7:03 am
clinton. this morning here in new york. yesterday clinton mocked trump's track record as a businessman and said his economic policy would put the united states back into a recession. >> we spoke with donald trump yesterday at his headquarters in trump tower. he defended his business credentials and addressed the fact that he is millions behind clinton in fund-raising. you saw the numbers. hillary clinton and her campaign allies have spent $23 million in eight battleground states on television advertising. the trump campaign has spent zero. >> isn't that impressive? >> do you need to fight back? >> let me ask you, is it impressive when we're even and she's spending $23 million? i get no credit. when i spent less than anybody and won the primaries like in new hampshire, i spent $1 million, and a certain opponent spent $8 million. i won in a landslide. nobody said, gee, he did it without spending the money. that's called good business
7:04 am
practices. i don't know how you can spend -- by the way, we're raising quite a bit of money. i'm raising it for the party. i'd rather spend my own money. to me, it's simply. you don't need to spend $1.2 billion. she's going to spend $300 million a month. you're talking about four months. and i just -- i talk to my people and say why do you have to spend $1 billion? it doesn't make sense. >> she's got $42 million in the bank. you've got $1 million in the bank, how do you run a ground campaign? >> that's from a filing, in fairness, that took into account one day. i don't want to devote the rest of my life to raising money from people. whether she raise this money -- when she raises this money, she's making deals. they're saying can i be the toomd thi ambassador to this, all of the money she's raises, that's blood money. blood money. i was one of the biggest donors. i gave a lot of money to the party. i gave money to everybody.
7:05 am
i was a big donor. i understand better than anybody. look, she's getting tremendous money from wall street. she'll take care of wall street. she's getting tremendous money from lots of people. she's going to take care of those people. part of my skpcampaign is that s money is being spent. she's making deals with the money. >> she said your economic policies would create a trump recession. >> no. we're going to create an absolute unbelievable country. we're going to put people back to work again. we're not going allow countries to steal our businesses. >> your current plan, analysts say it would add $30 trillion to the deficit because you'll reduce taxes, you're not going to cut entitlement. >> i'm going to bring back jobs, businesses. we'll have a lot of people coming to our country -- >> how? >> look -- >> how do you do that? >> companies are leaving the united states, corporate
7:06 am
inversion. they're leaving the united states. we have almost $5 trillion out there where they can't get the money, they can't bring it in because there's no mechanism. and the tax is so high. i'm going bring tremendous money, tremendous amounts of jobs, numbers of companies. yes, the tax is going to be cut from the highest taxed nation in the world to a fairly low tax. not the lowest in the world, now a fairly low tax. >> hillary clinton called you the king of debt. >> no. i call myself the king of debt. i'm great with dealt. nobody knows debt better than me. i've made a fortune using debt. i renegotiate debt. that's smart, not stupid. >> how do you renegotiate the sdmet. >> you say, guess what, the economy crashed, i'm going to give you half. i like debt for me. i don't like debt for the country. i like debt for my company, but i don't like debt for the country. for the country we have $19 trillion in debt. soon it's going to be $21 trillion -- not billion, $21
7:07 am
trillion in debt. i will tell you, we are sitting on a time bomb. hillary clinton doesn't have a clue. and president obama has pretty much doubled the debt since he's been in office. we have to chop that down. >> janet yellen blasted you saying the u.s. could load up on debt and make a deal with creditors if the economy is soured. she said there would be severe consequences if an elected president tried to renegotiate the nation's debt. >> i wouldn't renegotiate the debt. i would -- if i do a deal in a corporation, as an example, if the economy goes bad, i'll oftentimes renegotiate debt. that's a different thing. that's a corporate thing. people like me, very big people in the world of business, they do that. i wouldn't do that. i think it could be a good time to borrow and pay off debt. borrow debt, make longer term debt. >> there's no doubt you have broken all the rules in this race. when people look back and see
7:08 am
this time in the campaign, barack obama heavily outspent mitt romney. it hurt him -- hurt him in the campaign. george w. bush heavily outspent john kerry. you said history doesn't matter. >> no, it's nice to be funded. when i get funded, i have to ask people for money. when i ask for money, they want favors. everybody wants favors. hillary clinton's getting a lot of favors. she's going to have -- to be owned by wall street. she's going to be owned by the banks. she's going to be owned by a lot of groups. i don't like that. i would rather say it like it is and -- like it is is that i don't want to spend a lot of money. >> despite that, the trump campaign is trying to ramp up its fund-raising. for the first time, the candidate sent an e-mail on behalf of his campaign asking for donations. he says he will personally match every dollar donated within 48 hours up to $2 million. >> sounds like trump's making an argument for public financing. >> yeah.
7:09 am
his campaign chair wman was the and said you're going to match $2 million, and he said i am? >> and given his staff and property and companies a lot of money. >> he's got a plan. in washington, hillary clinton will meet with house democrats in a few hours. nancy cordes is outside the room where the meeting will take place. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. and those democrats are delighted with clinton's new focus on trump's business record. they believe that all the questions about his taxes and his -- his charitable giving and the lawsuits against him will end up invalidating his biggest selling point, his financial savvy. >> the united states of america doesn't do business trump's way. he's written a lot of books about business. they all seem to end at chapter 11. >> reporter: clinton argued trump's success has come at the expense of workers and says his
7:10 am
ideas on half baked. >> he calls himself the king of debt. his tax plan sure lives up to that name. >> reporter: while speaking, trump of holding a closed door meeting with evangelical leaders where he appeared to raise questions about his opponent's faith. >> she's been in the public eye for years and years. yet, there's nothing out there. there's like nothing out there. it's going to be an extension of obama but worse because with obama you had your guard up. >> reporter: several organizations held a press conference afterwards defending trump but declining to offer an endorsement. >> i'm interested to see what he's going to do with one of the most conservative platform the gop has had. >> reporter: after her meeting on capitol hill, clinton will head to raleigh, north carolina, where she will lay out her alternatives to trump's economic proposals. he want to slash corporate taxes, she will argue in favor of an exit tax on companies that move overseas.
7:11 am
>> thanks. with us, mark leibovich, chief national coptrrespondent for "t new york times" magazine. the headline reads "face the nation: republican leaders contend with donald trump. and the greatest identity crisis in the party's modern history." welcome. before that, you saw the interview norah did with donald trump. your reaction to what trump says? >> i think the piece on the fund-raising is very, very effective for him because it's a bad story for him. it's been a bad story this week, that he's being completely outraised. he turn it around and says campaign financing, campaign fund-raising, asking for money is unseemly. i'm not engaging. i'm a lean sort of thinking business person. >> at the same time, alarm in gop over trump's war chest. the people who provide support in a national general election are saying we're concerned that he doesn't show any regard for how little money, as norah pointed out, is in his campaign
7:12 am
chest. >> i can confirm the alarm is real. he will say, look, these are political people. i'm not a political person. these people have played the same game for many years. i'm playing a different game. >> explain why does the money matter in terms of a ground game. does it matter? >> traditionally it does. he can say i can sit in my office and generate buzz in the media. it will do the same as it did the primary. in real world when you're trying to get swing states like ohio, you need a way to get the voters. he's not been called upon to do that. >> he seems to think he doesn't need the gop machine. until now he hasn't. can he continue with that? >> as a rhetorical matter, yes, he can. as a practical matter, he can't. he's essentially outsourcing maybe 80%, 90% of his campaigning, fund-raising, the day to day to the rnc. he needs them desperately. he can only do it to a point.
7:13 am
>> tell us what you saw at the rnc that's relevant. >> the rnc is an apparatus, the party. they have to make this thing work. in a way, they can't make stands and say we don't support our nominee. they have to work with him. it's a tumultuous young marriage. they are kind of ticking each other off every day. and i have no idea how that's going to work. >> contributed to lewandowski's resignation? >> i think a lot contributed to that. i think that's been going on for a long time. i think the rnc was the least of his problems. >> the rnc. you spent a lot of time with reince priebus. something caught my eye, "he has the beginning of jowls and tiny goose pimples under his eyes like those on the belly of a toad." i thought, mark, that seems unusually harsh. >> it will. at penn station the first person i saw was reince priebus. that's the first thing he mentioned. i want to -- to be able to
7:14 am
reiterate that he looked great. the things had cleared. he had been a bad night's sleep. i'm there now. >> we've all had those. >> are you taking back the remark? >> i think i might actually. in a future version, we might clarify this. >> that's what you do. >> i've got to be stand up. >> now it's in print forevermore. >> and read on national television. >> taking it back. >> thank you very much. california firefighters worked overnight to stop a wildfire that's forced thousands in los angeles to leave their homes. at least 21 wildfires have burned 131,000 acre in the hot southwest. mireya villarreal has more on the fight to douse the flames. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. while temperatures have dialed back just a bit, it is still hot. there's an excessive heat and red flag warning in place now. the last two days, these fires have ballooned and burned more

good morning. it is wednesday, june 22nd, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there's more real news ahead including hillary clinton and donald trump turning up the heat on each other. we'll ask mr. trump why he's now questioning clinton's religion. first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> she's got $42 million in the bank. you've got $1 million in the bank. >> all of the money she's raising, that's planned parenthood -- that's blood money. democrats are delighted with his focus point, his financial savvy. >> he doesn't show regard for how much money is in his campaign chest. >> i can confirm that alarm is real. the last two days, these fires have ballooned and burned more than 5,400 acres.
8:01 am
>> every day is a new nugget of information. today it's a gay man who said he had an affair with mateen. the investigation is still underway. authorities have ruled out terrorism in this ill-advised rescue attempt. >> the baylor campus rocked by three lawsuits and counting from women who say they were raped by other students and then pushed aside. weather conditions make flights too dangerous. even rescue missions are rare with the current one just the third never history. soccer superstar leonard messi wowed the crowd. >> it's good to be cute and good? >> don't you play shy and modest. you know what it's good to be cute and good -- >> and smart. throw that in there, too. he's telling us, no. >> and loved. loved and adored. >> keep talking. keep talking. don't choke up. >> a great place to be, boys and
8:02 am
girls, you would love to be here. all i'm saying. >> it is. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. the political conventions are a month away, and the presidential candidates are warming one hard-hitting speech. donald trump planneded to strongly criticize hillary clinton when he speaks in a few hours. that follows a clinton speech in ohio where she said thank you very much's economic policies would start a new recession -- she said trump's economic policies would start a new recession. >> donald trump held a private meeting with evangelical leaders where he seemed to question hillary clinton's religion. >> she's been in the public eye for years and years. and yet there's no -- nothing out. there there's like nothing out there. it's going to be an extension of obama but worse because with obama you have your guard up. with hillary you don't. it's going to be worse. >> we asked donald trump about those remarks. this week's campaign shakeup, his children, and more in an interview at trump tower. you met with evangelical leaders
8:03 am
here in new york, and you questioned hillary clinton's commitment to her faith. you don't know anything about hillary in terms of religion -- >> it question was asked what do i think. i said i know nothing about. i'm not saying that in a negative way. you know, i've watched hillary for a long time. i don't know anything about her faith. i wouldn't question her faith. somebody said to me, what do you think. i said, don't know anything about it. >> after the meeting -- >> i don't think i did anything wrong. we can make that into the headline because that's what the press usualli. does the fact is, i don't know anything about her faith. >> after the meeting with her, press including tony perkins held a press conference and were asked if they would endorse you. none said they were endorsing you. is that a concern? >> no, but tony perkins is a cruise guy. 100% cruz -- >> ted cruz. >> he's not for me. i think, look, they had the largest gathering they've ever had. i have had tremendous support. franklin graham was there and many others.
8:04 am
>> do you need evangelical support to win? >> sure. i'll get evangelical -- i beat cruz badly with evangelicals, as you probably know because you reported as well as anybody in the world. but i will get evangelical support. i didn't know about anybody. i thought almost everybody -- we had over 1,000 people. they expected 100, and it ended up being over 1,000. i think most of the room, you could have grandstanders like tony perkins. i think most of the room -- i don't think, i know, almost 95% of the room is in favor of donald trump. if you look at the numbers i get with evangelicals, we have tremendous, tremendous response from the evangelical community. and i won the election, i won the primaries largely based on the support of evangelicals. >> you made change in campaign staff. how influential were your children in saying, dad, let's make some changes as we shift to the general election? >> my children are very smart,
8:05 am
and they're not much involved in the campaign. i rely on them from the standpoint of i like to listen to intelligent people. they're intelligent. cory's done a great job. i'm a big fan of cory, i like him a lot, he likes me a lot. we are going into a different phase, and i have a good team of people. i think we're going to do well. i think the early polls are showing that -- >> your children saying, look, we need gear up, this is a national election. we've got a lot of battleground states. we need to raise more money -- >> it wasn't. i'd tell if you it was. there's no big deal. there's nothing wrong if they did say that. i read where my children didn't like cory. they like him very much. two felt really badly because they didn't want that. >> at a rally march you said ivanka and melania had begged you to be more presidential. >> they say, please act more presidential. i said i can't until i finish my
8:06 am
victory. i'll act presidential! >> i assume they were giving you advice. what sort of advice were they giving? >> they love the country and think i'm doing obviously very well. they're proud and all that. i only consider myself doing well if i win. a lot of people say it doesn't matter if he wins or loses -- i said no, if i don't win, i don't consider it to be a great achievement. this country has tremendous potential. we're being ripped off by everybody. this country has tremendous potential. if we use this potential, we'll be stronger, bigger, better than ever before. you watch. >> you didn't answer my question -- >> they'd like me to be more presidential. i fill up massive stadiums, if i stand there -- it's easy to be presidential. it's harder to do what i do. when you said the other day, norah, we had thousands and thousands of people lined up forever trying to get into a
8:07 am
packed convention center. nobody's ever seen anything like it. they had helicopters covering it. if i stand up and do a teleprompter speech like hillary clinton does, the line would be no line, and there would be three people in the front row. you know, being presidential for me is much easier than what i have to do to energize the people in the party so they get out and vote in november. i think you see it. with all of the false stories i get, that i'm essentially tied in this -- i don't know. i think we'll do very well. i'm going to be very presidential when it's the right time. >> he said if you're playing baseball and win the pennant, why do you change for the world series. what he's doing so far has seemed to have worked well for him. >> but you've got a lot of rebellion almost within the party. number one. two, he's got problems with cash. and number three, there's a real difference in being presidential and being what he says red meat.
8:08 am
>> yeah. >> and there's a question as to whether being presidential has its time and place and whether it is now. >> everybody says you are who you are. it will be interesting to see if there will be changes. >> his children are smart and intelligent, as she'd. they push to -- as he said. they push saying it's a numbers game. there's a ground game to put together. >> you've got more than just have supported you in the primaries. >> i think they acknowledge that there's got to be more substance in this campaign. we talked a little about when he's going to talk more about details of his economic plan. i think we'll hear some of that today, and the campaign continues. >> when it comes to him and his children, they're very, very tight. very tight. >> the convention just a month away. >> oh, boy. >> here we go. >> just getting started. firefighters in california this morning, they are keeping up their relentless attack on several wildfires. two fires in los angeles county are burning about a mile apart. they're threatening to merge. they have ballooned to around 5,400 acres in the past two days. hundreds have been forced from
