tv   Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans  CNN  May 11, 2016 1:00am-2:01am PDT

1:00 am
breaking overnight, big wins for donald trump and bernie sanders. trump the presumptive republican nominee planning his general election strategy as sanders claims his wins show he can beat hillary clinton to the democratic nomination. good morning, everybody. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm john berman. this morning, donald trump and bernie sanders are waking up with big west virginia wins. donald trump is the only republican still running for president. he easily won west virginia. he also took nebraska.
1:01 am
he adds at least 39 delegates to his total. it will end up being way more than that once west virginia's convoluted process works its way out. on the democratic side, it was only west virginia. they voted big for bernie sanders. he crushed hillary clinton there. but even with that big win, even with a 15% win, he barely chipped away at clinton's delegate lead. if you include super delegates, she's only 148 short of securing a majority for the nomination. even so, sanders told supporters last night he can still win. >> with our victory tonight in west virginia, we have now won primaries and caucuses in 19
1:02 am
states. [ cheers and applause ] and let me be as clear as i can be. we are in this campaign to win the democratic nomination. >> you notice bernie sanders was in oregon there. they vote later this month. this morning donald trump is party and put states in play for november that have gone for democrats in recent elections. that's his plan at least. cnn politics reporter sarah murray has the latest. >> reporter: good morning, john and christine. donald trump picked up two more victories last night, winning in west virginia and nebraska. now, we shouldn't be totally stunned by this since all the rest of the republicans have now dropped out of the race. but it still brings trump even closer to officially becoming the republican nominee. of course, part of doing this means rallying the republican party behind him. trump has had some hiccups along those lines. house speaker paul ryan said he wasn't quite ready to endorse trump. the the two are going to be meeting later in the week in
1:03 am
washington to try to hash out those differences. trump was talking last night in some interviews, and he was sounding a much more optimistic tone. his aides believe they can reach some common ground on issues like cutting taxes for the middle class, debt reduction, and trump even said he wants to see paul ryan stay on as co-chairman of the republican convention coming up this summer in cleveland. this could be a sign they're ready to sweep their differences under the rug, or there could be more fireworks ahead. back to you guys. >> sara, thank you for that. bernie sanders scored a huge win in west virginia, but it barely budges the needle in the delegate race, where hillary clinton has a big, big lead without many states left. still, sanders is vowing not to quit. he not only continued to challenge clinton at a victory rally late last night, he also went hard at donald trump. cnn's brianna keilar was there. she's got the latest. >> reporter: on the evening of the west virginia primary that bernie sanders won, talking to
1:04 am
these crowd here in oregon, he sounded like a candidate who's really pushing through this primary season to win. he took on hillary clinton on a number of issues, on the environment, on trade, on campaign finance, including a donation that her democratic fund received from alice walton of the walmart walton family. but he also garnered a lot of energy and excitement from his supporters here when he took on donald trump. >> donald trump is not going to become president for a number of reasons. and the major reason is that the american people understand that we cannot have a president who has insulted latinos and mexicans, who has insulted muslims, who every day is insulting women in one way or another, who has insulted veterans like john mccain and
1:05 am
others, who has insulted african-americans in a very profound way. >> reporter: bernie sanders explaining to his supporters that he has received 45% of the pledged delegates. that goes to show you the math and why it is so difficult for him because moving forward, in order to tie hillary clinton and just the pledged delegates, he would need to seize 66% of the pledged delegates in all of the primary contests ahead. that is a huge undertaking, nearly impossible, john and christine. >> brianna keilar, thanks so much. joining us to discuss, cnn political analyst and columnist for bloomberg view josh rogan. we're now in may. sort of like maalox may for hillary clinton. it's uncomfortable. she's going to lose. she lost in west virginia. she could lose more states coming up. it feels lousy, but for the
1:06 am
sanders team, they say they see these delegate challenges. >> let's stipulate west virginia was not boing to be hillary clinton's strong state. it plays to all her weaknesses. as we saw on the exit polls last night, clinton continued to do poorly with working class white voters, with independents, with people who don't support the obama agenda and people who have been disadvantaged by economic globalization. so the charitable way to look at this is it's better for hillary clinton to try to solve some of these problems now than maybe in august, september, and october. you see her putting more resources into addressing these kinds of states with these kinds of people. she's going to go back up on the air with ads in kentucky. she's going to send her husband bill clinton out there to campaign for her. so she's trying to stem this bleeding, but it's not a good look to lose a bunch of your last primaries as you head toward your nomination. >> some of those counties last
1:07 am
night have 30% unemployment. some of them have localized great depression, some economists call it, and the donald trump message really resonating there. hillary clinton had a tough road there. when you look at some of those exit polls, even the bernie sanders supporters said if it were hillary clinton and donald trump in the fall, who would you vote for, they said donald trump. the donald trump story line really played perfectly into what's been happening there in west virginia. at some point, instead of complaining about what's going wrong, they have to start saying how they're going to fix it and what's going to go right. i thought it was interesting that hillary clinton just proposed a cap on childcare, a plan to cap childcare costs at 10% of family income. is that, josh rogan, hillary clinton listening to what bernie sanders has been saying, what his supporters have been saying, and trying to move a little to the left but show families, hey, look, this is not the united states of losers, this is the united states of fixers, we're
1:08 am
going to fix this. >> yes, i think you're seeing two things. you're seeing her try to address some of the specific policy challenges that the bernie sanders campaign has presented to her, but you also see her trying to make up for some of the mistakes she's made. west virginia was a state where she said that the coal miners in her view should go out of business. so she's now looking back at this and saying, okay, it's not enough just to go with the platform that she started with. she's going to have to be mobile. she's going to have to be nimble. she's going to have to react to what the voters are telling her. in the end, what's going to happen is that bernie sanders' campaign is going to amass as many delegates as they can and try to influence the platform at the party convention in philadelphia in july. now, they can do that, but in the end, those platforms, as we all know, are not really the last word in campaigns. so the question is whether hillary clinton is going to veer to the left for the rest of the primary and then recalculate and figure out what she needs to do to beat donald trump in the
1:09 am
fall. >> as for donald trump, he's locked up the nomination. he is the presumptive nominee, but he hasn't locked up the support of everyone in his party. so there's the paul ryan primary. he meets with paul ryan on thursday. right here on cnn with jake tapper, there's sort of the marco rubio primary. he dropped out of the race in march. people wanted to know what he would do in the general election, if he would support donald trump. he kind of told jake yes, sort of. watch. >> are you going to vote for him? >> well, as i said, i'm going to support the republican nominee. >> no, you're going to abide by your pledge, but when you go into the privacy of the voting booth -- >> i intend to support the republican nominee. >> including -- >> i'm not voting for hillary clinton. >> okay. >> i'm not throwing away my vote. >> he couldn't bring himself to say the words donald trump. that was among the most tepid signs of support you could ever have. >> that's right. i spent all day yesterday talking to republican senators on capitol hill who had all come
1:10 am
back to town after a long recess. they all had varying degrees of the same message. they want to support the republican nominee. some of them are actively now reaching out to the donald. some of them are receiving calls from it the donald. they all have the same attitude. what are we going to do? we have no choice. they don't want to contemplate the alternative, which is a broken party for the next six months. so they're trying. it's all based on this hope and this prayer that there is enough common ground and enough overlap between what donald trump thinks and what they think that they can move forward together, but nobody really knows if that's tru true. when trump and ryan meet, you'll see this really stark sort of dynamic where the republicans can't believe the situation that they're in, but they're trying to deal with it any way they can. >> paul ryan telling "the wall street journal" essentially, look, this was a tough primary season, it took more than a week to divide this republican party, it'll take more than a week to unite it.
1:11 am
is he down playing expectations for thursday? >> no, i think what he's doing is laying out the fact that he wants to see some concessions, right. his whole play here is he knows he's going to have to support donald trump in the end. he wants donald trump to give him some stuff so that he can go back to the rest of his rank and file and say, look, not only do we have to work with him, but he has to work with us. it's just not clear that donald trump is willing to do any of those things. we really don't know, but this whole idea that donald trump is going to play nice with the republican caucus in exchange for them helping him with the fundraising and the get out and vote, the data, and all this other stuff he's going to need them for in the general election has not born out yet. so paul ryan is keeping his powder dry so he can be in a better negotiating position, but negotiating with donald trump is never an easy task. >> right. all right, josh rogan. thanks for waking up early with us. west virginia has the second highest unemployment rate in the
1:12 am
nation, 6 .5%. 92% of democratic primary voters say they're worried about the economy. that's one of the highest totals we have seen this primary season. more than half of those voters sided with bernie sanders. his populous message on trade really resonating in west virginia. 53% say trade with other countries kills u.s. jobs. that group broke for sanders. 35% said trade creates jobs. that group was split evenly between clinton and sanders. west virginia, of course, coal country, about a third of democratic voters said they are coal industry households. 55% of those voters broke for bernie sanders. that follows hillary clinton's comments about putting coal miners and companies out of business. she's since tried to sit down and back pedal that and say, look, i want to help people in west virginia get jobs. those comments about coal, something really hard to dodge here. on the republican side, obviously a win for donald trump, but that support behind him is pretty solid. 59% of republican primary voters in west virginia say it's likely trump would beat hillary clinton. another 28% say it's somewhat
1:13 am
likely. 74% tell us they'd be excited or optimistic if trump is elected. all right. 12 minutes after the hour. a deadly knife attack that started inside a home and ended up in a boston area mall. six people wounded, two dead. we have new information on these attacks next. muddling through your morning is nothing new. ...your nose is the only thing on your mind... ...and to get relief, anything is fair game. introducing rhinocort® allergy spray from the makers of zyrtec®. powerful relief from your most frustrating nasal allergy symptom* ,all day and all night. hasn't your nose been through enough already? try new rhinocort® allergy spray. muddle no more®

big wins for donald trump and bernie sanders overnight. trump cruising toward the official republican nomination. bernie sanders making things complicated for hillary clinton as she tries to move on. welcome back to "early start," everyone. i'm john berman. >> so nice to see you this morning. i'm christine romans. 31 minutes past the hour. this morning donald trump and bernie sanders are waking up with big west virginia wins. trump, the only republican still running for president, easily won west virginia, also nebraska. he adds at least 39 delegates to his total, but it will end up being more than that once west virginia's kind of convoluted process works itself out. trump needs 1,237 to win the republican nomination. on the democratic side, it was just west virginia voting.
1:31 am
that was just fine for bernie sanders. he crushed hillary clinton in west virginia. even with his win, sanders barely chips away at clinton's delegate lead. if you include super delegates, she is only about 148 short of securing a majority for the nomination. even so, sanders told supporters last night he can still win. >> with our victory tonight in west virginia, we have now won primaries and caucuses in 19 states. [ cheers and applause ] and let me be as clear as i can be. we are in this campaign to win the democratic nomination. >> this morning donald trump looking to unite the republican party and to put states in play for november that have gone to the democrats in recent

elections. cnn politics reporter sara murray has the latest. >> reporter: good morning, john and christine. donald trump picked up two more victories last night, winning in west virginia and nebraska. we shouldn't be totally stunned by this, since all the rest of the republicans have now dropped out of the race. but it still brings trump even closer to officially becoming the republican nominee. of course, part of doing this means rallying the republican party behind him. trump has had some hiccups along those lines. house speaker paul ryan said he wasn't quite ready to endorse trump. the two are going to be meter later in the week in washington to try to hash out those differences, and trump was talking last night in some interviews and sounding a much more optimistic tone. his aides believe they can reach some agreement, some common ground on issues like cutting taxes for the middle tax, debt reduction, and trump said he wants to see paul ryan stay on as co-chairman of the republican convention coming up this summer in cleveland. so this could be a sign that they're ready to sweep their differences under the rug, or there could be more fireworks
1:33 am
ahead. back to you guys. >> all right. sara murray, thank you so much. bernie sanders scored a huge win in west virginia, but it really barely budges the needle in the delegate race, where hillary clinton has a big, big lead. there are not many states left to vote. still, sanders is vowing not to quit. he not only continued to challenge clinton last night, he also went after donald trump. cnn's brianna keilar was there. >> reporter: john and christine, on the evening of the west virginia primary that bernie sanders won, talking to this crowd here in oregon, he sounded like a candidate who's really pushing through this primary season to win. he took on hillary clinton on a number of issues, on the environment, on environment, on campaign finance, including a donation that her democratic fund received from alice walton of the walmart walton family. but he also garnered a lot of energy and excitement from his supporters here when he took on
1:34 am
donald trump. >> donald trump is not going to become president for a number of reasons. and the major reason is that the american people understand that we cannot have a president who has insulted latinos and mexicans, who has insulted muslims, who every day is insulting women in one way or another, who has insulted veterans like john mccain and others, who has insulted african-americans in a very profound way. >> reporter: bernie sanders explaining to his supporters that he has received 45% of the pledged delegates. that goes to show you the math and why it is so difficult for him. because moving forward, in order to tie hillary clinton and just the pledged delegates, he would need to seize 66% of the pledged
1:35 am
delegates in all of the primary contests ahead. that is a huge undertaking, nearly impossible, john and christine. >> thanks for that, brianna. let's discuss last night's results. josh rogan is with us. it was a good night for bernie sanders and donald trump. talking about the democrats first, bernie sanders in west virginia. west virginia is really about west virginia. now he's got to move forward to some of these other states who have a very different makeup, very different look. joe biden, the sitting vice president, says he's pretty confident that he knows who the nominee will be. listen. >> translator: i feel confident that hillary will be the nominee, and i feel confident she'll be the next president. >> so there you go. look, you've got the established democrats saying it will be hillary, it's just a matter of time. but bernie sanders is hanging in there for the foreseeable future. he's relishing in this win last night. >> right. i think joe biden is right at least on one of those two
1:36 am
things. hillary clinton will probably be the nominee. what we see is that she's changing, she's being forced to change her tactics because bernie sanders refuses to go away. reporters got two hillary clinton campaign press releases following her loss in west virginia. the first was about her new plan to reduce childcare costs, which she announced in kentucky as you mentioned before. the second was bill clinton to campaign in the virgin islands. the virgin islands don't vote in the general election. so this can only be interpreted as an increased push by the clinton campaign to wrap it up, to go after these delegates, to get to that threshold will bernie sanders will no longer be able to claim he has a chance of getting this nomination. she's adjusted. she's changed her tactics. she's spending money she doesn't want to be spending, that she wants to be saving for a fight against donald trump. the silver lining could be that she's addressing the problems in her campaign now rather than later. that's her problems with working
1:37 am
class white voters, problems with people who feel left out by globalization, and her problems in states that don't share the obama agenda vision she's been running on. but in the end, there's only a limited amount of time and money. so hillary clinton campaign is putting its foot on the gas. they want to wrap this up. >> quickly, i want to tell our viewers what that cap on childcare spending is. she wants to limit how much a typical family spends on childcare to 10% of their income. that goes right at the heart of what so many primary voters have been telling us. they have student loans, childcare costs. sometimes childcare costs are as expensive as college tuition. you can see this pivot toward a general for hillary clinton where she's trying to say, look, i understand a lot of people feel malaise about the economy, but this is how i'm going to fix it. >> it's also what she wants to do against donald trump. they want to talk about policy as much as possible. so it works both in a primary and a general election. i played this sound last half hour, but i have to play it
1:38 am
again. if you look at reticent in the dictionary, it would have a link to this clip right here. reticent, convoluted. that's how you might describe how marco rubio says he will support donald trump in the general election. listen to this. >> are you going to vote for him? >> well, as i said, i'm going to support the republican nominee. >> no, you're going to abide by your pledge, but when you go into the privacy of the voting booth -- >> i intend to support the republican nominee, i think that -- >> including -- >> i'm not voting for hillary clinton. >> okay. >> i'm not throwing away my vote. >> oh, that was painful. >> marco rubio agreed to sit down with jake yesterday. this is days in advance. we've been promoting this interview for a long time. he knew that was going to be the main question. and that is the answer that he planned to give. what message is he sending there? >> i think it's twofold. marco rubio was very clear. he does not want to be the guy who all the reporters go to who look for bad, critical quotes on
1:39 am
donald trump. he's not going to play that role. he's not going to stand inside the republican party and bash the republican party nominee. that's for a number of reasons. it's not a good look for him, doesn't think it's productive, doesn't help him overall. that's number one. number two is i think every republican, and again, there's a wide range sort of struggling with this horrible existential crisis in their own party, which is do we put our money and our effort and our souls with the immediate problem, which is how to beat hillary clinton, or do we save the principles of the republican party and the conservative movement for the next election. nobody has the answer to that. so marco rubio is more to the side of sticking to what he's always been saying. i talked to a guy named bob corker, a senator from nebraska, yesterday. >> the next vice president of the united states. >> maybe. who knows. anything could happen. this guy said he's more willing to sort of work with donald trump and find areas can of common interest. he thinks donald trump can be
1:40 am
persuaded to come around to supporting the ideals of the republican party traditionally, even on foreign policy. that may be true. i don't see it right now. so every republican is making this calculation, and they're all waiting for paul ryan to lead. what paul ryan says after the meeting thursday, which again will be somewhere in between full-throated support and i can't deal with this guy, and that will become the standard bearer. after that, i think a lot of republicans will fall in line behind the speaker. >> who's got the leverage here? donald trump's got the leverage. he keeps winning and winning and winning. he's bringing new people out of the woodwork to vote. donald trump seems to have the upper hand in this if you want to talk about who's trying to persuade whom to change their policies. >> i totally adprgree. however, this is the moment where the party has any leverage
1:41 am
if they have any. donald trump doesn't have the infrastructure, all the tools you need to go against clinton machine. tomorrow is the best opportunity for the republicans to say, you need us, even a little bit. that's why the trump staff was meeting with the rnc monday. that's why they're meeting behind closed doors with senators and lawmakers all this week. the republican party has to try to find some broad umbrella, some value, some basic principles. they want to convince donald to stop doing the most crazy stuff, stop alienatesiing piles of vot they need. >> all right. josh rogin, thanks for stopping by this morning. >> he's the king of the mornings. >> he's always very happy. must have an iv drip of

a liquid and then a lotion. what it does is sort of firms things up. it's kind of this second skin, some people are calling it. other people are calling it spanx for your face. now, it's not a solution. it lasts kind of like spanx. you take them off at the end of the day. this also comes off at the end of the day. you can think of it as cosmetic in that way. but as you can see from the photo that we're showing, it does appear to sort of flatten out some of the wrinkles and some of the fat pads. >> is there a catch beyond the fact it's not permanent? it's just basically a kind of makeup, i suppose. not makeup, but an application on your face. >> skin care, yeah. >> right. one of the catches is that they've tried this in a relatively small number of people for a relatively short time. sometimes there's lots of excitement when you're at this pilot study stage. later on down the road, it's like, oh, you know what, it

tough time finding the right workers. in 2007, before the great recession, there were an average of 4.5 million job openings per month. last year there were 5.3 open positions on average. the job skills gap is a major reason why there are still high levels of part-time workers and underemployment in the u.s. it's why many americans feel disgruntled about the economy. it's also a big part of the reason why wages haven't risen very much during the economic recovery. there's a lot of argument about what is holding us back. is it companies are expecting more? did they used to do more training? did unions used to have a bigger hold on manufacturing in particular, so companies and unions together retrained workers? has that changed? what is going on here? >> another one of these issues where the inflection point, the great recession was a pure inflection point. i still don't think we know the ramifications.
