it's a new innovative twist. think of a small doughnut hole filled with creamed cheese. comes with four flavors. we started back in 2014 making maybe 500 out of our house. now the production facility behind us here can make 20,000 a day and they are being sold in 205 grocery stores throughout texas. in the early days we got involved with the communities and then a lot of organic growth happened through that. a lot of good will ambassadors. >> we have four flavors. >> the industry as a whole is moving toward smaller bite-sized foods. maybe for portion control but also very convenience. i think everyone is looking for that. former trump campaign chairman paul manafort is headed to jail. >> there's some 18 counts near virginia. 7 in d.c.
they're piling up. >> i feel a little badly about it. they went back 12 years to get things he did 12 years ago? >> he's not going to pardon anybody in this investigation but he is not, obviously, going to give up his right to pardon if a miscarriage of justice is presented to him. two adults, four children just finished crossinging the rio grande here a little while ago and now they're in the custody of border patrol. >> i hate the children being taken away. the democrats have to change their law. >> you can tell dhs to stop doing it. >> i think it's so disguftsing. so disgusting that people are trying to use the bible in the same way they use the bible to justify slavery. ♪ so it is 8:01 on a saturday morning. we are so grateful to have you with us. i'm christi paul. >> i'm martin savidge in for victor blackwell. as president trump wakes up at the white house this morning, paul manafort, his former
campaign chairman, is waking up in the vip section we're told of the northern regional jail in virginia. >> we don't know what that means to be in the vip section but he arrived there last night. this was video captured after his bail was provoked. he may remain in jail until his trial starts in september. >> president trump called the treatment of manafort unfair. then hours later his attorney giuliani says pardons could be in the pipeline if the president thinks his former staffers are prosecuted unfairly. >> my advice to the president of the united states, as his lawyer, not as a government lawyer, is no pardons. it would completely change the momentum that we have right now because it's very strong right now. you can see the polls moving in the president's favor and against mueller. >> why did you suggest it? >> i didn't. what i said was after the investigation is over, then it
has to be considered as a governmental matter, not by me. what the history has been is these things get cleaned up. ford did it. reagan did it. carter did it. clinton did it and bush did it in political investigations. >> you're saying after the probe is over, it may be cleaned up with any pardons? >> if people were unfairly prosecuted. >> so it's pretty clear this morning the question is, is giuliani sending a message? >> cnn politics reporter joining us live from washington. jeremy, what is your take on that? what are you hearing from washington about that argument that maybe he's sending a signal here to manafort and the others to say don't worry about it. i've got it taken care of. >> this is the latest mixed messages we've heard from rudy giuliani hours before he said that to chris cuomo, he suggested in the new york daily news that pardons could be used to clean up this case. the question really is, what is
giuliani and the president trying to say to paul manafort and others who potentially could be implicated in the case. the president tweeted this was a tough sentence on manafort although he hasn't been charged. his bail was just revoked by a federal judge. but the question of pardons has obviously been swirling out there. the president has issued several pardons already to people who aren't involved in the special counsel case and a lot of suggestion it's a signal that if the special counsel gets too close to the president that a pardon could emerge. now the point sheer that manafort is now going to be under more pressure to flip on the president and start cooperating because instead of being in the comfort of his own home, he's now in a federal prison. >> jeremy, thank you so much. we appreciate it. here's the other question -- can anything or anyone stop the president from freely using his power to pardon? >> page payton, cnn legal
analyst and criminal defense attorney with us right now. so let's talk about that real quickly because we heard giuliani say at one point the president is not going to let go of or give up his right to pardon if he sees there's a miscarriage. nobody is asking him to do that, though. >> not yet, though. right. they've already sent the message they think at least trump and his team thinks that manafort is being treated unfairly. that's basically what he said. the question is when are you going to issue that pardon? are you going to do it now, which he could and immediately he'd be released from jail or wait until the process is over? wait until the investigation is complete? wait until manafort's two trials have been completed and wait until he's convicted? >> so we want to listen to rudy giuliani again because he did also in his conversation with chris cuomo talk about what he believes is a critical error bob mueller made. >> i believe bob made one critical error that's going to
doom this investigation. >> which is what? >> hiring those people. i would never have done it. if you look at special independent counsel probe, they generally get nonpolitical people. three-quarters of the prosecutors of high regard in this country, i'm talking about federal now, are not involved in partisan politics. i wasn't involved in partisan politics until i ran for mayor. >> is that true? generally is that true? >> what we've seen and been seeing is the trump team attacking the investigators instead of the substance of the investigation. that's something defense lawyers always do. i'm always going to focus on any issue i can find to attack or at least bring into question the credibility of the agents and the other investigators who are involved in the case. but how do you screen everyone who has some political belief, some political feeling? you get to a point where you'll not have anyone investigating
the case. while the credibility of the investigation is critically important, a particular investigator's political views are not necessarily important unless they affect the conduct of the investigation. we've not seen that here, even though i'm certain bob mueller wishes those tweets and messages had never been sent out, the tweets back and forth between the agents. that. >> but it works into the hands of the president and, of course, rudy giuliani by just insinuating the whole process is flawed, that there's a political method to this madness going on here. it works for them to continually try to erode the competence in this investigation. >> and they have an audience for that. already a number of people in this country believe this investigation is purely politically motivated. it's a witch hunt. when you have something like this, these text messages that clearly never should have been sent, it clearly adds fuel to that fire. >> and the talks of the pardons,
rudy giuliani, he tried to walk that back a little bit. let's listen here. >> let me make it clear right now, anybody listening. >> please. >> he's not going to pardon anybody in this investigation. but he is not, obviously, going to give up his right to pardon if a miscarriage of justice is presented to him. >> doesn't that wind up meaning that he -- >> you are shaking your head. >> there's no doubt that president trump is going to pardon paul manafort. the only question is when. i think the concern that rudy giuliani and others have is some people could say you can use the pardon power in a manner to obstruct justice if you do it during the course of the investigation, especially if there's reason to believe that the people on the receiving end of that pardon could testify against you. i think it's -- >> why are you so certain, though? >> that he's going to be pardoned? >> yes. >> giuliani says he's willing to use the pardon power if someone has been treated unfairly. and president trump tweets out he thinks the sentence is wrong. he already tells us he thinks
manafort is being treated unfairly. he's sitting in jail and hasn't been convicted. i don't downtoubt that's coming. the optics of pardoning someone during the investigation could look like obstruction. >> but if you think they're going to flip, would it be possible to try to cut that off? >> it's possible, absolutely. then we'll get into the legal weeds here. if you pardon someone early enough where they're not facing any criminal expose uthen they have no fifth amendment privilege. then bob mueller or another prosecutor could call that person as a witness and force them to festify about what they know because they can't say i'm not going to talk because you may prosecute me. once you've been pardoned, you don't have that same fifth amendment right. >> do you think paul manafort has been treated unfairly? >> i don't know about the substance of the case against him. there are a lot of charges. but if you violate the bond conditions while out on pretrial release, you're going to go to jail. so put all the other stuff aside, he didn't follow the rules. if you don't follow the rules in
federal court you'll wait in jail for your trial. >> all righty, always appreciate your expertise. thank you for being here. >> absolutely. >> we'll have more rudy giuliani ahead, giving us his take on trump's 2020 prospects, making some really harsh comments about former vice president joe biden. >> he's dumb. i think joe's last in his law school class. had a plagiarism problem in law school and as a senator, which i think indicates something even about character. >> also, the scoreboard on fire at the world cup. six goals were scored. three by one man. he makes his case for being the greatest of all time. >> also controversy at the border. now an idea of how many children have been separated from their parents. with an ingredientyour bn originally discovered... in jellyfish. in clinical trials, prevagen has been shown to improve short-term memory.

an idea of the scope of the family separations happening at the u.s. border with mexico. homeland security department says 2,000 immigrant children were separated from their parents just over the last six weeks. >> that number is for the period in april and may when the u.s. government started enforcing a zero tolerance policy for adults caught crossing the border illegally. part of that policy, of course, includes the controversial practice. it has created anguish at the border. confusion and frustration in washington and drawn criticism from the religious community. >> we'll talk more about the politics of all of this in a moment but we want to talk more about the people who are living the story. ed lavandera has been speaking to some of those families. he joins us live from mcallen, texas. i say the number 2,000 but this isn't about a number. this is about children and families. >> the number is to capture the scope of what is going on. that's fascinating to think about that number just includes those separated between april
19th and may 31st. doesn't include the last two weeks. so that number is only expected to go up. and the trump administration has had to open up another temporary facility out in far west texas to house these children. one of the things the trump administration has been saying all along, especially attorney general jeff sessions is that they hope as news of this spreads through central america that this will serve as a deterrent. as we saw firsthand yesterday, that isn't necessarily the case. it's hard to see people moving through the thick south texas vegetation. the rio grande rolls by just beyond the tree line. and then just like that, they appear out of the brush. a small group of undocumented immigrants walking into a public park. >> we just came across this group of undocumented immigrants here in the town of mission, texas. two adults, four children, just finished crossing the rio grande here a little while ago. and now they're in the custody of border patrol. this group is made up of three
different groups. they met along the journey from honduras and decided to enter the country together. they are given water and sit in the shade as they wait for a vehicle to take them to a border patrol station. there's jonathan ariel, 11 years old. he left honduras with cousins but they abandoned him along the way. his mother lives in virginia and told him not to make this journey alone. but now he's here. i told her i wanted to come but she said it's very dangerous. >> are you scared? a little he says. it's a brief conversation that leaves you with many more questions about how a young boy can get to this point. as an unaccompanied minor, he will likely end up for the time being in a children's shelter like this one as federal authorities try to connect the boy with his mother. the rest of this group is made up of two adult women with their
children. dahlia is 24 years old. she crossed the border with her little boy. why did you come? she says gang members left a note at her home threatening to kill her and that's when she decided to flee. are you afraid they'll separate you from your children? yes, he's my son and i love him, she says. i have carried him throughout my journey. she did not know that she might be separated from her son once she was taken into custody in the united states but she says i have nothing in honduras. the families are loaded up and taken away unsure of what happens next. so what happens to these young children now? jonathan there, because he's an unaccompanied minor and that's different from children who come with their parents or guardians, he's automatically kind of cast into another situation. that's why i mentioned he may be put into a detention facility while they try to connect with
his mother. i spoke with his mother yesterday afternoon. she said she already heard from him and was waiting to hear from immigration authorities as to what happens next. as far as the other two adults and their children, this is where the situation gets murky. even though the trump administration has been saying that it is pushing for 100% enforcement of illegal entry that federal misdemeanor charge, that is not happening. we're seeing throughout the week here in south texas a number of undocumented immigrants with their children who have been captured and released given a court date and a gps ankle monitor to track their movement. so it is not 100%, but dhs, department of homeland security folks will not explain how these decisions are made. why some people are prosecuted and why others are released. what happens to the other part of that group is still unclear today. >> ed lavandera, thank you so much. attorney general jeff sessions and other administration officials have defended the practice as being
biblical. lawmakers in both parties we should point out, along with others have criticized the family separations. >> even president trump has suggested it's cruel but there's been some confusion over what he would do about it. republican leaders in congress plan to put their plans for an immigration bill that could address the separations on hold. they say because the president said friday that he wouldn't support it. >> a couple of different bills on immigration probably next week. >> yeah. >> one of them, a bit more moderate. >> i certainly wouldn't sign the more moderate one. i need a bill that gives this country tremendous border security. i have to have that. >> got to have a wall? >> we have to have the wall. if we don't have the wall, there's no bill. >> all righty. later, white house official said the president misunderstood that question and, quote, this is from the white house. fully supports both the
goodlatte bill and house leadership bill. he was commenting on the discharge petition in the house. he would sign the goodlatte or leadership bills. that from the white house. paige payton is back with us. also april ryan. good morning, april. let me start with you. the president calls it cruel but according to "the washington post," he is using this family separation issue as a negotiating tool. i'm wondering your thoughts on that. >> well, any time this president has a chance to use something to his advantage, he will. and it's unfortunate that lives are in the midst of this tool, using them as a tool or as a pawn in a game to get what he wants for immigration. but at issue, martin, you know, this president -- nothing is going to happen. no immigration bill is going to be signed before the midterms because it is too divisive.
it could cost them the election. but you have to remember, this president came into the white house talking about a wall, talking about immigration. immigration system is broken. how do you fix it? is this how you pix it with something people are considering cruel? separating families. separating mothers from their children? you even have religious leaders who stayed away from this president's moral issues, from alleged infidelity and things of that nature but they're weighing in on this talking about the family. franklin graham is saying that this is not right. family is important if you want to bring in religion. it's about family. and family if you're looking at religion, is the first ministry. this president says he's christian. family is the first ministry in the home. >> page, there may be some motivation when you think about it for president trump to stop this practice. and it's this. the u.s., when they absorb these children and take them into their custody and their care,
the u.s. now opens itself up to liability of these children if they -- if something happens to one of them if one gets lost or hurt or gets abused. how liable is the u.s.? i mean, who would pay a price if somebody -- if one of these children disappears? >> the united states will because -- and this reminds me of exactly the way the trump administration rolled out the first travel ban. it's as if they're not thinking two or three steps down the road. these children are not in legal custody as far as being detained because they've broken some law but they are nonetheless in the custody of the united states. that means we need to take care of their health care, whatever mental or emotional issues they may be having because they've just been separated from their parents. and how long does this last? it's happening to some of their parents. they're being prosecuted and deported, but the children? i don't know that they've thought this out. and ed lavandera's report that they're not even following the 100% rule of prosecuting these
folks. they can't because the court system cannot absorb it. i don't think this policy, regardless of whether you think it's a good idea or bad idea, has really been thought out as far as the implementation. >> not sustainable. >> it's not sustainable because we're going to be responsible for all of the children that are being separated from their families. >> april, we mentioned that the president seemed to come out in the morning yesterday and said he wasn't going to vote for a bill. then later the white house came out with a statement that seemed to clarify the president does support both gop bills of this. i'm wondering about whiplash but then this clearly seems to be an issue now that could come back and haunt republicans and it's one of their own making. >> yeah, it's going to haunt them. i'm going to go back before we really get into this piece what page said. the white house and jeff sessions has said it that no matter whether you are adult or child if you cross the border, you are illegally crossing the border. it's a crime. they're looking at it as a
crime. now the devil is in the details. the president has goodlatte that is very conservative and the house leadership bill that's moderate. he wants the wall. he wants to enforce the law, creating something where if you cross this border, you will be punished. and this is punishment. and page is right. they haven't thought this out down the road. when you look at what the president wants. he keeps talking about the wall. that's not the only way people across the border. you have people stuffed into trunks. we don't hear the president or white house talking about smuggling people across the border and you have hundreds of people who die throughout the year coming through the border and these hot trucks on different types of vehicle to get here. so this bill -- the president is thinking has a lot of holes in it when it comes to immigration. it's not complete. and they are just going by the seat of their pants. if something happens to anyone in our custody, and they -- it's like someone, one person may get one type of justice and another
may get another, depending upon who is there at the time to make the decision. this could have tremendous ripple effects with our neighbors to the south. and government to government relations. this just does not sit well with a lot of people in washington and global ly. >> when we look at -- we just talked about the sustainability or nonsustainability of this practice. is there a way, and i know there's not a lot of hope going into tuesday for a bill to be passed or reconciled for this but is there a way to deal with this singular issue to reconcile this without having to wait for some legislative fix as a whole? >> if the president wanted to change it, he absolutely could change it with a phone call. what's happened here is the president has the authority to enforce immigration law as it stands currently in the country. congress makes a law. the president enforces it. and within that prerogative of enforcing the law, the president
can make decisions like they're being made in this particular policy. he can change it like that if he wanted to. or congress can address it. it's more of a political question. this issue is finally going to be the last straw and that we'll now address immigration in a common sense way and it takes care of both children and people that are trying to come into the country for the long term, nojust the short term. >> but you have to go through something horrific just to get there. >> it's unfortunate but apparently so. >> april, page, we're so grateful you took the time to be here today. >> thank you. still ahead -- name-calling, accusations of plagiarism. rudy giuliani says he loves these accusations at former vice president joe bide ebiden. why? we'll tell you. her salon was booked for weeks,

good morning. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor savidge. >> you're wondering what does this mean for me, this it for tat trade war brewing between china and the u.s. of course, president trump slapped tariffs on $50 billion worth of chinese goods. the tariffs from china are set to go into place july 6th. and they target farm products,
soybeans, cars, seafood, tariffs on some chemicals, medical equipment, energy products, that is going to start later. but the move is sparking fears of a global trade war that can do some serious damage to you, to main street. the headline, in fact, on the des moines iowa register. take a look. it reads china tariffs on u.s. soybeans could cost iowa farmers up to $624 million. >> in other news, president trump's attorney general rudy giuliani is taking aim at the president's 2020 re-election prospects. he made some harsh comments about former vice president joe biden. >> he called him a moron and a, quote, mentally deficient idiot. the name calling didn't stop there either. joining us now, cnn white house reporter sarah westwood. where did this come from? >> while the president's outspoken top lawyer is making waves once again.
rudy giuliani is telling the huffington post he considers former vice president joe biden to be a, quote, mentally deficient idiot, like you mentioned. giuliani appeared with chris cuomo last night and defended those comments saying he was remarking on biden's past decisions and potential future decision to challenge trump for the presidency. take a listen. >> let's start with something that has nothing to do with anything, but you made it relevant today. why would you call joe biden what you called him today? >> that he's dumb? >> no, that would have been a compliment. that would have been like an invitation to prom. you called him a mentally deficient idiot. >> i meant he's dumb. i think joe is last in his law school class. joe -- >> he wasn't last, but he was low. >> second to last. the other guy died and he ended up last. >> he didn't do well. we'll give you that. >> a plagiarism problem in law school and as a senator which indicates something even about
character. constantly making faux pas. >> why make a comment about biden? >> i was asked would he be a formidable candidate? i said, no. he never did well as a national candidate. the president did fabulous as a first-time national candidate. >> you really think joe biden is stupid? >> no. >> because you said that. >> in that category. that explains the plagiarism. i think the plagiarism is very serious. i don't think he'll ever get beyond that. >> his comments did not sit well with meghan mccain. she responded on twitter saying, i am disgusted by giuliani's abhorrent and idiotic comments about joe biden. joe biden is one of the great political leaders of all time, one of the truly decent men left in politics and someone my family has looked to for strength during the most difficult time in our lives. senator mccain and joe biden have been freniends for years.
this is not the first time giuliani has caused problems for the white house distracting headlines. he's, of course, commented on the iran nuclear deal, negotiations with north korea and the first lady's private thoughts. >> this is not the first time. sarah, thank you. still to come -- a 29-year-old mother of three believes she's going to be murdered by the ms-13 gang if she gets deported to honduras. the real consequences for undocumented immigrants living in the u.s. we'll talk about that next. stay close. 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.

damage the ms-13 gang had already done to her family. >> now under the administration's new immigration policy, she is scared to show her face and fearful she'll be deported and separated from her children. cnn's nick valencia has her story. >> if you go back to honduras, he'll kill you. >> reporter: an undocumented immigrant from honduras, too afraid to show her face or use her real name. ms-13 gang members murdered her brother. she fled. if sent back, she'll most certainly die. >> translator: you'd rather they kill you here than you die there? >> reporter: for the last seven years, joanna and her american-born children have lived in the shadows of america. she thought fleeing ms-13 gang
violence and being a victim of sexual assault would help her qualify for asylum. she applied in 2011 but admits like so many others she was too scared to show up to her court date. now with a new edict from the trump administration, her greatest fear is what will happen to her children when or if she's deported. she has three children, all u.s. citizens under the age of 7. >> translator: what will happen to my kids? will i be able to take them? if i go alone, what will thoop my children who are here practically alone? >> reporter: on monday, she's in court for driving without insurance and a license. she could be detained by immigration officers. >> translator: with the orders that the president gave to get out all of immigrants, why doesn't he take the time to know how someone's life is? why on the border are they treating us like animals? that's not being human. to not feel the pain of someone else. >> reporter: joanna says under
president obama, she was aware deportations were at an all-time high but still had hope with the prospect of asylum. not anymore. now the only thing she can think of is how best to shield her children from the strong chances of her being sent back. joanna has been getting help from an immigrants rights organization. they say not only is she at risk of being deported but so is her husband who has been detained since early may. joanna tells her children that their father is on vacation. when i asked her what she's prepared to tell her own children after her court date on monday, she says she's yet to express that out loud to them because expressing it would make her chances of going back, she says, all the more real. martin, christi? >> nick, thank you so much. the controversial immigration practice of taking children from their parents at the border. that's one of the most talked about issues on social media. it's also one of the top trending stories on cnn.com. cnn has crews stationed all
