"newsroom" starts right now.
1:01 am
the midterm elections just three days away now. many voters in the u.s. will have a chance to shape that vote, shaping referendum on the u.s. president and the republican party. >> the president does not appear to think that it will all go his way. on friday he conceded for the first time that democrats could possibly win a majority in the house in the midterm elections tuesday, but says that he would not be to blame if that happens. >> i think it could be a red wave. i tell you what, really, i think it should be a red wave. the democrats -- and it could happen. could happen. we're doing very well and we're doing really well in the senate. but it could happen. and you know what you do, my whole of life, you know what i say? don't worry about it. i'll just figure it out. >> is he worried? the president also still
1:02 am
confused about immigrants as he makes his final push for his party's candidates ahead of the midterm elections, mr. trump said democrats want to invite my gramy -- migrants and crime into the country. >> they want to turn america into a violent sanctuary for violent predators and ms-13 killers. a blue wave would equal a crime wave, very simple. and a red wave equals jobs and security. >> president trump is also attacking former president obama. mr. trump accused him of breaking promises during his presidency. >> jim acosta has more from the trump campaign stop in indianapolis. >> reporter: president trump continues a are war war of wordt a rally. he tore into obama who had accused trump earlier in the day
1:03 am
telling lies. trump says that obama has told lies of his own. here's what the president had to say. >> it is no surprise that joe donnelly is holding a rally this weekend with barack h. obama. barack obama. i watched him speak today. he had a very small crowd. they don't talk about that. and they never talk about how big our crowds are. >> reporter: the president also seized on the subject of immigration, and he told the crowd that he has decimated obamacare. democrats want to seize on those comments as they accuse the president of trying to weaken that law and protections for those with pre-existing conditions. jim acosta, cnn, indianapolis. >> and barack obama took his own
1:04 am
shots at the mr. trump. he accused his successor of lying and fear mongering. >> the former president also pushed democrats to get out and vote on tuesday. >> in the closing weeks of this election, we have seen repeateded attempts to divide us, with rhetoric designed to make us angry and fearful. it is designed to exploit our history of racial and ethnic and religious division that pits us against one another. to make us believe that order will somehow be restored if it just weren't for those folks who don't look like we look. or don't love like we love. or pray like we do. >> cnn's randi kaye went to mr. obama's rally in miami to gauge voter reaction. >> and while she was speaking to
1:05 am
voters, there was one interview that surprised her as you will see. >> hello, miami! >> reporter: former president obama once again making his closing argument for a candidate. what can president obama do for andrew gillum? he won florida twice. >> he can energize the young people. he can energize the disenfranchised voters, those who think that their votes don't matter. >> reporter: you think that can pull over left leaning interest interest -- independents? >> 100%. >> i think he brings credibility. i think whoever he says yes to is a credible candidate. >> reporter: still many here remember 2016, and obama's cross-country blitz for hillary clinton in the final weeks of her campaign. his last rally for her was in pennsylvania, which she went on to lose. >> i don't know that the united states is ready for a woman in
1:06 am
the presidential white house. i think that that was part of it. >> reporte . >> what is different now is that we really know who donald trump is. i think anyone that comes out can make a difference now because i think a lot of us are really worried about our country. >> reporter: so worried that they are once again embracing barack obama's message of optimism. what about obama's signature ideal. and his message of hope, is there is a place for that? >> i believe so. even if you look at the upset people, i think if you scrape around that top layer, i think everybody wants peace. >> reporter: is it needed on the campaign trail? >> it is needed on the campaign. we are the people for the people. and that's what we need. not know rich man, poor man, but for the people. >> they promise to take on corruption. instead they have racked up enough indictments to field a football team. >> reporter: and while obama is
1:07 am
breaking precedent by criticizing a it sitting presid so soon after leaving office himself, some want even more of it. >> you have to call him out. when something is a lie, call it a lie. and i see obama has been doing that, which is great to see. >> reporter: for one voter here, this really barack obama's pres here influence your vote? >> i believe it is. >> reporter: we pick the hed he randomly, but when i asked her name, it sounded strangely familiar. >> francis gillum. and my son is running for governor about that. >> reporter: no? >> yes. all right o >> reporter: wait a minute. why didn't you tell me that to begin with? that is not yis not true. that changes everything. so what is your hope for how president obama will help your son? >> well, i know that he will
1:08 am
help him out a lot. andrew is doing well on his own. but with him here, that will just make it that much better. >> reporter: a proud mother, a former president and a question, will it be enough. tuesday will tell. randi kaye, cnn, miami. >> that governor's race in florida one of the ones to watch on tuesday. let's talk more about this upcoming week with richard johnson, he is in lancaster, england. he is a lecturer in u.s. politics and international relations. welcome back to our program, richard. we appreciate it. we have got obama on the trail, oprah on the trail for democrats. what is fueling it in your opinion, mr. trump and his fury or those who strongly dislike him as we just heard one democrat in that story, she said what is different now is we really know who donald trump is.
1:09 am
>> well, if we look attracting polls since the early '80s, when they ask the question does the president factor into your midterm election vote, we see the highest proportion of people say yes, it does. we've seen an uptick both from those who say yes, it is because i want to vote against the president, that is at a record high, and we've seen an uptick among those who say yes, i want to vote in this midterm election to support my president. that is also higher. although not at record levels. and so i think that obviously that the person of donald trump is clearly motivating people to vote in this election and i think issues like the kavanaugh confirmation i think for both sides of the american political spectrum showed what is at stake in an election and how one or two senate seats can make such a difference in determining the long term outcomes of the
1:10 am
country. >> and he is doing rally after rally, talking more with the media right now before tuesday. and he's staying on message at his rallies. he says a blue wave will be a crime wave, a caravan of migrants, it is like an an invasion he said. but he walked back something that he said about migrants on friday. first let's listen to what he said thursday and how he amended his statement friday, here it is. >> they want to throw rocks at our military, our military fights back. i told them consider it a rifle. when they throw rocks like they did at the mexico military police, i say consider it a rifle. they do that with us, they will be arrested. there is going to be problems. i didn't say shoot. i didn't say shoot. but they do that with us, they will be arrested for a long time. >> misstep like that one right there, so close to the election,
1:11 am
will those kind of statements hurt him for anyone who might be on the fence? >> i think the thing about midterm elections, they are base elections and they are about motivating your committed supporters to come out to vote. at every midterm election, fewer than one in two americans do vote in the midterms. so trump's strategy from the start has always been to motivate his core supporters. he was very effective at that in the republican primaries and effective enough to win the presidency. and so rhetoric like this, you know, 71% of republicans say that they are concerned about immigration, 40% of republicans cite national security as one of their one or two top issues in this election. and so he is very much communicating to his supporters. and so even if from an outside perspective this might be
1:12 am
reckless language, he is talking to a different audience. he is talking to an audience of core supporters for whom i don't think that they will even see this as a misstep to be perfectly honest. >> correct in that. i want to ask you, if democrats take the house, what will that mean to the trump presidency. >> well, it will make the president's policy initiatives very difficult. this is not -- this has not been as productive a congress as we have seen when parties have had unified control of the house, senate and presidency, which is quite rare. and, you know, the president did get through this very dramatic tax cut. but it has been weaker on other policy initiatives, notably his attempts to repeal the obama health care law. but any prospects of being able to do that if democrats take the
1:13 am
house will be gone. of course if the democrats don't take the senate, then the president still can make an impact through his appointments including of course if a supreme court vacancy came up, but all sorts of lower courts and executive office appointments that he will continue to be able to make if the democrats can't get that second prize, which would be the senate. >> so much riding on this midterm election. and we'll certainly talk with you again. thank you for bringing us your analysis and insights. we appreciate it, richard johnson. >> thank you. and again just days away from the u.s. midterm elections. voter suppression tactics have become a flash point in the upcoming election. tune into our special report here on cnn, democracy in peril, the war on voting rights, that is at 9:00 tonight in new york. around the world you can watch it 6:00 p.m. in hong kong and 10:00 in the morning in london only here on cnn ar.

1:18 am
the u.s. is set to reimpose sanctions on iran that had been lifted under the nuclear agreement. it is happening monday and president trump is counting down the days. >> want you to take a look at this tweet, a game of thrones inspired teaser showing a stern looking mr. trump with the phrase sanctions are coming. this obviously a play on the fantasy series, the motto winter is coming. >> a book series is the basis for game of thrones.
1:19 am
and its author says fear cuts deeper than swords. vote tuesday the 6th. hbo also released a statement saying they preferred if their trademark wasn't used for political purposes. hbo and cnn share the parent company warner media. the eu, france, germany and the uk are expressing deep regret over reinstating the sanctions on iran. >> when they go into effect on monday, they essentially order countries around the world to stop buying iranian oil. they also take aim at financial transactions, port operators and ship builders. >> u.s. secretary of state mike pompeo says eight oil importers will get temporary exemptions. washington won't reveal who they are until monday, but we know the european union will not be one of them. >> it is a lot of downward pressure on iran. live in iran is fred pleitgen following the story in that nation's capital this hour. fred, given what the u.s. president says is coming soon
1:20 am
for iran, a spokesman for the iranian foreign ministry has reportedly said that nation is unconcerned with sanctions. what is the mood there given what we are hearing here? >> reporter: well, i think that there is indeed a great deal of concern despite maybe what the foreign ministry has said especially if you speak to ordinary iranians. they don't really know what the future is going to hold. and of course the oil and gas industry is so important here for iran and even with those exemptions, it does stand to be the case that iran will be able to export a lot less oil than it has in the past. and that of course coming at a tile when iran is already in a big economic crisis. so among regular folks, there is a great deal of concern. but at the same time, they know all they can do is batten down the patches a the hatches and try to move forward. and here's what we heard on the streets. the usual chants against america
1:21 am
more forceful than usual occurri during hard line friday prayers. a revolutionary guard general ripping into the u.s. we are encountering a real fight with america, he says, and they are using all the resources they have and organizing a battle against us. as the u.s. is set to hit iran with new crippling sanctions, defiance from religious conservatives. >> i think these kind of sanctions make us more powerful for the future. and i think this is an opportunity. >> reporter: so far they are not buckling under u.s. pressure. if it was the trump administration's intention to try to weaken the iranian government, that certainly doesn't seem to be happening. in fact it seems many are uniting behind the power structure of clergy, military and their government and anger over washington's policies. president trump has already hit
1:22 am
iran with a flurry of sanctions. >> we are doing a big number on iran. >> reporter: sending iran's economy and its currency into a tail spin. now the u.s. will target iran's important oil and gas sector, potentially a crushing blow to iran's finances causing concerns in this moderate area. the economy has started getting worse and worse, this woman says. and everyday items are three to four times more expensive than before. and some even calling for talks with d.c. we need real negotiations that both governments would be committed to, this woman says, and they shouldn't leave the table again. defiance, anger, but also deep concern as iran's people once again brace for more economic hardship. one of the things that iranian officials are talking about is trying to make this economy more self-sufficient than it has been
1:23 am
in the past. we know a lot of international investors have already left the country. and as far as the oil and gas secretary are tore tor is conce, thannians -- iranians are opening that it will be difficult to offset by other oil producing countries. whether that is the case will be up for grabs. yesterday secretary of state mike pompeo said yes, the u.s. will grant those exemptions, but that is under the understanding by the u.s. that the countries that get the exemptions will also massively scale down their import of iranian oil. >> fred pleitgen following the story live for us in tehran. fred, thank you. we have a story out of florida now. police are investigating a deadly shooting at a yoga studio. at least two are dead, five others were wounded including one person who police say was pistol whipped. it happened in tallahassee. two of the wounded are listed in
1:24 am
stable condition. the gunman took his own life before police arrived. it is not yet known why the business was targeted or what connection the gunman might have had to the victims. it is the first jewish shabbat since last saturday's deadly shooting at a synagogue in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. and thousands of people from around the world are coming together to honor and mourn the victims lost. >> they are part of the show up for s shabbat campaign. there will be a vigil in a couple hours in israel near tel aviv. former pittsburgh residents are expected to attend. and in london, the mayor says that he will be standing shoulder to shoulder with jews in the united kingdom. at one service in the u.s. state of georgia here on friday, 11 chairs were on display there,
1:25 am
the chairs empty except for the plour flowers there and the names of those killed. >> and in pittsburgh, the last funeral for the victims was held. it was for rose mallinger, she was 97, remembered as being vibrant and full of life. on to london now. police there are looking into allegations that labour party members committed anti-semitic hate crimes. >> britain's opposition party has been plagued with allegations of anti-semitism for several years. we get no amore from phil black. >> reporter: a radio station had labour party documents detailing 45 cases of alleged anti-semitism by labour party members. that was a couple months ago. police have now said that they will formally investigate some of those allegations.
1:26 am
they are consulting prosecutors. and this is significant because labour is the alternative government potentially and it is a party that has struggled to de deal with anti-semitism. more than that, british jews often believe that labour simply isn't doing enough to deal with this, that it is tolerant of these sorts of ideas. and that is why they often describe the labour party as institutionally anti-semitic. in response to the news that police will be investigating it, the labour party says that it has a robust system for investigating complaints of alleged breaches of labour party rules by its members. when someone feels they have been a victim of crime, they should report to the police in the usual way. anti-semitism allegations have are gripped the labour party
1:27 am
every since jeremy corbyn was elected. he is a proud left winger with a long history of sharply criticizing israel. and the party itself among the membership is really divided in two camps. there are largely corbyn supporters who believe these accusations are unfair and they believe that too often too easily kritism is of israel is being conflated with anti-semitism. on the other hand, there are those within the party who believe there is a real issue and the party's very soul and heart is at stake. that it has been torn out by this very public debate. they also believe that the formal involvement of police in investigating these allegations, they think that should settle the debate within the party once and for all. phil black, cnn, london. president trump is targeting vulnerable democrats in the days leading up to the midterm elections. when we return, why he and his team think this is a winning

1:33 am
as president trump crisscrosses the country on behalf of his party's candidates, he appears to be targeting senate democrats. >> jessica dean now has more on trump's campaign strategy. >> reporter: in the final days before the election, president trump and his supporters have zeroed in on red state senate democrats with one message. they are not conservative enough. in west virginia, senator joe manchin has been a prime target. >> he is a liberal and he is chuck schumer's little pet. >> reporter: manchin has tried to walk the fine line of being a democrat in trump country, voting with the president more than any senate democrat including to confirm brett kavanaugh and kneel goneil gors. trump won west virginia in 2016, but manchin remains a slight favorite against republican patrick morrissemorrissey. and in indiana, senator joe donnelly cut an ad proudly touting his independence.
1:34 am
>> i split with my own party. >> reporter: but during a recent debate, he also left the door open for trump's controversial proposal to end birthright citizenship. >> i want to see that legislation, make sure it was constitutional and review it first. >> there is no such thing as a blue dog democrat. a red state democrat. or a conservative democrat. because they are all pelosi democrats. >> reporter: a similar message to the one the president delivered thursday night in missouri. >> claire mccass stikas sicass mccaskill broke her promise and joined radical democrats. >> reporter: and mccaskill is stressing her independence, even calling members of her own party crazy. >> there may be people in this room that think that i am not liberal enough to carry the banner of this party. >> reporter: she is also using issues like border security to
1:35 am
demonstrate how she supported the president. >> we endorse president trump and claire mccaskell because of their records on border security. >> reporter: for trump, it is not conservative enough. >> people of missouri will retire fair left democrat claire mccaskill. who has been saying such nice thing about me, but know what, she will never vote with me. >> reporter: and there are two states with tight senate races that the president is not planning to visit before election day, that is arizona and nevada. recent cnn polls show democratic candidates in both those contests with a slight edge leading into election day. jessica dean, cnn, washington. former trump adviser roger stone has seen numerous people around him called as witnesses in the investigation led by special counsel robert mueller. and one of those people is a political activist in new york. >> and now text messages from
1:36 am
stone to this political activist are being scrutinized. sara murray has more for us. >> reporter: sources tell cnn that robert mueller has copies of some vicious messages from roger stone directed to a witness in the mueller investigation. stone and the witness, a new york political activist, have been friends to ye s ts for yea relationship deteriorating. in one message, it says he was subpoenaed by mueller. waste of your time, tell him to go f yourself, stone says. and stone appears to threaten his dog, the pup went with him when he testified before the grand jury. you back stab your friend, run your mouth, my lawyers are dying to rip you to shreds. i'm going to take that dog from you, stone says in an e-mail. you don't have a constitutional right to threaten me and especially threaten my dog, you
1:37 am
crossed a red line, credico replies. rot in hell stone says. stone is a long time trump political adviser. and the messages raise the possibility that mueller could pursue obstruction of justice or witness tampering charge. mueller has reviewed months of messages and he says nothing supports any notion of obstruction of justice or any improper activity, to think otherwise misunderstands their relationship. back to you. >> stone says that the text messages were taken out of context and do not reflect the true nature of his relationship with credico. >> here is what he told chris cuomo. >> to take three text messages out of thousands really shows no context. these are the late night ravings between two grumpy old men who have been friends for almost 20 years. and chris, they are friendly, they are vulgar, they are vicious, they are nasty, they
1:38 am
are -- but they are not serious. and therefore they would have to be seen in context. so for example, you don't see the text where he tells me that i should be willing to go to jail rather than reveal his identity as my source. you don't see the text where he says my apartment is likely wired by the fbi. you don't see the text where i urge him repeatedly to tell the truth. you don't see the text where he said he is so heavily medicated he can't remember chronolog chronologically anything that happened. >> roger, please, offer up the texts. i'm happy to have them all. >> you can cherrypick -- well, you can cherrypick these, but it creates a misimpression. >> roger stone there speaking earlier with our colleague chris cuomo. now to the fwhar i canwar i has taken a toll on millions. ahead, we'll hear from the man behind an iconic photo that showed those horrors to the world. and also ahead here, strong storms hammer florida.

1:44 am
she was doing better, but because her family didn't have any money to take her to a better clinic. and were forced to take her back to her village. new cases were coming in and there is virtually no space for her. when you drive downey street in yemen, whether in a big city or out in the middle of nowhere in the countryside, you are absolutely- absolutely- absolutely- -- you know, people come up to the vehicle begging. people are laying in the street. and it is not a small amount of people. it is everywhere you look, the entire country is desperate. there are no jobs, no money. and that is leading to mass starvation. >> unicef says some 400,000 children just like amal are suffering severe malnutrition in that country. coming up in our next hour, i will talk to someone with doctors without borders and they will talk about the scope of the
1:45 am
problem and what is in the way for helping more people. we'll talk about that. indonesia's search and rescue agency says that divers found lion air flight 610's main fuselage and that they can hear pings from the cockpit voice recorder. more than 100 divers have been searching the java sea since the plane crashed early monday morning. it killed 189 people. and the search efforts have been dangerous. >> on friday odive on one diver. he was found far from his position. and wboeing and u.s. transportation officials are sending special equipment that could help pull data from the damaged recorder. ivan watson has more now on recovery efforts. >> reporter: more than four days after the crash of lion air
1:46 am
flight 610, authorities here in indonesia are picking up the pieces from this stricken airliner, but in this case they are picking them up from the seabed some 35 meters, more than 100 feet, below the surface of the java sea. there were indonesian divers, and you can see them in this navy footage that was released, teams of -- scores of them involved in this effort. and in this video, they have located a piece of one of the begins from the brand new boeing 737 max 8, which had been constructed less than a year ago, wrapping a rope around it and it is being hauled to the surface by just one of the small fleet of ship, dozens of them involved in this complicated salvage effort. in another piece of video, we can see how part of the landing gear is hauled up. on thursday, the divers were
1:47 am
able to locate the flight data recorder which will help in trying to figure out how this plane went down. they are still searching for the cockpit voice recorder. and they are also collecting day by day remains of some of the 179 passengers and crew who are victims of this disaster. the authorities announcing that at least three of them have been identified. that will bring some closure for this tragedy to some of the relatives and loved ones here. some of whom have told us that they desperately want to retrieve remains of their missing loved ones so that they can bury them properly in a proper funeral. ivan watson, cnn, jakarta. want to take you back now to central florida where powerful stormed ripped through that reenlgs region. >> strong winds produced a tornado near the city of tampa.

cellphoned video posted on social media captured the power of the wind gusts there. >> the wind tore off roofs and up rooted trees in some neighborhoods filling the streets with debris. >> let's talk more about what happened there in florida, a very strong storm, with derek van dam. >> is it unusual for florida to have a tornado? >> we almost get a surge in severe weather this time of year, we call it the second severe weather season that happens in the southeastern united states. even from atlanta down to places like tampa and miami, we see an uptick in tornado activity this time of year. so we have the moment actually that one of the tornadoes was actually just touching down. we caught it on video. it was sent into us from one of our viewers. this is some incredible photos and video to actually see the funnel. you can see the cloud spinning up right in front of this person. tot a little too close for comfort. this is in the spring hill region outside of tampa.
1:49 am
