union, right? jeanne moos, cnn. >> we've got a wicked shimmy up here. >> reporter: new york. virginia's democratic governor ralph northam is facing growing criticism and calls to step down after this racist photograph from his 1974 medical school yearbook page. >> that photo and racist attitudes it represents does not reflect that person i am today. >> we don't know he is the one in black face, we don't know if he's the one wearing the kkk garb. >> i accept respond for my past actions, and i'm ready to do the hard work of regaining your trust. >> he is planning on continuing his term and not resigning. >> you go after donald trump for his racism and his bigotry, there's no way you cannot call for ralph northam to not resign. >> there's absolutely no way to remain in an office of trust and authority which is what the governor's office is.
>> announcer: this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. good statd morning to you. virginia governor ralph northam is facing pressure from all sides to resign, after that racist yearbook photo surfaced. from his 1984 medical school yearbook showing men in black face and a klu klux klan robe. pressure to resign from this yearbook page surfaced that here's cnn's suzanne malveaux. >> virginia's democratic governor ralph northam is facing calls to step down after this racist photo emerged from an 1984 yearbook page. it shows a person in black face and another dressed in a klansman hood. and robe, publicly confronted with the photo, northam
confirmed that he is in fact one of the people in the picture but declined to say which. he apologized and vowed to show virginians he had changed and would do so for the remainder of the term. >> that photo and the racist and offensive attitudes it represents does not reflect that person i am today, or the way that i have conducted myself as a soldier, a doctor and a public servant. i am deeply sorry. i cannot change the decisions i made. nor can i undo the harm my behavior caused then and today. >> the photo is from 1984 when northam was 25 years old at the time from the eastern virginia medical school. under the photo, lists his alma mater virginia military institute. his interests pediatrics and a quote saying there are more old drunks than old doctors in this world so i think i'll have another beer. northam's yearbook from his time at the virginia military institute in 1981 revealed that he had two nicknames, goose and
coonman. the reaction from many political corners has been fast and furious. it was first reported by big league politics, followed by the virginia gop caucus calling for his resignation. well, since then, some of northam's most powerful allies are also calling for him to step down. the naacp tweeting black face is any manner is always racist and never okay. no matter the party affiliation, we cannot stand for that behavior. the president of pro choice had been vocal earlier in the week during the abortion controversy, now saying that he's got to go. along with planned parenthood and the mayor of richmond, virginia. several democratic presidential candidate as well. this from senator kamala harris saying leaders are called to a higher standard and the state of racism should have no place in the halls of government.
this from the richmond times dispatch editorial, quote, he is by all accounts a decent and considerate man. and yet his poor judgment has undermined his standing with virginians in way that we believe to be governor. and calling on him to reflect to move forward giving him more time. the big question, of course, will northam heed these calls if this chorus grows louder, the next 24 hours. will he survive? suzanne mall volkswagen, cnn, washington. >> and you heard kamala harris there saying the state of racism who have no place in the halls of government. we have julian castro who was the first 2020 democratic candidate who called for northam's resignation. he spoke to don lemon last night. >> no matter whether somebody is a republican or democrat, that
kind of behavior was racist and inexcusable. and if we're going to ensure that these types of things don't continue to happen in our country, then we need to hold people accountable for their action actions. >> other 2020 hopefuls weighing in calling for him to resign. senator cory booker tweeted this, these images showing anger, anguish and racial violence. from gkirsten gillibrand, there are two set of rules for our friends and our foes. right is right and wrong is wrong. >> let's have errol louis. do you expect him to make it to next friday?
>> oh, no, i'm not sure he's going to make it to next monday, to be honest with you, victor. to add to suzanne's competent report, the virginia black caucus of their state legislature met with governor northam and came out and released a statement saying we think he's got to go. the virginia senate, he just doesn't seem to have any allies here. there's nobody here standing up for him and these are the people who know him best. if there's been some outpouring of people from the legislative black caucus and others saying, we know him, he's useful. if they come up with any kind of an combinatioexplanation, that one thing. but the reality is, the people who know him best have decided the benefits he might get by helping him to survive are outweighed by the atrocious behavior that he displayed as a 25-year-old not so long ago. >> errol, he hasn't specified which person he is in that picture. does it matter?
>> you know, it's absolutely fascinating, right? i mean if your choices is i was the guy in black face or i was the guy in the klan hood, you know you're in really, really bad shape. i have to say, i graduated from college in 1984, so we're around the same age. there's no explanation of, well, the times were different back then. i mean, this is for, you know, for our generation, it was very, very clear where things stood. you know, this is 20 years after the height of the civil rights movement, even in virginia, things had really moved beyond this. so, this kind of caricature, if he had any kind of explanation, he really needed to make it right up front. the fact that we haven't heard it and he seems to be baffled and confused about this, it impairs what happened in the life of public service. he spent time in the military. and his father was a judge.
it's not like he was in an isolated corner of segregated south. this is a person who was supposed to have moved beyond that. he portrayed himself that way. he served as lieutenant governor. he's in the corner. i just don't think he makes it through this. >> seeing from whom we haven't heard and several democratic candidates we read here have called for him to resign. but there are several who have not. is this one of those things where a potential presidential candidate can sit on the side, see what happens over the next 24 to 48 hours? or do you expect that they all have to come out and say something? >> yeah. people will have to come out and say something. because, look, black voters are part of the democratic base. they are about a fifth of the vote in virginia. they're even higher percentages, depending on the early states that you're looking at, a state like south carolina. you cannot afford to alienate, or ignore or somehow look past,
one of the core issues for one of your core constituents. so if you're a democrat seeking national office, that's why they all came out so quickly, kamala harris, and kirsten gillibrand and cory booker, they came out quickly because they have to look voters in the face and say, i'm going to stand up for you, i'm going to fight for you. there's no exception for, you know, we had a guy, we sort of wanted to keep him in place. so, we wanted to overlook something that was clearly offensive. it's just not going to work that way. in addition to everything else, ralph northam is the victim of really, really bad political timing. >> okay. so, a lot of people have said, a lot of analysts say, his apology was just enough. let's listen to part of what he had to say. >> that photo and the racist and offensive attitudes it represents does not reflect that person i am today or the way that i have conducted myself as a soldier, a doctor and a public servant.
i am deeply sorry. i cannot change the decisions i made, nor can i undo the harm my behavior caused then and today. >> he's brought american support since he was elected, errol. it fair to accept that he's not the same person that he is today? >> well, we all change our skin cells over seven years, right? look. that's not the way apologies go, actually for -- not just political apologies, but apologies in real life. >> what did you need to hear? what did you need to hear? >> well, the way it's supposed to work -- first of all, you don't talk about the photo, you talk about yourself, right. nobody is complaining about the photo. they're talking about the guy in the photo. he can't even make up his mind about that. that's the first problem. the second is that you're not supposed to simply say i'm sorry. the idea is to sort of really put -- show that you can put yourself in the shoes of those
you have harmed. and sort of say, if i were a black virginian, i would be mortify if i were a black virginian, i would feel denigrated and disspreeblgtedi disrespected. if i were a black virginian, i'd wonder if my governor is really opposed to racism. is he in favor of civil rights law? show that you actually get it as opposed to telling us what you can't do. in the statement he says, i can't undo the harm, but i really am sorry. that's not really the way reconciliation works. >> it will be interesting, errol, to see and hear from justin fairfax, the lieutenant governor of virginia who recent with sent out a tribute to robert. we e. lee. after that decision, what he will have to say about the governor of virginia, whether
he's the guy in the hood or the guy in black face, maybe he'll tell us one day. errol louis, thank you. breaking news, moscow fire ing back. vladimir putin said russia is suspend the treaty and will start constructing a new medium-range supersonic nuclear missile. >> this treaty you remember was signed with the usrr with during the colder war with an intention of preventing an arms race. the u.s. said russia has been violating that agreement since 2017. oren liebermann is joining us from moscow. oren, are you surprised they're saying let's get back into the missile business? >> based on what the kremlin said and what russia has said over previous weeks and months it's clear that russia expected some u.s. suspension or withdrawal from the inf treaty and russia looks like they had their response lined up isn't
what president vladimir putin called a tit for tat with the u.s. and russia firing back that accusation that in fact it was the u.s. that has been in violation of this treaty for decades. that came out of a meeting this morning, between putin, his defense minister and his foreign minister. so russia has made their intentions clear. if the u.s. isn't going to be in this treaty. russia sees no reason to be in this treaty. putin said there should not and will not be an arms race between the u.s. and russia. just after saying that, russia announced the development of a new missile called the caliber missile. in its current format it's a sea-baseded me yim range hyper sonic missile. russia said they would be grounding the missile. in other words developing the missile to make it a ground-based missile and that would be a clear violation of the treat tey. but that treaty doesn't hold any water nor the russians or the u.s. at this point.
putin has said in the past and russia has said in the past is that perhaps a multilateral agreement is possible but putin also saying the russians will not be the ones initiating the conversation on a multilateral agreement if that's what other countries want to pursue. so russia has said, look, we're suspending our participation in this treaty. the ball is essentially in somebody else's court and firing off that accusation once again that russia has seen no evidence and the u.s. hasn't shown any evidence that it's in violation where russia is saying it is in fact the u.s. violating the treaty for years now. >> oren liebermann, thank you so much. we appreciate it. this is the cover of the "new york daily news" out today. you'll see today, i guess to be a nuclear explosion here. this cloud of fire. and the faces of president putin and president trump there, play "playing with fire" this was tweeted out by the "new york
daily news" with the question weapons of mass destruction? this is how they're treating this decision to withdraw. one call and that was all. manufacturing giant foxconn reversing course after president trump phones the chairman. we'll talk about that, next. and it's professional football's biggest day for the scandals and controversies plaguing the nfl. threatening to overshadow the big game. ♪we gonna do what they say can't be done♪ ♪we've got a long way to go ♪and a short time to get there.♪ ♪i'm eastbound, just watch ole bandit run♪ whatever party you've got going in the back, we've got the business up front. with expedia, i saved when i added a hotel to our flight. so even when she grows up,

another reversal from manufacturing company foxconn, the taiwan-based electronics company will produce flat screen panels the a new plant in wisconsin. now, that announcement comes shortly after president trump spoke to foxconn chairman terry guo. the company considered removing manufacturing jobs from the wisconsin facility. that's because president trump toyo touted the new plant as proof of
jobs moving back to the united states. joining me is republican comment ter jose er, and good news for the president, got a statement from foxconn, good friday. >> yeah, this jobs report exceeded anyone's expectations, certainly a sign that we're in for a good 2019 ahead. i want to point out it took just one phone call from president trump, i think it took more than that, but if it took a phone call from president trump to keep jobs in wisconsin i applaud that. foxconn was used in 2017 as an excuse an example of why we should be skeptical of president trump's manufacturing. they actually promised a plant in 2013 under president obama
and didn't deliver on that promise. >> great to have a "washington post" economics reporter on the show. heather, it says the campus will serve as both an advanced manufacturing facility, as well as a hub of high-tech knowledge and innovation. still, no clarity on the percentage of each, and as joseph points out and i'm sure you will, there was a promise a few years ago that never came to fruition. still reason to be excepts cske? >> i agree with joe, i hope they can make this come to fruition for the people of wisconsin. they've promised in brazil. they've promised in india. they promised in indonesia, and they have not delivered those jobs. as joe pointed not my hometown of harrisburg, pennsylvania, there was a big promise to deliver hundreds of jobs there. none of those have ever materialized. so it's not surprising to see foxconn trying to back out again here. and while the president has tweeted that the deal is back on, or that things seem to be
moving forward, and i'm encouraged by that i would note, the company has not made any promises about when it will break ground, when it will start hiring. and it's still unclear, what, if anything, workers, particularly, blue collar workers, would do at the facility in wisconsin. they initially were supposed to be building flat screens that could be used on televisions. the company still seems hesitant to commit to that particular industry. >> so, joseph, let's explore this then. if you're bringing up the skepticism and the inability or refusal for foxconn to make good on the 2013 deal, then why are you so confident that the 2019 statement, that's as much as we got, yeah, they will be both there now, that bring any more blue collar jobs after the phone call or more as you suggest from the president? >> look, i think manufacturing jobs is something the president is quite comfortable talking about. and it's something that presents one of the clearest and most stark dwirchss betw differences between his
administration and the past. i think it's something like 400,000 jobs created by president trump it's in last year. >> that's not my question, though, joseph. my question is if this is a reason to celebrate accomplishments on the president's behalf or perhaps supporters, what ghifs you that confidence if you brought up the 2013 commitment to bring manufacturing jobs and foxconn didn't make good? why are you convinced this will be any better? >> like i'm saying, there have been 450,000 manufacturing jobs created because of the change in environment. as heather reported, back in 2016, there was a chorus line of people predicting, as president obama did that these mr. ing jobs would never come back. we've renegotiated the tpp -- the tpp, we've renegotiated the usmca, we deregulated the jobs act. i think the economic situation is far different today in 2019 than 2013. >> we'll hear the narrative. let's see if we get specifics.
let's talk about the january 2019 jobs numbers. 450,000 jobs created. heather, we're hearing a lot of analysts saying that the shutdown did not impact jobs numbers. but you've got a piece out explaining how in fact 2 did. explain. >> it is a complicated one, but i'll try to break it down. >> give us a few points at least. >> all right. the shutdown had no impact on the 403,000 jobs created. most of those jobs were created in the private sector. even though those workers were on furlough from the federal government, they were still counted as employed because they were going to be paid -- they would ultimately receive pay. so, the labor department said, okay, they were technically employed on january 12th, even though they were on furlough. where the shutdown did impact the jobs numbers is we saw that unemployment rate cream up to 4%. that's still a very low number, but that's where we did see the
shutdown and the furloughed workers having an impact. the unemployment rate is calculated by literally going house to house. and for an american asking people are you employed or are you unemployed? and of course, many furloughed workers said, hey, we're temporarily unemployed right now. >> joseph, the last couple seconds here. the president said his congressional conference committee on border security is a waste of time, suggesting that he will then declare a national emergency. emergency suggest there is no time to waste. so why is he waiting two weeks to declare it? doesn't that undermine his point of it being an emergency? >> look, i think when you're talking about federal contracts a few months is not going to make a difference in a multiyear project to build a border wall. i think it is right to portray the border problem as a national emergency. there are more people dying from hair width and fentanyl overdoses now than car crashes and aids and all of the things we faced as a country as a problem in the past. so, i wouldn't be surprised if
the deal does collapse because of the democrats' refusal to budge back to the position they were in prior administrations. >> yes, you understand the wall is not going to stop the amount of drugs coming through the ports of entry. we've done this for weeks now. and the facts from cdp on where the drugs are coming in. the question is if it's a national emergency, emergency means there has to be a reaction now. and day after day, when the president says we're wasting our time, it seems like he's contradicting his point with the first sentence with the second one. >> look, victor, if we're convinced we're wasting our time with a border wall, i'm happy to get democrats' support with that. that's a criticism that trump would love to face. if democrats want to come on board and they can actually come to the table in this conference committee and negotiate. >> saying it's a national emergency, again, emergency suggests there's no time to waste. but he says this is a waste of time, joseph borelli, heather long, thank you both. >> thank you. well, distractions and

always looked frightened. i always feel bad for him. >> yeah. they drag him out of a hole every year and scream in his face. just put me back. it's what, 7:30 on the east coast. >> and somebody tweet me if you know the answer to this. they said in over 130 years he's never been wrong, is that true? >> i doubt it. you have to have a reason to come back for the 131st. >> absolutely. happy groundhog day, everybody. happy early spring. we hope after this last week, week and a half, that would be good news. >> move the mike, he's not going to say anything. >> does he run? i don't know, what if they do? >> who wants to listen? >> i don't know. tomorrow, big super bowl. there's a industdegree of scrut. >> yeah. there are some instructions following to to atlanta. >> got the calls for halftime supporters to take a knee in
support of colin kaepernick. to the controversy surrounding the call that helped the rams get into the game, a certain degree of distraction remains. cnn's nick valencia explains. >> reporter: there's been so much chatter about this year's super bowl halftime show, it's almost eclipsed chatter about the game itself. critics say entertainers should have passed to show solidarity for colin kaepernick. rihanna, the nfl's first choice reportedly declined her performance to show her support for the quarterback. ♪ >> reporter: so should maroon 5 have accepted the gig, in his only interview ahead of sunday's game, the group's frontman adam levine said he considered the decision. >> we respected it. and it speaks to the music. >> reporter: kaepernick, the star athlete turned activist has been a free agent since 2016. essentially radioactive, jobless, despite the belief of many that he can help someone's team. many see his unemployment as
retribution for kneeling during the national anthem. his right to protest and the treatment of him as a player has led some fans to boycott the nfl. rodney carmichael says with the game in atlanta, the nfl missed a chance to highlight diversity from local acts. >> because of where they stand politically on this kaepernick issue and refusing to see his protests over racial injustice as just that, they're missing out on the opportunity to score a lot of goodwill and a lot of great ratings by having this be the kind of hip-hop homecoming halftime show that it should have been. >> reporter: the two other acts signed on, atlanta native big boy and travis scott and even gladys knight who will sing the national anthem also felt the heat. but carmichael says fans should put more belief on the performers than the nfl. in a conference this week, nfl commissioner roger goodell
sidestepped any responsibility for kaepernick not being in the league. >> i think if the team decides that colin kaepernick or any other player can help their team win, that's what they'll do. they want to win, they'll make that decision individually in the best interest of their club. >> reporter: a decision to cancel thursday's news conference traditionally meant for the halftime performer only added to criticism. maroon 5's adam levine said it was the decision to do so. >> we're going to keep doing what we're doing. hopefully, we're not becoming politicians, to make people understand we got you. >> there are over several petitions with one 100,000 signatures calling for maroon 5 to take a knee during the halftime performance. there's also one with 100,000 signatures asking maroon 5 to step out of the performance altogether. frontman adam levine says the world will see that maroon 5's

source at the "washington post" emily howell with us. emily, thank you so much for being with us. i know that this is something really no other first lady has done. i want to read you what melania trump's spokeswoman has said. she said, her reasoning is pretty simple. she won't stand for people printing lies about her. it's irresponsible and reckless and media outlets should be held accountable when they choose profit over truth. this is unprecedented for a first lady. in terms of melania trump, is she setting a precedent here for future first ladies? >> it's hard to know because she's not like other first ladies. maybe we're entering into first ladidom or spousedom, depending how things go in the future. she's just so different from other first ladies, in so many different ways.
and this litigiousness is unprecedented. no other first lady has sued media organizations and gone after the media like melania trump has. it's very much part and parcel of her husband's administration. this is just not something is that first ladies did. >> is there any indication that it's working, that there's less stories out there about her? >> well, it's interesting. she's had success with three settlements. two of them were with papers in the uk. liable law and defamation law makes it easier to win settlements there. she did have one settlement with a maryland blogger. she hasn't successfully gone after any u.s.-based media organizations. it's unclear whether she'll be successful if she tries. she might be successful in other eye was in that the lawsuits
have a way to point to the media at large and try to discredit it. they also might have a chilling effect on reporters, it's unclear whether it has, particularly here in the u.s. where the media laws are favored more strongly. but it does allow it to muddy the waters so say there's a lot of fake news about her. >> first lady did tweet about black history month. about a celebration of unity. the president tweeted as well. what role do you anticipate she's going to have in 2020 in terms of trying to pull some of those african-american voters? >> that's interesting. she played almost no role in the midterms. she really stayed away from the campaign trail there. of course, it will be different in 2020. this is her husband's campaign. it's interesting. i'm going to be very curious to see how she's deployed in the campaign trail. she's in some ways said to represent a softer side of her husband but she's proven not to really be that softer voice.
she's actually more aggressive on her own. she's more popular than her husband is so that will certainly help her on the trail. it will be interesting to see how they deploy her and how successful she can be connecting with his constituency. and parts of voters who are not in his case. can she reach out to them? it's unclear. >> emily heil, great to have you here. thanks. >> thanks so much. up next, your guide to the best super bowl commercials ahead of the big game. including this ad from pepsi. >> i'll take a coke. >> is pepsi okay? >> is pepsi okay? is pepsi okay? >> a puppy is okay? is a shooting star okay? is the laughter of a small child okay? ♪ [ doorbell rings ]
