11:00 pm
mr. trump: i don't know who you are talking to come up but you were totally out of control. i said there is someone with a temperament problem. john: we are back in the debate media spin room at hofstra university in hempstead, new york. you have just been watching the very top twitter moment of the entire debate. donald trump talking about his temperament contrasting his temperament is a winner with hillary clinton, although he did not use the word loser, has a non-winner. -- as a non-winner. i'm back with senator david perdue, telling me why donald trump is a winner. it seems to me that there will be a lot of factual questions raised. a big debate about back-checking. lester holt did a bit of it, hillary clinton did a lot. including treating a whole website to fact check him in
11:01 pm
real-time. clearly some things he said are not true. some things he said are debatable. do you think the things he said that will be proven inevitably, because for instance the new york police union had said that murders are falling in new york. do you think those will affect his fortunes politically? >> i really don't. this is further evidence of people looking at this race through the lens of the establishment. what i saw as the most salient moment was early when he actually characterized her as a 30 year product available -- product of a bubble. she said she prepared to be president. how? biting in the political local. he was creating thousands of jobs out in the real world. when i think about fact checking, that will be outweighed by the fact that most people are concerned about the economy. 70% of americans do not trust
11:02 pm
her. that is a big part of this conversation. john: you think he was adequate we prepared? >> i absolutely do. this is not a debate. this is about your vision for the future. we don't talk about hope anymore. will he talks about is creating a growing economy that will help everybody. he's got great ideas. reducing our taxes, going back on regulation. they are diametrically opposed to those ideas. john: i want to read you one tweet from franklin's -- tweet from a focus group maestro. so far he says 70 people in his group say hillary is winning. 3 say trump. birther question destroyed him. when you think about that? >> that is 20 people.
11:03 pm
that is looking at the big through the lens of a political pundit, not people in america. john: it seems that he's looking at it through the lens of 20 undecided voters. that is not a pungent's -- a pundit's views. those are of real voters. >> well maybe not. that is a pundit's view. people want a change in direction. john: i will press you on one more tweet from rudy giuliani. he seems to be less bullish. he says on twitter, "debate was not trump's best, but there were still two more." that does not sound like a triumphant tweet. >> the two issues people will tell you are the salient issues in this process is the global security crisis, and this calamity called an economy. barack obama's policies has created both of those.
11:04 pm
we had the weakest economic recovery in 70 years. million women have fallen into poverty -- 4 million women have fallen into poverty. they are just going to give us a third term of barack obama. the biggest callout that i think won the debate is when he called out the fact that she never had any real world experienced. how in the world can she be a leader in getting the economy going? john: senator perdue, great to see you. thanks for coming by and thanks for being so patient and actually giving you the chance to talk. thank you very much. mark halperin. are you out there? oh, you are right behind me. there he is. i was told to bring in mark. i
11:05 pm
thought you would be someplace else. how is your meeting with donald trump? mark: he's getting tough reviews on cable. including fox. --said everyone is willing he says everyone is saying that is when the debates, but they are not. john: one of his favorite phrases. mark: i asked him if he thinks hillary clinton line about anything. -- clinton lied about anything. he went back with me-- john: that was mark cuban walking by, for anyone who wondered. [laughter] mark: he went back to the message that clearly was his core message. the one that got in the most positive moments of the night, she can't change washington. he came into the spin room and emphasized that. i think the tension was to emphasize that. john: throughout the entire debate. i will say this will repeat --
11:06 pm
this tweet from rudy giuliani -- "the debate was not trump's best, but there are still two more." when one of your most advocate server -- one of your most avid surrogates are admitting you have lost the debate, that does not mean you have had a good night. mark: when you are looking for a silver lining for trump, it will be that he lives to fight another day. he will come up to the bug debate with more dynamics of the experience. this debate -- he is lucky there are two more. the notion that he will skip the next one. john: i don't think that's going to happen. mark: if it will help him win, he needs a better second one. john: and as you suggested what he really must do is prepare. she was amply prepared. and his lack of preparation showed. mark: his inability to pivot
11:07 pm
and herh the questions challenges to him and get down in the weeds on birtherism, tax returns, the war in iraq -- to tell people to go call sean hannity and he will building out. -- and he will bail me out. this is a guy that got drawn into, and there is no doubt that she knew. attemptsde, i felt her to explain how she makes a country better and extend -- i don't think those were effective particularly. i don't think she will pay too much of that in media coverage, will focus on their cautious. -- on their clashes. john: i think she has a great line when he said you have too much debate prep, and she says
11:08 pm
yes i have too much experience. she has motivated those people to vote. i want to go out to megan murphy and get a last thought. tonight.ur views about give us your over about what took place. >> i don't think she had the most stellar debate performance. but there is no question that she has won this round. he was really unprepared. birther issue will be crucial going forward. and income tax finale answers those questions. people are going to pick apart what he said on that and go looking for whether or not there's any weakness. or mother he has -- or whether he has conceded he has not paid his fair share. and the bloomberg, we should note the mexican peso. if the mexican peso gets weaker,
11:09 pm
that should be a concern over his policies. it strengthened pretty genetically over the debate. that is one sign the markets are watching. they think that hillary clinton won tonight, and that is for sure. mark: thank you megan. i will ask the control room and we are done for the night. we are done for the night. that concludes our coverage from the first debate. there are two more. we will be there to cover them. john heilemann and i would like to thank all our bloomberg colleagues who participated. john: forget twitter. mark: john: -- don't forget twitter. mark: twitter will be partnering with us throughout the debate season. thanks for joining us through whatever platform you choose to to view it with. we will be back at 5:00 eastern time with "with all due

television content. this is the closely held producer of the american music awards, the golden globes, and other life programs. eldridgek's owner industries is reviewing. the u.s. presidential election now just six weeks away. the race has turned increasingly personal. hillary clinton and donald trump clashed slightly over race, trade, and economy in the first debate. they exchanged highly emotive barbs. you need to have a tax system that rewards work and not just financial transactions. and the kind of plan that donald has put forth would be trickle-down economics all over again. in fact it would be the most extreme version. the biggest tax cuts for the top percent of the people in this
11:18 pm
country than we have ever had. i call it trumped up trickle-down. mr. trump: $2.5 trillion. i think it's probably double that that we can't bring into our country. with a little leadership, you get it in here very quickly. and it could be put to use on inner cities and lots of other things. and it would be beautiful. but we have no leadership. honestly that starts with secretary clinton. >> we have our washington bureau chief megan murphy at hofstra university for the event. how did the night go down? megan: 20 a night at hofstra. we are still picking it a part. the consensus seems to be that hillary won round one. she may not have knocked it out of the park, but she avoided big mistakes and hit him hard in a few areas. one is that he cannot still
11:19 pm
answer how he pushed the parser issue -- the birther issue for so many years. she hit him on his business record and failure to disclose income tax. that will come out in the coming days. he was strong on issues like free trade and her and her husband's previous support for the deals that he says are savaging the economy. the same time he was very much on the defensive. he took the bait on self tough questions. i think his campaign will be disappointed with his lack of preparation. --he told our mark bloomberg are mark halperin himself that he thought that he one. how did the public review his performance? >> in the early media coverage he's taking criticism on fox. even rudy giuliani said it wasn't his best debate. trump will say that he one.
11:20 pm
that's something that he learned in the debate. getting the media to believe your spend in a moments afterwards. clinton was that showed not only her experience, donald trump's history with women. we have seen her gap with women eroding since june. that has been very important for her to win over these battleground states. she really made i direct appeal to women tonight. i will be testing to see if she picks up support. >> to battle continues. around one over, 2 and 3 still left to go. coming up later this hour, philippines shares see the longest streak of foreign outflows in 17 years. the president's tough talking policies may have spooked investors.

11:24 pm
outcomes are offset by internal demand. expected to grow at 5.7% both this year and next year. this projection is unchanged from the production released last march. >> what are you seeing in the fundamentals that support this view? >> as i said, the stronger the mystic demand -- stronger domestic demand on consumption. including infrastructure. we are the major sources of growth in the first half of this year. growthna for instance, was 6.7% higher than expected,. because of the stronger consumption in the estimate on lack of wage growth and urban jobs creations.

looking at outflows relative the market, celeb value was the biggest amount. -- absolute value was the biggest amount. what do you think is behind that sizable move? or is it because markets outperformed in recent months? hans: the other thing to think about, we have also seen the philippine index performance at double-digit year to date according to bloomberg's latest chart. end, andtility at one the ability to realize gains, a number of these funds have decided to stay out of the market while they are realizing some of their gains. that is number one.

there probably is a disproportionate, or a perception gap, with local news relative to i would argue what's happening on the economic and finance site. the main thing is not talked about is that nothing has changed in terms of government points of view. in fact they have been quite upfront saying they will spend onleast 5-7% of gdp infrastructure. secondly they are upfront in saying they will -- they will have increased to 3%. imfing at it this morning, concurred that was the correct strategy. the signaling has been quite strong and straightforward.

there is a sense perception that the current government might be placing too much focus on this all-out war against drugs. there seems to be a perception, and i have to emphasize perception, these economic reforms may be taking a backseat. is that a valid concern? hans: as i said, this perception enoughns there is not focus on the strides by the economic team. they probably have to be commended for acting in a very fast and definitive manner. it will take a few more months a see whether you do have continuous economic growth. updated the is
