tv   Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett  CNN  September 11, 2020 2:00am-2:59am PDT

2:00 am
president trump stoking fear and deflecting blame as he denies he misled the american people about coronavirus. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world, this is "early start." i'm boris sanchez in for christine romans. >> i'm laura jarrett. it's friday, september 11th, 5 a.m. here in new york. we begin this morning with president trump on the defensive. with 53 days left until the election, he's running short on time to tell the country he was trying to protect the public instead of misleading them. when called out on his lies yesterday, he once again deflected blame. >> why did you lie to the american people and why should we trust what you have to say
2:01 am
now? >> such a terrible question and the phraseology. i didn't lie. what i said is we have to be calm. we can't be panicked. of course i did. >> the flu and you went out and told the american public that this was just like the flu. let me tell you something else. >> five times. five times. you ever hear the expression five times. we've had flu years where we lost 100,000 people. the flu is a very serious problem for people also. scott, what kind of a number have we lost over the year with flus? into the hundreds of thousands. >> well, i mean, the last five years have been something like 35 to 80,000 per year, every year even with antiviral drugs. >> this is worst -- deadlier than the most strenuous flu and you went on to say it's just like the flu. >> what i went on and said is very simple. listen, what i went on and said is very simple. i want to show a level of confidence and i want to show
2:02 am
strength as a leader and i want to show our country is going to be fine one way or another. whether we lose 1 person. we shouldn't have lost any. this is china's fault. >> now that his lies have been exposed. >> he's continued to turn to fear. listen to this. >> does anybody want to have somebody from antifah as a member and resident of your suburb? i don't think so. say, darling, who moved in next door? it's a resident of antifa, no thank you. let's get out of here. i wish trump were president. >> so that was last night at michigan rally. a key battleground state that's also one of the 16 states where coronavirus deaths are on the rise right now. it's also the 16th rally trump's
2:03 am
held since he told bob woodward in early february that he knew how deadly this virus was and that it was airborne. cnn's jim acosta has more. >> reporter: the president largely steered clear of the bob woodward book that captured mr. trump downplaying the coronavirus pandemic during his recent present attack. joe biden went after the governor saying she doesn't know what she's doing when it came to the coronavirus. the president said that where thousands of people were not practicing social distancing and not wearing masks. the president went on to explain one controversial excerpt when he tells the author about a top secret nuclear weapons system. >> with the fake news today i said we have systems and missiles and rockets and military and -- we have city systems that you've never even seen before.
2:04 am
president xi has nothing like it. putin has nothing like it. nobody has anything like what we have, and they said, is he giving away military information? no. i'm saying we have the greatest weapons in the world. that's what i'm saying. >> reporter: during his remarks he says he is rounding the corner as that is not the case. boris and laura? >> thanks for that, jim. an estimated 3,000 more people crowded into the hanger. very few masks inside. a white house chief correspondent, jim acosta, spoke with a few of the president's supporters about those conditions. listen to what they said. >> why are you guys not wearing masks? >> i have one with me.
2:05 am
it's my prerogative. >> why not wear one? you'll stay safe. >> i have a hard time understanding people when they talk so that's why i don't wear it. >> reporter: you can hear me right now? >> i can hear you. >> reporter: why are you not wearing a mask? >> because there's no covid. it's a fake pandemic created to destroy the united states of america. >> reporter: but the president said to bob woodward there is a virus, a coronavirus, it's deadly. >> that's his opinion. the truth is the cdc said less than 10,000 people die from covid. the other 190,000 have 2.6 mortalities. >> where are you -- >> i'm not afraid. the good lord takes care of me. if i die, i die. we've got to get this country moving. panic. what are you going to do, wear masks and stay inside for another year? where will that get us?
2:06 am
>> that was revealing. the director of the national institute of health says he's baffled that the scientists sees people choosing not to wear masks at the president's rallies. he offered this assessment at last night's coronavirus town hall here on cnn. >> it just deeply puzzles me, sanjay. how did we get here? imagine you were an alien who landed on planet earth. when you went around you saw some people not wearing them and some people wearing them and you tried to figure out why and it turned out it was their political party. you would scratch your head and say, this is a planet that doesn't have much promise for the future. also this mornings a new warning from dr. anthony fauci. he says the next few months
2:07 am
could be daunting. we need to get through this fall and winter. it's not going to be easy. we know every time we lift restrictions we get a blip. it's whack a mole. >> more than 191,000 americans have died from coronavirus. nearly 900 losing their lives in the last 24 hours. cnn's nick watt has more. how many people could have been saved out of 190,000 that have died? my guess is 180,000 of those. >> i'm furious because you want to talk about panic and wanting to reduce panic? i think of every single family i called on face time to say a member has died. >> this is stunning. he should resign. this is really stunning. >> but the president still
2:08 am
thinks or says he's been great. >> if you look at our numbers, it's been an amazing job we've done. >> reporter: let's look at the numbers. compare the u.s. to other countries. foreign policy magazine does just that and ranks the u.s. very near the bottom, just below ethiopia, russia, hungary and ethiopia t. highlights facts and -- >> it mir rack cue wously goes away when it gets warmer. >> reporter: a new poll shows 62% of americans worry they'll rush the vaccine. >> they confirmed just over 720,000 cases by april 18th. researchers estimate there were really over 6.4 million by that point. why? because there wasn't enough
2:09 am
testing. still isn't. and the cdc's guidance still says if you have been at an unmasked gathering of more than ten people but don't have symptoms, you do not necessarily need a test unless you're from a vulnerable population, something the administration's own testings are czar contradicts. >> we do need to test asymptomatic people. there is no doubt about that false stop. >> reporter: still with the mixed messaging. look at presentation and slide. as always, there are state-to-state differences in terchs of pred. still super cautious. if we get there on a regular
2:10 am
basis, we need to immediately accept indoor testing. that is a little bit harder here in los angeles county. wildfires have burned 3 million acres in the state. as a result of the air qualitqu l.a. county has closed six covid-19 testing sites. thank you so much. we move now to the west coast where the death toll has climbed to 15 this morning as the wildfires burn in california, oregon and washington. firefighters discovered seven bodies. g gsz. laura, boris, good morning.
2:11 am
the situation is incredibly dangerous in oregon as the fire spreads. we are in clackamas county which has been hit hard. this particular area is the staging zone for the fire crews as they figure out their plan for which areas to tackle next. the residential areas all around us are under a mandatory level 3 evacuation order. that means people are being told to get out while they can. this is a rural agricultural area. there are a lot of farms and livestock. some people have been trying to stay back and save their animals, protect their structures. governor kate brown on thursday said more than 900,000 acres burned in the last 72 hours. to give you some context, 500,000 acres burned last year on average. so this is an unprecedented, historic fire situation. they are predicting a loss of
2:12 am
life, a loss of structures. we know 35,000 have evacuated. that is expected to grow. the wind conditions are changing and they are facing unstable air conditions. firefighters don't know which direction the fires could spread. there is the worry of some of these major fires merging together. they have not been able to containfully of the fires. the focus has been on evacuating people, saving some structures. they hope to contain the fire as soon as it's safe to. >> lucy kafanov with the report. this morning marks 19 years of the 9/11 attacks. more after a quick break.

well, the nfl season kicking off last night and already teams are split on how to handle the national anthem. andy scholes has more on the bleacher report this morning. live from kansas city. all right, andy, what happened? >> reporter: hi, good morning, laura. as part of the new social justice initiative, the nfl is playing both the black national anthem and the national anthem before games this week. while the chiefs decided to stay on the field for both of those anthems, the texans opted to remain in the locker room. they didn't want to be seen as celebrating one of those and throwing shade at the other. now the chiefs, they lined up on the goal line for the black national anthem in a video tribute. then just one player, defensive
2:25 am
end alex okafor kneeling with his fist raised in the air. once the texans did take the field, both teams gathering at midfield for a moment of unity. now you can hear some boos on the broadcast when that happened. i was in the stadium. i didn't hear any fans booing in the area where i was sitting, but j.j. watt said after the game he didn't understand why anyone would boo that moment. >> the booing was unfortunate during that moment. i don't truly understand that. there was no flag involved. nothing involved with that besides two teams coming together to show unity. >> we wanted to show we're unified as a league.
2:26 am
right before the game the miami dolphins in a powerful video described what they were going to do during pre-games this season. in week one, they, like the texans, deciding to remain in the locker room for both national anthems. >> it's just a way to save face. >> lose a mask and stop hiding the real game face. >> so if my dad was a soldier but the cops killed a brother, do i stand for one anthem and neil for the other? >> there's an attempt to unify creates a divide. >> we'll skip the song and dance. >> and as a team we'll stay inside. >> enough. no more fluff and empty gestures. >> as for the action on the field, andy read facing a foggy face shield. patrick mahomes, great game, 3

2:33 am
i'm boris sanchez in for christine romans. at 32 minutes past the hour. we begin with president trump desperately trying to convince americans that he did not conceal the severity of the coronavirus pandemic even though he did. it's on tape. in his own words, he played it down. he told bob woodward in february that the virus is five times deadlier than the flu and that he was intentionally downplaying it. here's the president getting grilled yesterday by reporters, attempting to rewrite the narrative. >> why did you lie to the american people and why should we trust what you have to say now? >> such a terrible question and the phraseology. i didn't lie. what i said is we have to be calm. we can't be panicked. of course i did. of course i did. >> deadlier than the flu and you went out and told the american public that this was just like the flu. >> no. and five times, right, five times. you ever hear the expression,
2:34 am
five times. we've had flu years where we lost 100,000 people. the flu is a very serious problem and we've been losing them -- scott, what kinds of numbers? >> the last have -- you said this was deadlier than the most deadliest flu and you said it's just like the flu. >> i want to show a level of confidence and i want to show strength as a leader and our country is going to be fine one way or the other whether we lose 1 -- we shouldn't lose any. this is china's fault. >> now that so many lies has been exposed, trump has continued to turn to fear to drum up enthusiasm to drum up
2:35 am
support from his supporters. >> does anybody want to have somebody from antifa as a member and as a resident of your suburb? i don't think so. say, darling, who moved in next door? oh, it's a resident of antifa. no thank you. let's get out of here. let's get the hell out of here, darling, let's leave our suburbs. oh, i wish trump were president. >> the president talks about not wanting to cause a panic. he speaks about antifa, carry vans of migrants coming to the united states. it boosts his standing. this rally in michigan, the 16th the president held since early february. when he confirmed he knew how deadly this virus was and it was airborne. cnn's jim acosta has more. >> reporter: during a rally in michigan the president largely
2:36 am
steered clear of the bob woodward book that captured mr. trump downplaying the coronavirus pandemic. he attacked joe biden but also went after the governor of michig michigan. people were not wearing masks or social distancing. the president explained when he tells the author about a top secret nuclear weapons program. here's more of what the president had to say about that. >> with the fake news today, i said we have systems, missiles, rockets, military, we have systems that you have never even seen before. president xi has nothing like it. putin has nothing like it. nobody has anything like what we have, and they said, is he giving away military information? no. i'm saying we have the greatest weapons in the world. that's what i'm saying.
2:37 am
>> reporter: during his remarks the president claimed the u.s. is rounding the corner in the coronavirus pandemic. of course, that is not the case as the u.s. is projected to double the number of dead in this country right now. boris and laura. >> boris, jim acosta talked with some of the folks in the crowd about why they weren't wearing masks. their answers were revealing. they said it's fake, made up, even though acosta confronted them that the president has said it's real and deadly, they still don't believe it. >> reporter: it's notable that there's a cognitive dissonance that they have said there's something deadly, he acknowledges that he tried to downplay it, there is a belief among so many of his supporters this is not something to be taken seriously. we saw very little if any social distancing at the rally.
2:38 am
as you noted, folks not wearing masks. the president instead of saying this is what we can do to avoid the countless deaths going forward, he mocks joe biden wearing masks and plays coy. >> it's so unfortunate. you wonder how different it could have been if it was handled differently from the beginning. apparently nobody is more impressed with the president's handling of the coronavirus than the president himself. he said this. >> america will prevail over the china virus. as franklin delanor roosevelt said, the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. as the british government advised people in the face of world war ii, keep calm and carry on. that's what i did. this whack job that wrote the book he said, well, trump knew a little bit. they wanted me to come out and
2:39 am
scream, people are dying. we're dying. no. no. we did it just the right way. we have to be calm. we don't want to be crazed lunatics. the person he talked to 18 times, he's now calling him a whack job. churchill was blunt. the opposite of what trump just said. listen. thanks on this. in the agonizing weeks, not blindness to the fact that what happened in france and belgium is a colossal military disaster. >> also this morning a new warning from the nation's top infectious disease expert. dr. anthony fauci said the next few months could be daunting. >> i just think we need to
2:40 am
hunker down and get through this fall and winter because it's not going to be easy. we know every time we lift restrictions, we get a blip. it's whack a mole. >> more than 191,000 americans have died from coronavirus with nearly 900 in the last 24 hours. france just set a new record for coronavirus cases in a 24 hour period tops the highest number. jim, nice to see you this morning. any sense whether the government is going to impose new lockdown measures given this spike? >> reporter: it certainly looks like it, laura. there's a meeting going on right
2:41 am
now and the president of the committee said before things got started, there's going to be some difficult decisions ahead. france went through a pretty stiff lockdown, then they released and they saw the caseload going up. it's gone up rather dramatically. more than 9,000 cases yesterday. 50,000 over the last week. it should be said that they are now testing a lot. they're testing a million people a week. the toewss are revealing a bigger spread of the virus than people thought. they're talking about perhaps locking things down again. not overall, not over the entire nation. they will do it by hot spot by
2:42 am
hot spot. thank you for all of that. coronavirus cases are spiking in the last 24 hours. that is a record high. it makes india the second most infected country in the world. we are live in new delhi. we understand the mortality rate in india is relatively low compared to the rest of the world. officials there have used that to try to reopen some parts of the country, but that doesn't paint a full picture of what's happened? >> absolutely. and at the same time you have a low fatality reach. especially in rural areas, it has a population of 70% in rural areas. a lot of people are not being tested but they're dying. the death is not registered
2:43 am
under covid-19 deaths. that's one main reason why you see that they are not added to the fatality rate. according to the government, the fatality vat less than when you actually saw it was 77% as of this morning. the fatality rate is less than 2% to reopen the economy. at the same time you heard them to say india needs to happen. so at the same time in the reopening and a lot of cases going on because of that as well as the aggressive testing which has crassed 54,000 deaths this
2:44 am
morning. >> reporting from new delhi. thanks. the question to restore enhanced unemployment benefits for millions of americans out of work failing to advance in the senate. after weeks of debate over the size and scope of the plan, republicans wound up supporting the proposal in a largely party line vote. kentucky rand paul was the only republican to vote against it. we are 44 minutes past the hour and the glass ceiling on wall street has been shattered. details next.
