3:00 am
xfinity, the future of awesome. someone is watching us and shooting at us because we are muslims. >> he dropped the gun as well and he just run. >> they need to change. >> no matter how many years you spend in law enforcement as a profession, the legal of what took place there is soul shattering. ♪ >> announcer: this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell
3:01 am
and christi paul. good morning to you. we are so happy to have you with us here. week-by-week, more and more democratic candidates are joining the 2010 race for president and it's just happening more and more today as well. joe biden now questions about what he said overnight that might be a gaffe. some people say he is kind of the gaffe machine but he might have just announced. >> we have to follow-up to see if that is official. the current president will not let this former senator rest. seven months after the death of john mccain, president trump takes a shot at john mccain on twitter. and the prime minister of new zealand to change the gun laws immediately.
3:02 am
victims bodies are being returned to their families in new zealand and another victim was found in one of the mosques attacked by the gunman. now we know the number of people killed is at 50. >> 50 wounded as well. 34 are still recovering in the hospital including a child. 12 of those victims are in critical condition. tomorrow, police are going to spread out across that country and offer protection to any mosque that requests it. new zealand's prime minister is moving to change the country's gun laws at a cabinet meeting so they already are planning to address this as well tomorrow. the gun laws. we want to go live to christ church where cnn international correspondent ivan watson is with us. ivan, what are you hearing this hour? >> reporter: i'm coming to you from next to the botanical gardens. as you can see, this has become an improvised memorial side for many of the victims of the terrorist attack that took place
3:03 am
on friday. other sites like this in christ church and across the country, messages that say we love you. they are us. this is not new zealand. and kiaka is an expression that means stay strong. i am seeing the children's messages written in crayon saying we miss you. those are the type of things that put a lump in my throat and left many people here crying as they quietly file through. it's after 11:00 so the crowds have thinned somewhat. the authorities continue with their investigation. they say two other suspects that were arrested yesterday, they are not believed to be linked with the attacks that took place at the two mosque oz friday leaving one person who was charged with murder in a court
3:04 am
in christ church on saturday, authorities saying that some of the weapons that he was caught with, the firearms, were believed to have been modify, possibly to make them more deadly. the work of trying to return the bodies of victims to their loved ones, that is painstaking and slow since there are just so many people who were killed by the suspected gunman. the authorities came out with a statement explaining the processes they are going through, saying that they are having to be very careful getting dental records, pulling out the personal possessions and documenting them of each victim to make sure that nobody has returned the remains of the wrong person and this is complicated further by the fact that many people come from other countries. for example, pakistan says it lost nine of its citizens, egypt lost four of its citizens, so
3:05 am
the chief coroner here saying they don't want to send somebody back to their country of origin and it is the wrong person being sent back, but that doesn't make it any easier for ankguished rlf relatives to get their loved ones back and call for a burial to happen within 4 hou24 hours death. . the prime minister said the gun laws will be strengthened and changed but not indicated what will take place yet. there are 1.2 million firearms in new zealand, a country of some 5 million people, that is according to the new zealand police, that is about one gun for every three people and the chief suspect had a legal permit, even though he wasn't a citizen of new zealand, and he also acquired his guns legally. facebook has put out a statement saying they are trying to scrub the images that the suspect live streamed on to the internet.
3:06 am
they say they have removed some 1.5 million videos globally in the first 24 hours after the attack. that is a virus of hatred that has spread out. i can tell you this, we are seeing an analog challenge to that with the handwritten shows of support and love to the victims and the tiny muslim community in this country. >> ivan, you made such a good point. sometimes the truth just speaks loudest in children and it's really interesting to hear your perspective on that. thank you so much, ivan watson. we are learning more about some of the victims of this attack. the jordanian foreign minister industry saying a 5-year-old has undergone surgery and was a victim. another victim moved to christ
3:07 am
church in 1977 as an asylum seeker and running ten minutes late to the service and the attack was happening as he got there. now survivors are constantly reliving what happened. >> i just constantly think about it, getting those flashbacks and it's one of those experiences i wish no one ever encounters. it's just catastrophic and it's just -- >> reporter: have you been to a funeral this morning? >> yes, i have. >> reporter: whose funeral was that? >> just some close friends and family friends that passed away and deceived. and it was even difficult to even go to the funeral. there was still speck laulation somebody is watching us and shoot us at the funeral just because we are muslims. >> to find out how you can help the victims of the new zealand terror attacks, go to
3:08 am we are learning more about the countries that the suspect, the shooter visited before the attack. a long list. >> apparently, he took repeated trips to the balkans and turkey and pakistan and north korea. the question is why? let's go to arwa damon in turkey. what are you hearing about the list of the recent places he visited? >> reporter: well, understandably intelligence agencies within the various different spread-out countries are trying to understand exactly why he may have visited their respective countries. was he just undertaking normal terroristic activities or something ominous to all of this? if we look to his travels the last two or three years he goes to egypt and greece and visits
3:09 am
to the balkans and also made trips to bulgaria where they are reporting he a had a deep question of their history. he made two trips to turkey in 2016, one of them lasting up to 43 days. he went to pakistan in october of 2018. cnn spoke to the owner of the hotel where he stayed who remembers him say he was a normal tourist and seemed to particularly enjoy the local fair. by his own admission within that hate-filled manifesto, he does say that throughout the course of his travels during a period in 2017, his perspective began to shift, especially following the stockholm attack whe. why did he go to all of these locations?
3:10 am
is there some sort of connection? was he doing some sort of research? he does seem to have developed a deep curiosity about history in the area and especially countries like bulgaria and turkey, the history of the empire. on his rifle and weaponry described figures and symbols but the names of some individuals who were quite famous within history as having fought against the empire. at this stage, everyone looking into this to build a figure how this individual was filled with so much hate and exactly how his travels tie into that. >> arwa damon, we appreciate the insight. thank you so much. as this attack happened, the shooter allegedly streamed the video on facebook. it was then copied and shared, reshared thousands of times. facebook now says that they were able it block 1.2 million of
3:11 am
those videos as they were uploaded but another 300,000 were removed after they were shared. facebook new zealand said out of respect for the victims, they also deleted versions of that video that had ed eted oited ou murders. stay with us. a question this morning. serious question. did joe biden just accidentally reveal his plans to run for the white house? a bit of a verbal slip-up, perhaps? a lot of people were cheering it on, though. we will show you what happened. senator amy klobuchar with her take on the beto o'rourke line from the vanity fair. why people thought she wasn't in the position she is in today. >> i wasn't born to run, but i am running. approved alli®. for every 5 lbs you lose, alli® can help you lose two to three more by preventing about 25% of the fat you eat from being absorbed. for the only fda-approved otc weight loss aid, try alli®.

3:16 am
announcement last night. >> so was the form earl vice president's slip just the biggest hit yet he is actually going to run in 2020? you be the judge here. here is arlet signs. >> reporter: joe biden walked up to the edge almost announcing a presidential bid here in his home state of delaware. you heard those other delaware democrats who were urging him he should enter the 2020 race. take a listen to what he had to tell the crowd when he almost let it slip that he is going to jump in the 2020 race. >> criticized by the new left. i have the pro progressive record for anybody who would run. anybody who would run. >> reporter: you heard joe biden catch himself a little bit there saying he was talking about
3:17 am
anybody who would run. but the former vice president really offered a bit of a preview of a message he could bring to a presidential campaign, saying that the nation is currently engaged in mean and petty politics and that americans need to rise above that and remember who they are as a country. he was saying that this is a battle for the soul of america. we will see if this is test driving that but see if any further message in an announcement in a few weeks. >> joining me now is cnn political analyst julian zeleny and commentator writer and editor for the washington examiner, siraj hasmi. siraj, let me start with you. we got this slip. i can't see my air quote through the box! slip. >> yes. >> in front of a friendly crowd there in delaware. last week, you had i may need your energy to a firefighters union that was very friendly. he is in, right? essentially these slips aren't really slips. he is just kind of taking a slow
3:18 am
walk to the announcement? >> yeah. it's not a matter of if. it's a matter of when he was going to jump into the race. joe biden has been leading in the polls in iowa and he is very competitive in new hampshire, you know, this is his time to run. you know? everybody thinks 2016 was his time to run. it probably could have been. i mean, there is definitely a giant hole that the democrats need to fill, especially in that moderate independent lane for joe biden to run for president. while he says he is the most progressive, truth be told, i mean, he still is probably -- he is kind of all over the map in terms of where he stands in the democratic field. and he indicators to a lot of people in middle america and particularly the rust belt states that hillary clinton lost in 2016. >> all right. julian, let me come to you. it's been exactly one month since cnn published the op-ed you wrote, why joe biden
3:19 am
shouldn't run for president and i want this to marinate a little while while we discuss this. long enough. you wrote this. a month now of consistently topping the polls and new candidates coming in, you still think he is wrong for democrats in 2010? >> i think there are risks with it. i think he has run before and when he has run, he's had a lot of problems generating the kind of support that he needs and he is not there yet. now he faces a very different democratic party that is eager for new voices and new faces, and so this will be another problem that he faces. >> we are focusing on the back half of the sentence where he says running for the united states president. the first half, he says he is
3:20 am
the most progressive -- has the pro progressive record of anybody running. julian, how does that -- i mean, just square up to his actual record? because analysis shows he is quite moderate. >> yeah. he doesn't. there is many issues where he is going to face a lot of criticism from the left. his record on crime legislation, his record on race relations, his record with anita hill and clarence thomas. he is progressive on certain economic issues but looking at the field, he is not elizabeth warren, for example. >> all right. siraj, senator amy klobuchar, yesterday, she said this. let's play it. >> i am someone that believes that we can bridge this this rural and urban divide. >> bridging the rural and urban divide. now that is her appeal likely as a candidate to some democrats,
3:21 am
but what are the indicators that democrats, considering the issues that are energizing a lot of the base, a lot of the party, the indicators that they will be able to do that? >> yeah. i mean, they do need a candidate who has won a statewide election and got a lot of these rural counties that amy klobuchar did and she did well in counties that president trump won in 2016 and her 2018 midterm election for senate. she is a great candidate on paper but when you put that in the practice she has come under scrutiny how she treats her staff and tried to spin it in a way she, you know, says she is tough, especially if she has to deal with somebody like russian president vladimir putin but the urban appeal is what democrats are lacking right now and it's a glaring hole that happened in 2016 and that has been the point of recovery. if you saw in the rust belt states like pennsylvania and michigan and wisconsin, the gop
3:22 am
got slaughtered there in 2018. there is definitely potential there if they are able to get the right candidate who can bridge that divide. >> senator klobuchar sat down with nbc and part of that interview will air this morning and she played off a bit of the "vanity fair" cover story on congressman o'rourke when he says he was born to be in it. watch this change and we will talk about it. >> you made a reference to born. do you feel born to do this? >> oh, that is the beto line! >> it was but you brought it up. just curious. >> i will say that, you know, i have a lot of respect for beto and it's great to have some texas in this race. but, no, i wasn't born to run for office just because growing up in the '70s in the middle of the country, i don't think many people thought a girl could be president. i wasn't born to run, but i am running. >> julian, how problematic was
3:23 am
that line? you got democrats now considering the most diverse field ever for the candidacy of either party for president and answering questions or considering questions, a privilege and an opportunity. for him to say i was born to be in it, how problematic could that be? >> it was a terrible line and i thought klobuchar was very effective there getting to this question. it's problematic for any candidate to start by saying i was born to do this. but given the field for a white male to say that in a moment the party is asking questions about diversifying really fell flat and that combined with questions of his substance, i think, undercut some of the excitement of the rollout of one of the more promising candidates or so it looked a few months ago. >> all right. siraj, o'rourke has jumped in. i don't know if we can say that vice president biden has put a foot in or a toe in, but he is
3:24 am
walking toward the candidacy. there is a piece out this weekend in the post by stacy abrams and her coming into this field. could she change the field and change the dynamics dramatically if she were to come in? >> not entirely. you know? stacy abrams brings something to the table and talks about voter suppression and depressing issue but rallying candidates don't n use that as a way to get into office. she lost by a point and a half to the sitting governor in georgia but needs to be considered a viable candidate for the presidency. if she runs against david perdue who more or less aligned himself with president trump in recent years through trying to push legislation like the rays act is
3:25 am
a tough immigration proposal, you know, a good window for her to capture that seat in 1920 given the -- >> why does stacy abrams have to win a statewide race to be considered a candidate for the president and beto o'rourke does not? >> oh, no. i make the same criticism for beto o'rourke too. he didn't win texas in 2018, so that criticism of stacy abrams also applies to beto o'rourke and i don't think he is a viable candidate as well. >> we got tulsa gabbart and pete buttigieg and castro. >> a lot of names on there. >> a lot of names. thank you both so much. what does the rise of hate around home mean at home?

wrongful death suit against the retail store and dealer who sold the firearm, and also against the gun manufacturer bush master and its parent company remington who argued they were protected from civil responsibility through federal law. plaintiffs lost against those gun manufacturers at the trial level, so they appealed to the connecticut supreme court, which just ruled that families can go forward against the gun manufacturers but on only one thoroug thorough, that marketing of the ar-15 caused or contributed to the deaths of so many. remington tells cnn it is their policy to not comment on pending litigation. after the decision, plaintiffs did speak out. >> they have said today that the gun industry may bear certain responsibilities to provide a solution to this epidemic that we have, and it could start with

responsible marketing. >> reporter: plaintiffs argue the ar-15 was designed as a military weapon and has always excelled on the battlefield. they cite bushmaster's 2012 product catalog that shows military holding the weapon with the narrative, "when you need to perform under pressure, bushmaster delivers." defendants know as a result of selling ar-15s to the market, individuals unfit to operate these weapons gain access to them. plaintiffs, however, do not include the fact that in that marketing, bushmaster also focuses on the civilian recreational market, long-range shooting events. a trade association for the firearms industry says the ar-15 platform rifle is widely owned by americans who use them for target shooting, competitive shooting, hunting, and self-defense. the families of children lost

visualize so here is a video to show you a perfect example of this. this is in wisconsin. here you can see the bridge and notice to the left, that is all of the ice chunks, the snow and even debris that has kind of trapped itself up against the bridge. and in the background, unfortunately, that water begins to flow into the community which is the last thing you want to have. the problem is it's not just in that particular area. much of the midwest has had an abnormally high amount of snow this winter. take, for example, lincoln, nebraska, 33 inches above average for the year and omaha and 20 inches above average for the season. the snow has to go somewhere. we still have a little bit of snow melt and rain in the forecast and places like iowa and illinois and stretching over into indiana and ohio. it may not be much. at best, maybe a quarter of an inch of rain, maybe an extra inch of snow. that is it. the problem is it's on top of all the stuff that has already

fallen. you have nearly 300 rivers that are above flood stage right now so it doesn't take much to exacerbate and make those worse. the problem is even though the main focus is in the midwest for right now, all of that water has to go somewhere. it it's going to ooevenl flow to missouri and new orleans will see flooding and take a few weeks to get down there. unfortunately, you have a lot of warmth in these places expected the next few days so you'll get rapid melting which often triggers flash flooding very quickly. >> wow. big problems ahead. we will be thinking about them. thank you, allison. shout-out to haley. her graphic game is strong with that ice jam. >> she knows you set the bar high. >> the bar is raised every time you are on! thank you both! >> can't wait to see what they come up with. what we love about march
