welcome back to breaking news coverage here from washington university in st. louis, the site of the second presidential debate taking place here tomorrow night hosted by our very own anderson cooper. he will be moderating. just breaking news from dana bash. here's what she's reporting at this moment, mike pence told donald trump in a call today that the only effective person to speak on this issue, this scandal is donald trump, himself,
mike pence also said if he went to wisconsin to be on stage with paul ryan, which he was planning to, but pulled that
out that that would interfere with that, according to a source familiar with that call. aden, da that reporting mike pence told donald trump on the phone today, the only effective person to speak about this is you, donald trump. meantime, donald trump's wife, melania, is responding to the newly released video of her husband. she says, quote the words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me. this does not represent the man that i know. he has the heart and mind of a leader. i hope people will accept his apology as i have, and focus on the important issues facing our nation and the world. meantime, donald trump's daughter ivan ka trumped a her husband were at trump tower meeting with donald trump, discussing twa his response will be to that leaked video. last fall, i sat down with ivanka trump, we focused on her campaign, "women who work."
i asked her about her father's treatment of women. here's part of that interview. >> your father points to you telling him, that he has
been on the campaign trail was really misunderstood on his views about women. he has said some things about women that have shocked many people, about carley fiorina, look at that face, would anyone vote for that, about megyn kelly's questioning him in the fox debate, there was blood coming out of wherever. what was your reaction to that? >> i think a lot of the sensationalism around this was orchestrated largely by the media. my father is very blunt. he is very direct. he is non-gender specific about people that he doesn't particularly like or people he doesn't like and thinks they're wrong on a particular issue. so i don't think that he's gender targeted at all. like i said, i wouldn't be the person i am today. i wouldn't be a high level
executive within his organization if he felt that way. so he's always supported and encouraged women and truthfully he's proven that over decades, through liss employment practices, through his hiring practices. >> what would a president trump do for women in this country? >> he'd be amazing for women in this country. he would be incredible for women in this country and he's starting to articulate his positions. it's not my place to articulate this for him. i'm not part of the campaign. i'm very busy and he's kept me very busy working alongside my brothers and running the organization now that he's take this step and in terms of his efforts to try and make this country great again, as he says, so, you know, i'll leave policy to him, but i can speak from my vantage point as a child and also from my van tage point as a colleague and somebody who works for him. he's been an amazing parent.
he's given me every opportunity to succeed. he's been loving and supportive. he's pushed me. he's corrected me, he's disciplined me. and i think as a parent now myself, i appreciate how hard that is more than ever before. when i was 15 or 16, i was a little less impressed by how tough he was and how strict he was with us as children. as a parent now, i see just how hard it is to raise children with drive and with passion and with energy, who have a wealth set moral compass. he very much dade for me in his role as a father. >> that was ivanka trump speaking with me last year about her father and the controversies at that time surrounding comments he had made around women, ivanka trump there. we will take a quick break. much more of our breaking news coverage, this fallout of the
videotape release of donald trump's comments from 2005. stay with me. we are live right after this. you inherit lots of traits from your family. my ancestor, lady eleanor, made it big in textiles. my great-grandfather bernard wrote existential poetry. and uncle john was an explorer. i inherited their can-do spirit. and their double chin. now, i'm going to do something about it. kybella® is the first of its kind injectable treatment that destroys fat under the chin, leaving an improved profile. kybella® is an fda-approved non-surgical treatment for adults with a moderate amount of fullness... or a bit more. don't receive kybella® if you have an infection in the treatment area. kybella® can cause nerve injury in the jaw resulting in an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness, and trouble swallowing. tell your doctor about all medical conditions, including if you: have had or plan to have surgery or cosmetic treatments on your face, neck or chin; have had or have medical conditions in or near your neck or have bleeding problems. tell your doctor about all medicines you take. the most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.
right donald trump's remarks, that he will give tomorrow night in the debate, have you done this for four presidents. you wrote nixon's resignation letter, what should come out of donald trump's mouth? >> i think he has to start by dealing with the apology and repeat it in a way and move off it so it doesn't become a regular feature of it. i'm not sure he can quell this storm between now and tomorrow night. there is so much anticipation. we could have a bigger audience than the first debate. >> a super bowl size audience. if not bigger, probably. given this. what do you have to say what are the words? what is the contrition we have to see? that was not in that video last night. >> no, what you want to have is, one felt that that was a negotiated statement. what happened for people that thought he ought to be very
apologetic. the other for donald trump. in the middle of the statement, he shifted to be the fighter again. he needs to show an enormous amount of contrition, the country has changed me, but i think it's pressure for him to resign, i think his poll numbers will drop tomorrow. it will look like he's -- so you got a lot of republicans, so you don't want to resign. i think he could look back if history and look at all things richard nixon's execerred speech when he was a presidential candidate for dwight eisenhower in 1952, there was a lot of prepare for him to get off the ticket. he went on national television and said it's up to you the public to tell me what to do. should i stay or should i fight? he got an avalanche of letters to say fight. trump needs something like that. >> that would very much be in step with trump being the outsider and anti-establishment. he is blaming the media in his latest tweet for this.
bill clinton is speaking somewhere in wisconsin for his wife. we got reporting from the clinton camp, she's not going to say word about this until she takes the stage tomorrow night. should bill clinton say anything? >> no, he's, the republicans have a crisis on their hands right now. just let them keep digging away. they could even have a civil war on their hands if they're not careful. what was interesting about that paul ryan rally, how many people came and said, where the heck is trump? why did you disinvite him, in his home state, it's so powerful. >> he is a party divided. so hillary clinton we know won't say anything until she takes the debate stage tomorrow night, our anderson cooper will be moderating. what does hillary clinton say? if you think back to the primary when carley fiorina, when trump was saying about her peace, she says i think every american woman knows what he meant.
she left it at that. >> it may be that hillary can find a moment when a woman asks her a question and she can explore her feelings as a woman. the emotion among woim women is very strong. i think hillary can argue, there may be a silver lining in all of this before it's over, the country may finally come to grips with the assaults against women that have been going on, the language that is being used. women experience this all the time. they don't see much change and maybe this will be like a chance that hillary may be able to take that side of the argument about how we have to empower women. she has been talking about more than half of her cabinet as women. she can make i maybe use this. >> when you think back to beijing, human rights are women's rights. a moment for that line. >> a very good point. >> david gergen, thank you very much. we appreciate it. >> coming up, donald trump and
occupation, but now that it has made landfall in south carolina, catastrophic flooding is the main concern. take a look. this is a scene from this morning as matthew hit charleston, a category 1 storm with 75-mile-an-hour winds. a short time later, the hurricane hit north of that city. life-threatening flood conditions. the national weather center says up to 15 inches of rain are possible near and east of i-95 and in florida, the hurricane is being blamed for four deaths. haiti though bears the brunt of this storm. haiti confirms 360 people have died as matthew made landfall at a category 4 storm on tuesday. a government spokesperson says 211 people are injured. more than 60,000 people have been displaced. for ways you can help those affected be i this horrific hurricane, go to cnn.com/impact.
pay those extra bills." - every bit of extra money helps these days. we have a retirement fund of our own and i take a draw on it. i don't want to take too much either because i don't know what life is going to bring to me. i get to keep 97% of my rental price. the extra income i get from airbnb has been a huge help. - airbnb has helped me so much financially especially starting my own business. san francisco is such an expensive place to live. the way people work and travel is changing. the guests are now able to stay longer, stay five days, enjoy another day in san francisco and spend more money in the neighborhood. my guests are able to extend their stay and spend more money on activities and restaurants. - the extra income that i get from airbnb has been a huge impact in my life.
