tv Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs CNN June 13, 2018 2:00am-2:59am PDT
president trump lands at ins fresh off his summit with kim jong-un. can the president deliver a verifiable deal to denuke the korean peninsula? back the president or pack your bags. voters sending a clear message to lawmakers in primaries nationwide. and the 2026 world cup will be awarded in just hours. will it be morocco or north america, and how could the president's policies on immigration impact the vote, perhaps tip the scales in morocco's favor? good morning, everyone, welcome to "early start." i'm dave briggs. christine romans is off today. it is 5:00 eastern time, june 13th. it is 5:00 a.m. in the st. 6:00 p.m. in pyongyang. we'll tell you why a raccoon is topping the trending charts on twitter in a moment. we start with the president landing at joint base andrews in
about a half hour. we'll show that as it happens. this following his historic meeting with north korean leader kim jong-un. the president has plenty of work to do to show the summit was more than just a photo op. trump's announcement that the u.s. will stop military exercises with south korea, what he called provocative war games, caught tokyo and seoul offguard. the "wall street journal" reports the military would continue to train with its south counterparts but not large-sc joint exercises. a lack of clarity causing confusion on capitol hill and elsewhere. critics and experts say the president made significant concessions to kim without getting anything meaningful in return. 24 hours later, the white house still has not explained how the u.s. will verify north korean denuclearization. some observers like former director of national intelligence james clapper give the president credit for moving things in the right direction. >> a much better place where
we're on the diplomatic path as opposed to where we were six or eight months ago. that's the only real solution here in my mind. but remember, kim jong-s not term limited. and he's in it for the long game, and i think president trump is more in it for the immediate self-gratification. >> president trump may know something about the art of the deal, but now it's on mike pompeo to close the deal. the secretary of state expected to land in seoul any time now. he'll brief the south koreans on the trump-kim summit. then he's charged with negotiating an agreement. that leads to the denuclearization of the korean peninsula. and for the first time since president trump and kim jong-un shook hands, we are get something reaction from the north korean regime. nic robertson joining us live from soeeoul with the latest. good morning, nic. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, dave. i mean, this isn't the kind headline or coverage the united states ever gets from the north koreans. the united states until now, it
has been the archenemy, the nemesis of leader kim jong-un. now glowing rhetoric is flowing forth from their state news agency, and it's worth reading out one of their lines here. it is so significant because they don't do thisthey do not p states in this way. in the past, here is what they're saying, president trump expressed his belief that the summit will improve the united states-north korea relations and also said the supreme leader's active and peace-loving measures that were start earlier this year established peace and stability on the korean peninsula. saying there precisely that president trump is giving -- is giving praise to kim jong-un for everything that he has done. that would b typical in north korea to praise kim jong-un but not to praise president trump. mike pompeo, of course, arriving here in minutes we expect into south korea where he will meet tomorrow, thursday, with the
president, with the foreign minister and with japan's foreign minister to begin explaining some of the things president trump has been talking about because here in south korea, there's been a little bit of consternation about this issue of suspending joint military exercises. the word we're getting here is they want to understand precisely what president trump is intending by this. whether there seems to be a willingness on the south korean part to work with the united states on whatever president trump wants to a degree so they can improve the important, peaceful relationship that is the key to their security and peace in the future here. dave? >> certainly a lack of clarity now at 6:04 in seoul. nic robertson for us, thank you. the true impact of the trump-kim summit may not be known for years. for now, one country has mergesed as a clear winner -- has emerged as a clear winner, china. let's bring in matt rivers. is this exactly what the chinese may have been hoping for at least after one day?
>> reporter: you know, it's hard to look at the strategic interests that china has on the korean peninsula and then compare that to what happened in singapore yesterday. wor the president trump. china's got to be pretty happy. start with what president trump said about the removal of troops from the korean peninsula. he said it's not on the table as of yet, but he specifically said that he wants toremove.s. troops from the korean peninsula at some point. so does china. china has wanted that for decades now, since the end of the korean war. they have always felt threatened, constrained by the presence of the u.s. military on the korean peninsula. that made them happy. move to the military exercises that president trump says at least for now are suspended. he called them war games. china calls them an annoyance, and they hate them as much as the north koreans do because, remember dave, those exercises are done not only with an eye on north korea but also on china. when you take those two things combined, you get a beijing government that is looking at this and going this couldn't have gone much better for us at
least to start. on thursday we know secretary of state mike pompeo will be coming here to beijing to meet with the foreign minister of china. they are likely to give some sort of short press availability. that is something we'll be attending and very close attention to. >> indeed. ian bremmer from the eurasia group said the freeze for a freeze exactly the formation the chineseave asked for. he'll be on "new day" later this morning to explain how they were the big winner. matt rivers live for us in beijing. thank you, my friend. joining us to discuss the summit and political implications, political director zach wolf. good to see you, sir. let's start with the positive if we can. is the world a safer place as a result of the singapore summit, how so? >> well you don't have president trump slinging nuclear-tinged insults at north korean lead and vice-versa. they're talking to each other, moving forwards, that
seems undeniably safer than if they're issuing threats, no doubt. >> but this deal as the president described it compreive, this four-point plan, certainly not comprehensive. but not a lot of criticism from conservatives. save for this -- influentialervn shapiro on fox saying this about the lack of details and deliverables in the paperwork. >> this is a slave state with 25 million prisoners and a gulag system hundreds of thousands of people wide. the president's praise for the dictator of nor korea was disquieting. here's the reality -- diplomacy is a tactic, it is not an outcome. the triumphalism is not justified yet. maybe president trump got serious concessions out of the kim family, but that would be the first time. virtually every other president has failed in doing that. the paper that got signed
yesterday is, frankly, weak. >> the piece of paper is, frankly, weak. ari fleischer said it feels like the agreede '90s all over ain. what i the take in responding specifically among republicans about what was or was not accomplished? >> republicans are being quiet. you saw lindsey graham who's been very loud about north korea and suggested the use of military action there pretty recently, you know, saying essentially this is a good start. there's note to say than that since not much happened other than the meeting it says. the idea of bringing u.s. troops back, i think, from south korea caught the pentagon and congress flat footed. it's just an idea, but i think that was surprising to a lot of people. i think they're going to wait and see what's going to happen here. you're not going to see a lot of criticism at the moment from his own party, from president trump. he's really in the driver's seat on this. >> yeah. we're going to talk a bit about what happened in the primaries
with specifically mark sanford who has been critical of the president, didn't even make it out of last night, didn't even make it out of the primary. what does that have to do with ithave conservatives learned thr lesson that if you speak up against this president you are out? >> yeah. i don't think mark sanford has anything specifically to do with north korea. but -- >> looking forward, not looking back, but looking forward, how will conservatives learn from what they saw last night? >> right. he's been a consistent critic of the president. was used to be a never trumper. so, you know, his losing to somebody who's much more supportive of the president shows that in primaries specifically that the base of the party is totally aligned with this president. and that party members who are in congress, in the senate, who have been critical of him, jeff flake is another example who's retired rather than face a primary. it's going to be hard to get out
of primaries if they're being critical of the president. >> you wonder moving forward who is the check on the president if we don't get debles, if w don't get verification on the north korean nuclear program. zach wolf, back to you the next half hour. thank you, sir. >> thanks. ahead, two women kicked out of an uber in nor whkissing. hear the exchange and what the driver is saying next.

cnn projects republican mark sanford won't even make it into the runoff for the gop primary for his house seat in south carolina. the president endorsed the challenger, state rep katy arrington, hours before the polls closed with a tweet that said sanford is better off in argentina. that, of course, a shot at sanford's scandal-rocked time as governor which ended when he jetted off with his mistress instead of hiking the appalachian trail. sanford, a frequent trump critic, told supporters he has no regrets. >> it may have cost me an election in this case, but i stand by every one of those decisions to disagree withhe president because i didn't think -- at the end of the day, it would be concurrent with the promises i made when i first ran for office or the voices of the people of the first district that i represent. >> cnn also projecting corey stewart will win the republican senate nomination in california. he built his career championing confederate symbols. his opponent in november, senator tim kaine, heavily
favored to win. two vulnerable incumbent senators found out who they'll face in november. north dakota democrat heidi heitkamp will go up against republican congressman kevin kramer. and in nevada, republican dean heller will face congresswoman jacky rosen. that's a seat democrats are breaking overnight, republicans announcing there will be a vote in the house next week on two immigration bills. last night, gop leaders reached an agreement that satisfied conservatives and headed off a moderate-led revolt. one of the bills, a conservative measure that's not expected to pass. the other still being drafted and expected to offer a solution for dac recipients while adding resources for border security. the senate has not indicated whether it will take up the bill if it does pass the house. two new york city women say an uber driver kicked them out of his car thi weekend aft saw them kissing in the back seat. >> what's the issue? >> i said first time, don't do

[ bleep ] >> anyone can kiss in uber. >> you're sick -- >> you're sick. >> you don't have to do this -- >> rig now -- >> the women tell cnn several minutes after their kiss, the driver pulled ov, opened the passenger door, and told them to get out. the driver is identified as ahmad el butari. his new york city tax license has been suspended pending an investigation. he told "the daily news" that he was uncomfortable with their behavior. he said they played loud videos, and one put her feet up on the seats, a claim the couple denies. stormy weather moving into the northeast bringing a chance of damaging winds and hail. allison chinchar with the latest. the maioncern for today is going to be the chance for severe weather across areas of the northeast. the rain chances extend back toward texas as this is producing a pretty wide swath of

it is also 4:31 central time in minneapolis where a raccoon is shutting down twitter with the hash tag #mprraccoon. there is the president's plane coming to a stop. if he stops to talk with reporters which you never know, we will take the words as the president delivers them, perhaps reacting to some of the criticism of the lack of details from this north korean deal. following his historic meeting with north korean leader kim jong-un, the president has plenty of work to do to show the summit was more than just a photo op. trump's announcement that the united states would stop military exercises with south korea caught some offguard. the "wall street journal" reports the military would continue to train with its south korean counterparts but not large-scale joint exercises. so the lack of clarity causing some confusion on capitol hill and elsewhere. critics and experts say the president made significant concessions to kim without
getting anything meaningful in return. 24 hours later, the white house has not expla how the u.s. will verify north korean denuclearization. some observers like former director of national intelligence james clapper give the president credit for moving things in the right direction. >> we're in a much better place path as opposed to where we c were, say, six or eight months ago. that's the only real solution here in my mind. remember, kim jong-un is not term limited. he's in it for the long game, and i think president trump is more in it for the, you know, immediate self-gratification. >> president trump may know something about the art of the deal. now it's on mike pompeo to close the deal. the secretary of state, he just landed in seoul, south korea. he'll brief the south koreans on the trump-kim summit. then he's charged with negotiating an agreement that leads to the denuclearization of the korean peninsula. for the first time since president trump and kim jong-un
shook hands, we're getting reaction from the north korean regime. nic robertson live with that from seoul. good morning. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, dave. a warm, glowing reaction from the north korean regime, absolu. never really heard of before where they would praise the united states or president trump directly. this is what they're saying -- they're saying preside trump pr summit will improve the u.s.-north korean relations and said that the supreme leader's active and peace-loving measures that were starting earlier in year established peace and stability on the korean peninsula. so praising president trump, praising kim jong-un which is not surprising, that's what they normally do. also praising president trump's praise of kim jong-un. that is absolutely unusual. so secretary of state mike pompeo has just landed here in south korea about 15 minutes
ago. he didn't brief reporters on the flight, we understand. he will be meeting with president moon, south korea's president, tomorrow morning, thursday morning here. he will also meet the foreign minister of south korea and the expected to update them. the latest we have from the south koreans about the issue and confusion about president trump's statement about ending those joint military training exercises is that they would like to get some clarity,e to knowsely what president trump means. they're also indicating a willingness to work with how the united states plans to move forward with the relationship with north korea because they believe it's fundamental to their peace and security. perhaps we'll hear more from secretary pompeo after he's had a chance to brief his counterparts here and the president here tomorrow. dave? >> for those wondering what was on television during the summit in north korea, it was a musical about mining, of course.
nic robertson live in seoul with the latest. thank you. the true impact of the trump-kim summit may not be known for years and years. one big winner has mergesed for w. that's china. -- has emerged for now. that's china. matt rivers is live in beijing with the latest. matt? >> reporter: you could make a very good argument there that china is just nothing but pleased with the way this summit went, and look specifically what you heard from the president of the united states if you want to find out why china's government is likely very, very happy. start with the fact the president specifically talked about removing u.s. troops from the korean peninsula. he said it's not on the table at the moment, but he said it's something he would like to see well down the road at some point. china wants the exact same thing. they've wanted it for decades now. they feel that stroopu.s. troop the peninsula threaten them, constrain activities. they were happy with that
undoubtedly. china was happy when the president spoke about at least temporarily suspending military exercises, what president trump called war games. china doesn't like the war games, the military exees at all, probably not any more than the north koreans do because those exercises are not only focused on north korea, they're designed with an eye on china, as well. en you take those combined, china has a lot to be happy about. it will be interesting, secretary of state mike pompeo set to come through beijing, meet with the foreign minister in china, that's happening on thursday. we are expecting a press availability with the two men. we'll be paying attention to what secretary of state mike pompeo has to say when in china very, very closely. >> ian berman, author and u.s. foreign policy expert said a freeze for freeze the formation that the chinese have asked for. he'll be on "new day" to explain all of that. matt rivers, live in beijing. thank you. we're continuing to watch screen left there the president of the united states preparing
to deplane from air force one after his trip home. if he speaks to reporters, we will certainly listen in on that. joining us, politics digital director zach wolf live for us in washington. we will, of course, interrupt anything that might be said if the president speaks to reporters. still have not gotten a glimpse of him as he prepares to deplane. let's celebrate the fact that the world is a better place as a result of this singapore summit. but as for the details, how much did the united states get in return, in exchange for giving up what the president calls provocative war games? >> it seems that they got very little concrete yesterday. i think everybody admits that. there's a blanket statement from the north koreans to denuclearization, but they've made that kind of statement before. that's nothing new there. on the other hand, they've given up the -- essentially elevating kim to the level where he can
meet with the u.s. president, with the flags flying behind them, and put him on the level of a major world leader as opposed to, you know, a despot. and they've also given up the idea of theseilitary exercises which makes a lot of people nervous. you're not rea hearing a lot of criticism from congress at the moment. a lot of republicans seem sort of cowed essentially by the president at the moment. particularly on this. they're happy maybe that the temperatures lowered a bit on this. you don't have trump and kim essentially trading nuclear barbs. i think everybody that's a step in the right direction. >> not much different than what we've seen from guarantees in the past from the north korean government as to the process of denuking the peninsula. that starts, we hope,oday with mikepeo in seoul. what the pres sean hannity -- told sean hannity. >> i just think that we are now
going to start the process of denuclearization of north korea. and i believe that he's going back and will start virtually immediately. and he's already indicated that. you look at what he's done. we've got our hostages back, but they've blown up one of their testing sites. their primary testing site in fact, some people said their only testing site. they're getting rid of a missile, that wasn't in the documents, that was done afterwards. they'r getting rid of a missile testing site. they're doing so muchnow. it's a process, and it's moving rapidly. >> with the context the president called the iran nuclear deal the worst deal ever made, how far are we from even getting a deal that resembles the worst deal ever? >> i mean, that was something that took essentially years to negotiate. there was a complicated system of ways to check on iran and verify essentially that they were doing this, these things.
that was something that was, you know, not everybody was sure they were trusting iran, obviously. and trump was chief among those people. the u.s. certifying for a while that iran was living up to its expectations. that framework is not the kind of thing that we're seeing in north korea right now where we have thi broad statement of intention with zero specifics. so as we s to iron out the specifics, i would be shocked if kim went back home and immediately just started saying let's blow everything up while ompeo is still negotiating the details. doesn't seem that that would happen. >> mike pompeo said the "v" matters. now the "v" is all that matters. and that's difficult if not impossible. we had eight hours of quiet, bliss. the president not tweeting. he's back on twitter after this long flight. we're waiting for him to deplane. let me read the tweet from him four minutes ago. "my political representatives didn't want me to get involved
in the mark sanford primary thinking that sanford would easily win. with a few hours left, i felt that katy," state rep katy ring candidate i had to give it a shot. congrats to katy arrington. what is the lesson for speaking out against the president? and as we move forward on the north korea deal, who will check the president if we don't get deliverables from north korea? >> the lesson clearly if you look at mark sanford not going to be returning to congress. if you look at jeff flake, another of the president's more chief in his criticism than sanford, these past comments will come back to haunt you come primary time especially as people who were more supportive of the president challenge never trumpers, essentially people who republicans who did not like the president during the 2016 campaign and said bad things
about him. yes essentially coming home to roost for those -- that's essentially coming home to roost for those people. if you've been critical of the president, you've got to change that come primary time. as far as who's going to check him going forward, i think everybody's waiting to see what the details of this are going to be. nobody wants to upset it with the temperature cooled, kim and trump at the table. it doesn't make sense to raise alarm bells about something potentially as it's still in motion. >> and mike pompeo during the iran negotiations was a strong voice against the deal but also saying congress should have a role here. you wonder if he still feels the same way about whatever happens with north korea. indications are at this point yes. but there were some critical comments from conservatives yesterday given everything that happened in north korea. let's start off with marco
rubio. >> he obviously i would imagine doesn't truly believe the guy's that talented. he inherited the family business from his father and grandfather. the family business is dictatorship. i think the president's trying to butter the guy up to make it easier to geteal with>> i think president has a tendency to say things that are ad hoc, that haven't been vetted.metimes tho walked back after he's had conversations with people that are relevant to what he said. again, i think that's why it's important to get pompeo in. >> to get president trump to back out -- nobody wants a war. look what trump does with canada when he thinks he's wrong. i wouldn't go down that road if i was north korea. deplane from air force one after the long flight back to joint base andrews. shaking hands with military leaders. perhaps we will hear a word or two from the president. we will bring you those if he speaks. let me pick up on what lindsey graham said there, ch.
is the difference in this equation that president trump has made it clear as opposed to presidents past that military action is imminent if north korea doesn't begin the process of permanent denuclearization? >> i'm not sure you can draw a direct line. they want to say that it was his earlier rhetoric that essentially caused north korea to come to the table. i'm not sure that you can definitively say that particularly because they've given so much to north koreans. they've elevated them. they had the pomp and circumstance. they allowed kim to be seen with trump and negotiate directly with the u.s. president. that put the north korean leader on a level that he hasn't been on in the past. i'm not sure we can say specifically it was earlier -- essentially trump threatening t bro him t the table.althought -- we'll be about this for a long time. maybe it will come to be.
>> we certainly will. and north korea in t short term is a clear winner given all the flattery that president trump threw upon kim jong-un, all the praise and talk of chemist chemistry. video of the president back in his car, a short helicopter flight, marine one, to the white house. perhaps he will speak with reporters upon returning to the white house. thank you very much for joining us from washington, d.c. so we're 24 hours from the singapore summit and deflating a nuclear showdown. yet, the top trending top activity twitter at 4:46 central time is the mpr raccoon. we will give you an update about this critter climbing a skyscraper in minnesota and virtually shutting down twitter. oh, you got to, fo this is your wake-up call. if you have moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis, month after month, the clock is ticking on irreversible joint damage.
