tv   CNN Tonight With Don Lemon  CNN  August 11, 2016 8:00pm-9:01pm PDT

8:00 pm
i think about my own kids. they're the reason that i want to protect our community and our environment, and if me driving a that truck means that somebody gets to go home safer, then i'll drive it every day of the week. together, we're building a better california. donald trump doubling down on an accusation against president boston red sox and
8:01 pm
hillary clinto -- barack obama doubling down on a claim against president barack obama and hillary clinton. >> he said both would be eligible for the most valuable player award. >> i can still call you cnn correspondent. and andre bauer, the former lieutenant governor of south carolina who is a trump supporter. great to have both of you on. ryan, here's trump this morning on cnbc. >> people are complaining that i said he was the founder of isis? >> i i'm wondering how you think that's going to play in some battleground states. >> i don't know, whatever it is, it is. i'm a truth teller. all i do is tell the truth.
8:02 pm
if at the end of 90 days i fall short because i'm somewhat politically correct, even though i'm supposed to be the smart one and have a lot of good ideas, it's okay. i go back to a very good way of life. >> first he says he a truth teller while saying something that's completely not true, it's false. second, he says if he dozen lose, he'll go back and have a good life, he'll take a long vacation. tell me what you think of this. >> you said it. the first thing is the ridiculousness of saying he's a truth teller when he's lying. obviously barack obama is not the founder of isis. if you're going to tell an untruth, at least make it like semi-plausible. nobody thinks that barack obama is the founder of isis. i mean, if you're going to make a political point and bend the truth, it's got to be in the realm of the possible.
8:03 pm
so, you know, it's just an absurdity. on the other thing, though, he sounds like someone who is looking defeat in the face and is looking at these polls and looking at being 7 to 10 points down in most of the polls since the conventions and starting to wrap his head around the fact that things aren't working out for him and that whatever strategy he had for the general election, it's not working and he's talking about losing. >> are the bad polls getting to him, andre bauer? >> i don't think so. i think donald trump is shrewd. he doesn't have a washington dialect. he's unorthodox. sometimes it's not the way i would want him as a candidate to approach things but he's come with a different angle, don, that is appealing to a lot of people. what he's trying to do, i think, is reinforce this is another
8:04 pm
matter where the u.s. has gotten involved and it hasn't been solved and there's loss of american life and valor but we're not solving the problem. >> that's all well and good but that's not what he said. doesn't the truth matter, andre? >> the truth matters. and i think he is trying to reinforce a message here. again, not like i would do it but my last race i was very unsuccessful so i'm not sure i can coach anybody on how to get elected at this point in time. >> look, how to deal with isis is one of the most important issues in this presidential campaign, right? not an easy problem. obama has had mixed -- a mixed record on this. if you were a sophisticated republican, you could be prosecuting a case against this administration, again hillary clinton about how to deal with terrorism and how to deal with isis. and instead trump just goes off
8:05 pm
the deep end and says obama founded isis. i mean, it just -- it just doesn't make sense. i mean, andre, just what you said in a couple of sentences was more articulate and made more sense than what the nominee of your heart has said. i think that's what so many republicans and so many observers of this race find puzzling that even layups and even arguments and cases he could be prosecuting against the democrats, he can't do it. he goes off into these exaggerations and untruths. >> i want to play this. i alluded to it earlier. this is later on in the interview. >> i'll just keep doing the same thing i'm doing right now. at the end it either going to work or i'm going to, you know, i'm going to have a very, very nice, long vacation. >> so that's the vacation thing. he's saying these days he's not going to change as a candidate but if it doesn't go the way he expects it in the next 89 days
8:06 pm
or so, he's just going to have a nice long vacation. does that sound like he's surrendering in some way or saying i might lose here? i never heard him speak that way. >> who is the question to? >> either one. andre take it if you want. >> ryan, you're welcome to it. to me i hope he's playing good ol' southern possum, where he's trying to say don't look over here but i'm really out of this race. i really think there is an undercurrent here much like brexit. a lot of people are so lost and they are looking for some type of substantive change. would i like to see donald trump do things differently? absolutely. do i think he'd be a better candidate that hillary clinton? yes. >> i agree with you. this should be a change election. it's very hard for the same party to win three terms in a
8:07 pm
row. hillary clinton has some very serious weaknesses and vulnerabilities and i think a slightly more gifted republican candidate would be taking advantage of them and this would be a much closer race. i agree with you about brexit. i think there are similarities in what's going on in our la electorate and great britain's but trump, what can you say? he's not a sophisticated candidate. he doesn't know how to prosecute a case against his opponent in a way that wins him new converts rather than just doubling down on the 40% of the electorate that he's already got in his pocket. i will say this, thank god he is saying i'll go off and be okay and go on vacation and take a nap rather than doing what he was doing recently and talking about how if he loses it means the election was rigged. i mean, frankly to me, that's the most troubling thing that trump has said. >> i want to play something he
8:08 pm
said to hugh hewitt today about this founder of isis business. >> last night you said the president was the founder of isis. you meant he created the vacuum and lost the peace. >> no, he was the founder of isis. he was the most valuable player, i give him the most valuable player award and her, too. >> but he's not sympathetic with them, he hates them. >> let me ask you, do you not like that? >> i don't. i think i would say they last the peace, they created the vacuum into which isis came but they didn't create isis. >> i'm wondering, andre, if his campaign is supportive of letting him go off and say things like that. it almost sounded like a marketing strategy that he was, you know, testing this particular thing out. don't you like it? don't you whatever?
8:09 pm
when he's -- his supporters and he tries to make it out that it is liberals who are against him, but he as equal amounts of criticism from conservatives and from liberals. it sounds like he's testing a marketing message rather than running for president of the united states. >> don, clearly there's a message to get you through the primary and he was masterful at it. he got through some of the most skilled elected officials at our time. but lee atwater talked about broaden the tent. as republicans, you have to broaden the tent and get modern democrats, old reagan democrats and independents. i hope his message is doing that. again, i pivot to him and say he's found a better way to connect with voters than i did. i hope he's doing that because i want to see him as the next president but i want to make sure we're targeting folks we don't have in the party right now and we're bringing them in. >> the "cincinnati inquirer" is
8:10 pm
setting up offices across ohio. and the campaign has just opened their first three offices in pennsylvania. if they are going to be relying on trump's persona and message, how are they going to be prepared organizationally when things really start to heat up? it's 89 days. the fire is coming right now. >> absolutely. i mean, this race right now is looking like the greatest political science experiment in history. we're going to get a real laboratory view of what happens when one campaign spends hundreds of millions of dollars in ads and has a national ground game and one campaign basically has none of that. we're really going to get to see if these things adds voter targeting work because the trump campaign hasn't invested in it. politico reporting that the rnc and trump have a pretty significant meeting coming up in florida where some people are saying this is a meeting where the rnc is going to start to
8:11 pm
decide whether they need to start pulling the plug on the campaign and redirecting resources to the house, senate, gubernatorial races, down ballot races and essentially give up on him. i think that's the big risk right now if he doesn't turn it around is that the party just gives up on him. >> dana bash was on at 10 p.m. eastern reporting on that. her reporting is a little bit different. she's saying it would be difficult, maybe not realistic, to start taking money away from trump and put it down ballot. >> here makes a couple great points. one interesting for fodder, florida neck and neck. imagine this, she has spent tens of millions of dollars in florida on ads. he's dark. she has all these teams set up throughout the state and it's still neck and neck. he's raised $80 plus million. we know he's raising dollars. so once he puts that money to the pavement and starts creating this voter base and starts going up on tv, it shows there is still a serious race here and he
8:12 pm
has a great shot at winning the presidency. >> i've got to run. >> it's getting late, though, andre. >> maybe he's saving it all till the final push at the end. >> straight ahead, hillary clinton travels to michigan to talk about her economic plans and slams donald trump claiming his proposals would benefit the rich at the expense of middle class americans. we'll talk about that next. ♪ 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. a month after 9/11, i got a call from david and he told me he was going into the national guard. he was sent to iraq to be a gunner on a humvee.
8:13 pm
a car pulled up in the driveway and three soldiers got out, and the sound of their boots as they came up those stairs will, will stay with me the rest of my life. you have moments when you really don't want to live anymore, it's a fate that i would not wish on anybody, not anybody. when i saw donald trump attack another gold star mother, i felt such a sense of outrage. ...wife, she was standing there, she had nothing to say, she probably... i would like to tell donald trump what it feels like, the sense of emptiness, that only losing a child can bring. those people should be honored and treated with kindness for the rest of their life, and i don't think that donald trump will ever understand that. priorities usa action is responsible for the contents of this advertising.

8:15 pm
♪ oh, i'm tied to this chair! ♪ dun-dun-daaaa! i don't know that an insurance-themed comic book is what we're looking for. did i mention he can save people nearly $600? you haven't even heard my catchphrase. i'm all done with this guy. box him up. that's terrible. hillary clinton giving a speech today talking about her economic plans and blasting
8:16 pm
donald trump's polls. i want to bring in mr. ali velshi and mr. grover norquist. i'm so happy to have both of you on. so, let's see, i'm going to start with you ali. this is what you thought on hillary clinton's economic speech. >> i'm interested to hear from grover because grover and i have been discussing these things for years. grover is a big, big fan of tax reductions but the trump plan is so weird because he's got expenses going up and taxes going down. that's not something that -- >> you're reading ahead in the textbook. >> look at his expression. just keep grover's face on the screen. >> hillary clinton talks about free college, paid family leave, expand social security, raise minimum wage, invest in infrastructure. >> now, it's true that both of
8:17 pm
us have proposed to cut taxes for middle class families. he making a big promise. but his advisers have said -- his own advisers have said he may not stand by them. instead the tax cuts he doubled down on in his speech in detroit on monday offer trillions to the richest americans and corporations. and what are the differences between donald trump and me is i'm telling you what i will do, i'm laying out my plans and i will stand by them and want you to hold me accountable for delivering results. >> ali, did she offer more specifics? >> well, yes, but hillary clinton has a program for everything, right, as our friend richard quest told me earlier, she has a program for tying your shoes. donald trump doesn't tend to burden himself with specifics. he speaks in broad generalities. grover and i are going to agree on one thing, it comes down to
8:18 pm
the math. hillary clinton has a series of expensive proposals. some of them might be really interesting from a financial perspective, including her infrastructure bank, which i really like. but, for instance, free college. that's a very complicated proposal that she had to adopt because bernie sanders basically forced her to. it's very expensive. not sure if it achieves the goal you're looking for and may cause college costs to increase. but she's going to cut traise t on the rich. she's telling you how she'll pay for it. >> grover, what do you think? >> hillary clinton talks about a trillion dollars of tax increases over the next decade. she says she's going to tax the rich but she endorsed and said she would sign the family act, which is a wage tax on everybody, under pressure from sanders. she endorsed that soda tax in philadelphia, taxing soda, not taxing rich people. she has a 25% tax on guns, which
8:19 pm
does not bother rich people. she has the 7 of the 20 taxes in obama care directly hit middle class people. and she endorsed a carbon tax and her party said not right away. that's a carbon tax, an energy tax and that's middle class. when trump says the corporate rate from 35 to 15, she attacks this. every economist understands our corporate rate at 39% when you count the state taxes is above the european average of 25. we're above the british number, we're above canada. >> oh, no, don't bring canada into this. >> we're at 26%, we're at 39. how do you compete when you have that kind of damage that we do to ourselves? >> grover, i guess the bigger issue is -- >> 31 of 34 of the countries
8:20 pm
have cut their corporate rate since 2000. not the united states. and hillary is blind to the damage she's doing to the jobs she's not created. >> i just want to ask you. donald trump's best case scenario that he talked about yesterday is that his plan digs a $3 trillion hole over ten years. no economist can get to those numbers. most people are saying 9 to $14 trillion on this. his math is worse than hillary clinton's on this. >> his plan is more increasingly looking like the paul ryan plan. if trump is president, paul ryan and orrin hatch will sit down and come up with something very close to what was put forward. hillary doesn't talk about expensing, which is the most job creating thing you can do. the democrats historically, obama has a version which allows
8:21 pm
you to expense for business creation. all hillary has done is talk about more government spending, higher taxes and declared war on the sharing economy. she wants to make uber illegal because it will crack down on independent contracting. >> she calls it in her criticism the trump loophole. she said this was only a tax break for the rich. is she correct? >> no, that's nonsense. if we had grown at reagan rates instead of obama rates for the last seven years, there would be 14 million more americans working. >> grover, this line of using reagan is kind of weird. why doesn't we compare ourselves to every other country over the last seven years as opposed to something that happened decades ago? >> because we know we can grow at 4% a year and instead we're growing at 1% now. we were growing at 2%. >> 2.2 annualized. >> if we'd grown at reasonable
8:22 pm
rates which we can get to, 4%, there would be 14 million people working. >> there's nobody that's comparable to the united states. with all the different policies that all the different countries have, there's no -- >> grover, i want you to respond to this because i keep hearing this argument every day. obama is the only president in history where our growth will be less than 3%. it's at 2% now, it's at 1%. ali has been saying why are you comparing it to something that happened -- not seven years ago, decades ago. why aren't we comparing it to what's happening around the world now? >> because obama's policies are not that different from france's. what they're different from is america under reagan. there's a policy difference. reagan cut rates, reigned in spending and deregulated. >> what were the marginal taxes that reagan started with and ended with? >> 70 down to 25.
8:23 pm
>> if anybody goes from 70 down to 25, i'll grow an afro. it's going to be such a calamitous change. we're not talking about that. we're talking about 39 to 35. you brought up canada, right? 15% corporate tax rate, which you endorse, seems to be working for canada. canada's growth rate hasn't shot through the roof because of that. nobody's has. >> what trump has put forward, as have the republicans in the house and senate, so you're looking at a united republican party, full expensing for business investment, taking the corporate rate from 35 to 15, which would end inversions immediately because there would be no reason for it. >> just to the north of us they've done this year ago and it has not resulted in anywhere close to this 4% growth you're talking about. everything we try in countries similar to the united states doesn't get us to 7%. china, which fully controls its economy, they can't goose it
8:24 pm
upward. >> they've been decreasing every year. that's my point. that nobody seems to be able to control their economy in a way to get gdp growth higher in this global environment. >> i'm not comparing the united states to some other country. i'm comparing the united states to what the united states has historically been able to do. with the same labor laws. >> it's a completely different world, reagan's time till now. why are we taking everybody understands -- do you feel the attack if you takess down 4.6%? >> the corporate rating to 15 and full expensing. that's the thing that will dynamically move this forward. >> request didn't it work in canada. >> >> because canada is not looking at doing the deregulation we need to do and that can be done by a trump
8:25 pm
administration, and looking at raining and spending. so those efforts, we have a much better -- much more fluid labor situation, a lot more flexibility because we have independent contractors, which hillary wants to shut counsel. she has announced she's declaring roles on the franchise, a 12 million jobs in franchising and they want to change the rules that make franchising difficult or impossible. she's going after uber drivers with this effort to crack down on independent contractors. if you sell on she doesn't seem to understand how businesses work. a lot of businesses pay individual rates. she wants to raise taxes on small business. >> thank you, grover. i know you have to get out of here because grover has to get up early to take his kids to where are you taking them tomorrow? >> bush gardens. early. bright and early.
8:26 pm
>> thank you, i appreciate it. >> stop... clicking around and start saving at
8:27 pm
book direct... and get the lowest price online wi probably got that question 3 to 4 times a week. i'd always get asked if i was asian or moroccan or something else. so i jumped at the chance to take the dna test through ancestry. and my results ended up being african, european and asian. it just confirmed what i guess people had seen in me all my life. i do feel like ancestry helped give me a sense of identity.

8:30 pm
hillary clinton is painting donald trump's tax plan as one that would help, well, donald trump. ryan lizza is back with me and trump supporter kayleigh mcenany. the regulars are here. how are you! >> they are upping the pressure on trump to release his tax return. >> in his speech on money, he called for a new tax loophole, because it would allow him to pay less than half the current tax rate on income from many of his companies. he'd pay a lower rate than millions of middle-class families. one non-partisan expert at the tax policy center described this plan as, and i quote, a really
8:31 pm
nice deal for donald trump. of course it's hard to say how nice because he refuses to do what every other presidential candidate in decades has done and release his tax returns. >> so kayleigh, you know this is not going to go away. they're going to keep hammering him on this. this is what a new bloomberg poll shows. it shows 68% of voters say it bothers them that trump won't release his tax returns. you aren't worried this is going to start resonating with voters? >> not at all. he paid his taxes in a lawful manner, he's been under audit ten times. he's not in jail. we know the way he's paying his taxes are lawful. >> it ironic that hillary clinton is talking about lawful -- it's rather eye ron
8:32 pm
bei -- ironic to talk about transparency -- >> the first part was good and then a deflection -- >> and untrue. she did not erase any work related e-mails. the e-mails she erased were all personal. >> we have very limited time. i think the e-mail thing stands on its own. she did something that she should not have done. it was a terrible thing to do and i think that stands on its own. >> and she apologized. >> it's a bad thing she did and i don't think it needs to be repeated for every answer to every question. >> you say america has a right to know. the same bloomberg poll showsly they're not bothered at all that trump doesn't release them. is it possible this is not such a big deal. >> our country is divided almost
8:33 pm
50/50. the fact that you can ask this question and get almost 70% of the public to say they want them released or that they're bothered means you have a huge chunk of republicans there saying that this bothers them. hey, look, i take kayleigh's points about bringing up the e-mails. hillary clinton, one of her vulnerabilities in this race is transparency. and all the questions raised by the e-mail saga. and if you want to have the moral authority to prosecute that case as donald trump, well, then you've got to do what every other presidential candidate has done in the modern era and show us the tax returns. >> that's a fair point if we're talking about transparency. >> especially when there are legitimate questions about where his money comes from and whether there's any overseas income. >> i think you bring up a very good point. if she's going to demand e-mails, she needs to be transparent as well. and even -- >> just politically if he
8:34 pm
wants -- just politically to make that case against her, this would help him. obviously the campaign has decided it is better for them -- they have more to lose by releasing those tax returns because there's something in them that they don't want us to see than there is to just gut through this and have us criticize them for the next three months. >> that's certainly what it looks like. but if we're going to talk about transparency and fairness, let's compare apples to apples. hillary clinton has released 38 years of tax returns. tax returns have been something that presidential candidates -- >> she's releasing more tomorrow. >> and cain is releasing ten years worth. this has been something presidential candidates have been releasing for the last 40 years. so of course almost 70% of americans think that this is something that presidential candidates should release because that is something that they believe they should know about in terms of what was their tax rate? i'm not saying he did anything illegal, but when you're a
8:35 pm
multi-billionaire and you are paying zero taxes, i think that's something that's going to rub the american people the wrong way. >> so every major party presidential candidate sense 1976 has released their taxes to maria's point of what about his tax rate? what if he has paid zero tax rate? most people will tell you as a private citizen, they would say, hey, how do you do it, i would love to do that. does that fly when you're running for president of the united states? >> i don't think that matters. look, if you asked me do you think you should see hillary clinton's health records? i would say, yes, of course i do. we're voyeuristic, we want to know stuff. but in terms of actually being an issue that there's intensity on, i don't really think there's a big problem with donald trump not showing us. and if he didn't pay anything, i think he just says, hey, look, i'm smart, of course i didn't pay, i'm a business guy, that's
8:36 pm
why you need to elect me. >> the american public disagrees with you. don lemon just showed us a 68% poll that 68% of americans are bothered by this. >> i also want to know if my president, if someone i'm going to vote for is going to be in office for eight years, i want to know if they're healthy. i want to see their health records. >> if donald trump was a wage earner and just made $100,000 and just took a standard deduction, i wouldn't care about his taxes too much. but the fact that he is a billionaire with extremely complicated taxes and hundreds of different companies and we have no visibility into how he has been making his money, i think that's a big deal. i think we need to understand that. >> i'm sure you do. i think most reporters would love -- it's probably a treasure trove to go through. >> and 70% of the american people as well. >> it's not a voyeuristic thing. don't you want to know if he has foreign income coming in? >> i assume that donald trump
8:37 pm
has done all sorts of questionable things. to me it's kind of baked into the cake. >> maybe he hasn't. one way or the other we want to know the facts. >> i think it's something the american people deserve to know. >> let's make it a law then. >> the other thing that we will see from there are his foreign business dealings. there are a lot of questions about what his relationship is with people in russia, with russian businessmen, with putin himself. if he wants to put that to rest, this could be a way to do that. in addition to that, his charitable contributions, which we know he has lied about time and time again. >> to matt's point, the question asked is would you like to see the tax returns. the question wasn't asked is this going to influence your vote. this isn't going to influence people's votes. people are concerned about the economy and isis. at the end of the day, donald trump's plans are better than hillary clinton. >> i have to go. "the hunt is on," the gripping

8:41 pm
cnn's "the hunt" with john
8:42 pm
walsh opens a new season on sunday and the program has a lot to brag about. with me is john walsh. you have another success story on "the hunt." the police captured christopher ponts. how did they finally catch him? >> first, it's great to see you. it's a great capture because they caught him in spain. the spanish police saw him acting very strangely at a bus stop. the viewers have redirected the search by the marshals in south america in mexico, the ponce family has a latin background and little in florida, to spain. it's a terribly sad story about how an entitled, spoiled kid
8:43 pm
with ten traffic history lagsvi dui, reckless, he goes out one night drunk, alcohol level twice over the legal limit and kills william angels, a straight a student who had ten offers and ten scholarships to go to college and crucially wounds in the car that he hit an afghan veteran, an english guy, an english former soldier. so ponce gets house confinement and he gets an ankle bracelet. i don't know how that ever happened because once the test came back, it showed he had double the legal limit. he cooked up a scheme that his back was killing him and he could take the ankle bracelet off to see the doctor. it comes nine months later, comes to trial and he takes off. so nobody sees him and this was a case that was very personal for me, picked it for "the hunt"
8:44 pm
and thank god for interpol and the u.s. marshall, he was caught this week. >> and two joggers were just killed just days apart, though there is nothing that points to a connection between the two. investigators are saying they're not ruling anything out. how should they be approaching this investigation? >> first of all, the m.o.s. initially they're saying could it be the same guy? the m.o. is kind of alike, young, single women jogging at a certain time of day, both brutally murdered, looks like both of them fought back and the girl in massachusetts, the perpetrator burned her hands and her face because he probably figured out that she fought him so hard that there may be dna under those nails. i don't think they're related personally, but i think they should be telling the world that there's two or one guy out there that have crossed that line, grabbing girls that are out
8:45 pm
the there jogging. i don't know why massachusetts has been talking about whether they have dna or not. i would have the two agencies talk together and say do we have the same dna? then we're looking for a serial killer. if it's two different guys, copycat or whatever, we need the public. >> the father of one of the victims set up a fund to boost reward money. how will this help? will it help? >> is it will help. with "the hunt" we never offered rewards unless once in a while we threw in an award that the family did. they're rounding out close to $200,000. it will bring people for it if they know they can collect that money without retribution or
8:46 pm
having to be involved with the cops. people don't want to call the cops. we figured out over the years give them a way to drop that dime on that person without having a d.a. come to their house and say you're going to be in trial because you turned in crazy uncle louis and then uncle louis gets out on bond and kills you. make the call, they'll make sure you get that money and you'll never be involved in the trial, there won't be any retribution. so rewards work sometimes. this is $200 for somebody to say i think i know something about the murder. make the call. >> let's take people inside of what you're doing this week. this week on "the hunt," you go inside the texas slave trade when a texas bar doubles as an brothel for underage girls. >> the owner was a woman. she went by the nickname tensha. that's what everybody knew her
