>> donald trump is not saying i don't believe what they may be reporting because he doesn't believe -- >> he didn't say that before or after the briefing and i was with him both times. speaking of national security and foreign policy. we sat in a round table with generals and former congressmen and other congressmen and other national notable experts and tfs it was a very great conversation and i call it interactive. his questions were somebody who wants to be commr and by the american people and our allies abroad and i was happy to sit in that round table because i think it's very systemic of the type of events we don't see as voters. >> did that briefing change any of the candidate's views on any of the national security issues? >> i can't comment on that. i think what that briefing did and the round table that preceded it, margaret, was that it is allowing us to continue the conversation and equipping ourselves and being informed. it's incredibly important for
8:10 am
>> -- prior to that? >> of course, not. he and mrs. clinton remind informed. the world is in danger and even though she has been secretary of state the fact this changes every day and there are things that you and i will never know that now secretary clinton and mr. trump are learning and i think we should applaud that in a very nonpartisan way. >> you were formerly with the ted cruz campaign and super pact. he said what he had to say at the convention. what did you know about donald trump that ted cruz does >> that he is very gracious, that he promotes women. i'm told. i'm the first male republican campaign manager in presidential plig history and that tells you a lot about donald trump and it also tells you a great deal about him he never said that to me. hey, we would like a woman, are you available? i'm there based -- i think it's symptomatic of who donald trump has been in his own corporation and elevating and promoting women. the other thing about donald trump to learn he doesn't look at things through a political
