2:00 am
drama. trump will not rule out an effort to dump house speaker paul ryan as chairman of the republican convention if ryan fails to endorse him. these guys are fighting for the soul of the republican party. these two meet thursday. one of the things they will talk about trump policies that seem to be at odds with republican dogma. there is at issue which is trump's position of changing position on the minute wage. let's get more from eric bradner in washington. >> reporter: good morning, john and christine. the gop civil war is raging on ahead of the big meeting this week between the party's highest ranking official house spear he can paul ryan and presumptive nominee donald trump. here is what donald trump said sunday. >> he wants to meet and we are meeting on thursday. we will see what happens. it is more drama. i think it is a mistake not to
2:01 am
do this. we want to bring the party together. does the party have to be together? i'm very different than everybody else that's ever run for office. >> reporter: the meeting might not heal many wounds. ryan wants trump to adopt more conservative policy positions. trump broke from the right on sunday. he said he is willing to support higher taxes on the wealthy in exchange for the deal that would see democrats give him a cut in business taxes and cut for the middle class. he said he is open to a minimum wage increase although he wants that to come from the states. all of this is happening against the back drop of a big threat by a trump supporter. the 2008 republican vice presidential nominee sarah palin. palin told cnn she is going to support ryan's primary challenger. >> i will do whatever i can for paul nelan. this man is a hard working guy. so in touch with the people. paul ryan and his ilk, their
2:02 am
problem is they have become so disconnected from the people whom they are elected to represent as evidenced by paul ryan's refusal to support the gop frontrunner that we just said he's our man. >> reporter: the first threat of retaliation against the trump opponent within the party that we have seen so far. and it could deepen the divide. christine and john. >> let's break down the fast changing political landscape this morning. ellis henican. good morning. >> they are moving fast. >> it's already 5:02. this week is flying by. >> a lot going on this week. this week marks six months until the general election. >> six more months of this? >> let's talk about sarah palin. she was on "state of the union." she made a new verb.
2:03 am
cantored. >> i think paul ryan is soon to be cantored. as in eric cantor. he is so disrespected the will of the people. yeah, as the leader of the gop, the convention, he certainly is to remain neutral. for him to already come out and say who he will not support was not a wise decision of his. >> maybe you don't remember eric cantor. he lost his seat to a tea party upstart in his home state and he lost his job as speaker. my question is do you think the o outsiders think they don't need the establishment? >> you are absolutely right. donald trump has shown no indication the party needs to be unified. he has a theory of stacking up
2:04 am
the industrial states and rust belt states down the middle. >> the flip side is who's party? the party says what? more than 10 million voters in the republican primaries have picked donald trump. they say well it is a minority. the truth is as the primaries go on, donald trump is getting over 50%. it is now a majority. who does ryan represent here other than paul ryan? >> that's a great question. there is not a simple answer. we have a couple of parties vying. there is a meeting on thursday with donald trump and paul ryan. and sort of try to work out differences. ryan's the one with the power. if he says hold on, if he says, fine. you don't want me chairing the convention, i'll quit. i don't think that's really good for the future of the trump candidacy. >> i think paul ryan has set up a difficult decision and position for himself. if he decides to go with trump, he has to explain why. what did trump say that made
2:05 am
ryan comfortable. if he doesn't go with trump, he as to be the speaker split with the nominee. >> we know historically that all of the momentum is unity. eventually most people come around. there has been rough stuff said. when is ted cruz coming up? the pathological liar? >> the paul ryan story is fascinating. they see him as running for president. he was a vice president candidate. they see him in 2020. does he want the fingerprints of supporting donald trump on his legacy if he is eventually going to run for president? >> that's the calculation he is making. other republicans as well. do they say, we'll suffer defeat in the election and a couple of years of rough times if we can put this behind us. that's a tough bet. >> i didn't mean to diminish the notion of differences between paul ryan and donald trump. you look at positions that
2:06 am
donald trump has taken. in some cases, they are changing. in some cases, they are at odds with the party anthd themselves. he put out a plan that cut tax rates with everybody. now he is open to raising taxes on the wealthy. listen. >> i come up with the biggest tax cut by far of any candidate. anybody. put it in. we have to negotiate. the thing i'm going to do is make sure the middle class gets good taxes. they have been absolutely shunned. the other thing i'll fight very hard for business. for the wealthy, i think it will go up. you know what? it should go up. >> that's different. that's different than the cornerstone of his tax plan which is cutting taxes for everyone. >> christine, the presumption is as we go from the primary phase into the general election phase, we would be getting a different kind of donald trump. a calmer, more measured.
2:07 am
more policy oriented. it seems to me he is still throwing stuff against the wall. >> among the stuff he is throwing against the wall, comments of bill and hillary clinton. not letting up. intensifying to the general. listen to what he said about the clintons. >> she's married to a man who is the worst abuser of women in the history of politicians. she's married to a man who hurt many women and hillary, if you look and if you study, hillary hurt many women. the women that he abused. she's married to a man who got impeached for lying. >> donald trump wanted them to be at his own wedding. they were wedding guests at his wedding celebrating his third marriage. >> it is an interesting point. clearly a sensitive point with the clintons. you can maybe get under their skin a bit by bringing that up again. we litigated that already.
2:08 am
blaming the woman for the affairs the husband had, i don't know. that wouldn't sell too well. >> that launched a popular tv series. i think the woman card, he's going to stick to this. the next six months, this is central to his campaign. ellis, talk to you soon. we will talk to donald trump this morning on cnn. he'll be on "new day" during the 7:00 hour. donald trump shifting on the tax policy over the weekend. a cornerstone of the economic policy that taxes go down for everyone. he says taxes on the wealthy may now increase after he negotiates with congress. he is intent on keeping the cuts for the middle class. especially for businesses. ment u.s. has the highest corporate income tax rate among developed nations. most u.s. companies don't pay the top tax rate.
2:09 am
they have loopholes. you see the worldwide average is 22.9% tax rate. he wants to cut the taxes. he said he would create incentives to get companies to cooperate with his tax plan. pretty interesting. two of the big points of his economic policies he shifted on. minimum wage and the taxes. this morning, hundreds of thousands of acres up in flames. the wildfires blazing over western canada. destroying everything in sight. can a turn in the weather create some kind of break for those battling this blaze?

2:18 am
to the letter. at issue is the funding for north carolina schools. >> they gave the ninth largest state in the united states, the civil rights division of the justice department, three working days to respond to a complex letter and big threat. we don't think three working days is enough time to respond to such a threat. we are talking about a letter in which they are trying to define gender identity. there is no clear identification or definition of gender identity. it's the federal government being a bully. >> the justice department warned north carolina its new law which requires transgender people to use public bathrooms k corresponding to the sex on their birth certificate. and the police chief today, major delrish moss takes over two years after the shooting

2:32 am
conservative policies. trump said he is willing to support higher taxes on the wealthy in exchange for a deal for democrats to give him a cut in business tax. he is open to a minimum wage increase. although he wants that to come from the states. this is happening against the back drop of a big threat by a trump supporter. the 2008 republican vice presidential nominee sarah palin. palin told cnn she is going to support ryan's primary challenger. >> i will do whatever i can for paul nealan. this man is a hard working guy. so in touch with the people. paul ryan and his ilk, their problem is they have become so disconnected from the people whom they are elected to represent. as evidenced by paul ryan's refusal to support the gop frontrunner that we just said
2:33 am
he's our man. >> reporter: the first threat of retaliation we have seen so far. it could deepen the divide. christine. >> thank you, eric. let's break this down. let's look at this fast changing landscape. joining us is author ellison henican. republicans are now taking sides. paul ryan is not there yet. jeb bush is not going vote for donald trump. john mccain, one of the people donald trump insulted. john mccain said he will support donald trump. he will vote for donald trump. this weekend, mccain had interesting analysis. let's listen. >> you have to draw the conclusion that there is some distance, if not a disconnect with party leadership and members of congress and many of the voters who selected donald trump to be the nominee of the party. >> what do you say of that other
2:34 am
than yes? >> wow! what an understanding gentleman. that is the difference between the old gop and new gop. >> it is interesting and telling about the challenges that the party faces going forward? >> that's right. most people who are little more prickly than john mccain would say forget that. why should i support you? that is part of what's happening. a general tendency to rally around a nominee at a time like this. boy there are a lot of personal hard feelings. >> i want to listen to what donald trump said about hillary clinton and the clintons and the hillary clinton response. when you look at the sound that we put together for you, you can see the story line developing. listen. >> she's married to a man who is the worst abuser of women in the history of politics. she is married to a man who hurt many women.
2:35 am
hillary hurt many women. the women that he abused. she's married to a man who got impeached for lying. >> i think saying that he's a loose cannon really focuses on some of the statements he's made which i find concerning. going back to torture. killing terrorists families which would be a war crime. and those are just some of the concerns that i hear people talking about which i think does fit the definition of a loose cannon. >> is there where we are going to go? >> hold on. loose cannon. that's what the trump supporters like. go be looser. that's the guy we love. >> he's not going to get any more women numbers from what he says. is the core supporters who love this talk. >> that's right. he believes, he has proven us wrong before. he believes there are still a
2:36 am
lot of people out there who are attracted with the tone and attitude and message. it is not about ideology. it is attitude. >> you talk to the clinton campaign. they have been studying donald trump for a long time. they had a long time to look at this. they think the way to go after donald trump isn't to make fun of his hands. isn't to call him just a pathological liar, which is something that ted cruz tried to do. you have to tie -- they want to be aggressive and you have to tie it to an issue. we saw it there. loose cannon, but a loose cannon on issues like torture and killing terrorists families. i don't know if they are right or wrong, but do you think that strategy work? >> i might not have picked those two because trump has a majority of views on those. the idea of coming back and tying it to issues and not waiting around to respond. remember what happened with m e
2:37 am
dukakis? >> do you think the trump supporters care he is shifting position on minimum wage and taxes? >> i don't think any of it is about policy and ideological issues. >> it is attitude. >> he is representing what people are feeling. that is not what motivated. >> the sentiment out there and you hear it. van jones, he is terrified. he thinks people are under estimates donald trump and he can do well. the flip side is this, the polls actually told us donald trump would win the primary. he has been up in the polls since august. people not trusting the polls. if the polls are still as right, then hillary clinton actually has an historically lead by
2:38 am
margins. >> win by 15 points. let me put van's concerns at ease. she is running in a very different electrorate. boy, he romped there, but there is no sign yet he will be able to romp so broadly. >> bernie is in it. >> he could have a decent month. the math is tough. >> she won 9 of the last 12. she did not have the delegates. thanks, ellis. donald trump will be on "new day" live this morning. that will happen during the 7:00 hour. business news this morning. uber and lyft slamming the brakes in austin. residents in austin voted 56% against an ordinance called proposition 1.

2:48 am
