fayetteville, north carolina. >> donald trump stormed in where he veered off message and suggests voters -- >> if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. although the second amendment people, maybe there is. i don't know. but i tell you what, that will be a horrible day. >> reporter: the clinton campaign said this is simple. what trump is saying is dangerous. a person seeking to be the president of the united states should not suggest violence in any way. a trump campaign statement said, quote, it's called the power of unification. second amendment people have amazing spirit and are unified. it gives them great power. this year, they will be voting in record numbers not for hillary clinton, for donald trump. trump hit clinton for being more of the same. >> hillary clinton is going to be four more years of obama but
maybe worse. four more years of isis. four more years of high taxes. >> reporter: trump's gop support continues to fray. susan collins of maine became the sixth republican senator to declare trump unworthy of being president. after the open letter from gop security experts panned the presidency, trump kissed them off as job applicants today. >> i'm not going to hire these people. i don't want these people. >> reporter: he made no changes to reassure doubters. >> i don't think it's appropriate to start changing when you have been winning. >> reporter: with 90 days to the election, he's focusing on four battleground states. ohio, where a new poll shows clinton with a tiny edge. florida, a dead heat and pennsylvania and in north carolina where it's a toss up. if clinton wins, he's in trouble.
>> if she gets elected, she will cause the destruction of this country from within. >> reporter: mitt romney won north carolina four years ago, mccain lost it eight years ago. if trump can't win, he could be in rough state in florida where he campaigns tomorrow and pennsylvania where he campaigns friday. clinton has been expanding their organization to utah. her camp suspended an ad run in that state. when he reached out to the secret service and asked about trump's second amendment remarks, they said the secret service is aware of the comment. custom airlie, by mission, they are required to investigate any threats to a principle of protectee. >> carl, thank you. the top republican in congress is on the ballot right now in wisconsin. house speaker, paul ryan, is facing a tougher primary. the shaky relationship with
trump does not help. >> reporter: the nation would otherwise pay little attention to a primary in wisconsin's first congressional district but for the fact donald trump weighed in. he initially refused to endorse paul ryan running for his z tenth term. trump endorsed with reluctance and the campaign moved forward with a profound absence of love between the nominee and the top republican in the house. >> i see no purpose of doing tit for tat with donald trump. it serves no good purpose in my mind. >> reporter: serves the purpose of putting knee lannon the map. >> he thought it was going to be a cake walk. he's trying to stage a comeback. >> she is an executive with a water filtration company. >> on a harley, tattoos on display. >> i'm a businessman. deportation of muslims. rejection of the transpacific
partnership and attacked ryan grown in a d.c. pea tree dish. >> make no mistake about it, paul ryan is the head of a snake. he represents everything that is wrong with politics. he's not working on our behalf, is he? >> reporter: ryan's team is confident going into the final days. the speaker outpaced him with fund raising, 17-1. still, they are taking the primary seriously. he's hitting campaign stops in southern wisconsin and working with talk radio, proven influential. he could withdrawal his endorsement with trump. with no affection in his voice, the party gave one nominee to work with. >> he won the votes fair and square. enough delegates to get the nomination and a convention occurred a couple peeks ago where he got the nomination. hegs the nominee. that's how it works in our party. >> reporter: the question is, can all this attention from trump put neelan on the top.
trump couldn't put himself over the top. he lost in this part of the state to ted cruz by 18 points. so, in the event that ryan wins, the party moves forward with a gaping wound between the republican nominee and the top republican in the house. doug? >> mike tobin in jamesville, wisconsin. this afternoon, we learned four more people in miami have been infected by zika, transmitted locally by mosquitos. that as hillary clinton is trying to make political points over the virus. she is blaming republicans for failing to pay for an adequate response. mike emanuel has that story from miami. >> reporter: hillary clinton went to a miami neighborhood clinic handling zika cases to press congress to get back to washington to pass emergency money to fight the virus. >> in fact, i would very much urge the leadership of congress to call people back for a special session and get a bill
passed. >> the house passed a $1.1 billion compromise package before leaving town. it got stuck over restrictions of planned parenthood funding. paul ryan said we agree with hillary clinton, but it's time to end the political gamesmanship and lift their hold on the house and the $1.1 billion zika bill. mitch mcconnell took a swipe at the running mate saying if they want to pass a bill now, they can end their filibuster. the father of the gunman who killed 49 people at the pulse club showed up at her event and got prime seating as he paid tribute. >> i know how many people, family members, loved ones and friends are still grieving and i want them to know that we will be with you. we will be with you as you
rebuild your lives. >> reporter: adding insult to injury, mateen told reporters he was a guest. >> i was invited by democratic party. i'm a member. as a member, i get the invitation. it's nothing particular about it. >> reporter: the cam pan and the democratic party denied the claim. there are concerns about the money raise zed. in a memo, clinton campaign manager sounded the alarm after trump raised $80 million in july writing this was far more than anyone expected and should be a wake up call to all hillary supporters. the clinton campaign is spending heavily, $13.6 million on advertising to reach a large audience watching the olympics. >> they are great ties. >> the ties are made where? in china? >> last night, the clinton campaign fell short failing to meet the fund raising goal this
past weekend. clearly, the clinton campaign leadership does not want that to become a trend. doug? >> we are hearing the candidates are already in a war of words about the general election debate or debates. what's going on with that. >> reporter: late last night, they said hillary clinton looks forwards to all three presidential debates. they signaled they are not interested in having a debate about debates or bargaining about them. this afternoon, trump said he looks forward to participating but expressed he has concerns, potentially concerns about moderators and he also was told two would be against nfl football games. the businessman may be trying to cut a better deal. doug? a long time aid to hillary clinton pressured her ian jor aides to provide a job for an unidentified associate according to a report in the hill. an e-mail exchange through the freedom of information act.

confidential and classified information. it compromised the location of ambassador chris stevens. chris was there in benghazi and is praising the parents for pushing back. >> i think it's a good thing. they are standing up. the system failed them, the system that was supposed to protect them and keep people accountable is not. >> reporter: the senior judicial says it likely will not stand-up in court. >> it might be logical, but it going to fail because of immunity. >> reporter: both parents calling them lifers or implying they are liars to protect and enhance her public image. for evidence, court documents point to an interview which clinton disputed both claims she told them the attack was caused by a youtube video, not terrorism. >> i don't hold ill feelings for someone who, no that moment, may
not fully recall everything that was or wasn't said. >> reporter: the clinton campaign is responding with a statement, no one can imagine the pain of the families there have been nine investigations and none found evidence of wrong doing on the part of hillary clinton. they are going to claim this is more of the same, especially since the parent's attorney has a long history of being critical of the clinton's and filed multiple lawsuits against them. doug? >> kristin fisher, thank you. coming up next, are turkey and russia getting too close for comfort for the u.s.? first, here are what fox affiliates are covering. fox 11 in los angeles has a massive wildfire in the mountains east of l.a., forcing people from their homes in san bernardino county and sending smoke plumes to las vegas. the flames erupted sunday. it's spread across ten square miles and consumed 7500 acres.

the economy to the tune of $743 billion. while president bush issued 426, president obama will reach 641 major regulations before he leaves the office boosting the regulatory bill to $800 billion. >> 600 regulations is an abstract. when you think about it, there are so many places the costs can go. they regulate like taxes. >> reporter: the effects of the taxes are widespread rksz coming in the form of higher medical cost because of regulations associated with obamacare, forexample, higher energy rates. excessive regulations restrict access to consumer credit under dodd frank. food prices are on the rise because of production rules. critics argue the president used his authority in effect to end run a hostile congress like the sweeping rule that extended

federal law enforcement is on on the action, too, mounting surveillance cameras on utility polls. privacy advocates in seattle are fighting back seeking location and investigation details for all of the federal cameras in the city. >> you and i have the right to privacy and a quiet conversation we have while walking down the street. we don't assume there's something with a microphone on the rooftop listening, even though we are in public. >> reporter: he was about the get the records but they sued to get the release. in a court filing in western washington, the fbi's use of pole camera technique is a powerful tool in fbi investigations and national security threats. >> reality is, they are the best witnesses we have. a lot of witnesses, i mean, i have been in the business a long time. you talk to a victim or a witness and a lot of times they are traumatized. when you get a picture and a camera, that doesn't lie. >> reporter: the u.s. district

she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. although the second amendment people, maybe there is. i don't know. i tell you what, that will be a horrible day. >> donald trump speaking off the cuff in wilmington, delaware. you heard what you thought you heard. different people are interpreting it differently. his staff tried to clear it up.
it's the power of unification. second amendment people have an amazing spirit and they are unified. this year, they will be voting in record numbers. it won't be for hillary clinton, it will be for donald trump. the clinton campaign responded very differently, as you can imagine. this is simple, what trump is saying is dangerous. a person seeking to be president of the united states should not suggest violence in any way. in a devastating tweet, elizabeth warren said, donald trump makes death threats because he's a coward and cant accept the fact he's losing to a girl. senior politics writer for u.s. news and world report, monica crowley and charles krauthammer. i'll ask you what charles asked me when he came in a moment ago. what was your first reaction? david? >> you know, i don't know what donald trump's intentions were. this is the problem. because every day we have a
statement that he leaves hanging out there. basically, open for interpretation. he just gave a follow up interview to a north carolina television station where he didn't renounce what he's being attacked for. what he's doing is easy. of course i didn't mean to insight or suggest violence, but he hasn't done that. the other thing i would say is that word ds do matter. presidents, they have to talk when there's national tragedy. they have to talk when there's mourning. when bad things happen. he's too careless with his rhetoric on this stuff and al w allows himself to be open for these multiple interpretation. the worst meaning. >> monica? >> when i first heard it, i thought he was referring to the political influence of gun rights advocates. clearly, i think that's what he meant but he's operating in an environment where mrs. clinton, her campaign is going to twist
every single thing he says. he's got to understand and be more precise with his language. it's clear, mrs. clinton, her campaign and the democrats do not want to talk about the issues. we just got gdp number that is are atrocious for the american worker. second quarter, 1.2% gdp growth. first quarter, .8%. we got a report today that said productivity is the lowest. it eegs the lowest since the 1970s. the average american worker is suffering. they don't want to talk about that. then she'd have to be in a position of defending the last eight years and democratic policies. she has been in the press and will do her dirty work for her. donald trump has to understand, that's what he's up against here. >> charles? >> well, when i first heard it, i thought he's talking nra folks lobbying against these judges. the alternative is too nuts,
even for trump, even in his offhanded remarks, even in his wise guy mode. i still think that's true. i can't quite believe he would have implied otherwise. how many times have we heard on this set or heard from every politician, every analyst, every democrat, every republican, of course, advising trump and saying you have to be responsible, watch your words. they say he turned the corner. he read a speech yesterday. it was coherent. that's not turning the corner. there's a matter of character. i don't think a man that age, a year and a few months into a campaign is going to become responsible. you don't say stuff like that. it can be seen otherwise. it's not the press. it's not the democrats. this is a self-inflicted wound. >> i think a lot of people thought after the economic club speech, he would go back into a precision of language or discipline. >> he said that a million times.
we have so many things it could be a ballet. >> speaking moments ago, he pretaped an interview with sean handy. here is a clip of it. >> nobody thought other than what you said. this is a political movement. this is a strong, powerful movement. hillary wanlts to take your guns away and leave you unprotected in your home. this is a tremendous, political movement. the nra endorsed me. they are terrific people. they tweeted, they agree 100% with what i said. there can be no other interpretation. reporters told me. give me a break. >> so many moderate republicans have been rearranging chairs on this ocean liner. a few of them dove off the ship. here is mark kirk in a political advertisement and senator susan collins of maine. >> mark kirk bucked his party to say donald trump is not fit to
be commander in chief. >> the republican party believes in the dignity and worth of the individual. based on what i have seen donald trump say over and over and over again. that is not his style. >> last night, 50 former national security advisers, high level people announced they will not vote for donald trump. they have worked in republican administrations. david, we are 90 days out. at least a month or more before the first debate. a lot can happen. >> yes, but the problem is, i mean, susan collins, no one knows her outside of maine. she's not going to have an effect on this election. the problem is, republicans are feeling emboldened to cut loose. national security officials, congressmen, senators. i was told by a republican consultant today, mitch mcconnell basically said, privately, to all the senators, you do what you need to do.
i'm not going to call you or press you to get on trump's band waggen. we are cutting you loose. that is a problem. he had a chance at the national convention to unite the party and make it hard for people to break loose. you are seeing a trickle. what were we talking last week? a jeb bush adviser. a chris christie adviser. this could own the news cycle week after week. >> loyalty is tentative for trump. >> democrats never do this. they always come together or at the very least, shut up andthei. sanders team doing exactly this. republicans always engage in the circular firing squad, without a doubt, every single time. look, donald trump can leverage this to his advantage if he is smart. he can take a look at this group of 50 national security people, most of whom are gorge w. bush people. hold up the letter, you know
what, you were the experts of 9/11, kept the borders open. by the way, where were you in four years when mrs. clinton was secretary of state? where were you on her disasters in benghazi, libya, iraq, iran. where were any of you during that. you want to criticize my words as a threat. no, her actions caused death and destruction including the lives of four americans. that's the kind of argument he should make. it's a very powerful one if he can sustain it. >> a damaging event is not national security people like susan collins. what she does is gives psychological cover to republicans. she is not nationally known. she is a moderate republican who is respected and very well liked in maine. what she does is tells republicans all over, remember, republicans are supporting trump and 78% where romney has in the 90s. she is saying to resist him.
psychologically okay. people say, oh, you want to elect hillary? what you are saying is a matter of conscious. i can't support him because of x, y and z. when she does it, it allows other people without her position or statue to do the same. next up, hillary clinton talks zika and does not talk benghazi. if legalzoom has your back.s, over the last 10 years we've helped one million business owners get started. visit legalzoom today for the legal help you need to start test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test ack

i'm asking the republican leaders in the house and the senate to call congress back in to session immediately and to pass the bipartisan funding bill that the senate passed. unfortunately, different bill was passed in the house and no agreement could be reached before they went out on recess. >> we recently saw a report that the money that had already been appropriated about $600 million had already been appropriated to combating zika only sun-sixth of that money has been spent already. there is still available money in the pipeline for zika. the democrats for purely political reasons have been trying to block it. >> even zika highly political in this day and age. secretary clinton calling for congress to come back to
washington and pass a zika funding bill. speaker of the house postoperative ryan saying the money is already there not with this bill bottled up in the senate h. but with the money for ebowlla. only 1/6th has been spent by the administration. back with the panel. monica, back with you. >> hillary clinton has seen herself as a champion of women and children and this particular virus does -- is very aggressive with pregnant women and newborn babies if the women are affected. from a political standpoint i understand why she is doing it the republicans are absolutely right there. is legislation on the table passed in the house. senate democrats blocked it because they disapproved of language in there that restricted some of the planned parenthood funding, also funding for environmental regulations. they are the ones who blocked this. if mrs. clinton were to be honest, which would be a first, she would say, look, that legislation could be passed. r. if senate democrats just went ahead with unanimous
consent and approved it. >> david, who is right about this. >> i think there is blame on both sides. hillary clinton made a brilliant local play. she is in florida we all know florida is important state in the presidential election. zika is in the press there. tomorrow all the headlines in southern florida is she wants to be above it all, bo congress, call them back to recess. what is she doing? looking presidential. looking like she is showing leadership. she is playing politics. of course she is. she is talking about zika funding which is imperative importance down there. and donald trump is explaining some comment that's being either misinterpreted or not. so she is winning that battle. >> look, this is clearly a political stunt. whenever the particularly there is an outbreak, natural outbreak, infection or something, the command is do something, whatever it is. now, ryan is right, the money is already there. there is half a billion
dollars. if you are in medicine, it's hard to spend all of that money in the weeks between now and when congress reconvenes. there is no need to reconvene congress. the money is available. the reason you want to do it is because it creates a stunt. the idea i want to do something i will call them back, it's an emergency, it highlights it but as a matter of reality, it makes no difference if the bill ultimately is passed. today or in a month. now, whether it's called ebola men or whether it's called zika money. when you do a clip call trial nobody cares what the money is called. it's how much there is. >> something else very strange happened on the campaign trailed in orlando early morning visit today. look who showed up behind her in the crowd. the father of the orlando shooter. i don't know if woe have video of it we showed it a little bit earlier. he was noticed by some miami reporters who confronted him after the rally. he had this to say.
>> i was invited by democratic party. i'm a member. so as a member, i get the invitation. it's nothing particular about it. >> i stand corrected that happened yesterday. first came to light, however later in the day. florida democratic party had this to say, quote. that claim which he just said is hundred percent false. the clinton campaign didn't invite him. the florida democratic party didn't invite him. he just showed up. could you imagine the coverage, monica if he showed up at donald trump party. >> that would be the enof the donald trump candidacy. they would be running that out on a rail which is what they wanted it anyway. look, the media hypocrisy is obvious. and transparent and everyone can see it the problem here for mrs. clinton is mr. mateen has openly supported the taliban. he has said that allah will punish guys. and so the question is here will mrs. clinton disavow him and his obvious support. he was beaming and cheering her on yesterday at this
rally. david duke who is the former grand wizard of the kk endorsed donald trump. when that happened, donald trump disavowed, disassociated himself and still the media went wild for weeks on end hounding donald trump. the question here is will mrs. clinton do the same? >> her campaign had no comments today on this. and when she was asked by reporters, she ignored the question. >> you forgot one point there, is he a democrat as well. charles 5 seconds, 10 seconds. >> this is somebody on the advance team who screwed up and should be now peddling fruit in lower miami. nothing to do with her. obviously she would disavow him. she should say yes, i disavow him. >> that's it for the panel. stay tuned for another sea world controversy. this one cuter than the rest. nfl sunday ticket you can watch your favorite team no matter where you live. like broncos or colts. (cashier) cool.

[ laughter ] oh my god. [ laughter ] >> that was an ipad by the way. maybe he mistook it for a
flounder or mackerel or something. thanks for watching "special report." good night from washington. "on the record" coming up next. this is a fox news alert. donald trump is on stage in fayetteville, north carolina. controversy swirling around comments he made about hillary clinton in an earlier rally. let's listen in for a few minutes. >> here is the only problem she came in totally legally. all right. but you will see it in a litigation while. i said to her, no, no. let it simmer for a little while. let them go wild. let it simmer and then let's have a little news conference. but they have to come in. and, by the way, we want people to come in to our country, but they have to come in legally.
