>> reporter: in his surprise trip to mexico earlier in the day allowed him to say he could work together with mexico's leader and how that would ultimately shape up is unknown. >> we discussed the wall. we didn't discuss payment of the wall. >> reporter: the mexican president enrique pena neito extended the invitation to trump and clinton. she criticized trump from ohio. >> it certainly takes more than trying to make up for a year of insults and insinuations by dropping in on our neighbors for a few hours and then flying home again. >> reporter: hours after that joint press conference, mexico's president took to twitter and he countered trump's claims. he told him in no uncertain terms that mexico would not pay for that wall. >> all right. devon devin, diane? >> all right. devin, you covered this closely, what was your take on his approach? a lot of people saying this is the question of is he softening his approach?
3:04 am
>> by all accounts, he was actually quite polite, serious. very diplomatic. something we don't see very often. >> think he was trying to show his presidential side there? >> maybe a little bit. and then he turned it off when he got back to arizona. and now a debate between what was said and who is paying for the wall. surely a topic not going to go away any time soon. >> i don't think it's over. >> more on that coming up. for now we'll move on to the other big story of the morning, that is the pacific storm madeline is now a tropical storm. >> it is battering hawaii's big island with heavy rain and maximum winds about 65 miles per hour. >> despite the storm, president obama has just arrived in honolulu for a quick visit. but back on the big island there could still be damage from high waves coming ashore and flash flooding as well as mudslides are also a concern.
3:05 am
>> and joining us by phone now live, hawaii state senator russell rudeman. he is a small business owner. thank you for joining us by phone. you were prepared for the worst, but tell us what it's like right now. >> well, it's windy and rainy, as you might expect, but it's not catastrophically so. i think we pretty much dodged a bullet in terms of devastating effects from the hurricane, at least as far as my neighborhood. there's a neighborhood facing the storm more directly, a low lying area that's probably being inundated with storm surge, but we didn't get hit directly by a hurricane and that's a huge relief. >> senator, you said you dodged a bullet with that. but now there's another storm headed your way. what kind of steep safety precautions are on the way for lester, and did all this preparation for the previous storm help things out do you think? >> well, yes.
3:06 am
i do think so. we prepared for another storm a few weeks back named darby. and we started taking it seriously after we got hit with ezell two years ago. so yes, we were pretty well prepared. we're just crossing our fingers that its track takes it far enough away that it's just a lot of rain. >> and senator, even though you're keeping your eye on the bigger storm, lester a category four right now, what sorts of precautions are you keeping in place, and speak a little bit about your businesses and how you've had to handle those. >> well, like most businesses on the east side of hilo and puna, east side of the big island, we did close today and let all the employees go home and be safe before the roads got too bad. so businesses have closed mostly on this side of the island. i think some of them will destroy tomorrow as the storms are around to that side. that's about it.
3:07 am
of course, we have all taken precautions by removing anything loose that might fly around too much and making sure we have food, water and maybe a generator. and there has been some power outages. i've been pretty lucky myself so far. >> and senator, we've seen before in back-to-back storms whether one isn't so bad and people don't take warnings about the second one seriously. are you worried about that at all and what do you want to say to those people? >> i think we all need to take hurricane warnings seriously, but i think we all take it very seriously. i think it will be good news -- it seems to be taking a trek taking it sufficiently far from the island. i think this will have been the worst, personally, but of course we'll be prepared. because my neighborhood, in particular, was hit pretty hard by the hurricane two years ago. >> all right. state senator from the big island of hawaii, thank you for joining us. and stay safe out there. in the meantime, tropical storm hermine is drenching the
