>> jason carroll, thanks so much. donald trump did have a new policy proposal. term limits for members of congress. he's calling for a constitutional amendment. it would take a constitutional amendment that would restrict members to six years of service, senators, 12 years. on monday, they proposed an ethics on when the executive branch leave office. cnn has learned new details about donald trump's preparation for the final debate. a source tells us that rnc chair reince priebus played the moderators with new jersey governor chris christie playing hillary clinton. this is a bit of a change doing mock scenarios. we had been told in the first debate, he did not do this. did not want to do this, apparently coming in nor prepared. hillary clinton, she's been off the campaign trail for several days, raising money and preparing for tonight's debate. in the very first debate she
1:05 am
seemed to be trying to bait trump. at 9:00 p.m. eastern, she is expected to employ a different strategy, according to cnn's jeff zeleny. >> that's right, hillary clinton is getting ready for her final debate with donald trump. she's preparing in a different way. now, she's been actually familiarizing herself with all of those campaign e-mails and previous positions and statements unearthed through the stolen hacked e-mails published by wikileaks. it is a new development in this campaign. something she is preparing for. something she expected donald trump will go after. she will also, i'm told, go after what donald trump is did calling a rigged election. pushing back hard, perhaps as a way to get under donald trump's skin. she's also going to make the case for why she can be the president for all americans. of course, that message is aimed at getting some republicans some moderate voters who may not have
1:06 am
been open for voting for her. but they simply cannot be there for trump. she's trying to make the case today, "a," she's presidential, and "b," even if you don't love her, you still may want to vote for her because donald trump in the eyes of the clinton campaign is simply not fit for president. of course, donald trump will be getting his last licks in. this is the last time before a big audience raising case about honesty and her trustworthiness. with the campaign less than three weeks away from election day. john and christine. >> jeff zeleny for us. the third installment of the debate trilogy is tonight on cnn. we are here now. we'll be here all day long. christine romans. >> thank you so much, john berman. president obama has a message for donald trump, quit whining. the commander in chief calling out donald trump for his repeated claim that's election
1:07 am
is rigged. listen to him mock the gop for what he calls the unprecedented and dangerous attack on the nation's election system. >> that is both irresponsible. and by the way, doesn't really show the kind of leadership and toughness that you want out of a president. you start whining before the game's even over. if whenever things are going badly for you, you start blaming somebody else? then you don't have what it takes to be in this job. >> the president hosted his final state dinner last night welcoming italian prime minister matteo renzi. in his toast on the south lawn he borrowed a line from yogi berra telling the crowd it ain't over 'til it's over. heavyweights for v.p., an e-mail allegedly sent by gop

stoynoff for that exact encounter. a friend said they chatted in a friendly way. what struck me the most was melania was carrying a child and wearing heels. melania stands by her denial of this ever happening and still demands an a retraction and apology from "people" magazine. 17 minutes after. the operation for the fight for mosul. iraq's second largest city. how long will this take and are americans forces in harm's way here? we've got a live report from iraq -- next.

1:24 am
everything is in place. and coordinated to begin the assault itself. and then once inside the city, it really gets tough. it could take two months, perhaps more to defeat isis in that city. isis reportedly has anywhere between 3,000 and 5,000 fighters inside. of course, we have to remember, there are up to 1 million civilians still inside that city and in a pier littlous situation, christine. >> absolutely. thanks for that report, michael holmes. breaking overnight, caught on video, police ramming into protesters injuring several. this happened at an anti-u.s. rally at the american embassy in manila. look at this, video footage showing demonstrators hitting the vans with ba tons. they had taken the batons from police. they gathered to put an end to u.s. troops in the philippines and to support a call by president duterte for a foreign policy not dependent on the u.s.

1:35 am
in the first debate, she seemed to be trying to bait donald trump. when they square off tonight in several hours from now, she's expected to employ a different strategy. let's get the latest from cnn's jeff zeleny. >> reporter: that's right, hillary clinton is getting ready for her third and final debate with donald trump she's preparing just as much as she did for the first two but i'm told in a very different way. now, she's actually familiarizing herself with all of the campaign e-mails in previous statements that have been unearthed through the stolen hacked e-mails published by wikileaks. it's a new development in the campaign. something she is preparing for. something she expects donald trump will go after. she will also go after what donald trump is calling a rigged election. she'll be pushing back on that hard, perhaps as a way to get under donald trump's skin. she's also going to make the case for why she can be the president for all americans. now, of course, that message is aimed at getting some republicans, some moderate
1:36 am
voters who may not have been open to voting for her but they simply cannot vote for donald trump. overall, that is her objective in tonight's debate trying to make the case, "a," she's presidential. and "b," even if you don't love her, you may still want to vote for her, donald trump in the eyes of the clinton campaign is simply not fit to be president. donald trump will be getting his last licks in. this is the last time before a big audience for raise his case. raising questions about her honestly and truft worthiness without question. tonight's debate will set the stage for the rest of the campaign less than three weeks away from election day. john and christine. >> thank you so much. debate number three is tonight. cnn here now and all day long. christine romans. >> all day and all night. we don't even know what time it is in vegas. we don't even need to know. president obama has a message for donald trump, quit
1:37 am
whining. the commander in chief calling out trump for his repeated claims this election is rigged. obama mocking the gop for what he calls a dangerous unprecedented attempt on the nation's office. michelle kosinski has more. >> hi, john and christine, in case you haven't noticed president obama is happy to speak his mind on donald trump. it's clear that he sees opportunities. listen to what he said yesterday when asked about donald trump's recent comments on a rigged election. >> that is both irresponsible, and by the way, doesn't really show the kind of leadership and toughness that you want out of a president. you start whining before the game's even over? if whenever things are going
1:38 am
badly for you and you lose, you start blaming somebody else? then you don't have what it takes to be in this job. >> president also took a heavy shot, not just at donald trump's praise of russian president vladimir putin but also again for republicans who continue to support donald trump. and as we wind down the days before this election actually happens, we can expect to see, again, president obama and the first lady out on the campaign trail this week. john and christine. >> all right, michelle kosinski. top issue for millennial voters and their parents. stupid loan debt. brand new report shows grads are leaving college with more debt than ever before. here are the grim numbers. the average student loan at graduation is now $30,100. that's up 4% from the last year. that amounts in $300 a month. think about that, these kids are graduating $300 in debt payments every month for ten years.
1:39 am
those averages are higher because that does not include students at for profit colleges. most students at for profit colleges do take out loans and they tend to borough higher amounts. private schools cost families an average of $26,400 last year. v% of median income. the amount of students taking automatic loans for college may have plateaued though. right now, 68% of kids have taken out loans in in 1983, less than half. and top that at 24% at 2012. and hillary clinton inviting two billionaires. real billionaires, not fake billionaires like donald trump, donald trump is bringing a relative of president obama needling the president about his half brother. more on earl"early start" next.

1:44 am
john berman here at the university of nevada in las vegas. where the anticipation is building, along with the crowd. we have at least three, four, five people here maybe. i expect we could get to a dozen by 5:30 eastern time. as the excitement building for tonight. the third and final debate between hillary clinton and donald trump. our thanks to the students for sticking to their study plans and being here to support us on this debate. both candidates, they will be bringing guests to the debate tonight. hillary clinton bringing a couple of billionaires. mark cuban will be there owner of the dallas mavericks. and hewlett-packard ceo meg whitman will be there as well. donald trump invited president obama's kenyan-born half brother malik who is reportedly
1:45 am
supporting donald trump. and donald trump also inviting patricia smith the mother of benghazi victim sean smith. saying she holds hillary clinton responsible for her son's death. donald trump and hillary clinton they did not shake hands prior to the second debate. we do not know if they will or will not tonight. but we do know there will be no handshakes between the candidates' family members beginning at the debate. that is because, reportedly, the clinton campaign requested a new setup. according to the "the new york times" family members will now enter the hall closer to their assigned seats, instead of crossing each other's paths on stage like you're seeing right now. sources tell cnn that the clinton team is worried about a stunt like donald trump pulled in the second debate, seating in the crowd. people who have accused president clinton of past sexual misconduct. christine romans, back to you. a new undercover video
1:46 am
appears to be going democratic operatives of how to have trump supporters in acts of violence. the video suggests that the operatives hired by the dnc may have had a chance in instigating violence. now, two people now out of their jobs as more questions are raised. snrch investigative correspondent drew griffin breaks it all down for us. >> reporter: the undercover videos produced by discredited conservative activist james o'keefe suggested that democratic operatives hired political activists, working in coordination with the dnc to instigate violence and incite reactions at trump rallies. and one of the under cover videos, scott phobele, a subcontractor for a dnc hired firm supposedly describes how he does it. >> it's a script, script of
1:47 am
engagement. sometimes the crazies bite and sometimes the crazy don't fight. the mediaological cover it no matter where it happens. initiating the conflict by having leading conversations with people. and honestly, it is not hard to get some of these assholes to pop off. >> right. >> it's a matter of showing, once you get into a rally in a planned parenthood t-shirt. or trump is a nazi. you know, a you can message to draw them out and draw them to punch you. >> reporter: according to the undercover video it was this man that the democratic national committee turned to, bob creamer is the hunt of jan schakowsky. s he, too, was caught on
1:48 am
undercover video, here is how he was hired by the democratic national committee to stage press conferences wherever the trump campaign showed up. >> wherever trump and pence are going to be at events. >> okay. the. >> we have a whole team across the country that does that, both consultants and people from the campaign. and, you know, my role in the campaign is to make it go away. >> reporter: creamer stepped down from the campaign today and announced his subcontractor scott foval was no longer working for his firm. both the dnc and the clinton campaign denied any coordination with anything involving the incitement of violence. creamer herself told cnn his former contractors were committing barroom talk, insisting none of what is described by foval actually happened. in a statement, creamer writes
1:49 am
we regret the unprofessional and careless hypothetical conversations that were captured on hidden cameras of a regional contractor for our firm. he is no longer working with us. the clinton campaign respond, while project veritas has been known to offer misleading video out of context, some of the language and tactics referenced are troubling. we support the democratic national committee appropriate action addressing this matter and look forward to continue waging a campaign of ideas worthy of our democratic process. james o'keefe is a convicted criminal, they add, with a history of doctoring video to advance his ideological agenda. >> drew griffin, thank you for that. the dnc says there is no evidence that anything described on the tapes actually happened. they will investigate whether james o'keefe broke the law to get the undercover recordings. and the partnership said it was
1:50 am
breached and betrayed in all forms. if you've ever wanted to own a piece of trump real estate. tonight may be your chance. you'll have to outbid the competition. that's right, donald trump slept here when we get it next on money.

1:54 am
welcome back to "early start." the operation to liberate mosul could take two months. that assessment from a kurdish military commander after day dwof this offensive. nearly 100,000 troops are marching right now on iraq's second largest city. their mission to bring an end to more than two years of isis rule. we're also receiving word of a dangerous situation unfolding in the last hour. want to get more on that fromism
1:55 am
rbil from michael holmes. >> reporter: christine, as both iraqi and kurdish forces move closer to mosul what they're doing is a very deliberate, methodical advance taking in villages as they go. what we're hearing obviously shows such clearing is not an exact science. we just had a disturbing report in the last hour or so. that some iraqi soldiers, we don't know exactly how many have in fact been surrounded by isis fighters. this is near a village about 15 miles south of mosul. we're still checking into the details of that. the feeling is that they went through some villages, kept on moving, but isis fighters were left behind. perhaps fighting in those villages. came up behind them, surrounding them at the moment. still obviously a very dangerous situation and waiting to get more information on that. however, the iraqi command this is that they're going to
1:56 am
continue to liberate towns on their way to mosul. in fact, the commander of one division told cnn that his forces have destroyed dozens of suicide vehicles. they've cleared a large number of i ed and bobby traps and killed at least 50 fighters in the last two days. they've also, and this possibly ties into what happened with these soldiers now reportedly surrounded. there are these networks of tunnels that are in these toungs and villages, reportedly right throughout mosul as well, used to transport fighters and weaponry around the battlefield. reports that food found in one of those tunnels was still warm. so you can get a sense of what's going on underground. and the key now is to hold those areas they've taken, before they can move closer on to mosul. as you said, it's perhaps two weeks before they're told everything is likely in place to assault mosul itself. and then once inside the city. the battle itself to retake it could take two months and
1:57 am
