tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN December 5, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PST
investigation of the blaze of the converted weaarehouse that killed at least 33 people. criminal investigators are on the scene looking for arson or criminal negligence. at least eight victims have been identified. officials expect the death toll to rise. cnn's stephanie elam has the latest from oakland. >> reporter: officials here saying it is too early to determine the cause of the fire. what they have said is they have gone through the building and broken it up into quads. they found victims in all four quads of the building. no one place the victims were found. some of the people that lost their lives were juveniles. 17-year-olds. early adults in their 20s. they are also in touch with embassies for people who were from other countries that also lost their lives in the fire. at this point, they have reached out to some of the families, but still working to identify some
of the people who died here. that's because they are saying some people, it is evident who they are, they can match it with fingerprints. with others, there is nothing to identify, they are having to get some source of dna. they are asking family members if you think you lost someone here to preserve a toothbrush and preserve a hair brush and put it in a paper bag and hold on to it so they can get to them. at this point, they are saying they would not be surprised if they do expect that the number of people who died here in the oakland fire will increase. >> stephanie, thank you. fireworks lighting up the night sky in north dakota. protesters celebrating a federal government decision to reroute the oil pipeline that was set to be built under lake oahe under the missouri river. supporters fear a leak could cause environmental damage. the protesters say they are
worried that the incoming trump administration could reverse their victory. we have cnn's sara sidner with the latest. >> reporter: celebrations, tears of joy, chanting and drumming. that's what the initial reaction was for the folks here when they found out the army corps of engineers was going to stop the pipeline by asking the dakota access pipeline to be rerouted away from the flashpoint here. rerouted and kept from going under neethe missouri river. it is a big victory for the standing rock sioux and all of the people who have been here for many months trying to stop this pipeline from potentially going under the water and potentially leaking. we have also heard from the tribe is they are concerned this may not be permanent depending on which administration is in place and worried about donald trump's role in all of this when he takes the presidency.
>> we need to stay here. everybody here needs to stay here until we know exactly the legal ramifications of what took place today. as far as, you know, into the future, there's not guarantee this will stand. if president-elect trump could override what happened today on january 20th and grant the easement, we are in for a world of hurt. >> reporter: we are hearing that from other members of the tribe. although this is a victory and people feel relief, there is worry about what happens next. this camp is filling up and no one seems to be leaving. >> sara, thank you. the corporations building the dakota pipeline say the federal government decision changes nothing. the company released a statement calling the decision purely political and they say fully expect to complete construction of the pipeline without any additional rerouting in and
around lake oahe. a man arrested after wielding assault rifle in a washington state pizza restaurant. edgar madison welsh telling police he was conducting a probe of the pizza gate. that's a debunked conspiracy theory that claims hillary clinton and john podesta were involved in a child sex scandal. overnight, the false accusations were denouncedenounced. just a short time ago, we got reaction from china to the provocative tweet storm from donald trump. two days after the phone call up ending decades of diplomacy in china. trump tweeted this, did china ask us if it was okay to devalue their currency making it hard for our companies to compete?
l heavily tax our products going into their country or build a massive military complex in the south china sea? i don't think so. joining us from beijing is ye alexandra field. are you getting any indication there could be retaliation down the line? >> reporter: we don't know what president-elect trump intended to illicit in taking on beijing on the twitter account. the spokesperson for the ministry of foreign affairs says china won't speculate what motivated his actions or transition team's actions. the tweets did not trigger an immediate response from officials here in beijing. they discussed the matters when asked during the briefing held by the foreign affairs.
they feel the importance of upholding the bilateral relationship with the u.s. and china and the economic trade relationship with the two countries. the spokesperson went on to say china doesn't comment on the style or personality of foreign politici politician, but policy. the question is what is the policy we will see under a trump administration? how will the longstanding u.s. and china policy shift? there have been signs and signals. the tough rhetoric he took toward beijing on the campaign trail and the tweets are being parsed in state media. the op-ed says here in china, trump has two faces. on the one hand, he is bluffing and on the other, he has no plan to overturn international relationships. at this point, the way that china is receiving the actions. the protocol breaking the taiwan
president phone call. >> thank you, alexandra field. donald trump is taking unique approach to zeroing in on a new secretary of state. instead of narrowing the field of candidates, he is expanding it. insiders telling cnn that mitt romney and rudy giuliani are under consideration and david petraeus also remains a top hun governor of utah, is in the mi as well. the president-elect's top aides say the search is widening. let's get more from ryan nobles. >> reporter: it appears that president-elect trump is expecting the field. listen to what his advisor kellyanne conway said about the search this weekend. >> it is fortunate to have interests among serious men and
women who all of whom need to understand that their first responsibility as secretary of state would be to implement and adhere to the america first foreign policy and loyal to his view of the world. >> reporter: now among the names that trump is considering is the former governor of utah. jon huntsman. a former candidate for president and the ambassador to china in the obama administration. this is one of a number of names that the president-elect is considering. the president-elect also making some news about signature policy proposals when he takes over as president. that is how he handles companies that move jobs overseas. promising to reduce taxes and regulations on these companies, but also bound to penalize
companies that move jobs out of the united states. including a 35% tariff on goods coming into the united states for these companies. of course, this is not something the president-elect can do on his own. he will need congressional support. it will be a key issue to look for in the incoming administration. ryan, thank you. we are another week closer to inauguration day. it seems not much closer to knowing what kind of president donald trump will be or are we? let's ask eugene scott. he is joining us live from washington. let's forg thanks for getting up early with us sdplch us. >> thank you. >> we saw donald trump put china in the send of the conversation with the president of taiwan and tweeting about it afterwards. insulting china not once, but
twice. you saw mike pence going on "meet the press" and defending trump's actions. listen to this. >> i think the conversation that happened this weekend with the president of taiwan was a courtesy call. it is one of more than 50 telephone calls that the president-elect has taken from and made to world leaders. president-elect trump takes a courtesy call from the democratically elected president of taiwan and it becomes something of the thing in the media. i think most americans and most leaders around the world, know this for what it was sdplch. >> eugene, are we making too much of the conversation with world leaders? >> we can do a better job explaining to viewers why this was untraditional and why it would be a problem if it would be. i think what is interesting is this shouldn't be that big of a
surprise. the affect this could have on the relationship with china considering how much trump has criticized china throughout his campaign. he made it clear he has a problem with the economic situation the chinese have put america and american voters and companies in. i would not be shocked if he is using this conversation as a bargaining point that he resurfaces to try to make deals with whine with china. >> we should not be surprised. he more than alluded to this on the campaign trail. trade was an issue for him. he is making good on his campaign promises. >> that is what it seems like. we have seen more of that recently within the last 24 hours when he reemphasized the problems with china and trade on twitter. >> let's move on to choice for secretary of state. that list is getting longer with
the addition of jon huntsman. many may not know the background. jon huntsman is a cousin, three times or twice removed from mitt romney. the two arrive als. puths jon huntsman on the list is interesting. >> i think it is strategic. it seems a surprise. he ran for president in 2012. he is known for not being as conservative as many others like rudy giuliani and newt gingrich. i know his name is no longer in the mix. i know people forget. huntsman is the ambassador to china. he is knowledgeable to the issues related to trade with china and the u.s. that is something important and will be useful to donald trump. >> eugene scott, thank you for your spperspective.

welcome back. austria has a new president. alexander van der bellen defeating norbert hofer. hofer campaigned on anti-immigration austria first platform. the race was watched lo eed clo across europe. germany's vice chancellor calling the outcome a clear victory for good sense. a crushing setback for the establishment in italy. prime minister matteo renzi confirming he will resign today after suffering a resounding defeat in a referendum sunday. renzi's plan to reform the constitution and revive the economy was rejected by nearly
60% of voters there. let's go live to milan and bring in nina dos santos. it is interesting the referendum he pushed initially and then it back fired leading to him resigning. >> reporter: the only thing that seems to be certain around here is uncertainty itself. that is the voice you hear on the streets of milan, alison. david cameron fell on his sword after calling on one in the united kingdom and the brexit and united kingdom with the plans to stream line the political system and end the gridlock that plagued italy for years. uncertainty against the financial capital in milan. i'm standing outside the stock exchange where shares are down 1% to 2%. that is not the heavy fall they are expecting because some of
the news was priced in. across the rest of europe, people are managing despite the negligent territory, the ftse is up and euro did hit a 20-year low against the u.s. dollar. that is coming up. we do have a country that has big questions to ask itself. how will it solve the banking crisis and who will lead it from here as renzi resigns this afternoon. >> with renzi resigning, what happens next with the political future in italy? >> reporter: right. renzi will hand in resignation at 2:00 p.m. local time to the president. the president can decide if he wants to accept the resignation or send renzi back to get the cabinet and budget through before calling on a general
election in 2018. another option is snap elections. that could propel populous movement to the front of politicians. he demanded a vote within a week. another option is have a caretaker government and take government to people who are not politicians to hold things together until the elections come in a year and a half. >> so much uncertainty for italy. thank you, nina dos santos. a terrifying landing for passengers in san antonio. the pilot declaring an in-flight emergency because of issues with his landing gear. that is next on "early start." or an airpor.. ia ...surface pro's perfect. fast and portable but also light. you don't do this 14 hours a day, 7 days a week... ...if you don't feel it in your heart.

china on twitter this morning. china responds. welcome to "early start." i'm alison kosik. it is 30 minutes past the hour. new information on the deadly blaze in oakland, california. the warehouse fire killed 33 people there to attend a dance party. criminal investigators are on the scene looking for signs of arson or criminal negligence. at least eight victims have now been identified. officials say they expect the death toll to rise. cnn's stephanie elam has the latest from oakland. >> reporter: officials saying it is too early to determine the cause of fire. they have said they have gone through the building and broken it up to quads. they found victims in all four quads of the building. no one place the victims were found. they are saying some of the people that lost their lives
were juveniles and some in the 20s and 30s. they are also in touch with embassies for people from other countries that also lost their lives in the fire. at this point, they reached out to some of the families, but still working to identify some of the people who died here. that's because some people, it is evident who they are, if they had identification on them, they can match with fingerprints. with others, they have to get some source of dna. they are asking family members if you think you lost someone here, preserve a toothbrush or hair brush and put it in a clean paper bag and hold on to it so they can get to them. at this point, they are saying they would not be surprised if they do expect that the number of people who died in the oakland fire will increase. >> stephanie, thank you. overnight, fireworks lighting up the night sky over north dakota. thousands of protesters celebrating a federal government
decision to reroute a proposed oil pipeline that was set to be built under lake oahe on the missouri river. members of the standing rock sioux tribe fear a leak to cause environmental damage. the protesters are worried that the incoming trump administration could reverse their victory. cnn's sara sidner has the latest from the protest site. >> reporter: celebrations, tears of joy, chanting and drumming. that's what the initial reaction was when the folks here that the army corps of engineers was going to stop the pipeline by asking the dakota access pipeline to be rerouted away from the thing that has caused the flashpoint here. rerouted and kept from going under the missouri river. it is a big victory for the standing rock sioux and all of the people who have been here many months trying to stop this pipeline from potentially going
under the water and one day leaking. however, what we have also heard from the tribe is that they are concerned this may not be permanent depending on which administration is in place and worried about trump's role in all of this when he takes the presidency. >> we need to stay here. everybody here needs to stay here until we know exactly the legal ramifications of what took place today. as far as, you know, into the future, there's no guarantee this will stand. if president-elect trump could override what happened on january 20th and grant the easement, we are in for a world of hurt. nothing has changed for us. >> reporter: we are hearing that from other members of the tribe that although this is truly a victory and people feel relief, there is worry about what happens next. right now, this camp is filling up and no one seems to be leaving. >> thank you, sara sidner.
the corporations say the federal government decision changes nothing. overnight the company released a statement calling the decision quote purely political and saying they fully expect to complete construction of the pipeline without any additional rerouting in and around lake oahe. just a short time ago we got the first reaction from china to the tweet storm from donald trump. two days after his controversial phone call with china, trump tweeted this. did china ask us if it was okay to devalue their currency making it hard for our companies to compete? heavily tax our products into their country? the u.s. doesn't tax them. or to build a massive military complex in the middle of the south china sea? i don't think so. moments ago, china responded diplomatically. joining us from beijing is alexandra field.
china was diplomatic, but what did china say? >> reporter: alison, they did not illicit response to the tweets. the minister for foreign affairs stopped by saying reaffirming the bilateral relationship with the u.s. and china, and under scoring what he was calling the mutual trade benefits the two countries enjoy as a result of the relationship. he went on to say that china is not in the habit of speculating the actions of president-elect trump or his transition team. he went on to say that china doesn't comment on the personalities or styles of foreign politicians. instead, he said china comments on policy. that begs the question, what is the policy and will the chinese and u.s. policy change? there was a phone call with the taiwan president that broke protocol which was met with
concern in beijing. the tweets adding to the concern. we know that trump took a hard line against beijing on the campaign trail. the question here in china is whether this is just tough talk that appeals to president-elect trump's base or if it is a signal of real change to come in january. alison. >> trump let us know he would take aim at china and he is doing just that. cnn's alexandra field. thank you. donald trump is taking unique approach to zeroing in on a new secretary of state. instead of narrowing the field of candidates, he is expanding it. mitt romney and rudy giuliani are still under consideration and david petraeus is also a top contender. now jon huntsman, former governor of utah is reportedly in the mix. the top aide says the search is widening. we have more from ryan nobles.
>> reporter: it appears donald trump is expanding the field. listen to what kellyanne conway said about the search this weekend. >> among serious men and women who all of whom need to understand that their first responsibility as secretary of state would be to implement and adhere to the president-elect trump's america first foreign policy and be loyal to his view of the world. >> reporter: among the names that trump is considering is jon huntsman. a former candidate for president and ambassador to china in the obama administration. huntsman not the frontrunner, but donald trump is considering. and the president-elect making news about the signature policy proposal is how trump will handle companies that move jobs
overseas. trump laid out economic policy agenda for companies in the united states. promising to reduce taxes and regulations on the companies, but bound to penalize companies who move jobs out of the united states. including a 35% tariff on goods coming into the united states for these companies. this is not something the president-elect can do on his own. he will need congressional support. it will be a key issue to look for in the trump administration. >> ryan nobles, thank you. we are another week closer to inauguration day. it seems not much closer to knowing what kind of president trump will be. let's ask eugene scott. he joins us live from washington. good morning, eugene. >> good morning. >> we watched donald trump cause an uproar on friday with the phone call with the president of taiwan and over the weekend tweeting about the call and tweeting about china's policies. the phone call flying in the
face of u.s. policy where taiwan is not recognized as its own country and not recognized by the u.s. as its own country or recognized by china as its own country. listen to what mike pence said over the weekend. >> i think the conversation that happened over the weekend with the president of taiwan was a courtesy call. one of 50 calls president-elect has taken from and made to world leaders. president-elect trump takes a courtesy call from the democrat leader of taiwan gets this notoriety. >> what do you think, eugene? was it a rookie mistake or cal calculated move? >> it is still to be seen. it was not a surprise.
especially supporters of his. he has been very vocal and critical of china related to trade policies since the early days of the campaign. so there is thought this could be a move to make the deals that he promised to make that he hopes benefit u.s. voters. >> this could be one of the things he is a disrupter and this could be what he campaigned for. >> very much so. >> let's more on to something lighter. i know donald trump went to a party on long island. apparently he caught "saturday night live" over the weekend. he tweeted this. just tried to watch "saturday night live" unwatchable. the baldwin impersonation can't get any worse. sad. let's watch a bit of the program. >> kellyanne, i just retweeted
the best tweet. wow, what a great, smart tweet. >> mr. trump, we're in a security briefing. >> i know, but this could not wait. it was from a young man named seth. he is 16. he's in high school. i really did retweet him. seriously. this is real. >> he really did do this. >> by the way, alec baldwin tweeting back to donald trump saying release your tax returns and i'll stop. ha. i don't know. i don't know how are his base voters viewing the fact that donald trump continues to tweet about "snl" if he's in office? >> i think it is important to remember just about a year ago, donald trump was hosting "saturday night live." it is fascinating to see where this relationship has gone over the last 12 months. i think donald trump's criticizing "saturday night l e live" with his behavase reinfor
his complaints. that some cities do not get them and their values. if you pay attention more to the sketches, they were not criticizing those base supporters. they were criticizing donald trump and the things he chooses to prioritize. security briefings are not as high of a priority as they have for previous president-elects. whether or not his campaign makes a change remains to be seen. it is not all for the criticism on "saturday night live." >> it feels like he is already in office with headlines every day. eugene scott, thank you. >> thank you. sunday night football. seahawks cruising to a victory over the carolina panthers, but it comes at a price. hines ward has the bleacher report next.
