2:00 am
donald trump trailing hillary clinton in the polls and striking back on the trail, but can he regain momentum. team usa breaking records in rio. the olympics in full swing. who won gold and who crashed? storms across the world. dozens dead in macedonia. welcome to "early start." i'm alison kosik. >> i'm ryan nobles. happening today, donald trump set to unveil his plan to boost the u.s. economy. he is expected to add details to his proposal for tax cuts and reducing the federal debt. hillary clinton laid low every the weekend enjoying a bump in the polls following the democratic national convention and critical week for trump. trump was in full attack mode. leading republicans are not sure
2:01 am
trump can win in swing states. >> he will win parts of ohio where people are really hurting. there will be sections he will win because people are angry and frustrated and haven't heard answers. i still think it is difficult if you are dividing to win in ohio. i think it is really, really difficult. >> particularly here in arizona. the statements he made out of the gate when he got into the campaign about those crossing the border being rapists and whatnot. that doesn't sit well. then to refer to a judge born in indiana as a mexican. in a pre-ortive way. you cannot expect to win arizona when you make statements like that. >> is there any chance that hillary clinton could win in arizona? >> in 1996, bill clinton won arizona. yes, it is possible. >> for more now, let's turn to scott mclean in washington. >> reporter: ryan, donald trump has a lot of work to do to watch
2:02 am
up to hillary clinton. a washington post poll shows clinton with an 8-point lead over trump. clinton benefitted from the bump after the democratic national convention and trump is coming off a week filled with one controversy after another. republicans have been pushing trump to focus energy on hillary clinton. this weekend, he seemed to get the message. >> she's a liar. she is a horrible, horrible human being. she's incompetent. she's incompetent. i don't think that you can even think of allowing this woman to become the president of the united states. >> reporter: trump is going after hillary clinton's attempt to clarify an answer he given about her private e-mail server. clinton said that director james
2:03 am
comey found her public statements about the server were truthful. that has been debunked because comey never passed judgment on that specific point. clinton has tried to defend herself by saying she short circuited on that initial answer. >> unstable hillary clinton. and you saw that. you saw that where they basically short circuited. >> reporter: clinton was out of the public eye this weekend, but on sunday, her running mate tim kaine defended her on the e-mail issue. said a clinton/kaine administration would be open. >> she said it was a mistake. i'm not presumptuous enough to start thinking how i will do things after november. i know this is something that she's learned from and we're going to be transparent. >> reporter: today, trump will be in detroit to tout his economic plan. hillary clinton will start a two-day trip to the key battle
2:04 am
ground state of florida where last week a poll showed her with a lead. >> thank you, scott. time for an early start on your money. as we mentioned trump is expected to unveil his economic agenda today. what do we know? on trade, he wants to renegotiate nafta and slap hefty tariffs on china and other countries. and he put out a four-page plan saying he would cut the income tax rates to four and increase the standard deduction and repeal the estate tax and amt. analysts say that could add almost $10 trillion to the deficit over ten years. we will watch closely to see if trump winds up dialing back the cuts. finally on the minimum wage, trump changed position a few times. last month, he would be open to raising it to $10 an hour after saying wages were too high.
2:05 am
time to break this all down and for that and the latest political combat, we have eugene scott. obviously this is a rough couple weeks for trump. he feels like the economy is one area where he has a bit of an edge on hillary clinton. there are some polls that do indicate that some americans do believe that donald trump is a little bit stronger with economic issues. he will talk about the economy today in a speech in detroit. a poll shows he has a five-point edge in that department. we have seen a lot of polls with trump with no edge in any department. is this where he can change the conversation that the campaign has dealt with and get back on the issues? >> he certainly is hoping so. that is the area that he has an
2:06 am
advantage over hillary clinton and expertise. we have seen some people in the economic sector say that actually hillary clinton would be better for the economy than donald trump. i think he will spend a lot of time in detroit making a case for why voters believe what they actually believe. you talked earlier about the trade deals. critics said they are not sure if he can bring back as many jobs as he hopes. >> donald trump isolated himself in the republican party, from the republican party. not getting much support outside or inside the party at this point. then we hear over the weekend a bush coming out to support him. everyone said what? let's go to what he said. george p. bush. listen. >> you know for team bush, it is a bitter pill to swallow. you get back up and you help a man win and make sure you stop
2:07 am
hillary clinton. >> that is jeb bush's son. jeb bush, who trump spent an inordinate amount of time insulting throughout the campaign. calling him low energy and on and on and on. here comes jeb bush's son saying you know what? i'll put my support behind donald trump. if i could have been the fly in the room when his dad heard about this. >> what will be interesting is to see if george p. bush writes a column called why my dad should vote for donald trump. there has been discussion about the younger bush hitting the political scene for a while. i wonder if this is important. the younger bush is hispanic. this is a community that donald trump is having a difficult time winning support of. it will be interesting to see if
2:08 am
more hispanic republican leaders, establishment or not, get on the trump train via the bush car, i guess. >> sound bite we played was brief. i wonder, eugene, is this the difference with the jeb bush and george w. section of the family? their political careers are behind them. george p. has a bright future in front of him. is it about having the opportunity to run in the future and not wanting to take the risk that donald trump could win? >> i certainly think so. i think one mistake a lot of people make of political families is assuming everybody is on the same page all the time. the reality is we have not seen that. i think this is the latest example of that. i think he is hoping from this move, perhaps, people will be talking more about the bush family and perhaps him. >> eugene, thank you so much.

2:36 am
around what the fbi director said clearly. it was extremely careless. what she is aiming to do is prove she is more trust worthy than voters believe. she seems to not have a lot of success doing that. hopefully they can find some way. her supporters are hoping she can communicate that going forward. >> let's switch to trump. having a difficult time after the convention. even after the bump in the polls. we're continuing to see the republican party splintered as far as support. especially when we talk about the bushs. none of which showing up to the convention until this weekend we have a bush, at least throwing some support, behind trump. listen. >> you know team bush, it is a bitter pill to swallow. you get back up and you help the man win and you make sure we stop hillary clinton.

>> that is george p. bush. that is jeb bush's son. jeb bush, remember jeb. trump called low energy. ineffective and on and on and on. what is george p. bush thinking and what could jeb bush be thinking about what his son did? >> i think george p. bush could think about his future in the republican party. there has been talk for him continuing the legacy of the bush family. this is a good way for him to get before the cameras and make national news as he has. the bush family, we have not been speaking about for a while. this also could be an opportunity for the donald trump campaign to rally support and targeting behind hispanic voters. the younger bush is hispanic and perhaps can help hispanic voters rally behind trump. >> it is clear, eugene, we are seeing republicans looking toward the future taking two paths. those who get alongside donald trump.

2:39 am
said. he has yet to decide. he doesn't know what he will do. i think ted cruz made it clear as well. there is room and time, perhaps, for donald trump to do things that could win both of their votes. the likelihood of that happening i don't know. there is still time. maybe they will end up getting on the trump train. >> it seems close, but we have a bit of time. >> quite a bit. >> thank you, eugene. time for an early start on your money. dow futures higher following solid gains friday. after the strong u.s. jobs report. european stocks in the green as well. asian markets closed higher. on friday, the s&p and nasdaq closing at record highs things to the jobs report. u.s. economy created 255,000 jobs in july. unemployment rate holding at
