tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN May 11, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PDT
for donald trump and bernie sanders. donald trump the presumptive nominee, he's got no opponents left, but he's cruising toward the general election. bernie sanders, he's still got an opponent left. hillary clinton. that doesn't make hillary clinton very happy at all. we're breaking it all down this morning. good morning, everyone. welcome to "early start." i'm john berman. >> and i'm christine romans. it is wednesday, may 11th. it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. nices to see you all this morning. donald trump and bernie sanders are waking up with big west virginia wins. trump the only republican still running for president. he easily won west virginia, also nebraska. he adds at least 39 delegates to his total, but it'll end up being more than that once west virginia's convoluted process works itself out. trump needs 1,237 delegates to win the republican nomination. on the democratic side, it was just west virginia voting, and that was just fine for bernie sanders. he crushed hillary clinton there. even with his win, sanders barely chips away at clinton's delegate lead. if you include super delegate,
she's 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 is 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 class, 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 ahead. back to you guys. >> sara murray, thanks so much. bernie sanders scored a big victory in west virginia, but it barely moves the needle at all in the delegate race, where
hillary clinton has a big lead right now and not many states left. still, sanders vowing not to quit. he's continuing to challenge clinton, did so at a victory rally last night and also went after donald trump. cnn's brianna keilar has the latest. >> 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 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 delegates in all of the primary contests ahead. that is a huge undertaking, nearly impossible, john and christine. >> all right. brianna keilar setting it up so nicely for us this morning so we can discuss last night's primary
results with cnn political analyst, columnist for bloomberg view. josh rogin joins us again. and kristen holmes. nice to see you guys. let me start with you, kristen, about what exactly does the win in west virginia, if anything, mean for bernie sanders going forward? west virginia is west virginia. it is a very unique situation with some very high unemployment, some comments that hillary clinton made about coal miners working against her. it's almost a bull's eye for the donald trump world view and message. so what does sanders take away from that? >> at this point for bernie sanders, it's all about momentum. it's all about keeping in the race, keeping going, and keeping his supporters energized about him. that's exactly what this win does. it keeps him going. it keeps his supporters supporting him and showing we're going to stay in this until the convention, which is what he's said for months. we talked to voters there last night, supporters there last night who said that they weren't sure about the math.
they weren't sure he could get over the hump, but that all they were going to do was buckle down and keep supporting him and make sure that he got on to the next state, to the next state, and made it all the way to the convention. that's basically what this win does. it keeps him in the race, and it keeps him having reason to stay there. >> and the next state and the next state and the next state all look good for bernie sanders. that oregon we srally we saw hi at was in oregon. bernie sanders could win both those states, josh rogin. this has forced hillary clinton to do some things in this primary she might not have otherwise. what? >> right. so we see hillary clinton trying to balance between fighting bernie sanders on her left and donald trump on her right. the way she's done that is by rolling out a number of specific policy proposals that she thinks address the concerns of the bernie sanders voters in an effort to keep them in her camp if and when she does get the
nomination. what we see from the exit polls in west virginia is that she's failed to really move the needle on a lot of these voter polls. we're talking about working-class white voters, independents who interestingly in west virginia, a big portion said they would vote for trump possibly. we're talking about people who feel disadvantaged by trade, disadvantaged by globalization. so the clinton campaign strategy is to try to target those voters specifically without doing things that would take her too far away from the mainstream. it's kind of threading the needle. it's a tough maneuver to pull off. in the end, the donald trump theory of the case is specific policy proposals don't matter. what voters want is change. they want to run against the establishment. >> we heard from hillary clinton. she's going to propose this plan to cap childcare at 10% of a family's income. we heard from team clinton she's going to start talking about the policies that a president clinton would push for, policies that help women and help families, help working families.
so you're already seeing some of those start to come out. that's a big story line this morning. let's talk about the republicans now. marco rubio with this fascinating sit down with jake tapper. he must have known he was going to be asked, are you going to go into that voting booth and vote for the nominee donald trump. listen to that exchange. >> are you going to vote for him? >> well, as i said, i'm going to support the republican nominee. >> you're going to abide by your pledge, but are you going to vote for the republican nominee? >> i intend to support the republican nominee. >> including -- >> well, i'm not voting for hillary clinton. >> i have seen that exchange five or six times now. fascinating to watch his body language and his eyes. he can't look jake tapper in the eye. he doesn't say donald trump's name at all. >> i think this is to be expected. one of the things that speaker ryan said recently was that --
and this was earlier in the week when he told jake he couldn't stand behind donald trump just yet. one of the things he said was that the party was still divided. it was a very divisive primary season, even though it's over, it's very hard to come together. i think that's what we're seeing now. this is a tepid answer on marco rubio's part, saying, yes, i'm going to vote for him. he's saying, i'm still not for hillary clinton. he's not quite over the hump. he's not quite saying i endorse donald trump fully. i'm going to campaign for him. there were also rumors about senator rubio being vice president, which he quickly shot down. so it's kind of back and forthright now. i think because of the divisive nature of the primary, it is going to take a little bit of time to have people come together around donald trump. >> josh, is it just me, or is it a little too coincidental that paul ryan, marco rubio, and ted cruz are all dancing around within the period of about 72 hours how they feel about donald trump?
those three gentlemen all may be posturing for a possible election, say, in 2020. >> right. well, i think ted cruz will definitely run in 2020. my republican insiders tell me ted cruz will be running for president for the next 30 years. marco rubio may be in a different position after he leaves the senate. paul ryan is not only looking towards 2020, he's looking towards the future of his party and the ideals he thinks it represents. this is a guy who told his caucus privately that some of donald trump's ideas, especially his ban on muslims, could doom the republican party for a generation. that's what he believes. so what you see all of these guys doing is sort of refusing to concede the point that donald trump's vision for the republican party and vision for how it should be situated, especially when it comes to foreign policy, should become the gop standard. at the same time, the common ground is more on the economic stuff, the taxes. so they're trying to find areas of overlap without yielding the party's soul. >> paul ryan now says he's okay with donald trump's tax plan or tax statements, whatever they
may be today. that's interesting to hear. >> all right. josh rogin, kristen holmes, so nice to see both of you. have a wonderful wednesday, post-primary. west virginia has the second highest unemployment in the nation, 6.5%. the second lowest median household income. of those struggles reflected in the exit polling, 92% of democratic voters say they're worried about the economy, one of the highest totals we've seen this primarprimary season. more than half of those sided with bernie sanders. 53% say trade with other countries takes away u.s. jobs. that group of democratic voters breaking for sanders. 35% say trade creates jobs eveneve eveneve evenly split between clinton and sanders. it's a great point about what
does the dna of west virginia say about some of these states ahead and the race toward a general election for the democrats in particular. >> 11 minutes after the hour. a deadly knife attack starting inside a home and ended in a boston area mall. six people slashed, two killed. we have new information this morning. that's next. but it's actually a triumph of predictive analytics. because of optum. through population health data, they provide insights so doctors and hospitals can identify high-risk patients. like me... asthma... potential hospital visit. so now thanks to optum, this asthma thing's under control. gravity not so much. this is healthier, powered by optum. from health plans to providers to employers. we connect all parts of health care. healthier is here.

big wins for donald trump and bernie sanders overnight. trump cruising toward the official gop nomination and sanders complicates hillary clinton's pivot to a general election. we're breaking down the overnight election news, only the way cnn can. welcome back to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm john berman. this morning, donald trump and bernie sanders are waking up with big virginia wins. trump is the only guy still running for the republican nomination right now. he easily won west virginia, also nebraska. he adds at least 39 delegates to his total. it's going to end up being more than that, once virginia's
convoluted process works itself out. he's getting ever closer by the day. on the democratic side, bernie sanders won big in west virginia, the only state voting on the democratic side. he crushed hillary clinton there. you can see a 15-point win. even with that 15-point win, he barely chips away at hillary clinton's delegate lead. if you include super delegates, she's about 148 short right now of securing the majority for the nomination. even so, bernie 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. >> all right. this morning donald trump is looking to unite the republican party. he says he wants to put states in play in november that have gone to the democrats in recent elections. 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

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 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. >> reporter: late tuesday afternoon, local sheriffs as well as officials from the drug >> let us discuss what happened last night. josh rogin is with us. cnn white house producer kristen holmes is with us as well. josh, it's interesting. bernie sanders won big in west virginia. he may win big in the states that vote next week as well. kentucky, oregon, and some of the states that even vote on june 7th. but again, you know, we keep talking about how the math is on hillary clinton's side. and you heard some of that in an unusual -- i was surprised by it -- statement by the vice president of the united states who's been careful about how he
weighs in on this presidential race. listen to what joe biden told abc news. >> i feel confident hillary will be the nominee, and i feel confident she'll be the next president. >> josh, what do you make of what the vice president said right there? i mean, obviously joe biden says a lot of things, but this feels like the administration coming around, making it the official statement, and this is how it's going to go, get used to it. >> yeah, i think joe biden is simply being joe biden. he's saying what he honestly thinks. i agree with his analysis about the nomination. i mean, the sanders campaign has this message they're going to convince super delegates based on their momentum and success to switch sides and join them at the convention. that's not a real thing. the hillary clinton campaign has spent years and years locking up these super delegates. there's no real scenario where they're all going to jump ship at the last minute unless something drastic happens. and that's just the reality. so i think joe biden is pointing that out.
but bernie sanders' continued victories is having an effect on the clinton campaign. what the west virginia polls showed is people care about the economy and trustworthiness and honesty over electability. that's why bernie sanders keeps getting votes. that's the big problem hillary clinton has to solve. >> and kristen, team clinton has just rolled out a new policy proposal. this has been their big focus. look, we're going to talk about policy, we're not going to talk about personality and insults on the campaign trail as they're pivoting toward the general election. clinton has proposed this plan to cap childcare expenses to 10% of family income. this clearly one of those policy proposals meant to say, look, i'm a grown-up, i've got real ideas on how to fix things, not just complain about the economy. >> yeah, exactly. this has been the clinton campaign strategy from day one, which was to focus on the policy. we do know from her past election from 2008 that these are the things that work for her. it doesn't work for her to make
personal attacks. it doesn't work for her to go after a candidate. it works for her to focus on the policy and to say that what she's saying now, which is that i'm going to continue with my liberal ideas, that i'm established. as josh was saying, there are some problems here. the polling in west virginia is just one example of how this is the year of the outsider. people aren't looking for that establishment person. they aren't looking for the person with necessarily the most experience or any political experience at all. they're looking for the person who can shake up washington. now, that's just going to be a hurdle that the clinton campaign has to overcome in the upcoming primaries. >> i want to shift to the republican race, josh, if i can. we've seen paul ryan, ted cruz, marco rubio all struggling to varying degrees to figure out how they want to support donald trump or not support donald trump or endorse him or not endorse him or vote for him and not like it one bit. marco rubio had an interview with jake tapper yesterday. we've been playing sound about
how he will support him, but i wonder if we have the sound about marco rubio possibly being donald trump's vice presidential pick. rubio says, uh-uh, i don't want. one bit. listen. >> he's the presumptive nominee at this point. he'd be best served by having someone, not just by the way of vice presidential nominee, but active surrogates who agree with him on his issues. my differences with donald, both my reservations about his campaign and my policy differences with him, are well documented and remain. i think he would be best served by having people close to him in his campaign that are enthusiastic about the things he stands for. >> two things there. number one, that's a statement he's not enthusiastic about the things donald trump stands for. that should not be lost on anyone. the second thing is, donald trump's vice presidential pick, and he says he's down to five or six people, this is really important. this is the first chance anyone is going to get to see about how he makes decisions about the
possible presidency. >> right. i think marco rubio, after having campaigned against donald trump's policies for so long, simply cannot prostrate himself and make it seem like he all the sudden believes in all the things he's spent months saying he doesn't believe in, especially on national security stuff. there's no getting around that. when it comes to the vice presidential pick, donald trump has said he's going to choose a politician, someone who can do deals on capitol hill, but he has to choose someone from the side of the party that basically sees the world and the country the way he does. that's why you're looking at someone like a newt gingrich or someone. people in the hawkish part of the party, those are the people who are on the down swing. those are not the people who the voters seem to be leaning towards. it doesn't really make sense either for them or for donald trump to unite on that level at this time. >> all right. kristen holmes, josh rogin, nice
to see both of you this morning. thank you so much for getting up early for us. >> any time. >> thank you. investigators back at the home of prince, now examining the doctor who was treating him in the months before he died. we've got that next. some cash back cards are, shall we say, unnecessarily complex. limiting where you can earn bonus cash back... then those places change every few months... please. it's time you got the quicksilver card from capital one. quicksilver earns you unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere. doesn't get much simpler than that. what's in your wallet? so we know how to cover almost almoanything.hing, even a ufh2o.

they interviewed the people who were here. one of those people was a local doctor who actually showed up at the scene with test results for prince because he had seen prince twice before in april, including the day before prince died. we have reached out to the place where this doctor is employed. they say he's no longer employed there, but they are investigating this further. it's just a new wrinkle in the sad, sad story of how prince passed away at just 57 years of age. >> all right. stephanie elam for us in minnesota. time for an early start on your money. dow futures retreating after a nice rally yesterday. stock markets in europe and asia are mixed. oil is down. shares of staples and office depot halted overnight. expect them to plunge when they open after a judge blocked their $6.3 billion merger. the judge siding with the ftc, the federal trade commission, that a combined company would violate anti-trust laws.

stories. facebook admits the list is filtered, but only to a point. joining us to discuss is host of cnn's "reliable sources" brian stelter. what's going on here? >> we all think when we hear about trending stories it's all just decided by a computer algorithm. when you see that facebook trending stories box on the right-hand corner of the home page, it must be a computer deciding what's actually getting buzzed about, what's popular. in this case, facebook editors have a role to play as well, choosing what's going to show up in that box and what's not. there's good reasons for that. they take out spam and scams and hoaxes. but this allegation from the tech blog gizmodo, according to this anonymous former employee, is sometimes they were also taking out stories about ted cruz or glenn beck or other stories of interest to conservative readers. facebook has strongly denied this, but it's become a political football now. we heard yesteray from senator john thune in south dakota asking a long list of questions to mark zuckerberg about it. what he says here is, any
attempt by a neutral and inclusive social media platform to sensor or manipulate political discussion is an abuse of trust and inconsistent with the values of an open internet. he's not saying they did this for sure, but he's asking a lot of questions about it. i think in this election season in particular, this is a very hot topic. >> it's interesting because donald trump has criticized mark zuckerberg on his immigration positions, and mark zuckerberg has criticized donald trump. does this weigh in as well, where you have maybe conservative media or conservative followers saying, look, these big tech companies are up a run by a bunch of liberals? >> this is contributing to that narrative, which has been around for a while about facebook and twitter and other sites. there's not evidence of like a top-down system iic bias. in fact, executives have said the opposite. we need this site to be appealing to everybody. we need everybody's views to be represented so we can have the highest number of users. but that perception is out there. it could be a problem for facebook going forward. >> does facebook have to answer to john thune's questions?
could you have mark zuckerberg in front of a hearing on capitol hill? >> that's where this gets interesting. we were talking about cnn or "the wall street journal" or "the new york times" being asked a laundry list of questions from a senator, being asked to hand over records of editorial decisions. i think people would get uncomfortable and say what's the first amendment for if not to protect news organizations from the prying eyes of the senate. however, facebook is in this strained space. we don't know what it is exactly. it started as a way for kids at harvard to connect. now it's one of the biggest publishers in the whole world. it's a way a lot of us get our news. does it have those protections or not? i think it probably does, or they would say it does. but facebook says it's going to cooperate. it wants to help explain this. >> i think it's fascinating, the human hands, the human brains behind an algorithm that affects what so many people see and read. >> ultimately, the news feed is incredibly powerful. a billion people see it.
what i see is dependent on what this algorithm thinks i'll be interested in. sometimes it might mean liberal stories. sometimes it might mean conservative stories. i think what's happening here is there's a lot of curiosity about what facebook does. there's so little known about how it does what it does. a story like this remind us it's sort of like a black box. facebook is more opaque than we might realize. >> brian stelter, so nice to see you this morning. thanks for getting up early for us. let's get an early start on your money. big stock market rally yesterday. the dow's biggest jump since mid-february when stocks began that epic rebound. investors put aside concerns about disappointing corporate earnings and slowing global growth. the dow gaining 222 points, more than 1%. the nasdaq and s&p 500 showing similar gains. as for today, investors are taking a step back. dow futures off slightly. stock markets in europe down. shares in asia finishing mixed. oil down to about $44 a barrel.
watch disney today, brian ste stelter. the stock is down more than 5% in premarket trading. weakness in its tv business rattling investors. espn lost more subscribers. the maw vee biz was solid. there were blockbusters here. think "star wars: force awakens." something that got almost no love from analysts on the earnings call was ceo bob iger. they only wanted to talk about those weaknesses. new data shows there are 5.7 million open jobs in the u.s. it shows because the positions are open, they're having a hard time finding the right workers. in 2007, before the great recession, there were an average of 4.5 million job openings a month. last year there were 5.3 million open positions on average. now, the job skills gap a major reason why there are still high levels of part-time workers, high levels of underemployment in the u.s. economy. it's why many americans feel disgruntled about the economy. it's also a big part of why
wages have not increased much overall during the economic recovery. it's a really important story on this disgruntled economy front. what are we going to do about skills and education to adapt a work force. all right. this afternoon, a judge will rule on the mental competency of the suspect accused of killing three people last year at a colorado springs planned parenthood clinic. robert lewis deer was in court tuesday attending a hearing to determine whether he's fit to stand trial. police say when deer was captured, he told them he anticipated being thanked by aborted fetuses at heaven's gate. one of six baltimore police officer s facing charges in the death of freddie gray has decided to pass on a jury trial. officer edward niro opting for a bench trial instead, putting his fate in the hands of a judge. his trial is now set to begin on thursday. donald trump and bernie sanders win big in primary elections overnight. "new day" picks up our coverage now.

donald trump and bernie sanders winning last night's primary contest. sanders beating hillary clinton in west virginia a state she won eight years ago. sanders victory doesn't mean that much in terms of delegate math, but it does prolong the nomination fight, and also point to what could happen in a matchup between clinton and trump, who hammered clinton in west virginia, framing her thoughts about coal miners. >> so on the republican side, trump was the last man standing, and he easily won in west virginia and nebraska. now the focus remains on his big meeting tomorrow with house speaker paul ryan, and trump's former rivals, ted cruz and marco rubio, back in the spotlight and speaking out. we've got the 2016 race covered the way only cnn can. so let's begin with john berman breaking down last night's results and the delegate count. what do you have, john? >> good morning. donald trump finished first in a one-man race. what happened in west virginia, 76% of the vote there. nebraska, 61% of the vote.
of course, ted cruz and john kasich, they have dropped out. on the democratic side, bernie sanders with a big win in west virginia. the only states voting for the democrats, 15 points, but what does that mean in terms of delegates? not a heck of a lot. bernie sanders you can see, 60, hillary clinton just 5. anden the delegates there, donald trump will win at least 39 delegates. the number nearly doubles once west virginia works out its entire convoluted delegate process, happening in the coming weeks. look at total delegate numbers, donald trump, 1,119, marches closing closer to the 1,237. and as for democrats, over here, hillary clinton is now 148 away from the number she needs to get a majority that does include the super delegates, but, again, this will come down to super delegates and now the overwhelmingor
