tv CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin CNN June 8, 2018 12:00pm-1:00pm PDT
it fills the gap wondering why she did spend those five nights in the hospital when some speculated it could have been an outpatient procedure. now that we know it was a four-hour operation and she can't fly for a month, eight lot more information. her office is saying she's up and running and will be doing more soon. >> thank you. thanks for staying with us here on cnn, in today for brooke baldwin. president trump is at a session on economic growth and the future of work. just moments ago he took part in what is known of course as the family photo. you see prime minister justin trudeau next to him who is hosting. the president standing with these world leaders for a picture. but when it comes to policy, president trump is standing alone, denying north american,
european nations when it comes to the iran nuclear deal. the paris climate accord and on the u.s. imposing trade tariffs on key allies. now there is a new reason observers say the better year for this year's g7 could be g6 versus one. president trump today saying russia should be included in the summit. >> russia should be in the meeting. whether you like it or not, and it may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run and in the g hg7, which useo be the g8, they threw russia out and we should have russia at the negotiating table. >> russia was forced out of the summit after it seized the land of another country. boris sanchez, the leaders are
polite, smiling as they took that pictures together. one of the quickest family photos i certainly have ever seen. how overall is president trump being received? >> reporter: it was certainly a blink and you miss it moment. we expected the possibility that there may be some fires here at the g. the president publicly feuding with some here, including french president macron and you had macron and president trump sharing a private, cordial discussion, saying he was attempting to find some common ground with president trump, not on on the issue of trade but also on a slew of other things that the president is divided
from some of the united states closest and longest standing allies, or this new issue the president brought up of russia apparently rejoining the g7, remaking the g8 so to speak, something that likely is music to the ears of vladimir putin, not just the invitation but the fact there is another rift between the president and some of the united states' closest allies. >> just to confirm, boris, as we wait to see the fallout from the conference, the president planned to leave early to make his way to singapore. is that still the plan? >> that appears to be the case. the president announcing that president trump would be leaving a few hours early on saturday. he indicated he was less than
enthusiastic about coming to the g7, the president saying he is happy to be here. >> fareed zakaria joins us. let's start with russia here. things were already somewhat contentious i think it's fair to say moving in to this g7. is this just really adding fuel to that fire? >> it is and it seems as with so often the things that donald trump does, impulsive, unstrategic, unthought through. russia was never part of the g7, by the way. they created a separate body called the g8 in which russia was included as a favor and a gesture to include russia as a sign that was being ent grated in the work. russia does not deserve to be even in the g8. it is not the eighth largest economy in the world. the g7 has traditionally been the seven largest economy in the world that had similar values as
such. russia by my count is the 11th largest economy in the world. it not true on the merits. russian behavior suggests it is not eager to be integrated into the western or rules-based order. it is trying to destroy the western rules-based order by invading ukraine, by engaging in various kind of cyber warfare and interference in western democracies. so in the light of that to return to this idea of, as i say, doing a huge favor to russia is puzzling and it does rurnt us to that central question that we've always had be been, the only one he ever has a nice thing to say about it russia. >> it is true, despite the fact that he was saying earlier today -- i'm paraphrasing here,
essentially saying no one's been tougher on russia. even though it may be an impulsive comment, where does that idea come from and what does it say about the broader relationship? as we look at this as well, just that picture alone, it was remarkable as we were watching earlier, as they took this picture, just how quickly everybody dispersed. what is your sense about what that says about la wi-- what wi actually come out of this? >> a certainly amount of international relations is personal chemistry. it the abili it's the ability of leaders to trust themselves and see themselves as part of a common project. it's pretty clear that does not exist with donald trump. we know angela merkel said she had to run for a fourth term
just to preserve the western alliance now in the face of what donald trump represents. and we've seen it with emmanuel macr macron, who they were seen as good buddies. he doesn't notice this is all part an overall package. the u.s. got a lot. you can uls in retrospect but you don't point out that american services or technology companies have free, it's the only area where europe speaks with one voice. there is a single eu
commissioner and the european market is largest than the united states. that is the single largest market in the world right now. it's a little unstrategic to be picking fights with them. >> it's also fascinating to see the way some of these relationships have changed. and especially. also, of all those who believe that the world is built only together with the u.s. president there before the opening of the g7. that's remarkable, especially when you put it against this new cover of "the economist," which shows president trump as miley cyrus in the "wrecking ball" video. is that how president trump is
seen by the rest of the world? is that the way the united states is seen by the rest of the world? >> there's no question that that is how donald trump is seen by the rest of the world. it essentially said america is not committed to the rules based order that it created after world war ii. we now know president xi jinping said to barack obama in their last meeting, if the united states is going to be led by a new responsible leader who creates problems and tension and disorder in the world, the world will know whom to blame. meaning that is on you, the united states, not on the chinas and russias of the world. so i think the feeling is fai y ly widespread. there have been countries that
thought they could play donald trump, whether it the chinese initially, whether it's the south korean president who lashesly praises him to keep him on board. given the power of the united states and the need for these countries to cooperate how many blo global leaders are publicly dissenting and disputing donald trump almost every week. >> that is a little bit more of a shift. in terms of i just want to shift a little built here, tit here b president is going to be leaving early as he makes his way to singapore. we're told it could be more than a meet and greet. the president saying he does plan to bring up human rights violations. do you see that happening, especially if this turns into a meet and greet? >> i hope he does. because this whole thing has been badly planned and badly thought through.
genuinely presidential summi summits -- that have been negotiated over lower level officials by sometimes weeks or months and this caps it. if the leaders meet and they aren't able to come up with a bre breakthrough, it north korea is basically the most repressive country in the world. president trump has very harsh words for iran and its leaders. it i do hope he brings up the repression and human rights. i hope he brings up the issue of but most importantly i hope me brings up the issue of nuclear weapons and the fact that what
the united states seeks is the complete denuclearization of north korea. donald trump has been too eager for the summit, too eager for a success and you only have to read "the art of the deal" to see that is one of the signature flaws -- that's a rookie mistake that negotiators make. >> all appreciate your insight. thank you. >> be sure to tune in for a special report "the two faces of kim jong un." th that. >> special counsel robert mueller slapping new charges on trump's former campaign chairman paul manafort. what's in this new indictment? what does it mean? we'll have those breaking deal dee tails for you next. coast o. i think it's why we've been doing this...forever. my dad has roots in the mountains of northern mexico. home to the strongest runners in the universe. my dad's ancestors were african bantu.
i bet they told the most amazing stories. with twice the detail of other tests... ...ancestrydna can show dad where he's from- and strengthen the bonds you share. it's only $69. give it to dad for father's day. but prevagen helps your brain with an ingredient it's only $69. originally discovered... in jellyfish. in clinical trials, prevagen has been shown to improve short-term memory. prevagen. the name to remember.
of quebec, canada, you see president trump and prime minister justin trudeau there in their discussions. chancellor angela merkel of germany. there has been so much focus on this meeting at the g7. there would be normally but obviously tensions have escalated a bit, certainly as we've learned more about some of the communications between president trump and prime minister trudeau, as well president macron of france, what that could mean. the president said he'll be leaving a couple of hours early to make his way to singapore. of course because he is preparing for that meeting on tuesday, june 12th for north korea. as we take a look at this and you see all these world leaders assembled there, round table, no head of the table there of course. yet there we see the host, prime minister justin trudeau, there a number of important topics they'll be discussing.
and they're split up among different days and what they'll be talking about. as we move into this afternoon session, i want to bring in correspondent boris sanchez joining us from quebec city with a closer look at what is happening this afternoon. this is also working up to, what we anticipate to be a meeting and the prime minister trudeau in just a couple of hours. >> that's right. a very important , somebody considering the recent attacks and jabs on twitter. to be a fly on the wall wa be fascinating considering some of the tense language we've heard not on from trudeau but also from macron. the president calling them both out for unfair trade practices. the president has a tendency to
be bombastic and often aggressive when it comes to calling out his perceived -- here we'll likely see an aggressive push by president trump to defend america's first policies and then his attempt to try to president trump, to convince him to keep the g7. president trump has long touted his ability to strike a deal. so before he left for quebec, he spoke with reporters saying that this will be just fine, we will all fall in love once more. the question is ultimately, what
does that look like for the united states? is there really a trade war looming? larry kudlow, the national economic council director said this is something akin to a family quarrel. we do know the president less-thless less than enthusiastic about attending it meeting. and he's planning to leave early so perhaps the president letting his actions speak louder than his words. >> thank you. today robert mueller filing a new indictment against paul manafort. manafort now facing a count of obstruction of justice and conspiracy to on books on strub justice.
evan peros joins us with the very latest. >> the former chairman of the cup campaign, we also have a new person, the 20th person now charged in the robert mueller investigation. his name is konstantin kilimnik. we've seen him cited in documents but not by name. this is the first time we've seen him named in any of these court documents. today they charge him with these exact charges. he is a former associate of paul manafort. he worked with paul manafort's company in ukraine. and according to the fbi, they considered him to be somebody who was closely associated with russian intelligence. so here these charges have been filed today in federal court in washington. we still have not yet heard paul manafort's -- his attorney's response to these allegations that were made by the special counsel earlier this week, and
manafort was said to be trying to coach people in their testimony before the special counsel. and one of the people he was accused of doing that with is konstantin kilimnik. he's a russian citizen and believed to be living either in russia or ukraine. according to the government, he is somebody who is closely associated with russian intelligence. he's the 20th person now charged in this investigation, erica. >> joining me now to discuss, former justice department prosecutor, joe, what's your take on these two new charges? >> erica, this is like being in a hole and then continuing to dig rather than stop digging. the worst thing you can do when you're out on bail and awaiting
trial is to tamper with witnesses. it's one thing to explain your story. mr. manafort can say what happened was years ago but this is something that happened within the last few months allegedly. it's going to be difficult to stand in front of a judge and ask to be out on jail when -- >> and he's under house arrest. he's has not one but two it also bolsles the mind that someone doesn't say trust down the, i always tell defendants, don't be talking to the witnesses, we'll
reach out to the witnesses. now, it's not a crime and usually the parent no now of course the government is saying you're trying to convince them to testify that way. so he's dug a bigger hole. i would say it's like one avalanche hits you, now a second one hits you. he's got an enormous number of charges. he's facing jail time that would have him die in prison if he's convicted. so he's in -- facing very, very serious trouble. >> is that enough, though, to get somebody to do what the government wants essentially? >> i think it depends on what he thinks is going to ultimately happen. he's obviously fought hard all along saying he's innocent of these charges and he'll prove it in court. but he also has a president sitting in office who is fond of
using pardons. after his trial is over, the president couldn't decide to pardon him. so we don't know what paul manafort has in mind but i'm sure he's been thinking about that. >> the president was actually askeder it's a little early to talk about a pardonon but that's exactly what rear do. that done change anything, though, when it comes to the investigation. it doesn't change the way that this is happening and in terms of the way they're going about their jobs. >> it shouldn't, right? these are two different tracks and the president has the right to convey pardons, he has obviously exercised that right recently and he has us talking about whether or not this is something he's doing potentially to kind of hang out there so people who know are people under
the but it should not change the investigation and special counsel mueller will actual or tolerating any kiefin. >> multiple charges now for paul manafort. as evan pointed out, there are now 20 individuals involved here, three companies. any time there's a new drichlt kil nick supposedly has connections to he was thought to be person a. why wasn't he indicted earlier? was manafort trying to maybe work with him to try to testify against manafort and he didn't cooperate? hard to say. all of a sudden very late in the

>> apparently a u.s. service member was killed in combat in somalia, in africa. four other service members wounded when their unit came under attack from unknown insurgents in son somalia. the four wounded have been medevaced out. they were working with local forces in the region of somalia. it will bring up questions again about u.s. troops operating in remote areas of africa, especially after four were killed in niger in the person part of africa. this is an area of very heavy insurgent activity. u.s. troops have been there helping fight against that al qaeda affiliate known as
al-shabaab. a u.s. navy seal killed in somalia also last year. the pentagon trying to put together at this hour an official statement, trying to get word obviously to these american military families today about what has occurred. erica? >> barbara, i appreciate it. thank you. >> it has been a painful day for many of us here at cnn. like you week started our day with tough news, the death of anthony bourdain, a chef, a world traveler, an inspiration to so many. we honor his life, his passion and his love of adventure next. stay with us. your company is constantly evolving.
and the decisions you make have far reaching implications. the right relationship with a corporate bank who understands your industry and your world can help you make well informed choices and stay ahead of opportunities. pnc brings you the resources of one of the nation's largest banks, and a local approach with a focus on customized insights. so you and your company
bourdain to feel truly sadded a -- saddened and gutted and out of words. the host of -- was an incredibly gifted chef, a fearless traveler, a restless spirit, he broke boundaries and brought an unmistakable soul to cnn. >> you went to a market where they sold a whole pig, right? >> all great climates get to a play where they eventually sold a pig.
>> is it appropriate to pop one of these suckers in your mouth or be a little more -- >> well, slurping is totally acceptable in this part of the world. >> i try to pace myself. a rule of thumb we all follow on the crew is if the local people are eating it and a lot of them are eating it, meaning if it's a street stall, it doesn't look particularly hygienic, and it's packed with people and all of them eating something unidentifiable, we will eat that and we'll eat it with gusto and chances are it will be good and there will be no payback. >> cheers. >> cheers. how did you not get any stuff all over your face? >> the smithsonian once called him the elvis of bad boy chefs. he may have been a bad boy but he was a good man. he was candid about his own
struggles around addiction. he dined with dignitaries, dunkenly gdunk -- drunkenly got tattoos. tony was 61. his death comes as a complete shock to his family and friend and he leaves behind his 11-year-old daughter. i want to bring with us with carla, co-host of "the chew." you tweeted you were gutted. when you think about tony, though, and it brings a smile to your face, what are those thoughts, those moments that i imagine you're focusing on now? >> when i was listening to the clip, i think about he was just an incredible storyteller. he reminded us that food is the one place where you allow people
to be different and you accept those differences and you go all in with those differences and you tell stories and you sit around and you're eating and you're all the same. >> i was speaking with another chef earlier who said in terms of picking up on what you said that reminding us that people are different and this chef said to me in reading his book "kitchen confidential" years ago, he felt it gave him the license to be who he was and be different and be a part of that restaurant culture. >> mm-hmm. >> how important was anthony bourdain in that respect in terms of giving people a license to be themselves sm. >> i think when it comes to food, you can't homogenize everyone. by going into the world and showing different cultures, even in the kitchen, it's like be who you are because this the thing you have to share with other
people. you don't need to be like everyone else. and he was doggedly just, you know, when he felt like you were sort of giving in and becoming just ordinary and the same, he talked about you. he was like what is this crap? i mean, if you made a different on "top chef" and it was nasty, he was like what is this? it's all brown. you had three hours to make this crap? and you're like, oh, dang, snap. thank you for calling me out on that. i think he was the type of person because you knew he was authentic and brutally honest and he didn't sugar coat the truth, you're like whatever i got from tony bourdain, it was the truth and i could hang my hat on that. if it was something bad, you knew there was a place to get better. if it was something great, you
knew you worked to stay there. i as you said if you were on the bottom, you got feedback, when you were on the top you get feedback. when you're in the middle, you get nothing because there's nobody telling you how to get better. tony was passionate about what he believed in and you always felt that passion. whenever he's talking about you getting better or whatever, you were like, you're right. he was very passionate. he came on "the chew" twice as a guest. i think the funny thing about tony, even though he was an incredible storyteller and a little funny, there was a part of him that was a little shy. it was interesting to see him in that light. the way he talked about his daughter was just so tender and gentle as a dad. >> i think that really gives you insight into who a person is. becoming a parent is such a -- it's indescribable until you
become a parent and fully describe and embrace it and the way he would talk about his daughter and the impact of becoming a father had on him, that was really profound. >> mm-hmm. i mean, to become a father at 50 and when i think he said, you know, that's at the point where he felt like he was old enough to be a dad. it really wasn't about the age, it was about what he felt to be that great dad. and you look at pictures and you see him on instagram with just his hand and his daughter's hand on his and it's a beautiful picture. that's who tony was. he was a very passionate, heartfelt man. >> that is a beautiful way to remember him. carla hall, i really appreciate your time to share some of your memories with us today. thank you. >> thank you so much. >> also joining us is the chief
medical officer with crisis text line. we're talking to because we can't ignore there is a really important mental health aspect to this. we know that tony took his own life. he is the second well-known person we've seen this week after the death of kate spade. and all of this coming on the heels of new numbers from the cdc about the rise in suicides in this country. what are we missing from this conversation, doctor? >> well, first of all, our condolences to both the spade and the bourdain families. these are tragedies that just ripple through communities and the nation. so what are we missing? potentially we're missing the ability to have the conversation, the ability for someone to reach out to a friend, to reach out to a family member and say i see yourself not yourself, i see that you're sad or that your behavior has changed, is there anything wrong? is there anything i can do? are you feeling like you're
going to hurt yourself? i believe people feel afraid to open that door and ask that questio question, whether someone is feeling like they're going to kill themselves. often times in asking that question and opening the door for the conversation, you allow somebody to be vulnerable and say yes, i need help. and you can partner with them to help them get resources or services they need. >> i know that men have three to five time higher rates of suicide and the highest increase seen through 2016 was among middle-aged adults. is part of this tied back stig you have, especially if you're a man, that makes you weak, which
we immediate to get away from? >> we definitely do. mental illness can affect people of all ages. we need to move past thinking that someone has to be strong or that seeking the resources of a therapist or a psychiatrist exemplifies weakness or an inability to take care of yourself or your family. we are losing people because they do not feel comfortable reaching out for necessary help. and i think in people who are middle aged are feeling at th that -- that they should be in a certain place in their lives and shouldn't need assistance, perhaps, or they're reflecting back on their life or what could have been or what they might have wanted to accomplish. but the point is at any age resources and services are available. >> and it so important, as you said, too, if you see any of these signs, we just had some up on the screen there for us not to be able to ask the question
if we're concerned about someone. doctor, i appreciate you joining us and everything that you're doing there at crisis text line as well. i hope you've seen for our viewers at home the number on the screen there. it is so important. write this down. it easy to find online. help is available 24 hours a day. if you need it, if someone you know needs it, as we just heard, don't be afraid to ask the question, to reach out. you can save a life. >> we are going to continue to remember our friend and colleague, to celebrate the life of anthony bourdain. this evening we are sharing his talent, we're sharing his stories. please tune in to a special tribute on cnn. it haairs tonight at 10 p.m. eastern right here on cnn. we'll be right back. ancestrydna told my dad he comes from the
southern coast of ireland. i think it's why we've been doing this...forever. my dad has roots in the mountains of northern mexico. home to the strongest runners in the universe. my dad's ancestors were african bantu. i bet they told the most amazing stories. with twice the detail of other tests... ...ancestrydna can show dad where he's from- and strengthen the bonds you share. it's only $69. give it to dad for father's day. it's only $69. here's the story of green mountain coffee roasters sumatra reserve. let's go to sumatra. the coffee here is amazing. because the volcanic soil is amazing. so we give farmers like win more plants. to grow more delicious coffee. which helps provide for win's family. all, for a smoother tasting cup of coffee. green mountain coffee roasters.

moments ago house democrats sending a letter to the fbi and the justice department asking for a criminal investigation into epa administrator scott pruitt saying he has used his public office for personal gain. new reports this week alone show pruitt asked a security detail to get his dry-cleaning and look for a specific moisturizing lotion and having staffers fetch his food and taking advantage. those are some of the controversies but the list is lengthy. president trump when asked about this in his support, here is what he had to say earlier today. >> scott pruitt is doing a great job within the walls of epa. we're setting records, outside he's being attacked very viciously by the press. i'm not saying he's blameless but we'll see what happens.
>> joining me to discuss is brian cara man andelina plot. we look at this. and the president said i'm not saying he's blameless, but -- and taking a look at this letter from house democrats what, is your take here? >> scott pruitt is there at the president's whim and there with a mission. that mission is to tear down and destroy the epa as we know and love it. so the president is quite happy with what scott pruitt is doing. no matter how many used mattresses or ringside seats, lotion -- lotions in -- the guy is like a quentin tarantino character out of a movie but he's not going any where because the president likes what he's doing and it will take a criminal investigation to get him out of office and maybe that won't happen, maybe he'll pardon him to or maybe a pardon for tony soprano and the guy is there and will stay there as long atz president wants him
there. >> and that is a fair point because the next question is how does he still have a job but elena, that is why because the president is happy with what he's doing in terms of his work. >> exactly. and i think one thing that i think is really important to stress when talking about scott pruitt, the other day i reported that milan hop resigned after her name being caught up in the headlines about being tasked to call about the used mattress and all of the ridiculous things and yet ultimately she's the one who feels she needs to resign. so i think what gets lost in the conversation about scott pruitt staying on and how the president seems unwilling to let him go at any inclination whatsoever, is that people below him, young political professionals are having careers marked by him and potentially long-term damaging ways. >> and destroyed by him. and as i said, that is also -- the big point -- we get caught up in the minutia or side bar or side show of the event, but
don't misunderstand. this president has an agenda and he's doing it with pruitt and with the other -- with betsy devos and others. they came in with a plan. their plan is to deconstruct the federal government and that is what they are doing. and the president -- so he's quite happy with what scott pruitt is doing and people i know that have been in the epa for 20, 30 years are scared to death when this strair administration is over with, so will the epa be. >> this is a letter that we're talking about from house democrats. is there a sense this is going to have an impact and would push forward an investigation? >> honestly, i don't get that sense at all. even if there is an investigation we've seen the i.g. probe, multiple scandals, over 12 i think it is, and we've gotten results such as the i.g. is saying that scott pruitt broke the law for instance when he installed a $34,000 sound proof booth in his office and yet we've seen nothing come of that. so i'm not particularly
optimistic this will lead to anything punitive. >> i think they'll have to drag him away in chains before anything would happen and even then he'll just get a pardon. >> well we'll look to see what else happens next week in the world of development. but i appreciate you both joining us here. >> sure. stay with us. we'll be right back after this short break. i'm your phone, stuck down here between your seat and your console, playing a little hide-n-seek. cold... warmer... warmer... ah boiling. jackpot. and if you've got cut-rate car insurance, you could be picking up these charges yourself. so get allstate, where agents help keep you protected from mayhem... ...like me. mayhem is everywhere. are you in good hands? you might or joints.hing for your heart... but do you take something for your brain. with an ingredient originally found in jellyfish, prevagen is the number one selling brain-health supplement in drug stores nationwide.
