tv   Erin Burnett Out Front  CNN  June 22, 2016 4:00pm-5:01pm PDT

4:00 pm
good report. thank you very much. remember, you can always follow us here in squgs "the situation room on twitter." be sure to go there. follow me at wolf blitzer. thanks for watching. erin burnett "outfront" starts right now. >> "outfront" next, donald trump calling hillary clinton a world-class liar the most corrupt candidate ever. hillary clinton firing back tonight. and donald trump calls himself the king of debt. is that a good thing? and breaking news. democrats staging a sit-in on the house floor, demanding action on gun control. will it finally work? let's go "outfront." good evening, i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, the war of words. donald trump and hillary clinton hammering each other, getting personal. trump today relentlessly attacking hillary clinton. >> she's a world-class liar.
4:01 pm
hillary clinton may be the most corrupt person ever to seek the presidency of the united states. hillary clinton has perfected the politics of personal profit and even theft. she ran the state department like her own personal hedge fund. her decisions spread death, destruction and terrorism everywhere she touched. her campaign slogan is "i'm with her." you know what my response is to that? i'm with you, the american people. >> clinton firing back, attacking trump's core issue, his plan for the economy, and she mocked his personal bankruptcies. >> the self-proclaimed king of debt. has no real ideas for making college more affordable or addressing the student debt crisis.
4:02 pm
he has no credible plan for rebuilding our infrastructure, apart from his wall. he has no real strategy for creating jobs, just a string of empty promises. and maybe we shouldn't expect better from someone whose most famous words are "you're fired!" >> despite the tough talk, trump abandoned his more controversial tug talking points. he reached out to peaceful muslims who only want to raise their kids in peace and safety. is this the retooled trump that republicans and big money donors want to see? phil mattingly begins our coverage "outfront." you have been talking to officials since the speech. is this what they have been waiting for and is this going to turn the tide? >> it was a lot more good than bad or maybe as paul ryan told wolf blitzer just a little bit ago, the speaker of the house saying this is the kind of speech you want your candidate
4:03 pm
to be making. and that's just the issue, erin. for weeks, republicans from those who are ardent trump supporters, to those firmly in the never trump camp, have just wanted donald trump to get out of his own way. allow the party to attack hillary clinton. well today teleprompters and all, that's exactly what donald trump did. >> hillary clinton may be the most corrupt person ever to seek the presidency. >> reporter: today, a disciplined donald trump staying on script and is haurclaunching multifront attack on hillary clinton. >> the other candidate in this race has spent her entire life making money for special interests and she's been taking plenty of money out for herself. >> reporter: the presumptive gop nominee unleashing a scathing critique less than a day after clinton's second major speech, painting trump as unstable. >> just like he shouldn't have his finger on the button, he shouldn't have his hands on our
4:04 pm
economy. >> reporter: trump's speech comes as he has faced weeks of negative headlines, poor poll numbers, anemic fund-raising and internal campaign turmoil. today trump trying to turn the page and focus entirely on his general election opponent. >> her campaign slogan is "i'm with her." you know what my response is to that? i'm with you, the american people. >> reporter: trump trying to right his campaign, attacking clinton as a private citizen and her record as secretary of state. >> hillary clinton's tryout for the presidency has produced one deadly foreign policy disaster after another. >> reporter: trump also raising more conspiratorial charges by clinton during the 2012 terrorist attack on the mission in benghazi. >> among the victims of our late ambassador, chris stevens. what she did with him was absolutely horrible.
4:05 pm
he was left helpless to die, as hillary clinton soundly slept in her bed. that's right. when the phone rang, as per the commercial, at 3:00 in the morning, hillary clinton was sleeping. >> reporter: claims debunked by democratic and republican congressional investigations. some of trump's attacks more on point, including his criticism of clinton for saying in 2008 that as first lady she landed in bosnia under sniper fire. she said she was under attack and the attack touched out to be young girls handing her flowers. brian williams' career was destroyed for saying less. >> reporter: trump, often criticized for his campaign's lack of specifics outlined eight priorities for the first hundred days in office. including judicial appointments, changes to immigration laws, a repeal of obamacare, and, quote, massive tax reform. >> there is one common theme in all of these reforms.
4:06 pm
it's going to be america first. >> reporter: erin, donald trump on message today. but also flexing some muscle on the fund-raising side of things. one of his top aides telling me that over the course of the last 24 hours, trump has raised more than $3 million on just his first online fund-raising e-mail. we have been talking all week about how bad his fund raising numbers were in the last month. that in showing his ability to raise. with all of this remains the same. how long will it last? >> phil mattingly, thank you very much. now david gergen, adviser to four presidents. bassos michael and executive editor of politics. disciplined speech, a scripted speech. a teleprompter speech. some things in it you heard phil mattingly reporting, true. the bosnia claim, for example. others, though, not true. debunked. things like the benghazi claim. why not keep it clean? why put in things that have been debunked. >> i think the issue is that
4:07 pm
it's false. he's metaphorically saying she was sleeping. she should have been there. multiple requests for security that were not delivered. those are facts. we can say the same about hillary clinton, who has categorically called donald trump a fraud and saying that trump university was a fraud. we could painstakingly fact collect her as well. i think fact checkers sometimes are a little off especially some out there that painstakingly check donald trump. but the fact is, he is right. he laid out facts about the clinton foundation, laid out facts about benghazi. cited victims of benghazi's families who said that hillary clinton lied to them, point blank. these are facts that she has to answer. >> well -- >> i mean, i've interviewed family members, some who have personal grievances with hillary clinton and some who do not share the anger. trump did go after her very directly and it was very personal. he called her a world-class liar, among the things he said. just play a little more of that.
4:08 pm
>> hillary clinton wants to be president. but she doesn't have the temperament or as bernie sanders said, very strongly, the judgment to be president. she does not have the judgment. she believes she's entitled to the office. her campaign slogan is "i'm with her." you know what my response is to that? i'm with you, the american people. >> strong line? >> i'm with you, to me, refers to a very, very narrow group of people, as he's been talking about through his campaign. the words that came to my mind, churlish and worthy of a school yard. that's what his speech exemplified to me. whereas if you compared that to hillary, her speech today laid out very substantial policy recommendations for the future and enumerated them very well. you're not going to see that from donald trump. i don't care what kind of stage craft comes to his aid. i don't care what kind of
4:09 pm
teleprompters he can put up and be more scripted and more constrained. you can -- i mean, forget what you say, but i'm not going to forget how you made me feel. and i think the american voters have developed a very strong opinion of donald trump, 70% unfavorables. i don't see that going away by any kind of scripted event. >> mark, point out, though. paul ryan, who has come out and said, go ahead and vote your conscious at the convention. came out and said this is the kind of speech i want my mom knee to give. not an insignificant statement. donald trump, did he do what he needed to do? did he talk to the big donors and the establishment gop leadership and get them to stop undercutting him? >> let me answer this two ways. yes, he did in the sense that paul ryan at the end of donald trump's speech, didn't have to answer questions about donald trump attacking paul ryan or any of the other republican leaders or anyone else in the republican party. the focus was on hillary clinton. >> for a group of people. >> or a group of people. having said that, just as i was critical of hillary clinton's
4:10 pm
speech yesterday because i thought that it lacked the pizazz that it could have had, because i thought it was a little bit too boring. i think that donald trump today would have been better stylistically not to have a speech that went on for 45 minutes and ran the whole gamut. he would have been smart to break that speech up into several different speeches, given over several different weeks and focus in what he sees her biggest vulnerabilities. on the economy, on foreign policy and what have you. and then put his own prescriptions in. i think that would be stylistically a better way to attack hillary clinton. >> david, win or loss? >> i think he heartened his supporters, and i think he left the clinton people seething with anger. you know, it was a better crafted speech than he's been giving. it was more disciplined. it had the -- it had that -- i thought particularly effective line, you know, her motto is, i'm with her. my motto is, i'm with you. the american people. most effective line -- one of the most effective lines of his campaign, frankly. and i think a lot of his supporters will say it was not
4:11 pm
one speech that's going to make the difference. we're going to be looking out for a pattern, running up to the convention. but i think he helped himself in that regard. at the same time, i think we have to step back and ask what in the devil is happening to american politics. i mean, because this speech was the most slanderous speech i've heard by a nominee to a major party. he really -- >> phony, he called -- >> he's basically -- >> world-class liar, all of that in this speech. >> he is taking the distrust of hillary clinton, which is high, and the distaste for hillary clinton, which is high, and he's trying to turn it into she's corrupt. she's been enriching herself all her life at the public troth. there is no evidence to support -- he cited to two books. one by a secret service guy talking about her. that has been discredited by other people in the secret service. a second book called "clinton cash" and the author himself has said, you know, he made a lot of allegations, but he said i have no hard evidence to show -- >> that is true. but the "new york times" called
4:12 pm
that book meticulously sourced. those are the words of the "new york times," not my own. not only that, when you look at the book, there are some very real questions in there. and i know we're going to get into this in the next segment so i don't want to get into it too much -- >> questions do not make you corrupt. >> no, but here's the thing. why did bill clinton give a speech for $475,000 to a company and then that company, which was selling goods to iran, this tele con company all of a sudden not listed on a sanctions list. and this is not one allegation. there are multiple -- not by just this book, the "new york times," "the washington post" several reputable sources. >> when you make a charge someone is corrupt and you use as a presidential candidate a letter from a woman who says that hillary clinton ought to be in jail, not in white house, you're going to lengths we haven't seen in presidential politics and you ought to be held to a standard of truth. of truth. of being able to prove it. not just a series of allegations. >> all right. >> one thing. shouldn't hillary clinton then have to prove that donald trump is a fraud? >> guy he.
4:13 pm
>> i agree with that. >> but i think she has been. i think she's laying her campaign in speeches over time that will do that. it will undermine all of the rhetoric. >> there were a very serous allegations made of corruption. more coming up and the breaking news a dramatic sit-in, literally sitting on the floor, promising not to leave until there is a vote. they could be there for days, people. days. and did donald trump's kids convince him to fire his campaign manager? my guest tonight, eric trump, coming "outfront." and hillary clinton firing back at trump's attacks today. >> now think about it. he's going after me personally, because he has no answers on the substance. mr. brady, we've been expecting you.
4:14 pm
will you be needing anything else? no. not a thing. beautyrest black. get your beautyrest. and intellectual propertylines about bubeing stolen.g hacked beautyrest black. that is cyber-crime. and it affects each and every one of us. microsoft created the digital crimes unit to fight cyber-crime. we use the microsoft cloud to visualize information so we can track down the criminals. when it comes to the cloud, trust and security are paramount. we're building what we learn back into the cloud to make people and organizations safer.
4:15 pm
you can use whipped topping made ...but real joyful moments.. are shared over the real cream in reddi-wip. ♪ reddi-wip. share the joy. they keep telling me "drink more water."
4:16 pm
"exercise more." i know that. "try laxatives..." i know. believe me. it's like i've. tried. everything! my chronic constipation keeps coming back. i know that. tell me something i don't know. (vo) linzess works differently from laxatives. linzess treats adults with ibs with constipation, or chronic constipation. it can help relieve your belly pain, and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements that are easier to pass. do not give linzess to children under 6 and it should not be given to children 6 to 17. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain, especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea, sometimes severe. if it's severe stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach-area pain and swelling. talk to your doctor about managing your symptoms proactively with linzess. tonight, hillary clinton and
4:17 pm
donald trump going to war over the clinton foundation. trump hammering her in a speech over donations the organization took while secretary of state. and clinton now firing back. >> she ran the state department like her own personal hedge fund doing favors for oppressive regimes and many others and really many, many others in exchange for cash. pure and simple, folks. pure and simple. >> the clinton foundation helps poor people around the world get access to life-saving medicine. donald trump using poor people around the world to produce his line of suits and ties. >> drew griffin "outfront." and drew, so much has been made of the clinton foundation. taking money from corrupt regimes. so let's get the facts here. how much money, what corrupt regimes? >> well, they are specifically talking about these middle eastern countries, poor human rights records, poor records when it comes to women's' rights
4:18 pm
and even some tacitly supporting terrorism. and you're talking about big money too here, erin. $14.5 million from saudi arabia. now, on saudi arabia, they say none of that money came while she was secretary of state. but you also have 5 to $10 million from kuwait and on down the line. actually governments giving money to the clinton foundation. >> so donald trump now trying to draw a direct connection between donations to the clinton foundation and hillary clinton's decisions as secretary of state. some sort of quid pro quo. is there anything to that from your reporting at this time? >> erin, this is one of the most hotly debated questions surrounding all this money that clinton foundation takes in and the amount of money bill clinton has personally been given for speeches or consulting or sitting on boards while mrs. clinton was secretary of state. a huge amount of money, hundreds of millions of dollars. but drawing connections between her specific actions at the state department and these
4:19 pm
donations is hard to prove. i'll give one example. monsanto, the global food giant trying to increase worldwide business in the biotech food industry. it's a major donor to the clinton foundation, somewhere between 1 and $5 million and also takes part in a lot of projects through the frooundati. and monsanto asked for help from the state department in trying to open up new markets and hillary clinton has made some statements supporting the industry. does that mean there was a pay to play arrangement here? the clinton campaign, of course, says no. mrs. clinton was just supporting american business and americans in general, but a lot of people raise it as a conspiracy theory. >> all right. drew griffin, thank you very much. all right. my panel is back with me. let me start with you. all right. you can say monsanto, good example drew gave. lobbying, while donating. but there is no direct evidence that anything inappropriate happened, he said. you can certainly explain that with she's helping promote american business.
4:20 pm
>> two quick points. one, a lot of circumstantial evidence. so for instance the "new york times" reported that clinton did not disclose she was required to disclose, but did not disclose a $2.35 million donation from a company called uranium one. subsequently as approved by the state department to acquire 20% of the united states uranium. and jennifer reuben at the "washington post" makes a good point. if you destroy evidence, 33,000 e-mails or hide donations that then is evidence, spoelation of evidence, evidence you are hiding something for a adverse reason. she makes the argument analogizing it to the mcdonnell case, where we remember governor mcdonnell's case says perhaps there is a case, totally fine for donald trump to make this inference. >> what do you say, david? does any of this add up to you? >> i think it's very important for the clinton foundation to issue a white paper or open up its the bhox books in some fashion. of i do think transparency --
4:21 pm
>> every donation listed. >> i think it would be very forward-leaning. because is there is a distrust of mrs. clinton and he's got to deal with that not only to win the election but to govern. i think she ought to take a transparent approach to this. having said that, i also think it's sort of like -- you know, we have got to get serious about how the world works. you know, there are -- philanthropy is driving economic change and development in the world, bringing people out of poverty. and a lot of this money goes into working with the poor, working with the questions of climate change. and that is -- look at america. i raised money from our governments for scholarships to send arab students to american university. you know, other people do that. this is the way the world works. if you're not going to do it through government, you know, and investments, then philanthropy is an incredibly important part of how we advance people in this country and in the world. >> so would you recommend as hillary clinton supporter they
4:22 pm
put everything out? because i think you raise a very fair point. big part of the problem here is that kaye lee listed the uranium company. why not lead and put them all out there? let everybody sniff around it? >> i think they have been transparent and accountable. this is a nonprofit foundation. you have to do that. she acknowledged in an interview that some things fell through the cracks. i don't think she has a problem with being transparent. for full disclosure, she talked about the work that's been done in africa where with hiv and aids. i've been on the trips and seen the work that's been done. going to countries where the average life expectscy is 36 years old. there is transparency and accountability with respect to the work they're doing. so -- but when you throw out certain words about, you know, the trying to create this causality, you're not finding it and i don't think you will. >> there is also a problem with the charitable aspect. if we look through the 2014 tax returns of the clinton foundation they spend more on
4:23 pm
administrative costs far more on charitable givings. approximately 10% or just that over on charitable givings. and a top charity watchdog organization put them on a watch list because of this. so there are real questions about this foundation and it's great the work you criteria. that is great. but we need to look into this organization. >> it's a leap to go from questions to charge somebody with being corrupt. and that they're enriching themselves. and there's a real distinction as you know, having gone to law school, that you have got to be careful about what you say in a presidential campaign. if you wish to be president, there's a standard we expect. >> neither of these candidates should be president then. because hillary clinton -- >> well, a lot of americans believe that. >> hillary clinton calling donald trump a fraud with no evidence of that. >> the attorney general has stated -- >> two newer candidates, quite frankly, given their high negatives right now. >> okay. on this point, though. the point of trustworthiness. this is a serious issue when it comes to the foundation of hillary clinton. more people think donald trump is honest and trustworthy than
4:24 pm
think hillary clinton, among registered voters. he beats her by eight points. 45% to 37. they're both under water. americans think they're both liars. but he does a lot better than she does. that's pretty significant. >> significant and something that has dogged the clintons since in the public eye, certainly in the national public eye, because they seem to be secretive and along the lines do as i say not as i do. telling us how to live our lives but yet live to a different standard. >> that's an important -- point. >> right and that's a big problem for them. with donald trump, it appears, right, that he is speaking his mind and being truthful. now maybe he is, maybe he isn't. but the appearance is he is. and that's why you see him -- >> appearance is not it. >> absolutely, appearance is 99.9% of a victory. it absolutely is. >> voting for president is often about. about your gut, about your emotion. not about facts add up or do not add up. it's just not. for most voters. all right. all coming back, next trump bragging he is the king of debt.
4:25 pm
is that good for this country or not? and breaking news live on capitol hill. a sit-in that could last for days and days. they're going to sit there on the floor in their suits and dresses. we're going to talk to one dwong congressman in that room and not leaving. we'll find out why. amazing is moving like one. real is making new friends. amazing is getting this close. real is an animal rescue. amazing is over twenty-seven thousand of them. there is only one place where real and amazing live. seaworld. real. amazing a farmer's what's in this kiester. a fire truck. even a marching band. and if i can get comfortable talking about this kiester, then you can get comfortable using preparation h. for any sort of discomfort in yours. preparation h. get comfortable with it.

. new tonight, donald trump, hillary clinton going toe-to-toe. within hours, the two presumptive nominees went before camera to slam what they claim is their opponent's abysmal track record when it comes to money. >> donald trump offers no real solutions for the economic challenges we face. >> hillary clinton gave china millions of jobs, our best jobs. >> we can't let donald trump bankrupt america the way he bankrupted his casinos. >> she gets rich making you poor. >> jeff zeleny is "outfront" with more. ♪ this is my fight song >> reporter: hillary clinton is striking back. >> he's going after me personally, because he has no answers on the substance.
4:30 pm
>> reporter: hours after donald trump searing attack, clinton offering a poignant rebuttal. she calls trump unfit to lead the u.s. economy. >> he has no real strategy for creating jobs, just a string of empty promises. and maybe we shouldn't expect better from someone whose most famous words are "you're fired." >> reporter: in back-to-back speeches, a theme is emerging, as she tries defining donald trump. >> in fact, he doubled down on being the king of debt. he says "i playing with debt." >> reporter: trump defending himself, embracing that label and trying to explain. >> i'm the king of debt. i'm great with debt. i made a fortune using debt and if things don't work out, i renegotiate the debt. >> reporter: their dueling appearances, insults aside, opening a debate over the direction of the economy. >> donald trump offers no real solutions for the economic challenges we face.
4:31 pm
he just continues to spout reckless ideas that will run up our debt and cause another economic crash. >> reporter: trump, hitting clinton hard on nafta and other trade agreements. fighting words in the critical rust belt battleground states. >> i have decided, and visited cities and towns across america, all across america, and seen the devastation caused by the trade policies of bill and hillary clinton. and it's total devastation. >> reporter: fewer policy ideas emerging than accusations. >> our trade deficit with china soared 40% during hillary clinton's time as secretary of state. a disgraceful performance for which she should not be congratulated but rather scorned. >> reporter: clinton making sure she intends to make trump own his words and proposals. >> here's the bottom line.
4:32 pm
economists left, right and center all agree. donald trump will drive america back into recession. >> reporter: now, if you are looking for a high-minded discussion on the economy from these presidential candidates, you are likely disappointed. far more insults than new ideas. but hillary clinton is intent on branding donald trump. not calling him a liar as he did her, but trying above all to show voters he is in this for himself, and he has little interest or ability to lift the economy for anyone else. >> all right, jeff zeleny, thank you. and now gene sperling, peter i can't navarro. start your engines. peter, let me start with you. donald trump keeps embracing this term "king of debt." okay, the united states has a hell of a lot of it. but it's not what you want to brag about. it's not what you want to emphasize that you're good at, especially when his record on debt is basically saying i'm not going to pay it all back and negotiating with people. that's not what the united
4:33 pm
states can can do. what would he do? >> well, let's set the central fact of the debate. first of all, when obama took office, the debt was $10 trillion. when he leaves office, it's going to be $20 trillion. so my poll gees to mr. trump. what donald trump is, erin, he's the king of managing debt. and managing debt is both a skill and a strategy. it's a strategy that you and i adopt when we go refinance our home mortgages to take advantage of a lower interest rate. it's a strategy that a business executive adopts when they do something like roll over short-term debt into long-term debt to lock in lower interest rates. so i have no problem at all. in fact, i celebrate donald trump for being the king of managing debt. it is smart. and that's what donald trump will do. and he is going to be inherited with $20 trillion -- >> so he'll do lower interest rates. but he's not going to go in and say, oh, guess what, i'm not
4:34 pm
going to pay it back. you better take 3 cents on the dollar or something. like argentina -- that is not what the united states does. >> erin, he distinguishes very clearly between what the government does, what businesses does. but the thing is, do you want a professional business person in there with a skill and the ability to strategyize over managing what is going to be a really big debt versus hillary clinton who has never refinance's a mortgage in her life, personally. and she wouldn't have a clue about the interest rate cycle. >> gene? >> you know, it's just -- it's just stunning that we have a nominee for president from the republican party who does not show even the slightest understanding of what it means to honor the u.s. debt or take care of the way you talk about the competence of the united states' dollar, the united states' full faith in credit. 1790, alexander hamilton, our
4:35 pm
founding father, laid out the playbook. he said when it comes to our national debt, we have to have 100% ironclad commitment to keeping our word. we shouldn't even do things that raise any degree of question. now you have donald trump, and i'm -- going to quote from him. he says, "you know, you borrow and if your economy crashes, you make a deal." then he says it's like going no a poker game. and when he's called on the fact that he's essentially carelessly threatening default, he says we'll just print the money. so this is a person who is running for president, who is raising the specter of default, the specter of printing money, does he have any clue that talking -- even talking that way could be catastrophic? this is why the economists, when they were listing the threats to the global economy list donald trump being president as a higher threat than -- even a higher threat than the impact terrorism might have on the global economy.
4:36 pm
that's rather stunning. >> peter, i see you laughing but when gene quoted trump, he quoted him correctly. let me play how he put it when he was on cnbc. >> i would borrow, knowing if the economy crashed, you could make a deal. >> you're not talking about renegotiating sovereign bonds that the u.s. has already issued. >> no, i don't want to renegotiate the bonds. but i think you can do discounting. >> peter, he said it. i would borrow knowing that if the economy crashed, you could make a deal. when gene says those are words not used by leaders of the united states, gene is right there. >> i disagree with that. i think that if we're in a situation where we can renegotiate our debt, particularly with a country like china, which is basically run up our debt with them by using unfair trade practices, it's all fair game. and to me, you know, gene used the word "stunning." what's really stunning to me, hillary clinton has one of her top economic advisers here, and gene sperling, he was the architect of china entering the
4:37 pm
world trade organization in the year 2000 and here we are 16 years later with a massive debt, 50,000 fact he troos shut, unless of jobs exported to china. and this man's giving advice to hillary clinton and knocking the businessman who is a successful bi billi billion air who has a skill sess. it's a spin cycle. the economist magazine, from nafta to the world trade organization, south korean deal -- >> gene, you have a chance to respond here, obviously. >> every single serious person, democrat or republican, who has held any position or responsibility knows that for a president of the united states to talk about the faulting on the debt or printing money could be cats traffic. that's not democrat or republican. that's every serious person. secondly, his private sector
4:38 pm
experience, we have list after list of the degree he bill beings -- takes advantage, pays only pennies of dollars on small business people. you know, cabinet makers, people who install air conditioners, glass. these are not -- this is not the kind of american values people want in a business leader. and third, you want to talk about manufacturing jobs? in the last two presidents, their total record is losing 6 million manufacturing jobs. manufacturing jobs were gained almost 400,000 under president clinton and they have been gaining under barack obama since the end of the recession. the key is enforcement. and under president bush, they never enforced -- since the recession ended. and under president bush, they never enforced the trade agreements. what hillary clinton is talking about is being tough, is enforcing trade agreements. that's why -- >> she hasn't been tough for 15 years. >> why isn't that the auto workers -- >> the south korean -- the auto
4:39 pm
workers! i'll tell you what, gene -- >> very quickly. because we're almost out of time. >> the leadership -- >> gene -- >> all right. i'm going to have to -- only going to have to hit pause there, because we literally are out of time. if i let you both back in, we're way over. i please hope you will both come back. one of the most crucial topics. tonight, cnn's town hall with the libertarian presidential ticket. what are their ideas to save the economy? tonight, 9:00 eastern. and next, did donald trump's kids stage an intervention with their dad? i'm going to ask his son, eric. he's my guest. and the democrats staging a sit-in. no end in sight. >> so today we come to the house to dramatize the need for action! not next month! not next year! but now! today!

"outfront" now, donald trump's
4:44 pm
son, eric. >> good to be here, erin. >> obviously, this is a success. when you look at the overall membe numbers, $42 million for the clinton campaign, just over $1 million for the trump campaign. are you going to close that gap? >> truly one of the dishonest sound bites. we started raising money on may 28th. last night we had a fund-raiser where we raised $6 million. we are raising so much money online. we are doing so exactly well. so hold on, my father self funding through may. believe me, we're going to raise a lot of money. and it's also nice. we don't need the amount of money that hillary needs. she has 737 people on staff. you know how many we have? 70. her operation is bloated, crazy. we run a lean operation. quite frankly, this country should be the same way. >> some of the big donors i had spoken to, some things your father had said, not just the ban on muslims coming into the country, but other things. mexican judge issue. that made them really pause and say they didn't want to do it.
4:45 pm
today he gave a 40-minute speech, prepared on a teleprompt teleprompter. paul ryan who as you know, said delegates should vote their conscious, said this is the kind of speech -- >> he said he should have said senators should vote their conscious. >> it wasn't exactly what you would want to hear him say. today he said this is the kind of speech a nominee would give. an endorsement your dad gave today. eight priorities in the speech. and what i think is important, i didn't see the word in here, wall, china, mexico, deporting people wasn't in here. banning muslims wasn't in here. none of those things were in there. >> i think they're big themes of the speech. i don't think one has any parallel with the other. but my father was actually spending a lot of time in the speech talking about how you can't allow 200,000 syrian refugees into this country. here we have inner cities all over the country with minorities who have, you know 56% unemployment. and we're thinking about bringing 200,000 people in that
4:46 pm
the fbi and the cia and intelligence agencies say have elements of isis and elements of terror in it. and actually spent a lot of time talking about that and i think he will be very firm on the border, because he believes this nation actually has to have borders, laws and we have to obey these laws. >> words matter, though. and on these -- gave eight priorities for his first 100 days. and like i said, there was no wall. there was no deportation. there was no muslim ban. this was a teleprompter speech. purposeful. something to get people like paul ryan on board. talked about immigration, but didn't say ban people. >> also, i think we're missing another point. you're referring to money the republican national party has raised significantly more money since the beginning of this fiscal year than the dnc. so obviously, something about his message is resonating, right? the rnc raised $155 million. the dnc raised about $100 million. so something about the message is resonating. no, i mean, his focus was really on hillary. >> your father is known for
4:47 pm
being loyal, perhaps to a fault. corey lewandowski example number one when it comes to that. one of your father's close friends saying when the whole issue of the reporter happened of the alleged battery that might have been the time to part ways. your father didn't want to do it then because he was loyal. wanted to stay on board with him. >> no, he didn't want to do it at that point because nothing happened. nothing happened. there was clear video evidence that nothing happened. but he is loyal to a fault. he loves people. if people are loyal to him he'll give the shirt off his back. he's a great man, a great father. he is a very, very loyal person. and he does -- believe me, that's the worst thing you can do, letting somebody go is the worst thing you have too. >> so obviously the reporting is, it was you and your siblings who sat down with him and said, dad, it's time. it's time for corey lewandowski to go. is that what happened? >> listen, i have immense respect for corey. i really do. i have immense respect for corey and he knows that.
4:48 pm
campaigns migrate overtime. corey is an amazing guy who got us from a point of hey -- here's a candidate who has never run for any political office, and he wins the republican primary with more votes than any person in the history of this country. you know, so he's a republican nominee now. but at the same time, campaigns have to grow. campaigns have to evolve. campaigns have to change to a certain extent. running in all 50 states at the same time is very different than, you know, winning new hampshire or winning nevada or, you know, winning these states. campaigns really evolve over time. the size of campaigns. the messages of campaigns. you know, where you have to be in a campaign. it evolves over time and accordingly changes are made. i really have tremendous respect for corey. he's a great guy on a personal level and he really -- he helped us get where we are today. >> marco rubio spoke to cnn and has asked -- obviously says he's now running for re-election for the senate. he had said he wouldn't do that and now he is. and he was asked if he would campaign for your father. here's what he said.
4:49 pm
>> not that i'm looking to undermine him but i think some key issues are so significant that i just don't plan to campaign -- i've got to run my own race. >> your response? >> you know, that doesn't say much to me. i've gotten to know marco and his wife well throughout the process. we see these people all of the time. they're good people. i think when you have 17 people standing up on stage and you put every ounce of your energy into winning such a brutal process and you don't ultimately win, you know, it's hard. it's a hard thing. believe me. this is a grueling, nasty, tough process. you put everything you have into it your family puts everything you have. it's tough. and i think sometimes it takes time and that's probably what marco needs. and, you know, i think at the same time, we have so many of the same objectives. the first objective is not allowing hillary to win because she would be an absolute disaster for in nation and we have another four years of obama. but i think he'll ultimately come around. and i think you need time to heal battle wounds. >> eric trump,

or any of its ingredients. most people using stelara® saw 75% clearer skin and the majority were rated as cleared or minimal at 12 weeks. be the you who talks to your dermatologist about stelara®. if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis isn't it time to let the real you shine through? introducing otezla, apremilast. otezla is not an injection, or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. some people who took otezla saw 75% clearer skin after 4 months. and otezla's prescribing information has no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't take otezla if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. otezla may increase the risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts, or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment. side effects may include diarrhea, nausea, upper respiratory tract infection, and headache.

4:54 pm
list from buying guns, another for background checks. they have been over it more than eight hours. nancy pelosi said they won't stop until they have a bill, which might be for days. comes after the worst mass shooting in history. john lewis is leading the protest. >> the time for silence and patience is long gone. we're calling on the leadership of the house to bring common sense gun control legislation to the house floor. give us a vote. let us vote! we came here to do our job. we came here to work. >> congressman chris van hollen from maryland is staging the sit in, joins me by phone obviously in that room. congressman, i don't know if you know the breaking news, house republicans are going to try to end this, force you to end this tonight. how long is it going to last? >> you're right. i'm just getting word as i am on the floor that the republicans are going to come and try to
4:55 pm
break this up. not quite sure how they're going to do it. this is just one more indication that they don't want to take any action. you know, after newtown, we had a moment of silence, and charleston, same thing, orlando. what we said is you can turn off the microphone but you can't stop us from having a sit in on the floor and demanding we have a vote and real action. >> the house speaker paul ryan spoke about what's happening on the floor, what you're doing, congressman, and he says it's all about publicity. here is how he put it. >> they know that we will not bring a bill that takes away a person's constitutionally guaranteed rights without their due process. this is a publicity stunt. they're trying to get you to ask those questions for publicity sake. this isn't trying to get a solution to a problem, this is trying to get attention. >> publicity stunt? >> erin, i think that's disrespectful to the nation, it is disrespectful to the families who lost loved ones and what's
4:56 pm
most disrespectful to the american public is the refusal to even hold a vote. they hold the american public in such contempt that they're scared to have a vote in the open light of day on a fundamental question where 90% of the american public supports common sense measures like you talked about, no fly, no buy. universal background checks. have a vote. this is called the people's house. the people of the united states deserve a vote on this public safety measure. >> a quick bottom line. he says if you're on the no fly list, maybe you don't deserve to be on it, that's the point of due process. you can't take away someone's right to buy a gun. you find that to be utter, trying to use a polite word, utterly untrue. >> look, erin, ifs speaker has a genuine issue, the speaker should come forward with their own proposal to address the issue.
4:57 pm
we have gun violence on the streets every day. they never raised this issue. if he wants to put on the floor a bill that addresses those issues, do it. we are insisting we have a vote and that we do it now. >> thank you very much, appreciate your time, congressman van hollen, as always. we'll be right back. nice to meet you! today we're going to talk about the all-new 2016 chevy cruze, but here's the catch. you're only going to answer me in emojis. so, this cruze has built-in 4g lte wifi® with 24 gigs of data. wow. (message sent sfx) strong! it also comes with 24 months of siriusxm satellite radio.
