4:00 pm
a retired u.s. military personnel, barbara star at the pentagon, thanks very much. a very strong report. >> that's it for me. thanks very much for watching. i'm wolf blitzer in "the situation room." thanks for watching. erin burnett "out front" starts right now. "out front" next, the breaking news. donald trump speaking live right now. new poll showing the race almost in a dead heat. hillary clinton insisting he release his tax returns insisting he has something to right and fox news suing roger ailes for $20 million. that same roger ailes now advising donald trump. let's go "out front." good evening. i'm erin burnett. out front now, the breaking news. donald trump speaking right now in a major rally in the crucial swing state of north carolina.
4:01 pm
the two candidates going head to head today. trump speaking right now on national security and hitting hillary clinton over who would make a better commander in chief. trump says clinton would be no match for vladimir putin. >> putin looks at her and he laughs, okay? he laughs. putin, putin looks at hillary clinton and he smiles. boy, would he like to see her. that would be easy. >> clinton losing no time firing back questioning trump's judgment on the war against isis. >> he says he has a secret plan to defeat isis, but the secret is he has no plan. >> and in what might be the most surprising comment of the day, senator lindsay graham. now, remember, he's the guy who once compared voting for trump to getting shot and that was maybe one of the nicer things he had to say. here is what he just said a couple of moments ago. >> trump is getting better.
4:02 pm
>> what makes you say that? >> just the polling, and you can see more disciplined message. if he can hold it together for another eight weeks she's had massive political body blows that would knock anybody else out, and if he can cross the line in the eyes of the public. >> that's a stunning thing coming from lindsay graham and here's the hell of a race. donald trump and hillary clinton is a virtual tie in our new national poll here at cnn. 45, 43, trump slightly on top in the margin and sara murray at the trump rally in greenville, north carolina. sara, trump is really trying to chip away at clinton's strong suit today. national security, going right for it where you are. >> reporter: absolutely. donald trump and his advisers believe she has weakenses that they can expose in this arena. he was in virginia earlier today when he lobbed some attacks
4:03 pm
earlier. we are expecting him to keep that up tonight here in north carolina. >> reporter: in his final sprint the presidential race is coming down toa i dead heat and quickly turning into a political dogfight. >> hillary likes to play tough with russia. putin looks at her and he laughs. >> he says he has a secret plan to defeat isis, but the secret is he has no plan. >> reporter: today donald trump is looking to bolster his national security credential. >> we have problems, folks. we have to figure it out, and if we don't figure it out we have to be careful and vigilant and strong. >> while clinton laughs at trump. >> we'll have we have to work with our adversers not cozy up to them. >> it shows him trailing clinton by five points on the commander in chief test. >> trump with michael flynn as he slammed clinton's leadership abilities and called for closer ties with russia. >> wouldn't it be nice if we actually got along with russia.
4:04 pm
we have to get along with certain nations very importantly because it would be awfully good to have russia and others with us on major attacks on isis. >> the trump campaign also rolling out a roster of 88 retired military leaders who say they're backing the bombastic billionaire, but not without some reservations. >> i think they are working in the right direction, and again, i'm here because some of his people on his campaign reached out to me. so, yes, you're not doing it perfectly, but you're getting there. >> that as clinton tries to make the case that trump is too big a risk to take with america's national security. >> this november the american people have a big chase to make when it comes to national security. on the one hand we have donald trump who has called the american military a disaster. who disrespects our military leaders by saying, and i quote, i know more about isis than the generals do.
4:05 pm
>>. >> reporter: donald trump has been going after hillary clinton on immigration policy so far tonight here in north carolina. we are also expecting him to attack her on another issue when it comes to national security and that's from the private e-mail server and she jeopardized national security by using that ask it disqualifies her from the presidency. >> sara, as we monitor that, i want to go to john king in front of washington. the polls are pretty stunning here. as we said, people were talking about a possible slandslide for clinton and the polls looked bad and now you have a statistical dead heat and now he's on top. >> donald trump was bragging about this number in a new poll and it's the new poll that shows trump on top. 45-43. inside the trump campaign his own pollsters are telling them their numbers show clinton narrowly ahead. their numbers show her narrowly ahead and there is this poll
4:06 pm
that will help him raise money and give him bragging rights and 45-43 and we'll see his other polls come out and see if they're in the lead. no question there is a tightening in this race and that hillary clinton has lost herr post-convention glow. right after the convention among registered voters she's up three points and no question the glow is coming off and one of the reasons, one of the issues and i could list several. after her convention she was tied after months of being behind him on the question of who can better handle the economy and now trump has a 15-point lead among registered voters. we were talking about hillary clinton's e-mail and the clinton foundation. which candidate is more honest and trustworthy. which candidate is more honest and trustworthy. after the convention trump had an eight-point lead. no question, the character question is about e-mails and fund-raising and hurting hillary clinton. >> which is a pretty stunning gap as you point now, 15 points. you can look at that poll and
4:07 pm
say that would be how the popular vote goes as we have now seen in this country, it doesn't really matter, right? it's the state by state and what do you see there? >> we need to see if the state by state polls show anything like the new national poll. right now by cnn projections if the elections were today,i ieer. >> we have hillary clinton winning as of now and it takes 270 with the states that are dark blue, solid democrat and light-blue winning democrat and donald trump needs to change this map and let's watch in the next few week, but it's by no means out of reach and donald trump is only down by a few points in florida. 29 electoral votes and he's down a couple of points in north carolina and he's only down a couple of points in ohio. say for the sake of argument there is this trump momentum starting out, and we'll see if it exists and if he can get north carolina, ohio and he's in play and still needs to change something and plan a for trump and try to change pennsylvania. that would do it.
4:08 pm
those four states and plan b for trump, erin. he was in virginia. if that stays blue, try to get virginia and there was a five-point clinton lead in iowa. at the moment, you have to go back to this map and it's advantage clinton. make it work. at the moment, advantage clinton and there is no question, the race is tightening and let's see between that debate. >> thank you very much, john king. >> out front now, founder of the pro-clinton super pac, and senior writer at the wall street journal. corinne st. pierre for and alex burn, national political reporter at "the new york times." david brock, let me start with you. this is the first national poll in a long time that has put trump on top, short a statistical margin we don't know if others will follow and this is not something that you thought would happen again. here we are. he's back on top.
4:09 pm
worried? >> no. you never want your candidate to be behind in a poll, but let's remember a couple of things. this race was tight in july, pre-convention. what really matters is the national average of these polls, of these national polls and she's five point ahead there. she she's, head in the average in virtually every swing state and this weighs noncollege-educated whites and that could be wrong and hillary has said she's going to campaign as an underdog whether she's ahead or not. that's what she's doing and the more people see of her and the more they like it and the more they'll press her and she'll win the case. >> trust has not been going in that direction. and kayleigh, this is the beginning of a big momentum. just last week cnn reported that cnn's poll of polls and the average of polls showed that he made up half the grounding of hillary clinton and that was confirmed by our independent polling today and he's ahead by two and it's worth mentioning he
4:10 pm
made up 11 points in four weeks. he's leading 20 points among independents and that's something romney won by five points and married women, 17 points and it is not good for hillary clinton. this trend is definitively going. >> we always hear the women -- it's just, forget about it for donald trump. when you look at married women, more than half of married women, 53% support donald trump and that is an environment where most of the coverage is donald trump and women. why isn't she winning women across the board? >> this is one poll. we are just getting into the last two months of this election. for me, i would rather have the conversation of, like, let's see when he wins latino votes or black vote which is is not going to happen, but look, what she's doing is she's putting together a democratic coalition that helped obama win in 2008 and obama win in 2012 and he can string along his republican coalation that romney lost by
4:11 pm
4%, you know, in 2012. that's the key. you have to put together the coalition that helps you get to the win. >> joe, are you going to do better here among women? is that a focus? i would imagine the trump campaign is pretty shocked about being ahead with married women. >> we're leading heavily amongst married women and i think it's worth noting that trump is doing better with women than hillary clinton is doing with men and that's something we never, ever hear from the mead why. trump is absolutely killing it with enthusiasm. i think he has a 15-point lead among enthusiastic voters. these are people that don't live in a bubble and they see what happens what's happening with hillary clinton and they're being disgusted and turned off and terrorism and the economy and foreign policy is a big drop there. clinton is ahead of trump by 16 poin points. 16 point ahead and we see him in virginia and north carolina. why is he spending so much time on foreign policy?
4:12 pm
>> well, that's where he needs to address his campaign. he has the general with him today. when i was traveling with him last week he had senator sessions talking to him about foreign policy and national security so he's trying to go there, and i talked to someone from the clinton campaign and they just went up. with ads in georgia and arizona exactly on the point of foreign policy and national security. they're going after the women, the suburban moms because they believe that's the one area they can attract some women because they're worried about donald trump's, you know, his character, his ability to stay focused and what she's always complaining about. do you want his hand on the -- the military leader with trump, and of course, this comes after you had bipartisan groups coming out and saying that they'd never vote for trump, and indictments, but now he's got 88. is that going to help him?
4:13 pm
i think there's no question that that's the direction that he needs to move. they like some of the things that he says they can't imagein him as the president of the united states and the thing that popped to me in your poll was trump was as high as 45% and there were people that were skeptical that he was ahead of clinton at this point as john mentioned in his report and up to this point, he's been stuck in the high 30s and 40% seemed like a ceiling. >> if he seems credible enough to get into the low to mid-40s suddenly you're looking at a much closer race. >> and the incredible nature of lindsay graham. all staying with me. we're watching trump at this major rally in north carolina speaking right now. hillary clinton is call for example trump to release his tax returns and she says his taxes have a story americans must know. plus trump saying the federal reserve tried to protect president obama. did he go too far. i'm going to ask my guest

4:16 pm
hey, ready foyeah. big meeting? >>uh, hello!? a meeting? it's a big one. too bad. we are double booked: diarrhea and abdominal pain. why don't you start without me? oh. yeah. if you're living with frequent, unpredictable diarrhea and abdominal pain, you may have irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea, or ibs-d. a condition that can be really frustrating. talk to your doctor about viberzi, a different way to treat ibs-d. viberzi is a prescription medication you take every day that helps proactively manage both diarrhea and abdominal pain at the same time. so you stay ahead of your symptoms. viberzi can cause new or worsening abdominal pain. do not take viberzi if you have or may have had: pancreas or severe liver problems, problems with alcohol abuse, long-lasting or severe constipation, or a blockage of your bowel or gallbladder. if you are taking viberzi, you should not take medicines that cause constipation.
4:17 pm
the most common side effects of viberzi include constipation, nausea, and abdominal pain. stay ahead of ibs-d... with viberzi. >> tonight, hillary clinton hammering donald trump over his tax returns promising she will not quit until he releases them. >> he said that the american people don't care about his tax returns, and in fact, he's also said that it's none of our business. i just think he's dead wrong. he clearly has something to hide. >> so is he dead wrong or is his bet on the american people dead-on? joe johns is "out front". >> reporter: hillary clinton fielding questions from the press for a second day in a row. >> i had so much fun yesterday, i did want to do this again. adventures on the plane.
4:18 pm
>> traveling aboard her campaign plane. hillary clinton calling out donald trump for not releasing the tax returns. >> the scams, the frauds and the questionable relationships, the business activities that have stiffed workers, refused to pay small businesses, so, clearly, his tax returns tell a story that the american people deserve and need to know. >> clinton is targeting trump on the airwaves, highlighting the gop's nominee's past comments about veterans in a new ad. >> i think i've made great sacrifices, built great structures and had tremendous success. >> those are sack ri feeses? >> clinton is facing questions when it comes to her honesty, a amid the fallout while secretary of state. today she dismissed calls from republicans to launch an investigation as to whether she tried to impede congress'
4:19 pm
initial probe into her e-mail server by deleting archives of her messages. >> i believe i've created so many jobs in the sort of conspiracy theory machine factory because, honestly, they never quit. they keep coming back. >> reporter: that as a new cnn/orc poll shows 50% of likely voters see trump as the more honest and trustworthy candidate while 35% choose clinton. vice president joe biden tells cnn's jeff zeleny that clinton should let voters know how she really feels. >> my advice to hillary always is just open up. let them see your heart more because she has the heart. >>. >> reporter: and speaking of high-profile democrat surrogates, more evidence that we're beginning to see a pickup in the tempo here on the campaign trail both first lady michelle obama and massachusetts senator elizabeth warren expected to hit the campaign trail for hillary clinton in the coming days. >> joe john, thank you very
4:20 pm
much. my panel back with me. kayleigh, let me start with you. 63 days left and hillary clinton said every one of those days she will come out and pound the table on the taxes. that's something that will get a lot of notice. it's not just going to be shows like us who care about tax returns and it's the story. does he care? >> think hillary clinton making a transparency argument after friday we find out that she was required by law. >> trump's not required by law to release his taxes and instead her aides used hammers to smash the devices. instead she was under subpoena to turn over benghazi, mails and instead of turning them over one of her aides used a process called bleach fit to bleach them from cyberspace and out of eternity and for her to make a transparency argument, it falls on deaf ears and looks a bit hypocritical. >> david? >> the reason this jihad has been waged against the clinton foundation is because the clinton foundation is
4:21 pm
transparent and releases old donors. i'd like the same transparency from donald trump on the tax returns and it's not just about his net worth and financial issues and it goes back to the national security issue in the last segment. who are his foreign investors when he is cose we putin, we need to know that before we can trust him with our national security. we can't vote without this information. >> how can you say they've turned over their foreign donors when today a story breaks that they didn't abide by new york laws. >> they were fully transparent and on the e-mail issue the fbi, you may not like the results of the fbi investigation, but it's been -- >> you just changed the subject from the clinton foundation to e-mails. >> and so did you from the tax returns. >> 80% of voters say they were bothered by how she handled the e-mails and they're bothed by him not releasing tax returns. >> certainly, a much more overwhelming one when it comes to the e-mails.
4:22 pm
>> and there's much more overwhelming evidence about the drip, drip, drip of the e-mails. this has been going on a year. the tax return issue has been going on, as well, so they both face problems with public disclosure so we have that. however, the tax return is one thing she's been consistent on. she has been according to the trump campaign completely inconsistent until she fessed up. believe me, donald trump is planning at the first debate to say that i can't recall 39 times and no spouse or child would expect that kind of answer. trump said today on the stump that she is saying that i had 14 cell phones or 13 cell phones in four years and no other person does such a thing and doesn't know where all of them went. >> they're not all located. >> the trump campaign plans to
4:23 pm
nail this issue. >> do people think the fbi didn't do a good job in this investigation? they did a good job. they closed the case and i understand the critics who don't accept the results. we've been doing this with hillary clinton for 25 years. there is still an abiding faith that there's some kind of silver bullet here and every time they try to find it they move the goalpost, they're still looking so now we've got another congressional hearing coming up next week. this is all partisan and remember, republican leader told us long ago when we made up the word untrustable and unfortunately, you're seeing the results of that. >> on this front, there is a development on the medical records. >> dump has come out and he said if you put out yours, i'll put out mine. here he is on abc. >> i might do that. in fact, now that you ask, i think i will do that. >> you will? >> so what he was saying why not go first?
4:24 pm
in other words, i'm not going to wait for her. >> how much pressure to put those medical records out? >> here's the thing he says things he's going to do and he just doesn't do it. >> he actually said i was going to release my personal taxes and he never did. >> fair point. >> until he actually does it then we can have a conversation. it's just, he hasn't proven to be an honest broke or this one. >> will he do it, joe? >> i'll take him at his word and it puts hillary in an awkward position and it's not just hillary. when people of this network, dick cheney had a heart attack, they called on him to release his medical records -- >> which he never did. >> in 2008 when it was vice president biden and both men were around the same age as secretary clinton is right now, people demanded their medical records. so i don't think this is so foreign. this is not about specifically hillary clinton and there's some reason why she might not do it and i'm not going to speculate.
4:25 pm
i'm not a doctor, and it's a valid question. >> i don't think it puts any particular question on hillary clinton, which frankly, i would love to see. i think they should both release binders and binders full of information about their medical history, but i'm not going to be able to -- i think it would be a terrific read. look, i do think that in some ways the narrow focus on the tax returns as such misses the larger point that the democrats are trying to make with the tax issue that they're not going to just be saying every day release your taxes. they're going to be doing a version of what harry reid did with mitt romney saying maybe he had ties to insert offensive group here and putting it on trump to deny that. i don't know if that's an entirely fair tactic. we found out after the fact in 2012 that harry reid was made up and made up. but the idea that trump has gotten away with that because of
4:26 pm
the e-mail issue. i don't think we've seen the rest of the argument play out. >> now there are big questions when it comes to the finances of trump to pay to play. he settles a sexual harassment suit against roger ailes. did trump donate to a florida politician for what would be a major favor? we have investigation into the payment and the timing and the date and all of that next. hmmmmmm..... hmmmmm...

4:30 pm
donald trump speaking right now in greenville, north carolina, tonight's rally coming as the clinton campaign raises new questions about whether donald trump paid to play. >> he made a political contribution to the attorney general of florida who at the time had her office investigating trump university. and mysteriously the investigation vanished. >> so, our drew griffin has been looking into this donation and here's his report out front. >> it is my great honor to introduce to you -- >> florida's attorney general
4:31 pm
pam bondi is a huge supporter of donald trump. >> the next president of the united states of america donald trump. >> reporter: bondi is also the florida attorney general whose office decided not to pursue a case against donald trump, and the decision was made almost exactly at the same time trump made a $25,000 donation to pam bondi's political pac. >> i've known pam bondi for years. i have a lot of respect for her. i never spoke to her about that at all. >> trump on his plane this weekend denies any connection. pam bondi also forcefully denies any connection calling it bullying by the clinton campaign. >> i will not be collateral damage in a presidential campaign nor will i be a woman bullied by hillary clinton. >> so what did happen? here are the facts. pam bondi took office in 2011. trump university was already out of business. prior to her taking office, florida's attorney general's
4:32 pm
office received 20 complaints about trump institute, a business affiliated with trump, but it, too, was out of business. since pam bondi took office up until the decision was made, florida received just one complaint against trump university. according to a spokesman for florida's attorney general, it wasn't enough to justify florida filing suit. instead, staff doing due diligence reviewed the complaints and the new york litigation and made the proper determination that the new york litigation would provide relief to aggrieved consumers nationwide. in other words, floridians could join new york's lawsuit. the spokesman told cnn pam bondi had nothing to do with it. the decision was made by staff. the fact the spokesman says pam bondi didn't even know there were complaints against trump. but around the same time the florida attorney general's office was deciding to not pursue a case against trump, pam bondi was pursuing donald trump
4:33 pm
himself for a political donation. it was aept september 2013. he donated $25,000 to the committee. did one follow the other? pam bondi, again today on fox business news says no. >> of course, i asked donald trump for a contribution. that's not what this is about. she was saying he was under investigation by my office at the time, and i knew about it. none of which is true. >> erin, several other states also decided not to the pursue cases against trump university even though they did have complaints on file. in this story where timing is everything, at the time this decision was made in florida, the attorney general's office, as i said, had one complaint against trump university and the school itself had been shut down for nearly three years. erin? >> all right, dru, thank you very much. so obviously, there are a lot of
4:34 pm
questions here, joe. so when people look at this from the surface level they look and they say, okay, there is a big question as to whether she and donald trump talked about done eggs and he said yes, she says no. someone is not giving an accurate rendition and this comes in at $25,000 and then they decide not to pursue this case. >> this is the clinton campaign, you know, grasping at straws to try to paint him as a pay to play person just like he is. if people are looking at a conspiracy theory. that said, she is one of the majority of attorneys general in the states that had gotten complaints about trump university. she is not one. she is one of many who declined to prosecute and open up a lawsuit against trump university. if i file a lawsuit against hillary clinton and guess what? the only attorney general in the entire country that is prosecuting a case and on the
4:35 pm
state, this is grasping at straws and it's convenient when we talk about today when you see a downward entire will that you presented on even indicates there was any quid pro quo. when there is -- >> there was a check and she declined to go forward. >> here's the problem, he spent an entire cycle bragging about how he pays off politicians. this is what he did for his whole, entire 14 months, right? i know how the system works. they call. i give them money and two or three years down the road i have access. so when you say those things and this comes up, how could you -- it's not a clinton thing. this is what trump did. he put it out there. >> so let me play because you just said he said that. he said it and you are right again and again and again with great pride. here he is. >> i give to everybody.
4:36 pm
when they call i give and you what? when i need something from them, two years later, three years later, i call them and they are for me. i have to give to them. when i call, they kiss my ass. >> he's exposing the system. that's the way washington works. he's exposing the system. >> he's admitting what he himself does. >> this was not the case with attorney general bondi and it's very important to point that out and here's what donald trump does. i am so happy the bondi story came up, actually, because when he found out there was impropriety with the foundation giving to what was not a non-profit. you know what he did? he reported himself to the irs. you what he did? he paid $25,000 to remedy the wrong. contrast that with hillary clinton when there are allegations against her foundation, she denies that and she doesn't disclose donors not in compliance with new york state laws and hillary clinton hides the truth and donald trump remedies something when he finds
4:37 pm
out it was wrong. >> we know it was illegal and we know it was fined. this isn't something somebody made up. one of my groups filed the irs com paint. >> he self-reported and paid. >> secondly, this is exactly what he accuses of clintons of. it's prima facie evidence. it looks like a criminal bribe. there was apparently a quid pro quo. let's get to the bottom of it. >> where was the quid pro quo? where was it? >> he makes a donation, she doesn't investigation. >> you said it was. >> that's the exchange. >> that is committing a massive fraud and paying off -- >> she changed her position. >> so let's talk because -- >> that's not the only one and there are other contributions to other states attorneys general. >> she said they discussed this contribution beforehand. whether someone forgot or is lying, i don't know. i think his spokeswoman came out today and said he may have
4:38 pm
discussed it with her, that they've been friends for a long time so that's unclear at the moment and they both agreed that they never discussed trump university. as a reporter i tried to talk to both sides on this issue today. clearly, he violated the law and everything that he is saying about the clinton foundation is all about the appearance of impropriety. the trump campaign on the other hand says this is one tiny violation. what you have with the clinton foundation is a systematic pattern of impropriety and pay to play which will point out every day here on out. >> we'll see. >> on either side. >> david, we've proven quid pro quo on clinton's side. the only evidence we have is the prince of bahrain wanted a meeting with clinton and they said don't go through these channels. >> we'll hit pause next. fox news paying out $20 million in a sexual harassment suit. should trump cut ties with the
4:39 pm

tonight, $20 million. that is the massive sum fox is going to pay former anchor gretchen carlson who accused her former boss roger ailes for sexual harassment. still no word from the ousted fox news ceo. he's now actually advising donald trump. brian todd is out front. >> the lawsuit that exploded at fox news channel tonight brings a game-changing settlement. 21st century fox agrees to pay former anchor gretchen carlson $20 million and in an extraordinary statement, fox apologizes for the alleged sexual harassment carlson said she suffered from former fox news chief roger ailes. quote, we sincerely regret and apologize for the fact that gretchen was not treated with

the respect that she and all our colleagues deserve. >> companies like fox do not pay $20 million settlements when there's no there there. the murdoches who own fox are convinced ailes was harassing women in his office at fox news. >> reporter: ailes was ousted after more than 20 women reportedly spoke with an investigating law firm about his alleged advances toward them. he denies the allegation. >> it's very sad because he's a very good person. >> ailes is now advising donald trump as he prepares for the debates. >> i do cherish women. i love women! >> but trump has serious problems attracting women voters, a cnn poll shows him trailing by double digits among women. it's partially due to comments like this about a debate challenge from fox news anchor megyn kelly. >> you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes -- blood coming out of her -- wherever. >> reporter: democrats call ailes' involvement a slap in the face to women voters. >> the idea that now he has a sexual harasser as his top media

adviser, it will disgust a lot of women and really, frankly, confirm what people already think about him. >> trump has a pattern of insulting female candidates like this shot on abc at hillary clinton. >> i don't think she has a presidential look, and you need a presidential look. you have to get the job done. >> the trump campaign denies that ailes is raising them formally or informally and analysts say trump could benefit from the man who helped get richard nixon elected. >> whatever else she may say about roger ailes he was a maestro when it came to television. i'm not sure you can point to anybody in the republican party who is a better debate coach. >> we reached out to roger ailes' attorney who would not comment on the settlement other than to say that ailes is not contributing to any of it. he wouldn't comment on criticism that ailes could be a liability to the trump campaign. >> brian todd, $20 million, pretty stunning as we said for

shouldn't be anywhere near the white house. you should not be commenting on fed actions when you are either running for president or you are president. words have consequences. words move markets. words can be misinterpreted. >> so here's exactly what trump said. >>. >> they're keeping the rates artificially low so obama can go out and play golf after january and say that he did a good job, but it's a very -- it's a very false economy. we have a false economy. we have a bad economy, everyone understands that, but it's a false economy and at some point the rates will have to change. >> out front tonight economic adviser to donald trump cnbc senior contributor larry kudlow and the author of the new book jfk and the reagan revolution, a secret history of american prosperity. larry, you heard hillary clinton saying these comments showed
4:51 pm
donald trump is not fit to be president. is it irresponsible for him to say the fed is trying to help president obama? >> no one will be able to confirm, that all right? but i don't have a problem with presidential candidates talking about monetary policy and it's a gigantic part of our economic policy and it's had a huge impact on our economy and i don't think much of the fed myself. i don't think much of what they've done in the last seven, eight, nine years and i don't think it's helped the economy. mr. trump has said before that he will not rehire janet yellin. i haven't actually talked to him about that. i just want king there are, remember from the days of old, i want king dollar, and i want pro-growth tax rates particularly on business to get this economy moving to 5%. that's all i want. >> to 5% growth. that's what you've been talking about with donald trump and advising him on his tax plan. >> look, there are some people who say that what he has put out
4:52 pm
there is going to be horrific. mark cuban one of them and said if trump wins the market's going to tank. this is something he said to me a couple of months ago. he doesn't mince words when he said it. here he is. >> when you're flip-flopping when you're not sure what the candidate's going to say from one thing to another. that uncertainty, potentially has the president of the united states, that's the last thing wall street wants to hear. and i can say with 100% certainty that there is a really good chance we could see a huge, huge correction. >> he then went on to say, larry, 20% plus. >> it could be right. everybody is right. the clock passes 12:00 twice a day. mr. cuban is entitled to his opinions. i'm not going to disagree about the stock market. i think, by the way, we are in a profits and business recession. so that's a little bit difficult, but do you think donald trump has the best plan to make things better? >> regarding plans and regulations, i think he's done it right and he's very much in
4:53 pm
the jfk-ronald reagan mold and both of those were swayed with slow growth and both were across the board for individuals and businesses. mr. trump's doing the same thing, and i think you will have great success if he cuts through, and frankly, he hadn't changed that tune all year. there's been some tweaking about his plan. i'm not the only guy working on it. there are a lot of other people working on it, but he has a sound growth plan. look, hillary clinton whose husband lored the capital gains tax. i know he raised the income tax, but lowered the capital gains tax. hillary clinton has completely forgotten the legacy of kennedy and she has capital gains and this and that. kennedy was a tax cutter. that's the key point and his legacy has been completely written out of democratic party history. it need not be because the point we make in our book, look for a good dollar and lower tax rates.
4:54 pm
reagan, the republican, duplicated the kennedy formula and said so in a million speeches, if something works, why not try it? big spending and big regulation not working, so it's time to try something different. i'm going to send mrs. clinton a copy of the book in the feint hope that she would read it. >> do you really think trump is like kennedy? >> i'm not going to say trump is like kennedy. that's an all-encompassing statement, what i will say is trump's tax-cut policy is very similar to john f. kennedy and's very similar to ronald reagan's and both of those guys, let me just make this point. kennedy's republican treasury secretary douglas dylan lost to history, but we're bringing him back persuaded kennedy to do this, okay? ronald reagan knew how to go across the aisle in a bipartisan way and recruit democrats who opposed his plan. i don't think tax cuts for

growth has to be a democrat plan. i don't think it has to be a republican plan. i see it as an american prosperity plan and i think people need to sit down and talk about it. the history is there and we tried to illuminate it as best we can. >> i hope people will read it, thank you very much. >> wonderful to see you again, larry, and it's wonderful to see it again. >> jeanne moos on a nose to nose plane at a neck and neck race. oe crohn's disease,... ...i was always searching for ways to manage my symptoms. i thought i had it covered. then i realized managing was all i was doing. when i finally told my doctor, he said humira was for people like me who have tried other medications,... but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief... ...and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections... ...including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers,... including lymphoma, have happened;

4:59 pm
passengers and trump's carries 43 and puts them in seats adorned with the trump family logo. >> mrs. clinton doesn't have her own bedroom on her plane. >> one major difference, hillary's plane is a rental while the donald bought his jet used, it's now 25 years old. the donald makes up for all that gold plating by sending out photos of himself eating mcdonald's and kfc albeit with a knife and fork. both candidates held airborne gaggles with reporters. >> hillary had a coughing fit allergic to trump, she quipped. >> one critic coined th the #airallergy while another photoshopped surgical masks on the press. >> but there's no question whose press is bigger, the president's air force one. >> trump's is bigger than hillary's and the donald told "rolling stone" it's bigger than
