tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN July 22, 2016 1:00am-2:01am PDT
it's friday, july 22nd. >> putting america back to work and you didn't realize it. >> why do they need a jack it is 4:00 a.m. in the east. hammer to break down the set? we want to welcome our viewers >> welcome to "early start." from all around the world. i'm christine romans at the and they are sweeping up behind republican national convention or what's left of it in us right now. there is leftover confetti on cleveland. >> i'm john berman. the floor. that confetti fell. the balloons dropped a few hours ago on the head of donald trump accepting the republican nomination for president. he gave a long speech that painted a picture of a country in serious trouble. lawlessness in the streets. immigrants are flooding the border, he says. and he says, there is only one man who can fix it. listen. >> our convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation. the attacks on our police and the terrorism of our cities threaten our very way of life.
any politician who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our country. >> donald trump last night. cnn's manu raju joins us with more on his big night. manu. >> reporter: this was donald trump that was tapping into the economic anxiety of the country. painting a bleak picture of the united states right now and promoting what he believes would be a strong united states if he were to become the commander in chief. he was railing on trade deals. he was talking a trade deals. listen to the hard line he took by saying the country's immigration is leading to the economic problems here in the country. >> americans want relief from uncontrolled immigration which is what we have now.
communities want relief. yet, hillary clinton, is proposing mass amnesty, mass immigration and mass lawlessness. her plan will overwhelm your schools and hospitals, further reduce your jobs and wages. we are going to build a great border wall to stop illegal immigration. to stop the gangs and the violence. and to stop the drugs from pouring into our communities. >> reporter: now the question out of the four-day event, christine and john, how much does donald trump reach out to swing voters? we know those remarks that he made riled up this crowd and conservatives. what does it mean for his candidacy headed into the
general election? we won't know until the democrats have their convention next week in philadelphia. >> manu raju, thank you. let's discuss last night's main event with political analyst josh rogin. and our three cnn commentators. ben ferguson and maria cardona and john phillips. good morning. 4:00 a.m. in the east. they are tearing down the stage behind us. i want to talk about something trump talked about with foreign policy. josh. >> after 15 years of wars in the middle east, after trillions of dollars spent and thousands of lives lost, the situation is worse than it has ever been before. this is the legacy of hillary clinton. death, destruction, terrorism and weakness.
>> josh, that played well in that room. >> it did play well in the room. it plays well broadly. the problem is that first of all, he made several mistakes about the foreign policy of hillary clinton. the notion she was leading barack obama around is just wrong. it is the obama administration's policy. set that to the side. the notion that the obama/clinton policy made the nation less safe. we saw him in "the new york times" interview and he laid out his foreign policy vision. i talked to people about this yesterday. his vision is self contradictory. he will kill everybody against us. his statements are throwing the allies into a tizzy. he doesn't have any specifics
for how he will go after isis and solve all of the problems beyond quote/unquote meetings. there is an audience that the clinton/obama foreign policy failed. sympathetic to the argument. donald trump doesn't feel the need to figure out how he would change it and what he would do and how it makes sense. that is fine until we get to the debate where is they are head-to-head and it will be a problem for him. >> i think he will do just fine on this issue with the debates. he says we are weak on going after terrorism. we had a limited response to terrorism. the hillary clinton foreign policy which is an extension of the obama foreign policy. she is not saying she did anything wrong in the state department. he will hit on the issues of foreign policy or national security at risk. whether it is benghazi or the e-mails. he also will make a clear point. that will be this. look at how we are right now and
how many terrorists are actively killing people in civilized nations. >> it is not a real thing. >> he is saying he is going after terrorists where they are and i'm going to take the gloves off and not sit here and act like the terrorists are not being successful. >> what does that mean? he never puts any meat on those bones. hang on. exactly. last night, it worked, right? one of the things we have seen in the polls is foreign policy as a category in polls, he loses to her. each and every time. >> he wins on terrorism. >> he does. >> so i actually think it was smart for him to do that last night in the room and followers. it is not enough to sustain it. he has to put meat on those bones. that is what the clinton campaign is salivating. >> let's be honest.
people care about terrorism and what happens domestically. people care about what is going on on the opposite side of the world. what happened in san bernardino and orlando does affect them. >> the risk he runs is the republican foreign policy establishment, i put that in quotation marks because that is how it appears in articles written by josh rogin. when you say that, you talk about people who worked for george w. bush and george h.w. bush. those people, viscerally do not agree. >> not only that, john, they are supporting hillary. there were 100 people supporting. >> the leadership in the senate and house. we are talking about the people he will have to work with. the pentagon and state department. the people who do this for a living and say this doesn't make sense. this makes the country less safe. not more safe.
it undoes -- >> in south carolina, they had a debate on foreign policy with george h.w. bush in the audience. donald trump took that on and won that south carolina primary. >> it was impressive. >> the thing about foreign policy, you say america first and fear monger. >> especially in the republican primary. >> i don't think he will go there with hillary clinton. >> he's going to go there. >> no, not in the way you think he is. what you will see from him when he goes head-to-head with hillary clinton is what have you done to stop isis? when you see attacks in nice, there are people that look at that city and think that could be my city. >> that's true. >> i think when you see these attacks happening in places where they can truly say a subway attack in germany. a knife attack. >> he's not going to be able to come out and say here's what i'm going to do.
he hasn't been able to say -- here's what he says. i'm going the bomb the s out of them. >> you cannot fight terrorists at home. in order to solve the big problems, america has to be active outside its borders. it doesn't make sense. >> we have a lot to talk about. a lot of opinion here. we will get to that. we will talk about donald trump's daughter going to bat for her father. earning her rave reviews last night and showing maybe a softer side of her father. will her speech win him new votes? why does maria cardona say was that the democratic national convention last night? at the beginning of the 21st century, the earth needed to find a new way to keep up with the data from over 30 billion connected devices.
just 30 billion? so, a bold group of researchers and computer scientists in silicon valley had a breakthrough they called... the machine. the machine. it changed the basic architecture of computing... putting a massive pool of memory at the center of everything. and by doing so... it changed the world. it's been a part of every new technology for the last 250 years. everything? everything! this year, hewlett packard enterprise will preview the machine. and the future of technology will begin. see star trek beyond. in theatres july 22.
"are you okay?" "yeah, i just got charged for my credit monitoring. that's how i know it"s working." "ah. you know you can go on creditkarma.com and check it out there. it's completely free." "really?" "yeah" "oh, that didn't hurt at all." "yeah, completely painless." "credit karma. give yourself some credit."
there were a lot of people looking at donald trump's acceptance speech saying it was one of the most inclusive party speeches on the convention floor they have ever heard. the nominee reached out to the lgbt community. he and his daughter spoke specifically about women. let us discuss our panel josh rogin and maria cardona and john phillips. let's talk about ivanka. she has been active in the campaign. the campaign is eager to showcase her in high profile moments. it was clear they had her out to soften the edges. listen. >> at my father's company, there are more female than male
executives. women are paid equally for the work we do and when a woman becomes a mother, she is supported, not shut out. my father values talents. he recognizes real knowledge and skill when he finds it. he is color blind and gender neutral. he hires the best person for the job period. >> and she talked about the equal pay. she talked about child care. she talked about universal pre-k. she talked about a lot of things in hillary clinton's platform. >> john phillips. >> she's glamorous. she's telegenic. she helps donald trump in every possible way. look, the trumps have been an al a a carte family. >> she said she votes how she feels.
>> they had that option. ted cruz was the republican. he ran as the philosophical guy. he ran as an a la carte family. >> you said am i at the democratic convention? i thought she was fabulous. poised and elegant. >> just so you know. >> beautiful. and then she started talking about all these things that excite democratic women to the point that when she introduced her dad and donald trump came up on the stage, i got nervous. i did. if this man actually comes on to the stage and says, you know, ivanka, my daughter. look what she talked about. i support all these things, i think democrats would be in trouble. he went on to give the speech he gave. we're good. >> i was watching the focus groups. this is just between us. ivanka trump.
all positive. she never hit a ten, but they love, love, love her. donald trump walks up to the podium. it dipped negative for the first time. no, we don't want to hear him. keep her. >> she is great. >> the greatest asset for trump is his kids. they are the best surrogates. they soften him. you realize donald trump must be a decent person to raise children like that. take politics out. as a human being, he definitely did not screw his kids up. >> but the point here is that donald trump is not going to make up his gap on women despite his relatives soften him. let's remember what paul manafort said on another
network. this is the trump campaign. this is where they are. it is like neanderthal. saying all the right things is not going to change the fundamental problem. they are not really speaking to women. >> the hole he is in with women is way too deep. no matter how good ivanka is. >> talked about youth unemployment. he not talk about a policy to fix that. >> this is what i like to say kabuki outreach. i'm outreaching to women. i'll say something nice about muslims. it is not actual outreach. >> his outreach to lgbt was news worthy. >> will he follow-up? is there an actual follow-up? >> when ivanka talked about her dad and giving them a second chance in careers and reaching
out to people and painting that picture. here is what trump will say to clinton. did you not do squat for minorities. especially african-american to give them a better economy and better job market. that will resonate with people watching. >> silicon valley legend supporting donald trump last night. peter thiel says he is proud to be gay and proud to be republican and proud to be american. he believes his party's focus right now is misplaced. >> i don't pretend to agree with every plank in our platform, but fake culture wars distract us from the economic decline. and nobody in the race is being honest about it except donald trump. >> so immediately following that speech, high profile tech leaders came out to blast thiel. thiel has not always been a
trump supporter. the biggest donation is $2 million to carli fiorina's super pac. forbes says thiel is worth $2.8 billion. he was an investor in spotify, lyft and airbnb. he really had a remarkable moment on the stage last night. >> i think he is doing all right. the head of fox news out. giant news in the media business. frankly, giant news here at the republican convention. you could feel the shock waves through the city. roger ailes gone. that's next.
i have to say, one of the biggest stories in republican circles may not have been donald trump accepting the nomination. it is roger ailes out at fox news. he has been at the helm of the channel since inception. he resigned effective immediately in the wake of the sexual harassment allegations. gretchen carlson filed a lawsuit. ailes walks away with a $40 million settlement. who will run the ship? at least for
now, rupert murdock will serve as chief executive until ailes is replaced.

the most important difference between our plan and that of our opponent is that our plan will put america first. >> donald trump. you heard it right there. he promised to put america first. just part of his acceptance speech. the final night of the republican national convention speech this morning. some people are calling dark. welcome back to "early start." i'm john berman. >> i'm christine romans. it is dark. literally. 4:30 in cleveland right now. behind us, they're tearing down
the stage. the party is over at the gop convention. you can see and you can hear the clean up under way right now. overnight, what a night. donald trump accepted the republican nomination for president. painting a dire picture of american crisis. citizens in danger and the economy in crisis. immigrants flooding the borders and driving down wages. all threatening american peace and prosperity. listen. >> our convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation. the attacks on our police and the terrorism of our cities threaten our very way of life. any politician who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our country. >> cnn's manu raju joins us with more on trump's big night.
manu. >> reporter: this was donald trump that was tapping into the economic anxieties of the country. painting a bleak picture of the united states and promoting what he believes a strong united states if he were to become the commander in chief. he was taking a hard line as he has done all primary season on immigration. listen to the hard line he took by saying that the country's immigrants, the problem with immigration, is leading to the economic problems happening here in the country. >> americans want relief from uncontrolled immigration which is what we have now. communities want relief. yet hillary clinton is proposing mass amnesty, mass immigration and mass lawlessness. her plan will overwhelm your
schools and hospitals, further reduce your jobs and wages. we are going to build a great border wall to stop illegal immigration. to stop the gangs and the violence and to stop the drugs from pouring into our communities. >> reporter: now the question out of the four-day event, john and christine, how much does he reach out to swing voters? we know those remarks that he made really riled up this crowd and riled up the conservative base. what does it mean for the general election? we won't know that until a few days and the democrats have their convention in philadelphia next week. >> manu raju, thank you. let us discuss. we have joined byjoshoginand a trio of commentators. ben ferguson, maria cardona and
kabc radio host john phillips. donald trump gave a speech where he depicted a country in serious trouble in a number of ways. he said he would be the law and order candidate. and depicted a nation he said was rampant with lawlessness. listen to him talking a little bit. >> on january 20th, 2017, the day i take the oath of office -- [ applause ] >> -- americans will finally wake up in a country where the laws of the united states are enforced. >> so it is interesting. donald trump's convention speech here in july and some ways reacting more to the last three
or four weeks than the last year of american history. john phillips, do you think that law and order, which is what donald trump talked about last night, can sustain his candidacy until november? >> i think so. if you watched cnn, you saw the massacre in orlando and massacre in san bernardino. you saw the massacre in paris. it is one right after another. you have the police shootings where police officers were assassinated for no other reason other than the fact they wear the badge. this was not for the luxury boxes where we are sitting, but for the seats above us. many maybe in the media don't, but the people will. >> the jobs issue. that is where he was striking at what is not for the luxury boxes, but people earning a paycheck. listen to what he said. >> i am going to bring back our
jobs to ohio and pennsylvania and new york and michigan and all of america. and i am not going to let companies move to other countries, firing their employees along the way, without consequence. not going to happen anymore. >> some context here. four years ago when might rtt r was on the stage, he promised to bring down unemployment. he promised to create jobs. they promised $2.50 gas. the stock market at a record high. wages are flat. too many people feel they are not evolved in the labor market. is donald trump wrong on how terrible jobs are? >> i think you ask the average american out there who is unemployed and they say it is awful. >> the average american is not unemployed. >> the average american that is
employed feels stagnate. >> we asked people what they felt about the economy. they said terrible. they said donald trump could do a better job. they were asked about the personal situation. they were fine. a low self esteem problem that is feeding it. >> it is partially low self este esteem, but some are not making what they feel like they are making eight years after hope and change. it was really supposed to economically -- remember it was not foreign policy that got him elected. it was the economy and i'm going to make things better. you will have a better life. there are people that are not in the job force. they stopped working period. >> those are retired. some are left behind. >> some are left behind. if you look at the average american city. people feel like we should be doing a lot better than we are right now. that is a vulnerability of hillary clinton because it is an
extension of barack obama. it is hard to conference them it will be great. >> if you are looking at the headlines today and hear a lot of talk. you hear people saying one of the darkest speeches. midnight in meramerica i heard called. the focus group did not see it like that. i want to know what you saw. >> republican independents. >> we socialize that negative is the new normal. hillary is going negative. donald trump is going negative. so when donald trump gives us a one hour speech that is all negative. not just doom and gloom, anti-hillary and anti-obama. not a lot of policy plans. people see that and say that makes sense. the question is can you just drive negatives up until you win? can you run an entire presidential camp without putting forward a detailed
policy and political agenda that is aspirational and has any meat on the bone. right now, i think people are used to it. that's a problem. whether or not that will last in november. >> his speech played very well in the arena and to his supporters. his problem is, though, and what conventions are supposed to start to do for a candidate is to reach beyond and to start appealing to the broader section of voters that you will need in order to win. he got 13 or 14 million votes in the primary. he needs upwards of 65 million votes. when you write off full communities like he has done. he did it again in his speech. that was a calculated risk. he wrote off latinos. when he talked about immigration. everything he talked about immigration is wrong. immigration is at a net negative right now.
he is using fear mongering. that is effective up until now. >> that theme applies with economics. you had one job and you had it your whole life. you had two or three and then you retired. now people have two or three jobs at once and they think the jobs can be gone any day. people do not feel secure about their jobs. >> my life to a t. >> if we don't go to a commercial, our jobs will be gone tomorrow. >> speaking of getting paid. donald trump with new warnings of what will happen to america if hillary clinton is elected as the clinton campaign gears up for its own convention and maybe a big announcement soon. that's next. you?" "she says...bazang!" "ok, good one." "uh, how do i check my credit score?" "credit karma, it's free." "credit karma. give yourself some credit."
doom and danger facing the country if hillary clinton is elected. and clinton responded overnight saying this. tonight, donald trump painted a dark picture of america in decline. his answer is more fear and division and more hate. yet another reminder that he is temperamentally unfit and unqualified to be president of the united states. if i had a nickel for every time i heard temperamentally unfit. we are hearing about her choice of running mate. that rollout may be ahead of the democratic national convention that starts on monday. we have the panel here. josh rogin and ben ferguson and maria carona and john phillips. >> i think the smart money is on tim kaine. i think her qualifications or criteria is going to be somebody
who can step into the job immediately. >> she said that. >> and somebody she knows well and feels comfortable with. she knows tim kaine well. she worked with him in the past. he has a lot of experience. he speaks spanish fluently. i think a lot of qualities point to him being the one. >> if she could pick wall paper, that would be her running mate. she wants to make donald trump the focus of the campaign. she doesn't want anybody to up stage here. she wants somebody there to hold her purse. >> she wants no drama. a boring convention for hillary clinton is a perfect outcome. she doesn't want to make waves or take risks. she is feeling confident. they think they are ahead. they think all they have to do is point to donald trump and let him collapse and they will be fine. >> remember, the only thing it prevents you from doing is winning. >> i go back months ago.
remember when hillary clinton said i would talk to my husband about vp picks. al gore was the most boring by ever in the campaign. it worked really well for bill clinton because it showcased bill clinton as a governor. she is looking at it the same way. i want a safe person i can put in a box. >> she wants somebody who she wants to be the vice president. if you are hillary clinton, you think you are going to win, you have to deal with this guy for four years. she wants -- >> or gal. >> she needs somebody men can relate to? >> yes. >> she's going to break a huge glass ceiling. she doesn't need to make two. put in the white man. he can talk to the other white men and that's fine. >> you mean pander to white men? >> that's what obama did.
>> once she makes her pick with a lot of fanfare, it is terrific. going into next week's convention, it will be night and day with what we just saw with these four days of chaos and dysfunction were these last four days. the democrats are unified. disaster as well. >> do you need more illiteration here? >> your biggest liability is you have bernie sanders supporters that will not like the vp pick and how do you get them to still like you as a candidate? that's your biggest problem. you might have to do it. >> that's not going to be an issue. >> we have to leave it there. awesome. nice to see you. thanks for being with us. >> you must dismiss. >> coming up at the top of the hour now, donald trump accepted the republican nomination with
an hour and a quarter speech that spent much of the time painting a dire picture of the nation in crisis. here is the opening session of trump's address. >> friends, delegates, and fellow americans, i humbly and gratefully accept your nomination for the presidency of the united states. isis has spread across the region and the entire world. libya is in ruins and our ambassador and his staff were left helpless to die at the hands of savage killers. egypt was turned over to the brotherhood and forcing the military tie co take control. iraq is on the path of nuclear
weapons. syria is engulfed in the civil war and the refugee crisis now threatens the west. after 15 years of wars in the middle east, after trillions of dollars spent and thousands of lives lost, the situation is worse than it has ever been before. this is the legacy of hillary clinton. death, destruction, terrorism and weakness. the most important difference between our plan and that of our opponent is that our plan will put america first. americanism, not globalism will be our credo as long as we are led by politicians who will not put america first. then we can be assured that
other nations will not treat america with respect. the respect that we deserve. the american people will come first once again. i have seen firsthand how the system is rigged against our citizens. just like it was rigged against bernie sanders. he never had a chance. never had a chance. but his supporters will join our movement because we will fix his biggest single issue. trade deals that strip our country of its jobs and strip us of our wealth as a country. in this cause, i am proud to have at my side the next vice president of the united states
governor mike pence of indiana. we will bring the same economic success to america that mike brought to indiana which is amazing. he's a man of character and accomplishment. he is the man for the job. america was shocked to its core when our police officers in dallas were so brutally executed. immediately after dallas, we have seen continued threats and violence against our law enforcement officials. law officers have been shot or killed in recent days in georgia, missouri, wisconsin, kansas, michigan and tennessee. on sunday, more police were
gunned down in baton rouge, louisiana. three were killed and three were very, very badly injured. and attack on law enforcement is an attack on all americans. as your president, i will do everything in my power to protect our lgbtq citizens from the violence and depression of a hateful foreign ideology. believe me. as a republican, it is so nice to hear you cheering for what i just said. thank you. i am your voice. so to every parent who dreams for their child and every child who dreams for their future, i say these words to you tonight.
terrorism on our cities threaten our very way of life. >> our country is divided. our people are afraid. >> i have a message to america. hold on. help is coming. >> on january 20th of 2017, safety will be restored. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo and alisyn camerota. >> welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. this is "new day" live from the republican national convention in cleveland. last night was the big night and donald trump certainly went big in accepting the party nomination. big and bad. painting a picture of desperation and crisis in america. insisting only he can make us safe and prosperous. >> trump blasting hillary clinton and blaming her for making america less safe.
some call it the best of his career and others call it dark. we have every angle covered for you. let's start with phil mattingly. hi, phil. >> alisyn, the message and theme was not different, but the tone and ominous with big bold promises. it made clear that donald trump is not subtle at all about his intentions for the next four months. >> i humbly and gratefully accept your nomination for the presidency of the united states. >> reporter: in the biggest speech of his life, donald trump declaring america's in crisis. >> not
