3:35 am
>> do you pay for federal income tax now? >> trump refusing to say yes or no then. not denying the content or conclusion of the new york times bomb shell now instead of tweeting, i know our complex tax laws better than anyone who's running for president and i am the only one that can fix them >> the reality is, he's a genius. there is no one who shows their ge around the test code. >> don't hate the player, hate the game. >> hillary clinton calling him out on the first debate. >> they showed he did not pay any federal income tax >> that makes me smart. >> now, daring him to release his returns to show how smart he really is. trump is making a street of gaming the system one year ago.
3:36 am
can i say that? i am not a politician. >> from hedge funders from other billionaires like himself like regular americans. americans are gearing up to decide if trump will fight as hard to lower their taxes as he may have done on his own. >> the trump campaign did not deny he paid no federal income tax instead of releasing a statement times." although the statement also says the fiduciary's responsibility to pay business no more than legally required. kate, these are his personal tax returns and not his business tax returns. >> katy tur for us tonight. thanks so much. as you imagine, hillary clinton's backers waited no time today jumping on that. clinton herself focused on other

3:39 am
type of thinking. the people that are already with him, that's among the reasons they are with him. this is a guy that they think has taken advantage of the system and therefore can blow the system up. we are thinking it hurts trump is that he still needs to add for his vote totals. he needs 46% or 47%. that last slight of voters, these are the people that are not with him yet, what is he these stories of not paying for federal income taxes based on business losses are not a way to add votes to his vote totals. in that respect, it again provides long-term damage just on that part of it. whether it dislodges voters from him, i don't think it will do that. >> chuck todd, thank you very much. now to the other major story, hurricane mathew, a powerful and deadly storm that demonstrated

3:45 am
unanswered questions of what caused thursday's crash that injured 100 people and killed one. the black box that was recovered, that was manufactured in 1995 and it was not operational. they're hope thag the black box which is in the front car will be newer and was working. they have not been able to recover that yet because that front car is covered with debris. they started removing that debris yesterday, they're going clock. but, as you can imagine, it is a tedious process. everything they bring out of there is a piece of evidence. now, at this point tonight, it is still unclear if the brakes were applied as that train is headed into the station or an automated breaking system called positive train control could have prevented this accident.
