10:00 pm
and you carry that forward. >> this is "cnn newsroom" live from los angeles. ahead at this hour, from around the world to inside the republican party, growing outrage of donald trump's plan to ban muslims from entering the united states. and still the republican front-runner is not backing down. also ahead, cnn takes you to pakistan to trace the woman responsible for the deadly shooting rampage in california. and activists in chicago fight to get a video released that they say shows the shooting and killing of an unarmed african-american teenager. hello, everybody. great to have you with us. we would like to welcome our
10:01 pm
viewers in the u.s. and around the world. "newsroom l.a." starts right now. >> u.s. presidential candidate donald trump is not giving any ground on his proposal to ban muslims from entering the united states. hids suggestion has been met with nearly universal condemnation. but as dana bash reports, the republican front-runner just keeps piling on. >> this isn't about being political correct. >> you could have many more world trade certains if you don't solve it. >> never mind backing down, donald trump is doubling down on a plan to block muslims from entering america. >> a total and complete shutdown. >> even in the face of unpress debited fury within his own party. >> from the republican house speaker. >> normally i do not comment on what's going on in the presidential election. i will take an exception today.
10:02 pm
this is not conservatisconserva. >> to the republican senate leader. >> this suggestion is completely and totally inconsistent with american values. >> to former vice president dick cheney, revered by conservatives for pushing tough tactics to keep americans safe after 9/11. >> this whole notion that somehow we can just say no more muslims, just ban a whole religion goes against everything we stand for and believe in. >> voters in today's new hampshire poll say trump is the best candidate to take on isis. just like monday's cnn orc poll in iowa. on cnn's "new day" he was eager to defend his ban. >> i'm talking about a temporary situation until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on. >> even republican party chair reinge priebus who tries to stay out of the presidential republican fight weighed in saying i don't agree. we need to aggressively take on radical islamic terrorism, but not at the expense of our
10:03 pm
american values. that, months after priebus convinced all of trump's competitors to pledge to support him if he's the nominee, making it awkward as they slam him now. >> it's not about the blow hards out there just saying stuff. that's not a program. that's not a plan. this is this is serious business. >> donald trump always plays on everyone's worst instincts and fears. >> you know how you make america great again? tell donald trump to go to hell. >> trump is making noises again about a gop nightmare scenario, an independent trump candidacy. he tweeted if he launched a third party bid, the vast majority of his supporters would back him and not the gop nominee. dana bash, cnn, washington. >> in the past, whenever donald trump would make an outlandish statements, his rivals would avoid a confrontation, but not this time. even though, mr. trump spent most of tuesday seemingly
10:04 pm
unmoved by the firestorm of criticism he started. jeffrey lord is a cnn political commentator, a trump supporter and the former political director of the reagan administration. he joins us now from harrisburg, pennsylvania. thank you for being with us. now on monday, trump's campaign said that the ban would apply to american citizens, muslims who were abroad. tuesday, he suggested there may be a citizenship exception. also on tuesday, he told abc the ban would be very short. listen to this. >> what is short term? >> it could be very quickly if our country could get its act together. we don't know what's happening. we have a president that doesn't have a clue. he don't know what's happening. we need toughness and smartness and we have to do it quickly. >> is mr. trump now trying to walk this back? or is this an indication that the policy or the plan wasn't particularly well thought out to begin with? >> i don't think it's either. i think he said right from the beginning this would be something temporary until we
10:05 pm
could get our act together. there. >>'s just no question we a problem here. we have 14 people dead in san bernadino. whatever we're doing right now is not working and i think the american people are acutely aware of this and they're concerned about it. >> there's such wide condemnation, though, and it's coming from the republican party. conservative commentator brian katz said mr. trump's remark shows he doesn't want to take other the republican party, he wants to burn it to the ground from the inside. >> there's this incredible chasm between the base of the republican party and the leadership, which has been there for quite some time. and their response in this kind of thing to in essence say that all donald trump's supporters are nothing but a bunch of racist, xenophobic racists is a terrible thing to say. it's politically stupid and it's also untrue. >> but since launching his campaign, mr. trump has offended not only muslims, the disabled,
10:06 pm
mexic mexicans, jew, seventh day an adventists, asians, women, p.o.w.s. >> what you're talking about, john, is political correctness. this has gotten way out of control in this country. this is now dangerous. this is now dangerous. when you look at the situation with the ft. hood shooter, and again, this is something i went back and looked at. there were people in the military who said they tried to flag this, but they were rejected because of political correctness. they just didn't want to say anything about major nadal and his attraction to islamic radicalism because somehow it wasn't politically correct. we wound up with of 13 people dead on a military base in texas. this is very, very dangerous. >> they thought something was up, they didn't want to say anything. surely there's a middle ground between banning all muslims from the united states and getting people to speak up. >> well, sure.
10:07 pm
i think the thing that i just find bizarre, the notion that donald trump is anti-muslim. he's not anti-muslim. he is anti-islamic radicalism. i mean, i don't know what's going on where you are, but here in pennsylvania, i'm seeing campaign commercials all the time for jeb bush in which he says the plob is radical iz -- problem is radical islam. well, y yes, that's it exactly. that's what most republican candidates are saying. >> it sounds to people that it's not the problem with radical islam. at least according to donald trump. it's the pro-b with every muslim because every muslim is going to be banned. >> 100%, myself included, are the descendant of people who came here who immigrated here. we are all descendants of immigrants. donald trump is married to an immigrant. he's the son and grandson of immigrants. he's not opposed to immigration.
10:08 pm
he's not opposed to muslims. he's opposed to radical islam. we have a problem, he's put it on the table where no one else wanted to really deal with it and no uh we're having a discussion. that's a very good thing. >> jeffrey, we are certainly having that discussion. thank you for being here. >> thank you, b john. i appreciate it. >> kritdices say donald trump is simply playing to americans' fears and the country is at risk from all sorts of outsiders. >> something bad is happening. something bad is happening and we can't be the stupid ones. >> it's an alarmist tone embedded in nearly every donald trump speech. >> something really dangerous is going on. >> while his slogan is -- >> make america great again. >> reporter: the sub text seems to be americans are not safe right now. >> on the campaign trail and in interview, trump punches up the
10:09 pm
drama. >> it sounds cold and it sounds hard. we have a country. our country is going to hel will. >> shocking declarations and dark imagery. >> we isis and others who want to blow up our country. >> sounding alarms to turn the fear in americans' minds right now into something more imminent and even more only mouse. >> we have people out there that want to do great destruction to our country. whether it's 25% or 10% or 5%, it's too much. they want our buildings to come down. they want our cities to be crushed. they are living within our country. >> it's a strategy that trump has relied on since the day he announced his campaign, warning about undocumented mexican immigrants. >> they're bringing those problems with us. they're bringing drugs. they're bringing crime. they're rapists. >> on syrian refugees, concerns that terrorists might seek settlement in the u.s. >> then i said to myself, wow, they're all men!
10:10 pm
you look at it, there are so few women. and there are so few children. and not only are they men, they're young men. and they're strong as can be. they're tough looking cookies. >> now trump calling for a complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states. >> the whole thing with, we have to stop the muslims until we find out what's going upon does that make sense, by the way? >> to be sure, fear and uncertainty are big factors with terrorism and national security 207 concerns for voters. dire warnings plus his trademark tough talk -- >> we're going to be so vigilant. we're going to be so careful and so tough and so mean and so nasty. >> it may be falling on receptive ears. >> every time there's a tragedy, my numbers go way up.
10:11 pm
we have weak, sad politicians. >> reporter: and that may be one of the biggest reasons why we've seen this sort of rhetoric from donald trump. it seems to be working among voters, lal playing to the uncertainty and the fear that is especially on voters' minds right now in the wake of the paris and san bernadino attacks. cnn, washington. '. >> we're joined now by an islamic chaplain and educator. he lectures to muslims and nonmuslims about islam. i want to share with you a tweet from the u.s. editor for the israeli newspaper. and he tweeted this out, isis dreams of an islam-hating america that isolates its own muslims. trump is busy making their dreams come true. is he right? he's absolutely right. one of the things we need to be very careful about is lumping
10:12 pm
groups together. and excluding muslims from the group who's fighting against those who seek harm to humanity. one of the things as well that's quite divisive, the comments by trump seem to quote muslims all as one group, one conglomerate, why we have different cull churs and a variety. it shows a lack of sophistication what the world is all about enit seems to indicate that he's really out of touch with the rest of what's happening in the world. he doesn't really understand that a muslim in turkey does not necessarily have to be the same in nigeria in how they express their attributes of islam. and some of the values that we share as human beings are intrinsic to all of us, not just particular segments of us. so it's not just about muslim or not. >> donald trump is not an elected official, not the
10:13 pm
republican dom knee for president. his proposal to ban muslims from the u.s. is not u.s. policy. it's never been u.s. policy. why are his words carrying so much weight right now all around the world? >> i don't think it's carrying wait in people agreeing with him. one of the most telling signs, if you do a quick search, people are returning to him as a fascist, unhinged. people are asking who said this, was it donald trump or adolf hitler? you know, that's not the kind of frame work that you want. and the white house was quite, you know, quite quick in condemnation and actually asking, should he even be qualified for standing for a nomination to represent the country that the world sees as a leader for the great part of the last century. >> i didn't mean people were agreeing him, but his words have so much outrage. this is a man yet to past the first test to get to the white house.
10:14 pm
he's yet to get the nomination for the republican party. >> look, definitely anything that is over the top defiant, seeping to spread people apart, seeking to find that little tear in the fabric of society and rip it apart resonates with certain circles of people. and, of course, the media does latch on to that. and it's one of the reasons that, you know, you give myself and other commentators a platform to discus it. but most people abhor that kind of commentary. decent americans do not see another fellow american as a traitor. does not see someone who wants to visit their country, whether for tourism or business as a traitor. in fact, what we might want to be asking is what do you say about a person who then goes to people if he wants to invest in their countries? certainly you would want to suspend your investments and states in the middle east if you're so distrusting of them. how would it be so acceptable to
10:15 pm
profit from such source where is you can't allow people access into your own country. further, i think it's really, really deplorable that a person who has hallmarks in capitalism has sunk to such a low. that is, you know, alienated one of the greatest markets that he probably seeks to turn to. >> he's not thinking about business right now. i guess he's talking politics. but it does seem that mr. trump has tapped into a real feeling of fear and anxiety here in the united states. many americans are simply terrified of another terrorist attack. can you understand that fear, however misdirected it may be? >> absolutely. and this is east-west highway myself and many other of my colleagues, americans and canadians and all around the western world, all around the eastern world, it is -- we see it as a religious obligation to be that thin line between those
10:16 pm
who seek all of us harm, not justice nonmuslims harm. we must understand that those who have been harmed by the criminality and the bar barety are those who experienced it firsthand were muslims initially and intrinsically. and we need to also step back a little further and understand, you know, certain disastrous foreign policy initiatives that were built on absolute lies that would later come out, you know, such as the iraq war and things like that, were the primary catalyst for putting us in the position that we ear in today. so it's important for us to look at things from a holistic perspective and not just see to score points with the vast, vast minority of american and good citizens of the united states of america. it's important to bring people together, to bridge the gaps are far, farless than what holds us together. one of the most important
10:17 pm
institutions that institutions that radicalizes and is a proven paper after paper and research after research is religiousness and attendance to mosques and people knowing, you know, their faith and structures and having a qualified leader in faith lead them through text that can be manipulated by those who seek harm. >> we're out of time, but thank you for your thoughts and insights into this issue. thanks for being with us. >> it's my pleasure, thank you. >> still to come here on "newsroom l.a." how trump's insults have worked for him. and has worked against him in the polls. plus, more revelations about the killers in that california massacre.

. >> wl come back. investigators now believe a couple accused of a shooting in
10:22 pm
san bernadino were radicalized years ago. >> reporter: the path to radicalization for this california couple began long before they committed mass murder in san bernadino, according to the fbi. in fact, there's indications their transportation into jihadis began even before isis emerged on the world stage in june 2014, making it difficult to determine exactly who inspired them and who might have helped them. >> had this couple started this attack, a year ago, but they might have glomed on to another organization. but it happened to be that isis is the biggest, baddest organization on the block and they carried the out in their name. whether they were part of that, it's unclear. >> reporter: a law enforcement official tells cnn fa ruk had explored reaching out to al qaeda affiliate. a facebook post on an account so he shoulded with farook's wife pledged allegiance to isis and used the word we, indicating the
10:23 pm
message represented both attackers. just days before they killed 14 people, farook went to this firing range in river side, california. a firearms instructor said farook brought his own ar-15 assault weapon to practice. >> you can't tell who comes to the range. he presented a valid -- or what appeared to be a valid id. came in and acted the way he normally does, the way normal people act. >> the fbi is also looking into enrique marquez. the investigators say the two assault rifles the couple used to the attack traced back to marquez. he has not been charged with any crime. >> right now, our major concern, the fbi, atf and jttf are determining how those firearm, the rifles in particular got from marquez to farook and malik.
10:24 pm
>> two u.s. officials said malik seemed proficient with the ar-15 she used during the massacre. the couple's family maintains they had no idea that they had been jihadis, even though farook's mother lived with them in the house. >> syed and tashfeen were isolated and the family was completely surprised and de stated, but no one had any knowledge. if anybody would have, they definitely would have done something to stop it. >> pam ma brown, cnn, washington. >> those who knew tashfeen malik at university in pakistan said she seemed to be an engaging student. >> a women's institute that teaches their own conservative and ultra orthodox version of islam. the san bernadino shooting suspect tafsheen malik studied
10:25 pm
here. >> she was leading the koran. she. >> she didn't complete her course. in april last year, she announced she had to leave as she would be getting married in two months time. teachers here inside that i had spoken to weren't willing to appear on camera, but they have given cnn a statement, describing tafsheen has a hardworking, helpful, obedient and positive-minded student. they said that no one here could ever have imagined that she could be behind what they described as a horrible act that's 100% against islamic teachings and the teachings of the institutes. she never raised any suspicions that she might be -- >> no, no. >> you didn't see any idea that she was developing an extremist
10:26 pm
mindset? >> no one even think about that she could do such a heinous thing. >> but critics and former students of the institute say the ultraconservative values at the university of have an isolationist viewpoint. could this be the steppingstone of radicalization? >> what they're learning in this class is that there's one correct interpretation of islam. nowhere in the christmas lum is there anything which condones militancy. >> the school itself has cond n condemned the attack and says it can't be held responsible for a student's act as an individual. >> this is not allowed in islam.
10:27 pm
>> the teachings at the school don't seem to be enough to explain the radical sais. this is just one piece of a very complicated jigsaw puzzle. next, donald trump and and how his comments seem to defy political wisdom. phil! oh no...

iraq says it now controls 60% of ramadi. the terrorist group took over in may. iraqi forces say they've attacked isis from three slides over a 24-hour period with a help of u.s.-led air strikes. investigators say one of the killers in the california massacre may have been plotting an earlier attack with a different accomplice. officials say he conspired to attack a different target but abandoned the plan after police made other terror-related arrests in the area. and donald trump is warning there will be more terror attacks in the united states if his ban on muslim immigration is not put into place. widespread condemnation on the

tv-commercial
10:33 pm
what this country stands for. >> trump says his ban on muslims would be temporary. he called it a modern day version of fdr's actions towards the japanese in world war ii. he announced his proposal last night to allow cheers on the deck of the uss yorktown, a battleship from that war. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on. >> his comments drew instant fire from gop rivals. >> he's race baiting, xenophobic religious big got. he doesn't represent my party. he doesn't represent the values that the men and women who wear the uniform are fighting for. >> what we shouldn't do is just to, you know, say all muslims aren't come into this kilometres per hour country. it's not about the blow hards out there just saying stuff. that's not a program. that's not a plan. this is serious business.
10:34 pm
>> to say we ban all legends goes against everything we stand for and believe in. >> what donald trump said yesterday disqualifies him as serving as president. >> his supporters are tired of political correctness. >> and got standing occasions as soon as this was mentioned. >> there were stand og cases monday night in south carolina. i was in the crowd and talked to many voters. some said they didn't know the full extent of trump's's proposals and philanthropist bristled a's his ideas, but others said something must be done and support his plan. they're frightened and angry that the current administration isn't doing enough. there's little reason to believe this will hurt trump in the republican primary. so far nothing he's said has.
10:35 pm
jeff zeleny, cnn, washington. >> trump said every time there's a tragedy, his numbers go up. joining sus a political scientist professor at ucla. we've been talking about this for the last couple days. all the republican candidates are trying to distance themselves from donald trump. yet they say they'll support him as president if he makes it that far. what's going on? >> they're in a tough spot. i think if we listen very carefully, they first try to resist those questions. oh, he's not going to be the nominee. they try to distance themselves from the question. and then good reporters like you won't let them distance themselves too much and ultimately they say i'll support whoever the party nominates. they have to be party players. and yet they need to differentiate themselves from obama and from trump. they're in a tough spot. >> he has such die hard supporters. if they say they won't support trump, does that effectively hand the election to the
10:36 pm
democrats in some ways? >> i don't think that alone will be pivotal. i think it may feel like that if uh you're alone with one of these candidates. but certainly other things are going to come along that will play more of a role than just that moment than saying you would not support trump if you were the nominee. >> the first caucuses and the first primaries are 60 days away now. just purely by the way the system is set up, is there a certain momentum that trump has. when people start votes, he's going to walk away with some delegates here? >> he may. >> i think that you're right to prepare people for that and that may be coming. but more importantly, the thing to watch is going to be who among those party regulars, nonoutsiders is coming in maybe second or third, maybe even fourth. >> as the alternative. >> if that person has money and
10:37 pm
they can sustain their campaign while trump picks up some del grats, then we're going to have a real fight on our hands. >> very quickly, has there been anything like this in modern american politics? people saying it's like the former george wallace, the alabama governor who run for president in the '60s and '70s. >> george wallace said if alabama wants segregation, it will have segregation. very much a delegate of the people. their agent. and trump is seeing himself in the same way, where you might say some of these other candidates, bush, kasich, they see themselves more as a trustee of what's best for the party and the nation. there there's a real divide there. yes, i would say in the populous rhetoric, trump is a lot like a george wallace. >> the party of lincoln, huh.
10:38 pm
cnn r andi kaye takes a closer look. >> reporter: when donald trump announced for president, he made it memorable. remember this comment about mexican immigrants? >> they're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. they're rapist, and some, i assume, are good people. >> the blowback was fear% sop in the latino community calling him a racist. major corporations breaking ties with him. political insiders saying he was a doomed candidate. but they were wrong. trump jumped seven points to second place in a fox news poll. the first news poll done completely after his presidential announcement. and it quickly became clear he was just getting started. in july, he said this about senator john mccain, a former p.o.w. >> he's not a war hero. >> he's a war hero. >> he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people that weren't captured, okay? i hate to tell you. he's a war hero because he was captured. >> reporter: again the blowback
10:39 pm
was intense and trump did take a hit in the polls. dropping six points from an abc/washington post poll to 18% support in a cnn/orc poll. but still he held on to the top spot and his numbers quickly rebounded. the next month, trump had women up in arms with this bizarre comment about fox debate commentator megyn kelly. >> she started asking me ridiculous question. you could see there was blood coming oit of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever. >> trump denied he was referring to menstruation. potential voters must have believed him because he held steady with a quarter of gop voter, before and after the remarks according to fox news polls. in september, mr. trump made disparaging skments about carly fiorina, telling "rolling stone" magazine look at that face. would anyone vote for that? can you imagine that, the face of our next president?
10:40 pm
a cbs/new york times poll showed he dropped six points after that, but was still in the lead. while we don't know yet how donald trump's call to ban muslims from entering the u.s. will play out, we do know what happened after the paris attacks when trump told msnbc he would strongly consider shutting down u.s. mosques. >> some of the hatred, the absolute hatred is coming from these areas. the hatred is better than anybody understands. >> he escaped again and jumping in the poms be i four points according to a fox news poll, and eight points in an abc/washington post poll. radi kaye, cnn, new york. >> still to come, officials trying to keep republicans from seeing a video of another fatal police shooting.
