tv Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs CNN August 24, 2017 2:00am-2:59am PDT
in the same room? still about ten days left in the congressional recess. time to talk. good morning, welcome to "early start," i'm dave briggs. >> i'm christine romans. it is thursday, august 24th, 5:00 a.m. in the east, noon in moscow and jerusalem. president trump effecting a new and drastic shift in tone after a rally tuesday that many say incited conflict. the president issued a call for national unity less than 24 hours later at the american legion bridge convention in reno -- american legion convention in reno. >> it is time to heal the wounds that divide us and to seek a new unity based on the common values that unite us. we are one people with one home and one great flag. we are not defined by the color of our skin, the figure on our paycheck, or the party of our politics. we are defined by our shared humanity.
>> the president sticking closely to the script there on the teleprompter, choosing not to attack republican foes in nevada. after slamming gop senators, john mccain and jeff flake, during his arizona rally and tweet being flake during the following morning. the president back at the white house with no public events scheduled. joining us to discuss, cnn contributor cena zito, reporter for the washingtesshington -- t "washington examiner." >> good morning! >> good to see you from pittsburgh. bright and early. >> good morning, go priorities! -- go, pirates! >> you're a happy girl. let's talk about what the "washington post" calls trump's whiplash, three presidential personas in three days. it is all still the same president. yesterday in reno, we saw him sticking to the script, sticking to the teleprompter, talking about unity. you know, what do you make of these three different appearances by this president? what it says about what kind of leader he is? >> well, what i tried to do is
look at it through the lens of people that support him because ultimately i think that's the thing that -- that we as journalists struggle sometimes to understand. so i watched his speech in arizona with trump supporters and people also that didn't vote for either candidate last year. and -- and you know, for them, that moment was, you know, like fun and exciting. that was -- that was campaign trump. the speech the night before when he talked about afghanistan, they were also very satisfied and -- and -- you know, appreciative of the tone that he took when he did the speech about what goes forward in afghanistan. same with -- in nevada. from your point of view, they have the expectation, yes, when he's governing, he's going to be more serious. when he's campaigning, he's going to be vintage.
there was nothing that he did in arizona that most journalists didn't see if they weren't on the campaign bus last year. that was so vintage trump. you go after the media, you defend whatever you're in trouble with for that week. you talk about -- you get this those issue that's are important to the base, and you play around with the crowd. it's a formula -- each time they're different, but they're all the same sort of thing. >> yeah, but -- what's different is the president's fire and fury is focused on republicans. >> yeah. >> we could talk about john mccain and jeff flake, who he went after the rally and tweet good flake the next morning -- and tweeted about flake the next morning. mitch mcconnell said they should -- he said he should shut down the government if he doesn't get wall funding. paul ryan said no, no interest in doing that. how does that strategy to -- strategy work with the base?
it doesn't work with the agenda. >> we have to remember, he has an interesting coalition that put him into office. they're not all republicans. he pretty much didn't run as a republican. if you look back at his campaign speeches, he had no problem going after republicans, establishment republicans, during the campaign process. you know, he -- voters don't have a great love for the establishment republicans or democrats in washington. so they don't mind that he mixes up. now, some -- not some, probably the true blue conservatives are like, geez, i wish he wouldn't do that. i think they have bought into there personality long before he ran for president. they knew they -- the guy that they were putting into office. while it is disruptive to
establishment washington and become sort of difficult as a reporter to unpack all of this, for the people who voted for him, they're okay with this for the most part. >> i think you're right. and i think that in many cases they don't see a bully, where someone else might watch some of the behavior and see a bully. they see someone who's sticking up for them. and that's not bullying behavior. that's someone sticking up for them, for that base, the people who voted for him. and when he attacks the media as he did in arizona, i want to listen to this little bit, when he attacks the media, in a way he's attacking the media and saying i'm sticking up for you by attacking them. listen -- >> the media can attack me, but where i draw the line is when they attack you which is what they do. when they attack the decency of our supporters. >> no surprise that got a lot of very vigorous response from that
29,000-strong crowd. >> absolutely. and on twitter -- on that night, twiced, i said, that's the -- i tweeted, i said, that's the line of the night. that is all they heard. they have believed for so long, whether they're independent, republican, democrat, agnostic, that nobody has been sticking up for them. that is not only -- not only aspirational but something they have been longing to hear. i thought that was the key line of the evening. that -- that right there. that defines that relationship between his voters and him. >> there's one sound bite that is tough to reconcile why it resonates with the crowd. it is when when he talked about elites at the phoenix rally. listen -- >> i always hear about the elead, the elite -- the elite, the elite. i went to better schools than they did.
i was a better student than they were. i live in a bigger, more beautiful apartment -- and i live in the white house, too, which is really great. [ applause ] i think we're the elites. they're not the elites. >> selena, can you explain the notion of we? the people who fueled trump's rise, put him into the oval office, many can't afford the morning. many did not go to college -- afford the mortgage. many did not go to college. why does that message work? >> it's funny, right? i think -- all my career i've been waiting for this great populist election to see how it would play out -- in our country. we've never supported a populist candidate. i never in a million years imagined that the populist would be someone whose name is in gold over their building, a billionaire who flies in a plane. he has a way of connecting with
them that is something that's an interesting fabric in that he is one of them even though he's -- that as operational thing that i think we tend to miss, right? >> yeah. >> we want to be part of something bigger, we admire -- americans admire people who make it, who are successful, who are able to achieve the american dre dream. he started out with a lot more than 90% of us, he still was able to take what he had and made it something bigger. people love that. >> fascinating analysis. that's why we love having you here. we'll check back with you in about 20 minutes. thanks. >> we love that she's an early bird, gets up for us. thanks a lot. a lot to do in washington. the debt ceiling deadline is almost here.
new analysis out today will show exactly when the government runs out of money and what payments could be missed as a result. to avoid that, lawmakers must raise or suspend the country's debt limit, ensuring the u.s. ask pay its bills in full and on time, avoiding basically shutting the government down. treasury secretary mnuchin has used special accounting tricks to stay under the limit since march. he says those measures will tap out september 29th. others estimate until mid-october. either way, will washington raise the ceiling in time? the president is complicating the issue. he threatened a shutdown if the u.s. doesn't fund his border wall. >> we have to close down our government, we're building that wall. >> threatening a shutdown contradicts what majority leader mitch mcconnell said earlier, zero chance of the congress not raising the debt limit. consequence if they don't. u.s. credit could be downgraded, federal contractors wouldn't get
paid, federal markets could tank. when we've done this before, you see -- you know, these moments when all of these federal money for science and the like freezes up. you know, they've got to pass a government spending bill. there's two -- these are two separate but very related things. government shutdown, raising the debt ceiling. >> and you wonder with the president, those threats, is there strategy behind them with the republican-controlled senate, house, and republican president, the blame would all go to the republican party. how is there part of a strategy to shut down the government -- >> might be the way he negotiates -- takes an extreme position and -- >> he's written an entire book on just that. the white house is expected to send guidance to the pentagon in coming guys on president trump's transgender military service ban. that's according to the "wall street journal," citing u.s. officials familiar with the matter. the memo reportedly directs the military to stop admitting transgender people. for current transgender troops,
the pentagon is supposed to consider a service member's ability to deploy when deciding whether to expel them. the memo says the pentagon should stop paying for troops' transgender-related medical procedures. >> it is unclear whether the memo has been finalized. officials tell the "wall street journal" the guidance would give defense secretary james mattis six months to put the new rules into effect. the president surprised the pentagon last month, firing off a string of tweets reinstating the transgender ban without a plan in place for implementation. cnn has reached out to the defense department and the white house for comment on this. 11 minutes past the hour. two cnn exclusives on the russia investigation. an e-mail from a trump campaign aide suggests efforts to meet with vladimir putin and the former russian ambassador to the u.s. faces tough questions from cnn back home. >> when you met donald trump, the president, were you surprised when he disclosed secret information to you about syria? no splashing! wait so you got rid of verizon, just like that?

new information suggests a previously unreported attempt to arrange a meeting between trump campaign officials and russian leader vladimir putin stems from an e-mail from campaign aide rick dearborn, now the president's deputy chief of staff. it dates back to the summer of 2016 or around the time of that now-infamous meeting between top trump campaign aides and russians with kremlin ties. we get more this morning from cnn reporting from washington. >> reporter: good morning. congressal investigators have unearth -- congressional investigators have unearthed a new e-mail from a top trump aide that references an effort not reported before to arrange this meeting between trump officials and the russian president, vladimir putin. the aide is rick dearborn. we are told that sheehe sent a f e-mail relating information about a official seeking to
connect officials to putin. dearborn, now the president's chief of staff, that person who was identified in dearborn's e-mail was really only identified as being from "w.v.," a clear reference to the state of west virginia. it's unclear who that person is, what exactly they want, whether or not dearborn acted on the request. dearborn would not respond to requests for comment. one source said w.v. had political connections in west virginia. the same source said dearborn in the e-mail appeared skeptical of the meeting. this appears to intelligence experts to fit a pattern of trying to find entry points into the trump campaign. that's a big question going forward. we'll have more on how the dearborn e-mail fits the pattern. expected to be called to capitol hill to testify. >> thank you. dearborn's name has not been mentioned previously as part of the russia investigation. he served as chief of staff for then-senator jeff sessions. and investigators have questions about his potential involvement
in two meetings that took place between sessions and sergei kislyak. the former russian ambassador to the united states. cnn spoke exclusively to kislyak on wednesday. boy, was it interesting. fred pleitgen joins us live with the latest. good morning to you. >> reporter: yeah, you're absolutely right. and cnn managed to track down sergei kislyak in a town that's about a 12-hour drive outside of moscow. he's running for a seat in russia's version of their senate. he seemed a bit unsettled when cnn confronted him. he vehemently denied being what u.s. officials say is a spy master in the united states. and he also denied that there were any efforts at trying to get back-channel meetings between the trump campaign and the trump administration and russia going. here's what he had to say. >> can you discuss opening secret channels -- did you discuss opening secret channels with the kremlin with jared
kushner, for instance? >> i've said many times we do not discuss our discussions with american counterparts with respect to our partners. >> reporter: fair enough. when you met donald trump, the president, were you surprised when he disclosed secret information to you about syria? >> i'm not sure that i heard anything that would be secret. but it was a good meeting. and we were discussing things that were important to your country and to mine. >> reporter: as our matthew chance there tracked kislyak down in the town. a testy interview but with interesting perspective also from sergei kislyak, such an important figure now in the russia investigation. >> a fascinating interview. fred pleitgen live for us in moscow. thank you. what a night, folks, for los angeles dodgers' pitcher rich hill. nine innings, no hits. normally that's history. not last night. andy scholes with the hollywood ending that was not in this morning's "bleacher report."

or being disrespectful. he's bringing attention to a very important issue. they have a problem with that. >> organizers from united we stand requested a meeting with the nfl by september 7th to discuss methods to support and protect players who are socially active. if they don't get a meeting, they plan on boycotting the league and its sponsors. after a promotional tour that was considered by many to be offensive and racist, mcgregor and mayweather were subdued before the fight. mayweather remains a huge favorite for saturday. don riddell spoke with both fighters yesterday and asked mcgregor about the fact that most say he has no chance. >> you know, i'm a multiple time, multiple fighting champion. i come from a ruthless business. not only do i come from it, i own it. they can say what they want and speak what they want. but it is a disrespect. you know, boxing will look
amazing with its new king. >> i've been here before with many different fighters, different styles. there's been plenty of guys who talked a lot of trash. when all is said and done, came out victorious. >> it was a rough night for the dodgers' rich hill. he had a perfect game through eight innings. he had not allowed even one baseruner. an error by logan forsythe in the ninth lost the game. there was still a chance for the no-hitter. he pitched into the 10th inning gf going for it. josh harrison crushed this for the game-winning home run. the dodgers lose 1-0. hill is the first pitcher in major league baseball history to lose a no-hit or a walk-off home run in extra innings. i think all of his dodgers teammates owe him a few steak dinners or something. give him one run. come on. he went nine innings, no-hit ball. perfect -- one of the best offenses in baseball. >> wasn't rich hill pulled in the middle of a no-hitter a year
ago or so, too? isn't that the same guy? >> yeah. he was. you're right. he's going -- maybe he'll get it one day. >> rich hill, are you overdue, my friend. >> how do you remember that? sports brain. >> a lot of step up there. >> congrats to the pirates, though, nonetheless. >> thanks. nice to see you this morning. president trump dials down the rhetoric and pushes a unifying message. can he stay that way long enough to jump-start a stalled agenda? you don't let anything lkeep you sidelined. come on! that's why you drink ensure. with 9 grams of protein, and 26 vitamins and minerals... for the strength and energy, to get back to doing what you love. ensure, always be you. it's our back to school beeone cent evente. at office depot office max. 10 pack pens, one cent. composition notebooks,scissors,

humanity. >> the president sticking closely to the prepared script in his teleprompter. choosing not to attack republican foes in nevada after slamming two gop senators, john mccain and jeff flake, during his arizona rally. today the president is back at the white house with no public events scheduled. joining us to discuss this morning, contributor selena zito, columnist for "the new york post," and happy pittsburgh pirates fan this morning. good morning. quite a walk-off win it was. >> that was great! >> today stuff. two very different presidents, two very different speeches. let's go to the campaign, which we do often, to talk about the president once criticizing people running against him for their use of the teleprompter. listen -- >> these guys go around, make a speech in front of 21 people.
they read the same speech. they have teleprompters. i say we should outlaw teleprompters for anybody -- right? [ cheers ] for anybody, for anybody running for president. i said if you run for president, you shouldn't be allowed to use teleprompters. you shouldn't be allowed. [ cheers ] you don't know when the guy's smart. maybe when you run for president you shouldn't be allowed to use a teleprompter because you find out what you're getting. would i like to stand and read a speech for half an hour and just leave. you know how easy that would be? instead of this, i'm working my [ bleep ] off, okay. >> should we ignore teleprompter trump given all that? >> no because i think when you see him testimony -- when he's
giving the clips you ran, most were during campaigns. he was talking about campaign speeches. at least that's my impression of the clips. president obama was incredible at delivering these soaring speeches, right, and he elegantly and effectively use a teleprompter to be able to reach people in a broadway. trump does not do that in a campaign speech. he has found it to be an advantage to do it at events that are serious and important. like the speech about afghanistan and like like the speech in front of the american legion in nevada. he understands the tools he needs to use to be effective governing. i think we'll find a treasure trove of instances where he has
said one thing. now that he's president, a completely different story. like he said in the speech the other day about being behind the desk -- >> absolutely. and i often wonder as a journalist -- and you're a journalist, too, we work with words. and words and facts have mean something. that's what you do in journalism. the president changes his mind. the president sometimes tweets and says things without knowing all the facts. the president sometimes thinks he knows facts that are not facts. that's what makes it difficult to cover him. but for his supporters, it's very clear this is a show. he is producing a show that they are avid consumers of, right? the numbers in his demo are very, very good now, as other reporters have note -- noted, because he's producing what his base wants, right? >> yeah, absolutely. and like we said last year, most take him seriously but don't
take his every word literally. we as reporters have to follow every word that we use and that we're reporting on. we take him literally. and it causes us at times to not take him seriously. we look at tapes, he's saying blah, blah, blah about teleprompters and sandwiches three events with weekends on either -- events with bookends as a teleprompter. it's difficult as a reporter to cover someone who is flip-flops and is comfortable with it, and his supporters are completely comfortable with him doing it. >> okay, but his job is to gove gove govern to lead. when you take on jeff flake at a rally, criticize john mccain with brain cancer, when you criticize dean heller,
vulnerable in 2018 and publicly feud with mitch mcconnell, how do you govern? >> it makes it challenging and difficult. it's unforeseen as to how his style impacts what happens come september. he may have misread or misunderstood his base in understanding who the enemy is. he probably is better served to use that firepower on people like claire mccaskill in missouri, a vulnerable democrat running for re-election in the midterms. those are the types of people and the people that maybe he could get to vote on tracks reform or infrastructure spending. -- on tax reform or infrastructure spending. nudge him more than you are nudging republicans. i think we'll find out in september. >> it's so fascinating to me that one day there were whispers
that tax reform was moving forward. yesterday the president after the threat of shutting down the government for the border wall, people thought, oh, no. day by day we're wondering where we are on the legislative agenda and where the president is on this. i mean, i think also paul ryan, the house speaker, was careful ton criticize -- i think he was careful to not overtly criticize the president. he said -- >> he tried. >> he messed up post charlottesville. they need to get together to pass any agenda item. do you see him healing the wounds? >> yeah. tax reform is the be all, end all. he wants to get it done. that's always been his thing. mitch mcconnell here, not -- just because he's having a fight or the president is having a public fight with him does not mean that he's not going to get things done to serve his interests not only of himself
but of congress. he's run forever, for eight years, on being this leader that can get policy and legislation done that impacts the economy and moves the economy forward. >> yeah. >> it's been about the economy, it's been about our pocketbooks. mcconnell is not going to let this fight get in the way of that. all three men want to be successful. it's going to be interesting getting to the finish line. >> it sure is, my friend. great to have you this morning. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. the white house is expected to send guidance to the pentagon in coming days on president trump's transgender military ban, according to the "wall street journal" citing u.s. officials familiar with the matter. the memo reportedly directs the military to stop admitting transgender people, for current transgender troops the pentagon is supposed to consider a service member's ability to deploy when considering whether to deploy them.

and senior adviser jared kushner is in israel leading the u.s. effort to revive long-stalled middle east peace talks. kushner set to meet with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas on wednesday. he met with the president of egypt as a new sore spot in u.s./cairo relations emerged. let's bring in orren liebermann live in jerusalem. i understand the foreign minister canceled a meeting because of that snag. but the egyptian president didn't seem to mind much. good morning. >> reporter: those meetings did happen in the end, but there may have been awkward moments there because the u.s. just cut $100 million in aid from egypt. that u.s. egypt aid wasn't the point of the meetings. this was kushner and the white house delegation trying to establish a regional framework for a peace process. it's smart to try to get all the critical players involved here before meeting with the israelis and palestinians.
in kushner's meetings today with netanyahu and abbas, he'll face very different challenges. netanyahu is under criminal investigation, and to shore up his own base while under investigation, he has shifted sharply to the right, attacking previous israeli/palestinian accords and leaving little place for agreement. palestinian leaders are waiting for trump to commit to a two-state solution. waiting for the white house to agree to what the international consensus is and what the future of the region should be. a state of israel and state of palestinian. without a goal and timeline, the palestinians find it hard to fully commit. those are the challenges kushner faces as he arrives here. on top of that, it's incredibly complex to try to make progress here. but -- this is important to point out -- the fact that kushner's here again means it is still important to president trump. >> indeed it is. massive hurdles ahead. oren liebermann live, thank you.
