[ laughter ]
7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." in an historic move, president obama has lifted an arms embargo on vietnam. the president announced the move overnight at a meeting with vietnam's president in hanoi. the embargo has been in effect since the vietnam war. >> the two leaders pout a show of solidarity in the face of growing tension with china. margaret brennan is traveling with the president in happen ohio. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president obama is here to build stronger economic and security ties with vietnam. that decision to lift the arms embargo is aimed at sending a message to china that the u.s. will not let it militarily dominate asia. with a warm welcome from vietnam's communist government, president obama tried to put to rest the ghost of the brutal war with the u.s. that killed tens of thousands of people from both
7:04 am
countries. >> just a generation ago we were adversaries, and now we are friends. should give us hope. >> reporter: the vietnamese are eager to build ties with our cold war-era foe in large part because of the threat posed by militarily aggressive china which is seizing territory in the east and south china seas. in an effort to stop that land grab, president obama made the decision to sell vietnam american-made weapons, removing a ban that's been in place for over four decades. a controversial decision since vietnam is controlled by an authoritarian regime. >> the change will ensure vietnam has access to equipment it needs to defend itself and removes a lingering vestige of the cold war. >> reporter: in exchange, vietnam will give u.s. ships more access to its ports. mr. obama's next stop on the trip will be to another former enemy -- japan. he'll make a historic trip to the city of hiroshima, the first
7:05 am
sitting president to do so. that city was decimated in 1945 when the u.s. dropped the very first atomic bomb during world war ii. more than 100,000 died. president obama told japanese television that he will not apologize. >> because i think that it's important to recognize that in midst of war, leaders make all kinds of decisions. >> reporter: now the white house says the president will not revisit the decision to drop the bomb, but he will say that it gives america the unique responsibility of making sure that a nuclear weapon is never used again. >> all right. margaret brennan, thank you very much. new polls show that the race for the white house has dramatically tightened. in march and april, hillary clinton had a big lead in a head-to-head match-up with donald trump. that advantage has evaporated. she leads by just three points in one poll and is losing to donald trump in another.
7:06 am
nearly half of the voters say they want to consider a third-party option in november. nancy cordes has a closer look at the changing race. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. clinton says she doesn't pay attention to the polls, but clearly her campaign is feeling some pressure to begin focusing on her general election candidate as she and her husband unveiled some new attacks on trump. >> what make america great again means is, hey, i'll make it the way it used to be. you will be better off, and if you're not, at least you'll have somebody else to look down on. that is a dumb idea. it will not work. >> reporter: campaigning in california, bill clinton mocked donald trump's slogan -- make america great again -- previewing one of his wife's key strategies. >> we're not going to let -- at least my campaign is not going to let donald trump try to normalize himself. >> reporter: new battleground polling from florida and ohio shows voters think clinton is far more prepared than trump to be commander in chief. but they said trump is far more
7:07 am
likely to tell it like it is. they were also more likely to say he is too extreme. [ applause ] clinton may be ready to focus on trump, but sanders reminded polls show he'd be the stronger challenger. >> if we get the nomination, i guarantee donald trump will not be president. >> reporter: clinton argued sanders only polls better because he hasn't been subjected to republican attacks the way she has. >> i don't think he's had a single negative ad ever run against him. >> reporter: in california and in interviews, sanders continues to lump clinton in with trump. >> i don't want to see the american people voting for the lesser of two evils. this campaign is -- >> reporter: sanders, who only recently became a democrat, has repeatedly clashed with the party's chair, congresswoman debbie wasserman schulz. this weekend he began raising money for her florida primary opponent. >> i like debbie. do i think she is the kind of chair that the democratic party
7:08 am
needs? no, i don't. >> reporter: he's long argued that she favors clinton over him, while she criticized him last week for not doing enough to calm unruly supporters in nevada. in the fund-raising e-mail that his campaign put out last night, they pointedly said that electing her progressive opponent will send an unmistakable message to the democratic party. gay rights is the newest issue dividing -- gun rights is the newest issue dividing donald trump and hillary clinton. clinton spoke to mothers over the weekend who lost children to gun violence. chip reid looks at how both candidates have changed positions on the issue. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. both trump and clinton think they can win on the issue of guns, and over the weekend, the second amendment became one of the first topics to get the candidates to engage each other in what could be a preview of a general election campaign fight. >> ladies and gentlemen, the
7:09 am
next president of the united states, donald trump. >> reporter: when donald trump accepted the endorsement of the national rifle association, he wasted no time firing shots at hillary clinton. >> hillary clinton wants to abolish the second amendment. just remember that. >> reporter: clinton certainly hasn't proposed getting rid of the right to bear arms, but her campaign is seizing on trump's past position on guns in schools. >> i will get rid of gun-free zones in schools my first day it gets signed, okay? >> that idea isn't just way out there, it's dangerous. >> reporter: at an event in battleground florida for mothers who have lost children to gun violence, clinton fired back. >> parents, teachers, and schools should have the right to keep guns out of classrooms. just like donald trump does at many of his hotels, by the way. >> reporter: trump tweeted that clinton was wrong regarding his position on guns in schools, but he struggled to clarify sunday. >> i don't want to have guns in classrooms, although in some
7:10 am
cases teachers should have guns in classrooms, frankly. >> reporter: the issue is tricky for both campaigns. many democrats cite bill clinton's assault weapons ban as one of the reasons they lost big in the 1994 elections. and in 2008, hillary clinton struck a much different pro-gun tone in her presidential run. then-candidate barack obama called her out. >> she values the second amendment. she's talking like she's annie oakley. >> reporter: trump hasn't always sided with the nra on gun policies. in 2000, in his book "the america we deserve," trump wrote, "i support the ban on assault weapons and a slightly longer waiting fo ing period to purchase a gun." two positions he now opposes. cbs checked with hotels and resorts bearing the trump name. some claimed to be gun-free zones. others allow guests to carry a firearm with the proper permits. norah? >> thank you very much. isis claims responsibility for several deadly bomb attacks in syria this morning. a human rights monitoring group
7:11 am
says more than 120 people were killed. the blast apparently targeted supporters of syrian president bashar al assad. the explosions along the country's mediterranean coast included a suicide bombing at a hospital. elizabeth palmer is tracking developments from london. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the bombs went off between 9:00 and 10:00 local time, just when the city was geearing up for th day. mayhem is exactly what was intended. casualties, charred wreckage and above all, terror. a reminder that isis is able to strike anyone anywhere with suicide bombers who can sneak themselves and their bombs even to the most heavily protected areas. the cities they struck this morning are in the heartland of the syrian regime. it's where president bashar al assad comes from. the very center of his support is there. and until now, an area that's been safe enough that on our last visit we found syrians on the beach, convinced that they
7:12 am
were secure enough to forget at least for a while that their country is at war. i anymore. the isis bombings also send a very provocative message to president putin. the russians have two military bases in this area which they've been using to support the syrian army in its battle against the various rebel groups. gayle? >> thank you, elizabeth. iraq's military is attempting to take the city of fallujah back from isis this morning. the terror group has controlled the city about 40 miles west of baghdad for more than two years now. iraq's prime minister announced the new offensive last night. his government has told fallujah residents to get out. our david martin reports there are up to 1,000 isis fighters in fallujah. that's compared to more than 20,000 iraqi forces. u.s. advisers will not go forward with the troops. president obama confirms this morning that an american drone strike killed a taliban leader. a french news agency says this

7:14 am
released from the plane's flight deck is a standard check-in between the pilot and air traffic control over zurich in switzerland. >> 0725, thank you very much, good day. good night. >> reporter: around 2.5 hours later, the plane began to move erratically and then plummeted, disappearing off radar screens and plunging into the water. the search area is around 180 miles north of the evip-- egypt coastline where an american team spotted wreckage, and the egyptian military retrieved debris from the crash. data published by an aviation industry website appears to show automated transmissions from the plane in the minutes before it crashed, indicating there was smoke on board, though experts say the smoke alarms could also have been triggered by a sudden loss of pressure.
7:15 am
will alstair rosenshein is a former pilot with british airways. >> it means something big happened with the aircraft. multiple failures means they're in serious trouble. that's not a normal situation. could be caused by an explosion. could be caused by fire. >> reporter: no possible cause has been ruled out at this stage, including terrorism. though u.s. investigators have told us that so far there's been no credible claim of responsibility. gayle? >> holly williams in egypt reporting. thank you. a man suspected of killing a massachusetts police officer is dead this morning after a shoot-out. police say that jorge zambrano opened fire last night. his officers searched an apartment. a state trooper was wounded. zambrano was supported in the shooting of officer ronald tarantino. he was killed early sunday during a traffic stop an hour west of boston. the threat of thunderstorms and tornadoes will continue across the midwest this week. >> daddy, let's go, please! >> at least one tornado touched

million for a speech to the learning annex. >> i'll be teaching you how to make serious money in real estate. >> reporter: in the deposition, trump conceded the actual payment was $400,000. the rest he attributed to the learning annex's promotional expenses felt during questioning, he acknowledged he didn't fully explain how he came up with the $1 million value, "i don't break it down," he said. >> you have the water. you have the sticks. you have the airline that i sold -- >> reporter: the discrepancies between what trump says his net worth is and what others estimate it to be often rest on the valuation of his brand. over the years, trump's international real estate developments have grown, but many of those buildings are licensed and not owned. in 2014, trump said his brand was worth $3.3 billion. last year, "forbes" magazine listed it at $125 million. behind closed doors, trump conceded property values are often subjective. "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. "have you ever lied about your properties?" "i try and be truthful. always, when you make a public statement, you want to see it the most positive way possible. i'm no different than a politician running for office." >> i'm so good at business. you people are going to be so
7:46 am
rich so fast. >> reporter: one area where trump has broken with previous presidential candidates is refusing to release his tax returns which would provide a fuller picture of his wealth and document his income in far greater detail than the financial disclosures he's already released. >> i think that to get a full idea of who he is, those returns are an essential piece. >> reporter: former irs commissioner mark eberson served under president george w. bush. he says trump's excuse doesn't pass muster. >> he doesn't have a tax reason in my opinion to fail to release the seven years that have been audited and cleared. i think this is a political calculation by the candidate not to release returns. >> reporter: a spokesman for trump said the original book wasn't relevant then, and it's not now. he pointed to trump's financial disclosure which cites, "the greatest real estate assets in the world." trump's 2006 lawsuit was dismissed, so he appealed which he lost because the judges concluded the information that trump gave to the reporter to prove his net worth could not be

will not be kicked in the groin. that has never happened at this table on "cbs this morning." colorado is the center of debates from legalized pot to the presidential race. john hickenlooper welcomed democrats to the kngz that made history years ago welcoming president obama for president. then he became governor, leading the state through the aftermath of the aurora theater rampage and legalization of pot. he's a group pub entrepreneur. his memoir is "the opposite of woe: my life in beer and politics." we welcome governor hickenlooper to the table. hello. >> great to be here. >> are you glad you're here? >> yes, i am. who knows? >> let us know later. >> let's talk about your experimentation with pot and naked selfies. you do recall that incident in the book. >> it's a long book. >> you shared that story why? you wanted us to know what about
8:35 am
you? first tell them what happened. >> well, the -- i wanted the book to be authentic, grounded. >> honest. >> i put in stuff most people would edit out. i set up a tripod in college and took a picture of myself. >> naked. >> naked. i was in the booth -- in the bathtub. >> where are the pictures now is. >> lost to the archives of history, i'm sure. we tried to put everything in the book. >> you describe it as a call to action for nerds and geeks. i hear nerds and geeks are having a good resurgence this time of the day. >> the idea behind the book is i felt i had a story to tell, strange, unpredictable life. when i was growing up, in the book, i had thick glasses, acne. no confidence.
8:36 am
my dad died when i was a kid. through the evolution of life, you know, it -- nerds and geeks, that's who i was. if you work hard and have the right attitude and don't quit, in the end, you can play a roemp that's part of -- a role. that's part of what america needs. more people coming in to be mayors and city council members. everyone is frustrated by all forms of government. in their is us. >> this is america, this is politics. trump flies in survey s. that the way you think now? they're pretty much even? >> i don't think so. it's hard to predict these polls this far out. it's great -- exciting, like it's reading drama. i think in the end -- in the book we talk -- >> that's a snapshot today. where it is today. >> i agree. probably. in terms of how people think. i talk in the book about agnes nixon who was one of my mother's closest friends. wrote amazing soap operas, "as
8:37 am
the world turns," "guiding l.a." they would have a wedding and fill up an office with gifts. people take it as reality. i think that what donald trump has been presenting -- like "the apprenticesh apprenticeship," people think it's real life. that's not a vision for america, that's not a plan of how we should be approaching problems. >> it's also nasty, the campaign. you don't like negative campaigning. >> i also group as a skinny kid in elementary school and got bullied. and when someone's a braggart and bully, it makes me on edge because i lived that. i don't think that's the model we want for our kids in this country. obviously, this is my opinion. 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.
8:38 am
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. it became a huge battle and a challenge. >> what's the difficulty in explaining on the one hand that certain kinds of guns you don't want people to get. you won't do certain procedures and convincing people you do not want to do away with the second amendment and you do not want to
8:39 am
do away with guns? >> to look over the mass shootings we've had over the last 25 years, say, and there's about 35, i think. of those, three-quarters had magazines with more than 15 rounds. that becomes -- we couldn't find a single example of someone ever needing more than 15 rounds to defend their home ever in history. it's a benefit on the shooting range. a large capacity magazine. long term, that's probably -- like when we banned off sawed off shotguns in the 1930s. sometimes we modify our regulations, our well-regulated militias, what the second amendment says, for the overall public good of the country. >> 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
8:40 am
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 campaign be about? character? a particular issue, or what? >> i think it should be about what's your experience. what's your capability to be present on day one really is. and have you be that experienced to solve the most -- we're in
8:41 am
one of the most challenging times in our history. back to the depression is the last time we had this many increases in productivity when the electrified factories. that makes it hard to keep people to work, to keep generating new jobs and training. >> i always i hate to cut a governor off. but we've got to go. you just agreed to sit and to a facebook chat after we go off the air. do you mind if i mention the book one more time? the name is "the opposite of woe." it goes on sale tomorrow. thank you very much, you're going to stick around and do a facebook chat as soon as we get off the air. thank you very much. we should join -- search cbs this morning on join the chat. >> that's right. any restaurant can feed your stomach. this one fills up your

8:46 am
just as hyped as the diners. it's roberta's, where young people come for a slice of pie. if they want to watch a meaningful conversation, all they do is look through the glass. >> today -- >> reporter: from this intimate study in bush businessw -- bushwick, food is talk about. this man says convincing the restaurant was easy. >> the owners and said if i drop two shipping containers in your back yard, would you allow us to run a radio station out of it? they said as long as we can get the containers ourselves and use it for the restaurant if it should fail, then you can do it. >> reporter: that's how much belief they it? >> they were like, we just got two shipping container out of this. >> reporter: the network which still operates out of those green shipping containers has more than 40 hosts.

we sat in on emily pearson's show called "sharp and hot." >> you have outdoor space -- >> yes, i guess we do. >> reporter: which answers cooking questions at every level. >> we'll talk all about the benefits of charcoal versus gas grills. >> reporter: joe's show, "in the drink," is all about beverages. >> you might have six bottles to open in a five-minute span. >> reporter: over seven years, martins and his executive director, erin fairbanks, have earned a reputation as broadcast leaders in the underground food scene. food oregganically became a pla to talk about ideas as it pertains to food? >> food is politics. when we looked in the media world, there were enough cookbooks to build a mountain taller than mt. everest. but there wasn't anyone talking about, for instance, el nino's effect on the wine harvest. >> we're not trying to be a lifestyle network. our hosts are practitioners. they run restaurants. they run nonprofits.
8:48 am
they are farmers. there's no degree of separation. >> reporter: the past year was one of the best for podcast growth in more than a decade. 21% of americans have listened to at least one podcast in the past month. apple, the biggest carrier of podcasts, has 325,000 of them to choose from. >> by design, this is meant for a very endangered specinooesh a >> sure. and i not that's a good thing. it's maybe not going to equate to a book deal necessarily or a sponsorship with a major ad company. everybody can have their own sandfwox play in. >> reporter: the network which used to lure guests to come on air with the offer of free pizza, believes discussions about food and where it comes from should be part of the nightly news. it's why they've never had a hard time finding topics or people who are passionate to talk about them. has it been interesting to be a part of this ride, to watch something go from nothing to now
8:49 am
you've got so many presenters, such a bigger audience. >> it's grown so much, and when i tell people i'm part of it, there's an approving nod as opposed to an inquisitive head tilt. >> reporter: as american culture continues to obsess over eating, the heritage radio network will continue to document it. >> i feel it's pressure as a network, how do we continue to push the envelope around serious food conversation. more people want to hear it. our job is to step up and serve it. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," vinita nair, brooklyn. ♪ >> brooklyn. it's well
