tv   CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield  CNN  November 4, 2018 11:00am-12:00pm PST

11:00 am
larger importer of american weapons. u.s. arms sales increased by a stunning 448% in this five-year period compared to the previous five years. thanks for being part of my program. i will see you next week. >> hello, everyone. thank you so much for joining me this sunday. i'm fredricka whitfield in washington, d.c. with less than 48 hours until voting day in washington, d.c., we are seeing a frantic push from president trump and rivals. two days before polls open, an investigation in georgia. the office of secretary of state brian kemp, also the republican candidate for governor is accusing the democratic party of hacking into the voting system in an attempt to expose its vulnerabilities. we are waiting for details on
11:01 am
all of that and evidence supporting this 11th hour allegation. kemp is neck and neck with stacey abrams, who could make history as the first african-american woman governor. so much at stake and so much on tap. let's go to the white house and the president will be crisscrossing the country in this last minute push two days before mid-term elections. let's go to washington corresponde correspondent, ryan nobles. ryan? >> president trump is on his way to georgia. marine one just lifting off from the south lawn of the white house. president trump did take time to speak with reporters before he heads out on these campaign trips stopping in both georgia and tennessee. what we heard from the president was a degree of expectations setting. the president talking about what he hopes will happen on election day and of course how that impacts his role in all of this.
11:02 am
the president seems pretty bullish about what will happen and he feels a lot of energy, that same level of energy he felt during his own victorious campaign in 2016, but he did offer up the caveat that he is more focussed on the senate than he is in the house of representatives where many analysts view that the democratic chances for gains are taking back the house of representatives are much better. the president even offered up a qualification in harts to the house of representatives saying there is only so much campaigning he can do between now and election day and it's impossible to visit every one of the house districts, but he can have more of an impact in the senate. let's listen to what the had the had to say. >> i'm now leaving for georgia. i will be doing a rally. we have a tremendous number of people as you probably know, standing outside trying to get
11:03 am
in. it's for brian kemp. he's running for governor of georgia. we are then going to tennessee where we have a tremendous crowd. we have a lot of crowd. i don't know what that means, but we always have a lot of crowds. that's very interesting. in tennessee, it's marcia blackburn and she is doing premendously well and will be a great senator from tennessee. that will be the second stop. the first stop is georgia. we are going to have a very busy day and tremendous crowds. i think we are going to do well with the house. my primary focus of course has been on the senate. there are so many people in the house and that's a lot of stops, but i have done some house work also. we will do well in the house. my primary phoning us has been
11:04 am
on the senate and we are doing really well in the senate. if you look at early returns, they are very positive. with so many people in congress with so many people in the house, it's very hard to make those stops. i made a number. i think we are going to do well in the house and really well in the senate and there is something going on out there. i think you know what i mean. there is something going on. there is something very interesting that's happening. the level of fervor. the level of fever is very strong on the republican side. i can't speak to the blue, but i can speak to the red. there is a lot of energy out there. they want to see border security. they don't want people pouring into our country and don't want open borders and pay for other people's health care. there is a lot of enthusiasm on the republican side. i haven't seen it really since
11:05 am
our big election victory in 16. it's tremendous. a tremendous spirit out there. i haven't been briefed. i don't know anything about it. brian kemp is running a great campaign and i think he will be a fantastic governor of georgia. that's why i'm going. he's running a really great campaign. he's really -- he studied for this job for a long time. he will be a great executive. he will keep georgia going on the path it's going, which is up. he's going to do a great job. we will make a statement out there. i did focus on the economy, but you people don't like to cover that. we have the greatest economy in
11:06 am
the history of our country. the jobs report that came out, 250,000 added jobs in just october. it was incredible. wages going up. 3.1%. you look at every single element of that report was a 10. it was perfect. we have the greatest economy ever. you people don't want to cover that. you would much rather cover illegal immigration which is okay for me too because we are doing a great job at the border. nobody else could do the job we are doing. as you know, the democrats want to have open borders and all of those tens of thousands of people pour into our country. that's not going to happen. >> [inaudible]. >> i don't view this as for myself. you can. i see headlines in the "new york
11:07 am
times" that it's really about me and it's not really. i'll accept that. i think we are going to do very well in the senate and very well in the house. the difference is i can't campaign for all of the house members. there are so many of them. i can help senators and i think i made a big difference. five or six or seven. that's a big difference. everywhere i have gone we had massive crowds. these rallies are the best thing we have done. the rallies have been the thing that caused this whole big fervor to start. maybe back in '16 in the presidential vote, but i have never seen such enthusiastic republican party. they are enthusiastic about how well the economy is doing and they are enthusiastic about security and taxes being lowered
11:08 am
and getting lower again. they are really enthusiastic about the border. they are really seeing something very, very good at the border. we are going to work on the tax cut. we already started. i have been working with kevin brady and we are working with the house. we are doing a 10% tax cut. if we lose control of the house, that's not going to happen. we are doing a 10% tax cut for the middle class. we are starting the process with kevin brady. we are very well along on it. we will be submitting when they come back. the iran sanctions are very strong. the strongest we have ever impos imposed. we will see what happens. they are not doing very well.
11:09 am
iran is not doing very well. it's a big difference. when i came to office, if you go a day before, it looked like iran was going to take over the middle east. it was a question of less than years. very quickly. now nobody is talking about that. we will see what happens. the iran sanctions have gone into effect. they are the strongest sanctions that our country ever issued. >> [inaudible]. >> say it? >> [inaudible]. >> i think from what i understand, the georgia campaign of brian kemp has been extraordinary. a lot of people are voting and a lot of republicans are voting because they want to see georgia go forward and not backward. if she gets in, georgia is going backwards. if he gets in, georgia is going forward. >> you see there, fred, the president of the united states
11:10 am
is setting the stage for the election on tuesday. i want to point out and i'm sure we will talk more about in terms of the election, but the point he made about sanctions in iran, that could be a news making bit that the president talking about there. iran sanctions are on the table in the wake of pulling out of the nuclear agreement. before he took office, iran was prepared to take over the mideast. i'm not sure about the analysis regarding that, but that could be a key thing before he heads out on the campaign trail for the final two days. >> that's a real item this week. right now his focus is com pa campaigning in georgia and beyond. making a lot of comments there, being a lot of fervor and momentum behind the republicans at the same time. while he is interested in talking about the economy, he put blame on everyone else saying everyone else wants to
11:11 am
talk about immigration and other things, but he rattled off some economic successes. thank you so much at the white house. appreciate it. let's head to the next destination for the president, macon, georgia where he will be campaigning. sarah westwood is already there. the president and vice president will be sharing the stage with brian kemp who by the way, was to be in a televised debate with stacey abrams, but he decided this is going to be the place he would rather be. >> reporter: that's right, fred. this race is as tight as they come. one of the most closely watched gubernatorial contests in the country. brian kemp was supposed to debate stacey abrams today, but he cancelled it to appear on stage with the president tonight. stacey abrams looking to make history as the first black woman to become governor in any state in the country. she attracted some star power with former president obama,
11:12 am
oprah winfrey going down to the peach state to campaign with her. if neither gets 50% on tuesday, then gubernatorial contest could go to a run off. that's why president trump is coming here today. he hopes to put brian kemp over the 50% threshold and stave off a run off. georgia is one of the only states on president trump's final tour ahead of the mid-terms that doesn't have a competitive senate race. he has been focusing on states where republicans are hoping to defend the gop house seat or pick off the democratic incumbent and he is ending in trump country with a trumpian message, focusing on the message of the caravan heading to the southern border. listen to what he had to say in pensacola last night. >> when you look at that caravan, that's not what we want. that's not for us, folks.
11:13 am
not for us. we want people to come through our strong borders, but they have to come in legally. they have to come in absolutely through a process and they have to come in through merit. >> the president has five rallies left on his schedule before election day including the one he will have here in a little over two hours from now. then he is heading to tennessee as he tours and ends this eight-state tour ahead of election day, fred? >> thank you so much. let's talk more about that investigation in georgia involving the secretary of state's office who also happens to be the republican nominee for the gubernatorial race looking into whether the democrats are involved in any kind of hacking.
11:14 am
kayly hartung is here, what are they looking for? what are the allegations. >> the secretary of state's office is not providing evidence as to why they opened up the investigation into the georgia democratic party. brian kemp's campaign are saying the democrats tried to expose vulnerabilities in the voter registration system. the office maintains this is an ongoing investigation and they can't comment further. these claims are being absolutely refuted by georgia's democratic party and saying they are 100% false and they did not create, discover, or attempt to take advantage of deeply vulnerable system operated by the secretary of state. sta stacy arey abrams was on state the union and shared her reaction to the news. >> i heard nothing about it and my reaction would be that this is a desperate attempt on the part of my opponent to distract
11:15 am
people from want fact that two different federal judges found him derelict in his duties and forced him to have absentee ballots counted and forced them to be allowed to vote. he is desperate to turn the conversation away from his failures and refusal to honor his commitments and he is part of a nationwide system of voter suppression that will not work. we are going to outwork him and outload him and we are going to win. >> this is the latest in a campaign that is full of drama and litigation. this news comes as we are learning from the coalition of good governance and involved in litigation against brian kemp. they are now claiming that the online voter registration database use used to update the polling list is open to manipulation as well. brian kemp's secretary of state said the databases are secure
11:16 am
and no data has been compromised. throughout the campaign this has been a contentious issue. brian kemp and his role as secretary of state while competing for the state's top job. stacey abrams called for him to resign and jimmy carter called for him to step aside, but he refuses to do so. >> thank you so much. keep us posted as you learn more about that investigation. don't miss how it all shakes out this tuesday following election night in america starting tuesday at 5:00 p.m. eastern time. we'll be right back. i just got my ancestrydna results: 74% italian. and i found out that i'm from the big toe of that sexy italian boot! calabria. it even shows the migration path from south italia all the way to exotico new jersey! so this holiday season it's ancestrydna per tutti! order your kit now at

11:21 am
governor is accusing the democratic party of hacking into the system to expose vulnerabilities. the investigation now in its infancy, but it's under way. how much is at stake for the state of georgia. the congressman from pennsylvania, charlie dent. former press secretary for bernie sanders, simone sanders. also joining me, larry noble from the federal election commission. thanks to all of you for being here this sunday. singleman, you first. how do you size this up? this investigation by the office of the brian kemp who is the current secretary of state. is it a desperate attempt or a very tight race? he wants to get ahead or influence voters with this investigation? >> it is a tight race and it looks like an attempt to throw out something at the end. i can't speak to the merits of this charge.
11:22 am
nobody is going to have information on this until after the election. as soon as this election is over, whoever wins is going to be in litigation. if sanders wins, kemp and his team will take this to court saying the democrats are cheating and if kemp wins, they are going to accuse him of voter suppression. nothing is going to be resolved between now and election day, but they are stirring the head. there is not going to be any resolution. >> abrams. is this another indicator. those who said bribe kemp should recuse himself or resign because of the exact match law. he challenged 50,000 georgia voters and now this is something new. an investigation into the democratic party. >> it's definitely a sign of
11:23 am
what are you worry about whenned the secretary of state overseeing the election and they are running to be governor. they are calling the shots on the fairness of their election. >> does it happen? >> it happened in other states, but it's something you have to be careful about. even if he had evidence of election hacking by democrats, he has no credibility. he made efforts and the secretary of state's office disenfranchised voters and two days before the election, they are saying the democrats tried to hack the database and they won't give evidence. if you can't talk about it, why mention it. why not wait until you are done with the investigation. it look like an effort to sway voters. >> is this stirring uncertainty when they hear something about this? >> voters in georgia, should be concerned that the secretary of state is charmed with fairly
11:24 am
administering an election. it's unfortunate and the only way to stamp it out is to vote. that's what you will see folks do when they go to the polls. it's hilarious to me because brian kemp's office in 2016 refused help from the department the homeland security is shore up the database and make sure elections would be and secure. on two occasions, they leaked information from voters's information including social security numbers. you can tell us about an investigation we will have details on, but we can't get absentee ballot information? i wish that brian kemp would do his job. he just can't be a fair broker here. >> brian kemp should be in a position of real confidence. he's the secretary of state. this is a very red state. he was to have the last
11:25 am
televised debate with stacey abrams this evening. they were counting on it, but he is instead going to appear with the president. is that the capital in a traditionally red state that the president is a greater asset than another opportunity to represent himself to the voters? >> the president is showing up only in very red areas. i can tell you that i know my former republican colleagues in marginal and swing districts are not inviting the president into their district and not talking about the things like birth right citizenship or caravans. they are talking about the economy. if you are bringing in the president at this late hour, you have a problem. i'm not saying he is going to lose, but he's got a problem and this is a desperate attempt. i don't think this is going to change anybody's vote. the abrams people are going to be with abrams and the kemp people with kemp. this is further muddying the
11:26 am
issue. you are in trouble if the need the president at this hour. >> every campaign has been talking about whether it's an asset or an issue. south of georgia, another historic making. gubernatorial race and in that you have the former georgia governor who made a comment, this after ron desantis make his own monkeying it up comment. this is sunny purdue. >> public policy matters. leadership matters. that's why this elections is so cotton picking important to the state of florida. i hope you all don't mess it up. >> cotton picking. is this dog whistling again? >> words matter. they do matter. he can say that's an express i use, but we know what it refers to. if you are talking about
11:27 am
political actors, you have to be careful about what you say. that tends to appeal to racist voters. about changing votes, this may not change any votes, but it can tamp it down and excite his base. >> how can this intimidate voters? >> it's interesting that folks, many of my conservative friends will say why do folks talk about race? race is whether we like it or not tied to many things we do. we look at education and our public policy and the races that people wage to win elections. the fact of the matter is that i think this florida race has done and upon something is happening. they pulled the cover back on the kinds of tactics that are very much alive and well in modern day american politics. i don't think purdue had a slip of the tongue. he knew what he was saying.
11:28 am
if you are a voter that would like to combat this rhetoric and doesn't like what's happening, you have the power to go to the polls and elect andrew gillum and bill nelson. >> another sign of desperation? >> yeah, i think so. by the way, the term he used, cot ton picking and monkey it u, these were poor choices. they were talking about america first. >> it's more than poor choice of words. there is intent when you use language like that. >> there can be. i can't speak to their motivations, but it's a terrible choice of words. does it have an impact on the election? i don't think it does at this point. >> for doesn't inspire voters. whichever direction. >> i think the die is cast. it's two days before the election. these statements i don't think are going to have that big of an
11:29 am
impact at this point. >> i think people know who they want to vote for. the question is, will they go to the polls. it pulls the cover back on where people stand. if you talk about monkeying it up, the only people with cotton picking minds were cotton pickers which was the slaves. not to encourage people to shave their minds, but it introduces an additional dynamic. if you vote for andrew gillum, do we want a black man in charge of the government? that's what this alludes to. >> the tone of language that is not difficult to break a coat to figure it out. >> it's not and especially with the people he is talking to. to get the voters who will respond to that and who are racist and get them up and get them to the polls. you don't want them say the sitting back.
