pyongyang says its plan to launch the missiles will be in place within days. >> the statement also mailbox president trump for speaking from a "golf range," where it says he let out a load of nonsense about fire and fury, failing to grasp the conversation. they say discussion is not logical with a guy of bereft reason. joining with us more is anna cornen live in seoul. >> reporter: interesting how kim jong-un and north korea are taking the upper hand here following those comments made by donald trump a few days ago. as you say, they did come out in state media this morning saying they are seriously examining a strike directed at guam which as we know is a u.s. sovereign territory, home to a strategic u.s. naval and air force base, as well as a population of some 160,000 people.
this strike involving four intermediate-range missiles with nuclear warheads would be ready within days. they would fly over japan. they would be airborne for approximately 17 minutes according to north korean state media. and they would land some 30 to 40 kilometers off the coast of guam. outside the territorial waters but inside the u.s. economic zone which as miguel mentioned in the intro would send a very strong message to the u.s. indeed. now, here in south korea, the national security council with the south korean president has wrapped up. they issued a statement a short time ago saying that north korea must stop escalating tension and stressing that war will not benefit any side. they say the threat to guam was absurd. we need to remember that here in south korea that there are at least 1,000 artillery places
along the border to north korea directed to the city of some ten million people. whilst the south korean president in the past extented this willingness to engage in dialogue with north korea, in the past couple of days he said any provocation will be met with response. and he's looking to beef up defenses here. >> anna coren in seoul where it is 6:00 in the evening. thank you for that. we want to bring in our cnn politics reporter from washington to help understand all this. good morning. >> good morning. >> so the messaging out of this white house, whether we're talking north korea, health care, whatever we're talking about, that seems to be one of the biggest problems that they still can't get right. i want to play sound and chat with you about the president and his secretary of state yesterday. >> north korea best not make any
more threats to the united states. they will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. >> i think americans should sleep well at night. i have no concerns about this particular rhetoric of the last few days. >> point, counterpoint. >> is the white house staff, the cabinet, they getting better at -- at managing the president's sort of off-the-cuff, one-off remarks on things like north korea? >> it's hard to say whether they're getting better. this white house has shown that off the cuff is something they prefer. you know, certainly it is unusual to say the least to see a u.s. president ad-libbing when it comes to north korea and international diplomacy. that's not the way it's traditionally done.
typically the white house would workshop and discuss with diplomats. they would typically have more people in the state department who work on the issue, confirmed by the senate. they would go to those people and figure out exactly what the specific words they want to say are. internationally, these things are parsed carefully. yes, it is absolutely unusual that you have the president of the united states sort of off the cuff making remarks on north korea. and certainly remarks like the ones we just heard. again, the white house has sort of signaled that this is by design. this is the way they want to do things. i don't know that there is a better for them. this is their messaging strategy. >> you know, the "wall street journal" in an op-ed defending this stance from the president and the sharp language from the president saying this, "while the president's words were unusually colorful, the communist-style language may have been part of the message. kim jong-un isn't the only one what can raise the geopolitical temperature." there was criticism all day
yesterday. the president did not sound like a skilled diplomat. the president caught other diplomats offguard. but the general with a different take on that. >> yeah, certainly. you know, there's this sort of nixon and china theory floating around, as well, this idea that being unpredictable and being bellicose keeps other countries on their toes. you know, certainly the president has said time and time again he doesn't want to telegraph the u.s. actions before they happen. he doesn't want to take things off the table. he wants to come across as strong. he sees himself as a master negotiator. and he is going to follow his gut in that regard when it comes to international diplomacy. you're right, certainly even if the strategy was this type of rhetoric, it is concerning diplomats around the world that they're not being given a clear strategy and it that's still being conducted on the fly. that's probably their concern for the most part. then you can quibble about what the actual words should be.
>> it also has implications for domestic policy, as well. you have the fight now between the president and mitch mcconnell, the republican senate majority leader. he needs, mitch mcconnell, to get any sort of policy through the congress. he needs his guiding hand essentially. health care went down -- i can't even keep track of how many times it went down in flames. it seems that the messaging issue and white house that's able to focus on the policy is becoming a much bigger problem. >> yeah. the fight between donald trump and mitch mcconnell is remarkable. remind yourself these two men are supposed to be from the same party. this kind of sniping back and forth is something you expect to see from a president and senate majority leader that are from different parties. and yet these men who are supposed to be on the same page are taking swipes at each other
in public. >> let's talk about the swipes and listen to one in particular. mitch mcconnell on the president's expectations. this was monday. let's listen to this. >> our new president had, of course, has not been in this line of work before. and i think had excessive expectation business how quickly things happen in the democratic process. >> yesterday the president of the united states swiping back, senator mitch mcconnell said, "i had excessive expectations, but i don't think so. after seven years of hearing repeal and replace why not done?" remarkable to see that kind of dispute in public. >> yeah, absolutely. to air out that dirt laundry in public and take pot shots at each other. it signals as we've seen in the polls the president does not have high approval ratings. and what that is going to do is give republicans cover to diverge from him. we've seen it with health care.
they do not feel that they have to tow the party line. they do not feel that the president is leading the party in a particular direction. you've seen it with north korea, as well, to tie it back to the previous conversation. john mccain came out with a strongly worded statement criticizing the way the president approached the issue. this is someone in congress who's considered a hawk for sure. who is not afraid of strong conversation. this is a symptom of the fact that the president does not have the political capital you would typically expect for a first-term president this early into the administration with the same party controlling both houses of congress. truly remarkable. >> thank you very much. >> thanks, come back in a few minutes. thank you. >> thank you. rising tension with north korea finally breaking wall street's calm. global stocks are down after u.s. stocks closed lower. a response to the president's fiery warning to north korea and north korea's threat to guam.
for months stocks have coasted to record highs. now investors are showing signs of caution. we can see it in gold, for example. a typical safe haven. more than 1% to a two-month high. and wall street's fear gauge up, too, up 21% this week. the vix index had previously been trading at historically low levels. the dollars, once a safe bet in the global economy, down 8% this year. of course north korea isn't the only catalyst for caution here. companies released disappointing earnings reports this week. overall, though, corporate profits are strong. the year, 2017, on track for the strongest growth in six years. all average vs. had a fantastic run -- averages have had a fantastic run, up double digits. defense stocks had a great day. they profited as shares of the other markets fell. something not unusual with international tension. >> and my fear index up 2%. >> your fear index at
historicalliy low levels. the state department believes employees at the embassy in havana last year were targeted by a sonic device that caused them hearing loss. two staffers experienced such serious health problems they had to return to the u.s. for treatment, according to a state department official. the workers were not in the same place at the same time. and also reported a variety of concussion-like symptoms. >> the fbi looking into the case. the trump administration responding to the incident by expelling two cuban diplomats from their embassy in washington in may. cuban officials call the expulsion an overreaction. the cuban foreign ministry says it is taking the matter with great seriousness. a republican senator's theory of why john mccain voted against the senate health care plan left even a radio host stunned. >> he has a brain tumor now. that vote occurred at 1:30 in the morning. some of that might have factored in. >> really? >> more of ron johnson's comments and what he's saying now.

15 minutes past the hour. a surprising new development in the russia investigation. we have now learned fbi agents raided the home of former trump campaign manager paul manafort. that raid last month, confiscating materials for special counsel robert mueller's investigation. they used a so-called no-knock warrant to enter manafort's virginia home. it's an unusual tactic in a case already under investigation for months. >> sources tell cnn the raid took trump's team by surprise and rattled cages in the president's inner circle. why did feds take action? cnn's jessica schneider with more. >> reporter: it was a surprise raid where the aim was to secure material that paul manafort presumably hadn't already turned over to the feds. fbi agents descended on his alexandria, virginia, apartment predawn, according to the "washington post," and seized financial records, tax records, and some documents that manafort had already turned over to senate investigators.
the fact that this raid happened as a surprise and in the darkness of those early morning hours on july 26th, it signifies that the special counsel may be sending a message and getting serious when it comings to paul manafort and the russia investigation. paul manafort's spokesman confirmed the raid but reiterated that manafort has "consistently cooperated with law enforcement and other serious inquiries" and did so on this occasion, as well. the raid came one day after paul manafort talked behind closed doors with senate intelligence committee staff. cnn has learned that federal investigators have become suspicious of manafort after they turned up intercepted communications from suspected russian operatives discussing russian efforts to work with manafort to gather information that could hurt hillary clinton's bid for the white house. investigators are looking into his lobbying work for a pro-russia political party in ukraine. >> jessica, thank you for that. wisconsin senator ron
johnson expressing regret for his comments about fellow republican john mccain. johnson told a chicago radio show that mccain's brain cancer may have played a role in his dramatic and decisive vote that derailed the senate bill to repeal obamacare. >> i'm not going to speak for john mccain. you know -- he has a brain tumor right now. that vote occurred at 1:30 in the morning. some of that might have factored in. >> you really think that played a factor in his judgment call? >> again. i don't know exactly what -- i don't want to speak for any senator. i really thought john was going to vote yes to send it to conference at 10:30 at night. by 1:00, 1:30, he voted no. i don't know what -- what was on his minds. >> mccain's spokesperson tells cnn johnson's comments were "bizarre and deeply unfortunate." johnson later walked back his remarks saying the vote came at the end of a long day for everyone, and he should have
more eloquently expressed sympathy for what senator mccain is going through. dramatic rescue by the coast guard, plucking a navy pilot off -- from the water off the florida keys after his jet fighter crashed into the ocean. officials say the pilot ejected from the aircraft about 20 miles from the key west naval air station. a coast guard helicopter crew observed an emergency smoke signal and responded quickly to the scene. the incident under investigation. the pilot who's not been identified suffered no serious injuries. he was conducting training operations when the plane went down. lucky guy. a feisty feline may have given the st. louis cardinals a new rallying cry for their playoff hopes. andy scholes with the "bleacher report" next. here ya go. awesome, thank you. thank you. that's... not your car. your car's ready! wrong car... this is not your car? i would love to take it, but no. oh, i'm so sorry about that. you guys wanna check it out? it's someone else's car... this is beautiful. what is this?

fresh off of winning the national championship at clemson, quarterback deshaun watson making his nfl debut last night. >> andy scholes with more in the "bleacher report." good morning, guys. the last time we saw watson he was throwing a game-winning touchdown against the game. fans excited about his future after picking him in the first round of the nfl draft. clemson two hours from charlotte. and tons of clemson fans filling the stands to see watson's nfl debut against the panthers. watson did not disappoint, running for a 15-yard touchdown in the third quarter. he looked good in this game. panthers, though, would go on to win 27-17. an even better story than watson's debut for the texans was the return of david
quizenberry. the offensive lineman playing in his first game since being diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma three years ago. he finished his last chemotherapy treatment in early april, ringing the bell at indiana's hospital in houston. he got emotional returning to the field last night. >> before the game, i was thinking back, thinking back on how long it's been and -- and tonight was perfect. >> i think that's hands down such a cool story. the guy's a warrior, a fighter. inspiration to all of us. i think d.q. deserves every bit of headline and praise everybody gives him. he's a hell of a player and guy. we couldn't be prouder to have him on our team. cardinals and royals. bases loaded, down 5-4 in the sixth inning. a cat ran out on to the field. and you have to check this out. the poor groundskeeper had to run out and get him. the cat was just scratching him, biting him when he was running off with him. the game would resume.
very next pitch, molina hits a grand slam. that cat being called a hero and will forever be known in st. louis as the rally cat. the cardinals win the game 8-5. finally, minnesota gophers' head coach brought in a fan named kyle who's currently a patient at the university hospital and had a surprise for one of the gophers. he was going to be on scholarship. >> each day, just you wake up and it's a new day. >> come over here. come over here. come over here. come over here.

north korea says president trump is bereft of reason and letting out a load of nonsense. what will the president do now that pyongyang has leveled another threat at a u.s. territory? and were employees at the u.s. embassy in cuba targeted with a covert device -- hearing loss for some in havana raising questions this morning. welcome back to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm miguel marquez in for dave briggs this week who i hope is taking a nice vacation. nice to see you. 31 minutes past the hour. just a day after the president promised fire and fury if north korea made another threat against the u.s., pyongyang does just that, leveling a very fierce, very specific threat to attack a u.s. territory, taking some personal shots at the president along the way. now the world waits to see what if anything the commander in chief decides to do in response.
>> north korea says it is "seriously examining a plan to launch a missile strike targeting the sea about 20 miles off the coast of guam," where the u.s. has two military bases. the launch of ballistic missiles would signal a crucial warning to u.s. pyongyang says its plan to launch missiles will be in place in days. >> the statement also mailbox president trump for speaking from "a golf range" where he says he let out a load of nonsense about fire and fury, failing to grasp the ongoing, grave situation. the north korean statement says sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason and only absolute force can work on him. joining us with the latest in seoul, south korea, is anna coren. certainly no one's surprised by north korea's speaking so strongly. the u.s. president's remarks might come as a bit more of a surprise. >> reporter: yeah, that's right, miguel. we haven't heard anything
official from the south korean government as far as those comments coming from the u.s. president. certainly speaking to people here in seoul, they are somewhat bemuzzled, confused that he would make those statements, that he would go to somewhat provoke north korea when tensions are already high. obviously yesterday we heard that response from north korea to those fire and fury statements saying that it would envelope guam in flames. today we got some details of that plan to seriously examine a strike directed at guam. an island in the western pacific. it is a u.s. sovereign territory. it is home to a strategic naval and air force base for the united states. it's also home to some 160,000 people. this plan would involve four intermediate-range missiles with nuclear warheads. this is according to kcna, north
korea state media. they would be ready in days. they would fly over japan, approximately airborne for some 17 minutes. they would land 30 to 40 kilometers off the coast of guam outside the territorial waters but inside the economic zone for the united states. obviously sending a very strong message if, in fact, that plan was put into place. as far as south korea, the national security council met with the south korean president, warning north korea to stop with the straerhetoric. we need to remember that there are some 1,000 artillery pieces on the border from north korea aimed at the city of seoul of ten million people. so in the last couple of days, south korea certainly wanting to beef up its own defenses. >> tensions always high there. higher today. anna coren for us.
thank you very much. let's bring in our cnn politics reporter in washington to help break this down. good morning. you know, the coordination, response from the american administration on the north korea threat, getting an awful lot of tension. the "washington post" this morning, a lack of coordination on north korea. when we looky at the commentary from senior administration officials and the president himself, you know, it's hard to see kind of one message here. i want you to listen to the president on tuesday and rex tillerson, secretary of state, yesterday on a plane to guam. >> north korea best not make any more threats to the united states. they will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. >> i think americans should sleep well at night. i have no concerns about this particular rhetoric of the last few days. >> the u.s. defense secretary,
james mattis, weighing in with a statement that really had very strong language in it. the dprk must choose to stop i-270ing itself and stand down its pursuit of nuclear weapons the dprk should cease consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of it says people. the state department saying they are speaking with one voice in washington. it sounds like -- >> a cacophony, if i can use such a word this early. >> singing different tunes. what does this tell us about the muddled message from the white house? >> you laid it out really well. certainly we can all see with our own eyes that different people within the administration are saying very different things about the nature of the threat from north korea and the united states posture toward it. and certainly you know, the bellicose language of president trump caught everyone's attention. but it is absolutely true that the way that this message was put out there is also newsworthy and unusual. you know, typically an
administration regardless of what position they want to take, whether it's aggressive, conciliatory, whether it's dismissive, typically an administration would gather its top diplomats, would gather its experts in the field, would come up with very specific language because overs every single word is going to be analyzed by the receivers of those words. typically those words would be chosen very carefully. here you have president trump, according to staff, speaking off the cuff and using whatever words he feels appropriate. and then his top diplomat and defense secretary seem to be also taking their own way on this. that is what is particularly unusual about it. not just the way but the way it's being rolled out. >> the language and the lack of coordination on message is one thing. but i mean, if you want to advance the ball, if you want to get your policy done -- in this case, it is to get north korea to give up its nuclear weapons,
the problem and the logic of nuclear weapons is the more tough the president sounds, the more it encourages north korea to advance their nuclear weapon program as quickly as possible. is there growing frustration in the halls of congress, in the administration, that they're not going to get to the policy goal if the message and -- if they can't come up with a plan that can be sort of enforced? you do need discipline at the end of the day, yes? >> certainly we've seen over the years north korea as a particularly difficult problem for the united states. and that has not changed. there are members of congress who are increasingly frustrated with the administration. notable hawk john mccain put out a strongly worded statement in response to the president's own words on tuesday. keep in minds, as well, one of
the -- keep in mind, as well, one of the major criticisms of the administration is they lag far behind their predecessors who themselves were not particularly praised at appointing and nominating and confirming people to the top positions. and there are a number of key positions in the state department that the administration has not chosen someone for, let alone managed to get them through the senate confirmation process. i wrote a story on monday which was trump's 200th day in office, about how far behind he is on some of his predecessors by, you know, over 100 nominees in some cases. >> why are they so behind? is it -- there's been reporting that rex tillerson's been frustrated because some of his choices haven't been accepted by the white house. >> yeah. you hear a number of things. you hear cabinet officials are not able to put their recommendations in place, that there's a bottleneck at the white house is, you know, moving vetting -- which isn't, you know, moving vetting fast enough, placing a high enough priority on getting positions
confirmed. perhaps also a problem where the trump administration seems to not want to hire anyone who has criticized the president publicly in the past. >> right. >> there are a number of obstacles. you know, as much as the white house has blamed slowness by the democrats, they certainly have not been putting forward names at the rate you would expect to see to staff an administration. and this is a perfect example of why that is concerning to good government experts because when you have a crisis like this, you want a team in place that understands how to build a coherent strategy toward it. >> all right. thank you for that. bright and early this morning. >> thank you. >> thanks. the state department believes several of its employees at the u.s. embassy in havana were targeted last fall by a covert sonic device that caused them to suffer hearing loss. two staffers experienced such serious health problems they had to return to the united states for treatment. according to a state department official, the workers were not in the same place at the same time. they also reported a variety of concussion-like symptoms. >> the fbi is looking into the

opposition, why wouldn't the president take a shot at the senate majority leader? i know he's in his party. i know that he's very important. but why should mcconnell be any different than anybody else? the president only treats opponents one way. so we'll get into what the thinking is here. >> chris, you have your work cut out for you. >> yes. >> thanks. every damn day. >> we'll see you later. all right. as google deals with a p.r. crisis over a memo criticizing diversity, it faces sexism charges from the u.s. government. that's on cnn "money stream" next. alzheimer's disease the fi is out there.survive and the alzheimer's association is going to make it happen by funding scientific breakthroughs, advancing public policy, and providing local support to those living with the disease and their caregivers. but we won't get there without you. visit alz.org to join the fight.

going toe to toe with stephen colbert. short tenured white house communications director anthony scaramucci is set to appear monday on "the late show." he's been the frequent butt of colbert's jokes. meantime, colbert and his late-night competition finding comedy in the north korea standoff for some much-needed late-night laughs. >> tensions are building between president trump and north korean president and disappointed volleyball kim jong-un. leave guam out of this -- they're a u.s. territory. that means they don't participate in the elections, okay. they didn't vote for trump, just like most of americans. [ laughter ] >> i think americans should sleep well at night. >> why? what's happening during the day? what aren't you telling us? okay. okay. grandpa wants us to sleep well at night which is why he's come out with a new book, "rex tillerson's sleepy time tales." [ applause ]
then one day, the badger got into a fight with a pudgy wolf who was somehow even crazier, and both of them had nuclear weapons and distant, unpleasable fathers. [ laughter ] and -- uh. ♪ yikes. >> problem with north korea and the nukes is not an easy one to fix. so far, trump's strategy of playing multiple rounds of golf and watching "fox and friends" is not working either. [ laughter ] the bottom line is we cannot afford to have an unstable, unpredictable, ego maniac dictator in charge of an arsenal of nuclear weapons. and kim jong-un has to be stopped, too. >> i saw that one coming from quite a dance. >> you certainly did -- a distance. >> you certainly did. did 55 minutes past the hour. a dramatic rescue by the coast guard plucking a navy pilot out of the water off the florida kea keys after his fighter jet crashed into the ocean. the pilot ejected from the aircraft about 20 niles from the key west -- 20 miles from the key west naval air station.
a coast guard crew observed an emergency smoke signal. they responded quickly to the scene. the incident is under investigation. the pilot who has not been identified suffered no serious injuries. he was conducting training operations when his plane went down. >> man, what a lucky guy. anyone with dreams of living like donald trump and has $725 can make those dreams come true. the president's childhood home now available on airbnb. the president lived in the tudor-style home until age 4. it was built by his father, fred trump, and is located in the wealthy jamaica estates area of queens in new york city. it's listed as a spacious -- spacious enough for 20 guests. but that could be a problem. a local law dictates no more than three unrelated people can stay in a rental house. >> when did he move out -- when he was 4? >> 4. it's been a while. >> his babyhood, childhood home. we'll check cnn "money stream" this morning. rising tension with north korea finally breaking the calm on wall street. global stocks are down after u.s. stocks closed lower. a response to the president's
warning to north korea and north korea's threat to guam. after months of stocks coasting to records, investors are showing some signs of caution. for example, gold, a typical safe haven, rising more than 1% to a two-month high. and wall street's fear gauge is up 21% this week. the vix index had previously been a historically low level. the u.s. dollar, once a safe bet in the global economy, down 8% this year. remember that incident where united airlines forcibly dragged a passenger off a flight? the fallout from all of that is causing big changes industrywide. passengers being bumped from flights was at a record low last quarter. the 12 largest airlines bumped only 44 out of every million passengers. that's the lowest rate in 23 years of data. airlines typically oversell seats to make up for passengers who don't show up for flights. however, since the united airlines debacle, they've changed policies to make sure
people give up seats voluntarily. after google's crisis and the memo suggesting women are not biologically fit for tech roles, it faces charges for the systemic problem of underpaying women. the government suing google to access to pay data for women. google denies the allegation. this lawsuit combined with the backlash against the memo highlights the intense scrutiny google is under over diversity. a walmart apologizing for marketing an unusual back-to-school item -- guns. the retailer condemning the display inside one of its stores. the display popped up and spread like wildfire on twitter. a sign says, "own the school year like a hero." directly above a case filled with guns. apparently marketing firearms for the new school year. social media, of course, glommed on to this immediately. the company says it's still working to identify which store put up the display and to make sure that sign will be removed.
>> not quite the message you want to send. >> own the school year like a hero. thanks for joining us. i'm christine romans. >> i'm miguel marquez. north korea defies president trump with a new direct threat. the president promised fire and fury if they did. what's his next move? "new day" live from beijing, seoul, and the pentagon starts right now.. north korea responding to president trump's rhetoric with another specific threat against guam. >> the north korean statements say the u.s. president led out a load of nonsense about fire and fury. >> we need to be firm and steady, not popping off the way the president did. >> i think americans should sleep well at night. >> the united states is on the same page. >> serious threat was taken as a bluff and can be catastrophic. >> cnn has learned of an unannounced raid on paul
manafort's apartmentment. >> somebody had to go to a judge. they're not just here on a fishing expedition. >> a significant turn by director mueller and this investigation. stay tuned. this is "new day" with chris cuomo and al sirn camerota. >> welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. it's thursday, august 10th, 6:00 here in new york. here is our starting line. north korea arguably crossing president trump's red line with a new threat outlining a specific plan to fire several ballistic missiles into the water near guam, a u.s. territory. the high stakes war of words intensifying. the general in charge of north korea yeah's missile programming slamming president trump as bereft of reason and dismissing his fire and fury warning as nonsense. >> meanwhile, the trump administration is sending
