good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm dave briggs. can we elect those guys? they know civility. they didn't care about politics. they jumped into action to save somebody. tuesday, june 26th. 5:00 a.m. in the east. good morning. we start with the plea for civility. when it comes to taking responsibility for the uncivil tone, nobody wants to own it. white house press secretary sarah sanders speaking out for the first time since she was asked to leave a virginia restaurant over the weekend. >> i was asked to leave because i work for president trump. healthy debate on ideas and philosophy is important. the calls for harassment and the push for any trump supporter is unacceptable an. we should -- unacceptable. we should be able to disagree without fear of harm. this goes for all people regardless of politics. >> the white house officials say president trump asked sanders to start her briefing with that statement. the restaurant's owner's
2:03 am
decision not to serve her igniting a less than civil debate including this from congresswoman maxine waters on saturday. >> and if you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. and yosh back on them and you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere. >> president trump adding to the incivility calling waters as a low iq person and tweeting be careful what you wish for, max. >> they are good at one thing. what is the term? resist. it is the party of maxine waters, do you believe her? no, no. this has become the party of maxine waters and nancy pelosi. >> maxine waters is trying to clarify her original remarks.
2:04 am
>> i believe in peaceful, very peaceful protests. i have not called for the harm of anybody. this president has lied again when he is saying that i called for harm to anyone. >> waters dialled back after criticism from democrats. nancy pelosi tweeting trump's daily lack of civility is provoking responses that are predictable and unacceptable. and this from chuck schumer. >> no one should call for the harassment of political opponents. that's not right. that's not american. >> how did we get here? critics of the trump administration insist it starts at the top. >> knock the crap out of them, seriously. okay. just knock the hell -- i promise you, i will pay for the legal fees. i promise. >> we're not allowed to punch back anymore. i would like to punch him in the face. >> try not to hurt him.
2:05 am
if you do, i'll defend you in court. don't worry about it. >> whacky jackie is campaigning with pocahontas, you believe this? >> he is a war hero because he was captured. i like people that weren't captured. >> get that son of a [ bleep ] off the field right now. out. he's fired. he's fired. >> with all of the vitriol from the president, many democrats are concerned the emotional response could fuel him. as well as his claims that his supporters are being disrespected. social media confrontations include several heckling of donald trump officials and it has opened a rift in anti-trump outrage is helping or hurting ahead of the midterms. >> let's bring in cnn political reporter brenna williams. a surprise pull from marist
2:06 am
on -- a surprise poll from marist on civility. 67% of americans say it has gotten worse since president trump has been elected. here is ari flescher last night on fox. >> do you agree with maximumnne waters? the press needs a feeding frenzy on the left as they do on the right. it is her turn now. this does lead to things that go too far. you need to stabbnd up now for civil discourse. it is up to the democrats to lead that charge. >> no one is standing up for what mechaniaxine waters said. ari is a former white house press secretary alongside at former press secretary. saying the democrats need to lead that change.
2:07 am
do they? does it start at the top? >> ultimately in politics as in life, we are all responsible for the things we say and do and how we treat other people. i think the big difference here as you showed the president -- now president -- has been saying incendiary things since the campaign. often at rallies in a safe space for him. supporters vanderbi supporters surrounding him. now people are encouraged to whatever extent you read into it to take that out of the spaces where among like-minded people and confront people who might not think the same way as us. taking it out of our heads and maybe twitter and taking it to the streets. taking it to restaurants and things likes that. that is the shift here. politics has never been a civil game. you know, trump was never
2:08 am
insulting john mccain to his face. people were not saying mean things other than at a debate. now it has shifted and it is inn civility in a -- incivility in a new arena. >> and one that reflecting the midwest polling over the long weekend from trump supporters. trump haters have not realized how much they helped with the c condesc condescencion. this idea that the president was elected to rock the boat and overthrow the establishment. every bit of anxiety of civility feeds into that narrative. this is why the president was elected. the more the mainstream and the status quo is up in arms about the behavior of trump and his
2:09 am
affiliates or that trump has started a wave of incivility in washington, his supporters love it, brenna. >> they do. people want to feel like they are heard. feel like somebody is fighting for them. fighting for their values. pushing back against people who may not agree with them. i think there's a dangerous line. we have seen this with the tragic congressional baseball shooting last year. we saw it with gabby giffords a few years ago. some tragic things can happen from people on the end of both spectrums on the fringe s obviously. that is something we need to think about and supporters say it is wonderful to be heard, but civil ways to go about that. i think politicians should set an example. they should talk to each other civilly. they should talk to each other in the same room and not yell at each other.
2:10 am
like i said, politics has never been super civil, but a spectrum and we are edging toward one side. >> and in south carolina last night, the president criticized john mccain who is dying of brain cancer. accused of grandstanding. hit arnold schwarzenegger. stephen colbert called him a low-life and then jimmy fallon is a lost soul. now he is shifted those two issues he won on, immigration and trade. when it comes to immigration, he appears to like this fight as well. where are we headed? is there anything that could come out of the house or senate? >> last week, republicans were trying to find a compromise on a bill and trying to struggle to go narrow or broad. that is the issue for a while. what they should focus on and
2:11 am
what can pass and what can get support. not only from other republicans in congress, but also from the president. it is interesting because as long as we have been seeing this story line it has been the same thing. it is all focused on house republicans and how divergent their interests and needs and asks are and where they can marry that with president trump. president trump said late last week why are they trying? they should deal with it in the midterms. there is a powder keg with the images out last week with the children separated from families that is lighting a fire under congress to do something. constituents are demanding it. >> brenna williams live in d.c. thank you. see you in 20 minutes. it is primary day today in five states with votes in colorado, maryland, new york, oklahoma and utah. among the notable races, mitt romney is likely to win the seat along with mike kennedy. and in new york, michael grimm

2:13 am
he met last year with executives. now he is tweeting his surprise that harley would be the first to wave the white flag on trade. on wall street, harley stock fell 6% proving the trade battles have consequences for u.s. companies. the dow fell more than 300 points led by tech stocks. so far, tech had been immune to trade fears. now the white house plans to block chinese investment and tech. targeting xi jinping's made in china's 2025 plan. that is a national strategy to dominate the industry. steve mnuchin denied china was a target, but said he would hit all countries trying to steal our technology. then peter navarro came out and contradicted mnuchin.
2:14 am
>> there are no plans to impose investment restrictions on any countries that are interfering in any way with our country. this is not the plan. this idea that somehow there will be investment restrictions to the world. discount that. >> it is to china or not to china. he called the market drop an overreaction. we have been waiting for the two-part approach to china. we are waiting to hear more about that by the end of the week. >> not a good split screen for nau navarro when you see the dow drop 300 points. china and the trade issue. secretary of defense landing overnight in china on a critically important trip with the north korea issues and trade issues at play. we have will ripley live from

2:34 am
asked to leave a virginia restaurant friday night. >> i was asked to leave because i work for president trump. healthy debate on ideas and philosophy is important. the calls for harassment is unacceptable. we are allowed to disagree, but we should do so without the fear of harm. this goes for all people regardless of politics. >> the white house officials say president trump asked sanders to start her briefing with that statement. the restaurant owner's decision not to serve her igniting a less than civil debate including this from congresswoman maxine waters over the weekend. >> and if you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. and you push back on them and you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere. >> president trump adding to the
2:35 am
incivility calling waters as a low iq person and tweeting be careful what you wish for, max. the president saying this last night in south carolina. >> they are good at one thing. what is the term? resist. it is the party of maxine waters, do you believe her? no, no. this has become the party of maxine waters and nancy pelosi. >> maxine waters is trying to clarify her original remarks. >> i believe in peaceful, very peaceful protests. i have not called for the harm of anybody. this president has lied again when he is saying that i called for harm to anyone. >> waters dialled back after criticism from democrats. nancy pelosi tweeting trump's daily lack of civility is provoking responses that are
2:36 am
predictable, but unacceptable. and this from chuck schumer. >> no one should call for the harassment of political opponents. that's not right. that's not american. >> how did we get here? critics of the trump administration insist it starts at the top. >> i love the old days. you know what i used to do? they would carry stretchers. they are smiling and laughing. i'd like to punch him in the face. >> if you see somebody ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of him. seriously. n knock the hell. i promise you, i will pay for the legal fees. i promise. >> with all of the vitriol from the president, many democrats are concerned the emotional response could fuel him. social media confrontations
2:37 am
include several heckling of donald trump officials and it has opened a rift in anti-trump outrage is helping or hurting ahead of the midterms. >> let's bring in editor brenna williams. i think the incivility from the president is something par for the course, frankly. one of the reasons why he was elected. his supporters love he tells it like he sees it and uses the sharp language. when the resistance gets ugly, it is something that feeds a different narrative. listen to what marco rubio tweeted. trump haters do not realize how much they help with condescension of those who either voted for him or don't share their hatred of him. is this actually going help the president? >> actually, it is really
2:38 am
interesting because fueling the fire and fanning the flames kind of playing into the narrative that, you know, president trump had started to weave of people uncivil and people attacking trump supporters and trump supporters needing to become more coalescing more and backing each other more. it will start driving people further apart. now we have taken this uncivil discourse out of the rallies and out of the private spaces and out of the spaces where you are among like-minded people and taking it out against other people in public places so you might not be safe going into a restaurant. not physically safe, but not comfortable. i think sarah sanders should be able to regardless of who you support to go out in public and be safe and not get yelled at.
2:39 am
>> sanders had good point saying healthy debhate is welcome when she talked about getting kicked out of the restaurant. for ms. sanders, hours earlier, tweeted about the restaurant. saying it should focus on the filthy canopy and doors and it is dirty on the outside and dirty on the inside. you want a civil tone? he tweeted 14 times yesterday. not one was a plea for civility. does he want a civil tone? >> i don't think so necessarily. not given the things he has been tweeting and saying. you know, it gets people riled up and thinking about this instead of talking about immigration and talking about other issues and the budget deal. this drove the news cycle yesterday and into today. having to respond and counteract each other. we're not talking about the big
2:40 am
issues. we're talking about who is fighting who and what they're saying and what they're condoning and not condoning. how dirty a restaurant in wawrinka -- restaurant in virginia here and not talking about the issues. we have seen how rhetoric can turn nasty and physical with the congressional baseball practice and what happened to gabby giffords a few years ago. there is one thing about civil discourse and violence. we should never get anywhere close to that. politicians need to take responsibility because the things they say matter and constituents listen to the elected leaders. if president trump since the campaign, has been condoning punching that guy in the face, there is a fine line between rhetoric and action. >> what politics may think is performance art, honestly, you have people in videos reacting
2:41 am
badly in the real world. there is an incivility that comes from that. thank you, brenna. >> thank you. the president in south carolina last night. riling up the crowd on the cornerstone issue of immigration. the president telling supporters in south carolina he sees the national uproar over immigration as helpful to republicans. >> i have my own feeling. when i heard them talking about the children, first of all, they were using pictures taken in 2014 when barack obama was president. i wasn't president. and what i learned is one thing. hour facilities are cleaner, better kept and better run. that's the one thing i learned. okay? i saw that. but what we have is two extremes. i liked it. said this is fine for us. >> we love to come into the facili facilities.

2:48 am
i think it is interesting to see what changes in the conversation today and how people move it forward. that is what we want to press people on. you say this is what we should see. what are you doing to make that happen? >> yeah. with parenting, how do you get a civil tone at home? >> i am a perfect parent, dave. i'm not sure if you are aware of this. i'm sure my children would with attest to that. i never raise my voice or lose my cool. i never regretted a decision in the 11 1/2 years of parenting. >> you are needed in my house. it sounds like a plea for help for berman. >> there is the civility? >> unlike everyone in washington, i take ownership of lack of civility and i apologize for it. >> in all seriousness, my parenting plan. i tell my children it is not a democracy. in my house, i'm okay with
