1:00 am
second of all -- >> you don't know that, bernie. >> i do know it. i wrote the damn bill. >> senators bernie sanders and elizabeth warren fending off attacks from moderate democrats at the first cnn debate. >> i don't understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the united states just to talk about what we really can't do and shouldn't fight for. >> the moderate front-runner takes the stage hours from now. joe biden joins the next ten candidates in detroit tonight. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. this isari "early start." this is christine romans. >> nice to be with you. i'm boris sanchez.
1:01 am
last night things got a little testy on stage. the ideological gap between progressives and moderates an overriding theme on the first night of the cnn democratic debates with ten candidates struggling for attention last night at the fox theater in detroit. moderates trained their fire on the two progressives topping the polls -- senators bernie sanders and elizabeth warren, seeming to circle the wagons, avoiding attacks on each other. at times it seemed like the adults taking on the jv squad playing defense. one of the key issues, sanders' proposed take on the health care system and health care for all. watch this debate. >> congressman delaney just referred to it as bad policy, and previously he's called the idea political suicide that will just get president trump re-elected. what do you say to congressman delaney? >> you're wrong.
1:02 am
[ laughter ] [ cheers ] right now we have a dysfunctional health care system, 87 million uninsured or underinsured, $500,000, 500,000 americans every year going bankrupt because of medical bills, 30,000 people dying while the health care industry makes tens of billions of dollars in profit. five minutes away from here, john, is a country. it's called canada. they guarantee health care to every man, woman, and child as a human right -- >> i'm right about this. we can create a universal health care system to give everyone basic look for free. and i have a proposal to do it. we don't having to around and be the party of subtraction and telling half the country who has private health insurance that their health insurance is illegal. my dad, the union electrician, loved the health care he got from the ibw. he would never want someone to take that away. >> let's be clear about this -- we are the democrats. we are not about trying to take
1:03 am
away health care from anyone. that's what the republicans are trying to do. >> enthusiastic, energetic, often loud sanders also taking on john hick looper, the former governor and mayor arguing he's one of the few running with executive experience. >> i think if we're going to force americans to make these radical changes, they're not going to go along. throw your hands up. but you haven't -- >> whoa -- >> i can do it. but you haven't implemented the plans. us governors and mayors have to pick up the pieces which suddenly the government is supposed to take over all these responsibilities, and there's no preparation. the details on what -- you can't just spring a plan on the world and expect it to succeed. >> and the candidates generally avoided cheap shots. but there were still a few notable zingers as sanders and warren fended off the centrist attacks. listen. >> so i think democrats win when we run on real solutions, not
1:04 am
impossible promises. when we run on things that are workable, not fairytale economics. >> senator warren? >> i don't understand why anyone goes to the trouble of running for president of the united states just to talk about what we can't do and shouldn't fight for. i don't get it. >> can you guarantee those union members that the benefits under medicare for all will be as good as the benefits that their representatives, their union reps, fought hard to negotiate? >> two things. they will be better because medicare for all is comprehensive. it covers all health care needs. for senior citizens it will include dental care, hearing aids, and eyeglasses. >> you don't know that, bernie -- >> i do know it, wrote the damn bill. >> the sanders campaign so confident in that comeback that it already is selling "i wrote the damn bill" stickers as a fundraiser on its website. which may tell you how spontaneous the line may have been. >> for pete buttigieg last night
1:05 am
was not about moderates versus progressives but right versus wrong. the mayor of south bend knows he's going to make the cut for the next round of debates. he has a sizable war chest so he's not desperate. he seemed determined to separate himself from the pack by staying above the political fray. watch. >> it is time to stop worrying about what the republicans will say. [ applause ] if it's true that if we embrace a far left agenda, they're going to say we're a bunch of crazy socialists. if we embrace a conservative agenda, they're going to say we're a bunch of crazy socialists. so let's stand up for the right policy, go out there, and defend it. that's a policy i'm putting forward. >> buttigieg also challenged republicans to stand up to president trump, and he this warning for those who chose to look the other way -- >> today they are supporting naked racism in the white house or at best silent about it. if you are watching this at home and you are a republican member of congress, consider the fact that when the sun sets on your
1:06 am
career and they are writing your story, of all the good and bad things you did in your life, the thing you will be remembered for is whether in this moment with this president you found the courage to stand up to him, or you continue to put party over country. [ applause ] >> it was montana governor steve bullock's first time on the big debate stage. he did his best to make up for lost time. he cast himself as a more pragmatic progressive. focused on the economy, and against dark money in politics. on immigration he said he's against decriminalizing border crossings. >> i think this is part of the discussion that shows how often these debates are detached from people's lives. we've got 100,000 people showing up at the border right now. if we decriminalize entry, if we give health care to everyone, we'll have multiples of that. don't take my word, that was president obama's homeland security secretary that said that. the biggest problem right now that we have with immigration,
1:07 am
it's donald trump. he's using immigration to not only rip apart families but rip apart this country. >> marianne williamson may be a long shot to make to the next debate, but there's no doubt she has america's attention. she's a political novice and author with an unconventional perspective. and she stood out on stage as she was flanked by career politicians. she had a frank response to a question about reparations for slavery. listen to this. >> about $500 billion in financial assistance, it's $500 billion, $200 to $500 billion payment of debt that is owed. that is what reparations is. we need some deep truth telling. we need to recognize that when it comes to the economic gap between blacks and whites in america, it does come from a great injustice that has never been dealt with. >> as for what her party must do to defeat president trump, she said this --
1:08 am
>> this is part of the dark underbelly of american society. [ cheers ] the racism, the bigotry, and the entire conversation that we're having rear tonight. if you think any of this wonkiness is going to deal with this dark psychic force of the collective hatred that the president is bringing up in this country, i'm afraid that the democrats are going to see some very dark days. >> on a crowded stage, airtime is everything, of course. elizabeth warren wound up with the lion's share. look at the breakdown. she spoke for 18 minutes and 11 seconds. bernie sanders was second with 17 minutes, 31 seconds. then there's a big drop-off to third place with pete buttigieg, 14 minutes, nine seconds. >> senator warren may have scored the most face time, but it was marianne williamson who's breakout moments made her the most searched of the ten candidates during the debate in 49 of 50 states. she was also the candidate trending most heavily nationwide on twitter. according to trends 24, as of midnight, williamson, the only one to beat the "bachelorette" finale followed by delaney,
1:09 am
sanders, warren, and ryan. "bachelorette" finale -- >> says so much about america. ten more democrats take the stage tonight including joe biden and kamala harris. the second night of the cnn democratic debates all starts at 8:00 p.m. tonight live again from detroit only on cnn. set was beautiful -- >> it was gorgeous. >> fox theater was lovely. did a great job. >> look forward to more tonight. as the canadian were getting ready to debate, north korea launched two more missiles. we have a live report next. i can't believe it. that i won the "best of" sweepstakes and i get to be in this geico commercial? let's do the eyebrows first, just tease it a little. slather it all over, don't hold back. well, the squirrels followed me all the way out to california! and there's a very strange badger staring at me... no, i can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars on my car insurance with geico. uh-huh, where's the camel? "mr. big shot's" got his own trailer. ♪ wheeeeeee! believe it! geico could save you 15% or more on car insurance.
1:10 am
since my dvt blood clot i was thinking... could there be another around the corner? or could it turn out differently? i wanted to help protect myself. my doctor recommended eliquis. eliquis is proven to treat and help prevent another dvt or pe blood clot... almost 98 percent of patients on eliquis didn't experience another. ...and eliquis has significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis is fda approved and has both. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop.
1:11 am
seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. what's around the corner could be surprising. ask your doctor about eliquis. they have businesses to grow customers to care for lives to get home to they use stamps.com print discounted postage for any letter any package any time right from your computer all the amazing services of the post office only cheaper get our special tv offer a 4-week trial plus postage and a digital scale go to stamps.com/tv and never go to the post office again!

north korea, north korea firing two short-range ballistic missiles into the sea of japan according to the south korean military. it is the second missile test by pyongyang in the last week. cnn's ivan watson is monitoring developments live in hong kong. here we are getting ready for a democratic -- democratic debate, and this -- >> yeah. this is a surprise for the korean peninsula, two short-range ballistic missiles, according to south korea, that were fired from north korea's eastern coast. and it's the second such short range ballistic missile launch in less than a week. north korea seems to be stepping up the frequency of these missile launches. it broke a self-imposed moratorium on may 9th with a first round of short-range ballistic missiles. perhaps more striking is that
1:15 am
this took place just one month after the historic meeting between president trump and north korean leader kim jong-un on the demilitarized zone when the two leaders met with the south korean president and made promises to start to organize bilateral working negotiations which seem to have not happened yet and seem to be behind the promised schedule that president trump offered. so some sabre rattling coming from the north koreans. after they launched missiles last week, they said this was a warning to the south koreans. they seem to be unhappy about the possibility of another round of annual bilateral u.s.-south korean military exercises that are anticipated. and perhaps the fact, military analysts say, that south korea is acquiring f-35a u.s.-made stealth fighters. all of this going to show that despite the trump diplomacy with pyongyang, north korea showing
1:16 am
it can still make trouble and still be dangerous in the region. >> we'll see what the president -- if the president has anything to tweet or say about this. in the past he has downplayed events like this. ivan watson, thank you so much. police believe the gunman who killed three people at the garlic festival in gilroy, california, acted alone. investigators are still hard at work at the crime scene. the area is so vast it could take up to five more days to process it. more than 40 law enforcement personnel are still on site doing 3d mapping of the property. cnn law enforcement analyst josh campbell has more. >> reporter: we're learning new details into the investigation of the mass shooting here in gilroy, california, on sunday, that took the life of three and injured 12. in an update from authorities, police providing new information on early reports that there was possibly a second shooter or accomplice of the 19-year-old local resident who arrived at the family-friendly festival and opened fire. police telling us that more and more their investigation leading them to believe that there was not a second shooter or accomplice. this was based on both the
1:17 am
review of the crime scene itself, as well as the ability of the police to track the movements of the shooter on the day of the attack around town and gathering cctv footage at various locations. police telling us in each instance, the subject appears alone. nevertheless, the fbi agent in charge here telling us the bureau set up a special website, fbi.governor -- fbi.gov/gilroy, asking people submit photos or videos that investigators can use as part of their investigation. we're learning new details about the weaponry that was used in this attack. we earlier reported on this ak-47-type rifle that the subject used. police telling us that in conducting a search of a vehicle belonging to the subject, they also recovered a shotgun that the subject purchased in nevada and brought to california. lastly, we've been reporting on this instagram account that was used by the suspect before the attack to discuss not only grievances about this festival but he also implored his followers to read a text, an historical book this can only be
1:18 am
described as white supremacy literature. police telling us they're not yet able to say that he arrived intending to target minorities. however, that part of the investigation continues. christine and boris? >> josh campbell, thanks for that. democratic party lawsuit claiming the trump campaign conspired with russia and wikileaks to influence the 2016 election has been tossed out by a federal judge. the judge says russia was the primary wrongdoer in the alleged plot to hack the dnc. and a steel trove of emails and documents. he ruled the publication of the emails by wikileaks was protected by the first amendment and was -- as was the praise and further dissemination of the emails by officials in the trump campaign being an expression of the first amendment. president trump hailed the decision on twitter writing that it was yet another total and complete vindication and exoneration in. worth repeating that robert mueller made clear the president was not exonerated. >> right. right now the federal reserve getting ready to do something today that it hasn't done in more than a decade, and what a difference a decade and a

all right. it is decision day for the federal reserve. we are at an unprecedented moment here, like all of the trump presidency. by all indications the fed is about to cut interest rates in a strong economy after a decade of economic growth. the last time the fed cut rates all the way back december, 2008, when the u.s. was in the depth of the financial crisis. at that moment, that quarter, gdp shrank 8.4%. the unemployment rate was 7.3% and rising fast, went all the way to 10%. the dow on the day of that last rate cut was down 33% for the year, and the s&p was down 37% year to date. that's what happened the last time the fed felt it had to help the economy and cut rates. compare that to today. gdp, a solid 2.1%. the jobless rate below 4%. stocks near record highs. the s&p is up 20% this year. another big difference between then and now, a president insulting, cajoling, and rage tweeting the fed and demanding
1:25 am
lower interest rates. >> i think the economy's so strong that nothing's going to stop us. but the fed could have made it a lot easier. i would like to see a large cut, and i'd like to see immediately the quantitative fighting stop. >> the question, how big will the rate cut be and what will the fed chief say this afternoon when he announces the fed move. a 3-year-old boy in china miraculously survived a six-story plunge from a highrise building. the heart-stopping moments captured on video. the toddler is seen clinging to an apartment balcony. quick thinking neighbors grabbed two large blankets hoping to break his fall. the boy loses his grip and falls into the blankets. remarkable unhurt. >> that video made me tense. dramatic. two high-profile progressive candidates on stage, elizabeth warren and bernie sanders, taking fire from moderates in

1:31 am
between progressives and moderate, ten candidates struggling for attention at the fox theater in detroit. moderates trained their fire on the two progressives topping the polls. senators bernie sanders and elizabeth warren seeming to circle their wagons, avoiding attacks on each other and concentrating on lower polling moderates. one of the key issues up for debate -- sanders' proposed overhaul of the u.s. health care system, medicare for all. watch this exchange among warren, sanders, and former maryland congressman john delaney. >> congressman delaney referred to it as bad policy and previously called the idea political suicide that will just get president trump re-elected. what do you say to congressman delaney? >> you're wrong. [ applause ] right now we have a dysfunctional health care system, 87 million uninsured or under insured, 500,000 americans
1:32 am
every year going bankrupt because of medical bills, 30,000 people dying while the health care industry makes tens of billions of dollars in profit. five minutes away from here, john, is a country, it's called canada. they guarantee health care to every man, woman, and child as a human right -- >> i'm right about this. we can create a universal health care system to give everyone basic health care for free. and i have a proposal to do it. but we don't have to go around and be the party of subtraction and telling half the country who has private health insurance that their health insurance is illegal. my dad, the union electrician, loved the health care he got from the ibew. he would never want someone to take that away. >> let's be clear about this -- we are the democrats. we are not about trying to take away health care from anyone. that's what the republicans are trying to do. >> an energetic sanders also taking on john hickenlooper, former colorado governor and denver mayor, arguing he's one of the few running with
1:33 am
executive experience. >> i think if we're going to force americans to make radical changes, they're not going to go along -- throw your hands up. but you haven't -- >> all right. >> whoa, i can do. it you haven't implemented the plans. us governors and mayors are the ones, we have to pick up all the pieces when suddenly the government's supposed to take over all these responsibilities, and there's no preparation, the details on what -- you can't just spring a plan on the world and expect it to succeed. >> the candidates generally stuck to the issues and avoided cheap shots. there were still a few notable zingers as sanders and warren fended off the centrist attacks. listen. >> so i think democrats win when we run on real solutions, not impossible promises. when we run on things that are workable, not fairytale economics. >> senator warren -- >> i don't understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the united states just to talk about what we really can't do and shouldn't fight for. [ applause ] >> can you guarantee those union
1:34 am
members that the benefits under medicare for all will be as good as the benefits that their representatives, their union reps fought hard to negotiate? >> two things. they will be better because medicare for all is comprehensive. it covers all health care needs for citizens. it will finally include dental care, hearing aids, and eyeglasses. >> but you don't know -- you don't know that, bernie -- >> second of all -- i do know it, i wrote the damn bill. >> the senator's campaign so confident in that comeback, it already is selling "i wrote the damn bill" stickers its website. that they tell you how spontaneous that was. for pete buttigieg, he framed it as right versus wrong. the south bend mayor knows he will make the cut for the next round of debates and seemed determined to separate himself from the pack by staying above the political fray. >> it is time to stop worrying about what the republicans will say. look, if -- >> yeah.
1:35 am
>> if it's true that if we embrace a far-left agenda, they're going to say we're a bunch of crazy cyberists. if we -- socialists. if we embrace the social agenda they'll say we're crazy socialists. let's stands up for the right policy. that's a policy i'm putting forward. >> he had a warning for those who choose to look the other way. >> today they are supporting naked racism in the white house or at best silent about it. if you are watching this at home and you are a republican member of congress, consider the fact that when the sun sets on your career and they are writing your story, of all the good and bad things you did in your life, the thing you will be remembered for is whether in this moment with this president you found the courage to stand up to him or you continued to put party over country. >> it was montana governor steve bullock's first time on the debate stage. he did his best to make up for lost time. he cast himself as a more
1:36 am
pragmatic progressive, focused on the economy and against dark money in politics. on immigration, he said he's against decriminalizing border crossings. >> i think this is part of the discussion that shows how often these debates are detached from people's lives. we've got 100,000 people showing up at the border right now. if we decriminalize entry, if we give health care to everyone, we'll have multiples of that. don't take my word. that was president obama's homeland security secretary that said that. the biggest problem right now that we have with immigration, it's donald trump. he's using immigration to not only rip apart families but to rip apart this country. >> marianne williamson may be a long shot to make it to the next democratic debate, but there's no doubt she has america's attention. a political novice with an unconventional perspective, she stood out on a stage flanked by career politicians. she had a frank response to a
1:37 am
question about reparations for slavery. >> $500 billion in financial assistance, it $200 billion to $ $500 billion of repayment for a debt that's owed. we need to recognize when it comes to the economic gap between blacks and whites in america, it does come from a great injustice that has never been dealt with. >> as for what her party must do to defeat president trump, she said this -- >> this is part of the dark underbelly of american society. the racism, the bigotry, and the entire conversation that we're having here tonight. if you think any of this wonkiness is going to deal with this dark psychic force of the collectivized hatred that this president is bringing up in this country, then i'm afraid that the democrats are going to see some very dark days. >> dark psychic force. >> dark psychic force. >> got a lot of attention. she was the -- one of most
1:38 am
highly googled. >> yeah. yeah. she didn't bring up the prime minister of new zealand, but pete buttigieg did. again, the prime minister of new zealand getting major play in the debates. joining us now to discuss these dark psychic forces, live from detroit, guardian white house correspondent sabrina sadiki. also palestinian analyst. good morning to you. the first debate was a showcase between the more moderate sort of pragmatic democrats and the more, you know, home run, big plan, big idea wing of the party. bernie sanders and elizabeth warren clearly head and shoulders above the rest. they were playing defense against the j.v. squad. did anybody break through and put a dent on them? >> well, i wouldn't say anyone was really able to put a dent on bernie sanders and elizabeth warren who are not only leaders of the progressive movement but have had an indelible impact in terms of shaping what the
1:39 am
current democratic party looks like on ranging from health care to income inequality and taxes. you did see them very much on the defensive. this was sort of a night in which you could describe it as the centrists fighting back. but i don't think there was any clear candidate who claimed that mantle, especially when you look at the field more broadly it's joe biden who is still very much leading most polls and also kind of trying to occupy that pragmatic centrist approach. i think that there really wasn't anyone who was able to undercut the movement that sanders and warren are trying to build. >> it was almost as if the moderates were literally setting the stage for joe biden, you know, to pick up the mantle tonight in detroit. i want to listen to something that elizabeth warren said because i think there is this -- this discussion going on within the democratic party, look, we just need to -- we don't want to start another revolution. we want to win the presidency. we want elect ability and want
1:40 am
to repair the damage from the trump presidency. she's saying, no, we have to be the party of big ideas. listen. >> our problems didn't start with donald trump. donald trump is part of a corrupt, rigged system that has helped the wealthy and the well connected and kicked dirt in the faces of everyone else. we're not going to solve the urgent problems that we face with small ideas and spinelessness. we're going to solve them by being the democratic party of big structural change. >> that almost sounds like she's talking to joe biden, too, don't you think? >> absolutely. i think it was a message to anyone who is not really willing to embrace the more bold progressive agenda that the likes of warren and sanders have campaigned on. there was another point in time where elizabeth warren during the debate said that candidates shouldn't be running on what they can't do.
1:41 am
they should be running on what they can do because so much of the conversation was about how feasible really is medicare for all or is the green new deal actually practical. i think for people like warren and sanders, they really believe the path to victory is in building a movement as opposed to biden or moderates who really want to make this election about electability and who is best positioned to defeat donald trump. now i don't think that there's any clear sense of what the democratic electorate is thinking. we still have several months before voters actually go to the polls. and that's when we'll get a better sense of whether or not they want this to squarely be a referendum on the president or if there is that progressive litmus test that a candidate is going to have to clear in order to earn the nomination. >> and speaking specifically about night one, some of the ideas that were put out there by elizabeth warren and bernie sanders, these big ideas that we're talking about, the green new deal, medicare for all, we're not exactly broadly popular. i guess my question is watching what you saw last night, was
1:42 am
there anything that president trump should be concerned about? >> well, i think that it depends on which issue you're talking about because there has been some polling to suggest that medicare for all or even a well tax polls well with americans. what the president is doing is they're painting democrats as socialists. it's a scare tactic that they're going to use to try and make the case to voters that democrats really want the government to overtake every aspect of your life. and you've already seen them hitting that message home in a number of ads that they're running in key states. so i think that's the way that republicans are going to push back. where donald trump may be concerned is there certainly is a fair amount of energy on the side of democrats, but again, that goes back to whether or not this is about building a movement, or is this simply democrats wanting a return to normalcy which is what you're going to hear from joe biden
1:43 am
tonight, that forget all of the -- these high-minded policy debates, we have a more urgent problem in front. us, and that's taking back the white house from donald trump's grasp. >> yeah. it's fascinating, the whole democrats no matter what will be painted as socialists as pete buttigieg said. it's this republican party, this president of the united states picking winners and losers in the economy, raising taxes on working people, consumers with tariffs. you know, all of these things that were so, you know, would never have happened in a republican party in the past happening today. kind of a fascinating socialism irony. nice to see you, sabrina. >> thank you so much for getting up early for us. there's still ten more democrats taking the stage tonight including the front-runner, joe biden, kamala harris. we saw what happened during the first debate. fireworks potentially tonight. the second night of the senior citizen democratic debates begin -- cnn democratic debates begin at 9:00 p.m. only on cnn. as the candidates get ready to debate, north korea launches
