listen. ♪ ♪ yes, that's a washboard he is playing. that does it for us tonight. and "cnn tonight" with don lemon starts now. >> announcer: this is cnn breaking news. breaking news tonight -- donald trump speaks at a fund raiser just outside boston. this is cnn tonight. i'm don lemon. supporters of the $10 billion man, greeted by this sign. the $100 a plate, striped bass, lobster, clams, and listening to the cover band fortune. but the main event, donald trump himself. >> you look at trade pacts, china eating our lunch. japan like we are children.
6:01 pm
mexico both in trade and at the border, what they're doing to us is terrible. i have great respect for china. for japan. i love the people. i love the people of mexico. i love hispanics. nobody, nobody loves hispanics like i do. i probably have more than almost anybody working for me. they come in, they buy apartments they give me a fortune. i love them. i love them. we're the one that takes, we take the lead on everything. we take -- >> he said we're the suckers. who said that. who said that? >> very good. smart guy. i probably went to school with him. smart. he shouts out "we're the suckers." hey, we want ukraine to come through. we think it's great. but why isn't germany. who has a mercedes-benz right now? raise your hand. rich. look. they're making a fortune. they're a very, very great
6:02 pm
nation. they're a money machine. we get nothing. they say, go in and take care of ukraine. okay, fine. the other day, we were in iowa. where we are leading in the polls. and we had in a room that never had this many. we had 4,000 people. they went wild. they're great people. then we went to new hampshire, where by the way the poll just came out. 35%. can you believe, 35? 35. and you know we have some low energy people. they're really low. i'm not going to say jeb is low energy. but he is pretty low. who would you rather have negotiate with iran trump or jeb? how about this -- trump or hillary?
6:03 pm
get out there. vote. give the good polls. you must vote. you must vote. we are going to do something special. i love you. thank you very much. make america great again! make america great again! thank you. thank you. >> so that is a day in trump. cnn's m.j. lee live for us at the trump event. hello, m.j. there has been dispute whether this was a fund raiser or not. here's what trump said about that. listen and we'll talk. >> this is not a fund raiser tonight. so you understand. we are, i guess they're paying for some of the basics in terms. we have food. i guess, 1,5002,,000 people. this is not a fund raiser. we are not doing anything in terms of fund-raising. >> what about the check paysable to you? >> many people are coming in.
6:04 pm
they can pay whatever they want. i think they're doing something to offset the cost of food for 2,000 people. this is not a fund raiser. >> how is your money situation for the campaign? >> it's going great. i'm turning down millions of dollars for the campaign. millions. everybody is offering me money. i don't want it. i am turning down millions of dollars. and no interest. no interest. >> so, m.j., what can you tell us? fund raiser? no fund raiser? >> well, don there seems to be a lot of confusion as to whether or not this was a fund raiser. trump got here the first question he was asked, so what is it? is it or is it not a fund raiser? we were entering the event. there were sign that said, the $100 per head fee should be made out to the trump campaign. certainly looked like a fund raiser to us. as you heard, trump making it very clear that it is not a fund raiser. in his opinion. that the expenses will actually get covered by the money that the campaign has taken in. but that he is not beholden to big donors.
6:05 pm
that has obviously been the big appeal that people have found in trump. he is so wealthy. he can fund his own campaign. he doesn't have to answer to donor, special interests or lobbyists. >> m.j., i understand you were able to speak with donald trump after his remarks. what can you tell me about that? >> while this was a crazy, fun, come lo colorful, event. there was a sobering meeting trump had with family members of victims killed by illegal immigran immigrants. met with them a few minutes before getting into his car. the victims were upset about their stories. wanted to tell trump he had their support. this is because immigration and fighting illegal immigration is very important to these family members. we were able to ask mr. trump about this. very briefly before he got in the car. take a listen to what he said.
6:06 pm
>> they're incredible people who have been devastated by the crime of, the crime wave of the illegal immigrants. these are incredible people. and i will tell you what, the lives that have been lost, they deserve a very, very important fact. what's happened, to these people, is a shame. these are great, great feel. it is not, we are not going to allow it to continue. there is a crime wave like nobody has ever seen before. we are not going to let it continue. thank you. thank you, everybody. >> immigration a central part of trump's candidacy. and i was actually able to speak to family members after their meeting. they told us that, they were very moved by the way that trump has talked about this issue. and they really feel like he could bring some sense of justice to the fact that the family members that were killed, never got what they deserved. that, you know they feel their stories have not been told. and certainly not covered by the media in their opinion. they feel that trump is giving them a voice. >> mj, i have to ask you.
6:07 pm
quite a scene there. you can't get the feeling overall on television. but being there what was the reaction like to his remarks? >> this was quite the festive event. a lot of champagne flowing. a lot of good food. you can still hear the band playing behind me. a lot of enthusiasm in crowd here tonight. not everyone i speoke to were trump supporters. the folks undecided just love the fact that the 2016 campaign cycle has gotten this boost of energy. i spoke to one man who said, you know he probably wouldn't have even watched the first republican debate had it not been for the fact that thee wanted to see what kind of performance donald trump would give. a lot of excitement. almost got trampled trying to get a question into trump. everyone is very excited. >> be safe. be safe. he has a big entourage. lots of security. stay safe. thank you, m.j. lee. appreciate it. nice night in norwood, massachusetts. want to bring in the man hosting tonight's trump bash, ernie bach
6:08 pm
jr., a legend. ceo of a billion dollar car dealership business. played in a rick band. famous for throwing a big summer bash every year. this year's event is the biggest ever. you know all because of donald trump. ernie bach jr. joins me now. hello, sir. how are you? >> i'm great. great. having a good time here in massachusetts. >> looks like a beautiful night. nice, big, beautiful tent. donald trump seemed to have a great time at your event. how do you think it went? >> say that again. >> he seemed to have a great time at the event. how do you think it went? >> he had an excellent time at this event. i think it went great. he thought it went great. and it is actually going great right now. >> so he said, you know there has been, you know, confusion about whether it was a fund raiser or not. he saying it was possibly to offset the cost of food and drink what have you. was it a fund raiser? >> okay. here -- here is the deal.
6:09 pm
it started out as a fund raiser. it started out as, a much smaller event. and then, as i got closer to the campaign, and i got closer to his campaign manager, it evolved and became more. i would say it is not a fund raiser now. because -- what people paid to get in will not even cover the cost of what is happening here. and he is funding the campaign himself. and he really doesn't want the money. and it was a great event. >> how much then. how did people pay? where does the money go? >> they paid $100. it will go to his campaign. and he will pay it back for the cost of the event. >> all right. >> sound like a fund raiser. but anyway. you know? how did this tee vent coevent c.
6:10 pm
you only recently met donald trump, is that correct? >> yes, this fund raiser came. i was watching tv one night. and i had seen, i was watching tv one night. i saw the news. i had seen the, the clip of donald trump. i changed channels. and donald trump was on the next channel. and i changed channels again. and i saw donald trump all over the place. i said to myself, i live in massachusetts, the republicans basically do a fly-by, they don't even kid massachusetts. very rarely does a republican win massachusetts i think the last one was ronald reagan. i said to myself why don't i bring this guy to massachusetts, bring together some people, and listen to him. up close and personal. suss him out and see if he is for real. one thing led to another. what i thought was going to be about a 150 people turned over to, almost 2,000 people. >> so, listen, do you feel that
6:11 pm
some sort of, you say you just saw him on television, right? was there some sort of kinship that you felt? did you think he was saying the right thing? or just because you saw him on every channel. explain that to me. >> well i am a business guy. i have been a fan of donald trump's since the '80s. i mean what business guy isn't a fan of donald trump? stow, it real stow -- so to get a person that is in the news all the time, and is running for president, why not bring him to a place that most of the, most of the people write off. so i think bringing him to massachusetts is a -- was a great thing. and people were impressed with him. my girlfriend was saying that, that sunhe wasn't really, was o the fence with him. after seeing him. wow, i could change my mind. >> so the people are there, are they all fans? were there people who were on the fence like your girlfriend?
6:12 pm
>> no, absolutely not. no, no, no. this is not a republican, rah-rah thing. there are many, many democrats here. probably 50/50. that's, i'm not a political guy. i'm socially liberal. and i'm fiscally conservative. i'm a capitalist with a conscience. i, i believe that the right guy should be there no matter what party he is from. >> so you said it was democrats. the kind of people showing up. all wealthy people. $100 a plate. that money doesn't come so easily to everyone. >> not all wealthy people. no. right. that watch the point that the campaign made to me. they said listen we don't want to chargesome crazy all. money. why don't you charge $100. we will not, people won't, won't come for lack of having enough money to come. you said they are going to reimburse you. whatever money. you don't thing it will be
6:13 pm
enough to cover the cost of the event, right? >> no. >> hang on. hang on. let me explain. so the campaign gets the money. and then they give the money back to you to cover whatever costs? >> yes. >> okay. >> you say it is not going to be enough to cover the cost, correct? >> well, i don't know, we'll see. probably not. >> how much do you think was taken in? >> i don't know. i don't know. do the math. do the math. >> how many people showed up? >> about between 1,000 and 2,000. >> okay. that's a lot of money. >> not everybody paid. there were a lot of people. there were a lot of people that didn't pay. there were guests of mine. >> so it wasn't mandatory then to pay for the event? >> no, it was not manned tdator
6:14 pm
pay for the event. >> thank you, sir. thank you for coming on cnn. thank you very much, mr. boch. >> thank you. thank you. >> donald trump supporters clamoring for chances to give money to the $10 billion man. is he changing his mind? the killer storm that could be taking aim at south florida. we have the latest for you. ♪"once there was a hushpuppy" by dan romer and ben zeitlin ♪ is man kind? are we good? go see. go look through their windows so you can understand their views. go find out just how kind the hes and shes of this mankind are.

breaking news. event near boston for the donald trump presidential campaign. trump not calling it a fund raiser. launched his campaign saying he funded with his own fortune. didn't want anybody else's money. is that changing? joining me, political analyst, bob beckel, columnist for "usa today." so good to see you on television. i miss you on the tube. >> you know, don. i miss you too. now we are back, reunited together. a very important day for america. >> let's just talk about this for a second. how many people predicted the demise of donald trump in the last six, seven months. he is still around as far as i can tell. and it is a phenomenon in politicize have not seen since ross perot. amazing. >> you know, you are right. i always say if anybody is running for president, for office. i always take them seriously. always taken donald trump
6:19 pm
seriously. i think people have underestimated him. did you watch the interview earlier, the fund raiser to night? what did you think? >> i watched it. i was just stunned. look the -- trump is getting money. forget this thing for a second. who ever that dude that sells cars. the fact of the matter its that trump is getting money from blue-collar workers who send him checks for $250. why? who is donald trump. it's not who he is, it's who he isn't. not what he is for, what he is against. that is everything washington is doing. and he defies gravity in politics. because there is this group of people in the republican party who are so tired of the republican establishment. trump has gotten into that. like perot did. like george wallace in the 60s and 70s when he split up the democratic party. trump is going to be around a while >> don't you think this is different? look at how much money he has.
6:20 pm
all you have to do is look at the amount of media time. the guy is relentless. like the everready bunny. always on television, radio, wherever. he is all over. >> it gets a little scary. i start to dream about trump at night. you know, there is this website called medite. a lot of us follow. every story is about donald trump. but, let's give him credit here. this guy is a brand maker. that's what he has done. he know house to sell a brand. done his own brand very well. still here. he is still ahead. >> basketball, lob, let's talk issues and more about donald trump. use the occasion to night to talk about jeb bush. listen. >> i would say jeb bush is a frequent target because when this whole thing started i thought he was going to be the primary competition. but he has drifted very much to the middle of the pack. and rapidly disappearing. so we are going to have to start looking at somebody else. >> is he right, bob? is jeb bush legitimate or no
6:21 pm
longer legitimate competition. >> he will be. he raised a lot of men knoney. name factor that matters. he wants bush out of the way before florida. trump thinks florida is a delegates for him. here's what is going to happen. the republicans have so many peoplen this field. four of them probably will emerge from new hampshire. the rest will want to stay in. they always do. until their treasurer shows up and says you are $10 million in the hole. then go home. there will be four coming out. then you worry south carolina. then the big one. which is florida. it could be, both bush and rubio are alive going into florida. which ever of the two win the state. the other is out. it will be over by super tuesday or little bit after that. >> you don't think donald trump can take it all the way to the nomination? >> i don't know. don. i don't buy into what all these conventional wisdom people say. that he can't diet. he keeps doing it.
6:22 pm
>> i think he can. >> i give you credit for saying that. it remind me of what's his name, teflon don in new york. not, you know, not suggesting anything. but, give trump, start giving him his dues politically. he understands he has a base of supporters out there that nobody else can touch. >> yeah. i have been saying. he also understands media very well. >> exactly. >> as a manager. he understands how to deal with people. if you are just looking at jorge ramos, you weren't called yet. a lot of people would have been taken aback. he was quick. look you weren't called yet. wait your turn. and some people are taken aback by those things. but he is very sharp when it comes to dealing with the media. >> how many politicians -- how many politicians get away with saying what donald trump says? and survive. he can. and he just sort of takes it. rolls off his back. keeps going. but then again itf you have $1. billion in your campaign.
6:23 pm
a lot of fuel for your jet. >> we talked about the republican side. talked about jeb. he talked hillary clinton yesterday. listen. >> i don't wear a toupee. it's my hair. i swear. come here. come. is it mine? look. >> it is. >> it is. >> say it, please. >> yes, i believe it is. >> thank you. >> i do kind of know what donald is going through. and if anyone wonders if mine is real. here's the answer. the hair is real. the color isn't. and, come to thing of it. i wonder if that's true for donald too. >> okay. okay. got a little confused there. they were joking abut the hair. but he is also taking on hillary clinton as well. >> sure. look, she has been a punching bag now for a lot of years. and one of the things people better be careful about hillary clinton.
6:24 pm
she is not a dynamic campaigner. made a terrible mistake when she ran against barack obama. didn't organize in caucus states. beat him in primary states. he whooped her in the caucus states. all the stuff they talk her e-mails and the rest of it. she has taken more ritz than, you know, than sumter took in the civil war. i've don't, the people who say she is in real trouble. i don't buy that. she has got a lot of money. a strategy. strategy she is going to cup peat compete in caucuses. a fire wall, super tuesday. 11 states. money to run and campaign in the states. i can tell you having been involved in managing a presidential campaign, watching seven others or being in them. this as it but money whuch. who can stay alive. >> can joe biden do that if he decides to get in? >> i think don, it would be very difficult. lot of the democratic
6:25 pm
fundraisers picked up now. big ones. ones you can bundle a lot of money. i just don't think joe is going to do that. i worked on his first campaign. he was 29 when he within the senate. i dent thion't think he want to. did this twice. lost twice. >> you don't think? >> i don't. >> who do you think end of the day who is going to be the top, battle it out on the republican side. top, three, four. >> i would say, coming out of new hampshire, iowa, new hampshire, i would say it will probably be rubio, bush, trump and walker. and then, the nice thing about that it won't have lindsay graham in the pack. they go to south carolina where nobody can get any headway everybody committed themselves off to lindsay graham. that dog is not going to hunt too long. that's what i would say there. and democratic side. two people are going to come out of new hampshire. and, right now, my guess would
6:26 pm
be, hillary clinton and sanders. front-runners have not been able to run wire to wire in first place. they stumble. stuc people like my guy, mondale. stumbled. came back. got the nomination. bill clinton, same thing. for the two, trump and hillary to run wire to wire they're going to have a problem. some where they're going to trip. >> basketball beckel, thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure. my pleasure. nice to be with you, don. >> good to be with you as well. >> want to take a trip to massachusetts. >> why don't we go to colorado? okay. if you say so, bob. happy friday. thank you for joining us. >> you too, buddy. >> isn't searly. when we come back, you will hear more from donald trump's event. bob beckel, everyone. she'll log in with her smile. he'll have his very own personal assistant. and this guy won't just surf the web. he'll touch it.

6:31 pm
for rick wilson. republican strategist. wonder what he is going to say tonight. that's where we will start with mr. wilson. >> whatever happens here can't be as much fun as your segment with bob beckel. saying that for the record. >> you know, it's basketball. i have people texting me, and e-mailing. bob! i want to get your reaction to the donald trump fund raiser tonight and what you just heard. is trump going to steamroll everybody you think until they give up? >> listen. there may be a few people who flake out. some of the lower tier. already doomed to collapse anyway. that's the organic process of the campaigns. i love this fund raiser tonight that isn't a fund raiser maybe it is. not a fund raiser they're just transferring their resources to donald trump. somebody right now in trump's world. >> transfer. >> modality by which to, to, real lr
6:32 pm
real l real -- re-al llocate. it is part of the trump mojo he has got so far. he doesn't seem to worry about these. petty little things like the laws, regulations, campaign finance rules. you will see the things over time. and cause him little more heartache than he expects. right now tonight, you saw a game passing the hat lick a hobo, outside the gray house station. you can't, claim people randomly giving money. when it says on the sign, trump make checks payable to the trump campaign. >> you don't look like you are smiling about any of this? >> i am smiling. what wreck sarick said is funny. it is ridiculous we have a sign telling people to give money to the donald j. trump campaign. trump people taking the sign down. the guest you had on before, made it clear they raised as
6:33 pm
much as $200,000. i think that could more than cover the cost of a dinner. >> did you see the estate. tent. champagne. a band. come on. they did say that he is going to, campaign is going to get the money. the campaign is going to pay back to reimburse for the party if they deon't raise money. >> don't think that's how it works. jamaal knows more about campaign finance law. can i rise in defense of donald trump on one point here. we rarely are allowed to actually go into the fundraisers. you rarely have the person running it come on live tv and talk about it. i think what rick said is 100% right. ridiculous denying this is a fund raiser. let's give the trump people a little credit for transparency. >> jamaal. quickly before i get to katrina. is this a fund raiser, you know. >> no, i'm sure, i'm sure it is a fund raiser. there is this rule if they gave
6:34 pm
the event and donald trump's campaign didn't pay for it, an in kind contribution which would trigger, over the cap. wouldn't be able to do it. i don't know. they're fog yeiguring that out. passing the hat for cash is not the way you raise money. it was more like a carnival than a fund raiser. music going. people drink. in front of the cameras. looked like a fun time. >> looks like a lot of fun. if i wasn't working i would love to go to be a fly on the wall. why not. katrina, whether or not this is a fund raiser. they clearly still want to preserve this idea that donald trump its not beholden to special interests. how long do you think that is going to last? does this change anything with that? >> donald trump is not somebody who needs any money to make it into the white house. he is committed to funding, self-funding his own campaign to the white house. i think that, these events, where voters want to got to know
6:35 pm
him better, are completely, being misconstrued. for instance tonight. the gentleman from massachusetts was saying he wanted the voters to get to know donald trump they wanted to know if he was for real. wanted to get to know the man behind what the media is portraying. and the events started off with 150 people. and now saying, what, 2,000. people are estimated. so it is not, the contributions were about $1. i was told a story by the campaign. some lady wanted to denate onat. people are so passionate about the trump campaign what they're finding is people want to donate $5. $7. rather than turning them down, he is allowing them to basically donate that money to a political action committee. and be part of the make america great campaign again. he doesn't need their money. he has $10 billion. what is he going to do with $5.
6:36 pm
same point. same matter. he wants people to feel part of the campaign. and americans are so passionate about him. >> the one thing about this -- let's remember. it doesn't matter. right. because the reality is these voters feel like donald trump is on their side. they don't care about the details where he stands on issues according to the rules. they think he is fighting for them. as long as they belief that. they will give him leeway. >> two things. what i want to say there is an open question about whether donald trump if he continues here can actually self-fund a primary and general election? he says he is worth $10 billion. bloomberg, says $3 billion. a dispute about that. presidential campaign in 2016 can cost you $1 billion. does donald trump have $1 billion in liquid asset he's can spend to run in the primary and general election. that is an open question. number two, on sunday night, he has a super pac called the make
6:37 pm
america great again super pac. that had a, he attended, a high dollar fund raiser, that the kushners, family members held in new york. so he is now helping super pacs and by the way the super pac is run, or at least advised by two lobbyists out of colorado. i am saying all this to point out -- trump is sort of. >> rick is clenching. >> can't take politics out of politics. from m sset himself up, businessman. doesn't get in bed with lobbyists. doesn't take money. he is realizing that isn't going to work. the first time he is having to deal with questions of whether he is a hypocrite or not on these issues. >> rick is going to tell us why he has the vapors. and we'll take to donald trump and his plan. >> hope you are not a
6:38 pm
apologize if you are. >> not at all, ever. i know i have a 798 fico score. [score alert text sound] [score alert text sound] oh. that's the sound of my interest rate going down. according to this score alert, my fico score just went up to 816. 816. 816! 816! fico scores are used in 90% of credit decisions. so get your credit swagger on. go to, become a member of experian credit tracker, and take charge of your score.

6:41 pm
donald trump leading the polls. leaving rivals scrambling to figure out what they can do to knock him down. ryan is back, jamaal, katrina, and rick wilson. let's talk about this. trump announcing his tax plan soon. he talked about it tonight. here it is. >> we will be announcing a tax plan over the next four weeks,
6:42 pm
probably sometime during the month of september. who knows taxes more than me? i know the taxes very well. i would say that probably before the end of september we will have a very comprehensive plan. and one of the things will be simplification and i believe will end up with a tax reduction which to me is very important. you know the united states, we pay the highest taxes in the world. we are going to be asking for a reduction. so i think overall it will, people are going to be very happy. i know hedge fund guys that pay almost nothing they make a fortune. i want to see lower taxes. i am going to make a determination. s on some people they're not doing their fair share. these hedge fund guys, most of them support hillary clinton and jeb bush so you understand. they're not supporting me. because i told them i dent want your money. but the hedge fund guys have to pay up. >> katrina, he says he is going to lower taxes, he want hedge fund guys to pay up the you
6:43 pm
don't hear that from a republican. you can probably see some of the hedge fund guys at the big event, in the hamptons, are going, what? you dent heon't hear that from republican? >> it shows donald trump no one is going to force him to say something he doesn't believe. as far, he is never going to be swayed by someone giving him money. he is what he is. even if you try you can't control what he says. i think we have seen that throughout the campaign. so with regard to that even if they are his buddy. he will say what he feels and do what is right for the country. whether they're friends or not. that's why so many people understand he is passionate about making america great again. that's why if they can afford to give $5. they want to give $5. they want to feel it is more symbolic. they want to feel like they're part of this movement. they did their part to make america great again. whether he accepts money or not. ened of the day, donald trump is somebody that is never going to pay attention to what somebody else tells hem to do.
6:44 pm

6:48 pm
so easy. it will be great. >> ryan, you say, we all said he is good. that was a direct question about guns. immediately pivots right back to immigration? >> so i think like we, for a second we have got to put aside the fact that it is really fun to cover donald trump. he says a lot of outrageous thing thousands. and we all, we all are amused by it. take a step back an reamilize w are experiencing in america something we haven't seen in a long time. in europe you have a lot of far right parties. that are frankly okay with bashing if grants. with scapegoating people who dent lo don't look like the majority. we really haven't seen that in this country at that level in a long time. the pat buchanan, 1992, campaign was the last time we have seen anything that close. haven't seen some one who immediately asked a question starts talking about illegal immigrants, from latin america being the crime problem in this country. which the statistics don't bear
6:49 pm
out. talking about building a giant wall to block, block mexican immigration. it's something we haven't seen in a long time. it is frankly, this is a major, major problem for the republican party. it goes against everything that republican strategists have been preaching against since they loss in 2012. frankly a lot longer than that. >> i think. >> listen we, have got to run. don't underestimate his appeal. telling you here. a lot of people not necessarily republicans saying, you know what, hey. >> i like him. >> they look him. >> and i'm not disagreeing with that at all. the polls bear that out for sure, don. i am just pointing out that, he is running a candidacy that is based on resentment of nonwhite people in this country. and i think it is important to net that in the mix with the other kind off muse thing amusi. >> we'll continue to talk. rick, we'll give you a chance to talk next time. have a great weekend. everyone. >> good night.
6:50 pm
>> state of emergency in florida as a deadly tropical storm approaches. we'll have the very latest. that's next. the possibility of a flare swas almost always on my mind. thinking about what to avoid, where to go... and how to deal with my uc. to me, that was normal. until i talked to my doctor. she told me that humira helps people like me get uc under control and keep it under control when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb.
6:51 pm
tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. raise your expectations. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, control is possible. imagine - she won't have to or obsess about security. she'll log in with her smile. he'll have his very own personal assistant. and this guy won't just surf the web. he'll touch it. scribble on it. and share it. because these kids will grow up with windows 10. get started today. windows 10. a more human way to do.

. breaking news tonight, a state of emergency in florida as
6:54 pm
tropical storm erika closes in. the very latest for us at the severe weather center. this storm has already claimed a number of lives. >> yeah, we just got word, don, the death toll in dominica has risen to 20 people. they had a foot of rainfall in just a short amount of time. it caused flash flooding and landslides. we hear that entire towns are cut off from searchers. however, the storm is starting to weaken just a little bit. puerto rico, as well as the dominican republic do not have quiet the storm that is we saw. >> the governor of florida, rick scott, has declared a state of emergency, jennifer, as the storm heads in that direction. how bad is it expected to be in florida? >> well, you make a good point.
6:55 pm
you said they intensify, they weaken, they intensify. this storm has been very, very difficult to pin down with an actual track as well as intensity. the models have been all over the place. one thing they're agreeing on would be the rainfall. it is now heading over haiti and we are expecteding anywhere from 2-6 inches of rain in that area. however, we are going to see ice lated amounts, even higher. it's a very mountainous terrain. so we're going to see the possibility of flooding as well as landslides in that area as well. it is going to weaken over this mountainous terrain. right now, the storm has weakened to about 45 miles per hour with gusts of about 65. moving to the west of 25 miles per hour. the entire state is in the cone of uncertainty and has been for the last couple of days. the problem will be with this storm, which is 5:actually good
6:56 pm
news for florida, is the more land it has, the more it's going to break apart. you can see this track. over haiti and then possibly over to cuba. that is the latest forecast. in fact, with the 11:00 advisory, i wouldn't be surprised if this storm has already become a tropical depression chrks is good news. but then florida could be impacted by a tropical storm if, in fact, it does gain a little bit of open space. jennifer, thank you very much. we'll be right back. we call ourselves the freedom hikers. hiking brought us together but that's not the only thing that keeps us coming back. here's to friends who reach for better. fewer carbs, fewer calories, superior taste.
