CNN’s April Ryan Unleashes FURY on Trump for Moves to Deny Poor Immigrants Green Cards


DEFENSE.>>THIS IS “NEW DAY” WITH ALISYN CAMEROTA AND JOHN BERMAN. >>THIS IS “NEW DAY”, TUESDAY, AUGUST 13th, 6:00 IN NEW YORK. ALISYN OFF. ERICA HILL WITH ME AGAIN THIS MORNING.>>GOOD MORNING. >>GREAT TO HAVE YOU HERE. >>>WE’RE GETTING NEW INFORMATION ABOUT THE SERIOUS IRREGULARITIES AT THE FEDERAL JAIL WHERE JEFFREY EPSTEIN DIED. ACCORDING TO ONE SOURCE, ONE OF THE TWO PEOPLE ASSIGNED TO MONITOR EPSTEIN IN HIS CELL WERE NOT EVEN PART OF THE REGULAR CORRECTIONAL FORCE. EPSTEIN HAD NOT BEEN CHECKED FOR HOURS BEFORE HIS APPARENT SUICIDE.>>>THESE STUNNING FAILURES HAVE LAWMAKERS UNITED. THE ATTORNEY GENERAL SAYING HE IS APPALLED AND ANGRY, VOWING TO FIGHT FOR VICTIMS. WHERE DOES IT GO FROM HERE. CNN IS LIVE IN WASHINGTON WITH ALL OF THESE DEVELOPMENTS THIS MORNING.>>THAT’S RIGHT, WE’RE LEARNING DETAILS ABOUT THE CIRCUMSTANCES IN THE HOURS BEFORE JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S DEATH. ONE ONE OF THE GUARDS THAT WAS GUARDING EPSTEIN WAS NOT TRAINED AS A CORRECTIONAL OFFICER ACCORDING TO A SOURCE FAMILIAR WITH THE INVESTIGATION. IT’S NOT CLEAR WHAT THAT PERSON’S JOB, BUT A REPREPRESENE FOR THE UNION SAYS THIS IS A PROBLEM DUE TO UNDERSTAFFING AND THAT ALL RELATES TO BUDGET CUTS AND A HIRING FREEZE THAT WAS PUT IN PLACE ACROSS LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES INCLUDING THE BUREAU OF PRISONS, WHICH IS RESPONSIBLE FOR OVERSEEING THAT CORRECTIONAL FACILITY. AT THE START OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. AND THAT FREEZE WAS LIFTED IN APRIL, BUT OFFICIALS SAY THAT THE DAMAGE HAS BEEN DONE. NOW, IN ADDITION TO A PERSON NOT BEING TRAINED AS A GUARD WHO WAS THERE LOOKING OVER EPSTEIN, WE’RE ALSO LEARNING THAT IN FACT THERE WAS — THEY WERE OUT LOOKING FOR EPSTEIN FOR HOURS, UNDER THE CONDITIONS OF THE FACILITIES HE WAS IN. HE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE MONITORING EVERY 30 MINUTES. SOURCES TELL US HE HAD NOT BEEN CHECKED ON FOR HOURS. TWO SIGNIFICANT SHORT FALLS THAT HAVE DRAWN THE IRE OF ATTORNEY GENERAL BILL BARR. HERE’S WHAT HE HAD TO SAY YESTERDAY. >>WE WILL GET TO THE BOTTOM OF WHAT HAPPENED, AND THERE WILL BE ACCOUNTABILITY. LET ME ASSURE YOU THIS CASE WILL CONTINUE ON AGAINST ANYONE WHO IS COMPLICIT WITH EPSTEIN. ANY COCONSPIRATORS SHOULD NOT REST EASY. THE VICTIMS DESERVE JUSTICE AND THEY WILL GET IT. >>AND A SIGN THAT THE INVESTIGATION IS CONTINUING DESPITE EPSTEIN’S DEATH. THEY WERE IN THE CARIBBEAN, AT LITTLE ST. JOHN, THE ISLAND THAT EPSTEIN OWNED, TO DOING A RAID ON THE COMPOUND AND GRABBING MORE EVIDENCE AS PART OF THEIR INVESTIGATION IS CONTINUING. JOHN.>>THANK YOU FOR THAT REPORTING. JOINING US IS CNN LEGAL ANALYST, ELLIE HONING. A FORMER FEDERAL PROSECUTOR IN NEW YORK. I KNOW YOU SPENT A LOT OF TIME AS A VISITOR, NOT ARE RESIDENT. THIS REPORT SUGGESTS THIS MORNING THERE’S A STRETCHING, THE STAFF THERE IS A BIT STRETCHED THIN, OVERWORKED, HOW MUCH OF AN EXCUSE IS THAT REALLY. >>IT’S NOT AN EXCUSE AT ALL IN THIS SITUATION, JOHN. STAFFING SHORTAGES ARE A THING ACROSS THE COUNTRY. IT’S THE SHOE FOR A REASON. THE INMATES ARE THE HIGHEST PRIORITY, HIGHEST SENSITIVITY INMATES. THEY ARE USUALLY THERE BECAUSE THEY’RE IN SOME KIND OF DANGER TO THEMSELVES, FROM OTHERS, TO OTHERS. AS YOU HAVE SAID, I HAVE SPENT A LOT OF DAYS IN OR NEAR THE SHOE TALKING TO POTENTIAL WITNESSES AND I CAN TELL YOU IT’S NOT A PHYSICALLY BIG SPACE. IT DOESN’T REQUIRE AN ARMY OF GUARDS TO PATROL IT EFFECTIVELY. TWO TO ME SEEMS AWFULLY LIGHT, ESPECIALLY IF ONE IS NOT A FULL CORRECTIONS OFFICER. YOU CAN ADEQUATELY AND FULLY STAFF THE SHOE WITH REALLY NOT TOO HEAVY AN EXPENDITURE OF RESOURCES. THIS IS REALLY AN INEXPLICABLE FAILURE. >>SMALL ENOUGH THEY WILL BE ABLE TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF IT QUICKLY. YOU SAY YOU’RE WATCHING FOR THE AUTOPSIES CLOSELY. >>AUTOPSIES CAN TELL US A LOT. THEY CAN’T NECESSARILY TELL US EVERYTHING. THERE’S TWO THINGS PEOPLE SHOULD LOOK FOR, FIRST OF ALL, CAUSE OF DEATH, THE OBJECTIVE SCIENTIFIC FACTOR THAT LED TO THE DEATH, AND HERE I THINK THE EXPECT IS THAT IT WILL BE ASPHYXIATION FROM HANGING. IF IT’S ANYTHING ELSE OR INDETERMINATE, THERE’S GOING TO BE QUESTIONS. THE SECOND THING IS MANNER OF DEATH AND THE OPTIONS THERE ARE HOMICIDE, SUICIDE, ACCIDENT OR UNDETERMINED AND AGAIN, I THINK THAT’S GOING TO BE VERY IMPORTANT. SO THOSE ARE THE TWO THINGS TO LOOK FOR WHEN THE AUTOPSY COMES OUT, CAUSE OF DEATH, MANNER OF DEATH. >>”THE NEW YORK TIMES” PUBLISHED A SORT OF ARE YOU KIDDING ME INTERVIEW WITH JEFFREY EPSTEIN. IT WAS DONE BY JAMES STEWART. IT WAS DOWN A YEAR AND A HALF AGO WHEN EPSTEIN WAS ALIVE ON BACKGROUND, WHICH MEANS AT THE TIME STEWART COULDN’T NAME EPSTEIN. SINCE EPSTEIN DIED, STEWART FELT HE COULD PUBLISH THE RESULTS OF IT. IT OBTAINED THIS GRAPH WHICH IS HORRIFYING. EPSTEIN SAID CRIMINALIZING SEX WITH TEENAGE GIRLS WAS A CUL CULTURAL ABERRATION. HE POINTED OUT THAT OKL HOMOSEXUALITY WAS CONSIDERED A CRIME, AND WITNESSED PROMINENT TECH FIGURES TAKING DRUGS AND ARRANGING FOR SEX. THE FIRST PART, TALKING ABOUT DECRIMINALIZING SEX WITH TEENAGERS. THAT DOES GIVE YOU A SENSE OF JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S MENTAL STATE YEARS AFTER HE WAS CONVICTED FOR CRIMES. >>THAT ARTICLE GIVES YOU A LOOK INTO THE GROTESQUE TWISTED MIND OF A SERIAL PREDATOR. THE ARTICLE IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF WHAT GOES ON IN THE MINDS OF CHILD PREDATORS. THEY VIEW THEIR VICTIMS AS NOT HUMAN, JUST AS OBJECTS TO SERVE THEM, AND I’VE SEEN IT BEFORE IN THIS TYPE OF PERSON. AND IN FACT, AS YOU SEE IN THE ARTICLE, ULTIMATELY EPSTEIN ALMOST COMES TO VIEW HIMSELF AS A VICTIM OF OUR SYSTEM OF LAWS, OUR MORALS. IT’S COMPLETELY INEXCUSABLE AND GIVES INSIGHT INTO WHAT KIND OF MONSTER EPSTEIN WAS. >>ELIE HONIG, THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. I APPRECIATE IT. >>>THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS CRACKING DOWN ON LEGAL IMMIGRATION, WHICH WOULD MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT FOR PEOPLE WHO RELY ON GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE, MEDICAID, SUBSIDIZED HOUSING, MORE DIFFICULT FOR THOSE FOLKS TO GET A GREEN CARD! HERE TO DISCUSS ANDREW GILLHAM, BAKARI SELLERS, CNN COMMENTATOR WHO HAS ENDORSED SENATOR KAMALA HARRIS FOR PRESIDENT, IN CASE THAT COMES UP. MAYOR GILLHAM, I WANT TO START WITH YOU, THESE NEW LEGAL IMMIGRATION RULES. THIS IS FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE HERE IN THE UNITED STATES LEGALLY AND APPLYING FOR A GREEN CARD TO STAY AND WORK LEGALLY, A WHOLE BUNCH OF NEW CRITERIA WHICH WILL MAKE IT HARDER INCLUDING, YOU KNOW, IF THEY HAVE USED PUBLIC BENEFITS, MEDICAID, FOOD STAMPS, HOUSING VOUCHERS, WILL TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THEIR AGE, WEALTH, EDUCATION AND ENGLISH LANGUAGE SKILLS. >>I COME FROM A CULTURALLY DIVERSE STATE, FLORIDA, I’M CONCERNED ABOUT THE APPLICATIONS OF WHAT THIS ADMINISTRATION IS ATTEMPTING. A COUPLE OF THINGS, ONE, THE PRESIDENT APPEARS TO BE VERY VERY CLEAR ABOUT THE INSTRUMENT AT HIS DISPOSAL, TO CREATE THE KIND OF AMERICA HE WANTS. HE HAS TOLD US THE COUNTRY HE DETERMINES WHOLE COUNTRIES, FRANKLY THE MAJORITY PEOPLE THAT ARE BLACK AND BROWN. WE SAW THEM ATTEMPT TO USE THE CENSUS COUNT AS AN INSTRUMENT FOR CREATING, AGAIN, I THINK A WHITER AMERICA. AND I DON’T SAY THAT TO BE TOXIC OR SENSATIONAL. THIS PRESIDENT HAS SAID HE DOESN’T VALUE PEOPLE OF COLOR. THESE ARE THE PEOPLE, PART OF THE FOUNDING AND FOUNDATION OF THIS COUNTRY WERE FOLKS WHO CAME FROM FRANKLY ROUGH CIRCUMSTANCES, CAME FROM THIS COUNTRY, BUILT THIS COUNTRY, SAYING THAT ANGELA IS USED TO USING AND NOW WE’RE TRYING TO TURN OUR BACKS ON THEM. I THINK IT’S AN EMBARRASSMENT. I THINK IT ALSO SHOWS THIS ADMINISTRATION IS INTENT ON CREATING, I THINK, A WHITER AMERICA. >>AND I THINK THE NUMBER THAT PEOPLE POINT TO IS 2042 WHEN FOR THE FIRST TIME WHITE INDIVIDUALS IN THIS COUNTRY WILL NOT BE A MAJORITY OF INDIVIDUALS IN THIS COUNTRY. STEVEN MILLER HAS POINTED TO THAT NUMBER BEFORE. I THINK EVERYBODY WOULD RECOGNIZE THIS HAS STEVEN MILLER’S FINGER PRINTS ALL OVER IT. YOU’RE ATTEMPTING TO SEE THE CURBING OF THE BROWNING OF AMERICA. PEOPLE ARE AFRAID OF DIVERSITY, AND WHAT DONALD TRUMP HAS PLAYED INTO PERFECTLY, WHICH IS WHY HE IS IN THE WHITE HOUSE, THERE IS THIS VIEW BY A LARGE GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS, PEOPLE WILL REPLACE THEM. >>TRY AS THEY MIGHT, THEY CAN’T MAKE AMERICA WHITE AND YOU’RE RIGHT, STECVEN MILLER IS BEHIND THIS. I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SAY THIS, GOING BACK TO OMAROSA’S BOOK, UNHINGED, GOING BACK — >>I NEVER THOUGHT YOU WOULD SAY THAT EITHER.>>MOVING ON. MOVING ON. MAYBE YOU SHOULD CHANGE HER INTRO.>>YOU KNOW, WHEN SHE SAID THAT STEVEN MILLER WAS PROMOTING THESE RACIST POLICIES AND THAT IS WHERE WE ARE.>>SHE WORKED THERE VOLUNTARILY.>>YES, SHE DID, AND SHE WAS COMPLICIT, BUT MOVING ON. NOW WHAT’S NEXT, THE CONGRESSIONAL HISPANIC CAUCUS, THE CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS, ALONG WITH THE CONGRESSIONAL ASIA PACIFIC CAUCUS, TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THEY’RE GOING TO DO, LOOKING AT THE LEGALITIES OF WHAT THEY CAN TAKE AND GO AFTER THIS. THEY ARE TRYING TO GET THE NUMBERS, PRESSING THE WHITE HOUSE AS TO WHAT’S GOING ON AND WHAT THEY CAN DO. >>HERE’S THE THING AND AS MUCH AS I WANT TO PUT THIS ON STEVEN MILLER’S FEET. WE HAVE TO PUT THIS ON THE PRESIDENT. THE BOTTOM LINE IS EVEN BEFORE YOUR GIRL WAS IN THE WHITE HOUSE!>>NOT MY GIRL ANYMORE.>>HE STARTED THIS CAMPAIGN, SAID THIS ON AIR AND SPEECHES AND EVERYTHING ELSE, CALLING MEXICANS DRUG DEALERS AND RAPISTS. HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS TAPPING INTO FROM THE VERY BEGINNING. HE KNEW WHAT WAS TAPPING INTO WHEN HE QUESTIONED BARACK OBAMA’S CITIZENSHIP. I WANT TO SHAKE SOMEBODY BECAUSE I’M LIKE HOW ARE YOU SURPRISED. IT’S ALWAYS BEEN THIS. I REMEMBER BEING ON CNN FOR THE FIRST TIME AND SAYING DONALD TRUMP IS RACIST, WE CAN’T SAY THAT, YES, WE CAN HOW MANY MORE FACTS DO WE NEED. PLEASE HELP ME BECAUSE MY VOICE IS GONE. >>IT’S OKAY. IT STILL SOUNDS SOOTHING AT 6:00 A.M. IN THE MORNING. >>I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THAT. I THINK WHAT PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE AND THERE’S A DIRECT CORRELATION BETWEEN HIS POLICIES AND WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE UNITED STATES CENSUS. FOR THOSE OF US IN THE SOUTH WHERE YOU ARE HAVING AN OPPORTUNITY TO WIN SOME OF THESE SEATS, WHEN YOU GO THROUGH THE BIBLE BELT, THE GEORGIAS, ALABAMAS, MISSISSIPPIS, SOUTH CAROLINAS, YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE PEOPLE AFRAID TO BE COUNTED. THIS IS A CAMPAIGN OF FEAR. >>THERE’S ALWAYS BEEN AN JUNDE COUNT IN THIS PEOPLE, PEOPLE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN AFRAID. JUAQUIN CASTRO SAID TO ME, THIS IS NOT ABOUT LEGAL VERSUS ILLEGAL. THIS IS ABOUT DISCRIMINATION NOW.>>YOU ARE LOOKING AT SOME NUMBERS HERE. >>RIGHT, ONE OF THE THINGS I WAS LOOKING INTO THIS MORNING BECAUSE THIS IS DEALING WITH LEGAL IMMIGRATION, AND YOU SEE IN A LOT OF THESE RAIDS THAT HAVE BEEN DOPNE, PEOPLE ARE LOOKING AT THE DIRECT IMPACT. MORE PEOPLE WILL NOT GO FOR THE SERVICES THEY NEED. A PERFECT EXAMPLE IS WIC. HALF THE BABIES IN THIS COUNTRY.>>WOMEN IN PARTICULAR. >>RELY ON WIC ASSISTANCE, MAYBE IT’S FORMULA, MAYBE IT’S FOOD STAPLES TO GET THEM THROUGH. IN A POLITICO PIECE FROM EARLIER THIS YEAR, 2/3 OF WIC PROVIDERS FROM 18 DIFFERENT STATES NOTICED A DIFFERENCE IN WIC ACCESS IN THE WAKE OF THE NEWS ABOUT POTENTIAL CHANGES TO THE CHARGE RULES. POLITICO WENT THROUGH THE NUMBERS, PUT THIS OUT IN SEPTEMBER, SO THEY WERE ALREADY SEEING AN IMPACT OF PEOPLE AFRAID TO GO TO WIC, IS ESSENTIALLY WHAT THEY WERE SAYING BECAUSE THEY WERE CONCERNED OF THE BLOW BACK EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE HERE LEGALLY. >>NOT SURPRISING. WE SAW WHAT HE DID IN MISSISSIPPI. HE’S LITERALLY TERRORIZING COMMUNITIES, AND I DON’T USE THAT WORD LIGHTLY. IF OUR CHILDREN GO TO SCHOOL WITH THE EXPECTATION THEY GO HOME AND THEIR PARENTS ARE GOING TO BE THERE L, AND THE PARENTS E FORCED TO GO IN AND PREREGISTER SO THEY CAN GO AND DIRECTLY GO AFTER THOSE FAMILIES, THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHEN KIDS ARE AWAY AT SCHOOL, AND KIDS ARE ORPHANED DURING THE DAY, AND NOW WE HAVE THE SAME ADMINISTRATION USING THE INSTRUMENTALTIES OF POWER, THE INSTRUMENT OF GOVERNMENT TO PROSECUTE A POLITICAL AGENDA. >>MORE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO GO INTO THE SHADOWS, AND IT’S GOING TO AFFECT THE ECONOMY. IT’S ABOUT HOUSING VOUCHERS AND SO MUCH MORE. PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE AFRAID TO GO OUT, AND THERE’S GOING TO BE MORE POVERTY. THIS IS GOING TO DIRECTLY AFFECT THE ECONOMY THAT THE PRESIDENT SAYS IS SO OVERWHELMINGLY GREAT.>>THE PRESIDENT SWEARS HE WANTS PEOPLE TO COME HERE LEGALLY. >>I WANT PEOPLE TO COME IN, BUT THEY HAVE TO COME IN LEGALLY. THEY HAVE TO COME IN LEGALLY. WE NEED PEOPLE TO COME INTO OUR COUNTRY, THEY HAVE TO DO IT THROUGH THE SYSTEM. THEY HAVE TO DO IT LEGALLY. WE WANT PEOPLE TO COME IN THROUGH A LEGAL PROCESS. I WANT THEM TO COME INTO THE COUNTRY BUT THEY HAVE TO COME IN LEGALLY. >>HE HAS A PREFERRED GROUP THAT HE CATERS TO. HE WANTS PEOPLE TO COME IN LEGALLY IF THEY’RE RICH AND WHITE. HE’S FINE WITH THAT GROUP OF IMMIGRANTS. WHEN WE’RE TALKING ABOUT HEALTH CARE, HE WANTS THAT AVAILABLE TO THE PRIVILEGED FEW. WHEN WE’RE TALKING ABOUT VOTING, HE WANTS THAT AVAILABLE TO THE PRIVILEGED FEW, WHITE FEW. >>I’M SAYING THERE’S A CONSISTENT PATTERN HERE AND THERE’S NO SECRET, WE DON’T HAVE TO PRETEND WE DON’T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THIS IS. >>MORE SO, WE HAVE TO TAKE THIS TIME TO POINT OUT THE PRESIDENT’S HYPOCRISY, SOMEBODY WHO HAS MADE THEIR CAREER ON BEING A BUSINESSMAN, AND SOMEONE WHO HAS A PROBLEM WITH IMMIGRATION OR RUNNING AFOUL WITH IMMIGRATION LAWS. I THINK IT’S SOMEWHAT RICH FOR HIM TO BE USING UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS THROUGHOUT MAR-A-LAGO AND OTHER ENTERPRISES BE ABLE TO EVADE OR AVOID ANY CONSEQUENCES.>>WE HAVEN’T SEEN THE TAX RETURNS. >>TO ANY CONSEQUENCES FOR THAT, AND NOW HE WANTS TO PERSECUTE PEOPLE. I THINK WE ALL AGREE, THIS IS A CAMPAIGN OF PURE TERROR. THIS IS A CAMPAIGN OF PURE FEAR, AND I HATE TO GO BACK TO THIS BECAUSE IT DOESN’T, I MEAN, IT RINGS HOLLOW NOW BECAUSE DONALD TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT BUT WE HAVE BEEN RAISED TO BELIEVE THIS IS NOT WHAT OUR COUNTRY WAS BUILT UPON, THAT WE ARE BETTER THAN THIS. >>THAT’S NOT TRUE. >>IT DEFINITELY AIN’T TRUE NOW. WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT YOUNG PEOPLE, EVEN IN EL PASO, WE DID A STORY THAT PEOPLE WERE AFRAID TO GO AND IDENTIFY — >>WELL, LET ME SAY, I DON’T KNOW WHO WE IS.>>WHAT WE WERE TAUGHT. I’M JUST SAYING, THAT’S WHAT WE WERE TAUGHT. CAN I GIVE PEOPLE SOMETHING ASPIRATIONAL.>>WE NEVER HAVE BEEN. >>IT’S A CAMPAIGN OF PUREE SCH — PURE RACISM, THE INTERSECTION OF POWER AND PRESENCE.>>NOT JUST RACISM BUT ALSO THE PERSECUTION OF POVERTY. THE ONE THING THAT IS EXTREMELY CLEAR ABOUT THIS ADMINISTRATION IS THEY WANT TO CORRELATE FOLKS WHO NEED ASSISTANCE AS BEING LAZY, NOT WORKING, NOT ACHIEVING THE AMERICAN DREAM AND THE TRUTH IS THAT EVEN WORKING PEOPLE ARE ON THESE ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS. THE LAW REQUIRED PEOPLE TO BE IN PURSUIT OF A JOB IN ORDER TO GET ACCESS TO THESE POVERTY PROGRAMS. >>WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE THIS DISCUSSION IN A MOMENT. BEFORE I GO TO BREAK, I WANT TO LEAVE YOU WITH THIS TWEET, PAUL RODMAN, HE GOES A NOTE ON THE ADMINISTRATION’S NEW PUBLIC CHARGE RULE, DONALD TRUMP’S GRANDFATHER FREDERICK CAME TO THE U.S. AT 16 WITH NO HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA, ALMOST NO MONEY, SPEAKING NO ENGLISH, UNDER THIS RULE HE WOULD HAVE CERTAINLY BEEN REJECTED.>>>SOME DEMOCRATIC HOPEFULS, SEEM TO BE ADOPTING A STRATEGY WE HAVE SEEN FROM NONE OTHER THAN PRESIDENT TRUMP, GOING AFTER A FAMILIAR>>>FORMER VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN’S CAMPAIGN AND SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS TAKING A PAGE FROM THE DONALD TRUMP PLAY BOOK. TAKE A LOOK AT A TARGET FOR THESE TWO CANDIDATES.>>I WANT TO BE REALLY CLEAR, THIS IS A PRESS NARRATIVE, NOT A VOTER NARRATIVE, IF YOU WANT TO LOOK AT THE COVERAGE IN IOWA THIS WEEKEND AND JUXTAPOSE THE LOCAL NEWSPAPER AND NATIONAL COVERAGE, YOU THOUGHT HAVE THOUGHT THE REPORTERS WERE AT TWO DIFFERENT EVENTS. >>ANYBODY HERE KNOW HOW MUCH AMAZON PAID IN TAXES LAST YEAR. NOTHING. I TALK ABOUT THAT ALL THE TIME, AND “THE WASHINGTON POST” IS OWNED BY JEFF BEZOS, DOESN’T WRITE PARTICULARLY GOOD ARTICLES ABOUT ME. I DON’T KNOW WHY. >>BACK WITH US NOW, ANDREW GILLUM, APRIL RYAN, AND BAKARI SELLERS. >>WHO HAS ENDORSED KAMALA HARRIS.>>IN CASE IT COMES UP. >>JUST IN CASE.>>I DON’T THINK SHE WAS IN THE MONTAGE. BUT AT THE MOMENT. >>AT THE MOMENT, APRIL I’M GOING TO LET YOU TACKLE THIS FIRST SINCE YOU’RE A MEMBER OF THE PRESS CORPS. IT IS INTERESTING TO SEE THIS SHIFT AND IT IS A LITTLE BIT OF A DONALD TRUMP PLAYBOOK. >>IT’S UNFORTUNATE. WE HAVE SEEN THE SHIFT TOTALLY IN HOW WE COVER POLITICS, HOW POLITICIANS NOW OFFER THEIR SPIN OR THEIR WAY OF SPEAKING BUT I’M GOING TO SAY THIS, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE ARE LOOKING, THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ARE SICK OF DONALD TRUMP AS THE PRESIDENT IS WATCHING US THIS MORNING TO SEE WHAT WE’RE GOING TO SAY, THEY’RE SICK OF DONALD TRUMP, AND THEY DON’T WANT CANDIDATES BEING DONALD TRUMP BUT AT THE SAME TIME, IT IS A GOOD POINT BECAUSE IT’S A REAL POINT. YES, PAT MYSELF ON THE BACK. WE ARE NOW IN THE ELEMENT OF THE CLAP BACK. WE ARE NOW IN THE ELEMENT OF I CAN HIT YOU BEFORE YOU HIT ME, AND IT’S UNFORTUNATE. BUT I’M GOING TO SAY THIS, WHEN IT COMES TO WHAT WE’RE SEEING, I’D RATHER WITH SIMONE AND WHAT SHE WAS SAYING ABOUT JOE BIDEN, I WOULD RATHER HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO WOULD HAVE A GAFFE THAN WOULD LIE TO NME. SO WE’RE NOW IN THAT ELEMENT VERSUS LIES OF GAFFES, I’M GOING TO STAB YOU BEFORE YOU STAB ME. THIS IS RIDICULOUS. IT’S ABOUT PEOPLE, POLITICS, AND IT’S ABOUT HUMANITY. WE’VE GOT TO GET OFF OF THAT REALITY SHOW MENTALITY. >>AND I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS PART OF HIS STICK. THIS ISN’T NEW FOR HIM. I COULD SEE IF THIS IS SOMETHING HE FOUND THIS NEW I’M GOING TO RAIL AGAINST THE PRESS AND MEDIA. I’M GOING TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020. ONE THING WE CAN SAY ABOUT BERNIE SANDERS THAT IS IMPRESSIVE IS HE HAS BEEN VERY VERY CONSISTENT HIS ENTIRE POLITICAL CAREER. I MEAN, THIS IS THE SAME BERNIE SANDERS. I JUST FUNDAMENTALLY HAVE A PROBLEM OF ATTEMPTING TO ERODE TRUST IN OUR ESTABLISHMENTS. THAT’S WHAT DONALD TRUMP DID VERY WELL, AND WITH THAT STATEMENT THAT BERNIE SANDERS MADE, LITERALLY WE HAVE TO COME BACK AND SAY WITHOUT FACT, HE CA CAS CAS CASTS ASPERSIONS. >>ANYBODY WILL TELL YOU, IT’S BEZOS. >>IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE COVERAGE. THEY HAVE NEVER HEARD HIS NAME MENTIONED NEAR AN ARTICLE. >>THEY ARE GOOD REPORTERS AT “THE WASHINGTON POST.” I WORK WITH MANY OF THEM. >>I WANT TO TRY TO CHANGE THE PERSPECTIVE A LITTLE BIT. I THINK THAT IT IS FAIR TO CRIT CRIT CRITICIZE PRESS COVERAGE THAT YOU DON’T LIKE. THE LEAP THAT BERNIE SANDERS WAS TRYING TO MAKE IN CONNECTING THE DOTS THERE WERE A LITTLE FAR REACHING, YES, BUT I GUESS THAT THE THING I WANT TO SAY IN SIMONE’S DEFENSE, AN ALUM OF THIS NETWORK, IS THAT I THINK IT’S MORE THAN FAIR TO SAY I DON’T APPRECIATE THIS COVERAGE, AND IT’S NOT IN ALIGNMENT WITH WHAT WE HEARD ON THE GROUND. I THINK THAT’S VERY FAIR. AS SOMEONE WHO, YOU KNOW, WAS THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR TO THE CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS, I KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE WHEN THERE ARE REPORTERS WHO THEIR BEAT IS TRYING TO BEAT DOWN YOUR CANDIDATES. THAT’S FRUSTRATING. >>BUT, WHAT’S WRONG WITH ACTUALLY TELLING VOTERS AND VIEWERS OR SHOWING THEM WHAT A CANDIDATE SAYS. IT’S NOT LIKELY MADE UP WHAT JOE BIDEN SAID. HE SAID THAT STUFF.>>I DON’T HAVE AN ISSUE WITH THAT PART. >>I HAVE JUST COME OUT OF A STATEWIDE ELECTION IN THE SENSE THAT IT WAS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT WHEN YOU AN EXPERIENCE ON THE GROUND WITH VOTERS EF SVERY SIN DAY. I THINK THAT WAS THE SHOCK OF MY PRIMARY, THE PRESS WAS COVERING SOMETHING DIFFERENT. >>THEY COVERED THE WHITE CANDIDATES BUT NOT THE BLACK MAN WHO SHOT UP. >>I’M SENSITIVE TO THIS FOR A LOT OF REASONS. THESE FOLKS ARE OUT THERE BUSTING IT EVERY SINGLE DAY TRYING TO GIVE THEIR VERY VERY BEST AND EARNING THEIR WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE, AND THE TRUTH IS THAT DONALD TRUMP CAN SEND OUT A TWEET AND CHANGE THE NEWS CYCLE FOR EVERYBODY. SO THAT MANY TIMES THESE FOLKS FEEL THAT THEIR WORK IS LARGELY IN VAIN AND I THINK WHAT WE HAVE TO DO IS DEMONSTRATE A LITTLE BIT OF DISCIPLINE ABOUT WHAT WE’RE GOING TO CHASE. I WAS PROUD OF CNN NOT PUSHING THE NARRATIVE OF THE CLINTONS BY TRUMP. WE’RE NOT GOING TO CHASE EVERY SINGLE CONSPIRACY THEORY BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT DECIDES HE WANTS TO LOB SOMETHING SO WE’LL BE DISTRACTING BY THE DAMAGE HE’S CAUSING EVERY SINGLE DAY. >>IT’S NOT APPROPRIATE FOR THE CANDIDATES OR PRESIDENT FOR GOING AFTER THE PRESS. THERE’S SOMETHING CALLED FREEDOM OF PRESS. WE WERE PUT IN PLACE BY THE FOUNDING FATHERS, WHEN ALL ELSE FAILED, WHEN WASHINGTON FAILS, AND IT’S FAILING NOW.>>SURE. >>WHEN CHECKS AND BALANCES ARE NOT THERE, WE’RE SUPPOSED TO PUT IN FRONT OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC WHAT’S GOING ON. YOU CAN CRITICIZE THE PRESS. LET ME SAY THIS, BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT DOING THAT, WE ALL GET THINGS WRONG BUT WE GET IT RIGHT MOST OF THE TIME.>>APRIL, THAT’S NOT REAL.>>SO THERE’S THE DIFFERENCE — >>COME ON, APRIL, THERE IS A –>>I’M SENSITIVE ABOUT THAT. >>BECAUSE I’M SAYING THAT, YES, LIKE YOU SHOULD NOT — UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE SHOULD DONALD TRUMP TELL YOU TO SET UP A MEETING WITH THE CBC OR TARGET YOU ENOUGH TO WHERE YOU ARE PERSONALLY SUBJECT TO ANY HARM, THERE IS A VERY BIG DIFFERENCE. >>YOU HAVE BEEN WITH ME, AND I LOVE THAT. >>THERE’S A VERY BIG DIFFERENCE IN WHAT SIMONE WAS SAYING ABOUT THE TYPES OF COVERAGE. THERE’S A VERY BIG DIFFERENCE IN ME CRITICIZING THE TYPES OF COVERAGE THAT ANDREW WAS GETTING WHEN HE WAS GOVERNOR. >>THERE’S HIT COVERAGE AND THERE’S ALSO MAINSTREAM COVERAGE THAT IS REAL. >>AND I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE DIFFERENCE. >>I DO.>>MAINSTREAM BEING LUMPED INTO THAT. >>ONE OF THE THINGS THAT SIMONE WAS HIGHLIGHTING WHICH I AGREE WITH, SIMONE SPUN THAT PERFECTLY IN ONE SENSE IS THAT WE HAVE TO START HIGHLIGHTING, UPLIFTING A LOT OF OUR LOCAL NEWSPAPERS, AND WHAT SIMONE WAS SIMPLY SAYING IS THE PRESS COVERAGE OUT OF IOWA WAS VASTLY DIFFERENT THAN THE PRESS COVERAGE SHE SAW NATIONALLY. THE DES MOINES REGISTER, AND IOWA STARTING LINE ET CETERA MAY HAVE GOTTEN THE STORY RIGHT WHERE OTHERS DID NOT. >>YOU HAVE BEEN PILING ON PRESIDENT TRUMP QUITE A BIT. AND I THINK IT’S AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO GIVE PRAISE TO HIM, HIS CAMPAIGN WEB SITE HAS GONE OFF PLASTIC STRAWS.>>SOMEBODY COME GET ME OFF THIS SET. >>IT’S GOING TO BE GOOD.>>”THE WASHINGTON POST,” HERE ARE SOME PLASTIC STRAWS HERE. >>THEY’RE GOING IN THE TRASH.>>IT GOES BACK TO SARAH PALIN. IS THIS SOMETHING THAT’S SMART.>>THEY DON’T BELIEVE IN GLOBAL WARMING BUT THEY WANT TO STOP STRAWS, WHAT IS THAT ABOUT?>>WHAT’S THIS CAMPAIGN DOING?>>GIVE HIM SOME CANKUDOS. >>I DON’T MIND PAPER STRAWS, I PREFER THE BIODEGRADABLE STRAWS.>>THIS IS FIRST WORLD CONVERSATION RIGHT HERE. CLEARLY — >>ARE YOU CALLING ME AN ELITIST.>>I’M NOT CALLING YOU A LIBERAL ELITE.>>HE ADDED TO IT.>>I’M GOING TO GET DAVIS. >>YOU GUYS GOT TO WATCH ANDREW.>>HE DID JUST GIVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO WEIGH IN. >>THIS IS GOING TO BLOW UP TWITTER.>>HE SUPPORTS PLASTIC STRAWS.>>I THINK YOU’RE IN ALIGNMENT WITH THE PRESIDENT.>>I AM. I WANT TO SAY THAT I THINK, I MEAN, I DON’T LIKE PAPER STRAWS, THAT’S MY PREFERENCE. >>TWEET HIM. >>I RECYCLE JUST FOR EVERYBODY WATCHING.>>EVERYBODY GET BAKARI.>>I BUY BIODEGRADABLE PLASTIC STRAWS IN YOUR LATTÉ. THAT’S WHAT I’M MOVING TOWARD. >>THEY GET SOFT AND TASTE THE FLAVOR OF YOUR DRINK. >>AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE HAVE HOLES IN OUR OZONE. WE ARE SEEING MORE SEVERE STORMS.>>AND WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THE ANTARCTICA, THE ICECAPS ARE MELTING. THE BOTTOM LINE IS, YOU KNOW, WHEN WE GO TO THE BEACHES. I WAS JUST AT THE BEACH LAST WEEK, MY CHILDREN WERE LIKE, NO, WE CAN NOT LEAVE OUR PLASTIC BOTTLES. WE HAVE GOT TO TAKE CARE OF OUR PLANET, AND I DON’T CARE IF IT’S DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN, I’M NOT GOING TO USE THE PLASTIC STRAW. I USE A PAPER STRAW OR METAL STRAW. OR BAMBOO.>>GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THE STRAW ISSUE. >>SHADE. >>THE SENIOR ELECTED OFFICIAL AT THE TABLE.>>YOU HAVEN’T EVEN TAKEN A POSITION. >>YOU BETTER BE CAREFUL ON THIS. >>I LOVE THE ENVIRONMENT. >>YOU SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT A RED TIE. THAT WAS A BIG MOMENT TO BRING A RED TIE. >>IF THE PRESIDENT HAD A COMP HE — COMPREHENSIVE ENVIRONMENTAL SOLUTION, THAT WOULD BE ONE THING. HIS WEB SITE, I KNOW YOU KNOW IT BECAUSE YOU’RE A MEMBER OF THE STRESS. >>WHERE’S THE SHADE. >>SHADE TREE IS GOING RIGHT NOW.>>DOESN’T THE PRESIDENT LIKE PLASTIC STRAWS. >>HE DOES. HE’S GOING AFTER THEM. >>HIS CAMPAIGN IS TRYING TO RAISE MONEY ON KEEPING PLASTIC STRAWS.>>I DON’T KNOW WHY JOHN TOLD US HE HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE HIM DKUDOS. >>THIS IS WHERE BAKARI HAS PLASTIC STRAWS. >>THAT’S NOT WHAT I SAID.>>NOW YOU’RE BACKING OFF.>>WHAT I SAID WAS THAT PAPER WAS NOT MY PREFERENCE, HOWEVER — >>IT’S CUTE, WE SHOULD RUN THE TAPE BACK.>>I FEEL LIKE YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE IT BOTH WAYS.>>THIS STRAW IS THE PRECISE COLOR OF THE PRESIDENT’S SKIN. >>TOO EARLY FOR THAT TYPE OF SHADE. >>I’M GOING TO USE THIS STRAW AS AN EXAMPLE OF SAVING THE PLANET, BUT SAVING HIS CAMPAIGN.>>WE’RE GOING TO GET YOU ON THE RECORD ON THIS AT SOME POINT. >>FRIENDS, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THAT. IT WAS ALL ENLIGHTENING UNTIL I BROUGHT UP STRAWS. >>I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.>>I’M JUST LIKE SO OVER THE CONSPIRACY THEORIES. >>HE’S WRAPPING UP.>>I’M SORRY, WE HAVE TO WRAP.>>ON YOUR TV SHOW, THIS IS SOMETHING YOU’LL NEED TO KNOW HOW TO DO HERE. >>WAIT A MINUTE, WAIT A MINUTE. WE’RE TAKING A QUICK BREAK. WE’RE TAKING A QUICK BREAK >>>PRESIDENT TRUMP’S APPROVAL RATING DOESN’T EVER REALLY SEEM TO MOVE. IT’S BEEN VERY STEADY AND IT’S NEVER HIT 50%, THOUGH. CAN THE ECONOMY BOOST HIM, THEREFORE, TO REELECTION. ONE MAN HAS BEEN CRUNCHING THE NUMBERS. LET’S GET THE FORECAST. >>ONE MAN, ONE POWER. >>SUCH POWERFUL HANDS, YOU BROKE, COMPLETELY SHATTERED OUR SCREEN. SO YOU’RE SITTING AT THE TABLE WITH US TODAY. >>YOU KNOW WHAT, IT’S LOVELY TO BE SITTING. IT’S EARLY IN THE MORNING, SO I PREFER TO BE SITTING. LET’S TALK ABOUT THE PRESIDENT’S APPROVAL RATING. YOU GO BACK TO JANUARY, FEBRUARY, 2017, 44%. YOU GO THEN TO AUGUST OF 2018, 44%. YOU LOOK AT OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS, APRIL THROUGH JUNE IN OUR POLLS, 44% AMONG REGISTERED VOTERS. THIS HAS BEEN VERY VERY STEADY. OF COURSE THE QUESTION IS HOW DOES HE BOOST IT. TAKE A LOOK AT HIS ECONOMIC APPROVAL RATING VERSUS HIS OVERALL APPROVAL RATING AMONG VOTERS. ON THE ECONOMY 53% OF VOTERS APPROVE OF THE JOB HE’S DOING. 44% OVERALL. OKAY, THIS IS THE PATH WAY. THIS 9% OF REGISTERED VOTERS WHO APPROVE ON THE ECONOMY, THESE ARE THE VOTERS THAT I WANT.>>PEOPLE WHO APPROVE ON THE ECONOMY BUT DISAPPROVE OVERALL. WHO ARE THEY? S>>THIS IS THE REAL PROBLEM. THIS IS THE PARTISAN MAKE UP OF EACH OF THE GROUPS. AMONG THE VOTERS THAT APPROVE OVERALL, 88% ARE REPUBLICANS, TAKE A LOOK THE AT THOSE WHO APPROVE ON THE ECONOMY AND DISAPPROVE OVERALL. 22 REPUBLICAN, 66% DEMOCRAT OR LEANING DEMOCRATIC. THIS IS A VERY DEMOCRATIC GROUP. LET’S LOOK AT IDEOLOGY. WE SEE THAT AMONG THAT GROUP, LOOK, APPROVAL OVERALL, 66% ARE CONSERVATIVE BUT JUST 18% APPROVE ON THE ECONOMY DISAPPROVE OVERALL. 53% ARE MODERATE. THIS IS NOT A GROUP THAT TRUMP HAS BEEN GEARING HIS CAMPAIGN TOWARD. HE HAS BEEN GOING RED MEAT, RED MEAT, BUT THESE VOTERS ARE A LOT MORE MODERATE. >>AND ANOTHER GROUP, IS BASED ON RACE, WE KNOW THAT IMPACTS THINGS. >>TAKE A LOOK AT THIS. THIS IS KEY. TRUMP HAS BEEN THROWING RED MEAT TOWARD THE BASE, MAKING STATEMENTS THAT ARE RACIST. APPROVAL OVERALL, 79% ARE WHITE. APPROVAL ON THE ECONOMY, 60% ARE WHITE. AFRICAN-AMERICAN SUBSET, 18% WHO APPROVE ON THE ECONOMY, DISAPPROVE OVERALL IS 18%. THAT’S LARGER THAN ALL VOTERS, WHICH IS 11%. >>IF HE’S LOOKING TO REACH VOTERS HE HAS NOT REACH WHO MIGHT BE INCLINED TO APPROVE ON THE ECONOMY, YOU MIGHT THINK HE WOULD TARGET BLACK VOTERS. >>HE WOULD TARGET BLACK VOTERS AND STOP WITH THE RACIST STATEMENTS, OR HE’S NOT GOING TO REACH BLACK VOTERS. ON EDUCATION, THESE VOTERS ARE BETTER EDUCATED THAN THOSE WHO APPROVE OVER ALL. HE SAID I LOVELY THE POORLY EDUCATED. HE BETTER START LIKING THE LESS EDUCATED. ED MEDIAN AGE, APPROVAL OVERALL, 52 YEARS OLD. THAT’S THE MEDIAN AGE ON THAT GROUP. THEY ARE CONSIDERABLY YOUNG E AT 44 YEARS OLD, THAT MAKES THEM YOUNGER THAN VOTERS OVERALL, AND LET ME POINT OUT ONE LAST THING, IT’S BACK-TO-SCHOOL TIME. TAKE A LOOK AT THIS, YOU KNOW, A OUR MOTHER SHIP, THEY BEGAN YESTERDAY ON AUGUST 12th. THE NEW YORK CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS BEGIN LESS THAN A MONTH FROM NOW. I DON’T LIKE SCHOOL, SO GLAD I DON’T HAVE TO GO BACK. >>DID YOU TAKE MATH OR ARE YOU MAKING THIS UP?>>I THINK HE’S HESITATING ON THAT.>>I DIDN’T LIKE SCHOOL. THANK GOODNESS I GET T>>>A FRIEND OF THE DAYTON KILLER WITH FIREARMS CHARGES, SAYING THE FRIEND PROVIDED THE SHOOTER WITH A BODY ARMOUR AND AMMUNITION FOR THE MASSACRE. CNN’S RYAN YOUNG JOINS US LIVE FROM CHICAGO WITH MORE OF THE DETAILS. RYAN, GOOD MORNING.>>GOOD MORNING, THERE’S AN IMPORTANT NOTE HERE. THEY DON’T BELIEVE HE HAD ANY IDEA THAT HIS FRIEND WAS GOING TO TRY TO DO THIS SHOOTING. THAT WAS CONNOR BETTS THAT DID THE SHOOTING SPREE THAT KILLED NINE PEOPLE AND INJURED 22 OTHERS. WHAT THEY DO BELIEVE IS THAT HE WAS TRYING TO HELP HIM IN TERMS OF REQUIRING THIS TO HIDE EQUIPMENT FROM PARENTS. THERE WAS THIS AMMUNITION DRUM THAT SHOCKED EVERYONE WHEN YOU SEE HOW LARGE IT IS. A HUNDRED ROUNDS OF AMMUNITION, BODY ARMOUR AND A PIECE ON TOP OF THE AR 15 THAT WAS INCLUDED IN ALL OF THIS. HE TELLS FEDERAL INVESTIGATORS, NOT ONLY DID HE LIE ON A FEDERAL FORM, HE WAS INSIDIE THE APARTMENT FOR CONNOR BETS AND REALIZED HE WAS DOING HARD DRUGS AS WELL. THAT’S WHY HE’S FACING 15 YEARS IN FEDERAL PRISON. AS YOU THINK ABOUT THE SITUATION, THAT VIDEO WAS HORRIFYING AS CONNOR BETTS MOVED DOWN THE STREET, SHOOTING ALL THE PEOPLE ALONG THE DAYTON STREET UNTIL THE COPS WERE ABLE TO SURROUND HIM AND TAKE HIM OUT. OF COURSE THE INVESTIGATION CONTINUES. I SHOULD BRING UP ALSO THE FACT THAT YESTERDAY WHEN THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT THIS INVESTIGATION, THEY SAID THEY HAD BEEN ABLE TO CRACK INTO THE PHONE OF CONNOR BETTS. AS OF RIGHT NOW WE DO NOT HAVE A MOTIVE IN THIS CASE. MAYBE GETTING INSIDE THE PHONE, WE’LL GET NEW DETAILS. THIS CHARGE HAS HAPPENED. THE SHOOTER NOT ONLY SHOT A FRIEND OF HIS BUT SHOT AND KILLED HIS SISTER.>>IT’S BEEN NINE DAYS SINCE THAT BRUTAL ATTACK. RYAN YOUNG, THANK YOU FOR THESE NEW DETAILS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THAT.>>>NEW DETAILS IN THE INVESTIGATION OF JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S DEATH. “NEW DAY” CONTINUES RIGHT NOW.>>>I WAS APPALLED TO LEARN OF THE MCC’S FAILURE TO SECURE THIS PRISONER. >>THESE GUARDS WERE SUPPOSED TO CHECK ON EPSTEIN EVERY 30 MINUTES. THEY DID NOT DO THAT FOR SEVERAL HOURS BEFORE HE WAS FOUND DEAD. >>YOU CAN INVESTIGATE ALL YOU WANT AND IT’S THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE MANAGEMENT OF THAT JAIL THAT HE’S NOT HERE PERIOD.>>IF PEOPLE ARE NOT ABLE TO BE SELF-SUFFICIENT, THIS NEGATIVE FACTOR IS GOING TO BEAR HEAVILY AGAINST THEM. >>THE ADMINISTRATION IMPOSING THIS NEW RULE WHICH APPEARS TO FAVOR WEALTHY AND MORE EDUCATED IMMIGR IMMIGRANTS. >>WE SEE THIS AS AN ONGOING EFFORT TO DEMONIZE IMMIGRANT. >>THIS IS “NEW DAY” WITH ALISYN CAMEROTA AND JOHN BERMAN.>>WELCOME TO OUR VIEWERS IN THE UNITED STATES AND ALL AROUND THE WORLD. THIS IS “NEW DAY”, ALISYN IS OFF. ERICA HILL JOINS ME. YOU HAVE ME TONGUE TIED ALREADY THIS MORNING.>>GOOD MORNING.>>NEW DEVELOPMENTS BEHIND THE DEATH OF JEFFREY EPSTEIN. CNN HAS NEW DETAILS OF SERIOUS IRREGULARITIES AT NEW YORK’S MET POLL — METROPOLITAN CORRECTIONAL FACILITY. ONE OF THE PERSON MONITORING EPSTEIN WAS NOT A GUARD.>>THE INVESTIGATION OF EPSTEIN IS NOWHERE CLOSE TO OVER DESPITE HIS DEATH. CNN HAS LEARNED PROSECUTORS ARE EXAMINING THE CONVICTED SEX OFFENDER’S INNER CIRCLE OF ASSOCIATES.>>KARA, TELL US WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED. >>GOOD MORNING, JOHN, ONE OF THE KEY THINGS WE ARE LEARNING IN THIS IS ONE OF THE GUARDS RESPONSIBLE FOR MONITORING JEFFREY EPSTEIN WAS NOT IN FACT A TRAINED CORRECTIONAL OFFICER. NOW, IT’S NOT CLEAR WHAT THAT PERSON’S FULL-TIME JOB IS, THAT PERSON, ONE OF THE TWO GUARDS WHO WAS SUPPOSED TO ENSURE EPSTEIN’S SAFETY WAS NOT TRAINED FOR THAT. A REPRESENTATIVE FOR POLICE IS SAYING THIS IS BECAUSE OF UNDERSTAFFING. BOTH OF THE GUARDS WERE ON OVERTIME SHIFTS. ONE OF THE GUARDS, WE’RE NOT SURE WHICH ONE, WAS SERVING HIS FIFTH OVERTIME SHIFT. THERE WAS A LOT OF PRESSURE ON THE GUARDS. THEY’RE SAYING THERE WAS UNDERSTAFFING, AND EMPLOYEES SAY THIS RELATES TO BUDGET CUTS AND HIRING FREEZES THAT WERE PUT IN PLACE AT START OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. NOW, THOSE HIRING FREEZES WERE LIFTED IN APRIL BUT EMPLOYEES SAYS IT HAS TAKEN ITS TOLL. WE HAVE ALSO LEARNED THERE WAS ANOTHER BREACH IN PROTOCOL WHEN EPSTEIN WAS REMOVED FROM SUICIDE WATCH. HE WAS PUT IN A SPECIAL HOUSING UNIT, AND IN THAT UNIT, GUARDS ARE SUPPOSED TO MONITOR PRISONERS EVERY 30 MINUTES, WAKE THEM UP IF THEY HAVE TO. EPSTEIN HADN’T BEEN CHECKED ON FOR HOURS FRIDAY NIGHT TO SATURDAY MORNING WHEN HE WAS FOUND DEAD IN HIS CELL. ALL OF THIS HAS ANGERED ATTORNEY GENERAL BILL BARR. HERE’S WHAT HE HAD TO SAY YESTERDAY.>>WE WILL GET TO THE BOTTOM OF WHAT HAPPENED AND THERE WILL BE ACCOUNTABILITY. BUT LET ME ASSURE YOU THAT THIS CASE WILL CONTINUE ON AGAINST ANYONE WHO WAS COMPLICIT WITH EPSTEIN, ANY COCONSPIRATORS SHOULD NOT REST EASY. THE VICTIMS DESERVE JUSTICE, AND THEY WILL GET IT.>>AND IN A SIGN THAT THIS INVESTIGATION IS CONTINUING, FBI AGENTS FROM THE NEW YORK FIELD OFFICE WERE IN THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS YESTERDAY. THEY WERE ON SIGHT AT LITTLE ST. JAMES. THAT’S THE ISLAND THAT JEFFREY EPSTEIN OWNS. THEY WERE THERE COLLECTING ADDITIONAL EVIDENCE. JOHN, ERICA.>>KARA, THANK YOU. WE’LL CONTINUE TO FOLLOW THOSE DEVELOPMENTS. >>>A POLICY CHANGE BY THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS TRYING TO DRAMATICALLY LIMIT LEGAL IMMIGRATION INTO THE U.S. THE SO-CALLED PUBLIC CHARGE RULE WOULD MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE HERE LEGALLY BUT RELYING ON SOME FORM OF GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE, MEDICAID, FOOD STAMPS, HOUSING VOUCHERS, SOME OF THE EXAMPLES. IT WOULD MAKE IT HARDER TO GET A GREEN CARD. THE NEW CRITERIA FAVORS WEALTHIER IMMIGRANTS. >>JOHN AVLON, CNN POLITICAL ANALYST, BIANCA GOLODRYGA, I THINK IT’S INTERESTING FOR THE PURCHASE OF THE DISCUSSION. BIANNA, YOU’RE AN IMMIGRANT, YOU CAME FROM RUSSIA, DANA, GRANDCHILD OF IMMIGRANTS. I PRACTICALLY CAME ON THE MAY FLOWER COMPARED TO YOU PEOPLE, AND GREAT GREAT GRANDCHILDREN, THAT’S WHAT COLORS THIS DISCUSSION. WHAT IS THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION REALLY TRYING TO DO HERE, DANA, BECAUSE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT LEGAL IMMIGRANTS AND REALLY RAISING THE BAR. >>I THINK IT’S OBVIOUS IT’S ON ITS FACE, YOU SEE WHAT THEY’RE TRYING TO DO, WHICH IS THE PRESIDENT HAS SAID HE WANTS TO MOVE THE LOCAL IMMIGRATION SYSTEM TO A MERIT BASED SYSTEM, AND WHAT HE MEANS BY THAT IS PEOPLE WHO CAN COME AND HAVE MONEY. PEOPLE WHO CAN COME AND LIVE WITHOUT NEEDING THE ASSISTANCE OF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT. AND THAT IS JUST A VERY DIFFERENT PRACTICE THAN WE HAVE SEEN IN RECENT TIMES. MAYBE NOT HISTORICALLY, THERE HAVE BEEN, YOU KNOW, EBBS AND FLOWS IN HOW THE UNITED STATES TAKES IN IMMIGRANTS BASED ON THE TIMES THAT THEY WERE IN. THIS IS A HUGE DEPARTURE FROM RECENT TIMES, AND IT IS BASICALLY WHAT THE PRESIDENT WANTE WANTED TO DO LEGISLATIVELY, COULDN’T GET THROUGH AS PART OF A LARGER IMMIGRATION PACKAGE WHEN THEY WERE PRETENDING TO HAVE BIPARTISAN DISCUSSIONS. HE’S DOING IT ON HIS OWN. >>AND HE’S ALSO MOVING THE GOAL POST, RIGHT, REMEMBER THE CONVERSATION WENT FROM LEGAL VERSUS ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, AND NOW THIS APPLIES TO LEGAL IMMIGRANTS WHO ARE HERE UTILIZING THE GOVERNMENT SAFETY NET. THERE IS OBVIOUSLY A REASON TO QUESTION THOSE WHO DO ABUSE GOVERNMENT SAFETY NETS, AS TOO MANY U.S. BORN CITIZENS AS WELL. THAT BEING SAID, WE MET SOME OF THE CRITERIA WHEN WE MOVED HERE. WE WERE FROM A WHITE COUNTRY, RUSSIA, EDUCATED PARENTS, THEY HAD A YOUNG CHILD. BUT MY PARENTS DIDN’T SPEAK ENGLISH. WE WERE ALLOWED TO LEAVE WITH $75 A PERSON EACH. WE HAD THE HELP OF THE JEWISH RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM IN THE STATES BUT TO THINK PEOPLE MOVE TO THE COUNTRY WITH A BOAT LOAD OF MONEY TO RESETTLE IS THEORY. YOU HAVE RARE CASES OF PEOPLE COMING HERE WANTING TO RESETTLE THEIR ENTIRE FAMILIES BEING ABLE TO SUPPORT THEMSELVES FULLY. IT’S JUST NOT THE CASE AND SO PEOPLE COME HERE, THEY NEED HELP TO RESETTLE. EVERYONE HAS THESE STORIES WHERE THEY RELY ON GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIES, GOVERNMENT HELP TO GET THEM ON THEIR FEET, GET THEM LANGUAGE SKILLS, GET THEM EMPLOYMENT. I DON’T KNOW WHERE YOU DRAW THE LINE BETWEEN PEOPLE WHO COME HERE AND MAKE USE OF GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS, MAYBE YOU SAY AFTER A YEAR OR TWO OR THREE, WHAT HAVE YOU, IF YOU’RE ON THESE PROGRAMS, WE’LL REEVALUATE. YOU HAVE THIS BLANK STATEMENT, AND PEOPLE CAN’T RELY ON SAFETY NETS, IT’S ABSURD. >>AND IT SHOWS THAT THE ARGUMENT, BETWEEN WE’RE GOING TO OPEN LEGAL IMMIGRATION BUT CRACK DOWN ON LEGAL IMMIGRATION ISN’T TRUE. THAT INSTEAD THERE SOMETIMES TO BE AN ANIMUS AGAINST IMMIGRATION PERIOD. LOOK AT PEOPLE WORKING IN THE WHITE HOUSE TODAY, LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND SAY WHEN AND HOW DID MY PARENTS OR GREAT GRANDPARENTS COME HERE. THEY COME HERE BECAUSE THEY’RE IN ECONOMIC OR POLITICAL DISSD DISTRESS AND THEY WANT TO WORK FOR A BETTER LIFE. THE POEM ON THE STATUTE OF LIBERTIES, GIVE ME YOUR TIRED, YOUR POOR, YEARN TO GO BE FREE, AND WHAT THIS POLICY SAYS IS GTFO.>>WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO DO IS BECAUSE OF THE PRESIDENT’S OWN WORDS. “THE WASHINGTON POST” STORY AND OTHERS WROTE ABOUT THE MEETING INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE WHERE THE PRESIDENT SAID WHY ARE WE HAVING ALL OF THESE PEOPLE FROM S HOLE COUNTRIES COME HERE. TRUMP SUGGESTED THE UNITED STATES SHOULD BRING MORE PEOPLE FROM COUNTRIES SUCH AS NORWAY.>>THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE RULE IS INTENDED TO DO. I DON’T THINK WE SHOULD DANCE AROUND IT. IT IS INTENDED TO KEEP PEOPLE FROM S HOLE COUNTRIES OUT OF AMERICA. AND UNTIL THIS RULE, AND WE’LL SEE IF IT STAYS BECAUSE IT’S ALREADY BEING CHALLENGED LEGALLY, AND IN THE

  1. Don't forget credit score…MOFO Drumpf uses undocumented workers, WTF?!!! Do as I say not as I do. Fuck that! He and his family should be arrested just like those workers and charged several fines for hiring these ppl. I TRULY hope all Dem presidential candidates remind every voter about this fact. He can't talk about Mexicans/Hispanics as awful ppl is he's willing to use them for labor purposes. I would LOVE to see all his ex-employees join the campaign trail for Dems and call Drumpf out.

  2. The Grifter in Chief, whose father helped him out financially until his death in 1999 and tRUmp was at least 50 yrs. old, wants immigrants that can stand on their own two feet to live here. The hypocrisy is mind boggling with this idiot.

  3. I really don't like it much about bring all these foreigners coming over here because we don't know the back round of these people, we have enough killers, rapes and God only knows what else coming over here. But the president shouldn't do it in a mean way with out hurting people feelings, I just don't understand what is going on in these people countries but we don't want that shitch over here wow.

  4. I am constantly cleaning up the beach, mostly of straws, where clubbers throw them overboard after clubbing @ marinas. I even named pile-ups of straws in one area as "straw beach". Turtles & birds are gorged by plastic straws

  5. These numbers are FAKE , PHONY,BULLSHIT,
    just like in 2016, since 2015 you've been pushing LIES about TRUMP, nobody cares what you say & you
    RATTINGS SHOW IT!
    LMFAO!

  6. Evan if the last man on the totem pole is your president would you lock him up as well, if they find out that he had something to do with it. As for this inmate that kill him self, his back ground is killing kids, I mean should he get justiced because the children that he killed where is there justice, who speaks to them.

  7. I vote for a 2 week news blackout on DJT! Just 2 weeks of NOT covering whatever crap he's spewing on twitter. 2 weeks of NOT covering his BS "chopper talk" on the WH lawn … in fact, don't even go to the WH lawn! 2 weeks of NOT covering his hate filled KKK rallies.
    Can you imagine how much other stuff you could cover in the news without all that flotsum?

  8. Between the drugs that they are dying off of and white women going to black men and to other race the White Devil Race will be wiped out soon have they should have never happen they but Satan needed his people for his Kingdom hell so God made the evil white devil man so satan could have his people for his heaven hell

  9. Melania and her parents can go back home then lol this is hilarious of all people to make a claim lets not even start on biggest predator ever J Epstein……..ever notice bill cosby and r kelly dont have the honor to be left alone for hours in prison lmao

  10. White America how can you allow this administration to get away with these racist rules these white folks Hippocrates why should any other race believe them.

  11. White men of America you are cowards when the light shines we see how you are in the dark of history you have killed, raped, lied and much more horrible things to people of color, but when your own a racist president dose things that you know is racist or lies to us you say and do nothing how come. White America how could you like yourselves and why should other groups trust or believe that you are sincere.

  12. Isn't this issue is something the police and or detective would look into. Doesn't the AG has another important responsibility.

  13. a black man might take a dollar or stab a man 4 protection?a brown man might rob a store or shoot a man 2 feed his FAMILY – BUT WHO WANT's & HAS TRYDE 2 BLOW THE WORLD – UP & is always trying to TAKE IT ALL because "their dog told them"

  14. It must be very nice not to pay for media attention, and get so much of it on all different topics. Trump keeps the attention of the media. He's been in the media for 2 1/2 years.

  15. Why was Barr not looking into the conditions of this jail before now. You have people there that are not rich but I guess they don't count. Jails and prisons are short of staff all over the world. He should not have committed crimes. What rich man with moral integrity and values would want young girls. Barr is only doing this so Trump name will not come out. Mr Barr you should be looking into every inmate situation and conditions not just the rich and famous

  16. That Substitute and Supervisor on shift are in for it!…I hope the sacrifice was worth it cause someone's going to have to go down for this like MJ's death!

  17. I had a neighbor ,back in the 80's that was a family from Vietnam, BOAT PEOPLE, they were named, the father became a friend and he shared some info, he had been a music teacher in Vietnam, people with $$$were FIRST to be given access to AMERICA, their $$ had to be given to AMERICA ,FIRST!!!! Same with Indian and that's why India folks were buying motels, mother/father stores, somewhat similar to what turd wants, EXCEPT trump POCKETS ALL FUNDS IN THE NOW!

  18. I'm sorry Angela…you talk too much sis. Pull back a little…you seem to annoy everyone. I think it stops you from being booked and I want to see you get your coins. Stop fussing so much 😘

  19. Trump is not the only racist here !!!! Why are you people going after him and not everyone else who are known racist ? Chang the laws that are unjustice to black people , don't throw America away , fix the problem we have here 🙁

  20. Thank you for posting this, I missed the panel of Angela, April, Andrew & Bakari when they went live so I was hoping someone had recorded it
