months, now big questions for boeing over a new model jet many americans fly. we're live at the site of the latest crash. declaring a national emergency, spend billions, then get congress to pay for it, that is just part of the president's new budget setting up a new battle over the border. omar wears a hijab. is this indicate of it ive of h adherence to sharia law? >> fox news condemning the comments after she questioned whether her religious beliefs oppose the u.s. constitution. and a soccer fan in england sucker punches a player in the head. wait until you see how they responded. welcome to "early start." i'm dave briggs. >> i'm jessica dean. it is monday, march 11:00, 5:00 a.m. in the east. we start with the deadly
plane crash. boeing facing serious safety questions following the second crash of a new 737 in the last five months. all 157 people on board an ethiopian airlines flight died sunday morning when the plane went down shortly after takeoff. the pilot had reported technical difficulties. 189 lives were also lost when a lion air crashed in late october. both involved brand new 737 max 8 airplanes. >> there is no evidence that the two incidents are linked, but if one issue caused both disasters, boeing might have to quickly have modifications to their planes. american and southwest operate dozens of them. this morning ethiopian airlines is grounding all bowing 737 max 8s. so is cayman's airlines. china's civil aviation authority is suspended all flights using the max 8.
boeing delaying plans to unveil its huge new jetliner this week. >> and eight americans were among the 157 killed. 19 of the dead were united nations staff members. >> we don't know the cause of the accident. we will comply with all the international regulations as an airline will be fully supporting and cooperating with the investigation and we will know the exact cause. >> robyn kriel joining us live from the crash site with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. and just to shed a little bit more light on perhaps what the final moments, what those passengers and those pilots and crew members went through in their final moments, it was just six minutes after taking off from bole international airport that ethiopian airlines flight 302 crashed in this field behind
me. we spoke to an eyewitness earlier today, he was collecting wood in the hills near by, he said he saw the plane flying erratically like the pilot was trying to do something. he also said that he believes that the plane was smoking in some fashion before it went down. so all of these sort of eyewitness accounts obviously you can't judge the entire incident just from one person's account, but investigators, police, information ren tick peop forensic people coming here and they have a disaster response unit here, they will all be collecting this are informatiin figure out what brought down the flight. to give you an idea of the scene behind me, devastating scene, a lot of fuselage from the plane and of course it is ongoing, they do still pull bodies out of the rubble. >> just a devastating scene the there. president trump will deliver a budget proposal this morning.
to politics now. president trump will deliver a budget proposal this morning, his first under a divided government. he is promising to balance the federal budget in 15 years by slashing spending for education, health, environment, foreign aid and other nondefense items a plan the lawmakers will likely ignore. high on the president's agenda, a white house official has confirmed that he will seek $8.6 billion for his border wall. >> the budget proposal has an additional $3.6 billion in military construction funds to pay back the money trump redirected using his executive authority. boris sanchez is traveling with the president and has more from west palm beach. >> reporter: in the proposed budget, president trump is asking all federal agencies to cut 5% of their spending except those agencies related to defense. the president asking for a $35 billion increase in defense spending over last year, including $8.6 billion for his long promised border wall. this is actually the first time in trump's presidency that the administration is requesting
funding for the border wall from different sources. the president asking for $5 billion from customs and border protection and an additional $3.6 billion from military construction funds at the pentagon. democrats are not happy about this budget. the congressional leadership and house speaker nancy pelosi and chuck schumer write that president trump hurt millions of americans and caused widespread chaos when he recklessly shut down the government to try to get his expensive and ineffective wall which he promised would be paid for by mexico. congress refused to fund his wall and he was forced to admit defeat and reopen the government. the same thing will repeat itself if he tries this again. we hope he learned his lesson. democrats are essentially daring the president to try to shut down the federal government again. it would be the third time in his presidency that the federal government is shut down over the issue of immigration. dave and jessica. >> boris, thank you.
it seemed like the 2020 democratic hopefuls were everywhere at south by southwest in austin this weekend. last night's cnn town hall, pete buttigieg is the youngest candidate in the race and he had harsh words for mike pence. >> vice president pence would be a better or worse president than president trump? >> oh. does it have to be -- >> politics is about choices, man. you know that. >> i don't know. it is really strange. i used to at least believe -- i disagreed with him on these things, but i thought at least he believes in our institutions and he is not personally corrupt. how could he become the cheerleader of the porn star presidency? is it that he stopped believing
in scripture when he started believing in donald trump? >> also in her town hall last night, congresswoman tulsi gabbard of hawaii focused on foreign policy, but the iraq war veteran would not say whether she believed syrian dictator bashar al assad is a war criminal. >> i think that the evidence needs to be gathered and as i have said before, there is evidence that he has committed war crimes, he should be prosecuted as such. >> but you're not sure now? >> everything that i have said requires that we take action based on evidence. the evidence is there, there should be accountability. >> for the record, evidence has been gathered and the u.n. has concluded assad was behind the chemical weapons attack. there was a texas sized buzz for beto o'rourke even though he hasn't officially declared, o'rourke appeared for the premiere of a documentary about
his senate race against ted cruz. he has teased a 2020 run, but he didn't reveal his timing. >> 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 are doing, what so many are doing and we want to continue to be a part of it. >> in the meantime take a look at the latest cnn "des moines register" iowa poll. joe biden still undeclared tops all democrats at 27%. bernie sanders is just two points back with the rest of the field well behind. fox news condemning remarks from one of its own top hosts last night. jeanine pirro questioned whether ilhan omar's religious beliefs run counter to the constitution. >> omar wears a hijab which according to the koran 33:59 tells women to cover so they won't get molested. is her adherence to this islamic doctrine indicative of her
adherence to sharia law which is antithetical to the united states constitution? >> her comments came at the end of the week of controversy for ilhan omar, beginning with her suggestion that jewish money is behind congressional support for israel. omar has drawn criticism from all quarters, but fox says pirro went too far. >> they say we condemn the comments, they don't reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly. pirro did not apologize but says i did not call representative omar unamerican. my intention was to ask a question and start a debate. but of course because one is a muslim does not mean you didn't support the constitution. the controversy around omar cast a cloud over democrats all last week and the gop took notice. liz cheney was one of 23 house republicans to vote against a resolution condemning hate.
>> it was clearly an effort to protect ilhan omar, to cover up her bigotry and anti-semitism by refusing to name her. the democrats have yet to take any action to remove her from her committee. the extent to which they are now abiding by anti-semitism is something we watch them struggle with. >> the resolution against hate started out focused on anti-semitism but gradually broadened to include groups across racial, ethnic and religious spectrums. and the worry over higher interest rates appears to be over at least for now. jerome powell says that the central bank will continue to take a wait and see approach to the rates. >> we see the economy as in a good place. we think that the outlook is a favorable one. inflation is muted.
and we think our policy rate is in an appropriate place and we said we would be patient. >> after four rate hikes last year, central bankers agreed to keep rates steady at the beginning of 2019. the fed had floated plans to raise rates three times or more this year, but it now expects to raise it only twice in 2019. powell said while america's economy is strong, the main risks are now from slower global growth. >> i would say the principal risks to our economy now seem to be coming from slower growth in china and europe and also risk such as brexit. >> powell also said attacks by president trump had zero influence on the decision to slow down interest rate hikes and waved off concerns of a looming recession. a woman tries to take a selfie with a jaguar. and it doesn't end well. why the zoo says the woman is at fault.

a woman is recovering this morning after an encounter with a jaguar at a zoo in arizona. it happened saturday night at the wildlife world zoo near phoenix. witnesses say she crossed over a barrier between the public and the animal's enclosure to take a photo. the female jaguar reacted reaching out and grabbing her arm. another zoo guest distracted the animal and the animal let the woman go. zoo officials say there were proper barriers in place and it is not a wild animal's fault when they are crossed. s jaguar will not be put town. >> glad to hear that. a soccer fan in england are arrested for running on to the field and punching a player in the head. it happened during the tenth minute of the match. you can see the fan running toward the footballer, get him from behind with a sucker punch. the fan was taken into custody
by security and east korlscorte. the player got the last laugh scoring the winning goal for as ton villa. following the match, an apology from birmingham city. the team says the fan has been barred for life. if you think row belbocalls annoying, you are not alone. john oliver came up with a way to send a message about it to the s.e.c. >> robocalling is so easy. only took our tech guy literally 15 minutes to work out how to do it. so will this trigger the robocall to the s.e.c.? no, that would be too simple. instead behold. instead when my finger presses this button, it will trigger this much larger finger to press a much larger button which will trigger our calls. so you know what you need to do.

there were smoking sections on airplanes, in restaurants. and then gradually it got to be where it wasn't anywhere. it's not part of the social norm anymore, it's not accepted. i was at a party this summer and there wasn't a single person smoking. even in my own home, i had my own designated space to smoke. if i think about it, it really was like i was punishing myself. it was really a friend of mine that said,
why wouldn't you just try the juul. and i thought hmm... ok, i'll try it. and so i went out and i bought one. the idea of going back to smoking is... i couldn't even imagine doing that. i just don't enjoy it anymore. i don't think anyone including myself thought that i could switch. woman 1: i had no symptoms of hepatitis c. man 1: mine... ...caused liver damage. vo: epclusa treats all main types of chronic hep c. vo: whatever your type, ask your doctor if epclusa is your kind of cure. woman 2: i had the common type. man 2: mine was rare. vo: epclusa has a 98% overall cure rate. man 3: i just found out about my hepatitis c. woman 3: i knew for years. vo: epclusa is only one pill, once a day, taken with or without food for 12 weeks.

omar wears a hijab. is her adherence to this islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to sharia law? >> in a rare rebuke of one of its own stars, fox news now condemning jeanine pirro. she questioned z whether a congresswoman's religious beliefs oppose the constitution. and a soccer fan in england sucker punches a player in the head. wait until you see how they responded. fritsz ee ee ee een that is fri. welcome back to early start oig. i'm dave briggs. >> and i'm jessica dean. boeing is facing serious safety questions following the second crash of a new 737 in the last five months. all 157 people on board an ethiopian airlines flight died sunday morning when the plane went down shortly after takeoff.
the pilot had reported technical difficulties. 189 lives were also lost when a lion air crashed in late october. both involved brand new 737 max 8 airplanes. >> there is no evidence that the two incidents are linked, but if one issue caused both disasters, boeing might have to quickly have modifications to their planes. china's aviation authority has suspended all guess domestic flights using the max 8. boeing delaying plans to unveil its huge new jetliner this week. >> and eight americans were among the 157 killed. 19 of the dead were united nations staff members. >> we don't know the cause of the accident. we will comply with all the international regulations as an airline will be fully supporting
and cooperating with the investigation and we will know the exact cause. >> robyn kriel joining us live from the crash site with the latest. >> reporter: jessica, as you can see, there is a pile of debris behind me, lime green debris. that is the color of their airline. and i think what make this is scene even more devastating and sad is that ethiopia is really going through a resurgence of spirit, it is opening up in terms of its democracy, they have a new prime minister that is making immense changes. and a blow to the national airline, something that is of massive national pride to ethiopians and the nation as a whole, that it compounds the issue further. a number of people we've spoken to here have apologized to us because they think that we are foreign, they say they are sorry for what happened, even though
they themselves lost a number of ethiopians on that flight, other people from kenya were on that flight. as you mentioned, people from the united nations, humanitarians, professors, lawyers, an amazing array of folks that really speaks to the heart of operating in this region. they were flying many of them for on business to help with the u.n. environmental conference. they were flying to nairobi. there are a lot of tough countries in this region such as somalia, south sudan, countries with major issues. and of course just a devastating scene here with 157 people killed in that plane crash. >> devastating indeed. thanks so much. to politics now. president trump will deliver a budget proposal this morning, his first under a divided government. he is promising to balance the federal budget in 15 years by
slashing spending for education, health, environment, foreign aid and other nondefense items a plan the lawmakers will likely ignore. high on the president's agenda, a white house official has confirmed that he will seek $8.6 billion for his border wall. >> the budget proposal has an additional $3.6 billion in military construction funds to pay back the money trump redirected using his executive authority. democratic leader respect say they hope the president learned his will he on fr lesson from the recent shutdown. it seemed that the democratic hopefuls were everywhere at south by southwest this weekend. last night's cnn town hall, pete buttigieg had harsh words for mike pence. >> vice president pence would be a better or worse president than president trump? >> oh.
does it have to be -- >> politics is about choices, man. you know that. >> i don't know. it is really strange. i used to at least believe -- i disagreed with him ferociously on these things, but i thought at least he believes in our institutions and he is not personally corrupt. how could he allow himself to be the cheerleader of the stporn sr presidency. is it that he stopped believing in scripture when he started believing in donald trump? >> wow. also in her town hall last night, congresswoman tulsi gabbard of hawaii focused on foreign policy, but the iraq war veteran would not say whether she believed syrian dictator bashar al assad is a war criminal. >> i think that the evidence needs to be gathered and as i have said before, there is evidence that he has committed war crimes, he should be prosecuted as such. >> but you're not sure now?
>> everything that i have said requires that we take action based on evidence. the evidence is there, there should be accountability. >> for the record, evidence has been gathered and the u.n. has concluded assad was behind the april 20 17 chemical weapons attack. that was an easy one that she did not deliver on. >> joining us is julian zelizer. good morning. thanks so much for being here. i want to get to 2020 in a second, but let's start first with this budget that has been proposed. president trump going back to the well on this, an $8.6 billion for the wall doubling down on that. and drastic cuts to domestic spending. what can be read into this budget proemposal? >> he's doubling down on the issue he believes is a key issue for his campaign, he will force the discussion about the wall. now republicans are going to have to deal with it again. and now it will be framed as
republicans want the money for the wall instead of the domestic programs that many americans count on. so there is a lot for democrats to play with on this. >> and let's point out republicans did not give him the money for this wall. the paul ryan republican controlled house did not give him this wall. but also this week will be a vote on the national emergency regarding that wall. and four republicans have stepped up and said that they will vote with democrats. i don't know that four even fath matters. if this vote is short of say ten republicans, how consequential is it for the party? >> so much aspirin. they won't be able to claim they are against executive power when it is invoked against something that they care about, but at in point i don't think the republicans care. they are focused on winning the election, focused on generally supporting the president and this is a symbolic vote. to say a few opposed it but in
the end he gets what he wants. >> frankly my opinion, it would be stunning if mitt romney, when sasse, if mike lee, if lamar alexander did not join the democrats and step up and say here is a line, you cannot cross. but we'll see. probably by wednesday. >> to that point, all eyes on 2020 and everybody really trying to circle the wagons in effect to get this president reelected. we are getting a new poll out of iowa that is taking a look at the democratic contenders and there are the numbers. joe biden at the top at 27% and followed by bernie sanders at 25%. and everybody else in single digits. how much is name i.d. playing into all of this? >> huge. the two frontrunners are the people everybody is familiar with and the others are less known unless you follow politics all the time. in 2015 around this time, scott
walker was leading in the iowa poll for the republicans. in 2008, hillary clinton had a very solid lead. and obviously barack obama wasn't on the radar. so we have to take these as a poll of where things are right now. the only interesting thing is that sanders is doing well. so it does indicate his support was not ephemeral four years ago and there is something there to his campaign. but that is it. >> and if tthe 77-year-old does extraordinarily with young people. and to your point, rudy giuliani at one point at this time was leading for the republicans. i want to ask you about the issues because republicans and the president would like to be about socialism, that the left wants to go with socialism. and democrats are oddly having a hard time talking about capitalism. here is john hickenlooper former colorado governor and businessman, a man who has made billions struggling to answer questions about what made him
who he is, capitalism. >> whyare youuncomfortable callg yourself a proud capital snis. >> the point i was making, we define people by these labels that have all kind of baggage with them. do i believe in small business? of course i believe in small business. >> he was elected because of really what he did as a capitalist. why is he struggling to answer that question? isn't this an easy one? >> this should be a political lay-up for all the candidates. they should just say yes, we are for capitalize and then get to the issues. i think that they are all trying to figure out what is the eelectoral landscape. but i think that is the kind of answer to give is a big mistake. >> and just how far left does the electorate want them to go. >> and not as far left as the president is painting them. i really think that is an
exaggeration. but they will have to make the case because the question is coming. >> and also one more thing before we let you go, the president's twitter feed obviously is generally pretty active. we've had this horrible ethiopian airways crash in which the americans died, but the president has not tweeted about that. >> spent a lot of time tweeting about hillary clinton and fusion gps. >> is that fair criticism of the president to say look, you've been on social media, you've been talking about these theories about hillary clinton and e-mails and all, but americans are dead why n. ethiopia and is it t. does harken back to when he made those comments about blank hole countries. >> i don't know what motivates him, but it is totally fair. this is his bully pulpit and he focuses on the issues that he cares about. so it is fine to ask why isn't this on the top of his mind.
and it is not as if he is doing something else. he is sitting there tweeting or someone is tweeting for him. but that wasn't one of the stories that really moved him. he was much more interested in his traditional fights and that says a lot about his priorities and what moves him. >> julian, thank you. another thing the president loves to tweet about is jeanine pirro and fox news condemning remarks from that very host. pirro questioned whether ilhan omar's religious beliefs run counter to the u.s. constitution. >> think about it. owe are mar wears a hijab according to koran tells women to cover so they won't get molested. is her adherence to this islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to sharia law which in itself is anti-thet cthetical t
united states constitution? >> this was at the end of a week of controversy for representative omar following the suggestion that jewish money is behind congressional support for israel. but fox says pirro went too far. >> the network says we strongly condemn jeanine pirro's comments about representative ilhan omar. they do not regleblgts those fle net work. and pirro did not quite apologize but said i did not call representative omar unameric unamerican. i requested the question to start a debate. the controversy around owe cast a cloud over democrats all week. a resolution against hate started out focusing narrowly on domest ant anti-semitism but was gradually broadened. isis is on its last legs.

to save 30% on all the medications we carry. so go directly to petmeds.com now. the final push is under way to wipe out the last isis enclave in syria. right now a fierce assault by u.s.-backed syrian democratic forces is under way in ba ghchlt houz. and our correspondent ben wedeman is live in eastern syria. >> reporter: at the moment it is relatively quiet. we've had occasional air strikes, occasional artillery or
mortar rounds going into this encampment behind me, it is just about a half square mile. but overnight, we saw some very intense gunfire and air strikes on the small camp behind me. despite all of that, what we're able to see through our telephoto lens is that there are still people walking around. they may not be visible now. we did see them earlier. but you can see the black banner of isis waving in the wind amid the ruins. what we're really seeing behind us is there are some tents and a lot of wrecked cars. we were able to get very close to the edge of one of those encampments and found that inside each tent, they have dug trenches about a yard, a yard and a half deep to try to get some sort of protection from the air strikes and the bombardment.
