>> frightening moments at an airport in italy. a cargo jet was landing and overshot the highway and ran onto the highway. >> a trooper was hit by a driver and amazingly he only has minor injuries. >> all. ♪ >> carpool karaoke starring the u.s. swim team. ♪ >> and all that matters. >> do you support speaker paul ryan? >> i supported the speaker and i know after next week i will be supporting him as a candidate for president -- be i mean really -- >> really? >> it's funny but, god, i hope it's true. >> on "cbs this morning." >> vice president biden tweeted this message today. happy 55th barack. a brother to me and best friend photographer. he has a photograph of a friendship bracelet. >> and donald trump tweeted the ones he made for hillary clinton. those are not friendship bracelets.
♪ welcome to "cbs this morning." charlie rose is off so josh elliott of cbsn is with us. good to have you here. >> good to be here. charlie, enjoy this weekend. >> donald trump's rocky week is finishing rougher than it started. the two latest national polls show trump trailing hillary clinton by significant margins. in one poll, he is down by 15 points. the other, by nine points. the 15-point gap is the largest since the convention. >> in battleground states a new series of polls shows that hillary clinton is leading by double digits in pennsylvania and new hampshire. in florida she is six points ahead. dean reynolds is in wisconsin where several big gop names will be noticeably absent when trump campaigns there today. dean, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, when donald trump comes here to campaign in green bay tonight, he will have his
running mate mike pence at his side, but wisconsin's top republican officials will not be here. governor scott walker, u.s. senator ron johnson, and house speaker paul ryan have all found other things to do. >> so i wrote a few things down. >> reporter: donald trump came to maine on thursday prepared to stay on message. >> 400 million in cash being flown in an airplane to iran. >> reporter: but that didn't last long. trump repeated his debunk claim that this video was video of a secret cash exchange with iran. >> a tape was made, right? you saw that with the airplane coming in? nice plane. and the airplane coming in and the money coming off, i guess, right? >> reporter: then trump had to quiet a rowdy crowd when he brought you ub mike pence's decision to endorse the re-election bid of house speaker
paul ryan. >> paul ryan is a good guy. no, he's a good guy. >> reporter: trump decided to hold out. >> he said, but i like him. he's a friend of mine. would you mind if i endorse him? and i will not do it if you say no. i said, mike, if you like him, go ahead and do it 100%. >> reporter: and pence broke on two other high profile endorsement. >> of course, i support john mccain and kell i didn't ayotte and of our republican candidates. >> he's had a pretty strange run since the convention. you would think that we ought to be focusing on hillary clinton on how all of her deficiencies. >> reporter: pointing to upcoming television briefings at an afternoon rally, trump tried to refocus his attacks on hillary clinton. >> we are both supposed to be brief in the not too distant future. i'm saying, you can't brief her. you can't brief her. >> reporter: president 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. minutes ago he tweeted the plane i saw on the television was the hostage plane in geneva, not the plane carrying $400 million in cash going to iran. so, josh, maybe that will clear it up. >> perhaps. dean, thanks for that. meanwhile, hillary clinton is focused on attacking donald trump's business record. her week-long tour of small business and final battleground states has taken her from pennsylvania and ohio to colorado and nevada. nancy cordes shows us how clinton wants to highlight trump's history of making his products overseas. nancy, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. yeah, clinton hasn't even been saying much about trump's nightmare week, because there is a growing number of republicans who are willing to do that for her. instead, she is focusing entirely on building a case that
he is a bad businessman. clinton hit her sixth small business in a week thursday in her fourth battleground state and in between sampling dessert. >> this is fabulous looking. >> reporter: and trying out toys she has hammered home one consistent message. >> i find it highly amusing that donald trump talks about make america great again. he doesn't make a thing in america except bankruptcies! >> reporter: we caught up with her thursday at mohava electric. >> donald trump says the reason he makes so many of his products overseas is the market and it's too expensive to do it right now and he would change that market as presidency. >> no. when you run for president, you eed to be judged by what you have done and i think the evidence is pretty clear. everything he has made, he has made somewhere else. he has not put americans to work. >> reporter: clinton surge is due in part to college educated white voters who went for republican mitt romney by 14
points in 2012, but now favor clinton over trump by five points. senate democratic leader harry reid campaigned with clinton in his home state of nevada yesterday and said gop turmoil over trump could make it easier for his party to take the senate. if you were faced with this situation on the democratic side, what would you do? would you withdrawal your endorsement? >> he is the nominee of the republican party. they are stuck with him. no way out of that. >> reporter: the reason he says there is no way out is that gop leaders know that if they signal that they know longer support trump, a slice of the republican electorate will simply stay home and that would lead to gop losses in congress and elsewhere that would take years to recover from. >> that is a dilemma. nancy, thank you. hillary clinton's running mate tim kaine is campaigning in wisconsin today. we spoke yesterday at a diner in the senator's home state of virginia. he talked about the controversy surrounding that 400 million dollar u.s. payment to iran that
donald trump claims amounts to 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? >> norah, here is the thing. congress was briefed on this months ago. i'm on these committees and we are aware of it. iran had a sizeable legal claim against the united states that has been pending in international 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. i don't -- >> i understand that but let's talk about the perception of on the very same day, a plane with 400 million dollars in foreign currency landing and being delivered. >> perception is one thing and reality matters more. we got hostages home. and we took a legal claim that was a legit claim and bargained it down to a fraction and we paid that claim off. >> if you were vice president
you would let it happen? >> i would negotiate any legal claim that we had and i try to get the best deal wek and i'd also try to get american hostages home. >> reporer: 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 that footage to embarrass the united states. >> i have no idea what he is talking about. >> reporter: that video doesn't exist? >> it doesn't exist. he might be thinking about iran contra from like 35 years ago or something like this. he recently criticized me saying i was a bad governor of new jersey. >> reporter: he confused you with tom kaine? >> yes, he was governor of new jersey 26 years ago. it hurt my feelings until i realized, wait a minute i was never governor of new jersey and didn't even live in new jersey. he was confusing the situation from two or three decades ago and maybe that is why he confusing this videotape. >> reporter: do you think donald trump is confused in. >> i actually think he is
confused. >> john heilemann is a producer of "the circus" a division of cbs. good morning. >> good morning. >> happy friday. >> lots of titles. >> tim kaine is saying trump is confused. >> i think a mild version of what he thinks, but yeah. >> what do you think that signals as a line coming from the clinton campaign? >> the clinton campaign has kind of a double frame on donald trump. the first he is kind of temperamentally unsuited to be president and the other is he is a jerk. that is one line which is the -- it's kind of a mild version ever this guy really shouldn't be sitting in the oval office. >> paul manafort was sitting where you were yesterday at the same time and said the campaign is not in chaos and the dropping numbers is something to be expected and we have a hundred days and in good shape. the republicans that were defecting he said were people weren't going to endorse him any way. >> right. >> they seem to be oblivious to the fact that everybody outside the bubble thinks their campaign is in turmoil? >> i don't think they are oblivious. in my 25 years of covering this
that is what campaigns say. the top man can't say our campaign is in chaos. >> they could say there is a troubling thing. >> you never hear that from campaigns. not what they are paid to do. it is the case right now that there is polling now that has donald trump, not just according to a poll yesterday that had a 15-point gap but has donald trump down 33. previously, a lot of people thought his floor was 39 and 40. donald trump at 33 is a catastrop catastrophe. >> the battles are over before they are fought. >> the battles aren't over. we still have shy of a hundred days and still opportunity to change. there is a huge opportunity for trump when the debate come around. his problem right now is that this bounce that she's gotten which coineds with maybe the worst week for him of the campaign, comes now at the
beginning of august, where we are about to head into three weeks of olympic coverage. not a lot of opportunity to move these numbers and reset the race until you get to mid september. so the debates are always going to be huge. but this is going to be, i think, these numbers are going to kind of lock in now for a little while and that not only is a problem for trump in the long run, but it contributes to this extraordinary panic in the party. >> they are not saying it publicly but are they saying it privately? >> i think everybody in the trump campaign are incredibly concerned. >> the candidate himself seems to be perhaps signaling this by saying a few times now the election is rigged. president obama, yesterday, spoke about it. that is quite a flag to plant. doubt he believes that or is this the makings of an excuse? >> i have traveled in some strange and difficult to explore places but what exactly goes inside donald trump's head, i don't really know. it's an amazing thing, though. it seems like every day, we have
something that happens where it's unprecedented, right is in the notion that a nominee of a major political party would try to be spinning his defeat in advance, and suggesting that basically the american democracy is broken and crooked in some way, never seen that before and i think it's quite troubling. >> he has said that a lot, "never seen that before." >> thank you, john heilemann. president obama is responding for the first time about the questions about the controversial 400 million dollar cash payment to iran and one of the issues that came up at his news conference yesterday at the pentagon. the president discussed new air striks against isis in libya. major garrett is at the white house with more. >> reporter: good morning. president obama called talk of ransom pay to iran for u.s. hostages a transfer that was carried out in big bundles of nonu.s. currency the stuff of spy novels. the president said it was much more boring than that. monoed to iran in the first place and couldn't be
transferred any other way. after reviewing military efforts against isis and iraq and syria, president obama, for the first time, addressed questions about a 400 million dollar 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 and we didn't here and we don't -- we won't in the future. >> reporter: as yet the administration has refused to say if the plane ferrying the americans from iran to switzerland departed before or after the currency arrived. deepening the sense iran viewed it as ransom. the president suggested the nature of the payment, not the timing, made the story intriguing. >> maybe because it kind of feels like some spy novel or, 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, obama said the tide is turning. >> isil has not had a major successful offensive operation if in either syria or iraq in a if you year. >> reporter: but the president took painful note of isis-inspired terror attacks in europe and at home. >> as we have 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 battlefield three top isis commanders and intelligence gained from former isis strongholds in iraq and a vae. the optimistic investment against the islamic state and one that flies in the face of criticism of gop nominee donald
trump. >> police in london say a stabbing rampage that killed an american woman was not an act of terrorism. 64-year-old darlene horton died in wednesday's knife attack. her husband is a florida state university professor teaching in london for the summer. five other people, including a second american, were hurt in the attack. police say the somali norwegian teen behind the attack appears to suffer from mental health problems. a georgia father is under arrest after his twin daughters died after parnl left in a hot car. it's unclear how long the 15-month-olds were in the vehicle. it happened in carrollton, georgia. mark strassmann shows how it's a deadly summer for children left in overheated vehicles. >> reporter: police say when they arrived on the street in carrollton, they found the father asa north along with neighbors trying to cool off the unresponsive toddlers in a
kiddie pool. another neighbor rushed over with packs of ice but it wasn't enough to save the girls. >> we did find a car that did have two child seats in the back seat of the car. we believe possibly that is where the children were possibly left. >> reporter: the temperature, at the time, was around 90 degrees. north faces multiple charges of involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct. this is the latest in what is a tragic string of hot car related deaths this summer. earlier this week, an 18-month-old girl was pronounced dead after she was found not breathing in a hot car outside of abilene, kansas. sore far this summer, 26 kids in 15 states have died after being left in hot cars. that is two more than all of last year. >> we are really concerned about the numbers that we are seeing this year. >> reporter: deborah hersman is the former chair of the ntsb and now runs the national safety council.
>> it takes minutes for a car to heat up to dangerous levels. kids' bodies heat up four times faster than adults and cracking the windows doesn't matter. >> reporter: the twins' death in carrollton are still under investigation. for "cbs this morning," mark strassmann, atlanta. >> we have stories like this every single summer. you hope people would get a system in place so they could figure it out. she made a good point, cracking the window does not make a difference. important to remember. >> a cargo plane overshot a runway at an italian runway overnight. it burst through an airport fence and blocked two lanes on the road. the accident delayed the flights for hours in italy's third busiest airport northeast of milan. the pilot and first officer were not hurt. a cbs news investigation into used car dealerships sparks action. that is ahead. first, it's time to check your local weather.

fans crying conspiracy. it got so bad one dc fan started a petition to shut down rotten tomatoes. the petition was cancelled but not before garnering more than 18,000 supporters. >> i do feel like there is some semblance of a bias. >> reporter: brian anderson, who hosts the comic book podcast nerd rage says some fans have crossed the lip with their tactics, he remains suspicious. >> i do feel something is going on. i do feel there is probably some level, i guess you would say, influence. >> reporter: i don't know any critics who go into any movie going which company made this? oh, it's dc, i don't want to -- i'm not going to like this. >> reporter: matt singer is both a comic book fan and a professional film critic. >> we deserve a better class of conspiracy here. there is no conspiracy. all it would take is one good dc movie or one bad marvel movie to
flip that. >> reporter: part of the issue stems from a feeling of ownership that fans can have over their favorite characters. but that isn't a consideration for this rookie. >> i won't settle for a mediocre comic book movie just because it features characters that i, you know, loved growing up or that i've always wanted to see on the screen and maybe that is what sort of makes critics look like we are too critical, too negative all the time. >> reporter: we reached out to rotten tomatoes for comments but haven't received a response. "suicide squad" to open $1100 million at the box office but need 800 million to return a profit. i think it's part of the internet age. you have a voice to respond to critics in a way you didn't before. >> could be that the movie might not be that good. >> that is the bottom line sometimes. >> back in the day if you had a bad review, you would, what, write a letter? >> that's what you would do and

your name and then just when i touch the wall, katie looked at me and said, "we are going to rio!" >> i was a rookie in 2012 and i feel it's just as exciting this time around and i think a large part of that probably has to do with seeing the excitement from the rookies. >> reporter: you have so many young swimmers on this team. how does that change how you coach? >> well, what it does, it allows us to really use a lot of veterans on the team to kind of set the tone. >> reporter: david marsh is the head coach for the u.s. women's swim team and it's his job to mold the new kids on the squad into olympic champions. >> 3 billion people will be watching swimming. there is going to be a crazy crowded facility. very different than anything you've ever experienced and what we want to try to do as coach make it as simple and calm as possible. just swim meet. it happens in the water and that is what they need to know. >> reporter: one of the best hopes for american gold is 19-year-old lilly king who currently has the world's fastest time in the women's
