tv   CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin  CNN  October 9, 2018 11:00am-12:00pm PDT

11:00 am
hi there, i'm brooke baldwin. you're watching cnn. we begin with the stunning departure of a trump appointee just as another makes a new arrival. hours after the celebration of his new supreme court justice, br brett kavanaugh, president trump has accepted the resignation of
11:01 am
nikki haley. she spoke alongside the president earlier today at the white house about why she's leaving, as she pretty quickly quashed any talk of 2020 presidential prospects. >> she's done an incredible job. she's a fantastic person, very importantly, but she also is somebody that gets it. we're all happy for you in one way, but we hate to lose you. hopefully you'll be coming back at some point. but in maybe a different capacity. you can have your pick. that was really the thing i think she did best at the united nations. she got to know the players. she got to know china, russia, india. she knows everybody on a very first-name basis and they like her, except for maybe a couple, which is normal, they can't all like you. but they do. they really like you. maybe more importantly, they respect her. >> now the united states is respect respected. countries may not like what we do but they respect what we do.
11:02 am
they know that if we say we're going to do something, we follow it through. i don't have any set on where i'm going to go. i think that the main thing was i was governor for six years and we dealt with a hurricane, a thousand-year flood, a church shooting, school shooting and to come in and do iran and north korea, it's been eight years and i'm a believer in term limits. i think you have to be selfless enough to know when to step aside and let someone else do it. thank you, mr. president. it been the honor of a lifetime. for all of you that are going to ask for 2020, no, i'm not going to ask for 2020. i can promise you what i'll be doing is campaigning for this one. >> that's go straight to our cnn senior diplomatic correspondent. she referred to the job as an honor of a lifetime. the fact she's leaving, i want to know why now. >> i think that's what everyone
11:03 am
wants to know. that was a lot of talk. you saw this big production of hadder sitting with trump there, tons of praise and talking about all she's been able to do in the job so on and so on but you're left with the question "what?" at the end of it. why now? why were people like the secretary of state and national security adviser blindsided by this announcement now according to multiple sources. if the president knew months ago, as he said he did there, why did nobody else know? i mean, her own staff was surprised by this announcement today. so according to new reporting, most of which is coming from our white house team, it seems that haley wasn't always going to stay in this position anyway, that she did give this letter of resignation to trump last week when she met with him. and in that she outlines her thinking, the fact that it's
11:04 am
time for her to move on, that she doesn't see entering the private sector now as a step down but a step up. so the reporting is that the timing just seemed right now. she tendered this resignation last week but she didn't want it to be concurrent with the kavanaugh situation still going on in that supreme court battle, looking like she was leaving then because it had to do with gender issues and that battle, but she didn't necessarily want to leave after the midterms and what if the gop loses the house. she wanted all the feeling to be good and positive. she also would like to earn some money if the private sector right now. she's been in public office for 14 years and she lays that out in her resignation letter. but there's tons of talk out there as well. we should note this does come one day after a public watch dog group is asking the state department's inspector general
11:05 am
to look into trips that she took on private jets belonging to people that she says are friends of hers, they were also donors to her gubernatorial campaign. there might not be any wrongdoing there, it's all preliminary, but that timing is there. did it have something to do with that? nobody knows definitively. we only know on reporting from people close to the situation. >> let's go straight to the white house now to reaction there. jeremy diamond is up live. the president said six months ago that nikki haley approached him about leaving and now we're lettering a bit more about her timing. listening to michelle, it sure sounds like a lot of high-ranking officials were blindsided. who did know? >> reporter: that is the question this morning. while the president did say six months ago, we know it really started to come together last week.
11:06 am
that is when nikki haley last wednesday met with the president at the white house, and we're told according to two sources that that is when nikki haley offered her resignation to the president. but from them until this morning, it remained a very, very closely-held affair, something that is not all that common in this white house as you well know, brooke. many senior officials in the white house did not know. the president's top national security and foreign policy adviser, the exact and national security advisor john bolton, both of them we're also told were not aware this was coming down the pike until thois morning. the secretary of state did speak to reporters briefly. >> the second thing i wanted to say was i wanted to thank ambassador haley for the good work that she's done. she's been a great partner of mine for the now five months
11:07 am
that she and i have been working to th together. i want to wish her well in whatever comes next for her. >> nikki haley earning praise there from mike pompeo. the secretary of state walking away there, as you can hear under a cacophony of questions being shouted there. that's because he may not want to answer about when he learned of nikki haley's resignation. it's a position that really does fall under the state department, he did not know she was planning to resign. the way this announcement with released and the president coming out to speak with reporters in the oval office alongside nikki haley, stage
11:08 am
managing the whole affair. brooke? >> thank you. let's have a bigger conversation now. joining me, my guests, seeing mike pompeo, we know it was nikki haley who wanted to become the secretary of state. she was none too pleased she didn't get the job. maybe that's not the reason why she's exiting now, but i'm wondering might that play a role? what do you make of the timing here? >> it's hard to speculate if that may have been part of the cause. there are a lot of theories we could throw at this. i do want to bring it back to the world of the u.n. in particular and the fact of the matter is the united states just had its presidency in september during the u.n. general assembly. for any u.n. ambassador, that's
11:09 am
a peak of their career, to have that presidency on top of it during that month. if she had been thinking of leaving, it could have been because she didn't get the secretary of state position it, could be because she has political ambitions beyond 2020 and wanted to leave at a high point. whatever it might be, the timing make sense. she's had all these accomplishments over the last two years. the grind at the u.n. is really relentless. i was there, of all the positions i had in government, including compared to the white house, my position at the u.s. mission at the u.n. was by far the most trying and just 24/7. i do think that the timing for her resignation, almost on two years, going through the u.n. general assembly and u.s. presidency makes sense for that. but the exact reason is hard to say. >> david, what do you think? >> well, i think this is a big loss. there were times during this administration where it felt like nikki haley was the conscience of the
11:10 am
administration, especially on foreign policy and human rights issues. >> she got away with speaking up and speaking out and disagreeing with the president, unlike so many other people in the administration. it seemed to be okay if she did it. >> that's exactly right. that's why it's a big loss. you have to speculate, is this because she has conflict with pompeo, more likely with bolton. we know bolton's views on the u.n. are very strong and she might not fully agree with them. as michelle talked about on the top of your show, there are allegations, breaking news this morning, that she's being investigated or potentially going to be investigated for her use of corporate jets. we don't know if there's anything to that but we also don't know if there's more coming out and she wanted to get ahead of that story. i hope that's not the case but this is overall just a big loss. >> who is, michelle, who would be -- she had that more moderate tone. who will now be that pushback
11:11 am
voice within the administration? who would really steer the ship on foreign policy? >> there has been talk, too, that she may have seen her role changing some, now that the president has john bolton firmly in place as national security adviser. he has been extremely outspoken. that speech he gave against the international criminal court, going on and on about what an abomination he feels it is, that may not have set so well with her, may have been on the extreme side for her beliefs. she may also see her role changing some now that pompeo seems to be trump's right-hand man in many ways and has been a champion of trumpian policy. most policy of course does come from the white house. there's been some reporting that she sort of felt like things are a little different now. just like more things, it seems like it's likely a combination of timing here.
11:12 am
and she has been outspoken. she's been one of the most visible, headline making members of the administration when she goes out there before the u.n. in a speech that not necessarily might be watching on their tv in the middle of the day but makes headlines by saying things like "russia has the blood on its hands of syrian children." she has been extremely outspoken on russia, even when the president himself at time has seemed the absolute opposite. so will there be somebody that fits that exact role? no. but there's been lots of talk that it could be deana powell maybe coming back to the administration. she handled sovereign wealth funds for goldman sachs. would she even want to come back. there's even talk about ivanka trump -- >> i want to hear hagar on this.
11:13 am
i think we have a photo of dina powell was in south carolina fishing with nikki haley, so they were together over the weekend. and the ambassador was really gushing not only about ivanka but jared kushner. there's the fishing photo. let's go back to this morning, guys. roll the sound from when she was talking about ivanka and jared kushner. >> i can't say enough good things about jared and ivanka. jared is such a hidden genius that no one understands. i mean, to redo the nafta deal the way he did, what i've done working with him on the middle east peace plan, it's so unbelievably well done and ivanka has been a great friend. and they do a lot of things behind the scenes. >> now, hagar, nepotism, yes. but should we not rule out
11:14 am
ivanka trump? a source familiar says ivanka's name has been in the discussion. >> nothing would surprise me but for me that sounds a little far fetched and i find it surprising that dina would want to go back in already. i wouldn't be surprised if ambassador rick cornel had his eye on that position. now he works with nato and nato is another multi-national organization so it lays the foundation for that work, for that type of position. i wouldn't be surprised if he has his eye on that position. ivanka or jared, this is a senate-confirmed position at the end of the day so they've got a lot stacked up against them in that regard. i don't know if they themselves want to put themselves through that kind of scrutiny. that's something that ivanka has
11:15 am
complained about before. i wouldn't be surprised. i will say i want to add one point to david's point in particular, a source of mine at the u.s. mission to the u.n. did mention to me that although they did find out recently about her resignation on tuesday, i guess, that they are mourning this. they are upset. they felt she brought a sense of respect to the building, that she respected others even when there were differences on policy. >> from everyone i'm hearing from, it's a loss and i think that speaks volumes about nikki haley. thank you all very much. this powerful category 2 hurricane is churning. could be the strongest storm to hit florida in a decade. we'll tell you how people are preparing. and with just 20 days until the midterms, both parties are
11:16 am
trying to convert passion into votes at the polls. but a new cnn reveals what could be a major obstacle ahead. and when hillary clinton says we can expect to see civility return again. >> you cannot be civil with a political party that want to destroy what you stand for and what you care about. i believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the house and/or the senate, that's when civility can start again. th healthy. and part of staying healthy means choosing the right medicare plan. humana can help. with original medicare, you're covered for hospital stays and doctor office visits when you're sick. but keep in mind you'll have to pay a deductible for each. a medicare supplement plan can cover your deductibles and co-insurance, but you may pay higher premiums than you do with other plans. and prescription drug coverage isn't included. but, with an all-in-one humana

11:18 am
so i started helping at a school for special needs children. i think they do more for me than i do for them. the reality of cancer is not everybody survives. surviving for five years is a big deal. at ctca, they have a huge celebrate life event. that was amazing because the whole day was about all of the survivors. i'm not exactly sure what's ahead of me, but i'm excited about my future. visit to schedule an appointment now.
11:19 am
11:20 am
this storm is now being described as monstrous, spinning
11:21 am
toward the florida panhandle. hurricane michael is threatening the gulf coast and florida is right in its path. state officials are warning people they have less than 24 hours to pack up and get out. >> hurricane michael is forecast to be the most destructive storm to hit the florida panhandle in decades. it will be life threatening and extremely dangerous. >> cnn is giving the first gl s glimpse of what the hurricane looks like now. millions are under storm watches and warnings. right now hurricane michael is a category two storm but forecasters say it will likely make landfall as a category three. i'm hearing the story with this storm is the wind. >> you mentioned it's only a category two now. i want people to understand we're only one mile away off
11:22 am
from being a category three. 111 is the next threshold to the next level. this storm is only likely to increase and intensify as it continues through that every warm water in the gulf. winds are still gusting at 130 miles an hour. the models are in very good agreement about where it will go in the next 72 hours. we expect landfall to be around the panhandle, winds around 120 miles an hour sustained with gusts higher than that. storm surges are the concern. that 8 to 12 feet, the red area, including panama city about 6 to 9 feet and even a play say, tampa, is still likely to get two to four feet of storm surge. wind is also going to be a big concern with this, not justal r
11:23 am
even inland. that's going to be a big concern for power outage, not just for the coastline, but states like georgia, north and south carolina, all of these areas here including cities like atlanta and columbia, south carolina, may have significant amounts of power outages, even though they are well far inland. also, brooke, rainfall. that's going to be a big concern. not just around the coastline but also the carolinas. brooke, the thing to note, we still have several river gauges above flood stage from florence that have yet to come back down and now we're going to be adding more rain on top of that. >> thank you. we'll stay in close touch with you as this storm hits. this may be the strongest storm in terms of wind speed to make landfall this year.
11:24 am
die a diane gallagher is live. you tell me how it's feeling out there now. >> reporter: i'd say it looks like most people are heeding the warnings. we haven't seen too many people out on the beaches, at the shoreline. of course there's one or two but this is a tourism hot spot. a lot of people are here for fall break with their children, the state and private entities, like airlines, have tried to make it as easy as they can for them to get out of here. the governor has already activated 2,500 national guardsmen and women and deployed 300 troopers from the highway patrol to assist with the evacuations and after marred of the storm. they've suspended tolls to ease their road inland. if you take a look out here now,
11:25 am
we're starting to get winds again here. the surge with the water, the waves have been getting higher. we've had a lot of churning out there right now up by the pier. just a little bit ago we saw some trucks coming along the beach, picking up all the trash cans. there was some other equipment picking up anything that had been left on the beach to prevent any sort of projectiles. but i'm going to be honest, the local officials seem even more concerned about that storm such in panama city beach. water is deadly. there are a lot of people here who live in one-story homes. this is a low-lying area. we're not even eight feet above sea level where i'm standing right now. for them it's important for people to get far enough inland to escape that storm surge. we're in a mandatory evacuation
11:26 am
and there are ten counties with mandatory evacuation. they can go to a shelter and go inland for at least a couple days. >> diane gallagher. i'm on a play headed your way in a matter of hours. we'll see you down there and we'll ride this thing out. thank you, diane, in panama city beach. >> and republicans are trying to use brett kavanaugh to energize their base. but they're facing an uphill battle with female voters. liberty mutual saved us almost $800

11:31 am
after weeks of debate, defense and controversy, newly confirmed justice brett kavanaugh has his first day of work today, but not before witnessing an extremely rare moment from the president of the united states. just a reminder here, president trump has said it himself, he doesn't like to apologize, ever, even when called upon to do so. let's make a quick trip down memory lane. here a couple of those standout moments. during the presidential campaign, trump refused to apologize for mocking a disabled reporter, for saying john mccain was not a war hero, for insulting a gold star family and for not backing his own intelligence community as he stood near vladimir putin and minimizing the nearly 3,000
11:32 am
people killed during hurricane maria in puerto rico. but for brett kavanaugh, he made an exception. >> on behalf of our nation, i want to apologize to brett and the entire kavanaugh family for the pain and suffering you have been forced to endure. i must say that you, sir, under historic scrutiny were proven innocent. >> while the trump administration is celebrating kavanaugh a major victory, could remarks like this energize democrats more? polls say 54% will be voting for democrats in their general elections. it's good to have both of my guests on. yes, republicans got a huge win
11:33 am
in kavanaugh, but we see poll numbers today showing this huge gender gam for the republican party. in in that same cnn poll, 63% of women say they will be voting for democrats. so republicans have a woman problem. this is not news. it just seems though it gotten worse. how do they fix it by november 6th? >> i think this is the most potent potential problem trump has brought to the midterms, he's taken a group of white, college educated, white urban women and moms to folks who will lean left in the future. that is a problem particularly in these vulnerable house seats. i will say also, though, this kavanaugh fight, people are potentially underestimating how much it did energize republicans on the other side, including
11:34 am
republican women. the issue for democrats is their enthusiasm was already way up here and the republican party's job is to bring parity. i think they actually do have a chance to gain a bit and it will matter more in senate races than it does in these vulnerable house raceraces, where it reall matters. >> do you think, matt, that trump's strategy, the republican strategy of weaponizing brett kavanaugh, you know, if they just do this for the next four weeks, do you think that's a winning strategy? >> i definitely think it's a winning strategy for the midterms. we could look back and say it was one moment on our way of democrats having a demographic problem. but in terms of the midterms, democrats are already motivated. nothing that happened, you know, last week is going to matter to the person who is already upset
11:35 am
about all the other things donald trump has done. democrats were motivated, passionate, angry. they are either going to turn out or they're not. republicans, they're the team that needed the excitement, the passion, the energy. they didn't have it. in mid terms that's what's matters for turnout and now i think they do. i believe it's the overreaction of the left. when you see people like ted cruz getting chased out of restaurants by a mob -- >> oh, you're not going to use the mob word here. >> it's totally a mob. >> stop, stop, stop. a mob is what we saw in charlottesville, virginia two augusts ago. a mob is not what we saw chasing -- i'm not saying what they did was right. >> what about the people who were at the supreme court banging on the walls? what do you call that? civil protest or is that a mob? i think it's easily a mob. >> and if we were tea partiers,
11:36 am
we'd call it a mob for sure. let's be serious. >>let me move past the "m" word. i do feel like that is part of the weaponization of what's happening now on the right. at the same time i think you do make an interesting point in a piece of read of yours today that while this whole issue with kavanaugh and ford has been incredibly candivisive in this country, it was unifying among republicans. republicans had a republican problem. you said this is what caused republicans to be one big fuzzy family again. >> yeah. the brett kavanaugh case -- now, there are never trumpers, prominent never trumpers, journalists and intellectuals that this was very divisive. it split the never trump movement. you had half of them, the eric erikssons of the world who now feel pushed into donald trump's
11:37 am
camp. i think it's a backlash against the left. then you had the max boots and jennifer rubins of the world pushed the other way. in terms of the rank-and-file average republican voter, a lot of people around the country don't really like donald trump but saw brett kavanaugh as a regular kind of sfrt thconserva that marco rubio or jeb bush would have picked. so the attack on him, which they view as an attack on them. a lot of people who don't like donald trump who wouldn't bother to turn out in the midterms now may. but the big question is can they keep this going for a month. we have a month to go and that's a long time in politics. >> mary catherine, finish my sentence. kanye west is going to the white
11:38 am
house this thursday and -- >> becoming the u.n. ambassador, obviously. >> i hear laughter through the metal door and through the hallways. zen j >> enjoy, everyone. >> many cog coming up here, hil clinton is talking everything from the republican party and kavanaugh nomination process to how to restore civility in washington. you will hear from her in christiane amanpour's interview next. geico has over 75 years of great savings and service. with such a long history, it's easy to trust geico! thank you todd. it's not just easy. it's-being-a-master-of-hypnotism easy. hey, i got your text- sleep! doug, when i snap my fingers you're going to clean my gutters.
11:39 am
ooh i should clean your gutters! great idea. it's not just easy. it's geico easy. todd, you will go make me a frittata. and back pain made it hard to sleep and get up on time. then i found aleve pm. the only one to combine a safe sleep aid, plus the 12 hour pain relieving strength of aleve. i'm back. aleve pm for a better am. replace one meal or snack a day with glucerna... made with carbsteady to help manage blood sugar... ...and end the day with a smile. glucerna®. everyday progress.
11:40 am
11:41 am
11:42 am
after brett kavanaugh was sworn into the supreme court, hillary clinton said president clinton staged such a spectacle, its undermined the president. >> it further undermined the image and integrity of the court and that troubles me greatly.
11:43 am
it saddens me. because our judicial system has been viewed as one of main pillars of our constitutional government. so i don't know how people are going to react to it. i think given our divides it will pretty much fall predictably between those who are for and those who are against. but the president has been true to form. he has insulted, attacked, demeaned women throughout the campaign, for many years leading up to the campaign and he's continued to do that inside the white house. >> joining us cnn politics editor at large, chris cizzilla. she called what happened last night a political rally. we know trump is pretty effective when it comes to rallies. what is hillary clinton up to here? >> well, i mean, i think in her
11:44 am
mind she's filling a space that no one else can can fill between now and whenever democrats choose who their nominee is going to be in 2020, which is sort of the face of the trump resistance. i don't think this is some long con that she's going to run for president again. i think she's done with that. but i do think she believes that there need to be voices that speak up and say this is not normal, this is the sort of thing that we have to call out and she believes herself to be in a position still to do that. you know, i don't know how much she helps the cause. i think she herself is so divisive. she says people are going to line up in their camps one way or another as it relates to the trump/kavanaugh thing monday night. well, hillary clinton's comments people are going to line up in their camps, too. >> is she the person, m.k.? >> she's welcome to be who she
11:45 am
wants. she's been out there for years. do i think it's strategically super helpful or she's a vibrant new face for the democratic party or resistance? i do not. and there are others who speak out plenty who serve that role probably better. >> hillary clinton weighed in on the confirmation process just on the whole. >> you cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. that's why i believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the house and/or the senate, that's when civility can start again. until then the only thing the republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength. and you heard how the republican members led by mitch mcconnell, the president really demeaned the confirmation process,
11:46 am
insulted and attacked not only dr. ford but women who were speaking out. you know, look, i remember republican operatives shutting down the voting in florida in 2000. i remember the swiftboating of john kerry. i remember the thing that even the republican party did to john mccain in 2000. i remember what they did to me for 25 years, the falsehoods, the lies, which unfortunately people believe because the republicans have put a lot of time, money and effort in promoting them. so when you're dealing with an ideological party that is driven by the lust for power, that is funded by corporate interests who want a government that does its bidding, you can be civil but you can't overcome what they intend to do unless you win elections. >> chris, we watched this really
11:47 am
spectacle volatility unfold during this whole process. it was ugly no matter what. but does running on an anger platform remedy it? >> hillary clinton, whether purposely or not, is running the case for michael avenatti 2020. both parties are driven by ideology. that's why they're parties. they are co her cohered by a se ideology and values. it's a little oversimplified. i do, however, think, the there be a real debate as democrats look to who they want and there's going to be a million -- 30-plus kpcandidates. there will be a debate do we
11:48 am
want to get back to politics pre-trump, where it was more genteel and civil or do we need for lack of a better word, an avenatti? donald trump changed it and we need to fight fire with fire. >> can we go back, mary catherine, into a pretrump era to a "pre-genteel" era? >> i think part of that is looking through rose colored glasses. trump was a response to what many felt was cultural bullying during the obama years. hillary clinton's comments here are sort of a tell that the civility gambit is nonsense. it's not about civility. it's about you shut up until we
11:49 am
win. that's not actually civility. and with respect, i am hold enough to remember how the clinton company treated his accusers and paramours over the years. it was part of my political coming of age at 18 or 19 to see how that played out so to hear it from her is somewhat hollow for me. in this process, activists have been abetted by -- ran with the avenatti outlandish accusations that did not have corroborations. so that wasn't exactly civil or part of the normal process. i'm not endorsing the ratchet but this is a ratchet situation here. >> thank you both very much. >> as a small community in new york is in mourning after a horrific limo crash that killed 20, we now have details about
