[ chants ] . i wanted to show support for the folks here today. i can only imagine what it could be like to have my daughter, my breast-feeding child, be ripped away like some of these other moms' babies have been. >> i think we can do a real immigration bill.

we have to have security. >> i have to look after my people, as well. you understand. >> i agree. i agree. >> it amazes me since he's talked to me well over 20 times that he did not recognize that a stutter i stuttering genre. >> this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. >> good morning to you. it may be one of the most important decisions of the trump presidency. this is the second supreme court pick in less than two years. this time with the potential to alter the balance of the court for a generation. >> this weekend president trump could be joined at his new jersey golf club by one or two potential supreme court candidates. the president will announce his choice for anthony kennedy's replacement in a little more than a week. on the short list, five people with at least one woman. for a closer look at the candidates and what the white house calls a partial worki ini weekend, here's white house

correspondent boris sanchez. >> reporter: president trump making headlines on a number of topics during a short gavel with reporters on his way to new jersey for the weekend. notably talking about a possible replace for justice anthony kennedy who announced that he's retiring from the supreme court. the president saying he's whittled down a list of 25 names to a possible five candidates, two of them including women. the president also making news saying he plans to interview one or two of the possible candidates over the weekend here in bedminster. among the topics of conversation -- their stance on abortion will not be discussed. president trump saying that he will not ask these possible candidates their stance on roe versus wade, a controversial issue. one that justice anthony kennedy was previously known for creating controversy over. here's more from president trump on what he plans to talk to candidates about. >> are you looking for somebody who would overturn roe v. wade? >> well, you know, it's a great
3:03 am
group of intellectual talent. we eerd really -- they are gene conservative. i'm not going to ask that question, by the way. that's not a question i'll be asking. it is a group of highly talented, brilliant, mostly conservative judges. >> reporter: president trump saying he does not plan to ask these possible candidates about their stance on lgbt issues. the president also made news on other fronts including suggesting that he plans to talk to vladimir putin about electin meddling, telling tlrpts shou shoushould -- telling reporters there should not be election meddling anywhere in else world. there has been discussion even in his own party that president trump has been weak over confronting vladimir putin over this. in previous weeks, the president seeming to accept putin's version of events and denials saying that russia had nothing to do with the meddling in the 2016 election. on friday, the president tweeted
3:04 am
that assertion before pivoting to an attack on democrats, the fbi, and his own department of justice. he commented on reports that john kelly was planning to leave the white house as early as the end of summer. the president suggesting he did not know anything about the reports and that they were fake news. however, sources told cnn previously that president trump has been talking to allies and advisers, polling them on possible replacements over the course of the last few months. we know from sources that this, in fact, has been something on the president's radar for some time. boris sanchez, cnn, traveling with the president near bedminster, new jersey. >> all right. thank you very much. joining me to talk about this, daniel litt man, reporter and co-author of "the political playbook," and joey jackson legal analyst and criminal defense attorney. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> daniel, let's start with you. the president was sure in
3:05 am
discussing his short list to highlight that he has two women on the list and under consideration. i mean, why would the president add that? to potentially lower the votes of two female republican senators who are questions now, lisa murkowski, susan collins? >> i definitely think that's a factor. a lot of democrats and progressives are going to label any nominee of the president's anti-woman and say that the end of roe v. wade is close. and so that they would unsettle that case. so if the president picks a woman, conservatives believe that it might be less likely that the democratic argument would gain traction because they would ask how could a woman be anti-woman. and so that's kind of the thinking that goes behind the white house take on whether to pick a woman. >> joey, to you, the president will not ask his potential
3:06 am
nominees the short list about their views on roe v. wade. i mean, he won't have to, right? the list from which he's picking is a group of conservative judges, already gotten the thumbs up from several conservative january lifts, including -- analysts, including the federalist society weighing in. there's no scenario under which this president nominates a judge or potential judge on its bona fides. >> i don't have to ask a question that's true and near and dear to a conservative's philosophy or ideology. while you may not ask the specific question, the fact that you have produced a list, produced the list during the election, amended the list to include other members, we should note when the list was amended it included neil gorsuch, he's now on the supreme court. i don't know that you have to have that specific discussion to be comfortable and clear what the person who you're interviewing -- to know that that's where they stand and
3:07 am
that's their position. no, to your point, you know, a fate arit accompli in that rega. >> one of the judges under consideration is bret cavanaugh. he wrote this to the "minnesota law review" in 2009. listen and see if you can pick out why it's important -- "congress might consider a law exempting a president while in office from criminal prosecution and investigation including from questioning by criminal prosecutors or defense counsel. criminal investigations targeted at or revolving around a president are inevitably politicized by both their supporters and critics." a supreme court soon may have to answer the question about a subpoena of a u.s. president. this sounds like a man after the president's own heart. this was written in 2009. >> i think that cavanaugh, judge cavanaugh, who sits on the circuit court, his interview has already been concluded. the interview would have been concluded as we look at the credentials there was when he
3:08 am
wrote that law review article for the "minnesota law review." clearly today and, you know, look, you can say it's foreshadowing there, this person is talking about exempting a president from criminal prosecution. it's not a total exemption, to be clear. in the article he talks about deferring it, which i do not agree with. i think you need an opportunity if a president has run afoul of the law to hold the president accountable then, not to wait four years, eight years to to do it -- and to do it. that's a story for another day. someone who has that ideology and tipped their hand with regard to supporting such a law which constitutionality, i should say, would be very much in question because it would then look at holding a president above the law, i think that he would be a great choice as it relates to president trump himself thinking, look, this is the kind of guy that i want. we should note that he's only 53 years old. that would cement him on the court for some time to come.
3:09 am
>> daniel, we've talked about the republicans who are in question for this nomination. there are several democrats who could support the nominee like they support neil gorsuch last year. we've got joe donnelly in indiana, heidi heitkamp in north dakota, joe mnuchin in west virginia. to vote in late october potentially against the president's nominee would seal their respective defeats, would it not? they're the trump state democrats. they're in states that president trump won by significant margins in 2016. >> that's why trump is meeting with some of these democrats, to try to get them on his side. i think a lot of the democrats will be under pressure from their own caucus not to abandon the democratic party on this. the democratic senators have a united front. we shouldn't underestimate the
3:10 am
fact that there is likely a blue wave coming. the democrats could be very alone in their own party if they support a nominee who turns out to be conservative down the line. a lot of people are expecting nole door sistine chapel to be -- neil gorsuch to be a little bit more moderate. yet, in his first year or so on the court, he's been really tough on issues, and he's even gotten some of his own colleagues on the court concerned that he is bucking the traditions of the court that, you know, new members, junior justices, should be a little more cautious in how they present themselves. >> yeah. we'll see what is stronger here at that party -- pressure to keep a unified democratic front, to keep mnuchin and donnelly and heitkamp in the fold, or if for their own re-elections they have to side with the president. >> remember, all politics is local. >> yes, it is. >> former speaker, tip o'neill. the democratic party might want
3:11 am
to stay together and say vote the way i say you do, but if you don't get re-elected, what's the point? >> that's right. thank you. word that another u.s. ambassador just quit the state department. reportedly over president trump's policies and comments about european allies. the ambassador to estonia announced his resignation yesterday. the career diplomat is the third ambassador in the last year to exit the state department early. melville's resignation comes amid growing tensions between europe and the trump administration ahead of next month's nato summit. melville's departure only adds to the current list of vacancies in the state department. right now there are 60 open ambassadorships. the president has nominated people for 19 of the spots. still, 60 are open. we're getting new images of the deadly scene in annapolis where a man shot and killed five people who worked for the "capital gazette." video that was shot just moments after -- police race today to evacuate workers from the

3:13 am
friend. he was that for a lot of people. we would say you don't need a million friends, you just need really good ones. he was always there for people. a confidante when folks needed it. and someone ready with the wry little joke at just the right time. >> you see here hundreds turned out for a massive candlelight vigil honoring the shooting victims. and the saturday edition of the "capital" has just been published. the resign -- "suspect swore "oath" to kill," and huge crowds rally in annapolis. we'll talk more about that later this morning. meanwhile, a comedian prank call to the white house. he ends up talking to the president. and that's not even the craziest part of the story. >> yeah. we'll talk about that. plus, she was suspended for dancing during medical procedures. now this woman will not be allowed to work or even call herself a doctor for quite some

3:20 am
"n." he was a frequent guest on howard stern and talked to the president more than 20 years, even had lunch with president trump and melania trump more than five or six years ago. he said he hadn't spoken in years but was shocked when the president did not recognize that it was his voice on the call. a guy with a clear long island accent and not the senator from new jersey. take a listen. >> he did not recognize that a stuttering john, a guy who he's listened to on the "stern" show for years -- i have the worst long island accents knotiocent . how he cannot know that is not a real senator is beyond me. it is -- it's unbelievable. >> reporter: he told me the roughly four-minute phone call was relatively easy to set up. he called the white house switchboard, a number he got from google, took on a fake english accent, and pretended to be the senator's assistant. the next thing he knew, jared kushner was on the phone asking him what topic he'd like to
3:21 am
discuss with the president. >> trump was like, "bob, i want to congratulate you." i didn't know that senator menendez was in any legal problems. and really, if they would have just screened me and asked me what party affiliation senator menendez had or what state he represented, i would have been -- i would have been stumped. i had no -- i had no idea anything about senator menendez. >> reporter: on friday, the real senator menendez put out a statement saying, in part, "i welcome any opportunity to have a real conversation with the president on how to uphold the american values that have guided our family-based immigration policy for the past century." behind the scenes at the white house, the people are saying that the president wants to be accessible to members of congress and, unfortunately, that means mistakes like this can happen. john melendez did provide cnn with the phone numbers he
3:22 am
called, and cnn confirmed they are numbers from the white house switchboard and air force one. sara ganum, cnn, new york. >> thank you. one democratic lawmaker is raising concerns about how easy it was for someone to speak to the president. rep ever jerry connolly is worried about what could happen if others are successful. >> the find of disruptions that that could lead to is -- is a very chilling thing to contemplate. >> the white house admits patching the call through was a mistake but has not responded to the representative's comments there. still to come, cases of alleged migrant child abuse at the border. one guatemala teen says that he was mistreated while detained and saw many other cases of physical abuse, too. we spoke with him. >> translator: they would tie them to a chair. they would bind their anxielse. they would bind -- ankles. they would bind their wrists,

replacement for chief of staff john kelly. sources say the president has been privately polling aides and advisers about possible replacements for months now. several people considered to be on a list to replace him, including office of management and budget director milk mulvaney, and the vice president mike pence's top pick, nick ayers. they spoke about the possible departure on air force one. >> a wonderful man. john kelly, four star, wonderful man. and don't forget, this is a big change for him. you know, this isn't that easy a change for him. a very good. >> how long do you think he'll stick around? >> i can't say that. we have a very good relationship and achieved a lot together. i like john a lot. i like him and respect him. >> now the "washington post" is reporting that the pentagon's looking into how much it would cost to scale back or transfer u.s. troops in germany. a pentagon spokesman tells cnn,
3:40 am
quote, the pentagon regularly reviews forced posture and performs a cost benefit analysis, this is nothing new. germany has hosted the largest u.s. force presence in europe. we should point out, we remain deeply rooted in the common values and strong relationships between our countries. we remain fully committed to our nato allies and alliance. this ahead of growing tensions before the summit. general mark hurtling has a lot of thoughts on this. thank you very much for being with us. how plausible do you think it is that the president could reposition u.s. forces? and if he does, what's the consequence of that? >> it's plausible that he can do anything, but he is asking the pentagon to do what they normally do. as the pentagon said, a forced posture review is normal. there have been several over the last few decades in europe. i was part of the last one where they went from, first of all, in
3:41 am
the 1990s when the wall came down,there were 250,000 soldiers in europe post-world war ii as part of the nato alliance. that went down to 90,000 in the late 1990's and was further reduced between the years 2002 and 2011 to 30,000. that's about right. there is constant force structure review to see if what's called the troop-to-task ratio is correct given the mission set that people have, the military has in the conte -- continent, the engagement criteria and all that. having a review is important. what's interesting is how this has come at the same time when the president has questioned the value of nato, has insulted our nato partners, the 29 countries that are parts of nato. he has said multiple times he doesn't think that it's a good organization and, in my view, it is a very good organization. it's kept peace on the continent for the last century.
3:42 am
so all of those things are disconcerning to our allies, and they're concerned. they're very concerned, especially with the president going not only to the nato summit in the next few weeks, but then after that, going to talk with president putin of russia. >> does this play into putin's hand in any way? >> it most certainly does. mr. putin has been trying to get out from underneath the sanctions that have been in place for the last several years. he has threatened many european nations, and i'll include in those poland, the baltics, he has interfered not only in european elections but there's -- actually allegations that he's murdered people in other countries like the uk. and the president hasn't seemed to be all that forthright about what he's going to do. when he says something like i'm going to talk to mr. putin about some things, these are some major issues that the europeans see extremely threatening, as well as our election concerns which recently cyber experts
3:43 am
said continue to be ongoing and could affect significantly the 2018 election. yes, all of these things are very concerning. >> yeah. in fact, director of national intel, dan coates, told the senate in february propaganda, social media, false person as are still a threat from russia. with all of that said, what is at stake for the president, for the u.s., if the president does not assert himself with putin on this subject? >> well, the alliance could certainly be fractured. i think it already is to a degree based on my conversation with military and government officials in many european countries. there are concerns that russia might continue to be extremelyectionpansionist. they have invaded a couple of countries. they are still active in terms of attacking in eastern ukraine, not just crimea, but in the area of eastern ukraine. they are the only country that is actually -- russia is the only country that has actually taken over, attempted to attack
3:44 am
into other foreign sovereign nations since world war ii. all of those things could be influenced. certainly the economic exchange between europe and the united states could be effective. that's being questioned by the president, and i think our european partners are concerned about a post-cold war ii methodology is crumbling before their eyes. it becomes an existential threat not just for the united states with regard to our elections but even the existence of many countries that have come out from under the supervision of russia, the occupation of russia, to include many of the former eastern bloc countries. they see an external threat again if russia is allowed to continue to do the things they have done over the last several years. >> all right. quickly, let's listen to what the president says he does plan to discuss. >> we're going to talk about
