tv New Day Weekend With Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul CNN July 28, 2019 4:00am-5:00am PDT
this is "new day weekend" with victor black wewell and christi paul. if you thought president trump would exercise restraint after receiving backlash against his twitter tirade against baltimore. that's not happening. overnight the president fortified his attack against baltimore and elijah cummings. so fad elijah cummings has done so little for baltimore. cummings has done but milk baltimore dry. >> thousands of people have weighed in on the president's remarks. in has struck a chord with them and many have come to the defense of baltimore and
cummings. mayor young had this to say. >> we're not going to ignore anyone degrading baltimore city and it's elected leadership. no one. i won't consider it fueling the fire. i look at it as defending baltimore city, the city where i live. >> cnn's sarah westwood with the very latest. good morning to you. what is the president saying about this this morning? >> reporter: good morning, christi and vick stotor. into last night the president doubling down on cummings and baltimore, suburban, rural, affluent areas in cummings' district. nonetheless, president trump going after baltimore for its rankings in unspecified categories and claiming, quote, baltimore is very dangerous. last night writing, elijah
cummings spends his time hurting those through his oversight. he does so through his poorly run district. he shared a clip purported to be of a delipidated backyard in baltimore. cummings has launched and made progress on investigations on the president's finance and private communications with senior aide. the oversight committee offered subpoenas of tweets and whatsup communications. last week cummings grilled dhs head macle mcleanen. so the president and cummings have a complicated past.
this is not the first time they've sparred. ironically in 2017, the two met. according to cummings' recollect election, he informed president that his neighborhood about black neighborhoods is often offensive and he told cummings he had never been told that before. >> thank you. >> joining me to discuss, cnn political analyst april ryan and paul begala. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> april, let me start with you, for obvious reasons. you are from baltimore. you know -- >> yes, i am. >> you know the district. you know it's west baltimore and more than west baltimore. when you saw the president's tweets, what did you think, what did you feel? >> okay. victor, first of all, thank you for being you and letting your humanity show yesterday. i cried with you. i am a product, a proud product
of baltimore city. born inside a hospital just blocks from where the preakness is run. >> i was born there, too. >> yes, more connection, victor. i lived in northeast baltimore and northwest baltimore growing up. attended school at morgan state university at baltimore university. i'm still in the baltimore area. i as a child used to frequent the area where that was -- that standoff with police and community on north and penn after the freddie gray death. you know, i know baltimore from the top to the bottom, from the upper income to the low income. baltimore is a community. it's a community of communities. it's a city that, yes, is made up of survivors. it's pockets of poverty, pockets of wealth, but people, what i don't understand like detroit, baltimore is like detroit,
flint, we need help. after beth steele left there was a massive blight in baltimore. detroit is on the upswing but there's a problem, too, because these auto manufacturers are having problems with the president's tariffs. this is a city that's struggling. baltimore is a city that's struggling. if you are a leader, remember this, power means service. mr. president, where is your service to a city that is looking for help? it's not just about cummings or the mayor of baltimore. it's about you as a leader who says, i want to look down and pick you up, instead of laughing and talking about being infested. how dare he? we are people. >> that's where i want to pick up, paul. sound bite two, control room. this is what the president said, and he mentioned the city of baltimore when he accepted the nomination to be president. this is 2016. let's watch and listen. >> when i am president, i will work to ensure that all of our
kids are treated equally and protected equally. every action i tashgske, i will myself, does this make better for young americans in baltimore, in chicago, in detroit, in ferguson, who have really in every way, folks, the same right to live out their dreams as any other child in america? >> paul, what was on striking about the tweet, one of the things, is that he -- it seemed not to find common cause in helping the people of baltimore. those are your people. that's your responsibility. as if maryland is not one of the united states of america and baltimore is not a city in that state. >> well, victor, i want to echo what april said about your
commentary yesterday. it was badly needed. this is a president that has a strategy. the strategy is divide and conquer. this is an old strategy -- i grew up in a small, rural town in texas. we've seen this all our lives. democr demagogues come in and divide so they can rule from above. this is the message at the debate democrats should take to the country. we know what the president said is racist. that's news nowhere. i hope they say it. it's true. what's more interesting is to talk to those folks. i spend time in rural america. i was on a farm yesterday. rural america has challenges, too, mr. president. we're dying from opioid abuse, marriages are falling apart, children being born out of wedlock. he does not attack and denigrate rural america.
for him to divide us this way is hateful and hurtful but strategic. he's trying to divide those folks so they don't see they have common interests in trying to build a better life together. >> let me splay a sound bite. ten days ago when we were having a conversation about the president's racism, it was after going after four minority congresswomen and he justified it by saying, listen the to the way they speak about our country. here is what the president said earlier this month. >> when people are speaking so badly, when they call our country garbage, think of that, that's worse than deplorable. when they call our country garbage, i don't care about politics. i don't care if it's good or bad about politics. many people say it's good. don't know if it's good or bad. i can tell you this, you can't talk that way about our country. not when i'm the president. >> you can't talk that way about our country, not when i'm the
president. first, he's misconstruing what congresswoman ocasio-cortez said. first, you can't talk that way and now it's, yeah, but look at baltimore. are people just going to follow along? where is the rest of his party? april? >> the hypocrisy is right there in our face. you can't talk about our country but baltimore, baltimore, baltimore is part of this country. let's go to francis scott key, the star spangled banner, o, say can you see. i'm baltimore. we're baltimore. all of us. because it's baltimore today. it will be another city tomorrow. we are baltimore baltimore, #wearebaltimore. for him to use the word -- victor, bear with me for a minute -- to talk about invested, infested. mr. president, where's your urban renewell plan for baltimore and cities like
baltimore? don't talk about it, be about it. this is now the reporter hat's off because this is ridiculous. on top of that, it's infested. you're living in a house infe infested with mice. you, mr. president, are living with a house infested with mice, stink bugs and everything else. you talk about where you liv, what's running across your covers at night. if you want to get into the history of the word infested, let's talk about the word infested when it was used against our jewish brothers and sisters during the holocaust. there are awful references that this president is making. and it needs to stop. this president said last week or two weeks ago when this -- all of this squad issue came up that he enjoys this. he's enjoying it at other people's peril. it's not right. if he's the moral leader and the leader of this nation, it's not right. >> paul, let me finish up with you here.
there's this op-ed that's been co-signed by 149 african-american staffers in the obama administration condemning what they've seen from the president, those tweets. i mean, this came out before we heard about -- saw the tweets from baltimore, saw those four minority congresswomen. congresswoman of california said it's time for president obama, mrs. obama to come out and start delivering some speeches. should they? what about president bush. this should not be left as a partisan issue. if we're calling for one president to come out, should not president bush come out? should there be some rebuttal from that level, from the former holders of that office? paul, your take. >> i do -- president obama and mrs. obama, they carried so much freight for so long, they have a right to try to stand back. president obama did retweet a column highly critical of president obama. i do think you make an interesting point about president bush but also about
the current republican leaders. they have to call out their own. if president obama stands up, he opposed trump in a campaign. different parties. paul ryan, former speaker, he said it plainly when donald trump said judge curial in san diego couldn't ruin a case because being from indiana he had mexican heritage and couldn't rule. paul ryan said that is the very definition -- >> how long did that last? once the president started his administration and they tried to get taxes passed, a lot of that went to the side. then we heard from paul ryan again after he's out of office. where was all of that when he could have affected some change? >> that's right. they have complicit. the republican party -- i'm ashamed to say this is democrat. my party was party of racism. the republican party was founded on equality, founded in part by abraham lincoln. for that party today to be
silent when a president is, i believe, intentionally trying to divide this country -- >> he is. >> -- along racial lines, that is a form of complicity, i think. >> paul begala, april ryan. stay with us. we want to talk about the priority, it seems, from the president if you read what he's writing online. of course, you're there in detroit for the debate coming up on tuesday and wednesday. we'll talk about that in a moment. stay with us. we have breaking news out of hong kong. thousands of protesters are there and our own anna coren was just hit with tear gas. we'll go live to her after the break. >> tech: at safelite autoglass, we really pride ourselves on making it easy for you to get your windshield fixed. >> teacher: let's turn in your science papers. >> tech vo: this teacher always puts her students first. >> student: i did mine on volcanoes. >> teacher: you did?! oh, i can't wait to read it. >> tech vo: so when she had auto glass damage... she chose safelite. with safelite, she could see exactly when we'd be there.
>> teacher: you must be pascal. >> tech: yes ma'am. >> tech vo: saving her time...

anna, first of all, you and the crew okay? >> reporter: yeah, thank you, christi, we're okay. but it was something we were not anticipating. we've been here covering these protests every weekend for the last eight consecutive weekends. police have fired tear gas, but not at that strength. this was something quite toxic. it hit the ground. admittedly we were in a residential area. and then it was just burning up. if you don't have your mask on super tight, it gets in. my producer, myself, we were just choking up. it was extremely difficult to breathe. we just had to get out of there, as did everybody else. we were down the hill. you can still see riot police down there. they have dispersed the crowd. now they are moving in that direction. you can hear them hitting their shields. they are moving these crowds much quicker and much more effectively than they have over the past eight weeks. this is a completely different
operation to what we have seen. in the past, police have allowed this to drag on for hours, but tonight it is happening at a much faster pace. where we are is sheung wan, very close to the beijing liasion office. last sunday protesters graffitied it, defaced the national emblem and beijing was quick to respond. they said that that was challenging. the one country, two systems policy. that is why they are guarding that area and they don't want protesters getting anywhere near it. those protesters are now being moved back in sheung wan. this is a very residential area. we know there's another protest happening 15 minutes away in causeway bay. there are thousands of people there. not a heavy police presence at
this stage. it would seem after last night where we were at yuen long, a border city very close to the chinese mainland, those violent clashes with police where they use tear gas, rubber bullets and pepper spray, our crew were with the protesters when they attacked. it seems the police are now upping the ante. whether they're going to tolerate these unlawful assemblies for much longer. you get the sense, christi and victor, that police are starting to clamp down. >> anna coren, be safe out there. thank you so much for your fantastic reporting of this last several weeks. coming up, what to expect in next week's debates. we'll talk about it. were born to ove the wayy in new pampers cruisers 360 fit with its ultra stretchy waistband.. and adaptive 360 fit

23 minutes past the hour. thank you for being with us. senator cory booker promised to run a positive campaign. we've seen him force joe biden to defend his record. the problem is booker's daily ledge centering in the polls, there's a south carolina poll out, showing biden on top by 39%. booker missing the top five polling around 5%. april ryan with us and cnn political commentator paul
begala, counselor to president bill clinton. thank you for sticking around with us. we appreciate it. not just that poll, april, but monmouth poll of likely wlak democratic voters in south carolina. we see joe biden with 51%. kamala harris is just with just 12% and booker showing 2% there. how does booker come into this particular debate for cnn and have a moment that seems to be organic with former vice president biden or something that might be perceived as contrived? >> i was with cory booker and he knows this debate is make or break for him. if he doesn't do well and show up or show out, as they say in the black church on sunday, if he doesn't do that, he may not
make the next debate. he's at the moment where he has to come out fighting. he's going to. we're going to see someone that's going to be a little more forceful. i talked to cory booker about this, but i also talked to former vice president joe biden who is learning how to give the clap back, if you will. he's ready. and the issue -- he's done his opposition research. all of the candidates have done their opposition research, especially the ones who need to make a showing at this debate like cory booker. it's going -- i tell people, get your popcorn ready because it's going to be fireworks in politics style, okay? but cory booker has to show up and show out. >> well, they all do, obviously, to some degree. and, paul, you know, biden after the first debate, his defense was, listen, obama vetted me. how compelling is that with voters, how much weight does it carry? >> i think it's pretty compelling for a lot of democrats.
but it can't be the end of his answer. it has to be the beginning. and i think joe's problem is if i were -- you know those great videos of him driving his corvette, he needs to take that rearview mirror and chuck it out the back. it's great. it's great he served under p president obama. the rest shouldn't be looking backwards and defending this bill or that voter or some friendship with a segregation that has been dead so long. we were talking about cory a minute ago. it's interesting what he was telling april. senator booker's challenge is, he's not an attacker by his nature. kamala harris is aid prosecutor and she went in for the kill and she was brilliant doing it. that's her game. senator booker is much more of a unifier. he was senator and tried to unify. the one time you look backwards
you talk about barack obama because he served him with honor. mr. vice president, you have to talk about your plans for the future. that's your game. >> the testimony from special counsel mueller this week, a lot of people say it didn't do a lot of favors to strengthen it is impeachment argument. when it comes to impeachment, do every one of these candidates needs a definitive answer to where they stand in regards to impeachment on tuesday and wednesday? >> yes, but they have to give an answer as to why. the vast majority of america did not read the mueller report for whatever reason. to include the republicans who are including the. the. they already said in their minds, we're not going to deal with this. we're going to support the president. they have to explain the fact it's not about collusion. it's about ten episodes of obstruction of justice and the
president lied. they have to make the case. even as more people on capitol hill, more democrats are talking about, yes, we have to impeach, they have to convince people. there's still a large swath of america that feels donald trump should not be impeached. they have to make the case as to why. the case is there. people haven't read. they have to reteach, relitigate in the seconds they're on stage. >> appreciate you both so much. thank you. >> thanks, christi. the lineups are set for the cnn democratic presidential debate. two big nights, ten candidates each night. the first round tuesday at 8:00 p.m. make sure you tune in for round two on wednesday as well. the live action gets under way 8:00 p.m. live from detroit only on cnn. reporting is that president trump thinks this attack on baltimore works for him politically. he's showing no restraint, not holding back. how do the people who live there
feel? we'll talk with baltimore city council member brandon scott live next. wrinkles just won't. neutrogena® rapid wrinkle repair's derm-proven retinol works so fast, it takes only one week to reveal younger looking skin. making wrinkles look so last week. rapid wrinkle repair® pair with new retinol oil for 2x the wrinkle fighting power. neutrogena®

class medical institutions and research and tech scene. baltimore has a lot to offer. we can never allow nasty and hurtful rhetoric to go unchecked by the president of the united states of america. >> that was the mayor of baltimore, jack young. joining me now to discuss all of this is baltimore city council president brandon scott. thank you so much for being with us this morning. >> thank you for having me this morning. >> first, when you read the president's tweets, what did you think? what did you feel? >> well, i think there's no surprise, right? i thought immediately that, of course, these things are not true. but this is not something surprising coming from this president. beating down an american city only for personal and political gain is something that should be beneath the office of president but we clearly can see it is not beneath this president because he's continuously done that throughout his term. nothing shocking and surprising in the tweets from this president. >> what do you make of the reporting from our cnn analyst
in "the washington post" that his aides see that after he tweeted about the four minority congresswomen four weeks ago that this is beneficial for him, that attacking minority congress members and in this way helps with trying to win over white working class in 2020? >> we know this president is continuously trying to widen his divides in america. we know he has a base of people who think that brown people, that women and people who are not straight, white men don't belong in this country. for him to beat down on an african-american congressman who represents a great african-american majority city is something that many in his base are incited by. you can see that just in the social media followings. it's unfortunate that the president of the united states, who was supposed to be the leader of the free world, can stoop to such lows. what we have to do, the rest of us, is be actual americans and work together, understand that he is the president and he,
above any other person on the planet, could help cities like baltimore with the issues instead of just tweeting. how about some action as opposed to words that are just empty and hollow and only self-serving. >> you are this morning, and i read your statement online, offering a full-throated condemnation of what we saw from the president. this is what a spokesman for the governor of maryland, republican larry hogan, told the baltimore sun. baltimore city is truly the very heart of our state and more attacks between politicians aren't going to get us anywhere. that's a third-party statement, not directly from the governor. it is not a condemnation of the depiction of the city of baltimore and it frames it as bickering between politicians. are you satisfied with that from the governor? >> well, listen, the governor and i disagree on a lot. as i said yesterday, this to me is not about donald trump. we can't allow this to be about donald trump.
he's the president of this country. instead of baltimore, he's beating down an american city, which is something unamerican and unfitting of the president of the united states. >> would you expected or wanted more from the republican governor? >> well, i think the governor had been better if he would have just condemned everything donald trump said and stood up but he did it in his own way. i'm not going to bicker back and forth. we all know the president is wrong. we all know baltimore is a great american city and we all know we need help for the changing, including help from the federal government that donald trump is in control of. >> let's talk about these challenges. we talked this morning that there are problems in most if not every major american city, but after the death of freddie gray, i took our viewers to north avenue. i took them to walbrook junction, i took them where i grew up. there are vacants along baltimore -- along north avenue.
for as long as i remember, there have been plenty of vacant homes, the row homes on that street. what is, for the people that want change, is the city doing to improve conditions in some of the neighborhoods? >> as you know, baltimore is a place -- basically the birthplace of realigning the legislation. what we have to understand, many houses that were vacant when you were here in 2015 have been vacant since the riots in 1968. we have to understand when you talk about a city like baltimore, systematic and institutional racism plays a very deep part in how we got to this point. that's why last year i was proud to push through the city council equity legislation that will now moving forward face our city to operate in a different way so we can also systematically go back and undo those things. we have a program where we work each and every day and take i vacant homes, knock them down,
put people back in them. we've been great in the council about putting $20 million money into our affordable housing trust fund. that's just the beginning. it's going to take baltimore a long time to get back to our best form. baltimore was worse when i was born. this is why i got into public service. i grew up in park heights, a neighborhood people forget about until the preakness. i got into public service to make our city the best city it can be. and i will not let anyone, including the president of the united states, beat us down when they have no skin in the game and do not want to help us. >> all right. i've just been told that the president has tweeted again about congressman cummings. he thinks this works for him because he thinks, according to the reporting from "the washington post," his aides say that this helps with the white working class. let me read what the president tweeted. i'm reading it for the first time. someone please explain to nancy pelosi who was recently called racist by those in her own party
there's nothing by bringing up the very obvious fact that congressman cummings has done a very poor job for his district and the city of baltimore. the facts speak far louder than words. democrats always play the race card when, in fact, they have done so little for our nation, great african-american people now lowest unemployment in u.s. history and only getting better. elijah cummings has failed badly. any response from you to what you're reading from the president or hearing from the president? >> much of the same from the president. again, this is all talk and chatter. i'm about solutions. if the president wants to help baltimore and american cities, how about he deliver on the infrastructure package he's been talking about since he ran for office? how about he invest in affordable housing for americans across cities, including baltimore, of which his h.u.d. director should know what we need because he lived here for so long instead of trying to
eliminate h.u.d. we are willing to work with him, despite all his missteps and uninformed opinions, we're willing to work with him. but we'll move on without him if he doesn't step up to the mra it's. our solution is not about talk. >> baltimore city council member brandon scott. thank you for being with us. we'll be right back. four lines, for $40/lir it's all included for the whole family. like unlimited with netflix on us. and now with each new line, get one of our latest smartphones included. $40/line for four lines and smartphones are included for the whole family. this is not just a headache. this is not just a fever. this is not just the flu. it's meningitis b... and you're not there to help. while meningitis b is uncommon... once symptoms appear, they can progress quickly and can be fatal... sometimes within 24 hours. before you send your teen to college... make sure you help protect them. talk to your teen's doctor... about meningitis b vaccination.
we now know juul spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to fund a youth training. they were grilled on this vaping epidemic. caleb mintz testimony. she's along with meredith brookman, co-founder parents against vaping. thank you for being with us. caleb, i want to ask you, how expansive is the vaping problem and how did what you saw the
program that was given by the juul representative affect what was happening at your school and the students? >> so, i would say that the juul problem, you can go to any social group in any school and at least one kid will be juuling. i don't think it's specific to a group. a lot of kids at my school were previously a little uncertain -- unsure about the health effects of vaping but after the presentation we received, i think a lot of kids were -- now believe they could juul without consequences. >> meredith, i want to listen with you to what a company executive had to say about their intention for these programs that they took to schools. >> we have never marketed to kids. all of these educational efforts were intended to keep youths from using the product. >> have you ever heard of a
company spending thousands and thousands of dollars to keep -- >> millions. >> -- people from using their product? does that -- does that answer fly with you? that's my question. >> those are lies. and the company knows it. the problem for juul is they've gotten caught. they've been caught out and they've been slammed in congress for targeting our kids. i mean, i -- we testified at the first day of these oversight subcommittee hearings this past week. and there were other experts who testified specifically about the marketing. and the juul executive, the juul co-founders literally studying the enormous archive of early cigarette advertising. remember, juul is a company that is more than 30% owned by altria, the parent company of philip morris, so is literally
big tobacco 2.0. all the things they've been doing, preying on kids. another woman testified they had gone onto tribal land offering free products to tribal leaders. preying on vulnerable populations that is straight out of big tobacco's playbook. but juul's targeting of kids -- another thing that came out is they had actually funded a summer camp for kids from third grade to 12th grade. so, the flavors that juul put out there, that are so popular, that they claim they've taken out of retail stores, yet i bought mamgo pods in two separate stores in a one-block radius. can you do that all over the country. is for kids. >> caleb and meredith, i'm sorry, we're out of time. thank you for being with us. >> thank you for talking to us. >> thank you so much. today's mission ahead,ers that a new cancer vaccine for
dogs. if it works, humans could be next. let's go. this way. we're going right in here. >> good boy. >> frazier is here to finish off enrollment for a new trial promise, the vaccine for canine cancer. the vaccine is designed to potentially delay or prevent a variety of different kinds of cancers simultaneously. dog and human cancers look very similar at the molecular level. if it's successful in dogs, we hope that will provide encouraging evidence to pursue the same approach in people. >> yeah, nice work. >> we've been working on this for 12 years. we made it by screening 800 dogs for the eight major cancers and then we looked to see which components were in common across those eight cancers. we took 31 of those and that's what we made the vaccine for. the hope is that when a tumor
arises, you'll have one or more of those components we vaccinated against. as soon as the "t" cells see that they'll react and kill the tumor. most in the cancer community will say this is impossible because every tumor is personal. they may be right. our rationale is that if there's a possibility it might work and the impact would be so big, it's worth taking that chance. >> today he's going to get his first vaccine. >> right. our dogs are our best friends and they love us unconditionally. i jumped at the opportunity to help people. it's awesome our dogs could be the answer to this. hey! i'm bill slowsky jr.,
