tv MSNBC Live With Andrea Mitchell MSNBC November 4, 2016 9:00am-10:01am PDT
from hines field in pittsburgh, home of the steelers. final blitz. two presidential candidates, one former president and the current vice president. four days before election day. goal line stand. hillary clinton in battleground pennsylvania this hour. pressing her closing argument against donald trump. >> he has spent this entire campaign offering a dog whistle to his most hateful supporters. he retweets white supremacists and spreads racially tinged conspiracy theories. >> personal foul. donald trump's first stop today, new hampshire. as he continues to hammer away at clinton. >> -- to be running, you know that. if she were to win it would create an unprecedented constitutional crisis that would cripple the operations of our
government. >> off the sidelines, melania trump making her solo debut on the trail but raising eyebrows with her theme in a campaign where her husband has been the king of personal attacks on twitter. >> our culture has gotten too mean and too rough. we have to find a better way to talk to each other, to disagree with each other, to respect each other. it will be one of the main focuses of my work if i'm privileged enough to become your first lady. good day, everyone. i'm andrea mitchell in the great hall of hines field. home to the six-time super bowl champion pittsburgh steelers, a team known through the decades for playing tough. a good metaphor for the
campaign. donald trump and hillary clinton are playing ugly on the campaign trail. clinton slamming trump while trump slanders clinton. we expect to hear from both candidates coming up later this hour. trump in new hampshire sensing opportunity after a string of state polls showing the granite state as a pure toss-up now. it really is in play. clinton here in pennsylvania, fighting to protect her election day blue wall. also this hour, five of the biggest names in american politics on the democratic side. bill clinton, bernie sanders and vice president joe biden all on the road for the clinton campaign. in arizona, the last two republican presidential nominees uniting to help john mccain hold onto the senate seat. joining me now, peter alexander in hershey, pennsylvania for donald trump's rally today and nbc's kristen welker, my partner here covering the clinton campaign with me in hines field and nbc senior political editor mark murray in washington. first to you. you are reporting on donald
trump's ten-state campaign strategy as he tries to peel off a blue state and somehow get past the barrier enough to 270. >> that's exactly right. he has to not only win the battleground states but was hoping to peel off some of the states now that are traditionally democratic states. while he has been chipping away at hillary clinton's lead she still maintains the advantages. in states like colorado, wisconsin, and michigan. an aide telling me that he's here in pennsylvania and so is hillary clinton. the aide says that's just evidence that the democrats are nervous that they have to protect the bluest of blue states. what i have been seeing that i think is striking is that of the three stops today and one yesterday, check out where he's going. he's going to heavily rural areas. areas that have large white populations. they are largely out of the way. yesterday he was in north carolina, a county that mitt romney won by 28 points last
year. today he will be in a county in new hampshire that mitt romney won by 8,000 votes. more than any other county in the state. when he heads to ohio today he'll head to a county mitt romney won by 35 percentage points four years ago. these are places where donald trump, his aides tell me, are trying to grow their support. they realize they are going to have challenges in the urban areas. they hope they can make up for it by having success in the more rural, more white areas. andrea? >> kristen, we were in north carolina yesterday with hillary clinton. she had a boisterous rally with bernie sanders. she's trying to solidify the base. her appeal, women on the economy. they've really got to turn it out on saturday night to wrap it all up. in pittsburgh in order to over come considerable donald trump
support. >> the strategy from the clinton campaign is to hold their ground in states where she's leading, where she's expected to win. this is obviously a reliably blue state though we consider it a battleground. you're right. she will be sharpening her attack attacks, talking about the economy with things like child care, paid family leave. the issues that matter so families. she's raising eyebrows going to michigan later today. democrats wondering if she's going to michigan. he had a big upset with bernie sanders during the primary. they are haunted by that. want to make sure it doesn't happen again. there are pockets going for donald trump. a lot of white porking class voters in michigan. they want to defend
their path to 270. not really -- you know, arizona obviously is a state that's reliably red. that's going to be her last stop. she'll be focused on it. >> i want to go to mark murray. let's pause while they sing the national anthem here. ♪ and the rockets' red glare the bombs bursting in air ♪ ♪ gave proof through the night that our flag was still there ♪ ♪ oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave ♪ ♪ o'er the land of the free ♪ ♪ and the home
of the brave? ♪ with cheers for the national anthem, mark, take us to the latest polls and what you are seening on the battleground poll. >> i have four polls, places where donald trump or hillary clinton are trying to go on offense or having to play more defense. out in virginia there is a new poll that has hillary clinton with a seven-point lead. virginia is a place donald trump, they might feel like they are going on the offense. as peter indicated to you, this isn't one of the states they will be visiting yet. this seems safe for hillary clinton. then let's go to arizona. this is a place where the clinton campaign really has been eyeing lately. hillary clinton had a big rally out in tempe, arizona. donald trump has a five-point lead in the marist poll. right now donald trump has the slight advantage there. as far as worrying states, there
is not only this poll showing it tied but several now polls showed a very close race in new hampshire which definitely would be in the clinton column over the summer into the early part of fall. then we'll end up going into georgia. this is a poll that we released yesterday, andrea. donald trump is only up one point in georgia which has always been a reliable, republican state. some danger points for both campaigns but also looking good for hillary clinton in the state of virginia. >> peter, i want to circle back about melania trump. that was surprising to people. the fact she said if she is the first lady of the land her focus would be to restore civility to the public discourse and to go up against cyber bullies. a lot of people thought maybe
she was speaking ironically. but in a campaign where donald trump has dominated twitter just today the first message i saw from him on twitter was "crooked hillary, question of the day." peter? >> i think that was definitely striking. it was delivered without irony. this was her first solo appearance on the campaign trail. out in the field last time she spoke publically in a forum like this was at the convention itself. this is a campaign where what she said went against the narrative. the message the clinton campaign folks are trying to deliver is donald trump doesn't have the temperament talking frequently about his willingness to others on twitter. melania trump came out and said the culture was too meanwhile specifically speaking about children. she delivered a good topic a lot of americans think is important.
whether or not you find it ironic, it is an issue americans agree we should be talking about. >> peter alexander, thanks so much. the other part of the state in hershey. next, the wife of the vice presidential nominee tim kaine. her take on the take of the campaign and what it's like to have been traveling the country. this is "andrea mitchell reports" on msnbc. the place for politics. live today from pittsburgh, pennsylvania. my name is barbara and i make dog chow natural.
now that i work there, i value the food even more. i feed it to yoshi because there are no artificial colors, preservatives and it's made with real chicken. i'm so proud to make dog chow natural in davenport, iowa. [baby talk] [child giggling] child: look, ma. no hands. children: "i", "j", "k"... [bicycle bell rings] [indistinct chatter] [telephone rings] man: hello? [boing]
[laughter] man: you may kiss the bride. [applause] woman: ahh. [indistinct conversation] announcer: a full life measured in seats starts with the right ones early on. car crashes are a leading killer of children 1 to 13. learn how to prevent deaths and injuries by using the right car seat for your child's age and size.
keeping the power lines clear,my job to protect public safety, while also protecting the environment. the natural world is a beautiful thing, the work that we do helps us protect it. public education is definitely a big part of our job, to teach our customers about the best type of trees to plant around the power lines. we want to keep the power on for our customers. we want to keep our community safe. this is our community, this is where we live. we need to make sure that we have a beautiful place for our children to live. together, we're building a better california. it makes me angry when people say hillary can't lead our country because she's a woman. how dare anyone question a
woman's ability? i want to see a woman break the presidential glass ceiling on november 8, guys. i want to see the glass shatter on the floor and i want us to stomp on it together. my mother is able, my grandmother, your niece, your daughters are able. i have seen amazing things happen when women lead. >> that was pharrell williams, the songwriter who was not singing "happy" last night. he was on the campaign trail in raleigh. we were there last night with bernie sanders. hillary clinton in battleground north carolina. delivering remarks, perhaps his first political speech. mark's really focused on women. thank you very much more joining them.
-- us. you can understand fully why we are here in pennsylvania. such an important state to deny donald trump. wisconsin through the blue zone he's trying to pick off. he's been in pennsylvania, will be in pennsylvania tonight. tell me how it feels to you. you are in utah which has been pretty much divided. a three-way race this time. >> yeah. well, it's beautiful to be out here, first of all, andrea. nice to be with you. salt lake is a great spot. i have had a wonderful opportunity to meet with local leaders here. i feel this is the first time in a long time that a democrat presidential candidate has a shot here. it feels good here and across the nation. it's going to be a close race.
aside from being the first lady. you're also a judge. i was in north carolina interviewing people from the naacp. about the voter suppression issue which is critical in north carolina. there is a case pending. they are waiting to hear back. tell me about the whole issue of trying to disenfranchise minority voters which is according to the president a key part of the strategy and other states. >> well, we are so blessed to live in a nation with a strong and robust democracy. yet we do have a history of not always making it easy for everybody to participate,
particularly african-american voters. the efforts of many to ensure safe and convenient opportunities for people to participate in this great democracy are extremely important. i'm not that worried about the voter suppression stuff. people forget how important it is. it will turn out. we are working hard to ensure that everyone's right to vote will be protected. >> you were in nevada. hillary clinton was there the other night trying to rally voters. when i was a young reporter your dad had just been the governor, the republican governor of virginia. virginia was a southern state embroiled in school desegregation issues. you and your sister, i believe, attended largely african-american schools. it was quite controversial for
you as a child. >> yes. one sister, one brother. my other brother was too young. but the three of us helped integrate the richmond city schools in 1970 when i was a 12-year-old. it was an honor and a privilege. my dad as a republican governor stood out from the prior southern governors' approach of massive resistance and said he wanted to help make virginia a model of race relations. it's been a long time, a bumpy path for virginia. we have moved a long way. we are proud of virginia welcoming diversity. >> i don't know if you have had time to absorb what melania trump was saying. certainly attacking an issue of cyber bullying which all of us could relate to for us, for our children. for the young people and old. do you see a sense of irony given the social media efforts -- personal efforts by her husband this year?
>> well, i haven't had a chance to watch melania's speech. i have just seen the headlines. i will say what i hear from teachers, educators across the country is actually quite sad that they are dealing with the issues with young 8-year-olds who are anxious about the election, who are hearing messages of meanness to others, contrary to what they have been hearing in school about how we are an inclusive community and how we are supposed to reach across and support each other. messages about how men treat women. i have heard from educators that it is a tough fall. >> if your husband and hillary clinton are fortunate enough to be elect ed on tuesday, how do you think they can heal the divide? this is one of the more toxic campaigns. probably the most i have covered in my years. >> you're absolutely right. that would be a number one
challenge. it's been part of what our lives have been about. we are a nation that we are stronger when we appreciate our different perspectives and that's different across gender, ethnicity and political perspectives in geography. there will be a need for real healing. not just on hillary and tim. it will be all of us figuring out how to come together. >> finally, i don't know if you have seen the facebook posts by one of your husband's former roommates when he came back from missionary work in central america. according to this former roommate, he wasn't very good at cleaning the bathroom.
he's my go to guy for errands around the house. he comes home from the senate on the whens and does my grocery shopping. we have been good partners. i wouldn't put him in charge of bathroom cleaning but he's been a good partner all along. >> thank you very much. i know how busy you are. great to catch up with you. coming up here, flashback friday. the 2008 and 2012 republican presidential nominees teaming up on the trail in arizona. you're watching "andrea mitchell reports" on msnbc, the place for politics, live from pittsburgh. [chains dragging]
[owl hoots] announcer: if you don't fix them, sparks from dragging tow chains can cause a wildfire. and that could be scary. bye, smokey! only you can prevent wildfires. but dad, you've got...tes are probably gonna double. allstate. with accident forgiveness they guarantee your rates won't go up just because of an accident. smart kid. indeed. it's good to be in, good hands.
what did the trump candidacy mean for the future of the republican party? bill crystal, editor of the weekly standard. thanks so much. first of all on the last weekend you've got mike pence now campaigning tomorrow with paul ryan and scott walker and others in wisconsin. a really important state, one of the blue states that they are trying to pick off. but no donald trump. the relationship between donald trump and paul ryan. what does that mean for the future of the republican party.
is it too late to move the ticket out? also showed the two most recent republican nominees, neither supporting donald trump, john mccain and mitt romney. george w. bush not supporting him either. the three most recent republican nominees not supporting trump. he thinks that's a virtue. that gets to your partner about paul ryan. a loyal supporter of bush and mccain. i think the split after november 8, assuming trump loses, between let's call them the paul ryan republicans and the donald trump republicans will be very great and fought out in a million different venues in the coming
weeks, months and years. >> she returned from an uplifting message to going hard against donald trump. her criticisms of trump and ads against him and him against her is she's using his words against him. it's more fact-based. that said, if she wins it's winning ugly. >> we are old enough to remember the conventional wisdom from campaigns. you want a close positive, you need it to get the voters out. they want to feel pretty good. this wasn't the year for it to happen. the clinton campaign will say they tried to go positive, lay out the agenda early on. the media didn't pay attention and the atmosphere was so toxic all they could do was disqualify trump and they continue to do
it. they could have a positive message. having said that they have done a good job -- well, trump has done a good job and the facts about trump capping his support around 44, 45%. i don't see it going above that honestly. the clinton people feel confident they are headed toward a three, four, five-point victory. they are not changing strategy at the end. >> you make a good point. on the road for a year and a half. for all the early months any time donald trump made a speech it was all the proposals she was putting out didn't get as much time. certainly not now in the closing days. how does anyone govern this country? i was talking to a democrat out here who is coming to the rally. showed me a picture of an atrocious, abusive hand-lettered
yard sign on a neighbor's lawn. he said, what do i tell my kids as we drive past? these people have a right to put abusive signs up. pro trump signs but going after hillary clinton in a personal way. how do we bring the country together? >> the winner on election day really has to try to reach out to reassure voters he or she hears the votes that went for his or her opponent. probably hillary clinton reassuring trump voters as much as she can. maybe put a republican in the cabinet again. still, it might mean something. there is a big responsibility on the loser to try to say, okay, the election is over. to say the election is over. let's pull together as a country and wish the country well. work together on things we can agree on. i don't expect donald trump to do it. puts a big burden on mike pence. i wish he hadn't done as much to accommodate and legitimize donald trump as he has. he has a moment on election
night and a week or two after to do something good for the country if trump/pence lose to say let's not continue this rhetoric post november 8. >> bill crystal, thank you very much. great to talk to you. thanks for being with us today. >> my pleasure. >> coming up, defending the fire wall. hillary clinton here in pennsylvania. trying to keep the midwest battleground states and pennsylvania in her column. this is "andrea mitchell reports" live from pittsburgh. then we are on to detroit and cleveland. redid you say 97?97! yes. you know, that reminds me of geico's 97% customer satisfaction rating. 97%? helped by geico's fast and friendly claims service. huh... oh yeah, baby. geico's as fast and friendly as it gets. woo!

contributor and founder of the washington post fix blog. and political reporter for the "new york times" and msnbc contributor. chris, fist rst to you. where do you see the opportunities? new hampshire would be a big one. it doesn't have enough electoral votes to make up for a loss in new hampshire. >> look. he needs ohio obviously. if we believe the data that's out there he'll probably get it. the next two he needs badly are florida and north carolina. there is a reason the clinton campaign is focused on those states in terms of visits and attention. if hillary clinton wins florida it gets very difficult for donald trump. if she wins north carolina it gets very difficult for donald trump. if she wins both it's over. you are talking about big states with a lot of electoral votes. i'm focused on those two. for every new hampshire, nevada,
iowa, those states more than make up for it. >> nick, you have been writing about veterans. donald trump trying to appeal to veterans with his attacks on hillary clinton's military and foreign policies. >> correct. i spent a few months talking to veterans for yesterday's paper. they feel very disconnected from a broader american public. they feel like attention is their problem as with the veterans separation has waned and the american people aren't paying much attention to the consequences of the foreign policies we embrace. donald trump in his strange way has come in there and talked to them, made them feel like he gets it, he wants to build a bigger military and play it more sparingly and aggressively, if that makes sense. they feel a connection to him despite feuding with the gold star family, despite remarks on
ptsd, despite all the things that would probably make you think he's not the best spokesman to the voters. he's doing well among them. >> at the same time he went off script last night. he was with medal of honor recipients, the greatest heroes we have. this is what he said. take a close listen. >> you know, when i look at the great admirals and the great generals and these great medal of honor recipients behind me. to think of her being their boss? i don't think so. they are so much more brave than me. i'm financially brave. big deal, right? these are real brave. >> to say that these medal of honor recipients can't imagine hillary clinton as their, quote,
boss, which doesn't understand what the commander in chief represent represents to the men and women in the military. as a woman and i think women listening to that would really think twice about it. nick, first to you. >> certainly, andrea, there is something gendered about that. i also think the military is by and large white and conservative. that's trump's core. i also think when you speak to veterans you often find they are very fixed on the e-mail issue. they worked in some cases with classified information and operational security as part of their training. they would often tell me in interviews they feel if they did half of what she had done they would have gotten in trouble. that's certainly the sentiment. they feel she's not an appropriate commander in chief.
>> that's contrary to what james comey said that she was careless but didn't violate laws. are we going to see something else in the closing days that will blow up the campaign? i would be a fool which many people may think i am. but a bigger fool to predict that we won't see something i don't expect. there are conflicting reports of how long it's taking what looks like a number of e-mails. i guess i'm skeptical. this campaign taught me never to be too surprised by anything. >> exactly right. chris cillizza, hardly a fool. one of the smartest people we know. thank you both so much. breaking news in new jersey
today. talk about election -- pre-election surprises. there has been a verdict. former top aides to chris christie, bridget anne kelly and bill baroni were found guilty on all counts in the bridgegate trial convicted of scheming to punish the democratic mayor of fort lee, new jersey, for not endorsing christie during his 2013 re-election campaign. wildstein pleaded guilty and has been cooperating with prosecutors. they have all testified that christie knew about the lane closings either before or while they were going on. chris christie who was going to be campaigning for donald trump in new hampshire and pennsylvania released a statement moments ago which read in part, let me be clear once again. i had no knowledge prior to or during these lane realignments and had no role in authorizing them. no believable evidence was
presented to contradict that fact. anything said to the contrary over the past six weeks in court is simply untrue. with only four days to go chuck todd joins us next. stay with us. this is "andrea mitchell reports" on msnbc from hines field today, the place for politics and i guess football live from pittsburgh. approve this message.
i could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot somebody and i wouldn't lose any voters, okay? and you can tell them to go f**á themselves. you know you could
see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever. you gotta see this, i don't know, i don't remember. he's going like 'i don't remember.' and you're talking to youro doctor about your medication... this is humira. this is humira helping to relieve my pain

four days to election day so what are they saying now? joining me now chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press" and host of mtp daily. what are you seeing in the jarome iginla if geography and the speeches of the candidates, how the differing strategies are teeing up the next few days. >> hard negative which is all about driving up the base. they are ending extraordinarily
negative. you wouldn't end this negative if they thought there were swing voters available. that's number one. you look at the geography and it's clear both campaigns are showing us where they believe this election is. donald trump basically nationwide blitz trying to hit as many states as he can. that's a sign of a candidate that's run out of path to 270 and hoping to find, well, maybe colorado. maybe michigan. he's looking for something. he knows right now where things stand he's sort of blocked off to 270. the clinton campaign, they are telling us exactly what they are worried about. african-american turnout. you know, they are not spreading out. everything is, if you look at her schedule it goes to a state, back to pennsylvania. goes to a state, back to pennsylvania. then what's monday night?
philadelphia, the obamas, the clintons, everything they are worried about this weekend is african-american turnout. we knee the strategy. trump is looking for a blue state he can make toss up or red. she's trying to drive up african-american turnout. >> also appealing in the speech today in pittsburgh to women. they really think it's african-americans, pittsburgh and philly trying to off set the white, rural, noncollege educated vote. they need the suburban republican women. they have to hold the philadelphia suburbs with the big margins they think they've got. talking to people here. life long democrats here at heinz field. their neighbors are all out there with yard signs for donald trump. >> the pennsylvania map may go democrat again on tuesday night.
the map in pennsylvania may look different. the traditional. we know it's usually for the democrats all about philadelphia and pittsburgh. for the republicans it's about keeping the margins down and hoping for the suburban vote. trump is doing much better than romney is in the western part of the state. in and around pittsburgh. but clinton has been over performing in those philadelphia suburbs. it's possible this really is a one media market state as far as clinton is concerned. i find it interesting. they are making one last attempt to see if they can fix the numbers in pittsburgh. pittsburgh and scranton, different sides of the state but area where is democrats have done well in the past. the joe biden democrat may be voting trump this cycle. i don't know if there are enough of them in pennsylvania to flip the state. >> what are you hearing from
nevada? hillary clinton was there. how is the hispanic vote or the labor unions holding for her? >> looks like when you look at clark county where las vegas is, looks like she's pilding up enough of a lead. we we eel get the final totals in. the one universal thing we have been able to glean from the early vote, especially looking at, i just picked four states here. they tell us a nice story because there is so much of it. nevada, arizona, florida, north carolina. a lot of vote to look at. we know the demographic make up of it. it's clear african-american turn out is stagnant if not down a little bit. that's why you see such a concerted effort now. that's why the trump folks feel they look at the racial makeup of florida and north carolina. it gives them optimism. the hispanic turn out appears it is in better shape than african-american turn out in the democratic coalition. you see it in nevada.
you see it in arizona. that may be a firewall now. the hispanic vote. you're seeing it in florida. that's why nevada and ralston believes it looks out of reach for trump just because the trump effect on the latino vote appears to be as advertised. >> i have to tell you, we spent more time covering hillary clinton in florida. she'll be there again tonight and tomorrow and north carolina. the president was there two days ago. we were there last night. north carolina, such a key. early voting ends there tomorrow. we know there is a big issue of alleged voter suppression on the minority vote side. these states could not be more important to blocking donald trump, think think from a path to victory. >> if florida goes it is hard to figure out his path if she wins florida. you take away florida he has to
find -- florida, north carolina, ohio isn't enough anyway if she's holding the big blue wall, pennsylvania, michigan and wisconsin plus colorado and virginia. you get rid of florida he has to find not only those 29 electoral votes that make up for that but also still missing another 20 somewhere. he's down 49. where does he find it? that's a pennsylvania plus a colorado plus virginia. the point is florida is a check mate state. pure and simple. clinton carries florida, check mate. >> chuck todd, thanks so much. we'll be talking to you all weekend. tune in at 5:00 eastern today for chuck and mtp daily and sunday for "meet the press." our big election coverage monday, tuesday, tuesday night and wednesday. we had bad news from jordan

>> translator: i think that the power of latino voting in this country will make a historical difference in this presidential election. every vote counts. every vote counts. >> tim kaine in arizona yesterday delivering the first speech entirely in spanish by a nominee for vice president. as the clinton campaign tries to galvanize latino voters. mariana interviewed tim kaine last night in spanish and english. >> reporter: tim kaine has given over 50 interviews in spanish
since accepting the nomination. that resonates in a state like arizona where i am now. according to the latest nbc news "wall street journal" marist poll latinos make up 21% of likely voters here in arizona. they favor secretary clinton by 66%. compared to donald trump's 26%. so even though the numbers look good for the clinton campaign i did ask senator tim kaine in our interview about a lower turn out by black voters elsewhere. this is what he had to say. early voting numbers show your ticket has gotten increased support from latino voters. >> mm-hmm. >> but support is soft from african-american voters compared to 2012. >> yeah. >> why do you think that is? >> it certainly started slow. a lot of states have done things since 2012 to make it harder to vote. some of the things they have done we have been able to challenge in court.
certainly we are worried about that. while the participation in some areas started slow it's really picking up. there is momentum to it. >> as you reported, black turnout remains a concern from the clinton campaign. especially in states like north carolina. definitely here in arizona the big story is the fact that secretary clinton only gone blue once and that was with bill clinton in 1996. >> how is tim kaine's spanish? when he speaks spanish to a spanish audience, how does it go over? >> his spanish is actually
pretty good, andrea. just the fact that we could conduct the interview about tough issues in spanish says a lot. i think the latino vote and just the numbers that we are seeing in states like arizona which is getting record numbers of early voting by latinos. you are seeing an increase of 4% by latinos. as someone covering this community for years one of the big questions was whether or not this voting block, the so-called sleeping giant would wake up and whether it was because of donald trump's candidacy and what he said about latinos or the clinton campaign's push to galvanize that were demographic. this is something we are going to be talking about in several battleground states on november 8. >> congratulations on that interview.
