work travels so -- it's something that i do on a regular basis. >> reporter: the federal government trying to reassure americans that foreign airports with flights into the u.s. are inspected regularly. some of them have extra requirements based on what's happening there and the flight crews, the ground crews, the people who service those planes are checked against terror watch lists. ironically the state department had just put out a travel warning not to travel in turkey just one day before this happened. three crew members are still missing at this hour after two trains collided in texas tuesday morning. that blaze was so massive rescue crews had to battle it into the night in an effort to recover the missing. a fourth crew member who jumped from the train remains in the hospital. the toxic

fire. >> and while those comments raised eyebrows it's what he said about the transpacific partnership that raised heads. insisting the country was quote, being raped by tpp supporters. >> the transpacific partnership is another disaster done and pushed by special interests who want to rape our country just a continuing rape of our country. that's what it is too. it's a harsh word. it's a rape of our country. this is done by wealthy people that want to take advantage of us and that want to assign another partnership. >> now, hillary clinton issued this response to the terror strike in turkey saying this attack only strengthens our resolve to defeat terrorism around the world and we must deepen our cooperation with our allies and partners in the middle east and europe to take on this
recent rhetoric at a town hall last night. >> the whole slogan make america great again is code for go back to the time when a lot of people were not included, including women, including african americans and latinos and a lot of other people. i am not sympathetic to the home phobia, islam phobia and all of the other, you know, sort of dog whistles that trump uses. >> clinton is expected to remain out west today while trump holds a fund raiser in boston and a rally in maine. newly obtained surveillance video shows the dramatic moments when a man was shot on the white house grounds last month. the secret service says he was shot for the gun he was

he came to the white house to quote, shoot people. torrential rains pounded denver yesterday. it delayed the rockies game where ice pellets rained down on coor's field. cherry creek looked more like a raging river after the storm passed there. is there any relief in sight? >> not for that area. that general area, you had a lot of bad wind damage, about 180 reports. a lot of that was in areas of colorado and wyoming. there's still a few left here in maine. as we shift out to the area where we saw those pictures from, we saw a set of storms that may make it all the way to the panhandle of okay. and half
