7:06 am
>> reporter: president obama obama warned trump to keep the information to himself. >> if they want to be president, they got to start acting like president. >> reporter: now, as for that video, trump has been talking about for a couple of days, this morning, he admitted he was mistaken. here is what he tweeted. the plane i saw on television was the hostage plane in geneva, not the plane carrying $400 million in cash going to iran. so maybe that tweet will clear things up. >> dean, thank you. meanwhile, hillary clinton is focused on attacking donald trump's business record. her week long tour of small businesses in battleground states has taken her from pennsylvania, ohio, colorado and nevada. nancy cordes shows how us how clinton wants to show how trump makes his products overseas. >> reporter: clinton hasn't been saying much about trump's nightmare week, because there is a growing number of republican whose are willing to do that for

7:08 am
part to college educated white voters. they favor clinton over trump by five points. senate democratic leader, harry reid, campaigned with clinton in nevada, and said gop turmoil could make it easier for his party to retake the senate. >> senator reid, if you were faced with this on the democratic side, what would you do, withdraw your endorsement? >> he is the nominee of the republican party. they're stuck with him. no way out. >> reporter: the reason, he says, there is no way out, gop leaders know that if they signal that they know longer support trump, a slice of the republican electorate will simply stay home. that would lead to gop losses in congress and elsewhere, that would take years, norah, to cov recover from. >> twaen wiim kaine will be camg in wisconsin, and we talked to
7:09 am
him in virginia, we talked to him about the controversy that donald trump says it is a ransom for u.s. hostages. >> if you were vice-president, would you allow a plane full of money to land in iran on the same day that four u.s. hostages are freed? >> you know, norah, here is the thing. congress was briefed on this months ago. i'm on these committees and aware of it. iran had a size able legal claim against the united states that has been pending in international law for a very long time. there was a settlement of that claim. a settlement where the u.s. agreed to pay a fraction of the claim. and yes, the u.s. then paid that claim. zinds th >> i understand that. but let's talk about the perception, on the very same day with a plane with $400 million with foreign currency, is that ransom? >> perception is one thing. reality matters more. we got hostages home. we took a legal claim that was a legit claim and bargained it
7:10 am
down to a fraction and paid the claim off. >> so as vice-president, would you agree with that same deal, you would let it happen. >> i would negotiate any legal claim and try to get the best deal we could, and try to get american hostages home. >> on thursday, donald trump has doubled down and said he saw money pouring off of a plane in iran, and that the iranian government released it to embarrass the united states. >> i have no idea what he is thinking about. he might be thinking about iran-contra from 35 years ago or something like this. he recently criticized me sag i was a bad governor of new jersey. >> tom kaine. >> 26 years ago. i mean, so i -- it hurt my feelings, until i realized, wait a minute, i wasn't governor of new jersey. he was confusing it with a situation two or three decades ago. maybe that's what he is doing with this bogus video claim. >> you think donald trump is confused. >> i absolutely think he is
7:11 am
confused. >> john heilemann, executive producer of the circus, good morning, john. >> good morning. >> you've got lots to talk about. >> happy friday. >> you hear it. they're saying trump is confused. >> yes, that's a mild version of what he thinks, but yeah. >> what do you think signal from clinton campaign. >> they have a double frame on donald trump. the first is that he is temperamentally, intellectually, and the other is he is a jerk. that's one line. which is, kind of mild version of this guy really shouldn't be sitting in the oval office. >> paul manafort was sitting right where you were, and he said listen, the campaign is not in chaos, the dropping numbers are something that can be expected. we have less than 100 days, we're in good shape. the republicans that are defecting, he said, were people that weren't going to endorse him any way. >> right. >> so do you think the -- they seem to be oblivious to the fact that everyone outside the bubble --
7:12 am
>> i don't think they're in the least bit in oblivian -- >> they could say we're concerned, john. they could say that. >> you never hear that from campaigns. you just don't. it is not what they're paid to do. it is the case right now that there is polling now that has donald trump, not just that according to that poll yesterday, 15 point gaffp. 39, 40, thought was the floor. 33 is a catastrophe. >> well, look, the battles aren't over. we have a shy of 100 dice aays. his problem right now is that
7:13 am
this bounce that she has gotten, which coincides with maybe the worst week for him in the campaign, comes now at the beginning of august, we're about to head into three weeks of preliminary pic olympic coverage. until we get to mid september, so the debates will be huge, but this means, this is going to be i think these numbers will lock in now for a little while, and that, not only is a problem for trump in the long run, but it contributing to this extraordinary sense of panic in the party. >> they're not saying it publically, are they saying it privately from people you know? >> i think everybody in the trump campaign is incredibly concerned. >> the candidate himself also seems to perhaps be signal this by saying a few times now, the election is rigged. president obama yesterday spoke to it. do you think, i mean, that's quite a flag to plant. do you think he believes that, or is that the givings of the makings of an excuse. >> i've traveled to difficult to
7:14 am
explore places. i don't know what goes on inside his head. everyday, we have something happens that it is unprecedented, right. the notion that the nominee of a major political party would be spinning his defeat in advance, and suggesting that basically american democracy is broken and crooked in some way, never seen that before. i think it is really quite troubling. >> a lot of that never seen that before. >> thank you, john heilemann. president obama's responding for the first time, questions about the controversial $400 million cash payment to iran. it was one of the issues that came up at his news conference yesterday at the pentagon. the president also discussed america's new air strikes against isis and libya. major garrett is at the white house, with the president's push back against donald trump and other critics. good morning. >> reporter: president obama called talk of ransom paid to iran for u.s. hostages a transfer that was carried out in big bundles of non-u.s. currency the stuff of spy novels. he said it was much more boring
7:15 am
than that. he said it was owed to iran and couldn't be transferred any other way. after reviewing military efforts against isis, iraq and syria, president obama for the first time addressed questions about a $400 million payment to iran at the time four detained americans were released. >> we announced these payments in january. many months ago. there wasn't a secret. this wasn't some nefarious deal. we do not pay ransom for hostages. we do not pay ransom. we didn't here and we don't -- we won't in the future. >> as yet, the administration has refused to say if the plane ferrying the americans from iran to swirtser land departed before or after. the nature of payment, not the timing, made the story intriguing. >> maybe because it kind of feels like some spy novel or,
7:16 am
you know, some, you know, crime novel. because cash was exchanged. the reason cash was exchanged is because we don't have a banking relationship with iran. >> reporter: in the fight against the islamic state, mr. obama said the tide is turning. >> isil has not had a major successful offensive operation in either syria or iraq in a full year. >> reporter: but the president took painful note of terror attacks in europe and at home. >> we've seen it is still very difficult to detect and prevent lone actors or small cells of terrorists who are determined to kill the innocent and are willing to die. >> reporter: the president also touted coalition air strikes that took off the battle field three top isis commanders and intelligence gained from strong holds in iraq and syria. josh, it was by far, the most optimistic battle against the islamic states and flies in the

off the unresponsive toddlers in a kiddie pool. another neighbor rushed off with packs of ice, but it wasn't enough to save the girls. >> we found a girl that had two child seats, we believe possibly that's where the children were possibly left. >> the temperature at the time was around 90 degrees. north faces multiple charges. this is just the latest in what has been a tragic string of hot car deaths this summer. earlier this week, an 18 month old girl was pronounced dead after she was found in abilene kansas. so far this summer, at least 26 kids and 15 states have died after being left in hot cars. that's two more than all of last year. >> we're really concerned about the numbers that we're seeing this year. >> debra herzman is the chair of

8:03 am
morning saying the plane i saw on television was the hostage plane in geneva, switzerland, not the plane carrying 400 million in cash going to iran. this is the latest incident and a tumultuous week for donald trump. he attacked a fallen soldier's parents and seemed confused about russia's president and ukraine. >> he is not going in ukraine. you can mark it down. >> he is already there. >> he's there in a certain way but i'm not there yet. horrible things were said about me. so all i did was respond and i will always respond. she was standing there. she had nothing to say and probably maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say. i always wanted to get the purple heart. this was much easier. blood coming out of her eyes. and i meant her nose. or her ears. or her mouth! but these people are perverted and think it was another location. i've never been a big fan of
8:04 am
john mccain and i just hate the way our veterans have been treated by john and other people. and i'm afraid the election is going to be rigged, i have to be honest. the campaign is doing really well. it's never been so well united. >> meanwhile, president obama was asked yesterday about donald trump's assertion that you heard there that the election could be rigged. >> it is -- i don't even really know where to start on answering this question. of course, the elections will not be rigged. what does that mean? the federal government doesn't run the election process. >> the president went on to say that he has heard of people complaining they have been cheated after losing, but not before the game was even over. hillary clinton's running mate tim kaine may be trying to shed his self-described boring image. the virginia senator was part of
8:05 am
dad jokes in philadelphia. yesterday, he greeted voters at a virginia diner and in our interview, kaine went on the attack against donald trump. he has said, in your home state, that he is going to take care of veterans better than anybody. >> i don't think anybody believes that. here is what he has done in my home state the last two weeks. he trashed a virginia family, the khan family from charlottesville whose son is a uva grad who was a hero who was killed and trashed this gold star family. he came to a rally in northern virginia a couple of days ago and kicked a crying baby out of -- out of a rally. and then he had the nerve to say to the crowd, things are going lousy for you here in loudon county. they have the highest family income in the united states and told them how bad were. this is not a way to win friends and influence people to come into a state and trash military families and trash institutions that people care about and perpetrate a false health department of the state's
8:06 am
economy. >> at the democratic convention, the former mayor of new york city, michael bloomberg spoke and he said that americans need a sane and competent president. do you think donald trump is sane and competent? >> i don't know donald trump. so i'm not going to make any comment about mental capacity, et cetera. why would i do that? i don't know him. but, again, when you say things, they reveal who you are. and when somebody shows you who they are, you ought to trust that. and he says he is going to be great for vets. he spent his whole life bragging about how he uses every dodge he can to pay as few taxes as he can. how do veteran services get supported? get supported by you and me paying tax because we want to honor their service or sacrifice. a guy dodging to pay taxes is no friends of vets. >> is a clinton/kaine administration a third obama term? >> no. it's a first hillary clinton term and it is very important that that be the case. what you're going to see in hillary clinton's choice of people around her when she gets in is a clear signal we are
8:07 am
taking advantage of new talent, new idea, innovative people, because this is the first hillary clinton term and i think she is going to make that plain from the very first day. >> how would it differ? it's not secret that president obama has not had the warmest of relations with republicans in congress and as a result, there has been a lot of gridlock and a lot of really important issues facing this country. what would you do differently than president obama? >> i wouldn't lay the gridlock at president obama's feet. before he made his first visit of congress there was a meeting of congressional republican leadership and their goal was to make him a onetime president. >> reporter: do you get along with mitch mcconnell? >> i do. what is more important is the number of republicans who tell me hillary was actually really good senator, they tell me that all the time. >> reporter: you think hillary clinton has better relationships with republicans than barack obama? >> she was in the senate for eight years and then four years as secretary of state. so she has got 12 years of working together with the senate. when the president was elected. i'm a big supporter of president obama and a friend. he had been in the senate four
8:08 am
years and two years he was running. in terms of the time into the relationships, yes, on her first day, she will have a deeper well of relationships in congress than president obama had on his first day. >> that's interesting. >> it is. >> norah, the fractured nature of the relationship between donald trump and house speaker paul ryan has dominated the news cycle. >> i asked him about that. he likes speaker ryan. he dealt with him on the budget deal because they served on committees in different house and he said he feels sad for paul ryan and what is going on. tim kaine is a fund-raiser for hillary clinton in many ways and he is also in wisconsin today, paul ryan's home state. >> we have more to come. a new air war over delivery drones. google's parent company and amazon are trying to outdo each other with tests on opposite
