10:30 yesterday morning. we watched as it exploded to about 9,000 acres before sundown. the battle continued through the night, and it is far from over. huge flames lit the night sky, as the blue cut wildfire continued its relentless advance. it only took a matter of hours for the fire to explode to thousands of acres tuesday afternoon, burning entire neighborhoods to the ground, and destroying the inn, a local landmark since 1952. >> firefighters can't make their way here. the flames just too intense. >> reporter: thick smoke filled the skies above san bernardino county, the wildfire grew quickly by dry brush and 100 degrees temperatures. >> this is a huge, huge fire fight out here. >> reporter: this fire is so hot, i can feel the heat radiating behind me, but also moved extremely fast and spread
you can see this home is fully involved right now, and there is not a firefighter in sight. >> it spots ahead of itself, keeps moving, keeps leap frogging up. >> the motor home just blew up. the car just caught on fire. >> reporter: six firefighters were briefly trapped by the flames, two of them suffered minor injuries. >> just because of the wind direction, we were fully engulfed with smoke, visibility was extremely low. it was rea hand in front of your face. we hunkered down and waited until the fire blew over. >> reporter: we found these men working to protect their neighbors' homes. where are the firefighters? >> up there with the fire, i guess. >> reporter: what is it like fighting the fire. >> part of living here. >> reporter: what is it like as a firefighter as you see these people watching their homes burn and nothing you can do. >> tragic. something that firefighters hate to see. >> reporter: this is just one of
sacramento, that's about 35% contained. we've learned more about the man accused of setting that fire. he was trained as a inmate firefighter, while he was in prison. now he is scheduled to be arraigned today. >> carter, thank you. donald trump is overhauling his top political staff again. his campaign confirmed the changes overnight. promoting an advisor and hiring the executive chairman of a conservative website. steffen becomes the ceo, while kellyanne conway becomes campaign manager. paul manafort remains campaign ch chairman. major garrett covered last night's trump rally in west bend, wisconsin. he is with us this morning from milwaukee. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump is on his third campaign manager.
part of a scandal in ukraine and off the book payments to manafort. before that news broke, trump gave a speech here he hoped would appeal to african-american voters by accusing hillary clinton and the democratic party in general of being indifferent to inner city poverty. >> to every voter living in the inner city, or every forgotten stretch of our society, i'm running to offer you a much tt >> reporter: donald trump tried to diversify his political movement by condemning what he called decades of failed democratic urban rule. >> i'm asking for the vote of every african-american citizen struggling in our country today who want a different and much better future. >> reporter: the message was new, but the audience was typical. overwhelmingly white. a recent poll shows trump attracting just 2% of
less than half when mitt romney got exit polls from the 2012 election. >> we will reject bigotry, hatred and oppression in many of its ugly forms. >> reporter: from the far of the campaign, trump has drawn criticism for racism insensitivity. >> he is a mexican. >> look at my african-american over here. look at him. are you the greatest? >> reporter: this time, trump re-kindled policies are to blame. >> the african-american community has been taken for granted for decades by the democratic party, and look how they're doing. >> reporter: electing hillary clinton would further inflame racial tensions. >> we reject the bigotry of hillary clinton, which panders to and talks down to communities of color, and sees them only as votes, that's all they care about. >> reporter: trump has rejected
deliver a blemessage like this the naacp. trump will receive his first classified intelligence briefing as the republican party nominee. >> thanks, major. republican strategist and cbs contributor, frank luntz is with us. >> you don't do it. you have additions, that's traditional in politics, as you get closer to the election, you add mortal length. you don't have a shake-up, take the top person and push them aside as they did tol manafort. steve bannon in particular, he is one of the toughest, most aggressive, most negative operatives in america today. that signals to me that trump, rather than softening his approach, is going to double down of being the tough, in your face campaigner, and i don't think that's what donald trump needs. these are independent, undecided voter he is going after. they appreciate his message, but they question he himself. they don't like the persona, they don't like the anger, the
they want change in wall street. they think he can bring it, but don't like him as a person. >> what about kellyanne conway, she has worked with other political campaigns. >> i've known her for 30 years, this is someone who understands polling, focus group, messaging. the question is will donald trump listen to her. does donald trump listen to anyone. his message still resonates. his message is stronger than hillary clinton. his persona is so upsetting to so many people, that's what is holding him back. polling over the last two weeks, when donald trump finished his convention, he was up by two points. today, he is down by eight. it is all because of his persona, not his policies, and not the issues that he has talked about. >> does it deepen the divide within the republican p mend fences? >> it depends on what trump does and says. they want him to be prepared for the debate. they want him to take the campaign against hillary clinton. every time he is talking about
talking about second amendment and agitating people, every time it is about this conversation right now, donald trump is losing. >> roger ailes? >> i think it is significant. and roger is, to me, and i've known him since 1980, the best political operative. he knows how to win a debate. he knows how to win a presentation. he took george herbert walker bush, and i believe ailes, but somewhat it is like putting stallen. >> aren't they denying roger ailes being involved. what have you heard? >> stthey may not be a formal deal, but it doesn't mean they don't talk. >> congressional republicans and democrats are ready for another fight over hillary clinton's state department e-mails. congress received fbi notes and other documents from the investigation that led to no charges against clinton. the candidate is promoting its
claiming donald trump's economic plan would lower taxes and give tax breaks to the nancy cordes is in whashington where the fbi gave the documents to congress just yesterday. >> we've learned the fbi turned over quite a bit of material to congress, a highly unusual move, designed to convince republicans that the agency thoroughly investigated clinton's use of a private server, before recommending against prosecution. the fbi labeled the clinton material secret, being provided with the expectation it will not be disseminated or disclosed without fbi concurrence. the trove of documents include interview summaries that republicans will pour over, looking for discrepancies, between what clinton told fbi agents and what she told congress. >> nothing was marked classified at the time i sent or received it. >> republicans are trying to make the case that clinton should be prosecuted for perjury and false statements.
her private e-mail account as secretary of state. >> i have nothing to say. >> campaigning in philadelphia, clinton had no comment. but an aid says the perjury accusation wreaks of desperation on the part of republicans who continue to use taxpayer money to effect an election that isn't going their way. hoping change the subject, her campaign accused trump last night of pushing a deranged conspiracy about clinton's health. >> hillary clinton doesn't have believe me. >> the 70-year-old trump has made a series of unfounded statements about clinton's well-being. >> she has got -- she is low energy. she actually is low energy. >> clinton's aides have pointed out she has done hundreds of campaign events, and sailed through an 11 hour benghazi hearing. >> those are the facts, mr. chairman. >> but that hasn't stopped trump. >> she'll take a nap for four or five hours and come back. no naps for trump.
clean bill of health from her doctor last year, but that hasn't stopped some far right websites from spreading a fake letter from that doctor, claiming she has dementia, and is prone to blacking out. margaret. >> thank you, nancy. people in southern louisiana are beginning to salvage what they can, after that catastrophic blooding. it is coming into full view. the death toll has climbed to 11, at least 40,000 homes have been from the rising water has jumped to more than 30,000. flood warnings are posted in the southern half of the state, and some areas could see more rain today. omar villafranca is south of baton rouge with the continuing threat. >> reporter: good morning, the water is starting to recede here in sorento, knee high here, but farther down, it is about waist high. later on this morning, search

hillary clinton would. >> the democratic party has run nearly every inner city in this country for 50 years, and run them into financial ruin. virtually every single one. they've ruined the schools. they've driven out the jobs. they've tolerated a level of crime no american should consider acceptable, worse than many third world countries. >> major garrett was at last night's trump rally in wisconsin. >> reporter: good morning. >> what do you think about this, first of all, the shakeup in terms of the staff. what does that mean for trump? >> reporter: well, look, you have to always remember trump is the campaign. trump and his daughter ivanka, her husband and don and eric. they are the essence of the campaign. as we've learned campaign managers can come and go. but steve bannan is a capable person, aggressive and kelly
but neither have had these jobs before. they're being asked to step into roles they are utterly unfamiliar with, on the fly in high pressure situations when the trump campaign has never faced more peril when it comes to its polling and organization position visa vee hillary clinton. but remember, trump runs the campaign first, foremost and always. >> is it a demotion for manafort? >> it's to insulate manafort. the trump campaign decided these week especially about ukraine and lobbying and off the book payments are bad, are likely to get worse. but they're still keeping him in a position of somewhat importance within the campaign. it's an insulation move. but if the stories keep up and the publicity gets worse, they may have to demote him. they're holding onto him while they can. >> major, less than 90 days, what do you make of the timing of this? and what do you think we'll see next of the trump campaign since everybody says donald trump runs
>> reporter: as i just said, he does run his own campaign. and if you look at last night's speech, it was by far the best drafted and best delivered teleprompter speech of the trump campaign. that's kind of a low bar, a well drafted speech, well delivered is sort of what you expect in a presidential campaign. but trump hasn't really oriented himself in that direction. if he continues to do that and it's an enormous if, he may reap some political benefits. but as i've learned can never predict future and you have to be ready for any possible unpredictable event. and that's what i'm going to do. >> major, you said that trump's trying to reach out to african-americans, but he's turned down speaking opportunities. he was invited to speak to the naacp and other significant groups. why do that? >> i don't know. but if you want to look at last night's speech, it was in the most perfect safe zone trump
himself. a speech about african-american pathologies, urban decay, urban blight and despair and democrats being responsible for that in one of the most republican counties in wisconsin, in one of the whitest counties in wisconsin, 96% white according to latest census bureau data about 45 miles outside of milwaukee. trump came to milwaukee to talk about racial unrest, but he didn't go anywhere close to the city. he went to the safest zone both rhetorically and politically he could find. >> donald trump said this week he would create a coalition with russia to defeat isis. he also said he wants to shift nato's focus away from countering russia. and he called president vladimir putin a strong leader. hillary clinton has called putin a bully and she has vowed to stop moscow's meddling in ukraine and syria by punishing russia with more financial sanctions. we asked former defense secretary robert gates what the next president faces from that
leaders who will push forward as long as there's no significant resistance. but he's not suicidal. he's not delusional. he's not crazy. he's a very calculating person who is playing a very poor hand with great skill. >> is putin gaining influence? >> i think that putin certainly has reasserted russia's role. it's pretty clear that any negotiation on syria, if there ever is one, russia will be at the table. and based on the way things are right now, probably in the chair. >> on day one, what does the next president encounter? >> the next president needs to begin with what is putin trying to do. putin is trying to reassert russia as a great power player in the world. if he can do it politically, he will. if he needs to do it militarily, he will. but i think first the president
pushed around by this guy. >> you see the risk of military confrontation. >> the risk is the same as it was during the cold war in this specific respect of a miscalculation or an accident or a mistake that somebody makes that escalates the situation. >> gates said the best case scenario is a new president with a lot of credibility who lays out clear guidelines for what the u.s. will and will not tolerate from russia. charlie,s next president. but we'll see. >> bob gates has also said that, and i mean people who've been in the situation room at the white house when he and hillary clinton were there together during the first term of the obama administration, that the two of them were often on the same page. >> uh-huh. >> bob gates and hillary clinton. >> yes. well, look at what russia's doing right now with using now iranian air bases to bomb syria. i mean, there definitely seems to be pushing the envelope and
confrontation. >> which is gates said, look, he'll do as much as he can until somebody says no more. >> right. we'll see. >> we'll see. >> an interesting meeting for president obama and putin in a few weeks in september. >> certainly more to come on that. u.s. gymnast allie raisman won her sixth olympic medal.

for the 22 veterans. >> reporter: even a class of texas state trooper recruits. the idea is to bring attention to an obstacle facing our men and women in uniform. for years, it was estimated 22 veterans committed suicide each day. retired marine donna win is the deputy director of 22 kill, the foundation behind the challenge. >> when the statistics came out that 22 veterans a day committing sued, it's almost unbelievable. we wanted to where this number came from. >> reporter: one parent of a fallen soldier posted this video to youtube less than a week after losing his marine son. >> six days ago, my son committed suicide after serving in afghanistan. >> reporter: randall stevenson said he took the challenge to reach out to other soldiers in need. >> please. i don't want this to be you. >> reporter: rusty carter, an army veteran who tried to kill himself after returning from two
the soldiers receiving that message. >> if i knew of an organization at the time that was doing what we do at 22 kill, i don't feel that i would have attempted suicide. >> reporter: today, he understands the power of telling vets you are not alone. >> i started to realize that the power that there was by just this advocation and spreading that message. >> reporter: recent the department of veteran affairs lowered the number to an average 20 veterans a day who take their own lives. but for 22 kill, it is still too many. >> one person committing suicide is a pretty big problem. any number is a big problem. >> reporter: two summers ago, the ice bucket challenge also used social media for a cause raising $115 million for a.l.s. research, but the founders of 22 kill say, at this point, they
>> i think they are doing that effectively. just even loring even lowering >> we have so many attention focusing on getting people to go to battle but doing very little to do to transition when they come at home. >> thank you, jim. >> thank you. >> a best selling book "reimagine the railroad" is back in our studio.
now how's that thing supposed to convince anyone to buy a car? it's just full of hot air and doesn't say much. like the labels you see on a lot of chicken packaging. the ones that say "raised without antibiotics." that's just a trick to get you to pay more money. fact is, by federal law, all chickens must be clear of antibiotics before they leave the farm. it's a marketing gimmick...like mr. floppy arms here. though i must say, he is somewhat hypnotic. ype, dale. dale?
selection. it's the underground railroad by coleson whitehead. >> that was two weeks ago when oprah announced her newest book selection. his book debuted at number four on "the new york times" hard fiction cover list. he joins us once again at the table. the last two weeks have been like you, colson? >> i call it o-day plus 14. i walk around and ask my wife, i have this weird feeling of lightness. like it's happiness! so it's a new feeling. i'm trying to wrap my head around it. >> #happiness is announced on his website too.
