thousands of e-mail released this weekend show how the michigan governor's office struggled to handle a water crisis in flint. we've been reporting on this story for months. we have this update. >> reporter: just weeks before governor rick snyder declared flint's corrosive river water unsafe to drink, there was a push to discourage a push back
2:20 am
the governor's aide was told, gentlemen, in the attached is a description of what it would cost to reconnect to detroit water. the estimated cost was $12 million a year. the city eventually did rekent to detroit water in october of 2015, days after the governor declared flint's river water unsafe. the announcement was triggered by an independent study that linked lead poisoning in children to the river water. one thing we keep hearing is that the governor is not involved or is detached. this would be good to show that he's there and he cares. and if we don't announce until he's there, we can avoid the protests and still get the optics. the protests have continued. the fallout was eerily predicted in an e-mail sent more than a year ago when the governor's special prongs projects manager

2:29 am
morning. this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to the overnight news. the biggest day in presidential races comes tuesday. clinton came away with 72% of the vote to 26% of the vote for sanders sanders. trump has the support of 40% of primary voters, compared to 27%
2:30 am
trump is also at 40% in georgia. but in his home state of texas, cruz is out front with 42%. 11 points better than trump. marco rubio's in third. cruz discussed the race on "face the nation." >> i think super tuesday is the most important day of this primary election. it is the most delegates awarded in a single night will be awarded on super tuesday, and i think we are positioned to have a very good night on super tuesday. about 65% of republicans believe that donald trump is not the best candidate to go head to head with hillary clinton, and we are the only campaign that has beaten donald trump, and we're the only candidate that can beat donald trump. if you look at the super tuesday states, we are running neck in neck with donald all across states in super tuesday. it's important that they
2:31 am
candidate who agrees with hillary clinton, who has a very similar record, is not the path to victory. if conservatives stand together, we're going to have a great night on tuesday. >> reporter: if you don't, is he unstoppable? >> there is no doubt, that if he wins everywhere with big margins, then he may well be unstoppable. but if you are at home and you don't want donald trump to be the nominee, then the only candidate who can beat donald is our campaign, and so i would encourage you, even if you like another candidate, stand with us, if you don't want donald to be the nominee, because if and when we stop him on super tuesday, that's how we end up beating donald and nominating a proven conservative, which is what it's going to take to beat hillary. >> reporter: what did you make of chris christie endorseing donald trump? >> i don't think that was a big surprise. i think it was a blow to the rubio campaign. but at the end of the day, the washington establishment is going to go where they're going
2:32 am
this super tuesday is a battle to determine where conservatives go. and i think the debate this week was really some powerful moments of clarity. we saw that donald trump has the same issues on issue after issue as hillary clinton. he agreed with hillary clinton on libya, toppling the government in libya. that led directly to benghazi, led to handing that country over to radical islamism. he agreed with hillary clinton supporting john kerry, he agreed with hillary clinton on being quote, neutral on israel and the palestinians. as president, i'm not going to be neutral. america will stand unapologetically with israel. then he agreed with barack obama and hillary clinton on the tarp bailout of big banks. i think the government ought to be standing with main street, working men and women, then you put on top of that the ethical issues, whether it is refusing to release his taxes, and that's
2:33 am
>> reporter: why is that a problem? >> he said in the debate, he said gosh, i'm being audited for two years, then he said three years, then he said maybe five years. listen, if there's a problem in his taxes, the voters have a right to know. because come september, october, the general election, folks in the media are going to make a heyday about any problems in his taxes, and voters have a right to know. and the excuse that he's being audited, that makes it more important for him to release his taxes so the voters can see, mitt romney suggested there could be a bombshell there. i don't know if there is or not, but donald is hiding them from the voters and he owes candor to the voters. >> reporter: speaking about candor, he's said some bracing things about you. >> donald is a charming person. i mean, he can be fun. charming things about you. >> he can turn on you. overnight he can turn on you and get nasty and personal and virks.
2:34 am
entertainer. i laugh him off. it's like going to the circus and seeing the acrobats and dancing bears. he's willing to say things that are patently false. so, for example at the debate this week, he backed off of his health care position for 20 years. for 20 years he has agreed with hillary clinton and bernie sanders on socialized medicine saying obamacare doesn't go far enough. he wansts the government to pay for everyone's health care and control it, is it true or false the government saidhould pay for everyone's health care. we had video of him a few months ago saying exact lit opposite. and what i think the debate this week did is gave real clarity to the voters, that to beat hillary, we need a consistent conservative, someone who has stood for free market principles, who has stood for
2:35 am
critically, who's stood for the working men and women of this country. you know, you look at, we talked a lot about donald's record on immigration. there's iranony that he made the center of his campaign on immigration. he faced a judgment for a conspiracy to hire illegal aliens. just this week, news broke that he has hired foreign workers at his fancy hotel in florida. he did an interview where he said you can't find americans to do these jobs, to be waiters or waitresses or bellhops. what ridiculous nonsense. the new york times reported roughly 300 americans applied for those jobs. he only hired 17. instead he brought in foreign workers. and i think the american men and women are getting hammered right now. they want someone they can trust to stand with them. and part of the reason so many
2:36 am
our campaign is i'm the only one who lid the battle against amnesty, led the battle to secure the borders, led the battle for the working men and women. >> let me ask you about your position with immigration, bill o'reilly presented you with a hypothetical about somebody who overstayed their visa and he said president cruz is going to send the feds to his house, take him out and put him on a plane, and you said you better believe it. but in an interview with jake tapper you said we don't have a system that knocks on doors in every case in america. in one case you're knocking on doors and the other you aren't. >> we don't have storm troopers to knock on the doors of every american citizen. but when we have evidence that a particular person has committed a crime, we send law enforcement to apprehend them. and the specific question was visa overstay. right now current law requires a biometric entry system when you come in on a visa.
2:37 am
ignoring federal law. 40% of illegal immigration is not people who cross the borders illegally, it's people who come on a visa and never leave. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back. sweaters stretch into muumuus. and pilled cardigans become pets. but it's not you, it's the laundry. protect your clothes from stretching, fading, and fuzz. ...with downy fabric conditioner... it not only softens and freshens, it helps protect clothes from the damage of the wash. so your favorite clothes stay your favorite clothes. downy fabric conditioner. wash in the wow. sometimes we use k-y ultragel to enhance my body's natural moisture so i can get into it a bit quicker.

2:39 am
as we head into super tuesday, marco rubio's looking to went his first primary state and ripping into drum, calling him a con man. john deckerson spoke with both rubio and trump for "face the nation". >> i'd like to ask you about a washington post headline that says rubio's strategy for super tuesday is survival. do you agree with that characterization characterization? >> no, i don't. we're not the front runner, brother' an underdog. and i relish that. i've been an underdog in personal life and in politics. they're awarded proportionally. and we're going to move on. here's what's never going to
2:40 am
there's never going to be a time when the republican party rallies around and says you have to get out for purposes of rallying around donald trump. he's not a republican, he's not a conservative. he's trying to pull off the biggest scam in american political history, a conjob where he's trying to take over the republican party by telling people he's somebody he's not. we're going to be in this race as long as it takes, as many states to ensure that i'm the nominee and that donald trump never gets the 1,236 delegates which is what he needs to be the nominee. >> your campaign's got and lot scrappier. is it too little too late? >> i don't think so. for a couple reasons. one, i never wanted it to get to this point. i hoped by its own course, by the way media covers politics, people would open this eyeeir eyes and see who he really is. but he's been able to fool a
2:41 am
into believing that he is something that he's not. he is a world class con artists. he conned all these people who signed up for trump university. now he's trying to persuade us that he's fighting for american workers, but he's hiring foreign workers for his hotels, that he's going to bring back jobs from mexico and china, but he's creating jobs in china and mexico, because that's where all the suits and ties that he sells are made. it's a scam. and we're going to unveil it and reveal it and the more people learn about that, the less support he's going to come. >> you said he's running a big scam, it's a con job. how can you retain the position that if he's the nominee you'll support him? >> because he's never going to be the nominee. so i'm not worried about a hypothetical that's never going to happen. >> well, i think you understand
2:42 am
you pick up any paper, and it's always talking about how are we going to overthrow donald trump? i'm representing millions of people that really feel angry an disen franchised. and these are great people. i love them. and we're not being treated right. the republican party is not treating me right. and they're not treating the people that i represent right. >> let me ask you a question about their questionis question of taxes. what about releasing a summary? that's sometimes what candidates will do, show your income, charitable deductions, tax rate, would you do that? >> i've already released my financials, which are massive, and by the way, we've shown a tremendous company, it's over $10 billion in net worth that i built with a very, very small starter loan years ago. and i've already done that, and that's down and filed in the federal elections office, and if people want to see it, they can go see it. and obviously, all of your coe
2:43 am
great detail and i've been given great reviews for what i've done. you don't learn very much from tax -- hey, john, you don't learn very much from tax returns, let me tell you right now. but when you're under audit, you don't give your papers. i've been under audit for so many years. every year i get audited for maybe ten years, 12 years. i think i'm being singled out. and it's not a fair situation. but the irs audits me every year. i have friends who are very wealthy, i say, do you get audited? they don't know what i'm talking about. >> it's been raised about foreign workers in florida. the "new york times" said there were people who wanted the job. and you said you could only find foreign workers because there weren't americans who wanted the job. but the new york times said there were people who applied. >> they have to be qualified. it's very, very hard to hire
2:44 am
and a lot of people don't want the job because it's a three or four month job. it's very hard to get people. it's just one of those things. everybody is working. then during the off-season, it's easy, but we don't have the people during the off seenason, because the club closes. a lot of people don't want a part-time job. >> you say people should come back to america, build their products here, have american workers, but why wouldn't those companies say a version of what you're saying, if they can't find the workers here and they have to go other places, why wouldn't they do what you're saying? >> they're full-time jobs. a lot of the people that we've made offers to and where we make offers, when they hear it's a part-time job or a four month or five-month job, i understand they're not interested. but what you don't talk about is the thousands of people that i do hire. i have thousands and thousands of people on my payroll, over
2:45 am
thousands of people that work for me. you're picking up one club where it has a high season where it's very, very hard, it's very hard to get people in palm beach during the season, during the social season. >> michael hayden is the director of national security agency said if you ordered u.s. forces to kill the families of terrorists, which you've suggested and to use water boarding as you've also suggested that they would refuse you. what's your response to that? >> i don't know what he means by refuse. i can only tell you, there's a lot of bad things going on. they're chopping off head the in syria and all over the middle east. isis is doing a number of, plenty of others beyond isis is doing it now. all i know is when they start chopping off heads we have to be very frm. we have to be very strong. we have to be very vinl length. and i heard the statement and disagree. we have to be very strong. can you imagine these people that chop off heads of
2:46 am
people and do it routinely and drown people in big steel metal cages, they leave it in for a half hour and pull it up and everybody's dead. when they hear us talking about water boarding, give may a breake a break. >> the cbs news will be right back. sometimes we use k-y ultragel to enhance my body's natural moisture so i can get into it a bit quicker. and when i know she's into it, i get into it and... feel the difference with k-y ultragel. >> i'm alex trebek. if you're age 50 to 85, this is an important message. write down the number on your screen. the lock i want to talk

2:49 am
hislop sided loss to hillary clinton in saturday's south carolina primary will not be repeated in the super tuesday states. he got only 26% of the vote to clinton's 73%. in virginia, it shows sanders trailing clinton. sanders discussed the race with john dickerson for "face the nation". >> it was a disappointing loss in south carolina last night. virginia, texas. when analysts look at that map, they say there as not a plausle path for you to the nomination, what is your response? >> my response is we're in minnesota. i think we're going to win in minnesota, colorado, and massachusetts and vermont, and i think we've got a number states coming up that we're going to do extremely well and possibly win, including california and new york state. so i think we do have a path to victory. now i won't tell you that we
2:50 am
very badly yesterday in south carolina. i congratulate secretary clinton on her victory, but john, i think for us, that is about as bad as it's going to get. >> when you look at the progress you've made, which surpasses all analysts who would have looked at your campaign from the beginning, even given the progress you've made, is there enough time left? you've mentioned some places where you think you've done well, but isn't time kind of running out? >> well, no. i don't think so. i think you've got, on tuesday, we're going to have over 800 delegates being selected. i think we're going to went a very good share of those delegates. i think you have major states coming up. and i think the important point is that people throughout this country are resonating to our message, and the message is that super pacs and a corrupt campaign finance system, destroying american democracy, we're proud that we have received 4 million individuaua contributions, more than any candidate in american history at
2:51 am
people understand that the economy is rigged. they're working longer hours for low wages, almost all is going to the people on top. and even if south carolina, as badly as we did, and we did very badly, we won the votes of people 29 years of age or younger. the future of the democratic party, the future of this country, is involving young people in the political process, getting them to stand up for their rights, dealing with student debt, which i got to tell you is just crushing people all over this country, making public colleges and universities tuition free, those are the ideas we are bringing out, demanding the wealthy and large corporations start paying their fair share of taxes. this is what younger people, working class people want. that is the future of the democratic party. >> but in order to create the kind of movement you've been suggesting and that you want,
2:52 am
african-american voters, and your economic justice message just didn't seem to hit home in south carolina and in other places. isn't that kind of a fatal flaw? >> well, no question, i mean, let me be very clear. we did really, really badly with older african-american voters. i mean, we got decimated. on the other hand, if you look at the younger people, african-american younger people, and whites, we did much better. so, again, i think our message, the clinton campaign was very strong, remember, this is their fourth campaign in south carolina. two for bill clinton, two for hillary clinton. they had it well organized. they did well tonight, i congratulate them. we came into that state polls. hoe. but i want to thank all of our supporters, the members of the south carolina state legislature who stuck with us.
2:53 am
>> our polls show that one bright spot for you is that a big majority think you are more honest and trustworthy than hillary clinton. what does it say to you, though, that voters may believe that and yet are voting for hillary clinton? >> well, i think people cast their votes for a number of reasons. i think, if you look at your polls, you'll probably find t tt many, many people think that our views are closer to what they believe the future of america should be. our views are closer on economic issues. a lot of those polls come down to demographics, to age, to how much money you are making. look, the bottom line is, we started this campaign, john, 3% in the polls. in the last two weeks, that means in national polls actually had us in the lead or reasonably close to secretary clinton. if you were with me yesterday in texas, you would have seen
2:54 am
we had a wonderful turnout in rochester, minnesota last night. i believe we have a lot of momentum. sometimes the media says this

thon most ducks fly south for the winter, but one very special duck just gets under the covers. steve hartman found this heartwarming story on the road. >> reporter: a lot of kids go to the park to see ducks. but kylie brown of freeport, maine takes her duck to see the park. snowflake comes here to swim around the pond and returns when called. because snowflake truly believes kylie is his mother, and the duck is not alone in this delusion. >> i'm his mom. >> reporter: are' not really his mom. >> yes, i'm his mom. >> reporter: how did you first
2:57 am
>> that he was a duck? >> reporter: no. kylie is unbearably cute. and since i never did recover to ask that question again, let he just tell you that kylie first noticed snowflake's attachment the day the browns brought her home last summer. >> look, look, look, he follows her. >> reporter: for whav reason, the duck imprinted on kylie and just had to be by her side no matter what the hour. when snowflake refused to stay in the back yard, her parntss had no choice but to give him a diaper and make him a house duck. >> he goes everywhere the ducks are allowed and almost everywhere they're not allowed. i don't know if you have a 2-year-old or 4-year-old that won't leave home without h h blankie? she will not leave home without her duck. at that point, nothing's negotiable. >> reporter: he goes to the beach in summer and sledding in winter. he's gone to soccer practice,

3:02 am
prepared to run as a third party candidate if necessary. >> the republican party is not treating me right. and they're not treating the people that i represent right. >> reporter: and there's some evidence to support trump's claim. a new cbs news battleground poll found that more than half of republicans in three super tuesday states, georgia, texas, and virginia, say the republican party does not represent them well. that poll also showed that voters in those states believe trump offers the most optimistic message of any republican still in the race. in alabama tonight, trump picked up the endorsement of jeff sessions, the state's junior senator and long-time adviser to trump on immigration policy. >> major garrett, thank you very much. hillary clinton expanded her lead over bernie sanders with a primary victory in south carolina last night. julianna goldman has more on how clinton won and what it means for sanders. >> reporter: hillary clinton stormed into arkansas and tennessee on sunday, setting her

fiercest line in the war in syria. but then it fell to the government and the war moved on, leaving a wasteland and hundreds of thousands of homeless people. in some parts, residents are trickling back, reestablishing the essentials of life, commerce, even school. this is day two of the partial cease-fire, and people are holding their breath, hoping it will hold. right on the edge of town, we can hear the sounds of fighting, though. but with no monitors anywhere, it's impossible to say who is attacking whom. the newest reports of violations reveal what a fine thing peace is. the lasting peace necessary to rebuild in a place like this still feels a long way off. elizabeth palmer, homs. in iraq, dozens were killed

thousands of e-mails released this weekend show how the michigan governor's office struggled to handle a water crisis in flint. adrian adiaz has been reporting for months and has this update. >> reporter: just weeks before goifrn snyder declared the river water r safe to drink, a deputy tried to discourage a switch back to the old water-source. treasury deputy told the governor's aide, gentlemen, in
3:20 am
what it would cost to reconnect to detroit-provided water, i assume/hope no one is seriously considering that option. the estimated cost was $12 million a year. the city eventually did reconnect to detroit water in october of 2015. days after the governor declared flint's river water unsafe. the announcement was triggered by an independent study that linked lead poisoning in children to the water. one thing we keep hearing is that the governor is not involved or is detached. this would be good to show that he's there and cares. if we don't announce until he's there, we can avoid the protests and still get the optics. had but protests have continued. the fallout was eerily predicted in an e-mail sent more than a year ago when the governor's special pro jebs manager wrote,
3:21 am
crisis waiting to explode nationally. friday, the governor admitted that he should have been more directly involved back when his aides first e-mailed about the problem. >> that's where i'm kicking myself every day. i wish i would have asked more questions. i wish i wouldn't have accepted answers. i'm not going to have that happen again. >> reporter: snyder says he's working to expand health care coverage for flint residents and subsidize their water bills. adrianna diaz, cbs news, chicago.

jeff glor. news." news. i'm jeff glor. the biggest day in the presidential primary season comes tomorrow. super tuesday. 12 states involved. democrat bernie sanders is promising a come back after his big loss to hillary clinton in south carolina's primary. clinton came away with 73% of the vote and 26% for sanders. super tuesday could bring donald trump closer to the nomination. in virginia, our battleground tracker shows trump with 40% of
3:30 am
with 27% for marco rubio. in georgia, trum is at 40%. but in his home state of texas, cruz is out front with 422%%. cruz discussed the race with john deckickerson on "face the nation". >> i think tuesday is the most important day of this primary election. the most delegates will be awarded in wumone night on super tuesday. 65% of republicans believe donald trump is not the best candidate to go head to head with hillary clinton, and we are the only campaign that has beaten donald trump, and we're the only candidate that can beat donald trump. if you look at the super tuesday
3:31 am
tuesday. conservatives stand together, night -- >> if they don't, is he unstoppable? >> there ins no doubt that if donald trump steams through but if you are at home and you don't want donald trump to be the republican nominee, then the only candidate who can beat donald is our campaign. so even if you like another candidate, stand with us, if you don't want donald to be the nominee. because if and when we stop helm on super tuesday, that's how we end up beating donald and nominating a proven conservative, which is what it's going to take to beat hillary. >> what did you make of chris christie endorsing donald trump? >> i don't think that was a big surprise. i think it was a blow to the rubio campaign, but at the end of the day, the washington establishment is going to go where they're going to go.
3:32 am
a battle to determine where conservatives go. and i think the debate this week was some powerful moments of clarity. donald trump substantively has the same issues as hillary clinton. he agreed had clinton on toppling the government in libya it led to handing that government over to radical islamism. he agreed with hillary clinton hon being quote neutral between israel and the palestinians. as president, i won't be neutral. america will stand unapologetically with israel. and on domestic policy, donald trump agreed with barack obama and hillary clinton on the wall street bailout, the tarp bailout of big banks. i think the government ought to be standing with main street, working men and women. and then you put on top of that the ethical issues, whether it
3:33 am
>> why is that a problem if he doesn't release his taxes? >> he said in the debate, gosh, i'm being audited for two years, then he said three years, then he said maybe five years. if there's a problem in his taxes, the voters have a right to know. folks in the media are going to naek a heyday about any problems in his taxes, and primary voters have a right to know. and hess excuse that he's audited makes it more important. mitt romney suggested there could be a bomb slel thereshell there. i don't know if there is or not, but he owes candor to the voters. >> speaking of candor, he said some pretty bracing things about you. and you said you still like him. >> donald is a charming person. >> he didn't say charming things about you. >> he can turn on you and get nasty and personal and vicious.
3:34 am
i laugh it off. it's like going to the circus and seeing the acrobats and dancing bears. he's willing to say things that are patently false. so, for example, at the debate this week, he backed off of his health care position for 20 years. for 20 years, he has agreed with hillary clinton and bernie sanders on socialized medicine saying obamacare doesn't go far enough. he wants the government to pay for everyone's health care and control it. and he and i had a back and forth where i asked, is it true or false that he said the government should pay for everyone's health care. he said it's false. listen, within minutes, we put out a video contrasting what he said, with video a few months earlier saying exactly the opposite, and what i think the debate this week did is gave real clarity to the voters, that to beat hillary we need a consistent conservative, someone who has stood for free market principles, who has stood for
3:35 am
critically, who stood for the working men and women of this country, you know, you look at, we talked a lot about donealddonald's record on immigration. given that he faced a $1 million court judgment for being part of a conspiracy to hire illegal aliens, given that just this week news broke that he is hiring foreign workers at his fancy hotel in florida. and he claims, you know, he did an interview after the debate where he said, well, gosh, you can't find americans to do these jobs, to be weighters or waitresses or bellhops. what ridiculous nonsense of the "new york times" reported roughly 300 americans applied for those jobs. he only hired 17. instead, he brought in foreign workers, because they're captive workers because you can pay them less because they can't leave. and i think the american men and women are getting hammered right now. they want someone to stand with
3:36 am
many conservatives are organizing behind our campaign is i am the one who has led the battle against amnesty, to secure the border and for the working men and women.o'reilly presented you with a hypothetical. in an interview, give and similar scenario, you said we don't have a system that knocks on doors of every person in america. seems like in one case you were not knocking on the doors and getting them and on the other you are. >> we don't have storm troopers that knock on the door of every single american person. but when we have evidence that a particular person has committed a crime, we send law enforcement to apprehend them. and the specific question was visa overstays. right now, current law requires a biometric exit entry system when you come in on a visa.
3:37 am
ignoring federal law. 40% of illegal immigration is not people who cross the borders illegally. it's people who come on a visa and never leach.

3:40 am
there's never going to be a time where the republican party rallies around and says you have to get out or any one has to get out for purposes of rallying around donald trump. he is not a conservative. he's trying to pull off the biggest scam in american political history, basically a con job where he's trying to take over the republican party telling people he's someone he's not. we're going to be as long as it takes, as many states as it takes to make sure i'm the nominee and that donald trump never gets the 1,236 delegates. >> your campaign has got and l l more scrappy with donald trump. the question from some, though, is it too little, too late? >> i don't think so. i neff wanted it to get to this point. i hoped by its own course, by the way the media covers politics people would open their eyes and see who he really is. but he's been able to fool a
3:41 am
into believing that he is something that he is not. donald trump is a world class con artist. he kond all these people that signed up for trump university. now he's trying to do the same thing for republican votes. he's trying to convince them that he'll stand up to illegal immigration, but he hires illegal immigrants, he hires foreign workers for his hotels. that he's going to bring back jobs from china and mexico, but in fact he creates jobs in mexico and china because that's where all the suits and ties that he sells are made. and the more people learn about to have. >> you said he's running a big scam, it's a con job. how can you possibly still retain the position that if he's the nominee you'll support him? >> because he's never going to be the nominee, so i'm not worried about a hypothetical that's never going to happen. >> well, i think you understand
3:42 am
you pick up any paper and it's always talking about how are we going to overthrow donald trump. i'm representing a tremendous, i'm representing millions of people that really feel angry and disenfranchised. and these are great people, and i love them. and i tell you what, we're not being treated right. the republican party is not treating me right. and they're not treating the people that i represent right. >> let me ask you a question about this question of taxes. you're being audited. you said you won't release your returns. what about releasing a summary? that's what candidates will do, it will show your deductions, your tax rate, will you do that? >> of' already released my financials, which are massive, and by the way, we've shown a tremendous company. it's over 10 billion in net worth that i've built with a small starter loan years ago. that's down and filed in the federal elections office. and if they want to see it they
3:43 am
of your cohorts have gone through it in great detail. you don't learn very much from tax, hey, john, you don't learn very much from tax returns, let me tell you right now. but when you're under audit, you don't give your papers. i've been under audit for so many years. every year i get audited for i think ten years, 12 years. i've been audited. and i think i'm being singled out, and it's not a fair situation. i have friends that are very wealthy, and i say, you get audited? they don't know what i'm talking about. it's very unfair. >> let me ask you, it's also been raised about foreign workers in florida. the "new york times" said there were people who wanted the job. you said basically you could only find foreign workers because there weren't americans who wanted the jobs. but the "new york times" said there were beampeople who did want the jobs. >> d's very hard to hire qualified people.
3:44 am
the job because it's a three or the season. we call it the hot season, the high season. it's hard to get people. everybody is working. and then during the offseason, it's easy, but we don't have the people during the offseason, because the club closes during the offseason. part-time job. >> are' saying companies should come babb here, build their products here, have american workers. why wouldn't they say a version of what you're saying? they can't find workers. >> they're full-time jobs. when you're talking about that kind of thing you're talking about full-time jobs. a lot of the people we've made offers to, when they hear it's part-time job or a four month or five-month job, i understand this, they're not interested. they're american people, they're not interested. what you don't hear about is the thousands of people that i do hire. i have thousands and thousands
3:45 am
over the years, i have had tens of thousands of people who work for me. are' picking out one club that has a high season, and it's very, very hard to get people in palm beach during the season, the social season. >> michael hayden said that if you ordered u.s. forces to kill the families of terrorists, which you've suggested and also to use water boarding as you've also suggested, that they would refuse you. what's your response to that? >> i don't know what he means by refuse. i can only tell you there's a lot of bad things going on. they're chopping off heads in syria and all over the middle east. isis is doing a number and plenty of others beyond isis are doing it now. and all i know is that when they start chopping off heads, we have to be very firm. we have to be very strong. we have to be very vigilant. i heard his statement and we have to be very strong. can you imagine these people that chop off heads of
3:46 am
people and they do did routinely and drown people in big steel metal cages. they drown them. they leave it in for a half hour and pull it up and everybody's dead. when they talk about us with water boarding, they have to give me a break. if we're not going to be tougher, we're never going to win this war. the cbs"cbs overnight news" will be right back. say, have you seen all the amazing technology in geico's mobile app? mobile app? look. electronic id cards, emergency roadside service, i can even submit a claim. wow... yep, geico's mobile app works like a charm. geico. expect great savings and a whole lot more. sometimes we use k-y ultragel to enhance my body's natural moisture so i can get into it a bit quicker. and when i know she's into it, i get into it and...

very badly yesterday in south carolina. i congratulate secretary clinton on her victory, but for us, that is about as bad as it's going to get. >> when you look at the progress you've made, which surpasses all analysts who would have looked at your campaign from the beginning, even given the progress of' madeyou've made, is there enough time left? isn't time kind of running out? >> well, no, i don't think so. on tuesday we're going to have 800 delegates selected. i think we're going to win a very good share of those. we have major states coming up. and the important point is that people throughout this country are resonating to our message, and the message is that super pacs and a corrupt campaign finance system are destroying american democracy. we're proud that we have received 4 million individual contributions, more than any candidate in american history at

people understand that the economy is rigged. they're working longer hours for low wages, all the income and wealth, almost all, is going to the people on top. even in south carolina, as badly as we did, and we did very badly, we won the votes of people 29 years of age or younger. the future of the democratic party, the future of this country is involving young people in the political process, getting them to stand up for their rights, dealing with student debt, which i got to tell you is just crushing people all over this country. making public colleges and universities tuition free, those are the ideas we are bringing out, demanding the wealthy and large corporations start paying their fair share of taxes. this is what younger people, working class people want. that is the future of the democratic party. >> but in order to create the kind of movement you've been suggesting and that you want, you're going to need to attract

>> our polls show that one bright spot for you is that a big majority think that you are more honest and trustworthy than hillary clinton. what does it say to you, though, that voters three believe that, and yet are voting for hillary clinton? >> well, i think people cast their votes for a number of reasons. i think if you look at your polls, you'll probably find that many, many people think that our views are closer to what they believe the future of america should be. issues. a lot of those polls come down to demographics, to age, to how much money you are making. look, at the bottom line is we started theiris campaign, john, 3% in the polls in the last few weeks we've been in the lead or reasonably close to secretary clinton. in texas, would you have seen 10,000 people out in austin,
