, it won't do that. welp, someone should. just say "teach me more" into your voice remote and see how you can have an even better x1 experience. simple. easy. awesome. ten days after the summit shows north korea may be preparing a missile launch. power outages leave people vulnerable. the maduro government points the finger towards the united states. also this -- >> cities around the world celebrate international women's day, some even making it a public holiday. >> we are live from cnn world
headquarters in atlanta. we want to welcome our viewers here and around the world, i'm george howell. >> i'm natalie allen. cnn "newsroom" starts right now. and we begin with potentially troubling news out of north korea. >> that's right. just over a week after the trump-kim summit collapsed, new satellite imagery seems to show pyongyang is in a final stage for a launch. some mission to launch a satellite. it's still unclear, though. >> either way, it is problematic. the u.s. would see any launch as a betrayal from the summit between mr. trump and mr. kim. >> we are joined this hour in beijing, good to have with you us, will. let's start with the latest on
the satellite imagery. what does it show us? >> reporter: so, we are seeing activity in two different sites inside north korea. one a missile and rocket factory outside of pyongyang in sumdong, we know intergalactic missiles have been assembled. two analysts i have spoken with say activity at that factory' else to indicate, something was assembled. put on a railcar. >> that railcar has now left the station and possibly still headed, we don't know, to the satellite launch facility, which is now, according to analysts, although not confirmed by the u.s. government, fully operational after a flurry of work in the last few days. work that occurred post-the hanoi summit when president jong ill launched the summit. we know there was some activity beginning february 22nd.
it has picked up analysts say if recent days after that humiliating walkout by the united states that left the north koreans empty handed and having to go home with nothing. so if you put all the pieces together, they put together something at a lawn. fa -- launch factory to a launch site. it appears they are preparing for a space rocket or inter-continental ballistic rocket or a show for spy satellites to send a strong message to the is north korean state media take
a strong pivot if terms of their messaging of what happened in hanoi. in the lead-up it was flowing coverage. the north koreans were confident they were going to have a favorable deal signed after sit-down talks with kim jong-il and president trump. the north koreans say they didn't have a back-up plan when president trump left them without the deem. so there was this hour-long documentary painting the overall trip in very blowing terms. now this new state media cov coverage not only for the first time and this could be an attempt by the north koreans to shift their messaging internally for their own people to prepare them for what may lie ahead, which some analysts fear is a solicit to a more militaristic posture after the shift from vietnam. >> the imagery, the signage
changes in north korea when that pivot happens. so, of course, we will continue to monitor that. speaking on that, sanctions, will, what do sanctions mean in that nation? clearly north korea wants sanction relief. how big of an impact have sanctions had so far and how much pressure putting on the north korean leader and on people there? >> reporter: so the reports we are getting inside the country is sanctions are having a crippling effect. that's why it's so important for north koreans to get those lifted in hanoi. they were making the argument that sanctions are interfering with every day citizen's livelihood and perhaps lead to more grave implications to food supply and what not down the road. so from the north korean perspective, they need the united states to lift sanctions. >> that is an incentive to work with washington to try to strike a deem. they have to know if they do launch something, even if it is a space rocket, north korea claims is for scientific
purposes, not a missile. which will be obviously for military purposes a space rocket uses banned technology by the eun security technology that could hit the united states so north korea has to know that any kind of launch, rocket or missile would be highly provocative. however, there is a lot of pressure on kim jong-un to save face after being snubbed in a public way by president trump, particularly, canceling the working lunch when the table was already set. it was really -- it's hard to explain how big of an affront to kim jong-un's dignity that would be perceived inside north korea. it's not something they will soon forget. perhaps they need now to show the united states you know that kim jong-un remains in their view somebody who is strong and willing to stand up to president trump. >> will ripley with perspective and reporting. thank you. in the aftermath of the summit, vietnam may be felt in
the trade talks with china. >> sources close to the negotiations tell cnn chinese officials are no longer planning for president bito travel to the united states earlier this month for talks. he is apparently concerned president trump could walk out just like he did at the vehement summit. >> coin reportedly warning any deal to end the trade war to be all hammered out before he reaches the u.s. in the meantime, u.s. and chinese negotiators are still talking to one another. president trump is currently at his florida resort for the weekend. he left washington after another unprecedented week of turmoil. >> his excampaign manager paul manafort was sentenced to four years in prison for crimes, his long-time attorney went to capitol hill to testify under oath about his old boss. cnn's jim acosta has that. >> reporter: after shying away from the subject for days, president trump took aim at his former personal attorney,
michael cohen. accusing his one-time fixer of lying to congress. >> it's a stone cold lie. he's lied about a lot of things. when he lied about the pardon. that was really a lie. he knew all about pardons. his lawyers said they went to my lawyers and asked for pardons. >> president is referring to this comment he made last week under oath when he testified he had not sought a pardon from mr. trump even though his attorneys have just done that. >> i have never asked for nor would i accept a pardon from president trump. >> reporter: the president went one step further alleging cohen had sought a pardon personally, tweeting, bad fraudster michael cohen never asked for a pardon. his attorneys contradicted him. additionally, he directly asked me. i said no cohen tweeting back. let me remind you, today is international women's day, you may want to use the day to
apologize for your own lies to children mcdougal and steffi clifford. attacks on cohen could backfire pulling mr. trump into a perjury investigation from his attorney's remarks. >> it does seem like one of these whimsical last minute presidential inventions. >> reporter: contrary to war words with cohen for his sympathy for paul manafort who is headed to prison but may receive a pardon of his own as he stayed loyal to the president. >> i feel badly for paul manafort. i think it's been a very tough time for him. but if you notice, both his lawyer, they have a respected man and a highly respected judge. the judge said there was no collusion with russia. this had nothing to do with collusion. there was no collusion. it's a collusion hoax. it's a collusion witch hoax. >> reporter: just before the president viewed storm damage in
alabama, he indicated bill shine is resigning. still the president released a statement saying, we will miss shine in the white house. we look forward to working together on the 2020 presidential campaign, where he will be totally involved. shine a former fox news executive is the sixth person to take on the communications job raising questions about the president's commitment to hire the best people. >> we will get the best people in the world. we will use our smartest and our best. we're not using political hacks. >> reporter: the president may need a communication director to spin the latest numbers on the employment numbers. still the president said, there is nothing to worry about. >> the economy is very, very strong. if you look at the stockmarket over the last few months, it's been great. >> reporter: the democrat is looking to put democrats on the defensive looking for them to go soft on ilhan omar after the house approved a bill on hate
speech. >> the democrats have become an ain't israel party and anti-jewish party. >> reporter: the president overlooked his own record. >> you had some very good people in that group. you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. >> reporter: as for the departure of the communications director, a source close to the white house said there were concerns about the cozy relationship with fox news, where bill shine was recently a top executive. he was partly responsible in the dramatic reduction of press briefings with reporters. let's duk talk about the goings on at the white house. we have the head of the u.s. and americas program at chatham house think tank and leslie, thanks for being with us this morning. >> thank you. >> the president indicated a victory is somewhat over the manafort sentencing regarding no collusion. but we all know now manafort was
on trial for collusion. how in your opinion is the president handling the outcome of the manafort story? >> well, i mean i this i the manafort story is very interesting. the president's response is certainly revealing. i think there is this broader question also of the sentencing. that's what the public reaction and response has been to the length of the sentencing was fair or not and the perception the parameters were far shorter than the parameters recommended. >> many talking about light sentences handing down to a white chloroowe white collar, excuse me, crime. however, manafort will face another judge on different charges. he'll be sentenced again. so let's wait and see what happens there correct? >> it is wait and see. also the other thing is the concerns are about equity in the criminal justice system.
but "the washington post" reports today that if you actually look at white collar crimes, bank fraud, that manafort sentencing is actually within the range of normal so there is a broader question of equity. it's not really perhaps manafort specifically. it's just broader deeper injustice in the system. which i think is very important for people to take note of. >> you know what's also interesting that this judge who many have not liked the outcome and what the judge seemed to say about manafort almost acting like he liked him. i go es he could like him. but he's the judge, in talking about the question that manafort never seemed to show remorse. all that he's been through with this and he came to the court for the sentencing in a we'll care suffering from go out and
fought showing remorse. >> the optics have been difficult on a number of dimensions for a long time. i think this was symbolic a lot of things are happening that shouldn't be happening and without oversight and without remorse and reflection. so i think that was a very telling moment. >> i also want to talk about jim acosta's story there, the back and forth between cohen and the president on twitter. both pointing the finger at each other, accusations of lies and pardon or no pardon. it's interesting that these two were towing for so long and now they're playing this out in the public. this is the u.s. president, for all to read. what do you make of it? >> well, i mean, it is striking that we are where we are given that it was only last week during those cohen hearings that the president of the united states of america was meeting with the leader of north korea. yet the intense focus on cohen. it demonstrates that you know that back and forth is because
there is a real concern about that testimony and the effort now is to establish or to, or to discredit the witness. so there is a real question of the credibility of michael cohen and this is what we are seeing between cohen and trump. but more generally. and so there is a question of whether or not he is lying. there is also a question here of whether the president is planning to use pardons more generally and whether he has, at times, tried to use that in order to undermine the independence of the investigation. varies investigations that are going on. the back and forth is not surprisingly disturbing. but again, it all goes to this broader question and the broader politics surrounding the credibility of michael cohen. >> we always appreciate your insights. thank you. >> thank you. the u.s. president is slamming democrats after the house adopted a resolution condemning hatred and
intolerance, including anti-semitism and anti-muslim discrimination. >> and i thought that vote was a disgrace and so does everybody else if you get an honest answer. if you get an honest answer from politicians, they thought it was a disgrace. the democrats have become an anti-israel party. they have become an anti-jewish party and that's too bad. >> the resolution was written and was thought to what some called anti-semitic remarks by democratic house member ilhan omar. it was revised to include other forms of bigotry. 23 republicans voted against it arguing it did not do enough to condemn omar by fame. >> the freshman democrat is one of the first muslim women elected to the u.s. congress. shepp has been under fire even from fellow democrats for criticizing israeli government actions. she has also been the target of an anti-muslim bias. venezuela's national power

can country's leaders, the two blame each other. satellite image shows how widespread it was on the left. what the country was like before. on the right the afteratmosphere with almost all of venezuela in darkness. the government says it was a sabotage event caused by a u.s. cyber attack on a key power plant. that's what they say. but the opposition says the government has tollen money earmark earmarked. >> reporter: at first venezuelans can be for given for thinking it was one more power out annual. they happen here all the time. then it went on and on. before long, power was out in most of the country. one of the most widespread outages venezuela has ever suffered taking place at the same moment, the socialist government battles with the u.s.-backed opposition over who should run the country.
they say the blackout was caused by sabotage and the power will be back on soon. >> we are working to reestablish service as soon as possible and this event to create chaos and destabilization in our country at peace. and a remind you, this is an attack to the government. this stain tack to the people. >> reporter: throughout the long night, the venezuelans did the best they could with what they had. people in caracas hospital took turns keeping ventilators working to keep babies breathing. when we went to the hospital, nobody wanted to speak to us. opposition leader juan guaido says venezuelans need to make their anger known at a protest planned for saturday. >> translator: the whole nation is coming out to the streets. we will go back to the streets and not leave until we reach our goal. >> reporter: venezuelans took to the streets. you need electricity to pump
gas. this is the only station we have seen so far that has its own generator. so people have lined up all the way down the streets and all the way around the corner to pump gas in a country that has the world's greatest oil reserves. alejandra said she weighed three hours. >> this is madness. we live daily in the same circumstances, there are no services. there is no food. there is no medicine. this is a crazy nation. >> reporter: even with the lights out the message is clear for everyone to see. venezuela is falling apart. the newborn baby of the stalled isis bride has died. >> that according to kurdish red presses. begum left four years ago to join isis. now she says she wants to return home, even though she doesn't regret leaving. >> the u.s. revoked her citizenship. she was living in a syrian
refugee camp when she gave birth last month. in the meantime, the fate for the caliphate is grinding down. in the past 48 hours, 2600 people, including isis fight verse left the last village controlled by isis. >> the u.s.-backed syrian democratic forces have been fighting since president february to retake the enclave in eastern syria. of course target fight goes on, still, cnn is partnering with young people world wide for a day of action for modern day slavery. leading the charge, students around the world. we ask them what makes you feel free? here are some of the answers from students at the american community school in abu dhabi. >> what makes you feel free? >> what makes me feel free is that i can do something that people can relate to and fought feel bad about it. >> i feel free when no one has to tell me who i have to be and
when i can be myself. >> i feel free because i have family that loves me and that supports me, that i can come to school and learn and have friends. >> join us march 20. celebrate how fun my freedom day and to eradicate child slavery. >> we invite you to tell the world what makes you feel sfree? share your story using the #my freedom day. well, president trump made a stop in lee county, alabama on friday, back-to-back tornadoes devastated the area last week killing at least 23 people, injuring gins more. this weekend, 15 million people across the u.s. are under a severe storm threat. >> our meteorologist eric van dam is here to tell us about the storms. >> you know one of the reasons that tornado in lee county was so destructive is it was on the ground for over 70 miles.
>> that is unbelievable. >> an incredible amount of time. an incredible amount of distance, throwing debris and obviously causing fatalities as well. i want to summarize what happened last weekend. it's relevant what we are going to speak about. on average, we see about five tornado in the state of alabama, georgia and about six of the florida. just in one day alone last weekend, we saw 37 tornadoes across four states. in the entire month of march, we only see 78 tornadoes on average so we have almost gotten to 50% of our average tornado monthly frequency and it's fought even the middle of the month just yet, today the potential exists for more tornadoes, this time a little further to the north and west from the areas hit so hard last weekend near the border of alabama and georgia. so we will focus our attention across mississippi into western sections of tennessee, more on that? just one second. the current situation is interesting. because the radar here has
gotten extremely active. in fact, the national weather service issued a severe thunderstorm watch through northern texas, springfield, missouri. a large hail, possible damaging winds. tornado possible within this watchbox. but as we focus our attention later this afternoon and evening, we get to the day time heating of the middle of our day, baskally anywhere from northern minnesota to western tennessee and southwestern kentucky. that's where we expect this line of thunderstorms to produce strong potentially torned aic developing thunderstorms that has the potential to cause some damage as well. >> that line of storms will weaken, move further to the south and east and will focus our attention on sunday for southern georgia and southern alabama as well. by the way, lots of snow for places in new york. including indianapolis, up to a foot today. >> perfect. still ahead, president trump expresses sympathy for his former campaign chairman after he is sentenced to prison.
>> i feel very badly for paul manafort. i think it's been a very tough time for him. >> but a second sentencing next week could put manafort away for a very long time. also ahead, here cnn goes to what is described as bb country. you hear from the base staying loyal to embattled prime minister bengals then netanyahu. you.

north korea is preparing a if you launch of some type. the images show an uptick in activity at a rocket assembly facility at a launch site. this comes after the north korean summit broke down. the launch may be a message about those talks. in venezuela, opposing leaders there are calling for new protests in a few hours. this comes as the country recovers from the worst power outage in history. they say the united states launched a power attack on a power plant. the open six blames the government. a newborn baby, the so-called isis bride of shamima begum could weaken her case to return to the uk. she joined four years ago isis, the government revoked her citizenship. she has challenged that decision. the trump administration has suffered a setback in a legal fight over migrant families who
were separated at the border. a judge ruled a thousand more migrants can be included in a class action lawsuit to reunite families. this after it was revealed that more children were separated than previousing a knowledged. paul manafort, the president's disgraced former campaign chairman is already going to prison, for how long remains to be seen. his 47-month sentence for financial crimes triggered widespread criticism he got off too easy. >> that was just the beginning. he's already pleaded guilty in a second case and will finally learn his fate next week from a judge who might not be as lenient. for more about this, here is cnn sarah murray. >> reporter: critics say paul manafort got off easy, next week, he will come face-to-face with another judge who may take a harsher view of manafort's crime. judge amy jackson is set to sentence him, crimes that carry
a maximum sentence of ten years. in deciding whether to impose that maximum sentence, jackson could weigh the fact that manafort continued crimes after he was arrest and later lied to investigators when he was supposed to be cooperating. a federal judge in virginia sentenced manafort, president trump's former campaign chairman to nearly four years in prison, far less than the recommended sentence of 19 to 25 years. >> this sentence in my view failed to do justice for the verier is kwus crime that manafort has committed as well as his utter disrespect for the law. >> reporter: the comments he made after his client's sentencing further enflamed democrats. >> there is absolutely no evidence that paul manafort was involved with any collusion with any government official from russia. >> reporter: adam schiff, the democratic chairman of the house intelligence committee fired back via twitter saying the statement after an already
lenient sentence repeating the president's mantra of no collusion was no accident. it was a deliberate appeal for a pardon. in deciding manafort's, judge ts elliot called it excessive and claims manafort lived and otherwise blameless life. his resume called it a picture and he worked for dictators and a bid for human rights leader, like ferdinand marcos he tried to bolster after decades of his brutal rule. when it was light on cash. manafort turned to a russian oligarch and manafort never appeared to repay according to witness testimony at his trial. later he built close ties to the kremlin and stashed the millions he earned from foreign bank accounts. as a part of his illegal bargaining work, he designed and
painted president obama as anti-semitic. prosecutors reached back nearly a decade of tax fraud, hiding foreign bank accounts and defrauding banks, leading to his eight convictions if virginia. even though the maximum paul manafort can face in d.c. is ten years. it will be more difficult for manafort and his legal team to make the argument the judge cannot give him in sentence. unlike a judge in virginia he pleaded guilty. as a part of that plea agreement, heing a knowledge a number of crimes he was never charged with. he signed a document that prosecutors have saying he deserved 17-to-22 years in prison. sarah murray, cnn, washington. >> let's talk little more about that, presidential candidate corey booker is an unhappy democrat sarah murray mentioned. >> the senator of new york says a light sentence less than a presidential term would be given to a drug
attainment. african-americans and white americans use illegal drugs at exactly the same rate. study after study shows that. yet, african-americans are six times more likely to go to prison for illegal drug use. now you can come one a lot of difficult. it's 50% more, 20% more, six times more that shows us it's systemic bias that we have to deal with and while this case is unusual, as ken says because of the political nature of it is unfortunate all too often the
case people that have privilege, whether it's money, race, education, background, they winds up getting a better break. >> again van jones there saying that such a light sentence would not be given to a drug offender or minority offender. >> he played a role in getting a major u.s. prison reform bill passed late last year aimed at easing sentences for fawn violent offenders. that's right. we are following a story of a u.s. actor who says he was attacked in a racist anti-gay time is facing legal trouble. >> a grand jury indicted jussie smollett on multiple charges. 16 counts against jussie smollett. prosecutors say he told the story twice, first to a police officer and later to a detective, roughly the same story. he also went on "good morning america" and told the story as he saw it, he believed it.
he wanted it to be heard. what jussie smollett told police is he was attacked by two men, one white, who threw a noose over his net and shouted homophobic epithets. two people were arrested. those two people who turned out tab african-american men. they told police and a fwrnl that, in fact, jussie smollett had hired them to carry out this attack and cut them a check for $3500. the superintendent of chicago police, he says he thinks the reason jussie smollett did this is he wasn't getting paid enough money to appear on the "empire" tv show. he has since been written out of that show for the final two episodes of the final season. if he is convicted of all 16 counts. the sentencing guidelines are just for the one crime a class 4 felony, two-an-a-half years in
jail or up to three years probation. now, jussie smollett maintains his innocence. he heard from lawyers that call this prosecutorial overkill. it's a redundant and vindictive indictment and they say jussie adamantly maintains his innocence. nick wolf, cnn, los angeles. in israel, prime minister bengals then netanyahu is dealing with his demons. some criminal charges are looming. >> some people have called for him to step aside for the good of his country. he wants to win the april 9th election. and as mellissa bell reports, his loyal base says he could do it. >> reporter: his late arrivals did nothing to damp enpen his supporters. he may have flipped a second place in the polls nationally but this is likud country.
in 2014, they won 40% of the town here. a week after the attorney general recommended indicting netanyahu in three separate corruption investigations, most of those we spoke to think he will win his fifth term regardles regardless. >> i think it's charisma and the way he speak all over the world. >> reporter: who did you vote for? >> i like bb. >> reporter: our guide is a local radio journalist. >> a lot of people which are not living in the central of israel and tel aviv and jerusalem, have found a place and found someone who would speak their anger, who would speak to their misery. >> reporter: hello, how are you? >> reporter: inside the headquarters, the pile of signs was waist high, we are told,
defeated by activists who came prompted to get involved. they read netanyahu encouraging his vote, not in spite of his legal troubles. because of them. a message not only aimed at photos, also at the media, who netanyahu includes of leading a leftist wing conspiracy beside him. >> they say, okay in spite of that. >> so what the signs say is pay attention to what he is being accused of and get out and vote because he is under attack. >> we mention earlier, people do give the benefit of doubt. >> reporter: the town's deputy mayor and the local likud party chairman agrees that far from being put off, likud voters have been fired up by them. >> i want to tell you something. he's the moses of our time. this is the moses of israel. the more they torture him. the stronger he will become. that's written in the bible. the more they torture him, the
stronger he will become. >> reporter: yet, even here, netanyahu spoke in an auditorium that was only half full. to those that did turn up, however, their leader left them as convinced that his natural ability to connect with his faithful would see him through once again. melissa bell, cnn. >> britain's prime minister is fighting again to get her brexit deal passed and she's putting out a stark warning about what will happen if it doesn't get enough votes.

parliament face a choice, back the brexit deal, back it the uk will leave the european union. reject it and no one knows what will happen. we may not leave the eu for many months. we may leave without the protections the deal provides. we may never leave at all. >> so many unknowns for the people there. britain's prime minister urging parliament to approve her brexit deal next week. she says without it, the uk will be plunged into chaos. with 20 days left until it's due to leave the eu, there is not much time left to bargain with either europe or british lawmakers. from the big issue still blocking progress is more than ireland and what to do about the border there. a new poll shows how disillusioned northern ireland is without the whole process. >> reporter: the people of northern ireland are deeply disappointed with the way brexit
is going. banner headlines in the "irish times" reveal startling poll numbers. the border we republic to the south is one of the big issues. two-thirds of the 536 people are asked face-to-face say the uk should stay in the eu single market to ensure no hard border, which is not what prime minister teresa may plans. this poll also an effective repudiation of may's northern irish allies, the dup, who prop up her slender ma majority and have voted against her brexit plan. two-thirds of those asked said they have done a bad job representing northern ireland. a sentiment we found among unionist voters. >> to me, in fact, one of the biggest potential threats to the union is the dup and their stance. >> reporter: really? >> there is a middle ground in ireland that, quite frankly, has
