tv   New Day With Alisyn Camerota and John Berman  CNN  July 17, 2019 3:00am-4:01am PDT

3:00 am
president president. >> can he go lower? >> i don't know. but me to needs to go we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. this is "new day." it is wednesday, july 17th, 6:00 here in new york. john is off this morning. erica hill joins us. >> great to be here. >> it was a wild night last night and promises to be so this morning as well. so there were some wild hours on capitol hill last night as the house voted to condemn president trump's racist attacks targeting four congress women of color. it is the first house rebuke of a president in more than a hundred years. four republicans and one independent joined dems to condemn the president. >> the vote itself was delayed after republicans rejected to nancy pelosi calling the president's tweets racist claiming she violated house decorum rules.
3:01 am
that led to a heated back and forth with throwing the gavel down and storming off. so where does this all go from here? lauren fox is live on capitol hill with our top story this morning. lauren, good morning. >> reporter: these tweets, these racist tweets from the president are still consuming capitol hill and republicans had a rare opportunity last night to rebuke the president on the record. instead mostly they voted along party lines. >> i know racism when i see it. i know racism when i feel it. >> reporter: house democrats strongly condemning president trump's racist tweets. passing a resolution rebuking him for telling four democratic congress women of color who were all american citizens to, quote, go back to where their came from. three of them born in the u.s. the vote coming down largely on party lines with only four republicans and one independent
3:02 am
supporting the measure. >> it's not the first time i've heard g back to your oun country, but it is the first time i've heard it coming from the white house. >> what's really happening here is the president and his supporters have been forced to endure months of allegations of racism. >> reporter: quickly turning into a partisan fight after nancy pelosi said this. >> every member of this institution democratic and republican should join us in condemning the president's racist tweets. to do anything less would be a shocking rejection of our values and a shameful abdication of our oath of office. >> reporter: republicans say pelosi broke house rules by directly disparaging the president stalling the vote for nearly two hours. >> i make a point of order, the words a point of problem. >> reporter: the debate frustrating emanuel cleaver. >> we want to just fight.
3:03 am
i abandon the chair. >> reporter: president trump praising republicans for standing unified. >> the president is not a racist. and i think the tone of all of this is not good for the country. >> were the president's tweets that said go back racist, yes or no? >> no. i believe this is about ideology. this is about socialism versus freedom. >> reporter: earlier the president tweeting, quote, i don't have a racist bone in my body. congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez firing back saying you're right, mr. president. you have a racist mind in our head and a racist heart in your chest. tensions also rising for white house officials facing questions about trump's racist comments. >> which countries were you referring? >> what's your ethnicity? >> why is that relevant? >> because i'm asking a
3:04 am
question. my ancestors are from ireland and italy. he said originally from. >> reporter: and house speaker nancy pelosi told reporters that she was going back onto the floor last night, that she still stood by her comments even though they were technically struck from the record. also this is really a clear illustration of where president trump wants to go in the 2020 election. painting these four democratic congress women as socialists. >> okay, lauren. thank you very much. joining us now to discuss all of this, we have toluse ol onippa. great to have you help us understand what went on. is this how nancy pelosi and democrats wanted it to go? it got kinds of crazy for a couple of hours there where
3:05 am
nancy pelosi herself ran afoul of this i think amazing house rule that doesn't allow anyone to say that the president used racist words. who knew that rule existed? and so it was a bit of a mess. and the outcome seems to be that president trump just is using these four congress women of color as a new foil and he likes to have a foil. is this what they were hoping for? >> you know, i think they walked into this knowing there was going to be some commotion on the floor. there was a private meeting with democrats yesterday morning where pelosi basically went back on some advice that her rules chairman was giving members which is be careful what you say on the floor. he was reminding them of the decorum rules. pelosi said i'm not going to worry about it. but she was serious. and i think she was trying to make a point. that she was going to call out these racist comments by the president, these racist tweets.
3:06 am
forget about the house rule. we have to call a spade a spade here. that's what she did. it created a lot of press, what she did, the back and forth. i think that was the point she actually wanted to make. and mane whooil, you had democrats who were saying this whole thing is absurd. republicans are talking about house rules right now and pelosi breaking house rules but they're not willing to stand up to the leader of the country when he makes racist comments. >> charlie dunn, i'm curious especially based on your experience there, did you agree that nancy pelosi did violate those house rules? >> maybe she did technically, but i guess i would say if you're losing on policy or on substance and in this case the republicans are trying to defend the indefensible and explain the unexplicable. the rules are clear you can't disparage or attack the character of the president or a
3:07 am
member of the congress on the floor. you're not allowed to do that. so technically she may have been in the wrong, but substantively, she was essentially just restating the president's word and calling him out for his behavior. and the president -- you know, the president in this case he's the arsonist and he's out there calling members of congress republican members encouraging the vote against the resolution. telling the firefighters how to do their job. he ought to just be laying low right now. he's the source of all the problems here. >> go ahead. >> let's look at the four, toluse, who voted with democr s democrats. here are the four democrats and the one independent. susan brooks, fred upton of michigan, brian fitzpatrick of michigan, and will hurd who also publicly spoke out. he is of texas. we've seen history is littered with the political careers of
3:08 am
people who have crossed paths with the president in the past two years. >> yes. the president was watching this vote very closely. it was clear this was a vote you could find yourself on the opposite side of the president. those members who voted against the president in this case are people from swing democrats. they have a lot of democrats and independents in their districts. so standing right next to the president is not necessarily in their best interests. so some of these candidates at least one of them i believe is retiring. so doesn't have to worry about whether or not president trump would take him on in a primary or anything like that. but this was a litmus test. this was a loyalty test within the republican party to say whether or not you stand with the president. even though some of his comments were seen as racist even by republican congress members. and it seemed like a large number of the republican caucus,
3:09 am
and it allowed the democrats to put all of these republicans on the record standing with racist comments and standing against their colleagues, minority colleagues in will hurd who openly called this out as racist. that was one of the things the democrats wanted out of this. the president got what he want out of this for starting this fight and also having a loyalty test. and for the most part besides these four or five members of congress, everybody else decided to stand with the president. >> what's interesting about this is it sort of started as a fight between democrats, right? and when we heard from the president, it changed the tune. it almost seemed to be united democrats. that may not be where we're at. >> that's right. because there's this enough interview that gayle king has just done with the squad, rachel, and it sounds like they have not necessarily buried the hatchet with nancy pelosi. so let's play a portion of this.
3:10 am
>> our teams are in communication, our chiefs are -- >> but shouldn't it be a face-to-fa face-to-face? >> she's the new member, not the speaker. she has every right to sit down with her at any time with any of us. she is speaker of the house. she can ask for a meeting to sit down with us for clarification. the fact of the knowledge is and i've done racial justice work in our country for a long time, acknowledge the fact we are women of color. so when you single us out, be aware of that and what you're doing. especially because some of us are getting death threats and being singled out because of our backgrounds and experiences and so forth. but i think -- >> alexandria, are you interested in having a conversation face-to-face with house speaker nancy pelosi? >> why wouldn't she sit down with her? >> absolutely. >> what do you make of that? they had this opportunity to just keep their sights trained on president trump and yet they have an aggressive tone, i think you could call it, towards nancy
3:11 am
pelosi. >> yeah. trump might have sort of changed this battle for a few minutes, but this war between the democrats, this is not over. it's sort of just been put on hold for now. and as you can see right there, going to potentially be escalating. ocasio-cortez and pelosi hadn't spoken since february when pelosi actually offered her a position on a climate panel and aoc said i don't want it basically because it doesn't have enough teeth for me. pelosi was really angry about that. ever since then, there's been a lot of snide comments about ocasio-cortez and the squad and, you know, i asked her that in the hallway just a few weeks ago. i guess it was even last week. i can't believe it was only last week. her answer was, you know, i don't know what to do. i don't know if i should approach her, but right now i don't want to. and clearly right there she's saying she's willing to have a conversation, but who's going to reach out? and unless somebody does, this cold war is going to continue. >> it is a rough wind. it is frigid in a very, very warm time in washington.
3:12 am
charlie dent, we'll give you the last word on this. >> it almost defies logic. here they are, these four women are complaining about nancy pelosi who was upset with them because they voted against the border funding bill. and then to turn around and suggest that pelosi was criticizing them because they were women of color was absurd. there was a policy disagreement. and when those -- when the squad and i forgot which one made the comment, they're basically race baiting suggesting nancy pelosi was attacking them because of their color. and it was a simple policy disagreement. those four members are not a very sympathetic bunch within the democratic caucus. some of them are trying to incite primaries against their fellow democratic colleagues and chief of staff i think of aoc comparing the moderate democrats, you know, to segregationists. i mean, come on. what donald trump has done, he's united democrats momentarily in a moment they're in the circular
3:13 am
firing squads here. >> also might be manner for heaven for president trump. every time they say something that he considers outrageous or against nancy pelosi he seems to run with it. thank you for all of the insights. we should let everyone know coming up on "new day," we will talk to two lawmakers at the center of the drama. yesterday congressman emmanuel cleaver, he dropped the gavel and stormed off during the house debate. and also representative james clyburn. >> up next, cnn sits down with kamala harris as the 2020 hopeful slams the president's racist tweets. >> can he get lower. >> i don't know. but he needs to go back where he came from and leave that office. >> more of that interview next. (vo) the hamsters, run hopelessly in their cage. content on their endless quest, to nowhere. but perhaps this year, a more exhilarating endeavor awaits.

presidential candidate senator kamala harris taking on president trump's racist tweets and trying to clean up her own position on health care. the california senator sat down with cnn's kiung law. she said a lot of interesting things in your interview. >> reporter: she does. senator kamala harris is the second black senator elected to that chamber. the first south asian elected to the chamber. she says that phrase, go back to
3:19 am
where you came from, has been directed at her. so it's there with the president's tweet that we began our interview. you are the daughter of immigran immigrants, a sitting member of congress, a woman of color. how do you view president trump's tweets? >> i think it's un-american. un-american. it is unbecoming of the president of the united states. i think it defiles the seat of the president of the united states. it is irresponsible, hateful, hurtful. and he has taken the presidency to a new low. >> reporter: you take this personally as a daughter of an immigrant. >> i take it personally as a member of the united states senate. >> reporter: if we could turn to what the four members of congress urged for people who are listening to not get distracted. how do you not get distracted?
3:20 am
how do you not fall into his trap where he controls the narrative with a tweet like this? >> i've said it many times. this president purposely distracts and attempts to distract by flame throwing. because the reality of it is is he's done nothing to help working families in america. he passed a tax bill benefitting the top 1% and the biggest corporations of our country. he has conducted trade policy by tweet in a way that farmers are looking at bankruptcy and auto workers are looking for the potential for their jobs to be gone by the end of the year. the american consumer is paying $1.4 billion more a month in everything from shampoo to washing machines because of his so-called trade policy which i call the trump trade tax. and he has not done anything to build up the infrastructure of our country. and all that comes with that in terms of improving and elevating the condition of working
3:21 am
families. and so what does he do? he wants to distract by starting a whole -- lighting fires around the issues of race and ethnicity. it's disgusting. >> reporter: is this a turn? there's so much rage about this. is this a turn for you? >> there is so much that is disgusting about this. i think it is a turn for this president. could it get any worse? apparently, yes. it just did. how low can he go? >> reporter: can he get lower? >> i don't know, but he needs to go back where he came from and leave that office. and so that's why i'm running. with the intention of making sure there will not be four more years. i don't think that we can survive having a president of the united states who uses whatever voice he has in a way that is about dividing and fueling hate in our country. the american people will not
3:22 am
tolerate that. i know that. i know who we really are as a country. the american people will not tolerate this kind of hate from their president. >> reporter: i want to turn to the issue of health care. at the beginning of the year in january, you talked about you're fine with getting rid of it all. and then you indicated that there was a place for private health insurance and then the debate where you raised your hand understanding that you say you misheard the question. so let's -- >> that's a lot you're building into a question that's not accurate. i would like to just get to the point, but there's a lot that you're building into the question that's inaccurate. >> reporter: the impression that people are left with is they're not quite sure. so let's clear it up. >> okay, good. >> reporter: from where you are, tell me your position on what medicare for all means under a president harris. >> sure. medicare for all means everyone will have access to health care and cost will not be a barrier.
3:23 am
as relation to private insurance, there still will be supplemental insurance. but yeah, transitioning to medicare for all at some point would reduce the requirement for insurance. because everyone will have access to health care. under medicare for all, my vision of medicare for all, people will have covered what they don't now in terms of vision care, dental care, hearing aidhear ing aids. hearing aids are extremely expensive and not covered right now. medicare for all means you recognize that right now in america 91% of our doctors are in medicare. so you're not going to have to lose your doctor. it is very unlikely. it means recognizing that over a period of many years, the insurance companies have been jacking up the cost of health care in terms of premiums, deductibles, and copays. so that right now someone who has insurance coverage will
3:24 am
still be out of pocket $5,000 because that's their deductible. which for most americans is unaffordable. >> reporter: the role of private insurance, are you limiting that to something like cosmetic insurance? what is the exact role? >> to cover what is not otherwise covered. >> reporter: that includes what? >> very little because almost anything will be covered. >> reporter: so how does this plan differ from what senator sanders is proposing? >> i think that they're very similar. i don't know that they're -- i mean, i don't think -- i'm supporting his bill, so to the extent he's talking about his bill, i don't know what else he's talking about. >> reporter: you said -- >> i mean, i'm not in support of middle class families paying more taxes for it. >> reporter: and that's what i was hoping to talk to you about that. you said you were not in favor of a middle class tax hike. >> correct. >> reporter: how do you propose to pay for your version of medicare for all if it resembles what senator sanders is pr posing? >> part of it is going to be
3:25 am
about wall street paying more. it's going to be about what we tax in terms of financial services. that's part of it. the other part is to ups understand this is about an investment that will reap a great return on the investment. we can't only look at this issue in terms of cost without thinking about benefit. the benefit to the american public will be that people will have access to health care that right now they cannot afford. and we are all paying a price for that. >> reporter: senator sanders says that that is impossible to achieve without a middle class tax hike. >> i'm not prepared to engage in a middle class tax hike. >> reporter: many studies, study after study shows it would cost approximately $30 trillion over a decade to pay for this. so taxing wall street will reap $30 trillion in order to cover this? >> what we're doing right now is unaffordable to so many american families. and the idea that we're going to
3:26 am
go down and this level of analysis that suggests that status quo is okay is completely unacceptable. >> reporter: so people who have private insurance would eventually have to give that up under your plan? >> they would eventually be covered under medicare for all and still see their doctor. and that's what they wanted. >> reporter: how long would this transition take? >> i think the transition is going to have to take -- i mean, the bill is four years. it would take more than that, to be honest. >> reporter: and all of this without a middle class tax hike? >> yes. >> reporter: $30 trillion over ten years. >> there are ways to pay for it also understanding the investment that we are going to be making in a way that's going to reap other benefits. >> reporter: the investment where? >> in american health. and what we are otherwise paying as a cost for people not having access to health care and the burdens that places on systems across the board when people don't have access to health care. >> reporter: and when you --
3:27 am
when people question that there is no formula for this, that you are going to find money in magical ways is not realistic thinking, how do you respond to that? >> status quo is not enough. so we have to be open to challenging status quo so everyone has access to health care and price is not the barrier. we have to agree that what's happening right now is not affordable to many, many working families. >> reporter: joe biden says that this is what you are suggesting, an elimination of obamacare spp that accurate? >> it's absolutely not. listen. i will put my record up against anybody as having been a fighter for the maintenance and the sustainability of obamacare. as attorney general, i'm sure on
3:28 am
the debate stage, i'm the only one who went to court to fight to keep in place all of the benefits of obamacare. but like president obama himself has said, he is the analogy of it like being a starter home. it was a profound public health policy and shift. it was incredible. the courage that he had with so many others to actually get it done and the wherewithal to get it done was profound. >> reporter: but obamacare isn't -- >> but now it's about taking it to the next step. >> reporter: so it is moving on from obamacare. >> and making improvements on it. and president obama himself said that there are improvements to be made. >> reporter: you heard the senator reference wall street, taxing wall street. what the campaign is pointing to as other revenue streams, it's
3:29 am
about a dozen of them. and what the senator is proposing is simply taking a middle class tax hike off the table as a way to create a revenue stream in order to pay for medicare for all. erica? >> stay with us. we want to talk to you more about that interview. plus there's a new poll. what the most important issue is to voters and what all of this could mean for kamala harris. that's next.

i can worry about it, or doe. something about it. garlique helps maintain healthy cholesterol naturally, and it's odor-free, and pharmacist recommended. garlique all right. so you just heard senator kamala harris attempt to clear up her own plan for america's health care system. kyung lah sat down with senator harris and she's back with us. also joining us is toluse. erica and i are still a tad confused about her plan.
3:34 am
you really pressed her to give specifics. why does she seem to be sort of tripped up when you ask her whether or not people are going to keep their own private insurance or not and when this transition could happen. >> because she is trying to explain it as a transition. and the way she sees that transition happening is, you know, you start to move very slowly. that this could take as you heard her say, more than four years. now, she's been caught a couple of times public ply from the cn town hall to the last debate, the first democratic debate where at least publicly and we weren't sure where she stood. but what she has said is she does favor keeping insurance some type of supplemental insurance but eventually moving everyone after those four years or so into some sort of single payer system that is the next step she believes in the
3:35 am
expansion of obamacare. >> what's fascinating, too, as we listen to this interview which is a fantastic interview. toluse, what she was talking about at least this is answer she gave. it's not going to be a middle tax cut. what's the answer there? her sell on this seemed to be that the cost of not doing anything is far greater than whatever the cost of it will be. and yet there wasn't a firm answer on where the money is ultimately going to come from. this is the number one issue for likely democratic voters in this new poll out of new hampshire. does she need to get a better answer on this? >> i will be interested to see how the debate stage lineup plays out tomorrow with when we hear who she will be on the stage with next week. we've seen joe biden take some shots at senator harris basically saying, you know, she has not been up front enough about how this will be paid for.
3:36 am
whether or not there will be a middle class tax cut or tax hike to pay for this type of health care transformation. obviously senator sanders has said, yes, we will have to raise taxes on people but we'll be replacing the money they're spending on people yums. so most people will be better off. senator harris seems to be saying this is a move we can make and count in the growth and extra money that we're going to save by not having paem going to the emergency room. that's a hard sell to tell voters we're going to find these trillions of dollars in saving by cutting some of the waste in the system. it's something she might be pressed on even further not only by the debate moderators but also her rivals who are trying to show she has a weakness on this issue. she's gone back and forth. she hasn't been as clear as possible in terms of talking about how this transition would take place, how she would pay for it, and whether or not people would keep their private
3:37 am
insurance. so this could be an area of weakness or an area of clarification for her on the debate stage. she seemed like she tried to move in that direction during this interview, but there are still a number of questions that are yet to be answered. >> kyung, it was also a little bit confusing about whether or not she wants to preserve obamacare. and again, you pressed her and you said joe biden says you want to get rid of obamacare. she said not at all. but what she's describing isn't obamacare. >> well, what she's pointing to is, remember, when we first started talking about the affordable care act, it was including a singer payer option. that did not get through congress. and so what she's saying is looking at the original intent of obamacare. and that what we have now as she described, it was a starter home. she wants to expand it. that's how she is interpreting
3:38 am
that this is still would be a larger and more inclusive obamacare for the american public. also takes a look at of course democratic candidates. and we can put up the results there. who has been of course toluse, a major focus for the president. you cover the white house. looking at this poll, what's your take on where it stands right now and what this could mean. so this is a very fluid race even though joe biden is sitting at the top. he is not a lock to win new hampshire or any of these states. because many are waiting to hear from various candidates. some are trying to introduce themselves to the american
3:39 am
people. and it's clear this race is going to shift in a number of ways. it has been shifting since that first debate in several days. to rise in that poll as well. >> one thing before we go, there's another that shows likely gop voters. the top issue for them in new hampshire, this is interesting, is immigration. far and away above health care, above even jobs and the economy, and so it's at 39%. okay? you can see why the president every day talks about immigration even over the economy. and back on the democratic side, health care is the number one. and so you can conclude that democrats would be wise to talk more about health care than they do about immigration. but they goat roped into the immigration conversation very often. kyung, toluse, thank you very much. up next, we want to remember a titan of the supreme court. what justice john paul stevens said about his legacy just weeks before his death.

supreme court justice in history john paul stevens has died. stevens was nominated by republican president gerald ford but ended up being a liberal voice on the bench. and our john berman recently interviewed retired justice stevens and asked how he wanted to be remembered. >> what do you think your legacy is on the court? >> well, i don't know. i'd really like more people to think i was right on the important decisions than right now. >> you want more people to come around to your views eventually? >> yeah. >> i think that's what we all want in life. do you think about that? do you think about the fact that in some ways your dissents may have had more bakt or you may have had more impact from your dissents. >> that's true but i wish it weren't. >> the district of columbia versus heller which was the gun control case in washington, d.c. you say heller is clearly the
3:45 am
most incorrect decision during your time on the bench. it represents the worst self-inflicted wound in the court's history. >> i really think that's true. as a matter of history and as a matter of what the court should do with the settled law, it was just a really atrocious decision. >> so bush versus gore. which is a decision everyone remembers. you wrote again in dissent, although we may never know with complete certainty the identity of the winner of this year's presidential election, the identity of the loser is perfectly clear. it is the nation's confidence in the judge as an impartial guardian of the rule of law. >> yes. i really think that's true. and i think it damaged the court ever since then. i think the court has been adversely affected by that case. >> the third case that you say you were most disappointed by was citizens united. in your case, it was that moment

3:47 am
justice john paul stevens' perfect world, what's the role of judiciary? >> to decide cases best they can, to follow the rule of law. >> and do you think that's happening today at the supreme court? >> well, i think they're trying to do it, but their views are a little less faithful to precedent than i think they should be. >> you were a criptographer during world war ii. what do you think that implemented on america? >> of course i always considered my service during the navy an important part of my life. and it must have had an influence on me because you go through a war and you form some pretty important views. >> obviously when you were sitting on the supreme court, you were making history. but for all the years before
