tv CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin CNN October 25, 2016 12:00pm-1:01pm PDT
so here's what i want you to know. the next four years we are going to change some things in america, right? [ applause ] i do want to get the economy working for everyone not just those at the top and we're going to do that along with other positive changes but we are not going to change the fundamental value that made america the greatest nation in the history of the world. i think it all started -- i think this all started when george washington refused to become a king, right? now, donald trump probably would have called him a loser. instead that was one of the most important decisions any president has ever made. eight years, it's time to move on. we fought a revolution so that we would not have a king. we would not be subjects, we
would be independent citizens, i cherish that idea, so here's the good news. americans are coming together at the very moment when donald trump is making an unprecedented attack on our democracy. millions of people are registering, voting early and volunteering in this campaign. [ cheers and applause ] and here's something very exciting. we have reached a milestone. more than 200 million americans are now registered and that includes 50 million young people, the most ever in history! [ cheers and applause ] and you know what? more than six million people have already voted and more than one million of them are right here in florida. [ cheers and applause ]
so i think you only see numbers like this when people are standing up for what they really believe in, and that includes not just democrats but republicans and independents coming together to reject hate and division and i am so excited about what that means. but the energy we are seeing across florida and america is not just because of what we are against, it's about what we're for. it really is, it's about fighting for that future where every counts, everyone has a place and no one is left out or behind. but i want you to know we still have a lot of work to do. i feel good but boy i'm not taking anything for granted. i'm going to work as hard as i can between now and the close of the election next two weeks from today. and you know it's so important
for florida. there are so many issues we need to remind people about. last time i was here i campaigned with al gore and he said a lot about the climate crisis and you know what? we're seeing the reality of climate change everyday in florida. we are seeing areas in miami even on sunny days without a drop of rain where the streets are flooding and the ocean is rising. and what we've got to do is make sure that in issue, fighting climate change, creating clean renewable energy jobs stays at the top of the priorities and that's why you need a new senator like patrick murphy. i have to say nobody should want to wake up on november 9 and wonder whether there was more you could have done.
i hope you will wake up on november 9 proud that you took a stand and voted for an america that belongs to all of us where we set big goals and we work together to adhooef them i believe america is great because america is good. i want to say one other thing that is very important to me. we should honor the men and women in uniform who fight for our country. [ cheers and applause ] that's why i was so appalled when donald trump tweeted that the new effort under way to push the terrorists out of the key city of mosul is already -- and i quote him -- a total disaster.
and that our country is, again, "looking dumb." really? he's declaring defeat before the battle has even started. he's proving once again to be unqualified as commander in chief of our military. here's another example. he was asked if he would defend our allies. he said first he'd want to know if they made any payments to us to defend them. with when asked specifically about israel he said -- and i'll quote again -- he would love to be neutral. we can't have a president who says he's neutral on monday, pro-israel on tuesday and who knows what on wednesday because in his mind everything is negotiable. i have a different view. with stand with our allies, we stand with those who will help us defeat terrorism!
[ cheers and applause ] . so i get pretty excited and with your help we'll make the biggest investment in new jobs since world war ii. jobs and infrastructure and advanced manufacturing and clean renewable energy. and small businesses is i want us to make america the clean energy superpower of the 21st century. we can create millions of jobs and protect our planet at the same time and i have to say no state, no state should care more about this issue than florida, right? and you know, i'll tell you something, it's kind of sad to be honest with you. i've traveled all over the country in new jersey and massachusetts they have more solar power than the sunshine state. why? because you have a governor and
a legislature who, like your current senator, doesn't want to believe the science of climate change. doesn't see the opportunity that florida has to be literally the global leader in clean energy. and so i want to deploy a half billion more solar panels by the end of my first term and enough clean energy to power every home in america within ten years. and we're also going to strengthen education at every level starting with universal pre-k and working with our teachers to make sure every child has a good school with good teachers in every zip code. and here's what i want all the students to hear, we're going to make college more affordable for everyone! [ cheers and applause ] you know, after our primary --
which was hard fought -- and i was proud of that primary, it was about issues. senator sanders and i got together, came up with a plan to make public colleges and universities tuition free for any families making less than $125,000 a year. [ cheers and applause ] that's the vast majority of families and if you're over that we're going to make it debt free, so pay what you can afford, but i don't want to see young people and their families going into debt. i view this as an investment, and that's why we'll make it easier for you to afford to pay back your college debt. pay it down and pay it off and i also want more pathways to good jobs that don't require a four-year college degree, let's return technical education to high schools. let's do more with our community colleges. let's have more apprenticeship programs so that everybody has a chance at a good job and in
addition to making the economy grow and making sure people are ready with the skills to do these jobs, i want to make it fairer. that's why i want to raise the national minimum wage. if you work full time -- [ cheers and applause ] you shouldn't still be in poverty and don't you think it is finally maybe past time to guarantee equal pay for women's work? [ cheers and applause ] and you know, i always tell crowds this is not a woman's issue, it's a family issue, if you have a wife, a mother, a sister or daughter working it's your issue and that's why we have got to get this fixed once and for all and let's make child care affordable and let's have more profit sharing and let's do the kinds of things that will lift everybody up.
now when i talk about raising equal pay for women as one of my primary issues, you know, donald trump or somebody always says well there she goes playing the woman card and i've got to tell you, i don't believe that is what it is. i think we're playing the smart card because we want everybody's incomes to go up. that's how we're going to get this economy really moving forward, creating new jobs and so if that's playing the woman card, you know what we say "deal me in." [ cheers and applause ] i've also said i will pledge not to do anything that would raise taxes on people making less than
$250,000 a year. we can go where the money is, the millionaires and billionaires, the corporations to make them pay their fair share. we'll close the loophole and make sure no multimillionaire can get away with paying a lower rate than a nurse or police officer or teacher. remember when we learned in one of the debates that donald trump hadn't paid any federal taxes? [ boos ] for about 20 years is the best guest we've got and his excuse -- i loved his excuse. his excuse was, well, he lost a billion dollars in a year. i have been really pondering this. how does anybody use a billion dollars in a year especially when you're running casinos.
think about it has ever anybody here ever been to a casino 1234 you know, usually they say the house wins so donald trump said it was smart for him to avoid paying taxes, well, if losing a billion dollars is smart i think that's kind of upside down and backwards, i think people should be working hard to make their incomes to support their families and that is what we're going do. we're going to pull away from this. you heard the crowd singing "happy birthday." it's her birthday tomorrow. she pointed out how in the last debate what bothered her the most is that trump refused to say whether or not he'd respect and accept the results of the election. reminded everyone last time she was in florida was with al gore and just then talking about affordable child care. but jeff zeleny, let me bring you in, senior political correspondent there. one of the big notes today, biggest headline is on obamacare
this report premiums are up 22% and this could help, obviously, republicans,ing this something i have not heard her mention just yet, am i wrong? >> you're not wrong, brooke, she has not mentioned the rising health care premiums in the wake of obamacare or affordable care act. she didn't say that so far in this rally, her campaign advisors have pointed us to previous statements she's made. we asked her advisors on the flight down here from new york if she was going to address it and they said she knows that the system needs to be improved upon and they have issued a statement, a very brief written statement but she did not respond to that here. her husband, former president bill clinton in north carolina, he did. he was talking about it but the reality is this is an 11th hour liability for her. it's a challenge for republicans as well, repealing the law is not what the majority of
americans wants, either but brooke she won't be able to get through the next two weeks of this campaign not talking about this issue. >> important for floridians, i know 47% of those exit polls said they want to repeal obamacare, that was in the state of florida. premiums going up 19% there, it's an issue in fl. >> right, that was four years ago. >> jeff, keep lj, let's be fair, if she brings it up i want to know. jeff zeleny, thank you, let's talk a little bit more about this, sarah huckabee sanders is a senior trump advisors and we also have the vice president of legal progress with the center for american progress so ladies, thank you so much for being with me. >> thank you. >> you bet, good afternoon. >> still have my ear out to see how hillary clinton addresses that and donald trump is speaking, we eel see how he addresses the premium spike for
obamacare but michelle let's begin with you. republicans are saying "we told you so." are they right? >> the congressional budget office looked at the aca and we knew that we were going to see this spike, but contrary to popular belief, we are not in crisis. we are in a situation where we're -- we have a one-time correction and the reality is the aca has now -- we now have coverage for 90% of americans nationwide. so for those who haven't lived a charmed life or have had to deal with medical bankruptcy, we can rest assured there's coverage and not only coverage but tax credits to reduce the amounts individuals and families have to pay. >> democrats are saying we started with the premiums low but when you look state by state and you look at, for example, arizona, which i know hillary clinton is hoping to turn blue, the premiums are going up there
116%. granted, in mike pence's home state of indiana it is going down. you see on the right side it's in negative territory but even so republicans will pounce on this, trump could, michelle, win these states like perhaps in arizona, perhaps in florida on this issue. do you think? >> the reality is we know that 72% of people will still be able to afford a plan where they'll pay less than $75 a month and we also know that hillary clinton has been very clear in saying that we need to make this more affordable, that we have to do things like provide a public option and an opt in for families and individuals but donald trump hand late out a plan to fix the problem. you hear republicans and donald trump saying let's throw it away. for 20 million people across the country, that's not a viable option. >> sara, respond to what you've heard from michelle and to her point what is trump's plan?
we hear him say repeal -- reject, but then what? >> look, let's go back to one of the things she said that i think is one of the saddest comments i've heard in this entire debate. they said they knew this would go up. where was that comment when we were talking about this in the first place? i never remember anybody saying premiums would go up. if anything they said that wouldn't happen, they've lied to the american people about this program from day one. this was supposed to be the affordable care act, this has been anything but affordable and it will go on to interrupt some states because those subsidies will be passed down and they can't operate under that. it's a terrible, terrible plan, donald trump has a plan not just to repeal it but replace it with tax-free health savings accounts but also to create competition across state lines, something that has to have is to have xi tigs so you can brink costs down. that's something democrats have failed to do and frankly i think it's almost pathetic they've
lied to the american people about this plan from day one knowing premiums would go up and they ignored that and said you could keep your doctor, you couldn't, this has been one failure after another since this plan started. >> michelle, she said you lied twice. i want to respond to that. >> i'm so glad you came back to me, brooke, because the reality is what's pathetic is we're talking about 20 million people in this country -- let me be clear -- 20 million people who don't have to worry about medical bankruptcy, who don't have to worry about being denied coverage because they're a woman and we know there are certain people like trump who have an issue with women and quite frankly our health care system had a problem with women adds well in some places being a woman was a pre-existing condition. when you look at the fact that we are now at a record low, 90% of americans had some coverage in fwi2015 and more than 72% of americans in this country will have plans less than 75% -- $75
a month. that is progress. >> i'm hanging on your every word but we are now officially 14 days out from election day, this is a big story today. this helps republicans, make no doubt about it and again i go back to arizona, a state i know hillary clinton would love to grab from trump. how much does this story worry you? >> i'm not worried because hillary clinton has laid out a plan not only to make the affordable care stronger but more competitive and affordable for families across the country. i have yet to hear from ms. huckabee sanders or anybody else a real plan for the american people and that's a major distinction. if you go to book stores across this country you can pick up "stronger together." there's a full litany of hillary clinton's policy proposals. there are others like me who talk about what we can do to make the system better. until you have a plan i don't think the american people are interested in hearing the hyperbolic rhetoric.
>> first of all, let's go back to medical bankruptcies. some people may not be facing medical bankruptcy but our country is going to face bankruptcy because we cannot afford this program, hillary clinton -- it's already too much to pay for as it is and hillary clinton wants to double down and expand it beyond what it is. a state like arizona cannot survive under this. >> sara, let me jump in, is this something we will hear? will he stay on this issue for the next two weeks? will he hammer this home? >> absolutely and rightfully so. the democrats have put a plan in place that we can't pay for, they lied about it throughout the entire process with zero transparency and a lot of people and states will be penalized and go bankrupt because they can not afford this program, we should hammer it home. it's another example of the failed policies of the obama/clinton machine and something hillary clinton will have to wear around her neck. her own husband said it was crazy and i think that tells us
a lot and everything we know to know about how bad this has been for our country and how bad it will be moving forward if we don't have somebody from outside of the broken system that can come in, shake things up and make drastic changes in washington and hillary clinton is anything but somebody that can change washington. >> we have to let the voters be the judge. we've heard fairly from both sides. we'll continue to do so for the next two weeks. michelle and sarah, thank you both. >> thank you. >> coming up next, for a man who doesn't let down his guard, donald trump made a big admission today about which state he says he needs to win the white house. plus, she is the woman in charge of managing donald trump. cnn goes behind the scenes for a day in the life of kellyanne conway and i'll speak live with a veteran forced to repay his bonus for joining the military and going to war. hear what the pentagon told him when he complained. i'm brooke baldwin and this is cnn

. welcome back, you're watching cnn, i'm brooke baldwin. all campaign eyes on the state of florida today. we heard from hillary clinton just north of ft. lauderdale speaking on the eve of her birthday and donald trump speaking any moment in sanford, florida. i have chief political correspondent -- chief, right? >> you got it. >> i've said it a million times, my friend dana bash. a man who doesn't acknowledge things? donald trump said on fox, yes, i need florida to win the election. >> right, which is -- the very sophisticated way of putting it is duh. having said that, he could win without florida, it's just
incredibly hard, incredibly hard to do it mathematically. he'd have to turn several red states -- blue states red whereas with florida he'd have to do that in fewer other states turning all or any of the blue states red is going to be difficult. it's why he's been spending so much time. and they're hoping because it's such a second home with mar-a-lago and everything, that there's that possibility. >> colin powell. we're waiting to get confirmation. colin powell, former secretary of state in the george w. bush cabinet told a long island group during a lunchen that he will vote for hillary clinton. his chief of staff confirmed his
comments to elise labott, our correspondent important to remind everyone, general powell supported barack obama in '08 and in '12 so -- still, though, it's a moment. >> he's a republican. >> it's a moment in time, a moment to mark no question about it. >> he's been voting for a democratic president two elections, one president, barack obama, as you mentioned. he has said with regard to the iraq war he and the bush administration made miz stakes but this is donald trump's whole foreign policy argument is it was a disastrous mistakes and he's been hitting the bush administration hard. he's one of the people in the bush administration. >> but we reported e-mails and they were sitting around dinner,
both former secretaries, the note on the suggestion of private e-mail and he felt like the clinton team threw him under the bus. >> there's baggage. but separate from that you made a good point, she did the job but if you take away the -- the personal questions, the questions of disclosure, the question of throwing -- one throwing the under under the bus on that issue of e-mails and the server, at the end of the day he knows how hard it is to be secretary of state. i'm not sure how he phrased it but i suspect he said she would make the best commander-in-chief, end of story. >> we'll wait to get the actual transcript. former secretary of state under president george w. bush says he is with her at a luncheon in long island, new york.

woman closest to him right now during this crazy election season, his campaign manager kellyanne conway. dana bash is still with me. dana, you spent, what, part of sunday and monday with her and her children. is it as crazy as you would think? >> yes. it's crazy for any parent who has four small children but it's quite different because her job is different but i wanted to talk to her because people are really fascinated by the fact that she's on tv all the time explaining, defending donald trump and a lot of people say what is she really like? does she believe the things she says? we went to new jersey because she invited us to her house to find out. morning at the conways. >> which jacket? >> reporter: scrambling to get the kids ready for school. familiar chaos for any parent,
though kellyanne conway is not any parent. >> kellyanne conway bluntly acknowledging the uphill climb. >> reporter: the mother of four young children is donald trump's campaign manager, on tv so much explaining and defending her boss "saturday night live" dedicated an entire bit to imagining her day off. this is so weird, this is exactly the way theest ne es"sn lo looked. >> the pancakes are true to life. >> reporter: conway has been on the job since august, trump's third campaign manager but the first woman ever to run a gop presidential race. >> i wasn't hired because of my gender. but it's a special responsibility. >> reporter: and you have beoft difficult one when trump went off script attacking the women who say he groped them. >> all of these liars will be sued after the election is over. >> reporter: do you tear your
hair out when you hear him say that? >> it's his campaign and he has to feel comfortable with his voice and choice. >> you're the campaign manager, do you feel comfortable? >> i think donald trump is at his very best when he talks about the issues. >> reporter: translation, going off message hurts his campaign. conway insists she's tough on trump in private. >> i don't sugar coat. >> reporter: give me an example, i'm donald trump and you're kellyanne conway and i say something that makes you mad. >> i told him yesterday on the plane you and i are going to fight for the next 17 days and he said why and i said because i know you're going to win and that comment you made sounds like you think you're going to lose and we're going to argue about it until you win. >> reporter: what was his response? >> he's like, okay, honey, then we'll win. >> reporter: for a time after conway took over trump was disciplined but not anymore. especially on twitter. >> literally people will seriously say can't you delete his twitter app? >> reporter: that was one of my questions.
>> not for me to take away a grown man's twitter account. >> i moved on her very heavily. >> reporter: when tape of 2005 came out of trump describing lewd behavior, conway canceled sunday tv appearances but helped with damage control. >> i feel lycra pen zeike rapun tower all weekend. i told mr. trump i found the comments to be horrible a and indefensible and he didn't ask anybody to defend him. >> reporter: did you consider quitting? >> i do not. >> reporter: she says she thought his apology was earn es. the women who have come forward and said "it's not talk, donald trump groped me," do you believe them? >> donald trump has told me and his family and the rest of america that none of this is true, these are lies and fabrications, all made up and i think that it's not for me to judge what those women believe. i've not talked to them, i've
talked to him. >> reporter: she was raised in new jersey by a single mom, aunts and grandmother, all women. as a political pollster, she chose to work in what she calls a man's world, especially as a republican. she recalled a potential client, a man, asking how she balanced kids and work. it's like, i hope you ask all the male consultants are you going to give up your wicked golf game and your mistresses because they seem really busy, too. >> reporter: still, like most working moms, time with her kids is precious. the question is whether she'll have more time in two weeks after election day. when she was hired in august, she told trump he was losing but could still win. you think at this point it's still possible? >> it's still possible to win. >> reporter: probable? >> i think we have a very good chance of winning. >> brooke, the irony is that kellyanne has spent most of her professional life focused for her clients, both corporate and
critical, on trying to explain how to reach women, both consumers and female voters. it's not something she has been successful with with her current climate, the republican nominee. >> it was awesome seeing the behind-the-scenes. i would love to see more kate mckinnon as kellyanne, she nailed it on "snl." i'm sure she's flattered. thank you so much. >> thank you, brooke. coming up, donald trump's plane just landed in sanford, florida. cue the music, ready to see the man walk down those stairs expected to take the stage at his rally any moment now. you pay your car insurance

to begin with but they were paid out due to oversight by mismanagement of military staff now the government wants its money back. it's worth mentioning the lie i wlaengs puts the problem on the national guard. >> sergeant first class brian strother is joined by his attorney. gentlemen. let me begin with you. >> thank you, brooke. >> brian, you're offered this $15,000 bonus to return to your position. >> i was ordered to a retention seminar, one-star general making these contractual offers for reenlistment up to six years, $15,000 in bonus student loan repayments. i hesitated, i had just come back from a deployment within
that year and took the bait, went on the deployment, was ordered to iraq three months later, exercised that deployment in good faith. five years later i got my congressman involved and they responded to a collection letter they have sent out to thousands of people stating we were in violation of state and federal law simply for reenlisting and that we could contact an attorney or chaplain. and there began the appeal process. the appeal process that's continuing to this day. yesterday i received this in the mail concerning the student loans and in here there's several mistakes, mistakes that can be looked at with my paycheck stub. they have the wrong amount on here as to here. there's accusations that i've proved wrong.
it's all about good faith. it's within the language of the filing of the lawsuit that the attorney who had to fly across the country out here to california working pro bono when our congressman, our senators could wave the magic and with. >> pro bono. >> and relieve this. >> pro bono to help. let me just say though you did spend four years, right? you were fighting these claims. help us understand how difficult that was for you. >> it's been ten years. that's the average half of a military career of 20 years and my thought is they're just legal foot dragging. i was going to get out at 19 years a year ago when they started recouping from out of my paycheck which really upset me,
my commander and first sergeant convinced me to stay in. that was when attorney willman got involved, he came out here, we filed this class action lawsuit and magically with appeal after appeal they come back and there's a good faith exception and this isn't what's getting out there and this is what's in the language of the lawsuit that every one of these veterans needs to look at and use. it's a good faith exception. they said i did that contract with good faith, executed in good faith. >> but because of that and this is for your attorney to daniel, you still continue to fight this suit, why is that? >> thank you, brooke. what they're trying to say about br bryan's case is that this is moot because he got financial relief and the thing is there's so many tens of thousands of people impacted by this. there's a series of case law called people of reputation
evading judicial review and bryan's case is -- this is the first and only case that i know of where so far along in the process they were so close to take this up to an appellate court whether to win or lose if bryan's case became moot somebody else would have to start from ground zero to get this case to where it is. i keep hearing people in the military talking about good faith and the only place i heard about it is when i researched the military code. there's already a good faith exception in there, it's just applied in an arbitrary manner, it's not applied across the board and if they embraced that language in there -- i would love to have congress step in, make this go away. >> they might, let me jump in, california congressman adam schiff told cnn there should be
a solution. there's been talk of them jumping in to wave all of this. we're going stay on this, gentlemen, i have to go. appreciate your time. sergeant, this is important for you and i know other soldiers as well. i promise we'll cover this at cnn. i want to thank both of you very, very much. >> thank you so much. let's pivot to florida now and to donald trump. let's listen. >> the lines at the voting booths are record. clause and i notice that a lot of the people on lines, you see the pictures, they're wearing the red hat, the white hat, this hat, they're wearing all -- they're wearing buttons all over the place. i think those are people that are inclined to vote for us, do you agree?

in that hangar. after the first few hours they realized that's not going to work too well. that's fantastic. thank you, everybody. look at that. we're going to have a big victory. the lines are record-setting, which i knew they would be. a lot of people are being very surprised. it's very, very surprising. we're getting a big vote. so it's going to be a little early to tell you what those numbers are, but it's a big, big vote in the state of florida. we're leading iowa. we're leading ohio. we're doing great in north carolina. pennsylvania we're going to a lot. i think we're going to do great there. they put the miners out of work. we're putting the miners back to work. i think we're going to do great there. 75% of the american people think our country is on the wrong track. every poll says it. we are going to fix it, and we are going to get our country
back on the right track very, very quickly. together we're going to deliver real change that, once again, puts america first. that begins with immediately repealing and replacing the disaster known as obamacare. you saw what happened yesterday. the rates are going through the sky. we all knew that. i knew it before it was passed. i have been saying this for a long time. my first day in office, i am going to ask congress to put a bill on my desk getting rid of this disastrous law and replacing it with reforms that expand choice, freedom, affordability. you're going to have such great health care at a tiny fraction of the cost. and it's going to be so easy.
it's just been announced that americans are going to experience another massive, double-digit hike. now, they said 25%. forget -- you'll take 25%. it's going to be 60%, 70%, 80%, 90%. in the great state of arizona it's over 100%. it is crazy. one in five americans trapped in obamacare will only have a single insurer to negotiate with in your state. congratulations. lots of fun. you're going to have to brush up on your negotiation ability, believe me. even bill clinton admitted obamacare is the craziest thing in the world, where people wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half. then he was forced to take it back the following day because that night he suffered greatly. he suffered.
because hillary clinton wants to double up and triple up on obamacare. the numbers will go through the roof. your taxes will double and triple. and in the end, it's not affordable. you can't do it. the democratic governor of minnesota said the affordable act -- remember this -- the affordable care act is no longer affordable. he doesn't know what to do. but i said this before it was passed. it couldn't have worked in a million years. insurers are leaving, companies are fleeing. by the way, it's putting your companies out of business, it's putting your small businesses out of business. and hillary clinton -- here is another thing we can say. i am going to repeal it and replace it. she is going to expand it, and it's going to get more and more expensive. it's no good anyway. because the deductibles are so high -- i mean, unless you have a really long-term serious
problem at the highest level, you're never going to be able to use it, folks. hillary clinton wants to double down on obamacare and make it even worse. she wants to put the government totally in charge of your health care, despite the fact it's no good. it will be much more expensive than even today. repealing obamacare and stopping hillary's health care takeover is one of the single most important reasons that we must win on november 8th. [ cheers and applause ] >> boy, this is a big crowd, by the way. a lot of people. that's a lot of people.
thank you. you know, it is funny, because, you know, you listen to this phony media. i get a call an hour ago. and they say, sir, we have a problem. i say, oh, here we go. what is it? they said this. and i laugh. but they said, the people don't fit into the hangar. i said, but that's a good problem, isn't it? change has to come from outside our corrupt system. the fact that the washington establishment has tried so hard to stop our campaign, which is actually a movement. this is a movement, folks. and this is the last time we're going to have a chance -- four years, it's over. it's over. in four years you don't have a chance. all these characters that want to run in four years, they can forget it. they're wasting their time. you don't have even a little bit of a chance. this is it. and we're really close.
we're going to win florida. by the way -- no, no. these guys won't tell you that because they don't want to hear about it. but when they interview -- when they interview -- these are the most corrupt people. when they interview the people standing on the line and they say, trump, trump, trump, trump -- they say, all right, let's get out of here. this is bad. this is bad news. these are the most dishonest, almost as dishonest as crooked hillary. i love those pink sign iss i love those pink sign isigns. women for trump. [ cheers and applause ] >> i love the signs behind me! blacks for trump. i like those signs.
blacks for trump. you watch. you watch. those signs are great. thank you. going to be a lot of -- there's going to be a lot of brexit happening in about two weeks. a lot of brexit. remember that? everybody went to bed. they said, oh, gee, i think it's not going to -- and i said it was going to happen. and they criticized me. can you believe this guy? can you believe this guy? just like crooked hillary. she had a rally. you know, her rallies last for about 15 minutes and there are very few people. but she talked about how we want peace at our rallies and this and that. she hired people, thugs, to go into my rallies, 1500 people. right? 1500 people. listen to this. $1,500 and an iphone. go in the rally and beat people up.
go into the rally and beat people up. and you remember, in pennsylvania, different places, in chicago, remember that one? where they were fighting. they found out our people are not so easy to beat up. that's for sure. but you remember -- remember they went in, and there was a policeman with blood pouring down his face. there was another one with a badly gashed -- this was all thugs put in there. then i am listening to her talk about peace at our rallies. we want peace. this is one of the great phonies of all time. she shouldn't be allowed to run for president with what she's done, i'll tell you right now. the fact that the washington establishment has tried so hard to stop this movement is only more proof that our campaign
represents the kind of change that only arrives once in a lifetime. this is once in a lifetime. i'm telling you, i opened the door, i looked out the window. i said, wow! it's so different from what they report. these people up here. they are the worst. and you know what it's called. by the way, you know what it's called, don't you? it's called voter suppression. because people give up. people give up. and we're going to win florida, and we're going to win iowa and we're going to win ohio, right? and i think we're going to win pennsylvania. and we're going to win north carolina. we're going to have a lot of victories. just keep it going, folks. we're fighting a -- >> you have been watching donald trump there, at a rally. sanford, florida.
i am brooke baldwin. thank you so much for being with me here in new york. we'll see you back here same time tomorrow. in the meantime. let's go to washington. "the lead" with jake tapper starts right now. thanks, brooke. hello, everyone. welcome to "the lead." i'm jake tapper. breaking this afternoon in our politics lead, donald trump is in sanford, florida, right now launching a sustained attack on president obama's signature health care law. jim acosta is there. jim, assailing obamacare, not new grist entirely for trump, but normally he doesn't focus as much on the health care law as he has been doing today. >> reporter: that's right, jake. donald trump is seizing on this latest report on obamacare that premiums will be going up 22% next year for consumers as sort of a late campaign season gift. earlier in his remarks a few moments ago trump said that these reports that the premiums going up 22% are just the beginning. they'll be going up, he
