tv   CNN Newsroom With Poppy Harlow  CNN  August 14, 2016 4:00pm-5:01pm PDT

4:00 pm
this november. rosa flores, cnn, mexico's southwest state. >> this was rosa flores reporting. cnn did reach out to trump's campaign for a comment specifically regarding the potential impact of ending money transfers and their effects on undocumented workers. his campaign did not address the money transfers but maintained their position on building a wall and said that is the right solution. this is cnn breaking news. >> top of the hour, i'm poppy harlow in new york. we begin tonight with breaking news in wisconsin. there are extra police on the streets in milwaukee tonight. the national guard has been activated and we're told it will be deployed if necessary, this after a night of protests and violence over a police shooting of an african-american man. authorities say the man had a gun in his hand and refused to drop it when officers called on him to. still, much anger in milwaukee where it all happened.
4:01 pm
overnight protesters torched six business, damaged seven police vehicles, four officers were injured and hospitalized. police arrested 17 people. and during a news briefing a few hours ago milwaukee's mayor tried to calm nerves and said there is clear evidence from video he says he has seen the police body camera video, that the suspect was armed. >> i have, however, seen the still photo extracted from that. and that still photo demonstrates, without question, that he had a gun in his hand. and i want our community to know that. that he had a gun in his hand. >> a short time ago the sheriff of milwaukee, county sheriff david clark spoke about the suspect an his lengthy police record. >> he's got a bunch of drug
4:02 pm
arrests here, robbery, use of force, no prosecution. i don't know why. i'm not going to blast the prosecutor's office at this point, however, somebody ought to go back and see why. there has to be a reason. that's called accountability. if the d.a. says, hey, we tried. the victims bailed on us, i get that. but if this is one of these second chance deferred, those are the things that i think are having a detrimental effect to this community. >> our ana cabrera is live for us tonight in milwaukee. as night falls there, the urge has been from the mayor, from the head of police for calm, no big protests and lighting businesses on fire like last night. is that what you're seeing play out? are people staying home? >> reporter: well, still people are gathering. however, it has been peaceful so
4:03 pm
far, poppy. but people are coming to take a look at the destruction that was left behind after that night of violence and unrest in a community that says it's felt oppressed for years. as we walk and talk, we can see the burned-out cars and a burned-out gas stays. this is one of six buildings destroyed last night, including a bank, auto parts store, beauty supply store. police are on scene. they want to keep thins peaceful here. but to give you a better idea of why yesterday's shooting ignited so much emotion, i want to introduce you to a gentleman who has lived here since the 1970s. this is anthony balas. thanks for sharing with us here today. let me ask you when you look at what happened in your community last night, what's your reaction? >> my initial reaction was to come down last night to see exactly how bad it was. you know, i was watching television. but i only went so far.
4:04 pm
seemed like a lot of commotion. people didn't really know what to do or what they wanted to do. >> reporter: how does something like this happen? why do you think it happened? >> well, it's a lot of why it happened. i could tell you why it shouldn't have happened if you let me lead off that way. the sherman hill park neighborhood has been one of the neighborhoods in milwaukee that culturally us as black people, we work very hard to get these houses, to raise families, to possibly send someone to college. and for that to have no regard in what happened last night, i personally feel that it's not right to come and tear someone's legacy down. and i'm not going to call what happened a whim or a silly notion. i believe we got to this point where it's common -- excuse me, we've been told that times like this would come. >> reporter: and i want to touch on that. because we've been also talking with others here who say that
4:05 pm
they want voices heard. they wanted to get attention of what's happened here, and this is how they made a statement. what is happening in this communi community? are people oppressed or treated unfairly? >> that would be consistent with the feeling all across america in cities not only just milwaukee. forgive me. that again you would have to know that something like this would event wally happen or come to pass. in my opinion, there are so many people that are wrong. so many -- >> reporter: so many people are wrong. do you feel like there's a disconnect? >> there's an absolute disconnect. but if i can speak to something that i think is more pressing is the gun laws that have been established by republican governors not only in the state of wisconsin but many other states. we want -- hopefully they can look at this one as many other situations and see what we're actually getting from right to
4:06 pm
carry. some of us have figured out that when it comes to right to carry for our community, they get a two for one because if someone had stolen a gun from waukesha, this guy had the gun because he's being preached to that you have a right to defend yourself. if he has a right to defend himself, how did he get the gun? it didn't work. yet it ended up in our community. we feel that that law is passed without any regard for us because you kind of get a two for one. those down here in this neighborhood they count those on top specific party count on someone killing their neighbor and then they go to the prison system, which is a lot private owned. >> that's what you see happening, kind of a cyclical thing here. anto antony, thank you for sharing your thoughts. it was nice to talk with you. i have to say, poppy, we are seeing some interesting dynamics play out here. in fact, just moments ago prior to our live shot, there were a
4:07 pm
group of some of the community members speaking with these police officers behind me having a very frank conversation with them. and we've heard from others that that is part of the root of the problem that those communication lines haven't been there in the past in the ways they should. perhaps that's a small sign of progress. we'll have to see. >> it echoes from what we heard from the state senator. i do want to bring you some of that interview that i did earlier with state senator lena taylor. i asked her what is her message to the people there in milwaukee thinking of taking to the streets again tonight. >> actually, i just left the community and community organized group of people who have just, you know, grassroots organized and said we need to go out and help clean up our community. we need to go out and not only clean up the property damage, but we need to go out and help clean up the damage that has come to exist for the people who
4:08 pm
have been damaged in the community. and for that healing to happen. and that has to happen when people know that someone loves, someone cares, someone hears their concern. you know, i believe all our people need is some love and faith, to be very honest with you. i can't mandate love and faith, but we can do the things that help them to know that by giving them access to opportunity. and that has to start now. >> state senator lena taylor there of wisconsin. also ahead this hour, we'll take you live to southern louisiana for those deadly floodwaters continue to rise. this car is traveling over 200 miles per hour. to win, every millisecond matters. both on the track and thousands of miles away. with the help of at&t, red bull racing can share critical information about every inch of the car from virtually anywhere. brakes are getting warm. confirmed, daniel you need to cool your brakes. understood, brake bias back 2 clicks. giving them the agility to have speed & precision.
4:09 pm
because no one knows & like at&t. schwarzkopf presents color ultîme. a model needs vibrant hair color to light up the runway. its color blend formula locks pigment in

4:11 pm
it is the worst possible news today of the people of southern louisiana. they were nervously watching as those floodwaters continue to rise. it is just expected to get worse there. more rain is on the way. that means little relief in the coming days. already three people have died from this flooding. 7,000 have been rescued. listen. >> about 3:00 this morning, 4:00, the neighbor started knocking and i started hearing all kind of noise. i walked outside and saw water coming up the street. i got a pond in the back of my house, the pond had actually went down. all the rain was up and the rain was coming and the pond went down, it dropped about four feet. i thought everything was fine. i was cook and watching movies last night. >> on the phone with me is photo
4:12 pm
journalist. you've covered a number of rescues after hurricane katrina, rita, after this. let's pull up some pictures. i believe we have images of families being loaded into these army trucks. these are some of the 7,000 people who have been rescued. where are they being taken? how are they being taken care of? >> poppy, this area of sherwood forest in east baton rouge, it's about 12 miles from downtown baton rouge. the people have been out of their homes that were stranded. it wasn't a real -- they were organized and put on these national guard trucks and they're being taken to different shelters, at least for the evening. the waters still have not receded here. so the waters are still significantly high, which means these residents can't get back in their homes. hopefully at some point the waters will recede, but i think there is -- they're still
4:13 pm
expecting more rain in the area. i think the big problem now is that the soil's so saturated there's nowhere for this water to go anymore. and so as the dusk comes here, what's happened now is the boats have pretty much pulled out. there's still a few more flat bottom boats and air boats here, but they're mostly taking the last remaining residents that are stranded in these neighborhoods on city charter buses. they're bringing in buses to bring the people out. so the national guard has pretty much left the area. i think they're just patrolling for looting right now, but i think it will be some time before these residents get back in their homes. the pictures are absolute absolutely remarkable. i mean, we're watching elderly people being walked through streets that have been turned into rivers. we saw car after car just sinking into the river there. this convertible, woman and her dog were pulled out through the
4:14 pm
roof there. it's remarkable. let's continue to play this and also now i do want to bring in -- thank you, mark. i do want to bring in on the phone with me colonel ed bush from the louisiana national guard. as we look at these images and we look at what volunteers, your national guard members are doing to try to help people, how many national guard men and women do you have there near baton rouge helping in all of this? >> well, what you're looking at and what you're describing is a statewide effort. we've got roughly 1700 personal that are currently on duty with the national guard. the last 48 hours they've saved 7,000 people. but like the host is talking about, this is a team effort. he's got volunteers. you have the various other response. you have the shelters that are all standing up because the fact is the water is moving. it's a real changing situation. i did want to clarify one thing.
4:15 pm
the national guard did not have any type of looting patrol mission. we haven't gotten to that kind of work at all. we're completely and 100% in search and rescue mode. >> understood. let me ask you this as we look at these families being taken out of their homes. they don't know when they're get back. what they will even have left for them once they do get back in their homes after the flooding recedes. what do they need most now in the flood zone? do you have all the resources you have on the ground at this point? >> it's a huge joint effort. you're talking about a red cross, dhs, there are so many state agencies involved here that all come into play. that doesn't even count for the organizations that step up and provide help. do we have everything, i'm sure they don't. i'm sure they wish they had a lot more. but in the meantime, the community's doing what the community does best. >> is there anything that people at home, you know, watching can
4:16 pm
do to help you guys? >> well, i heard our governor this morning. i think he hit the nail on the head. first and foremost, people need to be aware to their left and to their right and be a good neighbor. if you know someone down the street or you know a neighbor that needs something, you need to help them. secondly volunteers. most definitely, the food stations, that they can't have enough people to lend a helping hand. so volunteers coming out of the woodwork would be outstanding. everything from people volunteers just to help. take care of each other, then get volunteers and help those hardest hit. >> absolutely. thank you so much to you and all the members of the national guard working around the clock, no question, to help these folks. thank you so much, colonel ed bush. coming up next, switching to politics, donald trump's campaign manager today one on one with jake tapper. >> we're convinced that, contrary to the stories of "the new york times," which are not correct and contrary to the lead-in to this interview of
4:17 pm
trump unplugged, that trump is very plugged in. he's very connected. and you're seeing crowds attending these appearances that are end of october's numbers. >> you'll see it only here. tapper and manafort, one on one, the entire interview next. it reaches farther than ever.e from the powder to the pavement, skylines, coastlines, out in the country, deep in the city. we got you covered. 311 million americans and counting. and we won't stop. come see why t-mobile is the #1 recommended wireless company in america. 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.
4:18 pm
4:19 pm
4:20 pm
welcome back. donald trump is stepping up his attacks on the media taking to twitter today to claim that, if it weren't for, quote, the disgusting and corrupt media, he would be beating his rival hillary clinton by 20%. this comes following the newest "new york times" report which describes the trump campaign as fractured. the article called "inside the failing mission to tame trump's tongue" quotes 20 mostly
4:21 pm
anonymous sources kloclose to t campaign that says trump is exhausted, frustrated and still bewildered by the fine point of the political process and why his incendiary approaches seem to be sputtering. his campaign manager addressed trump's war with the media and the controversial decision not to release his tax returns in an interview with jake tapper this morning on "state of the union." >> joining me from new york is campaign chairman paul manafort. thanks so much for joining us today. >> thank you, jake. >> republicans in washington and throughout the country, as i don't need to tell you, are starting to get very worried and mr. trump doesn't have the discipline to stay on message and win the election. you see the polling showing him behind in battleground states. i know he did an economic speech monday and he's going to do a speech on terrorism tomorrow, but in between, of course, he does seem to go off message. last night he was talking about monica lewinsky's blue dress. what do you say to republicans when they call you up and say, please get mr. trump to focus?
4:22 pm
>> well, first of all, the piece you just did is an example of why, when he said last night that besides running against hillary clinton, he's running against the media. the point he was making is this week was a substantive week. he talked about an economic plan and hillary clinton presented her economic plan. they were two different plans. our plan laid out how he was going to cut taxes, lower the rate for small businesses, how that would create more jobs, talked about trade policy and energy policy in making america energy independent. and she laid out a program, which is frankly, what this administration is doing, raising taxes, raising spending, increasing the national debt. there was a debate that could have been had there. instead the media chose to take the clinton campaign narrative and go on an attack on donald trump. donald trump in the course of this week was very substantive when he visited a number of battleground states. you didn't cover it. but the local media is covering it.
4:23 pm
from our standpoint we're pleased that we're getting the coverage we need in the battleground states where this campaign is going to be fought. additionally, we think that contrary to your report and contrary to "the new york times" and the story, the campaign is moving forward and is very strong. we've raised over $132 million in the last two months. we are organized in all 50 states, all 50 states. we've been in the battleground states every day this month including pennsylvania, ohio and florida multiple times this month. and we're starting to get traction in those states. we're convinced that, contrary to the stories of the "new york times," which are not correct and contrary to the lead-in to this interview of trump unplugged, that trump is very plugged in. he's very connected, and you're seeing crowds attending these appearances that are end of october's numbers. they're not august numbers. in august, look at the crowds hillary clinton is getting. she's appearing before 30, 40,
4:24 pm
100 people. he's appearing before 10, 15, 20,000 people. that shows you the campaign's working contrary to what the media is saying. >> one of the reasons that mr. trump's message about the economy on monday was sidetracked was, of course, when he raised the possibility of second amendment people taking matters into their own hands to stop clinton from appointing pro gun control judges. that's a controversy that you reject. trump said that no one thought he was suggesting violence. but i want you to take a listen here to mr. trump. >> nobody in that room thought anything other than what you just said. there can be no other interpretation. even reporters have told me, i mean, give mow a break. >> but here's the thing. it wasn't just reporters. it was republicans, it was people in washington, d.c., who want mr. trump to win. then if you look at the speech when he made those remarks, the man with the white beard who was sitting right behind mr. trump at that event, cnn tracked him
4:25 pm
down. take a listen. >> i was just absolutely taken aghast. down here in the south, we don't curse in front of women. we don't drink liquor in front of the preacher, and we don't make jokes like that in public. we would have taken mr. trump to the shed and said, don't say things like that because people will misconstrue. >> so that's darrell vickers. that's a man who will vote for trump. he interpreted it the same way as a lot of other people did. does mr. trump need to listen to what mr. vickers said, which is be more careful with your words? >> look, i'm not going to say he didn't interpret that or not. the point is most people did not interpret it that way. it was not at all meant to be a threat. but the point again is you could have covered what he was saying or you could try and take an aside and take the clinton narrative and play it out.
4:26 pm
and you chose to do that instead. i mean, there's plenty of news to cover this week, but i haven't seen covered. you had information coming out about pay for play out of e-mails of hillary clinton's that weren't turned over, by the way, to the justice department for her investigation. you know, that's a major news story. you had the nato base in turkey being attacked by terrorists. you had a number of things that weren't appropriate to this campaign. we're part of what mr. trump was talking about. you had economic numbers coming out this week that showed that productivity is down, housing ownership is down, unemployment is at over 102 million. these were things that you could have covered this week. but you took a narrative that mr. trump said he didn't mean and play it for two days. >> first of all, as a factual matter, on monday, my show covered mr. trump's speech. we did. we covered mr. trump's speech. and we did cover those hillary
4:27 pm
clinton e-mails. so when these things just because you say them, they're not true. i mean, we have been covering this substance. we have been covering the -- to hillary clinton. >> jake, we've been talking about these messages all week. you covered this all day and you talked about this aside for three days. come on, there's not a comparison here. you had a chance to have a serious discussion about the two economic programs that were presented this past week, this very week by the two candidates. there was no discussion, no comparison. >> and mr. trump bears no responsibility for his campaign being off message? his comments about the second amendment had nothing to do with why we weren't covering the economic message? >> his point about the second amendment was that people who cared about the second amendment should be concern about hillary clinton's candidacy and that those who are concerned probably would take up the cause. now, there's something you can interpret it, which i certainly
4:28 pm
didn't, as a threat, but if you want to go back and look at threats, then you ought to go back to 2008 when hillary clinton was running against obama and in may of that year when she was clearly the loser and ask why are you still in the race, remember, bobby kennedy was assassinated in 1968. that's a much more direct reference laid at the feet of hillary clinton. >> i did cover that in 2008. i did cover it in 2008. and hillary clinton, you know what she did? she issued an apology. i'm sorry my comments were meant that way -- were construed that way. that's not how i meant it. yesterday he told an interviewer that he would soon release his tax returns. hillary clinton and tim kaine have already released their tax returns. that puts them at odd with mr. trump. in 2012 he pushed mitt romney to release his taxes. take a listen. >> if you don't see the tax returns, you almost think there's something wrong. what's wrong?
4:29 pm
>> there's mr. trump saying you need to see the tax returns, what's wrong. you could put this whole issue to rest if you release mr. trump's 2008 returns. that's a year no longer under audit according to mr. trump's lawyers. but mr. trump said in 2012, as he said, what's wrong in these tax returns? what do you not want the public to see? >> there's nothing he doesn't want the public to see. mr. trump's position is clear from the beginning. he's under audit. when he's out of audit, he'll release his returns. in mrs. clinton's returns, you saw a lot of income coming from donors to the clinton foundation and the people who benefit from her state department term as well. i haven't seen any stories on that yet. >> mr. trump unveiled his economic plan this week. i want to ask you about that, if we can. >> sure. >> he proposed tax cutses with the monetary return going to top
4:30 pm
1%. >> it reduces or eliminates most of the deductions and loopholes available to special interests and to the very rich. nrd, it's going to cost me a fortune. >> now listen to what mr. trump had to say to the "today" show in march. >> you believe in raising taxes on the wealthy? >> i do. i do. including myself. i do. >> does seeing that the plan he unveiled monday walks away from what he said in march and last september when he talked about how it was going to really hurt the very wealthy? >> i'm sorry. i couldn't hear the last sentence. >> my question is his tax plan as unveiled monday seems to walk away from what he said in september and march when he said the very wealthy would pay much more. >> not at all. he lays out three rates.
4:31 pm
12, 25 and 35%. in those rates, what he's talking about is increasing and taking away a number of deductions that are used by the very wealthy. i'm sorry, it's 33%. taking away deductions that are only used by the wealthy. so that -- but more importantly, he removes from the tax rolls a significant percentage of the american people. taxes will go down. there will be more spending income for middle income working families and as a result of this tax plan and all of the components of the tax plan, the trade elements, the investment elements, you're going to have a situation where jobs are going to come back to america, manufacturing is going to benefit again, the coal industrial will benefit again, oil and gas industry, which means more jobs, good paying
4:32 pm
jobs and as a result the economy will grow again unlike what it has under obama where you've had the slowest growth since world war ii. and the clinton plan that was announce pd this week would simply be more of the same which means the kind of growth you experienced for the last eight years you'll experience for four more years. the trump plan similar to the reagan began and the kennedy plan in 1961 would spur growth, create jobs and lower taxes for most of americans. >> all right. our jake tapper with paul manafort there. donald trump is set for what his campaign is billing a major policy speech on isis and terrorism. he'll deliver it tomorrow in ohio. up until now trump has declined to offer many specifics on what he would do to wipe out the terror group. will those specifics come tomorrow? they may. we'll discuss with the head of the house intelligence committee along with retired major general spider marks. they tell me what they want to hear from the candidate, next.
4:33 pm
4:34 pm
dale. dale! oh, hey, rob. what's with the minivan? it's not mine. i don't -- dale, honey, is your tummy still hurting, or are you feeling better to ride in the front seat? oh! is this one of your motorcycling friends? hey, chin up there, dale. lots of bikers also drive cars. in fact, you can save big if you bundle them both with progressive. i'd like that. great. whoo. you've got soft hands. he uses my moisturizer. see you, dale. bye, rob.
4:35 pm
4:36 pm
donald trump set to give a major policy speech tomorrow in ohio, and we could for the first time hear how he plans to defeat isis if he is elected president. up until now he's offered few specifics on how he would wipe out the terror group other than saying he will and that he is the only one who can. >> we have to knock out isis. we have to knock the hell out of them. we have to get rid of it, then we have to come back here and rebuild our country, which is falling apart. >> let's talk about all of this with cnn national security commentator former head of the house intelligence committee mike rogers is with me. also with me now is former major general spider marks. thank you guys for being here very much. let me begin with you, congressman. if you were writing this speech for the republican candidate tomorrow, what would you say? >> well, my advice to the
4:37 pm
campaign would be to talk about the three phases that's going to have to happen to really come up with a plan to defeat isis. you have a long-term plan that fosters support for people like al sisi in egypt who want reformation in the islamic faith. to try to turn that around, to try to push back on the jihadist portion in that inflaming that's happening around the world. he made a very powerful speech back in november. we kind of missed the boat on that in the administration by not supporting him and his efforts. that would be part of it. secondly, you want to have two phases of an operation to cause some disruptive activity to isis' ability to recruit, train and finance and propagandize, that would mean a coalition force that would have to get them out of their capital city raqqah. but that second phase. who stays? it can't be us, it shouldn't be us, the united states. who stays there and how does that look? and how do you go out and target terrorists on an individual basis from there? i would address those two things
4:38 pm
and probably that third part, that bigger reformation part to later on. but that's the advice i'd give to the campaign. >> the question then becomes will we hear any specifics like that from donald trump? because we just haven't up until now. he said back in may of last year he said that he has a plan but he's not going to tell the public what the plan is. and his supporters like that. i mean, i've had trump supporters tell me why should he put his plan, his strategy out there. as a general who has fought and led our forces in iraq, is that wise not to put specifics out there? >> well, if he wants to be elected president, he has to come forward and describe what he thinks the end state needs to look like. the congressman is spot on. there has to be a description, a word picture of what the end state looks like regionally. then you have to work back from that. everything congressman rogers said makes perfect sense. but i've not heard anything from this candidate that indicates
4:39 pm
that he is prepared to go and describe this very wholesome solution to this problem. it's more than the physical defeat of isis. in my view, that's step one. they have to be crushed. it has to be painful and very clear that cannot be done unless there's a coalition. that has to come forward and from there you can then march down the path and you can create a solution, but bear in mind this is intergenerational. this is not going to take place over the course of a very short amount of time or this gentleman's presidency. >> congressman, you're a republican, the head of the man running for the republican ticket right now to be president has spent the past week pointing the finger at president obama and hillary clinton saying the founder and co-founder of isis, and then a few days later saying we all got it wrong and he was actually being sarcastic. then his running mate mike pence goes on fox this morning with chris wallace and says, no, no,
4:40 pm
no, he was being serious. that's what they've been talking about rather than any of this strategy. how much does that concern you? does that concern you? >> i think it's very clumsy. americans are looking for someone who has not been in politics, who doesn't talk pretty, who doesn't talk off the teleprompter, who isn't poll tested. >> right. >> that's why you're seeing the support for donald trump. with that comes, i think, this clumsy speech, especially when it comes to national security. so again, i hope that they have sat the candidate down looking at some pretty serious proposals because i don't think we've gotten it right thus far and i think there's things we can do differently. i'm hoping he lays that out. if he lays the case out without blame, that's good for trump in his national security posture. >> you've been very public talking about how you think president obama's administration has failed in this effort to defeat isis. however, you've recently gotten behind hillary clinton. you say she's a much more bullish and strategic approach to defeating isis, but what about those who point to her and
4:41 pm
say, she was part of the administration as secretary of state, part of the strategy in iraq and syria, part of a strategy that their critics say failed. >> there is a difference with the distinction here. and the secretary -- secretary clinton must come forward and describe that. although she has the embrace of the current administration, although she has the connection to the current administration, in this particular instance, she has to increasingly distance herself from what we see today, vis-a-vis what we saw when she was a secretary of state. >> well, she did support more hawkish policies. she did call for a no-fly zone. the president didn't take that advice. >> upony, i agree. she needs to be very forceful and say, look, i'm not complete connected to this president in terms of policies. was i a loyal soldier as secretary of state?
4:42 pm
of course, she was. but when you open the door and leave a cabinet meeting, you're on board or you're not part of the team. she needs to come forward and be very, very strong about her positions and her bullish positions internationally. >> it's a delicate dance to dance, a fine line to walk, hugging the obama administration, and then separating herself on foreign policy. but congressman to you, vice president joe biden set to be in pennsylvania tomorrow. we've gotten some of what he will say and i'm paraphrasing here, that donald trump is the least prepared candidate ever to run for the presidency on national security. what's your response to that? >> well, you know, again, there's two ways to look at it. obviously, he's had no experience in national security, but the general knows this as well as i do. you use your national security infrastructure to come around you and make these recommendations. what would concern me is that hillary clinton has a track record here that isn't very good. so she didn't listen to the intelligence and to the military commanders on her russia
4:43 pm
position. they didn't listen in egypt. they didn't listen in syria. they didn't listen in isis in western and eastern iraq, excuse me, western iraq, eastern syria. there's a whole host of problems where they have clearly dismissed military and intelligence who do have lots of experience. so i think this is an opportunity for the trump campaign to come out and lay out some clear paths here this week. i hope they can do that and stick to it. and again, i'm concerned a little bit that because she has experience everyone assumes it's the right experience. when i look back at her track record it really wasn't very good. i know that the language of the president, but that early withdraw from iraq caused serious problems and it did cause this group that we now know as isis to go to eastern syria and develop what we know today. >> to be fair, and you well know this, but for our viewers, to be fair, that agreement came between maliki and president
4:44 pm
bush before president obama. >> right. but it was not the unilateral withdrawal. the status of forces equipment was all about trying to keep a contingency force there for continual training. >> only until 2011. >> poppy, that's not true. all of it fell apart. the president said the status of forces agreement isn't what i want so i'm pulling out. i was there at the time. i thought that was a terrible decision. by the way, so did the military and the intelligence services say this is going to cause huge problems. >> i got to get a break in there. thank you very much major general spider marks, thank you congressman rogers. we'll talk about a new episode of your series "declassified" tonight on cnn. that's next. i have asthma... of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid.
4:45 pm
breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at inside everyone is an incredible cook, someone who can cook an amazing meal any night of the week.
