tv   Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett  CNN  February 3, 2020 2:00am-2:59am PST

2:00 am
bowl champs for the first time in 50 years. >> and what a halftime show. i've got to tell you, i'm going to be honest. but it was worth it. that was a game worth it. >> shakira and j.lo. >> exactly, i love the halftime show. good morning, everyone. welcome to "early start." i'm christine jarrett. >> and i'm christine romans. let's gin here this is week that will reverberate in u.s. history. in president trump's impeachment trial today marks the beginning of the end in the democratic race to unseat the president it is the end of the beginning. the first of the nation caucuses in iowa are today. after a year of campaigning we get a first glimpse of how voters feel about this democratic field, a field that has shrunk considerably but remains deep with months of voting to go. and closing arguments are today in the president's impeachment trial. a forgone conclusion the senate will acquit him on charges he abused his power. but the push to uncover who knew
2:01 am
what and when could be just beginning. the final vote is expected on wednesday. and oh, by the way, the president will get a head start on his victory lap tomorrow night with his "state of the union" speech in nancy pelosi's chamber. >> but we begin in iowa where democrats will begin answering the critical 2020 question today, can a party at war with itself beat the president in november? arlette saenz begins our coverage with the biden campaign in des moines. >> reporter: heading into tonight's caucus he's essentially framing this as a matchup between himself and the president. biden has also been arguing he is the candidate who could best unify and heal the country which he thinks something democrats are craving in this presidential race. now, he has at times tried to make some distinctions between himself and the other contenders. over the weekend he was arguing that democrats and iowans need to consider a candidate who can actually fulfill the promises and make their promises a
2:02 am
reality. and take a listen to part of the closing message he left with iowans as he held his final rally in des moines. >> we choose hope over fear. we choose science -- science over fiction. and we choose unity over division. and we choose truth over lies. >> reporter: now, bidens campaign has said iowa is not a must-win state, but he has invested significant time and resources here in the state. biden himself has predicted that this will be a toss up. he believes that candidates could emerge from iowa bunched up in the amount of delegates that they acquire. and what biden and his team have argued is that he has a diverse coalition waiting for him in states like south carolina and super tuesday which have a more diverse demographic, but biden as he's closed out his argument
2:03 am
and his pitch to iowans here, he has stressed to them they should caucus for him because the president is most concerned about facing him in a general election. laura and christine? >> arlette, thanks so much. and joe biden has been a front-runner since he first got in the race, but a late surge by bernie sanders even after a heart attack just four months ago underscores just how fractured the party is right now. cnn ryan nobles is on the trail in iowa with the sanders campaign. >> reporter: christine and laura, bernie sanders is back in washington, d.c. today after spending all of sunday in iowa. and right now his campaign is feeling confident. they do believe that there are more caucus goers, democratic caucus goers here in this state that support his campaign than any other campaigns. but their focus now is getting them to those caucus locations on monday night. and sanders chris crossed the state on sunday particularly hitting these canvas locations where his volunteers are then going to go out into the community and get those people
2:04 am
to show up on caucus night. this was sanders final push to his volunteers to make sure they understood the stakes that were ahead of them. >> my request of all of you is to do everything that you can in the next 24 hours, to knock on doors, to talk to your friends, to get on the phone to make sure that we have a large turn out tomorrow night. because i've said this before and i'll say it again. if there is a low voter turn out tomorrow night, we're going to lose. >> so there's no question sanders and his team are feeling confident right now, but they know this is close race and nothing is guaranteed. that's why they're putting such a heavy emphasis on their organizational effort here in iowa. important to also point out it is pretty remarkable sanders finds himself in this position on caucus day when just a few months ago he was suffering from a heart attack and many political observers wondered if that was the end of his campaign. he stands now here today in a position to possibly win. laura and christine?
2:05 am
>> ryan for us in des moines. the first of two final anti-climactic stages of president trump's impeachment trial gets under way in a matter of hours. the final vote is scheduled for wednesday, though the outcome is not in doubt. even though the republican senators who admit the president acted improperly, well, they're preparing to acquit him. >> generally speaking going after corruption would be the right thing to do. he did it maybe in the wrong manner. >> the president has a lot of lever to do what he wants to do. again, not what i would have done but certainly again going after corruption, jake. >> so you're saying it's not perfect, i get that -- >> if you look at nixon when the vote to authorize that inquiry was 410-4 and you look at trump where not a single republican voted for it, if you start out with a partisan impeachment you're almost destined to have a partisan acquittal. >> senator alexander says he
2:06 am
doesn't want a partisan process but nauz does not call out republican colleagues in the house who refuse to accept the same fact he does. meantime democrat adam schiff will not say whether the house will subpoena bolton after alexander's vote killed any chance of it happening in the senate. don't expect president trump to apologize or express any contrition. he expect him to claim vindication and proclaim complete and total innocence. >> it was president clinton apologized for putting the nation through that in a public apology. nobody's expecting that from this president. chinese stocks having a really bad day, the worst day in years. investors with their first chance to react to the coronavirus after the lunar new year. certification process. or it isn't. it's either testing an array of advanced safety systems. or it isn't. it's either the peace of mind of a standard unlimited mileage warranty. or it isn't.

shanghai plunged almost 8% on the first day of trading after theec extended new year lunar holiday. so what's happening in futures right now a little bit of a bounce up. it is still really impossible to determine how much this virus will affect the chinese economy. some economists have said china's growth rate could drop 2 percentage points this quarter. a drop that big is about a loss of $62 billion in the chinese economy. china may have to cut taxes, boost spending, slash interest rates, prevent the outbreak from wreaking havoc on an already fragile economy there. mean tile the u.s. has started enforcing tougher travel restrictions in an effort to contain the wuhan coronavirus outbreak. the plan includes a temporary ban on foreign nationals who visited china in 14 days prior to their arrival in the united states. so far the virus has killed more than 350 people and infected more than 17,000 in china. a more than 600% spike since this time last week.
2:12 am
there's also concern for medical teams in china trying to treat the growing number of patients. and this morning the chinese government had some harsh words for the u.s. cnn's david colver is live for us in beijing. david, folks are not happy. obviously officials feel like the u.s. is overreacting. >> reporter: and they feel like, laura, they started what's now looking like a trend of essentially isolating china. you see several countries going forward with their own travel restrictions not allowing people who either come from china or chinese nationals coming into their confrauntries for a certa period of time. that's why they're upset and it seems to also be relevant for the americans still within the locked down zones, the city of wuhan we know several hundred are there. we've spoken with them. they were supposed to get out on a flight today but they're hearing it was delayed. we're trying to get exact confirmation what's going on with that flight, but it may be a back and forth between the two governments and we know the chinese foreign ministry came
2:13 am
out really strong a few hours ago in harsh words toward the u.s. government and here's what they said. quote, the u.s. government hasn't provided any substantial assistance to us but it was the first to evacuate personnel from its consulate in wuhan, the first to suggest partial withdrawal from its embassy staff and the first to impose a travel ban on chinese travelers. all it has done could only create and spread fear, which is a bad example. essentially saying that now other countries are doing the same and that's creating a lot of pain for china as a whole. meantime we do know chinese officials are still working with the u.s. secretary of state mike pompeo says they're trying to figure out how to get the aircraft to wuhan. chinese officials have said essentially they only have room for aircraft coming in with supplies because they are in dire need of medical supplies especially on the front lines there. so we've seen japan and south korea with their evacuation flights bringing in supplies, kind of a gesture of good will. it's possible according to
2:14 am
pompeo, secretary of state saying they're looking into that exchange as well essentially. >> david, thanks so much. see you soon. all right, it was 50 years in the making but the kansas city chiefs and their fans finally have another super i remember thinking about things i did and wondering

2:24 am
asking her to point out ukraine on a map which she says she did. >> this from cnn's rebecca buck. as if losing the rams weren't enough now missouri has zero nfl teams by presidential decree. this map has been retweeted thousands of times. it looks like someone took a sharpie to kansas and extended it into missouri. remember sharpie gate? after about 10 minutes the president deleted the tweet and posted a new one with the correct state. >> what would we do if we couldn't delete tweets? three frenzied days that could shake this country for years to come. the senate poised to acquit the president in his impeachment trial. what he will say about all this in tomorrow's "state of the union." my psoriatic arthritis pain? i had enough! it's not getting in my way. joint pain, swelling, tenderness... ...much better. my psoriasis, clearer... cosentyx works on all of this.

2:31 am
by the way, the president will get a head start on his victory lap with the "state of the union." >> but we begin in iowa where democrats will begin answering the critical 2020 question today. can a party at war with itself beat the president in november? here's a sample of their closing arguments. >> we choose unity over division and we choose truth over lies. >> we've got a choice to make. now, we can bend our knees, we can pull in, we can cower. we can be tenant or we can fight back. me, i'm fighting back. that's why i'm here. >> i've said this before and i'll say it again, if there is a low voter turn out tomorrow night, we're going to lose. >> look, i know that we're in a primary right now, but one of your jobs is to look at how we're going to win in the general. that is your job. my profound advice is this. we better not screw this up. >> every single time my party
2:32 am
has won the white house in the last 50 years we have done it with a candidate who is new in national politics, who is opening the door to a new generation of leadership and who either doesn't work in washington or hasn't been there very long. that is how we win. >> all right, a very special guest. "early start" alum and new day anchor john berman begins our coverage live in des moines. one of the things christina and i have been talking about this morning is just how undecided folks are heading into tonight. it seems like obviously the caucuses are a little bit different process than obviously the other races where the second choice really matters. what do you think? >> this is my sixth iowa caucus, which means i've been coming here since i was 3 years old, and i have never seen such indecision the day before, just hours before the actual vote. the voters here really are shopping in a way that i haven't
2:33 am
seen before you heard amy klobuchar there saturday night where she said we better not skru this up. and that's the mentality voters have going into caucus night. for the democratic voters of iowa their animated feature is they want to beat president trump, and they desperately want the person who can best do that, and they're not sure yet who that person is. one of the things you've heard them say on tv but you hear them say in person, too, is i wish we could combine two or three of them to come up with the perfect canned candidate. on the other hand they know what way minutech and it's leading to a night like tonight where i have never seen any possible variable outcomes. >> it's interesting. the caucus is such a unique experience where there's really kind of like a low grade peer pressure that happens here. you're in this room, and if you don't have enough supporters of your candidate, then you try to convince each other to go to
2:34 am
another candidate either separately or, you know, as an entire group. so it could really be the spur situation of the iowa voters in there, john, who decide that they feel comfortable about pete buttigieg or they feel more comfortable about an amy klobuchar or bernie sanders. it really depends on how iowa voters convince each other. >> you call it low grade peer pressure. that's just because you know they're iowa nice, but they're also iowa organized. right, so figuring out a way to get those voters who initially pick a candidate below the 15% threshold and the way it works in democratic caucuses is if you don't have 15% in any precinct, your votes don't count. at least they don't count towards delegate selection so you get the chance to cot frs another candidate. there could be a candidate who gets 14% which isn't bad, but all those voters in the precinct can go choose somebody else. that is why these campaigns are desperately trying to be the
2:35 am
second choice for so many candidates, and it's also why you've seen these candidates be reluctant to be too negative because they don't want to turn anyone off. >> it is that process that exploded barack obama onto the scene, really, those iowa voters talking amongst each other decided he was the candidate they wanted. >> and iowa is the place that had more people who flipped from obama to trump. >> 31 counties. >> john, there was a little thing that happened last night called the super bowl and there were no patriots in it so maybe it didn't rise to your level of interest. but there was an ad that caught our attention. and boston area native john berman we wanted to play a little of it for you. >> look at this guy. how, rachel, how are you? >> good. how are you? >> he's not getting that car in there. >> no, sir. >> is that new? >> josh, what i wonder is when
2:36 am
you're not in your tv anchorman voice is this how you talk? >> that's exactly how i talk. actually the funny thing is none of those three talk like that each other because they all grew up in the suburbs like i did. we lived in the ritzy suburbs not in the south boston, all three of them. chris evans was actually in the same childrens theater group that i was. a few years behind me because i might be a few years older but that ad made me crack up. you guys were talking about shakira and jennifer lopez in the beginning, am i the only one that shakira was way better? >> john stirring trouble this morning. >> do not put any kind of jinx on my girl power narrative. >> i was watching a lot of it with that volume so i don't know exactly how they were singing but just the visual presentation, shakira is very talented. >> yeah, they're both very talented. i would like to say the core

strength of both those women is just oh, my goodness. all right, john berman. >> thanks, john. >> nice to see you. have fun. all right more on all this plus chinese stocks having their worst day in years. investors having the first chance now to react to the coronavirus after the lunar new year. this is my body of proof. proof i can fight moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. proof i can fight psoriatic arthritis... ...with humira. proof of less joint pain... ...and clearer skin in psa. humira targets and blocks a source of inflammation that contributes to joint pain and irreversible damage. humira can lower your ability to fight infections. serious and sometimes fatal infections,
2:38 am
including tuberculosis, and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened, as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. humira is proven to help relieve pain, stop further joint damage,... ...and clear skin in psa. want more proof? ask your rheumatologist about humira. here hold this.? follow that spud.

all right, good morning. americans are in for three days unlike anything seen in the u.s. for a long whereby long time. democrats voting today in iowa, a fractured party struggling to coalesce around a nominee. a fractured party that needs to heal to face president trump who will be cleared by the senate this week as well. >> joining us this morning is "the washington post" white house correspondent, a cnn political analyst as well. thanks so much for getting up with us this morning. >> good morning. >> good morning. so who needs a big stand out
2:41 am
performance tonight? really obviously we don't have a poll right now to reference one that would sort of guide us on this, but who really needs a big night tonight? >> well, there are several candidates that are looking to have a win of some kind out of iowa even if they don't come away with all the delegates or come away leading. there are people like amy klobuchar. if she does not have a great night it may be difficult for her to build a case for her candidacy. similar to mayor pete buttigieg. this is his best state so far when it comes to polling and he needs a strong showing tonight to be able to show he can compete in places like new hampshire. joe biden has also kind of gone up and down in the polls. he is someone looking to have a solid showing tonight to be able to say he can continue onto the new hampshire and get to south carolina which is seen as his best state, and there are other people who have been organizing here for several months
2:42 am
including elizabeth warren and bernie sanders and they're both vying for the top spot so they can claim a victory out of iowa and sort of launch into new hampshire with a lot of momentum. >> iowa really matters for democrats. maybe even more so than it does for republicans. you know, when you look at who wins iowa in recent history except with a couple ofxes that person tends to go onto be the nominee. what is so interesting about what happens in those caucus sites. >> those church basements. >> those church basements and school gyms is these are iowans who will convince each other how to line up with a candidate as well. so it just feels so undecided today heading into these caucuses. >> that's exactly right. there are a lot of undecided voters who are going to decide tonight who to vote for. maybe if they vote for someone who doesn't show they're viable, doesn't meet that 50% threshold, they're going to have to choose a second choice.
2:43 am
there's going to be a lot of convincing going on at the last minute with various campaigns trying to convince people maybe i wasn't your first choice but vote for me on the second ballot. that's why we may have multiple winners out of this. but the second ballot did not do -- i didn't do as well on the second ballot, so we could see a lot of spin coming out of tonight with different candidates showing ways to say that they were victorious or they did well in part because there is so much uncertainty and there are going to be multiple different results out of tonight. not just one top winner. >> you're on the ground there. if you notice is there a wedge issue of sorts really separating folks? >> well, there are a few different wedge issues, and there's a lot of tension right now within the party. you had a congressman, a supporter of bernie sanders boo hillary clinton so there's a lot of angst over the last election. and this divide between sort of the moderates and the insurgent wing, the bernie sanders, the warren wing of the party.

health care is the biggest argument in that front, people who say medicare for all is the only way to go and others who say that would hurt the economy, hurt the insurance industry, make it hard for people to keep their private insurance. that's probably the biggest wedge issue within the party. but there's a lot of residual concern and angst since 2016. some of those wounds have not healed since bernie sanders and hillary clinton had a very difficult primary that went longer than expected and that left a lot of sore feelings within the party. and we're seeing some of that bubble up, and it could continue into 2020 as well. >> obviously we've seen the sore feelings continue between the two of them, trading barbs in the press as well. >> going to have some good weather. 36 degrees, 21 low tonight. that's great. that's a heat wave by iowa february standards, so that could be good for turn out. nice to see you. >> thanks so much for getting up with us. see you soon. almost 45 minutes past the hour. chinese stocks having their worst day in years.
2:45 am
investors finally have a chance to react to the coronavirus. shanghai stocks plunged almost 8% on the first day of trading after an extended lunar new year holiday. that's the worst day since august 2015. now there's an escalating back and forth between the u.s. and china over the response. cnn's david colver in beijing and the united states enforcing some travel restrictions now and china saying, wait, you're overreacting. >> right. it seems that china is quite frustrated with this, christine. and they came out through their foreign ministry today and they essentially said, look, by doing this travel restriction the u.s. has set a precedent. okay, they've got other countries now following suit and china is becoming increasingly isolated. it's hurting here and that's what the country is pushing back against. but at the same time they also point out that other countries have stepped in to help. namely japan and south korea, for example. when they bring their flights in to evacuate their citizens, they're also bringing medical supplies and the citizens get on
2:46 am
those planes and go back to their home countries. in the first flight with the u.s. it now appears that didn't happen and there's a hold up for a second flight. there are hundreds of americans in the city of wuhan trying to get out. and they were telling me in the past several hours they were supposed to leave today, it's been delay, they're not sure what's going on. and it's possible it's this back and forth between the two governments right now. now we asked the chinese foreign ministry is this punishment for the u.s. issuing this travel restriction against china. they didn't comment directly but they did say they need to keep room at the wuhan airport for aircraft that bring in enough supplies which they are in dire need of. so it seems to suggest they're looking for that good will exchange, christine. >> david colver in beijing for us this morning. thank you, david. we'll be right back.

coaches in the nfl. he's a walking sound machine or quote machine he said. afterwards he said i'm going to go and get the biggest cheeseburger you've ever seen. >> thanks, coy. >> coy wire, nice to see you. >> well, president trump miffing his congratulatory tweet to the chiefs. the president praised the champs for representing the great state of kansas. of course, the chiefs play in missouri. matt fuller of huffington post says no one actually thinks trump could locate ukraine on a map, right? remember his secretary of state mike pompeo who is from kansas recently tried to embarrass a reporter by asking her to point out ukraine on a map. >> this map has been retweeted thousands of times. looks like someone took a sharpie to kansas and extended it into missouri. an ode of course to sharpie gate when the president extended that hurricane map. after about 10 minutes the president posted a new tweet with the correct state. well, there was no shortage

struggling with right now. and you noted this in your piece in variety, a sort of cross-pollination going on between brands. we all remember the mr. peanut ad. i think we can play it here. we thought he had died. turns out he's back. >> they had a lot of interesting spokes characters from different walks of laugh in different ads. that's unusual. >> mr. clean, mr. kool-aid showing up there. also between the tom brady hulu ad and mr. peanut ad it's a reminder these companies and brands have done a good job of maximizing their $5 million investment or whatever it is by having social media pushing it before the event, and i'm sure there'll be a tale today, too. >> these ads cost so much they can't afford not to show all they can do. >> i thought it was a good show. it was two female performers but i think you wanted to see a
