tv CNN Newsroom Live CNN April 29, 2018 1:00am-2:00am PDT
good morning. we are live from atlanta. i'm natalie allen. >> and i'm george howell. newsroom starts right now. 4:00 a.m. on the u.s. east coast. we start with developments. kim jong un putting forward a time line to shout down nuclear test site. >> he also says she not the kind of person to fire nuclear weapons at south korea or the united states. mr. kim reportedly made the comments on friday.
paula, walking back some of his past war rhetoric. >> yes. just a year ago he threatened to turn into a sea of flames. it was the rhetoric up until months ago. there were eyebrows that were raised when he said i'm not the kind of person to hit mainland united states with a nuclear weapon. to be fair i think there are few that believe he would ever do that. it is the exact opposite really that we have seen from kim jong un over the past few years tlchlt have been videos made from north korea showing washington being destroyed in a
nuclear blast. certainly that was a move from what we were used to. we do know we have time frame at least for this test site. it was quoting kim. it is still not directly from kim jong un himself. he did mention there were deeper tunnels that were in very good conditions. he did negate the chinese geeologists. >> we are live with new developments. thank you, paula. statements from the korean leaders come ahead of another diplomatic breakthrough, a summit between u.s. president donald trump. >> i remember, you know, it was very rough, three or four months
ago. >> this was trump in a rally. some chanting he should get is the peace prize. north korea could be weeks away. prime minister of japan praising north and south korean leaders for seeking a goal. >> prime minister abe in hopes that this declaration will lead to concrete actions. let's talk about how serious she about getting rid of nuclear weapons. it is the director of korean
risk group analysis firm. thank you for joining us. >> thank you for inviting me. >> if he is so ready why taunt and threaten the world with nuclear a nuclear annihilation. they said let's make peace, not war. >> there are two possible explanations. the exact answer is unlikely to be known. some people say that he was just playing his usual trick. you need something you look dangerous. you threaten we everybody. suddenly you changed your tone and you say let's talk.
for your willingness to solve the crisis you are getting some concessions. second option is slightly different, probably a kind of diplomacy war are what they initially wanted to do donald trump being the united states president and over the last year there rb more leaks and hints that the white house was serious. it would become a disaster for everybody. it would be a disaster for north and south koreans. it is quite possible they
some were chanting nobel. >> it cannot be described by interthagsal blackmail however it is very risky. it is likely not just backfire but danger use results. if north korea is under pressure not give in but it's a big issue whether it's going work in the long run but so far it has worked. >> we appreciate your thoughts. we hope to have you on with us. thank you. the political divide on full display on what you could call a
tale of two washingtons. it is historically a place where they roast politicians. many targeting the man right there. >> there has been war between the media and the president for some time now. washington township michigan, president trump targeted the media and democrats. we have the president's rally in michigan. >> the president kicked off by noting he was invited to another event in washington d.c., saying he would rather be here among his supporters. the president calling that event phony. the president also took aim including the media and certain
democrats like chuck shchumer. tester is the ranking democrat and he had some role in syncing the president for the secretary of veterans affairs. the president seemed to threaten tester. >> senator john tester of a really great place in montana who voted in favor of sanctuary cities didn't vote for tax cuts. he took a gentleman who is a truly high quality human being and what they said about him, what they said about this great american doctor, an admiral in the navy and tester started throwing out things that he heard. i know things about tester that i could say too. if i said them he would never
>> thank you. always a pleasure to have you ton show. looking ahead there is potential for a big meeting between donald trump and kim jong un. let's put this into context. could such a big possible win eclipse the controversial patterns to bolster his party? >> it may be one of the ideas. trump is in trouble but his advisers keep telling him about it. he is confident. he just doesn't believe bad news. it is possible they will try to, you know, do the pr version of the kim meeting to help his
stature of the world. he would be better off pushing ahead to tax reforms, tax cuts. that's what his aids are telling him. on the kim question you had very good discussion but nothing's really happened. let's be fair. i would be shocked if kim denuclearized. it is weapons that make him important in the world. north korea without nuclear weaponings would be like saudi arabia without oil. no one would care. it is important that kim keep his stature because he is running a country with deep deep economic problems. so let's see what happens. it's better that they chat, better that they talk and better that they smile.
i think this could be very disappointing indeed. >> i want to talk about the issue of border security when the president is speaking in michigan. of another threat from a possible government shutdown. let's take a listen. >> we have to have borders and we have to have them fast. we need security. we need the wall. we'll have it all. if we don't have border security we'll close down the country. we need border security. >> we have heard threats like this before. when do statements like this just become empty threats? >> well, it is an fempty threat. you couldn't shut down the country even if you wanted to. you actually, if you look at the
figures you'll find illegal immigration for mexico way down and the mexican economy is doing better. more people are going home. fewer people are actually coming. even if that's wall it's not hard to get under walls. shut down the country. we are an open country. we are a country that believes in trade. we are a country of immigrants who have been built as the country of immigrants. if this one does trump very often has a point. this point seems to be simply political. this one is an empty threat. >> all right. also at the rally the cha crowd there was chanting. let's listen to the chant.
the chant there, nobel, nobel. the question though, mr. trump and a possible nobel honor. your thoughts. >> maybe the crowd thought he should get the prize for literature. who knows what they thought? >> i would be making a joke. i think we are pretty far down to road. it's a crowd that loves him. that's why he went there. the white house correspondent dinter was going to go on at the same time. he said why should i take shot after shot and pretend the smile. he said it's mump. they were shouting lock her up about hillary clinton.
this was a campaign rally, the people who were clearly his supporters. does it mean a lot? probably not. trump did all of his old tried and tested goodies. it worked with a lot of people that still loved him. i'm sure he did much more than he would have done at the other washington. >> you had me when you turned the corner with the word literature. we'll have to see how this -- >> i don't think it will be chemistry. >> a pleasure to have you. >> maybe they need you to create a new category for president trump, nobel.
. white house officials may not have been amused at their expense. >> reporter: wrapping up here. the annual nerd prom, the mash-up of journalists, politicians and although no president donald trump here, several members of his administration and his staff at the white house. we were told the president personally encouraged members of his team to attend this year when last year they were told not to come. everyone seemed to be getting along fairly well. stormy daniels attorney ton red carpet. the dinner got underway. scholarships were handed out. a lot of celebration about influence of journalism.
michelle wolf took the stage. that's when things got a little iffy. about mid-way through her routine wolfe also got. she was a foou few feet away. >> i actually really like sarah. i think she is very resourceful. she burns facts and creates it to make the perfect smoky eye. like maybe she's born with it. maybe it's lies. >> reporter: she made a joke saying we wanted her to be quiet. she might accept a similar payment to the one michael cohen
made the porn star. >> i'm a woman so you cannot shut me up unless you have michael cohen wire me $130,000. rnch all in all we watched the room go quiet. we watched people's faces get get stone any faced. i'm talking about journal she made jokes about ivanka trump i'm kate, cnn. >> thank you. the u.s. president choosing not to be there. >> the first to not attend other
than reagan who didn't because he had been shot. mike pompeo makes his first visit to the middle east and he is bringing a message from the u.s. president. you may have to pay more for your favorite bottle of why. you drink? >> yeah. >> we'll tell you why global wine production has hit a historic low. of audiobooks. audible lets you follow plot twists off the beaten track. or discover magic when you hit the open road. with the free audible app, your stories go wherever you do. and for just $14.95 a month you get a credit, good for any audiobook. if you don't like it exchange it any time. no questions asked. you can also roll your credits to the next month if you don't use them. so take audible with you this summer... on the road... on the trail...

table. how will that go over in saudi arabia? >> certainly saudi arabia was a fierce opponent of barack obama's iran deal. they will probably see eye to eye. it is despite the fact that germany, the united kingdom are poe pos opposed to that. one of the main concerns of saudi arabia and the united states and israel as well is the iranian missile program pompeo will probably get an earful about what they say is the
threat of iranian supplied missiles to the rebels in yemen. yesterday the saudi news agency reported four ballistic missiles were intercepted over in southwestern saudi arabia. it will probably be part of the topic. by and large secretary pompeo who prior to joining the trump administration was also a harsh critic of the iran nuclear deal. he will probably get a receptive audience from the saudis, natalie. >> thank you for that. now over to george. >> all right. thank you. the next stop for pompeo is
israel. the suggestion that the u.s. may back out could be years news. nett in the vent it won't be fixed in a couple of weeks which seems unlikely he will be lobbying for trump to pull out of the iran deal. that's what he wanted to hear. he has the same concern as the saudis in this case. then what has been called here the sunset clauses.
there are restrictions on the economy that are lifted. that's been the other concern. if those aren't fixed he is very much lobbying for the u.s. or trump to pull out of the iran deal. he never visited while he was secretary of state. a strong show of force an and diplomacy. >> live in jerusalem. we'll stay in touch with you. still ahead, a woman coming back from her honey moon dies on an american airlines flight. why the family is now suing. we'll tell you about it. a survivor doesn't want attention just to help other

wakes. he says the goal of the talks will be to denuke the korean peninsula. president trump skipped the white house. she mocked the president's net worth and some called her comments a disgrace. a woman's family claims american airlines did not get the woman the appropriate medical attention she needed. they want american to re-examine its policies. >> reporter: it paints a disturbing picture of what happened to a woman two years ago. they were flying home from hawaii according to the lawsuit. three hours into the flight she
started feeling dizzy and disoriented. as the plane flew over new mexico she eventually lost consciousness. a doctor ton flight recommended the plane land immediately to get her to a lophospital. it didn't happen. the flight continued another 90 minutes by the time the plane landed she was without a pulse and died three days later. >> why did the pilot continue on with the flight when he had a dook to telling him she needed to land, that my client was in distress and needed emergency
medical care. >> also alleged equipment malfunctioned. american airlines saying the company would not address specific claims. aviation expert says there are plenty of question that is still need to be questioned. >> we need to ask what would be the issue or cost on diversion. it's something this lawsuit would address. southwest airlines, fatal engine failure. a passenger says she is offering
physical and emotional injuries. it shattered a window and one woman was killed. >> they claim southwest manufacturer disguarded passenger safety. they are working to investigate why that happened. >> the future is closer than we think. coming up, why some think unchecked artificial intelligence should be dangerous even if they are kind of cute. vo: gopi's found a way to keep her receipts tidy,
their homes. thousands are now trapped in a forest with no access to humanitarian aid. >> they are mostly christian. they have been fighting for more control over their lives in the preco predominantly buddhist nation. >> will artificial intelligence be a blessing or a curse? >> this is atlas. he behaves in surprisingly human ways. take a look.
the robots ensz shlly teach themselves to achieve goals with artificial intelligence. ai critic tweeted this is nothing. that bot will move so fast you'll need a strobe like to need it. sweet deems. this robot dog is called spot mini. he can open this door if his little friend. >> they stopping at nothing
until it reaches it goal. >> this last august he tweeted if you're not concerned about ai safety you should be along with a picture that says in the end machines will win. some experts are paying attention. critics fear there is far more sinister potential than friendly animal robots. >> some see a future where ai could even lead to human extinction. we spoke with some of the experts to see what they think.
>> it will be much more than another industrial revolution. it will be something that transcends human kind itself of and even buy iology itself. >> his goal to create artificial intelligence radically smarter than humans. artificial intelligence is what makes syria respond. >> what do we have here? inside ai pushes beyond that. cars teach themselves to park. >> when you move your head you are going to follow and you can direct it. >> drones learn to follow humans. >> i go forward.
i go backwards. >> in the beginning it's a total failure. still, none of this comes close to super intelligence. he believes it can be achieved in near decades. so there are those who are skeptical that say it could enter another sort of deep plea freeze per yochltd -- period. >> i don't see that at all. >> i think it will effect all aspects of our lives.
>> he worries not enough is being done to prepare for potenti potential dangers. >> given everything you know so far are you optimistic about the future of humanity? >> this doesn't get enough air time but there is an we nor house up said. >> he admits it's like playing with fire. >> we are not going to stop further development because the pros outweigh the cons so much. >> it may be unpredictable but they agree when it comes to ai the match has been struck.
he got drinking wine into the weather forecast. >> blame it on the weather. we even pay more for wine. >> you promise not to whine about it. i'll be here all day folks. your favorite bottle of wine will see an uptake at the super market. it is vine and wine. it's a decrease in 8 point of of 6%. it is due to mainly poor weather
conditions across the area. it is from europe into south africa. we are talking about a major decline. we are talking about a 60 year low. where was it impacted? france into italy and also south africa is also in the midst of one of the worst droughts in over a century. combine it with frost, hail, you name it the impacts have been felt across the wine industry throughout the world and some areas hit worse than others. your bottles of wine expected to increase in terms of cost. 40 45% increase as you head to some of your favorite stores.
so the cheap bottle of swine is what we expect to see increase. we have poe ttential of large h and we have the greatest impact there. we head to get on our favorite glass. >> do we have a favorite? >> anything under $12. >> i call it a headache in a bottle. all right. we'll make a turn here to a horrible tragedy that occurred
to this country. last october the las vegas mass shooting killed over 50 people. many made it out alive recovered mentally and physically. >> one survivor is making it his mission to help others effected by this massacre. >> you're so beautiful. >> hug after hug. >> so good to see you. >> how are you doing? >> they gave him and is now giving to other survivors. >> it's truly amazing. >> $1,000 each, 11,000 in all. >> please the not lose hope.

it would kind of put some of us at a little bit of peace. >> millions have already been raised by other charities in the state but given mostly to families of the dead and physically injured. the need goes on. >> there are thousands of people who are at that concert who are in need of financial assistance to help with things like medical bills and mental health treatment. >> brian was there under fire and then on cnns new day. >> everybody was screaming. >> our team is unstoppable. >> they are holding a fundraising concert and
