tv   Erin Burnett Out Front  CNN  March 18, 2016 4:00pm-5:01pm PDT

4:00 pm
monday night at 8:00 p.m. here on cnn. anderson cooper and i will anchor that special three-hour program. thanks very much for watching. i'm wolf blitzer in "the situation room." "erin burnett outfront" starts right now. next, breaking news. captured alive. the last paris attacker at this hour. an operation still under way. we are live on the scene. plus, mitt romney saying he's voting for ted cruz. donald trump is fighting back. white powder send to his son. hackers allegedly releasing trump's social security number. let's go "outfront." >> good evening, i'm erin burnett. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. outfront tonight, the breaking news. a dangerous situation unfolding at this hour in belgium, the world's most wanted terrorist captured alive.
4:01 pm
injured during a shootout, but alive. he is salah abdeslam, the sole surviving suspect from the paris attacks in which 130 people were murdered. the sound of explosions and gunfire heard throughout the raid this afternoon in brussels. he's been on the run for more than four months, evading capture multiple times. a gritty neighborhood moments away from where he lived before the attacks. belgium police arrested him and four others. some believe to be accomplices after storming their hideout today. you're looking at the scene of the arrest and the man in the image, it's not clear if that's salah abdeslam or an accomplice. president obama called the france president and his wife to congratulate them. days after the november attacks, i traveled there.
4:02 pm
i spoke to salah abdeslam's brother. i asked him if he had a message for him. >> translator: i would tell him to surrender if he has something to do with it. he must face his responsibility. >> of course, he did not surrender, but he was taken alive. we're outfront live tonight. they caught abdeslam, but this operation appears to be far from over? >> reporter: absolutely. both the belgian and the french authorities have been very keen to stress that the operations, the investigations, the danger is not yet over, but it has been an extraordinary sequence of events that has led to salah abdeslam's capture. take a look at this. heavily armed belgian police, a
4:03 pm
daring daytime raid in a brussels's neighborhood. their target, salah abdeslam, believed to be one of the last paris attackers alive. abdeslam had been on the run for more than four months. many believed he'd fled to syria, but yet here he was, cornered in a small apartment just 200 miles from paris. for french president francois hollande, mixed emotions. >> translator: i'm thinking of the victims right now of the attacks of the 13th of november in paris. >> reporter: november 13th, paris. teams of attackers descend on the city armed with heavy weapons. some with suicide belts strapped to their bodies targeting bars, restaurants, a concert hall, and a football stadium. after a bloodbath of terror. 130 people lay dead. most of the attackers french and
4:04 pm
belgian citizens. some with links to terror groups in syria. those not killed by police died in the suicide attacks. investigators believe abdeslam drove three attackers to the concert hall. then they say he took off his suicide belt and fled. his brother abraham stayed behind, blowing himself up outside a paris cafe. hours later, salah abdeslam was stopped driving with friends towards belgium. but not yet identified by police, the men were sent away. the next day salah abdeslam and friends caught on a gas station surveillance camera. then he vanished. the trail gone cold until tuesday and a lucky break. that's when police went to this apartment in brussels. a search for evidence only, thinking the home was empty. police had no idea that abdeslam or other terrorists were inside.
4:05 pm
>> from the moment the door of the flat was opened, at least two persons armed opened fire towards them. in a short but very intense shootout, three of the six officers suffered slight injuries. >> reporter: two others escaped. inside abdeslam's fingerprints and dna, officials say. the manhunt intensified, culminating in today's raid and abdeslam's capture. one of the most wanted men in the world hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the leg. elated authorities tweeted out, we have him. and now they say abdeslam will finally face trial for the paris attacks. what has become clear though, erin, is although the capture after abdeslam might provide some solace, some respite for the families of victims in the paris attack, the reality is it
4:06 pm
appears that the network that was behind the attack was much wider and bigger than anticipated, so the investigations, the raids, they will continue here. erin? >> thank you very much. terror officials have briefed president obama about the ongoing operation. jim sciutto is outfront. i know the president is speaking with officials in belgium and in france. abdeslam may be caught, but the threat apparently far from over? >> no question. the french president said today the network behind paris attacks discovering bigger than expec d ed. beyond that, i met with the french interior minister last week. he said the chances of a successful terror attack in 2016 is, in his words, likely. that is the threat they are facing. they have multiple terror suspects and suspected jihadis that we have here in the u.s. that's a threat they face. they get a lot of help from the u.s., but even with that help, they admit they feel
4:07 pm
overwhelmed. >> all right. thank you very much, jim sciutto. pretty sobering there when you hear after all of that they think it is a deeper network than they thought. outfront now, our terrorism analyst and a former cia operative. i want to just walk everyone through, paul, exactly what happened. i think there's something stunning here that isn't visible at first blush. when you look at how this all started that night in paris, they fled across the border there to brussels. that's the last time salah abdeslam was scene. last time he's seen he continues on to brussels. in brussels, this is what we know. the heart of the arabic district, abdeslam's apartment, where he was captured -- not captured, but where he escaped earlier this week in the raid on
4:08 pm
tuesday. then in mullenbeck where his family lived and where they caught him today an eight-minute walk. eight minutes from where he was in a small neighborhood and it took him four months to find him. >> extraordinary, isn't it? spending more time in that southwestern district where he appears to have gone to ground. they found his fingerprints there, his dna there, other indications he had been there very recently. that apartment in the ed from - southwestern part of brussels whi whilest another of the terrorists was providing covering fire. escape with another suspect through the roofs and eventually, according to our colleagues, the belgium state media, he put a phone call through to a radical associate who was living around this area. they wanted shelter, but that
4:09 pm
guy was being monitored by belgian security services. that's how they were able to find out he was there very recently. >> this is a crucial point. when you're thinking about this, you're looking at an eight-minute walk from where he was captured today alive and the last place he lived in brussels. that means a lot of people who you have seen him, known he was there. i mean, it's pretty stunning. >> it's stunning, i think it is, that he got away for four months. this is a huge manhunt. cooperation around the world. a lot of these north african communities around the world are tight knit and don't cooperate with authorities. the fact that these communities are willing to protect these people and the fact they can arm with automatic weapons and
4:10 pm
kalashnikovs and the discipline they stayed off the phone. that's when they were under attack themselves and on the run, so it's not a surprise they made a mistake. just the four months that surprises me. >> paul, it is incredible. when i spoke to mohammad abdeslam, the third brother, two of them involved in the paris attacks. one of them not involved at all living in this apartment in brussels. i asked him how close the brothers were. here's a quick clip of what he had to say. >> many people find it hard to understand. they say you and your brothers are so close in age. you lived together. you're close. they say how could you not have known something? >> translator: i think that people do not quite understand what we've been through. but my brother, who participated in this terrorist act, must have been probably psychologically
4:11 pm
ready to commit such an act. these are not regular people. >> what fascinates me is he says he was psychologically ready and then he continued to say that salah could go out in a blaze of glory and yet salah was captured alive. he didn't want to die. >> this is someone with a strong surviv surviv survival instinct. he was meant to be a suicide bomber on the night of the paris attacks, but he chickened out of that. friends brought him back to brussels. he went to ground. on tuesday, he's not the guy staying in the apartment. he's the one fleeing from police. a lot of these other guys, they really want to die. they want to go to where they think will be paradise. >> he doesn't fit with the
4:12 pm
profile at all. you heard what jim sciutto said. they think there's a lot more here in terms of the network, there could be more planning, it is very likely there could be another successful terrorist attack in 2016. that's a terrifying thing considering the level of surveillance around the world, particularly in france and belgium. >> i think they're right. i think we'll see an attack in 2016. there are a lot of networks out there. the assumption is we or the europeans are going to be attacked or we both are. we are the targets, especially with the islamic state losing territory. under constant attack, they're going to lash out against us in the west. >> all right. thank you very much. outfront next, donald trump speaking live tonight at a major rally in utah as mitt romney reveals he's voting for cruz.
4:13 pm
plus, president obama slamming donald trump every single chance he gets. does that actually help the frontrunner? this is what donald trump said the last time he addressed a large jewish audience. >> you're not going to support me because i don't want your money. isn't it crazy? >> yes, he said that. will he be more politically correct in a major speech on monday? allergies with nasal congestion?

4:17 pm
breaking news. mitt romney tonight saying he'll vote for ted cruz. he is, quote, repulsed by trump. moments ago donald trump firing back on twitter saying failed presidential candidate mitt romney, the man who choked and let us all down, is now endorsing lying ted cruz. this is good for me. l
4:18 pm
donald trump will be speaking live in a short time from now. he is going to be in salt lake city. sara murray is outfront. obviously back in full force today, fighting back against mitt romney. >> reporter: that's right, erin. it'll be interesting to see how he navigates this issue when he is here in salt lake city. this is not a state where donald trump is favored to win. a large swath of the mormon community doesn't have a very high opinion of him. if he comes out swinging against mitt romney, it'll be interesting to see how he reacts. the other thing that's interesting about this romney comment is really the person it is most damaging here in this state is john kasich. john kasich is trying to peel away support from ted cruz, trying to ensure that ted cruz doesn't get over the 50% mark here in utah. if he does, he gets all of the delegates. romney wants to block trump. he's hoping that'll boost cruz here in the state and get him over this 50% mark and create another baairrier to try to sto trump.
4:19 pm
>> outfront now, sam clovis and tim miller. mitt romney announcing he's going to vote for ted cruz. would this hurt trump? >> i don't think so. maybe it might have some impact in utah. it may have some there. we're out there campaigning. we don't leave anything to chance. we want to do as much as we can. i think if you take a look at what governor romney has mentioned and what he's done i can't tell you the hundreds and hundreds of e-mails and phone messages and text messages all of us have received about how this is really galvanized the support for donald trump. i just got off the phone with someone you would know that wanted to let me know in no uncertain terms that what romney
4:20 pm
is talking about and what people are proposing for the convention is not going to happen. this is somebody that knows that for a fact. we have a bunch of sore losers and it really comes down to that. >> can you tell us who you were talking to? >> no. >> is it a political person? >> no, not at all. it's a person in the know. i feel pretty good about it. they're a credible source. >> a credible source -- >> i'm not going to tell you. not a chance. >> not be a contested convention is what you're saying? >> that's correct. >> tim, what do you have to say to that? no chance of a contested convention. >> i don't know what sam's secret source is, so it is hard to weigh in on that. let me tell you this. only half of the electorate has voted. there are half of the states left that need the opportunity to weigh in on who should represent this party. i think what mitt romney has done and what i admire him for is make a moral case for why a
4:21 pm
conservative party, a party that believes in the constitution and freedom of speech and religion, should not support donald trump. i think that you'll see donald trump suffer another loss in utah on tuesday and then we'll move ahead to wisconsin a few weeks from now, which is going to be another really tough state for donald trump. basically, we have a long fight ahead of us, and i think it remains to be seen exactly how that will shake out in cleveland. >> sam, you talked earlier this morning on cnn. you said the elites of the party -- you were referring to people like mitt romney -- were treating trump voters like they're, quote/unquote, stupid. why do you think that? >> i think every time you come out and say your vote has been wasted this is to tell those people, all the people who voted for donald trump and all the people who are going to vote for donald trump, that your vote really is a bad idea because
4:22 pm
he's not a conservative. he's not going to represent the republican party. >> that's true. >> i want to ask every republican, every conservative out there -- i want you to understand. list down the principles of conservativism and tell me how well have you done. how well have you done in getting to a smaller government? you haven't. how well have you done with fiscal responsibility? look at this last budget deal. you haven't. have you protected the military? no. have you protected the cultural values of this country? no. i want to hear what the conservatives have to say about protecting conservative principles. i don't hear any of that. >> i don't know what sam is talking about here. >> you don't because you're not a conservative. >> sam you used to be a conservative. >> i am a conservative. i know all about it. you don't. >> since then you have abandoned
4:23 pm
the conservatives. >> i have not. >> let's go through the issues. >> acknowledge the principles of conservatism. >> let's go through the issues you mentioned. when it comes to supporting people in washington, d.c. who are big spenders, donald trump has supported all of them. >> what have you done about big government? mitt romney is a big government politician. >> he was for partial birth abortion. >> what have you done about it? >> what have i done? i've been fighting for conservative candidates my entire life. >> you've really been effective. >> we have a republican house and a republican senate. >> i will say this. i will say this. the government did get bigger under the last republican administration in terms of the size of government and entitlements that were added. tim, you don't want donald trump to win, so you think people
4:24 pm
would be getting together. all they agree on is they don't want donald trump and they agree on nothing more. john kasich, for example, putting out a statement about mitt romney's voting for ted cruz today. mitt romney is campaigning with john kasich. john kasich said the establishment has gotten it wrong this entire primary. it's unfortunate to see mitt romney is getting bad political advice. this is the old establishment again trying to gain the political system. okay. romney and kasich both want to stop trump tim and this is what we get today. they're just slamming each other. isn't that the whole problem with your argument? >> i don't really know what john kasich's campaign is talking about there. trying to stop donald trump and supporting a candidate who is best capable to do that in utah, that's ted cruz. i think that makes sense. if you want to look at what's happened to this party, we have 1/3 of voters, even more in certain states on tuesday, went out to vote and they were asked if the election is held between hillary clinton and donald trump, would you consider a
4:25 pm
third party and they said yes. 1/3 to 40% of republicans. this is not the establishment. this is not people in smoke-filled rooms in washington. these are conservative rankin file voters who are disgusted that we would nominate somebody who is not a conservative and who has done nothing to make you believe he would be a president who would respect the constitution and republican values. >> sam, on this point, are you going to go ahead -- you said that you have heard from a source that there will be no brokered contested open convention that you trust, but you are a co-chair of the donald trump campaign. >> right. >> john kasich is hiring lawyers to prepare for what he believes is going to be a contested convention. are you going to hire lawyers and prepare for that? >> we'll be totally prepared. the rules are the rules. i said that this morning 13 hours ago when i was on this network. and i think the rules are the rules. as long as people follow the rules, everybody is going to be
4:26 pm
fine. if people come in and start to change the rules and try to jimmy the rules and try to steal the nomination from someone who has gained 1237 delegates when they go to the convention, that's not going to work. i really think there are people in this party who truly are trying to figure out how to get the rules changed so no matter how many delegates we have, even if it is over the 1236 we need, they'll try to take this nomination away from donald j. trump. >> thank you very much. outfront next, president obama's attacks on donald trump, they are heating up. are they only helping the frontrunner? tonight the attacks on trump getting personal. his family a target. our report. you can't predict... the market. but at t. rowe price, we can help guide your investments through good times and bad. for over 75 years, our clients have relied on us to bring our best thinking to their investments so in a variety of market conditions...

tonight, can president obama stop donald trump? the president is jumping into the fray. the stakes are high not only for the frontrunners, but for the president's legacy. jeff zeleny is outfront.
4:31 pm
>> reporter: he's not on the ballot, but his legacy is on the line. and president obama is gearing up for a campaign of his own against donald trump, feeling little sympathy for the plight of the gop. >> this is the guy, remember, who was sure that i was born in kenya. [ laughter ] >> who just wouldn't let it go. and all this same republican establishment, they weren't saying nothing. as long as it was directed at me, they were fine with it. >> reporter: the president is still officially on the sidelines of the democratic primary fight, even though his preference for hillary clinton is one of the worst kept secrets in washington, but he's all in to stop trump. his tone is shifting if dismissive -- >> i think they recognize that being president is a serious job. it's not hosting a talk show or
4:32 pm
a reality show. >> reporter: -- to dead serious. >> i know i'm not the only one in this room who may be a little more than dismayed on what's happening on the campaign trail lately. we have heard vulgar and divisive rhetoric aimed at americans and people who don't look like us or pray like us. >> say what you will about mr. trump. he would bring some change to the white house. >> reporter: now within reach of the president, which obama is increasingly working against. >> during primaries, people vent and they express themselves. seems like entertainment, but as you get closer, reality has a way of intruding. >> reporter: the president is gradually expressing himself. >> i think i will have a democratic successor. >> reporter: the question is
4:33 pm
whether voters are looking for change just as they were eight years ago when he swept into office. question is now how helpful can he be. not exactly the most popular sitting president, but this is how democrats believe he can be helpful, building that obama coalition, that diverse collection of young voters, hispanic voters, african-american voters. they have to turn out in record numbers like they did for him in 08 and 2012. that would help whoever the democratic nominee, particularly for hillary clinton, who is not exactly been drawing huge crowds of enthusiasenthusiastic suppor there. >> thank you. outfront now, our political commentator and ta donald trump supporter. right there at the end of jeff zeleny's report you heard the
4:34 pm
cheers. it is a good thing to remind people that president obama is the only other politician in modern times who can draw crowds and inspire like donald trump. in 2008 he got the crowds. he inspired and motivated millions. he's now slamming donald trump. could it hurt trump? >> i don't think it can necessarily hurt trump. in 2008, president obama was a worldwide cultural phenomena. he swept across the globe. he was handsome, charming, sophisticated, gracious. as we say in the african-american community, he was very, very cool. he was a cultural phenomena much like michael jackson's "thriller" in 1982. after that thriller, michael could never achieve that pinnacle of success and the enthusiasm for president obama has dissipated a little bit. hillary herself is boring. she didn't arouse passion or
4:35 pm
elicit excitement. it was a given. everybody expected him to endorse her anyway. >> fair. >> it is not big deal for him to come out on her behalf. he said things i heard on the clip where he said that mr. trump used vulgarity and that he alluded to vulgarity. i remember them asking mr. obama, mr. president, they said do you have a bucket list since this is your last rodeo as president. he said no, i don't have a bucket list, but i have a list that rhymes with bucket. now, you use your imagination. mr. obama said it and we all heard it. >> ma lrimaria? >> there's no comparison. president obama said that at a white house dinner during a roast. trump would never allude to
4:36 pm
anything. he would actually say it the way he has these past few months. pastor, let me finish. i didn't interrupt you. pastor, i did not interrupt you. >> let maria finish, mr. pastor. >> my bad. >> let's remember our manners. thank you. secondly, yes, trump has been vulgar. he doesn't just allude to vulgarity. he says the words. look, absolutely president obama will help hillary clinton. we all talk about she needs, if she's going to be the nominee, the obama coalition to come out for her in record numbers. who better to mobilize and energize and excite the obama coalition than obama himself? he is incredibly popular with african-americans and latinos, with women, with the lgbt community. with everyone who knows that having donald trump at the helm of the president of the united states is an incredibly scary thought. >> donald trump is the one,
4:37 pm
let's just remember, who forced president obama to release his birth certificate. he seriously and personally dislikes donald trump. he has been mocking donald trump ever since this birther issue started. here's a clip. >> just recently in an episode of "celebrity apprentice," you didn't blame little john or meat loaf. you fired gary busey. these are the kind of decisions that would keep me up at night. >> i have a lot of faith in the american people, and i think they recognize that being president is a serious job. it's not hosting a talk show or a reality show. >> pastor, when you look at it this way, you look at his approval ratings, okay, they could be better, but it is 51% overall.
4:38 pm
that's democrats and republicans. it's the highest it's been for barack obama in three years. do you believe he is a formidable adversary against donald trump? >> if he was running for a third term, he would be a formidable adversary. what people file to release is donald trump did not introduce the birther issue. it came from hillary clinton's camp when she was running against president obama. she played the race card when she was running against him as well. donald trump picked up on what hillary clinton introduced in her 2012 campaign against mr. obama. we selectively have amnesia as far as that is concerned. it doesn't matter. she introduced it. >> she did not. >> there is something about these two men, maria, that is kind of amazing about how much they have in common. both of them would say that is a horrible thing. they both battled and are battling in the case of donald trump and hillary clinton. they love their crowds.
4:39 pm
they attract crowds. they know how to play to those crowds. >> absolutely. yep. >> i hope you'll accept my apology. i just want to give you the opportunity. is there anybody you would like to apologize to right now yourself? >> no. >> no? no? no one to apologize at all. >> no, no apology. >> i don't text. i e-mail. i still have a blackberry because i -- the one old guy there. look at him. he's my age. he's my age. >> maria, there are moments where they both can be rather likable and they can both have a sense of humor. >> if you compare likability between president obama and donald trump, president obama just wipes the floor with him. but i will say this. if hillary clinton is the nominee and trump is the nominee, it is going to be an
4:40 pm
incredibly ugly divisive. she's going to need all the help she can get. having president obama in her corner will be a formidable way to dampen and combat all that incredibly divisive rhetoric. given the fact she is very popular with the obama coalition, i think it will be a winning combination. outfront next, donald trump preparing for a major foreign policy speech. will he sound like a commander and chief? and the fbi investigating tonight a suspicious letter with white powder sent to donald trump's son. the latest on that next. game of. i wanted to put the odds in my favor. so my doctor told me about botox®, an fda-approved treatment that significantly reduces headache days for adults with chronic migraine, 15 or more headache days a month, each lasting 4 hours or more. it's shown to prevent headaches and migraines before they start. and it's injected by my doctor once every 12 weeks.

4:45 pm
at what he had to say. >> i'm a negotiator like you folks. is there anybody who doesn't negotiate deals in this room? [ laughter ] >> perhaps more than any room i've ever spoken to. you're not going to support me because i don't want your money. isn't it crazy? >> will trump strike a more serious tone on monday? >> reporter: donald trump facing his biggest test on israel yet. >> we have a right to silence him. >> reporter: as he prepares to deliver a major speech, the powerful pro-israel lobby on monday, the criticism of trump is only intensifying. one big issue, his posture on israeli-palestinian peace talks. >> i'm pro-israel. but i would like to at least have the other side think i'm somewhat neutral as to them so we can maybe get a deal done. maybe we can get a deal. i think it is probably the toughest negotiation of all
4:46 pm
time, but maybe we can get a deal done. >> reporter: that has only give fodder to his rivals, mainly texas senator ted cruz. >> on israel, donald has said he wants to be neutral between israel and the palestinians. as president, i will not be neutral. we need a president who understands the national security interests of this country. >> reporter: in his speech monday, trump plans to make the case he is the most pro-israel candidate seeking the nomination. >> i'm making a very major speech in front of a very poe t important group of people. >> reporter: 300 people expected to protest outside the meeting in washington. their target -- trump and what they believe is hateful rhetoric espoused by the businessman. trump allies are pushing back. in a tweet, seen yore anioenior
