entertainer but she's speaking to young people about the important issues that are on their minds. i applaud that very much. >> so much of what she does goes viral. smart move by bernie sanders. pete buttigieg was asked by cnn's chris cuomo about how he'll convey he has the nerve to take on president trump. listen to this. >> i'm not scared of this president. i mean, this is a guy who is working on season 7 of "celebrity apprentice" when i was driving armored vehicles outside the wire in afghanistan. i'm not afraid to take him on. >> sharp attack from the mayor of south bend. two big nights of democratic presidential debates. ten candidates each night starting at 8:00 p.m. tonight, live from detroit here only on cnn. one of the biggest data breaches ever. another one, folks. a hacker gained access to more than 100 million capital one customer accounts and credit card applications. paige thompson is accused of breaking in and gaining access to kansas numbers, 1 million

incide incident. we're learning more about the three people who died in sunday's shooting rampage. trevor erby was a 2017 college graduate in central new york. the 25-year-old moved to california to be with his fiance. another victim, salazar, a 13-year-old from san jose. the youngest victim, 6-year-old steven romero, was playing in the bounce house with his mother and grandmother when all three of them were shot. his father, alberto, said he got a panicked call from his wife and raced to the hospital. >> i couldn't believe what was happening. i thought what she was saying was a lie, maybe i was dreaming. they told me he was in critical condition, that they were working on him. five minutes later, they told me that he was dead. >> romero's life and mother-in-law, fortunately, both survived their injuries. >> police say the 19-year-old gunman who opened fire at the
garlic festival created an instagram account days before the shooting and posted messages before the attack. one quoted a book from the late 1800s that says, white men must rule over those of color. our josh campbell has the latest on this information from gilroy, california. >> reporter: christine and boris, another incident of mass violence in the united states. this one in gilroy, california. we're told by authorities on sunday afternoon, a 19-year-old local resident made his way to the grounds behind me, the site of an annual festival four decades old. officers tell us using a tool, the suspect cut through the fence, bypassing security protocols in place. once inside, he opened fire. he was quickly engaged by law enforcement officers within the span of one minute. he was killed, but not before taking life of his own, to include two children. now, this remains an ongoing investigation. there are many threats here, to include the weaponry. we're told by officials this was an ak-47 style rifle, which
we've seen in a number of incidents in the united states involving the mass loss of life. we're told the weapon was purchased legally in nearby nevada and then brought here to california. one other threat officers are looking at is whether this person had any assistance. there were witness accounts that perhaps there was an accomplice. that is something that officers continue to run down as we speak. finally, we're hearing from the fbi that they are surging resources from around the country to this location to assist with this informativesti. specifically, they're bringing in specialists to assist those who may have been impacted as well as forensic examiners. a large plot of territory they have to comb over to find spent rounds, look for evidence to track the shooter and his movements on the day of the atta attack. multi-investigation continues even as the citizens of this community continue to grieve on the tragedy that struck them here sunday afternoon. >> thanks for that, josh. u.s. weapons will continue to flow to saudi arabia and the
united arab emirates. the senate failed to override president trump's veto of resolutions, banning sales to the saudis and u sarae. it passed congress with unanimous support. the white house needed to deter what it called iran's malign influence in the middle east. in addition to targeting the baltimore congressman elijah cummings and his district, the president is also calling al sharpton and bernie sanders racists. republican congressman mark meadows was accused of being racist earlier, and cummings came to his defense. this time, meadows was cautious with his words. more from pamela brown. >> reporter: president trump is expanding his attacks against baltimore congressman cummings
to include al sharpton and even bernie sanders. president trump saying the district is rat infested and no place any human would want to live. cummings saying he goes to his district in baltimore every day and fights for his constituents. cummings recently subpoenaed frump trump's family and come paplain about his handling of the border crisis. the put went after al sharpton saying, next, reverend al will complain and protest. he is just a con man at work. sharpton was quick to fire back, if he was a con man, he'd be nominating him for his cabinet. amid the criticism of the president's attacks on cummings that they were racist, president trump used bernie sanders' description of baltimore to defend himself. tweeting, crazy bernie sanders e equated the city of baltimore with a third-world country. based on that statement, bernie must be labeled a statement.
this is the second time in recent weeks the president used the word "infested" in connection with a person of color. the president said four minority congresswomen should go back to the crime-invested countries they came from. the cabinet secretary said the word has nothing to do with lat tweets are putting people in a tough spot. meadows, who was close with president trump and cummings, said he doesn't believe either man is a racist. back to you. >> thanks for that, pamela. president trump signing into law a bill for the permanent extension of the 9/11 victims compensation fund. the measure was passed by the house and senate. the president was joined by first responders and surviving family members. while he was addressing the assembled heros, he mentioned his own role in the 9/11 response effort. listen. >> i was down there also.
i'm not considering myself a first responder, but i was down there. i spent a lot of time down there with you. >> the comments were reminiscent of previous no evidence claims the president had made concerning 9/11. that includes stating during the 2016 campaign that he helped a little to clear the rubble. he claimed after the attacks he had people working for him to clear the rubble, that he saw muslims celebrating on rooftops. quite a list of dubious claims made by the president about september 11th. ten minutes past the hour. a leaked photo has led to a new investigation involving two american teens arrested in italy, accused of murdering a police officer. a live report from rome next. >> announcer: "early start" brought to you by pfizer. it's tough to quit smoking cold turkey. so chantix can help you quit slow turkey. along with support,

and racism into the campaign as never before. note, biden has 53% among black democrats, more than twice the share of all other candidates combined. when asked who has the best policy ideas, they picked senator elizabeth warren over biden by five points. >> messaging about having a plan for everything clearly paying off. tonight's lineup includes three of the front runners, senators warren, senator bernie sanders, and the mayor of south bend, indiana, pete buttigieg. yesterday, warren declined an opportunity to criticize her colleague, bernie sanders, ahead of the debate. listen. >> bernie and i have been friends forever. we all have a chance to talk about our vision for america, to talk about our plans for america, to talk about how we see building a future in this country. and that's what i'm going to do. i'm going to talk about my plans to make this america work not just for a thin slice at the top but make it work for everyone. >> we'll see if the friendly tone sticks tonight. sanders, meantime, had a bit of
unorthodox debate prep. he spent the day before the event teaming up with rap artist cardi b to shoot a campaign video. he talked exclusively with cnn about it afterward. >> what cardi b does, not only is she an enormously popular entertainer, what she is doing is speaking to young people about the important issues that are on their minds, and i applause that very much. >> meantime, mayor pete with a sharp attack against president trump. he spoke to chris cuomo last night and believes he has the nerve to take on president trump. listen. >> i'm in the scared of this president. i mean, this is a guy who was working on season 7 of "celebrity apprentice" when i was driving armored vehicles outside the wire in afghanistan. i'm not afraid to take him on. >> a different kind of toughness from mayor pete. >> let's bring in cnn politics digital director. you have a great piece, so we'll
tweet it out so make sure everyone reads it. who has to stand out tonight? you say there could be some desperate measures here. you have ten tonight, ten tomorrow. everyone thinks they have to break through. >> yeah, this is kind of the last opportunity for this massive field, people at the periphery, to make a mark before democrats call their herd next month with the next debate. so this is their opportunity sort of at the fringes of the debate. in the middle, i think that, you know, between sanders and war n warren, everybody is saying they won't attack each other, but they need to find a way to distinguish themselves. right now, they're sort of splitting that progressive vote. if anybody is going to take on joe biden or whoever ultimately takes up the sort of center lane hasn't mantle, they have to figure out who it is going to be. >> talking about distinguishing themselves, we've seen different
approaches to this. senator bernie sanders talking about medicare for all, against senator harris' what he called medicare for all light. listen to what the senator said about her plan. >> i like kamela. she's a friend of mine. but it is not medicare for all. it is medicare for all people as soon as possible. we think four years is as long as it should be, not ten years. that's one of the reasons i disagree with senator harris. >> so there is a question right now within the democratic party about pragmatism versus trying to hit the home run and get everything you want on health care. there is another element to this, and that's president trump, beating president trump. >> yeah. >> which of these approaches do you think we'll see more of tonight? which is ultimately more successful? having a candidate who goes out and outlines their plans or having somebody who goes out and will challenge this president? >> i have to tell yeah, i think
everybody after that completely disastrous first debate performance by joe biden has been a little surprised to see him rebound in polling in the way he has. i think that suggests that electability is going to continue to be the top question for a lot of democrats. on the other hand, you know, a hot of progressives see this as their opportunity to kind of get some big ideas into the political conversation. on the debate stage tonight with, you know, warren and sanders kind of squaring off, they'll also have a bunch more moderate people around them, you know. beto o'rourke, who has cratered but, you know, could have a moment here. mayor pete buttigieg, you know, and some others. we'll sort of see a good contrast between the middle lanes and progressivism tonight. >> it's interesting as the president has injected race into the debate so much for the 2020 race, when you look at the quinnipiac polling, biden has 53% among black democratic
voters. how important is name recknism a and electability? the conversation gets uglier. >> name recognition is the single top thing. getting name recognition is the top thing. biden still has it. after the first debate, a lot of people are still meeting these candidates. when he faces off with cory booker on one side and kamala harris on the other, we could see more about race. interesting to see if that means some of the support, particularly under black democrats, falls away. i don't think we should overlook the electability issue for minority voters. may be more so than for the democratic party as a whole. they might want trump gone more than anyone as opposed to voting for somebody, you know, who
shares atry put rtributes with >> digging in on president trump and race, you had a great piece which christine mentioned we'll tweet out so folks can read. it is how you believe president trump is using race and stoking racial animus as a strategy for 2020. we can look at the tweets he sent yesterday about representative elijah cummings and about al sharpton and even bernie sanders, calling them all racists. i do have to ask though, because the perspective i've gotten from folks in the white house, in speaking to them, is that the media is projecting a lot of sophistication to president trump's tweets that maybe isn't there. >> strategy you mean. like the actual strategy. >> they don't think he's thought through the attacks and he is simply watching fox news and sort of living us his instinctual response. do you get that sense, that this is impulsive, or this is sort of 3d chess, as sometimes suggested? >> i don't think there is a checklist that he says, okay, today, let's g afteo after elij
cummings in baltimore and let's go after the progressive women lawmakers tomorrow, check. i don't think there is strategy to that level, but certainly, you see in his tweets, a desire to go against people who don't look like him and who look like a lot of democrats, and to vilify places and to use language about places that stokes up his base. i don't think it is sophisticated in that he is saying, okay, here's what i'm going to do, this, this, and thr this, but you see his impulsivity creating a storyline that helps him sort of stir the pot with his base. >> doesn't it almost feel like listening to sports radio or talk radio, where you're kind of free-wheeling with ideas and jokes and insults? i mean, in a strange way, it is 1600 pennsylvania avenue, and it feels kind of like a sports radio broadcast. >> yeah. and that impulsiveness gets him a lot of attention. we know he likes that.
he sees the energy it gives his crowd. certainly something to keep watching for as we get closer to 2020. thanks. two big nights of cnn democratic presidential debates. ten candidates each night. starting at 8:00 p.m. tonight. live from deprotroit only on cn a hacker gained access to more than 100 million capital one customer accounts and credit card applications. 100 million. 33-year-old paige thompson is accused of breaking into a capital one server and gaining access to, specifically, 140,000 social security numbers, 1 million canadian social insurance numbers, 80,000 bank account numbers. she accessed an undisclosed number of names, addresses, credit scores, credit limits, balances, all that information. according to the department of justice, she worked as a tech software engineer for the cloud hosting company that capital one was using.
