tv New Day Weekend With Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul CNN March 17, 2019 4:00am-5:00am PDT
but we are just really, really happy to be going dancing! >> a bottle shower afterwards. incredible moment for monarchs. brackets announced at 6:00 eastern tonight. we want you to join us and go to cnn.com/brackets and take us on, take us down. it's always fun. >> you'll take me down. >> i get to the first couple of rounds but after that, i'm not so great. >> thank you, coy. >> announcer: this is cnn breaking news! good morning. we are so grateful to have you here bus. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. kirsten gillibrand has entered the 2020 race for president. >> she just put out a video called "brave wins." and makes her the latest contender of a crowded field. 13 now if you count mayor pete
buttigieg who is still exploring a run. athena jones is with us live. what are you hearing? good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. that's right. kirsten gillibrand the senator from new york making it official and formally announcing she is throwing her hat in the ring to become a democratic nominee in 2020. deb a major part for her candidacy in the opening weeks of her campaign week, she announced an exploratory committee in january and been in there exploratory phase. part of her major argument has been that she beat the odds back in 2006 when she first ran for congress. she won a reliably red district, a district where republicans outnumber democrats 2-1. so they tells that story to show that she can appeal to voters across the aisle and that she is going to try to win voters everywhere. she is also touted her record as the strongest anti-trump voting record of anyone running and
it's clear from her video that she -- this next phase she is going to be taking this fight directly to trump. watch. >> our anthem calls america the home of the brave. but we don't realize that the lyrics first pose it as a question. say does that star spangled wave over the home of the free and home of the brave. it asks will brave win? it hasn't always and it isn't right now. brave doesn't pit people against each other. brave doesn't put money over lives. brave doesn't spread hate. clout truth, build a wall. that's what fear does. we need to remember what it feels like to be brave. we launched ourselves into space and landed on the moon. if we can do that, we can definitely achieve universal
health care. we can provide paid family leave for all. and end gun violence. pass a green new deal. get money out of politics. and take back our democracy. none of this is impossible. americans are brave every day. the father risking his job to fight for his family. a mom taking on 6:00 a.m. shifts and 6:00 p.m. classes. the formally well-behaved women speaking up and neighbors linking arms. they are making a choice and it's these brave choices that inspire me to take on the fight others won't. when i voted against the wall street bailout and both parties threw billions at the banks, when i took on the pentagon to end sexual assault in the military, when i turned a red district blue against all odds, when i challenged congress by making my meetings, finances and taxes public so people could see i was working for them.
i took your lead. i chose brave too. we need a leader who makes big, bold, brave choices. someone who isn't afraid of progress. that is why i'm running for president. and it's why i'm asking you for your support. our anthem asks a question, forcing every generation to make a choice. will brave win? >> will brave win? >> will brave win? >> will brave win? >> let's answer for ours. ♪ >> reporter: so there is senator gillibrand making that announcement and making a swing in early states in the coming days. one thing we should bring up, as of right now she is in the low single digits in many polls and one of the issues she has run into recently is you saw the reference in that video to
fighting to prevent or combating sexual assault in the military. well, she has been known as kind of the me too senator, leading the charge against sexual assault on college campuses in the workplace, in the military. but she just recently faced her own sort of mishandling, accusation is she mishandled a sexual harassment allegation in her own senate office. so that is something she has had to deal with the last week. so that kind of damages it a little bit, her argument as the me too senator looking out for women in the workplace. now she is going to be hitting the campaign trail again. she spent the weekend in new hampshire and heads to michigan tomorrow and in iowa in a swing in eastern iowa through many counties that barack obama won but that the trump then flipped. then she will also be going on to nevada and she will be wrapping up this first big official week in the campaign with a speech in new york, here in new york next sunday in front of the trump international
hotel. so she is going to be taking the fight quite literally to his doorstep in a way. it's not where he lives but it is one of his properties right here near us in columbus circle with a big speech that is going to feature gun activists and dreamers and highlight this theme she is running on of bravery and the willingness to fight what is right. >> thank you, athena jones. what does senator gillibrand bring to the field? let's bring in cnn political commentator and host of the podcast "you decide." errol louis, welcome. will brave win is the line from the video that the senator just released. how does she line up with the rest of the field? >> well, she not polling very well as athena points out but an early arrival into a kind of democrat we are seeing more and more of. she flipped a seat in 2006. it wasn't that easy to do and a very vote getter among the
people who vote republican and had higher vote totals in her reelect last year than our sitting governor andrew cuomo so she is one of those democrats who is not afraid to work across the aisle and pull voters to her side but that doesn't get a lot of attention when you have so many progressives who are grabbing the spotlight but she has always been sort of a diligent worker and something else she has no other candidate can say she has built this entire franchise what she calls getting women off the sidelines. she has been supporting women candidates at every level of government all across the country for years. you do that for around a decade and you've got allies in places that many of us don't even know about because unless you scour her list year after year who she has been supporting for and showing up and making appearances for you don't know the network she has built so we will see if she can put that network to work for her. >> this is something that struck me is the way she announced at
the at the end of the day was so smart. they didn't get up in a podium in front of people' used a speech. she used a video that can go viral and has graphics and other voices and video and all of these elements that will support what she is saying and her message is a very strong one. errol, do you think we may some of these other people who are still on the sidelines making their decisions, that they may try to dole out something similar? you have people who can watch it again and again. >> this is a new style we have seen for major candidates running for offices and races for congress where you start with a video, you try to make it go viral, you follow up with a big rally. hers is apparently in the building behind me, the trump international hotel right behind me in this picture. maybe she is going to try to fill the square and put 10 or
20,000. we have a new metric how much you can raise in the first days after both your announcement and your first rally so this first week is going to be really important for her. i will tell you something -- knowing her for more than a decade now, senator gillibrand doesn't leave anything to chance. she is methodical and thoughtful and makes checklists and double-checks the checklists and i think she will make the best case she possibly can including all of the metrics including the video you just reference. >> we pointed out she less 1% in the latest national poll in cnn's latest statewide poll. where is the support across the new york congressional delegation? she doesn't have, as i've learned, maybe that will change, an endorsement from another member of the state congressional delegation. you know statewide politics. congressman o'rourke just got two endorsements from
congressman maloney and congresswoman rice out of new york. where is hers? why isn't she getting that support? >> very good and legitimate question. i think it shows that she is not part of the sdaeblet here and that is actually true. of all the major politicians out of the new york whether you're talking about chuck schumer and they have out of the city and she is not from the city. she is from upstate new york and a different part of the state and has a different kind of profile and not an active party loyalist and not sticking her party into all positions all over the state here and i think is shows. the donor class was very upset about her. the establishment tried to snuff her out when she was first named in a special election to fill a vacancy. this was the seat that was formally held by bobby kennedy and thought that the seat should go to one of his daughters, that it should go for a candidate she kind of did an end run around the establishment and they have
been mad at her ever since. >> we have been this announcement this morning and this accidental announcement possibly last night. look at this. >> i know criticized by the new left. i have the most progressive record of anybody who is running -- anybody who would run. of anybody who would run! >> errol, i see you kind of chuckling and he is doing the whole, yes, i just did that. he has called himself a gaffe machine. your take on this. >> that is joe biden in a nutshell. he has the best name recognition and a very progressive record and a record he can defend and also a tendency to put his foot in his mouth and he did both of those things all at once. so, you know, his perhaps now
inevitable entry into the race is going to be accompanied by a lot of that sort of stuff. there are going to be serious questions asked of him, progressives who don't know his history when they start finding out where he has been on certain issues like the 1994 bill that sort of hobbled hillary clinton in the 2016 race. he has to answer for that. and the gaffes will, in fact, keep coming and that will always draw the media but it will also draw his critics. >> it will draw his critic but makes him enduring to some people. >> it does, it does. errol louis, thanks so much. >> thank you. in new zealand, there are more people that have died now. we have a new number for you in the fight there. the prime minister vowing to change the country's gun laws and to do so immediately. in fact, a meeting on that tomorrow. how she says she is going to make that happen. >> president trump is attacking the late senator john mccain
seven months now after his death and the senator's daughter is not staying quiet about it. she is quick for fire back at the president. we will tell you what she said. in colorado, and 11 other states, want to change the way presidential candidates are elected, so it's based on the popular vote. we are going to talk about this. you wouldn't accept an incomplete job from any one else. why accept it from your allergy pills? flonase sensimist relieves all your worst symptoms, including nasal congestion, which most pills don't. and all from a gentle mist you can barely feel. flonase sensimist.

meeting. joining us from christ church is cnn correspondent martin savidge. a lot of healing today, martin, and as we heard from the prime minister, some changes are coming and soon. >> reporter: right. the prime minister has been adamant that gun laws have to change in this country. i should point out if you do not know, the gun laws in new zealand are fairly liberal, at least when you compare to other nations in the region here. part of that is because hunting and outdoors event is just such a huge part of society here, but now in the aftermath of this horrendous attack which has just stunned new zealand to its very core, the prime minister says that change has to happen and in fact, she will begin that process as soon as tomorrow with cabinet meetings and it's quite clear that at least with the initial attitude of the public, many people believe the same thing. talking about the funerals. you know the muslim tradition in
that faith is to bury people as quickly as possible but you also have a criminal investigation that is ongoing. authorities here have been extremely sensitive to that and they are releasing the bodies and funerals have already begun. one of those who has attended is fareed who is not only a mourner, he is a survivor of the linwood mosque attack, a second mosque that was struck. he talks about his struggle with the emotions since the funerals began. >> 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 -- >> have you been to a funeral this morning? >> yes, i have. >> reporter: and whose funeral was that? >> so just a close friends and family friends that passed away, deceived. and it was even difficult even
to go for the funeral. there were still speck laulatio maybe somebody is watching us or shoot us at the funeral because we are muslims. >> reporter: that sense of shock is still one that is that it could happen again and more police presence is out in the streets in general starting tomorrow and around the mosques in this country. on a personal note, i was on vacation in new zealand as recently as last sunday. it's a wonderful country with wonderful people and i left with the sense that what is so great about this is nothing tragic would ever happen here. now just a couple of days later, it has. and that whole belief that so many new zealanders have that they were somehow immune to the rest of the world's tragedies
has been shattered. back to you. >> we know it changes things. it changes mindsets and it changes people. martin savidge, such good points to make. thank you very much. >> we are learning more about this gunman and the countries he visited before the mosque attacks. there is a long list. apparently he took repeated trips to the balkans and visited greece and turkey and pakistan and north korea. let's talk about those travels. joining us now is cnn national security analyst sean turner area former communications director for the national intelligence. sean, welcome back. >> thank you. >> on the travels, give us an idea on the work being done to inform that the travels that prepared this alleged shooter for what happened. >> typically when we have an incident like this occur we take a lot of time and effort and we get the online communication of these individuals and the individuals they were in touch with. these travels, the revelation that this individual traveled
internationally so much gives us a whole different perspective. what the intelligence community is working together with law enforcement to do right now is to take a look at that eye titiy where he went and the individuals he connected with and spoke with and what they are really looking for is more information to help understand where he true his motivation from. when he went to those various places, you know, what did he do in the online community as he was out there in those comu communities engaging with other people and what that rhetoric looks like. the idea you build a pirp of what happened to this individual as he went through that process of becoming radicalized and eventually acting out in the horror way he did. >> there is reporting out this weekend, namely, about "the washington post" how little the allies share domestic terror threats. we know allies share information
about international terror threats through the fly-byes and u.s. and new zealand and australia in that group. why so little sharing about those internal threats? >> well, as you pointed out, victor, it has traditionally been the case in the five i.c.e. group that the intelligence community shares information related to international terror groups. that happens for a couple of reasons. the first reason is that those are the groups that typically represent the most significant threat to our collective national security. and so that is kind of the natural area where you want to share information. the other reason is that there are different set of laws and authorities that allow the u.s. intelligence community and foreign intelligence communities to look at international terror threats in comparison to those laws and authorities that allow them to look at domestic terror threats. so both of those factors have been -- have impacted this a little bit. now we know it's the case that for the most part these domestic
terror groups live in an online environment so we have to take a step back and reframe, reshape the way we look at this in order to share information better. this is an area where we do need to improve and i think that what we need to do is we need to take a look at the way we share international terror information and apply that model to domestic terror because as we know, these individuals no longer operate just inside the borders of their own country. they are looking for inspiration and looking for guidance and looking for a common purpose in groups in other countries. >> so, obviously, the real and recent consequences of domestic terror, considering what happened in new zealand, would suggest that expansion of sharing that information but when we have, on the other hand, what we heard from the president on friday when asked if white nationalism is a growing global threat, he says he does not believe that. do you expect this will be even with an example from new zealand, a priority for this administration? >> well, you know, that is a
very good point. look. i think the president has an understanding that when he speaks and he tells us what he believes, what the president is really doing for you and for me, for the american public, for law enforcement, and for international partners and allies, he is telling us what his priorities are. so when the president says he does not think that the rise of hate groups and the rise of white nationalist groups is a real issue, he is telling us that that is not a priority for him. now that is, obviously, a problem because all of the data suggests these groups are on the rise and they should be a priority for the president. i think that what we hope to see, both in our domestic law enforcement, as well as in our international relationships and intelligence sharing relationships, is we hope to see that people will say, look, we are going to pay attention to the numbers, these incidents are on the rise, and we are going to treat them as a priority. whether you're here in the united states or a member of one of the countries that we are partners or allies with, this
impacts us on a daily basis. so we need to see them focus on it as a priority. >> shawn turner, thank you for joining us this morning. >> thanks, victor. we will get another perspective on that question. what does the rise of hate and the growth of domestic terrorism around the world mean here at home? 2010 presidential candidate senator amy klobuchar will join jake tarp this morning on "state of the union" on cnn at 9:00 a.m. apparently president trump is not done criticizing john mccain, months after his death. mccain's daughter was quick to slam the president right back. we will details for you next. colorado and 11 other states are looking to make history. they want to change the way presidential candidates are elected. so it reflects the will of the people. but is this constitutional? what if numbers tell only half the story? at t. rowe price, hundreds of our experts go beyond the numbers to examine investment opportunities firsthand.

30 minutes past the hour. welcome back on sauna sunday morning. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. not in green. >> i wasn't going to say it. >> you didn't text this morning and coy didn't text this morning. >> sorry. >> we are down a rabbit hole. president trump, he was back on twitter yesterday. he took a shot at john mccain, seven months after the senator passed away. he tweeted this. now, mccain's daughter meghan was quick to fire back here. cnn sarah westwood is live from the white house. sarah, i think a lot of people are wondering what does it serve the president at this point to resurrect this? >> that is a great question.
>> reporter: meghan mccain was among not pleased with the president's attacks on the late senator john mccain and responded on twitter writing the following. just for a little bit of context. trump went after mccain for his role in spreading what was then the largely unverified steele dossier paid by democrats and mccain associate passed that document along to a budfeed reporter that published the document and mccain has acknowledged passing the dossier on to the fbi. jeb bush, a former trump primary opponent told cnn that he hopes the president can remove away from this. >> i pray for president trump every day. my prayer is that he wakes up someday soon and realizes he is
president of the united states. he is not running for office. he is not -- he has to lead for all of us. >> reporter: yit stretches back to the presidential race when trump said he did not believe john mccain, a former p.o.w., was a war hero. he said he liked people that weren't captured and, of course president trump never forgot the case that mccain cast a vote against the health care package in 2017 so the president reprising attacks on senator mccain seven months after his death. >> sarah westwood for us there at the white house, thank you. listen to this. colorado could be part of a voting history in 2020. colorado joins 11 others that have done the same thing hoping
the final outcome of the presidential election will reflect the will of the people. errol louis host of "you decide" podcast is back with us. t >> what colorado is trying to do is to avoid the onerous process. what they are trying to do i guess have it both ways which is to say if and only if the vote turns out a certain way, colorado will cast its votes with whoever wins the majority vote. change in the constitution would require three-quarters of the states so each have a different referendum to put it on the ballot and you have to get congress to vote for it, so an easier way to yet where they want to be this which is the electoral link up than in recent years. >> you have to have enough
states to join in this to contain 270 electoral votes and colorado 181 and we understand new mexico may be next. a fight. on county commissioner trying to get something on the ballot to take this away. if that number 270 is reached, let's talk about the political fights that that is going to cause, because this does not have one republican -- one ounce of republican support in colorado. >> that's right. there will be a huge partisan fight and also a fight from people who for nonpartisan reasons, i put myself in this category, think it's a great idea to turn the presidential contest into a scramble for majority votes. it would really sort of throw off a system that has built up over time in which we have something like 5,000 separate elections. each county runs its own elections in almost every state and in some cases, they have
widely different rules and different laws, and we have seen in north carolina, recently, it can really, really throw things off if people are not diligent and not up to the task of running a fair election. imagine trying to do that 5,000 times all at the same time. who is going to monitor it and who is going to keep track of it and who is going to do a recount if god forbid that should become necessary. the people pushing for a popular vote is the deciding factor in picking a president tend to be frustrated democrats but i don't think they want to open up that box, that can of worms. >> do you think coming at this point -- i know this fight has been going on for a while and seems to be picking up steam. is this their direct indictment of president trump saying hillary clinton won the popular vote and what we need to get back to and seems that is why where they are going with this. >> it sticks in their craw and a point that was bound to come to a head.
the reality i think we haved 19, possibly 20 presidents elected with less than 50% of the vote. it happens. it happened to jfk and woodrow wilson and it happened with abraham lincoln. this is a feature of our system that has been around for a long, long time. simply trying to win the next election by changing the rules in such a fundamentally irreversible way, i think, they have to be really, really careful what they think they want. >> let me ask you this. hypothetically, let's say it would happen. would that change the way candidates would campaign? wouldn't they be going to the most populous states than what is the protocol right now? >> exactly right. frankly after 30 plus years of doing journalism in new york, this would the state they would
come and the last thing you want, we have already given you a president, we gave you both of the major party candidates in 2016, we have got 3 of the 9 supreme court justices all just from new york city. i don't think you want the donors and the people to all come from such a small area. it's just not good for democracy. it's not the way the system was set up. believe me, the founders who were sitting in new york frankly when they were drafting a lot of the constitution, they anticipated this and that is why they set up an electoral college system. people should not likely want to disframe what the founders of the constitutional had in mind. >> thank you, errol louis. >> thank you. coming up a comment controversy. jeannine pirra is off the air at fox news because of her islamo

[ singing in spanish ] this week's horrific hate-driven massacre in new zealand has a lot of people asking critical questions this morning. is white supremacy a rising global threat and are tech companies doing enough to stop it? >> the attacker's manifesto is shedding new light on what is an epidemic and what our next guest calls it a drive of extremist. i don't really call him a guest. he is host of "reliable sources" brian stelter. the quest of what media companies are doing about this, brian, to stop potentially these
live videos and keep this trash off their sites. >> white supremacy terrorism is a growing threat and a article on cnn.com that proves it very clearly. regard to the social networking companies. i don't want to put all of the blame on the tech giants because a lot of these issues are deeper than the technology. but the tech websites, facebook and google lie this to spread and be amplified all around the world and a problem these companies say they are trying to address. we received some really interesting new information from facebook overnight saying that there were attempts to post more than 1.5 million copies of that massacre video. as we know, the gunman, the suspect in new zealand live streamed his attack and then copies of the video were circulated around the web. according to facebook, 1.5 million attempts were made to repost it presumably by other people who wanted to share it.
facebook said it was able to catch most of those and take them down right away and goes to show the scale of the problem. you have initial live stream and all of these attempts to repost it later. frankly that is a part of supply and demand problem and lots of people were interested in seeing the shooting video and a problem deeper than facebook or youtube. they have the power to amplify messages that i think is an ongoing concern, both among regulators in washington and trial keep the impulse from being shared with everybody around the world. >> is there enough machinery or human bodies to filter that through. i want to ask you about fox news host jeannine pirro after making
