2:00 am
release of thousands more documents uncovered during her time as secretary of state. how is she responding? and president obama ready to visit baton rouge, louisiana to survey the damaged floods. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm boris sanchez. it is tuesday, august 23rd. we start with donald trump. he is turning up the rhetorical heat on hillary clinton calling her corrupt. edamming what he described as hes her criminality and calling for a special prosecutor to probe links with the secretary of state and the clinton foundation. in a speech last night in akron, ohio, he targeted clinton on immigration. this comes hours after his planned speech on the subject was postponed. we have cnn's sara murray with
2:01 am
more from ohio. >> reporter: good morning, boris and christine. this was supposed to be the week donald trump was to be talking about immigration. he is on the trail to hammer hillary clinton. he accused her in akron, ohio of pay for play and called for a special prosecutor to look at the ties with the clinton foundation and state department. >> p the clinton foundation huge sums of money and throw in big speaking fees for bill clinton and you got to play. the amounts involved, the favors done and the significant number of times it was done require an expedited investigation by a special prosecutor immediately, immediately, immediately. >> reporter: now not only was this red meat to the republican base, but an overture to the voters who wonder if hillary clinton is trust worthy.
2:02 am
this is all coming about the stance of his immigration. he spoke with his advisory council and his campaign manager suggested the deportation force he once called for may not come to fruition. in akron, there was not sign of moderation. he vowed to build that wall and extreme vetting for immigrants. as for the immigration speech he planned to give in colorado, the campaign has scrapped that. back to you. >> thank you, sara. as for the planned immigration speech set for thursday, a campaign source telling cnn it is off the schedule for this week. the source says the campaign wants more time to fine tune trump's policy and the language of that speech. trump saying he is not flip flopping on immigration. this despite campaign manager suggesting a day earlier to be determined. for now, trump saying he will
2:03 am
come up with a firm and fair process. >> we have plenty to get to this morning. joining us to talk about all of the political action is brian stelter. host of "reliable sources." and from washington, eugene scott. good morning to you both. we have to start with hillary clinton's visit to jimmy kimmel. she had not been in the public high for a couple days. she comes on jimmy kimmel with a lot of questions about her health. something playing out a lot. here is her response to claims that she is unhealthy for office. >> are you in good health? >> well, this has become one of their themes. take my pulse while i'm talking to you. >> okay. >> so make sure i'm alive. >> oh, my god. there's nothing there. >> back in october, the national enquirer said i would be dead in six months. so with every breath i take, i
2:04 am
feel like it is a new lease on life. i don't know why they are saying this. i think on the one hand it is part of the wacky strategy. just say all these crazy things and maybe you can get some people to believe you. on the other hand, it just absolutely makes no sense. i don't go around questioning trump's health. as far as i can tell, he is as healthy as a horse. >> his doctor said he had the best health examination he has ever seen in a human being. >> i saw that. >> can you open this jar of pickles? this has not been tampered with. >> eugene, i wanted to ask you. this approach using humor to diffuse the claims is an intelligent one. how does it play with independent voters?
2:05 am
the few that may be undecided. >> i think the mention of the national enquirer is a key. most people consider that questionable that donald trump spoken positive of that. he referenced that publication when he talked about allegations regarding the father of ted cruz. i think hillary clinton wants to highlight the sourcing for the concerns is not the strongest. hopefully she thinks the independent voters will hear that. >> i want to play another piece of sound here. hillary clinton talking about the debate prep with donald trump and what it is like to prepare for a debate. listen. >> how do you prepare for a debate with donald trump? >> i'm here to ask for your help. >> i might be able to fill in for him. >> well -- >> can you prepare?
2:06 am
>> you have to prepare. i watched a lot of his debates during the primaries. he insulted all of his opponents. he insulted all of the moderators. he insulted i guess 80% of the american people and rest of the world. how do you prepare for that? i think on the one hand it is a serious chance for americans to tune in and if they haven't made up their minds, try to make up their minds. i want to take it seriously. i want to talk about what we can do and how important it is. you have to be prepared for wacky stuff that comes at you. i am drawing on my experience in elementary school. >> she used the word wacky again about trump and the strategies. >> there is a point she is trying to make again and again. she will make it again in august and september. she referred to an alternative
2:07 am
universe and reality. this has echos from the '90s. one of her allies is quoted as saying it is a conglomerate. now one of those advising donald trump's campaign. she clearly think it is s it is for her to point this out. she is acknowledging the debate prep. he had a debate prep meeting. he is not saying who is playing clinton in his meetings. >> speaking of trump. we have to ask about the approach he has of the more inclusive approach. here is sound from a rally in akron, ohio last night. >> our government has totally
2:08 am
failed our african-american friends, our hispanic friends and the people of our country period. the democrats have failed completely in the inner cities. you can go to war zones in countries that we're fighting and it's safer than living in some of our inner cities that are run by the democrats. what the hell do you have to lose? give me a chance. i'll straighten it out. i'll straighten it out. >> christine, you brought up a good point as the clip was playing. there is not a single person of color in the image. eugene, how much is this meant for the minorities to come over to the gop and those in the middle helsitant to come to trup and is this damage control?
2:09 am
>> those are very important points. i guess there are some degree of improvement that speech was in akron which has a larger black and hispanic population than the two communities he spoke to last week hoping to attract black voters. us mentioned, there are some voters leaning toward donald trump who have not been comfortable with how he has talked about issues related to black and hispanic people. and him making this appeal which is factual in many ways. many black and brown voters are frustrated and believe the party has not done the best job of advancing issues of concern to them. bringing the issues to the front will help donald trump attract voters uncomfortable with him because of the language, but hope he makes a change in how he talks about the issues. >> brian, i have to ask you about e-mails. every newspaper this morning, the trail of e-mails. hillary clinton joked about it last night, but it is no joking
2:10 am
matter. the e-mail headlines continue. is. >> the jokes on kimmel fell flat. he is trying to say her e-mails are boring. clearly, many people disagree. on the front page of "the new york times." more questions about e-mail use shadow clinton. it is the middle of august. the e-mail story has been going on for years, it feels like. there is a drip, drip, drip element to it because there are new discoveries of troves of e-mails or disclosures from them. it is the most valuable or effective talking point trump has against her right now when it comes to her time as secretary of state. >> we have so many questions to ask. brian and eugene, we will see you in the next half hour. >> get a cup of coffee. come back. let's talk about money. economists think hillary clinton is best for u.s. business. donald trump not even the second best choice in the new survey of more than 400 economists.
2:11 am
it chose 55% picked clinton as the top choice for economic policy. gary johnson with 15%. then donald trump at 14%. another 15% say they don't know. these results are another sign of how trump is struggling to connect with the business community despite touting his record as a business titan. 61% say the u.s. needs to allow more immigration. that was the top issue among respondents. 65% say u.s. has to be open to trade. most of the economists say overall uncertainty during the election cycle is holding back u.s. growth. that's interesting. >> definitely. you mentioned earlier today in break, hillary clinton is expected to announce economic policy. >> maybe a new economic policy for small business owners. a standard deduction.

2:31 am
cnn's sara murray has more from ohio. >> reporter: good morning, boris and christine. this was supposed to be the week donald trump was talking about immigration. instead, he is on the trail using his time to hammer hillary clinton. he accused her of pay for play and called for a special prosecutor to look at the ties with the clinton foundation and the state department. >> pay the clinton foundation huge sums of money and throw in big speaking fees for bill clinton and you got to play. the amounts involved, the favors done and the significant number of times it was done require an expedited investigation by a special prosecutor immediately, immediately, immediately. >> reporter: now not only was this red meat to his republican base, but it is an overture to independent voters who wonder if hillary clinton is trust worthy.

all of this comes as a fervor around donald trump if he is moderating his stance on immigration. he met with hispanic advisory council and campaign manager suggested the deportation force he once called for may not come to fruition. in akron, there was no sign of moderati moderation. he vowed to build the wall and extreme vetting. as for the immigration speech he planned to give in colorado, his campaign scrapped that. >> sara, thank you. as for trump's planned immigration speech set for thursday, it is off the schedule for this week. the source says the campaign wants more time to fine tune trump's immigration policy and the language of the speech. on monday, trump defended himself saying he is not flip flopping on immigration. keep in mind, his campaign
2:33 am
manager suggested it is to be determined if trump will stick with his call for a deportation force. for now, trump saying he will come up with a firm and fair process for deportation. >> joining us to talk about the political action is brian stelter host of "reliable sources." and from washington, political reporter eugene scott. good morning. let's start with hillary clinton on jimmy kimmel, brian. a couple of days fund raising on the west coast. trying to sit down and seem comfortable and trying to seem healthy in light of the conspiracies. the pickle jar moment is the marquee moment. let's play the pickle jar moment. >> are you in good health? >> well, this has become one of their themes. you take my pulse while i'm talking to you. >> okay.
2:34 am
>> make sure i'm alive. >> oh, my god. there's nothing there. >> back in october the national enquirer said i would be dead in six months. with every breath i take, i feel like -- >> you have a new lease on life. >> yeah. i don't know. i don't know why they are saying this. i think on the one hand it's part of the wacky strategy. just say all these crazy things and maybe you can get some people to believe you. >> his doctor said he had the best medical examination he has ever seen in a human being. >> yeah. i saw that. >> can you open this jar of pickles? this has not been tampered with. >> brian stelter, i don't know if opening a jar of pickles
2:35 am
helps you become president of the united states. this is a widespread conspiracy theory of her health. >> obviously they thought ahead to this. this was an opportunity for her to dismiss and refute lies all over the internet about her health. because she had a health scare in 2012, there are conspiracy theories saying she is secretly ill or some suggest she is near death and it is being covered up. this is crazy. because there is a grain of truth to it and frankly she hadn't addressed it. not in the public light and out fund raising privately. this was an important moment for her to address it and address it with humor. a lot of reporters would like to interview her, kimmel had the chance. >> the kernel of truth is this, she had a health scare a couple of years ago where she fell and had a concussion and fell and
2:36 am
had a blood clot. wore these funny glasses. they have taken this into crazy land. >> to an extreme place. you have to wonder if she is bringing up trump's health. she said i don't talk about trump's health. all we heard about his health is a one-page letter from a physici physician. it seemed riddled with errors. it was a strange letter. clinton's campaign has not pointed to that. on kimmel, there was an opportunity to point to it. for the times, trump's spokesperson said if she wants to give up her health records, he will give up his. it is a standoff. >> something else brought up during the kimmel interview. the subject of the e-mails. about 15,000 e-mails and
2:37 am
documents from her time at the state department. that ensures we will talk about this at least until election day. she did poke fun at it. here is a clip from kimmel. >> i would be terrified if my e-mails were released. >> jimmy, my e-mails are so boring. >> mine are. >> i'm embarrassed about that. we already released 30,000 plus. what's a few more? >> you are not concerned there is something that donald trump is able to use against you? >> he makes up stuff to use against me. if he would stick with reality, i would not have a worry in the world. >> have you ever sent him an e-mail? >> no. >> you have not. okay. that would be some plot twist to this. >> i think i have missed that opportunity. >> so eugene, again, as she did with questions about her health, she is downplaying accusations
2:38 am
here using humor to suggest that there really isn't something to the story. we have been talking about her e-mails for months. a lot of o'connco of inconsister use of a private server. will this continue to dog her? >> it could daunt her on election day. as much as she tried to joke about it, this is not a laughing matter to voters who have concerns about her honesty and transparency. i'm sure her critics will hound her for more investigations and more questions trying to see what she did that the trump campaign is suggesting which is illegal and compromises integrity. >> eugene, i wanted to ask you something about what donald trump talked about on the stump in akron, ohio.
2:39 am
making this pitch again for african-american voters. under democrat presidents, you get nothing. you get nothing. and i am your better bet. listen to what he said to voters last night. give me your thoughts on the other side. >> our government has totally failed our african-american friends, our hispanic friends and the people of our country period. the democrats have failed completely in the inner cities. you could go to war zones in countries that we're fighting and it's safer than living in some of our inner cities. they're run by the democrats. what the hell do you have to lose? give me a chance. i'll straighten it out. >> that's the second time on the stump we heard him make this
2:40 am
direct appeal to african-american voters with whom he is polling at 1%. >> very much so. there is truth to what he said. many black and hispanic voters are disappointed with the democratic party. many black and brown voters experience poverty rates and live in communities that are above the national average. what donald trump hasn't done is shown how being under republican leadership has improved the quality of life for black and brown voters. it is not like democrats were in charge. if donald trump wants to win the black and brown vote, assuming he wants to win the black and brown vote, is give details and address the issues that they communicated of what concern us most. >> there are issues in inner cities, but the picture trump paints, it is devoid of any issue at all.
2:41 am
i wonder if it comports to the reality that americans face all over the country and what they see in the cities and areas. is the country as badly off as he contends it is. >> a lot of people saying those comments seem to look down upon people in minority communities. brian stelter and eugene scott, thank you. >> i love it you get up early for us. from politics to money. quiet in stocks this morning. futures are slightly higher. averages near record highs here. the true test is when janet yellen speaks at the conference of central bankers. will the fed raise rates? stocks in europe and asia are mixed. oil is down. wells fargo fined millions of dollars for charging student loan borrowers illegal fees. the consumer protection bureau
