let you keep an eye on your business from anywhere. the others? nope! get internet on our gig-speed network and add voice and tv for $34.90 more per month. call or go on line today. strength is going to keep us out of the nuclear war. what john tester did to this man is a disgrace. well, i know things about tester that i could say too. of course trump isn't here if you haven't noticed. i would drag him mere myself. >> russian collusion.
give me a break. we will impeach the president. i don't do the we will have a lot of happy people when that happens. >> i think give the president credit when he deserves it. he pulled out of the paris agreement and i should get credit because he pulled out when he said he did and that is a refreshing quality in a man! >> announcer: this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. >> good sunday morning. >> it's sunday morning, after that sound bite, it's sunday more than and welcome, people. >> it's the politics and the punch lines that so much people are lbe talking about and arguing about today. president trump dodging the jokes at the annual white house accordance dinner to rally his base in michigan. >> in the crowd in washington seemed skeptical of the president's speech. the crowd in washington township, michigan, they were all in for the president's
message which included criticizing james comey, rift on russia and personal progress on north korea. >> one of the fake news grip, folks, this morning, no, they were saying, what do you think of president trump had to do with it? i tell you what. how about everything? >> the president told the crowd he is not playing around when it comes to pyongyang and kim jong-un and drawing this reaction from the fans. >> that's very nice. thank you. that's very nice.
nobel. >> as in peace prize. we start with sarah westwood who is live in washington. full steam ahead it seems for president trump when it comes to his meeting with kim jong one. what do we know about that? >> president trump was eager to talk about his meeting with kim jong-un at the rally last night and friendly crowd of answering chants of nobel. he certainly had no problem claiming credit for progress and talks between north korea and south korea and we saw those unfold this week. and teasing his upcoming meeting with kim jong-un hinting it could come within three or four weeks reiterating his promise to walk out of that meeting if it doesn't go his way. we know that comes after the administration has been behind the scenes working for more than a month to set up these potential talks between north korea and the u.s. at the
highest levels and there are sticking points where the talks will take place in a neutral location acceptable to both sides. we know president trump has dispatched mike pompeii a ahead of that meeting. 3 to 4 weeks is a quick time line and interesting to see just how close the administration really is to striking a deal that is acceptable to both sides on those talks. >> let's bring in paula hancocks now. >> this is information we have got from the presidential office here in south korea. it's second-hand but they say it came from the mouth of king jom unsaying he has said he will shut down his nuclear testing site in may. so a timetable there we haven't had before. also saying that he was going to invite experts and journalists from south korea, from the u.s.
to show complete transparency. he also said an interesting thing that he is not the kind of person that would fire a nuclear weapon against south korea or against the united states. obviously, a very different kim jong-un we saw on friday than we have seen in recent months and years. as we have heard threats from north korea against washington, against seoul a number of other capitals but saying he is not the person that would do this. the nuclear test site in the nuclear part of the country he would shut down. he said it collapsed and needed to be shut down. he said there were two more tunnels there that nobody knew about and they were in very good condition but he was still going to shut it down. one more thing as well. he also said that he was going to change time. a few years ago, kim jong-un decided to change the clocks back half an hour in pyongyang so they were different from seoul and now move them into the
seoul time again so kim jong-un moving time twice in a fee years. >> moving time twice in a few years. >> talk about paower. >> sarah westwood is officially a cnn reporter. welcome to the family, sarah. >> thank you. the president used his rally to attack democrats calling had his impeachment and developments into the russia investigation. >> we have to keep the house because if you listen to maxine wate waters. what? she goes around saying, we will impeach him! i and people said he hasn't done anything wrong. that doesn't matter. we will impeach the president. so i don't think we are going to have a lot of happy people if that happens. i think it's going to be a little bit tough.
she goes around and others and says we will impeach him. doesn't matter if you do anything right or wrong. they will do that. we have to win the house. you know what? we are going to win any way. but we are going to win the house. have you heard about the lawyer? a year a woman lawyer saying i know nothing. now, all of a sudden, she supposedly is involved with government. you know why? if she did that, because putin and the group said, you know, this trump is killing us. what are you saying that you're involved with government so that we can go and make their life in the united states even more chaotic? look at what has happened. look at how these politicians have fallen for this junk. russian collusion, give me a break. >> let's talk about it now. kelly jane torrance, good
morning. >> good morning. >> kelly, the president has used this line of argument before to keep republicans in control of congress or they are going to impeach me, republicans have been some groups have been fund-raising off of this. how effective is it? >> i think it actually can be fairly effective with the republican base. i mean, let's face it. one of the reasons donald trump was elected is because you had a great number of people in the united states who felt that their voices weren't being heard by traditional politicians. and when you have politicians saying, hey, we don't like this guy who was elected we want to impeach them that makes them feel the lesson was not learned. the people in washington are still not hearing their voices. so i think it's a strategy that could backfire some some ways for democrats although i think they are strong going into the mid terms. >> errol, you have to consider this is an impressive contortion here. the president over the last 16
months now has, by name, criticized paul ryan and mitch mcconnell and on down the list and ran against the washington establishment and now he is saying keep the status quo to protect me. >> that's right. look. you perceive, i think properly, the gap between the politics that work for donald trump and the politics that work for the other members of his party who are very worried going into the fall midterm elections. so for donald trump, when he pulls out impeachment, it rallies the base, it brings a lot of waivers in line saying we didn't want to throw the guy out. we didn't like how things are going but we don't necessarily want to see him impeached. the polling suggests it works not only to his favor but also to that of some of the republicans who are running with him. that is why, by the way, victor you see a lot of the democratic leadership has access to the
best polling data and pelosi and the rest of the leadership, they keep saying not so fast on impeachment. this doesn't work for us. it really spurs turnout. if there is going to be a blue wave, it's because there is an enthusiasm gap the democrats can win. when trump starts warning about impeachment and when republicans warn about impeachment, that sort of gets the excitement going in the republican base. >> kelly, let's talk about the lawyer that he brought up at the rally last night that now claims she is an informant for the russian government. the president's explanation really corresponds with what the intelligence community and russia analysts say was initially the reason that russia first started meddling in the election was so chaos and then they chose their candidate. some people believe on this one the president might be right that now is the time to start to bring up some other chaotic elements.
>> i have to admit i was a little surprised to hear donald trump complaining about chaos in washington. he normally seems to like to cause it and revel in it. maybe donald trump is finally thinking that the deep state might be right about a few things and let's face it, when you look at what came out of that meeting, the russians actually were not very successful and nobody really got what they wanted. the trump people did not get the dirt on hillary they were going to get and the russians, in fact, did not get any sanctions lifted after trump was elected and, in fact, we have only seen more sanctions on russia. admittedly some of those may have come reluctantly from donald trump but he has a great team behind him that do understand what is going on in russia and that russia is trying to sew this chaos and it sounds like maybe they are getting through the president and he, himself, is starting to see, sometimes the russians seem to like to do things to help me and
other times they don't and he finally realizes they do not support a single candidate but cause chaos and make western democracy look bad. >> errol, if the president believes she is telling the truth, is and was an informant for the russian government, does not make the june 2016 more egregious? is he serving his team by acknowledging it? >> no. by acknowledging it he simply is coming along with reality as reflected in a ton of information, shall we say, as well as some indictments and some ongoing investigation. it's no great sort of concession for him to simply acknowledge what everybody has already sort -- no. he does put himself and his team, those his former campaign team, including his son, in a little bit of a tricky position because, yeah, if you go back and look at that meeting and what was said about it, it was
supposed to be a nothing burger and nothing about a meeting about adoptions. we know the candidate at the time was involved in trying to spin what that meeting was about. all of that now changes if the new line is going to be it was a direct intervention by the russian government, and it cries out for further explanation from the president. now that you know this, what are you prepared to do about it shall what were all of those former statements about that meeting and what does donald jr. have to say about it and paul manafort have to say about it and how does it my the legal problems that paul manafort has. maybe more in the rally he shouldn't have gotten into. >> you expect that bob mueller knew she was an informant. does this, from your perspective, from your understanding, change anything
legally, substantively she is telling reporters she was an informant? >> despise this being one of the leakest washington's of all time bob mule ser a step ahead of the game and he knew all this. his office has been relatively go about not meeting but the people meeting with him have been doing it. he knows all about this and has been a part of his investigation. if there are questions, i agree, need to be answered you know his team is looking to try to answer those. >> kelly jane torrance and errol louis, thank you for being with us. stay with us. a lot more to discuss later this hour. also later this morning on "state of the union," governor john cassic and stormy daniels attorney michael avennati will be with jake tapper at 9:00 a.m. eastern. >> a lot of people saying did michelle wolf speak truth to power at the dinner last night

you may have heard i was invited to another event tonight, the white house accordance dinner. but i'd much rather be in washington, michigan, than in washington, d.c. right now. >> of course trump isn't here, if you haven't noticed. he is not here. i know. i know. i would drag him here myself but it turns out the president of the united states is the one [ bleep ] you're not allowed to grab! >> president trump went head-to-head with the white house accordancorrespondents di. he held a washington in washington township, michigan, as he was slammed in washington, d.c. >> a lot of people were wond wondering was the dinner an effective counterpunch to the president or a political gift to
him? brian stelter and host of "reliable sources" is with us now. what is your take and what is the word on the street at the end of the day the effectiveness or the success of the dinner? >> you can judge it based on the comedy or judge it based on the controversies that ensued and certainly has been a split reaction to mitchell wolf's performance and maybe what she wanted. she wanted to stoke controversy and make some political points and many saying it was inappropriate or effective. >> you guys got to stop putting kellyann on your shous. all she does is lie. if you don't give her a platform she has nowhere to lie. like the old saying if she is lying, put her stuck under a
tree. there is ivanka who was supposed to be an advocate for women but it turns out she is about as helpful to women as an empty box of tampons and done nothing to satisfy women so i guess like father, like daughter. oh, you don't think he is good in bed. come on! she does clean up nice, though. ivanka cleans up nice. she is the diaper genie of the administration. on the outside she looks sleek but the inside is still full. [ bleep ]. then we have sarah huckabee sanders. we are graced with her presence tonight. i have to say i'm a little star-struck. i love you as aunt lydia on the handmade tail. mike pence, if you haven't seen it, you would love it. every time sarah steps up to the
podium, i get excited because i'm not really sure what we are going to get. you know? a press briefing, a bunch of lies or a divided into softball teams. i actually really like sarah. i think she is very resourceful. like, she burns fax and shen th uses that ash to create a smoky ash. maybe she is born with it. maybe it's lice. it's probably lice. it's 2018 and i'm a woman so you cannot shut me up unless you have michael cohen wire me $130,000. michael, you can find me on venmo under my porn star name reince priebus. >> let the debate continue and some of michelle wolf's jokes and especially when she was really criticizing the trump
administration officials who were in the room and controversy over her performance and doing it in an edgy stand-up act and what comedians sometimes do at the dinner but calling out the trump admission officials who snubbed the dinner last year and decided to attend this year made for awkward moments at the dinner and some people this morning saying the jokes about sarah sanders went too far and michelle responded to twitter saying she was talking about sarah sanders capacity for lying and being misleading. quote, her despicable behavior. meanwhile sean spicer responded overnight saying the dinner was a disgrace. michelle wolf had a two-word response saying, thank you, so sean spicer. >> so does it appear as if kelly ann conway and some of the other former administration officials and current sarah sanders went there to make those faces and not laugh? or was this really morri more r-
risque? i think they wanted to do that as a profit and he is tired of elite's mocking up so a criticism from that family. you saw other crump allies expressing disappointment in the perform answer saying michelle wolf went too far. peter baker of "the new york times" saying, quote, unfortunately, i don't think we advanced the cause of journalism tonight. our colleague said he agreed with baker there was an embarrassment to the room that we should have the focus on journalism and not on comedy at the white house correspondents dinner. this is a tension that exists every year and exacerbated this year because i think our
politics are poisonus because arguments on both sides that are so intense and michelle wolf was going right at that addressing the media's coverage of trump and the lies and deceit that comes out of the white house. i know some comedians did up for her after the performance and said you hired an edgy comedian so what were you expecting? i thought telling when wolf said to the crowd you should have done more research before you invited me to washington to do this. >> it's not as though carol costel costel costello. >> it's not as if kelly ann conway and sarah sanders didn't expect to be on the list of discussion. >> i think the president appreciates the split screen appearance of a night like the white house accordance dinner. he likes seeing a bunch of
journalists in tuxes and ball gowns in a ballroom he while he is holding a rally with the voters and he likes the appearance. to him showing the swamp on one side and the voters on the other side. i think he likes that perception and leans into it and i'll guess. maybe see him weigh in on twitter later criticizing michelle wolf and part of this continuous battle that is going on. i think what trump allies saying she is showing the liberal media are out to get the trump base. that argument which we have seen for years this tug of war is exacerbated by events like this one. i would at one more thing. i think something wolf was trying to do with these very risque jokes and x-rated jokes, i think she was trying to point to president trump and saying why is the behavior accepted in some cases by the leader of the
free world but i'm criticized up here as a comedian saying some of the same sorts of things? i think it might have been what she was going for and we will see if her message comes across or not. >> brian stelter, thank you so much. we appreciate it. he is not going anywhere. >> catch him on "reliable sources" at 11:00 a.m. eastern today right here on cnn. still to come, president trump is continuing to attack senator jon tester over the allegations of misconduct. over ronny jackson allegations. >> and allison chinchar is joining us next with your forecast. ♪

here is some of what the president said last night. >> we have to have borders and we have to have them fast and we need security. we need the wall. we are going to have it all. again, that wall has started. we got 1.6 billion. we come up again on september 28th and if we don't get border security we will have no choice. we will close down the country because we need border security. you watch comey and you watch the way he lies and then he has got the memos. i wonder when he wrote the memo, right? then he has got the memos and he puts them up. watch the way he lies. it's the most incredible thing. do you remember john lovett? the liar! comey is worse. comey is a liar and a leaker! >> political panel is back with us to discuss. errol louis and kelly jane torrance. thank you both for sticking
around here. i want to reference a couple of things he said. errol, first of all, regarding jon tester. he said i know things about tester that i could say too and if i said them he would never be elected again. is he going to have to live up to that and do those kinds of really -- it sounds like a threat. does it affect tester going forward as we look to midterms? >> it depends on whether or not the president actually has any relevant information that voters in montana would care about. i'd say it's a coin toss. we have heard the president do this before where he says comey better hope i don't have any tapes and i might have information on obama. he has made sort of a career out of making these kind of unsubstantiated charges and half the time they fizzle out and the other half they are not relevant. i don't think tester will lose any sleep with the caveat like any politician he may have some embarrassing information that somehow has escaped the notice
of voters for all of thets many years. fountain president had it he would be well-advised to use it as soon as possible because it's a tough race out there but tester as an incumbent looks like he plays very well right now and now better after the june primaries out there. four republicans are coming after jon tester and right now he looks like he's in a sdents position to beat them all off. >> do you believe president trump has something to derail tester? >> i have trouble believing it because if he had it, why wouldn't he have used it immediately to get away from all of the terrible allegations about ronny jackson? as errol said he said it before about having the comey tapes and hinting that he did and he didn't. i think both sides have questions about this whole nomination. if everything jon tester said was false, then why did ronny jackson withdraw his nomination? at the same time, it seems like a lot of the allegations may have been the case and if that
is the case, obviously, the trump administration did not vet him properly but i wonder how he kept his job this long. a few of the allegations have to do with him not able to perform his job properly when he was personal physician to barack obama. if that is the case how is he allowed to keep that job? it's an important job. a lot of questions here and i'm not sure that trump's veiled threats will help us answer any of them. >> yeah. he's had that job for 12 years. one other thing that the president talked about i want to get your take on, errol, border security. he said we have to have borders and we have to have them fast and we need security. he said we got 1.6 billion and here is the key. we come up again on september 28th that if we don't get border security we have no choice and we will close down the country because we need border security. this is what stood out to some of us here. he didn't say we need to have the wall. he said we need to have border
security. that could be cameras, that could be agents, revitalizing part of the wall or fencing that is already there. do you sense a shift in the president getting away from the wall and sticking with the border security verbiage and does that matter? >> well, it certainly is a moving target. i thought mexico was going to pay for all of this. i'm wondering why we are even wondering about whether or not a government shutdown would be necessary. let's be clear. when he says shut down the country he means a government shutdown based on that september deadline. so, no. i think this has been evolving all along and purely a political issue. the mexico city are not going to pay for it. it's not even clear whether congress is going to pay for it. as you properly suggest, it's not clear whether or not it's going to be this wall that has been so heavily advertised. one thing i'll tell you for sure, though, it's unlikely that the republican party is going to look favorably on the idea of a government shutdown in the closing weeks of a very tough
general election campaign. if shortly after labor day is there a question whether or not the government should shut down my guess is democrats and republicans alike will figure out some way to move that particular question past election day. i would be very surprised if in order to help the president or for any other reason they would allow a government shutdown before a general election. >> i want to move to north korea here real quickly, kelly jane, because the -- we know this morning that the north korea says their nuclear test site, it's being destroyed next month and they are going to allow international experts to come into that. and witness i guess the destruction. the international internet community, do you get a sense there is a true gauge of what kind of resources, nuclear resources north korea has? because he may be saying, yes, you could come into this site. but how do we know there is not another site somewhere? >> a great question.
i will say there is a certain amount they can keep quiet but i was in seoul in the dmz at the end of february for part of the olympics and i talked to a senior analyst that we have there and he said that our intelligence tends to be very good. and we have a pretty good idea of what they have going on. there is certain amount they can keep quiet but there is a lot of things that we have great satellite footage. we have got intelligence coming out so we do have a lot of information. i have to tell you when i was there, we are hearing a lot about denuclearization and not hearing a lot about will kim start treating the people of north korea better? when i was looking at a pair of binoculars at the dmz to north korea i saw ox pulling plows. this country is poor and backwards and a hundred thousand political prisoners there so i hope we hear more about the people while we are talking about denuclearization. >> errol, i see you shaking your
head yes. >> it's not just run-of-the-mill repression. this is classified as crimes against humanity so bad as the repression there. this isn't just about making sure that there isn't a nuclear threat. this is also about thousands and thousands of people whose human rights and very existence are also at stake here. >> errol and kelly jane, we appreciate having you both here. thank you. >> thank you. mike pompeo's trip to north korea historic summit between the koreas now to seemingly yield positive results at least rhetorical. kim jong-un says he will shut down his nuclear sites ahead in may and what questions are ahead and will it really happen? and automatically adjusts to keep you both effortlessly comfortable... does your bed do that? i'm the new sleep number 360 smart bed. let's meet at a sleep number store.

the new secretary of state mike pompeo is on his first official trip aborder and on his way to israeli after a series of meetings in saudi arabia. >> this morning we are learning more about his meeting with kim jong-un ahead of president trump's meeting with un in the next three or four weeks we now know. elise, good to see you this morning. what did secretary pompeo say about his meeting with the north korean leader? >> it's really interesting. secretary of state, former cia director mike pompeo was sort of leading those discussions with the north koreans until then made a secret trip in the eastern with a meeting with kim jong-un, saying it was a good meeting and kim swrong unhjong- looking to denuclearize the
north korean peninsula. take a listen to what he said this morning to abc news. >> reporter: president trump said you have a good relationship with kim jong-un. do you? >> we have a good conversation. we talked about serious matters. he was very well prepared. i hope i've matched that. we had an extensive conversation on the hardest issues that face our two countries. i had a clear mission statement from president trump when i left there, kim jong-un understood the mission exactly as i've described it today. and he agreed that he was prepared to talk about and to lay out a map that would help us achieve that objective and only time can tell if we can get that down. >> reporter: now he is secretary of state, mike pompeo will play a greater role in preparing that summit and maybe see a trip for him to north korea to lay a groundwork for the sum bit but details need to be worked out particularly what it means for denarization. i think the north koreans and
the u.s. have two different desks of that. >> let's talk about what we are hearing from the south korean official saying they shutting down a nuclear test site and the type of person kim says he is and is not. >> he says i'm not the type of person that needs to, you know, launch nuclear weapons or make nuclear test and committed to getting rid of that test site in may, you know, in advance of this summit with president trump. i mean, look. these are, you know, what we saw over the last couple of days is certainly ground breaking. even the north koreans said they are changing their time zone to meet the south koreans and talking about a new history and new beginning. we have been there before. one of the cool towers was blown
up and then they reconstituted everything so see if they are committed to giving up their nuclear program. they are saying the right things and they are going through the motions. it remains to be seen what could come out of this meeting with president trump. i don't think we are going to see a nuclear deal but if we keep going down this road, these steps, it certainly is a process that takes everyone much further and much improved situation than we were just several months ago. >> a dramatic and rapid change from hell fire. remember when our reporters -- fire and fury back and forth and i have my button on my desk ready to go. >> that was the first of the year. >> the propaganda speakers. thank you for being with us this morning. >> thank you. there is severe weather out there and a possibility of tornadoes today. cnn meteorologist allison chinchar is watching it all.

could develop tornadoes. but also talk to anybody in the midwest this year and they have felt winter has just lingered. having that extra cold air also helps prevent a lot of severe storms. and the other thing to note, a lot of the warm moist air is suppressed down around the gulf coast region. when you look for that one area that is really lacked the ingredients for severe weather, it's this. nebraska, kansas, oklahoma, which surprisingly is where you think there would be tornadoes. all three of those states have had zero tornadoes so far this year. in fact, we have only had 270 total tornadoes for the entire country so far this year. we normally would average 475. that is only about 57%. so where have they been? because we have had tornadoes, it's just not in the usual spots you would think, okay? so here is a look at the map. we have had some in texas, that is also an obvious spot. louisiana has actually been one
of the highest states that so far that we have seen. then a few other scattered areas. here is the thing. the area where we normally expect to see them, tornado alley, north dakota to texas, those are going to be the areas that are going to have the biggest threat in the coming days. here is a look at monday. you can see south dakota stretching down towards texas. then tuesday, it starts to shift a little bit further east but it also enhances the risk. we are now starting to get a bigger threat for severe weather on tuesday. and then you go into wednesday. a very similar area but the threats are still the same. yes, when we talk about this, this is expected to potentially be a tornado outbreak. meaning not just one or two tornadoes but a lot of them and perhaps large tornadoes. >> allison chin chchar thank yo for the heads-up and stay safe if you're in that area. >> we are back with a quick
break for the next hour. >> more highlights from president trump in washington township, michigan, as well as the correspondents dinner in washington, d.c. you're watching "cnn new day." we are glad you're here. ♪ ah, my poor mouth breather. allergies? stuffy nose? can't sleep? enough. take that. a breathe right nasal strip of course. imagine just put one on and pow!
strength is going to keep us out of the nuclear war. what jon tester did to this man is a disgrace. well, i know things about tester that i could say too. of course, trump isn't here if you haven't noticed. i would drag him here myself. >> is this better than that phony washington white house correspondents dinner?
