tv   Inside Politics With John King  CNN  May 4, 2022 9:00am-10:00am PDT

9:00 am
i will be campaigning on it and fighting for it. >> thank you, thank you for speaking to us today. and thank you for watching. "inside politics" starts right now. [ music playing ] hello, welcome to "inside politics. "i'm john king in walk. thank you for sharing a day with us. it was a big day in the inflation fight. the feds poised for the strike and the biden goal is to attain price hikes without stalling the economy into a recession. plus the power of trump. voters in ohio send a clear election night message by picking trump candidates up and
9:01 am
down the ballot. the former president is still the gop's dominant force. how dominant will be tested in the primaries ahead a scorched earth assault, pictures and accusation of war crimes. the russian war in ukraine is bloody beyond comprehension. some ask, why isn't vladimir putin being even more brutal? we begin in ohio, an early mid-term verdict was trump's brand. he is proof, he called trump a dem gochlth he is is on the big lie and conspiracies and surge to win, it began when the former president said vance was his ma'am man. his victory carries considerable juice with republicans and they spell disappointment for republican who's had hoped to move past the big lie. we start our coverage this hour
9:02 am
in cleveland, ohio, kristen holmes. >> reporter: yeah, one thing you didn't mention there was the millions of dollars that outside republican groups spent in the state trying to stop j.d. vance on the ticket. unsuccessfully there. this was a test a. litmus test of donald trump's hold on the political party. last night is clear, if last night is an indication, he yields an enormous power and influence. we know he watched the results from mar-a-lago with allies and aides. sources say he was quote relieved. he is obviously aware what this would have done, what this will do for his brand. he called j.d. vance to congratulate him and the big question is as you say, what does this mean moving forward. this is just the beginning of this primary season, there are several races in which these trump-endorsed candidates are not leading the pack currently, sources that are close to trump
9:03 am
say they believe this is going to start some sort of momentum, to boost at least some of these candidates. of course, it will be something we are watching closely to see if it is, in fact, a ripple effect. it is undeniable. we look at vance's trajectory, just how big of an impact donald trump had. he was trailing in the polls. once he was endorsed, not only did he get a boost. he also led the pack all the way to victory. again, something we are watching very carefully as we head into this primary season. >> the first of many, thankfully, you are on the ground in cleveland. we'll move forward. looking at the map before i break it down, it tells you everything you need to know. this is j.d. vance's color right here. the darker red, the pinkish color, matt dolan. those are the top three candidates. 88 counties across ohio, these results are not final yet, they're not certified, at the moment, j.d. vance leads in 74 of the 88 counties.
9:04 am
he got the endorsement. he jumped. he did right, eeking out a victory in this county, the third largest county in the state. the question is would they bring conservatives? no, j.d. vance wins in a city or the suburbs. the key is this. these are smaller rural counties, 69 of the 88 counties, j.d. vance is close again. a trump-like candidate in josh mandel, the power of the trump endorsement across laurel, ohio, proving the distance. that is if you are other trump candidates, you want to follow the map that donald trump followed in 2020. joe biden won eight counties in ohio. look at all that trump, especially in rural and small town america. that is what j.d. vance rode to victory last night and other trump candidates want to ride and the others come later this month, listen to j.d. vance. he once called donald trump a dem go, said he was horrible for
9:05 am
the republican party. last night he said, thank you and more. >> i have absolutely got to thank the 45th, the president of the united states, john alleged d. jump. i remember in 2019 when workers were doing well in this country. not struggling terribly. thanks to the president for everything. they wanted to write a story that this campaign would be the death of donald trump's america first agenda. ladies and gentlemen, it ain't the death of the america first agenda. >> sharing their insight with the washington post and our cnn political director. it was one of the big questions. there were a lot of establishment republicans. some publicly. most privately, saying they had just hoped that something else would happen here that trump would be embarrassed. instead, trump, this is a victory for j.d. vance and a victory for donald trump. >> it's a huge victory for donald trump. particularly because this month starts off so many primary races, ohio was the first test.
9:06 am
we have pennsylvania, north carolina, alabama, where he's done his unendorsement in that state. but it's also a victory and a validation of donald trump's influence in the republican party because there was a candidate in the ohio primaries that did kind of try to set himself away from the maga crowd and be that anti-trump candidate as anti-trump in a republican primary. we are talking mat dolan. that person did not succeed. very many up the trump wing of the party looked alive. you see the establishment folks, rob portman call us behind j.d. vance, even though portman endorsed another candidate. we'll see what happens, particularly in pennsylvania and certainly a victory for the former president. >> david, let's stay in ohio. a 50-50 senate. very precarious. not a horrible map state-by-state, given the election year climate, when it's 50-50. the democrats are desperate, can we pick up any seats by the
9:07 am
republican surface that seat is held by j.d. vance is the favorite. the congressman one-time presidential candidate tim ryan. listen to him this morning. number one he says j.d. vance is a carpet bagger, didn't stay in ohio. now he's coming back to get the seat, backed by a pro-trump billionaire. he tries to make this about the economy. >> i'm representing the exhausted majority here. the exhausted majority wants to stop the washington, d.c. food fight. they want us to start working together. this is what ohio ans want, bilt build a group of people that care about ohio and the country and put this behind us. the age of stupidity behind zblus he talks about middle class issues. i have been doing this 20 years in ohio. an uphill fight. he says j.d. vance is new to politics, that he will make mistakes. >> somehow not good at this. i don't know that that has presented itself as the viable
9:08 am
path for tim ryan. it is interesting to hear. so much you hear about the carpet bagger stuff and the democratic apparatus, as soon as the vance victory came in, john, was trying to frame vance as actually an elitist. this inauthentic, he was never trump and pro somehow he can't be believed. he's not the guy who identifies with what he wrote in the hillbilly-elegy. time ryan, he may have tried the carpet bagger thing. he talked about the economy every day, he understands the climate you are talking about. but this is a red state now. this is not the ohio of a couple of election cycles ago even. it was the mother of all battleground states. donald trump won it by 8 or 9 points and trended from purple to reasonable doubt. in this climate, that's a mountain for tim ryan. >> if we can show the map to
9:09 am
come. the question is proof, that is trump-endorsed senate candidates. he's involved in governor's races as well. where you have contested primaries. by the end of may, pennsylvania, sean parnell had to drop out because of controversy. dr. oz is there. ted bud. there are other senate races. we will know more by the end of the month. if you are a trump-backed candidate, you are looking in small town rural counties in ohio. there are a lot of those in pennsylvania. a lot of those in north carolina. you will find them as you move on. you are thinking, okay. this is pretty good. >> you are happy, after the ohio results. especially if i was happy with dr. oz, which is weird to say, i would be pleased with the results. you have dave mccormick the maga alumni split before president trump made the endorsement. clearly, this will provide the momentum. we saw the endorsement gave j.d.
9:10 am
vance the momentum in the final weeks of the race, it will be interesting to see he rest of the primary. >> the trump factor, if are you not if trump candidate. do you the make him more of an issue? it's a risk to run against him. two, the trump endorsement came relatively late. in the end, he recorded robo-calls. the president repeatedly undermined our democracy by criticizing the democracy told voters to participate. that helped j.d. vance. >> and thought their votes would be legitimately counted to get him across the finish line. a good note, john. i think we have to be a little careful of what you are saying. even in pennsylvania, for example. dave mccorporeal manyic who is running against dr. oz, he saw trump's endorsement. so i think what we are seeing here is, yes, donald trump can in crowded republican fields perhaps, pick a horse and get that horse over the finish line. that's what we saw in ohio last
9:11 am
night. but the larger point here is no matter which candidate with the trump endorsement or without, that make their way to the nomination are likely going to be trump and maga aligned as much as possible. because that is the fuel of the republican party these days. >> for better or worse. to your point, one of the five broke from the big lie. all the others embraced it to varying degrees, which tells you what we can expect. one legacy of ohio would be break from trump at your internal risk. the ones are later in the program. next very big nick statement. the feds will raise interest rates, they say republicans are worried about it. but he is slicing them by a record a amount imagine having to use the wrong tool at your job.

9:14 am
9:15 am
9:16 am
. president biden today staging a white house event to highlight a step he says helps in the inflation fight. the president also is looking to expose what he believes is republican hypohypocrisy. an announcement in the deficit budget and cut it more and keep paying down long-term government debt. >> the bottom line is debts went up every year under my predecessor before the pandemic and it's gone down both years since i have been here. i don't want to hear republicans talk about deficits and their ultra-maga agenda. i want to hear about fairness, decency, helping ordinary people. >> the president speaking there hours before another big event. the fed meets later today. it is poised to raise interest rates by half a percentage point, matt, let's start with that. the substance, the impact, that is timing inflation.
9:17 am
it believes raising interest rates will do that. we can show our viewers already mortgage rates. they have already jumped quickly. the average american out there who clearly wants inflation taped what are the risks? where is the sweet spot? >> everyone is going to wheel and feel the impact here. the fed hasn't done anything like this since bill clinton was in the white house since 2000. this is not a part of the plan, it was drawn up a year or so by jerome pow em. powell. they don't have that luxury, the jobs market is booming and inflation is at this 40-year high. the fed has to take out the big guns, raise interest rates a lot more. we will see that in borrowing costs. you see the biggest fight for mortgage rates in four decade. the tricky part for the fed is how do they catch up to inflation? a lot says they are behind.
9:18 am
the higher they raise them, the more economic pain. so they got to figure out how to get it under control? >> and the more the worry, the risk, is the fed is trying to tame inflation. do they stall the economy? >> are they too aggressive and stall the economy and tip it into an election year. this is tough enough for the democrats. were it to happen that soon, wow? >> inflation is the biggest political and many others for the biden administration right now. which is why they have so focused on promoting an agenda, cutting prices of food, doing things to lower gas prices, temporarily, it's by where there has been so much focus clearly in the last 24 hours or so about the big abortion implications for the mid-terms, but republicans that i have been talking to are pretty confident and still saying, voters at the end of the day will care about what they're paying at the grocery store, at the gas pump,
9:19 am
obviously, that is what we will be focused on, which is why president biden is holding events like this, why he continues to talk about the economy and the pain that people are feeling. because they know this is a big issue in the mid-terms. >> you mentioned democrats want to talk more about the state of the program, they believe they're mad about the policy implications of the stress, that they might benefit from it. that depends state by state and the particular views are, joe mansion is an opponent of abortion rights. he says that's not the number one issue at home. this is. >> inflation is the number one factor i believe in my state. right now, it's hurting everybody. just at the pump, but at the grocery store, at the drug store, at the pharmaceutical. everything they do. >> david, one of the president's challenges, the democrats who ep to pass something. they have to set aside, they don't have the votes to pass the big bold democratic agenda, they're hoping to find a few pieces to convince the american
9:20 am
people, we are doing things to help the climate, inflation, the economy. they need that guy's vote. >> they do, indeed. that guy talks a lot about deficits and getting budget deficits under control. which is why you heard president biden lead into that today as a reminder that under trump there were growing deficits. under biden, there are shrinking deficits. that is in part to say, i hear you, joe mansion, you identified, the little slices they may get done, you laid out, may be something on the environment, on the economy more broadly, that's precisely the road map of what he would be interested in. we're getting awfully late in this calendar, you know the way capitol hill works to move something that is going to have the ability to take it out on the campaign trail and sell it. i think the clock is ticking for this administration and the majority on the hill. >> if you put that deficit back up on the screen here, during the break. you made a very important point.
9:21 am
the president is right. if you look at the right of your screen, the democratic numbers on donald trump, he came with an all congress. you see it, you have the big spike in the pandemic when understandably the government was spending a lot of money. you see that rise in fame. you see under the biden administration it's starting to come down. republicans cry about deficits, yet, when you have presidents, especially trump, they come up. the president talked about the deficit. speaker pelosi, the republicans would say a san francisco liberal. why is she talking about the deficit? chuck schumer? why? >> a lot of it is getting joe mansion on board, getting him comfortable. but it is time to promote this message of fiscal responsibility and also at the same time when democrats talk about oh rising deficits under republican control, they always like to point to the republican tax law 2017. that gives an opening for president biden and the rest of
9:22 am
the democrats to talk about rick scott, his tax plan. that's a contract they want this year. >> the president wants to make the point. david tried to make this, we will use every tool in our disposal. it might help. i don't want to discount it at all. when it comes to fighting inflation, the fed has most of the eggs in the basket? >> absolutely. this is the actual job of price stability and right now prices are anything but stable. we'll watch the fed announcement play later today. next for us, though, live for ukraine, russia expanding the strikes. there is a fierce fight under way at that besieged steel plant in m mariupol. oung woman) three?

are you a christian author with a book that you're ready to share with the world? get published now, call for your free publisher kit today! lbgtq. sort of important developments in ukraine. the european union says it is ready for a russia oil ban. russian is expanding its target list. it will target nato weapon shipments. the steel plant is blocked, that according to moscow and civilians trapped beneath the constant flurry of artillery. moscow's assault, a russian reminder nowhere inside the country is safe. this in lviv you see the orange blaze at a power substation. that makes the last 24 hours interesting. most of the fighting in the last week has been over here in the eastern part, the southern part of ukraine. lviv out in the west.
9:28 am
if you look at the new targeting in the past few days. this is central. this is where russians have attacks. a reminder from putin. that he can reach anywhere in the country if he so chooses with missiles and bombs. scott, give us the latest from the battlefield. >> reporter: john, the big concern is the fighting at that steel plant in mariupol. there is brand-new pictures that show that plan as if it's suffocated by the smoke caused by the heavy bombardth. the mayor of mariupol saying the plant is now getting hit from the air, from artillery, from tanks. they've moved a ship close to the plan to the fire on it from the deck of the ship as well. the mayor says that there are still civilians trapped underneath including 30 children as well, the fighting has been so heavy he's lost contact he says with the actual fighters on the ground. now the russians as you mentioned say that they have
9:29 am
completely sealed off that plant. there is no way to get in or to get out. but they insist that they are not storming the plant from the ground. they say vladimir putin specifically gave an order not to storm the plant. therefore, it's not being stormed. they say they are suppressing militant's attempts to take up new firing positions. all of this does not bode well for the evacuation attempts. the mayor says those children trapped inside that plant, they need a new negotiation process to begin and then after that, some kind of an evacuation operation. you mentioned as well the new air strikes overnight. this was a series of strikes overnight. the deputy mayor of lviv says that there were 18 or 19 missiles fired at the country. many of them were shot down, though, by the missile defense system in places like kiev and three of them here in lviv. i went out to one of them, quite close to the city center. we could hear the blasts from here. it was about four miles out.
9:30 am
it was right along the railway line. it was an electrical power substation hit, just a few hundred yards from an actual passenger station. a very small passenger station out on the outskirts of town. what's remarkable about these strikes is where they're hitting, in the western part of the country very far from the prime line. and what was especially surprising is the strike very far in the west and in a region, john, that has not been hit at all by anything, any kind of fighting since the war began that is, of course, until now. >> until now. scott mcclain live for us in lviv. thank you. joining our conversation a former cia bureau chief. you can do it better than most in the sense the fighting largely in the east and the south when you get these attacks everywhere, scattered everywhere in the country, particularly a power substation, along a
9:31 am
railway, in the lviv area, does that tell you about expanding or putin reminding he can hit anywhere if he so chooses? >> i think there is probably two things at work here. someone age mack propaganda piece and the other is a legitimate attempt on the part of the russians to disrupt the arms flows of the west have been managing to get into ukraine, thus providing the ukrainians a better shot at slowing down and stopping the russian army so that's one part of it. the messaging propaganda is a lot is being made and discussed the upcoming victory day celebrations in may in moscow and in russia. and it's always nice to have great pictures of big explosions, lots of smoke that can be used for russian consumption internally to show folks that, yeah, the war is going well. if you hear otherwise, it's all western propaganda. i think it's too pieces there, john. >> let's focus on that. a lot of people for weeks talked about may 9th. would putin declare victory,
9:32 am
would he declare a full war to send people in? his press secretary, mr. prescott downplaying the idea putin would declare war. explain to people why that day is so important internally for the kremlin propaganda machine and trying to keep the russian people on board with what's happening in ukraine. >> there is a russian mythology that has been really just standard, you know, stuff that russian children are taught, that russian adults are taught and bombarded with really the past number of decades, that is essentially that russia was the one that ended world war ii and got rid of hitler and the nazis. there is, historically, some truth of that they were a part of an alliance that did that. in russia, it's all russia all the times in terms of the naziings. what putin is alluding back to world war ii and russian ending of the nazi germany. putin is saying wow, it's the
9:33 am
same thing we're doing in ukraine. it sells well within russia, with regard to having to be able call up and mobilize troops that he wouldn't have been able to before a declaration of war, we have to be careful not to look at that through a western lens, putin can pick up the phone and call up everybody he wants. the duma has nothing to do with it. putin just basically does what he wants. it's possible he can do something like that during this upcoming holiday, we'll see. >> what's your take? there is a piece in the "new york times" saying, look, what happens in ukraine is brutal. they're destroying non-military targets. they are terrorizing the citizens of ukraine. many have asked why not more? why haven't we seen more cyber attacks outside ukraine or here in the united states or beyond. one of the analysts quoted in that piece says this is a strange kind of war. russia has set some strict limits for itself. this is not being explained in
9:34 am
anyway, which raises questions first of all among russian citizens. some say putin is holding things for later maybe. others say russian incompetence. he is doing everything he can. he is proving the military is not what at least he thought it was. what's your take? >> i'm not sure i'd agree, aid go no the incompetence, it's probably too strong of a word. i do think the west probably overstated or overthought what if russians could actually do. that's become clear as the russian came in and said, look, we can do the quickly. now it looks like they're in the stuck in the east and the south. that's not to say they can't simply throw more cannon fodder in terms of their own soldiers, humans, bombing out the heck of the steel plant in mariupol. i think it's more they're having trouble as opposed to putin holding back or thinking things through in a big way. >> maybe the west overstates the
9:35 am
capabilities of the russian militaries. one of your theories is putin may have underestimated the response of the west. the union saying it whethill moo a ban on all russian imports. is that enough to get putin's attention? >> it is over the long term. but his countermeasure to that is he is counting on the west losing its focus, its moral outrage to what he is doing the killing of innocence and the bombing of non-military targets. he's thinking we're going to get distracted as we often times do and in six months time, the germans and others will maybe rethink that oil piece. that's what he is playing for. whether or not that happens, i who ep the west remains focused. >> appreciate it. up next for us, the supreme court shock wave, demonstrations coast-to-coast, americans react to a draft decision that would outright eliminate abortion rights. could that fallout include a

and peacock. and we'll make this a national holiday. nay. holi-week. just say watchathon into your voice remote to watch now. the supreme court opinion, erasing the life to abortion is spoke protests. here are reactions in philadelphia, san francisco, phoenix, tallahassee and washington, d.c. no change is official until a
9:41 am
formal opinion is released. in addition to this shock, there is a giant debate how such a dramatic ruling from the high court might reshape the mid-term election year arc. vice president kamala harris offering a preview of a new democratic campaign appeal. >> those republican leaders who are trying to weaponize the use of the law against women, what we saying how dare they? how day they tell a woman what she can do and cannot do with her own body how dare they? how dare they try to stop her from determining her own future. >> cnn legal analyst joins the conversation. let's start with the potential politics there. you see the passion, the energy from vice president horizon, democrats are talking today, it's a long way to the election. they think number one there motivates women voters and especially suburban women that
9:42 am
came to the party in 2018, in 2020 might be drifting away because of immigration, inflation. younger voters, do they think this essentially reboots the campaign? >> well, they don't have a whole host of options at the moment. they are leaning into this, it is a potential gift for them. we don't know is the answer of whether or not it's enough. what we do know, john, is if you look at all the polling about the mid-term elections this cycle, democrats clearly have an enthusiasm, disadvantage. republicans are more enthused about showing up this election season. could be a thing that awagons and enliveens the democratic base, gives them something to fight for. the acute rements. maybe the younger voters come out. there is the potential for that. what i think the real question is, is it enough? is it in off to overcome the environment of inflation and the
9:43 am
economy? and the president's low standing? is it enough to overcome that overall environment or a motivator for some but cannot break through the dominant issues of the campaign. >> you see most republicans saying whether they agree or don't agree with the court decision or somewhere in the mi middle, we would rather talk about immigration, inflation. my word not yours, they have some explaining to do. there are pro choice, pro abortion rights, republican senators who voted for the nominees in question on board with this draft opinion who they say murcowski and mccullough said they promised it wouldn't turn out this way. >> they promised that in public testimony on tv and in their private meetings. i think susan collins talked extensively with gorsuch when she announced her support about the commitment that now justice gorsuch made to her in that
9:44 am
office, clearly the brunt of the scrutiny is on these two women who have often been outliers in the party because they do support abortion rights. their reaction yesterday was that if this decision ends up being the final decision, it has rocked their confidence in the court because the tone of it, but the tonef it was so different than what people like kavanaugh and gorsuch conveyed to them during their -- >> tbd if they do, we'll go state by state, there is no question, zero question about the dramatic change in american law, in policy, change in rights of american women out there right now. this is the map, we showed this yesterday, 26 states are certain or likely to ban abortion if the court overturns roe v. wade. the second map, there are 13 states that have in place these so-called trigger laws if row. v. wade is eradicated like that,
9:45 am
those states ban abortion. what is that? how fundamental, how shocking will the shift, one day have you this right. maybe wednesday you don't? >> think about illinois, the only state in america surrounded on all sides by states that have trigger laws or the zombie laws. laws that were in place before but could be revived post-roe v. wade. think of people hundreds of miles away in missouri that have to cross to illinois. if the states baring people from crossing state lines, that puts the biden administration of taking action, either in the form of lawsuits against states or changing medicaid rules to still pay for abortions across state lines dealing with the defense department and federal abortions on federal property. so there are actions that the federal government can take because of the sort of quagmire that's set up with different state governments. >> if we get back and the decision would put us there. if this decision is real,
9:46 am
meaning they issue it, no one changes their votes. you mentioned a key point some states are responding in new mexico, there will be an influx of people from other states. pennsylvania, a democratic governor, a tough climate. he wants to protect a law to protect abortion laws. oklahoma's governor has signed one of the strictest anti-abortion laws in the country. this will be state by state policy and in this year's campaign. >> speaking of california. gavin newsom put up an ad, his campaign putting this out front and center how he will protect women's rights as the cornerstone of his re-election campaign. john, you said something interesting earlier, republicans seem more eager to talk about inflation and i thought that was so interesting, our colleagues man manu raju up on capitol hill were talking about the weakness and the integrity of the court, instead of the number embrace of
9:47 am
a victory on the precipice of a victory of a 50-year quest that has been the driving force of the republican party. that they were not so interested in doing across the board. they would give it some notice but they were much more trying to talk about the leak and get back to inflation and immigration. >> because they got crushed in the suburbs in 2018 and 2020. they think they're getting those voters back. they don't want this to push them away. >> it was telling for me pen e when mitch mcconnell was telling us the leak is the story, not the substance of the decision w. all due respect to the senate minority leader, we will decide what the story is. but it was really telling why he didn't want to talk about the prospect that abortion rights could be erased nationwide. >> they're both stories. the leak is a big story. institutions have protocols and rules and bake behavior. this blows that up. the supreme court is a secretive body. the only way you can have a debate about these draft rulings is everybody argues ear position
