7:04 am
trump has something the others don't. >> nobody knows the tax code better than i do. i'm lye like a student of the tax code. >> reporter: trump told "60 minutes" he built his tax plan around incentives he said will create jobs. >> i understand what to do with the tax bill to get people working again and they want to work. they really want to work. but we can't disincentivize people and what we have been doing. >> reporter: four income taxes plans. 0, 10% and 20% and 25% and low income workers would pay nothing. the current tax code has seven rates and the top rate nearly 4040%. something he says will encourage u.s. businesses to bring billions of dollars back from overseas. lastly trump would raise taxes essentially on wealthier taxpayers. trump practically beamed as he
7:05 am
>> i think you will be very "i am proud of you, donald." i hope. >> reporter: grover norqist a conservative group received details of trump's plan and came away impressed. >> if you have strong growth, then, without raising taxes, you can afford more things. this is a tax bill as reagan had cut taxes. if we had grown at the same rate that we did under reagan, it would be 12 million more americans at work. if there 12 million more americans at work paying taxes today you would have more money. >> reporter: almost every presidential candidate has taken that pledge not to raise taxes. trump has yet to sign on but nonetheless his plan speaks to norquist. >> it will affect the tax cut statistically scored and fits
7:06 am
comfortably within the parameters. >> reporter: democrats have rided this approach for decades saying it increases federal deficits and trump says he understands economics better than they do. whether or not that is true or not trump has learned how to fight republican orthodoyx. >> what is your plan for obamacare? obamacare is disaster. if you look what is going with premiums whether up 45%, 55%. >> reporter: how do you fix it? >> everybody has to be covered. this is an un-republican thing for me to say because they say, no, they can't afford private. >> reporter: universal health care. >> i am going take care of everybody. i don't care if it costs me votes or not. everybody will be taken care of much better than they are now. >> reporter: the uninsured person is going to be taken care of? >> yes. >> reporter: how?
7:07 am
existing hospitals to take care of them. >> reporter: who pays for it? >> the government is going to pay for it but we will save so much money on the other side. for the most part, it's going to be a private plan and people are going to be able to go out and negotiate great plans with lots of different competition, with lots of competitors, with great companies, and they can have their doctors, they can have their plans, they can have everything. >> trump said he will not back away from his immigration plan. he said he would round up and deport illegal immigrants in a humane way and those when did well in america would get a legally. left in congress. he sat down with john dickerson for his first one-on-one interview since introducing his resignation. he called some all prophets. >> the bible says beware of false prophets. there are people out there, you
7:08 am
know, spreading noise about how much can get done. i mean, this whole idea that we are going to shut down the government, to get rid of obamacare in 2013 this plan never had a chance. we have groups in town. members and house of the senate here in town who whip people into a frenzy saying they can accomplish things they know, they know are never going to happen. >> john dickerson is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> he has the gloves on wrp people in his party. >> rirmt makes youetirement makes you candid. what is interest when he said "they know," in other words, a total hoax these people fighting with him they can't get done what they can get done yut they still press. that is -- charge of incredible cynicism. >> he said he thought about this
7:09 am
decided to stay. what is the real reason of this timing now? >> well, the pope says i think -- he stayed after eric cantor lost. the greatest thing has happened in his tenure in the house. he said his prayers the next morning and said, let's just do this. >> i think what is the most interesting thing what this means for the future. because house majority leader mccarthy is likely to replace him and less close to the conservatives. it may embolden them. >> there are two camps. in the people i talked to after this. the one group that says conservatives now have a scalp in john boehner and they want to press and press and ask a lot of mccarthy. people think mccarthy is in line and he has a lot of votes but they are asking for commitments from him. another group says, no, the conservatives can't do this to
7:10 am
in other words, they can't press whoever the next speaker is and get him to lead and they lose all legitimacy. i'm not sure. >> who are these conservatives? >> well, is there a group of about 30 to 40 of them. they are called the hell no caucus by bainoehner and his folks and people they believe were sent to washington to do something and kick the can down the road. carly fiorina, a frightening incident on the campaign trail for her. she was on stage in san antonio, sunday, when the curtains behind her collapsed. her aided shielded her from the falling backdrop. no one was hurt and fiorina continued with her speech. this morning, president obama will address the united nations general assembly in new york city. it happens on the same day he is scheduled to talk with russian president vladimir putin. the meeting comes as russia
7:11 am
margaret brennan is live. >> reporter: president obama had hoped to use his trip to the u.n. as a sort of victory for the diplomatic breakthroughs with iran and cuba but instead it's overshadowed by the crisis in syria and forcing him to have a rather tense meeting today with russian president vladimir putin. >> reporter: for the first time in more than a year, president obama will meet with vladimir putin. the russian president's recent military buildup in western syria seen in these satellite images, blindsided u.s. officials who fear more bloodshed. the president's isolation after putin's in crimea failed to stop him and u.s. reluctant to act in syria putin stepped into the void and taking advantage of the chaos to step up his longtime ally bashar al assad.
7:12 am
fight isis. >> the risk of having russia in syria becomes not just a regional problem but a great power of complication. >> reporter: the white house was caught off-guard on sunday when the iraqi government announced it would share intelligence on the islamic state with the russians plus syria and iran. >> we have concerns about how we are going to go forward. >> reporter: in a meeting with his russian counterpart, secretary of state john kerry said the u.s. needs to know what putin is planning. french war planes carried out their first air strikes in syria on sunday. u.s. intelligence officials estimate that the number of foreign fighters joining isis in iraq and syria has doubled in the past 12 months to 28,000 volunteers from over a hundred countries. and 500 million dollar u.s. program to train and equip syrian has failed and some on the battlefield and recently gave their weapons in exchange
7:13 am
despite all of this chaos in syria, president obama has not yet changed the u.s. strategy to fight isis, while pushing assad to negotiate an exit from power. but, charlie, even that position has softened with the u.s. and its allies now saying that assad can stay in power for at least the short term. >> thanks, margaret. president putin will address the united nations general assembly today. the first time in more than a decade. we talked to putin for last night's "60 minutes" who gave us insights on his thoughts on the complicated situation in syria. are you prepared to put russian combat troops on the ground in syria if it's necessary to defeat isis? >> translator: russia will not participate in any troop operations in the territory of well, at least we don't plan on
7:14 am
it right now. but we are considering intensifying our work with both president assad and with our >> reporter: come back to the problem that many people look at and they believe that assad helps isis. that his reprehensible conduct against the syrian people using barrel bombs and worse is a recruiting tool for isis. and that he was removed, transitioned at some point. it would be better in the fight against isis al nutra and others. >> translator: speaking in a professional language of intelligence services, i can tell thaw this kind of assessment is an active measure by enemies of assad. it is antisyrian propaganda. >> reporter: much is being read
7:15 am
is a new effort for russia to take a leadership role in the middle east, and that it represents a new strategy by you. is it? >> translator: not really, no. more than 2,000 fighters from russia and ex-soviet republic are in the territory of syria. there is a threat of their return to us, so instead of waiting for their return, we are better off helping assad fight them on syrian territory. so this is the most important thing, which encourages us and pushes us to provide assistance to assad. and, in general, we want the situation in the region to stabilize. >> fascinating. >> it is fascinating. >> it gets more fascinating with his meeting with president obama today. the news on the front pages today is iran is coordinating with iraq and syria sharing intelligence on syria!
7:16 am
strategy by him to play a bigger role in the middle east, but he is scared to death of something happening in syria in which there will be no strong central government and isis will roll up to the mat. >> fascinating. more on that. pope francis is back at the vatican this morning after his nine-day visit to the united states and cuba. francis told reporters on his plane, he was impressed by american's warmth and society. the pope left after celebrating sunday mass in front of up to 1 million people in philadelphia. jericka duncan was among them and with us from philadelphia. good morning! >> reporter: good morning. the two-hour long mass took place on the stage which you can see right behind me in front of the philadelphia museum of art. but the pope's last day in the united states will likely be remembered for some of the comments he made concerning church sex abuse. pope francis left philadelphia after delivering one of the largest catholic masses in u.s.
7:17 am
>> i ask you pray for me. don't forget. >> reporter: but he began his sunday here at the st. charles seminary where he met privately with five people who were abused by clergy, telling them, quote, words cannot fully express my sorrow for the abuse you suffered. i am profoundly sorry that your innocence was violated by those who you trusted. >> translator: god weeps. >> reporter: he then addressed 300 bishops. >> translator: and i commit to a careful oversight to ensure that youth are protected. and that all responsible will be held accountable. >> reporter: while much of his trip was filled with the constant reaching out to the
