? like a rhinestone cowboy ? ? ? this is "the cbs overnight news." a battle that started aboard an aircraft carrier, catapulted into a dog fight. donald trump and hillary clinton appeared aboard the u.s.s. intrepid museum in new york. we learned more about how they tend to fight america's enemies and each other. nancy cordes. >> it's a game to him. everything is a game. >> reporter: clinton argued that's the only explanation for some of trump's claims last night. >> the generals have been reduced to rubble. >> reporter: he called military leaders embarrassing and claimed
oil reserves when we had the chance. >> leave a certain group behind and take various sections where they have the oil. >> the united states of america does not invade other countries to plunder and pillage. we don't send our brave men and women around the world to steal oil. >> reporter: president obama traveling in laos, said it shows trump is unqualified. >> and every time he speaks, that opinion is confirmed. >> reporter: clinton also spoke >> we are not putting ground troops into iraq ever again. >> reporter: she was criticized by good. o.p. chair for not smiling enough while discussing national security. she was asked if she found the comment sexist. >> i don't take anything seriously that comes from the r.n.c. we were talking about serious issues last night.
. >> reporter: clinton announced today she will be meeting with a bipartisan group of high profile security experts in new york tomorrow, including david petraeus, michael chertoff and they're going to discuss how to defeat isis and it's fair to say there won't be a lot of smiling at that meeting either. and perhaps the biggest controversy over trump and russian president vladimir putin. >> if he says great things about me, i'm going to say he's great things. >> reporter: at the national
donald trump again heaped praise on russian president, vladimir putin. a man known for controlling the media. >> he has very strong control over the country. i don't like the system but in that country he's been a leader, far more than our president has been a leader. >> reporter: hillary clinton defended president obama. >> that is not just unpatriotic and insulting to the people of our country as well commander and chief, it is scary. because it suggests he will let putin do whatever putin wants to do. and then make excuses for him. >> i have no faith in hillary clinton or the leadership. i think under the leadership of barack obama and hillary clinton, the generals have been reduced to rubble. >> reporter: clinton then asked how the cold warrior would react.
about a republican nominee who attacks america's generals and heaps praise on russia's president? i think we know the answer. >> vladimir putin is an aggressor that doesn't share our interests. sfwlr >> reporter: other republicans told us they're unnerved with trump's fascination with putin. he's promised to seek closer ties with at what cost? tonight there is a standoff in the great plains. 200 native american tribes are fighting a construction of an oil pipeline and north dakota's governor has called in the national guard. mark albert is on the front line of this. >> reporter: the clashes near canon ball, north dakota, with
equipment damaged. the estimated 5,000 tribes and environmentalists say they were here without proper permit said or ignoring the historical and sacred significance. 23-year-old eagleman of the lakota showed us a sacred burial site the pipeline disturbed. it strikes me friendly and yet neither side has been friendly. >> they instuigated the whole situation. they used the dogs on my people, they came and maced us. what are we going to do? we're not going to stand back and let them do this anymore. >> reporter: part of the $7 billion dakota access pipeline will go about a mile north of the reservation. they worry it could leak. but the company says the
finished, stretching 1100 miles across four states. it starts from the oil rich bakken field to illinois. it will be among the safest most technologically advanced pipelines ever constructed" but these demonstrators don't believe it. green party nominee jill steener protested with them. a federal judge in washington is expected to rule by tomorrow on the tribe's request for an injunction. but win or lose, they won't leave. coming up, paying the price for not reading a credit card agreement. and later, country royalty
rg. cbs cares. now let's clear the sflomok for a just a minute and listen to clinton and trump on the issues. ? ? >> we ehahave to defeat isis. that is my highest counter-terrorism goal and we've got to do it with air power, with much more support for the arabs and the kurds who will fight on the ground against isis. we are not putting ground troops into iraq ever again and we're not putting ground troops into syria. >> i think under the leadership of barack obama and hillary clinton the generals have been reduced to rubble.
after that. we lose it. as an example. you look at iraq, how badly that was handled and then when president obama took over and he took everybody out and really isis was formed. i have a substantial chance of winning. if i win, i don't want to broadcast to the enemy exactly what my plan is. ? >> i have been very clear about the necessity for doing whatever is required to move the v.a. into the 21st century to provide the kind of treatment options that our veterans today desperately need and deserve. and that's what i will do as president. but i will not let the v.a. be privatized. i rolled out my mental health agenda last week and we've got to remove the stigma, help people currently serving not to feel that if they report, their
depression that somehow it's going to be a mark against them. ? >> under a part of my plan, if they have that long wait, they walk outside, they go to the local doctor, they choose the doctor, they choose the hospital whether it's public or private. they get themselves better. we will pay the bill and by the way, i never said take the v.a. private. i wouldn't do that. 22 people a day are killing themselves. a lot of it is they're killing themselves over the fact they're in tremendous pain and can't see a doctor. >> john, we were talking today about how specific clinton was about her plans last night but trump was not and that doesn't seem to diminish his support at all. >> reporter: no hillary clinton supporters love her command of information. but beyond her core of supporters, there are those whom that isn't enough. they have one of two emotional reactions, either they don't
have a gut-level connection to donald trump and hillary clinton isn't going to break through that connection by mastering the material. the only way she can, say pollsters is essentially replacing one emotional reaction with another one, fear. but for those who don't see him as unfit, making him seem unfit isn't just about the facts. the voters who like him think he can surround advisors, he was a success in business and in the primaries, so he must know something and they think judgment can replace smarts and experience which is why he continues to insist he was against military action in libya and iraq, even though that's not the case and he supported both. >> we'll see you sunday on "face the nation." and then today there is the third-party candidate who wants
he wants to put himself on the map in the worst way. today he did. here's julianna goldman. >> what would you do if you were elected about aleppo. >> reporter: gary johnson was exbe expected to answer by providing his plan for the civil war and refugee crisis. >> about aleppo. >> and what is aleppo? >> you'r >> no. >> reporter: shortly after said he felt horrible, but still struggled. >> knowing there's the city in between the two forces really at the epicenter of the -- but not remembering or identifying that that's aleppo, guilty. >> reporter: in a statement to cbs news, johnson said he's human and he blanked. should i have identified aleppo? yes. do i understand its significance? yes.
battleground in the nearly 5-year civil war between rebels and the syrian regime. this image just last month has become a symbol of the war's brutality. >> is this the craziest election ever? >> reporter: johnson's foreign policy slap couldn't come at a worse time for the new mexicoen governor. he's been trying to raise his poll numbers to secure a spot on the debate stage with donald trump and hillary clinton. he needs 15 national polls and he's currently averaging under 9%. in another interview today, he acknowledged the consequences of a presidential candidate seeming to lack a basic understanding of a major foreign policy issue. he said for those who believe it's a when it's time to move to underwear, toddlers see things... a bit differently. thanks to pampers easy ups... while they see their first underwear...
