tv   CNN Newsroom With Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul  CNN  June 2, 2018 7:00am-8:00am PDT

7:00 am
otherwise, like the dentist, let him clean your teeth. you can catch up with us on cnn go and on demand. check out the book is out "clowns to the left of me. jokers to the right." see you next week. good morning, everyone. it's saturday, june 2nd. i'm christi paul. >> and i'm victor blackwell. president trump is at camp david right now, preparing for an unprecedented meeting with north korea's dictator, just ten days away. >> the president has most of his family with him. one person not at presidential retreat this weekend, the first lady, not seen in 23 days now. jumping around the operating room, caught fire online. now nearly 100 women are complaining about this so-called dancing doctor. >> if traffic is not crazy enough for the so-called look
7:01 am
out for this plane. you're in the cnn newsroom. president trump is at camp david prepping for his summit with north korean leader kim jong-un. >> joining him, jared kushner, ivanka trump, donald trump jr., tiffany trump. staying behind at the white house it seems, first lady melania trump. the public hasn't seen her in 23 days, many wondering where she might be. north korean summit restart is getting mixed reactions from ally. >> live from singapore where it's set to take place in a little more than a week. we're at the white house where we start now with ryan nobles. ryan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, christi. this summit that was on and then off is back on again. lengthy meeting with kim
7:02 am
on-choi, the president emerging from that meeting, announcing that the summit planned for june 12th would go forward as planned, despite the president himself saying in a letter to kim jong-un not too long ago that the summit wasn't going to go forward. and the president clearly taking a different tone as it relates to north korea. remember, a few months ago where the president described kim jong-un as little rocket man and was talking about being -- or talking about the size of his nuclear button. now the president saying that things are going along very nicely with north korea and, as it relates to maximum pressure, well, at this point he doesn't even want to talk about that. take a listen. >> it's going to remain what it is now. i don't even want to use the term maximum pressure anymore because i don't want to use that term. because we're getting along. you see the relationship. we're getting along. it's not a question of maximum pressure. it's staying essentially the way it is. at some point hopefully for the good of millions of people a deal will be worked out.
7:03 am
>> now there were many in the president's administration. some prominent leaders of congress that were cautioning the president not to forge ahead with this meeting, particularly because north korea didn't seem to be coming to the table with all that much. the president was insistent. one of the reasons he was able to get this done is dialing back the expectations in a big way. no grand bargain expected to be struck at this summit on june 12th. instead the president describing it as a get to know each other meeting. the president at camp david. he is there with many members of his family, including his son, donald trump jr., son-in-law jared kushner and tiffany trump, and his daughter, ivanka trump and son-in-law jared kushner. not there, melania trump, who hasn't been seen in 23 days. >> what do you know about reports that there's early talks about a summit with vladimir putin? >> "the wall street journal" reporting this, that the trump team in talks with the kremlin about getting together with
7:04 am
vladimir putin. they say this is the early stages in which the negotiation is being led by john huntsman. he was at the white house yesterday. the president and vladimir putin have only met in person on two different occasions. if the summit takes place, it would be against the back drop of this investigation into russia's conduct during the 2016 election and whether or not the trump campaign was involved in that conduct at all. at this point, the white house telling t"the wall street journal" if it happens they're not even going to begin the serious planning of that summit until after everything is cleared with the north korean summit. long way to go still. >> ryan nobles for us there. thank you, ryan. >> let's go live to singapore now where this meeting between president trump and kim jong-un is scheduled to happen in ten days. correspondent will ripley is there. let's start with the reporting from cnn's pentagon correspondent barbara starr and what you saw several days ago, those explosions at the nuclear
7:05 am
test site really weren't potentially what north korea wanted the world to believe that they actually were, that this detonation really didn't cause as much damage as they wanted people to believe. >> reporter: the thing is, victor, when we were on the ground we stated repeatedly that we had no way to verify what the north koreans were telling us, that the tunnels were irreparably destroyed. the entrances could be bull dozed. they blew up all the log cabins on the site. those could easily be rebuilt. there was a lingering question that officials on site couldn't answer. was this actually the closer of punggye-ri. there are a lot of experts that disagree, that don't feel that looking at sighs milk data and whatnot that the explosions went deep enough into those tunnels
7:06 am
to destroy them. only what we were seeing on the surface, large explosions and describing everything as it unfolded. >> will ripley for us in singapore. thank you, will. >> this isn't the first time north korea has made promises to the u.s. let's add some context to what's unfolding this morning with cnn presidential historian. thank you for being here. japan defense minister this morning saying north korea should not be rewarded for agreeing to talks. in light of how north korea has behaved in the past i believe it's important not to reward north korea solely for agreeing to have a dialogue. to that, you say what? >> well, look, the objective here is to dial down the pressure and anxiety and feeling of crisis that was in the region. let's not forget how this all started. it started with the north koreans testing missiles, which
7:07 am
they said could reach guam but potentially hawaii. so what's happening here, we've moved from a situation where the north koreans are threatening their neighbors in the united states to a situation where they appear now to want to normalize relations with washington and perhaps even sign a peace treaty with south korea. so we have moved many, many steps in a very positive direction. the japanese, understandably, have all kinds of concerns about the future of the strategic architecture of their region. they don't want the united states to pull out. they want the united states to stay strong with regard to china because the japanese are concerned about chinese. the chinese military posture in the region. so, those are the issues for the japanese. they just don't want the u.s. government to be naive and to say my goodness, we can reach an agreement and can get out of the region. i think that's behind the japanese statement. >> you mentioned china. defense secretary mattis is
7:08 am
accusing beijing of, quote, intimidation and coercion in the south china sea right now. is that, based on what you were saying, a way of reassuring allies? >> christi, i don't know for sure. my sense of what's going on here is that so much has happened so quickly in the relationship, or at least the tentative relationship between washington and pyongyang that the united states is, i think, very sensibly sending signals to its regional allies in the area saying, look, our basic policy hasn't changed. and secretary mattis is reminding the japanese and the singaporeans and the thai and even the south koreans that our commitment to making sure there's freedom of navigation in the south china sea hasn't changed. china is a very important player in our conversation with north korea. we need china to be helpful to us. we don't want the japanese and
7:09 am
the filipinos to think we no longer have their back. >> planning some sort of summit between president trump and president putin most likely would discuss syria, ukraine, nuclear arms control. how does president trump balance that when simultaneously there's this investigation by mueller? >> christi, if there were a normal presidency, it would make perfect sense for the president of the united states, after meeting with the north korean dictator, to talk to all of the regional players, and russia is a regional player. let's not forget that russia is a pacific power. it would make perfect sense for the united states to tell the russian leader this is what we're trying to do with north korea, these are the steps we're doing to help achieve denuclearization. these are the reasons we may be able to watch north korea sign a peace agreement with south korea. because of the backdrop of the
7:10 am
mueller investigation and because the u.s. president has not been straightforward about the russia hacking, that makes it all more complicated politically. it is a good idea for washington to send signals to moscow about what washington intends to do in the north pacific. >> the president, when you look at the president and north korea and the history there, president trump specifically, we've heard fire and fury. we're heard about the size of nuclear buttons that can be pushed, whatnot. and the president now saying, quote, it's getting to know you meeting, referring to the summit. getting to know you meeting plus. do you see a shift in the way the president is going to be dealing with north korea, other than what he has said in the past? is that part of his talent to negotiating? >> christi, what's very exciting and interesting for those of us observing this administration is to see the extent to which the president is a strategist.
7:11 am
up till now it's been very hard to believe that he really has a sense of international politics. he sees everything as a one-on-one transaction with another state. bolton and vice president pence apparently were not participants in the big meeting yesterday. that's really important. both of them had sent the wrong kind of signal to pyongyang. is the president working closely with mattis and pompeo, drafting a strategy for making the north pacific a more peaceful place? i don't know, but that seems to be the direction that the rhetoric is leading us in. i think that would be the right direction for both the united states and south korea. >> all right. tim naftali, always appreciate your perspective, sir. thank you. >> thank you, christi. >> president trump is at camp david with the first family today. the first lady is staying at the white house. why hasn't melania trump been seen in public for 23 days now? we'll talk about that. a dangerous wildfire forcing
7:12 am
hundreds of families out of their homes. officials say a milder winter may be partially to blame here. and we're hearing from family and friends of the uber driver accused of killing one of its passengers. >> very sweet. i wouldn't know him to be negative to anybody. >> a family man. he has two beautiful children. he was doing uber because he worked two or three jobs to take care of his wife and kids. it can grow out of control, disrupting business and taking on a life of its own. its multi-cloud complexity creating friction... and slowing innovation. with software-defined solutions, like hpe oneview, you can tame the it monster. hewlett packard enterprise. less complexity. more visibility. if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis,

7:17 am
white house with my family, feeling great and working hard. as huffington post laura bassert explains that may have caused more speculation. >> all she needs to do is step outside of the white house, show her face, to prove she's fine. instead she gives off this tweet which doesn't sound like melania at all. it sounds like her husband. she jabbed at the media a little bit. that's not something that melania usually does. it just kind of fanned the flames. >> some who say she doesn't owe us an appearance because she wasn't elected. she's not a federal employee. in fact, cnn contributor ance o stoddard wrote missing melania gate needs to end now. she doesn't need to appear in a smashing outfit with the president. the media and the twitter mob
7:18 am
need to let it be. who wha do you say to those who say it's not our business to know where the first lady is? >> people were practically pawing through michelle obama's trash when she was first lady. she's not just the president's wife. the first lady of the united states is a position in itself. it is her job to be seen, to be present, to participate. every first lady before her has done so. no one has ever disappeared for 23 days before. this is a really conspicuous amount of time. and so i think it's fair to ask these questions. where is she? why is the white house not being honest about what's going on? >> let me ask you about this being the potentially new normal. this is not a role that melania trump wanted. should we expect her to be more private moving forward? >> i wouldn't be able to answer that question for her. melania has always been a little more independent than other first ladies. there was speculation at the beginning of donald trump's presidency as to whether she might just remain in new york.
7:19 am
she didn't necessarily want to move to d.c. she was pretty clear about that. she has, at times, not appeared at rallies, done separate motorcades. i think she has been a more independent first lady this whole time. this is interesting timing because she's had a more high-profile month leading up to this disappearance. she rolled out her be best campaign, hosted the state dinner. everyone was talking about her fashion choices. her approval ratings have been ticking up. i think it's interesting that right now she suddenly disappears. >> all righty. they are the longest married presidential couple in even with the passing of barbara bush. their love story lives on here. a moving tribute to a decades-long romance that endured war, loss and political life. struggling to get the upper hand on this wildfire in colorado. look at these flames. and there's concern that storms in the forecast may not give firefighters the relief they're
7:20 am
hoping for. >> sunday on "parts unknown" anthony bourdain is head ed. if you spit blood when you brush or floss you may have gum problems, and could be on the journey to much worse.

7:25 am
been destroyed after all. a spy chief accused of human rights abuses 90 minutes of one-on-one face time in the oval office. >> kim jong-un is on a roll. one of his top lieutenants, a man believed to have a lot of south korean blood on his hands and who led a major cyber attack on the u.s. met in the oval office with president trump and, in a remarkable moment, got a handshake from the president. >> amazing turnaround in events. >> all the more amazing considering less than six months ago this violent, impulsive dictator was considered an international pariah. >> end of 2017, kim jong-un was a leader who hadn't even met the president of china. and was very reclusive, much like his father and grandfather and led up to the moniker leader
7:26 am
of a hermit kingdom. >> reporter: then came kim's new year day speech, expressing desire to soften relations with his enemies, so-called olympic thaw with his sister extending a hand to south korean moon jae-in, including the optics of a groundbreaking summit, even holding hands and announcement of a planned summit with president trump. >> we'll be meeting june 12th in singapore. it went very well. >> reporter: two meetings with chinese president xi jinping, along with secretary of state mike pompeo. now the russians want in, arranging their own meeting with vladimir putin. what made kim change? >> maximum pressure campaign, sanctions regime against north korea has taken a serious bite out of the regime. kim jong-un has been quite desperate. >> he now has the weapons.
7:27 am
he has the weapons and he has the delivery system. so he feels more confident. >> reporter: fueling kim's confidence? the fact that the u.s., south korea and china have been look willing to look past his egregious human rights violations. >> we did not talk about human rights violation. >> men, women and children held in camps, induced malnutrition, torture, public execution, secret executions. you're talking about a regime that's investing heavily in its tools of death. >> reporter: a record that a veteran diplomat says trump and his allies might have to look past to reach the ultimate objective. >> if we are to lower the agenda to include denuclearization, human rights then we'll have to include japanese abductees.
7:28 am
biochem weapons, conventional weapons. it does get overcrowded. i do not blame them for prioritizing denuclearization and security at the highest. >> reporter: veteran security experts warn that president trump, moon jae-in and their allies could lose sight of kim's ultimate objective, staying in power, and they worry he'll do anything to stay in power, include possibly cheat on a nuclear deal or even start a conflict. brian todd, cnn, washington. >> joining me now, scott jennings, cnn political commentator and special assistant to george w. bush and d.c. democratic chairman and scott and scott. scott boldin, may i use your first name so we're not confused
7:29 am
on who we're talking to? >> you mean my first name alan? >> my mother will love you for the next 6 1/2 minutes. >> terrific. you're alan for the next 6 1/2 minutes. scott, let me start with you. one on one in the oval office with the president, have they earned it? >> i don't think they've done enough to get relief from the sanctions. i think both sides are inching towards a meeting that is absolutely necessary if you want to have a denuclearized peninsula. if they don't talk and don't meet, we'll have the status quo, which is not acceptable to the american people and frankly shouldn't be acceptable to the rest of the world. i do think they have to do certain meetings like this to get ready for a summit. i want to see this succeed. i'm dubious that the north koreans will ever denuclearize. obviously their mission is to get sanctions relief while giving up as little as possible and we have to probe their government to see if they're
7:30 am
willing to go farther than what they have in the past. >> could that not be -- could this meeting with kim jung-choi have happened to allow a second leader to be invited to a meeting with the president for an hour and a half seems to be legitimacy. >> president trump believes he is the best negotiator in his government, and he believes he will be able to read these people best. that's how he has run his campaign and runs his administration. this is a legacy issue for him. if he were able to solve this, this goes down as his foreign diplomacy in his administration. i'm not surprised he's in every single meeting. >> alan, now to you. the president, instead of what he said several weeks ago, that he's hoping this meetding will be a success, and getting rid of
7:31 am
the nukes in a single meeting, now suggests that there will be a series of meetings, that this is a getting to know you. is this a tempering of hopes and lowering of expectations? >> politically for him it is. it's a wrong approach i think. look at the history of the negotiations over 20, 30rks 40 years in prior presidents. very elongated meetings. we make a lot of economic support and concessions to north korea in exchange for them either trying to accept democracy or reducing their weapons or reducing their human rights and it never happens. they get the economic support but america, historically, has not gotten much out of those elongated meetings. the president's approach for any negotiation, whether i'm settling the case or on the world stage with north korea, you negotiate from a position of strength. do it with maximum pressure versus saying we're not going to use that term anymore. and the north korea has shown you who they are. this say rogue regime.
7:32 am
he has a nuclear warhead now, at least most of us think so. and it's gotten him to the world stage. >> sure. >> it's gotten him to the negotiation table with donald trump and the u.s. guess what, it's worked to getting there. he has shown you who he is. why would he stop, if you will? he has been very successful. the pressure is all on the u.s. to get a deal. there's no pressure on north korea. by the way, they've got some new friends now. china and russia, which is really going to make negotiations and long-term impact really messy. >> yeah. lavrov just a couple of days ago. this decision not to talk about the human rights in this first meeting yesterday. we know the president also didn't talk about human rights with king solomon of saudi arabia, didn't talk about it with erdogan of turkey. on and on. why isn't the president having
7:33 am
these conversations and should human rights be part of this discussion with north korea? >> i hope it's part of the discussion. ultimately the number one goal here is denuclearization. until we achieve denuclearization, everything else, unfortunately, i think, has to be secondary. i would like to go back to a point that is just made. all the pressure is not on us. the only reason they're at the table here is because the maximum pressure sanctions have worked. this nation is being starved. and that now has reached kim's inner circumstanle. number two, we have the military resolve that they now believe we are willing to use. the pressure is not on us. the pressure is on kim to get sanctions relief and the pressure is on donald trump to continue to show that kind of resolve so that they understand. they can't come into this process to leave. they have to believe we're willing to use our military. ultimately, frankly, that's driven them to the table. >> let me ask you, alan, about the human rights issue. i want to flip the question this way. in 2015 when president obama was
7:34 am
pushing the iran nuclear deal and there were questions about why doesn't this deal approach ordeal with the american detainees? why does this not impact any of the actions as relates to sponsoring terror across the middle east? and president obama said there's one goal to keep iran from getting a weapon. why doesn't that justification apply here for north decree camera? >> well, that justification does in supporting the trump administration. here is the deal. north korea is far more dangerous to the world, far more isolated than iran is or could ever be. i agree that denuclearization is the number one goal. but they're loaded up on issues that have been unresolved because north korea simply has not been accessible by the rest of the world. and so i think, you know, this
7:35 am
whole idea of ignoring north korea's violations is very dangerous. they're not to be trusted. any good deal to denuclearize north korea has to be attached to verifying that they're doing it. secondly the human rights violations has got to be addressed. for several decades it's gone unresolved. >> we have to point out this is the exact opposite argument we heard from democrats in 2015 when they supported the iran deal that dealt with nothing more than the inspections and making sure that iran did not get -- >> perhaps that's all that could be on the table at that time. it's a different deal. >> for those who are saying that human rights should be discussed as part of this deal, they can only go back to their quotes from three years ago. alan scott bolden, back to a.
