donald trump back on the campaign trail last night here in rochester, new hampshire. fresh off the performance of the cnn debate. he held an event fielding questions from voters in new hampshire. something he doesn't do all that often. it got off to a pretty awkward start when one voter said the problem with america right now is muslims. >> this man, i like this guy. >> i'm from white plains. amen, okay? we have a problem in this country. it's called muslims. we know our current president is one. you know he's not even american. birth certificate, man. anyway, we have training camps growing where they want to kill us. that's my question. when can we get rid of them? >> we are looking at a lot of different things. a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there. we will look at that and plenty of other things. >> reporter: you can see donald trump seemed to be caught off guard by the question. he did not refute the premise.
that silence may bring him additional criticism. he is appearing on the campaign trail later today in south carolina. back to you. >> thank you, sara. you could see the people behind donald trump shaking their heads and noting you could see donald trump's supporters cringing at that. also, you know, debbie waserman schultz saying that donald trump's racism knows no bounds. saying we are looking at getting rid of muslims is vile rhetoric. the dnc chairman said all of the republican candidates need to come out immediately and denounce this otherwise they are agreeing with him. >> hillary clinton not buying trump not challenging the supporter. she personally tweeted donald trump not denouncing false statements about the president and hateful rhetoric about
muslims just plain wrong. and the washington post sayin d the media wants to make this issue about obama. the bigger issue is that obama is waging war against christians. this is causing such a controversy about him not answering that supporter. i would not be surprised if you hear trump talk about it today. >> one from his campaign said he did not hear the whole statement. >> we can give him the benefit of the doubt. >> for the moment. donald trump complaining about the length of the debate. he compared it to the epic film "gone with the wind." >> the thing that made me upset is the three hours. to stand up for three hours and answering questions in the form of a debate and i think the viewers probably, frankly, i
think they would have done as well as they have done. they set a record in the history of cnn. as well as they have done, it would be been better. it was too much and too long. i imagine people get bored with that. >> hillary clinton responding to the attacks aimed at her from the debate. clinton warned gop leaders in congress against cutting off federal funding for planned parenthood. suzanne malveaux is with the clinton campaign and has the latest. >> reporter: good morning, alison and christine. hillary clinton is in a three-day swing in the critical state of new hampshire. that gave her a big boost in 2008. she is struggling now. her opponent bernie sanders, ahead in four polls here in the state. one of the polls indicating that he is 23 points ahead when it comes to new voters and independent voters. she has to answer the criticism.
she has been talking about the e-mail controversy for the summer. this has weighed on her campaign in the race in the critical state. she is taking on the critics, including those from the candidates from the gop debate. she talked to wolf blitzer about the specifics. one of the people, the only gop candidate, female candidate on the stage, carly fiorina. this that she said. if you want to stump a democrat, then ask them about hillary clinton's accomplishments as secretary of state. >> this is just the usual back and forth political attacks. the kinds of things you say when you are on a debate stage and you don't have much else to say. if anybody's interested, you know, there's a long list about what i have done and i'm very proud of it. you can read my book "hard choices." read how i negotiated a cease-fire with israel and
hamas. how i put together the coalition against the sanctions iran. you can read about what i did as the first lady. this is just the silly season. >> reporter: hillary clinton taking on the republican candidates and their call for defunding planned parenthood as well as republicans in congress threatening to shutdown the government over it. she defended the organization saying it provides critical care for women's health care. later today, she will talk about making college affordable when she travels to concord and on to maine to rally the troops. >> thank you. scott walker adjusting campaign strategy after a subdued performance in the debate. the wisconsin governor got the least screen time against any candidate on the stage. walker will put all his eggs in the iowa basket. he is now down to mid single
digits. house republicans are planning to force votes to defund planned parenthood today, but there doesn't seem the measures will get through the senate. some house conservatives are threatening a government shutdown if the budget includes the funding for planned parenthood. republicans are introducing legislation to outlaw all abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. white house taking the threat of the government shutdown seriously. president obama meeting with harry reid and nancy pelosi. they insist they are willing to back stop gap measures to keep the government running as long as planned parenthood is off the table. >> i hope we are all in agreement. democrats and republicans, we should not have a government shutdown. that's costly to the government and to the american people as it was during the government shutdown before. so we're optimistic. we want to be cooperative.
we want to negotiate in good faith. >> with only 13 days left before a possible government shutdown, pelosi admits she and boehner have not even scheduled talks. a federal court over religious based employers to force them to provide health coverage for contraception. the lower court decision was upheld for iowa and michigan and missouri colleges. it conflicts with other court rulings before it. under the latest hearing, it will not have to provide coverage for birth control. the $500 million plan was a core part of the strategy to defeat the terrorist group. the program is failing according to the pentagon. they are debating whether to accept a russian proposal
designed to end the syrian civil war. russia's increased presence in syria is a concern for the pentagon. using new types of air and ground weapons supplied by the russians. army sergeant bowe bergdahl had a severe mental defect when he left his built base in afghanistan and captured by the taliban. that is the argument used by his defense team at the hearing in texas. bergdahl faces a possible life sentence for endangering the soldiers who searched for him. his lawyers appear poised to make the case that the military indirectly shares the blame for bergdahl's behavior because they knew he was unfit to serve. time for an early start on your money. the federal reserve left the interest rates unchanged. european shares are lower. in the end, no change to
interest rates. global growth concerns and low inflation in the u.s. and weak growth are reasons to keep interest rates low. something that janet yellen said caught my attention. the u.s. economy is performing well. still the federal reserve with two meetings left to raise rates before the end of the year. >> in the end, inflation and global pressures causing them to hold. and thousands of migrants and refugees strand. more countries shutting borders as the crisis unfolds. we are live next. diabetes, steady is exciting.

migrants pouring out of the middle east and africa. germany is considering overhauling the asylum codes to stem the influx and croatia is closing roads to serbia until further notice. that could force a crush of asylum seekers to take fields littered with land mines from the balkans from the 1990s. we have ben wedeman with more. >> reporter: there are buses coming to take these refugees and migrants away. five buses have taken away 250 to 300 people. they are lined up over 1,000. there are thousands more in other parts of town waiting to get out. it does seem that the flows continue. we understand they will be moved
to the croatia capital. there were croatian police. as the migrants got on the buses, they said thank you to the officers as they did so. so far, the atmosphere has been relatively calm. it is early in the day. if this flow continues, what we are essentially seeing the problem, the crisis, merely changing location. there is no move forward to actually resolving this problem because germany can change its asylum rules. various countries can close its borders. people are still flowing out of afghanistan and iraq and syria through turkey into greece. this problem is essentially being addressed at the wrong end. the germans can do whatever they like, but the problem is in afghanistan and syria and iraq. there is no movement toward resolving those. these tens of thousands of
refugees and migrants who find themselves in europe. they don't know what to do or where they are going. i spoke to people as they were getting on the bus. they said we are just getting on the bus because we can't stay here any longer. they are sleeping out in the open and in people's yards and by the road. garbage strewn all over the place. very little in the way of services provided. they are just moving on in hopes of they will be able to get a roof over their heads and a warm shower. an end to their journey is nowhere in sight. >> one europe with lots of different philosophies about what to do about it and no action really in a cohesive manner. ben, thank you. a man charged in trying to join isis. he and eight other men met up to
15 times in mosques and parks to figure out how to finance their trip. he believed joining the terrorist group would help his fellow muslims. he faces up to 15 years in prison. a friend of charleston church shooter dylann roof arrested by the fbi for concealing knowledge of the crime. joey meek's trailer is where roof stayed before he killed the nine people in the emanuel ame church. meek said he called the fbi after he recognized roof. the death toll reaching 20 after the flooding in utah. crews found another body at the zion national park on thursday. that brings the number of victims found in the park to seven. four men and three women were visiting from nevada and california. park rangers say they were simply washed away. 13 women and children were also
killed in hildale after a wall of water washed away their cars. two more bodies discovered in the california wildfires. that brings the total killed to five. officials say cooler temperatures and rain are helping firefighters make practici progress. the butte fire is one of the most destructive in california history. more than 450 buildings have been destroyed, including 250 homes. >> people don't have anything. that's probably the biggest thing. >> look at the devastation and knowing people died is hard. >> you can't believe it. you think you can until you go by a place and you see it and say wow. >> wow. now of course the question is will the favorable weather hold for firefighters this weekend. let's bring in meteorologist derek van dam. >> good morning, alison and christine. it is indeed a tough week for
residents of lake county in california. the valley fire, even though we received over .50 of rainfall this week helping suppress some of the fire conditions, we do have an end to that precipitation and drier and warmer weather is settling in. 73,000 acres burned so far. 35% containment with this particular fire. several hundred structures burned with several thousand currently threatened. the three-day forecast. you can see how temperatures will soar in the 90s. the precipitation forecast for the next five days is looking bleak. much of california staying dry. elsewhere, we have a cold front dipping south to create stronger weather today. kansas city to chicago, large hail and damaging winds are possible. we have warm weather across the central u.s. and the east coast starts to heat up in the mid 80s for d.c. and new york.

alison. the question is what is wrong with peyton manning. he threw one touchdown pass in the three previous starts. before we get to manning, you have to see this. safety eric berry gets a sensational ovation by the crowd. it was his first regular season home game after being diagnosed with lymphoma last season. manning finishes with three touchdown passes. on the next drive, chiefs with 36 seconds left. charles coughs it up. bradley scoops and scores. what an incredible comeback by the broncos. 31-24 in kansas city. in baseball, the mets say they will stop featuring a kiss cam joke at citifield that some fans call homophobic. some mets would show opposing players with a big pink heart as a frame around them as a joke.
the mets released a statement yesterday saying, we have on occasion included players from opposing teams in our popular kiss cam feature. intended to be lighthearted, we offended some. we apologize for doing so and no longer will include players in the feature. the organization is wholly supportive of a respectful environment at games. speaking of kiss cams. former president and first lady jimmy and rosalyn carter at the braves game last night. bring it on in. the smooch cam. so good to see the happy couple at the game. looking great. great to see president carter not letting his battle with cancer keeping his spirits down. we wish them all the best with his fight. guys. >> good to see that positive spirit. what he is going through. he has the big smile on his face. >> they are a great couple.

growing where they want to kill us. that's my question. when can we get rid of them. >> we are looking at a lot of things. a lot of people are saying that and a lot of people are saying bad things are happening out there. we will look at that and plenty of other things. >> reporter: you can see donald trump seemed to be caught off guard by the question. he did not refute the premise. that silence may bring him criticism. we will hear from him later on today in south carolina. back to you. >> trump did not respond to the reporters challenging that claim. the spokesperson said trump did not hear that part of the supporters statement. as you recall, donald trump has questioned the president's birth certificate himself. hillary clinton apparently not buying it. she tweeted donald trump not denouncing false statements about the president. cut it out. she said. trump for his part sent a statement to the washington post. the media wants to make this
issue about obama. the issue is obama is waging war against christians. christians need support in the country. i have to tell you. the dnc chair immediately issuing a statement calling this all hateful. she said the comments that he would be quote/unquote, looking at getting rid of muslims is racism that shows no bounds for trump. she called on all of the gop candidates to denounce this otherwise they are tactically agreeing with him. roll the video. you can see the cringes of the trump supporters behind him. >> it is awkward for everybody behind him. you see some people laughing. >> people shaking their heads. if you look at the people shaking their heads or making a face or cringing and talking to each other when this guy is saying that. donald trump, again, maybe he did not hear the whole comment.
he doesn't give town halls where he answers the questions. usually he is talking to the crowd. this one certainly a moment that will dominate today. >> it will be interesting if he comes out and clarifies where he stands on that. donald trump complaining about the three-hour length of the debate. appearing on talk shows the morning after the debate. trump called the length unacceptable and compared it to "gone with the wind." >> the thing that made me most upset and everybody else was the three hours. to be standing up for three hours answering questions in the form of a debate. i think the viewers, they would have done as well as they have done. they set a record in the history of cnn. they could have done better if it was an hour shorter. it was too long. i imagine people get bored with that. >> some of the most famous debates lincoln douglass debates
