his skills by tearing into clinton's record in a speech this morning. we have the 2016 race covered the way only cnn can. let's begin with sara murray. >> good morning, chris. it's no doubt trump has had a rough couple of weeks. he fired his campaign manager seemlying out of nowhere. he's been struggling in the money race, but today he's hoping to move out of all of that and turn up the heat on hillary clinton. >> so many of the things she said were outright lies. >> donald trump is aiming to put hillary clinton on defense. >> she's crooked hillary. let's face it. she's crooked hillary, she always has been, and nothing's going to change. >> the presumptive gop nominee preparing to deliver a speech in new york city today, targeting everything from immigration to clinton's e-mail scandal and even accusing the former first couple of improper dealings when clinton was secretary of state. >> her record is a disaster. in addition to taking in ten and tens of millions of dollars from people for lots of different things in lots of different ways and countries that should not be
3:01 am
giving her money or her husband money. >> reporter: on tuesday, he fired off preliminary shots, even questioning clinton's faith at a gathering of religious leader. >> she's been in the public eye for years and years. and yet, there's no -- there's nothing out there. >> reporter: trump's focus on clinton, coming as he tries to pivot from days of staff shake s and dismal fund-raising. trump ended last month with $1.3 million in the bank, compared to clinton's $42 million. but the real estate mogul argues her dollars come with a price. >> all of the money she's raising, that's blood money. that's blood money. >> reporter: the billionaire businessman still dangling the idea of self-funding in the general. >> i'll be honest, you know, i've never raised money before for this, because i've never done it before. i think i would be very good at it. as far as i'm concerned, i would be very happy to continue to self-fund. >> reporter: even though he spent tuesday evening looking to shore up his campaign coffers at a new york city fund-raiser. >> how you feeling about the campaign? >> as trump and his top gop a y
3:02 am
allies put on a happy face, and downplay concerns about the candidates' campaign war chest, going into a head-to-head battle against clinton. >> now, trump continues to face reservations from members of his own party about his ability to go head-to-head against hillary clinton in the general. and a number of them say, look, the fastest way to unify republicans is to get everyone onboard against hillary clinton. today will be a better test for trump of just how well he can prosecute that case against clinton. chris? >> well, this is the first time he's facing somebody who actively goes at him. that's what we're seeing with hillary clinton. first it was, no finger on the button. now it's, no hands on the economy. clinton blasting donald trump as the problem when it comes to business. a string of failed enterprises and flimsy ideas for what to do as president. she says that would make him a danger to the economy. she also slammed him for hypocritely criticizing american companies for taking jobs overseas, while some of his own products are outsourced. cnn's chris frates live in washington with more.
3:03 am
chris? >> reporter: hey, good morning, chris. well, hillary clinton used donald trump's business record against him yesterday, painting the billionaire as more bankrupt deadbeat than business genius, who would be a danger to the world's economy as president. and it fit into her larger message, that trump is unfit to hold the highest office. the nation's highest office. >> he's written a lot of books about business. they all seem to end at chapter 11. >> reporter: in the battleground state of ohio, hillary clinton hit donald trump writ hurts. his business record. >> trump ties are made in china. trump suits in mexico. trump furniture in turkey and i would love for him to explain how all that fits with his talk about america first. >> reporter: trump responded directly to the charge. >> it's true. and you know why? because they devalue their currencies and they make it impossible for companies to compete. unfortunately, my ties are made
3:04 am
in china. >> reporter: clinton is also calling out the four bankruptcies trump filed for casinos he once owned in atlantic city. >> we can't let him bankrupt america like we are one of his failed casinos. >> reporter: and branding trump as dangerous to the economy. >> trump would take us back to where we were before the crisis. he'd rig the economy for wall street again. well, that will not happen on my watch. i can guarantee you. >> reporter: trump responded to the attacks in realtime, live tweeting as the hits kept coming. how can hillary clinton run the economy when she can't even send e-mails without putting entire nations at risk. and, i am the king of debt. that has been great for me as a businessman. trump even posting this video response on instagram, as clinton continued unloading. >> hillary clinton's only right about one thing. i understand debt and how to handle it. i've made a fortune with debt. but debt for this country is a
3:05 am
disaster. and obama has piled it on and she's been there watching. >> reporter: the latest cnn/orc poll shows voters believe trump would be better at handling the economy than clinton, a perception she's hoping to turn around. >> he has no real strategy for creating jobs, just a string of empty processes, but then maybe we shouldn't expect better from someone who's most famous words are "you're fired." >> today, clinton will continue to talk about the economy, but instead of trashing trump, she'll lay out her version, detailing plans to make college debt free, expand social security, and raise taxes on the super rich. and a little later this morning, she'll meet with house democrats on capitol hill, as she continues to try to put a tough primary battle behind her and unite her party. alisyn, chris, back to you guys. >> thanks so much, chris. okay, sara, stick around, if you would. because we want to discuss the economic battle between trump and clinton with cnn politics
3:06 am
executive editor mark preston and washington bureau chief for the daily beast, jackie kucinich. great to have all of you. so hillary clinton was basing some of her attacks on donald trump's economic policies on moody's analytics, the well-regarded economic research group. this is what they found in their research, what they concluded was, if donald trump's economic policies went into effect, there would be 3.5 million fewer jobs. unemployment would go up to 7%. the average household income would stagnate, stock prices and house values would drop. mark, is it a problem that the lead author of this, mark standee, contributes to hillary clinton's campaign? >> it certainly gives the trump campaign somepushback to say, mark zandi favors hillary clinton and her positions. >> and he didn't disclose it in this analysis. >> right. but if you talk to the folks in that world, they'll tell you that he is one of the best.
3:07 am
he knows exactly what he's doing. he did help john mccain back in 2008. and that this is just a smoke screen by the trump campaign to try to knock down his critical analysis. >> but, you can say the same thing about economic analyses, right? what's the old joke from the president? give me an economist with one hand, because they always say on the other hand, you'll find ten people to say this plan is great and that clinton's plan is a problem. how heavy does this land? >> i think it depends on who those people are who say it's great. and those people who say it's great don't have the credentials of -- >> who donated to clinton? don't you think it's a little bit -- >> he should have disclosed it. that is absolutely right. but it still doesn't, and it does -- as mark say, give the trump campaign cover. however, if they basically predicted this back to the future ii, the whole biff scene in this, when you actually read it, it also says that there's no specifics. so, this actually could change. they say that in some ways, they can't even make a full
3:08 am
prediction, because trump has been light on the specifics. >> but hasn't he said he's going to lower the corporate tax rate to something like 15%. he's going to increase tariffs on foreign countries, lower the personal tax rate. >> he has given a little bit of sort of meat on the bones, particularly on tax policy. i think when people look at these trade policies, this is where you're seeing a lot of this economic impact. and we have seen other economists say a similar thing to mark zandi. and i will reiterate what mark preston said, is that politicians on both sides of the aisle have pointed to his numbers in the past. but what's remarkable, a week ago, you wouldn't have seen anything from the trump campaign saying anything about mark zandi. for the first time, they're able to put out some kind of rapid response and say, here's why you shouldn't trust this economic analysis. and whether you walk away from that saying, i feel a little bit weird trusting this because he gave to clinton, or whether you say, i still trust this analysis, at least the trump campaign was still able to put something out there to refute it. and that's something their campaign was not capable of doing -- >> they're just missing a nickname. he should come up with something like zanny zandi or sting like
3:09 am
that. >> maybe give it a couple of days. >> is this a little bit of a missed opportunity for clinton, in as much as trade is a real basis for policy debate. there are two different directions this country can go. it's made a set of decisions that leads it down, having open markets and doing that. that's what the country supposedly believes in. and clinton could debate it on that basis. but she didn't do it yesterday. she used it as a hammer. >> and she did it in a state that they both need to win ohio. a state that's been, you know, in some ways, wrecked by trade policies that have been enacted over the past 20 plus years. but here's the thing, though. if you look at the cnn/orc poll that was released yesterday, on the issue of trade, she actually does better than donald trump on that shall, which is kind of amazing, because bernie sanders really clubbed her over the head all during the democratic primary on the issue and donald trump continues to do so, but yet she's still coming out front, which might say something that even though when you talk about the economy as a whole, because he's done a very good job of framing the debate on the
3:10 am
economy, that he would be a better leader. on this one -- >> i'm going to say it, you kind of ignore it and then you point it out and say, it's the best idea of the morning. >> brilliant. >> how you said it. >> yes, exactly. so let's talk about what she's going after trump for. that is the bankruptcies of his casinos. let's listen to what hillary clinton said about this yesterday. >> he says he's a businessman, and this is what businessmen do. well, cnn pointed out that no major company has filed chapter 11 more often in the last 30 years than trump's casinos. so, this is not normal behavior. >> before you respond, it's probably fair to let donald trump respond to that. so here's what he told david demuir. >> what i've done is i've used brilliantly the laws of the country. and not personally, just corporate. and if you look at people like
3:11 am
myself that are at the highest levels of business, many of them have done it many, many times. >> but do many average americans pay the price for that? >> but i'm running a business, you have to understand, i'm running a business for myself, for my employs, for my family. hillary wouldn't have any idea how to do that. somebody has to understand debt. she doesn't understand debt. >> so does this resonate with voters? >> this is the obama 2012 playbook against mitt romney in a lot of ways. they took him from a successful businessman to a vulture capitalist over the course of the election. so that's what she's trying to do. she's trying to define him on this bankruptcy, on these bankruptcies, before he can do it himself, with the broader electorate. of course, he pushed back during the debates. you can see him pushing back there. but that's why he's going so hard. he's using his experience as a businessman as an asset to his entire campaign. and if they can put a chink in that armor, that's going to be really bad for trump >> and there are some similarities here. you remember that one of the wig regrets for mitt romney's
3:12 am
campaign is that the obama campaign was up on the air hammering on these issues for months when he didn't have the money to respond to it on the airwaves. and we're seeing a similar kind of activity play out right now, where hillary clinton is spending tens of millions of dollars on the airwaves, running ads against donald trump and her super pac is doing the same, the super pac who supports her. and trump isn't on the air. he has no response to that. this is a different media environment. trump has proven to be very deputy at getting free media. so we'll see how that all shakes out. there's no doubt it's a different landscape than it was four years ago, but that's one of the things that's really unsettling to republicans, is sort of wondering if this is just act ii of the nightmare they watched in 2012. >> another thing we heard from trump yesterday was a kind of out of in where question about clinton's faith. we don't really know anything, we don't really know anything. then he had a couple of surrogates come out and say, well, he means it in terms of parsing her positions. what do you think the plus/minus is on this strategy? >> the plus for him yesterday in that moment was to try to get the social conservatives and the evangelical community to rally around him. and what happened yesterday is we saw these quote/unquote
3:13 am
evangelical leaders come here to new york to talk to donald trump to see if they can walk out of that meeting and feel like they could support him. you know, when we talk about this election, we really should just talk about it in two ways. one is, donald trump really needs to get the base behind him. that is the evangelical leaders. by him calling into question hillary clinton's faith, he's talking to them, he's feeding them red meat. at the same time, the minus is that he is, perhaps, alienating the middle when he really talks up faith and attacks someone's faith. >> whether or not people believe that hillary is a secret methodist is what he -- is what -- >> at the same time, she's -- her ability to come out and say, here's my preacher from when i was a kid, i've been a methodist my whole life, here's what i've done and said about it, here's why. can he match those kind of descriptions of his own faith. the biggest thing he's said so far is that he thinks he gets audited by the irs because he's such a strong christian. >> all right, panel, stick
3:14 am
around. stay tuned for tonight for a town hall for a libertarian town hall, a conversation on the issues and the race that's at 9:00 p.m. eastern on cnn. trump has been taking some hits, but she's shrhe's shruggi off, especially when it comes to money. hillary clinton has a huge war chest, certainly outspending him in the battleground states. trump says he can self-fund and match anytime he wants. we're going to discuss the reality of the money race and why it matters, next. ♪ [tires screeching] ♪ experience the thrill of the lexus performance line. because the ultimate expression of power,

3:18 am
even if it's just for a night. all of the money she's raising, that's blood money. that's blood money. she couldn't take care of wall street. she's getting tremendous amounts of money from lots of people. she's going to take care of all those people. >> if it sounds like what you're hearing is an unrelenting stream of negatives from both candidates, you're right and you'll get more of it today. trump is going to give a speech to respond to what clinton did yesterday, because what she did was put him in a little bit of an unfamiliar position, where his business, she saw as a liability. he's going to talk money today,
3:19 am
why he has it, and why any speculation in the race that he doesn't is bunk. sara, the theory of the case is a simple one. look at the numbers, she's got 40-something here, he has a million here. he says, i can self-fund wherever i want and i haven't tried to raise money. how do you see it. >> i think this is a different landscape. there are for few people who say that donald trump needs to raise the same amount that hillary clinton needs to raise. having $1.3 million in the bank is not a stable cash position. that means you cannot run ads in basically any battleground state. and so far, we haven't seen donald trump come to the rescue and write a $10 million check. he's loaning his campaign money. he's not giving his campaign money. and at this point, he's not even loaning that much. now, there are a number of republicans and skeptical democrats who be out there saying, we don't even know if donald trump is liquid enough to give his campaign the kind of money you need to really fight a war in the general election. but the bottom line is, whether he's going to raise it, whether he's going to loan it or donate
3:20 am
it, he hasn't done any of those things in any big way yet. >> mark, we just had a graphic up of how his cash on hand compares to some of his competitors in this race. let's look at that. so he has 1.3 and you can see, you know, bernie sanders, ted cruz, even ben carson had more than that. but look at his cash on hand compared to previous gop candidates, nominees. john mccain and mitt romney. but isn't this a big "so what"? they lost. so obviously cash does not equal votes. >> dollars does equal votes, and here's why. especially at this time in the campaign. this is all about framing and defining. most of america will focus on this election after labor day and that's when they'll be all into it. but the idea that he has $1.3 million, hillary clinton right now is trying to define him as best she can. now, he does have an advantage, because he's very tv ready. he understands how to manipulate the media. but having said that, he doesn't have staff in the states. and the clinton campaign right now is better prepared to frame this election and to try to put
3:21 am
doubt in the voters' minds. >> but that doesn't have anything to do with money. >> what's that? >> everything you're talking about is sort of strategy, not money. if he -- >> well, money pays -- >> it pays for the ads. >> and you're talking about staff everything and. so you think it is a very big deal that that's the number -- >> it's huge. because right now, we might not see it now in the cnn/orc poll, which is five points or what have you. but what it does do, is this will play out over the next couple of months and we'll look back at this time and say, that's why that's a big -- >> sara was saying that earlier, she's trying to define him, he's not able to be on the airwaves rebutting the presumptions she's putting out about him. he says, i'll make it up -- >> well, he is on tv. >> well, here, but not on paid time, commercials. he's making two different points, saying, one, i've got the money and you'll see it when i want you to see it. i don't need it right frnow because i'm on top. and two, why do you reward
3:22 am
clinton for dirty money. one of his guys are going to come on and say, their top list of donors are all banks and law firm and time warner, which they'll bring out every time they get. >> it's all fun and games when you have money and no one's donating to you to criticize a candidate that has donors. because these bank, if they're trying to give him no, he's not going to say no. >> but right now he can say no, i have not taken their money yet. >> right now he can, but if he wants to -- where does he think the money's going to come from? these republican donors, there's a chilling effect. they're looking at this guy and don't think he can win. why would you make that investment if you're a successful businessman? donald trump wouldn't make that investment. >> well, last night he talked about whether he would self-fund going forward. listen to this. >> as far as i'm concerned, i would be very happy to continue to self-fund. >> are you going to continue to self-fund? >> i may. i may. >> how much? >> i can do whatever i want.
3:23 am
she's going to spend $1.2 billion on an election. and i'm trying to say, where do you spend that money? remember this, i spent $50 million and i won. other people that were running against me spent many times that amount and they lost. not even close. >> will you spend another $50 million in the general or more? >> i might, i might. i really might decide to do that. >> so, sara, he says -- he started by saying he's happy to self-fund. why doesn't he just do that? >> that was a great question. he was self-funding during the primaries and clearly made this shift to the general election. part of the reason the nominee partners with the rnc, partners of all these state parties, then you can raise money in bigger buckets. you're able to do something that can help down-ballot races. you can lay a foundation that will help you and also candidates lower on the ballot. that was the idea of partnering with the rnc and saying, i'm doing this to help the party. i'm the nominee, everyone rally behind me. but he hasn't seen the sort of embrace from the republican party that he's been hoping for, and he certainly hasn't seen that kind of embrace from donors. but the other thing is, donald trump just doesn't like fund-raising that much. he doesn't like going to the
3:24 am
events that much. he doesn't like scheduling the events that much. >> welcome to politics. and he's gotten some polish on him say welcome i don't need the big names. they don't want to back me, that's fine. they're part of the problem. the problem with that problem, you don't get their staffs, their lists, their network. and that winds up leading to dollars and boots on the ground. >> right. unconventional candidate, unconventional campaign, but convention is what actually wins, specifically in a general election. and he can talk all about, to his credit, all his votes. we're not talking about 9 million people. we're talking about 60 million people. it's a different world at this point. $1.3 million doesn't even fund a congressional campaign at this point. >> so, he did self-fund, leading up to this point. but did he lose money? it sounds like he paid some of his company and staff and family members with some of that self-funding. it sounded like it was sort of a rearranging of the dough. >> well, this is another place that it's been really interesting, and specifically,
3:25 am
in this campaign. because, usually, candidates stay away from something like this. so there isn't -- so if they have the ability to toast things in places they own, they stay away from it, they stay away it, because it becomes a legality. are you underpaying for that value? because that's an in kind donation to the campaign, and that could be illegal. or if you're overvaluing it, then you're making money. he's treading into some really shady legal territory as well. >> hmm. okay, panel, thank you very much. great to have all of you here. >> the money, the nastiness, the lack of plans for the future. all of this is feeding the perception that, boy, i wish i had another choice. how many of you are saying that to us on social media and else with. well, there is a libertarian, the groon party. so tonight we'll give you a town hall introducing you to the libertarian party. you have william well from new mexico and massachusetts. you'll learn about them and what makes them different from the republican and the democrat. that's at 9:00 p.m. eastern, only on cnn. another hit for the rio olympics. one of the world's top golfers

north korea testifiering two ballistic missiles over the sea of japan. the first considered a failure, but the second missile traveled almost 250 miles, and that caught the attention of the pentagon. we have cnn international correspondent, paul hancocks live in seoul with more. what do we know, paul? >> well, chris, this is certainly what everyone's looking at in this region. that second launch. the fact it went 250 miles, the fact its altitude, according to the japanese military, hit over 600 miles, many experts are looking at it very closely say welcome does this mean that north korea is making progress? this was the concern that with all the failures and the intense testing, kim jong-un has been looking over in recent months, since april, there's been six of these missile tests. they are learning something with every single test. now, there has been reaction from around the world, from the state department, we've seen a spokesperson, john kirby, saying
3:31 am
that washington strongly condemns what they are doing. saying that they're going to go back to the u.n. and complain about this. but also, this will actually strengthen the resolve of the international community to rally around and make sure that the sanctions against north korea really are making a difference. here in seoul, in south korea, they're even thinking of additional sanctions against north korea. alisyn? >> paula, thank you very much for that reporting. here's a crazy story to tell you about. three people arrested with a truck full of weapons at new york's holland tunnel, reportedly telling police, they were on a rescue mission. there's the truck they were arrested in. we'll show that again in a minute. here's the cache of weapons. police stopped their pickup truck tuesday, finding several loaded guns, body armor, thousands of rounds of ammunition. here's the truck they were driving in. >> that's a gun range truck. >> well, it wasn't flying under the radar, exactly, painted that way. but the leader of this treo that was arrested was a gun range owner and claimed they were rushing to rescue a teenage girl

held hostage in a drug den in new york city. police say they found that teenager who says she is not being held. >> yeah, it is a bizarre situation. our "new day" prediction is this, movie! a movie is going to come out of that story. >> based on the truck alone -- >> that was advertising for the gun range, not the best choice for this type of sinister move. all right, now, this is a serious story. golfer rory mcilroy, he just added his name to the list of athletes skipping the summer olympics in rio? why? concern over the zika virus, of course. so, he's not going to represent ireland. there are two other top pro golfers who have already pulled out. now, this is a complicated story, because not only is it about the virus, but this is the first time that golf has been in the games since 1904. now, arguably one of the two or three biggest names is out. >> he says it's a risk he's not willing to take, have been though it is considered a low risk, as we've discussed, especially for a man, not a pregnant woman. but still, just spells trouble for these games. >> it would be very -- first of all, if you get it, you're sick,

scope out security, to see how the security was laid out in the club, casing out the club before then coming back. we're also hearing from investigators that the wife of the shooter has told them that he was agitated the night before the shooting, that he was very, very angry, and left their home in port st. lucy two hours away in a very disturbed mood, carrying bags. later, we clearly found out those bags were full of firearms. she says that she didn't know exactly what he was planning, but that she tried to stop him. yesterday, attorney general loretta lynch was here in orlando and answered questions from reporters about whether or not the wife may be facing charges. she really dodged those questions. here's what she said. >> we're not going to speak about anyone else's role in this right now, while we are investigating the matter. because we're not going to be able to provide that conclusion at this point in time. as i said, we are trying to learn everything we can about mateen and all the people in his ambit. >> reporter: clearly, still a
3:39 am
lot of investigating to be done. one other interesting note here, alisyn, investigators tell us that before the shooting, the gunman actually bought tickets to go from west palm beach to san francisco with his family. we don't know the significance of that, but clearly it's something worth noting and worth exploring deeper. >> that is noteworthy, boris. we'll explore everything you've just talked about. we want to bring in our cnn counterterrorism analyst and cia counterterrorism official, phil mudd, and evan perez, justice official. let's start with the theory he was scoping out the club hours before he did the massacre. what do you think? >> i would be careful about the theory. it seems perfectly logical, but there's a couple of things you've got to think about in this case. first, we're going to try to make what he was doing rational. we're going to look at it through our lens and say, what would i have done, what was he thinking about? and we'll make assumptions. i wouldn't assume he knew in two hours advance that he had the courage to do this.
3:40 am
i could see a scenario that he walked in, got nervous, tried the o -- that he was trying to pump himself up for the operation. secondly, we heard about buying a ticket next day for san francisco. i would not assume, that he thought, irrationally, that he could get out of the club and fly to san francisco. i doubt it, but let's not assume a sense of rationality on a man that murdered 49 people. >> so you don't see the idea that he bought these three plane tickets for his family as either a suggestion that he wasn't going to do the attack or that he would survive. >> i would stay open-minded in cases like this. >> evan, what are investigators telling you about all this new information in terms of scoping out the club and everything else. >> i think phil hit it on the head here. the issue for us is to try to ascertain where he was and why he was there. we know earlier in the evening, he also dropped by disney springs, an entertainment complex. it was a crowded place and had families, and it was also gay days, which is a celebration by the lbgt community until orlando. we're not sure whether maybe he considered other places to
3:41 am
attack that evening and finally arrived at 2:00 a.m. to carry this out. >> phil, do you think the wife is in trouble? >> i do think she is. you might ask the question,wear now a week and a half out from the investigation. why not just go ahead and charge her? >> weeknighhy not? >> there is no rush for a prosecutor to run to a court in a complex case and say, we're going to charge her. they can wait. and they're not just talking about a potential, or i suspect, thinking about a potential charge of whether she was a co-conspirator. one of the things they've got to think about is a classic federal problem when you're involved in investigation. did she lie to them after the fact? so they're going to do a lot of investigation to determine exactly what she said, the day after, two days after, three days after. and there's really no rush here, since the event is already over and 49 people are dead. i think she's in trouble. >> evan, you know, we had heard some reports that she has some sort of limited mental capacity. are investigators talking about
3:42 am
that at all? >> you know, i don't really think that's relevant. i think the reports are talking about some teachers backing her school days, who said that she had some kind of learning disability. i think that really doesn't matter unless there is some proof that she had some kind of cognitive disability. whether there was some reason why when her husband walk out the door with guns in a bag, which she knows are in there, and she knows he's very angry, she knows he's agitated, why she doesn't decide that that is reason to call someone. maybe even the father or maybe call the authorities, because she said that she was very fearful. she called him all night, texted him, called him and, you know, never once picked up the phone to call the authorities. that's the crux of what the justice department and what the fbi is looking at. you know, because, you know, reasonable people might say, this is the reason should call the authorities. >> yes. and in fact, other people did call the authorities on this guy. there was a muslim man in the community who knew this gunman well. and he saw signs and he called
3:43 am
the fbi. listen to what he told cnn yesterday. >> omar mateen brought the name arwar maliki. my reaction was, what did you think about the videos, and he thought they were powerful. both of those raised a red flag and prompted me to speak with the fbi. he had gotten married for a second time and had a son and was starting a family. i didn't think that he fit the profile. >> this man didn't want to come farm to tell his story publicly, but in part he did because he thinks that he wanted to put the lie to the idea that you hear so often, the muslim community needs to speak out about these people in their midsts. they're not doing enough. i mean, he and others did come forward. >> let me tell you something, there are glimmers of hope in every tragedy. this man is a glimmer of hope, for one reason from a counterterrorism perspective. not only does he represent what americans ask of communities, whether it's a drug community or islamic extremism, come forward
3:44 am
to the feds, but it represents a fundamental change in the counterterrorism world. at 9/11, the feds have to look at al qaeda and determine they're sending people into america. isis is not sending people into america. it's a kid and a community who sel self-radicalizes. in this new world, we need people like this to come forward because the feds can't find him. >> and it is a beacon of light and it's great he came forward and told his story. >> phil, evan, thank you very much. let's get over to chris. so the countdown to whether or not britain will exit the european union. they call it the brexit vote. and a closer look on why it matters to you, next. hello! nice to meet you! today we're going to talk about the all-new 2016 chevy cruze, but here's the catch. you're only going to answer me in emojis. so, this cruze has built-in 4g lte wifi® with 24 gigs of data. wow.

3:49 am
which way this is going to go, and that matters to him. his expectation is he won't keep his job as the leader of the country in the event of a brexit vote. world markets are watching, because they expect something of a shot in the event of a brexit vote. europe, its leaders are worried that both britain and the european union will be weaker in the event of a brexit vote, and america wants its special friend, britain, to continue its influence within the european union. so all of this is at stake, as well as the general direction of this country for decades to come. in the final day and through the final debate last night, we heard both sides sticking to their core arguments. those advocating for leave say this is about taking back control of immigration, trade, the economy, the ability to make laws for them. it's about sovereignty. for those who want the country to stay with the european union, they say britain will be better off, safer, and more secure. more influential on the world stage, with the european union. so, here we are, the final stage, too close to call. and there is a sense here that
3:50 am
regardless of which way this goes tomorrow, the divisions that have been exposed and reinforced over the course of this long, often ugly campaign, well, they will not be easily healed. chris, over to you. >> we keep hearing the die has been cast, if not of this moment, in moments to come, to be certain, if britain leaves, as phil black is suggesting, it could go either way. it's going to have big reverberations for the markets back here at home and we'll stay on this story. we're also just weeks from the first political convention kicking off. who will you see next to trump and next to clinton as their running mates? are you going to know before the conventions? well, we have some indication of what might be on the short list coming up here when it comes to vp. we're going to discuss that, next. make your guesses online. alisyn camerota with the why. when consultant josh atkins books at laquinta.com.

3:54 am
25 days until the start of the republican national convention. we will find ourselves situated in cleveland. who is donald trump going to pick as a vp? who is hillary clinton going to pick as a vp? who should they pick? a new cnn poll tells us where americans' heads and minds are on this. let's discuss. cnn political analyst and editor in chief to have daily beast, john avalon. and cnn political commentator and former white house staffer for president george w. bush, margaret hoover. all right. let's start, mr. avalon, good morning to both of you, with trump. what do you see in this poll
3:55 am
that is interesting, the headline is, they seem to like a military mate for him. >> and vp picks now are increasingly about balancing the profit of the person at the top of the ticket. so, look, it would be crazy for donald trump to pick a businessman. he's got that covered. what's interesting, they want to go for military guys as opposed to someone in politics, which is what donald trump has said he's going to look for. i think the reason for that, it's really the tough guy coalition that folks are looking for particularly on the republican side. you get double down on the outsider, no nonsense, executive ability or perceptions thereof. so i think that explains why the republican primary voters want to see him pick a -- >> okay, give me some names, margaret. >> a military guy. >> you don't have to go with that. just who should he pick. >> it would round out his experience, but there's also geographic. is there a geographic or democratic advantage to someone as well? the challenge with trump, you have a university of people pie in the sky that would round out his profile geographically and demographically get more people to the party, potentially. but none of those people want to
3:56 am
actually be his vp. pie in the sky, condoleezza rice, nikki haley. you have minority republican women. >> susanna martinez wouldn't even go to his rallies. who says that condoleezza rice resonates as a candidate and brings in everybody. >> she was on the short list as mitt romney, is always talked about as a perennial pie in the sky, nobody would refute her likability or credentials she would bring to the ticket. the universe of actual people who want the job are people who actually accentuate trump's strengths and weaknesses, they don't round them out. in other words, newt gingrich, chris christie. for all the people that love trump, they love the characteristics that newt and christie bring to the ticket. strength, you know, some sort of credibility on the far right. >> christie got crushed in this poll. >> but what they -- >> christie's plus/minus in this poll is not good. he's way underwater. >> but what none of them do is actually round out his entire
3:57 am
platability, i think. some of them -- newt certainly brings washington politics know-how, but that's a downside for people, too. people don't want the insider. bob corker bring foreign policy experience, which trump desperately needs. >> he's also an elegant, decent man. >> but he's a white man from tennessee. >> that's not going to trouble donald. >> it's not going to round out the ticket in a way that makes it more palatable. >> john is just throwing in quick -- he's not actually offering anything. he's just throwing in punch lines to all your -- >> this is the upside to marriage. she listens to him and ignores him all the time. but with patience and agreement. >> no military names, no big names popped up? >> what donald trump has said himself, he doesn't need a military man, because he knows what he needs to know about foreign policy. >> christie probably makes the most sense if you're looking for someone who's dogged, loyal, can play attack. >> but the reason the foreign policy is on there is because of orlando. in the wake of a terrorist attack, in the wake of -- this is a republican voters want
3:58 am
somebody who knows how to handle national security. >> short list for hillary clinton, john? >> this poll was fascinating, because it showed, first of all, if hillary clinton were to pick a woman, ala elizabeth warren, it would have a net negative for her. it's about balancing the profile. already you've got an historic first woman at the top of the ticket. doubling down on that starts to seem like identity politics. >> she is being vetted, we hear. >> we hear that, and in the sleeting process, there are always political calculations for the people you float on the list, right. meanwhile, back in reality, i think hillary clinton would be crazy not to pick tim kaine. the senator from vig, former governor, former head of the dnc, enormously liked and respected by his colleagues in the senate. speaks fluent spanish. therefore better than ted cruz and the castro brothers. and somebody who has won in a swing state and can broaden her appeal just a bit. and it would be a liaison to congress. yes, he is, you know, center left. but he is not as, you know, far to the center as, say, a margaret warner. i think tim kaine would be a
3:59 am
great pick. >> tim kaine certainly would be a tick that would be palatable for a centrist, for women. but the problem with tim kaine is he does nothing for hillary clinton to shore up her left. >> who cares. >> and the problem for hillary clinton -- >> you don't care, but the problem for hillary clinton is if she's going to beat donald trump, she needs to run up the numbers for all these demographic groups. >> who does it? >> sherrod brown is the only one of the top three that actually represents them. and what about all these millennials? these millennials don't like hillary clinton. they like bernie sanders. if bernie sanders -- >> do they vote? >> they vote if they get a blessing. otherwise they stay home. >> no -- >> chris has actually nailed -- >> you know what, you are in la la land. >> two cars home! >> none of the -- they will stay home. >> can i just -- >> for one second. for one second. sherrod brown makes sense to the extent that hillary clinton is going to have a harder time than people expect in ohio and pennsylvania. yesterday's poll shows that
4:00 am
donald trump is doing very well in those two states. i could make a case there. but the idea that a republican governor koud pick as a replacement. >> that's a good plan. >> thank you, sonny and cher! >> whoa, hey now, sonny and cher. >> clever jokes. >> they fail. let's move on. >> a rock star, let's go. i'm the actress, right? >> have a nice home on the subway, john. she'll be taking the car. so what do you think about this? any of these names resonate you? anything you like or don't like about this? post your comment on facebook.com/new day. or you can tweet us, alisyn camerota with a "y." >> i read them all. we're following a lot of news. hillary clinton and donald trump on the attack. let's get to it. >> the united states of america doesn't do business trump's way. >> if you really look at her record, her record is a disaster. >> everything seems to be a game for him. well, it isn't for a lot of us. >> i would be happy to self-fund. >> he's written a lot of books
4:01 am
about business. they all seem to end at chapter 11. >> the wife of this gunman watched as he left angry and armed with a bag full of guns. >> we are trying to learn everything we can leading up to this attack. >> what are we going to wait for? a third time? a fourth time? >> you have republicans running around saying "radical islam" to anybody who will listen. but they don't do anything about it. congressman steve king tries to keep harriet tubman off the $20 bill. >> why he says the change is racist and sexist. >> announcer: this is "new day" with alisyn camerota and chris cuomo. >> racist and sexist. >> make the case. >> i can't make the case! >> i thought you were going to say that to me. >> we'll talk more about that in the program this morning. >> good morning. welcome to your "new day." first up, donald trump and hillary clinton ramping up their attacks. trump shrugging off any suggestion that he has a cash
4:02 am
crisis or any kind of chaos within his campaign when it comes to fund-raising. and he says, let me show you how to truly insult an opponent. today, he's going to give a big speech, calling out clinton's record. >> clinton, meanwhile, with a preemptive strike, calling trump, quote, dangerous and unfit for the presidency, claiming that his plans for the economy would bankrupt america. so let's begin our coverage with sara murray. good morning, sara. >> reporter: good morning, alisyn. the war of words continues today. of course, it hasn't been a great couple of days for donald trump, between some disappointing fund-raising numbers and dismissing his campaign manager, but he's trying to move beyond all of that today and turn up the heat on hillary clinton. >> so many of the things he said were outright lies. >> donald trump is aiming to put hillary clinton on defense. >> you know, she's crooked hillary. let's face it. she's crooked hillary. she always has been and nothing's going to change. >> reporter: the presumptive gop nominee preparing to deliver a speech in new york city today, targeting everything from immigration to clinton's e-mail
4:03 am
scandal and even accusing the former first couple of improper dealings when clinton was secretary of state. >> her record is a disaster, in addition to taking in tens and tens of millions of dollars from people for lots of different things and lots of different ways, and countries that should not be giving her money or her husband money. >> reporter: on tuesday, he fired off preliminary shots, even questioning clinton's faith at a gathering of religious leaders. >> she's been in the public eye for years and years. and yet there's no -- there's nothing out there. >> reporter: trump's focus on clinton coming as he tries to pivot from days of staff shake ups and dismal fund-raising. trump ended last month with $1.3 million in the bank, compared to clinton's $42 million. but the real estate mogul argues her dollars come with a price. >> all of the money she's raising, that's blood money. that's blood money. >> reporter: the billionaire businessman still dangling the idea of self-funding in the general. >> i'll be honest, you know, i've never raised money before for this.
4:04 am
because i've never done it before. i think i would be very good at it. as far as i'm concerned, i would be very happy to continue to self-fund. >> reporter: even though he spent tuesday evening looking to shore up his campaign coffers at a new york city fund-raiser. >> reince, how are you feeling about the campaign? >> reporter: as trump and as allies put on a happy face and downplay concerns about the candidate's campaign war chest, going into a head-to-head battle against clinton. >> ever since trump became the presumptive republican nominee, republicans, saying, look, the fastest way to get the party to rally, to unify behind him is to go after hillary clinton. today, we will see just how well he prosecutes that case, and if he puts some of the republican skeptics at ease. alisyn? >> sara, we'll be watching for that. hillary clinton, meanwhile, going after trump's business record. clinton criticizing trump for making some of his own products overseas while going after others for doing the same. cnn's chris frates is live in washington for more. good morning, chris. >> hey, alisyn. well, hillary clinton used
4:05 am
donald trump's business record against him yesterday, painting the billionaire as more bankrupt deadbeat than a business genius, who would be a danger to the world's economy as president. and it folded neatly into her larger message that trump is unfit to hold the nation's highest office. >> he's written a lot of books about business. they all seem to end at chapter 11. >> reporter: in the battleground state of ohio, hillary clinton hit donald trump where it hurts, his business record. >> trump ties are made in china. trump suits in mexico. trump furniture in turkey. and i would love for him to explain how all of that fits with his talk about america first. >> reporter: trump responded directly to the charge. >> it's true. you know why? because they devalue their currencies and they make it impossible for companies to compete. unfortunately, my ties are made in china. >> reporter: clinton is also calling out the four bankruptcies that trump filed for casinos he once owned in
4:06 am
atlantic city. >> we can't let him bankrupt america like we are one of his failed casinos. >> reporter: and branding trump as dangerous to the economy. >> trump would take us back to where we were before the crisis. he'd rig the economy for wall street again. well, that will not happen on my watch. i can guarantee you. >> reporter: trump responded to the attacks in realtime, live tweeting as the hits kept coming. how can hillary clinton run the economy when she can't even send e-mails without putting entire nation at risk. and, "i am the king of debt. that has been great for me as a businessman." trump even posting this video response on instagram as clinton continues unloading. >> hillary clinton's only right about up wione thing. i understand debt and how to handle it. i've made a fortune for debt. but debt for this country is a disaster and obama has piled it on and she's been there watching. >> the latest cnn/orc poll shows
4:07 am
that voters believe trump would be better at handling the economy than clinton, a perception she's hoping to turn around. >> he has no real strategy for creating jobs, just a string of empty promises. but then maybe we shouldn't expect better from someone whose most famous words are, "you're fired." >> now, today, clinton will continue to talk about the economy, but instead of trashing trump, she'll double down on the vision he laid out in the primary, detailing plans to make college debt free, expand social security, and raise taxes on the super rich. and a little later this morning, she's going to meet with house democrats on capitol hill, as she continues to try to put that tough primary battle behind her, and unite the party. chris? >> and a little later, chris, she's going to get a big punch in the nose from donald trump when he gives his own rebuttal speech about taking on her record. we'll cover that on cnn, of course. now, let's get to the truth of the matter here about how much
4:08 am
money trump has and can he fund his campaign? michael cohen is the executive vice president of the trump organization, special council to donald trump, and if anybody knows what the books are, you do. what is the reality, counselor cohen? does he have the liquid cash -- because mark cuban came out and said he's not liquid enough. that's been picked up. what's the reality? >> first of all, donald trump has a lot of cash and donald trump is a very wealthy man. but i've never seen a fascination. we've gone almost two days of news cycle about donald trump's money. oh, my god, hillary clinton has $46 million. for mark cuban to come out, as far as i'm concerned, i find mark cuban to be politically bipolar. >> how so? >> i mean, one day he's dr. jekyll, the next day, he's mr. hyde. he's calling mr. trump and offers him the maverick center. >> trump did have an event at the maverick center. cuban set that up for him? >> he sure did. and he was incredibly complimentary. the next day, donald trump
4:09 am
doesn't have any money. if it's some sort of recognition that he wants, someone please go into the guy's twitter account, tell him how great he is, and call it a day. but this nonsense about how much money donald trump has and how much he raised. he could write a check tomorrow and take out for $46 million in a heartbeat. a >> but does he have the hundreds of millions he would neat in cash -- >> he doesn't need it. and what he showed in the primaries, it's not necessary. he spent $1 per vote and hillary clinton spent $15 per vote. she's a massive multiple, on top of that, the $1.2 or her $46 -- the real question that you have to look at is not how much how much money, but where is her mup coming from? >> why? >> it goes back to the whole clinton global initiative, where you start to have companies, for example, you have the top 15 law firms in the country donating to hillary clinton's campaign. you have the top ten pharmaceutical companies
4:10 am
donating to hillary clinton's campaign -- i mean, actually, your time warner is a donor. what do you think they're looking for? they're looking for political favor. and when you have this political favor, it's not going to help the united states, it's not going to help the american people to find jobs. it's only going to help hillary clinton. >> so you're saying he doesn't want the money because of where you have to get it from? but then how does he deal with the infrastructure and the needs to have print and commercial time to rebut the presumptions that come up in the race? >> he'll race the necessary money that he deems necessary -- >> from who? if you don't go to the banks or law firm, who's going to give it to you? >> many people. last night there was a great event, they raised about $6 million here in the city. i myself have raised $3 million for mr. trump in the last five days. he will have plenty of money in order to make this campaign what's necessary to win. >> now, here's what you're going to hear about this. two questions about the money so far. one, the clinton global initiati
4:11 am
initiative. i know that's a big ticket for you and you believe foreign governments adopted for influence. do you think it's fair criticism for trump to say, you've had foreign dealings as well. you rented to gadhafi to put up your big tent. >> donald trump wasn't secretary of state. >> but you've shown you're willing to do business with bad people? >> first of all, the whole thing with gadhafi, he didn't do business with gadhafi. it was through some intermediary third party. when they found out who it was, he was never pitching the tent on the property, and that was the end of that. he had no idea it was gadhafi. >> you don't think it's the same kind of compromise for trump adds clinton? >> absolutely not. she's secretary of state. there's not even a comparison that could be drawn. i'm a little shocked by the question. >> don't be shocked is by the question, it's coming from me, in terms of making it a parallel
4:12 am
playing field. the clinton campaign, it's not like he's adverse to doing business with people just because day don't support lbgt rights. >> there's a big difference. when you're secretary of state and they're giving you money -- >> they gave it to the foundation. >> which is no different than giving to it clintons. and who knows where that clinton global initiative money is going. part of the money from her campaign may be coming from the same people. it's to garner political benefit and those political benefits come at our expense. yours, mine, our children, grandchildren. the american people have a right in order to prosper. you cannot prosper when you have forbe governments with influences taking place inside the highest level. >> when you look at the money structure so far, trump has been giving money into the campaign as loans. now, i know that this is complicated. people should go online and google it, because loans within a campaign structure are different than typical loans. but there's a list of items of where trump is paying related
4:13 am
companies for him to do services. whether it's flying him around. >> it's all fcc rules and regulations. he himself has said he thinks it's ridiculous, but you've got to be compliant. if not, you end up with another complaint. >> has he made money on a race? >> absolutely not. and once you get these fcc complaints, that will be the next two days of stories. fcc complaint against donald trump. donald trump is about three things. all this is doing, whether it's this money issue, all this is doing is distracting the american people from what they really want to talk about, and that's jobs, the economy, and national security. of which donald trump ranks higher than hillary clinton by a multiple. that's all they really want to talk about. but you won't allow it. because it's a dishonest liberal media that wants to change the narrative. no, i'm not talking about you. you're great. >> thanks. i appreciate it very much. good thing i'm sitting across from you right now. >> that's true. otherwise, if it was behind your
4:14 am
back, i would be saying it. >> is it a fair criticism, though? he can talk about whatever he wants? when he goes up there to the podium and comes and sits in the chair, he can talk about whatever he wants -- >> no, he can't, because you're asking the question -- >> since when do you answer the question you're asked? you don't even do that, let alone these politicians. >> i'm answering your questions right now. zb >> he can talk about whatever he wants. >> these people are suffering, the only people who aren't suffering are the clinton global initiative. hillary, bill, chelsea. nobody gave them money for them to fly private with her $22 million in airfare. you know, i saw in the same "washington post" article, she demands for her $750,000, he demands a g-450 or better. that's a $40 plus million aircraft. there are five rooms -- >> but they're paying for -- >> they're paying $750,000 for 15 minutes. >> so trump's high ground is going to be she's too deluxe? he lives one of the most deluxe
4:15 am
existences in -- >> he's paid for it himself. she's taken that money from people like you and me who donate money because we want to be philanthropic. they're taking that money and using it as a slush fund for themselves. >> most of the deals we're talking about where she demands a big price, where people were paying for her to come and speak. >> because she's extremely interesting. and nothing that she says is coming really from her? >> people are willing to pay for her words. >> they're paying for access and paying for political favor. that's what you have. >> that's the speculation. you would have to prove it. >> it's not speculation. if you are an american and you want to see this country prosper, you need to vote for donald trump. and i'm going, one last thing with bernie sanders' people, look to see who the people are who are following bernie sanders. the young, predominantly college students. and why? well, because he's trying to give them a reason, all right, to take the education, because they're all educated, and they're all ambitious. they want to get out there into
4:16 am
the world and make their mark. the problem is, there's no jobs. if you're going to vote for somebody, you have to vote for donald trump. he's the only one who can create jobs. hillary clinton has never created a single job in her entire life. this is not, this is not -- it's not to be argumentative, this is fact. she's never created a single job in her life. donald trump is a job creator. all he wants to do is fix america. he wants to make america great again. and he wants to put americans first. >> trump -- look, i know all the slogans. trump is invited on a regular basis to this show to sit exactly where you are and make the case for how he'll make jobs, how he'll put america first, and how he will make it even greater than it is. because i don't accept the premise that it's not great right now. but he's got to take the invitation. >> if you go to places outside of new york city and you see the suffering, which i know you have, and i know you do, on your travels, you know america is not doing great. >> it's not doing as well as it
4:17 am
could. this is the best country in the world, michael, and you know it. >> 100%. but if we have a strong america, we have a strong world. when we have a weak america, we have a weak world. right now, we're a weak america. and that's why there's a weak world. >> well, there's certainly a lot of concern about that in the country. and again, you, your boss, always welcome to come and sit in the chair and talk about -- >> i'll see you tomorrow. >> take care, michael. so join us tonight. there are other names that need to be considered here. there's all of this talk, i want another choice. i want another choice. here's one of your options of another set of choices. the libertarians. you have two former governors, gary johnson and william we would from new mexico and massachusetts, respectively. what are they about and how are they different? you'll get those answers tonight at 9:00 p.m. and a few gun control effort to keep guns away from terrorists is now on the table. the bill from gop senator susan colins has cosponsors on both sides of the aisle. four other measures failed this week, but gop leaders hope to vote on this bill adds early as

4:24 am
in this election year with clinton and trump scoring record unfavorable ratings, voters do have a choice of third party candidates. of course, the odds are stacked against these candidates. they have to hit 15% in national polls to even make the debate stage. and that has not happened since ross perot in 1992. our next guest suing the commission on presidential debates to get that rule changed. we want to welcome green party presidential candidate, dr. jill stein, who joins us now. good morning, dr. stein. >> great to be with you, alisyn. >> great to have you here. let's take a little snapshot of how voters perceive you at the moment. this is a poll that was taken last month. and i just want to show our viewers, because it's interesting, 2% strongly favor you. 3% somewhat favor. but if you go all the way down to their perceptions, 87% don't know you or don't know enough about you. how do you plan to turn that
4:25 am
around? >> well, what's really interesting, is that even before we've been covered at all by mainstream media, and you know, this is about my first coverage by mainstream media, even before we've had any visibility whatsoever, we're already at 7% in the latest cnn poll. and i think this is happening because people are so distrusting and disliking of the two major candidates and their political parties. i think word is spreading by itself, because i'm the one candidate actually who will not only make higher education free, that is, public higher education free, but also will actually cancel the student debt and bail out our students, like we bailed out the crooks on wall street, who crashed the economy. so, i think there's a lot of interest in our campaign and word is actually spreading all by itself. just in the last month, we've come up from 2% to 7%. and that's, again, even before we've had coverage. >> so if this is your first
4:26 am
major media appearance, let's just start at the big question. why do you want to be president? >> well, as you may know, i'm a medical doctor. i'm a physician, not a politician. and i think we badly need a change. people are sick of the rigged economy and they understand if we're going to fix that rigged economy, we have to fix the rigged political system. so i say, basically, i've been practicing clinical medicine. now i practice political medicine, because it's the mother of all illnesses. and we need to fix our broken political system if we're going to cure all the other things that very seriously threaten life, limb, and even survival itself. >> let's talk about those issues. and certainly the issues that voters think are most important. and let's see where your position is, versus someone like bernie sanders, with whom you align fairly closely. so let's look at some of these issues. on stricter gun control, sanders, yes. you, yes. prioritize climate change? yes, yes. increase taxes on the wealthy?
4:27 am
yes, yes. break up the big banks? yes, yes. keep using military drone. here you diverge. you say, no, you would not use military drones. and again, what you just touched on, free college, yes. but you go further than bernie sanders and you want to cancel student debt. so policy wise, are you the bernie sanders of the green party? >> i think you could say the green party itself is bernie sanders. i'm not unique in the green party. i think what's different between bernie sanders and myself a, or the biggest difference, really, is he was trying to have a revolutionary campaign in a counter-revolutionary party. i'm basically inside of a revolutionary party that supports this agenda and is not working like the democratic party, to basically bury that agenda. >> one of the things that bernie sanders' critics hit him for was how. how do you pay for these things? how do you offer free college tuition and erase all of the debt that students have racked up? somebody has to pay for that.
4:28 am
>> well, it's actually pretty simple. you may recall that we bailed out the bankers, actually to the tune of the $16 trillion, if you include all the free loans. but it was about $4 or $5 trillion worth of quantitative easing, which as you may know, you know, it's kind of a magic trick. that's really all you need to know about it. but basically, it's an expansion of the money supply. it doesn't actually cost taxpayers anything. so, if we bailed out the guys who crashed the economy through the their waste, fraud, and abuse, it's certainly time that we need to bail out our younger generation, who we rely on to really lead the way forward into the economy of the future. and in terms of the cost of public higher education, it's really important to remember, it pays for itself. we were counting very carefully when we used the gi bill to pay for free college for returning soldiers. and what we found after world war ii, for every dollar that we
4:29 am
taxpayers put into that, we got back $7 in return in revenues and benefits. so it's actually a very good investment for all of us. >> you have gone after hillary clinton pretty directly. you're not a fan of her policies. let me read a couple of tweets you just sent out. you said, hillary hauled in $1.8 million for eight speeches she gave to the big banks. how could she possibly take them on. #she'snotwithus. and then you say, every day is national flip-flop day for hillary clinton. remember when she supported the tpp or when she did not support gay marriage? so is that your strategy, to peel off voters from hillary clinton? >> well, you know, the case is, actually you don't really need to peel off the voters for hillary clinton. we know, in fact, from another cnn poll done a couple of weeks ago that the majority of hillary clinton's supporters actually
4:30 am
don't support her. they merely oppose the other major candidate, donald trump. and the same is true for the majority of donald trump's support, is they don't actually support him, they just oppose hillary clinton. at the same time, we know that about 60% of voters are clamoring for another voice and another choice, one that's actually an honest broker and is not part of this very corrupt, two-party system that's been throwing everyday people under the bus. >> people do clamor for another choice, but they also sometimes consider a third party candidate or a green party candidate, ala ralph nader in 2000, to be a spoiler. let me just quickly show you this poll. clinton is at 42%. 38%, johnson is at 9%, and you are at 7%. if you add that 7% to, say, donald trump, he then beats hillary clinton. so what do you say to the spoiler criticism? >> so, first of all, polls have been showing that actually when gary johnson and myself have added in, hillary clinton's lead on most polls actually
4:31 am
increases. so it's not -- it's not straightforward at all or intuitive how this works. i feel like a lot of people really feel like the system is broken. i don't think we fix a broken democracy by suppressing opposition voices. we can actually fix this very simply with the stroke of a pen, by passing an election reform called rank choice voting, that actually lets you rank your choices. if your first choice loses, your vote is reassigned to your second choice. we have this in many cities around the country and many countries around the world. i encourage people to go to my website, jill16.com if you want to find out how to fix it. but the bottom line is, we have a broken system, a broken economy, a broken health care system, broken international security under the two political parties that have been throwing us under the bus. we need to stand up and fix it, because they're not going to fix it for us. >> well, there you go. dr. jill stein, a pleasure to have you on "new day" this
4:32 am
morning. thanks so much for letting it all out for us. >> thank you, alisyn. good to talk. >> that's the take of one third party candidate. tonight, you will hear from another. there is a cnn town hall for the libertarian ticket. gary johnson and william we would will join our own chris cuomo for a conversation on the issues of this race. that is at 9:00 p.m. eastern, only on cnn. chris? all right, when it comes to money, it matters in politics, and right now hillary clinton is crushing it on the fund-raising front. donald trump, not so much. but he says that's because he doesn't want the dirty money that clinton takes. we'll look at the money race here and why it matters, next.
4:33 am
4:34 am
4:35 am
4:36 am
money, money, money, money. it matters in politics. and it's a real mixed bag when you look at the race right now. let's take a look at what's going on with money with clinton and trump and what's motivating the raising of money. the big question now, too, trump, can he get the money? he says, absolutely, and i don't want the money clinton is getting. let's bring in our man, david chalian, our cnn political
4:37 am
director. always good to see you, my friend. money matters, we don't even need to discuss it. but in terms of where he gets it, let's take a look. okay, $3 million there, $63 overall, $1.3 cash on hand. now we compare it to clinton. obviously, big difference. how do you see trump's point of view on this, about why he doesn't care? >> listen, donald trump has a couple good points to make on this. one, he says -- we haven't seen the proof of this, but he says he could make that $1.3 match her $42 -- >> his guy just said it this morning. he could write a check like that. >> we'll see. he put money into the primary election and helped him win nomination. but we do see the discrepancy. until he opens his checkbook, she has this mountain of cash to fund the full infrastructure of a campaign that she's in charge of. >> so he says, so what, it doesn't matter, this is different. but here's the ratio you were
4:38 am
just talking about. the reason, the pushback on trump is history. when you look at these other races, the money differential has mattered in terms of whoever has more on winds up winning. >> that's true, but obviously, 2012, you had an incumbent president and a challenger. look at 2008, what it's like this time around, it's an open seat. and at least they were in the ballpark together. yes, money does matter, it does seem to help the victor, if you have more of it. but this was a competitive race. donald trump says, hey, i get a lot of free media. i have proven to win the republican nomination by spending so much less than anyone else who's won the republican nomination in recent history. all true. the difference here is he's said, he's said, he's relying on the rnc now and their coffers to field his program, staffers. he has not done any television advertising yet. so right now, she's owning the air waves, defining donald trump. >> and tell the audience why the general election is so much different than the primaries in terms of the importance of ground organization? was you're not dealing with 9 million, you're dealing with 60
4:39 am
or 70 million you have to get out. >> in probably about 8 to 12 states where you really have to focus, because that's the path to 270 electoral votes. but look at this. do you see there's not even a little television screen here? this is just -- >> it's all online. >> he's not spending -- the real money in politics, as you know, any campaign, the lion's share of their money goes to television advertising and right now, in these key battleground states, hillary clinton is defining donald trump negatively and putting her own positive message for herself out there. >> people will here that and they'll say, i don't get, trump goes on tv, but remember this. when this show goes to commercial, what pops up locally in your commercials? it may be hillary clinton saying something about donald trump. he's not competing on that level. he's just doing the interviews. you're saying that matters. >> i'm saying it could matter. listen, donald trump's broken every conventional political rule and he may be able to break this one too. but everything we know is that
4:40 am
it does tend to matter. >> does chalian care about this? the biggest expenditure he's had is on hats on t-shirts. and there's been a little bit of stink put on him about him paying his own companies to provide services to the campaign. now, i haven't been able to work the numbers in any way that suggests that he's making money on his campaign, but does this matter? >> we haven't seen a candidate who owns his own plane, who owns his own venues, where he can hold political events, who owns his own vineyard. so this is just not something we've seen in the past. hillary clinton is spending a ton on air travel, also. she's spending to hold events at venues as well. they just don't have her name on them. she doesn't own them. he doesn't seem to be enriching himself, yet, as we can find out. this is just reimbursing his own -- >> but this is politics, not litigation. so it's about perception being reality. it's about optics. do you think it looks good for him to say, hey, i'm loaning my campaign money. and by the way, a lot of that money that i'm loaning is going
4:41 am
back into my own companies? >> i don't think it's terribly troubling for him, because i think he has proven to be so much about the trump brand that the fact that he stands -- that's part of who he is. >> how important or powerful is it for him to say, you know why i don't have the money she has? because i won't take it from the people she takes it from. you look at her list of donor, his guy was happy to punch me in the nose saying time warner was on that list, obviously cnn's parent companies. banks, law firms, i won't take their money. the foreign money that went to the clinton global initiative, i won't take that kind of money. you can't in an election, you can haven't foreign sovereigns. is that important? >> it is. because every trump rallies i went to, this was one of the most important points. no strings on me. i'm a totally independent guy. the fact now that he's pivoting to try to raise money for the general election, to go to big dollar donors and stand in fancy restaurants and say, hey, i need
4:42 am
your money or help the rnc raise money, that's a little off-brand from where he's been. this is also why. donald trump is the kind of candidate, like a bernie sanders or a howard dean, who has this grassroots army out there of die-hard supporters. normally, they would get a ton of low-dollar donations, but when you're a billionaire who has totally boasted about the fact that you're funding your own campaign, it's a disincentive for folks who would normally be so excited to give you small-dollar amounts that add up to a lot, he's now trying to turn on that spigot. we'll see if it works for him. but starting to raise money now and not fully self-funding is a different part than we saw from the nomination race, which was a successful piece for him. >> david chalian breaking it down, make us smarter and better. thank you very much. alisyn? >> chris, the gun control battle is ramping up again on capitol hill. there a possible breakthrough for this week? we will ask a florida lawmaker leading a hearing on the lone wolf threat. that's next. when josh atkins books at laquinta.com. he gets a ready for you alert the second his room is ready. so you know what he gives? i'll give you everything i've got and then some.

4:47 am
were presented on monday. they all failed. and senator chris murphy who was speaking out, who was behind one of them, he said, as a result, basically by letting people on terror watch lists buy guns, he said republicans are selling weapons to isis. what's your response? >> well, i mean, i think that's rank demagoguery. i mean, we all, i think, want terrorists to be dealt with, no weapons, no explosives, and not even walking the street in our country. but i will say, i'm privileged to serve with a lot of post-nchb veterans, including myself who served in iraq on the republican side. and these are people who have actually fought the precursor to the islamic state, so those types of comments, i think, just don't sit well and it's not productive to try to develop a strong anti-terrorism strategy. now, this guy obviously should not have been able to have a firearm, but there were also a whole bunch of warning signs leading up to this. and islamic radicalism was the precursor. and when i see the attorney general, loretta lynch, saying
4:48 am
in orlando that we don't know why he did this, that is not instilling a lot of confidence in the ability of this government to be able to combat some of these threats. >> okay, but let's stick to why and how he was able to get his hands on a gun. you're not comfortable with the idea that this shooter was able to get a gun, so what's the solution? what could have prevented him from getting his hands on a gun? >> well, i think that the first gun store owner, where he was trying to get a lot of ammunition and body armor, day did the right thing. they called the fbi. they reported him. he was speaking arabic and he was acting very strange. and this was somebody who had been on his radar before. he had attended the same mosque as abu saleh, the first american suicide bomber in syria. so i think the bomb was dropped there and he was able to effectively go to another gun store a couple days later or a couple weeks later and get firearms. but the issue is, he was not on any type of list when he should have been somebody who was flagged. and so i think there was a
4:49 am
breakdown with law enforcement. >> yeah, look, the fbi says the gun shop owner didn't have any information. they didn't have a name of anybody, their surveillance camera wasn't working to prevent video. so they said basically that was a dead end for them. however, in congress, let's talk about legislation. and if there's any legislation that can happen to prevent this from ever happening to another community. senator susan collins, republican of maine, has a compromise bill that will be voted on this week, basically, no fly, no buy. if you are on a watch list that doesn't allow you to get on a plane, then you shouldn't be able to buy a gun. would you vote for that? >> for that? >> i would have to review it. anybody who is a terrorist shouldn't have firearms. the vast majority are already prohibited persons. you also have to have an innocent american who gets put on the list ee renniously, has to have the right to defend their rights and to be heard. i'm not sure how that is done.
4:50 am
>> well, look, here is the thing, congressman. the pendulum swings back and forth about civil liberties, and there are a few thousand americans on the watch list. a couple of hundred may be on eerroneously. are you saying you feel ro strongly about protecting those couple of hundred people being on the watch list rather than the hundreds of millions of americans who feel very strongly that more legislation needs to be passed to keep terror suspects from getting their hands on gun. >> it is an open question whether there is the right to appeal, because there have been people on the lists for all the time. but here is the thing. when you are allowing the executive branch to deprive somebody of a constitutional liberty without any process, that's something that affects all americans. that's a precedent that can be used. maybe you don't care as much about the second amendment, but maybe you care about the first,
4:51 am
or maybe you care about the fifth. so i want to make sure that people are not deprived of constitutional freedoms without having the ability to simply contest it. if there is probable cause, then the government can be able to delay it. but that's very important. because you want to make sure there is being done in accordance with the law. >> you are interested in senator marco rubio's senate seat. is marco rubio running? >> i think we're going to find out very shortly. our filing deadline is friday at noon. and i think he is going to make a decision in advance of them. so a lot of people in florida are waiting with baited breath to see what he decides to do. >> as are we. thank you, congressman, for being on "new day." the big question, will the u.k. leave the e.u., called the brexit vote. why should you care. you should. it will have an impact on global economies. christine romans will break it down for you, next.

>> we can't let him bankrupt america like we are one of his failed casinos. she has a bad temperament. she would do so badly with the economy. >> king of debt has no real plan. >> she is crooked hillary. she always has been. nothing will change. >> maybe she shouldn't expect better from someone who is most famous words are "you're fired." >> he went to the pulse nightclub earlier saturday night, before returning to carry out his attack. >> working to identify anyone he had contact with that night. >> i don't want to hear thoughts and prayers. they want us to do something. >> i put on my head, i had no idea i was going to get stung. >> this is "new day," with chris cuomo and alisyn camerota. >> you're not supposed to laugh, but you kind of have to laugh. >> she is is okay. the barney head did not swallow her whole. she is okay.
5:00 am
but having a barney head stuck on you, is there anything more nightmareish, really. >> we have kids. we understand that sometimes things get stuck on their heads. it could be very scary, but also funny. >> we'll explain the outcome. g good morning, donald trump going on the attack today, giving a speech today on hillary clinton's record and judgment. >> hillary clinton portraying donald trump as a con man and dangerous for the economy. we have the race covered four the only way cnn can. >> exchanges more insults, after a rough couple of days after donald trump firing his campaign manager and dismal fundraising numbers. he is looking to move beyond that today and hold hillary clinton's feet to the fire. >> so many of the things she
5:01 am
said were outright lies. >> aiming to put hillary clinton on defense. >> she is is crooked hillary. let's face it. she always has been. nothing will change. >> the presumptive gop nominee, preparing to deliver a speech in new york city today. targeting everything from immigration to clinton's e-mail scandal and even accusing the former first couple of improper dealings when clinton was secretary of state. >> her record is a disaster. in addition to taking in tens and tens of millions of dollars from people for a lot of different things and lots of different way, and countries that should not be giving her money or her husband money. >> on tuesday, he fired off preliminary shots. even questioning clinton's faith at a gathering of religious leaders. >> she has been in the public eye for years and years. and yet there is no -- nothing out there. >> trump's focus on clinton, coming as he tries to pivot from staff shake-ups and dismal fundraising. he ended last month with
5:02 am
$1.3 million in the bank, compared to clinton's $43 million. the real estate mogul says it comes with a fries. >> it is all blood money. it is blood money. >> the billionaire businessman, still dangling the idea of self-funding. >> i've never raised money for this, because i've never done it before. as far as i'm concerned, i would be happy to self-fund. >> even though he spent tuesday evening looking to shore up his campaign coffers at a new york city fund-raiser. as trump and top gop allies put on a happy face. and down-play concerns about the candidate's campaign war chest. going into a head to head battle against clinton. now, for weeks, people have been telling trump, the fastest way to unify the party is to go after a common enemy, to go after hillary clinton. today, he will test that theory and see just how well he can prosecute the case against clinton. back to you, chris. >> all right, sarah, we'll see. the speech is at 10:30, and
5:03 am
we'll be covering. before going under fire, she was blasting trump as reckless, hypocritical, making products overseas, and insisting to put america first. what was the impact and what happens next. chris frates, live in washington with more. good morning. >> hey, good morning, chris. hillary clinton did use donald trump's business record against him yesterday. she painted the billionaire as more of a bankrupt deadbeat than a business genius. she argued he would be a danger to the world's economy as president. that all folded neatly that donald trump is unfit to hold the highest office. >> he has written a lot of books about business. they all seem to end at chapter 11. >> in the battle ground state of ohio, hillary clinton hit donald trump where it hurts. his business record. >> trump ties are made in china. trump suits in mexico.
5:04 am
trump furniture, in turkey. and i would love for him to explain how all that fits with his talk about america first. >> trump responded directly to the charge. >> sure, and you know why? because they devalue their currencies and make it impossible for companies to compete. unfortunately, my ties are made in china. >> clinton is also calling out the four bankruptcies trump filed foreca casinos he once ow in new york. >> we can't let him bankrupt us as we are one of his casinos. he would take us back before we were the crisis. he would rig the economy for wall street again. well, that will not happen on my watch. i can guarantee you. >> trump responded to the taxes in real time. live tweeting as the hits kept coming. how can hillary clinton run the economy when she can't send
5:05 am
e-mails without putting entire nation at risk. and i am the king of debt. that has been great for me as a businessman. trump even posting this video response on instagram, as clinton continued unloading. >> hillary clinton is only right about one thing. i understand debt and how to handle it. i made a fortune for debt. but debt for this country is a disaster and obama has piled it on an she has been there watching. >> the latest polls showing trump would handle the economy better than clinton. >> no strategy for creating jobs, just a string of empty promises. but then maybe we shouldn't expect better from someone whose most famous words, "you're fired." >> now, today clinton will continue to talk about the economy, but instead of trashing trump, she'll double down on the vision in the primary. detailing her plans to make college debt free, expand social
5:06 am
security an raise taxes on the super rich. a little later this morning, she'll meet with house democratics on capitol hill as she continues to put a tough primary battle behind her and unite the party against donald trump. alisyn. >> okay, chris, thanks so much for all of that. we want to bring in now the chairman of the democratic caucus, javixavier becerra. good morning. >> good to be with you. >> cnn got a preview of what donald trump plans to say about hillary clinton today. so let me put it up on our screen some of the issues he plans to hit her on. human rights violations. he says, i think that's in reference to some of the countries that the clinton foundation has taken money from. some countries with dubious ethics violations. trade deficit, that in the past, obviously, she supported nafta, tpp, immigration. again, the clinton foundation and e-mail investigation. which of these do you feel she is most vulnerable on?
5:07 am
>> that looks like a sophomoric list that some bully around the neighborhood is putting up, because he is getting wiped out by all of those who are now showing that this guy is nothing like what he says he is. he is neither the best, the gresest or toughest. it sounds like a sophomoric list to me. when you take a look at the fact that hillary clinton has been there to make some of the toughest decisions, whether it was giving the president the advice to green light the attack on osama bin laden, putting the nuclear proliferation, she has made tough decisions, getting 8 million kids more health insurance. she has been there, done it. donald trump puts up sophomoric explanations and excuses. >> donald trump seems to think that she is vulnerable on the money issue. whether that has come into the clinton foundation, or whether it is money that she herself has
5:08 am
taken in terms of donations or payments for speeches, so last night, he used some very strong language about this money. let me play that for you. >> i don't want to devote the rest of my life for raising money from people. when she raises this money, every time she does, she is making deals, saying could i be the baambassador to this, give a break. all of the money she is raising, it is blood money. she is getting tremendous amounts of money from wall street. she'll take care of wall street. lots of people, she'll take care of those people. >> what do you say to people who think there might have been some sort of sketchy timing or quid pro quo in terms of making deals with people she has gotten money from? >> accusations aren't facts, and donald trump should follow-up those accusations unfounded, outlandish accusations. he just says things, doesn't believe he has to show what he is talking about.
5:09 am
and it is hard to believe a guy who is unwilling to disclose his own tax returns to let people see where he really stands on his money, and say that he is going to accuse others on things that he can't prove, and say we should judge them on that. it's really interesting how he does this. he dodges the issues when it comes to him, and then he deflects by giving all these accusations that are unfounded as the reason to not be with someone else. >> it does seem to be somewhat effective to plant the seeds in voters' minds. here is the latest poll. a new cnn/orc poll. who is more honest and trustworthy. clinton or trump. trump rates higher. he gets 45% to her 37%. 17% say neither one of them. so are these attacks making a dent? >> oh, i don't doubt that attacks will have a dent. the difficulty for donald trump is, he can't hide over the next four or five months of campaigning. he at some point will have to
5:10 am
show us the money. show us the proof of all of these accusations. he forgot when you run for the president of the united states, you may be able to in a primary make outlandish statements because people are too busy trying to figure out who are the people running for president on the republican side, but now it is just one-on-one. at some point, you all, we all will start saying, show me, show me what you mean. start by, donald trump, revealing your own taxes, so we've seen what you have done. you say you pay taxes, you say you make contributions. you say you're wealthy guy. i doubt any of that is true, because if it were, he would have shown us his tax returns a long time. every presidecandidate for pres has done that. he is unwilling to do it. why, because he has something to hide. >> congressman, you know one of the favorite parlor games in washington is to talk about who is on the vice-presidential short list. are you being vetted to be hillary clinton's
5:11 am
vice-president? >> i have no knowledge of that. i know that my name along with several other names are being circulated by a lot of folks. you all probably have more information than i do. but what i could tell you is secretary clinton will make a great choice. once we're out there, all of us campaigning together, with the candidate for president, hillary clinton, we're ready to make her the next president of the united states. we're going to have a great team, be unified and be ready. i trust her choice for vice-president. >> are you interested, if you get the phone call? >> wow. you should ask me that after, the closer we get to the convention, when something like that might be true. at this stage, i can't even tell you i'm being vetted. >> congressman bas bacerra, tha for being on "new day." >> thank you. >> you're going to hear from gary johnson and william weld, their position on issues. they're going to join chris to
5:12 am
discuss everything related to the race, 9:00 p.m. eastern, only on cnn. all right, north korea testing two ballistic missiles. let's go to barbara starr with more. how do they see it. >> good morning, chris. very much catching the attention here at the pentagon this morning, because this time, both of the missiles actually flew. previously they exploded. one of these missiles flew about 90 miles, the other one about 150 miles. before falling into the sea of japan. the missiles came off the launcher, and at least flew some distance, an indication that north korea now is making progress on this mobile missile. why is that so significant? a mobile launcher can, in war time, it can shoot a missile and move very quickly to hide from spy satellites. if this to work eventually the
5:13 am
way it is planned, to be able to reach guam or the outer islands of alaska, it could be very difficult for u.s. spy satellites to keep track of where the north koreans have these launchers. what is the bottom line. they're making progress on mobile missiles, making progress on intercontinental missiles, and making progress on nuclear warheads. a big decision for potentially the next president about what they want to do about all of this. >> all troubling developments, barbara. thank you for the reports. could medical marijuana be having an impact on teenagers using the drug. they're finding pot users among high schoolers has gone down, it went down to 21% in 2015, compared to 22% in 2011. the numbers put marijuana use by high schoolers in colorado
5:14 am
slightly lower than the national average. >> i don't get it. all right, so it's all fun and games until a massive barney mask gets stuck on your head. now we' are unclear if it comes from the pain of barney on the head or someone is dragging her in two different directions. so darby ricener's friend captured this on video, which i'm sure she is just loving. they had to go to the fire station, and there is barney, cheesing it up with her friends in the back. they got it unglued from her head. it took 45 minutes. first responders need to spend their time doing it. but they got plastic hats out of it. maybe she should think before putting that on again. >> look at the fireman, he seems
5:15 am
to be enjoying this process. >> well, listen to the screaming. but you know, they're pulling her in two opposite directions. >> they're trying to get the barney head off of her. >> that's the way you do it. >> yes, tug the legs on one side. >> and the head on the other. >> so i've heard. >> that's how they used to kill people in the middle ages. it's called the rack. humans? >> people. donald trump says he has got plenty of money, but the fundraising for his white house run is coming up short. how big of a trouble spot is this for trump. we're going to be talking to the first member of congress to endorse him. >> i think you have to cut away. introducing rhinocort® allergy spray from the makers of zyrtec®. powerful relief from nasal allergy symptoms, all day and all night. try new rhinocort® allergy spray.
5:16 am
all day and all night. so guys with ed can... take viagra when they need it. ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for sex. do not take viagra if you take nitrates for chest pain or adempas® for pulmonary hypertension. your blood pressure could drop to an unsafe level. to avoid long-term injury, seek immediate medical help for an erection lasting more than four hours. stop taking viagra and call your doctor right away if you experience a sudden decrease or loss in vision or hearing. ask your doctor about viagra single packs.
5:17 am
5:18 am
5:19 am
you might think that because he has spent his life as a businessman, he would be better prepared to handle the economy. well, it turns out he is dangerous there, too. just like he shouldn't have his finger on the button, he shouldn't have his hands on our economy. >> hillary clinton, coming out of the box swinging, talking about trump's fingers and hands, not supposed to be on the button or economy, and trump will fire back. ale give a speech in just two hours. let's discuss what he will say and what the responses should be from the campaign to the allegations made by clinton.
5:20 am
we have new york congressman chris collins, co-chair of the trump campaign house leadership committee. we will remind, he was the first member of congress to endorse donald trump. looking like a good bet, right now, congressman. always good to have you on "new day." >> good to be you with, chris. >> first an opportunity to respond to the main attacks. he is billed as a businessman, hillary clinton says he is a bad businessman, the casinos, the desire to not pay people on time, his making things overseas, these are all negatives. they should not be seen as positives. your take? >> well, certainly, chris, donald trump is the only candidate here that has ever signed the front of a paycheck and has created thousands of jobs. the business world is a rough and tumble world. it changes day-to-day, week to week, month to month. donald trump has done business around the world. he knows what it is like to compete around the world. he knows what it is like when
5:21 am
the playing field is not level, as it is today, not today with china and mexico. so sure, he has had his ups and downs. no business that hasn't had its ups an downs. you'll see companies buy other kuns that doesn't work out, it is a changing world. donald trump is the only candidate with experience creating jobs and competing in a worldwide environment, and that's why the public and polls are showing, he is the one they trust, the public trusts on jobs and economy. >> does it give you any pause that he has had more bankruptcies than any other corporation structure? >> well, i don't know that that's true. he certainly, you know, had his issues with casinos, but again, it is a rough and tumble business world. when you take chances, you build something from scratch, sometimes it doesn't work, sometimes it will work for six or eight years and then perhaps things shift and change. so no, i don't have any concern whatsoever that donald trump, who has been creating jobs, who
5:22 am
knows what the -- what we need to get the jobs back from mexico and china, where we don't have a level playing field and the public r public realize z, i think the only job hillary ever created was for her daughter at the foundation. >> trump's responses are twofold about his campaign cash. one is i can fund it whenever i want. he won't put out his tax returns, so we can't vet his tax flows. neither can advance that argument, i don't think. his oh other answer is i don't want the money clinton takes. you raise money, all people have to in congress. who will he get money from the rnc if not for his own campaign if he doesn't go to the types of people on the donor list? >> i think it comes down to this is such an unconventional election. normally you introduce yourself, define yourself to the public. you raise your money to define your owe pone nenlt as best you
5:23 am
can. and you deliver a message. one thing donald proved in the primary, he doesn't need the money most candidates do. both donald trump and hillary clinton are well-known to pretty much every american. it is baked in. his message of bringing jobs back from china and mexico, keeping the borders secure, and making america great again for all americans, is well-known. donald trump, first of all, not going need the kind of money a traditional campaign would need. but i'm convinced, and i'm sure he'll have whatever is needed, working with the rnc. the fundraising is just beginning. >> right. okay, but again, it will be interesting to see where he gets the money from. you know what the pockets are, right. this is a defined universe. unless he can tap new kinds of money, it will be interesting. the other allegation he makes, he makes it a direct charge, that the clintons through their foundation, took foreign money as a quid pro quo operation that they got paid. they were on the take. he says it a hundred different
5:24 am
ways, none of them with any proof. do you believe you can establish any connection between any sum of money from any foreign sovereign, anything that was done by hillary clinton as secretary of state? >> well, again, what i would say is the perception in this case is as hillary clinton was secretary of state and bill clinton, our former president, was running around giving speeches, making millions of dollars and making money for the clinton foundation, there is something about that that doesn't sit well i think in most people. that's why hillary clinton's trustworthy is -- >> wait a second. there are lots of reasons her negatives could be reason. >> yeah there are a lot of reasons. >> you'll have to come back. we've never had two candidates that have the popularity or the negatives that these two people have. they're both upside, even with all the money and the media. neither have anything to brag about on that score. it is not enough to say that there is something about that that seems weird. it seems weird, especially when
5:25 am
donald trump keeps saying that there is a nefarious connection between the donation an the actions. i'm just asking, you congress n congressman, as the co-chair. is there anything you can point to that can suggest, even suggests, here is something she did as secretary of state and it was for this person who gave this amount of money to the foundation? >> no, i think this is more where there is smoke, there is fire. i'll let donald trump speak for himself in that regard. i'll just say there is a reason hillary clinton is not trusted by the public, and i'm sure much of what she and bill have done since he left the white house has a lot to do with it. they've become extraordinarily wealthy without creating jobs and working in the private sector like most people have to. she won't be able to fix that. people are unlikely vote for someone to be president to be trustworthy. >> i've given you an opportunity to put meat on the bones, but i
5:26 am
appreciate you making the case. i'll talk to you moving forward. >> sure, good to be with you. you've got the republicans, democrats, and historic negatives on both sides. it opens an opportunity for a third party. you have libertarians, the green party. gary johnson and william weld are getting an increasing amount of buzz. why? we're going to talk to them questions on a range of topics. 9:00 p.m. eastern only on cnn. chris, as you know, four gun control bills going nowhere in congress. now another one. what's different. we'll ask a senator co-sponsoring this bill, next. . he gives a hundred and ten percent! i'm confident this 10% can boost your market share. feel me lois? i'm feeling you. boom! look at that pie chart. the ready for you alert, only at laquinta.com.

the terror attack in orlando dividing congress, over how to fight radical extremism and guns. the accept natsenate failing to bills, but now a new measure getting a in you look. let's bring in bill nelson, a co-sponsor of the compromise
5:31 am
bill being introduced by maine senator, susan collins. thank you for being here on "new day." let's talk about this new bill and what makes you think this has a fighting chance when the other four died? >> because we have a republican sponsor. unfortunately, the votes on monday broke along partisan lines, but this time, a group of politic political cintrists have come together. and we'll get most of the democrats for this. the question is, in view of the nra full-out, full-court president press opposition to it, can they get from 15 to 20 republicans to support it. >> let's talk about -- >> and that's how you get to 60. >> let's talk about what's in the bill. is this basically the no fly/no
5:32 am
buy this eritheory, you shouldn be able to get a gun? >> it is actually very little difference from diane feinstein's bill that was voted down on monday. hers on american persons, which is american citizens and those legally here, like green card holders, that would have affect only 5,000 people in the country. susan collins would affect only 2,700 people in the country. you can see it is very little difference. it is the no-fly list on susan's, plus the selectee list, and that's 2,700. >> okay, so the fact that diane feinstein's didn't work, you believe this stands a chance because it is a more narrow scope and the nra won't hold
5:33 am
sway with some of your colleagues? >> it is the fact that we've got bipartisan support. there are improvements in susan's bill as to the appeals process if you mistakenly get on, for example, the selectee list. it makes it easier to get off. that's an improvement. both those bills by the way included my bill, because neither one of them would have caught mateen. mine says if you had been on the watch list in the past, asthma te -- as mateen had, the fbi is pinged with a notice. >> given how much power you do believe the nra holds in the halls of congress there, what do you think will happen with this bill? >> i think it will be close. if we get 40 democrats out of
5:34 am
46, they've got to come up with 20. if we get all 46, all they have to do is come up with 14 republican senators. either way, it is going to be close. >> senator chris murray said on monday when the other measures failed, quote, the republicans have decided to sell weapons to isis. do you agree with that? >> yes. i'm very proud of chris and doing that 15-hour filibuster, which i participated in, which 40 members of our caucus participated in. because it brought this issue to a head. we're talking about it, and we're actually going to vote on something again that's got a chance. >> i mean, of course, the republicans didn't know that this gunman nor did the gunshop owner know this gunman had fledged allegiance to isis, so is that not a bridge too far saying the republicans have
5:35 am
decided to sell guns to put -- decide to sell weapons to isis? >> but he had been on the terrorist list, and the bill that we're going to vote on it, would catch a person like that. because it would ping the fbi. alisyn, i owe this to the people of orlando. they want action. i had people, when i was down there interviewing with chris in the heat of summer on south orange avenue, i would have people come up to me just enveloped, hug me and grab me, senator, please do something. i owe it to them. >> you spent a great deal of time with senator marco rubio. do you think this catastrophe in both of your home state has changed his opinion on whether or not to seek reelection? >> i don't know. i really don't know.
5:36 am
it has gripped the state of florida, and i specifically reached out to marco when i found out he was coming to orlando, i said marco, you and i need to stand in front of those cameras together to show that we are united in this crisis. but i don't know what his political calculus is about running for reelection. >> senator bill nelson, thank you. we'll be following what happens in congress this week. thank you so much for being on "new day." >> thanks, alisyn. when we look at the state of play within this presidential election, there is an identity issue going within the gop. donald trump has caused this party to reconsider itself. as a result, there are big divisions. question now is what will trump's effect be on the party down the road. all the elections to come in this cycle. answers ahead.

5:42 am
making a lot of hey on late night. here is your late night laughs. >> a new election campaign saying the trump campaign isn't doing well and practically broke. they started with only $1.3 million, which is almost $8 million less than bernie sanders' campaign. even bernie was like how does it feel like poor, you loser. you're in the bottom 1%, even worst. >> donald trump is so broke, he has had to stop feeding his hairpiece. he sent it to a farm upstate. it will be so much happier up there, chasing rabbits. >> in an interview earlier this morning, donald trump said that he has gotten the worst three weeks of publicity i've had in my life. his biggest problem is that he can't get this guy to shut up. >> it continues the pace in late
5:43 am
night laughs. >> think it is getting more funny. because what they're doing is becoming less and less exaggerated. they're really hughing to what is happening in the campaign. >> two schools of thought on donald trump. some say he is hurting the republican party. others, arguing he is helping them. so which one is it? but first, while her third grade classmates were having fun, kelly lim was in the fight for her life. triple a. triple amputee helping others as a doctor. what a story, with our doctor, sanjay gupta. >> kelly lim had to overcome a lot to become a doctor. in fact, she is lucky to be alive. >> at eight years of age, i lost both of my legs, my right arm, and a few fingers on my left hand. >> kelly had bacterial men

i'm not feeling the love for your party. many of the gop feeling that the rhetoric is turning off-key constituents and threatening his own white house hopes. others believe he is redefining the party and making it stronger than ever. let's discuss. >> let's do that. >> shall we. we have cnn political

commentator, margaret hoover. let's show with a simple show of hands. who believes trump is dividing the party in a negative way. shocking. mci nniney grabbed her hand harder. >> the show of unity. why, hoover? why do you feel, we'll put up numbers to support you, by the way. >> okay. >> choice for nominee, i don't know how much passion. trump, 87%, someone else, 50%. half the party, we feel divided what to do. now it's 87%. so what is your case? >> this is where traditionally in any campaign, the candidate consolidates all of his support and really runs sort of strongly into the convention with the wind in his sails. what donald trump is having to do is shore up the members of the conservatives in the

republican party that aren't on his side already. he had a big evangelical confab. normally that's sewn up in iowa, in the south. that wasn't the case. he has to win every vote mitt romney won, plus. he is losing water right now, let alone all of the demographic groups he has turned off. >> what do you say to republicans like margaret that he is dividing the party? >> i don't think he is dividing the voters. it is republican leadership that's not uniting. i think he is very good for the party. we look back when eric cantor, somebody in republican leadership, at that moment, the gop should sl said something is going on in this party, we are being rejected, we saw it in nearly every state, the anger towards the gop was like 70%, 60% some places, 50% at best. so there is a lot of anger. donald trump has captured it and
5:51 am
given voice to republican voters. >> so why is it 51/48 within his own party. >> the same poll showed 47% showed sanders or. so i think that's on par with what's happening on the democratic side. a few weeks ago, after he won the nomination, 80% of voters -- >> but clinton has a real challenger in sanders. trump is alone. really, it is just trump or other. he is almost splitting it with other. >> he had 17 other opponents, and it is completely fair that other people prefer another candidate, but in the end, they're going to vote trump. that's what matters. >> what about kaley is saying, republicans had been asleep at the switch, not with their finger on the pulse what has been happening, and that way unifying the voters. >> for the point with eric cantor, what happened is very localized, he hadn't been tending the fences at home and that's why he lost.

kelly is right. the existense of trump, it is a significant portion of the base, it is still a minority, but it is a real thing. here we are, and donald trump is the presumptive nominee. we have not, it has attributed to a lack of economic policies that have answered grievances on behalf of working class americans. >> kelly, what about the media mainstream media, suggesting that the gop is having an identity crisis because donald trump is an unorthodox candidate and he is making people question what their platform is, what they stand for? >> he definitely is. but i think that's a good thing. as margaret mentioned, the gop has left white working class voters behind. it is time for the republican party to say question free trade when it doesn't work for middle class voters.

perhaps make sure people have health care in a way that embraces free market principles, but make sure people have health care. this is something the gop has failed to do and expanding the platform is a good thing. >> the speaker makes a very different case about trade. he points out not just statistics, but a lot of is politics, have you lost jobs because of trade. if you want an ambitious number, yes, you've lost about 35,000 jobs, one of every seven jobs being created every month, unless you have down month. the numbers, it is about the optics, what your party wants to be. the question is, if the speaker of the house and leadership and a plurality of your people are one way, how does trump build the tent bigger. >> he needs to push leadership to realize that the gop must expand. we have lost two elections and part of that is because there is a very narrow base of republicans, and the republican leadership has sent a message, you have to fit a certain ltest
5:54 am
>> kelly, air talking about expanding the base and party. you're exactly right. that's what donald trump needs to do, expand it to hispanics, women. that's what, you know, speaker ryan is trying to do. i mean, speaker ryan has spent the last two weeks, and the next two weeks, rolling out two significant policy papers each week, anti-poverty, reforming entitlements, all of these things which frankly are a one republican method for some time lating the economy, and frankly, answering the market failure on the republican side, answering these white working class americans have with the republican party who hasn't provided them with any solutions. the way to do it to your point, grow the tent, bring more people in. don't alienate people and push them out. >> agree trump has gotten off message at times, and that's why it is pivotal, he goes to minty communities, here is what i can do economically and stays on message and doesn't get off track on issues like we saw with judge curiel.
5:55 am
>> he is just not doing that so far. >> he is. >> his rhetoric has almost precluded his entrance to any new community. when you say the mexican judge isn't going to be -- all of the offensive things he has said, these people aren't even going to listen, he has turned them off so much. >> marthank you both for your perspectives. >> a programming note in. >> leadership matters and you are going to have the speaker of the house with wolf blitzer, exclusively at 5:00 p.m. today, and what his party needs to do. >> very interesting, tune into that. meanwhile, we have the good stuff for you, next. >> yay. you pay your car insurance
