tv   Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs  CNN  March 2, 2018 2:00am-2:59am PST

2:00 am
ready. and the president has a surprise sit down with the nra. the nra says the president does not want gun control. and get ready for a messy day in the northeast. evacuations in massachusetts and federal offices closed in d.c. we will have the full forecast for you. it is you ais ugly. the national weather service in boston calling it a life-or-death situation. good morning. i'm dave briggs. >> i'm christine romans. let's begin with the trade story. president trump slapping tariffs on steel and aluminum. impose tariffs on 25% on steel and 10% on aluminum to help the struggling industries. >> it comes to a time when our country cannot make aluminum and steel and somebody said it before and i will tell you you
2:01 am
almost don't have much of a country. >> trump gave no further details. he said the policy hasn't been written yet. while this decision makes good on the campaign promise to get tough on trade, it was made against the wishes of the top advisers and could bring negative consequences. tariffs are bad for the u.s. economy. "the wall street journal" slamming this as the biggest policy blunder. it will punish american workers and invite retaliation. dividing the coalition at help and undermine the tax and regulatory reforms. if you drive a car or fly in a plane or drink beer, prices could go up. anything with steel or aluminum could be higher costs to you. this will cost about 20,000 jobs. it is not clear if the tariffs will exempt key allies to the u.s. some trading partners -- canada.
2:02 am
a big trading relationship with canada. would this spark retaliation? maybe. especially from china. china could slap tariffs on soy beans. that damage is all theory. global stocks feeling it. that is enough for them to be worried. asian and europe markets falling overnight. dow down 420 points after the president said this. the nasdaq and s&p down 1%. shares of plane and carmakers hit hard. boeing and ford and gm. they would see higher costs for the products. there is a lot of uncertainty about the deal. >> is part of the problem the process? pulling a cake out of the oven before it is half baked? >> a lot of people say this guy was elected president. you would see the stock market collapse. his trade policies are so bad for the american economy. he hasn't enacted his trade
2:03 am
policies. this is the first real concrete action. that is why the stock market is concerned. >> top importers of steel? canada, mexico, south korea, brazil. not china. drawing condemnation from the trading partners from round the world. the president of the commission denouncing this as blatant interventi intervention. we have matt rivers with the latest on the china take on this situation. >> reporter: not surprising, dave. they are not in favor of this. it could get in the way of a slow global recovery. more so than the reaction today and more interested in the reaction that could come in the weeks and months ahead. how is china going to retaliate in a way to potentially hurt u.s. workers and u.s. jobs? christine said it.
2:04 am
soy is a great example of u.s. industry that supports tens of thousands of jobs for ordinary americans relies on the chinese market. billions of dollars in soy is shipped from the u.s. to china every year. if china is really unhappy with the proposal from the president, they could choose to say we will import more from argentina or import more soy from brazil. that has a negative effect in states that employ the workers. states that voted for donald trump in 2016. the chinese government knows that. to get them to back off, they put political pressure on the base which relies on the industry for jobs. >> a big battle ahead. matt rivers, thanks. the nra claims it has the president on its side after huddling with the president and vice president last night. the head of the lobbying arm of the nra, chris cox says the
2:05 am
president and vice president support the second amendment. >> a senior official would say the president believes in the second amendment. there is the president's reaction on twitter. the meeting with the nra follows the freewheeling meeting with the bipartisan group of lawmakers to discuss gun reform. the lawmaker at the meeting is congress member brian mast. he still believes the president will take action. >> he said clearly if we get him a bill that addresses bump stocks and background checks and buying age he will sign it. >> the nra met with the president and the vice president. do you think the president may tack back to his original position which were more in line with the nra positions? >> i certainly hope not. he has had a great deal of strength on this issue telling the other lawmakers you have to be strong and do what you think is right. you cannot say that and walk away. >> the suggestion at the
2:06 am
bipartisan meeting was more in line with democratic positions. now officials are skram nlicram. the measures will not be released today. mitch mcconnell says they will take up a banking bill next week. >> joining us this morning here in new york, julian zelitzer. let's start on guns. with immigration, we saw the reality tv unfold. we saw tuesday and thursday trump. this time it appears to have taken 24 hours for the president to do a 180 on guns if you believe the nra's tweet. >> i think the nra got spooked from hearing the comments. they understand he is not the most predictable president in the world. they are back and reminding him in the meeting and reminding members of congress the amount of votes and money they can deliver. they are trying to give a
2:07 am
reality check if anyone moves too far. >> why is everybody so afraid of the nra? the access the nra has to the oval office and now this crisis meeting. this is a lobby that president trump doesn't want to look like he's in their pocket. they have influence. >> they have money and lobbyists and they can deliver votes. they can deliver votes in areas that are important politically. when you combine all of that, you have to take all of the talk about gun control with a grain of salt. only in the political pressure against it is immense. >> to christine's point, the corporate world will lead the way and the congress can follow. similar to what happened on guns, republicans were furious. maybe they appear to be coming down. republicans are furious with what happened on trade. here is reaction from the latest
2:08 am
tariffs on steel and aluminum. 25% and 10%. chairman roberts says every time you do this you get retaliation. this is counter production from the aeg economy. here is ben sasse. >> no trade war has ever worked. we don't want to make america 1930 again. f all the data shows that trade wars do the opposite. >> labor unions celebrating a move by the president which is a tad ironic. what is the impact of all this? >> the risky thing he did. this goes against the republican orthodoxy. a real measure of what people are thinking and what will happen with the stock market plunge. that said, remember this was a promise which was appealing
2:09 am
during the campaign to many workers and democratic areas. if the stock market effects is not totally damages in the long run, you can imagine in 2018 and 2020, the republicans saying the president delivered. he went against the republican party. this is why you elected him. >> he delivered steel in steeltown. that is what we hear. the president says the decision comes down to the people who put him in the white house. >> it has to be balanced with the economic reality. if this doesn't have the economic effect, that is where republicans could pay the price during the mid terms. we don't know which way it will go. >> "the wall street journal" says 6.5 million jobs in steel. 140,000 that are steel making. numbers are not on his side. let's step back and look at the broad 30,000 foot view of the week. you have the moves on trade. the moves on guns which we have
2:10 am
not figured out. look at the last 72 hours. h.r. mcmaster appears to be on the way out. hope hicks, the most trusted adviser, on the way out. trump attacks his attorney j general again. calling him disgraceful. this is a bad week even for trumpian standards. >> this is the new normal. every time it happens, there is shock and predictions that everything is going off track. we only had a few weeks where this wasn't going on. chaos and disarray and characte house. will this work? i don't know. this is how he governs. this is how he shapes the narrative of the media. this is how he makes his decisions in this environment. there is no way to really stop it. >> his favorability numbers creep back up. things were somewhat
2:11 am
normalizing. >> that's the economy buttressing a lot of this issue. that is why the straytrade deci is interesting. >> jobless claims at a 50-year low. unbelievable. the job market is really doing well. people feel that. thank you. come back. u.s. officials are skeptical about vladimir putin's claim to have a missile so powerful it can penetrate nato defenses and mar-a-lago. we are live in moscow. why is dark magic so spell-bindingly good? it's a bold blend of coffee with rich flavors of uganda, sumatra, colombia and other parts of south america. like these mountains, each amazing on their own. but together? magical. all, for a smoother tasting cup of coffee. green mountain coffee roasters.
