7:01 am
. very good friday morning to you. i'm jim sciutto. a lot of news this morning. >> i'm poppy harlow in new york. breaking news, the u.s. economy added 304,000 jobs last month that was way ahead of expectations. it was despite a record breaking government shutdown. >> this marks the 100th consecutive month of job gains. i think this is almost double what the expectations were. >> this number blowing away expectations. 304,000 jobs added to the economy in january. i talked to a lot of investors and traders who are bracing for the report because of the 35-day partial government shutdown in january when these numbers were gathered. so despite that, we are seeing this booming jobs report for january. now we are seeing that historic
7:02 am
government shutdown show up in the unemployment number however. that unemployment rate ticking up from 3.9% to 4.1%. that's because of the government shutdown. the furloughed workers were counted as temporarily laid off. a much more brighter reason why the unemployment rate ticked up is because the labor force participation rate ticked up. what that rate shows is more people are feeling more confident looking for jobs. those jobs are paying higher wages. the third prong of the report is positive. the wages going up 3.2%. if you look at it in the broader picture we have seen wages over the three percent. it continues that extension of gains. so you are seeing the confidence in the market playing out. if you are wondering where the jobs are created, leisure jobs
7:03 am
74,000, construction jobs 52,000 and health care jobs, those are good paying jobs. >> great news all around. thanks very much. this morning the loaded democratic field to take on president trump in 2020 just got a little bit more crowded. >> new jersey senator cory booker releasing a video to make his announcement official via social media. >> together, we will channel our common pain to our common purpose. i'm cory booker and i'm running for president of the united states of america. >> joining us now live from newark, new jersey rebecca buck with more. >> reporter: obviously a very symbolic day for cory booker to
7:04 am
make this announcement. it is the first day of black history month and cory booker is the second african-american candidate to get in the race for president. he is not only targeting african-american voters. he has done an interview with univision. he is also going later on the view targeting an audience mostly of women. really looking at constituencies that booker is going to be targeting trying to persuade to join his movement in this campaign. one of the key questions moving forward as he is a candidate in this race is how does he stack up on progressive issues. one big fault is he has been seen as weaker on progressive issues. he has been trying to sure up his record on this. i want you to take a listen to his answer on that. >> what i'm going to be fighting for is a system that is there
7:05 am
for everyone. i signed up and am a big believer in medicare for all. but i believe if we give people a quality public option that we are going to be able to get more people into the system. >> reporter: another question for cory booker is will his message of unity, hope and optimism and love resonate with voters who are very angry at president trump among the democratic party? he addressed this question in some respects in an instagram live just a few minutes ago. he said don't tell me that message is weak. don't tell me that you can't win elections that way. he added he has been doing this for his whole career. we'll see how that message lands when he embarks on his first tour of this campaign. he will be going to iowa and south carolina next weekend. >> thanks for the reporting from newark. >> joining us now in the all important state of iowa, jeff
7:06 am
zeleny, cnn senior white house correspondent. he is following another possible hopeful. let's talk about booker's entrance into the race. >> reporter: sure. there is no question that senator booker is the latest entry. people here in iowa have been anticipating him largely because they remember his visit here to the state. last fall he was campaigning for democrats. this is also a sign it is going to be one of the largest crowded fields but certainly the most diverse field in democratic party history. i think a bit of history is important to remember how iowa fits into all of this. of course, it is only one of the four early states. it has been a critical state in terms of break out candidates. you'll remember 12 years ago barack obama, the junior senator from illinois jumped into the race. it gave him validation going
7:07 am
forward particularly in south carolina. talking to many democratic officials and voters, they want to see all the candidates. they are very much in the shopping season a. strong finish here for anyone certainly will validate them going forward particularly down south. >> sharon brown, another big name, right? >> reporter: no question about it. there are up to nine democratic senators who are looking at this. ohio senator brown is one of them. he is on the beginning of a four state listening tour. we caught up with him last night and we asked him about what's missing from the race. >> i'm sort of weary of democrats that say you only talked to progressives. >> the fact that you are
7:08 am
exploring this would suggest that you think that voice is missing from the conversation. >> i think that voice needs to be stronger. >> reporter: he was talking about how he believes there does need to be a stronger voice directly going addressing working-class voters. particularly he was in howard county iowa, listen to these numbers. in 2012 barack obama won that county by 60% of the vote. four years later donald trump carried that county by 57% of the vote. there are counties like that all across the midwest, the great lake states from iowa to pennsylvania that president trump won over president obama. so that's what sherrod brown is going after. we will see if he gets into the race. we will be coming here to talk to farmers and other groups. there is a sense this race is very much on and at least a couple other senators still may jump in.
7:09 am
>> jeff zeleny, great reporting. stay warm, my friend. >> it's a great point about the districts that went for obama and switched to trump by big numbers. it's states like minnesota, michigan, wisconsin. >> absolutely. minnesota is turning increasingly purple. we will be watching all of it. 740 days to go. on to a really important story breaking. the united states is officially pulling out of a nuclear treaty with russia that dates back for more than three decades. >> secretary of state mike pompeo announced officially that the u.s. is suspending participation from the landmark agreement accusing russia of violating the deal for a number of years now since 2014. >> russia has jeopardized the united states security interests. we can no longer be restricted by the treaty while russia shamelessly violates it. if russia does not return to
7:10 am
full and verifiable compliance by destroying the inf violating missiles, launches and associated equipment, the treaty will terminate. >> let's speak now to "new york times" david sanger. it strikes me here that there is a real danger. they are developing missiles in this category. is that right? >> there is a significant risk of that. the risk is probably greater in asia than it is in europe. the intermediate nuclear forces agreement was signed in 1987. at the time russia and the united states were really the only two significant nuclear players at that moment. the chinese have built much of their arsenal around missiles that actually have the ranges that are prohibited under this treaty. it's the united states that has long worried that they cannot
7:11 am
respond to what the chinese are building because of their constraints inside the treaty with russia. that was the back story. the russians meanwhile made it easy for the u.s. by violating the treaty and deploying a missile that clearly is in violation. >> david, when we look at the big picture, i know it seems simple, but a hard question i suppose to answer, whether this makes the world more or less safe is a big question this morning. >> you know, poppy, it's just the right question because in the nuclear world the margins of safety move gradually, but if something went wrong and there was escalation to a nuclear conflict, it looks pretty terrible pretty fast. here is the risk right now. the risk is that the united states has now pulled out in the past year of two significant
7:12 am
arms control treaties, obviously, the one limiting iran's ability to produce nuclear materials and now this one. the question is whether the russians will now respond to that by building up the missile fleet that so frightened europe in the 1980s that it led to the inf treaty. then there is the chinese element of it, as well. so it is possible that we could look back at this as the turning point at which this big diminishment in the number of nuclear weapons in the world sort of hit bottom and we start going up again. >> that is such a shame to imagine. folks imagine the nuclear arms treaty is a thing of the past. is there any discussion of russia, china and the u.s. sitting down with three parties involved for substantive talks to limit these kinds of weapons? >> there is some discussion of that. the chinese have been very resistant because their view is
7:13 am
this is most of the arsenal. they know if they agree to limit these it would take away pretty much all they had. the russians are also thinking about the next treaty to expire which is the main treaty between the united states and russia. that's the new treaty. it expires in two years right after the inauguruation of the next president. there are no negotiations underway about ix extension. you could find yourself in a situation in almost exactly two years from this week in which all treaties are off the table and have expired. >> that is quite a prospect. >> thank you. have a good weekend. president trump claims that the deputy attorney general told the president's lawyers that the president is not a target or a subject of the mueller investigation. those two words matter a lot. more on it. >> the president says that

7:19 am
cooperative from talking. it would gag prosecutors but they don't speak so much anyway. the president is talking in an oval office interview denying that he directed stone to get the hacked democratic e-mails from wiki leaks in 2016. he is claiming that the deputy attorney general rod rosenstein told his lawyers he is not a target nor a subject of the special counsel's investigation. that brings me to shan wu. good to have your wisdom on this. i want to start with the news first broken by cnn about donald trump jr. there has been a lot of speculation about a phone call to a blocked number that he made before and after that june 2016 trump tower meeting, the speculation being was that to the president or then candidate because we knew his number was blocked? we learned yesterday no. how significant is that? >> i think it's significant in this sense. i don't mean to state the
7:20 am
obvious. we can rely on the fact that he didn't call president trump. i think it is a mistake to make too much of it because it did not know that the president didn't know about the meeting. it does answer the question as to the mysterious blocked number. it is generally good for the president, generally good for don jr. because there were denials that that was who the call was with. the other information we learned, one of them is a friend of the family who has business interests and it was with trump for the original trump to moscow exploring the trump tower issue. for me that raises questions for what is going on with the business interest developing the plan. it does not contradict the idea that the campaign or people were aware of it at the time. >> that's fair and of course it is still possible that he knew. you're taking away a piece of evidence that would be a hard
7:21 am
piece of evidence like a documented phone call which strikes me as significant in the investigation. >> yes. that would definitely be somewhat of a slam dunk on the contradiction of what the president is saying. in that sense it is good news for him. >> okay. other issue. president trump as you know told the "new york times" that rod rosenstein the deputy attorney general assured him that he is not a target of the mueller investigation. i know the wording here is key, target. he also said not a subject. do you believe him? and under what circumstances would a deputy attorney general tell a president's lawyers that? >> i will hold aside the question of whether we believe him or not. if that were true, probably this would be the situation where because of the unusual nature of the special counsel investigation it's arguable that your normal terms like subject or target wouldn't apply because mueller and d.o.j. have
7:22 am
determined he would not be indicted even if the evidence was there. that could account for normally something like the president someone asked to submit written responses to questions which are under oath, that would be a subject. it wouldn't be a near witness. not a target. that is very significant if they meant that because it means we don't think you are really culpable of any criminal wrong doing. it is possible because of the result that the indictment that they are not using terms like that and maybe that is how it is being spun. >> the president was asked about the second case which is the one being pursued by federal prosecutors here in the southern district of new york. it is the one that michael cohen pleaded guilty to crimes and implicated the president. the president admitted he doesn't know the answer to that question. how much of an opening or vulnerability is that for president? >> i think the southern district case has always been a big
7:23 am
vulnerability for him. i find it odd that if you were to believe that the deputy attorney general is advising him on whether he is a subject or target, the southern district certainly falls within the justice department's purview. it seems weird he wouldn't be informed of that one. the focus more on the russian investigation. >> understood. we know where to keep coming back to you for your wisdom. >> wise man. so next week michael cohen returns to capitol hill. he will face some of the same lawmakers that he lied to when he was up there last time testifying. we will talk to a member of the house intelligence committee straight ahead. it's absolute confidence in 30,000 precision parts. or it isn't. it's inspected by mercedes-benz factory-trained technicians. or it isn't. it's backed by an unlimited mileage warranty, or it isn't. for those who never settle,

7:29 am
subject. those were his words of the mueller probe. given the position in congress, have you seen evidence of the contrary? >> well, as you know the justice department has guidance saying that they cannot indict a sitting president. so in that context it's not really clear what target means or subject means. they may not even refer to him in that way because of that guidance. certainly, he is involved in the investigation. we know that. >> on the president's son, new exclusive important cnn reporting from our pamela brown that senate investigators have obtained new information that shows phone calls to a blocked number made around the trump tower meeting with the russians in 2016 were not to then candidate trump. as you know a lot of your fellow democrats have expressed a lot of concern and fear that they were to the president, that they had knowledge of the meeting. the chair of the house intel committee that you sit on

congressman adam shif has called a subpoena to talk about the conversations. he said it was one of his first priorities. knowing what we know now, should it be? >> i think that congressman shif is correct to want to call mr. don jr. in. >> on this, on the calls. now that we know this from senate intel documents, do you feel at peace knowing that or do you feel like you need to question don jr. on those calls? >> we need more information. we need more information about what the records were that were produced because it wasn't produced to the house intel committee. secondly, we don't know if don jr. went down the hallway and talked to his father at trump tower. he might have had meetings that had nothing to do with phone calls. >> you will be questioning michael cohen behind closed doors. what is the most important thing you would like to ask him? >> obviously, there is going to be a lot of classified information that i'm sure that
7:31 am
he will be sharing with us. i can't get into that. but my question, general questions to him will be about his interactions with the president. you know, we know that the discussions about the trump tower extended far beyond the january timeframe that he originally talked about in front of congress and he was convicted of lying. >> on the oversight side there is a question as to whether or not the oversight committee will have michael cohen appear before them next week for testimony. mark meadows and jim jordan are so interested in knowing about this that they sent a letter to the chairman of the committee asking him, let us know will you be interviewing michael cohen. can you answer that question? >> in my opinion, he will appear before the oversight committee in some form or fashion whether voluntary or otherwise.
7:32 am
>> is it factual that michael cohen is planning to appear before your committee next week? >> i don't know. we know that mr. cummings and his staff has been working with mr. cohen on trying to give assurances of safety because of certain threats made to him. >> let me ask you about overall because you are on the key mittimitty mitty -- committees. something struck me. of americans, 46% think that the democrats will go too far in investigating the president. look at the numbers. 46% and then 17% not far enough and then 34% about right. does that concern you? >> we have to be careful not to go after somebody but to surface the facts and the truth and let the chips fall where they may. as a former prosecutor we know you have to investigate before you prosecute. >> finally, 2020, because 640 days out is not too early to be
7:33 am
asking questions. >> are you starting the count down calendar? >> senator cory booker announcing a run this morning. who do you think so far that is in this has the best shot at beating donald trump? >> i don't know. i think donald trump looks pretty weak right now based on the latest polls and perhaps a lot of candidates would be able to defeat him from our side. however, i think the key thing is we have to set forth a vision for what the country will look like in 2024, 2028 and beyond. it has to include all americans. >> life long democrat until now howard schultz thinks your party has gone too far left and makes promises like medicare for all that he says are unaffordable for this country doompt you welcome that? >> i think that if mr. schultz wants to join the debate, he should. i just question whether doing so as an independent might play into donald trump's hands
7:34 am
because it would weaken -- >> why do you think he would pull more from democrats than republicans? what evidence do you see of that? >> we don't know for sure. however, in my humble opinion, i think that if he is trying to bring a progressive voice to the table as well it could complicate matters for a lot of people who are trying to do the same thing. but the more the merrier. we need people bringing their views to the table. >> it will be a crowded one, that's for sure. congressman, thank you. we appreciate it. president trump is calling the talks to prevent another government shutdown a waste of time. why? next. ♪ [peaceful acoustic guitar]

president trump says that he will not take no for an answer when it comes to money for his desired border wall. he signals he may plan to do if by partisan talks do not come up with the deal. >> i have set the stage for doing what i'm going to do. >> i'm going to wait until the 15th. i think it is a waste of time. >> joining us now, cnn political commentator and former director of legislative affairs at the white house. that is a really straight answer from the president. he thinks it is a waste of time.
7:40 am
what do you think? >> i think it is strong to call it a waste of time. i think when speaker pelosi said there would be zero wall funding we know this will head to a declarati declaration. >> of national emergency. >> and hopefully appropriations process will be able to move forward without that piece of it and get a bill signed to keep the rest of the government open. >> i know you don't love the idea of a national emergency declaration. that will be challenged in court. is that really a win for the president? >> i'm not saying it is a win because the reality is because a win would be for congress to work to fund it. i think the president feels strongly this is something needed for border security. i think it important for us to remember we have made this about trump's wall. in reality, the plan is something customs and border control career officials said they need to protect the border. >> can i ask you long term what this gets us?
7:41 am
let's say he declares national emergency in two weeks and takes about 7 billion, more than the 5.7 billion for the wall. that is not a full wall build. so that's going to build part of it, barriers, fence, what have you. then what? so for the next chunk another national emergency? the next chunk another national emergen emergency. >> he has not yet with a new democratically controlled congress. last year what the administration asked for was 1.6 billion and they got that in the appropriations process. >> the president changed his mind on that. to be fair you know republicans controlled congress for a long time prior to this moment. i wonder, just it's all about moving forward. it seems like neither side has an appetite for a government shutdown. they have calculated that. for republicans more broadly because this is a message the
7:42 am
president pushed hard and a lot of data that didn't work for him to the degree he wanted it to in the key races here. is this a good look for the republican party? >> it's a good look to say we are focussed on border security. i think it is also a concern for democrats if it comes across that they are not for border security. if democrats put forward a plan to say here is how we secure it without a wall they have a stronger leg to stand on. >> that has been their position. show me the actual plan to come forward. when we asked for more funding for judges they said no. when we asked for more funding for i.c.e. agents they said no. so up and down on multiple things, not just the wall, they have continued to deny funding. >> the president made clear that any offer from the democrats without wall funding is a nonstarter. so you have worked with the president and the white house.
7:43 am
do you think that is playing hard ball to get them to the table with more of what he wants or is he serious? >> i think he is very serious in believing the wall is essential to helping provide security. >> i have not met a republican or democrat who likes the idea of national emergency. the future would then be -- what weather department republicans response be to a democratic president who says gun violence, it's a national emergency. i'm going to do it. this is a dangerous precedent. >> it's not a good precedent. it is in statute. it is not something that is constitutional. it's not like -- some congress gave them after 9/11. congress can change that statute. congress feels it is setting a bad precedent they can say we are reclaiming this authority.
7:44 am
>> what is the impact do you think of this if at all on 2020 because we are far away? i ask you that because 49% of voters trust nancy pelosi more than the president on these issues. does the president you think find comfort in the fact that we are 640 days away from 2020? >> i think the president has a lot of things to run on and not just on border security but also the economy. you have been covering what the numbers were today. we have a new entrance into the race. the reality is that the president has created more jobs in newark than the former mayor did. i think that the president will have the ability to run on the economy very strongly. >> i don't know those newark numbers. >> in the seven years that cory booker was mayor according to the bureau of labor statistics newark lost 63,000 net jobs. they lost 63,000 net jobs over the course of his seven years. i think you have seen what the
