barack obama and hillary clinton have not been successful. >> do you know more about isis than they do? >> i think under the leadership of barack obama and hillary clinton, the generals have been reduced to rubble. they have been reduced to a point where it's embarrassing for our country. >> and this morning president obama responded to trump's comments. >> as far as mr. trump, i think i've already offered my opinion. i don't think the guy's qualified to be president of the united states. and every t opinion is confirmed. >> trump did little to fight back criticisms that he is unprepared to serve as the country's next commander-in-chief. in fact, he dug in on previously debunked assertions on the war in iraq and the intervention in libya. while remaining tight lipped on any plans he has for defeating isis. >> the main thing is, i have great judgment. i have good judgment. i know what's going on. i was totally against the war in
magazine from '04. you can look at before that. >> you said this, "we're going to convene my top generals and they'll have 30 days to submit a plan for soundly and quickly defeating isis." so is the plan you've been hiding this whole time asking someone else for their plan? >> no, but when i do come up with a plan that i like and perhaps agrees with mine or maybe doesn't, i may love what the generals come back with. >> but you have y >> i have a plan. >> and the billionaire businessman also had this eyebrow raising moment when he lavished praise on russian president vladimir putin. take a listen. >> when referring to a comment that putin made about you, i think he called you a brilliant leader, you said it's always a great honor to be so nicely complimented by a man so highly respected within his country and beyond. >> well, he does have an 82% approval rating, according to the different pollsters, who, by the way, some of them are based right here.

server. >> it was a mistake to have a personal account. i would certainly not do it again. there is no evidence my system was hacked. classified material has a header, which says "top secret, secret, confidential." none of the e-mails sent or received by me had such a header. i communicated about classified system. >> and now this morning we have the very e-mails clinton exchanged with former secretary of state colin powell released by the democratic head of the house oversight committee. powell in the back and forth told clinton after she sought his advice he did, in fact, have a personal computer and private phone line for e-mails and used it to, "do business with foreign leaders and senior folks in the state department."
release of the e-mail exchange. that came after usa today reported saying the decision to not recommend criminal charges against clinton wasn't a close call writing, "the case itself was not a cliff hanger. there really wasn't a prosecutable case." today on the trail, hillary clinton will hold a rally in the swing state of north carolina and deliver remarks at a baptist church, while trump heads to ohio, as his running mate mik ronald reagan presidential library in california. tensions between russia and the united states continue to escalate not only on the ground, but now in the skies above. a russian fighter jet came within ten feet of a u.s. navy plane over the black sea on wednesday in what the pentagon is calling an unsafe close-range intercept. russian defense ministry says the navy's jet didn't have transponders on.
u.s. plane was conducting routine operations in international air space and did, in fact, have its transponder turned on during the entire fight. pentagon spokesman jeff david has responded to the encounter, which lasted around 19 minutes saying, "these actions have the potential to unnecessarily escalate tensions and could result in a miscalculation or accident. fallout continues over olympian ryan lochte's rio scandal. this time from the international olympic committee. a source with knowledge of the situation has told usa today that the 12-time olympic medalist will face a ten-month suspension and ban from next year's world championship meet. three other u.s. swimmers involve face suspensions, as well, but it's not expected to be as long as lochte's. the action follows a long line of major sponsors that dropped lochte after brazilian authorities revealed evidence
