tv Americas Newsroom With Bill Hemmer and Martha Mac Callum FOX News September 30, 2016 6:00am-8:01am PDT
. daphne's new book is call the happy cook and you get it for free, right? >> sure. >> thank you very much for joining us. give our best to the doctor. >> thank you. >> find out how it comes out after the show show. >> guess what! it's friday! bill: donald trump slamming the children tons over bill clintons infidelities and taking a shot the beauty queen who has become an issue in the campaign. melissa: the republican nominee digging into hillary clinton's personal history while at the the same time calling her unfit for the white house. >> everything you need to know about hillary clinton sometimes referred to as crooked hillary can be understood with the
simple but very important phrase. foofollow the money. melissa: one trump supporters ye trump supporter has a message for trump. >> he has a fair -- she has a fair chance of winning if he keeps the campaign down in the gutter. she has zero chance of winning if trump can discipline himself and run this at a very high level. melissa: fox team coverage "digital politics" editor chris stirewalt and steve doocy in grand rapids, michigan where trump is campaigning. trump brought up the word impeachment last night. reporter: the clintons want to live at the white house and donald trump is trying to reminds vote erms about what
happened last time they lived at the white house by alluding toll bill clinton's relationship with an intern. >> the american people have had it with years of corruption and scandal and impeachment for lying. impeachment for lying. remember that, impeach. reporter: thursday night talk of impeachment is a complete 180 to trump's monday night pledge not to go there. really rough. to hillary and her family, and i said to myself, i can't do it. i just can't do it. it's inappropriate. it's not nice. reporter reporter: donald trump is asking
voters to ask themselves how the children tons got so rich so quickly. he says there is corruption involved. he's repeating his line now, "follow the money." melissa: no one has made millions that quickly before. but at the same time he's attacking the former miss universe. >> he's trying to raise doubts about her credibility after she has done her best to label her as a sexist. early morning before the sun came up on the east coast, he asked his 11.9 million twitter followers. did hillary clinton help disgusting alicia m become a u.s. citizen so she could use her in the debate? he's heading to grand rapids, michigan. the real clear politics average
shows him trailing in michigan by 5 points. melissa: it's been quite a week. bill: chris stirewalt, how you doing, sir? you woke up and thought what about this? >> i thought, daggone, if we are 46 days away and one of the major party nominees is instructing his followers to check out a sex tape, i know it must be 2016. bill: they are using alicia m in a debate as a pair began of virtue shows she suffers from bad judgment. hillary was set up by a con. trump says he's going to respond. any time you see a story about
me or my campaign say sources said. do not believe it. there are no sources, it's just lies. trump when he's attacked he says he will respond. and this is what he has done. and can you get a good measure about what his supporters feel when they hear this? up to now, they are behind him, chris. >> he has a floor here of 40%. he's not going below that 40%. what matters is not whether his supporters like it when he attacked hillary clinton. what matters now is the next 5% that he needs. he needs these voters. he's off message. whether he's right or whether he's wrong, you can be happy or right but not usually both. in politics being right is of less value.
whether he's right about the character of his accuser doesn't matter as much as the fact that it's five days after the debate and we are still talking about what hillary clinton wants to talk about which is whether donald trump has an appropriate track record when it comes to women. bill: what about the clinton pass, is that not fair game? >> it's fair game. he's a major party nominee. if he wants to talk about the price of tea in china or cooked bacon, he can say anything he wants. the question is how dose win? the way you win in politics is by controlling the message. hillary clinton demonstrated in the debate and he has proven the last five days. his need to respond to attack puts him underneath because he's responding instead of driving the message. bill: did you hear the speech in
new hampshire? he was making what i heard to be a lot of points that a lot of republicans have been talking about since monday night that they wanted to hear in the debate at hofstra monday night. >> he's got a pollster who is his campaign manager, he has smart people around him telling him these are the messages when you talk about the economy and hillary clinton as an agent of the status quo. those can be effective messages that can text with persuadable voters. but when he tells people to go watch a sex tape is not something that's going to help you win over persuadable voters. bag on. bag on. melissa: there you go. still to come on america's newsroom. rnc communications director sean
spicer joins us live with his reaction to trump's strategy. bill: our polling comes out at* eastern time. you have got four days when this debate is baked into the numbers. melissa: 6:00 p.m. that's the thing to watch. rescuers have recovered the event recorder from the commuter train that crashed yesterday morning, killing one person and injuring more than 100 others. the news comes as we learn more about the come and who died. investigators say 34-year-old fabiola declone was killed by crash debris. investigators are trying to figure out what caused the crash. the train's engineer, thomas gallagher, is cooperating with authorities after being released
from the hospital. witnesses are describing what they saw. >> when officers said did anyone see the engineer? somebody said no. one of the jersey transit employees walked over and looked up in the cab and i walked over with him but i was farther away. you could see his shirt. he was slouched over with injuries. melissa: david lee miller is live in hoboken. how fast was the train going in the end? we heard different reports? >> i talked to the vice chair woman for the ntsb. the bottom line is they do not know at this hour how fast this train was going. anecdotal evidence suggests it was going faster than the speed limit which was 10 miles an hour. the train going so fast that after it hit one of the concrete and steel beams, it literally became airborne. much of this info will be on the
data recorders. one of the recorders has been obtained by vest gators. in this case that was the last car. this is the locomotive was pushing the train. there is still a second recorder in the control part, this is the first car yet to be obtained. the investigators say there has been a partial ceiling collapse at the terminal make it extremely difficult to get physical evidence. >> the destruction if you can imagine was just terrible. i came up as close as i could to the train within safe measures. i was very close. we could see all the destruction. their wires. it's devastation. that's why we are concerned about the safety our investigators. reporter: in addition to the data recorder they still want to get their hands on inside the
terminal behind me in were also cameras on board the train and there are also surveillance cameras inside the terminal and this is information and data authorities still like to obtain and they helped them understanding exactly what happened a little more than 24 hours ago. melissa: what more do we know about the train's engineers? >> we know thomas gallagher was treated and released at a local hospital. they say he worked for new jersey transit for 29 years. the ntsb said they have not yet talked with him. they soon expect to. in addition they expect to get blood and urine samples. the same procedure will be followed for three other staff members who were on board this train. the bottom line, no quick answers. the ntsb says the investigation could take about anne a year.
>> we now know the name of the engineer and a few more facts we did not have yesterday. a lot of concern over there. we are trying to get back to normal. 12 minutes past. new information. that is a bit stunning about the release of four americans released in iran. reports of a secret deal that involved lifting sanctions on tehran. melissa: "usa today" doing something it says it has never done in the presidential race. the paper says it's a clear choice to make this election but it's not an endorsement. bill: based on the polling after debate number one, does either candidate have a clear path to victory? >> let's decide in pennsylvania here and now that hillary
clinton will never be elected president of the united states of mirstates -- of america. you do all this research on a perfect car, then smash it into a tree. your insurance company raises your rates... maybe you should've done more research on them. for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise your rates due to your first accident. liberty mutual insurance.
if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, isn't it time to let the real you shine through? introducing otezla (apremilast). otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable after just 4 months, with reduced redness, thickness, and scaliness of plaques. and the otezla prescribing information
has no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't take otezla if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. otezla may increase the risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts, or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment. side effects may include diarrhea, nausea, upper respiratory tract infection, and headache. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, and if you're pregnant or planning to be. ask your dermatologist about otezla today. otezla. show more of you. bill: if you read "usa today," they had strong words against donald trump. they write, from the day he declared his candidacy to this week's first presidential debate
he demonstrated he lacks the temperament, steadiness and shownesty america needs in a president. >> i think in this day and age people aren't look toagd torials the way necessity were in the 1800s. with all due respect to "u.s.a. today"'s opinion. i don't think many conservatives and independents are looking to the liberal media to make their decisions. bill: they did not endorse hillary clinton. you woke up to this twitter storm. >> donald trump is a guy who fights back. that's why -- when he takes a punch, he punches back. that's the kind of leader he wants to talk about being. he says we are not going to sit back and take other countries
coming in and take our jobs. we'll stand up for our people and for our workers. donald trump is the guy who shows you it's not going to be business as usual, he's not going to be politically correct, he's going to fight for american workers fan american families. he has to present himself until a contrast with hillary clinton. he's not the same sphoamed washington candidate that we have. that's what people finds appealing about him. at the ends of the day they know he will wage, he's not going to fight web's going to call balls and strikes as he sees them. quote * apparently is no longer a bellwether. >> two things go on in ohio. candidates one look at rob portman, he did an amazing job as united states senator. formerly a congressman.
he worked to get accomplishments for the state of ohio. you look at what donald trump has done there as well. resonating with a message of jobs and the economy first. second we have the infrastructure and ground game. last cycle we had 79 staff in ohio. we have been there for four years. go into community we have in the past and that work is paying off. >> the point this article makes is she can win without ohio. do you believe that? and if so, that would be the first time since 1960 that's ever been done. republican or democrat. >> if you start off as a democrat, if you look at where we are versus last year. we are putting states like nevada, pennsylvania, almost *, iowa, states obamacareyed twice into play.
that's important. and we are doing things like registering new voters. bill: hillary clinton apparently got a bump in florida. it would be a 2-point gain for her since debate night number one. you are in the middle of this sign-up campaign. how would you characterize how bad it's going? >> we launched something called vote do the gop. you can register to vote. you go to sign up, you tell them your address it tells you whether you are region stored vote. if you aren't, it scts if you want an absentee ballot. do you want to help tell friends about it. but so far we have done successfully, very successfully, we have gotten 300,000 donors that have contribute and put
their money where their mouth is. we have gone out since the debate and found 300,000 people who have requested an absentee ballot and registered to vote. that's how we can expand that map, if they are registered to vote, do they want an absentee ballot. >> democrats doing that? it's doing phenomenal. bill: melissa, what's next? melissa: an incredible rescue caught on camera in syria. this documentary shows life on this group's heroic effort.
narrator: it wasn't that long ago. years of devastating cutbacks to our schools. 30,000 teachers laid off. class sizes increased. art and music programs cut. we can't ever go back. ryan ruelas: so vote yes on proposition 55. reagan duncan: prop 55 prevents 4 billion in new cuts to our schools. letty muñoz-gonzalez: simply by maintaining the current tax rate on the wealthiest californians. ryan ruelas: no new education cuts, and no new taxes. reagan duncan: vote yes on 55. sarah morgan: to help our children thrive.
bill: dramatic video out of syria showing a little girl being pulled out of the rubble in aleppo. this video showing the toll the war is taking syria five years on. so-called white helmets witnessed the destruction. they shared the stories on america's newsroom, now they are the focus of a new documentary you can see on netflix such as
this. [♪] meanwhile, as the war goes on, new concerns the u.s.-russia talks on peace are breaking down. next hour we'll talk to kt mcfarland and get her take on this. >> it's so hardtop watch that video and know those civilians running in to try and save people. 144 of them have died trying to save other people. it's hard to watch that video. the federal government making plans to pay health insurance companies the billions of
dollars it owes them under the affordable care act. it comes as health plans are leaving the state exchanges because they are losing money under the exchanges. tell us how the administration is working this out. >> this money is part of what the administration used to incentivize insurers. the risk pay would reimburse them for losses for taking on patients who were previously uninsured. after the first two years alone the federal government owes insurance companies more than $5 billion. the insurers have launched a string of lawsuits to make sure they get paid. sylvia berwell told fox news
lawsuits are nothing new for obamacare. >> there are a lot of court challenges. but as they go through, you have seen those are cases we win. we believe we have the authority. reporter: the $5 billion is taxpayer money that won't be going from anywhere else. melissa: it's a wealth transfer of taxpayer money to insurance companies. how are they going to pay for this? reporter: congress said they can't use their taxpayer dollars to pay those bills. the administration is trying too go around congress to use an object secure treasury fund to pay insurers. they said washington has been
running a textbook crony scheme. the administration says it still plans to move ahead with these payments. bill: hillary clinton, donald trump hitting key battle ground states. did either get an edge out of debate number one? then how could that change the map. melissa: thousands of people paying tribute. how world leaders remember a man who made peace the center of his life. >> the people of israel deeply appreciate the honor you have shown shimon and the stakes to which he dedicated his life. guess what guys, i switched to sprint.

pay tribute to a world leader. shimon peres. he's remembered as a visionary who spent 7 decades in politics, won a nobel prize for peace. president obama and president clinton and benjamin netanyahu among those who honored him. he's remembered as a visionary who never stopped striving for peace. >> he was a great man of israel, he was a great man of the world. israel grieves for him. the world grieves for him. but we find hope in his legacy as does the world. bill: conner powell picks up our coverage live in israel.
reporter: the word that embodies his entire personality they say in israel and according to foreign leaders, he was always optimistically looking toward the future. he was buried in israel. representatives from 70 different countries including former president bill clinton and current president barack obama were here, john kerry, prince charles, germany, france, turkey and jordan and egypt as well were all on hand. the one thing that defines simone per rest is his persistence in doting on israel. he was the father of the early military. he was champion of settlement in the west bank. at a time of warfare and conflict, he came to the decision pursuing peace was at the heart of what israel must do
going forward. here's president obama on that. >> he learned from hard-earned security, through security comes making peace with your neighbors. we won them all, he said of israel's wars. but we did not win the greatest victory we aspired to. relief from the need to win victories. reporter: in death simone per rest was able to accomplish something the international community was not able to do, which is get mahmoud abbas and netanyahu to get in the same spot to speak. abbas was on hand and briefly spoke with benjamin netanyahu, the first time in about 7 years have spoke face to face it's a legacy shimon peres would be very proud to see these two men
meet, even if very briefly, bill. melissa: we are waiting for new polling from fox news as the nominees campaign in key battleground states. a new mason-dixon poll shows clinton with a 4-point lead over trump among likely voters in florida. johnson and stein are far behind. what do you expect this big poll coming out today. we have seen a lot of online stuff, but we don't put a lot of weight in that because it's not scientific. this is our first look at the true polling. post debate. what do you expect? >> it also shows solid clinton
leads in new hampshire. my sense of it is clinton did very well in the debate. and every random sample poll showed clinton won by a mile over trump in the first debate. and as a result, she is going to get a little boost. because it's not that kind of election where you get a big boost. we have a very polarized electorate. this is a stark choice. when you get good news like clinton got at the first debate, you will add a point or two or three. can it fade? sure it can fade. we have seen the ebb and flow throughout this campaign. melissa: larry, we have seen very big swings in this election. double-digit swings. remember donald trump after the
dnc was way down and came way back. it feels like it's been more rubberband movements than small movements. have we reached a point in the campaign where we'll only see small movements like this? >> i would have to disagree with you because you are talking about the convention bounce and convention bounces can be quite large and they fade over time. that's what happened to clinton's convention bounce. if you look at the polling averages you will see except for that post con strngs period, the changes have been relatively small. if you had to smooth out the line of all the hundreds of polls that have been taken, you see hillary clinton with the 2 or 3 or 4-point lead pretty consistently even going back to late spring. melissa: when you talk to the experts, it seems what really matters is not the state by state polling.
if you look at the real clear politics average you are seeing a allege in colorado trb ohio, north carolina, these are places that are important. what are you looking at on a state by state basis? >> remember those polling averages reflect what's already happened. almost predebate. what i expect to happen is what we have just seen. i expect clinton to move up a point or two or three or waste is in those swing states. it's not going to be enough to get her iowa. it may not get they are ohio. but it probably will restore some of her lead in colorado. it may restore a small lead in north carolina. we are waiting to see what the newest round of state by state polls will show. >> what state are you most focused on. >> what is making you scratch your head with surprise or
anticipation? >> if i had to pick one it would be florida because of the 29 electoral votes that have key swing votes. if hillary clinton wins until it's over. we'll know early on election night if she's carrying florida. though i suspect florida will be close. if trump wins florida he has a path with florida, ohio and pennsylvania. but you don't want to focus on just one to the collusion of 7, 8ing with or 9 swing states. melissa: larry sabato, always so smart. thank you for coming on. bill: donald trump going on offense, taking on the clintons last night and this morning. in fact both of them. >> the clintons have a distorted past.
we'll be the bright and clean future. this will be the year the american people say finally enough is enough. >> a new line of attack. will that work? we'll debate it in a moment. >> good news for lady gaga fans. the huge show almost everyone in america will be tuning into. (climbing sounds) when kevin jorgeson needs light, he trusts duracell quantum because it lasts longer. ♪ (duracell slamtones) with another new flavor you never saw coming... grilled, glazed korean bbq shrimp. and try as much as you want of flavors like new parmesan peppercorn shrimp. just come in before it ends.
game. she put out "perfect illusion." bill: i think it's her turn. i'm a big fan of ac/dc. melissa: she is a performer. it could be fantastic. bill: she can be katy perry, she is big in arizona. >> people have had it with years and decades of clinton corruption and scandal. corruption and scandal. and impeachment for lying. impeachment for lying. remember that? impeach. the clinton are the sordid past, we'll be the bright and clean future. >> here we go from new hampshire. donald trump take on both clintons. mercedes peninsula shah lamb,
ladies -- mercedes schlapp. is the clinton past fair game or off limits? is it smart or is it not? start. >> i think that the clinton past is fair game. clearly you have got to look at the history of the clintons from the moment that they stepped into the white house where there was scandal after scandal. then you have got to move into what we have seen after we left the white house where there have been questions raised about millions of dollars she made with groups that lobbied the government, the pay-for-play, the scheme they set up between the state department and the clinton foundation. it just raises all these questions. then you have the f.b.i. investigation with the immunity they gave to several of hoing *'s staffers. i think these are all legitimate questions to continue to raise.
i think for donald trump it does help talk about this narrative about the fact that hillary clinton, the corruption that keeps following her throughout these past couple years. that is why you have seen the fact that so many americans still don't trust her. bill: mary anne, she says it's fair game. are you concerned about this, reaching back into the past and rattling off the list? >> when you run for president you can't hide who you really are. and this is the real donald trump who realized at the ends of the debate he performed poorly. launched the allegation anyways. now he continued it and he wakes up this morning. he's in michigan because he's losing michigan, a state he has to win. he was in new hampshire yesterday, another state he has to win, and he's losing. he was in florida earlier, another state he's losing. now he has big problems in
florida with the revelations he did business with the castros. bill: they denied that and kicked it to the side. >> there are documents that prove that he did. bill: are you concerned about sympathy for her because in the past we have seen that on behalf of. americans. >> i think there is a fine line. it was hoing * who brought up this whole scandalous story of the alicia ma chad oh who has -o who has her own past. i think that when donald trump gets stuck on these stories of having to talk about this former miss university does keep him away from having to address the very critical issues.
i think when we are talking issues, it worked for donald trump. for hillary clinton the only thing she is holding on to is attacking donald trump. bill: maryanne, moments ago on another network howard dean apologized for suggesting donald trump was using cocaine during the debate monday night. it took him five days. >> he should, he should have done it sooner, period. bill: thank you, mary anne. thank you, ladies, have a good week. melissa: a day after overriding the president's veto on a bill, allowing 9/11 families to sue saudi arabia. what do the families think?
melissa: some lawmakers look to change a bill that allows families of 9/11 victims to sue saudi arabia. joining us is the mother of a victim on flight 11. what was -- what does suing saudi arabia achieve for you? >> we haven't really brought the perpetrators to justice. and we are very grateful to the legislators who helped us to do that. specifically robert graham who chaired the forerun i are of the 9/11 commission which was the joint inquiry it was his last
chapter of the joint inquiry report that became the much touted 28 pages that had lots of information and damning evidence against the kingdom of saudi arabia. we believe there was quite a bit of necessity fairous actions committed by saudi arabia in the runup to 9/11, that mal malefacs were allowed to come in. they sustained them and fed them and they lived among us and plotted against us and killed almost 3,000 of us on our own soil. we think saudi arabia should come to justice for that reason. and we are so grateful to senators john cornyn and charles schumer for seeing the justice against sponsors of terrorism act through the senate and we are especially grateful to peter
king of new york to made it his pet in the house of representatives. melissa: i know he's been a huge advocate. you look at those 2 fate pages and you see a lot of evidence. why is a lawsuit better than putting those pages forward and showing the american public? i hear what you are saying, that you are about letting everyone in the world know that you believe the saudi government was behind this. but it's not about money, it's about letting people know who was behind this. why is a lawsuit then so important when critics say the lawsuit opens the u.s. up to lawsuits to people in other countries. >> i understand that, and i'm glad to their senator feinstein and others say they will continue in the senate to focus
on the bill. it poses know threat or nou usual onerous terms. it's narrowly focused and wants to bring justice against those foreign influences that would kill americans on our own soil. that seems to me that that narrow focus is what makes it so good and so effective in this situation. and in the future. we are very happy that future terrorist victims. and i'm sorry to say i think there will be a lot of future victims. we are happy they will have it working for them. melissa: we are sure you miss rain showerr your son have much. thank you for coming on. bill: donald trump cranking up his response to hillary clinton. trump bringing up the past and
her husband's infidelities. we'll tell you what he's saying about the email server controversy. freedom. one nation in all of human history was built on that bedrock, ours. freedom has made america exceptional, but it can only last if you and i choose to act as people of character. forging character has been the pursuit of hillsdale college since 1844.

being talked down to. the clintons have a sordid past. he read it off of teleprompter i believe and seemed to capture a lot of points many republicans wanted him to make monday night. >> absolutely. it echoes the first 25 minutes of the monday debate, like he was reading from a teleprompter, the talking points he prepared.
the most effective message is you want to change for the last 35 years you have to go with me because hillary clinton has been around, the problem is, he doesn't have the same large audience the first debate did, that was the time donald trump sent the message home and instead after a strong opening, by hillary clinton, talking about tax returns and never got back on message, really hurts him in front of the large audience. bill: howard dean made news, notice trump sniffing all the time, coke user with a question mark, ask to back away from it, he did not -- >> i apologize for the innuendo.
this entire campaign is debased by innuendo. and 15 months ago when donald trump started that. >> 39 days away you got drugs. >> it might be entertaining. and the coarseness of the debate, very unprecedented, and to apologize, but he is the statement about the nature of the debate. bill: thank you, we will talk
again. neil: 7 hillary clinton trying to shore up support in florida. a new paul showing a four point lead in a four point race. the new report that donald trump broke the trade embargo on cuba. >> we know about a tax return, but today we learned about the effort to do business in cuba which appeared to violate us law. >> in fort pierce, florida, hillary clinton is set to speak later. >> reporter: a modest bump in the polls for hillary clinton, gives hillary clinton a lead over donald trump. and 29 electoral votes, really a
2 percentage point increase for hillary clinton over the last time in august, clinton has two event in florida, she will be focusing on millennial voters. she will call for a day of national service asking young people to be part of something bigger than themselves, and going after millennial voters in part in florida today, having trouble with millennial voters, and has a four percentage point lead younger than 35 years of age in that category. it was lifted to help bernie sanders perform better with millennial voters in their primary, sanders campaigns with her wednesday and in new hampshire, the campaign is continuing to figure out a day sanders will join her later on. president obama will also campaign in florida for hillary
clinton next week. >> is there another key demographic she is focusing on? >> reporter: absolutely, cuban-americans, that report that came out from newsweek, said that clinton is bringing up the story that donald trump, one of the businesses he controlled, spend money for business opportunities in cuba and violated the us embargo. >> put his personal and business interests ahead of the laws and values and policies of the united states of america. >> the trump campaign denies that broke any laws, three quarters of cuban-americans in the united states reside in florida. back to you. >> great reporting, thank you.
>> we are learning startling new revelations about us concessions to tehran after the release of hostages held by iran. the wall street journal reporting the obama administration site secret documents to lift un sanctions against iranian banks on the same day the hostages were let go. in washington, how significant is this revelation, a story that is a moving target and is not going away. >> the obama administration has drawn fire for this talk about the ransom they were paying when they shelled out $1.7 billion to iran to secure the release of american hostages. we learn from the wall street journal these documents were signed by the stop state department official, one of the documents spelled-out two uranian banks have sanctions lifted, originally these sanctions were not going to be
released until 2023. this speeds up the timetable big time and will fuel more critics saying wait a second, iran got a pretty sweetheart deal. >> what about these uranian banks that were involved? bill: sanctions were lifted in 2015 as the initial stages of the iran nuclear deal came to fruition but were so close to united nations sanctions for another eight years, tehran has been saying these banks are getting their economy going again, critics say that is why we should not have let the boot off of iran, those sanctions choke off their economic power. will they be free to pursue their nuclear ambitions? bill: good to see you. >> donald trump goes all in on
bill clinton's marital infidelity. >> when you run for president everything is fair game, the question is whether it is the right thing to be doing to elect donald trump. >> a winning strategy could backfire? we are going to ask the trump camp. bill: john kerry threatening to come out of cease-fire talks. a close examination of that. in a moment. >> heavy rains cause massive floods. >> it is over, everything is gone.
bill: heavy rain overnight in north carolina, 2 dozen water rescues carried out, this is fayetteville not far from ford bragg, southeastern part of the state. and nearby dam could give way, we will keep an eye on it. >> the american people have had it with years and decades of clinton corruption and saddle. we will be the very bright and clean future.
>> donald trump going after the infidelity of bill clinton making the former president's extramarital affairs a new line of attack, not everyone is convinced it is a winning strategy. former house speaker newt gingrich saying trump shouldn't go there. >> when you run for president everything is fair game. the question is whether it is the right thing to be doing to elect donald trump. what i was struck by this afternoon, what i described as clinton's gutter campaign, she has a fair chance of winning, keeping the campaign down in the gutter, he said she said, it is a personality saying she has a fair chance of winning, she has 0 chance of winning if trump can discipline himself and runs this
at a high level. >> congresswoman marsha blackburn is a donald trump supporter. what do you think of what newt gingrich said? if it stays in the gutter she wins? >> newt gingrich is exactly right. everyone knows bill clinton has his share of problems with personal relationships so let's not make hillary the victim here and let's move on and talk about what has happened with the clinton foundation. what happened with 33,000 emails, they are dead broke and there were several hundred million dollars, that is what people want to know. >> the same point you are making, scandal after scandal after scandal, is saying do you remember all of this, do you want to go back to that? that is an effective point. >> a very effective point. they have such a history and
legacy, changing the rules, bending walls, working to suit themselves living by different standard, they don't want the scrutiny other people have. transferring control of the internet to the multi-stakeholder process that will eventually end up with the international telecommunications workers weighing in, we are not doing that today, we are talking other things, these are important issues, national security, economic security, strong suits for donald trump. the clintons are the status quo in their version of the status quo. >> you are donald trump supporter and you feel the frustration donald trump supporters are -- he felt the need to get up at 3:00 in the morning, an issue that should
have been dead between monday and now tweeting about this universe. does that frustrate you as a supporter of this? >> this woman should have revealed to mister trump indiscretions years ago, but should also disclose this to hillary clinton and we should be a way from this. let's talk national security, economic security and get to the issues women are talking about, concerned about economic stability. and very few job offerings out there and that is what people want to talk about. >> the message he seems to win, whatever you are looking at is where it begins, continuation of this corrupt system and fire everyone in his way. why do you think he gets off
track and starts talking about that >> i don't know. there are so many examples, we have been ghazi, libya, trying to look at why things happen the way they happened in iran and every day we find out more. what was hillary clinton's participation in the iran deal? why do we have a president who will not name our enemies? what was she trying to hide in 33,000 emails, the relationship between bill clinton, the clinton foundation, the nigerian land deal, the haiti relief corporation, and the other drug companies with the hiv-aids, those are the things that are great lines of attack because
they can't answer those questions, trying to deflect these other issues, don't even go there. >> you are giving some advice on doing that. in the end, when you talk to your colleague in washington what are they saying about this election and what do they think about what donald trump is doing or saying they are so excited the message of change, fighting the status quo is resonating with the american people. the la times poll, trump is up 5 points, they want us to stay on message, they want mike pence to stay on that message. >> thank you for coming on today. bill: usa today doing something it never done before, do
endorsements even matter this cycle? did they choose trump or clinton? stay tuned, what we are learning after the deadly train crash in jersey, what a brake system have prevented this? safety regulators have been asking about it for 20 years. >> every train, the brakes have to be tested. it didn't stop this time. >> what do you think it was >> the engineer had a heart attack or something? i don't know.
new jersey, 100 injured, a 34-year-old mother standing on a platform in hoboken station was killed when that commuter train barreled through at speeds possibly as high as 30 miles an hour. now debate is turning to the automated navigation, whether the system could have prevented all of this. that story live in dc. ntsb calling for something known as ppc, positive train control, automatic breaking system. what is the status of the system? >> a lot of people ask, it is everywhere since the technology has been there so long but it is easy for the ntsb to make the call because they don't have to pay for it. it is expensive, the business of safety, not the business of cost-benefit analysis. this investigation is just beginning, no cause has been given. >> in support of positive train
control. whether it had to do with his accident remains to be seen. >> the clamor on capitol hill for positive train control rose after 2008's commuter train crash, and still after the 2015 philadelphia amtrak crash that killed eight, that train was going 100 miles per hour around the 50 mile-per-hour track, it would automatically limit the speed of the train in that circumstance which congress directed the national railroad administration to impose ppc on all amtrak, freight rail and commuter lines by 2015 but real companies protested saying that deadline was unrealistic and would impose huge costs. congress extended the deadline in the end of 2015. >> i don't think we should have extended the deadline, trains were still running. the risk is there. that would go a long way to
saving lives. >> congress impose competing pressures, it wants more safety but less cost, republicans have hammered amtrak what it believes are the inefficiencies. bill: new jersey transit threatened to shut down its rail lines rather than putting the system in place. bill: >> a spokesman said without an extension it is unclear whether new jersey transit can operate past january 1, 2016. at that time new jersey transit said ppc implementation by 2018 and that is true with most freight rail systems in the us and almost all amtrak's northeast quarter is equipped with positive train control. bill: more on that as we search for answers. >> a war of words between the us
and russia. does washington have any leverage against moscow. >> don't vote for donald trump. and do not endorse hillary clinton either or anyone else for that matter. does it even matter? in this election cycle, fair and balanced debate coming up. >> the choice could not be more clear, change versus the status quo. i don't use super poligrip for hold, because my dentures fit well. before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. even well fitting dentures let in food particles. just a few dabs of super poligrip free is clinically proven to seal out more food particles so you're more comfortable and confident while you eat. so it's not about keeping my dentures in, it's about keeping the food particles out. try super poligrip free.
bill: one year ago today russia launched at their campaign in syria. you threatening to suspend cease-fire talks with moscow is fighting in aleppo goes on. john kerry, secretary of state demanding us diplomatic efforts now. >> i make no apologies, nor does president obama, none whatsoever, for trying to reach
out and find out if there is a way to achieve the political settlement everybody says is the only way to solve the problem of syria. bill: deputy assistant secretary of defense of the reagan administration. the headlines, close to suspending with moscow over syria, shocker. who thought this was going work. >> washington could care less. iran is determining events in the region, we are just there is a photo op, it was a courtesy, anybody who thought we were right at the big boy table was making a mistake, we walked away from that, that is what leading from behind means, you walk away from the ability to shape events.
bill: i don't know if president obama will do anything. what you will likely have with president clinton the president trump dealing with this, take her first, different or not? the chain she is campaigning to be barack obama's third term. relations with russia or globalism versus nationalism or the iran nuclear deal, i don't you will see a big change. she might be a little more hawkish but it is a tiny measure of the degree. bill: what about trump? what is your thinking on that? >> look at what he said. very specific about a strategy for defeating isis not only military but economic, cyber elements to our national security strategy, a lot bigger than hillary clinton felt about,
and negotiate it, they are not abiding by it, not only a tougher american foreign-policy but a negotiator. i am from new york, one tough mean negotiator, that is a national security issue. >> moscow, baghdad, tehran, with regard to iran we learned from the wall street journal that uranian banks lines of communication, access were opened up the day four americans were set free. this story continues to unravel time after time. what does it indicate to you what was happening behind the scenes in order to assure the release of these people? >> president obama said we want to deal with iran, they would get the deal no matter what they had to pay for it even if it
included ransom for hostages. now that they not only lifted the american sanctions, and the leverage we have, we are giving it up and the next one doesn't have as much leverage. particularly economic and financial. we are not using it and president obama is giving up. bill: we will see where else the story goes. it is like an onion. >> america opened her arms to 12,000 syrians this year. a great many lived in california, what can we do to help them? the first 90 days, he is live in los angeles bureau.
>> what is it like to be dropped into a country broke? a lot of people don't want you there but a lot better than what you left behind. >> the situation is very bad. >> they arrived in the us after the war in syria forced them to leave. >> maybe 10 million in syria. >> like others the journey wasn't easy including three years in jordan for a background check. thanks to the state department us taxpayers and their caseworkers, life in california is looking up. his job is to make sure immigrants and refugees do not fall through the cracks financially or culturally. going to the bank, the school, to make sure these people get off on the right foot. >> when they come here, there is
so much, they want to help themselves and help their children. >> it is good. >> to serve their new lives each refugee receives $1200 from washington and qualify for food stamps, medicaid, and some 40% of refugees receive benefits, for 5 years or more, they won't need it. >> training. >> so polls show half of america doesn't want more syrian refugees. they understand the fear over preventing terrorism. they want to be judged on their own and are grateful. bill: thank you for bringing that story was the golf tournament underway, a heckler from yesterday's ryder cup lived the dream poking fun at the
european team, this happens a lot they were having trouble with a pet on the sixth during a practice run so the european cooled him out of the audience, out of the crowd and challenged him to do better in this is what happened next. >> one of the great ryder cup in all history. >> he goes for a while lining that part up. david johnson is his name, and our 12 for, justin rose with a $100 bill on the green before that. >> unbelievable, unbelievable. >> how many beers did he have the that about to take off down the hill. it wasn't easy but a great story for his buddies for a long time.
>> all those people, and professionals, unbelievable. bill: friday, rolling on. >> i have faith in you, you could have done it. one major newspaper issuing what you might call in anti-endorsement urging voters to reject one candidate but withholding support from the other, detailed in a fair and balanced debate. here is mike pence. >> go tell somebody, take ownership of this thing, tell people what the stakes are. ♪

magma. that is what i feel like today. that lava flowing down in the sea with no threat to the community. it looks like fireworks, doesn't it. here we go. >> one of the country's biggest newspapers going to unusual lengths in opposition to donald trump. in an editorial saying, quote, this year the choices and between two capable nominees with significant ideological differences. this year one of the candidates, republican nominee donald trump, is by unanimous consensus, of the editorial board, unfit for the presidency. and activist and senior fellow with the new leaders council in a fox news contributor, tony, i
picture the intellectual elite editorial board sitting around with smug looks on their face taking a vote and raising their hands and saying unfit to be president. don't know how many people that inspires to vote one way or the other or cancel their subscription to the paper or how many read the editorial in usa today. >> any newspaper editorial board as liberal as they may be has the right to endorse a candidate for president. that is not the issue. the quote you put up is the precise problem, they are not endorsing somebody, they are trying to make a judgment to disqualify a major party candidate that was elected by the largest number of people who participate in a republican primary process in history and that is the height of the arrogance you see among these
editorial boards, left-leaning or in some cases right-leaning opinion and it will backfire and this is what we have seen time and again with people from the establishment, both sides, play this to donald trump's dynamic he has set up which, the populace against the elite. to be a card-carrying member of the elite these days you have to express your fear stop position that donald trump, people don't buy it. be change hillary clinton as well, this is what you said about hillary clinton, nor does this editorial represent support for hillary clinton, hers are less likely to threaten national security will lead to a constitutional crisis. the editorial board does not have a consensus for a clinton endorsement. to all you readers who are holding newspaper, if you voted for donald trump, you are in
idiot and don't join you in doing that. is that smart? >> they lay on a lengthy argument, hard to deny. they point to the fact -- >> stand by, if they say to their readers, to those of you dumb enough to vote for donald trump. >> that is not what they say, not remotely what they say. it is their responsibility as an editorial board, they can decide having watched this election closely how they want to weigh in. this paper has never done this in their history and it is the top paper in the country, they view donald trump as so unfit that they wanted to make this unprecedented stand, he proves the wisdom, just this morning tweeting out check out the sex
tape of the former miss universe pageant, is that someone we want as president? they are not telling people they are stupid but their job is to inform the public and this is the way they provide that service. >> somebody millions of americans have voted for as president, it just, again, i wonder, why do this? >> that is the point. you could have an opinion but don't insult people who differ with you. they are not making an argument with hillary clinton, but republishing her talking points against donald trump and using them to suggest if you think he is qualified to be president you are an idiot, out of the mainstream of our thinking. they cite that donald trump has said, to disqualify herself. and we don't talk about that
each and leveraging it for personal gain, big donors an opportunity, and an opportunity to meet with her, private assets, they don't talk about her failure in benghazi. literally lying and leveraging, that -- >> no comparison between these candidates. than any presidential candidate has ever been. donald trump, we don't know anything about this man coming won't release his tax return. what we know about his business dealings are depressing including defrauding people at trump university, sifting contractors and stepping on the little guy every chance he can get. this editorial wasn't about hillary clinton, it was about donald trump. >> is there a chance this backfires?
they are trying to say don't even -- you are an idiot if you vote for him, you would be insane to vote for him, parse it anyway you want. >> they don't say that. this is their judgment. >> does it have a chance of backfiring? what it does, his voters feel the system is rigged and they don't -- nobody likes the media right now. doesn't have a chance of backfiring? >> it will backfire, no question, the bottom line, overplay to suggest a man number of primary voters who participated in the republican primary process is somehow unqualified is ridiculous. the hillary clinton basket of deplorable's comment when she called trump supported irredeemable, suggest that our country is inherently bigoted, they agree with her. they don't care they are
insulting people. >> it bothers me you are turning this -- it disturbs me you are turning this onto the voters. the editorial has nothing to do with the voters. it has nothing to do with a judgment call about who is supporting whom and his people are with him. bill: ten minutes before the hour, today was a day of spacecraft landing on a,. it has been chasing it for 12 years, how did it do? you are about to find out.
bill: balance of power contested in 39 days, key race in wisconsin. millions of campaign dollars flooding into the state as ron johnson faces off against a man whose seat he took. russ feingold. from the midwest bureau, what are we seeing in this hotly contested rematch? >> an interesting dynamic, the antiestablishment furor that got ron johnson elected in the first place is alive and well. the question is who is antiestablishment. the incumbent, ron johnson with one term, russ feingold with three terms and the senate. >> 34 year career politician, very little to show for it. during that same time i actually helped start a business in wisconsin, created good paying jobs, know how to grow a
business, we need to grow the economy. >> i am proud i served in the united states senate but in this case he is the senator. when you are a senator talking about national security you don't show up 50 or 60% of the hearings that have to do with homeland security, that is a problem. bill: outside money is coming in shy of $7 million for third parties in wisconsin, most of it is anti-finance. who has a leg up? can you gauge that? >> feingold has certainly got a chance. the most recent poll shows him with a lead. if you look at other polls you see him with a considerable lead. when johnson was elected in 2010 it was an off presidential year. our experts say in wisconsin low turnout will seem conservative. you have a presidential election and a nation subsumed with the
election. >> it is a competitive race. ron johnson got the motor going, in the air, has commercials, has presence. >> the senatorial campaign committee is delay and add in wisconsin, so confident with the feingold campaign, they can spend their money elsewhere. a spokesman for the republican national senatorial committee, their ad blitz for johnson in mid-october. bill: thank you, mike. >> donald trump launching a counterstrike against hillary clinton on twitter taking on her husband's infidelity, former beauty queen, is this strategy going to work? secore born. because, healthier doesn't happen all by itself. it needs to be earned every day. using wellness to keep away illness. and believing a single life can be made better by millions of others.
into an orbit this morning. shutting down right everything crash landed. rosetta will never be seen or heard begin. bill: that's sad. i had a workout chasing that comet. melissa: you can watch it online. bill: see you online. [music] bill: we begin the presidential candidate in full sprint with 39 days till election day. welcome to happening now. i'm john scott. >> we do begin with donald trump who is hitting the ground in michigan. that's where he's located marking fifth visit to the state since july as nominee opens line of attack against hillary
