tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  February 4, 2016 5:00pm-6:01pm PST

5:00 pm
don't blow your top. blow a trumpet at the top of the donald. a swedish ad agency created this for fun. how do you say trumpertantrum in swedish? jeanne moos, cnn, new york. >> thanks for joining us. "ac 360" starts right now. good evening from manchester, new hampshire, the granite state, site of the first presidential primary of the 2016 campaign. just five days away. the candidates had multiple events scheduled as they try to reach out to as many voters as possible. that brought donald trump to theo's restaurant where he took questions from locals and from me. i asked him about his loss in iowa after which he went on twitter accusing ted cruz of fraud and calling for a new vote. >> you came in second in iowa to ted cruz. let's talk about cruz. you have basically accused him
5:01 pm
of fraud, of stealing the election in iowa. you talk about wanting a new election there. have you spoken to republican party officials about that? >> i'm into new hampshire now. it's one of those things. sort of a lot of strange things. i like ben carson very much. and he got pretty roughed up, frankly. although it affected me maybe more than ben. but i'm so much -- because i've been here now for two days, i'm so much into this, into new hampshire, that i just don't knair that anymore. >> one more on ted cruz. he did say that you had a trumpertantrum. have you ever heard that phrase? >> i haven't actually. i love that phrase. i think that's great. i love that phrase. >> you can trademark that phrase. >> i actually like that. i may have to. i'm going to trademark it before he can. >> you'll hear a lot from donald trump. he took questions from people in that restaurant on a wide variety of subjects. we'll play that extensive interview in this hour. first, we want to get new polling just out. we go to tom foreman for that. >> here are the leaders in the
5:02 pm
latest polling out this evening from here at cnn and wmur. and let's look on the republican side first at what's happening with donald trump up here. he is still the clear leader as we might expect. he is up there at 29%. that is a little different than from before iowa. if you look before iowa votes, 30%. a slight decrease. almost a 7% margin of error in this poll right now. that could account for some of that. rubio benefited from iowa. he's at 18%. before he was just at 11% and cruz also moved up one tick in all of this. not enough, though, to keep from being pushed out of the slot by rubio who is rising rapidly. kasich, 12%, christie, fiorina and carson. people are settling in on whom they absolutely will not vote for. and donald trump also wins that category. 37% of new hampshire republican
5:03 pm
voters saying will not vote for him under any circumstances. cruz, 13%. bush, 7%. rubio, 5% and on down the line. important to note here, in our polling, almost 60% of the voters in new hampshire are still not settled exactly on whom they're going to pick. >> we saw a lot of that in theo's restaurant today. a lot of undecided voters asking questions of trump. we'll show that to you. what do the numbers tell us about the democratic race? >> it's exactly the opposite in that about 60% of democrats say they are settles. they know who they are voting for. that's good news for bernie sanders because he's at 61% in terms of his support compare that to where he was before iowa, 57%. clinton eked out a tiny win in iowa. hasn't helped her here. she's down to 30%. same question, who will you not vote for? the margin of error there about
5:04 pm
6.5% on that. among new hampshire democratic voters, who would you not vote for? 19% say they will not vote for clinton under any circumstances. that is a slight improvement for her because she was at 20%. and sanders, he has doubled because he was at 4%. now about 8% said they will not vote for him. anderson? >> tom, thanks very much. we're going to hear what donald trump thinks about new hampshire in a moment. first, we want to hear what our experts think about the polling. gloria borger, nia mallika henderson and david gergen. it's interesting these new polls. certainly good news for donald trump who feels pretty confident here baseod what he said to me today. >> it seems like he should feel pretty confident. there's a large margin of error in these polls. it's fluid. we saw that rubio got a bounce, but the important thing for donald trump in new hampshire is that he didn't tank, right? he still is doing very well. and, you know, i was at a cruz
5:05 pm
event today, and there are lots of people at this event who were saying i'm not sure between cruz and trump. there seems to be a lot of indecision between those two. >> interesting. david, trump clearly is holding on to his lead. how worried should he be about marco rubio's momentum, or even ted cruz for that matter? >> he should be definitely worried about marco rubio. rubio has come up seven points from the last poll here in new hampshire. and he still is pretty far behind. but he does have what they are calling marco momentum. and if he were to catch trump or even come close, it's going to be a big victory. trump has to win this. if rubio can come close, that's going to be a big, big lift for him. could be trouble for trump down the road. >> nia, jeb bush campaigning with his mom barbara bush in southern new hampshire. you're outside that event. gloria was just there as well.
5:06 pm
we'll hear from mrs. bush in our next hour. she made a point of saying her son isn't a bragger. do people interpret that as a dig at donald trump? >> i think probably so. part of her larger complimenting her son. she called him the nicest, most loyal person she knows. she said that he is everything that we need in a president. obviously, jeb bush has put everything in this race here in new hampshire. his mom is here. that's how important this race is here. there's this implicit critique of donald trump. you heard that hear at this jeb bush event but also at other events i visited today. chris christie making that same point. this idea. being a big talker versus a doer. those are the critiques we're seeing. jeb bush not doing so well in the recent poll we have out from cnn and orc. he's got some ground to make up in the next days. >> gloria othe democratic side, more than 2-1 lead for bernie sanders. there's this battle, an
5:07 pm
expectations battle, a game being played with the sanders campaign and clinton campaign. >> right now the expectations are so low for hillary clinton that if she were to lose by less than 20 points, they would claim that it was a victory. >> they are trying to keep them low. >> she kind of benefits from that. but don't forget in 2008, she won here in new hampshire. >> down 18 points on obama. >> and won by three points or so. it wasn't a huge victory but it's not as if new hampshire is inhospitable to hillary clinton. it's just that they seem to really like bernie sanders. >> the clinton campaign is saying bernie sanders is from neighboring vermont. >> bernie sanders still considers himself an rnd dog. >> he'll always say he's the underdog and probably is if you look ahead towards south carolina and the rest. right now, hillary clinton has a fight on her hands here. she eked out a victory in iowa.
5:08 pm
if she can come close to bernie sanders here, they will consider that a huge win. >> david if you were bernie sanders, do you try to build up your support in new hampshire over the next few days to secure a blockbuster win or try to move some time in resources to south carolina or nevada? >> go full blockbuster. do it big because if he can win by 30 points, that would be astonishing, i think. she needs to get this. we've never seen a person go to the white house who got beat in new hampshire by 30 points. it should cause some damage for her. she should be coming up now. she is campaigning hard there. it's a good state for her. she needs to close this gap. for bernie sanders if he can pull out 30 points, it's hard to believe he could do that, but if he could, that will be a big, big, big victory. >> and the clinton campaign trying to manage expectations. saying bernie sanders from
5:09 pm
vermont. is that a good enough excuse? it's not like she's some unknown candidate to gloria's point. she won near 2008 and her husband has a long history as well. >> that's right. and that's counterprogramming that we're hearing from bernie sanders, a campaign, i think, what we know about hillary clinton's schedule, she'll go to flint, michigan on sunday and try to push for the funding effort the democrats have put forward to address that water crisis there. so that tells you, i think, she is thinking beyond new hampshire. she's thinking about a more diverse democratic base, particularly in south carolina and even in nevada. she'll return to new hampshire after making a trip to flint, michigan. but i think that tells you she's running on two tracks here trying to keep her eye in new hampshire and a foot here and not let it get too far away from her but also look ahead to south carolina and that southern firewall that we've heard so much about. >> nia mallika henderson, david
5:10 pm
gergen and gloria borger. donald trump talking directly to voters. a fascinating conversation we had with donald trump and we had with voters and donald trump talking in new hampshire voters in a restaurant in manchester. up next, why he says losing in iowa was actually a win, and his response to a voter who asked specifically what he'll do about health care.

welcome back. we're live in new hampshire. five days from now, people are going to vote in the first 2016 presidential primary in the nation. the candidates are not taking this state for grantd with 23 republican delegates at stake. after his loss to ted cruz in iowa, even donald trump is changing his ground game a little. still doing the big rallies and stump speeches but also adding to his campaign schedule, getting up close and personal with voters. today at theo's restaurant in manchester, i sat down with trump who also took questions from people, some of them supporters. some of them undecided. all of them eager to hear specifics of what he plans to do if elected president. we began talking about his support in new hampshire. first of all, congratulations. a couple of great days since iowa. a new cnn poll shows you're doing well in new hampshire. how does it feel? >> feels great.
5:15 pm
the people are great. i've been to new hampshire so many times and have so many friends up here. they amazing people. it's a great place. i just like it. feel comfortable. >> you're doing more in new hampshire. smaller events. you've had four or five already today. evicinients like this with peop close asking you questions. is that's a change in strategy? if so, why? >> i don't think so. i just feel very comfortable up here and love being here. i've just been embraced. i have people that have nice houses and invite me over to dinner and would anyway whether i was doing this or not. there's a great level of comfort for me. >> marco rube yio has jumped to second place. do you think he's more of a threat than ted cruz? >> could be somebody out of the pack. i'm watching your stuff every night and saying, who is going to be moving. i've been doing well. i guess in the polls we do pretty well. i don't know who is second. are you saying that rubio came in second now? >> yes, he did. came in second in this poll.
5:16 pm
>> in iowa, he was third and i was second and they said he did fantastically well and me they were disappointed. i don't know why they were disappointed because i got the most votes in the history of the iowa caucus, for the republicans. and we had a huge turnout. a tremendous -- i must say, i really enjoyed iowa. but this is -- there's a different feeling here. this is an amazing feeling with the people, the crowds. you probably saw the crowd this morning. incredible. >> how important is it for you to win here? >> i'd love to win because i like to win. my life is about winning. >> i've heard that about you. >> you know, your definition of win. when you come in success oecond 11. actually second out of 17, i mean, we consider that good. but, no, i would love to be number one in new hampshire. it would send a great signal and my whole thing is make america
5:17 pm
great again. that's what i want to do. make america great. so many things we can do to take back our country because we're losing our country. we're doing deals that are so ridiculous. the deal with iran. we're handing over $150 billion. we get nothing. it's not like we get. we get nothing. so many horrible things are taking place. if you look at trade with china, we're going to make for them this year $500 billion. we can't do it. we can't afford this. mexico, japan, vietnam, that's another one coming on very strong. they're coming on so strong. vietnam, you don't believe what's going on there. they're taking our jobs, money, our base, everything from us, and it's not going to happen if i get elected president. it's not going to happen. >> you came in second in iowa to ted cruz. let's talk about cruz. you've accused him of fraud. of stealing the election in iowa. you talked about wanting a new
5:18 pm
election there. have you spoken to republican party officials about that? >> i'm into ham. it's one of those things, a lot of strange things. i like ben carson very much. and he got pretty roughed up, frankly, although it affected me maybe more than ben. but i'm so much, because i've been here now for two days, i'm so much into this, into new hampshire that i just don't care about that. >> you think ted cruz intentionally was spreading false information? >> i won't even say. i guess people are looking at it. who cares. he picked up a lot of delegates. we're second. i picked up one less than he did. that's not going to be a factor. but this is the place that i'm focused. >> are you going to be focussing on rubio in speeches? >> i may. i may. i don't think so much. i think the people have to make up their mind. i'm going to do things that nobody else can do because i'm really good at trade. i built an unbelievable company. everybody went down there and looked. my company that i built very
5:19 pm
little debt, tremendous cash flow, some of the greatest assets of the world. i say that not in a braggadocios way. that's the kind of thinking we need. $19 trillion in debt. nobody even knows what trillion means. $19 trillion in debt. now with this horrible deal they just negotiated with the budget two weeks ago, that's going to add another $2 trillion in debt. we need somebody that has this kind of thinking i have. it's really good for what we're talking about. >> one more on ted cruz. he did say that you had a trumpertantrum. had you ever heard that phrase before? >> i haven't actually. i love that phrase. that's great. i love that phrase. >> you can trademark that phrase. >> i like that. i may have to. that's good. i'm going to trademark that before he does. we need a strong tone nowadays. i don't have tantrums. you can't build great businesses and great relationships i have with tantrums. i remember when hillary and jeb
5:20 pm
bush, jeb spent like $100 million and he's nowhere and likes common core and is weak on immigration. where is he coming from? and hillary, the same day, they said donald trump's tone. my tone is tough. and i said they're chopping off middle east.istians in the - all over the middle east. isis. they're doing all sorts of things that haven't happened and it doesn't seem like since medieval times. i used to read medieval times they chopped off heads. i haven't seen that. and then you look at what's happening in this world. how mean, how vicious it's become. and i have these people saying donald trump's tone is tough. the problem we have is everybody is so politically correct that our country is going to hell. so we're going to turn it around and hopefully we're going to do a great job. i know we're going to do a great job. it's so easy. we're going to have the greatest business people. carl icahn endorsed me the other day. all the great business leaders. we're going to lose a lot of companies.
5:21 pm
pfizer is leaving. corporate inversions. they can't get their money back into the country because of stupidity. democrats and republicans, they can't take it back. they're leaving the country. we're losing some of our greatest companies. pfizer is going to ireland. but they're going to europe, asia. i will stop that in two seconds. >> i want to have you meet some of the voters. >> great. >> some are supporters of you. some are undecided. meet brian tilton. he's leaning toward you. >> brian, you have to have dinner with me. >> he's considering another candidate. what's your question? >> hi. since obamacare passed, i've lost my health insurance three times. >> many people have. >> my out-of-pocket expenses are sky high. i'm maxed out this year because i had surgery a couple months ago. and i don't have my doctor anymore because of obamacare. i have heard you say you want to repeal and reobamacare. what are you going to replace it with? >> first of all, i have been so
5:22 pm
against obamacare from the beginning, as you know. repeal and replace. i was totally opposed to it. they did the $5 billion website. $5 billion website that didn't work. i have websites all over the place that cost 15 cents if you have the right person doing them, right? we're going to have great health insurance. we're going to bring the private sector in. i am the only self-funder in this whole race on democrat or republican. the only self-funder, anderson. i'm putting up my own money. it's costing me, not the public, not -- worse than the public, it's the insurance companies are putting up money for all of these people. the oil companies are putting up money. the drug companies are putting up money. and i'll tell you one quick story about that in a second. we're going to take down the borders because i have a lot of -- >> specifically for health care. >> for health care because what happens is the health care companies, the insurance companies are putting up -- they put up tremendous money for obama and other people running for office. they have total control.
5:23 pm
when i bid out my insurance, i have big businesses in many different states. in florida, in new york, all over the place in california. when i bid out my stuff, i don't get any bids. if i want somebody from, let's say, new hampshire bid, a good insurance company bid for my new york business, they can't do it. they just can't do it because we have these artificial, i call them borders. our borders should be so strong, our southern border should be as strong as our borders for -- what that does is it gives monopolies to these insurance companies inside of various states. when you take that down, you will have so much competition. you'll have phenomenal health care, and the reason they have the borders, because the insurance company would rather have a monopoly in one state than have bidders all over the place, even if they could go into -- >> would someone like brian save money on insurance? >> he'd save money and tailor it and get exactly what you want. there are things in health care you're never going to use and they make you buy them.
5:24 pm
premiums have gone up 25%, 35% and 45%. some even over fu50%. people have lost everything because of health care. obamacare is a disaster. and we're going to repeal it and replace it with something great. and we have lots of alternatives. the problem that this country has had, until me, is that the presidents and all of the people that are doing this are all taken care of by the insurance companies. me, i don't care. i'm a free agent. by the way, they would. i will say this. i am self-funded. i don't know that it's appreciated. >> i was going to ask you about that. you don't think you're getting credit for that. >> i put up a tremendous amount of money. i'm spending a lot of money on the campaign and i don't think it's appreciated. the reason obamacare is so bad is because the insurance companies have taken care of the politicians. these politicians are the worst. all talk, no action. i am self-funding my campaign. i'm putting up my money.
5:25 pm
>> you said you'd keep doing that, but it's not worth it. >> i don't think the voters give me any credit for it. when people, even in this room and we have great people in this room, when they go to vote, i don't think they are saying, trump is the only one out of now -- it started off 21, if you add both together. out of 21 people, i'm the only one that's putting up my own money. and it's a lot of money. now i'm an efficient person so i've spent a tiny fraction of what -- >> getting a lot of free media coverage. >> i was supposed to be up to $45 million as of today or tomorrow. i've spent a small fraction of that. that's also good management. that's what we need in the country. i'm number one in the polls. bush is almost down at the bottom. he spent over $100 million and i've spent peanuts. i'm going to spend a lot of money. number one, i don't want to take a chance so we're taking commercials. and number two, i feel guilty not spending a little money. isn't it nice? wouldn't it be nice so if i
5:26 pm
spent about the least money and i'm number one in the polls whereas other people have spent tremendous amounts of money and they're nowhere. wouldn't it be nice if we could do that for our country? >> up next, more on my conversation with donald trump and a group of new hampshire voters. he says he's all about winning. he talks about those things a lot. i asked trump whether he thinks compromise is a dirty word. his answer when we continue. if youthen you'll know howouth, uncomfortable it can be. but did you know that the lack of saliva can also lead to tooth decay and bad breath? well, there is biotene, specially formulated with moisturizers and lubricants. biotene can provide soothing relief and it helps keep your mouth healthy too.

5:28 pm
5:29 pm
5:30 pm
more of my interview with donald trump up close and personal. today he took questions from voters at theo's restaurant in manchester, new hampshire. even made a quip about having dinner with one voter who was leaning toward voting for him but not 100% sure. it was a casual atmosphere in the restaurant but some of the voters' questions tackled the big issues. >> you talk about taking brian to dinner. maybe you'll take him to dinner at timothy's restaurant. he's a restaurant owner and still undecided. >> hi, mr. trump. i own a small restaurant here and interact with young people. it's clear they don't trust
5:31 pm
washington. >> i don't either. >> it's a polarized environment. i feel like a lot of that is because of our most recent two presidents. what tools will you bring to the table to be able to work with people on both sides of the aisle? >> in manhattan, i built a tremendous company. and somebody was mentioning today, i built a city on the west side of manhattan. you know it very well, trump place. it goes from 72nd to 59th street. i had to get zoning. this might sound simple. anderson would understand. people in manhattan -- >> not an easy thing to do. >> i bought the land very inexpensively. people said it was impossible to ever get it done. i got it zoned for 6,000, almost 6,000-unit job with tremendous shopping, with tremendous parking, thousands and thousands ev of spaces. it's been a tremendous success. they did a great job. to get that zoned and taken care of you can negotiate anything. one other thing i say. i just got the old post office
5:32 pm
recently on pennsylvania avenue. i'm building a hotel. every major company in the country wanted that hotel company, and i got that. who did i get it from? the obama administration. if you think about it. i had a great plan, a great balance sheet. i got it from obama. we can solve problems if -- >> politically, though, you are polarizing but you're saying once you get to washington you can get things done? >> i get along with people. ronald reagan and tip o'neil -- >> is compromise a dirty word? >> it's not a dirty word but we have to get a much better part of the compromise. we have people that will never be able to make deals. somebody heard, oh, he'll make deals. i'm going to make good deals. i make billions and billions of dollars -- >> some worry you'll make deals too much, compromise too much on -- >> i make deals. i own some of the greatest assets of the world. people wanted them. >> is it more important to get a
5:33 pm
deal or stand on a principle. >> both. honestly, you have to get the deal done but only if it's right. on the iran deal, i would have never started negotiating that deal unless they let our prisoners go first. i would have gone in and said, you have to let our prisoners go. i would have doubled up the sanctioned. within 24 hours they would have let the prisoners go. then i would have said, listen. we're a busted country. we have no money. we owe $19 trillion. my father always said take the lumps out. >> what does that mean? >> that means make it a little nicer. normally i go and say, we're not giving you the $150 billion. instead i'd say, fellas, we owe $19 trillion. we're a country that has no money. we can't give you the 150. they'll say but we want it. we don't have it. that's called taking the lumps out. okay. they will go crazy. it will break up. two days later, they'll call
5:34 pm
back and we'll make a deal and we keep the $150 billion. i think i have them both. but you know what? what have we done with the 150? they bought 118 airbus planes. they're spending all of their money in europe. giving russia big chunks of money for missiles. why are they allowed to buy missiles? it's so unfair and so incompetent. >> that was just the beginning. donald trump fielded a question from a father who said he wasn't sure he would be a good role model for his daughters if elected president. see how he answered that in a moment.
5:35 pm
we were in a german dance group. i wore lederhosen. so i just started poking around on ancestry. then, i decided to have my dna tested through ancestry dna. it turns out i'm scottish. so, i traded in my lederhosen for a kilt.
5:36 pm

5:39 pm
manzoli from hudson. a few top contenders. still undecided. >> are you liking me better at least? >> sure. only because i get to stand here. thank you so much for being here. i have three wonderful daughters at home. >> good. >> i want nothing more for them than to look at their president as a role model. throughout the course of this campaign, you've said some disparaging comments about women, about people from other countries, other religions and about everybody who has disagreed with you. explain to me how i can look at my daughters and have them look up to a president trump as a role model. >> who asked you to give this question? did anderson? this is cnn -- this is a cnn set-up, but that's okay. >> no. >> nobody has more respect for women -- >> just for the record, we did not tell anybody any questions. >> nobody has more respect for women than i do. 30 years ago, i had a woman building a major, major construction job in new york city, and that never happens. that just didn't happen. i have so many women executives.
5:40 pm
your people actually came over and checked and couldn't believe i have so many women executives. i've been great to women, and women have been great to me. they've done a great job. i do bring up things that are -- things that people don't want to bring up. i talk about immigration stronger than anybody else. i talk about building a wall. if you look at new hampshire, you have a tremendous heroin problem. it's coming from the border. people are driving trucks over the border loaded with cocaine and heroin and all sorts of drugs and taking the money back. we get the drugs. especially in new hampshire, this area for some reason, has a tremendous drug problem. and one of the first questions i get in new hampshire is the drug problem. i'm stopping that. and these politicians can't stop it. they don't know. it's a different deal. they don't know. by the time their lobbyists and all these people are giving them money get to them, even if they know what's right, they'll not do it. i'm going to straighten out
5:41 pm
things. when i brauought up the muslim problem, all of a sudden, the world started going wild and now the world is agreeing with me. we have to do something. there is a serious problem. we don't have to discuss it, and we can be politically correct. let's pretend like our president where he refuses to say radical islamic terrorism. >> is it a radical islamist -- >> maybe it's a muslim problem, maybe it's not. i have many muslim friends. some of them, not all of them, some of them call me and said you've done us a great service. there's tremendous hatred. at least you are starting a dialogue. we have a president that doesn't want to mention the term. >> i want to introduce patricia. she's a trump supporter. >> one of the things i did yesterday was to look up your platform. i'm very excited about a lot of things you say. i love your ideas. we need all these changes, but sometimes when i read them, it's a statement but it's not really saying how are you going to do.
5:42 pm
there's so many things to do. how are you going to do them? how are you going to -- you are in this -- your position and all of a sudden, economics. i've got to worry about isis. >> the president is going to have a lot of things. we have to be high energy. we cannot be a low energy individual and do this job right. we have to be very high energy. it's a great question. i have a lot of policy papers out. in the end, like you have 14 steps. the president wants it more than the people. there are 14 steps. taxes. step one, we'll do this. step two, we'll do this. we have to negotiate. i am specific. step one, we'll go and see these groups. step two. what's going to happen is in step two, three, four, five, the people on the other side in terms of congress, et cetera, they'll be negotiating with us. now all of the 14 steps are just wasted. they may take us to a place where the deal ends up being better. that's what i do.
5:43 pm
i like to be unpredictable. i hate it when i see these people from the administration going on television, including your shows saying exactly what we're going to do in war to knock out isis or whoever we're competing against. we have to be unpredictable. >> we'll have more of the conversation with donald trump ahead. we switch eed gears and got possible. he opened up about the brother he lost to alcoholism and when he met his wife melania. kind ofg equals nitpicking. but i only had a salad. it was a buffalo chicken salad. salad. i'i like to think of myself as more of a control... enthusiast. mmm, a perfect 177-degrees. and that's why this road warrior rents from national. i can bypass the counter and go straight to my car. and i don't have to talk to any humans, unless i want to.
5:44 pm
and i don't. and national lets me choose any car in the aisle. control. it's so, what's the word?... sexy. go national. go like a pro. this just got interesting. why pause to take a pill? or stop to find a bathroom? cialis for daily use is approved to treat both erectile dysfunction and the urinary symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently, day or night. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medicines, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain, or adempas for pulmonary hypertension, as it may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol in excess. side effects may include headache, upset stomach, delayed backache or muscle ache. to avoid long-term injury, get medical help right away for an erection lasting more than four hours. if you have any sudden decrease or loss in hearing or vision, or any symptoms of an allergic reaction, stop taking cialis and get medical help right away. ask your doctor about cialis and a $200 savings card

5:47 pm
we've shown you how donald trump answered questions from diners in new hampshire. they asked him about health care, the economy and gridlock in washington. before we ended the interview, we got more personal. how do you relax? obviously you play golf. how do you decompress. you don't sleep much. >> not too much. i thought -- i'm relaxing now. isn't it a crazy thing? i feel that i'm a worker. i have to work hard. i love to work. if i were president, i would be in the white house a lot. i wouldn't be taking trips all over the place for whatever reason. why would you leave the white house? it's interesting. you're there for a limited
5:48 pm
period of time, okay? you're not going to be there forever. why would you after i would be there so much but i'd be working. i'm a worker. i would be working. when i go on a vacation, i once went on a vacation where they had no phones. i was out of there in one day. we've got to work. we need a working president. >> we both lost our older brothers. you lost your older brother in 1981, i believe. i did in 1988. what impact did that have on your life? >> it had a great impact. >> he was a handsome guy. he was a pilot. a great pilot. very talented. other pilots would come to the house and say he was the most talented. but he got hookod alcohol. i told his family. his legacy is great because what i'm doing, so many people talk about it. he got hooked on alcohol. just hooked. and ultimately it just was devastating. that's why i don't drink. i don't drink.
5:49 pm
i don't smoke cigarettes, i don't take drugs. those are the three good things. i won't tell you the bad things. my brother fred was a great guy. the most handsome guy. he got hooked and there was nothing -- by the way, nothing you could do about it. i've seen strong people, really strong people, but really strong, tough people. they can't shake the habit. the way to shake the habit is not to start. my brother used to say to me, no drinking, no drugs, and no alcohol. actually, he would leave the drugs out. i say to my kids, i've always said no alcohol, no cigarettes, no drugs. with my brother it was a long time ago. the drugs weren't the big thing. he always used to say no alcohol, no cigarettes. it's better if you don't smoke. i have friends who can't quit smoking. i'd never want a cigarette. once you start, i'd probably want a cigarette. i probably wouldn't be here talking to you today if we
5:50 pm
didn't -- if i didn't have my brother fred because he kept me off alcohol. maybe with my personality i'd be a serious alcohol. i've never had a glass of alcohol only because my brother said don't you dare. a tough guy in his own way. don't you dare ever drink. and he passed on to me unbelievable information. >> finally, we've seen your wife on the campaign trail. you talk about strong people. she's a strong woman. when was the moment you knew she was the one for you? >> almost when i saw her. really amazing. she was a very, very successful model. and she's a very smart woman, as you know. she also loves your show, but these are minor details. she loves this show. she likes him. but very smart, strong person. and i was at a party, and i was a single person at a party, and she was standing, and there were three or four supermodels. and i say, forget about them.
5:51 pm
i like that one. who is that one? it was sort of a weird deal. i tried to get her number. she wouldn't give it to me. of course, the smartest thing she ever did. after that happened i was -- she's been amazing. and she's as beautiful inside as she is outside, and if this ever happens, i know one thing, she'll be an unbelievable representative for our country and a great first lady. >> mr. trump, thank you very much. we're going to get some thoughts from our panel. gloria borger, amanda carpenter, and a rubio supporter and syndicated columnist. it's good to see mr. trump in these more personal settings with the voters taking questions more directly. he's doing a lot more of it in new hampshire. >> new hampshire is a different planet from iowa. it's a different ecosystem.
5:52 pm
and i think what the voters of new hampshire demand is what donald trump is trying to give them now because he understands that he needs to go retail. an air war that seemed to be working for him in iowa to a great deeg wouldn't work here in the small towns of new hampshire, here in manchester. and so i think he understands that he has to get personal with voters. and i think just hearing him talk about his brother's alcohol addiction, talk more about his wife. it takes some of the edge off of donald trump. it's not that he doesn't behave with that edge back out on the campaign trail, but i think the voters here in new hampshire want to hear more of that from all of these candidates. >> it was interesting. a man i talked about, some of them still undecided. some of them really like seeing donald trump up close like that. a lot of them also said, or a number of them said he didn't give more specifics. i still want to hear more
5:53 pm
specifics on what's he going to replace obamacare with. things like that. when candidate do a lot of these town halls they have to end up getting into the details. >> whouts a doubt this was a kinder, softer donald trump. and it seems like the conclusion he's taken away from iowa is the negative campaigning didn't work. the two biggest things, he declined to pursue the allegations against ted cruz and declined to attack marco rubio, which is remarkable. that said, even though he has a ki kinder, gentler approach in new hampshire, they expect details. the cnn poll showed nearly one-third of them are undecided. and just unveiling a new personality for however long it lafts isn't going to be enough to sway over those voters. they don't want to just hear the life story that everyone kind of already knows about it. >> at this point for trump, considering he has the lead here, do you think it's more about not rocking the boat and
5:54 pm
trying to get across the finish line tuesday? up until now he always tends to go for the big headline. that's what's a lot of his supporters have liked about him. >> for the last six hours, he's not been going for the big headline? i wouldn't expect that to continue but the questions from the people in the diner were impressive. you did a great job, of course, but that's your job. the actual people who stood up, like for example, the woman who said she was a trump supporter, but she said i looked at your website and i have looked for specifics about what you would replace obamacare with, and i found it was a little vague. and his answer was quite vague. he gave another one of his sort of a.d.d. answers where he was sort of everywhere all over the map and he brings in isis and he brings in immigration and the border and it's all so scatter shot that it was really his
5:55 pm
answer was as much proof of what that questioner was wondering about as anything else. didn't reassure her, it seemed. rather, it confirmed what she was suspecting. >> well, i think, to mona's point, that's one of the interesting things about these town hall formats. it's less aggressive an encounter than a traditional one on one interview because you're really wanting to show a more personal side, trying to get a different side. but it does really reveal just in the answers whether or not the person can get into specifics. >> that's why people come out of new hampshire better candidates, better presidential candidates. >> because new hampshire audiences are incredibly well informed and incredibly specific. >> they understand the kind of access they have that nobody else has. so they demand a certain amount of accountability. and i think what mona is talking about is what donald trump has to get better at because these questions if he continues to do these kind of formats, and i see
5:56 pm
he's added an event tomorrow. if he continues to do more of this retail politics, he is going to have to sharpen his answers because they'll go right from a trump event to a cruz event. and cruz, for example is very polished. does have detailed answers as does rubio and most of the rest of these candidates. >> thanks to everyone. we'll get more of your thoughts on that trump interview in the next half hour. a lot of other campaign events going to in new hampshire including a town hall with jeb bush. he brought a not so secret weapon, his 90-year-old mother barbara bush. americans...

welcome. we're live in manchester, new hampshire, five days from the first primary of this election. a new cnn/wmur tracking poll shows trump in the lead among likely voters in new hampshire. even adding extra events, including a discussion with me at a restaurant where voters got a chance to directly ask him questions. that was more of an intimate setting. he's also doing the big events here, including a speech that's was more bleep worthy than some of the others. >> we're going to start winning. we're going to win on trade with these are the countries that's are ripping us off. we're going to win on health care. we're going to win with
