tv New Day With Alisyn Camerota and John Berman CNN September 11, 2019 5:00am-6:00am PDT
hour trip there to campaign for bishop and that may have helped the republican win. this election also holds some warning signs for president trump and congressional republicans heading into the 2020 election. also, a new cnn poll just out shows that 6 in 10 americans believe president trump does not deserve a second term. >> president trump this morning is searching for a new national security adviser after parting ways with john bolton. no president has had four national security advisers in his first term. not ever. cnn has new reporting on a bitter argument between bolton and the president that took place monday night over the president's decision to invite the taliban to camp david. the white house is now considering, we are told, about 10 candidates to replace bolton. we're going to begin with the special election overnight in north carolina. joining us, cnn political director david chalian. dan bishop the republican won by two points in a district donald trump won by 12. you can see the math there. what are the implications? >> the sigh of relief
republicans are breathing is really just short-term sigh of relief. there are really warning signs in the results. let's look, though. what we see in this district last night is sort of the definition of what modern american politics in the trump era is. there's a big urban/suburban versus rural/ex-urban divide. as donald trump proved if you can turbo charge that rural vote and if turnout is lower, that's how he was able to score that electoral college victory even though he lost the popular vote. here's the issue i'd learn here. those suburbs, they've drifted even further away from donald trump since he got elected in 2016. that's the problem. the area just if you look at just the suburban part of the district around charlotte, the charlotte suburbs, donald trump actually, when he won the district by 12 points, he won that suburban area of the district by just a little bit. mccready won it by double
digits, the democrat yesterday. that's the warning sign that's on the to-do list for the trump campaign. >> in the battleground states for 2020, are there more rural voters or suburban voters? >> it's such a good question. i was thinking last night. here's a red district. trump won it by 12. it's a red district. what about michigan and wisconsin and pennsylvania if i try extrapolate it. those are bluish states. donald trump won them in 2016 but they're bluish states. there's the opportunity there with urban and suburban voters for the democrat if the right democrat is nominate forward the party to get all the voters ot. that may be a warning sign for donald trump that his path to 270 is not going to be as easy through those bluish states. he really excels in red areas. that's what i think this district will show. >> more than 30 house seats that are in republican hands that are less republican. >> correct. >> so you can see that those may be in danger. there is a new poll out today from abc news and "the
washington post." and i think it's not disconnected from this completely. it's the head-to-head mautchups between the democratic candidates and president trump. and you can see that joe biden is leading is way more than any other of the democratic candidates. and the reason clearly trying to position itself as the campaign that can reach the trump democrats. when you take this poll, combine it with what we're seeing in north carolina, what's the message that you take away? >> yeah, i think one of the things that democrats will look at in north carolina is, how did a democrat come so close in a very republican area where they did have to appeal to no doubt some people that voted for donald trump. you did that by running a moderate who focused on bread and butter issues like health care and education and he had military service that he put forward in his biography. that is sort of the joe biden model, right? not run too far to the left.
really try to make sure you're appealing to white, noncollege educated working class voters, trump democrats. some see that's the model of a democrat we need as the nominee in order to compete with trump. listen. a year from now, i don't think any of us think that the election is going to be a 15-point spread. our modern day presidential elections are not that big. but this goes directly to what joe biden is selling. that he is the best equipped, the safest choice to beat donald trump. you hear some of his competitors, bltelizabeth warre cory booker saying we can't go with a safe choice. that's not the way you'll turn out and turbo charge that democratic turnout in the urban and suburban areas. >> president trump's approval rating is down. a new cnn poll. it shows where it's been over the past many months. it's at its lowest level at the moment. 39% approval. 55% disapprove. but it fluctuates, obviously. so the highest has been 43. >> this is the lowest point
since january. he was at 37%. that's when there was the government shutdown. this is his lowest point since then. he operates in a narrow band but this is no doubt he's down in a place a year and two months out where his climb back is steeper than it has been at other times in his presidency. and i think, guys if you look inside these numbers, a, the push away that donald trump has done with independents that we saw in 2018 that delivered the house majority democrats, he hasn't wooed a single one of those folks back. that's clear in these numbers. and two, the economy, which was such a huge advantage for him in terms of approval versus disapproval. it's an even split. it's still his best issue. >> one of the new numbers is that 60% now say the president does not deserve re-election, which is a tough number. 14 months before election day. tie it all together. back to north carolina for a second. the president won north carolina by 3.6%? >> right.
>> in 2016. if you take the north carolina number in nine which the district owned, does this put north carolina in play? >> i will be very surprised if north carolina is not a battleground state where both trump and the democratic nominee are spending millions of dollars there. it will be the next year. it's not florida, to be really fought out. it's that next tier of battleground states. >> david chalian, great to have you in studio. president trump is searching for a new national security adviser today after abruptly firing john bolton. if you considered months abrupt. sources tell cnn at least ten candidates are being floats to replace him. joining us now is the democratic whip dick durbin. >> good morning. >> so you wrote and i will just read it for everybody, in may you wrote this of the then national security adviser john bolton. you said, trump's policies at the direction of mr. bolton seem
to have only increased regional tensions, incent vised iran to restart its nuclear program and fomented a pretext for another middle eastern war. so senator, this morning, are you relieved that john bolton is gone? >> i don't know whether john bolton jumped or was pushed. i don't believe he was ever a good choice to be national security adviser but we hold our breath now to see who might follow. it appears the president watches a certain cable channel and if someone makes a good impression, he says that's the man to lead the national security policy of the united states. we'll wait and see. >> if that's his criterian, and it may very well be, given all the people from k.t. mcfarland, bill shine, heather nauert, one of the ambassadors, scott brown, i could go through all the people that had been on fox news as contributors or correspondents that are now or were somehow around the white house. so if that's it, then i'd
suggest to you that it might be general jack keen next but here's the list of all the people whose names are being floated as possible next national security adviser. there are ten names. obviously, they're casting a wide net. do any of these work for you? who would you like to see? >> i can tell you what i'm looking for. a grown up. i'm looking for someone who understands the consequences of war. someone who realizes the united states has historically played a positive role when it comes to world peace. someone who is willing to tell this president he's just plain wrong. if we don't find such a person, i'm afraid this president's instincts move us in the wrong direction in a dangerous direction. >> john bolton was willing to tell the president he was wrong. that didn't work out well. >> i don't think the president really looks for that in a staff member. that's why the exit door at the white house has been so busy since he was elected to the presidency. >> i guess the larger issue is what do you think changes today in foreign policy with no
national security adviser at the moment and john bolton gone? >> i don't know. this president does things impulsively, inviting the taliban, a terrorist organization to come to camp david, for goodness sakes. this notion that he can sit down with kim jong-un and north korea and solve a problem that we faced for decades and clearly that exploded in his face. case by case you go through it and you say, you need some grown-up in the room who will tell this president that just doesn't work. it makes the world more dangerous. and the united states should not be following that policy. >> i want to talk to you about vaping. i know this is a subject that is very important to you, and it's important to so many parents around the country because, of course, this was supposed to be somehow the kindler, gentler version of smoking. kids got entirely the wrong message. it's turned out to be deadly. we're seeing people dying now from vaping. and i know that you had a press conference on monday and urged the fda to take action. what do you want?
>> i can tell you this. vaping targets kids. 1 out of 5 of our teenagers in high school today are vaping. and sadly, that number increased by 80% over the last year. now in the seventh and eighth grade we're seeing kids trying this vaping. they think it's a healthy ooltsive to tobacco. the health and drug administration calls it an epidemic and finally this week they came out and said to juul, stop making these false health claims. this is not a safe alternative to tobacco. we need the fda to step up. they can end the flavor pods that attracts these kids. they have the authority today to take many of these devices off the market. it's time to step up or this epidemic is going to grow. >> by step up, what do you want to see? >> well, i'd like to see a letter from the surgeon general to every principal of every american school asking for an assembly and meet with parents to tell them what these kids are facing. they're naive if parents believe
it's somebody else's kid and even if my kid isn't lost in this cloud of smoke it's not that harmful. exactly the opposite is true. we lost the sixth victim to vaping last night. over 450 have been hospitalized. a third of them go directly to the intensive care unit when they go to the hospital. and a third are on res pirators. this is a deadly epidemic and it's time for america and this government to step up. >> senator, why are you so passionate about this issue? >> it's the same bunch that brought us big tobacco. my family has been touched by death from tobacco related lung cancer and i can just see families across the united states saying, me, too. and we finally called them to task. we finally brought them to a point where they stopped peddling their product to kids and then reinvented themselves as a vaping operation. a, quote, safe, healthy alternative to tobacco. it's a fraud on the public. vaping targets kids. and we've got to say once and for all this is an outrage that
needs to end. >> all you kind of need to know, in terms of their debating whether or not they target kids, they had a school outreach program. they had a school outreach program where they went in to talk to kids. what else do you need to know about their target audience. >> look at the flavors being peddled. unicorn milk, bubble gum flavors, gummy bear flavors. that is not a flavor pod that's going to be -- going to attract a 50-year-old chain smoker who is trying to quit. it's designed to attract children and unfortunately it's extremely extremeful. vaping targets kids and it's hard to put an end to it. >> senator dick durbin, thank you very much for coming in to talk about all of these pressing issues. >> you're welcome. breaking overnight, a tornado carved a path of destruction through sioux falls, south dakota. extensive damage including downed power lines and trees. the windows of a hospital were blown out. eight people at the hospital were injured. the walls of an auto parts store
you can see there simply peeled off. cnn meteorologist chad myers joins us now. what happened there? >> just getting first light here. we had a line of weather that was moving through sioux falls. some of these storms were rotating. it didn't look like anything more than a wind gust potntsial, but as the storm got close to sioux falls, this is backing you up to 11:00 last night, there were rotating supercells behind the first row. usually when the first row goes by, it cools off and you don't get the tornado potential. that's not what happened last night. the storm continued to develop right over sioux falls, and it was likely an ef-2 or ef-3 damage i'm seeing there now. but it was very brief. it may have been on the ground for four minutes. and many areas there did have warnings. the warnings were out. tornado warnings. sirens going off. 11 tornadoes yesterday. 45 severe reports and also large hail. this could happen again today. it happened at night, one of the most dangerous times of the day because people are almost asleep
or you're not hearing things. you really aren't listening for the weather radio or maybe your phone didn't go off. but here is the problem for tonight. another round of weather develops in the daytime and continues to go through the nighttime. this is now 6:00 tonight, a forecast radar. look what happened. 10:00, 11:00, 12:00 tonight through the dakotas into the great lakes. big weather with the potential for more storms today. back to you. >> chad, watching it very closely. thank you very much. a narrow win for the republican in north carolina's special election with key help from president trump. the newest congressman-elect in america. you can see him right there. dan bishop joins us live, next. yet some say it isn't real milk. i guess those cows must actually be big dogs. sit! i said sit! booking.com offers free so bookers can book now...

hands. bishop thanked president trump over the phone during his victory speech. >> mr. president, on behalf of north carolina, on behalf of the 9th district, i want to thank you because, just as you said, mr. president, because you and the vice president committed and came down here and recognized someone who is prepared to say that i am ready to go to washington and stand with you, we've won this race. thank you, mr. president. >> and congressman-elect dan bishop joins me now. i can see the smile on your face after a hard-foughtep deprived,i can still smile so i'm delighted to be with you. >> we heard you talk about president trump on stage. we heard the speakerphone conversation you had with the president. he travelled to your district 24 hours before the polls actually opened. how much of a difference did the president make? >> it was a big deal. it was testament to the boldness of this president that he reached out because, you know, a lot of national outlets say this
is a republican district and it's had a republican history for sure, but this race was going on for a long time before i joined it. i've only been in six months and really, just six weeks did we have a level playing field financially with the campaign on the other side that was running with, you know, $10 million, $12 million of outside money seeking to flip the seat blue. so we were far behind. we were making progress, but the president and vice president pence coming in, i think it put us over the top. >> just one point of clarification. people call it a republican district because it is. it's been in republican hands since the early '60s and n it b points in 2016. it's a district that is consistently and fairly easily gone toward republicans. we'll get to that in a moment. i am curcurious, though, becaus you say president trump's visit and his campaigning was helpful if not decisive in your victory. what's your advice to other republican candidates around the country heading into 2020.
to what degree do you think they should solidly embrace president trump? >> i would say that the trump vision is a very attractive one, and it makes all the sense in the world to embrace it. how could you not like it? it's a stronger economy. a robust economy with lower taxes and more jobs and border security and continued embrace of american exceptionalism that's always been the root of this country. and the contrasting vision of elizabeth warren and beto o'rourke and even debra messing is a much darker picture. so i would say the president is the toughest fighter we've ever had and join him in the fight because america's worth fighting for. today is 9/11, and it reminds us all that freedom is not free. and he's fighting for that freedom. he's fighting for common sense solutions for americans.
and i am all in. >> it's interesting. you brought up some democrats there, but the man you ran against, dan mccready, most decidedly, isn't elizabeth warren or debra messing for that matter. he's dan mccready, a marine veteran there. i do want to ask because last night after he conceded, you called him a very strong candidate and said he fought a hard battle. what do you think made him a strong candidate in your district? >> to be sure, he's a fine person. and his service in the marine corps is a credit to him and should always be respected. one thing, though, that you can't deny made him a strong contender was the fact he had -- he professed in sort of a slogan to be moderate, but you didn't ever hear much in the way of specifics that made him a moderate and he was enabled and financed by a flood of the farthest left money in
america. from outside the district. so -- and then when it came down to details, he embraced the idea of sanctuary counties in our case where you have local law enforcement deciding for the first time in north carolina not to cooperate with immigration authorities. i don't think that helped. and i think it made it an opportunity for people to see that this is not common sense, and it doesn't fit north carolina. >> part of what was interesting to me is you said he ran as a moderate, which he did. he absolutely did. and one of the questions is, what's happened in your district and what does it mean around the country that it went from plus 12 to donald trump to a victory by 2% for you and frankly when this race was first run in 2018, the margin was smaller. there's a ten-point swing there from 2016 to now and a year ago. why do you see that happening? >> well, i do think any time you can put one candidate up who professes to be a moderate and
support him with $10 million to $15 million -- >> he didn't have that by himself. just to be clear. he didn't have that in 2018 in the first race. that race was completely under the radar. he had money this time around. so did you when push came to shove at the end. a lot of money in this race. >> at the end. >> but the clear swing from 2016 to 2018 and 2019, how do you explain that? >> well, 2018, you're right. and we had four times the margin that the republican candidate who did not then get certified had in 2018. in 2018, it was a very different time than now. that was before the squad emerged. that was before the time that democrats emerged openly embracing democrat presidential candidates emerged openly embracing socialism. it's a far different political scene than it was then, and it gives the opportunity to refocus on, as president trump says sometimes to people, dwhoot you have to lose?
you have an economy that's surging. unemployment numbers that are the best in history for multiple groups. it really is a pretty attractive picture. and i think that contrast is becoming clearer every day. so this race is a far different one than in 2018, and if there was a narrow margin here, the best explanation for it is, we had a lot to do in six weeks basically. >> absolutely a different election. you won. but so did the republican in 2018. albeit by a smaller margin, like 1500 votes or -- you won by 4,000. he won by 908 but there was voter fraud there. i'm not sure you're fully understanding what you think the difference between 2016 and now is. you think -- let me put it differently. you think whatever wave profelled democrats to parr in 2018, is that over? >> i think there's a more complicated picture in america. i think there's evolution in
both parties. the democratic party is becoming more a party of the elites. and the republican party is becoming a party more of working people throughout the nation. and i think you're seeing, it will take some time for all that to settle out. but a lot of it revolves around the president's priorities and personality and his standing up and fighting. and i think the principles he's fighting for are important. >> congressman-elect dan bishop, congratulations. hope you get a chance to sleep over the next few days before you head to washington and get to work. >> thank you, john. thank you. all right. well, john bolton's turb lent term as national security adviser is over. how will this affect america's foreign policy? former ambassador samantha powers joins us, next. your new boss seems cool, but she might not be sweatpants cool. not quite ready to face the day? that's why we're here with free hot breakfast.

the first term. joining me is samantha power, former u.s. ambassador to the united states under president obama and the author of a new book, the education of an idealist. thank you for being with us. let me ask you because john bolton was your predecessor. what do you make of his departure from the white house? >> well, i think it's a sign that president trump wants around him people who reflect back trump's own views, rather than people who dissent, but also bolton was somebody who, through his career, but also while at the white house, has been inclined to push military force in iran and to invoke it even in the case of venezuela. and so for some around the world, it will be a big source of relief, in fact, that bolton has departed. for others, and i think i see it both ways, but it's a sign that trump wants yes men around him and doesn't want people who dissent, which is very disturbing. >> rand paul says i think the threat of war world wide goes
down with john bolton out of the white house. >> yes, although trump has made his own decisions up to this point. certainly what bolton was advocating was more militaristic than where trump was willing to go but bolton was saying be careful about legitimating the taliban and all these nice things you're saying about kim jong-un who killed an american student not that long ago and murders many people within his own country and pursues nuclear weapons. he was cautionary on the legitimation of bad guys, aggressive when it came to using military force. but the bigger question is, how do people trust that what they see is what they get in the united states? and how does the national security apparatus work when we have no secretary of homeland security, no deputy secretary of homeland security or director of national intelligence and now no national security adviser. >> you asked the question there. what's the impact of all of that? >> profound. in the sense that nobody also even knows what they can believe, who to trust, which relationships to invest in. there's really one decider and
that's the president which is, of course, always the case up to a point. but people generally feel that they can invest in relationships and know that there's going to be table, what they hear back is likely a predictor of what is going to happen. now they're just watching trump's twitter feed and what he says on a monday radically departs from what high says e s today. >> the president inviting the taliban to camp david to negotiate. bolton didn't want that. the spat became quite public. what's your view of the notion of negotiating with the taliban? >> we have to have some kind of peaceful -- negotiated exit out of an 18-year conflict. it's just not sustainable to have one segment of our society bearing this burden for us, taking casualties as we did just last week. 16 americans killed this year, and this is 18 years after september 11th. but that said, there's a time for the president to be involved, and there needs to be
an awful lot of work done. this was going to be just a first step in what will be a probably a lengthy and complex negotiation. so i'm for negotiated settlement. i'm skeptical that the taliban will deliver, as many are, and i think one thing that i want to stress is that women so far have not been included at all in even the negotiating room. of course, they wouldn't be present on the taliban side but for us to push that as the afghan government and taliban are brought together is very important and all the data shows that peace settlements that don't include women are far more likely to fail. >> all throughout your book and throughout your career you talk about the struggle for human rights around the world and your own personal efforts on that front. where do you think it stands right now? how much of a priority do you see human rights for this administration? >> well, i mean, i don't think human rights are a priority for this administration domestically, in terms of the attacks on the media, judges, the rule of law, political opponents.
that's not where president trump's head is. and internationally we've seen great affection for very abusive regimes and great criticisms of some of the great democracies around the world. what i try to do in the book is tell the story of what it was like to be a woman in national security, to be a woman at the united nations where there are very few women all these years after the founding of the u.n. there's still never been a woman secretary-general. quite few women ambassadors even. but also talk about the solidarity that women can create in these pretty male dominated institutions. even as we differ over policy because there's no formula. it's not like just because you're a woman you have a certain view of how things are going to go, but you can look out for each other in these difficult environments. >> the book is an unbelievable combination of policy and completely well written and compelling and funny at times also. you talk about what it was like to be a woman in the middle of all this. and you tell a story about your
son who wanted to tell you the score of a game. >> a baseball nut. >> which means you're a great parent, but and you couldn't talk to him because you were on the phone with the secretary-general? >> not a parent watching your show who hasn't had a version of this experience. you're there. you're on the phone on a work call as it happens, you know, this happened -- this has happened so many times. i can't even count. but talking to the secretary-general or secretary of state, in this case, i was having a conversation about russian sanctions and my son is coming up and he just wants -- he's at me and i'm shooing him away. every parent knows this experience. not right now. i'm on the phone. hold that thought. and he stomps away and the only thing different about my experience than your average parent is as he stomps away he says putin, putin, putin, when is it going to be declan, declan, declan. it was the hapless juggle i was in the midst of. >> how you wrote about president
obama and your relationship with president obama over the years. you got to know him when he was first elected senator and you're still in touch with him now. but he depended on you for a certain kind of advice inside the oval office. and in some way, he basically said we know where you come from, samantha. explain that. >> well, i think he was a believer that quite the contrary of what we were talking about in the bolton context, president obama really wanted to diverse viewpoints. he came from having been a professor at constitutional law where he'd watch students spar in front of him and sort of divine his truth or his way forward even in a classroom that way. and the environment he created at the white house was very similar. when i wasn't present in a meeting and there was a human rights issue that was going to be like, where's sam? it didn't mean he was going to like what i said or agree with what i said, but he really wanted to see people battling it out as he figured out what his decision was going to be. sometimes as he would say, i got on his nerves because, you know,
sometimes, especially when it's a human rights issue about women's rights or children's rights, you know, and you feel though there's a short-term expedient thing to do in the here and now on behalf of the american people that sort of internal conflict within yourself is not all that pleasant. wouldn't be pleasant for me either. but, you know, really his style of leadership was to cultivate dissent, and it was really important. >> ambassador samantha power, thanks for being with us. "the education of an idealist." >> thank you so much. >> i love the story of juggling the calls between the secretary-general and your children. yes, we all can trolt some portion of that. "new day" and much of the country will stop to honor the victims and heroes of 9/11 18 years after the terror attacks. we bring you that live, next. i get it all the time.
