tv Erin Burnett Out Front CNN June 27, 2016 4:00pm-5:01pm PDT
pentagon. thank you so much. be sure to join us tomorrow in "the situation room." i'm brianna keilar. thanks for watching. "erin burnett out front" starts right now. market plunge, dow down in two days as the british government is in shambles tonight. donald trump changing one of his signature proposals, ban on muslims. trump fighting back after hillary clinton and senator elizabeth warren team up against him. let's go "out front." good evening. i'm erin burnett. out front tonight, global panic, fallout deepening from england's decision to leave the eu.
dow now loss is nearly 900 in two days, trillions gone like that. one stellar credit rating now cut by standard & poor's. hillary clinton battling over brexit, slamming trump today. >> when britain voted to leave the european union, he crowed from his golf course about how the disruption could end up creating higher profits for that golf course. he's in it only for himself. >> reporter: >> trump fired back on twitter, quote, i called brexit. hillary was wrong. watch november. more on the political fallout here in the u.s. in a moment. global market plunge. phil, where you are, fear ruling the day today. >> reporter: absolutely, erin. stocks tanked, british sterling hit a 30-year low against the
dollar. that crucial credit rating by s&p, aaa rating knocked down by two notches. those are just reflections of what people are feeling on the streets. enormous fear, uncertainty about what happens next as people realize there are so many important issues regarding this country that are now uncertain. there doesn't appear to be a plan. british government has said at the moment it's not going to trigger article 50. this is the official mechanism beginning the process of withdrawing britain from the european union. that gives a two-year timeframe for the negotiations that must follow. the government says it's waiting until the ruling conservative party chooses a new leader after david cameron resigned. we won't know who that is until september at the earliest. that has many feeling what's been branded as buyer's remorse. people who voted to leave but
now regret doing so for various reasons. they did not think that the consequences would be severe. they did not think that the leave vote would win but they were wrong. 3 million people signed the petition on the parliament's website, asking for a do-over. david cameron says that can't happen. the results for the most must be respect eed regardless of all t division within this country at the moment, erin. >> phil black, thank you very much. good move there by david cameron. you have to stick by a vote or else imagine what would happen to democracy. the u.s. campaign trail. both clinton and trump think brexit could help them, and in a big way. >> that's right, erin. this is becoming quickly a major flash point between them, both donald trump and hillary clinton are framing this in advantageous ways, they think to their own campaign. hillary clinton came out this weekend and today really drilling down that she believes that donald trump's response to the results make him unfit to be
president. and that hers she believes is the steady hand at the wheel. the campaign is out with a national cable tv ad, painting this as such. here is a small part of that ad. >> every president is tested by
world events. but donald trump thinks about how his golf resort can profit from them. >> when the pound goes down more people are coming to turnbury. >> stocks are tanking around the woshld. >> sprinkler system. >> he's talking about his sprivengleer system. >> in a volatile world, the last thing we need is a volatile president. >> donald trump and his campaign has responded to that ad in comparison, saying the frame something wrong, they believe. donald trmp saying that hillary clinton, he believes, has bad judgment. her campaign before the vote was saying that she supported the uk remaining in the union. donald trump saying that shows her bad judgment and he took to twitter to say as such.
quote, clinton got brexit wrong. i said leave will win. she has no sense of markets and such bad judgment. so almost bragging there, a bit, erin, that he predicted the results in some capacity. donald trump has not had a formal campaign event since he got back from his trip abroad. tomorrow he will be outside pittsburgh, pennsylvania, for his first big campaign event since that. this will be billed as an economic rally. i expect he will bring this up. >> a big economic speech perhaps tomorrow. thank you very much. out front right now, former campaign manager, clinton pou supporter. "new york times" political correspondent, contributor to cnn's inside politics. peter, let me start with you. phil black is reporting from the ground in uk. now a nearly 900-point market drop. people are scared. >> it's the uncertainty, going into unchartered territory any time you get a situation like that, people will try to take some of their risk off and not be exposed to whatever could
potentially happen going forward. this is a place we've never been before. so i think that it's probably a smart thing for people to lighten up a bit and not be fully exposed. let's see what happens. >> it's a place people have never been before, jonathan. hillary clinton, donald trump, both trying to seize this as a positive. >> yeah. if you're hillary, she's looking at it as uncertain times, turbulent moment here on the world stage and the assumption from her camp being that people rush to safety, that they'll seek somebody who is a more stable, familiar choice. the trump assumption, obviously, is that these times call for real change and that nobody is going to present that change like him, that hillary is kind of the face of the establishment, that people are obviously deeply unhappy with right now. and they're both putting down wagers on very different outcomes on this. >> clinton's line is all about trump has made brexit all about himself, that his golf course is
going to make morme money. here is more of what she said today in a speech. >> he crowed from his golf course about how the disruption could create higher profits from his golf course even though within 24 hours americans lost $100 billion from our 401(k)s. he tried to turn a global economic challenge into an infomercial. >> just to be clear, here is exactly what he said. let's not take her word for it. here is what he said in turnbur turnbury. >> look, if the pound goes down, they're going to do more business. if the pound goes down, more people come to turnbury. >> does she have a point? should he not have been on that day it's good for me?
>> he's an actual businessman. he took 200 million pounds, invested it into europe. specifically into that golf course. he went over there to support his son to rebuild that golf course and spent one day over there. what he said was americans are going to come over here. dlart is going to be stronger than it was a few days ago. if you are going to be a tourist, this is obviously a great place to come. what we're talking about someone who understands the international business community. hillary clinton has never done business internationally. if she had, she would have had her finger on the pulse, able to predict that the brexit vote was going to go in the opposite direction that she had said it was going to. and the difference is, she is running on foreign policy credentials as former secretary of state. >> basil, do you buy the excuse? >> no. and the juxtaposition couldn't be more clear. donald trump's first response was about his pocket. hillary's response was about how this would impact the lives of american families. that, to me, is the real sort of test of leadership.
like how -- what is your initial response like? to jonathan's point earlier, as we look at this, the brexit vote was led, in part, by a bombastic former mayor of london. economic anxiety and xenophobia. this should be a cautionary tale for americans in this election as well. if a lot of brits are waking up saying maybe we shouldn't have made this vote, i'm hoping here in the u.s. there are americans that won't make an impulsive vote and think about the kind of stability they need as leader. >> there's the tweet, i called brexit. hillary was wrong. is it right to be celebrating? she has a point. a lot of americans just lost a lot of money. >> they did. but what it goes to is his vision for the country, being able to predict things that are going to come in the future. one of many examples. 17.4 million people went to the ballot and made a binary decision, choosing to get out of the european union.
the reason for that is because of the inability for those locals to control their own destiny. i think it's very similar to what's taking place and what has taken place in washington the last 30 years. people want fundamental change. they want a difference, whether it's a blue collar person or whose real wages were less than they were 20 years ago, they want something different. that's what europe was doing. >> what they've seen in the last two days is a nearly thousand-point drop in the dow. >> yeah. >> that's a big deal. senior adviser said what americans need is a steady hand not a reckless -- that's what they're saying dond trump would be. i had mark cuban say they're going to go down 20% or more. i heard bill gross say no, they're not going to go down at all. >> what are the platforms and what is each candidate going to bring to the table? is it tax reform, reforming obamacare? there's a lot of things that really mean a lot to american
people. you really haven't gotten a sense on either candidate. >> donald trump wins, markets tank, fear mongering or something to it? >> if markets tank after donald trump wins it is fear mongering, but i don't see it happening. >> you don't see it happening? >> no. either candidate is -- there will be some sort of upheaval short term after the election irregardless of who wins. markets will stabilize and the economy is what matters. earnings matter. growth prospects, so on and so forth, the same story going on for years will continue in november. >> even what you're saying now, jonathan, that's good news for donald trump? >> absolutely. >> he's not feeding into the it would be horrible, which is what the clinton camp wants you to think. >> after he got the nomination last month there was no real impact in the markets. >> not one bit. >> it could be different, nomination versus election is a different story. but it's striking watching him.
this should be a golden opportunity for him. here, the british voters have gone to the poll and have sort of stated their independence and it gets to his own message, nationalistic appeal of america. >> make america great. >> america first. his own comments, his own rhetoric and his own financial interest. it's striking that he has these opportunities and is -- >> not seizing. >> in a way that would be helpful to his campaign, he indulges in different things. >> we'll hit pause there for a moment. next breaking news, trump shifting his position on the muslim ban. you heard me right. a new policy and a new target tonight. hillary clinton hitting the campaign trail with senator elizabeth warren together for the first time. >> you want to see goofy?
look at him in that hat. >> i do just love to see how she gets under donald trump's thin skin. >> clinton's attack dog keep trump out of the white house? boeing plane bursting into flames today, hundreds of passengers on board what you see right there, trapped in fear later this hour. . ...want my number? and cash back for driving safe. and the power to automatically find your car... i see you car! and i got the power to know who's coming and when if i break down. ...you must be gerry. hey... in means getting more from your car insurance with the all-powerful drivewise app. it's good to be in, good hands.

about to release a new memo in which he will not call a ban on muslims specifically. instead he's calling for people coming from countries with known terror links. this is a major shift. >> no question at all, erin. think about donald trump's campaign. the two things that are probably most sen on mus with it are building a wall on the mexican border and ban on muslims senting the united states, something that trump posed to much fanfare and has been one of the driving forces behind his support throughout the republican primaries. advisers working on a policy memo to start ratcheting that back. perhaps another sign that donald trump's campaign is pushing toward the general election. donald trump tonight shifting his focus back on the general election, scheduling a major economic speech tuesday in pennsylvania, a swing state he has pledged to win in november. >> we're going to win
pennsylvania in the general. >> reporter: the billionaire also holding a second event tuesday in another key battleground state. ohio. trump, from staffing to fund-raising to strategy, moving quickly to get his campaign on track for the general election. amid continuing concerns from the highest levels of the gop. >> i think there's no question that he has made a number of mistakes over the last few weeks. i think they're beginning to right the ship. >> i didn't hear you say whether you thought he was qualified. >> look, that ought to be up to the american people to decide. >> reporter: those concerns bolstered by poll numbers that are consistent on two fronts, a national lead for hillary clinton and trump surpassing clinton when it comes to unfavorable ratings. with the convention rapidly approaching, trump continues to struggle to unite the party telling "new york times," texas senator ted cruz and ohio governor john kasich will not
get speaking spots if they don't endorse the billionaire. >> use of force is the last resort. >> i would bomb the [ bleep ] out of them. >> and cruz and kasich supporters to block trump from getting the nomination in cleveland. >> we are going to have a good convention and confident we're not behind the clinton campaign. >> erin, it's worth noting a lot of top republican officials, including speaker paul ryan among them, have advised donald trump to move away from this idea of the muslim ban. they've been opposed to it from the very beginning. now it looks like even trump's internal advisers have started to suggest that they do is starting to happen. one thing when you talk to clinton officials, they are very clear. they'll not let him move off this initial position. someone already sent me a democrat e-mail linking to the initial statement which still listens on line making very clear donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete
shutdown of muslims entering the united states. they don't want him to move off ta position and will continue hitting him on it no matter where he moves himself over the next coming weeks and months, erin. >> interesting point. my panel is back with me, along with the man leading the trump delegate revolt at the convention, steve lonigan, planning the revolt against trump. all right, corey. okay. he came out with the muslim ban. now he's dialling it back saying it's not a muslim ban but a ban on certain countries. you hear what phil is saying. a lot of his core sport don't want him to change on this. this has been a core part of his platform. can he ratchet this back without hurting his base? >> look at that statement on december 7th. until we can find out what is going on. what that means is an immigration policy that allows us to find out who is actually coming into our country and do so legally. what we need to do is revamp our policies of immigration coming in. what we see right now, i've
spoken to many governors about this, our country is accepting syrian refugees, putting them into their states. we don't know who they are, which states they're going into, which cities they're going into and the governors aren't being told what to do. they're no vetting taking place. that's the concern donald trump has. it's not just about a religion. it's about the vetting process of allowing people to come n here is one classic example. the woman who went and xhitd jihad in california. >> in san bernardino. >> came in on a k-1 visa. the state department did two background checks on her and was unable to find any type of information because they were precluded by law by looking at her social media accounts. i could have gone and looked at her facebook page. >> you have a point there. it's unclear at that time if she had anything on social media when they actually looked. there's a question about that. corey to the heart of this, you're trying to say it's not a shift. it is a shift, okay? here is what he said in
december, the rest of the sentence. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on. >> you're right about the what the hell is going on part but the muslim part was pretty clear, not on people coming from countries sponsoring terror, but ban on muslims. >> that's true but we have a problem with illegal immigration in this country right now. he says he's going to build a wall to stop the immigrants coming in from mexico. fundamental job of the xwost. everything else is extra. >> corey's not asking my question because there's no great answer for it. >> if we don't protect our own citizens, what kind of government do we have? >> steve, will this help someone like you? >> no. >> if he's not going to make it about muslims anymore, someone
like you may say i'm more likely to get on board. >> no, that's not true. he has failed to galvanize the republican party. now he has smacked his hard core base in the head. his people were counting on this position. he will demoralize his own base. now you have a double pronged sword, double-edged sword. 70% -- 77% republicans support him. he is dropping in the polls. now demoralizing his own base that he needs more than anything. key to winning an election -- corey knows this, he has been a campaign manager -- is to get your troops marching. now they're saying wait a minute, what about the wall? if he's going to back off on the muslim ban, what about the wall? what's in that audiotape of the "new york times"? you're seeing this explosion of people saying donald trump is down 12 points in the polls, going to take down the republican party. the question i have for reince priebus and the republican party, what's the tipping point?
>> erin, erin, you have to let the battleground states zblsh lose every one of them. >> that's not true. new hampshire and franklin pierce poll that came out, he's dead even with hillary clinton. all those battleground states he's within the margin or ahead in all of those states. hillary clinton has spent millions of dollars running ads against donald trump. he hasn't spent one dime in ohio, pennsylvania. either even or ahead in pennsylvania right now. a state that -- >> erin -- >> back off the muslim ban. >> let's get back to this issue. you made -- he may go back on his statement about muslims. let's also remember that he said he was going to institute some kind of test, number one. number two, you may forget what he said but you're not going to forget how you made you feel. and how he made people feel is that this man is unstable and unfit to be president of the united states. if he is talking about banning -- >> that's not true. >> -- entire religious groups from this country. >> do you know how he made me
feel? safe. what americans want to be is safe. >> let me go back to the obama point. >> if we can't live in our communities because we're so afraid that the next door neighbor is about to commit a terrorist attack and we can't turn them in for fear of being called a racist or fear of being accused of something -- >> i don't think that's true. >> that's exactly what happened in san bernardino. >> what's this point about president obama and syrians coming into this country? the president actually has a very, very rigid vetting process for the syrian refugees coming into this country. tens of thousands have been -- asked for refugee status. there are a small percentage of them that have gotten that status. there is a strong vet. there is a strong vet. >> talking to a leader in the middle east they do acknowledge there is kind of no way to do a background check of many syrian refugees. not saying that they're terrorists but because these papers and documentation just doesn't exist. jonathan martin, this key question, right, of whether it will help him back off this ban,
paul ryans of the world, mitch mcconnells of the world will hurt him with his base, demoralizing his base, as you said, steve, which way does it go? >> in a primary, especially for republicans, are so vastly different than a general election. this is the challenge that he has now. this played really well in the primary. but he has pressure now from his own party to move off this issue that he really has no choice. in doing so, he does risk turning off his own base. look, i think the fact is that he will be seen as a hard liner on immigration. hillary will attack him as one. he will bring up the issue over and over again. he does risk raising the question with some of his really hard-core supporters about why he's doing this. this proposal was off the charts popular. >> yes, it was. yes, it was. >> base of the party really likes this. the fact that he's backing off but now does tell you that somebody has gotten to him and said, look. >> it doesn't work. >> quick point, does this have something to do with you leave
and you wouldn't have recommended him to do this and now -- >> donald trump base supporters are not going anywhere. six candidates in the primary tried to take them away from him and they couldn't do t people want fundamental change in washington. the base wants fundamental change. people haven't had a voice for 30 years want donald trump to go in and change the way washington works because it's been broken for way too long. >> pause for a moment. unleashing a new attack on senator elizabeth warren. tonight he is calling her not only pocahontas but a racist. plus, hillary clinton's big admission. >> a lot of people tell pollstmt ers they don't trust me. >> so, what is she going to do about that? flo: [ ghost voice ] oooo!

tonight attack dog elizabeth warren slamming donald trump, appearing with hillary clinton for their first joint rally together in the 2016 race. the question is, could there be many more? could she be the vp? >> i'm with her. yes, her. >> hillary clinton and elizabeth warren, joining forces today for the first time in the campaign. >> donald trump says, he'll make
america great again. it's right there. no. it's stamped on the front of his goofy hat. you want to see goofy? look at him in that hat. >> today's event in ohio, fueling speculation that warren could be selected as clinton's running mate, massachusetts senator using the opportunity to unleash a blistering critique of donald trump. >> what kind of man roots for people to lose their jobs, to lose their homes, to lose their life savings? i'll tell you what kind of a man. a small, insecure, money grubber who fights for no one but himself. >> reporter: and using trump's controversial comments throughout the primary season against him. >> donald trump calls african-americans thugs, muslims terrorists, latinos rapists and criminals and women bimbos. hillary clintonelieves that racism, hatred, injustice and
bigotry have no place in our country. >> reporter: clinton voicing appreciation for warren's tenacity. >> i do just rov to see how she gets under donald trump's thin skin. >> reporter: clinton is hoping that warren will also help her win over more progressive voters in the democratic party, who backed bernie sanders during the primary. the former secretary of state today striking a populous tone. >> we must have an economy that works for everyone again, not just those at the top. >> reporter: clinton and warren today sounding very much united. but that has not always been the case. warren remained neutral throughout the democratic primary fight, only endorsing clinton earlier this month. and in a 2004 interview with pbs, she criticized clinton's position on a piece of bankruptcy legislation. >> she has taken money from the groups and, more to the point, she worries about them as a
couldn't st constituency. >> as clinton hopes with warren's help she can block trump from the white house. ed with several campaign operatives who told me they were watching closely today the body language between these two dynamic female leaders, watching closely how the crowd would respond and mindful of whether warren would overshadow clinton. from the reaction of the audience, they told me the clinton/warren pairing actually did not disappoint them. >> suzanne. my panel is back with me now, charles blow. basil, let me start with you, though, is this really a dream team for the democrats? certainly for the bernie sanders' supporters. >> i think this is a great ticket. it's not disqualifying that elizabeth warren might be her vp choice. also, as people are talking about body language and crowd reaction and so on. i think part of the issue, too, is as long as bernie sanders is out there, sort of doing his thing, that we need somebody in there that's going to be
engaging supporters that bernie may have had, and others that may have been on the fence. i don't think there may have been many. what you saw out there was tremendous excitement and energy for a great ticket. >> they call her a progressive icon for a reason. >> i don't think hillary's donors in manhattan would think it's a dream ticket. that's for sure. >> i don't think that's true. people vote for the top of the ticket, right? i think she has demonstrated particularly when she was in the senate and for full disclosure, i worked with her in that time. she got to the senate. there was real consternation if she would be able to work with folks on the right. she did. republicans said we actually worked with her and she put her nose to the grindstone and worked and created good legislation. >> there's that history, charles. there's also to the point that jonathan is raising, under george w. bush, secretary saying not only will he not support donald trump but go out on the limb and not take the wuss
answer and say i'm going to vote for hillary clinton. i have not talked to hank paulson i would bet he would not vote for hillary clinton if elizabeth warren is on the ticket. >> how many hank paulsons are there in the world? >> there are independents. he has a personal issue. >> personal issue and stake in the economic universe. >> financial system. >> is very singular. you know, i look at this ticket -- not -- supposed ticket. it may be a little too early. in this moment it is great for hillary clinton. i mean, you can allow someone to play the kid in the room as long as you have adults in the room. so, as long as there weren't terrorist attacks happening and as long as there weren't, you know, the 600-point drops on the dow because of the brexit it was okay for people to say i like this guy, donald trump. he's punching up, hitting the establishment. it felt okay because nothing really horrible was happening. everything was relatively
coasting. now that you have actual things happening, you want to know that the person you have been rooting for could shift gears and also be an adult. donald trump has basically failed at both turns. he failed in -- >> how does elizabeth warren -- to the elizabeth warren point, how does she help with that? >> i think what we're missing is the hillary clinton part of this. at this point, running a brilliant campaign. she is stepping into that void that donald trump has left by turning attention to him. she is being a very -- all the things we started thinking about negative for hillary, that she's kind of stiff -- >> trying to play into her favor? >> having a fire brand stand next to her it doesn't overshadow her now. >> fire brand, corey, elizabeth warren goes after donald trump like nobody could, sp a female donald trump. which she kind of is in this regard. here are some of her best lines.
>> a proven businessman, a proven failure. you want to see goofy? look at him in that hat. he will crush you into the dirt to get whatever he wants. every day, it becomes clearer, that he is a thin skinned, racist bully. you, donald trump, are a total disgrace. >> that's pretty effective. >> let's talk about elizabeth warren. she lied her way into harvard university saying she was american-indian, native american. then she said that's a folklore i've always been told. she took a job way from somebody else, because of affirmative action at harvard university. what has been her single accomplishment in the u.s. senate? nothing. terrible senator, she would be thrown out of office summarily were she from any other state except massachusetts. she criticized hillary clinton from taking $40 million of wall street money, refuses to endorse
her in the primary process until just now, only female democratic senator in the u.s. senate to refuse to endorse her until just now and then they appear on stage like best friends. >> corey does make a great case. >> contrived. >> you stand next to the person you hate and pretend you're best friends. >> bernie comes out in a more fullsome way for hillary, she can fill that void and help bring the progressives home. is she going to be the vp? probably not. can she be an effective surrogate? as you see, she can be. after sort of washington gridlock, a steady hand at the tiller, she probably won't put a fire brand on the ticket. she doesn't need that help. she wants somebody who reinfo e reinforces a message of steadiness. more surrogate, less vp. >> let's say this, though.
if the worst you can find of elizabeth warren saying about clinton is criticizing her and saying that wall street is part of her constituency and look at all the leaders of the republican party and all of the horrible, wretched things they said about donald trump and now they're coming around and saying now they support him, where is the hipocrisy? that's a staggering level. >> everybody knows in the real world you don't say derogatory things about the person that stands next to you. it only happens in politics. it's time to put somebody in there who isn't politically correct. >> stand next to him after chris christie had to drag him through the mud. >> i'm sorry. i am sorry. >> how he said she was a great secretary of state now the worst one in history. they all do it. thank you all. out front next, hillary clinton admitting that people do not trust her.
>> i personally know i have work to do on this front. plus dramatic new video of plane passengers looking out their windows. this is the wing of a 777. this actually happened this morning. we'll be right back. ♪ what are you doing? sara, i love you, and... [phone rings] ah, it's my brother. keep going... sara, will you marry... [phone rings again] what do you want, todd????

[crowd cheering] [crowd cheering over phone]
i personally know i have work to do on this front. a lot of people tell pollsters they don't trust me. now, i don't like hearing that. and i've thought a lot about what's behind it. you know, you hear 25 years of wild accusations, anyone would start to wonder. it's certainly true, i've made mistakes. i don't know anyone who hasn't. you can't just talk someone into trusting you. you've got to earn it. >> rnc is seizing on her comments releasing a statement saying, after trying to skirt transparency laws of a secret server that put national security to list and then waging
a 15-month long campaign of deception about it hillary clinton need not look further to see why americans lack faith in tear government. >> time is running short here. voters are beginning to make impressions of tear candidates. five months away from election day. she wants to present a contrast with donald trump here. she brought this up herself in a speech in chicago. that's important to note. she's not answering a question. this is part of a strategy here going forward in the summer. clinton campaign is trying to get ahead of a couple of things. one, that fbi investigation, the interview looming out there about this long-running e-mail scandal. there's also the benghazi report still coming from that congressional committee that is still going to be coming out at some point before election day, likely before the end of the summer. she's trying to get a bit of a
head start on this. any time a politician acknowledges a shortcoming -- say, i know i have work to do on this, it usually plays well here. we'll see if it hurts her case here. it's absolutely true. she does have a shortcoming on this. her advisers aren't exactly sure how to fix it. >> when it gets to her unfavorables, jeff, nothing she has done so far has seemed to work. perhaps a sense of we'll throw spaghetti at the wall. they have to get those unfavorables down. what is it now, 55%? >> i mean, the only sort of upside about her unfavorables is the fact that donald trump's are even higher, erin. about to enter a general election, period, where the unfavorables are really driving this here. trust is one thing. donald trump may have a slight edge, at least in our latest cnn poll. take a look at these numbers. donald trump has trust of 45% of people. and hillary clinton, 37%. one of the issues here. she's trying to raise that, trying to sort of be upfront on
this. we'll see if it actually works here. more than anything, erin, it's a prebuttal for what's to come here in the coming weeks. >> thank you very much, jeff zeleny. out front next, plane catches fire after an emergency landing nearly 250 passengers were on this boeing 777 watching from their seats, flames engulfing the wing. this was in the air. plus clinton and warren, from matching outfits -- yes, we noticed. we haven't said anything yet but of course i noticed. is this for real? tomorrow is not a given. but entresto is a medicine that helps make more tomorrows possible. ♪ tomorrow, tomorrow... ♪ i love ya, tomorrow in the largest heart failure study ever. entresto helped more people stay alive and out of the hospital than a leading heart failure medicine. women who are pregnant must not take entresto. it can cause harm or death to an unborn baby.

tonight new details about a plane that burst into flames in the air. this is what passengers saw when they looked out the window. all 241 people on board while this happened are safe. renee marsh is out front. terrifying to imagine looking out your window and seeing that. how did it happen? >> investigators are still looking into the cause. boeing 777 was traveling from singapore to milan. two hours into the flight, engine oil warning came on, forcing the pilot to turn back around, make that emergency landing. once the plane was on the ground, the plane's right engine burst into flames. you're seeing that amazing video there. the 222 passengers were still on board. luckily, everyone was able to escape safely. what's interesting about the video, the flames are burning in
just one spot. it's actually burning across the span of the wing. while it's too early to know exactly what went wrong here, it is safe to say in order for that sort of fire to erupt, fuel had to be present. one of the first things investigators will want to look at is maintenance of this aircraft. was the fuel line secured and connected properly? if fuel was able to escape, it's very possible that the engine or even friction from the brakes on landing could have sparked that, erin. >> just so terrifying. it's not the first too many a 777 has caught on fire, is it? >> that's right. left engine of a british airways flight went up in flames just before takeoff from las vegas airport there. you see those images there on your screen. investigators at the time said that engine essentially broke apart, sparking that fire. now, we don't know if that had anything to do with the singapore airlines aircraft that you saw the video of.
but we should say overall, the 777 is still one of the safest aircrafts out there, erin. >> renee marsh, thank you so much. out front next, choosing a vp is clearly not always love at first sight. or is it? jeanne moos is next. the big hilton world sale is on honors members save up to 25% on brands like hampton, doubletree, hilton garden inn, and waldorf astoria so stop clicking around. book direct at hilton.com now that's satisfaction.
