7:02 am
by the way, we'll talk to ivanka trump later on about what she thinks about her speech tonight and the whole melania speech controversy. >> big night for her. you mentioned earlier, ted cruz had the room for the bulk of that speech until that moment where he did not endorse. >> the crowd didn't like that one bit. we have a lot to get to. let's start with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. hey, peter, good morning to you. >> they say they have never seen a convention quite like this. so much for party unity within the last few minutes ted cruz for the first time addressed those comments about donald trump, the billionaire and reality tv star just hours away from facing the biggest audience of his life. ahead of donald trump's night, an even billed as the republican ticket's debut. >> i accept your nomination to run and serve as vice president of the united states of america. >> reporter: trump joining indiana governor mike pence on

7:05 am
democratic opponent. >> hillary clinton wants a new title and i would too if i was the secretary of the status quo. >> when donald trump becomes president of the united states of america, the change will be huge. >> reporter: one example trump talking to "the new york times" this morning saying as president he wouldn't automatically come to the defense of nato allies as required by the alliances charter. if russia attacked its baltic neighbors, trump says he would decide whether to come to their aid only after reviewing whether those countries have fulfilled their obligations to us. the clinton campaign blasting those comments overnight, saying the president is supposed to be the leader of the free world. donald trump apparently doesn't even believe in the free world. matt and savannah, a big night ahead. we'll see you there. >> peter alexander on the floor at the q. thank you. >> let's get more on how ted cruz's nonendorsement is playing with delegates, donors and donald trump himself. nbc hallie jackson has that pa
7:06 am
of the story. hi, good morning. >> good morning to you, matt. we spent most of ted cruz's speech back in the texas section here where the delegates were on their feet the entire time. but when ted cruz said those words, vote your conscience, many seemed stunned. the real furry coming from the new york delegation, anger and shock and another episode of chaos here in cleveland. donald trump's review now in. >> that was a remarkable moment. what did you think? >> i loved it. >> trying to brush off ted cruz's refusal to endorse him, trump tweeting, wow, ted cruz got booed off the stage. didn't honor the pledge. i saw his speech two hours early but let him speak any way. no big deal. some trump supporters think oerz. >> to me ted cruz showed america what he really. he is a fraud. he is a liar. he is self centered and disqualified himself for ever being considered for president of the united states. >> i just think it was an awful
7:07 am
performance by someone who showed himself tonight to not be a man of his word. >> reporter: cruz, returning to his hotel overnight to hug and cheers some texas delegates supportive of his on stage stance. this isn't my party. we don't do this. we might disagree. we can talk it out. but we don't do this to each other. we certainly do not do it to a u.s. senator's wife. >> the trump batting down questions about party unity. >> everyone booing him off stage because i think everyone else in here has the sense to realize the number one goal is to make sure we beat hillary clinton. >> reporter: cruz and trump's relationship over the last year a roller coaster ride. the texas senator embracing trump in the early part of the primary, memorably tweeting he is terrific, #dealwithit. >> things changed as trump amped it. >> we call him lying ted.

7:09 am
>> peter king said he is a liar, chris christie said he was self center. do you agree with all of the above? >> look, donald trump wanted to demonstrate to both his opponents in the primaries and republican party and to the american people that he views the primary process as over. he invited his opponent to speak at this convention. his invitation had no conditions to it. he wasn't asking for endorsements. most people understood what it meant. so people like governor walker and marco rubio and others who spoke you know, said in various capacities plan to support the republican ticket. ted cruz took a different path. >> two schools of thought. one school says he should have never let this happen, knowing that he was going to use the words vote your conscience. there's no reason to give that spot to him on a wednesday night. the other school is you guys are crazy like foxes and you knew when he said those words that would be the reaction on the floor and it would be one of the more unifying moments of the convention so far.
7:10 am
>> well, i'm not sure, but as far as i'm concerned the party is unified. last night despite what senator cruz did the party came together because they see that donald trump is making an effort. you saw paul ryan with a great introduction of vice president to be pence. you saw -- tonight you will see a fantastic speech by trump. >> you said in the last 24 hours you thought ted cruz would be part of this campaign. moving forward i would assume this morning you will retract those words? >> it's up to ted cruz not up to me. >> you would let him come back and be part of the campaign? >> our position is we want to embrace all republicans who are prepared to work and support trump/pence ticket. >> even after he betrayed that goodwill you just talked about? >> i think cruz used very bad judgment. he didn't meet them. >> let me just go back to
7:11 am
something we talked to you about on monday morning or tuesday morning excuse me the morning after melania trump's speech where it was widely believed she had plagiarized portions of that speech. you came on to other shows and this show and said, no, there nofs plagiarizing, there was no cribbing. you even went as far as to blame hillary clinton. we now know in the last 24 hours it was a mistake on the part of the speech writer. that person has taken blame for it. when you said when hillary clinton is threatened by a female, the first thing she does is try to destroy that person. would you offer secretary clinton an apology for blaming her? >> look, first of all, you have to put the situation in context. it wasn't the speech writer. this is something -- >> part of the trump campaign. >> i didn't even know she was involved in the process. when i spoke to melania trump, she said that she believes and still does that she did not put those words in there. she did not know that they were words from michelle obama her specific words. >> go ahead. >> prior to that statement said
7:12 am
the exact opposite and trump knew two days ago that in fact melania had sent this speech. the question is really not about whether she did or she didn't it's really a matter of candor and whether you knew that that came from michelle obama's speech. >> i did not know. i was told by mrs. trump and believe mrs. trump -- she personally put those words in that speech. as far as by mrs. mciver is concerned, i didn't know her existence. i asked the speech writers -- they said no. i asked mrs. trump, she said no. as far as i was concerned -- there was that was my position. >> huge tonight for your candidate. what is he going to say? what do you want him to say? >> he can speak to the american people. he understands the magnitude of his speech. he understands this is his moment to speak to 40 or 50 million people and assess his vision of the country. during the course of the campaign, he's distinguished himself from republicans as far as getting the nomination, but now he will be distinguishing
7:13 am
himself and talking about change versus the establishment and he is the change agent. >> paul manafort, thanks for your time this morning. >> appreciate it. given last night's chaos, tonight's theme is well timed. it's called make america one again. the gop saying speakers will tackle ways to turn challenges into opportunities and focus on what units us not what divides us. >> again the highlight of the evening, donald trump accepting the republican party's nomination for president. as we mentioned, he'll be introduced by his daughter ivanka. we speak to her later. let's bring in nicole wallace and mike murphy. good morning to both you've. what happened last night? >> well, something we've never seen before. it's one thing to be not endorse trump but to get on the podium before the vice presidential nominee, pull a lightning bolt out of your pocket and throw it to trump's eyes. cruz blew himself up. will cruz be able to say purity on ideology and purity on trump. very risky, big move. does it hurt trump?
7:14 am
it does not help. we'll see how trump does tonight. that's what counts. >> nicole, you take a different view, somehow, some way this is a party more united more than ever now? >> i think that cruz accomplish what had the trump campaign has not been able to do so far, he united more republicans behind trump. what he did was the equivalent of going into someone's living room, breaking all the furniture and stealing the food out of the fridge before you run out. it was bad manners and he squandered so much goodwill. we were in the room. that room was behind ted cruz until he got to that moment when he just put the knife right in ted cruz's front. >> i want to talk -- i'm sorry donald trump's front. >> i want to talk about donald trump's speech in a second, but can we just spend one second on staging again. we talked about the staging of the vp announcement a couple of days ago. the moment last night there seemed to be a lack of coordination as mike pence was ready to leave the stage and donald trump came up. was there an attempt to embrace but then they left each other?
7:15 am
what's going on with this? >> let me for the second time this morning defend the trump campaign. he won because he is an outsider and doesn't know what you're supposed to do is grab your running mate's hand and waive it above his head. he won because he doesn't have any idea what you're supposed to do and people that like him still like him because he hasn't built a campaign around him. this is what it looks like when you run a pirate ship instead of a normal campaign. >> on the other hand, if there's anything trump really knows how to do is create an image, create a moment. we saw the entrance. what do you think about that? >> the rule book of the trump campaign is to tear up the rule book. the problem is a lot of rules are there because they work and the narrative of this convention has been train wreck so the pressure on trump tonight to really perform is immense. >> in an interview with the new york times when asked what he wants people to take away from this convention, donald trump said and i'm quoting -- the fact that i'm very well liked -- >> yeah. >> now, generally speaking, isn't it true that a candidate wants people to take away that i
7:16 am
have the vision, i have the policies to take this country forward for the next four or eight years. what do you make of that comment? >> well, that was an extraordinary interview. i'm sure we'll talk about it more in the days to come. he also laid out some really outside the mainstream ideas on foreign policy. i'm told the candidate will not double down on any of the ideas tonight. tonight it will be about the themes that got him here. but this idea of being liked is what animates his entire candidacy. that's why we heard the first ten months of his campaign, he would start by reading out all thele pos, our polls and others. so the problem with the analysis and the problem with that strategy is you need to leave being liked by more people than like you when you got here. i'm not sure yet if he accomplished that. >> the me, me, me school of presidential campaigning has got to end or he will not get out of where he is at now. you can't have a casual commitment to the nato security alliance eventually donald trump has to say something serious. the whole fly by the seat of the pants thing is showing up in policies now. that can be deadly.
7:17 am
>> mike, thank you very much. nicole, thank you very much. >> thank you. got a lot more from cleveland just ahead, including savannah's conversation with ivanka trump who will introduce her dad tonight. reminder, you can catch complete coverage of the rnc all day on msnbc and get mr. trump's speech live in primetime 10:00 p.m. eastern, 7:00 p.m. pacific on nbc. another big story this morning, southwest airlines is waiving ticket change fees for tens of thousands of passengers today after a major computer failure forced the airline to cancel or delay hundreds of flights and the trouble may not be over just yet. let's get right to nbc's tom costello who covers aviation for us. good morning, tom. >> good morning. this is a real mess. southwest says it was forced to cancel 700 flights yesterday, 20% of its flights, even more delayed. that's a huge number. this morning the ceo says the computer systems were restored at 2:00 a.m. they're hoping for a more normal schedule today but it could be a very slow recovery.
7:18 am
it all started mid afternoon with the company's website and computer systems crashed. the backup failed. then the restoration attempts failed. the problems only grew worse through the day. at one point, the airline held all flights still on the ground as it tried to work through the issues. ticket agents were writing out tickets by hand. the lines inside the terminals stretching for hours with tens of thousands of passengers delayed or missing their flights. this morning flight aware shows just under 200 flights cancelled before 7:00 a.m. east coast time today. the airline says it's still in a recovery mode. it's urging customers to check the status of your flights online before arriving at the airports but it could be another rough day as it tries to accommodate everybody who missed a flight yesterday. back to you, guys. >> tom costello in washington. thank you. let's talk about the stifling heat and humidity blanketing a large portion of the country. al's got that. al. >> thanks so much. i want to show you this great drone shot from illinois.
7:19 am
it's about 60 miles west of chicago. the reason we showed this, the reason we show this is we talk about something called the corn sweats. that's right. the humidity emitted from huge fields like this can add to the feels like temperature, which is humidity makes it feel that much warmer. look at all the moisture around that field. that adds to all the heat and humidity and makes you feel worse. today could be the hottest day in the continental united states since june 30th of 2012. i mean, think about it, 91 million people under excessive heat advisories. stretches for 24 states, just shy of 1 million square miles under this heat dome that just drops the warm air falling down. we bring in the humidity. temperatures are in the mid 90s from rapid city to st. louis. it feels like it is over 100s into the weekend. the same as you move further to the east.
7:20 am

7:31 am
convention. ivanka will be in the spotlight tonight as she introduced her father to the delegates. we caught up with ivanka to talk about her speech and adjusting to life on the campaign trail. if i told you a year ago that you would be at the republican national convention, you would be introducing your father who is steps away from the presidency, what would you have said? >> i am not surprised in retrospect because i've never seen my father apply himself with determination towards a goal and not achieve it. last night actually standing alongside both of my brothers when the count went over the top during roll call and he was officially declared the republican nominee, i got very emotional. it's been an unbelievable journey. i'm incredibly proud of my father. >> are you nervous about introducing him tomorrow night? >> i'm terrified. i am terrified. i have never spoken in a stadium like this.
7:32 am
but really i just want to make sure i do a great job for him. you know, it's a real honor and privilege that he asked me to do this. i think it's a testament to him as a parent. >> how did he ask you? >> in a pretty casual way like my father does things like that. ivanka, would you like to do it. you'll be fine. don't worry. it will be great. >> what do you want to convey tomorrow about your dad? >> i know the man as a parent and i can share how he raised me and my siblings and the father he was. but also i can talk about the man he is as a leader and entrepreneur and business builder and visionary. knowing him from those two very different vantage points but seeing similar attributes transcend both words gives me a unique perspective in that regard. >> there's been controversy in the last couple days because melania gave her speech and
7:33 am
campaign acknowledge d there wee parts similar to michelle obama's speech. what have the last two days been like for her and for you and what's your reaction to this? >> i love melania so much and i'm proud of the job she did. she's a very private person and for her to come out on that stage and speak from the heart and share her story about coming to this country, this is such a personal experience for her. she shared it in such a graceful and articulate way. i am enormously impressed with her ability to do that and have great respect for it. >> have you developed that politician's daughter's thick skin yet? >> the last year has helped. definitely a little thicker than it was at the beginning of this. i think the most helpful thing for me is the fact that i know who my father is as a person so a lot of labels get bantered
7:34 am
around and people can say some vicious things. i know the truth about my father. i couldn't support my father if i didn't know those things to be pure fiction. i know the man. that gives me great comfort. >> your brother went after hillary clinton. he definitely went on the attack. should we expect that from you? >> i'm going to speak about my father. that's really what i want to be talking about. that's obviously what i know most intimately. that's where my focus will be. >> how do you feel about the convention and what you hear and what you see? you're on the floor. you hear the excitement. you hear the chants. sometimes you hear chants like "lock her up" or "guilty." are you comfortable with that? >> it's exciting. it's quite a production. it's definitely a different experience. never been to something like this. >> what are you going to tell yourself as you walk out on stage thursday night?
7:35 am
>> don't trip? after i get to the podium, you know, i think i'm really comfortable with my speech because it comes from my heart and hopefully i'm able to deliver it in an articulate way. i think at the end of the day i know i'll go home to my children and they'll love me as much regardless. even if i bomb, my father won't hold it against me. >> i understand why she said she's terrified. not that she doesn't know the subject better than anyone. it's a huge stage. >> i think anyone would have their hearts in their throats. a huge stage right there. you have thousands of people to say nothing of the audience of home. a big honor but also a big job. >> look forward to watching that tonight. >> in our next half hour, we'll hear from eric trump. this morning he has harsh words for ted cruz over what happened on that convention stage last night coming up in our next half hour. >> over to al for a check of the weather. >> thanks so much. got a great crowd here hanging

8:37 am
neighborhood. the black nationalist had a home here and police suspected he was storing weapons of all kinds. the fight broke out and the fight quickly became a war. it was war so violent cleveland's black mayor barred white police from the neighborhood and brought in the national guard. it didn't work. it went on for three days. nine people were killed. policemen and black nationalists. a major cleveland project to rebuild black neighborhoods started before the uprising came to an abrupt and bloody end. it was that kind of year. the other thing about that time, quite honestly, it was not just all that we're seeing there but there was a cultural revolution. the young people were defying everything their parents stood for, the generation i call the greatest generation. they rejected it. it was a time of much more
8:38 am
