♪ a huge shake-up. another big shake-up for the donald trump campaign, two new key players elevated to the top. who are they and how will it affect trump's focus on policy? details of the fbi's investigation into hillary clinton's e-mails now in the hands of congress. clinton camp pushing back asking that the entirety of the poll be put to the public. will they get their wish? and simone biles leaving rio the way she started at the top. another gold for the american phenom.
1:01 am
another with the performance live from rio. good morning, everyone. it is 4:00 a.m. you're up early, or up late. i'm christine romans. >> good morning to you. 4:00 a.m. in the east. breaking overnight, donald trump now naming executive steve bannan as chief executive and paul manafort does remain as achairman but his power is likely diminished with these new moves. vanik is a critic of house speaker paul ryan and house jort leader mitch mcconnell. overnight, donald trump was in wisconsin making a pitch to african-american voters with his law and order message. he gave his speech near milwaukee, but not in milwaukee, just days after the violent protests there, sparked by shootings of an armed african-american suspect. trump made his appeal in a room
1:02 am
with very few of them present and called hillary clinton anti-cop, listen. >> the war on our police must end. and it must end now. those peddling the narrative of cops as a racist force in our society, a narrative supported with a nod by my opponent, shared directly in the responsible for the unrest in milwaukee and many other places within our country. every time we rush to judgment with false facts and narratives, whether in ferguson or in baltimore. and foment further unrest, we do a direct disservice to poor african-american represents who are hurt by the high crime in their community. >> donald trump there making the case in wisconsin. more on trump's big speech last night from jason carroll.
1:03 am
>> reporter: christine and george, make no mistake, this was a law and order speech here in west bend. but it was also an attempt to reach out to the african-american community. donald trump when he took the stage here, he talked about the violence plaguing innercities. he said the vial silence an assault on all citizens trying to live in peace. he talked about what we saw in ferguson or milwaukee or baltimore, he talked about citizens being african-americans and said that hillary clinton shares the responsibility for the unrest we see in american sfeers what he called fostering an anti-police narrative. and he said also for taking african-american votes for granted. >> we reject the big theory of hillary clinton which panders to and talks down to communities of color and sees them only as votes. that's all they care about. not as individual human beings
1:04 am
worthy of a better future. they have taken advantage. she and her party officials, there has been tremendous suffering because of what they have brought. the african-american community has been taken for granted for decades by the democratic party and look how they're doing. it's time to break with the failures of the past. i want to offer americans a new and much better future. >> reporter: donald trump referenced the african-american community several times during his speech which was delivered here in washington county, which is a county that is overwhelmingly white. but having said that, the crowd really seemed to respond to donald trump's words. they even responded even more when he criticized hillary clinton say issing that she does not have the, quote, physical or mental stamina of the job. he also pointed to her slogan i'm with her. he went on to tell the crowd,
1:05 am
i'm with you, the american people. christine, george. >> jason carroll, in wisconsin, thanks. starting today, donald trump gets his first classified national security briefing. the briefing prepared by the director of national intelligence. that's the first time the republican nominees gets access to classified intelligence. the trump campaign said it will roll out its first general election ads this weekend. targeting five battleground states. trump is falling farther behind in the latest polls. congressional staffers now review secret notes turned over by the fbi of the clinton server. in a closed case in the name of transparency. the committee has yet to review the material in a special room, material that cannot be publicly
1:06 am
disclosed without fbi permission. the clinton campaign said it would rather have the material released to the public than selectively released to the republicans. there is a lot to talk about this morning. >> sure is. >> a political shake-up, a lot of changes let's bring in our political producer kristin holmes covering the trump campaign. kristin, let's talk about the shake-up in the trump campaign, this is big news. >> yes, this is the second big shake-up in essentially the last two months. it was just barely two months ago that we were sitting here talking about how donald trump had his longtime campaign manager leave the campaign and putting paul manafort in charge. now, kelly ann conley, a republican pollster, she will serve as campaign manager.
1:07 am
and keith bannan will be chief executive. as a big surprise as it may be, it's not completely out of this realm. we've been reporting that republicans have been biting their nails as they've seen head line after headline, negatively, with the poll numbers dropping. and with trump's parooll number falling in battleground states. so this is another shake-up. we'll see what happens, kelly ann conley and steve bannan are longtime associates of donald trump. kelly ann is also an adviser. we'll see how the election moves forward. just to note here, a republican source told me this morning, look, this is a step in the right direction. but ultimately as we've seen, it comes down to the candidate. >> does this mean a diminished
1:08 am
role for paul manafort. we know he's been in the news this week because of, you know, reports about payments he may have taken from pro-russian/ukrainian officials or presidential candidates. what do we know about paul manafort? >> we reached out to the campaign about that. we do know this is likely a form of demotion. as we mentioned a few months ago, corey lewandowski stepping down as campaign manager. now, we have two new senior advisers stepping into that role. so is this will likely be a demotion for paul manafort. but we'll have to wait and see how that plays out. >> i want to listen to donald trump just the other day reaching out to african-american voters. i believe we have a sound bite of that. and we can talk about it on the other side. let's listen. >> i'm running to listen to your
1:09 am
voice. to hear the cries for help from so many people in our nation. the quiet voices in our society, not the loudest demonstrators need to have their demands heard. >> kristen, that was donald trump the other night, just last night. let's take a look at donald trump's poll numbers with african-americans if we had that. donald trump not doing very well when it comes to african-american voters. >> 1%. >> i say not very well, 1%. so does this pivot for donald trump at this point in his campaign, does it work? mind you in a room with very few african-american voters present. >> well, exactly. one of my favorite words that is used during the donald trump campaign is "pivot."
1:10 am
i feel like we've failed and this is the pivot. i think this is where the donald trump campaign needs to be reaching out to african-americans and minorities in general, as well as women. but is this a step in that direction. but as you said, this is a room mostly filled were white individuals. we have to see if this method continues. if he can stay on with this, reach out to minorities. there have been a lot of minority groups that have issued statements against donald trump. so this is what donald trump needs to be doing, he needs to be reaching out to these groups. >> i think what will be interesting, especially with the change at the top, which donald trump will we see? will it be the trump that is newly on message or trump being trump? hillary clinton traveling to ohio, her mission convinced
1:11 am
middle class voters her tax plan would help them. donald trump wants to do the same. let's compare. clinton would keep current tax rates the same but raise taxes on the wealthy. on people making over $1 million a year and a 4% surcharge on those making more than $5 million a year. she would create a sliding scale for the capital gains tax raising it for certain investors. trump is looking to cut taxes. simplifying the current seven brackets to just three. and he didn't give specifics on what income levels the brackets cover. we didn't know who would get the big equivalent tax cuts. he would lower it to 15%. right now it's 35%. trump said is he would drop the interest deduction. and he wants to make child care costs deductible. he made his tax plan, george, more in line with paul ryan and
1:12 am
house republicans after an earlier tax plan that really gave a big tax cut to the rich. >> and transition into the general election. a bizarre case out of mixco, the notorious drug lord el chapo kidnapped. was he targeted? and has that affected the war on drugs? that story next.

1:24 am
brazil. it was fantastic to see her take her fourth gold of the games, especially when she slipped off on that beam routine. remember, she got a bronze medal to complete the record of five gold medals in one game. but it was a perfect routine. on the floor, almost spots, 15.966 which is just untouchable. of course, she finished ahead of her teammate ali raisman who is just the defending champion of 2012. raceman coming away with the silver medal. the and one we saw, the trademark, the simone biles on the floor. the double layup, with a second halftime. i've been talking about it all week, looking forward to it. simone biles only the fifth lady to take four olympic golds. meanwhile, the women's basketball team brushed aside another opponent tuesday night but not without being challenged
1:25 am
for the first time in the games. japan with incredible pace and tempo trailing the u.s. by ten points halftime. that was as far as they got, 20 minutes later, normal service resumed, the u.s. take aing it by a landslide, 110-64, winning streak of 47 games in the olympics is intact. and their bid for a sixth consecutive olympic gold still on the card. now, after completing his first leg of his bid to win the triple-triple here, usain bolt seems on track to take it. the lightning bolt strolled through on tuesday. 20.28 seconds, confirming afterwards he even jogged the final 15 meters. he was that far ahead. remember, it's not just the medals he's after in this event, he's also to go sub-19 seconds to break that world record. i wouldn't put it past him.
1:26 am
there was a touching end to tuesday's action when new zealand's nicki hamlet and abby angstino got up and helped her telling her they had to finish together. it's a fantastic story. it's what the olympics is all about. >> good sportsmanship. i'm watching this with my kids every night, basically, and stories like that i think are the most important part of the olympic games as we all watch this together as a competition. christina, thank you very much. donald trump pledging to be the law and order president but can he keep the order in his own campaign. they'll have a shake-up to tell

1:32 am
a big story breaking overnight, trump naming bright bart executive steve bannon as chief executive. pollster kellyanne conway is now campaign manager. paul manafort remains chairman but his power is likely diminished with these new moves. bannon is an ardent critic of house speaker paul ryan. and trump making a pitch to african-american voters with his law and order speech. giving a speech near, butter not in milwaukee, just days after violent protests of a police shootings of an armed african-american suspect. trump made his appeal with very few african-americans present. he called for more police in poor communities. more police in poor communities and targeted hillary clinton as anti-cop. >> the war on our police must end.
1:33 am
and it must end now. those peddling the narrative of cops as a racist force in our society, a narrative supported with a nod by my opponent, shared directly in the responsibility for the unrest in milwaukee and many other places within our country. every time we rush to judgment with false facts and narratives, whether in ferguson or baltimore and foment further unrest, we do a direct disservice to poor african-american residents who are hurt by the high crime in their community. >> our jason carroll has more on trump's big speech in wisconsin. >> reporter: christine, george, make no mistake, this was a law and order speech in west bend but it was also an attempt to reach out to the african-american community. donald trump when he reached the
1:34 am
stage talked about the violence plaguing the innercities. he talked about most of the victims like what we see things like what we saw in milwaukee or ferguson or baltimore. he talked about most the victims being african-americans. and he said that hillary clinton shares responsibility for the unrest that we've seen in american cities for what he called to the aring an anti-police narrative. and he says also for taking african-american votes for granted. >> we reject the bigotry of hillary clinton, which panders to and talks down to communities of color and sees them only as votes. that's all they care about. not as individual human beings worthy of a better future. they have taken advantage. she and her party officials, there has been tremendous suffering because of what they have brought. the african-american community has been taken for granted for
1:35 am
decades by the democratic party. and look how they're doing. it's time to break with the failures of the past. i want to offer americans a new and much better future. >> reporter: donald trump referenced the african-american community several times during his speech which was delivered here in washington county, which is a county that is overwhelmingly white, but having said that, the crowd really seemed to respond to donald trump's words. they even responded even more when he criticized hillary clinton saying that she does not have the, quote, physical or mental stamina for the job. and he also pointed reference to her slogan, i'm with her. he went on to tell the crowd, i'm with you, the american people. christine, george. >> jason, thank you. starting today, donald trump gets his first classified national security briefing. the briefing prepared by the director of national intelligence will mark the first
1:36 am
time the republican nominee gets access to classified intelligence. we also have new information this morning about donald trump's tv ads, the trump campaign saying it will roll out its first general election ads this weekend, targeting five battleground state where is trump is falling farther behind in polls. congressional staffers now have access to secret documents and notes turned over by the fbi for the investigation into hillary clinton's private e-mail server. the bureau making the extremely rare decision to turn over investigative material from a closed case in the name of transparency. staff from the oversight committee will have to review that material in a special secure room. material that cannot be publicly disclosed without the permission of the fbi. but the clinton campaign says it would rather see that material released to the public rather than have it selectively leaked by republicans. the resurgence of the e-mail issue is not slowing clinton
1:37 am
down on the campaign trail. her poll numbers show that she's pulling away from trump in key swing states like virginia, pennsylvania, ohio. a lot going on, let's bring in kristen holmes, she's covering the trump campaign. good morning, kristen. nice to see you, 4:37 in the morning. >> good morning. >> let's begin with the shake-up in the trump campaign. it's the second or third shake-up in the last few months. you've got paul manafort remaining as the chairman of the campaign. two other folks elevated to top spots. what does this tell us about what's going on inside team trump. kellyanne conway and the executive from brigeitbart are they going to help donald trump release donald trump or is this an evolution, a natural
1:38 am
evolution, three months before the election? >> i don't know i'd call it a natural evolution. as you know, the polls have come out in several key states saying clinton is far ahead. not just states like that, states that typically lean republican like georgia are also showing tight races. we've seen coming out of the trump rallies, trump saying obama is the founder of isis, saying he's been sarcastic, but then not really being sarcastic, the feud with the gold star family. and then friction has been mounting between paul manafort and donald trump so much so that the people near the campaign thought that a shake-up was imminent. one source telling cnn that both of them, both trump and manafort were telling friends about the problems within their relationship. now, as you mentioned this is the second shake-up that he's had in two months. two months ago we were talking
1:39 am
about campaign manager corey lewandowski being ousted and manafort taking his place. now, it seems like he's brought in two new senior advisers to take on the campaign manager role. kellyanne conway, a longtime associate of donald trump and the campaign. and steve bannon, a longtime associate of donald trump. just last night, with an affiliate, donald trump was saying i'm not going to pivot. if you start pivot, then you're not being truthful. we'll see what's going on. republicans have been very unsure in the last couple weeks, they've been biting their nails with the poll numbers hoping that it didn't affect local elections as well. it's a good start but ultimately it comes down to the candidate. >> let's take a look at some of those poll numbers. let's look at how donald trump is doing with african-american
1:40 am
voters. when you look at that number, 1%, that's not so good. let's take a look at how trump is doing in the state of florida. key swing state there. trump behind hillary clinton, 39% behind her 48%. and also virginia, hillary clinton at 52%, trump at 38%. kristen, the question, with this shake-up at the top, and trump preparing to be trump, to continue to what worked for him during the primaries, is the idea, is the thought during that campaign, that this will work, and this will appeal to more voters and broaden the tent, so to speak in the general election? >> well, a source telling cnn this is what trump believes he believes that kellyanne conway and steve bannon, bringing them on that is going to help. he told "the wall street journal" this morning, i just want to win. i'm bringing on people who can help me win.
1:41 am
of course, he sees this as the best strategy. we had team friction but sources telling cnn that within the campaign trump starting to feel boxed in. that people are trying to tell him what to do because this gives him leeway because these are long-term associates who know him, who have worked with him in the past and who will support how he wants to handle this campaign. >> we heard him talking about how african-american communities need more policing. talking about a real law and order message. does this, i guess, hr move today, overshadow his message from last night, do you think? has he tripped up here? >> well, one of the things that we noticed on the campaign is that it's always something like this. he gives a policy speech and then something else happens. honestly, we've seen this on the clinton side as well. she gives a policy speech, two minutes later, there's an e-mail. it goes back and forth. as that continues we will see if
1:42 am
this does overshadow that. however, i think he's trying to stay on message. he's given two major speeches using teleprompters which i know he doesn't like. and trying to reach out to different communities. and also started an agricultural advisory board. obviously reaching out to several different communities there. we will see how this plays out and continues to stay on message or if the hr shake-up makes things change. >> we've seen trump double down on many issues, it seems that trump is tripling down on trump being trump. thank you, kristen. one of those polls recently, immigration, donald trump's immigration proposals are running into some gloomy forecast from his own alma mater. the wharton school at the university of pennsylvania introduced trump's floorn undocumented workers with the result of 4 million fewer jobs by 2030. it projects trump would support 10% of the deportations
1:43 am
undocumented population every year. taking jobs that no one else wants that is their research and removing them would shrink the labor force. hillary clinton's proposals would lead to job losses but 400,000 over four years. the school, wharton says, clinton's path to citizenship program would make more workers legal and entitle them to safety programs like unemployment benefits that would make some less likely to work. however, researchers say that documented workers tend to be more productive. so the labor force would be smaller, more workers would earn higher wages and that would boost the economy. interesting, sharpening their pencil at wharton trying to figure out what each of the candidates would mean. >> and the decisions will make a big difference on the key voting blocs. we're following a situation in the state of california. a wildfire there, tens of thousands forced to leave their
1:44 am
homes as firefighters struggle to fight the fires. we'll have the details -- next.
