tv   Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs  CNN  October 15, 2018 2:00am-2:59am PDT

2:00 am
live, their relationship status, religion and their search history. facebook says the fbi is actively investigating the breach. this is just the latest data privacy scandal for facebook. in march it revealed it exposed 80 million users to a third party hack. do you think consumers have fatigue or do you think they're angry? dave has fatigue. >> fatigue. it's sad and unfortunate. "early start" continues right now with the latest on the disappearance of the saudi journalist. we're going to get to the bottom of it. and there will be severe punishment. president trump under pressure to take action after the suspected murder of the journalist. and the president and first lady head to florida today after dozens are still missing. sears just filed for bankruptcy and announced the closing of dozens more stores.
2:01 am
a dramatic fall for what used to be america's largest retailer. and breaking news out of kensington palace. prince harry and meghan markle are expecting a baby. we see them friday at princess eugenie's wedding. a coat, a bump. >> let the obsession begin. 5:00 a.m., monday october 15. good morning, everybody. president trump and the saudis trading threats over the weekend over the disappearance of journalist jamal khashoggi. the president telling "60 minutes" the saudis face severe punishment if they killed khashoggi during his visit to a saudi consulate in turkey. and an op-ed was published saying that the u.s. faces an economic bloodbath if it imposes sanctions on saudi arabia. for the latest let's bring in international diplomatic editor nic robertson at the very door where khashoggi was last seen entering that op-ed would that come without the approval of the royals? >> reporter: dave, it's hard to
2:02 am
imagine that it would. i mean, this -- the person that wrote it was a general manager of this essentially state arm of the media there in saudi arabia. it wouldn't have happened without the say so. at least that's sort of the understanding that this is the thing you want us to write. but it's in keeping with what we heard from the state news agency which said in slightly toned down language if there were any sanctions put on saudi arabia then saudi arabia would double down and be just twice as strong. so that was very much perceived in many places as a threat of what president trump had said. so it wasn't too much of a surprise but a little later we heard the saudi embassy rolling back the rhetoric saying that actually the kingdom was grateful for countries like the united states for waiting to see what comes out of the investigation. there does seem to be, you know, an inconsistency coming out of riyadh at the moment as they try
2:03 am
to figure out the next move forward. they are supported by the allies in the region, the king did call yesterday to president erdogan here in turkey. but the outcome of that phone call that we have been briefed on at least that they have agreed to form a working group doesn't change anything on the ground here at the moment. there was an agreement between the saudis and turkish officials last week to form a working group on how to get turkish investigators into the consulate. days before that, the saudis had even said turkish investigators could go into the consulate. there's a standoff on this issue right now and it's not clear, you know, quite which direction the diplomacy going to go in coming from riyadh. but at the moment, with the strongest language we have from the turkish officials the foreign minister saying that the turkish investigators, the chief prosecutor and the team of experts must -- must -- get inside that consulate building and that's no indication we're getting anywhere close to that at the moment. >> nic robertson has written
2:04 am
extensively on this. we recommend you read it on twitter. thank you. all right, president trump avoiding a firm stand on saudi arabia's role in the disappearance of jamal khashoggi. in an interview with "60 minutes," nobody knows if crown prince salman ordered the murder. >> it's being investigated. it is being looked at very, very strongly and we would be very upset and angry if that were the case. as of this moment, they deny it and deny it vehemently. could it be them, yes. >> cnn's boris sanchez has more. >> reporter: president trump has not explicitly pointed the finger at saudi arabia over the disappearance of "washington post" columnist jamal khashoggi, but instead saying that the white house will get to the bottom of the disappearance of that journalist. the president has chafed at a bipartisan group of senators who have suggested that congress should intervene and get involved. potentially by blocking $100 billion arms deal that president trump secured with
2:05 am
saudi arabia shortly after taking office. the president suggesting that it would likely hurt the american economy and jobs more than it would hurt saudi arabia or send a message to them. the president spoke with "60 minutes" on sunday night suggesting that if the white house found that saudi arabia was responsible, there would be a steep price to pay. listen to this. >> there's a lot at stake, and maybe especially so because this man was a reporter. there's something -- you'll be surprised to hear me say that but there's something really terrible and disgusting about that if that were the case. we have to see. we'll get to the bottom of it. there will be severe punishment. >> reporter: now the hesitation from president trump to really condemn the saudi arabians could be seen as an indication of how much this administration has staked on saudi arabia and the future of the middle east. we know that this administration believes very strongly that crown prince mohammed bin salman is an intricate part of the
2:06 am
future of the middle east not only with countering iranian aggression, but also any potential peace plan moving forward. dave and christine? >> boris, thanks. talk of sanctions hit saudi arabia's stock market. riyadh's main index fell 7% sunday, wiping out billions of dollars of market value in the top companies. stocks have dropped 9% since khashoggi disappeared october 2. for more than two years saudi arabia has been working to modernize and diversify the economy away from oil, but the disappearance of him is causing many execs to pull out of the saudi conference dubbed davos in the desert. "the new york times" has pulled out, bloomberg and cnbc and now jamie dimon is no longer attending. a spokes person did not say why. also bill ford won't go due to
2:07 am
scheduling we are told. by steve mnuchin plans to be there, at least for now. officials will be evaluating the information that comes out this week. the president refusing to rule out more family separations at the mexico border. mr. trump expressing support for the controversial policy insisting it defers families from coming to the u.s. illegally. >> frankly when you don't do -- when you allow the parents to stay together, okay, when you allow that then what happens is people are going to pour into our country. >> you're going back to that? >> well, we're looking at a a lot of things. we want to change the immigration laws because they're laughingstock all over the world. >> are you willing though -- i think you're saying it's under k consideration. >> i want all the laws changed for coming into this country illegally and part of -- i mean, part of the reason i have to blame myself, the economy is so
2:08 am
strong that everybody wants to come into the united states. >> can i just ask this simple question, yes or no. >> go ahead. >> are you willing to reinstitute that policy? you said we're looking at everything. yes or no. >> you can't yes or no, but i will say this. there are consequences from coming into a country, namely our country, illegally. >> now, the president repeatedly insisted that obama also had the same law, but politifact has rated that as false because the trump administration reinforced that. hillary clinton is rejecting critics who claim her husband should have resigned the presidency during the lewinsky scandal. the former secretary of state insists to cbs that she played no role in criticizing the character of her husband's accusers and says she takes full responsibility for her actions. >> in retrospect do you think bill should have resigned in the wake of the monica lewinsky
2:09 am
scandal? >> absolutely not. >> it wasn't an abuse of power? >> no. no. >> there are people who look at the incidents of the '90s and they say a president of the united states cannot have a consensual relationship with an intern. the power imbalance is too much. >> she was an adult and let me ask you this, where's the investigation of the current incumbent against whom numerous allegations have been made? and which he dismisses, denies and ridicules. >> she said that the way that donald trump debated her was imbued with sexism. sears the iconic retail chain that changed how americans lived an shopped is now bankrupt. they started as mail order business with that famous catalog. look at that. the 132-year-old company filed for bankruptcy. sears has been struggling for years losing nearly $12 billion since 2010. since then, sales have plunged
2:10 am
60%. it shut more than 2,600 stores. the final straw -- a $134 million debt payment. that was due today. it couldn't pay it. sears is one of many prominent retailers who declared bankruptcy thanks to the rise of online shopping at big box stores and they failed to modernize and invest. they will keep the profitable stores open and the website open, but sears will close nearly 200 more stores this year. eddie lampert will give up his title as ceo. he says the bankruptcy process will allow sear to become profitable but many retailers have gone out of business after filing like toys "r" us and radio shack and sports authority. now you think of amazon as the store of everything. auto parts, you get that catalog for generations you get that catalog and women and men -- the style would be determined by what was in the catalog. right? >> it failed to make the digital turn.
2:11 am
70,000 employees, you hope they can emerge out of this. we shall see. breaking news out of london, the announcement from kensington palace, the duke and duchess of sussex are expecting a baby. the newest bundle of joy expected to arrive next spring. joining us live from london, just past 10:00 a.m., max foster. good morning, max. royal baby trending once again on twitter. >> reporter: here we go again. everyone is going to be looking out for that bump during this tour of australia, new zealand, also fiji as well. a moderate risk of the zika virus in fiji, but i have just been told there will be no change in the itinerary. they're still going there. nothing is changing here. the medical advice, they're not concerned about that. the other thing i have learned in the last half hour, they announced the news to the royal family at their cousin eugenie's wedding on friday.
2:12 am
which some believe is controversial. but the duke and duchess of cambridge are all delighted by this news. i have been told that and meghan's mother has been informed. she said she's very happy about this lovely news and she looks forward to welcoming what is her first grandchild as well. this baby will be seventh in line to the throne after prince harry. not a senior royal. but one with a very high profile. so her parents indeed will find out the sex when the baby is born. >> seventh in line ain't bad. is that cool, when you're at someone's wedding you announce you are pregnancy? does that -- is that stealing their thunder? what's the protocol? >> i'm not sure. i'm not sure. well, everyone, congratulations. all right, 12 minutes past the hour. president trump set to tour hurricane ravaged florida hours from now. more on the damage and the missing ahead. come on dad!

president trump and the first lady travel to florida for a firsthand look at the delaware nation left by -- devastation left by hurricane michael. in hard hit mexico beach, a grim announcement from the police. a dozen people who decided to ride out the storm are still unaccounted for. martin savage is in mexico beach. >> reporter: good morning. the president is expected to visit mexico beach and whether he flies over or touches down on the ground, he will be impacted by what he sees there's no way that television does justice to the amount of destruction you will find here. the words you can't find them. and the video, there's not enough of it to give you the full scope and scale of it. but even as the president visits, even as of course he promises more resources to be brought to bear, the biggest thing that they're worried about in this community is finding those who are unaccounted for. they know that they're about --
2:18 am
there are about 300 people that rode out this storm or at least said they were going to. and the problem is trying to account for those people in the aftermath with so much devastation. communication has been a problem, although the cell service is back. there's been the problem that they had the addresses of where people were. but when they went to find their homes after the storm in some cases those homes were completely gone. now a lot of the people have been accounted for, they have self-reported or they have again seen by witnesses alive and well afterwards. but the problem is there is a number of people who haven't been found. and the longer time goes on, and there's no word from them, well, the greater the concern goes that they are still here somewhere. so search and recovery teams from across the state and beyond had been going through the buildings and they have searched all of them. now they're left with the debris and there's just so much of that to be sifted through. it can still be several more days before they can make a full accounting. until then, they're encouraging residents to stay away. this community cannot support
2:19 am
the people that used to live here. there's no power, there's no sewer. there's no running water. and we have already pointed out communications are spotty. then there's the risk of fire. there's so much timber on the ground here. you could have another disaster on top of the one you already have. dave and christine? >> that's just really a sad story there. so much hard work. >> a long road ahead. sunday night, a nail-biter for new england sports fans. the patriots and chiefs, what might be the most entertaining game of this nfl season. tied at 40 in the final seconds, how it ended next in the bleacher report with coy wire. >> touchdown.

it was a late and a great night for new england sports fans. coy wire has more on the bleacher report. good morning to you. john berman must be a tired but thrilled sports fan this morning. >> might tune into new day to see the bags under his eyes. good to see you, dave. one evening, the red sox and the patriots gave their fans two thrilling victories that will be talked about for quite some time. the patriots had a huge lead at halftime. patrick mahomes, he would not go quietly into that good night though. he hits tyreek hill on this 75 yard bomb. k.c. tying the game at 40 with over three minutes to go and tom brady's thinking three minutes that's plenty of time to do what i do. and i'm going to do it like i'm doing it for tv. gronk comes to life and that
2:25 am
sets up a field goal attempt with time expiring and stephen gostkowski from 28 yards, new england hands the chiefs their first loss of the season. 43-40. brady says, hey, there's more of that to come. >> i think we have a lot of clutch players. i think we had no problem grinding it out. that's what the football season is all about. i don't think we have seen our best and i think we all will play a lot better. game 3 of the american league championship series, the red sox/astros and jackie bradley jr., a three-run double off fenway's green monster. the astros kept it a too. to the ninth inning, bregman launched one. it would be a two-run homer, but falling just short there. that's the final out of the game. boston ties up this series at one game apiece. a 7-5 victory. more playoff baseball tonight. dodgers hosting the brewers in

2:32 am
welcome back to "early start." >> i'm christine romans. president trump and the saudis trading threats over the disappearance of journalist jamal khashoggi. he said that saudis face severe consequences if they killed him and a saudi news channel saying that the u.s. faces an economic bloodbath if it imposes sanctions on saudi arabia. i want to bring in international diplomatic editor nic robertson. he's there in istanbul at the consulate where khashoggi was last seen. >> reporter: yeah, it would seem impossible that that op-ed would appear without sanction at the top level. no one would have the courage to do that unless they knew it
2:33 am
would be smiled upon if you will. if there was any sanctions against saudi arabia saudi arabia would fight back and be doubly strong. then came what seemed to be a roll back from the saudi embassy in d.c. saying what we mean by that news release is that we're very thankful and grateful for our friends around the world including the united states for not rushing to judgment while we wait to see how the investigation pans out. the investigation however is not panning out at the moment. the saudis are not speaking about it other than denying that khashoggi was murdered inside the consulate. we are hearing that there was a phone call between the saudi king, king salman and president erdogan here in turkey. they will agree to form a working group. well, last week officials agreed to allow the turkish investigators to get into the consulate and a few days before that the saudis said that the turkish investigators could get inside the consulate. the gap between the two sides is very big. it is not getting smaller.
2:34 am
both sides are entrenching at a moment. international pressure is now mounting on saudi arabia to allow a transparent and open investigation. key of course getting the turkish investigators, those forensic experts, into the consulate where they claim khashoggi was killed. christine? >> nic robertson in istanbul in front of the consulate, thank you. president trump promising severe punishment, but avoiding a firm stand on saudi arabia's role in the disappearance of jamal khashoggi. in that "60 minutes" interview the president said nobody knows whether crown prince bin salman ordered khashoggi's murder. is. >> it's being investigated. it's being looked at very, very strongly. and we would be very upset and angry if that were the case. as of this moment, they deny it and deny it vehemently. could it be them, yes. >> boris sanchez with more this morning from the white house. >> reporter: christine and dave, president trump has not explicitly pointed the finger at
2:35 am
saudi arabia over the disappearance of "washington post" columnist jamal khashoggi. instead, president trump saying the white house will get to the bottom of the disappearance of that journalist. now the president though has chafed at a bipartisan group of senators who have suggested that congress should intervene and get involved. potentially by blocking $100 billion arms deal that president trump secured with saudi arabia shortly after taking office. the president suggesting that it would likely hurt the american economy and jobs more than it would hurt saudi arabia or send a message to them. the president spoke with "60 minutes" on sunday night suggesting that if the white house found that saudi arabia was responsible, there would be a steep price to pay. listen to this. >> there's a lot at stake, and maybe especially so because this man was a reporter. there's something -- you'll be surprised to hear me say that, there's something really terrible and disgusting about that if that were the case. so we have to see. we're going to get to the bottom
2:36 am
of it. and there will be severe punishment. >> reporter: now the hesitation from president trump to really condemn the saudi arabians could be seen as an indication of how much this administration has staked on saudi arabia and the future of the middle east. we know that this administration believes very strongly that crown prince mohammed bin salman is intricate -- an intricate part of the future of the middle east, not only with countering iranian aggression but any potential israeli/palestinian peace man moving forward. >> thanks, boris. you know talk of sanctions hit saudi arabia's stock market. the riyadh main index was down 7%. saudi arabia has been working to diversify the economy away from oil, but khashoggi's disappearance is prompting big name business partners to cut ties. rich branson suspended investment talks and many execs are pulling out of the high profile saudi investment
2:37 am
conference dubbed davos in the desert. media partners have pulled partnerships and now jpmorgan chase's jamie dimon won't attend. they haven't said why, but he ease pulled out. bill ford has pulled out, because of scheduling. but steve mnuchin will be there and they'll be evaluating the information this week. let's talk about this from washington with political economist greg valuier, a chief strategist from horizon investment. >> good morning. >> so we'll talk about that conference in a moment. but let's start with what the united states can do because president trump promised severe punishment. here's what marco rubio said on sunday about what the u.s. can do. >> i believe the trump administration will do something. the president has said that. but if he doesn't, congress will. that i can tell you with 100% certainty. >> well, severe action needs to be taken.
2:38 am
i think the congress will take it upon themselves to take that action if it turns out as the press reporting seems to indication that saudi arabia was involved. >> okay, greg, so the president made clear that $100 billion arms deal no matter how much it's really worth is not on the table here. if he does nothing, what can rubio and congress do? >> well, they can come up with their own sanctions, dave. and i mean this is like a daniel da silva novel. what tremendous story angles. the president and jared kushner made a big bet on this prince. there could be implications for the markets, for gasoline prices, for the state of the saudi economy. and most intriguingly politically this president who's had iron control over his party is now going to maybe lose a war with republicans who want to do something. >> what about the saudis? i mean, what can they do? we have heard there's this op-ed that appears to be sanctioned by the saudi leadership that said the kingdom affirms the total rejection of any threats and
2:39 am
attempts to undermine it whether by threatening to impose economic sanctions using political pressures or repeating false accusations and it will respond with greater action. what can they do? can they jack up oil prices? >> sure they can. i mean, their response over the weekend was so defiant. basically saying, you know, dare us that i think an oil response is not out of the question. prices could go higher. this could be quite disruptive for western markets. hopefully, cooler heads will prevail and the saudis will realize what's at stake here. if they think it will be a weak and a passive response from washington, they're not reading them correctly. >> saudi arabia remains the largest exporter of oil. in a bigger picture, once you get beyond gas prices and sanctions, what's at stake here in terms of american values and a way of life and freedom of the press around the world? >> yeah, i think that when you
2:40 am
look at the reaction, dave, from business leaders around the world, from other foreign governments you realize the u.s. can't afford to be totally isolated on this. we're going to have to come up with some kind of response. and this very hard-line prince probably will take it poorly. so this has all of the makings of a protracted crisis that the markets have to pay close attention to. >> you know something i noticed about the president's posturing over this, over the weekend, you know, he kept talking about jobs and this -- you know, these military contracts. that's first time i have heard a president talk about the importance of doing business with a country as opposed to doing business with countries because we have influence on their domestic agendas. that's a real shift. >> yeah, i think it is. i think though you have to say he's been on a roll, with the great jobs market, with the economy that looks solid, with a lot of key senate races starting to turn a little bit towards
2:41 am
republicans. so i think he wants to emphasize the jobs angle here. but he's got to be careful on gasoline prices. >> yeah. >> rubio brought it back to what you're talking about. having influence over the saudis' behavior. i want to get your thoughts on way down the road, on 2020, some new cnn polling the more things change, the more they stay the same. joe biden the top favorite for democrats. but that was before michael bloomberg announced that he is a democrat. what do you see happening there? >> two points. number one, i think bloomberg may be too moderate on stop and frisk for the democrats who are moving to the left. the other thing is even though biden leads there's a fascinating story in this morning's "washington post" talking about the one campaign that's really getting off the ground that's really well organized and that is elizabeth warren's. >> all right. we'll read that story in "the washington post." thank you so much. nice to see you, greg. all right, president trump set to tour hurricane ravaged florida. more on the damaged and the missing, that's ahead. make a smart choice. replace one meal or snack a day with glucerna...
