tv   CNN Newsroom With Poppy Harlow  CNN  October 1, 2016 4:00pm-5:01pm PDT

4:00 pm
♪ top of the hour. 7:00 p.m. eastern. i'm poppy harlow in new york. at any moment donald trump will take the stage in pennsylvania. cnn has confirmed that trump will unleash a new and different attack on his rival hillary clinton tonight. this time over clinton's comments about millennial's and the citizens amid some of the voters feel toward the government. a conservative washington released audio said is of clinton speaking to supporters at a private fund-raiser in february. they say they obtained the
4:01 pm
reporting from, quote, hackers who breached the e-mail account of a campaign staffer. it's important to note it took place in february when clinton was competing against senator bernie sanders for the young voters. take a listen. >> they are living in their apartme parent's basement. the job are not at all what they envisioned for themselves. they don't see much of future. we should try to do the best we cannot to be a wet blanket on idealism. you want them to be setting big goals but try to present them as bigger goals. >> our team of reporters are standing by. we've got political reporter jeremy diamond with us covering
4:02 pm
the trump rally in pennsylvania. "washington post" columnist josh brogan joining us. democratic strategies -- and former bernie sanders surrogate. thank you for being here. i'm looking to my screen to my side. as we're waiting for trump to come out. we'll bring him as soon as he does. how is the clinton camp responding to this leaked audio? >> hi, poppy. it's fair to say they're taking it seriously because of the way they're struggling with millennial voters. they're not questioning the voracity of what she says. >> right. >> but they're also noting that, you know, she said some of this before. she said some of these things during the primary in interviews and speeches saying that, you know, she basically made it harder -- she's a progressive that likes to get things done. questioning whether bernie sanders and his supporters could accomplish all the things they wanted to accomplish. i don't think it's important --
4:03 pm
it's important to note these politicians know that anything they say is basically on the record. you know, after mitt romney stumbled with his 47% comment at a fund-raiser in 2012, you know, everything they say could be and may be recorded as we're learning now. so secretary clinton is a careful person. she's a worrier. at the fundraisers she knows she's being recorded and this could get out. it happened before. the clinton campaign is taking it seriously, especially because of how they're struggling with millennial voters. >> right. and, i mean, jeremy, the trump campaign is capitalizing on it. they released part of what he's going to say tonight. he's clearly tieing these comments of hers to what she said a few weeks agent about, quote, baskets of deplorables." >> that's right. we're here at the trump rally. we're expecting donald trump to lead hard with the latest audio
4:04 pm
recording of hillary clinton. he's going to say that hillary clinton is demeaning and mocking bernie sanders and she described many as ignorant and want the united states to be more like sa scandinavia. so clearly trump and his campaign thinking that can take the issue, tie it to hillary clinton's basket of deplorables comments about trump supporters. so once again paint hillary clinton essentially as an elitist. somebody not in touch with the american people and essentially looks down on them. the clinton campaign and bernie sanders are pushing back on the characterization. they're saying there's nothing here. that hillary clinton was not speaking in a demean speaking in a demeaning fashion. certainly donald trump will make that argument tonight. >> yeah. you have to listen to the to totality of the remarks.
4:05 pm
we played you a 40 second chunk that is telling. the totality paints a clearer picture. when you look at the audio the way trump is painting it in the prepared remarks. he's going to say if you're not a die hard clinton supporter from day one, clinton thinks you're a defective human being. how damning could the audio be for her in terms of getting young voters? she does say a few sentences later she says we cannot put a wet blanket on idealism. we want people to be idealistic. she qualifies them. >> right. i think this is definitely unforced error. it comes at an unfortunate time when the trump campaign was really in free fall all week over trump's latest scandal. so there's no doubt that it's not good for hillary clinton. the problem is that, you know, hillary clinton's outreach to bernie supporters is not going as well as she wants it to. they increased infrastructure,
4:06 pm
increased outreach. it's not working. we see millennial voters fleeing to people like gary johnson, jill stein, and it has to be a key part of her voting base if she wants to win in november. now, at the same time, there's just no doubt that as these things come out the public gets desensiti desensitized. it's a season with a lot of leaks. and the leaks are orchestrated and people are tuned into that. w shouldn't overemphasize it. hillary clinton is a center left center right candidate. that's what she said in the extended remarks. people get that. that's true. >> but, i mean, you're not only a millennial. a former bernie sanders surrogate. what is your take on the comments? how damning are they? >> i think they're making a lot of something out of nothing. i mean, nobody who was part of the bernie support network and all the people i've spoke ton surprised by the comments. let's not forget, it was after
4:07 pm
she was defeated and crushed in new hampshire. it's the middle of primary. i don't think it's a hillary clinton problem. i think it's a generational issue. the millennial generation had constant frustration articulating their problems and pains and frustrations with the world we live in. the post recession world we live in to generations older people in power. we deal with different issues. and i think the clinton campaign, you know, continues to struggle with connecting with them at that level. but it's not a total issue. it's not like all of bernie's millennial's are not supporting hillary. it's a subset that don't have grand association or loyalty to the democratic party, definitely don't have it with hillary clinton, and those are the people she wants to target. i think one solution for this. it's schism. i think hillary clinton needs to come on stage and go out there and apologize for the primary. and say she's learned from millennial's.
4:08 pm
she's learned about the pains and the frustrations and why they were supporting bernie sanders. even though it's idealism it was a defense in strategy. i think most democrats want the same things. it's just there are two different strategies. bernie sanders was trying to push us far to the left so we can get to a better place in the middle. >> how difficult is it, as a former sanders surrogate, how difficult for him to effectively hit the trail like he did in new hampshire this week and make the case for her, not just the case against trump. right. because he needs to motivate people that are planning to sit it out. how effective can he be to motivate those people for her when he argued on -- in the primary she did not have their interest in mind. >> you know it's tough. that's how primaries work. i think what hillary did have was she said in that leaked comments was that she said a lot of people are new to the process.
4:09 pm
the largest generation in history. and so many of them are voting for the first time. and we're voting as democrats for the first time. so if i were bernie sanders going out there, i would say things like "listen, this has never happened before. an independent senator from vice president was able to take up half the party. 46% of the delegates at the convention. half the platform committee. we changed the platform. it doesn't happen." usually a convention is full a lot of firm democrats. there's so much progress and leverage. that hillary clinton, as president, will be forced to listen to us. she has to listen to the progressive base. to waste your vote, that's wasting your power to influence. the third party candidates we know both of them are very much not qualified either through experience or knowledge. that's puts us at risk of a donald trump presidency which doesn't get us anything. >> let me get the trump supporter in here. when you listen to the entirety of this, and i assume you have.
4:10 pm
she's not mocking bernie sanders, right. there are words in here that will going to come back to haunt her. trump will capitalize on them tonight talking about these are people living in their parents basements, do you think this actively helps your candidate? how much can he play it up to his advantage to get the millennial's on board when the totality of the comments are not just similar to basket of deplorables >>well, poppy, what i want to say is this. will the real secretary clinton speak up and actually she continues to speak up but only in these private fundraisers when the true sentiments of her, how she feels about republicans who don't -- didn't vote for her or democrats who didn't vote for her. what i think this does is it just reinforces this clear narrative that secretary clinton has some type of problem who are not on her team. so we saw the rigged system against her with the dnc. look, i was at the democratic
4:11 pm
national convention with the things. i was at the convention. the bernie sanders supporters were upset. they were lifrd. they tossed out the dnc chair. it's a problem. it reinforces the narrative there's something she's not connecting with bernie sanders supporters. and independents and millennial's. it reinforces that on her side. the burden is not on millennial's or mr. trump. we can listen to what secretary clinton says and see clearly how she thinks. >> guys, thank you very much. again, we're waiting to hear from trump live in manheim, pennsylvania. thank you to my entire panel. quick break. we're back in a moment. first kid

unleash a new line of attack on his river, hillary clinton. this time focussed on comments she made about millennial supporters of bernie sanders. it is the trump campaign's newest strategy, also, to use old bill clinton sex scandals if from the '90s and turn women against hillary clinton. that's what trump says he'll do in an new interview with the "new york times." that said, it's a questionable move given trump's own history with the women and the men he surrounded himself with during the campaign. >>. >> reporter: it's not only trump who is facing scrutiny. some of his closest advisors are, as well. >> we need a fight in the republican party for the soul of the conservative -- >> i agree with you. >> campaign ceo steve bannan. he faced misdemeanor sexual

sharing a ten by ten room,ng threestruggling.nding, i rent this place and then i started home sharing. my roommates help out all the time. they are glad to meet the guests and that opportunity that airbnb has given me is such a priceless gift. i was able to take three months off to take car of my family during a family tragedy. the extra income that i get from airbnb has been a huge impact in my life. the ceo of wells fargo had two rocky appearances on capitol hill. most recently thursday before a house committee.
4:22 pm
john stumpf was lambasted. members of the house financial services committee accused the bank's ceo of running a criminal enterprise. he got a hostile grilling earlier from senators over revelations his employees used the personal information of real people to create millions of fake accounts it to scare meet their sales goals and boost profits. stumpf could barely get a word in edge wise. >> your company abused its customers. while you have apologized, that apology carries no weight with me, sir. >> who cares? we'll pretend to be sorry and fire some workers. we'll get through this. you know, i heard that before. where? the guys who ran enron. >> mr. stumpf, i regretfully have a mortgage with your bank. i wish i didn't. if i was in the position to pay it off, i would. you have broken my trust and you have broken the trust of
4:23 pm
millions of others and it will be a long, long time to earn that trust back. >> your bank, you, ceo, chairman basically for me on top of what has been a criminal enterprise. >> there's no question we don't do everything right. we've made mistakes. we're up our game. >> who is accountable for it. >> we'll make it right -- >> your vp made $152 million bonus package. your institution is making over $22 billion. who is paying for it? don't tell me you're sorry. >> one congresswoman made the case to break up wells fargo. listen. >> it's really striking me how huge this bank is. i'm also concerned about whether or not as chairman and ceo you can really know what is going on
4:24 pm
at the bank. i have come to the conclusion that wells fargo should be broken up. it's too big to manage. mr. chairman, i'm going to be talking with you and the members of this committee who showed their outrage here today on moving forward to break up wells fargo bank. >> that congresswoman is on the phone with me now democrat maxine waters from california. thank you for joining me, congresswoman. >> you're certainly welcome. thank you for calling me to talk about wells fargo. >> you know we heard a lot about break up the banks. break up the banks in the wake of the financial crisis. didn't happen. what would breaking up wells fargo accomplish? what is your goal there? >> caller: well, when i talk about too big to manage, what i'm talking about is we went through a serious meltdown in 2008, and we came up with reform in the dodd-frank act. one of the things we decided was
4:25 pm
we really do have to know more about how these banks to organize, what they're involved in. we want to know about their trades and mortgages and more. we have something called living wills that may have to organize and present to us so that we can talk about not only how they're organized but how we would break them up if, in fact, they are too risky. none of the five big banks have absolutely complied with their living wills. they have submitted them but they have not been satisfactory. wells fargo is one. between the living wills and the stress test, i believe the regulators have enough information about wells fargo to engage in what we've given them the authority to do, if they don't do it, i'm looking at how you put together legislation
4:26 pm
using some of what we put together in dodd/frank to be able to do this. >> so let me get your take on this. several republican and democratic lawmakers have alleged that wells fargo's sales practices may have actually violated federal law by opening these fake accounts with real people's information. they could have broken federal racketeering laws. if that's the case, that would institute a criminal offense. do you believe the ceo john stumpf should be criminally charged? >> i do. i do think that he's in a very vulnerable situation. the department of justice has started their investigation. don't forget for every one of the wells fargo customers or climates that they created a fraudulent account for, they have to steal their identity. in many cases -- >> so should he be criminally charged, though? >> that's a possibility.
4:27 pm
let's look what the justice department comes down with. one of the things that happen trad additionally they find all the big banks for all the fraudulent actions they're involved in. and at one point in time, we have the former attorney general to say, well, breaking up the banks would be much too disruptive to the systems we rely on to provide banking services. so that's why es terribly we don't send them to chair. we don't charge them criminally. we do these fines to punish them and make them pay. but many of us are believing that this is just the cost of doing business. over $10 million in the last few years and they keep making these kinds of fraudulent moves. >> congresswoman, let me ask you about someone else.
4:28 pm
jump john stumpf is getting the attention. there's another top executive. the executive who lead the banks division and created the acounts. she was forced out of the bank a few months before her retirement. she walked away with a -- i mean, she's walking away with millions of dollars. what could be, according to cnn money, a golden parachute of $77 million. the woman who ran the division and created the fake accounts that resulted in 5300 employees being fired. what is your reaction to that? >> caller: my reaction it was outrageous for her to leave with the golden parachute. it was close to $152 million. and then we have something in law called fallback that the banks can use when they get caught red handed. it causes them to have to put money back. she worked for him. she would not have done that unless he knew about it.
4:29 pm
>> will your committee target her? >> caller: what we're doing is talking about who has a responsibility. who knew what and when? as we do that and as the justice department does that, we hopefully will be able to identify how it started. for example, did she or some other executive come up with this proposal, present to him and the board? and then she executed it? we need to know. we need to find out how it happened. >> yeah. let's not forget that some of the people who were the whistle blowers and called wells fargo's ethic lines to report this, they say to cnn money they were terminated as a result. congresswoman maxine waters, thank you for joining me. we'll follow this. we're continuing to watchmanheim, pennsylvania where trump is set to speak live at any moment. we'll bring it to you as soon as
4:30 pm
he starts to speak. quick break back on the other side. er our data limit. oh, well, now - all of our new plans come with no data overages. wow, no more overages? so that means... go on...say it... we'll finally be in control... and we're back... introducing new at&t plans with no data overage charges. it'sanyone ever haveady! occasional constipation, diarrhea, gas or bloating?

4:33 pm
we're waiting for donald trump to take the stage. in prepared remarks released by his campaign he'll unleash on hillary clinton. meantime, in this week's american opportunity one on one with melinda gates. the work she and her husband has done has produced remarkable results in battling diseases like malaria and polio. melinda is focussed on her most personal. putting women and girls a the center of eradicating poverty here and here. and weighed on the parental leave debate that made waves. >> when you turn 50 years old a few years ago, you took it as a moment to think what about what do i want to accomplish with the
4:34 pm
rest of my life. you landed on women and girls. you are a mother of three, two teenage girls. how personal of a decision was that for you? >> it was about how do i want to change the world? how do i want to leave things when i'm gone? if you believe, as i do, that women and girls transform societies, i have to do this work. i want to do this work. i think when i got into global health. first of all, we didn't hardly talk about women. we certainly didn't talk about girls in global health. secondly it was like that's the soft issue. what i've come to learn through doing the work it's the hard core issue. it's the thing we have to solve if you want to increase the gdp around the world, if you want to transform societies. >> why make the case, right? i was stunned to learn that there are more women living in poverty than men around the world. by the way, that's true in the united states. >> yeah. so that's why we say poverty is sexist. there are absolutely more women in vulnerable situations. here is a perfect example.
4:35 pm
if a woman is educated, her child is twice as likely to make it to his or her fifth birthday. >> to live. why is it more women are trapped in poverty even in the united states? >> well, in the united states it has to do with a lot of single mother hood. there are many women who are sing single-headed households and struggling to make ends meet. we probably need different policy decisions that focus on women to do the right thing. we have a poverty commission that is up and running now with the urban institute, and the whole idea to create a public good where we can look at poverty mobility. >> you travel the world, obviously, with the work you do. especially in the developing world. one thing that stuck with me, you said you have to let your heartbreak to affect change. you have to let your heartbreak. when has your heart broke someone. >> so many times. i guess one of the most recent ones is a reminder is, you know, i had a woman in india who asked
4:36 pm
me to take her child home with me. she didn't know who i was. she was literally begging me to take her child home then she said, if you can't take this one, take that one. she didn't even know me. and i thought for mom to do that right it tells you how desperate it is she would give up a child. that's heartbreaking. >> so what has this journey over the past few years been like for you as a mother? not as a melinda gates that the world knows. >> my oldest daughter who is now 20. i think when i was younger she didn't understand why i worked. because she said but you don't have to, mom. and i said, yes, there are things i believe in. things i want to step out and use my voice and make sure the foundation does. it's interesting as she's older she said i get it now. i get why you work. she said i want to be a working mom. one day. absolutely a mom and working
4:37 pm
mom. >> to that point, one of the biggest issues that society and the world is trying to tackle when it comes to true -- frankly true equality for women is the unpaid work we do as women. the so-called as economists say the second shift or time poverty. coming home from our jobs and having way more work at home than men do. what is the gap? >> so, worldwide, if you look at the gap, it's different in different countries. in the united states it's 90 minutes a day more the women do of unpaid work so we need to make it more okay for men to actually take time off. we also know dad is more likely to be involved long-term if he's taking time off at the beginning. we have to make it okay for with men and women to take the time off. when bill was working at microsoft as ceo, and our oldest daughter was going preschool i was driving her and he started
4:38 pm
to drive her some. all of a sudden there was a scuttle butt in the classroom among the moms. they said we're telling our husbands that bill gates, ceo can drive his kids so can you. so we were role modelling for other families. more dads started showing up at school. it was great. >> you said it's not enough to reduce because if you just reduce then they'll figure out other work will come up. if you don't zpribt that you'll be stuck with more. >> exactly. you have to do all three. you have to recognize, reduce, and redistribute. and i've seen some very courageous families have those conversations even in africa. the woman will say it's not okay i'm the only one doing this particular part of the work. >> have you ever had that conversation with bill? >> absolutely! the conversation about, you know, who is going to do what. when he left microsoft to start working at the foundation, it freed me up to travel more. it meant if i was traveling, i wanted somebody home for dinner
4:39 pm
more. so we constantly literally every week we look at our calendar and look two weeks ahead to see who is home for dinner. both of us or which one of us. i asked him to give up meetings to be home for dinner with the kids. i think that's important. >> paid leave. >> we're at a moment in this country where we've never been before. both the democrats and the republicans running for president both want governor-paid leave. for hillary clinton it's family leave paternity and maternity. for donald trump it's maternity. how big a step we're having this conversation? >> well, it's a necessary step. to me it's a step we should have taken 20 years ago. but i'm so glad in this particular time we finally say to ourselves, okay, it's not whether we should have it. it's going to be how should we have it? should it be family leave? what form should it be in? how are we going to cover it and pay for it? there are great politicians around the world. many of the countries instituted
4:40 pm
this. we're way behind. >> we're so far behind. >> i'm glad we're going to do it and it'll become after the election how do do it. >> what do the policies need to take shape? >> family leave. so you don't gender it. women take it it's almost a penalty they have a child and don't come wack to the work force in the same way. we need to make sure it's both parents, several months, paid, and we also incent the men to take it. it needs to become okay for men to take it. it means men taking it and show it. mark zuckerberg taking two months off at the time his daughter was born was a fantastic thing. it was great role modelling. >> it's silicon valley it's, frankly, more widely accepted than wall street, for example. do we need to heads of big wall street banks doing the same thing? >> absolutely. we know if people take leave they're happier and stay at
4:41 pm
their company longer. so they're less likely to switch industries. so i think if you know it's good for your bottom line and you'll have an employee who is going to be there long-term you spent all the money training and getting them to be great, yeah, it helps the bottom line. >> thanks to melinda gates. you can see more of our interview with her cnnmoney.com/opportunity. we're waiting for donald trump to speak live tonight. we'll bring it to you as soon as it begins. stay with us. i am rich. in my gentleman's quarters, we sip champagne and peruse my art collection, which consists of renaissance classics and more avant-garde pieces. yes, i am rich. that's why i drink the champagne of beers. before it became a medicine, it was an idea. a wild "what-if." so scientists went to work. they examined 87 different protein structures
