good. you're getting it. who wouldn't be numb? you see where you're driving. you got to be nervous. >> that is wade's son learning to drive in a 300,000 dollar ferrari! >> i learned in a ford escort on the back road of ohio. >> i learned in a dodge airys k. they don't make those any more! >> i was in a ford. i don't think he and gabrielle union have a lot of normal cars around for his son to drive. >> thank you, andy. >> thanks. thousands of counterdemonstrators converging on boston. >> nothing is burning. nothing is stolen. nothing is looted. this is a victory today to stand together and drive away racism. >> boston strong! boston strong! >> we need to choose the direction. we need to move as a nation and that should be one of unity. >> we can sit here and hold our breaths for a minute is all we can do.
4:01 am
countdown to total eclipse coast-to-coast. >> like. i don't think you really should thirty-two at the sun. >> no, you shouldn't. >> it might burn your eye. >> guys, monday is the big solar eclipse. experts have issued some warnings. prepare yourself ahead of time and don't look direct at it and not to watch for too long. wait! i'm sorry. they are talking about trump's press conferences. >> announcer: this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. good morning to you. we start with breaking news. another nuclear threat from north korea this morning. >> pyongyang is ready to strike at any time. blaming the u.s. for driving the two countries to the brink of nuclear war. let's get straight now to cnn international correspondent paula hancocks live in seoul. this threat comes hours before the beginning of military drills between the u.s. and south
4:02 am
korea? >> that's right. >> reporter: it is monday when these u.s. south korean military drills start and every time there is military drills, north korea react and up the ante and are infur yiated about these drills. we have heard them suggest this is pushing korea to a nuclear war. we have heard this before but we are starting from a much higher level of tensions than we have been in previous years. we also heard from an article in a north korean state-run newspaper. they mentioned vice president pence by name as well talking about when he was asking latin american countries to stop their support or any dealings with north korea and they call that a selfishness, arrogance, and outrageous interference so a special mention for the u.s. and not happy what he is saying as
4:03 am
well. when you look at the drills that start on monday, they carry on for ten days. we hear from the you there will be about 17,500 military personnel along with south koreanss and other countries. it's a computer simulation than live fire or massive amphibious landing we have seen certainly in the springtime. potentially, there are less provocative pictures as far as north korea is concerned but we will see how they react. back to you. >> paula hancock in seoul, thank you so much. north korea issues new threats against the u.s., president trump is getting back to washington today. >> the end of what has been a really turbulent two weeks away from the white house. the west wing is refreshed and renovated and ready for the president when he arrives this evening. cnn white reporter jeremy diamond joins me now. the president was a lot more
4:04 am
vocal on twitter yesterday about a free speech rally and counterprotest in boston. tell us what he said. >> reporter: the president said he needed to wait for the facts which is why he didn't immediately contdemn them by name. yesterday we saw something different take place as the president took to twitter, as the rally was still ongoing, to go ahead and slam, quote, anti-police agitators on twitter, despite the fact the protests yesterday in boston, many of them counterprotesting against a free speech rally that was protesting for the right for anti-white supremacists to protest and those were peaceful yesterday largely. actually, an hour or so after the president tweeted that initial statement slamming anti-police agitators is sounds like somebody got in his ear and the president took to twitter to applaud the protesters. he tweeted i want to applaud the
4:05 am
many protesters in boston who are speaking out against bigotry and hate. our country will soon come together as one. the president also tweeted that he believes the country has been divided for decade and that perhaps sometimes protests may be necessary to help the country heal. >> jeremy diamond, thank you so much. lynn sweet, of the chicago sun times, errol louis, political anchor for spectrum news, both with us now. thank you fok here. lynn, what is the first thing the president tackles? >> when he gets back? >> uh-huh. >> well, on his to-do list is getting ready when congress comes back to deal with tax reform, trying to see if he could rehabilitate some relations with the republican senators who are alienated in this time to see if he can get 50 votes to pass this legislation. also on his to-do list what does he want to do to structure his white house in the wake of
4:06 am
disbanning his counsels he was going to reach out and corporate and business america, and what is he going to do -- this is something i think we should keep his eye on -- you know, there is a saying close you keep your friends close and your enemies closer? i'm not saying that steve bannon is an enemy of the trump white house but with him on the outside i think we are going to see some new story lines emerge here and new things to look at. just think how extraordinary it is, a senior adviser hours within leaving the white house is running a big media corporation. you didn't see sean spicer jump back into the public eye so soon. i think it may ab white house still struggling to be on the offensive and instead of react to go events because as we know in the last few days, they haven't been able to push. but one other thing when you ask what is on his to-do list to see if he can get this infrastructure plan off the ground and running an built support the coalitions you need to get something done. >> very good. i want to talk to you about the
4:07 am
nuclear -- i'm sorry. the north korean nuclear threat they are pushing out this morning. we know these drills are an annual event. the u.s. and south korea does this every year. i want to look what north korea said last year about this. the spokesman from military last year said this. the threats seem to be the same. the military xerexercises are a annual thing. the only thing is that president trump is in office. is that of concern? >> yes. certainly. what has changed, in fact, is that we have now got an american president who is answering in kind the sort of bombastic comic book talk. the boasts and empty threats and the ruin and raining down fire and all of this kind of stuff.
4:08 am
so it certainly doesn't help. some of the -- at the military level, some of the connections that were in place, however, tentative, just to make sure that accidents don't escalate and turn into a complete disaster, some of those connections needs to be restored and, if anything, strengthened. there is a little bit of concern there as well. i guess, finally, you know, on his way out the door steve bannon made some remarkable statements on the record to bob kutner what is and is not possible with the saber rattling. some of this we have to get some clarity from this white house and with all of those generals who are running around, including the new chief of staff at the white house, i'm hoping that we will hear something that is clear and coherent that sort of takes us a step or two back toward safety because nobody wants to hear the kind of talk that we are hearing from the american president and north korea an dictator while people
4:09 am
in the field with real weapons and doing real drills. >> we could hear something as early as tuesday when the president is in phoenix. it is being reported this morning that before he makes it to that rally in phoenix, the president is actually stopping in yuma at the marine base there. that is on the mexican border and plays into his conversations about grags. what do you make of that strategic move? >> i take it that this whole trip out west, one of the -- this is the furtherest west that trump has gone since he has become president, i believe. and it is very rare for him to go west of the mississippi. it is working to the base again. i think nothing seems to jar or not jar the base staying with him locally, but in the other side of it, i think if he go to the border, it only shows that his central promise that he is going to build a wall and have
4:10 am
mexico pay for it shows no sign of being kept in congress because the budget that congress is going to be looking at and what they are taking up has the u.s. paying for the first payments fost wall. it shows he is going back to a very core theme and the sense i have of this is that he wants to continue to play to the base at a time when he is also stressing he and attorney general jeff sessions stripping federal funding to cut crime in the so-called sanctuary cities. >> errol this was written by roberts. she said in asking why he is coming to phoenix. what is your money on? >> i say all of the above, actually. he certainly does rely on the
4:11 am
rallies to sort of present a public imagine, if only for a few minutes or certainly for himself as well. but president who is in command at least of his base. if he can't be the president of a unified country he can serm be the president of his base. he does that all the time. the notion that he would pick that as the location to pardon or at least speak some nice word about the maycounty sheriff is likely possible. he wants to weigh in the politics of it. border politics as lynn said is really core to the trump brand. if he can't pull this off in the right way, it will be one more political setback after a week in which he's had quite a few. >> lynn sweet and errol louis, always grateful to have you here. >> thank you. >> tune in monday night, tomorrow night, a special cnn event coming at you after losing
4:12 am

4:21 am
so much, miguel. >> allison chinchar keeps bringing us these glass and we are bitter. she brings us these glasses to show everybody and they are cool and everything. >> you look good in them. >> i feel fashionable here. however, we have to give them back after every shot. when i say give them back, we had these last hour. we had to return them before receiving them again for this shot! and now we have got to give them back immediately after this. >> they are under guard. >> the sad part they probably cost $2 to make but we have them under lock and key because so many people. a lot of places have run so so many people are asking. i think in the last 24 hours i've had at least a dozen people ask me if those could go missing the ones that the weather department are using. this is a big event. everybody wants to this. a very select few will be able to. that is going to start in oregon around 1:15 eastern time.
4:22 am
okay? so you have to change your time zone for this. eventually hit around kansas city at 2:00 eastern time. and then eventually cross past charleston, south carolina, just shortly before 3:00 in the afternoon. but the ultimate question that everybody wants to know is what is the weather going to be like? because if you have rain, if you have cloud, you're not going to get the best view for that eclipse. here is what we have. out to the west, states like oregon and idaho and even into wyoming, rain is not going to be a factor. however, especially in oregon you may have some haze from some of the wildfire smoke that is out there. technically that will not ruin your eclipse viewing. if anything it may change the coloring a little bit maybe to a mitt bit red or orange hue because of the smoke and haze's effect on that coloring. when you move further east that changes entirely. we have not just some rain chances in the forecast for places like kansas city and des
4:23 am
moines and lincoln but damaging winds and potential for isolated tornado or two and large hail. if you're in those reason have your weather alerts ready if you need to pack up the camping equipment and go to to a safe place. to the south and east places like columbia and charleston, south carolina, a potential for a few isolated showers and thunderstorms in the forecast here. the question is going to be some place like nashville where it's not supposed to rain until late at night, but you may have some cloud that develop ahead of time. we talked about this ahead of time. it's like the folks that say i can't get sun burned. it's cloudy out. even if it's cloudy during the eclipse you have to have the glasses. make sure that you still have these on. if you are in totality, you can take these off once everything lines up perfectly for, say, about that one and a half to two-minute time frame. until then you have to keep glasses on. so just make sure that you have a pair. if you don't, check your local

animal shelters. a lot of them are taking charities so that might be the best choi. >> where can i get a boat? >> i can't get glasses so i certainly can't get a boat! >> allison, thank you. let's turn to a serious story here. north korea issuing another nuclear threat. we go inside the air base in south korea where pilots say they are ready. also, another charity has pulled the plug on an event at the president's florida resort. we will tell you what that means on.

>> i'm victor blackwell. president trump returns to washington today as north korea renews its threats to the u.s. >> u.s. says it is ready to merciless strike and blames the u.s. for driving the two countries to the brink of nuclear war. this mark end of a turbulent working vak vacation for the president after his widely criticized mark of the rally in charlottesville last weekend. remember, he blamed many side for the violence which included an act of domestic terror by a neonazi. since then a growing list of charities and organizations are cancelling events his mar-a-lago resort. the exits continue this weekend. yesterday, the palm beach preservation foundation became the latest customer to drop out. they say, quote, given the current environmental surrounding mar-a-lago, we have made the decision to move our annual dinner dance. cnn senior economics analyst and former trump campaign economic adviser stephen moore is with
4:30 am
us. here is a look at the organizations that have cancelled at mar-a-lago. some big names on here. names that have gone to mar-a-lago for years to have their galas and fund-raisers and now they are pulling out. what can the president do, if anything, at this point? >> well, the good news is the economy is absolutely booming right now. and that is what this election was mostly about and if you look at the latest forecast for gdp growth is in the third quarter we are halfway through that. up to 3.8%. so the core of trump's mission, which was to get america working again and to get growth up, he's certainly accomplishing big league as he would say. these cancellations of things and the fallout from his comments last week are -- look. i don't want to get into that too much because i think it's been very unfortunate and i know
4:31 am
donald trump very well. i know his supporters very well. they are not racist. he made some unfortunate comments that i think were taken a little bit out of context but i think this will pass. >> here is what has to be tackled here. we know that health care did not pass. manufacturing jobs was dissolved after business titans i think were people that the general public looked at and thought these are his people. these are the people that trump associates with, that he relates to and they broke away from him. what does this mean then for the president's economic plan, for tax reform, for job, for infrastructure? >> great question. first of all, let me correct you to one thing. these business leader, the problem was they weren't his people. in fact, i had warned donald trump and the white house that i thought they were making a mistake and putting a lot of these business ceos on these councils who were never for
4:32 am
trump in the first place. in fact, many of them actively opposed him. i warned that a lot of these people, as soon as there was controversy and let's face it, controversy follows donald trump in everything he says and i said they would run for the high grass and exactly what happened. having been an adviser to trump on the economy and being a part of a couple of his economic -- he has a number of these kind of economic battles, i get called every day from ceos saying, i'll serve. i really love the kind of things that trump is doing for the economy, so i don't think there insy shortage of prominent ceos of who would serve on these if trump were to reengage these. these panels were meant for trump to listen to the ceos and hear about their concerns. how do you create jobs and what are the impediments of growing your business. more him listening than
4:33 am
dictating to the ceos what he was going to do. in terms of tax reform i think trump has to get this done. an imperative that tax reform get done this year. it may be a scaled back measure that cuts the tax rates for families and businesses but i think a lot of the anticipation of this tax cut happening, which i believe will be very good for the economy, a lot of that is built in to the stock market right now. we have seen record high on the stock markets. a lot of that is anticipation of these tax cuts coming. so if you don't get the tax cut done you may get a sell-off in stocks. >> there is one other thing looming on september and october several deadline driven issues but one must pass is a country's debt ceiling. >> you got it. >> how does he tackle that that? >> that is going to be brutal. always is. i've lived through a lot of these debt ceilings and i tell
4:34 am
you they will get a debt ceiling passed but how, i don't think anybody knows. one question as well, will democrats in congress vote for a debt ceiling increase? a lot of them scolded republicans for voting against debt ceilings when with barack obama was president so let's see if democrats step up and vote for a debt ceiling. how you put 218 votes together in the house and 51 in the senate to get a debt ceiling passed, it's a very difficult thing because nobody in congress likes to vote for ray the debt ceiling. not a good vote. >> no doubt. stephen moore, good to have your voice here. thank you. >> thank you. tens of thousands of feet above south korea, american pilots say they are ready for north korea. next, we are going inside the u.s. air base miles from the dmz where troops are prepared. ♪ sailin' away on the crest of a wave, it's like magic ♪

4:48 am

scientists, because i went to my first eclipse in 2001 and i've had contact with them. so they knew about my app. they are going to be running two main observing sites, one in kentucky and one in tennessee, where they plan to play my app through the p.a. system, so that all of the basic announcements are taken care of for them and they don't have to worry about making the basic announcements about observation for the change in temperature or the change in lighting and counting down to the exact contact times. and also my app makes announcements for when it is safe to take your solar glasses off just after second contact. and a reminder to put them back on just before third contact. and that is very important. it just takes a little pressure off of the folks running those two observing sites to have that be automated. >> we only have about 30 seconds left. tell us about the solar bands, what are they?
