with hillary clinton home recuperating president obama campaigned on her behalf today. let's begin with our senior political correspondent brianna keilar. the president stood up for hillary clinton and came down very hard on donald trump. >> that's right, wolf. as you know voters, by a ratio of about two to one, say that both of these candidates are untrustworthy and dishonest. there is much more information available right now about hillary clinton because she spent decades as a public servant, and donald trump's refusal to release his tax returns has been unprecedented in modern history. but both of these candidates have demonstrated a penchant for hiding things. hillary clinton resting at home with pneumonia, getting an assist from obama in philadelphia where he blasted donald trump for not being transparent. >> you've got one candidate in this race who has released decades' worth of her tax returns. the other candidate is the first in decades who refuses to
release any at all. >> he also defended the clinton foundation and criticized trump's. >> one candidate's family foundation has saved countless lives around the world. the other candidate's foundation took money other people gave to his charity and then bought a six-foot-tall painting of himself. i mean, i -- you know, he -- i -- he had the taste not to go for the ten-foot version. but -- >> the trump foundation's purchase of the painting was first reported by the "washington post," which also found the charity hasn't seen a donation from trump himself since 2008. almost unheard of for a family foundation. the running mate, mike pence, insists trump has been very
generous. >> anyone who knows about donald trump and his career knows that this man has given away tens of millions of dollars to charitable causes throughout the course of his business life. he has been incredibly generous. >> but we really don't know if that's true and we may never. his campaign manager kellyanne conway asked if he'll release any information about his purported donations. >> the reason i ask -- why would you doubt it? >> because this is badgering. i don't see it as journalism. i see it as badgering. we've had this conversation so many times on so many different networks. >> while clinton has released more than three decades of tax returns and the clinton foundation has released donor information. her use of a private e-mail address and server as secretary of state has tarnished voters' opinions of her and she failed to reveal she had pneumonia until this video surfaced is raising questions about her
transparency. >> why keep it a secret? >> well, i just didn't think it was going to be that big a deal. >> her campaign initially said sunday she was dehydrated and had overheated, only to later admit she had been diagnosed with pneumonia two days before. she and her husband are trying to set her medical state straight. >> frequently -- not frequently. rarely but on more than one occasion over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing has happened to her when she just got severely dehydrated. >> i think really only twice that i can recall. you know, it is something that has occurred a few times over the course of my life, and i am aware of it. and usually can avoid it. >> trump has also put out very little health information besides a colorful letter from his doctor saying his test results were astonishingly excellent and that trump will be
the healthiest individual ever elected president. conway defending trump. >> i don't know why we need such extensive medical reporting when we all have a right to privacy. >> now, hillary clinton is promising to reveal more medical information soon, and donald trump has said he will release the results of a physical exam that he took last week, wolf. that's something that clinton has already done. though he is not promising to release any of the information about his medical history. >> thank you. donald trump is out on the campaign trail today, and he is fully on the attack after slamming hillary clinton at an iowa rally. he is now heading to pennsylvania. sara murray is on the scene for us. trump is going all out in response to hillary clinton's use of the word "deplorables." >> that's right, wolf. hillary clinton has been off the campaign trail for the last two days and donald trump is looking to capitalize on that. criticizing her at every turn for her dig at trump supporters. donald trump still having a
field day with hillary clinton's remark that half of his supporters are deplorables with intolerant views about race, sex and religion. >> while my opponent slanders you as deplorable and irredeemable, i call you hard-working american patriots who love your country and want a better future for all of our people. >> trump, adopting a double-barrelled strategy as he unloads on clinton. >> hillary clinton is running a policy-free campaign. she offers no ideas, no solutions, and only hatred and derision. whether you vote for me or whether you vote for someone else, i will be still your greatest champion. >> and rolls out some new policy of his own, calling for an expanded child care subsidy for couples earning less than half a million dollars per year as well as guaranteeing maternity leave for new mothers whose employers
don't provide it by offering six weeks of unemployment insurance benefits. clinton's campaign is arguing trump is the one with a negative view of americans releasing an ad highlighting some of trump's most controversial criticisms. >> how stupid are the people of the country? we're building a wall. he is a mexican. you got to see this guy. i don't know what i said. i don't remember! >> clinton's camp seizing on this mike pence interview with wolf as another signal the trump campaign is fostering intolerance. >> donald trump has denounced david duke repeatedly. we don't want his support and we don't want the support of people -- >> you call him a deplorable? >> no, i am not in the name-calling business, wolf. you know we better than that. >> democrats piling on after pence refused to call david duke, a former ku klux klan leader, deplorable. clinton tweeted, if you won't say the kkk is deplorable, you have no business running the country. as tim kaine argued that failing to call out bigotry only fuels it. >> if you cannot call out
bigotry, if you cannot call out racism, xenophobia, anti -- if you can't call it out and you stand back and are silent around it, you are enabling it to grow. you are enabling it to become more powerful. >> all this as duke who recence pence's response on made and in interviews. we're expecting donald trump to come here to pennsylvania tonight and explain a little bit more about his new child care policies, his new maternity leave policies. but one of the key questions is how he is going to pay for that in addition to the expansion he has called for in military spending and some of his more expensive immigration policies. campaign aides assured me earlier today that later this week donald trump would give a fuller economic address and all of these things would end up being deficit neutral. as of now they are not
explaining how that all works. >> thank you. joining us now republican congressman chris collins of new york, the first member of the u.s. congress to endorse donald trump. thanks for joining us. >> good to be with you. >> talking about the controversy out there right now, president obama went after donald trump today for his continued praise of the russian president putin. listen to the president. >> think about what's happened to the republican party. right? they used to be opposed to russia and authoritarianism and fighting for freedom and fighting for democracy. and now their nominee is out there praising a guy, saying he is a strong leader, because he invades smaller countries, jails his opponents, controls the press, and drives his economy into a long recession. >> do you believe congressen that donald trump has gone too
far in praising putin? >> no, wolf. as i said before it's pretty sad that under barack obama where isis didn't exist before he came to office is now thriving, because of his supposed red line in syria, the vacuum he left in iraq. and what donald trump is saying is we have to in the civilized world which includes china, civilized world which includes russia, we have to band together with europe and our other allies to defeat isis, the greatest threat to the civilized world. that's what he is saying. and this is because of a lack of leadership of barack obama, who just the other day said again the biggest threat to humanity is climate change. excuse me? it's not isis? it's not, you know, the economy? >> well, the question -- with respect, the question was about putin, not isis. is it appropriate -- >> they go hand in hand. >> why does it go hand in hand? if he's praising putin, who i
invaded awe kriukraine and crim would a presidential nominee praise putin? are you comfortable with that? >> to me it's in the context of working with russia to defeat isis, which is the problem created by barack obama. but i'll also say, the truth of the matter is, barack obama is not a leader. barack obama doesn't lead our allies or our foreign policy. we don't have a foreign policy. our economy is a mess. barack obama is a community activist who has shown he is not capable or competent of doing the job. he is not a leader, and he is contrasting him to someone who politically we disagree with on every front. his actions on the ukraine can never be justified. russia is our enemy in those senses, but i have to say about vladimir putin, he calls the shots in russia. everyone knows where he stands. there is something called
leadership. don't get me wrong, we don't agree with it at all, but you can't say he doesn't have a firm grip on what's going on in russia, something barack obama does not have in the united states, and we have paid a price for eight years of a lack of leadership by the most divisive president who again today is, in trying to call donald trump out on the deplorables, this is the most divisive president ever in office. >> congressman, you say you are comfortable when he says that putin is a strong leader and seems to suggest that he would emulate him maybe if he became president of the united states. he says putin is a stronger leader than the president is, president obama is. >> well, what is a leader, wolf? a leader is the person in charge, the person who sets the agenda. that's who a leader is. >> congressman, if you heard the president's speech today, he also pointed out that saddam hussein was a strong leader too and look how he ruled iraq. >> saddam hussein was a
dictator. there is a difference. what we have to come back to -- >> i want to be precise, congressman. because when you disagree with donald trump, you disagree with donald trump, you don't always just echo what he is saying. you don't believe that putin is a dictator? >> i believe he is on the borderline of being a dictator. that said, they have something called quasi-elections there. i am not somebody who could speak to that exactly. again, under the definition of a leader, even though we disagree with what he's done in many ways, he is a strong personality. he is a leader in his own way. we may disagree with most everything he does, but we also need to work with him to defeat isis. >> let's talk about donald trump's medical records. he took a physical exam, he says, last week. he'll release those results later this week, presumably. his campaign manager. kellyanne conway, said she doesn't know why extensive medical reporting is even needed in her words when we all have a
right to privacy. if you are running for president of the united states, don't the american people deserve to know as much as possible about a candidate's potential health? >> yeah. i can't disagree with that, wolf. there is a difference between things like tax returns and the like. and someone's physical health. i mean, we are expecting someone to work rigorous, you know, 16, 18-hour days, be on call twoif p 24/7. i don't think it's unreasonable to get the records which would suggest whether someone is physically fit, to use that example. i hear donald trump will release it next week and i believe hillary clinton is getting ready to release hers. i am just disappointed in hillary clinton in, once again, lying to the american public. that's the clinton family trait, after they knew she had pneumonia saying she was dehydrated. you can't believe a thing hillary clinton says, you can't believe a thing her campaign says. this was yet another example. >> she was dehydrated but she
also had pneumonia. he says he'll release his medical records from the checkup he had last week later this week. in 2008 john mccain, i think he was 70 or 71 years old. trump is 70 next month. hillary clinton will be 69 years old. mccain allowed reporters including dr. sanjay gupta, to look at eight years of medical records and interview his doctors. this week trump says he'll release the results of his physical on the dr. oz television program. is this a serious way to release the information to the american public? >> the most critical information is what is your health today. what is your health today. what's your blood pressure, cholesterol, are you taking medication for allergies. that's a fairly general checkup. we can do an ekg, things of that sort. most of us go through those. every couple of years, once a
year, every two or three years as we get a little older. what matters today is what is their health today as one or the other is getting ready to enter office. i could care less what it was five years ago. >> stand by. we have lots more to discuss. lots going on right now. lots more with congressman chris collins after a quick break. you do all this research on a perfect car, then smash it into a tree. your insurance company raises your rates. maybe you should've done more research on them. for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise your rates due to your first accident.

what's your reaction? >> well, i have not looked into it and i can't speak for donald trump. i do know donald trump is known to be a very generous person over the years. the particular details of his family foundation i don't know. i don't know at all. i do know from folks like mike pence who have said, as he's looked into things, donald trump has always been generous. and i think that's something that we should always thank the person for. the details are not as important as the thought that goes into it and what his foundation does. a big contrast between the trump foundation and the clinton foundation, that's for sure. >> here is the question. he says he is not going to release his own tax returns because he is under irs audit, but nothing is stopping him from saying, you know what, here is the amount of charitable contributions i did provide. the irs says they wouldn't have a problem with that. why not release that number?
>> i can't answer that, wolf. i don't think america cares. there is always the privacy issue. you hear that all the time. in some cases people may be providing assistance through other things, like their own companies. it's not uncommon to have somebody ask you for a donation and your company makes the donation and in fact it's your money, just coming through another vehicle. that's not uncommon at all. whether it's supporting the boy scouts or the, you know, cancer society. people are just looking for that. and who knows, maybe some of it didn't come out of his own personal pocket. but if it's coming out of his company's, one and the same. but i am not privy to any of that information. i am more focused on making america great again and the contrast of the difference between hillary clinton and donald trump when it comes to respecting america and americans. >> yeah. recent polls by the way 62% of the american public say they would like to see his tax returns. he says he'll release them after the audit is complete but there is nothing that would prevent
him from releasing specific information, the percentage of taxes, for example, that he says, charitable contributions, stuff like that. but so far he has declined to do so. congressman, thank you as usual for joining us. >> good to be with you. >> chris collins from upstate new york, buffalo. i'll speak with a hillary clinton supporter chris coons. coming up more from the campaigner in chief as president obama tries to refocus the campaign narrative by tearing into donald trump's qualifications to be president. our experts standing by. days after north korea tests a nuclear weapon the u.s. sends capable bombers on a dramatic fly-by. is that enough to give kim jong un second thoughts? stay with us here in "the situation room."

. president obama hammering donald trump this afternoon while campaigning for hillary clinton. let's get insight from our political experts. brianna. president obama came out swinging today. will it make a difference? >> he took on donald trump. particularly on transparency, not releasing his tax returns, a number of things. it can't hurt, certainly, because he has a near record-high approval rating right now, which is good for hillary clinton. the question is how much can enthusiasm for president obama be translated to hillary clinton. when you look at the obama coalition, she has been courting, she is not doing as well, particularly with latinos and millennials. the clinton campaign says she polls okay with millennials but
are they motivated to get to the polls? that's where president obama comes in. he's trying to create interest there. >> can she, david chalian, recreate the obama coalition that got him elected president twice? >> that's their entire theory of the case. that is how the clinton campaign believes they can create a victory. brianna is right. the transferrins of the energy is not something that happens just like that. he is out there working it, but his name is not on the ballot. he is popular with these groups. we should note when we say hillary clinton is not doing well with some of these groups. compared to trump she is doing phenomenal well. she is underfoipoiming where bak obama was. his campaign was able to alter the shape of the electorate in certain key states so that young people made up a larger share of the electorate in virginia in 2008 than they had in previous elections. that's the kind of thing about
awakening the obama coalition. it's not just getting them out. it's getting them out in larger numbers so that the electorate looks more beneficial to hillary clinton. >> mark preston, the president of the united states went out on a a solo campaign trip in pennsylvania today. that's a state that is almost always democratic in a presidential contest. did he go there because they're worried about pennsylvania? >> well, a couple of things. if you look at the map of pennsylvania, wolf, it's a sea of red except for two geographic areas. one philadelphia and the suburbs as well as pittsburgh out west. barack obama going there, huge urban populations which is what gives democrats the victories. and they've won since george h.w. bush took the state back '88. if you look at barack obama on the campaign trail, not only can he do well with these urban centers that we have seen in philadelphia, but when they put him back on the trail, he could help in a state such as georgia,
north carolina, ohio. even though we talk about ohio being the rust belt, she do have a large african-american population in many cities. states like michigan as well. i did speak to a white house advisor who told me today that you probably won't see barack obama on the campaign trail the rest of the month because of the unga and barack obama who has been out of the country on his foreign travels. but come october he is going to pick up the pace again, and he is, as david and brianna said, is going to be a huge help to hillary clinton. >> it will be curious to see to which states they send him to campaign for hillary clinton. jackie, the nature of this election, two months to go, policy is an important issue but transparency is becoming another critically important issue. how is it playing out? >> i feel like policy was left on the platform long ago. transparency in terms of trust has become a huge problem in this election. it's not actually that hard to believe that at the end of the
day we could have a president that is not seen as trustworthy, the trust numbers are upside-down as well as their likability numbers being upside-down. i don't know when the last time that happened but that's the choice the voters have right now. they don't like either of these people. >> hillary clinton's campaign has a new ad, brianna, going after trump's remarks referring to what she had said about the basket of deplorables. let me play you a clip from the ad. >> you can't lead this nation if you have such a low opinion for its citizens. how stupid are the people of the country? we're building a wall. he is a mexican. you got to see this guy. ah, i don't know what i said. i don't remember! you are living in poverty. your schools are no good. you have no jobs. what the hell do you have to lose? >> so their point in putting out an ad like this in key battle ground states is? >> that he has said things about
voters as well. right? that's the point. the problem is, this is just a race to the bottom on this issue. i mean, hillary clinton should never have said that half of donald trump's supporters are deplorable. right? that was a huge mistake that she made. i am not sure how this is going to play out in the polls. we'll know soon enough. but donald trump has a major liability himself, you know, when it comes -- who hasn't he insulted in a way that's -- the list is very long. muslim-americans, mexican-americans, women. a disabled reporter, a war hero, arguably african-americans. he has a huge liability here. the question is which one, i guess, is worse. what he has said or for the slice of the electorate that they're really fighting for right now, what hillary clinton said about the basket of deplorables. >> she originally said half of his supporters are part of the basket of deplorables. within a few hours she tried to
fix it and she said, sorry, she used the word half. >> she regretted the word half saying that was wrong and then went on in the same statement to do exactly what the ad says, which is engaging in the notion that donald trump has said, from the clinton point of view, a lot of deplorable things and took on lots of groups of people. that was the heart of her speech in reno when she was going after the alt-right. as well as pulling on questioning republicans who haven't completely warmed to trump. >> which was a speech that was effective because of the people she was highlighting. she never should have in one sentence have said deplorable and not named specifically the people she was talking about. more to come. donald trump says he'll release the results of his physical exam later this week, maybe on the dr. oz program. we have new information. stay with us.

experience the thrill of the lexus is f sport. because the ultimate expression of power, is control. this is the pursuit of perfection. while president obama was campaigning for hillary clinton this afternoon in philadelphia. both donald trump and mike pence kept up the drum beat of criticism over clinton's use of the word deplorables kwf"deplor describe some of trump's supporters. david chalian. yesterday when mike pence was sitting right over there, he clearly said he wants to denounce donald trump, doesn't want the support -- excuse me.
denounce david duke. wants to denounce david duke, doesn't want the supporters of david duke to support donald trump. but he refused to use the word "deplorable," which is the word that hillary clinton came out with. her basket of deplorables. you said he didn't want to use the word because it was a hillary clinton word. >> i think he said that for himself today up on capitol hill when he was visiting with republicans there and asked about this. the campaign, as you can tell now, it has been two solid days out on the campaign trail for donald trump hitting this message. this is their -- they see that hillary clinton has handed them a weapon in this campaign battle right now and they plan to use it every single day against her. so what they don't want to do is muddy that by owning the word "deplorable." obviously they disavowed him. they say they don't want his support. he is also coming into criticism. the clinton campaign is playing it up that he refuses to liabab
david duke, a clearly deplorable person, as deplorable. it's a strategy to not muddy up their line of attack. >> he initially didn't denounce david duke. he pretended to not know who he was. >> he did know who he was because he had certainly known at least from 2000 when he said i am not doing the reform party nomination because of david duke. just putting that out there. >> precisely. >> the whole idea of charitable contributions on the part of donald trump. president obama went after him today in his speech in philadelphia. democrats on the house judiciary committee want to hold hearings on trump's donations to florida attorney general pam bondi. they want to press trump into releasing information about his charitable contributions. will they succeed? >> they're trying to get them to stick with voters.
the idea that house democrats will be able to have hearings over this, ta wonit won't happe. they don't have the power. they're in the minority. we have talked about how trustworthiness is hillary clinton's biggest achilles' heel. as we close into the campaign's final days, donald trump, i think this will turn out to be an achilles' heel for him as well. the idea he says he cannot release the tax because he is under audit we know is false. he could certainly release some information. we'll see what kind of information he releases from his medical record as well, wolf. will it be as detailed as we want it? probably not. i think we can, you know, forecast that ahead. he is also going on the dr. oz show, a reality television show in many ways, to do so. while we do criticize hillary clinton or at least talk about her weakness in honest and trustworthiness, i do think that donald trump is dealing with the same issue as well. >> you know -- you've been
looking into the whole notion. he had his physical, donald trump, last week. said he'll release the results later this week, now we are learning he'll do it as mark just said on the dr. oz program. >> that's right. and you know, i guess the question is how are voters going to receive this. well, a lot of people watch the show, so they might receive it very well. but just judging by what dr. oz said in an interview about talking about donald trump about this, perhaps they should not. because he actually said, you know, i called the studio the doctor's office and he said i'm not going to ask him questions he doesn't want to have answered. this isn't the same as being interviewed by a doctor who also wears the hat of journalist. he also wears the hat of entertainer and has made it clear he won't ask questions that donald trump doesn't want to answer. >> this reminds me of the tax return playbook. initially he said i'm going to release my tax returns. they're big and beautiful and great. then he said i am under audit.
i don't think i'm going to do it. now he says once i am done being audited i'll release them. this is kind of the same as the medical records. he says he'll release them and now he says he'll release part of them. now his campaign manager, kellyanne conway, talks about privacy. unless you're talking about your family and kids, privacy is canceled. >> you want to be president, you have to answer the questions. that's the history. stand by. word of an alarming new development right now involving north korea. the north korean threat against the united states. will today's show of force cause kim jong un to back down, or will it provoke him?
after weeks of north korean provocations, the u.s. military today said that an unambiguous message to north korea's kim jong-un. this comes just as we're learning about yet another north korean threat. >> we are as the united states displays its fire power to the north koreans, a strong signal from the regime channeled through a japanese official that the real target of kim's nuclear program, the enemy those bombs are designed to deploy against is the united states. tonight, america is not backing down. a pentagon official telling us they're prepared to use everything at their disposal to counter his threat clung a bomber that can deploy a nuclear weapon. >> some of the america's most
fearsome war maenls. tonight, sending a message to north korea. nuclear capable b-1 bombers make low flying runs just below the dmz. a top commander said the maneuver just days away from the test of the most powerful nuclear bomb ever, a full range of the u.s.' military might. >> the b-1 has incredible closure time. it is extremely fast and it has a large capacity for munitions. so you can hang inside that thing and underneath this b-1. a whole range of kin attic capabilities. >> the north koreans take notice in the flyovers. >> the north koreans with devastated. that's why they built miles of tunnels. . so of the military capability is hidden underground. they're scared to death of u.s. bombing. >> still, they say they see no
