2:00 am
kill 370 million jobs. the work most at risk, physical jobs like operating machinery, fast food. already finding ways to a auto made, and data collection and processing. every time we talk about a i whowho higher minimum wage. >> every time we talk about this, you can't auto made broadcasting. just can't happen. "early start" continues right now. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >> get out and vote for roy moore. do it. do it. >> president trump going all in for roy moore in a new robo call going out to alabama voters on thee of the election. can the president move the needle for moore? >> violent protests across the middle east after president trump declares jerusalem as the
2:01 am
capital of israel. >> new concerns about whether republicans can deliver on tax reform. at crucial senator who says she hasn't made up her mind on the bill. got to reconcile this thing. >> moving through at lightning speed. >> very different versions. good morning. welcome to "early start." >> i'm dave briggs, monday, december 11, 5:00 a.m. in the east. this morning, all eyes on alabama. where the campaigns are roy moore and democrat doug jones are both in high gear ahead the state's special election tomorrow. today, former white house chief strategist steve bannon campaigns with moore. >> i did not know any of the women who have charged me with sexual allegations, molestation. i did not date underage women.
2:02 am
i did not molest anyone. >> right. >> and so these allegations are false. >> democrat doug jones barnstorming the state hoping the accusations against moore will help drive democrats to the polls. >> i believe those women at etowah county. it's like senator shelby said today. i want to make sure when my granddaughters grow up they don't have to endure the kind of thing those girls did and sit silent for 30 or 40 years. i want to make sure that we send a message of who we are and what we are. >> jones also counting on appearances of some democratic political heavy hitters to help with african-american turnout. including duval patrick. >> the heavy weight in moore's corner, president trump. >> hi this is president donald trump and i need alabama to go
2:03 am
vote for roy moore. but if alabama elects liberal democrat doug jones, all of our progress will be stopped cold. we need roy to help us with the republican senate. we will win and we will make america great again. >> let's bring in historian julian zelizer. >> good morning. >> that really is the question. donald trump, what does he mean for the undecided voters in alabama? it depends on who you ask. there are two prominent residents, bill brit, who interviewed roy moore and dean young who works on the campaign had different opinions about what president trump's opinion means in alabama. listen. >> steve bannon is the ultimate outsider. steve bannon ain't going to move the needle in alabama, just like president trump barely moved the needle in alabama when he came down here for luther strange.
2:04 am
this is an alabama race. i have covered politics here for a long long time. i've lived in other states and alabama is unique. people are proud. and they're going to make up their own mind. >> this is donald trump on trial in alabama. if the people of alabama vote for this liberal democrat, doug jones, then they're voting against the president who they put in office at the highest level. >> okay. let's take the latter. roy moore has been absent from the campaign trail. he has had nothing since tuesday. do they want this to be about donald trump and not about roy moore? >> no. i think they want it to be about the republican party. so i think they want republicans to vote republican no matter who's on the ticket, and that way you can remove roy moore at the end. i think it's less about trump than it is about the gop. >> you listen to senator richard shelby, he's not going to vote for the republican that's on the ticket. in fact he has already voted.
2:05 am
listen. >> we would like to retain that seat in the u.s. senate. but i tell you what, i -- there's a time -- we call it a tipping point, and i think so many accusations, so many cuts, so many drip, drip, drip, when it got to the 14-year-old story, story, that was enough for me. i said i can't vote for roy moore. >> this is somebody who sits on the senate banking appropriations committee. talking about tax reform. doug jones has a three-point lead in the most recent poll. that's within the margin of error. this is literally as tight as it could be. >> that's why turnout is on the mind of both parties. this could matter. coming from a senator from the state is different from outside. the question is did this cause some republicans no the to vote
2:06 am
at all. that could matter. i don't think people are going to flip. we heard this back in 2016. it didn't really happen. i don't think it's going to happen now. >> you'll need republicans to stay home and african-americans to really turn out, that's why they have cory booker down there. they are not using a robo call from barack obama. >> well, it's a tough call. some would argue that would be a great move to use president obama, and his popularity to energize the afcommunity. it might be a mistake, though. >> can we talk about tax reform quickly because front page usa today-poll find the the loiest level of public support forlegi.
2:07 am
this is seen as something that favors the rich. his tax writers have not given him that in this bill. how heavy a lift is it this week? they're going so quickly on this. i get so nervous about unintended consequence es when you do big legislation to quickly. >> this process has been a total mess. we've basically had legislators voting on things they didn't know they were voting on. they weren't even sure of the substance of the bill. that said, we're now in conference committee and it really will come down, it looks like, to senator collins. and whether all of a sudden, she tries to depart from the agreement that is reached, or if the house just passes the senate version of the bill. which would also move it forward. but, i think many people are scratching their heads watching a congress vote on a bill where they don't even know what's in it. and it's going to have huge ramifications in this country.
2:08 am
>> every cornerth economy will be affected. if if you are he a grad student, high tax state. i mean i could go on. doctors and lawyers are concern the right now because they're woefred how their income is going to be treated. i think the polls are so universally disapproving of it that it gives somebody like senator collins cover if she needs to not vote with her party. >> this is not something the public is clamoring for but yet republicans see it as a victory just to have some bill they can talk about. the but it might be a devil's bargain a. >> coming up the press saying we have a rigged system and,ness. >> all right. thanks. a sixth day of skriviolent prot. israelis launching air strikes.
2:09 am
palestinian officials report two fatalities, more than 300 people injured friday alone in the west bank gaza and jerusalem. let's go live to beirut this morning and bring in ben wedeman. we understand there have been violent protests not too far from the u.s. embassy. >>reporter: that's right. we were there. there were more than a thousand people who gathered at at round about which is about a mile down the hill. there were times when some of the young er protests were throwing rocks, plastic water bottles and sticks in the direction of the lebanese security forces who responded with tear gas and birdshot. however, some of the organizers did try to keep it under control. by and large in fact the demonstration was peaceful. now, as i said, the american embassy is a good mile away from that location but there's a gate
2:10 am
at the bottom of that hill which they close when you have demonstrations of like what we saw yesterday. what was interesting, christine, was that this demonstration brought together palestinian refugees, islam mist groups, lebanese leftist parties. groups that in recent years have been divided over things like the war in syria, yemen, but they do seem to have come together in their condemnation and rejection of president trump's declaration, a recognition of jerusalem as the capital of israel. today, we're expecting a very large, perhaps the largest demonstration yet, organized by hezbollah in this case in the southern suburbs of beirut. there are no american institutions or installations in that area. we don't expect it, there to be any violence in this case because his boll la is if anything, very well disciplined.
2:11 am

2:16 am
years, it happens to some degree. it's just more intense and widespread and we're about ready to have firefight fighting at christmas. >> reporter: dave and christine this is the southern california's largest fire. you can see it burning in the hills. it is most visible when the sun sets in those overnight hours. it is marching closer and closer to santa barbara, further northwest fuelled by wind and dry brush. it has been some 250 days here in california without any sort of significant rain. firefighters relying on helicopters to be the big game changer in dealing with this wildfire. here's what one firefighter told us. >> the helicopters have been a huge help. they get in there and make the water drops and slow it down,
2:17 am
cool it off enough to get -- allow firefighters to get in there on the ground and make better attack on the fire. >> it's not just in h the air, but also on the ground. there are some 4400 firefighters just in this one wildfire, trying to contain it. dave, christine? >> all right. thank you for that. >> let's check out the weather forecast. julie martin has the latest. >> well, david and christine, the thomas fire only 10% contained, moved off toward the north. already 230,000 acres consumed with this fire. when you take a look at the sheer size of this you can see what the firefighters have their work cut out for them. 359 square miles. that is bigger than the city of chicago in size. the good news is five of the six other fires are now more than
2:18 am

2:31 am
trump declares jerusalem the capital of israel. >> concerns about whether republicans will be able to deliver on tax reform. crucial senator who says not yet made her mind up on the bill. welcome back to "early start" everybody. >> i'm christine romans, just about 31 minutes past the hour. let's begin with alabama and the campaign of roy moore and doug jones ain high gear. >> i did not know any of the women who have charged me with sexual allegation. >> okay. >> molestation. i did not date underage women or molest anyone. these allegations are false. >> democrat doug jones
2:32 am
barnstorming hoping the accusations he against moore will drive them to the polls. >> it's just senator shelby said, when there's smoke there's fire. i want to make sure when my granddaughters grow up they don't have to endure the kind of things those girls did. i want to make sure that we send a message of who we are and what we are. >> jones also counting on rallies with democratic heavy hitters including appearances with cory booker and duval patrick. >> the heavy weight in moore's corner, president trump who recorded this robo call. . >> hi, this is president donald trump and i need alabama to go for rome but if they' leekt liberal democrat doug jones all the progress will be stopped cold.
2:33 am
we need roy to help us with the republican senate. we will win and we will make america great again. >> all right. let's bring in historian julian zelizer. you wrote a great piece how this is such and important race for the republicans and their strategy. >> sure. look, moore represents a narrowing of this republican party. it's part of the room to focus on the white male voter at a time many thought the party would try to browsen itself. things moved in a different direction and in some ways this election would symbolically keep the party where it's been in the last few months. it's going to be hard as a winning strategy in the long-term. >> the president right now is clearly trying to govern that 32/35% and just keep them in his corner. but as for alabama on tuesday, you have doug jones who wants to make this about roy moore, and roy moore who does not want it to be about roy moore, he wants to make it about donald trump or
2:34 am
the republican party. what carries the day? is. >> i think partisanship could carry the day. i think that's what democrats are worried about. this is a deeply republican state and they are counting on the fact that in the end most voters will come out to support a republican. the only thing that could counteract that is an incredible mobilization effort in the next two days by the democrats to bring out african-american voters and some of the less heard voters in this state. >> we know senator cory booker is there, duval patrick, but you talk about this is a republican state. senator rich ard shelby didn't even vote for the republican on the ticket. listen. >> we would like to retain that seat in the u.s. senate, but i tell you what, i -- there's a time -- we call it a tipping point, and i think so many
2:35 am
accusations, so many cuts, so many drip, drip, drip, when it got to the 14-year-old story, story, that was enough for me. i said i can't vote for roy moore. >> even he can't vote for roy moore. >> that's the question to me. if enough republicans in the state decide to just not vote. and on the democratic side i have the surgeon. >> look, shelby is from the state, authentic voice in the state. that could resonate. >> i can't imagine that will bring people out to do a write-in candidate. i think it comes down to them staying home. the president on friday, in pensacola campaigning for roy moore. but also sowing mistrust in our institutions. listen to what he said. >> this is a rigged -- this is a
2:36 am
rigged system. this is a sick system from the inside. and you know, there's no country like our country, but we have a lot of sickness in some of our institutions absz we're working very hard. >> what's he trying to do here? >> this has been a theme of his since the campaign. my guess is this has to do with the investigation. that's the fear some people have that the way to cure the sickness is to try to fire the special counsel. and so that is the question. that's where this kind of rhetoric is coming from. that said, we have heard this, over and over. he delegitimizes all parts of our political institution so he can become the savior to his supporters. he can be the hero who flies in and fixes everything. the problem is the question is now whether he is actually the problem and whether the
2:37 am
controversy centers around him. >> how much do you think is deflektsid deflecti deflecting -- in h a usa pole on his tax strategy that puts the weakest approval. >> it's unpopular legislation. he's unpopular nationally and that last shows his support even falling with groups such as evan gel i cal voters, non college educated white voters. i'm sure the white house is seeing that and reading it. the go-to argument for the president is often that there are problems that explain why people don't like him or why people don't approve of what he's doing. but, again the real question is does it connect with the investigation and does it push him into step that is would be politically explosive. >> hard to explain that approval rating with the economy as healthy as it is as he reminds people each and every day, as he probably should, but it's staggering to see an approval
2:38 am
rating that low. >> his approval rating and the job and stock market. he gets a little pore credit for his handling of the economy but overall all. we were told to -- >> this is a praez who is pushing the conventional wisdom and does so much else that creates contro skrersy, i think the irony is he often under cuts some of the news that would be beneficial to him. we don't focus on the economy because of his own twitter feed and statements. that's part of the trump presidency. we will learn now that a good economy does not necessarily mean popular president. >> we've got a tax reform bill that is going to start moving rapidly even though we don't know quite what's in there. remains to be seen. stay tuned. thanks. former president trump kman open officials paul manafort and colleague rick gates expected back in court this morning.
2:39 am
manafort allegedly violating a gag order. the commentary written with a russian. and related to his political work for ukraine. mueller's office says it's not seeking to put him in jail but no longer backs the other deal. >> a newly released it document backs why attorney general jeff sessions did not clis dose. sessions was not required to disclose foreign contacts. it happened during the course of his duties as a senator. the newly released e-mail supports the justice department's original explanation given last may when cnn first reported the omission of foreign contacts on sessions' security clearance form. the gop tax bill working its way through the conference committee but as the house and
2:40 am
senate hammer out the differences, suze san collins s she may not vote for the final version. >> i always wait until the final version it brought before us before making a final decision or whether or not to support it. the there are major difference es between the bills and i don't know where the bill is going to come out. >> collins' vote is certainly important. they can only lose two gop votes. senator bob corker voted against the original. collins told cnn she may vote no f. certain amendments are not included. including deductions for property taxes and medical expenses and medicare payments will not be cut. she got agreements from both the house and senate. will they honor them? >> right. >> that is the key. >> there is so much in here. the i cannot say it loudly enough. this will affect every corner of
2:41 am
the economy. it's not tax simplification. it's going to be very complicated tax preparers looking for big money. it's going to add to the deficit. it's permanent corporate tax cut but not permanent relief for the he middle class. >> weal we see. >> 41 minutes after the hour. huge wildfires burning in h southern california. we've got a live report next. adb whose fleece was white as snow. but after an electrical fire from faulty wiring, mary's vintage clothing and designer shoe collection were ruined. luckily, the geico insurance agency had recently helped mary with renters insurance, and she got a totally fab replacement wardrobe at bloomingdale's. mary was inspired to start her own fashion line, exclusively for little lambs. visit geico.com and see how affordable renters insurance can be.

2:47 am
birdshot. some of the organizers did try to keep it under control. by and large the demonstration was peaceful. the american embassy is a good mile away from there, but there's a gate at the bottom of the hill which they close when you have demonstrations like what we saw yesterday. what was interesting, christine, was that this demonstration brought together palestinian refugees, islamist groups, lebanese leftist parties, a groups that in h recent years that have been divided over things like the wars in syria and yemen. but they do seem to have come together in the condemnation and rejection of president trump's declaration, recognition of jerusalem as the capital of israel. now, today, we're expecting a very large, perhaps the largest demonstration yet, organized by hezbollah in this case and the southern suburbs of beirut.
2:48 am
there are no american institutions or installations in that area. we don't expect there to be any violence in this case because hezbollah is, if anything a very well disciplined. >> all right. thanks, ben. time for a look at what's coming up on "new day," chris cuomo consumes 12 diet cokes a day. we assume he is through two by now. >> we have both strict rules about touching the hair. you know how much i paid for it. you know. everyone has a name, everyone is numbered. looking at phil and phyllis. i have people similarly named because it keeps is is simple. some type of virus or something. condensed the fabric of the jacket, briggs, maybe you can do an investigation on that. i don't know what happened.
2:49 am
