tv First Look MSNBC October 20, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PDT
in all those seat backs, save one or two, is the debate. all those folks on that plane, i would love to hear the results of that informal poll. >> that warms my heart. you know what i mean? you know, people caring look, for everything i see has no respect for this person. >> well, that's because he'd rather have a puppet as president. >> no puppet. >> it's pretty clear -- >> you're the puppet. >> if there was even a time when he didn't get an emmy for his tv program three years in a row and he started tweeting that the emmys were rigged against him. >> should have gotten it. i didn't even apologize to my wife, who's sitting right here, because i didn't do anything. i didn't know any of these women. i didn't see these women. >> my social security pay control contribution will go up, as will donald's, assuming he can't figure out how to get out
of it, but what we want to do is to replenish the social security trust fund. >> such a nasty woman. >> it was a fiery final showdown between the 2016 presidential candidat candidates, and there's already fallout this morning as donald trump said he refused he would accept the election. and turkey is claiming to have carried out air raids just north of aleppaleppo. and an investigation under way in new york city after a mentally ill woman was shot to death by police. according to the city's mayor, it should never have happened. ♪ good morning to you. it is thursday, october 20th. i'm betty nguyen along side alex witt and louis bergdorf. it was a brutal night in vegas
for the final debate. the candidates broke tradition by not shaking hands before or after the debate, which largely centered on the issues, but ended in controversy as donald trump refused to follow his running mate mike pence and daughter ivanka saying he would recognize the outcome of the election. >> do you make the same commitment that you will absolutely -- sir, that you will absolutely accept the result of this election? >> i will look at it at the time. i'm not looking at anything now. i'll look at it at the time. what i've seen -- what i've seen is so bad. first of all, the media is so dishonest and so corrupt, and the pile on is so amazing. "the new york times" actually wrote an article about it, that they don't even care. it's so dishonest. they've poisoned the miebds of the voters. unfortunately for them, i think the voters are seeing through it. if you look at your voter rolls, you will see millions of people that are registered to vote, millions. this isn't coming from me. this is coming from pure report and other places.
millions of people that are registered to vote that shouldn't be registered to vote. so let me just give you one other thing. i talk about the corrupt media. i talk about the millions of people. tell you one other thing. she shouldn't be allowed to run. it's -- she's guilty of a very, very serious crime. >> sir, there is a tradition in this country -- in fact, one of the prides of this country is the peaceful transition of power and that no matter how hard fought a campaign is that at the end of the campaign the loser concedes to the winner -- not saying that you're necessarily going to be the loser or the winner, but that the loser concedes to the winner and that the country comes together in part for the good of the country. are you saying you're not prepared now to commit to that principle? >> i will tell you at the time. i'll keep you in suspense. >> hillary clinton had a stern rebuke for trump's defiance on accepting the election's outcome. >> let me respond to that because that's horrifying. you know, every time donald
thinks things are not going in his direction, he claims whatever it is is rigged against him. the fbi conducted a year long investigation into my e-mails. they concluded there was no case. he said the fbi was rigged. he lost the iowa caucus, he lost the wisconsin primary. he said the republican primary was rigged against him. then trump university gets sued for fraud and racketeering. he claims the court system and the federal judge is rigged against him. there was even a time when he didn't get an emmy for his tv program three years in a row and he started tweeting that the emmys were rigged against him. >> should have gotten it. >> this is a mind set. this is how donald thinks. and it's funny, but it's also really troubling. >> donald trump's answer on the debate stands in contrast to what his surrogates have said, but it also clashes with his own words from just 3 1/2 weeks ago during and after the first
debate. >> will you accept the outcome of the election? >> i want to make america great again. i'm going to be able to do it. i don't believe hillary will. the answer is if she wins, i will absolutely support her. >> will you accept the outcome of the election? >> oh, yes, absolutely. >> some republican lawmakers in background states condemned donald trump's answer on accepting the election results last night. senator jeff flake of arizona tweeted, donald trump saying remight not accept the election results is beyond the pale. and senator lindsey graham said, during this debate, mr. trump is doing the party and country a great disservice. if he loses, it's not because the system is rigged but because he failed as a candidate. but trump's surrogates are likening his answer to another disputed race in recent history, the election of 2000, when a razor thin margin in florida led to a recount and democrat al
gore waited 36 days before conceding to republican george w. bush. >> you remember al gore in 2000? nobody says ahead of time that they're going to contest the election, but al gore did. for many days. in fact, he retracted his concession. it was pouring rain in austin. he conceded to george w. bush. then he retracted his concession and went all the way to the supreme court. >> he said he would not give in to whatever the result was if he didn't think it was fairly done. that's what al gore did. did he accept the results? he challenged the election. it was a very razor thin election, and he challenged it. >> if the election is too close, of course he wouldn't accept it. al gore didn't accept it, did he? >> we're not talking about it being too close. >> well, if it's a very big margin, then even if it's rigged, it wouldn't matter. but all that matters if it's a very small margin. >> donald trump also faced
questions about the women who have come forward in recent weeks accusing him of unwanted advances and sexual misconduct. trump accused both hillary clinton's campaign in having a hand in revelations and fame being the main motivation of his accusers. >> those stories have been largely debunked. those people, i don't know those people. i have a feeling how they came. i believe it was her campaign that did it. i would say the only way -- because those stories are all totally false. i have to say that. i didn't even apologize to my wife, who's sitting right here, because i didn't do anything. i didn't know of these women. i didn't see these women. the woman on the plane -- i think they want either fame or her campaign did it. and i think it's her campaign. i believe, chris, that she got these people to step forward. if it wasn't, they get their ten minutes of fame. but they were all totally -- it was all fiction. it was lies and it was fiction. >> during last night's debate, both candidates were asked to defend their plans on
immigration. trump touted his policies, including his plans to build a border wall. clinton said she wanted comprehensive immigration reform. >> i want to build a wall. we need the wall. the border patrol, i.c.e., they all want the wall. we stop the drugs. we shore up the border. one of my first acts will be to get all of the drug lords -- all of the bad ones, we have some bad, bad people that need to go out. once the border is secured, at a later date we'll make a determination as to the rest. but we have some bad hombres here and we got to get them out. >> i don't want to rip families apart. i don't want to be sending parents away from children. i don't want to see the deportation force that donald has talked about in action in our country. when it comes to the wall that donald talks about building, he went to mexico, had a meeting with the mexican president. didn't even raise it.
he choked. then got into a twitter war because the mexican president said we're not paying for that wall. so i think we're both a nation of immigrants and we're a nation of laws and that we can act accordingly. that's why i'm introduced comprehensive immigration reform. turning to syria now with breaking news overnight. turkey's state-run media says turkish jets hit 18 targets of u.s.-syrian backed kurdish militia members. as many as 200 militia members have been killed, although a kurdish leader says no more than ten fighters have died so far. they are a source of tension between the u.s. and turkey. the u.s. views them as a militia group effective in fighting isis, while turkey says it's a terrorist group that has carried out deadly attacks. meanwhile, the humanitarian pause has taken effect in aleppo. and german chancellor angela merkel and french montana
francois hollande both refused to rule out sanctions against russia. meanwhile, iraqi prime minister says forces are advancing on mosul, quote, faster than we thought. that as iraqi and peshmerga forces continue to liberate cities on their way to mosul. iraqi special forces have joined the fight, making a predawn advance on a village held by the terror group. this is viewed as a significant step as those troops are expected to lead the charge into mosul. meanwhile, french president francois hollande says there is evidence that isis militants are fleeing the city. nbc's matt bradley will be joining us short. last night, donald trump tangled with the moderator over comments made in the last debate over aleppo that chris wallace said were, quote, not true. >> you said several things in that debate which were not true, sir. you said aleppo has basically
fallen. in fact, there are -- >> it's a catastrophe. >> it is a catastrophe -- >> have you seen it? have you seen it in have you seen what's happened to aleppo? >> sir, can i finish my question? >> okay, so you haven't. it's fallen. >> there are a quarter of a million people being slaughtered. >> they are because of bad decisions. >> if i may finish. you also said syria and russia are busy fighting isis. in fact, they have been the ones who have been bombing and shelling eastern aleppo. they just announced a humanitarian pause, in effect admitting they have been bombing and shelling aleppo. would you like to clear that up, sir? >> aleppo is a disaster. it's a humanitarian nightmare, but it has fallen from any standpoint. what, do you need a signed document? take a look at aleppo. >> hillary clinton was also pushed on her support for a no-fly zone in syria, a move that president obama has rejected over concerns that it could escalate into a direct
confrontation with russia and syria. >> i think a no-fly zone could save lives and could hasten the end of the conflict. i am well aware of the really legitimate concerns that you have expressed from both the president and the general. this would not be done just on the first day. this would take a lot of negotiation. so i think we could strike a deal and make it very clear to the russians and the syrians that this was something that we believe was in the best interest of the people on the ground in syria. it would help us with our fight against isis. >> and when it comes to the u.s. assisted efforts in mosul, donald trump suggested that effort to retake the city from isis was time to help hillary clinton. >> so sad. we had mosul. but when she left, when he took everybody out, we lost mosul. now we're fighting again to get mosul. the problem with mosul -- and what they wanted to do is they wanted to get the leaders of isis, who they felt were in
mosul. about three months ago, i started reading that they want to get the leaders and they're going to attack mosul. whatever happened to the element of surprise? you know who the big winner in mosul is going to be after we eventually get it? and the only reason they did it because she's running for the office of president. they want to look tough. they want to look good. >> i'm just amazed that he seems to think that the iraqi government and our allies and everybody else launched the attack on mosul to help me in this election. but that's how donald thinks. you know, he always -- he's looking for -- >> chris, we don't gain anything. iran is taking over iraq. >> secretary clinton -- >> it's conspiracy theories he's been spewing out for quite some time. >> secretary clinton. >> still ahead, new jersey governor chris christie is heading to court next month over bridgegate. those details coming up. plus, much more from last
there are no bad suggestions here... no matter how lame they are. well said, ann. i've always admired how you just say what's in your head, without thinking. very brave. good point ted. you're living proof that looks aren't everything. thank you. welcome. so, fedex helped simplify our e-commerce business and this is not a passive aggressive environment. i just wanted to say, you guys are doing a great job. what's that supposed to mean? fedex. helping small business simplify e-commerce.
the deadly shooting of a woman in her new york city apartment has drawn condemnation from both the mayor and police commissioner. 66-year-old debra danner was shot twice in her apartment tuesday by a sergeant responding to a call of an emotionally disturbed individual. danner suffered from schizophrenia. her sister says police had been called to her apartment in the past. officials say danner had been armed with scissors and charged the officer with a bat while he was trying to coax her out of her bedroom. officials say it appears the officer did not follow some of the city's proper protocol. mayor bill de blasio and police chief james o'neal have vowed thorough investigations. >> it should never have happened. as simple as that.
it should never have happened. >> my message to all of the police officers in new york city is that we develop these policies and procedures for a reason. they're in place for a reason. they need to be followed. to the community, i pledge we're going to investigate this properly through the prosecutor's office and make sure we figure out what went wrong. >> commissioner o'neill there. the officer involved has been placed on modified duty. the benevolent association said berry acted in fear for his own life and the lives of others. the retrial in the etan patz murder case began yesterday. prosecutors called it a cautionary tale in a loss of innocence in opening statements in new york city. the suspect remained impassive throughout the proceedings. hernandez, who had been behind bars since 2012, previously confessed to the killing, although his lawyers argue he's mentally ill and it was a false confession. a jury was deadlocked last year. now 6-year-old etan patz
disappeared in 1978 on the first day he was allowed to walk to the bus stop alone. his body has never been recovered. new jersey governor chris christie may appear in court next month over the george washington bridge scandal. it's in response to a citizen's criminal complaint. this comes after a new jersey judge found probable cause of official misconduct against the governor. christie has never been charged in the case and denies any wrongdoing. governor christie's former press secretary said in court that david wildstein told him the governor was told of the shutdown three days in, this at a 9/11 ceremony in manhattan. christie's former deputy chief of staff bridget kelly may take the stand today. >> all right. time to get a check on weather with meteorologist bill karins. a lot of people feeling warmer temperatures. >> i know. back to reality. it was so strange. so warm for so long. areas of the northeast, it has cooled off considerably. now we have rain. this is the forecast over the next couple days. we have rain right now from oklahoma through missouri, st. louis, indianapolis, all the way
through much of ohio, western pennsylvania, and new york. you're going to get a lot of rain later on tonight and tomorrow. tomorrow is going to be a soaking rain. this is needed because of the drought. pittsburgh all the way to syracuse, 2 to 4 inches likely in this band in western pennsylvania and western new york. we'd like to get more of the rain through strl and southern new england where it's been very dry. looks like maybe half inch to an inch in this area. from new york city southward, doesn't look like much of anything. just showery drizzle. not the kind of rain you really need to fill up the streams and reservoirs. the cold front moves to the east. this is 9:00 a.m. this morning. the green and yellow show us where the rain is. we take you through the evening activities here. a steady light rain throughout the ohio valley at 7:00 p.m. heavier rains this evening. if you're thinking after-school activities, good chance of being rained out pittsburgh to buffalo to erie, all the way through syracuse and watertown included. by the time we go through the overnight into early tomorrow morning, the heavier rains move through central pennsylvania. by tomorrow evening, we should have a band of rain possibly from richmond to d.c. and heading right through areas of
central pennsylvania in upstate new york. again, the rainfall forecast will be plentiful in some areas but not everywhere. in the southeast, we still have a chance of getting record highs. >> enjoy it while it lasts. thank you. still ahead, what a year for cleveland. the indians are, as their fans say, windians. they're heading to the world series. all the highlights from major league baseball. that's next.
welcome back. time for sports and playoff baseball. to toronto, the blue jays down 3-1, hosting the indians in the american league championship series. ryan merit on the mound for cleveland in his second major league start. jose bautista earlier this week said the pitcher should fear the jays' lineup in game five. the rookie left-hander was unshaken. merit slung 4 1/3 scoreless innings before turning things over to the indians' fearsome bull pen. cleveland was on the board early last night, scoring on a fielding error after a double hit by mike napoli in the first inning. carlos santana and coco crisp each hit solo home runs. the indians head to their first world series since 1937. they will face either the cubs or dodgers. all right. let's go to los angeles. the dodgers hosting the cubs in

friday ahead of the team's season opener against the cavaliers on tuesday. alex? >> okay. thanks for not talking any further about the dodger game. >> it was a tough one for you. >> yep. >> that's all right. you can get them again. >> that's the attitude. still ahead, more from last night's third and final presidential debate, including fights over tax plans and which candidate is putin's puppet. plus, there were several top moments from the debate that had viewers turning into the interwebs. we have those details coming up next. every day starts better with a healthy smile. start yours with philips sonicare, the no.1 choice of dentists. compared to oral-b 7000, philips sonicare flexcare platinum removes significantly more plaque. this is the sound of sonic technology cleaning deep between teeth. hear the difference? get healthier gums in just 2 weeks vs a manual toothbrush and experience an amazing feel of clean. innovation and you. philips sonicare. save now when you buy philips sonicare. philips sonicare.

i've ever seen in any government whatsoever. and she always will be. >> he's unfit, and he proves it every time he talks. >> you are the one that's unfit. john podesta said you have terrible instincts. bernie sanders said you have bad judgment. i agree with both. >> well, you should ask bernie sanders who he's supporting for president. >> if you become president, this country is going to be in some mess, believe me. >> i'd be happy to compare what we do with the trump foundation, which took money from other people and bought a six-foot portrait of donald. i mean, who does that? >> donald trump and hillary clinton in their final debate showdown of the election, clashing over everything from the supreme court to putin and russia. >> and wikileaks dumps more hacked e-mails from the inbox of hillary clinton's campaign co-chairman, detailing concerns within the campaign of trying to, quote, turn her into something she's not. we'll have those details. plus, we're live in iraq this morning where the fight to drive out isis is sparking terror concerns in europe.
♪ hey there. good morning, everyone. it is thursday, october 20th. i'm alex witt along side betty nguyen. much of the night brought what other debates were missing, at times what could pass for a discussion over specific policy. the night's first section in particular served as a litmus test on key supreme court issues from the second amendment to abortion. >> i will be appointing pro-life judges. i would think that will go back to the individual states. >> but i'm asking you specifically, would you like -- >> if they overturned it, it'll go back to the states. >> i strongly support roe v. wade, which guarantees a constitutional right to a woman to make the most intimate, most difficult in many cases, decisions about her health care that one can imagine.
he even supported shutting the government down to defund planned parenthood. indeed, he said women should be punished, that there should be some form of punishment for women who obtain abortions. i could just not be more opposed to that kind of thinking. >> they also discussed their stance on regulating abortions performed in the third term of pregnancy. >> the kinds of cases that fall at the end of pregnancy are often the most heartbreaking, painful decisions for families to make. i do not think the united states government should be stepping in and making those most personal of decisions. >> well, i think it's terrible. if you go with what hillary is saying, in the ninth month you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby. now, you can say that that's okay, and hillary can say that's okay, but it's not okay with me. >> the last several months of
the race have at times been overshadowed by hacks on groups ranging from the democratic party to state-level governments, to john podesta's e-mails. u.s. officials are putting much of it at the feet of russian intelligence, and hillary clinton called on donald trump to answer to the spy craft last night. >> i actually think the most important question of this evening, chris, is finally will donald trump admit and condemn that the russians are doing this and make it clear that he will not have the help of putin in this election, that he rejects russian espionage against americans, which we actually encouraged in the past. >> that was a great pivot off the fact that she wants open borders, okay. how did we get up to putin? i don't know putin. he said nice things about many he. if we got along well, that would be good. he has no respect for her. he has no respect for our president. and i'll tell you what, we're in very serious trouble. because we have a country with
tremendous numbers of nuclear warheads. 1800, by the way. they expanded and we didn't. from everything i see, has no respect for this person. >> well, that's because he'd rather have a puppet as president. >> no puppet, no puppet. >> it's pretty clear -- >> you're the puppet. >> it's pretty clear you won't admit the russians -- >> whether it's russia, china or anybody else. she has no idea. >> do you doubt 17 military and civilian agencies -- >> i doubt it. >> he'd rather believe vladimir putin and the military and civilian intelligence professionals who are sworn to protect us. i find that just absolutely -- >> putin has outsmarted her at every step of the way. >> okay. under pressure from chris wallace, trump did condemn any state-sponsored cyber attacks. last month, the director of
national intelligence issued a release saying in part, quote, the u.s. intelligence community is confident that the russian government directed the recent compromises of e-mails from u.s. persons and institutions. now, donald trump wasted little time bringing up the leaked e-mails stolen from clinton campaign chairman john podesta, allegedly by these russian hackers. over 4300 e-mails were released by wikileaks yesterday with many more thousands expected to come out over the coming days. none has been authenticated by nbc news or the clinton campaign. among the messages, podesta's purported conversation with a staffer as clinton described herself as a moderate democrat. podesta wrote, she claims she didn't remember saying it, not sure i believe her. tanden wrote back, it worries me more she doesn't seem to know what planet we're all living in at the moment. then in another message, campaign separatrategist highli
the challenges at hand after clinton went from supporting tpp to opposing it. he wrote, hrc is more pro-trade and trying to turn into something she is not could reinforce the negative. >> and what began as a question on russia's involvement in the recent series of high-profile hacks quickly turned back to nuclear proliferation and u.s. allies. >> i find it ironic he's raising nuclear weapons. this is a person who has been very cavalier, even casual about the use of nuclear weapons. >> wrong. >> he's advocated more countries getting them. japan, korea, even saudi arabia. he said, well, if we have them, why don't we use them, which i thinking is terrifying. >> as far as japan and other countries, we are being ripped off by everybody. we're defending other kuccountr. we are spending a fortune doing it. they have the bargain of the century. all i said is we have to
renegotiate these agreements because our country cannot afford to defend many places. she took that as saying nuclear weapons. look, she's been proven to be a liar on so many different ways. this is just another lie. >> well, i'm just quoting you when you were asked about -- >> there's no quote. you're not going to find a quote from me. >> nuclear competition in asia. you said, go ahead, enjoy yourselves, folks. >> and defend yourselves. i didn't say nuclear. >> well, trump actually did make comments supporting nuclear proliferation for some u.s. allies, including during a conversation with chris wallace back in april. >> it's not like, gee wiz, nobody has them. north korea has nukes. japan has a problem with that. they have a big problem with that. maybe they would, in fact, be better off if they defend themselves from north korea. >> with nukes? >> including with nukes, yes.
including with nukes. >> south korea with nukes? >> south korea is right next door. just so you understand. >> but that's having a nuclear arms race in the korean peninsula. >> you already have it, chris. >> and the final question in last night's debate was on entitlement reform. hep ev even amid the policy discussion, the debate got, for lack of a better word, nasty. >> would president trump make a deal to save medicare and social security that included both tax increases and benefit cuts, in effect a grand bargain on entitlements? >> i'm cutting taxes. we're going to grow the economy. it's going to grow at a record rate. >> that's not going to help sbi entitlements. >> it's going to totally help you. another thing we have to do is repeal and replace the disaster known as obamacare. it's destroying our country. it's destroying our businesses, our small business and big businesses. >> i am on record as saying that we need to put more money into social security trust fund. that's part of my commitment to
raise taxes on the wealthy. my social security payroll contribution will go up, as will donald's, assuming he can't figure out how to get out of it. but what we want to do is to replenish the social security trust fund -- >> such a nasty woman. >> -- by making sure we have sufficient resources. that will come from either raising the cap and/or finding other ways to get money into it. i will not cut benefits. >> the discussion of foreign trade has received a prominent role in this election. last night was no different. hillary clinton was asked to account for her comments revealed by wikileaks in a paid speech to a brazilian bank in which he said her dream is a hemispheric common market with open trade and open borders. >> is that your dream, open borders? >> well, if you went on to be read the rest of the sentence, i was talking about energy. you know, we trade more energy with our neighbors than we trade with the rest of the world combined. and i do want us to have an
electric grid, an energy system that crosses borders. i think that would be a great benefit to us. >> my plan, we're going to renegotiate trade deals. we're going to have a lot of free trade. more free trade than we have now. i'm going to renegotiate nafta. if i can't make a great deal, we're going to terminate nafta and have new deal. we're going to make a great trade deal. if we can't, we're going to go a separate way. it has been a disaster. we're going to cut taxes mass e massivemassiv massively. we're going to cut business taxes massively. we're going to bring the $2.5 trillion that's offshore back into the country. we're going to start the engine rolling again because right now our country is dying at 1% gdp. >> well, let me translate that, if i can, chris. >> you can't. >> and donald trump has repeatedly claimed that hillary clinton has accomplished little to nothing over her 30 years in public service. she let that attack slide during the second debate, but last
night she seemed ready. >> i ask a simple question. she's been doing this for 30 years. why the hell didn't you do it over the last 15, 20 years? you were very much involved. excuse me, my turn. you were very much involved in everies a peck of this country. >> he raised the 30 years of experience. let me just talk briefly about that. you know, back in the 1970s, i worked for the children's defense fund, and i was taking on discrimination against african-american kids in schools. he was getting sued by the justice department for racial discrimination in his apartment buildings. in the 1980s, i was working to reform the schools in arkansas. he was borrowing $14 million from his father to start his businesses. in the 1990s, i went to beijing and i said women's rights are human rights. he insummlted a former miss universe, alicia machado, called her an eating machine. on the day when i was in the
situation room monitoring the raid that brought osama bin laden to justice, he was hosting "the celebrity apprentice." now to a big story overseas. iraqi and peshmerga forces continue to liberate villages from isis control on their way to mosul, this as iraqi special forces have joined the fight, making a predawn advance on a village held by the terror group. there are reports that refugees have begun fleeing mosul by the thousands. meanwhile, u.s. officials tell nbc news that hundreds of fighters could flee mosul and head to europe to launch attacks against the u.s. and its allies. joining us now, nbc news foreign correspondent matt bradley. is there any indication on when these advancing forces could reach mosul? >> reporter: well, alex, i can't tell you exactly when the push for mosul is going to come in, but i know the addition of the counterterrorism forces is a good sign. that means things are more or less on schedule. the counterterrorism forces have been lifting a lot of the weight here in the fight against isis.
in fallujah and ramadi earlier this year, they were the tip of the spear moving into the center of cities. so that means that their movement into the front lines just this morning indicates that we're going to start seeing an actual pressure around mosul. now, today could be a really big day for the fight. we're starting to see some of the peshmerga planning to liberate some of the christian villages to the north and to the east of mosul. these are actually some more heavily populated villages. that means we're actually going to start to see more refugees. we may start to see some slowing of the fighting. early on, just after this offensive was announced, it was a pretty fast love toward mosul. now we might start to see some real problems when it comes to dealing with some of the civilians. again, there's 1.2 million civilians in mosul. that's going to be a major issue moving forward. alex? >> very much a potential humanitarian crisis. matt bradley, thank you so much.

the showdown. what's going on this morning? >> yeah, hi, louis. they're saying that it's pricing in a clinton win. that's why we didn't see more reaction in the markets. when looking at some of the areas where we did see a little reaction, the mexican peso, for example, inching up a little bit immediately after the debate, having been slightly lower, sitting somewhere close to six-week highs. it's really seen this rally over the last couple weeks because the markets are pricing in a clinton win. the mexican peso would be at a disadvantage if trump wins, given some of the things he said about his position on migration and trade. not a lot of reaction seen in markets. u.s. equity markets being called a little higher once they open in a couple hours. you mentioned tesla. all of tesla vehicles, including the model 3, they're going to be having a self-driving hardware in the near future. elon musk saying they're making a big commitment to the technology. he didn't answer questions from reporters about how they're going to finance the cost of
