2:00 am
that was a sign of how desperate it was. every person looking for a job had to beat out at least six other people to get the job. that was really hard. today, things are a lot better. >> one the president will like. "early start" continues right now with the latest congressional compromise. i'm not happy about it. it's not doing the trick. >> will president trump sign the border deal, find another way to pay for his wall? this appears to be an absolute tragic case of friendly fire. >> a new york city police detective shot and killed in a chaotic armed robbery. it will give everybody an opportunity to go on record. >> a senate vote would force democrats to take a stand on their ambitious green new deal. good morning, everyone. welcome to "early start." i'm dave briggs. >> and i'm christine romans.
2:01 am
it's exactly 5:00 a.m. on wednesday, february 13th. happy birthday, mom. >> it really? >> my daughter's as well in two days. >> republicans are opening pushing for president trump to openly accept the border deal they negotiated. the president hinted he is leaning that way. >> i don't think you're going to see a shutdown. i wouldn't want to go to it now. if you do have it, it's the democrats fault. and i accepted the first one and i'm proud of what we've accomplished. >> so what exactly did the president accomplish? he originally wanted $5.7 billion for 234 miles of border barriers. last december, he turned down democrats offer of $1.6 billion for 65 miles of barrier. now republicans are urging him to take even less, $1.35 billion for 55 miles. but the president still has a
2:02 am
few cards up his sleeve in congressional actions. fund to barrier. here's jim acosta. >> reporter: christine, the president says he's not a big fan from capitol hill to provide border fencing. but it appears the president is going to sign this agreement. i talked a white house official who said the president although aides, and top aides are going over what is exactly over this bipartisan agreement. as the president was meeting with his cabinet earlier in the day, he registered his complaints about this agreement. here's what he had to say. >> i have to study it, i'm not anticipate happy about it. it's not doing the trick. i'm adding things to it, and when you add whatever i have to add, it's all going to happen where we're going to build a beautiful, big strong wall that's not going to let criminals and traffickers, and drug dealers and drugs into our
2:03 am
country. >> and the president is getting far less than what he originally wanted from the wall. he wanted something like $5.7 billion. the commit on the bipartisan the bipartisan committee on the bill have only come back with something like $1.4 billion, that's a lot less than he expected. but the president and his advisers are now looking at other areas of the administration to continue to draw money to build the wall. but some of that has legal challenges. but democrats say if the president goes that route and declares a national emergency, they'll take him to court. christine and dave. >> jim acosta, thank you. the prospect of another shutdown has lawmakers on both sides urging the president to get on board with the deal. >> please, mr. president, no one got everything they wanted in this bill, but sign it and don't cause a shutdown. >> i hope he signs the bill. and check it. i think he ought to feel free to use whatever tools he can legally use to enhance his
2:04 am
efforts to secure the borders. >> the white house considering several executive actions to find the money to fund the wall. they could take money earmarked for military construction. but that would declare a national emergency declaration. it could take money from the army corps civil works funds. that would come at the expense of repairs. and that would also require a national emergency. and they could take pentagon counternarcotics funds and treasury funds. and fox news' sean hannity blasting the border compromise bill. >> the so-called compromise is characteristic of the d.c. sewer and swamp. and the amount of safety for the american is pathetic. the president would need to declare a national emergency. this is the time. that is a necessity. and the president, i think i know him pretty well, telegraphed that very thing just today. >> ann coulter tweeting this,
2:05 am
trump talks on a good game on the border wall but it's increasingly clear he's afraid to fight for it. call this his yellow new deal. here's what the wall street general editorial board thinks, they write, the restrictionist talk show right is trashing the deal and mr. trump's grousing tuesday may reflect that criticism. but these are the same critics who have coaxed mr. trump to crash into one immigration dead end after another. they seem to think mr. trump's duty is to fail repeatedly in the service of the politically impossible. the next time they give good advice will be the first time. >> ouch. the senator richard burr insisting hi goodwill his panel may have had for the president's former lawyer is now gone. after cohen postponed a hearing tuesday morning. >> he's already stepped a stone, being in washington today,
2:06 am
because of an illness on twitter, a reporter reported he was having a wild night saturday night out in new york with five buddies. he didn't seem to have any physical limitations, and he was out with his wife last night. well, i would prefer to get him before he goes to prison, but, you know, the way he's positioning himself, not coming to the committee, we may help him go to prison. >> cohen's lawyer lony davis saying despite the statement, mr. cohen continues to suffer from severe post shoulder surgery. pain medication that mr. cohen is taking made it impossible for him to testify this week. we believe that mr. burr should appreciate that it's possible for mr. cohen to be in pain and still have dinner in a restaurant. well, that photo that you're talking about, that photo of mr. cohen greeting friends and dining at the upscale restaurant is not helping his cause with the senate intel chairman.
2:07 am
senate majority leader mitch mcconnell is planning to force democrats to take a stand on sweepi sweeping climate change on economic overhaul. saying he will propose a bill co-authored by representative alexandria ocasio-cortez and senator ed markey. >> it will give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the green new deal. >> smirk, smirk. republicans aim to make the green new deal a key 2020 campaign issue, painting it as costly, unworkable socialism. the proposal calls for a complete shift away from fossil fuels and throws in a variety of social justice initiatives. most democrats in the senate who are running or thinking of running for president support the initiatives to varying degrees. senator amy klobuchar who just declared said she will co-sponsor the green new deal. >> i'm in favor of it simply because i see it as a framework
2:08 am
to jump-start a discussion. i don't see it as something that we can get rid of all of these industries or do this in a few years. that doesn't make sense storm. or reduce air travel. but what does make sense to me is to start doing concrete things and put some aspirations out there on climate change. >> some of them more cautious like ohio's sherrod brown who said tuesday he supports a green new deal. says he hasn't decided how he would vote on this measure. a grim financial mile phone for america, as a candidate president trump, donald trump promised to get rid of the national debt. telling "the washington post" in 2016ly could make the u.s. debt-free in eight years. today, it's at a record high. the u.s. national debt is above $22 trillion for the first time. the national debt has been rising since the 2008 financial crisis when congress and obama administration approved stimulus to prop up a collapsing american
2:09 am
economy. the debt began to level off but then it jumped after his tax cuts took effect and the lower corporate tax rate cut into treasury revenues. less money coming in. without higher taxes, massive spending cuts or an explosion in economic growth, the budget office predicts public debt will ri rise. breaking overnight, a shooting leaves one new york city police officer dead and another wounded in what police officials say looks like a tragic case of friendly fire. officers were responding to a robbery call at a cell phone store in queens last night. within two minutes they opened fire on a 27-year-old suspect. audio from the chaotic scene captured on police radios. you can hear the wounded officer letting dispatch know he's been hit. we'll get that audio for you
2:10 am

2:17 am
responded to president trump's attacks on twitter. here's what she told cnn. >> it's a case by case, you certainly don't want to go down every rabbit hole with him. in my case, i welcome being called the snow woman. i thought it was a pretty cool title myself. so, i was more than glad to respond. i think those decisions have to be made on a strategic basis because he wants to dominate every news story. he wants to get himself in news stories and that's just strategy. >> klobuchar also responded yesterday to a report that former senate democratic leader harry reid rebuked her for mistreating her staff. she tells fox news neither she nor reid recalled that conversation. >> yes, i can be a tough boss and push people. that's obvious. but that's because i have high expectations of myself. i have high expectations of those that work with me, and i have high expectations for our country. >> this programming note, amy klobuchar will take part in a cnn town hall next monday in new

2:32 am
i wouldn't want to go to that now. if you do have it, it's the democrats' fault. and i accepted the first one, and i'm proud of what we've accomplished. >> so what exactly did the president accomplish? he originally wanted $5.7 billion for 230 miles of border barriers. last december, he turned down democrats' offer of $1.6 billion for 65 miles of barrier. and now republicans are urging him to take even less, $1.375 billion for 55 miles. even if the president takes that deal, he still has a few cards up his sleeve in the form of exec i have actions to fund barrier construction without congressional appropriations. cnn's jim acosta has more from the white house. >> reporter: christine and dave, president trump said he's not a big fan of this bipartisan agreement coming from capitol hill to provide support on border fencing. but it appears that the president is going to sign the agreement. i talked to a white house
2:33 am
official who said the president is likely to sign the deal, although aides stress, top white house aides are still going over what is inside this bipartisan agreement. but the president registered his complaints about this agreement. here's what he had to say. >> i have to study it. i'm not happy about it, it's not doing the trick. but i'm adding things to it. and when you add whatever i have to add, it's all going to happen where we're going to build a beautiful, big strong wail that's not going to let criminals, traffickers and drug dealers into our country. >> and the president is getting far less than what he originally wanted from the wall at the beginning of this. he want the $5.7 billion on the bipartisan committee on the security bill, they've only come back with something like $1.4 billion. that's a lot less than he expected. but the president and his advisers are now looking at other areas of the administration where they could
2:34 am
draw money to continue building the wall. but to this point, some of that could be subject to legal challenges. and democrats say if the president goes that route and declares a national emergency. they'll take him to court. christine and dave. >> jim acosta, thank you for that. lawmakers on both side urging president trump to get on board with the deal. >> please, mr. president, no one got everything they wanted in this bill. but sign it and don't cause a shutdown. >> i hope he signs the bill. and check it, i think he ought to feel free to use whatever tools he can legally use to enhance his effort to secure the borders. >> so, what are those tools? they could take money earmarked for military construction. that would require a national emergency declaration. they could take money from the army corps civil workings fund. that would come at the expense of natural disaster affairs. and pentagon anti-narcotics funds and treasury funds. fox news host and frequent
2:35 am
supporter sean hannity blasted the compromise deal. >> the so-called compromise characteristic of the d.c. and swamp. the president would need to declare a national emergency. this is the time. that is a necessity. and the president, i think i know him pretty well, telegraphed that very thing just today. >> speaking directly to the president. here's what "the wall street journal" editorial board thinks of conservative tv's influence on this president. they write, quote, the restrictionist talk show right is trashing the deal and mr. trump's grousing tuesday may reflect that criticism. but these are the same critics who have coaxed mr. trump to crash into unimmigration dead end after another. they seem to think that mr. trump's duty is to fail repeatedly in the service of the politically impossible. the next time they give good advice will be the first time. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell planning to force democrats to take a public stand
2:36 am
on sweep overhaul on climate change. he reported a green new deal, co-authored for alexandria ocasio-cortez and senator ed markey. >> it will give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the green new deal. >> republicans aim to make the green new deal a key 2020 campaign issue, painting it as costly, unworkable socialism, a liberal takeover of the american economy. the proposal calls for no more fossil fuels in ten years. guaranteed jobs for health care, support of unions. >> climate security guaranteed for all americans. let's bring in cnn politics digital reporter zach wolf. good to see you, sir. >> good morning. >> all of the candidates on the left are basically signing on with this, with the extension of sherrod brown from ohio.
2:37 am
amy klobuchar is said to be occupying the moderate lane. here's what she said about the green new deal. >> i'm in favor of it simply because i see it as a framework to jump-start a discussion. i don't see it as something that we can get rid of all of these industries, or do this in a few years, that doesn't make sense to me. or reduce air travel. but what does make sense to me is to start doing concrete things and put some aspirations out there on climate change. >> so mental mentitch mcconnell mentioned there wants to get everybody on record. is that a shrewd move and how much will democrats regret this report of the green new deal? >> i think it's a completely shrewd deal. you saw the smirk on his face announcing it. that's as animated as mitch mcconnell gets. that's him giddy, i think, at the prospect of getting all of these people on board. i think the question is whether or not this is transmitted to the public as an actual list of
2:38 am
policy priorities, a list of ideas, things that some day we could do or things that democrat it's are actively trying to pursue. you heard amy klobuchar. i'm not sure how she feels about this thing. she said she's going to vote for it and not going to support it as a means of policy. she's clearly trying to have it both ways to placate the left of the party who likes the elements. and also the realism aspect here. this would completely remake american society, if you implemented everything that's mentioned in this. >> yeah. >> and that's probably not going to happen. >> no, and someone like sherrod brown as you pointed out, he's not sure where he would stand on something like this. is there a risk for maybe democrats to overplay their hand on some of these progressive initiatives? i mean, if you kind of rile up the republican base, even people who might not support donald trump and you say, look, socialism. and some of these unrealistic
2:39 am
ideas? >> if donald trump is able to make democrats seem like the radicals in the race, i think that's a big problem for them. >> yes. >> whether he's able to do that i think is very much up for debate. and, you know, there's a lot of time between now and then. but if we're at a place where he seems like the more moderate voice on policy, compared to democrats, i think that's probably not where democrats want to be. >> just look back to what they did with death panels and how they ran against obamacare to see where this is headed. so, this is an opening for perhaps someone like joe biden or sherrod brown or the independent and ceo of starbucks, howard schultz. who spoke to poppy harlow on what he thinks is the void in american politics. listen. >> and i believe that the majority of americans feel like i do, the far right and the far left does not represent them. and they're looking for a home. >> okay. isn't he right? and why is there so much
2:40 am
friendly fire towards sherrod brown at this point, still, what, 355 days from the iowa caucus? >> you know, i think he is right that a lot of americans are sort of frustrated by the far right and they're frustrated by the far left. the problem is the people on the far right and the far left are those who really care about politics. >> yeah. >> they're the ones that work in party primaries and stuff like that. the question, i think, is whether howard schultz can gin up any excitement. we haven't seen that yet. we haven't seen any movement coalesce behind him. it's early, i guess. but there certainly hasn't been this groundwe swell, takes to t treats saying you're our guy. >> until we get to the iowa caucuses. everything can change and will on a dime. let's talk about the tentative border deal that mitch mcconnell is encouraging the president to sign and look for other ways, if
2:41 am
need be, to pay for rest of it. that's the rest, if he accepts this, it's him accepting less money than he could have had from democrats two months ago, right? >> before the shutdown. >> here's what ann coulter tweeted on this. trump talks a good game on the border wall but it's increasingly clear he's afraid to fight for it. call this his yellow new deal. how much pressure is the president under, from the voices that we know he does listen to, on this border wall? >> voices that he clearly cares about, you know, people like sean hannity, fox news, that's sort of -- you know, the ones that he follows on these things. and i think you can see him, even if he accepts this, he can still, you know, go around it and do a national emergency. and have it both ways, essentially there. he needs something, i think he wants something. the most important thing for him is to declare victory. there's not much for him to declare victory with in this
2:42 am
