tv CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin CNN May 25, 2016 11:00am-1:01pm PDT
california, after some violent protests at a campaign rally last night in albuquerque. police are out in full force to prevent similar protests from happening today. we'll stay on top of all of that for you. i'll be back at 5:00 p.m. eastern in the "the situation room." meantime, the news continues right now. hello there. i'm brianna keilar in today for brooke baldwin. soon donald trump will be speaking live in anaheim, california. you can see the scene right now otside of the convention center, just a few protesters there, and as his supporters anticipate his arrival, so are police, who are fully aware of how trump's last rally went just hours ago.
those were anti-trump protesters in albuquerque, new mexico. though broke through barricades and lit fires and smashed a door. they threw rocks outside of the venue where trump was speaking and police responded with pepper spray but did not make any arrests. now law enforcement in anaheim are warning demonstrators not to repeat that behavior. i want to go live now to cnn's sara murray inside the anaheim convention center, and tell us, sara, what is trump saying about how this all went down last night? >> reporter: well, brianna, as usual, donald trump is not mincing any words. he took to twitter to talk about it saying the protesters in new mexico were thugs who were flying the mexican flag. the rally inside was big and beautiful, but outside criminals. right now here in anaheim it seems a little bit more tame outside. there are a couple of protesters, but, of course, as we know, these things can build as the day goes on. this might be a little bit
calmer because it is the middle of the afternoon in anaheim versus an evening event, but clearly tensions running high as they usually are when donald trump goes to a very populated city center and especially like southern california where there is a very high latino population. >> sara murray, thanks very much. we'll continue to watch that in anaheim along with you. there is a new hike for the democratic front-runner hillary clinton. she's holding her own rally right now in buena park, california. it's just a few miles away from the trump event. a just-released audit shows clinton violated federal rules by using a private e-mail server to conduct state business while she was secretary of state. the inspector general report says, quote, at a minimum secretary clinton should have surrendered all e-mails dealing with department business before leaving government service and because she did not do so, she did not comply with the department's policies that were implemented in accordance with the federal records act. cnn justice correspondent evan
perez is joining me live on this. this was a pretty long report. what are we learning? >> reporter: well, brianna, one of the more interesting findings in this report actually is the fact that the inspector general says they could find no -- nobody in the legal staff at the state department or anywhere else who was consulted by the clinton -- by mrs. clinton or her staff before she set up this private server and decided to use this private server in her home in chappaqua, new york, as her only e-mail and her only computer system while she was secretary of state. they said that there were a couple of people, lower level staff who raised some concerns about this back in 2010, and when they raised questions, they were told that it was completely fine, that it had been approved and that they should never bring it up again. the other -- another interesting finding is that the inspector general asked for cooperation from mrs. clinton and her staff and they declined to cooperate.
now, it should be said that mrs. clinton and her staff did do interviews with the house committee that's been investigating benghazi, and, of course, they are now cooperating with the fbi's ongoing inquiry which is still ongoing. we do have a statement from brian fallon, the campaign press secretary that says in part the inspector general documents just show how consistent her e-mail practices were with those of other secretaries and senior officials at the state department who also used personal e-mail. the report shows the problems with the state department's electronics record system were long-standing and there were no precedent for someone in her position having a state department e-mail account until after the arrival of her successor. contrary to false theories advanced for some time now the report notes that her use of personal e-mail was known to officials within the department during her tenure and that there's evidence of a breach of the server. that's an important point.
the inspector general's report did say by the fact that she used this private server did essentially expose government secrets, sensitive government information by using this server. >> you know, security one of the biggest concerns here. all right. etch perez, thanks so much for that. well, hillary clinton getting some tag team help in her brawl with donald trump. senator and fellow senator elizabeth warren slamming donald trump about the predictions it of a forthcoming housing market crash. here he was in an audio book produced for trump university. >> i sort of hope that happens because then people like me would go in and buy, you know, you know, if you're in a good cash position and i'm in a good cash position and then people like me would go in and buy like crazy. if there is a bubble burst, as they call it, you know, you can make a lot of money. >> well, warren is accusing him of cashing in on the housing crisis. here's what she said.
>> donald trump was drooling over the idea of a housing meltdown because it meant he could buy up more property on the cheap. what kind of a man does that? i'll tell you exactly what kind of a man does that. it is a man who cares about no one but himself, a small -- a small insecure money grubber who doesn't care who gets hurt so long as he makes a profit off it. what -- what kind of a man does that? a man who will never be president of the united states. >> and trump fired back. listen to this. he had a pocahontas comparison with warren. take a look. >> hillary clinton has somebody to -- did you ever hear of
pocahontas? it's pocahontas elizabeth war n warren. she is going out, probably the senator that's doing just about the least in the united states senate. she's a total failure. she said she was an indian. she said because her cheek bones her high and she was an indian, that she was native american and, you know, we have these surrogates, people like her, total failures. >> let's talk about this now with austan goolsbee, a hillary clinton supporter and economic adviser to the candidate and barry bennett. he's the senior adviser for the trump campaign and also the former campaign manager for dr. ben carson. i do want to talk about what elizabeth warren said in a moment, but, barry, this comment, this response from donald trump where he references pocahont pocahontas. it's very offensive to native americans. do you -- can you defend him saying that? >> well, i mean, it's -- it was elizabeth warren who pretended to be a native american, not donald trump. that's what i he was pointing to. >> but he's clearly using the
word pocahontas in a pejorative way. >> it's a man who follows elizabeth warren's lead. she flipped five houses bought at foreclosure from people who couldn't afford to pay and profited from it and she did it and now she wants to blame donald trump for talking about it, she did it, put money in her own pocket from people's misfortune. >> austan, what do you say about that? >> look, that's totally outrageous. >> it's true. >> i'm personal friends with elizabeth warren and have been for many years. you heard on the tape donald trump not just as if he were cheering, literally cheering, saying i hope there is a housing collapse. now, he didn't know when he said that that there would be as big a housing collapse as happened so, fine, we'll give him that, but this move is just so classic donald trump. when he does something wrong,
immoral, subject to criticism, just try to change the subject and personally insult whoever it is that said it but, and i don't fault him. if i had said the things that he had said, i wouldn't want to be talking about those things either. i just think it's outrageous to try to personally go after elizabeth warren. >> well, barry, can you readdress what you didn't answer which is the use of the phrase pocahontas or the word poke hadn'tios in a pejorative way. is that defensible? >> well, he's just pointing out that she fraudulently claimed -- >> he's using a pejorative term. >> he's obviously using a pejorative term and trying to totally change the subject. elizabeth warren leveled a pretty serious charge, content charge at donald trump that he had cheered on the housing crisis. >> let me respond to that charge on the housing crisis. >> and he started in with his native american bit.
>> elizabeth warren lined her pockets by buying houses that people couldn't afford to pay their mortgages on and flipped them for money. >> okay. >> we're going to fact check that going forward. we've heard you say that. >> please do. >> okay. i do want to ask you, austan, hillary clinton, her strategy right now is to paint donald trump as someone who profited off of the financial crisis but you have her husband having signed this bill into law that deregulated wall street in a way that very clearly helped cause the 2008 crisis. does she really have a leg to stand on here? >> well, i think she has a leg -- i would make a distinction. many things went wrong with the deregulation of wall street. there's no question about that, and even former president clinton himself has identified that he would not do it the same way, but that does not in my view create the housing bubble because the housing bubble comes sometime after that and there
were a lot of actions made by the bush administration to allow -- >> well, but he signed this bill into law that allowed credit default swaps to not be regulated, derivatives and so essentially these things were in a bit of a black box to wall street regulators. this is something -- >> i don't disagree with that. >> this is something -- >> it wasn't hillary clinton who did that. >> no, certainly, it was her husband. >> it was not hillary clinton who did that. i think it's kind of outrageous to suggest that everything that bill clinton did, including things that he later said i wish he hadn't gone that way, that you're going to pin to hillary clinton. i just think that's not appropriate. >> okay. so we hear you on that certainly. barry, i do want to ask you about something that trump said when he was in new mexico last night. this is about new mexico governor suzanna martinez, a republican. here's what he said. >> since 2000 the number of people on fooled stamps in new mexico has tripled. we have to get your governor to
get going. she's got to do a better job, okay? the governor has got to do a better job. she's not doing the job. hey, maybe i'll run for governor of new mexico. i'll get this place going. okay. ouch, if you're the governor of new mexico here, barry, but i want you to know what you think about this strategy or if there is a strategy because he is going after not only a member of his own party, but this is a woman. this is a hispanic woman, two demographics that he really needs to make inroads with and this doesn't exactly do that. why is he doing this? >> she's been going after him now for a couple of months, so, you know, they don't support each other. we've all known that, but, you know, i mean, he comes to her state and she refuses to meet with him and, you know, that's fine. she can -- she can do whatever she would like in the general election, but he's got plenty of support in new mexico. he's going to win new mexico.
>> were you of the impression that he cared if women or hispanics or other minorities were upset at him? mean, he said a series of unbelievably outrageous things about all of those groups. >> really? what? >> austan, what specifically are you referring to? >> he said mexicans were rapists and murderers. >> he said this yesterday in new mexico. >> he has said mexican immigrants to the united states were rapists and murderers. >> some were. he happens to be factually correct, some were. he did say yesterday referring to some of these protesters, barry, outside of -- outside of the event that they were thugs. >> yeah. >> that they are carrying the mexican flag and that some of them are criminals, and it sort of harkens back to some of those comments. i guess i would ask you now that he's pivoting towards the general is he really -- how is he making inroads with these
very important groups that the republican presidential candidate needs to attract, at least some support from? >> you know, it's not political discourse to throw rocks and bottles at police doing their duty. it's not political discourse to -- >> not everyone was. >> to rush and shoot out a door. that's thuggary and that's what happened yesterday. >> real quick to you, austan. >> i agree -- >> i've got to get this in. we only have a minute and i want to ask you about hillary clinton's e-mails. yes, in this report from the inspector general it says certainly that, you know, we know about some of the practices of some of the other secretaries of state and the campaign is saying she just did what they did. i know that's also debatable, but she's been trying to say i'm transparent on this and yet she through a lawyer declined to sit for an interview with the inspector general when other secretaries of state did. how does she argue that's transparents?
>> i'm an economist, i'm not a lawyer. i don't know much about the presidential records act law. it is my impression that previous secretaries of state had personal e-mail and that they didn't turn over their e-mails when they left office but that hillary clinton here in this case turned over tens of thousands of e-mails, but i -- i don't really know what the law is on those points. >> okay. it seemed like the report may have said she was the biggest offender, but we will leave it there. austan goolsbee, barry bennett, thanks to both of you. next, as donald trump gets ready to speak moments from now police in anaheim are sending a warning to protesters. i'll be speaking with that department live. plus, is the head of the democratic party too toxic? cnn reports some democratic senators are talking privately about how to get rid of debbie wasserman schultz. stay with us.

this independent inspector general's report that showed hillary clinton failed to follow protocol when it came to her e-mails there while she was secretary of state. we'll be watching bolt of these, and we'll bring it to you as news warrants. well, tonight, donald trump will headline his priciest fund-raiser this far. it's an event that's $25,000 a head. but, first, as we mentioned, he is speaking at a rally in anaheim, california, where police are bracing themselves for possible unrest. let's go now to cnn's paul vercammen outside of the anaheim convention center there. tell us what you're seeing there. we're seeing some protesters, but everything looks to be peaceful. >> reporter: it's peaceful so far, brianna. right now we have a shouting match that broke out between some trump supporters, and we also have some anti-trump protesters. we apologize if you see any expletives on signs. we will give you a ten-second flavor of what this sounds like.
>> you need to go back to mexico. you need to go back to mexico if you don't like america so much. don't let the door hit you on the way out. don't let the door hit you on the way out. >> that's just a little bit of a flavor of what's going on here, and we'll show you the police presence, brianna. it's really quite overwhelming. just off to my right, this is the anaheim police department, and you can see that they have their riot helmets handy. they have set up an extensive, extensive maze of barricades. not only the police tape, but there are these metal barriers all around the anaheim convention center. we have also seen an abundance of police on horseback. we have seen motorcycle officers, and if you look you can also see the plastic flexible handcuffs that they like to employ in an emergency if they need to make arrests, and the warning has come down from the police department. they said if there's any destruction of property, they
said if anybody is caught, you know, with a violent act or blocking traffic, they are not afraid to make arrests, but so far it's rather small here today and police and others are very happy that this is a daytime middle. day event, noon, because they feel that some of the protesters, demonstrators, feel confident that they can pull off more violent protests under the cover of darkness, brianna. >> still very concerned obviously about security. we'll continue to follow this with you, paul. thank you. let's go back live now to cnn's sara murray inside of the anaheim convention center. paul was outside. sara, we know that trump has been fund-raising on his west coast trip, but you actually have some news about republican donors and how they are getting along with trump. >> reporter: that's right, brianna. donald trump has just started to begin fund raising, and because he really didn't have a team of his own, the rnc, the party has really taken the lead on building the folks who will be building out the structure, building out who attends these
fund-raising events, and there's a small group of trump loyalists who are not entirely comfortable with this, do not belief that the party is 100% necessarily behind trump and if we come to october and donald trump is down seven points the party will help that money to help senate and house candidates and essentially to leave donald trump out to dry and the interesting thing about this right now trump and the party are supposed to be working hand in hand. they are all supposed to be coming together, but what this tells you is there's still a lingering sense of mistrust amongst some of donald trump's most loyal backers about working this closely with the republican party. >> sara, normally you have a candidate and donors have a lot of sway over the candidate, trying to make sure that donors feel comfortable with thing. are you getting any sense that these donors have sway over donald trump? >> reporter: well, i think any -- anyone can say something to donald trump and they feel like he listens, he takes their opinion, but ultimately this is a candidate that does what he
wants at the end of the day and scene that in how he was going to self-finance his campaign and switched positions and will now raise money in the general election. everyone knows he can go to him and whether he listens is an entirely different story. >> coming up is the head of the democratic national committee on thin ice? at the center of a political battle between hillary clinton and bernie sanders, is debbie wasserman schultz at risk of losing key support within her party or perhaps even her position at the dnc? >> yeah, i mean, obviously everyone is talking about how do we land this plane, and when will the plane land and how bumpy will the landing be?
there may only be quiet conversations happening in the halls of congress right now, but the repercussions could send shock waves through the democratic party. senators are discussing whether dnc chairwoman debbie wasserman schultz should be removed as the head of the party saying that she's become too toxic in the ongoing and growing divide within the democratic party. now, the dnc head is under fire specifically for comments that she made on cnn. she criticized bernie sanders' tepid response to chaos that was sparked by his supporters at the nevada dreamtic convention and even compared it to a donald trump campaign event. cnn senior political reporter manu raju is on the hill for us, and you actually just spoke with senator claire mccaskill. tell us what she said. it wasn't exactly a ringing
endorsement of debbie wasserman schultz. >> reporter: absolutely not. claire mccaskill is one of hillary clinton's earliest supporters on capitol hill and the senator recognizes that there is an issue here. bernie sanders' camp knows and believes that debbie wasserman schultz has not been fair. they believe that she's tilted the scales in hillary clinton camp's favor and claire mccaskill, like other senators, want to head into philadelphia with a united party. mccaskill would not california on debbie wasserman schultz to step aside, but she came pretty close, brianna. >> well, i think it will get worked out over time. the role of the dnc chair is always a supportive role, not a starring role, and i think because of what has occurred it's hard for her to avoid a starring role, and so i -- i hope it will all get worked out. i understand that fair or unfair
shy is seen by many in the sanders camp as a representative of a problem and, you know, that may not be completely fair to her, but it's a reality. >> reporter: now, brianna, i can tell you i asked her also about the discussions happening on capitol hill. she said democrats are trying to figure out how to land this plane right now and one of the ways to land the plane is to how to deal with the democratic national committee's chairperson. other democratic senators are not willing to throw debbie wasserman schultz a lifeline either. i talked to chuck schumer, the number three democrat and the presumive leader in the next congress and i said do you have confidence in debbie wasserman schultz as the chairwoman and he said no comment and that speaks volumes on their confidence in
debbie wasserman schultz. >> i know we're hearing from the clinton campaign that she, clinton, supports debbie wasserman schultz, but you would think that someone who is so tied to the campaign isn't exactly doing this in a vacuum, right? >> reporter: you would think that. she says she's acting as most senators do as an independent agent but clearly as we move forward, the hillary clinton camp is going to have to consider this going forward as they discuss with bernie sanders the way his role at the convention and try to alleviate the concerns from the sanders' camp. you have to think that this is on clinton campaign's mind because, after all, they are the ones at the end of the day that are going to make this decision. brianna? >> manu, thank you so much. a short time ago on cnn senator barbara boxer reacted to the calls for debbie wasserman schultz to step down saying she's heard nothing about it on the hill and the other senators who are talking anonymously need to show their faces. >> well, let me just tell you after years and years -- 40 years in elected life, if you
believe something, look in the camera and say it. don't do some anonymous don't quote me because you know what, that's wrong. if someone has a problem with deppby, chamter and verse what is it? >> cnn's senior washington correspondent jeff zeleny joins us. let's put this into what would happen if this goes down, some trying to push debbie wasserman schultz out there and senator boxer saying if you want this to happen there needs to be a groundswell for it. what woe this do to the democratic party and convention that's here very soon as they are trying to unify the party if debbie wasserman schultz were to go? >> brianna, first and foremost we did just hear that from manu raju right there. when chuck schumer says no comment, if the chairwoman of the democratic national committee would stay in her position, you've covered capitol hill for a being lo time, no
comment means that he is not supportive of her here so there are plenty of people who, you know, believe this, but to your point about going forward here. i've been talking to a lot of people. this is going to be sort of three people, three groups will make this decision, the clinton campaign, the sanders campaign and the obama white house, sort of three different leaders of this democratic party now, and there are some who say, look, we don't want a big leadership fight right now. the ultimate question is who could they all agree to, but, again and again when you talk to people, it comes up that if this is one way to get unity, if this is one way to get bernie sanders on board then this could be worth it and a possible exit strategy for the chairwoman of the party is that she has her own primary fight in florida. that primary is in august, so she, you know, could always say she's running -- she needs to focus her attention on that hard here. it's hard to imagine who they could find who could reach consensus here. if this is one way to unify the party, this could actually happen, brianna.
>> jeff, stand by for me for just a second. i do want to toss to some sound that we have of hillary clinton just moments ago taking on donald trump. >> he said profiting off working people losing their homes would be a, quote, good result. so a good result in donald trump's world is he gets his and you get hurt. so instead of dividing americans, we need to unite americans and one of the ways i'm going to do that is by promoting more infrastructure jobs because the state of our infrastructure is a national emergency. we have bridges that are right now too dangerous to drive on, although people take a deep breath and drive across them. we have roads that are so rutted
and pitted and potholed that people driving them are having to pay hundreds of dollars to repair the damage. we have airports that are stuck in the mid-20th century instead of the 21st century. we have water -- >> all right. let's go back to jeff zeleny there in california. you're hearing her make this argument, jeff, against donald trump, like she has been trying to turn what he is touting as his business acumen into casting him as a businessman predator type. is this something that you think has legs or that the campaign feels is really going to be effective for them? >> brianna, the campaign does feel this is going to be effective. we've seen this argument for the last 24 hours or so and seen democrats across the party echoing this so this is something that's a concerted effort from the clinton campaign, but all along hillary clinton has been trying to say she's a fighter for you. you may not like me as much as some other people, but i will fight for you.
they are trying to point out here that donald trump is in it for his own success, that he's not fighting for you. they are trying to go after some of the independent voters, voters in the middle, who are sort of settling into the idea, you know, donald trump could sort of disrupt the system and might be just fine. she's trying to get that back and really point out -- going right to the heart of his strengths here by saying, look, he was in it for himself and not fighting for you. brianna, the thing is there's so much audio and so many words and so many interviews that donald trump has given over the years, this is one piece of it about the housing situation in 2008, so this is going to be a sound track of donald trump's campaign. her campaign is going to be a sound track of his own words her, sort of throwing them back at him but the clinton campaign believes this is effective. of course, voters will make that ultimate judgment. >> i suspect there is a library of those comments that we will see doled out over the coming weeks or so. jeff zeleny, thank you. >> no doubt. next, moments from now, donald trump is expected to speak in anaheim, california. this is up day after violent
protests erupted outside of his rally in new mexico. we're live outside and inside. outside police are giving a warning to protesters there. plus trump ripping apart a republican governor on her home turf. this is a governor who is mention the as a possible running mate for trumpet was this a bad move on trump's part? everything your family touches sticks with them. make sure the germs they bring home don't stick around. use clorox disinfecting products. because no one kills germs better than clorox.
we don't want to think about it. but i had to. because, you see i was traveling, i was enjoying life, i was working... it was too long since my last pap. when i was finally tested, we thought i might have cervical cancer. after worrying - no cancer. i was lucky. women... please get a pap test to check for cervical cancer. and get the inside knowledge about gynecologic cancers. for you and the people who care about you.
according to local reports. on the agenda that night was a resolution denouncing the presumed republican nominee. ultimately city leaders took no action and before that trump supporters clashed with opponents in the crowd and on the council. >> this is just a statement saying to the residents of anaheim who have been on the receiving end of those attacks we don't agree with the rhetoric that's been used, and we've got your back. >> this is not the job of city government to get involved in politics. election, federal election politics. not the place inside city hall. >> well, how is the city now preparing for today? with me now to talk about this is anaheim police sergeant darren wyatt, also the city's public information officer. so, sergeant, we see some of the protests behind you. so far this has not erupted into any chaos that we see but what are you doing? what is the department doing, and you're looking off to the right, sir. what are you seeing? >> a lot of people are moving over to that direction. it just appears that there's
some secret service agents moving through the area. the police are there. nothing really to look at. just had to take a look and make sure we're okay here. you asked about the preparation, up staffed and called on mutual aid partners and have a large anaheim police presence as virtually every municipal police agency within orange county has sent us resourced to help with this event. we're hoping for a very peaceful event and are prepared should it go a different direction to take swift and decisive action. >> i'm sure when you were discussing this with your officers and how you're going to prep for an event like this where we've seen chaos elsewhere that you're talking about who the protesters are. do you think that these are local folks? do you worry that maybe people are coming in from out-of-the-area to maybe stir up some trouble? >> i think any time we have an event like this it's a mixture of both. there's a group of local people that will come in and protest and we've seen that they do come in from other areas and are
encouraged to come in by certain entities that want to see this go a different direction. kind of a mixture and not that big of an event and i think weave got maybe 15 protesters out here and we're well under control and we're prepared to deal with t. >> we've seen some video of the measures your department is taking. seen bigger barricades and some appear to be plastic, almost like a plastic rope in a way and then there's also the bicycle racks which are connected. they also have zip ties to use for handcuffs should they need to. what -- how are you prepared to handle this? you saw what happened last night in albuquerque? i'm sure that you looked at that and studied that. how are you prepared to deal with protesters if they do try to push their way in? >> well, i think that we have a much larger presence here than what was there last night from what i saw, and that's not knocking them. i think that we have prepared significantly for the event. we do have plenty of police personnel on scene.
we also have officers on horseback which is an excellent way to assist us in moving a crowd in a direction that we need them to move and block them from gaining access to certain areas. the airsia that are demarked and blocked off that's the secret service protected zone so that's not something that we've done, something that the secret service has done it but it has helped us to try to separate the attendees from the protesters so that we can try and avoid a conflict >> thank you so much, sergeant darren white, we do appreciate the update, and next a highly respected republican governor says she will not be bullied into supporting donald trump, so in her state trump takes her on. plus, who were the protesters who caused so much violence and chaos last night? i'll be speaking with someone on the ground there. looking for balance in your digestive system? try align probiotic. for a non-stop, sweet treat goodness, hold on to your tiara kind of day. live 24/7. with 24/7 digestive support. try align, the #1 ge recommended probiotic.
rocks that were thrown. there were even small fires at that event. trump is condemning that behavior but this time his tone is turning nastier. this is what he said, quote, the protesters in new mexico were thugs who were flying the mexican flag. the rally inside was big and beautiful and outside criminals. this comes at a time in his campaign where he needs to be wooing latino voters and some republican leaders, yet he had this to say about new mexico's governor. she is arguably the most powerful latina in the republican party. here's what he said. >> we have to get your governor to get going. she's got to do a better job, okay? your governor has got to do a better job. she's not doing the job. hey, maybe i'll run for governor of new mexico. i'll get this place going. >> joining me now is dan boyd, the capital bureau chief for "the albuquerque journal." dan, before we get to this relationship between the governor and donald trump, i
know you were at this rally last night. tell us what that was like. >> it was surreal almost being inside the convention center there and governor martinez was not there at the time but then having, you know, donald trump come to new mexico and take her on and insult the governor kind of on her own turf, so to speak, was a pretty interesting experience. >> it certainly was and, of course, we were watching that for sure. i do want to provide some context here because there's been a little bit back and forth before trump said this. the martinez camp is saying that the governor won't be bullied into supporting trump, but she's really been at odds with him over a lot of his immigration positions, his talk about building a wall. what's this dynamic between these two? >> yeah. i can mention this has been kind of an ongoing back and forth. she's been non-committal. hasn't said whether she will support him and is also the chairwoman of the republican governors association, a national group, that is working
to get republican governors elected this fall so she's kind of kept an arm's length from mr. trump, but i think it got a little more personal and maybe nasty last night. >> and this idea of her not going to the trump rally, she was asked, you know, and i should say it was rumored at one point that she might be on the vp list but she said no, that's not going to happen. she was asked why she's not going to the rally and she said, quote, she's really busy, and i hear that and it seems like the equivalent of someone being asked on a date and they say i can't go because i'm washing my hair. certainly this was felt as a snub an intended as a snub, right? >> that's right. we're all really business, and usually if a prumpive nominee would be in your state you would make an effort to be there. she wasn't traveling out of state yesterday and it was perceived as a snub and certainly donald trump responded in kind. >> i think a lot of people are looking at this and they see
suzanna martinez. she's a prominent female politician, a very prominent hispanic politician, two groups that donald trump needs to court in new mexico and states in the west and other states as well. how do you think this back and forth plays? does this affect his attempt at getting some support, if there is such a attempt, with some of these groups out west? >> i think certainly here in new mexico it could complicate thing. suzanna martinez is a republican but she's won here in a state that voted for barack obama twice and certainly instead of extending the olive branch, you know, mr. trump went out of his way to insult her so we're still kind of seeing how that plays out here, but i think we can put to rest that speculation, at least for now, the vice president talk. that seems pretty up likely at this point. >> definitely it does. thanks so much. really appreciate you joining us. dan boyd with "the albuquerque journal." >> thanks so much. well, moments from now
donald trump is taking the stage in anaheim. on the defensive is hillary clinton and democrats who hammer him hover his past remarks on the economy. plus, elizabeth warren hasn't even endorsed hillary clinton yet but she's suddenly becoming one of her most important i guess we could say surrogates at this point. how she is taking on donald trump. stay with me. you'll be surprised it doesn't crunch. hidden valley cucumber ranch. just one of our delicious ranch flavors. create your own seafood trios you can try something new with every bite. pick 3 of 9 all-new creations for $15.99. like baked lobster alfredo chimichurri shrimp and crab cakes bursting with crab meat. just hurry in before it ends.

top of the hour. i'm brianna keilar in today for brooke baldwin. at any minute donald trump will speak inside the an home convention center, and outside his supporters are facing off with anti-trump protesters. >> hey, hey, ho, ho, donald trump has got to go. >> got to do something. right here. >> this may be loud and intense as you can see here but so far it's not violent.
police though are on scene in full force knowing how trump's last rally went just hours ago. >> chaos there with anti-trump protesters in albuquerque, new mexico breaking through barricades. they lit fires and smashed doors and threw rocks outside this venue that trump was at last night. police responded with pepper spray. they did not, however, make any arrests. we do have now cnn's paul vercammen outside the convention center and first i want to get to sara murray inside the convention center who has been listening to the speaker who has been speaking ahead of donald trump. what's been happening there, sara? >> reporter: that's right, brianna. we've heard from a number of
people with relatives who had been killed by undocumented immigrants and this is a stable of donald trump when he visits areas near the borders and with heavily latina populations and lays into this as one of the campaign issues, that undocumented immigrants in the united states are dangerous, that they are a threat to the country, and i think that this is all part of his message or is going to be part of his messag s against democrats in the fall, that people feel less safe than they did before and we'll see how effective that is and that could run up hispanic turnout as democrats run against him in the fall. >> paul, you're outside. i want to ask you what you're seeing here. so curious especially after this day in new mexico and police have have really been anticipating for chaos, certainly preparing for it. >> they have, and if you look right over to my left, mounted police officers, mutual aid officers coming in throughout orange county sheriff's
deputies. you can see even the horses have face guards on just in case. they have taken every precaution imaginable, and they have said that anybody who decides to go ahead and break through a police barrier or become violent or destroy property will be arrested, and as you look at these officers, brianna, i know you know orange county well, just beyond, that's actually the outskirts of disneyland, in specific the california adventure, so they have really hit the streets of anaheim today with a lot of firepower, and we have not seen with this extreme police presence any of the violence that marked albuquerque last night. police saying they were very grateful for the fact that this is a noon event, middle. day and that they felt that anybody who is extremely rowdy wouldn't be using the cover of darkness to go ahead and perpetrate some violence, so so far so good and calm. i'll go ahead. jordan, go ahead and wheel over there.
there's been shouting messages for lack of a better term between anti-trump demonstrators and trump supporters. many of them are street preachers in southern california getting on megaphones shouting their various opinions and got to be careful here because some of the signs that we've seen have been filled with expletives. as we've said so far so good and calm here on the streets of anahe anaheim. brianna? >> sara, i want to switch gears and ask you about this fund raiser. know he has a bick dict everne topped which is a fun raising and a changing at the beginning of his candidacy. >> he has first one of his high-dollar fund raises and is expected to rates between 5 million and $6 million. this is an about face for donald trump who said he wasn't going to be beholden to big donors and now that's shifted in the job
election and we're hearing had a little bit of angst among trump loyalists who are working with the rnc to raise money because a lot of them still don't trust that the rnc has donald trump's best interest at heart, that this is the kind of fund-raising agreement that will work to donald trump's benefit and not just fill the koefrs at the rnc. the rnc disputes this saying they have built one of the best fund-raising teams in the history of fund-raising and this is what you'll need to take on hillary clinton in the general election, but it just says there are still some tough feelings between people who are close to donald trump and the republican party, even as all these folks need to work together going into the general election. >> cnn's sara murray and paul vercammen, thanks for covering the event inside apt out in anaheim. >> caller:. hillary clinton is getting tag team help against donald trump. senator and fellow democrat elizabeth warren slamming trump for comments a decade ago where he said he hoped the housing market crash would happen so that he could profit from it. here's warren.
>> donald trump was drooling over the idea of a housing meltdown because it meant he could buy up more property on the cheap. what kind of a man does that? i'll tell you exactly what kind of a man does that. it is a man who cares about no one but himself, a smalling -- a small, insecure money-grubber who doesn't care who gets hurt so long as he makes a profit off it. what -- what kind of a man does that? a man who will never be president of the united states. >> now trump firing back at wanchlt watch what he said. >> it's pocahontas ewinnlizabet
warren, she's going out and probably the senator that's probably doing just about the least in the united states senate. she's a total failure. she said she was an indian. she said because her cheek bones were high she was an indian, that she was native american and, you know, we have these surrogates, people like her, total fillures. >> with me now we have cnn political director david chalian and senior political reporter nia-malika henderson and chief political correspondent dana bash. dana, we're seeing certainly that donald trump is recycling this attack line from when elizabeth warren was running for the senate. it didn't really work for republicans then, and she has certainly been someone that a lot of democrats are mobilized by. is she becoming hillary clinton's secret weapon? >> certainly seems to be, right? she is and can say the things that -- that hillary clinton can't for lots of reasons, won't
or can't other just the kwakt that hillary clinton is rubbing for president, a completely different game and elizabeth warren is unleashed because she's not on any ticket and she also knows that she does have a following and not afraid to row them up and use her position do so. >> a lot of people out thereto are obviously very much an terrorism doing the ata grirl. at the same time, it's not bringing anyone to the side. this is the red meat for the anti-hillary and anti-elizabeth warren republicans who are supporting with donald trump. >> and he's struggling with women. they don't really like him as a group and he needs to -- maybe
he won't overtake that with hillary clinton but needs to cut himself in this. he finds himself in fouad with hillary clinton, elizabeth warren and how will that play in his community. >> it wouldn't do him any favors. on the one and he's going after political figures, hillary clinton and elizabeth warren in pretty nasty ways because this is what is that is hand in going after suzanna martinez, the first republican government, a keynote speaker at the republican national convention, a real rising star, someone who can explain republican party philosophy and conservative philosophy to different groups, latinos and women and there he is cutting her down in her own state. hillary clinton in a speech she just gave picked up on that and said, listen, donald trump has a
history of insulting women. he's even pick on -- on suzanna martes this, the governor of null mexico they're. people are sketching their heads as swen who would tenically be be a ally. also critical of mitt romney and semgs like he's not in any ways this were ole in the the deal with donald martinez. >> some people say his opponents have an attack line against him and nothing clearly sticks. the clinton campaign thinks they can attack him, not really as having business know how, but as kind of being a predator in some of his business practices. do democrats think they have really found what is going to stick to donald trump? >> they think they may have found one thing that may be effective for him, because as you know when you cover campaigns, nothing like a
negative frame that works well as the kind that also reinforces your positive frame so by going after trump and his past business practices where it may have hurt somebody in the middle class, hillary clinton gets todown double down 00 her message and show wants to talk about the case for her helping the middle class. donald trump embased there. some after me for my practices. i with a in business and not a colleague. that's whether what -- i want to remind everyone that i did what if takes to be snul and i want to do that for america so it really -- where both soids see the message or bunch. you. >> i want to ask you how trump
responded to these protesters in new motion saying in a tweet the protesters were thugs flying a mexican flag. the rally inside was big and beautiful and outside criminals. he's calling protesters thugs. we certainly know that there was people breaking barricades which the police were very upset about. he harkening back to criminals, kemg from mexico. not what you might expect of someone teddy to pivot to the mitt. >> pews iing the pact that they were wifg plks flags, take the opposition and wear it as a badge of honor and solidify support among his core boosters. he says great, i'm going to go somewhere and have all sorts of protesters outside and that's going to rally my troops and i think we heard that last night
hearing from trump supporters coming out of that event what they thought of the folks who were protesting. it's clearly not, you're right, brianna, a strategy of reaching out and expanding as much as it northifying your base, which, by the way, his bringing together the republican base right now is what clearly has him in the hunt with hillary clinton in a lot of polls while she continues to have a lingering democratic nomination race for the time being. >> stay with me for just a moment. breaking today, the state department finding that hillary clinton is at fault over the use of her personal e-mail server. how does him pact her campaign? plus, her opponent, bernie sanders, speaking live. will he take her on live over this, over the e-mails? we'll be liesning live for that. also getting breaking news. a major power outage in seattle. we're just getting in our first live pictures there. we'll have details next. ♪rock-a-bye stacy

well, seattle is experiencing right now a major power outage. we have live aerial shots for you over the city. the power company there says they experienced an equipment failure. we're still trying to get some details on that, but they are saying the power should be back in about 30 minutes. traffic is stalled there. we'll have updates for you as we get them. i want to take you now tore cathedral city in riverside county, california. you can see bernie sanders there at the podium speaking live. let's listen in. >> this is the truth. the truth is that no president, not bernie sanders or anybody else, can do it alone. we are now in the process of taking on wall street which has endless supplies of money, i mean, endless. we are taking on corporate america which if they want and what they have done, shut down factories all over this country and moved to china if they can
make $5 more in profit. we are taking on wealthy campaign contributors. do you think most candidates have meetings like this in cathedral city? they don't. they are busy going to some billionaire's mansion and getting $50,000 a person for the campaign. which reminds me, while i'm here. anybody got $50,000 to contribute? nah, i don't think so. i don't think so. but that's what the difference is between our campaign and the other campaigns. you want to hear something. it would be funny if it weren't so pathetic. donald trump tells us, who knows, he lies all the time, but he claims -- he claims to be a billionaire.
we'll take him for his word. he is soliciting funds from sheldon adelson, a multi-billionaire. so what you've got is a multi-billionaire supporting a billionaire. that is not what american democracy is supposed to be about. american democracy is one person, one vote. now, it is true that wall street has the money. corporate america has enormous power. the corporate media will tell you what they want you to know, not what the american people need to know, and we have wealthy campaign contributors directing what happens in congress. that is all true, but there is
another truth, and the other truth is that when millions of people stand up and fight back, we have the power and we can win. >> bernie sanders there in cathedral city, california, and as bernie sanders battles hillary clinton, the state department's independent watchdog, the inspector general, has released the findings of its critical report on clinton's e-mail server. the bottom line is that she broke the rules and that despite claims to the contrary they could find no evidence that clinton and her team ever sought legal permission to use the private server. this is coming as clinton took the stage in california. she was stumping with little help from actress jamie lee curtis, but she did not reference the e-mails. >> how do we make a decision about who is going to make those decisions is on our behalf when life hinges for this country? how do you make that decision? i want to make that decision based on someone's experience,
someone's strength, someone's intelligence, someone's attention to detail, someone's open, generous heart that has dedicated their lives to public service, who has worked on behalf of people, minorities, women, who has a woman's heart, a warm, deep, loving woman's heart, and it's about time this country that we had a woman running this country. so, i am going to play my woman's card. i'm going to play all of our women's card. we are playing with a full deck, and we are going to welcome hillary rodham clinton as the next president. united states! >> all right.
let's bring back our panel now with jeff zeleny joining us. he's our cnn senior washington correspondent, dana bash, senior political correspondent and nia-malika henderson. hillary clinton is not obviously going to mention e-mails at the rally, but do you think this is going to be a problem for her? does this really have to escalate far beyond this to affect her campaign? >> brianna, this issue has been out there for more than a year. most people who, you know, have already -- have a problem with this or do not have a problem with this have probably made their minds up but this is a scathing report from the inspector general. hillary clinton told you last summer in july i believe it was in that interview in iowa that she followed the rules, that she did everything permitted. this report is contradicting that in its entirety. they said she did not alert people or have permission to use this, so -- and the clinton is trying to say there's old news and nothing to see here.
that's not necessarily true here. this is a very direct report saying that in fact she did not have permission andy that did not follow the rules here. now, are democrats going to suddenly be worked up by this? perhaps not, but look for donald trump to seize this and run with it. now, bernie sanders hasn't, and we don't think he's going to. his advisers say he's not going to weigh in here. that may be one of the biggest mistakes he makes. his supporters believe he should have done this. he always said, look, i'm not going to go there. >> he so colorfully said basically enough with your, you know, the e-mails. >> damn. >> at the debate, so, you know, he took it really off the table there. dana, i want you all to weigh in on this a little bit, but dana, there is this war going on inside the democratic party. you have debbie wasserman schultz. she slams bernie sanders and really for what his supporters did in nevada. there was some chaos there and now you have some senators who are talking about removing her
from the dnc. are you seeing this as really a groundswell, like do you really think that debbie wasserman schultz could be on her way out? >> i wouldn't call it a groundswell, but i definitely based on my reporting, jeff's reporting and others here would call it a real conversation and it really does go to the heart -- i mean, there's lots of issues and lots of -- several sort of factions of democrats have different issues with her, but when it comes to the current moment in time it is all about bernie sanders and about the fact that he has been at war with her since the beginning of his candidacy. did not think that the party treated him fairly when it came to the scheduling of the debates, how many debates there were and many other issues. so, what we are certainly hearing, both from senators on capitol hill is -- and others is maybe some tepid support, but at
the same time there are those who are going out there saying, wait a minute, we're not going to just throw her under the bus to placate bernie sanders. you saw very important not just members of congress but female members, starting with the house democratic leader, nancy pelosi, the dean of the senate women, barbara mikulski saying we strongly support her, and i just got off the phone with a democratic national committee man who was talking about the fact that she has a lot of support inside the dnc. has there been talk about maybe her going to another -- another job? yes, of course, but that at the end of the day there is concern about two things, one, her being -- looking like she's sort of sacrificed on the altar of bernie sanders. that was the words of the source and, two, this is going to be another problem for hillary clinton because, as jeff can tell you, and you know this, both of you guys, that she is --
if she does become the nominee, it is going to be up to her to help decide who is the head of the dnc, so it's another issue that she's going to have to deal with. >> what would this look like, nia, and we're so close to the convention at this point in time, what would this look like if debbie wasserman schultz were to go? it's important to note, as dana does, that there are a lot of folks supporting her still, but what would that look like? how would that play out for party unity even if it's something that bernie sanders might want to see? it certainly doesn't paint a pretty picture of what might be going on in the party. %-pa and jeff have certainly done some of this reporting as well, the democrats i've talked to said the snare can aio would be if she does go it would be after the convention and typically when you install a nominee of a party, it is their choice to put someone in new. now, all along it's obviously been the thing that debbie wasserman schultz would stay there, but in some ways it has been sort of an open secret in washington that the white house
hasn't always looked on her tenure there positively, and even hillary clinton and people in her circle have oftentimes had problems with her tenure. so what i have heard is that it would happen after the convention, and in some kays it would -- it would probably be sort of a unifying thing of this is something that bernie sanders seems to want, has been pretty adamant about it and that even hillary clinton might want that after the convention they would install somebody new and sort be a symbol of party unity. i think to the average voter, you know, the average general election voter, stuff like this could sort of be in the weeds, but it would be a scenario that plays out in the summer before debbie wasserman schultz's primary. remember, she's up for election and she would have time to pivot towards that, but we'll see. again, here we are talking about the democrats and unity when all the -- all the thinking was that the republican primary and the republican convention could be a mess but the democrats obviously
have work to do of their own, particularly with this post, that debbie wasserman schultz has with the dnc. >> thanks to all of you for being on the panel. >> thank you. next, moments away from donald trump speaking live in anaheim, california. this is one day after violent protests erupted at his rally in new mexico. we will listen in live.

all right. donald trump on stage there in anaheim, california, where he has just brought a number of female supporters on stage to talk about their support for him. let's listen in. >> this is our representative group. thank you very much. chinese-americans, chinese-americans. that's good. hey, it's our leaders' fault, you know, it's not the chinese fault. they do take advantage of us, folks, but it's our leaders' faults because we have leaders that don't know what the hell they are doing, believe me. they don't know what they are doing. so it's been an amazing few weeks. last night we had the state of washington. we got a tremendous number, and now we have more votes than ever cast in the primaries in the history of the republican party.
that's big. that's big. and what we have is a movement. i mean, we have a movement. last night, you know, we were in new mexico and it was beautiful. actually, you wouldn't believe it to watch television, within that arena it was so -- it was like a lovefest. it was beautiful, packed, packed place, and outside they show some other things, but, you know, it's one of those things. a lot of flags. thank you. thank you. don't worry about it. don't worry. don't worry. that's all right. the police will get him out. hey, do we love our police? do we love our firemen? we love our police. we love our firemen. they do an amazing job. they don't get credit for the job they do. so, i began and we had 17 people running for what we're doing
right now today, and right now it's myself and it was supposed to be hillary watching us get to the convention, and then they say we may not even be able to finish in the july convention. we were going to need another convention in august. they didn't know what they were going to do, but it wasn't going to happen, and i said i think they are wrong. i think we're going to make it easily and, boy, did i turn out to be right. did i turn out to be right. and everybody said, the pundits, the geniuses back there, they all said that hillary,ation say crooked hillary, crooked hillary, she's as crooked as they come. she had a little bad news today, and you know, from some reports came down that weren't so good, but not so good, the inspector general's report, not good.
but i want to run against hillary. i just want to run against her. look. i don't know if you're going to be able to. it could be we're going to run against crazy bernie. that could be. could be crazy bernie. he's a crazy man, but that's okay. we like crazy people. and i hear they want to put biden in. i hear they are going to actually slip joe biden in, and he's going to take bernie's place. no, i hear they want to slip in -- because i will say the system is rigged against bernie, 100%. get him out of here. get him out. get him out. out, out, out, out! don't hurt him. see what i say?
don't hurt him. i say that for the television cameras. do not hurt him even though he's a bad person, folks. bad person. bad person. is there any place more fun to be than a trump rally? right? even one at like 12:30 in the afternoon. i love doing it. i actually love doing it. i love doing it because we are having an impact, they say, like has never happened before. you know, so many of the pundits, many of them cannot stand me. they said he'll never run, and then they said and if he runs, he won't do well, and he'll never put in his financials. i put in financials that are the biggest numbers they have ever seen by far. they were so unhappy. they were so unhappy, and then
they said he'll another sign for may, that's where you basically start your life away. and then it started. june 16 it started and we had a total of 17, boom, one out. two out. three, four, five. one after another, six, seven, eight. and then they said oh, we better start taking him serious because, you know, i was the one that knocked out the first eight. i did that single-handedly. they said we better start taking him seriously. they spent $100 million, 66,000 ads, i am not kidding you, i saw it on fox so it has to be true, 66,000 ads, and i said to my people, i was watching television in florida, and i said there's no way i can win. how can i possibly win?
every single ad is a negative ad, and most of them are false. there was a little truth to some of them, i'll be honest. but for the most part they were false, and i was being hit by everybody. i was being hit by the republicans. i was being hit by pocahontas. that's -- pocahontas. pocahontas, that's this elizabeth warren. i call her goofy. she is -- no, no, goofy. she gets less done than anybody in the united states senate. she gets nothing done, nothing pass the. she's got a big mouth, and that's about it, but they use her because hillary's trying to be very presidential. she's stopping with the shouting, okay? but then i listened before, and i'll be honest with you, i cannot listen to her. i cannot listen to her, can't listen. so i've been hit -- i've been

as donald trump speaks live in anaheim, and we are following that, one republican governor says she will not be bullied into supporting him. that is the latest from new mexico's republican governor suzanna martinez after donald trump claimed he could do a better job as that state's governor. here's what he said. >> we have to get your governor to get going. she's got to do a better job, okay? your governor has got to do a better job. she's not doing the job. hey, maybe i'll run for governor of new mexico. i'll get this place going. >> joining me now is john jay lavelle, a surrogate for the trump campaign and also the republican chairman for suffolk county in new york. john, we're listening to what donald trump has been saying about suzanna martinez.
he's gone after her and she's been certainly critical of some of his immigration positions but i wonder because he's the most powerful latina in the gop and he certainly needs to court hispanic voters. explain to me why he's doing this. >> well, you know, i'm the chairman of a county that's larger than ten states, and i can tell you i find it refreshing that we have a candidate for president that is willing to hold all elected officials accountable whether you're a republican or a democrat, a male or a female. i mean, it's true that they are having these problems in new mexico, and all he's saying is she has to do better. i have a great deal of respect for the governor, but we need to do better, and that is exactly why the candidacies of donald trump and bernie sanders have been surging because people are tired of their government not working for them, so donald trump's going to be a president for all people. i think it's very contrary to what's being painted about him.
he is going to hold everyone accountable, and -- and as a chairman of a party and as -- as a citizen, i find it to be quite refreshing. >> he's also, with should note, going after elizabeth warren today after she was really echoing hillary clinton's allegations that donald trump was advocating for the housing crisis. trump has rielly taken out everyone else who attacked him and warren isn't really running for everything so what's the strategy if she keeps hitting him? >> donald trump is a counterpuncher and what that means is he's going to punch back and he's being attacked. the democrats -- they love it. they love to play the race card, the woman card, they use it as a sword. they use it as a shield. you look at the housing crisis. it's no wonder elizabeth warren is supporting hillary clinton. bill clinton was the founding father of predatory lending in america. the community revitalization act of 199 the 4 caused that collapse, and then she went out and profited based on that collapse. you know, this is the reality of
what's going on. so, you know, he's being attacked, just like in the republican primary when he had every candidate attacking him. he is going to respond. he is not the kind of individual that's going to sit there and take it and certainly not take criticism from failed politicians. that's just not going to happen. >> he also sent out this tweet. it's being called offensive. he said, quote, the protesters in new mexico were thugs who were flying the mexican flag. the rally inside was big and beautiful, but outside criminals. he's talking about the mexican flag and then thugs and criminals in the same sentence. certainly there were some people who were breaking the law there at his rally, but is this really smart as he's trying to -- well, you would expect that he would be trying to kind of attract more hispanic support? is that really smart of him to do that. >> when i go to a donald trump rally, i see american flags raising. when i go to a hillary clinton
clinton rally i see people burning american flags and waving mexican flags. this is america. >> when did you see a flag burned at a >> first of all, she certainly advocates for people and they call it freedom of expression and freedom of rights. >> you say they were being burnt at a rally. >> i've watched cnn and fox. i've seen all of the networks show these protesters that are committing crimes. >> which one? >> you don't see the trump advocates committing crimes. >> i was going to say, i know of no hillary clinton rally where a flag has been burned. i'll put it out there. but please continue on with your point. >> well, i will just tell you, i want to see rallies, pro-american rallies, a president who will secure our borders. not only because i'm a republican but because i'm a father of three young boys and
he fear for the future of this country. donald trump is not a politician. he's a businessman, a successful businessman. he's a winner. he's going to respond when he's attacked. it's interesting that the democratic party attacking, attacking, attacking. they say you can't attack back because they are women. he's very respectful of women. in his company, he has promoted women. he's one of the best at it. his daughter is going to run his company he's not going to take attacks by failed politicians and just take it on the chin. that's not going to happen they have ruined america as we know it and our economy is stumbling. donald trump is going to restore
it. >> hillary clinton was talking about trump's wall which is a promise that he's made to his supporters. let's listen. >> donald trump wants to build a wall: a great, big wall, as he says. a huge wall. and he says he's going to make mexico pay for it. that is enough to build 16 golden gate bridges or 1500 new elementary schools. it is enough to send more than
300,000 veterans to college or install enough renewable energy to power 5 million homes. >> she's making this case, john, that donald trump's spending priorities are in the wrong place. what is your reaction to that? >> absolutely not. what he plans to do is to create better equity in our trade agreements and use that revenue to pay for the wall. and if miss clinton was so fixated on those things, why didn't it happen? why didn't she make it happen? she was a first lady, a u.s. senator, secretary of state. those things didn't happen, did they? so he will pay for it by erasing these inequities and like i said bringing jobs back to america. it's a fact that drugs are coming up through the mexican border. we have to be honest. one of the best things about donald trump, one of the things i liked the most about him is he that he speaks straight. he tells it like it is. that is uncommon in american politics in this day and age and that's why he has such
grassroots support from republicans, democrats, independen independents. we don't need to hear from a politician that has been there and has failed to deliver on the very things that she has failed to promise. the establishment has failed us and we need to move forward with someone who has the middle class or average american in mind and that's donald trump. >> john jay lavalle, thank you, a donald trump campaign surrogate. i want to go to a rally that is being covered by our maeve reston. >> reporter: just as you all were talking about the wall that he wants to build, he led the crowd in a chant here but went after elizabeth warren calling
her goofy, someone who is all talk and no action. it seems like both of them are relishing that opportunity to take one another on. >> all right. maeve, we're going to take a quick break. more from this donald trump rally happening right now live in anaheim, california, after a break. ♪ i don't want to lie down. i refuse to lie down. why suffer? stand up to chronic migraine... with botox®. botox® is the only treatment for chronic migraine shown to actually prevent headaches and migraines before they even start. botox® is for adults with chronic migraine, 15 or more headache days a month each lasting 4 hours or more. it's injected by a doctor once every 12 weeks. and is covered by most insurance. effects of botox® may spread hours to weeks after injection, causing serious symptoms. alert your doctor right away, as difficulty swallowing, speaking, breathing, eye problems, or muscle weakness can be signs of a life-threatening condition. side effects may include allergic reactions, neck and injection site pain, fatigue, and headache.

one of these politicians said the other day, i thought it was amazing, tell them we'll never leave them. you must say that we will never leave them. and i heard her make a speech, we will never leave you, japan. well, if you say that, why the hell would they pay up? i listen to this moron and i say -- >> thank you so much for joining me.

she did not cooperate and she clearly broke the rules. the independent for general for the state department putting blame on hillary clinton for her private e-mail server. but the big question, did anything she do break the law? >> senator elizabeth warren sure knows how to get underneath donald trump's skin. plus, falling apart. america's roads and bridges crumbling. a cnn special investigation as 30 million people take off in their cars this summer, how comfortable should you feel driving over that bridge? donald trump is speaking in a anaheim. on the left are protesters and onlookers from where he is speaking. if he says anything
