5:01 am
welcome to "inside politics." i'm john king. thanks for sharing your sunday morning. 79 days until election 2016. donald trump is trying to shake things up. in more ways than one. >> i am the change candidate. hillary clinton is for the failed status quo. it is time to vote for a new american future. >> yes, mr. trump is changing his top staff for the second time in as many months. that tells us a lot about his management style and about the turmoil in the trump campaign and the republican party. there are bigger changes as trump tries to turn the tide on a campaign he is losing, and at the moment losing badly. here is the question. is this the real donald trump? >> sometimes, in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don't
5:02 am
choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. i have done that. and believe it or not, i regret it. and i do regret it. particularly where it may have caused personal pain. >> or is this the real donald trump? >> when mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. they're bringing drugs. they're bringing crime. their rapists. and some, i assume, are good people. >> written by a nice reporter. you got to see this guy. i don't know what i said. i don't remember. i love the old days. you know what they used to do to guys like that in a place like this? they would be carried out on a stretcher folks. he is walking out like big high fives, smiling, laughing, like to punch him in the face. i'll tell you. >> try it again. is this the real donald trump? >> a new future requires
5:03 am
brand-new leadership. look how much african-american communities have suffered under democratic control. to those i say the following. what do you have to lose by trying something new. >> that guy or this guy, the candidate who talked about paying the legal fees of a white supporter who sucker-punched an african-american demonstrator at a trump rally, the man who, when considering running for president in 2012 served as chief cheerleader for the birther movement. >> i have done a great service to the american people. i got him to release a birth certificate that he should have done three years ago and four years ago. >> with us to share the reporting and their insights cnn's nia-malika henderson, jonathan martin of the "new york times," abby phillip of the
5:04 am
"washington post" and abbey cam of the federalist. >> if donald trump, the man who says kri don't regret anything says he now regrets a lot. he is suddenly making an outreach in every speech to african-americans and yesterday, mary catherine he had a speech with african-americans supporters. the reports by univision and others that as early as thursday in colorado, a state where the latino vote is huge. donald trump, whose website now says amnesty might soften his position on the 11 million undocumented immigrants. this is not a pivot. it's like a body double. >> i think donald trump has always been changeable on policies. but not changeable on tone. this was an interesting week because you did see him change tone. what i thought was interesting about the shakeup is you about bannon who is a punch you in
5:05 am
your face retterition and kellyanne conway who has a lighter, effective touch. you saw her capable fingerprints on the speech and then you saw him veer from it in the subsequent speeches. he wants to go back to riffing because that's who he is. it's like bringing in a quarterback controversy during the playoffs. >> as we talk throughout the show and later about the african-american outreach, but my first question is, is it believable? can you change? can you so significantly change your tone 11 weeks out and will people find it convincing? i have learned lessons? i'm a better candidate. i've grown. people do grow. none of us are perfect. will they say, come on, bs, this is a cynical ploy because what you were doing wasn't working. >> he has called himself the candidate of change. it feels like a u-turn. can he stick to it. i think that's the big question. i think the -- part of the problem is a lot of the polls
5:06 am
obviously say he is doing very poorly. a lot of this stuff is baked in. you talk about kellyanne conway, for instance, it seems like she is trying to add compassion and make him out to be the compassionate conservative. he had been the law and order candidate, shades of nixon. he's trying to pick up on the george w. bush approach. those two were kind of in conflict. can he kind of maintain both of those identities at the same time, keep a hold of the base that loves him when he's riffing, loves him when he's playing the tough guy but also try to get some college educated white women and swing voters who want to see the compassion. >> didn't the base love him when he said build a ball and he admired operation wet back. if he stands up in colorado and says let's find a humane way to keep the undocumented here. they'll say great, that's the only viable policy but his base
5:07 am
will say, whoa? >> if you look at the script this week and the first ad he released it's the same populism vergen on nationalism he's been pitching for the last few months. it doesn't have much appeal for certainly non-wihite voters and upscale voters who are often the swing voters. showing an ad of hispanic folks on top of trains is not going to appeal to sur urban philadelphia college plus white voters or voters in falls church. i don't get why people think he's doing the great pivot when the scripted version of trump is still nationalism. right? >> my question is, do the clinton people see this as real? if you watch them on twitter, watch their statements in recent days -- and i'll play a little hillary clinton. this is the beginning of the week. she was not responding to friday and saturday, which was the
5:08 am
continuation of the change from new trump tone and hints of possible new policy. here is clinton trying to tell people off the top, don't believe what you're about to see. >> i think it's fair to say that donald trump has shown us who he is. he can hire and fire anybody he wants from his campaign. they can make him read new words from a teleprompter. but he is still the same man who insults gold star families, demeans women, mocks people with disabilities, and thinks he knows more about isis than our generals. there is no new donald trump. this is it. >> is it in the sense that one of the things that has proven frustrating to hillary clinton is because people think they know her because she's been around for so long. it's hard for people to change opinions about her. donald trump, people know him as a celebrity and a real estate guy but he did change opinions
5:09 am
about him because he's new on the political stage. is there a fear in the campaign? they may think it's cynical and bogus, but do they think it might work? >> they worry it might have the effect of consolidating republicans. when you look at the polling in recent weeks, it's shown that donald trump has not done what virtually every other republican nominee has done, which is consolidate his base. get up where she is among democrats, in the 80s and close to the 90s among republicans. there are many republicans including people in washington who want to say we want to know if donald trump will be reliable to do what we want him to do. that's what he demonstrated last week. i don't think the clinton folks are worried about swing voters. to jonathan's point, the suburban women, they've been bombarded with ads from the clinton campaign locking in donald trump's persona for many, many months now. it will be very hard to undo that with one speech. i think republicans who are looking for a reason to trust trump, this might be that reason that they're looking for. >> a lot of the polls show that
5:10 am
some of the republicans are concerned about him being intolerant. one in five republican men see him as intolerant. 25% of republican women. so when he goes and he is in front of the white audiences, he actually is appealing to those white audiences when he talks about african-americans. he isn't really, i don't think at least, appealing to african-americans. he is trying to appeal to the audiences he is in front of. >> you mentioned the softer touch of kellyanne conway. she has never run a campaign. a lot of republicans are nervous about her running a campaign at this level. she has a history of messaging to get to more moderate voters. we saw donald trump and mike pence go to baton rouge. it's a photo op. a lot of them do. i am not criticizing him. he went and showed some compassion. helping unload an aid truck. on a couple occasions he said he thought barack obama should have broken his vacation and gone there or at least come back to the white house to monitor this.
5:11 am
is this a smart, reactive politics, neither here nor there? >> i think it's a rare moment where he saw a moment that made him look a bit more compassionate and went for that lane. there is a lane open because of the obama administration up until several days ago not having released a statement, though they've done resource updates. i think it was not a bad move. the question is can he find the lanes for the rest of the campaign. you're right when he is probably trying to go after disaffected republicans. had he done it six months ago, it would have been much more likely. at this point it's tougher. >> great point. a lot of people who watched the status quo speech were like, why didn't you do this before? th the campaign shakeup. i don't think voters tend to vote for who is on the letterhead. but this was interesting. paul manafort gets shoved aside
5:12 am
and then resigns. kellyanne conway gets promoted. she was the senior adviser and is now the campaign manager. steve bannon from bright bart. and roger ailes is showing up at certain meetings. he helped george h.w. bush meet michael dukakis. he is a guy who just had to quit his job because of sexual harassment allegations. i can't assume the hillary clinton campaign won't use that in an add pretty soon. inside the shakeup it's made establishment republicans nervous. steve bannon has treated them as a pinata. if you are a republican leader the man has essentially called you worse than the democrats. >> it's a jekyll and hyde shakeup. there are two opposite sides here. the concern with bannon is that
5:13 am
he is only skilled -- and a little bit ailes -- they're only skilled in reaching the people you're already reaching. is that the goal? for a couple days it looked like he was trying to reach other people. i think he'll always go back to the bannon and ailes side. >> manafort came in. he was supposed to be the adult. >> he doesn't want that. >> low energy. he jeb bushed him. >> trump started calling manafort low energy. trump doesn't want order. he doesn't want discipline. he doesn't want a chain of command. he wants to do his thing, which is making decisions on the fly based upon coverage, watching shows like this, reading the papers. that's how he operates. with counsel from his kids. look, is he going to have folks around him? yes. but he'll never operate like a
5:14 am
traditional candidate. manafort's efforts to impose a traditional campaign structure on trump were found to fail. in some ways it's amazing that it lasted this long. he was trying to make trump into a traditional candidate. it was not a marriage made in heaven. is donald trump finally spending money on tv ads? yes. we'll map out where and what it tells us about the state of the race. here is vice president joe biden unfiltered. >> as hillary will point out and knows no one ever doubts i mean what i say. the problem is i sometimes say all that i mean.

5:19 am
. welcome back. our latest cnn electoral map underscores the challenge for donald trump. steep challenge with 79 days until election day. we score it dark red, solid republican. dark blue, solid democratic. the light-blues lean democratic and the light reds lean republican. if the election were today by our projections she would win the presidency. never mind the states left on the board. yellow states are the tossup states. as of now hillary clinton would be the next president of the united states. still time for mr. trump. his strategy, he has to win florida. he has to hold north carolina, which mitt romney won in 2012. no republican wins without winning ohio. that would get donald trump there. but one of the big places the trump campaign looks at is pennsylvania, right? if they can change that one, flipping three states and holder north carolina, trump could win under that scenario. not today. today, let me reinforce the point. today hillary clinton is winning and there are several other
tv-commercial
5:20 am
states on the board where she is leading. donald trump now launching his first paid advertising of the general election in four states. the ones i mentioned. ohio, pennsylvania, north carolina and florida. the ones he most needs to make this race competitive. here is the problem for donald trump. in all of those states at the moment he is losing. this is an average. more recent polls show bigger clinton leads. on average hillary clinton up four in florida, up two in ohio, up nine in pennsylvania, up four in north carolina. look at this, though, again, if you want to hold open the possibility of a trump comeback. that's not that big of a lead nor is that or that. tough sledding but possible. donald trump picking those four states to launch the first big ads of the general election. in hillary clinton's america, the system stays rigged against americans. syrian refugees flood in. illegal immigrants convicted of committing crimes get to stay. it's more of the same but worse. donald trump's america is secure, terrorists and dangerous criminals kept out.
5:21 am
the borders secured, our families safe. >> let's -- get to the message in a second. one of the things republicans are saying is where have you been. they've been behind in fou fund-raising and her friends in the super pac community have been on television for months. >> they say people haven't been tuned in all this time and obviously hillary clinton -- the hillary clinton campaign has made a different calculation. you saw obama make a different calculation last time as well in going after mitt romney. i think we are in a new era in the sense that people every day are on their phones and facebook and hearing about this campaign constantly. they're hearing about it from their friends and all the time on social media. so, you know, i mean, better late than never for the ads. i think that ad certainly is an echo of his speech at the rnc, the kind of law and order thing. again, he is playing to the anxieties. >> is it, to your point earlier,
5:22 am
that that's an ad -- he is under-performing among republicans right now. if he gets his republican support back where it should be, 90-plus percent it makes the race more competitive. doing it with 90 days to go is a sign of weakness. >> it is. >> i'm being kind. >> very gracious. >> ads are one thing. we also have to look at the big picture which is that donald trump has almost no presence in key swing states. in florida, north carolina, in pennsylvania, and in ohio. that's a huge problem. because ads are reinforced by the ground game, by people knocking on doors and finding your voters and bringing them out. it's sort of like part of a larger picture of under preparedness. the clinton folks are hammering away piece by piece. they're going after the early vote in a lot of these states and sort of just -- it's incredibly me ththodical. >> playing like they're behind. >> yes.
5:23 am
the ad will help him with republicans in some ways. he has the added challenge of counter-balancing literally tens of millions of dollars going after swing voters smoo it. >> it's been a huge complaint if you call into the senate races in ohio and new hampshire, where is the trump cavalry. we can't trust these people. they've hired a couple guys, they're nice people but not experienced at this level. in the terms of nuts and bolts, if donald trump will pull off a historic comeback, no one has done it, but i leave open the possibility. republicans and conservatives around the country are worried. >> the pitch was he has all this money, he can write a giant check and swoop in. >> that he hires the right people. >> we keep seeing that changing. the turn-around of the numbers which he accomplished in the republican primary that he can do it in a general.
5:24 am
they don't always make a distinction between the primary and general electorate, which are very different things. up until this week, the third party candidates gary johnson and jill stein had spent more time on air than the general candidate. 2016. >> this is a good ad for the republican base. basically, at this point the republican party wants trump to get the 45% roughly. they need him to get the 45. i was talking to folks this week. he is down 11 in north carolina according to multiple polls. good, quality polls. similar in pennsylvania. similar in virginia. the barn door is closing. the important thing now, though, is to get trump stabilized with his own party. the reason is you mitigate the damage down-ballot. pat toomey in pennsylvania can win if trump is losing by five or six. ten, it's impossible. >> people in the party are saying abandon trump.
5:25 am
there is a bigger risk in that as well as a benefit. there is no switch that says move the money here. it doesn't work that way. it's complicated. if trump collapses they go with him. >> he is underperforming a generic republican. l for trump to be where he is is a signal of a significant problem. and getting the down-ballot folks -- getting voters to split that ticket is going to be extremely challenging. >> what would he have called a generic republican during the primaries? mr. vanilla. >> i don't know if you can find that way. >> generic republicans or democrats. the best candidate. donald trump predicts he will get 95% of the african-american vote in 2020. more on his new message next. first, though, take our "inside politics" quiz. the president is headed to baton rouge on tuesday after his vacation. should he have cut short his

5:30 am
dig deeper now on a few of the more provocative things donald trump said in the past week beginning with the deeper appeal for more african-american votes. >> what do you have to lose? look. you're living in poverty. your schools are no good. you have no jobs. 58% of your youth is unemployed. what the hell do you have to lose? >> let's set aside for a moment anyway the fact that the fact checkers say that statistic, the 58% and other statistics he mentions are distorted or just
5:31 am
wrong. >> at the end of four years, i guarantee you, that i will get over 95% of the african-american vote. i promise you. because i will produce. i will produce for the inner cities, and i will produce for the african-americans. and the democrats -- the democrats will not produce, and all they've done is taken advantage of your vote. >> that's a rather bold 2020 prediction there by a republican candidate. 95% of the african-american vote. first things first. trump's current standing among african-americans is terrible. a recent abc "washington post" poll showed him getting 2% of the african-american poll. on the bright side, that was double the 1% african-american support found for trump in an nbc wall street journal poll after the democratic national convention. you want to give the guy the benefit of the doubt if the outreach is genuine. but the reaction about the tone
5:32 am
was essentially, you know, african-americans, you're kind of dumb for supporting the democrats. here i am. a lot of people, even a lot of republicans were like, well, no, do have the jack kemp/paul ryan way, don't do it that way. >> what's interesting about trump is he's reserved a lot of the more controversial statements for other groups. hispanic americans, muslims. for african-americans, he's said some things but hasn't really gone there with them. african-americans start with trump with 2012, the birther stuff. they start with him there. and when you start there, most african-americans view that as a flatly racist statement. donald trump has to express some regret for that, maybe, and then move on to some other things. >> good luck. good luck. i tried when the birth certificate came out. i said aren't you at all embarrassed for leading this exercise? he said, no, he had done the country a great service. >> talking to black republicans
5:33 am
in 2012 at the tampa convention they conceded with obama on the ballot they weren't going to get the standard issue 10% that republicans get among african-americans. they thought 2016 would be different. the black republicans i have talked to after this feel glad that they don't have to go on air and defend what he said. they feel like donald trump has no credibility, no standing with black republicans, and the people who he is surrounding himself with. people like omarosa. they don't have that much credibility with black republicans. it's doubtful that he'll get 10%. one of his people said they think he'll get 20%. i think he'll do about as well as mitt romney did. >> that was 6%. mccain got 4%. bob dole dot 12%. >> the bush folks put a lot of energy on it. 16% of the black vote in '04.
5:34 am
that was crucial to him. >> a lot of people questioned bush's policy in the african-american community and a lot of the people were predisposed to be democrats but they didn't question his heart. >> he courted the black evangelicals around same-sex marriage. >> there is an argument to be made to the black community on certain issues. the jack kemp/paul ryan way is a better way. particularly school choice is one where the labor on the democratic side is staunchly opposed and it really benefits the african-american community. he is not a guy who makes that argument. you are right that he's reaching out to some republican voters to say, look, i am trying here. i am not sure it works. i think clinton can frame the "what do you have to lose "in an ad like this. >> he is a geo tv machine for black democrats now. that "what the hell do you have to lose" will be played a lot. he is a provacture. is the republican party of 2016 okay with their standard bearer
5:35 am
going to an almost all-white rally and basically saying the black community is a hell-hole, what the hell do you have to lose? where are the leaders of the gop? i haven't heard a word from them since he said that. i get they don't respond to everything but for a party that they proudly deem the party of lincoln, the silence -- >> he did soften his tone yesterday. he said i want to be the party of lincoln again. i would be honored if i had the african-american voter. >> hillary clinton tweeted out it's so ignorant it's staggering. we were talking about the end of the week but at the beginning of the week he was talking about his views on isis and national security and trying to explain what originally began as a muslim ban is now a ban on people coming in -- he says we need a policy -- a ban on people coming in from countries where there are suspicions of supporting terrorist activity.
5:36 am
>> we should only admit into this country those who share our values and respect our people. in the cold war we are an idealogical screening test. the time is overdue to develop a new screening test for the threats we face today. i call it extreme vetting. >> now, this whole idea, a lot of people say how does it work, what is extreme vetting? in his defense this is an area where he got considerable support during the primaries. people think, explain it to me, but yeah, let's be tough on who comes into the kucountry. that seemed, again, much more like shoring up his base again, not doing what a general election candidate needs to do. >> i do think this is an area where he can say there are two people -- many people people not
5:37 am
just those on the right who have lost faith in the government to do what they say they're going to do. this is a point where people will say i am not sure i trust the guy but i feel he's serious. >> if he could connect it to the issue of government confidence. >> and also display fluency. when he's so tethered to the teleprompter, he doesn't seem to be speaking in a way where he has deep knowledge about something. i think he has to work on that. >> for the clinton folks, when they look at something like that, they look at the teleprompter and wait 12 or 24 hours for him to appear on a television show and answer questions. he inevitably reverts back to the kind of language that he was using earlier. i think they believe they can count on that kind of like clockwork. >> the 95% was an ad lib. the appeal was in written speech.

hillary clinton is promising big changes to how the family and its foundation does its business if she wins the white house. one pledge is that the clinton foundation will no longer take contributions from foreign governments or corporations. also no more paid speeches by bill clinton. that's another promise. the timing, more than a little curious. donald trump of late has been much more aggressive in questioning clinton's ethics. >> while our country lost badly under hillary clinton, she cashed in big-time. there was all the money funneled into the clinton foundation from foreign governments and corporations. it was pay for play. in a trump administration, the state department will work for
5:43 am
the country, not for hillary clinton's donors. >> it's not just the candidate. the new chief executive of the trump campaign comes from a conservative website which has long accused the clintons of corruption. >> a new report today claims the clinton foundation gives about 10% of its money that it raises to actual charities. >> enormous amounts of money have flowed to the clintons from foreign governments, foreign financiers and businesses. >> now, this change, if she becomes president, and there are already people seeing loopholes in the change, but -- surprise, yeah -- we won't take foreign money, won't take corporation money. bill clinton won't give paid speeches. he is not giving any right now. com the boston globe said a week ago she should shut it down they say why didn't it pose a problem as secretary of state.
5:44 am
the answer is it did and does and they know it. >> the clintons will get away with whatever they can for as long as possible. it violate the spirit of ethical agreements or laws. this is how they do business. trump and she are fighting on equally unlikable unpopular grounds here. this is another thing where, had she done it six months ago, the story would be different now. he is willing to be extremely frank about her behavior. that will be a weakness for her. >> this will be an interesting debate. whether trump can carry this in the debate or whether she turns the trump industries and finances -- >> he has a cleaner argument now that manafort is no longer with the campaign. he was a bit of a liability because of his overseas dealings as well. i think this is a powerful argument that the trump campaign -- that trump himself can make. it's sort of -- either real corruption or the specter of corruption.
5:45 am
a whiff of pay for play. >> can you expect this woman to change washington. >> we did an analysis over the weekend that found half of the money would have fallen under the rules that are now banned for donation. it's a real thing for them that going back to her state department years, she was -- her family foundation was accepting money from foreign governments and entities in ways that they are acknowledging is basically unethical -- or would be unethical come november. >> their big gathering is this fall. so it will come up again. >> the fact that she was doing this while secretary of state, taking i mean big money from the saudis, for example. where are the ads? it's one more example of just -- if you had a functional opposition, can you imagine the kind of attacks that could be launched? now at almost labor day to say, if she is president we'll shut it down. it's such easy fodder. one fast point. this is part of her challenge

with younger voters. this is part of the reason why she was vulnerable against bernie. not because of idealogical issues but the specter and unseemliness of some of their financial dealings. it seems so cynical. this is part of her challenge. trump has been a gift, but this is part of her challenge, winning over younger, more idealistic voters. >> you have judicial watch about trying to get the e-mails out. it files a lot of suits to get government documents. if you are a fan of transparency, you should support that aspect. a judge has said they want to depose her. the judge said no. you don't get a deposition in person but she'll answer written questions. we saw reports this week that in her fbi interview she said, i had the personal e-mail account because colin powell told me
5:47 am
that's the way to do things. is there a possibility -- she and her lawyers will answer the questions from judicial watch. i assume they'll be extra careful but it still raises the perfe possibility that we're not done here. >> most people in the polls think something unethical happened. but they also suggest people are sick of hearing about her e-mails. the clinton campaign is voting on the latter, they have to be worried about the drip, drip, drip of this and if they can essentially start to lose this thing sort of a death by a thousand cuts. >> even while voters are maybe sick of the sort of atmosphere of talking about these e-mails and the controversy, every time that something comes out that's concrete like these most recent e-mails that revealed things about the clinton foundation or whatever we may hear from her fbi interviews or from the depositions to come, it gives more concrete fodder for voters to latch onto. so they can say it's not just
5:48 am
that they feel she is untrustworthy but they can point to something. they're dealing with the drip, drip, drip of real things. >> jim comey validating it with his searing statement. >> we'll see if trump can get in position close enough to make opportunities if they're there. next, a plea to the pollsters about the poll tickets. the question. should the president have cut short his stay? most of you, wow. most of you say no. words no one even knows.

some folks is that it's as close as it is. it's 2 points separate them. they're basically tied there. the interesting thing is that demographically, at least racially, it's similar to colorado and virginia. but yet and still, it's neck and neck. you'll see tim kaine and hillary clinton trying to widen the gap. the focus on union voters and on working-class white voters. that's the difference in the state. it's 16% union households. barack obama won 60% of those households. that's the focus there as they get to the state that's proven to be a much more difficult nut to crack. >> the surprise has been how it's been so tight. >> she was raising money in nantucket. for ay from places like nevada. i think she'll now put it to good use i am told. i understand from the clinton campaign they're going to put down an 8-figure buy this fall.

candidate may make it to the stage. there was a petition by johnson and his supporters to say include his name so he can hit 15%. the petition may have worked too well because now all four candidates are included in anyomany of the polls. so jockeying continuing to happen as the invitations to the debates go out. >> an important month ahead for the libertarians. the turmoil in trump land may not be over. paul manafort resigned last week after his role sharply reduced when trump named a new campaign manager and chief executive. several members of his team are also mulling whether to say. a handful of staffers brought in my manafort saying they've been pushed out of the loop. some learning about new campaign decisions by watching the candidate on television or

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. 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 mybreo.com.
