tv   Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs  CNN  July 17, 2017 2:00am-2:57am PDT

2:00 am
yet the president defending this number even as the russia investigation hampers his agenda. good morning, everyone. welcome to early start. i'm dave briggs on this made in america week. happy made in america week. >> i'm fired up. i'm christine romans made in america. it's mocnday, july 17. a health scare for a key republican senator. the latest obstacle for republicans trying to pass a new health care bill. and there are new concerns john mccain's absence could be longer than first thought. mitch mcconnell announcing he will postpone a vote because senator mccain is recovering in arizona after having a blood clot removed above his left eye. mccain's absence could jeopardize efforts to repeal and replace obamacare with two republican senators now rand paul and susan collins already declaring their opposition. mcconnell needs all other 50 to pass this measure. >> doctors describe the surgery as minimally invasive, but dr.
2:01 am
sanjay gupta notes that mccain does have a history of invasive melanoma in and around the area. mccain's doctors are waiting for pathology tests to see if more treatment is needed. the health bill facing big political challenges as well. more on that in a moment. and new poll numbers that might rattle any other president but drawing a shrug from the current white house on occupant. president trump reaching a new low in approval ratings just 36% in the latest "washington post" abc news bomu ews poll. that is down six points from his 100 day mark in april. president trump responding with a tweet that accepts the numbers and casts doubt on the poll at the very same time. >> he says the abc news "washington post" poll even though almost 40% is not bad at this time was just about the most inaccurate poll around election time. well, that has a few issues. first, ooirts actually the
2:02 am
lowest approval rating at the six month mark of any president in the last 70 years. so not exactly what you would call not bad. the second is the final estimate from the "washington post" poll was 43% for a trump, 47% for hillary who posted 48.5% on election night, well within the poll's margin of error. also this morning, the secret service rejected a claim by president's lawyer that the agency would have prevented anything questionable from happening that the meeting last june between donald trump jr. and a russian lawyer. secret service says it had no responsibility to check out participants in the meeting because doon junin jr. was not the president was not aware of the meeting and not engaged in it. that got a skeptical response from mark warner. all this came after we learned that yet another person attended
2:03 am
that meeting. russia american lobbyist rinat akhmetshin. we've now learned eight people were at the meeting, a significant jump from the four we were told were originally there when don jr. said that is everything. plenty to get to this morning. joining us eugene scott. good morning. let's talk about this sekulow/secret service issue because that was clearly the point of the administration. the talking point was that this is not a good deal, secret service let these guys in trump tower, so that is it, that is the end of the story. secret service when pressed and asked for a comment said no, he was not under secret service protection. was this a misfire from the administration or what do you make of that response from sekulow? >> i think what we're seeing with the trump attorneys at this point is that unfortunately, they are getting information bit by bit and are having to be the face of the administration and
2:04 am
are having their words put back in front of them and making it look as if they are perhaps being completely dishonest. that could be what is happening. but what also could be what is happening is that they just don't have all of the information just like we didn't have it monday or tuesday or wednesday. and the reality is inn that it'l not out which is why they would like to investigate to find out more. >> as to for as many interviews sekulow did, i want to hear him asked when did the president know about the e-mail from the russians because that is what opened the door to collusion, that's what changed the game here. but that was not asked. but let me ask you about the notion in a trump supporters say we don't care about russia, we don't care about any of this. why should they, why is this an important issue? >> well, because what russia is desiring to do, the influence that they would like to have in the united states and on a global stage should matter to
2:05 am
americans. i think we've seen republican lawmakers say that putin's vision for what the world should be and what is normal in terms of how we respond to human rights issues, to media, to political opponents to business and investment seem to be fundamentally different from what the united states says they value. and the reality is when you partner with certain people, you are at least of a firming some of their world trues a views. >> the president was tweeting angrily about this issue. but i want too ta talk about he care. one of the most recent polls showing that everyone befores obamacare. who likes this new bill, this new senate health care bill? because you look at the aarp doesn't like it, a couple insurance companies came out against -- >> two biggest in the country. >> doctors don't like 00 thit, patient advocates don't like it.
2:06 am
who likes it? >> mitch mcconnell likes it. >> mike pence likes it. >> what is clear that they don't like obamacare and the challenge is that more americans like obamacare. so i think what has been interesting and the optics and timing of this vote being delayed because of a senator's health care and being able to have health care to deal with some of his health issues i think just highlights how many millions of people that opponents say would not be in the same situation or have the same opportunity that joon john john mccain is finding himself having. so i think all of that is very fascinating. >> and we do wish senator mccain a quick can recovck recovery. he's a workhorse in the senate and i hope he's resting comfortably if you're watching. good morning, sir. >> but as for on this bill, republicans knew that they would get opposition from democrats. that is not the issue right now. the prime issue is coming from within the house, from within their own party. so listen to this characterization of the medicaid
2:07 am
cuts or slow of the growth rate from the vice president mike pence and republican senator susan collins. very different takes. >> let me be clear. president trump and i believe the senate health care bill strengthens and skuecures medicd for the neediest in our society. and this bill about puts this vital american program on a path to long term sustainability. >> this bill would make sweeping and deep cuts in the medicaid program which has been a safety net program on the books for more than 50 years. ensuring that some of our most vulnerable citizens, our disabled children, our low income seniors can receive the health care that a they need. >> a so sgl so the vice president says it strengthens and secures medication, collins saying deep
2:08 am
cuts. how big an issue is that for republicans? >> massive when you consider some of the demographics that will be affected by any significant cuts to this bill. i mean, we're talking about elderly people, people in rural communities, obviously talking about children. pence got quite a bit of push back for saying this would have no on impact on medicaid or at least the cuts and we've had reports ranging from 14 million to 15 million to as many as 20 2 2 million. >> and they fry to dry to deemp cb about o numbers and using them when they support their own point. so that becomes a bit of a problem. i kept hearing so many talking about innovation, that it will spark innovation. if you put these blook grack gr into change the funding to the states, it will park innovation. the governors say we'll get less money and then suddenly innovate? >> republican governors almost standing in opposition.
2:09 am
>> let's talk about this refocused agenda this week. this is made in america week. which some would call it do as i say not as i do week from the family of donald trump and his business empire. because his ties are made overseas. ivanka trump right now her products as she has distanced herself from her company, but the ivanka trump label is made in overseas and even in china, there were labor be rightsed a vow indicates who were detained in dhooi china. >> i think it will bring attention into how he will find himself russia and health care and his jobs approach in terms of who his companies hire and what they make, where they make it, and who is affected by it. i think what is really interesting about all of this though is this concern with the trump family and how they handle their products isn't a new one.
2:10 am
we were talking about this in june 2016. and so why he hasn't made significant changes is just isn't clear. >> if you're a late night comedian, the material is easy. you just have a big table of trump and ivanka trump goods to open your show tonight. won't be surprised if that happens. gene scott, thank you. american factories right now are still humming. and that is because of market forces here. not really any specific policy, but growing economy and what is happening in the currency markets. the u.s. dollar hit a 13 year high right after the election. and then has fallen since then as excitement for trump's economiced a skr agenda cools. the dollar do you knwn about 6%. a weaker dollar makes u.s. goods more attractive too foreign buyers. the trump administration will be making decisions on important

2:35 am
program which has been a safety net program on the books for more than 50 years ensuring that some of our most vulnerable citizen, our disabled children, our low income seniors, receive the health care that they need. >> massively different characterization of what happens to medicaid. what does that mean for those on the fence like dean he willer, portman, and why is the vice president making the case for the bill and the president is no where to be seen on it with the exception of a few tweets? >> well, i mean, the vice president is someone who has been deeply involved in the conversation about medicaid before the president actually got this to politics. so this was something he was paying attention to as governor. what is interesting is that we haven't heard him or people from the trump administration now clearly articulate how this actually will strengthen
2:36 am
medicaid for poorer people, for kids, for the elderly for people in rural communities. what has been said most often from their opponents at least is that it could hurt millions and tens of millions of people from that. >> the argument being is that it is unsustainable in its current form, but it's only mike pence out there making that case. >> you deep hearing innovation which is the buzz word. if we don't -- if we cut medicaid or we slow the growth of medicaid and we put the onus on the states, that will spark innovation and that is something that the governors didn't buy it, they really didn't buy it, that you will give us less money for the most important thing we do and we'll innovate somehow? >> and their whole argument is that it will be difficult to innovate with fewer resources. we already are straped and stressed in trying to provide health care for some of our most vulnerable residents already. >> and it's those governors that they were hoping would give them
2:37 am
some cover and it did not because brian sandoval of nevada said he's not for it. other republican governors don't like it because it doesn't go far enough. so the same problem as in the senate. let's talk about russia and the oval office, how they thought they might attempt to defend that meeting. jay sekulow the president's lawyer out there on sunday talking about if there was anything nefarious, the secret service would have caught it. listen. >> i wonder why the secret service if this was neff far yus, why did the secret service allow the people in. that raised a question can with me. donald trump jr. said things should have been done differently, but that is not a violation of the law, it's nor process. >> and the secret service made clear the candidate was the only one under protection. but even if that was your
2:38 am
defense, will that help you win this argument? >> certainly not. i mean the reality is that there are is so little information relatively speaking that is made public about what actually was talked about at length in this meeting. i mean, we have the e-mails and we know what both parties have are said. but that is why are people in the senate and congress want to do an investigation just to hear the full extent of it.you can s been forthcoming, but almost da daily more information has come out, so it makes people have more questions. and that is why we have seen these polls is u s suggest that really have concerned about the relationship between with the campaign and russia. >> at the very least, it's sloppy. but it shows sort of the russian intelligence operation, how they were -- and there was an interesting thing i read in the "washington post" from a former cia officer that said everything we know about the meeting from who was involved to how it was
2:39 am
set up to how it unfolded is in line with what intelligence analysts would sxigtth expect an oversure this a russian operation to look like and the campaign's willingness to take the meeting is failing to report to u.s. authorities may have been the green light russia was looking for a to launch a aggressive phase of intervention in the u.s. election. so collusion aside, or the accusations aside, phase of int u.s. election. so collusion aside, or the accusations aside, phase of intn in the u.s. election. so collusion aside, or the accusations aside,phase of inte in the u.s. election. so collusion aside, or the accusations aside, it shows russia's attentions. >> and the president keeps harping on my son trump jr. what is important, it wasn't just trump jr. in that meeting. at the paul manafort, the campaign manager and jared kushner who is now a white house adviser and from what we've seen, it could have been more that be eight people. more information still it coming out. >> the focus really on this, akhmetshrinat akhmetshin. read about this guy over the weekend. master of the dark arts some
