8:00 am
>> you cannot make this up. strong winds blew it away. they just keep going. martha: it is a movie. i find impressive. we will see you. jenna: you never know what you're going to find rolling down the street. john: we have to top that now. jenna: i don't know, it's going to be a challenge but we will do our best. we will start with politics. hillary clinton returning to the campaign trail following by a speech in washington tonight. back up and running on both campaigns. i'm jenna lee. john: i'm john scott. mrs. clinton coming after pneumonia kept her at home for three days. donald trump taking the lead in some key battleground states.
8:01 am
mike with more on that, mike. mike: john, with recent polls showing close race in ohio and florida, that makes north carolina critical. hillary clinton will campaign here in the tar heel state for the second time in a week. speaking of polls, take a look at the brand new new york times cbs news survey of likely voters. when third-party candidates gary johnson and jill stein are factored in, hillary clinton and donald trump are tied at 42% support. that set it is stage for clinton to return to the campaign trail today. the last time we saw her was sunday leaving her daughter's apartment after feeling ill at the 9/11 remember reins. since then former secretary of state colin powell, he would rather not vote for clinton calling her a 70-year-old person greedy. clinton gave powell a pass.
8:02 am
>> i have a great deal for respect for colin powell and i have a lot of sympathy for anyone's whose emails become public. i'm not going to discuss someone else's private emails. i have spent a lot of time talking about my own as you know. >> senior campaign aides are expected to keep close tabs on hillary clinton just coming back with the first critical presidential debate now 11 days away, they do not want to risk a health setback. john. john: mike emmanuel in north carolina. mike, thank you. jenna: we were just talking about north carolina, let's dig in some of the latest polls as well. first new york times cbs news poll showing hillary clinton at 46% to donald trump's 44%. according to a new cnn orc46 to
8:03 am
44%. all the candidates are asked about. as my next guest writes in latest crystal ball article, quote, trump has unquestionably made progress but he's yet to definitively take a lead in any state that voted for obama outside of indiana. he has a lot of work to do. let's talk about all of this with director of senate for politics at the university of virginia, there you are, larry, good to see you as always. >> thank you so much. but he's so dramatic person on the scene. he's the person that attracts the cameras, he's the person people talk about more than anyone else and he's defining fining who you're foreign against i think even more than hillary clinton though, there's some of that with her. i want to expreases that she's had the worst week of campaign and set her back in more ways
8:04 am
than one. she lost a lot of this ground in ohio and florida and even nationally during the past week. i guess it was a combination of the deplorables comment combine with the health scare, the fact that they weren't honest about it. so she's got a lot of work to do and if she's going to maintain her lead in a lot of these battleground states, the key swing states, she's going to have to come roaring back as of today and also do very well in that first debate. she can't wilt. jenna: one of the things that you talk about the hillary clinton campaign, she faces unprecedented jury charges despite what happened over the last week, she's not only the first candidate that's running for the third term -- the candidate of the president that's serving, but she's also in the way running for a third term of her husband's presidency as well. explain to us why you see this as a challenge. >> controversies build up over
8:05 am
the course of a two-term presidency. any two-term presidency makes enemieses, mistakes, people are angry about this and angry about that. yes, it's been a long time since the bill clinton presidency but we have certain fixed memories about the presidency and there were some controversies. jenna: vaguely all coming back. [laughter] >> exactly. you remember some of them. she was connected to all of them one way or another. what i'm saying here, she is the first person in american history to bare the weight of two, two term presidencies and, you know, there are advantages of having two presidents campaign for you but there are some clear disadvantages. jenna: now, trump also has his own challenges, set of challenges as well. one of the things you write about as you take a look at the polling, she's having trouble winning a group that's normally quite republican, that's how you describe. the college educated whites. what i'm curious, larry f that
8:06 am
group stays undecided over the next weeks but ultimately goes to their voting sides and votes according to how they voted in the past, so they feel undecided and they get there, i'm going to check the box of the party i usually vote for, who will win that vote? >> well, trump will obviously been because it's been republican in all modern elections. either we have exit poll that is show that or preexit polls. it's highly unusual not to have the white, college educated population for the republican. actually hillary clinton is leading substantially among college educated whites. now, where does trump make that up? he has an enormous margin on noncollege educated white workers, blue collar workers. you can't please everybody. you're not going to get every vote but we will see how that
8:07 am
changes after the first debate or the series of debates. jenna: one of the reason that is we are taking a look at the polls and battleground states and not only shift in numbers, hillary clinton lost ground, donald trump has gained some ground and his vice president, vice presidential candidate, governor pence was on with fox and friends this morning and they were asking him about what's working for the campaign. here is his response. >> i don't think really anything has changed. as donald said on your program this morning, the message has remained the same, make america great again. jenna: has nothing changed, larry? >> no, what has changed is hillary clinton has had problems. her problems have cut some of her support. she's been off the trail, i've already mention it had recent controversies and, you know, she had tremendous advantages starting out in solid leads in almost all of the swing states. jenna: you don't attribute some of the changing in poll numbers that we are see to go anything
8:08 am
that donald trump is doing, changing strategy and talking about policy and different appearance, do you really think it's all based on hillary clinton? >> i think a great deal of it is. some of what the team has had trump to do, to teleprompter, taking the iphone so he won't tweet in the middle of the night. obviously they have made good decisions. jenna: i wish my phone in the middle of the night because that's when i do the online shopping. [laughter] jenna: just a final thought, i thought it was sort of interesting, i thought it was interesting as we take a look at the polling in battleground states, one of the things you mention you do question the ability of public pollster to get accurate read on true voting intentions of state sizable hispanic population. i thought that was interesting, larry. why is that a challenge and how do you think that may impact the snapshot we are getting from
8:09 am
some states? >> excellent question, jenna, the reason is because northeast national polls do not have a large enough sample to break out the hispanic vote separately which is going to be about 10% of the national total and give you accurate numbers, they can give you ballpark numbers but not accurate numbers. if you want to know the latino vote, go to latinodecisionspolling, they have enormous samples. 3500 in their latest and they really are able to break down the hispanic vote in a way that you can see what the differences are from state to state. jenna: that's really interesting and something to keep in mind as we get closer and closer. larry, great to see you. >> thanks, jenna. enjoyed it as always. john: her doctor and her daughter both weighing in on her health and what chelsea says might surprise you this as
8:10 am
clinton rival donald trump also releases some new information about his health. how big a role will all of this play in the race for the white house? we will go in-depth. and deadly violence skyrocketing in chicago with alarming crime statistics there. what's mind the increase and what can be done to revarious it? also we want to hear from you, are you satisfied with the answers we've gotten from both presidential candidates regarding their health? our live chat is up and running go to foxnews.com/happening now to join the conversation. experience the thrill of the lexus is f sport. because the ultimate expression of power, is control. this is the pursuit of perfection.

(girls sing) safelite repair, safelite replace. john: america's election headquarters focusing on the health of presidential nominees as both release new details. the trump campaign making public a letter from his doctor after he revealed results from physical on the dr. oz program. he also talked about his age. >> if elected at age 70, you will be the oldest person to ever enter the ofl office, what do you think you have the stamma
8:14 am
for -- stamina? >> just about ronald reagan's age. i feel as good today as i did when i was 30. john: while hillary clinton's doctor discuss it had nominee with mild case of no, pneumonia, he didn't address where mrs. clinton was collapsing as she tried to get in the van there but her daughter still sea did seeing her mother that day, quote, i don't think i've ever seen her so tired and she was tired. she has pneumonia and that's miserable. joining us now aliana johnson, caitlin burns, national political reporter for real clear politics. all of a sudden we are talking a lot about the candidates'
8:15 am
health, both of them. it sounds like mrs. clinton suffered the most on that score over the last week. >> ting issue raised was the issue of transparency, of course, we know that clinton did not discloses that she had pneumonia and that in and of itself was the big issue. as you mentioned at the top, these are two candidates who could be -- donald trump would be the oldest candidate presidential nominee. hillary clinton is not too far behind. so questions about health are specially relevant this cycle and neither have been really as forthcoming as previous candidates on the issue of health. you can argue that clinton has released more information about her health than donald trump has but the larger issue is what's playing here. john: you know, there had always been whispers some of them of trump himself about clinton's medical situation and then all of a sudden, after the 9/11
8:16 am
ceremonies when she has to escape and disappears from the side of the press for a few hours, really, it fed into a sort of a narrative. >> i think that's exactly right, john. donald trump had been making suggestive comments about her lack of stamina and her health and it was like a stop clock. he was actually right about this and she really did have a serious medical condition and not only that, but she was not transparent about it and so it was something that really boosted donald trump and what we have seen in the fallout is trump rise in the polls, hillary clinton's fall, beyond that, the reason that we are talking about health is that these two candidates trump and clinton are not exactly the picture of, you know, vigorous fit candidates, you know, compare today barack obama and mitt romney in 2012.
8:17 am
they are both old and a little bit chubby and not what we are used to seeing in the campaign trail for president. john: yeah, the showmanship that has been brought, trump said that he wasn't going release medical records and then all of a sudden reaches into his pocket and shares this with dr. oz. is that all part of the theater? >> it's a completely trumpian way of doing things, right, the idea that he has not released information until this point and did it on the dr. oz show completely unconventional, donald trump, of course, is an unconventional candidate. clinton campaign, i think, is using that moment to -- to make some strides of their own, right, saying that he's not taking the health issue seriously. i think that they can use this week back on the trail to show signs, if they can, of her improvement getting over the
8:18 am
pneumonia and hitting the trail again. of course, we are two weeks out from the big debate which will be a pivot point. john: given the history, secret nature of what happened to her, voters are left wander to go some extent. >> they really are. you saw donald trump get up last night and had been extremely sensitive and polite and wished her the best and he got up last night, this is really hard to do, takes a lot of energy, do you think she can stand up for an hour in that debate stage, i don't know, i don't know. can hillary clinton hack it for 90 minutes on that debate stage and that's what people are wondering and what we are going to see. we won't know until a couple of weeks. john: image this they will have the room well air-conditioned that night. thank you both. jenna: crime rate soars in chicago and city officials grasp for solutions.
8:19 am

>> would donald trump consider and make a visit to the south side of chicago? >> you know what, mr. trump will be coming here in the next 24 hours and i will have a conversation with him about it. i think it's a great suggestion and i will certainly talk with mr. trump. he's willing to go anywhere so that he can improve the conditions of african americans. jenna: asking a trump adviser
8:23 am
about why no one is going to neighborhoods so desperately needing help and some example of questions asked about what actually solve it is crime problem in america's third largest city as we are getting disturbing news crime statistics from the chicago police department. as of the beginning of this month, chicago recorded 479 murderers this year. that's up 46% from the same period last year. but my next guest say it's not the murder numbers that we are looking at but the shootings. i know you've been at the chicago tribune since the early 1980's and you have seen a lot. why is it the shootings the most important number to look at? >> the murders now are over 500, the murders don't tell you the whole story because of advances in medicine, you know, the emergency medical technicians, paramedics and so forth, the
8:24 am
emergency rooms, the trauma centers, all of this -- all this keep people alive. we've had 3,000 shootings already. 3,000. jenna: i was keeping up andradeing a great com that you wrote about 9/11, you mentioned the nearly 3,000 american that is were killed that day but when i look at your com about chicago, nearly 3,000 people in chicago have been shot just since the beginning of this year. it's shocking statistic. >> it's terrible and the politics are all wrong, you know. president obama doesn't want to highlight this, hillary clinton doesn't want to highlight this. i heard through your piece that there are some buzz about donald trump coming in, but really there's a disconnect locally you the politics here.
8:25 am
you have a mayor who is wounded, politically, weakened by the mcdonald situation, remember that with the young man shot 16 times by the white cop, you have all sorts of things going on where the cops don't now -- they won't make street stops. street stops are down 80%. jenna: some are calling the ferguson effect. >> yes. jenna: are quite frankly nervous, anxious about making some of the stop that is they normally would have and second-guessing themselves because they're worried about winding on video and making an error and stops them from doing the most active police work. others saying that stopping cops from doing other things that they shouldn't, how do you see it, john? >> i think if you're in the communities, you want police officers protecting your life from thugs that are shooting. there's really about 1500 or so repeat offenders who were in the chicago in these five districts that do much of the shooting, at
8:26 am
least from the police algary, the we have people being shot down not only gang bangers as we call them, but also 9-year-old babies being brought into an alley assassinated. 9-year-olds. jenna: competing members of gangs. it gives me goosebumps thinking about it. >> he's not the only one. there's been other little children targeted. jenna: here is the frustration, john, the media, there's a big
8:27 am
story we all sort of hover around it and back off when the light goes out and gets dark in the neighborhood. so it makes me wonder what role the outside has for your city? is there a role of the outside world of chicago or is it really something a solution that has to happen internally? >> i think what has to happen is people have to call things what it is. it's not gun violence, we keep calling it gun violence, there are many guns in the suburbs, people aren't killing each other. what we are talking about is gang violence, gang violence, the large ones into smaller clicks that are murderers and that has to be dealt with. people have to talk of the root causes. from the left, jobs and from the right i could tell you family and the welfare state, but all these things combined and the fact is that the politics of this country don't want to look
8:28 am
at chicago in the light because, i think, president obama is from chicago, people don't want to put him on the spot and at the same time people are dying. jenna: just real quick before i let you go, i have to ask you this but also as a dad, you have some perspective on the city that a lot of us don't have, at this point, is it xarr -- comparable or is it a completely different moment? >> we have had times of more homicides, 940 homicides in a year, but what we have this time is a political weakening, a political weakening in which the mayor is trying to rehabilitate himself, rehabilitate his image with african-american voters, is trying as hard as he can but at the same time, you know, the politics are shaky. so that adds and the police are now afraid so i've never seen
8:29 am
that before in chicago. jenna: something we want to continue to watch, john, and we appreciate the point of your column and i appreciate you having on the program, we look forward having you back. >> thanks, so much, jenna. john john your tax dollars funded comprehensive study of how many illegal feds actually catch crossing the border but never saw the light of day. now charges the white house was the reason, fox news exclusive. a wild new atv with a new twist. i got behind the wheel. check it out. >> it takes incredible amount of work and patience, coming up, we will introduce you to one of the newest aircraft out there. this is the sky runner and, yes, it flies.

savings and this comes out after he laid out broad plan as well, rolling back regulations, renegotiating trade agreements, it's a long list. he's going to drill down on a couple of those in a little while in new york city, we will take you there. john: obviously this campaign season border security is an issue, patrolling of rugged land escape like our southern border is one of the potential uses for new aircraft hitting the market. it's not often the faa approves a new design specially one that doesn't look like it should get a few feet off the ground. when i saw it. i had to take a test flight. >> ramping audiotape loading docks out of building, ramping 4 feet in the air, heavy off roads, 70-mile an hour off roads. >> stuart wanted something that didn't exist, so he invented it.
8:35 am
what gave you the idea? >> to get around the property you get winded walking around. john: he wanted a vehicle with a twist. >> i wanted something fun but something i put my family in and fly around. john: he calls it an off-road aircraft, the sky runner. >> a toy for my family and myself. as people saw it, they said, i would like one of those. it was a toy that turned into a business. john: stuart, faced major obstacle. he had never before designed a vehicle, let alone an aircraft. >> it doesn't look like it should fly. it's one of the best aviation experiences that i have had. john: plus no experiencing in manufacturing.
8:36 am
>> it doesn't done by myself. john: he had to get the federal government to approve outside the box idea. >> the faa has been fantastic, probusiness and they were very diligent and made us a better company in their inspections. john: despite all of that, in just three years sky runner has taken off. one man's one-time dream, faa certifies as safe to fly. >> it took me 150 landing and assessments to feel comfortable. it can be piloted in 12-hour supply training. john: you can land this in 1250 feet. >> yeah, that's plenty. john: the stay turns out to be tool with practical application. >> we are $43 an hour operational cost and if you rent a helicopter, 16 or $1,800 an
8:37 am
hour. you don't need a special license, police officer, someone working in the field and turn them into a pilot in a week. sky runner caught the attention of the u.s. military. john: you talked to elite special forces? >> they have come to shreveport several times and helped us think through the design. we redesign with 80% of their feed back. john: a machine that can move rapidly over rough terrain. you can see why the military is interested. small teams into remote battlefields or quickly evacuate any wounded. >> whether we have the contracts or not, it's a very patriotic place for us to play. the military, if we can save american soldiers lives, they have all the resources behind it. john: stuart, offered to build
8:38 am
in louisiana with a handful each month but with the design faa certified, before long hundreds can fly off the factory floor each year. what does it cost? >> 139,000. john: and you're going to add nice toys? >> tracks, tires, customizing. yeah, there's a lot of cool technologies that we can hook up . john: for 139ki can walk out the door for one of these? >> pretty close to fully loaded. you want one? john: yeah. >> let's do that. [laughter] john: but maybe first a test flight. cruising speed is around 40 miles an hour so yes, there are faster aircraft out there but you can't drive them on a beach or a field.
8:39 am
really cool. [music] john: you have to admit, it doesn't look like it should fly, does it? jenna: how is it inside? john: it's really fun. you have head sets on and you can talk to one another it's kind of low and slow flight which a lot of pilots really liked. jenna: it look today me -- because you fly a plane. john: right. jenna: a driver get tong motorcycle for the first time because there's no doors. did you feel vulnerable at all that you could fall out? [laughter] john: i'm used to having wings when i flew and this thing obviously not. when you look up ahead there's the big canopy over you. bad weather and low clouds, obviously. anyone there's a clearing, you can take off in that thing.
8:40 am
it's pretty neat. [laughter] jenna: down broadway and manhattan. this would be a story we would have to cover. john: you might see one up here soon. jenna: very cool. john: lot of fun. jenna: congratulations to him, what a great inventor. john: it's getting a lot of attention. jenna: i'm sure even know now. we will be sure to post the story so you guys can watch it again. one of the things we are going to be looking at here is border security and a fox news exclusive with charges at the white house oh report paid for by you which contradicted obama's claims that it catches 80% of illegal immigrant crossing the border. it never saw the light of day. we are following the story live with more. william. >> jenna, eight analysts spent a
8:41 am
year on the report answering the biggest mystery of the border. not many illegal immigrant we catch, but how many we don't, who evade the border patrol and enter the u.s. each year, when you ask the administration, they will point to the dhs report and this number, 81%. that's the percent of known illegals apprehended and turned back to the border. sounds effective but the new report say it is probability of getting caught is actually 51%, not 81. meaning we catch just half of the immigrant trying to enter illegally, the other half 200,000 roughly get in. dhs is suppressing this report for, quote, political reasons because it would look bad and help elect donald trump. dhs tells us that is absolutely false, that the 51% number is preliminary and some in congress are skeptical. >> the administration is being honest with the american people
8:42 am
about what the threat is, how successful they are being, what the effectiveness rate really is and what we can do about it. >> now, when the report was done in may, the research team had to clear it with the white house domestic policy council. we were told it was an explosive meeting and the report died. dhs confirm it had meeting that say it is report will be released although they won't say when but encouraging since 2005, illegal entries are down 95% which means all the money in the border security and technology is actually working. >> the results is you have many fewer people trying and you have a higher percentage getting caught and enforcement has been a big part of the reason that we haven't seen another surge in illegal migration. >> it's good news. get this, 2005, the researcher estimate, 4 million illegal successfully enter the u.s. illegally.
8:43 am
now the good news again that's down to 200,000 but still 50% and that's a number that not everyone wants to advertise. back to you. jenna: very interesting, william. thank you. john: donald trump takes his minority outreach to flint, michigan and gets a lukewarm welcome. why the republican nominee was scolded by a local minister next. also the commissioner of the irs john koskinen make keep job after all. details ahead.

8:47 am
just like she's failed on foreign policy, everything she touched didn't would recollect out, nothing. now hillary clinton -- >> mr. trump, i invited here to thank -- >> oh, okay. >> not give a political speech. >> that's good. i'm going to go back. [applause] >> a lot of things happening but i think the president of the united states has to be a cheerleader for the country and you have to bring the black and the white and the everything. you have to bring everybody together, different income groups, this tremendous division right now. john: let's get reaction from political panel, david webb, host of the webb show, rick, a democratic strategist forbes.com senior political contributor and cohost on serious xm. gentlemen, it's been a while. >> here we go again. john: david, would you call, i
8:48 am
don't know, from a political standpoint, is that an epic fail when you get smacked down by the minister in. >> not really, i mean, who invites a presidential candidate to a position or to a church or to an event and doesn't expect some politics. he was there in flint to do outreach, he was going to make points. you flip it around hillary clinton in salma, she does the same thing. so no surprise, come on, folks. >> you have to look at it in terms of what was going on. they did not want him in flint, the major did not want him in i'm sure the pastor did not -- >> the major said she wasn't notified. >> they didn't want him. that's just the way it is. he's late to the party. i mean, he wasn't there when hillary was there months ago when the water crisis was at its peak, of course, they had an understanding, don't talk politics, come and thank us for the good work, he didn't keep the deal. the worst part is he backed down and then he comes back and slams her.
8:49 am
>> hillary went early and what did she do and what has been done? >> he's not in a position to do something, is she? she don't hold elected office. john: they don't want him at the new york economic council where he is speaking now. let's listen in. [laughter] >> but today i do want to outline a plan for american economic revival and it's a bold and ambitious and-forward looking plan to massive increase jobs, wages, income and opportunities for the people of our country. great people of our country. i will tell you. my plan will embrace the truth that people flourish under a minimum government burden and will tap into the incredible unrealized potential of our workers and their dreams. right now 92 million americans are on theside line outside of the workforce and they're not a
8:50 am
part of our economy. it's a silent nation of jobless americans and look no further and i mean no further, all you have to do is look at flint where i spent a lot of time, the city of flint and what a disaster has taken place. the jobs have been stripped from the community and its infrastructure has totally collapsed. in 1970 there were more than 80,000 people in flint working for general motors, today it's less than $8,000. we have 8,000 people. and that's going down and they're making very, very little and people are trying to go down to make that 8,000-dollar mark. what we are doing is ford, ford has announced just yesterday
8:51 am
that they are moving their small-car production facilities to méxico. and i have been talking to this a long while and that's maybe one of the reasons that we are doing so well in ohio and michigan and lots of other places where cars and parts are involved. but to think that ford is moving its small car division is a disgrace. disgraceful that our politicians allow them to get away with it. [applause] >> it used to be cars were made in flint and you couldn't drink the water in méxico. now cars are made in méxico and you can't drink the water in flint. [applause]
8:52 am
>> but we are going to turn this around. my economic plan rejects the cynicism that says our labor force will keep declining, that our jobs will keep leaving and that our economy can never grow as it did once before and boy, oh, boy, did it used to grow. we reject the pessimism that says our standard of live can go no longer rise and that all there is really left to divide because frankly we are looking at an economy now of no growth and redistribution of wealth and that's not going to work. everything that is broken today can be fixed and every failure can be turned into a truly great
8:53 am
success. just look at the way i just melded into the teleprompter that just went off. who else could have pulled that off? who else? [applause] >> jobs can stop leaving our country and they will absolutely start pouring in. failing schools can been flourishing schools. crumbling roads and bridges can become new infrastructure. inner cities can experience flood of new jobs and investment and rising crime can give way to safe and prosperous communities. all of these things and so much more are possible, but to accomplish them we must replace the present policy of globalism, which have taken so many jobs
8:54 am
out of our communities and so much wealth out of our country and we place it with a new policy of americanism. [applause] >> america first, remember that. [applause] >> under this american system, every policy decision we make must pass a simple test, does it create more jobs an better wages for americans, it's a test. if we lower our taxes, remove destructive regulations and we have to do that, unleash the vast treasure of american energy and negotiate trade deals that put america first, then there is no limit to the number of jobs we can create and the amount of prosperity we can unleash, america will truly be the greatest place in the world to invest, hire, grow and to create
8:55 am
new jobs, new technologies and entire new industries. instead -- thank you. [applause] >> instead of driving jobs that walked away, america will become the greatest magnet for innovation and job creation. my opponent's plan rejects this optimism. she offers only more taxing and her tax increases are unbelievable, more regulating, more spending and more wealth redistribution. a future of slow growth, declining incomes and dwindling prosperity. the only people who get rich under hillary clinton are the donors of the special interests, but bad for our country in
8:56 am
hillary clinton's america we have vunderred our status as the world's great economy and we have surrendered the middle class. not one single idea she's got will create one net american job or create one new dollar of american wealth for our workers. the only thing shea can offer is a welfare check. that's about it. our plan will create paychecks and millions of paychecks for people now unemployed or underemployed. in the course of this campaign i have traveled all across the country and i have met the most amazing people. every day i've seen the goodness and character of our country and brave citizens proudly fighting
8:57 am
through hard times and difficult circumstances. i have been all over this country, folks, and we have unbelievable people but they need leadership, a country needs leadership. in many parts of our country, the hard times never seem to end. i visited cities and towns in up state new york where half of the jobs have left and moved to méxico and other countries, the businesses are gone, they've been taken away like taking candy from a baby. politicians have abandoned these places all over the country and the people who live there are just there. no hope. my opponent described tens of
8:58 am
millions of american citizens as deplorable and irredeemable just last week. so how can hillary clinton seek to lead this country when she considers its citizens tremendous, tremendous numbers of them beyond redemption? the hard-working people she calls deplorable are the most admirable people i know. there are cops -- [applause] >> they are cops and soldiers, teachers and firefighters, young and old, moms and dads, blacks and whites, latinos, above all everything else, they're americans, some are rich americans, some are poor americans, they're americans. they love their families, they
8:59 am
love their country and they want a better future. these are the forgotten men and women of our country and they have been forgotten. people who work hard but don't have a voice. i'm running to be their voice. [applause] >> and to fight and bring prosperity to every part of this country. too many of our leaders have forgotten that it's their duty to protect the jobs, wages and well-being of american workers before any consideration, before anything, we have to do that. i'm not running to be the president of the world, i'm running to be the president of the united states of america. [applause] >> and as your president, i will
9:00 am
fight for every last american job and every american company which really allot of companies in this room, i can tell you, we are going to be fighting for you. [applause] >> you're bringing in the jobs, we are a nation that tame the west, dug out the panamá canal and won two world wars and put a man on the moon. it's time to start thinking big once again. that's why i believe it's time to establish a national goal of reaching 4% economic growth. [applause] >> and my great economist don't want me to say this but i think we can better than that. now they're upset. they'll be very upset but i think we can do and maybe substantially better than that. in working with my economic team we put together a plan that puts us on track to achieve that goal
