1:00 am
>> the families did not walk away empty handed. the stores distributed vouchers for people who waited in line. "early start" continues right now with the latest from the president's visit to the uk. >> the president starts his first official trip to uk by slamming the prime minister. president trump says trade deals are in jeopardy because theresa may did not take his advice on brexit. tens of thousands are expected to protest the president's visit. sparks fly for ten hours as fbi agent peter strzok fends off accusations of bias and members of congress fend off each other. welcome to "early start." i'm michelle kosinski. >> i'm dave briggs. it is friday the 13th.
1:01 am
4:00 a.m. in the east. 9:00 a.m. in london. we are live with pictures of the president on marine one heading to the military academy. this trip made headlines and it is just beginning. first the pomp and now the politics for the president in the uk. expect a rough road ahead made bumpy by comments the president made to "the sun" newspaper. the interview went online as the dinner with theresa may ended. >> he said may ignored his advice on brexit strategy. he said his proposal to maintain close ties to the european union would jeopardize any future trade deals with the u.s. >> if they do a deal like that, we will be dealing with the europe european union instead of dealing with the uk. it will probably kill the deal.
1:02 am
if they do that, their trade deal with the u.s. will probably not be made. >> extraordinary criticism of the foreign leader of the trip to their own country. the latest example, the president is playing nice in person and getting tough in public. for the latest, let's bring in diplomatic editor nic robertson live in london for us. good morning, nic. >> reporter: good morning, dave. i'm shouting. i hope you can hear me. marine one is taking off here from the residence of the u.s. ambassador here in london. this is not what theresa may invited president trump here to the uk. she wanted to help forge that special relationship and explain to him why britain is a good business partner for the united states. it creates more than 1 million jobs in british companies in the united states at the moment. all of that will be lost. she potentially could pay a very
1:03 am
high political price for the shots he has fired at her. not only criticizing the handling of brexit making the british people poorer because they cannot do business in a substantial way with the united states in the future. he is also saying her former foreign secretary who quit this week, boris johnson, would be a good prime minister. what message is that? it seems she would not be a good prime minister, although we know from sarah sanders that this is not the message that president trump is sending. he believes theresa may is a good leader. however, in the current political climate in britain where theresa may has had two cabinet minuisters quit this week, is under huge pressure within her party about the way she is handling brexit. this kind of political pressure
1:04 am
that president trump seems to be applying to her here is really potentially going to have a consequential knock or effect for her. it will bring a fight with the mayor of london and he doesn't handle terrorism properly or crime in london properly. none of this welcome news. >> no, it is not. thank you, nic. president trump all over the uk. one place he is avoiding is central london. 50,000 protesters are expected to speak out against him there starting shortly before they do, the trump baby balloon is taking to the skies. for more, we turn to nick paton walsh. nick? >> reporter: extraordinary. they finally reached the bit of inflation of the end of the baby
1:05 am
blimp as it is known. you cannot see the mobile phone, his favorite weapon of war, twitter. i will point out the irony of all this. he talked about it in the interview. he is unwelcome. the london mayor to allow the balloon to fly for an hour above parliament is clearly caused donald trump to be vocal dismissing the record he says on terrorism and immigration. although the central government sets those policies. this will be up for an hour and a half. it is the closest likeness donald trump will get to parliament at all. the scene of him kept away from the institutions of royal governments or government itself here. a crowd gathering around here. one pro-trump supporter in a trump 2020 t-shirt. others holding up cards against trump and the trump babysitter
1:06 am
behind the blimp. you see it is just released. we will stay with this as they release it. i have to say it is staggering that this was permitted. it is clearly the likeness of trump as a baby in a nappy, a diaper. one organizer said clearly they believe the interview given in "the sun" today is an example of how trump is infantile. this is just the beginning of the day of protests that are going to start in central london and oxford circus and move down toward parliament square and possibly 70,000 people. that is the extraordinary sight you have here because you normally expect a lockdown to enable a sitting u.s. president to visit parliament. instead a lockdown with the protests. instead, we have the
1:07 am
extraordinary inflatable donald trump likeness hanging over the western democracy. extraordinary sight. back to you. >> it will be a long day. i don't know what is weirder, nick. seeing that balloon inflate behind you or seeing you instead of being live from syria, now live in front of a big baby balloon. >> reporter: i think the interview with "the sun" was the wei weirdest. >> joining us from london is international editor dan stew t stewart. good morning. >> thanks for having me. >> it is like the president wanted to make headlines on this trip wherever he went. he is certainly making them. >> he has on every single newspaper this morning. they lead with the interview with "the sun." he makes unprecedented entry into domestic politics. this is something world leaders
1:08 am
don't do. they don't come to other countries and insert themselves in the biggest political story of the day. that is what he has done within hours of sitting down or touching down in london. it is quite incredible. >> so that "sun" interview. the president slams theresa may's brexit strategy. he challenges someone who can challenge her as boris johnson. this could threaten a u.s. and uk trade deal. what is the impact on all of this with our closest ally? >> it is tricky to say. i think the people who are pleased about this are the hard liners in theresa may's cabinet. she had massive divisions there. this will make it worse. this empowers people like boris johnson perhaps. i think a trump endorsement will enjoy that, but trump is not a popular figure in the uk. i'm not sure that will do great
1:09 am
things for his own political future. i think also boris johnson's resignation this week was greeted poorly. i think people felt he sort of stepped away from a challenge if you like. that also probably won't help his political future right now. i think in general this is exactly what may, in particular, doesn't need at this moment in time. >> i'm hearing from diplomats there that they almost expect this to be something similar with nato and angela merkel. criticizing germany in public when cameras are on, but when behind closed doors, he is talking up the relationship. now he has to sit down for meetings and lunch with theresa may. is there an expectation that is likely to be all friendliness and smiles and things mended after that interview? >> look, the special relationship is very, very
1:10 am
important to the uk. for years it is the way the uk has propped up the presence on the world stage if you like. i don't think they want to do anything to threaten that. i think may and trump have only ten minutes together in the room before the other diplomats join them. i don't expect this to be a big confrontation like you see in the film "love actually" where the prime minister played by hugh grant confronts the u.s. president. i don't think this is quite like and that. you will see a display when they come out. >> there are similarities. >> there are. >> well. >> kudos to you for the "love actually" reference. one thing we know the president is looking for is he went abroad to pick a fight. he is looking forward to tea with the queen. how do you expect that to go? >> i mean, the queen has done this a lot of times. i think she met with every
1:11 am
single president since eisenhower, perhaps. she knows how to cope with people. she is the master of small talk. she will probably want to steer clear of politics. royal family is very, very careful of not being seen to address politics. i'm should she will ask him questions about his family and businesses and that sort of thing. i think we are unlikely to see diplomatic spats breakout between the queen and donald trump. >> we are seeing these protests around london. you mentioned that the president is not extraordinarily popular there. what are the people there protesting? what angers them so about president trump's presence in the uk and his policies? >> i think it is the same sort of lines you saw shortly after he was elected. people taking issue with his perceived attitude toward women and perceived attitude to immigrants and muslims in particular. on my way to the studio this
1:12 am
morning, i saw lots of far left newspapers handed out. i think that is the tone you will see. they promised it to be a carnival atmosphere. you will likely see a lot of colorful signs and that sort of thing. i don't think it will be passionately bitter. when george w. bush came here in 2003 and there were large protests, those were very infused by the war. this is going to cover a wide variety of different issues trump is seen to stand for. >> i'm hearing there were noisy protests outside where the president was staying last night. probably not as large as we could see today. thanks so much. >> not at all. thank you very much. >> dan stewart. thank you. ahead, contentious day ahead as embattled fbi agent peter strzok testifies before congress. >> i don't appreciate what was originally said being changed. >> i don't give a damn, agent
1:13 am
strzok. >> that is one of the more tame parts of the very contentious day on capitol hill. . anotti-wrim in no hurry to make anything happen. neutrogena® rapid wrinkle repair works in just one week. with the fastest retinol formula to visibly reduce wrinkles. neutrogena®.

okay. if you missed peter strzok's testimony on capitol hill, you missed a spectacle. members of the house judiciary and oversight committees ripping into him and each other for about ten hours. republicans have been using strzok's text messages with fbi lawyer lisa page to state bias over trump in the bureau. strzok was having none of it. >> at no time did those personal beliefs ever enter into the rem -- realm of any decision i took, and the suggestion that i would somehow cast aside all of these procedures, all of these
1:18 am
safeguards and somehow be able to do this is astounding to me. it simply couldn't happen. >> agent strzok went on to tell lawmakers, a credible source told of a russian offer to help the campaign. strzok said he could have leaked the information to hurt the campaign, but never considered it. there were plenty of low moments in the hearing when congress member gommert brought up this issue with lisa page. >> how many times did you look so innocent in your wife's eye and lied to her? >> mr. chairman -- >> mr. chairman, mr. chairman, please. >> you know, mr. chairman, there is intolerable harassment of the witness. >> you need your medication. >> ten hours of this. remember, ten hours. so lisa page will meet with members of congress behind closed doors this afternoon.
1:19 am
she defied a congressional subpoena to testify on wednesday. "the new york times" reports that the white house is overriding expansion of intelligence over a confidential source used during the campaign. that includes the head of the fbi which has expressed concern about expanding as access fearing for safety of the sources. it is not clear if the president personally authorized the change. a devastating 2017 hurricane season has fema admitting the response capabilities were stretched at every level. this season included hurricanes harvey in the gulf and amaria i puerto rico. the report is unprecedented. fema admits it unestimated the devastation -- under estimated the devastation in puerto rico.
1:20 am
that's more than hurricanes katrina, rita, wilma and sandy combined. ahead, the president says he got a very nice note from kim jong-un. >> who hasn't? >> not me. have you? >> tons. >> doesn't mean anything if pyongyang doesn't show up to a critical meeting. we are live in seoul with the latest. this is not a bed.

1:25 am
president your excellency multiple times. describes the summit last month a start of a meaningful journey. absent from the note is a reference to denuclearization. now we have cnn's andrew stevens live in seoul. it is hard to know if we are progressing with this or going backwa backwards. >> reporter: absolutely. if you look at what's happening on the ground, it does certainly look like it is not going forward. let's put it like that, michelle. let's say that is a modest view as well. interestingly, donald trump is saying great progress is being made in the denuclearization talks. on the ground, it looks to be a different story. there was supposed to be a meeting yesterday between the u.s. and the north koreans to discuss the remains of u.s.
1:26 am
service members killed in the korean war brought back to the u.s. this was one of the key agreements that kim and trump did sign off on when they met on june 12th. that was supposed to be a meeting to get the momentum going on getting the remains home. that meeting did not take place because the north koreans did not take place. the u.s. was informed north korea wanted a meeting on sunday. mike pompeo looked like the meeting would happen on july 12th. obviously that did not happen. it is another thorn in the side of the negotiations that seem to be going nowhere at the moment. we got little out of pyongyang meeting which mike pompeo met the number two in north korea, including not getting a meeting with number one. kim jong-un himself. apparently touring a potato farm when mike pompeo was in
1:27 am
pyongyang. very difficult to see any progress whatsoever at this stage. michelle. >> one day you get stood up. the next day you get a date. thank you, andrew. ahead, the president starts his trip to the uk with less than kind words for theresa may. their meeting today and his visit with the queen and 50,000 protesters be expected on the streets. these are live pictures from london. we'll have the latest for you next on "early start."
1:28 am
1:29 am
1:30 am
1:31 am
the president starts his first official trip to uk by slamming the prime minister. president trump says trade deals are in jeopardy because theresa may did not take his advice on brexit. also tens of thousands are expected to protest the president's visit along with the trump baby. how many times did you look so innocent into your wife's eye and three her about lisa page? >> mr. chairman, this is outrageous. >> sparks like that flew for ten hours as peter strzok fends off accusations of bias and members of congress fend off each other.
1:32 am
welcome back to "early start." i'm michelle kosinski. >> the 25 guys competing for a rose on "bachelorette" called. i'm dave briggs. a lot of news to get to. we start in the uk. president trump all over the united kingdom. one place he is avoiding is central london this morning. some 50,000 protesters are expected there. before they do, this infamous trump baby is taking to the skies. for more, we turn to nick paton walsh live in london. good morning. >> reporter: extraordinary. they finally reached the bit of inflation of the end of the baby blimp as it is known. it is a baby in a napp yery hol a mobile phone. this is the closest likeness
1:33 am
trump will get to parliament. addly enough, to add to the -- oddly enough, to add to the scene, this is where president trump should spend most of his time. he is avoiding. a cage with a man dressed as gorilla was escorted off because under authority laws, you have to have permission to protest. this blimp has permission to be up in the skies for another two hours. that was given by the london mayor. he has been an opponent to donald trump answering the criticism that donald trump has had. in the interview with "the sun" that donald trump gave, he expressed how he felt, quote, unwelcome in london. partly because of this and he also reserved criticism for the london mayor kahn and how his policies allowed crime and
1:34 am
immigration to be feeding each other in london. obviously the central government controls those things and not the mayor of london. that sentiment grows in the city of london and building in the hours ahead. up in oxford circus, protesters will march to the square. i have to say this was unleashed and we saw two aircraft, osprey aircraft, they flew over parliament as this was unleashed. that is the distance donald trump had to keep from central london here. they use the strange choice because of the noise and glance they give to people. one said it looked like something out of "star wars." this is the feeling of british people on the ground and the u.s. president who would expect to spend time in central london at parliament and buckingham palace. instead, he was in blenin palace
1:35 am
and windsor castle later on. dave. >> nick paton walsh. usually in war zones around the world, but today in a different atmosphere. >> the balloon doesn't fly very high. it is not exactly -- >> it is quite the view we have of the trump baby. let's move on. from the protests to the politics for president trump today in the uk. lots going on. expect a rough road ahead made bumpier by the comments he made to "the sun" newspaper. this happened as his dinner with theresa may was ending. >> he said president may ignored his advice on brexit. he said the european union would jeopardize any future trade deal with the united states.
1:36 am
>> if they do a deal like that, we'll be dealing with the european union, instead of dealing with the uk. so it will probably kill the deal. if they do that, their trade deal with the u.s. will probably not be made. >> it was extraordinary. criticism of a foreign leader and already weakened prime minister. the u.s. closest ally on a trip to her own country. the president playing nice in person, but tough in public. let's bring in nic robertson for the latest, live for us in london. i'm hearing from sources, nic, people expect to hear the news that is expected to dominate that interview. >> reporter: sure. what british officials feared is president trump coming and getting upset by the protests and the plan was to keep him away and the time he was going to spend with the prime minister
1:37 am
was time that they hoped they could really sort of help explain to president trump why the relationship between the two countries is so good. britain, they say, creates 1 million jobs in the united states. those were the sort of issues they wanted to talk about today. we could not be a million miles away from that. the estimate that british officials had of the problem was president trump seeing the protests. clearly they had no idea what he had in mind when he gave this interview to "the sun" newspaper which has a wide viewership here and populism in the country. the shots he has taken at theresa may could not come at a more damaging time. she has been criticized from her own party from the position on brexit. she lost two key important ministers over brexit this week. so president trump weighing in and saying this is not going to help britain get trade deals
1:38 am
with the united states which has been a key part of her sell to the british public. brexit would be okay and whatever we lose in business deal was the european union would make up with the united states. this is additionally damaging. he turns the knife, if you will, says boris johnson, who quit this week, would be a good prime minister. president trump is going to go in and sit down with theresa may in a couple of hours. i cannot begin to imagine how that conversation will go and who will say the first word. i can't imagine that theresa may ever thought that the man she tried to position herself politically close to would do this to her at this time. >> that press conference later today is going to be interesting. thanks, nic. interesting indeed. joining us from london is time magazine international editor dan stewart.
1:39 am
in the interview with "the sun" the president blows up theresa may's brexit strategy and someone who could challenge theresa may and her leadership. despite that, chris ruddy, a close friend to the president, told chris cuomo it was a love fest. listen. >> it was a great night. i would describe it as a love fest between the president of the united states and the british prime minister in terms of their two countries. this president like the inter-personal connection with people. he is a very people person. >> so given everything the president told "the sun" how does theresa may handle this? >> i think that is a very good question. she will meet with trump over lunch today. she has ten minutes one-on-one with him. perhaps she will raise this in that meeting. i think trump has been quite hard on brexit for a long time now.
1:40 am
he said these are sorts of things before he came to the u.s. you know, it is in keeping with his line of brexit. so i think it will be interesting to see what happens as you say in the press conference. i think what we are going to see as the guests last night said a rebinding of the ties of the special relationship. that is the prism which they will try to reflect this rather than intricacy of the domestic policies. >> this is not a universal system in the uk. theresa may has to bring her entire party and cabinet with her. really difficult to get all of those views together. especially over something as contentious as brexit. is there a sense that the president understands this was the deal that could be gotten? >> who is to say what the president understands or not. i know "the huffington post"
1:41 am
reports that trump likes to say every time he calls theresa may is have you brexited yet? it is a huge under taking. she has to have consensus within her cabinet and she has to have her government behind her and parliament behind her. she has to pack make agreement the other 27 members of the european union. this is not a matter as simple as saying we're done with this. good-bye. to the extent that trump understands that, who can say? his point is for making a swift decisive decisions and perhaps he ses that as a similar thing -- perhaps he sees that as a similar thing with nafta ornate owe. >> we are seeing -- or nato. >> we are seeing the trump baby balloon headed in the skies. what is it the people of london
1:42 am
are protesting regarding the trump policies or presence in london? >> i think this goes back to a lot of his perceived views on race and on women. it is the same sort of left wing view of his position on immigration. particularly toward muslims. as i was on my way here today, i saw people selling left-wing newspapers along the parade route. i think that is the type of people you will see. we have been promised a carnival. i think it will be colorful alongside the balloon which is a drag queen protest joining the main protest. also something called trumpets for trump. people playing brass instruments at discordant level. it should be colorful and perhaps not bitter. >> sunny summer day. brits getting creative. not unlike the baby brexit
1:43 am
balloon. >> no diapers on this fellow. dan stewart from "time" magazine. thank you. it was a very contentious day as embattled fbi agent peter strzok testified before congress. >> i don't appreciate what was originally said being changed. >> i don't give a damn, agent strzok. >> that was one of the more tame parts of the day. coming up. we do whatever it takes to fight cancer.

well, if you missed peter strzok's testimony on capitol hill, you missed the spectacle. even by congressional standards. members of the house judiciary and oversight committees ripping into the fbi agent and each other for about ten heated hours. republicans had been using his text messages with former fbi lawyer lisa page to promote claims of anti-trump bias at the bureau. but strzok was having none of it. >> at no time in any of these texts did those personal beliefs ever enter into the realm of any action i took, and the suggestion that i in some dark chamber somewhere in the fbi would somehow cast aside all of these procedures, all of these safeguards, and somehow be able to do this is astounding to me. it simply couldn't happen.
1:49 am
>> agent strzok went on to tell lawmakers a sensitive and credible source told the fbi about a russian offer to help a member of the trump campaign. strzok said he could have leaked the information to hurt the trump campaign but he never considered it. there were plenty of low moments in the hearing when congressman gohmert brought up strzok's affair with lisa page. >> i can't help but wonder when i see you looking there with a little smirk how many times did you look so innocent into your wife's eye and lie to her about lisa -- >> mr. chairman, this is outrageous! >> the credibility of a witness -- >> shame on you -- >> mr. chairman, please! >> mr. chairman, this is intolerable harassment of the witness. >> what's wrong with that, you need your medication! >> it was a race to the bottom. lisa page will meet with members of congress behind closed doors this afternoon. she defied a congressional subpoena to testify on

there on no notable signs of progress on the negotiations with north korea, but the president is still releasing what he calls a very nice note from leader kim jong-un. in the letter, he calls the president your excellency multiple times. describes the summit last month a start of a meaningful journey. absent from the note is a reference to denuclearization. cnn's andrew stevens is back with us from seoul with more on this issue. >> reporter: no talk about denuclearization in the letter to president trump from kim jong-un.
1:57 am
the meeting on july 12th tied in to the mike pompeo meeting. we know the talks did not go well at all. mike pompeo did not meet kim jong-un. in fact, kim jong-un was traveling in the northeast of the country looking at potato farms and factories. since then, the optics look bad. north koreans were a no-show at a meeting which was supposed to take place yesterday at the demilitarized zone with the americans about the return of the remains of u.s. service members who died in the korean war. this is politically important. it is delicate. donald trump has said that some of the remains have already been brought home from north korea. that is not true. there was a signing between trump and kim jong-un about expediting the return of those remains which is not happening at the moment. that meeting which is supposed to take place yesterday has now been rescheduled for sunday
1:58 am
afternoon. on top of all this, we have the u.s. pushing at the united nations security council with new evidence that shows north korea is sanctions busting on the import of petroleum products. saying the north koreans have gone way beyondlocated target f0 barrels. and asking for russia and china to stop supplying north korea. there are major issues at play here. >> at least that meeting is back on. as you said, it is not going to be about denuclearization. thanks, andrew. 4:58. a check on cnn money. wall street ignoring trade fears for now. u.s. stocks closed higher yesterday thanks to a rally if tech stocks. global stocks are higher. investors are waiting on corporate earnings in the u.s.
