6:31 pm
with scott pelley. >> rose: good evening. scott is off tonight. i'm charlie rose. the trump-pence ticket split today over endorsing the highest ranking elected republican for another term. prominent members of the g.o.p. are abandoning donald trump for hillary clinton, and party elders are warning he is running out of time to get his campaign on track. but if trump is worried about any of that, he did not show it today. here's major >> the campaign is doing really well. it's never been so well united. >> reporter: despite that optimistic assessment, those close to donald trump believe his campaign is in chaos. a combination of self-inflicted wounds, conflicting messages, and internal disorganization. that's typified by the clash between trump and running mate mike pence over something as simple as g.o.p. endorsemented. trump has refused to endorse house speaker paul ryan,
6:32 pm
for perilous times but this morning pence, who served with ryan in the house, had a different message. yesterday, trump faulted arizona senator john mccain, a former p.o.w., for failing american veterans. >> i've, you know, never been a big fan of john mccain. >> reporter: pence met with mccain a short time later and again tried to rewrite trump's script. >> senator mccain has provided the kind of leadership throughout his careert up for a strong america. >> reporter: that's not all. trump's clash with the gold star khan family, his remarks seeming to downplay sexual harassment, and his suggestion the november election could be rigged have given even ardent supporters like newt gingrich cause for concern. the former speaker told us:
6:33 pm
us trump campaign manager paul manafort has given up trying to shape or discipline trump's rhetoric, confining himself to day-to-day campaign mechanics. >> first of all, the candidate is in control of his campaign. that's number one. and i'm in control of doing the things that he wants me to do in the campaign. >> reporter: as the campaign faulters and trump's remarks have drawn even more scrutiny, prominent republicans have begun turning to his democratic opponent. top g.o.p. donor and hewlett packard c.e.o. meg whitman said on facebook, she will raise mone trump a demagogue who has "undermind the fabric of our national character." gingrich also told us he's still 100% with trump and believes he can weather the current storm. charlie, gingrich also scoffed at talk of an intervention to get trump to change campaign tactics, arguing the idea of outside advisers prevailing on a 70-year-old billionaire supremely confident in himself was fairly ridiculous.
6:34 pm
made himself the center of attention and nancy cordes tells us that's just fine with hillary clinton. nancy. >> reporter: charlie, ordinarily this would have been a challenging week for the clinton campaign. you had several d.n.c. officials resign, more fallout from the hacking controversy, and clinton's honesty over her e-mails was called into question yet again after an interview she did with fox. but the sheer number of unorthodox comments made by trump just this week has really been a boon to the clinton overshadowing some of their bad news. clinton herself continues to go after trump's business record. she visited a tie factory in colorado today to make the case that trump doesn't have to make his ties and other articles of clothing overseas. what's most heartening to democrats i talk to, charlie, is the fact that trump isn't just starting damaging new fused, he is revisiting old ones. just today, for example, he brought up his issues with megyn
6:35 pm
advisers have urged him time and time again to let it lie. >> rose: thanks, nancy. john dickerson is here, our cbs news political director and moderator of "face the nation." john, tell me about these attacks and what the ramifications are. >> reporter: the trump campaign has always said the big question for him is if people think it's too risk tow elect donald trump as president. the ramifications here are if people have concerns about his temperament. and what's different here is the criticisms are coming not just from the usual suspects. it's not jus donald trump. it's not just reluctant supporters. but now people like newt gingrich, who is a supporter of donaltrump, is sending this war. mayor giuliani has said a similar thing, and governor chris christie. all of his supporters are waving the warning signs and telling him he needs to change course. >> rose: he's taking friendly fire. is there the possibility of going to the point of no return? >> reporter: the answer to that question if this discipline that people like can the new want to see from of from dump,
6:36 pm
overcome the questions he hases raised about his temperament, the second question is does he want to turn the ship around? does he have the inclination and does he have the steering wheel this his hand to actually turn it around? the question is not are we past the time but does he want to turn it around. >> rose: when you talk to people at the state level what, do they say? >> reporter: i dialed around today and first there was a lot of gallows humor. "cass of chaos "is a word that is used. lake of discipline in the candidate nape worry about the discipline to do the hard business and the hand-to-hand fighting needed to win in 15 battleground state. the clock is ticking. voting in ohio begins basically in two months. >> rose: thank you, john. while campaigning in florida today, trump attempted to capitalize on a report that the obama administration sent $400 million in cash to iran in january. the timing of that transaction
6:37 pm
>> reporter: donald trump joined republican leaders in accusing president obama of paying ransom money to iran. >> we paid $400 million for the hostages, right. such a bad precedent, such an unbelievably bad precedent by-- set by obama. >> reporter: the u.s. transferred $400 million to iran last january around the same time that iran freed four american prisoners, including according to the "wall street journal," a cargo plane landed in tehran loaded with stacks of cash, including uros and swiss francs. u.s. sanctions forbid using american dollars in any transactions with iran considered the world's largest state sponsor of terrorism. >> that's false. >> reporter: today the white house spokesman adamantly denied that the $400 million was ransom money. >> no, it was not. it is against the policy of the
6:38 pm
>> reporter: administration officials say they were simply returning money that had been tied up in a 35-year dispute which the president addressed earlier this year. >> iran will be returned its own funds, including appropriate interest, but much less than the amount iran sought. >> reporter: charlie, republican skeptics charge that despite all the diplomat breakthroughs, iran is still in the00-taking business and point out they are still holding four u.s. residents as prisoner. tonight, there is more troubling news about zika. 33 members of the u.s. military are believed to have contracted the virus overseas. one of them is pregnant. 15 people in south florida were infected, apparently through mosquito bites. david begnaud reports the state is now at war with mosquitos. >> reporter: before dawn this morning, the plane used for aerial mosquito spraying was grounded in miami due to weather, another attempt will be
6:39 pm
breeding grounds is key to reducing the mosquito population. today, workers in miami-dade county inspected 38 homes. five had larvae on the property. >> this is just the preventive measures. >> reporter: in the wynwood neighborhood of miami, police were handing out zika flyers. today, mime's mairk tomas regalado, walked the streets proclaiming it was safe, despite a c.d.c. travel advisory recommending pregnant women stay away from this area zika zone. you think it's safe for pregnant women to come here? >> i think it's safe now because i don't think there is mosquitos here. >> this is an urgent need. >> reporter: the mayor said he has spoken with florida's governor rick scott about the travel advisory. did the governor convey whether he wants the travel advisory for this area? >> he does not want the travel advisory. he thinks that that's unfair. >> reporter: based on what the mayor said, we called the governor's office, but they would not respond directly to the mayor's remarks.
6:40 pm
pregnant women can get a zika test for free. all they have to do is go to a county health department anywhere in state. >> rose: thanks, david. today, the obama administration sent an urgent letter to congress, warning that unless there is quick action, funding for the fight against zika will run out in a few weeks. the n.i.h. has just begun a new vaccine trial and dr. jon lapook is here with more about that. jon, tell us exactly what this trial will do. >> reporter: well, c this vaccine works it will be a very big deal. yesterday the first of 80 healthy volunteers got vaccinated. now they're between the ages of 18 and 35, men and women, not pregnant but they're at an age where they can be thinking about it. and the main idea will be to test the vaccine for safety and see if it can prime the poddy to fight zika virus. >> rose: when will it be ready. >> reporter: dr. tony fauci
6:41 pm
unless there is new funding from congress, which hasn't happened so far, the vaccine trial will run out of money and they will not be able to proceed to the next phase. >> rose: if the vaccine is successful, it will end zika? >> reporter: well, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. imagine what it would mean for all the women around the world in area where's there is active zika and think about what an effective and safe vaccine will mean in terms of stopping the spread of zika but also peace of mind. >> rose: thank you, jon. zika on our web site. go to terrorism is not suspected, but we don't know yet what caused a crash landing today in dubai. an emraits airline jet burst into flames. but everyone got out alive. elizabeth palmer is following this. >> reporter: skidding down the runwayots belly, the first video of emraits 521 shows it
