strength, the stamina, or the ability to straighten out our country. >> reporter: despite being among the oldest in u.s. history, neither trump's 70. a new tv ad focused on the economy. interestingly, the title is two americas, once democrat john edwards' catch phrase. nor norah, trump's biggest so far. >> i remember that. thank you so much. donald trump is launching a new push to win over minority voters. his campaign revealed trump will impact the network in detroit. the only african-american owned and operated christian tv network. it comes with trump and clinton campaigns continue to argue over race relations. nancy cordes with the latest.
7:09 am
truly a first, nora. two presidential candidates accusing each other of bigotry. followed up with a new ad flushing out accusations while courting controversy on the issue this weekend with, what else, a tweet. >> your schools are no good. you have no jobs. look at my african-american over here. >> latest accuses trump racial inscensensitivinsensitiv. dwayne wade's cousin just shot and killed walking her baby in chicago. just what i've been saying. african-americans will vote trump. chastised trump. >> we're extending our sympathy. that's the only reaction that's appropriate. >> the day before, he sought to tie trump to the kkk.
7:10 am
are not american values. >> trump did eventually tweet his condolences and chris christie accused hillary clinton. >> this type of discourse is just unwarranted, but it was started by mrs. clinton. >> hillary clinton is a bigot. >> trump beat clinton to the bunch by about 12 hours. >> there has been a steady stream of bigotry coming from him. >> two sides tangling clinton foundation and the access to donors as secretary of state. >> we get these new revelations that there are thousands of new things we haven't yet seen. >> the republicans call it pay to play. why are they wrong about that? >> when republicans meet with their donors and supporters, they call it a meeting and when democrats do it, they call it a conflict. >> reporter: the state department said repeatedly the foundation donors did not get special favors when clinton was

they want to see more documentation including clinton's calendars, her ske schedules and 15,000 e-mails unearthed by the fbi. >> thank you. dan, joining us now a senior advisor to the romney/ryan campaign in 2012. let's start with the news this morning. the trump campaign announced to spend $10 million in nine states for the new ad called two americas. is it too little, too late? >> the message is right. this is any normal circumstance, you run against a candidate effectively the third term of obama and public life for three decades. this would be an effective message. late in the process, as you said. and in terms of the ad by about $10 million it's a fraction of what the clinton campaign spent over the last several months. this stage of the presidential campaign is like a world war ii battlefield. it's about mass deployment. mass tv buying. mass field ground operation.
7:12 am
>> also a debate about mass deportation in this campaign. and donald trump saying he's going to finally give this major speech on wednesday. >> right. >> supposedly clarifying. isn't this muddling bringing more attention to a divisive issue for someone trying to gain hispanic voters? >> absolutely. i don't think they believe they're actually going to reach a significant amount of latino voters but trying to reach white educated suburban middle class, upperdl they're suffering and republicans can't win without those voters. they try to calm them saying we're not as crazy and xenophobic are saying we are but just this uncertainty about the position where you show earlier, his surrogates on tv all over the weekend. no two of them said the same thing about the immigration plan. just speaks to the strains of not having a real presidential campaign. when you have that, you have surrogates, roll out policy, coordinate.
7:13 am
>> and then we see the surrogates step away in the first debate and not only is roger ales advising donald trump with the first debate but the trump campaign in a stark and marked contrast to the clinton campaign is not actually having any mock debates. fair to say that's unusual. >> yeah. i've been involved with debate prep, multiple presidential campaigns, primary presidential campaigns. the mock debate is so important not only to recreate point/counterpoint, it's exhausting. hillary clinton, she's pretty effective debater and if you look at her debate experience, near the end of the primary in 2008 when she was one on one with obama and then this last primary one on one with sanders. that's not the experience trump has had. he's used to being on stage for 90 minutes, two hours with 13, 14 candidates. if you look at the cumulative time on for those periods, 15, 20 minutes and even then, we were struck.
7:14 am
we were struck by how exhausted he would get. it's a stamina issue. you've got to prep. this is a much different kind of debate than the primaries. >> trump? >> and you could see on the show on television by the end, he was sort of worn down. even though he was on attack, it was a stamina issue. and that's when he's sharing a stage with 13, 14 people. this is one on one with 100 million people watching. >> it's a different campaign as ever. appreciate it. killing dwyane wade's cousin face murder charges for friday's deadly shooting on chicago's south side. dean reynolds where the man in charge said the systemauspects e prime example of the challenge we face end quote. good morning to you. >> reporter: two shooting
7:15 am
long criminal records and were known gang members. apparently, they were shooting on friday at the driver of a car. they missed him but they struck nakia aldridge after having registered one of her children at a local school. >> this reprehensible act of violence is an example of why we need to change h offenders. when will enough be enough? >> reporter: both brothers on parole for previous crimes each charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of nakia aldridge. darren, the younger brother, admitted to police he fired his gun multiple times. family members remember the 32 mother of four at a vigil on sunday.
7:16 am
>> reporter: chicago bulls star dwyane wade mourned his cousin's death on twitter. the city of chicago is hurting. we need more help and more hands on deck. wade had spoken at a chicago town hall on gun violence the day before aldridge was killed. >> we can start a conversation and hopefully, eventually, we can stop it. >> reporter: chicago alone has faced a startling number of shootings. 460 homicides and 2,800 shootings plagued the city this year. and statistics on track to surpass last year's totals. police superintendent johnson said his city recovered nearly 6,000 illegal handguns in 2016. enough for one every hour. >> the gun offenders that choose to do this time and time again, we have to hold them accountable. we need to put them in jail and

7:18 am
well, i'm here to tell you the rumors are true. >> few people would have begrudged charles osgood had he decided to anchor just a little bit longer. after all, his program is the most watched news show on sunday morning with the best ratings in decades but osgood said it's time. >> for years now, people, friends, and family ask me why i keep doing this considering my age. i am pushing 84. it's just that it's joy doing it. >> osgood is only the second person to anchor "cbs sunday morning" taking over for another cbs news legend, charles in 1994. >> we'll be in the good hands of charles osgood starting next sunday morning. >> i'm charles osgood and this is sunday morning. >> reporter: he won his audience over with his trademark bow ties, folksy style and way with words. >> much more satisfying with
7:19 am

good morning to our viewers in the west. it is monday august 29, 2016. there's more real news ahead including the presidential campaign with just ten weeks to both candidates with susan page of usa today. but first, here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> it was loud noises that prompted calls of an active shooter and put a lot of these passengers into a frenzy. donald trump's attempts to soften his language on immigration appears, and i emphasize appears, to be short-lived. >> still seeing the repercussions of what was truly a first, norah, two presidential candidates accusing each other of bigotry.
8:01 am
like a world war ii battlefield. it's about mass employment. encompassing none of it a little drip. >> the shooting suspects the police say have long criminal records and were known gang members. >> nicest guy you'd ever meet. >> absolutely. by far many people's favorite program here at cbs for a long period of time. >> this is the first time colin kaepernick has spoken out to social media pages. >> two pilots are due in court in the next couple of if found guilty, they could be fined and even face jail time. >> jason day hit absolutely the wrong putt. watch this. it's like putting into the bowl. how about this? how about training it? yes! ha-ha! i'm norah o'donnell, josh
8:02 am
and demarco morgan. charlie and gayle are off. a security scare at one of the country's largest airports. there were reports of a gunman, it took law enforcement about an hour to determine if it was a false alarm. no one was reported hurt. >> in the chaotic scene passenger who is evacuated during the panic needed to pass through security again before then boarding their flights. police say that loud noises led to those reports of an active shooter. they are still wng were. the faa had issued a partial ground stop during the chaos. you'll remember just two weeks ago reports of gunfire created a similar scare at new york's jfk airport. those reports also turned out to be false. federal investigators are trying to determine how the engine of a southwest plane blew apart in the air. flight 3472 was flying from new orleans to orlando saturday. its left engine suffered a dangerous mechanical problem mid
8:03 am
parts of the engine damaged the fuselage. forcing an emergency landing. safety expert sully sullenberger lost power from both engines shortly after taking off from new york's laguardia airport in 2009. he landed the plane on the hudson river. he says the southwest pilot had an advantage since the plane was reportedly flying at around 30,000 feet. >> being at cruise altitude gives them altitude and gives them time and gives them to work through this problem until it was successfully completed. and they would have had a lot of altitude that they could use to reach an airport even if the engine failure had required them to -- >> what a scare there. 104 passengers and crew were on the southwest flight. no one was hurt. newly revealed e-mails tell us more about the relationship between the clinton foundation and hillary clinton's state department. some of the exchanges involve
8:04 am
band, a long-time personal aide to president bill clinton and a top aide to hillary clinton, huma abedin. >> band asked could jude it rod abedin replied i'll ask. rockefeller foundation has donated between $10 million and $25 million to the clinton foundation. it's unclear who started that conversation or if the request was granted. the e-mails were released through a public records lsu united. donald trump tweeted last night that he'll give a long expected immigration speech on wednesday. his earlier tweet on the death of nykea aldridge, cousin of nba star dwyane wade got a lot of negative attention. trump wrote, quote, dwyane wade's cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in chicago. just what i have been saying. african-americans will vote trump. the response on twitter was
8:05 am
disrespectful. on "face the nation" sunday trump's campaign manager focused on his second tweet. >> i think you have to look at both tweets. he expresses his condolences and he says, and he reminds everybody he's been trying to make the case that the increase in random crime and senseless murders, the poverty, the joblessness, the homelessness in some of our major cities is unacceptable to all of us. >> in a number of instances whether shooting, paris attacks and now this one, his first instinct is to talk about himself, policies to see tragedies a validation of what he's been saying. >> i know the media live on twitter, but most americans see what he does on a weekly basis, which is he gives policy position speeches. >> on saturday trump will answer questions at an african-american church in detroit.
8:06 am
is covering her tenth presidential campaign. good morning. >> good morning. >> it's on the front page of "usa today" trump team on defensive after wade tweet. does that hurt his outreach to african-americans? >> i think it hurts not his outreach to african-americans as much as his outreach to white suburban voters which i think is the real target of some of these recent speeches he's given. i was just outside in pennsylvania talking to those voters. insensitive or intolerant is a big issue. >> he's not going to get a significant share of the african-american vote. >> he won't get double digits. >> but the polling does show that college-educated suburban whites have fallen from his campaign. that should be the base of the republican party. >> this is the biggest swing group in this election. mitt romney won these voters by 14 percentage points just four years ago. now hillary clinton leads among them. that is the biggest swing we've seen of any major demographic group and it may be the group
8:07 am
fall. trump's speech on wednesday, how has the recent confusion over his policy on illegal immigration affected his campaign? >> well, i think it's been a diversion. you know, this is not the issue that he wants to be talking about if he's reaching out to vote who are are in the middle who might be undecided. and i think it's created some problems with his core supporters, the sense that he's moving away from the idea of deporting the 11 million or 12 million people who are here illegally. so i think the campaign hopes to put this controversy, this confusion to rest in the speech >> i don't know, it is just 71 days to the election, so it is pretty late in the day to be explaining yourself on the issue that launched your candidacy 14 months ago. >> even, susan, as he was looking to stay on message with regard to the issues facing hillary clinton and the clinton foundation, if we looked into the clinton campaign's approach and really response, the candidate herself said there's a lot of smoke here, but there's
8:08 am
now? >> so far we don't know of anything that's illegal. we don't know even of anything that's unusual. these kind of outreaches are pretty customary for candidates running for office. but i think it does look unsavory to a lot of american voters. i think it's one of the things that makes americans suspicious of politics and politicians. it's one reason that bernie sanders did so well against hillary clinton, the sense this coziness of the powerful. >> and they've said they'll shut the foundation down if she wins. people are suggesting t that -- >> they won't shut it down. >> they'll step away, but in stepping away people suggest then you're acknowledging to a degree that there's an issue here. >> and if it was unacceptable, it was unacceptable as president to have bill clinton out there fund raising for the foundation, why not unacceptable when she was secretary of state? i think that's a fair question. >> the trump campaign announcing a $10 million buy in nine states, eight of those nine states mitt romney lost in the
8:09 am
>> this is exactly the message that republicans have been hoping to hear from donald trump from the beginning. it's a message of change versus more of the same. in the ad it says things are going badly, and they'll get worse with a president clinton. that is a pretty powerful message with an electorate. we know two of three americans say the country is going in the wrong direction, it's gotten off track. but donald trump has been unable to capitalize on those feelings because he's been made the issue statement after another has raised questions about his own qualifications and suitability for the office. >> and, i mean, this is your tenth presidential campaign. an ad like this is released, wouldn't the speech that's coming up have -- be on the same message as the ad that was just released? sort of hammering home a single message to try and get full coverage on that, and yet he's speaking about immigration, the ad's about the economy, is there some dissidence here? >> that is not what a
8:10 am
running. this is an ad that could have been put out months ago, running all summer to have maximum effect on an electorate. early voting starts in just a couple weeks. >> susan page of "usa today," thank you. the world's top maker of fitness trackers wants an even bigger piece of the market. the co-founder and ceo of fitbit will be right here in studio 57 with a big announcement. that's straight ahead.mid 90s s we had a really nice weekend. saturday even felt cool with highs at 90 der this morning. ........... with warm sunshine... it'll be hotter for kids back to school today. ...... highs in the low 100s. it's 7:26 ...
