4:00 pm
it's 7:00. thanks for being with us. a new controversy in the political world is brewing. ahead of the 2020 bid joe biden is defending himself from a woman that said it made her feel uneasy, gross and confused. sheer lucy flores describing what happened. >> very unexpectedly and out of nowhere i feel joe biden put his hands on my shoulders, get up very close to me from behind, lean in, smell my hair and then plant a slow kiss on the temperature of my head.
4:01 pm
that might not sound like it is a very serious thing. it might sound like it was innocent and well intentioned. in the context of it as a person that had absolutely no relationship with him afterwards, as a candidate preparing to make my case why i should be elected second in command, to have the vice presidented of vice president of the united states do that and kind of out of nowhere was shocking. you don't expect that kind of intimacy from someone you have no relationship whatsoever to be so close to you in that way.
4:02 pm
i didn't know how to process it. >> we should point out he is running again. you attended a beto vent yesterday. you told us you haven't endorsed any candidate yet. how would you respond to somebody out there that says she is attending a beto rally. politics might be at least partially motivating here. what would you tell those people? >> the reason why we are having these is because he is considering running for president. frankly the reason i felt so compelled to say something is because over the years as this behavior was documented that n conversation was not coming up. >> so biden is responding. he says in many many years i have offered countless handshakes and support and
4:03 pm
comfort. not once, never did i believe i acted inappropriately. if it is suggested i did so i will listen respectfully but it was never my intention. joining me now is to david. there were plenty of photos of him hugging. do you tli biden has done enough to address this? >> not yet. the story is also building. it is a significant story. it could put a cloud over his candidacy. it is really winning out against donald trump. it comes at a significant moment. it is a significant story. i'm among those that believe he does need to apologize to hill.
4:04 pm
i think should go see hill about what happened in 1991. i think he needs to go farther. we need to put context of our own here. i have known joe biden and always found him a very emotional man who is very very affectionate. that's who he is. i know that he hasn't meant to be behaving inappropriately. when kissing a woman on her cheek and when you first meet her was not regarded as an offense. it happens frequently in terms of people meeting each other. i don't know the organizer said it never happened. the one thing i do really feel strongly about and beyond the fact that he needs to address it more seriously is this is, to
4:05 pm
say that it is disqualifying, disqualifying in the age of trump? >> well, the democrats have put themselves forward in having the moral high ground when it comes to the me too era haven't they? >> i agree with that. we are all learning a lot. i just think it needs to be seen, these acts need to be seen in the context of who he is. he has been hugging people and i know others have hugged people when they first meet them. >> i'm a hugger. >> i know. there is some innocence there in terms of greeting people. but then there's another level. >> you have been through a lot in life too. >> yeah. i hear what you're saying.
4:06 pm
they are saying it's biden being biden. he is saying if it has off fned people or made them feel uncomfortable. >> i feel especially with regard to hill needs to make a public apology and go see her. >> i want to read something trump has said about possibly running against biden. he is leading the polls right now. he is getting the highest marks when it comes to who can best take on president trefrp. he said his guests are unbereave we lk frm when biden says something dumb it is because he is dumb. what do you think it is a fight.
4:07 pm
>> i think trump is very don fi dent he can beat him. we'll wait and see. i think most of it is campaign talk and the result results will help when he can vote. >> i think some republicans were elected to go there. you don't think donald trump will be reluctant to go there. >> you don't? >> no. he goes where angels fear to tread as you well know. i don't think this is going to -- this is -- this is not going to be positive but it does open up the door for critics
4:08 pm
including those running against him to go after him. it was notable today almost every democratic talked about it and said something that had a negative complex who i is -- >> hold your thought there. we actually have sound from a number of 2020 candidates. let's listen. >> thank you. >> she said she is coming forlt now because she thinks it is disqualifying. do you think it is disqualifying? >> i think that's a decision for the vpd to make. >> i have no reason not to believe her. i think we know from campaigns and from politics that people raise issues and they have to
4:09 pm
address them. >> i think that's why we have an election. i think they would have to be heard and we should start by believing them. >> david, when you hear the culmination of those answers are they basically trying to tell biden don't get in this race? >> i think they are encouraging to stay out. i don't think they are telling him but i think they would like to have him stay out for obvious reasons. i can't emphasize enough it does seem to me having these conversations and one starts from the pop sigs women had been
4:10 pm
badly treated in the past. we do need to have better understandings among us. i hope at the same time we try do it at a sort of a measured way. most have been in public. there are pictures. we have known this far long time this who he is. >> good to have you with us. thank you very much. >> thank you. a dire situation on the u.s./mexico border worsening today as migrant centers are reaching the breaking point. we'll go live to two border cities. next the trump administration ramping up threats to shut down the u.s. border. i'll speak to the congressman. you're live in the cnn news room. was the easiest decision ever.

4:15 pm
. it cannot about policy or politics. it's about the people caught and detained. there are more of them than there are government resources to handle them. this weekend over capacity border are doing something about this problem. they are letting thousands of people out. the current situation is unsustainable. president trump is throwing out his solution, close the border. it must use strong immigration laws trying to stop to get soo the u.s.a. next step is to close the border. something else the president is doing for failing to keep people from fleeing, she cutting aid,
4:16 pm
millions of dollars from guatemala and hondurus. president trump will get a look for himself at the border situation in a few days m she planning to visit a border town when he is in california. let's go live now to el paso, texas. also martin is in brownsville. the migrant center is one of those said to be way over capacity. what's going to happen there? >> they have been saying for the last week or so they are over capacity. it is one of those areas, the el paso sector. it reaches into remote areas of new mexico that shows the numbers of migrants that have been arriving here. we saw a group of around 50 migrants being picked up by border patrol agents here in
4:17 pm
downtown el paso. this is one of bridges that takes you to juarez mexico. hundreds of migrants have been stored away under that bridge waiting to be processed. customs and border protections says it has moved the migrants to other facilities in the area that they will no longer be held under this bridge. it raises a lot of questions as to why wasn't that done initially and also leads to criticism that many act ifrists have been levying that they have creating a sense of chaos to push for national emergency and construction of more border wall. it come as the president talking about sealing off the border. thousands of people used these bridges across the border to cross back and forth daily. it will have a significant effect in ways of life down here on the border. >> let me follow up with that
4:18 pm
real fast. given the reality that you're seeing, does it jive with what we are hearing saying the system is in a free fall. we are hearing calling it a breaking point? they believe that the numbers they say they expect about 100,000 app re 100,000 apprehensions. it is the largest number they have seen in at least ten years. there is always the ability to process them thoroughly. they continue to insist it has been down here to the border. it is last week in el paso. no one really disputs the numbers they are seeing here at this point. it is clearly significant.
4:19 pm
a lot of it what has changed is the large number of groups you have seen in masked numbers. it is not uncommon to see a group of about 50. several hundred have arrived at the same time. it has lead to the overwhelming sense of what's going on down here. >> you're there at the central bus station in the city of brownsville. tell us what you have seen today and how are people moving from the crowded migrant centers on the buses and eventually on their way elsewhere? >> well, that's all being handled by ice which is immigration and customs enforcement. you have border patrol doing the same. they are putting them on buses you see it become a local
4:20 pm
problem. they have said around 2,000 have been released. there could be more to come. it is usually groups of several hundred. city officials are here as well as county. they are set up to where they receive the migrant as they come in and check documents and make sure they are in order and begin connecting them here to family members they may have in the u.s. once they can do that it is usually over the phone ten they can work out money to buy airline tilkts and bus tickets and within the same day they get most of the migrants off on their way to get with paem. if they have to keep them overnight they have shelters that are set up and have the plig here to help with transportation. it is working well so far. they fig wrur it can kos a thousand per day. it is really money they cannot
4:21 pm
afford as a problem is being dropped every day. >> thank you, guys. joining us now is congressman juan vargus. thanks for being with us. do you agree with the decision to shut down the southern border? >> it is the most id idiotic thing he said. et would be a disaster for both sides, millions of people would ultimately lose their jobs. it is really dumb. >> what do you see as the economic impact? >> in my district it would be a disaster. the busiest one in the western hemisphere. hundreds of thousands of jobs depend on that border, on that
4:22 pm
crossing. if you close it down it would be a huge kmim impact not only for my city and my area but all of california and frankly all of the united states. it really is something that's unbelievable, reckless, stupid and it is up there with some of the dumbest things he has said since he has been president. >> i know it was actually closed back in november for a few hours after a bit of a clash there along the border. i understand according to the chamber of commerce the estimated toll was $5.3 million to have that closed for a few hours. immigration is an issue that the president believes works for him politically. he has focused on it far long time. now giving the reality we are seeing a surge in migrants, the shelters above capacity, doesn't it bolster the position there is in fact a crisis? >> no. in fact he created this crisis.
4:23 pm
we have seen numbers larger than this. why were we able to handle it? the administration was working to try to handle it. he is trying to make it a crisis. she making it a crisis. every time he open his mouth they hear oh, united states, let's go. she there a sense interestingly and oddly enough getting more people to come. all of the things he is doing, as bar baric as they are is making the situation worse. i have lived on the border my entire life. we have had larger numbers. we have had more people coming. the administration hasn't been trying to make it a crisis. this has been trying to make it a crisis, trying to make it look bad. he wants this wall everybody knows won't work. >> it doesn't make sense. why are we seeing this spike in migrants now? >> well, i think there's two reasons. we have always had a spike in the spring.
4:24 pm
this is not unusual. secondly, he is talking so much about it. she like the commercial down in central america. he thinks every time he opens his mouth -- >> so you think it's backfiring? >> he is a commercial for come to the united states. every time he says something like this more people come. he is the person oddly enough he is the problem once again. >> i appreciate your perspective. thanks for being here. >> thank you. >> police say she got into the wrong car and ended up dead. the investigation into the university of south carolina student who was murdered after mistakenly getting into a car she thought was her uber. you're live in the cnn news room.

4:36 pm
about his money. it provided would inflate his net worth in order to get larger loans and smaller insurance premiums. according to the paper the trump organization would send a statement of financial condition. in 20 11 for example it stated the golf course had 55 home lots zoned to sell. a closer look revealed he only had 31 lots zoned and ready for sale. they started trump tower had 68 in reality it only had 58. he also claimed virginia vineyards had 2,000 acres and the actual number is closer to 1,200 acres. michael cohen testified his exbos inflated as well. >> i wanted to about your
4:37 pm
conversation about acid inflation. to your knowledge did the president ever provide inflated assets to an insurance company? >> yes. >> who else knows that the president took this? >> and where would the committee find more information on this? do you think we need to review his financial statements and tax returns in order to compare them? >> yes. you would find ate the trump. >> three generations. that's built an empire. how did the president get away with these exaggerations? did people believe him? >> yeah. we should remember there are lots of instances but one of the more telling ones was in the early 80s when forbes magazine
4:38 pm
was having the list of most wealthy americans. donald trump insisted he was worth more than they were saying he was worlt. the magazine thought they were doing due diligence to something that sounded more realistic. it is amazing. >> the example that you point out too, the fact that he was so upset about a publication not giving him more credit for his wealth, he actually sued somebody at the new york times
4:39 pm
for lowballing his net worth. here we come to find out it was probably more accurate than he was presenting. did people ever call him on this that were in his circle, who were helping to, you know, maneuver and move these financial statements? >> he was sued. he sued timothy o'brien for saying estimations of his wealth were hugely exaggerated. during a defrpgs he depended on his mood. that is not usually something we find own a spread sheet. >> we gave some of the examples of inak cure sis. could they legally be considered fraud? >> they could be. under federal law you an obligation to provide accurate information when you're providing to a federally
4:40 pm
chartered bank. many of the bapnks were federaly chartered. so at least in theory he could be prosecuted for this. it may be gone on a lot of these crimes. it was from 2011 most of the stat statues have to do with five year or severn year. i think they are a little late to the line. it will be hard to prosecute him. >> in some ways these falsified financial statements are a reflection of how trump operates about everything. we have talked about it over and over again, the exaggeration. >> well, it was part of the whole branding thing that he
4:41 pm
launched from the get go. he wanted to in every possible way have all of the attributes of being an enormous business m magnet. he brought an ire laairline, a football team, all of the things to make the name trump mean enormous relt, glitter, you know, just top of the top, best of the best. so exaggerating how much money he had insisting he not only belonged but he should be higher up, that they were under estimating how much he was worth. nobody else did that. everybody else was kind of quiet, reserved. not him. he called audiotape forb eric s and complain.
4:42 pm
4e it was donald trump using a different name calling up the direct the record. the idea that he would part of that big belt. >> doing that with a publication is one thing. doing it wlechb it comes to banking and lopes and insurance is another one. he called it humorous. he said the statements are kind of ridiculous. could it actually work to his benefit? >> it could. there is actually a phrase that he adopted used by lawyer. that is when you say something so obviously an exaggeration the person listening should understand that to be true.
4:43 pm
i have welcomed and endorsed this phrase. think you to very the banks were tanging in the information. i find it hard to believe these big banks couldn't figure out what trump is really worthment th worth. they were lending money to this big new york state developer and then later a tv star. so there may be some wrong doing on both sides of the loan table here. >> all right. thank you for the interesting obligation. >> nice to see you too. >> all right. who is tricky dick? a four-part series explores richard nixon's, rise, fall, come back and political destruction. that's here at 9:00 only on cnn.

4:48 pm
at bank of the west we're helping our customers drive that change. with lower rates on a car loan when you use it for an electric vehicle. find out how much you could save. at bankofthewest.com/ev . notary public more aid. the trump add minute station says it is cutting off to these countries. one house democratic aid says it could be more than $500 million. the reason? the acting white house chief of staff put it this way. >> look, there's a lot of good ways to help solve this problem. congress could do it. they are not going to. mexico could help us do it. they need to do a little bit more. if we are going to give these countries hundreds of millions of dollars we would like them to do more of that. i would respectfully submit to
4:49 pm
you it's not in a reasonable position. we could prevent a lot of what's happening by preventing people from moving into mexico in the first place. >> which bring us to your weekend presidential brief highlighting some of the most pressing issues as he starts the week. with us national security analyst helped provide the presidential daily brief under president obama. you worked on foreign assistant. >> i want to note mulvaney was directly responsible for reviewing approving and administering the assistance president trump is now cutting. i worked on it in the white house. i think it is important to foreign assistance isn't charity and it's also not a bribe for good behavior like say a hush money payment is. foreign stuftance is used to address a specific need. in the northern triangles case it's to create conditions on the
4:50 pm
ground so people don't to flee and to strengthen the capacity of local security forces so the borders in the northern triangle are secure. president trump has reportedly ordered freezing past years' funds, fiscal year '17 and '18 and a lot of state department programs are actually multiyear. what that means is programs and projects that are already under way are just not going to be completed. they'll be put on hold. what we don't know is what's going to happen with next year's budget. secretary pompeo was just on the hill defending it, and this is where congress has some leverage. they could tell the secretary that unless the administration fully restores the funding they have frozen, they're not going to move ahead with the fiscal year 2020 budget. >> the president set to meet with secretary of state mike pompeo tomorrow. any chance he changes his mind? >> i have no idea what the president is going to do. i don't think anybody does. what we know is he's a creature of habit in some ways. he's consistently undercut his own team. and this decision on the foreign assistance is no different.
4:51 pm
secretary of state pompeo, the state department website talk about how important this assistance is to combat illegal immigration and secretary of homeland security nielsen was on the ground in honduras the day president trump told pompeo to put this on hold and signed an agreement lauding the security cooperation, the work the northern triangle countries were doing to stem illegal immigration. so bruised egos aside, the president is actually degrading the ability of his cabinet officials to be taken seriously. there's no indication when they sign agreements, publish documents or say anything on his behalf that he actually agrees with what they're saying. this is going to impact their ability to do work in a variety of areas. he's doing the opposite of what they're advising and assuring there will be increased migration flows toward our southern border. he's creating a crisis there and creating a crisis with mexico. he has repeatedly insulted
4:52 pm
