./russian relations have been at zero level. they've been hurt additionally by the fact that the u.s. slapped additional sanctions against dozens of schaap entities. in -- dozens of russian entities. in the last weeks due to russian activities in ukraine and the 2014 annexation of crimea from ukraine. one potential area where the leaders could see eye to eye, miguel, is in the grinding conflict in syria. the u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson said that the two militaries, u.s. and russia, have had some success in activating kind of de-confliction zones in syria. he floated the area of establishing no-fly zones.
2:35 am
russia's top diplomat responded saying that that would be a step in the right direction. the kremlin set just getting the leaders into the same room would be good for international stability. there are still a host of areas where traditionally russia and the u.s. have not seen eye to eye. back to you. >> all right. ivan watson in moscow. thank you. cnn political analyst josh rogan, columnist for the "washington post." they've shaken hands on the sidelines here. see you later, we'll have a talk later. what is that the russians need for a successful meeting, what is it that the americans need for a successful meeting -- for a win, a deal? >> sure. we should say just the fact that they're having the meeting is a win for the russian side. it's something that putin has wanted since donald trump became president. if they just have a meeting and nothing goes wrong, that's a win for the russians. elevates them back to great power status, to be standing
2:36 am
alongside the president of the united states. the photos, pageantry. the fact that we're dealing with them on a leader-to-leader basis. that's a return to the level that they envision themselves in. for the united states, it's more complicated. for trump and the people around him, a win would be to make some progress on the issues that they feel are important. as ivan said, syria, perhaps ukraine, perhaps the fight against isis. they want to show the overall drive to improve u.s./russia relations can produce some benefits. that's going to be a tough lift in a 30-minute meeting, half of which is eaten up by translations and pleasantries, a russian list of grievances for the united states dating back to world war ii and the cold war. that's what -- that's what the president wants. what a lot of people inside the administration want, a lot of people in washington want, is for the president to make clear the u.s. position on hacking and meddling and interference and
2:37 am
aggression. it's also what a lot of the europeans want. as the president tours europe, the europeans are getting a mixed message. the one hand, in planned speeches, he says we need to push back against russian aggression. then he disputes that russia interfered in the election at all. >> yeah. >> what we should want is some clarity on the u.s. stance on russia. that would be a win. >> and the tension in the meeting, both sides will probably be on their best behavior and perhaps be on the defense, as well. i want to turn to the u.s. elections and russian meddling. new cnn reporting saying the russians are rebuilding, reconstituting efforts to spy in the u.s. the former director of national intelligence, jim clapper, saying that they're laying the battlefield for 2018 and 2020. here's what he said about russia and its efforts to rebuild spying in the u.s. on cnn.
2:38 am
>> gives him i think reassurance. also it actually encourages him to deep doing what he's doing. if these reports which i have no -- you know, i have no doubt about, about their stepped up pace of efforts in this country, bear that out. as long as we don't push back with the russians and take the necessary measures to foreclose, they're going to continue. >> this clearly comes from a guy who is not privy to current intelligence but was just a few months ago. there will be great pressure for president trump to bring this up with the russians. i take it's not likely he's going to. >> it's clear the president doesn't share clapper's view or the view of most of the intelligence agencies. most of congress. most of the neural community. this is not just an issue of punishing russia or raising this with putin. you know, this is an issue of
2:39 am
real core national security risk and concern. we can predict that the russians were going to replenish their spy ranks. of course they're going to do that. it's not just the russians. every country is spying all the time. every sun and hacking all the -- every country is hacking all the time as much as they can. russia took it one step further by releasing information and combining it with a massive propaganda campaign that favored one candidate over the other. that's horrendous. overall, it's not just about confronting russia. it's about building a system, a resilience, a defense, perhaps even an offense in the united states that can prevent this from happening again. if we don't do that, it will happen again. that will have grave consequences for our systems, institutions, and our democraci. >> yeah. >> let's acknowledge that the president is never going to be as tough on russia in this regard as most of us would want him to be. at the same time, it would be great, imperative, for the united states to get its act
2:40 am
together and prepare. whether or not russia increases its number of spies, this problem is not going away any time soon. >> everyone spies. everyone spies. >> exactly. >> the spying in conjunction with the disinformation campaign, the russians do that so well, we saw in the french election. we have seen it again and again in european politics and polici. >> exactly. >> the russian disinformation campaign has been very successful. there's that and this information. i want to play a sound bite from george bush, the former president george bush, but his meeting one on one with vladimir putin. i think it gives you color, a sense of the kind of personality that donald trump is up against. >> i introduced putin to barney. you remember barney, the scottish terrier? >> yes. >> little guy, legs. he kind of dissed him. he looked at him like, you think that's a dog?

you like to meet my dog?" here comes a giant hound. he looks at me and says, "bigger, stronger, and faster than barney." you know, and it speaks volumes when you listen to what somebody says. in other words, he's got a chip on his shoulder. >> smile on his face but he was making a point here. do you think that vladimir putin the flatter donald trump? in many senses, the russians think that already got whaen they wanted -- gotten what they wanted. that they've consumed the american political process at the moment. or do you think he'll be a strongman and talk tough? >> i think he's going to try to work him as an intelligence officer would as a potential asset. he's going try to work him. there will be a range of tactics. it might include flattery, threats, tough talk, incentives.
2:42 am
like, let's make a deal, or here's where i can give you, here's why you should do this, it's good for you and good for me. a combination of tactics that any operative would use to convince an asset to do the things they want to do. now president trump is being well briefed. it's not as if a team around him won't understand the dynamic. if he can recognize that and sort of stand up for the things that he wants to stand up for while agreeing with putin on things he's inclined to agree with him on, that's fine. that's a mental chess game that they're going to be playing. the problem is, of course, is that when you get president trump into these unscripted situations, especially when there are not -- aren't a lot of advisers, he says and does crazy stuff. we saw this in the last meeting with the russian prime minister and ambassador. he gave away the intelligence, he was super chummy. so there's an effort inside the u.s. government to educate the president of the united states about what he's about to face.
2:43 am
and he'll have that education. what he chooses to do with that education, nobody knows. nobody can predict what president trump is going to do inside this meeting. president trump may not know what he's going to do inside this meeting. there's that risk. i don't know exactly which tactic putin will take, but he's working the president. he's the best at that. the president better be ready. >> the game is already on clearly. the russians saying that putin is looking forward to the meeting with president trump despite the fact that trump knocked him in poland. already a little bit of a positioning there. thank you very much. >> thank you. so far, no clear strategy to slow north korea's nuclear program. now one leader says he'll meet kim jong-un any time, anywhere. we'll tell you who. we have a report live. you know what's awesome?

less than three hours until the june jobs report comes out. we'll see if america's job report remains strong. will it be enough to meet the president's promise of createation million jobs over the next -- promise of creating a million jobs over the next decade? economists expect 172,000 jobs added in june. a great number. it's not the average the 208 a month the president will need to meet his goal. the unemployment rate should remain at a low 4.3%, the lowest since 2001. economists think this is near full employment, meaning there aren't really many more available workers waiting and looking for a job. job gains will probably slow. they already are. jobs growth from february to may was the slowest in three years. the u.s. has been adding jobs for 80 consecutive months. that streak cannot last forever. look, you see slower pace of job gains than the prior year. american wages are expected to rise. we'll be looking for that
