tv Anderson Cooper 360 CNN September 13, 2016 9:00pm-10:01pm PDT
daughter ivanka was back on the campaign tonight introducing her father. take a look. >> i have three young children myself and i'm grateful daily for the means to pursue two of my dreams, being a mother and investing in a career that fulfills me. i recognize that far too few women can say the same for themselves and that i am more fortunate than most. this must change. as a society we need to create policies that champion all parents, enabling the american family to thrive. my dad agrees and he's in a unique position to do something about this problem and the numerous other problems facing tens of millions of parents and caregivers across our country. today child care is the single greatest expense for many american families even exceeding the cost of housing in much of the country.
it's depleting the hard-earned savings off men and women in the nation and disproportionately affected women. federal policies in place to benefit women were written in serve a primarily male work that no longer exists. dual income families were not the norm when the current were established. today however, women represent 47% of the u.s. labor force and in almost 2/3rds of working couples work outside of the home. 64% of these moms have kids age six and underment number of households led by single mothers has doubled in the last 30 years and approximately 2/3rds of
these women work in low wage jobs that offer neither flexibility nor benefits. my father has created a plan designed to create relief and provide options to make decisions in best interests of family. safe affordable high quality health care should not be the of a few. this has not received the atention in the policy area it deserves. hardly any intellectual energy devoted to addressing needs of families with children from birth to four years old. and little attention on how to alleviate the burdens placed on low and middle income families. at the same time the united states is the only industrialized nation in the world that does not provide new
mothers with paid maternity leave. my father's policy will give paid leave to mothers whose employers are among the u.s. benefits that don't currently offer this benefit. this is a reform of critical value and long overdue. >> ivanka introducing her father on the trail. joining me, trump campaign unveiling new policies. pushing for paid family leave. what are you learning? >> reporter: saw a pru view but essentially six weeks of paid maternity leave for employers that don't offer it. funded lieu the insurance program and would be less than most people receive through normal wages of their job. this is maternity only, not paternity but a big break from what we see republicans advocate for in the past. could meet resistance on capitol
hill, republican economists have acknowledged this but also just one component of trump's policy. also an additional child care subsidy for parents. goal to make child care more affordable for working parents and stay-at-home mom and dads. pushing for them as well. >> and ivanka back on the trail. do we expect to see more of her? >> have seen her a couple times over the last few weeks and will be part of the fundraising circuit. but unclear how prominent on the trail. has her own personal life and business but clear that trump campaign has realize she's effective tool and surrogate for him especially for events like this tailored to improve numbers among women and suburban voters. >> hillary clinton going to get back on the trail thursday
according to spokesman. recovering from pneumonia, spent the day briefing and making calls and watching someone campaign on her behalf. not just any surrogate. michelle kosinski reports. >> it's good to be back on the campaign trail. >> reporter: with that president bottom is campaigner in chief. 58% approval, better than hillary clinton or donald trump. watching polls has been eager to get out there. >> in election season you will often hear crazy stuff but i got to say this year we've been hearing a little more crazy than usual. think about wlaez happened to the republican? >> and didn't shy away with own battle with democratic nominee. >> i got whooped in and she doesn't quit. >> a tweet from the clinton
campaign, only appeared once in charlotte alongside clinton on the same day the fbi director announced wouldn't recommend charges for the e-mail use on private server. neerng one mentioned it. >> now visiting philadelphia and new york. difficult schedule, foreign tripz and u.n. meeting. >> going to have to be super delegate for her, hitting every town, going to have to spread wide and try to energize the clinton campaign. the fear for hillary clinton is low voter turnout. and barack obama has an opportunity, particularly with african-americans to help bring the numbers up in major urban centers. >> reporter: history has been tricky for presidents on the trail. george w. bush's low numbers
kept him out. organized an event but senator john mccain was awkwardly late. rond reagan was seen as hue boost to his vice president george h.w. bush as opposed to former brez eisenhower who didn't like nixon, didn't go to bat for him and he lost to jfk. bill clinton not as active as once was, president obama may be busiest campaigner of all time. >> we cannot afford to suddenly treat this like a reality show. we can't afford to act as if there's some equivalence here. >> reporter: once we see what october will bring. cnn philadelphia. >> lot to talk about tonight. joining me in a panel.
cnn political analysts, and clinton and trump supporters. >> how personal do you think this is for president obama, seeing that hillary clinton is only person really to continue his legacy? >> i think it's very important to him because of his legacy and also think it's personal. don't forget barack obama and donald trump have a history here. talk about birther, going back to that. and i think that this is someone he wants to defeat. not only because hillary clinton is so important to his legacy but also he believes it's better for the country as he was saying today. what i noticed in the speech today he said i really, really, really want hillary clinton to win. something to that effect. and i think we have to take him at his word. he's going to be out there, out there entire month of october.
>> and i mean, it is not every day that you have outgoing president with approval number like president obama does, only getting bigger as we see the candidates. 53%. >> today i'm glowing because for a long period of time saying that hillary clinton wants to be a third term of barack obama, today you saw the numbers come out where the median income in the country grown 5.2%, income for white, black, hispanic and asian-american families all grown. strongest economic growth since 1999. approval rating at 58% and one thing you can't replace is swagger that barack obama brings to the campaign trail. really ready to fight for hillary clinton and he's number one surrogate that either side has. no better campaigner that either side has. >> one thing he's trying to
convince his supporters to get as excited about hillary clinton as they were about him. can be a tough sell. >> listen, nobody is better positioned to make that case than he is. for anybody who has won the presidency twice as he has, takes enormous talent. seen what talent he has as campaigner and governing leader. as we come to the end of his second term we see how much he has to be proud of and see the policies that he's instituted are really working. that's probably the best selling point to hillary clinton. >> question is how transferrable is his popularity. and we don't really know the answer to that. what he can do is start getting people enthusiastic about hillary clinton which has been a real problem for her among democrat. >> point how the how his message is out of touch with how people feel. cites the numbers but still worse than 2007. haven't caught up.
beyond that cited 58% approval of president obama and there's another 58% of people feel economy is getting worse. feel it's going in the wrong direction. we're on the wrong track and feeling hurt. for the president to get up and say $2 gas, thanks obama. out of touch with how many americans feel. >> one of the things you can't deny. go back to 1999 last time there was democrat president to see the income growth and middle class. $2 gas is nothing to shake a hand at. and it's down to -- >> play what he said. >> donald trump says stuff every day that used to be considered
as disqualifying for being president. and yet because he says it over and over and over again, the press just gives up. well yeah, okay. they just stop. i was opposed to the war in iraq, well actually. he wasn't but they just accept it. so the bottom line is is that we cannot afford suddenly to treat this like a reality show. we can't afford to act as if there's some equivalence here. to be president you have to do your homework. and you have know what you're talking about. >> jack as trump supporter does it worry you to have president obama out there?
>> not really. you look at democratic national convention, great speakers come out to prop her up. short-term bounce. went straight down. excitement factor with trump is better. she can have rallies in local starbucks and we need football stadiums. that's the reality. >> she is still ahead if you look at numbers. still way ahead. >> one at a time. >> i like to quote the cnn poll, up two points on that, other polls show the same thing. >> but not -- >> jeff raises a valid point. for all the talk of the powerhouse surrogates that hillary clinton has out there, numbers have been tightening. >> there's a difference between tightening and donald trump winning. you can look at most recent polls that came out over this weekend, apparently hillary clinton had a very bad weekend, up five points with likely
voters and ten with registered. look at swing. and not only that but defending the -- is the republican party defending your own home state. fact that hillary clinton is running close in georgia and arizona is a problem. >> i know georgia politics very well and i don't think donald trump needs to come down there at all. mike pence has come there. advising not to come again. senators, governor, constitutional officers and state legislature, only 15 contested seats. hillary clinton come koun and spend your money there. >> have a break. and as clinton campaign gretting out of the deplorable comment, take a look at duelling ads

donald trump has just wrapped up a short speech in pennsylvania, spoke about the family leave plan after being introduced by his daughter ivanka. sarah murray is standing by. >> reporter: it was interesting ven venue, i think a lot of folks wanted a rally rather than a economic policy speech. but donald trump layed a lot of
what his campaign teased earlier. it is very clear they want to try to improve their numbers with women and suburban voters and hope to do that through some of these more family and child friendly policies. that includes larger subsidy to offset cost of child care. but also includes a call for more paid maternity for women. it was interesting so see donald trump expects to get bipartisan support for that. haven't seen that on capitol hill in the past few years. he had ivanka up here to make the pitch. she shares the personal stories shed read to inspire her to get involved in this. and it is very clear that campaign believes she clear the campaign believes she can maybe sell women and sell suburban voters on her dead maybe better than he can himself.
>> and choosing pennsylvania is no accident to do this thing. >> reporter: they believe they can compete in these rust belt states potentially better than they can in some states republicans have targeted in the past out west. fact we're in a suburb of philadelphia, it's indication the trump campaign thinks this is where they need to be to win women and suburban voters. how is that hillary clinton is leading him in that state and obviously the campaign is hoping to turn that around. >> it is interesting to hear donald trump proposing something we haven't heard republicans champions. >> even helps people who don't pay taxes because they receive the earned income tax credit. all the rebates. his plan reaches down and expands to include another money
for child care. novel plan from republican, helps middle income earners and low. revolutionary from a republican. >> how much is reaching out to women voters and how much does donald trump organization. >> it's about reaching out to women voters. likes to say hillary clinton doesn't have a plan. she does. for 12 weeks paid maternity leave. the trump organization says give leave to men and women and proud of family-friendly environment. when pressed about when the policy started, they declined to respond about when it came into effect. we don't know. that's their current policy. eight weeks. >> i think this is example of how preposterous the campaign
has become. this is a very serious issue that hillary clinton hasz been at center of for her entire life. this is not a serious substitute proposal. it's not a broad proposal. if anything it is a tiny -- covers a tiny fraction of people and use money they themselves paid into the unemployment insurance department to cover it. it's window dressing. next thing trump will say is he's for a path to citizenship or health care. >> he's going to talk about the new york economic club and build on this and fill in blanks. i as father of two daughters think it's great. as ivanka said, women in the workplace is about half the jobs and can't poo poo it away.
>> but clearly donald trump has made a lot of statements about women as businessman on the howard stern show and elsewhere, a lot of women have been upset and people have been upset. does this until youify that? >> i think if the trump organization has had a pattern of discriminating against women we would all know about it by now. hear in fact they were promoted. >> i'm talking about repulsive public comments. >> but the aidea, he's putting substantive ideas while opponent it calling deplorables. >> paying about i eliminating unemployment insurance fraud. that's not enough. >> serious money. >> nobody listens when you're talking over each other. >> i know. that is not enough to pay for this maternity benefit.
>> how much is hillary clinton's going to cost? >> the truth is we don't know what either one is going to cost. you're right about this. we don't know. she says would pay by raising taxes on the wealthy. okay. fine but how much fraud will you be able to find to pay for this policy? >> let's look at that -- >> at the most congressman you can take a state like florida, the way he's paying forward through this insurance fund when people get fired and hard-working americans and need this, robbing peter to pay paul but can i just finish? in a state like florida, you don't get percentage of your wages, woman working won't get percentage but unemployment insurance money. in state like florida most is $275 a week. >> there's government accountability ofsz said 125 billion in improper payments and expects revenue to increase as
did under reagan. >> so we're guessing. >> for generations politicians say we'll pay for this eliminating waste and fraud. >> those are politicians. >> that's ridiculous, he's the same as everybody else. you can't eliminate enough to pay for all of this. >> one of the things he did say is this is part of a comprehensive tax reform package. as he speaks to the new york economic club and continues to talk about, i think it's fair yes question and i think he'll answer. >> is it odd there isn't a package -- lot of candidates would have had it months ago. we have to have a break. duelling attack ads running. pouncing on basket of deplorables and heshe's firing

routine audit. should point out according to his attorneys, taxes from 2002 to 2008 have been audited already and it's over. asked about it on new day. are you calling him a liar? >> taking his word for it. >> and taking hillary clinton's word that she was overheated or had pneumonia or talking about the press again. running against a clinton and going to challenge somebody's veracity? >> one thing donald trump certainly not shy about. we should talk about. which we'll talk about ahead with the panel. also he's not provided more details about his charitable giving through his foundation. he has -- he does regret talking about the four corporate bankruptcy he's filed for. bragged about them actually last
september on the debate stage. >> hunds of companies, hundreds of deals. used the law four times. made -- a tremendous thing. i'm in business. i did a very good job. >> for him but not for some of the people who worked on the projects that later when belly up. they are not the only ones who came up short when doing business with trump. jessica snyder reports. >> he put so many good contractor out of business. >> i don't care if he's dp or donald duck, right is right and wrong is wrong and i have to stand up for myself. >> donald trump had basically decided what subcontractors would work in atlantic city which would not. >> they are the voices skeptical of donald trump and his promises of prosperity. >> if you went against him he simply put a list out and said these are bad guys and everybody else is a good guy. >> and you guys were on that list. >> we were on the list. >> and did you ever get work on atlantic city again? >> never. >> but donald trump has framed much of his campaign on his
stellar record as the businessman. >> i'm running to give back to this country which has been so very good to me. jobs, jobs, jobs. >> reporter: the three small business owners we just heard from say they're contracts with trump initially looked promising. in the end the deals turned disastrous. >> it was one of those things, it's donald trump, what could go wrong? >> stephen and sister are second generation owners of triad, won the bid to install every toilet partition inside the casino's bathrooms, largest contract their family business had ever landed. >> we bill a hundred thousand a month that's a really good month for us. and this was almost 300,000 in one contract. it was a big job. it was great.
>> but as triad's workers wrapped up the project, talk started swirling that contractors weren't getting paid. when filed for bankruptcy triad was left with a claim in court and ended up with a pay out of just $70,000. >> it is hard for me to talk about it but he put all four of us to work. >> jenkins gets emotional when they remember how their father struggled to keep the business standing. >> he was distraught. he's watching something he built his whole life start to slip through his fingers. >> a generous loan saved the pennsylvania company. >> he didn't go to to bank for a loan. he borrowed it off a friend. >> i respect a lot about him. i think he has a capacity to take the very complicated and simplify it. which i think is a hallmark of a good ceo. i think he has that ability. on the other hand i also think
he's vindictive, nasty and his words or actions have no repercussions. >> nat spent years in litigation with trump. he respects trump's shrewd business tactics but harbors resentment of what is cost his business. records show trump tried to cut short his lease in trump tower in manhattan blaming the poor quality of the merchandise. he sued and said the legal teams buried him for years. >> he was hoping by sending me a letter that a 20 something-year-old was roll over and say go ahead. i'm not going to fight you. you're donald trump. he was wrong. i think i spent over a million dollars in litigation with him. the bottom line was i would have much happier if he would have left me alone and simply left me to do my business. to him it was sport and to me it was my life.
>> we'll make it very, very good for our companies, for our small businesses and for people who want to survive and do well in our country. >> paul scoffs at trump's words, the philadelphia cabinetry company founded by his grandfather was forced to file for bankruptcy because of trumps' talentry tactic. >> we had already worked for three gc's and every one of them lived up to his word until donald trump came to atlantic city. he was the first one who told a bunch of small contractors i don't think i'm going pay you anymore money and if you don't like it, you can sue me. >> friel said his father did try to recoup the money trump owned the company for building registration desks. eventually gave up and trump seemed to hold a grudge. friel says he believed his father's company was blocked
from any future atlantic city casino projects. >> i think it surprised him the most that donald trump has blackballed him. even though we had an excellent name in atlantic city. worked in four of the casinos. that he had the ability to tell people you don't want this guy working for you. >> now he says he's speaking out to honor his dead father. >> he would say paul do this for us. i was the one involved in the business. >> donald trump would not respond to our request for comment about these small business owners but he promised big if not vague things in cleveland. >> i have made billions of dollars in business making deals. now i'm going make our country rich again. >> he would say paul do this. let the country know what kind of man this is, he would say. >> and you're doing that. >> and i'm doing. >> jessica schneider joins me
now. donald trump has been trying to present himself as champion of the middle class on the campaign trail. did they have anything to say about that? >> that is exactly why paul, the last man we interviewed there is speaking out. his fam actually didn't want him to tell their story. but he says he wants people know that he believes it was donald trump's shrewd business tactics that forced his company to file for bankruptcy. so paul friel and sister and brother who run triad say will be voting for hillary clinton. they have that deep distaste for donald trump. but nat hyman, the jewelry store owner tells me he appreciates in some respects what he calls donald trump's savvy business tactics although he does say in the end he would find it hard to cast a ballot for donald trump come november. >> all right. thanks very much. talk to the panel. take a look at duelling campaign ads based on hillary clinton's basket of deplorables comment and how both campaigns are trying to capitalize on the
remarks. well that's nice! and checking your score won't hurt your credit. oh!

now that fedex has helped us we could focus on bigger issues, like our passive aggressive environment. we're not passive aggressive. hey, hey, hey, there are no bad suggestions here... no matter how lame they are. well said, ann. i've always admired how you just say what's in your head, without thinking. very brave. good point ted. you're living proof that looks aren't everything. thank you. welcome. so, fedex helped simplify our e-commerce business and this is not a passive aggressive environment. i just wanted to say, you guys are doing a great job. what's that supposed to mean? fedex. helping small business simplify e-commerce.
called half of trump's supporters a basket of deplorables. golden line for an attack ad. trump pounced on it. take a
look. >> speaking to wealth donor, hillary clinton called tens of millions of americans deplorable. >> you could put half of trump's supporters into what i call a basket of deplorables. its racists, sexists, homophobi homophobics, skein xenophobics, you name it. >> people like you, you and you deplorable. do you know what's deplorable? hillary clinton viciously demonizing hard-working people like you. >> should point out her campaign and she came out the next day said she regretted saying half. hillary clinton is firing back with an ad that features something mr. trump said just yesterday on the campaign trail using it against him take a look. >> you can't leave this nation if you have such a low opinion for its citizens. how stupid are the people of the country?
>> we're building a wall. he's a mexican. >> you got to see this guy. oh i don't know what i said. i don't remember. you're living in poverty. your schools are no good. you have no jobs. what in the hell do you have to lose? >> chief political journalist. and david axelrod, and cnn political analyst kirsten powers. is this wise to continue this line? >> well the last thing they want is for donald trump to somehow after the last year seize the high ground as they turn the corner. one of the reasons that he's trailing among college educated particularly women is because of the tenor of his campaign. and they have made a lot of progress with this hillary clinton. she's leading among college educated whites. mitt romney carried them by 14%. so they can't let this turn because she made this mistake on friday. so they thought this -- they
want to seize the high ground back and not allow donald trump somehow to become the sort of ashiter of civility >> it is interesting that donald trump is demanding an apology from hillary clinton, which is something he has never apologized for anything. >> donald trump has said he regretted certain things. >> but never -- >> -- what it was. so he didn't apologize to the khan family for example. >> although it was interesting in the commander in chief forum he was asked about the regret thing and he said well, yeah regret but i was running against 16 other guys and i had to get past them. so really he -- i think it sounded like he regretted regretting. >> i think his advisors told him he had to regret or he wouldn't have. but he didn't get specific about it. and, you know, the other day vice presidential nominee pence said he believes in civility but he's running with donald trump who has changed the rules of the
game here to a degree because he's name called his opponents etc. so i don't blame hillary clinton for trying to sort of -- >> pence also said today that he didn't want to call >> david duke. >> -- david duke. >> -- deplorable. >> -- deplorable because that would be uncivil. i'm not sure calling a white supremacist deplorable is uncivil. >> right. >> we're in interesting time. after labor day before the debates, it is possible to pop up conversies but once the debates start could seem like a lifetime ago. >> i think she's trying to get back to where she was after the convention which if we think back on it was a much more aspirational positive message and i think what we're having right now. and the problem with donald trump is, you know, the saying goes if you get -- don't get down in the mud with pigs because you just get dirty and the pig likes it. so she doesn't want to get back
and forths with him. this comment is frequently the type of comment that trump would normally make. we saw the way he dragged people down during the primary. we saw what he did with for example marco rubio who really was this very aspirational positive person who by the end sort of lost it and was saying all orts sorts of things that he ultimately said had embarrassed his daughters. i think it would be good to get back to that message. michelle obama said when they go low, we go high. >> but gave him an opportunity and she had to respond. i agree in that perfect world she should be giving people a reason to vote for her and not against donald trump. but she's not live in a perfect world the last few days and that is her problem. >> the problem is if you get into a war with
donald trump of who's going to be, you know, hitting harder, i just don't know that is her strength. i think she has a good aspirational message. she has a lot going for her that's positive that would be better. yes she has to excite the base pointing out how awful donald trump is but ultimate she's got give people a reason to vote for her. zbltd. >> david when you saw president obama out on the trail today, you know him probably better than anybody, what did you see? >> i saw a guy who was having a good time for one thing. i think he has been really eager to get out there. obviously he wants hillary clinton to win. i think he's genuinely offended by donald trump. and he expressed that in full today. and i think you are going to see a lot of that this october. the notion of in an aspirational campaign is laudable. i think the -- but someone is going to have to bring the attack and she's got a lot of surrogates and the president being chief among them, who can really make the case for her and against donald trump and i think you are going see it again and again.
>> i want to thank everybody. just ahead another first in a presidential election that's defied expectations. donald trump is going to share results of his recent physical on the dr. oz show on thursday. dr. oz says he's not going ask any questions trump doesn't want to answer. i'll talk to our medical ethicist about it. energy is a complex challenge. people want power. and power plants account for more than a third of energy-related carbon emissions. the challenge is to capture the emissions
before they're released into the atmosphere. exxonmobil is a leader in carbon capture. our team is working to make this technology better, more affordable so it can reduce emissions around the world. that's what we're working on right now. ♪ energy lives here. ♪ using 60,000 points from my chase ink card i bought all the framework... wire... and plants needed to give my shop... a face... no one will forget. see what the power of points can do for your business. learn more at chase.com/ink see what the power of points can do for your business. now that fedex has helped us we could focus on bigger issues, like our passive aggressive environment. we're not passive aggressive. hey, hey, hey, there are no bad suggestions here... no matter how lame they are. well said, ann.
i've always admired how you just say what's in your head, without thinking. very brave. good point ted. you're living proof that looks aren't everything. thank you. welcome. so, fedex helped simplify our e-commerce business and this is not a passive aggressive environment. i just wanted to say, you guys are doing a great job. what's that supposed to mean? fedex. helping small business simplify e-commerce.
and start bidding today! hillary clinton and donald trump have both said they'd release more medical information in the next couple of days but only one of them, trump agreed to raeflt information on the "dr. oz" show on thursday. trump will reveal the results of a physical exam he had last week on an episode that will be taped tomorrow. in an interview on fox news dr. oz said he invited clinton to come on the show as well. here's what else dr. oz said. >> this is his decision. look, the metaphor for me is, this is a doctor's office, the studio. so i'm not going to ask questions he doesn't want to have answered. >> if he puts limitations on what -- >> well, they say it's a first. dr. oz of course has had his own credibility issues. he was subpoenaed by congress, grilled about his promotion of weight loss products on his show. johning us, art kaplan, division of the division of medical ethics at university of new york langone medical center.
what do you make of this? this is the, potentially president of the united states, serious questions about his health. maybe -- >> i always wondered what it would be like if p.t. barnum visited kreskin. this is a bizarre combination. it's a weird format to get at a serious issue. we've been arguing, listening to debates and discussions, what, for two weeks now about the health of hillary clinton and going back before that even some arguments about trump. this forum is not going to settle much of anything. he's restricting what he's going to ask. who knows if the records are complete. it's not the right place to do it. >> dr. oz says his studio is like his doctor's office, and therefore doesn't want to ask questions that this person -- that, you know, a patient doesn't want revealed. but isn't it the doctor's job to ask questions that the patient doesn't necessarily want to talk about? >> absolutely. so the toughest thing about doing a good examination, a good physical, a good history is to ask the hard questions. what about your sex life? how are you sleeping? are you okay with this idea about becoming president? you ask the tough questions. that's exactly what you're trained to do.
you're supposed to do. if he says i'm not going to do that in this setting because it's my office, which by the way i find sfran strained, shall we say, that's an odd office, we're not going to get the answers we'd like to have. >> so what's your advice for viewers who watch this? i get politically why he's doing it. it's a largely female audience, an audience that may not be that involved in the presidential race thus far or may be but at that point are watching daytime tv. >> i think this is a pretty safe office for donald trump to visit in terms of the health discussion. he's not going to get pushed too hard about much of anything. >> so what should viewers keep in mind? do you think take everything with a grain of salt? >> i would take everything with a grain of salt -- >> which is not very healthy for you anyways, with hypertension. but i digress. >> but you can follow that with blueberries, as dr. oz tells us. but you can presume, look, for this kind of debate, release the records to a neutral setting, let other doctors examine them,
comment on them or better still let's have a group of independent doctors examine the candidates if you really care. this is entertainment. this is marketing. i see this as part of the political spin on the health issue. >> i get why oz is doing it, clearly for ratings. but is this ethical for him to do? >> i don't think so. i mean, it's not the right place to assess somebody's health, or claim that you're going to do it. if you want to say i have a guest and i'm going to ask him some interesting questions, among them what about your health, how are you feeling, great. to suggest somehow this is going to be a physical examination room for donald trump, i don't think that's the right place to do it. >> art kaplan, always good to have you on. thanks very much. much more tonight on the breaking news. donald trump just finished unveiling his family leave policy tonight in the battleground state of pennsylvania. his daughter, ivanka, introduced him, setting the stage. a lot more to discuss ahead in this next hour. ♪ across new york state, from long island to buffalo, from rochester to the hudson valley, from albany to utica, creative business incentives,
