7:02 am
are exchanging a flurry of jabs. clinton now says her rival's rhetoric are taking hate groups mainstream. let's begin with nbc's andrea mitchell. >> reporter: morning, matt. the racial insults were flying between donald trump and hillary clinton. he calling her a bigot, she saying that he has helped a radical fringe take over the gop. donald trump ramping up his war of words with hillary clinton on cnn late thursday. again, calling her a bigot. >> she is a bigot. >> in what way? >> you look at what's happening to the inner cities, you look at what's happening to african-americans and hispanics in this country where she talks all the time. >> reporter: clinton's running mate tim kaine addressing the b word in a taped interview that airs tonight. >> he called your friend, hillary clinton, a bigot. >> when hillary clinton got out of law school she was working to help advance racial justice in the juvenile justice system in south carolina and fight school
7:03 am
segregation in alabama at his early career donald trump was a real estate guy who got sued by the justice department for discriminating against people in housing. >> he is taking hate groups mainstream. >> reporter: and in a major speech clinton tearing into trump, charging her rival with building his campaign on prejudice and paranoia, tying him to right wing extremists, citing trump's leading role in the birther movement. >> he promoted the racist lie that president obama is not really an american citizen. >> reporter: dismissing his claims about her health. >> his latest paranoid fever dream is about my health. all i can say is, donald, dream on. >> reporter: calling trump's new campaign ceo steve bannon, the head of breitbart, a key player in the alt-right movement. >> a fringe element that has effectively taken over the republican party. >> reporter: underscoring her message with a new video featuring former clans man david duke praising trump. >> running against donald trump
7:04 am
at this point is really tree son to your heritage. >> reporter: even before clinton spoke trump insisting she is smearing her supporters. >> hillary clinton isn't just attacking me, she's attacking all of the decent people of all backgrounds, doesn't matter, of all backgrounds who support this incredible once in a lifetime movement. >> reporter: escalating his attack on the clinton foundation. >> hillary clinton's actions constitute all of the elements of a major criminal enterprise. >> reporter: asked whether his own $100,000 donation to the foundation constituted pay for play trump hedged. >> i didn't do it for that reason. there was nothing i had in mind, but i will say they liked me a lot. they liked me a lot. and if i make that contribution they probably have liked me at all. >> reporter: and in his cnn interview thursday night trump, again, seemed to suggest he might be flipping back to his original position on deportation. suggesting no path for
7:05 am
legalization for undocumented workers unless they first leave the country and then come back, causing more head spinning among his supporters and his critics. matt and savanna. >> we will get into that in just a second. we will sort it out with chuck todd and niccole wallace. good morning into good morning. >> the olympics glow still all around matt. >> it was so good. >> let's talk about this latest back and forth on the campaign trail over race. chuck, to you. i mean, you have donald trump calling her a bigot, you have her giving this huge speech which essentially makes the argument that he or his supporters are bigot. is this a good strategy on either side? >> it's not a good straty to be hurling these ep a taths at each other. when we thought three months ago this was going to be a race to the bottom this race a proving it, we are headed for a race to the bottom. there is some strategy behind this, right? donald trump at least the new team has woken up and realized
7:06 am
there is a whole bunch of republicans not supporting us, if we can fix our problems with hispanics or african-americans or at least not sound so hateful maybe some of these white republican suburban night voters will come back to the fold. >> you agree that this pitch from donald trump to african-american -- >> that's right. >> it's not to win minority votes. >> this is about winning suburban votes in northern virginia and the suburbs of philadelphia, you in a i'm it. >> before these last couple of days the big news out of the trump campaign was a possible willingness on his part to walk back one of his main policy promises on immigration where he said these 11 million people, immigrants living with this country illegally had to leave, the deportation force, all that. then he comes back and said only the ones that have committed crimes, others can pay back taxes. now last night it seems like he's back to square one. exactly what is donald trump's policy on immigration? >> i have no idea. he got a question from anderson cooper about the softening of
7:07 am
his position and he answered it as though anderson was using a word that anderson thought of and he said it's not a softening it's some people call it a hardening, trump called it a softening in two down halls this week. i think we make a mistake of presuming there's policy behind his utterances. there isn't. when hillary clinton went to what all the republicans have done in the past on race, she cited george w. bush going to a mosque, she cited john mccain standing up to someone who called president obama a muslim, i wish a republican had given that speech into there is an amazing thing that happened yesterday. hillary clinton called the republican nominee a racist and all these republicans decided to come and say, oh, my gosh, you -- not a word. no republicans outside the campaign said, how dare you, hillary clinton, call a republican nominee a racist. the sound of silence among mainstream republican elected officials yesterday is stunning. >> 73 days. where is this race right now? >> i mean, you talked about the
7:08 am
bottom. we're looking up at the bottom. it's somewhere we have never been before and i think we've sort of entered this black box phase where the crash has happened and we're trying to figure out how we got here. i would caution republicans to not make this all about trump. he won because people picked him and republicans have to understand what the good parts were about his message and what they lacked that our voters picked him over 16 others. >> what i can't figure out is what this is going to do to turnout. i think that that's -- that's the one last unknown. when you race to the bottom a lot of people are just going to say why bother and then that throws -- that scrambles the whole electoral map. >> chuck and niccole, we're thoroughly depressed. >> let's bring the olympics back. >> good to see you guys. >> come on. >> the public would love it, interest u.s. me. >> you would love it. also this morning there seems to be a lot of uncertainty swirling around that tropical system that could threaten southern florida as soon as this coming weekend. al has been keeping a very close
7:09 am
eye on that. mr. roker, good morning to you. >> you talk about politicians flip-flopping, our models have been flip-flopping as well. so here we have this system that is yet to develop, they've got a noah plane in there right now, invest 99-lment the chances of development have been dropping over the last 24 hours, now a 30% chance of development 48 hours, 60% in the next five days. watch this. so now on saturday both the u.s. model and european model are pretty straightforward, heavy rain, gusty winds in the bahamas, rain in southern florida. now watch what happens as we get into monday. the european model starts to come across florida, the american model starts going out into the gulf with that warmer water, 90 degrees, and now by the time we get to tuesday the european model is off the southeastern atlantic coast, 24 hours ago it was just the opposite, the american model is out in the gulf. so we've really got to watch this very, very closely, but we
7:10 am
do know that we're going to be looking at heavy rain in central and southern florida, at least 5 inches throughout southern florida, guys, but, again, this flip-flop is something we haven't seen in a long time and it's still out there and so we're going to really have to play very close attention to it. >> and we will. al, thank you very much. i want to talk now about a chaotic scene at an airport in omaha, nebraska. a man scaled a barbed wire fence, s it happened as passengers were boarding a flight to denver. one thought it was a bomb going off because there was a loud boom and then the lights went off. three people suffered minor injuries. the suspect was taken into custody. the fbi and ntsb are now investigating. we go to italy now where overnight the death toll from that powerful earthquake rose higher as this urgent search for survivors enters its third day. nbc's chief global correspondent bill neely is in the decimated town of amatrice this morning.
7:11 am
bill, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. this is still officially a mission to rescue survivors rather than to recover bodies. yes, as you say, the death toll is climbing steadily. . however, it could have been so much worse. this is an elementary school. if this had been full at the time the quake struck, hundreds of children could have been dead here. rescuers say staying alive under this is a long shot. on the ground, they call for silence. they listen for signs of life, they hear none, and they start again. this sister survived and can't believe it. other nuns died. her escape an iconic image. i texted my friends to say
7:12 am
good-bye forever, she says. the ground is still shaking. this aftershock bringing down buildings and triggering clouds of dust. another violent aftershock this morning. they are still pulling victims out. more than 36 hours since they last pulled a survivor like 10-year-old julia out of the rubble but no repeat. this 97-year-old man is homeless now. the whole town is homeless. men living in shacks. this man saved the lives of two children but heard others in the rubble he couldn't help. people are now living in tents and depending on food handouts. this is eir main camp. it can hold around 300 people. but there are thousands homeless here. there's anger too. investigators now probing why this school collapsed in spite of a million dollar spend to make it earthquake proof. amatrice was voted one of
7:13 am
italy's most beautiful towns. some of its buildings have stood for 600 years. now it's a ruin. people returned briefly to salvage the few possessions they have left. francesco loft five friends. >> panic and cry and scared. i'm scared. >> reporter: the dust rising still like the death toll in this shaken town. this morning's aftershock rattled buildings and rattled nerves as well. some of the dead will be buried in a state funeral here tomorrow. at least a dozen foreign tourists are among the dead but no americans among the dead or the injured. savannah, matt? >> bill neely at the quake scene for us. thank you very much. also this morning, a disturbing crime is rocking a mississippi community and making headlines all around the world. the bodies of two nuns found inside their home. they had been stabbed to death. their car stolen and abandoned not far away.
7:14 am
janet shamlian has the latest on the investigation. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. this was a horrific crime. two women who devoted their lives to helping others brutally murdered in their own home in what's a small rural community that hasn't seen a murder in many years. police are searching for their killer. this morning a community in shock at the deaths of two nuns described as the kindest people on earth. nurse practitioner sister paula merrill and sister margaret held. police found them brutally murdered in the home they shared in the small community of durant after a supervisor at their clinic reported the pair did not show up for work. the local archdiocese telling nbc news there was a sign of a break in and their blue corolla was missing. the car was found abandoned late last night, less than a mile from their home. father greg knew the sisters well.
7:15 am
>> they came to mississippi to outreach to the poor using their medical services and expertise. i'm sure their faith is what got them through this tragedy, and it's going to get us through this tragedy of mourning them. >> reporter: sister margaret was from wisconsin. she was focused on eliminating racism and poverty in the region. >> this is one of the poorest counties in all of mississippi. >> we make a difference in people's lives and never know what that difference is. >> reporter: sister paula has been helping mississippi's less fortunate for more than 30 years. >> we see patients and do what needs to be done. >> reporter: two women driven to help others victims in their own home. police believe that it might be someone local because their car was taken, but it was found abandoned just a short distance away. this morning the clinic where the women worked is closed, allowing their co-workers time to grieve. matt, back to you. >> thank you very much.

7:18 am
parker, whose son needed the product for his peanut allergy, promoted the use of epipens. thursday the actress cut ties, lashing out on instagram. i'm left disappointed, saddened, and deeply concerned by mylan's actions. it's just the latest drug company to come under fire for high drug costs. seven months ago, martin shkreli testified before congress after his company hiked up the price of hiv and malaria medication 5,000%. >> it started last year and now with the epipen focus it's snowballed and every drug maker wants to avoid being in that position. >> mylan will offer a coupon and financial assistance but some lawmakers have dismissed that as a pr move. one tampa bay area company says it will sell epipens at cost with no markup. savannah? >> kristen welker in washington, thank you. >> mr. roker, what else do you have?

while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto. nobody's hurt, but there will still be pain.
