tv   Erin Burnett Out Front  CNN  February 19, 2016 4:00pm-5:01pm PST

4:00 pm
biden has a close relationship with the scalia family. there'll be other dignitaries there including the attorney general loretta lynch and following that will be the private burial. >> that's all the time we have right now. "erin burnett outfront" starts right now. outfront next, the final countdown. two major states voting tomorrow. this is donald trump giving up a fight with the pope and takes on apple instead. and the democrats get nasty in nevada. clinton booed for slamming sanders. sanders says clinton is cozying up to president obama only for the black vote. was donald trump for the iraq war before he was against it? let's go "outfront." good evening. i'm jim sciutto in tonight for erin burnett. outfront tonight, a fight to the finish. we are less than 12 hours away
4:01 pm
from the polls opening in south carolina and the stakes couldn't be higher. for many of the candidates, this state is make or break territory. and if trump wins, history is on his side. every republican candidate who has won both new hampshire and south carolina has gone on to win the nomination. the gop candidates are crisscrossing the palmetto state to make their pitches to voters. all the candidates are on the attack. >> i've watched my brother do something extraordinary, which was to lead us through a difficult time and yes, mr. trump, he did keep us safe after 9/11. you're just dead wrong. >> if the republican party had any guts, they would have terminated cruz from that election because he cheated like a dog. he holds up the bible and then he cheats. >> it's easy to say let's make america great again. you can even print that on a
4:02 pm
baseball cap, but the question to ask is do you understand what made america great in the first place. >> and tonight donald trump is going after a new target, apple, calling on his supporters to boycott the company until it complies with a court order to unlock the iphone of one of the san bernardino shooters. right now, you're looking at live pictures of a donald trump rally in north charleston. it is his last campaign event before voters go to the polls. sara murray is with the trump campaign. you look at the polls. it's a big lead for donald trump. do they feel like they've got this one in the bag? >> well, jim, i think they are feeling confident. look, it is donald trump's tough talk and brash style that took him to the top of the gop field and he is sticking with that strategy tonight not only taking on his gop rivals, but also taking one of the country's leading tech companies. after a blistering week in the palmetto state --
4:03 pm
>> ted cruz is the biggest liar i've ever seen. >> reporter: donald trump is using the final hours to go for the jugular. >> i'll tell you what was good. even marco rubio said he's a liar. when a politician says another politician is a liar, i felt so good. >> here in south carolina these next 21 hours are going to decide a great deal. >> reporter: cruz trying to gain an trump and fend off marco rubio as he cast the florida senator as a shape shifter on immigration. >> marco rubio burned us once. he shouldn't get the chance to sell us out again. >> reporter: others are looking to land their closing arguments with a softer touch. both john kasich and jeb bush fighting to ensure their campaigns survive beyond south carolina. >> well, people thought we would get maybe two or three votes. i think we're going to do better than that. >> jeb has been a great son,
4:04 pm
great father, great husband, married well, and is one of my four favorite sons. [ laughter ] >> reporter: meanwhile, there's no sign that trump plans to water down his bombastic style. tonight trump is calling for a boycott on apple products until the tech company agrees to unlock an iphone that belonged to one of the san bernardino killers. >> apple ought to give the security for that phone. what i think you ought to do is boycott apple until such time as they give that security number. how do you like that? i just thought of it. boycott apple. >> reporter: now trump doubled down on that apple boycott as soon as he took the stage here in north charleston, but you heard him say earlier that it was a sort of hastily called boycott. a number of his volunteers are still using ipads to sell donald
4:05 pm
trump merchandise here at this event. >> a good spot of iphones and ipads still out in force. pastor mark burns is supporting donald trump for president and cnn political commentator and the host of the ben ferguson show, ben geferguson. yesterday it was the pope. now it's apple. is that a smart fight for donald trump to pick today, particularly before south carolina? >> it's a populist move. it's a very smart move to say apple should look into the cell phone of a terrorist. it's pretty obvious donald trump has not looked into the details. he has his own staff using iphones, tweeting from iphones, selling products on an iphone. he loves to talk about honesty. he loves to talk about other people being liars. he loves to talk about ted cruz being dishonest. how dishonest is it for a candidate to say boycott apple
4:06 pm
when all of his employees are using apple products on the campaign trail using that exact technology? if ted cruz was doing it, he'd be saying he was a hypocrite and a liar tonight. supporters are going to say it's the idea that matters more than the reality. it's kind of do what i say, not what i do, yet again from donald trump. >> i have to give you a chance to respond to that. you're a supporter of donald trump. fair criticism? >> you know, i love ben and i love his commentary. donald trump is making sure that america is safe and that's his strong stance and i'm going to stand behind him. the whole purpose of this is donald trump is running on the campaign that we have a weak government with a weak military. the borders are weak. he's saying i'll take on one of the largest american companies head on because i'm not one of
4:07 pm
the politicians that says one thing and do another, but i'm going to make sure america is safe again. i'm going to make sure apple does what it is supposed to do so we can eliminate terrorism in america. >> pastor, with all due respect -- >> i want to talk about the other battle and that being with pope francis. we noticed the pope said he was not singling out donald trump specifically. he was not attacking him personally here. i wonder if you accept that word from the pope, particularly after the criticism where he said because of trump's positions on immigration, for instance the wall, that he's not a christian. >> sure. obviously, we don't want to get into a feud with the pope. we admire and we honor and respect the man and the position that he holds within the catholic faith. we'll take whatever the pope gives, but you can't be fooled and we can't be ignorant of the fact that the pope carries
4:08 pm
weight. i think he also calculates every word that he says because of the way that he knows that he carries to over 1.2, 1.5 billion followers in the world. we'll take whatever we can get. again, mr. trump said yesterday and a couple of days ago that he respects the man. we don't want to get into battle with the pope, but the fact remains that the vatican, whether it has a physical wall or he has a barrier that says the pope is going to be safe wherever he is, if he has a barrier or a protection, i think we as the united states should have one the same. that's really what it's all about. >> ben, listen, the other republican candidates, they haven't shied away from criticizing each other or the republican frontrunner donald trump, but on this issue with donald trump keeping up
4:09 pm
something of a feud with the pope, none of them have criticized his comments. have a listen to what other candidates said. >> vatican city controls who comes in, when they come in, and how they come in as a city state. as a result, the united states has the right to do that as well. >> i think that's a relationship they have with their lord and savior and themselves. i just don't think it is appropriate to question donald trump's faith. >> listen, that's between donald and the pope. i'm not going to get into the middle of that. >> ben, are you surprised on this issue that they did not go after donald trump on his critical comments about the pope? >> no. i think it was a very smart move for them. why would you want to get in the mud with the pope and donald trump? go back to the issue of the wall. i think the other thing that was smart about this was there was some people who say if donald trump is going to get into the
4:10 pm
fight with the pope -- even though he is saying he's not wanting to get into a fight with the pope, he got in a fight with a pope. if they can't even get along with pope, is there anyone he can get along with? he's the art of the deal. this goes back again though to the core issue that we're talking about at the beginning of the show. donald trump doesn't always do what he says he's going to do. remember today he said i was the one that was against the war in iraq. we found out today in an audio recording he was in favor of the war in iraq. he says boycott apple. then yet his own employees are selling make america great again hats on apple products while they swap people's credit card numbers. >> pastor burns, i want to give you a chance to respond, specifically on the iraq war charge. >> the fact remains millions and millions of americans are
4:11 pm
supporting donald trump. number one, it's because he's not the establishment. >> i'm not disputing that. >> they want somebody who is going to say and do exactly what he says he's going to do. >> look at the war in iraq quotes. >> he's attacking apple right now saying, apple, listen, you need to -- >> pastor, i have to ask you a question seriously -- >> make sure you unlock the key so we can find the terrorist. >> we're going to have to leave it there. you see the passion. we're going to see voters getting into the middle of this in south carolina. outfront next, bernie sanders on why hillary clinton is cozying up to president obama. >> she loves the president. he loves her and all that stuff. we know what that's about. joe biden hints on what kind
4:12 pm
of supreme court nominee the president will pick. and an invitation to move to this island if donald trump wins the election and you want to, quote, get the hell out of the u.s. even "turkey jerks."

4:16 pm
tonight, hillary clinton and bernie sanders in a tight race for nevada. we are just hours away from voters starting to caucus in a state that was once considered a safe bet for clinton. on the line, whether this will be a quick race to the democratic nomination or a long drawn out primary fight. both candidates are canvassing the state hoping to secure the votes that will propel them to the victory. >> reporter: it's shaping up as the vegas prize fight of politics. on the eve of the nevada caucuses, hillary clinton and bernie sanders in a deadlocked democratic race. they're drawing cheers and jeers, like when clinton suggested sanders is a democrat come lately. >> maybe it was senator sanders wasn't a democrat until he decided to run for president. he doesn't know what the last
4:17 pm
two democratic presidents did. [ booing ] >> well, it's true. you know it's true. >> i hope we have a very large, very, very large voter turnout tomorrow. >> reporter: the candidates are trying to breakthrough the distractions of las vegas. >> you have to get there at 11:00 a.m. you can't sleep in. sleep in the next day. >> reporter: working to get out the vote for saturday's caucuses, particularly talking latino voters. [ speaking in a foreign language ] >> reporter: in south carolina today, clinton picked up the endorsement of james clyburn. >> the future of the democratic party and the united states of america will be best served with the experiences and know-how of hillary clinton as our 45th president. >> reporter: eight years ago,
4:18 pm
clyburn declined to endorse, a decision that enraged bill clinton. clyburn recounted it in his memoir. he said the president called him in the middle of the night saying if you bastards want a fight, you'll damn well get one. >> everything the president does is wonderful. she loves him and he loves her. we know what that's all about. that's trying to win support with the african-american. i have enormous respect for the president. he's a friend. we have worked together. we has done a great job in many respects, but like any other human being he is wrong on certain issues. >> reporter: now the clinton campaign says it is absurd to suggest that she is embracing president obama simply to win over black voters. she says it is because she is a
4:19 pm
true democrat. that is an implicit slight against bernie sanders suggesting he's not a democrat. rally just wrapped up here in sparks, nevada, a few moments ago. one more rally and then it is on to south carolina as this democratic race continues. >> outfront, mark lamont hill. he interviewed sanders for the b.e.t. special. we have jennifer grenhelm. jonathan, a bernie sanders supporter. you interviewed sanders. what were your thoughts when he accused hillary clinton cozying up to president obama to pander to african-americans? >> i'd say wow. the gloves are off officially if
4:20 pm
they weren't already. the first time i spoke with bernie sanders a few years ago and he said if i make this run, i will have no critique of hillary clinton that could hurt her or anyone else in the general election. i was surprised he would make a critique that creates a rift in the party itself. that's a pretty powerful claim. >> what's your response when you hear sanders accuse clinton of backing obama just to get black votes? >> i would say on behalf of her and all democrats that is utterly insulting. president obama created 15.5 million jobs. 7 million people have access to health care. he saved the auto industry. to suggest it is for political reasons on -- she served with him. we want to extend what the obama
4:21 pm
presidency is about. >> sanders is struggling with the black vote. look at south carolina. hillary clinton leading among black voters 65 to 28. today, congressman james clyburn says he hopes his endorsement helps clinton in nevada. how can sanders win the nomination without making substantial gains from where he is now among black voters? >> well, jim, i think he's already made substantial gains. it's like deja vu. bernie sanders won the popular vote in iowa, even though he tied tied in delegates. he crushed her in new hampshire.
4:22 pm
young people, women, latinos, and african-americans, as people hear more about bernie sanders and what he's for and what he wants to do, they flock to him. i'll give you two quick examples. bernie sanders wants to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. something that hillary clinton opposes. that's something very popular among african-americans. bernie sanders wants to expand social security by lifting the cap on the richest people. hillary clinton opposes that. that would be very popular, particularly among african-americans and all seniors. >> let's open it up a bit. i want to give the governor a chance to respond. jonathan does have a point there when you look at the numbers. clinton was doing well in nevada, very well. polls in nevada aren't always 100% reliable. her campaign manager was the nevada state director for clinton's campaign in 2008.
4:23 pm
that's when she beat obama. how has she lost those significant leads? >> the sanders campaign has significant gains in nevada. 30 days of investments is hard to compare with 30 years of working on behalf of people. tomorrow is going to be a very tight race. as you look ahead, obviously she's doing well in south carolina. 56% of the delegates will be awarded then. one other thing that's important in these two states in particular. hillary clinton came up with a plan to target investment in communities that have been challenged, especially in the area of job creation. why are people so upset because -- why are people so upset? because of the loss of middle
4:24 pm
class jobs. the focus of these people who are concerned about that in those states, especially communities of color, which have a really high unemployment rate, that's important. >> when you look at cnn's latest poll out of nevada, the only issue sanders come out close to beating clinton on is the economy. >> well, it's nice that hillary clinton has woken up and thought about middle class jobs. she shouldn't have supported all of those terrible trade agreements, including nafta. now hillary clinton wakes up and says, oh, let's have middle class jobs because it is pandering to people. she was never -- >> oh, my goodness. >> you want to have a middle class base. you would oppose all those bad trade agreements that she supported. one quick thing that mark brought up in his interview,
4:25 pm
which was mark said, bernie said, look, sometimes i don't agree with president obama. he has opposed the transpacific partnership. >> she is opposed to that. >> she only changed her position when the polls changed. >> she was working -- >> i want to leave that dispute there. i want to go back to mark. this is a key endorsement from congressman clyburn, but when you look at the history mark, you know this better than anyone. they've had a rocky relationship. clyburn did not endorse anyone in 2008. today he said his head and his heart are now with clinton. what's changed? >> i think he made a principled
4:26 pm
choice in 08. i think he's making a principled choice today. i think he didn't want to be on the wrong side of history of going against obama. i think quite honestly he feels like she's the best option. whether other people agree or disagree is an issue. he was attempting not to violate a friendship that we had with clintons, but not being on the wrong side of history. it's going to play out very strongly for secretary clinton who has stronghold in the black community. >> i want to remind our viewers that mark's special with hillary clinton and bernie sanders will air this sunday morning at 10:00 on b.e.t. and centric. coming up next, a cornerstone of donald trump's campaign. >> do not go into iraq.
4:27 pm
do not attack iraq. >> was he actually for the war before he was against it? justice scalia's funeral is tomorrow. president obama says he is not attending. is he missing an opportunity to bring the parties together? my computer's dying again. you'll need to email us so we can issue you a ticket. but you're right here. it's protocol. or, you can try staples tech services next day guarantee. it's fast and done right. i'll do that instead. that's not protocol marsha. in by noon, out by 5 the next day. staples. make more happen. this is lloyd. to prove to you that the better choice for him is aleve. he's agreed to give it up. ok, but i have 30 acres to cover by sundown. we'll be with him all day as he goes back to taking tylenol. yeah, i was ok, but after lunch my knee started hurting again so... more pills. yep... another pill stop. can i get my aleve back yet?
4:28 pm
for my pain... i want my aleve. get all day minor arthritis pain relief with an easy open cap. i'm here to get the lady of the house back on her feet. and give her the strength and energy to stay healthy. who's with me?! yay! the complete balanced nutrition of great tasting ensure. with 9 grams of protein and 26 vitamins and minerals. ensure. take life in!
4:29 pm
hundreds of crash simulations. thousands of hours of painstaking craftsmanship. and an infinite reserve of patience... ...to create a vehicle that looks, drives and thinks like nothing else on the road. the all-new glc. the suv the world has been waiting for. starting at $38,950. i know that's like my grandma the cooked, my mom cooked... ...i cook. chocolate bread pudding, and soufflés, and... ...banana bread. i make a lot of banana bread because the baby likes bananas. so, we always have bananas in the house. (laughs)
4:30 pm
whatever home means to you, we'll help you find it. zillow. [so i use quickbooks and run mye entire business from the cloud. i keep an eye on sales and expenses from anywhere. even down here in the dark i can still see we're having a great month. and celebrate accordingly. i run on quickbooks.that's how i own it. tonight, it is donald trump
4:31 pm
versus donald trump. the republican presidential candidate apparently for the iraq war before he was against the war. will trump's own words on what was perhaps the most crucial u.s. foreign policy decision in the last decade damage his candidacy? todd foreman is out front. >> reporter: it's a common refrain for donald trump. >> going into iraq may have been the worst decision any president has made in the history of this country. that's how bad it is, okay? >> reporter: yet it seems the gop frontrunner wasn't always opposed to the war in iraq. he's left to explain his 2002 comments to howard stern. >> are you for invading iraq? >> yeah, i guess so. i wish the first time it was done correctly. >> reporter: trump was asked about his comments during cnn's town hall. >> do you remember saying that? >> no. i could have said that. >> reporter: and again this
4:32 pm
morning. >> you said you were for the invasion. >> you can see i was not exactly strongly in favor. >> reporter: trump is explaining his evolution to south carolina voters today. >> the first guy to ask me about iraq was howard stern. before the war started, i was against that war. i was against that war. >> reporter: to prove his opposition, trump points to comments he made in 2004 to "esquire magazine" where he said look at the war in iraq and the mess we're in. i would have never handled it that way. that statement came more than a year after the war began. >> your brother and your brother's administration gave us barack obama because it was such a disaster those last three months that abraham lincoln couldn't have been elected. >> as it relates to my brother, there's one thing i know for sure. he kept us safe. >> reporter: trump using george w. bush's legacy to constantly
4:33 pm
hit rival jeb bush. >> i'll be honest. the last thing we need is another bush. that i can tell you. that i can tell you. >> reporter: and even getting into a war of words with the former president himself. >> there seems to be a lot of name calling going on, but i want to remind you what our good dad told me one time. labels are for soup cans. the presidency is a serious job that requires sound judgment. >> if bush is insulted, i don't care if he is insulted. it was a horrible mistake. >> reporter: each time donald trump has tripped on his own words his supporters have stuck by him. what remains to be seen is will they keep doing that here in south carolina and nevada and the super tuesday states and those other states with voters waiting down the campaign trail? >> the national co-chair for donald trump's campaign and the editor of the weekly standard.
4:34 pm
donald trump from the beginning has insisted throughout this campaign he was a vocal critic of going to war in iraq in 2003, but now we have this interview. he's saying the opposite here. did trump just get caught in a lie? >> i don't think it was a lie. i think it was perhaps he didn't remember saying it. if you listen to the clip, it was a lack of conviction. i will tell you a lot of people have changed their minds about the war in iraq over time. i certainly did. i spent two years on the ground in the middle east collecting combat pay. after my son's fifth deployment, i changed my mind on the war too and i thought it was a huge mistake. i'm as conservative as anybody going to be talking here tonight. i thought it was a huge mistake after reflection. >> is that a fair defense? >> i respect sam and i respect him for saying he changed his
4:35 pm
mind, but donald trump has never said he changed his mind. he can't produce any evidence of being vocally against the war beforehand. i was for the war and i remain a defender of the war. on several issues on the war in iraq, on the individual mandate in obamacare, on planned parenthood, donald trump says one thing. he gets a little grief. he says the opposite thing. he never acknowledges he's changed his mind or learned anything. >> donald trump praised george w. bush for how he handled the first gulf war in 1991. listen to what he said. >> senior bush did the right thing. he knocked the heck out of them and then he pulled back. he didn't get into the quagmire. that was okay to do. >> are you for invading iraq? >> yeah, i guess so.
4:36 pm
i wish the first time it was done direct correctly. >> sam, that sounds like another reversal. >> i don't think so. i have a great deal of respect for bill. i'm quite honored to be on the program with him tonight because i've been a fan of his father and bill for quite sometime. i don't agree with bill all the time, but i have a respect for his thoughts. i think this is an issue of a civilian. this is a person who is maybe a celebrity, but he's not a politician. i think a person has the opportunity to over time change their minds. on reflection, you look back and say what should have been done at that time. i was an advocate of the first time we should have gone further. i've kind of gone through that catharsis of thought we should have gone further in the first one and i felt like we shouldn't have been there in the second
4:37 pm
one. i've had just that opposite view. i think people are entitled to change. if you don't remember what you said, you don't remember what you said. i think the voters of america are going to make a determination on this as we go forward in this process. if this is to stir controversy, if this is to poke, that might be successful, but the issue still comes down to what the voters are going to do tomorrow and on super tuesday and the rest of the primaries. >> bill, as you know, you take donald trump to task for going even further with his criticism of the iraq war saying that george w. bush lied about weapons of mass destruction being in iraq. i'm going to quote from your editorial. you said once upon a time we had leaders who would have expressed their outrage another such a slander. they would have explained to the american people who you extraordinarily irresponsible his slander was. we apparently no longer live in
4:38 pm
such a time. that is a strong criticism, to me. >> look, if donald trump sounded like sam and was as thoughtful as sam and expressed his views looking backward on foreign policy, that would be fine with me. this is a guy who says at a national debate that george bush's team lied to get us into iraq. it's totally irresponsible. it's a slander. bush was wrong about weapons of mass destruction. a lot have us were wrong, but stro donald trump is just so cavalier. are you willing to say that about a guy who was president just ten years ago, that a president of the united states knowingly lied to get us into war? it's something president obama has never said. hillary clinton has never said. bernie sanders doesn't say that. it's fine if he changes his mind
4:39 pm
or if he can't remember every comment at an interview. it's he's so cavalier in the way that he says things that are so irresponsible to say. >> thank you for a very calm discussion. it's great to have you on. outfront next, an unusual sight. justice scalia's clerks standing vigil at his side. plus, the very political fight playing out in court right now. should gunmakers be held responsible for mass shootings? >> not anymore than you would hold a hammer company responsible for somebody beat someone over the head with a hammer. diabetes, steady is exciting.

4:41 pm
4:42 pm
4:43 pm
tonight, thousands are paying their final respects to supreme court justice antonin scalia. you are looking at live pictures there as colleagues, friends, admirers file past his casket as he lies in repose inside the supreme court's great hall. it's been a day of mourning and great tribute.
4:44 pm
scalia's casket arrived at 9:30 this morning, carried up the marble steps, where it was met by the other supreme court justices. earlier this afternoon, president obama arrived to offer his condolences since he will not be attending tomorrow's funeral. jeffr jeffr jeffrey tooban is outfront. >> the thing i don't think people recognize about the supreme court is how small and intimate an institution it is. this is not the federal government. this is nine people at a time with a handful of law clerks and support staff. when one justice leaves and especially when a justice dies, you can just feel the sadness in the building. this is, of course, a big national controversy, but this is also a very personal event. you sense that, or i did, in the
4:45 pm
courthouse today. >> i believe those are his clerks who stand watch as it were by his casket there. another one of those traditions that we talk about. now, so quickly this turns to politics in talking about the potential replacement. we heard from the vice president speaking to msnbc about the kind of president or rather the kind of candidate the president might choose as he considers it this weekend. >> i think we ought to be able to find a consensus candidate that meets that criteria because the senate does have a right to have a say in what the philosophy of what the nominee is, but they only get to dispose. the president proposes. >> who do you see on that short list? >> judges who have been confirmed overwhelmingly, like sri and jane kelly, paul
4:46 pm
watford. these are obama judges who republicans have supported during their confirmation fights. frankly, i don't think any of them are going to be confirmed. the question is can the president put the republicans on the defensive with the choice, but the republicans are never going to confirm anyone the president nominates other the next ten months. but this person may be lined up for a democratic appointment if a democrat wins. >> the toughest job offer you'll ever get too, which ever candidate gets it. >> you bet. outfront next, it's an issue that clinton and sanders are deeply divided on. should gunmakers be held responsible for mass shootings? plus, the canadian island that's ready to take in americans if donald trump wins the election.
4:47 pm
