board of a white supremacist two weeks ago. after pressed on the issue over the weekend, the social media director said the graphic was not created by the campaign nor sourced from at anti-semitic site. it was lifted from an ant anti-hillary user. critics still hammering trump over the graphic. sara murray has more. >> reporter: good morning, christine and george. donald trump is still dealing with the firestorm after he put out a tweet. it slammed hillary clinton as crooked hillary, but included a six-pointed star. he turned it around on hillary clinton. in the statement, he said the false attacks by hillary clinton trying to link the star of david
with the basic star used by sheriffs who deal with criminal behavior, he says crooked hillary is the most crooked criminal ever. trump is trying to divert the attention. the campaign was highly critical of the tweet. for trump's part, he is trying to turn attention away from the scandal to the veepstakes. he met with iowa senator joni ernst. it is not clear how interested she is in the vp job or if the trump campaign is certify obvious of considering her for the second of command slot. the aides say the meeting went well. back to you. sara, thank you. donald trump and hillary clinton are stumping in the swing state of north carolina. clinton on the campaign trial with the president for the first time. starting in washington, d.c. this morning and hitching a ride
in air force one on to charlotte. the president is hoping his renewed popularity will rub off on clinton. the polls say she might need the help. the survey shows her six points ahead of trump. that is a significant narrowing of her double-digit lead in the same poll two months ago. for the latest on the story, let's go to sunlen serfaty in washington. >> reporter: good morning, christine and george. coming off the fbi interview, over her use of a private e-mail server as secretary of state, hillary clinton will try to take back the narrative today. she will campaign for the first time with president obama in charlotte, north carolina and giving her visit a bit more hitch a ride with president will obama on air force one. donald trump seized on. tweeting why is president obama allowed to use air force one on the campaign trail with crooked hillary? she is flying with him.
who pays? north carolina as a setting for today is a strategic move for the clinton campaign. she sees this as the biggest must-win. aides to clinton tell cnn they expect obama to tell the story of the friendship with secretary of state clinton and laying into donald trump. they expected him to echo the message that clinton is pushing that trump is unqualified for the presidency. thank you for that. let's discussion the campaign with eugene scott live for us from the washington bureau. good morning. let's talk about the tweet. it is either insulting or anti-semitic or sloppy. repeating something from the anti-hillary twitter user, but originally appeared on the
anti-semitic message board. trump said dishonest media trying to depict a star of david in the tweet instead of a sheriff's office star. the campaign has since taken it down. where do we stand? >> i think one of the main places we stand is people are not clear. they don't understand why it takes 48 hours for any response. i was working saturday when the tweet went out. media here at cnn and other supporters and critics were trying to figure out what was going on. i was watching it. it seems like there was no response. whether or not the intention was negative or not, there is concerning about why the campaign is slow to respond over the controversial actions. >> this is a week where we saw hillary clinton interviewed by the fbi. at the same time, this tweet
overshadowed that in the headlines. >> very much so. the same day. it was a busy saturday. secretary clinton was interviewed this morning. this hit social media harder. what was set up for a smooth weekend for trump after the fbi interview and her husband's meeting with the attorney general, this caused more diversion. it wasn't because of the media. you see there were people from the adl and supporters who wanted to know what this was about. >> the adl put out a statement. anti-defamation league. i get tweeted pictures all the time from anti-semitic and white supremacists all the time. is this familiar to me?
absolutely. trump, one of his top advisors, his son, jared kushner. a noted jewish newspaper publisher. he has been very strongly supportive of israel. in his policies and actions don't reflect the retweet suggests. >> very much so. i think so people in the trump campaign were surprised that any references to anti-semitic could be made. they were like, look. my daughter is jewish. i would never do that. that brings up the question for some critics. if you have so many people so close to you who know that this should not be done and this is a poor look, why do you keep doing these things? this is not the first time that donald trump had trouble appearing to be unsupportive of the jewish community.
>> is it sloppy or intentional? we have to continue to follow. let's talk veep picks. >> sure. >> when it comes to hillary clinton. there are so many names. what are we hearing? >> we are hearing a really diverse group of names. we had senator cory booker on "state of the union" yesterday. we had tim kaine. there is elizabeth warren. we are hearing julian castro. it is not clear. it seems to be broad. one thing the campaign is vocal about is the intention and the effort won't be picking someone to help clinton reach a community that she is perhaps not doing that well with. the emphasis is picking someone she thinks can pick up on the job if something were to happen to her on day one as well as someone she likes working with. as we saw it is a job where it is moved over the years from
just this thing that doesn't have a lot of responsibility a tag-team situation with obama and biden. i think clinton wants to continue that. >> and with donald trump. newt gingrich? >> yeah. i think it is possible it could be. you know they were at the aspen rib festival this weekend. i wrote on cnnpolitics.com. he said if i am chosen, i don't want it to be a job where i go to funerals and ceremonials. he wanted to be president himself. if donald trump picks gingrich, i don't think gingrich has anything to worry about. he has more experience in the field than trump. >> and paul manafort, he has said that trump sees himself as more of a chairman of the board.
that is interesting if you look at it as gingrich saying he doesn't want to go to state dinners and funerals. let's talk about obama's numbers. it is interesting. he is campaigning with hillary clinton. when you look at his approval rating right now. above 50% right now. you see how that compares with others at this time. does this give her a bit of a tailwind as she campaigns with the president? >> i think it does with liberal voters in north carolina. as you remember, president obama won in '08. he did not win in 2012. the liberal base in north carolina is activated polling the bathroom laws and transgender people and concerns
about voter supression rights. there are a lot of trump supporters in north carolina as well. >> a popular president. will it rub off on hillary clinton? we will see. eugene scott, thank you. time for an early start on your money. hillary clinton heading to atlantic city to attack trump's business practices. official telling cnn the democratic nominee will discuss trump's record and including the casino bankruptcies. four trump properties in the new jersey city have filed for bankruptcy since 1991. the clinton campaign claims the trip will highlight how trump makes money at the expense of workers. this is not the first time clinton criticized trump's business dealings. we are following the story of new attacks around the world

to get it there. that's why we make more ecommerce deliveries to homes than anyone else in the country. the united states postal service. priority: you welcome back. we have seen a string of terror attacks in the muslim world leaving hundreds dead as the holy month of ramadan comes to the close. isis is said to be responsible for bombings in bangladesh and turkey. and one near the u.s. consulate in jetta. cnn has this covered from dhaka to saudi arabia. let's start with cnn's diplomatic editor nic robertson in london. what do we know? >> reporter: the saudi arabia
interior minister announced the names of one of the bombers. a pakistani man who had been living with his wife and mother-in-law. he was 34 years old. this is relatively unusual you would have a pakistani national involved in one of the attacks in saudi arabia. that is rare. it is almost unprecedented to have three attacks in the space of one day. two of them on opposite sides of the country. amount timed simultaneously. in the second holiest city. approaches a saudi security checkpoint and detonated explosives and killed several and wounded others. in the east of the country, across saudi arabia, a suicide bomber tried to get into a shi'a mosque. he wasn't able to get in. he detonated explosives. he died. no other casualties there. earlier in the morning outside
the u.s. consulate, the first time the u.s. premises in saudi arabia have been targeted in this way for a decade or so, a suicide bomber there moving around behaving in a random way. he kills himself. two officers injured. there has been no claim of responsibility so far. when you look at this, you have to say the profile for the attacks does fit isis. isis is calling for attacks during ramadan. >> thanks, nic. in baghdad, the death toll rising from the is suicide truck bombing. jomana karadsheh following latest for us this morning. she is in jordan. jomana, this is the single deadliest attack since 2003. >> reporter: it is devastating,
christine. it has been more than 48 hours since the suicide truck bombing struck the commercial district in baghdad. rescue workers are still on the scene and digging through the rubble trying to pull out more bodies and body parts of those in the bombing. a heartbreaking story after family members showing up at the scene still searching for loved ones. one couple searching for their teenage son at a cafe celebrating his birthday with friends. a mother who has been to several morgues around baghdad looking for her son who was out shopping. more and more tragic stories like this. 215 people killed. lives lost. many of them children, too. more than 100 others wounded in the attack. as you mentioned, this is the single deadliest attack we have seen since 2003.
this high profile spectacular suicide truck bombings is not something we have seen since the height of the violence in baghdad. we have not seen this in years. isis has claimed responsibility for the attack. raising concerns there that while the group has lost a lot of terrorist itory in iraq, it possesses the ability to carry out the horrific and devastating attacks and highlighting it will take more than fighting isis on the battle field more than a military fight to defeat the group perhaps fighting the ideology, not just militarily. george, back to you. >> jomana, just looking at the image of the building. you get a sense of the devastation. thank you. moving on to bangladesh. dhaka. officials say the attack was
carried out by home-grown militants. let's go live to dhaka and alexandra field following the story. what more can you tell us about the investigation? >> reporter: george, while the investigation continues into who carried out the attacks, the scene of the carnage on friday night is still closed. the owner talked about the labor of love he created in dhaka. a large garden and communal tables which is a place he intended for people to mingle together to share a meal. it was a place targeted by a gang of assailants shooting the place up and lobbing grenades and hacking people up. 20 people killed in the restaurant. two police officers tried to stop it. the owner says he is not sure if he will open up again. he could not bear responsibility
of anything happening like this again. among those killed is a bangladeshi woman. we spoke to her uncle. we told him all of the attackers are bangladeshi. here is what he said. >> they were children. they were raised and educated. they were raised and went to school the same as my daughter. i see them as my children. when i see these people, these children, being brainwashed, despite the fact they have good education and despite they have good university and good school education, i feel so sad. why would this happen? >> reporter: police say that two people injured in the attacks are in custody. both are suspects. one was initially identified as the sole surviving attacker. it is not clear the second
person. christine. alexandra field, thank you for that. just a tragedy. heartache in oklahoma city. kevin durant guilting the thunder. how did this deal get done? andy scholes with the bleacher report next. .

calling anti-semitic ended up on trump's twitter feed. it appeared on a white supremacist message board two weeks ago, but the trump campaign social media director posted a statement on facebook saying the graphic quote was not created by the campaign nor was it sourced from an anti-semitic site. it was lifted from the anti-hillary twitter user. as a director for the social media i would never offend anyone. critics are hammering triump ovr the graphic. sara murray has more. >> reporter: trump is dealing with the firestorm after the tweet that appeared on a white supremacist message board.
it included a six-pointed star that evokes the star of david. trump tried to turn this around on hillary clinton. he said the false attacks by hillary clinton trying to link the star of david with a basic star often used by sheriffs who deal with criminals and criminal behavior. he says hillary clinton is the most corrupt candidate ever. clinton is just trying to divert attention from the dishonest behavior of herself and her husband. her campaign says it shows a pattern of behavior of trump. and he is trying to turn attention away from the scandal to the veepstakes. he met with joni ernst. it is not clear how interested she is in the vp job or if the trump campaign is serious about her for the second in command slot. back to you.
sara, thank you. trump and hillary clinton stumping in the swing state of north carolina today. clinton campaigning with president obama for the very first time. starting in washington this morning and hitching a ride on air force one to charlotte. the president hoping his renewed popularity rubs off on clinton. the usa today shows her six points ahead of trump. that is a significant narrowing of the double-digit lead two months ago. for the latest, let's go to sunlen serfaty in washington. >> reporter: good morning, christine. coming off the fbi interview over the private e-mail server as secretary of state, clinton will campaign for the first time with president obama in charlotte, north carolina. giving her visit a bit of more presidential flair, she will
hitch a ride on air force one. trump seized on that tweeting, why is president obama allowed to use air force one on the campaign trail with crooked hillary. she is flying with him. who pays? and north carolina is the strategic move for the clinton campaign. they see this as the biggest must-win for the trump campaign. trying to undercut him a bit there. aides to clinton say they expect obama to tell the story of the rival-to-friend relationship with secretary of state clinton and laying into trump. they expect him to echo the message that clinton has been pushing herself. that trump is unqualified for the presidency. thank you for that. let's discuss the campaign. let's discuss all that happened with eugene scott. he is live for us from the washington bureau. good morning. >> where do we start? >> let's start with the tweet
that has since been deleted. crooked hillary makes history. then trump with the statement. these false attacks of hillary clinton trying to link the star of david to the sheriff's star showing crooked hillary is the most corrupt candidate ever. this is ridiculous. clinton is just trying to divert attention from herself and her husband. the social media director for the trump campaign said they have taken it down. they don't want to offend anybody. what do you make of this controversy? >> i think a lot of people are confused as to why it took so long for the trump campaign to respond. this tweet went up saturday morning. i was working on the day. we did not get the latest updated response until last night. i think that is confusing to a lot of people. we don't know if it is a staffing issue. we know his staff is smaller than clinton's or if it is an
unwillingness to be sensitive to the concerns of the electorate. people don't understand why media was constantly contacting the trump and supporters and critics. there was no effort to address it. you would think someone on twitter as much as trump would have responded. >> let's talk about the big picture. you see the unforced errors. this could have been a big week for trump. hillary clinton interviewed by the fbi and her husband meeting on the airport tarmac with the attorney general. that was problematic for the clinton campaign. this tweet overshadowed it all. >> absolutely. you mentioned this was not a good week for the clinton campaign. it should have been smooth sailing for the trump campaign. we spent 48 hours in the last news cycle revisiting an issue the trump campaign has had with the interaction with the jewish
communicaty and other groups. we need to figure out if this is a lack of awareness or sensitivity that could lead to a poor policy making leadership if he were elected. >> let's talk about the policy and leadership and vp picks. talks about the names swirling around. it is that time of the cycle. sherrod brown. >> you mentioned joni ernst. gingrich was talking about it. there is chris christie and on the clinton side, it is so diverse. cory booker, elizabeth warren and julian castro. it is not clear who it will be. it is interesting to see what both sides are saying what they need and what gaps vp candidate will pick.
you know donald trump is looking for someone familiar with washington and strong in the areas which he is weak. law making and leadership and policy making. hillary clinton made it clear it is not someone who can connect her with one of the groups she is not doing well with that she is looking to add on to her team. someone she is work closely with and take over if some were to happen to her. >> the time is coming where they make the picks. thank you, eugene. time for an early start on your money. global stocks lower this morning on the brexit concerns. increasingly unpredictable fall after the rebound in the markets last week. markets in the u.s. were closed yesterday for the fourth of july holiday. futures are lower this morning as we head into the first trading day in the second half of the year. a wild first six months. stocks saw the worst start to
the calendar year in history. then it was strong until the brexit vote. the dow and s&p are up 3% and the nasdaq is down the same amount. are we in store for big swings? periods of high volatility are clustered together. friday is the june jobs report. that will be really interesting to watch. the may report was so weak and surprisingly weak. a lot of folks wonder if the economy revved-up a little. around the world, hundreds 6 people killed in attacks as ramadan draws to a close. the new wave of terrorism that could strike anywhere. cnn has live team coverage next.
>> reporter: it is strange you have three attacks in one day. they began with the attack in the u.s. consulate. the pakistani who the interior ministry identified there. the driver and married and living with his wife and mother-in-law. they give no reason why they say he was motivated to do this. the police at the time spotted him behaving in an odd fashion. he detonated his suicide vest. police discovered three more explosives in the vehicle. that was a near miss for the u.s. consulate in jeddeh. and two other attacks timed at almost the same time. one targeting a security checkpoint in the city of medina. the islam's second holiest site. this is felt by the saudi security services all the way up to the king.
this is an embarrassment for the saudis that they can be targeted in a place where pilgrims from around the world come to go on the hajj. the holy pilgrimage. several injured. in the east of the country, a shi'a mosque was the target there. the suicide bomber tried to get to the mosque. he was stopped and detonated. no claim of responsibility. three attacks in one day is absolutely out of the ordinary. the targets, you have to look at it and say this is a sort of target that isis has been targeting in saudi arabia in recent months. >> nic robertson live in london. thank you. moving on to baghdad. the death toll rising from the suicide truck bombing in the iraqi capital. 200 people killed and 175 wounded in the huge blast.
cnn's jomana karadsheh is following the story for us live in jordan. jomana, this is the deadliest single attack in iraq since 2003. >> reporter: george, a really devastating attack. it has been more than 48 hours since the suicide truck bombing truck the commercial district in baghdad. up until now, rescue workers are on the scene and digging through the rubble trying to find more bodies and body parts. we're hearing from the teams on the ground that family members are still showing up on the scene and still searching for their loved ones who went missing during the attack. so many heartbreaking stories of the attack. parents looking for children. including one couple with their teenage son celebrating at a cafe with friends. they lost touch with him and
they came searching for him. so many stories like that. 215 people killed. so many lives lost. including children out with families and celebrating the end of the school year and preparing for the festival that comes at the end of the holy month of ramadan. more than 100 other people wounded in the attack. you mentioned the single deadliest attack in iraq since 2003. this kind of large scale suicide truck bombing is something we have not seen in baghdad in years since the height of the sectarian violence in that country. isis has claimed responsibility for the attack and this is coming at a time when we heard from u.s. and iraqi officials about how much territory isis has lost in iraq. most recently the city of fallujah. a tragic and reminder the group
still has the ability to carry out the sort of devastating attacks while it has lost ground. another reminder that the fight against isis cannot only be won militarily. back to you. >> jomana karadsheh for us following that story. to bangladesh and terror attack in dhaka. isis claiming responsibility. officials say the attack was carried out by home-grown militants. let's bring in alexandra field live in bangladesh. alexandra. >> reporter: good morning, christine. we are learning more of the hideous details in the restaurant at the attack which lasted 11 hours. we spoken to the owner of the holy artisan bakery at the site of the concearnagcarnage. the staff had run upstairs and
they were on the rooftop to save their lives. he said the rest of the staff was hiding in another part of the restaurant until the gunman came for them. this is what happened next. >> shot a lot of people. >> reporter: he describes the fact some of the people were hiding in the bakery. by the time the staff was brought into the restaurant, so many were killed. they were led past dead bodies on the ground. the owner of the bakery cannot imagine what it is like to open up another restaurant. he could not bear the responsibility for something happening again. he opened this place two years ago. it is a place of calm and garden
and people sharing communal tables. that vision now interrupted. george. >> the siege lasted 13 hours. alexandra field, thank you. time to look at what is coming up on "new day." alisyn camerota joins us live. >> good morning. hi, george. donald trump's campaign making a star turn this morning. who writes this stuff? the presumptive nominee lashing out that the six-pointed star you see used to attack hillary clinton could be anti-semitic. we will bring you the latest. and president obama is on the campaign trail with hillary clinton. we will break down his role and if it will help hillary. we have that and more when john berman and i join you in nine minutes. thank you. if you rent an apartment, you
