tv   CNN Newsroom With Poppy Harlow  CNN  August 16, 2015 3:00pm-4:01pm PDT

3:00 pm
hi, everyone. 6:00 eastern this sunday evening, i'm poppy harlow in new york. the race to the white house and the man leading the gop pack, donald trump. for the very first time tonight, he's releasing details on how he plans to tackle immigration, if elected president. the headline on illegal immigrants, quote, they have to go. here is what else is in the plan. he wants to end birth right citizenship of children of illegal immigrants. he will triple the number of i.c.e. agents. also cut federal grants to so-called sanctuary cities. here he is this morning on "meet the press." >> we have to make a whole new set of standards, and when people come in, they have to -- >> you're going to split up families, deport children? >> we'll keep the families
3:01 pm
together. we have to keep the families together. >> but kick then out? >> they have to go. >> what if they have no place to go. >> we'll work with them. they have to go. we either have a country, or we don't have a country. >> how do you do it? >> look at the cost of what we have right now? >> how do you do it? >> do you think there's tremendous cost for the illegals in here right now? >> of course. >> tremendous. do you think there's tremendous crime being committed by illegals? >> there's definitely evidence that it's happening. >> and you see it all over, just last night. all over. we will do it, and we will expedite it so people can come back in. >> it's still not clear. >> it will work out so well, in four years you'll be interviewing me and you'll be saying, what a great job you've done president trump. >> let's talk more about this. the plan and the race overall for the white house. roger stone is with me again. thank you for being with me, sir. former political adviser to donald trump.
3:02 pm
he left the campaign a week ago. still good friends with mr. trump? >> i'm in the trump movement. >> you heard it here. going through this plan, i laid out some of it. is this a realistic plan? >> this is typically trump. it is something that is part of his management style. he goes to the -- very much like president eisenhower. he slegts really good people and relies on them. he went to senator jeff sessions who has been the leader in the congress for serious immigration reform. he helped him formulate a realistic plan. those who say that you cannot pay for the wall, you'll never get mexico to pay for the wall, we pay mexico $260 million a year in foreign aid. trump could deduct the cost of the wall from their foreign aid payments. if i know trump, he would charge them interest. >> talking about the most controversial part of the plan, ending the birth right citizenship, changing the 14th amendment in this country. >> it's a radical and bold plan.
3:03 pm
we have a major problem. it's going to take a radical and bold solution. for those who say he doesn't have any prescriptions, i would point out the book he wrote in 2011, time to get tough, which is being reissued in an update august 1st. and it's all there. immigration, job creation, china, immigration. he's laid out -- >> you're saying it's radical. donald trump said i will win the hispanic vote, he's said that time and time again. ending the birth right citizen s&p. and the so-called dreamers, that he will send children born of illegal immigrants back to their families. does he risk alienating the hispanic vote? >> i think he hopes to offset that by the fact that he stands for economic boom. a rising tide lifts all boats. >> you're acknowledging it might hurt him a bit there? >> i think he has a chance to win the hispanic vote, because
3:04 pm
the hispanics in this country are hard working people. but there are no jocks and there is no opportunity. consequently i think he's hoping to make an economic pitch to hispanic voters. >> let's turn to foreign policy. fascinating to hear more details from him this morning on how he would deal with iran, and also how he would deal with isis. he told chuck todd this morning on nbc he wants to, quote, knock the hell out of isis. we should take over their oil fields, and the u.s. should have boots on the ground to fight isis. and we overtake the oil fields, run them and get the money from them, not the iraqis. is that the right approach? >> this has been his position for some time. we were told that we would be paid back for the war in iraq. we were not. we never took the oil. now oil is the greatest weapon of isis. they have $1 billion operation to take this country down. >> do the voters have the
3:05 pm
stomach for that? do they have the stomach to go back with boots on the ground? >> i think you have to look at the situation. other than to say, the one thing trump really abhors is the tendency of the obama administration to announce your plans. we're going to start bombing next thursday. >> i hear you on that. but what i asked is, is he betting that the american people are ready to go back in? >> i think that he understands that isis is an existential threat to this country. and they have to be destroyed. he will destroy them. and he'll do what it takes. >> now, you also made the point that he takes issue with the administration saying what they're going to do. >> yes. >> how about the military operations overseas? under a trump presidency? >> i don't think we would telegraph to the enemy what we're going to do so they can counteract it. that's the foolishness of announcing what your military moves are.
3:06 pm
this is what he does. he finds the best people. he downloads all the information, and then elets them do what they do. this is why, like eisenhower, he would be a great president. >> i want to play a comment, something that donald trump said here a few days ago on cnn. let's roll it. >> here's the point. i didn't sit down and draw a plan, that tomorrow i'll go and have a meeting. the next day i'll go and make an offer. i went in and got it. i went in and got turnberry in scotland, one of the great resorts in the world, everybody wanted it. i didn't wait around to do a 14-point plan. i went in and got this. you don't want to hear about the plans, you've got to get in and get it done. >> he told a reporter at the iowa state fair yesterday, you, the press, want these big 14-point plans from me. the voters don't want it. >> actually, i think that's correct. i think presidential politics is about broad themes. he needs to tell you where he's going. but president gingrich was the man of wonkyism, and heavy-duty
3:07 pm
multi-point plans. the voters' eyes start to glaze over. >> how about the six-page plan? >> i think this plan is an outline. it's six pages, that's the point. >> not 60. >> you see exactly where trump stands. the voters aren't going to read a white paper. they want to see the bold strokes. what are the three or four things you're going to do? >> i had someone from the iowa state fair on the air last night. her husband is unemployed. i think a lot of people see the unemployment rate 5.4%, and they feel like things are so much better. for some there's pain out there and the jobs argument is resonating with a lot of them. what's fascinating is the new foxx pole of the republicans. donald trump by the top poll by ben car s, and ted cruz. like jeb bush, scott walker, marco rubio falling, and the outsiders are rising. what's going on? >> i think it has to do with the revulsion with the corrupt political system and rejection
3:08 pm
of career politicians. notice the three candidates moving up. trump moving up. dr. ben carson moving up. carly fiorina, moving up. why? outsiders. not politicians. people who come from a different discipline. that is a business. it is not coincidental that the two greatest republican presidents in my lifetime didn't come from politics. ronald reagan and dwight eisenhower. the people are fed up with the system they perceive to be broken. and they realize that all these other candidates have been gorging on special interests money, that they're unlikely to ever really bring real reform. >> who would donald trump pick as a running mate? >> it might be at this juncture, i would look hard at dr. ben carson and carly fiorina. an african-american -- >> he slammed carly fiorina time and again. >> george bush slammed ronald reagan, too, and he got on the ticket.
3:09 pm
let me add one other. lyndon johnson hated john kennedy, and he got on the ticket. politics is about winning, about inclusi inclusion. i look at those two because they're nonpoliticians. >> did he tell you that? >> no, this is my opinion. but it's obvious from the poll numbers. the american people want bold solutions, from people who aren't part of our feted political system. >> roger stone, a pleasure to have you on. thank you very much. i appreciate it, sir. >> glad to be here. >> also, i want to point you to this. the next republican debate. what will donald trump say, you're only going to find out here on cnn. the next republican debate september the 16th at the ronald reagan library in california, right here on cnn. cnn will also host the first of six democratic debates. also, october 13th, that first of the democratic debate in nevada. still to come this hour, another commercial airliner crashing in the mountains in indonesia. search crews about to head out this hour to crisscross
3:10 pm
13,000-foot mountains in their search and rescue efforts. we'll take you live to the region, next. why should over two hundred years of citi history matter to you? well, because it tells us something powerful about progress: that whether times are good or bad, innovators with great ideas will continue to drive the world forward. as log as they have someone to believe in them. for more than two centuries we've helped progress makers turn their ideas into reality. and the next great idea could be yours. she'll use that educationing to get a job. she'll use that job to buy a home. this is lilly baker. her mom just refinanced their home and is putting an extra $312 a month toward lilly's tuition. lilly is about to take over the world. who's with her?
3:11 pm
buy in. quickenloans/home buy. refi. power. >>mine hurt more.. >>mine stopped hurting faster! neosporin plus pain relief starts relieving pain faster and kills more types of infectious bacteria neosporin plus pain relief kills the germs. fights the pain. use with band-aid brand. no articolors,flavors, sweeteners, preservatives, and no artificial smiles. because clean dressings, taste better. panera. food as it should be. the uncertainties i don't wantof hep c.with or wonder... ...whether i should seek treatment. i am ready. because today there's harvoni. a revolutionary treatment for the most common type of chronic hepatitis c. harvoni is proven to cure up to 99% of patients... ...who've had no prior treatment. it's the one and only cure that's...
3:12 pm pill, once a day for 12 weeks. certain patients... ...can be cured with just 8 weeks of harvoni. with harvoni, there's no interferon and there are no complex regimens. tell your doctor if you have other liver or kidney problems, or other medical conditions. and about all the medicines you take including herbal supplements. harvoni should not be taken with any medicines containing amiodarone, rifampin, or st. john's wort. it also should not be taken with any other medicine that contains sovaldi. side effects may include tiredness and headache. i am ready to put hep c behind me. i am ready to be cured. are you ready? ask your hep c specialist if harvoni is right for you.
3:13 pm
day break in indonesia right now. that's when rescue officials say they're going to try once again to try to pinpoint the wreck of a commercial airliner. the plane, just like this one, vanished from radar in the middle of a very short domestic flight this morning. people on the ground say they saw it crash into the side of a mountain. the tri ghana airline flight.
3:14 pm
what do we know about exactly where the plane went down? i know the mountains are about 13,000 feet high. >> reporter: yeah, it's believed this plane has crashed, that's at least what villagers are saying. they saw this plane crash yesterday afternoon indonesia time. it was about half an hour into its flight from jayapura in indonesia, when it lost contact with air control. no distress signal was sent out, no indication there was anything wrong with the plane. when it left, there was good weather. however, we are hearing from experts that there was thunderstorm activity over this mountainous area. as you say, 12,000 to 13,000 feet high mountains. we know that about an hour ago, search and rescue teams were activated from jayapura airport. they're sending about six aircraft over the area. they think they have pinpointed
3:15 pm
the exact area. and they're going to be surveying that area to try and find the plane, try and find the wreckage, see if there are any survivors. physically getting people out is going to be extremely difficult. we're also hearing, poppy, there are thunderstorms in the area, so that could very well hamper rescue efforts, search efforts as well. >> what about the safety record of this airline? >> reporter: we're hearing that it had an appalling safety record, black listed by the european union. it's had something like 14 incidents. and yeah, it just does not bode well for it. but this is indonesia. this is a developing country. where the air industry, aviation industry is rapidly growing. so you do have these airlines coming on line, if you like, and they're training up pilots, obviously not to the standards
3:16 pm
that we expect in the west. but they are making these flights. and this is the third plane to go missing here in asia in the last 18 months, which is just extraordinary. >> it's astonishing. thank you very much. reporting this evening from hong kong for us. i want to turn to a commercial airline pilot. we showed a picture of this plane, relatively small plane, about a 50-seater, flying in less than ideal conditions. we know there were thunderstorms in the area, shooting in on a very tricky approach through the mountains there. what are the most obvious factors that could have caused this? >> the most obvious is as you mentioned, weather, of course. >> we fly through bad weather. >> that's true. after looking at a google map a fairly recent one, or a satellite photo of it, that airport looks -- it's up at 4,000 feet elevation, if i recall. and by looking at the airport markings, there's an indication, if they're standard airport
3:17 pm
markings, that it has a nonprecision approach, if that at all. which means it doesn't have a glide slope. >> it's not a clear path to land? >> it's not a clear path, but look, these pilots have done it before. the factors and answers to your question could be weather. they could have had to deviate away from the weather and lost their situational awareness. speculation. but -- or mechanical. >> the safety record is very concerning. >> yes. >> so bad, the european union banned this airline from flying in european air space since 2007. 14 incidents since 1992 for an airline with only, you know, 20-odd planes. why would this airline be still flying? >> their criteria versus our faa in the states may have two different things. so that's my only response to that whole scenario. the airplane itself was, we found out is 27 years old.
3:18 pm
that's not a big deal. you know, in dog years, it's really about four years. as long as it's maintained well, as long as the pilots are trained properly. >> the fact that this is the third time you've seen something like this in indonesian air space, among indonesian carriers -- asian carriers, i should say, in the last 18 months. >> very troubling, absolutely. there's a -- it could be right that we've had discussions about the outpacing, growing so fast that they're not setting up their infrastructure, i don't think -- just looking at that one runway, the destination of this particular aircraft, looking at that one runway it didn't look like much. it doesn't mean it couldn't be a safe operation. but if you're going to have a growing air traffic system, you really have to grow your infrastructure, too. >> thank you very much. very tragic. 54 people onboard. we appreciate it. still ahead this hour, a
3:19 pm
historic day for america's favorite pastime. david denson, making history as the first openly gay active player in major league baseball.
3:20 pm
3:21 pm
the drought is affecting all of us. at pg&e we've definitely put a focus on helping our agricultural customers through the drought. when they do an energy efficiency project and save that money they feel it right in their pocket book. it's exciting to help a customer with an energy efficiency project because not only are they saving energy
3:22 pm
but they are saving water. we have a lot of projects at pg&e that can help them with that and that's extremely important while we're in a drought. it's a win for the customer and it's a win for california. together, we're building a better california. it is a history making moment in the world of baseball. for the first time ever, an active player affiliated with a
3:23 pm
major league team has come out as gay publicly. david denson, the 20-year-old first baseman reached out to a local newspaper and told his story saying, quote, talking with my teammates gave me the confidence i needed to come out to them. his teammates said, you're still our teammate, our brother, a baseball player at the end of the day. we've got your back. joining me now to talk about all of this is sid vigler, the co-founder of the website o >> hello. >> he said it was his teammates who gave him the confidence. how big is this in the world of professional sports? >> i think it's a big deal anytime a gay athlete come out of the closet. we're fed the idea that sports is a dick place to come out. and outsports, we've profiled about 200 athletes at every
3:24 pm
level in every sport across america over the last 15 years. and every one of them says the same exact story, that when they come out, their teammates embrace them and continue to love them as their brother or sister. it's incredible statement, because it continues to erode this idea that sports is a homophobic place. >> a big change came in major league baseball a year ago, when bud selig banned harassment, and pointed at ambassador for inclusion. how much do you think that's a part of it? someone at the top, whether it's a roger goodel, or the mlb commissioner coming out and saying, we're not going to take it anymore? >> all of the major professional sport leagues have anti-discrimination policies, now to protect gay people. it wouldn't be a surprise this would happen with major league baseball, in the middle of the season, because major league baseball really has to be
3:25 pm
taken -- it's taken a step beyond the others. appointing billy bean for inclusion was a huge step. now you have somebody who is openly gay, who is a former athlete, going to all of the teams, meeting the players, the managers, the executives. billy as an ambassador for the lgbt community in baseball, i think that really sets major league baseball apart from -- baseball has really put their stamp on billy and billy has delivered. >> you sound optimistic, which is fantastic. but i know it's not always a welcoming environment in every single locker room. just like every office, or every school isn't a welcoming environment. what needs to change going forward? >> more people need to come out. there isn't much more the teams
3:26 pm
and nonlgbt people can do to continue to make videos, and continue to make statements and continue to create policies, but at this point, i believe that lgbt people have to come out in sports at every level, in every locker room. and that is the only way to change, i think, the few corners of the sports world that are still problematic. though i will say the one piece to the puzzle that sets pro sports apart are old white guys in suits making decisions. i think those guys in the front offices of these teams are far more scared of this than are the athletes who are mostly in their 20s. >> syd, thank you so much. appreciate it. what a day in the world of baseball. >> appreciate it. thank you. you're going to want to see this. stumping for trump. this guy, this young man, 10-year-old shane doyle. he is such a fan of donald trump, he got an invite to ride

3:32 pm

3:39 pm
a crashed airliner overseas, the search is resuming this hour, specifically in the province island of papua. it was on a very short domestic flight when ground controllers lost contact with the plane. and people on the ground say they saw the plane crash into the side of a mountain. our aviation analyst is here with us, and inspector general at the u.s. department of transportation. when you look at this plane, 54 people onboard, 27-year-old plane, the very concerning thing is the track record. the safety track record of this airline. 14 incidents since 1992. they only have 20-odd planes. what kind of oversight would be on a plane with such a potspott safety record? >> that's why the european union did ban them and many of the carriers from indonesia, is because they determined that indonesia does not have adequate
3:40 pm
oversight of the safety -- of the safety operations of their carriers and the airlines of the indonesia country. that's part of the problem. and there's a really trifecta of problems. they have problems with training and maintenance. this particular airline has the atrs, 42-seaters, i understand they're allowed to fly them with 50 people. and 72s. those planes pretty much don't even fly in the lower 48 in the united states. we have kind of kicked those to the caribbean. and warmer, better weather because they don't do well in storms, icing, bad weather. so it's really just a trifecta of problems for this carrier. descending in an area was probably not the best landing and radar equipment either. >> thunderstorms were in the area. we don't know what role they may have played. what about the search now? is it possible this may be a search and rescue mission? >> it's possible. i'm remembering a few prior
3:41 pm
crashes that japan airlines 123 crashed in the '80s. several days later there were still survivors. there would have been many more had they been able to get to them faster. the key is getting there quickly. but i imagine this plane was right in line to head into the airport. the problem is, the mountains are 10,000 feet, and the airport, just ten miles in front of that, is at 4,200 feet, and you have to fly high and drop low. my guess is the plane is off the end of the runway but in the mountains. >> when you look at these kind of planes -- not these kind of planes, but the fact that this airline is banned from flying anywhere in european air space, banned by the eu since 2007, and you've seen now three planes disappear and crashing in asia in the last 18 months, it's hard for people to believe it's happened again. >> well, it is. and it's hard for the world to understand why they don't have better equipment all the way around, particularly in radar
3:42 pm
and air traffic control and requiring better onboard equipment. remember after the disappearance of moo lash yeah 370, one of the issues is that indonesian radar, which is allegedly what they tracked mh-37 oh as it left the air space and up and around and into the indian ocean, articles and reports after that disappearance indicated indonesia as much as two-thirds of the radar was not functional anytime. and they turn it off at night. that's really unacceptable in a modern aviation nation. >> no question, real tragedy. 54 people onboard. mary, thank you for that. still to come here, the civil rights movement mourning the loss of an iconic leader. next, we will remember the extraordinary life of julian bond.

3:55 pm
completely by chance he uncovered a first century synagogue. jesus preached in the synagogues of galilee. it's possible that jesus preached here. it's considered ornate. >> this is not for me. this is for millions of people that will come and see these buildings and hopefully they will be able to discover our common roots. >> reporter: the center, the altar known as the magdala stone. >> this is the first time a carving on stone is found out of the synagogue. >> reporter: it may be one of the most important finds in israel. archaeologists uncovered this bowl that jesus may have used to wash his hands before entering the synagogue to pray.

archaeologist shows us the town's purification baths. remarkably the baths still work to this day. they have found coins and are working to restore pottery. >> it is a story about common life. about the materials. >> and about the intersection of judaism and christianity. erin, cnn, israel. >> fascinating to take a look at what this can man. sw thank you for being here. it's fascinating to see what can this excavation tell us about mary magdeline herself? >> it could tell us a whole lot. she is jesus's closest female disciple. she gave to jesus out of her

means. if this was her hometown, perhaps we can discover more about her. perhaps where she was getting her resources from. >> it's amazing to think that they can do that from the little that is left. how do they determine that? >> we don't actually know where did she live? we do have a lot of first century archaeology and that's quite rare. we don't have a lot of first century synagogues for us to look at. there are very small coins that you find referred to in the new testament. we can get a sense of what it was like to walk on these roads, cooking and food preparation. what were the major businesses in the area, the fishing industry. maybe that is the kind of business she was involved in. >> how likely is it that this is the synagogue, a synagogue where jesus preached? >> yeah, well, that's difficult to say. the new testament says he
3:58 pm
preached in this region in galilee, and there is no reason to make something like this up. it's very possible that jesus was here and he touched these things, which would give this place huge religious significance to christians but it also has great historical significance to archaeologists. >> when you look at the woman who supported jesus financially, there has been such intrigue around her because of what people thought she was or wasn't. you know, what does this do to the perception of her? >> yeah, no matter how much it is said, mary magdeline wasn't married to jesus. and this new focus will hopefully shift the focus from this myth that she was married to jesus to the woman that she actually was which is one of the patrons of jesus and who supported him financially. >> how rare is a find like this? >> extremely rare.

back in 1981, i had the american dream, the beautiful wife, the house in the suburbs and a beautiful 6-year-old son. and one day i went to work, kissed my son good-bye and never saw him again. in two weeks i became the parent of a murdered child, and i'll always be the parent of a murdered child. i still have the heartache. i still have the rage. i waited years for justice. i know what it's like doing there waiting for justice, and over those years i learned how to do one thing really well, and that's to catch these bastards and bring them back to justice. i've become a man hunter. i'm out there looking for bad guys.
