taking off for cuba. >> very emotional moment for many people. this is the first commercial flight to cuba from the u.s. in more than 50 years. good morning, crossing t good morning, crossing the border. donald trump announces a surprise trip to mexico for a private conversation with the mexican president on the same day he's set to make a major speech on immigration. could this unexpected meeting hint at a dramatic policy reversal? we'll ask his campaign manager live. in the path. a major storm in the gulf strengthens overnight as tens of millions in florida brace for winds and flooding. we're tracking it live. stars stand off. chris brown out on bail on weapons charges after a stalemate with police that played out on social media. the embattled singer accused of
threatening a woman at gunpoint in his home. what the star is now saying about that incident. fiery escape. the driver at a gas station backs into a pump, sparking a dangerous fire. the car behind him igniting with two children inside. how their mother sprang into action and helped save their lives. today, wednesday, august 31, 2016. this is "today" from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on this wednesday morning. big, surprising news from donald trump overnight coming on twitter. >> we knew he would give a big immigration speech today. now we found out he's going to travel to mexico and meet with the president there. >> donald trump sent out a tweet saying he's going to mexico to meet with the mexican president.
that before the highly anticipated speech on immigration. that comes later on this evening. we are going to hear from his campaign manager about the surprise trip in a moment. let's begin with nbc's hallie jackson. >> reporter: good morning. already this morning serious new backlash against donald trump's trip to mexico with the country's former president saying we don't want him, we don't like him and we reject his visit and calling the current mexican president a traitor for this. for donald trump after a campaign full of twists and turns this surprise sit down may be one of his biggest yet. >> reporter: before his speech on securing the border, a trip across it as donald trump accepts the invitation of the mexican president. >> the current president of mexico said he would meet with you. will you meet with him? >> yeah, sure. >> you would? >> absolutely. >> today's high stakes face-to-face a moment maybe no
one saw coming after trump announcing the candidacy said this about mexicans. >> they are bringing drugs. they are bringing crime. they're rapists and some, i assume, are good people. >> reporter: the backlash mediate with trump even now saying he'll get mexico to pay. >> mexico will be paying for the wall. >> reporter: that plan getting fierce pushback from the former mexican president. >> i'm not going to pay for that [ bleep ] wall. he should pay for it. >> reporter: and the current one, comparing trump to hitler and mussolini before back tracking. now a softer tone as pena nieto said, i will be respectful and work with whomever is elected in november. eight in ten hispanic voters see trump unfavorably. pena nieto struggling to win approval at home.
both men looking for the chance for a major political moment. trump's trip today coming ahead of an immigration speech in phoenix tonight where he'll try to clarify his muddled message. it is still not clear how trump will handle the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants here but a top campaign aide said he is expected to call for stricting work site enforcement, better visa tracking and an end to so-called sanctuary cities. sources in mexico say the embassy advised trump's team against the visit. clinton was invited also. a campaign official said she will do so at the appropriate time. back to you. >> we'll talk more about it. thank you very much. >> kellianne conway is donald trump's campaign manager. good morning. >> good to see you. >> this is a last-minute trip, isn't it? >> maybe it's been revealed publically last minute but mr. trump was excited to accept the invitation from the president in
mexico. he wants to establish a conversation with a neighboring country, a leader. and also to discuss the common problems and challenges that our country is facing. >> you are using diplomatic language, something donald trump hasn't done with mexico. i don't think there is much disagreement about that. is he a guy that will go to the mexican president and use that same blunt language? 11 million immigrants are going back. you're going to get a bill for the border wall. or will he try a gentler approach. >> you will see a presidential donald trump at the meeting in mexico. we are happy the president invited him. i'm sorry hillary clinton is not going. she keeps following the leader here. we are the leader. people are needed in louisiana, we are there. the president in mexico invites us, we accept the invitation. to have a productive conversation about immigration,
trade policy and drugs. >> later today in arizona donald trump will deliver an address on immigration. at the end of the speech are we going to know exactly what his policy on immigration is as it pertains to the 11 million immigrants in this country illegally? >> yes, you will. too often, matt, typical politicians tell you, hey, the sound bite now specifics at a time to be determined. it's presidential to go lay out the policies ahead of time. >> the campaign created its own confusion on the issue. at the end of the day are we going to hear the there will be a deportation force and those 11 million people living illegally in this country now will have to leave before some of them have the chance to come back? >> you are going to hear many things from mr. trump. one, no amnesty. absolutely going to build the wall. that's been the center of his campaign from day one. he'll repeal the executive orders president obama put in
place. you want to work with congress. >> in fairness those are the positions that as far as anyone can tell he hasn't changed. in the primary he was as clear as day about it. every single last illegal immigrant, whether criminal or not, if they are here illegally, they are going back. he did not mince words. are we going to hear it today? does he plan to round up and deport every last illegal immigrant starting on day one? >> you are going to hear how he's going to just 11 million and others as well including sanctuary cities. there is no reason angel moms like agnes, julie, no reason people should have to lose their children at the hand of an illegal immigrant murdering them. hillary clinton is for that. he's not. it couldn't be more clear. in terms of changing positions i have memorized 22 of them for hillary clinton. keystone pipeline, you could ask her if she would talk to the press.
we are happy with the strategy to be open with the press, to go over the border to mexico to meet with the president, go back to arizona to give an immigration speech. she was in the hamptons raising money. >> since you are here, are we going to see a reversal of the policy? >> you will not see a reversal. if you look at his speech at the convention which is when you accept the republican nomination, you lay out the vision as president. he didn't talk about deportation. he makes it clear he hasn't changed his position in terms of enforcing law. do you know what might happen if we enforced the immigration laws in this country? i don't. we never bothered. we have i.c.e., law enforcement, other people that should be consulted and should be part of the spectrum of responsible actors here. that's not happening in this administration. mrs. clinton made it clear she would flot follow that either. we'll enforce the law. >> if you could get me a pass to be a fly on the wall in the meeting south of the border. >> that would be a good one.
>> thanks for joining us. >> more politics to talk about. three high profile incumbents won the primaries on tuesday, each setting the stage for a general election showdown in november. in arizona, senator john mccain fought off the challenge from a republican tea party activist winning the right to seek a sixth term. senator marco rubio cruised to victory in florida after reversing a pledge that he wasn't going to seek re-election. in florida, representative debbie wasserman schultz beat back a challenger after she had to step down as chairperson of the democratic national committee. a storm expected to become tropical storm hermine later today. a hurricane watch has been announced as the state braces for heavy rainfall. major flooding and surging waves. dylan is in for al with the latest on this. >> we have been waiting for the storm to develop into a tropical storm. it is still a depression and
moving slowly. it is going to become a tropical storm, most likely later on today. tropical depression 8, the one off north carolina, is moving out to sea. that's no longer going to be an issue. here are the hurricane watches right in the big bend of florida. this is the area we are looking at the strongest winds and also for the chance of a storm surge up to 3 to 6 feet above high tide. that could lead to coastal flooding. in addition, we are seeing heavy rain move through tampa. the storm will take the turn. the track shifted a little farther to the north. it includes charleston, south carolina, by saturday. they could see tropical storm conditions with as much as five inches of rain. it is this area in pink here. that's where we could end up seeing as much as 10 to 15 inches of rain. that's going to be the reason we could see massive flooding. we want to point out two storms in the pacific. we have madeline which is weakening and lester which is a category four storm. madeline stays to the south of hawaii while lester stays to the
north. we could see 10 to 15 inches of rain in hawaii. >> i remember when it was tropical depression 99-l. >> it was upgraded to depression. >> thanks, dylan. >> now to a major development in the fight against isis. the terror group's number two in command has been reportedly been killed following an air strike in syria. let's go to richard engel, he's got the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. the u.s. has been tracking this man for many years. in fact, he spent years in u.s. custody in iraq until he was released. he's one of the founding members of isis, but as of now it's unclear that he really died. he's one of the world's most wanted terrorists with many titles. isis recruiter, spokesman, second in command, syrian born abu muhammad al-adnani.
he's best known for lone wolf attacks in the west, an appeal directly linked to the spike in isis attack this is summer in turkey, across europe and the orlando nightclub massacre. the pentagon called al-adnani the principal architect of isil's external operations adding his removal from the battlefield would mark another significant blow to isil. but is he dead? the media arm says he was killed while supervising military operations against aleppo. u.s. officials confirm al-adnani with the $5 million american bounty on him was targeted yesterday. u.s. officials are not confirming that he was killed. isis could certainly replace al-adnani but losing such a key figure, the organization's public voice, would be a setback. >> thank you.
here at home with the election 68 days away a top secret u.s. intelligence group is looking into russia's alleged election-related hacking. nbc news justice correspondent pete williams joins us with more on that. pete, what can you tell us about the group and don't say they are top secret. >> it's a group with a name out of the cold war. the foreign denial and deception committee. one of the positions is to track and analyze these recent russian cyber attacks. u.s. officials say the russians did try and fail to get into arizona's on line voter registration system. then successfully penetrated a similar system in illinois and copied a small fraction of the data but didn't appear to change it in any way. elections are conducted by the states, not by the federal government. state officials say it would be much harder for the russians or any outsider, for that matter, to hack into the completely separate individual devices that count the actual votes.
states, for example, that use optical scanners where you fill in the circles on the paper ballot and feed it to a scanner still have that as a backup. security experts warn the touchscreen systems without a paper backup still in wide use are more vulnerable, especially to an insider hack, matt. >> the degree of nervousness if you could characterize it now in the intelligence community would be what, pete? >> reporter: the degree is high they are trying to influence confidence. i would say low that they are trying to manipulate results. intelligence officials say, for example, they doubt the russians are trying to help the trump campaign though congressional democrats asked the fbi this week to look at it. the current thinking is even if the russian hackers can't manipulate the actual vote their goal appears to be a broader one -- to under mine confidence in the election system. >> pete williams in washington. thank you. >> outrage is growing on
stanford's campus ahead of brock turner's release from jail on friday. the former college athlete was given what some consider a six month sentence for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman. he served just three months of the sentence. here's the latest. >> reporter: good morning. come friday, brock turner will have served three months here in protective custody, half of a sentence that many found appalling considering the crime. it was a conviction and lenient sentence that stirred a national uproar. former stanford swimmer brock turner set to be released friday from jail after serving just 90 days following three felony convictions for sexually assaulting an unconscious female. the victim's letter of outrage to turner going viral, viewed nearly 18 million times. in it she said you cannot give me back the life i had before that night.
vice president joe biden weighing in with an emotional letter to the young woman writing, a lot of people failed you, i believe you. it's not your fault. all of this igniting a fire storm against santa clara superior court judge aaron persky who presided over the case. nearly 1.8 million people signed a petition for him to be removed from the bench. he voluntarily stepped down from criminal court. now will preside only over civil court trials. california state legislators made changes, recently passing a bill to the governor closing a loophole allowing for such short sentences. under the law if the case was tried today turner would serve a minimum three years behind bars. turner has been banned from ever setting foot on campus again but left an indelible mark on stanford university. >> this case shows if you commit sexual assault to an unconscious woman on the stanford campus in california that you spend a
summer internship in jail. >> reporter: turner is expected to be released from jail here any time after midnight on friday. sources here tell us he will receive no special treatment. we know he will have to report to probation for three years which means frequent drug tests and no alcohol. he will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. >> gadi schwartz, thank you. >> today marks a first in over half a century as u.s. airlines began commercial service to cuba for the first time since 1961. kerry sanders is in ft. lauderdale where he'll buckle up for the ride. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning from the cockpit of jetblue f 387. we'll be traveling here shortly. i have to move to my seat but this will be a one hour and eight minute flight into history. this morning americans can once again buy a commercial airline ticket and fly from the u.s.

relations between our countries are once so tense that the u.s. navy blocked the comings and goings of cuba you can understand why many historians never thought americans with their passports would be able to get on an american plane and fly back and forth to cuba. >> all right, kerry. thank you very much. kerry making a lot of friends preboarding the flight. >> couldn't get the aisle though. kerry, thank you very much. >> have a good flight. >> dylan is back with the busy weather map. >> yes. we are going to see tropical downpours in florida but also with the cold front we could see isolated storms across the eastern great lakes extending into the plains and through northern texas with heavy rain. that's a look at the weather across the country. your local forecast is coming up in just 30 seconds. also, his name is sous. no. sloppy joseph. a middle-aged man who's trying to get his life together, but he can't - he's to sloppy. huhhh - no! here you go. i got this. i get cash back so it's like everything's on sale. with the blue cash everyday card from american express you get cash back on purchases with no annual fee.

to 15 inches of rain but we have the potential of a storm surge of up to three to six feet above high tide. again that's thursday night. that could lead to coastal out the window, south bay feels more like spring perhaps, temperatures in the 60s. maybe a bit more like fall around the north bay. low 50s earlier. and for the afternoon around livermore, high today climbing into the mid-80s. pretty pleasant finish to your afternoon, with temperatures in the low 80s around san jose, upper 60s san francisco. north bay, numbers in the 80s. 70 closer to oakland. 82 in fremont. dublin, 84. walnut creek, 87 this afternoon. and that's your latest forecast. matt? >> all right. thank you very much. day three of the series cost cutting today. we have tackled everyday bills. this morning we're talking about medical expenses with health care costs and prescriptions on the rise, never
too soon to prepare for the future. back this morning to talk us through it all is "today" financial editor jean chatzky. >> good morning. >> i was looking at some of the numbers last night and the research, the cost of health care even if you don't have a major medical emergency, staggering. >> they are. the problem with health care is people don't look at it like shopping for a car. it hasn't been so transparent. that's changing. we have tips. >> you have some statistics that are alarming. only 34% of people know their health care costs. >> or what they think they will be for the coming year according to the consumerism health care index from allegiance. only 23% save for future health care and this one gets me. about a quarter of people didn't fill a prescription because of the cost. this gets expensive because you get sicker. >> when you come here you almost always tell people they need to make educated choices. talk about ways we can do that. >> okay.
this is the biggie. if you can put pretax dollars into a flexible spending account or a health savings account you shave a third of the cost off your medical care, there goes my hand, and it can be used for pretty much anything, not just prescriptions, but doctor visits and almost everything except for over-the-counter prescriptions. >> can you explain the difference between these two? >> sure. a flexible spending account, you put money in and have to use it but a certain date offered by your employer. a health savings account is something anybody qualifies for if they have a high deductible health insurance policy. but any silver or bronze policy on the exchange will get you in. >> just like if you are going to shop for a car or appliance, do some comparison shopping. >> 17% of people. only 17% shop around for prescriptions. that's a huge mistake. because the prices can vary by 100%, 200% for the same drugs, particularly buying out of
pocket. good rx is an on-line tool that will help you figure out what is a fair price for the drugs. >> you talked about the price and how they vary for drugs and medications. go to procedures. this is where it gets alarming. up to a 500% difference in a procedure cost. >> right. if you want to know what a procedure should cost in your i area the resource is something called the health care bluebook like the car bluebook that exists on-line and then, if you get medical bills and you feel like you need help lowering the costs, copatient.com is a service that will tell you what the fair price is for the procedures you've had and if you can't do it yourself they will negotiate it for you and take 35% of the money that they save you. >> this is one of the discount type -- use a discount program? >> so discount programs are for prescriptions. these are widespread. these are all companies that
have essentially negotiated with the drug companies because they buy a lot of drugs overall. so you get yourself aligned with one of the programs, scriptrelief, search rx. >> i think nbc did a story on that. >> a great piece. but you want to get into one of these particularly if you don't have a prescription plan. >> and don't be afraid to ask your doctor for a less expensive alternative to treatment. >> right. generics. you say to your doctor standing in the office, i can't afford this medication or if you get to the pharmacy you ask the pharmacist, pharmacists are fantastic resources. but if you truly can't afford them, the prescription -- partnership for prescription assistance, is an organization you should get in touch with. tell them the medication you need, if you have benefits and they will help you figure it out. also shop at costco and online pharmacies. but make sure that any on-line pharmacy you work with is based in the u.s. and has a sign op
its website that it's a verified internet farm. >> i that's very important. >> jeanne, as always thank you very much. let us head outside to carson, savannah and a very special guest. >> thank you, matt. our special guest this morning, olympic champion simone manuel. in rio simone won gold in the 100 meter freestyle and a place in the history books as the first african-american woman ever to win an individual gold in swimming. >> she was also part of a superstar 4 x 100 medley relay team that gave the team the 1,000th olympic gold medal of all time. >> good morning. >> good to see you. >> how many times have you had the experience where i said, can i touch it? >> too many times. >> too many. i know. your neck had to get stronger because these are heavy, this hardware. >> yeah. about 1.1 pounds each. i have about 4.4 pounds on my neck. >> let's put that photo up. i got chills thinking about it. when you realized and looked back at the clock, realized you won. you were the first individual gold medal african-american woman.
i mean, tell me about what moment, what was going on in your mind. >> i think there was just a lot of relief to see my hard work pay off and see number one by my name is a really exciting. i was kind of relieved. just to be the first african-american woman to do that is humbling that i could be the person to make history. i'm hoping to inspire people to get into the sport because swimming is a water saving skill. i love it. >> want to hear something great, she gation to go back to stanford, for her junior year. do you know who else joins her on the swim team? katie ledecky. >> you're a junior? >> yes. >> and katie will be a freshman. >> yes. >> you will be unstoppable. >> hope so, yeah. >> we were talking before and saying are you going to bring your medals to school? they are heavy. >> yes. >> but your friends will want to see. >> yes. i'm hoping to bring one. i think i have to convince my dad. he's protective of them. i would like to bring one just for a while.
