7:04 am
in mexico city and then here talking about border walls and nasty deportation that trump supportive supporters come to love and ended with a flirtation with a softer immigration policy. >> anyone who has entered the united states illegally is subject to deportation. >> reporter: in phoenix, donald trump promised mass deportations, but did not explain how he would do it. >> people will know can't just smuggle in, hunker down, and wait to be legalized. >> reporter: undocumented immigrants must return to their home country and apply for re-entry, trump said, vowing to subject new immigrants to ideology tests. >> it's our right as a sovereign nation to choose immigrants who they by are the likely to thrive and flourish and love us.

7:06 am
mexican financing of a border wall did come up. >> we did discuss the wall and didn't discuss payment of the wall. that will be for a later date. >> reporter: the topic did come up. mexican president knnieto said mexico would not pay for the wall. something that trump did not want to recognize in front of the mexican president. >> mainly, thank you. meanwhile, hillary clinton strongly criticized donald tweeted trump just failed his first foreign test. diplom d it isn't as easy as it looks. nancy cordes joins u.s. with the latest. >> reporter: the clinton campaign as you can imagine had a field day with that discrepancy over the wall. they say trump talks tough about making mexico pay, but chickened
7:07 am
trump choked. that was the verdict from clinton's campaign chairman, after trump said he and mexican president pena nieto didn't get into a key topic. when the mexican president contradicted trump, the clinton amended its statement. it turns out trump didn't just choke, he got beat in the room and lied about it. >> you don't build a coalition by insulting our friends. >> reporter: in cincinnati, the she knows diplomats and trump isn't one of them. >> dropping in on our neighbors for a few hours and then flying home again, that is not how it works. >> reporter: her campaign noted that trump's flattery yesterday. >> mexicans are just beyond approach. >> reporter: doesn't match up with his own mass pronouncements like i want nothing to do with mexico. don't do business with mexico.
7:08 am
both clinton and trump were invited by pena, but only trump jumped at the invitation and the opportunity to hit clinton for not going. >> she didn't go to mexico. she was invited. she doesn't have the strength or the stamina to make america great again. believe me. >> reporter: the clinton camp is firing back this morning, calling trump's arizona speech money with their wromouth is. they are investing six figures to buy ad time in that solidly red state but unclear if they think they have a shot there or if they just trying to get trump to spend more money to protect his narrow lead in arizona. >> also in washington is cbs news political director and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson. good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> reporter: all right. they billed this speech the big
7:09 am
did he clear up his policy? >> well, on this specific question that was in doubt about what to do with the 11 million undocumented people in america, it was still a little bit confusing. during the primaries, he said they would be out of america so fast, it would make your head spin. he didn't say that. he talked about a deportation force, but just for those who had committed crimes beyond simply being in america illegally. but, basically, if you look at what he said, he is basically calling fo all of those 11 million to get out of the country and then get in line behind those already waiting. then he was kind of fuzzy about what would happen if people did not self-deport. if they didn't self-deport, he said there would be no amnesty. if you add up what ed, presumably that would be some kind of force would deport as undocumented. >> seeing major garrett earlier
7:10 am
perhaps a softer side, a more diplomatic side, did last night's speech strike you as somehow a course correction for the base? >> well, it's -- yes. he is trying to ride two horses. on the one hand trying to be the donald trump of the primaries who is giving the base what they want in that rally in arizona. and then by going to mexico and being much more subdued, trying to show those particularly republican voters who think he is too volatile and t that he can inhabit the presidency. hillary clinton has said he will go overseas and embarrass america. there is nothing he did particularly in his visit to mexico that was embarrassing. the problem is for voters, there is a long record of things that donald trump has said and so one press conference has to weigh against all of the footage that donald trump has created over his many years that makes those republicans nervous. >> speaking of clinton.
7:11 am
against trump's speech and his visit to mexico. what is her strategy behind this? >> the strategy is don't let donald trump pivot. don't let anything that might look presidential suggest that that is the essential trump or if there are two trumps, it's a part of a multifaceted character. her argument there is one trump and the trump who has said a number of things that people have found offensive, particularly those republican suburban voters, those college-educated voters that republicans usually get, find risky and she wants to remind them of that and the way they have been doing it for weeks and are doing it again, even in the ad in arizona, is just replaying donald trump's words. >> john dickerson, good to see you and thank you for joining us. >> thanks. in our next half hour, we will talk to the democratic candidate for vice president, tim kaine about donald trump's immigration plan and what hillary clinton would do differently. that is ahead. tropical storm hermine intensified overnight in the

7:14 am
georgia. demarco? >> a dangerous combination. omar, thank you for that. meteorologist lissette gonzalez of our miami station wfor is tracking the storms. >> reporter: tropical storm hermine is strengthen the gulf of mexico and moving north/northeast and forecast to be a hurricane before making la along the north florida coast and moving into southeast georgia and likening weakening to a tropical storm as it rises up the carolina coast and into the weekend we could see a depression or remnant area of low pressure off the mid-atlantic or northeast coast. now we are seeing a hurricane warning up for the path handle of florida and tropical storm warnings watches in place for the georgia/carolina coast. storm surge warning as well as as some areas along the big bend

7:16 am
carried out by coalition forces. fran townsend is a former security visser to president george w. bush. good morning, fran. >> good morning. >> with regard to this claim, unus official called it quite simply a joke. what do you make of it? >> right. well, look. we ought to evaluate that based on the facts we know and, frankly, what we have seen from russia's involvement in syria is that they have spent their time init and going after civilians and supporting the assad regime. nothing to show they have the tactical precision to for an isis attack. >> they are trying to claim credit what would be a big blow to isis' sternal operations to date. just how big of this is a win for not only the u.s. but also protecting europe from terrorist
7:17 am
it's at least a temporary win. when we battled al qaeda that number three position, the director of external operations, at least temporarily disrupts their ability to conduct those kind of attacks. we ought to remember that adnani is responsible for external attacks causing 1800 deaths through europe and including some of the attacks in the united states like orlando and san bernardino. taking him out, at least temporarily, will disrupt them. remember, theyl position and what you hope is, over time, if you keep targeting that person, that the person who is responsible for external operations becomes less experienced and less competent over time. >> fran, what does this tell us about the relationship between russia and the u.s. when it comes to the fight against isis? >> this has been, demarco, this has been an ongoing problem for the united states. we have many disagreements right now with russia, but probably the most significant in terms of our own domestic security is
7:18 am
inside syria. they are unwilling to coordinate or cooperate with us and our goals are quite different. the u.s. made clear we do not support the assad regime and said it ought to go and russia has quite clearly said they do support him. as long as we have different goals there, this conflict, the real losers here are the syria civilians and people. >> a question about intelligence, fran. i mean, adnani is the number two or number three, a big deal. suggests our intelligence is pretty good, right? >> that's right. it's good and it's getting better and that ought to be a real concern. isis has lost substantial amounts of 40% of their territory inside syria. and so -- and iraq. yes, our intelligence is good and getting better. >> fran townsend, thank you. >> brazil ousted president is denouncing the senators who voted to re-of-remove her from

7:33 am
controversial meeting made headlines in mexico this morning. some picked up on the mexican president calling trump's policy a huge threat. donald trump said last night he'll report immigrants, but he blasted his opponent's immigration plan saying it will make the problem worse. >> hillary clinton, for insta instance, talks constantly about her fears that familie w separated. american families who have been permanently separated from their loved ones because of a preventable homicide. because of a preventable death. because of murder. she doesn't know what she's doing except open borders and let everybody come in and destroy our country, by the way. just ask the border patrol about hillary clinton.

7:35 am
clinton's position. hillary's position is we need comprehensive reform. the basic pillars of reform are quite clear. we have to do things first to make sure that employers can verify the immigration status of people who are here. we've got to keep families together. that is a key priority. we have to create a path for people who follow the laws and pay taxes over a long period of time to earn their way to citizenship. very rigorous and difficult fact security. these were the things that the senate did in a bipartisan way in 2013. and for donald trump to say that's just open borders shows that he hasn't even read the first thing about this bipartisan reform. hillary is committed to doing a reform. these 11 million undocumented workers. >> the basic principles are these. that if people are here and
7:36 am
willing to work and basically come into the light and follow all the laws of this country and pay taxes, then over a period of very long time, they could earn a path to citizenship. and that is an important thing similar to what similar president reagan did in 1986. these are the basic principles of the plan we put in place. again, we did it in a bipartisan way in the senate three years ago, including funding for border security. but, as you know, the not even take up the bill. we could have done this a long time ago and we'll push it in the first 100 days of appointment administration. >> senator, i'd like to ask you that the vision of donald trump made to mexico yesterday. he said the secretary was invited to mexico, but didn't go. in fact, suggested she didn't have the strength or the stan mu for it very specifically. what did you make of that characterization? >> well, you know where hillary
7:37 am
legion in ohio. she was talking about the role of america in the world. when hillary was doing that, donald trump paid a little, you know, fly by to mexico. he walked into a meeting with the mexican president and after saying for months we're going to build a wall and mexico is going to pay for it, he just forgot to bring that up. no, he didn't have the guts to look the mexican president in the eye and bring up the central position in his campaign. it was a diplomatic embarra embarrassment and shows the guy is not ready for prime minister. >> this was donald trump's first meeting with the head of state and immediately opened the floor to reporters for questions. >> well, you see reports from hillary clinton every day. she talks to the press everywhere she goes. she did a press conference when she was at the recent -- she did
7:38 am
african-american and hispanic newspaper publishers. >> that was the first time she talked. she doesn't do it that often. >> well, look, i don't see what the massive difference is between a press conference and talking to the press everywhere you go. she talks to the press a lot. and i have been with her when she talks to the press. >> just to set the record straight, it has been 272 days since she had a formal news conference. i want to also ask you, senator, it has b >> again, i think she did, i think she did a news conference with the publishers of the nation's african-american and hispanic newspapers within the last month. and that counts. they're a legitimate group. the press conference with them counts. >> "new york times" recently reported that unlike any other presidential nominee in history, she is not allowing journalists to accompany her on this plain. the campaign plain. this is something that has been standard since i covered
7:39 am
why is that the case? do you believe in transparency? do you think this will change? >> well, i mean, i'm going to use my own example. i'm traveling, too, and i travel in a small plane and the press travels in a plane with me. we're not on the plane together. but that's going to change in about a week. and i think that's fairly common during campaigns. i think that is something that, yeah, as we get into the thick of the campaign and labor day, that is going to ch allow the american press to go with him yesterday when he went to mexico, which was highly unusual. >> senator tim kaine, we appreciate your time this morning. >> great, good to be with you guys, thanks. so, how long did city officials know about lead poisoning at an indiana public housing complex? ahead the efforts to help families move out of their homes to avoid further toxic contamination in one city.
