tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  June 27, 2016 9:00pm-10:01pm PDT

9:00 pm
>> that's it for us tonight. that's why i'm clapping. we'll see you tomorrow night. our live coverage continues with max foster in london. good night. hello and welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm max foster outside the british parliament here in london, where it's just turned 5:00 on tuesday morning. >> and i'm amara walker in los angeles where it's 9:00 monday night. and this is "cnn newsroom." ♪ the british prime minister
9:01 pm
says he has no plans to stop britain from leaving the eu. but he's still heading to brussels where he'll meet with the leaders of the bloc. his country just voted to leave, in fact. back in london, the opposition labor department continues to unravel in a full-on revolt against the leader. the economic outlook suspect improving either, as standard and poors downgraded the uk's credit rating, adding to another nightmarish day in the world markets. eu leaders will be convening in brussels in the coming hours. nic robertson is tracking the latest developments for us. what we're hearing in london, nic, those leaders there will not agree to what london wants, which is some sort of prenegotiation ahead of that
9:02 pm
exit process. >> reporter: yeah, max, that's right. david cameron is going to arrive here after lunchtime and he'll have bilateral meetings, one with the european commission president. he'll meet with the european council president. he may have other one on one meetings. but the message has been very, very clear from the european leaders. david cameron or any of his represents cannot walk into brussels and expect to go into a little side room and talk to the germans about how this part of the deal may work and the french about how this part of the deal may work, and what they may want on the table here and what the, you know, all these sorts of things. they've been told that is off the table. there will be no negotiations whatsoever on britain's exit from the european union of any description, shape or form until britain triggers article 50. then the process can begin, that two-year process, what could be
9:03 pm
a two-year process will begin. so he'll come here today. i think we can expect him to say pretty much what he said yesterday, that he will explain his regret over the outcome of the vote, of why they took the vote. that this is the democratic will of the british people. that the government is obligated to fulfill that, that the conservative party is electing a new leader. and there the line ends for david cameron, because they know here in brussels he cannot guaranty and speak authoritat e authoritatively about anything that comes after when he is replaced and what the plan of the new british government is going to be. so there will be a limit as to what he can talk about here from his own perspective. but they've already laid very clear ground rules, as you say. there's going to be no talking on the margins at all about the shape and form of the deal ahead of getting the real deal done, max. >> anyone that's likely to replace david cameron, though,
9:04 pm
certainly from the leave side, suggesting that they're not going to start this two-year process until they have to. because that effectively starts the clock ticking. and you get to the end of that two-year process, the europeanks do what they like. so we're not going to get a situation with any sort of negotiation. it could be complete deadlock, couldn't it? >> reporter: there is a potential for that. and of course, you know, we've said so many times in recent days uncharted territory, and it does depend on who the conservatives pick as their new leader. the two names in the running as the man who is pushing and leading the leave campaign, boris johnson, the former mayor of london, and theresa may, the current home secretary, who was loyal to david cameron, loyal to the remain campaign, and is seen by some conservatives as being more of a unifying figure. so she may present a different face for the european union and
9:05 pm
she may want to take a different approach about when to trigger article 50, opposed to boris johnson. that's going the depend for her or for him what the will and the mood of the conservative party is. i think they're only beginning to figure that out, max. so that's the problem for the eu chiefs here. you have the president of france, francois hollande, who yesterday said look, you know, britain needs to get on with triggering article 50. he's got elections next year. his concern about the level of disfaction of the voters in france. so they don't -- for him he doesn't want to see this process drawn out. so that's what david cameron and the future british prime minister is going to be up against. it's going to be up against the real political needs of the other european leaders, to get this job started and done. so there's no fraying at the
9:06 pm
edges of the european union, which is ultimately their big concern. >> nic, thank you very much indeed. also another contender surfacing in the british newspapers today, jeremy hunt suggesting his solution might be a second referendum. so getting more complex all the time. the asian markets are responding to all of yesterday's developments. so what is the latest you're getting there? >> reporter: max, at the moment, trade here in asia is mixed. it wasn't the case earlier in the morning. the nikkei, which is in slightly positive territory, was lower this morning. so what we are seeing in asia is a lot of volatility. and the markets here are simply reacting to the nervousness and the volatility we're seeing elsewhere in the world. asia and the markets, they're
9:07 pm
struggling to find any direction on their own. what we are seeing is the asian markets taking their cue from wall street. the big story in the financial markets remains currencies. the pound took a real hammering after we got first word of brexit, and it remains within striking distance of a 31-year low. we're also keeping a close eye on the yen, and the yen continues to rise. it's not really surprising, because investors are doing what they typically do in times of uncertainty, putting money in areas they consider safe. so they're putting money in the yen, in gold. and they're putting money in the yen, what that's doing is it's not really good news for japan, for japanese exporters, because it makes their products more expensive in the world markets. and that's one of the reasons we've seen japanese auto stocks suffer over the last couple of
9:08 pm
trading sessions and one of the reasons the nikkei has been under pressure because of the stronger yen. so we are keeping a close eye on the yen, but the markets here in asia are struggling to find any clear direction. max? >> and just explain the importance of the credit rating, the uk has lost that top level of credit rating and caused a huge amount of concern in the city. in terms of economics, that really matters, doesn't it? >> reporter: it does, because what it does is it affects business confidence. and that is -- the markets just want a sense of confidence that things are going to be okay. what the markets hate is uncertainty. right now there is so much uncertainty, because there's uncertainty about britain's political leadership and future relationship with the eu. and there's so much uncertainty
9:09 pm
about asian businesses doing business in europe, whether they'll remain this or pull off. so it's no surprise that there has been a credit downgrade, not by one bank but two large banks yesterday. so that does hurt business confidence. it just has an effect, the market sentiment is down and it does lead to volatility and that's rattling markets around the world, max. >> okay. mallika, thank you very much indeed for joining us. lots to digest financially, politically here in london, across europe and the world. much more on that in just a moment. okay. we're going to stick with us.
9:10 pm
we have a guest with us. i hope i can hear you. i'm having some issues just now hearing. but explain to us the process here, because what we've got is probably an interesting moment here in westminster where the contenders for the next primariship are lining up. and one of them, jeremy hunt, is certainly floating some of his ideas in the british papers, suggesting that brin britain can have a deal with europe to have access to the common market, but would have to accept a certain level of integration around that. is a possible solution? >> i don't think this is possible at all. i don't think you get to decide whether or not you want to play again, change your mind, leave the game, and then decide what the rules are going to be. this is going to be for the european union to decide. i think what great britain or
9:11 pm
what the united kingdom has to decide on over the next few months is who is going to be the new primary. we see a political system that is essentially collapsing within the space of a few days, the british prime minister has announced his resignation. the labor party is going to vote most likely a vote of no confidence on the current leader. and so at this particular juncture, until the conservative party have decided on who is going to lead them, and it seems to me the new leader would have to be a representative of the brexit motion, it would seem unfathomable for them to go down any other road. and this is therefore a tremendous opportunity for the labor party to decide how it's going to renegotiate this particular referendum. i see a real opportunity here for a political party, in this case the labor party, to take a position in favor of the remain camp, to ask for a general
9:12 pm
election, and to ask the british people to weigh in on this through a general election and not another referendum that has already proved completely ineffective. >> it could effectively become another referendum, with one party standing up for europe. but in terms of -- we're getting down into the wields in terms of the leadership. if you're suggesting the next prime minister leads to be from the leave campaign, you're ruling out theresa may. >> i don't think this is the way to go about doing it. i think already -- and particularly from the united states, we clearly saw this as a political struggle within the conservative party, in which one particular group, the brexit group, took on the prime minister who is in the remain camp. so theresa may, for her to be appointed as the new leader of
9:13 pm
the conservative party and taking a position that was anything else but the brexit would seem completely contradictory. what's happened here is that the british people are beginning to realize what in fact they didn't vote for, they didn't vote for exiting the european union. this was a referendum on the status, on the state of britain today. much in the same way the u.s. election is being shaped by these kinds of questions. it wasn't about europe. it was an opportunity to express a whole range of feelings about the way in which britain was going in the direction in which it was heading. now that this particular vote has taken place, nobody knows what to do. first of all, nobody has ever asked to leave the european union. so legally, strategically, no one knows how to go about doing this. and i think britain first of all needs to figure out what's going on within great britain before it can begin the process of seeking a new relationship oar redefining its relationship with the european union.
9:14 pm
>> what do europeans do in the meantime then? understandably they just want to get on with this negotiation process, they have to move forward with this, but what option do they have but to wait for london to find a new leader and instigate that two-year process? >> i think the fact that the six foreign ministers of the original eu members met over the weekend, sent a very strong message to the united kingdom. we were there before you, and we'll be there after you. however, that's a strong measure and a strong thing to state. the fact is, the french government, facing election in 2017, are already in the guise of the far right. and it's not just the far right that is skeptical about the european union. the dutch are also talking about leaving the european union. this is an eu-wide problem.
9:15 pm
and the domino effect from the united kingdom is something the eu leaders are taking very seriously, particularly since the debate around brexit has focused on questions of migration, economic prosperity, globalization. the sorts of issues that are polarizing people throughout the european union and the united states today. it's what i've called elsewhere a war of identities. that brings together or that pits a particular vision of europe and a particular vision of the united kingdom today. and i think that's what it's really about. do we want a united kingdom that is open to the world, that tears down walls, or do we want a united kingdom that builds walls and attempts to keep people out that at the end of the day it will do nothing but shelter itself the exciting and diverse reality of the uk and the european union. >> so much diverse of opinion on this. it's very difficult for everyone involved. but certainly so much to report
9:16 pm
on this. we'll try to bring you all of the analysis as we get it. much more from london throughout the hour. right now, let's go back to amara in los angeles. >> thanks so much, max. we have a lot more news coming up on "cnn newsroom." the most significant decision from the u.s. supreme court on abortion in two decades. also, hillary clinton hits the campaign trail with a potential running mate who doesn't hold back her attacks on donald trump. >> donald trump says he'll make america great again. it's right there, no, it's stamped on the front of his goofy hat. you want to see goofy? look at him in that hat. do you really know what it means? no. the answer is no. because it's complicated and science-y. but with my nutrition mixes, you don't have to worry about the science. you can just put it in your pie hole.

9:20 pm
welcome back, everyone. u.s. senator elizabeth warren has made her debut on the
9:21 pm
campaign trail with the presumptive democratic nominee hillary clinton. she was relentless in attacking donald trump monday, showing why clinton may consider her as a possible vp pick. suzanne malveaux has the story. >> i'm with her. yes, her. >> reporter: hillary clinton and elizabeth warren joining forces today for the first time in the campaign. >> donald trump says he'll make america great again. it's right there, no. it's stamped on the front of his goofy hat. [ laughter ] you want to see goofy? look at him in that hat. >> reporter: today's event in ohio, fueling speculation that warren could be selected as clinton's running mate. the massachusetts senator using the opportunity to unleash a blistering critique of donald trump. >> what kind of a man roots for people to lose their jobs, to lose their homes, to lose their life savings? i'll tell you what kind of a man. a small, insecure, money grubber who fights for no one but himself. >> reporter: and using trump's controversial comments throughout the primary season
9:22 pm
against him. >> donald trump calls african-americans thugs, muslims terrorists, latinas rapists and criminals, and women bimbos. hillary clinton believes that racism, hatred, injustice, and bigotry have no place in our country. >> reporter: clinton voicing appreciation for warren's tenacity. >> i do just love to see how she gets under donald trump's thin skin. >> reporter: clinton is hoping that warren will also help her win over more progressive voters in the democratic party, who backed bernie sanders during the primary. the former secretary of state today striking a populist tone. >> we must have an economy that works for everyone again, not just those at the top. >> reporter: clinton and warren today sounding very much united. but that has not always been the case. warren remained neutral throughout the democratic primary fight, only endorsing
9:23 pm
clinton earlier this month. and in a 2004 interview with pbs, she criticized clinton's position on a piece of bankruptcy legislation. >> she's taken money from the groups and more to the point, she worries about them as a constituency. >> reporter: but no signs of any past conflicts between the two today, as clinton hopes she can block trump from the white house. >> i talked with several operatives who told me they were watching closely the body language between these two dynamic female leaders, watching how the crowd would respond and mindful if warren would overshadow clinton. they told me that clinton-warren pattern did not disappoint. suzanne malveaux, cnn, washington. a lot to talk about. joining us now, dave jacobson and republican consultant john thomas. welcome to both of you. dave, how much does clinton need elizabeth warren?
9:24 pm
we just heard there from suzanne malveaux that that's a risk of her overshadowing hillary clinton. but we know that elizabeth has a lot of populist appeal. does she need that from warren? >> if we were looking at polls we saw a month ago, with sort of a razor thin margin between hillary clinton and donald trump, perhaps clinton would need a hail mary pass with a game-changing endorsement like elizabeth warren. there is a lot of ground breaking appeal with the possibility of two women running for president at a time when we've only had two men who have won in america. but given the polling trends that we've seen, i'm not sure she needs that earth shattering vp added to her ticket. i do think that's why we're seeing someone like tim kaine, who is a more pragmatic swing state senator from virginia as the front runner in the vp stakes. >> trump tweeted this about elizabeth warren and mrs. clinton, "crooked hillary is
9:25 pm
bringing out one of the least productive senators in the u.s. senate. goofy elizabeth warren who lied on heritage. trump's campaign called warren a sellout for supporting clinton. we know that warren and clinton really didn't see eye to eye when it came to wall street. >> warren is a true believer of the left. hillary is a true believer in polling. look, i think i agree with dave on the vp selection. hillary clinton's selection is about optics not function. whether it's two women at the top, i'm not sure. hillary clinton doesn't have a female problem, she's doing just fine with them. she has a white man problem. those are the people that donald trump is doing well with, and hillary clinton hasn't been able to capture. so i don't think she's going to choose warren. >> i want to also get john oliver's take on this. we have to get him in here, especially about trump's reaction to the results oh it have brexit referendum.
9:26 pm
we know that warren and clinton were slamming trump on that, as well. let's listen to what john oliver, the british comedian, had to say. >> and the thing is, later that day, he tweeted, many people are equating brexit and what is going on in great britain with what is going on in the u.s. people want their country back. you might think that's not going to happen to us in america. we're not going to listen to some ridiculously haired bafoon. let britain tell you, it can happen, and when it does, there are no [ bleep ] do-overs. >> so his message is what happened there could happen in the united states. so to you, dave, you have people asking that question, does a brexit mean that trump could win the presidential election? do you think there could be a surprise waiting where he wins and we see this rebelliousness coming from the people like we saw in the uk?
9:27 pm
>> look, donald trump is full of surprises. nobody thought he would become the republican presumptive nominee. if you see the chaos we're seeing with the global financial markets post brexit, that underscores the fact that americans are tuning into this and saying that could potentially happen should donald trump win the presidency. that's why we're seeing a nosedive with his poll numbers. earlier today, there was a poll that came out showing him down 12 points. and so i think you're seeing these trends, and i think people are thinking twice about donald trump. and i think it speaks to the general electorate, versus a primary electorate. this is a guy who threw out red meat talking points that appeal to the most extreme part of the republican party that. is what propelled him to become the nominee. now that he's pivoted to the general election, he's turned off the moderate voters. >> you have to look at two key statistics. that's the right track/wrong track question. a year ago, there was only 14% for the brexit, there was 77% of
9:28 pm
uk members thought they were on the wrong track with the eu. 77%. 66% of americans think that america is on the wrong track. i think the fact is, even if, with all the economic uncertainty, voters are so frustrated. they're frustrated there and here. and they may vote just to do something, and change the status quo. and donald trump is anything but the status quo. >> so obviously a lot of parallels there, especially with the populist anger. you mentioned polls, dave. i want to show the latest poll that just came out on monday. 45% of republican voters say they are satisfied with trump as their party's presumptive presidential nominee and 52% say they prefer someone else. more republicans. on the flip side, clinton, 52% democratic voters say they are satisfied, 45% prefer someone else. so trump's unfavorability ratings are obviously higher than clinton.
9:29 pm
why are we seeing -- dave was mentioning trump's poll numbers going down against clinton nationally. why are we seeing this, and trump with the way he's -- do you think he's hurting himself? >> any other election cycle where it was an anti-establishment election, hillary clinton would be toast. but every time there's a moment where the anti-establishment candidate should rise up, orlando, brexit, donald trump steps on it. that's why. he keeps getting in his own way. but we're starting to see a shift in his campaigning. he fired his campaign manager. i think he's going to get tighter and tighter. so the polling numbers will come back. remember, it's a long time till november. >> i think he's having a unification problem. politico reported that scores of gop leaders are refusing to participate or have speaking roles at the convention, because they're afraid it will impact their ability to win their election. "the washington post" and abc news put out a poll that showed
9:30 pm
80% of democrats support hillary clinton. i think that underscores the point that she's unifying the party and that leaders and activists within the democratic establishment and the bernie sanders universe are starting to coales coalesce. >> appreciate both of you coming in. we'll take a short break. when we come back, we'll take you back to london for what more are calling the brexit hangover. broken promises, tumbling stock, the fallout over the uk's vote to leave the eu. also, los angeles wants to bring the olympics back to the united states for the first time in more than 20 years. we'll hear from the head of the bid committee. that's next. eing terrible at golf for as long as i can. new patented ensure enlive has hmb plus 20 grams of protein to help rebuild muscle. for the strength and energy to do what you love. new ensure enlive. always be you.

hello, everyone. you are watching "cnn newsroom. " >> in just a few hours, eu leaders will gather at a summit in brussels and topping their agenda is the lingering fallout from the uk's vote to leave the eu. global markets are reeling and the british pound is at its lowest level in three decades now. as clarissa ward reports, some people who voted leave might never see the promises politicians promised them. >> reporter: fear is sweeping
9:35 pm
europe over great britain's vote to leave the eu will trigger other nations to do the same. this could set off a wave of turmoil of the group of 28 nations falling apart. scotland is already threatening to break away from the uk over the brexit vote because they want to stay in the eu. secretary of state john king traveled to brussels today to discuss damage control. >> i think it's absolutely essential that we stay focused on how in this transitional period nobody loses their head, nobody goes off half cocked, people don't start ginning up scatterbrained premises. >> reporter: british politicians who campaigned for leaving the eu are already walking back a number of promises. most prominently, a pledge the leave campaign plastered on a
9:36 pm
bright red bus that exiting the eu would save britain 350 pounds a week. but in an interview with "good morning britain," the leader of the uk anti-immigration party and one of the faces of the leave campaign, conceded that probably wouldn't happen. >> the 350 million pounds a week we send to the eu, which we will no longer send to the eu, can you guaranty that's going to go to the nhs? >> no, i can't. >> reporter: the leave movement also promised it would bring immigration numbers down. but -- >> completely at odds with what -- i do not imagine that if we leave the eu, that means zero immigration, it means we will have some control over who comes in. >> reporter: what's becoming more and more clear is that the leave campaign didn't really have a plan for the day after. and while they are now stalling for time, trying to work out
9:37 pm
what a brexit will look like, european leaders are saying, don't prolong the agony. we want swift, decisive action. clarissa ward, cnn, washington. >> a professor at new york university's school of business joins us from san francisco. thanks for joining us. everyone wants a swift process to this. they don't want it to be prolonged. we're seeing the markets fall, pretty much collapse in some parts of the financial markets because of the uncertainty. but london saying they want some informal talks and the rest of europe saying, they're not going to do that. so this isn't going to be swift. there's more uncertainty. it's going to be more mess, isn't it? >> yes, unfortunately it's going to be the way you say. the europeans say we want it swiftly, but it's really up to the british to ask to leave. and if they don't ask for three
9:38 pm
months, they don't ask for three months. and then we are in limbo in the meantime. but i think that the british government has indicated that they want some informal talks so that they will know what deal they will get if they ask. and to that, the europeans have already said no. but the truth is, the british have their own problems -- sorry? >> yeah, they want the -- that's a two-year timeline for formal talks. they want to go straight into that. they don't want to have any preconditions going into that, that's the explanation for the lack of interest in informal talks. >> well, that might be a pretexturial explanation. i think most things that happen in treaties have a lot of informal work before they become
9:39 pm
treaties. i think that it's not unreasonable that the british want some informal talks. at the same time, i can see how the europeans are playing it tough at this point. but not vindictive, just tough. so that they don't give opportunities to other countries to do the same as britain. i think the most important question that is looming there is what kind of regime will britain have once it leaves the eu? will it be a regime like the one switzerland has or like the one norway has? or is it going to be much further away, like the one turkey has? so this is a crucial question. there's a lot of money involved in that question. and i don't find it surprising that people want to have informal discussions, because if in the end, britain is relegated to the position of let's say of
9:40 pm
turkey being pretty far away from the market and not having so many concessions, then i can see that a lot of british politicians will think about i again, and maybe they'll find a way to remain. they'll find a way through parliamentary maneuver or some other procedure to make sure that the brexit doesn't happen. >> okay. nicholas, thank you very much inside for joining us from san francisco. this is really turning out to be the issue here. we know that britain voted in a referendum to be in or out of the union. what they didn't vote on is what sort of system would emerge out of it. that's what all the arguments are about now. which is why they're talking about another referendum to try to resolve what sort of system comes out of this brexit. >> yeah, a lot of critics say it doesn't seem like the people were planning for what would happen after the fact. max foster, thanks for that. we'll take a short break.
9:41 pm
when we return, the highest court in the u.s. has made a major decision on abortion. we'll look at the effect it could have on other case like it next, on "cnn newsroom." ♪ what if we made a paint that was so special that was such a jewel among paints that you had to seek it out. nope, even easier than that. more like taking a left on that street where you usually take a right that wasn't so hard. and if finding that paint made you and your walls beam with pride,

9:43 pm
9:44 pm
welcome back, everyone. the u.s. supreme court has struck down a texas law that restrikes access to clinics that perform abortions. the 5-3 ruling is the most significant decision the court has made on abortion in two decades. in their opinion, the majority justices wrote the law claimed to protect women's health but in reality burdened women who sought abortions. their decision could affect similar cases going through the lower courts. let's talk more about this with lisa bloom joining me now for more on this ruling. she's a trial lawyer and legal analyst. good to have you here. >> thanks for having me. >> let's first talk about the implications of this and how significant this decision was. >> this was a monumental ruling.
9:45 pm
this is up there with roe versus wade back in the early 1970s and planned parenthood versus casey about 25 years ago, which upheld the right to have an abortion in the united states for american women, but just barely. today the court came out squarely in favor of that constitutional right and said that laws that burden that right, that impose an undue burden, those are the two most important words, undue burden, that will be struck down. >> so what were in these texas laws that would have prevented women from getting access to abortion clinics. >> what texas said is we're not trying to take away the right to choose abortion, we're trying to protect health. so we want all of the doctors to have admitting privileges and there has to be all kinds of procedures for these surgical centers. their hallways have to be a certain width and so forth. i think the message is, don't try to outsmart the justices on the supreme court. because they're going to see
9:46 pm
through a smoke screen like this. what they said is look, abortion is one of the safest procedures in america. there's almost no deaths or serious complications. other procedures like vasecto vasectomies are performed in similar centers and there are no regulations. why is it just on the abortion clinics? >> what about the other states? there are several states, particularly in the deep south, that have these kinds of rules on the books. very similar laws. does this mean that those laws are null and void? >> well, they're going to have to be challenged individually. because they're all a little bit different. the message is, if you are imposing an undue burden, those laws are unconstitutional. if women have to drive hundreds of miles, that's unfair. in this case, there were 40 clinics and it would have gone down to eight. they would have had five times as many customers. and just as ruth bader ginsburg,

welcome back, everyone. the governor of rio de janeiro is warning the upcoming olympic games could be a big failure. he's telling a global daily newspaper the state is still waiting for an $850 million bailout from the federal government. he says without that money, police patrols are likely had to stop. the governor says the subway line connecting rio with venues outside the city is still weeks away from completion. in the meantime, the city of
9:52 pm
los angeles is compete, budapest, rome to host the 2024 olympic games. here is part of their video featuring some of the city's athletes and celebrities. >> wow. 2024 -- >> um -- >> huh. >> so what do we have, eight years? >> what will i be doing? i'll be -- >> i'll be -- >> 2024? i'm going be doing what i love. >> we have some pretty weird stuff. >> in 2024, i'll be right here in the city of angels, watching the olympics. >> joining me now is gene psychiatr psyches, president of the 2024 olympic commission. good to have you on the program and g congratulations for getting this far thus far. i have to ask you about the strategy here. how do you convince the ioc that, hey, los angeles is the place to have the 2024 summer olympics?
9:53 pm
>> well, it's a good question and that's what our job is for the next almost 15 months. because the ioc makes the decision in september of 2017. and our advantages or argue argument is that los angeles is a tremendous place for the olympics for two or three reasons. one is we have the olympic dna here if los angeles. having hosted the games in 1932, in 1984. they were both very successful games. but we don't want to sit on the legacy. since 1984, los angeles has become a much more interesting city. it's really a multicultural city, perhaps the most multicultural city in the united states. we have tremendous infrastructure here so that we can actually host a no risk very financially disciplined olympics with all the existing infrastructure, arenas, staydia etcetera, that we have here.
9:54 pm
and los angeles is the center of the confluence of creativity. this is, of course, hollywood as well as technology. and silicone valley has come to hollywood has represented by so many of the things that have happened in the digital media economy in the past several years. and this is a place where that can serve the purposes of the olympic games. >> let's talk a little bit more about infrastructure. we know l.a. is a large, sprawling city. do you think that's a major advantage? and, you know, would new stadiums have to be built or transportation have to be updated if, indeed, you were to get the bid? >> if we get the bid, we don't have to build anything significant at all. the only thing we're going to build is a new slalom/canoe facility and we'll do that with a very small amount of money. it won't cost us a lot to do that. there is a new stadium coming to los angeles and that's the rams stadium which will be here in a couple of years. they'll host the 2021 super bowl in that stadium. that was never part of our plan.
9:55 pm
so that may get incorporated into our plan. it's something we can add to what we've already talked about. but that's an extra added benefit. >> i have to ask you this because this has been in the headlines for the past several weeks if not months and that's brazil's and rio's olympic games coming up in a couple weeks. we see what a mess brazil is dealing with when it comes to the political crisis, it's in a deep recession, you have zika, rampant crime. curious to know what your perspective is. a lot of people wondering will brazil be ready in had time for the respects? how concerned would you be if you're -- >> fortunately, i've met the leaders of the big committee. i think everything is going to be done, which is a great advantage. i think they'll have spectacular facilities and i think they'll actually have a wonderful games. i think the brazilian people will be incredibly hospitable. but i expect the games to be very, very well run in brazil and we're all very optimistic about having a great experience there. >> well, we wish you all the
