9:00 am
because we can't keep the house, i've got to go find a job, but it's going to be okay. he believed it would be okay. he said i'm going down with uncle frank down to wilmington. there's jobs down here. i'll come home every weekend, but i'll be back in a year and we'll bring everybody down. looking back on it as a young adult, i thought that must have been hard for him to tell me and my brothers. but what must have been harder is to walk into my grand pop's pantry and say ambrose, the father of four men, four boys and my mother, and swallow your pride and say can you take care of jean and the kids for a year, but i promise i'll pay you back. from that moment on, even though i was in fourth grade when we moved, i spent a lot of time going back home to scranton, my dad would say -- at first i
9:01 am
didn't understand it, but he'd repeat all the time what you guys feel in your bones. he'd say, joey, a job is about a lot more than a paycheck. it's about your dignity. it's about respect. it's about your place in the community. it's about who you are. my grandfather finnegan, joey, remember, nobody, nobody is better than you. you can do anything anyone else can do. you've heard that from our families. our parents meant it. we learned about resilience. we learned that success is not about whether you get knocked down, it's about how quickly you get up. that's who we are. we get up. we don't break. we don't bend. we get up. that was my neighbor.
9:02 am
that's your neighborhood and that's who the hell we are. look what you did. you got back up. you're now selling 17 million cars a year! made in america! the most ever! you're making the best damn cars in the world again. you are the most productive workers. that's not joe biden pro labor, that is a simple natural fact. american workers are three times as productive by every study as asian workers are. [ cheers and applause ] >> i'm so sick and tired -- i know i'm not supposed to get angry, but i'm so sick and tired of hearing people like trump and the chamber of commerce, the national chamber talking about we get paid too much. give me a break. give me a break. this is a guy born with a silver spoon in his mouth that now he's
9:03 am
choking on because his foot is in his mouth along with a spoon. [ cheers and applause ] >> a message to all you kids, don't make any excuse for where you're from or who you are! don't make any excuse for our insistence that we get paid a fair wage. that's why i like this guy behind me. by the way, i know some of you are mad at hillary. i know some of you look at me and say, let me tell you something, man, she gets it and she never yields, she does not break. she stands up. you know what i like about them both the most? they know how to spell the word union, u-n-i-o-n, union.
9:04 am
they know why we're who we are. they know who built the middle class. hillary clinton was the co-author of -- co-sponsor of the car check legislation. by the way, this stuff about us building a middle class. it doesn't just come from joe biden and hillary and ted and tim, it's a fact. everybody is beginning to figure it out, all these major, major think tanks are now beginning to figure it out. there's an outfit called -- there's an economic research institute called the economic policy institute. they put out a 57-page report that wonks like mi me end up reading. the headline in the report says "union decline lowers wages for non-union workers." remember how the chamber of commerce always go out to the
9:05 am
non-union worker and say the reason why you're not making more is because those union guys. they blame us. the only reason they had any benefits is because of unions, even though they're a none union. this report, 57 pages. i commend it to the press. here is the conclusion of the paper. it says, if organized labor was as strong today as it was in 19 1979, the whole country would be doing better. it says non-union workers would be making on average $2,700 a year more on average, if unions were as strong as they were. ladies and gentlemen, we should be growing the labor movement. trump and the chamber of commerce in the last 12 years have declared war on labor's
9:06 am
house. ted strickland knows it, hillary knows it. that's why she led car check fight. the vice president just brought up donald trump while he's stumping for hillary clinton in warren, ohio. guess who else is stumping in ohio right now? one donald trump. hi everyone, i'm ashleigh banfield. i'm going to swap you over to wilmington, ohio, where donald trump is starting his second major appearance of the day. let's listen in to what he has to say. >> we're not going to do it anymore, folks. we've been doing it for a long time. the media political complex that has bled this country dry has to be replaced by a government of, by and for the people. i will ensure that every american is protected equally and honored equally.
9:07 am
we will reject bigotry and hatred and oppression in all its forms and seek a new future of security, prosperity and opportunity, a future built on our common culture and values as one american people. i'm asking for your vote is i can be your champion in the white house. i will be your champion. we will fight for victory, we will fight for real deals, we will fight for our vets. we're going to be fighting for a long. we're going to be fighting. believe me, we're going to be fighting.
9:08 am
we're going to show the whole world who can't believe what happened to our country that america is back bigger, better and stronger than ever before. and in coming back, your jobs are coming back, believe me. to every parent who dreams for their children and to every child who dreams for their future, i say these words to you today. i am with you. i will fight for you, and i will win for you. we will all win together. we will make america strong again. we will make america safe again. we will make america prosperous again.
9:09 am
we will make america great again. >> and this is usually how donald trump ends his rallies, the famous line now emblazoned on hats, "make america great again," in wilmington, ohio, a huge audience greeting him there for the fourth machlk major event in just 24 hours. i don't know how he keeps up this pace. this is pretty remarkable. it was just yesterday he was supposed to be touching down in a foreign country at this very moment. since that time he's had a meeting with a foreign leader. he's had a major immigration speech last night. he's done the american legion this morning and now this rally in wilmington. my colleague, cnn's phil mattingly is at this event to keep us up to speed a little bit, what was said when we were on the joe biden event? we're hopscotching a lot of them. i don't want to miss the messages. give me the highlights.
9:10 am
>> reporter: what we saw was, at least at the top, donald trump's regular stump speech. not quite as aggressive as what we heard last night in arizona. yesterday really a day of two different trumps depending on where he was. he did get into a lot of the themes that we heard last night in arizona. both in talking to people at this rally before donald trump started and listening to him as he was talking, they're very excited about what they heard in arizona. there's a lot of concern in the state of ohio about whether donald trump can poll the number of republicans who needs to win in this state. at least here in clinton county, they're excited about donald trump, ashley. >> phil mattingly, i'm hearing that famous song behind you, that signals the handshakes and the wrap-up. i guarantee you it's not the wrap-up of the message today. i'll let you continue your work, watching what's happening there. in the meantime i want to bring in shawn spicer, the communications director and chief strategist for the republican national committee.
9:11 am
you have been busy. >> not as by si as donald trump, four speeches in 24 hours. >> pretty remarkable. >> he spoke in mexico, gave the immigration speech last night, got up this morning and spoke to the american legion and now is having a rally. >> i need a nap. >> tires you out trying to keep up with his schedule. >> enthusiasm unquestionably. you see these rallies and there's massive enthusiasm. but the message was different. he didn't say the things when he was with the mexican president. there's a narrative that has come out, the tale of two trumps. he says one thing when he's with them and make sure that's a positive photo op and then comes back and throws that really strong -- >> but let's follow that. everybody is different in different audiences. when the president of the united states has a very solemn event, he acts solemn. when he's on martha's vineyard and doing certain things, he's
9:12 am
relaxed. people are different in different environments. that's different than changing your message. yesterday when he was with president nieto, he looked presidential. when he was at a rally, he was fired up, speaking the the group. when he was at the american legi legion, he was talking about the need to reform the va, in sharp contrast to what is interesting to me. when you're looking at the state polls or the national polls, not just the crowd size and enthusiasm at the rallies, all these polls are closing in major ways to donald trump's ways. every single one o of them is trending in his direction to the point that "the l.a. times" have him up to, most have him closing the gap between five, seven, more points. that's at the state level, too. >> you must have been thrilled with the fox poll that shows that sizable lead hillary clinton was enjoying after the democratic convention has shrunk. two points between them now. >> all of them. >> while that's great and while
9:13 am
i'm sure that boys not only the rnc but trumps folks who are wo feverishly, you still have the swing state polls which are very troubling for you. >> john berman and i are pats fans. we know how to come back in the fourth quarter and win a game. that's where we are. you'd always rather be up than down. no question. look where the wind is, every poll, the wind is at our back. you look at ohio, tied or up, florida, tied or up. >> no, that's not true. that's not true at all. in florida she's ahead by nine. michigan seven, virginia 16. pennsylvania she's ahead by eight. granted some of those polls are a few weeks old. >> the one that just came out, fau has her down two to trump in florida. if you want to cherry-pick polls, you can find him down. ohio, pennsylvania, michigan,
9:14 am
each trending in his direction. >> while they're a couple weeks old, you look at the polls and start plaining your campaign appearances based on, gees, we're struggling a bit in pennsylvania, in florida. why then would campaign appearances be in georgia, blood red, texas, blood red and washington state superduper blue. those are not worrisome questions. >> great question. first of all, the poll that came out in florida, not the two-week old one, two days ago, clinton down 41-43 to trump. when you look at the recent polls he's trending forward or up. second question, guess what most of those places are that you mentioned? texas, that's where we raised a good chunk of our money from. look where hillary clinton has been, the hamptons, connecticut, martha's vineyard, nantucket, beverly hills, rode island. she hasn't been in a
9:15 am
battleground state or public place for a long time. >> she was in ohio yesterday. >> he went to a foreign country yesterday -- >> that's important. she was just in ohio yesterday. >> she's been in one. i was too confused whether she was in beverly hills or nantucket. he he went to a foreign country and gave a press conference. he's engaging with the press, talking about his ideas. you mentioned four stops in four days. she's in hiding. >> let me ask you about something that happened since the meeting in mexico and the announcement of policy last night in arizona. it somewhat backfired with some prominent hispanic community members. one of the leaders of the latino partnership for alternative principles said he's out. he didn't talk about treating people in a fair and humane way.
9:16 am
a member of the trump hispanic advisory council, jacob monte also resigned, same complaints. these are people who were in tlrks hanging in. they were with him all the way until last night. >> i think we love their support back. we want more people to join this effort than less. some people have hoped he'll do something. what he was last night was consistent. he said everything he said last night. >> they said the opposite. in the meeting he had he was softening. they say that's not what happened last night. >> i understand what they said. he said exactly what he has said from the get-go. he's been 100% consistent in terms of building a wall, dealing with the folks in this country. what he said last night was consistent. i understand some people believe he was going to say something different. >> deportation force which he told joe and mika ended up being
9:17 am
deportation task force. that's different than 11 million have got to go. >> the result is the same. there's nothing equivocal about the fact that we have to deal with the people in the country illegally. he's changed nothing. he talked about the mechanism might be late bit different to understand how we can talk about the current enforcement of i.c.e. thats is being tapped into now. he's not changed his position on what's going to happen, how we'll secure the border, how we'll deal with the individuals not here legally. all of that is consistent. it's hillary clinton frankly that hasn't laid out a plan or talked to the press about her plan who has done the flip-flops. she's been for deportation tax force, she's against it. she's for kicking people out of the country and then against it. 100% inconsistent depending on the way the wind blows. trump has been 100% consistent with how he'll handle all these issues. >> lest you thought he would
9:18 am
have nice quiet labor day weekend. we'll tap you next week and get reaction to that. i hope you get at least a picnic or something in. >> maybe a burger. >> you can bring one for us. thanks, sean. nice to have you as always. coming up, donald trump may be firing up supporters of his immigration stance. hillary clinton is firing back. she's doing it in a real tough way. she says his trip to mexico was a, quote, failure. she's saying his deportation tactics will tear families apart. we'll talk about that in just a moment live from the campaign moment live from the campaign trail.

9:22 am
last night in phoenix, it was textbook trump, total fire. take a look. >> on day one we will begin working on an impenetrable, tall, powerful, southern border wall. >> our politics executive editor
9:23 am
mark preston is on the left of your screen. political analyst jackie kucinich in the middle. and phillip thump from "the washington post" on the right. the positions have nothing to do with their ideologies. it's been described as trump is keeping the foot on the gas from last night's big announcements of policy, the ten-point layout this morning with the veterans. just now as he was wrapping up in ohio, mark, do we expect this to be the definitive message, no more changes, no more strange softenings and hardenings and kindness and love and good people, just what we heard last night will be repeated? >> let me definitivity say we have no idea. this campaign has been dictated by that -- trump himself in an interview this morning said, in fact, what are we talking about, he did soften his stance last night. however, if you were to look at the first part of the day where he went to mexico, he talked about inclusion, talked about mutual goals, he talked about
9:24 am
making mexico great again and making america great again and we're all in it together and a few hours later getting on an airplane, going to arizona and starting off his speech saying mexico will pay for the wall, believe me they will, they just don't know it yet. who knows? >> to that, jackie, he said that the paying for the wall didn't come up between the mexican president. and the president from mexico said indeed it did, saying i ain't paying for the wall, paraphrasing. here is vincente fox on "knnew y ksh this morning. >> it's incredible how a man can play with public opinions on both sides. he comes to mexico, plays totally different music, very diplomatic, very easy and soft
9:25 am
ta talk, very none-content, no content at all. and he comes back to the states and comes back to his very old now message relying his whole campaign on that wall. it's incredible. >> jackie, sean spicer with the rnc just said yes, because when you're with different groups you have different addresses and different tone. that's not unusual for any candidate. >> all you need to see is how many members of his hispanic advisory council are dropping off today -- >> only one that i know of. >> there's three and cbs is reporting that half of them might go by the end of the day. so there is reaction. that's not normal. he doesn't usually give a speech and lose a bunch of supporters. that's not the direction he wants to go. so, yes, sometimes you do -- politicians do do that, but i think how drastic it was.
9:26 am
he looked at the mexican president and said we're friends, it's great, we're going to work through this, we're going to negotiate. >> wonderful people. >> wonderful people. then a couple hours later he made him look foolish, frankly. he said they don't know they're paying for it yet, but they are. no wonder he's so angry. >> phillip, let me ask you about something else that was said last night. a lot of people tend to think immigration immediately from a southern border. he also addressed who gets in, whether they're on a plane, a boat or on foot. he talked a lot about sort of the ideological certifications, et cetera. have a listen to what he actually said when he was in phoenix last night about vetting. vetting would be immigrants and what would be asked of these immigrants. have a listen. >> another reform involves new screening tests for all applicants that include, and this is so important, especially if you get the right people, and we will get the right people, an
9:27 am
ideological certification to make sure that those we are admitting to our country share our values and love our people. >> i am going to admit it's hard to find out if somebody really loves you. that was my whole college mission. it didn't work. as fun and games as it tends to be when people want to criticize the ideological tests donald trump talks about, there are a lot of people who are bloody angry at those who have come in here, get arrested and end up having material support for terrorism as their charge. what he's saying, he may not articulate it the way everyone wants to hear it, but it bothers a lot of people. >> it's important to distinguish. we have the situation where there are people seeking refugee status who it's hard for us to do background checks on because as the fbi director has said under testimony that we don't have a background mission in
9:28 am
syria like we did in iraq. >> by the way, it's happened in europe. they've been wolves in sheep's clothing, and they end up being bombers. >> absolutely. he blended his december call to ball all muslims with his immigration call. he's talking about extreme vetting to weed people out. in another point in the speech he said he'd take the h 1b visa status, he sort of said that was going to be what his filter was for allowing people in the country. he didn't provide specifics on what it was that was going to be the qualifications that was required to enter the united states. if you're a trump supporter, this extreme vetting concept, it's a very '90s term. you take it on faith there's a way to do this that seems impractical. >> as somebody that works here for many years under an h 1v, it was hard. i have a unique skill that was very clearly outlined.
9:29 am
it was very, very hard already to get in on that vees sachlt it took me months and months and months. thank you all three of you. programming note for you this sunday. a fareed zakaria gps, fareed will talk with president obama and talk to him about what is driving trump supporters. all that and more this sunday, 10:00 eastern on cnn. coming up next, pre launch, a test goes very wrong and is the result. the pictures, it's not a cloudy day. it is smoke. is live, the aftermath of massive explosion on the launch pad at cape canaveral this morning. it's a spacex rocket. find out what was on board and what this means for the astronauts who take off from that launch pad. again, florida, a tropical
9:30 am
storm now headed that way. is it likely to turn into a hurricane? it's got a name, hermine. just how bad might she be? turn the trips you have to take, into one you'll never forget. expedia plus rewards. earn points on over one million hotels, flights, and packages.
9:31 am
9:32 am
9:33 am
i we worked with pg&eof to save energy because wenie. wanted to help the school. they would put these signs on the door to let the teacher know you didn't cut off the light. the teachers, they would call us the energy patrol. so they would be like, here they come, turn off your lights! those three young ladies were teaching the whole school about energy efficiency. we actually saved $50,000. and that's just one school, two semesters, three girls. together, we're building a better california.
9:34 am
breaking news for you. brand new video just coming in of the spacex rocket explosion at the launch pad it was on in cape canaveral, florida. look very closely, you may be able to spot there is quite a plume of smoke. you can see it for miles. they said you could actually feel the impact in the office buildings. they certainly heard the booms. take a look at the pictures.
9:35 am
>> so the rocket actually was supposed to take a satellite into space on saturday. this was a test fire of it, and now, as you can see, from the close up view, that rocket is functionally destroyed, if not completely destroyed. wow. look at that. rachel crane joins me along with retired astronaut captain mark kelly. rachel, what happened? >> at this point it's very early in the investigation. spacex only revealing this has been an anomaly. we mow the vehicle as well as the payload has been lost. as you pointed out, this was a planned static test fire in anticipation of that launch that was planned for this saturday. these types of test fires are quite usual when you have a launch coming up. we know that no injuries occurred because it was planned.
9:36 am
as per standard protocol, no one would be on the launch pad. as you pointed out, this was a loud explosion. people could feel it there. we spoke to a person in an office building. >> several miles away. do you know how many miles? >> we're not on the ground so we don't know how far. the person we spoke to was at the kennedy space center. he said it felt as though a mack truck was collide being the building he was in. >> this happens all the time, they take cargo up into space. this cargo was unique. it would apply to a lot of people. every people in america knows facebook. tell me what was on board. >> facebook was one of the partners in this satellite. it was intended to bring internet to remote parts of the world and africa. that's because about 57% of the world is not online. they don't have access to internet. so facebook is one of the many
9:37 am
companies like google and one web that is trying to bring those people online. this is not facebook's first explosion. they had one about a year ago on one of the cargo missions headed to the international space station. this was also the same rocket, a falcon 9 that exploded this time. >> i want to jump over to mark kelly. i know you've seen some of the pictures and seen the scant news we have right now about what's happened. it makes us all wonder, gosh, if we're still having these kind of catastrophic explosions, spacex is supposed to put astronauts up to the international space station. that's the contract they have from nasa. does this derail that? >> well, first of all, let me say doing this stuff is really difficult. if it was easy, every country in the planet would do it. spacex has a fantastic record of launching the falcon 9. this would have been the 26th launch. there was was mishap in flight, but very, very sophisticated and
9:38 am
generally safe operation. these things are hard to do, and accidents will happen. what they'll have to do is take a step back and figure out why this happened and then change their procedures or change the hardware to make sure it doesn't happen again. launching people is another step up. it's this rocket, the falcon 9 that will soon be taking u.s. astronauts and crew members to the international space station. >> as an astronaut, does that not make you a little nervous? i get it that tests don't always go as planned. maybe you push the envelope a little more when it's a test when you don't have human payload. this must give you some pause. >> they do a static test on the launch pad before launching falcon 9. this is the kind of test that would certainly happen before a crew flietd to the space station. when you're dealing with liquid oxygen and kerosene as the propellant and the oxidizer, it's a very hazard douse
9:39 am
operation. there's a lot of stuff that can go wrong. they'll figure out what happened here and make sure it doesn't happen again. but that doesn't -- it's a dangerous business. flying rockets into space to get a payload, this satellite weighed 12,000 pounds. to get that 12,000 pounds moving at 25 times the speed of sound is a really difficult thing to do. spacex needs to be really proud of their record, but also needs to fix whatever went wrong here to make sure it doesn't happen again, and they will. >> it's why the colloquial expression out there rocket science is what it is. you guys are amazing and you're also heroes. this is scary, dangerous stuff. captain kelly, good to have you. hope we can talk on a lighter note next time. my thanks to rachel crane as well. next, the spacex disaster isn't the only breaking news in florida. florida is really struggling against this one, folks. it's a live picture from tampa
9:40 am
right now. sandy and soggy beach. the west coast of florida, of that state getting slammed by tropical storm hermine. that storm is likely to turn into a hurricane. just think about the last time you heard about a hurricane in florida. it's more than ten years, believe it or not. hurricane warning has been issued. now much of the state of georgia is also worried about the state of emergency there. we'll have an update on that in just a moment. i also want to give you a reminder of a cnn special report that will take an in-depth look of the life and times of the two major party candidates for president, both hillary clinton and donald trump. get an up-close look at these candidates. it will all start at 8:00 p.m. monday, that's labor day. don't miss it. here is a quick look just to wet your whistle. >> i accept your nomination. >> -- for the presidency of the united states. >> we are stronger together in charting a course toward the future. >> the essential donald trump. >> i love you, and we will make

tropical storm. so if you're unluke i can enough to be in that little window from apalachicola to about st. mark's, you will feel hurricane-force winds. if you're anywhere away from that, you're only going to feel a tropical storm. what you're going to feel anyway is a storm surge of up to eight feet. what we have here is a day and a half full of wind that blows the water this way. that has been blowing the water to the north. kind of like if you try to cool off your coffee by blowing on the one side, you blow your coffee to the other side. the level of the coffee is higher on one side than the other. the level of the water is higher here than down to the south. it will be sucking some of that water away from the south gulf and pushing it into the northern gulf. with the wind pushing it into the estuaries, we'll get surges of five to eight feet. that's the real threat that the governor was talking about. it's life and death, when you talk about that much water in
9:48 am
your town or in your home. i lived this, experienced this with hurricane dennis. st. mark's had about 15 feet of water in downtown and people were floating around in boats. boats were floating out of the marinas and landing everywhere. that's the story for the first 12 hours or even 24 hours for now. then the storm gets into georgia and the carolinas. it could really churn the coast here, make situation any can't rip currents for the entire weekend and people want to go play because it's labor day. then all of a sudden, it gets up here in new york, at least close to new york and it just stops. that's two days, 48 hours' worth of no movement. can it wobble to the left, can it wobble to the east? sure. spaghetti models in pretty good agreement it's going to go across here. my joke was, this has turned into to angel hair. we lost spaghetti because that's going in every possible direction. it could go left, could go right. the models are completely
9:49 am
disagreement when it bumps into a front that's up here. no one yet knows what it's going to do. if you are anywhere from the cape hatteras area all the way up to boston, just because it's hitting florida now doesn't mean it couldn't be a hurricane again and hit the u.s. a second time. that's possible with this storm. >> if you're in your 20s now, you might have been 10 or so when rita and katrina and wilma hit. that's a big memory for a lot of people. keep an eye on it and keep us updated. chad myers, thank you for that. programming note. in our next hour governor rick scott is going the speak with cnn's wolf blitzer and talk about the hurricane preparations that are under way and just the notion that, look, it's been a long time. get those memories fired up. it's serious stuff and is life-threatening. we've been following every development in the stanford rape case. tomorrow there is a huge development. brock turner is set to get out of jail.

tomorrow brock turner is set to be released from jail. when he was a freshman at stanford, he raped a 23-year-old woman, and during the testimony he lied and he said that she consented, even though the evidence proved to a jury that she was out flat out unconscious. she was badly injured, she was bloodied, hospitalized. those were the facts. this week we have been pouring through newly released court documents and we learned the horrible state that this young woman was found in by the first responders. a stanford deputy testified that he, quote, found her lying with her knees bent up in a fetal position, her private parts exposed. in just a few hours, the man who did that to her and left her in that condition is set to be freed. three month of his sentence served, a six-month sentence was all he received. that caused a lot of consternation. dan simon joins us now to tell
9:55 am
us what's next for brock turner. >> ashleigh this is a 21-year-old who faced the possibility of 14 yoors in prison. instead he only served three month in county jail when he's released tomorrow. critics blasted the sentence saying it's no more than a slap on the wrist and vowing to recall the judge who handed it down. this is a case that began in january of 2015 when turner was accused of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman behind a dumpster outside a fraternity party. a couple of graduate students on their bicycles ultimately caught turner. in court he tried to claim this was consensual, but the jury did not buy it. this is a case that rose to national prominence after the victim's powerful impact statement. it was an emotional gut-wrenching letter and only fueled the anger over what many perceived to be a very lenient sentence. the spotlight has shifted to judge aaron persky.
9:56 am
tomorrow in san jose there will be a very large rally where writ ticks will once again call for the judge to be removed. as for turner himself, he will not be headed back to stanford. he voluntarily withdrew instead of being expelled. he'll move back to his home state of ohio where he'll have to be registered as a sex offender for the rest of his life. ashleigh. >> dan simon, thanks for that. coming up, governor mike pence will speak with cnn. stay with us. a pizza. um. something wrong? so when it comes to pain relievers, why put up with just part of a day? you want the whole thing? yes, yes! live whole. not part. aleve.
