7:08 am
only eluded to the issue. >> she doesn't have the strength, the stamina, or the ability to straighten out our country. >> reporter: despite being among the oldest general election candidates in u.s. history, neither trump 70, nor clinton, 68, have released in-depth health records. on another topic, trump released an entitle two americas which is john edwards the catch phrase the 10 million bye in battleground states is two more. >> i remember that. donald trump's campaign revealed last my that trump will address the impact network in detroit on saturday. it is the only african-american owned and operated christian tv network. it comes as the trump and clinton campaigns continue to argue over race relations. nancy cordes looks at the latest statements from the candidates.
7:09 am
>> reporter: good morning. we are still seeing the repercussions what was truly a first. two presidential candidates accusing each other of bigotry. the clinton campaign has followed up with a new ad flushing out their accusations, while trump court controversy on the subject this weekend but, what else? a tweet. >> you're living in poverty. your schools are no good. you have no jobs! look at my african-american over here. >> reporter: the latest clinton ad accuses trump of racial insensitivity and more fodder this weekend after the relatively of an nba star was killed in chicago. trump tweeted the following. just what i've been saying, african-americans will vote trump. clinton's running mate chastised trump. >> we ought to be extending our sympathy to the family. that is only reaction that is appropriate. >> reporter: the day before, he had sought to tie trump to the kkk. >> ku klux klan values, david
7:10 am
duke values, donald trump values are not american values. >> reporter: trump did eventually tweet his condolences to the chicago family and his supporter chris christie accused clinton and kaine of overheated rhetoric. >> this type of discourse in the campaign is just unwarranted, but it was started by mrs. clinton. >> hillary clinton is a bigot! >> reporter: actually, trump beat clinton to the punch by about 12 hours. >> there has been a steady stream of bigotry coming from him. >> reporter: the two sides are also tangling over the clinton foundation and the access its donors had to clinton as secretary of state. >> we get these new revelations almost weekly that there are thousands of new things that we haven't yet seen. >> the republicans call it pay to play. why are they wrong about that? >> when wps meet with their donors and supporters, they call it a meeting and when democrats do that, they call it a conflict >> reporter: the foundation said repeated donations did not get
7:11 am
special favors when clinton was secretary but the republicans want more documentation, including clinton's calendars and schedules and 15,000 additional e-mails that were unearthed by the fbi. >> nancy, thank you. dan seno on r was a senior adviser to the romney/ryan campaign in 2012. the trump campaign announcing it's going to spend 10 million in nine states for this new ad by called two americas. >> right. >> is it too little, too late? >> the message is right, which this is a change election and running against the third term of obama and three decades public life is hillary clinton. it's late in the message. in terms of the actual ad about 10 million is a fraction of what the clinton campaign has been spending the last several months. this stage of a presidential campaign is like a world war ii battlefield. it's about mass deployment, mass tv ad buying and mass field
7:12 am
operation and trump is doing nog of about it. >> it's a mass deportation. and donald trump saying he is going to finally give this major speech on wednesday. >> right. >> supposedly, clarifying this but isn't this muddling of the issue and bringing more attention what is a divisive issue for someone who is trying to gain hispanic voters? >> absolutely. i don't think they believe they are actually going to reach significant numbers of latino voters. i think they are trying to reach white educated suburban middle class and upper middle class and where they are suffering and republicans can't win without those voters. they are trying to calm those voters down saying we are not as crazy as the media say we are. also just this uncertainty about his position. you showed clips of his surrogates on tv all over the weekend earlier. no two of them said the same thing about his immigration plan and it speaks to the strains of not having a presidential campaign. when you have a presidential campaign, you have surrogates
7:13 am
and roll out policies and none of that is going on. it's chaos. >> the surrogates come the first debate and we have learned that not only is roger ailes advising donald trump with regard to the upcoming first debate but the trump campaign, in a stark and marked contrast to the clinton campaign is not actually having any mock debates. >> right. >> fair to say that is unusual? >> unusual, yes. i've been involved with primary presidential campaigns. the mock debate is so important. not only to re-create the point and counterpoint but a stamina issue. it's exhausting. hillary clinton, she is actually pretty effective debater. you look at her debate experience normally the end of 2008 when she was one-on-one with obama and then the last debate one on one with sanders. not what trump is used to. he is used to being on stage with 13, 14 candidates for an hour. we were struck, i was involved
7:14 am
with some of the rubio debate prep. we were struck by how exhausted he would get. it's a stamina issue. you have to prep for this. this is a different debate than in the primary. >> how exhausted trump got? >> how exhausted trump got. you could see it on the show and on television by the end he was sort of worn down, even though on steak a stamina issue there and he is sharing the stage with 13 or 14 people. this is him one-on-one with a hundred million watching. >> this is a different campaign. thank you, dan. two brothers accused of killing dwyane wade's cousin is in custody. derren and darwin sorrells face attempted murder charges. the man in charge say the suspects are, i quote, the prime example of the challenge we face, end quote. dean, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. well, the two shooting suspects
7:15 am
the police say have long criminal records and were known gang members. apparently, they were shooting on friday at the driver of a car. they missed him. but they struck nykea aldridge, who was returning home after having registered one of her children at a local school. >> this act of violence is the why we need to change the way of shooters in city of chicago. when will enough be enough. >> reporter: derren and darwin sorrells were each charged for first-degree murder in the shooting gej of nykea. derren admitted to police he shot his gun multiple times. >> we were supposed to grow old together. >> reporter: family members remembered the 32-year-old mother of four at a vigil on sunday. >> her life is gone.
7:16 am
she can't come back. >> reporter: chicago bulls star dwyane wade mourned his cousin's death on twitter, writing, the city of chicago is hurting. we need more help and more hands on deck. wade had spoken at a chicago town hall on gun violence the day before aldridge was killed. >> someday we can start a conversation and start to work today and hopeful eventually stop it. >> reporter: chicago, alone, has faced a startling number of shootings in 2016. more than 460 homicide and over 2,800 shootings have plagued the city this year and statistics to surpass last week's total. the police department has confiscated enough handguns in the city, enough for one murder every hour. >> the shooters who do this time and time again we need to put them in jail and keep them

a scary night over at one of the nation's largest airports. massive responses to a report of a gunman at los angeles international airport. it took hours for gunmen to determine if it was a false alarm. no one was reported hurt. people needed to pass through security again before then boarding their flights. police say that loud noises led to those reports of an active shooter. they are still working to determine just what the noises were. the faa had issued a partial ground stop during the chaos. two weeks ago, you'll remember reports of gunfire created a similar scare at new york's jfk airport and those reports also turned out to be false. federal investigators are trying to determine how the engine of a southwest plane blew apart in the air. the flight was flying from new orleans to orlando on saturday. its left engine suffered a dangerous mechanical problem mid flight and pictures show how parts of the damaged engine

trump's speech on wednesday how is the recent confusion over his policy on illegal immigration affected his campaign? >> i think it's a diversion. you know, this is not the issue that he wants to be talking about if he is reaching out to voters who are in the middle and might be undecided. i think it's created some problems with his core supporters, the sense that he is moving away from the idea of deporting the 11 or 12 million people who are here illegally. i think the campaign hopes to put this controversy, this confusion to rest in the speech wednesday. >> is it too little too late? >> well, i don't know. it is just 71 days until the election. so it is pretty late in the day to be explaining yourself on the issue that launched your candidacy 14 months ago. >> even as he was looking to stay on message with regard to the issues facing hillary clinton and the clinton foundation, if we looked into the clinton campaign's approach and really response, the candidate herself said there is a lot of smoke here but there is no fire. what to make of the optics right
8:08 am
now? >> so far, we don't know of anything that is illegal. we don't even know of anything that is unusual. these kind of outreaches are pretty customary for candidates running for office but i think it looks unsavory for a lot of american voters and i think one of the things that makes americans suspicious of politics and politicians. it's one reason that bernie sanders did so well against hillary clinton, hence the coziness of the powerful. >> they said they will shut the foundation down if she wins. people are suggesting that that -- >> they won't shut it down. >> they will step away but in stepping away, people suggest you're acknowledging to a degree there is an issue here? >> and if it's unacceptable as president to have bill clinton out there fund-raising for the foundation, why not unacceptable when she was secretary of state? i think that is a fair question to raise. >> the trump campaign announcing this morning $10 million bye in nine states and eight of those nine states, mitt romney lost in the last election. i know you've looked at the ad
8:09 am
too. a strong economic message. >> this is the message that republicans had been hoping to hear from donald trump, from the beginning. it's a message of change versus more of the same. the ad, it says things are going with a president clinton. that is a powerful message. we know 2 out of 3 americans say the country is going in the wrong direction and gotten off track. but donald trump has been unable to capitalize on those feelings because he has been -- made one provocative statement after another and raised questions about his own qualifications and suitability for the office. >> this is your tenth presidential campaign. an ad like this is released. wouldn't the speech that is coming up have -- be on the same message as the ad that was just released? sort of hammering home a single message to get full conch on that yet he is speaking about immigration, the ad is about the economy. is there dissidence here? >> that is not what a traditional campaign would have been planning. in fact, this is an ad that could have been put out months ago. it could have been running all

8:44 am
>> you're making yourself work. no, you relax. you get out there and you show me what you can do. you pace yourself. you be the boss! >> robert de niro is here. welcome back. >> thank you. >> not throwing punching there but sparring with your fighter, nevertheless. i know the trainer in question here is a legend in the sport. what drew you then to the story? >> well, i just had seen a movie that jonathan had done, the director, he had the script and sent it to me. i was interested, myself, because i had met him either once or twice when i was doing "raging bull," and i was impressed with who he -- just the way he carried himself. he wasn't like a typical trainer i ever saw. he had elegance about him and always dressed up and like a banker or something. so that interested me. so i looked into as much about him as i could and met his wife
8:45 am
and saw as much on him and blah, blah, blah, research and so on. and, in the meantime, we would try to get closer to making the movie. but then the -- i was committed to doing it. then the financing just dropped because supposed to come from middle east and just disappeared. we were going to do it in puerto rico. i said, really? you should write a letter to the panamanians and ask to get rich panamanians to do it for a tax break and fund the movie. panama got behind it and how it happened. >> i know the director went down there and moved there for a year. really raised money almost door-to-door and, again, in panama where duran remains a legend. >> he was behind it always, duran was. that was the logical place also to shoot it there. much more interesting place to shoot, the real place and the actual gym he trained in.

it was meant to be. >> what did the family think of the story, the movie? >> i think they are happy it was done. they seemed pleased. maybe they didn't wish there was better or that but that is typically. >> i love going back through history too. despite that everybody remembers the robert duran and sugar ray leonard and fought three times. you go into the second fight where robert duran says -- >> that was the one. >> there was controversy when he said no moss because there was question whether he had a stomach ache? >> he said he had eaten too much and he had a stomach ache. and then his -- he even says that he never said no moss. somebody picked it up. >> it has become -- >> exactly, exactly. that's what it was. >> what did you like with ray
8:47 am
arcel? the relationship he has with robert duran. he talks a lot about his mental fitness, not only his physical fitness. >> he was a cerebral guy, ray arcel, from what i found out. but very, you know, emotional about duran and about his fighters. he had over 20 champions and so, you know, he was a disciplined and as far as not eating certain things and taking care of himself and so on. this was his last great fighter. >> back to you. your daughter actually played your daughter in the movie? >> yes. >> what was it like working with her? >> it was good. >> a lot of pressure for her? were you easy on her? >> no i think that -- jonathan, the director, he likes to use people that he needs or, you know, some directors people they feel comfortable with and there is a built-in relationship of
8:48 am
sorts. not really our relationship but there is something there. there is a comfort level and all that. i understand in some ways, i, as a director only two movies i did, but that somehow had the inclusion of done it here and there were people that contributed. a nice thing. >> as somebody who knows perhaps as well as anyone, what boxing is and cinematically what it can can be. what was it like returning to the sport? why does the fight resonate so much? >> it's an ultimate match between two people. nothing going to go past that. but, you know, i was interested -- it wasn't so much the fighter thing. of course, duran, his story is a great fighter. i just happened to have known him during that period also, spent a little time together
8:49 am
during the no most is period before that. i like the story the father/son type thing with ramirez and that relationship, i think, is very important. >> well done. best of luck to you. >> robert de niro, always a pleasure to have you here. >> thank you. >> "hand of stone" is now in theaters. coming up, riders try to "swamp" the competition. that is next on "cbs this morning."
