those very words to donald trump and here's what he told us. hillary clinton said of you just today that, "just like he shouldn't have his finger on the button, he shouldn't have his hands on our economy." were you watching? >> i was not watching. i heard what she said. i built a great, great company. it's worth tens -- i mean, it's just a very, very valuable company. some of the greatest assets in the world, including with what we're sitting on right here. she has a bad temperament, she would do so badly with the economy. >> but you know their argument, that president obama inherited the great recession, that he created 14 million new private sector jobs in six and a half years. >> but we haven't come back. we have a dead economy. we are dead stagnant. we're losing our jobs to mexico. we're losing our jobs to so many other places. i mean, you look at mexico, what they're doing, it's unbelievable. it's like a modern-day miracle, where the companies, whether it's carrier or ford or so many other companies just pouring into mexico. >> you bring up carrier, ford, you criticized apple for taking jobs overseas and hillary clinton said something today
that we'll likely hear again from her in this general election, that the trump ties are made in china, the trump suits in mexico, trump furniture in turkey, trump barware in slovenia. >> it's true. and you know why? because they devalue their currencies and they make it impossible for companies to compete. and she doesn't have to say that, because i say it all the time. i say, unfortunately, my ties are made in china, and i will say this, the hats, make america great again, i searched long and hard to find somebody that made the hats in this country. >> but back to that point. when you criticize carrier and ford and apple, you know what the clinton camp is going to say. they're going to say, how do you criticize them when you're doing the same thing? >> i openly say i do it. but you know what, let them charge me a tax when the ties come back in. i'd love to be able to not do it. and the way we're not going to be able to do it and the way people will stop doing it and stop moving -- as an example, carrier announced they're leaving 1,400 great people that have worked for them for many, many years and they're moving to mexico.
but if we put a barrier from them and we have to do it -- we have no choice. because we're losing all of our companies -- >> what kind of barrier are you talking about? because argument is that -- >> a tax. a tax. it's not going to hurt the economy. it's going to make america much richer. >> there was something that she said today, she pointed to something that you have said out on the campaign trail, saying, "i'm going to do for the country what i've done for business." but then she argued that you've intentionally ran up huge amounts of debt. you've bankrupted your companies not once, but four times. and that hundreds of jobs were lost. how are you going to respond to clinton? and were average americans affected in any way by these bankruptcies? >> okay, so, what i've done is, i've used, brilliantly, the laws of the country. and not personally, just corporate. and if you look at people like myself that are at the highest levels of business, they use -- many of them have done it many, many times. >> but did any average americans pay the price, though, for that? >> no, but i'm running a business. you have to understand, i'm running a business. i'm running a business for myself, for my company, for my employees, and for my family. hillary wouldn't have any idea how to do that. don't forget. somebody has to understand debt. she doesn't understand debt. >> we know this will be her argument this fall. that every major candidate in
the last four decades has shown the american people their taxes. she says maybe you paid nothing or close to nothing. maybe you're not as rich as you say you are. maybe you haven't given away as much to charity. so, i wanted to give you the opportunity to respond right now to hillary clinton. will you reveal your taxes to the american people before the election? >> as soon as the audit's done. i'm under a routine order, and i've been ordered it many, many years in a row. they're audits, they go, and they're routine. and by the way, you don't learn very much, if anything, from a tax return. >> but they'll learn your tax rate. >> no, but i filed papers with the federal elections. now, when the audit's complete, 100%, i don't care. a lot of people haven't filed their tax return, a lot of people haven't given their tax returns, prior to a number of years. >> what if that audit is after election day? is there a chance your tax return won't -- >> i don't know that it will be, i hope it's not. but you know what, if it's before, i get my tax returns, i have no problem with it. >> there's a chance we won't see them? >> there will be a chance. i think it will probably be done before. it's very routine. but there would certainly be a chance. >> and about this question over charity that she brings up on
the campaign trail, do you want to reveal how much you paid to charity? >> i give a lot of money to charity. i would certainly tell you about it, but i would give you -- i'd have to come up with a number. i think i revealed over a period of years i've given over $100 million to charity. i think $102 million or something there. >> but you can come up with that number for us? >> i think i would. yeah, i would have no problem with it. >> your former campaign manager, corey lewandowski, fired in the last 24 hours. he told us that he didn't see it coming. your son, don jr., told me this morning that he was in the room for that firing. how big of a role do your children play in these decisions? >> i really have them involved mostly with the business, and, you know, they're people that i have great respect for, they're my children. i have great respect for them. >> but back to your son being in that room, don jr. that was pretty eye opening for a lot of people, i think, and will there be a role for him, a role for ivanka in the trump white house? >> probably not. i would leave them to run the business. and i think that's what they really like doing and that's what they're doing now.
>> we brought up corey lewandowski, he's now out. so, you fired your campaign manager. some pretty disappointing fund-raising numbers for may. >> well, not really. i mean, i think there was only one day that was reported, and just so you understand, we've actually had some very good days, but they're not reported yet. >> let me just ask you, in the same time frame, though, you raised $3 million. mitt romney had raised $23 million in that time frame. john mccain, $20 million. and you are up against hillary clinton, who raised $25 million. >> well, no, she's getting her money from the wall street guys and all the special interests, and i really don't -- i'll be honest, i've never raised money before for this, because i've never done it before. i think i'd be very good at it. as far as i'm concerned, i'd be very happy to continue to self-fund. i have -- >> are you going to continue to self-fund? >> i may, because i think -- >> how much? >> i don't know. i can do whatever i want. she's going to spend $1.2 billion on an election, and i'm trying to say, where do you spend that money? remember this. i spent $50 million and i won. other people that were running against me spent many times that amount, and they lost, not even close. >> will you spend another 50
million in the general or more? >> i might. i might. i really might decide to do that. >> more of our one-on-one with donald trump on the way. he points to the very close polls in pennsylvania and ohio tonight. he also weighs in on hillary clinton's faith, as we ask him what he would like to know about her and religion. and we ask, what would be off-limits in going after clinton in the general election now? that's later tonight on "nightline" and tomorrow on "gma." in the meantime, after hillary clinton's attack today on trump and the economy, arguing, in her words, "we can't let him bankrupt america like we are one of his failed casinos." donald trump will come out swinging tomorrow, taking on both hillary and bill clinton. so, let's get right to abc's cecilia vega in columbus, ohio, tonight. cecilia, quick question on this before we move on. is the clinton campaign ready for what's coming? what are they telling you? >> reporter: well, david, they say they're not worried. they don't expect donald trump to reveal anything about the clintons that hasn't already been said about them in the past. we are hearing from trump sources, that he does plan to talk about her role in benghazi, he will talk about donations
made to the clinton foundation. but look, you'll remember, it wasn't that long ago that both sides seemed to be friends. you remember that photo from the trump wedding. they were both there. today, though, the gloves are off. hillary clinton hit donald trump for 45 minutes straight here in ohio, and her aides tonight, david, are telling me there is more to come tomorrow in another policy speech in north carolina, they're calling this a one-two punch. david? >> all right, dueling speeches tomorrow. cecilia, thank you. in the meantime, to other news tonight. there is a new storm system moving into parts of the east this evening, while in the west, right now, heat warnings amid deadly triple-digit temperatures. all of it, of course, fuming fueling more than a dozen wildfires in seven states. two fires side-by-side north of los angeles. the giant plumes of smoke seen over the city skyline there. and this boy, helping his family flee their home in the shadow of the fires. mandatory evacuations for hundreds of people at this hour. and then, that other storm, 30 million americans are in the path in the east. we've got it all covered, beginning with abc's matt gutman on those evacuations right now.
>> reporter: tonight, those two fires perched just outside metro l.a., threatening to merge into one explosive inferno. aircraft buzzing canyon walls and tree tops, the flames seeming to leap up and the choppers. named the fish and reservoir fires, they've devoured over 5,000 acres in a single day and spewed embers skyward like volcanoes overnight. one of the fires allegedly caused when this pick-up crashed off the road. >> mandatory evacuations to the residents. >> reporter: officials ordering hundreds to flee their homes. this family now packing up what's most important. their three kids. >> it's very terrifying to see all the fire, just imagining it coming down. >> reporter: one of the reasons this fire exploded overnight is because of this terrain. it is incredibly steep here. now, fire crews haven't been able to make their way up these steep mountain walls, so, the only way to fight this fire has been the air attack. with little wind, the heat has kept these fires alive.
that heat wave topping out at 118 degrees in phoenix, blamed for five deaths. paramedics responding to more than 100 calls for those suffering in the blistering temperatures. david, some of the brush that you're seeing around me hasn't burned in decades here. which has made it very hard going for the firefighters here. and they're encountering conditions that they would only expect much later in the season. david? >> all right, matt gutman with us again tonight. thanks, matt. let's get right to meteorologist rob marciano. we've got storms in the midwest and in the east, but rob, you were telling us, this heat in the west, we don't usually see this early. >> reporter: it's extraordinary for june. phoenix didn't get under 90 last night. heat advisories through wednesday. vegas, you hit a record today, probably will do it again tomorrow, as this heat expands out to the east. into kansas city, st. louis, over 100 degrees tomorrow. those storms in the east today from west virginia into new jersey, 80-mile-an-hour winds in south jersey, doing some damage there and we look for more storms to fire up overnight tonight. in the upper midwest, on the doorstep of chicago tomorrow morning, then lifting north throughout the day.
the red and orange zone includes chicago, ft. wayne, damaging winds likely there. continuing into the overnight, so, a situation we'll have to watch tomorrow. >> all right, tracking it through tomorrow. rob, thanks again. here in new york city tonight, the joint terrorism task force was called in for a time after a stunning discovery in a vehicle just outside a major tunnel into new york. inside the vehicle, this arsenal. police say they found guns, ammunition, knives, camouflage equipment and more. they arrested three people in the truck, and here tonight, abc's gio benitez. >> reporter: the arrest taking place during morning rush hour, at one of new york city's busiest tunnels. this distinctive truck stopped by police for a cracked windshield, but inside, an arsenal of weapons found. seven guns, including an ar-type semiautomatic rifle and a shotgun, body armor, knives, 2,000 rounds of ammunition. even a military-grade helmet. >> we had the driver exit the vehicle, and when the driver got out, he noticed a .45-caliber handgun on the driver's seat
that the driver was sitting on. >> reporter: but early fears of a terror connection gave way to something else. according to police, the three people in the truck said there's a reason for it all. they were on their way to rescue a 16-year-old girl from a new york drug den. it turns out the driver, john cramsey, just lost his 20-year-old daughter to a suspected heroin overdose, according to a medical examiner. cramsey, who owns a gun range in pennsylvania, alluded to his plans to rescue the 16-year-old on facebook, telling one of his friends, quote, "how about a road trip to new york to do an extraction? saving a 16-year-old girl is priceless." and david, tonight, cramsey and those two passengers have been charged with illegal gun possession. and in another bizarre twist, police say they found the girl cramsey was looking for, and they say she told them, "i don't need to be rescued." police are still investigating. david? >> gio benitez tonight. thanks, gio. to orlando this evening, and this question. could the nightclub massacre have been prevented?
a source close to the investigation now telling abc news that the gunman's wife told investigators she saw him leave with a bag of guns that night, and that she tried to stop him. abc's linzie janis is in orlando. >> reporter: tonight, omar mateen's wife telling investigators more about the night of the massacre. a source telling abc news, noor salman saw her husband leaving the house with a bag of guns. also describing her attempt to stop him from leaving, saying she was, quote, concerned. soon after, mateen opened fire inside that nightclub. it was there that the husband and wife exchanged text messages. she seemed to not know where he was. investigators also revealing that the day before the attack, someone in the mateen family bought three tickets to fly to san francisco in july. and david, the fbi says it looked into mateen twice in 2013 and once in 2014, each time, finding no evidence to suggest he was a threat. david?
>> linzie janis, thank you. and to a developing story overseas. the final leg of that life-saving mission to the south pole. we are now told it's been completed. remember, they're flying in complete darkness. dark 24 hours a day. and look, the small plane making that treacherous 1,500-mile trip from the edge of antarctica to the research station at the bottom of the world. they have landed on skis over the icy terrain, where they have just arrived. at least one worker there is in need of medical help. that rescue crew will now wait ten hours before deciding when they might head back out. there is still much more ahead on "world news tonight" this tuesday. we have new reporting tonight after that young actor was killed, trapped between his suv and his gate. questions tonight about his jeep, which had been recalled. the fix had been revealed just days prior. we have much more information and what drivers need to know tonight. also this evening, the major recall of frozen foods that may be on your dinner table right now. and then, the young children out with their father, suddenly carjacked in the parking lot, in their father's car. a woman driving away with the children in the backseat.
the father chasing after them, what happens next, as we continue here. ot 22 i accept i do a shorter set these days. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but i won't play anything less than my best. so if there's something better than warfarin, i'm going for it. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus it had significantly . . . to hear. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... ...and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk

next tonight, to gwi next tonight, to growing concern across this country over a vehicle recall after the tragic death of that rising star, trapped between his suv and his driveway gate. here's abc's clayton sandell on the fix that had been revealed just days before the accident. >> may i have your attention please? >> reporter: tonight, it's still not clear exactly how actor anton yelchin was pinned and killed by his own car, a 2015 jeep grand cherokee. but last summer, federal safety investigators began looking into complaints about the gear shifter in jeep grand cherokees, chrysler 300s and dodge chargers. by april of this year, chrysler issued a voluntary recall. reports of rollaway cars leading to 212 crashes and 41 injuries. but judy borlin says, a month later, she still didn't know about the recall, when her car
that she thought was in park rolled over her legs. that recall notice arrived a few days later. chrysler says the shifter did not fail, blaming the rollaways on drivers who didn't realize their cars weren't in park. the company is now offering a software fix and a new warning system for those recalled cars, but you'll notice, in the 2016 model, chrysler has gone back to a more traditional shifter design. >> bottom line is, what chrysler has to do is to fix it, fix it soon and get it right. >> reporter: and tonight, there are more than 800,000 affected cars that need fixing. clayton sandell, abc news, denver. >> all right, we'll stay on this. when we come back tonight, there is news this evening about a major frozen food recall. also, the children carjacked in the parking lot. their frantic father chasing after the car on foot. and the new lawsuit tonight against starbucks about how much they're really pouring into your cup. ou have moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis, anu're talking to doctor about your medication... this is humira. this is humira helping to relieve my pain
