7:43 am
successful, i vng a lot to offer. >> in a weekend interview, hillary clinton said the only way to know whether donald trump is really successful is if he reveals his tax returns.

"you said at that net worth goes up and down based upon your own feelings?" "yes, even me own feelings as to where the world is going, and that can change rapidly from day to day." in the deposition, the attorney presented estimates of his net worth by two banks where trump had applied for lines of credit. both concluded trump was worth about one-third of the $3.5 billion he claimed in 2005. trump said the numbers were wrong, and the banks did not do an exhaustive search of his assets on. the campaign trail, trump boast this he's not a politician -- boasts that he's not a politician. >> i've never done this before. i've been a politician forrer it months. these guys have been politicians for 30 years in some cases, right. >> reporter: under oath, he said he spends his business like anything.

8:15 am
attention to. so you can look at the total amount of grams and the percent daily value that you're getting, and you don't want to exceed 100%. >> i think the idea of added sugar, for moms and juice, what is natural sugar and what is added. so sugar is a carbohydrate that is a form of energy your body uses. natural and added sugars are the same, but natural ones come from things like fruits and dairy. with added sugars, you're just getting calories. more than two thirds of americans want to drop their added sugar amount, but we're still getting way more than we should. it should be less than 10% of your total daily calories. most of us get over 13%. >> i want to go back to charlie. i'm still confused. it says total fat, 8 g, 10%. so are we supposed to have 10%

8:38 am
i hold it pretty strongly. >> one of the debates going on now is over guns. donald trump has changed his position but just received the endorsement of the national rifle association. he says we should end gun-free zones in schools. you've done a lot in terms of guns in colorado. explain what you talk about in the book. >> in so many ways we tried to get the facts and listen. trying to persuade someone, telling them often what you think makes things worse. by asking questions, things like universal background checks, we got the facts. in 2012, we got half the gun purchases, 38 people convicted of homicide tried to buy a gun, and we stopped them. 133 convicted of sexual assault tried to buy a gun. 1,300 people convicted of felony assault. universal background checks work. you keep guns out of the hand of dangerous people. that shouldn't be partisan. that should be something we can all agree to.

>> there's a lot of gun owners and second amendment supporters in colorado. how do they respond to the gun control measures that you signed into state law. >> many were unhappy. especially the magazine one. universal background checks is -- people can accept it more easily. >> so you want to be vp because malcolm glad dps-- gladwell says, "read and reflect on how thoughtful and charming john hickenlooper is and hope to god he runs for president one day," and that your name is being floated as a vp candidate. what say you? >> i have the greatest job in the world. >> everybody says that. >> i think that list is very long, and i'm toward the bottom. that's not a point of contician or really discussion. i look at -- malcolm is a brilliant writer and generous spirit to write such a nice thing. >> he deeply appreciates the dinner you took him to. in a sentence, what ought this
