10:00 am
the president. >> and you were the i candy today. >> what can i say? >> have a fabulous weekend. you are back here at noon eastern. "happening now" starts now. >> donald trump saw the disaster that claimed 13 lives and displaced thousands of people. we are covering all of the news happening now. >> there is no epidemic. >> zika fears on the rise in miami. >> two more confirmed cases, making three dozen in one of the crowded urban areas. can officials get this under control? plus, it could have been gone in an instant.
10:01 am
>> devastating wildfires forcing people from their homes. >> some still refused to evacuate as firefighters make progress but not enough. >> 3, 2, 1. >> a successful launch of the delta rocket. you how this will strengthen our national security. it is all "happening now". but we begin on this friday with a major shake-up in donald trump's campaign. paul manafort handed in his resignation just this morning and welcome to the second hour of "happening now". i am jon scott. >> manafort stepping days after team trump hired a new team manager and ceo. it comes with the new scrutiny of manafort's work with the
10:02 am
ukraine. >> and first time, the gop regrets sometimes saying the wrong thing. today trump and mike pence are touring flood ravaged louisiana to get a look at the devastation. john has more in new york city. >> reporter: sources close to paul manafort said it was manafort's idea. he knew he would need help in turning donald trump in the direction from a dark period following the two conventions and so is manafort suggested kelly and the trump said steve bannon and that made his position redundant. and there is stories of what
10:03 am
manafort's relationship was with the ukrainian president. and ties to the russian g. manafort believed that was becoming a distraction that donald trump didn't need. both sides agreed this morning they didn't need the distraction. additional breaking news, rick gates who was manafort's deputy is moved from the trump campaign to the republican national committee to be the li ason. and donald trump is doing today in baton rouge touring the denim springs high school and seeing the devastation there. tremendous damage to the high school and the baptist church where franklin graham purse is staging relief ifrts and donald trump with a up close look at
10:04 am
baton rouge. he will go later today to michigan to give a speech and last night in charlotte, fighting islamic terrorism and pursuing law and order and helping to rebuild the inner cities and donald trump taking the extraordinary step of making an apology to people he might have wronged and harshly critical or insulted. listen to what he said last evening. >> sometimes in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don't choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. i have done that and i do regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. >> reporter: now lest you think he is going soft his campaign
10:05 am
released campaign ads in ohio, florida, north carolina and pennsylvania and hammering hillary clinton over the issue of immigration and contrasting her position on illegal imdpragz to donald trump's position. and he wants a now sense of safety to america which will create economic prosperity. there is a lot going on outside of trump tower even though he is out of state. >> it is not your typical quiet summer friday. a lot of news to get to. thank you very much. >> and that shift in tone coming on the heels of recent polling with trump losing ground on white voters. and we have the correspondent
10:06 am
for the daily beast and welcome to you. eli analook at the numbers in a recent numbers wall street poll, voters in colorado, hillary clinton is winning among win eight points, 42- 34. and in virginia it is closer. leading trump by one point. but how do you explain the losses in popularity that donald trump is experiencing with the white men or hillary clinton's gain? >> you know, these numbers would be be shocking except for they make a lot of sense given the previous numbers that trump isn't cementing the republican base. we saw mitt romney unify the republicans. 93 percent of the republicans voted for mitt romney and the
10:07 am
number of republicans voting for trump 70 and 80 percent. who is the base of the republican party? it is a lot of men. mostly men. and so, it makes perfect sense that he is lagging hillary clinton on those voters. i think it is noteworthy that mitt rom no won independent voters from the base to independents. he beat obama 50- 45. and trump is trailing hillary clinton on the independents and so when you put those two things together. it explains the numbers in virginia, colorado, pennsylvania and ohio, all of the crucial swings states to win to get to 270 electoral votes. >> the wall street journal call its a lesson in cold dangerous math. mitt romney won white men and donald trump is not doing as well, why? >> i think it is ironic that
10:08 am
donald trump is doing so porly with white men. the campaign is designed to offend every demographic except white men. hispanic and muslips and the list goes on. and so it is it ironic for donald trump even now among the one group that receptmentes he was trying to evoke in the campaign they are not cottoning on to it him. white male voters are looking at the campaign and seeing someone who is errat and i can doesn't have temperament to be president and following most other americans in making the decision of can't support him. >> there has to be more, eli ana. he enjoyed numbers especially with the white men earlier and
10:09 am
tailoring the a pole of his campaign to disaffected blue collar workers. >> the numberical answer blue collar white working class voters don't make up a huge number of men in the country and they are a declining share of the electorate at large. both the male electorate and the whole electorate. and so trump would have had to increase their turn out and participation in voting. he needs to expand his base and he's not doing either one of those thing. >> james what about the new toned down trump that we seem to hear in the speeches like the one in north carolina, where he
10:10 am
apologized for perhaps offending people in the past. will that boost his appeal? >> i would give it 12 hours and see if he can maintain it. we have seen so many people come out and say here's the new trump and he's going to act responsible and start acting rational like an adult. i don't see why there is an indication over the past year or more than a year that he is capable of doing that. i think the voters have a full impression of who donald trump is. and when you read the teleprompter it doesn't sound sincere. it is late for him to try to convince people he is a new man. 70 year olds don't change at that point in life had. >> we'll see, i am not there yet. but we'll see. james kirchick and eli ana.
10:11 am
thank you. >> 70-year-olds can change. i am sure they are watching and can change. we'll see what happens next. the white house facing new round of criticism after admitting the 400 million payment to iran was used in the leverage of release of four american prisoners. the president is on vacation. >> reporter: i want you to follow the time line. this is instructive for the viewers at home. back in january, irepublicanian five americans captive. and at that time the u.s. sent 400 million in cash. it is the timing of sending that money that is raising a lot of eyebrows. let's face it. it was a ransome critics say.
10:12 am
obama administration said it was not. and skeptics howled. and yesterday they admitted that the money was used as leverage to seal the deal. >> we took advantage and converge it all. i make no apologies for the fact that in the final hours, we used the leverage of having that money. >> it was a ransome and now know it was ransome and put more american lives at risk. > reporter: we have a statement from the speaker's office. the president was acknowledged paying ran dhtsome risks endangering more americans and funding the very terrorism that we are trying to stop. he owes the american people a full accounting of the
10:13 am
ransome. >> he insist it was leverage and not a ransom and the administration is sticking to. that leverage to some might be ransom in others. i don't think the stoir store will go away soon. >> more to work through. and more on that story with general jack keene. jon. >> in the meantime u.s. swimmer ryan lochte is apologyizesing for his behavior. the gold medallist sticking to one key aspect of his story. and we are following extreme weather stories today. devastating floods affecting thousands of people in louisiana and fire crews start to get the upper hand on a major wildfires in southern california. >> all of the people you care

10:26 am
of brazilians shouting liar, liar. the people feel that the city was stained with false charges. we could see disciplinary from the u.s. swim team in the near term. back to you. >> steve harington, more on that now. >> we'll bring us in a former agent. and current agent for 110 agents in his field. drew, what is your take on this? >> i think he helped himself a lot by releasing an apology. it was well written. i think he covered a lot of the key elements twould have been something that i recommended to one of my clients. when you make a mistake, the worst thing to do is cover it up by fabricated or lying about it.
10:27 am
at least he's came out now and really apologietic. and owning up to it and that's the first step. unfortunately, for ryan lochte, this is the time for him to capitalize on the success, on the noteritiy and all of the great things that happened for the u.s. swim team and he will not do that. >> and talk about this. there are other athletes who had challenges and you have been an agent 30 years now. what are the repercussions for ryan lochte. what are they? >> i think he was a markectetable be athlete. he has a flair and style that is different than other athletes or other olympians, that
10:28 am
unfortunately is not something we will see i believe on tv. i root for all athletes, and i don't want to be negative. i think unfortunately, a lot of endorsements and advertisementes will think twice because of all of the controversy. at the end of the day whether what he did was a big deal or not, it has been a huge story and not a good or positive story and has overhaddoed so much of the greatness of the olympics that are phenomenal for the u.s. and this is the biggest story. >> your thoughts on this. do you think the controversy is warranted? >> some say this is a big deal and deserves the time and others say this is getting too much air time. you think the controversy is really there? >> i really think it has gotten a lot of a time for exactly what
10:29 am
happens. and he is a huge star. and he has all of the elements to make it sensational. it is a shame for you. >> he seeing you on television. what advice would you give him? >> number one, let's hope he told the full story and we'll not get more releases and more news about what he may or may not have done. comclean and make sure everything's out there and stick with it. and at this point, you have to keep a low profile okay. and hope it dies down and people look at it and say we with can live with this and use this dpoi asap endorser. it will affect him in the short term but not the long-term. his most marketability is right now. phelps, his marketability will
10:30 am
be 25 years and beyond. lochte's marketability is within the next year in my estimation and this will impact. >> and that is too bad. as i was preparing for the segment. i checked out your social profile. and not only as an agent and dad. you mentioned an agent for 28 years and first year as agent and father of the baby be and do you have an representation agreement signed with her or is she holding out for better terms? >> i should. she said call my agent. i guess that would be dad. i aming so much fun with dell. it is awe fun job and incorporate here. my clients love her and the kids and wives and everybody involved. i am just excited. >> how could you not?
10:31 am

government contributions and corporate contributions. is that far enough. >> i think so. i think the clintons will do what is right to continue the good work and avoid conflicts of interest. >> evan do you trust that? >> no. what reason do we have to trust that in hillary clinton said this would be no pay to play while she was in the state department. we with are finding out tons of foreign donors and there is smoke and fire with the clintons, it is not good to have a presidential candidate saying one thing and doing the opposite. clinton, it is one set of rules for them and another for everyone else. >> james comey was asked if his agency was probing the clinton foundation and this is what he had to say.

10:41 am
anything we try to gauge from the comment he didn't comment. >> it is not where the money goes that is raising so many eyebrows and no one doubts that the clinton foundation does good work for literacy and aids but where are they getting the money from? and why those people and corporations are giving it? >> i want to come back to something sha karen said. oh, she's not commenting on an investigation. i spent years in the federal judiciary and seeing fbi investigation. when you hear them say they are not commenting on whether or not an investigation exists or not, that means one exists. three separate fbi officerses went to justice department and wanted to open up investigation on the clinton funds and they were blocked. was it a political block? we don't know. we need to know why hillary

clinton is taking money from saudi arabia and promoting women's rights. that is not promoting it what so ever. >> there were 26 million to the clinton foundation from 60 companies that lobbied the state department while she was secretary of state. the obama administration warned the foundation that it had to be hands off, karen. and it seems like they didn't necessarily get the message. >> i think what they are doing moving forward is the right thing. to make sure we stop perceived conflict of interest or actual conflict of interest before they happen. it is unprecedented territory and we need to move forward in the right way. that is the plan and what you are hearing from them today and they are trying to do the right thing and make sure we are forward.

>> the end garjs we used the leverage of having that money to make sure the iranians didn't rekneeing on the negotiations. it was the prudent thing to do.
10:47 am
all of these things came together and worked and converged and we took advantage of that convergence to get our people back out and then again, not let the money go until we knew the iranians would do the right thing. >> the white house admits there was a convergence with the hostages released and payments made to iran for a separate legal issue. we'll bring in general jack keene. so this is an admission there was a convergence of a few different story lines in what the administration was working for in iran. what do you make of it all? >> they received money for the exchange of the hostages. that is called ransom. the important fact that gets lost here, what is the impact on
10:48 am
iran's behavior. iran state department and print journalist reported that the united states paid 400 million for those hostages and the iranians have taken three hostages since they received that money. clearly they are incent vised that taking the hostages and getting something for it is a good deal. they have taken hostages 35 years. it goes back to the reagan administration where the administration came down over trading missiles for hostages. they believe they got money for it. that's what is horrible about this. >> be the other news of the week. iran is allowing russia to operate the air bases and bomb syria we have escalating conflict. this is the using cruise missiles to target inside

syria. they are going after al-qaeda linked fighters. they are on the side of president assad. and civilians are caught in the middle of this. and assad forces going after the kurds. so what is happening in syria as it seems that there is an escalating tension from all of the major players. >> when the russians got into this they propped up the regime and saved it. it was what happened to them, they have not taken back p the territory because of the opposition posed by the al-qaeda and moderates. this is it a tough struggle for the russians. they are getting push back at home particularly with the elections coming up. they are going all in with an
10:50 am
increased bombing campaign and using long range bombing with the ah sawed regime. this is not killing kurdish fighters. this is killing entire neighborhoods, entire towns, entire villages. this has been systematic genocide for five years now. the u.n. death toll they're reporting is 400,000 plus, 11 million people displaced out of a population of 22 million, with refugees migrating to europe. this is a staggering human catastrophe which is playing out before our eyes. >> what should be our roll here? we only have 20 seconds. >> our role is very clear. admiral occur by said earlier on television that there is no military solution. who wants a military solution? what we should have been taking is military action that was recommended by president obama's own national security team first to assist the syrian moderates,
10:51 am
he said no, with arms and training. second, to take down portions of assad's military as a result of crossing the chemical red line. his entire national security team recommended that. he said no. >> i apologize for having to cut you off. we'll be right back. from point a to b, and back again. there's a difference between being alive and living. for those who can't imagine life without two wheels, allstate offers a genuine parts guarantee, that promises to fix your bike with original parts. talk to an allstate agent about all the things they do to keep riders riding.
