tv CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield CNN September 16, 2017 11:00am-11:30am PDT
ecra evacuated several homes. earlier today officials said they made a significant arrest of an 18-year-old man. 30 people were injured when a bomb detonated an a rush hour train, isis is claiming responsibility but authorities are down playing that claim saying there is no evidence of its involvement so far. cnn's reporter is following the story for us from london. what more do we know? >> reporter: well, justice was we were coming to air, the london metropolitan police force confirmed they are keeping the terror threat level at critical, the highest threat level. that means they believe another attack isn't just highly likely but another attack may be imminent. this all as their investigation, as their searches continue. they say they're very happy with the significant arrest of the
18-year-old. they say they have managed to get hold of -- common deer a number of people helping with the investigation. and they are not as yet ruling out he might have had broader support in the commissioning of this incident as they're calling it. that's what they're charging him with, the commissioning of an act of terror. the searches continue, the cordoning off of that neighborhood, continues. behind me you can see the streets surrounding the subway station returning to normal. there is a sense that this counter terror operation is really just getting going here in the uk. >> all right. thank you so much. president donald trump is preparing for his first speech not united stations general assembly and he'll address the world leaders on tuesday and is expected to focus on the need for better relations and
cooperation on fighting common enemies like north korea. national security adviser h.r. mcmasterer says nothing has been ruled oud when it comes to pyongyang. >> i think we ought to make clear what's different about this approach is that we're out of time. professor haley said before, we've been kicking the can down the road and we're out of road. so for those who have said and commenting about the lack of a military option, there is a military option. cnn's global affairs correspondent joining us now from washington, elise how big of a shadow will north korea cast over the general assembly and the president's expected remarks? >> well, i don't know if will cast a showed dough over the whole week. there are a lot of issues the trump administration and others are going to be talking about such as u.n. reform, hum tarrian assistance, but clearly north korea is one of the priority issues and one of the priority
focuses that president trump and the state department say will be a key issue this week. i think that you can see that president trump will be speaking a lot about north korea and trying to get all of the countries on board to implement those sanctions. i think what could also be hanging over this is what is china why going to be. this really holds the key to make sure it doesn't escalate by imply emting tougher measures. >> kim young says he wants equilibrium. is that reasonable? >> i don't think it's reasonable, fred. i mean clearly north korea has nuclear weapons. we don't know if they can actually use them, marry all the components to actually launch one. they have a huge conventional army and they could do a lot of damage but i think any military
moves by north korea would certainly be suicide for the regime. i think between u.s., south korea and japan and nuclear power is just completely overwhelming. there's no way for north korea to ever really have military par writty with the country like u.s. i think this is more rhetoric with yim young un. he could do a lot of damage. that's why it's almost a little bit of a deter rent even though general mcmasters says there's a military option, certainly nobody wants to use it. all right, let's talk more about this and the expectations of the speech. joined by the professor at princeton university. julian, good to see you. a challenge will be for this president, not -- in whatever he says, right? not to further escalate tensions, not to allow north
korea to use that language that the president articulates as provoking yet another test, or worse. >> exactly. the president is now coming to speak at an institution where he's had pretty tense relations. but it's important that he build support for both sanctions and for increasing pressure otherwise. le maybe through military means on north korea. what would be a big mistake is if the speech actually backfires and starts to become a speech about or discussion about president trump rather than north korea. he does have to handle this with the kind of del cassy that we ant always seen from the president. >> in the past, candidate trump hasn't shown a whole lot of respect to the u.n. in fact, calling it a club for people to have a good time. even challenging whether it is relevant. so how might his demeanor, what he has to say, how he enter acts
with u.n. nations, how night that change that dialogue or point of view? >> well, look, whether he likes it or not, he does, in the united states, needs the united nations right now to confront this really important challenge and dangerous challenge we face. his demeanor, his rhetoric, that's everything. he has issued some pretty harsh words about the u.n. as an institution and has promoted an america first agenda which is at odds with what the united nations is about. this is an important moment that he doesn't escalate those tensions at a minimum so he can get the support of at least many of the nations there sitting in the room watching him, who are being asked to participate in building the pressure on north korea. >> might be a lot of crossed arms from the other nations who take offense from the president saying america first when he's talking to domestic audience and sometimes global. but then trying to express
something different this week. >> i think there's probably a little bit of leeway. meaning many of them are expecting a little bit of that and understand that president trump can go off script at any second, so it's really a scale and scope question. the it's about how far he goes, in making those kinds of statements and going away from the kind of rhetoric that his speech writers will probably give to him. and we don't know. but crossed arms are okay, but angry arms would be a problem. and the president needs to understand this. we think his advisers do. the but this is not a time to make a speech simply condemning the u.n. it really has to be kept on the problem at hand. >> mm-hmm. the u.n. many bass door has already said she actually saw the speech or she read the speech. she used the word strong to describe it and says that it is one that has a very tough message. but what kind of modifications
or would that make this many days ahead of his speech? >> well, look, the modifications are probably less relevant the improvisational with president trump. we've seen this again and again. you could hand him ten pages of papers or put whatever you want on a teleprompter but he's willing to say what he wants on the spot. so i think the crossed arms, by the way, won't simply be other nations watching, but it will be his own advisors, including the u.n. ambassador. he could obviously make adjustments right onto the day of the speech. but we're look to go what he does at the moment. president trump warned in his final speech to the u.n., which i think was in september of 2016, about the danger of building walls, about the danger of nationalism to the mission. and so in some ways, now we are going to see if those warnings were heeded or not. >> and apparently telling mr. -- mr. trump before inauguration that it would be north korea, which is the biggest threat.
all right. julian as well let zer, thank you so much. >> as the white house gears up for the u.n. general assembly be sure to watch state of the union with jake tapper tomorrow morning. all right some people in florida finally getting the chance to return to their homes for the first time ins irma struck, and they will be seeing the kind of toll this hurricane has taken. we just got to take it one game at a time. next question. odell. odell. can you repeat everything you just said? my livestream won't load.

is. we got cell phone service back up. grocery stores starting to come back open. a priority before was get the hospital going. >> you got that going? >> yes. emergency room is operating and david clay, the head of the hospital said by tomorrow it will be about 75% and as the people start coming back further in the week he'll have 100%. >> what advice do you give to people who are starting to think about coming back. >> don't come back unless you can do most of the work yourself. or come down see what the damages are, line up the repair people. a lot of people don't have any other place to 125i. t stay. even having some issues in town. police the home and start putting the life pack together. >> this was not an easy
decision. i i mean by that there were other government entities in other parts of the keys, you went long, late and i heard very leaded sometimes last night trying to decide. >> well, absolutely, because key west, we were ready. we have our own police department and firearm. we own sewer plant, water utility is right here. we had our stuff up and running, but further up, for the next miles, they don't. they depend on the county. marathon is working hard to put the city back together but still have quite a ways to go. >> people are going to have to pass through arm a geden, almost just to get to key west. and that is a problem. >> exactly. the one the discussions is you're going to come through our city and thrslow us down on the road. it's all our road. we have to share it. our citizens have toe get back. we all come together. tn at the end of the day we're all
happy and shaking hands. moving forward together for the communities. >> thank you very much for joining us. good luck to key west. thank you. >>reporter: there you have it. not everybody agrees that key west is ternly ready to open to business but other parts people have to travel through, especially when you get up to big pine, there are a lot of folks saying no, no, no, no one should go back there just yet because they are blasted. that is true. >> it's a huge undertaking coming back and then trying to figure out how to manage because as the mayor just said, at least for a lot of the places in the keys, when you go home be ready to do the work your self. martin savidge, thank you so much. investigators want to know who knew what and when as very investigate eight deaths at a florida nursing home after hurricane if hurricane irma a criminal
