tv   CNN Tonight With Don Lemon  CNN  July 19, 2016 11:00pm-12:01am PDT

11:00 pm
11:01 pm
red meat speeches rally the crowd on night two of the gop convention. this is "cnn tonight."
11:02 pm
i'm don lemon. hillary clinton gets name checked in a fiery speech by chris christie. the crowd chanting their favorite slogan "lock her up." that's what they were chanting tonight. but this night was officially all about donald trump. joining me now the california delegate who announced her state's 172 votes for trump, with her three sons standing by her, and she is -- you saw her, she's with her sons, douglas, kenneth and jonathan. i watched that moment today. you were so animated and larger than life, and you were so passionate. it was great. let's watch that moment. let's watch what you said. >> i'm the mother of three boys of the greater los angeles area. mr. chairman, it is so important that my sons, my three sons -- >> yeah! >> -- have hope and opportunity for their future, that there are
11:03 pm
good jobs and there are families that need safety in their communities. >> that's right! >> mr. chairman, donald trump is the candidate that can provide for my boys, and all of californians the hope and opportunity of the true america. >> kenneth, look at your face -- >> i'm doug. >> i thought you were the 19-year-old. douglas, how old are you? who's 19? >> i'm 19. >> and you're jonathan. >> yes, sir. >> you're 26. >> 28. >> oh, 28. >> why do you think -- you're here with your family, his family has been on stage talking about him. why is he right for your family? >> because he's for all american families. look, we haven't had a president so vibrant, so on point, so
11:04 pm
non-politician in decades. mr. trump has such a passion for success, not only with himself, but with his children. but i believe america will be his extended family and we're part of that. >> what's the number one issue? tonight it was make america work again. >> urban communities. i'm part of an organization called urban game changers and we hold elected officials accountable. we're in texas, florida, louisiana. and i think the biggest challenge right now is a lot of urban communities are confused. they don't know who to vote for. a lot of them were for bernie sanders, and now bernie is telling them to go for hillary. he made it clear all the flaws that mrs. clinton has done. >> you talk about urban communities, you're mainly talking about people of color. the polls have shown that he's not going to get a lot of support from african-americans. and he has issues with women.
11:05 pm
are you bothered by any of the rhetoric surrounding people of color and women? >> absolutely not. african-american people have not voted yet. mr. trump has not really debated hillary yet. so there's a lot of hope for us. they're hungry. they want to learn. african-american people are tired of the black communities, of the police brutality. but on the other hand, the men in blue are important to our communities. >> say that again. you said there are two different issues, but both of them we can tackle. i don't think people hear that often enough. >> right. >> we want our men and women in blue, but we want people to do their jobs properly and not target people. >> absolutely. for every action is a reaction. for every nonaction is an aftermath. and we are encountering the aftermath of the clinton administration that took place back in the '90s, doing mass
11:06 pm
incarceration of black families. that crime bill was him and his wife. they were champions for that bill. look at the families incarcerated on bull crap. three strikes you're out laws. >> the difference between crack and powder cocaine. >> a little weed that an adult could smoke. i want my young men to realize there are millions of black men with moms out there, that want a family. and california represents that so strongly. >> i want to bring the boys in. you've spoken about them so strongly. do you agree with your mother on donald trump? >> absolutely. >> yes. >> completely. >> why so? >> realistically, he's for the future that we see as the brightest, that we see down the line we can make something of ourselves, to have the opportunity to live and be better than we were. right now, things are not that way. >> i'm a business owner of two separate businesses and trump comes from a business point of
11:07 pm
view where he wants americans to be entrepreneurs and grow. i'm trying to do the best i can. i can get a president in place that's going to help push entrepreneurs -- >> is he a role model as a business person? >> definitely. they grew up in a place where they were republicans and grew up in a free market with capitalism that gave them that chance and i need that. >> do people say to you, why do you support donald trump? >> all the time. >> people have this weird type of idea that because of your skin color or your gender, that y'all must think the same. and that the independent thinkers talk amongst each other. there's one thing i would ask the american people is to bring back the idea of open dialogue and have intellectual confidences about ideas. donald trump has brought in an era of slaying this pc, this
11:08 pm
thing that is stopping people from having conversations about ideas. let knowledge and truth come forth and burn away the lies and stupidy. >> i've been saying this for the last couple of nights when people of color who traditionally don't support donald trump is african-americans are not a monolith. >> they're not a what? >> everybody doesn't think alike. we don't look in the dictionary and say this is what you have to do to be black. what is the most powerful thing -- you're the youngest, right? >> yes. >> what is the most powerful thing you heard tonight? >> the most powerful thing i heard tonight, for me personally is when donald trump, jr. was talking about the schools. i just came out of school, and i went through the school system. i understand what he was talking about. all of these kids are told if you go to college, you're set, they're going to hand you a job and everything. they don't tell you that you
11:09 pm
have to make a name for yourself. everybody thinks it's going to be handed to them. because these schools have an underlying agenda of just get these kids to school so we can get our money. >> what do you say to people on the fence? right now, the people who are going to vote for him are the people that are going to vote for him. but he needs to add people to win this election. what do you say to people who may be independent or struggling or on the fence? >> i would say stop for a moment, stop thinking about the emotional side and about all the political games the media may or may not be doing. go to their websites, look at your morals, what you want to get done. find out what your agenda is, find out their agenda, and find out who matches closely. and for us, it is donald trump. >> donald j. trump, that is the answer. there is no other. i really feel that he's the candidate that will help us reach the goals we want to reach. >> talk to your community, ask
11:10 pm
parents and friends. >> shirley, what does it -- how did you get to be the person that -- >> but for the grace of god i go. and the chairman came to me and asked me -- i've been involved with the republican party for a long time. >> yes, there are black conservatives. >> yes, there are black conservatives. >> they exist. >> give me your final pitch. >> hillary clinton wants to continue to think that black children in america are predators. she still comes in different ways and says that, we are super predators. she's said nit the past. i also believe that education, communication is the key thing to understand. don't judge us based on the republican party's name, but talk to a republican. ask them what that is. we need small enterprise in the urban communities and thank god for mr. trump because he understands that. >> let me ask you this. you remember after the republicans lost that they did
11:11 pm
this whole post mortem, do you think the republican party has done enough to reach out to people in color? >> the republican party was in trouble. they understood that we needed a new regime and ideology and that's why we've embraced mr. trump. we're not going towards that politician side, we're going to the trump side that talks about education and security. security is something that he's emphasizing and black families need a better representative. >> thank you all. >> god bless you. and god bless california. >> thank you very much. we're going to break? all right. i need to get to manu. i understand you have some news on ted cruz's speech tomorrow night? >> that's right. this is the first time that we're going to hear from ted cruz sense he dropped out of the presidential race. he'll speak in depth and publicly. one thing we are hearing is that
11:12 pm
he will not endorse donald trump tomorrow night, according to reporting from our colleague dana bash. this is an interesting position that ted cruz is in, because i've been talking to cruz advisers and allies and a lot of them expect him to run for president again in 2020, especially if donald trump loses. he wants to be sympathetic to that never trump movement and folks who do not like the way cruz himself was treated by donald trump on the campaign trail. but at the same time, he doesn't want to look like he's prevent thing party from uniting behind donald trump. so he's kind of in a box, don, so he's not going to endorse donald trump tomorrow night, but he will make some calls for the party to unite against hillary clinton. so an interesting predicament, but not expecting an endorsement tomorrow night. that's the news, don. >> so what do you think of it as you were watching this evening the biggest moment of the evening, was it donald trump, jr., what do you think it was? >> yeah, he clearly was.
11:13 pm
but there was some other interesting moments, as well. the congressional leadership essentially getting behind donald trump in a more forceful way than we heard before, particularly house speaker paul ryan, down playing his disagreements with donald trump. he said, all parties have these disagreements, but clearly his family again -- donald trump's family again playing a big role in making the case for donald trump. listen to donald trump, jr. talk about his father in a light that a lot of folks have not heard donald trump being spoken about in the past. >> let me tell you how he ran his businesses. and i know, because i was there with him, by his side on jobsites, in conference rooms, from the time i could walk. he didn't hide out behind some desk in an executive suite. he spent his career with regular
11:14 pm
americans. he hung out with the guys on construction sites, pouring sheetrock -- pouring concrete and hanging sheetrock. he listened to them and valued their opinions, as much and often more. he's recognized the tale that -- --.
11:15 pm
laying out the case against her, and you hear the crowd chant once again "lock her up, lock her up," talking about hillary clinton. that's become the unusual theme of this convention, don. >> manu, live, thank you. we'll be right back with much more live from the cnn grill here in cleveland. the mercedes-benz summer event. get to your dealer today for incredible once-a-season offers, and start firing up those grilles. lease the c300 for $379 a month at your local mercedes-benz dealer. mercedes-benz. the best or nothing. i have a resident named joyce, and i said "come to class,bout let's start walking together" and i said "and i bet you money you'll be able to do that senior walk". that day i said "ok it's me and you girl, me and you!" i said "if you need to stop, there's a bench we'll just hang out in the shade." she said "absolutely not! we are going to finish this race!" and we were the last ones in, but you know what?
11:16 pm
we finished the race. and she goes "desiree, i'll never quit walking. ever" but my back pain was making it hard to sleep and open up on time. then i found aleve pm. the only one to combine a safe sleep aid plus the 12 hour pain relieving strength of aleve. now i'm back. aleve pm for a better am.
11:17 pm
safety doesn't come in a box. it's not a banner that goes on a wall. it's not something you do now and then. or when it's convenient.
11:18 pm
it's using state-of-the-art simulators to better prepare for any situation. it's giving offshore teams onshore support. and it's empowering anyone to stop a job if something doesn't seem right. at bp, safety is never being satisfied. and always working to be better. as the gop officially picks donald trump as its nominee, one
11:19 pm
republican power broker is not in cleveland, and that's fox news chairman roger ailes, who may be on the verge of leaving his powerful post. i want to bring in cnn's senior politics reporter. i mean, this is a bombshell, right? >> this is a bombshell. >> i want to go to dilan buyers now. roger ailes in talks to leave the network following sexual harassment allegations. what's the latest? >> reporter: yeah, roger ails is in what we can call exit negotiations. there's no question that this investigation into the sexual harassment charges has yielded more admissions from more people, the latest report is that megyn kelly, the network's
11:20 pm
star anchor, has acknowledged improper behavior by roger ailes ten years ago, which is a bombshell, because she is the star at that network. it's a huge revelation. and what the murdoches and 21st century fox have concluded is it is no longer tenable for roger als to be in his position. so it's a huge moment in american history and american politics, when you consider how significant his influence has been on the republican party and the national discourse. so they're in exit negotiation. we could have an announcement tomorrow or next week. but they're figuring out how much he'll get paid, all the legal issues you have to go through in a case like this. >> again, as we said, this is a bombshell. let's go to amanda now. roger ails is a republican king maker in so many ways.
11:21 pm
he controls the most powerful conservative media platform in the world. how is this going to affect the gop? >> a lot of people will be interested in how their coverage will shift. many conservatives stopped watching fox news because they felt they were playing games with favoring a candidate. so it will be interesting to see how the conservative audience reaks. but i think it's impossible to talk about the topic without talking about what megyn kelly suche suffered. but also donald trump. certainly a theme throughout this election that is playing out in grand fashion at fox news. >> i want to ask you this, dilan. you mentioned megyn kelly, but
11:22 pm
"new york" magazine is reporting that megyn kelly rallied at least one colleague, a former anchor, to speak out against roger ailes, because she felt like people weren't getting the whole story. what do you make of this? >> reporter: what we do know is that what gretchen carlson alleges, she's not the only one alleging that. there are many stories about his behavior within the network. look, he has a lot of defenders within the network, many have come forward publicly. but there are people with allegations going back to the 1960s, as gabe sherman also reported. we know even from megyn kelly's lawyer that she cooperated fully with the investigation, that she was truthful was the quote, that she did tell the investigators something that would echo some of gretchen carlson's allegations. and it's quite easy to deduce from that, it's not inconcei
11:23 pm
inconceivable she talked to other people to come forward. >> i think this moment in time where we are, with where the republican party is, fox has played a huge role in that. if you look over the last ten years, how we have looked at this divide between the grassroots and the establishment of the party, the kinds of stories that fuel grassroots activists, in iowa and new hampshire town halls, dedicated fox news viewers because of what roger ailes put together there, donald trump's nomination is a result of this long-time, sort of -- i don't want to call it a takeover, but of increased influence of fox inside the republican party. >> what do you think the influence is on the gop? >> roger ailes has had a significant influence on the gop. you look at fox news started in
11:24 pm
1996, the end of the clinton years and ushered in the era of the new republican, the era of bush. fox news has left an indelible impression on the republican party. >> i disagree completely with all due respect. donald trump, when he first started the campaign, he almost operate t outside of the fox news bubble, who wanted a more traditional candidate. >> i agree with that. >> he had to fight with fox news. >> it wasn't that fox favored the trump campaign at all. but what gave to trump's rise are some of the same elements that roger ailes tapped into in the country. >> let me push back. he would get like a couple of days, i'm not going to go on fox news and then be on every show on fox news. >> his personal relationship
11:25 pm
with bill o'reilly -- >> and hannity. >> if he goes, they'll go to the bottom of the basement in ratings. >> he was on "hannity" all the time, he's on bill o'reilly's show all the time. he didn't operate outside of fox, that's not true. >> the idea that fox news created the candidacy, i have a problem with that. donald trump operated outside of all traditional lines. that's where his candidacy came from. >> he ultimately did get champions at fox. look at sean hannity's coverage. >> he was more of a ted cruz guy, sean hannity. >> you know, it's going to be very interesting where the leadership is and how they choose to cover stories from now on. fox didn't have a lot of
11:26 pm
coverage of the plagiarism story. >> i think "the new york post" is saying that they're doing a story on it, and who owns "the post?" rupert murdoch. that's a signal. >> and you can't get away from the influence that roger ailes has and the empire that he built. but this kind of issue is not just a republican issue, right? i mean, this happens sadly way too often in every business, you know, community or -- and not even just business. it happens everywhere. and what i think this underscores is that you have to look at this issue, make it seriously. when i first heard about this, the same things started to bubble up. a lot of people started questioning the women. well, what are they going to do about this? are they doing this just for the money? and you can't really blame them.
11:27 pm
you have to really underscore what is at stake. >> we should underscore the pending litigation, too. >> we're talking about end talks to leave. dilan, thank you very much. everybody else, stay with me. much more ahead, live here from the cnn grill in cleveland. ♪ is it a force of nature? or a sales event? the summer of audi sales event is here. get up to a $5,000 bonus on select audi models. i've been blind since birth. i go through periods where it's hard to sleep at night, and stay awake during the day. learn about non-24 by calling 844-844-2424. or visit

11:29 pm
11:30 pm
speaker after speaker at the gop convention last night, or tonight, however you want to see it, slamming hillary clinton. back with my dream team now.
11:31 pm
so chris christie unleashed a full-scale attack on hillary clinton's record and character. here it is. >> she fights for the wrong people. she never fights for us. she doesn't get the real threats that america faces. finally here at home, one of her first decisions as secretary of state, she set up a private e-mail server in her basement in violation of our national security. [ crowd boos ] let's face the facts. hillary clinton cared more about protecting her own secrets than she cared about protecting america's secrets. and then she lied about it over and over and over again. we didn't disqualify hillary clinton to be president of the united states. the facts of her life and career disqualify her. >> all right.
11:32 pm
so let's talk about it, kailee and andy, how did chris christie do, was his speech effective? >> i thought he was excellent. i'm a big chris christie fan. when trump was torn with the vice presidential decision, he was weighing that chris christie is so effective as a communicator. he's most famous for the new hampshire -- some call it the murder/suicide when he took out marco rubio, which blew up his own candidacy. chris christie is incredibly effective and did an excellent job tonight focusing on the issues with hillary clinton and her problematic behavior. he also has a gift for communication. like he values her secrets over american secrets. and i find him to be a very likable guy who was -- david mentioned it, he was saddled with this bridge gate, which somebody else was responsible for. but i like him. >> everybody says the buck stops
11:33 pm
with me when you're the governor or mayor or the president. someone else could be responsible even with melania trump, she probably didn't do it, but the words came out of it and you get stained with things even if you're not responsible for it. >> i'm not going to disagree with that, but at the end of the day he suffered a disproportionate blow to his career, versus something that he didn't do. >> kailee? >> i think that's right, and i agree with you about chris christie. >> you're a genius. >> no, you are. i thought chris christie was brilliant and i think it is effective. you look at hillary clinton. when the fbi director contradicted what she had been telling the american public, her honest numbers took a big hit. we saw them decline. now she's at 28% of the american people trusting her, that is abysmal. to lay out factually every reason the american public shouldn't trust her, i thought it was very effective.
11:34 pm
[ overlapping speakers ] >> you hear him talk about being possibly attorney general in the trump administration. there's a certain level of seriousness you need to have if you're to go to that high level and be in charge of dolling out justice for the executive branch. speeches like this are dangerous, because they come off as intensely political. so it was a good speech, fun, audience liked it. but if he wants to be a.g., that's going to damage him. >> should there have been more support for donald trump rather than criticism of hillary clinton in that? because it was -- >> yeah, sure. i think so. i think what that betrays is that first of all, there is not uniform support in the party for donald trump. speaker ryan, i don't think he even mentioned donald trump once -- >> no, he did, three times. >> wow.
11:35 pm
but clearly he has had big issues with things that donald trump has done, and you could tell that he was there to mostly talk about his agenda as opposed to talking about donald trump's agenda. for chris christie, i thought he was very effective for the people in that room. the red meat for the people who already support donald trump. i was waiting, though, after the whole litany of things that were not factually correct that he was talking about, and everybody that was holding up trump signs, i was waiting for everybody to pull out the pitchforks, pause that's what it felt like. >> i think we've seen now, because we are at the halfway point, we've seen two nights that have been really about dismantling hillary clinton as best the trump campaign can, really calling into question her competence and character and trying to dismantle her. what i am curious to see over the next two nights is, does the trump campaign make a turn here into these last two nights and really start filling in the
11:36 pm
vision forward? because you've got to remember, i know a lot of folks have been tuning into this election season. we've seen unprecedented levels of interest in it. but this is a moment where some new folks are tuning in for the first time, and all they know is sort of an snl version of donald trump, and now he's got two more nights to try to tell them what he's going to do. >> that's why it's so important, i feel, to hold people's feet to the fire and have them give facts, because so many people are watching and are just now starting to tune in and it's important when someone comes on that they say things that aren't necessarily true. chris christie had some things that were true and some things that were not true in his speech. if y so as an observer, there's been a lot of negativity. a lot of negativity about she did this, this person is pbad,
11:37 pm
we're not secure. where are the answers? how are you going to fix it? i have not seen much of that come from this convention thus far. >> one question i have, yes, people can agree that hillary clinton is bad, but how much more do you need to convince the public when her disapproval ratings are at record level highs. the public already doesn't like her. the work that needs to be done is warming up donald trump. >> his unlikability numbers, as well. [ overlapping speakers ] >> this is going to be nasty, nasty in the fall. >> this is where mike pence is so important, because this is someone who, when you listen to him speak, you cannot help but like him. he's a man of character and conviction and he's just really likable. i agree with david, that it is time to show this side and i think mike pence tomorrow is a huge opportunity to present that. >> i've got to go. we'll be right back.
11:38 pm
it's easy to love your laxative when that lax loves your body back. only miralax hydrates, eases, and softens to unblock naturally, so you have peace of mind from start to finish. love your laxative. miralax. fall in love with a new daily fiber. new mirafiber from the makers of miralax. it's the only fiber that supports regularity with dailycomfort fiber. so unlike others, mirafiber is less likely to cause unwanted gas. love your fiber. new mirafiber.
11:39 pm
11:40 pm
11:41 pm
back now live at the cnn grill in cleveland. night two of the gop convention ending with a prayer from my next guest. joining me now is the founder of muslims for trump. thank you for joining us. >> thank you for having me. >> you're a muslim, pakistani immigrant. >> that's right. >> i'm sure you're asked all the time why you support donald trump. >> that's the million dollar question. lots of americans are disappointed with washington, d.c. i went to law school twice. so that's the first thing. second thing is, the first candidate among the rest of whom has identified radical islam is
11:42 pm
a threat. we are a victim at the same time. and so donald trump has proven himself as a doer, a feperson w is not a traditional politician. so there are other things. >> you've spoke to him? >> yes, i did. >> were your nervous up there? >> not at all. i have been going to the rallies of donald trump, and the way i have received, it's amazing. the people have been coming and hugging me and taking pictures, and it's amazing. >> so when donald trump talks about a temporary ban on muslims coming into the country, how do you feel about that? >> you know, when he came one this idea of banning muslims, first of all, there was the incident in california. second thing, the flood of
11:43 pm
syrian refugees that were coming. and we have no strong immigration policy to vet them. we have no system -- we still don't have a system in place to see what are their objectives when they come here. and isis has said that we will send operators. >> want the temporary ban? >> safety for america is number one priority with donald trump. as a muslim-american, that's my number one priority, as well. >> so if there was a temporary ban in place, you may not have been able to come here. >> he said a ban in exceptions. i came as a student, and second thing he has said in his tweet, the people that don't agree with american values, they are not supposed to come here. but i love american values, i love this country. >> how do you figure that out? when you were coming here, how
11:44 pm
would someone have figured that out? >> i came here 30 years ago. let me tell you why. the country i was bosh and raised is next to china and russia. but i was so fascinated by the american dream, the coming together, people coming from different parts of the world and work hard. and i was inspired. the second reason was freedom of religion and freedom. when i came to the country, my country was run by a military dictator. and still today, most of the islamic countries are run by kings and dictators. >> there are people that want to come for freedom and they can't come. they may not be able to come if there's a temporary ban. >> if they want to come for the freedom, but look at what is going on today. we have a weak leadership. our country is the sole superpower on the planet. the last eight years, no foreign policy. the middle east is a nightmare. and due to weak leadership.
11:45 pm
we need a strong leader to come and take the drastic steps to identify and donald trump has identified that radical islam is a threat. >> just to nail it down. you're okay with a temporary on muslims? >> yes, i am. >> how do you figure that out, who is the right person to come in and not the right person? >> i think you are the bravest man, person that i've seen in the entire thing in cleveland here. the guts it takes to do what you're doing and speak the truth, i'm in awe of it, sir. i think you need to do more things for the campaign. >> 100%. >> to the idea of the muslim ban, there's certain countries, let's call them 10 to 15 problem countries that have extremist ideology and over 50% of the
11:46 pm
country believes in sharia law. we get to decide who comes into this country and we cannot let people with this terrible hatred come from these countries without extreme vetting. so it's more about american values and islam has wonderful values, too. but there are problem country, and to not be honest about that puts us all in danger. >> it didn't say extreme vetting, but a ban on muslims. >> i agree, something needs to be done. but the question is, how do you carry out something like this? certainly we need to find visa overstays, we need a better vetting process. what conversations have you had with the campaign about how he would go about this in a smart, strategic way? >> personally, i have met him but i haven't got into detail with him or the campaign.
11:47 pm
but he has several times, if you want to build a wall, there will be doors where people can come through with the legal process. if there is a ban, there will be exceptions. again, his top priority is america first. and i agree with him, and it's my number one priority at the same time. >> but america first -- >> as you were speaking tonight, someone said -- someone yelled out, no islam. how did that make you feel? >> the thing is, he has declined my objective to come here in cleveland. i stood up and i told the whole audience and everybody watching that there are muslims like myself, those that love this country and part of the american fabric. >> but you didn't like that? >> no. but there are troublemakers. when you look at the picture, everybody looking at it from a different angle and has a different opinion. >> and it's important to re
11:48 pm
realize -- when donald trump says america first, it means moderate muslims first who live in this country and want to be safe from radical islamists who want to kill moderate muslims. >> i have to get to a break. >> can i ask you a question in terms of foreign policy? don't you think that the way donald trump talks about islam is offensive to those countries and the leaders of those countries that we actually need to be allies of ours in the fight against terrorism? >> the thing is, to me look at islamic world right now. the majority of them are run by the kings and military dictators. we are a victim of our own oppression, and not only this, let me tell you, most of the kings and these dictators are supported my american foreign policy. so we have to revisit that.
11:49 pm
