tv Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs CNN June 8, 2018 2:00am-2:59am PDT
and finally something everyone in washington can agree on. stanley cup heads to d.c. for the first time in franchise history. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm dave briggs. 5:00 a.m. in the east. air force one is wheels up for canada and the g7 summit. president trump will not stay long. he plans to leave quebec tomorrow morning skipping climate change and environment and oceans summits. expecting a brawl with allies over trade. on thursday afternoon, he questioned if it made sense for him to go. he will be outnumbered on key issues. our sources say the president was told cancelling would make it look like he is shrinking from a fight he started. with that on his mind, the president told advisers he will enter talks swinging. >> no official reason to leave the g7 early, but we speculate
from trump's own words it is not to prepare for the north korean summit next week. >> i think i'm prepared. it is about attitude. it is about willingness to get things done. >> let's talk about all this with greg valliere. live in d.c. this morning. i'm sure you have not had much sleep. i know you were watching the stanley cup final game. let's talk about what happened one year before the washington capitals went to washington, the group of seven was formed. one year before. this is an unusual situation given the dynamics with the president and our allies. let's start with tweets. emmanuel macron, french president tweeting at 4:49 yesterday. the american president may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a six-country
agreement if need be. the countries represent values and economic market which has the weight behind it and now a true international force. as you imagine, donald trump fired back on twitter. please tell mr. trudeau and emmanuel macron they are charging he -- charging massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers. it should be interesting. what is the implication of the twitter spat? >> let me say two things, dave. first of all, you have to say this is starting to become really personal. the level of acrimony between macron and trudeau and trump. it is not healthy. i'm wondering if trump will start calling them nicknames like "low energy jeb" or "lying marco." will it get that juvenile?
that is a concern. the second point is you talk to people on capitol hill and it is the republicans who are the most uneasy about this fight because they realize the retaliation will hit the farm belt. the republicans are strong in the farm belt. this could hurt their political standing. >> it goes against everything the republican party has been behind in the last 20 years. open markets and free trade. there is something interesting about the canada piece of this in particular. this is why the canadians are so fl fl flum flomoxed. we have been fighting back and forth for years. why is the president arguing with our allies and potentially, especially the fury in europe
against the united states. driving closer to china and russia. >> it is mind boggling. i'm sure he had been advised by larry kudlow. i'm sure the conservatives think this is ill advised. he can't be talked to. the u.s. chamber of commerce feels this is not good policy. he is not listening to the critics. i do think on trade tariffs, things will get worse before they get better. >> greg, the feeling inside the white house, there has never been a better time. larry kudlow says the international trade system is broep. -- broken. the economy is strong. we will go to g7 and show allies and look how great the american economy is and don't tell us we can't do tariffs. we are the strongest economy in the world. they think now is the time. >> is it? i say you heard me say a lot how strong this economy is.
it is red hot. it will not dramatically hurt the u.s. economy. there is one angle we have to worry about. that is business confidence. it went through the roof last year with regulatory reform and tax cuts. now businesses face uncertainty. do they have to deal with tarif tariffs? when they plan ahead, is this an issue they factor in? that takes a little luster off the tax cuts. >> and because of this economy, mitt romney, former gop presidential candidate, he thinks donald trump will get reelected. saying on the back of the economy. he added this. i think it is true our democrat flight attendan friends are likely to nominate someone out of the american mainstream thought. do you agree with that assessment? >> it is still so far ahead, dave. so hard to make a definitive call. i think if trump wants to get renominated, he will be
renominated. no one in the party can take him out. in a general election, we are a long way away. people eight years ago never heard of barack obama. if the economy continues as red hot as it is right now, i do not see a tidal wave election this fall. maybe a high surf warning, but not tidal wave. >> we will talk about zte and how stock can rise if there are woi wo worries of a trade war. a long time senate staffer arrested for allegedly lying to federal agents in a probe of unauthorized leaks. james wolfe lied to fbi agents in december about his contacts with three reporters and in some cases using an encrypted messages app.
he worked under leadership of both parties before leaving at the end of 2017. he is due in court later today. >> in connection with the wolfe investigation, prosecutors secretly seized years of phone and other e-mail records of one of the reporters. the reporter allie watkins had been dating wolfe for three years. the seizure suggests federal prosecutors are not letting up on the aggressive efforts to deter leaks. these tactics were used under the obama administration. president trump boasting no need for him to do a lot of prepare work for the historic summit with north korea. that doesn't seem to bother his secretary of state. >> there were few days that i left the oval office after having briefed the president that we did not talk about north korea. over months and months and days and days, president trump has been receiving briefings on this
issue. i'm very confident the president will be fully prepared when he meets with his north korean counterpart. >> the president says he may even invite kim jong-un to the united states. perhaps meeting at the white house. let's bring in anna coren live in tokyo. anna, what is the latest in the region? >> reporter: dave, a lot of anticipation for the summit in singapore next week. obviously people in this part of the world want to see change. they want something constructive to come out of the summit. they have been living with the threat of north korea for years. people were taken aback of trump extending the invitation to kim jong-un if the talks go well. what does that mean? we don't know. does it mean full denuclearization of the korean peninsula? that is something secretary of state mike pompeo has stated. he says north korea has committed to that. we have not heard it from north
korea. does it mean striking a compromise? allowing kim to keep short-range missiles and keeping the intercontinental ballistic missiles? does this mean good chemistry between trump and kim? trump has gone out of his way to say this summit will provide substance and it is not just about optics. take a listen. >> this will not be just a photo-op. this will be a minimum start with a good relationship. that is something that is very important to the ultimate making of the deal. i would love to say it could happen in one deal. maybe it can. >> reporter: he loves a deal. he believes he can make a deal. i think, dave, we need to remember this is an extremely complex issue. the previous u.s. administrations have tried and failed to accomplish. this is a big talking game so far, but kim will never give up
nuclear weapons because they are vital to the legitimacy of the kim regime. >> mike pompeo talks about this in more detail than the president of the united states. that could be fascinating. anna, thank you. ten minutes past the hour. it appear s rudy giuliani's act is wearing thin with the trump inner circle the day after the president's lawyer said this. >> they insulted the vice president. they insulted his national security adviser. he said we will not have a summit under those circumstances. kim jong-un got back on his hands and knees and begged for it. >> the secretary of state mike pompeo responded this way. >> we're focused on the important things. i know rudy. rudy doesn't speak for the administration when it comes to this negotiation and set of issues. >> giuliani also weighed in on
the stormy daniels and if melania trump believes her husband. >> she believes in her husband. she knows it is not true. i don't think there is a slight suspicion it is true. >> a day later, the first lady's spokesperson said i don't believe mrs. trump has ever discussed her thoughts on anything, under score anything, with mr. giuliani. the first lady has never publicly addressed the stormy daniels story. giuliani says he never interviewed melania trump about stormy daniels. >> that was remarkable to see the first lady's office come out so strongly. >> it appears the president is comfortable with everything rudy is doing. he likes this pr attack on all fronts. another troubling video. new video from mesa, arizona. >> where is the gun? >> no gun. no gun. >> that's a 15-year-old suspect. a second investigation of excessive force by police is under way. it guts start my busins

>> i don't think so. two in three years? no. >> it can't be that simple. >> we will see. >> it will happen. andy scholes, good to see you. g7 leaders ready to do business without the u.s. the president heading to canada this morning. so unimpressed with the agenda, he will also leave early. i was just finishing a ride. i felt this awful pain in my chest. i had a pe blood clot in my lung. i was scared. i had a dvt blood clot. having one really puts you in danger of having another. my doctor and i chose xarelto®. xarelto®. to help keep me protected. xarelto® is a latest-generation blood thinner that's... proven to treat and reduce the risk of dvt or pe blood clots from happening again. in clinical studies, almost 98% of patients on xarelto® did not experience another dvt or pe. xarelto® works differently. warfarin interferes with at least 6 of your body's natural blood-clotting factors. xarelto® is selective, targeting just one critical factor.

stanley cup heads to d.c. for the first time in franchise history. the great 8 is one of the best in hockey history. welcome back to "early start." i'm dave briggs. >> i'm christine romans. it is friday. g7 friday. the air force one is wheels up for canada and the g7 summit. the president will not stay long. he plans to leave quebec mid-morning tomorrow skipping meetings on climate change. expecting a brawl with allies over trade. on thursday afternoon, he questioned if it made sense for him to go. he will be outnumbered on key issues. our sources say the president was told cancelling would make it look like he is shrinking from a fight he started. >> with that on his mind, the president told advisers he will enter talks swinging.
no official reason to leave the g7 early, but we speculate it is not to prepare for the north korean summit next week. >> i think i'm prepared. it is about attitude. it is about willingness to get things done. >> attitude and willingness. >> swagger, baby. >> let's bring in greg valliere. he is live in washington. i know you have been up all night. emmanuel macron had the tweet yesterday. the american president may not mind isolated, but neither do we mind signing a six-country agreement if need be because these six countries represent values and economic market which has the weight of history behind it and has the true international force. the president responding. tell prime minister trudeau and president macron they are
charging the u.s. massive tariffs. the trade surplus is $141 billion. look forward to seeing them tomorrow. greg, i'm told that inside the white house, they are confident they are on the right side here. the international trade system is broken and has been for years. the u.s. economy is strong. this is the perfect time for donald trump with his vision on trade to fix it. >> well, if you want to use a hammer, maybe he can get results. i think the reason he is leaving early is i think he knows how this movie will end and he knows it will not be a lot of happy faces or smiles at the photo-ops. maybe smiles in the korean talks. the tactics and way he is going about it is alienating our allies, but alienates the republicans in congress. >> he gives zte a lifeline. speaking of alienating
republicans in congress. he gives a lifeline to zte. immediately it looks as if he is doing favors with the chinese for the broader trade negotiations there. he is alienating america's allies. >> by him saying this is a national security issue that these allies are jeopardizing our security, that angers them. they feel resentful he would make that argument to allies we had for decades or some cases centuries. >> so when it comes to trade, though, and all our allies angry, do you have to break some eggs to make an omelette? boris johnson said he wishes trump could do brexit. he told buzzfeed. he would come in and go bloody hard and breakdowns and chaos. everyone would think he has gone mad. actually, you might get somewhere. if he gets concessions from canada here and china there. all around the world. does trump win in the end
without massive damage to the economy? sgr maybe -- economy? >> maybe. maybe you have to break eggs to make the omelette, but dave, he has a problem in the farm belt. a lot of resentment of soybean tariffs that the europeans will impose. this is a rocky ride for a while. the other thing i say quickly. a lot of u.s. business leaders who were confident last year after regulatory reform and tax cuts. now they have something to be uncertain over. they are not certain how the tariffs will work out. that is a slight negative after a year of great business confidence. >> i'm with you with the worry about the midwest. i was in the midwest a come weeks ago. farmers having to decide to plant corn or soybeans. china buys soybeans from the spring in north america.
that has a big effect. >> christine, if you are a multinational firm and they plant three or four years in advance, how do you make plans when you are not sure how ugly this war could get? i argue this gets worse before it gets better. >> why are stocks doing so well? dow above 25,000. stock market is reflecting what boris johnson said. not what we're talking about right now. >> yes. the atlanta fed has a widely followed index. last week, they came out with an astonishing prediction that gdp growth in this quarter could be 4.8%. >> oh, my gosh. >> you hear people talk about growth of 4% or better, that say bullish story. >> i heard someone say you need a trade war to strengthen the economy. all right. greg valliere, have a great weekend. >> thank you. hoist the cup. >> a long time senate staffer
allegedly lying to agents in unauthorized leaks. james wolfe lied to fbi agents in december about his contacts with three reporters. in some cases, using an encrypted messaging app. wolfe worked under leadership of both parties since 1997. >> the times reports that prosecutors seized years of phone and e-mail records of one of his reporters. the government did not obtain the contents of the e-mails and calls. the reporter allie watkins had been dating wolfe for three years. she denies receiving classified information. prosecutors are not letting up on the aggressive efforts to deter leaks which were also used under the obama administration. president trump boasting no need for prep work for the
summit with north korea next week. it doesn't seem to bother his secretary of state. >> there were few days that i left the oval office after having briefed the president that we did not talk about north korea. over months and months and days and days, president trump has been receiving briefings on this issue. i'm very confident the president will be fully prepared when he meets with his north korean counterpart. >> now the president says he may even invite kim jong-un to the united states. let's bring in anna coren live in tokyo. good morning. >> reporter: christine, a bit of a surprise in this part of the world when they heard president trump rolling out the red carpet for kim jong-un. obviously they want constructive talks to come out of the summit in singapore next week. a little taken aback he was so eager to extend the offer of friendship. what is the definition of successful talks? we don't know.
does it mean full denuclearization of the korean peninsula? we know that is a deal breaker to the talks starting. secretary of state mike pompeo saying he has been given that commitment. we have not heard it from the north koreans. does it mean a compromise? an allowing kim to keep shorter-range missiles which could hit this part of the world or in exchange giving up longer-range icbms that hit the united states? does it mean good chemistry between trump and kim which carries a lot of weight as far as donald trump is concerned. as far as trump saying this is going to be a summit filled with substance, not just optics. take a listen. >> this will not be just a photo-op. this will be a minimum we start with a good relationship and that is something that is very important toward the ultimate making of the deal. i would love to say it could
happen in one deal. maybe it can. >> reporter: look, he loves a deal and let's hope he can strike a deal. christine, this is an extremely complex situation that previous u.s. administrations have attempted and failed. many experts believe that kim jong-un will never fully give up his nuclear weapons program because it is so vital to the regime and also to his leadership. christine. >> a longer process now with the north korea issue. we are further along than we have been in years. no question. anna in tokyo. thank you. it appears rudy giuliani's act is starting to wear a bit thin with the trump inner circle. the day after the president's lawyer said this. >> insulted the vice president. they insulted his national security adviser. he said we will not have a summit under those circumstances. kim jong-un got back on his hands and knees and begged for it. >> secretary of state mike
pompeo responding this way. >> we're focused on the important things. i know rudy. rudy doesn't speak for the administration when it comes to this negotiation and set of issues. >> giuliani weighed in on the stormy daniels saga and whether melania trump believes her husband about the alleged affair. >> she believes her husband. i don't think there is a slight suspicion it is not true. >> the day later, the first lady's spokeswoman said i don't believe mrs. trump has ever discussed her thoughts on anything with mr. giuliani. the first lady has never publicly addressed the stormy daniels story. as for a response, giuliani tells cnn he never interviewed melania trump about stormy daniels. clearly the first lady's office not happy he is speaking for her. he doesn't speak for her. mitt romney has called the
president a fake and con man, but the republican senate candidate in utah believes he will win a second term. he attended a retreat of business leaders. he says i think the democratic friends will nominate someone out of the mainstream american thought. since launching his senate bid, romney has praised the actions of the president, but la sdlsme the bombastic style. >> he is a businessman. uber wants to know if you are drunk when you are looking for a ride. it is turning to artificial intelligence for an answer.
