tv CNN Tonight With Don Lemon CNN August 30, 2016 11:00pm-12:01am PDT
>> that's exactly right. i want to thank our panelists. time for "cnn tonight" with don lemon. this is cnn breaking news. >> breaking news. the ultimate showman and the ultimate show, donald trump may meet with mexico's president tomorrow. the candidate is about to take the stage in a rally in washington state tonight. election results are coming in for hard-fought primaries in arizona and florida. this is "cnn tonight." i'm don lemon. we're keeping an eye on a lot of things. meanwhile, hillary clinton faces the release of the fbi's report on her e-mails as soon as tomorrow. again, following a lot here for you. plus, polls just closing now in arizona where senator john mccain says he is in the race of his political life. and in florida, senator marco rubio wins the gop nomination.
as debbie wasserman schultz is projected to win her florida democratic primary. boy, a lot going on this evening. cnn's phil mattingly is with us from the trump campaign in washington state. mr. mark preston is here. jeff zellny as well in new york. go vlade you're here tonight. mark, i'm going to begin with you. the latest developments now that trump's immigration speech tomorrow, a possible meeting with mexico's president. what do you know about that? >> we couldn't make this up. >> it's like the apprentice. >> what we've been told -- we confirmed that donald trump's campaign is currently considering going down to mexico city tomorrow and meeting with the president down there. this was an invitation extended by the president of mexico a week ago to hillary clinton as well as donald trump and there is some talk now within the trump campaign that this would be a good leadoff before heading
to arizona to give the immigration speech. >> very quick turn around. these trip also take a while. so what is going on? how did they set this up? >> it is a logistical nightmare. the secret service is in knots right now trying to figure out if we are going to get him down there, how we will, what is going to be the safest route. there is a logistical nightmare. as phil mattingly will note, there's a good chance you will not see the u.s. press corps traveling with donald trump. you need a passport when you go over the border. >> phil, what are you hearing, if anything about this? >> reporter: the passports are clearly an issue. one of the key issues here, and mark laid out the outlines of it. but the trump campaign has made
no secret. tomorrow's speech on immigration is a crucial moment for the campaign and they are multiplying that about ten with the news of this visit. a couple of things i've heard, don, there were some serious internal deliberations on this, and not everybody inside the trump campaign is thrilled with this idea, but it is one that they are strongly considering right now. one, i'm told that donald trump personally is leaning towards one of the big question becomes how do you pull this off logistically? but also the key component is, what donald trump has talked about, the key components of his campaign are components that the mexican president hasn't necessarily agreed to publicly. so all of these things are in the works right now. don? >> jeff, you've been covering the clinton campaign. this is from the mexican president, his office tonight. it reads in part, last friday
the president sent invitations to both candidates, which were well received by both of the team's campaigns. there is no confirmation of the meetings at this point. any word on plans that the hillary clinton campaign plans to make the same trip? >> as of now, no. there has been a discussion should hillary clinton take the trip as a presidential candidate or not? as recently as the last several days or so, her advisers are leaning no, because she has the foreign policy experience. of course, she was secretary of state and her time this the senate as well, in the armed services committee. she knows the world. the world leaders know her. so until this moment, no, she's not. now, is that clad in stone? no, probably not. if donald trump would go to mexico, could she follow at some point? perhaps she could. but i think this is another example, boy, we've been paying back and forth on this immigration policy. this would be the cherry on top
of this, if we went to mexico before his speech in arizona. i'm not sure how his base would react to that. it would be perhaps a sister soldier like moment of this campaign, so we are not making any predictions. we've learned not to do that in this campaign. but the clinton campaign i think is going to not follow what donald trump is doing. so she certainly could be lured into it. but at this point, i was told as recently as last week, no foreign trips on their docket. >> this could be a really awkward moment considering how donald trump launched his campaign. >> they're sending people that have lots of problems and they're bringing those problems with us. they're bringing drugs. they're bringing crime. they're rapists. and some, i assume, are good people.
>> this could be a really awkward conversation. >> it could. but we've had this conversation at this table. donald trump in person is very likable. he's very conversational. it will be interesting to see if these two men sit across from each other and how that conversation ensues. i think what's important to note is that his supporters are probably going to be supportive of him doing this. however, he does risk stepping on his message tomorrow night. he does risk the idea of the mexican president coming out right after this meeting as assuming he goes as he's taking off saying we're not going to pay for that wall, and everything that happened in that meeting, you know, is all goth, let's say. and then he steps on his message. donald trump is then going to phoenix. >> this has been a one-way conversation at this point about the mexican government, what they're going to do. if he makes this a two-way conversation and gets some input -- >> may seem like a negotiation. >> they're going to say no,
we're not going to pay for the wall. so that will inject reality of a campaign promise. that could be one of the reasons that we'll see if this comes off at the end of the day. yes, they're talking about it. we'll see if this happens 24 hours from now. >> what could he say new? what could come out of this meeting? i know that's a broad question. >> we can't make predictions. listen, i think that no matter what, let's assume he does go, because it is under serious consideration and there's a good chance it does happen. i think donald trump will come out and say it was a gracious meeting and they're still going to pay for the wall. that is exact hill what is going to come out of it. but the mexican president is now being interjected into the conversation with him. and that in itself is dangerous. >> regardless, this is a continuation of a shift in donald trump's campaign where they are being open and being more presidential. this is definitely a part of
steven bannon's imprint on this, and kellyann conway's imprint on this. >> you took the words out of my mouth, because it's all about optics, as well, and him being more presidential taking a foreign trip, like he did when we went to louisiana. jeff, i'm hearing, is donald trump running behind -- excuse me, phil, is donald trump running behind? >> reporter: he is. he's in town, he's been here for a couple of hours, but he's having a fund-raiser first. what is going to be interesting, is he going to mention it at all? my understand is no, but he is behind right now. >> i want to get to manu, you've been following the primary battles for us tonight. john mccain in arizona. marco rubio, debbie wasserman schultz down in florida. what do you have for us now?
>> reporter: don, the florida senate race did not turn out to be that competitive. marco rubio winning with more than 70% of the vote against the businessman. remember when marco rubio dropped out of the presidential race after lose thing state by nearly 20 points to donald trump, he said that he was going to retire and be done with the senate. but instead, he was lobbied aggressively by republican leaders, mitch mcconnell on down, urging him to get into this race, because they believed he was the one person who could win and save the senate seat. as a result, all the other republican challengers dropped out of this race. now, rubio just speaking to supporters here had a chance to talk about what he called a "unusual way" he got back into the senate race. >> this has been an unusual road back here with you tonight. as you know, after my race ended in march for the presidency, i was prepared to become a private citizen and i was not prepared just to be so but i was excited
about what that meant. the runs here in the state have returned me with over 70% of them to the united states senate. now, in about 70 days, the people of florida will choose and they will have a clear choice to make. poll tex are at its best when it's about clear choices. >> that choice is going to be between him and patrick murphy, the democratic congressman who won his primary. expect murphy to criticize marco rubio, who told me earlier today, he would not commit to serving the senate for a full six-year term if re-elected. also in florida, debbie wasserman schultz wins her democratic primary against a man who actually was seizing on dissension from the bernie sanders camp. folks that believe she did not treat bernie sanders fairly, as dnc chairwoman. but she won that primary and we're watch thing hour john mccain in arizona. polls are closing.
he has a primary challenge against former senator kelly ward. we expect him to win that race. it will be interesting to see how tight of a margin that is. that is going to be a tough race for john mccain in november. polls show things very close with him and his democratic c i challenger. when we come back, donald trump's potential trip to mexico and his big immigration speech tomorrow. can he convince voters he's not flip-flopping on his signature issue? what if a company that didn't make cars made plastics that make them lighter? the lubricants that improved fuel economy. even technology to make engines more efficient. what company does all this? exxonmobil, that's who. we're working on all these things to make cars better and use less fuel. helping you save money and reduce emissions. and you thought we just made the gas. energy lives here. ♪

back now. donald trump preparing to deliver his big immigration speech tomorrow and he may meet first with mexico's president. back with me now, mark preston. cnn politics executive editor. joining us now, former trump campaign manager corey lewandowski, who is still receiving severance from the campaign. he is a cnn political commentator. angela rye, lahnee chen, former policy director for mitt romney. guess who my first question is going to? >> lahnee. >> so what do you know? i know you know. when is he going? what is he doing? >> i know that donald trump is in washington state right now, he's going to be in california tomorrow and then in arizona and he's going to be in ohio. >> is he going? >> that's probably an issue to address with the security guys.
here's what you have. you've got a leader with the president of mexico who wants to have the conversation with the two presidential candidates. there's an opportunity to talk very seriously about immigration reform. that opportunity is with donald trump right now and whether that meeting takes place today or in the future is clearly going to be important to have it. >> sounds like he's saying yes. >> it does sound like he's saying yes. >> what's your reaction? >> on the positive side, i try to do this once a week. on the positive side i think it's really important to note this could be an opportunity for donald trump to change the narrative, when he slid down the escalator and said mexicans are rapists and drug dealers -- this is an opportunity -- >> and some are good people he said that. >> thank you, corey. but he still said rapists and drug dealers. imagine that. but this is an opportunity to change that narrative. and what a time to do it, 70 days left in the campaign when he needs brown voters. i think it's a smart tactical
move. it's a little late and maybe he should have never said this stuff to begin with. >> and it's also a risky move. >> the problem is he's going to go to mexico and the president is going to say whatever the president wants to say about his immigration policy. so there's a little bit of a message issue there. and these trips are hard to plan. i helped plan governor romney's trip in 2012 when he went to england and to poland and to israel. and he took months to plan. even then it was a trip that had some hiccups. these things are hard to plan. it would be a miracle to plan it in three or four days. >> can we talk quickly about logistics. phil mattingly said there's an issue with passports and he needs the media there, right? >> you want to get as much press attention as you can, as possible, and you have a national press corps where you have to assume that most of them don't have passports so they won't be able to travel with him. at some point there will have to be some time with -- there would have to be some kind of pool of
reporters just to cover this meeting in addition to whatever reporters that americans news organizations have in mexico. in addition to that, you have a whole secret service situation where you're putting a candidate on the ground in a city, that is dangerous. you have to figure out driving routes, flying routes, security around the airport. i have to tell you, the secret service when they do foreign trips at least three weeks in advance, they send people out just to look at what roads they are going to drive and constantly looking at how to move somebody around the city. so it is a logistical challenge. >> is that part of the conversation -- your phone is beeping. >> the u.s. secret service will make sure every precaution is in place if he decides to go. security is the most paramount issue, no question about it. that being said, i think that we're learning about this tonight from a news account but this has clearly been in the works for at least three or four days that we know of. so the real question is what normally takes a politician multiple weeks to do donald
trump gets done in three or four days. i think that's the difference. >> i would think -- go ahead. >> just an interesting comment that donald trump could -- i'll let it go. >> it's interesting, the press corps, honestly, i always have my passport with me. >> i was just thinking that. mark said that the press corps may not have their passports. he means on them, not that they don't have one. >> i always have mine with me. a new monmouth poll on pennsylvania, an eight-point lead for hillary clinton over donald trump. he's also trailing among college educated white voters by ten points. he has to turn this around. >> he has a substantial lead among white males in that poll.
he has to do additional outreach in pennsylvania. the step of him going to detroit to talk to the african-american community is an important one. you'll see his opportunity to expand that base, particularly if you look at the last two elections where you had a democratic african-american on the top of the ticket and you had mitt romney and john mccain who underperformed in that particular demographic. i think donald trump has an opportunity to perform than either of those two past republican presidential candidates, and that will play out in pennsylvania, particularly in philadelphia. >> how so the opportunity to perform? >> i think what he's talking about specifically is, look, every city wants to have safety. if you look at baltimore, who just passed their 200th murder victim today. if you look at the last four years or five years in the cities of chicago where more people have died on the streets of chicago than have in afghanistan from 2001 to 2015, you have to make sure our cities are safe. the primary job is to make sure the american public is safe.
saying police reform -- i think when the police work with the communities, they bring victims -- they bring killers to justice and we saw this week with dwyane wade's cousin. the police worked with the community and they found the perpetrator of the horrific crime of the poor woman walking down the street. >> and there are other victims. with all due respect to dwyane wade's cousin, there were other victims. so this is one issue that they're counting on. i don't know if it's a big enough issue to win over as many voters as they want to win over in the trump campaign. you did this with mitt romney. what's your advice? can this be done? >> it can be done. they have to frame security broadly. it can't be about criminal justice issues narrowly. it's got to be about security and safety in the united states, in our communities. they have to figure out a way to personalize it. i think that's something traditionally that republicans have not done. >> is it right they appear to be personalizing it now as an african-american issue? >> that to me -- that's not the approach i would necessarily
take. i think that the basic point they're trying to make is that progressive policies have failed communities of color, which is a fine point to make. but when it starts to veer into these other angles, it's also problematic. >> it's also not true. i keep referencing this because it's something that's close to my heart. i keep thinking about flint where you have a democratic mayor, who was continuing to plead with the republican governor for help for relief for the citizens of flint. i think we have republican governors and mayors all over this country. their policies are failing communities, as well. you have to begin to look at root causes of these issues and it's one that donald trump is particularly allergic to because he use it in exactly the opposite way. that is racism and oppression in this country. we can continue to deny that it exists but it's a fact it is at the root of wage disparities, in corporate board rooms, its at the top of the fortune 500
companies, the fact that we're invisible or missing, tech diversity. minimum wage, you can go down the list. it exists everywhere. >> i think most people in the country who don't deal in politics would think that this issue, the issue of safety, the issue of race is a bipartisan issue that everyone needs to deal with but probably a smart political angle to take if you're trying to win an election. our confidence continues on the other side of this break. we'll be right back.
live pictures from everett, washington, where donald trump is about to hold a rally. rudy giuliani, up there, is up next. jeff sessions is going to speak, the alabama junior senator, and donald trump should take the stage, according to our recording, phil mattingly, he's running a bit behind. so with that said, the late breaking news is that donald trump may meet with mexico's president tomorrow. of course, he's delivering that speech on immigration and may do it from mexico.
and donald trump will speak soon in everett. we'll leave that little picture up for you. can we talk about debate, angela. he's supposedly the man who co-authored "the art of the deal" with donald trump. they're meeting with him to find donald trump's soft spot. this is going to be a debate none other for hillary clinton. >> absolutely. she's a seasoned debater, one that we know through the 2008 election, who was handing barack obama his hat. she's formidable. the problem is she's never defeated five people in one and that's donald trump. i'm serious. that guy goes on so many tangents, you can't keep up. my recommendation to the campaign would be little literally let five people play donald trump. >> i've had to deal with this with the surrogates. i'm joking. what do you want to see from hillary clinton? >> there was a moment at the
convention where she during her nomination speech was talking about donald trump saying he knew more than the generals and no, donald, you don't. and it was this epic moment for hillary clinton because she loosened up and she just kind of gave it to the american people real. i think she needs to have a lot of those moments and that need to be the underlying theme. no, donald, you don't. you're not fit, you're not qualified. you don't know more than the generals. your basic talking points change every day. i don't think she needs to belittle him but she needs to make it clear -- >> she needs to walk a fine line. so does he. he was up there with mostly men. here's what i hear, i want to direct this to you, that he needs to be more presidential and pull back. they would like her to be, as the kids say, more swag and to own sbha -- own what she has
instead of making apologies for it. >> she has to be more conversational. he has to be more presidential. i think that's the challenge. we can make all of these assumptions about what's going to happen in this debate and this is going to be one of the most unpredictable things we've seen. for trump, the imperative is clear. he has to demonstrate i think some understanding of public policy and the channels that mace america. and he's got to understand the clinton record. he can't go chasing conspiracy theories. he needs to prosecute her on the facts. otherwise, he loses the credibility. >> but debates are about little moments sometimes, unscripted that you can't predict. >> they're about body language. very much so. when a voter is watching that screen, they're listening, but they're really watching. if you go back through all the debates, hillary clinton is very good at turning to her opponent and staring at them straight on. it's something that i don't think donald trump likes himself.
having said that, donald trump does the same thing. donald trump likes to turn and stare directly at his opponent. >> he's also quick. it's like the first george bush looking at his watch or sign or saying i wouldn't belittle my opponent, i'm paraphrasing, ronald reagan, i don't want to exploit my opponent's youth and inexperience. you prepped him for the debates. the primary is different than the general. we're hearing he doesn't look traditional debate, mock debate. >> i don't know what traditional mock debate looks like, if that means standing behind the podium for two hours and debating a person who is not your opponent. that didn't work for the 16 others in the republican primary field. but donald trump is also engaging and witty and he understands the importance of that one liner.
if it's little marco or lying ted when he branded these individuals during the campaign and brought these issues up during the debates, i think what you'll see is donald trump being prepared to put hillary on the defensive on her record with the clinton foundation, as well as her record as secretary of state. >> stand by. we're awaiting donald trump in everett, washington tonight. he's going to talk about, hopefully, he's going to go to mexico tomorrow to talk about building the wall and his plans for immigration in this country. we'll be right back. courtyard, the official hotel of the nfl, and i got together to remind you that no one's the same without the game... like @sirloinking who writes, "just came home with $85 worth of groceries with names like, goats beard, pawpaw and that vile weed kale. what happened?" well, a lack of football is what happened. breathe. soon, you'll be enjoying a big 'ol brat at a tailgate and kale smoothies will be but a memory. next time you order kale, try using a silent "k".

following breaking news, there is donald trump about to take to the podium, giving a campaign rally in everett, washington. and it is confirmed now from donald trump's official twitter feed, i have accepted the invitation of president enrique pena nieto. and look very much forward to meeting him tomorrow. donald trump traveling to mexico to meet with the president of mexico tomorrow. expected to give his speech on immigration from mexico.
so there is donald trump speaking in everett, washington, sorry, to meet with him, not to give a speech from there but meeting with him. but let's listen to -- well, he's going to take a bit. i have my panel here with me. corey, what's he going to say? >> he's going to talk about four important things tonight. number one, he's going to reiterate the need to build a wall. it's going to be a physical barrier. that's what he's going to discuss when he goes to arizona tomorrow. number two, he's going to talk about the e-verification system, there's no question about that. he's going to talk about ending sanctuary cities, and four, he's going to deport the felons back to their countries. these are the basic parameters of his immigration plans. >> i just think it's important on the felons point because it continues to come up. >> i've got to get to him now, he's speaking. here is donald trump. >> thank you.
>> i want to thank, if i could, right now they have over 8,000 people trying to get in. we set the record for attendance tonight so i just want to thank you so much. [ applause ] so they're going to be pouring in as we speak, unless you'd like me to come back in a half an hour and we'll start. no? all right. i want to thank susan hutchinson who is in the audience someplace. susan, she's done a great job. brian danzel. brian is over there someplace. i want to thank don benton, senator benton. he's been amazing. he said you should come here. we'll fill that place up so fast, he was right. so i want to thank don. and doug eriksson, senator doug
ericsson so i want to thank all of them. amazing, they've done an amazing job. we are going to work very hard over the next 70 days and we're going to win the state and we're going to win the white house. we are going to take back the white house. you know a republican would never come to the state of washington and you know on television they said i wonder why he's going to the state of washington? because you know what? republicans don't win it but we're going to win it. that's why i'm here. that's why i'm here. [ applause ] and this love affair began about three months ago when i came up here and we had record crowds,
two events, massive, massive crowds. i said why don't the republicans win that state? i think we're going to win washington state. so that's the story. that's why i'm here. that's why i'm here. i don't know if you saw it but poll numbers came in today that are phenomenal. we're leading in florida, we're leading in north carolina. we're leading on a national basis. los angeles times, we're two or three points up. we're doing really well, folks. it's all coming together. when you see crowds like this, people fully understand why. i will tell you. thank you. so we are going to have a great victory for the people, people. remember. for the people.
it's going to be a victory for every citizen whose voice has not been heard and that's a lot of people. it will be a win for the voters, not the pundits, not the journalists. [ crowd booing ] not the lobbyists, not the global special interests that take care of these politicians and get whatever they want and they're the ones that are funding my opponent's campaign. millions and millions and millions of dollars and they have total control over crooked hillary clinton, believe me. total control. this is going to be your victory, it's going to be your victory, it's going to be your victory. [ applause ]
we're going to create the new american future our children so desperately deserve. in this new future, millions of workers on the sidelines will be returned to the workforce. they've been taken out of the -- they are going to return and they're going to return quickly, believe me. crumbling roads and bridges and airports will be replaced with the infrastructure our country needs and deserves, our infrastructure is going to hell. frankly, i hate to say it, our country is going to hell and we're not going to let it happen.
families trapped in welfare will be provided with jobs and opportunity. government will become lean and mean, except -- except it will have a big fat beautiful heart. we will have an effective government, a responsible and honest government for a change. our border will be protected. our children will be safe. people don't talk about the inner cities but i'm talking about the inner cities. they don't talk about the inner cities. the democrats have taken advantage of african-americans. they take their vote, they win the election and then they say
see you in four years, thanks a lot. not me. we will rebuild our inner cities and provide safety and peace to all of our citizens. american values in culture will be cherished and celebrated once again. but to achieve this future we must break free from the bitter failures of the past of which there have been many and reject the same insiders telling us the same old lies. because they're lies. and i know these people well, believe me. one area where honesty is badly needed is on the subject of economic and living conditions for african-american citizens in the united states.
millions of african-americans in this country have succeeded greatly and their contributions to every area of our life and they have done so much. and now throughout history we should celebrate and cherish that success. but, but, this includes tremendous, tremendous and amazing achievements in arts, science sports, music, business, et cetera. it includes millions of african-american entrepreneurs, innovators and the millions of african-american workers in our middle class. but, but we must also talk about those who have been left behind. the millions suffering in disastrous conditions, in so many of our inner cities and neighborhoods afflicted by total
poverty, drugs and horrible, horrible violence that we watch every single night, every single night you turn on the news and you see the violence and it's horrible. no group in america has been more harmed by hillary clinton's policies and the policies of democrats who have run our inner cities for literally 50, 70, 80, 90, even 100 years. nobody has been hurt more than african-americans. there is no better evidence of the fact that hillary clinton's immigration policy, which brings in illegal immigrants -- well, is that a true statement. it brings in illegal immigrants and refugees to take jobs from
our hard working african-american and hispanic citizens and they want those jobs. instead of providing free health care and jobs to millions of refugees from around the world that we have no idea even where they come from, we should rebuild our inner cities and provide jobs to struggling americans that have been struggling for years and years. [ cheers and applause ] thank you. tonight, i'm asking for the vote of every african-american and hispanic citizen in this country who wants to see a better future, who wants to see real positive change. the inner cities of our country
have produced only poverty, joblessness, failing schools, broken homes, and rising crime, and it's only getting worse. they don't care about you. remember that. they don't care about you. they want your vote, and they don't care. they've used you for decades and decades and decades, and they will continue to use you. nearly four in ten african-american children live in poverty. think of that. four in ten are living in poverty. this includes 45% of children under the age of six. 58% of african-american youth are not working. meanwhile, another 2 million hispanic americans have been added to the ranks of those in poverty since 2009. not a long time ago. in detroit, half of all its
residents do not work. half. in milwaukee, where i just left, almost four in ten african-american men between the ages of 24 and 54 do not have a job. here in the state of washington, 65% of latino children and 60% of african-american children live in low income households. chicago just had the most violent month in 20 years. more than 2800 people have been shot in chicago since just the beginning of the year. you look at war torn countries are safer than living in our inner cities by a lot. it's not even close. it breaks everybody's heart.
we cannot let this violence continue. we can't let it happen. it will and it must be ended. under a trump administration, it will indeed end. it will be my priority to work with communities, local police, state police, and federal law enforcement to dismantle the gangs and to liberate our citizens from violence and poverty and fear. i will appoint the best judges and prosecutors and federal investigators who will make this their personal mission, and so
many people want to do that. there is one thing which can no longer be denied. if you keep voting for the same people, you will keep getting the same horrible results. remember that. and hillary clinton has been doing this stuff for 35 years and nothing's happened. just remember, nothing's happened. to those suffering, i say, what do you have to lose by voting for donald trump? i will fix it. i will fix it. i will fight for you as no one
ever has before. they don't fight for you. they don't fight for you. let me also tell you what you have to gain. jobs, opportunity, security, safety, great education, and many other things. many, many other things. [ cheers and applause ] thank you. this means very much and just so much to me. i believe every child in this country, in detroit, in baltimore, in chicago, has the right to live out their lives in safety and in peace. in the "wall street journal" today, heather mcdonald of manhattan and the manhattan
institute just wrote an important article about the soaring crime, and it is soaring like you've never seen before in our inner cities, and the responsibility of democratic politicians for creating this horrible problem. big article, highly, highly respected person. the article is called "black lives matter to donald trump." true. true. she writes that mr. trump's call to restore law and order recognizes the right of inner city residents to enjoy the same freedom from fear that the rest of america now really takes for granted. freedom from violence is one of the greatest civil rights of our time. so, too, is the issue of school
choice. what a difference it will make. what a difference it will make. we will fight for the right of parents to send their kids to the school that they believe gives their kids the best shot at success. i will not accept, and neither will you, a future in which children -- and think of this -- children of color, any color, in this country are not fully included in the american dream. our whole country loses when we leave millions of talented, aspiring americans on the sideline, which is happening all of the time. we want to give everyone a chance to contribute their full
talents to our economy and to the greatness of our country. remember, and most people don't know this, the republican party is the -- right? you know what i'm going to say. right? the republican party is the party of abraham lincoln. not bad. not bad. it's also the party of freedom, equality, and opportunity. people have forgotten it so long now. it is the democratic party that is the party of slavery, the party of jim crow, and the party of opposition. by the way, is there any place better to be than a trump rally?
right? anything. [ crowd chanting ] nothing makes me more honored and proud than to be the nominee of abraham lincoln's republican party, and we're going to do a job. our party will fight to bring hope to every forgotten stretch of this country. once again, we will be one american nation, one american nation. we will be one united people,
and we will have one really great future again. believe me. and a great future will be built on these three critical words. jobs, jobs, jobs. this will include a complete revitalization of our manufacturing sector, which has been absolutely so badly hurt by hillary clinton's policies, so badly hurt. devastated. we're bringing jobs back to our country. we're not going to let people take our jobs anymore. we're not going to let our jobs go to other countries anymore. there will be retribution.
there will be a price to pay. we are going to renegotiate the horrible nafta trade deal, probably the worst deal ever made in terms of trade. >> it is the top of the hour. you're watching "cnn tonight," and we're listening to donald trump giving a campaign speech in everett, washington. also on the heels of finding out that he's going to be meeting with the mexican president tomorrow, giving his immigration speech here in arizona tomorrow. again, donald trump speaking, making an appeal to african-americans specifically right now. let's listen in.
