5:39 pm
in prayer with pastors. an event that started with a racial slur. trump introduced by former boxing promoter don king, once convicted of manslaughter. king, recounting something he once said about racism in america, used the n-word in church. >> if you are intelligent, intellectual, you are an intellectual negro. if you are dancing and sliding and gliding [ bleep ] -- i mean negro. you are dancing and sliding and gliding negro. >> reporter: the offensive slip comes as trump is trying to appeal to black voters in blunt terms. >> our african-american communities are absolutely in the worst shape that they've ever been in before, ever, ever, ever. >> reporter: from president obama, a history lesson. >> he missed that whole civics lesson about slavery and jim crow. >> reporter: and today, from congressman john lewis, a hero of the civil rights movement, this -- >> i don't know what mr. trump
5:40 pm
is talking about. i invite him to come and walk in my shoes. >> reporter: today, in a fox news town hall on issues impacting the black community, trump promoting a controversial police tactic that some say encourages racial profiling. >> what would you do to help stop that violence, you know, black-on-black crime? >> right. i would do stop and frisk. i think you have to. >> reporter: this comes as trump is also under scrutiny for using charity money donated to his foundation to settle lawsuits against his golf clubs. in one example, when trump's mar-a-lago resort faced a $120,000 fine for having a flag pole that was too big, trump settled the case by pledging $100,000 to a veteran's group. the check came straight from the foundation, not from trump's own wallet. his campaign manager admits it happened, but downplayed the issue. >> so, let's make very clear to the viewers, a veteran's charity received $100,000, because of that. and i'm sure that they benefitted from it.
5:41 pm
>> reporter: tax records show the billionaire himself hasn't donated a penny to his own foundation in eight years. still, "the washington post" reports he used foundation money to buy a tim tebow helmet at a charity auction. and to pay for two portraits of himself. >> all right, tom llamas with us live tonight from michigan. and tom, the trump campaign now reting to those initial reports in "the washington post"? >> reporter: david, the trump campaign is firing back, saying "the washington post" story is filled with omissions and inaccuracies, yet, they provided no examples. david? >> tom, as you know, just five days from now, donald trump and hillary clinton take the stage for their first presidential debate, their first one-on-one encounter, right here on abc. the stakes could not be higher. and tonight here, we have new details about how each of the candidate is preparing. and the strategies could not be more different. here's abc's cecilia vega. >> reporter: hillary clinton in orlando today, in one of the last times voters will see her
5:42 pm
before monday's big debate. after this, she's hunkering down to cram. >> donald trump is a self-proclaimed great debater, who won every one of the republican debates, so, i take nothing for granted. >> reporter: two very different candidates, with two very different debate prep strategies. clinton immersing herself in briefing books daily. she's also watching footage of trump in past debates, and holding mock debates with someone playing her opponent. as for donald trump, this is what he told david recently. >> any mock debates? >> haven't thought about it much. it could happen. >> reporter: but now, trump's team says no mock debates for him. instead, he has an ipad loaded with old debate footage of clinto he occasionally meets with a team of advisers, including family members and former fox news boss roger ailes. but sources say those sessions have devolved into story telling, rather than serious preparation. will trump get nervous when he takes that stage? >> i'll be a little bit. i mean, you have to be a little
5:43 pm
bit. >> reporter: the one tactic both sides are using? already complaining about the questions. >> i'm going to get -- be treated very, very unfairly by the moderators. i think the system is being rigged, so, it's -- it's going to be a very unfair debate. >> reporter: clinton's team says they're worried she'll be the one getting tougher questions, alluding to the recent commander in chief forum. the stakes couldn't be higher. >> donald trump has said about you and the debates, "i know how to handle hillary." do you know how to handle trump? >> well, we'll see, won't we, on september 26th. >> and cecilia vega with us live from orlando. cecilia, donald trump, we heard him there tell me in recent days, he's preparing maybe not in the traditional way, were his words, but tonight, some of the people inside his campaign now telling you they're concerned? >> reporter: david, in fact, both campaigns tonight are trying to lower expectations for this big debate, but some trump aides are telling us, they are now considering relocating his debate prep sessions this weekend from his estate in new jersey, where there's a golf course, to headquarters at trump
5:44 pm
tower in new york, hoping that will help him focus more. >> all right, the stakes could not be higher. cecilia, our thanks to you, as always. of course, abc news will have full coverage of the first big debate, right here on abc, live at 9:00 eastern monday night. i'll be joining george and the entire powerhouse political team right here monday night. in the meantime, the news continues here, next tonight, to that grilling on capitol hill today. the ceo of the company that markets those life-saving epi-pens, questioned about drastic price hikes, and her own soaring salary, up nearly 700% in recent years. abc's mary bruce is right there. >> reporter: for more than two and a half hours, frustrated lawmakers grilled and scolded the embattled ceo of mylan pharmaceuticals, heather bresch. >> it is driving exorbitant profits. >> i think it's disgusting. >> the greed is astounding. >> reporter: accusing her company of putting profits before paustients. hiking the price of life-saving epi-pen packs to $600. but bresch defending the
5:45 pm
company, pointing out they now offer a $300 generic. >> our concern was absolutely that everyone who needs an epi-pen has one. >> reporter: mylan's sales projected to hit more than a billion dollars this year. bresch's salary is soaring, too, up nearly 700%, to $18.9 million. >> you got a hefty increase. >> i am blessed and fortunate. >> what have you done to earn that kind of increase? >> reporter: and now, questions about the role her mother played in promoting the device in schools when she was the head of a national education group. >> i certainly thought it was a very cheap shot to bring my mother into this. >> reporter: and for families hoping for an apology -- will you apologize? still, no answer. >> and mary bruce with us live from capitol hill. still no answer from her tonight? >> reporter: no apology, david. but the company is offering rebates and that cheaper generic. but bresch says the overall price of this device is fair. she says the real problem here is the health care system, not her company. david?
