9:00 pm
name a town if you wish to opine. world of the day, no ruction when writing to "the factor." please remember the spin stops here because we're definitely looking out for you. breaking tonight. fear spreading across europe as authorities continue to launch new raids. arrests are made and another terror attack appears to have been thwarted in france. welcome to "the kelly file." i'm sandra smith in for kelly tonight. first to france where authorities have arrested a man believed to have been in the advanced stages of plotting a terrorist attack. at this moment, security forces do not believe this plot is linked to events in belgium. meanwhile, we're getting late breaking reports out of brussels that six people have been taken into custody in connection to
9:01 pm
tuesday's attack. right now, it's unclear if any of them are the mystery men who were spotted at the murder scenes. remember, authorities have been on the hunt for the so-called man in white seen at the airport and they're trying to find out more about a man seen in the sketch who was spotted on surveillance video carrying a large bag alongside the metro attacker. shepard smith reports live from brussels tonight. shepard? >> reporter: sandra, the raids went down just as expected, but we didn't expect for there to be six people taken into custody. two different raids in two different neighborhoods here in brussels, plus the arrest of three people in front of the federal prosecutor's office. now the prosecutors do confirm that all six were arrested in connection with the terrorist attack in brussels which happened on tuesday. in france, that raid produced one suspect and an important one. they said an attack was under way in its advanced stages, as
9:02 pm
that attack was thwarted. french officials promise more information in the morning. the two brothers who carried out the suicide bombing attacks here in brussels at the train station and airport, now we know they were on a terrorist watch list inside the united states. was it shared? according to authorities in the united states, they typically share all information like that with interested countries, but specifically whether this was shared is also most likely a matter for first light. two people are still at large here. one, the man who was the third suspect in that cctv picture from the airport here during the bombing at the airport, he's the man on the right, the man in white. as far as we know, he's still at large. and new information from the terror attack that happened at the train station here in brussels. we know there was one bomber, the younger of the two brothers. but now police inform that there are pictures there cctv that show another man was with him, a
9:03 pm
map carrying a black bag. it's possible that he died in the explosion. it's possible that he's on the run. it's also possible that authorities are still sitting on it. finally, word from the state department tonight that at least a dozen americans are in some way involved here. three missionaries who were here, service member and four of his family members injured. four others listed as unaccounted for. and two others about whom they will not be specific, whether they're related to the military or security forces we don't know. the state department promises more information tomorrow. >> shepard, thank you. now as we've been reporting, two of the brussels attackers were brothers. one believed to have died at the airport. the other in the attack on the subway system. but this is hardly the first time that we've seen family members carry out acts of terror. in fact, it appears to be a disturbing trend. here to talk about it, a former
9:04 pm
islamic extremist who spent four years in an egyptian prison and has since reformed. he's the co-founder and chairman of the think tank and author of "radical, my journey out of islamist extremist." good evening to you. >> good evening. >> you look at this trend of family members operating in these terrorist cells. why are they recruiting siblings, particularly these case where is in this most recent case in brussels where brothers were acting together? >> yes, sandra, i can speak of this with some experience. when i joined the islamist organization at 16 years old, i joined with my brother and two older cousins. at the early stages of radicalization and the recruitment process, this is often the case, because groups of young men and often these
9:05 pm
days also young women, feel more affinity towards each other and their bonds of blood and kinship are closer to each other than wider society. that's because of the state of disintegration that exists across europe with regards to european muslims. >> so upbringing has a lot to do with it, but your point also is once they're acting together, that there's a trust involved, and the fear of infiltration is one of the biggest concerns of these terrorists. that too is a reason why siblings and family members are getting together. >> you're very unlikely to betray our brother or cousin or childhood friend. that's one factor. the first generation, the parents off subscribe to a different version of islam to
9:06 pm
those who become radicalized in the second and third generations. but those younger -- the youth have grown up together have their own experiences with wider society and they don't feel part of european society or the societies of their parent's countries of origin. that identity crisis, they all go through it together. it's a shared experience. it's important to mention that's the beginning of the radicalization process. once the indoctrination process kicks in two, three years down the line, then the recruit could betray anyone for the sake of the ideology. we have examples of isis people killing their own mothers in raqqah when they're ordered to by isis as an organization. so loyalty becomes with the group more than anything else. >> with isis, there's a different trend there. you mentioned women. isis, all are involved. we see parents and children and siblings and aunts and uncles,
9:07 pm
cousins, everyone is involved when it comes to isis. this is much different than what we've seen in the past. >> yes. one oh of the reasons for that is for decades in europe, the islamist idealology has been unchecked in some of these communities. there have been no efforts to challenge it and so families in those cases where they've joined isis, they've been for decades growing up on a society of romanticizing the idea of a return of a caliphate. so when isis says they have resurrected a caliphate, these are families that have been waiting for that glorious moment moving to that utopian state where god's laws will be implemented. >> that's the challenge.
9:08 pm
you have spoken many times to this that prevention is the key, because it is so hard to come out of it as you did. you're an example of that. thank you for joining us tonight. good to have you. >> thank you, sandra. we're also learning today that those brothers may have been planning something bigger than the brussels attacks that unfolded on tuesday. ongoing investigations suggest a belgian nuclear facility may have been the group's initial target. trace gallagher is live with the latest on that. trace, good evening. >> reporter: sandra, good evening. this the hours after this week's attack on brussels, belgium's three nuclear power sites were sealed off and all nonessential personnel had their security clearances revoked. at the time, authorities said the move was based on "new information and the events of today." well, now we know belgian security forces were concerned that nuclear facilities themselves could have been targets for terror and here's
9:09 pm
why. three months ago during a raid in brussels that was linked to finding information about the terror attacks in paris, investigators found surveillance video of one of belgium's senior nuclear scientists, the he would of the country's nuclear research and development program. someone had secretly placed a video camera in a bush near the scientist's home to track his daily routine. the fear is that terrorists were planning to kidnap the nuclear expert to gain information on how to get inside a nuke facility. experts say they were likely trying to steal radioactive material to use in a dirty bomb. the covert videotape of the scientist showed two men coming to grab the camera out of the bush. belgian authorities didn't know who the men were until the brothers were identified as two of the suicide bombers in brussels. investigators believe they were planning a much bigger attack, but had to move up their timeline and change their targets after last week's capture of salah abdeslam, the
9:10 pm
man wanted in connection to the attacks in paris back in november. sandra? >> trace, thank you. officials across the globe are warning that the ongoing rage may be forcing other isis cells into action, one u.s. official is now warning that many of our european partners are overwhelmed when it comes to their ability to prevent future attacks. texas republican michael mccaul is chairman of the house homeland security committee and author of "failures of imagination, the deadliest threats to our homeland and how to thwart them." chairman, what do you make of the latest -- the latest threats? we see this report this week that isis has deployed 400 of its fighters throughout europe. does europe have the ability to fight this? >> i think europe is overwhelmed. i think belgium, particularly i was there after the -- or just before the paris attacking.
9:11 pm
there are so many people on the radar screen that they cannot pay attention to all of them. it's not only belgium, it's france, germany, and the uk. when you talk about the number of foreign fighters, these are foreign fighters trained in syria as military soldiers that came back into the region. we have 40,000 that have been trained. 5,000 have come back into europe and into the united states. i think that's the biggest concern with respect to europe, is that they're overwhelmed with the number of foreign fighters and plots and cells. remember the mastermind of the paris attack brought in 90 people. 90 form fighters with him to conduct terror attacks. >> chairman, you said that you believe that this attack, these attacks in brussels were accelerated because of the arrest of the terror suspect in paris. are you working under the assumption now that other plots
9:12 pm
had been rushed and moved forward? >> i think so. i think the arrest in paris today of the advanced terror plot was a major victory for france. however, i do think with the arrest of the tenth paris attacker that was just four days before the brussels attack, that when they saw that, and there was some information he was cooperating, that accelerated them into action and the cells became operational at that point. i think that's why you saw it happen so quickly. as was reported, i think there was another plot where they were looking at breaking into a nuclear facility. >> something you wrote about in your book. >> well, in my book, i talk about the use of radioactive material being brought across in the western hemisphere, across the u.s.-mexico border and a dirty bomb explosion going off in the houston shipping channel. these are all very real scenarios.
9:13 pm
>> where are we, chairman, people listening to this and watch thing news unfold and those arrests made and of course, these deadly terrorist attacks that played out in brussels, americans are wondering is it coming here? what is your best assessment at where we are in this fight? and our vulnerability here on u.s. soil. >> i think the great is far greater in europe because of the united states, because of the number of foreign fighters is 5,000 opposed to a couple hundred. but you don't know what you don't know. what we do know is that there are individuals, isis members in syria, talking to individuals in the united states and part of the problem, sandra, we can't see the communications. because it's done in encryption. if you can't see what they're saying, it's hard to stop it. this is one of the greatest challenges to the homeland and to fbi as they try to close in on the suspects in the united states.
9:14 pm
>> and this has been one of your big things, the encryption. we're operating in these dark spaces. you talk about this a lot. did these terrorists work under those conditions? >> we know in the paris attacks, they use an app called telegram, which was encrypted and we couldn't see that. people say why didn't you see paris coming? it's because we couldn't see the communications. given the connectivity between the cells in paris and the cells in belgium, and in brussels, i would assume that they were using the same dark space encrypted communications. >> okay. chairman, thank you for joining us tonight. >> thank you, sandra. more than 48 hours after terrorists pulled off the worst violence belgium has seen since world war ii, we're getting breaking information about the americans reported missing after the attacks. we'll take you back to brussels with the latest on the younld from a country under siege. plus, a dance floor moment from
9:15 pm
president obama's argentina trip, drawing some ire. a lot of people are talking about this. we'll have a fair and balanced debate on that. and more shots being fired in the war of words over ted cruz and donald trump's wives. comments from the texas senator suggesting he's had enough. suggesting he's had enough. >> donald, you're a[engines rev] you can't have a hero, if you don't have a villain. the world needs villains [tires screeching] and villains need cars. ♪ innovative sonicare technology with up to 27% more brush movements versus oral b. get healthier gums in 2 weeks guaranteed. innovation and you. philips sonicare. save when you buy the most loved rechargeable toothbrush brand in america.

9:19 pm
by visiting breaking tonight. for the past two days, loved ones have been waiting on word for the fate of four americans who haven't been heard from since the attacks. one of the families' worst fears may have come true. mike tobin is live in brussels, belgium. mike? >> reporter: i don't have good information or good news tonight, particularly as it relates to alex and sasha. that is the brother and sister that lived in new york, they were from here and back visiting. the family members sent only representatives out here hoping against hope that they were in the hospital and unidentified. the family has been provided a list of survivors, and they were not on the list.
9:20 pm
their hope is really dashed at this stage in the game. they were both standing near the delta ticket counter when the bombs went off. the family is asking for support, prayers, and privacy. also among the missing are justin and stephanie schultz. they moved to brussels in 2014. they're both from kentucky and tennessee. they were dropping off stephanie's mother at the airport when the bombs exploded. carolyn moore, the mother survived. she said stephanie was waving goodbye at the time the bombs went off. to make matters worse, the family had been informed that both had survived, only to find later that was bad information. 22 people are now missing following the blasts. >> mike, thank you. also breaking tonight, the issue of political optics. dancing onto center stage with president obama hit hard even by left of center media for doing the tango on his argentina trip.
9:21 pm
this was just 24 hours after terrorists struck brussels. joining me now is mark tiessen and robert zimmerman. good evening to you both. robert, i'll start with you first. the optics of this, tay don't look good. >> obviously. it's a bad photo-op without question and the individual who advanced that moment and orchestrated it should look for a new job. but the bigger issue here, when you hear the report from the tragedy in brussels, the bigger issue here is that a president of the united states cannot be forced to retreat home from these historic trips to cuba and argentina, because that exactly plays into what the terrorist agenda is, which is to control and dictate our president's conduct. and likewise, we can't allow ourselves out of fear and panic
9:22 pm
to embrace the cruz and trump strategy, which has been condemned by many leading generals who served in the bush administration and leading law enforcement officials. >> mark, that -- >> that compromises and threatens our security. >> robert, you addressed him not coming home. mark, you'll be the first to point out many of the calls weren't for obama to come home. they were simply saying it probably isn't a good time to dance the tango. >> that's right. the optics of the president of the united states dancing a tango, and we agree on this, were terrible. he probably shouldn't have gone to the baseball game. if you're going to be in cuba, don't go to a baseball game and pal around with raul castro. but the bigger problem is not the optics. i'm less concerned about the fact that barack obama was dancing in argentina than i am about the fact that we're losing the war with islam radicalism, that isis is on the march across the world. it's not just brussels and paris
9:23 pm
where these attacks happened. since 2014, the islamic state has carried out 75 attacks in 20 countries outside of iraq and syria that have killed 1,280 people and injured 1,770. this -- the president of the united states told us in november that isis was contained. they are not contained. they are carrying out, they're getting stronger, on the march across the world. they have cells throughout europe and they are going to come here. >> no one is underestimating the threat isis represents to the world and to our safety and it's clear that it's a top priority. this is important, that when the president was talking about the united states and our combattin isis, isis has lost 40% of its territory and oil profits are down 30% in the past year. but it could begin with the republican congress passing a resolution of war against isis
9:24 pm
which they refuse to do. likewise, the senate could confirm a secretary of the army. let's put the rhetoric aside and unite as a country and take on isis. that's the challenge here. >> mark, let's go back to you. the president in the short amount of time that he did address brussels during his trip, he did say that fighting isis and fighting terror is his number one priority. that, robert, i would say is why there's so many questions tonight about why we've heard so little from him in the wake of this attack. >> actually -- is this for mark or robert? >> go ahead and finish and mark can have the last word. >> by all means. obviously the president has addressed it and he has to continue to rally our question to this, and i believe most of all he has to rally the world and i think we've made important steps in the middle east of doing that. our law enforcement around the
9:25 pm
country is a great source of pride for all of us. and congress has to put aside partisanship and declare a war rez resolution against isis. >> this is a man who in 2014 said isis is the jv squad and said they are not a direct threat or something that we have to wade into. isis came in, took over territory the size of great britain, took in billions of dollars and in november he said they're contained. paris, belgium, san bernardino. now another plot broken up in paris. they are not contained. they are growing in strength. and that's the problem we face today. >> anger and fears are running high tonight. thanks to both of you for joining us. breaking tonight, trump leads the gop field comfort my, but what about hypothetical polling against hillary clinton come november? michael johns and rich lowery break down the latest numbers and what it means for the general. and as donald trump revives the war of words over his wife
9:26 pm
melania and ted cruz's wife heidi, comments from the texas senator suggesting he's had enough. >> it's not easy to tick me off. i don't get angry often. but you mess with my wife, you mess with my kids, that will do it every time.
9:27 pm
9:28 pm

9:30 pm
donald trump continuing his war of words with ted cruz today over their wives. it all began when an anti-trump super pac used an image of melania trump in an ad, some the cruz campaign disavowed. but when trump retweeted the following post on twitter today, ted cruz took a harsher tone, watch. >> why donald trump is launching insults and attacks at their mommy, i'm not looking forward to that confidence. real men don't try to bully women. donald, you're a sniveling coward and leave heidi the hell alone. >> are you going to support him if he's the nominee? >> i'm going to beat him. donald trump will not be the nominee.
9:31 pm
>> good evening to you both. >> hi, sandra. >> so david, i'll start with you first, because did i read this right, that you said trump's a man's man and that's what his followers love about him? in defense of his attack on ted cruz's wife. >> is there any doubt about that? you saw his wife attacked by the super pac and assumed cruz -- >> but the super pac is not tied to ted cruz. >> right. but cruz denied the iowa scandal until he was confronted and admitted that his operatives told voters not to vote for ben carson. but here's the thing, the reality is donald trump responded with satire. that was a satirical -- >> no, he did not. >> what if he had made the tweet, his beautiful wife and possible future first man of the united states bill clinton with
9:32 pm
a smirk on his face, would people have been outraged? no, they would have laughed and moved on. that's what people need to do with this one. >> if i were the wives, i don't think i would have laughed. >> it's not funny and i find it again amazing how donald trump supporters, like david, continue to condone behavior that's easily condemnable and when it's the right thing to do, supporters like david here can't actually get on the right side of somethings. this is the facts here. ted cruz had nothing to do with the ad that was put out with melania trump. when ted cruz found out about it, he responded by saying melania is a wonderful person. donald trump responded by again proving he only cares about what women look like. he again repeated less track record of going after the wives of candidates. let's not heidi cruz is not one of donald trump's first targets here. jeb bush's wife was another target of donald trump's inappropriate, immature and
9:33 pm
frivolous attacks that proves that donald trump is unpresidential, unfit for the presidency. people like you should be condemning it. it's not funny. >> it's a satirical cruz. we know heidi cruz is a beautiful, smart woman. >> david -- >> -- of a horrible picture of his wife just before the caucuses took place, knowing full well the mormon people are very offended by that kind of thing. i think you guys are -- >> katie, do you think that this all could have been put to rest if ted cruz would have immediately condemned the use, the super pac's use of donald trump's wife in that ad? >> no. this could have immediately been avoided if donald trump didn't
9:34 pm
assume that ted cruz put the photo out in the first place when it was a super pac that has nothing to do by federal law with the campaign. to say this was a joke and satirical is straight propaganda, which is not surprising coming from a donald trump supporter like you. >> ted cruz is outraged because he's trying to get political mileage he can't get dealing with the issues because he's been losing across the board. >> i just want to end on this, i want to say politically here, ted cruz defended his wife, he defend eed me lennia trump and half of republican women refuse to vote for donald trump. and if donald trump can't get 50% of republican women, he's not going to get 50% of the democrat or independent women. >> every woman i know is voting for donald trump. >> that's not true. >> let the viewers decide how they feel about that statement. mr. trump continues to dominate his gop competitors in polling and the delegate count, a series of polls released in the last 24
9:35 pm
hours show the republican front-runner facing an uphill battle versus hillary clinton in a november matchup. fox's on polling released last night showing trump down 11 points. bloomberg has clinton winning by 18. and monmouth today has the gop front-runner who, again, is leading the republican field by an average 13 points down 10 against her. joining me now, michael john, the co-founder of the national tea party movement and a former speechwriter to president george h.w. bush, and rich lowery. rich, i'll start with you first. is this an uphill battle for donald trump? he's still top of the polls as far as the gop field is concerned. >> yeah, i don't discount the possibility that trump could do much better than these polls are suggesting and surprise everyone the way he has in the republican primary battle. but he's starting out with a real problem. he's been sliding the wrong way
9:36 pm
in these head-to-head matches with hillary clinton as those numbers suggested. he's below 40% in some of these polls and losing by double digits in a lot of them. then you dig down and look at the subgroups. his numbers are toxic among millennials, women, among college educated people, among blacks and hispanics. you look at individual state where is he tells us he will change the map in new york and new jersey and pennsylvania, michigan, he's losing by double digits to hillary there, as well. so based on every piece of objective evidence we have, the easiest way to make hillary clinton the next president of the united states is to nominate donald trump. >> michael, how is he leading by so much on the gop side? but then in polls it shows he does so poorly against hillary clinton, how does that work?
9:37 pm
>> i'm not terribly concerned about the state of the polls at this juncture. if you went back to 1980 and see where reagan was with carter, he was 25 points behind carter at this juncture. mr. trump has not really eve begun to take off the gloves against hillary clinton. she's a very flawed candidate in many ways. and it's a very legitimate question whether she does or does not end up being indicted. >> why doesn't he take the gloves off with hillary clinton? why doesn't he start this attack on hillary clinton that he keeps promising and saying he has not yet begun? >> i think the issue there is simply that he is trying to unify and i think doing successfully so the conservative movement, the tea party movement and the republican party behind his nomination, which i'm confident he's going to secure. really we're at a point in the evolution of this process, when the time has come to realize this is a man of extraordinary promise. he's bringing issues to the surface, mr. trump is, that
9:38 pm
really need to be addressed by republicans and offering great promise to identify with grassroots republicans in ways that they haven't done. >> rich, go ahead. >> let me address the reagan comparison. it really doesn't hold up to scrutiny. it's based on an erroneous gallup poll from early 1980. and the poll was just wrong all throughout 1980. and also in that first three months in 19 0, jimmy carter was benefitting from a rally around the hostage crisis. but polling early in 1979, had reagan very competitive with carter. and we're also doing a disservice to the memory of ronald reagan, who was a man serious in his purpose and fundamentally decent. >> michael -- >> he would never do what donald
9:39 pm
trump has done to heidi cruz the last couple of days. never in a million years. >> yeah, i think the time has really come to -- certainly if you're going to look back eight months ago, rich is a great expert and i respect him. i don't think he would have predicted trump would be in a position he's in right now. so these polls are not terribly meaningful. this is a transformational leader. the things he's bringing to the surface are unprecedented and very important to address. >> thanks for joining us tonight. raids in the city of brussels continue at this moment. some 72 hours after tuesday's attacks. for that reason, terror becoming a hot topic among presidential front-runners. and former bush media strategist's showtime crew was there to capture it all. he's here next on what we heard behind the scenes from the two front-runners. >> you got the call from your friends this morning, you were scheduled to do a bunch of morning show interviews by phone.
9:40 pm
did you consult anybody about what to say? >> no. i don't have to consult anybody. i say it from my heart and brain. it's not just heart, it's heart and can you explain why you recommend synthetic over cedar? "super food?" is that a real thing? it's a great school, but is it the right one for her? is this really any better than the one you got last year? if we consolidate suppliers, what's the savings there? so should we go with the 467 horsepower? ...or is a 423 enough? good question. you ask a lot of good questions... i think we should move you into our new fund. sure... ok. but are you asking enough about how your wealth is managed? wealth management at charles schwab.

9:45 pm
>> we're talking about when you became aware of it and what happened from there. >> sure. in the middle of the night, i must have rolled over and looked at my iphone and this news had broken. she's a political candidate but a former secretary of state, so you have a balance of how you talking about it, but sort of waiting. >> so this is an opportunity where people, where voters get an opportunity to see people under pressure when responding to real-time events. >> yeah, and it's something thankfully, and one of the reasons i work for her, she's good at it. we didn't have a lot of information at the time, and you have to be careful. >> when did you learn about what happened in brussels? >> i received a call in the morning, and then i turned on
9:46 pm
the television. >> like 5:00 a.m. >> pretty early. and i saw what happened, and said, here we go. here we go. >> you got the call from your friend this morning, you were scheduled to do a bunch of morning show interviews by phone. did you consult anybody about what to say? >> no. i don't have to consult anybody. i say it from my heart and brain. it's not just heart, it's heart and brain. it's what i do. i say what i think is appropriate. >> we saw him there. joining me now is mark mckinnen, a top media adviser and co-creator of "the circus." you are seeing a sneak peek of what is coming up sunday. >> we are focusing this week on trump and clinton and it was this week this significant event happened. so we got to see how they responded in realtime behind the scenes. we talked to secretary clinton, we were with donald trump. so it was fascinating, because this is a good glimpse of how
9:47 pm
they would act as president under a crisis situation. and it couldn't have been more different both in style and substance. >> meaning what? >> the clinton campaign, it was like a 3:00 a.m. phone call and they called brooklyn. they got the foreign policy advisers and a lot of these pieces are in place, but they had a methodical response with a lot of input. donald trump was just complete, spontaneous, and intuitive response. >> what did you make of that? you're seeing so much on the campaign trail. this really is a different look than any of us get, because you kind of do wonder sometimes how do they get the news? how do they see -- what is the initial look that they're getting with something like this? >> i think that's what voters want. they want to get some contextual understanding about what's happening off the stage. how are they really responding? what kind of interaction do they have with staff or advisers or just an intuition like donald trump? it's a very different approach
9:48 pm
but we got a good look at it. >> so you would be a good guy to ask, is what we see what we get or do you see these candidates acting a different way behind closed doors or on the trail or in buses or on the airplanes? >> we do see a really different side of them. that's what is great is when the cameras are off, there's a different contextualized sense of them, because you see them not just talking to a camera. >> give us some examples. >> there was a great example of secretary clinton the other day just saying some supporters had said, we want you. she later said, you know, it's nice to be wanted. i want to be wanted. which is different from the old hillary clinton. you know, we see sides of these candidates that are different than the big narrative. secretary clinton has a sense of humor and donald trump is really good with his family. these are things that are not what you get from the sort of macro narrative that the media
9:49 pm
writes. >> a lot of people talk about their energy level. we're looking at hillary clinton right now. you see them, every morning you wake up they're somewhere, when they go to bed they're in a different state. what is the energy like? >> that's what is amazing. you see it's a crushing experience that these candidates have to go through. these people are a lot older than i am. a lot of their viewers. and they maintain a schedule twice, three times what anybody else can do. they go morning to midnight for more than a year, and they're driven. >> what about the number of people around them? because hillary clinton, you get the idea she has got a big group of people, she talked to advisers right away. donald trump, you see him on his own a lot. do they both have their teams around them all the time? >> well, there are teams around secretary clinton. she's been in government most of her adult life. there's a huge network of people. donald trump hasn't.
9:50 pm
there's not a big team around donald trump. and it's astonishing that he's leading the -- the leading nominee for the republican ticket and yet there's beyond a couple people, there's there's nothing behind him. >> mark mckinnon "the circus" sunday -- >> 8:00 p.m. eastern time. >> all right. wheal be tuning in. thank you, sir. up next the story of young men who were faced with an extraordinarily difficult situation. and how they reacted. will truly warm your heart. stay tuned. at mfs investment management, we believe in the power of active management. we actively manage with expertise and conviction. so you can invest with more certainty. mfs. that's the power of active management.
