3:01 am
good morning to you. live from washington, i'm victor blackwell. >> i'm diane gallagher in for christi paul. welcome to "new day." >> the president is doing what he apologize feeding off the energy of his base and trying to regain traction after week of really bad headlines for the white house. >> president trump delivered the longest speech of his presidency, speaking to supporters and conservative activist at cpac. no topic at all was off the table and the president took shots at, well, just about everybody. sarah westwood is joining us to try to break down the two-hour speech. this was a wild one, even by president trump's standards. >> reporter: that's right. good morning, diane and victor. president trump emerging from that week of intacts from the
3:02 am
michael cohen testimony and to the lack of talks in vietnam with northeaste near north korea. it struck a familiar tone of grievance, blaming the media. for not giving his administration credit for what he saw as successes. he spent an extensive part of his speech going after special counsel robert mulen ar ener an sessions and talking congressional democrats for planning to investigate his business ties claiming they are only doing so because mueller will not find evidence of collusion in his forthcoming report. >> unfortunately, you put the wrong people in a couple of positions and they leave people for a long time that shouldn't be there and, all of a sudden, they are trying to take you out with [ bleep ], okay?
3:03 am
[ bleep ]. robert mueller never received a vote and neither did the person that pointed him and the attorney general says, i'm going to recuse myself. i said, why the hell didn't he tell me that before i put him in? if you setell a joke and you're sarcastic and live with millions of people in an arena and if you say something like, russia, please! if you can, get us hillary clinton's emails! please, russia, please! please! get us the emails! please!
3:04 am
>> reporter: as you can see there, president trump feeding off the energy from a very enthusiastic crowd. this was his third appearance at cpac since taking off and some people trace the launch of his political career back to the speech he delivered at cpac in 2011 so a event long friendly to president trump and we saw him there in his element. >> sarah westwood, thanks so much. joining us now to discuss is siraj hasmi and daniel lipman. longest speech of the presidency, he felt almost like 2016. trump is, obviously, in full campaign mode here. it was said that when the president needs to recharge, he
3:05 am
turns to his base. cpac is where he made his first political speech. is the president using this, this two-hour plus speech, to kind of recover from a bruising week of losses? >> more like a bruising couple of months. we had the longest government shutdown of u.s. history, in addition to the fact that trump declaring a national emergency to build a border wall coming into question with respect to the house democrats and house voting to reject that and a number of republicans, as well, coming to basically block them through a resolution. what is important to look at is that with respect to north korea, he actually did the sun a favor that walking away from a bad deal. the best thing that he could have done was walk away with no deal instead of a bad one. and with respect to his comments about michael cohen testimony, sure, those are things are going to probably hurt him in the long run, but, you had the cpac
3:06 am
speech is him in his element and he really does, i would say he does recharge with his. >> going on more than two hours. half of the nominees for best picture were not as long as that speech yesterday. daniel, his criticisms of jeff sessions. i mean, that is so 2018. jeff sessions is not the attorney general any more. he has a new attorney general, bill barr. why is he still going back and accusing and criticizing jeff sessions? there is a new guy in charge. >> yeah. he is nursing these old wounds he is never going to get over. you know? 20 years from now, if he is still alive, he will be criticizing jeff sessions. i think he sees sessions refusal to recuse himself as at the core of his problems in washington that there will would be no mueller investigation if jeff sessions was still attorney general and interfering in the investigation. let's think about it.
3:07 am
his criticism of sessions is ridiculous because would we want an attorney general who is a top surrogate for the president overseeing an investigation into the president? this is something that fox news would be going crazy over if the same thing happened in the obama presidency. >> you're saying "we" "guei gues the we of the country. he likely would. >> trump doesn't have a full understanding of the rules and regulations involving recusing yourself and sometimes he doesn't know -- he didn't expect to be elected president in the first place, according to all of the reporting. he thought this would be a great marketing opportunity. that's what michael cohen said this week. >> look. we talked about jeff sessions, mocking jeff sessions, attorney accent and whether many other people in his base have southern accents take offense to that but he took other shots at jerome
3:08 am
powell and mattis you mentioned this being 2018 and being 2016 again. this was taking shots at his own including talking about tariffs and national declaration of emergency. >> it's one of those things with president trump that if they are not in line with his agenda, they are fair game. >> but this was at cpac. >> doesn't matter. i mean, rewind back to 2016. he cancelled his cpac speech and trump was, by and large, the most hated figure at cpac. to see this unifying force behind trump in 2019, every time trump speaks, everybody wants to be there. this idea that cpac, you know, they wanted to reduce reliance on government, trump hasn't really done a whole lot to reduce the size of government. the trade war i should say has, obviously, kind of offset the
3:09 am
net benefit of the tax cut and jobs act. so, you know, there are a numbers things he wants to hit on but, you know, come the 2020 election, these are things he has to say he delivered on. >> does that mean seeing the reaction to trump at cpac waiting there two-hour plus speech, have we finally seen the finish of the republican party becoming the trump party? >> here is the thing. and this relies heavily on his campaign message of building the wall. the wall isn't built. this of trump loyalists who are actually holding the trump administration's feet to the fire will acknowledge that the wall has not been built. come 2020, they are going to have to, you know, demand answers from trump, why isn't the wall built? and it's fracturing his base and that is the big thing here. hillary clinton would have -- or democrats would have won in 2016 if hillary clinton was not on the ticket.
3:10 am
>> also, you know, he hasn't done enough to broaden his base. if all he does is focus on the anti-socialism message and what you heard yesterday at cpac, you're not going to win over suburban moms or other people who didn't like hillary clinton, didn't really like trump, but they wanted a fresh start and so, you know, he has basically just focused on his base the last couple of years and that is not enough to win re-election in 2020. and so that is going to be an interesting question to watch. does he and his political advisers try to get some of those persuadables and moderates or are they turned off the last couple of years in washington and, you know, want to basically turn the page? >> is the expectation that if you keep that base, then what? 35% or so. and vilify the democrat enough that will get you close enough? >> but there is a lot of, you know, democrats who, you know, they didn't show up in 2016 and
3:11 am
a lot of independents, they couldn't stand hillary clinton and so, basically, you know, she was the most hated democratic nominee in recent history. so if there is a kamala harris, how many people across the country wake up every morning and say i hate kamala? >> they don't know enough about her. >> to piggyback on. people thought hillary had it in the bag so if they hated hillary they didn't show up to vote and not repeat that in 2020. >> we expected michael cohen would be the headline of last week but likely the one of next week. "the washington post" is reporting overnight that lawmakers are now exploring possible pardon talks with cohen between the white house and cohen. cohen has said publicly he has not requested and would not accept the pardon from this white house. but "the post" reports with house intel that lawmakers want to know about potential talks. what would those talks mean for this equation that we are
3:12 am
seeing? what would potential talks between the white house and cohen change this conversation? how will they change it? >> they would basically be looking at behind the scenes what is trump doing he is not talking about? who is he offering pardons to and does that constitute obstruction of justice? if you're trying to pardon people without them getting convicted and also, you know, there was a time when michael cohen said he would take a bullet for trump and trump said stay strong, michael. so those periods of time before he flipped, prosecutors and, you know, congressional investigators, they are going to look at was that an abuse of power by the president? >> will those take a bullet for the president days are gone, those are well gone. >> clearly. siraj hasmi and daniel lippman, their you both for joining us.

3:18 am
closing in. >> president trump told cpac yesterday or tomorrow we will have 100% of the caliphate defeateded. ben wedeman is live from eastern syria. ben, first, tell us what is happening on the ground there now. >> reporter: basically, this is the last encampment occupied by isis. we are about three-quarters of a mile away from it and it is only about a half mile square. as you saw from that video last night, we have seen the same sort of thing happening today. that area has been pounded by coalition aircraft, by mortars, by artillery, just constantly. what we have seen on several occasions, actually, it appears that something has hit several munitions depots which has caused huge explosions behind
3:19 am
us. about 20 minutes ago, there were air strikes on that area as well. now what is interesting is we have been able to see through telephoto lenses, actually people walking among some of the tents back there. as you might be able to see, it's mostly tents. there are a few buildings in the background, but mostly tents and it's not at all clear how many people, how many fighter, how many civilians are still left inside. what we have seen is in the last month has been 15,000 people leaving not just the encampment, but the town we are in now. but estimates have always been low and the syrian democratic forces persistently surprised at how many people, how many fighters are still left inside. you mentioned president trump's comments yesterday that in his words perhaps today, perhaps tomorrow this operation will come to an end. well, we have been speaking with the people who really know what is going on. the commander on this rooftop
3:20 am
with the syrian democratic forces. he says maybe four or five more days before this battle finally comes to an end and with it, the state that called itself islamic. victor, diane? >> ben, you know, obviously, four or five more days looking at potentially here but what happens then? isis has not necessarily been eradicated. the islamic state has somehow fallen? >> yes. the territory will no longer exist. the pseudostate that was isis. but what continues to exist and what we have experienced firsthand is that many of the people who have left this area who spoke to from various parts of the world from canada, indonesia and elsewhere told us
3:21 am
they remain firm in their belief in the idea of the caliphate and the idea of an islamic state. this despite everything they have been through. and this is one of the concerns that people are leaving here, still convinced that the state that failed them is how a viable entity. not only that, there is the problem of isis, which began as a terrorist insurgency simply going back to a terrorist insurgency and in a part of syria and areas controlled by the u.s.-backed syrian forces, we have seen a variety of hit and run attacks, suits car bombings that continue to wreak havoc in areas that, at least in theory, have been liberated from isis. >> ben wedeman, thanks so much. >> stay safe, ben. when we come back, the president is facing more backlash over his comments from

3:26 am
after the hour now. in a largely unscripted speech at cpac that lasted more than two hours, president trump went after congressional democrats for the new investigations being launched into his finances and his dealings. >> yeah. which he claims is only being looked into because democrats have yet to find any collusion in the russia investigation. >> they don't have anything with russia. there is no collusion. so now they go and morph into let's inspect every deal he has ever done. we are going to go into his finances. we are going to check his deals. we are going to check -- these people are sick. >> yes. some other key issues the president hit on? he mocked the green new deal and
3:27 am
vowed to protect free speech on college campuses with an executive order and he took some jabs at the 2020 presidential candidate senator elizabeth warren. >> joining us is brett madowski and board member for president trump tony schaefer. brent, respond what you heard from the president there "these people are sick." >> we will ha ha when i heard t president insulting two hours insulting about everybody in the world i thought of jack nicholson said from chinatown, that is a win from a duck's ass. it was historic and presidential and he had a lot of free time on his hands. i will say we will be watching tonight the bush special on cnn which i look forward to. when bush 41 was vice president under reagan and then president, he would never and reagan would never in a million years talk
3:28 am
about love letters from kim jong-un, say that otto warmbier is a wonderful, wonderful person. he believes kim jong-un didn't have anything to do with his brutal sadistic murder and that he believes the former kgb boss running russia attacking measure that he believes him more than he believes the men and women of intelligence in measure are defending america. >> i don't believe for a minute that president trump doesn't think warmbier was not killed by the north korea. he is saying kim jong-un didn't know. big difference. yesterday, i didn't see anything more than president trump being president trump.
3:29 am
he is not like any other president. he laid out to his base what the issues are. i do agree completely regarding the russia issue. they keep moving the goalpost. i looked at this over and over as a national security adviser and expert and there is absolutely no evidence that trump campaign or president trump colluded. so in absence of any evidence of that, they continue now to say, oh, we want to look at this and that and all issues relateding to that. >> you don't have all of the evidence that mueller's investigative team has. you when you say you're looking at things, you don't have subpoena power. >> we are in washington and if they had anything it would have been leaking a long time ago. again, based on what we have seen. the cohen, i think, was symbolic by watching in the swamp. he turns on the the president and lays on what he knows, yet, not a thing related to collusion which is the central premise of
3:30 am
the entire investigation. >> what struck me in sort of the campaign to then discredit everything that was said by cohen to the panel under oath, the only thing anyone seems to be focused on is the fact that cohen did not implicate the president in russia. why is everything else wrong or untrue or he turned on him, and the only thing that anybody lashed on is true that would he wouldn't implicate the president? how could that be act accurate? how would could he be a liar? >> i think the only thing he wanted to go on is a baseline being verified. any liar will lay out a baseline that is truth and go there from. >> who determines what the baseline is? >> i think lenny davis gets to return that because he apparently prompted the whole thing. the lies when i'm talking about relate to things which are provingly false. they are asking now for investigations of what i think is provably false. regarding the whole russia
3:31 am
thing, i agree with you i think -- anything cohen has, mueller now has. and that is where i think there is a complete lack of issues relating to the russia narrative. he said flat out under oath there is no direct causal link. everything else. even debber wasserman schultz asked how do we prove what you just were asked? >> i think you're on the board to talk about things that are provenly false when the "the washington post" fact checker has this guy making thousands of statements that are either misleading or false and they go through the work of them being false. you brought up otto warmbier. i want to play first what the president said about otto warmbier. >> otto warmbier, i got to know his parents. i'm in a terrible position.
3:32 am
in one way, i have to negotiate and in the other way, i love mr. and mrs. warmbier and i love otto and it's a very, very delicate balance. he was a special young man and to see what happened was so bad, was so bad. and a lot of what i do with respect to north korea and any success that we hopefully, have, and we have had a lot -- we are given no credit. >> the president here says, you know, i love otto, i love his family, but i am negotiating i believe what kim is saying. it sounds a like there will be hell to pay for the death of sha khashog khashoggi. a strong way of vowing with the young man when it comes to hethe
3:33 am
issues. >> can you answer the question about president trump specifically? >> of course. president trump has to do difficult things regarding the situations and the saudis. president trump said he knows what happened in detail but he know the sawudis were response. i worked north korea when my friend was director of cia. i understand how the north koreans do things. north koreans are brutal. with that said i don't believe that un ordered warm bier to be sna assassinated or killed. warm bier had so much sodium that burned his brain. president trump has to negotiate something harder. there is the nuclear weapons and ending the war between north and south korea. . this is the balancing act he has to do. >> you don't believe that kim jong-un would have been aware?
3:34 am
it's an american prisoner. you don't think that -- you believe the president does not believe he would have been aware that kim jong-un -- >> you have to be very clear on the answer to that. with all due respect, he didn't say that un wasn't aware of warmwar warmbier of how he died. torturing people to death is a bad thing and i think he had some very competent people and i'd like to know what happened to the people un, if he did something to the people that tortured warmbier to death. a good question to ask. >> let me address that. i have to agree with what you just said with half of that. the half i disagree with otto was a detainee in a time when the north korea and american negotiations were on ice edge. no way the dictator of north
3:35 am
korea was not informed of what was happening. he was tortured in a north korean prison by people pursuing the policy of a north korean butcher. he was murdered by tactics that are regularly used. everyone knows that. what president trump should have done out of prism and honor it was a crime and outrage and it was wrong and immoral and evil and not exonerate him. i don't know one person i've met until the day i was born until today that used the word "trust kim jong-un. that is absurd. finally, quickly, when bush was president and reagan was president -- i was working for democratic leaders working with them on some things -- one thing that ronald reagan knew and george bush knew and jack kennedy knew, the way to negotiate with bad guys is not coddle them and praise them and make excuses for them. they see that as weakness and
3:36 am
they pounce. reagan had no fear calling the russians the evil empire and he was right about it but you how you got nuclear arms in the end and ended the cold war. when we do the cnn show tonight on the bush's i think that is going to be there. you don't ever say vladimir putin attacking america is right and american intelligence is wrong. you don't ever say that kim jong-un is right and that he didn't do it. that is an abomination no american president in the history of our country would have done that. i will pray for otto warmbier in heaven and pray for his family and pray that american leadership is better than what we just saw yesterday and in this whole situation. it is an outrage and that is not the way to negotiate. we saw what happens which is nothing when we coddle bad guys. >> now, the president, yesterday, said that there are members of congress who hate our country. >> right. >> hate our country. >> uh-huh. >> is that what you believe? and what is the basis for that?
3:37 am
>> well, you have people who are essentially making comments that are essentially against the constitution, against the rights of all americans. then, yeah, fundamentally those comments are un-american and i believe -- >> like what comment in specific? >> we have had a number of members talk about israeli americans and jewish americans in an insulting way. >> we also have a president who treated out the star of david -- >> yeah, the president has similar gapes. >> you ask a question -- >> you're on the campaign advisory committee so if you're going to criticize comments from congress, which is fair we should have you answer for the president's tweets during the campaign about hillary clinton and the star of david on a pile of cash. >> well, no doubt -- >> does that equal hating our country? >> no. it emphasizes who hillary clinton was taking money from. that was the point of the tweet.
3:38 am
>> witness star -- >> the explanation was at the time that that was a sheriff's badge. you're telling me that was a star of david. >> i'm answering your question. i'd have to go back and look at the exact tweet to comment on that tweet. >> you just commented on it and you said it was explanation hillary clinton was taking money. >> of money. >> hillary clinton was taking money from a number of groups. >> the star of david is the civil of the jewish religion. you're saying he tweed out, because hillary clinton was taking money. >> i'd have to go back and look at the tweet. if you want to show it to me, we can talk about it. during the campaign, the president emphasized on a number of instances where money was coming from going to hillary clinton's campaign. so my understanding is when these things happen, the president was trying to draw attention to something specifically relating to his message at the time. >> here is the tweet.
3:39 am
>> okay. >> okay. and? it's like -- the comment it's the most corrupt candidate ever. >> now, the explanation from the campaign was that in -- i'll tweet this out. that this was a sheriff's badge. you're telling me or at least what you said was -- >> no, i didn't understand. i thought you told me it had something to do with the jewish reference. >> this is the star of david. >> that is your opinion. >> no, that is exactly what the shape is. >> victor, can i make a quick point? i'll be quick. when anyone says, including the president, that any democrat hates america, he is telling a bald-faced lie for which he should be ashamed and for the man who just kissed vladimir putin saying he trusts the man attacking america more than the people defending america from the shake is one of the most shameful lies i can remember in the history of the american presidency. we love our country and don't need lectures from vladimir
3:40 am
putin's candidate. >> we have to wrap it there. thank you both for being with us. coming up next, heartbreak for a family of a sacramento man shot and killed by police. why sacramento's district attorney says she will not be filing charges against those officers. woman: this is your wake-up call. if you have moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis, month after month, 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. vo: humira can lower your ability to fight infections. serious and sometimes fatal infections including tuberculosis,

we are hearing heartbreaking and frustrating comments from the family of an armed man killing please. two police shot and killed stephone clark in his mother's backyard. >> now district attorney is laying out why no charges are
3:45 am
filed in that shooting. dan simon explains. >> reporter: we are in sacramento watching to see how the community reacts to the district attorney's decision. you can see some protesters have gathered here at the sacramento police department. for the most part, things have been peaceful. at one time we did some protesters burn some police flags. but, obviously, a shooting that the sacramento shooting. 22-year-old african-american male stephone clark that police thought was breaking into cars and followed him into his grandmother's backyard. in the body camera he was only hold ago cell phone. here is the district attorney. >> when we look at all of these facts and circumstances, we look at all of it, everything. we ask our question that we
3:46 am
started out with again and that question is was a crime committed? there is no question that a human being died. but when we look at the facts and the law and we follow our ethical responsibilities, the answer to that question is -- as a result, with he will not charge these officers with any criminal liability related to the shooting death of stephone clark. >> reporter: while that puts an end to the formal investigation, we should know the clark family has called a wrongful death lawsuit against the city of sacramento so this will continue in the legal arena at least for some time. in the meantime, we will continue to watch what happens in the hours and days ahead. when this happened a years ago you had a whole wave of protester and protesters shut down the sacramento kings basketball arena. will we see a repeat of
3:47 am
