"the new york times" reporting trump declared a loss of more than $900 million in 1995.
a move that while legal could have allowed him to avoid paying federal income taxes for 18 years. cnn has not been able to independently verify the authenticity of the documents which "the times" says were mailed to a reporter anonymously last month but the trump campaign has not challenged any of the facts in that "new york times" story. all of this as trump kicks off a day of visits in two swing states. these are live pictures from herndon, virginia, where trump will speak focused on the military and national security. from there mr. trump heads west to the start of a multiday tour beginning in the battleground state of colorado. cnn is tracking all of these developments, senior white house correspondent jim acosta is covering the trump campaign while senior washington correspondent joe johns has more on hillary clinton's trip to another critical state, ohio. jim, let's start with you. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, carol. who would have thought the october surprise would have come on october 1, but that appears
to be what happened over saturday night when we saw "the new york times" bombshell report. donald trump, we can put the tax returns back up on screen. the loss on his casino business. edded 915 million, nearly $1 billion. that is something that could have tax experts say enabled him to avoid paying taxes for some 18 years and tees up what hillary clinton was talking about at that debate. here is how the exchange went one week ago. >> the only years that anybody has ever seen were a couple o years when he had to turn them over. to get a casino license and he shows he didn't pay any federal income tax. >> that makes me smart. >> reporter: you can hear the
messagi messaging, that he's smart, newt gingrich, rudy giuliani, chris christie, all of his top surrogates are saying this makes hem a genius for avoiding paying taxes. the trump campaign has not denied the fact that he didn't pay taxes. we haven't heard that from the trump campaign. rudy giuliani and chris christie talked about this over the weekend. here is what they had to say. >> the reality is he's a genius. what he did was he took advantage of something that could save his enterprise and he did something, he came back. the art of the deal is all about that. he talks about it. so did steve jobs. so did winston churchill. he was thrown out of politics twice and came back. great men have big failures and then they take the failures and they turn them to great results. i'd rather have a genius like donald trump running this country than someone like
hillary clinton and you produce jobs for the fbi. >> reporter: donald trump put out a tweet and didn't get into whether or not that i know our complex tax laws better than anyone and the only one who can fix them. failing "new york times" or wrong "new york times." he doesn't seem to be challenginging the authenticity of that report, carol. today of all days it will be a very interesting day to talk to trump supporters. even though he has not been paying for nearly two deck it aids if what is true and what tax experts tell us.
>> jim acosta reporting live. with this billion dollar loss the very people trump says he wants to help he hurt in atlantic city. >> small business people to build his casinos. they built bathroom partitions and got pennies on the dollar for their work. here is the jenkins family. >> he put so many good contract ortsors out of business. >> he put a list out and said these are bad guys and everybody else is a good guy. >> i think i spent over a million dollars in litigation. i would have been happier if he left me to do my business.
it was sport and to me it was my life. >> trump claims they did not do a good job. here to discuss all of this director of the center for politi politics, mark matthews, washington correspondent for the denver post, a political science professor and our chief business correspondent. so i want to start with you. purely from a business standpoint donald trump says he's a great businessman. but he lost almost a billion dollars and that wasn't his first. >> it was so big that the tax preparer told "the new york times" he had to go in there and type in the first two numbers to fit it in there because the tax software didn't even recognize that big of a loss. what was happening?
atlantic city was imploding. he made an ill-timed foray into an airline. the ownership of the plaza. a lot big that was happening on him. the fact that he lost so much money if that is what happened, it is perfectly legal but one of the ironies is that the fairness, the break the tax code gave him is not a break that he gave many of the people at the time and that's something that a lot of people noted today. >> these contractors that we just heard from, right, they say donald trump stiffed them and didn't pay them and he claimed they were doing such a bad job they refused to pay him. >> if we could see those tax returns we would know more. we've only seen three pages. that's why the public wants to see those returns and people want to see what was going on there because of these accusations against him at the
time. he has focused on and came up out of that big loss and use d failure as a launching pad. he was living so lavishly and outward ly for many years and maybe not paying income taxes, they build roads, schools. many people criticized barack obama, the president. >> i'm sorry, these contractors i bet pay their income taxes after what happened to them in atlantic city. >> you heard them saying he's a genius and he did it to his own benefit. is he?
>> i don't think so. think about what this means. trump says he's smart because he has avoided paying federal income taxes, probably for many years. rudy giuliani, chris christie essentially called him a genius for doing that. what's the message sent to the tens of millions of americans who actually pay their fair share? it means they're chum ps. the irs on the wall, taxes are the price we pay for civilization. donald trump hasn't paid for much. >> the other thing i'm curious about, trump says, you know, i can close loopholes. i understand the rig system and only i can fix it. >> you've studied his tax plan. would it close the loophole that allowed him to legally dodge
taxes for 18 years? >> take a big loss, no. to change the real estate special treatment for developers, no. >> hedge fund managers would have to pay more and cut taxes for everyone and the middle class but closing that specific loophole no. ask surrogates on the air all morning long and they keep pointing to the fact he would revise the tax code in general and that would be beneficial to the economy and they go to his overall tax plan. >> jason, doesn't that prompt you to ask would donald trump really fix the rigged system at his own expense? >> exactly, carol. that is the question that i think any soft leaners or independents now are thinking about. donald trump has not paid people he was suppose d to pay. he's gone bankrupt. he's been sued thousands of times.
he's saying because i've been able to gain the system for so long i'm going to fix it. that's the guy who breaks into your house and then tells you, you should hire me for security. there's no reason he will take down the system and i think what's key about this is this. they look like the regular hard working men and women, working class whitedonald trump is supposedly championing. this is a legitimate problem. >> so i go to you, mark. they are running neck and neck. >> right now both clinton and trump need to watch themselves. this is a very volatile electorate out there. this is a state that supported bernie sanders and ted cruz so right now polls have been going
up and down. that's fallen now to single digits. and so a lot of people are wondering what's on the campaign trail in the next couple weeks could affect things. >> so what do they think? >> one of the most interesting things in the polls support for gary johnson and jill stein together sometimes is more than 20%. they are thinking about a third party candidate and that means a lot of soft support that could go either way and there's a political operative that told me
for other folks you have to be right on several issues. they could affect things. >> thanks so much. >> i'll say good-bye to you, christine romans. donald trump set to speak at an event after launching a string of attacks on hillary clinton over the weekend. her health, her marriage absolutely nothing was off limits. when i was a little kid, i made a deal with myself
that i would never grow up. we met when we were very young... i was 17, he was 18. we made the movie the book of life. we started doing animation. with the surface book, you can do all this stuff. you can actually draw on the screen. so crisp. i love it. it's almost like this super powerful computer and a tablet had the perfect baby. it's a typewriter for writing scripts... it's a sketchbook for sketches... ...it's a canvas for painting... you can't do that on a mac.

his time and money to children from northeast ohio to make their dreams possible. c cnn's joe johns has more on the importance of this endorsement. good morning. good morning, carol. the voter registration period is ending in ohio in about one week and the lebron james endorsement comes just as hillary clinton returns to ohio for the first time since her trip on labor day. so in the short term the campaign is hoping to get some help on its push to get more clinton supporters on the voting rolls right now especially millennials, african-american voters, part of the coalition that got president obama elected. what's remarkable about the james endorsement is how impassioned it is and very much in the language of the clinton campaign he writes, i d know we need a president who brings us together and keeps us unified policies and eideas that divide us. more are not the solution. we must all stand together no matter where we're from or the color of our skin. hillary clinton for her part was in north carolina on sunday speaking at an african-american
church focusing on the police use of force issues that have been in the spotlight there. listen. >> i'm a grandmother. and like every grandmother, i worry about the safety and security of my grandchildren. but my worries are not the same as black grandmothers who have different and deeper fears about the world their grandchildren face. >> while there has been good news for clinton in a number of states, ohio hasn't been great for her so far. donald trump still running strong there. carol? >> all right, joe johns repo reporting live from washington. while clinton laid out her economic plan, be a roundtable discussion. but if trump's rally was any
indication he will keep things personal, mocking hillary clinton's bout with pneumonia and accusing her of cheating on bill. >> she's supposed to fight all of these different things. and she can't make it 15 feet to her car. give me a break. give me a break. give me a break! hillary clinton's only loyalty is to her financial contributors and to herself. i don't even think she's loyal to bill, if you want to know the truth. and really, folks, really, why should she be, right? >> all right. so let's talk about this. thanks to all of you. jason, you are from the great state of ohio.
how will all of this play in oh ohio? a lot of working class people, in the cities hillary clinton is visiting today, akron and in toledo and of course will bring up lebron james. you have to believe she will bring up that tax issue. >> yeah. she is, carol. here is the thing. i'm an ohio voter and this state has become a very, very interesting place for the clinton campaign. they have been bombarding it with celebrities. i talked to a lot of my students there who work for republicans and democrats. they had lance bass doing a debate party, the entire cast of "the west wing" and now they have lebron james. for some reason hillary clinton is still behind in this state. but here's what's really interesting about this. even though she'll be campaigning there and trump is in the lead, there is a possibility this year that hillary clinton could actually still be elected president of the united states without winning ohio. if that happens, it completely changes the importance of this state going forward. this is a very, very interesting couple of weeks.
we don't know how important ohio will be to her final calculation. >> it's interesting to say that because i've been reading about that very topic and, larry, i'll pose this question to you. the reason that ohio won't go the democratic way this time is because ohio's minority population is actually shrinking, and some people say that georgia could become the new ohio and ohio could become theew georgia. >> well, one thing's for sure, carol, ohio is more republican than the nation as a whole. it was more republican in both of president obama's elections. and let's remember ohio usually has voted for the winner. john f. kennedy in 1960 and franklin roosevelt in 1944 are the exceptions. hillary clinton might be the third one. she's doing worse in ohio and especially iowa than in any other swing state. hiohio used to be considered th ultimate bellwether, to cite a book that has been written by my
associate about ohio. but ohio is not really the bellwether it used to be, so this election may prove it. >> okay. so, mark, colorado is still very much a bellwether state, right? >> it's very true. >> very true. so trump's personal attacks on hillary clinton, especially ly his attack on maybe hillary clinton cheated on bill, right, she doesn't have the stamina. trump poking fun at her bout with pneumonia. do those things play in a swing state like colorado? >> it could although colorado has a reputation for some pragmatism. it's been going back and forth. barack obama con colorado in 2008 and again in 2012, but republican cory gardner won a senate race, a close senate race in 2014. so, you know, right now a lot of what the pollsters are watching are female voters along the front range. this is down from ft. collins to
denver to colorado springs, and these voters might be watching a lot of this, and a big question, too, is what's happening to republican voters in the state? again, the colorado delegation was the one that led the revolt and led the coup against donald trump during the republican national convention. and whether these voters stayed home, whether they go for donald trump, whether or not they go for gary johnson, that's a big question. these republican female voters are going to be a key demographic coming up this fall. >> okay. so let's talk about female voters because trump's surrogate rudy giuliani came out and said something that was -- i didn't really know what he meant by that, but i'll let our viewers listen for themselves. he said something like trump was a better choice than, well, i'll let the viewers hear for themselves. here it is. >> don't you think a man who has this kind of economic genius is a lot better for the united states than a woman -- and the only thing she's ever produced d
is a lot of work for the fbi checking out her e-mails. >> so, larry, what -- i'm a woman so the first thing i thought is, like, what is he saying, that a woman can't handle the economy because she's female? i'm not sure he was quite saying that. what do you think? >> it certainly wasn't by mayor giuliani and, carol, it's just one more reason, along with a long pattern of behavior by donald trump that was detailed by the associated press over the weekend in terms of trump's dealings with women on "the apprentice." it was pretty shocking what they had in that report. this is another indication of why we apparently had headed toward are record gender gap in this presidential election. women a very disproportionately against hillary clinton and men trump. it's the women who are 52% to 53% of the electorate.
you would rather win women than men. >> ok. so, jason, what do you think trump will say today in virginia because that's another important state although hillary clinton does lead in virginia but he has to win over these female voters, these minority voters in states like virginia, like colorado, like nevada, like florida. so what can he say? >> well, he could keep saying what he's saying, carol, because there's a certain segment of women in america that find trump's bravado appealing. they say to themselves, well, that wouldn't be me, or they don't like rosie o'donnell either. donald trump is not going to change what he's saying, but i will say this and this is really important heading into the next town hall debate. all of these attacks on women, they're not going to go over well in a town hall. these attacks on bill clinton and hillary's marriage is not going to go over well in a taun howell n. a town hall people want to talk to you about how you're going to fix their
problems. if he wastes any of his time attacking hillary clinton, you will see an audible gasp and he will lose that debate. >> larry sabat o, jason johnson, many thanks. coming up, bernie sanders rips donald trump's tax bombshell. will his supporters follow suit? . gilman: go get it, marcus. go get it. ...coach gilman used his cash rewards credit card from bank of america to earn 1% cash back everywhere, every time. at places like the batting cages. ♪ [ crowd cheers ] 2% back at grocery stores and now at wholesale clubs. and 3% back on gas. which helped him give his players something extra. the cash rewards credit card from bank of america. more cash back for the things you buy most. the cash rewards credit card from bank of america. sprint? i'm hearing good things about the network. all the networks are great now. we're talking within a 1% difference in reliability of each other. and, sprint saves you 50% on most current national carrier rates. save money on your phone bill, invest it in your small business.

and good morning. i'm carol costello, thank you so much for joining me. it is mind-boggling really, donald trump loses almost a billion dollars in 1995 and then some experts say he hasn't paid income taxes in 18 years. bernie sanders lashing out over that report in "the new york times." >> so trump goes around and says, hey, i'm worth billions. i'm a successful businessman. but i don't pay any taxes. you, you make $15 an hour, you
pay the taxes not me. that is why people are angry and want real change in this country. >> trump's tax controversy's largely overshadowing leaked audio tapes of hillary clinton talking about bernie sanders' supporters. >> some are new to politics completely, children of the great recession and are living in their parents' basement. they feel they got their education and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves, and they don't see much of a future. and so if you're feeling that you're consigned to being a barista or some other job that doesn't pay a lot and doesn't have much of a ladder of opportunity attached to it, then the idea that maybe, just maybe, you could be part of a political revolution is pretty appealing. >> all right. so let's talk about that. jeffrey lord is here, cnn political commentator and we
have the former press secretary for bernie 2016, now a hillary clinton supporter. welcome to both of you. >> happy monday, carol. >> i told you, jeffrey, there's no such thing as a happy monday. >> i know. 38 days to go, carol. >> i can't wait until it's over. i know a lot of other people are with me on that. but let's talk about what happened over the weekend, jeffrey. this billion -- almost billion dollar loss by donald trump, some people saying he hasn't paid income taxes in 18 years. how does that say he's a great, successful businessman? >> carol, you know the thing that i find fascinating about this, we're learning this morning from a site called zero hedge that has lasered in on hillary clinton's much talked about tax returns that she always says how open she's ever been, and on page 17 of those tax returns for 2015 we find out that hillary clinton did exactly the same thing donald trump did.
she had a loss, a claimed loss of almost $700,000 and used it as an excuse to get down her tax bill and not pay current taxes in 2015 meaning she used exactly the same device albeit for less money that donald trump did. >> a lot of people do. a lot of people use that. >> it's the tax code. >> but in donald trump's new tax plan there's nothing in there that would close that loophole. >> right. and i think you could be right about that. >> well, he said there's a rigged system. why doesn't he fix it them? >> maybe they need it to rethink this. i personally think we should -- i think once you start getting into this kind of thing, this is why all these special interests love the tax code the way it's written because they can get some loophole, and i don't mean donald trump -- >> his tax plan doesn't fix that. >> what? i'm sorry? >> his tax plan doesn't fix that. so what -- this is what i'm getting at, jeffrey. if donald trump's tax plan doesn't fix that loophole,
what's to say once he becomes president of the united stat that he will continue paying no income taxes? >> well, carol, first of all, he pays taxes. there's no question about that or he'd be in jail. what he may have done here -- >> i'm talking about income taxes. i specified what. >> i'm sorry? >> income taxes, that's specifically what we're talking about. most americans do pay income tax. >> right. but the tax code allows for them to do this. "the new york times" didn't pay taxes in 2014. they had an operating profit of something like $29 million or whatever it was and they got out of paying their taxes according to "forbes" magazine. so, i mean, this is a problem with the tax code. this is why people are so angry about this. they don't trust the irs. they think special interests are telling congress how to write all these loopholes in. they're loopholes only if you're
wealth kri like hillary clinton or donald trump or "the new york times" can be taken advantage of. they are really upset about this kind of thing and should be. >> simone, your thoughts? i'm sure people are upset about these kinds of things. >> they're very upset. i've been alive longer than donald trump has apparently been paying income taxes so i think people are upset because this is exactly what senator sanders was talking about saying this current system is set up to benefit those at the top. meanwhile, people in the middle and at the bottom are left out and shafted. we don't know what donald trump has paid because he has not provided us with his taxes. we do know this, donald trump is clearly only interested in policies that benefit people like him which is why his tax plan doesn't include any of the things to right the system that you previously mentioned, carol. >> what about the notion, simone, jeffrey brought up. a lot of wealthy people do this. this makes them good business people because they maintain their wealth even though they may have to declare bankruptcy one or two or three or four
times. >> you know, carol, i think there's a difference between a tax loophole that saves you a couple hundred thousand and manipulating the system so you apparently don't pay income taxes for 16, 18 years. that is a real difference and a real problem and that's why we need change in the system. so i would like to see mr. trump present a tax plan that addresses this issue, but i am hopelessly optimistic even though i don't think that will ever happen. >> so, jeffrey, simone says she's hopelessly optimistic so, "a," will we see more of donald trump's tax returns and, "b," will donald trump adjust his tax plan to include the closure of this particular loophole? >> i honestly don't know about the second. as it to the first i've said repeatedly i hope he doesn't put this out. i think this is irrelevant here other than illustrating that the tax code has problems and the more rules and regulations you write, the more loopholes get written. this is the way congress
operates. hillary clinton was the you states senator. she was the operating person in the government not donald trump. >> when your own candidate doesn't plan to change that, it sort of falls on, you say, well, i guess it's a wash then. >> i really do think that this subject is going to be out there. "the new york times" brought it up and "the new york times" themselves have used these kinds of advantages for themselves. so the argument rings hollow here, but i do think there's sufficient outrage that we may get some changes. >> i just want to know if donald trump wasn't donald trump the billionaire and he was donnie from the block and had brown skin or worked a regular job he would not be able to evade the system and not pay income taxes for 18 years. so this is a position of privilege. everyday americans don't have this privilege that donald trump or "the new york times," for that matter has -- >> or hillary clinton.
>> and this is something they're going to continue to talk about. >> thanks to both of you. >> thanks, carol. >> you're welcome. they only meet face-to-face one time, pence and kaine battle on the debate stage for their candidate. who will win the night? the vice presidential debate coverage starts tomorrow 4:00 p.m. eastern here on cnn. still to come, kim kardashian robbed at gunpoint in paris. how the gunman got into her private apartment. nose." hashtag "no sleep." hashtag "mouthbreather." just put on a breathe right strip. it instantly opens your nose up to 38% more than cold medicine alo shut your mouth and say goodnight mouthbreathers. breathe right. moms know their kids need love, encouragement and milk. with 8 grams of protein, and 8 other nutrients. 9 out of 10 u.s. olympians grew up drinking milk. moms know kids grow strong when they milk life. i just wish it had been for a better reason. me, too, but the eulogy that frank's daughter gave was beautiful.

ta taking and alec baldwin took them. >> i mean, this man is clearly unfit to be commander in chief. >> wrong. >> he is a bully. >> st up. >> hetaed the birther movement. >> you did. >> he says climate change is a hoax invented by china. >> it's pronounced "jina." >> he hasn't released his tax returns which means he's either not that rich. >> wrong. >> not that charitable. >> wrong. >> or he's never paid taxes in his life. >> warmer. >> comedian and all-around funny guy, it's funny. >> i'm sorry. it's hilarious. >> he didn't even have to write a comedy sketch because alec baldwin said what donald trump said during the debate verbatim. >> what is supposed to be absurd and really all you do is reflect and that's kind of what happened to sarah palin with tina fey
where she didn't actually write these ridiculous things. much of what she said was verbatim, and that -- playing that side-by-side, to see from the debate that donald trump actually acted just like this supposed character who is an absurd representation of donald trump feels damaging, in a way, and i'm sure some people who are trump supporters feel "saturday night live" is unfair, "saturday night live" did not do a good job, but when you play them side-by-side what you see all they did was true satire. >> i thought they were nasty about hillary clinton, too. >> i thought -- and my dad and he was like a -- and he's relatable and so am i. that's very funny. and what they did they took the narrative that is surrounding hillary clinton and they stretched it out to an absurd place and made it funny and they did same thing with donald
except donald more closely reflects what they were doing, and it's hilarious, i'm sorry. >> there was another bit they did. there was a rip on the family feud and it had like the trump family and the clinton family and, well, you have to watch it. so let's watch. >> trump was the reason people get for being late. >> what an interesting and wonderful question, steve. may i ask my brothers for help? >> they're not here. >> yes, we are. >> who is this? >> i'm donald junior, the brains. >> i'm ivanka, the beauty. >> and i'm eric. >> so they're obviously ripping on that twitter thing that wept around, the trump children being the children of the corn.
you brought up something in the debate about the way some voters think about the trump children now. >> oh, yeah because what happens with the trump children when you think trump children -- what you're really thinking is ivanka. wow, they're trump children. they're so poised and graceful. that's ivanka. oh, the trump children, they're so well spoken. no, that's ivanka. and somehow ivanka has become the entire umbrella that encompasses the trump children. but when you actually separate her out, what's up with the other two? >> who are they? >> wait a minute, it's the other three because there is a fourth one that's the jan brady of the trump children that nobody ever talks about. >> oh! >> i'm sorry. >> i thought she was charming at the rnc. >> she was wonderful. i'm sorry. terrible of me to do that to jan brady. >> you know where you're going next. so the interesting thing to me is, you know, on the clinton family side there was bill clinton but you didn't really see chelsea clinton. is chelsea clinton kind of off limits for comedians?
>> it's not comedians. first of all, she's boring as -- seriously, watching spackle harden is more exciting than watching chelsea lyclinton do anything. i'm sorry. really. so, unfortunately, there's not a lot to work with there. second to that, the lyclintons d a very good job even to this day of keeping chelsea far enough on the edges that it's very hard to throw darts at her. that's why. >> so when all is said and done and as the season goes along, do you think it will make a real impact on the election? >> if the sarah palin sf atire is any indication, it invades your subconscious. it does not make a direct impact where people say i saw this sketch and, no, i'm not going to vote this way. it doesn't work like that but it does make a subtle, subconscious impact, yes. >> thanks for stopping by. it was fun. but you're in trouble later.

paris. here she is leaving her exclusive hotel. armed gunmen dressed as police officers locked her in a bathroom and got away with millions in jewelry. her husband, kanye west was performing in new york. he rushed offstage after finding out. >> i'm sorry. family emergency. i have to stop the show. >> cnn's jim bittermann live with more for you. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, carol. yes, in fact, it was quite a gathering out here in front of the apartment hotel where kim kardashian was staying. this is a really luxurious place. there's about nine apartments in this building, pretty much unknown to parisians. it's very discreet. there's no sign to indicate that anybody of any note stays there. but in fact, a number of stars have stayed there over the years and like it, i guess, because it's supposed to be a safe house in paris.
but in fact, it's not proved to be that last night when five gunmen broke into the hotel, got the concierge and convinced him to take them up to her suite, the kardashian suite, and then handcuffed the concierge and handcuffed her and put her in the bathroom while they went through her jewelry and took a ri worth $4 million and other parts of her jewelry box that were worth something around $5 million. so great deal of jewelry and great deal of loss for the kardashians. >> jim bittermann, thank you. the next hour of "cnn newsroom" after a break. d us simplify our e-commerce, we could focus on bigger issues, like our passive aggressive environment. we're not passive aggressive. hey, hey, hey, there are no bad suggestions here... no matter how lame they are. well said, ann. i've always admired how you just say what's in your head, without thinking. very brave. good point ted. you're living proof that looks aren't everything. thank you. welcome. so, fedex helped simplify our e-commerce business and this is not a passive aggressive environment. i just wanted to say, you guys are doing a great job.
