tv New Day Sunday CNN November 4, 2018 4:00am-5:00am PST
coverage of the migrant caravan making its way through mexico. >> the caravan is urgent. if they work at a normal pace of 300 miles a day they could be here in time to vote on election day and more than of the women in the caravan are nine months pregnant and holding the babies in until the exact moment they cross over to the border and then literally drop anchor! the babies, get this, are pregnant! they tell you he has got the greatest economy. why is he talking about the border? we have a problem at the border. >> very powerful are trying to convince us that -- speaking of people with dignity and respect
is an outdated form of political correctness. >> if you want to protect criminal aliens, you should vote democrat. >> we need you out there! everybody must win win! >> tonight, we are live from the arizona border where a vicious caravan of dozens, maybe millions of illegal immigrants is headed straight for you and your grandchildren. bright and early at 7:01 from washington, d.c. grateful to of you with us. i am christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. is there a lot to talk about here on cnn. >> a lot of campaigning going on right now. the promises, the projects, the midterm elections that are coming up here and i know that you're ready to go to the polls. a new abc news/"the washington post" pole released the last few
hours shows an edge for the democrats. chief issue driving people to the polls? president trump and health care. will the country move towards president trump's vision or go in a different direction? that is the big question. >> lead campaigners here. the previous president versus the current one. barack obama and joe biden are raelg in illinois and pennsylvania and indiana. trump and pence in tennessee and georgia. here is what the president had to say. >> if you want to protect criminal aliens, you should vote democrat. if you want to protect law abiding americans, vote republican. it's really very simple. >> cnn's ryan nobles is at the white house this morning. good morning to you. >> good morning to you, victor. welcome to washington. the finish line in sight and two
days away of full campaigning before voters have the final say in election 2018. both of the former president barack obama and president trump are busy on the campaign trail today. they have been for the last several days going across the country and really driving out the base and pushing those voters who are inclined to support democrats or republicans and making sure they get to the polls and they are doing that by emphasizing these issues that base voters care about. for republicans and president trump, that is immigration. listen to what the president said last night in florida. >> when you look at that caravan coming up, that is not what we want, that's not for us, folks. not for us. and we want people to come through our strong borders, but they have to come in legally. they have to come in absolutely through a process and they have to come in through merit.
>> reporter: meanwhile, on the democratic side, of course, president obama has been very busy but so has vice president joe biden. he has campaigned relentlessly since after labor day and going across the country to many different states and focusing primary on house races where democrats believe they have the edge. he was in ohio yesterday and he talked about those issues that democrats care about, health care, and entitlements and he warned that republicans will take some of those away if they continue to hold power. listen to what joe biden had to say. >> [ inaudible ] personally and honestly.
>> reporter: you can hear in the former vice president's voice as he has been on the campaign trail as he is losing his voice. president trump starts his day at the white house but on the road shortly. he is head to go places where he is popular. two ruby red states georgia and tennessee and he is going to be there in support of candidates running for governor in georgia and the senate in tennessee. blackburn is the candidate in tennessee and shows you where republicans believe they have an opportunity. they believe they can hold on to some of the ignore governorships and believe they can control the senate based on the results on tuesday, it's the house where republicans feel that they are in trouble right now. of course, we won't know anything until the polls close on tuesday night and many arguments left to be made.
>> ryan nobles, we appreciate it. thank you. let's talk with our expert cnn contributor wesley lowrie and also alice stuart and maria cordova. let's talk about where you pull the deficit money and try to make things better. resonating particularly there in the rust belt when you're talking about medicaid and medicare? >> absolutely. i think it underscores another theme that democrats have been really pushing which is healer, right? medicare and medicaid really continue to underscore how important health care is and how hypocritical the republicans have been. look. they supposedly passed this huge middle class tax cut earlier in the trump administration that was supposed to be a big feather in their cap and nobody is campaigning on that tax cut. why? because it didn't work for the middle class and, in fact, when
the president, quote/unquote, promised just very recently that there was going to be another tax cut for the middle class, he kind of right there admitted that the first one he passed was specifically for the richest and for corporations and that tax cut has cost a ballooning of the deficit which interestingly enough, republicans were all about be deficit hawks before and now they don't seem to care. what biden and other democrats are underscoring if republicans continue to have control of both the house and the senate, they are going to go after medicare, they are going to go after social security and going after medicaid even after they betrayed the american people on taking away protection for preexisting conditions and wanting to take away health care from millions of americans. it is absolutely an issue that is working for democrats. >> but, at the same time, republicans do have a lot to tap when it comes to economy and jobs. october jobs report 250,000 jobs created and low unemployment at
3.7% and these are good economic numbers. >> but they are not running on it. >> republicans are. >> trump isn't. >> trump is talking a lot about the security at the border and the caravan. but these people running for senate and governors and those running in the house, they are talking about the economic conditions and labor force participation rate, is that a good level? so across the board, jobs and the economy are a good messaging point for republicans and with regard to health care, the message they push back on democrats is a lot of democrats want socialized medicine and that -- >> that just not true. that's a lie. >> that's a message that. >> that is not resonating. >> driving with regard to how they can push back on the democrats. >> let's instead of having the broader conversation, try to go into the states and specific races. i want to talk about stacey abrams, the democratic nominee in georgia. the way in which potentially her strategy has shifted a bit. the day after she won the primary, i want to play what she
said then, followed by one of her ads in the general election and we will talk about the difference. >> democrats cannot win by pretending to be republicans. republicans see through it and democrats see through it. georgia is actually a bluer state than people realize. we have more than enough of those voters to win without compromising our values and pretending to be moderate to conservative to appeal to a certain segment. republican groups from outside georgia spend millions of attacking stacey abrams but republicans in georgia say that doesn't match her record. georgia republicans call stacey abrams a pragmatic leader who engages to find solutions and her view allowed her to reach across the deal to help the governor have a bill and she stopped the largest tax increase in georgia history. both sides agree stacey abrams works to help all of georgia. >> we have enough democratic voters. we don't have to act like
conservatives to both sides agree. >> it is really interesting to watch the evolution of any candidate in some of these races. i do think stacey abrams has campaigned even in the general election still has been much more progressive than you might have seen a democrat running in georgia. i think when voters at the polls on tuesday it's interesting. many of the democrats running in a lot of these races, andrew gillum is another example, have been unapologetic progressive and pretty far left that somebody might have advised them running in a southern state. a fight in the democratic party a long time how do you win these states that are red to purple? right some what do you do in these places? do you try to coax back trump voters or otherwise republican voters, or do you say enough democrats in this place we turn them outline awe and we win in when you listen to stacey abrams her strategy pretty much has been how do we turn out a coalition of minorities and young people of white progressives and that has been with ads like that has still kind of been her strategy.
you have to balance do you want to in some ways an ad like that i see a strategy can i make sure republican voters aren't so scared of me they show up and vote for the other person? to me not necessarily an ad trying to convince a republican to vote for stacey abrams but might be one to say i'm not that central threat. maybe you should stay home. urnt aren't you busy or sleepy today? >> that is my home state and i'm keeping a close eye on this race and she has a done a tremendous of retail politicking and having oprah come in there and obama. i think it's critical. they had a tremendous message and motivating voters it's also important to have an informed electorate and knowing georgia, as i do, this is a red state. this is a state that is pro life and supports second amendment and it supports tax cuts and
fiscal responsibility and what brian kemp represents and a stark contrast what we have in stacey abrams but the issues will drive voters. >> i think what stacey abrams has been able to do brilliantly is speak to the elect that has been completely alienated by president trump and by republicans. you have, obviously, over a third african-americans who have a growing electorate and even though the numbers are good for the minority communities that have been consistently attacked by this president and demonized by republicans, they don't feel that. there was a pugh study done recently that latino americans don't feel they have a place in president trump's americans. they feel they are hurt by trump's policy. the economic numbers for african-americans and for latinos, they are not surpassing the importance of what this country means to them and what this president has felt or has
made them feel, which sun safe, unwanted, unwelcome and they are going to go and vote not just to give a voice to that, but to give a voice for their communities, for their children, and to ensure that frankly people understand that the soul of this country is on the ballot and i think that is incredibly important. >> that is probably evident in texas with that race because it's not a given necessarily. the numbers aren't super close but if they come out and the numbers are pretty strong for o'rourke, what does that say about texas? >> yeah. >> as blood red as you get. >> look at so many states. texas, tennessee, georgia. these are states that we have historically in modern history written, colored in red today, right? it's sunday morning but let's color it in red. what is interesting we have seen this from the moment of president trump's election, when you start seeing women's marches popping up in places like north dakota and idaho, right? you started seeing groups like
who are rising up and hosting whether it be book clubs and protests and marches. the question i got a good friend in nashville and i remember talking to her and she is talking about, yeah, we all started reaching out and realizing that every other house or every three houses there was some kind of closeted democrat in there and we were all convinced no other people were here. we all finally got so worked up that we found each other. what is interesting i remember looking at the numbers for early voting among young people in places like texas. the numbers are through the roof compared previously. how many universities are there in a state like texas? >> right. >> how many young people or minorities are there in a state like georgia? >> right. >> that a lot of these states, we have been, in some ways, so -- we prejudge what might be possible and that works both directions. >> yeah. young voting was up, i think, 500% in texas and more than 400 in georgia and see what it does.
>> this is more close than republicans would want it to be but immigration is a key issue for voters there and the fact that ted is strong on voter security and immigration and o'rourke is more for open borders. >> that is not true! he is not for open borders and neither is any democrat! this is where i think they are overreaching and they are jumping the shark because voters in texas are be motivated by the exact anti-bigoted rhetoric that ted cruz is using which mirrors what president trump is doing. >> good to have you all here face-to-face. thank you all so much. good to have you. stay with us. more to talk about in a a couple of minutes. also this morning, democratic candidate for governor in georgia stacey abrams as we discussed here will join jake tapper on "state of the union" only on cnn at 9:00 a.m. and noon. really frightening day yesterday at a florida yoga studio. gunman walks in, tries to act like he is a customer and then
19 minutes past the hour. i want to take you to wisconsin. three girl scouts who were working and picking up trash on the side of the road as well as another woman. all of them killed yesterday when a pickup truck hit them along that road. >> police say the driver jumped a lane of traffic, ran into a ditch, and then hit that group. he also injured another girl who is now in critical condition. the driver initially took off, but later turned himself in. is there a vigil planned tonight at florida state university for two victims who were shot and killed friday inside a yoga studio in tallahassee. >> police say the gunman came inside and posed as a customer and then started shooting. there he is. he wounded five others, including one person who was
pistol-whipped. some of the people in the class did try to stop him but the shooter then took his own life. >> let's bring in cnn national correspondent diane gallagher. what more do we know about the two women? >> reporter: they both were associated with florida state university and they had great impacts on that community in tallahassee and at fsu. 61-year-old dr. nancy van vessem was an intern and chief medical director at capital health plan in tallahassee. she also was on staff. she was a faculty member at fsu and she worked with hospice care and she helped the students transition at fsu and described as a light who touched everybody that she met. 21-year-old maura binkley was a senior at fsu and set to graduate this may. her father spoke with affiliate wsb last night. >> maura truly lived a life
of -- really devoted to peace, love, caring for others. had that be a vehicle for -- for change, to stem the tide of violence, the threats to literally overwhelm our society. >> reporter: she was a double major in journalism and german. she, again, had done a study abroad and was planning after she graduated to go work with teach for america. >> diane, i know police are trying to figure out what happened and who this shooter was. i understand that he had a really disturbing digital footprint here, is that right? >> reporter: yeah, a very disturbing digit footprint. they are not sure why he targeted this specific yoga studio. they know he graduated from fsu and police had calls about him in the past harassing women. they had interaction with him. he didn't live in tallahassee any more and drove there four hours and got a hotel and
committed this act. according to "the new york times" and in videos that we, ourselves, have viewed, in 2014, the shooter posted several misogynist and racist videos on youtube where he appears to sympathize with what we now know is the incell movement, involuntarily celibate and men who are rejected by women and he sympathizes with a 2014 mass shooter who blamed rejection from women and why he went on this rampage in santa barbara. again, racist comments, misogynist comments. he lists the names of women who rejected him dating from middle school through his time in the army. police still not sure why this specific yoga studio and if he had any connection to the people there. >> diane gallagher reporting for us this morning. thank you. >> thank you, diane. so the economy, health care,
immigration, three huge issues dominating the headlines, of course, as we count down to election day. what we were just talking about right there -- guns and gun violence. we haven't heard a lot of that from the midterm messaging so we are going to put that to a survivor of the parkland school shooting in florida who is with us next. making my dreams a reality takes more than just investment advice. from insurance to savings to retirement, it takes someone with experience and knowledge who can help me build a complete plan. brian, my certified financial planner™ professional, is committed to working in my best interest. i call it my "comfortable future plan," and it's all possible with a cfp® professional. find your certified financial planner™ professional at letsmakeaplan.org.
so grateful to have you with us. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. earlier this year it appeared as if gun violence would be a key issue heading into the midterms but not the case. >> despite of series of violent incidents involving guns recently issues such as health care and immigration have kind of forced talk of gun violence from the front pajeneleds pages. matt dice is here. he lost friends in that parkland school shooting. we are so sorry what you've had to deal with, matt since that shooting. thank you for being here. i want to ask you what your thoughts are as you watch all of the talks leading into midterms and there is this absence of talk of gun control. >> gun violence prevention is one of the main driving forces
behind the youth vote that is turning out. we have seen youth registration rise during this last year since the shooting and we have now seen youth turnouts rise in early voting numbers. i think on november 6th, we will see more young polls go to polls where this is the number one issue. a harvard poll came out last week that showed school shootings were the number one issue for people under the age of 30 and stopping gun violence was in the top five and that has never happened before. we are not just talking about one wave of youth voters. these are young people who have experienced school shooter views their entire life and seen their peers gunned down on the news day in and day out, so this is a main issue for young voters. we are starting to wake up for the first time. >> it's an issue for young voters but we are not hearing as much about it from elected officials and people who are on the ballot. so to what degree are you satisfied or potentially dissatisfied with how much of a part of the national discourse by the candidates that gun violence and specifically school
shootings that they have been in the last few days heading up to the election? >> we can't specifically talk about school shoost-thtings. last week a synagogue shooting and a shooting in a yoga studio so we have to talk about stopping gun violence. no reason a man who has a history of misogynistic incident online and also domestic violence and battery should be able to legally purchase a gun and kill four people. when we have young people aiming and directing this conversation is goes into our elected officials. i don't know which elected officials you guys are watching i've tracked races around the country where gun violence is the number one issue for several candidates and in several races in florida and the senate and governor race is a hot topic in florida. swinging districts where it used to be lean republican and likely republican, we see democrats taking stronger stances on this issue and it's time the republicans catch up because this is a populace issue and not
a left or right issue but about saving human lives and if you aren't for that you have no right to represent us. >> matt, i'm sorry. i didn't mean to cut you off there. i wanted to read a tweet you put out recently. you wrote just wanted to give you a very direct and friendly reminder that voting day is tuesday. young people can force american leadership to have a moral compass. what do you mean by forcing american leadership to have a moral compass? what do you want them to take away from your votes? >> well, when we have elected officials that take millions of dollars from groups like a group that are profiting from putting children of immigrants in prisons and we have even more elected officials taking millions of dollars from the national rifle association and blocking universal background checks the poll above 90% with people is lacking moral compass.
elected officials choose to act in their special interest and for their profit and not for the people and for what is actually killing us, our lives are at stake. there is someone that is going to be shot and killed in the time that we are doing this interview and our elected officials choose to not have an answer to that. it's an active choice. they are complacent in this and so young people have already turned out in record numbers right now in early voting and i think on november 6th, we will see an even bigger youth wave show up and we will break records this year but this is the beginning because we need our elected officials to know our kids and our lives are off limits and we can no longer stand by and watch our peers gunned down. >> matt deitsch, thank you for being with us. >> thank you. let's bring in a wesley lowrie and alice stuart and
maria cardova. matt says candidates are out talking about this. bloomberg published a map showing where the money for the ads, where they are focused. health care, immigration, the economy. there is only a small section on the west coast there in california where guns are an issue to where candidates are investing in those. so compared to what we saw in february and march where there were democratic leaders specifically standing in solidarity with the students, are we seeing that match now by their action and what they are spending, what their priorities are? >> well, i think what you're seeing -- matt is absolutely right, this issue has not gone away. we might not be talking about it on a daily basis simply because we are reacting to the noise and the lies that come out of president trump's mouth every day, but the reality is the nra has pulled a ton of their funding from the midterm elections. this will be the first time in a long time where opposite groups like every town usa and the
gabby giffords group are outspending the nra. the reason they see it as a surging issue not just young people but progressive democrats all around the country. you have in atlanta, the atlanta suburbs, lucy mcbath whose son was killed by gun violence. >> jordan davis. >> she is focused on this. in virginia, the com stock weston race is focused on gun violence. you have gun violence as matt said in florida is a huge issue in both the governor's race as well as the senate race. southern california, kansas, texas, you have all of these districts that are focused on gun violence and might not be the number one issue, but it is certainly going to be a motivating issue that perhaps the candidates themselves have not completely funded but then you have millions of dollars from all of these outside groups that i mentioned, one of which is led by michael bloomberg, who have been in there with millions of dollars on ads focused on how
gun safety is a number one concern for americans in these midterm elections. in washington state, they have ballot measures and if they pass, they are going to be some of the strongest ballot measures on gun safety that we have seen across the country. >> the key with the messaging from the candidates to the electorate and the key to where they are spending money and how they are spending money, that is based on the pulse of the people and the people are saying, what are your number one issues and what are your key priorities that will motivate you to get to the polls. as you indicated, it will be health care, it will be the economy, and immigration. gun control and second amendment rights are further down there. you're hearing it but not the top line message. what we will continue to see is, unfortunately, these issues bubble to the surface when we have a tragedy or some type of mass shooting and it becomes a topic of conversation. but the reality is candidates know and those that are serving elected office know that second
amendment supporters such as me is a key issue. >> what is the message from republicans, though, on the second amendment? i remember president trump who was outrightly saying democrats want to take away your second amendment. >> which is a lie. >> that's not true. but the key is. >> what is not true? >> that democrats want to take away our second amendment. >> that is not true. >> that's not true, exactly. >> thank you. >> right. but they do want to have restrictions on it. they do want to pull back on some of the restrictions that we have with gun owners. the key with the nra and a lot of sensible-minded republicans and democrats is that the focus of the nra is takes all gonzalez ousted hands of people and not some people. it's not just about gun control. this is about mental health and other key issues with regard to school safety that need to be addressed. so gun control cannot just be about the guns. a lot of other factors that need
to be taken into consideration. it's much bigger than in the huge midterm election but that is just one key component. >> i think the reason why this has been successful for democrats in new mexico too where you have small who is a recreational hunter and she can talk about additional gun safety measures and still have a lot of credibility for people who want be supporters of the second amendment. >> you bring up an important point. the diversity of candidates here wing this time around. we have gone single mothers and more war vets, we have got interest or public interest attorney. sally cohen writes about the hundreds of educators who are running up and down the ballot. >> cia operatives. >> andy, what do you glean from the diversity of the candidates we are seeing this time around? >> of course. i think in many ways i think it will mobilize folks who might not have come out previously.
one of the key things i'm looking on tuesday who shows up to vote and, obviously, we want to look at but when you look at the young people, the numbers in which they have been showing up in early voting and registering to vote previously, when you look at minority populations in states where minority vote isn't a major factor. all right? there is a real question. because a lot of our politics is reactive. we talk about the health care in the cycle because health care is proven to motivate voters. you have a senate race shift left ward by five or ten points and shown because of young people, maybe perhaps gun violence might become a leading issue in a state like florida. we see politicians pay attention to the people who they know are showing up. i remember covering local politics and covering local politics meant spending time in senior homes because they vote every single time. one of the interesting things is seeing who shows up on tuesday and how as we shift towards 2020
do theish issues we talking abo day in and day out show up then. >> we will see more women come out based in the me too movement and giving women power and making sure that they have people that represent them and speak their views and values and fortunately we are will also seeing more women running for office. >> i was going to say you expect and anticipate more women to the polls because they have more women to vote for. >> record numbers of women running for office and record numbers of women, as well as men, who actually represent a diversity of the country and not just in terms of professions. you talked about cia operatives and fighter pilots that are women and women veterans. but you also have record number of muslim women running. you have a record number of lgbt, transgender, latinos and african-american. i think also this motivates all of the communities that have felt so attacked by this
president and moving into an era where they can say, absolutely, my vote matters and let's look at the millennials. for example, a poll came out just now showing only a third will come out to vote which can sound disheartening but in 2014 only a percentage came out to vote so if they come out and vote a huge percentage. >> alice, we were talking about inspiration and the other side of inspiration. there is now robocall that is going out in georgia of racist anti-semitic robocall going out attacking stacey abrams, the candidate for governor there, oprah as well. last night in florida, the agriculture secretary sonny perdue talking about the race for governor there, andrew gillum and ron desantis said this race is cotton pickin' important to don't mess it up. why does this keep happening on this side?
>> first of all, with regard to the racial ad that ran in georgia, it's despicable, it's uncalled for. >> brian kemp denounced it. >> brian kemp denounced it. >> it's a private group out of another state and he has nothing to do with it. >> it's not from the kemp camp, we need to make clear. >> as for the cotton pickin' comment, i think that sometimes people say things and they don't exactly understand fully the context of how it will be received and -- >> you really think he had no idea what he was saying? >> you think there was no sensitivity there? >> it's hard to say but what is in his head and his heart. i'd like to see him walk that back a bit. in the heat of the campaign and a lot of the things come out when you speak off the cuff and perceived in the wrong way. hopefully, he will walk it back some because it is something while the intention may not be to be disrespectful if it's received that way. >> see, i don't know about that. i think they know exactly what they are saying and this is one
of the reasons it's going to motivate voters on the other side to put a stop to this. >> maria and alice and wesley, thank you all for being here. >> don't miss special tonight on cnn that starts at 7:00 eastern. still to come, police have arrested and charged a man after anti-semitic messages were found inside a brooklyn temple. we have more on that ahead. the clock is ticking on irreversible joint damage. ongoing pain and stiffness are signs of joint erosion. humira can help stop the clock. prescribed for 15 years, humira targets and blocks a source of inflammation that contributes to joint pain and irreversible damage. humira can lower your ability to fight infections. serious and sometimes fatal infections including tuberculosis, and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened;

>> graffiti found on three floors of the temple last week and polo sandoval is in new york with more details. what do you know about this suspect and his grandkbackgroun >> reporter: we understand he was politically active and "the new york times" a year ago they wrote a profail pile on james p who is behind bars for his alleged actions in this temple here. when you read that profile piece you get a different sense of a different side of him. according to that article he canvassed in various neighborhoods in his teens and particularly during barack obama's first bid for the presidency. this was his moment when he was essentially being quite politically active and encounter the christine quinn, a former city council speaker in new york and interned for her during those years here. the former speaker speaking out on twitter recognizing that this is an individual who had plenty
struggles, including with homelessness and through the foster care system but, at the same time, also said that these actions, these alleged actions are, quote, inexcusable. interesting when we see two sides of this individual. police however say he is responsible for the vandalism that took place here earlier in the week. we should mention at the same time that mayor bill de blasio same out here and spent some time with members of this location here and essentially speaking out for the entire jewish community and also calling for the unity among several individuals. this graffiti found earlier in the week. the suspect is james polite who is behind bars and charged with four counts of criminal mischief in the fourth degree. >> polo sandoval, we appreciate the update, thank you. well, you know, millions of voters, they have already cast their ballot in the midterm election.
