>> firefighters said they had to kill the snake to save the woman and she is expected to recover. some people believe that president trump could slide attorney general jeff sessions over to homeland security to replace new chief of staff john kelly. >> donald trump remains unhappy with jeff sessions as attorney general and jeff sessions isn't planning to go anywhere. >> a major joint counterterrorism operation to disrupt a terrorist plot to bring down an airplane. >> they believe a terrorist plot to bring down an airplane was, quote, islamic inspired. >> venezuela is hours away from a vote that could further undermine the country's democracy. >> the government banned protests but that didn't stop some demonstrators and every day people out on the street and using improvised explosives to make these make-shift bombs.
4:01 am
>> i have a boa constrictor stuck to my face! >> ma'am, you have a what? >> announcer: this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. breaking news. the u.s. just conducted an anti-missile defense system test from alaska. term natural high altitude system shot down a missile over the pacific. >> today's test was the 15th successful test for that weapons system. all this as north korea sends this warning to the u.s. if washington continues to cling to strong sanctions, as they call them, they will respond with what they call firm action after president trump blasted china owner pyongyang's latest missile test. on the same day two u.s. b-1
4:02 am
bombers flew over the peninsula in a show of force. >> hours after president trump's tweets, chinese president xi jinping over a massive military display. china is not the only country flexing its military muscles. russia is showing off his fire power holding its annual navy day show. first, here is will ripley in beijing. tell us about the u.s.latest th to the u.s. >> reporter: so many fast moving developments in this part of the world. read to you what north korea has said in their threat to the united states. the u.s. need to stop by clearing understanding the strategic status of the dprk which soared up as the world's nuclear and power. ominous words from a country just tested icbn officials believe it could strike up and down the u.s. west coast and los angeles and seattle and further
4:03 am
east edwards denver, chicago and by early next year possibly a weapon strike new york and washington. the successful test of the defense system is certainly going to irritate china, which considers that missile defense system which components of which are rolling into south korea right now in response to the north korean missile test as a direct threat to their own national security in beijing. we don't have an official response from china yet but keep monitoring that here in the chinese capital. they will not respond, however, to the tweet storm by president trump. the tweets accusing china of doing nothing to solve north korea and implying there may be trade consequences as a result. this is a dramatic shift from the language that president trump has been using. the tweets in praise of china and its president xi jinping and this statement just a couple of weeks ago in france. >> well, he is a friend of mine. i have great respect for him. we have gotten to know each other very well. a great leader. he's a very talented man.
4:04 am
i think he's a very good man. he loves china. i can tell you he loves china. he wants to do what is right for china. we have asked him for some assistance with respect to north korea. probably he could do a little bit more but we will find out. >> reporter: during the overnight hours in the uthe chinese president xi jinping did give a speech hours after president trump's tweets and not acknowledging them and not mentioning north korea directly but he did say it's important for china to grow its military. the people's liberation army which is marking 90th anniversary, xi jinping presided over a massive military parade at a training site that includes mock-ups of potential targets, including the presidential palace in taiwan and even u.s. military assets. mock-ups of those in this region as well in preparation of any possible scenario. so clearly things are ratcheting up here and china showing off
4:05 am
its latest stealth fighters and only nuclear capable icbns on the heels of north korea testing its second and analysts say most advanced intercontinental ballistic they have ever had and you see all of these different countries in the region and the united states as well scrambling to figure out their own responses. >> will ripley watching it from beijing, thank you. president trump's tweet on twitter. here is what he wrote. errol louis is with us, cnn political commentator and political anchor for spectrum news and also is tom. tom, first to you. what do you make of what is happening there with the thad missile system and how could that rattle china? where do we go from here?
4:06 am
>> it's clear that we know that the u.s. government knows and understands they need to do something. there is a flyover yesterday after the missile test by north korea that they coordinated with japan. so there has been a response. when you put that against the backdrop of what trump is saying in public here with these tweets, it's interesting. right? the bigger problem and the bigger concern i think domestically is whether or not trump understands the depths of this problem. on the one hand, the actions and the reactions flyover and missile testing point to kind of the automated response of, you know, strong government. but when he put out tweets like that, you know, saying he is going to rely on china for this, it's surprising and you really can't rely on china, to be frank. >> earlier this year, the president had said he would be willing to talk or to meet with
4:07 am
kim jong-un under the right circumstances which would be a very bold move, obviously. but is diplomatic dialogue even realistic at this point based on what we are hearing from north korea this morning and from president trump, errol? >> well, there has not been a question of diplomacy at all. i think the president is quite wrong to suggest that this could easily be solved by china. not like they pick up the phone and call kim jong-un drop all of your weapons and the entire reason for your regime to exist and subject yourself to what led to saddam hussein and losing their power and their lives. it's simply not going to happen, nor is diplomacy going to take us down that path either. what we got to see and what we have yet to see is some kind of international effort where it's not simply the united states
4:08 am
blaming china for not, quote, easily solving this but five-party nations, all of the nuclear powers getting together, that there is sort of a world community as expressed through either the u.n. or some other body bringing sort of a concerted effort to try and surround this regime, contain this regime. perhaps undermine this regime just through information by working with defectors, by talking about human rights and sort of the universal values that even north koreans might be interested in if they could just get the information. something like that is much more likely to succeed than the saber rattling and sort of sending planes to fly next to a dictatorship. >> we have pictures here of china and the military mite that they are showing off this morning. i'm wondering, first of all, tom about the timing of that. when we hear the statement from north korea on they call themselves new world power for
4:09 am
its military mite, and they use the word delusional, i mean, what do you make of what is coming out of north korea and this display coming out of china simultaneously? >> it's clear that north korea is testing trump here. they are testing a new player, new global player, and they are trying to see how he is going to handle this. when you put this in context here, this goes back to why you have to have some stability within the white house, no matter, you know, if you're democrat or republican, whichever administration you are. this goes back to why this continued chaos inside the cabinet, inside the white house has been such a problem for them because, you know, kim jong-un is not going to wait and see if, you know, reince priebus and steve bannon get together and, you know, are friend at the end of the day. whether jared or ivanka gets
4:10 am
behind either one of them. he doesn't care about that. it's a constant reminder when you're the president of the united states the world does not wait to see what you're going to do. you have a constant crisis and disastrous tossed at your doorstep and you have to be ready for these things. >> tom and errol, always grateful to have your thoughts with us today. thank you. >> thanks. >> thanks. there is heightened security at australia's airports this morning after police say they have stopped a terrorist plot to bring down a plane. four people have been arrested in overnight raids in sydney. investigators say they found suspicious devices during those searches. anna coren joins us from the sydney airport. what can you tell us about the plan and how they found this plane. >> reporter: well, victor, the government has described this as an elaborate credible conspiracy to blow up an australian plane and kill innocent civilians. it certainly had intelligence
4:11 am
and security agents scrambling in this country but they certainly managed to foil this terror plot to blow up a passenger plane. raids were conducted last night on five properties across sydney. four men have been arrested. those men have not yet been charged under australia terrorism laws they can be held up to a week without being charged. police, obviously, working to gather that vital evidence. we know that this is an ongoing police operation, that if could last for days. we also are learning that suspicious devices have been found at several of these locations. now, obviously, because it involves a plane, security has been beefed up in airports across the country. international, as well as domestic. we know that police presence is being beefed up and additional screening as far as baggage is concerned. we spoke to some of the passengers here and while not deterred from traveling, they
4:12 am
are certainly feeling on alert. let's take a listen. >> anxious to be on this because i have traveled a lot, you know? i was in europe when the bombings were happening and everything. so this is quite scary it's happening here in australia. >> they are doing a damn good job here, so we should feel confident to go. so i am. so i am, i'm going. if i go down, god bless me! >> joo there is really a feeling here that terrorism happens overseas, not here in australia. so this terror plot is a real wake-up call for this country. but in saying that, the government has said this is the 13th significant foiled terror plot and because this involves airports and planes, there is a feeling that this is a far more sophisticated plot and could have connections to overseas terror networks. now, i should add since 2014, there has been a sharp increase in the number of home-grown
4:13 am
terror cells and terrorists, so police certainly on heightened alert and as i say, that operation will be continuing for the next few days. >> anna coren for us at the sydney airport, thank you so much. still to come, to attorney general jeff sessions be moved to the homeland security department? lindsey graham has some thoughts on that. >> irresponsible and wrong and recent comments from the president and not from democrats but also from some police officers too. hear why. we are six months into the trump administration. the first democrat has officially independence the 2020 introducing maryland's john delanie. he's with us next. that's mom taking care of business. but who takes care of mom? office depot/office max. this week, filler paper just one cent with five dollar minimum purchase. ♪taking care of business.

4:17 am
a look at the white house there. beautiful morning after one heck of a week. >> yes. it's going to be the first week for general john kelly headed there tomorrow for his first day
4:18 am
as white house chief of staff. he is leaving a vacancy at homeland security and a report now that department staffers are discussing the possibility that attorney general jeff sessions could fill the void at dhs, a move that some republicans are calling a bad idea. senator lindsey graham on twitter said this. >> rentecently, the publics has expressed his frustration with attorney general jeff sessions stemming from sessions decision to recuse himself in the russia investigation. last week, jeff sessions doubled down he made the right decision on that recusal. the president is saying the battle is not over. president is lashing out at republicans in a tweet saying this.
4:19 am
>> meanwhile, democrats are urging republicans to move on from this debate. house minority leader nancy pelosi encouraged gop leader to start working with democrats in a bipartisan way. >> now, we have to improve and update the affordable care act. we want to do so in a bipartisan way. that will only happen with your continued involvement. so let's appreciate those who voted right. when i say right, not only correctly but did the right thing for the american people. let's appreciate them. let's thank them but let's keep the heat on for the others that we need to draw over. >> we are six months into the trump administration and now a maryland democrat says he is ready to run for president against donald trump in 2020. yes, these start earlier and earlier every cycle. congressman john delanie told
4:20 am
"the washington post" this. well, let's see if he is ready for this discussion. he is with us now. congressman john delanie of maryland. 2020 presidential candidate. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> you are pushing this line closer and closer to the previous election. most important question why do you want to be president? >> i want to be president because i don't think we are having the most important conversation we need to be having as a country which is about the future. i think the world is changing very rapidly, technology, automation and global interconnections and incredibly powerful forces and changing our economy and the nature of war. we need to think differently about our resources and our security threats and i think so much of our debate in politics is backward looking where we are relitigating the past and fighting about things we have been fighting about for decade. i'd like a more future focused
4:21 am
orientation to the presidential debate and to our leadership and so that is one reason. the second reason and maybe the most obvious reason is politics is broken. and i do think we need to rise up above what has happened in our political system so we can get things done for the american people. and we need to come together. >> bl efore you get to a genera election if you win the primary you have to get through a democratic primary in a time democrats are so passionately opposed to the agenda of this president, that the resistance is the leading edge of the democratic party. >> yep. >> you are described by many a moderate democrat. how do you win the primaries as a moderate democrat in this environment? >> i certainly think of myself as a progressive in terms of where my instincts and values are which comes from my background which is kind of infused with a social justice orientation to the world but i see bipartisan solutions.
4:22 am
i was ranked one of the most bipartisan members of the congress and because of my background in business i started two companies prior to running for office. i think i'm the only ceo of a public company serving in the congress. i do think about market-based solutions and how government and the private sector can work together to achieve those goals. my instincts are clearly progressive and i think most democrats are in the same place in terms of the kind of things they want to achieve in the world. look at this health care debate, right? every democrat i know serving in the congress wants every american to have health care. we think it's a fundamental right. there is a great discussion to have about the best way to get there. but if you contrast that to where the president and republican party is, they -- they want to take health care away from tens of millions of people and how i think about that. i think the divisions are not as deep in the democratic party as people think. i think the ways we may go about achieving some of our goals, that is where the really
4:23 am
important discussion need to be happening. >> let's talk about another element of policy. the big story this morning. north korea. >> yes. >> the president has said that obama's -- president obama's approach of strategic patience is over. we have seen that what i call his approach to strategic impatience is not working. what is your approach to dealing with north korea? >> obviously, this is the most significant threat facing our country right now in terms of potential direct military threat based on what they are doing. as you know, north korea has been called the land of bad options and it's true because the options in terms of what we do there are limited. i think the right approach is kind of twofold. one, i do agree with the sanctions that we passed in the congress this week. i do think we are going to have to move towards more sanctions, secondary sanctions targeting companies that do business with north korea. we have to build a broader global coalition to do that. >> specifically in china? >> yes. i mean, at the end of the day, china is providing with north
4:24 am
korea with most of the staples they need for their economy. but i think we need kind of a broader coalition to do that. we had a lot of success with iran and we have to remember that sanctions take a while to work, right? it really takes a while to get these things in place. >> do we have a while? >> that is the thing. two other things. we had a very successful missile test last night, as you know. and we have had them recently. i think the united states missile defense capabilities are very strong but i do think we need more investments there. if you think about the next generation of technologies coming down the line, i think we need to be realistic and get ourselves to the point we have a missile defense capability that is really foolproof. the final thing we need to do is. >> very quickly. >> i hear what you're saying there. my question is any of that new? these are things both president obama and president trump try. i want your opinion on one more thing because we have time constraints this morning. >> sure.
4:25 am
>> one of your house colleagues tweeted out something about the new white house chief of star who is starting in the morning. this from congresswoman barbara lee by posting this. do you agree? >> no. listen, i think general kelly has served our country well. i was supportive of him in his position at homeland security. i think the problem, you know, with the white house and this is the irony of it all. the president came in and supposedly as a business leader and, in reality, he was really a business promoter. i can't imagine a white house that has been more poorly managed than what we have in front of us and i think the thing people aren't talking about. no one runs an organization like this where people are kind of switched around kind of for political or personal wins. >> we will see if the new -- the new white house chief of staff is able to put that in order. but just so we are clear on this. you do not agree with the assessment of congresswoman
4:26 am
barbara lee? let me be sure here. she says the president is militarizing the white house and putting our executive branch in the hands of an extremist. this seems like a simple yes or no. do you agree with her? >> i do not think that general kelly is an extremist. >> representative john delaney the first in the race for the presidential election. some are asking is president trump being taken seriously? >> like when you guys put somebody in the car and you're protecting their head, you know? the way you put their hand -- like, don't hit their head and they have just killed somebody. don't hit their head. i said you can take the hand away, okay? i love you, couch.

4:33 am
there are other police groups, including police unions, who are defending the president saying, listen. he was just joking. defending police one of the items we talked about this week. jam-packed news this week from the white house. arguably one of the biggest weeks for the president and this party i guess we call it a failure to repeal and replace obamacare. the president tweeted this. let's talk about this now. a. scott boldin who used to be chairman of the washington, d.c. democratic party with us and brian robertson. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> simple question.
4:34 am
is repeal and replace dead? >> no, it's not dead. let's not forget that it wasn't until march of r689 it passed the house for the final time. >> for the final time but there were incremental steps toward passage on the way. it didn't die in the senate before it got passed into 2010 for the final time. >> there were a lot of hang-ups and a lot of really dubious deals cornhusker kick bank and gator ai gatorade and it passed the house. there is talking having a bipartisan deal. maybe they have to do that. i just don't know how it's going to work when democrats have no incentive to work with the trump administration or senate republicans. they just want to stop anything. you saw the celebration on their side when mccain voted no early in the morning this week.
4:35 am
they don't want anything to pass. so the hopes of bipartisan bill are not good on. this is on mcconnell's shoulder but i think he can get something through. he has to get one more vote. that is not that far off. >> ed that democrats don't want anything to pass. from your perspective? >> that's simply not true. you're not invited to the table to be a part of the discussion how can you be blamed for not contributing to repealing and replacing obamacare? the fact those are bad bills. obamacare is imperfect. the democrats have said let's repair it. the democrats say, no, we will keep our promises to the american people but what promises are they keeping? only 12% of the american people like whatever five or six health care bills that the senate republicans are trying to pass they are keeping promises to themselves and their wealthy donors and why we don't have a deal. >> that is the problem. is that what the american people have been told about the
4:36 am
republican plans is that all of these people will lose their health insurance. >> different insurance. they go out and buy different insurance. not necessarily without insurance. some people in the medicaid plop population yes, they will. >> the american people will be uninsured but the american aren't told is what we are doing now is unsustainable that this is borrowed money and not the tax revenue to cover these expenses. we don't talk about the physical recklessness of what we are doing right now. that is never discussed. >> if all of what you said is true why couldn't the republicans with the votes that they had with the mantjorities both houses get it passed? >> this is somebody president trump mocked during the campaign. >> you i think it's personal? >> i think it very well could be personal. how do you not take it personally when somebody makes fun of you for being a p.o.w.? that is pretty serious.
4:37 am
>> what difference does it make? this is a huge embarrassment to the republican party and those who follow the republicans. there are five or six bills. this was skinny repeal. this skinny repeal was take away the personal and employment mandate. the vein of the republican existence and it still failed. this is a republican party who is at war with itself and before they take on health care or infrastructure or tax repeal, they got to fix what is wrong internally. >> let me move on to the moves that are happening within the administration. john kelly, secretary of dhs, moving to the white house to chief of staff. a report from politico the department staffers are talking about the possibility that a.g. jeff sessions will be moved over to dhs. now, we have heard over the last week that republicans say if the president fires jeff session, that will hurt his connection with business base because he was -- jeff sessions held all of these views when the president was a democrat. if jeff sessions moves to dhs
4:38 am
does that hurt the president? he keeps a position in the cabinet but he doesn't get that stain of having fired the man. >> i don't think moving jeff session is an option. we have had the leading senators who do the confirmation hearings say we don't want this. senator grassley says we are not doing a a.g. confirmation hearing. i don't have time for it and that would be a terrible move. attorney general jeff sessions had a rough conf. >> senator ben sasse of republican saying we are not going to stand for a recess appointment. so there is going to be some really tough resistance in the senate and, right now, what the president need to be doing is not picking fights over
4:39 am
confirmations with the senate. we need to be filling the department of state vacancies. all of these vacancies in the other departments that have been empty. and getting obamacare repealed. >> if he is bad as an a.g. according to trump, he is going to be bad at dhs. >> but he won't have been recused from the russian investigation over dhs. >> that is true and what i was going to get to. good segway. this is not about sessions' competence. it is about moving him and putting someone in as a.g. who, one won't recuse himself and will fire mueller and if he doesn't he will carry trump's water on this. the danger for donald trump on this is you got an independent investigation going on of russian collusion and that as a former prosecutor, any move he makes, whether he fires sessions, moves sessions, or does anything is being watched by mueller and it's another fact in the trail towards object instruction of justice.
4:40 am
it's not dispositive but it is a fact because you combine his tweets with what he does with sessions, and you got another problem and another issue for mueller to investigate. >> we will see fountain president goes back to twitter to continue to criticize the attorney general. >> it's dumb. he should stop doing it. >> i was thrilled to see him talking about obamacare this morning. that is fantastic. that is progress. >> it's dumb for him, it's good for democrats. >> we have to wrap. thank you both. watch "state of the union" with jake tapper today. republican senator susan collins who voted against the health bill skinny repeal is on the show and jake will also talk with senator bernie sanders. today at 9:00 a.m. eastern on cnn. it was a chaotic week in washington and it was the first week on the job for the president's new communications director. what we are till learning about anthony scaramucci. al gore is back on the big screen highlighting the biggest threat we face as a nation. we will talking to the directors of his new film. copd makes it hard to breathe.

44 minutes past the hour. insults. threats. profanity laced rants. welcome to sunday! the president's new communications director anthony scaramucci, he had a pretty wild first week. >> a rough couple of days. let's take a look what cnn's host of "reliable sources" brian stelter. a lot happened. priebus out and scaramucci in. how would you describe the decisions to shift the team? >> one of the most difficult week in the trump's administration six and a half months so far. i remember in school the report cards i would get as a kid the grade i feared most was when the teacher would write "needs improvement." not even a letter grade but needs improvement. i think where we are with the communications job after scaramucci and sanders leading
4:46 am
the way. a lot of self-inflicted news. the interview with the new yorker being the most prominent example. ryan said he tape recorded the interview where scaramucci went on that rant and labeled it insane scaramucci interview. what is what ryan said. >> i got off the phone and i needed to talk to someone about it because he was, frankly, the most insane conversation i had ever had with a government official. i downloaded the recordings from my recorder into my computer and i haven't told anyone this but i named it insane scaramucci interview because it was just so completely unlike any on the record conversation i had had with a spokesman for the white house in 20 years of covering washington. and so -- i knew how newsworthy it was. >> it's notable scaramucci said
4:47 am
