1:01 am
shopping district. was it terrorism? good morning. i'm george howell. welcome to "early start." >> i'm christine romans. let's begin with politics. frustrated, upset, disappointed with donald trump. their candidate for president. staffers baffled over how to keep the candidate on message and out of trouble. sources revealing the campaign has reached out to chris christie, newt gingrich and other donald trump advisors for help to keep their nominee on message. >> what's truly frustrating here is you have a very talented businessman who might actually become a historic figure, but he has to say every morning, the only people i'm fighting with are hillary clinton and president obama. you have to win the argument. other than those two people, every time he talks about anyone else, it is an unforced fumbling, if you like, or
1:02 am
interception, as i would say. it is clearly a mistake. >> one adviser telling trump he seems surprised by the negative public reaction with the battle over the gold star muslim-american family. for now, he is heeding the advice reaching out to gold star families and turning his fire back on hillary clinton. >> we let isis take this position. it was hillary clinton that she should get an award from them as the founder of isis. that's what it was. that's what it was. her weakness. her weak policies. america's been, again, it's been humiliated in so many ways. wouldn't that be embarrassing to lose to crooked hillary clinton? >> cnn's jim acosta is with the
1:03 am
donald trump campaign in florida. >> reporter: george and christine, after a string of damaging days, donald trump trying to do damage control in the swing state of florida at the rally in jacksonville. he met with six gold star families to express the appreciation for the sacrifices he made. that is close as trump has come to an apology after the fight with the parents of the fallen muslim-american soldier. >> people, we have and i just visited with some incredible folks. i have no idea where they are sitting, but i know they have a good location. some really amazing gold star families. where are they? where are they? where are they sitting? oh, you're one. beautiful. where are they? there they are. incredible people.
1:04 am
incredible people. we have amazing people in our country. we have amazing leaders. >> reporter: trump only briefly addressed the questions of the state of the campaign after sources said staffers are from us frustrated by the candidate's ability to go off-message. he is not ready to endorse paul ryan. trump said his campaign is united. george and christine. >> jim, thank you. no doubt it is a tightrope walk for his running mate mike pence trying to smooth over the rift with the republican leaders. trump split with pence on paul ryan and his re-election battle. just days ago, trump sparked a furor with those in the party saying he is not ready to
1:05 am
endorse paul ryan. pence encouraged him to endorse speaker ryan. >> strongly endorse his re-election. he is a long-time friend. a strong conservative leader. i believe we need paul ryan in leadership in the congress of the united states to rebuild our military and strengthen our economy and to ensure we have the kind of leadership in the country that will make america great again. >> time for an early start on your money. donald trump took in $80 million in fund raising in july according to the campaign. the haul helped close the financial gap with hillary clinton. $80 million is an uptick from the june tally, he struggled to commit from the top donors. an area where hillary clinton has had more success. trump's campaign raised $16 million. that requires a $1 million
1:06 am
minimum contribution. 80% came from direct mail and digital donations. the campaign has $37 million cash on hand, but the number trails hillary clinton's campaign by $20 million. hillary clinton is on the campaign trail hitting battle ground states and slamming donald trump for his business practices. the democratic nominee will be in nevada. staffers say her speech will focus on how she plans to grow the middle class. wednesday, clinton ripped donald trump at a tie factory in a heavily hispanic blue collar suburb of denver. joe johns was there. >> reporter: christine and george, so much of hillary clinton's visit here has been about outsourcing jobs and the economy. she hit donald trump hard in commerce city, colorado. talking about the fact he outsources the manufacturer of the products he makes, including neck ties. hillary clinton even visited a
1:07 am
neck tie manufacturer here in colorado carrying with her a neck tie she said made by donald trump's company in china. >> i really would like him to explain why he paid chinese workers to make trump ties. this is one of them. it has his name on it, of course. and instead of deciding to make those ties right here in colorado, with a company like knotty. as i said over the past week, in many settings and factories in pennsylvania and ohio, i mean this because if he wants to make america great again, he should start by making things in america. >> reporter: the clinton campaign riding high with the $90 million fund raising haul in the month of july. a big 24-hour period the last day of the democratic national
1:08 am
convention. from here, hillary clinton going on to las vegas, nevada. george and christine. >> joe, thank you. new details on the administration's decision to send $400 million in cash on a plane to iran last january. the wall street journal reporting the justice department rejected the cash shipped at the same time four iranian hostages were released. according to the journal, the timing and manner of the distraction, disturbed justice officials warned it would look like a ransom payment. the obama administration denies any relation with the prisoner release and the payment. and another sign the just u.s. is growing frustrated with the regime and not fighting terrorism. the white house wants the government to be more aggressive against the taliban and its
1:09 am
affiliates. later today, president obama heads to the pentagon to meet with anti-isis team. this just days after launching air strikes against isis in libya. a terrorist scare in london. a knife-wielding man stabs six people, killing one, in a popular shopping area. we will go there next.
1:10 am
1:11 am
1:12 am
1:13 am
welcome back. a terrorist scare in the heart of london in the popular shopping center. a man with a knife went on a stabbing rampage. one woman is dead and five wounded. cnn is live in london. phil black is following the story for us. phil, thank you for being with us. at this point, police not ruling out terrorism. >> reporter: that's right, george. it was all over in minutes, it would seem. police say in the few minutes, a 19-year-old man with a knife was able to attack a group of people. injuring six of them here on the street behind me.
1:14 am
one of them a woman who authorities say they believe is in her 60s died on the foot path across the road as a result of the injuries. two others still in hospital receiving treatment. the 19-year-old man was detained quickly. police got here and used a taser to subdue him. he was taken into custody after receiving initial medical attention in hospital. he is now held in custody and held on suspicion of murder. police are keeping an open mind of the motive. they are not ruling out terrorism yet. they believe mental health issues played a significant role in this and that seems to be the focus of the case so far. the investigation is being led by homicide investigators. not the anti-terror police. the how and why this happened in a sense is, i wouldn't say, irrelevant, but it has happened in a city that is like so many european cities. significantly on edge because of
1:15 am
the many recent terror attacks across europe in recent weeks and months. the police have responded today by putting extra armed police on the streets especially those who were trained to deal with terror attacks. george. >> cnn international correspondent phil black live in london. phil, thank you. we'll stay in touch as the investigation continues. back here, a veteran in washington, d.c. transit officer charged with attempting to provide material support to isis. the first time a u.s. law enforcement officer is arrested for aiding terrorists. 36-year-old nicholas young tried to help isis with potential recruits. unaware he was actually communicating with undercover officers. cnn's evan perez has more. >> reporter: good morning. nicholas young has been a cop for the d.c. transit police for 13 years. for the past six years, the fbi has been keeping an eye on him. during that time, undercover
1:16 am
agents have been recording his conversatio conversations, including threats he made against federal agents. none of that crossed the line for charges until last week. he bought 22 gift cards for messaging apps. he is the first police officer in this country charged with providing material support to terrorists. there are confusing parts to his background. a muslim convert, but spoke of nazi sympathiy ies in his past. he dressed at jihadi john in the past. he had a neck tattoo of neo-nazis. the fbi arrested two of his associates. one zachary chesser. he is known for making threats against creators of the tv show "south park." another is almen khalifi.
1:17 am
the justice department says young is among more than 100 people arrested for supporting isis in the last couple years. he faces 20 years in prison if he is convicted. christine, george. >> disturbing case. evan, thank you. in florida's miami-dade county, spraying is set to start in a few hours covering a ten-square mile area where 15 cases of the zika virus were transmitted. the cdc warned pregnant women and their partners to avoid the wynwood area. that is where all but one zika cases was identified. free zika testing will be offered to all pregnant women across the state. the supreme court siding with the virginia school board in the fight over transgender rights. it blocks a lower court ruling to allow a transgender male student to use the women's
1:18 am
restroom. students made an appeal to exempt them from an obama administration. the schools nationwide must allow students to use the bathrooms identifying with their gender. and promise commutes 214 prisoners. he has now commuted sentences for a total of 562 inmates. that is more than the his nine predecessors combined. a manhunt in arizona to find the serial street shooter. the suspect recently struck last month shooting a dad and his 4-year-old son in their car. fortunately, they are okay. this is the ninth attack police connected to this gunman. he started the shooting spree last month and drives multiple vehicles. let's talk about the heavy
1:19 am
rains in the southwest bringing the possibility of flash flooding. let's go to meteorologist pedram javaheri with more. >> george and christine, good morning. the southwest, you think about the flooding across the region, 13 million people in the four corners states dealing with the flood washes and thunderstorms all over the place south of las vegas and nevada and northern arizona and the mogellan rim. you have afternoon heating and conv convexion and you have that heavy flooding. and we have a hurricane named earl in the yucatan peninsula. it will eventually move in to southern mexico with a second landfall across the region as a tropical depression. here's what we are looking at. dallas with the triple digit heat. st. louis with a cooling trend
1:20 am
in the 80s. in new york city, enjoy. comfortable in last couple days. it will warm up this weekend. guys. thank you, pedram. are you excited for the olympics? the opening ceremonies are one day away, but the games have already begun. we are live in rio next. ♪ ♪ ♪ geico motorcycle, great rates for great rides.

1:24 am
oh, the countdown to the rio olympics winding down. opening ceremony takes place tomorrow night. it appears many russian athletes may witness the lighting of the olympic cauldron from the stands. they could be banned from the
1:25 am
competition over doping. we have christina mcfarlane with us from rio. >> reporter: good morning, christine. there are some 200 russian athletes not knowing if they will take part in the games. the reason for the delay is the three-part process that has been under way for the past ten days. the sports governing bodies have been ruling on the eligibility for the russian athletes to compete in rio. we are hearing if they can compete. we have heard about a canoeist. some deemed ineligible have had a chance to appeal for the arbitration of sport. that is the highest law making decision making in sport. if they are deemed eligible, they can be put forward to an
1:26 am
ioc three-person panel to get a rubber stamp approval to compete at the olympic games. it is a process that is lengthy and it is the reason for the delay that we have been seeing with the russian athletes. we expect the final decision to come, however, in the form of a press release between now and the hours building up to the opening ceremony. as you can imagine, christine, a great deal of anxiety here for the russian athletes and other athletes they are competing against. this has huge implications for the medal count. russia came fourth in the london 2012 games. everyone here holding their breath to see what happens next. >> thank you so much for that. dark and early in rio. another hour it will be bright behind you. christina mcfarlane, thank you. many are asking if donald trump's campaign can be saved. the gop scrambles to hit the

1:31 am
the gop reaching a new level of frustration with donald trump. upset over the nominee's fight over anyone who is not hillary clinton or president obama. hillary clinton attacking donald trump on the economy and his business practices where she says donald trump is costing americans jobs. a deadly terror scare in london. six people stabbed in a popular shopping districts. welcome back to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm george howell. it is 4:31. frustration among republican leaders upset and disappear pointed with their presidential candidate. in the trump campaign, staffers are baffled how to keep trump on message and out of trouble. the campaign has reached out to
1:32 am
chris christie and newt gingrich and other trump advisors looking for help to keep their nominee on the rails. >> what's truly frustrating here is you have a very talented businessman who might actually become a historic figure, but he has to -- every morning he has to say the only two people i'm fighting with are hillary clinton and obama. you have to win the argument of whether or not this has been good. other than those two people, every time he talks about anyone else, it is an unforced fumble, if you like or interception, as i would have said. it is clearly a mistake. >> one adviser tells cnn trump himself seems surprised by the negative public reaction to the battle with the gold star family of the muslim-american soldier. he is taking advice of leaders
1:33 am
reaching out to other gold star families and fighting back against hillary clinton. >> we let isis take this position. it was hillary clinton, she should get an award as the founder of isis. that's what it was. that's what it was. her weakness. her weak policies. america's been again humiliated in so many ways. wouldn't that be embarrassing to lose to crooked hillary clinton? that would be terrible. >> our own jim acosta has the latest for us from florida on the trump campaign. >> reporter: george and christine, trump tried to do damage control in the swing state of florida at trally in
1:34 am
jacksonville. he met with six gold star families. that is as close as he has come to an apology after the confrontation of the family of the muslim-american soldier. here is what he had to say to the crowd in florida. >> speaking of our best, people, we have and i just visited with some incredible folks. i have no idea where they are sitting, but i know they have a good location. some really amazing gold star families. where are they? where are they? where are they sitting? oh, you're one. beautiful. where are they? there they are. incredible people. incredible people. we have amazing people in our country. we have amazing leaders. >> reporter: trump only briefly
1:35 am
addressed the questions of the state of the campaign after sources said staffers are frustrated by his tendency to go off message and he is not ready to endorse paul ryan in the battle for re-election. trump told a crowd here in florida that his campaign is united. >> thank you, jim. let's break down the united party behind donald trump. what others are calling a breakdown in the republican party. we have brian stelter here with us. i want to play something here in florida. he is clearly hearing the criticism on the record and off the record. you heard newt gingrich on fox news. you have to stop talking about everybody else and focus on hillary clinton and barack obama. trump trying to say we are united. i am united. listen. >> so i just wanted to tell you
1:36 am
the campaign is doing really well. it has never been so well united. we started on june 16th. i would say right now it's the best in terms of being united that it's been since we began. we are doing incredibly well. >> all signs point to not well. >> we can say that is not true. you can see why trump is saying it. the poll with clinton with a ten--point lead. the on the record from party leaders and supporters of trump. almost all of them saying this man that's reset and reshape his campaign. trump is hearing and seeing and watching that. he is having to reassure people he has it under control. i think he is trying to do that through that sound bite. although there are signs of fracturing. >> let's talk about the master of the message and the guy who is cleaning up the message. mike pence.
1:37 am
when it comes to the rift, brian, with the speaker of the house. listen to what mike pence had to say endorsing the speaker when trump is not. >> i'm strongly supporting paul ryan. strongly endorse his re-election. he is a long-time friend and conservative leader. i believe we need paul ryan in leadership in the congress of the united states. >> so just the optics of that. the top of the ticket not endorsing. the vp doing so. >> you could say they get the best of both worlds. donald trump is aligned with his base and republican voters who distrust paul line. you have mike pence behind him. the less optimistic argument is donald trump and pence cannot come together on the basic issues on the ticket. can you imagine if hillary clinton and tim kaine
1:38 am
disagreeing like this? a real tension we have seen time and time against with pence and trump on several issues. again, maybe that is not necessarily a bad thing right now because they are able to have it both ways. >> can we talk about ties made in china? hillary clinton making the economic point that donald trump cost american jobs because he makes ties in china. she was standing in a tie shop in colorado. the optics of it interesting. she was holding up one of his ties. this line has not hurt him yet. we have known for a long time that he makes his products overseas. he said and deflected rather well by saying, look. it is your stupid trade policies to make it advantageous overseas. why not get tough and american manufacturers can make stuff in america. do you think as we fade away
1:39 am
from the khan controversy, this is a powerful message? >> it is not the message that causes voters to answer differently. that's why i mentioned what we are seeing from his base. we are seeing remarkable support and strength as we have for a year among the republican base in support of trump. this current state of panic is among the republican thought leaders and establishment figures and elites. there is a disconnect. what we have seen with the trump controversy is the disconnect with the base and elites of the party. the base of the party i don't think will be swayed by hillary clinton talking about where trump makes ties. fundamentally, donald trump's challenge is how he persuades new people to come into his tent. we are not seeing him doing that right now. all of the data in the fox poll and cnn poll earlier this week shows how difficult it has been for him to convert anyone who is on the fence to bring them over to his side. ultimately that is what we hear
1:40 am
from the newt gingrich of the world. fox news is a war room for donald trump giving him free advice all day long. especially on programs like sean hannity's last night. the message is stop talking about your self and talk about hillary clinton. we will see if he tunes in to that. he did that yesterday. can he keep it going every day? >> i want to talk about video that has been published by "the new york times." it includes what you hear. comments heard at donald trump rallies. let's talk about it here after we listen to it on the other side. >> build that wall! build that wall! >> i'm sure that paper work comes in spanish. >> if you don't speak english and don't contribute, get out. >> the largest tax cut. >> hillary clinton needs to get
1:41 am
her ass spanked. >> so again, that piece of editorial pushed out by "the new york times." it includes racial slurs and derogatory comments. the question is is it fair from the media perspective? your thoughts? >> i think the trump campaign will try to make a video like this involving clinton's rallies. they won't find the same invective. at the trump rally, there are many kind and gentle people. there are many angry people. the reason why the times produced this video is because we have not seen this before. for example, in 2008 or in 2012. we did not see on the campaign trail the same degree of vitriol and highly personal and hostile comments in some cases, racial
1:42 am
slurs and gendered comments. "the new york times" is so to something here. many journalists would say the same thing. there is also that danger of picking up the wrong side brush and painting too broadly. if donald trump doesn't respond to the video, he will say "the times" is trying to attack all of his supporters as highlighting a few of them. it plays into donald trump's war with the media. this will enrage and tick off his supporters out there. it is effective for him. >> some say it is picking bad apples. mainstream media trying to find a few bad apples and turning it around. >> what trump is saying on stage is causing the hostile reactions. it is about the man on stage and triggering the reactions from the crowd. that is why the video mattered.
1:43 am
>> and to point out, the video is coming from people in the crowds versus the reporters who are kept in a certain area. that is part of the video. thank you. >> thanks, brian. time for an early start on your money. stocks snapped a seven-day losing streak with a rally in oil. a blah earning season. now the page turns to the big government jobs report tomorrow morning. donald trump giving concrete details on how he would grow the economy if elected president. it is literally concrete. he vows to out spend hillary clinton fixing america's roads and bridges. trump told fox news he will double the $275 billion infrastructure plan. a move praised by experts on both sides of the aisle. a lot of economists like a infrastructure build especially with interest rates low. it is a rare point of agreement with the candidates. here is what we know about the plans for your money. hillary clinton wants to raise the minimum wage and make state universities debt free and tax people making $1 million a year
1:44 am
or more at a 30% rate. trump wants to cut taxes across the board, including for the very wealthy and companies. he wants to impose high tariffs on trade. something that could cause a trade war. we are following the deadly terror scare in london. a man with a knife stabs six people at a popular shopping area. the newest details we are learning next. "ow..." "are you okay?" "yeah, i just got charged for my credit monitoring. that's how i know it"s working." "ah. you know you can go on creditkarma.com and check it out there. it's completely free." "really?" "yeah" "oh, that didn't hurt at all." "yeah, completely painless." "credit karma. give yourself some credit." be the you who doesn't cover your moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

a terror scare in the heart of london. a man with a knife going on a stabbing rampage in a popular shopping center last night. one woman dead and five wounded. one wounded is an american. police are not ruling out terrorism. cnn's phil black is joining us from the scene of the stabbings in london. some officials suggesting that
1:49 am
mental illness is a factor they are investigating. what can you tell us? >> reporter: christine, the police are careful with the language they are using through the night. they made it clear early on that they believe mental health paid a significant role in what took place here. police said they were keeping an open mind. they had not rule out terrorism. the police focused on the mental health issues. that is the line of inquiry. they did not mention terrorism at all. it all took place behind me. just a few minutes where a 19-year-old man with a knife began that attacking people and struck six people with a knife. a woman in her 60s is where she died as a result of her injuries. two other people receiving treatment in hospital because of the injuries they sustained. the police responded quickly. they chose not to use guns, but
1:50 am
brought this man down using a taser. he received medical treatment, but he is also being held in custody on is suspicion of murder. not a terror charge. this investigation is led by homicide police. it does all point to the likelihood the police believe there may not be a terror link here. they are not saying so explicitly yet. whatever the motive, though, no doubt, this was a terrible scary thing to happen in central london on a wednesday night. so the authorities here is a they are responding by putting more armed police, those specially trained to deal with live terror incidents. they are patrolling central london today. not to concern people, they say, but to reassure people that measures are being taken to protect them. >> phil black in london. keep us posted on developments of the story. back here in the united states, florida's miami-dade county aerial spraying is set to
1:51 am
start a few hours from now covering a ten-square mile area where officials confirmed 15 cases of the zika virus trans t transmitted by mosquitoes. pregnant women and their partners are to avoid traveling to the wynwood area. the zika virus can cause severe birth defects. florida's governor rick scott says free zika testing will be offered to all pregnant women across the state. in the fight over transgender rights, the supreme court is siding with the school board in virginia. the ruling temporarily blocks a lower court decision to allow a transgender male high school student to use the women's restroom in september. school officials made an emergency appeal to exempt them from the obama administration edict. 51 minutes past the hour. most millennials fear they are

the countdown to the rio olympics is almost over. the opening ceremony takes place tomorrow night, but appears many russian athletes may witness the light of the cauldron from the stands. they could be banned over the issues of doping. we have cnn's christina mcfarlane with more from rio. >> reporter: it is staggering that some 200 athletes don't know if they will compete here in rio. this delay is due to a three-part process we have seen unfolding. let's talk you through it briefly. the sports governing bodies have
1:57 am
