"cnn newsroom" starts right now.
at 5:00 a.m. on the u.s. east coast, we start the show with breaking news we're following out of canada. police there say 14 people are dead, this after a bus carrying young people on a junior hockey team and a semi truck collided. 14 others were hurt in the accident. the humboldt broncos team was on their way to a playoff game. witnesses say it took several hours for the victims to be pulled from the wreckage. this is where it happened, this part of the nation western province of saskatchewan where the hockey teams, it is a way of life for many there. the humboldt broncos posted this recent photo of the team. keep in mind we don't know exactly who was on that bus, but again, this picture of the team, those players mostly in their teens after they won a competition. the community certainly grieving given the situation here. the team statement said this,
the organization experienced an incredible tragedy. the broncos bus was involved in a terrible accident which has resulted in multiple fatalities and serious injuries. also this from the canadian prime minister justin trudeau who tweeted condolences, i cannot imagine what these parents are going through and my heart goes out to everyone affected by this terrible tragedy. let's bring in ryan mcnally, an anchor reporter for ckrm radio joining us by phone. thank you for being with us. i know that you have been in touch surely with your contacts about this bus crash. what have you learned? >> well, thanks for having me this morning. it's been a long, long night. i've learned that 14 people are confirmed dead, another 14 injured. three of those 14 are critically injured. and they are currently clinging to life right now in hospital.
it has just been a rough time for the entire province of saskatchewan, heck, let's face it the entire country of canada if you will. we've seen a lot of people rallying behind this junior "a" hockey team out of humboldt. >> and this is a part of the world where you started your career, ryan, in humboldt from a personal perspective. help our viewers understand the importance of hockey in that part of the world. what more can you tell us about in community? >> well, especially junior "a" hockey in a community like humboldt where really there is nothing else in the town that people can rally behind. people take these kids in as their own whether coming in from out of province to cokcome play it city. it is a rather small city of 7500 people mind you, and it has a small town feel that you would
expect in small town saskatchewan. and really this junior hockey team was the life breath in this community. and it is a very, very painful night and morning as we continue to learn information from this. >> and again what we understand at this point, a canadian hockey team, this bus that has crashed, 14 people killed on the bus. again, we had an image but i want to reiterate it is unclear exactly who was on that bus. and ryan you will understand the importance of that. there are families that are watching this newscast if they have not yet heard from officials, we obviously want to make sure that we let officials come forward to share the information as they are prepared to do so. ryan, thank you for being with us. and please keep us apprised. >> thank you so much. now to a new round of u.s. sanctions to tell you about.
this time targeting the russian president's inner circle. partly in retaliation for u.s. election meddling. on the list, seven powerful russian oligarchs who have close ties to vladimir putin. these people some of the wealthiest in the country. also named, 12 companies those oligarchs either owned or control and to drive it all home, the sanctions also target 17 senior russian government officials. one of the men targeted is andrey kostin. here is what he had to say to richard quest. >> i don't view the sanctions personal ones because i did nothing wrong to america, to american interests. i was always trying to promote good elbusiness relationship wi american interests. so i'm punished because the american administration concede that the russian government conducted the wrong policy and it is very unfortunate, it shows a high level of misunderstanding
on the part of the american administration of the intention of the russian government, of the russian leadership. >> moscow though is defiant toward the new sanctions. the foreign ministry promised a, quote, harsh response to it. and it also issued this statement, quote, washington continues to frighten with the rejection of american visas and threaten russian businesses with freezing property and financial assets for getting that the seizure of private property and other people's money is called robbery. we would like to advise washington to get rid of the illusion that we can be spoken to with the language of sanctions. let's bring in nic robertson following the story live in moscow. and nic, what is the overall reaction there in moscow to these sanctions? >> reporter: well, it's been one of a pushback in a limited way so far. you've heard what the foreign ministry has had to say, the trade minister has said that people affected will be
supported. we've heard from other officials saying that anyone affected will perhaps get compensation, but they will be able to find ways around the sanctions that they are facing. it didn't have a lot of air time on state television last night, about 30 seconds, which is indicative of the fact that this easter weekend here in motscow, that the government really hasn't fully formulated precisely what its response will be. the indications are that it will be a harsh response to this and when they say harsh response to any other further or similar actions that will potentially increase tensions. so where we're at at the moment, it does seem that the government is taking stock. we've certainly heard from some of the oligarchs involved who have been named in the sanctions saying it is groundless,
ridiculous and absurd. but precisely what the government is going to do in response, that hasn't been articulated yet. but i think that we can expect obviously to hear more in the coming days, perhaps not this weekend though. >> and just to push forward on that because again, russia can't exactly respond symmetrically in response to this. the response would have to be asymmetrical, yes? >> reporter: this would be, you know, typical of how we've seen russia respond in the past. part of the way that they have -- when we looked at this sort of you united front of diplomatic expulsions of russian diplomats being expelled from the united states and britain and other countries around the world, most particularly in europe, russia as treated countries a little bit differently. you know, u.s. diplomats who have been expelled from here,
pnged that in a relatively short period of time they will be -- or the possibility was there for them to be replaced. will that situation now change. but what we generally see in russia's tactics would be to try to perhaps treat some differently to others to try to sort of separate this united front that they are facing here. so in that way it may be asymmetrical. we've heard from the russian embassy in washington saying that look, when the country is put under pressure, everyone rallies mind the president. that is what is happening now. the recent elections are the strength of support that vladimir putin has at the moment. so she will shathey will shape understanding to the russian citizens, why it will push back in the way that it will push back. so it will control the message
here. but how can it inflict the significance or similar economic pain on the united states, for example one of the companies affected here is one of russia's principal arms exporters. they have said that the sanctions really just show that the united states is trying to gain unfair advantage essentially in the global sales of weapons. so, you know, how will they come back against that particular issue. it is very clear that they will come back fighting, but as i say, asymmetric is the most likely way forward. >> all right. nic robertson live for us in moscow. thank you so much. we'll stay in touch with you. there is talk of a trade war between the united states and china. it heated up on frir a friday a.
and the weaker than expected jobs report also hurt. but donald trump threatened china with $100 billion in tariffs on imports. and that is on top of the $50 billion that he has already threatened. mr. trump says that the china threat to retaliate was unfair. cnn has learned that donald trump's attorneys are preparing him for what could be one of the most important interviews of his presiden presidency, this according to a person familiar with the situation. the attorneys are reportedly going over potential topics that special counsel robert mueller may ask mr. trump, augull of th part of the investigation into russian meddling. roger stone tells cnn's anderson cooper that the president should not talk to mueller. listen. >> in your opinion, should the president ever sit down with the special counsel? >> i have written and said on info wars repeatedly that i thought it was a perjury trap,
that there is every possibility the special counsel is looking at some process related crime that didn't relate to russia. i obviously believe special counsel has a political bias as demonstrated by the fbi text messages and e-mails that have surfaced and the political nature of this investigation. so i think that it is very dangerous for the president to do so. >> roger stone there speaking with anderson cooper. keep in mind the president has not formally agreed to sit down with mueller. let's talk about all of this with political analyst ellis hennigan, a columnist and best selling author. good to have you with us. >> good to see you. >> okay. so if there is a trade war, what would the impact be? the president has had this to say about the potential of that. let's listen. >> the easiest thing for me do is close my eyes and forget it.
if i did that, i'm not doing my job be. i'm not saying there nts wouwon little pain, but we'll have a much stronger country when we're finished. >> so a little pain there, ellis. who would feel it, a little pain? >> all of us. on all corners of the world. i don't know an economist who is shrugging about this as much as the president. because there is this natural tit for tat reaction. we sock tariffs on them, they sock them on us and when it ends, nobody knows. >> but as far as the impact, just so viewers can understand exactly what that means, i mean you are talking about goods that you get at a walmart or things like that. what exactly would the impact be? >> rising prices would be the one that consumers would feel the most. george, i have to tell you, many americans are not aware of where all the goods that we use come from. and a whole lot of the cheap ones are coming from china and
other low wage countries, many of them in asia, but other parts of the world as well. and the more tariffs or taxes that you put on those imports, the higher we pay if at the cas register. >> and with regard to a possible trade war, larry kudlow tried to tamp down fears saying there is no trade war and all the talks of tariffs are only a goerk dwratdi negotiating proposal. that eased the free fall somewhat, but you only unstill steve mnuchin said that there is a potential of a trade war. that seemed to change the dynamic. so what is it here? is it a trade war or is it not? >> well, getting closer. and the dynamic as well on friday the president threatening another $100 billion worth of tariffs against the chinese. so, no, we are not there yet. they are not actually in place. but the rhetoric is going hard. and with donald trump, it is
always possible that there is talk and we pull back before the action happens. but i would say that at the moment it feels like we're skagt in th skating in that direction. >> also your perspective on the advice given by roger stone to the president. just to get a sense of whether the president should talk to robert mueller if invited to do so. your thoughts. >> first of all, be careful with the word invitation, george, because in the end the special counsel here under our laws almost certainly has the right to legally force to subpoena the president to talk. so listen, any lawyer and any political adviser would say don't do this, there is only danger here for you. but in the end, he may sflot a choi not have a choice. >> and last question, the epa director under a great deal of scrutiny right now and the question will he keep his job. is the epa director at this
point a major liability for the u.s. president? where do you see this playing out this week? >> well, you know, we all spent friday night waiting for scott pruitt to be fired. the evidence against him is just piling up. certainly politically it seems likely. the chief of staff is urging his firing. it didn't feel like he will be around much longer. but the president loves him. he's been very effective in pulling regulation off of business. and so he does have a lot of internal support. but it is getting tougher by the hour. >> ellis henican, thank you for the perspective. you're watching "cnn newsroom." still ahead, more violence to tell you about along the israel/gaza border. we'll have the latest in a live report from jerusalem as we return. plus a first hand look at one of syria's worst conflict zones. cnn reports from inside eastern ghouta on.

look at what is happening on the israel/gaza border. friday was another day of violence and death. palestinian protesters created thick black smoke from burning tires. israel says some tried to damage a security fence through explosives and fire bombs. the israeli forces responded with tear gas and water cannons, in some cases they even used
live ammunition. health officials say at least nine people were killed. the so-called march of return protests started last week. thousands of pls have been taking part in it. they are trying to reach israeli territory to reclaim what they say is palestinian land. let's get the latest from our international correspondent ian lee live in jerusalem following the story. ian, what is the expectation about this day compared to others that you have been covering? >> reporter: today we still have those people out at those camps. they are keeping a vigil if you will over the course of the next five weeks. today the situation is calmer. we are seeing though funerals of some of the people who were killed in yesterday's violence including one journalist that makes nine people killed. and the total since all the protests began last week is now at 31 people. over 2,000 people have been
injured in this violence. and it doesn't look like it's going away anytime soon. you know, we were gauging this last friday to see how long if this movement has momentum to it because you they have called for originally six weeks of protests leading up to mid may, and yesterday proved just as deadly and just as violence as these protesters tried to go to the border, they say they are trying to cross over. but for israel, that is a red line. they say that they reserve the right to use whatever forces to protect their sovereignty. and so you do have the ingredients for this friction that we see which results in these deaths and injuries. >> also israeli officials concerned about what we're seeing rilght here, these tires that have been set on fire basically to create a smoke screen. and israeli officials saying that they are concerned about how that will effect their ability to respond. what more can you tell us about
it? >> reporter: yeah, we were out at the front yesterday in the central part toward the central part of gaza. and we saw these huge columns of black smoke. and you can see them dotting the gaza border about five different camps where you could see it. and this black smoke would blow across from gaza into israel and it would obscure the sight of the israeli forces. now, gaza and palestinians say that they are doing to obscure the sight of snipers. and they were using mirrors to try to blind snipers because they are the people using the live rounds. and so they say this is to protect the protesters. israeli military though when we were talking to them, they said that this smoke also does act ascensionly a smoke screen for protesters to move closer to the border, they released the video of one protester cutting at the
fence. and they say that also makes it a more dangerous situation for the soldiers. so, you know, this is a ttactic that we've seen evolved, likely to see next week as well. and during the course of this last week, we saw them gathering thousands of tires from across the gaza strip to light them on fire to create these smoke screens. definitely something that they believe is effective. and again, probably see it again over the course of the next five weeks. >> ian lee following it all live for us in jerusalem. thank you for the reporting. now to syria, pro government forces there are getting closer and closer to seizing all of eastern ghouta. they have reportedly launched an assault on duma, the latest rebel held area. aid and monitoring groups say air strikes and shelling killed dozens on friday. rescue volunteers from the white helmets say at least 35 of the dead were civilians. state media report rebel shelling also killed four people
in nearby damascus. the fighting effectively ends a short cease fire that was in place. both sides blame each other for renewed offenses. the u.n. secretary general once described it as hell on ertz. eastern ghouta has seen some of the worst fighting in the civil war in syria. fred pleitgen recently got to see the destruction firsthand. here is his report from inside eastern ghouta. >> reporter: a drive into the waste land that used to be the damascus suburb of eastern ghouta, years ever figof fighti laid waste to what was once a thriving district. some are trying to return praying that businesses like this tomato sauce factory will come back to life. god willing he says we will try and rebuild this factory in a
fairly short time. and then start producing again. >> reporter: eastern ghouta, an area with nearly 400,000 inhabitants, was under islamic rebel control for around six years. after a fierce offensive, syrian ghoechl government forces managed to take back most of the territory displacing tens of thousands of civilians. much of eastern ghouta looks exactly like this, buildings either completely flattened or at least badly damaged. but even in this situation, people are trying to come back and bring back some semblance of life. an almost impossible task as fighting continues in areas nearby. yasar says he is lucky his apartment is still somewhat intact. life was difficult beyond description, he says, but we had to adapt to it. for instance, we had inedible barley, but we had to eat it anyway. the vast majority of eastern ghouta residents remain
displaced in shelters. while those who have been able to come back face a long and tough road trying to rebuild their district and their lives. fred pleitgen, cnn, eastern ghouta, syria. two nations trading jabs. the presidential rhetoric gets heated as fears of a u.s./china trade war grow. plus this -- >> it's a matter of concern when your largest soybean export customer is having negotiations with your government. >> the real effect of a possible trade war already being felt in farms across the united states. stay with us.

live coast to coast across the united states from london to sydney and all points in between, you are watching cnn newsroom newsroom. i'm george howell. a bus carrying a junior hockey team collided with a acceseacc accept my truck killing 14. the humboldt broncos were headed to a playoff game. it is not clear who was on the bus in the image you see here. all of the play erers though in their late teens. flnew u.s. sanctions have singled out oligarchs with close ties to vladimir putin. also targeted, 12 companies and
17 russian officials. russian foreign ministry is vowing a harsh response. doctors in the united kingdom say sergei skripal is improving rapidly, the former russian spy who was poisoned in a nerve agent attack along with his daughter. he is no longer in critical condition. and she is stable. the uk and other countries blame russia for the attack. moscow denies any involvement. and an indian court is deliberating whether to grant bail to bollywood star salman khan, he was convicted of killing a rare protected antelope and sentenced to five year. he says he is innocent and wants released while he appeals. you can call it a tit for tat raising the stakes or even trying to level the playing field, but whatever call it, the heated rhetoric of a possible trade war between the united states and china is taking its toll on the stock markets and maybe on your own bank account. just this week, there have been
threats and counter threats with the u.s. president threatening $100 billion in additional tariffs on chinese imports. but add in the confusing and contradictory messages from the white house and investors are paying the price. claire is basilisebastien repor. >> reporter: it was a down day but the selling really accelerated in the second half of the day. president trump's threat to impose an additional $100 billion in tariffs on china on top of the $50 billion both sides had already threatened really rattled already fragile stock markets. and it wasn't just the potential economic fallout. rising consumer prices, potentially slower economic growth. it was the somewhat confusing messages coming from the trump administration. first president trump took to the airwaves saying we don't have a trade war. we already lost. and then larry kudlow also said that we are not running a trade
war, we still plan to negotiate. and then steve mnuchin said into c cnbc. >> tariffs will take some period of time. there will be public comments. so while we're in the period before the tariffs go on, we'll continue to have discussions. but there is the potential of a trade war. and let me just be clear, it is not a trade war, the president wants reciprocal trade. >> reporter: voicing the market's worst fear that the trade war is actually possibe. he also avoided questions on whether the two sides were in negotiations, something the markets had been banking on and china didn't help matters either saying that it will not hesitate to fight back at any cost. in the end the dow closed down more than 500 points, nasdaq and s&p 500 also down more than 2%. the fear down here on wall street is that the weekend will bring more uncertainty and more confusion. claire sebastien, cnn money, at
the new york stock exchange. surely the impact of all this is being felt on wall st t street, but also on farm across the united states. if china follows through on its threat to raise tariffs on farm produce, many of the states that will be affected are those that voted for the u.s. president, one of those states, the state of iowa. and that is where we find martin savidge with this story. >> reporter: this could be america's next warzone. iowa. if a trade war between the u.s. and china breaks out, then america's heartland is on the front lines. and ron heck's farm will be one of the many battlefields. how worried are you? >> it's a matter of concern when your largest soybean export customer is having negotiations with your government. >> reporter: and president trump's take no prisoner negotiating style is worrying the rural constituency that helped put him in the white house. >> i have some concerns with the president. >> reporter: china is threatening to put a 25% tariff
on all u.s. soybean. the result for farmers has been a week of stomach churning value swings for a crop that hasn't even been planted yet. >> i grow more than 100,000 bushels a year. so 50 krepcent reaction is $50,. that is a big deal. >> reporter: america is the number one plroducer of soybean. >> one of every three rows that you see will end up in china. >> reporter: this is a sixth generation farmer. and his family like many, they are hoping the terrariff threat don't become a reality. >> want to encourage both governments to continue the dialogue. >> you'd like cooler heads to prevail? >> and make sure cooler heads prevail in this whole situation. >> reporter: but for this pork producer, just the threat of tariffs on pork have had a significant impact on the price he gets today for his pigs. >> a market hog right now is
only worth whenabout 1 ood. it takes me about $120 to produce it. >> reporter: he says he is losing about $2,000 a week. and is already thinking of going to the banks for loans. but crop prices aren't the only thing a trade war might jep jeopardize. there is also a real political price that republicans could pay at the midterm and beyond. the biggest pork and soybean states are overwhelmingly red states. you don't think the chinese sort of capriciously picked soybeans? >> no, they are very astute. >> reporter: his family is personally friends with chinese leader xi jinping. we visited his farm six years ago. the man now the president? >> exactly. >> reporter: as farmer calculate the cost of a potential trade war, some already have become victims. >> that is the problem.
there are innocent victims here. all rig >> reporter: which means gop leaders should be concerned with the potential cost in rural american votes. did you vote for this president? >> i did vote for in president. >> do you feel regretful? >> i want to see this play out. am i going to vote for him again? depends on who is running against him. >> reporter: martin savidge, cnn, perry, iowa. let's talk about all of this with a visiting scholar at the fordham law school, a contributor to cnn opinion. thank you so much for your time today. >> thanks for having me. >> mr. trump's top economic adviser literally found out about these tariffs on thursday evening. let's listen. >> when did the president first tell you that he would announce these additional tariffs?
>> last night. >> so it is an evolving possibility. the greatest question here, is there is a looming trade war or not? or is this somehow playing chicken or some sort of negotiating tactic in your view? >> well, trump certainly consider it is a negotiating tactic, but the fact is that what he doesn't understand is that trade is into the not a ze game. it is a multinational game. so it is not just the united states versus china or china versus the united states, which would be effectively a trade war between two countries. it is a global issue. and it drags in a whole lot of other players. if the united states doesn't have any allies in this, we'll lose. there is no doubt about that. china is a very strong and powerful country. and very strong and powerful economy. and it is single mindedly focused on one final aim, and that is making china great again. so we have to understand what
the stakes are here. and they go far beyond simply some farmers in iowa which is very big, but not necessarily the whole picture. >> this president certainly transactional and binary in his approach, but from what we've seen and this situation as you point out very nuanced, and we're hearing really some pushback from republican senators on it like ben sasse who had this to say, hopefully the president is stwrjust blowi off steam, but if he is even half serious, this is nuts, china is guilty of many things, but the president has no actual plan to win right now. he is threatening to light american agriculture on fire. he goes on to say this is the donest possib e dumbest possible way do this. your thoughts there. >> right, well, it certainly is. and one of the reasons it is is that we really haven't thought it through very effectively. if we were going into a war like this, we need allies. one of the allies that we just
threw under the bus last year was the 13 countries that were members of the transpacific partnership which trump immediately as soon as he came into office basically pulled out of. that was a huge mistake. the tpp has gone ahead, it is a potentially a huge counterweight to china, it has japan in this, australia, canada, a number of south american countries that produce the kinds of products that china could need and could turn to in lieu of the united states if these tariffs continue and actually go into effect. so really the biggest issue right now is who are we going to partner with because we can't win this alone. a trade is not a binary issue. it is a multinational issue. it is a global issue. and trump didn't seem to have appreciated that yet. perhaps he will in the future, but it could be very dangerous future. >> one point of this that many do seem to support the president on, his argument about intellectual property. many supportive of the
president's stance to do something about it. what are your thoughts on it? >> well, intellectual property has been a huge issue, no question about that. but i wonder how we approach that. do we approach it as a tariff or do we approach it as an issue between corporations. because tariffs do not affect intellectual property. it is a separate issue. just as an example, one of the retaliatory measures that china could take is severally to look at the finances of the two country. china is the largest single holder in the world of american treasury bonds, of our debt. they own $1.2 billion in our debt. if they suddenly began to unload some of that, if they stop buying our bonds in the future, that would be a huge hit to the united states, if could raise our interest rates. 12%, 15% even. this is a huge danger in the future and we have to understand
all the ramifications of this before we actually go in and take on china with trade as intellectual property, they are neither apples and oranges. >> thank you so much for your time and perspective. still ahead here on "newsroom," they are tired, hungry and desperate for a better life. we'll hear from the migrants crossing mexico in the saracara. stay with us. ...& he's got wide feet. ...& with edge-to-edge intelligence, you've got near real time inventory updates... ...& he'll find the same shoes in your store that he found online... ...he'll be one happy, very forgetful wide footed customer... at&t provides edge to edge intelligence. it can do so much for your business, the list goes on and on. that's the power of &. & if your customer also forgets... socks! ...& you could...

from mexico city. they left everything behind enchildren wien childr even children. leyla santiago spoke with one woman about her journey. >> reporter: she is from guatemala. she says because of the delink quinn s delinquencies and the violence, she left. so she is going to stay here in mexico. she is going to tijuana and from there she wants to stay there, make money and send that back to yacht mole adequate guatemala to help her children. people tell me that she are fleeing violence from either guatemala, el salvador,
