7:00 am
s cessna caravan. palm beach international. pbi. shallow descent, shallow turns. listen now to robert morgan who said this is all part of a lot of teamwork that took place to get this to happen so successfully. listen to him. >> i felt like i was going to, i had so much adrenaline built up but i was really happy it worked out, nobody got hurt. he was a calm person, i'm a calm person, we're kind of able to work together as a team. i had a lot of my coworkers and facilities also participating to keep everybody calm and get him to a big runway. a big target he could land. i knew that if we could get him close enough to the runway, have the power back on the plane, he'd be successful one way or another, they'd be okay.
7:01 am
>> reporter: the video out there of the landing, pretty darn good. pretty much right on the runway, right on the center line. flying my entire life, nothing has ever happened before like this in my memory. pretty remarkable and incredible. >> listen, i'm no pilot like you, pete, i've taken lessons. easy to take a plane off. not easy to land it. that's remarkable. >> hard to land. >> yeah, yeah. pete muntean, thank you so much. good morning, i'm erica hill. >> i'm jim sciutto. moments from now, president biden scheduled to leave the white house, headed to illinois where he's expected to address concerns, continuing concerns over food supply and inflation. this as new data signals inflation may have peaked but the numbers are still high. we'll break down the numbers and take you to the white house in just a moment. plus, testing the power of an endorsement from former president trump after gaining support from him, two gop
7:02 am
candidates split nights. a win and a loss. what that says as we get closer to the midterm elections and what about the issues? we're on the ground in west virginia. plus, a little later today, a key vote on capitol hill. the senate set to take up a bill that would guarantee abortion rights, a vote expected to fail. the goal here though, the strategy by democrats is to put elected leaders on the record as a supreme court appears poised to overturn roe v. wade. just ahead, i'll speak to senator elizabeth warren. >> first, to the latest on inflation. christine romans and john harwood joining us. christine, first to you. let's look at these new numbers. what do they tell us? >> reporter: inflation could be cooling here. the fire is not out, as one economist told us this morning. fire is still there, but at least the flames are not as big and that's really, really important here. over the past 12 months, inflation, 8.3%. that is a headline decline from what we saw last month and looking month over month, 0.3%
7:03 am
increase in inflation and in prices from march to april and that, again, is a little bit cooler. this is what you want to be seeing. you could see on this chart, the huge spike up that everybody felt at the gas station, the grocery store, in your rent. whatever you're trying to do costs more money over the past many months. we're hoping now this might signal the peak. looking within these numbers, gasoline, 43.6% year over year increase. we know last night, a new high for gas prices. nominal high at least for gas prices. that's not captured here. you can see used cars. anybody trying to get a car knows what that is like here. food and shelter increases there. this is something that's a problem for lower income americans and i was digging into air fares. rebound of the pandemic. up over the past three months. more than 10% above where the pandemic began because of higher jet fuel costs and american consumers are coming out of a
7:04 am
two year covid crouch and they want to spend their money, they want to travel. so a lot of this is pandemic-related, supply-chain related and hoping this might be the first stigns of cooling her. >> democratic administration adviser, he makes the point that core inflation, however, in these numbers remains high and even ahead of the previous pace. is that something economists are concerned about? >> everyone is talking about that. that little 0.6% number. a lot of people are talking about that. one month does not make a trend, and john and i say this all the time, but we've been looking and scouring for any signs of peak behavior in these numbers heading into the summer, so we'll have to just wait and see what the next one looks like. >> john, what is the president's message following this report? i don't imagine they're going to be holding any champagne parties based on a slight tick down. >> reporter: no, but i think what they're going to do, jim, is seize on the positive parts of the number. this is a report where you can
7:05 am
find good news or bad news. yes, it appears that inflation has peaked. the problem is, it's peaked at a relatively high level and the nature of inflation is changing. we see during the pandemic when people couldn't go out and do things, they spent a lot of money and pandemic relief money on goods. that's what created all that supply chain problem. now, the spending is shifting back towards services and pushing service prices up. that's a problem because services are a larger part of the economy than goods. so, i would expect the president to talk about the peaking part and the idea, which i think most economists share, that inflation is likely to decline this year, to taper off. the question is, given how high it is right now, how low can it get? does it get down to 3% or 4% by the end of the year? that would be an improvement over the current situation. but you still got the specter of the fed coming in to take stronger action. could push the economy, not this
7:06 am
year but maybe next year into recession. so lots of challenges for the administration here. i think they're going to take the half full part of that cup. >> john harwood at the white house. christine romans, thank you so much. now to politics. overnight, mixed outcome for two candidates who, among other things, had former president trump's endorsement. in west virginia, alex muni projected to win the gop nomination in the second congressional district. >> in nebraska, however, cnn projects will beat charles herbster in the primary. from charles town, west virginia this morning. what's the larger picture this morning? >> reporter: good morning, erica and jim. the republican party is still working on redefining itself in this post-trump presidency era and while it's clear that the former president still has an enormous grip on the party, it's also clear that it's not
7:07 am
absolute. particularly, when trump endorses a candidate like herb ster who is facing a slew of sexual misconduct investigations, which he denies. what's interesting about both of these races, they were both similar proxy wars. however, they yielded different results. when you look here in west virginia on one side, you had congressman alex mooney endorsed by trump and then david mckinley backed by essentially the entire establishment of west virginia politicians, including republicans and democrats like democratic senator joe manchin and mooney won easily here and quickly. the final margins were mooney at 51.2% and mckinley at 35.6%. it was abundantly clear. trump's popularity in the state is still incredibly noticeable. we saw giant signs with mooney and then slightly smaller print. it said endorsed by trump. and a different story though in
7:08 am
nebraska. on one side, an establishment candidate who ended up winning backed by the governor pete in that republican governor race, cannot run again. he is termed out. on the other side, trump endorsed charles herbster. he asked trump not to weigh in on this race. obviously, a request that trump ultimately denied. and here we saw pillen pulling this through with a win. one establishment candidate winning, one establishment candidate losing but it is important to note the direction that the republican party is going in. we even saw pillen an establishment candidate shifting some of his views to the trumpian type views, particularly when it came to critical race theory. so again, all part of a larger process of this redefinition of the party and one thing to note, this is just the beginning of a lot of primaries coming up. we have another big one on tuesday where trump has endorsed mehmet oz, the celebrity doctor
7:09 am
in pennsylvania. he is now in a three way tie. this could be the beginning of several losses or wins for the former president. >> crikristen holmes and now da chalian, good to have you. any election day, multiple issues driving it. what do you think were the decisive issues in these races? >> well, listen. you just heard kristen talk about the trump factor. in west virginia, if you look at where alex mooney put his money in the advertising, touting this affiliation with trump, with the maga world, i mean, that was front and center in this campaign. there's no doubt about that. and that obviously helped him in west virginia. i do think, it's not just looking at sort of a scorecard of trump, back to this candidate, didn't back this candidate, won and lost. the larger point kristen was getting at there, the fact that trump has, whether he's with the candidate or there's other
7:10 am
republicans in the race that are running in trump-aligned fashion, even though they don't have his endorsement, his influence on the party is seen in the state of play. he sort of dictates the terms of the campaign, both for these candidates he's endorsed and where those candidates don't have his backing, but clearly want his supporters because they make up the base of the party. >> which is why it's interesting when you look at a state like georgia, of the states we watch coming up but when we look at what's happening in georgia, when you have these establishment governors now coming in and being very vocal to push back. >> yeah, the georgia race, circle it, it's two weeks away. i think the last couple of weeks, sort of had the appetizer of primary season and the main course coming up in the next couple of weeks. in georgia, i don't think there's a person in american politics donald trump has in his sights more than brian kemp, the incumbent republican governor there who he's so vocally
7:11 am
opposed to because brian kemp did not sign on with trump's 2020 election lie and legitimately certify the election results in the state that joe biden had won there. but here is what you see, erica, when you say the establishment. we're seeing doug ducey, the governor of arizona and backed the winning candidate in that primary there yesterday. chris christie, the former governor of new jersey. all of these establishment republican governors come in to get behind kemp as is the national republican governor's association with him and they're all lined up against the former president who's backing david perdue, the former senator there. that is a big one to watch because that could potentially be a very big loss for donald trump at the end of the month if the polls bear out where they are now. >> there were democratic primaries as well. the country heads potentially for a large societal change if roe v. wade is overturned. did we see signs of how
7:12 am
democrats are going to attempt to campaign, run on roe v. wade, abortion rights, reproductive rights, et cetera? >> well, almost every democratic politician and candidate across the country is leaning into the issue and using it as an opportunity to try and remind the faithful, rally the base around the notion of, wake up, pay attention, there are really important things on the ballot. democrats are trying to expand it beyond just a conversation about abortion, suggesting other rights, privacy rights such as the right to contraception or same-sex marriage could be on the line here too. all in an attempt to try and awaken a party that has seemed pretty apathetic toward the midterm elections. i don't think we've seen anything in the primary results yet, jim, in terms of how that cuts. and it's not at all clear yet that it's going to be pure advantage democrats. we know over the last many
7:13 am
decades of american politics, this issue of abortion rights and the pro-lifers, the pro-choice movement, this is something that's proven time and again to animate republicans more, it seems, than democrats in terms of getting out and voting. the question is, now that republicans have achieved this 50 year quest potentially, if that draft opinion is the final opinion, does that change the way in which this cuts politically? we'll have to wait and see. >> we will. david chalian, always good to talk with you. thank you. >> you too, guys. still to come this morning. billions of dollars in critical aid for ukraine. now one step closer to getting to that country. this is as u.s. intel warns the war could soon become more unpredictable. and lawmakers set to go on the record today with a vote on abortion rights. senator elizabeth warren joins me to discuss the way forward for democrats if the supreme court does indeed overturn roe v. wade.

new this morning, the ukrainian president volodymyr zelenskyy is thanking congress after house lawmakers passed a nearly $40 billion aid bill. this is both weapons and humanitarian aid days before funds were set to run out. this is as many multiple previous bills. we learned this morning weapons supplied to ukraine by the u.s. and other allies are firing away on the front lines, according to the ukrainian deputy defense minister. >> ukrainian officials also say russia is diverting troops near the kharkiv region because russians are, quote, very worried about counteroffenses. here to discuss, deputy director of national intelligence and cnn national security analyst, beth, good to see you this morning. when we look at what ukrainian officials are saying about the russian troop movements, what do you read into that? >> i read into that that they have to concentrate forces in order to make some gains. they are behind schedule,
7:20 am
pentagon officials said earlier this week, they're about two weeks behind what their plans are and they're really not making the kind of gains that they need to, and that's why director haynes yesterday and general barrier talked about stalemate and prolonged war being the most likely near-term outcome. >> tell us what the prolonged war looks like along the front. we see intense fighting particularly in the central front where the yellow is on the map, russian forces trying to surround ukrainian forces. they've broken through some. ukrainian forces have tended so far to push back. are we going to see a back and forth like that for months, for years? >> well, general barrier said he did not expect a breakthrough. so, you know, i think he probably knows a little bit more than i do about this, given that they get into intelligence, but i also think there is some
7:21 am
potential underestimation of what the ukrainians are doing on other fronts. as they're pushing out from kharkiv, they are really pushing the russian forces away from that second city and so i think that they are tied down in some places. so the real key is whether enough weapons can be moved to the front lines. the air defense is moved up but also taking out some of the ships that are firing these precision-guided missiles, which, by the way, they're running out. >> i was struck too, we heard from president zelenskyy, and i'm paraphrasing, the desire to negotiate is waning and with mariupol, the successes, mayor of mykolaiv telling jim a short time ago on our air, zelenskyy is in a difficult position when it comes to potential
7:22 am
negotiations or diplomacy. what's your estimation? is that door almost closed at this point? >> i think so. i think that director haines said yesterday, they did not see a path for negotiations at this time. i've been saying that for weeks and weeks myself, because, you know, russia really cannot lose this war. they also can't, you know, accept total losses either. and right now, clearly from that parade speech that putin gave earlier this week, he is doubling down, and the ukrainians are feeling that they are winning in some places and pushing back. and they also just have public opinion that they have to deal with. ukrainians cannot and will not capitulate at this stage. they'll keep pressing. that leads us to this very
7:23 am
prolonged effort. >> let me ask you this. u.s. and nato war aims changed and expanded, frankly, since the start of russia's invasion. at first, the goal was simply to defend ukraine and now you have lloyd austin and others speaking openly about weakening russia, so that it can't do this again and in fact, whether against ukraine or another country. by doing that, have the u.s. and nato increased the risk of escalation and also, from russia's perspective, taken away the incentive to negotiate? >> yes and no, i think. as i was saying, russia can't afford to win at all costs. putin has to manage this in some way, but he can define victory as he needs to. but i think, it's not about us with a tech win in with what it
7:24 am
takes to win this war. it's about what putin wants. in terms of escalation drawing us in, that is a bit of a canard. that's what the russians want us to think. right now, we've just got to keep throwing things at the ukrainians to fight this war, but at some point, you're right. i mean, we have to come to a point where negotiations are the way out. all wars end in some way. by talking. >> yeah, and maybe being forced to the table too. beth saner, always good to have your perspective. thank you so much. coming up, abortion rights in jeopardy. a critical senate vote today to codify them expected to fail. so where do democrats go from here? a staunch defender of the rights, senator elizabeth warren, joins me next. five professional l benefits. one simple step. totally effortlessss. styling has never been easier.

today, the senate will vote on a bill to codify to federal law a woman's right to seek an abortion. it comes in the wake of the leaked supreme court draft opinion indicating justices are poised to overturn roe v. wade. the measure needs 60 votes to pass in the senate, that is currently split 50/50. majority leader chuck schumer said he'll put every member on record as to where they stand on the issue. one of the senators joins me now. democrat elizabeth warren of massachusetts.
7:30 am
senator, good to see you this morning. we know you don't have the votes. in many ways, this is symbolic to put people on record as we heard from leader schumer. senator tim caine to work across the aisle. is there common ground in the proposal or another proposal where you could get more bipartisan support for a clear bill to codify roe? >> let's just put this in some context. keep in mind that the supreme court throughout history has expanded the rights of individuals. it has made it clear that we have autonomy over our bodies. and now the supreme court for the first time is ready to reverse that and say for half the population, no, it's the government that will be making decisions. it's the government that will be
7:31 am
forcing intrusion into your body. roe v. wade is something that is supported across this country. about 69% of people say roe v. wade should be the law of the land and that's true, red states, blue states, that's true republicans, democrats. want to see preserved roe v. wade. we don't start by compromising such a fundamental constitutional right. we don't do this to half of the population. the rule of roe is what we will be voting on today and i think it's important that everybody be on record and say, do you support roe or not? >> so then, just to follow up on that point, a different bipartisan measure that we understand in the works, that's not something you would be in favor of? >> look, a measure that says, not really on roe, a measure that says, hey, the things that are going on in the states already, even before this latest
7:32 am
dust-up with texas, a measure that says, it's okay if, in south dakota, there's only one abortion clinic in the whole state. it's okay to restrict the rights of people across this country. that's not okay because keep in mind who this will fall hardest on. it's going to fall hardest on poor women. it's going to fall hardest on women of color. it's going to fall hardest on the 14-year-old who was molested by her uncle. on the rape victim, on the mama who is right now working three jobs to try to support the children she has. mitch mcconnell has taken that, recognized it's going to fall hardest on these women and said, you know, if the republicans get back in control, we're willing to open the door to make it fall on everyone all across this country. to outlaw abortion, not just in red states, but in blue states
7:33 am
as well. the scope of this is enormous and that's why this vote today is so important. are you with roe or are you against it? >> so when you talk about that scope and when you talk about the importance, you also wrote in a piece for marie claire earlier this week, republicans fought long and hard for this, we can't wait to fight back. we need action. this has been coming, right? this has been abortion, roe v. wade has been a galvanizing rallying force for republican voters for decades now. which leads me to my next question, why do democrats appear to be so flat footed in this moment without a plan? >> look. you preach to the choir. i have been raising this argument for a very long time. and the reason is because i lived in an america where abortion was illegal. i lived in an america where women died, bled to death because of back alley abortions.
7:34 am
i lived in an america where women were scarred for life because of the abortions they had. i lived in an america where young women took their lives rather than proceed with an abortion that they could not manage. i understand those risks, and i think many people across america believed not just that roe was right, but that it was enshrined in law. how many nominees to the united states supreme court stood in front of the american people and said, it's settled law? and so the people who supported roe thought reasonably, it's always going to be protected. but now? we have an extremist minority on the supreme court and they believe they can dictate to the rest of america what happens to the bodies of women. and understand this, they don't get the final word. the final word actually rests in
7:35 am
congress. so i think this is a galvanizing moment. i think this is a moment we have this vote today to get everybody on record, and then, we hold everybody accountable for those votes. >> you said you think this could be a galvanizing moment. cnn polling in the wake of the draft said overturning roe would make them very happy, twice as enthusiastic about voting in the midterms as those who said the ruling would leave them angry. last question on this, do you think that democrats can unite, a united message has not been a strong suit lately for the party. can they unite if you believe this is a galvanizing force and actually turn that into voter turnout? >> i say to everybody who is angered that to channel your anger into action. if you are genuinely angry, then do something about it. right now, there are races into the country, primary races where those who have already democrats
7:36 am
in texas, running for reelection who has opposed roe, who has not voted with the democrats to try to protect roe, who have supported the texas abortion ban. he's being challenged by a young woman named jessica. if you are angry, send jessica $10. if you can, send her $25. the whole point here is channel your anger. we can do it right now in the primaries and we can certainly do it in november. if there aren't enough democrats to get the job done today, then give us enough democrats and we will protect roe v. wade. >> senator elizabeth warren, appreciate you joining us this morning. thank you. >> you bet. >> jim? performing for a larger purpose. the ukrainian winner of the 2016 euro vision contest, huge in europe. now using her talents to help her country. she joins me next to share the story behind her winning song and what it was like to have to evacuate ukraine with her young children.
