>> from cnn world head quarter atlanta. welcome to viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm george howell. >> and i'm natalie allen. "cnn newsroom" starts right now. thank you for joining us. u.s. president trump and former president barack obalm are on the trail. >> president trump conceded they could win a majority but wouldn't be to blame if that were to happen. he also pushed his immigration message, telling crowds democrats want to invite migrants, crime and others into the country. >> i think it could be a red wave, i tell you what. i think it shouldby -- >> the democrats, and it could happening. we're doing really well in the senate but could happen and you know what you do, my whole life
you know what i say? don't worry about it. i'll just figure it out. >> on friday barack obama campaigned for democratic candidates in florida and georgia. he accuses president trump and some republicans off lying and fear mongering. >> what we have not seen what we're seeing right now is politicians just blatantly repeatedly, baldly, shamelessly lying. just making stuff up. that's what they're doing right now all the time. don't be bam boozaled, don't be hoodwinked. when words stop meaning anything, when truth doesn't matter, when people can just lie with abandoned, democracy can't work.
>> former u.s. president there. the current president fired back, accusing mr. obama of broken promises during his presidency. more on this from trump campaign stop in indianapolis. >> reporter: president trump continued his war of words at rally here in indianapolis. trrs the president tore into obama who accused trump earlier in the day of telling lies. president went after obama said he told lies off his own and called attention to the middle name by writing out on a "h" with his finger. >> it's no surprise joe dawnally is holding a rally this weekend with barack h. obama. barack obama. i watched him speak today. he a very small crowd.
they don't talk about that and they never talk about how big our crowds are. >> president also seized on the subject of immigration but took time out going obamacare. democrats may want to seize on those comments as they've accused the president of trying to weaken that law and its protections for people with preexisting conditions. jim acosta, cnn, indianapolis. >> thank you. republicans are so deeply intrenched in some u.s. states it's hard to get traction but this year a few of those states are genuine battle grounds. >> democrat stacey abrams and republican ryan camp are locked in a heated debate for governor. some big stars are trying to help these candidates win. >> former president barack obama received rock star's welcome in atlanta. he came to campaign on behalf of stacey abrams.
he headlines by saying this might be the most important election of his lifetime. >> the consequences of any of us staying home really are profound. because america's at cross roads. the health care of millions of people are on the it it balance, making sure working families get a fair shake is on the ballot. but maybe most of all the character of our country is on the ballot. >> obama spoke in familiar tones but he didn't mince words when he essentially called output and other republicans for the rhetoric that we've heard in the lead up to these midterm elections. rhetoric he said is meant to divide us, make us angry and fearful. president obama the latest in a
string off big names that have come into the state on behalf of each of the gubernatorial candidates in a dead lock race. the next one to come to town, president trump on behalf of ryan chem. >> let's talk more about this. leslie is the head of the u.s. and america's program at chatham house, the royal institute of international affairs live in london. a pleasure to have you on the show. we're seeing the former u.s. president barack obama hit the campaign trail in stark contrast of president trump. very opposite in messaging. which message makes the biggest impact in what is clearly ea divided electerate? >> remember right now as with many midterm elections is seeing widely as a referendum on the sitting president. they're trying to ignite the
passion of their voters and to get them to turn out and vote because so much of it right now is about getting people to turn out and vote as opposed to necessarily altering the way in which they're going to vote. they have very different messages. president trump, as we've seen, is really campaigning on a message that's about fear, anti-immigration. interestingly in a context where the economy is very strong, rather than really making that his key message -- even when he talks about the economy, he's drilling down on the fear that there could be set backs if the democrats were to do well in these midterm elections. president obama saying lies and governance are just not american and what what we should be looking for. >> you mention the economy. y but immigration, again mr. trump pushing on that narrative of a caravan of men,
women, children of babies coming to as he put it over run the country. mr. trump seemed to back away from his earlier suggestion that u.s. military should shoot immigrants if they throw rocks. listen on the before and after. we'll talk about it. >> 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 and police, i say consider it a rifle. >> they do that with us, they're go eing to be arrested. there's going to be problems. i didn't say shoot. but they do that with us, they're going to be arrested for a long time. >> technically, lesley, he did not say shoot but is this that dog whistle thing? you say something and slap it down? >> clearly it's designed to
rally the base and one interesting thing is whether he's pushing that immigration message in part because maybe his base hasn't seen the economic gains that america is more generally seeing. but he's clearly facing some constraints from the people around him. deeply controversial, the idea he would send military troops and the idea that they would shoot. but those round him, that caravan is at least a month away. the timing looks deeply political and there are very serious people around him undoubtedly will be trying to walk him back from this strategy. one would hope. but he puts the words outthere, they have an impact. there's a very significant backlash against that from people who think very seriously about the integrity off the u.s.
military. >> the economy doing pretty well though not the center piece when he is on the campaign trail. thank you again for your time. >> thank you. >> so be sure to join us next tuesday for extensive coverage of the u.s. elections it starts at 5:00 p.m. eastern time and we go unthrill the results are known. >> we don't stop, we keep going. iran responds with defiance and anger. we will go live to teheran just ahead here. plus the strong storm that produced a tornado in central florida. we'll have more on the destruction caused by all the winds there as cnn newsroom pushes on.

juvéderm it. talk to your doctor about the juvéderm collection of fillers. sanctions start on iran. they're very big. they'll be elevated from there. as you know sanctions are starting on iran and you know iran is taking a very big hit. >> the iran sanctions that president trump is talking about go into effect monday the same sanctions that had been lifted under the nuclear agreement. they order countries around the world to stop buying iranian oil and take action against port operators and ship builders. >> mike pompeo says eight oil importers will get temporary
exemptions. pompeo has said the european union will not be one off them. our senior international correspondent joins me from teheran, iran and you've been out talking with iranian about the sanctions. >> reporter: yeah, natalie and it's a mixed bag of things that you hear from iranians. president trump come out and say these sapnctions are going to ht iran very hard. there's no doubt that's the case. ayatollah was on tv saying america will fail in its quest to dominate iranians. but regular folks on the streets very concerned about the economic situation in the iran that's already been developing with the economy in a free fall and more hardline elements here in iran continue to stay put.
>> reporter: the usual chants against america more forceful than usual, during hardline friday prayers in teheran. ripping into the u.s. we are encountering a real fight with our main enemy, america and they're 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. i think this is an opportunity. >> reporter: so far iran's rulers not buckling under u.s. pressure. if it was the trump administration's intention to weaken the iranian government, that doesn't seem to be happening. in fact many are uniting under
military and in anger over washington's policies. >> we are doing a big number on iran. >> reporter: sending iran's economy and 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 every day items are three or 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 said and they shouldn't be turned again. and deep concern as iran's people brace for more economic
hardship. so far the iranian government has said they don't want talk with the trump administration at this point in time and one of the things causing so much uncertainty is that people don't know how hard these sanctions are going to hit. they know it's going to be pretty bad. how much oil some othese countries going to be able to import from iran. at this point in time anybody ps guess how hard it is going to be hit. tr the oil and gas sector is such a major part othis can country ps economy and they have been able to expand after the nuclear agreement. looks like a lot of that has gone away. just exactly how mup they don't know. two things stand out. uncertainty and the lack of seeing a way forward as to how iran is going to be able to overcome sanctions and get on
track to make them go away at some point. >> they go in place monday. fred, thank you. ahead let's talk about these powerful storms that ripped through central florida friday. severe damage, power outages. produced tornados near the city of tampa. >> captured the power of the wind gusts. the wind tore off roofs and uprooted trees, filling the streets with debris. >> you know at one point during these tornados that moved through the region, winds were estimated 100 miles per hour. we've got the moment that one of the tornados formed. hopefully we ecan play this video ou so you can see that spinning batch of clouds you see across the roadway just outside of tampa and scary moments for these people. that's a little too close for comfort for me, if you ask me.
it was officially reported an ef 1 tornado. it damaged 17 homes, .7 miles wide. that is a significant tornado, folks. there were six in total that central florida experienced friday evening. 20 reports of wind damage. there was hail report would this line of storms that moved through. this is really just part off a larger storm system that stretches along the entire east coast. new york, boston to philly the way that nation's capitol, it will be extremely wet, that i 95 corridor and americans feeling the brunt of this low pressure system with high wind warngs and advisories from boston to new york. wind gusts could exceed 50 to 60 miles per hour across new

but so far she says it seems that some in washington and this is something we've heard from others here. trrs they feel that some in the trump administration are using a stalling tactic. hoping that the world will forget about this. that the world will mub on without the united states jeopardizing its ties with saudi arabia. she's saying she will not give up. she'll continue calling for justice and this is something we've heard saying they are going to continue with their investigation and they will get to the bottom oof this, they say and the fear here is and i rr heard this from several human rights activists in this region. they say unless the united states and the international community really push for accountability and justice in this case, there will be many other jamal khashoggis. cnn, istanbul.
there are new calls from the u.s. for a ceasefire in yemen. it's created one of the world's worst humanitarian crisis. >> millions are suffering from call ruand starvation. many are children. the new york times published a shocking photo. we want to warn you about it because we're going to show it to you in case you missed it but it's so important to see. >> here's the photo. the 7-year-old girl being treated for severe malnutrition. many readers were struck by her haunting stair. they wanted to know what happened to her. we understand she died just a week after the photo was published. >> tyler hicks described what it was like to meet her and be in yemen at this time.
>> amal was responsive. but very calm. she had such little energy and to me it just didn't seem like she would survive. we heard arwe eleft that she'd been discharged from the hospital. however that was not because 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 because new casess were coming in and there's virtually no space for them. when you drive down any street whether it's in a big city or out in the middle of nowhere, you are absolutely -- there are people coming up to the vehicle begging. people are desperate. they're laying in the street and not like a small amount of people. it's everywhere you look.
the entire country is desperate. no jobs, no money and that's leading to mass starvation. >> unicef says some 400,000 children just like amal are suffering severe malnutrition. >> doctors without borders warns it's impossible to have an overall view of malnutrition across the country and we're going to talk with our guest about why that is. the head of mission for doctors without borders in yemen. she joins me over the phone from the capp capitol. why is it that it's so hard in yemen to get a sense of the scope of this disaster as far as starvation, malnutrition of so many people and as we just saw of the very youngest and poorest
children? >> hi, yes. so perhaps we can come back just a second on famine. because i know there's a lot of misleading information. we say widespread and food short nls or complete lack of access to food from the population. not only children but mothers, fathers, everyone. and those people are in extreme coping mechanisms and increasingly vulnerable to other diseases would lead to high mortalities. there's no evidence of this situation at the moment in yemen. it's not something that k we ecan replace in our projects.
something we want to emphasize is it's a very dear situation for the population. in fact we do are very concerned about the nutrition of the population in yemen. we continue to receive every day malnourished children. we receive since january, 3,300 across the country. increased exposurer to food insecurities and this is a result of various factors lead to direct or indirect consequences of the war. there is a detearieration in the situation >> yes, and i want to ask you this is an ongoing war. and economy's in shambles, there
are no jobs, they are truly desperate. what is preventing the situation from improving? what would help your organization work in the country? what would helpia get more access to people across the country? >> i gave various challenges we are facing in the country and access, as you mentioned is one of them. so access leading to insecurity and the war in itself. it's true a lot of population are still living very close to active front lines and that's are they need access to health care and that's where we are. security is one of the reasons. it it's a burden that's heavily impacting the access in the country. so a ulso of course from to the
health is a big huge problem and this is linked, as you engz ammed to the inflation on the very high cost of the trump -- and to the security thoorks fear and this prevents them to arrive on time or early enough. and we see them arriving at late stage with a lot of complications that makes it difficult for us to save them and to care for them. >> right shs yes. the photographer in the new york times saying they to leave the hospital because there was not anything they could do for her and the family didn't have money. and this terrible, terrible situation in yemen. thank you so mup. much. >> thank you for giving me the chance to talk about yemen. >> thank you for being with us and we'll be right back. uffy?
