tv CNN Newsroom With Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul CNN November 3, 2018 7:00am-8:00am PDT
glad to have you with us. i am christi paul. >> i am victor blackwell. we are days away from one of the most heated midterm elections in recent memory. republicans running on a booming economy and the fear of a democratic takeover. democrats are running on a referendum of the president and his party. >> the biggest issue that no one is talking about on either side now is gun violence, even though on average 96 americans are killed every day by guns. that's more than 30,000 in a given year. exactly a week ago this hour 11
people were shot and killed in pittsburgh as they prayed. and last night two people were murdered in florida. the same state where the parkland shooting happened earlier this year. kron correspondent diane gallagher has the latest. >> this was at a yoga studio, a class practicing hot yoga in tallahassee, florida. a gunman came in and shot five people and pistol whipped another before police say they believe he turned the gun on himself. two of the women he shot died. 61-year-old and a 21-year-old. authorities have identified the shooter as a 40-year-old, scott beerley. they don't know the connection to the yoga studio at all. they know he went in and began shooting and that the women inside, students of yoga tried to fight back. again, he did pistol whip one of the students as well.
according to authorities three of the victims have been released from the hospital, the other two remain in stable condition. at the time, andrew gillum on the campaign trail, democratic candidate for governor in florida, had been on the campaign trail with former president obama, he said i'm going to go back, i'm going to stop campaigning, go back to tallahassee because he is the mayor of tallahassee. and governor rick scott who is also running, he is a republican candidate for senate in florida is also returning to tallahassee. both of them, christi, victor, thanked law enforcement for the quick response. they arrived within three minutes. but by then, the gunman had already killed himself and you have two that were killed and others injured. >> is this the point at which or too soon that they start to talk about gun violence in their respective races or are they avoiding it? >> reporter: i don't know that i would say they're avoiding it.
gillum talked about it, but we have seen it on the campaign trail. president trump is setting the tone. you mentioned here when you were talking about this, this is where the shooting at marjory stoneman douglas high school happened in february, killing 17 people. there was there was a shooting at a videogame tournament in jacksonville. florida is no stranger to mass shootings this year, and there was a political movement after what happened in park land led by students and people in the community that has continued on. it developed a lot of attention. people rallied around them through the country, and that seems to have faded when it comes to attention, both in the media and of course on the trail. nothing from the president so far on the shooting at the yoga studio. >> diane, thank you so much for that update. right now private shabbat services are under way in pittsburgh for the three congregations targeted in last week's attack on the tree of life synagogue. all week long there has been a
global outpouring of support for jewish communities as families buried their loved ones. >> a new campaign, show up for shabbat is asking all americans to show up to synagogues this weekend, fight anti-semitism. we see this growing memorial behind you. what more are you seeing there, jean casarez? >> reporter: it was a week ago today now when this was all happening. and as you know, the tree of life synagogue is a crime scene, an active investigation crime scene, so they're having a shabbat service right behind me here. this is where everyone from the community was welcomed. it is rabbi chuck diamond speaking now. i listened in a little bit. he was talking about at this moment is when it happened a week ago, and he said on the sabboth we as rabbis do not carry cell phones, but rab ee
meyers last week had his cell phone on him, hiding in the choir loft and called 911, and rabbi diamond said today i have my cell phone on me also. so it is a large gathering. it is a rainy day. but not too far from here, three congregations that were actually in the synagogue last week are celebrating together the sabboth, and we understand during that shabbat service going on now, they just had a minute and 11 seconds of silence. 11 seconds for every victim whose life was taken last week at this very time. >> jean casarez at the tree of life synagogue. thank you so much. >> there's a man tasked with bringing the community together, and that's rabbi jeffrey meyers. >> he invited allison cammarata to see the place of the crime at the synagogue behind jean, and how the community is trying to
heal. >> these just showed up. we didn't put them here. >> they organically showed up. >> these are the names of the victims and it just showed up. this is an outpouring of love from countless people. i am floored by the love. i don't know where the tents came from. these weren't here yesterday. >> is that right? >> the rain is coming in. somebody brought in tents. this is amazing. this was not done by the synagogue, the community did this. i'm just amazed. amazed. >> what is it like for you to walk around here six days after you ran for your life from this building? >> it was painful, it still is. it is painful. i mean, i know it is part of the grieving process, but, you know, i'm a witness. i'm a victim.
i'm a survivor. and i'm also a human. i stand here and i'm in pain. >> are you scared when you see the building? >> no, i'm not scared. i'm angry. how dare you defile our holy space. what made you think you could ever do that. how would you feel if someone did that to your mother's house of worship. how would you feel. and those are questions he has to deal with. >> you sense anxiety and fear from the community? >> yes, they're afraid. >> they're afraid it is going to happen again. >> yeah. >> you've been so vocal on national tv, you have given your message of love and to tone down the hate. i wonder do you have moments where you breakdown or are you still on adrenaline? >> perfect example. after the last funeral today, it
was the last one. i appreciate the fact that outside, there's a side with a contemplating garden. i sat there and cried like a baby. i couldn't stop. i thought the procession was waiting for me, i couldn't stop. it just came out. couldn't stop. i haven't held it in me nonstop, but this is the last funeral, and every time i do one, for me, when i chant the memorial prayer, it takes a piece of my soul away. i have no more left to give. my tank is empty. >> and so what do you say to your congregants who say why, how does this happen, why, how does god let this happen? >> i don't believe god lets this stuff happen. humans have a choice. this person made this choice. to me god is the one i turn to when i have no strength to say god, give me strength to get
through this. and that's what i do. every moment of every day, give me strength. somehow god does. >> and all of the people that lined up here, why are they here? what do you think they're coming here to do? >> the community is just mourning. this is pittsburgh. this is what pittsburgh is. we're one community. and pittsburgh is hurting. and we're here to mourn. this is what pittsburgh is about. it makes pittsburgh a special place. >> are you ever going back into this building? >> yeah. we're going to do whatever is the necessary work. we have to redo the sanctuary. we have to sit and figure out how and what it means and what's the best choice in terms of what to do, sit and spend time and plan properly and we will rebuild in whatever way we need to, and we'll be back. >> seeing the gun bullet holes through the door, through the glass door, that's really
chilling. >> it is. it is. i walked through the sanctuary. it is a horror. it is worse than any sci-fi film because it is real, it is not phony hollywood. i never think i'd live to see that horror in my life. because i face anti-semitism before, i faced it growing up as a kid. i never thought i would see the horror of this ever, ever. >> show me here what stands out to you. show me when you come to look at this outpouring of the community. >> the sheer immensity of love. it gives me hope because it reminds me there are so many good people, and this gives me strength to say hate will never win. >> thank you to allison cammarata. campaign surrogates are fanning across the country, talking jobs, the economy, immigration. after the headlines that you see

it is the final weekend before the midterm. president trump is having two rallies, one in montana, one in florida. >> reminding supporters of the booming economy and things economically are doing well, and the supreme court picks. warning the democratic blue wave will bring a crime wave. one thing he is staying away from, gun violence. sarah westwood joins us live. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, victor. president trump is not talking gaun guns beyond threatening the individual democrats he is campaigning against will take away guns. he is talking about immigration and the economy with good job numbers coming out yesterday. for better or worse, it is trump that's controlling the
conversation this election. not just the national conversation but also setting terms of debate in some of the most competitive races across the country, and in particular in senate races in states that he won. national democrats are often having to spend time on the campaign trail responding to or rebutting what trump is talking about, and maybe in some individual house races, they have been able to keep the focus on what they want to talk about, like popularity of obamacare. for the most part, democrats are not in control of what is getting discussed. that means gun control is not as much a part of the national conversation, despite the shootings unfolding in recent weeks, and what's more, national gun control push could actually hurt some of the most vulnerable democrats running in the red states. former president obama reemerged on the political scene this week, out stumping for some democrats, accusing president trump of using division as a tool in this election and
spending time talking about issues that trump decided to champion this cycle. take a listen. >> they want to take away your good health care and essentially use socialism to turn america into venezuela. and democrats want to totally open the borders. they have the caravan, let them in. do you want to let them in? does anybody want to let them in? no. you're right. >> the consequences of any of us staying home really are profound because america is at a cross roads. the health care of millions of people are on the ballot. making sure working families get a fair shake is on the ballot. but maybe most of all the
character of our country is on the ballot. >> reporter: the president has seven rallies between now and election day. he will spend those focusing on immigration and the economy and the democrats hope to preserve hopes of a blue wave as many competitive races tighten into tossups with a couple of days left before voters cast ballots. >> appreciate it very much. thank you. let's talk more about gun violence, something president trump is not talking about at the rallies, and even statewide candidates, congressional candidates aren't talking about it. this is a bloomberg map of campaign issues, showing what every state sees as they're swamped with political ads. green is health care, yellow taxes, orange, jobs.
there's environment, infrastructure mixed in as well. the only place in the country they're running ads on guns is a small area in california. why aren't more people talking about guns? joining me, brian robinson, republican strategist, former spokesman for georgia republican governor nathan deal, and darren johnson, and president and ceo of the consulting group. let me come to you first. president trump promised action on gun violence. he is not even talking about it any more. where is the action, where even is the rhetoric? >> i feel like this gun debate is on auto repeat every time you have a shooting. everybody is terrified of the atmosphere that we have now, this back to back shootings this week, we've had worse ones in the past. the reason you're not seeing president trump talk about it on the campaign trail now is because we know where he stands.
we know that he is for protecting gun rights, protecting constitutional rights, which is where his voters want him to be. >> we know where he stands on immigration, but he talks about that every day. >> he sees that as a great way to motivate his base because it is an issue that's very important to people in his coalition. they see our rule of law being ignored, see a wave of people continuing to come in, and they want to see action on it. it is a great issue to talk about because it is a great divide between the two parties now. but on guns, look, we know where president trump stands and if he goes out there today and gives his opinion on it, which is we have to protect constitutional rights, there are 300 million guns out in the country, there's no way gun control stops gun violence without confiscating guns, that's the truth. but if he says that today, what's going to happen. the media will tear him up for the next three days heading into the election. it is not the topic he wants to
talk about before tuesday. >> he said before he took it back that he wanted to take guns and then due process, but he promised to do something about gun violence, now he is not even talking about it. let me talk to you on democrats here. after the massacre in park land -- parkland and march for our lives in march, there were congressional democrats standing in solidarity with students of parkland, saying they would make it an issue in the midterms. where are those democrats now, is it because as sara suggested a few moments ago that it would be inconvenient to have a national conversation for democrats running in montana, indiana, missouri, west virginia? >> victor, you know, one of the democrats that led the effort toward gun control and gun safety in this country was andrew gillum. that's why i am in florida to campaign for him to be the next governor of florida. you have to remember, throughout his campaign for governor has not only said he wants to ban
assault weapons to reduce crime violence in this country and gun violence, but he has also gone a step further. he doesn't believe people with a domestic violence record should be able to own guns in their homes. and we know that polls and surveys show women in particular that live in a house with a domestic violence person with a record are more than likely to be assaulted. what you saw in tallahassee is unfortunate. i give my condolences to the two victims and other people wounded. what you have is a person with multiple guns, still an on-going investigation, whether this was a domestic incident or not, but to walk into a studio, a hot yoga studio with intent to harm people and to use a gun to impose your hey tread, therein lies how people feel motivated by rhetoric they hear from this president. >> let me turn to something else, this is from a rally yesterday, brian.
this is president trump using his predecessor's name for some political reason. let's watch what the president said. >> it is no surprise that joe donnelly is holding a rally this weekend with barack h. obama. barack obama. i watched him speak today. he had a very small crowd. they don't talk about that and they never talk about how big our crowds are. >> president obama's middle name is hussein. what's the purpose of emphasizing the "h" in president obama's name. >> well, that is his name. the president just said his name. you can say j. donald trump if you want to incite him maybe in
some way. the boos weren't there because of the h, it was because they don't like president obama's record in office and want it changed. >> what's the purpose of the h? >> it is his name. it is his name. >> that response suggests that you do not take any of the context of the last 11 years of when hussein was a big deal in the 2007 campaign. >> i don't think that that crowd was was incited by the use of that initial. it was going to get the same response. barack obama is a known entity with the audience. look, we are days away from a campaign. the fact that the president is drawing dividing lines between a well known democrat that really gets republicans fired up is not at all surprising. but i don't see anything inherently offensive about using the guy's name. it is his name. >> darren?
>> brian and i, we talk about this a lot. it was not so much what donald trump did but it was to your point, victor, the inference of sort of pausing and saying "h". i think that motivated that crowd who are trump followers who have been following trump with his dog whistle tactics since he has been running for president. the bottom line is this, and brian is right. we're three days from a major election. i hope that voters go to the voting box and vote for candidates with a plan to reduce gun violence and try to bring some sensible gun control and gun safety laws to our country. the only way to change this rhetoric from the right, radicalism from the right is vote them out. i hope voters take advantage of that tuesday. >> i will point out that president obama was taking shots at donald trump in his speech by saying this is about the character of the nation. he is saying he thinks donald trump had bad character. >> you can't come on this show
and say donald trump has good character. there's no way you can associate good character or compassionate in any form or fashion with donald trump. donald trump has been insulting americans, people that want to migrate to this country legally since he has been in office. you can't say this president has good character at all. >> i love you, but if donald trump talked about barack obama's character, you would call it a dog whistle. >> he was the same guy that questioned whether or not president obama was a citizen of the united states or not. let's talk about character. this is the same man that led a birther movement, forced the president to come out and show he was an american citizen. he implied things about the former president's daughter and said things about the first lady. president obama has never attacked president trump's children or attacked his character on a personal level, but he has attacked his record. >> he did yesterday.
>> he attacked his record. he is a president that lacks humanization when it comes to the issue. we have 11 people murdered, brian, basically a person went into this place to basically murder folks while they were worshipping and said nothing about it. >> that's not because of donald trump. >> we have to end it there. thank you very much. >> thank you, guys. >> thank you. you can tell by the conversations, this is a critical election. there's a lot at stake. balance of power in congress, 36 gubernatorial races, thousands of local elections. we're bringing you all of the key races with up to the minute results. special live coverage election night starts at 5:00 eastern. the president says he wants to tell the truth. according to folks at the "the washington post" fact checker blog, the president is struggling with that. in fact, with more than 6,000 false statements.

i always want to tell the truth. sometimes it turns out something happens or there's a change, but i always like to be truthful. >> that was president trump with jonathan carl of abc news. he tells the truth when he can. it's a remarkable admission. according to folks at "the washington post" fact checker blog, the president is increasingly not telling the truth at a dramatic rate. according to the post, in the first nine months of the administration, president trump made on average five false or misleading claims a day. in the seven weeks leading up to midterm elections, the daily average is up to 30 false or
misleading claims a day. whether it is about the migrant caravan, tax cut, health care, or the saudi arms deal, the president is just not telling you the truth. >> you're going to find everything. they have a lot of everybody in that group. it is a horrible thing. it is a lot bigger than 5,000 people. we are studying deeply around the clock a major tax cut for middle income people, not for business at all, for middle income people. i would say sometime around the first of november, maybe a little before that. >> are you happy with elizabeth warren releasing results to her dna test? >> no, i have not. who cares. you better read it again. we have $450 billion, 110 billion of which is a military order, but this is equipment and
various things ordered from saudi arabia. $450 billion. >> we're talking about over 40,000 jobs. >> it is 450,000 jobs. >> 500,000 jobs. >> 600,000 jobs, maybe more than that. >> talking about over a million jobs. >> we will always protect americans with pre-existing conditions. we're going to take care of them. some of the democrats have been talking about ending pre-existing conditions. >> i don't think we like sanctuary cities here. by the way, a lot of people in california don't want them either. they're rioting, they want to get out of sanctuary cities. >> dick russell, friend of mine, headed up new york stock exchange and september 11th, and new york stock exchange was open the following day. he said what they had to do to open it you wouldn't believe. >> the latest count from "the washington post" fact checker
blog shows the president has made 6,420 false or misleading claims since inauguration day. in 649 days. we started to highlight that tally earlier, i searched for a way to make something conceptual like a false statement tangible, visual. i remembered a party game i hated as a kid, guessing the number of gum balls. ever since, we showed you thousands of false claims and downright lies. here's the latest count. 6,420 gumballs. we filled 11 and a half jars fewer than two years into term. when we started this in january, i went to a local party supply store, filled a cart with whichever gumballs were in the store. there are so many, we buy them from a wholesaler. let's look at the last couple of months. according to the post,
september, 2018 was president trump's second biggest month with a total of 599 bogus claims. the biggest month of false claims, october, 2018, with more than 1100. the president is just not telling you the truth. joining me, glen kessler, fact checker, columnist at "the washington post." glen, thank you so much for the work you do at the post. first question i want to ask you, you all use the classification of false statement and misleading statement and not lie. why? >> well, i can't get into the president's head and determine whether he realizes what he is saying is completely false. he tends to be very situational and he may say something one day, may say something the opposite the next day, and it is unclear whether or not he realizes that he's switched like
that. there's one instance we did document and use the word lie, that had to do with statements concerning payments to stormy daniels. we could definitely point that he clearly knew what he was saying was false. >> so let's talk about numbers here. we're at 6,420. if he says the same thing, makes the same false claim, false statement ten times, that's counted ten times, right? walk me through the numbers. >> right. each time he says a false statement in a particular venue or setting. if he says three times in one rally that he passed the biggest tax cut in u.s. history when in fact it is only 8th, we would count that as one. but if he says it at the rally and then says it to the press before the rally and has an interview after the rally, that would be three separate times. >> is this the first time the post has done this type of fact checking blog for a president,
checking every statement in for instance, how would president obama have stacked up? >> we have had the fact checker for 11 years now. we obviously did fact check president obama and he earned lots of poor pinocchio ratings. but this day by day tally we had to start for president trump. he says so many things that are false. we were looking at it as a way to put the easy checked false things in a category, therefore we could devote longer fact checks to more substantive issues. it has become a little overwhelming, particularly in the last couple of months. >> you're right. in the latest report the burden of keeping track of the verbiage consumed the weekends and nights of fact checker staff. thank you for the work you do at the blog at the post. glen kessler, thanks so much. >> you're welcome. the midterm elections of course are three days away. and facebook has deleted

the walls were caving in. >> they're using thermal images equipment to determine if anyone else may be trapped inside. the cause of the collapse they still don't know. millions of us have cast votes, right? millions more are going to do so tuesday. questions remain about whether the votes are safe, and whether voters themselves have been influenced by online trolls. twitter deleted thousands of automated accounts, posting messages discouraging people from voting. and facebook deleted almost 1.3 billion fake accounts in a six month period. cnn national security analyst samantha vinograd is with us. sam, most of us are on social media a lot. can we trust what we are seeing? >> i don't think so, christi, particularly before a high profile event like u.s. elections. the bottom line is our adversaries probably consider the information domain the place they get the most bang for the
buck. you look at something like twitter. twitter has more users than america has americans. those are global users, but the point is with a simple retweet of a conspiracy theory, a lie, misinformation, inflammatory content, especially from someone like president trump, they get to reach so many american voters instantaneously, which is very different than traditional means of trying to use propaganda or other covert activities. >> i want to play some sound from michael daniel, president obama's former cyber czar. i spoke with him a couple of hours ago. he said beyond social media the electoral infrastructure is vulnerable. talking local and state voting machines, databases, tabulation reporting. listen to what he said. >> unfortunately those systems are incredibly vulnerable still. the states and local jurisdictions have made significant investments in many
areas and improved the situation considerably since 2016 but many of the systems remain very vulnerable. >> state and local systems and jurisdictions surely can't be financially prepared to take care of what has to be done to secure all of that. how valuable can the federal government be, would they come in, try to solidify some systems? >> they would. as you remember, former department of homeland security jeh johnson said it is critical infrastructure. the federal government is sharing more threat information with state and local election committees and personnel, and helping them respond when attacks happened. we allocated more funding to protect the infrastructure, but that's over five years, we know according to dhs, the russians tried to penetrate all 50 states. the threat is massive. it comes back to a key point,
christi, which is we need to focus on defense of our systems and deterrents of attacks, whether it be against election infrastructure or information warfare. >> good point. always appreciate you being here. >> thanks. now to this fight in the classroom at maywood academy high school in california. a teacher and student got into a brutal fight during class and caught by cell phone camera. >> students in the class say the classmate was custody to leave because he wasn't in proper uniform. things got out of control. the student refused to leave, shouted racial slurs at the teacher who is black. then the student threw a basketball at him. students say that's what pushed the teacher over the edge. one student told ktla this was set up. everyone had cell phones out ready to capture it. >> the teacher was arrested, the student went to the hospital with minor injuries. los angeles school district is cooperating with the sheriff's office. detectives with the agency
