"early today" starts right
now. good morning, i'm dara brown, breaking news this morning for the first time in america's 240 year history, a woman at the top of the a major party ticket. just a short while ago, nbc projected hillary clinton as the winner in california. and while senator bernie sanders refuses to back downed, the front page of the daily news says it all. secretary clinton has clinched a majority of pledged delegates to become the presumptive nominee for president. also taking new jersey, south carolina, and new mexico, along with california, clinton makes history in breaking that next glass ceiling. >> it may be hard to see tonight, but we are all standing under a glass ceiling right now. thanks to you, we have reached a milestone. first time in our nation's history that a woman will be a
major party nominee. >> clinton also made some of her strongest points against her likely republican opponent, donald trump. >> donald trump is temperamen l temperamentally unfit to be president. he is not just trying to build a wall between america and mexico, he is trying to wall off americans from each other. when he says let's make america great again, that is code for let's take america backwards. >> meanwhile, sanders held a final california rally after he won the state of north caroliad. sanders remains on continuing his campaign refusing to give up the fight. >> next tuesday, we continue the fight in the last primary in washington, d.c. and then we take our fight for
social, economic, racial and environmental justice to philadelphia, pennsylvania. i am pretty good in arithmetic, and i know that the fight in front of us is a very, very steep fight. but we will continue to fight for every vote, and every delegate. >> sanders will spend today in his hometown of burlington, vermont. "the new york times" reports his campaign is planning for layoffs. he is scheduled in washington, d.c. on thursday, we'll he meet with harry reid and a new statement from the white house says at sanders' request, the president and sander also meet at the white house about the significant issues at stake in this electio that matter most. president obama called both of them and congratulating them for
their campaigns, issues like fighting economic inequality. last night, donald trump used a teleprompter to to stay on message and shake confidence. he reached out to supporters. here is what he said. >> i understand the responsibility of carrying the mantle, and i will never, ever let you down. too much work, too many people. blood, sweat and tears, never going to let you down. i will make you proud of your party. and our movement. that's what it is. it is a movement. >> it was trump's best attempt to calm the political water, after what some are calling the worst 72 hours of his campaign. but as measured as that speech was, it remains to be seen if it was enough to drown out the negative headlines following trump. yesterday, paul ryan criticized trump over the
university case. >> claiming a person can't do the job because of their race is sort of like the textbook definition of a racist comment. that should absolutely be disavowed and absolutely unacceptable. but do i believe hillary clinton is the answer, no, i do not. >> this digital front page of the daily news takes aim the speaker ryan to back trump. mitch mcconnell also slammed trump for his comments. >> my advice to our nominee would be to start talking about the issues that the american people care about, and to start doing it now. in addition to that, it's time to quit attacking various people that you competed with, or various minority groups in the group, and get on message. >> trump also received his unendorsement from senator mark kirk. he put out a statement that says after much consideration i have conclude thad donald trump has not demonstrated the temperament necessary to assume the greatest
office in the world. nbc's hallie jackson spoke with the senator yesterday and he encouraged his fellow republicans to follow his lead. >> i cannot support him because of what he said about the judge. that was too racist and bigoted for me. >> do you hope other memrs of your party do what you're doing now? >> i do. we should send a strong message that racism and bigotty will not be tolerate zd that came shortly before he launched a website defending his university, 98 percent approval rating.com. he said his words were misconstrued, but he did not apologize for his attacks on a federal judge's mexican heritage. instead, he said i do not feel that one's heritage makes them incapable of being impartial, however, he says he feels justified in questioning whether he is getting a fair trial based
on prior rulings. he hit back against republican critics last night. >> some of the republicans and in all fairness, some of the people that i went through war with, and i won, and there a lot of -- there a lot of anxiety there. there is a lot of, you know, there a lot of anger, i guess, anger. they just can't come back. they can't get over it. they have to get it over ideally. as to whether or not they endorse me, it's okay if they don't. they shouldn't be so angry for so long. >> let's bring in political analyst and best selling author ellis hennigan. >> what a night. >> wow. >> we did expect hillary clinton was going to win and we knew that, but senator sanders, he is not backing down. what will this do to the democratic party? >> it is rattling the hillary campaign, i'll tell you that. they want him to get going, bernie. it's been lovely knowing you, but hit the road, about you hbu. >> he is going to meet with president obama and with harry reid on thursday. >> that's right. >> and this is at sanders'
request. what do you think they'll talk about? >> you have do believe that he is open to the idea of finding some kind of smoother exit strategy, right. he is not going to get the nomination. i mean, even he is clear about that. but so what does he do to continue this movement, to affect the platform, to make sure that the issues that he cares about actually get advanced in the years to come. >> well, can president obama or possibly senator reid, can they play peacemaker in this, and what is going to happen if bernie sanders decides to not play ball here? >> well, think of obama as the leaner in chief, right, he is leaning on bernie. you know, in the end, listen, he has a right to continue. he can fight until the convention. he can fight on. in the end, though, i believe that bernie actually, you know, has some belief in these issues he has been fighting for for decades. he sure doesn't want president trump in charge. >> no doubt bernie sanders does believe in what he is fighting for, and hasn't he kind of won
here? hasn't he also made hillary clinton a better candidate? >> yes, he has won every way except he is not going to be were he is. >> correct. >> the impact on the party, and i have to tell you, dara, the democratic party four years or eight years from now may be closer to the progressive wing that bernie represents than the more moderate approach that we get from hillary. >> it will be interesting to see if that happens. let's turnover to trump for a bit here, because he seems to have actually taken the hint, right. he was working with a prompter last night. he stayed on target. he took measured steps here. do you think this will make an impact? >> will it last? doubtful. i mean, listen, it calmed the me memo men temporary crisis. top republicans questioning whether they could continue to support him. so he had to calm that down and i suppose he achieved that last night. but i have to tell you, i think
donald is more the caged animal who going to be shaking it bars 12 hours from now. will he still be reading off the prompter, i got my doubts. >> you brought up a good thing that people are running away from him. senator mark kirk was the first to unendorse him. and he has urged his colleagues to do the same. how will that effect him? >> the question does it spread beyond a couple of folks. clearly, he has upset a lot of traditional republicans. you saw mitch mcconnell, right, and others saying, hey. so i think he has a problem. he has to real it in. >> real it in. >> thanks . in other news, bicyclists killed in kalamazoo, michigan. charges are expected to be filed later this week, all of the victims are adults.

>> but zika is linked to 1,400 cases of microcephaly in babies, and health experts continue to warn pregnant women or women who might become pregnant to avoid the country. >> are you pregnant? >> well, yeah, i am pregnant. >> the "today" show savannah will not go to rio. >> the doctors says we shouldn't because of the zika virus. >> t.j. vanguard en says he could be a concern to his wife after returning. >> tom costello reporting. bill karins is here with your forecast. good morning. >> the heat is on the move and done with tropical storm colin. minor flood threat as we go throughout the day today. flood watch for central portions of florida. this got about 4 to 6 inches of
