tv   New Day Weekend With Christi Paul and Boris Sanchez  CNN  May 7, 2022 4:00am-5:00am PDT

4:00 am
good morning, and welcome to your new day, i am alex marquardt in this morning for boris sanchez. >> i'm christi paul, we're talking about president biden touting a red hot jobs report, admitting, however, that inflation is still top of mind for millions of us. we look at the soaring costs of buying a home and whether the market is starting to cool. >> there's also hope for evacuation efforts in mariupol, ukraine, that could resume today to rescue civilians trapped in underground bunkers in that besieged steel plant, azovstal.
4:01 am
this comes amid heightened fears that russia could escalate their war against ukraine. >> as the country waits to see what is going to happen in the fight over abortion rights, we're going to look at the moves states are already making in anticipation of the ruling. parents across the country are scrambling to find baby for formula. what's behind the shortage, and what's being done to replenish the supply. ♪ and a good saturday morning to all of you. it is saturday, may 7th. christie, so nice to be back with you. thank you for having me. >> we appreciate you welcoming that 1:45 alarm. i know it's not easy. >> for you, anything, and now we're going, adrenaline's flowing, got calf ffcaffeine.
4:02 am
>> we've got an hour under our belt. we can do this. thank you. let's talk about president biden. >> indeed, he is touting economic gains in the new u.s. jobs report, while visiting a manufacturing facility in ohio on friday, but he's also addressed what is at the top of mind for so many americans. that is sky high prices due to record inflation. >> yeah, cnn's jasmine wright is in wilmington, delaware. jasmine, it's always good to see you. talk to us about what more the president said, and if he is giving any indication as to how he might try to manage this. >> well, the president had a two-pronged message yesterday in ohio. first, he urged congress to pass that innovation act, something that aims to curb china's economic influence, and then second, he turned to the economy. he touted and really celebrated those jobs numbers you just mentioned, alex. 428,000 that were added to the economy in yesterday's job report as well as those historic low unemployment rates, and now he tied those two things to
4:03 am
something that is on the mind of all americans these days, which are these higher prices that they are paying every day because of inflation. take a listen to him here in ohio. >> i know you're worried about the price of gas, food, and other necessities, and why it matters if we make more things here in america. well, it matters a great deal because the pandemic and the economic crisis that we inherited and putin's war in ukraine have all shown the vulnerability when we become too reliant on things made overseas. >> reporter: so there we heard that white house line that is due to president putin's price hike, something that they have used time and time again to really explain to americans why they are seeing these recent price hikes when they go to the grocery store, go to the gas pump, when they pay for those everyday services and goods, but one thing that is still out there is whether or not this is
4:04 am
working, especially when it comes to a recent cnn poll that showed that less than a third of americans really feel that this party's economic visions aligns with their own. so that is something, a crushing thing for this administration to deal with as it really prepares to take on the midterm elections. alex, christi. >> jasmine wright, we appreciate the update. thank you, jasmine. >> if you are in the market to buy a home, you're probably feeling the crunch. mortgage rates rising again this week to their highest level since 2009. just to put it in perspective here for you, rates on a 30-year fixed mortgage rose more than two points from this time last year. we are now sitting at 5.27% with home prices at record highs, as you know, these rate increases have forced a lot of people to just give up the process of buying a home altogether. the question is is this red hot housing market beginning to see a cooldown. danielle hale is with us now, chief economist for
4:05 am
so good to have you with us. let's talk about that, first of all. give us some prognostication for the trajectory of this market at this point. >> well, christi, the housing market has been red hot. we've got a lot of buyers overall, low mortgage rates in the last year or so really brought a lot of them out, and that's combined with the long-term demographic trends that we're seeing. we've got a lot of young households that are at ages where they're typically thinking of settling down, and that combination of economic opportunity and demographic opportunity really led to a surge in the housing market, but we've seen that change as mortgage rates have risen, costs have risen, they're up more than 50%. for the median priced home, that's more than $550 a month in a mortgage payment that people are paying now more than they would have paid last year, and that's causing a lot of shoppers to rethink their budgets. if you're shopping in the housing market and you haven't taken a look mortgage rates and how it's maybe impacted your
4:06 am
preapproval, if you've gotten a preapproval that's a couple of months old, the changes are happening rapidly in the market right now. >> what are those -- because of the mortgage rates we're seeing, what are you seeing in terms of sale prices? because i know that there are many, many markets where people are having to pay six figures over asking price just to secure a home. do you see that continuing? >> so we don't see it continuing, but i will say there aren't a ton of signs that it's stopped yet. if we look at home prices, for instance, we do expect price growth to slow, maybe not to fall because we've got such a demand, supply imbalance, but we do expect that price to slow. so far at least we haven't seen it. home prices that people are asking when they put their homes up for sale are continuing to grow by double-digits. it's likely that we're seeing some softening in the amount over that asking price that people are paying, but i think the reality in the housing market right now is that it's still relatively high priced, and so shoppers in the market
4:07 am
want to keep that in mind. this is likely to change because of the extra costs from higher prices and mortgage rates, but for now prices are still high. >> this is something i wanted to ask you about. for all the people out there looking to purchase a home, what is the expectations that these homes and the prices they're paying will hold that value say in the next couple of years? because this is such a unique -- it seems like such a unique inflated time. >> yeah, it is a really unique time. so there are some long-term trends that are definitely in the favor of home prices staying where they are or even climbing higher, and that is if you look over the last decade, we've built 5.8 million fewer single family homes than we've had households formed. we're in a real long-term shortage situation in the housing market. we build about 1.2 million single family homes a year. so we're five years behind when it comes to single family home building. even if we see demand slow, which is likely given the higher
4:08 am
costs, i think we still got a big under supply, and so that's going to keep prices elevated, even though we might see a much slower pace of growth just because costs had risen, and it's difficult to pay those higher housing costs alongside the cost of all the other goods and services buyers are grappling with, higher gas, groceries, child care costs. you were talking about inflation earlier, that's a real phenomenon people have to consider when making a home purchase. >> what is the number one piece of advice or guidance you would give to somebody who's buying a home right now or hoping to? >> so if you're in the market to buy a home right now, the market's still pretty competitive and fast moving. that may change a bit as we see fewer shoppers into the -- as we move into the summer and people realize sort of how those costs have impacted their budgets. the thing is, know what your budget is. know what you can afford. get prequalified -- or i'm sorry, premoapproved for a mortgage so that you know the mortgage bank has signed off on that amount and you're looking
4:09 am
at the right price target and make sure the amount is right for you. if it's not something you can live with day-to-day month to month, if it's a pinch on your spending, maybe you want to reconsider that and lower your price target so you can be comfortable with the amount. >> very good advice. danielle hale, we appreciate your expertise and you sharing it with us this morning. thank you. >> absolutely. this morning south korean authorities are strongly condemning north korea for firing a suspected short range whethe ballistic missile likely launched from a north korean submarine into the waters off the east coast of the korean peninsula. south korea's joint chiefs of staff say that it along with u.s. intelligence are analyzing the launch and that the south korean military is maintaining what they're calling a state of readiness. saturday's launch comes days after another ballistic missile test by north korea. that took place on wednesday. saturday's projectile marks the country's 14th missile launch in just the first few months of
4:10 am
2022. now, moving on to ukraine where evacuation efforts were supposed to resume today at that battered steel plant that we've been watching so closely, the azovstal steel plant in mariupol. ci 50 civilians were freed from there yesterday. so far no signs of the evacuations have started again today. at least 100 civilians including a number of children remain trapped in the plant's underground bunkers. >> we have to point out the steel plant is also the last stand for ukrainian troops in mariupol. president zelenskyy says he is working right now on diplomatic efforts to save military forces that still remain in that complex, be ut relatives are in real fear that time is running out. >> it's so painful for me, people can't just be silent about the horrors happening there. they don't have days there. they are counting the minutes. >> president zelenskyy has accused russia of using blockades as a kind of torture,
4:11 am
he says, including starvation. zelenskyy says the organizations are not being allowed to get into mariupol to give badly needed food, water, and all kinds of other supplies. >> so we want to go live to ukraine with you right now, international correspondent scott mclean is in lviv. scott, good to see you this morning. update us, will you please, on the evacuation efforts there at the plant and what you're hearing about any future plans to try to help. >> hey, christi, yeah, so no official word on the status of those evacuations, which were supposed to resume today, but that may actually be a good sign. ukrainian officials have been trying to say precious little, if anything at all, about these evacuations until they actually have concrete word that people have been able to get out. yesterday it was late in the day when the russians announce 50 people were able to be evacuated from underneath the plant, including some children. later on the ukraine ians confirmed that they were able to pull 50 people or so out from
4:12 am
underneath the plant. it turns out those 50 people are the same 50 people. they've been taken to a russian reception center or filtration center. the plan today is for those evacuations to resume to get out the potentially hundred or so other civilians who are still there. the goal is to get them out, to link up with other evacuees from the broader city, and then go east to this russian filtration center. it is a pretty strang plan, a pretty strange strategy to take people east when most people will surely opt to go west towards ukrainian held territory. ukraine's deputy foreign minister says this is all part of russia's propaganda. >> they say, oh, ukrainian army, they are committing propaganda saying that ukrainian army has been shelling the city, and then they open up their territory, the russian territory for evacuation, but indeed and in fact, it's called forcible deportation when they bring thousands of ukrainians via
4:13 am
russian territory, thus depicting themselves as saviors. >> reporter: now, the deputy minister there also shed some light on how difficult and how dangerous these evacuations can be saying that about 34,350 evacuation corridors have been agreed by both sides since the war began, but barely half of those have been successful. it just goes to show you the level of danger we're talking about and the delicacy of these negotiations. alex, christi. >> and scott, in just two days' time, russia as well as ukraine, but russia is going to be marking victory day, which is the day that they commemorate the victory against nazis in world war ii. we're all going to be watching red square closely that day to see what president putin has to say, and there are concerns, as you know, scott, that putin may step up his campaign against ukraine. >> reporter: yeah, there's a lot of concern that putin will want to use the symbolism of this day, this victory over nazi
4:14 am
germany to announce something new because, of course, the russians have framed this war as a denatsification operation in ukraine, something the ukrainians obviously strongly deny. and so the president is warning people to be on high alert if vladimir putin is to formally declare war or announce an escalation of hostilities saying that people should not ignore air raid sirens in their cities. the mayor of kyiv is also asking people to be on high alert saying that patrols in the city will be stepped up saying that missile strikes are very likely on sunday and into monday anywhere across the country. >> all right, we will all be watching. scott mclean in lviv, ukraine, thank you very much. now, as the u.s. waits to see how the supreme court will ultimately rule on roe versus wade, we've got a look at the so-called trigger laws that will immediately impact millions of

4:20 am
appa appalling. the repeal of roe would impact women across the u.s. immediately. >> yeah, patchwork of old and new state laws would go into effect and could lead to some confusion. cnn's jessica schneider explains. >> we want to outlaw abortion in the state of oklahoma. >> nearly two dozen states are on the brink of banning abortion, and it will happen almost immediately if the supreme court overturns roe v. wade. 13 states have trigger laws, abortion bans that will go into effect once roe is off the books. nine states have so-called zombie laws, abortion bans that were never repealed once roe took effect in 1973. these bans would go back into effect if the conservatives on the court eliminate that constitutional right to abortion. >> that very moment prosecutors around the state could begin prosecuting doctors and i would argue potentially women as well. >> michigan's law makes no exception for rape or incest,
4:21 am
but it would allow abortions to save the mother's life, but the republican running for attorney general in michigan says he would prosecute even if abortion was performed in an effort to save the mother. >> well, what about the life of the mother? okay. you have an exception for rape? i said i do not because there is literally no medical diagnosis that says that if the mother's life is in danger abort the baby. >> that's one example of how uncertain the enforcement could be. and will instead leave it to local district attorneys. >> it's my view that we have problems that we need our law enforcement to be dealing with like violent crime, drug traffickintra trafficking and we don't need them to shift their focus from those important efforts to going after people for allegedly violating a ban that nobody had
4:22 am
understood to believe enforceable for almost 50 years. >> the wide ranging prosecutorial approach reflects just how uncertain and uneven the legal landscape would be in a post-roe world. >> i think the most important and difficult question is going to be whether states can reach out of their own borders to prosecute people or whether states are going to prosecute patients for having abortions as louisiana seems to be doing. >> louisiana lawmakers passed a bill out of committee this week that would classify abortions as homicides, leaving the door open for patients to be prosecuted, and then there's the question about how officials would even find out about illegal abortions. privacy advocates are now raising the alarm that people's google searches could be used against them or their own cell phones. third parties can buy data from google and perform reverse searches that could enable law enforcement to track who was at an abortion clinic and when.
4:23 am
>> if a prosecutor goes and gets a court order to get this type of data or they go and try to buy this data on the open market, for example, which is another thing that happens, then they would know information about the advice that was there, the. >> legal experts are scrambling to fully understand all of the implications of a post-roe america, and many say rather than the supreme court's likely decision being the final word, it could instead spur a flurry of state by state legal fights in the years ahead. jessica schneider, cnn, washington. >> our thanks to jessica schneider for that report. a judge is saying that republican representative marjorie taylor greene should not be disqualified over her role in the january 6th insurrection. >> this is a recommendation, but it is a significant legal blow to the voters and advocacy groups who tried to throw her off the ballot. here's cnn's ryan nobles. >> this is a significant win for marjorie taylor greene, the fire
4:24 am
brand republican member of congress from georgia who is facing the real prospect of being removed from the ballot for the upcoming election that's taking place in georgia. her primary scheduled for may 24th. this is a group of liberal activists who challenged her ability to be on the ballot saying that she constitutionally shouldn't be able to participate because she participated in an insurrection. it lent to a lengthy court battle, a federal judge allowed the process to go through, but it was a state court judge who listened to a marathon of testimony from both sides on this issue, including three hours of testimony from green herself, and ultimately decided to side with green, citing in a 19-page statement that rendered his decision that, quote, challengers have produced insufficient evidence to show that representative green engaged in that insurrection after she took the oath of office on january 3rd, 2021. this is just a recommendation by this state court judge.
4:25 am
it doesn't have a binding purpose in terms of whether or not she'll stay on the ballot. the ultimate decision will have to be made by the secretary of state, brad rafensberger. he is a republican but someone who's shown a willingness to buck the former president donald trump who put enormous pressure on him to find a way to delay or decertify the election in georgia. but it's unlikely that raffensperger is going to buck the decision of this judge in this case, especially given all the effort that went into this court hearing. so if raffensperger agrees with the judge, it's likely that greene will stay on the ballot. the activists have one more opportunity, they could appeal this decision to a state court, but their time window is dwindling. the primary in this particular race happening on may 24th. and greene not expected to have any kind of electoral problem here. she's in a very republican-heavy district. she is still enjoying wide
4:26 am
popularity among republicans especially in her district. so this a huge win for her beating back this challenge and we should also point out that there are a number of cases like this playing out in courts and in secretary of states office across the state, across the country i should say. this was the one that had the most promise from the activist standpoint trying to find some sort of accountability for january 6th. the fact that they were unsuccessful here makes it likely that they probably won't find success anywhere else in the country as well. ryan nobles, cnn on capitol hill. our thanks to ryan nobles up on capitol hill. still to come this morning, multiple suicides on the same aircraft carrier now raising concerns about mental health in the military. we'll have a look at the stigma surrounding seeking help. that's next. . “let's get you on some antibiotics right away.” we could bring it right to your door. with 1 to 2 day delivery from your local cvs. or same day if you need it sooner. but aren't you glad you can also just t swing by to pick it up,

aircraft carrier to a facility in virginia after several crew members died by suicide. now, over the past 12 months seven crew members on board that ship there, the u.s.s. george washington have died including four of them by suicide. three of those suicides happened in less than one week, which has prompted calls for immediate action. now, the navy is investigating the command climate and culture on board that aircraft carrier and is working to provide those on board with other accommodations as the ship continues to undergo a lengthy overhaul process before it can go back out to sea. the director of the institute for veteran and military suicide prevention at the university of memphis is david rudd. he is here with us now. thank you so much for joining us this morning on this very sensitive and important topic. >> yeah, my pleasure. >> david, we noted investigations are still underway, but when you see a string of suicides like this in a very small, isolated location,
4:32 am
this ship, what does that immediately tell are you? >> well, it raises issues about probably broader cultural concerns that need to be addressed, and i think now certainly with this step in moving the soldiers, it's a recognition and an acknowledgment of some of those concerns, and probably some of those cultural concerns are a little bit more of a challenge for the department of defense across service branches, not just the navy. >> but are there cultural concerns that are specific to something like a ship and in this case this ship has several thousand people on it when it's sailing? >> yeah, i think that, you know, certainly the disrepair in the living conditions that had been described on the ship are a very significant concern, the lack of responsiveness to those conditions for the soldiers raised some very serious concerns, and then i think that there have been reports in one case of an individual that actively reached out, attempted
4:33 am
to pursue care and the wait time for services for mental health services was six months or more. that kind of a wait time, those kinds of delayed responses certainly reinforced this idea of stigma that makes it difficult for people to get care. >> and that is so important, this notion of stigma particularly in the military. my colleague brianna keilar asked the pentagon press secretary john kirby about that very thing just yesterday. take a listen to what he had to say. >> it's important that we continue to try -- i mean to take mental health seriously here. there's still a stigma in the military about seeking help when you're struggling, and we've got to do a better job getting rid of that stigma. >> john kirby and his boss, the secretary of defense lloyd austin, have talked about this subject extensively about how seriously they're taking it. what do you think the military can do to try to kick that
4:34 am
stigma? >> well, i think it's going to be a collection of things, and more than likely, it's going to be some of these smaller things. it's not the big things. it's the smaller steps that we need to take. it's things like a six-month waiting time to get a mental health appointment. there is a natural conflict between department of defense values, warrior culture values, and when people -- when people demonstrate normal human vulnerability, and it feels like a failure in that context. you know, if you look at dod values, they reinforce the idea of selfless sacrifice, personal courage, and then when soldiers have emotional challenges that are normal emotional challenges, it really raises concerns that somehow they're not meeting the standard, they're not meeting the mark, and then if you have to wait six months to get assistance, it reinforces that idea. so it's going to be the smaller things that we need to take -- we really need to watch, we need to take steps to correct. >> does that mean because of --
4:35 am
does that mean that troops are more susceptible to those emotional challenges than civilians are, and that could lead to a higher rate of suicide? >> it doesn't necessarily mean that they are more vulnerable. it means that the vulnerability that you see in the general population is what you see in the military. after two decades of war in iraq and afghanistan and high operational tempo for two decades, it's certainly challenges, stresses soldiers in very significant ways, and i think you see that in the escalating suicide rates continuously over the course of the last decade, and it's evidence of a broader problem, and we need to have policies in place that really respond to that, not only do we need to allow ready access to care and quick access to care, issues about privacy, issues about confidentiality, all of that needs to be addressed. >> yeah, and the pentagon admits that there is more that they can do and insists that they are
