12:00 am
i'm becky anderson in jerusalem where donald trump will be just a few hours to kick off peace talks between the israelis and palestinians. trump arrives in tel aviv from saudi arabia where he urged muslim leaders to step up their fight against terror and extremism. also ahead this hour, north korea test fired another missile. >> it's north korea's second missile test within a week. and we will have reaction from the region. we want to welcome our viewers here until the united states and all around the world, i'm george howell. >> and i'm rosemary church. thanks for joining us. this is "cnn newsroom." well, u.s. president donald trump is due in israel monday after his visit to saudi arabia. now, it is first international, of course, as president and he
12:01 am
gave a major speech to muslim and arab leaders calling on men "to drive out terrorist." he has a busy couple of days and in the west bank he said, you know, to visit several key in jerusalem, including the old cities, also expect it to take part in shermny. well hol cast remembers that. separate meetings to the israeli prime minister and in bethlehem with the palestinian president. correspondent joining us, he has called a solution to the conflict ultimate deal. he has also suggested that this isn't quite as difficult as people in the past have made out. what likelihood of his success here. >> reporter: look, complete success is without question, difficult. but he certainly can make bits
12:02 am
and progress here and there on some of the issues. that's because some of the issues are either solvable or you can work and build in progress there. it's never been just about the issues. it's been about the political will on both sides which has been lacking and that's where president donald trump can bring to bear quite a bit of leverage on both sides to make sure that will is there right now under trump as he tries to make progress on peace process here. >> so you just suggested that he can use some sort of leverage, what does he have, at this point? >> he has a few options with both the palestinians and the israelis. with the palestinians he's now off to a strong start with the arab states and they can bring to bear pressure to make concessions on some of the issues to the israelis that will help to bring the political will there. that will help make progress. the u.s. gives the palestinians $440 million a year in aide so
12:03 am
trump can increase or decrease that money to put pressure on the palestinians. first he can recognize the sovereignty over the occupied goal on heights, which is 50 years ago, that would be a major political win if america recognized that as part of israel. he can release jonathan poll lard from the terms of his probation. he was spying for israeli. he was convicted, served his sentence, but in terms of his probation don't let him come to israel. if he allows him to come to political that too will be another win. let's not forget because he's republican, republican senate and congress, he can bring to bear pressure from both democrats and republicans to make concessions, so trump when it comes to his options for leverage on both sides here has quite a bit of options, questions, which of those does he use to make sure the necessity and the ability to making concessions is there.
12:04 am
>> well, let's talk about those choices. thank you with david at cc founding editor of the times at israel and former editor at the jerusalem post, suggesting that there are a number of choices strategies that donald trump and administration might take into trying to provide a resolution to this conflict. some of which are pretty explosive and some of which are less. where do you see him positioning himself at this point? >> i think it's very unpredictable with this president. we see him coming here. we see him not afraid to make some history. he's going to be the first serving president to go to the western wall. there are maybe some rules that some decided never to break. i don't think he's not a details person. he's like just get it done like force of presidential will. drive out the terrorism.
12:05 am
just do the deal, you both say you want peace. >> he's a transactional man, we know that, if nothing else. he likes a transaction, he likes a deal. he's called this the ultimate deal, should he be able to sort it out. i wonder how you read his trip to react and the purchase of influence by the saudiis and to the tune of 2 to 300 and how that trip and issues will effect what happens here. >> very interesting, the massive scale of saw dee investment in the united states, there's a mutually dependent resolution, it means they have a certain amount of leverage in the united states. from the israeli perspective, one of the things to say, saudis have to affirm it in arabic meetings. we're all very happy that's he's
12:06 am
the president coming to the earliest in terms rg no president will come this early. he's meeting -- i think we'll hear him saying lots of lovely things about israeli. he's made a partnership which has its own view. >> it's influencing, iranian influence, that is something, he promise will and we seem to be seeing this regional coalition relationship between the u.s., saudi. and israel, a lot of people will say those are very hard big fellas. >> very much say. we maybe can pass this with the administration, he went to the wall while he spoke in cairo, was criticized a bit for not addressing historical sovereignty. we're talking about israel in
12:07 am
the context of holocaust and going home. in his speech he barely mentioned them at all. he didn't say, you have to make peace with israel. some strange missing bits as well. no mention in that huge appeal to the muslim world to be better, to fight terrorism, to rule out extremism, to stay with us, would have been make peace with israel for goodness sake, didn't say it. >> for you today, mr. trump will arrive in israel after giving a major speech in saudi arabia on sunday, speaking to muslim leaders, he had a lot to say about terrorism. not so much perhaps on a human right. >> we're not here to lecture. we are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship. instead, we are here to offer
12:08 am
partnership based on shared interest and values. better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and drive out the extremists. drive them out. drive them out. of your places of worship. drive them out of your communities. drive them out of your holy land. and drive them out of this earth. >> well, more on many trump's visit to saudi arabia, nick robinson is in reaction. the president and his delegation now on the tarmac, if not in the air are on their way to hear israel. how do you describe all or interpret what was said about
12:09 am
donald trump on sunday? >> you know, he was speaking to the audience here. there were 55 kings, presidents, prime ministers from the arab region from muslim majority nations. his message was couched for them, particularly for saudi and particularly for the gulf region. there was reassurance, that reassurance, we've got your back and there was the aspiration that muslim are being the principle victims and extremist killings that go on that we can work together that this is about better future for all of our children that was con joeling, that we're not here to tell you what to do, we have a shared interest, let's work on it. there was demanding as we heard just then, froze them out of your places -- throw them out of your places of worship, throw
12:10 am
them out of your land. it was targeted specifically for the audience and of course, no mention at home, no hidden team was negative about muslim and mission to his attempted racial ban, but with several countries throughout the united states. if you had walked into that room for the first time and didn't know donald trump, you'll think this is a guy that kind of understands where we're at. yes, we can all push forward for this together, that's not really how the world works, but if you suspended belief for that half hour of speech, that would be the take away, obviously, he steps very much in for the real world on that plane coming to you. >> using that speech, nick, to praise some muslim majority countries, taking refugees, let's hear it. >> i also applaud your turk and lebanon for their own in hosting refugees the surge of migrants
12:11 am
and refugees and living so poorly, that they're forced to leave the middle east. depletes the human capital needed to build stable societies and societies. instead of depriving this region of so much human, middle eastern countries can give young people hope for brighter future in their home nations and regions. >> talk of refugees clearly the conflict, or the conflict in this region has resulted in so many people's lives being destroyed, not just in the past six years during the syrian refugee crisis, but way back when. how will that part of the speech, do you think, be taken on board by people around the
12:12 am
middle east region, particularly, youngsters? >> i'm coming from a president that has assured the united states taking in the refugees from this region, in particular, his track record, again, no one at the meeting raising a head about the track record and say there's a bit of deceptive came later. on the issue of refugees, it was part of that message, you've got to doo part -- got to do part of the work here, this is your responsibility. it's wrapped into the inspirational part. this is your your young people and we need to create a better future for them. it seemed hard what he really meant there. it's not a message -- it's not just a message for the region, if you will, look at the political -- that have come principally from syria and other parts of the world as well.
12:13 am
that's instability. so the notion that the region has done a good job, the region needs help. this is a regional job at issue, when it seems as trump gets back toward everything, it comes down to the money, you know, you've got to pay for nato if you're the nato countries. here in the middle east, you know, you've got to fings this problem, it's your problem, don't expect the united states to take on the burden, that's part of his narrative, if you will, that's part, i think the message of that part was pitched somewhere in the middle there. >> yeah, all right, so 10 past 10:00 or so. a lot of money being offered up out of that part of the trip to the tune of some $400 billion the trump delegation now set to leave many time now on your way
12:14 am
here to tel aviv in israel a trip that will be symbolic if air force one does what they say or do and take a direct flight here from the saudi arabia kingdom to israel, that will be a first. many say this -- under the radar of being flights before. those are only reports, a symbolic trip in many ways then here for the u.s. president and he will be here, as i say, in the next couple of hours. back to you guys. >> becky anderson, thank you so much. the other big story we're following this day, north korea, once again, defieing the international community. >> he says he's ready to mass produce and deploy deployment of the election of rth -- donald trump.

12:19 am
kim jong un said the missile test was perfect. >> it flew about 300 miles before landing in the sea, that's a shorter range that the last missile launched just about a week ago. cnn is across the region let's start with paula hancocks live across the region. good to have you this hour. it marks the second time south korea has been tested, a new president who has expressed interest with more engagement with the north, how is the government reacting to this? >> well, george, the official line is that the officials are calling this reckless and irresponsible. so they are condemning it, so exactly the same way that the previous government here in south korea condemned it. but, of course, it is a different precedent. the former had a more hard line approach to north korea. we know that the new liberal president is proengagement, he's prodialogue with north korea, of course, it makes it very
12:20 am
difficult to see how that would happen when you have two missile tests. we did a week in this respect. we do know what we'll say for the defense ministry here. they say angel lens shows that they are making progress. they say that north korea has secured meaningful data for improving the credibility of its missile technology, so this missile launch that we saw on sunday, they say, did push it forward, the one interesting part of it, as well, when you're looking at the reentry of the missile, reentry into the atmosphere, they showed pictures of earth which they claim were taken from that missile that were in the indianapolis fear. >> forum, i wanted to ask you about that progress. it is difficult to assess, isn't it, given we're looking at two missile tests within a week and now they're talking about being ready to deploy and mass produce these median range ballistic missiles, how concerned should
12:21 am
the region and indeed the world be with this news? >> well, certainly they are concerned that the fact that just a week ago it was described as the most successful missile that north korea has ever launched. so, certainly, that was a very big call from certain analyst. they were saying it's significant it shows they're working on the reentry technology. this technology that they absolutely have to nail that before they can have an aim. and certainly, last week and this week shows they have some capability in that respect, although, intelligence are trying to figure out how stable that reentry actually was. >> all right, paula hancocks joining us there from seoul in south korea after 4:20 in the afternoon. many thanks to you. want to get the perspective now from two other key countries in
12:22 am
the nuclear crisis, china and japan. david mckenzie is in beijing and in tokyo. will, let's start with you, what's japan saying about this news that north korea is poised to deploy and mazz produce a medium range ballistic missile. ? >> well, there really is -- as we've seen condemnation, everyone from japanese prime minister, who said that he will does this with president trump at the g 7 meeting this week to japan's chief cabinet secretary who said that japan will not tolerate this kind of activity. as is often the case, this missile -- it was launched in the direction of japan and even though it didn't come as close to the japanese coast as some other launches we've seen in the past, most noticeably that simultaneous missile launch at least three missiles came within three lending an -- an area of
12:23 am
water at the exclusive economic zone, very close to the mainland. this is still very troubling for the japanese government. >> and will, you, of course, traveled to north korea on numerous occasions. you have a unique understanding of how the leadership views the country's nuclear's goal. what a's the end game here? >> the end game for the north koreans is a seat at the table internationally. their strategy has been that these missile launches, obviously they've gained technical information. it's been a geo political theater, you look at the timing, although we can never read the minds to know exactly why they choose certain days and times. this happened a matter of hours before president trump's major foreign policy speech in saw dee ayab ya. it happened before a major global economic forum kicked off in beijing. this is a way for north korea to tell the world hey, we're still
12:24 am
here and developing the sanctions you put on the country and, officials on the ground have told me repeatedly, rosemary, they want to be acknowledged as nuclear power, they say they're programs are not up for negotiation and they're in the willing to trade them for some sort of a deal. they want to be recognize as a nuclear state and they would like a dialogue with the rest of the world on your own terms. >> with that reaction from tokyo, it is nearly 4:25, many thanks. >> now live to the chinese capital -- --
12:25 am
and they're pushing towards dialogue and consultation, now, you could have taken that statement and really seen the exact same statement in previous launches. and the fact that they waited some 24 hours after this happened shows the chinese are looking to react in a way they see as proportion gnat to the action by north korea. i think it will be a very different story should there be nuclear test in north korea, that might be taken publicly a lot more seriously. as you've been hearing from my colleagues there, china certainly is the place in this position that it's seen as, in someway, the reason or the way to this situation but, in fact, china hasn't been able to do much to stop these tests. >> on that point, david, here is the question, so, again, the
12:26 am
world does look to china, the united states, the president of the u.s., donald trump has leaned on china to use its leverage regarding north korea, but the question is this, is there more than -- that rather china can do to maintain stability and reign in north korea, or is that bit of volatility in any way helpful to china? >> well, i think -- i don't think the volatility is helpful to china. i think what will be harmful to china, from their perspective, is if the regime was threatened in a way. china has said that it is -- it is pushing the north korea sanctions to the letter of those sanctions and say any further steps need to be taken up with the un security council, you have had president trump repeatedly saying publicly, that china is an answer to the problem of north korea. china is the one that can pressure, if they wish, north
12:27 am
korea, but china is real calculation on this is far more complex than that and up until this point, they haven't been able to pressure any slow down in those missile test. >> it does put china in the driving seat, the main street as seen by many world powers. david mckenzie, thank you so much, david, for the time today. still ahead here on "cnn newsroo newsroom", the first stop with saudi arabia, now it's on to israel. >> u.s. president trump the details on what he hopes to achieve, that's coming up next. stick around.
12:28 am
12:29 am
12:30 am
12:31 am
a very warm welcome back to have us here around the united states. i'm rosemary church. >> i'm george howell. this hour, the u.s. president donald trump is due in israel in the coming hours following his trip to saudi arabia, that's where he gave a speech on fighting extremism. he'll be greeted at the tel aviv airport by prime minister and the president there. tuesday he is scheduled to hold talks with prime minister. leader kim jong un said the latest test of the missile was perfect. it flew about 300 miles into that 500 kilometers sunday before landing at the sea. that's the shorter distance about a week ago. that test was considered a
12:32 am
success. >> we've learned another protester in venezuela has died in the antigovernment demonstration taking place in that country. the attorney general says that now brings the death toll to 48 people dead. demonstrators are demanding the president step down with the country in an economic crisis. it has the opposition of staging a coup. police arrested 34 people known as crack land, about 500 police officers were part of the raid early sunday morning. they arrested a dealer known as fb who is believed to be a boss in downtown south parliament. >> all right, welcome back. u.s. president donald trump arrives to israel in just a few hours. he'll have a packed agenda. he will be shadowed by lingering, of course, at home, joining me now is my colleague, he's with me here in jerusalem.
12:33 am
and donald trump is in the air and en route for what is his second stop on this first presidential trip. and it's fair to say that before he even arrives, he'll be making history traveling on what will be the first trip between the saudi kingdom and israel. symbolic, indeed. but what likelihood that he can make history here and cut, what he calls, the ultimate deal. >> i don't think anyone is too optimistic he can close the ultimate deal between the peace agreements. he's determined to reignite some peace process, negotiations, meetings, make no mistake, these would be accomplishments. he doesn't have to close the final deal to make steps that have to be viewed as accomplishments. >> so who is offering what at this stage. is it clear. >> we've heard from the israelis a few steps they've taken as economic steps towards the
12:34 am
palestinians, not concessions, but some economic steps, expanding building area c, which is israeli -- under governance in west bank. opening the crossing between the west bank and jordan for 24 hours instead of the hours it's open today and few smaller steps like that. these are not major concessions, it's important to know the officials say this is because of trump, he's asked for these and these are the steps israelis will take. >> talk to the palestinian side in a moment, perhaps find out what might be on the table so far as the palestinians are concerned. is a u.s. embassy move from tel aviv to jerusalem, which will be highly controversial, is that now off the table. >> it seems like it very much is off the table. trump, technically, has until the end of the month to decide. he could decide after he's back in the u.s. he's realized to do so, to move the embassy and recognize jerusalem as capital of israel
12:35 am
will scuttle of him pursuing a peace deal. he's backed off there. that's a message you would have heard from the arab states, don't move the embassy. he's heeding that advice, at least for now. >> very briefly, donald trump leaves saudi arabia with the offer of $400 billion in purchases of u.s. military weaponry over the next ten years. some will say a lot of influence in what they say is an effort to counter iranian influence in this region, which will be music to the ears of benjamin. >> to some extent. it strengthens the antirun alliance, de facto alliance between some of the other gulf states. some ministers have expressed some reservations about such a big deal, $110 billion in arms because it threatens, they see as threatening the qualitative military edge, they've gotten
12:36 am
the latest weapons, the newest tactical gear and giving them $110 billion they worry might give them at risk. >> just in the first instance and more to come. thank you. >> any time. his last political move hamas calling president trump bias. and hamas controls gaza, it denounces u.s. president trump fabrications in front of the arab and muslim kings and leaders, trump included the islamic movement hamas in his terrorism list. he denied the palestinian people the right to resist, which is a legitimate and sacred right to liberate the land and holy places, they said. well, during his speech in saudi arabia, sunday, mr. trump did mention hamas along with isis and hez bobollahhezbollah.
12:37 am
they're considered a u.s. terrorist organization. joining us now, tv founder of the palestinian national initiative. before we talk about what the palestinians might offer and what are these negotiations for the ultimate deal as the u.s. president calls it, what did you take away from donald trump's speech in on sunday. >> well, he sounded more like businessman than a statesman. that's the first impression. second, unfortunately there were three major words missing from his speech. the word occupation, there's military occupation of palestine which has continued so far for 50 years. i think next week it will be 50 years since we were occupied by israel. the second word is sentiment,
12:38 am
legal sentiment activities by israel. and third one, to establish palestinian independent state as the solution to the on going confrontation that is taking place. and their concentration, again, is happening on the same terms of the disease rather than the causes of the disease. terrorism, conflict, the fight, they're all symptoms which are problem that has been there for more than 70 years which is the issue and it will not be dissolved unless the occupation ends and unless palestinians and feels like it. >> do you see donald trump as in any way having the bank of the palestinians at this point? >> well, i think mr. trump is facing evidence of the situation here. he knows very well and his team
12:39 am
knows very well, that to be able to move forward in this place, he has to pressure the israeli government. this is israeli government is so extreme to the extent that many ministers in this government were refusing even to meet mr. trump. they're sitting in the cabinet seats, some that want to kill the solution, that's declared, these are confirmed informations, that if he moves with negotiations with the palestinians, they'll break down his government. unless mr. trump has the guts and the will to pressure israel, to immediately see sentiment activities and allow palestinians to have their own state, we will, unfortunately, see another round of at least process that is a substitute to peace. what we need is not a process, we need the end result, which is the peace. that's what we're missing for 50
12:40 am
years. >> so what is the palestinian strategy, then, at this point, as you see it? clearly, if you can convince donald trump that it is in the interest of american national security that he do business with and provide a equitable solution for the palestinians, that will, in and of itself, be a result, correct? >> absolutely. and unfortunately we all know that many american leaders know that. that was sold and set by ex-president of the united states jimmy carter, by many american officials. the question here is whether that policy of the united states is really following the american interest or the israeli.

12:48 am
but also for their muslim brothers and sisters. they also say they learned about standing up for the poor, for the lgbtq community and say these teachings are straight from pope francis and don't believe that he vice president mike pence represents those teachings. >> either we are all notre dame or none of us are. if you are trying to silence and not listen to the preferences of group and their families you're not listening to any of us. that was a speech or i guess that was what we wanted to say today. to the administration more so than anyone else the administration, you need to listen to our peers and their families and concerns when you decide who to invite to our graduation. >> some context is important here because about 3100 students received degrees and between 75 and 100 students today up and
