tv MSNBC Live With Hallie Jackson MSNBC October 24, 2016 10:00am-11:01am PDT
mitchell reports" live from saint anselm in manchester, new hampshire. remember, follow the show online on facebook and on twitter. now down to hallie jackson live in st. augustine, florida, here on msnbc. hall hallie? >> hi, andrea. no scars needed where we are. a little bit better weather in beautiful st. augustine here on the campaign trail because donald trump will be here two hours from now. right now we are keeping an eye on the neck of the woods where andrea was. we expect hillary clinton and elizabeth warren to be campaigning together. not just a play for a big election night victory for clinton but a push for down ballot democrats just 15 days from now. when you look at the battleground bonanza you have clinton in new hampshire, trump in florida and though he's down double digits nationally within the last 90 minutes trump said he feels very good about his chances here in the sunshine state. florida make or break for him with three rallies today and tomorrow.
in north carolina, that's the other place where his campaign is making a major play. a new poll out minutes ago this hour shows the race there getting closer. clinton leading by just one point. we have a lot to get to. let's bring in the team of road warriors on the trail. we have andrea mitchell, kasie hunt looking ahead to that event in new hampshire. i want to start with you before going to andrea. what are you looking at when we see hillary clinton take the stage with elizabeth warren. we'll be sharing the stage together. what does the clinton campaign hope to gain from this? >> hey, hallie. new hampshire has been a place that's been up and down for hillary clinton. she lost it big to bernie sanders in the primary. that's part of why she's here today with elizabeth warren in particular trying to turn out young people, trying to get a progressive base more excited about coming to vote for her. she's here because there is a senate candidate running here.
maggie hassen is somebody the clinton campaign thinks if clinton has particularly long coat tails might be able to win the senate seat away from kelly ayotte, the republican. there is just a great deal of confiden confidence. clinton talked to the press on the plane nd a seems happier to be there than she has in other instances where she's spoken to the press. the focus is on her with some of the down ballot candidates. that says a lot about the confidence they feel in these final days of the election. the challenge for her in new hampshire, this is a state that has been historically independent. it's flipped back and forth and back and forth.
it has been one of the most competitive states with north carolina and even florida. as the national polls start to seem more durable they are feeling more confident that they can win here and pick up another senate seat. >> i want to ask andrea about that. do you think the campaign is feeling over confident? i got off the phone with a source close to the trump campaign who said, yes, trump's emphasis will be florida, north carolina. he's eyeballing nevada and new hampshire specifically. is there a risk that the clinton campaign is getting over their skis a little bit? >> it ain't over until it's over. the fact is there is a new monmouth poll that you may have that shows them a point apart. tied in north carolina. there is a lot of noise around me. i hope you can hear me. the loud speakers are near me. they are trying to organize the ground game.
aside from florida, the ground game, 5-1 advantage in terms of paid and unpaid staff from hillary clinton and democrats and dnc over the republicans. so they've got a lot of advantages in terms of money, in terms of paid ads. they've got the down ballot candidates they are now campaigning for and while they are confident they've got reason to be confident. the only thing i think they were worried about and should be is wikileaks. they don't know what's about to hit them. every day there is another data dump and none of it is flattering. it's not getting as much attention. >> we can hear you fine, andrea. it's loud where you are. you can probably hear the church bells behind me at the top of the 1:00 hour. we are dealing with life on the road. on wikileaks you had a chance to have a conversation with madeleine albright within the last hour. talk to me about the headlines from today with the latest
wikileaks dump. >> with madeleine albright we kept referring back to she's concerned about russia's involvement in this which is the conclusion of the 17 intelligence agencies. that said, she is a strong supporter. she's campaigning in nine states so far for hillary clinton. the fact is substantively while they can't be verified by us that they were stolen and they can say the russians in the past altered documents, they certainly and it does look like the inner workings of the campaign trying to come to grips with things like things she said about the crash of goldman sachs where she really wasn't criticizing the banking community, the banking industry as much as they would like. here she's campaigning with elizabeth warren. they disagreed profoundly about the response to the crash but the great unifier for a lot of
democrats is donald trump and the controversy particularly about women in the last three weeks. hallie? >> speaking of donald trump as we look at the split screen we are seeing introductory speakers in new hampshire. it is our understanding in nine to 11 minutes we'll see senator elizabeth warren, hillary clinton taking the stage. in the meantime i want to go to kelly o'donnell who's been following both campaigns digging into transition team reporting. digging into a ramped up line from donald trump that the polls are phony, made up, that they don't show he's winning something trump said at a round table in florida earlier this morning. what's the strategy? does the campaign believe this is a compelling sell? >> it's interesting to be at the intersection of covering both campaigns. some of these things are more stark when you go back and forth between the two sets of advisers and teams.
and the voters. so for donald trump going after the polling is just another way of going after the establishment. we have seen his less than lukewarm affirmation of republican candidates when the party is desperate for him to try to help down ballot republicans. he can barely do that. we have seen him fighting against all things establishment. polling which is a core part of the election process which brings together different media groups who own this information collectively in some instances, public polling, campaign polling. all different methodology. he's made this argument that some of the polls are weighted too heavily with democrats. there are times and place where is the science behind polling may choose to waeight is number of likely voters not exactly 50/50 but a relex of the location they are polling or the times we are in. all those things. the science of polling is just
another thing that donald trump is trying to bring a sledge hammer to to shake the confidence of voters. why do that? we know the polling shows him behind. he wants to instill a degree of confidence kasie talked about on the clinton side into his voters who may be watching the coverage. may be sensing that trump is behind. hearing the acknowledgment from kellyanne conway, the campaign manager that they are behind. to try to keep his sort of field of voters who lifted him through the process willing to go to the polls if they have not early voted and to suggest that this is not over yet. this is not a bad strategy in terms of wanting to keep voters invested but going after the polls and nicking away at the credibility of polling really fits the donald trump personality we have seen even though it is so out of step with the type of professionalism that the polling companies bring to this. in some ways entirely
predictable. he just finally got around to hitting the polling, hallie, after smashing it just about every other establishment figure or group along the way. >> i think you're still with us. as we keep an eye out here for the governor joining hillary clinton and senator warren on stage, this feels like a play from the clinton campaign to woo women voters. is that an explicitly stated strategy to bring in the democrats warren might appeal to? give us the behind-the-scenes take on what we expect to see in a couple of minutes. >> a lot of them are suburban women. nashua, a bedroom community for
them. some voted for jeb bush or john kasich in the primary. it's one of the things that conce concerns primarily focused on the senate. there are more outside republican groups spending money. they are focused not only on the upper chamber. they are worried that a lot of them. if you want to be super nerdy about it. they are worried that those people won't go to the polls. they will stay home. that's part of the clinton campaign's calculus here. that's all the more likely that she'll pull out a win here in
the state. if they decide, hey, maybe this is the year they will split. not just voting for hillary clinton but also for maggie hassen because hillary clinton is excited about her, too. all the better. they are getting closer to the seats they need. a lot of the seats are running for them. you have deborah ross, katie mcguinty candidates she's pitched for in the last few days. upping the number of women in the senate in addition to being the first woman president is something the clinton campaign wants accomplished. i definitely think its sounds -- it comes across as personally important when you talk to aides about it on the plane. >> when you're talking with folks inside the campaign what's your sense of the mood now over the last 24 hours. today with new polling coming
out. how would you describe morale and the mood, if you will. >> morale is as good as i have seen it in the year and a half we have been covering the campaign. before she anountsed she was trailed by the private server controversy and all of the comments at the very awkward news conference at the u.n. security council. they thought they had beaten it down and they were past that. it's trailed them ever since. now they feel after the last debate she's shaken something off. something important has happened. they think they beat donald trump in the debates. two weeks and a day out they
feel she's much more likely to be the next president of the united states. i can tell you from having covered her for 25 years now, there is a growing expectation about the historic nature of that which is not front and center in the campaign. if it happens once it happens we are all going to see it coming out as well. we'll ask you to stick around after they take the stage. we'll talk more about trump. we'll stick with the democratic side. the chief strategist for priorities usa action. the main super pac supporting hillary clinton. guy, thanks for being with us. >> thanks for having me. >> andrea said she ables that morale is the best she's seen it inside the clinton campaign in a year and a half of covering the campaign cycle. as somebody inside in 2008 what's keeping you up at night
two weeks and a day out of the election? >> it's our responsibility now to make sure that the polls become reality in terms of actual votes. we see the results of a large comprehensive turn out. in fact i got a report in nevada this hour that democrats have an 18-point advantage from the first two days of early voting. we see similar improvements in places like florida and north carolina. our responsibility now is to do everything we can to make sure we are turning out the vote in every battleground state and that we are helping down ballot in house races so hillary has something they can do at every level. >> we see hillary clinton come out with business let warren. sbro stay with us. you brought up the down ballot
races that are a priority. you see it similarly on the republican side albeit for different reasons. when you are looking at a race like the one in pennsylvania where there is pat toomey. where do you see vulnerabilities on the democratic side. how many seats do you think you can flip? >> i think it is likely that democrats will take back the senate. in large part not just because of donald trump. i think that will be a huge factor in places like the suburbs of philadelphia, manchester or in the research triangle. there are people up and down the ticket. we have seen in states with early voting a higher percentage of democratic women and women across the board turning out. we'll do everything. we are actively advertising against donald trump and kelly ayotte in new hampshire. >> you talk about the fact that donald trump played a part in
essentially putting the senate in play. despite his unfavorability ratings when you look at the polling numbers why aren't they doing better in down ballot races. >> many of our candidates lag hillary in terms of the name i.d. and if you look at the last two or three weeks they address the challenges. you see a recent poll in new hampshire that has maggie hassen leading kelly ayotte. you see improving numbers for the senate candidate down there and in nevada we have seen consistent improvement from catherine cortes masto. this is a normal process of last minute voters engaged at all levels. let's keep in mind that donald trump has dominated the air waves and not allowed down ballot races to get the attention they normally would even in a presidential year.
democrats need to stay focused for two weeks and a day doing everything we can to help every democrat on the ballot from state legislature up to president. >> we are taking a look at hillary clinton on stage in manchester, new hampshire. you just saw andrea mitchell. kasie hunt reporting. i want to talk about georgia, a state where i believe you put in a 2 million ad buy. trump with the edge there by a couple of points. do you think you can flip georgia. is this for real? or is this to psych out the trump campaign. >> we don't believe in those head fakes. we'll do what we can on the ground and on the air in georgia to put it in play. it's been close before. we have a growing african-american and hispanic community. we also have the rapid expansion of the suburbs around atlanta which are prime for a message
opposing donald trump. leaders like stacy abrams who have been registering voters who are primed to turn out voters across the state. there is no question that it is not in the same place as pennsylvania or florida. it is a state where we can be competitive and potentially win. >> when you are looking at something else in the headlines over the last couple of weeks that's the wikileaks release of stolen e-mails. how damaging long term do you see it as being as folks inside the political universe are reading these, parsing them, picking them apart. could it potentially hurt hillary clinton's relationship with different progressive or liberal groups? >> i don't think so. i don't think it is a particular surprise to anybody that political operatives are talking about politics in e-mails and anybody knows we have a lot to accomplish over the course of the next two weeks.
it's a little bit salacious, interesting. beyond that i don't expect much of an impact on her relationship over the course of the first term. >> if you are giving advice to the clinton campaign about what to do what would it be? >> knock on every door you can. make every phone call you can. hit every battleground state you can. one thing i like about what the clinton campaign is doing is striking the balance between helping down ballot races. we have seen it over the last couple of days. we have seen it in indiana where there is a senate race. also they are continuing to focus on priority one. making sure hillary wins. our job isn't just to get to 270. our job is to make sure hillary wins in as many places with as many people with as big a margin as possible to go into the first
term with a governing majority in the house, senate and governor's races around the country. >> thanks for joining us. we appreciate it. keeping an eye on the other part of the screen at the rally happening now in manchester, new hampshire. meanwhile we are in st. augustine. any minute we expect senator elizabeth warren in the red there speaking along with secretary clinton. after the break we'll bring it to you live. jack be le, jacke quick, ck knocked or a candlestick onto thag rping... jack be le, jacke quick, ...a pants iited tolames, causing hito stop, drop a roll. luckily jack receny d ichelp e tolames, uss belogs we uin f ja got fl replacemen uss band hanew pas he ord fr banreblic.
>> with someone who gets up every single day and fights for us. someone who has spent her life fighting for children, spent her life fighting for women. spent her life fighting for families, fighting for health care, fighting for human rights, fighting for a level playing field, fighting for those who need us most. hillary clinton fights for us. it is now time for us to fight for hillary. i want to talk about values. i grew up in a family that didn't have much. my dad sold fencing and carpeting, ended up as a maintenancen ma. after his heart attack my mom worked a minimum wage job at sears to keep the family above water. all three of my brothers went into the military. i just wanted to be a teacher. all my life i wanted to be a teacher. can we hear it for america's
teachers? [ cheers and applause ] >> yeah. i had the calling early on. i used to line up my dolls and teach school. it was tough being one of my dollies. i don't think you did your homework last night. it was tough. it was tough. my parents would have given me everything they could. they didn't have the money to send me to college. the only way i could get to be a teacher is i ended up at a commuter college that cost $50 a semester. it opened a million doors for me. the way i see it, i am the daughter of a maintenance man who ended up as a united states senator. hillary clinton is the daughter of a factory worker, grand daughter of a factory worker. she's going to be elected president. we believe in that america. that is the america we fight
for. we believe but we are worried. worried that those opportunities are slipping away. in fact, a lot of america is worried and angry. angry that far too often washington works for those at the top and leaves everyone else behind. for 30 years now republicans have pushed trickle-down economics. they have done one thing. they have helped the rich and powerful get richer and more powerful. they have stepped on the faces of everyone else who is trying to get a fighting chance to succeed. donald trump talks a big game about how the game is rigged. let's be clear. donald trump is right. the game is rigged. it's rigged for guys like donald trump. and i say it's time to fight back. maggie says it's time to fight back. hillary says it's time to fight
back. we start our fight right here on college campuses. education builds opportunities. people were getting crushed by student loan debt. now it is a one-two punch. the high cost of college and the high coast of student loans. the federal government is making billions of dollars in profits off the backs of our students. it is obscene to make money off people who are trying to get an education. i want to be clear on this. we know where kelly ayotte stands. she voted against refinancing your student loans. [ booing ] and donald trump? we know where he stands on higher education. you know, colleges need more money to bring down the cost of tuition. his plan is to get rid of all
federal student loans, abolish the department of education. i think his plan is to set up another fake university, cut out the middleman and cheat the students directly himself. that's why we fight back. [ cheers and applause ] look, college alone is reason enough to get out and vote. it is reason enough to get out and volunteer. hillary and maggie and i are determined to make debt-free college the law of this land. that's where we are. we are determined to refinance that 1.3 trillion dollars in student loan debt. yes. help us do that. help elect hillary and maggie so we can make college a pathway of opportunity. not just for rich kids, but for all of our kids.
yeah! [ cheers and applause ] >> that's senator elizabeth warren on stage with hillary clinton in manchester, new hampshire, happening right now. warren, you heard making the case not just for clinton but for governor maggie hassen and a number of vulnerable democrats trying to challenge the vulnerable down ballot senators. i want to bring in kasie hunt at the rally. when hillary clinton starts to speak we'll check in, monitor and bring it live. talk about what's behind the strategy to have elizabeth warren campaigning. the two of them appeared together. it was a real moment in the campaign. are they trying to generate more of the moments for hillary clinton to try to mobilize the progressive wick of the party? what's your sense? >> well, hallie, elizabeth warren is somebody who tapped in to the progressive wing of the democratic party in a way that hillary clinton struggled to.
obviously bernie sanders won big here in new hampshire in the democratic primary. it was turf that was friendly to her husband when he ran and made him a comeback kid. there was a lot of personal hurt about how the primary tushed out this way around for her. obviously bringing elizabeth warren here is an important part of trying to make sure they motivate progressives who might not be excited to get out and vote for hillary clinton. she also, of course, is from a neighboring state, massachusetts. this is an audience she talks about top of her remarks being able to root for the patriots. that can't hurt either. this is really about getting people excited in that way. the other thing we should mention is this drip, drip, drip of wikileaks. the stolen e-mails from john podesta's personal account released by wikileaks. we haven't authenticated them. the u.s. government said it is a russian hack. one thing we have learned from
it is there was a lot of back and forth among the top clinton aides saying sometimes not so flattering things about the progressive wing of the party. i think over the long term that's going to be potentially a risk for them. having them on the trail, whether it's elizabeth warren, bernie sanders, whoever is somebody that could smooth that over and remind them they are on the same team. there is a reckoning to be done after this is over. >> kasie hunt doing a brilliant job modulating her voice based on the cheers and the volume of the speakers behind her. we'll check in with you after we see hillary clinton in new hampshire. i want to bring in a trump surrogate, chairman of the american conservative union joining us live. matt, i think you had a chance to listen in to the remarks from senator elizabeth warren. when you look at that, it's striking to me there are a
number of surrogates. people she can appear with. occasionally his children. eric trump, dond jr. is there a surrogate deficit that's a problem in the trump campaign? >> i don't think it is a problem. it is a great advantage. for hillary clinton it's important that she had the progressive voices. the democratic party is the party of the progressive base of the party. it is important she had them out there. in terms of donald trump's campaign what we have seen with trump is he's the main message deliverer for himself and his campaign. that's the way he likes it. it's effective because he's running as the republican nominee but has an independent voice. he appeals to the types of voters that republicans had a heck of a hard time reaching out to. the working class voters that are so important. >> you talk about trump being an
incredibly effective messenger. we have 15 days until the election now. i read with interest your piece over the weekend. you made the argument of why trump is still in this. you write one of the reasons is a new poll from investors business daily. if you look at the polls in the last couple of weeks it's lopsided. trump has rasmussen which doesn't meet the standards for nbc. look at clinton leading in so many others. is this polling trutherism? what would you say if it was the reverse? >> let's call them like we see them. i think you started off the segment -- >> we are calling them like we see them. >> that's good. i think you started by saying hillary clinton had a double digit lead. there is one poll over the weekend, the abc news poll that shows her up 12 points. if you look at the average of many polls they will show you that donald trump is down but it's more like five or six points. if you look at the last three presidential races it was the
investors business daily poll. it has the race essentially tied. what we are seeing is if you look at them together i would say donald trump is down. he's the under dog. i don't think it's down so dramatic he can't win the race. the race will tighten. of course let's be honest. it depends on what's inside the e-mails. there was another dump of the wikileaks. this race is incredibly dynamic which is why i think the american people are paying attention so closely. >> the average is 6.1 percentage points. half an hour i was talking about the trump campaign. real talk. two, maybe three points nationally you can make up. when it gets to be five, six, seven that's insurmountable. do you share that view? >> i don't know who you were talking to. usually with republican campaigns and i obviously worked for president george w. bush.
i was involved in both campaigns. usually republicans headed into election day you worry if you have a couple of points to make up. usually the democratic ground game is stronger, tougher. the early vote game is tougher. we worry if we are going into election day down. the strange thing about donald trump's candidacy is i feel he could be down going into election day and still win. the main reason is the enthusiasm gap. people supporting donald trump are very enthusiastic about it. hillary clinton has the base of supporters. they are less so. of course she has the lagging problems with people who feel she's part of the washington scheme we want to see changed. for the first time in a long time they could make up a short deficit. >> before i let you go i want to drill down on that. i hear it from a lot of them.
when you look at the numbers, one poll that came out here the number is lower for republicans. it's 8 in 10. generally i think back to 2012. romney was pulling in 30,000 people two weeks before election day. tons of enthusiasm. look how it worked out for him? what's different now. why should it be different for donald trump? >> this is the opposite. what's the percentage of democrats for hillary. it is a high percentage. you're saying it accurately. how enthuse yat tick are they. no matter what happens, will they get the neighbors to vote? will they advocate for her? donald trump has a bigger problem with the party. he has double digit leads with conservatives. they are much more enthusiastic than she is. the crowd sizes are two, three times bigger. he's done two and three times the number of events.
i don't think you can just look at events. but if you put it together there is no question she has an enthusiasm gap which is why she's trying to generate enthusiasm with things like today. >> elizabeth warren on stage said something along the lines of we nasty women will march our nasty feet to cast our nasty votes, basically appropriating what donald trump said. was that a mistake for donald trump to call hillary clinton a nasty woman? >> i have five daughters, a wife and a bunch of sisters. the ones who can are voting for donald trump. sometimes he says things off the cuff. that's one of his things that people like. he's authentic but sometimes it gets him into trouble. that got him into trouble. he'll have to take the consequences for it. at the end of the day there are lots of women who look at the state of the economy and look at the national security. they are worried about the state of the country. >> trump campaign surrogate
thank you very much for being here. >> thanks for asking. >> sure. we are waiting for hillary clinton to take the stage. there out of manchester, new hampshire. we'll bring it to you live. stick around.

breaking news now. we are seeing hillary clinton ready to take the stage in manchester, new hampshire. one of the battlegrounds donald trump is trying to play hard in in addition to places like nevada, must wins include north carolina where a new poll out this hour shows clinton with a very slim one-point lead. trump will be here in florida with three or four rallies over the next 36 hours here. one is in st. augustine where we are located now. that will happen in an hour and 15 or 20 minutes. let's listen in now. hillary clinton taking the stage, beginning to speak after senator elizabeth warren introduced her. >> it really does demonstrate that americans are looking at what's at stake and are coming to the conclusion that we all have to be involved. involved in the remaining days of the campaign and then everyone needs to turn out to vote. here in new hampshire we have a lot of reasons to vote.
you've got great candidates for the congress, annie custer and carol shay-porter who deserve your support. [ applause ] and you've got a great candidate for governor, colin van ostren, thank you. [ applause ] maggie and elizabeth and i have been out here given the full dose. i hope you will also make sure people know what's at stake in the governor's race and in sending these two extraordinary women to the house. boy, it is exciting to be here with maggie and elizabeth because they are people who fight for you. every single day. i know both of these women. and it is a privilege to be on this stage with them. now elizabeth warren has a track record of making it her mission
to stand up against wall street. she's going to make sure that wall street never wrecks main street again. [ applause ] but you may not know that she was the person behind setting up the agency that protects consumers. the consumer financial protection bureau. it was set up to stand against and do something about the kinds of fraud and abecause we have seen from wells fargo. and they are on the front lines of returning billions of dollars to americans who have been cheated and defrauded by big companies, by banks and others. i think it is fair to say some of the best tv you can see is on c-span when elizabeth is going after a bank executive or a
regulator. she's refusing to let them off the hook. she's not just speaking for herself, is she? she is speaking for every single american who is frustrated and fed up. i am so looking forward to working with her to rewrite the rules of the economy to make sure we both grow it and make it fairer for every single person working hard here in america. we can't check tweets. i kind of expect if donald heard what she just said he's tweeting away. she gets under his thin skin like nobody else. [ cheers ]
whether she's calling him out about the mysterious tax returns, she exposes him for what he is. temperamentally unfit and totally unqualified to be president of the united states. [ cheers and applause ] and maggie is going to be a great united states senator for new hampshire. you know, you don't have to take my word or elizabeth's word. look what she's already done. under maggie's leadership, new hampshire has the lowest unemployment rate in the entire country. during her governorship it was ranked as the best state in the country for business. she's done it the new hampshire way. she has brought people together. democrats, republicans and independents.
she has the biggest legislature probably in the world that she has a deal with. so she has really honed her skills about listening and trying to work with people. she's taking on issues that really do keep families up at night from the skyrocketing costs of college and prescription drugs to helping students figure out ways to afford, to get their education, to helping those suffering from addiction or mental health to raising wages for hardworking families. what i love about maggie is that she's independent. she knows how to find common ground and how to stand her ground. and that's exactly the kind of leader we need in the united states senate. we've got to break through the grid lock and the dysfunction that has unfortunately marred
washington. we've got to get back to listening respectfully. we can disagree without being disagreeable. that's why we need leaders like maggie. unlike her opponent she's never been afraid to stand up to donald trump. she knows he shouldn't be a role model for our kids or for anybody else for that matter. i hope in the next 14 days you do everything we can to support her. i want to say a word about colin who i have also known for a number of years now. maggie is leaving some big shoes. she doesn't look like it, but she is. she's leaving big shoes to fill as governor. colin is the person for the job. you know, as a member of the executive council and i remember this. it took guts. he helped lead the fight to protect funding for planned parenthood in new hampshire.
against his opponent, by the way. he's shown that he'll stand up for women's health 100% of the time. not just when it is politically convenient. he also worked with maggie to cross party lines to help expand medicaid to more than 50,000 granite staters. colin wants to do more to invest in clean energy like wind and solar, to hold down energy costs, to create more good jobs in new hampshire and to protect the beautiful environment of this state. and he will fight to put into action the promise of higher education within reach for more families. so, please, during these next days, make sure you are doing everything you can for colin, for carol and for annie. [ cheers and applause ] did anybody see the last debate?
you know, i stood next to donald trump in three debates for four and a half hours proving once again i have the stamina to be president. i tried to use the time i had in all three to talk about what people talked to me about. starting here in new hampshire and going across the country. i take it very seriously. i think the problems that keep you up at night that stand in the way of your getting ahead and staying ahead, of providing the best opportunity for a rising income for you and your kids. those are the problems someone running for president should actually listen to. paid attention to. coming up with solutions for. you know, i have a lot of plans. i do.
i get criticized for having so many plans. tim kaine and i have written a book. oh, there's a copy right there. it's called -- oh, another copy! it's called "stronger . and you know i have this old fashion idea that if i am here asking for your vote to be your president, i should tell you what i am going to do. and, maybe as i said yesterday in north carolina, maybe it is a bit of a woman's thing because we make lists. [ applause ] [ cheers ] >> we do. we make lists. we try to write down what we are supposed to do and cross them off as we go through the day and the week. i want you to think of our plans
as our lists, our lists as a country. we are beginning to get that those that work for me and make college available, lower prescription drug costs and we'll do everything we can to keep faith of what we have said what we are going to do. we are going to try to deliver results for you. donald said something truly horrifying. he became the first running for president, republican or democrat, who refused to say that he would respect the results of this election. now --
[ crowd booing ] >> i am not going to try to call it anything else. that's a direct threat to our democracy. i got to tell you as your secretary of state, i went to 112 countries. i went to countries where people were jailed for being political opponents or exiled and killed. for me, the peaceful transfer of power is one of the things that make your country great. [ applause ] something we cannot lose or something we should not even
doubt. at the moment when donald trump is making this unprecedented attack on our fundamental values and institutions, millions of people are standing up for democracy. registering and volunteering, voting early -- [ applause ] so, when you get a little discouraged or you get frustrated by what you see in this campaign. we have just reached a historic mi milestone. more than two hundred million americans are now registered to vote. [ applause ] [ cheers ] and most exciting, that includes
after 50 million young people of the biggest number ever. [ applause ] now, you only see numbers like this when people are standing up for what they believe in. i am proud to see americans coming together and democrats and republicans and independence to reject hate and division. you know you are seeing that in new hampshire, too. we are more than our disagreements. we americans, there are so much more that unites us than divides us. i am proud to have the support of more than 150 republican leaders in this state who put country before party. [ applause ] >> but, this energy we are seeing is not just because of what we are against as important as it is. it is because of what we are
for. it is about fighting for a future where everyone counts. where everyone has a place and no one is left out or left behind. to me and i hope to you as well. this is about more than winning an election. it is about the kind of country we want for our kids and our grand kids. that's what this has to be about. [ applause ] it is about the lessons that we want to pass onto our sons and daughters. we believe that we should honor the men and women who fight for our country. that america is safer when we work with our allies to lead the world with strengths and intelligence. yet, my opponent atatacking a grieving gold star member who son died in iraq. he had no plans to defeat isis and last night, he tweeted that
the new effort under way to push the terrorist out of the key city mosul is already "a total disaster." that our country is "looking so dumb." imagine -- this is a guy who says he knows more about isis than the general, i don't think so. he's basically declaring defeat before the battle has even started. he's proving to the world of what it means to have an unqualified commander in chief. it is not only wrong, it is dangerous and it needs to be repudiated on november the 8th, here in new hampshire and across america. [ applause ] but, just in case you think this is new for donald.
it should not surprise you or anybody else and i will tell you why. he's been den graigrated americr decades. back in 1987, he spent a hundred thousand dollars on an ad in new york times criticizing president reagan. "the world is laughing at america." does that sound familiar? this is someone who roots for failure and takes glee in mocking our country no matter who our president is. now, that maybe who donald trump is, but this election is about who we are. and i want us to remember america is great because america is good. right? [ applause ]
as our wonderful first lady, michelle obama, said right here in new hampshire, wh"when they low, we go high" [ cheers ] [ applause ] this election poses a clear choice on the economy. when the middle class thrives america thrives. as elizabeth says, she's a perfect example of how that works in america. so am i and so as every one of you here. that's what i want for every single person especially young person in america. we are going to have elizabeth back in the senate but send maggie and carol and make the biggest investments of new jobs since world war ii. [ applause ] what does that mean? that means jobs and
infrastructures, our roads, tunnels and mass transits and water systems. there is a lot of great work to be done here. those are jobs cannot be exported. they got to be done right here in new hampshire and across america. i want to invest in advance manufacturing and there are, i know a lot of skeptics about that. we cannot compete in manufacturing anymore. i don't want to compete in low wage jobs, i want us to compete in high wage jobs. germany is exporter of advance manufacturing products. i want to compete with germany and machining and 3-d printing. i want to invest for on technology and research and yes -- >> hillary clinton at her rally in manchester where she appeared
with the senator. that wraps it up for our hour in beautiful saint augustine in florida. we are headed over now to trump's rally down the road from her. i will turn it over to kristen welker behind the desk today. >> hey, there halie, stick around. we have seen hillary clinton flexing her muscle in new hampshire. elizabeth warren hitting donald trump for a whole host of issues including calling the election cycle rigged. today, governor maggie -- a lot of women power out there on the trail aimed at all important women voters and discussing this with me, halie jackson, is live in saint augustine, florida. katy tur is in tampa, florida and
