4:00 pm
i'm a very, very big second amendment person. one of the things that i have seen that is so absolutely ridiculous totally is taking the guns away from the military. you know we lost some great people recently. great, great people. really highly decorated military people that know how to wear their weapons. they were in a gun-free zone. and they were killed. one badly wounded. but killed. and they had guns, that wouldn't have happened. maybe one instead of five. could have happened. but they were killed. and it is really a sad situation. we would give our guns back to the military. hard to believe we're even talking about it. hard to believe. you might have heard. it is sort of interesting. the polls came out. and they said trump won the debate. the polls say trump won the
4:01 pm
debate. and they say the newest poll just came out this morning. trump, 36. carson, 12. reuters came out, trump, 35, carson, 14. jeb is 8. he wants common core. and illegal immigration. those two things i think are not so good. so we are honored by that. i will tell you we will keep that second amendment. when we had the two prisoners escape, rough guys, dangerous, upstate new york. the first people ever to escape from that prison, a woman and her husband were on tv. they were petrified. she always was against guns. her husband wanted them. we are talking for protection. the woman was always fighting
4:02 pm
him, always fighting him. when the two prisoners escaped and they were in the vicinity of that house, that neighborhood, that area, she felt so good having those guns. and she went on television. all these years i have been fighting my husband. now i want guns. i thought i would share that story. >> question related to ethanol. the federal renewable fuel standard displaces middle east oil with homegrown domestic fuels. as president, will you support our national security with the renewable fuel standard? yes. very strong yes. ethanol is a terrific product. i am totally in favor of ethanol 100%. and i will support it.
4:03 pm
>> religious liberty is is under attack. what will you do to ensure people of faith don't suffer for speaking out or acting upon matters of deeply held religious beliefs? >> well, i think you can see where i'm coming from. and i feel so strongly. in fact, it was mentioned in my second paragraph. religious liberty is so important. and i will fight for your liberty like nobody can fight. because i'm a good fighter. i will tell you that. i'm a good fighter. and i win. i win a lot. we will win. this all talk no action politicians. they will give you 20 minutes of how they are going to solve the problems having to do with liberties and nothing will ever happen. i know them all. it's not going to happen. i will fight and get it done. one thing coming over in the car with some of the folks in the
4:04 pm
car who are friends with all of you, great people. i was talk building the word christmas. they don't have christmas anymore. they don't put it up. they don't use the word. you take your boy to macy's and they don't have the word. i want christmas used. i want people to be able to celebrate christmas. somebody said that's not the biggest part. it is a big part. every year it gets worse and worse. before you know it you won't be able to go to church the way they are doing it. we have nobody fighting for us. do you know one thing i have to say a person on top of national security, one of the top people in this country said something to me i was amazed at. over the last couple of years, if you're in syria and you're a muslim, it is very easy to come
4:05 pm
into the united states. i'm talking about over the last few years. if you're a muslim and you come in, you can come in easy. if you're a christian in syria where they cut off your head, where they drown you, you are talking medieval times. you wouldn't believe. but if you're a christian from syria, it is is almost impossible, fitter alley impossible to come into the united states. that's the way we have our country now. that's what we have been reduced to. believe me, i will protect you. i will fight for you. nobody will get you more. and i'm one of you. just remember that. thank you all very much. i appreciate it. it's been a great honor. thank you. thank you very much.
4:06 pm
>> there you have it donald trump live in des moines, iowa addressing a big crowd and quite a lot of applause in des moines. key, key for the evangelical votes. so critical in the iowa caucuses. we just want to take from you what we heard from him in person since he did not correct someone in a town hall that he host odd thursday who called president obama a muslim and not an american. he went ahead and read the five tweets that he put out today. the first one, am i morally obligated to defend the president every time someone says something bad or controversial about him? i don't think so. that was met with loud applause and cheer. they said my first priority as president in my administration will be to protect against
4:07 pm
religious administration. questions on everything from israel to the iran nuclear deal, the second amendment, our founding fathers. he was asked about ethanol. said he was a big supporter of ethanol. that's huge in the state of iowa. we will analyze all of this. stay with us. much more of what they think about trump's remarks next. iflike i love shrimp, red lobster's endless shrimp... ...is kind of a big deal. it's finally back, with as much shrimp as you want, any way you want 'em. one taste of these new pineapple habanero coconut shrimp bites, and i already want more. they even brought back wood-grilled teriyaki shrimp! yeah, you heard me: teriyaki. and really: what's not to love about... ...buttery garlic shrimp scampi? here, the sweet, spicy, crispy possibilities are as endless as the shrimp. and yeah, they're endless, but they won't last forever.

4:09 pm
4:10 pm
well, i had quite a couple of days, as you noticed. i did a very innocent town hall with about 3,000 people, a at least. and the first question i said, this can only happen to me. you all know what the first question is. and the press is going crazy. they all wanted to see me. i said for the first time in my life i got in trouble for not saying anything. i didn't say anything. i was in trouble all over the place. fox, cbs, cnn. it was the biggest news story. i even beat out the pope. the only time i will ever beat out the pope. >> all right. let's get some analysis now. m.j. is live in iowa. we heard donald trump speak. what do you make of what we heard from donald trump tonight?
4:11 pm
>> poppy, we just heard donald trump make a strong appeal to the evangelical voters. this is important in a state like iowa where there is a sizable evangelical and born-again christian as well. he talked about the christian community, their religious community is at stake. he would protect their religious liberties. he ended by saying i am one of you. just remember that. clearly something that is on his mind. an appeal that he is really trying to make. this is particularly important as we have seen in the polls recently. ben carson, who talks about his faith, very openly on the campaign trail, catching up to donald trump in both the state of iowa as well as nationally. something that trump and carson have traded box over recently. it is clear he wants to
4:12 pm
emphasize he too is a christian. >> he said my first priority of my administration will be to protect religious freedom. i want to play for you what he said back in july. this is when he was asked if he ever asks god for forgiveness. >> i'm not sure i have. i just try to do a better job. i don't think so. i think if i do something wrong, i just try to make it right. i don't bring god into the picture. when we go in church and drink my wine, which is the only wine i drink, and cracker, that is a form of asking for forgiveness. i do that as often as possible because i feel cleansed. >> that compared to what we heard from donald trump tonight playing to the evangelical voter, very different, right, m.j.? >> when he made a comment about
4:13 pm
the wine and little cracker, they raised their eyebrows and they thought maybe this is where his poll numbers start to slip. i wonder if ben carson and his numbers going up, whether it is a concern for someone like trump to talk the fact that he says he is a religious man, spiritual person and trying to appeal to this evangelical crowd which will be very important in determining whoever gets the republican nomination. >> absolutely right. thank you for joining us tonight. donald trump wrapping up the marks at the freedom coalition in des moines. i want to bring in our political insiders. the trump co-chair of rockingham county in new hampshire. former republican communications director on capitol hill. and kayla mckenna, contributor to the blaze founder of real
4:14 pm
ratings.com and third year at yale -- how could i say yale? harvard law school. i thought it was very interesting when he said when john mccain was asked a similar question about president obama from someone in a town hall in 2008, that person called the president an arab, muslim. john mccain stopped that person and corrected them. donald trump said he didn't and he doesn't have a moral obligation to. he said mccain ripped a microphone out of a woman's hands which i think was a little harsh, don't you think? and he got applause. >> i disagree with him. he said do i have a moral obligation to run around and correct everything that someone says about another politician. when you're paying for it, you're the one that bought the
4:15 pm
mike time and you're the one that invited someone and somebody at your event crosses a line, it is your obligation and duty, especially when you're saying i want to be the leader of the free world, to at the bare minimum lead in that situation to say, look, i even looked into it. and you can make a joke about it. he is an american. this guy said he is not american. that's where donald trump really could hurt himself in this campaign. if you want to be a leader, you have to do this at your campaign event when you're the guy in charge. that's just the bare minimum of being a true leader. >> kayly, let me go to you. i see you shaking your head there. remember donald trump then said we need this question. and the man in the audience proceeded. >> but he did say this is my first question and last and looked to the side. you're acting as if he acquiesced with the comment. he didn't at all. donald trump was silent.
4:16 pm
he didn't want to get involved is in this issue. i don't blame him. this is not a political issue. it has nothing to do with policy. if barack obama wants to defend his faith, he can do that. that's not his role. he has no obligation to do that. >> is is barack obama an american? >> yes. . but it's not donald trump's in. >> you should at least at the bare minimum correct that. >> it is not donald trump's job. he has to stick to the issues. can you fault him for that? >> i expect leaders to be classy when it comes to these types of things. maybe that's a better way of putting i. if you're at my house and someone says you're not an american citizen, i'm going to defend you whether you're there or not because it's the classy thing to do. even if it may not get you the applause line at your event. >> let me jump in. tara, lou, i want you to weigh in. i want to show how john mccain handled a similar incident in 2008. let's roll it.
4:17 pm
>> i can't trust obama. i have read about hip. and he's not -- he's a -- he's an arab. >> no, ma'am. he is a decent family man, citizen that i just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues. that's what this campaign is all about. he's not. thank you. >> your the co-chair in rockingham county, new hampshire. do you think donald trump could take a page from john mccain or are you fully supportive of the way he handled it? >> i'm fully support issive of it. i was two rows ahead of the individual who made those horrific comments. that individual was making personal attacks against muslims. and mr. trump could hardly hear it. the room was at least 110 degrees with over 3,000 people
4:18 pm
there. mr. trump was struggling to even hear the first part of the question. when he heard the second part of the question about muslim extremist camps, he said it's something we should look into. for people to second-guess what happened that were not there is ludicrous. >> he tweeted five times about this. he never tweeted he didn't hear it. instead he said am i morally obligated. >> i think his campaign manager came out on that particular subject today. i was there. he did not hear the first part of the question. i think that's a very reasonable approach. >> donald trump's story on this has changed multiple times. the campaign had a day to think
4:19 pm
about what was the best way to react to this. initially they didn't say he didn't necessarily hear him. he said just now because i didn't say anything i was scrutinized for it. which was it? he would have said i didn't hear the question. if i had heard the question i certainly would have corrected him for making those kind of misstatements. i agree with ben 100% on this. it's the class where way to handle it. is trump morally obligated, which is a good way for his campaign to come out, nice spin on that, to defend obama every time someone says something offensive? no, he isn't. but this is the problem. this has opened up the issue again and giving the democrats ammunition against the republican party. relitigating now the whole birth thing. we have been over this so many years ago. if anybody saw hillary clinton's response yesterday, she looked presidential. she was self-righteous going on
4:20 pm
and on about how republicans are because of things like this. this in the long run gives the democrats ammunition. sit a flex from the actual issues. here we are talk building donald trump in an issue litigated years ago that should be put to rest instead of talking about the issues, talking about hillary clinton tanking in the polls. >> hold that thought. all of you. hold your thoughts. i promise you will get better during a commercial break. you can see them right when we come back.

4:23 pm
welcome back. donald trump just wrapping up remarks at the iowa faith and freedom coalition's 15th annual
4:24 pm
family bank yet. a presidential forum just a few moments ago in des moines, iowa. this is the first campaign appearance since thursday night's town hall where he did not correct a supporter for calling president obama a muslim and not an american. he read again his tweets from today regarding the controversy and he talked about a double standard and how the united states deals with muslims and christians. let's play it. >> if you're a muslim and you come in, you can come in easy. if you're a christian from syria where they cut off your head, where they drown you, where they do things that you're talk building medieval times, you wouldn't believe. but if you're a christian from syria, it's almost impossible -- in fact, it is virtually impossible to come into the united states. okay. and that's the way we have our country now. that's what we have been reduced to.
4:25 pm
believe me, i will protect you and i will file the for you. and nobody will fight better and nobody will get you more. >> donald trump also calling the first priority of his administration should he become president protecting religious freedom. back to our panel, cnn political commentators tara, kayly, ben ferguson in dallas. and the co-chair of the trump campaign in rockingham county, new hampshire, lou, with us. he also attacked the media in this one saying, many of them, lou, are dishonest. he did not do the q&a expected after that event. notice insight into that? >> no. mr. trump, though, has given more q&a to reporters than any other candidate. mrs. clinton should be doing the same. she is finally starting to engage with the reporting
4:26 pm
community. but mr. trump is very good in that particular area. i think mr. trump, if elected, will be a president for all people. and christians, muslims and everyone else. and i think an issue of religious freedom in this country is is under attack. i think mr. trump will elevate that as a concern. mr. trump doesn't wear his religion on his sleeve, unlike some other people in the race. mr. trump is a private person when it comes to religion. i think that's good. i think the separation of church and state is a founding principle in this country. and mr. trump wants to hold that principle. but i do think he believes in the almighty. will be a great supporter for christians, jews, muslims and everyone else. >> tara, when you look at the poll numbers, this evangelical vote is so critical nationwide, but especially iowa. in the last politte shows trump
4:27 pm
was trailing dr. ben carson with the evangelical vote. what does something like tonight do for him in that respect? >> the reason why ben carson is ahead with evangelicals, they recognize ben carson is authentic and sincere in his christian beliefs. donald trump was very dismissive -- it was offensive to me as a christian who believes in communion to have him talk about his little wine and little cracker like it is part of a comedy routine. you are talk building the body of christ here. that is a major tenet in christianity. he talked about it like eh. and forgiveness from god, he blew that off. a am i the only one when he walked out on his stage carrying his bible that rolled their eyes saying you've got to be kidding me. he goes to a christian event, think he is going to go on stage holding his bible and showing a picture of his community and
4:28 pm
saying, see, i'm just like you. that's pandering you. >> why are we questioning barack obama's faith and not donald trump? >> hey, guys. please. let kayly finish here. i want kayly to finish her thought. is and then everyone can jump in. >> i don't know why donald trump's faith is fair game here. the evangelical vote is his achilles' heel. ben carson does have the social gravitas. he looked at evangelicals and said i will fight for you. that is something christians want to hear. we were warned by chief justice roberts that christianity was going to come under attack. we have this decision where people are going to go into church and push the boundaries of this decision. that is an important thing. i'm going to take him on his word with that. >> tara and ben. >> he's going to have a busy first day in officement the first day he promises to do the
4:29 pm
iran deal, build a wall, and now guarantee religious freedom his first day. he is going to do this on his first day. it is just unbelievable. >> let me just say this real quick. the concern i have with donald trump about his religion, it doesn't seem that this is reality for him before now. walking out on stage with a bible is not consistent with what donald trump's past has been. a man that opens up a casino and multiple casinos is not exactly a guy walking around reading his bible. the bible is pretty clear about owning a casino. when you come out there and you start acting like you are this big evangelical but your business practices are a 180 at that, i look at your life's work. building casinos in your life's work is not hard for an evangelical christian's
4:30 pm
philosophy. >> i want to get lou in here. you are part of the trump camp. what do you have to say to what ben brings up there? >> i think it is ludicrous. >> how is it ludicrous? is the bible clear about gambling? >> it has absolutely nothing to do with his religious beliefs? >> it isn't? so all the commandments don't have anything to do with whether you're breaking them, gambling and owning a casino. >> you are criticizing him because he was involved in casinos. >> is that a christian practice to gamble and own a casino that can help ruin people's lives? >> that's your opinion. that is your opinion. that's for the people to decide. and i can tell you this. the people in new hampshire are very much in favor of mr. trump. >> i'll make it very clear. i don't know many hard-core leadership role evangelical christians that own casinos and get people to come in and have
4:31 pm
addiction problems with gambling and then walk on stage with a bible. let's be real honest about this. >> or walk around with a bible to say, look, i'm religious. see? i swear. that's pandering. >> again, we can sit here and criticize mr. trump about his religious beliefs, which are closely held. unlike president obama who went to a church with reverend wright. we have all forgotten that. >> donald trump -- let me make this clear. barack obama is not my moral standard. he is at one of the lowest points. he is in favor of abortion. in favor of all of these things that i disagree with religiously. if you keep comparing donald trump to barack obama there is a problem. >> barack obama is not on the ballot. >> i have to get a break in. clearly a lot more to discuss. ben, lou, kayly, tara, thank you
4:32 pm
all. don't go out too late tonight. tomorrow morning 9:00 a.m. eastern only here on cnn. another story we are following very closely is a historic day in cuba. the pope has landed on his trip. he will spend three days in cuba and then come to the united states. one of our incredibly lucky reporters and good friend of mine, russell flores was on the plane with the pope himself. >> reporter: bobbi, i spent about 45 seconds in a one on one conversation with the pope. he offered me a blessing. we have the video for you coming up. i'm angela, and i quit smoking with chantix. for ten long years i was ready to quit. but i couldn't do it on my own. i needed help and chantix was there. and i did it. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions
4:33 pm
while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side effect is nausea. i never thought i would be a non-smoker and i'm so proud. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.

4:35 pm
right now pope francis is in cuba getting a closer look at the transition he helped create
4:36 pm
in that nation. he rode in the pope mobile in the streets of havana to crowds of cheers. ecstatic people welcoming him. he will be in cuba three days. he heads to the east coast of the united states. raul castro was on hand to greet the holy father as soon as he got off the papal plane. he gave a speech in his native spanish, urging people to freedom and the means and the space to practice their religion and offered criticism of the sharp preseparations people have placed in the past. first of all, we have to show the picture and talk about the remarkable encounter you had. >> reporter: it was a remarkable moment indeed, poppy. i really don't have words to describe the emotion going through my body at that point in time. but we talked for about 45 seconds. it of course flew by.
4:37 pm
i talked to one of his friends, a priest, before getting on the plane. he told me you should give the pope a hug and tell him i'm happy on the plane. i of course didn't dare to give the holy father a hug. but as soon as i told him the name of the priest he blew up. he said, or h, i remember him. two days he was asking me questions. everybody on the plane started asking me questions. it was a remarkable, remarkable moment. >> can we talk about his remarks when we got off? there was a certain part of his speech that he gave. where if you really read into it, he was criticizing the castro regime and sort of years and years of the same regime. and he talked a lot about freedom and openness. >> you know, i was a bit surprised quite frankly to hear him say those words, to say, you know, and the church is here. we are renewing our commitment to help the people of cuba and
4:38 pm
make sure that the country is in a path to justice and reconciliation and freedom. that to me was surprising to hear the pope say that because you and i know that there's a delicate dance that the pope is dancing throughout this entire trip. what he says in cuba definitely sets the stage for the united states. so is he going to be a little harsh on cuba? is he going to be a little harsh on congress? we don't know. this was a taste. i really think this was a taste of what to expect. >> for people that don't know the critical role that the vatican and this pope played and the falling of diplomatic relations between the u.s. and cuba, walk us through that event. >> it's important to know there are a lot of of work playing out in cuba.
4:39 pm
same relationship with the castros for a while. so that has helped. we learned that, you know, since 2003, for example, some of the political prisoners were starting to get released. and so if you take all of those years of massaging and, you know, pretty much working the diplomacy within the country, and then you've got pope francis, who really has extended an olive branch to both countries and kind of bringing everyone together, it was the right people at the right time, poppy. >> oh, it's been fascinate to go watch. we will continue live coverage here for the next week plus of the pope's historic trip to cuba is and here in the united states. have an amazing time on assignment. thank you. >> reporter: thank you. when pope francis arrives in philadelphia, that is where he will be next weekend, he will make a unique side trip there. he will also make history. he will be the first pope ever
4:40 pm
to visit a u.s. prison. he will meet with some 100 inmates at the correctional facility on the outskirts of philadelphia. this week we went there to speak with some of those inmates. >> i'm very excited. >> did you think you would end up in prison ever? >> well, not actually. but being around certain people i ended up in this position. >> i think a lot of the inmates received a message so often they're not worth while, they are somehow less, they're not fully human, not worth what everyone else is worth. to have the pope come here is to tell them, yes, you are really created in the image of fold. you really have value. you are wonderfully made. that is something they need to hear. they need to see themselves in a different way. >> we're not only going to meet
4:41 pm
the pope. we made him his chair. >> they will give it to him as a gift when he visits there next sunday. watch the full story from that prison this thursday on the lead with jake tapper, 4:00 p.m. eastern and our show next weekend. we will be right back. the possibility of a flare swas almost always on my mind. thinking about what to avoid, where to go... and how to deal with my uc. to me, that was normal. until i talked to my doctor. she told me that humira helps people like me get uc under control and keep it under control when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems,

serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. raise your expectations. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, control is possible.

a syrian reef gee family is calling the vatican home. after personally requesting that parishes take in refugees. nearly half a million refugees across the mediterranean sea and flooded into europe. nearly 3,000 died just trying to make the journey, according to the u.n. refugee agency.
4:45 pm
nighted nations world food program has been providing assistance to millions. lebanon, turkey, iraq, and egypt. but it is struggling to continue. many of those refugees are living on 50 cents a day. the executive director of the world food program and her role posted at the center of the crisis zone. she joins me now. thank you for being with me. >> thank you so much, poppy, for having me. >> you and i have spoken extensively in the past approximate this. can you take us into these camps and what these refugees are going through. i think it will help people understand more why they are fleeing and risking their lives. >> well, the reality of it is we have been feeding people who have been fleeing the conflict inside syria for over four years now. and inside lebanon, jordan, turkey, iraq, and egypt, there are over 4 million refugees who
4:46 pm
have been the host of those countries, or the guests of those countries for all of that time. >> yeah. >> and throughout that period we have provided them with food assistance. this year the contributions aren't coming in. at the level that's required. so what that means is it has forced us to reduce the amount of food assistance we are provide to go people. the voucher that gives people the ability to purchase their own food, we have cut in half. and as you said, what we are giving now is an average of 50 cents per person per day. but the saddest part is that we've actually cut off 360,000 people since september. those are people who are living in host communities in both jordan and lebanon. those are people who no longer have access to assistance. >> you had the unique experience, you are based in rome. you met with the pope.
4:47 pm
you briefed him on the situation with with syrian refugees. what was that like? >> it was a humbling experience. to sit with someone who has the grace of the pope and explain to him and explain to him at his request what we were doing inside syria, trying to feed 4 million people every month. outside syria, work to go feed 1.9 million people. and hearing him talk about his commitment to making hunger, the reduction, the elimination of hunger and peace part of his mission. for someone like me who spends all of their time trying to bring attention to those who the 60 million refugees who are now trying to find homes across the world, that was heart warming. and as i said, it was gratifying and humbling. and i believe when you have the pope on your side, we can begin to make a difference in the lives of people who require so
4:48 pm
