7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." as you wake up in the west, president obama is meeting right now with cuban president raoul castro in new york, following yesterday's meeting with russian president vladimir putin, clashing over syria and ukraine. >> they sharply disagree with how to deal with isis and syria's embattled president. margaret brennan was there for both speeches. >> reporter: good morning. the two leaders squared off for around an hour and a half. no sign of a breakthrough, but an offer to make common cause from vladimir putin, to end the syrian war and fight isis. a stiff handshake kicked off their first meeting in more than two years, after both presidents blamed each other for the brutal war in syria and outlined two
7:04 am
different plans to stop it. putin said it would be an enormous mistake not to join forces with the serial regime led by assad, while president obama blamed assad's own brutality for feeding extremists like isis. >> he drops barrel bombs to massacre innocent children. >> reporter: mr. obama said he is willing to work with russia and iran, but making that happen seems next to impossible, since tehran and moscow support assad, who the u.s. blames for the rise of isis and a war that killed more than 250,000 people. u.s. officials said monday's meeting tested how far putin will go to protect assad. in an interview with charlie rose on "60 minutes," putin gave an elusive answer. >> are you prepared to put combat troops on the ground on syria if necessary to defeat isis?
7:05 am
>> translator: russia will not participate in any troop operations in the territory of syria or in any other states. well, at least they don't plan on it right now. >> reporter: both presidents putin and obama share a common fear. neither want isis to seize control of syria. that led to a shift in u.s. policy, saying assad can stay in power short term but ultimately must exit to end the conflict. >> we must recognize there cannot be, after so much bloodshed, so much carnage, a return to the pre-war status quo. >> reporter: putin said their discussions with constructive and open, which is a diplomatic way to say "we fundamentally disagree." gayle? >> margaret, thank you. a report coming out this morning highlights the flood of isis recruits. nearly 30,000 people from more than 100 countries have joined
7:06 am
isis in syria and iraq since 2011. that's according to the "new york times." more than 250 of them are americans. holly williams is in gazientep in turkey, along the syrian border, where many of those recruits entered sear i can't. holly, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. turkey has been accused of turning a blind eye to thousands of foreign fighters crossing its border into syria. turkish officials told us they're now cracking down. but that it's impossible to stop the flow of islamic extreme i was the to groups like isis. the road to the so-called islamic state runs through istanbul, turkey's biggest city is just a bus ride away from this syrian border, where those who join isis are smuggled into the war zone. turkey has a blacklist of 16,000
7:07 am
names put together with help from intelligence officials from the u.s., europe, and other countries. if one of the people on that blacklist tries to enter turkey, they're stopped and imported. but it's not enough. a senior adviser to turkey's prime minister told us foreign fighters are still slipping through the net. it's impossible to catch everyone. >> definitely. >> reporter: some are going to make it through. >> yes. >> reporter: these three teenaged girls from britain crossed into syria in february. but this security video showing them in a turkish bus station was only discovered after they had already joined isis. plainclothes turkish police officers now have this bus station under 24-hour surveillance, and they're profiling travelers. >> from the way they are acting, from the way they are speaking,
7:08 am
so it's quite a detailed process. >> reporter: they told us they caught over 120 suspected foreign fighters at this bus station alone in the last five months, including several from north america. here in southern turkey, in another attempt to stop islamic extremists from crossing into isis territory, the turkish government has begun building a concrete wall along part of its 500-mile-long border with syria. charlie? >> holly williams in turkey, thanks. this morning u.s. air strikes are being carried out over northern afghanistan, targeting taliban fighters who advanced into the center of kunduz. the city is a key transportation hub. monday, forces came under fire from insurgents. hundreds of taliban fighters stormed the city and took over a hospital and a prison. afghan officials say much of the city fell to the taliban.
7:09 am
this is the first time they've captured a major urban area since 2001. most of the american troops in afghanistan withdrew last year. a new tropical storm system could come next week. joaquin has strengthened to a tropical storm last night. forecasters are watching its potential tracks. joaquin could hit the u.s. in four days, impacting areas from north carolina to new york city. parts of florida are drying out after a day of heavy rain. drivers in the city of destin saw floodwaters as high as 3 feet. as many as 8 inches of rain fell in some areas. this morning the f.a.a. is investigating a flight that made an emergency landing last year after a serious hydraulic failure. an aer lingus jet left for ireland, looping back to jfk airport after 15 minutes after
7:10 am
takeoff. the pilot noticed a problem with the landing gear. >> we've noticed a problem with the hydraulic system. we would like you to inform kennedy that we have lost hydraulic fluids. >> he sounds so calm there. the plane's rear brakes overheated when it touched down and caused a small fire. firefighters were already ready on the runway. >> it looks like a sci-fi movie. the actual touchdown itself was pretty bumpy. we could see 15 or 20 fire trucks right on the runway immediately, ready to drive up. they started spraying us like almost immediately. >> nobody was hurt and everybody got off the plane safely. this morning, some analysts are calling donald trump's tax plan unrealistic and predictable. the billionaire presidential candidate claimed on monday that wealthy taxpayers like him will
7:11 am
end up paying more. >> we're taking away deductions. and that's one of the reasons we're able to lower it. >> trump's plan creates a zero percent tax bracket for low earners. trump says cutting the corporate rate will help companies bring billions in overseas profits back to the u.s. "the economist" calls the plan "fantasy and goodtwaddle." everyone right now is googling the word "twaddle." >> a british term. this morning house majority leader kevin mccarthy is officially in the race to replace john boehner has house speaker. he writes, "i am running to be your speaker because i know that the people's house works best when the leadership you elect listens to members and respects
7:12 am
the legislative process that is entrusted to committees." congressman mccarthy is on capitol hill this morning. good morning. >> good morning, thanks for having me. >> a pleasure to have you. the question i think many people want to know is how will you be different than john boehner. and talking about listening to members, does that suggest that john boehner was not listening to members? >> john is a good and decent man who served this country very well. but one thing the speaker does is set the culture. every culture changes. this will be a generational change. i'm concerned about what i see in washington. people are very concerned about power in institutions more so than changing the lives of everyday americans. that's what fundamentally has to change, getting everybody involved. a lot of people think being speaker is like a team manager. i view it as a team captain. i'm part of team. let everybody engage, bottom up. the more people engage, the more
7:13 am
you'll get a better outcome and solution. >> won't some of the same lawmakers who challenged speaker boehner challenge you? >> they very well could. but a lot of them i've worked with, some of them are supporting me. look, this is not going to be easy. but what fejundamentally has to change when you go across this country, we want to make sure that people once again believe that this is their government, that they are in charge, that we are there to serve them. that won't happen overnight and it won't be easy. but that's my mission. >> president obama has said he will reach out immediately to the next speaker. what is your relationship to the president, congressman, and do you hope to meet with him on a regular bases if you do in fact get this job? >> i hope to meet with everybody on a regular bases, from the president down to everybody in congress and of course the american people. i will work with anybody that's willing to work. we have big problems in this country. and the only way we're going to get it involved is to work together and solve the problems. >> i understand that, but what
7:14 am
is your relationship with the president right now? >> i have a good relationship with the president. i've met him many times. we've been in a few meetings. but as you know, i have not been speaker, so we have never sat down to negotiate or anything like that. but i have a relationship with him. >> the question also is about who will be the number two and number three people in the house who are in the republican leadership. are you supporting any of the candidates who are running for those two top positions? >> no, i always think it's healthy that individuals go out and compete on their own, be able to earn those seats on their own, because whoever wins a leader or whip position, they have to carry out that position in their own name and be able to do it. i think it's healthy for a conference that people don't influence it, that individuals get to sit down, see what the policies and ideas are, and cast that vote of how they best serve the congress. >> some in your party are demanding to shut down the government over planned parenthood funding.
7:15 am
would you approve shutting down the government, is that fight important, to block funding for planned parenthood? >> look, i don't believe tax dollars should be going to planned parenthood. we're going to set up a select committee to get to the bottom of what's going on there. anyone who has watched those videos knows there is a concern and a problem and we've got to get to the problem of that. national right to life asked us not to shut the government down because it will even set back the pro-life movement. i think the best thing going forward is if we're able to move but also get to the problem of what we're finding in these videos. >> do you have enough votes, do you think, to secure the nomination? >> i think we'll be successful. >> okay. >> but here is the point that john boehner raised in an interview with john dickerson, that there were people who knew they could not win on a vote yet continued to take a hard line
7:16 am
position what was destructive in the end. >> and he calls them false prophets. >> and he calls them false prophets. can you avoid that, can you persuade the most conservative members of your party, that you can persuade them, when it is an unachievable result, not to fight forever? >> look, i have a relationship with everyone in this congress. the most important thing is to be able to listen to them. it's also important that we have the wisdom to listen to the american public but the courage to lead at the end. look, it's going to take work, time, and trust. so it won't happen overnight. but watch our mission and watch our goal and watch that we're successful in the end. >> congressman mccarthy, good to have you on this morning. thanks for joining us. a house committee is just getting underway where planned parenthood's president will defend her organization

7:36 am
norah. >> all right. michelle, thank you. there is new fallout from the emissions cheating scandal at volkswagon. this year the auto maker overtook toyota as the world's largest car maker by sales. it happened three years ahead of the company's target, but investors punished volkswagon's stock after the company lied about emissions data. "cbs news" financial contributor mellody hobson is with us this morning. vw is facing investigations, class action lawsuits and massive fines, can they, how do they survive this? >> well, i think they can, even though this issue has taken a huge toll on the company already. the company has lost $25 billion in market value t. stock is down over 35%. they've set aside $7 billion already for legal costs and fines and put that in perspective, last year, they made $12 become. so they're wiping out a lot of their earnings, but if you look at some of the precedents like
7:37 am
toyota and the issue they had with unintended acceleration, and general motors and the issue they had with the faulty ignition switch. those companies got through it. >> but the question is, have they selected the right kind of leadership to get them through it? >> that's the huge question. we don't know yet. the leader, the new leader is from porsche. he had a great record, but this is a company in crisis. and everyone doesn't deal with crisis well and they have to do a lot right. now, this is not a company that will go away. but they're placed at the top of the auto food chain is definitely in jeopardy. >> how has the competition been reacting to the scandal? >> there is so interesting. so one i think the competition is going to pounce on some of the vw talent, for sure. so they'll probably see some accidents of some really important people. but we know, for example, if you go on twitter and you search #volkswagonscandal, a renault ad
7:38 am
pops up. they're taking advantage of this moment of weakness for volkswagon to try to market itself. it makes a lot of sense, even though some might feel it's a pretty aggressive move. >> now the president of the company before he stepped down said, look, i wasn't aware of wrongdoing, i will step down anyway. what is the reaction from the troops to say i wasn't aware of it? >> here's the issue with him. the culture ought volkswagon where the ceo is supposedly all knowle. people say he is dammed if he knows, he is dammed if he doesn't. if he knows, obviously, that's horrible. and this will be more than a couple rogue people inside of the company. if he doesn't know, they say culturally that means his eye was off the ball. so this is not a good story for him either way. it will be interesting to see what happens with the criminal investigations launched. in germany, can you not indict a company, you can only indict individuals. >> messages, emissions standards are real. they're there for a real. yeah. >> we don't want anything to happen to the vw bug.
7:39 am

8:31 am
foundation fellows t. genius grants come with a stipend of $625 over five years with no strings attached. notable recipients this year include journalist ta-nehiki coates and lin-manual miranda. this is one of the biggest topics at the general assembly in new york. monday president obama and putin met at the united nations. the united states and russia sharply disagree over how long syrian president bashar al-assad should stay in power. there are an increasing number of people going to join isis, they include hundreds of thousands of refugees are fleeing syria and many are traveling to europe. this influx overwhelmed european leaders. british prime minister david cameron is here for his only appearance on united states television during the general
8:32 am
assembly. mr. prime minister, great to be here with us. >> glad to be with you. >> you said bashar al-assad is a war criminal and should be prosecuted. >> he has done appalling things, massacred hundreds of thousands of his own citizens, millions have fled. so in my view he has broken international law. he has to go. i though there are some people thinking, well, look, isil is even worse than assad, shouldn't we somehow cut a deal with assad to team up and take on isil? it sounds enticeing. even if you thought it was the right. to do, which it isn't, it wouldn't work. >> you were saying assad first before you continue the attack? >> you need to do both. >> we need a syria free of isim and assad t. point i'm making is assad is one of the recruiting sergeants for isil. because of what he's done to his people. >> that is one of the reasons why people are flocking to isil to fight isil. so that method that some
8:33 am
wouldn't work. you need a syria free of both. >> do you believe president putin when he says he is involved in syria because he wants to help take out isil? >> i think putin understands that islamist extremists, terrorism is against russia's interest just as it's against america's interests or britain's interest. he knows that's a threat for him. but he has been up to now willing to work with assad. we need to convince him that actually the only way you will have a syria free of isil is to have a replacement of assad and that's what we need these intensive talks and discussion about. the meeting between obama and putin last night was important. we need much more of that to try to build some sort of shared understanding. that's why i plet the iranian president yesterday. you have to be prepared to work with russia and iran in the battle in isis and syria. >> i will work with everybody to build a syria free of assad and
8:34 am
isil. that's why, for instance, no british prime minister met the iranian president for 35 years until our meeting last year. i met him again yesterday. now, of course, we're miles apart at the moment. but we need to try to build that understanding, that fundamentally we'll never have a secure syria until both those things are eradicated. >> what do you think about president putin? here in this country, politician versus described him as a gangster, an articulate thug. what do you think of him as a leader and a person? ? >> i built a relationship with him not based on any niavety. he is a strong russian nationalist. he's very proud of what russia is and does and stands for. he wants to be seen e taken seriously on the world stage and listened to. >> that doesn't mean we have to agree with him. what he's done in ukraine i think is wrong. britain led the move to put
8:35 am
sanctions on russia. that's really fundamentally where putin comes from. >> you had conversations with him? >> i had conversations -- >> while are you here? >> he only had seven hours in the country. he's gone, back to russia i think. i'm sure i will have conversations later with him. in the end, how far apart with the iranians and russians, those two countries have an influence on what happens in syria. we need to convince them that a new syria with a different leader wouldn't necessarily be against their interests, it would rep to get rid of isil. >> but the united states position is we understand how bad assad is. but we're prepared to wait for some transition in order to get at isis now. they're not demanding he be immediately deposed. >> what america is saying, which i agree with is you need a transition. what's clear about. that at the end of that, assad
8:36 am
cannot be the head of syria. it wouldn't work because you kould would not be able to defeat isil if that guy is still running the country. >> everybody agrees with that. even putin is not opposed to a transition at some point. >> so far the problem has been that russia and iran have not been prepared to contemplate the ends state of a syria without assad and that's what we need to make -- >> some people say the problem is the united states and britain and other western allies have not done enough to support whatever moderates that were, that were willing to go against assad until now t. united states admitted its failure to have moderates. it had been a military failure. >> i think that is a fair criticism. we did do work and britain did work to train moderate opposition forces, but we haven't trained enough. they haven't been successful enough. so they aren't a big enough presence. >> isis is wrong while you
8:37 am
didn't? >> isis has grown isis grew because of assad's brutality against his people. two, because the iraqi government wasn't looking after sun sunnis and kurds. three is crucial, right around the world we see this global islamic extremist moveth. yes, we have to sort of syria and iraq. we have to take on this ideology that is poisoning the minds of people sitting in, you know, homes in my country and your countries all over europe. because you don't go after the extremist mindset. it will be another country with another problem. >> the secretary of state said on another television program this morning as i understand it, that britain was, in part, responsible for the united states' decision not to strike. because you couldn't produce a vote in the house in parliament and that's the reason that there
8:38 am
was no strike and that syria was able to violate the red line. >> this was to do with the issue of chemical weapons. where i argued that we should strike in respect to the use of chemical weapons because we've had these agreements and your government said no, my parliament said no, which i deeply regret. i think it was a bad decision. i'm the democrat. i have to obey your parliament. >> the point is they said that itself the reason there was no attack because they've looked at britain and there was no possibility -- >> to be fair to both of us, since then, a large quantity of chemical weapons have been given up, but there is still use of chemical weapons by the regime, yet another reminder we shouldn't be cutting a deal with assad. >> the region took the fact that there was no red line response as a sign of iraqiness by the west. i suggest the saudi government brought that. the government brought that. >> you can now jump forward where you can see britain and america taking on isil in iraq.
8:39 am
we've done 300 strikes ours in iraq. obviously, america with other allies in syria. >> where is the grounds troops coming from? >> look, grounds troops are necessary. but they shouldn't be, in my view, american or british ground troops. in iraq, it should be iraqi ground troops. >> in syria they include? >> what we need in syria, a syrian government not led by assad and can then be a partner in defeating isil. i am repeating myself, it has to be a syrian government. >> it's more difficult now because the russians are having a more embedded presence in syria andened providing more supplies in support of assad, so it's more difficult? >> that may not be the case if you consider, as i do, the reasons the russians put those resources in because they felt assad was on the brink of falling. >> he did not say that to me in an interview a week ago. >> it was an excellent and very clear interview to get that much
8:40 am
time with putin to put those questions, it's very valuable. >> you may say that. >> i this i the truth is, that's why the truth went in, that means russia is invested in the future of syria. what we have to do is convince them it will be a pretty poor investment unless there is a transition of the government away from assad. in the end, the syrian people, those 12 million people who left their homes, they are not going back to their homes if the butcher is in charge of the countries. >> you think you will have luck convincing putin of that? our president spent 90 minutes with him yesterday. all reports are it didn't go that well. >> if you were to ask me, is this the most difficult problem that president obama and i face? absolutely, yes. we are four years into this. so many people have died. so many people left their country it doesn't mean we give up, nor does it mean you go for a phony solution of thinking you can team up with assad. you have to stick to the right

path no matter how long it takes. >> go ahead. >> my question about syria, has it, more about isis. has it been a failure on the part of the west that they have not had an urgent united demand of coalition to defeat isis? >> i think we have a coalition, that coalition will be meeting this morning here in, no, you know, to step up the campaign against isil. but we shouldn't talk ourselves. >> they need to step up the campaign. >> look at iraq. if iraq, isil has lost huge amounts of the territory it was holding because of the us airstrikes, the british airstrikes. we have taken quite comprehensive action in iraq. more action has been taken in syria. britain is playing her part as a major nato player. for instance, we have taken out isis terrorists that threaten my country and frankly threaten your country t. drone strike britain carried out the other day, british drones over syria, actually, you know, effectively
8:42 am
stopped two terrorists who were plotting against the u.s. as well as the u.k. evidence of how strong our special relationship is and how it works for the benefit of both our countries and people. >> we have the worst, the largest migration in europe since world war ii. some 4 pll. are you concerned about and britain has said they're going to take how many? 20,000? >> we are taking 20,000 state straight from the refugee camps. the reason we have so many european partners, if you keep saying we are going to spread people out once they got to europe. you are actually encouraging people to make the journey. we said britain is the most generous do nator to the syrian refugee camps after the united states. we spent ten times more than some of the european countries our size. we say concentrate on the region. peep help keep them in the region. work with the camps, fund the world food program. we will take some people directly from the camps. we won't take the people who
8:43 am
arrive on the continent of europe. >> why? >> it's criticism -- >> i think if you are not careful, you start encouraging people to make that lethal journey. we seen people getting into these desperate unsafe dinkies on a turkish beach t. children and families die. we want to stop people taking that journey. >> there was some criticism in the beginning 'countries were slow to step up with the migrant crisis. was eight turning point when we saw the picture of the little boy who drowned on the beach? >> i think to be fair to britain, ever since it started four years ago, along side the united states, we have been the second most donor to the syrian refugee crisis. 12 million syrian people have been made homeless by bashar al-assad. there is a huge billions left in the region. we should not be encouraging those people to make the journey. we said help the jordanian
8:44 am
government. help the lebanese government. we have done that from day one. we didn't wake up to the problems of the syrian refugee crisis when that total picture came out. we had already been -- one of the reasons we're able to do this is britain made the difficult decision under my leadership to spend 4.7% on overseas aid. an unpopular decision. frankly, it has allowed us to not just be generous, but also to be swift. we are often the fastest to respond to these global crisis. we don't have to scramble around looking for it. >> have you been following the political race in this country? and are you prepared to work with a president donald trump. have you and your team given that a thought? >> i haven't thought of it. it's a fantastic race. >> we will work, i will work with whoever the american people elect as president and -- >> has your party become the
8:45 am
centrist party? >> we have an opportunity, in winning an election and mandate and the other party headed offer into the hills a bit. we have an opportunity whoever your politics in the past, if you want strong help and a strong economy and strong defense, we're the team for you. >> it's a pleasure to have,,
