2:00 am
they aren't. "early start" continues right now. donald trump on defense this morning, despite the fact he says he won the debate. he is on the trail going after a, not just hillary clinton, but a former miss universe. taking issue with her appearance and now on anderson cooper overnight, she has responded. hillary clinton calls in the reserves, bernie sanders around the campaign trail with one target, young voters. how clinton is trying to capitalize on what she believes is a big debate win. >> one of the world's great agents for peace, a man who worked decades to make this world a better place has passed. shimon peres being remembered for everything he did, not just for israel, but also for the world. good morning, everyone. welcome to "early start." i'm john berman. >> i'm christine romans.
2:01 am
it's wednesday, september 28th. it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. this morning, donald trump is insisting he won the first presidential debate. this despite the cnn poll that found hillary clinton the decisive winner. this despite the fact that he stirred up a hornet's nest of controversies. on the stump, trump is repeating his fact-checked and debunked claim that he opposed the iraq war. but most surprisingly, he refused to let go of his scathing criticism of the weight gains of a former miss universe. she's now speaking out about it to cnn. all of that after trump bragging an his restraint or going easy on hillary clinton, cnn's sara murray has the latest. >> reporter: good morning, john and christine, even as donald trump's own supporters say they had misgivings about his performance, a very fired up candidate took the stage last night saying he won the debate and even insisting he held back against hillary clinton. >> last night when i debated
2:02 am
secretary clinton on america's future -- for 90 minutes i watched her very carefully, and i was also holding back. i didn't want to do anything to embarrass her. >> reporter: now, at times, this rally almost got like a throwback to the donald trump of the republican primary. he kept interrupting himself to tout his crowd size torsion tout his poll numbers and even to slam the media. now, at least one thing was clear last night of, if donald trump missed any opportunity to go after hillary clinton on the debate stage, he clearly did not give any of those up on the campaign trail. back to you, guys. a big day on the trail for hillary clinton who hopes to fix a nagging problem for her campaign. bernie sanders will join clinton, of course, his former
2:03 am
rival, in new hampshire, sources tell cnn that sanders is planning a new surge of events in battleground states. she needs his help to woo skeptical young voters. they are not going to her as much as they have gone to democrats. also this morning, hillary clinton has received a surprising endorsement from the arizona republic which has never in 26 years backed a democrat. the paper wrote we understand the discontent among those who feel left behind by a changed economy and shifting demographics. their concerns deserve to be discussed with respect. ironically, trump hasn't done that. hays merely pandered instead of offering solutions he hangs scapegoats like pinatas and invites people to take a swing. this is hillary clinton's opportunity. she can reach out to those who feel left behind." you can consider whether or not or paper endorsements matter
2:04 am
anymore, but this goes clinton's way. clinton is back on the campaign trail. she's very excited about what the campaign and cnn poll found to be a debate victory. >> i'm going to leave it to the fact-checkers to go through all of donald trump's claims. there was a lot of work for fact-checkers last night. when i confronted him with the reasons why he won't release his tax returns. and i got to that point where i said maybe he's paid zero. he said that makes him smart. now, if not paying taxes makes him smart, what does that make all the rest of us? >> that's hillary clinton in north carolina yesterday. she's in new hampshire today. let's talk about all of the action on the campaign trail. joining us now cnn politics reporter eugene scott. eugene, we were talking about donald trump versus hillary clinton. now we have donald trump versus
2:05 am
alicia machado, a former miss universe. let me walk people through. towards the debate monday night, hillary clinton brought up this former miss universe from venezuela who according to this person gained weight after she won the crown and donald trump criticized her calling her miss piggy. >> and his housekeeping. >> and miss housekeeping. trump didn't comment on the stage. he brings it up on fox and friends, listen to what trump said almost unprovoked the next day. >> i know that person. that person was a miss universe person. and she was the worst we ever had. the worst. the absolute worst. she was impossible. and she was a miss universe contestant. and ultimately a winner who they had a tremendously difficult time with as miss universe. she was the winner and, you know, she gained a massive amount of waste. and it was a real problem. we had a real problem.
2:06 am
>> so, there's donald trump volunteering criticism of a woman's weight. >> and the host even said, oh, we didn't know that story. we didn't know about it. and he kept on it. >> and then, and then, or so, donald trump creates or helped bring alicia machado into this discussion. she appeared on anderson cooper last night and this is what she said. >> we can accept -- we can't accept more insults for my latin community, no more. no more insults for the women. i know very well mr. trump, and i can see the same person that i met 20 years ago. >> so, obviously, look, this is exactly what the clinton campaign wanted. sure. >> she brought this up for a reason on that stage. >> but he took the bait. >> exactly. >> and then took it again. >> yeah, i was actually talking
2:07 am
to a friend from arizona, a voter yesterday who said he felt like if hillary clinton brought up this situation from 20 years ago, then donald trump has the right to bring up situations with clinton 20 years ago. but the difference is this isn't something that trump said 20 years ago, this is something that trump said yesterday. he made comments as you mentioned a current story which is very interesting because had he handled it differently when she brought it up. and said, you know what, i made these statements 20 years ago, i apologize. i'm pivoting. i actually now feel this way, maybe the response would have been different. >> let's say in response to women. this is something that rudy giuliani said about hillary clinton after the debate. as you know, trump kmp and his surrogates have been sort of saying that he should be congratulated for holding back on bringing up bill clinton's past. listen. >> president of the united states, her husband, disgraced this country what he did in the
2:08 am
oval office. and she -- she didn't just stand by him, she attacked monica lewinsky, after being married to bill clinton for 20 years, if you didn't know the moment monica lewinsky said that he violated her, then you're too stupid to be president. >> what does it get them, if women voters to go back on something to blame a woman for her husband that happened that is 20 years. there are people who have been in the headlines for having affairs out of wedlock. what does that get them? >> i think there's some question, if there's some strategy, it's not clear right now, for a candidate doing as poorly as donald trump is doing with women voters. one thing that i think is very interesting we have robby mook, clinton's campaign manager on "new day" yesterday, he said,
2:09 am
whatever they throw in the next area she will be prepared. the expectation is the hints. >> what strategy is it? i don't know what it gets them? >> i don't know -- the clinton people clearly know how to respond, the chief strategist said, oh, yeah, we're basically ready for anything. we'll see if it happens. i want to talk about a weakness for the clinton campaign, one she's trying to address today. she's got bernie sanders on the trail with her today. she needs younger voters to be more enthusiastic about her kandz daens. i want to show you the latest quinnipiac poll as president, you can see -- look at the drop from august to september. she lost 17 points among millennial voters. look where it 20, gary johnson and jill stein. these voters are a key part of what is called the obama coalition. they turned out for barack obama. and she needs them to turn out for her. and that explains why bernie sanders is out there today and apparently more. but can he do it for her,
2:10 am
eugene? >> well, he definitely has the ability to make points, to make issues like climate change and reform. there are two more debates, it's interesting to see if she is able to say anything to make significant strides with the community. after the first debate i did see on social media some of the activists who have been most critical of hillary clinton say, you know what, she has made significant strides in the area. they're not on board but they've noted some progress. it will be interesting to see if sanders can pull them over the line. >> they're counting on them. that's a big ask from the former opponent. >> when you talk to millennials, the question do they vote or don't they vote. >> or do they vote for gary johnson. >> some were so inspired by the bernie movement.they just feel that clinton seems inevitable to

2:12 am
ninth president of israel shimon peres. he was there from the very beginning working on the foundation, the creation of the state of israel. worked all the way through. he was working on peace, he was working on building trust and confidence between israelis and palestinians up until the very end and that will be his legacy. the man who carried forth peace and did everything in his power to make it happen. that is what is being carried in the messages of condolences. as from the u.s. and elsewhere. let me read a bit of what president obama had to say. he said "a light has gone out but the hope he gave us will burn forever. shimon peres was a soldier for israel, for the jewish people, for justice, for peace, for the belief that we can be true to our best selves to the very end of our time on earth. and the legacy that we leave to others." we expect to see many world leaders attending his funeral.

2:37 am
trump brought up himself. last night the former miss universe was on with anderson cooper and this is what she said about donald trump. >> we can't accept, we can't accept more insults for my latin community. no more. no more insults for the women. i know very well mr. trump, and i can see the same person that i met 20 years ago. >> so, here's my question, talking about a woman's massive weight gain. calling her miss piggy or miss housekeeping. houking about how your restraint could be congratulated for not bringing up the affairs of your spouse's candidate how does that help him with women? >> not only is this not clear how this helps him with women,
2:38 am
the question is what impact will this have on the groups that he's doing well with. he's doing well with married women. according to the most recent cnn/roc poll. not only does this look like something that may not increase support of women in general, you have to ask, will this hurt him with women that he doing well with. but sympathetic to issues such as millennials, such as hispanics in general who aren't women. and black men and people that he said yesterday on fox. >> the campaign saying that the debate was successful that they raised $17 million in the national call day. so, they think the reaction, whatever he did was big among this supporters. they're touting that. from the democratic side, president obama for who much of the campaign said i didn't watch this, i didn't watch that. he watched this debate apparently. and yesterday, in the radio
2:39 am
interview, he talked about what he saw. >> everybody who was watching the debate i think got a sense that you've got really sharply contrasting visions about where we should take the country. and, you know, i'm admittedly biased. i have worked with hillary. i know her. she is well prepared, i would say that the other guy doesn't have the preparation, the temperament or the core values of inclusion. >> and it's also reported that will cut some ads for hillary clinton which will be interesting to see. again, he could be key for her to reach constituency. she needs to show up in big numbers which is millennial voters. >> and the group saying, if you want to continue the legacy that i set, that i support, you have to get behind hillary clinton. if you do not, donald trump could win and unravel all of these things that we've worked
2:40 am
together to create. whether or not these groups believe him and buy into it and believe that hillary clinton can move forward with the progressive policies that even bernie sanders he backs remain to be seen. >> bernie sanders also not quite so sure that president obama was also a proponent of for the last eight years either. so that's interesting. >> very interesting. we're definitely seeing people come on board the clinton train, the clinton camp who in years past were less on board, but i think that's what a general election does. >> elizabeth warren on that train. bernie sanders, barack obama, joe biden. maybe bill clinton eventually, maybe certainly trying to court mi millennials. a man who spend decades work for peace, former prime minister of israel shimon peres passed away last night. one of the last living links to
2:41 am
israel's founding fathers. cnn's oren liebermann is at the hospital where peres died just outside of tel aviv with more on the reaction this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, christine. that reaction has been coming in not only from israel and heres here but from all over the world. where condolences and messages of respect are pouring in for shimon peres. he was working in public service until the creation of the state and he continued to do that to the very end. transferring from prime minister to foreign minister. to pursue peace to build trust and causal dense between israelis and palestinians. that is what is being remembered in the statements. let me read what president barack obama had to say. he says a light has gone out the hope he gave us will burn
