florida and the southeast are preparing for the dangerous hurricane now slamming the caribbean. matthew is a deadly category 4 hurricane. it just made landfall this morning in haiti. if the storm continues on its current path, matthew could hug the east coast or make a direct hit. north carolina and florida have already declared states of emergency. >> torrential rain and winds of up to 145 miles an hour are lashing haiti. roads have been flooded there and one man was killed when a wave crashed right through his home. in the dominican republic, the deluge dropped several inches of rain forcing cars to drive through floodwater. in cuba, people along the eastern coast have been urged to go to higher ground. >> donald trump is making no apologies for using the tax code to his benefit after claiming nearly a billion dollars in losses in 1995. trump said he, quote, brilliantly used those laws that could have allowed him to avoid
8:03 am
income taxes. speaking in pueblo, colorado, he blamed the recession in 1990 and '91 for his nearly $916 million business loss. >> the conditions facing real estate developers in that early '90 period were almost as bad as the great depression of 1929 and far worse than the great recession of 2008. some of the biggest and strongest people and companies went absolutely bankrupt. which i never are you proud of me? would have loved to have used that card, but i just didn't want to do it. >> now, take a look at the bureau of labor statistics. they say that the early '90s recession was milder than other downturns since world war ii. trump didn't declare bankruptcy in 1995, but four out of the six times his company filed bankruptcies were in 1991 and

>> donald trump says his administration would focus on mental health. he spoke yesterday in an event hosted by veterans who support his campaign. >> when you talk about the mental health problems, when people come back from war and combat and they see things that maybe a lot of the folks in this room have seen many times over and you're strong and you can handle it, but a lot of people can't handle it and they see horror stories, they see events that you couldn't see in a movie, nobody would believe it, we need a medical. >> vice president joe biden criticized trump saying he suggested that some troops are not as strong as those who don't have ptsd. >> he points out to the veterans room and says, and you're strong, you can handle it. but a lot of people can't handle it. where in the hell is he from? >> now retired general michael

8:07 am
attacked alicia machado, the former miss universe, is he going to defend the 3:00 a.m. twitter rants? is he going to defend donald trump's comments about veterans or he's proud he didn't pay taxes for nearly two decades. this is usually a test to see if the candidates are prepared to serve as president. i think both of them are regarded as pretty accomplished public servants. the real question is is mike pence going to defend donald >> is that the goal, to put mike pence on the defensive to defend donald trump's record? >> the goal is to talk about the difference that senator kaine and secretary clinton want to make in people's lives. that's been our goal for all of these debates. that's when we do best as a campaign, because secretary clinton and senator kaine actually have real plans that are going to make a real difference in people's lives. but i think the dynamics of the race are very special and it is going to be interesting to see if mike pence is willing to
8:08 am
>> how would secretary clinton, if she becomes president, change the affordable care act? because as you know, former president clinton had something to say about it yesterday in terms of people that were not exactly -- as well as they thought they might. >> well, i -- i'm sorry, i thought you were going to play a clip there. really glad you asked that question because -- >> i would if i had one. >> no, it is a really important issue that affects a lot of voters. look, the important thing is that 20 million americans have health insurance today because of the affordable care act. it made a tremendous difference in a lot of people's lives. but we need to do more to lower premiums and in particular the price of prescription drugs is rising way too fast. we have seen these companies, you know, abusing their patents to jack up costs for life saving cancer drugs and the like. so secretary clinton and senator
8:09 am
drug prices down, make sure families can afford them and finally do something about these premium increases. >> does secretary clinton agree with her husband, former president bill clinton, that obamacare is a, quote, crazy system that hurts small businesses? >> well, what he was referring to was the health care system both as it used to be, and then sometimes when happens in some of the markets, you know, where skews the cost, this is exactly why we got to do something about premium increases, but i assume also he was including in that prescription drug prices. >> can i ask you quickly about the latest polls. we see that secretary clinton is up in florida, north carolina, pennsylvania, virginia, but losing to donald trump in ohio. can she win the presidency without ohio? >> look, there are many paths to
8:10 am
absolutely essential for her to become president? no, it is not. but that's completely separate from the fact that we are working as hard as we can to win ohio. i ran secretary clinton's ohio campaign in 2008 and my parents live there. it is near and dear to my heart. i know we can win it and we're working very hard to do that. >> all right. 30 plus days and counting. thank you very much, robbie mook, we'll see you later on, i'm sure. cbs news will begin live coverage of the vice presidential debate at 6:00 pacific time. elaine moderating this evening. you can watch on cbsnews.com, on our app and on devices like roku, apple tv and amazon fire. lots of options. no excuse not to see this debate. >> that's right. it will be everywhere. good point, gayle. first on "cbs this morning," forbes reveals the new list of the richest americans. ahead, find out which big names dropped down a spot for first time in 15 years.
