our little ktvu east bay branch is wrestling in the breeze. today temperatures are going to take the drop and really take a plunge tomorrow. the fog is starting to make a move over the bay as well. let's get right to it. house of yen down in los gatos, some of those tropical clouds are sneaking into parts of the south bay. i don't think they will be too much. good morning, it's 60 and lovely today. happy tuesday to you. it will be a cooler tuesday. get out of the way. low clouds and fog and they are going to get together, if you will, starting to come around point reyes. right over the golden golden gate. over to tiburon, berkeley as well, and a little bit over san pablo bay to vallejo. all that moisture from what was hurricane paine, a few high clouds made it up here. most of the moisture to the south. 21 gusts to 25. it was calm yesterday. that's a big difference here. we are getting more of a breeze. some of the higher elevations,
20, 25. 60s on the temps. we'll see a lot of mid-50s, giving way to 70s, 80s around the coast and bay, but then temperatures will take a drop as that system swings in, and it's going to feel like it on thursday. 60s, 70s, 80s, low 90s. very busy morning, what do you want to start with. >> we have a lot of slow traffic, steve, and one of the busiest spots is on interstate 80, the east shore freeway. it's taking 43 minutes to drive from the carcinas bridge to the mac arthur maze and you can see traffic spill to the bay bridge toll plaza. it's about a 25 minute delay before you make it onto the bridge. we have a big commute here. and a lot of people that i meet saying wow, we have to start counting over when you get to the bay bridge, so the time it takes metho get from the car key -- takes me to get from the carcinas bridge to the maze, and another delay there. traffic is going to be busy. let's move along and take a
look at some of the other east bay commutes. highway 4 is slow through part of antioch, pittsburg and bay point, and 680, an early start to the slowing from concord to walnut creek. danville, through lafayette. 7:03. let's go back to the oakland area where police are still investigating a car crash that shut down a major street this morning. the driver hit three parked cars and is being treated for severe injuries. ktvu's leigh martinez is live on foothill boulevard where the crash occurred. >> south foothill boulevard is open to traffic, and the evidence from the damage of what happened here this morning is still here. police say a woman potentially drunk driving hit one war here. she pushed that -- car here. she pushed that car into a brick wall. you can see the damage over here. she didn't stop there. she continued down, you see the broken glass, hit a second parked car and where those men are working, she hit that white
truck. she jumped the curb and severely mangled her car. she is in critical condition right now. the crash happened right before 3:00 a.m. the woman lost control of her car. she was driving at a high rate of speed, lost control and crossed from the westbound lane on foothill boulevard into the eastbound lane. she struck three different vehicles and completely mangled, destroyed her car. she was not conscious when paramedics took her to the hospital. across the road, there were clothes and a gift bag that read happy birthday. police believe that those items came from her car. back out here live, they are trying to tow that last week there. that's the white truck she hit before jumping the curve. again, we do not have an update on her condition, but police say she was in critical condition with a severe brain trauma injury. and at that point, she was not looking so good, so we know she's taken to highland
hospital in critical condition. she was the only drive, and police believe that a high rate of speed that she was driving and alcohol played factors here. >> leigh, thank you. this morning, we're learning more about a man accused of setting off bombs in the new york, new jersey area over the weekend. authorities are looking to a number of trips the man took overseas as they try to understand his motive for the attack. ktvu's alex savidge is live in the newsroom with what investigators are uncovering. >> over the past couple of years, the suspected bomber reportedly took three month long trips to pakistan and afghanistan and authorities are trying to figure out if he may have been in touch with any foreign terror groups. this morning, ahmad rahami is being held on $5 million bail, and attempted murder of a police officer, after he wounded two police officers in a shoot out before he was captured in linden new jersey. authorities believe he planted two bombs, one of which
exploded, leading 29 people hurt, and suspected of setting out of an explosive in seaside park new jersey and linked to a backpack full of pipe bombs found near his apartment in new jersey. rahami is a naturalized u.s. citizen who was born in afghanistan but grew up in new jersey where his family ran a restaurant. >> i never really thought that this would ever happen because it never really seems like that type of people. >> he was very quiet, but again, no town in america is immune from terrorism anymore. >> now, rahami was captured after a bar owner spotted him sleeping in a doorway, and called police. those officers recognized rahami, and they tried to arrest him. rahami exchanged gunfire with those officers and they were both wounded. rahami was struck in the leg by a bullet. investigators are now working to go figure out exactly how rahami became radicalized and what his motivation may have been. they are also working right now, gasia to figure out if anyone else was involved in
these bombings. >> alex thank you. hillary clinton and donald trump have both commented on the bombings in new york and new jersey. trump said the bombings are good public relations for isis and other terror groups because it looks like they are beating the u.s. and he expressed support for profiling, saying it's necessary to keep the country safe. hillary clinton says trumps comments are being used by terror groups as recruiting tools to try and convince young people the u.s. has declared war on all muslims. today we are asking you this is profiling a security tactic we should consider or is it a slippery slope that could lead to more problems. >> let us know what you think. post a comment to our ktvu facebook page. you can tweet us using that hash tag, ktvu. time is now 7:07. federal authorities say more than 800 immigrants who were scheduled for deportation were mistakenly granted citizenship. the inspector general for the department of homeland security
found 858 immigrants were grant granted citizenship. according to the report, older fingerprint records were not digitized so immigrants who should have been deported were not identified and instead were able to become citizens. some environmentalists and affordable housing advocates believe parking could be the answer to easing the housing crunch. the bay area news group reports the oakland council will consider a proposal for parking requirements for commercial and residential developments. mayor libby schaaf says many residents who live near bus stops rely on public transit rather than driving. parking requirements add extra burden to developers and encourage more gas guzzling cars on the road. starting in a week from thursday it will be much easier for people to help the homeless. the city of san rafael is installing purple meters. they can make a donation to the city's downtown streets team.
the objective is to help find jobs for people living out there on the streets. the idea is to allow people to make a donation to help the homeless while avoiding giving money directly to the panhandlers. >> the flames were so high, it just exploded. by the time the fire engines got here, everything was on fire in the back. >> at 7:30. hear more as neighbors describe the chaos, and how they escaped. a california man is suing samsung after he says his phone caught fire while it was in his pants pocket and it's not one of the phones samsung is recalling. good morning, we are seeing traffic is definitely busy in many areas as you drive here at the bay bridge, you will see traffic is moving well until you get to the toll plaza. and we have the fog returning. it's going to cool down coast and bay, inland a little bit, but a huge drop in the temps starts tomorrow.
. time is 7:12. former president george hw bush may have made up his mind about who will get the vote in november. reportedly it won't be donald trump. he plans to vote for democrat hillary clinton. according to politico, the daughter of robert kennedy says the former republican president told her about his plans. the bush family has been mostly quiet about the 2016 presidential race but mr. bush did say he would not endorse trump and neither would his son, former president george w. bush. french authorities have made 8 new arrests in connection with with the bastille day attack in nice. 86 people were killed, watching fireworks in the city on french rivera. isis has claimed responsibility for the july 14th attack. a central valley man is suing samsung after he said his
phone started making a high pitch noise and all of a sudden burst into flames. daniel ramirez says he clearly remembers what happened four months ago when he had the galaxy edge in his pocket. it uses the sam batteries -- same batteries as the galaxy note. it took seconds to go from being completely unaware of a problem to having life changing burns. >> that's when i heard the high pitched whistling sound. there was thick smoke shooting out of my pocket. it was like a torch going off in my pocket. >> ramirez suffers from burns on his hands and says part of his leg that was burned still has no feeling. ramirez says samsung should recall all the phones and tablets that use the troublesome battery. samsung responded to media requests by releasing a written statement. we are aware of mr. ramirez's incident, we don't comment on pending litigation. samsung is expected to begin its replacement program tomorrow for its recalled galaxy note 7 here in the
united states. nearly a million phones were recalled last week after some caught fire and exploded because of faulty batteries. 26 people in the u.s. were burned. note 7 users can pick up a free replacement from samsung retailers, their wireless carrier or the store where the phone was originally purchased. 7:14. let's help get you out the door. sal castaneda here to do just that. we're seeing a lot more slow traffic gasia and mike all over the east bay for people who have to get into the inner core of the east bay. let's say you're coming from contra costa county, and you want to get to alameda county. you're going to see slow traffic here on highway 24. it's not that bad. it slows only here through the lafayette area, and after that, you can see that it gets better. as a matter of fact, i have the maps here to show you that very exact point. we showed you that stretch here, but you can see the rest of it doesn't look bad into oakland. i'll show you the bay bridge in a second. 680, a lot of people will be stuck here, heading south, and look at all the slow traffic
with the road sensors on highway 4. there's definitely a lot of slow traffic as you drive through, and of course 80 westbound between hercules, just before highway 4. it's a solid line of slow traffic heading down to the macarthur maze, and not to forget about the richmond bridge, traffic is backing up well into richmond, and in marin county, southbound 101 slows near roland boulevard. it stays that way to the marin county civic center for the backups. let's go to the bay bridge, it's backed up for a 25 minute delay before you make it onto the bridge. some fog is coming back, thank goodness. here's steve. >> no id canning, sal. >> right -- no kidding, sal. >> right. >> it's back for some coast and bay. there are a few high clouds coming up. the bulk of the tropical clouds are going to stay to the south. a few are drifting up here. we're on the extreme northern edge but the low clouds and fog, plenty. good morning, steve, currently

grief counselors will be on san jose campus after a student leader dialed last weekend. bill nguyen was part of the recreation program that organized a trip to sequoia national park. 20 students went on the trip. on saturday he went swimming in eagle lake and did not return. his body was found the next day by park rangers. bill nguyen was a personal trainer and inspired his clients and friends with
motivational videos he posted on you tube. >> he loved the feeling of being able to achieve a great deal, and he wanted to share that with others. i intend to live my life to the fullest in order to honor my brother. it's what he wouldment. >> his older brother also says the family does not know of my medical condition he might have had that could have contributed to his death. rangers say the lake water temperature was probably lower than 60 degrees on saturday. a fiery crash involving several vehicles on highway 50 last night involved a family that's already been through a lot of tragedy. the matthew family chevrolet suburban towing a 10-foot trailer was hit by a fast moving big rig on westbound 50 in rancho cordova. it burst into flames. no one was seriously hurt. now, the matthews are grateful the incident wasn't worse, especially considering their
history, the couple's eldorado house was burned down in the king fire in 2014. that same year, their son vernon cody matthews a uc berkeley student went missing while hiking and he's never been found. >> that was the knife in the gut, with him going missing and twisting it was the fire. >> there was a long line of vehicles already stopped, and the vehicle behind us had a hard time. they did stop. the truck just couldn't do it fast enough. >> the matthews trail had four 5-gallon containers of gasoline inside which likely caused the fire to burn more intensely. a drunk driver hit two pedestrians before slamming into a museum in hollywood. i want to show your an aerial view of the accident. the driver of the car was trying to speed away from the scene of a smaller crash when she hit two women and slammed right into the building. both women are expected to be okay. the driver was arrested on

an unarmed man shot killed by a police officer in oklahoma. the controversial dash cam video and helicopter recording just released. still pretty busy in many commutes. in fact, it's getting busier as you drive on the freeways. we'll tell you where the traffic seems to be slowing down. fog is making a move coast and bay. a few high clouds over the coast and bay. the trend will be for cooler numbers.

7:28. starting off with a life picture of devastation. fire destroyed a home and is forcing a number of people to find somewhere else to live. you can see here all the damage that's left behind. coming up in just minutes. our own janine de la vega has been talking with neighbors in the area, and they explained to her what they think may have started the fire, and of course the serious ramifications we are finding this morning. 7:28 again. welcome back, tuesday morning, i'm gasia mikaelian. >> good morning, everyone. i'm mike mibach. dave clark has the day off. let's get to steve and let the cool down hopefully begin today. >> for sure. you'll notice it tomorrow. >> good. >> today, though, the fog and low clouds are going to drop some, 15, 20 degrees, and tomorrow, areas well inland, which are in the 100s will probably be in the mid- to upper 70s. low clouds, high clouds, temperatures on monday were toasty, toasty. 98, 83, 101, 94.
and so the cooling begins. fog is still trying to get its act together. it's back in a big way favoring coast. over the bay eventually is going to sink up and make a big move tonight and tomorrow. i would think there will be a lot of drizzle near the coast and city tomorrow. today is the transition date, a cooler pattern from a hot pattern. tropical clouds made it in but the bulk is in southern california, and about the desert. about san diego, and over to las vegas. 21-25, is calm. seeing gusts about 25 to 26. 50s, 60s on the temps. fog and low clouds will have a much cooler forecast. the big drop is from that system, swinging in tomorrow and carrying to thursday. 60s, 70s coast and bay, 80s, low 90s, a pretty good breeze behind it. 7:29, bay bridge, where do you
want to start? >> it's not great out there, at least we don't have any major problems. let's go out and take a look at what we have now. you will see the traffic is going to be busy at the bay bridge, as we mentioned, steve, it is backed up for a 25 to 30 minute delay before you make it into the san francisco. we are also looking at a commute that is going to be busy on the bridge itself. we have been looking at the san mateo bridge and that commute has been busy. i also want to mention that traffic has been slow on the dumbarton bridge as well, and we can show you a little bit of the area. dumbarton bridge traffic is slow, and when you get there, there is slow traffic. highway 101 getting into mountain view has been slow. at 7:30, let's go back to the desk. >> sal, thank you. happening right now, president obama delivering his 8th and final address to the united nations general assembly. let's listen in. >> this is important work. it has made a real difference in the lives of our people.
and it could not have happened had we not worked together. and yet around the globe, we are seeing the same forces of global integration that have made us interdependent, also exposed deep fault lines in the existing international order. we see it in the headlines every day. around the world, refugees flow across borders and flight from brutal conflict. across vast swaths of the middle east, basic security, basic order has broken down. we see too many governments
muzzling journalists and censoring the flow of information. terrorist networks use social media to prey upon the minds of our youth, endangering open societies and spurring anger against innocent immigrants and muslims. powerful nations contest the constraints placed on them by international law. and this is the paradox that defines our world today. a quarter century after the end of the cold war, the world is by many measures less violent and more prosperous than ever before. and yet our societies are filled with uncertainty and unease and strife. despite enormous progress, as people lose trust in
institutions, governing becomes more difficult, intentions between nations become more quick to surface. and so i believe that at this moment, we all face a choice. we can choose to press forward with a better model of cooperation and integration or we can retreat into a world sharply divided and ultimately in conflict along age old lines of nation and tribe and race, and religion. i want to suggest to you today that we must go forward and not backward. i believe that as imperfect as they are, the principles of open markets and accountable governments of democracy, and
human rights, and international law that we have forged remain the firmest foundation for human progress in this century. i make this argument not based on theory or ideology but on facts, facts that all too often we forget in the immediacy of current events. >> president obama making his 8 8th final address to the un general assembly in new york, touching on familiar themes we have heard throughout his presidency, climate change, financial disruption, terrorism, making his last push to the world essentially for security and unity. >> he says the world is less violent but challenges remain. interesting to see if he talks later in the address about the rise of isis since his presidency, also the global terrorism around as well as north korea has been a big topic. we'll continue to monitor his speech and bring you more of it a little bit later in the newscast. back in the bay area, we're now getting a new look at the big fire in san jose that prompted
evacuations. janine de la vega joining us live with the dramatic cell phone video, janine, from this fire. >> yes, you know, some neighbors had showed me some cell phone video. people had been posting on social media, and they say these flames just shot up way high, and something else that they were talking about, let me show you here some damage in the backyard which is just a complete mess. they were saying that their neighbor who lives here was cooking, actually barbecuing and they're saying that's what started the fire. now, here is some video from instagram that somebody shot on white road showing the huge flames and the thick black smoke just billowing out of the home. this two alarm fire was reported around 7:00 last night. firefighters determined there was a gas leak there, and that fueled the flames. they were concerned about a possible explosion, so they evacuated the neighborhood.
pg&e was called stop the gas and firefighters to extinguish the flames. >> everybody was moving the cars out of the house and then we heard the sirens show up, so that was pretty much it. we watched the show. >> the fire burned trees and power poles and a gas meet, and firefighters tell us this home is a total loss. we are wait to go get official word from fire officials on the cause. as i mentioned, neighbors tell us it was someone who was cooking chicken in the backyard. somehow it got out of control. in just the last couple of minutes, someone who lives in this home arrived at the scene, and we asked him about the cooking and he says he wasn't home at the time. he says they have cooked in the backyard barbecuing numerous times, but he just isn't sure what happened. we will hopefully hear from him
in the next hour. back to you. just a very sad situation out here. >> janine, thank you for that live report. there is word this morning that five san francisco city departments plan to start using drones. the examiner is reporting the drones had been used to respond to emergencies, assist in investigations and improved security. the five departments are the city controllers office, the fire department, public utilities commission, the port of san francisco, and the recreation and park department. san francisco's city leaders have been debating the use of drones for more than a year due mostly to privacy concerns. time is 7:37. three more bay area law enforcement officers have been charged in sex crimes scandal. brian bunton is facing an obstruction of justice charge. duvani lavardi, they are oakland police officers. former contra costa sheriff's deputy, ricardo perez charged with having sex with a minor. attorneys for the young woman at the center of the scandal
have made a $66 million legal claim against the city of oakland. san francisco acting police chief tony chaplain is reportedly among eleven finalists for the permanent job. the examiner reports the police commission has widdled the list of 61 applicants to the top eleven. five are within the san francisco police department, six from outside. they will be interviewed in the coming weeks. the only internal candidates who have gone on record are acting chief chaplain, deputy chief garrett tom, and deputy chief, mikail ali. the commission will turn in three names to mayor ed lee who will make the hire. police in tulsa, oklahoma, have released video from a dash board camera showing white police officers tasing and gunning down an unarmed african- american man. >> shots fired. >> police were responding to a stalled car friday night n. one piece of dash cash video, the
driver, terrence crutcher can be seen walking towards his car. in that video, he has his hands up. police follow him and then for some reason, one officer fires a taser. another shoots and kills crutcher. there's also a controversial recording of an officer in a police helicopter flying over this incident. >> that looks like a bad dude. >> that bad dude was my twin brother. that big bad dude was a father. >> crutcher's family wants criminal charges filed against the officer who pulled the fatal shot, officer betty shelby. both tulsa police and the u.s. justice department have launched investigations into this case. we are learning about the young man who stabbed people in a minnesota shopping mall in a suspected terrorist attack. nadir amon was a high school honor student who played sports and was popular among his classmates. however, isis is calling him
quote a soldier of the islamic state, and the fbi is investigating whether he had any direct contact with the terrorist group prior to the attack saturday night. >> we do not at this point in time know whether the subject was in contact with, had connections with, was inspired by a foreign terrorist organization. >> police say adon stabbed ten people at a shopping mall in st. cloud minnesota before he was shot and killed by an off duty police officer. all ten stabbing victims are expected to make a full recovery. time is 7:40. happening today, federal regulators are expected to release new rules on self- driving cars. the department of transportation secretary anthony fox told reporters last night that all new technologies will have to meet a 15-point safety assessment. he also said they are considering ways to regulate how many experimental vehicles are on the road. this all comes as uber is conducting road tests of automated cars in pittsburg
pennsylvania. apple, google, tesla and ford are working on self-driving cars. experts say we could be seeing these cars on the road in the next five years. if you're buying premium gas for your car, and that car is designed to run on regular, aaa says you're probably just throwing your money away. the auto club says high octane gas doesn't do anything to improve performance in most cars or reduce emissions better than regular gas. drivers spent just over $2 billion they didn't need to spend last year by buying that premium gas. donald trump's son comparing syrian refugees refugees to skittles, candy. and investigating the new york and new jersey bombings, in 20 minutes, ktvu analyst joe tuman explains what the fbi is searching this morning in hopes of prevents future attacks. we are seeing traffic is going to be busy still on 80. in fact, it seems to become just a little bit worse in the last few minutes.

this morning, the united nations humanitarian aid agency announced it suspended all convoy in syria after an aid strike. 20 civilians were killed. mostly truck drivers and aid workers. 18 of the 31 trucks in the convoy were hit. it's not clear who was behind the attack. the u.s. and russia negotiated a cease fire with the main goal being the delivery of raid to aleppo which has been cut off
for months by fighting. they called it a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law. a tweet by donald trump's son talking about syrian refugees and poisoned skits is getting a lot -- skittles is getting a lot of attention saying quote if i had a bowl of skittles and i told you 3 would kill you, would you take a handful. online reaction to the tweet was overwhelmly negative with people criticizing him for trivializing a spokesperson for skits said, skittles are candy. refugees are people. we don't feel it's an appropriate analogy. millions of new accounts unauthorized by customers. the committee is looking into charges. the workers were trying to meet new sales targets. the ceo is expected to apologize for the bank not

say you're leaving vallejo, and you want to use the bay bridge into san francisco, and i'm positive a lot of people use that commute. it is approaching a 2-hour commute. it's just incredible. highway 4 westbound, a couple different accidents. highway 4 coming up to bay point is slow. 680 is jammed. people using the benicia bridge is slow. for our friends looking at 580 from san leandro to oakland, it is slow. but i wouldn't go down to 880. that's also very slow. this is one of the slowest days. there haven't been major crashes, there are minor things, kind of a normal slow day, in mid september. 8:03, let's go back to the desk. a suspected drunk driver is in the hospital with a severe hit injury after a violent crash after a woman slammed into three parked cars with her own vehicle. leigh martinez is live at 48th
48th. that's where the crash happened to explain how it all happened, leigh. >> foothill boulevard is back open. the police have left the scene. all of the evidence of the damage of the crashes and i say crashes because there were three of them. police believe that a woman had hit three parked cars early this morning. you can see all the broken glass. that is her bumper from her green honda civic. and when she hit this white truck right here, that's when she jumped the curb. her car was severely damaged and she had to go to the hospital with critical injuries. now, the crash happened before 3:00 a.m. detectives believe the woman was drunk and lost control of her green honda civic, and across from the westbound lanes into the eastbound lanes. now, she was driving at a very high rate of speed when she struck the first parked car, and that impact sent it into the brick building. she continued striking another parked car before finally hitting that parked truck and jumping the curb. the damage to her car was severe, and she was not conscious when paramedics took her to the hospital.
across the road closed and a gift bag that read happy birthday were strewn across the road. police say that all came from her car. now, the woman we're told is in her early 20s. she, again, was taken unconscious to highland hospital where she had a severe traumatic brain injury. at this time, we don't have any further details on her condition at this time. >> leigh, thank you. the man accused of the bombings in new jersey and new york over the weekend is being held on $5.2 million bail this morning. as we learn more about ktvu alex savidge joining us live with more on the key evidence that helped investigators. alex. >> good morning to you. ahmad rahami is accused of planting two bombs in manhattan over the weekend. but one of them did not go off, and authorities say it was a fingerprint on that unexploded device that helped identify the suspected bomber. rahami has been charged with five counts of attempted murder of a police officer after getting into a shoot out with police. before his capture in linden,
new jersey. he's a naturalized u.s. citizen. first identified as the person of interest in explosion in new jersey seaside park on saturday. then he was seen on surveillance video dropping off a bomb that eventually blew up in new york's chelsea neighborhood, injuring 29 people. authorities also linked him to a backpack with pipe bombs inside, found near a new jersey train station. rahami was born in afghanistan, but grew up in new jersey. elizabeth, new jersey, where his arrest came as a shock. >> got more mature, more religious. >> i knew growing up, i used to come hang out with his brothers. and he was around. >> after rahami was identified as the suspected bomber yesterday, authorities in the new york area sent out a cell phone alert to millions of people to be on the lookout for him. eventually he was found sleeping in the doorway of a bar in linden, new jersey. investigators say rahami shot and wounded two police officers
who showed up at that bar. eventually he was taken into custody. now, over the past couple of years, we're also hearing that rahami reportedly took three months long trips to pakistan and afghanistan. mike, authorities now trying to figure out if he was in touch with any foreign terror groups. turning now to the presidential race, hillary clinton and donald trump are both reacting to the bombings over the weekend in new york, and new jersey. donald trump saying it's good publicity for terror groups. >> the young people in our country and other countries, they're looking up to these people. they have respect for these people. it's like let's put it this way, they're getting good public relations because it looks like they're beating the united states or certainly like the united states can't beat them. >> trump went onto express support for profiling, saying it's necessary to keep the country safe. hillary clinton says donald trump's comments are used by terror groups as a recruiting tool. >> we know that a lot of the
rhetoric we have heard from donald trump has been seized on by terrorists in particular, isis. because they are looking to make this into a war against islam. >> clinton and trump will hold their first debate next monday. it is of course expected that the fight against terror as well as national security will be a major focus of the debate. the two have different approaches on how to deal with the terror threat facing the united states. >> and while clinton believes in diplomacy, and working with international partners, immigration and a military solution. ktvu political contributor, joe tuman joining us now. is this the hot tommic come election day that people will go to the booth and vote for clinton or trump when it comes to our security here at home. >> it's an issue but actually the polling indicates that the economy is still a larger issue for most voters. it's in there, number two as the most important issue but it
doesn't trump, if you'll forgive the expression, the economy. >> surely the debate next week will be the highlight! it absolutely will be, and that first debate of all the debates will be the most significant of these for influencing that small percentage of voters that haven't made up their minds, if there are people who haven't made up their minds about clinton or trump without question. >> donald trump seems to be going back to familiar themes in regards to what happened in new york and new jersey. is hillary clinton perhaps going to change her message, become a little bit stronger or do you think she's still going to keep her position? >> well, gasia, i think that's a good question, the messaging she has done is to run against trump which is to talk about what's negative about trump, instead of talking about positively why you should vote for her. in that sensuous a taste of what you heard in the last package where she was critical of him, i think you'll hear more of that. by the way, i should share with you, i worked as a consultant in the north atlantic treaty
organization. i was in turkey last year at a counter terrorism conference in nato when mr. trump made a statement about no more muslims in america. and our conference was dealing with isis. he made that statement, they were quoting trumps statements about no more muslims in america. she's not wrong he says when he makes claims like this that it feeds part of the social message machine that isis has used to recruit last year 35,000 people to go and fight in syria, and iraq against western troops, including against the united states. so the candidates have to be very careful about this. but, you know, she also, at the same time, has made statements like there will be no more american troops in iraq and things like that. bold statements that crow can't take back later, and the truth is if the united states or russia or anybody else is going to drive isis out of syria and iraq, you're not going to do it in bombing campaigns. you have to have troops on the
ground and we're using proxy troops. the truth is they're both wrong in some ways. it's a commitment the united states isn't willing to make right now. >> we will talk in the next hour about the investigation involving, ahmad rahami, real quick, do you think he acted alone or not? >> mr. rahami? >> yeah. >> i don't know. it's doubtful, given that he made that many weapons, it looks like. and also in that many places that there wasn't some support somewhere. at the same time, i'm not clear that in my own head this was isis involved. there are some indications that the kind of weapons he made this may have been instruction from al-qaeda. in some ways it doesn't matter, if people were operating, independent effective of what they have seen on social media, the effect is the same. he built bombs and the bombs hurt people. >> thank you for joining us on
mornings on 2. we'll bring you in for the 9 to talk more. and once again bringing up the issue of profiling and if it's a tactic police should use. it's been mentioned on the campaign trail. it is our question of the day. is profiling a security tactic we should consider or is it a slippery slope that could lead to more problems. taking your answers on the ktvu facebook page and twitter, using the hash tag ktvu. a san jose neighborhood evacuated after a gas field fire erupts. >> it's out of control. flames shooting out of everywhere. >> coming up in 20 minutes, how fried chicken may have played a part in starting the fire. up next, one of hollywood's biggest power couples may be calling it quits. it is still very slow. in fact, one of the slowest commutes we have seen in a while. highway 24 doesn't look too bad after lafayette. some rather toasty numbers the last couple of days, but they are going to start coming down big time coast and bay for
