tv   CNN Newsroom With Ana Cabrera  CNN  March 9, 2019 1:00pm-2:00pm PST

1:00 pm
a real job. thank you very much. george w. was very much involved in the campaign. almost there to make sure that the campaign was run the way his father wanted it to be run. he's become his father's surrogate, most trusted adviser. his father really sees his political chops during the course of the campaign. george w. bush makes a real contribution. >> we sold our house to come up to washington to be in the campaign. which has been by the way, for a political junkie, a fantastic experience to be close to my dad during this. >> what might the future in big league politics look like for me. top of the hour, you're live in the cnn newsroom, i'm anna
1:01 pm
cabrera in new york, great to have you with us. very busy saturday on the campaign trail, this weekend is winding through the south by southwest festival in texas. republicans and independents all in a bid to boot president trump from the white house. texas isn't the only state seeing a lot of 2020 action this weekend. they're speaking out on everything, talking about the hot button issues of the day and what's become a very crowded 2020 field. >> our job is to create an economy and a government that works for all of us. the children, the elderly, the working people of this country. and not just the 1%.
1:02 pm
>> for too long, frankly in our country, we have not had these honest discussions about race. we just have not. >> there are a number of great -- there really are. let the best woman win. >> a lot of buzz around beto o'rourke today who we didn't hear in that sound byte. did he give any future runs about his campaign? >> there was a q & a, a few questions came up, and i'd say maybe the third question from somebody in the audience who said, when will you announce a presidential bid. there was a little bit of a laughter and a lean in.
1:03 pm
he sort of deflected. he chose to answer that by highlighting other local races in other candidates here in texas. another opportunity for beto o'rourke to publicly announce what his decision is when it comes to 2020. and he wasn't very direct about it. he did not give a yes or a no. let's back up a little bit. this comes after the last day of february to announce he had made a decision as to his political future. and then i -- within an hour or so, i talked to him myself. he said an announcement would come soon. our sources are telling us, that is any day now. what it will look like and what he will say still remains unclear, as far as asking his aids and those in his inner circle what that will be. we're going to have to wait and see. it's interesting he's here at south by southwest. a festival that gained
1:04 pm
attention, because of his focus on culture and entertainment. so you do see a lot of these candidates trying to talk to and get the attention of a very young and engaged audience here that has something to say when it comes to politics. >> south by southwest made a name for itself because of its focus on culture and entertainment how did it become a critical stop for presidential hopefuls? >> because they're trying to tap into that audience. these are young and engaged people who are coming out to see many of them. documentaries about the issues you're hearing on the campaign trail. about immigration. about health care. so when it comes to those conversati conversations, those documentaries, those sessions, there are a lot of folks when t its to candidates anyway, wanting to make sure that they tap that audience as a key
1:05 pm
demographic there that could really help them in standing out in what is already a crowded field. you're seeing them do that in different ways. beto o'rourke, while he's not announced anything. he's been e-mailing people to talk about those issues. he hasn't been active on social media. you're seeing different ways of doing that. for some of the candidates this is the way to reach that audience here in austin. >> thank you. i want to bring in congressional reporter for the washington post and new york times white house correspondent michael scheerer, amy klobuchar was at south by southwest today. she was asked about her minnesota colleague. her comments about lawmakers who support israel, let's watch. >> i do not agree with what
1:06 pm
other representatives said there i believe you can be true to your country. and advocate for another country. whether it is israel or canada or ethiopia. you -- there are many americans that feel strongly that they love their own country. but they advocate for their own ancestry, or maybe it is another country that they care a lot about. so i'm like -- what she said there. >> we watched this debate among democrats largely over what many considered anti-semitic comments get sidetracked in the house this week, is this going to become a bigger issue on the presidential campaign trail? >> i think potentially. it depends on a few things. israel, palestinian policy is going to be an issue on the campaign trail because the democratic party is talking about it in ways they haven't as much in years past. you've seen when the senate has
1:07 pm
had votes, the the deal with middle east policy. a split between democrats who are sticking to a general idea of a particular part of the world. these are all controversial issues now in the democratic party. how often they're going to have to talk about it in public like this. depends on how much noise these leaders keep making. she's treading into areas where there's these dog whistle phrases that are being attached to anti-semitic. if she learns how to abandon those and keep making her point, she's going to keep raising them, it seems like the democratic party is going to have to address this issue as congresswoman omar and others who defend her and share her policy views keep raising it. the republicans are not going to
1:08 pm
let an opportunity go to force democrats to have to account for this. the democrats want to be talking about a much broader issue of questions of racism, and hatred, that's what you saw play out as you saw the party talk about anti-semitism just this week. >> democrats would rather be talking about president trump's tax taxes. >> we saw president trump seize on this infighting. here's how he tried to spin it. >> i thought yesterday's vote by the house was disgraceful because it's become -- the democrats have become an anti-israel party. they've become an anti-jewish party. >> i can't just leave it there, i want to remind people what president trump has said during his apac speech. >> is there anybody that doesn't renegotiate deals in this room. i want to renege -- this room.
1:09 pm
perhaps more than every room i've ever spoken to. maybe more. he raised $125 million. which means he's controlled totally, totally controlled by the people that gave him the money. that's why you don't want to give me money, but that's okay. you want to control your own politician, that's fine. >> that on top of president trump's smartsville comments that there are good people on both sides of a neo-nazi rally -- steve king retweeted, white nationalists have called for the elimination of jews. why would the president go there on this one? >> why does he do so much of what he does? it's the ultimate hutzpa that he would put himself on a higher moral plane than the democrats.
1:10 pm
the democrats have diverted and distracted themselves on this issue. democrats tend to be more public when they address their inner -- kind of inside the party disputes. republicans do a better job of shoving it under the rug and not dealing with it. look how they didn't deal with steve king and his racist comments for many years, and only dealt with it when they were pushed to do so. the democratic party is going to hope they can move past this, get the focus on donald trump and the democratic 2020 contenders don't want to be dragged back into a washington fight when they want to be outside of washington and talking to people and drawing the distinction between themselves and the kind of political warfare in washington. that's the last thing the contenders want to have to do. >> let's talk more about the democratic 2020 contenders and perhaps everyone is waiting on
1:11 pm
for a final answer. joe biden. michael, your newspaper reports, biden is 95% committed to running according to sources familiar with the discussions. what's stopping him? >>. >> i think the first major hurdle that biden had to get over with is a family hurdle. we're told that's now past, his children, his wife. everyone in the family wants him to run. that was probably the biggest thing he needed to get past. there are still questions. can he raise the kind of money that some of these younger politicians who have tapped into the real motivated and passionate liberal base of the party. they're getting all of these small dollar donors, there's some concern among the people around mr. biden that he'd have to do it the old fashioned way there wouldn't be that same kind
1:12 pm
of social media fervor. he has to decide whether he thinks that this is the right time for joe biden, right? there is an argument that he can appeal to people in ohio, pennsylvania and michigan, there's another argument that says what the democratic party is looking for is a real younger -- more liberal standard bearer to contrast with president trump. he's got to decide ultimately, does it many make sense for him to try. >> biden is comfortably atop the most recent polls. he enjoys an approval rating of 80% among democrats. a lot of that is simply because he was barack obama's vice president and obama is so popular with democrats. do you think that's what it is. >> biden has this folk see per sewn know that everyone knows.
1:13 pm
he's a states man and an older gentleman that was in the white house for that long. people are familiar with him. he's the subject of many memes. everyone has a warm spot for biden. is he the person you want at the top of the ticket right now. the party's making a very big push to let people remember the fact that they are more diverse, they are younger, they have more women in their ranks. it doesn't mean their candidate for 2020 has to look like all of those things. you can't have all those things in one person. it means biden is going back a generation when the party is talking about forward thinking. what's the future of the party going to look like, who they will be. >> they have to find a way to marry those two things. get over the anita hill push back if he becomes somebody that's a front-runner. that's going to be a process for them. but he comes in with the name recognition and with the legacy,
1:14 pm
and i think at this stage, this early, when there's so many people throwing their hat in the ring, that's going to rise to the top if if he runs. >> really quickly, i think that popularity like that vanishes quickly when you get into the arena. hillary clinton was incredibly popular as secretary of state, and you can see what happened. once you get into the arena, that kind of popularity fades quickly, that's part of the danger for him. >> good to have both of you with us, thank you. we're live from south by southwest in austin, texas. three cnn presidential town halls back to back this weekend. john delaney at 7:00, tulsi gabbert at 8:00. protesters clashing in the streets of caracas as the crisis in venezuela continues to worsen. cnn takes you there. plus -- >> are you concerned that if you
1:15 pm
anger president trump when there's a disaster here like a mudslide or wildfires, that he will be thrifty on the emergency fund? >> how california is taking on president trump. or atopic dermatitis... ...you feel like you're itching all the time. and you never know how your skin will look. because deep within your skin... ...an overly sensitive immune system... ...could be the cause. so help heal your skin from within. with dupixent. dupixent is not a steroid,... ...and it continuously treats your eczema... ...even when you can't see it. at 16 weeks, nearly four times more patients taking dupixent saw clear or almost clear skin compared to those not taking it. ...and patients saw a significant reduction in itch. do not use if you are allergic to dupixent. serious allergic reactions can occur, including anaphylaxis, a severe reaction.
1:16 pm
tell your doctor if you have new or worsening eye problems, including eye pain or changes in vision. if you are taking asthma medicines, do not change or stop your asthma medicine without talking to your doctor. help heal your skin from within. ask your eczema specialist about dupixent.

1:19 pm
this is venezuela, a country dealing with two dire emergencies this weekend. one on the streets for people enraged at the government of nicholas maduro. clashing with riot police and maduro supporters. right now, this is more urgent. nearly the entire country is without electricity. a blackout that suddenly plunged venezuela into darkness on thursday. many people are blaming the government for this blackout, claiming it is incompetent and
1:20 pm
corrupt. >> the u.s. sabotaged the power outage. people are getting very worried now about food safety and hospital patients if the electricity isn't restored soon. overseas today, people who watch north korea for a living, believe the country is getting ready to launch something. a spike in activity at a launch facility is showing up in new satellite imagery. president trump telling reporters he would be very disappointed if north korean leader jim jong eun restarts his missile testing program. >> the house of representatives this week passed a resolution to formally and officially condemn hatred and intolerance aimed at jews, muslims, ethnic minorities and homosexuals. it doesn't wipe out the simmering divisions within the democratic party. and the underlying concerns that
1:21 pm
sparked the resolution in the first place. this all started with a lawmaker from minnesota. making comments that offended a lot of people. comments viewed as anti-semitic. and her criticism of pro israel politicians and lobbying groups. she's one of three muslims you serving in the u.s. congress right now. cnn.com opinion contributor dean obadala. there are a lot of people upset about how this ended up. this could have been a slam dunk. how did this get so muddled? was it politics? did politics get in the way, perhaps? >> i think. i think fear often times gets in the way of having honest conversations, it's hard to have
1:22 pm
strict honest conversations with one another about hard challenging issues. we need to be addressing that. i'm glad they were able to bring a resolution. there should have been -- everybody in congress should have been able to vote for that resolution. the 23 representatives weren't able to vote for it, that to me is shameful. we should have been able to have everyone stand up together and denounce hatred, bigotry, racism. every american should be able to say that without pause. >> here is what 23 who voted against this resolution explained. how he explained himself. he says without naming the offender that chastised the empty gesture. i voted no to the watered down legislation. it's time to take a stand against these watered down resolutions. >> you can make a point we'll
1:23 pm
have a second resolution down the road. the idea of anti-semitism or anti-muslim bigotry. to me it's machinations -- i hope we can go forward. i hope we have a moment where we can go forward. second, about the very issue, omar really wanted to talk about is the palestinian/israeli conflict. the new trump administration, he's cut hundreds of millions of dollars in grant aide that are a lifeline for children going to school, the pain inflicted by this administration gets almost no coverage whatsoever. that's what i'd like to move to at some point. >> that became why this was a divisive issue. when it came back to con temming something. one of the criticisms about
1:24 pm
doing a broadbrush stroke it waters down to use the republicans word that i had just read, that it waters down maybe the impact of denouncing anti-semiti anti-semitism, do you see it that way? >> no, i don't. we have right now in our nation a rise in anti-semitism that needs to be denounced. islam phobia, homophobia, misogyny. we need to talk about what's going on in our nation about these kinds of issues that are adding fuel to the fire. those are the questions we need, and we need moral loadership, and i think every representative has to recognize the weight of their language. they're not just political leaders, they are role models for everyone in our nation, unfortunately for the last two years, we've had horrific things being said, and it hasn't been denounced. the democrats are coming together to say, enough is
1:25 pm
enough it's time for that. i think better to look -- we're all in this together. we have to remember, we are in this together. our divided nation will beapart. >> how do you build the bridge? i want you both to hear this. thomas friedman covers the middle east for the new york times. listen to what he says. >> she was perfectly poised to be a bridge builder, between muslims and jews. and rather than come to washington, and be a bridge builder, she's come to be a bridge destroyer. >> dean, do you agree with that? >> i think she could be a bridge builder in the future. i hope that happens. a few weeks before all of this in her office, we talked about her trying to build bridges with lee zeldin, who is very pro -- who had been attacking her, and calling her anti-semitic long
1:26 pm
before this. i hope she could be a bridge builder, i hope she can still raise this issue that she wants. also, a bigger issue, in this time of trump, muslims and jews, i've never been involved in more interfaith organizations, we both feel under the gun in the time of donald trump i don't want to see us work together closer. >> it's an important point. the congressman is going to need to recognize her role now. she has a pivotal moment in time. her words have a big impact. >> you wanted to run for congress. i know you did want to run for congress. >> does she need to apologize for the most recent comments? what would help build the bridge?
1:27 pm
>> absolutely. apologies are important. she also needs to learn that you can't say something, apologize, say it again, and apologize, say it again and apologize. at some point those apologies become of little value. she needs to learn from her mistakes, she needs to work and i agree with you, the muslim and jewish community more so than any other time in my career. after the shooting in pittsburgh, my congregation was full with muslim friends that have stood with us together. we need to build these bridges, that's the work that needs to be done. this is an easy distraction, and i think politics can easily -- the political game that often is played is being used to distract from the bigger question of moral leadership at our nation. where is it? it comes from the top down. >> thanks so much for having the conversation here. let's keep the conversation going to your point. we can all benefit from listening and trying to understand one another in our

1:33 pm
>> the federal government cannot get its act together. >> gavin newsom has always been in office a couple months and he's angry. he's not wasting any time taking on what he sees as the border's most pressing issue. >> i have four kids. >> so he's taken the controversial step of using california taxpayer's money. 25 milli$25 million for service asylum seekers. services that include this brand new san diego shelter for migrants, who are beginning asylum proceedings. >> the federal government should be doing this. it's the federal government's responsibility. immigration -- these people came legally, i just want to pause and reflect on it. these are people who came through process, legally. seeking asylum legally. >> hello, what's your name?
1:34 pm
>> pizza? >> that's a pretty name. nice to meet you. >> the state funding of the shelter follows some serious gubernatorial fuming. this from newsom's twitter feed. >> instead of fighting natural threats facing americans. the president has chosen to undermind our constitution. this is not a national emergency, it's a national disgrace. >> it is a national disgrace. >> you think he's xenophobic? >> i think a lot of the actions we've seen the last three years, by definition or textbook. textbook racists in many respects. >> are you at war with the twrumd administration? >> it's not just the trump administration. broadly trumpism. a lot of the rhetoric we're hearing on the streets and sidewalks. there's something going on. there's a lot of toxicity in our body politics right now.
1:35 pm
>> you've made the decision to pull the national guard from the border to end their border duty. there are some who say you shouldn't be doing that. the president thinks it's necessary, there's a national emergency. i can't even keep a straight face. this whole thing is comedic. >> you think it's funny? >> it's tragic. there's nothing funny about it. it's political theater, every single person knows it. they all know it. >> they would deny that. >> they would deny it, but they all laugh in private, they know better. >> you think the president's laughing? >> this isshtick. >> are you concerned if if you anger president trump when there's a disaster here, he will be thrifty on the emergency fund? >> so the alternative is what, just to roll over, be complicit? >> governor newsom says the united states needs border security, and he would not tear
1:36 pm
down california's current border barriers. he believes the president's future priorities and emergency declaration are naive and wasteful. >> this is one of our -- >> he says he won't be shy about using the bully pulpit author as the governor of the most populous state in america. >> i don't want to spar with the president of the united states. i want to work with the president of the united states. >> i will take a back seat to no one to have the backs of the people at this remarkable place i call home. the state of california. >> to the extent we will defend ourselves, we will do it vigorously, and do it from a position of strength. >> there will likely be more battles to come between the governor and the president. gary tuchman, cnn, san diego. the republican player of a town at ground zero for the fight over whether there is an actual emergency at the u.s. border has a message for donald trump. next hour i'll speak with el

fair is fair. members of the u.s. women's soccer team are suing the soccer federation. >> anna, and the timing on this lawsuit has to be noted. taking a stand yesterday on international women's day just three months before the women's world cup in france. this lawsuit includes the team's most prominent voices. 28 players in all listed in the complaint. they say u.s. soccer hasn't paid them the same as the men, nor do they get extra training or travel accommodations. all this despite the fact that the women have had so much more success than their male counterparts. their fight goes back years and includes a number of other
1:49 pm
lawsuits as well. the players say they haven't seen enough change. here they are fighting for it again. >> you're fighting for gender equality and pay quality. you see that in other federations where people are asking for what they deserve. you see teams fighting their federations for what they deserve. >> the men's national team is standing up for the women saying it in part fully supports the u.s. women's national team players to achieve equal pay. the biggest questions remaining, how far are the women willing to take this? will there be a resolution before the women's world cup kicks off. the first game is june 11th. >> thanks, let's discuss with christine brennan. cnn sports analyst christine. they say this gender discrimination issue has been going on for years. why this lawsuit now? >> anna, they've actually fought this over those years, in fact,
1:50 pm
going back almost 20 years, the u.s. women have had other skirmishes on these issues of labor, equality, and equal pay. this isn't the only team, and there have been other times when they have spoken out. they have spoken out about the turf they had to play on in the 2015 world cup in canada, artificial turf for the women. men would never ever stand for artificial turf. i thought they should try to boycott then. this team has been speaking out for a long time. this is the big one. the reason they've decided to do this now it's 2019. it's international women's day this happened. everything that's going on around the country, the world, is part and parcel of this conversation. and why the women of the soccer team have decided to do this now. >> you've been covering the world of sports for a long time. what have you observed and is this gender disparity specific just to soccer? >> no, it's not at all. in fact, two years ago, the u.s.
1:51 pm
women's ice hockey team boycotted and threatened to strike over their working conditions, their pay, and inequalities with the men. and then they won some significant concessions. and then went on a year later at the 2018 olympics to win the gold medal for the first time in 20 years. we've certainly seen it with women's tennis, where the u.s. open paid women equally, the other three majors did not. venus williams wrote an op ed in the times of london and got equal prize money for wimbeldon. it took that long for wimbeldon to come around. sometimes they're apples to apples like in tennis, men versus women, this one's a little harder, because there are some differences in the way the men are paid versus the women. bottom line, every metric you can look at anna, the women are paid 1/3 to 1/4 what the men are paid. >> let me give an example cited in this lawsuit.
1:52 pm
for a year with 20 friendlies a woman would make almost 5,000 a game. a man would make a little more than 13,000 a game. what needs to happen do you think to even the playing field? >> exactly this. the conversation that this is unacceptable as i think what's happened over the last couple days here on this story. the last 36 hours since it broke, is that it's already started a national conversation. i talked to a lot of people who aren't paying much attention to soccer who are paying attention to this. the pressure being put on the u.s. national governing body, which does a pretty good job vis-a-vis the rest of the world. but the rest of the world let's just say are male shovenists about soccer, they're sex its and they couldn't care less about women's soccer. the fact that the u.s. women's soccer federation has done a lot, is by no means enough in 2019. these are issues that are intertweened. sports takes us to a national
1:53 pm
