2:01 am
. . this is cnn breaking news. >> 5:00 a.m. on the u.s. east coast. welcome to our viewers in the u.s. and around the world. we are following breaking news this hour. >> be right bareaking news out korea, they have sent up a projectile. it is unclear what it has launched. this comes after a week after they successfully launched a missile that landed in the ocean. our alexander field is live in seoul. we are understanding this news comes from the deposgovernment south korea. >> reporter: that's right it comes from the joint chiefs in south korea. we are learning south korean officials will convene a meeting of the national security council. that will happen shortly. officials will be trying to analyze what projectiles was
2:02 am
launched in what is a long string of provocations from pyongyang. all we hear it is some kind of projectile, but to put this into context, we know that pyongyang has fired off nearly a dozen ballistic missiles. we we heard here just at the start of the trump administration if this was a ballistic missile they attempted to launch, officials will be trying to determine how successful the launch was and what exactly they put up there. again, this comes one week after a very successful launch from north korea, was just last sunday we saw the launch and missile that landed closer to russia than japan. at the time analysts weighed in and said this was a projectile that appeared to have flown at a higher altitude and farther, that led analysts to conclude north korea has taken a significant step forward in
2:03 am
terms of developing an intercontinental ballistic missile. >> that is, of course, north korea to develop a missile that could carry a nuclear warhead all the way to the continental u.s. the success of that test a week ago prompted swift reaction from countries around the world. the u.n. security council launched stricting sanctions on north korea. a week ago they called on all countries against north korea. the trump administration has since tried to thwart some cooperation from the kim jong-un regime. the latest launch of this unidentified projectile also comes at another politically sensitive time right as u.s. president trump taxi off for his international trip. >> absolutely. you can bet we are going to get reaction from the trump
2:04 am
administration as they're in saudi arabia. this is, of course, quite a moment, quite a test for a new government in south korea, that government saying what they had hoped is to have some kind of negotiation even with north korea. has their tack changed? certainly given the fact that they have been tested already? >> they were tested very quickly, just in the first week of the presidency, you had one ballistic missile launched, that was one that happened last sunday, now it appears another will be launched today, president eun is in a position that the government has been publicly taking what they promised to voters, platforms here in south korea, it, of course, marks a turning point, they took a harder line, there
2:05 am
was a tone shift when it comes to policy, but there aren't a lot of options at this point. you saw him come out with no choice but to swiftly and strongly condemn the actions. he went on to say this is a time when south korea would have to show the north that talks would only be possible if north korea changed its attitude that. provocation would be met with very strong. we have to imagine what we could hear on officials again in their second national security council in a week to respond to these mounting provocations. back to you. >> alexander field, we'll continue to follow those developments from seoul. we will bring you the latest breaking news. again, north korea, firing some time i type -- type of a proble president is ile. >> we will continue to bring you details as we get more. it's day two as you were
2:06 am
saying about donald trump's ambitious trip to the middle east and europe. the first of his presidency. he is gathering with muslim leaders. he met personally with leaders in bahrain, qatar and egypt. >> later the president is set to have one of the key moments of his visit. that's when he will give a speech on combating radical extremism. given the president's heavy use of twitter, he will be taking part in a twitter forum. our white house reporter jeremy dimon is in riyadh covering the u.s. president's trip. ly get to that in a second. right now, all people are watching what he's going to be saying in his speech. you know the pictures of him at this extraordinary muslim islamic arab summit, it is more than 40 nations invited to this summit. what does the trump administration hope to gain from this type of rally unprecedented this kind of outreach that we have seen to the muslim world?
2:07 am
>> well, you know, a lot of these images are a part of this potential muslim reset we will see from the president in his speech later today. you know, he's been meeting with many of the region's top leaders. but what comes with that is the fact that a lot of these leaders are autocratic leaders, we hear from saudi arabia, which is a monarchy. we saw the president meet with several leaders of similarly autocratic countries like bahrain. we also saw the president once again having an interaction with the president which was a buddy routine than a meeting between two key world leaders. listen in to this clip we have. >> the president we express our appreciatation and respect. let me say you have a unique personality that is capable of doing the impossible. >> i agree.
2:08 am
>> reporter: and these are the kind of interactions we have seen between the president and a lot of these leaders the saudi monarch royal family has been greeting the president with open arms here in saudi arabia. again, this is one of the things the president has to contend with, as he looks to reset relations with the muslim world, he will be addressing the leaders of 15 muslim countries in his speech later today, but, of course, who he is not addressing, at least in the room but is addressing more broadly through television is the billions of muslims who live in a lot of these countries, you know, there is a big contrast here between the president's speech here today and the speech that we saw president obama give his first leader speech abroad, which was at cairo university, where he addressed young people to talk about the relation with the muslim world. even though he is embracing a lot of these leaders, he is looking at the fact he is trying to reach out to the people in
2:09 am
these countries who live sometimes through protests and uprisings against many of these regimes that we are seeing greeting the president with open arms in saudi arabia. >> the president unapologetic saying human rights will not be brought up. he won't leg closure to other countries about the behavior. we have to get back to that twitter. in terms of that outreach, what are they expecting? are they expecting it to be spontaneous like the video we saw? >> reporter: well, this is one of the forums where he will get to address peekt e people directly. we don't know what he will say. we expect him to say some prepared remarks, particularly on the way people in the middle east can use social media to counter violent extremist ideology. >> that is something we have not we heard of the president speak of so far. his prominent use of twitter and
2:10 am
social media platforms, i think a lot of people will be tuning in to see what the president has to offer. >> he might remind them, they are not to use social media to criticize their government as well. we will see. this will be a bit awkward. >> a lot to juggle on this trip. >> absolutely. you will be watching it ul there in riyadh, appreciate it. >> the big question now is will the president's trip abroad, will that be enough to end the firestorm that is mushrooming in the washington when he fired fbi director james comey? >> the latest news on that front the russian foreign minister, this is key. he denies the report that mr. trump talked about comey when the president met with sergei lavrov at the white house, lavrov said comey's name never came up during that meeting. according to "time's" the president is quoted as saying i just fired the head of the fbi, he was crazy, a real nut job, i faced great pressure because of russia.
2:11 am
that's taken off. >> we are joined from london with perspective on president trump's overseas trip and the controversies plaguing him from washington a. pleasure to have you with us this hour. leslie. one of the various controversies in washington, this quote again from the president basically referring to his fbi director as a nut job. again, i just fired the head of the fbi, he was crazy, a real nut job. i faced great pressure because of russia, that's taken off. leslie, here's the thing the president of the united states allegedly bragging to russian leaders about firing his american fbi director. how significant is that? >> well, if it's documented and confirmed, it certainly is another chink in the armor. it suggests that's his motivation for firing comey had
2:12 am
much more to do with his concern over the investigation and the fact that remember comey has begun to invest more. >> that investigation was moving forward. i think he had a sense of that he had a sense we we heard from the institution that comey was simply not becoming a part of this team. he didn't have the loyalty that trump really wanted. there is another take that president trump is in the oval office. he's meeting with the russians. he wants to demonstrate to them he isn't constrained by domestic politics. that's another reading worth taking into account. number one, these investigations are move forward, mueller has been appointed independent count sell, so this is not going to go away t. foreign trip, if it goes well, if itco wants to go well, it is a feather in the cap of the president. he can deflect some of the domestic pressure on the russian investigations. but it won't go away, when he returns, remember we are still
2:13 am
going to wait and see who that new fbi director will be. >> that will matter quite a lot. there is a concern i think now that the senate intelligence investigations and house investigations might take a step back, because they see now that mueller has been appointed and will be moving forward. of course, comey has agreed to testify after the memorial day holiday. so there is that. but the foreign trip is significant. because remember he's announced an arms deal. he has announced many deals amongst corporate. so he can say to the american people, he is creating jobs, he is fulfilling a campaign promise by signing the deal that he has been negotiating in saudi. so there is a lot going on there week, of course, this speech today will be very significant and will be watched to see whether or not he returns to that language of radical islamic terrorism. is there that will be the big question. will that be in hess speech again?
2:14 am
looking at these images of president trump in saudi arabia as we speak. again, this is him meeting with many leaders in the muslim arab world, leslie the question is look there is no telling what monday will bring with regard to the various investigations that are under way. the president looking to turn a page here with this international trip. as you point out the president saying he signed an arms deal that will be jobs, jobs, jobs, for americans as he pointed out. looking to set the reset button with the muslim arab world when you consider what the president had to say a year ago, not even a year ago on the campaign trail. comments and statements about islam that many considered to be up su insulting. so the question is is this international trip, this meeting with arab leaders, is this working to turn the page so far? >> well, it's too soon to tell,
2:15 am
the speech will be risks if it goes poorly created a backlash among the broader region, if he is seen to be targeting islam too broad will i to focusing uniting the people in the region against radicalization and terrorism. the speech has been written by steve miller, apparently, who, of course, was the author of the first travel ban the so-called muslim ban. saudi was not on that lest, of course, that particular ban did not go well across either the united states or the region that he is currently in at the popular level. so there is a risk in terms of the content of the speech. we will have to see whether he sticks to the script. so i think it's a little bit too soon to tell, certainly the last 24 hours were, went well from the point of view of the public reaction. but there is a broader concern too now. he's returning to america's traditional partners, but the context of this trip, of course,
2:16 am
the background is iran. he spoke out against iran. there is no conversation and human rights are off the table in terms of saudi, but there is a concern of what this particular trip will do with respect to the eastern deal. whether it will put more pressure on that deem, which right now has still got the backing of the currents administration and seals to be successful, it's critic a him to transforming the geopolitics of the middle east. so there are a lot of issues on the table. i think the speech today in terms of how this trip goes will be probably one of the most significant parts of the entire trip. >> thank you for the perspective. >> thank you. >> still ahead here on cnn "newsroom," he will be live in iran in tehran where the president has been decisively re-elected and we look at what to expect from his second term.
2:17 am
2:18 am
2:19 am
welcome back to skr nn "newsroom." iran's president rouhani was
2:20 am
re-electe re-elected. >> what we hope, what i would happy is that rouhani has a new term and he uses that term to gin a process of dismantling iraq's terrorism, dismantling its financing of the terrorist network, dismantling the manning and the logistics and everything that they provide to these de stabilizing forces that exist in this region. that's what we hope he does. >> let's get more now from iran, cnn's fred pleitgen is in that capital. he joins us by phone. fred, good to have you at this hour. so let's talk about the differences of these two administrations. the obama administration shows more engagement to iran and the ire of saudi arabia. now we see the u.s. president
2:21 am
reaffirming that relationship. explain the differences of these administrations? >> reporter: oh it's a major difference. when obama was in office, between the foreign secretary, secretary of state john kerry on the one hand and, of course driving figure, feting that nuclear agreement passed, the one between iran an other world powers, including, of course the united states that really forms the basis of what many people thought would be better relations between the united and iran. it's not something that normally happens, especially with the hard liners, doing things that made it difficult for these two nations to get close to each other. pliska missile tests being one of them. i think many here in ierp are quite surprised at the top line the trump administration is
2:22 am
taking, especially if there was another iranian pliska missile test and they flattened sanctions on the iranians, that was certainly something here, who thought there would be a pragmatic relationship, realize that most probably the trump administration had a fairly hard line. i think that's something that they are now also witnessing by the fact that this is the first foreign visit the president is conducting is to saudi arabia, which of course is iran's main adversaries here. >> fred, we're going to break away here. we are having technical issues with their audio. again, thank you for the reporting. again, iran, re-electing its president hasan rouhani. the question is how will that decision play out geopolitically with the president of the united states, now in saudi arabia, re-affirming that relationship that is yet to tell?
2:23 am
>> we have some breaking news now for you on the story we have been following here all morning which is the fact that north korea has fired a ballistic missile we are told that went about 500 kilometers or 300 miles, that is according to south korean joint chiefs of staff. now it went off around 4:00 a.m., so about an hour and 20 minute ago, the south korean military saying that our military is closely monitoring north cre why and maintaining readiness posture. if it was 500 kilometers, 300 miles that is not the distance it would have gone on may 14th. >> that one went much further and actually showed much more progress in that missile program. in fact, that was alarming to analysts who said that might prove north korea is there or close to being able to have a nuclear tipped missile, something they have been trying to do for several years now.
2:24 am
we will continue to watch this story for you, again, south korea confirming this was a ballistic missile that was fired. >> we will monitor for reaction throughout the region and around the world. we have noted the last time there was reaction from russia, from china from the united states this news coming in to us a short time ago, again, they fired their proonltile, we will bring you updates as we get more. iraqi forces say they are getting closer to fully retaking when mo sum from isis control. in the meantime, thousands of civilians are risking their lives, fleeing the fighting. their escape is dangerous. it quite traumatizeing. ben wedeman brings us the story from western mosul. >> reporter: hurry, do ep tore the soldier shouts, but not everyone is in a hurry. they fled their homes in west
2:25 am
mosul 17th of july neighborhood, traumatized by weeks of bombardment, they've reached iraqi lines under fire. it's hot. they're hungry, thirsty and exhausted. this 80-year-old woman barely able to comprehend her surroundings. he fled with his family of 15. they have been surviving for weeks on a thin gruel of flour and water. his wife suffering from diabetes could go no further. much of western mosul is a city in shambles, of perilous baron
2:26 am
moon scape of rubble and dust. >> that car bomb over there went off about a half an hour ago. the iraqi army has dropped leaflets over western mosul, warning residents that any moving vehicle in the battle zone will be considered a potential car bomb and will be hit. soldiers from the army's 16th division prepare to move forward, taking prisoners is not a part of their mission. god willing, we'll capture them alive the major tells me and then execute them in front of the civilians. these two isis snipers killed just hours before raised a white flag. for brigadier general of the elite counterterrorism forces,
2:27 am
this is a struggle to the death. now they have no other option than to fight, he tells me, either that or surrender, but they've chosen to fight. a few areas in isis hands are under constant intense bombard mtd, but in there, hundreds of thousands of desperate residents. as the civil yaps flee, isis retreats, because those innocent helpless people are their only protection. safe ground is still far from the world. >> children, the elderly, so many people, the faces of the many civilians caught in the
2:28 am
middle of this. >> unfortunately, we've seen those images from mosul. >> still ahead here on "newsroom," president trump in saudi arabia presently, his next stop israel. he could face key diplomatic challenges there. >> we will tell you why. that's ahead, details next. zplmplts ♪ hey, i'm the internet! i know a bunch of people who would love that. the internet loves what you're doing... build a better website in under an hour with... ...gocentral from godaddy. the internet is waiting. start for free today at godaddy.

2:32 am
miles, that's a shorter distance than the last missile test. >> that one was launched about a week ago and was according to north korea considered a success. a story we continue to follow, also the u.s. president donald trump, he has a packed schedule in saudi arabia. he is at a gathering of arab leaders in riyadh, after meeting personally with several of them. in the coming hours the president is set to five an important speech about fighting radicalism. the leaders of russia and syria are congratulating iran's president on his re-election. hasan rouhani was a force with the u.s. and other partners. if you are just joining us in the u.s. or around the world, there is breaking news we are following on the korean peninsula. south korean officials say north korea fired some type of ballistic missile. alexander field is following all the details. we understand now the white house is aware of what happened.
2:33 am
what more can you tell us? >> reporter: what we know is that the north korean regime is proving that it is absolutely powerless to test these ballistic missiles t. latest launch we are told traveled 700 miles before landing in the waters east of the peninsula. they say it has a shorter range than the three previously tested. but they say this system was tested back in february. this is raising alarm in the region as the missile tests do. we know that japan and south korea have both convened meetings of their national security council. you will expect to hear the latest provocation in the after math of those meetings, but, george, this is certainly something that has become routine in this part of the world. it has been just one week since pyongyang conducted the last missile launch. >> that launch regarded as the
2:34 am
most successful launch, not only inside north korea, also by analysts as far as the u.s., it's the last projectile launched a week ago, hit a higher altitude and farther than previous tests. it's the country's goal of developing an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of delivering a warhead to the u.s. again, white house officials are saying they are aware of the latest launch that that happened this afternoon in north korea. again, they are saying dismissal has a shorter range than the previous missile tested. but this is a flagrant violation of sanctions, you will hear that repeated by countries like japan the u.s., it's only been a week, george, since the u.s. called on all countries to please look at sanctions against north korea, you had the u.n. security council threatening the possibility of even stronger
2:35 am
sanctions t. regime in north korea showing they are not be i could -- being cowled by those threats. >> their reaction to what happened here, but let's talk about the reaction we can expect from south korea, now that country has a new president, he wanted to re-establish communication, engagement with north korea. that was a shift for previous administration, given that fact and given that we continue to see north korea test south korea with these missile launches what has been the reaction is far the mood in south korea and what could be expected no you with this? >> reporter: well, look, engagement is the buzz word, it's the promise of the party in power. it was the discussion between the envoy and president trump
2:36 am
this week. you we heard them say engagement could be possible. it could be the goal of achieving de nuclearization or talks about it. you we heard south korea repeat that engagement can only happen if conditions are ripe. actually, that's exactly the language that was used recently by a top korean dip lo massachusetts he said the doors could be opened to talks if conditions were right. we have this barrage of confrontation, we can say constant missile tests. they will come out immediately and condemn these provocations, last week, the president after the first launch of his tenure often said that south korea must respond to pyongyang in the face of these provocations. but they have continued. they hope for the possibly of engagement. it all raises the question, what could be achieved through engagement? these are countries at a standstill of how to proceed,
2:37 am
how to move forward. kim john upng-un un's regime sa they are wanting control of the peninsula. >> alexander field giving us the reporting again of what happened in north korea, the firing of this latest projectile, we will stay in touch with you as you learn more and share it with our viewers. >> now, u.s. president donald trump's next stop after saudi arabia where he is right now is israel. of course, a key american allie. >> mr. trump is pushing for a peace deal between israelis and palestinians and his visit comes at a delicate time for relations between u.s. and israel. just last week sources told cnn israel was the source of some of the classified intelligence that president trump reportedly shared with two top level
2:38 am
russian officials. another key issue, mr. trump promised as a presidential candidate to move the u.s. embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem. orin lieberman joins us now from jerusalem. we just highlighted two reasons why going into this trip, it really could end quite badly, although, at this point, the administration is keeping expectations low. in terms of what donald trump outlined through the campaign and in his first few weeks in officer, what are they expecting to get done on the ground when he arrives in israel? >> reporter: to a great extent, it is about the optics of the trip, between u.s. and israel. it's important these two leaders, benjamin netanyahu and president trump seem to be off to a better start since the end of the obama and netanyahu relations, as they deteriorated. for both of these leaders, it's important to work together, start on a clean slate after
2:39 am
their meeting in washington, a that will be the focus, make the right statement, shake if right hand, be seen in the location, trump at the western wall behind me, that will be a strong pro-israel, pro netanyahu statement. both leaders sending statements to each other about working together. for netanyahu it was at the weekly cabinet meeting saying israel is ready to host president donald trump. donald trump said he has a great love for israel and looks forward to working with netanyahu. the issues you mentioned, they are out there. they're very easy and sensitive in terms of how easy it is to set them off and create a problem here. both leaders trying to avoid the issue, leading those in washington so here it can be about all getting along together even with the sensitivities around everything that comes with meetings in jerusalem, paula. >> interesting, this president staked a claim in saying already he will try and is probably the
2:40 am
only person that can run peace to the middle east. we will be watching that trip closely in the next few hours, appreciate it. all right, again, there are many controversies back here in the united states that continue to cast a shadow on the president abroad t. fired fbi chief james comey is expected to testify publicly in the coming weeks. given the apparently strained relations between comey and president trump, his testimony could rock the white house. 2340u comey's father is speaking out after mr. trump reportedly called him a nut job. the elder comey tells cnn he believes his son was dismissed because the president was quote scared to death of him. jay brian comey said he didn't give trump 100% loyalty. he demand that of people. he said he would give honestliy, not loyalty. he added he was fired because jim tells the truth while trump
2:41 am

2:45 am
venezuela. many blame crippling shortages for a crumbling economy. saturday was the 50th day of anti-government rallies there. in is ram the government is cracking down and intimidating journalists even as the sister network in es sppaniol was take off the air. >> a warning this contains graphic video. >> reporter: pain is never worse than needed. daniel is 14, elsewhere, probably they would have kept her leg. in venezuela, chemo therapy is sort. so were the odds. the bone tumor in her leg would spread. just a little cold water, the doctor says. careful. she cries.
2:46 am
it was removed yesterday, but as often happens with amputations, strangely, she can still feel it. it feels australian him, she says, because i feel a leg that isn't there, it's gone. does it make you feel angry as a doctor a procedure like this is necessary if you could prevent it if you have the right medicine? >> yes. >> reporter: this is a society crumbling from inside where a government who tried to control everything from wages to health care to food prices, now seems to control nothing. when the body of a murder victim lies in the streets of valencia, now a common curiosity rather than a scandal. doctors sneak us into a public hospital to show why disease of this once oil rich nation thought to have vanquished decades ago are coming back. wounded protesters making good with water bottles to drain
2:47 am
wind. the medicines were brought by my family members, he says, effect na, they also brought the water to bathe me. everything. the doctors who once enjoyed modern sanitary conditions are now themselves at risk of infection, patients die from waiti waiting. when i was there last week in valencia, the doctor says 11 agree rieved the wounded arrived at 9:00. they won't be treated until some 12 hours later. people die from gunshot wounds because we cannot treat them. patients wait for hours for the universal free health care the socialist government once promised, yet now it's mismanagement means it cannot pay for. instead they seek to conceal the embarrassment, even firing the health minster after revealing child malaria figures. so now there is silence, rather than an end to the suffering.
2:48 am
nick peyton walsh, cnn, valencia. >> now, the local government says the government has been exaggerated and officials blame the drop in oil prices and the action of businessmen who favor the open six. i was in that hospital a year ago from now. the situation has been dire for more than a year. i'm not sure how many more people can take there. it's so depressing when you see people carrying their children as we did into the hospital and there not given medicine or painkillers. >> it's heart breaking. >> it continues to go on and on and on. we will be right back with more here at cnn "newsroom." mr. stevens? this is your new name. this is your new house. and a perfectly inconspicuous suv. you must become invisible.
