tv   New Day Weekend With Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul  CNN  March 10, 2019 4:00am-5:01am PDT

4:00 am
again? how stupid do you think i am? is this the camera? >> no. that is a plant. >> okay. guys, think for a minute. use your brains! why would i do these things? for years? i gave y'all chop in the closet and feeling on your boutique. age ain't nothing but a number! and so many other clues! joe biden and bernie sanders top the field by a pretty wide margin. >> other top tier candidates are struggling to get out of the single digits. >> no doubt this race is on in the hawkeye state. >> another sign that o'rourke is inching toward running for president right now. >> when are you going to announce your presidential run? >> we got to be a part of this amazing thing in texas the last two years and it continues. >> it's open season on r. kelly.
4:01 am
>> i promise you we will straighten all of this stuff out. that's all i can say right now. this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. good morning to you. thank you for sharing your time with us here on this sunday. there is a big day ahead for the democratic party. cnn, the only place you're going to be able to watch three town halls with a trio of 2020 presidential contenders. >> more on that in a moment. first, we have to tell you about events breaking overnight. >> an ethiopia airlines plane carrying 157 people has crashed in ethiopia en route to nairobi, kenya. they are reporting no survivors on the plane but yet to confirm that. >> we are following this breaking news from johan
4:02 am
necessariburg. what else do we know after the takeoff? >> reporter: good morning. just six minutes after taking off from the very busy international airport there in bishoftu to neighboring nairobi, they lost contact with the plane and then the plane crashed an hour's drive southeast of the capital. this was a brand new boeing 737 with more than 10 passengers 15n board. they are saying there are no -- that they had -- close to the capitol. very worrying, of course, because this is this brand-new plane and it could be
4:03 am
coincidental but worth pointing out this is the same type of plane that went down late last year in indonesia, also a brand-new 737. authorities say there are multiple nationalities on board and a popular route frequented by international business travelers a travele travelers and united nations workers and they have to figure out how this went off in clear and beautiful weather in east africa but no survivors reported by state media. we will have to get word from the airline as well. >> david mckenzie, thank you so much. let's go now to austin, texas, where cnn is hosting three back-to-back town halls with three presidential candidates tonight. >> that includes gabbard and
4:04 am
buttigieg and john delaney. this used to be about music. how did this festival turn into a political venue? >> reporter: i'm standing in a music venue right now. what was once a music and culture festival here in austin has really been dominated by politics, at least this year. it's been the biggest gathering of 2020 potential candidates or declared candidates to date this year. now, texas is, obviously, an early voting state and an important state in the election but not what this is about. the audience here far more younger and liberal than any audiences these candidates will see in, say, iowa and new hampshire. you're seeing a lot of people highlighting the youth and policy they think will resonate with young voters. there is also a debate going on in these town halls what kind of liberal, what kind of progressive are these candidates? you actually saw a interesting moment yesterday with elizabeth
4:05 am
warren when she was asked about bernie sanders and his political beliefs and here is what she had to say about the therm democratic socialism. >> know the difference between what you and bernie are really saying? what is the crux of the difference? >> bernie has to speak what democratic socialism is. >> you are not one? >> i am not. the centers have to speak what they are doing. i speak to what i do. >> reporter: as for that youth, you will see that on display tonight at cnn town halls where you see mayor pete buttigieg, the mayor of south bend, he is 37 years old and tulsi gabbard is also 37 from hawaii. they have been allowed to run for president two years and they have both talked about the audacity of running for president at that age and a money factor here. many people attending this conference are well off enough to donate to political
4:06 am
campaigns. governor of colorado is also fund-raising while he is in town and that at play as well. then the potential candidates. you mentioned beto o'rourke, the former congressman from el paso, texas. he ran for senate in 2018. he is openly considering running for president and he was asked about that at a documentary screening yesterday. i'll let you gauge how he answered the question when you listen to this video. >> when are you going to announce your presidential run? >> so many candidacies, so many leaders who are -- we got to be a part of this amazing thing in texas over the last two years. and it continues and we are so excited about what you're doing, rhonda, what you and so many other people are doing and we want to continue to be a part of it, so thank you. >> reporter: i don't think that counts as an answer to the question that was asked. but certainly we will be watching what beto o'rourke does
4:07 am
going forward. he is a fan favorite here and a lot of people with his name on their signs. then see former hud secretary and others today. as well as the town hall that is season on cnn. >> thank you, dan. tell you about this iowa poll was released and name recognition seems to be paying off for the time being. the top contender is joe biden who isn't even in the race yet. >> in second place is bernie sanders right where he finished last time. let's take a look at the numbers with cnn washington correspondent ryan nobles. the last time we took the temperature of iowa voters very few candidates in the race and i can tell you having just returned from iowa the campaign is very much on and now we now have 14 candidates who have officially announced or formed exploratory committees.
4:08 am
despite having so many candidates in the field the results have not changed that much from our survey back in december. take a look where things stand right now. joe biden and bernie sanders top the field by a pretty wide margin and sanders trailing by only two points from biden and not another candidate that cracks 10%. elizabeth warren has 9%. kamala harris 7% and beto o'rourke at 5% and booker and klobuchar at 3%. not one other candidate we polled register above the 1% mark and important because a candidate must earn at least 1% in three different polls to gain access to the upcoming dnc debates. thernow, e is some movement from what we saw in december and that is to the benefit of bernie sanders. take a look where things are from a couple of months ago. sanders only at 19% at that point. biden 32%. sanders has gone up quite a bit to 25%. biden has lost ground at 27%. the big difference there, sanders officially in the race, biden not in quite yet.
4:09 am
the other candidates in this race have not changed that much, although we should note that o'rourke a candidate not why yet at 11% in december and now dropped to 5%. there is also something interesting about the way the youth vote has an intact on these candidates. take a look. i was at an event with bernie sanders at a college campus in iowa city earlier this week and so many young people there passionately behind his campaign and that is really reflected in this poll. voters under the age of 45 support sanders but flip the numbers. but flip the numbers and take a look at joe biden support with voters over 35, he takes 32% of the vote. a lot of energy with young people but generally the older voters, especially in a caucus state like iowa, is a lot more reliable. but, of course, the big thing we need to remind everyone is that we are a long way away from votes being cast so unlikely what we see from this snapshot
4:10 am
in time will actually be how things turn out a year from now. let's talk about the poll now. we have with us errol louis, cnn political commentator and of "spectrum news." good morning. >> thank you. >> what do you make of this narrowing of this gap between biden and sanders if we talk about how name recognition is really what these polls are about and neither of those men have probably changed that much in that category from 13 in december now to 2%? >> well, look. bernie sanders actually declared. he had a great big rally. it's not surprising that both his name recognition and any kind of preference questions will sort of lean in his favor just because he is out there. he is spending millions of dollars and raised 10 million the first week. you're seeing all kind of visra social media efforts going on. once you start you say you'll do better. fountain numbers in the opposite direction that would be a damming and telling sign for
4:11 am
bernie sanders but he is really picking up where he left off. >> an interesting answer to one of the questions here about the type of nominee they want. when asked if the party should nominate a straight white man in 2020, considering the front-runners we have here, the people are unsure. 38% yes, 21% no, 40% unsure here. it's 15 years sins the democratic party has nominated a straight white man for president. what do you make of that? is this a party looking for that or a reaction to the candidates that have declared? >> i don't know that diversity -- even within this poll, you don't see that diversity itself is an issue that people are concerned about or looking for or are casting votes based on. i think, though, what you are going to find is that those who have been out there like bernie sanders and joe biden they will have the big numbers and more diverse much younger field, some of these people who are only barely eligible to run for
4:12 am
office, they are going to start to sort of make their way into the public consciousness. i think what the town halls are going to do and what some of the early campaigning is going to do. something you want to keep in mind is one person or candidate that does break double digits is no preference. you know? you rank everything and a lot of people are still kind of making up their minds. we are a long way, i think, from really reducing this to front-runners, nonfront-runners. i know democratic leadership wants to get this done sooner rather than later and they can't have 20 candidates going into 2020, but it's going to be a while, i think, before the voters start making their choices. >> let's talk about some of the decisions that have to be made about how long to stay in the race. we talked a lot about the senators warren and sanders and booker and klobuchar and harris and all. one senator not doing well in the latest poll is kirsten gillibrand. put her numbers up. for those sharing her first choice she is less than 1% and
4:13 am
in december less than 1%. doesn't seem to be resonating with iowa voters. >> i think it's a little early to conclude that. i know kirsten gillibrand well. she is tenacious and people don't see her until she gets there. she is crisscrossing iowa and making west coast swings i believe as well and in new hampshire. i think she is going to make her case, but to break 1%, you know, the way the democratic national committee has set this up using that 1% threshold, it's actually very difficult to do. it's actually very difficult to do. she is 1% nationally, you need to have an organization in iowa. it's an entirely kind of metric they use. >> she has been in the race almost two months and harris, booker, clo vertebklobuchar and
4:14 am
and breaking out over her. >> i think she is probably worried and reason to be worried and she has to tell a story to donors. in some ways that is where these polls matter the most right now. not so much we in the chattering classes but people who are writing checks and enable the campaigns to get off the ground. she clearly has as much of a path to victory as anybody else who are at barely 1%. >> thank you, louis. live town hall is this evening starting at 7:00. it's right here on cnn. can you put a monetary value on the presidents of u.s. troops? the trump administration is considering doing so and they say it's time for allies to pay up for troops stationed overseas. r&b singer r. kelly is out of jail on bail after an
4:15 am
anonymous person paid $161,000 on child support. talk about his looming battles ahead. a woman attacked by a jaguar after taking a selfie at a zoo. we will tell you what happened here.
4:16 am
4:17 am
man: seven more weeks. wow. good news is, we bought a house in time. woman: but...we're a little low on cash after the down payment. man: and the baby room needs new carpet. woman: and a door. ugh, and a window. man: and we still got to patch that mystery hole. woman: and then make it super adorable. man: ridiculously adorable. this is why we sofi. with sofi's no-fee personal loan, borrow up to $100k for home projects. with sofi's no-fee personal loan, i was thinking...d clot could there be another around the corner? or could it turn out differently? i wanted to help protect myself. my doctor recommended eliquis. eliquis is proven to treat and help prevent another dvt or pe blood clot... almost 98 percent of patients on eliquis
4:18 am
didn't experience another. ...and eliquis has significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis is fda approved and has both. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. what's around the corner could be surprising. ask your doctor about eliquis. since you're heading off to dad... i just got a zerowater. but we've always used brita. it's two stage-filter... doesn't compare to zerowater's 5-stage. this meter shows how much stuff, or dissolved solids, gets left behind. our tap water is 220.
4:19 am
brita? 110... seriously? but zerowater- let me guess. zero? yup, that's how i know it is the purest-tasting water. i need to find the receipt for that. oh yeah, you do. r. kelly is out of jail for the second time in less an month after $161,000 in child support was paid on his behalf and not clear who paid that money that was owed but the singer is expected in court next week in the child support case and later this month in the sexual abuse days case. last hour i talked to cnn analyst joey jackson about this. >> i think the first thing you need to do is get what we lawyers call discovery and that is to see exactly what the prosecution has, parse through that information and determine whether there are inconsistencies and discrepancies and what motivations there are. and, you know, i think that is the way to go at least initially. then they are going to have a lot of work to do in terms of prepping r. kelly should he
4:20 am
testify. that is an open question and doesn't need to be answered right away. the performance he gave to gayle king needs to be revisited and he needs his demeanor in check too so they will work on that as well. >> i want to ask you about that. i feel we saw two different r. kelly the last several days. who we saw in the cbs interview who was very angry and who we saw yesterday, who was very measured. what do you make of that? >> you know, i think in terms of the gayle king interview -- i think people can get and understand that a person who is undergoing this type of stress, frustration, et cetera, you know, would be passionate about it, but i think you have to harness that passion and i think to your point, there needs to be kind of like a combination of the two, right? a person who is passionate on the one hand without be belligerent as we are looking there at the video and a person who is assured and calm and can be trusted because jurors have to relate to you and they have to understand you and find you
4:21 am
credible, so i'm sure his lawyers will work on him whether he testifies at trial or not. that is an open question but should he testify, i think that there is a lot of work to do so that performance is not repeated. >> i got you. so you mentioned his lawyers. let's listen to steve greenberg, what he had to say yesterday outside of the jail as well. >> it's open season on r. kelly. everybody is now coming forward saying i met this man and this is what happened. look. there is no money for these people. i keep thinking when i used to take my daughter when she was a little kid and took her to see "beauty and the beast." and they walked up with pitchforks. >> open season and pitchforks. what do you make of that characterization? >> you know, everybody handles things differently. every's attorney's personality and comportment and demeanor is different. but if he is going to represent them as it looks to be in front of a jury, the jury has to find his attorney credible. jurors rely upon attorneys to teach them about the case and they believe in the attorney and believe in the message and i think it needs to be a
4:22 am
fine-tuned message. on the one hand, you have to test and challenge the veracotu of all victims and you have to test credibility, you have take to you about distinctions and as well. a woman was taking a selfie at a arizona zoo and the jaguar attacked her. a spokesperson for the zoo says the following. please understand why barriers are put in place and sending prayers to the family tonight. the zoo says the incident occurred with a guest who crossed over the barrier to get a photo according to eyewitnesses. there were no employees nearby when this happened. trump administration has plan to make u.s. allies pay up.

4:27 am
27 minutes after the hour now. in private, the trump administration has been discussing how to turn allied relationships into potential revenue and getting countries who host u.s. troops in peace time to pay. as first reported by bloomberg, one of the plans has been called internally cost plus 50, meaning the united states should work to get countries to cover the full cost of the u.s. military presence in their country and also pay an additional 50% of that cost. joining me now to talk about this is cnn military analyst and retired lieutenant general mark hertling. welcome back. >> thank you, victor. >> let's start with your general thoughts on the cost plus 50
4:28 am
idea. >> bad idea across the board, victor. and it's ill conceived from the beginning and already receiving pushback from members of the national security council, the defense department and commerce department and treasury department. it is such because those who were informed about our forward stationing of military forces know that we probably get more, much more from a strategic interest standpoint than any foreign government might get in terms of their defensive alliances. the building of alliances is critical in military operations, in a globalized world and why it's important to have these bases all over the world. the bottom line is they help the united states much more than they help any other country and most of the countries where we have bases aren't used for defensive purposes, they are used for our strategic interests
4:29 am
and to contribute to theater security cooperation. >> there is a reason, a great value in having ramstein and landstuhl in germany there and great value having those troops in south korea, the message to china and to japan and to north korea. i don't think the 50% premium trying to turn this into maybe a profit center or to turn a profit on having military resources in these countries. but there is a valuable conversation to have about burden sharing, is there not? >> oh, certainly. and that is a conversation that has been had over the last decade or so, especially with nato partners. but when you go into most countries where we have stationing of military units, you'll find that they are already paying a significant fund for our forces being there. and it's usually somewhere
4:30 am
around 20% to 21% which is back to what they pay the united states but also a requirement that we have heard so much recently is paying an alliance like nato. very few countries in nato we have soldiers. as you said a minute ago, the requirement for naval bases in the pacific to ensure freed of navigation for commercial vessels is critical. the requirement to have air bases in other parts of the world to maintain a global footprint for flights is important. so it's much more than just having that soldier on the ground, if you will, in foreign country like germany or italy or korea. it has to do with what kind of strategic advantages do question get? to your impe we also receive a predetermined amount of money from most nations. i think the cost plus as it's called has come about because
4:31 am
our president happens to be a real estate guy and he has dealt in cost plus transactions chf very many advantages, but also a whole realm of disadvantages that many people don't talk. >> a report this is making the south koreans nervous as they just renewed a contract and offered their payment, looking forward down the line. let me ask you here. what then if the countries don't pay? what i don't see is the end of this plan. is it that, okay, we are pulling our troops out, we are closing the bases some what do you see as the end game of this plan if they say no? >> that is what has been advertised. if they say no, we will pull out. i received a note yesterday from a german colleague that i knew when i was commanding in europe and he said, you know, we always have looked as our american friends as allies and friends. we have never seen them as
4:32 am
mercenaries and this particular plan is couching you in terms of a mercenary. we are paying you to be here which is just incredible and it just doesn't make any sense. so it also gets to the professionalism of the u.s. military. when a soldier or sailor or airman or marine joins they raise their hand to defend the constitution and is defending values. we do not raise our hand to make a profit or get a return on investment. that is not what the u.s. military does in terms of the defense of the country or our strategic alliances so that is problematic as well. the end state of this, as you said, i don't know what it would be if a country blocked at paying this cost plus 50. i parent you, all of them would. i don't think any would pay for having u.s. forces there and as a result we would pay a great
4:33 am
deal. >> it may never get that far and this is still early conversations. general, always good to have you. >> thank you, victor. have a great day. >> you too. childhood diseases that can be prevented by vaccines are making a comeback in part because of misinformation leads some parents to keep their children from getting shots. some of those children are growing up and they are getting themselves vaccinated. we are talking to one young man who is doing just that. tonight part three of the "the bush years" we explore george h.w. bush time as a loyal vice president and his son's increasing interest in their own political futures. >> i, george herbert walker bush do solemnly swear. >> for my dad to be on that podium taking the oath of office for vice president of the united states was amazing.
4:34 am
>> at some point during the inaugural, he leaned over and said, who would of thunk it? not too bad for two guys from texas without any vision. >> with george bush winning the vice presidency, that changes everything in the family. >> watch "the bush years" tonight at 10:00 here on cnn. a whole new way to care for newborns is born new johnson's cottontouch™ wash and lotion made with real cotton and enhances your gentle touch a new soft a new touch a new gentle new johnson's cottontouch™ (baby cooing) choose gentle

[ singing in spanish ] is reporting a mumps outbreak. temple university has reported at least 16 confirmed or suspected cases and in washington state we have 70 people who are confirmed to have
4:39 am
the measles. most of them were not vaccinated. some parents decide their children should not get those shots base their decision as we understand it on misinformation it has reached capitol hill on senate controlled hearings on what is causing these outbreaks. ethan's parents did not get him vaccinated. >> for organizations that spread this misinformation they instill fear knowing their information is correct. for my mother her love was apparent and used to push an agenda to create a false distress and these sources which spread misinformation should be the primary concern of the american people. >> ethan is joining us now from ohio. thank you for the time. i know you never received any of these standard vaccines as i
4:40 am
understand it, no chicken pox, hepatitis, measles, mumps, polio, anything. what happened that made you realize you wanted to get these vaccines? >> it was a combination of a lot of things. i grew up hearing about my mom and see people argue with her. as i approached my senior year of high school i had been arguing with her about multiple years trying to understand her perspective put she said the cdc and w.h.o. and i saw not a lot of reason behind those beliefs so when i turned 18 i decided it was important enough to do myself even though my mom disagreed. >> you described your father as a little vaccine hesitant and your mom as a vaccine advocate. how did she react when you went to get a vaccine for the first time? >> so i handled it very respectfully and maturely. i called her and lieutenant her know i was interested in getting
4:41 am
vaccinated and not outright do it and not do it behind her back even though i could have done that. i explained i wanted to speak to my health care provider and my physician to understand the doctor a doctor's perspective and she thought it undermining the beliefsive grown up and we found a common ground that i was respectfully disagreeing with her. >> it's misinformation but when it's your parents, that is a tough place for you to be in. there are a lot of kids that might be in your same position. how do -- what guidance do you give them? >> i always say don't hate your parents for the misbeliefs that has been instilled in them. people that have these beliefs that think that vaccines cause autism and brain damage and don't actually benefit people, it's not it's out of malice.
4:42 am
they love their kids and afraid of those dangers. if you understand that and you talk to walk that respectful line, it worked for me at least and it might work for you too. >> i'm wondering -- you know better than i do probably -- how expansive is this? have you met a lot of other teens who are in the same position you are in? >> i spoke to a lot of them, yeah. a lot of my friends are vaccinated. the majority people are. i saw upwards of 75% of people don't view any vaccines as -- little or no danger. they are not really that big of a deal and they are safe so most people hold the belief they are fine. i talked to a lot of teens that are in that situation, at least on a personal level. >> what do they struggle with most? >> it's just that they believe this they are wrong and they are afraid to confront that because a lot of people grow up understanding the authority is more important than their views and something like this, that authority is potentially putting you in a medical risky situation. you're going to be put in danger
4:43 am
potentially. >> when you talk to the senate committee on tuesday, what point did you most want to get across to them and do you think that you did so? >> my main point was the misinformation. i hit home on that and that is what people resonated with and if you even saw only two days after the testimony that i had provided was given and the committee had that meeting, only two days after, facebook changed their approach to anti-vaccine content and announced to take larger steps to take misinformation from spreading. i think that hit my goal and we are already seeing change. >> senator rand paul was very open with you during this conversation about his opposition to mandatory vaccines. do you think they need to be mandatory? >> so there is a distinguished -- we need to distinguish what mandatory means versus force. most people by mandatory mean school man days ago for public school you need to have vaccines to go to public school and i fully support that. you're talking about people put
4:44 am

4:49 am
with jake tapper at 9:00 a.m. here on cnn. president trump is lashing out at one of his earliest supporters. >> he called anne coulter a wacky nut jock for her lack of support on his border wall. brian stelter host of "reliable sources" is joining us. last month the president was denied the commentator influenced him and what set him off? >> it shows that anne coulter occupies prime real estate in the president's head because she was a big supportert of president and far right wring commentator who wants to see more wall as soon as possible. she wants strong wall and she believes the president has given in when it comes to what is going on at the border. last month she said the only national emergency is that our president is an idiot. there has been name calling on both sides. but if we move from the insults
4:50 am
to the issues here, coulter and trump are in a minor. they have not been able to persuade the mantle of the public to support billions of border wall funding. the president is going into a legal battle as he tries to reallocate money for construction of a wall. it's the example of a intramural fight between the countiers and trumps of the world. it just goes to show these commentators do get under the president's skin, even though he claims otherwise. i think hi tweets tell the real story. the president played up the conservative judges appointed to the bench. does it appear that the president, with his response to coulter over the wall, now talking about the judges, he's concerned about his base. >> he's trying to build up his own wall with the base. i think this is the this could be worse school of politics.
4:51 am
well, you know, look at the judges i'm appointing. it could be worse. he said it could be worse. when he talk about the economy, the stock market, he says it would have collapsed if hillary clinton was elected. it could have been worse. that's the message he goes after again and again. the advantage for the president is it's hard to fact check those hyperbolic claims. saying, even if you're not thrilled about me, it could be worse. >> which he actually said? >> yeah, sometimes literally what he said during the campaign. >> brian stelter, good to have you. >> thanks. and check out brian later today on "reliable sources." look at these pictures. a tornado tore through northern

4:59 am
not only the severe weather, but also the potential here for flooding. victor and christi, the southeast does not need any more rain, but unfortunately some places are likely to pick up an additional 4 to 6 inches before that next system slides out. >> i feel like we're early into the season for this to be happening. what does this tell you about the forecast for spring when we see this really hitting in, though i know we're on the edge of spring. >> the one thing that's a downfall, this isn't a rainy season. that becomes spring. you're already going in with a completely saturated ground. on the tornado end, yes, march is when we see the up tick, but it's by mo means the peak. really april, may and june are the peak for tornadoes. so it's almost frightening to start off the season with so many tornadoesing, knowing it's likely to go up from here.
