tv   Erin Burnett Out Front  CNN  August 21, 2019 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT

4:00 pm
later shelved but touched off 11 straight weekends of dmanlds for full democracy. the recently protest drew 1.7 million people. i'm briana keeler and erin burnett "outfront" starts right now. outfront next, tone deaf, the president lashing out at denmark's prime minister calling her comment nasty after she said greenland is not for sale. plus, president trump feeds his ego, declaring now he is the chosen one. and he didn't stop there. and a california man acquiesced of plotting to commit mass murder at a hotel and his arrest part of a disturbing new trend. let's go outfront. good evening, everyone. i'm kait baldwin in for erin burn pet. youfrpt, trump's thin skin. the president not letting the whole buy greenland thing go.
4:01 pm
after abruptly canceling his visit to denmark he stepped up attacks on the danish prime minister. >> denmark i looked forward to going but i thought the prime minister's statement that it was absurd -- an absurd idea was nasty. i thought it was an inappropriate statement. all she had to do was say no we wouldn't be interested. >> the president referring to yet another woman as nasty. it's a word he often used when describing women he disagree was or simply calling him out. denmark's prime minister responded to the president's attack saying this. i don't think i have been blunt or harsh in in discussion. in fact, i think we have answered in a nice tone from our danish side. that tone she is talking about was her previous reaction to trump wanting to buy greenland when she called it -- she said it was an absurd discussion and said in, greenland is not danish. greenland belongs to green ltd. i strongly hope this is not
4:02 pm
meant seriously. that is nasty. apparently. not by most standards. it is a blow though to the president who likes to claim he is the ultimate deal maker. >> all they had to do was say, no we'd rather not do that, or we'd rather not talk about it. don't say what an absurd idea that is. because she is not talking to me. excuse me. she is not talking to me. she is talking to the united states of america. you don't talk to the united states that way. at least under me. >> don't talk to him or the united states that way. let's be clear, the president of the united states has been called much worse. remember dotar, north korean leader kim jong un in an official statement saying this. i will surely and definitely tame the mental mri did he ranged usd otard with fire. and how did the president respond to that insult? he didn't cancel a trip. not at all. he met with kim three times.
4:03 pm
and even sent him love letters. or how about russia? it threatened to quote precise and painful response to u.s. sanctions. apparently that's not nasty at all because trump is now cozying up to president putin but saying no to selling an island to the president of the united states, according to trump, that is nasty. where does this go from here? denmark's prime minister said this today. i hope we can stop the discussion from a danish perspective we definitely want to do that. so we can focus our energy on what is important. and here is what the former danish foreign minister told me today. >> well, i hope that tomorrow both the president, the american, and denmark will look forward and see that we have so many things to do in the arctic region. >> they are clearly ready to turn the page on this. i'll leave it up to you to decide if you think the president is ready to poff on as well. but if history is any indication, do not count on it. and whatever you do, don't call
4:04 pm
the president thin skinned. i don't have thin skin i have very strong, very thick skin. >> god help ourselves. boris sanchez is outfront at the white house. boris are there any indications that president trump is willing to let this dispute go? >> no, kait, in fact shortly after the statements you played from president trump in a afternoon at the white house. he tweeted critically about denmark spending on defense in the nato commitments. it's unclear where the president with got the idea that greenland was for sale. but he has clearly taken this hart to cancelling the trip to denmark all together. a noted shift from last night on twitter where he thanked the danish prime minister for being candid and saving the united states money on travel. the president as you pointed out is a frequent critic of the united states allies often closest allies as you know. denmark very supportive of the united states foreign policy sending troops into the iraq and
4:05 pm
afghanistan buts in a lens into the president thinking on politics and specifically foreign policy. to him this is all personal. he is nice to people like vladimir putin and kim jong un when they say nice things about him. when the danish prime minister expresses disbelief that the united states would try to buy greenland even though no indication indication it was more sell he kass calls her a nasty woman. >> thanks, appreciate if outfront now democratic congressman from michigan andy levin sits on the house foreign affairs committee thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> what do you make of the president of the united states a nato ally no less nasty today? >> well, it's another example of the president's sexism. and it's also dising a good ally for no reason. you know, greenland was not for sale. imagine if another country said, well we will buy florida now. and the president said, florida
4:06 pm
is not for sale, excuse me. and they got all mad about it. it's really ridiculous. >> i have heard over and over that no matter how ridiculous, the strong alliance between the united states and denmark will endure this episode if you want to call it that. duping, though, that this is doing damage? >> yes it's doing damage. we have to take it seriously as absurd as the. 's behavior is he makes us a laughing stock of the world when he makes the absurd claims and cancels trips to allies to visit an ally at the same time that he is wanting to allow russia back into the g-7. simply because of whatever way he is beholden to vladimir putin. that in terms of american foreign policy we have an
4:07 pm
adversary that violated the rule of law, invaded another country, an ally of ours and annexed a significant part of it. and he is ready to let that go without conditions. that is extremely disturbing. and if i were a u.s. ally i wouldn't -- i would be very mistrustful of our government, because how do you deal with someone who behaves like donald trump? >> i do want to ask you about that. let me play for you're viewers what the president said about it today, because this is -- you didn't only double down on his criticism of the danish prime minister he doubled down on what you are talking about. now he wants to invite did dsh offering support for vladimir putin, wanting to invite russia back to the g-7. here is how he put it. >> he made a living on outsmarting president obama. and frankly because of it ob was upset and he got obama out of
4:08 pm
what was the g-8 into the g-7. i think russia should be a part of it because we're looking for world peace. and other things, trade and other things. and it would be a lot easier to have russia in where they had always been. >> what does this say to you about president trump's approach to diplomacy? >> it says that we have a president who has less understanding of foreign policy than any other in our modern history. here he is accusing his predecessor of being thin skinned for -- and having his ego bruised and therefore acting against russia on the very dayna he withdraws from a trip to an ally because they told him that a significant part of their territory is not for sale. and he personalizes everything. and everything is about donald
4:09 pm
j. trump and his ego. we have to take the invasion of ukraine seriously. it has to have consequences. and we -- we cannot allow any country to be running around invading its neighbors and -- neighbor and taking over its territory and then say, oh, well, let by gones be by gones you are back in the g-8. perhaps one of the very biggest plums russia would like. and we've seen the reaction in russia, kait, they are going bananas over there, gloating, cheering. they cannot believe the gifts that donald trump gives russia every day. and it's an embarrassment for our country. >> congressman, i want to ask you, you are a jewish american, a democrat. >> yes. >> today president trump defend the his statement that jewish americans vote for democrats are disloyal. here is how he put it.
4:10 pm
>> i haven't heard anybody say that. just the opposite. i think that if you vote for a democrat you're very, very disloyal to israel and to the jewish people. >> he says his comments are not anti-semitic. but do you think those comments are anti-semitic? >> those comments absolutely are anti-semitic. kait, this is the president of the united states repeating a trope about dual loyalty that has been heart of the oppression of jewish people in countries all over the world for centuries. >> does it make a difference to you, congressman, if he doesn't -- he doesn't view it as anti-semitic? or he doesn't know it is? >> that's almost more troubling than if he did, isn't it, kate? i mean here is a person talking about fine people on both sides when neo-nazis were on the march in charlottesville. here is a person who repeatedly
4:11 pm
talks about people from latin america come to our country as an invasion and then we have white supremacist massacres in our country by people who put up, you know, statements on the internet that say they are doing it to avoid an invasion of latinos. the president is at the center of a male strom of white supremacy and hate crimes. i don't care whether he knows what he is doing or not. he is a danger to jewish people in this country. he is undermining the incredibly important alliance between america and israel. it's been bipartisan and supported by presidents republican and democratic since harry truman. and we have to protect bipartisan support for israel and for a two-state solution. so that israel can live at peace alongside a palestine neighbors where palestines have rights
4:12 pm
respected too. we know what we need to to do somehow we have to survive the president long enough and our allies understand that he doesn't represent the will of the american people. and on november 3rd 2020 we have to get a president who can begin to restore our relationships where he is friendly with our allies and doesn't suck up to dictators like kim jong un and vladimir putin. >> i will say, far before november 2020 the conversation about anti-semitism and the rise of anti-semitism in our country is far beyond the politics and we must have the conversation much sooner than november 3rd. i know you agree with it. >> i agree with it every day. as a jewish congressman who neighbors my palestinian accommodates rashaada tlaib we talk about it metro detroit. >> thanks for coming in. >> thank you take care. >> outfront next, president trump is known to have an ego. but is he taking it now to a whole new level?
4:13 pm
>> somebody had to do it. "i" the chosen one. somebody had to do it. >> has he looked to the sky? plus the white house pushing a new policy to end a court order that protects migrant children. why? and after supporting then caving and backing down and then turning back on background checks, trump now insists he hasn't change his position at all. where does he stand on the issue exactly? oh! oh! oh! ♪ ozempic®! ♪ (announcer) people with type 2 diabetes are excited about the potential of once-weekly ozempic®. in a study with ozempic®, a majority of adults lowered their blood sugar and reached an a1c

for our steak and unlimited shrimp. outback steakhouse >> new tonight "i" the chosen one. spoken by the the president of the united states as he defends his trade war with china amid growing fierce of looming discussion. >> somebody said it's trump's trade war. this is not my trade war. s in a trade war that should have taken place a long time ago by a lot of other presidents. "i" the chosen one. somebody had to do it i'm taking on china. >> that came just hours after he tweeted out a quote from a conservative radio host and known conspiracy theorist who said about trump in part, this is, quote the jewish people in israel love him like he is the king of israel. they love him like he is the second coming of god. outfront now cnn chief pligt political analyst and gloria borger and the author of making
4:18 pm
of donald trump david k. johnson. thanks. when trump calls himself the chosen one. he was talking about the trade war. why is that an issue of ego for him. >> well his calling card has always been, i am a great businessman. and i therefore can fix the problems in this country. and you'll recall, you know, even during his speech at the convention he said only i can fix it. when he was talking about the ills that playing the country, be it economic ills ob lobbying or et cetera, et cetera. trump sees himself as this kind of economic savior, and that he is the only guy who can go in a room and negotiate a deal and get it done, because he hasn't seen the difference between being somebody who is involved in real estate and can walk out of a real estate deal versus somebody who is actually running
4:19 pm
a country and cannot walk out of negotiations just when he wants to. >> he also said i'm the only one that can fix it when it came to draining the swamp, too just a note, david. >> exactly. >> david, you studied trump for years, also called him a world class narcissist was one of the quotes i've seen from you you. how does that play into everything we marry from the president today, from i'm the chosen one to the second coming of good to declaring the danish leader can't talk like that against the president of the united states? >> kate, donald really does believe that he is superior to the rest of us. he has himself talked about how the trumps believe they are genetically superior to the rest of us. notice how he calls everybody mo doesn't bow down to him, an idiot, a fool, they don't know what they're doing. you know, if donald were not the president, if he were someone you sat down next to in a bar or at dinner you had to go to or on
4:20 pm
an airplane, you would within a matter of minutes conclude from listening to the guy he is a blow hard who is crazy. but donald really does believe these things. and they're delusional and inindicative of the fact that our 45th president is mentally ill given how common mental illness is we shouldn't be surprised that at some pointive with a mentally ill president. that's what we have now. >> i also sit here and think what would people -- how would people react if president obama had been standing in the driveway and looked up appear said, i am the chosen one. i just would love to see the reaction then. but also on the obama front gloria, we noticed is something -- i don't know any other way to zrab it other than strange today during remarks to reporters. he couldn't stop talking about obama. just listen to this. >> we can't treat the united states of america the way any treated us under president obama. that was outstarting obama.
4:21 pm
so russia outsmarted president obama. it was president obama that built knows cages. so president obama in separation. i'm the one that brought them together. i'm not looking at a tax cut now we don't need it we have a strong economy. certainly a payroll tax cut -- president obama did that in order to artificially jack up the economy. president obama had zero interest rates. i don't have zero interest rates. i have real interest rates dpiet and see i have a strong economy. >> it was over -- that's not all of it. it was over and over again. why is he making this about obama. >> in case you didn't notice the president needs enemies in order to make a case about himself. and the enemy of the day today was barack obama as it is on many days. and of course he is never to blame for any problems or any mistakes. so if there are problems in the past with the economy, then you blame somebody else.
4:22 pm
i mean when you are president, the sign says the buck stops here. harry truman, the buck stop here's. with donald trump the buck stopped there. not with me. there. and fl of course is barack obama. tomorrow it will be hillary clinton and hillary clinton's emails and maybe the day after that joe biden who of course worked with barack obama. so biden is the nominee you can expect to hear more of that. >> it was a strange one today. david, let me play also what the president said when asked about his visits to dayton and el paso after the mass shooting. >> these people, the families and also the people that were so badly injured i was with, they -- they love our country. and frankly, you want to know the truth, they love their president. if you read the papers it was like nobody would meet with me. not only did they meet with me, they were pouring out of the
4:23 pm
rooms. the doctors were coming out of the operating rooms. there were hundreds and hundreds of people all over the floor. you couldn't even walk on it. >> the hospital in el paso said on the record that victims the shooting did not want to meet with him, david. what -- i'm left today after watching this, what would have to happen for the president to finally stop complaining he isn't getting enough praise? >> it's never going to stop. donald is an empty vessel who because of the way he was brought up, you know his father never told him he loved him. his mother was depressed when he was a preschooler. he is never going to change. the man is 73 years old. he is cooked. and it's very sad. i mean, donald trump is a man who has never known joy. you can't find a video of him anywhere in my personal dealings i've never seen him laugh except for forced laughter. he is an empty vessel inside. and keeps trying to fill the emptiness. and he can't. and unlike a president who would
4:24 pm
have empathy for the victims, the survivors or the family members who are survivors, to a donald trump it's about him. it's not about you or me, or somebody whose mother was massacred. it's about him. >> yeah and it's about adooration. even if you are going to console the inconsolable who have been through such a tragedy, he has to derive some kind of admiration for himself out of it. and, you know, i'm not a shrink, and i fwre with what david is saying. but i have no degree to say it. but i do believe that part of the reason he -- you know, the re-election matters so much to him, is because that affirmation and that adoration comes with miss base and people who go to the rallies appear support him and whom he hopes will bring him a second term. and that will bring him the
4:25 pm
affirmation that he really needs. >> and still probably not enough joy. guys, thank you very much. really appreciate it strange day outfront next kamala harris tearing into the president, suggesting he read the constitution after this. >> you walk over the border have a baby, congratulations, the baby is now a u.s. citizen. we're looking at it very, very seriously. >> plus president trump's leveling a new threat at america's allies take back the ice i fighters or he will release them.
4:26 pm

[ sigh ] introducing an easier way to move with xfinity. it's just another way we're working to make your life simple, easy, awesome. go to xfinity.com/moving to get started. tonight the trump administration pushing now to hold migrant families indefinitely. the administration wants to eliminate the 20-day cap on how long it can detain migrant children, part of a court order from the '90s, as they would wait for cases to be decided. the acting head of d.h.s. says the policy is designed to deter illegal immigration. president trump says they want to keep families together. >> very much i have the children on my mind. it bothers me very greatly. i'm the one that kept families
4:30 pm
together. what we are doing now we'll do more of that but it will make it almost impossible for people to come into the country illegally. >> outfront now maria cardin o democratic strategist and scott jennings. thanks for being here. maria what's your reaction to the new policy and the president saying he is doing it with the children in mind. >> that is so laughable that the president would say that when he is the one -- his administration was the one who made an official policy pronouncement that they would separate children and families that they would rip kids from the boss oms from mothers to keep them from coming here. it was a huge disaster, a political disaster for the president and his part. they had to say they weren't doing that anymore when they are still doing it. there are instances it's still happening. for him to say he is the one keeping kids together is
4:31 pm
laughable. it's not a deterrent as we have seen. and it's something that is going to make these migrant children continue to suffer. it's going to have lifelong consequences and if certainly does not promote or is not in line with the image that we want to project as americans. >> scott, what do you -- what do you think about this? >> i think the rule is imminently defensible aflt challenged in court. so we're some months away from knowing whether it's taking effect. the flores rule has been exploited by people over the years. it's been exploited by people engaged in human trafficking. you know you show up with kids. you get detained and after 20 days we have to release you into the interior of the united states. some of the people engaged in human trafficking were exploiting that by closing this loophole we are allowing families to stay together and we are immediately putting in -- putting them in the u.s. judicial process so the case can be jude indicated. giving them a minimum standard
4:32 pm
of living. put in facilities where there is bedding, food, clothes, recreation, education. to me the most important thing i heard from the administration today is these dsh dhsh rule will not permit the separation of the families. they cross the border illegally as a family unit. and so they'll be put as a family unit in a u.s. holding facility while their case is jude indicated. i think that's -- i think that's a step in the right direction. and we're shutting down i think hopefully the human traffickers who are exploiting the laws. >> maria. >> kate, my friend -- my friend scott needs to be corrected on a couple of republican talking points that he is using which are untrue. the first one is they focus on the issue of human trafficking. sure there are human traffickers. and that should be the priority for in administration to fight. the fact of the matter is that the percentage of human traffickers who come over pretending that they have kids in hand in order to exploit the loophole is infinityis mal. the vast majority of families coming over with kids are
4:33 pm
families coming with children who are fleeing violence and in many cases certain death for their keds kids if they don't come here. number one. number two, if my friend scott is someone who can have confidence in in administration, that they will be taking care of the children in a way that children should be taken care of, i welcome him to take his own kids there and let them stay for a week. we no he that he won't do that. i wouldn't let him do thap bus what have we seen, kate, seven children have died in custody of i.c.e. very recently this past year. and in fact what we have seen from civil rights organizations who have seen these facilities and from people who have talked to the families like me, i have been to the border, talked to the families, i saw this child with my own eyes, kate whose diaper had not been changed in three days when this they came the out of i.c.e. custody. that's not a system that i would in -- there is no way in hell i would put my own children there and no way in hell i would say
4:34 pm
we should leave migrant children in that custody and in those conditions. >> i want to move on but scott got to respond. >> absolutely. number one, i think people with legitimate asylum claims are going to be immediately put into the u.s. system to joud kait their claims. and if they have as mar where a pointed legitimate asylum claims fleeing places silent that is heard in a court immediately. number two. >> asylum claims. >> there are massive huchl trafficking problems i'm not willing -- i'm not willing to accept any human trafficking problems. i'm not willing to accept any of the children being exploited by human traffickers. but the final issue is this. after 20 days under the current system we have to release the people into the united states illegally and hope they show up for court. that is not an acceptable position for most americans. they want to see the people jude indicated and fairly and treated well. but releasing them into the country is essential decriminalizing border crossings. and saying we don't have borders
4:35 pm
effectively. that's not acceptable to the american people. >> that's not true. you know why. >> that is true. they have to release them after to days. >> daus because the court deemed it was unacceptable to keep the child in a facility that long. >> that's right. >> i'm sorry, kate. >> the vast majority of families do show up. >> the -- because a court ordered after a very stents of lawsuit that took years they decided that over 20 days was an unacceptable period of time to have a child remain in that kind of custody. that's why. >> well it's in the united states best interests to jude kait the people immediately. there is no incentive for the u.s. government to let it go on indefinitely. >> they should but it doesn't happen. >> with the new rule it will under the new rule i imagine. >> well a lot more to be cussed here guys thank you very much. >> way too much confidence there scott. thank you. >> outfront for us next, president trump can't seem to get his position straight on background checks.
4:36 pm
listen. >> no, i didn't say anything about that. >> and bill de blasio running for president or auditioning? >> thank you for the fight you are waging every day. back then, we checked our smartphones ...zero times a day. times change. eyes haven't. that's why there's ocuvite. screen light... sunlight... longer hours... eyes today are stressed! but ocuvite has vital nutrients... ...that help protect them. ocuvite. eye nutrition for today.

4:38 pm
4:39 pm
ton, more whiplash from the president on guns. president trump saying today he has a quote unquote appetite for
4:40 pm
background checks, denying reports he took universal background checks off the table in a lengthy call with the head of the nra yesterday. >> mr. president did you say you would not do background checks. >> i didn't say anything about that. we had a great talk with wayne yesterday. didn't say anything about that. we talked about concepts. wayne agrees things have to be done also. >> outfront now, dynamicic presidential candidate and senator from new york kirstin gillibrand. thank you for being here, senator. >> my pleasure. >> what do you make of the president -- the only best way to say is really being all over the ma on the issue of background checks. do you think that's intentional? >> i think he is beholden to the nra and doesn't have the guts to stand up to the nra. we have a real problem in washington with the greed and corruption that's at the heart of why it's so hard to get common sense things done. and it's why as a presidential candidate i run on publicly funded elections getting money out of politics making sure we
4:41 pm
have clean elections to deal with actual public corruption. i think president trump's beholden to wayne lapierre and the gun manufacturers. and he doesn't have the courage to stand up to them. >> if universal background checks are off the table, but the president still has an appetite for something stronger on background checks, do you think he is serious? do you think there is something in between? i don't think he is serious. i think he is going to do whatever the nra tells him to do. any don't want universal background checks. they don't even want to deny people on the terror watch list the ability to buy guns. they are against the violence against women's act because they want to make sure abusers can buy guns. we need to close the boyfriend loophole. need universal background checks. we need to ban military style weapons and large magazines as well as a federal anti-gun trafficking law. the bottom line is we shouldn't
4:42 pm
be willing to live in a country where kids can't do back to school shopping in a wal-mart. we shouldn't be willing to live in a country where our kids learn shelter in place drills instead of mathematical drills. and it's not okay. we need a president with the courage and guts to stand up to the nra. and i do. >> i want to ask you about what your positions and what you support when it comes to gun safety. you support a federal assault weapon weapons buyback program. the president today warned that policy is a slippery slope. the way he put it to reporters today is all of a sudden we're talking about taking everybody's guns away. is that what you want to do? >> no, he is full of it. and he is just spewing nra talking points. it's not a slippery slope. we want to ban assault rifles and large magazine clips. we want to ban the types of weapons that our military is trained in to use as a weapon of war. and because president trump who has fueled this hate and
4:43 pm
