2:00 am
in the east. in hours, president trump will hold a news conference alongside french president emmanuel macron. it will be reporters' first chance to question him publicly since his son met with a russian lawyer hoping to get dirt on hillary clinton provided by the russian government. in advance of the conference, trump tells reuters he was unaware of the meeting don jr. agreed to, only learning about it a couple of days ago. >> a republican source says the president has privately expressed dismay his son agreed to the meeting but believes don jr. did nothing illegal. the source also says the president is annoyed the story has become a distraction from the overseas trip last week to poland and germany. a trip the white house sees as a success. so how will all this affect the president's trip to france? cnn's melissa bell joining us from paris. good morning to you where it is 11:00 a.m. what's on the agenda here, melissa? >> reporter: the president has
2:01 am
now been in paris for a couple of hours. we have yet to see him. he's expected at the american embassy in half an hour, just across the road from here. he'll meet with embassy officials, the ambassador. also 14th of july officials with whom he'll be having a closed lunch. after that, we should get a chance to see him. he'll be received by emmanuel macron for what would be a ve military reception. a reminder that it was 100 years ago that america entered the first world war. the man who led allied troops on the western front in that war. the two men will head off for private meetings. then that press conference that everyone is so keen to get to because it's been so many days since the american press has been waiting to hear from donald trump himself. then the first ladies will join the presidents for a dinner at
2:02 am
the eiffel tower. already we have seen melania. she's been visiting with sick children at a children's hospital here in paris the two couples will be dining tonight on the eiffel tower, restaurant at the foot of the eiffel tower, before preparing for tomorrow's ceremony which they'll be watching from here. the 14th of july p-- military parade. there are dozens of police vans making sure the area is secured. 11,000 extra policemen have been put on call the next couple of days to ensure the security is as tight as it needs to be. >> melissa bell live for us in france. thank you very much. interesting dynamic. she mentions the first ladies here. one being 64, that's macron's wife. the other, 47, the 71-year-old trump's wife. >> both seen as fashion icons at home. >> yes. the optics of the next 24 to 48 hours will be fascinating. our cnn politics reporter in
2:03 am
washington and analyst and historian at professor at princeton. good morning to both of you. after basically being behind closed doors for four days, his second now european trip in a week, and the president will face reporters. the president will face reporters in just a few hours. he did speak with reuters late yesterday where he did not condemn that meeting with his son, don jr., and someone purporting to be -- who he thought was an agent of the russian government, an attorney for the russians. this is what he says -- "i think many people would have held that meeting. you have to understand when that took place, this was before russia fever. there was no russia fever back then. that was at the beginning of the campaign more or less. there was no russia fever." the president casting it in terms of the timing of when this was. he goes on that uc about sort of the coordination here -- goes on to talk about the sort of coordination here. dumbest thing i've ever heard.
2:04 am
there was no coordination. this was a hoax. this was made up by the democrats. this is the greatest country in hear the day after they get their ass kicked and say, huh, what's our excuse? this president is fighting and holding on to the idea that there's nothing there there. >> yeah. and keep in mind, every time trump hears anything about russia and meddling in the 2016 election, what he's actually hearing in his own ears is some sort of question of the legitimacy of his presidency. and he so far hasn't been able to separate out that sort of defensive posture from questions about what actually went down. and you know, whether the russian government was, in fact, trying to help him. there's definitely a posture from the white house that if you start to talk about it in those terms, you open the door to the questioning of the legitimacy of the election, whether or not that's actually what people are after. so you see the defensive crouch in all of his responses to these types of questions.
2:05 am
at a certain level, i don't know what we expect him to say about his son, one of his own children. he's probably going to defend them until the end, no matter what. that's something that you can understand as a father. so certainly coming out swinging, feeling as if he's on attack, is absolutely what we see here. >> that press conference just about an hour away. we'll, of course, bring it to you live. what will the president say still very much up for debate. i think that reuters interview did give you a hint. here's what lindsey graham clearly wants the president to say about the interaction with the russians. listen to this interaction between lindsey graham and the nominee to run the fbi related to russian interference. >> let me ask you this -- if i got a call from somebody saying the russian government wants to help lindsey graham get re-elected, they've got dirt on lindsey graham's opponent, should i take that meeting? >> senator, i would think you'd want to consult with some good legal advisers before you did that. >> so the answer is should i
2:06 am
call the fbi. >> i think it would be wise to let the fbi know -- >> the director of the fbi -- here's what i want you to tell every politician -- if you get a call from somebody suggesting that a foreign government wants to help you by dispaurjing your opponent, tell -- disparaging your opponent, tell us all to call the fbi. >> to the members of this committ committee, any threat to interfere with our electio with any nation state or non-state actor is the kind of thing the fbi would want to know. >> that's the harshest terms we've heard, julian zelezer. do we expect the president to say anything like what his fbi director said? >> easy answer, no. i think the president has been very consistent on this. he's not making those kind of statements. he's dismissing the entire intervention in the election, investigation as a hoax, or as
2:07 am
fake news. there's no reason to think he'll do anything other than this. this is his strategy. i think this is his genuine response to the crisis. there's no indication it will change. what you see are nominees, members of congress, trying to work around this -- especially when the last round of information came from the president's family, from his son, not anyone else. it was his emails. >> it's clear the president doesn't accept the central premise that putin favored trump over hillary clinton. he said as much in an interview with pat robertson yesterday. listen. >>. >> if hillary had won, our 14th of july would be decimated. our energy would be much more expensive. that's what putin doesn't like about me. that's why i say, why would he want me? from day one i wanted a strong 14th of july, he doesn't want to see that. from day one, i want fracking and everything else to get energy prices low and to create tremendous energy. he doesn't want that.
2:08 am
he would like hillary where she wants to be windmills. >> president trump on the campaign -- disparaged traditional american allies and alliances, the european alliance and experiment. and that does line up with pu s ppup -- with putin's wish list. >> absolutely. it's clear that putin was not excited about hale presidency. was -- a hillary clinton presidency. was not particularly excited about a continuation of the obama administration and its policies in any way. there are many things that have happened since the election that serve the interests of russia. most notably the two-hour meeting that took place, two-hour plus at the g-20, which elevated russia exactly in the way that putin had hoped. whatever happened in the meeting, the meeting itself was a victory for russia. >> and some describe the relationship -- at least the appearance of it -- as chummy. and new back to what the
2:09 am
president's up to in the next two days. meeting with emmanuel macron who some see as -- should be an ally. many characterize it as awkward given the statements and handshake. what do you expect from the optics and content from the meeting with macron and trump? >> i think when you have two world leaders sitting next to each other, it's not like the scene from "love actually " that everyone likes to remember. it's generally congenial and political. they play is safe. when they part, they can go their separate ways and take snipes at each other. it's interesting that in setting each other up as their foil plays to both of their bases. for trump to continue to use himself as the anti-macron in the u.s. certainly plays to his base here. for macron to set himself up as the anti-trump in europe is strengthening position for him. i think you see in this sense
2:10 am
two savvy politicians recognizing how they need to play the relationship. as you mentioned, i think everyone's going to be watching the han-- handshake again. >> prak ron called it a -- macron called it a moment of truth the first time. he wants to be at important moment. >> he made a video in english saying "make the planet great again," against the president's position on the paris climate accord. they have a lot to talk about. and tal kopen gets extra points for mentioning "love actually." >> a great movie. we love it. >> it is, it is. nice to see you. the senate expected to unveil its updated version of the health care bill today. it looks like it might not cut obamacare's taxes on the wealthy. critics blast it as a reverse robin hood, cutting health care coverage to help pay for tax cuts for the rich. so as you can see, it is politically imperative to keep those taxes in there. it may help the senate get the votes it needs to pass. the two taxes disproportionately affect the wealthy.
2:11 am
one is a 3.8% tax on investments. the other is a payroll taxes on high incomes. not preeling them -- not repealing them will inject $230 million into the bill. lowering premiums for older americans and lower income consumers. the gop, of course, has long opposed taxes. hates them, claiming they strangle economic growth. keeping them could hurt the conservative support the trump administration needs for tax reform. the treasury secretary, mnuchin, says reform is still on track for this year. he said this week he hopes to have a full plan in september. remains of several people found under 12 feet of concrete after an exhaustive search in pennsylvania. what police are saying about the suspect next. speak now.

2:16 am
a property in bucks county about an hour from philadelphia. additional human remains were also found in the common grave. >> joining us this morning with the latest on this, cnn following the story for us. good morning. >> good morning. investigators said they had a lot of leads in this case. this is where a lead brought them. the bucks county district attorney says that the remains were found in a 12.5-foot-deep grave. the d.a. says one body has been identified. that is of dean finocchiaro. he says the 19-year-old's family has been notified. there are additional remains in the common grave that have not yet been identified. we're hoping to hear more later today. the worst fears, of course, are that they belong to these three other men -- jimi patrick, tom meo, and mark sturgis -- all who went missing last week. police have arrested 20-year-old cosmo dinardo. the bodies were found after police brought in equipment to dig through concrete that was recently poured on land owned by
2:17 am
dinardo's family. dinardo had been arrested monday -- get this -- on an unrelated gun charge, released on $1 million bail, but then arrested again on wednesday after police say he tried to sell a car belonging to one of the missing men. bucks county d.a. matt weintraub says he hopes that arrest will give them all enough time to bring now homicide charges. >> i feel that we bought ourselves a little bit of time in charging mr. dinardo with the stolen car case today and getting that $5 million bail. it is my hope that he does not post that. that's his prerogative, if he can post it. we're going to look seriously at the homicide charges. and in fact, we already have pursued that option. >> and that same news conference, the district attorney says i don't know how it works, but he says cadaver dogs is what exactly helped them locate the remains. even 12.5 feet below ground, under concrete. the big question now, investigators still looking
2:18 am
into. they have two separate investigations going on at the same time here. what's happening there on the scene, when they're digging up the grave, and then also what happened. why were these guys connected. who's in trouble here? >> expecting more press conferences today. >> two on schedule. we'll get more information. >> thank you. britain's high court today reconvening to hear new medical evidence in the case of baby charlie gard. they want to bring him to the u.s. for treatment for a rare genetic order. the parents' legal battle with doctors to save charlie's life has gained international attention. they gave the hospital a petition with more than 350,000 riths from around the world -- signatures from around the world. hope for u.s. tennis fans. an american man reaching a major semifinal for the first time in years. highlights from wimbledon in this "bleacher report" next.

new video. president trump touches down in paris. a busy day ahead including his first public face-to-face with
2:31 am
reporters since his son's meeting with a russian lawyer. the president doesn't seem to think it's a problem. welcome back to "early start"ment i'm christine romans. >> i'm dave briggs. >> been waiting you to speak french. finally you delivered. it is 11:30 in paris. just hours from now in paris. president trump holds a news conference alongside french president emmanuel macron. it will be the first chance for reporters to question the president publicly since the revelation donald trump jr. met with a russian lawyer hoping to get dirt in hillary clinton. in advance of that news conference, president trump tells reuters he was unaware of the meeting don jr. agreed to, only learning about it a couple of days ago. >> a republican source says the president has privately expressed dismay his son agreed to the meeting but believes don jr. did nothing illegal. that source also says the president is annoyed the story has become a distraction from the overseas trip last week to poland and germany. a trip the white house sees as a
2:32 am
success. how will all of this affect the president's trip to france? melissa bell joins us from paris. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. what's going to be extremely interesting as both presidents get up together -- and it has yet to happen although donald trump has been in paris for more than two hours now -- is going to be the body language between the men. so much has been made of the fact that emmanuel macron was in many respects the anti-donald trump. so different are their world views. and yet there is so much that unites them. they are both political outsiders, both plain speaking. they are both pretty tough men who defend their world views vigorously and seem to have a certain respect for one another. and macron has been watching this growing isolation of donald trump on the world stage, feels that there's an opportunity for him here to try and bring him back into the fold. there will be an awful lot in the way the two men square up to one another, in front of the
2:33 am
cameras. and of course you mentioned the crucial press conference that the american president in particular are waiting to get so much from. i think with this visit and its timing, coming as it does in the middle of troubles for donald trump in washington, there is perhaps even more of an opportunity for four toemmanuel to find a partner with whom he can do business. getting him to realize the important ties that bind europe to the united states. the world stage that one would have imagined donald trump shying away from in the early days of his presidency might be one that he is relieved to seek out today in paris, leaving behind him in many respects the cloud over the last few days in washington. >> thank you for that. nice to see you this morning. you've got a lot of work ahead of you over the next few hours, no question. >> no doubt about that h. joining us to break down the politics of this, had cnn politics reporter tal kopen in washington and analyst, julian zeleer, historian and professor at princeton. >> good morning, guys. >> want to point to an
2:34 am
interesting op-ed this morning in "the new york times" from the president's top two advisers -- his national security adviser, r.m. mcmaster, chief economic adviser, gary cohn. >> in "the new york times?" sorry, "the new york times," you say? >> it is in "the new york times." it is 6,000 characters versus 140 characters, where the president prefers to speak in. julian zellezer, "the new york times," often derived as fake news. when the writers take to "the new york times" to writea an eloquent and passionate piece about those in leadership, what does it take about the knocks against the media before we get to the content of it? >> it says that despite what the president says, at least some in the administration understand the importance of the media institution that's they disparage. this is an effort by two top policymakers in the administration to outline some kind of doctrine and to make some kind of sense about
2:35 am
president trump's overseas policies when the twitter account won't do that for them. >> you sometimes hear people talk about mmt, the grown-ups, mcmaster, mattis, serial killer s -- mattis, cohn, tillerson. talking about open trade that has to be fair. when i hear them talk about open trade that has to be fair, i see other countries running around excluding the united states. i see mexico and china talking about doing a deal. i see the eu and japan doing a deal. is the united states america first policy as it is so far, does it mean america alone? >> yes. what the critics. say is that the u.s. is isolating itself. so withtrated agreements, we are now further removed from key deals and from regions like asia where you can see some of the effects on issues like north korea. also with climate change.
2:36 am
we are now standing alone in many ways from the rest e rest of the world. so the american first strategy can be very detrimental. and it assumes america first doesn't include the interests in curbing climate change. >> right. >> it's a very chemical understanding of what that means -- a very particular understanding of what that means. >> from the op-ed in "the new york times" to an important press conference, two and two, two questions from the american media, two from the french. certainly one has to be about don jr. the meeting he took with the russian lawyer. we got a hint of how the president might play this in an interview with reuters when the president said, "i think many people would have held that meeting. and you have to understand when that took place, this was before russia fever. there was no russia fever back then. that was at the beginning of the campaign more or less. there was no russia fever. it is now. even then, that was an american adversary, arguably our greatest on the planet.
2:37 am
12:00 eastern time. we will learn how the president plays this. is this the typical line you'd expect from the president relating to the meeting? >> i think so. i think that what we saw in the reuters article is a good preview of what we'll see from him. the famous self-proclaimed counterpuncher who does not suffer anything he perceives as an attack against him. you mentioned pivoting from "the new york times" op-ed. i think they're connected and connected in the sense that time and time again we see that no one can really speak for the president's vision but the president. i mean, his aides have struggled over and over to keep up with his changing explanations. they'll come out one day in the press conference and give an answer. then the president will undercut them in an interview. certainly he has two polls in the white house pulling him in different directions at home and abroad on policy. and so this press conference is going to be our opportunity to
2:38 am
hear from the president himself how he sees himself moving forward. at the point that he keeps undercutting his aides, there's no one else who can articulate his vision but himself. and so it's an incredibly important time to hear directly from him. >> there's also, you know, legislation, there's -- there's a big, explosive agenda. an aggressive agenda that he wanted to do. tax reform, health care reform, infrastructure. julian, you've got republicans still trying to work on health care, still trying to work on tax reform, frankly. it's sort of been -- it's been overshadowed by this. listen to what the president said to pat robertson yesterday about the health care bill. >> i'm sitting waiting for that bill to come to my desk. i hope that they do it. they've been promising it for years. they've been promising it ever since obamacare which has failed. it's a failed experiment. it is totally gone. it's out of business.
2:39 am
and we have to get this done. repeal and replace. >> the president says he will be angry if they don't get this done. what role should he have? >> i think he should have had a much stronger role. republicans on the hill think he's a hindrance. every time they're trying to build momentum for the legislation, the news turns to the russia scandal. not because of the media but because of him. >> republicans think this is not a media-created hoax. they think that the president has misplayed -- >> exactly. he doesn't done much to whip up the vote which president do to try to help the coalition on capitol hill. nor has he used the bully pulpit to try to explain why this bill is good. most people hear it will cut medicaid benefits come it will, and remove regulations. it's incumbent on the president to offer a different explanation. he'll be made if it doesn't -- >> it's strange to see his reaction given that 84% still
2:40 am
approve of the job the president is doing. his base is very much still behind him. so is the president's absence on health care by design, and what do you expect is the future of the health care bill? we understand they want a vote by late next week. >> yeah, that's right. so a, i think it is somewhat by design. keep in mind that when the house was doing this, trump did try to be actively involved and got in the way. he goes in to meetings with republicans and starts to make some promises to them about negotiating the bill. and every time leadership was in a good place, there would come a message, trump told conservatives he wants it to go there way. he told moderates it would go their way. then after they passed it and they held, you know, rose garden press conference celebrating it, he confirmed himself that in a closed meeting he called the bill mean. and so when it came time for the
2:41 am
senate to do its work, mccongress has run a much -- mcconnell has run a much more closed process than ryan. it may be something that they asked for. in terms of passage, it's not looked good. they have never shown any ability to get to actually 50 votes and being able to build a coalition of moderates and conservatives in the republican party to support this bill. i'll never say something's dead because i've seen congress do amazing things. it doesn't look good is the bottom line. >> they're talking about taxes on the rich, leaving the taxes on the rich in. that gets you a couple hundred billion dollars. it might lose you some real fiscal conservatives there, people who don't want -- who are anti-tax anyways. fascinating stuff. all right. thanks for being with us this morning. a lot to talk about. and i mean, the fact that emmanuel macron did a video in english saying "make the planet
2:42 am
great again," and now hosting the president who wants to make america great again -- >> and sad. out of the g-20, our world has never been so divided. many thought it was a veiled threat against president trump. interesting meeting. 42 minutes past the hour. the remains of several people found under 12 feet of concrete after an exhaustive search in pennsylvania, next. happening now? softly-shaped bold brows. new brow drama shaping powder from maybelline new york. our 1st brow powder! color and shape for softly-defined, bold brows. maybelline's brow drama shaping powder. make it happen. maybelline new york.
