1:13 pm
amid all of the news reports, there is a cloud that the campaign is under. they don't alleviate that cloud. there are a lot of former employees speaking out against his management tile. he does not have a good reputation. they are coming on places like cnn, they're gagged because of the nature of the relationship he has with his employees. >> maybe he should have got a real sweet heart, but they were not available. this an expansion of the team. paul manafort is still there. bannon is an operative and he will get the job done. i think it is a missed
1:14 pm
opportunity. i don't understand what trump is doing. last night he is out there saying he wants to have the african-american vote. ♪ the way he said it i think fell pretty flat. then you get someone the least likely -- the problem with the whole breitbart crew is they have been so tough on barack share the joy of real cream... obama that he will go from 1% of ...with reddi-wip. the black vote to 0% of the black vote. >> donald trump gave a law and order speech in wisconsin that a lot of conservatives liked, why african-americans should be more receptive to the republican party and the democratic party failed them. he stayed largely on his tele prom teleprom teleprompter. we're told that trump has been frustrated with the efforts to keep him from sticking to the teleprompter and keep him on message. so i guess i don't understand the contra decision there.
1:15 pm
he is well received when he does these message oriented events. >> i think you have a combination when you're dealing with donald trump and that makes welcome back to "the lead." him exciting. when joe biden comes to his hillary clinton facing questions hometown, have a measly 3,000 people, if donald trump comes about the clinton foundation. next week they will have 15,000. there is far more excitement for it's work costs money and the donald trump. donations come with people with business before the state department. in 2008, president elect obama he reached out to the insisted on a firewall between foundation efforts and state department business. but an e-mail shows they asked african-american community. this is run by a democrat mayor, state department aides to gain that have ruined opportunities, access to a donor. it is a deal that did not go hurt the schools i think donald through, and it all happened trump to go down there shows
1:16 pm
great leadership. after clinton's tenure. >> i welcome anyone who cares. but it raises questions about first of all, he says -- i was favoritism and separation of foundation and state. today clinton is in ohio, trying to paint trump as a man behind shady deals. clinton trying to make a trump someone saying in september, october, november, i think there loophole thing stick with is an opening in the black voters. >> yes, hillary clinton says community for trump. i said there is dissatisfaction that the trump family would in the black community with parts of the democratic party. stand to get a $4 billion tax he curdled the milk before you got to christmas. benefit if state taxes were a l by his tone is not good. aboli abolished. portraying trump as out for himself. riding high on new polls showing big leads in virginia and colorado and tied in iowa, hillary clinton arrived in battleground ohio today in full attack mode leveling attacks
1:17 pm
against donald trump calling out i think it is hard to have the the businessman over his failure african-american in the tank to disclose tax returns and this much for democrats. repeating the accusation of the trump is making it worse, not benefit of $4 billion. better. >> remember, he is dealing with >> he created a new tax loophole that we call the trump loophole. african-american sheriff david clark. we have no idea what tax rate he >> the last word -- >> for all of these polls to so pays because unlike everyone heavily favor hillary clinton, she continues to get a clean else who has run for president in the last four or five decades pass, she doesn't have to answer questions about the clinton foundation, or the need to shut it down before these questions he refuses to release his tax because we're constantly talking return. >> and clinton's campaign about trump and he has -- >> i don't know if you saw our manager was blasting the trump campaign for the latest shake up telling reporters on a blog, thank you so much, appreciate it. a mining accident turns a conference call donald trump has decided to double down on the river orange. now this vital source of water most small, nas tick, and is still not cleaned up and the farmers are suing the obama administration.
