3:30 am
this is the cbs overnight news. welcome to the overnight news. donald trump hogged the spot light at the republican presidential debate in iowa last night and wasn't even there. he made good on boycotting the event over a feud with moderator kelly. moef most of the g.o.p. candidates were there, trump was two miles away. joined by huckabee and rick santoro. >> we had about 24 hours to put this together. it was very, very quick. we will hear from some very special people. this is an honor.
3:31 am
this is a really honor. and i didn't want to the be here, i have to be honest. i wanted to be about five minutes away. i've enjoyed that. all of the online polls said i have done very well with that, with the debates, and i've had a kick with it. but you have to stick up for your rights. when you're treated badly, you have to stick up for your rights. you have to do it. and whether we like it or not, whether it's something we want to do or not, and that's what our country has to do. as an example, iran the way they've been treating us with this deal, it's one of the worst deals i've ever seen negotiated under any circumstances and we just take it. we have to stick up for ourselves as people and we have to stick up for our country when we're being mistreated. remember that. and i have to go a little step further and say that fox has been extremely nice and the last
3:32 am
nice, the last number of hours, actually. [ laughter ] is and they've want med there. they said how about now. how about now. can you come over. i said hasn't it already started. we actually thought we would let them start and we wanted to be about 15 minutes into that hour so by now they are all tuned in. look at all the cameras, it's like the academy awards. [ cheers and applause ] this is the academy awards. we're actually told we have more cameras than they do by quite a bit. so that's sort of impressive. and you know what, that's really in honor of our vets. but they have been very nice. they wanted me to go and apologize and everything else. once this started, it's for our vets, there's nothing i can do. and you know what, i don't know, is it for me personally, a good thing, a bad thing, will i get more or less votes, nobody knows, who the hell knows, but it's for our vets, and you're going to like it because we raised over $5 million in one
3:33 am
day! [ cheers and applause ] over $5 million. so. so, that's not so bad. you know, my whole theme is make america great again. that's what we're going to do. and we wouldn't be here if not for our vets. and our vets are being mistreated. illegal immigrants are treated better in many cases than our vets and it's not going to happen any more. not going to happen any more. so once this ball started rolling we couldn't stop it. literally this took place in less than 24 hours to do this. i se sai, i won't do the debate out of respect for myself. it would be wrong. but i love iowa. we got to do something. we actually raised close to $6 million to be honest.
3:34 am

3:35 am
stupid, fat, and ugly and then you're a terrible surgeon, now that we've gotten the donald trump portion out of the way. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i want to thank everyone here for showing the men and women of iowa the respect to show up and make the case to the people of this state and the people of the country why each of us believe we would make the best commander in chief. [ cheers and applause ] . >> the campaign in a sense turned into the battle for the soul of the republican party. pragmatic versus principle. you say you can unite all of the factions inside the g.o.p., how? >> let's begin by being clear what this campaign is about. it's not about donald trump. he's an entertaining guy. greatest show on earth. this campaign is about the greatest country in the world
3:36 am
and a president that destroyed thing that's made america special. barack obama wants to change america. barack obama wants america to be more like the rest of the world. we don't want to be like the rest the world. we want to the be the united states of america. and that is why hillary clinton cannot win this election. hillary clinton this week said barack obama would make a great supreme court justice, the guy who systematically violates the constitution on the supreme court. i don't think so. i will defeat is hillary clinton and turn this country around once and for all after the seven years that is barack obama. >> governor bush it is hard for someone of your pedigree to avoid being called establishment. isn't that part of the problem, three others are 134rsplitterine main stream republican vote and
