states. trump's not addressing that. the campaign says he should get credit for stopping the birther movement because it was donald trump who originally got the president to find and put forward publicly his birth certificate. donald trump will likely face tough questions as he campaigns at his new hotel in washington today. his campaign announced overnight that trump is no longer a birther, that he believes president obama was born in the united states. but trump himself refused to answer that question, telling "the washington post," i just don't want to answer it yet. >> he still wouldn't say hawaii. he still wouldn't say america. this man wants to be our next president? when will he stop this ugliness. >> reporter: hillary clinton speaks to african-american women in washington today. last night she and president

she's been performing in movies and television since clinton was first lady. after clinton had a health issue at the 9/11 memorial, many people asked her if the clinton campaign hired her as a body double. some taking to twitter asking if she was in new york on sunday. she replied, quote, maybe i was. it turned out to be a joke. >> i was a little upset that i had been pulled into this body double controversy and my picture had come along with that as well. i kind of thought, okay, if somebody is going to mess with me, i'm going to mess with them. >> oh, my god. look at that. there they are side by side. it turns out barnwell was in los angeles. she and clinton have met before. it was in 1996 in l.a. during a clinton book signing for "it takes a village." >> she's a method actress. she rests when hillary clinton
rests. >> totally. trying to keep this all straight. the house intelligence committee is slamming edward snowden this morning as others push for a pardon. >> scott mcgrew, the house committee's timing intentional? >> it was. the committee members want you to think of snowden as a bad guy, someone who hurt the united states as calls for a pardon grow. the timing coincides with the release of the new oliver stone movie about snowden. i have not seen the movie, but i understand it paints him in a very sympathetic light. the worry is people are going to confuse a movie story with real facts. edward snowden is played by joseph gordon leavitt, but snowden has a am i don't at the end of the film. gordon leavitt is going to use his salary to make documentaries and videos about privacy. swedish courts held up the
arrest warrant for julian assange. under the law, if he steps out, britain has to arrest him on the swedish charge. he'll be expedited to the united states on spying charges. the news before the bell, landon dowdy is live at cnbc world headquarters. good morning, landon. >> happy friday to you. wall street starting off in the red. futures are lower this morning, and european markets are down as well, as bank stocks are getting hit with germany's deutsche bank the big loser, saying the justice department is asking for $14 billion to settle a mortgage fraught case. investors will also be watching data today as we get reports on consumer prices and consumer sentiment, and keep an eye on apple. the stock is having its best week in five years as the iphone 7 hits stores today. the dow rising 177 points thursday at 18,212.
the nasdaq up 75 to 5,239. >> apple up like 21% for the quarter. we've got this tradition of standing in line for apple things. this makes no sens people! this is palo alto. here is the deal. you can pre order the apple iphone 7 and ups will deliver it to your house this morning, or you can stand in this line and get the same phone. if you are standing in this line for the iphone 7 plus, you cannot get one because they're sold out. a woman from apple just ran that line back and forth saying if you're standing in line for iphone 7 plus, you aren't going to get one. option one is you stand in line for something apple will give you anyway or stand in line for something you can't have. have i made myself clear? >> yes. we can also watch a concert on tv or we can be there. zblt by the way, did you catch

==kris/rail== contrictn between dond trp - and his o campai.... and it all surrounds the birth all new this morning on the campaign trail, contradiction between donald trump and his own campaign all rounding, again, where president obama was born. overnight trump's campaign announced he now believes president obama was born in the united states, but trump himself refused to say that, telling "the washington post," i just don't want to anner it yet. for the record, president obama was born in a hawaii. for years trump was a big supporter of the birther
movement which claimed the president was born outside the country. donald trump now says it was hillary clinton who started that controversy back when she was campaigning against barack obama in 2008. both trump and clinton will be in washington, d.c. today. >> i think we can safely say we're witnessing an understand precedented presidential campaign. you may not know it also marks a major shift in the centers of political powers in the country when it comes to campaign money. >> stephen stock followed the money and found that silicon valley eclipsed hollywood in the amount of campaign giving. >> not only has silicon valley now eclipsed hollywood in the amount of money it gives to major federal campaigns, it's now one of the top three industries in the total amount of dollars spent given around the country. that's right. it's remarkable when you consider less than two decades ago silicon valley was only a bit player in the national political conversation. according to the federal campaign records, northern
california gave nearly $225 million to political candidates compared to southern california which gave a little more than $200 million. our analysis also shows that nearly two-thirds of all that money went to presidential candidates who are out-of-state races for u.s. senate. why? it's simple. experts say big money donors know most races here are not that competitive and often pit democrat against democrat. if they want to sway a race, they have to go out of state to get more bang for their buck. especially nine toss-up senate races in states like florida, wisconsin, nevada and pennsylvania. if you want to know more about where all this money is going, we've teamed up to create a special website called voters edge to give you non-partisan information about all the elections taking place in california. you can find it on our website.
