tv Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs CNN January 2, 2018 2:00am-2:59am PST
agreements, it is cold, very cold, and it's going to stay that way at least through the weekend. "early start's" coverage begins right now. good morning everyone and welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. the president coming up from mar-a-lago where it's like 75 degrees or something. >> that's a wicked change of pace there. if you saw those shots of niagara falls there, just spectacular. it's tuesday, january 2. 1:30 in teheran. we'll check in on the protests shortly. president trump back in washington facing a full and challenging agenda. the january alone, what to do about dreamers, infrastructure, entitlements, children's health care and keeping the government funded. four weeks from today he gives his first state of the union. >> four weeks from today. 44 weeks from today the midterm elections that will hang over many of the political decisions you'll see this year. at his annual new year's eve
bash in har a lag go, the president made this prediction. >> it's going to be a great 2018. something very, very special. it's all kicking in. everybody's going to love what's happening with our country because we're taking this big beautiful ship and we're slowly turning it around. like to do it faster. >> before he can get to work on domestic issues, facing some international kries is h international crisis. antigovernment protests in iran. rebuffing president trump saying an american president who once called iranians terrorists has no right to sympathize now. >> the reaction tweeting the great iranian people have been repressed for many years, adding time for change. white house approach being closely watched when protests erupted in iran in 2009, president obama responded
cautiously concerned about blow-back. of course -- >> at the time the oh bo manyba approach was -- officials believe president trump is striking the right tone. >> in retro spect i think we made a mistake. i think we should have made it clear that in fact the world was watching. >> senior international correspondent nick paton walsh monitoring the protests for us this morning. nick, they report nine more killed overnight bringing the death toll to 21. any sign of this slowing down? >> reporter: not at this point. you have to be concerned at how it's near doubling in about the last night or so. i should point out most of the people seemed to have died around one incident. it appears to have been some sort of incident involving setting fire to a police station. weapons also involved in neighboring incidents
responsible for that nine or so new death. 400-plus arrested as well in the past few days, it appears too. so the real issue being when does that moderate government of the president. the you have repeatedly talked about how the grievances, and referring to this being inside the family reminding people the difference between protest the and rioting. when is that moderate part of the government just won substantial victory. in iran's government to more traditionally used more repressive methods to crack down on protests like this. the iranian's government's response so far compare tativel measured compared to what we've seen in the past. many recognized saying indeed of course these are economic, these are political but at the same time this is a movement without a key leader. it makes it hard to calm things
down through negotiations, some might say the hope being cooler heads prevail and we see the slow down in h the days ahead. >> all right. 1:30 there. 10:00 in the morning no london. thanks. also confronting president trump in h the new year, the nuclear threat from north korea. even as he threatened the u.s. again kim jong-un extended an olive branch to south korea and it appears seoul is ready to talk. let's bring in paula hancock. the significance here. >> reporter: it is significant because north korea has suggested talked and south korea has said yes, even suggested a date. we heard from the government this yaafternoon saying they're happy with january 9. the border village. we don't know whether north
korea will agree to those terms. but the south korean government has said if they don't, then they are willing do look at other times, other dates and context. so they really are trying to bend over backwards in h order to be able to say yes to north korea to start this conversation. we heard from the south korean president, he said that he believed that this could lead to actually talking about more than just the olympics. this is what they want to talk about to start with but it could go on to denuclearize. we've heard a positive response from china as well. they have long said they want dialogue between north korea and the other parties saying it is a good thing. but of course it really depends what north korea wants to do. they still have that nuclear defiance when it um, can the to the knigh united states. they won't use those nuclear weapons unless there is aggression against them. christine? >> certainly a cricky and
dangerous start. thanks so much. >> joining us live this morning a commentary writer for the washington examiner. good morning. >> happy new year. >> thanks for having me. >> we all get back from vacation and get overwhelmed by our to do list. let's start with all the foreign policy crises he is facing this morning. he's going to try to tweet about these, but you need to lead with an overall foreign policy. what do you think his approach is first on south korea? >> on south korea, it's encouraging when you have an irrational actor acting some what ration so it's very good that south korea has agreed. let's not -- obviously this is an attempt to drive a wedge between seoul and washington. after all, kim jong-un talked about that. we need to know what this is and
expect you're probably not going to have that big of a diplomatic break through. the only thing certain is if they do -- his athletes will generally do poorly. they don't turn out the best olympians. >> for those of you who were not watching the sunday shows, this what is was said about what is still a very dangerous moment with north korea. listen. the. >> we're actually closer, in my view, to a nuclear war with north korea and in that region than we've ever been and i just don't see how -- i don't see the opportunities to solve this diplomatically at this particular point. >> i bring a that up because i wonder how the president has started the new year as last year talking about these critical and tricky issues via twitter. he was talking about iran this weekend, talking about pakistan in twitter. what do you make of the
president's strategy here for diplomacy and foreign policy? >> well diplomacy by nature is a tricky business, you need to be careful and moderate in your statements knowing you can't extend too far. obviously these are things president trump doesn't do too often. this is a big contrast to what president obama's middle eastern realism was. where president obama was mostly silent, trump's been very vocal early on. president obama was slow to condemn some of the human rights abuses trump has immediately come out. president trump has inserted z us into that situation over there. so, as a general rule, i would expect president trump to do the inverse of everything president obama did in this situation. >> has the president been kind of selective in calling out regimes for human rights abuse. whereas his commentary has --
>> generous. >> he's calling out them in iran but not necessarily done that in other countries. >> right. correct. the silence on russia and china and some of those other actors. the president is definitely picking and choosing who to go after. the but he let's remember iran has been actively engaged through some funding of terrorist networks. i think this is a more pertinent immediate threat. >> turkey and the philippines comes to mind. but let's switch to the domestic ageneral a da which is action packed. you've got 19 days or i guess january 19 was the government fuchbtdsi funding deadline. really daca is at the center of everything. how do you expect the president to handle that specific issue and how will it play into government funding? >> well trump returned from sunny florida, he returned to i
think a frigid streak. there's 17 days for republicans to figure out how to fund the government. obviously democrats see this z at opportunity to get a permanent daca fix. the arithmetic favors them. president trump wants funding for his border wall. so, congressional republicans are going to have to weigh and balance both. the reason this is so important is while republicans were able to get gorsuch to the supreme court apt tax reform to the finish line, their base is going to remember a vote over daca. and we're in h an election cycle as crazy as it sounds. and those voters, they will remember what happens here and any bipartisan agreement, the base might see that as diminishing republicans earlier efforts. that's the last thing up want to do if you're the gop. >> senator lindsey graham says
he thinks there's a deal that can be done. >> i hope i'm understanding the punctuation rules. i don't know why it's upper case. >> don't try to do that. you're just begging for problemproblem problems. fip l >> nice to see you. we talk about high temperatures, a relative term at best. >> exclamation. cold. shawn evans: it's 6 am. 40 million americans are waking up to a gillette shave. and at our factory in boston, 1,200 workers are starting their day building on over a hundred years of heritage, craftsmanship and innovation. today we're bringing you america's number one shave at lower prices every day. putting money back in the pockets of millions of americans. as one of those workers, i'm proud to bring you gillette quality for less, because nobody can beat the men and women of gillette.
and when youod sugar is a replace one meal... choices. ...or snack a day with glucerna... ...made with carbsteady... ...to help minimize blood sugar spikes... ...you can really feel it. now with 30% less carbs and sugars. glucerna. temperatures are climbing to a balmy 25 degrees here in new york today. this cold snap won't go quietly. 25 daegs is on the warmer end. meteorologist joins us live. when is this going to loosen its
grip? >> sometime in the spring maybe. i tell you, mid january is when it looks like it will begin at least to finally warm up a little bit. that's relative because we're talking about wind chills still at this hour, 30, 40 below zero. in fact i'm showing you things on this map we can go decades without seeing here. especially a winter storm watch posted for florida. the frigid temperatures continue. from canada to mexico. minus 4 minneapolis. feels like minus 11 in government. step out, my goodness bundle up for the train arrives. orlando, mid 30's. now not just talking about the wind chill but the actual air temperature will remain very frigid, teens and of course with the wind it will feel much colder. running a good 15 as much as 20 degrees below average.
winter storm watches just posted from north florida, these extend along the coast along 95. the reason 0 for that freezing rain and wintry mix. there's the moisture associated with it. it's so cold you get this moisture dropping on that cold air and you're going to have frozen pre sip here across north florida and in the southeast. this spins up. that's the way it's going to be looking over the next few days, cold, snowy in places that should not be. talk more about that when i see you. >> there is significant snow potential for the northeast. you think? >> yes. the snow potential anywhere from four to six inches. even flurries and snowflakes could be dropping in florida. >> thank you. all right. all systems back up and running this morning after the computers
as customs and border protection went down for two hours. the outage forcing holiday travelers arriving from overseas to stand in long passport control lines. jfk, denver among the hardest hit. they had access to national security related databases and there is no indication the disruption was ma lishous in nature. >> a big pain. some big names is entertainment rolling out a wide ranging plan to fight sexual harassment. it started to form after the first round of allegations against producer harvey weinstein. more than a thousand women want to use their profile to help all women. >> we want all to be heard and believed and to know accountability is possible.
among the early donors to the group's $13 million legal fund, -- millions of american workers will ring in 2018 with a pay raise. as of january 1, 18 cities raised the minimum wage. advocates call a living wage $15 an hour. in new york fast food pay rose to $11.75. plans to hit $15 by the year 2021. in washington 2018's increase is one of several designed to reach $13.50. some remain closer to $7.25. higher wage is at the center of a hot political debate. advocates say $7:25 is simply
insufficient. critics argue if you raise the minimum wage is kills jobs, so far early studies on the effects have shown mixed results. overall wage growth is sluggish and has been for years. it's been the one weak spot in otherwise strong jobs market. front page of the "wall street journal" shows something i think is good news for workers, it shows in some metro areas in the united states the unemployment rate is only 3%. employees are having to raise wages to get the workers, simple supply and demand will tell you if you're running out of workers you're going to have to raise wages. >> that federal minimum wage. >> $7.25. so the states are taking it into their own hands. >> ahead, double overtime but georgia survives in the college football playoffs after a come back for the ages. coy wire has one of the greatest games in h college football history in the bleacher report next. in could bounce back like it used to?

all right. college football's national championship all set after a pair of games for the -- at least one of them. >> quality time with the tv yesterday. coy wire has more. >> good morning. of it's going to be georgia and alabama in an all see national title game. uga punched their ticket in one of the greatest rose bowl games every. this was magnificent. battling oklahoma. baker mayfield battling the
aftermath of a flew. he had them up 17 point in the the first half but georgia kept hitting at it. game time touchdown with about a minute to go. that went into overtime and in the second overtime, look at lorenzo carter. on the next drive with any sort of points uga would win. taking off 27 yards into the end zone and athens. and -- one of four touchdowns on the day. that 17-point come from behind win is the greatest in rose bowl history. 54-48 win in the thriller. here's the post game sound. >> our kids are so resilient, never stopped chopping wood. kept fighting. they believed there was offensive players and defensive players. we get a chance to play again.
>> can't believe it's over. it's been a wild ride. >> the sugar bowl, roll, tide role. bruising drovesiefensiveperform. he scores a touchdown with this incredible reception. keeping the toes in bounds. they can't believe it. the alabama looks fresh. defense vicious. unpredictable in h offense. look out. nick saban taking alabama to its sixth national title in nine seasons. title game, rather. he played a big man's dream of a game. >> i think -- i have been
talking to the coach lots about it. he says keep going you might get it. tried to do my best and work hard. and finally gave it to me. >> when et made the interception there was no doubt they were going to throw the ball in the goal line. i think it speaks volumes of the quality of programs we have. especially two programs, two teams in the national championship game, and i think sometimes people try to put a little hate on the sec because of some of the success we have, and i don't think that's really fair. >> look at that. coming into those games sec was two and four. and now the only two that matter are sec teams playing in that national championship. >> in atlanta where ucf went undefeated to cap a perfect 13 and 0 season. congrats. it's unfair there was a
conscious effort to keep them out. good season. coy, we want wait for in a national title game. thanks. all right. big domestic agenda facing the president this dwreyear but bef that, flare-ups demand attention. we've got live reports next. i'm so frustrated. i just want to find a used car without getting ripped off. you could start your search at the all-new carfax.com that might help. show me the carfax. now the car you want and the history you need are easy to find. show me used trucks with one owner. pretty cool.

aveeno®. the white house with a foreign focus as 2018 begins expanding antigovernment protests in iran and a potential twist in talks next week between north and south korea ahead of the olympics. >> president ready to tackle an ambitious agenda as 2018 dawns, no shortage of domestic issues with another show down over government funding. >> one thing has bipartisan agreement. it is cold. it's going to stay that way at least through the weekend.
more with the worldwide coverage begins right now. it is frigid. le we're live around the globe, though. has we heat up news wise. >> time to be back to work. >> we don't mean golfing. >> i'm christine momeromans. president trump back in washington facing a full and challenging agenda. in january alone, what to do about dreamers, infrastructure, entitlement and keeping the government funding all top the agenda. four weeks from today, the president gives his first official state of the union address. >> 44 weeks from today the midterm elections that will hang over many if not all of the political decisions you'll see this year. it at the new year's eve bash the president made this prediction. >> we're going to have a great 2018. it's going to be something very, very special. it's all kicking in. everybody's going to love what's
happening with our country because we're taking this big beautiful ship and we're slowly turning it around. like to do it faster. >> slowly turning it around. before he can get to work on a host of domestic issues, president trump is facing some international crisis. the protests in iran, the biggest protest in p almost a decade. the iranian president urging national unity but reroughing president trump saying an american president who once called iranians terrorists has no right to sympathize now. >> quote the great iranian people have been repressed for years, adding time for a change. the white house approach being closely watched. when protests erupted in 2009 president obama responded cautiously to say the least. he was concerned about blow-back to aggressive intervention by the u.s. which iran calls the great satan. >> at the time it was seen as foreign policy realism, but
today even some obama era national security officials believe president trump is striegi striking the triegt ton. >> in retrospect i think we made a mistake. we should have made it clear the world was watching. >> cnn correspondent monitoring. mine more killed overnight. 00 dr hundreds have been detained. any sign of this cooling off? >> reporter: no. we are in obviously a key moment here where the at the time toll appears to be rising. much of that related to one incident it seemed at a police station that went to blaze. but at the same time to the possibility that we may have a tougher reaction from iran security forces who so far have been quite measured. certainly if you compare their actions to 2009. the post' electoral protests
then. the question being will this continue to grow in scope and size. there are suggestions perhaps it's ebbing but the violence is certainly continuing and the government very keen to give a message that says we understand protests, the economic and political bases of some of the grievances, certainly the economic ones but at the same time too, the spokesman for the president saying there is a difference between protests and riots. we're also hearing from the ministry of intelligence of iran's suggestion that will be r resolute and targeted operations soon against those running and we hind the protests here. that was a warning issued last night. so you may perhaps read into that. hard to read exactly where it goes next. this wasn't really expected at all, frankly on this kind of scale. it caught many off guard. the question is can they calm it without violence on the streets
expanding. >> a lot of young people very disappointed in the economic prospects. that seeps to be driving it, almost leaderless kind of movement on the streets. thank you so much. another crucial issue globally confronting president trump of course the nuclear threat in north korea. kim jong-un extended an olive branch to south korea. let as go live to seoul and bring in cnn's paula hancocks. how does that loom over everything in the region at this point? >> wel >> reporter: i think they hope that can be the catalyst. you heard kim jong-un in his new year's day speech saying that he would be willing to send a delegation to the pyeongchang winter olympics which is that
rights next month and south korea has now suggested a indict to start high level talks, january 9, they're suggesting which is next tuesday to have high level talks with the north korea delegation at the dmz. this border village half in south korea and half in north korea. we haven't had a response from the north koreans but certainly south korea is bending over backwards saying if they can't do that date they can do another. the president is welcoming the fact they might want to be part of the olympics and could also talk about the nuclear issues as they go hand-in-hand. china is welcoming this as well saying this afternoon from the foreign ministry, it is a good thing that the north and south are going to talk but a very different message that north korea is giving to the united states saying they are able to hit all mainland united states cities with a nuclear weapon, saying they won't do that unless there is address against them, but two very different messages here. >> all right.
so much to talk about with our next guest. thanks so much. joining us this morning, welcome to the new year. fi phillip weg man. there's a statement from mike -- speaking with abc news and was very stark in his warning. >> we're actually closer in my view, to a nuclear war with north korea, and in that region than we've ever been. i just don't see how--i don't see the opportunities to sol this diplomatically at this particular point. >> then there's this, senator lindsey graham on cbs face the nation talking about the challenges that greet us in 2018 with iran and north korea and just how -- what a tinder box
this is. >> the iranians are watching us in north korea. north korea is watching us in iran. the iranians are watching the way he engages with north korea and vice versa, so we've got a chance here to deliver some fatal blows to really bad actors in 2018. but if we blink, god help us all. >> the he in that is the president. the we've seen the president tweeting about north korea. we've seen him tweeting about iran. in terms of foreign policy, his strategy here, what do we know? what challenges confront him? >> well immediately what we're seeing specifically on iran is that president trump is really -- while he's -- his foreign policy is still emerging comparing to president obama's realism. where as he was mostly silent, president trump has been very vocal. obama was slow to condemn human
rights abuse trump has been very vocal. president trump has inserted us into that conflict ongoing. le so, i would expect going forward president trump should deal with the exact inverse of everything obama did in 2009. >> lindsey graham added you can't just tweet here. you have to lay out a plan. that will be interesting in the days ahead. if the president is form a wide ranging foreign policy on the region. but let's turn back to domestic issues, because the president gets back to d.c. and there are a boat load of issues facing this president. january 19t h got to fund the government. children's health care, border wall, efrverything is facing congress right now. can this -- i don't want to say pivot or triangulate but can he legislate in a bipartisan mandatory get agreements on some of these hot button issues? >> that's certainly one of the hopes of the administration. i think that specifically, on
daca, that's going to be one of the most important issues as congress tries to continue to fund the government. we only have three weeks until government funding expires, president trump is demanding funding for his wall and also some reforms to immigration policy as it is. democrats clearly want a permanent fix. this is so important because this is the issue that brought republican base voters out to the polls. while, yes, they were able to get gorsuch to the supreme court ant tax reform to the finish line, they don't want to do anything to diminish those achievements because they don't want to give that base voter any reason not to show up to the polls in november. so i think these are definitely going to flavor the coming midterm. >> immigration is going to be the biggest food fight here don't you think? . president wants wall funding. the democrat the want the daca. will the democrats really agree
to something like that? >> right now, we see both sides are going to sit down in the coming days and figure out where the battle lines are. but it's a true cliché to say both camps are on a collision course. something has to give. obviously the margins in the senate are very fight. republicans only have 51 senators. they're going to have to come to the negotiation table. >> here's what lindsay graham said about the pending deadline. >> there is a deal to be had. the dreamers can have the life they dreamed of if the democrats and republicans can give. we need the wall, not a complete 2200 mile wall. we need border security. marry that up with the dream act. there's a deal to be had on immigration. i want to do it in january. i don't want to wait until march. >> now to be clear, it's not evident that republicans in congress want that wall, but the president does.
is there something democrats can give that satisfies the president's base on that without getting a physical call he talked about but satisfies both parties. >> that's right. our border with mexico is 22 miles, i don't think the funding is going to give us more than 50 or 60 miles of walls. that said, already, though, immigration has been much tougher down on the southern border and we've seen a drop in h border crossing so far. so, i think if president trump can get a wall, whether he calls is a wall or not and the legislation, whatever it takes for democrats to be able to stomach that compromise, i think that will be enough for him to give that to his base and look at overall reforms and move forward. >> all right. nice to see you this morning. happy new year. >> happy new year. when we talk about high
temperatures this week, it is relative at best. of the how long will the deep freeze last? that's next. people would stare. psoriasis does that. it was tough getting out there on stage. i wanted to be clear. i wanted it to last. so i kept on fighting. i found something that worked. and keeps on working. now? they see me. see me. see if cosentyx could make a difference for you- cosentyx is proven to help people with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis... ...find clear skin that can last. don't use if you're allergic to cosentyx. before starting cosentyx, you should be checked for tuberculosis. an increased risk of infections and lowered ability to fight them may occur. tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms. or if you have received a vaccine or plan to. if you have inflammatory bowel disease, tell your doctor if symptoms develop or worsen. serious allergic reactions may occur. never give up. see me. see me. clear skin can last. don't hold back... ...ask your dermatologist

multiple milestones for the strongest rise since 2013. it was also for the nasdaq. the 500 and the s&p, that was up 19%. last year's rally a result of a couple things. strong economic growth. fuelled by the tax cuts. the they will save corporate america billion the of dollars. remember, this bull market is not new. this is the s&p 500 over the past five or six years now the second oldest and strongest in history the s&p has seen multiple years of double digit growth. millions don't benefit from this. just about 19% own stocking directly. about half participate through an employee sponsored 401 k, about half the country

meteorologist ivan cabrera joins us. >> good morning. if we're talking about single digit temperatures now. that's the way it feels like. that is what will be greeting me. car starting a little bit slower. you work your way up and look at these wind chills, 19 below green bay. warmest temperature on the map is 6. congratulations. wind chill advisories extending from canada to mexico. 5 in atlanta is what is it feels like but even tallahassee, 21. little bit further to the north continue to see very cold temperatures. we may crack 40 degrees across southern alabama today. not going to get there in atlanta. temperatures in the teens, 90% of the united states yesterday did not reach 32. we stayed below freezing. this is something, again, you can go many years without seeing, a winter storm watch in
florida right now for freezing rain potential and wintry mix. light snow which could accumulate. watch that closely. not going to be a huge deal, but it will be because it could be snowing on the beach in the next couple days. there's the area of low pressure responsible. moisture and cold air. temperatures remaining very cold into the 20's, let's talk about new york city specifically. i'll leave you with that. it's going to be mighty cold. as we've been talking about, one, two, three, the air masses continue as far as the temperatures plunging will be well below zero with the wind chills and again through the middle part of next week. >> crazy. i keep thinking of those kids in des moines and upper midwest getting ready to go back to school. >> cancel school, i wonder. >> i don't see any
