paper. i know when president obama came in to office, he inherited a trade agreement with south korea. i along with other members of the cabinet pushed hard to get a better agreement. now looking back on it, it doesn't have the results we thought it would have in terms of access to the markets. >> you are saying you could not support this as of today? >> what i know about it as of today i am not in favor of what i have learned about it. >> clinton is in washington for a hispanic caucus event tonight. president obama is speaking at the same dinner creating the possibility of an awkward moment. the former secretary showing most of the democratic rivals oppose this trade deal. bernie sanders welcomed her change of heart saying this is a as after of policies.

again, tuesday night, the very first democratic presidential debate hosted by cnn and facebook. our coverage begins in las vegas at 8:30 p.m. eastern time. >> i like the way you reveal it like a sporting event. >> it's sports and then some. on the republican side, controversy is swirling around ben carson this morning. rupert murdock touting carson as a real black president. that was after pointing to a "new york magazine" story with discontent of president obama among african-americans. this is after carson took heat with the oregon shooting victims saying they should have attacked the shooter. matthew downing tells cnn via facebook, i'm fairly upset he said that. no one can truly understand the actions you would take in a situation unless you lived it. we are learning that carson did in fact live through a similar
situation and did not fight back. he told sirius xm he was held at gun point at a popeye's fried chicken restaurant in baltimore. >> puts the gun in my ribs. i just said i believe you want the guy behind the counter. >> in that calm way? >> he said, okay. >> donald trump in iowa. he is campaigning there. he has proclaimed himself a better politician than those in 2012 who surged atop of the polls and faded. >> for three months i have been a politician. you know for three months, we have been number one. they used to say maybe michele bachmann, nice woman. she was there for a week. we have been there for three months. >> rand paul having fun with
hillary clinton's new book. clinton sent all of the republican candidates a signed copy of her book as a way to explain her accomplishments at secretary of state. for rand paul, it may not solve his fund raising issues, but he put his book on e-bay with the note get your own signed copy of a great fiction book. bidding is up over $1,300. the race to replace house majority leader john boehner got more complicated. kevin mccarthy is still the frontrunner with utah's jason chaffetz. now a group is throwing support behind a florida congress member daniel webster. the house freedom cause has 40 members. that is enough clout to deny mccarthy the majority he needs. the outgoing speaker is appearing on the tonight show
with jimmy fallon. the coast guard suspending search and rescue efforts for the crew of el faro. the decision is a painful one of the families of the 33 people on board to accept. >> i love him. i just want him back. even if it is just his body. i want him back. >> we all do. >> a navy salvage team has been called in to locate the ship which could be miles beneath the atlantic ocean. developing this morning. the syrian military claims it is launching a wide scale offensive. the syrian army chief of staff is crediting russian air strikes with creating military initiative that syria is now
maintaining. russia's defense minister claimed overnight that it hit isis infrastructure targets in syria. cruise missiles launched. this as the united states says it will not cooperate with russia. u.s. will not cooperate in the fight in syria. the pentagon confirms two u.s. aircraft had to be diverted to keep a safe distance from russia fighter jets in the same air space. we have our correspondent arwa damon live in istanbul. what is the situation on the ground? >> reporter: it could change the situation on the ground. what we have been seeing is the impact of the russian air strikes being fairly at this stage decisive shift to the syrian regime when it comes to
domination of the battle field although it has not resulted in syrian forces taking over concrete territory. it has resulted in fierce clashes and bolstered the morale of the military. the syrian army chief said that the russian military air strikes diminish the fighting capacity of isis and other terrorist groups. this is very critical because nato, united states and turkey all dispute russia claiming it is targeting isis and al qaeda linked nusra front. syria does consider almost all, if not in their entirety, rebel groups to be terrorist organizations. also have the u.s. saying it will not cooperate with russia
because clearly the air missions that had to be aboard the united states will have to find some level of coordination. as we are speaking right now, nato defense ministers are holding a very critical meeting with nato secretary-general saying prior to the meeting that nato had a readiness task force. ensuring that nato and allies including turkey, underscore how critical and dangerous the situation is. john. >> arwa damon, a critical situation and one that is changing on the ground with russian troops and i should say syrian troops on the move. an apology from president obama to the head of doctors without borders. the president promised full cooperation in a phone call with
the president joanne lew after the air strike on the hospital in kunduz. >> the investigation is underly und way. it will provide a full fact finding investigation and full cooperation. >> the white house has characterized the attack on the hospital as a mistake. despite receiving an apology, the president of doctors without borders is demanding an independent investigation. an awkward and embarrassing day head for michael horn on capitol hill. the house energy committee is investigating the voegs volkswa
