tv   New Day Weekend with Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul  CNN  January 19, 2019 5:00am-6:01am PST

5:00 am
the "new york times" is reporting house democrats have $1 billion for border spending in their package of bills to open the government. >> this as the president is making a speech he will give to the nation and the white house later this afternoon. together these developments could be some of the first signs of progress in the shutdown. as you wake up in the 29th day now. joining us, jeremy diamond, what are you learning about this potential coming closer together? maybe not closer together yet. at least advancing towards one another? >> that's right. it seems like we haveeing some movement. whether it is enough to bring two sides together appears unlikely. what the "new york times" is reporting the democrats are putting on the table an additional more than $1 billion in border-related funding. >> that includes $500 million for ports of entry and $563 million to fund additional
5:01 am
immigration judges, to process some of these asylum cases. interesting enough, both of those points the additional funding were included in the white house's earlier proposal earlier this month. that was viewed at the time the white house at least characterized it as an olive branch to democrats, offering them funding for some things they believe was important here. it seems like democrats are at least now putting these on the table as they end this negotiations. the president will address at 3:00 p.m. this afternoon presenting what a senior official tells us what will be his latest proposal to democrats. it appears both sides now are putting on the table some kind of new proposal. as of now that is unclear. the senior administration official is telling us the president is not going to be moving away from his demand for a border wall. again, that has been this intractable issue prolonging this government shutdown, which
5:02 am
is now entering, of course, it's 29th day today so we are about to hit a month here in this government shutdown and no end appears to be in sight. again it appears like both sides are trying to at least show some signs of negotiation here with these latest proposals, victor. >> jeremy, there any indication how quickly congress or president trump is willing to act if either of these are acceptable to either snert in other words, is there going to be the accept ability at the end of the day? >> we don't know. nancy pelosi the speaker of the house refused to provide funding for that while the shutdown is ongoing. the president insisted funding is necessary to reopen the government that seems like a pretty wide berth still between these two sides. it appears unlikely that is going to be the result today or frankly in the coming days, again, there is some discussion here.
5:03 am
though, for now, of course, there are no additional face-to-face negotiations on the books right now. >> all right. jeremy diamond, we appreciate it so much. thank you, sir. for lindsey graham is in turkey this week meeting with the turkish president to discuss the war in syria. this morning, they are warning president to withdraw all u.s. troops from syria is not a good idea. >> the roadman is the most important thing to be accomplished in the near term. so i would hope that president trump would slow the withdrawal until we truly destroy isis. if we do not do this, our withdrawal is going to create holly hell for turkey. senator graham weighed in on saudi arabia's alleged role in the murder of saudi journalist jamal cash oak. he said saudi bins salman must
5:04 am
be dealt with for u.s.-saudi relationships to move forward. kiersten guild brajild bran to speak and condemns anti-semitism. why? leaders have accused the march of anti-semitism. it left a cloud over hundreds of events planned around the country. erica hill joins us now from boston. good morning to you. tell us, how is this affecting the march where are you and what it means for the marches across the country. >> reporter: so, victor, kristi, that confusion is playing out despite a number of marches across the country. here if boston the executive director. the pvt. of the naacp the director of a jewish organization in boston pening and op-ed in the boston fwloeb to clarify this -- flown to
5:05 am
clarify this. anti-semitism in any form are not welcome here. despite those statements, there is still confusion over how these marches are or are not connected to the event in washington today. a movement that energized and unified so many just two years ago is today overshadowed by controversy. including accusations of anti-semitism within women's march, inc., the group that organizers the d.c. event. >> the women's march unequivocally condemns bigotry. >> it is a march about jewish people. >> we have repeatedly. >> louis forracon, the co-president attended and an event last year, where he called jews his enemy and povertied the photo in 2017, calling him the
5:06 am
greatest of all time. she has denounced anti-semitism. not his comments. >> as i said, i don't agree with many of mr. farrar racon's statements. >> you condemn them. >> i don't agree e. >> you won't condemn it. >> no, to be clear, it's not my language. it's not the way i speak. it is not how i organize, i think it is very clear over the 20 years of my own personal activism. my own personal track record who i am. >> reporter: shortly after that exchange on "the view" women's march inc. cancelled our interview. we sent them a list of questions. they have yet to respond. >> the problem in the beginning is they did not come out forcefully enough. >> reporter: have a fess have a ruble helped plan the first d.c. march and left shortly after for what she described as a bundle of reasons, including indiana semitism. current leaders saying ruble's departure had nothing to do with
5:07 am
her being jewish, citing growing pains at an evolving movement. >> it's impossible to grow up in america without coming to work with biases both unconscious and conscious. i think it is important for those biases to surface so that we can actually address them, move on, and become a stronger movement. >> reporter: ruble later co-founded march on, with a goal of getting more women elected in 2018. they're also offering support to marches around the country this weekend. national headlines are weighing on local events. in los angeles, new york city and florida, stark statements publicly distancing those marchs from washington and the d.c. leadership. new york city dealing with the added confusion of multiple events this year. a march organized for the third year by the women's march alliance and now a rally. organized by an offshoot of the d.c. group and the new york
5:08 am
immigration coalition. >> has the confusion impacted your support at all? >> i think it has, no question. the reality of people. people only hear women's watch, are you anti-semitic? we are 100% not in anyway, shape or form. >> reporter: a group in dwryoue removed their march. with all the changes and confusion, who are these marches for? >> we have conservatives problems life and pro choice on our board at women's march alliance because at the end of the day, women's rights are for every woman. >> the woman's march is opened to all? despite pledges of inclusion have an open invitation. here in boston, it's a little
5:09 am
quiet, things are expected to kick off at 10:00 a.m. at 12:30 the speakers of the newry elected congresswoman ion na presley. we hope to hear from her. we know from the organizers in look. more than 21,000 on facebook say they're interesting. but there are gen win questions not just because of the controversy, but some concern from local organizers with the elections of 2018 and what some organizers see as a victory, there could be, perhaps, a lower interest among turnout. we will see what happens today. we will be here throughout the day in boston. >> erica hill there in boston, thank you very much. we reached out to teresa shook. the hawaii woman, her facebook post after the election planted a seed for the initial women's march. she called for the d.c.
5:10 am
leadership to step down in december amod anti-semitism. they called her irresponsible and an attempt to frar the network. in a statement, shook says we all have the same goals for fairness, justice and inclusivity. even if our needs are different. women must be the ones to lead the way. the board member of the women's march is with us now. linda, thank you so much for being with us. >> thank you. >> first and foremost after all we seen in that story, do you denounce the words of louis farracon? >> we unequivocally have rejected the comments made by him and on jewish communities. we have said multiple times on our statements at womensmarch.com we unequivocally denounce transphobia and ask people to ask us directly and read our statements and understand we have been doing this work before there was a
5:11 am
woman's march. our track records are clear we have stood up for all communities. we are the first people on lines when there is a fight for the agenda this year. >> some of the other things happening, let me ask you about what florida congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz wrote this, while i still firmly believe in its values and mission, ki not associate with the national march and principles which repudiate anti-semitism and big ought terrorism. she says i cannot walk shoulder to shoulder with lead wloers lock arms with outspoken peddlers of hate. what's your response to that from the congresswoman? >> first of all, nobody was waiting for dpeb by wasserman schultz and her opinion whether she is going to march. she is one of the most divice it figures and had to step down for rigging elections and being an irresponsible leader at the dnc. so for us moving forward, it's not about debbie or anyone else. this is about all women in
5:12 am
america. we have actual injustice against our communities by this administration that should be the focus. the focus shouldn't be about one controversy. it should be about the controversial administration that cages children that has kept the government closed for 29 days, leaving 800,000 workers without pay. >> that is the true controversy collusion with russia. this administration is irresponsible and reaching havoc in our communities. >> that is what our focus is at the women's march. >> i know that you met with 13 rabbis, none of whom wrote that they engaged in frank discussion about the issues that are dividing our communities. none of those rabbis have now endorsed the women's march. what happened in these meetings that brought some sort of understanding and why is it not being more broadly understood when there are still women out there who seem to be uncomfortable with what's happening right now? >> i really appreciate you brought up those nine rabbis. what that proves is that we have been doing the work. we have been learning and
5:13 am
evolving as a movement and people have to understand that we are trying to create a big tent of women of all religious backgrounds, people of color. people of different sexual orientations, even people across the different ideology. okay, we will have people come with different biases. islamophobia exists. anti-blackism racist exists. we have to have the hard conversations. the reason trump is in office because we as a nation are not having frank conversations and being able to speak across our differences. we are a polarized nation so we went to the rabbis. we had a meeting and talked about issues on pain and trauma and historical trauma and trauma of black people in america. muslims, refugees. so we will continue those conversations. we are grateful for the jewish women who will be marching with us today. those jewish women will have joined our steering committee.
5:14 am
those who will be speaking on our stage today at the march. >> we don't have much time left i want to talk about. i don't know if you heard the end of erica hill's report. if you heard there may be a drop if participation. not because of the controversy but the successes of the women candidates in the 2018 mid-terms. people say, okay. job done. what would you sa say to those people and how is in facted that the women's march is pushing forward today? >> we just released a historic document that will go down in the history books. the boldest most intersectional policy platform led by, written by, researched by women. it is a tangible policy agenda that we can pass within the next two years. it's not enough to elect women to congress. it's not enough to elect progressives. now they got to go to work and be held accountable to the communities that put them there. on the issue of numbers. it's not a numbers game. this is a third anniversary march. there has never been a movement
5:15 am
in america that has been able consistently bring out a million people three years in a row. this is about public dissent. ensuring that people stand up and make sure this administration knows enough is enough. it's not enough tore people to be mad at home at the trump administration. you got to come out on the streets. we will be out in the cold. the weather is not on our side. we will still be out here. women have texted me telling me their buses have started to arrive in washington, d.c. we're fired up. we look forward for folks to read our agenda at women's.com slash agenda. to see what we stand for, who we are and the successes we have been able to accomplish over the last two years. i will lastly say that in this country, those closest to the pain are closest to the solution and that is why we are looking at women's leadership being challenged in america, in particularly women of color. we're not going anywhere. we have no choice but to defend our communities in these united states of america. >> we appreciate it so much. thank you for being here. >> linda mentioned the weather in some of these cities where
5:16 am
people will be struggling with this heavy snow and ice that's coming. frigid temperatures. hopefully this comes after thes. more than 100 million facing this massive storm that will stretch from missouri to maine. >> and it's dangerous so we will talk about that. also the "new york times" reporting this morning, house democrats have added $is billion in border-related spending in their package of bills to reopen the go. what does that move mean as we move forward to the brought speaking later this afternoon? we will talk to a democratic congresswoman about it next. you might take something for your heart... or joints. but do you take something for your brain. with an ingredient originally discovered in jellyfish, prevagen has been shown in clinical trials to improve short-term memory. prevagen. healthier brain. better life.

5:20 am
hi, i'm just looking at my account, and i've got all this extra cash back. yep. that's your cashback match. only discover will automatically match all the cash back new cardmembers earn at the end of their first year. you matched everything i earned this year? yeah. whoo! more money! more money! it's all very exciting. i'm going to spread the news! spread it wide! it's cashback match people! people! you know that. you all work here. new cardmembers get a dollar-for-dollar match at the end of their first year. only from discover. it's now day 29 of this partial government shutdown. the "new york times" is reporting how democrats have now added $1 billion in border-related spending to their package of bills to reopen the government. the money may be a counteroffer to a deal the president is expected to reveal in an announcement this afternoon. while federal employees across
5:21 am
the country are struggling. the white house is working to limit the pain for millions of other americans. the white house has told irs employees to report for work and begin processing those tax rurps. again, those workers, who are showing up will not be paid. many rank and file members of congress are not in washington today. they're in their districts, hearing from constituentles. democratic congresswoman from massachusetts is with us. we appreciate it. first and foremost. what do you think you need to hear from the president today? >> well, i, i want to hear from thet that we're going to end the shutdown. it's unconscionable we're going to be asking more employees to go to work and without pay. so you know i represent an irs facility. one in the third district in massachusetts and i met with them last week and there are real people suffering as a result of foregoing their first
5:22 am
paycheck, now looking at their second and, you know, we forget that so many of our federal employees are veterans, they're single parents taking care of a family and what i'm hoping is that we're making movement towards ending this shutdown quickly. >> i know one irs worker i told you last week, it feels like my government abandoned me. the truth is you are a part of that government now. what do you -- i guess i'm wondering, what do you want to hear from the president today? he is saying he will bring something to the table to entice democrats enough to get them back to negotiating and get the government reopened? what do you need to hear from him to make that happen? >> well, i think what we have to end is the practice of using a shutdown to have a policy debate. it's not -- we're not supposed to use the pain and suffering of
5:23 am
hard working men and women as a leverage or as a negotiating tactic when we don't agree on a specific policy. so i would hope we're 29 days into this shutdown, i would hope the president has a message to reopen the government so we can mitigate the damages that have been caused. when i took my oath of office just two weeks ago, the government has been shut down. i'm taken eight votes on the house floor to reopen the government. the reality is the government could be opened today if mitch mcconnell let that legislation be voted on in the senate. >> so the headline in the "new york times" this morning now, it's been the last couple of hours is that house democrats are going to add a billion dollars in border-related spending to reopen the government. basically this proposal will include more spending on border measures. it is scheduled for next week. will you vote on that? how will you vote? >> so i look forward to, yeah, i
5:24 am
absolutely look forward to looking at that proposal. there is no question we need to discuss openly border security and the solutions that work. i think that that is where the difference lies right now between democrats and republicans. from what i've heard from experts, you know, 90% of the drugs coming into this country, they're come income from ports of entry, where we need more scanning devices, we need more technology and sensors and drones, and so i think it's important for us to have that debate and make proper, smarter, cost effective investments so that we're actually solving the problems that we have today. >> okay. so, one of the things that you mentioned and we're all taking note of is the fact that people are being forced to go to work, federal employees and they're not getting paid for it. nobody is and there are no congress men or women in washington today. do you think that you should be
5:25 am
there to to be focusing on this, this weekend, that perhaps congress men and women should be staying there to hash this out as other federal employees are forced to go to work without pay until this is taken care of? >> that's a fair question. yesterday, i was happy to be home in our district because i wanted to hear and i did. i got to talk to prison guards who work in a federal prison in the district. you know, i have been in close contact with air traffic controllers, our irs employees. people working or not working at the environmental protection agency. because it's important that we magnify their stories and that the american public knows that there are real people hurting. these are their neighbors. these are people having to make tough tradeoffs before taking prescription drugs or putting food on the table for tear family when they miss a pay cycle. we are ready to go back to walk at a moment's notice. we have been told to you know
5:26 am
construct and strike, excuse me to structure our weekend that way so that we can all get back and hopefully take a vote that will reopen the government that the senate will also allow on the floor and do their jobs as well. >> real quickly, of course, we were talking about the women's march the controversy that's fol it. are you going to be marching today? >> i am. i have -- there are two marches in the district that i represent. i will be going to both. >> are you concerned about the controversy that is surrounding the march right now that the co-founder tamika mallory is refusing to denounce anti-semitic statements by louis farrah 'kahn? >> they are rightly under scrutiny. what i have observed with the women's march,s a bottom-up movement. certainly those types of belifse
5:27 am
and comments have no place in our society. the woman's march doesn't represent probably the most inclusive movement that we have had. and so i do believe this has taken on a movement in the last couple of years. it has manifest in living rooms and facebook forms and women running for office. i'm happy to be a part of that activism, women-led activism. i feel it's less right now about the leaders. it has been a catalyst for a movement that needed to plooeted new life into. >> well, congresswoman lor lori trahan. thank you for taking the time to be with us. >> thank you. almost 200 flights cancelled this weekend as a massive storm is slamming the east coast. 100 million people are already under weather alerts. we'll have the latest next.
5:28 am
lori trahan. this is strategic investing. because your investments deserve the full story. t. rowe price. invest with confidence. there's brushing...and there's oral-b power brushing. oral-b just cleans better. even my hygienist said going electric could lead to way cleaner teeth. and unlike sonicare, oral-b is the first electric toothbrush brand accepted by the ada. oral-b. brush like a pro. makeup now optional. new aveeno® maxglow™ infusion drops with kiwi to lock moisture. and soy to even skin tone. unleash dewy, glowing skin from within. new aveeno® maxglow™.

5:32 am
. it's coming. get ready for it. thousands of flights already cancelled an more than 100 million people are under a winter weather alert. this is from mid-west to the northeast, happening this weekend. >> of course, it's snow we are talking about. even more dangerous can be ice is expected in the north. then we have heavy rain, severe weather slamming the south. cnn allison chinchar in the weather center with the latest. i know this cold front coming behind the rain and the ice, how long could that ice event last? >> days. even for the kids that think, oh, man, i will not get a snow day, it's saturday. you may have school off on monday, because this snow and ice won't have time to melt over the next couple of days. you got snow coming down for
5:33 am
cities like chicago, detroit. it's starting to creep into dayton and columbus ohio, on the southern end, this is our concern for severe weather is. we have a watch for louisiana and mississippi until 1:00 this afternoon. you have winter weather alerts stretching from missouri to maine. it's a combination of some areas getting snow, some getting ice, freezing rain, sleet. some getting just about everything. by tonight, say about 8:00/9:00, cities like cincinnati, columbus, pittsburgh, will see that transition from snow into ice. cities like new york. will you initiate as snow. then you start to see it change over to everything over the next 24 hours. then the system finally begins to exit. you may get wrap-around snow for cities like new york once we get into tomorrow. not to mention lake effect bans may set up for erie, pennsylvania and cleveland into the day sunday. overall accumulations expected to be the highest portion of
5:34 am
interior new england. 18, 20, if not 24 inches is possible. cities like columbus and cleveland, 8 to 12 inches are expected. ice will be the biggest concern. especially for cities boston to hartfo hartford, it's not going anywhere the temperatures will remain cold for the next several days. so whatever comes down. even if you were to say a city like philadelphia or washington, d.c., guys, because these temperatures are going to hold tight, that rain is actually going to freeze over, victor, chri christi, that will cause problems. >> that will stick around some time. thanks so much. >> thanks. the four americans killed in a suicide attack in syria are returning home to dove airbase. a city not under isis control. >> the u.s.-backed democratic forces say it will escalate military operations inside
5:35 am
syria. cnn's chief correspondent clarissa ward is inside syria and takes us to the front line. >> reporter: the battle against isis is still raging. as the u.s. ally syrian democratic forces known as the sdf push in on the last sliver of territory under the militant's control. here the fighters prepare to move into the village of shapa. flares turn the dark night into day. coalition aircraft circle overhead, providing crushing air power. by daylight, they push further in. this is where isis ends, sdf commander tells his men. moments later, panic breaks out, isis has launched a counterattack. the sdf fire back and shapa is
5:36 am
quickly liberated. we travel down to the front line as they approach the next wij village. our experts insist on taking a armored vehicle. even liberated territory is far from control. these roads are still dangerous. especially early in the morning. because there are isis sleeper cells in the area that come out overnight and plant roadside bombs. with estop at a house the sdf took from isis just days earlier. mortars are fired off at positions. the commander takes us up on the roof to show us the front line. so the next village over, susa is where the front line is now. they're hoping that i will be able to liberate that by tomorrow. american forces provide assistance from just a few hundred yards away.
5:37 am
the commander warns the battle is not over. "the appreciate we had militarily is ending," he says. it is eradicating the ideas of isis. >> that will be a much tougher fight to win. support for isis still lingers here. on the way back, we passed through another recently-liberated area. this is what is left now of the town of hajime. you can see it's basically been completely obliterated and to many of the people who were live income areas like this and others, this is what liberation looks like. miles and miles of rubble. many here fear that buried in the destruction, the seeds are being sewn for another war. clarissa ward, cnn, shapa,

5:43 am
already serve, food pantries are helping furloughed workers and families with basic necessities as well. joining me to discuss is executive director of world central kitchen, nate mook. world central kitchen opened an emergency kitchen in washington, d.c. to support federal employees either working out pay or furloughed. nate, good to have with you us this morning. >> thank you for having me. >> the founder/chairperson jose an dres. he tweeted out this, i want to share this. he fed people at wildfires, after hurricanes. he tweeted this, never imagine we at world central kitchen would be feeding the justice department and fbi. i assume they never expected they would need a free meal. what are you seeing, what are you hearing? >> absolutely. this is new territory. we tend to work after hurricanes, volcanos, kwooild wildfires in the past year.
5:44 am
we serve about 5 million meals to folks in need. what we are seeing is a different type of disaster. it's not a natural disaster but a man-made disaster. and we're seeing a lot of folks that are struggling because of this we have hundreds of thousands of hard working federal employees that are now almost a month without pay. some of them still have to go to work every day and they still have to pay their rent, their mortgages. they have to put food on the table for their families. really, it's been overwhelming to see how much need there is for a hot plate of food. >> yeah. you talk about the need. i have been looking at the numbers, 4400 meals served the first day. 5,558 on day two. day three, 6,488 meals. so, growing consistently. are you surprised by the number of people who are coming out? >> we are. i think on day one, we were expecting maybe to seb about 2,000 folks on the high end and
5:45 am
