tv CNN Newsroom With Carol Costello CNN June 3, 2016 6:00am-8:01am PDT
calmly hey had to do that terrible outcome. oh, my god. >> his reaction. >> great for the little girl, but horrible to watch. >> most men and women deal with the best and worst of humanity on a regular basis. he had to do this, which is the worst thing anyone wants to do. >> and you can see his reaction. >> and he also gets to be with the little girl who never would have been there if it wasn't for him. >> thanks for joining us. have a great weekend. time for newsroom with pamela brown, in for carol costello. >> i actually covered that story three years ago. incredible to see that reunion. thanks so much. yeah, have a great weekend, guys. >> you, too. good morning to you. i'm pamela brown, in for carol costello. thank you for being here with us on this friday. we have some breaking news out of texas. a press conference to begin any moment now at ft. hood. this is what we know right now. five soldiers are dead after
their truck tipped over in the major flooding. four are still missing, and a massive search is under way. ed lavendera is at the press conference. ed. >> hi, pamela. we're waiting for an update from ft. hood officials where the search has resuzusumed here in area for four of those missing soldiers that were lost in a truck that overturned in floodwaters yesterday around midday. so we're approaching almost 24 hours since these soldiers have gone missing. but heavy rains in this area yesterday, pamela, as the truck that they were driving in, a large military-style truck, kind of like a flatbed truck, if you will, but a large truck, and able to transport a number of soldiers. 12 in all that were inside of that truck when it went into a low-lying area. the truck got stuck and then was overturned in the high rising and fast-moving floodwaters there. three of the 12 soldiers were
rescued alive. they are being treated at a hospital here at ft. hood. as you mentioned, five of the soldiers have been found dead, and four are still missing. now that the sun is up here in central texas, the search operations have resumed, and we're waiting for officials here at ft. hood to give us the latest briefing. the officials are just now starting to walk up to the scene here. just shortly, they'll begin the latest updates on the efforts to find the four missing soldiers. there have been a number of teams and rescue operations from around the area, not just officials here in ft. hood, but from the state of texas and equipment that is being used and teams used from the area. let's listen in now to commanders. >> good morning. welcome and thanks for being here today. i'm joined by colonel todd fox, the garrison commander for ft. hood, and chief coleman smith from the ft. hood fire
department. first, i would like to offer my heartfelt condolences to the leadership, soldiers, families, and friends of the calvary division on the loss of their five soldiers. specifically, our thoughts and prayers are with the soldiers' family and friends of the third battalion, 16th field artillery. as you're well aware, yesterday we suffered a tragic accident where we lost five of our soldiers. due to the quick action of some other soldiers that were training, we were able to rescue three soldiers who are in stable condition at carl r. darnell army medical center and will potentially be released later today. our priority has been since the first report of this incident and continues to be the search for our four missing teammates.
while that remains our priority, major general thompson, the commander of the first calvary division and major jackson, and the entire leadership team is focused on making sure we're providing the support and counseling for the families, friends, and soldiers as we work through the notification and grieving process. i'd also like to thank the many emergency services personnel. not only ft. hood emergency services, but the state and local community emergency services personnel who have so willingly come forward and have professionally been searching for our soldiers. i would also like to thank the community for their outpouring of support, their thoughts and prayers. they will be needed in the tough
days ahead. as you're all aware, this tragedy extends well beyond ft. hood. and the outpouring of support from around the country is sincerely appreciated. as i mentioned, while our priority remains on searching for our four missing soldiers, we also are providing support and counseling for the soldiers' families and friends affected by the tragedy. lieutenant general mcfarland and major smith, the commander and command sergeant major of ft. hood, both of who are deployed to baghdad, extend their condolences to major general thompson and the first calvary team. thank you for being here, thanks for your support, and thanks for your thoughts and prayers. >> do you have any information
on the search? >> the deputy commander there in ft. hood, texas, giving us an update on the latest situation there on the ground. we have learned that five soldiers died because their truck overturned in the floodwaters. three soldiers are rescued, and the search for four continues. i want to turn now to meteorologist chad myers standing by with the conditions the soldiers were facing when this all happened. chad. >> they were on east range road and owl creek. a rugged area on the north side of ft. hood. rugged is the key here because the rain was to the west of them, on top of what's called a hill country. hill country is from san antonio to georgetown to austin and on up a little farther to the north. so the rain fell uphill, to the west of them. into owl creek, which is normally fairly dry.
running all the way down across east range road. and as they tried to drive through it or around it or something happened at that intersection, at that crossing, the vehicles were swept by this water. and the rivers are swollen in texas. i can prove that to you here. this is the brazos river. we were up a little yesterday to richmond texas, and we're seeing water as high as they have ever seen it. some of the river observers who have been there for 50 years said the old record high number was 47. yesterday, they saw 53. now, what does that mean? it means it's six feet higher than they have ever seen in their life. pamela, this is not a boat ramp. this is a road that goes under the bridge here, i-69, on the way into houston. and cars should be coming up here and merging onto the highway. there's not a car that's going to be here for probably months until this water goes down. we were in the same similar
location yesterday. waters down about three inches. so how much -- how long is that going to take? well, if we're 30 feet above flood stage and only going down three inches, this is going to take a long time. it's dangerous, dirty, polluted because of all the things that have washed into the water and it's going to be dangerous for months to come. something else i have noticed today. the bugs are everywhere. once this water goes down, there will be stagnant water pooling around. the mosquitoes and bugs are going to be disastrous this summer if you don't take precautions. that's the next step. the step here is that the water is still saturating the ground. when it rains, and it will again today and tomorrow, the water runs off and rises back up again. it's one of those feedback effects. rain, up, up, down, up, down. it's going to happen for a month at least. >> my goodness. just so hard to believe, looking at your live shot, chad, that that was a busy road behind you. thank you so much for bringing
us the latest there. >> we're following disappointing news on the economy. 38,000 jobs added last month. that's the fewest jobs added in nearly six years and well below the already pessimistic forecast for the month of may. christine romans is following the story. how does the verizon strike factor into this? >> it factors in but doesn't account for all of the weakness. the trend, 38,000 net new jobs, the weakest in about six years. that was a surprise for many people who still expected more than 150,000 new jobs in the month. look at the unemployment rate, though. 4.7%, the unemployment rate. that's the lowest in years, since 2007. that's partly explained by a lot of people leaving the labor market, who just stopped looking for work. so that's of concern. let's look at the job growth overall. let's look at the trend. you can see april was also revised lower to just 123,000 jobs. you see those last four or five months, we're going to want to see if hiring starts to pick up
and the bars start moving in the other direction in the summertime. here is where you saw jobs gained and lost. health care, a steady performer. for years, lots of jobs in health care every month across the income spectrum. so health care, a steady performer there. information technology, down 34,000. entirely because of a verizon strike, 36,000 verizon workers striking for six weeks. we have seen it in past with a big strike like that, it depresses the numbers. it doesn't account for all of the weakness, certainly, and mining, you saw jobs lost in mining again. that is consistent with declines, quite frankly, in commodities market and the oil market in particular. let's talk about the unemployment rate. this is really interesting. on its surface, a beautiful number. 4.7%. look at the trend, the lowest unemployment rate since 2007. dig in and one of the reasons is because almost 500,000 people left the labor market, and some
economists say those are people who maybe were trying to find a job and didn't and stopped looking. another number on the report, the number of people working part-time but want to work full-time. that increased by about 450,000. another concerning sign about people not being able to find the job they want at the wages they want. the labor force participation rate, 62.6%. you hear this number all the time on the campaign trail. you hear people say, hey, the economy is not as healthy as it looks, when you have a labor force participation that has been declining like that. the trend overall has been steady job creation, 200,000-plus for months, for years now. the last few months, we'll have to watch and see if this can bounce back in the summertime. the trend seems to have turned. >> thank you so much. >> meantime, the war between hillary clinton and donald trump gets even bloodier. the pair trading their most savage taunts yet. jail time, distrust, even the specter of nuclear devastation
all part of their latest brawl. both seeming to go for the knockout, even though the election remains five months out of reach. we're here with some of their exchanges. phil? >> aggressive, very personal, and advisers on both sides, if you can even believe this, are saying it's only going to escalate from here. welcome to the general election. dt donald trump and hillary clin are at war. >> i watched hillary today. it was pathetic. it was so sad to watch. >> donald trump coming back swinging. >> lying, crooking hillary. >> after hillary clinton's scathing foreign policy speech eviscerating the presumptive republican nominee with her toughest lines yet. >> i will leave it to the psychiatrists to explain his affection for tyrants. >> trump calling for the former secretary of state to be imprisoned over the use of a private e-mail server. >> hillary clinton has to go to jail. okay, she has to go to jail. she's guilty as hell. >> the pair trading stinging
one-liners. >> he says he has foreign policy experience because he ran the miss universe pageant in russia. >> the tools donald trump brings to the table -- bragging, mocking, composing nasty tweets. >> to watch her is like sominex. sleep all night. it's hard to stay awake. >> over the issue of trust. >> it's not hard to imagine donald trump leading us into a war just because somebody got under his very thin skin. >> crooked hillary said, oh, donald trump. his finger on the button. she's the one who stupidly raising her hand to go into iraq and destabilize the entire middle east because that's what she did. >> and the question of temperament. >> donald trump's ideas aren't just different. they are dangerously incoherent. he is not just unprepared.
he's temperamentally unfit to hold an office that requires knowledge, stability, and immense responsibility. >> my temperament is so much tougher and so much better than her temperament. and by the way, we need a tough temperament. >> outside trump's rally in san jose. even more tense confrontations. mostly peaceful protesters, but some going fisticuffs with supporters. throwing eggs, water, and surrounding their cars as they exited. some anti-trump demonstrators waving the mexican flag, just hours earlier, trump claimed district judge gonzalo curiel has a, quote, absolute conflict presiding over the civil fraud lawsuits against trump university. in an interview with the "wall street journal," trump saying the judge's mexican heritage is an inherent conflict of interest because he's building a wall. >> the judge who happens to be,
we believe, mexican, which is great. >> curiel, an american citizen, was born in indiana, the son of mexican immigrants. >> the idea that a judge simply because of his heritage has to recuse himself has never been part of the american system. i don't see any explanation for this other than, i'm sorry to say, bigotry. >> and these attacks really underscoring some of the uneasiness that republican officials, even those who have endorsed and backed trump feel. trump could get a new addition to that list yesterday. paul ryan, the house speaker who had withheld his endorsement changed his mind yesterday and officially backed donald trump. his aides said there were no concessions, no negotiations or a deal, just that paul ryan over a series of phone call s has gotten more comfortable and is willing to support trump's candidacy. >> that coming as hillary clinton was giving her foreign policy speech. trump's attacks on the judge and
his mexican ancestry is the latest blow to his strained relationship with the mexican community. tensions are still high with susana martinez. she shunned his rally in albuquerque and he lit into her. >> since 2000, the number of people on food stamps in new mexico has tripled. we have to get your governor to get going. she's got to do a better job. hey, maybe i'll run for governor of new mexico. i'll get this place going. >> but in a stunning about face yesterday, trump told the santa fe new mexican, quote, i would like to have her support. i respect her. i have always liked her. martinez telling the same she's not ready to commit. >> he needs to address his plans for us. and new mexico people deserve to get that answer. he's not addressed it yet. i will tell you i'm not going to be voting for hillary clinton. i'm waiting to hear from him as to addressing the issues facing new mexico.
once i hear that, we'll see. >> the senate's top republican concedes to cnn that trump may be chasing away millions of voters that he will need in november. >> do you worry at all that your nominee now, donald trump, will do to latino voter what barry goldwater did to african-american voters? >> i do. i do. and i think that the attacks that he's routinely engaged in, for example, going after susana martinez, the republican governor of new mexico, the chairman of the republican governor's association, was a big mistake. >> so we have a lot to discuss. bob is edkitor and cheecief of hill, and jay newton small is from "time" magazine. bob, to you first. we heard mitch mcconnell speak. that was a pretty stern scolding, someone who says he does support donald trump, and it came on the same day that paul ryan formally backed trump.
both, though, seem to be sort of lukewarm. in your view, are there already cracked in the party's push to rally behind him? >> well, i think trump has done a good job over the last month in unifying as best he can the republican party, but there are cracks. i think that word is a good one to use, is lukewarm support from the speaker as well as the majority leader. remember, mitch mcconnell has a fragile majority in the senate, 24 republicans up, only 10 democrats. he's trying to preserve the majority. he has backed donald trump, but if donald trump is going to win, i think he's going to have to basically get susana martinez's support and woo latino voters. his unfavorable numbers are very high, and he's got to change that. he has to go into general election mode. he seems at times that he's still in the primary mode. i think that's a big problem for donald trump. if he doesn't fix it, he's not going to win this thing. >> why is that, jay? given how important hispanics are in the election, why do you
think he continues to make these offensive comments? repeatedly bashing judge kecuri for being biased, for being mexican, even though he was born in indiana. what kind of impact is this having on latino voters? >> judge curiel is not only someone who was born in indiana, but he was appointed by arnold schwarzenegger to the california bench, a republican governor. he was a justice department assistant u.s. attorney under george h.w. bush, a republican president. and yes, he was appointed to the federal bench by president obama, but he's a very moderate, very respected jurist. just to say on the basis of his ethnicity that he should not be doing his job, that says to every hispanic american who was born here, who spent generations here, essentially because donald trump wants to build a wall with mexico, even if you're just doing your job and going about your business, you clearly don't support donald trump and clearly
don't like him. so it really does potentially do an enormous amount of damage with latino voters. >> as he's bashing this judge, bob, he's starting to change his tune when he comes to susana martinez after bashing her a couple weeks ago. seems as though he's trying to make nice with her, as you pointed out earlier. we learned a party executive has resigned over apparent misgivings about trump. long-term, how much damage do you think he has done among hispanics and the republican party as a whole? or do you think that he could be forgiven if he changes his tune even more? >> well, i don't think he can change some of his policies, especially on building a wall. but i think that he can engage the latino community and there are indications he's going to be doing that over the next several weeks/months. there is damage, there is concern. if you look back to 2012, the republican national committee said it needed to do better among latinos.
mitt romney didn't really have a strategy in trying to get the hispanic vote after the primary. he went hard right on immigration, just like donald trump did, and it hurt him. basically, this week, pamela, it's been a good week for hillary clinton. she had a good speech, i thought, yesterday. talking about trump university and this judge and the criticism going back and forth. and overall, it's been a good week. however, and she's got to win, i think, california, otherwise that's going to be a bad week for her next week against bernie sanders. >> bernie sanders putting up a good fight in california. jay, quickly, last word to you. >> i think this is really going to terrify people like john mccain who is up for re-election in the senate in arizona. his race is narrowing and he needs at least some latino support in order to win arizona. this could really do damage to down ballot tickets with donald trump and the republicans. >> jay newton small, bob cue sa cuse ac, thank you so much. today on cnn, donald trump will sit down with jake tapper on the lead at 4:00 p.m. eastern, only
on cnn. >> paul ryan joins mitch mcconnell on the trump train, but both have voiced concerns about his rhetoric. trump's tough talk could give hillary an open with conservatives. for up to a year. the smarts ones leave the stupid ones stay and die. ortho home defense up to a year of clean living. don't be one of those people who kill their grass along with their weeds. use weed b gon. it kills only weeds not grass, which is precisely what you want. weed b gon and be forgotten.

house speaker paul ryan said he was, quote, not ready to back donald trump, but the wait is over. ryan now endorsing trump in an op-ed for his home paper. he writes in part, i feel confident he would help us turn this idea and agenda into laws to help improve people's lives. that's why i'll be voting for him this fall. ryan joining those republicans supporting trump. among them, mitch mcconnell. but he voiced concerns about trump's rhetoric. >> what he ought to be doing is trying to unify the party. i think attacking people once you have won is a time, if you can, to be gracious and try to
bring the party together. so i don't agree with everything trump says or does. but i do know that we now have a choice. a choice between two very unpopular candidates. very unpopular. >> here to discuss, kaley mcenanny, a trump supporter, and hillary rosen. thank you for coming on. cayli, i want to start with you, on the heels of what we heard from mitch mcconnell, does he have a point? will trump alienate the republicans he needs to win if he continues to take shots at others in the party. he's sort of acting more like a primary candidate. >> most of donald trump's criticisms have been reserved for hillary clinton. he did take a swipe at the new mexico governor, but i believe it was yesterday, he came out and said we would love to have her endorsement after she kiejd of insinuated there's a chance she comes onboard. i think trump, the vast majority of his comments are not targeted at republicans.
the party is coming together. i think that's the big point. >> we're going to talk about what he has said about hispanics in a moment. i want to go to you, hillary, to get your take, because paul ryan has endorsed trump, but he admits they have differences and ryan, quote, will continue to voice his mind if he needs to. can hillary clinton capitalize this and sway weary republicans to her side if she's the nominee? >> none of these guys can take comfort in what trump says because he insults them one day and the next day, changes his mind. but here's the important point, which is that mitch mcconnell and paul ryan are hoping for a republican president to advance a very radical conservative agenda. they want to defund planned parenthood, they want to take away women's access to health care, and they want to undo all of the progress we have made in our clean air and our clean
water regulations. i mean, they need a republican president to do that. and so of course they're going to get behind the republican nominee. they don't care who it is. it could be mickey mouse. they're just looking for a republican at the top of the ticket to pass their agenda. and that's what people are going to end up being concerned about, the supreme court, the issues, you know, that's what's at stake here, not donald trump's personality. >> and kayleigh, mitch mcconnell also said the comment about the judge presiding over trump university's lawsuit, about susana martinez could alienate latinos. 74% of latinos have an unfavorable view on trump. why does he continue to make these offensive comments towards latinos? >> here's the thing. republican leader mitch mcconnell does have a point on one of those things. i don't think the wall is
necessarily going to alienate latinos. i don't think that the criticism of the new mexican governor will. but i do think that the comments about the judge needs to stop, those are not helpful in winning over hispanics. we heard the jobs report. it's the worst since 2010. that's a positive point for trump to bring out and win minorities. he can win them, but it's going to mean stopping the comments about the judge. >> you know, we need to be realistic, though, about the comments about the judge. we're letting donald trump totally off the hook on one hand because he's mad at the judge because the judge is presiding over a case where donald trump has created fraud against, you know, thousands of people with trump university. his behavior has resulted in the business community and in the marketplace in hundreds of lawsuits against him for cheating colleagues, for fraud,
for ripping people off. and he doesn't like getting caught. he doesn't like being subject to the judicial system. that's why he's name calling the judge. if we don't like that kind of behavior, supporting one judge isn't going to do it. we really have to hold trump accountable for the underlying behavior that he's being held accountable for in court. >> i don't think it's wise for the clinton community to bring up this lawsuit because in fact bill clinton was a part of laureate university, which has many fraud accusations aimed at it. they happen to be abroad. the brazilian government has looked into it. >> this is trump university. >> this is loaureate university in which bill clinton was the chancellor and there were state department dealings with this university. yes, it is. he got $16.5 million from the university. far more than donald trump got from trump university. >> quite a window into the next five months.
can you believe we still have five months to go of this? thank you very much. and still ahead on this friday, hillary clinton goes straight for the jugular, but was her speech against trump a missed opportunity? i asked my dentist if an electric toothbrush was going to clean better than a manual. he said sure...but don't get just any one. get one inspired by dentists, with a round brush head. go pro with oral-b. oral-b's rounded brush head cups your teeth to break up plaque and rotates to sweep it away. and oral-b delivers a clinically proven superior clean versus sonicare diamondclean. my mouth feels super clean! oral-b. know you're getting a superior clean. i'm never going back to a manual brush.
praised today after a blistering speech against donald trump. in a scathing wave of attacks, clinton targeted trump's leadership, his temperament, and his knowledge about world events. >> he is temperamentally unfit. we cannot let him roll the dice with america. i don't understand donald's bizarre fascination with dictators and strong men who have no love for america. i will leave it to the psychiatrists to explain his affection for tyrants. making donald trump our commander in chief would be a historic mistake.
>> while clinton hammered trump's positions, did she miss a key opportunity to lay out her own in more detail? with me now, kirk, a senior military fellow at military families united. welcome to the show. we appreciate you coming on. this was dubbed a foreign policy speech, but to some, it seemed more like a fiery political speech aimed at donald trump. what was your take on the speech, and was there anything you wanted to hear that you didn't hear? >> pam, i think it was -- first, good morning and thank you for having me on. i think it was truly a missed opportunity by hillary clinton. if you're going to tout that you're going to give a foreign policy speech, then give a foreign policy speech and lay out your vision for how you're going to keep america safe. when i really looked at what happened yesterday and you listen to what she had to say, it was contrived political theater designed to create one liners for political ads for this fall. it did not lay out the vision that she really could have had
an opportunity to give the american people. >> but it's clear her strategy was to make donald trump look weak when it comes to the nation's security. and the safety of americans. do you think she was effective in that regard? >> i don't think she was effective. all she did is lay out a foreign policy speech that got totally lost in the background of the attacks she went after for donald trump. her advisers are telling her that she has to go after donald trump, that she needs to attack him on what many perceive to be her strong point, which is foreign policy, given her time at state department as the secretary of state. that's going to be debatable on what she did and didn't do. you can't just tout her positives without also considering the negatives which have yet to be brought up. she hasn't held a press conference to really discuss these visions and what she wants to do for america. so it was a missed opportunity. you know, when you view the world through the lens of national security like i do, i was really looking forward to hear some concrete details, and
they did not appear. >> just to look on the flipside, her supporters may say, look, she's been out there so much, secretary of state, she's continued to talk about her own foreign policy views, and you know, this was a real opportunity for her to go after trump. what do you think of that? i mean, what would you have liked to hear specifically that she hasn't already addressed up to this point? >> i think what i would like to have seen is an overarching strategy that would be concurrent with what your develop as president called the national security strategy for the united states. she could have delved into how she wants to address some of the major threats that are facing us. first and foremost, the $19 trillion of debt that is contraining us across the board in every instrument of national power. then lookats how she's going to deal with russia. it's not a military aggression in ukraine. it was an invasion. in south china, she says she goes toe to toe with them. what difference has it made? none. they'll still building and militarizing the south china
sea. north korea, continuing to build nuclear weapons and ballistic missile technology. iran, still on a pathway toward a bomb, although in compliance with an agreement. in ten years, they'll have a free and clear hand to do what they want. these are not being addressed. these are some of the threats that are facing us. these are the issues she should have discussed in a foreign policy speech that she did not because she was more interested in mudslinging in an attempt to bring down her main opponent rather than building up what she could have done for her version to keep the united states safe. >> all right, well, donald trump has had his own foreign policy speech as well. now we have both clinton and trump who have gone out there to supposedly lay out their foreign policy views. how does what she said and what you know about her foreign policy stack up to donald trump's? >> well, i think what both candidates in fact are missing is that they have not really laid out a vision in my mind's eye where they say what is the overarching strategy for how the united states is going to go
forward in the future and then put in some of the implementing details to tell the american people how they're going to do that. let's face it. we're constrained by a budget. you can have a strategy that says here's how we're going to defend america. what we cannot afford is an area called risk. we're not discussing what the risks are to the united states of america by having a $19 trillion debt where we can't pay in many ways for the military that we need. to have some of the diplomatic influence that we need worldwide. to have a robust economy that can not only compete but can pull other nations up to be with ours, to be able to be the van guard for freedom and for economic freedom around the world, which is not going to occur if we don't savl this debt problem. >> thank you so much, commander. i do appreciate it. >> thank you, pam. and still ahead on this friday, possible charges after a 3-year-old boy falls into a gorilla exhibit. the toddler's parents now waiting on word from the prosecutor's office.
well, charges could be announced as soon as monday for the parents of a young boy who fell into a gorilla closure last week. the cincinnati zoo plans to reopen the gorilla world exhibit, including new taller fencing. jessica is live with more on this. jessica. >> yeah, pamela, first things first. we just heard from the prosecutor. we thought we might hear something today about their decision on potential criminal charges. but they say they will wait until monday afternoon at a 1:00 press conference to announce whether or not they will charge the parents or family members of that little boy. while we wait, we're also getting new information about the zoo itself and the gorilla world exhibit. it will reopen on tuesday. when it does, new barriers will greet the visitors there. if you look at the side-by-side comparison, on the right, the rail that was in place on saturday, at the time of the incident, it was a simple metal
railing that was about three feet high, according to zoo officials. on the left, though, you can see the new design. zoo officials say it will be about 42 inches high. that's about six inches taller than before. and perhaps crucially, zoo officials say that it will have that knotted rope netting that they say no one will be able to get through. now, the zoo stresses that the previous barrier that was in place on saturday when this incident occurred, they say it had been accredited numerous times by the association of zoos and aquariums, and they also say that it had passed repeated checks also by the usda. they say it was secure, but of course, with the incident taking place on saturday, that little boy, 3 years old, somehow managing to slip underneath the barrier and get into the gorilla enclosure. the zoo officials said they had to act, and the new barrier will in fact be in place when the exhibit reopens on tuesday. pamela. >> all right, and we'll await the press conference for monday. jessica schneider, thank you for

good friday morning to you. i'm pamela brown in for carol costello. thank you so much for being here with us. five months before the presumed november showdown between donald trump and hillary clinton and the fighting turns nuclear. both presidential candidates launching their most savage attacks in a single day of scorched earth and burning accusations. >> he is not just unprepared, he is temperamentally unfit to hold an office that requires knowledge, stability, and immense responsibility. donald trump's ideas aren't just different, they are dangerously incoherent. >> my temperament is so much
tougher and so much better than her temperament, and by the way, we need a tough temperament. and all of these countries, and remember this, all of these countries that are our allies, she talks about our allies, our allies think we're very stupid people. >> cnn's reporter is here with some of their exchanges which seem to be getting more heated. phil? >> reporter: no question about it, pamela. on some level the last couple of weeks have been like the opening round of a heavy weight fight. both boxers throwing jabs, testing jabs. now we are in the real battle. hillary clinton's aides making very clear she had one explicit in her policy speech, delegitimize donald trump's candidacy. make it look like he is not fit for office. take a listen to what she had to say. >> donald trump's ideas aren't just different, they are
dangerously incoherent. they're not even really ideas, just a series of bizarre rants, personal feuds and outright lies. this is not someone who should ever have the nuclear codes because it's not hard to imagine donald trump leading us into a war just because somebody got under his very thin skin. >> reporter: now, pam, it's worth noting the clinton team is targeting two subsets. independents and republicans who vote on national security issues. this is the group the clinton campaign feels like they might be able to reach out and actually bring into the fold. as you would expect, donald trump responding rather harshly later that day in san jose. his rally last night questioning hillary clinton's really ability to do the job. take a listen. >> i watched hillary today.
it was pathetic. it was pathetic. it was so sad to watch and, you know, she's up there. supposed to be a foreign policy speech. it was a political speech. had nothing to do with foreign policy. and crooked hillary said, oh, donald trump, his finger on the button. i'm the one that didn't want to go into iraq, folks, and she's the one that stupidly raised her hand to go into iraq and detablelize the entire middle east, okay? because that's what she did. >> reporter: now, pam, what's interesting here is you're seeing both sides really try and define the opposition early. it was something that worked very well for barack obama's campaign in 2012. clearly each side trying to take a page from that playbook now. the expectation that it's only going to get nastier. pam, one of the things that everybody is paying attention to are donald trump's a repeated attacks on the judge overseeing the trump university lawsuit.
he was born in indiana. he's a u.s. citizen. trump has said repeatedly that he thinks the judge is conflicted. he said it again in a wall street journal interview that ran last night. because he's building the wall, the judge is conflicted. hillary clinton's campaign firing back this morning in a statement that literally just came out saying in trump's version of america this latino family isn't really american but they are american and hillary clinton will fight for all-americans. this is another issue, pam, where the clinton campaign feels like donald trump is way out over his skis. they will attack him repeatedly on this going forward. it's also an issue, pam, when you talk to republicans they're very uneasy about as well. >> we are going to discuss that. clearly the clinton camp sees an opening here. phil mattingly, thank you very much. trump's rhetoric regarding latinos is under scrutiny. the judge was born in indiana to mexican immigrant parents.
trump called him a hater earlier this week says the judge's heritage is, quote, an inherent conflict of interest. but at a california rally the presumptive gop nominee tauted his support among the key supporting block. >> latinos for trump, that's what i like. i love that. latinos, we're doing well with latinos. nobody knows about it yet. we're bringing so many jobs in. you watch what happens. the hispanics, we love the hispanics. >> so all of it as a recent poll shows trump with a significant deficit among latinos. 74% view him unfavorably. joining me alfonso aguilar. alfonso, thank you so much for coming on. i want to start with what we're hearing from hillary clinton this morning. she has just responded to trump's curiel's attack. she writes, the fact that donald
trump doesn't see them as americans makes him unfit to be president of this great nation, a nation of immigrants. do you agree with hillary clinton here? >> sadly, i have to agree with hillary clinton and trump's comments is a gift to the clinton campaign and, yes, it was silly for him to make reference to the judge's mexican ancestry. it's absolutely ridiculous. he's an american and just to try to describe him as mexican is ridiculous. it does offend a lot of people. it doesn't help him with latino voters. you already showed his unfavorability rating is very high. he's holding in the 20s. that's not really good in terms of latino voters. now having said that, latinos are still not flocking to hillary clinton. she's polling around 60, 62%, which if you compare it to obama's numbers four years ago he was polling at a much higher
level. so they're not very enthused with trump, but they're not very excited with hillary either. >> but are you concerned that comments like this will push some of those latinos towards hillary clinton, those republican latinos? >> no. i think that the majority of latino republicans like me at this point are not willing to vote for trump but we wouldn't be willing to -- we wouldn't vote for hillary clinton either. we would go do our patriotic duty and vote but leave that part of the ballot blank. i suspect a lot of latinos are actually going to do that. they know that hillary doesn't have a good record on immigration. i mean, she introduced an amendment along with then senator barack obama to kill immigration reform. two years ago she was calling for the immediate removal of minors coming from central america. it's a tough choice for latinos,
but let me say donald trump could do better and become more competitive with latino voters if he would change his tone on the hispanic community and on immigrants and if he were to change his proposals on immigration, specifically the one on massive deportation. if he were to open himself to some form of legalization, i think he could actually change those numbers, but so far he's not doing it. >> and you think that if he did that, that would make up for some of the more offensive comments he's made, saying that mexican immigrants are rapists, killers, talking about this judge, talking about the suzanna martinez, you think that could make up for that? >> well, it wouldn't make up for it completely, but it would allow him to become more competitive with latino voters getting through these numbers a little bit. if he goes from 23% as that poll showed to, say, 30, 31% for
trump considering he's getting so much support from white voters, that could make a difference. >> let's talk about suzanna martinez, because speaking about tone, he has changed his tone when it comes to the very popular governor of new mexico. he had taken aim at her a few weeks ago saying she's not doing a good job. let's listen to what he is now saying about her. >> since 2000 the number of people on food stamps in new mexico has tripled. we have to get your governor going. she has to do a better job, okay? hey, maybe i'll run for governor of new mexico. >> that was my bad. so clearly that was what he said a few weeks ago, but now he is saying that he respects her, that he hopes to have her, you know, endorsement. he says, i have always liked her. how does that square and is that enough? do you think that this about face can work? >> yeah, that's typical trump. last week he was criticizing
her, attacking her severely and then this week he's saying he's always liked her. but, look, i don't think her -- his attack on suzanna martinez was because she's hispanic. he attacked her because she hasn't endorsed him. she didn't attend that rally in mexico so he was angry. i think the attack was silly. i don't think he gained anything with it, but having said that, you know, because he's made other comments about mexican immigrants and people of hispanic origin, when something like this happens, when he goes after a governor who's a woman and hispanic, then people start saying, oh, well, he's doing it because, you know, he has something against his -- the hispanic community. that's the sad part. look, it doesn't help. he needs to change his tone and he needs to do it right away. there's still time. there's a window of opportunity. again, a lot of people are not going to forget about what he said in the past. there are some people that are not going to vote for him.
they may not vote for hillary, but they're just not going to vote for him. i think there's still an opportunity to get support from a good number of latino republicans and a lot of latino independents, but he needs to start making those adjustments now. if he continues making comments like the comments he's made about judge curiel, i don't think that's really going to help him. >> alfonso aguilar, thank you very much. >> thank you for having me. today on cnn, donald trump, by the way, will sit down with jake tapper on "the lead" at 4:00 eastern only on cnn. we turn to breaking news out of texas. five fort hood soldiers are dead and several others missing after a military truck tips over in the major flooding there. a massive search is underway and officials have spoken out there. >> our priority has been since the first report of this incident and continues to be the search for our four missing
teammates. >> cnn's ed lavandera was at that press conference and joins us live from that press conference. what did we learn there, ed? >> reporter: pamela, as you mentioned, that search is back underway this morning now that light has popped up over fort hood. it is a massive search involving not only units from inside the fort hood military posts but state and county resources are being used to find these still four missing soldiers. the commanders here at fort hood say this is an urgent priority. >> yesterday we suffered a tragic accident where we lost five of our soldiers. due to the quick action of some other soldiers that were training, we were able to rescue three soldiers who are in stable condition. this tragedy extends well beyond fort hood, and the outpouring of support from around the country is sincerely appreciated.
>> reporter: now, pamela, 12 of these soldiers were riding in the personnel carrier. the truck was going through a low lying road, got stuck, and then the high rising and fast-moving waters apparently knocked the truck over and that's why those soldiers fell out into the flood waters. as you mentioned, the truck behind them, people from that truck were able to save and rescue three of the soldiers that were in the water, but the search continues for four of them. officials here at fort hood say that they were in the process of closing down this road. so a lot of questions as to exactly why these trucks were in that particular area. officials hearsay they are investigating all of that, but right now the priority is finding those four soldiers right now. >> yeah, our thoughts and prayers are with those families as this is going on. still to come, clinton, trump, the escalation of their bitter fight for the white
perfect driving record. >>perfect. no tickets. no accidents... >>that is until one of you clips a food truck, ruining your perfect record. >>yup... now, you would think your insurance company would cut you some slack, right? >>no. your insurance rates go through the roof. your perfect record doesn't get you anything. >>anything. perfect! for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise your rates due to your first accident. and if you do have an accident, our claim centers are available to assist you 24/7. for a free quote, call liberty mutual at switch to liberty mutual and you could save up to $509 call today at
accusations and sizzling one liners. their goal clearly make the other candidate appear unelectable. >> so the stakes in global stake craft are infinitely higher and more complex than in the world of luxury hotels. we all know the tools donald trump brings to the table, bragging, mocking, composing nasty tweets. i'm willing to bet he's writing a few right now. >> and sure enough he did fire off some tweets during her speech. we're going to hear donald trump firing back in just a moment. first, let's bring in our guest, larry sabato and jason johnson, the political editor from the roof.com. great to see you, gentlemen. larry, i want to start with you. we know, we have seen that trump loves to trade punches. hillary clinton clearly is now doing the same.
do you think though she made a mistake by punching him in the nose five months before the election or was this a smart move to not wait until perhaps it's too late? >> no, she's just warming up. believe me, this is going to be, you know, a 20 round prize fight. it's never going to stop. it's only going to intensify. you used earlier the phrase scorched earth, and i think that's exactly correct. this is going to be a scorched earth campaign, not unlike 1964. >> well, we're going to talk about 1964 and that famous ad. 1964 daisy ad to reflect president johnson. let's watch that and then i'm going to talk to you on the other end. >> 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0.
these are the stakes, to make a world in which -- >> all right. so, larry, clinton yesterday invoked this visual of trump and his finger on the nuclear button. you think she stole a page out of lbj's playbook, right? >> well, in politics they call it borrowing, pam, they don't call it stealing. >> okay. borrowing, fair. fair enough. >> these ideas -- these ideas have been around forever as my good friend jason knows. he's written a book on political consultants. but, look, i think you're going to see a fair number of copying of ads from 1964. another one that i bet you will see is a simple one. it's just photos of the oval office and the narrator says, in this room decisions are made and signatures are put on pieces of paper that change people's lives or end life altogether. sometimes a quiet message works
better than a loud nuclear bomb. >> and, jason, let's listen to trump tearing into clinton and the foreign policy speech that she promised yesterday. >> after what she said about me today in her phony speech, that was a phony speech, that was a donald trump -- i will say this, hillary clinton has to go to jail, okay? she has to go to jail. has to go. that was a phony hit job. she's guilty as hell. >> relating to the fbi investigation there. when you hear trump's response, jason, does it seem to you like she got under trump's skin with this speech? >> like lotion gets under trump's skin. this guy is incredibly thin skinned. what are we seeing this week? we had a reporter saying, hey, where did that million dollars to the veterans go? and he attacks them. you have a judge from indiana and he attacks them. you have hillary clinton just for the audacity to be running for president and he's going to
attack. this is what trump does but this is why hillary clinton's speech was so effective. she constantly pointed out, this guy doesn't have answers. he's a paper tiger. i can attack him and he doesn't have the temperament. i think this is a good move by hillary clinton so far. i think she has to continue with it, maybe put a bit more passion into it. we'll see how trump handles it. >> so you think it was effective, but on the other side of this, larry, she could be opening herself up to more criticism for what her critics view as her own foreign policy stumbles when it comes to libya, when it comes to iraq. do you think it was a smart move for her to dub this as a foreign policy speech? >> well, you're certainly correct. it turned out to be less foreign policy and more trump attacks than i think anybody expected. >> that's for sure. >> but, you know, her calculation is very simple. i think she's finally adjusted to the reality that running against donald trump means throwing the rule book away. and, you know, her rule book of
having very sweet nice sunday afternoon picnic debates, that's never going to happen with someone like donald trump. she has to be just as tough. pam, she can't do it just once. if you look back at her history, often she'll do something like this once, she did a good job of it, but then she says, well, that's done, and she checks it off the list. no, it can't be checked off the list. by october if she's done her job and trump's done his, we're going to run out of synonyms for nasty. >> another reminder, this is a marathon, not a sprint. still have five months to go. larry sabato, jason johnson, thank you very much. fighting over evidence. a new york police brutality investigation. what sources are telling cnn about the holdup in the eric garner case. we can't contain it any long...

sign up for outage alerts at pge.com/outagealerts. together, we're building a better california. federal prosecutors and investigators are fighting over evidence in the eric garner case battling over whether or not it's strong enough to bring charges over excessive force. garner died in 2014 after he was placed in what witnesses describe as a chokehold by a new york city police officer. he was illegally selling loose cigarettes on a staten island street. evan perez broke this story. evan, what have you learned? >> reporter: pamela, the question in this case has been on whether the officer seen in that video just now, whether he used what is a banned chokehold,
banned by the new york police department, whether he used a chokehold as part of this arrest. if you look at that video, a lot of people were very, very convinced that that is what happened. if you slow down the video a bit, it's not so clear. that's part of what is going on behind the scenes at the justice department and the fbi. the question of whether or not there's enough evidence, sufficient evidence to sustain charges against this officer. we know he's already been cleared by a state grand jury in new york in staten island and the question for the justice department has been whether or not there's enough evidence to bring civil rights charges against him. we're told that there's a disagreement between headquarters here in washington, the justice department, and prosecutors in new york, in brooklyn, where this case would be brought and also with the fbi. officers there, investigators there do not believe that there's enough evidence. doj officials do believe there is. now we have a bit of a standoff. we don't know where this will end. the justice department says that there's no final decision that's been made. it is still a case under
investigation. we also heard from pantaleo's attorney and he says his client did not violate garner's civil rights. >> evan perez, thank you so much. good morning, i'm pamela brown in for carol costello. thank you for being here with us on this friday morning. great to have you along. hillary clinton turns up the heat against trump and unleashes a barrage of biting attacks against the presumptive republican nominee making her case that trump is not only dangerous but unfit to lead. clinton proved the two rivals have very different positions and styles when it comes to tackling the same issues. cnn's chief national security correspondent jim sciutto has more. >> reporter: hillary clinton highlighting her vast diplomatic experience while painting donald trump as unfit, incapable, and dangerous. >> it's not hard to imagine
donald trump leading us into a war just because somebody got under his very thin skin. >> reporter: her argument that leadership requires consistency and prudence in contrast to donald trump's brash stance. >> we must as a nation be more unpredictable. >> reporter: secretary clinton pointing out the stark differences between the two on virtually every facet of u.s. foreign and national security policy. >> this is someone who has threatened to abandon our allies in nato, the countries that work with us to root outer or lists abroad before they strike us at home. >> nato is obsolete. it was 67 years or over 60 years old. >> his proposal to ban 1.5 billion muslims from even coming to our country doesn't just violate the religious freedom our country was founded on, it's a huge propaganda victory for
isis. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on. >> it's no small thing when he suggests that america should withdraw our military support for japan, encourage them to get nuclear weapons, and he said this -- >> so north korea has nukes. japan has a problem with that. they have a big problem with that. maybe they would, in fact, be better off if they defend themselves from north korea. >> with nukes? >> including with nukes. >> i wonder if he even realizes he's talking about nuclear war. >> i know more about isis than the generals do, believe me. >> he says he doesn't have to listen to our generals or admirals, our ambassadors and other high officials because he has, quote, a very good brain.
>> and hillary clinton also said that she, unlike mr. trump, still has the utmost confidence in america. of course, secretary clinton played up her own record as secretary of state as far more substantive than mr. trump and trump hit back calling clinton's speech, quote, pathetic. our thanks to jim sciutto for that report. now we want to check our top stories on this friday. at least 30 people are dead including ten civilians on a bus after regime airstrikes ripped through the war torn city of aleppo in syria. an afp reporter in the city says today's raids are the most intense in more than a week and include barrel bombs and unguided explosives. iraq's military says dozens of isis militants are dead after a wave of coalition airstrikes. the mission targeted command centers and tunnel networks in southern fallujah. militants were gathered for a meeting when the strikes took place. it's unclear whether a newly
appointed leader believed to be at the meeting was killed. french president francoise hollande has declared a state of emergency. thousands of people have been evacuated. the museums announced they will be closed to the public today. and still ahead on this friday, we have some new details of the death of prince. the singer died in an accidental overdose. now investigators want to know where he got the drugs. what's it like to be in good hands? like finding new ways to be taken care of. home, car, life insurance obviously, ohhh... but with added touches you can't get everywhere else, like claim free rewards... or safe driving bonus checks. even a claim satisfaction guaranteeeeeeeeeee! in means protection plus unique extras only from an expert allstate agent.

because of an accidental overdose of the powerful painkiller fentanyl. now investigators are racing to find out where he got the drugs. sara sidner joins us live from right outside of minneapolis, the site of prince's estate. what have you learned, sara? >> reporter: pamela, in looking at the medical examiner's report, it's a very short report. it's just a page, but it gives some details that everybody has been waiting for saying that prince died of fentanyl toxicity, that it was self-administered by prince. there are a lot of unanswered questions. while this is considered an accident, there is still a death investigation going on. we know the drug enforcement administration has been looking into this case, that the sheriff's department here has been investigating this case in conjunction with the dea and that gives some indication that there is a thought that there may be illegally obtained drugs. we know from investigators, our sources telling us that there were pills that were found on
prince and there were some medications that were found inside his home as well, and what we don't know just yet is whether or not he had a valid prescription for fentanyl. if he did not, investigators will certainly be looking at exactly where he may have been able to obtain that. they have been talking to the doctors who have been treating prince, they have been talking to prince's inner circle and those around who are working with prince. we know that's been going on since the day that he died. there are so many unanswered questions, but certainly they're still in the middle of the throws of the investigation here because this is just one piece of the puzzle that we now know that prince died of fentanyl toxicity. >> sara, the dea says this drug, fentanyl, is being used more and more. what can you tell us about the drug? >> reporter: you know, it just so happened that a couple of weeks before we got this information on prince we did a whole deep dive look at what is happening with fentanyl in this
country, and it has been called the next epidemic. we've talked about heroin being an epidemic. this drug is so potent, it is the most potent painkiller on the market and it is opioid based so it can be highly addictive, but it only takes about three or four grains of sand of this particular drug can kill you and that is extremely important for people to know because it is now being sold on the street and has taken countless lives across this country. the dea has actually put out, pamela, an alert saying this is a health and safety hazard on a national scale and they're trying to fight it. it has been coming in from china and from mexico illegally, and there is, of course, those that have the prescriptions that have been giving it out. it usually comes in a patch form or a lollipop. it is used by cancer patients for extreme pain, pamela. >> currently being abused across the country. sara sidner, thank you very much. keep us posted on the investigation there involving

what's recommended for me. x1 makes it easy to find what you love. call or go online and switch to x1. only with xfinity. in just two months national anthems from around the world will ring through the streets of rye ee. a sharp contrast from what's being heard now. bullets rapidly firing as gangs and police clash. intense crime gripping the city as the 2016 games near. but as cnn's ivan watson
discovered, for many sheer survival is more important than any gold medal. >> reporter: gun battles in the olympic city. a clash between police and gangs in one of rio de janeiro's impoverished cabella's with civilians caught in the middle. urban warfare in densely populated communities where parents struggle to keep their children safe. this woman says two bullets flew into a children's recreation center. with armored personnel carriers and police special forces move in, they trigger more gunfire. it's not exactly what you'd expect in the host city of the upcoming summer olympics. >> translator: today we live in the middle of a cross fire, caught in a war that is not our own. >> reporter: louisa cabral is a
community activist. she says the war between the police and the gangs is getting worse. she argues that the upcoming olympics won't make any impact on the violence here. the authorities in rio insist they have a plan for keeping the games safe by deploying some 85,000 police and soldiers across the city. but these days even members of olympic teams are getting caught up in the violence. >> i went to the gas station, was just meters away and the gun fight started. so all of a sudden everybody started running at the gas station and hiding behind things so i thought, well, it might be time to just lay flat in the motorboat and hide as well. >> reporter: part of the problem is that there are effectively two systems of law and order in rio. police keep control in the affluent tourist stick parts of the city, but up in the much poorer hilltops there's a very different group in charge. this young drug trafficker is
trying to illustrate the complete different set of rules that exists up in the cabellas. brazilians call this the parallel state. they're communities where the gang control the area and where the police rarely go in without weapons. you don't want the olympics? >> translator: it's not that i don't want it, but i don't see any advantage to corrupt olympics. there's no investment. the rich people just use the olympics to steal from the brazilian people. >> reporter: a drug dealer's skeptical view. and perhaps it's understandable. given the frightening conditions many residents face in this troubled city, sheer survival more important than bronze, silver and gold. ivan watson, cnn, rio de janeiro. >> our thanks to ivan for that
