tv Anderson Cooper 360 CNN September 14, 2017 5:00pm-6:00pm PDT
that two substations just came back online, provide power to 4,000 to 5,000 people. workers plan on working through the night. erin? >> thanks so much. thanks for joining us, anderson starts right now. good evening, begin with breaking news, another missile launch by north korea, intermediate ballistic missile that landed in pacific ocean. passed over northern japan. president trump has been briefed. joining us from seoul, south korea, what is the latest? >> south korean military announced the launch around 7:00 a.m. local time east over the japanese island of hokkaido. nobody hurt, no damage reported. second time in less than three
weeks it appears that north korea has fired a missile over japanese territory. less than two weeks after north korea conducted what is believed to be sixth nuclear test and just days after new united nations sanctions were imposed in response to the tests and continuing to develop the technology. south koreans responded in way we haven't seen thus far. fired their own ballistic missile they claimed nearly simultaneously in response to the launch. this is not the first time that south koreans have conducted live fire missile and military tests. just this week in response to the escalating tension fired air-to-surface missile, tested that this week. can be fired from jet deep into north korean territory across the demilitarized zone.
ratcheting up of tensions here and south korean president spoke to paula hancocks and said despite ongoing tension and introduceular test, he doesn't believe that south korea should accept any arsenal for develop nuclear weapons here. said would probably lead to nuclear arms race and not be good for the peninsula. you have the bizarre situation that north korea continues to threaten the u.s., japan and south korea, threatening to drown u.s. allies in a sea of nuclear fire but south korean president continuing to talk about hopes for peace with the neighbor to the north. >> expecting remarks from president trump at any time and will bring you those. ooirch thanks very much.
meantime, president trump surprised reporters when he expressed belief there is moral equivalence between neonazis and white supremacists and those who showed up to protest them. asked about meeting with tim scott in the wakes of the comments. scott, african-american, said that president compromised his moral authority. today the president said they had a great meeting but then returned to the controversial comments he made after charlottesville, saying bad people on both sides of the violence. made no mention today, but focused on radical left-wing counterprotesters who call themselves antifa. >> in the advent of antifa, bad dudes on the other side also. essentially what i said. because of what's happened since then with antifa, since
charlottesville, lot of people have written, gee, trump might have a point. i said, bad people on the other side also, which is true. >> well just unpack the comments. once again appears to draw a equivalence between racist who came armed and ready for action and antifa. only reason of the counterprotesters were because of the nazis and white supremacists that descended on the city. interesting that he was rewriting what he said in the wake of charmtsville. not just violence and bad people on both sides but previously said fine people, very fine people on both sides and particularly referenced a rally friday night in charlottesville before all the violence. play what the president said last month. >> jews will not replace us.
jews will not replace us. jews will not replace us. >> that's the rally friday night, day before the violence. president was talking about that march by hundreds of neonazis and white supremacists with torches chanting jews will not replace us and blood and soil, a nazi slogan. what the president said about the rally. >> excuse me. excuse me. you have very bad people in that group but you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. you had people in that group -- excuse me, i saw the same pictures as you did. you had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of to them a very, very important statue and renaming of a park from robert e. lee to another name. there were people in that rally,
i looked night before, there were people protesting very quietly the taking down of the statue of robert e. lee. i'm sure in that group there were bad ones. following day it looked like they had rough, bad people. neonazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call them. but lot of people in that group were there to innocently and legally protest. i don't know if you know, they had a permit. the other group didn't have a permit. so i only tell you this, there are two sides to a story. i thought what took place was a horrible moment for our country. horrible moment. but there are two sides. >> that's what he said last month. spoke to the reporter at that friday night torch rally, asked if good people there. said quote, no, everyone there knew what they were doing. perhaps it's sign of progress
that presidents no longer saying there were fine people among the nazis and klansmen or perhaps trying to rewrite his remarks. >> that's who he is, who he's been. i didn't go in there to change who he was. i wanted to inform and educate a different perspective. i think we accomplished that. to think immediately thereafter would have epiphany is unrealistic. that's who he is, who he was on the day heather heyer was killed and said this. >> closely following the events in charlottesville, virginia, condemn this egreggious display of bigotry and violence on many sides. it's been going on for a long time in our country. not donald trump, not barack obama. it's been going on for a long,
long time. >> on many sides. it's who he is and who he's been and two days later finally denounced nazis and kkk by name. and it's who he is and has been. gloria borger, van jones and reverend scott. why bring this up? question to the president about the meeting with ben scott, president immediately after saying he had a great meeting go to revisionist take on his comments. >> doesn't make a lot of sense. i know senator scott very well. he actually went there with agenda about jobs and putting people to work. trump base and democratic base needs jobs. he went there on a peace building mission and for some reason the president then just goes right back to talking about
this horrible moment. he doesn't say thanything about the young woman murdered. only one side using isis terror tactics, mowing people down and murdering them in broad daylight, only one side embracing neonazism. for some reason doesn't want to talk about that, just counterprotesters. felt bad for senator scott. going there to do something good and turned into another circus. >> saying about the people writing that people are saying trump has a point. it's usual for the president, people are saying phraseology. >> this president can't admit what he said was wrong, that he made a mistake. can't get out of his own way on this and lots of other things, anderson, so in answer to a
question about senator scott, he felt the need to go back over his language and his statements because he had to prove to people that in fact, he wasn't wrong in the first place. and you know, when senator scott came out of his meeting with the president, he made it very clear, he said he, meaning the president, certainly tried to explain what he was trying to convey. and that's what he did again today. because he can't just come out and say i misspoke, was wrong, didn't get the whole picture. there is no comparison between white supremacists and anybody else. so i just think it's who he is. as you were saying. >> reverend scott as supporter of the president, do you think he's right to continue to insist both sides ought to be blamed for the violence in charlottesville? >> for the violence, yes. he's right. if you went for the account of
espousing white supremacist you're dead wrong. but if you went with intent to violently oppose this march, you're wrong as well. one might be worse wrong. but going there to bust crackers in the head you're wrong as well. >> nobody said that. >> but wrong was in respect to violence. not in respect to the purpose of the -- there was not two wrongs in respect to the purpose of the assembly but in respect to violence there were two wrongs. violence on both sides. >> i've gotten a chance to talk to some of the people there, including people who are quite well-known people. they said that had it not been for some of the antifascist counterprotesters more people might have been killed. in other words i think that antifa has a bad pr problem. should just call themselves antifascist, everybody in the
world is antifascist. call themselves antifa and nobody knows what it means chblt went to protect people from violence. some got out of hand. i don't think given enough credit to the people saying more lives would have been lost if not protective shield from the counterprotesters. >> with all due respect -- >> reverend scott, let me ask you, said there were fine people in the rally with hundreds of young men saying jews will not replace us and chanting blood and soil, a nazi chant from the 1930s, president said fine people peacefully there, do you buy that? >> anderson don't take me back to charlottesville, talking about bad people on both sides. we have addressed and readdressed that. >> you're not listening to my question. today the president mentioned
that previous -- >> didn't mention. >> pretending he never said that. >> i can't say that. he didn't bring it up. >> did acknowledge it. do you believe there were fine people amongst the neonazis chanting jews will not replace us? >> no i don't. but i also believe there were bad people on both sides. >> i hear you. >> and i believe antifa has bad people. needs to be named black shirts or black mass. trying to act like peace lovers there to stop violence. antifa was the architect of the violence and trying to suppress free speech in the country by anyone right leaning. you know that and trying to pretend it doesn't exist. >> nobody is trying to condone the violence of the antifa, let's set that aside.
>> i'm not going to -- >> can i finish please? >> let her finish her thought. nobody can hear anybody when all are talking. >> question is whether there's equivalency between the kkk, white supremacists and all the rest who for decades and decades and decades have been torturing people, have been killing people, nazis for example, and antifa, setting aside -- okay, don't condone the violence but this kind of false equivalency is creating such a stir. >> i don't think it's false. >> if the president could just come out and say, i didn't mean to say that these were somehow equal doses of evil, that would go a long way. >> but as far as the violence is
concerned, there are equal doses. reason you can equate antifa -- you said can't because klu klux klan has a history. antifa is new group but violence is violence. can't say the violence from the kkk is worse simply because they're white supremacists. >> what about the nazis? >> same difference. bullet from nazi does more damage than a bullet from antifa. can't say that. >> i think what you're -- almost like you're taking on a straw person argument. >> i'm not. >> here's the deal, there wasn't -- you said somebody went there to bust a cracker's head. didn't see anybody saying that kind of thing. said didn't want nazis there with guns and torches attacking people. maybe you saw it differently. >> i saw it -- some people from antifa did show up armed. had weapons with them. don't go with weapons with peaceful intent.
>> hold on a second. reverend, i think it's important point because people are getting confused and you may have better insight than i do. i saw people who were nazis, armed with torches going into a city. if nazis marched on your house into your neighborhood, and you came out with a side arm and said hey, get away from here, you're a nazi, got weapons and torches, back up, i don't think anybody would call you violent. i think people would say you're correct to protect yourself. you think that people don't have right to defend themselves against nazis? i don't know i don't understand what you're saying. >> if i heard nazis were marching across town and armed myself and went across town to prevent their march, i have evil intent. walking across my grass is one time. >> self-defense? >> if i come to you? and you don't come to me?
>> if nazis -- >> how many gun shots went off at meeting? how many people shot by white supremacist? >> one woman was murdered. >> how many people shot? how many guns went off. >> i'm confused. >> one person run over by car, that was horrible. >> but reverend -- >> if that's the case, anybody that drove there went with a weapon then. by your -- >> if a nazi is coming to my house to kill me as a kurd, as we all know, there is a right to self-defense. and i mean, i'm sure you agree with that. >> these hypotheticals you're saying are not -- that's not what happened. nazis have been marching -- >> everybody has a historical reference here. >> nazis have been marching in
america -- white supremacists, the klan, over 100 years, all through the obama administration. only thing that brought attention to it, it happened on president trump's watch. >> van, final thought. then got to go. >> yes nazis marching and liberal groups like aclu protecting their right to march. what has changed is showing up fully armed with torches and level of threat they were putting forth. would love to have this conversation further. i think something has changed with regard to the right supremacist right that's dangerous for everybody and need a better conversation about it, president is not leading that. need a better job. new reporting about how the president upbraided and humiliated jeff sessions after special counsel was put on the russian investigation. and latest on florida's long

new reporting from "new york times" shows how bad it got in private. blaming him for russian investigation and telling him he should resign. said would be willing after recused from the russian investigation and series of heated exchanges but story paints picture how heated they were. calling sessions an idiot, saying picking him for attorney general one of the worst decisions he made. after hearing of the special counsel. maggie and -- have the byline, maggie joins us now. kind of unbelievable reading the piece. get to humiliation part but get to president saying attorney general should resign, last option before firing him. why is sessions still attorney general? >> as you say, important point, it's last option before firing him. as we know, president doesn't really like firing people. this was may meeting in the oval
office. interviewing or discussing potential candidates to replace james comey who the president had fired days earlier. in the middle of the meeting there was phone call from deputy attorney general rod rosenstein saying he named robert mueller as special counsel. meeting resumed and president unloaded his anger and frustration at jeff sessions in full view of others. called him idiot, one of his worst mistakes, he should resign. those are the cliffs notes here. sessions was deeply upset, said he would resign, left oval office and intercepted, mike pence played some role in trying to defuse the situation. still wrote a letter of resignation that president
declined to accept. said will be devastating if you fire him in middle of this or let him leave this way. calmed down and heated up again in middle of july. president training sights on jeff sessions and moved off it. got better. to your question as to why jeff sessions stayed, one he gave up a safe senate seat to serve in the administration. one of the earliest supporters of president trump in the campaign and has clear policy views, whether people agree with them or not, he has program he wants to impact on legal and illegal immigration and that's what he's been focused on. >> and making changes at department of justice that hasn't gotten a lot of reporting. interesting that president would say he's worst selection, because he's one of the people executing the president's agenda pretty quickly within the department of justice. >> exactly right. they share certain platforms and have for many months.
an important word i think i didn't mention before that president used about sessions in the tirade is disloyal. president said in times interview that sessions recusal he was upset about it. made it clear. there he was saying it to us, saying quote/unquote very unfair to the president to do that. business of loyal took it a tick further. while the president has said a lot of this publicly in his thinking and why he was upset and where he was on the probe. question of loyalty is something you will see investigators hone in on in the coming week. >> theme of loyalty, can't think how many times we heard it, demanding loyalty if jim comey. also reporting about the president yelling at retired general john kelly who told
people had never been spoken to like that in 35 years of service to this country. >> president, you and i have covered him for a while, has a very flash temper and said by people who work for him to be a split screen built into one person of somebody who can be charming and funny and engaging and at times warm to people and can also be jarring and demeaning and cutting and people who are closest to him and work for him longest in subordinate positions can end up feeling the brunt of that the most. >> the encounter in may, under the cloud of the russian investigation rgs flash forward to last week attorney general announcing end of daca and now the president seems to have undermined that toughened stance on immigration which you report as major reason that sessions
stayed on the job. >> that's one. that's a key one he worked on for months. told people he was very frustrated. colleague who contributed to the story on this, he was very frustrated by the tweets from the president, one done at request of house leader nancy pelosi, toxic to sessions. not clear where it's going on daca, program is ending. important not to confuse the president's tweets with what has happened to the policy and how hard it would be to restore it given that department of justice says it's unconstitutional. but what they're working on with d.r.e.a.m.er act is not what jeff sessions signed up for. >> we're going to cover that. thanks maggie, great journalism. after today, might be saying it's hard to figure out what president wants to accomplish with immigration. people scratching heads in
washington, that story and conversation next. mike and i are both veterans, both served in the navy. i do outrank my husband, not just being in the military, but at home. she thinks she's the boss. she only had me by one grade. we bought our first home together in 2010. his family had used another insurance product but i was like well i've had usaa for a while, why don't we call and check the rates? it was an instant savings and i should've changed a long time ago. there's no point in looking elsewhere really. we're the tenneys and we're usaa members for life. usaa. get your insurance quote today.
for the second time in the last week, president trump apparently has broken with members of his own party to try to make a deal with democrats, this time on daca. maggie talked about this, following development of the last 24 hours, confusing with contradictory statements from the president himself. jeff zeleny joins me to break it down. now the d.r.e.a.m.ers might get to stay, how did we get from point a to b? >> shift in strategy, not only the white house trying to do
business working with democrats but also immigration strategy. one piece of consistency from president trump, candidate trump, immigration, building the wall. he said specifically today he prefers to help the d.r.e.a.m.ers before the wall in that order. sparked outrage from republicans, from conservatives. in florida today he sought to explain it like that. >> we're not looking at citizenship or amnesty, we're looking at allowing people to stay here. working with everybody, republican, working with democrat. just spoke with paul ryan. he's on board. everybody's on board. >> he said everybody is on board. that's not quite true. speaker paul ryan about an hour after the president made those comments said, look, this is not agreement, just beginning of a discussion. anderson, what we're seeing is another example of the president trying to avoid the divisions inside this republican party by
getting democrats to push republicans along with him. there is a lot of support for the d.r.e.a.m.er legislation to hold on to the 800,000 young undocumented immigrants here, but president is still facing considerable blow back from his base. >> so interesting, he said -- i can't remember even, a week ago, congress has six months to come up with something or he'll revisit it. that seems to be undercut by going ahead and meeting and hammering out something about nancy pelosi and senator schumer. >> it's part of the deal though. he believes and white house believes and new chief of staff john kelly believed that left to its own devices republicans in congress may do nothing on this. divisions so raw on the republican side of this immigration debate so need the democrats in line with them. president explained in ways we've not yet heard flying back
in air force one, new governing strategy to deal with republicans. take a listen. >> we have to get things fast. if we can't get them fast we have to go a different route. we have to get things passed. if the republicans don't stick together, i have to do more and more. republican party agrees with me, people out there deferently agree with me. if they're unable to stick together, i'll have to get a little help from the democrats. >> we're in new terrain, trying to get help from the democrats. but reality is yes they support the d.r.e.a.m.ers, still issue, massive border security he talked about, democrats will not include a wall in that. what does that contain? that's the debate coming up. >> i don't think anybody should be too surprised by this. as candidate, donald trump said getting people together in room, working with democrats and republicans. not that ideological or not to the extent he's not willing
to -- >> he's been democrat, independent, now a republican. all the things there. but on immigration, biggest surprise he's willing to make a deal here. >> thanks very much. joining me, univision anchor, jorge ramos. fact that president trump seems to be moving towards a deal with democrats on daca, what is your reaction? >> d.r.e.a.m.ers are incredible, incredible kids. for years convinced president barack obama, he was not emperor or king, but convinced him he had ability to give them daca, changed mind. doing the same thing with donald trump. find it incredible. talking about d.r.e.a.m.ers, talking not about gang members from ms-13 or criminals, we're talking about doctors and attorneys and professors, people
who are incredibly smart. i want to work with them. d.r.e.a.m.ers are my heroes, this is really incredible. they changed president obama's mind and now it seems they're changing president trump's mind. >> he tweeted out this morning, does anybody really want to throw out good educated accomplished young people with jobs, some serving in the military? then tweeted no fault of their own, sounds like a democrat saying that. >> sounds like a d.r.e.a.m.er right? that's a tweet that could have been written by any d.r.e.a.m.er. d.r.e.a.m.ers came to the country about six years old. many people are calling that amnesty. i don't think it's amnesty. it's forgiveness. that's what we do. >> obviously the president is far from having a deal. has to come from congress and
skepticism. steve king tweeted trump base is blown up, destroyed, disillusioned beyond repair, no promise is credible. do you think if the president moves forward can continue to have unwavering support of the base he's had until now? >> except for this, donald trump has been most anti-immigrant president in decades. might lose part of his base but when he criticized mexican immigrants for being criminals and rapists and wants to ban muslims from entering the country and changing his mind, time after time very anti-immigrant. this is only news i've heard from donald trump in months which seems to be a little sympathetic to immigrants in this country. might lose a little bit of his base but at end i think it's right move and right thing to do. >> about the wall, where do you
think the president is on this? said this morning that we're doing quote new renovation of old and existing fences and walls, which is obviously not building a new wall, what he ran on, bedrock of his campaign. he's talked about the wall will happen but not right now, down the road. and then we'll figure out funding for it later on. i mean, if he does not follow through, obviously you think the idea of a wall is ludicrous, if he doesn't follow through though, wasn't that central tenet of his campaign? >> it was and quite a different speech right now we're hearing. i think president trump understands very clearly, mexican government has been very clear not publicly but in private that mexican government will not pay for that. i think he gets it, if he wants to spend $50 billion on
something, not on something as useless as wall. nobody wants illegal immigration, i agree. can share legal immigration accord or agreement but doesn't make sense to spend that much money on the wall. >> what so many republicans have said, whatever decision is made on daca, the d.r.e.a.m.ers, wall would be part of the negotiation. seems like president has agreed to taking that and pushing it down the road which i think is why so many republicans are so stunned. >> exactly. because i don't think -- one of the conditions that d.r.e.a.m.ers have been expressing constantly, they don't want permanent protection in exchange for the wall. wall doesn't help. there's no invasion of mexicans coming in the united states right now. undocumented population has remained stable about 11 million, not changed in a decade. more mexicans living in the united states than come into the
country. there is no invasion. if you want a wall, why do you need it? politically it's complicated for president trump but supporting d.r.e.a.m.ers, he's doing right thing, supporting most vulnerable. if he wants to show his big heart, this is the moment to do it absolutely. >> jorge ramos, thanks very much. multiple investigations launched in nursing home where eight residents died in hurricane irma. tropical storm jose has changed course again, regaining strength and could hit the united states after all. latest forecast coming up.
with the pole, and i had to make a claim and all that? is that whole thing still draggin' on? no, i took some pics with the app and filed a claim, but, you know how they send you money to cover repairs and - -they took forever to pay you, right? no, i got paid right away, but, at the very end of it all, my agent- -wouldn't even call you back, right? no, she called to see if i was happy, but, if i wasn't happy with my claim experience, for any reason... ...they'd give me my money back, no questions asked. can you believe that? no. the claim satisfaction guarantee, only from allstate. switching to allstate is worth it.
welcome back. across florida with temperatures continuing to hover around 90 degrees, crews racing to restore power after hurricane irma, and getting new data about those in the -- 2.1 million without power, down from 2.5 million. and getting it on can be a matter of life and death. multiple investigations, death of nursing home residents. confirmed there was power failure but many questions. why did no one raise alarm until too late? hospital 50 feet away. how could it happen with hospital so close. joining us with the latest. what are the new developments
about what was reported and when at this nursing home? do we have a time line when the power went out and when it was reported? >> reporter: well, different entities are saying different things. i can tell you just in last ten minutes crime scene investigation van pulled up to building and cruisers and police entered. warrant to search the premises had been issued. hadn't been served yet. may be served now. facility is saying they were in contact with florida power and right to try to get the broken transformer back up and running so air conditioner to get to work. why one would call electric company with 911 issue is giant question still hanging out there. state agency that manages and works with these facilities says that they had multiple opportunities before the storm,
during and after the storm to raise their hand and say they had an issue and nothing was ever said to them about the power being out. certainly not that the air conditioners were a problem. they did report the power was out to an extent but had not affected air conditioners until after the evacuations had begun. hollywood police are now investigating, serving search warrants and talking to the staff here to get to bottom of it. all that while people with loved ones in the facility are starting to speak out. >> we throw our elderly away, they're a cash crop. it's not necessary. that's my mother, somebody's mother, sister, father. it's not -- they're not dollar signs. >> reporter: the state of florida has had several other homes evacuated because they also had no electricity. so far no death there's but eight deaths here are being
investigated as part of this incident. another 39 individuals have been hospitalized and death toll could go up. >> miguel, new information with customers without power, 2.2 million, what is the latest when that's going to be restored? >> reporter: seems to be moving in right direction. florida power and light restored the substations, backbone of the system. two days ago, 6.6 million without, now 2.2 million. east coast by sunday, west coast by saturday. >> out in the atlanta. tropical storm jose, are we in its path? what are the models showing? >> thought would be well into the open waters of the atlantic
by now. jose was on the heels of irma. after irma slammed into the lesser antilles, jose was category four. no direct hit. now it has steering. spaghetti plots. coast of the carolinas could have dangerous rip currents but some models bring it close to the east. european model in blue, now in red the u.s. model. gfs. they're in agreement. it's a hurricane, makes its way up dangerously close. u.s. model a little closer to the coast, then they pull away. national hurricane center's forecast keeps it a category one. it was hurricane this morning. think category one by tomorrow afternoon and keeps the strength
northward. biggest issue now, wave heights. probably large swells and maybe beaches closed this weekend. as it gets closer to the northeast could have coastal erosion, jersey coast maybe flooding. northeast wind into the sound so water could make it to new york. i really think will have problem with air travel. more of a nuisance. >> couple of other tropical systems forming further out to be watched in coming days? >> couple of tropical waves that will develop. see where jose is. national hurricane center, 70% chance to develop. next names lee and maria. lee's track is dangerous next five days, towards islands once again. good news, we have passed the peak of hurricane season. the bad news, we have just passed the peak of hurricane season. >> thank you, tom. when we come back, you may
