. the s&p 500 up almost 12% since the election. that is just behind george h.w. bush in 1989, but president kennedy saw an 18% surge in 1961. but even trump's promises to american businesses have helped the recent spike. remember the u.s. is in the second largest bull market of all time, that was well under way before trump even said he was going to run for the presidency. the trump bump is at the very end, i don't know if you can show that, we have a great screen, the trump bump at the end of the obama bull market. darn. we have a really nice screen that shows just how big this rally is and the trump up there. >>> "early start" continues right now. > >>> most direct warning to date about north korea, in the same interview where he revealed being president is more work than he expected. >>> and a new investigation in to michael flynn's accepting payments from russia and turkey when it comes to his security clearance, why is the white house shifting blame to the obama administration? welcome to "early start." it is friday, april 28, day 99 of the trump administration and it is the
against terror under george bush and we have a war on immigration with this president. it's been a consistent part of his policy. he doesn't hide it. this is how he started his campaign, and he is making many efforts to curb the number of immigrants in this country, legal and illegal. and so, i think this becomes part of that pattern and that agenda. >> all right, of course, the huge story that unfolds one day at a time is the sexual harassment scandal in seemingly all walks of life. yesterday, glenn thrush of "the new york times" suspended, charlie rose of cbs suspended. and the story with roy moore continues to -- we continue to learn more, because his accuser, leigh corfman, spoke out to the "today" show about what happened. here's what she said. >> he basically laid out some blankets on the floor of his living room and proceeded to seduce me, i guess you would say. and during the course of that, he removed my clothing. he left the room and came back in wearing his white underwear. >> roy moore denies these allegations and further says he does not even know you. >> i wonder how
evidence and then he starts to remember meetings, specifically the one with george papadopoulos, you know, who was the person who pled guilty after dealing with robert mueller. so jeff session's story has essentially changed on russian involvement with the campaign several times now. his meetings with russians on the periphery of the campaign, his meeting with george papadopoulos, so it continues to evolve, i think, is where we're at with jeff sessions right now. >> greg? >> i think there's another angle to his testimony. he showed no enthusiasm for another special prosecutor to go after hillary clinton. i think that didn't go over well at the white house. and they hastened session's departure to run as a write-in candidate in alabama. >> so much going on. zach and greg, nice to see you both bright and early for us. thanks, guys. >> you bet. >>> ahead, one of the world's longest serving strong men losing his grip on power? turmoil escalating overnight in zimbabwe with an apparent coup in the mix. we're live in africa next. ♪ ix included. that's huge. that's right. t-mobile's got your ne

from the george w. bush former ethics attorney richard painter. misleading the senate in sworn testimony about one own contacts with the russians is a good way to go to jail. that's certainly putting it out there. >> throose are fighting words. i have to imagine a lot of folks on the hill, mostly democrats, who feel if this had been hillary clinton or another democrat, we would already have oversight investigations starting. you hear that. you hear why are we not treating this the same way we treated other sort of mounting questions even if there is no silver bullet of wrongdoing? like i said, a lot of smoke here. you have folks asking those questions. the difference, of course, you have same party control. same party in the white house is controlling congress. a lot less incentive to conduct the investigations. when you have republicans saying time is come for recusiae or independent investigation. >> a lot of smoke. richard painter will be on "new day" later this morning. another guy we can't wait to hear from is darrell issa. he suggested an independent investigation. >> and
narrative that the united states is trying to destroy it. >> george bush had his access of evil but that's a far cry from threatening to destroy another nation. you know, rip them off the globe essentially is what he did. so the rhetorical shift i think with this new president might have been expected from some of the things he said on the campaign trail but it was still a stark thing to see him take it into this body of a gathering of nations from around the world. >> david surprisingly wrote, the most surprising thing about president trump's address was how conventional it was which was an interesting take on the bombastic nature of it all. it sounds like the president wants to pull out on the iran deal. where are we headed? >> he all but said he would do it, suggested it, i think. that doesn't mean that he will. his administration has been certifying iran, you know, leading up to now, but it could change things a lot, i think not only from the perspective of how the u.s. is dealing with iran and whether they're pursuing nuclear weapons but as you said earlier, how the rest of the
