tv CNN Newsroom With Poppy Harlow CNN August 6, 2016 12:00pm-1:01pm PDT
try to stop distracted driving. for more information on our series and this critical issue, please go to cnn.com sla/distra driving. i'm kelly wallace. top of the hour, 3:00 p.m. eastern, i'm poppy harlow. we begin with politics. after a week long standoff, the on again off again relationship appears to be on again for the time being. the latest truce forged last night in paul ryan's home state of wisconsin, where trump offered a belated and perhaps less than full throated endorsement of the house speaker, ending speculation whether it would happen. >> in our shared mission to make america great again, i support and endorse our speaker of the
house, paul ryan. >> moments later, reading off of the same notes that he just made that endorsement from, trump also backed republican senators john mccain and kelly ayotte, both in tough fights to hang on that their seats. both have found themselves at odds with their presidential candidate. the question now, will this temporary unity, if you will, last. the first test comes tonight. in a few hours, donald trump is supposed to be holding a rally in new hampshire. it ends a tumultuous week, who is behind clinton in that state by 15 points. the latest nationwide polling shows also a 15 point decline or trailing of clinton for trump. let's talk about what this all means as we edge closer and closer to november, less than 100 days to go. with me now, two beautiful and brilliant women, thank you for
being with me, ladies. scottie nell hughes, and hilary rosen. who is a democratic supporter. where do we begin on the week that was, scottie? i bet you're glad the week is over. so when you talk about donald trump, look, he came out last night, did the endorsement of all three of the republicans. is he doing enough to really turn the tide here? not to mention, he tweeted that he was wrong about the iran money payments video. so i mean, he is changing his tune. is it enough? >> well, once again, it was another roller coaster week on the trump campaign. high ups and definitely some low/lows. the reuters national poll has him up three points or just down by three points to hillary clinton, which is phenomenal. a lot of that has to do with ms. clinton's comments of short circuit and adding it to a long list of terms 2016 to brought to our attention.
but i think it is the very good beginning. he have a great fundraising, $83 million, which was not just for him, but candidates like kelly ayotte and paul ryan and john mccain. it will be a good way to speak in nume ew hampshire and maybe looking for reaction from them. i'm waiting for senator john mccain and house speaker paul ryan to say thanks forei endorsg me. >> he did hold back and say i'm not there yet a few days ago in the critical days leading to their respective elections. we'll watch and see if that happens. hilary, to you, you're happy about the poll numbers, but you say don't get comfortable. >> first of all, let's talk about the endorsements for one more minute. if i were kelly ayotte's campaign manager, i would tell her to say that she didn't want
donald trump's endorsement, you know. it comes too late. it doesn't help her na new hampshire. the significant portion of new hampshire, particularly women voters that make up a majority do not like donald trump. you know, and the paul ryan didn't need his endorsement to win. what the thing that was interesting is that everybody noticed that donald trump is just a fair weathered friend who can't be depended on. he is not really helping any other republicans, and so i actually think that the first one of the senate candidates that actually rejects trump's endorsement may have a better shot at winning. >> let's talk about another endorsement, flip the tables and talk about an endorsement, a number of republicans point to trump needing the endorsement of governor john kasich of ohio. he spoke exclusively with jake tapper yesterday. jake asked him, look, are you going to get behind your party's
candidate. let's listen. >> there was a speech i made called two paths. you can either operate on the dark side of the street or you can operate in the light. i believe that america needs people to operate in the light. plain and simple. >> all right, he also said in that interview that really stood out to me, scottie, my actions speak louder than my words. i did not go to the convention in my home state and i have not endorsed him. your fellow trump supporter, kayleigh, said yes th this is a endorsement that trump really needs. >> it would be nice in ohio, a battleground states. there are other states we can win. hilary brought up new hampshire, mr. trump, that was one of his first major victories that no one expected him to have. if you have someone from the opposition, encouraging governor kasich to reject endorsement,
that's what the opposition wants. so it works for -- >> can you still win? >> scottie -- >> you said scottie, it would be nice, but isn't it necessary endorsement, because no republican has ever taken the white house without taking ohio? >> well, it would -- but remember, there is a lot of republicans that attended that convention in cleveland that were very upset at not being welcomed by the governor himself. whether he wants to support mr. trump or not. >> in his home state. that was the only state he won. >> ohio voters. >> mr. trump can still see the path to victory without ohio. like i said, ohio voters are important and would be nice. but the question i thought was interesting out of jake's interview yesterday, what would it take for you to endorse mr. trump, and he really did not give an answer. so if you're going sit there and continuously as a republican offer problems without solutions, and that just tells me you're wanting to help the other side and putting your own ego above what's best for our
country. >> people will see that interview on "state of the union" tomorrow with jake tapper. if he doesn't win, he has to get pennsylvania and he is down double digits. hilary to you. >> there are so many of these states that can reject him and have him be elected. there is literally no path to victory unless he wins either ohio or pennsylvania or michigan. i mean, he has to win one of those big states. those voters are actually now coming to hillary clinton, as we saw interestingly in the polls this week, her biggest gains have been among white men, who really like john kasich are rejecking donald trump's politics. the interesting thing about these voters is they may be interested in donald trump's business background for whatever reason, i couldn't explain that. but what they are finding is that this election is turning on the values they're going to
spread to their children, their families, their whieives and girlfriend, that they're not able to look people in the eye. that's your seeing so many republicans to support hillary this week, while donald trump is flailing about. >> what we do know is that issue unnumb unnumber one in th unnumb unnumber -- number one in this election is economy. why hasn't donald trump spent the last week focusing on the gdp numbers. but i digress, and i have to ask you hilary, about the other hillary's e-mails. she comes out in the latest interview and says i quote-unquote short circuited my answer. when the "washington post" gave it four pinocchios and saying what she said is not true. the fbi director said back on july 7th that her answers to the american people were not fully truthful. what is she going to do on this front, because it keeps weighing
on her campaign? >> yeah, the biggest problem is, you know, the lawyer in her keeps want to re-litigate the specifics. the truth is that comey said in his testimony before congress that the three classified e-mails were not properly marked, and somebody could legitimately not have known that they were classified. that's why hillary clinton has consistently said i did not knowingly send these classified e-mails. the problem is, she just -- people need to stop asking her, but she mostly needs to stop talking about it. the important thing that comey did say that she did repeat was that she was truthful in -- and transparent with the investigation. so that shows motive here that there was no motive at any time during the entire process to pull the wool over the eyes of the american people. she did something that donald trump has never done. she apologized right away. said she was sorry. she is owned this mistake for months and months and months,
and you know, people can move on or not. we're going to compare that to the -- >> i'm running out of time, but the fbi director called her extremely careless in the handling of the e-mails and the american people have shown they lack trust in her. i don't think anybody needs to stop asking her questions, but we can debate that at another time. >> it is the same question. one thing is important. she did -- >> because she is not answering the question, hilary. if she would answer the question correctly, we would let it go. this continues on. >> i've got to jump in. scottie nell hughes, hilary rosen, we'll have you both back. thank you so much. as i said, tomorrow morning, you're not going to want to miss this interview. see the entire thing with jake tapper and john kasich, 9:00 a.m. eastern tomorrow morning in his home state of ohio. will he change his tune. will he get behind his party's candidate. he says actions speak the loudest. watch "state of the union"
9:00 a.m. eastern, right here on cnn. a lot going on in the cnn newsroom. hillary clinton says donald trump can't be trusted with the nuclear codes. ahead, a look at the president's nuclear suitcase works. also, playing spoiler. a look at the impact that third party candidates have on elections. ralph nader is our exclusive guest. and red plus blue makes purple. a look at why north carolina could swing either way this time around. stay with us. with my moderate to severe crohn's disease,... ...i was always searching for ways to manage my symptoms. i thought i had it covered. then i realized managing was all i was doing. when i finally told my doctor, he said humira was for people like me
who have tried other medications,... but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief... ...and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections... ...including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers,... including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions,... ...and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb,... ...hepatitis b, are prone to infections, ...or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. if you're still just managing your symptoms, ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible. so guys with ed can... take viagra when they need it. ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for sex. do not take viagra if you take nitrates for chest pain or adempas® for pulmonary hypertension. your blood pressure could drop to an unsafe level.
to avoid long-term injury, seek immediate medical help for an erection lasting more than four hours. stop taking viagra and call your doctor right away if you experience a sudden decrease or loss in vision or hearing. ask your doctor about viagra single packs. more than an apparel company. we've always been an innovation company. using technology is a critical differentiator. changing the expectation that the consumer will have for what a sports brand should be for them. this is where we're going to need a big, bad, technology partner. bring in. cue the bell. sap. under armour is a live business. we can anticipate the issues and needs that you're going to have using live data, to really understand the needs of the athlete. to make better decisions that meet our consumer where they are. the right place with the right product at the right time. the days of the eighteen month supply chain are something that we are quickly putting in our rearview mirror.
with plans in place right now to cut that by as much as twenty, to thirty, to forty percent. so what sap really does for the under armour brand, it truly allows me to run our business end-to-end. it is an ordinary looking briefcase with the power to launch nuclear war. hillary clinton and donald trump each questioning whether the
other should have access to the so-called nuclear football, if you will. our brian todd looks at what is inside the briefcase and the sobering task of carrying the football. >> just a few feet from the president, no matter where the commander in chief happens to be, a military aide carries a briefcase. it is nicknamed the football. the power it can unleash is legendary. >> immense unprecedented power. the united states currently right now deploys 900 nuclear warheads that are on the order of 10 to 20 times more powerful than the weapons that destroyed hiroshima and nagasaki. >> for three years, as a young marine, he carried it for three years for president ronald reagan. >> i wouldn't say i was on edge, but i was very focused on what i was going to do. the time is so short between alert and execution, you have to
be ready any time for any moment. that's why one of us was always in very close proximity to the president. >> metzger says there is a football for the vice-president if the president becomes incapacitated. >> it is somewhat longer, wider and heavier. >> inside the case, he says, there is communication equipment. metzger won't discuss the other conten contents, but bill gully, from the white house, described in his book, four crucial components inside. a so-called black book, if the u.s. is tackattacked with nucle weapons. bunk locations where the president can be taken in an emergency. manila folder, a small card with authentication codes to verify it is the president ordering a nuclear launch. >> that's known as the biscuit, interesting name. >> hillary clinton says donald trump doesn't have the right temperament to be trusted with
the nuclear code. >> to carry the football, he had to have rigorous background checks. it included extensive psychiatric screening. >> the result of the decision the president would make is so grotesquely horrible, it would change the face of the earth. it would change humanity. it would change mankind. he guess when you're on duty, you try not to think of the import of that, but you're fully prepared to do so if you have to. >> if the president decides to use the football and launch a strike, is there anyone in the chain of command that can stop that order. the white house won't comment on that. but pete metzger and others tell us unless there is i full-on
mutety n mutiny, no one can stop. >> barbara starr this week at the press conference asked the president how he feels about donald trump potentially being in charge of it. >> what is your assessment today as you stand here about whether donald trump can be trusted with america's nuclear weapons. >> just listen to what mr. trump has to say and make your own judgment with respect to how confident you feel about his ability to manage things like our nuclear triad. >> all right, ron brownstein is with me, cnn political analyst, and also senior editor at the "atlantic" a fascinating article this week. let's just put this in context for people. when have we ever seen a sitting u.s. president so openly oppose a candidate in that way? >> i don't think we have. i mean, i think this is a extension of kind of the ways in
which this is a unique election. the closest thing i can remember is in 1988, ronald reagan at one point made a seeming joke that was a reference to the rumor that michael dukakis was under going treatment for depression. he said i won't pick on an invalid. by the end of the day, reagan apologized because it was just such an uproar. this directly on the battle field, it is true, whether he engages or not, his approving rating, over 80% of the people approve for him will vote for hillary clinton. but directly kind of in the ring this way, this is pretty unusual. >> he has got 54% right now, the highest of his second term. let me ask you this. if you look at the past few weeks, three of the past four cia directors have blasted donald trump. most recently, former director mike muir rrrell.
he said in the past i've been silent about my preferences for president, but he felt so compelled to speak out now, following the other two former directors. the significance of that in your mind? >> it is very significant. michael heyden is featured in a knew pro clinton priorities usa ad, basically raising similar concerns. look, donald trump, the biggest single problem donald trump faces is that consistently, somewhere around 60% of the public have said he is not qualified to be president. that number has not budged, for example in abc post polling. who is better, who has the right temperament, that's where clinton leads the most. trump's add advantage is on change. in terms of preparation for the job, she has a big lead. these voices from republican leaning sources, an important source of reaffirmation, center right, who might vote republican, republican economics, to say this is a time
when you don't have to follow the usual partisan. >> ahead next hour, we're going to talk about what you're working on now and that's looking at history, '64, '72, goldwater and mcgovern and how much of the defection hurt them and what it means this time around. stay with us for that. ron, thank you so much. coming up, we're going to take you to chicago. chicago police are promising a full investigation today, after this. that shoots in broad daylight, it is an unarmed teenager. also, the big question right now, is why is the key piece of video in this shooting missing. next.
welcome back, shocking and disturbing. that's how the head of chicago's police oversight board describes video of this deadly officer involved shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old. it happened a week ago when officers opened fire after a high speed chase. there is one key piece of video, though, that is missing. the body cam video from the officer who fired the fatal shot here is rosa flores. >> reporter: newly released dash
and body camera video show the dramatic moments leading to a deadly police shooting in chicago. the suspect, 18-year-old paul o'neal was fleeing from police in a black jaguar reported stolen. as he drives toward a police car, two officers jump out. firing at the jaguar, as it speeds by. one officer even pointing his gun in the direction of his partner, as he turns around. seconds later, o'neal slams head on into a police suv. the violent collision, covering the suv's dashcam with smoke, as he takes off roading. body cams show officers chasing him. moments later, the sound of gunfire. o'neal was shot in the backyard of a home. the county medical examiner says o'neal, who was unarmed, died of a gunshot wound to the back. the officer who fired the fatal shot was wearing a body camera,
but not recording. investigators are trying to figure out why. o'neal's family watched the video before they were released to the public. >> i'm very hurt. words can't describe how i feel at this moment. how i felt when it happened. but i really want everybody to know that paul was loved by my mother, his family, me. >> the family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the department, and the officers involved. family members say some of the most disturbing moments are what the officers say after the shooting, while o'neal is still bleeding and handcuffed on the ground. he shot back, right? >> reporter: this shooting, happening in what has been deemed a new era of trans parn
r -- transparency. >> it appears it was violated. >> they took swift action, taking the police power away from the three officer whose fired their weapons. it only take eight days for officials to release the video, a move that at times has taken more than a year. rosa flores, cnn, chicago. >> rosa, thank you so much. coming up, live in the cnn newsroom, when three is a crowd. >> i do think that al gore cost me the election, especially in florida. >> from ralph nader to ross perot. ralph nader joins us live, next.

welcome back for both democrats and republicans, the rising popularity of the third party this year, likely brings back memories of ralph nader's presidential run in 2000. he racked up nearly 100,000 votes in florida. republican george bush won by 537 votes. just 537. an out come that decided the election. ralph nader joins me live in a few moments. if you think so-called fringe candidates don't make a difference, think again. randi kaye reports. no third party candidate has ever reached the oval office,
but that doesn't mean they didn't have a hand in who did. teddy roosevelt left the republican party, and ran on the progressive party or bull moose ticket. roosevelt split the republican vote with william howard taft. it likely cost taft the presidency, handing the oval office to democrat woodrow wilson, instead. fast forward to 1968, another third party candidate shook things up. this time, george wallace. >> wallace has the courage to stand up for america, give him your support. >> the former governor of alabama was considered a segregationist democratic, opposing civil rights and fueling fear in america. >> a sad day in our country that you can't walk in your neighborhoods at night or even in the daytime. >> wallace ran on the ticket for the american independent party. by pulling conservative democrat votes, he cost democrat hubert humphrey the election. richard nixon walked away with
the win. in 1992, it was ross perot's turn to shake up the race. >> good afternoon. the volunteers in all 50 states have asked me to run as a candidate for president of the united states. >> the texas billionaire ran as an independent. focused his presidential campaign on the national debt. >> decide who you think will do the job. pick that person in november. because believe me, as i've said before, the party is over. it is time for the cleanup crew. >> on election day, he snagged 19% of the popular vote. likely costing republican george hw. bush a second term. then bill clinton got the win. bush refused to discuss perot years later, in the hbo documentary, "41." >> what about ross perot? >> no, can't talk about it. i he cost me the election and i don't like him. >> he won 2.7% of the vote, but
pulled in 97,000 votes in florida. republican george w. bush beat al gore in florida by just 537 votes. if most of nader supporters voted for gore instead, gore would have won florida. and been elected president. >> just moments ago, i spoke with george w. bush and congratulated him on becoming the 43rd president of the united states. >> when nader was questioned about his campaign's role in gore's loss, he brushed it off. >> by the way, i do think that al gore cost me the election, especially in florida. and that's far greater concern than whether i was supposed to help elect al gore. >> in 2016, an election year where both major party candidates a likability problem, third party candidates see an opening once again. randi kaye, new york. >> randy, thank you. do not expect to see a third
party candidate on stage during this year's presidential debates, unless the polling changes significantly. a federal judge yesterday dismissing a lawsuit claiming that the presidential debate commission had violated antitrust laws and the first amendment by excluding the thard party candidates from this year's debate. they have to hit 15% to be involved in the debates. let's talk to a man with plenty of experience in third party politics. ralph nader. he joins me now on the phone. thank you for being with me. i appreciate. >> you're welcome, poppy. >> gary johnson was in a fascinating town hall this week with anderson cooper. jill stein will be in one shortly. they're still far behind clinton and trump in the polls. is victory for them unrealistic? >> well, it is in the two party rigged system, which has a private corporation deciding who gets on the presidential debates or who doesn't. i mean, that's pretty clear. the only way a third party
candidate can reach tens of millions of voters, no matter how widespread their campaign is in 50 states is to get on the presidential debate. and they're excluded because it is a private corporation, founded by the two -- the republican and democratic parties and funded by corporations, and they decide what kind of candidates are visible to the voters of america. that's why people often say it is a rigged system. >> so let's talk about the word rigged. this is everyone's favorite word this week, i'm tell you. donald trump came out and said look, the election system is rigged. president obama in his press conference brushed it off. and sort of said how can you, you know, how can you say that is the case. you say the word rigged. what do you make of trump's, the way that trump said that the election system is rigged. is he right? >> well, i don't know what he means. maybe the vote count in close elections in ohio or florida can be -- >> well, many were also saying that he was believed that he was
pointing to some of those voter i.d. laws that were overturned in north carolina for example. >> yeah, well, whatever he says, the key here is if we don't have a competitive democracy, giving people more voices and choices, and that's why third and fourth party and independent candidates are important, we're not going to make much change in this country. the use of the word spoiler only applied to third party candidates is a bigoted word. if we all have an equal right to run for election in this country, we're all trying to get votes, either we're all spoilers or none of us are spoilers. third party candidates are not to be treated as second class citizens. historically, poppy, third party has never won a national election, led the way against slav slave slavery, the late 19th century and most of social safety, including social security, medicare and the 40 hour week. so we have to get over this
siphoning away, about gore costing me the election. a quarter of a million democrats voted for bush. a quarter of a million. buchanan ran in florida. i suppose he siphoned. we've got to get away from this and go for more choices, new agendas, new energy, for the american people to have a real choice. >> you sound like a candidate in this election, my friend. but really, honestly and seriously on that point, when you look at a third party and perhaps elections after this, what do you think makes for a sustainable third party? meaning does it take, you know, multiple third parties coalescing to one additional major party to make it work? >> well, first thing that makes it third party possible is the multi billionaire.
if former mayor blumberg ran, it would have been a three way race. you would have gotten media and he would have gotten polls. that's number one. the second way a third party can grow to some stature is to start very early and very broad base, like representing a light/right coalition. not just left or right. but saying look, we've got to change the tax system, we've got to get criminal justice reform. we've got to have a living wage. we should have universal health insurance. debloat the military budget. push for civil liberties, get rit of crony capitalism. 70% or more and nonstop political force. >> so ralph nader, i want to keep this conversation going, including talking about scathing opinion pieces you've written about both clinton and trump. and what that means for your vote come november. why don't you stay with me. we're going take a quick break. more with ralph nader, next.
we're back with former presidential candidate, ralph nader. thank you for being with me, sir. you wrote a recent op-ed. here is part of it. the best thing hillary clinton going for her is the self-destruction, unorganized fact and truth starved ego donald trump. given that, who are you casting your ballot for in november? >> i never divulge my vote, but
you can surmise i'm not going to vote for either clinton or trump. there are third party candidates available for people, who want to cast a vote of conscience or want to highlight the agenda of the third party. you can write in your vote. i home some day we'll have a binding of the above on all ballots to people can vote no to the candidates, a vote of no confidence that actually means something. if it gets more than any of the other candidates, it cancels that line on the ballot and orders newy electi elections. 90% of the people would favor that and it keeps people from staying home. >> one thing you said before the break was that for a third party to actually win the presidency, it sounded to me like you were saying they have to be a billionaire candidate. you mentioned former new york city mayor, miake bloomberg. >> the only practical one. the one consequence from trump
as candidacy will increase the likelihood of billionaires running for office, but also for governors and senators. mark cuban is making signs, the owner of the dallas mavericks. tom steyer and others. we'll see more of that in 2018 and 2020. but i hope to see a grassroots effort like bernie sanders mobilized. that came out of the blue. nobody predicted that one. nobody could predict he could raise that much contributions. so i don't think that is off the charts in the coming years. especially with the internet and the example that bernie sanders established. and i think now, he should lead a nonpartisan civic mobilization, with a huge rally on the mall in washington, right after labor day and take it around the country, pushing his agenda, not pushing any
candidate, and so what. he has a role, other than just going around the country being, you know, cliches about hillary clinton, saying she was unqualified to become president. >> i'm not sure you'll see that in september. he just had an op-ed today, vehemently getting behind clinton. who knows, perhaps after the election. i'm very interested in who you would have liked to see run for president this go around that did not get in the race. >> well, first of all there are a lot of good people nobody heard of. there are people, you know, in the labor community, people in universities who are accomplished people, but they're not celebrities. so i have to give you someone, you know, that you might know. i think senator sharrod brown,
elizabeth -- governors from time to time. jerry brown wanted to run, i think would he have had a good chance. because he is such a winner in california, and he knows how to -- he knows how to appeal to fiscal conservatives and social liberals. the point is, the political recruitment system, the two party tyranny is very bad. it pushing out good people from wanting to go into politics, which they see as a dirty word and a mess and they don't want any part of it. so when bad politicians drive out good politicians, the people are the losers. and if people always keep saying politics is dirty, if people make it into a dirty word, poppy, why should they be surprised when they get dirty politics. >> ralph nader, thank you so look out for his forthcoming
book prosecution breaking through power". coming up next, the fight against zika goes aerial. florida's new steps to contain the virus and the example this could set for other states going forward. americans are buying more and more of everything online. and so many businesses rely on the united states postal service to get it there. that's why we make more ecommerce deliveries to homes than anyone else in the country. the united states postal service. priority: you
