4:24 pm
yesterday oranges were rolled on her plane. joe is with us. joe, a little shift on the hillary side. she was pretty evasive until two months ago a. why is she opening up. >> she's being called on it and how trustworthy she is. this is an effort to thaw that relationship with the media. when you're on the plane and on a bus, all these things you get more access to the candidate, more informal access. george w. bush, when he ran for the first time, that's where his reputation of someone you would like to have a beer with because she was very friendly with reporters on the plane and
4:25 pm
giving everyone a nickname. i don't think hillary will give everyone nicknames, but they will see a different side of her. on the trump side, he lifted his arbitrary bands on organizations that weren't that well enforced already. he wanted o to eliminate that perception he wasn't allowing people to cover him. is that accurate. >> yes. many of the reporters managed to get into the events somehow. i know a friend who worked at blitzico and the trump -- politco who got tossed out. who goes to a trump speech and starts typing on a laptop.
4:26 pm
it's not a media ball type of thing. once any candidate picks and chooses what media to cover them, that creates a crazy territory texas papers dallas morning news always endorsing the republican. this time they endorsed hillary clinton and not donald trump saying he's not conservative. people have people on the right and -- donald trump has people on the right and left hate him. how is he doing on the poll. >> we should you be aware of national polls. we're concerned about the electorial college and in most of those swing states, clinton is still in the lead, but it's still close and in many
4:27 pm
cases within the margin of error. this is certainly not a cake walk for clinton by any means. we're in the sixth or seventh inning of the ball game right now. >> does the dallas news page matter >> i hope our paper isn't watching. we trust the media that we trust if you will. if it's someone you agree with, you trust them but if you hate the dallas morning news, you don't care. i don't think it's going to swing a lot of people and i don't think texas is going go for hillary clinton. >> thanks joe. >> any time president obama spoke on trade issues. at a town hall event he spoke about his
4:28 pm
support of the transspecific partnership. >> if standards in countries rise, they're not going to be competing with u.s. workers just for who can pay workers the least or put them in the most unsafe conditions. instead they'll be competing for whose working smartest. >> the president went on to say he believes congress will vote in favor of the tpp but the gridlock in washington is workers than usual. still to come why a new set of dormitories is stirring up a fair bit of contra very sal. >> and the efforts to remove slave owners from some area bay schools and that includes washington and jeffer only have i'll talk to the behind -- man

year, september and october georgetown university recently said to apologize for its admission into slave trade in the 19th century. this decision is spurring new debates on campuses across the country. in san francisco there's a push to remove slave owners from the schools. matt haney joins us now on what school names he would like to change and why. >> every school should have a name they're proud of and that's relevant and meaningful and know there's a process available if they want to consider a name change. i think we need to make sure we have names we're proud of that represents the heroes of our community and the diversity of our community and there may be schools that have names that
4:46 pm
are maybe not representative of who we are, have a ugly history and you named a couple around potential slave owners where those schools want to take the opportunity to put you up someone more representative now. >> are you saying george washington high school and monroe and jefferson are not schools we should be proud of. >> i think that should be up to the community. should be given the opportunity if they want to consider a name change to have a school board that is open to that. that's what i'm putting forward. it's a difficult conversation to have, but it's one we need to have. >> if you were to remove george washington from a school, what would you like to see in place. >> i'd like to see somebody
4:47 pm
who is a hero in our community. i thought maya angelou was a great idea. we want to make sure that the people in our community have made tremendous conscienceness triple digits brices. george washington is on dollars and coins and has schools all over the country named after him. maybe the anemia the george washington community maybe feel someone else they want to elevate and they want their students to look to someone else. >> some say this is political correctness out of control. george washington on currency and if a school is not worthy of his name -- photo and schools not worthy of his name, then
4:48 pm
who else. >> many of these school names were chosen 100 plus years ago. many of thunderstorm them don't reflect who is in that school now and what the message we want to community to our kids. that's the opportunity i'm asking for our schools to have that conversation. we don't need to go down the rabbit hole of president's day and all that stuff. i'm calling for who our heroes are in san francisco and who wasn't to have names on our buildings. everyone should be named on our school >> wouldn't that be expensive. >> only if a school wants to go forward in this process. there
4:49 pm
will be cost involved. we'll do it over time. this won't happen at once. we don't do this very often. we rarely update school names. this is an student opportunity for schools to have that conversation. >> what about those who say there's money that could be spent elsewhere, signs and things would have to be changed, so there is a expense. >> if they have that conversation and decide they want to do that, it might be something that happened over time. there have been a number of school systems that change their name in san francisco. it's something that happened over time to bring a representative to the community that reflects our value. right now there's no cost involved. matt haney, thank you so much.
4:50 pm
